the state ment that peaches and pears were kill ed but it now develops that we were incorrect There is a light bloom on some trees plenty on others and on many none This spotted condition is due to variety and position of the trees Nearly all the early varieties are show ing up without bloom and many late kinds are nearly bare especially where the trees had but little protection from the north winds The best we can hope for is a light crop FAMINE STRICKEN SUFFERERS OF CHINA At the Columbia Ministerial Asscia tion Tuesday March 19th inst by a unanimous vote it was resolved to hold a union

market towns The peo ple actually needing help now number IITheeverything available is being sold for foodFarm animals are being sold at great sacrifice The extremity of the dis tress is seen in fact that children are actually being offered and sold In some instances they are peddled along the streets It will require about 4 00 to keep alive one person until the harvest isI ripeBrethren and citizens of Columbia we who have plenty and to spare shall we not at this time respond liberally to our needy Brother There are families in this city who are able to give 100 and never realize that

attended great many good entertain ments in Columbia but I do not believe there has ever been a more delightful- or interesting one held in the Southern portion of the State than the recital given by Misses Penland and Meek at Campbellsville on last night Every number was as near perfectas could be and the rendition of each and every part was something extraor dinary according to the views of the toItitled As a musician she has no equal in Southern Kentucky Her voice is a perfect melody with the soft and beau tiful tenures of music which bring out a harmony that is beyond comprehen herIficult points Miss Penland will come up to a higher standard as a teacher than most or them according to the way she acquitted herself last Saturday night at Campbellsville It is an un contradicted fact that when the Lind sayWilson school at Columbia selected Miss Penland as a music teacher they made the wisest choice in the history of that fast thriving institution of learningNow Miss Meek who had a prominent part in the entertainment is one of the best teachers of express ion that I have ever had the pleasure of listening to She seems at such perfect ease in the rendition of her part of the program that it is a heav enly inspiration to the admirers of ex pression in its most exalted and perfect manner The combination of music and elocution in a recital is one of the most sublime entertainments that ei ther a manor woman ever witnessed and if any occasion was ever more highly enjoyed than the one mentioned herein it has escaped the notice of the writer as well as a whole lot of other people in Columbia The whole affair was one that de serves much credit from the citizenship of Columbia and Adair county and the young ladies connected with the enter tainment are our best and most talent ed girls Miss Daut Marcum the Editor of the Spectator was in attendance and her presence upon the occasion seemed to have an inspiring effect upon the bal ance of the troupe Miss Marcum is the only young lady editor of a news paper in the State of Kentucky and the grand old Commonwealth should be proud of having one of its most beauti ful girls as a member of the Pencil Pushers in the State Miss Marcum is unquestionably efficient for the edit orship of any paper She is educated and her intellectual powers are equal to any young lady in Southern Kentucky FRED McLEAN Miss Nona Powell who has had a position as compositor on the News for a 3t year resigned her position a few days ago Miss Powell is one of Columbias best young ladies She is a good compositor and we regretted to lose her valuable help on the paper but as the family intend moving West within a short time she gave up her position to prepare for the move Her staj in this office was pleasant and her atten tion to her position was entirely satis factory in every particular A SAD DEATH ocIcurredthat of Glen Rounds the 16 year old son of Mr and Mrs L L Rounds on Monday afternoon at 430 Just merg ing into manhood with the innocence of boyish glee giving way to the real ization of a broader view of life he looked forward to mature years with fond hopes but almost without warning he was taken to his eternal home On last Saturday he was complaining slightly but was able to be out On Sunday he took his bed about the noon hour and at 430 Monday he passed away Double pneumonia doing its work within that siort time Funeral services were held at the residence on Tuesday at 1030 by Rev A R Kasey his pastor and the body laid to rest in the city cemetery The pall bearers were boys near his age who loved him and were loved by him and impressed those who witnessed that solemn procession of the uncertainty of life the swiftness of death and the tender affections of his associates Glen was a boy who impressed older ones as a model and his playmates as a companion whose living was worthy of imitation His death has produced ex treme grief with his parents brothers and sister who have the

got the most of his education He attended the public schools there until he was about six reImarkablecould write a very legible hand he took part in all the games common in his day he stood up m class and spelled twice every day but on account of the goodness of his heart would never turn the little boys down as a consequence he maintained his position at the foot of his class He said the little boys hated to be foot and as he didnot mind it he never did allow a little boy to be foot He reasoned in this way that if everybody in the class spelled every word some body would have to stand foot and the little boys could not spell every word why should they be punished by haying to stand at the bot tom he would not allow Nothing of a very itIcurred until one Hooker to teach Hooker was not the sameI Hooker that fit above the but the Hooker that fit at Tabor He was a very pious gentleman a Method ist preacher of the Northern persuasion of whom Ches Taylor once remarked that Hooker would be a fine preacher if he did not walk to much like a man buying furs At that session quite a number of min the people of Columbia know when boys attended the session that Hooker taughtLucian Hurt Jim Taylor Bascom Garnett Rollin Hurt Jo Nat Conover Allen Pile and Melvin White Young E Hurt owned the fine woodland laying contiguous to the school house and in that woodland were many fine pawpaws which the boys dearly loved The boys of Ky love pawpaws as llas tke boys of the pine tar state love kuckloberries Up to this time the teachers had never ob jected to the boys getting pawpaws Hooker would have beea no exception if the boys had returned im a reasonable time but in a little while the stock of- fruit that was near btcme exhausted and tho boys calded zusi return in time tOne day the teachor announced that thereafter ay boy sttjiaff out for any purpose later than one oclock should be punished with a severity whose memory would bo luiinc The boys above named met early the next morn ing and held a council and had several warm speeches pcaedseveral resolutions recounting the fact that they had always been allowed daring pawpaw time to gather the fruit and that they ought to be still allowed to do so that they lost very little tie and found inI so doing a great deal ef pleasure Mel vin was called on for a speech he arose with great solemnity U gave it as hisI opinion that the teachar was altogether unreasonable and that the boys should not yield to his unreasonable demands and no matter what others might say or do he would say emphatically giveI me or me death The sentiImentser one more chance and they resolved to get fruit that day or die in attempt Accordingly that day they went to the pawpaw patch and stayed unreasonably long some of them were in favor of appeasing Hookers wrath by taking him some of the best fruits but this proposition was voted down by an al most unanimous vote The boys return Y ed to the school house about 2 oclock and the teacher said nothing to them except that he would settle with them in the morning helld a council of war Melvin was appointed commander in chief and he drew up his forces in the following order Jim Taylor was give the command of the center Allen Pile commanded the left wing supported by Lucian Hurt Rollin Hurt was given command of the right wing supported by Bascom Garnett Jo Nat Conover was stationed near the front door to cut off Hookers retreat Jim Taylor had armed himself with the swordof the spirit in the shape ofI Hoovers Bible and all the others were armed with such things as could be im provised for the occasion As soon as all these arrangements had been made Hooker arrived upon the scene and drew up the culprits in line for punishment they came up in battle array according to the previous arranged program Hooker made them a speech telling them how he hated to punish them but his law had been broken his law like unto the laws of the Medes and Persians and there was no escape makeIken law Melvin replied saying that they hated to be punished as bad or probably worse than Hooker hated to give it and as to the law Hooker had made it and Hooker could change it or do away with it altogether Hooker replied that what he had written he had written or words to that effectI and tat they must and should ished At an agreed on signal from the commander Jim Taylor let fly with Hookers bible and struck the teacher fsquare irithe face staggering him back when the commander ordered aI charge all along the lineIS To Be 134 YEARS OLD l Two Shilling and Six Pence Piece Money issued By

County the thoroughbred stallion Elliott whose services will be donated to the people of this section The Bureau was organizedseveral weeks ago in order to help improve the general class of hors stock of the state To that end it is thoroughbred stallions of purchasingI conformation and temperament as will produce excellent general purpose horses when bred to the common farm mares of those sections to which they are sent So far as the Bureau is concerned the services of these stallions peoIno monetary return directly or indirect ly from them A service fee of 10 is charged which goes in full to the man in whose care the stallions are placed- in order to recompense them for their expense and their trouble The Bu reau has this far sent out fifteen horses They have been placed in all sections of Kentucky from Ballard and McCraken counties in the west to Car ter and Powell counties in the east from Owen Breckinridge and Hender Triggiand Laurel counties in the South The horse which haz been sent to largeIthrough the efforts of D C Hopper who has taken great personal interest in getting a horse for this section J H Smith one of the leading citizens of the county who has a large store at Font Hill was chosen as a good man in whose care to place the horse and he and Mr Hopper went to Lexington where they interviewed officers of the Breeding Bureau and secured the promise 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 racal 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 hisIII both of which races he defeated the famous race horse Claude the Pleasant Plate the Norfork Purse as well as a number of other notable races which he won from good horses Elliott wes especially noted for his ability to go a long 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

of to day Thus the wheels of time roll on and we can scarcely realize it until we give ourselves to a moments thought and our minds revert to the reminiscences of our childhood days Then it is that we feel like saying with some one who so truthfully said Give me back my happy childhood take me to my home once more Voicing the sentiments of almost every one who have grown to manhood and womanhood and have wandered away from the scenes of their early day Thinking of the bygone days I proposed to write a letter to the News and it seems to me but yesterday when the News was in its infancy and myself in my boyish way would as its correspondent from the little village of Knifley up on Caseys Creek send in the News each week and then wait until the coming of the paper to see in print the writing of your scribe from Knifley So quickly has the time flown that I can recall the joy that was mine When in Columbia and Harris would give me a package of envelopes addressed in large black letters to the Adair County News Then with a boyish pride I would return to the place that all hold dear and write the naves telling of deaths and births of the crops and weather and when the wedding bells pealed forth their chimes I was the first to herald it to the News Always being present at the ball game and debating society and many are the times that I have sat and listened to the eloquence of Steve Knifley and Dr Gose as they put forth their efforts in the Kangaroo Court Of the passing away of the old landmarks Allow me to speak among whom are Uncle Bob Tucker and Uncle Jimmie Jones the former serving for some years as a faithful officer of Adair County and to the lat ler I have sat and listened for hours as he told of the daring feats accomplished by men on both sides during the war and up untill the day of his death he could call the roll of his Company as it was called in the 60s But they are gone they have answered to the call up yonder and surrendered to the commander of the Universe stacked arms on the battlements of Heaven and are fortified on the plains of piece where the arms of a thousand worlds dare not attack How well did one of the apostles by the pen of inspiration say That life was even a vapor that appeareth for a little time and vanisheth away And it is through the midst of a few short years that I look back upon the incidents of which I have writ ten Since leaving Kentucky and coming to Tennessee I see how well the two have been termed the sister States Finding the same big hearted hospitable and friendly people that I left and it was only last year when our city was filled with thousands of people from all over the United States and even foreign coun tries to attend the Volunteer Students convention held in Nashville The doors of the best homes all over the the city were thrown open to receive them and upon their leaving all joined in to praise the people saying that they were the most hospitable and congenial people that they ever satisfiedmeet that should such an occasion ever occur anywhere in the grand old state of Kentucky that they would meet the same class of good people there Upon my arrival in Nashville seven years ago I began as an Apprentice to learn the art of stove moulding in the foundry of the Phillips Buttorff Mfg Co and was making rapid progress when unfortunately I was burned with molten iron which practi ially disabled me Since then I have been engaged in various parts of the clerical department The firm which is one of the largest of its kind in the South employs between eight hundred and a thousand people including factories foundrys warehouses and sales rooms Having a daily output of five hundred stoves and ranges per day And upon the first Saturday in June of each year the great P B family consisting of employees families and friends are given an outing by the company and they go some 12 or 15 miles up the uld Cumberland to a beautiful grove it generally taking from three to six loads for the largest steamboats on the river to carry them all day They play swing jump run eat and enjoy them selves and often twilight is stealing on when the coarse whistle of the last boat warns the pleasure seekers to get on board Then sailing down the river home another day is gone never to be forgotten Now when I have anything interesting to the read ers of the NeVSII will come again

Every Wednesday BY THE Adair County NewsCompany INCORPORATED u J CHAS S HARRIS EDITOR c Democratic newspaper devoted to the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair 1and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as eecond class mail matter WED MARCH 27 190T i For the last Few days the decline in the selling values of rail road stocks and bonds is causing alarm This condition is said to be the result of State LegisI Iatures and the investigation and atitude of the Federal Govern ment to secure a fair deal At any rate the decline is rapid and does not forebode good to the holders of such securities Some are so alarmed as to predict aI panic in the near future while others are more conservative and believe that the business of the country in general will not be seriously affected E v id e n t ly the investigation should not bej discouraged whether it results in good or bad for the time be ing If the great railroads are doing a fair square business an investigation will not hurt them long but will strengthen their securities If they are giving inadequate service to the public discriminating between individ uals or sections combining against public welfare then they should be forced to do the right and there never was a better time than the present It will be unfortunate for investors in in watered stocks to have the worngs exposed but it will prove a blessing to many others No business that has the public by the throat should go unrestrain ed It is the duty of the government to see that such conditions do not prevail and if we are not r4 mistaken the President is in ear nest and will have a show of powerfulthis countryC The Legislature of the various States seem bent on a reduction of railroad fare and to this more than the National move may trouble arise That a two cent fare is adequate and just in some States we do not doubt but in others it is doubtless not stimut ating enough to cause new to be built or old ones to give the best service The cost of con struction varies cost of opera tion varies and the source of supplies may be too meager to justify the action some of the States are taking We believe in a fair square deal that every honorable business whether public or private that individual and corporation should stand on equal footing and alll entitled to reasonable while a- service 11 should give the best possible We trust that the next Legislature of this State will not jump at a conclusion and pander to public sentiment on this line without a full invest igation and full knowledge of the best manner to advance our commercial resources In response to the many ap peals from many of the commer cial organizations of the Mississ Presfident has create4 an Inland Wa terwaysJGbmisi6n whose duty it is to investigate and deter 1 mine the most important jm streamsPj in the Mississippi Valley country first afterwards to extend to other sections of the country This means that the Federal Gov ernment realizes the great worth of navigable rivers and that nav igable water should be made iiall the streams as soon as ble The first move will be in this part of the country and our people and commercial organiza I tions interested in the develop ment of the Cumberland and other rivers ought to keep in touch with this great movement and do all within their power to aid the commission and to se cure development t reIThe redistricting nl cas u passed by the last Legislature was contested by the Republicans of Butler and Ohio counties and the courts in both instances held the law unconstitutional Last week the Appellate Court sustained the decision of the lower courts Good Such legisla Iieveryonly purpose was to gain politic al advantage by an unfair meas ure No Legislative body State or National should be alloweJ to t prevent or nullify a true express on of legal voters and the sooner the courts in other States follow the lead of our courts in such matters the sooner political jus tice will be established The Kentucky Legistature is not an exception it is our court The Court says Equality of rep resentation is the vital principle of Democracy and that no Republican institution can live with out it There is aJ Iipoliticalsquare deal but were made to Ry advance party ends consequent f ly the State Legislatures and the rq National Congress have largely r become the misrepresentatives ofI rJifestrnment by the people and for ii the people It is a difficult m proposition to form districts en tirely clear of disadvantages to 6 one or the other great parties but forming them only with the view building one at the destruction of the other is as rotten as it is contemptible Every Democrat every Republican ought to be willing to abide by rule and seek to cut out busIIand controle corpora ions are facing an indignant people but the political Boss and the many political combines and monopolies both in the States and Nation are permitted to flourish practice deception and collect political usury The Standard Oil Company the com corporationsI ny of the States and also by the Government and yet po- itical chicanery combinations and deals are known toexist to the detriment of honest fair representation and just legisla tion Back of the business meth ods now causing much trouble and threatening the prosperity of the country is the political methods that have prevailed for many years Unjust legislation will produce unjust business methods The remedy ought to be clear to every intelligent vo ter J W Jackman has a fine assortment of garden seeds from

last Sunday Born to the wife of Joseph L Campbell a daughter also to the wife of James T Lemmon a son Both of these fathers are wearing pleasant smiles since 0 P Lemmon and family who have been visiting W H Lemmon since Christmas left for their home in Kansas last week They have had a pleas ant visit and enjoyed the hospi talityof their many Kentucky friends The good wishes of Itheir friends go with them Rev John Bowles from near 1 Campbellsville preached two inI teeesting sermons Saturday and Sunday night at Pellyton and on Sunday at lloclock at Providence church Brother Bowles is a man in whom every one has implicit confidence and gives much good advice in his sermons logicrWhile he is not considered an or ator in the common acceptation of the term his life and exam ple are such that he is a power for good He has been in the ministerial work about twenty years and has faithfully performed the Masters work We are pleased to note that Prof T C Cherry will instruct the Adair County Teachers Institute again this year Mr Cherry gave good satisfaction last year and Mrs Shelton is toI be congratulated on securing hisI services for the preset year The teachers of the county need special instruction on Psychology and the Science and Art of teaching It is time Teachers were departing from the old methods r of teaching and adopting newer and better ones In this day of energy and push children are en titled to better instruction and more modern methods than were in use twentyfive years agoINow that Spring is approach ing it would be a commendable enterprise if every farmer would look around him and see what condition his farm is in If the fences are down and the i ners grown up in briars and bUShI 7es his houses and barns repair and everything in a run down condition generally right len and there the owner ought to go to work to put it all in a good state of repair It is this way of putting farms in a high state of cultivation that makes a good neighborhood and prosperous community Suppose ev ary man in this county should for the next ten years devote his time to the improvement of his farm instead of wasting it as many do by sitting around stores arid other places and talk mg politics and very often gosI and meddling with other bepeoplesthe result If one who gone during that time should return at the end of this period he would scarcely know the coun try on account of the wonderful improvement Let every body go t- time work instead of wasting in idleness and the result will be marvelous The country generally will be imI proved and times will be muchII betterAs Fiscal Court meets in next month it is to be hoped that it will constantly keep in view the interest of the taxpayers of the county and keep the tax rate as low as possible consistent with the progress of the times The masses of the taxpayers of our county are not in a condition fi nancially to pay high taxes and want a low tax rate The Fiscal I l Court should be composed of the very best business men of the county men who know how to save the peoples money and will do it They should exercise the same care and discretion in ap propriating the peoples money that a judicious business man would exercise in the transact ing of his own business affairs The Court should use the utmost economy in making all their ap propriations for any and all things keeping constantly in view the welfare of the taxpayers Gentlemen by all means give us economy in your appro priations and receive our best thanks To remove a cough you must get at the cold which causes the
