Columbia Chapter No 7 It was the annual election of officers a goodly number being present After the regular order of business the election was held and the names of the Companions chosen are published elsewhere in this paper At the close of the installation Companion Horace Jeffries stated that he had a little personal matter to bring before the Chapter and that he would ask Companion James Garnett to retire for a short time He then took up Companion Garnetts Masonic correer reciting his advance ment in the Blue Lodge and the Chap ter eventually becoming the Grand Master of all the Masons in the State of Kentucky He spoke of Bro Gar netts untiring energy and his fidelity to the cause of Masonry and his devo tion to both the local Lodge and local Chapter and he felt that as a token of brothorly love and the high esteem in which the Chapter held him as a man and as a Mason that a manifestation of such feelings should be brought out in a tangible way He then spoke of an idea advanced and made known by Companion R F Paul to several of the members a few weeks agoto present Companion Garnett with a hand some solid gold thirtytwo degree watch harm Bro Garnett having reached that distinction in Masonry The suggestion met the hearty ap proval of every Companion present each member expressing his approval in the most earnest and complimentary termsCompanion Garnett was introduced and conducted in front of the altar by Companions Myers and Lewis He was fronted by Companion Horace Jeffries who in a well worded and touching speech presented the charm Companion Garnett was taken wholly by surprise and for a few minutes he could scarcely speak his heart over flowing with love for the token of friendship manifested by the Compan ions as he said who had so faithfully stood by him while building his Masonic carree His speech throughout was touching but when he said holding the thirtytwo degree charm in one hand so 1OxtgL live I will wear it dividing time with this one holding up a Knights Templar charm given tome by my sainted mother for the love she had for me the pride she took in my advance ment and the high respect she had for the Masonic Fraternity brought tears to the eyes of a number of the Companions When the Chapter dispursed it was the universal expression that the meet would result in much good for Masonry Peacock Colts Will V Leave for Missouri It is known to quite a number oif t Adair county people that Mr U S Haynes of Clarksdale Mo purchased a bunch of peacock colts from yarious parties in the county during our Fair at 125 to 150 each to

White House Washington September 5 Senator Robert L Taylor of Tennessee familarly known as Fiddling Bobis in Washing ton fora few days fresh fro the Western country where he sized up thepolitical situation and is prepared to assert that the masses are talking and thinking about Bryan and it looks r mightily like Bryan in the White House for the next four years Ihave just returned from a trip through Texas Missouri Oklahoma Kansas Nebraska and Indiana said the Senat- otonight I have been lecturing at Chautauquas six nights a week m You never heard of the politics there is oufthere No bodys mad though everybodys in the best of humor I would sit about after I got through my little platform business and listen to what the people had to say of course now and then putting in a word on my own account The people dont mind saying what they intend to do and the sentiment for Bryan is something unusual I was a Presidential Elector in 1884 and an Elector in Tenn essee means more than it does inmost states for there a man is expected to get out and run for the office as he would for any other office I stumped the state for Cleveland and in 1892It is my deliberate judgment that things look brighter this year for Bryan than they ever looked for Cleveland in either 1884 or 1892 Judging by the 1 way the people talk you under stand I feel confident that Indiana is going Democratic Bryan will carry Nebraska and upon my soul I believe even Kansas will go Democratic While in Kansas and other West ern states I heard large number- of men talk this way Ive been a Republican and have always voted the Republi can ticket but Im going to vote for Bryan Weve tried to down Bryan in every way because we thought he was not safe but he will not be downed After both his overwhelming defeats he has shown himself big enough abso lutely to dominate the Democratic party and keep up a big en thusiasm for himself in all parts of the country Of course Id vote for Roosevelt if he were running but as he is not mj going to support Bryan U Republican Prodigality Philadelphia Record says fi The last session of Congress i with the revenues falling ol ey ry month increased the appropria tions about

paper somet months ago 0 F G Day has a very interesting arricle in the Philadelphia Saturday Evening Post He says Five years ago Abraham Adams an Idaho ranchman while prospecting in Alaska ran across a small patch of wheat There was no way of telling how the grain happened to be grow ing there The seed may have been dropped by a bird or by an Indian or by some straying hold hunter only one head of wheat of unusual size remained Intact and Adams preserved it After his return to Idaho1 Adams experimentedwith his find The first year he gathered even pounds of wheat from the one head The second year from the seven pounds he harvested 1545 pounds in a ratio of 222 bushels to the acre Next Adams has his wheat tested at the Idaho experimeatal station They pronounced ita good hard wheat He has alJ ready tried It both as winter wheat and spring wheat I and found it jeciually productive and hardy lit the lJof iSO fhey Ranted the f 545 pounds aud the D tyear harvested f 3 OOJ Dounds Satisfactory tests later r were andaft r ther Aa1tBl Qt ther country iifiir the acre and even more under special care This sounds fabu lous when the worlds average yield is 12 bushels What will be the outcome Mr Day asks in awed tones Here is a new wheat yielding up gradr suitr able for immense areas If all America had planted Alaska wheat this year our crop alone would have been five billion bushels Suppose the American crop through the discovery of this marvelous plant were to be multiplied by ten what would be the result There would be patent rights restricting the use of the seed It might thrive throughout Europe India and Egypt and in Chinese and Russisn Asia What would happen to the worlds wheat mar- kets What would America do with its huge anuual surplus now one of its surest sources of revenue from Europe Or suppose that this Alaska wheat should prove sutiable only for those western and southern areas where it has already been successfully tested and the wheat crop of the United States rose from 725000000 bushels as in 1906 to 2500000000 to fix a random figure how far could foreign countries go toward ab sorbing the American surplus To what price would wheat fall Thirtyfive cents Twenty cents At what price could it be grown profftably At what price could be the effect on the railroads which odly two years ago were glutted with too much traffic Would Europe have to abandon wheatgrowing even under traffis especially designed to foster domestic agriculture The mere suggestion of such a change in the production of one of the worlds primary food staples leads to limitless conjecture The overproduction of this necessary of life of universal use would certainly affect the the whole face of agriculture and probably of transportation sr Be Honest s If

guarantee for bank depos itors is a good thing for the de positors the safer you make a mansI money in a bank the more comfortable ne will feel and the more money he will put there But we believe that it is just as good for the banks as it is for the depositors James B Fogan the Presient of the First National Bank of Chicago says in a phamphlet that he has written on the subject that the losses last year to National Bank depositors was one twentysixth of one per cent this is not quite four cents on every hundred dollars Using four cents on theh ndred dollars asa basis lets see how much the banks would have to pay to the government to secure the guar antee of its depositors against loss It would be 4000 on 100000 deposits A bank that now has 300000 wpuld only have to pay the government 120 00 a year This would unqestionably be the cheapest insurance possible Fire insurance on property worth 300000 would not be less than 3000 Burglary insurance which a great many banks carry on the same amount of money would be 1200 Banks insure their buildings against fire and the money in their vaults against burglary and pay many times the rate that they would have to pay to insure their deposits against loss If the bank building is not burnt by fire the bank gets no return from its insurance If the safe is not blown up and the vault is pot robbed the bank gets nothing from the burglary insurance but for insuring its depositors it makes an investment which will pay a handsome profit Any bank with 300000 deposits would be perfectly willing to pay 12000 a year for a guarantee that there would be no run on it by its depositors This is a pro tection they are certain to secure by the Government guaranteeing their deposits But there is still another way in which the banks will be materially helped It will swell their deposits enormously It will put into banks million of dollars that are now hid away and make available for the busi ness of the country its entire cir ulation If it should in rease a banks deposits which ate now 300000 by 50000 the bank by loaning 40000 of this at six per cent would actually make 2400 on its investment of 12000 for Government guarantee It cer tainly is a good thing for the banks as well as the depositors E Town News Why a WorldLanguage The advantages ofaworld language are indisputable With out it every man must be con tent to express himself in his own tongue and every man who needs to know what has been said upon the subject in which he is especially interested must of necessity master half a dozen other languages And this isthe

Pres Labor Got A Stone We asked the convention foi bread and they gave us a stone said President Samuel Gompers of the American Federation of Labor in discussing the treat ment given organized labor by the recent republican national convention The plank adopted on the subject of injunctions MrI Gompers said is nothing more nor less than the affirmation for a statute law authorising the issuance o f injunctions Our contention is that there is no law upon the statute books authorizing or warrenting the issuance of these extraordinary injunctions They are never issued when no labor dispute exists between workmen and employers They are only issued when such a dis pute exists They are never is sued against any citizen whether they be workmen or in any other I walk of life where there is na labor dispute I We hold that the law drvs not change because a dispute arises between employers a n d workmen All we ask is to be regarded upon an equality Le fore the law with all other citi zens We ask no immunity for any one guilty of wrongdoing whether he be workman or other but we must insist upon the con stitutional guarantee of equality before the law We will be sat sfied with nothing else The decision of the supreme court in the Danbury hatters case declared the labor oganiza tions trusts when as a matter of fact labor organizations are voluntary in character and form ed for the purpose of protecting and advancing personal rights The labor organizations deal in no product whether of the hand or of the land they are simply associations to protect and ad vance the interests of men and women who aim to conserve their personal rights their personal freedom The trusts are combi nations of men dealing with the products of labor The workmen and their power to labor can not be distinguished from each other A trust can dispose of its material products move and trans port them to any point on earth without affectiong the personal rights and the human liberty of the owners of labor products You cant determine the rules governing the labor of working people without affecting their personalities their bodies their minds their very souls W e asked the republican convention to declair in essence for the en actment of the law granting human right and human freedom and it wholly failed to meet the requirements of a n intolerable and unjust a n unAmerican situation In this instance no relief was either declared or promised The other measures which we asked the republican convention to adopt are of a material character The two which I have mentioned i wolves principles

the In crease in quality t eredIn other words intense farming making a few acres produce more than has heretofore been gather ed from mauy in a haphazard slothful way Year by year the farmers are realizing theworth of doing their work well prepar ing their ground thoroughly be fore seeding Such a process is absolutely necessary for good results in every crop but more especially in small grain for it never receives any more culti vation The News is especially interested in seeing the farmers of this section lead in the ad vanced methods of farming and to receive the reward justly due progressive people It has con willimeetoperation of our most progress ive farmers throughout the county and submits the same for immediate acceptance and a c tion It is as follows That a farmers club be organized and known a s The Adair County Farmers Club and that each member contribute as much as one dollar to said club and that 25 be given the farmer harvest ing the most whe tona given number of acres in the year 1909 The same way may apply to other crops as the judgment of the club may deem wise But sincejt is too late to thoroughly securethe active support of good farmers throughout the county the News offers to raise a fund for this purpose and will give 500 to start it on the following plan Anyone living in Adair county who will produce the most wheat on two acres of ground in the year of 1909 ground to be measured and wheat weigh ed will receive 500 plus all amounts received by the farmers who will join in this proposition and pay one dollar for member ship None but members of the club to contest Send the News 1100 to be placed to the credit of this fund and then fix and sow two acres in wheat and win the prizeif you can Any amount received over 2500 will be given to the farmer producing nezt toi the highest amount on two acres Act at once if you want to join in this little contest and awaken an interest in intense farming No one connected with the News will contest for the prize but will join in the contest for the production of wheat Fill out the following blank or some thing similar Farmers Club Columbia Ky Enroll my name as a member of The Adair COuutyj

a good many of the tax payers in the Car v Valley district to further condemn the action of the road officers in expending the road tax In the beginning I want it distinctly understood that I am a friend to the road officers they are honor able gentlemen I dont impeach their honesty and veracity but rather their partiality r If I am correctly informed the ha contracted to give thre hundred dollars to rock thre hundred yards on the same road from Cane Valley to the Greens burg road Oh extragant Ther isnt a better dirt road in the Cane Valley district and more hands assigned to work it than any other road in said district and perhaps but few tax payers north of Cane Valley never say the road and north of Cane Val ley the largest tax payers live My information is thai it is the duty of the road officersto adver tise the road they want repaired and let it to the lowest bidder but they let itto the highest bidder so they ignored the law in that respect f Now our roads north of Cane Valley are in a deplorable con dition and we have never had a dollar of our road tax expended on any road we travel nor likely to have We desire an equal expenditure of our road tax on some of our roads that need it badly All our roads north of Cane Valley are in a worse con dition today than the roads they have contracted to give five hun dred and forty dollars on five hundred and forty yards We have remonstrated we have sup plicated to arrest the extrava gance in the expenditure of our road tax Have we anything to offer upon the subject Nothing Shall we check the unequal ex penditure of our road tax by ir resolution and inaction Shall we acquire the means of a less expenditure of our road tax by lying supremely on our backs and hugging the delusive phamtom of hope until our road officers have expened the last dollar of our road tax on the favored five hundred and forty yards No perish the thought forever it is preposterous and contrary to the Monroe and Bryan doctrine P H Bridgwater Good Roads The average cost of carrying a ton of goods a mile by lake is eighttenth of a mill and by rail seven and sixtenths mills The average cost of carrying a ton of goods a mile on firstclass roads is said to be seven cents and on common country roads twenty five cents The latest reports made by the Department of Agriculture for 1904 shows 2151570 miles of public roads in the United States of which 714 per cent wereimprovecL In old populous arid rich States such as New York Pennsylvania Illinois Michigan improvements were reported no less than 10 per cent of the public

railroad freight even one quarter they would feel tha there indeed was a burning issue Saturday Evening Post The cost of trans ortation is but one item although an iten sufficient in itself to cause the question of good roads to occupy a place among the very first in stead of among the last of the problems considered worthy of general discussion and pressing for needed action by the large majority of the counties in every State Good roads mean a de crease in the cost of transporta tion but they mean more than that They mean an increase in the value of the land of each side of them They mean an in creased school and church atten dance a larger social life for people of the country They mean bigger returns in the way of net profits on the crop they mean in time independence forI the farmer and comfort and opportunity for his children in place of poverty illiteracy and enforced provincsalism In the eastern section of Kentucky good roads as feeders to the railroads would mean the opening up of the richest section in the South Louisville Times Looking After Jewels It is better to keep jewels in boxwood sawdust instead of in velvet lined cases as the sawdust- is very cleansing Rubbing with a piece of soft chamois is also- a good polisher Many good jewels are discolored by water and for these the chamois is absolutely necessary Turquoises turn green if wet andi pearls become black These tones may be cleaned by means- f a gentle polishing with apiece of chamis or with a dry brush containing soft bristles To clean diamonds soak them in lukewarm water to which a few drops of ammonia have been added Then take out each piece sedately and rub with a soft toothbrush that has been dipped in lukewarm soapsuds made from pure castile soap rinse in luke warm water and put away to dryin the sawdust The sawdust gets in all the setting and so prove more cleans ing than anything else you could use When you take them out shake off the sawdust and they will be found to be clear and rilliant without a flaw Qr the tiniest speck of dust To clean gold ornaments when unadorned with gems soak them in soapy lukewarm water to which a few drops of ammonia have been added Polish them thoroughly witha toothbrush and dry completely with a piece of chamois Seal rings can in this way be made to glitter almost like diamonds V To clean chains composed of close links between which all sorts of dust particles can collect puttim to soak in a bottle con= taming a mixture of soapsuds sod prepared chalk After afevI hours shake the bottle well and pour off tl lather then nneein Alanddry

the republican party to take steps to provide for electing senators by popular vote and the refusal of the republican convention to endorse the reform Second The failure of the rE- publican congress to pass a bill providing for publicity of con tributions and the refusal of the republican convention even to endorse the reform Third The failure of the re publican congress to pass a postal savings bank bill and the hypocrisy of the party in endorsing this reform which it had just ignored in congress Fourth The passage by the rebublican congress of a currency bill which enables speculative banks to convert all sorts of securities into currency and actual ly reduces the margin of safety for depositors instead of increasing it- Fifth The destruction of rep resentative government in the lower house where the republican speaker and his committee on rules have all power and not even a majority can get a vote on a popular bill if the speaker refuses consent Sixth The fortynine per cent increase in the cost of living under the republican Dingley tariff and its trusts while wages have increased only nineteen per cent Seventh The refusal of the republican congress to amend this tariff although its iniquities are admitted and future revision has been reluctantly promised by its friends after the storm is over Eight The notorious fact admitted by Senator Aldrich republican leader in the senate that American tariff protected oncerns sell their products abroad in competition with European factories at lower prices than they exact from American consumers and the refusal of the republican house of representa tives to adopt an amendment to have our government agents report on these prices Ninth The republican leaders sufi ficient only to compensate factor ies for the difference between labor costa in America and abrpad rewh publican tariff is more than suf laboricientcost On steel products the labor cost fifteen per ce tand the tariff is thirtytwo per centW- Bryan

two weeks my health has been bad but I guess it is nothing serious I consulted a doct rand he first said I had appendicitis II informed him that I was not a bloated bond holder and he said I h a d roomatiz and indigestion He charged two dollars for advising me to work more and eat less Advice comes high from doctors lawyers and high financiers while I a m very generous with suggestions and dont get a cent In fact I have posed as a doctor of finance when my available cash assets when suits of clothes sell for a cent apiece I could not pay for the arm hole of a vest But there are others During the panic of the 90s when free silver and the gold standardwere being agitated and when all men who followed teachings of VJa Bryan were called Socialists Communists and Anarchists I hold opinions from notaries of sound money which showed them to be natural blamed fools who had relapsed I was at time on staff of Ral eigh News and Observer which was an enthusiastic follower of Bryan Every now and then Id meet a boss in some cotten mill who was in mortal terriorof a fifty cent dollar He clamored for a dollar good in Europe Where Europe is he had no idea but had a lurking suspicion tha itWasinNoo York or more In fact some of the would talk of Europe France and England Another disquieting feature was a fear of a flood of silver money when England France and Europe would dump all their base silver money on us Now and thenan operative that wore winter clothing in summer and summer clothing in winter would go into hysterics about an honest dollar when the blamed fool never saw anything but the companys check which he ex changed for cotten seed oil coffee flour and swine bosom at the company store Another speil that often saluted my ears was a penegrie on the tariff The pool
