which he goes and to this part of the country generally Not exagerat ing Rex Paull is worthy of the high est appreciation in any country and unless some accident happens will prove an investment to

side of the corporation of Co lumbia By order of the court it is left to the Supervisor and Magistrate to determine on the roads and in what manner it shall be used We believe in piking the roads and

this district in the year 1908 On one or more of the principle roads of this district which will subscribe and secure the greatest amount of money and labor to assist us Thet saidsubscriptIon to amount to lidt less than 25 per cent of the amount to be expended by the county No subscription will be ac cepted as a bid for less than a continous half mile of pike The county to do the grading of the roads and the metal to be put on according to specifications by contract with the lowest and best bidder As different roads having more or less travel require different spaeifications the specifications for each road will be agreed on by the Supervisor and Magistrate together with the person or persons raising the subscription for said road The citizens on each road that desires to

theories as to the growing of corn are right as to their individual farms and therefore many are quick to condemn any proposition that conflicts with their ideas as to how corn should be raised But- there are a few rules founded f i ft wYVjr on recent investigation and ex perience which are unquestion ably correct and generally admit ted to be true among which are the following Deep plowing enables the soil to absorb a large quantity of water and in some sections it has beenV found that by rolling the land or packing the soi 1In the furrows after plowing more moisture is retained The success of the corn crop largely depends upon how much water of the spring rain can be retained in the soil Iso as to afford a supply of mois ture after dry weather begins It is true the corn roots feed near the surface but there are also roots that go down after the moisture that is stored below and by judicious cultivation the mois ture can be brought up to the plantsCorn is a good feeding plant and is never injured by too much manure or fertilizers if proper cultivation is given It is also a cleaning crop as the cultiva tion required clears the ground of weeds and thebland for a crop that is drilled or seeded A good start early in the year is important as the young plants not only then get aheadof the weeds but also be comes firmly established before the dry season begins thus as sisting them to mature previous to the liability of danger from early fall frosts It is an old and 1 true saying that the prepera r tion of the soil is half the battle r and it will apply not only to corn but with all other crops For corn the soil should be in good condition during the entire growing season Always stiring the ground to the depth of a few inches so as to disturb the roots as little as possible especially after a rain r avoids baking the soil kills the weeds and grass prevents water from escaping assists air and warmth to enter the soil while the fine loose earth also absorbsj a certain amount of moisture from the atmosphereEx CORK s There has been but little tobacco set in this neighborhood There was but few who had ground ready There is said to be but about one tenth of a crop this year It has been a year since the whiskey election in this countyV and to my knowledge there is as much as ever The SundaYSchool at Hickory Ridge i progressing nicely with Bro Coakley as

S HARRIS r EDITOR Democratic newspaper devoted to the interest Sr the city of Columbia and the people of AdaiJ and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second TClM mail matter WED MAY 27 1908 r Pursuant to a call made by the Democratic Executive Commit tee the Democrats of Adair county are hereby called to meet in mass convention at the court house in Columbia on Sat urday the 6th day of June 108 at 2 oclock p m for the purpose of choosing delegates to rep resent Adair county in the State convention to be held in the city of Lexington Ky on the llth day of June 1908 which conven tion will elect delegates to represent Kentucky in the National Convention to be held in the city of Denver Col July 7 1908 for the purpose of nominating Dem ocratic candidates for President and VicePresident GORDON MONTGOMERYChairman Sow any fair minded man who believes in an open honest politi cal course who believes that every section of our great com mon country and every interest should have the same opportuni ty under the laws of our land can endorse the acts of the pres ent Congress we are unable to see or to understand There is not a doubt that the people throughout the country believe that the Publicity bill should become a law and yet that measure has been killed by tacking on an amendment meant to reduce Southern representation The demand for a change in the tariff is universal except from the protected industries but that has again been dodged and a false o ea entered to fool the people as Ithey have heretofore been fooled A strong effort to play into the goodwill of the great shipping imterests by subsidy can not be endorsed by the average voter for there is no reason why the large carrying ocean vessels should be paid an excess over legitimate freight rates establish ed by the vessels of other coun tries If the ship owner is to be made a favorite and draw money from the government then why not the farmers who feed and clothe the world The principle is wrong and its operation would be grossly unjust Again the effort to create an elastic currency by the asset backing gives the bankers or a certain class of them latitude for broad opera tios in times of close money mat safetyJandguarantee the elimination o f panics The truth is that the Republican majority in Congress has tried to play politics and play 3Sf 3 F3ErI a weak hand so weak that noled minded man can conscientiously endorse wt iJWe 4 desire tott inform Thef isj gow Times that The News has never been classed with the Illiterates and reptiles simply be cause it has not worked on the extreme end of censure and abuse J of those who take a different po DemocraIt or Republican That The s has kept the faith no one will doubt that it believes in appeal to reasonrather than prejudice can not be disputed and therefore Mars Henry has not been provoked to pour out his vile of wrath on it as has been the case with others This tour e is not in keeping with the spirit that has been so manifest in this State for tHe last twelve years and has resulted in the creation of much bitterness and strife The News realizes that it takes longer to heal a wound than to inflict one that it is better to fight the enemy than a friend that every man or every publica tion can not be expected to see alike nor do alike and that we must be=as reasonable with oth ers as we would have them be with us The fact is the distant past ought to be left to the dark ness of the years gone by Work together when possible and dispute only if dispute we must over the issues of the present and their effect on the future Jtfthe charges made by Mr Matthews and his friends are true as to the political condition in this district how in the of common sense can they vot to continue such methods and a the same time openly declare for honest living Mr Matthews statement is a strong indictment against that part of his party which controls and yet he states that he will be found in line do ing his best There can be no ex cuse offered to justify such ac tion if in reality he believes in an honest fair living No man of any district or party nor no set of men are under any political or any other obligation to en dorse frauds thefts and debauch ery The man the set of men who have the moral courage to fight the bad in their own party to revolt against it if necessary can not lose the confidence of the best people and after the smoke drifts away will be properly ap preciated No compromise with dishonor is a motto that will win in the long struggle There is more at stake or ought to be than merely being in the bandwagon The Democratic State Conven tion will be heldin Lexington June 11th Adair county will be entitled to 7 votes in the convention Fairbanks will enter the Na tional Convention with 36 in structed votes but none from Kentucky Tafts nomination is a certain ty as he has 591 instructed votes 100 more than necessary to nom inate E3H 3E30E 3E 3 3t3 LEXINGTON GETS TUE

Great Giver ofall things for the blessed privilege which I enjoyed last Sunday 17th inst visiting Old Clear Spring church where I went to school 58 years ago when I was only 6 years old I met with only 4 persons who were school mates withjme then towit Bros Nathan Murrell M D Grider Mrs Sarah Barger and Mrs Ellen Blair We met with a very large congregation which was very orderIy and af ter song services led by Bro Esco Stapp and a very able sympathetic prayer led by BroI Nathan Murrell we preach for about 40 minutes and oh how sad we did feel when we looked over that crowded house and saw but 4 persons with whom a we played 58 years ago on that the most dearest spot on earth The circumstances suggested the mortality of the human race about which we tried to talk After services we all went out and the good sisters opened their baskets and boxes and spread their table cloths and a better and more plentiful dinner I never saw and I believe that after about 500 persons had eaten that there was as much left as when the Savior fed the 5000 men be side the women and children in the Desert My love and good wishes to every one that were there and if on earth we meet no more it is my sincere prayer that we may all meet in the great beyond where sorrow and sighing will be done away with forever C M Deener uITILE WORLD POWER Mr Bryan brought up the subject of world power in his St Patricks day address and he was right in maintaining that this nation has been a world pow er for many years and that its strength has come from the fundamental ideas of government planted in American soil Whatever the military needs or the military policy of the country may be its power lies in its millions of free citizens The possibilities were realized by in telligent foreigners even before the civil war and when that war put away forever the danger of internal strife and disunion the hopes of those who longed toi witness a failure here were shat tered With full play given the energies and activities of the inhabitants with an immense do main richly endowed by nature with the unequaled attractions for emigrants with the growth that was recorded after each decade there was no necessity for any peculiar demonstration of force to prove that the world power had been acquired A foreign conflict may have emphasized the fact andelicited comment that indicated a change of opinion abroad but it is the facts and not the opinionsthat count It may be interesting to know that a Frenchman who writes for a Paris review recog nizes a strength that he never recognized before The revolu tion
