CreelsbOr The Need Very Apparent Since the Green River bridge burned the people of this section are realizing where they are With almost impassi ble roads to Greensburg and Creelsboro and no way to get freight from Camp bellsville great expense and inconvenience are being experienced and as the Winter progresses the seriousness of the situation will be more fully real ized Just how soon the pike will be restored to its usefulness by the build ing of a bridge or the establishing of a ferry no one seems to know and accepting the most plausible theory that of finding a bridge company with a structure of right dimensions it cannot be built for several months At any rate present conditions ought to teach uf all how important it is for Columbia and Adair county to have more than one outlet From Columbia to Greens burg it is 18 miles From Columbia to Creelsboro it is about the same dis tance The people of both sections are nderstood as being anxious to join in e buildingof apike to Columbia but accomplishing the building of either ill require organized effort on the rt of our most enterprising citizens- e had a good road to Creelsboro it ild save the people of Adair county asands of dollars in freight annua- lf we had a solid road to Greens j it would open competition and er our facilities for reaching the oad ith nothing but the best feeling for ipbellsville and the company thatI is the pike Columbia and Adair ity ought to see the importance of ching a competitive source for jping and get out of the present ation A pike to Creelsboro would bbably be worth more to the county d to Columbia than one to Greens rg River freighVis far less than lilroad The government will soon lave the river navigable the entire ear yet we can not reach it Again we say wake up dear people wake up strike while the iron is hot the mud deep and the bridge gone ELDER L WILLIAMS Called to the Pastorate of the Christian Church at Phoenix Arizona Rev L Williams who has been pas tor of the Christian church in Carroll ton for several years past has accepted a call to the Christian Church at Phoe nix Arizona This church we under stand is the strongest Christian church in Arizona Territory Phoenix is the capital of the territory and in 1900 had 5544 inhabitants Rev Williams should feel it a high compliment to be called to this pastorate He has al most become one of us Carrolltonians and none of us feel like saying good bye to him He has labored long and well in our community and made his c impression on our whole people He has fought a good fight and will leave enjoying the love respect and confi dence of all our citizens But for his efforts in season and out the Chris tian church which is now one of the neatest buildings in our community would never have been remodledCar jrollton Democrat Eld Williams is the son of Eld Z T Williams and a former pastor of the Christian Church in this city It is needless for us to say anything in commendation of Lawrence Williams as his high Christian character and de votion to his work is wellknown here We rejoice with his many friends at this well deserved promotion 83 YEARS HALE AND UEARTYj Last Saturday

live so long and fewer still have celebrated so many aniversaries of their marriage PRESIDENTIAL OFFICE One of the undisputable evidences that the growth of Columbia in pop ulation and in business has been rather rapid and substantial is the fact that the Columbia post office has been made a Presidential office and the salary of the post master fixed at 1100 This change is based on the receipts of the office and in 1905 only lacked a small amount of getting in Last year the receipts measured up to the full requirements SMITHMcCAFFREE Mr W C Smith of Cane Valley and Miss Roberta McCaffree of the Rocky Hill neighborhood were united in marriage the afternoon of January 1st at the home of the brides father The bride is a daughter of Mr Peter C McCaffree and is a very popular young lady Mr Smith

Russell J Last Saturday at lam Mrs Sue Russell died at the residence of her brotherinlaw Mr James M Russell in this city at 1 p m Satur day morning from cancer of the bowels Mrs Russell had been in deli cate health for a number of years suffering frequently with her stomach and when confined to her room about two weeks ago the physicians decided that the illness was due to cancer The deceased was born fifty nine years ago in Wayne county Kentucky and was married to Mr Joseph Russell of this city to which union two children were born Dr Chas M and Joseph Jr both of whom were with her at the hour of death Early in life she professed her Savior joined the Baptist church and could al ways be found in attendance at its meetings when health would permit Her life was such that it proclaimed her a true Christian a veritable mother in Israel going over the land adminis tering to the sick giving a word of cheer to those in distress lending a helping hand to the unfortunateher presence was a benediction and her memory loved by all The entire com munity is in heartfelt sympathy with the bereaved sons ana relatives The funeral services were heldat the residence at 9 oclock Sunday by Rev A R Kasey of the M E Church followed by the interment in the Columbia cemeter- yANOTHERa PEACOCK Brings a Fancy Price Young Cof fey the Purchasers Young and Coffey of Columbia bought from J P Clayton of Creels boro last week one of the most attractive and fine bred saddle stallion ever seen in this part of the country for 600 spot cash and stands 15J handsI perfect in every point Shows exceed ingly fine action and is as pretty in every particular as is possible for a horse to be In fact he measures up to the requirements of a perfect model and moves to suit the most exacting The price paid for him is far above the average price of good ones of his age but we consider him one of the greatest young horses ever seen in this part of the country and besides his purchasers have the reputation of conservative buyers They see a great future for him not only in the market but in the steed as he carries as high breeding as any horse in the State He was sired by Jordan Peacock first dam by Potts Artist 2nd dam by Red Squirrel It is readily seen that a more fancy bred one can not be found in the State combining the blood of three of the greatest families of horse flesh He will be placed under the care of Mr Jo Coffey Jr one of the best trainers in Southern Kentucky and if he fails to prove King of his class in the show rings he will fall far below the expectations of all who have seen him and know his breeding The fact is that he has been purchased to be used in this community not to be placed on the market and if the peo ple fail to recognize his value it will be a great mistake CITIZENS BANK In this issue we publish a statement from the Citizens Bank and invite your attention to it Considering the fact that this Bank opened for business last March a little more than nine months ago it makes one of the best showings of any institution of similar age in Southern Kentucdy Starting with a capital of 15000 a little more than nine months ago its business has stead ily gained until to day its showing com mands the attention of all interested in the welfare of this section Its officers are business men and en joy the confidence of a large acquaint ance which means much ina country like this Mr Jo Coffey the Cashier has spent many years in the banking business occupying the same position he now fills in the Citizens Bank Mr W A Coffey Assistant Cashier has likewise had many years of training and has proven himself in every particular Mr Jp Coffey Jr has filled the station of bookkeeper for several years to the satisfaction of his employers Being so well managed on the inside and back ed and directed by its board of success ful business men its showing is not surprising Read the Statement BRAINS BLOWN OUT BUT RECOVERING t Montia Karnes who lives near Mc Gaha in attempting to discharge a Big Christmas gun met with a very dangerous accident The gun was load edas we are informed nearly to the muzzle and the discharge blew the breechpin out and into Karnes head penetrating the brain The attending physician replaced the brains sewed up the wound and Karnes is now on the road to recovery MRS LUCY BLAIR DEAD Mrs Lucy Blair wife of the late Robert Blair died at her home near Glensfork last Tuesday evening a vic tim of consumption Mrs Blair was a noble Christian lady and her loss will be great to the entire community The deceased is survived by one son Mr Dola Blair The remains were interred Wednesday afternoon at Glensfork NEW BRIDGE Mr George Gowdy President of the Columbia and Campbellsville Turnpike Co informed a News man Monday morning that his company would very probably replace the bridge across Green river but it would be five or six months before the work could be done As we understand it the old price of 150 stage fare from Columbia to Campbellsville has been reestablished This is not excessive for good accom modations for that distance but 25 cents canoeage across Green river does not strike the average person as phil anthropic or even remotely related to that great injunction Do unto others as you would have them do unto you The fact is that it appears to be modern financing on the quarter basis It wont last a century Prof Parker Jackman authorizes us to state that his training school will open the first Monday in February In justice to Prof Jackman we desire to state that he is an able honest faith ful teacher and worker with his people Throughout this section of the state the colored people would do well to send their children to this school Those who are teaching should attend and take the normal course It is time for the colored people to take advantage of their opportunity The beginning of the New Year brought with it the squaring of accounts and for several days the chief business with many has been present ing of statements So far as our expe rience and knowledge goes along this line there has been less grumbling and more paying this time than in any year of the past This of itself speaks well for the people and indicates thrifty conditions Mr U P Morgan of Crocus was in Columbia one day last week for the first time in several months He was severely mashed last Fall and only re cently was able to get out At pres ent he is not fully recovered but is fast improving and we hope within a few more weeks he will again be en tirely well Mr R M Grissom who has spent several years in Guthrie Oklahoma Oklahoma has finally decided to go farther West He is now near Elida New Mexico with a good large possess ion of this earth rich and productive We understand that he expects to de vote his attention to stock raising and shipping Milo Maize Mr S T Evans of Edith this county killed two snakes last week one 45 and the other 49 inches in length This is a rare occurrence to find snakes at this season of the year but for several daysit has been Springlike weather l PROSPEROUS YEARl FOR COLUMBIA How the Adair County Capital Has Fared During 1906 i By Fred McLean in the Evening Post With the close of the year 1906 it can be said by the people of Columbia without fear of contradiction that no year in the past quarter of a century has brought such phenomenal success and prosperity to the little capital of Adair county This prosperous condition of affairs cannot be attributed to any boom but it is just a healthy growth of the entire town and county that bids fair to con tinue on and on until we can be truly called a city among the hills The population of Columbia has jumped from a little over 600 in 1900 to 1000 in 1906 and the value of taxable property has doubled during that period When the town Board of Supervisors met a short time ago they thought it was still not high enough so they pitched in and made raises aggregating over 72000 The valuation of the taxable property in Columbia as fixed by the Equalizing Board is near the halfmillion mark The real secret of the prosperous condition is that there are two good schools From the very time that thetBoard of Education of the Conference decided on Columbia as a location for the Lindsay Wilson Train ing School the town began to take on new life and people commenced to move in and building began By the time the LindsayWilson school was ready to open its doors the M F school which was established here back in the 50s came to the front in a new dress and with many new in ducements for students There are no saloons or places of vice to distract the minds of students in the town and the watchword is morality The year 1906 in business circles according to the statements of the mer chants and banks was the most pros perous one with them in the past ten years and the indications are that 1907 will bless Columbia more bountifully than the year that has just died BANK OF COLUMBIA In another column will be found a statement of the Bank of Columbia at close of business December 31st By reference to it you will find a showing that shows its strength which has been acquired by correct business methods through a period of many years It is the oldest Bank in this part of the country and through all its history has been fortunate in having an able board of directors and a splendid clerical force to meet the demands at the counter At present Mr Jno W Flowers Cashier Mr T An Murrell Assistant Cashier and Mr James Gar nett bookkeeper are all young men well and thoroughly equipped by education and experience to render the very best service both to depositor and bor rower Read its statement The St Bernard Guide of Clem entsvelle Ky edited by Rev A L OShea reached our exchange table last Friday It is a three column four page paper attractive and well edited It is published in the interest of religion education and progress We extend our best wishes to Father OShea and hope The Guide a long and useful life which it will so richly deserve Miss Trannie Sandidge the twelve year old daughter of Rev W H C Sandidge entertained quite a number of her friends last Friday evening by giving a candy pulling It was her twelvth birthday and all present had a pleasant as well asa sweet time Miss Nellie Follis of Columbia was there Mr S M Morgan Pendletonville Texas is visiting his parents and friends near Crocus Mr Morgan has been a resident of Texas for 18 years 4 and judging from his conversation he is IJ I in love with his Western surroundings He will return in two or three weeks Eld Z T Williams will preach for Columbia Cane Valley and Mt Pleas ant again this year Second and fourth Sundays at Columbia first Sun day at Cane Valley and third at Mt Pleasant J y 2 THE ADAIR

Factroy Prices JONHAHOBSON CREENSBURC KY Shall Columbia Continue To Grow BY REV A R KASEY No the town dont grow nothin to make it grown These were the words of a man in a small western town The reason given for stagnation in business was that the farmers pat ronized other towns and that the peo ple in general freely used the mail or der bookI been away from Columbia for four years and the change I now see convinces me of the value of dilli gent effort against whiskey The most orderly Christmas in yearsOne of the very best towns in Ken tucky These are statemenns from substan tial mencitizens of our town and t othersWe are entering on a new year our schools on a new term and if he takes time to think every good citizen will set himself resolutely for the growth of Columbia in every respect- It was the writers pleasure to have read lately in a paper that circulates well throughout the State an article on the desirable features of Columbia Chief among these features were mentioned the moral tone of the town and the faithfulness with which law lessness was being prosecuted And while this vigilance has wrought great good and our officers are worthy of commendation every honest citizens influence is needed in a way that does not call I for specification here The number ofa white men has decreased who are willing to be classed with the lowest element of lawless negroes The writer agrees that any place of business still under the very strong suspicion of encouraging the use or vending of intoxicants should receive the hearty contempt and quiet opposi tion of every man who is for the up building of his town But there are men in Columbia who are clean in busi ness profession and office and public spirited without the stench of graft Such men should receive our support for they make for the permanent pub wealBut every community there are the selfish and we all are in danger of forgetting our neighbor One illustration of this is the fact of how easily the interests of our home merchants are overlooked Some indi rnanipujlationof taxes and the general burdens of society but the merchant usually has to bear his part and yet of all men possibly he receives the least consider ationIn nearly every community there is growing up the mailorder practice and already small cities and rural districts have built up in large cities establish ments with millions of dollars of capital Developed to the limit this would mean the total ruin of any town Suppose every time any body wanted any kind of merchandise he ordered it from Chicago what would become of our merchants If every time a sack of flour or foot of building material was needed it were ordered from Minneapo lis or Nashville what would our millers do If every time one isso fortunate as to have a dollar to deposit he should send it to Cleveland where would our banks be If the novelty of our educa tional institutions wears off their fa cilities are forgotten and our children are sent away what becomes of our schools If when we get sick a physi cian is always ordered up from Burkes ville how will our doctors live Suppose every time a man wanted a hair cut or a tooth pulled he waited for the stated visit of a peregrinating barber or dentist how could our barbers and dentists meet their obligations What would our publishers do if when our business men wanted calendars or other advertising they religiously went to the CourierJournal and we all refused to take our county papers but got our local news by way of Louisville In a word what would any of us do if we all tried to do one another and gave all our support to foreign interests This principle carried out by every body in every thing would make Columbia a town that has been In fifty years from now when a traveler drove up in front of the post office and Montgomery Ward Co ware house a venerable farmer from Bliss as he loaded into his wagon merchan dise shipped from Chicago would tell the stranger that this is where Colum bia used to be A few years ago the head of a semi public institution grumbled because not all the business men were in enthusias tic cooperation with him and he was too selfishly absorbed to discover that the chief reason lay in the fact that every thing that he could get through a post office he ordered from Montgomery Ward Co Chicago- A man in a certain community mark ed a dollar bill and spent it Several times during the year he got it back He finally sent it to Sears Roebuck Chicago He has never seen it since Chicago will grow no matter what you and I do We will decide what Co lumbia shall do Shall she grow NATIONAL CASH REGISTER CO A Good Description of the Plant by An Adair County BoySam- W Bailey DAYTON OHIO Editor News If you will kindly permit me a little space in your columns I will

him on cer tain important questions I want Col Coffey to do me the favor of writing the President a letter asking him to di rect the heads of the various departments of the Government to issue orders placing every position in the entire governmental machinery under civil service including the hog stoppers and cattle feeders at the large distilleries Because I would like to see every office in the united kingdom covered by classified service and then fill the places with men of every political faith both white and black and give them a life deed to their offices or positions Lets go the whole hog or none The President who is the civil service ac robat of the United States is gradually extending the service to every office of the Government and when he has accomplished this he may or may not satisfiedThats put a set of fellows in office and let them remain There are lots of other good Republicans in the country and life long ones too but they are not entitled to anything ex cept to vote to put the other fellows in who are such ardent beleivers in the civil service business If Col Coffey will take this matter up with the Pres ident I am inclined to believe he will gain his point and then when I get back to Arkansas I will tell those farmers out there who have land that will produce two or three bales of cotton per acre that out in Adair county Ky there is a farm called Meadow Lawn that produces corn the cobs of which are most suitable for making cob pipes and on the same farm the stems and the tobacco to smoke is also raised with the probability of sulphur and brimstone

the Columbia Poatoffice as oecon ass mail matter WED JAN 9 1907 It comes within the limits of ordinary newspaper work and often within actual necessity to exagerate or extenuate and while some of the critically in dined are ever ready to point put the defects yet mankind car- r t be enchanted with the sweet strains of praise and the good 55within aroused to the highest point of activity It may be termed taffy to give only the good it may be purely exagera tion when the writer paints the beauty spots in glowing col ors it may be termed weakness or extenuation when he fails to point out every misdemeanor and irregularity within his knowl edge but regardless of such constructions and criticisms of giv ing the good and withholding the bad we believe in using su gar in every thing that will bear it and vinegar only when ab solutely necessary It is the rose and not the thistle that gives cheer the sweet and not the sour that brings comfort and praise of the good rather than censure of the bad that gives hope and ambition The time has come when the intelligence of the country demands decent journalism not only from the large dailies but as truly from the small weeklies and he who successfully guides the destiny of a publication must avoid the witty shuffle of insinuation and prevarication When a local pa per fails to hold its community up as a factor in civilization and
