Campbellsville last week He found business in the two towns fairly good could have been much better but a ma jority of the horny handed sons of toil were on their farms saving hay while the sun was shining Merchants and other business men make no complaint when the farming element is not seen upon the streets knowing that it is necessary for crops to be made and saved in order that mankind in all the various avocations may prosper Greensburg is one of the oldest towns in Kentucky and if we are correctly informed in its earlier days it was more prosperous than at the present time though at this date it enjoys a fine run of business In the days of Auld Lang Syne all the banking business of Adair Taylor Russell part of Barren Hart and Larue were done at Greens burg it being the only town in the Green river section of Kentucky sup porting a banking institution The banking house was in the dwelling now occupied by Mrs W N Vaughan and her sons and daughter Greensburg long been known for interlectuality andat one time she had the reputation of maintaining the strongest bar in the State There were the Wards the Buckners the Barnetts Capt Billie Willis and a number of other legal lights whose knowledge was known through out the state There are many interesting events that could be written about Greens burg but it will take the work of a local historian to give them with any degree of accuracy Greensburg is having a steady growth and in the last few years quite a num ber of handsome residences and bus iness houses have been erected Since the building of the bridge across Green river business of all classes has won derfully increased and at the close of the year 1907 the cash receipts of the town will fat exceed the year 1906 Our representative went over town meeting his friends securing a number orders for jobwork etc At Campbellsville he met the same courteous treatment and also found the business men waiting for the farmers To have an idea of how fast the capital of Taylor is growing it is necessary to take a stroll over the city Quitea number of delightful homes have recently been completed and others are being erected Be it said to credit of Campbellsville

about the condition E of the roads of Adair county There is cause for complaint Gen erally the fault is with the Overseers and Hands failing to do their duty You have been depending too much upon the Supervisor and I Road Fund This year the Fiscal Court failed to levy any road tax at all The county tax rate for this year all told is only 15 cents on the 100 the lowest for many years The working of road now 5 depends on the Overseers warning in the hands and working their full six days This should be done as early as possible and give the roads time to pack down before winter The law provides that 5no grading shall be done after September 1st As the Fiscal Court has provided no means for working the roads except by the Over E seers and Hands we must make the best use of that means 5 Whether this is a bad system or a good one its all we have It is E the law and each Overseer and hand should cheerfully discharge E the public duty imposed upon him of helping to maintain our public I 5 roads Heretofore some have put in full time while others have shirked Some have been prosecuted while others have escaped by E the Overseers not reporting on them Each one should bear his I part of the burden You will take notice that after the 1st of September each Overseer will be summoned to appear before the County Judge to I testify under oath as to what hands if any failed to work out their time or failed to do good and faithful work Also some of the Ehandswill be summoned from each Road District to testify as to whether or not the Overseers failed to do their whole duty in warning E in hands and putting in full time All failures on the part of InayIbe no failure on the part of any one but that each upon whom this 5 duty falls may work not merely to get credit for his time but

matter of common sens If a man assumes the duty of work ing he can not shirk the respon sibility of saving He has not worked sanely if he has not saved a fair percentage of his earnings For he must spend a fair per centage of that which he earns The best citizen cannot be measured by what he saves re gardless of his duty to spend But he owes himself his friend and the community which he lives a sane measure of saving Long hours at so much of the work of the world is not a virtue in the worker per se It may suggest only his weakness To do a mans work in the shortest day possible should be a
