fortune and lost an eye and her chances to forage was cut short To put her on Even terms he feeds her separately and the place is on the back of a fine Jersey cow She is trained to fly up and the cow

orphan at a tender age She was reared by her uncle Mr Luther Howard She is a great favorite among her wide circle of friends for her gentle manner and kind disposition She will be great ly missed in the home where she has so successfully filled the place of daughter Immediately after the cer emony the couple came to the home of J G Sublett who isthe father of the groom where a bountiful supper Was spread sixty guest being present We extend to this desering couple our best wishes BIG SUIT SETTLED At the present term of the Taylor Circuit Court the Bank of Columbia recovered a judgment for 750533 against the tax collector of Taylor county for the year 1902 and his bond men which insures the collection of this debt and intereston it from the date of the judgment This debt for many years has been charged off and has n been carried by the bank as an iJasset but now it will be entitled to go to increase its already large surplus and undivided profits thus adding strength to that already strong institu- tionI We understand that in the year countyt borrowed 4000 from the bank with which to takein 13 333 33 of its railroad bonds upon a compromise and then refused to pay it or the interest on it The Bunk recovered judgment against the county and by mandammus Ii succeeded in getting a teyyo pay the debt ii1902and the collector refused I f to collect the levy whereupon the bank filed suit against the collector and his sureties with the above result In thelitigation the case was twice taken to the court of Appeals the bank winning each time in that court Thus it appears by litigation and delay a debt which could have been l1d wIth 4000 has at last reached the end of the law amounting to nearly double besides the cost the county and the col lector have incurred in attorneys fees and otherwise in resisting what would appear to a casual observer to have been a foregone conclusion at the start The late Judge James Garnett Hon James Garnett and judge W W Jones were the attorneys representing the bank irrthe litigation ACCIDENTALLY SHOT One day last week an accident oc curred at F L Selbys store located at Rowes X Roads Russell county A gun was on the counter and

had an aunt living in the neigborhood employed by a legless soldier at 50 a year where he saved sufficient money to obtain an education and today one of the leading ministers of Mississippi and pastor of a fashionable city church is the remarkable but true life history of Rev J E Carpenter who was a visitor at Franklin last Friday en route to his homeat Meridian Miss from Adair county in this State where be had been to see Mr and Mrs Watkins who in the days of his poverty and distress lent him material aid and for whom he entertains feelings of deepseated gratefulness that will linger till the heart that knows neither fear or forgetfulness is still forever Rev Carpenter is a son of JohnCar penter who died in Simpson county in 1868 from the Results of an injury received at the old Fair ground Soon thereafter his wife died leaving four small children No heritage save that of an honest name was left tho orphans and the neighbors believing that the best disposition that could be made of John E Carpenter was to place him with the Shakers then a flourishing colony at South Union in Logan county and as there were none to object this was accordingly done The boy soon tired of the monotonous life among the people who neither mart or give in marriage and with no other object in view than to escape from his en vironments he set out afoot and fate it seem directed his steps to Allen county On Bays Fork creek he met Mrs Spann who learned from the boy his pitable condition and also his name Living in the vicinity at the time was Eli Watkins who was known all over Allen county

enoughto let us share the fun with them In spite of all the bumps and falls everything rang with laughter so that it was hard to hear the bell when it called us Teachers as well as pupils enjoyed the fun and it seemed that their sleds were most sure to dump them or perhaps it was caused by the ones who did the guiding Miss Mary W isms was confined to her room aevferaldiays of last week with

Southern Kentucky that The LindseyWilson School is too full to accommodate more students is a mistake and does that institution an injustice It is a fact that the attendance is much larger than at any other time in all its past but there is ample room in the college building and at the dining tables for more but the dormitories are full Profs Neilson and Moss have rented good rooms convenient to the campus which students may occupy with the same privileges and under the same su pervision as those rooming in the dor mitories The success of this institution has been gained by close meritori ous work on the part of those managing it and the full attendance is a trib ute to the thorough work that is being done there It gives us pleasure to call a halt on the report that will keep many yet from entering this institution unless corrected and we take it that no one will purposely cripple the attend ance and growth of this school Tell everybody that there is room ample room at the LindseyWilson

address delivered by Andrew Ellicott a very successful Scotch farmer of CanadaAlways have something grow ing on the soil and something de caying in the soil The soil is the cemetery of ages and the life of all that is to comeGreat harm has been done by the cry of abandoned farm The only thing to do is to strive to buildup not tear down The man who lays a straight furrow will be more likely to be a Godfearing man a better citizen and a truer neighbor than if content with slack work Clover is the foundation of all agricultural prosperity and it must ever be our salvation as farmers The fight for moisture is far fgreaterLive stock offers the only solution of the agricultural problem but it must be backed by brains and criticaloversight Mans necessity is Gods opt portunity Always sell a finished product The single feed of hay for the horse if sold takes more away from the farm than a ton of butt ter For the man who doesnt have ambition there is always aI lion in the way The man who lives in the com pany of scrub stock insure to be a a scrub himself 4 P DOG CAPTURES ROBBERS i Tom the big cuban bloodhound owned by sherriff William Kettle of Antrim county Mich is one of the most respected creatures in the northern part of that state He is the dog who landed two members of a post office robbing gaIl behind the bars a year ago ly after chasing them over 100 miles and finding

revealed how the man had been forewarned of the manner of his death The wife testified that the evening previous to his being killed he had returned to his home in an unusual state of deprssion which was the result of the impression he had received that dire catastrophe was awaiting him and which he could not banr During the night he start ed up from slumber and com plained that he felt as if a ton of rock was on his head In the morning added to his fit of de pression was the memory o f what had transpired during the night and he would have remain ed at home for that day had not the wife made light of the pre monition When he departed from the house he kissed his little daughter farewell remark ing that he did not expect to see her again That afternoon a neighbor employed in the same shaft brought the wife the intelligence that the husband had been caught and killed under a mass of rock and that he was the only one injured The wife hastened to the mme shaft exclaiming that she was guilty of the murder of her husband rin that she had influenced him to work against his will and was with difficulty restrained from hurling herself into the pit Taken altogether the message of Governor Willson is a commendable paper and we believe from its tenor that he has the welfare of the whole people of Kentucky at heart and will soar as he may be able individually do what he conceives to be the right things for the advancement of the best interests of the Commonwealth The taking of charitable and penal institu tions out of the mire of partizan politics of which he is in favor will meet with the commendation of all true friends of the same and the strong language he in condemnation of lawless ness and night riders evidences his intention to do the utmost in power for their suppression The new Capitol the Governors Mansion redistricting the State new eletion law publicity of campaign expenses temperance the Attorney Generals office v the dog tax tax reforms etc all matters touched upon in the message and the most of c them are treated in a conserva tive and common sense spirit The document closes with quota tions from the notable speech of v Justice John M

and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second lase umatter WED JAN 2J 1908 DEMOCRATIC TICKET For United States Senate Gov J C W Beckham THE SENATORIAL FIGHT How is the Senatorial race Will Beckham be elected What do you think about the situation These are questions asked and heard every day The daily pa pers are sought as soon as they reach the country and the Sen atorial situation is perused It is the chief topic with the people and just how long it will contin ue depends oh a few Democrat ic members who are delaying if not preventing the election of the Democratic nominee not on ly making trouble for their par ty but killing valuable time at the expense of the State We have never idolized Mr Beck ham in fact never voted for him for bee ing a Democrat and believing in majority rule have cheerfully given ourjbest efforts in his in terest in every campaign in which he was a candidate We still believe in the same policy I and cannot see a single reason why any Democratic member of the Legislature should oppose him Mr Beckham was nominated by his party participating in a primary His ability to make a creditable representative- is f not questioned his nomination is not contested and his Democ racy not doubtedand every Democratic member of the Legislature is notz only honor bound to vote for him but commanded to do so by ten thousand Dem ocratic majority and while they may offer their reasons for op posing his flection yet they can not escape the responsibility un der any retext other than a disregard ofja large majority of the Democrats of this State who nominated him The charge that Republicans voted for him in the primary can not stand before reason for there is not a Democrat in or out of the State whose defeat has been more ea gerly sought by Republicans than has Mr Beckham They did not want him nominated they do not want him elected and his defeat would make them ihappier than any other one thing within the limits of a possibility Personal spite nor personal preference should not lead any true man to oppose and resist e decrees of his party and it isI to be hoped that those who are so doing will see the mistake and injustice of their position They believeathat they are acting for best interest of their party but that is not a question for any Repre sentative in this matter The Democrats of this state by more than ten thousand majoriy elect ed Mr Beckham and Jt is the plain dutylffe ryi Democratic memitOIratif f th tt Jelect litr 1 f II Iv Ilc Xaj tl t a s 4f f JI1 tt ljt MnoOctvti r t f1 T Party organization cannot exist when a minority seeks to block and defeat a majority and the welfare of the state must suffer in every division that affects any large number of people We did not favor the primary did not want a selection of dur candi dates a year in advance believed it a costly mistake we entered our protest at the proper t im and pointed out the breakers as we saw and believed they would come under such a course The issues arising out of such action turned the tide and brought what we feared and believed would happen With the follies and failures of ffte recent past still glaringjus in the face no Repre sentative should seek to override the will of the majority but the few who are preventing the elec tions are doubtless true devoters of the CourierJournal that has found pleasure in a persisent criticism of Mr Beckham while he was Governpr and since his nomination has rejoiced in every sign that pointed to his defeat The defeat of Mr Beckham would not make the Courier Journal better but happier What will happen we can not say but we believe in delivering the goods just like they were promised BIG SHAKE UP Representative W H Strange a Republican has offered

behooves every citizen ofithe State who loves its good name and desires its prosperity to stand firmly and un compromisingly for law andjorder We can not afford if we are loyal to the commonwealth to be the apologists of crime and of those who wilfully and with premeditation engage in it There has been no condition of things and none can possibly arise to justify or excuse or even palliate the acts of the men who in different parts of the State under the cover of night and in disguise and with arms and torches in their hands have shot down citizens and burned property I know but little about the merits of the controversy between the tobacco seller and the to bacco buyer but I know this much and every other good citizen knows it as well that the differences whateverr they may be do not and can not jus tify arson and murder These things can not remedy any evil that exists or that can be imagined It would be much better that no tobacco should braised e within our border than that Kentuckey should be advertised as she has been and that the men guilty of these crimes should go unpunished If there is no remedy where is it to end Are the safe guards of society to be torn down and trampled under foot i and every man to become a law unto himself Are the midnight riders with identity concealed to be the custodians of our liberties and property Are the torch and the shot gun to su persede the processes and remedies of the law Is the incendiary to execute justice in our midst Gentlemen these questions require no answer to honest right thinking men We know how one crime leads to anotherspreading like a contagion through the body politic until society at large is under its baneful influence and while we have no trouble here of the kind indicated I call your attention to it now that you may consider it and fortify yourselves against its appear ante or against other disorders which may if it is not arrested follow as it legitimate offspring no safety save in the taw 6faithfully and fearlessly administered and the law itself is of no avail unless there is a public sentiment back of it which will express and impress itself through our grand and petit juries have a statute against pools YItrusts and conspiracies and the penalty for its violation is a fine of not less than five hundred dollars nor more han five thousand dollars or imprisonment- or both fine and imprisonment It ap plies to all corporations doing business in the State and to any pardnership o ompany firm or individual or other association of persons and to agents officers or directors of corporations It prohibits any combination to reg ulate control or fix the price of any merchandise manufactured article or property of any kind It also prohibits any combination limit production Farm products however by a recent act can be pooled by farmer for the purpose of obtaining a greater or high er price for them In addition to the above penalty if a corporation organized under the lawsI of the State is convicted of a violation of this law it forfeits its charter with out further proceedings ilf a foreign corporation is guilty of an abuse or misuse of its corporate powers or becomes detrimental to the commonwealth or its citizens its priy ileges to do business in the State can be revoked v So you will see we have Imws whicl apply alike to corporations and individuals How much better would it be if any ofourpedpie are suffering trot tWJw cll should be redressId tiitrfli y should appeal to the law instead of be y coming the violators of law themselves by the perpetration of such crimes as have recently disgraced this State It is unlawful for persons to confederate or band themselves together and go forth armed or disguised for the purpose of intimidating or alarming any person or to do any felonious actor to confederate or band themselves together and go forth for the purpose of molesting injuring or destroying any property real or personal of another person persons or corporation and whether the same be molested or in jured or not those who so offend are guilty of a felony- Government exists for the protection of persons in life liberty property and the pursuit of happiness and we justly boast that in this government established by the wisdom the sacrifices and blood of oaf fathers its protecting care is over all and reaches to the highest and humblest person in the landThe law knows no distinction of class or condition but when administered in its true spirit even handed justice is dealt out to all alike The spirit of the mob is the spirit of anarchy It does not protectit de stroys It does not build upit tears down It is antagonistic to organized societyit is subversive of the law and of the rights and liberties which can only be protected by the law In the name of Kentucky a nom that is a charmed word wherever tru manhood is at a premium as an official and a citizen I appeal to our juries grand and petit andover them to good citizens to be true and faithful to the law in its execution and in obedi ence to it The New Hampshire branch of the Federation of labor has passed strong denunciatory reso lutions in opposition to Secretary Taft as as Presidential candi date in which it declares itself as unalterable opposed to his nomination and that it recog nizes in him through his public utterances and judicial decisions and opinions the archenemy o organized labor that he is the capsitalistic power that the writ o injunction which he upholds with other iniquitous measures never was intended and never should be applied to deprive hon est industry of its personal rights that it objects to his methods of campaigning as any one mans man however exalted and influential may b e his master or widespread his own support and endeavor and that it is deter minedly and irrevocalby opposed to his candidacy This coming from such rockribbed RePubli- can territory has a significant and ominous soundDanville Advocate i A Cure For Misery I

whil ing away the time in this beautiful land of fruits and flowers on the East Atlantic coast Buena Vista is a station two miles from Miami a town of ten years with a population of eight thousand It is bounded by a beautiful bay and the Miami river It can justly boast of fine hotels churches business houses and other fine improve ments It is not surpassed by any city for fine streets shaded by the beautiful palms and other varieties only adapted to this country and climate Mr Flagley is the principal owner and operator of the only railroad starting at Jacksonville and terminating at this place a distance ofS66 miles He is triow constructing an extention to Key West a distance of 150 miles with but few breaks The extension will be on trussels through the bays and lakes em enating from

fishing for a livelihood They go out on the ocean in their boats throw out their hooks and lines baited with a white rag The boats keep moving all the time and the King fish see the white rag and make a dash for it Men stand ready to pull them aboard which is not so easily oone as they weigh from fifteen pounds up We have all kinds of vegetables and fruits adapted to the cli mate Mr Garnett has a fine orchard of various kinds and I can step out and get fruit fresh from the trees I must mention the fine roads as this locality is underlaid with rock which has to be grubbed out at a cost of 50 per acre before the land can be utilized for any thing so rock is plentiful and not hard to break up and put on the road bed which is perfectly level then they put on a trac tion crusher with ponderous wheels three feet broad which crushes the rock packs it and leaves it looking full as well as your concrete walks in Colmubia As Col Newt Coffey remarked that I was only on speaking terms
