THE EARLY HISTORY OF MELVIN WHITE By U L Taylor- CHAPTER IV When the prisoners waked from their sleep it was still dark It took them some time to remember their whereabouts and appreciate fully their situation They did not have to washII nor eat breakfast They held a consultation and in a little while commenced their search for an outlet to the outer world They did not know how long they had slept they did not know whether it was night or day morning of eveningit was all the same to them They had both read the description of a storm at sea by a heathen poet where the darkness was so dense En Palinurus no distinction found Between the night and day such dark ness reigned around They started but did not know whether they were going East West North or South They climb ove rocks crawled under rocks and fre quently could not go at all Melvin atone time climb up a rock wall and when he reached the top he fell ove the other side into a deep pool of water so deep that he would not undertake to wade it He got wet up to the neck which added very greatly to his dis comfort Hunger was gnawing at their very vitals but it had to gnaw onThe boys had been missed by the neighborhood and their parents were very much distressed at Tabor Sunday Sohool Sunday morning It was pro posed to organize a rescuing party for the opinion of the people generally was that they were lost in the cave Some man had seen them going in that direction on Saturday afternoon Several brave men and boys volunteered tc join the party but Mr Oscar Pile told them there was no use to hunt foi themif they were in the cave they would get outthere was no such good luck as for them not to find the way out Just wait he said till Monday and they would be out He knew them too well Mr Piles views prevailed and the party did not start Mean while the prisoners in the cave were not idle In their blunderings and crawlings they finally came to a little stream of water and while it was a Godsend it got them into more trouble They knew there was a stream that issued from one of the mouths of the caue in great torrents after a heavy rainthey did not know but it was raining in the outer world and that the little branch might be swelled at any time to dangerous pro portions But they undertook to follow that stream come what might if they could only find out which way the sluggish little thing was running They tried many plans to no purpose but it finall occurred to Rollin who wore a straw hat to test it in that way He placed his hat on the water and put 1V his hands on each side of it and was delighted to find it floating down the crawalongthey could stand up but generally had to crawl Sometimes the ceiling was so low that they could not get through at all but they would back out and try again and sometimes it would require hours to go ten feet Thus the days and nights were slipping away Hunger was still gnawing at their vi tals sand Worry and distress were wearing their lives away They became so Vcompletely exhausted they fell asleep tJ- r r and not knowing what minute the branch might rise and completely over whelm them of course their sleep was not very refreshing but they wer finally roused from their slumbers and commenced crawling on and they at last rewarded by seeing day wereI but they had to struggle long and boriously before their feet were firmly set on terra firma When released from the prison hous they lost no time in going to thei homes Melvins parents were consulting about getting up the rescuing par ty on Monday morning when Melvin brother Bram came running into the house and said Papa let the fat prodigal be killed the calf has return ed Then Melvin came in wet muddy lean and hungry and fell before his father and said Father Ihave sinned before thee and am no more worthy to be called thy son The father an swered You shall no longer be called my son and when you have rested up a little I shall proceed to cut every particle of skin from your back for disobey ing my command After this escapade Melvins neigh bor women tried to get him to stay at home and work and help his father on the farm They had prepared them selves with several scriptural texts and Mrs Pile was appointed to fire them at Melvin at the first opportunity She did not have to wait long Melvin passed by her house and she called to him to stop She told him that the neighbors were anxious to see him settle down to work and make something of himself she said she had some scripture she wanted to quote to him He told her to say on She said Ir Proverbs 6 and 6 we have these words Go to the ant thou sluggard consider her ways and be wise which having no chief overseer or ruler provideth her meat in the Summer and jathereth her food in the harvest And again the ants are a people not strong yet they provide their meat in the Summer Now Melvin These ire the words of King Solomon the wisest man that ever lived Melvin listened attentively and respectfully find when Mrs Pile was done he answered Yes I know that Solom talked that way back in his day but we have later and higher directions as to iving Jesus in his sermon on the Mount said And why are ye anxious concerning raiment Consider the limes of the field how they grow they toil not neither do they spin yet I say into you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of hese To Be Continued PIERCE

before he took his bed and at his barn and in his room I coud hear his voice in prayer everyday And when I would go in his room he would greet me with such a pleasant smile and a cheerful word it would make my heart jump with joy and gladness Sitting even at his table he would brightly praise the Lord and say 1 am ready Bless God and at his death bed called his children and asked them to meet him in heaven He said he saw Jesus and his father and the angels singing His soul to day is with its God His body is laying beneath the sod so he has gone tc dwell with him who sent him here I Our

KY APRIL 10 1907 n I METHODIST ITINERANT BY MR R Y THOMAS JR Methodism has always been the most potential pioneer force in all America for the advancement of Christian civi lization With no library but a Bible with no earthly possessionexcept may be a horsewith no expectant reward but that of duty done the oldtime Methodist itinerant pioneer preacher with the oldtime religion selfsacrific ing consecrated fearless marched in the very vanguard plunged into the un known wilderness and blazed the way for others to follow And following after came a saintly line of ministers who have builed the superstructure of Methodism beautiful and grand and have carried the banner of the cross to every land on the habitable globe In the worlds history more than nine mil lions of human beings have been slain upon the sacrificial altars of pseudore ligions but the blood of no martyr stains the spotless white habiliments of Meth odism Its teachings are the teachings of Jesus its gospel is the gospel of peace Cawnpore and Lucknow are immortal memorials of British forti tude and valor and the story of the Alamo will forever remain an imperish able monument to the unconquerable and exalted spirit of American devotion and courage but the achievements of the Wesleys of Coke of Asbury of Bascom and all that devoted company of consecrated contemporary ministers will forever remain a greater monu beIcausetriumphs of peace and love and religion Preachers of the gospel are spiritual advisers of human destiny The de voted Christian minister a faithful friend follows us all along the rugged path of lifes uneven way With crys tal drops of holy water he dedicates to God the tender infant smiling in its I mothers arms and teaches young and lisping lips the story of the cross In youthful wayward thoughtless days he points us to the narrow way lest we dash t foot against the stones of sin and ally In manhoods prime he watcftes oer us all along ambitions glorious cheating way When time iiarefcanged the raven locks to white of winter snows he then becomes the comfort and the solace of our declining years And then at last disease and age have done their perfect work and death knocks at the portal of a soul he follows to the grave and there amid the tears and flowers of loved ones left behind he breathes the final prayer of hope and consolation Methodist itinerants are messengers of eternal life There does not live a mentally healthful man but who in concious waking hours sometimes tnrns to thoughts of God and future and if doubting yet believes From the throne of the eternal God over the invisible wires of thought to every human mind there flashes a mes sage of the land beyond and in every human heart the generous soil of faith bears the flower and the fruitage of immortality Life is death and death is life again The hills are eternal The trees and the flowers are immor tail To day they wither and decay tomorrow they come forth in the new windIingsummer sunshine bud and blossom in supernal beauty When the sunset comes and the shadow of death falls across this mortal life when we hearth final farewells of breaking hearts when we feel for the last time the ten der touch of loving lips and gentle hands ten beyond the shadowy portal hope sees the beckoning hands of loved ones gone and faith the beacon lights of ev erlasting life PURE BRED EGGS FOR

Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as eecon clags mailmatter f APRIL 10 1907 IWED weeks session of the Fis scal Court was one of unusual in- terestj made so by the introduc i tion of one of the most vita questions that confront the en tire people of the countya ques tion that not only affects the happiness and convenience of the people but one that figures in real values It was the question of building macadam roads the inauguration of a system that held out hope arid inspiration to every part of our county and pointed to a time when the mud holes and mires of today would disappear on all of our leading roadsa system that would ap pjealto the pride and well being iof every part of the county It failed and its failure but marks XtEe decline in the thrift and en v terprfse for which this county has received broad advertising and for which a good number of its citizens have energetically devoted much of their time tal 1entS and means In the entire history of this county no prop osition of public import and mer ik ever had a more united hon est and painstaking effort on the t part of the strongest taxpayers No proposition was ever more thorouhly and systematically studied and developed by an interested people than the one pre sented by the Commercial Club and in truth and in justice we believe that it was absolutely free from features by which t gjaft could be practiced It- safeguarded every dollar and ev ery dime and guaranteed full and lasting value but it had been developed by the Commer cial Club and was presented by that organization an organiza tion we later found to be mis havingnecessity and the general good and in view of this its proposi tion was killed by a vote of 5 to 2 for it The mind of some mem bers of the court seemed to have been poisened against the Club and it is doubtful whether some r of them would have approved the adoption of the Declaration of Independence if the Club hadI suchresentedactions of the court painstaking effort on the part of the many citizens of this town and the further fact that the County Judge and County Attorney were thoroughly in accord with the movement and made an honor able effort for favorable action the defeat sinks this county low er in progressiveness than any move that has been made for many years The plan devel ropedby the Club is top exten siye and its details too full to be given in this issue but we hope to present it in next issue that the people of this county may wseerand understand that njSeftort Vqtithepaftof thep onjierpiai iyClutwas gJIS agaittn Y ax of thiscount3 but mkt to ifitablish a r stis l Wulti l MasIt l l u tJje court ejecfcthe plan offered but it downed every propositio that meant to build our public roads or to improve them It refused to adopt a system of any kind refused to use any of the present funds in making or encouraging the citizens to make some substantial roads The bridge proposition fared as ever road proposition The only effort the only evidence that the majority part of the court gave in favor of any plan submitted was an order made authorizin the County Judge to subscrib for 5000 stock in a turnpik company to be formed to build a road to Cumberland river and when the road is built to the county line and a guarantee that it will be completed then the county will pay the amount pledged While thi would be of great value to Adai county yet there is no evident that it will materialize withii the life of present efforts The tax levy for general expense was cut to 15 cents and the road tax blotted out of existence It is not manly not game to wilt under adversg circum stances it is not wise nor progressive to yield to disappoint ment and it is not ust o reber- r against the majority The Com mercial Club made an upright honorable plea and presented in telligent equitable BTans for bet ter public conditions but got nothing but defeat The court is composed of good meaning men good citizens and wil doubtless see their mistake next Winter if not sooner The first real effort to get a good system of substantial road building has proPIositionbut a backward step was taken Beyond a doubt the people of this county will not be contented with such a move nor indorse the action of the Fiscal Court We have no appology to offer for the interest we felt nor the effort made to get a good plan of road building started We quit the fight with no malice and with no charges of bad motives on the part of any one It is not our purpose to dictate nor criticise it is not our makeup to sell and sour Our desire to see progressive methods strengthen conditions changed and to help secure and enjoy some of the conven iences of modern life alone have prompted the News to take the position of advancement and if this present policy is the standard by which the people of Adair county desire their interests advanced their happiness increased and their blessings secured or if it their purpose to seek the lowest possible taxation content themselves with present conditions and live in peace and happiness this publication will loubtless be to some extent an annoying medium The advocates of good roads ought to give Judge Hancock County Attorney Smythe Squire Rowe and Squire Eubank a learty hand shake and keep the ball rolling If the Magistrates truly represented their districts mud must be a powerful good

member of the court who refused to adoPt some good system of making substantial roads and who shouldered the responsibility oi blotting out every cent of road tax The Club is all right and if it proves game can and will bv worth much to Columbia and Adair county- Adair county ought to issue 60000 in 20 year 5 per cent bonds and build 50 or 75 miles of good pike roads These bonds could be carried and paid off in 20 years on a levy of 20 cents or less and the people immediately secure the blessings of the good roads It is a proposition that will bear the closest investiga tion and grow
