precinct in the county gave a wet majority it being Cleveland with 25 At Laf ayette where the Peo ple have had to do with it the vote stood 233 dry to 12 wet Steadily the sale of strong drink is being

producing fowls On another place Mr Hammonds will join him in the old fashioned way of production on a large scale The mostpopular breeds will be purchased and in each instance will be the leading

Some one with a little time to spare should start the ball rolling ANOTHER FREAK IN CAT LIVING Mr C H Murrell reports a strange kind of a cat that came to his premises near a year ago While not different from the average mouser in its general makeup yet in its association it mixes with the feathered tribe and seems to be on familiar terms with an old white Plymouth rock rooster They are often seen playing togtaher and are as com panionable as if they were both chicks or kittens They are often found wal lowing in the wood dirt together and playing on the grass like lambs It is unexplainable uncommon but it is a fact nevertheless and can be seen at Mr MurreJJs residence any day the sun ines If you disbelieve this state Blent ask Mr Murrell he is of age and can speak for himself A GOOD TRACT OF TIMBER SOID Corbin Rowe of Sparksvil e bought from N M Tutt of Columbia the merchantable timber on a tract of 321 acres of land in that vicinity known as the John Blair land

the others were slightly shorter They were caught by hooking the bait being minnows and the pole an ordinary hick ory In company with him was a gen tleman with a fine reel but no fish The old fashion way is hard to beat Mr B G Redman showed his appreciation of The News last Saturday by calling on us and leaving a couple of dollars to tide over the dull period now on i C g i COLUMBIA AGAINST CAMPBELLSVILLE Eleven to Nine In Favor of The Visiting Team The game of base ball between the Columbia and Campbellsville teams last Thursday on the grounds of The LindsayWilson was one of the most interesting that has been played in Columbia this season It was a contest in which both sides seemed confident of winning before the game was called but like all other events contingent upI on calculations of the future it had its surprises At the close of the third inning the score stood 9 to 2 in favor of Columbia but at that time the unex pected began to happen and it kept happening until the game was won by the visiting team the score standing 11 to 9 in favor of Campbellsville Some bad and costly errors were made by some of the Columbia players which were readily grasped by their opponents and used to their full worth in scoring The game had its usual lively features and the conduct toward all players well in the keeping of cour teous treatment While the Camp bellsville team won the game and proved master in this the first contest yet this does not foreshadow defeat in the next meeting The Columbia team failed toplay up to its ability made some bad hors not usually made by any of its players got outplayed and lostthe victory Mr E G Atkins umpired the game and while he failed to please the most exacting on both sides yet he decided as we believe in an honest fearless man ner and stood like the rock of Gibralter on every dicision regardless of clamor criticism or ridicule We trust that the two teams will meet again in the near future The result as shown by the scorecard is given below as follows Columbia Er SO SH 3BH 2Winfrey r Cravens fb 1 1 Lobo c 2 Montgomery ss 2 2 2 T Judd tb 1 1 Shelton rf 2 1 Dohoney If 1 2 R Judd cf 2 Stults p 111Campbellsville

WHITE By U L Taylor Number XI Conclusion When the company reached the mule lot where Melvin was supposed to her l dead he was no where to be seen The fence was very much demoralized and there was a similar break in the fence on the opposite side and the gray mare and Melvin were both gone While gazing around in search of the fugitives Jesse Stone came by and said he had met Melvin and the mare just this side of Gadberry going in full speed and he spoke to Melvin but he made no re ply Stone watched him until he was out of sight and there was no let up as long as he could be seen Melvin was not heard of for several days but he and his gray animal made their appear ance in Columbia on the next Saturday and on his way home he fell in company with Miss Ella Garnett on her way from a neighborss house Melvin rode along with her home They passed down the lane to the house through a large gate at the mouth of the lane Melvin hitched the young ladies horse without dismounting and Ella invited him to get down and go to the house No said Melvin but the nag waited to bear no more she had her head set to wards that big gate and she went She made one grand jump and was off like lightning she struck that gate square in the center and paused not but pass ed through and scattered the debris on either side Melvin did all in his power lx check the mad rush but had no effect on her whatever The young lady stood on the stile and watched the mad flight perfectly amazed and chagrinned at the treat ment that Melvin had given her and resolved that she would never have any thing to do with him henceforth and forever She saw nothing more of Melvin for several days and when they met it took all his eloquence and per sausive powers to convince her that the gray beast was altogether uncontrolla ble How many of these spells Melvin had to endure when he was alone we have no means of knowing but as she never took one without hearing a word that sounded like go we presume that when alone Melvin had no trouble next spell was on Sunday not Jie above stampede meeting at Clear been feeding and nd putting her inn F because he had a young lady on nad determined to r which would seal time to come He road He had donned- g apparel including his T He found the girl ready ney were soon on the road After few preliminary and very scattering remarks he came to the subject bear ing most heavily on his mind Well Miss he stammered I have some thing to say to you your answer to which will send my destiny for all time to come I have dearly loved you for a fyog time and the question that I am going to ask you has been on my lips upon several occasions but my courage would fail me But now I am going to ask what may be the fatal question zmd 1 beseech you not to answer No This was the last word that passed be tween them for the racer hearing the word no thought it was go and she went She leaped at least fifteen feet the first leap and shot like lightning through the air The young lady was left alone in the road so indignant that she never would hear a word of expla nation from him and the incident caused her to lose faith in mankind generally and never married The friends and neighbors tried in vain to persuade her to forgive Melvin she never would and never has It will never be known where Melvins wild flight ended that day He was seen passing White Oak church going in the direction of the Russell Springs further than this P have no information The last and most serious run was rmade in Green county Melvin was teaching school somewhere in the vicinity of Greensburg The last week oft his school had arrived he roae the gray nag down on this his last trip On Saturday morning he started homeward fter bidding adieu to his many friends 1liere hoar been much rain and the river was very full outof its banks in many places There was no bridge in those days and the ferry was not very reliable When Melvin reached the vicinity of the river he met a man of whom heenquired the conditionof the ferry The man told him the river was dangerous full and much heavy drift was passing Melvin asked if it would be safe in his opinion to undertake to merry it The man answered with a t r rI I very emphatic no and the mare was gone A tall bank was immediately in front of her with the water up to the top of it all the pulling and sawing on the reins that Melvin could do would not restrain her She reached the bank without any check up and went over The water was at least twenty feet deep and horse and rider went to the bottom In less time than it takes to record it they came to the surface and after blowing the water from their nostrils went under again After a series of plunges and jumps they came out on this side of the river thorough ly drenched The cold bath had had no effect to cool the ardor of the high fly er and she started on her homeward road It was a cool November morn ing and Melvin being thoroughly wet soon began to feel the pain of cold but it made no differance with the mad beast The sun was shining and the rapid transit combined with the suns heat served to dry him off rapidly and before reaching Camp Knox he was entirely dry and the mare was somewhat checked in her mad career and they had a very pleasant trip for the balance of the journey- I am now done with Melvins early history He figures no more in this country The last we hear from him he had joined Capt J Newt Coffeys company and went South to canvas fo Hitchcocks analysis of the Bible and his subsequent history will have to be written by another My task is done I have written things in these sketches that were somewhat painful to me but a historian must be true before all ese UARTfIElD = = SQUIRES At the home of the bride in Green county May

gay Upon himself was struck But made a sad mistake one day Which caused his evil luck He unlike you was quite unknown To fortune or to fame Yet claimed ancestors of his own And Moses for his name Though not the famous one of old He was a modest creature A very patient loving soul And by the way a preacher He owned a nag of blood and speed As fast as she could be But still he found himself in need Of saddle hood and tree With Moses strict economy Was next to Christian grace And so his fathers saddle tree Was made to supply the place He gave some cloth hed bought in town The proper cut and stitch Thus made a hood and tacked it down Then coated it with pitch wouldrA pressing need supply As well as any saddle hood Then hung it up todry When Moses thought the pitch well dried One fine April morning To see his Susie he did r de Every rival scorning To dress himself he neer forgot In clothes both neat andnew And when old roan began to trot Then Moses troted too As now adown the road they go Both are in a daddle For roan and saddle fit youknow And Moses fit the saddle To make his happiness complete wooingFairWhile turtle doves are cooing Although the bee and butterfly- So sweetly kiss the roses His Susies kisses wouldsupply Far better sweets forMoses But joy may oft times turn to grief Without a timely warning Alas The sticky pitch beneath Poor Moses now is warming With swaying limbs to speed advance His way is now pursued Till sad to tell the hood to pants Is quite securely glued Tis thus he nears her quiet home Maintaining his position Applying whip and spur to roan iNot heeding his condition There was his Susie prinked and prim All smiling in the door Waiting now to welcome him As she had done before Just come right in and do not fear Pray why do you not come That ugly beau of mines not here And papas gone from home But Moses has a grave excuse For like a sticking plaster The more he tries to pull it loose The more he sucks the faster Although he trie to freedom gain By efforts oft repeated His every effort is in vain He can not be unseated His Susie sees mm there remain And does this truth discover Although he is a loving swain She has a stuckup lover And thus she sees her beau depart With mirth beyond control While he with true love in his heart But anguish in his soul And now poor Moses takes the swoons Whenever the bad boys Ask if his courting pantaloons Have dropped the latter clause He makes his vows to man and jove That roan hett neer bestraddle And ride to see his lady love Upon a tacky paddle J T JONE- SMontpelier Ky TO

EXPOSITION By George F Viett Norfork VaWhile not in so tremendous a scale as in the opening weeks the naval display at Jamestown will nevertheless be maintained in an adequate manner throughout the entire period of theExposition- The United States government has assigned three ships to duty right off the great pier during the seven months and these will be contanstly open to the inspection of visitors Considering that the most popular exhibit at the Worlds Fair at Chicago was an imitation battleship built on piles in the lake the reality of the Jamestown squadron will be of the greatest interest to strangers from the interior But this is by no means the limit of naval representation the harbor of Hampton Roads being a naval rendezvous is seldom without several war vessels lying at anchor and the ships of the United States navy are constantly arriving and leaving the harbor The Navy Yard at Portsmouth and the great shipbuilding plant at Newport News are generally crowded with war craft under construction and undergoing repairs so that no visitors need leave the section without having hisf curiosity fully satisfied concerning naval matters Some of the foreign fleets will not ar rive until later in the summer and an effort will be made to have this govern ment extend a further invitation to the different naval powers to make Hampton Roads a stopping place f r their individual cruising vessels during theI period of the Exposition This is a frequent occurrence in ordinary times and with proper representations to the different governments coud be made a feature This to correct the impression that the dispersal of the presen fleet signi fies the ending of the naval display At no time during the entire period of the Jamestown Exposition will there be less than twentyfive war ships on the nearby waters for the instruction and entertainment of visitors FAIR DATES Crab Orchard July 103 days Stanford July 173 days Lancaster July 243 days Danville July 313 days

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 WED MAY 29 190T The reunion of Confederate soldiers in Richmond Va next week will doubtless be one ofj the greatest meetings the old veterans of the Lost Cause have ever had The low rates and the fact that the meeting will be in the Confederate Cap ital city and within easy reach of the Jamestown Exposition will cause many of the old battle scarred heroes to bid adieu to home folks and once more join their comrades for a few days It has been a long time since they trudged through that part of the country with hopes of vie tory aftd fears of defeat it has been maiis years of hardships and toil since they stacked arms apPomattox and returned to their homes to start life anew but braver and truer men never espoused a cause nor never faced adverse circumstances with more determination Yielding only to overpowering numbers they never surrendered the indipend ence bravelySand heroically undertook to re pair the devastated country that had so ruthlessly been overrun and destroyed by their common foeHov well they have suc ceeded is familiar to the entire country for today the Sunny South is still the proudest gamest and most independent part of our land The old soldiers many of them have long since gone to their eternal camp ing ground many are yearly yielding to the inevitable but still many remain to clasp each others hands in the once defiant Capital of their country The sting of defeat has long since passed the horrors of that war are brushed aside but the love for comrades and respect for foe has steadily grown stronger as time has winged its way toward the shores of eternity Then the young man in his teens is no v the gray haired veteran the Rebel then but now the p honored citizen Once misunder stood and much abused but now known and honored by the many who faced him in that terrible t struggle Richmond sitnated on its many hills has made marked improvements since it floated to the breezes the Con federate flag and honored and protected the valient Southern soldiers What was love then is still love today and no where in all this country could a more cordial welcome be given and no place so appropriate for it to be extended May the many who will be fortunate enough to gath er around the old hearthstone as it were for three days share the full pleasures that come in reviewing the countless deeds of valor on the battlefields of long ago May they renew their love for each other extend toward those who goodWillI the wilderness in the at AppomattoxThe Dr Sarah Mur f jhy charged with the murder tPl1 0CC Miss Katie Bryant last year re suited in her acquittal last week From the reports given suet beIin this State aside forever the power of the Judge whose instructions pre vented the jury from any other decision There could scarcely be a doubt as to her guilt end yet in the face of the fact that the evidence could not then be produced through the abscence of leading witnesses said to have been sent by defendants attorneys beyond the jurisdiction of the court the trial was per mitted to proceed It is a shame and a disgrace to that city to this State a travesty on justice and a premium on criminal prac tice This is the second or third time this woman has been charged with the heinous crime ofmurder and been set free to continue the practice that de stroys life to hide shame and disgrace It was stated at the time it occurred that the man in the case would be run down but that failed to materialize and now as the climax of tha whole affair after that beautiful young woman had been betrayed by a wretch and murdered by a de mon that justice is defeated through disreputable practice of lawyers who hold the dollar high er and of more value than the character of woman or life itself It is high time the people of this country should look to the selec tion of none but competent just officials and the disbarrment of such attorneys as will resort to dirty methods to defeat justice The decision of the court of LouisIville of that city The decision sets aside the election on the ground- of frauds It is now a question whether the Governor will fill the vacancies by appointment or the preceding officials take the reign of city government At any rate the Fusion adherents won a victory but too much fraud pre vented the election of any one The decision ought to be good and wholesome for Louisville and a warning to other cities in the State The time has come when the majority of the people want better political methods from both parties and the fact is that they mean to have it The old woman Mrs Barbara Boss of Louisville who it will be remembered was charged with throwing gasoline on her aged husband last year and igniting his clothing with a match was tried for murder in the crim inal curt of Louisville last week and acquited Just whatit takes to constitute murder in Louisville is hard to determine The acquital of Judge James Hargis at Lexington last week came in the nature of a surprise to many In thispart of the coun norIour purpose say guiltyTbut regardless of the verdict a large part of the peo pIe still entertain the same opin ion as heretofore At any rate he is now legally clear The d el e ga t e d Republican County

the hero of San tiago shows plainly that the Federal forces reckoned too soon Qr reall 3f failed to gague the situation before the battle begun True it was only a little conflict pleasant of coursebut it has its bearing and shows that the old regulars are still a pebble on the beach and are not ready to give a deed of trust nor beat the march of retreat Fifty delegates were named to cast the 17

to party has never been questioned and at no time has he ever sulked or refused to work to the midnight hour for its princi ples its nominees and its policies He has never held and never be fore asked for an official position His sacrifice for his party his worth in its building together with the appreciation of his abili ity secured for him the strong ennrcme of his party assoi andores means that

Examiners contained many surprises it wasrather a severe test so considered by many especially so in Arithmetic Mrs Shelton the County Superintendent stated that theJ grades were good on all branches ex cept arithmetic and on this many fell below the grade that would entitle them to a certificate She considers the re quirements in this branch rather difficult and a little to exacting to require from those who seek to teach our pub lic schools especially where the time was so limited as to dispense with the entire examination inside of two days There were 44 applicants and the re sult is as follows 4 recieved firstclass certificates 5 second class l8 third and the remainder failed A large per cent of the applicants were young two thirds of them being only 18 years of and JfailgresCounty Superintendent Mrs Shelton 3Sfcs A H3allard of Columbia Mr Hirarn Conover of Montpelier No one who knows them would have the shadJ ow of a doubt as to their ability their willingness and intense desire to give every applicant everything earned So far as we know there is no com plaints against the Board each one taking the grades some with glad hearts some with a mixture of glad ness and regrets and in humility Those who recieved firstclass are as follows Messrs F G and M R Gab bert Casey Creek E A Strange Glensfork and J F Thurman Breed ingThe examination struck hard in many places but the best showing we have seen goes to the credit of Taylor county while the worst is indicated in the returns of the Board in Green coun ty As we get it Cumberland county with 24 applicants had 11 failures Adair with 44 has 27 Russell with 40 has 30 Green with 27 has 19 and Tay lor with 48 has only L- It will be seen that 179 applied for certificates in the five counties andi that 88 failed being nearly 50 per cent which should impress the many who re ceived second and third grades as truly as those who failed the importance of a more thorough preparation LULA WHEAT DEAD IMRS On last

innunda ting thousands of acres of grow ing crops At present the stream is stationery here but the tributaries are rising and there is no doubt but that the river will reach a stage of fortyfive feet or even more at this point before the rise is over Yesterday I spent the afternoon with a boating party above this city and wassurprised to find whole plantations sub merged on this side of the river On one plantation we rowed through a cotton field of several hundred acres and on several oc casions the ladies of the party leaning from the boats side gath ered flowers from the water in shallow places All of this section cannot be cultivated this year for should the water subside now it would be three weeks be fore the fields could be entered and then it would be entirely too late to pitch a crop In other parts of the country the planters have planted cotton three times and will have to plant again pro vided seed can be found From what I learn through the colums of the CourierJournal Herald and the News I can but come to the conclusion that Kentucky is ahead of the southwest as far as crops are concerned this year There will be but very little corn raised in this section and the outlook is extremely discouraging Notwithstanding the unfavor able conditions business i n all branches very good and factories of all kinds continue to seek loca tions here The city which was made a city of the firstclass two years ago is growing in wealth and population rapidly in fact houses cannot be built fast enough to accomodate those who are seeking homes here I notice that Hecky Coffey has rooted into the Columbia postI office and the Lord only knows what else he will be trying to get into next It occurs to me that he will probably enter the race for Congress against Jockey Yarberry and if he does I will take a vacation and come in and see the wool fly The late freezes have no doubt ruined his crop of knot ty apples on his Briary Domain plantation and I would advise John Diddle to watch his orchard closely this year I had hoped to get Hecky Ed Atkins and Joe Burley down in this neckof woods to faceabusiness but I presume they have formed a partnership with Mark Wilson and gone to raising tree chickens However I will meet them at the fair in August and discuss the matter with them They do say that my friend Col Will King got scared at a couple of razor backs down in Tennesee several months ago and took to the trees swearing the bars were after him and call ing ont he Louisville region to come to his assistance It is strange what a peculiar effect the winter dews of the mountains have on some people and especially so with my friend King I can only hope that Will will have a more pleasant trip the next time he invades the territory where the moon shines all the
