PRELIMINARY RERORT y W the Geological and Soil Survey j in Adair County CountyNewsDear We have today completed theGeolog Iica1and Soil Survey of Adair county t The Geological formation in this county J range from the upper Cincinnati Rich mond Division Formation into the base of the St Louis These formations written in descending order are as fol I lowsiWaverly Formation I Ohio Black Shale Clinton Limestone Cincinnati Limestone and ShaletThe St Louis is found extreme South Western portion of the Icounty where it caps the high ridges from Keltner to Sparksville Very little of the limestone is ex posed but the heavy flint and chert waste on those ridges is from this formation and must cover a considerable portion of the limestone itself Possibly there may be in some places as much as 25 or 50 feet of the limestone The Waverly Formation in this region will aggregate ome 350 feet in thickness and forms the surface rock over the most of the county It does not po ssess the uniform character here that it does in its more northern outcrops and even in the county shows considerable i variation cInlimestone predominate in the upper portion and give rise to the best apri cultural land in that section The best I limestone land between Russell creek- and Green River also belongs to this division of the WaverlySThe main portion of the Waverly and especially the middle consists of flaggy calcareous shales with some impure limestone and is full of geodes hollow concretions with quartz crystals lining the cavities Where this phase of the Waverly forms the surface the soils are naturally poor It forms the sur face rock in the Flatwoods district of the southern portion of the county and I streamIbase of the Waverly in the North FThe of the county is a greenish the Linietta Shaleknown locally L as soap stone VIt gives rise tc poor soil and its pres nce isiusaflY Indicated by bare slopes ghiteisKiffl the shale has 4 1 to a Jrhite clay This is the Vliost lileHy sour e a clay with which lf cture emeirt Ustg for the other ingredient the purer grades of limestone sound in the county At the base of the Waverly in the northern portion of the county within one foot of th e top of the Black Shale the shale is thickly studded with phos phate nodulesthese are of varied shapes often as round as marbles and are practically pure calcium phosphate as pure as the phosphate rock mined in Tenn and indeed these nodules were formerly mined in the Duck River Re gion before the richer or rather thick r er deposits of the Mt Pleasant region were discovered These will be an important source of uI phosphoric acid for the farmers of Adair county when they begin to make their own commercial fertilizers or better yet begin to grind them and add as crude phosphate to their lands as the farmers of Ill are now doing de pending upon decaying organic matter turned under with the phospfiate to furnish the acids which will render the 1 phosphorus avaliable These Linietta shales with the phos phate nodules invariably at the base will be found in the Valley of Casey Creek in the region about Knifley and CasesIof Bryant Creek A small exposure of these shales also occurs in the southern portion of the countyOn Big Creek beginning about DryII ish and more slaty in character The phosphate nodules are not so uniformly ft present in this section THE BLACK SHALE 3035 feet thick is as the name in dicates a blackbitumerous shale hold ing as high as 12 per cent bitumerous matter and a source of oil and especial ly gas in many cases when struck under a deep enough cOver jItextends down

countyon Damron creek where within the area of the Clinton a maxi mum thickness of 1520 feet of it is exposed in the immediate vicinity of he creek under the more Clifty Clin on It is composed of shaly limestone purer limestone whitish in color and some shale When thin bedded the limestone are often sandy and ripple marked and suncracked showing that they were laid down along the flood plains of some vast stream near its mouth which stream was subject to periods of inundation alternating with very low water stages It was during these low water stages that the sun dried the limy and sandy muds and cracked them the next inundation filled in the cracks and covered the ripple marks with a mud which did not unite with the previous formed layer and hence preserved it intact with all its surface markings A full report will be issued on the- ounty accompanied by a geological map as soon as the results can be writ ten up and when published can be had from the Geological Survey C J Nor wood State University Lexington Ky Director iThe results of the soil analysis will also be published and issued as a bulletin by the Agricultural Experiment Station M A Scovell Director Lexington Ky

thank the good people of Adair for the cordial treatment we have received and the assistance that has facilitated the completion of the work The uniformily great interest shown us in the soil investigation especially has been most gratifying and a report of this carried back to the Survey and the Station will probably continue to in duce them to cooperate in this work in the future even more than they have done in the pastIArthur M Miller Prof of Geology State Univ rsity The School Law The article in the Adair County News from Judge Baker on the New fffliool Law has discouraged some of the citi zens who have led the light for the College here some have not taken it so seriously While there are few lawyers who are more esteemed by the people as a Judge and lawyer than he yet there has been opinions by other distinguished attorneys differing from him perhapshavehave arisen from this law before any construction of it is accepted by the people Should a majority concur with Judge Baker in his construction of the law the Legislature might perhaps be prevailed upon to repeal or amend the objectionable features of the law in such a way as to bring about the deserved results Or it might be that other changes might be made so as to remedy the wrong Dont let us give up the project but go ahead and surmount the difficultlesGreensburg Record We learn from Judge Baker that he sent a copy of his recent article in re gard to the establishment of a graded and High School to the Superintendent of Public Instruction and asked if such a school as was proposed would meet the demands of the law In answer the Superintendent says 1 have your favor of June 30th with inclosure for which I thank you This article is timely and your school will meet the purposes of the law Judge Baker in his article said the county could not avail itself of either of the private schools at present establish d here as they were each under denominational control He rests this statement on Sec 180 of tIle State Constitution which reads noWrraised or levied for educational poses shallbe appropriated ooF1lsed by or in aid of any church sectarian or dehominatipnal school C ForSale r r i i have four

reside in Columbia Adair County Should Wake UpI a ttto the Adair county line and at the progress now being made they will complete their contract during the Sum mer and Fall Adair county will only ave about seven miles to build to meet this road and no time should be lost in arranging to begin the work The Fiscal Court has already made an appropriation of 2500 for this work and a considerable sum as we understand has been individually subscribed and what has not been subscribed will have to be raised It is an enterprise in which our people should feel a deep interest and we trust that a num ber of live men will at once get to business A pike from here to Greens burg would not only be a feeder to Columbia but would help the county generally Adairs part of the road can be build without hurting the county or the individuals who subscribe to it but if we fail to act we will be the losers Talk the pike and get to business Only a Cat Last week some Drummer or some body else lost a

Ringmaster and Nearly AH the Feature Acts Are Put On By the Per formers From the Bluegrass State COL W B HALDEMAN SIGNALLY HONORED iy a Staff Correspondent of Louis yule Times Denver Col July 8 Never before in the history of the Dem ocratic party did Kentucky ever play as important a part in a national convention as she has here in Denver As a matter of fact it appears that Kentucky is running the convention Up to this time a brief sum mary of what Kentucky has ac complished shows that the Bluegrass State is once more the Democratic party of the nation When Bell of California was elected temporary chairman of the convention Ollie M James was the first of a committee named to escort him to the chairI Out of the officers of the con vention the secretary Urey Woodson the chief reading clerk James E Stone of Louisville and the parliamentarian Nathan iel B Crutchfield were Ken tuckiansIn fourteen subordi nate officers were appointdd from Kentucky placing the Bluegrass State in the lead so far as convention patronage was concern ed The resolutions adopted by the convention eulogizing Grovor Cleveland were dictated by Ol lie James and Col W B Halde man from Kentucky and they received a unanimous vote They would have been introduced by Col Haldeman had he not insist ed they should come from the Nebraska delegation Last night Charles W Bryan received a telegram from his brother W J Bryan in which he said he was much gratifiedat the unanimous adoption of the Cleveland resolution and request ed Charles Bryan to convey to Col Haldeman and to Gov Francis of Missouri who also seconed the motion his thanks P Ollie James led the fight on A the floor of the convention to S have the split among the Penn sylvania delegates which in volved the election of a national committee referred to the Com mittee on Credentials After at stormy scene the Kentuckian won out and it was generally recognized that in opposing Guf feys plan James was the person i al representative andspokesman for Bryan At the meeting of the Com inittee on Permanent Organization James B McCreary of Kentucky was elected chairman When the Committee on Rules r and other business met Col y Thomas Stuart delegate from fthe Tenth Kentucky district wasf elected vice chairman of thati fc committee and presided throughV T out its deliberajipns fO f fIt is generally conceded here- InJ r Denver that Ollie James cant Behave the Vice presidential nom iriati on for the asking Four hundred and ninety odd dele r i tes have already gone on rec fejimi and will vote for him ir vSv 3 rF rFw sayIso Although he is absent the dele gates to this convention look to Henry Watterson as Bryans most potent friend and adviser The whole story in a nutshell is that Kentucky is here with both feet and no question relative to the Bryan programme is finally agreed upon until such men as James and Haldeman have been consultedJames is the recognized rep resentative of Bryan in Denver and thus far the Kentuckians have not fallen down on a single thing that they have gone after This morning National Com mitteeman Woodson said We are not yet through Be fore the convention is over we will show that Kentucky occu pies a bigger place on the map than the delegates yet suspect although they are already pretty well convinced of Kentuckys presence Representatives James al though somewhat modest ad mitted that Kentucky was t bowl ing them over in splendid fash ion The Kentuckians realize that much of the States prowess is due to the leadership and na tionwide influence of the Congressman from the First Kentucky district who is easily the most conspicious figure at the convention The choice box in the convention hall was reserved by Nation al Committeeman Woodson for OII lie M James Mrs

and finished This is not the first flirtation maneuver made by the Taft wing of the Republican party toward the Indiana Senator since the recent national convention in Chicago Nor will it be the last directed in the direction of In diana leaders If there is any thing the Taftcontingent desires right now it is to win over the affections of the State which was SO discourteously and savagely Itewishes the Hoosier State to follow the Scriptural admonition and return good for evil But can you club a fellow over the head and then make him love you Can you ridicule a man sonelike Fairbanks and overlook no opportunity to revile and sand bag an entire delegation and yet bring them into line when you need them That is what the Republican leaders are trying to do in the case of Indiana They realize wasnbrutally outraged is the one State Thewcoming election is to be close The Republican ticket is in great er danger of defeat than it has been in for years Every debatable State counts The one debatable State of Indiana might turn the election Indiana is desperately needed It will be interesting to watch the developments in Indiana It will be an enlivening spectacle to gaze upon the hustling in high quarters to woo the stricken neighbortheal Is human nature capable of the forgiving and forgetting necessary as a condition precedent to the closing of the breach Louisville Times Since Mr Taft has been running for the presidency he has had 1973248 narrow escapes from violent death and sudden destruction The scenes have ranged all the way from Wash ington D C to Lake Baikal Siberia Some months ago the Taft press agent having rung all possible changes on this sub ject dropped it but he begins all over again in Ohio Nobody has any desire to see Mr Tafts life endangered

manages to make both ends meet When he has noth ing to eat he is a boneless dog He is not a cannibal he will not eat sausage He will not eat pota toes too suggestive of tubercu losis He is not dogmatic rather inclinod to be waggish He is something of a magician he can addwings to it and make butter fly He is no prohibitionist for he loves to rush the growler He is a firm believer in the saying that every dog has his day and he believes that every day is his He wears suspenders to keep up his pants He is inclined to he sociable he never sees anotherV 5dop unless the other dog seize

Remus The sudden death of Joel Chandler Harris removes from the Southland a man who was perhaps more widely known throughout the world than any other of our famous sons Un totby reason of his many folklore stories written around this picturesque old character was not a great man per haps as greatness is usually es timated His achievements were not of the spectacular kind that 11fromqualities of character He hid himself behind his work and his workspoke for him to the mil lions of peopleIAnd yet his work was great in the sense that it touched the heart of the multitude It brought wholesome sunshine and entertainment into the lives ofj all who came within its atmos phere and did for the South what all the histories and descriptive books could never accomplish It transferred the beauty and lovableness of the South to all Sections of the Eng lishspeaking world and awoke the interest of many who longed to see for themselves somethingj of the life that he so picted iTo those who knew him Uncle was loyed for his own sake He was a big farmer looking fellow with a ruggedt kinkly face and the generous loyal heart characteristic of his idealldHebe missed with a grief that nothing can assuage The whole South mourns the passing of Joel Chandler Harris We shall be lonely without his stories his gentle humor and his quiant conceit His was the childI nature grown with him into adult

for although Gov Willson has been in office but seven months there has been spent for the troops over 40 000 and there is no telling how much more will have to be spent before the trouble ends This amount does not include the pay roll of last week and it is thought by the end of this month the amount paid out for the troops in the tobacco districts will roundup a clean 50000 This amount is nearly three times what was paidiJoutlaby Governer Beckham during theI last four years of Jhis administration although he had the Hargis trials to contendwith and the same tobacco trouble in StateItroops many county to patrol the districts unless they were requested by the county officials of the county in which they were sentThere is a new phase in the night rider troubles that has developed during the last two weeks and it is likely that there will be no cessation of sending troops into the counties where they had been previously sent There were one or two reports made that attempts had been made to capture the men who had preached on the night- riders or men claimed to have belonged to the bedscrapers and barn burners If this method continues there it will be necessary to keep the troops in the field all through the summer and as theltrials of the men arrested and indicted for night riding continue it is not unlikely that it will benecessary send more men into the field than have been sent into the counties to go on guard at any time when the seemed to be at its height Frankfort Journal u Good usbands Men who are married and think it is smart to treat their
