Crawfords discourse last Sunday forenoon It was the most logical presentation of devotion for the Savior of mankind we ever heard showing that th true Christian carried Christ with him in his business and social affairs of life and that God always prospered those who walked prayfullj before men and in the fear and admonition of the Lord There were many thinking men in the congregrtion all of whom speak of the discourse in the highest praise Last Tuesday evening Misses Bess Rowe and Lina Rpsenfield gave a show er at the home of the latter in honor of Mr and Mrs Bruce Montgomery who were married

until Christmas j I AN OLD STORY At the Time it Occurred People- in Two Counties were Greatly Excited ONE MAN LOST HIS LIFE BURIED HERE Some time between the years of 1825 to 1830 there occurred in Jamestown one of the most sensational killings that was ever recorded in this section of KentuckytAt that time thereresided in Colum bia a Presbyterian minister named Robinson his home being where Mr A G Todd now resides He had a son named Ebineezer Robinson a practicing lawyer who located in Jamestown after Russell county was formed He was a brilliant young man handsome in appearance and he soon became ac quainted with the people throughout the new county and in the meantime built up a lucrative practive He was fond of society and was a leader in all social functions At that time there also resided in Jamestown Dr Stanton Pierce He was young married his wife being a very handsome and attractive woman j and she too was very fond of being in company with young people The Doc tor enjoyed a fine practice consequently was away from home a great deal of his time In his absence young Robin son visited his home clandestinely and he and Mrs Pierce became quite inti mate Dr Pierce was the owner of an old colored woman who was advised of young Robinsons visits to her Miss tress and one day she said to the Doctor Moster I have got something to tell you but I am afraid you will kill me The Doctor assured her that he would do nothing of the kind and told her to proceed She then said to him that while you are out at nightsriding over the country young Robinson visits Mistress and further said to him in order to satisfy yourself you let it be known in town that you are going to Monticello today to be absent about a week then you return home tonight about 12 oclock and you will find Mr Robinson here He did as the darkey advised him and sure enough upon his return he found his wife and young Robinson together in his home He allowed Robinson to leave the premises but he met him the next morning and said to him Robinson you are a young man and so am I but we both cannot live in the same town there fore I will give you three months to wind up your affairs in Russell county and at the expiration of that time you must leave Jamestown and never again return if you do I will kill you Matters quieted but at the end of the three months Robinson left coming to Columbia his fathers home Dr Pierce having already sent his wife to her people Robinson had not been in Columbia A great while until his associates commenced to guy him saying to him that he was afraid to return to Jamestown One day he informed his friends here that he was not afraid of Dr Pierce and to satisfy you I will ride up to Jamestown today circuit court being in session at that time He went ar riving about the noon hour After dinner he walked over and went into the courtroom and seated himself by a window Presently Dr Pierce came along and observing Robinson drew his pistol fired and killed him The remains were brought to Colum bia and buried in the city cemetery not but a short distance from the entrance Dr Pierce was tried md acquitted Some time after his trial he became a candidate to represent Russell in the Legislature and the killing of Robin son was made the issue in the cam paign He was elected by a large ma jority Little Ray Sinclair Dead Monday morning about 6 oclock God releived little Ray Sinclair of his suffering He was the first born of Mr and Mrs Frank Sinclair and was eight years old his last birthday He was a victim of Brights disease and had been sorely afflicted for about one year He had the attention of the best medical skill and the closest nursing but earthly assistance could not bring relief The funeral services were held in the Methodist Church Monday afternoon at 230 oclock conducted by Rev AR Kasey assisted by Eld Z T Williams At the conclusion of the services all that was mortal of little Rays frail body was laid to rest in the city ceme

days ago Messrs E G Atkins and E 0 Stone two knights of the grip always full of life and enthusiasm men who look on the bright side of every proposition and whose energy in pressing business is known to every merchant in South Central Kentucky met with a peculiar and thrilling ex perience while enroute from East Fork to Exie They were indulging in the pleasantries of social conversation pic turing good orders in front of them when suddenly Mr Stone gave the alarm of fire Mr Atkins drew the reins in an instant to see the top of their buggy in flames Quick as thought both were figlting the fire and by pull ing the excelsior and using a lap robe it was extinguished without much harm to the vehicle but leaving the top in an ugly conditionall its stuffing gone and considerable evidence of fire on its outside The top had been let Sown in as compact form as possible and the lining and excelsior caught from a spark from theirsmoking merschaums At least this is the only plausible theory unless it originated from spontaneous combus tions A CBlake1 am thankful for a field of labor which meets my ambition and I tbank God that with it I am surrounded by a willing cooperative people who will

thankful for health strength and a willingness to work f01 God and the U B Church Last Wednesday Fred Garrison whose home was near Dunhville Casey county was shot and killed by his uncle a man named Thompson It is thought that Thompson was crazy as he has been in the asylum two or three times The boy who was killed was a son of Jo Garrison It seems that there had been a sale at Thompsons house and the mother of the dead boy pur chased an article that she could not carry home She sent her son after it and he was killed by his uncle The series ofmeetings at the Presby terian church closed last Sunday night During their progress there were quite a number of additions to the congregation and the Church greatly revived Rev Crawford is a learned preacher full of love for God and speaks pointedly and forcibly Two evenings during the meeting Rev Crawford was sick but Rev A R Kasey filled his pulpit de livering interesting sermons At J S Naylors sale last Thurs day stock sold as

The owner can get it by paying for its feed and this notice J N Murrell An immense stack of carpets art squares and rugs at RUSSELL GO J Lt Us Reason Together Mr Editor Observing that your columns are open for the discussion of the Graded School proposition I shall venture a word in its favor First It is a measure in perfect ac cord with the genius of our institutions The very best educational provision for the masses is the imparative demand of a Republic It is for the greatest good to the greatest number It is an es tablished well approved and successful school method that is before our people for their approval Favorable action enterpriseISecond The discussion of this question should be promptly divorced from all sectarian and partisan entangle rnents It stands apart from both only so far as it is good ecclesisastical policy and good politics to do the very best thing for the communitys greater good The measure should stand on its own merits It would prove a calamity indeed should the much unseasoned talk regarding the Methodist and Pres byterian schools result in strangling a vital measure which has for its object the broad foundation of providing a chance for every boy and girl in the community The churches behind these schools are too great and too unselfish to whine at any temporary loss that may be theirs They also have the ability to readjust their work to successfuHyIa the church can offer universal and fyee education to the community it cannot come into competitive position with the state school The Church school is in another class Third The plea is made that our community is too small for the financial burden entailed by this measure I ob serve from the report of the Commissioner of Education for lhe U S that a majority of Kentuckys Graded schools are in towns of less than two thousand population and the valuation of grounds and property per school in some places is as low as one thousand dollars and yet schools have been maintained creditably for years Do not be come frightened at the way the opposition is piling up the figures A shelter mustbe provided and teachers must be paid but let a real and genuine educa tional enthusiasm seize the community and these will prove the easiest bills that are to b3 paid while the returns will prove the mostsatisfactory Fourth The talk about the repeal of the State School Law is of no weight in the discussion If there should be a possibility of such a repeal it would strengthen the plea for a graded school No changes in the state law willever be subversive to the interests of the graded school Tne best feature in the graded school is that it gives the com munity a free hand inits management with state cooperation Any other character of state school must give to the state a free hand with the cooperation of the community Which is the more desirable it is easy to see The state may probably will exclude the Bible from its own High School It will make no such interference with the graded school The community will select its wisest safest and best men to manage the shools interests with no partisan or ecclesiastical bias True the exist ing law may be repealed but he is no prophet who does not perceive that Kentucky is waking up from a too long slumber of indifference to the education of her citizens Something has to be done and heroically done The most radical educational measures are to be expected from the Capitol Fifth The heart of our people is restless over existing conditions and are demanding something better educa tionally Should this stepinadvarice measure be killed by an appeal to pre judice or by the skillful manipulations of questionable tactics it will occasion disappointment dissatisfaction and turn back the hands of progress on tne dial of our splendid community The temporary sweets of a victory for the op positon would result ultimately in ir raparable less to Columbias boys and girls the hope of the future glory of the town J Russell

Everybody should live on the sunny side of their houses as much as possible and allow the suns genial rays to penetrate the rooms Darkened parlors are fashionable evils True it is gloomy enough to be ushered in to a tomb like apartment where one can scarely grope his way to a seat and to discover when his eyes become accustomed to the light that every chair and sofa has on its duster apparently equipped for traveling to some unknown land But ladies must have their carpets kept bright and fresh even if their cheeks are the paler for it And so the shutters are tightly closed and the heavey curtains drawn But for the sake of health and beauty ladies let this be done only in the best parlor if it must be done at all Let the rooms where the family live be cheerful and sunny No lady would expect her house plants to send out full brilliant blossoms unless placing them at a window where the sunshine would invigorate them No more should she expect her children to show freshrosy complections unless they live in light sunny airy rooms Those Giddy Girls A couple of girls thinking to certainIyoung man they expected to call on them during the evening put up a job to do everything he did When the young man arrived and after the usual courtesies the first thing he did was to blow his nose which each of the girls promptly imitated with a gig gling accompaniment Thinking it a peculiar coincidence the young man somewhat nervously stroked his hair Both girls fol lowed suit Then he straightened his collar and the girls did the same with a boisterous laugh By this time the wise young man was next to their game Posi tive of his ground he stooped down and caMy turned up the bottom ofJM ts And then it was hi giggle Wh The Drink A Lon which is far enough safe started k a

th counties of Green Taylor Marion and Washington subject to a primary calla for SATURDAY DECEMBER 19 1908 FOR CIRCUIT JUDGE thatIN H W Aaron of Casey county is a candidate for Circuit Judge in this the 29th Judicial district subjectto the action of the Republican party I Since so many of our people are at a loss apparently to un derstand why I am not thorough ly and enthusiastically favoring the Graded School question and from the further fact that I am criticised for my position regarding it I deem it a duty as well as a privilege to make the fol lowing statement not as an ar t gument to change the mind of any one who favors the move but set myself fairly before those who regard my position unten able unjustifyable conceived in i selfishness and matured in malice Plainly and honestly speaking I believe that a Graded Public School such as our people have pictured in their minds would re suit in great good to Columbia A successful school as above- mentioned would be a blessing to any community and the spirit that actuates such a move is indeed generous and commendable but while this is true it does not stand as a fact that all who j favor the proposition are actuat d by the highest motive nor ev ery one who opposes it is Prompted by selfishness A successful Graded School is to be desired and no one in this district is a stronger believer in its worth than myself I am not opposed and never have been to a high rate of taxation providid the people rwho pay the tax are the benefi- ciaries of results commensurate with what they pay If I know myself am in favor of every move that will bring good to our community and will try to do my part as I see and understand The present proposition does not measure up to my conception of I advancement simply because of 4ih following reasons The loc 1 tion of the school is far from the Center of the district and is in fact on the extreme limits of one side of the boundary whose peo i 1 riple must bear the burden of sup- port It is to be placed in a building inadequate t o sustain r the high work of a Graded School sinless several thousand dollars t be spent in remoddling and adding to it The revenue to fee derived is too small to support the schooLon the plan4 desjrefl Now the foregoing isas I see and believe and with such con t frYt vibtions backed 15yiriy judgment of what I deem to be Jest for fT ethis community

under the present proposition would do what it should do I would pass other ob- jections and give it my vote but the more I studdy its features the more doubtful I become So after cheerishing the hope for several years of seeing a successful Graded Public School es tabIished in Columbia I am com pelled by convictions to vote against the present proposition I prefer present conditions to a strained effort producing failure receivedeThe district should be larger from which the revenue must be collected or a higher rate of tax is indispensable to create a sufficient fund to accomplish the noble and glorious purpose of creating opportunity for the j less unfortunate and booming Co lumbia Again it is urged that the LindseyWilson would be hurt I do not consider this serious It is an argument that does not appeal to me for I believe that that institution is hereto stay and to grow stronger all the while that it will meet anyI new condition that may arIse and that its friends over such aj broad country will sustain it in a progressive way Its work is a good one its field broad bute its influence for good too imj portant to hazard in an effort to experiment It is suggested that the two districts be consoli thatlweprestige as a community in the educational line without fear of failure without annual taxation without jeopardizing a school now doing a great work and whose influence in

He is strict ly sober a gentleman of high character and whatever he undertakes to do he does well He possesses all tfye elements that is necessary to make a Circuit Judge andwe believe that should he

spondent of thc 3 ew York Herald i when asked to relate some of his recollections of Morses remarkable ca reerHe sketched Morse who has been sentenced to fifteen years imprisonment for violation of the fed eral banking laws as former business associates and employees have patch- edl together various impressions of him Those New England intimates who mow Morse best call him a bold i strategist astoiG dangerous but not entirely an unrelenting foe They say he regards the numerous activities of 3ife in the same dispassionate manner Tvtiicliy makes him an interesting adversary at poker chess and bridge whIst fv Morses character was shaped in the decade from his twentysecond to his thirtysecond year With the business training then acquired hQ got into the Wall street game and he played this game very much as he found it played except that he stamped his maneuvers with his own personality which is dominated by his ancestry The remote ancestors of C W Morse were Nprsemen who settled in England and from them descended many generations of seafarers His grandfather and his father were tow boat captains Everybody knows the indomitable will of a sailing master The skipper treads the deck master of all he surveys his word is law Numerous generations of such strong willed masters of the seas caused in Charley Morse as they call him down east an imperious will If one looks over Morses business enterprises in which he has necessari ly shared cooperation with others one finds he always insisted upon being master of everything he was in In all of these relations with his fellow men he has been despotic Morse is generally loyal to his friends although many of them desert him In Maine lived a merchant now dead who forged indorsements to some notes He came near prison bars but Charles W Morse in order to save him and to save the mans family from suffering paid the notes This recip- Ient of his benefaction afterward shared in Morses golden ice stock deals but became ungrateful and talk ed detrimentally against the ice king Morse might have indulged in pungent repartee by relating the story of the forged notes in Maine but he held the secret to himself jf It is along the Maine coast and espe daily in the city of Bath about twelve miles up the Kennebec river that Morse as a boy proved himself extraor dinary in business His people were money getters but were not unusually successful He learned business from Ms father also a C W Morse but his lesson had not gone far before he was teaching his father His grandfather lad been the pioneer towboat man on the Hennebec and towboats played a major part in the making of the finan cier As a boy Charles Wyman Morse dis played his first enterprise by selling newspapers candy and other beguiling merchandise aboard the only excursion steamboat then plying on the river It was a business in which he was the only purveyor but he soon recognized a bolder business plan In blustery weather at the mouth of the river navigation with rowboats was disagreeable and so like a true de scendant of the Norsemen the daring boy rowed through bad weather doing errands for sea captains and selling to them merchandise which was worth more because of the hardship in get ting it from shore He went through the Bath high school and finally to college His father had organized the Knick erbocker Towing company and en joyed a profitable monopoly of taking tile sailing vessels up and down the river The father also did some trading in timber lumber and ice Morse never took very much to his fathers towboat business so far as the actual piloting of boats was concerned but when the towboat company was form ed he became a bookkeeper for the concern For this Morse got 800 a year It is said he did very little rbookkeeping however because he dis covered a young man with a fondness for such work and who accepted 300 for doing it Morse thereby achieved Ms first real finance when hecQI lected 500 a year without doing the work for Jt Ml the while he was not unmindful of the industries about 4blm Since the United States became a t nation there have been built at Bath nearly 5000 vessels The elder Morse built several schooners incidental to Ills towboat business This did not iraggest a life palling to the younger man however helcet cutting oil the Kennebec however did appeal to the ypunger Morse The pioneer ice cutter was nsunefl dheiesman and i knc the year ijttati Charles W Morsr e tr the future ice king was born ho had been taking profits from the river It is interesting that the Kennebec ice cutting industry and the ice king were both born in 1856 Cheesman had built the first icehouse and shipped the product to New York city His prosperity had caused imitation by many others so that by the time Morse was graduated from Bowdoin college in 1877 on both sides of the Kennebec from Thwings where the salt tide stops for twenty miles up the river to Hallowell were icehouses It is said that young Morse who was becoming seriously interested in the methods of the ice industry had once seen Cheesman display his hand which was garishly sparkling with dia monds with the remark See the dia monds I have found in Kennebec ice Soon after leaying college Charles W Morse began studying this ice business in all of its details Under the sys tern as he found it numerous farmers bought or leased the land along the river which gave to them riparian rights to the ice abutting their landholdings and out to the middle of the stream They housed the ice and awaited the coming of brokers from New York Under this system the ice cutters were very much at the mercy of the buyers A year after he was out of college Morse procured an ice privilege just above Thwing point and housed a cutting In the summer he sold this to a New York broker but he did better than his neighbors because he arranged with the broker that the ice should be taken to New York in one of the Morse schooners It was about this time that he in terested his father in the ice business pointing out that the towboat monop oly and the owning of schooners should be suplemented by the taking over of the ice business An ice dealer owning the towboat privilege and schoon ers could make the business unprofita ble for other ice cutters because the towboat commission and the schooner freight could be arranged to take all the profit away for the farmer ice producer Obviously a vessel owner could sell ice in New York more prof itably than the producer who was at the mercy of broker towboat man and vessel owner Many of the Morse vessels were en BaltiIIthe credit for pointing out to his father that they should take up the lcd business because these vessels in stead of going back empty could be loaded with ice for New York or Philadelphia In 1SS1 the younger Morse is said to have made 50000 profit on a cargo of ice his father had shipped to New York because lie at once reconsigned it to Florida and in vested the profit in southern pine Morses progress for the next few years then became a steady fulfillment of a farsighted plan He bought privileges along the Kennebec as iceI as his schemes furnished the There was a good deal of competitive battle but again the towboats gave him the advantage His competitors depending oii sail got into New York two or three days after the Morse schooners which were hustled along with towboats He had already begun to profit heavily from his strategies which he executed with daring As rapidly as his business grew he patiently surmount ed the difficulties thri were

better work on the farm L C Brown tNew Red Clover Found The Bureau of Plant Industry has been experimenting with a new form of red clover which came from the black soil region of Russia The plant is practic ally hairless and therefore does not hold dust like the common red clover For this reason itlis believed that it will make a better forage plant for horses since it will be much less likely to cause heaves and will be cleaner and more con venient to handle Bloating in cattle is perhaps due in part to the presence of hairs on common clover If this be true the trou ble would be obviated by feeding them the new hairless Orel clover Another objection to the common red clover is that it matures much earlier thaji timothy with which it is usually sown It is thus impossible to harvest the mixture at a time when the full value of both the clover and timothy j can be obtainediThe new Orel clover matures two weeks earlier than the com mon red kind or at the same time with the timothy and at a season when the farmers atten tion is not so imperatively de manded for his corn and also at a time when in most of the dover belt the weather is more favorable for harvesting the crop without
