trust will soon be able for work We trust that we have learned the lesson the Lord wanted to teach us and wemay be able to reconsecrateourselves to Him 1We thank our many friends for the- love and sympathy they have manifested to us during all this long suffering- in so many ways Ih waitmg and watch ing at the bedside or in sending flowers and delicacies Then last but not least we thank pur friends for the prayers that have been offered on our behalf We wquld not forget our Masonic brethren who so faithfully stood by us in our hour of need But to God we give all the glory for He is the

that they had com pleted the line within one and a half miles of town k They level as they go- He found a great many people in Casey county who feel confident that the proposed road will be built It

water and mud are not in my way when it is fordable but we do like to see a fair and impartial deal with all parties concerned especially when it is the peoplesmoney that is being used to pay for certain improvements being made in an about this town Last Thursday night the city council met in extraordinary session to decide on a better system of lights An or dinance was passed locating a number of additional 50 candle power lights on the various thoroughfares and streets of the town The place where each light is to be located is specifically des ignated and it appears a majority of the lights are too in a section of the city which is already comparatively- well lighted to other portions of the ton and in the vicinity of the homes of some of the members of the council By hard work I suppose or some other unaccountable reason one more light was located on Cyille pike near the bridge which spans Russells Creek which will make 4 for that street in a distance of mile when the other main streets have six or eight in the same distance Does this kind of bus iness look like a fair deal all round I say no because it seems like most of the towns money is expended for the benefit and convenience of certain peo ple while people living in other por tionsof the town wade the mud and grope along in the darkness and they pay their taxes just the same It is certainly a mistake about putting another light on Campbellsville street from the fact that the people living in that section of the city do not need any lights or any thing else because weve all got pretty good eyesight and tan swim when it becomes necessaryThank gentlemen for that lonesome little light which will be swung in the bre zeat the bridge but we dont need it and a motion is made and seconded that it be moved to the head of Burkesville street F McL RESOLUTIONS JOHN T SHELTON V Whereas our Heavenly Father has removed from our midst one of the most beloved members of our Sunday School one whose attendance

Wednesday BY TILE Adair County News Company INCORPORATED CHAS HARRIS EDITOR Democratic newspaper devoted to the interea of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair andadjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED r MARCH 11 1908 Hon D C Edwards the pres ent Representative in Congress from the Eleventh district won out at Corbin last Saturday the Republican committee having met there for the purpose of fix ing the manner and time for nominating a candidate for Congress A resolution was passed unanimously that said nomination be made by primary election Then came the time and June the 6th was fixed Caleb Powers friends were in evidence and asked that the date be fixed for August the 4th The vote stood 10 to 8 in favor of June 6 Another test came when a place I was to be named to select d egates to the National Conven tion Middlesboro and London were put up the latter winning 10 to 8It was noticeable that Powers friends were Fairbanks men while Edwards were Taft supporters L A most horrible and distressing holocaust occurred in the suburbs of Cleveland Ohio last Wednesday forenoon the burning of a school building in which one hun dred

tressed out of their senses and the whole city was in mourning xC was one of the greatest calam ities that ever occurred in the United States Only six days until the Ligisla ture adjourns Up to this date but few measures have been passed hence the coming togeth er of this body of lawmakers will prove quite expensive to the State They have not as yet repealed the dog law and Repub licans who spoke against it before the election until they be came hoarse have concluded that it is a good law The Republican papers sup porting Fairbanks claim that Senator elect Bradley coming out for the Indianian was the worst blow that has been given Secre tary Taft Bradley takes the po sition that Taft could not win were he nominated If Mr Bradley could control the Legislature and be elected U S Senator it looks reasonable that he could have had the dog law repealed to whiCh his party stood pledged but he didnt do It The temperance people who pinned their faith to the Repub lican platform pledge to
