stopped at the parson age and took the vows that make two hearts beat as one The father of the bride did not know of the occurrence until his daughter handed him the license Both the groom and bride

candidate for Clerk of the Court of Appeals reached this place about 1030 stop ping at the Columbia Hotel From the time of their arrival until the dinner hour they were kept busy shaking hands with their numerous friends all of whom were enthusiastic in the cause for Democracy- At 130 in the afternoon every avail able spot in the large Courtroom was taken and many of the yeomanry were left upon the outside The audience was called to order by Attorney L C Winfrey paying a nice compliment to the people of Adair and the distinguished guests When Mr Winfrey concluded Hon James Gar nett of this place in a few wellchosen sentences introduced Governor Beck ham to the waiting assembly and for two hours the distinguished Executive spoke to the most attentive audience ever gathered in the Court House In a few minutes after he opened his ad dress the crowd upon the outside be gan clammoring for a speech and Mr Laffoon went down andspokefrom the Courthouse door It was Governor Beekliams desire to begin his campaign at Columbia and in his opening remarks he paid a high compliment to the Democrats of Adair county He then reviewed his own rec ord as the Executive of the State comparing his official acts to those of W 0 Bradley stated that Wilson and Bradley yere one in thought and if people of Kentucky should elect Wilson they could expect another Bradley ad ministration Refering to the affairs of the State under Republican rule he showed that the public funds were recklessly spent and that when Brad ley retired from offioe he left the State largely in debt He scored Bradlley for ordering out the militia intimes of peace his effort and Wilsons effort to defeat Dr W G Hunter for United States Senator after he was the caucus nominee of the Republican Legislature etc He spoke of the stand he had taken for Temperancehis favoring the County Unit law the closing of the saloons in large cities on the Sabbath and that Wilson was a superb artful dodger of the issue He showed the condition of affairs at Frankfort under Democratic rule that Kentucky was out of debt notwithstanding she had built a capitol at the expense 1600 000 had increased the school percapita until it was now larger than it had ever been had expended large sums nf money on the charitable institutions that the Democratic Administration was proud of its record and he defied Mr Wilson the Republican candidate for Governor to refute his statements He touched upon all public questions making one of the most argumenta tive speeches we ever heard It was as he said a heart to heart talk con vincingly spoken He closed by urging the voters of Adair county to be at the polls on the 6th of November and cast their suffrage for Judge S W Hager for Governor and the remainder of the Democratic ticket Mr

Lorena Pile not only in Columbia and Adair county but throughout this section of Kentucky were very much elated last Wednesday afternnoon when the announcement came that she had won 3rd capital prize a handsome and costly automo mobile far outstripping all other con testants outside of the Louisville dis tricts her vote being 457122 Miss Pile is the telephone operator at this place and her courteous treatment of the patrons of all lines running into the Exchange gave her a wide acquaint ance and her friends were diligent from the time the contest opened The machine that she is to receive is valued at 750 and it could not have been more worthily bestowed The winners of the three capital prizes do not get a free trip to the Exposition and Wash ington D C but they will be given cut rates and Miss Pile will be with the Herald party on the coming inter esting and what will doubtless prove a very enjoyable trip Mr W S Knight passed through here a few days ago en route to the upper counties for the purpose of employing a contractor to build the pike from Jamestown tho the mouth of Greasy Creek It is our understanding that he failed to find a contractor who could take the work and he returned home saying that all necessary tools and machinery would be purchased and a local force would be employed to build the pike The M and F High School is now in good order and the increase during the first week seems to be very gratifying to Mr Darnall The patronage is altogether local and by thorough work the confidence of the people can be se cured in further encouragement

IN LOCUST TREES The Kansas City Journal says farmers who are planting locust trees declare that there is no more profitable way of utilizing cheap land The scheme is figured out in this way Two thousand and four hundred trees can be planted to an acre In eight years these r trees will be large enough to cut for fence posts At retail they will be worth 25 cents each or 50 cents a tree That means at retail a crop worth 1200 an acre at the end of eight years or an average of 1J5150 an acre a year If the locust farmer could realize one third of the retail price he would have 50 an acre which would be a fair return in comparison with other crops If by cheap land is meant It poor land some of the owners of w the worn out farm in Virginia dcr example might find it profit Table to go to raising fence posts f Some sections of that country were farmed in colonial times and after this long time the land is about worn out i Fertilization has not kept pace with decay In some places the farmer might har vest it with a jack knife and the f torn has a hard struggle to reach the ear stage- Perhaps the best thing farm t such debilitatedera can do in V 7 egions is to look forward only eight years to a rich harvest of of fence postsCincinnati En quirer Occasional headache belching bad taste in the mouth lack of apetite and slight nervousness are symtoms of indi gestion which when

readily sees how the people of the north and east look upon Kentucky as prohibition State ename she has so long carried is leaving her and it seems to astound the editor of Colyers Weekly that 97 out of 119 counties in Kentucky are now dry The trend towardstringent restriction of the sale and con sumption of liquor would be ob served if it would not be obscured by the louder noises of our jSUIal movement of impressive size and importance Who that hasI the old idea of Kentucky willnot be surprised to learn that in 94 out of 119 counties of the State no liquor is sold 1 Quite potent socialipressure against the making and selling of liquor In the most important of the secret societies in Kentucky makers of liquor will not be advanced In Ohio East Liverpool witha popula tion of 25000 53 saloons have gone dry an incident whose signiffcance lies in the fact that this is the largest city in the State that has ever votedno licenseOne of the striking evidences of the spread of

fifteen Southern States from onehalf to fourfifths of the counties are dry under the lo cat option law There is a good deal of insight in the remark of the Memphis NewsScimitar that that the south is
