Council Agreed Upon Last Thursday Night The Council passed an ordinance at its last regular meeting on Thursday night that a uniform concrete walk should be made in front of all property on the public square For many months this has been considered but now it is the law As we understand ir four months time will be given in which this must be done So far as we have heard every person is willing to obey and within the time given the walk will be made The Council has under consideration the making of a walk along the edge of the cemetery on the Campbellsville pike In justice to that part of town this should be done The walk would also add to the appearance of the cemetery More than likely at the next meeting of the Council an or der will be made for the building of side walks on several of the streets leading out from the public square There will be something done in Colum bia this yearT- EMPERANCE RALLYGOOD SPEECHES AND MUSIC Last Thursday the Columbia Band made its first effort to cheer the cause of temperance by furnishing some stirring music for the temper ance rally in Edmonton Eld Z T Williams and Gov J R Hindman of Columbia were both there and made speecher that showed their zeal and earnestness for pro h i bition There were other speakers and one in partic ular we are told that measured the depth of horror caused by the sale and use of whiskey and whose logic was almost overwhelming It was a great meeting and intense earnestness was manifested but all seemed to enjoy the day The band bovs were delighted with the treatment they received and overjoyed at the reports made in favor of prohibition at that time JACOB MILLER DEAD The death of Mr Jacob Miller at his home near Calumbia last Tuesday the 15th removed one of our honest upright citizens For several months Mr Miller had been in feeble health Mr Miller came from Russell count a few years ago and bought a farm three miles west of Columbia on the Glasgow road By his industry and uprightness of living he soon had the confidence and esteem of the people who knew him Mr Miller was a Un ion soldier but regardless of the way he fought he held to his original polit ical views being a strong believer in Democratic principles To his wife and children who survive The News ex tends sympathy believing as above stated that a good upright honest citizens has been laid to rest CAT MOTHERING MINKSUNCOM MON BUT TRUE Last week some one in the country killed an old mink and brought two of the young ones to town They fell into the hands of Mr George Rosenfield who took them home and gave them to his cat Instead of devouring them she took one at a time and carried them to the box where her kittens were and imme diately adopted them She is taking the same care of the little minks as she gives to her two kittens When they were receiyed their eyes had not opened but now they see and romp and fare on equal terms with the young felines COLUMBIA SINGLETREE COMPANY IS PUSHING BUSINESS The Columbia Singletree Companys plant in this city has more material on its yards and is turning out more work we are informed than at any other time in the history of the business Since the improvement in the public roads due to sunshine alone material has been coming in every day from dif ferent sections of the county The force of men employed by the company 1ereare well on to the business and every department of the work is pushed with vigor It is one of the industries of Columbia that is wor Kmuch to the county and we are glad to see it in such prosperous condition ah fso effi ciently manned and managed While the deep mud has disappeard yet the rough and rugged highways are not in good condition The ruts and chug holes still remain and make disa greeable all kinds of travel Messrs Simms and Hall informs us that immediately after they complete their contract at Russell Springs that they will burn a large number of brick in Columbia preparatory for some good buildings to be built here next year In last weeks issue we stated that S R Smythe had sold a horse for 200 and bought one for 300 It should have been R L Smythe Mr Smythe is a o Per of fine horses and he never sells a good one without trying to buy a better one Doubtless his last purchase will be trained and exhibited at the fair Mrs Laura Powell and family who left Columbia a short time ago for the west have selected San Angelo Texas for a home Mr and Mrs Ras Strange of Indian Territory have also removtd to the above place San Angelo is in the western part of the state a city of 10000 people and situated in the health giving atmosphere of the plains Mr Robert Hudson has made a walk in front of his property that will keep pedestrians out of the mud and yet he is out but little expense It is made of crumbled brick placed level with the surface and filling a trench six inches deep and three feet wide Why not others in that part oftownI do likewise Lightning struck the residence of Mr T A Murrel of this City last Sunday evening about 930 while a light electrical storm was on The building was struck on the South side knocked out a good sized hole in the side and some plastering in one room No one was in that room at the time and nothing damaged except as above reported Mr P C Watson of Oberlin Kan sas was in Columbia last Friday Mr Watson left the Cane Valley sec tion three years ago and this is his first visit to the old home Like many other good Kentuckians he stillove the old State but cannot be contented with the slow business methods that prevail and has therefore become a WesternerOne last week while Mr W T McFarland was watering the horse he had been working another animal came up and the horse threw his head around striking Mr McFarland with so much force that he was knocked to the ground in an unconcious condition He was carried to the house and soon re vived While it was a severe shock yet he was soon able to proceed as usual The entertainment styled Tom Thumb Wedding given in the Court House last Wednesday evening was well attended the court room being filled The receipts were up to ex pectationsand the ladies who assumed the responsibilities are well pleased The programme was carried out in a most entertaining manner and the many who attended were delighted Last Friday afternoon the Campbells ville base ball team played a tie game at Columbia the score standing 6 and 6 We believe our boys can easily defeat the Columbia club should they come here The rain prevented a continu ance of the game The boys all claim it was a pretty game and one they could have won had the elements per mittedTaylor County Inquirer Not for your life brother The Columbia team has passed the stage of kidhood in ball playing The Standard Hardwood Lumber Company has been one of the active plants in this section for the st few weeks In a little less than five weeks work over 300000 feet of lumber has been sawed and the saw now rests for a few days while some repairs will be made and a good supply af logs placed on the yard The bad condition of the roads has prevented the Company from keeping logs sufficient to keep the mill going but within a few weeks the hum of the saw will again be heard and the mill kept going all the while VICTORY FOR COLUMBIA t Marydale Nine Overmatched and Outplayed AJ It was announced last week in The News that The Marydale Base ball team of Louisville would play the Columbia team on last Friday and Sat urday on the grounds of The Lindsay Wilson According to that announce ment the games were played and in each instance a victory for our home boysThe result as given below was not so much the fruit of the inability of the visiting team as the hard earned and justly merited reward of the good play ing done by the Columbians Never has Columbia had a nine that could measure up with the ones who now play Every man to his post and every one do his best is the motto andwith the skill durability and cool deliberate determination to win it will take a better team than has been on the grounds for a long time to turn the tide The fact is that every man nows his work and is capable of doing it almost toperfectionIt to state that Ewing Stults is proving his ability to pitch a ball that baffles the best batters and The Vlarydale crowd could hardly ever touch them It is our opinion that he will prove one of the great pitchers of the country Below we give the result of the two games FRIDAYS GAME Tnnings1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9T- Columbia1 5r 0 0 0 3 1 0 313 Louisville 00000010 01 COLUMBIA Errors Winfrey Hind man

BACCALAUREATESERMON One Of The Most Appropriate Dis courses Ever Delivered in Columbia INTELLECTUAL fEAS l FOR STUDENTS I term it fortunate indeed to have had the opportunity of listening to such an excellent sermon as the one deliver ed by the Rev A R Kasey at the Methodist church last Sunday forenoon It was the commencement sermon of th Lindsay Wilson Training School and was especially appropriate to the occa sion and suited to the minds 6f the large number of students present The subject chosen for a text by Rev Kasey as the basis of his remarks was What is man that God should be mind ful of him according to the scriptures man is little lower than the angels as r the revised version has it little lower than God The speaker brought put many beautiful instances jJwhere God kr has and does care for his childrenwith- even a greater love than the earthly parent cares for his child He made all his points clear and distinct and was the master of his subject from every point of view Such sermons should indeed be an inspiration to young peo ple who will soon go out into the world to battle with the ups and downs in life and to have such true and whole some doctrine administered unto them should be regarded as a golden oppor tunityI seen congregations assembled for worship in many places but never a more appriciative or refined looking audience than the one spoken of It almost seemed like a dream in Fairland and it appeared like a large portion of the congregation were sweet girl grad uates There is no doubt in my mind but what the young people who have been in school here during the term just closed have received instruction per taining to their own spiritual and moral welfare which will be remembered and prized by them all the days of their ex istenceThey have all had the pleasure of hearing Rev Kasey a number of times during their stay in Columbia and judg ing from the fact that he has the inter est of the student at heart a majority of them have certainly been greatly bene fited by coming in contact with him The solo by Rev Kasey on Sunday morning was indicative of strong vocal powers and mastery of the art of voice culture and the vocal solo by Mr Pen land and Miss Penland was sweet and distin t the ming ing of the two voices producing a perfect melody F McL BUILDINGS TO BE II ERECTED Simms and Hall of Columbia Were Successful Bidders = Work to Be Finished in October Last week Messrs Simms and Hall of this city contracted to do the brick work for the Russell Springs Banking Company D Wilson and Son and F L Wilson all of

merchandise The work is to be completed by the first of October 1907 When this block of business houses are erected it will add materially to the business ap pearance of that thrifty little city and will lead to other similar structures Already others have under consideration similar buildings and it is highly prob able that the above contractors will contract for one or more good buildings

Hunter were united in marriage Rev Mr Claycomb offici ating This event came as a surprise to many of their friends as no an nouncements had been made The wedding was to the order of the con tracting

exercises closing out last Monday scored the most pros ofIwith an increased enrollment and kept up a good ratio of gain over any pre ceding year Not only has advance ment been made in increased numbers of students but in good solid workand finish it has recorded its best period The Recital last Friday evening by the pupils of Miss Penland assisted by the pupils of Miss Meek drew a good audience who enjoyed the rendition of the entire programme showing marked improvement over the the preceding year The programme was short well selected and perfectly rendered On Saturday evening the pupils of Miss Meeks class were assisted by the pupils of Miss Penland On that occa sion the large hall was crowded and many could not get standing room and returned to their homes somewhat dis appointed The readings by the young ladies proved that they not only possess rare tallent but that they have had efficient training This was as true in the music as well as in the elocution department On Sunday the Bacca laureate sermon was preached by Rev A R Kasey and it was a masterful address appropriate and stimulating On Monday the graduating exercises began at 9 oclock The class consisted of eightfive young ladies and three young gentlemen the ladies reading essays and the young men delivering orations all acquitting themselves in a highly satisfactory manner to the fac ulty and the audience After a short recess Rev A R Kasey delivered the commencement address the subject being Increase of Knowledge and Ev olution of Mind A short address was made by Prof Neilson after which he

now to the close of the early history of this remarkable man His later history will have to be written by some other scribe This letter will finish his life to the time he left this country and cast his fortune in the sunny South He never did get to keep store The one great desire of his life had been denied him but in passing through the town of Columbia of court days he frequently fell in on jockey street and a kind of insane de sire seized on him to be a horse jockey He had seen the Yarberryg on that fa mous street and seen what splendid horses they always rode He had heard ofone of them getting a horse from Uncle Billy Moore and then in a few days letting have the same horse back end getting heavy boot All these things conspired to make him determine that he would be a horse jockey He had a slow kind of a horse but before showing himself on that noted street he wanted to trade him off for a horse named Elione that would get there One of the McClisters had a horse that fiiled his eye to overflowing It was a beautiful gray mare full of spir Et and get up Melvin bantered Mc Clister fora trade McClister did not seem much struck on M elvins horse out as he wanted to follow farming and his mare was a little too firey to plow in new ground he would consider the question As to where the gray mare came from nobody seemed to know At that early day the gypsies had not become common and they eould not be accused of bringing her in to that community On account of the reputation she afterward acqnired for getting there it was not wondered that her native country was not known Melvin asked many questions about the gray mare to all of which McClister gave straight forward and equivocal answers He asked if the animal ever ran away McClister answered well she is not inclined to run I wont say that she cant run because she can She has an individuality that sometimes asserts itself and at such times she is inclined to scamper and play a little just for the fun of it Melvin asked if she ever kicked Well no McClister assured she never kicks at least hard ly ever Of course if a fly gets on her and she cant knock it off with her tail she will kick it off but I would not recommend her as a kicking ani mal by any means Melvin asked about per workingqualities McClister said she worked well that is so far as head ever tried her He had not work ed her a tobsay that under certain conditions and peculiar states of her mind she might sometimes refuse to work or at least would go faster than a man might want to go But I will say Melvin one thing that sometimes when riding her without any previous warning and seemingly without any purpose in view the will break off at a rapid gate asserting her individuality as it were and at such times all you can do is to hang on and let her have her way Melvin said being a good rider he did not mind a little thing like that and so they traded This conversation and trade took place at Mr George Tay lors on the Crocus road in the pres ence of Mr Taylor Lucien and Rollin Hurt and several neighbors The house where they had congregated was about two hundred yards from the road but between the two points was a mule lot with a fence heavily stacked and rider ed The parties present were cracking Jokes and discussing the merits and demerits of the two horses and the ad Vantages and disadvantages of the trade until Melvin concluded tc mount and see how his nag felt under him She remained perfectly quiet until something was said that sounded likeI go and she went She jumped at least fifteen feet the first jump and fairly split the wind immediately in the direc tion of the mule lot Melvin pulled with all his might and sawed on the reins alternately but all to no pur pose When she reached the fence she made one supreme effort to go over it but it was a little too high She got her fore feet over crushed the top rail and she and the rider their legs tingled together went over and through the fence and was then hid from view of those at the house whoI were intently watching Mr Taylor remarked boys hes killed let us go and see about him They started in a rapid run for the scene To Be Continued WISDOMS

to the News last week I intimated that the commercial club had caused the non action of our Fiscil court in re gard to public roads in this county but I did not aim to make it ap pear that the club had done any one an injustice for we believe that club to be made up of good citizens who pay taxes and want the first results I did mean to say however that we people are opposed to taxing the many for the benefit of the few and conse quently we are opposed to any proposition that is collected to tax the people of this county a sufficient amount to build two miles of pike road leading out three different directions from the town of Columbia or any other town because we know if we were to undertake such a project and road that farcompletenever we extend them any further and that the citizens of the town and vicinity would alone receive the benefit But we arec not opposed to being taxed a reasonable amount for the purpose of making and keeping up good county roads for we know good roads are the life af a county we know too that notwithstanding we have expended more money the last fewon our roads during years than ever before during the same length of time that theI roads are now and have been in worse condition during the past winter than for several years which is- something evidence that there is lacking and this lack will continue until the people of the town and county unite on the same plan whereby road funds can be properly raised and prop erly applied This union of inte ests will never be brought about by the press abusing the people or the people abusing the town but by cultivating a spirit of enterprise and united effort along the line of good roads We are all in favor of the proposition to build a pike from Columbia to Creelsboro and are perfectly wil ling for the county to take stock and thereby aid in building it We prefer the above rout because we believe it will be of greater advantage to all the people than any other now under consider ation and if it comes our wav we will do all for it we are able but if it goes some other way we will not kick because we believe others have rights as well we and are willing to give all the encourage ment we can We are anxious for some enterprising man or comJ pany of men to take hold of the proposition to build the pike from Columbia through so as to con nect with Cumberland river be cause we believe it will be not only an advantage to the people of Columbia and along the rout but to the people of the entire county And we believe that with the proper effort sufficient assistance can be obtained from differ ent source to insure the comple tion of the road In conclusion I will say every good citizen de sires the universal prosperity and happiness of all the people of his county and there is quite a diversity of opinions as to how the greatest amount of prosperity is to be obtained and these differences of opinion can only be reconciled by a spirit of com promise We cant come to gether by abusing each other or by extolling either side too high ly but we can come together if we convince each other that all we want is to share equally or as near equal as possible the bene fits to be derived from the bur bens of taxation M TAYLOR THURLOW Wheat is looking better since the warm rains Mr Billie Jones and family of little Russell Creek was visit ing Mrs Alice Arnett Sunday H D Handy and wife

May Uncle Billie Hood of Greensburg is very low with a complication of diseases One interesting feature of the latest municpal election in Chicago was the use of voting machines These have been tried in many places but probably never before in an election where so many votes were cast In some wards the result of the vote was published in a few minutes after the polls were closed There is no chance of an errone ous count or of a doubtful ballot and the use of a good voting machine requires no more intelligence than a papejr ballot In the course of tine machines will perhaps become universal in this country At present machines are in some communities forbidden by a strict reading of the election laws which order a paper ballot This is a mere tech nical difficulity which may easily be removed when the people are ready for the newer surer and cheaper method Last December some workmen employed in building a lighthouset on Beacon Island in Bengal heard loud rumblings and a rushing noises and noticed that the sea was much disturbed about five miles to the north finally they saw a mass of land above the water A fortnight after Lieutenant Headlam with some officers of the Marine Sur vey visited the newborn island On landing he says in a report published in the Geographical Journal for Aprilwe found the upper crust quite hard and cool except quite close to the beach where the mud was sof- tso soft in places that we sank r above our knees There was no activity visible except at the northern end where several small craters varying in size from one to six feet in diameter were exuding liquid mud but only in small quanities and not with any great violence I con puted that the whole output dur ing the 4ay I spent there would not exceed two tons Notwithstanding the short period of its existence the naturalist of the party discovered fifteen varieties of seeds and pods which had al ready found their way there blown or washed up or deposit ed by birds that had already com menced to utilize the island as a resting place This shows what a very short time it would take for vegetation to grow on an island of this description situated not many miles from the mainland

the city of Columbia and the people of AdoL and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED MAY 22 1907 The Republican papers that predictions tory in Kentucky next fall cant do more than predict Demo crats are still Democrats and there is not the slightest reason why anyone will desert or shift in the contest next fall Nobody wants a Republican victory ex cept Republicans nobody is ex pecting such a thing though aI feWof the over enthusiastics who are led by their fancy are holding up the ghost of their fan cy as a real living probability There is nothing done or contem 1 plated tobe done by Democratic officials to discredit the party in this state The people realize that the Democratic candidates are not untried men but known to be thoroughly competent to take care of the public good of this great Commonwealth It is tHe eternal fitness that will prompt every Democrat to cast his vote for his party nominees in the next contest and the result will doubtless be in keeping with past victories Now some of the Republicans organ are ad vancing the opinion that they have a splendid chance to elect a legislature and thereby secure the next United States Senator The factis that it will not hap penT man for this position has already been selected by a party primary and it was not W J Deboe It may be pleasant for Republican papers to lead their readers into a future land of promise by the prediction rout but it will not change conditions Hon Matt M Mithell of Green county was in our city a few hours last Monday morning He made a splendid record while- a member of the last Legis lature and we think the Democ racy could not possibly make any mistake by giving him an en dorsement for his fine record We also think it would be a wise course to pursue to have each county to endorse for a second f term where the official has la bored faithfully for his constitu J ency as Mr Mitchell didlor County Enquirer The above is a just compliment to a good man and an able honest and faithful Representative of Green and Taylor counties in the last Legislature While it is not our district and while we do not desire to Interfere inany way even if we could in the se lection of a Democratic candidate for those counties yet Mr Mitchells nomination would be goodnews to his many friends in this part of the country A strong man and a true Democrat he may be equaled but not bet tered by the selection of some one else A plot to kill the Czar and Will Roosevelt accept a nomination have become so common the dailies as to reallybe disgust ingOnlY the first may happen y The statement that America has no poets is false Read th News and be convinced Much effort and money has been spent to reach the North pole but the Southern end of the axle tree is left undisturbed Democratic prospects in Ohio are about on par with Repuplica claims of victory in Kentuck next fall Neither are not likel to happen by several thousand votes in each state The dollar price for wheat was passed in the Chicago market last week That is doubtless good news to those who have it to sell but the millions who have it to buy will feel that it is a hardship to eat breadIThe Democrats of Louisville assisted by the Commercial Club are making an effort to se cure the nextNational Democrat ic Convention It appears to us as a fine meeting place and

School furnished the lovers of classical music in this section some rare treats It is not within our power to do justice to each participant in the four recitals as each and every one seemed to reach the height of per fection and showed both talent and training of superior order The entertainments were given in the Presby terian Church and in each instance a large audience was present to enjoy the programme The pupils of Miss Taylor teacher of expression assisted and each one mea ured up to the high expectation of teach er and audience To night Tuesday the last bow to the public wiil be made by the advanced class and it goes as a matter of fact that the entertainment will be one of the best ever given in the city Prof Ohlenmacher is not only competent but has won the reputation of being one of the closest and most per sistent workers that ever guided a stu dent in this part of the Country and his series of recitals furnished overwhelm ling proof of his power to get the best possible results from those who follow his instruction That he has accomplished a good work full up to the high expectations of those who patronized him can not be questioned and that he justly merits the

series of years the most forcible advocate of the Federal theory of the interpretation of the Constitution In 1799 he was offered by John Adamn a place on the bench of the Supreme Court but declined it In 1800 the Republicans as the Democrats of that day were called carried the country and Jefferson was elect ed President by the House in 1801 After the election Marshall was nominated and confirmed as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court As such he gave decisions strongly supporting the Federal theory and his attitude led to much criticism of his appointment after the country had declared for the othe side Of his eminence as a jurist however there has never been any question Strongly impressed as he was with the Federa theory of free constitutional interpretation he wrote as follows No political dreamer would ever be wild enough to think 0f breaking down the line whit separate the States and of compounding the American people into one common mass What Marshall said no politica dreamer would ever do is now seriously proposed by men who stand high in professional life and in official position But the people will probably think that John Marshall was a good enough Federalist and that the project for amending the Constition bj construction which is another expression for disregarding it cannot be entertained Courier Journal When your back aches it is almos

had been more discreet and avoided that It3h he might not have had it until he was eightytwo He might die when he is ninetynine although but for that 13th he might have lived until he is a hundred and five or perhaps he might not have died at all The influence that 13 has on the processes of nature and on the omnipotent powers that rule the universe and all that dwell therein is both terrific and ter rible It is more than likely that members of the human race do not live longer just because un consciously they do on some 13th something they ought not to do and nature is not to be balked Methuselah probably lived to a sensible and mature age because he kept a lookout for the L3th and behaved himself on it wither that or because in his time he days were not numbered and here was no such monster as a LJSth extant to mold human destiny Of course the scoffers will point out that hard luck befalls ower animals and that plants die but to true believers their illustration is farfetched and absurd In the case of the millionaire ited it would be interesting sci entifically astrologically and psychologically to know if he had in mind a specific luck he wished to escape Did

make more provision for a war believed to be inevitable Their standing armies were increased to a burdensome size and their navies were enlarged by new and expensive ships The tax for these wasteful preparations amounted to five dollars per capita in the two nations To the honor of Christian men in both nations let it be remem bered that these demonstrations did not go on without protest On both sides of the line clergy of the Roman Catholic represenItatives ment in both counties labored earnestly and kindly for the averting of so great a disaster Bishop Benavente of Argentina and Bishop Jara of Chili were foremost in their pleas for peace They journeyed back and forth in their respective countries rousing the clergy and laity by their pleading for the tangible expression of abiding peace be tween the nations in the form of a monument on the boundary lineIt was this that- gave focus to peace sentimentI The plan to erect a statue of Christ between the nations re buked the clamor for war At last the boundary dispute was referred by agreement to the King of England and his decis ion which awarded to each na tion a part of what it had con tended for gave general satis factionThen the two nations gratified by the result signed a treaty agreeing that for a term of years all controversies between them should be submitted to arbitra tion and that they would reduce their armies andnavies The women of the two nations took up the movement for the monument A young sculptor Mateo Alonso modeled the statue of Christ which was cast in bronze produced from old can non It is twentysix feet in height and is supported by a granite column surmounted by a globe on which the map of the world is outlined In His left hand the Christ holds a cross rising five feet above the statue His right hand is outstretched in blessing Below are two tablets One gives the history of the monument and the other says Sooner shall these mountains crumble into dust than shall the people of Argentina and of Chili break the peace to which they have pledged themselves at the feet of Christ the Redeemer On the very summit of the An boundarylineI and without strife the statue was erected March 13 1904 a benediction to the nations that erected it and a lesson to the worldThe new battleships were sold and the proceeds turned to peace ful uses Regiments have been mustered out and the men have returned to their productive vo cations The arsenal of Chili has been converted into a school The roads and harbors of both nations have been improved with the money saved from war The great transandean railway is tunneling through the mountains and bringing the nations nearer together in time and commercial interests Taxes are reduced The people prosper Best of all the Spirit of the
