The turnpike proposition has been discussed for several months in South ern Kentucky Every town and county has been indulging in hopes and enjoy ing the beautiful pictures of imaginary pikes Various propositions have been submitted various roads suggested but up to date no action that leads to realization of such blessings has been taken in this county Our Commercial Club is now working on plans which will be submitted to the Fiscal Court at its April meeting and it is to be hoped that every mem ber of the Court will realize the im mense worth of good substantialroads and the importance of their immediate construction The needs of the county cannot be secured in a short period of time Good roads cannot bo built allover the county in one or two years but a system can be established that will make a wonderful difference inside I of a few years Close fisted economy if longer indulged will prove a costly mistake So long as selfish and per sonal interests override public goodand public advancement so long we will all grope along in the mire and mud The Fiscal Court ought to levy the highest tax within the limits of law anduse the same in making pikes A plan will be worked out by the Commercial Club which will be submitted to the Court The people are willing to be taxed for roads and bridges and we trust that the Court will be willing to impose the tax and judiciously spend it

importance of a curfew law in this town Boys are boys some very rude and some very muck so while but few if any are as consider ate as the average parent may believe It is hard to tell what course is best to pursue in a case like the one of last week but our judgment is that the Court House is not the best place to settle such troubles or inflict adequate punishment fer misdemeanor It ought to be done at home and in accordance with the direction given by Solomon AFTERNOON RECEPTION Mrs Bettie Butler entertained quito a number of her friends at an after enItertainmentments were served Covers

perity and undeveloped wealth dis posed of his Kentucky interests and lo cated in Indian Territory There he purchased a farm and cultivated it to find that its powers of production were about half as prolific as the soil of Ken tucky and that the markets are much inferior In fact the same grade of corn that is now selling in Kentucky at 60 cents per bushel is a drag on the In dian Territory market at half that amount 30 cents So this now wiser Kentuckian contends that one acre of good land in this section is worth four in the West and he has the figures on it and figures wont lieHarrodsburg

investigations and enforcing theling quarantine law when necessary spreadIthem out Several sections of Cum berland county were quarantined last Fall and it is believed that the infec tion was overcome in that county The penalty fixed by the laws of Tennessee for violating the quarantine law is a fine of not less than 50 nor more than X500 for each offense Lousville Times PECULIAR FREAK Mr W S Sallee one of our prosper ous farmers relates a peculiar freak froxi a Holstein cow It is this way Mr Sallee was milking the cow a few eyenings ago one he had milked for several years and during all that time she had never kicked hooked nor run but that record was smashed on this aeeasion All of a sudden she took a run out of the lot and into a small thicket nearby stopping suddenly and placing her head near the ground while the irate milkman was following with a stick to inflict punishment but to ledIAfter finding out the intent of the faithful old cow the rod was not used and she walked back into the lot where sire stood calmly for her milk to be drawn Evidently the cow intended and did notify her wner of the condi tion of the hog but too late to save its life MEMORY SOCIABLE The Ladies Aid Society of the Pres byterian church will give a memory Sociable at the home of Mrs W B Patterson Friday evening March 22nd 7 to 10 They will be a candy booth light refreshments will be

and 18 TO COLUMBI WHERE ARE THE FIXED RULES Relative To The Young Manhood of Today To Be Found Princi pIe The Object Editor News- I drop these few lines to your val uable paper with the hopes that the thoughts advanced will prove beneficial to some young man in that section of countryThe fixed rules upon the above subject which seem the most advisable to my mind in the makeup of a young mans character at this day and time is soberness honesty fair dealing integrity politness pleasant manners and address self respect and a regard for the opinions of men whose years are more mature than his and who have gray locks and a great deal more experience in the various walks than you have had What a contrast in young men those who expect to make their mark in the world and to have the respect of all who know them are always found in good company their manners are most agreeable to all with whom they come in contact They have the respect of much older men and their honesty and integrity builds for them a character in this life which will stand the stormy onslaughts of a whole army of fellows who would purposely injure their char acters for their own greed or gain Now on the other hand what can a young man expect in this life who does not try to make out of himself what his mother would desire him to beThe best friend a boy has on earth is his mother and if he breaks her heart by his wrong doing he ought to have a goodly portion of hell fire throughout the ages of eternity it matters not what kind of an infernal excuse he may try to concoct in his favor No young man is compelled to do a wrong deed and if he does it the cause is because he wants to There is no other axcuse A mothers love and a mothers interest in her son are two of the grand est and most noble inspirations that can come to any boy and any young man who will not prize them higher than any worldly pleasure is not wor thy of being called the son of a noble mother F McL ELLIOTT Thoroughbred Stallion Is In Hands Of J H Smith Fonthill Ky The Kentucky Breeding Bureau ship ped last week to J H Smith at Font Hill Russell County the thoroughbred stallion Elliott whose services will be donated to the people of this section The Bureau was organized several weeks ago in order to help improve the general class of horse stock of the state To that end it is purchasing thoroughbred stallions of such size conformation and temperament as produce excellent general M horses when bred to the cony mares of those section are sent So far as eerned the servi are donated r1 pie of the no mon lyfr he and Mr Hopper went to Lexington where they interviewed officers of the Breeding Bureau and secured the prom ise of early consideration at their hands The horse sent to Russell County Elliot is a sevenyearold chestnut horse by Racine from Aurelia II by Wildidle He is a splendid type of thoroughbred stallion and was a race horse of real class He was raced for five seasons by M J Daly and won a total of thir tyseven races was second twenty four time and third sixteen times His winnings amounted to over 25000 Among other stakes which stand to his credit are Lissak Handicap twice in both of which races he defeated the famous race horse Claude the Pleas ant Plate the Norfork Purse as well as a number of other notable races which he won from good horses Elliott was especially noted for his ability to go along distance a trait which should prove of genuine value to him as s sire giving to his get endurace courage and stamina He can be seen at Mr Smiths place at Font Hill by any who care to see him and it will be well worth a trip of some distance to look at so good a horse 19 2t In another column will be found the advertisement of Wm F Jeffries Sonsthe Hardware and Implement people of Columbia They

he should write something not true then the man himself would be able to con tradict it In approaching an under taking like this I very much feel my inability Would that thy pen 0 Mel vin were ours then would the life and scenes and escapades of this man go down the ages clothed in finer and more classic language than I am able to commandMelvin White was born about fifty years ago at a very early period of his life There was nothing remarkable about his birth except a precocious ness that began to manifest itself in the very begining I have been told by persons who were present that be fore he was an hour old without any previous training he could cry equal to a veteranI have also been told that he cut all of his teeth without the help of surgeon I have assurances that this is true for being his fathers fam ily physician I was never called on to assist in these unpleasant exercises He cut his wisdom teeth before he was ten years old showing that he was as wise at ten as other boys at twenty years old In his very young days he was a fre quenter at his neighbor George Bur pos blacksmith shop When only eighteen months old he went into the shop and picked up a piece of redhot iron and dropped it without having to be told Burpo laughed at him for dropping the iron so quickly and right then and there young as he was he registered a blood red oath that he would get even with him if it took him ten years He bided his time He learned to read when only a few years old and was a great lover of history He read of Washington the hatchet and the cherry tree he read of Abe Lincolns railsplitting possibilities he read of Girfields driving the mule on the canal and he read of Davie Crock etts Indian killing proclivities and he felt like imitatating all these great men except Abe Lincolns railsplit ting experience h drat that He came to th tbors were ot and the red hot iron Our hero was now about eight years old and he had several confederates by the name of Burbridge The boys were playing one evening after Burpo had left the shop and found and killed a very large and venomous snake In snake time Bur po always went barefooted with his breeches rolled up The floor of his shop was native dirt and the roof of clap boards was very low Under Melvms directions the snake was brought and stretched at full length just inside the door sill I dont know whetherI had been inform ed or not of the contemplated funat any rate I was passing at the time Gco came up singing the best that a stutter ing man could sing Show Pity Lord O Lord Forgive Having no shutter the shop did not have to be opened The authors of the mischief had secreted themselves behind logs and stumps and left only me to witness the wild scenes perIonto the snake Just as he felt the cold his eye caught sight of the poisonous reptile He screamed a scream that would have done justice to a moun tain catamount and jumped a jump that tangled his head in the boards of the roof he let loose a volley of oaths and imprecations the most awful that I have ever heard from a really good thatIveil who had done it and was determined to turn ebery one of them to the jury he was He then described the snake to me I sympathized with him and YesIbut it was a berry berry dangerous snake Melvin was avenged To Be Continued REV COOKS SUBJECTS At the Baptist church Pastor J C Cook will deliver a

INSTITUTE Mr H B Garnett Writes Inter ingly Of Recent Meeting at Shelbyville Mr Editor With your permission I will try and give your readers a few items from the State Institute held at Shelbyville Ky Feb 2678 As this was my first trip to the blue grass country I must say that while I saw some nice country that I was some what disappointed Perhaps I was ex pecting too much owing to having heard it praised so high After seeing some of it and hearing it priced I see no reason why any Adair county farmer should want to sell land at 10 to 30 per acre that with the same cultivation and fer tilizing will produce all most as well as theirs that will cost from 50 to 150 per acre I reached Shelbyville about 8 oclock on the night of Feb 26th so I missed the first days exercises The first thing on the program for the second day was the election of members State Board of Agriculture from first third appellate districts Guthrie andIII Wilson of Bardstown the present cumbent was selected from the third district I have forgotten the name of the gentleman elected from the and main Doder D CThis speaker said that to make good roads it was necessary to have a ten ton steel roller that would cost about eRSnn nr1q 1n t rn krrnchn TTith- this machinery it would cost from 3500 up per mile while no doubt this would make a fine road the cost would be too great for the poor counties of the State For dirt roads he said there was noth ing better than the drag made of 2 logs fastened together hitched so splItI run at a little angle it is said that this simple drag that 2 or three men living along the road can keep 3 or 4 miles of roaa in good condition through the entire year with possibly a little while in the winter when we have rain and freezing weather and not put in more than six days each What have been perhaps of as much wouldI ance to this section of the any thing that was on the program was the use and abuse of commercial fertilizers by Prof M A Scovell But he had only talked a few moments when they commenced firing questions at him and kept it up so long that he just put in his time answering questions Farm sanitation was discussed by Dr A T McCormack The Dr said that typhoid fever and consumption could be thePtime was coming when it would be a disgrace not to the person who had the t fromYPwhom he contracted it Swine breed ing and feeding was discussed by S E Morton of Camden Ohio It was largely a technical and scientific discussion based on actual experiment The dis cussion of alfalfa by J E Wing of Ohio and Prof M A Scovell of Ken tucky brought out many interesting points about this new grass but they differ about the time to sow Wing claimed he had got the best results from fall seeding while several thought our falls were generally too dry That he had the best stand from seed sown March 26 A movement for clean milk illustrat ed with stereopticon views by Prof C B Lane Chief Dairy Division U S Department of Agriculture What Immigration means to the Farmer by E J Watson State Commission of Immigration Columbia S C and other subjects were discussed in such a way that one had to hear all to understand the subject To pick out extracts would not give a correct ilea of what was in tended or said The delegates from most of the coun ties were representitive men and prac tical farmers with members of the Legislature and the Senate and citi zens of Louisville and other points and it was wonderful at the interest taken in every discussion as they would sit and listen sometimes until long after the noon hour Shelbyville entertained the Institute royally and the left feeling that they have delegatesI pleasant and profitable H meetingI Last Tuesday Mr Titus Mercer was in town and after spending several hours he proceeded to place

The change of venue in the Hargis case is not the cause of so much criticism of special Judge Carnes but the manner in which it was made and the point to which it is to be hauled The reasons advanced in support of Sandy Hook are so weak as to discredit the motives of the Judge in the minds of many So far as we are able to see the re moval of the Hargis case and many others connected should have been made and carried to a county free as possible from the influences tending to defeat the ends cf justice It is claimed that Elliott county is not such a place but whether it is or not the county is too remote from railroads and is an imposition on the witnesses We do not know Judge Games we cannot maas matIterwhich there is no excuse apparent to a large majority of our people If he desired to favor 1 the accused he alone is respon i41 sible if he sought to place the trial where justice would be meted out lit eridently believes in remoteness At any rate there are those who attach polit ical significance but Democrats and the Democratic party ofi this State do not stand forJudge Carnes nor for the acquittal of the men accused of crime The men who slew Wm Goebel and the ones who murdered Cockrell and Marcum stand on the same footing In both cases stern justice should be administered Up to this good day the party nor the party press has ever at tempted to shield any man or set of men
