now in progress in this V county in cooperation with the state v Geological survey is to make a study fa jof the soils and agricultural conditions I f in general with a view that the agri cultural experiment station may be 0able to suggest methods by which systems of perminent agricultural may V be introduced and maintained lSamples of the surface and subsoil are taken from the various soil areas ory types of the different counties of the tstate and are sent to the agricultural experment station at Lexington where they are analyzed chemically arid physically for the purpose determining p rtheir chemical and physical nature physical analysis is of less impor tance than a chemical It tells some thing of the capacity ofs soil to holds moisture which is in many parts of this Country a limiting factor in crop pOr duction While a chemical analysis does not k tell the amount of available plant food f present in a soil its importance lies in- V the fact that it tells the total amount and also because it reveals the factt t whether or not any of the limiting elements of plant food are lacking rAfter a chemical analysis of the soils thave been made and the results tabu f lat d and published the publication will be available to any farmer free of I charge who will have his name placed 4onthe mailing list at the agricultural Experiment Station Lexington Ky v The Coming Teachers

healthy and enthusi astic inland city From day to day the people have grown on me till mow at last I can write of my stay as a pleasant memory I came here a stranger to all butI soon found that for which every loving heart pants fellowship At no time during my stay can I call to mind a single incident which is unpleasant to remember The people of Columbia in general have captured me with their kindness hospitality and ease of living and as I go from you I feel qualified to impart that with which you have im pressed me 1 take occasion here to ay 1 have sought to appreciate your every kindness I remember with a thankful heart your every smile and would be ungrateful indeed if 1 were to forget to say I simply love you that is attitude toward sin has been an uncompromising one I have courted no sympathy and asked no special favors aU of which might make me rediculous in the eyes of some but in the eyes of others manly couragous and loyal I have not sought to win a single pet 1 have not cantered to public sentiment but have tried to stand out in the open for a clean life an open Bible a friend to the friendless and salvation to the lost Somehow it is like breaking up home ties to leave you It was here my wife was born and our brief stay in her old home town quickens the sweetest mem oryof childhood It will be impossible for me to take all of you by the hand and say Goodbye but if I were a voice that ould be heard throughout Adair county upon the day of my departure I would cry Finally brethren farewell Be perfect be of the same mind live in peace and the God of peace shall be with you J C Cook SS Convention at Cane Valley The Sunday School Convention at Cane Valley was largely attended last Saturday all the schools in the county being represented The hospitality of Cane Valley and the surrounding coun try was in evidence Notwithstanding hundreds of men women and children were present there was an abundance of every thing good to eat and after every body had fully partaken the fragments would have fed many more During the session of the Convention a number of excellent SundaySchool talks were made showing that the work in this cause was rapidly growing The song service during the session was of special interest People of Columbia do you believe you are doing right by sending your laundry to other towns when it can be done here neat and nice The Laundry needs all the patronage of this section and if it can get it will soon be on a firm base This enterprise is one of worth to this community but can not last without full patronage

been made for some time that there would be an all day meeting at the above named place the fourth Sundays in June and that Vertis Williams of Still Water Okla would preach Bro Williams was reared in this community and was formerly a member of this church and the very large audience that greeted him that day shows the high esteem in which he is held bv his old neighbors and friends His mother and a part of the family still reside in the community His father QN Williams died at the present home in 1900 Bro Williams has been preaching for the Still Water people for 11 years It was his first and only charge He has had quite a num ber of calls from other churches but prefers to remain with that people His two little boys Paul and reston are with their grandmother The subject Sunday morning wasI Home Ehp 52230 He introduced his sermon by relating an incident that occurred between a young preacher and hinselfin Okla Hesaid- a young preacher just from College and seeking a location was asking hint about work and asked for his assist ance in securing a place Bro wil- liams told him of several country churches that would be glad to have him once a month though they could not pay him a large salary they could support him The young man replied that he did not care to preach for a church that preaching only once a month was required as he did not think much good could be accomplished ina church of that kind Then Bro Williams said to him Young man let me tell you something I know a little country church away back in the hills of Kentucky that has been in existence a long time with preaching only once a month and a great good has keen developed Jn the world from her existence There is a man in Moberly Mo preaching for a larg church who was reared under the influence of that church Another is preaching in Phoenix Arz another at Liberty Ky another at Moreland Ky another at Columbia Kiand one at Still Water Okla Dont ever speak thus of the little country churches that have preaching only once a month He discussed Home under four heads The rela tion and duty of wife to husband and husband to wife of parents to children and children to parents Love must be the dominating principle not only for the place we call home whether that be a palace or a hut but for each other and while the husband and father is to be the head of the home he is not to be a tyranical ruler but a leader and gentle governor He spoke of the importance of beautifying the home by giving it some finishing touch es with shade trees smooth mown yards flowers c of the importance of cultivating and developing the love by continued acts of kindness and sympa thy on the part of both husband and wife and to express their affection for each other as of old It was a good profitable sermon and if followed out will stop many divorce suits There was a bountiful dinner on the ground prepared by the good people of the community and was much enjoyed by the people and many baskets part ly filled were carried home The writer could not remain for afternoon service on account of a call to preach a funeral that afternoon May Bro Williams Jive many years counItrypleasure of meeting the dear ones

The Public Health The time is here now when every citizen of Columbia and all over the county for that matter ought to be looking at the condition of his premises I have had several warnings put in the papers about the breeding places of mosquitoes 1 have asked the people to have their houses screened in order to prevent flies from spreading disesses- I have called attention to the filthy condition of quite a number of privies I have called the attention of the city authorities to the condition of several our of streets and alleys but all these warnings seem to have fallen upon un listening ears The season most dan gerous to the public health is now commencing The time for house flies to get in their unsanitary work is now here I have seen no rain barrels covered except at my own house I have seen none of the privies under consideration cleaned Many of the people seem to be anx iously inviting an epidemic of sickness I am anxiously trying to avoid sickness lam doing my

is The Wrong Word Editor of the News Permit me to correct what I regardi as erronotfs in your statement weeks issue as to what I hold or teach about baptism j have never in all my ministry said or even thought so absurd a thing as that baptism is ESSENTIAL to salvation ESSENTIAL comes from the Latin ESSE which means TO BE When one talks about the ESSENTIALS of a thing he ought to mean the materials or ES SENCE of which it CONSISTS Tie ES SENCE of pardon is the gracious ACT OF GOD To say that anything else is ESiSENTIAL to the forgiveness of sins talk nonsence And by the way this is one of the reasons why so much controversy has been indulged in on this subject people are too inaccurate in speech to make themselves understood exactly on an abstruce theme What 1 teach is that if baptism is in any sense a meanse of graceif the Master had any gracious aim in appointing itone must observe it to obtain the gracious gift which He has connected with it and to fulfill His purpose In this sense it is NECESSSARY In this sense it is IN DISPENSABLE That is we have no right to dispense with it Even if it be a fact that 6od may forgive the neg lect of it that does not make it right for one to neglect it and to PRESUME TO DO so because He is good and for giving would be to exhibit a very un dutiful spirit And mind when I say NECESSARY I am speaking of a MORAL NECESSITY I am speaking of that compelling sense of love and loyalty which will not let one find peace of conscience till he has done whatever he is sure his Lord has commanded him to do W K Azbill From the reading of the above it will be seen that Mr Azbill criticises us for using the word essential in making the statement that he believes that baptism is ESSENTIAL to salvation He would have had no objeetionto our article if we had stilted that he be lieves baptism NECESSARY to salva tion We do not care to discuss the word We cheerfully publish Mr Az bills article and refer our reader to the dictionary Last

5 v A young man not many years r ago began calling ona girl he kept her out on the front porch late at nights he made life a torment for her if she looked at any other man and finally he married her t He is poor and her father is in fairly good circumstances so that for the first time in her life she began to taste privation and selfdenial She cooks for him cleans sews mends and slaves for him and their two children Why has this man put this woman in a position where she f must experience such hardships in addition to his tyranny Because he loves her This is a common interpreta tion of love the sweetest word in the language Because he loves her many a man has brought many a woman down to a hell which she has J loyally striven to turn into a heavenWoman is so constituted that so long as she believes herself loved and appreciated she can forgive anything and endure any thing and still be happy A wife is the only laborer on earth who works for her board and clothes and is expected to be grateful for the privilege But even she appreciates a trip and a day off row and then The husband who doesnt economize on expressions of affection or stint his wife on praise may do as he will without fric tion or argument So long as he doesnt sink the lover in the husband he need fear no rival He may forget every other rule but if he remembers this all will be well Even when the steak is leather and the bread a cinder he must merely remark that the meal isnt quite up to her usual high standard of perfectionand it doesnt happen again Every woman is an idealist and she will break her neck try ing to live up to what she thinks a loving husband expects of her There are worse things than work It is generally the lonely hun gryhearted women who are try ing to amuse themselves and feed their starved lives on the froth of parties and the dry husks of club papers Sitting alone at night waiting fora husband to come home doesnt thrill a woman a bit more than it would a man But any woman can be broken f of the club habit or the society habit by a husband who will stay in of evenings and try to enter tain her in a spirit of love any thing like that of courtship days Louisville Herald 4I The Cotton Crop The following summary of crop conditions throughout the cotton belt has been issued Almost unterrup ted advance v i ment was made by the cotton crop during the week The only ex ceptions are in restricted districts J in Georgia Arkansas and Okla t homa But in Oklahoma some advancement was made because thee rainfall was not so heavy or widespread East of the Mississippi there are aonly local complaints to mar the general note of improvement Many localities and cones and- nM epqrfc the best conditions in af JL years Blooms have appeared in generI ally well cultivated The waters in the overflowed bottoms except on Lower Red River are slowly receding The farmers expect to replant the lands largelywith corn Seed for replanting with cotton has be come scarce and besides the serson is quite late Except where the plant has not been under water it looks healthy arid well and only proper weather for cultivation is need ed to put it in good condition even where in the past the rainfall has been excessive A general gain in growth and cultivation was made in Texas The cotton in the low lands that was replanted looks well Weevils have appeared but are less num erous than last year and no fear is expressed of immediate dan ger from them The Oklahoma Way The following report on an Oklahoma bank failure shows the way they do things in that Democratic commonwealth The International Bank of Coalgate was reported to the bank commissioner by one of his examiners a few days ago for violation the banking law of the State particularly in its manag ing officers borrowing from the depositors money The bank commissioner at once visited the bank in person and found that the total deposits were about 37000 of which the owedIElzy owed over 4000 in other words about thirty per cent o the deposits had been borrowed by the two managing officers The bank commissioner demand ed that they immediately replace the money They failed to do 215Ithe state banking board received instructions to immediately pro ceed to pay all approved deposits iln fortytwo minutes from the closing of the bank the bank payiapproved deposits By Friday evening six per cent of the de positors had appeared proved their claims and received their money By the end of the second day ninety per cent of all deposits had been paid A few depositors who live in the coun try dont seem to be in any hur ry about drawing their deposits One farmer is reported as answer ing over therural telephone that he is too busy to come after his money but will want it in a week or so In the meantime both the president and the cashire have been arrested for the violation of the state banking law and are held under heavy bond There will probably be no loss to the state guaranty fund and no assessment required on other banks Liquidation will likely reimburse the state fund within thirty days The loss will probably not exceed the capital stock It Cant Be Beat The best of all teachers is

thousands of bushels of apples garden stuff and other produce much of it being left to rot on the ground Something like this can be said of every city where unemployed people are found in large num bers If all of the unemployed people who could get work in the cities if they wanted it were earning wages and if all who cannot find employmentin the cities would seek it in the country there would be a decided decrease in poverty not only in a hard times period but at all periods The marvelous possibilities of the millions of acres of vacant land in this country are only be ginning to be

Boyle county line met death in a fearful manner He had been at work in the field and when the dinner hour arrived hewas called to the house by his wife Only a short while la ter while Mrs Southerlandwas busy about the house she heard the rattle of chains on the out side and going to the window she saw a mule pass rapidly by dragging prostrate form of her husband At the barn where the mule stopped the unfortun ate man was extricated from the chains but life was extinct He had been dragged for something like half a mile and when an ex amination was made it was found that his neck had been broken and his head and body badly cut and bruised He was a son of Owen Southerland and was 30 years of age He is survived by his wife to whom he was married about two years ago It is be lieved the accident was caused by Mr Southerland getting his foot caught in the chain as he at tempted to get on the mule and that the animal became frighten ed and ran to the barn The be reaved wife

of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Foatoffice as second class mail matter WED JULY 8 1908 DO YOU BELIEVE IT For several years The News has advocated a graded public school for Columbia and vicinity It has time and again called at tention to the merits of such an institution from an educational point of worth and also its finan cial aid to the healthy growth of the town This position was tak en not for personal profit but for the best interest of the public as appeared under existing cir cumstances The News is still in favor of such a move and trusts that every thoughtful reader of its columns who has an interest in the welfare of this section has read Judge H C Bakers article in last weeks issue Judge Ba ker refers to the law passed by the last Legislature and shows that it is not a question of avoid ing a tax but a matter as to whether a graded public school or a high school be established within Columbia He favors a graded school and shows that the law can be fully met by such an institution We can not see any reason to justify delay in this important matter and our citizens should take this up at an early day Beyond question such an institution properly managed would result in great good to Co lumbia and when its workings have been tested would be heart ily and unanimously approved To our minda graded public school wouldas outlined by Judge Baker prove one of the greatest blessings the town has ever received imi portance and the great worth to Columbia arid Southern Kentucky in establishing a female school rather than have two schools ad tong both sex Whether or Denominations now con ools here would r we have not a school 1 for Beautiful Grounds New Auditorium An Ideal Camping Place i IIAn Unexcelled

such advantages as to attain the great est possible results to the students e and would appeal to the in telligent parents so strong Gs to give such schools tremendous prestige over similar institution admitting both Particularly would this be true with those who desire to send their daugh ters to school where they must board and be under the watch care and guidance of others There is not a female school in all this part of the State Thousands of dollars are paid out every year to other sections by parents who want the blessings that are vouched safe in a school for young ladies Such an institution would not only draw from its immediate surroundings but would strongly appeal to the best judgment and most liberal pat ronage throughout a large part of our State It would give Columbia prestige over any town in South Central Kentucky would mark it an educational center draw to our citizenship the most desirable families and make the pulse of business beat to a faster firmer and more progressive tune The M and F High School is in fine position as we see it to launchout on this great work It has been shifting in its man agement from year to year and consequently is not tied to a large patronage If it would prepare its halls secure a good solicitor and direct all its energies to the education of young ladies it would mark the beginning cf great prosperity in its life and become one of the greatest fac tors in the advancement of this section We merely give our opinion and believe that a close and thorough investigation will convince any one of the great libIeraland its beneficial effects on Co lumbia We trust that those charge of that institution iIi1 give this suggestion consideration that the people of Columbia will also realize in this the great worth of such a school and that it maybe accomplished With a hoQlsIyoung and also lor young men Colum bia would take on its most active and lasting growth The following article on the coming Circuit Judges rack in this district was taken from the Tompkinsville News The paper 1IenryoA+ fr 1 A lfjffr f r- H who is an avowedcandidate While the election of a Circuit Judge in this the twentyninth judicial district is yet a long way 9 off there is nevertheless a considerable guess work among the people as to whom all the candi r dates on the Republican ticket will be So far as we know no ons has made any public announce ment of his candidacy but from the amount of fencing figuring and fuss made by the friends of certain gentlemen it is easy to name some of the candidates We presume that Judge Baker the present incumbent will be a can didate since we have heard noth ing to the contrary We under stand that G M Miller of this place who was defeated by a nar row margin by Judge BakerisI planning another fight for the position when the race comes on It is very plain to be seen that Atty James C Carter of this place and formerly County Attorney of Monroe county will also be in the fight when the time arrives The Republicans will capture the office dead easy of course and as Monroe is the largest Republican county in the district and has never been honored with furnishing a Judge p it would be nothing but right for the district to give the judgeship to a Monroe county man Over in the Lebanon district an effort will be made by the whisky men and Republicans to defeat Judg Thurman for re election to the office of circuit Judge In our judgment Thur man will carry every county in the district save Marion and it is not certain that he will lose that county Judge Thurman has made and will continue to jnake a splendid official The business people in a judicial dis trict are more interested in having a competent and impartial Judge than they are in the sentiment of those who desire to sell whiskey The Denver Convention is now in session and by Thursday the Democratic candidates for Presi dent and Vice President will have been named It is gener ally conceded that Mr Bryan will

Incompetent Administration The 50000 spent by Gov Willson in keeping troops in the field in many instances without cause and without justification goes a long way towards explain Statebtreasury Instead of the econ omy in the administration which the Republicans promised during the campaign we are having unprecedented extravagance and instead of the treasury full and overflowing we are now con fronted with the possibility of an extra session of the Legislature to make some provision for the current expense of the govern ment This is one of the notable re sults of Republican incompetency There has been no marked change in conditions in Kentucky as compared with the conditions prevailing under the administra tion of Gov Beckham There have been no enormous expenditure for public purposes and already the Republicans have emptied the treasury The record of the business management of the States af fairs under Gov Beckham and his Democratic associates leaves no doubt that with the election of the Democratic ticket last year the States finances today would have been in a very differ ent condition Democrats have the capacity and the business sense to conduct the government Republicans every time they conItrollaCkIingThe trouble at Frankfort isj that there is no competent official head to affairs The Governor isi without business experience without training as an executive and he has already demonstrated that an entire lack of executive ability is his most conspicuous trait What is lacking in the chiefexecutive apparently is not to be supplied by any of his subordinates It is unforunate for the State but it is nevertheless true that her affairs are in the hands of incompetents Lexington Gazett Some Superstitions In Armenia fast both of ne cessity and of choice are very general and strictly observed The most common length of time for abstinence from food is seven daysThroughout this long period the Armenians imbued with religious fever partake of no food Only in the case of the young un married woman is any concession allowedThe men on the sev enth day of their fast are allowed by old and sacred custom to eat a little cake freelmixedi with salt By this means dreams of pure sparkling fresh water will be certain to visit the young man A strange superstition is con nected with these visions The f dreamer will see a maiden ap pro ch the stream and she will t carry him a jug filled to the 4 brim with sparkling water 14The dream maiden will be the I1 girl whom Fate has decreed he shall marry I This strange superstition is I found in Armenia

first constitution and all the machinery of state government was put in operation Often since that date different features of the state have been eulogized and more recently some features have been deprecated The faults are due to faulty men and not to the Omnipotent Creator As a masterpiece of nature or of the Almightys handiwork No state in the union equals Ken lucky There are hills and dales and groves and dells and mountains treed and rockribbed and caverned such as no state in the union can claim Of rivers one there is rich abundance and not without its abundance rare scenery and places of recreation amusement and instruction For 700 miles the shores of Kentucky are laved by the beau tiful Ohio The river touches three greatstates on the north but at every point that it touches any of them there is Kentucky claiming jurisdiction at low water mark on the other side But because the majestic Ohio there are the seven rivers that rise near the same point in eastern Kentucky and coursing across the state give her people health and food and general commercial and sceinic advant agesEven the great Mammoth cave any of the seven wonders of the new world is comparatively un yetIit maybe by one most attractive river routes down the Ohio and up Green river that can be found any where or by rail withoutmuch delay or by rail and river Along the Ohio are stretches of r hill cliff forest and urban scen ery that is little if any short of- the famed Hudson Every one of the seven rivers of the state has its attractions historical and natural and it is almost a crime for Kentuckians to re
