Hooker was quick to see it When the whole line was ordered forward they literally covered the teacher but he shook them off like an old raccoon with a lot of Hooker soon saw that while he pupsI manageone two or three at a could not hold his own against a dozen and thinking that discretion is the betI ter part of valor he shook himsel loose and made for the back door and through it he went He fell back hastily but in good order and took a position under a large beech tree with both flanks protected by a staked and rider fence Here he held his position for three Tong mortal hours while the boys held high carnival in the church The girls had all taken fright and left for home leaving the beligerants in full possession of the school Hooke finally withdrew his forces and advanced backward and took up his Winter quarters in Columbia The trustees were called to consid r the matter and each one of them had one or more sons in the transgression and they re solved that inasmuch as Hooker had failed to enforce proper discipline hie had better not undertake to teach any longer Another teacher was engaged to finish the term and the preache concluded to go back to preaching for a livehoodWe now to the most interest ing and romantic episode in his exper ience of three days and nights in his fathers cave Melvin had long beer anxious to explore that cave but his father would not allow it telling him each time that there was danger oi getting lost and being bitten by ven omous serpents or being devoured b3- wild beasts Melvin turned a deaf ear to all his fathers advice and procur ing a tallow candle and a companion Rollin Hurt setthe person of young out on Saturday afternoon for the long coveted exploration They had thor oughly read up on caves and every be found waspassage that might per fectly familiar to the youthful explorers They had both been in the cave before but had not gone far enough to satisfy their curiosity They remembered some branches to the cave that they were anxious to investigate and they investigated Lighting their tallow candles they stepped boldly forth into the first strange prong that they reached and the half had not been told They went into a large room which was beautiful to behold Nature had lavished her beauties far s beyond their expectations They stood entranced for a time and witnessed the wonderful phenomena Rock icicles ceilingSages When fin lly they were satisfied and 4wanted to go on or return they they had lost their way In spite their best efforts they could not find their way out of that beautiful room they tried on all sides until they be came thoroughly alarmed and to their candles were al to their horror most gone Like the foolish Virgins in the parable they had not prepared themselves with lighting material Just before the lights went out they discovered a little fissure in the rock on one side They wedged themselves in rthat the lights departed and r were left in darkness so dense that it could be almost felt They struggle forth in the vain hope that they wer on the right road to the mouth of the cave but in vain The muscles of the PhosIphorescent had no watch and if they had they could not see the time They wandered seenibig rock to fall back or to fall on th aI other side and then climb again They at last got on a large flat rock and down and natures calm restorer laidI came to them and they slept complete exhaustion for several hours and dreamed of home and mother To Be Continued LOCAL OP TION ELECTION To Be Held in Metcalfe County onI Saturday May 18th The citizens of

take up the road proposition and it is hoped that all citizens who feel an interest in the build ing of good substantialroads will be present There is not a doubt as to the desires of our people there is not a doubt that a great majority are anxious forI the court to start the building of roads that will stand the strain of heavy traffic the rains and freezes There is not a reason why this important step should J longer be delayed and if the Citizens who are interested in j this question of such vital im portance to every section of our county will quit their work for A Ile day appear in Columbia and j let the court know that they are ins hearty accord with this move 4 ment that they are pleading forI ft and willing to bear the expense through a road tax thenI not a single member could hesitate People of the country should act and act at once Now is the time to aid in inaugu rating a system of road building that will in a few years reach every part of our county with roads worth many thousands of dollars to our farmers For several years this question has been agitated and good resolutions blighta ofethe people and suppressed and by the Magistrates 1 tvjde1ayed fear of displeasing the and resting under cen sure and criticism of being extravagant and reckless as to thej common welfare That day has passed A new sentiment a new demand a new realization of our resources and needs and a new set of men to grapple with these new conditions are on the scene of action facing the same mud holes and mires that worried the people 40 years ago Of all times in the entire history of Adair county the present is the opportune time to start the work to institute a system that will not die in a year but grow stronger as its benefits are seen J and realized by those heretofore indifferent The Columbia Commercial Club embracing a large part of taxIpayersinvestigating road building in other counties and for several weeks has been actively engaged in developing a plan to be pre sent for the consideration of our Fiscal Court Every member of the Club is enthusiastic for the building of good roads every one wants a system adopted that will secure a few miles of
