Enthusiastic Meeting On very short and limited notice the people of Greensburg and vicinity met at the Court House for the purpose of considering the road question The meeting was enthusiastically business from start to finish every body red hot for a pike to the Adair county line The meeting was presided over by J L Durham one of our hustling mer chants and he was most heartily as sisted in every effort by the other en terprising merchants of the town to gether with the professional men law yers Doctors farmers and every line of business men The discussion of route brought out a number of farmers who offered theI right of way free through their places and said their neighbors would be as liberal as they On motion two gentlemen MessrsI Larkin McGinnis and Jasper Paxton were appointed to view out and secure right of way over two routes suggested J L Durham was chosen as Chair man and J L Wilson as Secretary and under resolution that the Chairman ap point this Committee Mr Durham appointed the following wellknown gentlemen B C Wilson J J 6rad dock S A McSfahan A W Howard Woodson Lewis and J L Wilson The following were appointed by the Chairman E E Perkins E M Blake man Early

meeting No matter in what part of the county you live for you will see further on that this movement is for the good of the whole county The meeting became so very enthu siastic for good roads that a Chairman with power to appoint his own commit tee was appointed for a pike to Exie Donansburg and Summersville Men from the town and men from the county voluntarily pledged the right of way the construction of so much of the pike and liberal donations ofmoneyThis was auwarm meet ing for a mere preliminary meeting Watch us next Tuesday 22 be here and you will see and hear things Heres to you Columbia meet us at the line for we are comingRecord WOODLAWN KY Editor News- I know you to be an able champion of good roads so I will write you a kind of personal letter We had Farmers Club and good roads meeting in town Monday evening was well attended and enthusiastic in spite of the rain They have a proposition to meet Adair county at the line wherever you may elect with a pike One route is to take the ridge as soon as we cross the bridge which has at last been crossed with wagons by Eb enezer Haskinsville and Camp Knox direct to Columbia the other is by the way of Clover Lick or Dry Branch to Gresham Milltown and Gradyville We think the direct route is the one and these other points tap it with these roads Will have another meeting Jan 28th 10 a m at the Court House at which time they hope to have the right of way secured and pledges given as to what each route will do to secure the road so I hope you will give this notice to the public A delagation from your county is desirable J L Wilson is Secretary Greensburg Ky We want pledges to build miles half miles and quarters and so many days work with concerted action and a liberal appro priation by the Fiscal courts it ought to be completed in six months Some es timates here are made as low as 500 per mile material is all so handy Very Respt J A MITCHELL P S Could ypu mange for a meet J l r ing next month at Columbia Specta tor please copy The above is self explanatory and needs but little comment from us The progressive citizens of Greensburg and Green county have taken the in itiative step and it is now up to the people of this section They propose to meet us at the county line and have already started their work of investiga tion If the people of Columbia and those along the route fail to grasp this opportunity it will be a mistake of im mense magnitude With mud and wa ter almost impassible every Winter be tween the two towns and the pike from Columbia to Campbellsville overtaxed it is time the supreme time for our people to accept such a proposition that will be tendered within a few days by the people of Green county A pike between the two would result in much good to both increase values along the line and put new life and energy into the people We trust that a meeting of our citizens will be called at once and formulate some definite plan of ac tion Several have already spoken their sentiments in this section and everyone enthusiastic for the road Wake up dear people wake up This is our opportunityl S NOTES Malcom Taylor SchoolIflattering prospects with an ance of nearly three hundred and still on

BIRDS SCHOOL Your correspondent closed his school at the Bird district Friday Jan 4 1907 He takes this method of thanking both patrons and pupils for the kindness shown him during his long stay with them this being his third term at that place He certainly appreciated the compliment paid him through the col umns of the News by Miss Helena Hundley and desires to say in the be half of Miss Hundley that during the seventeen months which she was his pupil she was absent only fourteen days always tried to know her lessons and was never known to be disobedient to school discipline He does not mean to boast but believes that it would be hard to find another school in the rural dis tricts of Kentucky where for twelve consecutive months the deportment would average 100 per cent without corporal inducements on the part of the teacher where the teacher had only to make his desires known to be readily obeyed by his pupils R L CAMPBELL If the present rainy weather contin e County Surveyor can

News is for home first neighbors second and good will for all the rest We have endeavored to make it a factor in the advancement of Columbia Adair county and Southern Kentucky in general True to our convictions of justice and with a love for home and home institutions we cannot see any reason why the News should ber come the agent for the removal of our people to the land beyond the Missippi As an act of com esy we have published many let ters from friends in the West nearly all of them holding up the glittering posibilities of that fer til region Not a single commu nication has been

look at the good that surrounds youTurnadeaf ear tithe bright pictures of Western adventures The ruling of the Inter Stat Commerce Commission prevent rail road companies from issuing transportation to newspaper mei in payment for advertising un less such transportation is used wholely in the state in which it is issued In justice to the principle involved and in justice to business of railroads and news paper people it seems to us that oneloneto put all inter state passengers on the same footing yet it pre vents one class of people from selling its valuable service for valuable pay as may best suit both parties to the transaction In fact and in truth we have never believed teat Railroad Cor porations should be permitted tc lavish their favors on the press simply to keep good will and we have never believed that the press could be purchased by such methods 0 u r experience in matters of this kind teach us that those in charge of gicai railways are men of integrity full of business and wide awake to the importance of advertising and when they put up transportation expect only legitimate ad vertising Then again we have found that the average newspaper man intends only to give full value and no more for what he receives The ruling of the commission simply forces cash f considerations but fails to state which shall put up in advance the transportation companies or the publishers It appears to us that this was purely an oversight The right to exchange services or commodities is a con stitutional one and we do not believe that the commission will be permitted to prevent the making of legitimate contracts nor dic tate the manner of pay We can ipt see whereJipr how the jnpbr be en tin they7 t r Uc Fh 11 BOOTS SHOES Heavy boots and shoes for every day wear also the nicest

Greensburg to Columbia is a step in the right direction No doubt but that such a road would fill a long felt want and prove a good thing financially Again if Columbia ever wants a railroad she must not look to such propo sitions as has lately been agita ted but must get down to a straight business proposition with the L N road and get that road to see the importance of ex tending the Greensburg branch through Columbia Burkesville and to some Southern point thus forming a straight road shorten ing other routes and securing the service of this vast territory now without a road 411 Mothers who
