to give me space in your valuable paper I shall write a few words that might be of some interest to the Adair county teachers about the Western Ky State Normal College I am glad to say in the outset that Adair has her quota here there being six regular appoint ees the number to which it is entitled and some students that src not appoint ees The Western State Normal open ed Tuesday Jan 22nd with about 400 students and now there are about 700 students and more to come yet as a great many of the appointees have not yet closed their schools Pres Cherry thinks that the attendance may reach nearly 1000 The people of Kentucky should be proud of the Western Ky State Nor mal with its wide awake President and strong faculty it is going to do a great deal of good for the State andevery teacher in the State should take ad vattage of the splendidopportunities that it offers No teacher that believes in progress and improvement will stay at home and miss such opportunities and advantages as is offered by the Western Ky State Normal I wish that I could in some way or other in duce some more of the Adair NorImalbeneiiteci md could look back and say that the time was well spent and that I dont regret it In conclusinon let me say that should you decide to attend the State Normal you will find superior advantages hero in the way f Loalding that you could not po find elsewhere The opportunity

PAPER SENT ON APPLICATION JOHN A HOBSON Greensburg Ky TAXES AS AN l VESTMENT l othing Else Brings So Large Re turns for Money Invested I King Georges tax on tea is admitted to have been unjust and no doubt thec Colonists had ground for the most vig orous remonstrance they could make if not for the acts of the tea party of Boston harbor but the incident hast worked harm to tfee American people in that it has festered the notion of its toeing a virtue to oppose taxes The Colonists opposed taxes that were lev ied on them without their consent They held very properly that taxation without representation is unjust Right minded people of Our times including women who are property holdery are still of this opinion but the prevalent sentiment against taxes per se isun Teasonable short sighted and very harmful Look at the matter Re consider it fairly There is no other money a man pays out for which he gets so large a return and this is true after all due deductions are made for the misuse of public mon ey Take your school tax for example How far would the amount of school tax paid by the average citizen go to wards employing a teacher to devote three or four months in the year to the education of his children Or your roadJ tax How far would the amount ofI Toad tax the average citizen pays ex tend to construct and maintain the roads he travels But let one ask him self what he gets in return for his State County and City taxes To se f cure one in the peaceful possession of his property and in the pursuit of his business he needs the services of a learned and upright Circuit Judge together with all the officers and equip ment necessary for the holding of his Court he needs the services of a whole college of learned and upright Judges who may be ready at any time to re view and correct the decisions of the local guardian of his legal rights he needs the services of a general Magis trate whose duty it is to police the whole State with the assistance of co laborers in every neighborhood in the Commonwealth and before he can have all of these he must have a sher beIsaid of County and City taxes Money paid as taxes becomes the citizens best investment

OF ADAIR DEAD Mr Thomas H Johnston died at his home at Coldwater Miss January 29th 1907 The deceased was about 75 years old and a son of the late John W Johnston of Adair county a broth er of Mi Ed Johnston of Milltown Ky and half brother of S D Johnston of Mariana Ark R L Johnston of LittleRock Ark and Mrs A I Hurt of this city Some unknown friend has taken the liberty to remove from the News office a small iron bank containing small change and also a number of postage stamps We have heard several business men complain of petty thievery and think it about time to put a stop to such business Let the offend ing party be punished regardless of who he may be The Commercial Club is atwork they will be heard from soon IMPROVEMENT OF TilE CUMBERLAND Locks and Dams To Be Construct edA Great Move For This Section The improvement of the upper Cum berland which is now in progress and for which an additional appropriation has just been approved by the National Congress is of far more importance to the people of Adair county we think than has been apprehended by the ma jority of our readers For this reason we are giving space this week to mat that will somewhat enlighten them Iterthe subject is known to many that a Lock is in process of construction that will af ford slack water from Burnsides to a point some fifteen miles above Rowena The shoal at Rowena is the next point Ion the river where a Lock is called for Engineersrwho surveyed the river for the Govern ment But it is currently reported that the next below the one being construct ed is to be omitted and that the next below Rowena is to be constructed with the funds appropriated by the present Congress This means that workwill be begun shortly on a Lock somewhere not far from the town of Crfielsboro Ofcourse another will be placed not far from Burksville and so on down the stream When these shall have beingisee fit to launch a boat upon the river we shall have the cheapes possible means of getting to market and should we secure a swifter way of reaching the market this will always operate as a wholesome check on unreasonable freight rates which is a matter of the first importance Now it goes without saying that the Southern Railway and the JL N Railway are not operating their lines in the spirit of charity organizations nor is either of them ready to turn over to the other the immense business of this district without an effort to retain a fair share of it Nor yet would they be willing to see the tonnage of Adair Russell Clinton and Cumberland float off down the river to Nashville without making an effort to catch at least a part of it for Louisville and Cincinnati So it does not require much sagacity to perceive that to test the love of our rival suitors Louis and Cincy we should set our cap for Nashville FOR SALE My store house and stock of goods and dwelling about 2 acres lapd a fine stock and tobacco barn on the premises in the town of Gradyville Adair county Ky I

PORTLAND CEMENT TJ Has Become a Great Favorite With Engineers and Architects in Construction Work The importance of Portland Cement as a building material and the rapidity with which its manufacture has come to the front in recent years are mat ters of which our readers probably know very little Yet we have cause to be greatly interested in the subject Timber the building material on which we have hitherto depended is becoming scarcer every day Iron and steel which also are limited in amount and expensive to transport are in the hands of monopolists The time in not far distant when the demand for Ce ment great as it is even now will be very much greater We start the ques tion In what way will that demand af fect us The purpose of this article is to answer this question- In 1890 the total output of Portland Cement in the United States was 67 100 short tons Since then the out put has gradually increased year by year till in 1906 it reached the enormous amount of 8400000 tons Churches Government buildings Manufacturing plants bridges abuttments viaducts sewers pavements dams retaining walls and many other erections are now being constructed of this material and so satisfactory has it proved it has become a favorite with engineers and architects throughout the whole country The reasons are it is com paratively cheap and it is practically verlasting Up to the present time the State of ensylvania has had almost a monopoly- f this industry for the reason that oints where the materials required forts manufacture can Be found under rst class conditions in every particular lire very few and Pensylvania has had almost a monopoly of these favoring conditions A particular variety of limestone a particular variety of clay and transportation facilities are the required conditions Given a first class road to the Cum berland river and all the required con ditions are met in Adair county All the citizens of Adair have to do is to think and As a man thinketh so is he The Congress of the United States has granted an appropriation of over a half million dollars for the im provement of the upper Cumberland This means cheap transportation to market for cement lime bricks tiling building stone and lumber And to what markets Those of all the towns and cities along the rivers to the gulf of Mexico to the Isthmus of Panama where enormous quantities of these materials will be needed for the next ten to fifteen years and to the mar kets of the world Shake that man from the country who is not a member of the Columbia Commercial Club and tell him to wake up Things are going to happen that he is interested in and he will thank you Give him a copy of the News and invite his cooperation in an effort to better our commercial facilities The clay manufactured into cement tiling pottery and bricks in the State of Indiana annually realizes to that State not less than three times as much money as the entire lumber bus iness in Kentucky brings into our State TWO YEARS fOR BURTON The Jury Out Only About Three Hours and Returns Vef- V diet As Above After being in their room three hours the jury in the case of the Common wealth vs Elijah M Burton for the killing of James Dooley returned a verdict of manslaughter fixing the de fendants punishment at two years in State penitentiary- It will be remembered that on Sun day August 19th of last year Dooley was shot and almost instantly killed by Burton at the formers home near Ves ter The circumstances which led up to the shooting were about as follows The principals had been at outs for several years and never lost an opportunity to cast epithets at each other rl On Saturday the trouble was renewed both sides using many vile names until Dooley fired at Burton hitting two of Jim Powells sons It is claimed that Burton fir breake ing window lights but injuring none of the occupapts The trouble quieted down at that time but early Sunday morning M Dooley was entering his r7 r I i yard gate Burton fired inflicting the death wound Both sides tell a differ ent story at this point The claims that Burton opened his stor door as Jim was entering his gate and the former noticed that Dooley was raising his gun to fire The prosecu tion though Miss Grace Dooley the only eye witness says that the deceased was shutting his gate when BurI ton appeared in his store door firing the fatal shot The trial was begun on January 23rd and occupied eight days Probably no trial within the past several years has been witnessed by a larger audience or with greater interestthe court room being filled at every session Both sides were represented by able counsel and the case was hotly contest ed at every point The defense was represented by Judge W W Jones James Garnett and Rollin Hurt and the prosecution by Commonwealth At torney Huddleston County Attorney Smythe Winfrey Winfrey and W L Malone of the CampbeUsville bar THOROUGHBREDS BEING PLACED Adair County Should Take Steps to Secure One of These Fine Individuals Several weeks since we published an article from the American Breeders Protective Association which has es tablished Bureau to place thorough bred stallions in various sections of the State to promote the quality of hors fleshIt will be remembered that the arti cle above referred to gave out tha these fine stallions would be placed i the hands of good farmers who woul stand them at nominal fees that th Representatives of each county or dis trict would be asked to help select a suitable and conveniently located citi zen to take charge of the animal Since the first announcement the work of placing the thoroughbreds has begun and our sister county Clinton has secured The Virginian a fine in dividual which is in the hands of Thom as Brents Ida Ky We see no reason why Adair county should not be furnish ed one of these stallions and feel con fident that if our horsemen will take up the matter we shall soon see a famou- Bluegrass thoroughbred within our borders Who will take the initiative to secure one of these horses A COMPLIMENT The following excerpt from a letter to C S Harris from the Louisville Commercial Club by H E Hughes Secretary is selfexplanatory- We were very much gratified t note the organization of a Commercial Club at Columbia and to see the great start it has received We wish you every success and if we can assist you at anytime do not hesitate to command us Give your mite to the Adair county fund for the Kentucky Exhibit at the Jamestown Exposition If you havent enough patriotism and love for the old State to open your pocketbook to this worthy cause get behind the barn and give yourself a good kicking then t move out of the state It has been our pleasure to have quite amount of business relating to gathering news from the records pf the Adair Circuit Clerk and we find that Deputy Hancock is as obliging and painstaking as it is possible for an official to be The work in the Circuit Clerks office is always up to the notch Mr James A Dulworth a prominent citizen of Green county whose home is near Canp Knox is hustling for the pike to come his way Mr Dulworth informs us that he secured 5000 and the right of way through the farms in his neighborhood Green county should feel honored to have such a progressive Dulworthwwithin her borders TO TOBACCO SHIPPERS We wish to stateto our friends throughout the

rPICKEI TOBACCO WAREHOUSE Louisville Ky r ADVOCATES PIKE TORIVERe A Pellyton Man Thinks it a Much Better Proposition then Any One Yet Mentioned I notice quite an amount of comment mostly favorable on the proposed pike to Greensburg Of course this would be a good thing but in my judgment the proper road to build is from Columbia to the river Freight by water is much cheaper and even should drayage from the county seat be in creased sufficient to equalize the rates we would be much better off with two outletsThen again we would stand a much better opportunity of securing a rail road So long as the L N which we have been feeding for over a quar ter of a century can get the traffic of this country without expending capital in the construction of a road we may rest assured they will remain idle But let the frieght business of this section reach the the Southern via the river and it will not be long until the first mem tioned system will get busy Construct good roads all over the county and a pike to Greensburg but by all means lets bave the pike to the Cumberland J A HARDIN Pellyton Ky SPEAKS OUR SENTIMENTS enezens are the enterprising and liberal men who believe in living and letting others live dontnsqueeze lastemore Such squeezing is what causes hard times and stops the circulation of the American Eagle If it were not for our broadgauged and enterprising men it would be impossible to build up a prosperous cityHarrodsburg Herald A HINT TO THE WISE Our Correspondents ever alert and always punctual strictly impartial and goodstaste in what they report deserve our gratitude as well as the thanks of their neighbors and our readers generally They know that this sentiment is sin cere Now to make their efforts yet more useful we ventuge to draw their attention to a weakness reportersa weakness especially noticeable in re porters on the great dailiesagainst which we wish our representatives to be on guard We refer to the prevail ofothe papers with endless trivialities and insigniffcant details in connection with the mention of notable or worthy per sonsIf there is a general demand for such matter it only argues that there is a prevailing morbid taste that requires a daily mention of just how the several members of the Thaw family for in stance came into the Court room and took their seats that demands a tel egraphic report of every notable crim inals daily bill of fare that gives hours to the reading of the prattle of cranks and crook who if met face to face would not be esteemed worthy of a passing nod and that distributes in the homes of millions of decent people the filth of the bangnio the profanity of the barroom and he offscouring of the Police Court We are not afflicted with anything of this sort but we have noticed a tendency to mention trivial ities in detail Hence we make a suggestion In stead of reporting that Mr G Inmud one of our best citizens was unable to get to Columbia last weekwait till this same good old citizen mends his ways and then say Mr G Inmud having rallied his neighbors to his assistance and having repaired the im passible places in the road near his farm was able to take his wife with him in a buggy to Columbia last week See That is well enough but this is more deserving of notice and the good man is all the more welcome in Colum bia and his name is the more cheerful ly printed in the News because he has done a helpful deed and has brought his wife along to share in the benefits of it In brief and in fine let us hear the good and useful things our coun try men are doing and we are sure that no correspondent need ever lack for matter or be in the least dull provided he has eyes to see wit worthy and helpful things his neighbors are doing i N1 z FRED W HARDWICK Pres J H COCKE V Pres R

of our Government indicates that the situation may become more threatening before the incident is closed The order for the expenditure of 1000009 on the Oregon now in Pacific waters and for 75000 shells for use on warships is sig nificant especially when consid ered in connection with the appropriation of a large sum last week for the fortification of Hawaiian ports The most informing public ut terance we have seen lately is that of Senator Perkins of Cali fornia in an address before the National Society at Washington His view in brief is that we have laid the foundation for supremacy in the Pacific and that the Japanese have as pirations and purposes 2s to their expansion and domination of that quarter of the globe and that sooner or later whatever may be come the occasion of it a conflict with this people is almost inevi Perkins further points out that real expatriation is a condition practically impossible to the Jananse mind Where ever Japanese may be however far from the throne of the Mica do they will remain a consolidat ed unity and will support the aspirations of their race The Senator does not go so far as this but we may add that their char acteristics of conceit and deceit will become more and more man ifest to the world shortly being kept in restraint hitherto by their desire to be recognized as one of the highly civilized nations of the earth and as such

section is the same as a sale at the place of delivery It is stated that the work of in the levees along the lower Mississiippi has occa stoned some of the damage done by the flood There is another

reflects the popular sentiment in the State rather than the wishes of the political bosses in his own party Such is so novel in these times as to attract very general attention James J Hill and Edward H Harriman have become each a Colossus of Roads but if we consider their methods and the results of their offorts including the esteem in which they are held by their countrymen a comparison can be made only by the differences which appear Hill has built railroads and a great western empire while enriching himself Harriman has manipulat ed stocks and bonds and has unitedmany hitherto independ

international lines and interests meet It was his littleness that betrayed hintithe deplorable blunder ne maae for a larger soul would not have that Davis was getting ah undue share of the credit for meeting the dreg emergency The illustration goes much fur her for as the direct result of his egoism and foily Admiral Davis is thanked and honored and Governor Sweetenham is reproved and despised by the nations concerned and throughout all the world Thus selfishness overreaches itself and this oc curs so often in human history as to show that it is not even good selfishness to be too selfish

he could see his way to go back to the knee breeches apron and bonnet of an Anglican bishop may not be at once apparent tc the average Wesleyan but nc doubt Mr Nuttall finds his sphere of usefulness all the larger for the tights he wears though his Lordship over the disestablished West Indian Episcopal churches does not entitle him to a seat in the upper House of the British Parliament All English notables do not feel toward Americans as Governor Sweetenham seems to feel In 1883 when the City of Kings ton was nearly destroyed by fire Sir Anthony Musgrave was Governor of Jamaica When the fire had raged for forty eight hours and all hope of saving the business portion of the City was gone Sir Anthony happening to meet an American well known to him said Mr Azbill you know the Americans you see the situation and know how to make known to your Country our needs Send such au appeal for assist ance as you may think proper A Charity Organization had been formed only a few days before the fire of which Lady Mus grave was Patroness and Mr Azbill was Secretary It happened in this way that an Amer ican became Secretary of the Re lief Committee that dealt with a Kingston calamity but a little less destructive than the one now afflicting that City Lady Mus grave was a daughter of Dudley Wield of New York and no individual has done more to win for Americans the love and esteem of the people of Jamaica than did this estimable lady C URREMTE TIEN1S IIn the notorious Harry K Thaw case as in a half dozen others throughout the country acquittal is sought on the ground of the unwritten lawand a plea of insanity That rich young scapegrace says he expects to go free after having been vindicated in open Court The chief reason for the general in terest in the trial is that the Court before which he is being J lt f s tried is itself on trial The broken relations betw the French Government and Vatican the strained relati between the Catholic bishops France and the several otl parties to the controversy ov the ownership and use of prc erties which were in the han of tie Church before disestal lishment and the sympathy c Catholics throughout the wor with their French brethren cor tinue to be the subject of tram lantic dispatches and of worldwide interest Meanwhile the claims aims and spirit of the French Government which appears to have the support of the French nation is becoming bet ter understood everywhere The Presidents move to ap point a negro to be Sur veyor of Customs at Cincinnatti Senator Forakers home is one of shrewd diplomacy to say the very least If Forakers attitude to the President in the Brownsville affair has the support of his con stituents no opposition is to be expected from him nor from them It is said that Booker T Washington has been consulted and the fair inference is that if a negro is appointed the appoint ment will be pleasing to all American citizens of African descent So Senator Foraker the people of the Buckeye State the negroes and our Teddy will all be dee lightedThe indications are that the I relations between America and Japan have reached a most critical state A deputation from California is now in Washington and has been in conference with the President and members of his Cabinet The deputation has telegraphed to the President of the San Francisco Board of Education to come to Washington for further conference Secretary Taft has asked for and has been granted an appropria tihn for the fortification of Pearl Harbor and the Bay of Honolulu the immediate action of the Con v gress being
