Large Crowds and was a Success in Every Particular FULL LIST OF PREMIUMS AWARDED The closing of the Fair last Friday afternoon was witnessed by one of the largest crowds that has been on the grounds for many years on the fourth day This was due in part to the fact that Thursday was a rainy day and the further fact that many people regar the last day the best one At any rate the Association is wellpleased with the attendance throughout and feet that the many who attended were not dissatisfied with the many fine shows of stock good music and courteous treat ment from all responsible for the entertainment From start to finish good order was maintained but unfortunately for some they took too much of the Social drink and were placed behind the bars to sober up and pay a fine to become wiser if not better There was more good stock on the ground than has been seen there for a number of years The show of hogs was the best ever seen on the grounds and while sheep and cattle were not numerous yet the grade was as good as any section could produce The mules were well up to former exhibitions and attracted much attention The ring horses were there in fine form and the contests were spirited and close and the winners had no easy time The de cisions of the Judges were well re ceived by the exhibitors and the audi ence and we can truthfully say that less complaint was made on this line than at any similar fair ever held here So far as we are able to hear the many who paid at the gate are well satisfied The stock men left happy and the As sociation is well pleased Below we give

few weeks The question of personal priv ilege is one that may come be fore the observant mind each day in the year A few years ago the writer called attention to the depredations committed upon the farmers woodland by the thoughtless people digging na tive ginseng and other medical herbs which served in a measure to suppress this kind of tresspass upon the land owners How ever the advocacy of this fact does not in a measure destroy the idea among some that many things not their own is theirs if they trouble themselves to take it As example men of good standing will go on our creek lands and haul away gravel and convert it to their own use with out so much as asking for it Now a thing not worth asking for and yet is beneficial to us certainly should have a value in someway How much differ ence is there between the man who goes into your fenced up field and hauls away a load of your soil than the one who goes on your outside land and hauls away a load of gravel If the former is

PERRYMAN On the seventeenth of June I issued a circular stating that I was a candidate for the Legislature subject to the action of the Republican party I was a candidate in good faith This was one among the first races that had come up since the wonderful decision of the Kentucky Court of Appeals setting at naught the Louisville election of 1905 In that decision the Court took the grounds that the title to an office torones homestead That was a very far reaching decision I came out as a candidate deter mined to make the race in ac cordance with that principle I was opposed by yourself and an other manboth professing to be ChristiansWhen Zeke Roe asked you if ycu ever used profane language you replied that you were a mem ber of the Church In view of the decision mentioned above and the fact that you professed to be a Christian I felt sure that our race would be upon high toned principles Shortly after I had announced L myself a candidate I met you and proposed to you that if you would not interfere with the two town precincts I would not inter fere with the three White Oak Little Cake and ell ton You readily agreed to it Afterward when I saw you here so of itcalled your attention to our agree l j menteYou said your horses were all busy on the farm and you had to come to Columbia to hire a horse on which to make your canvass The next time I spoke to you about it you said that your uncle at Creelsboro was lying at the point of death and that you were expecting every day to hear of his demise and that you had to keep in touch with theltelephone all the time Th 3 last time I mentioned our agreement you told me that you hadunderstood it to be in fun Now all this time were you not laying your plans by the use of tainted money and bad whisky to carry East Columbia precinct I kept my Part of the contract in good faith JiTime and again my friends insisted on my coming to Little Cake and Whit Oak but I always told them of our agree ment and would not go Now did I do the right thing Did you Then without any evidence in the world and in the face of my denial you persisted in tell ing the people that I was a ring candidate and had been put out by the town clique Now in this did you do right Then you toid Mr of Elroy that I was a very rich man worth 50 000 Now if you did not beS lieve that you ought not have told it If you did believe it your ignorance is so dense that you are unfit to represent this county or any other county in any delib erate assembly- In the speech which you made accepting the nomination you said We must all go to work and make a united effort to elect the State ticket When did you change your mind about the State ticket After the State Convention and after Wilson was nominated you staid one night at Mr Rice Pikes and spent nearly the whole night in abusing Wilson Bradley and the whole ticket Something had come over you between the two periods Did you not from Columbia send out money to luy floaters and to corrupt the ballot generally to the amount of over two hundred dollars Did you not self out to a cor poration when you promised the manager of the Mighty Haag Show to have the license tax reduced on his show in considera tion of two tickets into the show at Glenville If you answer this in the affirmative dont you think you sold too cheap Do you not think that at such prices it will be difficult to raise money enough during your term to pay the cost of your race Did you not promise Mr Mc Cubbin Cane Valley precinct to pass a stock law when you went to Frankfort in consideration of his services in helping you in your election Did you not know at the time that a large majority of the people of Cane Valley were opposed to such a lawWere you not at Cane Valley on the day of the convention and didnot you and your friends buy floaters publicly did you not debauch the ballot so that by its side did not the Music Hall Con vention look respectaBle Do you believe that that con vention was the free expressed will of the Republicans of that precinct and do you believe that your nomination was the ac tion of the party in the county In view of all these facts if they be facts and you can say whether they be facts or notu arnt you ashamed to ask the Re publicans of Cumberland county to ratify such a tainted naming thenomination ro Republicans of Adair county Finally do you believe that when I announced that I was a candidato subject to the action of the Republican party that I ought to be bound by it U L TAYLOR IN MEMORIAM On Saturday June the 29th the death angel visited the home of Louis and Alice Prewitt and took from them their darling little Ralph aged 18 months He was born January 26 1906 Friends Gqd has plucked a bright flower from your home for some wise purpose While we extend to you our deepest sympathy we realize that God alone can pour balm upon your poor aching hearts that angels eyes now watch your darling who is safe with him Suffer little

deeply feel but tis God that has bereft us He can all our sorrows heal Then peaceful be your slumber peaceful in your grave so low you no more of sorrow know I Let us hope to meet him when the cares

hours and the spirit of my dreams Such being the case I shall offer a friendly suggestion not meaning to be hyporcritical or to assume dictatorship For bravery chivalry and hospitality the dark and bloody domain ha the can over every other place ever penetrated by the hardy ex plorersI the people of Ken tucky are not niggardly and yet in one thing they are weighed in the balance and found want ingThat the spirit of education abounds the M F High School together with the L W Training School are proud and enduring monuments while the determination to maintain the majesty of the law is attested by a magnificent temple of justice surmounted by an imposing town clock and by a safe and sanitary jailThe proff of your commercial activity and enterprise is evidenced p by three good banks and your elegant business houses with modern display windows Your town is backed by a sturdy citizenship who wrest a good living from mother earth and the hum of machinery is- is heard in the land certainly singing with a livelier candnce than the dolorous Song of the Shirt as portrayed by the poetic genius of Hood That God is honored and his country exalted the proof abounds when the sojourner sees your church spires pointing heav enward and beholds the r pre sentatives of the church militant wending their way to diva e worship like that multitude de scribed by John at Patmos which no man can number But allow me to suggest that you fail to give your county pa proper support The News 1er your political battles it en internal improvements andI civic righteousness When the forces of Democracy and Republicanism meet in conflict the call ofIGod and to stimulate interest in your boasted institutions of learn ing it rings out clariontoned the notes of warning or commen dationEvery merchant in Adair irjcounty should advertise in its columns and every lawyer doc tor dentist or what not should keep cards in its columns Ad vertising certainly pays both the paper and the one who places the ad Your editor will tell you that it costs at least 1200 to get out a weekly paper fiftytwo times in the year Printers must be paid paper and ink cost some thing and the editor is not averse to now and then reveling hine may have no pride in the matter the mandates of society require that he wear clothes If he is a fighting editor and I belligerency is expected of a Kentuckian his guns cost some thing and he must have tongue practice You see I know for Ive tried it Cleveland county where I live is not one fourth as well endowed by nature as Adair county Land is poor timber mostly short leaf pine The cattle horses and hogs of this region would be objects of rid icule around Columbia yet the people here maintain two county papers the Democratic organ adsfrom every merchant in Shelby and most of the county merchant Every lawyer doctor dentist photographer foundryman cot tonginner laundryman livery man etc patronize its columns with ads Kings Mountain a town of near 3000 inhabitants also maintain a paper weekly arid its columns are well patron izedCleveland county has just built a graded school building at Shel by costing 35000 and a contract has just been let for a 68 000 court house Our poll tax is 260 and weI get back 110 per capita forI school purposes While a 30000 Courthouse would have answered every pur pose in a county having no roads and paying school teachers a beggarly stipend But if a sterile county like this can run three papers and all get good ad vertising patronage why cant AdairI know that Adair needs a paper and really wants it be sides wanting one she has it but how it can be run under present conditions at any profit to publisher is a a mystery Adair county ought to furnish a paid subscription list of 4000 and at least 10000

Sheriff R P Mar shallIn groups here and there can be seen men some of them fathers of daughters and if the law is allowed to take its course in Wagners case it will be because Crawford county has a
