Early Tuesday Morning Supposed = to Be The Work of a FireBug The bridge on the Columbia and Camp bellsville turnpike spanning Green River burned early Tuesday morning the fire supposed to have been of incendiary orgin We learn from Mr J B Barbee proprietor of the Columbia and Campbellsville Stage Line that when t his mail wagon reached the bridge at 430 oclock Tuesday morning the driver Mr John Stone discovered the fire which was only on the Columbia end and seeing that he could cross dashed into the bridge After crossing he drove rapidly to the stage barn and in formed the hostler and Mr Henry Sub r lett of the fire but when these gentle men reached the scene the conflagra tion had gained such headway that the structure was doomed The burning of the bridge will be a very serious delay to the business interests of this section but the mail passengers and express will be carried across the river in a canoe the hacks meeting the traffic on either bank We learptrat a ferry will be built as rap idly as possible At the hour of going to press we can not learn whether the bridge will be rebuilt or not but the supposition is that the Turnpike Co will immediately perfect plans for a new structure STATEMENT FROM PAUL AZBILL Mr Paul Azbill returned from De troit last Saturday evening and in con versation with a News man gave the following statement concerning the au tomobile accident jn that city in which he was an occupant in the car and which was published in an ugly light in a Louisville paper on December the 18th The report that reached the pa per was far from being correct and Mr Azbills statement is here given that the truth may be known Mr Scrimger and wife of Detroit were inI the front seat Mr Day of Detroit anti myself were on the back seatI The man was struck because he lost his presence of mind and jumped in front of the car Mr Scrimger thinking to protect to protect his wife from the publicity of such an accident drove on some distance placed her on a street rar and returned to the scene of the accident The attempted concealment of his wifes presence occasioned the fiction that was circulated through the newspapers CAPTAIN PEACOCK SOLD Mr W L Grady Sells His Fine Young Stallion to a Texas Man Mr W L Grady the owner and breeder of many fine Peacock horses has just sold his beautiful and valuable horse Captain Peacock to W W Compton of Honey Grove Tex for 1000 Captain Peacock is a model in form and carries as much rich blood in his veins as anj horse in this state He is only 3 years old but has won the blue from the Big Sandy to the Pur chase cleaning the ring in his class every where he has been shown This sale is the best price ever paid for an Adair county horse of his age but while this is true yet he is one of the best bred ones that ever left the county or so far as that is concerned that ever met the breezes of the Lone Star State While Adair county parts from this promising young horse there are still others left and the gain in the deal favoring Texas is a matter of pride and good business sense displayed by the purchaser We congratulate both seller and buyer and if the people of Honey Grove fail to appreciate Mr Comptons judgment and fail to tumble over one another in their effort to pat ronize such an animal then we can only say that that section does not date back to its Kentucky ancestry It isa Seal that doubtless means much for the production of highclass horses in Texas r g Mr J P Dohoney Sr who has spent several weeks visiting his daugh ter Mrs C M Murrell in Elida New Mexico a short time ago stated on his return that she was improved in health and was getting along as well as could be expected She has been indelicate health for more than a year and has tried different States to find an invigorating climate and it is to be hoped that present indications will prove the boon of her desires and that of her husband Dr C M Murrell who has made such sacrifice in busi ness to find a climate better suited for her ailments NEARLY 23 HUNDRED DOGS Mr M C Winfrey who has been compiling the assessors book informs us that he finds listed 2246 dogs The magisterial district composed of White Oak and Little Cake lead the county with 366 purps We dare say that if every canine in Adair county had been listed it would have reached 3000 the number of shee- pCOUNTRYA GREAT IsMrG W Robertsons Opinion of New Mexico The following letter to Mr B F Neat of Neatsburg from Geo W Robertson of Elida N M is chuck full of information in regard to the land which is drawing so many good citizens away from Adair county Elida N M 121206 MR B F NEAT Neatsburg Ky MY DEAR SIR Your letter of recent date making in quiry concerning the prospects of this country to hand and I will answer the best I can Elida has doubled in population since July the 1st and yet people are flocking in from everywhere The real estate men say the land for 20 miles in every direction has been filed on but that relinquishments can be bought from 100 to 1500 owing to the loca tion and deeded land from 1000 to 5000 improvements and location con sidered Now Mr Neat you ask my opinion I am well pleased with the country and to prove my faith will say I am investing in town and have a bid on 320 acres of deeded land and am only afraid I will not get it Of course I do not want any of my friends to act from what I say but I do not think any man would make a mistake in coming here One piece of deeded land 1 mile East of town sold last Saturday for 3400 Our bank The First Nationalwhich opened its doors on the 28th of May now has a deposit of 70000 If you come we want your business and I guarantee you will be treated right- I will be in Kentucky in January or February for a short visit I will send you a

DINNER Last Christmas day was the 44th thisrcity and combining the events of that eventful day he was served with a de lightful dinner at his home several friends being present The greatest surprise on the bill of fare came in the form of an 8 pound watermelon saved for that purpose by Mr Frank Shepherd of Cane Valley who was present to enjoy the dinner and share in the good will of Mr Morri melnon was sweet and delicious and so perfect that it would have kept much lon ger It is a rare occurrence to eat watermelon on Christmas day A GENEROUS MAN BlessedeTo Give Than Receive Since the acts and deeds of the many givers in Christmas times are so nar rowed down to the narrow limits where personal favors may be expected in re turn or where family ties enter we feel that it is but justice to make pub lic and commend any one who departs from this seemingly selfish living and in accord with this feeling and our knowledge we desire to say that Mr J S Stapp has evidently set an exam pIe for this community and gave full and complete eviaence of his liberality and good will for others outside of his immediate care In advance of the holidays he purchased a large box of beautiful pictures in neat frames bibles and other books and for more than ten days the distribution went on manysus them as in his judgment he deemed best and doubtless accomplished much good in so doing EXCELLENT DINNER Mr and Mrs Allen Walker gave a Christmas dinner to six of their friends that was presided over by Mr father Mr J D Walker of this city The select few less one met at the pointed hour at their beautiful home o Greensburg street and spent several hours in social conversation and partic ipated in one of the most excellen- feasts of the Christmas holidays I was a most enjoyable evening to all theyrthose who gave it Those fortunate enough to answer by their presence were Hon J F Montgomery Judge W W Jones J 0 Russell R F Paull and James Garnett The absent one was the unfortunate but truly appreciated the invitation that was ex tended to be a part of the merry feast- ers rPAGE DOHONEY The above name represents the style of the drug firm of which Dr J N Page and Mr L G Dohoney are mem

of the Gradyville Bap tist church gave an entertainment in their church on Saturday evening and Sunday forenoon that were highly en tertaining in every particular Too much praise cannot be given those who faithfully assumed the responsibilities and whose devotion and untiring ener gy brought the realization of their fond est hopes We are not in position to give in full a complete synopsis of the program nor to mention every feature probably that deserves special mention but in justice to the ladies having it in charge and in justice to the unstinted aid given them and the highly satisfac tory manner in which each participant rendered part in completing and round ing up these delightful entertainments we feel that we must speak of the most attractive features as we under stand them The Church was beauti fully decorated and a large crowd present ion each occasion which brought the receipts up to expectations and gave cheer to the many who participated in the exercises Mrs J A Diddle Mrs Ella Y Robinson and Mr L C Hill were the organists and performed in a mostentertaining manner Mr W M Wilmore made one of the best Missionary and Christmas speeches that has been heard for many a day and it was productive of much good The prayers offered by Mr Wilmore C 0 and Hartfield Moss were impressive on so joyful an occasion which manifested t their deep interest in the object and rejsuIts to be accomplished The children of the society all acquitted themselves- in a highly complimentary manner while the vocal music was selected and render ed under the lead of Mr J S Stapp Briefly stating it was a success in every particular and highly gratifying in many instances The liberal contribu tion made by Mr Stapp to the church and society deserves special mentionIfor from the

JvIfyou will allow me a little space in your columns I will at tempt to give you a few of the happenings and also tell you what I have seen during my stay in California Oakland is only five miles from Frisco and any one can catch a ferry boat every 20 minutes across the Bay The Southern Pacific Company have cars that will take you to the ferries and there is also an electric line that runs out across the bay about three miles and there makes connection with ferry boats so this almost makes Frisco and Oakland as one only five miles of water between There is not much need of me attempting to tell anything about the ruined city only it is as bad at you can possibly pict ure it in your imagination Peo ple who have never viewed the ruins think newspapers have quoted it wrong but after they spend a day or so in Frisco they will certainly change their minds when they see 20 square miles of wreck and ruin which amounts to about 25000000 and the number of persons rendered homeless about 75000 The people who were indeed home less and without money fell to the mercies of the people of the United States and you might say the whole world They still live in tents and temporary quar ters and the question now is how are the authorities going to get the people who are living in the parks and other places to find more suitible homes Fris co is rebuilding beyond any ones expectations Carpenters r e c e i ve 5 for 8 hours and I could not tell how many carpen ters there are in Frisco and Oakland but I think there are aboutI 5000 and you can imagine the amount of money being spent
