Commercial Club Every member ought to be present The only real effort to advance the pub lic good has been a signal failure Many people in the county have been misinformed as to the real worthof such an organization and there are some within the limits of Columpia who have not been able to see the good that can be had by united effort It is a great mistake for any people to content c themselves with unpleasant and non progressive surroundings The Club if alive to the real good united on the one great proposition to better public conditions can have an influence that will accomplish much It is no time to weaken it is no time to disband The first effort the first failure should not discourage but fire the ambition to bring success Come at the tap of the bell SURVEY MADE 1 The survey for

r 2 THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS COLUMBIA KY MAY 1 1907 THE EARLY HISTORY OF MELVIN WHITE v By U L TaVlo- rCHAPTER VII Two things that Melvin had set his heart on was being a clerk in a store and keeping school He saw no chance for the former but he had a chance fo the latter The trustees of Zion School district had employed Melvin to teach their school The school was to begin the first Monday in July Melvin told them that he wanted a full code of laws and he would undertake to en force them He wanted a full set of thou shall nots and as to the tho shalts he would see to that himself The trustees held a meeting and ha Melvin come before them and give hi views in full and the consultation re sulted in the following code of laws Thou shalt not fight Thou shalt not wrestle Thou shalt not climb trees Thou shalt not throw rocks Thou shalt not sass one another Thou shalt not cuss Thou shalt not swear Thou shalt not use loud and boister ous language Thou shalt not throw snow balls Thou shalt not play marvels for keepsThou shalt not disobey the rules o the master These rules were written in a bold hand and posted in a prominent place on the wall where every boy in school could see them and Melvin awaited with longing anticipation for the open ing of the schoolthe time came The trustee were all present There was a full attendance Some had come to learn some had come to see the new teacher and some had come because their parents had sent them and had no special object in view A goodly num ber of the patrons had come to be at the opening and to see the rules that they had heard so much about The opening hour had arrived and Melvin had taken his positon at the proper place and called the school to order He thought it would be the prope- thing to make some appropriate remarks He was very much embarrassed but he cleared his throat and be gan Ladies and Gentlemen er er I mean boys and girls we have come here for the purpose of gaining an edu cationthe word educate is taken from the latin word ductus to draw out Now boys remember that you are to be the future fathers and mothers of this place Cook Jeffries what are you laughing about Why Frank Conover axt me which I had rather be a father or a mother 0 I did not mean to say that said Melvin very much embarass ed I only meant to say girls remem ber you are to be the future mothers and fathers of this place at this he subsided and proceeded to open the school The classes were arranged in due order and the visitors retired very much elated at the begining Things moved on smoothly for two or three days and nothing of interest took placeSoon there was however a misunder tanding sprang up between two of the biggest boys and without any quarrel or loud words one of them proceeded to spit in the others face The other could not fight him without violating the law but he forthwith informed the master as they called Melvin and he promptly brought him before the teacher to explain and to make amends The boy asked him under what law he proposed to try him Melvin responded under the code nailed to the wall The culprit replied he could see nothing in the code forbidding spitting in each others faces and the teacher was bound to let him go free The trustees were however immediately convened to 9 amend the code by inserting Thou shalt not spit in each others faces and and the school went on to its close in peaceThere was some trouble sprang up between his school and Rodulph Fitz patrick in which Melvin took a hand Rude passed along there one day dur ing recess and hollowed school but ter a remark which was considered highly insulting to any well regulated school The whole male portion of the pAool made immediate and pursuit The creek running hard by the school house was very full past fording There was a very tall foot log across the creek which Rude passed over and took a position at the other endarmed a with a ponderous club Two boys could not pass at once and one was afraid So the beligerants held the two sides of the stream and poured volley after volley of hot words at each other un til time for books when Melvin with drew his forces and Rude went on his way without further molestation In my next two letters which will close the series the most dangerous incidents that ever befel Melvin will be related- To Be Continued MISS PEARL HARPER DEAD A sad death in the Weed neighbor hood was

amusing story I have heard while on duty here was related a matt weeks News This incidennalso occured during the late war of the rebellion and it was concerning rations alloted his company for a days provisions The gentleman said that one morning while his command was stationed at a place a 110 side of bacon was dished out to them for their bill of fare for the day and according to the way measured the size of it the piece must have been 3 feet wide and 5 feet long and 7 inches thickwhich would have neccessitated it coming from a 1000 lb hog However the gentleman said it was so and of course I did not question his veracity But the most amusing part of the mat ter was that the men traded the 110 Ib side of meat for a gallon or two of huck elberrys He said the men had eaten so much bacon that they were sick and tired of it So an old woman come along with the huckelberries and they decid ed to make a deal prefering the berries to the bacon When 1 had gotten thus far I looked over in the other corner of the office and saw Capt Chewning just beghind a newspaper which he held up in front of him so as to be obscure from the view of the man that related the story who was seated at

Adair county mud is at times an unqualified quantity and as you have a beautiful and well arranged Court- House built at a great expense to the county 1 think that the Physical Court did a great thing in declaring that it shall be protected I infer Mr Editor from the tone of the News hat you are not in favor of the purposed wall I thinkthis opposition of yours comes from the act of your not having studied he subject sufficiently to see the benefit this wall will be to your townAllow me to call your attention j to a few advantages this wall will bring to the citizens of your beautiful and fast growing city First consider its beauty what would be more adorning than those great walls of masonry standing out in bold relief right in the center of your city with their summit playing playing Peekaboo with the sun by day and the stars by night know ing that behind them stand blind justice with her balances And if you des ire you could plant at this base sOJ1leI bushel beans and morning glorie and you will soon have beautiful vine clad walls Then again by shutting out public gaze the entire court house can be turned into one gigantic Blind Tiger now please consider this before any farther objection It will be so nice to pen all the tigers in town behind those beautiful vine clad walls and then it will be so much more convenient see Again those walls are such delightful rat harbors they would soon fill every cellar in your town of those pests for they love to burrow under stone walls Again there is not a town in Ky that could boast of better bill boards every circus on the road and shows of all kinds would come to Columbia and furnish passes for the whole town for the privilege of putting bills on those walls just think of those beautiful pictures right where you can look out of your own window and see them with out going out in the mud Again Continued on Page 6 DIRECTORY 0 POST OFFICE JN COFFEY POSTMASTER Office hours week days 730 L m to p m COURT CIRCUIT

BYTHE Adair County News Company INCORPORATED CHAS S HARRIS EDITOR Democratic newspaper devoted to the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter I WED MAY 1 1907 ill Why is it that leading Republicans will continue to demand that President Roosevelt again become their nominee for President after he has announced from time to time that he will not accept it cannot be explained in any other way than their devotion to the man and fo what he advocates unless it be that they represent the Republican inns and are unwilling to take a chance with some other anyrtp precedents infatuated with the individuality of the him President and willing for to rule unrestrained ToI ourtmind his renomination and particularly his reelection would be establishing a dangerous prec tend though his future administration should prove to be good and wholesome If the Republican party strong as it is should re elect Mr Roosevelt it would establish unlimited tenure in office It would mean that the same powers ands influences would again demand his services o that he would seek a fourth election and on and on Mr Roosevelt isthe idol of his party bu idols are dangerous and never before has any party set one up The truth is that he is the only pebble on thellbeachstruck a popular strain by ignoring the pla form onwhich he was elected and strenuously pressing Democratic teaching While he isI the most available man as view ed by many Republicans yet if nominated it is more than IikblY that he would be defeated anpl in justice to the future fJour country should be even if M stood for every reform needed and demanded by the people Mr Roosevelt has held the reins long enough a Mr S F White who has been connected with the News for moore than a year and who has been doing splendid work in making its local columns inter esting to its many readers for the last six months tendered his resignation and accepted the position of deputy postmaster in the Columbia office Mr White filled his position with the News in a most satisfactory manner and we do not have a doubt that he will measure up to the full requirements of his new position giving entire satisfaction to thefmany patrons of the While we regret to lose his serv ices and interest in the welfare of the News yet we heartily endorse his promotion Mr White IS a Republican and has always manifested a keen interest in the welfare of his party and his promotion is but a just recogni tion of his services and his abil ity to occupy a responsible and 0profitable position in the service of ppp Federal Government t 4Mr and Mrs G V 4 Wrilere tHeir resignation m the L N OMctalsfafter a service it t i q of more than 20 years in the Campbellsville depot as agents for the company Their retire ment is gratifying to many of their friends in this part of the country who have never truly appreciated the rigid business methods that characterized their agency That they hays been faithful to every trust with their company cannot be questioned that they asked no concessions nor gave none to the patrons of that depot is also a fact They were strictly business and that method failed to be the popular one with many in this part of the country and received many growls and criticisms Now it is up to their successor to hew to the line and receive grumbles and censures or to show that painstaking effort that attracts and brings good will and pleas ant dealing Heres hoping that Campbellsville depot will contain more of the agreeable features of ordinary business meth- r ods It affords us pleasure to an nounce the fact that Mr Clau Montgomery has been appoint ed to active duties in the Colum bia Postoffice For the last year he has been an efficient clerk in the general store of Frank Sinclair and his promotion comes as good news to his many friends and especially to the Democrats Mr Montgomery is a worthy decendent of one of the strbng Democratic families of the county and is himself a staunch Democrat His appoint mint seems to be in keeping with the present administra tiongood qualifications regard

Again J T Graves of Atlanta speaks out This time heC points out Bryan and Roosevelt as the two greatest men in the world He predicts that a word from either of them would make president out of the

Dr Flavius Josephus Taylor died at his home on corner of Main and Broadway Sunday morning at eleven oclock after an illness of several weeks at the age of seventy years Dr Taylor was first taken with grippe and afterward suffered a slight stroke of paralysis from which he never recovered He is survived by his wife and five children Postmaster J F Taylor assistant postmaster F A Taylor Dr W C Taylor Miss Clara Taylor and Miss Nel lie Taylor all of this place Also by three brothers and one sister Mr P W Taylor of Greenwood Ind Dr Zack Taylor of Mounds I T Dr Sam A Taylor of Gra dyville Ky and Mary A Montgomery of Ozark Ky At the time of his death Dr Taylor was secretary of the County Board of Health vice president of the Barren County Medical Society and secretary of the local Board of Pension Examiners He was fomerly a cityI councilman and county physician For a number of years he was editor of this paper being suc ceeded by the present manag menteHe was born andraisedI in Adair county but at the be ginning of the Civil War enlisted as a private in the 13th Kentucky Infantry was soon promoted to Assistant Regimental Surgeon and later became the head Sur geon of the regiment He served to the close of the war and located in Hart county where he prac ticed medicine for many years coming here in 1890 While liv ing in Hart county he was marred to his relative Miss Fannie J Taylor who proved an ideal companion and who survives himHe was a deacon in the Christ ian church at this place and no member of the congrega ion was held in higher estimation than he He enjoyed the confidence of the people of the county to the very highest degree No man stood higher No sufferer was so poor or lowly that he was turnedaway by Dr Taylor and many are the heartaches at the news of his death It might be said that he was the dean of the medical profession in the County To many of whom he seemed al most a father Funeral services were held at the Christian church Monday at one oclock by Elder J E Payne in the presence of a host of sym pathizing friends which taxed the capacity of the building The active pall bearers were Judge- D R Carr Col J C Evans and Mr L W Gee who wore

regret I felt at the turning down of th good roads proposition presente- by the Commercial Club to th Fiscal Court Where are we goingWhat will be our condition in the fu ture years Are we still going to run along in the same old way in all these good times or are we going to launch out on something new that will not only be a blessing and comfort to us but will be a benefit for all the coming years- I have read the proposition of the Club and scrutinized it care fully and if there is a flaw any where it failed to show itself- I cant believe that the mem bers of the court represented a majority of the people of this county in turning a deaf ear to the appeals of the Commercial Club The Club shows clearly that it is for advancement and has labored to that end Be not discouraged but press onward having the vanguard of hope- I have had much to do with macademizedroads in the past three years It is the kind of road which the United States Government has built on the reservation at Ft Hancock N J There is nothing for a foun dation but sand and I have not seen a single instance where the road shrank the least Afterbeing constructed for a number of years I saw a thirty ton roller pass over it without the slightest apparent injury- It is a time now for action Columbia has her fame for her educational advantages and also Adair county but if we still travel along as we are or rath er in retrogression what will be our condition 20 years hence I think Pulaski has taken a good start and heartily recommend a like prescription for Dear Old Columbia If we cant get our present Fiscal Court to act we must elect somebody two years hence that will act and carry in to effect the interest of the peo ple Let the Old Fogy who wants to live in a mud hole find a soft place in the never changing past- I am in favor of eachvoting precinct having one or more Good Roads Club organized and do all in our power to have our Justice vote for something that will give us more comfort and less mud I am sure that a ma jority of White Oak are in favor of progression We are willing to render any assistance possible- If the court could be given a view of some country where they have good roads and then return to the dear Old Kentucky Home to travel upon some of our good enough roads their vote would be unanimous in favor of the good roads proposi tion BEECHER W PIERCE For a cold or a

he bought in 1906 which cost him 2000 and says he has been offered 3000 and 4000Land in general is very high and it is thought by many people that it will not be higher soon Our nearest railroad station is Eldorado about 35 miles dis tanceI recently visited some friends near Altus Oklahoma Mr Benjamin Wooldridg and family had a nice time The baseball boys of the west have organized for the season with the intention of playing a better game than ever before We had a farmers union meet ing in this vicinity Saturday attended by a large crowd all seemed to have enjoyed them selves well The wind has been blowing very hard for the last few days raising sand last Thursday caus ing a sand storm The people of Oklahoma and Texas were greatly excited when the news came from England that there was to be a comet fall and burn up the earth on the 30th of last month but the scare seems to be all over now Thanking you for space in your paper F C SMITH all the local merchants need just such a place on which to hang their posters and thus advertise their goods and save you the trouble of putting them in your paper And the inclosure would make such a nice dumping ground for tin cans bottles and other such rubbish so convenient you see Now Mr Editor consider these and many other advantages those walls will give to your town and I think you will say by all means let us have the walls for when you consider the cost of building you will find them much cheaper and of much more bene fit than the building of those good roads you seem to advocate for the roads will get good of themselves if you will wait till July and August and why waste money in building roads when they will dry out after awhile and besides you must not forget that those roads leading into Co lumbia were good enough for our fathers Yea our grandfath ers and they never howled about a little mud and this generation is no better than they were andI ydu go right on and build those walls and dont bother about the roads the walls will attract the people and they will get to town some way to take a look at themISo waste no money on muddy roads but put it where it will do good and at the same time orna ment your town by making it a walled city In conclusion I suggest that Commercial Club sit at they feet of your Fiscal Court ond economicsdJOHN S CRANDALL I I FRANK CORCORAN o 4 4 HIGHGRADE MARBLE AND GRANITE 4
