feeders who have tried it agree that there is nothing that exceeds alfalfa in supplying protein the elements in the ration designed to produce bone muscle and blood The two fed together come about as near furnishing a balanceed rae tion as any two feeds can do Corn balances the alfalfa and the alfalfa the corn Kentucky and Tennessee lands will grow both of these crops successfully Wet not grow as big crops of corn as are grown in the corn belt nor as big crops of alfalfa as are grown in some of theC Western States but we can grow both and our prediction is that in the future it is the lands that can most successful grow both corn and alfalfa will be thet most valuable in the United StatesIThe big State of Texas has just gone through an unusually exciting primary election The primary was to select delegates to the National Convention at Denver Senator Joe W Bailey was a candidate from the State at large and a bitter fight was made on him The opposition to him was engendered by his al leged connection with Waters Pierce Oil Company a branch of the Standard Oil Company The returns from the primary how ever show that Bailey was elect ed by a considerable majority All delegates were instructed for Bryan Mammoth clover is very similar to red clover only it is much larger and more luxuriant i growth It is better adapted toj seed with timothy as it is a little later in maturing and both ripen more nearly together than do red clover and timothy It is not quite so well suited for clay soils but when it is once established it will grow profitably on soil of that character It will not stand grazing quite as well as red clover as it is primarily a mead ow crop As a hay it contains about the same amount of food elements as red clover Buy a farm young man No matter how small it may be buy a farm and prepare it so your land will provide you a living Twenty years from now the man who owns hjs farm will be inde pendent and will have at his livelie hood The expansion ef manu facturers can not go on forever and there will come a day in thi- countr s Y as there has in others when the supply will exceed the demand and the only absolutely sure occupation will be farming Buy a farm while one may be had- C iIf a man follows your advice and succeeds he will never admit that it was Ytthat p followeda v v v f IMPROVED ROAD MOVEMENT One of the drawbacks to the progress of rural development is bad roads This fact is becoming a generally recognized and in nearly every state in the Union there is manifested a tendency to remedy this evil by state ap propriations for the establishment of good public highways the Architects and Builders Journal Among no class of people is the need of good roads re alized better than by the farms and others engaged in agri cultural pursuits Until within recent years these same people opposed the idea of the state issuing bonds to raise money forC purpose for by a false con ception of economy they reasoned that the cost of modern improv ed highways would mean an in- rease of taxas Since however they have had practical demonstrations of the advantages of good roads by the saving they afford in time and wear and tear of horses and vehicles no clsss of people is enthusiastic in their advo cacy It is not the farmer alone who is benefited by the building of good roads Others who for business or pleasure find it nec esssary to travel by public highways from city to city or from town to town appreciate the advantage of a smooth solid roadbed Like the railroad these viaducts are an incentive to development and it is demonstrable that wherever good roads have been established that section has developed in material prosperity and the value of property has enchanced This is par ticulary true of the suburbs of of large cities- Improved roads have proved themselves to be an attractive incentive to urbanites to pur dwellingsnModern demands in this respect have enlisted the attention of road engineers who have devoted their thought and skill in the con andstructionthey are built fromI scientifi- insteadplans of by the haphaz ard system which formerly pre vailed and which was invariably atttened by unsatisfactory re sults The introduction of improve- macadam and bitulithic paving has done much to popularize mod ern roads THE FARMER AND THE STATE The fullowing beautiful tribute was paid to the farm people by James Wilson secretary of agri clture and in it he gives the farmer a warning it would be f well for him to heed i I wish to make a plea for the American farmer for I belong to that class myself I believe that the farmer is of more im portance to the state than any other man and I think that the fact that the American boy- si loath to stay upon the farm of his father is a national menace The nation is becoming aware 1t I wroneg with ourt attitude toward the nlrt Yn f terY agricultural pursuits S The soaring prices wheat and beef have drawn our attention- to the subject for the stomach is great educator The time is fast coming when the common people wont be able to eat meat at all and poor people cannon even have pie plant Why is this because we have not instructed our boys in scientific methods of agriculture by which they could make a success of the farm As a result they are leaving for the factory and the railway shop where they can make more money and agriculture the most important occupation in the world is peI come neglected- I believe that you are doing an inestimable service to the youth of our land in teaching them practical occupations and 1 urge you to start the trend of migration back to the farm Thenormal schools of the southern states have already started the good work I want to see the girl who can cook a meal before she sits down in the evening to play the piano and I would be glad to see her able totake a 20mile gallop on horseback after she has done it It Reached the Spot Mr E Humphrey who owns a large generalstore at Omega O

stantly increases the dissentions in Republican ranks and raises the hopes of Democratic victory in the Presidential campaign TheI newspaper publishers in their fight on the wood pulp and print tariffs have put the Republican majority in a most embarrassing position They have placed the House leaders before the country in the attitude of deliberately pre venting a vote upon a bill favored by a majority and recommended by a Republican President The Speaker of the House and the chairman of the Ways and Money Committee are for the moment most powerful than the President of the United States and a ma jority of the House of Repre sentives and they are using their power boldly and ruthlessly ini the interest of an obnoxious monopoly at the expense of a busi ness which ranks seventh among all of the industries of the United States This course may be a political necessity but it is accompanied TheIof a high protective tariff and the extremes to which the Re publican leaders in Congress will go to maintain the protective principle More seriouspowever than this is the open clash between Congress and the White House The Republican party through the Republican majority in Congress has repudiated the policy of the Republican President No eulogy in resolutions or platform of this fact The party must take its stand upon the side of Congress or the President It now seems likely that it will nominate the Prsidents choice for the succession and adopt a platform in general terms- Roosevelt endorsing the administration and the Republican majority in Congress Such a course will mean that Congress is the real representa tive of the Republican party and that the party must go into the Presidential campaign upon the record of Congress rather than of the Administration ETown News r 1 Who

devoted to the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second clan mail matter a WEDIMAY 20 1908 It is not our mission nor pur pose to indulge in criticism nor to dispute with true and loyal Democrats but in defense of The News we are compelled to speak out in open court after reading The Glasgow Times of last week in which its able edi tor makes a short quotation from The News concerning Mr Wat terson and The CourierJournal in which we said Let the past be the past and make the best possible of the present With bitterness and eternal re sentment The Times holds Mr Watterson up before its readers in the worst light possible re counting his bolts of 1895 96 97 and 1908 and then states tt that these are the differences with popular demands in some of the campaigns of the past which The Adair County News lightly passes over Injustice to our position in justice to the common cause that all Democrats are enlisted in we can only say The News does not endorse the acts of the CourierJournal when it was bolting and floundering in the land of doubt and while it did not meet with our approval yet we have never believed it in sincere in its teachings timid or cowardly in its fights No man familiar with those campaigns can doubt that the CourierJour nal was one of the most power ful factors in bringing us defeat no Democrat should underesti mate its worth for or againts us The truth the whole truth is The News is not asking Demo crats to idolize Mr Watterson nor accept the CourierJournal as an infallible guide but to use a little common sense only and to accept the service it is now giv ing in that manner befitting intelligent political warfare Its power to hurt is freely admitted and therefore its power to aid ought to be the more appreciated when it is voluntarily given as it is at present Rank partisan prejudice has never resulted in good to the cause it represents never wins our battles nor adds to our strength The Times doubtless could better serve its party in county district and State if it could only forgive and forget Let the past be the past Instead of hitting the man who is now pulling in Democratic harness give him encouragement to pull harder We should be fight ing those who are fighting us and not be continually holding up the missteps of the past as we we saw them at that time The- News sees in the support of the CourierJournal not only help oI cally but throughout the entir- Itscountry power will be felt in every part of the country and why should any Demodrarfuse tg work voithsit or eef to ipi- ts ai efforts by holding up the ghost of years gone by The Times should turn its attention to reclaiming that magnificent Democratic majority so common liven in its home county it should seek to redeem its Con gressional district thatwent vi iting while it was holding up the sins of Mr Watterson Our plan is to accept zaid from any and every source oFL fered and instead of holding up a horrid picture of the past t see the futureS if possible We believe the year has come and the anStd tried who will sweep the cou try from East to West and from North to South and that man is W J Bryan supported by the able editor of the CourierJour nal one of the big four in the Denver Convention if The News only bad the naming The song has changed The dinner pail advancing price- expanding industries set to the music of Republican prosperity has been the chief stockintrade of the Republican press and ora tors for the last twelve years These agents of the G 0 P pressed the claim that prosperity was the stalwart child of Repub lican polices and that no panic or hard times could come while the country was under its control I and the Dingley tariff law opera tive Gee Slush What has happened What false prophets How can the people be longer fooled The party had made pros perity by the high tax system the party that blessed the civil ized world with money so good and so plentiful that panic could not come the party that claime- the credit for good crops an every blessing that the goo Lord gave the people at last is up against its own sin and folly robbed of its glory and disarmed of its most fearful campaign weapon prosperity If it is not responsible for the tremendous panic that has prevailed since last October who in the world is The effort to make the people believe it all over that it was only a little financial flurry of short duration can not be sub stantiated It is not over It still exists and more than a mil lion idle people and many more with reduced wages are up against its fearful effects Mr Towney that able Republica- leader in the lower house of Con gress does not attempt to conceal the true situation and point to tremendous deficits He i chairman of the HouseAppropri ation Committee and states that at the close of April the Treasury showed a deficit of over 50 000000 as compared with a sur plus of 55000000 a year before making a difference of 105000 000 He also stated that it is al most certain that the deficit at the end of this fiscal year will be 150000000 These are starting figures but came from an

earnest in seeking better political living then it is high time that they should be returning The meth ods employed in the convention at London the high handed frauds in the Louisville primary and the

Government aid for good roads is being agi tated and it is probable that a general law on thesubject will be passed by Congress in the near future But the law will most certainly limit its benefits to those States which are prepared to cooperate with the National Government in the work Mil lions of dollars may be appropriated by the National Govern ment for road improvement but Kentucky will get none ofit unless we have prepared ourI selves to cooperate with the Government Many of the States already have laws authorizing State aid for good roads and such States will get the money which Uncle Sam appropriates Shall Kentucky be left out She will be unless the proposed amendment to the constitution is adopted It may not be adopted unless farmers over the State take an interest in the matter Commence now to talk the mat ter up with your neighbors and show them the importance of voting for the amendment Farmers are the ones who will benefit most by the goodroads Farmers Home Journal The erstwhile Democrats in this county who became disgust ed with the socalled Democratic machine and went over to the Republicans in the hope o f thus putting an end to machine poli tics have had their dreams sadly shattered To use a homely phrase they jumped out of the frying pan into the fire They have found a political machine dominating the Republican party which could give the democratic machine all the big cards in the deck and then beat it at the game At the Versailles convention these same former demo crats tried to get some recognition for Taft but they were yelled and hooted down by the Fairj banks forces most of whom were blacks urged on by one or two white men and all in all they got a very very raw deal We suggest to them to come back in to the democratic party now that the
