The Directors of the Green county Turnpike Company we are reliably in formed have secured 13000 bond pike l subscriptions of stock and all rights of way to the Adair county line They have made a call for 10 per cent of the capital with which to begin work and the survey is now being made There is not a reasonable doubt that the road will be constructed It is now up to the citizens of Adair to get busy Mr James Dulworth President of the Green county Turnpike Company says he can raise 1000 mostly in Green for the Adair end of the road The people in the Hatcher and Hutchison neighborhood who are clamoring for bridges will combine in the interest of the turnpike and will add something to the subscriptions they raised to secure a bridge It is believed that the Fiscal Court will subscribe for not less than 2000 of the stock of the Adair county road Why not all these interests get togetherWe that the road will be a low grade broad gauge class A road Each of these propositions will help the other If you do not see your way to subscribe to both subscribe to the one you want most LINDSAYWILSON WINS The match game of base ball last Saturday afternoon at Lindsay Wilson park between the Lindsay Wilson Training School team and the Russell prings Academy was one of the best fF exhibitions witnessed here for several seasons The opposing nines were very evenly matched and a tug of war wag the result The first half of the game the visiting team was in the lead but the home boys won out by the score of 9 to 8 Romie Judd the Training School pitcher was in fine form and if he had received proper support the score would have told a different story The boys from the Springs are a gentlemanly set and will receive a cordial welcome in the game to be here next Staurday flayed WM BUTLER In Lincolns Views of Slavery in 1837 by Ida M Tarbell published in McClures we clip the following extract From a photograph owned by his grandson Hon William J Butler Springfied Illinois William Butler was a native of Kentucky being born in Adair County that State December 15 1797 In the war of 1812 he carried important despatches from the Gover nor of Kentucky to General Harrison in the field traveling on horseback He went to Sangamon County Illinois in 1828 In 1836 he was appointed clerk of the Circuit Court by Judge Logan whom he had known in Kentucky In 1859 he was appointed by Governor Bissell State Treasurer of Illinois to fill a vacancy ana in 1860 was elected to that office He was married to Eliza beth Rickard December 18 1863 He died in Springfield January 11 1876 Soon after becoming a resident of Springfield Lincoln went to William Butlers house to board There he was like a member of the family He lived with Mr Butler until his marriage in 1842 The two men were ever the warmest personal and political friends CONCERNING STATE NORMAL SCHOOL Editor Newsr At the beginning of the last term of the State Normal I wrote you a few words in regard to the State Normal and thought perhaps that a few words at the beginning of the second term might be of some interest to the Adair county teachers The second term opened Monday April 2 with about 750 students enrolled I wish to say in the out set that the success of the State Normal from its very inception which has been only three short months has been wonderful and phenomenal The attendance has far surpassed the expectation of even the most sanguine- I have never seen a better body of students any where than attend the State Normal and I am sure that with such a fine body of teachers Ky will not long lag behind in education as she does today The W Ky State Normal is going to be an important factor in bringing the educational standard of Kentucky to the front Pres Cherry is afire to the situation and is the right man in the right place The fac ulty is one of the strongest in the whole country Dr Kinnamon who is dean and who has charge of pedogogy and psychology is a graduate of Clark University and is one of the most promi nent educators in the country Dr Fred Mutchler who is also a graduate of Clark University has charge of the science department and nature study He is recognized as one of the ablest men of his profession in the country He will teach nature study in Yale University during the Summer term after the Summer term is out in the State Normal This shows him to be an able instructor Miss Sarah E Scott who is a graduate of the State Normal of Indiana and a student in the University of Chicago has charge of observation practice and method She too is proving herself equal to the occasion and Im sure will inspire many new ideas of teaching that will prove a great factor in the teach ing profession in the future No teach er that aims to be progressive can stay away from such a Normal Schooland if they do it will only be a matter of time when they will be eliminated and progressive teachers who have had Normal training will take their place The opportunity is yours will you take advantage of it B W SHERRILL MRS CURD ENTERTAINS Mrs T H Curd entertained Friday afternoon in honor of Miss Nell Rhorer who is to be wedded April 24 The event was a souvenir spoon

In behalf of the Columbia Band II wish to make a statement concerning the Band stand which was proposed to be erected over the pomp The propo sition as made by the band was as fol lows If the town

confine himself to the facts but if it pleases the court I ask that the witness as he seems very much embarrassed be allowed to tell his story in his own way without too much circumlocution Well said Dud I was just aimin to tell what mama said to Melvin Well Melvingwas jest mad and wanted his money and Logue had ort to a paid him and mama she says to Melvin says she Melvin you jest let Logue alone and Ill pay you the sixty cents and she did pay it and that was all right with Melvin he was jest mad There were several other witnesses and a good deal of conflict in their tes timony and it would have been hard for the jury to decide had it not been for the clear and explicit instructions of the court His honor gave two in structions as follows 1st if the jury believe from the testimony beyond the influence of a reasonable doubt that defendent in this county and before the iinding of the warrant did in Malice make an assault on the plaintiff the commonwealth with guns pistols knives and rocks at his own house and did shoot at the plaintiff and missed him and set fire to plaintiffs bed they should find him guilty as charged in the warrant and fix his fine at such sum as the bed was proven to be reasonably worth not exceeding the amount claim ed in the warrantunless 2nd the jury believes from the testi mony beyond the influence of a reason able doubt that the commonwealth owed defendent the sum of sixty cents in good and lawful m onej and had up to this time failed and utterly refused to pay defendant then he the defend ent had a right to collect his claim and in doiny so used only such fprce as was necessary or apparently necessary then the jury should find him not guil ty on the ground of justification and apparent necessity The jury retired and in a short while brought in a ver dict of guilty Shortly after this Melvin got into trouble with a perapetic clock peddler from Connecticut who was perambulat ting in the neighborhood The peddler was extolling the virtues of his clocKs anytthat no man in the community had ever clockIthat was at all equal to his unless he had bought from him Melvin listened for a time then answered that his father had a clock that had been lunI ning for 50 years and that it was now worth more than all the peddler could carry at any one load and tr at he was talking entirely too big for anybody engaged in his business any way and that he had better remain a little quiet At this the peddler became very much enraged and remarked that he was ready to stand by what he hadsaid and if anybody dident like it he could take the less of it Melvin told him x that he did not like the idea of fighting and that Kentuckians were not inclined to fight but that they had the reputa tion of dying game and that if he the peddler would just remain where he then was for thirty minutes they would settle the matter in a satisfactory manner The clock peddler said he would remain Melvin went home and reported to his father that he had got into trouble with a yankee clock pedd er caused by comparing his clock with the yankees and the peddler had invited him to fight it out He told the peddler that he would be back in thirty minutes ready for any emergency he didnot like to have any difficulty without con sulting with you They were standing near Mr Whites favorite table The table a folding leaf one was made of beautiful cherry each leaf having on ly one piece and the top the same way Mr White thought a great deal of his table and would not allow it to be used I except when he had company After Melvin had reported to him the cause of the trouble the old man said well Melvin you had better let that yankee alone if he would fight a regular fist andskull flght you might have some show But he wont fight that way These downeasters are a cool calculat ing set of men and they a ways fight with weepins you cant fight with veepens and you would have no chance Melvin reached down into his boot leg and drew out a murderous knife of Damascus steel and made an over thrust and drove it down into the top of that beautiful table remarking if he has any better weepin than this let him trot it out The knife was driven almost through the top of the table and stood there quivering like a leaf The father was so out raged that he could find no words that would do justice to the subject and he maintained a dogged silence Melvin drew his knife from the table put itI securely in his boot leg and started back to Dr Gadberrys where he had left the clock Peddler but found that he had vamoosed the ranch The peddler told the docter that he didnot like the way that man White talked about dying game He said he had a mother in the east and she was very much opposed to him getting into difficulties always told him that he could not make a living by fighting and said the fact is I do not want to die 110tIwill just pay my fare and leave before Mr White gets back and he left To Be Continued CUNDIFF WATSON Last

County News Columbia Ky FOR GOOD ROADS St Marys Ky EDITOR NEWS I do not know whether I am on the right subject or not and neither do I care but every person has a perfect right to express his opinions fearlessly and impartially regardless of what other people think So I will advance mine upon one which seems to be en grossing the minds of the citizens of Columbia and Adair County at the pre sent time According to my views of the road question which has been agitatedso much during the past few months The Adair Fiscal Court certainly made a very great mistake in refusing to make provisions for the betterment of the roads in Adair county Good roods are one of essential elements of a prosper ous community in both a business and commercial sense and any town or county which will not take an active interest in the making of good roads will soon be termed as back numbers in the progressive march and their atti tude in the matter will be a chagrin to their business and commercial interests The benefit derived from good roads in Adair county by me would be in significant but there are lots of other people who must travel the roads to get to Columbia to do their trading and common sense teaches that a ma jority of the people will travel the best roadeven if they are compelled to go to another town and the distance is even a little greater Therefore the Columbia merchants should take a hand in the good road question and aid in solving the problem to a creditable de greeAccording to my view of the matter the magistrates of Adair county have taken a backwoods stand on the question of good roads but it is of no concern to me They are the Judges of their own business However there is one commendable act to the credit of that honorable body if they did it and that is the suggestion to put a rock wall around the Court House and if this is done wouldnt it be one of the greatest feats ever accomplished by any Fiscal Court in the State Wall in the temple of justice and then may be so many evil doers will not venture within the gates thereof Then at the same time allow the outoftown peo ple to travel through the mud and wa ter to Columbia to do their business there

THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS COLUMBIA KY APRIL 24 1907 g MONTICELLO A Town That Has Jumped to a Young City In The Last Eight Years Much Interest in Oil and a Railroad Soon Expected Sunday forenoon 14th inst at 715 in company with Mr R L Boone a real estate agent of Paris Ky I left Columbia for Montcello the capital of Wayne county in that city at 6 oclock in the afternoon We stopped at the Hotel Ramsey receiving courteous treatment during our two days stay Monticello is growing as fast per haps as any inland town in Kentucky and the present indications point to a city of five or six thousand inhabitants in the next few years The town is soon to be connected by rail the con tract calling for the completion of a road from Tatesville Pulaski county tc Monticello within the next ten months The work of building the road perhaps was commenced last Wednesday morn ing two carloads of tools having ar rived at Burnside the morning of the 16th inst Quite a number of the cit izens of Monticello and of Wayne coun ty have taken stock in the enterprise from 500 to 5000 each I did not strike an individual during my stay in Monticello but had full confidence that the road would be built and completed according to contract The recent advance in oil has put new vim in the companies operating in the Wayne county fields there being drilled at this time from seventeen to twenty wells I did not learn the number of producing wells but was told by an oil man that ten thousand barrels were piped to Somerset weekly He also stated that he was satisfied that there was more oil in Wayne county than in any other field in Kentucky There is also an abundance of coal and with oil coal and a railroad the reader can plainly see that Wayne county is pro ducmg what will necessarily make Monticello a thriving business place Eight years ago there were only five or six hundred inhabitants Today the number of people who are living in the corporate limits reach fifteen hun dred and fiftytwo There are very few business houses and dwellings in Monticello today that were standing eight years ago A splendid fire visit ed the place wiping out many of the old shacks and those that were not de stroyed have been removed and com modious business houses and handsome residences erected The street leading to the Burnside Pike is the principal thoroughfare of the city On either side of this street to the end of the corporate limits are modern inviting homes The old citizens of Adair coun ty especially the Democrats remem ber Col Jim Chrisman who served in the Confederate Congress and who was a noted politician in Kentucky and a lawyer of great ability His home was in Monticello and the residence he occupied was a brick building located on Columbia Street The grounds are beautiful but the old dwelling is now being razed by the present owner of the property who will erect a hand some new residence in its stead While in Monticello I had the pleas ure of meeting nearly all the Attor neys and they were loud in their praise of Judge J F Montgomery who re cently held a special term of Circuit Court lasting five weeks in that place One of the oldest members of the bar and a very successful practitioner said to me You people ought to make an extraordinary effort to get Montgomery on the bench He has not many equals as a lawyer and he dis patches business He does not have to spend all his time looking up author ities He knows the law There are two banks in Monticello and both are doing good business The Monticello Banking Company is the oldest and its cashier is Mr W L Baker a former citezen of this place He informed me that his last statement showed if I remember correctly 260 000 and that there was a good demand for money The other bank has Judge Chas McConnaughy employed as its cashier 1 had the pleasure of meeting him and was told that his business was very satisfactory The merchants and other business men of the place are well pleased with the outlook for an in creasing trade the drygoods houses em ploying a number of salesmen The Cumberland Grocery Company wholesale located at Burnside has a Ii branch house at Monticello and it is do ing a very extensive business Geo W Brockman a former Adair county r boy R T Baker and J Marvi Vaughan all gentlemen wellknow here are members of the firm and they conduct the branch house This firm supplies the

which eclipsed anything in that line that I had ever heard before He said it was durin the war and the place was in a littl creek down in the Southland somewhere his regiment was stationed there at the time One day during their stay a number of the members of his company sup gusted that they go fishing all agreed and a seine 20 or 30 feet long was pre cured and they proceeded to a small stream near by they put in a few hundred yards above a sand bar and went down stream The relater said he wa in with the other boys and as drew nearer the landing place the seini got so heavy that it was difficult to move it and spotted bass began to jump oyer the top of the sein like crick ets over a toe string on the hearth for a moment the men were puzzled as to what means to use to keep the fist back and a plan was quickly decided upon a large barn was standing over in an old field a short distance from the bank of the creek and part of the men ran to the barn j e r ked a lot o f boards off the roof and hurried back to the ones holding the sein another move was made and when the fish began to jump over the sein they were batted back with aboard like a professional base ball play er would bat a ball and when they landed a two horse wagon load offish was dragged out with a 20 foot sein Whats thatOh no its the unadulterated truth and Capt Chew ning just laffed F McL The Mountain Oil

Democratic newspaper devoted to the interest of the city of Coluiia and tht people of Adai and adjacent counties Watered at the Columbia Poaloffice as secold class mail matter WED APRIL 24 1907 i Is there a man in Adair coun ty who believes that the road should be built and kept in order t by the laboring people Is there a man who will openly advocate the exemption of property from a just part of this burden Is there any one who believes that our public roads are good enough Who takes the positior that labor alone shall keep the roads in order while 250000f of property shall be freed from apart of this expense A system that forces this burden or the poor people and exempts the 5 property interests is unjust dis criminating and places the dollar above the man Instead ofthe strong protecting the weak this policy reverses and places the en tire burden on those least able to bear it and whose interests are less advanced It says to poor fellow you must work theI road 6 days every year or be fin 1edfor not doing it while to the property interests it holds out the invitation take thine ease and grow fat Today this sys i tern prevails in this county though it was not demanded by the County Judge not by the County Attorney not by the large taxpayers not by the r Commercial Club and not by any community of interests It finds its origin in the overthrow of a system of substantial road build ing by the majority part of the Fiscal Court If this policy is good and wholesome if it means e progress if it is just then those who work the roads ought to I togthrit and after the Summer sun has done its work when the Autumn rains have soaked the earth and the chilly breath of Winter is felt call a meeting of all inter F ested in roads indorse the Mag istrates and dismiss by singing Backward turn backward oh time in your flight In last weeks issue we made the announcement that Mr James Garnett of this city had been selected a member of the State Democratic Campaign Commitee to succeed Judge Rob ins Our information was ob tained from the city papers which evidently were not explicit enough as it was Hon James B Garnett of Trigg County At any rate the statement made about the efficiency of our towns man and the pleasure it gave us to indorse him for any important L position in the management of party interest is not regretted and while we were in error the same article will apply with equal force to the man selected Hon James B Garnett Mr Garnett of Columbia is a member of the State Central Committee and was selected last December as amem ber of the advisory branch of the State Campaign Committee As it is the active branch of the Committee has the worth of Jamesd v OF rln James Gar et1Hl tt kgit4 u is even better than we announce as the party will get the specii l interest of both There cannot be a doubt as to the worth of a pike from Co lumbia to Creelsboro It would open up a commercial avenue for the South side of this count where a large part of the Virgin forest still stands it would opei new markets for Columbia anc increase our commerce by reasoi of cheaper freight rates The Fiscal Court has subscribed fo r 5000 of stock in the road whet a company is formed to build it and in view of this subscription as a starter of the incalculable worth of the road to the county and especially to those living on or near it this proposition ough not to fail It appears that the people between the terrnina points ought to see the direc good to them and take the iniative step to make it succeed It will not only lift them out of the mud and give cheaper freigh but will add to the value of them farms and timber thousands of dollars If it is ever built nov is the time to begin the work Delays are dangerous A deal was closed

fine time for the people of Creelsborc to get busy is they want to build a substantial river town that will make them thousands of dollars in the advance of their farms and lots The road would be worth much to Columbia but Creelsboro would evidently get the lions share and the country between blossom like a rose The action of the Fiscal court in taking stock in a pike from Co lumbia to Creelsboro is heartily endorsed by all who believe i advancement There is not a doubt as to it being a valuable investment After the road is open for traffic a tremendous tonnage will pass over it both ways which would mean fine receipts for the gates If you cant build it now you cant build it later Every body wants it but it takes doers Get a move on if you are directly interested in the

Fiscal Court in offering to take a 5000 stock in the pro posed pike to Cumberland River is the most progressive step taken by that body in many yearsI The people are wonderfully elated over the action of the court and there is not a man of means in the vicinity of the proposed route who is not willing to invest liber ally in the enterprise With the local subscriptions and capital from abroad which is already seeking investment it is very evident that the financial part would be dead easy could we only find some person of ability who willing to head the enterprise We believe that interested
