Times of last Saturday afternoon contained the announcement of the death of Mr John B Montgom ery which occurred in the hospital in that city at 530 a m He was admitted to the hospital on Thursday and rapidly grew worse until the end came being afflicted with a complication of diseases The deceased was born and reared in Columbia his lineage being as good as Kentucky blood makes and it was gen

delivered by Rev C MV Chumley over the remains of John T Shelton certainly was comforting to the weeping and distressed mother brother and other relatives Again the action of the Faculty classmates and Society of Mary ville College was beautiful Resolutions touching the character the esteem in which the deceased was held and flowers in great abundance from the same sources were evidences that the deceased was loved in that noted institution and that his passing had brought deep sorrow God works mysteriouslyno one can understand his mandates yet we are told by the clergy that He does every thing in His own good time andwhat ever He does is for the best We see an oldman upon a bed of affliction where he has lain for years unable to help himself ready to meet his Savior even daily praying for the hour of dis solution but he is permitted to suffer and live We see a young man full of ambition with comfortable surround ings the pride of his mother the life of the home a bright future in front of him cut down and yet we are taught to believe that the sickle was ripe and we must bow our heads in humble sub mission to Gods ways for they are right All Christians believe this butt these

nalrThe information has reached the chairman and secr- Etary of every Republican con mittee in the llth Congressional district that Caleb Powers will get out in time to make the race t for Congress this fall D C Edwards has been trying ever y way in his power to get W W f Byerly district chairman to call a primary immediately This Byerly refuses to do Byerly has always opposed Edwards and is especially sore at Edwards now f because Edwards secured Napier Adams nominations for Clerk oi Court of Appeals and by so doing prevented Byerlys nomi nation for a State office I suppose you also know that anrt has alaysbeen unfriendly tc Edwards In the late campaign Edwards made a few speches in the dis trict for the State ticket and these speeches are pronounced to have been the worst ever doubtless because it was not a very pleasant task to preach his own funeral STICK TO TiE FARM While it is true that a ma jority of the successful business arid professional men of our cities came from the farms or were more or less closely associated it is just as true that only a very small proportion of those who = have succeeded as well or nearly swell as if they had stuck to the plow But of those who fail we hear but little onlyof the few who succeed Only about 6 per cent of the 100 young men who goup to the city attain prominence and 25 per cent do fairly well and the other 70 per cent pass through life occupying greater or less menial positions many of whom are not treated as well appreciated as much by their associates and those over them as were the slaves of the South None of the 95 per cent are likely to attain the influence possessed by the aver age of the 100 who remain on the farmAGED en 103 YEARS Mr James Robinson who died some days ago at the home of his son Mr Meritt Robinson in this county near the Washington county line was probably the oldest man at the time of his death in the State of Kentucky He was born July 9 1805 making him a 103 years old at the time of his death He had been mar reedtwice his wives being sisters and both preceded him to the grave He had twentyone child 1 rep bit whom twelve are living 78 grandfelrldren 68 great grand children and two great great grandchildrent He was a very i religious map each day offered up a petition to thereat White Throne For t Et i twelve Vears of his lifeflwfe Robinson i j 1 f had been a cripple was blind for 17 years and for ten years wai deaf Mr Robinson was old enough to have seen all the presidents of the United State but one and was a goodsized lad almost large enough to shoulde a gun in the war of 1812 His mind was veritable encyclopedia of events and the development of his country within the time o his recollection must have beer marvelous as he satin his blind nessandreviewed the incidents of other days Harrodsbur Hearld CATCHING nEAT That colds are due to C catching heat is another one of the curious paradoxes due to the modern investigations of disease and by colds is meant all the acute inflammations of the respiratory tract including pneu monia Eskimos never h a ve pneumonia at home but very nearly all die of it when they come to New York This disease is now the most fatal one in the heart of Panama Pear states that none of his party suf fered from coughs and colds in the Arctic but after their return they have all had such diseases Tropical colds are the persist ent forms of bronchitis found ii- white men in the tropics and sc hard to throw off or cure It- is well to inquire now that the benefits of cold air are being rec ognized whether our Winter colds are not really due to the un wholesome heat of our houses which are hotter in Winter than Summer Ifso we do not Snatch cold when weleave the house but catch heat when we enter it Every new fact seems to point to the necessity ofa reform in our methods of overheating houses THE ONE THING VALUABLE There is one thing in the wide universe which is really valua ble and that is character By this I mean a confidence in the bosoms of those who know you that you have the power the capacity and the disposition to confer happiness on others of course will include a power over yourself so that you can govern and restain your own wishes and thus take care of yourself and it will imply that you have the power and have the disposition to exercise that Itr7is this that makes the character of the Divine

living Judge Hargis may have deserved censure dead his body should be left to the eter nal repose of the gravehis name should be untouched by thear rows and slings of hate But after all it matters little what Republican Editors say about Fargis and assassina Lion Their utterances serve only to disrobe inconsistency and to stand it before the public eye in its shameful nakedness The same pen

Democratic newspaper devoted to the interests of thecitr of Columbia and the people of Adair andadjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED MARCH 4 1908 r It is not the purpose of the News to indulge too often In crit icism and not to do so at all ex cept when it appears that good may result The truth is that i hadratherP lant a flower than to pluck one prefers to praise rath er than censure and to point out the good instead of the bad but its course leads through the un pleasant as truly as through the pleasing paths of life and in both instances in its own vayj it tries to perform its duty It is not pleasant to hold up the tendencies too bad in any of th channels that tend to unsettle business and picture the dark omens of the near future but talk will not restore prosperity or wipe the pangs of hunger and fear from the thousands already out of employment and penni less It takes a change in the policy that prodnced it and the sooner thisjlis realized the sooner the conditions will change Dis carding the cause of the panic and present business stagnation the people will find that the trouble tis not yet over The f Presidentand his associates can not escape a large share in the responsibility and his inclination f to direct the whole universe seems to troubledtsome features that will probably lead to worse conditions in indus trial shrinkage and its train of woes that follow The shrinkage in railroad receipts is forcing the companies to cut the wages of their employees and while this is a condition clearly justified by their reports yet the Pres ident is busying himself in ah in vestigation to see if the L N Company is giving equitable treatm e n t atto its employees This act this asof the President tends to bring resist ance from the many employed and possibly plunging this coun try into thef deepest and most is t fearful labor troubles ever known in thd historyfof railroading If a strike is averted it will be

1 i h Fi t f tr1a c The Senatorial deadlock was declared off last Friday when ex Governor W 0 Bradley received the number of votes necessary to elect him Four of the bolt ing Democrats voted for Mr Bradley andLthus ended one of the warmest contests that has been on the political checker board for a long time in the State So far as we are able to see the Republicans have but lit tIe grounds for rejoicing for while the aforesaid gentleman is a man of brilliant mind yet he i not credited as a moralist His living and freputation does not measure up to the high standard advocated by the antiSaloon League that has been hoodwinked and led far from the realiza tion of its cherished dreams That he will ably represent the State is not questioned by us and rf his party is elated overt this crowning freak of political maneuvering it matters not a whit The fight is over and the Democratic nominee defeated by Democratic deserters Mr Beckham vas entitled to the sup port of every Democratic repre sentative but he tell by the way That the party is now freer and stronger to go against the com mon foe we do not doubt fore every manresponsible for its organization hasfallen beneath the power of disapproval Reorgan ization can not now be avoided and no political rings are in ev idence There is nothing now to obstruct a progressive united movementfand bring the party back to its old standing and the State to its proud position of years gone by We have no tears to shed8 0 over this defeat as tears would not change the conditions and while our sympathy is withthe man who falls under broken party instructions we charge it up not to our party but to the four bolting Dem ocrats whose purpose seems to be to take care of rum gin and brandy The latest political freak in the

accomplished are be ing considered by Mrs William Thaw and her lawyers on the ORe side and young Mrs Thaw and her legal advisers on the other Numerous conferences have al ready been held and negotiation have reached the point where the only obstacle that remains is the amount of money which the Thaw family shall settle former chorus girl and artistsI modelIStories to the effect that Thaw was about to divorce the woman for love of whom he committed one of the most sensational mur ders of modern times gained fresh impetus yesterday following the announcement that the young woman had been the un chaperoned guest of E R Thom as the racing man and banker at the Cafe Boulevard on Mon day nightfAs a matter of fact it has been arranged that young Thaw and his wife should separate some time ago Plans are said to have been discussed de ore the begin ningof Thaws second trial for the murder of Stanford White At that time an action for di vorce to be brought by the young Pittsburger was thought to be the best way out of the disagree able domestic tangle This was tentatively agreed upon the amount of money to be settled upon the pretty young wife being allowed to go undetermined until the conclusion of the second trial In the mean time she consent ed to go qn and act her part in the drama which has occupied the attention of New York and the rest of the country forAneai ly two years She was to visit her husband at the Tombs everyday and the members of the Thaw family in return were to maintain at least an outward show of friendliness toward her and that she lacked for nothing At the conclusion of the second trial all pretense at friendliness between the young woman and her husbands family was thrown aside Harry Thaw was not- yeryfar on his way to Mattea wan before

ample consideration it is a mat ter of great importance to the development of the individual A man who had been em ployed in an office where progressiveness and good feeling prevailed left to take a posi tion at a much higher salary with another concern But he quickly learned that the spirit of the new place was not like that of the old one Men quar reled with each other over trifles overIbearing either made up of criticising each other or of matters equally unwholesome The man soon discovered that the additional salary was more than offset by lthe unrefming influences and he was glad of an opportunity to return to his old position at his former salary Many men get started in the wrong kind of business atmos phereand do not always realize that there are places where things are very different and not appreciating this they do not make the offer to get into a better atmosphere or to purify the one they are in Instead they spend a large portion of their lives under conditions as unwholesome as a closed room in Summer When a Iiman gets a better offer in salary let him not fail to give attention to the moral atmosphere f titIDayhavea far greater luenceoni his career than

man is found in every community who thinks he can not afford to be a subscriber to a local paper says an ex change Does he take out his pencil and figure in a cool meth odical way the cost of a weekly paper at one dollar a year Does he calculatingly prove that this expense is but two bits for thir teen weeks eight anda third cents a month less than two cents a week a quarter section of one cent a day Does he in fairness to himself make comparison of this newspaper ex pense with his tobacco bill or other indulgence which he might forego with profit Not much That daddy dollar which pays for the local newspaper has been dangling before his eyes and growing bigger at every glance until it assumes the proportion of a Ferris wheel in his imagina tionNo citizen can afford to be without a local paper and all of the newspapers in his neighbor hood for no one paper can give of all the happenings of human interest It is safe to say that 5 a year represents the actual value of a local newspaper to the areIideas advanced and suggestions given the value of which to theI reader is little thought of As a I business proposition the local newspaper is worth many times i the remarkably low subscription price asked saying nothing of the question of sentiment UD s A MODEL CITIZEN Lincoln Bill Vanarsdall the village blacksmith of Eldorado in this county is a man with a remarkable record especially so for a Kentuckian He is now seventy three years old and only twice in his life has he ever tasted whisky the last time being when he was a lad of twelve years He has never been inside of a saloon nor used an oath He fought all through the civil war and the nick name of Lin coin Bill was given him be cause he was one of the first and most devoted supporters of Abra I ham Lincoln He moved to El dorado forty years ago and is the only human being black or white now living there who was in the villiage when he came Fiftyseven years ago he joined the Baptist church and has al ways prided himself on the fact that as much religion goes into hiswork as into his daily life and the result is that he is counted one of the best and most reli able smiths in the yIehas a large family and the only death among them was that of an infant many years ago Har fodsburg Herald V t rrTf S1 ciLxi S J k tJJ C M WISEMAN SON Diamonds and Precious Stones Jewlers and Opticians H Special
