afternoon one of the most interesting games of base ball ever played on the grounds of the LindsayWilson was pulled off between the married men and those who have not yet taken that solemn vow but composed largely of eligibles for thg bond of union The score stood eleven to eight in favor of the youngsters too small a margin to be considered a sweeping victory or discouraging to the slugers of years gone by A large crowd was present and all seemed to enjoy the game and it was the more enjoyable on account of the good will and courtesies that were manifested throughout the contest Fred Hancock umpired and no con tentions or discords arose over his decisions There were several of the married men who showed that they were not only hasbeens but are still able to measure up to their best days of single blessedness when it comes to playing ball but several gave evidence of being a leetle too stiff in the jints so to speak and consequently lost in scoring At any rate the first effort has not discouraged the old timers and another game will be played in theI near future TOM DUDLEY KILLED Last Sunday afternoon about 5 oclock Will Ed Jones shot and killedc Tom Dudley near Bliss about 4 miles west of Columbia From what we can hear the facts are as follows Dudley in company with his wife and daughter the latter being Jones wife were passing the road when Jones stepped out and stated you have my wife and fired the fatal shot Some trouble had occured between Jones and his wife a few days before so It is re ported and word sent to her father to come after her It was on this mission that Dudley lost his life Jones was arrested on Sunday evening and placed in jail Jim and Jo Henry McEellary tiwere arrested Monday and put in jail accused as being parties to the killing Dudley was horse back while the wo men were in a buggy The weapon used was a shot gun which had been purchased by Jones in Columbia last Saturday The shot took effect In Dudleys breast and he only lived about 30 minutes afterwards All the parties are colored THE GOOD OLD DAYS RETURNED Since the completion of the bridge over Green river on the Campbellsville pike the same old close and cordial re lations between the two towns show up in the same good old waythe mixing and mingling of their people Scarcely a day passes that fails to show the twp towns have an Interest in each other On the first day of May our genial friend Mr George Gowdy was shaking hands with his friends in this city and it was I a pleasre to meet him as it had been quite awhile since his last visit While the bridge was out we all sorely missed Mr A H Marshall the gentleman who prepares us for light but since its erection his weekly trips are as regular as of days gone by He commands a good trade here and we are always glad to see him at this end of the line There are many others whose visits and business relations have returned with the completion of the bridge W R Lyon however is one if not the only exception Bridge or no bridge mud rain snow nor no other obstruction kept him out Columbia and Adair Conunty He was as regular as an eight day clock and never needed winding His many friends are gladc to see him A GOOD WORK The Baptists of Campbellsville are doing a splendid work in their effort to build and provide every needed facility for the successful opening of the school under the management of the Ru Creek AS dciation Already thefscool building is nearing a comple tion and it is said to be one of the 4 1 t most convenient and imposing educational structures in Southern Kentucky Work on the large brick dormitory is now in progress and will be pushed on as as possible At present the committee has not succeeded in secur ing sufficient money to complete this building and leave it free from debt but itsmembers are alive to the situation and steadily adding to the fund The truth is that every Baptist in this Association ought to contribute It is not merely an enterprise for Camp bellsville but for the pressing needs of the Association and Southern Kentucky in general While that thrifty little city will be directly benefited yet the people of Campbellsville regardless ofI denominational views are bearing the bulk of the expense The closing of every proposition is the most critical moment and since the committee lacks from 2000 to 3000 the Baptists throughout this country ought to be glad to help The school should start free from debt It will be better for all parties but this cannot be done unless the people give Send in your subscription to the committee if you feel like giving SETTLED BY ARBITRATION The suit for a division of the farm upon which Mr H J Henson resides lying on Green river this county was settled by arbitration fast Friday the Board

the three Hensons named to purchase the farm and twelve notes were given for same Mrs Henson John C Truman and H J Henson signing the notes It was in evidence that the business was conducted as a firm and when a division was inadef that Mrs Henson was to receive one halfand John C and Truman one fourth each This partnership was con tinued but at the end of the third year Truman became dissatisfied and went West Upon his return he asked for a division but John claimed that he had forfeited his interest and a suit was brought for a settlement Soon after the suit was filed friends took a hand and the parties agreedthat the trouble might go before a Board of Arbitrators all signing an instrument of writing agreeing to abide by the decision The arbitrators were H R Turner Camp bellsville R H Turner Hatcher N M Tutt Columbia Mr Coppack Hatcher and J A Diddle Gradyville John C Henson was represented by Montgomery Montgomery and C W Wright Mrs H J Henson by W W Jones and James Garnett and

neighbor by the name of C B Taylor He was a special friend of Melvins father and the two families had been on the most inti mate terms for a long time Melvin and Charleys Jim were about the same age and very great cronies Melvin was a frequent visitor at Mr Taylors house and became a favorite with all the family Charley and Melvin agreed on everything except politics They were both Methodists but they could not agree on politics They occupied different sides on every political move ment In a discussion one day as to the effect that the Wilmot Proviso would have had on the Monroe Doc trine if the Proviso had been passed They took diametrically opposite grounds Charley contended that it would have been beneficial while Mel vin contended for the reverse The argu unItilgenerally do they did not stop to con sider that the Wilmot Proviso had been defeated in Congress and that David Wilmot the author of the proviso was dead and it was long before the war and as it had reference to slavery in which neither of the belligerants had any interest whatever they prepared for battle Charley finally ordered Melvin from his premises and while the youthful combatant was not afraid he had great respect for Mr Taylors age He started to leave After he had got outside the yard Mrs Taylor came out of the house and told her husband that it was a shame for two such intimate friends to fall out over nothing and to call Melvin back and fix the thing up Charley reflected a mo ment and as he was not a man to har bor malice called to Melvin and said Melvin according to your last ex planation I am satisfied to let the mat ter drop and just come back and let us shake hands and be friendly took him at his word happy in th thought of a reconciliation and met Mr Taylor and each handed the other his left hand while he firmly grasped hsI shilalah in his right Now Melvin said clearly while they shook hands I wan it distinctly understood I am not doin this because 1 am afraid of you th same over here said Melvin and they dropped their weepins and the un pleasantness was over Melvin spent the night there and many jokes were cracked by both that evening But Melvins next escapade did not end so pleasantly He applied for the school at the gnat holler school house and the trustees promised it to him He accordingly drew up a con tract and had it signed by two of the trustees In the mean time Mr Rich ard Lee Johnson had been employed to teach the same school two of the trus tees having signed his contract one of them having signed both The two would be teachers had for some time been mortal enemies and each one was as brave as Julius Cesar Before the day for the beginning of the school each one had learned of the situation and both men were expecting trouble The day arrived and both teachers were on hand with a goodly number of adherents in the way of scholars The teachers had but little to say to each other The house had but one door a broad one and the teachers drew a chalk line from the middle of the door in front rearrThe pedagogues would not cross this line and the pupils were not allowed to cross and thus in this smallroom were two distinct schools as much so as if they had been miles apart The Scholars were given their choice and it so happened that Lee had the largest number and as children preferred the larger school desertions were common from Melvin to Lee until after a few days to prevent a clash and bloodshed Melvin withdrew his forces and set up in a separate house about a quater of a mile from the school house and after teaching there for a few days he aban doned the enterprise and went over into Taylor county and procured a school which he taught through to success While there he wrote a letter to tellinghimtaken the advice of all his dear friends A part of this will be in the next number To Be Continued IN MEMORY OF DR JL STAPP eoqI Tis under as heavy a cloud of sorrow seemingly as could oversprea d human ity nth gpef stripken heart and tear dwied eyes that we try to write thif r4t J1j I4 I in memory of our loved one just gone The sad sad intelligence reaches us of the death of our precious father and it came in the power of a death blow to- usin that dark hour just the strong arm of Jesus was sufficient to lean on cornWas it not for the thought that we can go and live with him in a better world than this how could we bear it It seemed hard that he must die with the vast distance between him and his children he loved and that loved him so much But thank God this is only the dark side of the picture and when we turn to the other side we can but say our grief is folly He heeded not our tears of anguish Heaven had claimed its own and he has gone to the reward that awaits him there for many kindnesses and the good work done while here He was an indulgent father good husband and ever ready to render as sistance to his neighbor or friend in time of need and many a sleepless hour has he spent on the public high way with only his saddle horse for his companion speeding his way to the couch of a sufferer But God saw that he had done enough and said labor no more in the earthly vinyard but come to a broader field He must have had visions of rapture whispered to him from be yon enableing him to look away from earth across the troubled waters toa higher plain and to a home more sub lime It was impossible on the short notice for us to reach him before death had claimed himtBut to the heart broken ones at home and other places let me say while we are separated and some of us may never meet again let us live so that when the summon comes for us we may be able to assemble at the throne and meet dear father mother and other lovedones where there will be no more parting or sad good byes Farewell Dearest Father Thou hast left us And thy Precious forms entomed But thy dear memory will be cheerished Till the Great Father calls us child daughtere QQQQQQ COLUMBIA FAIR AUGUST 20 FOUR DAYS At A Meeting of the Columbia Fair Association last Wednesday thefollow ing gentlemen were elected Directors W L Grady Robert Young James Garnett R F Paull R L Smythe J H Young Allen Walker and C S Harris Allen Walker was elected President R L Smythe Vice Pres ident and C S Harris Secretary The date for the Fair is August the 20th4 daysIt is the purpose of those in charge this year to make many improvements on the grounds to remoddle nearly ev ery building and to provide all the con veniences possible for the accommoda tion of exhibitors and spectators The catalogue will be arranged in the near- future and while it will contain many of the old features yet it will have quite a number of new premiums More attention will be given agricultural products all kinds of fowls ladies work flowers and domestic manufactured articles of evry description It is the intention to erect a neat building for this purpose and to make one of the most attractive exhibits ever seen- at a country fair All agricultural art icles and all articles exhibited by the ladies will be received on the first day of the fair as usual but will be kept on exhibition until the 4th day The Association will also provide for keep ing sheep hogs and cattle This will be a departure that will enable every visitor to see the premium stock and will stimulate exhibitors as well The truth is that too little attention has been given the products of our home people Nearly all the premiums have been offered for horses and the blue ribbon kind are not found on the farms In view of the great change to be in troduced this year that will offer a nice premium from a Bantum chicken to a German Coach horse from the most delicate needle work to the mas sive heavy weight counterpane from the tiny flower to the big red rose and all the articles of fine cooking It is hoped that renewed interest will manifest its self and prove the venture profitable to all Remember the date August 2021 2223 PROGRAMe I the Columbia District Convention

Board of TraH is undertaking to show to the people of this State the great goodof a fair square deal with transportation companies now operating in the State and to point out the inestimable value oi encouraging new lines of road whether built by existing companies or by new ones Inthe face of existing stringent legislation in other States against railroads the Board of Trade believes thai Kentucky now has an opportuni ty by fair and encouraging legis lation to secure unprecedented activity in railroad building and the development of our varied re k sources in every part of the t State One of the inducements faVored is a ten year exemption from taxation State county and municipal of all new railroad milsga built in the State either by existing companies or by oth er companies or individuals desir ing to come into the State It appears to us that it is a great time for cool deliberate action While it can be shown that jus tice would not release any new in- dustrY or enterprise from tax whether built and operated by an individual or a corporation yet it has been the policy of many j thrifty municipalities to offer r such inducements So far as our knowledge of such things go we J can not say whether such a move as above outlined ever had such broad latitude but it appears toI us that such a move would re suIt in great good and within a few years the people and the State would be paid back many times in the great development that would follow We believe it the time for Kentucky not only to be wise but just to her own interests and to take an advance step to develop her great resources This cannot be done without the building of more roads and too exacting or hostile legislation will not result in se curing new roads The nomination of Governor Hughes of New York by the next National Republican con vention is predicted by Mr Watterson Hughes seems to be hewing to the line and whether he becomes the nominee or not he is an official that is attracting attention and growing into the confidence of the people While at present the people are watch ing the movements of Taft Fair banks and Forraker yet they may disappear from the list of probabilities and Governor

Fiscal Court condemning the ac tion of that court for not levying a sufficient amount of tax on the people of Adair county for the betterment of roads Yes they say a majority of that court re fused to vote a tax on the wealthy citizens of the county who were anxious to be taxed for the build ing of roads And they further say that the court failed to ap propiate anything for the benefit of roads and they also try to arouse the prejudices of the la poring classes against the court because the law requires them to work the roads six days each year and lastly they undertake to burlesque the court by saying that they proposed to build a wall around the court house at the ex pense of the county Now when we come to consider the last ac cusation it is about in keeping with all their other statements for the court knew in the first place that the majority of wealthy people in this county have their surplus money invest ed in government bonds and consequently could not be taxed in proportion to their real wealth as others who have not a suffi ciency of means to invest in that way and after ascertaining the amount of surplus in the county treasury for the benefit of county roads the court doubtless come to the conclusion that it was suf ficient for the present and that it mattered not how much they voted on the people to build roads it would not abolish the law requiring all men between the ages of eighteen and fortyfive to work tIthe roads six days in each year when the court come to consider the question of building the wall around the court house they found it was up and com pleted and behold when they come to investigate the matter the Commercial Club had laid the foundation before the court R convened and completed it when they presented the proposition to have the court levy a tax on the county stfficient to lay four pike roads in four diffirent directions for a distance of two miles from Columbia and complete them in 1907 and strengthened it as they supposed by the proposi tion to allow them to begin a pike anywhere they wanted to in the rcounty provided the people along the route would help by paying three hundred dollars per mile in addition to their proportional part of the tax and provided fur ther that the rock that should be used to grade the road thus built should be crushed to a uni form size so as to exactly go through a certain ring The fact is the Commercial Club and their adherents have built the wall so high and so strong that they cant climb over it and persuade the majority of that court to vote a tax on this county for the special benefit of bond holders and corporations and when the Club goes to pull down the wall they have erected over the heads of that court spirits will arise from within that will inspire the laborers and tax payers of this county with the same sentiment that actuated the poet when he added the cho rus to his song saying Ill be here Yes Ill be there I can only call to mind the names of three of the magistrates of this county dut I know from their action in the court before mentioned that they are men of honest convictions and have the t courage jtpfstand by them and tiw i Jj t rfI fN1t it I that they have convinced the people of the county that they will protect their interests and see that their finances are not recklessly squandered- If we send a representative from this county and Cumber berland this year to the legisla ture I believe it should be some of the members of our Fiscal Court who we know are not con taminated with the idea that where you lead I will follow but have the manliness to express their convictions and the courage and force of character to standby them M Taylor When your food has not been properl- digested the entire system is impaire- in the

space in your valuabl- sheet I will give you a few items in regard to the new state The weather here has been very disagreeable since Easter it having been uncommonly cold We have what the citizens call northers which blow up so sud denly that I know no better way to give you an idea of their sud denness except to quote from an old mover I saw recently He said I had stopped for the night had started my fire and my coffee was boiling nicely when one of these northers came up so sudden and with suchse verity that the coffee on the north side of the pot was frozen while that on the south side continued to boil nicely Such has been the weather since Easter until today Farmers have been de layed greatly by such conditions Most all of them in this part of the country are done planting cotton but they report a very bad stand Corn has been plow ed once but it is looking yellow and sorry Since I have been in Indian Territory I have been employed in a government school at this place Healdton is located about 25 miles from Ardmore the me tropolis of Indian Territory It is one of the oldest towns in the Chickasaw nation Ardmore is a growing town being a railroad center and also surrounded by a rich farming countryIt that Kentucky has contributed her share of the pop ulation of Indian Territory I am glad to say that Kentuckians here are not unknown either The most prominent men we have are Kentuckians Of these I may mention the Bledsoes from Cumberlandcounty Tom Rex roat from Russell county The Skipworths and Kendalls from Cumberland county H H Brown one of the leading law yers of Ardmore from Morgan county Chas Evans Supt of Ardmore City Schools Prof Canterburg principal of Ard more High School and Hon Lee Cruce who is almost sure to be the first Governor of the new stateIt would be in order I think to state here that politics is the chief industry in the new state at present I have never seen half so many candidates in all the elections I have experienced put together as there are here now Eveisr office of course from 1t rT n Constable and Justice of Peace to Government and Congressmen must be filled and the aspirants for each particular place are not few Of course the warmest part is among the Democrats whose primary will be held June 8th As I have already stated how Lee Cruce from Kentucky is the leading candidate for Governor He has one or two opponents but they are so far behind that they need not be in the race Frantz the present Governor of Oklahoma is the Republican op ponent and Ross the socialist candidate candahDemocratic landslide in the elec tion for delegates to the Consti tutional Convention Out of 112 delegates the Democrats elected 99 Oklahoma has or will have if Mr Roosevelt does not turn it down a Democratic Constitu tion The people of Oklahoma and Indian Territory were cer tainly tired of the Republican rule of graft and greed as was shown in the election The Republicans did all in their power to defeat the Democrats bye ready possessed They shoe stringed the districts but failed to get their delegates They are now doing all they can to keep the people from ratifying the Constitution The last Congress failed to remove the restrictions from Indian lands thinking that by so doing the people would not want state hood as there would be no taxable real estate The Indians own all the land conse quently

fierce conflicts upon the waters of Hampton Roads but the fire of belch ing cannon and hissing bursting shell the deadly combat between the Moni tor and the Merrimac in 1862 was nothing compared with the scene en acted on these historic waters on the night of April 26th 1907 The burning of Rome the destruction of the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were no doubt grand but they were also terri ble The scene upon Hampton Roads was grand beyond the power of pen toI describe while it was absolutely de void of the terrible Placidly lying at anchor on Hampton Road when the sun went down on the evening of the 26th of April were American and foreign war vessels in solid but friendly phalanx covering a distance of not less than ten miles As darkness settled over the face of the waters a few lights flickered here and there subdued by the silvery moon beams that fell like a shenn upon the land and sea The great army of death dealing ironclad monsters were dimly out lined until at a given signal about 730 every ship blazed forth in lines of electric fire Tit was so sudden and so grand that the silence of the thousands upon the waters and shores attested an admiration too deep to be expressed in word or sound There they lay every outline of hull and bridge and deck and funnel and stock lined in living fire Nothing like it has ever been seen before and out side of the Jamestown TerCentennial Expedition will prabably never be seen again With the in the har bor a blaze of glory andthe buildings ashore scarcely less gorgeous the en tire scene was one so grand so unique ly splendid that those who saw it will never forget It was a feature alone and unparalleled in the history of ex positions and in the history of the worldThe illumination of shore and harbor and vessels by an element that the wildest scientific dreamer had not con ceived when the event occurred that the Ter Centennial Exposition cele brates is one incident alone that de monstrates the giant strides that haveJ been made since the pilgrims landed up on Americas shores The searchlights of the various war vessels time and again shot outtheir i 4r Geronimo I Black jack white points about 15 hands
