the eastern portion of this county water is very scarce many of the smaller streams having become dry Grazing is so scarce in all portions of the county that cows are given but little milk A light rain fell Sunday night Mrs Minnie Johnson of this county took the premium on battenburg table cover at the State Fair So far as we have heard this is the only premium won by anyone in this county The fact is that our people have not been interested in the exhibits but doubtless in the future more attention will be given Adair county products both in finish l articles and fine stock Remember that a series of meetings will commence at the Christian church next Sunday The pastor will be as sisted by Eld W H Pinkerton of Paducah an able speaker who has been evangelizing for several years Miss Mamie

lots as has been reported It is reported that Co1L B Hurt is thinking of removing from Adair county We take it that the statement was started as a joke In our judg ment there are only two places that

preparations are being made for a great gathering of the Wearers of the Gray Cheap rates have been secured from the various railroads for the rej union The necessity for more dwellings in Columbia is

Propositon The Democratic argument in f favor of the guarantee of bank l deposits as proposed by the Den xr ver platform is so plain simple and conclusive that in the lan tv guage of Holy Writ the way 8 fairing men though a fool shall r not errtherein A bank in lending money re quires the borrower to give what the banker considers ample se = curity When a man deposits money in a bank which is the same thing as lending it to the banker why should not the ma have as good security as the banker requires from those who borrow from him The guarantee plan will prevent runs on banks because de positors were known to make rush on banks to withdraw their deposits except when they hav feared that their money was no safe in the banks that held it If it were guaranteed to them they would not embarrass the bank and perhaps break it as is often the case by making a rush to get their hands upon their de posits This may be well illustrated by the demand made upon the cashier of a bank by a good old lady depositor who said wit great earnestness I understan- that there is a run on your bank and that it is not considered safe Now if you have my money here and it is absolutely safe I will l leave it where it is but if youI have not got it I want it this t very minute The guarantee plan will cause timid peopleallclasses of people to put their money in banks in stead of hiding it in old stockings under carpet and elsewhere and thus the money win get into active circulation improving business conditions in every communityWhen Government State or Nation becomes the guardian of the interests of depositors by requiring the banks to guar antee them the safekeeping and return of their money laws will be enacted thatwill make bank ers very careful as to their meth ods of doing business and when the government becomes the prosecutor of those who wreck banks through reckless over speculation or other improper illegal or dishonest conduit suchc offenders cannot hope to escape just punishment for their crimes Thus would be secured honest and safe bankifing absolute security to the de positor who deserves at least the same consideration that the banker now demands and receives from his patrons a perfect safeguard against the ruin of banks by runs upon them which often follow the slighest suspicion as r to their solvency and safety greater profit to the banker growing out of increased depos 4its and greatly improved busi ness conditions due to placing large sums of idle and unproductive capital in active circula tion now kept in hiding by those J who are not willing to entrust it to the banks without something in the nature of a guarantee that at will not be lost or stolenE j Town News it i Gare of the Brood Mares v The mare should be fed at all 1

and thereby refuse the farmer a chance to combat the tobacco trust by putting his to bacco on the market in a manu factored state As the law now is a farmer can not sell a twist of tobacco without incriminating himself This law was made to enrich the tobacco trust What would you think of a party that would advocate a law to tax the farmers who sell baled hay Re member also that the Republi can National Convention by a unanimous vote refused to adopt a plank declaring for the elec tion of United State Senators by the direct vote of the people and thus expressed itself as opposed to even giving the farmer a chance to elect Senators who would vote for the repeal of the tobacco tax What do the Re publican farmers of Adair county think of the National Republican party Is it the friend of

Has your wife cause to say the same that this woman says Why I Would Not Marry Mj Husband Again is the title of an article in a recent number of the Ladles Home Journal If all the husbands and all the men who are ever going to be husbands in this broad land were to read and digest the things setI forth in this article there would surely ensue a most tremendous boom in domestic happiness and a slump in the divorce marketI The woman who tells the story starts out by saying she has been married thirty years that she and her husband probably live as happily as the average married couple and that she expects they will go down the years together till death breaks their bond But she says if I were a young woman and knew as much as I know now I would not marry my husband again Then she tells why she would not sIIonsmen ye some take wivesiBecause her husband did not manifest affection for her after their marriage but let her takeI it fOlgrantedIBecause instead of waiting upI on her in little household matters he allowed and expected her to wait upon him Because he make her ask himI for every nickel she tobspend and account afterward for what she had done with it Because he was less polite and less courteous to her than to other women of his acquaintance Because he often shut her up when she wanted to talk with him by taking no interest in what she said or by mumbling at her from behind a newspaper Because he smoked to excess filling the house with the stale oder of bad tobacco Because he never compliment ed her on her dress her cooking or housekeepingOh say Mr Hus band no wonder she wouldnt marry again Hes a pup No hes not Hes just an ordinary selfish selfsatisfied hus band perfectly ignorant of the longings and the needs of a womans soul and miserably unaware of his ignorance How about you who tjiink him a pup Now answer Do vou even give your wife more than one kiss at time Do you make love to her as you did when you were winning her Or do you think it would be silly Do you frequently tell her how pretty she looks how well some new gown becomes her after she has worked on it for days how good a meal has been set before you Do you Do you give her a regular allowance out of your salary or do fivespotjWhen about the little thins she wants to tell you aboutythe little things of her daily life that she wants to talk over with you because you have elected yourself to be her comrade and companion and chum Do you t dailyIlife do every service you can for her J Answer to yourself and Decide tj 4 hll I li j eRW ti tfi Jitf r 1ffl f 5 t whether your wife would have any particularly good reason for marrying you if she had it to do over again and knew you as she has learned to know in the years since you married her Concludes the writer of this in teresting article A woman in love is the most tractable creature in the world Why can the man not keep her in love That he does not try tot do is the common history of wedded life Trueabsolutely tr u ea n dP what a commentary on the folly and the stupidity as well as the selfishness ofman For sometimes the wife does not go patiently along to the end carrying her heart full of sorrow as the tobeexpected portion of matrimony Occasionally she says Im tired Theres noth ing in this You go your way and Ill go mine Then Mr Husband wakes up and realizes too late that he has thrown away the most precious thing in this world to any man a womans love and devotion A Mild Laxative For Babys Bowels The infant or the child should not be given salts purgative waters or harsh pills or tablets when the bowels are con

Postoffice as second clasi mail matter r WED SEPT 30 1908 r DEMOCRATIC TICKET For President WM J BRYAN of Nebraska 5 For VicePresident J W KERN ofglndiana For Congress A G PATTERSON of Bell county Mr Bryan has never made I front porch campaign He met the people at their own homes and discussed the issues in every section He has never deemed it beneath the dignity of an as pirant to canvass the territory whose support he sought and in so doing has met millions of people who could not journey across the continent to get a glimpse at a Presidential candidate and to near the issues presented by their favorite In so doing his political opponents have hurled many epithets of an unsavory nature have ridiculed the idea of a man seeking such distinction coming down to thelevel of the common people and meeting them face to face In former cam paigns they have stood aloof from the Bryan policy but what has happened now Mr Taft is hanging on to his special car and dishing out rearend speeches throughout the middle West The unexpected has happened The mighty manof a greatparty who heretofore pointed the finger of scorn at such methods tumbles to the racket of emergency and tries to cover the entire country Not contentlto take chances in an even handed battle between himself and his opponent not satisfied with the aid his ally Hearst could give fearing the great awakening of the people the President of the country rushes to hisfaid and tells what a great good man this man Taft is and what a tremendous mis take would be made to elect MrI J Bryan Never in the history of this country have the people been so directed by a President never have they witnessed a more strenious effort from one man to dictate the policy of his party to name his suc essor and to run every branch of the government His course has brought the coun try to the verge of disaster his power has been too keenly felt but whether the people will listen to his pleas for the election of Mr Taft caifonly be told after the battle is over Mr Bryan as in former campaigns is con sistent with his ideas and con victions of political warfare and is therefore addressing the voters in different parts of the country He has no appologies to offer no emergencies to push him from his high ideas while Mr Taft is doing what he and hThlparty has heretofore considered beneath 1 p th ainitt f i 4 r Presidentialas

soon be heard from the rearend piaarthroughout the country VTh ei president instead of guiding th J old ship of State is plunging into the political whirlpool and af he is not prostituting the dignity of his station he is at least estab lishing a precedent that may lead others to that end His action in this contest appears on the surface the equal to a ward politician Hot Stuff From New York Sun Hot stuff from correspondents to the New York Sun now supporting Taft Sir Is Judge Taft willing to risk his chances of polling the votes ofthe conservative inde pendent business men of the country as a me too of the present occupant of the White House If not why cant he prevail on some good real friend of his to put a muzzle on this bun in the china shop If the Presi dent is the believer he professes to be in the spirit as well as the letter of civil servicereform why not as becomes the dignity of the office of President of all the people set a proper example to the underling officials of nonpar tisan indifference in elections Why should not he a servant of- the people as well as postmasters and other Government employes be somewhat amenable to civil service rules Is it consistent to threaten the poor little country postmaster with discharge for doing the very thing he is doing himself Is he too high and mighty even to harbor a sug gestion that it might become him to show some regard for the laws and proprieties that he professes to believe in HERES ANOTHER Sir Are there no men of courage and sense left in the Repub lican party It is evident that the unspeakable Roosevelt is doing the long suffering candi date a great amount of harm by his irresponsible mouthings yet he goes unmuzzled As a part ner of the man he branded the assassin of McKinley as a princi pal in the nefarious Hariman negotiations people are begin ning to doubt if the great panjandrum is a capable judge of moral issue The Rooseveltian policy of cramming a candidate down thq unfortunate peoples throats has caused many sick stomaches in the Republican party Mr Herman Ridder is now the Treasurer of the Democratic National Campaign Committee He is the editor of the Staats Zeitung an influential

on the farm that are loafers that do not contribute enough to the products of the T farm to pay for taxes let alone fencing The first thing to do with these is to drain them Others are stony or gravely portions which do not rind will not produce sufficient crops to jay for cultivation and the pro per thing to do with these is to sow them to tame grasses cover them over with barn yard manure and let them stay in grass Sometimes a field has been farmed so long that it has ceased to be profitable and the only thing to do with this is to put it down in tame grass and apply manure heavily There are frequently acres on the farm that are out of the way that could be better planted to timber of some kind suitable to the neighberhood Somethimes there are corners in a field cut off by a stream or so inconveniently located that they cannot be farm ed to advantage The time has now come when we can put these in timberIn way or other every acre on the farm should be com pelled to do the duty according to its ability A lofer is wholly unprofitable and is very likely to get into mischief and loafiing acres are no exception If they are not required to producesome useful crop they will produce weeds and the seeds will be scattered by some means or others over the entire farm Dont have any loafers about your house or your barn and dont have any loafing acres on your farm Wallace s

upon her acquisition of the statehood boon because as has been aptly said she is the most Democratic state of the unionWe do not mean by this that Oklahoma casts more democratic votes than any other state but that she has gone farther in the incorporation of genuine demo fundaImental proach to the spirit of Jeffersonian democracy as it is possi ble with the candition besetting us to reach- Oklahoma is therefore a guid ing beacon light on the way to a higher and better civilization Into her constitution is written the principles which experience has demonstrated guarantee to the individual citizen the largest measure of freedom in all things consistent with the public welfare and the greatest number of impediments to his oppressors In a word we have put the principles of democracy into actual practice So far we have seen nothingr to condemn the people are prospering as neverI before and receiving turnes from their energies All j signs combined to show that we acted

montExperiment Station is a testimonial to the use of the spraying machine on pears i Allthe sprayed trees of the previous year were easily recog nized by the cleaner and brighter color of the bark The buds started earlier and more vigor ously Trees were sprayed four or five times with results as follows 99 per cent perfect scab free fruit only one scabby pear in six barrels where trees were sprayed five times and but four in two barrels where the trees were sprayed four times Prac tically every pear on unsprayed trees was scabby 19 per cant inferior to the sprayed fruit The sprayed pears were valued in New York at 225 the best of the unsprayed fruit at 175 a barrel Two things must be carefully sought after in grafting one is to secure the growing of the scions and the other is to hasten the matter of the healing of the wounds If the work is properly done a tree will rarely break where the union takes place be tween the stock and the scion In fact the limb is somewhat stronger at that point after the wound is properly healed than anywhere else You will notice that the limb is larger at the place of union than either above or below due to the fact that the downward flow of the elaborate sap is checked at this place arid spread out over the wound and thus makes the limb stronger here than anywhere else A Figure From The Past Like a voice from the caverns of the past

P Where orchards are planted ex clusively for commercial pur poses and not merely to furnish a family supply the matter of fertility is ususally looked after in some systematic way but the ordinary farm orchard is often completely starved out by the raising of regular grain crops among the treessuch as corn wheat and oats This is a ruin ous custom for the combined drain of both trees and crops quickly exhausts the soil to a point where it is impossible for the trees to bear good fruit The only way to correct such a condi tion is to provide fertilizers that will furnish all the elements of

fqr fancy trade The large crops of grain and pota toes that are being raised this year over the whole country should induce farmers to keep larger flocks Eggs are now sell ing for a higher price propor tionately than any other article produced on the farm Not only is grain going to be cheaper from the present outlook but also the vegetable that the farmers will have that cannot be shipped or utilized on the family table and they can be turned into money through the egg basket The prices of beef are so high that many housewives prefer poultry to beef and the stock that is not profitable

determination of the actors of America to take part in it Led by Wilton Lackaye who is regarded by critics as one of the brightest WILTON LACKAYE among American players 8000 mem bers of actors organizations have promised to take a hand in the political game Already the New York theatrical men folk have formed the White Rats Political league an organ ization designed to impress the poUt ical parties with its campaign impor tance It is not claimed by those who are active in this matter that the movement is the outcome of pure pa triotism For some time the impression has been current in theatrical circles that the rank and file of the profession was not getting all to which it believes itself to be entitled It is thought that the condition of the pro fession may be improved greatly if it can make itself felt at the polls Mr Lackaye is a Close student of politics and economics and it is to his initiative that the movement is due His action in the matter is not the result of a sudden whim but has been brought about by long and careful thinking and wide consultation with other leading members of the profession Now that the beginning has been made it is not afrall likely that the actor will ever relapse into the nonvoting condition JAMES KEIR HARDIE Picturesque British Politician Who Was a Miner at Seven Years James Keir Hardie now in this coun try is one of the most picturesque fig ures In the British political world It is not his first visit to America and he is well known and admired greatly in Socialist circles in the United States and Canada Mr Hardies present tour is for the purpose of amalgamating the American and Canadian trades union ists and Socialists in a great homogene JAMES KEIR HAEDIE ous body alike in principle and work Ing together Hardie is the parliamen tary labor leader and as such exerts a remarkable influence on British poli tics He is the owner and editor of the Labor Leader and was first elected to parliament in 1892 Mr Hardie is a native 6t Scotland born in 1856 and was a toiler in thei mines from his seventh until his twen tyfourth year He was a student and began to write articles on economic questions which attracted attention while hewas still a delyer in the bowels of Dearth He was soon accept ed by the miners as Jheir expp ien and has beth a firm sway over them The following story 4s told pf Keir

Plan Is Sound In PrincipleUse of Money In Elections Economy Rules In Democratic Camp By WILLIS J ABBOT In the rather lively controversy be j iween Uncle Joe Cannon and Mr Bry an over their respective personal fortunes and the sources of their prosper- Ity it occurs to me that Mr Bryan has lIad very much the better part of the argument Without going into detail on the subject which has been some what reported in the newspapers al ready I may say that Cannon with characteristic discourtesy vulgarity and falsity in a formal speech refer red to Mr Bryan as having made 1 000000 by selling wind and printers ink Mr Bryans retort reduced Can non to a condition of comparative quietude Paraphrased it was thisI I earn a living by lecturing and by writing No one need attend my lee Lures or buy either my books or my paper unless he desires Speaker Cannon has been in public office since 1861 almost continuously most of the time receiving a salary of barely 5000 a sear He is very rich What has Mr Cannon been selling Following this statement Mr Bryan frankly declared that he thought himself worth about 125000 but was willing to accept the responsibility of 150000 if his estimate was too low He challenged Speaker Cannon to match this statement in kind The speaker was silent except by making- a bluffing demand that people look to the records of Danville and see how fully he pays his taxes there Natu rally this Jlash aroused some interest and an investigation was set on foot in Lincoln Neb to determine the amount of the Bryan assessment It was found to be 84500 which under the taxing law of that state indicates property slightly in excess of 100000 Then attention was directed toward Speaker Cannons assessment at Dan yule His neighbors and closest friends have always estimated his wealth at from 500000 to 1000000 But it was found that he has scheduled for taxa tion only 15115 in personal property while his residence is assessed at 22 000 In other words if common report concerning his wealth is correct he is fledging his taxes and securing the as sessment of a property easily worth- four times that of Mr Bryan at a figure of barely onethird of that on the Bryan property Some Republican Testimony This testimony is on the guaranty of bank deposits and it comes from very distinguished Republican sources One is the Hon Lyman J Gage formerly a Republican secretary of the treasury Mr Gage testified before the committee on banking in the house of representatives which was considering the Fowler bill He said I am persuaded that it is just equita ble wise and right that the depositors of the banks which come under pro visions of this bill wilt have their de posits guaranteed to them as well as the banks circulating notes held by the general public The nature of the obligation Is exactly the same in principle whether evidenced by a pass book or by the banks notes in the form of circulating money There is no dif ference in principle The Chairman Do you think that this principle of guaranteeing deposits would lead to unsound banking Mr GageNo sir I think the fact that under this bill there would be greater restrictions and a penalty for neglect of inspection and that there would be machinery for inspection would lead to sounder banking So much for a Republican secretary of the treasury Comes now a Re publican comptroller of the currency under McKinley Charles G Dawes one of the leading financiers of Chicago This is what he had to say about- a bank guaranty system in a book he wrote some years ago before it be came an issue on which his party and mine split It must certainly be ad mitted the establishment of such a fund would have a tendency to prevent the mad rushes of small and large Depositors during times of panic for money which they hoard away in safety deposit boxes or other hiding places If the effect of such a depositsiour judgment would be the case no law could be of more value and importance to the debtor or to the cred- Itor or to the community at large ProperIrm we trustth e congress will be directed Former Secretary Gage having at tamed very advanced years is out of politicsIhas materially changed his opinions he should look with some aversion upon the Republican party policy of discrediting this very plan for render tag bank deposits more stable How Money Comes and Goes The cost of a political
