Poatoffice as second ClaM mail matter r Q ItWED MARCH H 1907 i There is not a doubt that the l mail order houses in the large t cities seek the country trade and that their business is steadily 1 and rapidly increasing They have a fine system of getting business and that system is through the newspapers that reach the people If a company should organize with a million dollar capital and spend every nonePmoney is as useful to sell goods as it is to buy themIn this day and time Judicious advertising pays and the firms that fail to advertise cart not hope to v succeld with those that do If the Icoun try merchants want to get business if they want the trader place their business before those whose patronage they expect Year by year the large advertisers in the cities are taking the cash from the country to the disadvantage of our merchants andyet they set and grumble and refuse to give attractive bar gains or even to advertise a dis count on goods that are actually giving While we have fought against sending money out of our country for goods and while we have preached the doctrine that it is safer and better for our people to patronize local mer chants yet we cannot change the condition The only solution is for local merchants to meet the situation by giving bargains and by judicious advertising of the same By looking over the advertisements in The News it would show our nearest merchant in Greensburg In the face of such a course can any business man in Columbia or Adair coun ty figure to hold the trade of the county The News does not pro pose to beg for an advertisement busIinesstheir goods and encourage the people to buy beyond our borders it is all right with us So far as this paper is concerned it is not in position to solicit an increase in the

Daily Something Doing Every Minute Many persons are now counting the days which must elapse bafore the opening of the Greater Louisville Exposition March 18 The manufacturers and other business men of Louisville have been steadily engaged on the big enterprise since November 21 last and they now see the fruition of then hopes in the exhibits which are being niy installed in the big Exposition Building The work of construction which on paper made a most excellent impression is in its final completion it is said far more beautiful than anything the designers had expected The con sfcraction of exhibit booths cost the J3posilion Company a great sum of money but the result is said to more than justify the expenditure The rates to Louisville which go Into effect on Monday March 18 on all railroads will be one fare for the round trip With Monday March 18 aa the first selling date the rates ob tain on Thursday 21 Saturday 23 Monday 25 Thursday 28 and Satur dad 30 all good returning April 1 These rates have not been beaten by any rate ever announced for any ex position in the history of the country and it is said that the interest offered by the Greater Louisville Exposition justifies the rate to the last degree Not alone do the railroads offer these excellent inducements but all steamboat lines making Louisville have offered similar inducements The Louisville Sc Evansville Packet pany and the Los Line offer a ComI one and onethird Taie for the trip including call and berth while the Louisville Cincinnati Packet Company offer one fare for the round- trip exclusive of meals and berth Thus all Kentuckians may travel cheaply and comfortably to Louisville daring the exposition period with suf ficient stopover privilege to allow them to enjoy the xpcsition in every detail and transact such business as they may have in Kentuckys metropo lis before the expiration of their ticketsSuch zeal is being shown by the PX hibitors in the natter of getting in stalled before tIll evening of March in that the Bosrrl o 1 Directors of the Greater Louisville Exposition have announced that tfcoy are now in posi lion to accurately gauge the appear ance of the great hall when President Roosevelt touches the button and the wheels of the exposition are finally set in motion Decorated with rainbow tints natural and artificial jgowars the exposition hall is intruthI a dream of beauty Even teeming with LUST activities lira resounding with the blows of many hammers and tIe grating of saws it is at present it is said by all vlio rv that the expo sition far surpasses any previous ef forts made by Louisville to take her important place uong the great cities of the nation Kentucky and nIl Kentuckians may e GIUSEPPE CREATORS The Greatest Living Bandmaster

tremendous personality rich in everything which goes to make up a reall great musician A Neapolitan by but an American by bhtbI has played before the crowned of Europe as well as bafore those uncrowned kings the musical critics of tlie New York press Nowhere has lie failed to receive the highest praise and he has repeatedly declared that the musical taste of the people of Ken tucky is as an average the most ac curate in recognizing true musica worth that he has ever seen Tha overIof the United States is attested by the following paragraph from the London Daily Tribune The band certainly deserves tin high praise it has received in America The musical qualities of the tone and style are great and although Signor Creatore walks about the platform and conducts by means of gestures whit might be called sensational there is no trickery about his interpretation of the music The instruments have that clear rather shrill tone which the Italians prefer The cornet the prin cipal clarinet the trombone for in stance are all remarkable as virtuosi The ensemble is as fine as possible and the clean phrasing especially in forte passages goes beyond anything wt have heard from other bands From every point of view this is a finer barn than that of Sousa and there is much in Its work which should attract mu sicians as well as the uncritical When it is considered that the worn of this great music master may be observed without extra charge and the admission price is only tWQntyfive cents the fact will ba readily recog- nIzed that Louisville is putting forth every effort possible to give immense value for the money which will be received at the exposition gate For those who prefer music and laughter in the evening and outdoor entertainments during the morning and afternoon there is the excellent choice of visiting Louisvilles outdoor attractions in the morning and seeing her excellent baseball team inaction in the afternoon From March 25 to 29 inclusive there will be games of baseball between the Louisville team and some of the strongest teams in the National and American Leagues Low railroad rates Greater Louis ville Exposition Creatore baseball what more could be needed to induce one to take a pleasant little trip to the metropolis of tire State there to re ceive the welcome of her people under these most gratifying conditions The business men of Louisville stand with outstretched hands awaiting the vis itor from elsewhere and the Exposition Building will be the meeting place for many an old friend to meet other friends and for kindred spirits to corns together for the first time In fact there is no limit to the joy and profit which will be derived by a few days visit to Louisville during the period of the Greater Louisville Exposition March IS to 30- EXPOSITION NEWS NOTES Other Matters of Interest Lightly Touched in Passing The hotelkeepers in Louisville have announced to the state in particular and to the South in general that there vill be no advance in charges during he exposition period The lorbearanca of these public entertainers has been noticeable in the past and it will likely edound greatly to their profit in the ear future The Government exhibits which win he shown in the exposition are now being packed in Washington and everything is being made ready to fur jab the Greater Louisville Exposition with everything it has asked for The great Creatore has recently filed naturalization papers in Philadelphia hereby showing his feeling for this great country Sig Creatore has fre- Quently attested his

a dye house a feature not connected with many factories of this sec tionWe have an excellent and well equipped school building in which we maintain a good school Mill towns are at a disadvantage in this respect Much of the- population is composed of people who failed on farm and came here to work children in mill The management is willing for them to go to school but many parents in all mills

to speak at a festival given by K of P I am not a Knight but I love oysters so I told them much of something I knew nothing about I have a peculiar tact in speaking when I know nothing and am eager and willing to rush in where angels dare not tread Tonight the Daughters of Rebecca also Lo the poor Indian eat oysters and want me to speak I cant quite remember Pocahontas but she is my patron saint among Indian maidens needato say May his tribe increase was no doubt a leader of men the genius of Jamestown colony and withal a talented and versatile liar In this accomplishment he has had much emulation in VirginiaN orth Carolina and Kentucky but we cherish his memory as that ofa record breaker in his day and generation and as one who could still command respect if living I learned from Peter Parley of blessed memory that Pocahontas always bobbed up serenely when Smiths life was jeopardized and that he would have repaid her love by marriage but he had a wife Later Col Watterson disillusioned me in the columns of the Courier Journal I thought the able but erratic Colonel was a ruthless iconoclast Later I learned that all that dramatic scene of the beautiful Indian princess jumping under the club of Powhattan was evolved from fertile imagination of Capt John Smith I also learned that he never was married So I can say what I please and not stir up his descendants Last night we celebrated Wash ingtons birthday He has been dead long enough for fact to be well established and to be pret ty thoroughly respected by this time Ion c e thought every body loved him while he lived but since I learned of Conway Cabal that strove to retire Washington from head of army and put Gates in his place and that he was indicted for not work ing road I find he was human and had troubles of his own Oldwomen used to tell me about that prying old quaker catching Washington on his knees till I thought he spent his time there when not fighting battles Later learned that when he cussed out Gen Charles Lee at Mon mouth his language reminded us of the vigorous and expressive English so interlarded into ver nacular of Col Jno Sullivan Washington was truly great and his fame was
