meeting and was given until to day to finish up was not present and the time for them to re port was again extended The special business for the meeting was the elec tion of Officers for the ensuing year The following were elected- R Y Hindman President- N M Hancock Vice President U L Taylor Secretary- C M Russell and R Y Hindman as sisted by the Sec were appointed pro gram committee for the ensuing year The Society adjourned to meet Thurs day the 10th of January 1907 when the following program will be discussed- E T Sallee Treatment of natural laborJ Hammonds Typhoid fever L C Nell Auto infection j R Y Hindman Senile Hypertrophy of the Prostate Glands N M Hancock Intestinal Carcinoma THE RIGHT SPIRIT Shown By The Citizens of Tutt Ad dition on The Road Question An example worthy of emulation by every man in the county has been set by the citizens residing in Southwest Columbia These gentlemen live in the Tutt addition where no roads have been made but the right of way is deeded to the town and on last Thurs day evening a committee representing the property owners appeared before the city council making the proposition that they would grade the streets in question provided the council would gravel or macadamize them It is need less to state that the council immedi ately accepted the proposition without a dissenting vote and in the near fu ture these citizens will be lifted from the mire as it were and placed upon a solid foundation- In this little instance is a lesson which every man in Adair county interested in good roads would do well to take to heart If you and your neighbor at the proper time would agree and grade a certain piece of road the County Judge and magistrates would see that it was graveled or macadamized and kept in order If they wouldnt assist in this manner we have the wrong men in the wrong places and in office at the wrong time WILL GO TO TENNESSEE MrW D Tarter of Tarter Ky will leave in a few days for Southern Tennessee to make his future Home Mr Tarter has been actively engaged in business in the Eastern end of the county for a number of years and will be greatly missed from that section Miss Fannie Smythe closed her school in the East Columbia District last Tuesday and gladened all the little ones by giving them a nice treat of Oranges and bananas Miss Smythe is one of the countys most popular teachers not only with those under her care but with the parents who appreciate efficiency and good work Nearly all the public schools in this county have closed and the children home enjoying Christmas r JUDGE Of MUNICI PAL COURT I Edwin K Walker Son of Mrs Harriet A Walker Formerly of Adair County I want to let my Adair county friends know through the News that in the late election in Chicago Edwin K Walker was elected a Judge of the Munici pal court and I was pleased when the records showed that there had been polled for him over 1000 more votes than any other one of the sixyear term judges Here is a young man who came to this busy hustling city fifteen years ago poor but with aspirations He had read law some before coming here and continued same by entering North Western University Law School from which he was admitted to the bar Sometime afterward he formed a partnership under the firm name of Brickwood and Walker and engaged in the practice of his profession for several years In 1900 he was nomi nated by the Republican party as a candidate for County Commissioner was elected and served the county three terms of two years each This Fall he became a candidate for Judge with the results as above stated The subject of this sketch is not an Adair county man born but the son of Adair parentage Henry C and Har riet Walker whom many of you know and some of you haye kept in touch with all these years since 1865at the close of the Civil War when we de parted from old Adair to make a home in another State Pardon here just a little reminis cence as the letter is intended for my old friends We located at Forest City Ill Mr Walker engaging in mercantile and grain business Not being of a robust constitution such strenuous work soon told upon him and the close of ten years lifes strug gle with him ended and I was left with my two boys Edwin Kelsy and John Peyton Financial reverses soon followed I fealized I must soon do something my whole desire being to educate my boys and with a courage born of more than human power I assure you I started to accomplish that purpose I sold my home and put our household effects into wagons and started for Lincoln Logan county 111 where there were good public schools and a college I put my boys in school ages 13 and 15 years After three years they paid their own way through collegeJohn P has been a faithful self sacrificing son equally successful in his line of work advancing step by step For some years he has held a very responsible position with the Michigan Southern and Lake Shore Railroad being Chief Clerk of their general freight office down in the city- I have been asked more than once Does it pay to struggle and deny ones self so Yes I say it pays even if we can do nothing more than make opportunity H A W

Mntered at the Columbia Postoffice as second ass mail matter WED DEO 26 1906 The G 0 P in this State is still drifting on the great sea of doubt as to who shall lead in the forlorn hope of capturing the State Government next year For awhile Justice John M Har lan was held up as the Moses but he figured a little and de cided that he was too old to be a sacrificial lamb and informed his friends that he could not make the race On the heels of his declination to lead in the great struggle ExGovernor Wm Bradley was called on to lead the forces but it is safe to say that he too will pass the arduous work of leading Just who will be game enough to take the responsibility is not yet known unless they accept a small caliber for men of Gov ernorship ability are not willing to make such a sacrifice Ac cording to Republican doctrine y cr to let well enough alone a r there is no cause for a change and according to established cus tom in this State no one is ex pecting it The fact is plain to every intelligent politition that there are enough true Dem to elect our ticket by a oJocrats of 30000 and far too many under present circumstances to give even the shadow of hope to the most enthusiastic opponent If Bradley accepts he will be beaten if Wilson takes the honors he will go down and if the other fellow gets in the fight his die is cast The Credit Currency Bill has been endorsed by the House Committee practically as map ped out by the American Bankers Aasociation It provides elasticity so they say and is the antidote in time of panics Ev idently tore musbve something

termed it The per capita never was equal to the present and our country leads all other in this respect yet in the face of thislin the full bloom of prosperity with but little hope of a Democratic victo ry in 1908 a Republican Congress is preparing against a panic Such a stepls not only repudi ating the theory of Republicans that they make sound money and prosperity but that under their full sway they fear evil days The elasticity of which they speak will never stretch over the extravigance of a few more years of greed graft and blunders If Congress should get up a bill to give every farmer cents on every bushel of wheat and corn produced there would go up the strongest protest It would be opposed on the ground of unjust discrimination against other occupations and capital But it is different in the shipping interests so it appears The Ship Subsidy Bill will doubtless become a law without a protest- or rebuke from the people yet it takes the peoples money and gives to ship owners It is unjust discrsmination Class Legis lation The same fellows who op posed free silver are now ready to swallow the scheme to inflate our currency by hot air and play into the hands of the bank ing interests The advocates of sound money ought to be sound in theory even if they cant practice it GRADYVILLE r Our market is well supplied with tobacco We had the largest snow of the season
