Line The people of Adair county now have an opportunity to take part in an en terprise that will be of lasting benefit to the whole citizenship build up tho county making the route from here to a railroad stationshorter thereby cur tailing expenses in every line of trans portation This pike will create competition the same as two stores two mills or two enterprises of any charac ter Competition is what makes busi ness We want to see Adair county get in the swim and we believe this pike will be the means of putting her on the high road to prosperity It will be seen from the order of the Fiscal Court which follows that some thing like ten thousand dollars will have to be subscribed in stock and when the sum of ten thousand dollars has been raised by the people the Fiscal Court will take stock to the amount of 5000 Can the stock be raised We believe that it can and that it will only be a very short time until the certainty of the pike can be announced We only have about seven and one half miles to build and many believe that less than fifteen thousand dollars will do the work The bridge across Russells creek will not cost exceed ing 2500 and in our judgment the roa1 will enhance the value of property not only along the line but through out the county This will be a toll pike but the rate will be lower than most pikes charge Is the pike from here to Campbellsville paying Less see In 1905 it declared a dividend of 12 per cent in 1906 it declared a dividend of 18 per cent in 1907 it declared a dividend of 6 per cent after building a5000 bridge across Green river Will the stock in this pike pay We believe it will and we want to see several energetic men start at once to raise it The pike from Greensburg to the Adair county line will be completed to the Ebineezer church by Christmas The following is the order of the Fiscal Cburt of Adair Cqunty In order to secure a good turnpike road from Columbia to the Green county line at a point to intersect the Greens burg pike beit Resolved That when bona fide sub scriptions have been made for at least two thirds of the stock necessary to build and complete said pike in good firstclass condition from Columbia to the Green county line with a bridge over Russells creek then the county Judge is authorized to subscribe for one third of the stock necessary to build and complete said pike and bridge provided the total amount of stock necessary shall not exceed 15000 and the amount so subscribed for by Adair Court shall not exceed 5000 This is in lieu of all subscription to be made by Adair county Eld John S Sweeney a minister of the Christian Church well known here is dying at his home Paris Ky The Annual Conference of the United Brethren was held at Normans Chapel Casey county from the 7th to the 11th of October Bishop T C Carter presiding A great deal of Church work was accomplished Dr A C Blake was ap pointed to the pastorate of the Colum bia station He will locate in this place and will fce here in a few days He is a strong man and a very successful revivalist Upon his arrival here he will at once take steps to push the building of a church house the lot having al ready been secured In onr judgment there were more people in the Christian Church last Sunday night to hear Eld Pinkerton than were ever before in the building at one time They were packed in the seats like sardines in a box Theisles were occupied and all the standing room was taken The subject of the speaker was the re lation of this world to the celestial world It was a most interesting dis course every point being forcibly pre sented His sermon to men in tbeafI ternoon Insurance against Failure or How not to Worry was also full of anInouncementpeople to believe that the speaker would deal inhabits and conduct not permissible for ladies to hear but not so It was a strong discourse telling the men what was necessary to do in order to gain eternal life beyond the skies Ladies were present and enjoyed the sermon as much so as the men The meeting will continue throughout the week and perhaps longer Up to this writing eight or ten have confessed their Savior and have been baptized The Sunday School

which would have proven fatal had it not been for his quick action and the timely ser vice of Dr R Y Hindman Mr Cravens had been sick during the night and when he arose in the morning he con cluded to take a dose of salts Going to the appartment where the family remedies were kept he got what he sup posed was salts but he picked up the paper containing oxalic acid prepared and swallowed a half tablespoonful He at once detected his mistake and running his finger down his throat threw up In the meantime Dr Hindman was summoned who administered emetics and after several hours Mr Cravens was pronounced out of danger Oxalic acid is very poisonous two or three grains said to be sufficient to produce death The occurrence greatly alarmed Mr Cravens parents and his friends generally about town but all uneasiness was dispelled in the after noon when he made his appearance up on the square ready for business and looking in his usual health Marriage Licenses Tlw following marriage licenses

Patience is a most excellent quality and we are always so fond of our patient friends They stand for so much Corns grow rapidly in hot weather and tight places There is neither honor nor emoluments coming from being just an ordi nary liar There are some women who certain ly are entitled to keep their husbands in nights It is such a pity that the people of whom we are the most fond somehow have a way of being impossible them selves or making us seem so f The girl who doesnt expect a man to expect that she knows much but expects him to expect that she expects t him to know everything makes a great hit I Truth is a precious thing which may r be why some people use it so spar ingly There are a lot of people who never get seasick They were born inland and had the good judgment to stay

in advance Oer whose tent victory will float On his conclusions more to bank We might be very much inclined If he could prove beyond a doubt That people did not change their mind Some fellows vote the selfsame way greatgreatgranddadlAnd when the vote collector calls Their politics will not be hid But there are more unstable men Who shift around and change their views With every shifting of the wind Or every time they change their shoes The man who gathers up the vote Dont reckon with the playful clown Who feels that he must shift about To prove that he is not nailed down He votes for Mr Man

Resembles Paper Dart CAN SAIL IN HEAVY WIND Planes Operated to Spill the Wind if It Is Too Strong has Keel Like a Yacht to Keep Her Right Side Up Automatic Rudders Do you remember the paper darts that the boys used to make in school and how gracefully they sailed on the air when the wind was not too strong IWell that is the principle on which the latest airship has been planned coupled with additional ideas caught from the flight of the arrow and the sailing of racing yachts Arrow plane the inventor calls it and as he frequently addresses the members of the Aero club on the subject dearest to their hearts and was formerly sec retary of the Aeronautical society and still an enthusiastic member of that organization his efforts to solve the problem of aerial navigation are re ceiving the serious attention of the members of both organizations- L G W Schroeder is the inventor of the latest airship which is unlike anything else of its kind It consists of two planes forty feet long and wedge shaped At the forward end the machine is only six inches wide At the stern it is fourteen feet wide There is a keel seven inches deep Just like the fin keel on the English cutters that came over here to lift the cup says the New York Globe The keel runs the entire length of the machine There is a seven foot pro peller forward and provision is made for a larger propeller behind These rev9lutionspower four cylinder four cycle ex plosion engine The engine and other machinery are fastened to the bottom of the keel and close up to the front of the Arrow plane That idea is taken from the boats that have lead on the bottom of the fin keel to keep them from turning turtle Mr Schroeder contends that inIclplein the air By having all the weight atIthe bottom of the keel he says it be impossible for his airship to turn turtle under any circumstances Sticking up out of the forward end of the Arrowplane is the steering rud der At the rear of the horizontal planes are what might properly be call= ed the equilibrium rudders They are a couple of squares working up and down on hinges These regulate the rising and dropping of the airship By means of an invention which Mr Schroeder is having patented the equi libriuia rudders work automatically in an emergency such as resulted in the accident to Orville Wright Mr Schroe der is certain that under no circumstances not excepting the breaking down of the engine will his airship descend in any way but right side up No heavy wind or sudden gust of wind can bother The himIidence are above the of aframe of hollow steel tubing into which are set frames covered with can vas or other material strong enough for the purpose These squ worked by levers much as the resareI ing windows in a greenhouse are ma nipulated In a heavy blow these squares that comprise the planes will be tilted at an angle sufficient to spill the wind out of the planes Just as is done on a sailboat when a squall comes up Then there is the fact that the Arrowplane is designed to travel on an even keel and that both direction and height are under control If one set of rudders gives out there are oth ers to do the work The machine rests on four automo bile wheels two feet in diameter which are used in starting To rise in the air the sections of the planes are raised sufficiently to get the great est pressure from the air against them The propellers are started the ma chine runs forward and sails from the ground When the desired height is reached the sections of the planes are flattened and automatically locked in their places After that the operator goes where he pleases There are a dial and a pendulum to tell when the airship gets off an even keel or tilts toI one side or the other It is the pres ent purpose of the inventor tq make machines that will be a success in a commercial way to the extent of buitd lug ineiii to carry two or three pas sengers Mr Schroeder is sure lie can itThis latest addition to the flotilla of airships is now assembled The inventor is confident that he has the right idea and is enthusiastic about the future of his airship He sent out a lot of miniatures made of paper from the windows of his offices in New York city the other day They went where he said they would We naturally think our own chil siren are finer than any other children hesaldJuQutthat is not the reason I consider iny aeroplane superior to oth er airships My Objection to the Wright brothers machine is that it is forty feet wide and only eight feet long fee how little air Pressure they get in the long way of their aeroplane My machine gets the pressure for all its length There is practically no difference between sailing in the air and lii the water If the principle of the wide aeroplane Is right why are not bests built in the feame watt Boats recof1t1cted Jongandnarrown many the airships are built OB t the bird model which iiTrtiat make 1 r y f the trouble for them The wings are AIThejduced that way Most of the machines with which we are familiar do best when there is little or no air A heavy wind will not bother us at all We can always up when the others would not dare tor All the models with which we have experimented have behaved beautifully and I have no doubt the machine will do the same I think we have solved the problem and that we will be able to construct machines at reasonable cost that will carry two and three pas sengers Election Officers following are the election officers IThe November electionIColumbia No IW T McFar FredIis + East Columbia No 2R H Price and

CongressiA G PATTERSON of Bell county Gen P W Hardin delivere- the most convincing the most inanswerable and the truestDem ocratic speech in the courthouse last Thursday that has ever bee heard in that building though it has adorned our town for more than twentyfive years The house was fairly well filled by many of Mr Hardins old friends including quite a goodnumber of ladies and out of the entire number not a word of criticism manyrRepublicans were present His main subject was the tariff and its relation to the trusts and com binations that have built up gi gantic fortunes for the few at the expense of the many He showed that the principles of Democracy were right in the beginning of our Government that they are right now and best for the people but the party with uninterrupted control for more than a half century became cor rupt or was led by selfish motives resulting in its overthrow the establishing of the Republican party that corrected the abuse toofthe goodi that the Republican party had accomplished but of late years it had been led by self ish motives bringing unjust bur dens on the people and should therefore be shorn of its power The inequalities resulting from Republican legislation and ad ministration were pointed out in a manner befiting a Statesman and clearly showed that the time had come for a change Mr Hardin has always been consid ered a forceful speaker but his address to his many friends here last week was one that outmeas ured all other speeches he ever made That he is doing a great worjc for the cause he represents can not be

his estimate being that 90 percent of the labor vote will go to all the gold Democratic bolters of 94 are supporting him and the Democrats are more united than they have been since Cleveland was elected in 182 ThirdThe Republicans have biggest lot of quarrels on their hands ever known in a single ear these quarrels threatening disastrous losses in States that are vital to Republican success such as Ohio Indiana Illinois Kansas Wisconsin the two Dakotas New York etc Fo ur t h Republican luck has been broken by a panic busi ness no longer fears him there is still a vast army of unemployed workers and he feels that he is safe from a repetition oft e scares of 1896 and 1900r FifthsA great revolution has been going oil among the farmers of the Middle West in favor of the ppptijjur reforms which the Republicans refused to j tjn their platform afcci which the r Democrats adopted and this he believes will be shown in the votes of the great farming States like Kansas Iowa Nebraska Minnesota the two Dakotas and WisconsinSixthThe railroads having mixed so much in politics he be lieves have determined to keep their hands off altogether and will make no attempt to coerce their employes as in 1896 and 1900SeventhThe feeling among President Roosevelts supporters in the West that he more nearly represents the Presidents re forms than does Mr Taft and the feeling that Mr Taft is not a goodnatured easygoing man who will let things remain as they are- EigthThe education which the farmers and have had of the discriminations of the tariff which is reflected in the decision of

all a horse needs sometimes when he is offI his feet Wide tires have an important bearing upon the question of good roads From 81 to 83 per cent of the corn crop of the United States is fed to live

countries with sandy soils is higher than those whose soils are of aclayey character Scours in young animals can often be checked by wheat flour scorched and mixed with skim milk and the yolk of an egg Sow the spare field in rye Sown now it will make good growth before cold weather and consequently cover the ground for winter Leaves of clover hay constitute its most nutritious part and for this reason it should be fed in tight mangers so that none of it will be lost Give the work horses a few days off in the fields occasionally They will accomplesh more work when put to it again than they wouldwithout the rest Dirt is the great enemy of milk From the feeding and handling of the cow to the final disposition of the milk you can not be too careful It should not be necessary to remind you that the separator should be washed and scalded each time it is used Washing it with clean cold water is not sufficient Eggs that are uniform in size and color find a more ready mar ket and a better price than eggs not so assorted This is one of the strong arguments in favor of one breed of hens The farmer has no one to blame but himself when his soil becomes impoverished for both by crop rotation and the raising of live stock he can put more into the soil each year than he takes outTests made by the Minnesota station indicate that pork can be produced with less grain by hog ging off

continually get let in by purchasing goods said to be up to the mark at a redicu lousy low figure The answer is that they are all looking for something for nothingAnd outcome in most cases is that

CLIMAX WAS REACHED Sy Recent Establishment of Two Cent Rate Between Great Britain and United StatesPossibilities of the ChangeIncidents of Struggle For Reduced Rates It is almost exactly 250 years since the slogan a penny post was first sounded The penny post became a fact throughout the United Kingdom only sixtyeight years ago In the Unit ed States the people obtained that rate on a letter only twentyfive years ago As that event occurred on Oct 1 1883 the establishment on Thursday Oct 1 1908 in a very quiet manner of a penny post between Great Britain and the United States was in reality not only a most fitting but an epoch making eels bration of the reduction of internal let ter postage to 2 cents It is believed fthat only a few years will elapse before this rate will be adopted between many countries Reductions and improvements in postal rates have been obtained only by constant battling It has required broad minded men willing to sacrifice money and time to obtain the inestima ble boon of inexpensive communication in writing says the New York Tribune There are a number of little known facts connected with the fight of the true philanthropists who have won so much for the development of the worlds civilization The struggle for the transfer of a letter or message at a cost of a penny English or 2 cents American began in the days of the English commonwealth Charles I the Impecunious monarch several years before his execution established the letter office of England This was farmed out to Thomas Witherings for life he receiving a monopoly of the carrying of letters The charge was sixpence a letter This was such a high price that many persons made use of other means of getting their letters to their destination Private under takers undertook to perform the serv ice at cut rates and parliament at odds with the king refused to support his letter carrier in the latters efforts to punish the undertakers by imprison ment Ten years later the undertak ers were still a thorn in the flesh and the official letter carrier and another did in a ryotous manner with swords and other weapons by force break into the house where the goods and letters of the undertakers were and thrust their servants out of doores and after Mireatning speeches and many more outrages restraygned these undertakers from receiving letters Although persecution seemed to fol low the undertakers and they are said to have lost approximately 3500 there was such promise of service and profit that in 1659 seven years after this ryotous attempt at suppression they undertook to carry in all the usual roads or England a letter for apenny One of the persons who as sisted in these efforts to obtain for the people a low letter rate curiously enough was a man named HillJohn Hill Men of this name have had a great deal to do in obtaining a penny post John Hilt with others under took the business of carrying 3it the penny rate Like Sir lettersI Hill his namesake of nearly turies later he was a pamphleteer on postal reform In 1659 he published a pamphlet entitled A Penny Post or A Vindication of the Liberty and Birthright of Every Englishman In Carrying Merchants and Other Mens Letters Against Any Restraint of Farmers of Such Employments- He thought it a strange imposition that a man cannot have an accompt of condition of his wife or family with out paying thrice as much as he need and it seems as unreasonable for a man to be forcd to pay 3d for what may be1 done for a penny in re lation to letters as for a man to be compelled to pay thrice as much for meat or any other commodity as the price current He urged that if for seasons of state posts must be erected certainly he is not the fittest man that will give the most money for it but rather he that will undertake the serv ice at the cheapest rate which must be commonll The penny post system was first es tablished in cities In 1680 Robert Murray and William Dockwra set up the London penny post The system which they organized lasted more than a century The skeleton of the system was the forerunner of that used in cities of the United States today There were seven sorting stations and between 400 and 500 receiving stations which correspond to branch stations and letter boxes The foot messengers employed were under bonds and per sons having letters to be transported were asked not to pay them as accord ing to the circular sent out describing the plan these messengers have their wages duly paid them every Saturday night When one realizes how long it requires to deliver a letter mailed in one part of New York city to the ad dressee in another this postal service Qf two and a half centuries ago was peedier than special delivery The Undertakers used starnpsto mark the hour of the dayFonail letters when v sent out from their office to be dell erd tiY which all per qWarey1Rex tpect their letters within rbne7 tie more or less from theime marked thereon excepting such letters as are toW1sand1temotes ftit which the cause the delay of let r t4in iIi rR i tI1fJ 1J J irA 3Vj Yl u cers ma1be easily discernd viz whether it be really in the office or their own servants or others with whom letters are left In course of time other English cities ThenIreformed the postal system by obtain ing the introduction of prepaid postage in the form of adhesive stamps and the governmental sanction of a fee of a penny for a half ounce letter for any distance in the United Kingdom For merly it had been the custom to collect the fee from the person who received the letter This being often a hard ship served to discourage letter writ Ing With the change the total number of letters circulated in the United Kingdom jumped from 75907572 in 1839 to 16876834 in the following year In the year ended March 31 last the number of letters interchanged in the United Kingdom was approximately 3140225000 The next step obviously in the campaign for penny postage was to obtain international letter transportation at that rate Elihu Burritt the learned blacksmith of Connecticut urged Great Britain to undertake to trans port half ounce letters from a British port overseas to any port touched by vessels flying her flag for a penny Then followed the plea for universal penny postage The accomplishment of Oct 1 1908 gave a mighty impetus to this programme It is now possible to mail in Manila a letter destined for London weighing an ounce with a two cent stamp attached and it will be delivered without further payment of postage Joppa i The farmers are busy sowing wheat in th aommunity lMrs
