rels or boxes convenient to be emptied into a wagon Every one ought to welcome the move and show the council that such action is appreciated It is the proper course to pursue and we trust the council will arrange for a like removal every week or pro bably every two weeks will do A day n every week or every two weeks could be set for such work and would be a gr at help to the people and but a slight ex pense to the town Gentlemen of the council takethis proposi tion up and measure its merits On the 5th Sunday i n this month all the members of the Methodist Church and all others who are in sympathy with that organization are requested to kring wellfilled baskets to the morning services After the dis course the congregation will re pair to the LindseyWilson Hill and take dinner on the

cted Friday May 14 1909 is designated as cleaning up day We request every citizen and housekeeper to have in and around the premeses under his control cleaned All the garbage paper cans filth andrubbish put into barrels and boxes then have the barrels and boxes placed close to the street so that they can easily be emptied into wagons The Board of Trustee have engaged wagons which are to go out all the streets and alleys on the evening of May 14 1009 and pick up thegarbage which will be burned It is hoped that all the citizens will encour cleaninglup of Adair county and the Board of Trustees of the Town of Columbia Quite an Honor Mr Reed Shelton son of Mrs Georgia R Shelton this place who is finishing his education at Merryville College Merryville Tenn was elected Assistant Chemist by the Faculty of the institution a few days ago and his work will begin next Septem her This is quite an honor and- Re d was taken wholly by sur prise as he had not an intimation that his nam was being con sidered The first he knew was when the Faculty called him in and he received the information It is something for which tobe proud and we congratulate young Shelton believing that he will most creditably perform the duties which will be assigned him Important Notice r The Trustees of the Town of Columbia have fixed next Fri day May 14th as a town cleaning day and I think that is a move in the right direction It will not only add to the beauty of the town but will promote the public hea thLet no citizen fail to comply with the requirements of the Town Board forit is for the good of

murdered on account of their conversions and that he was out endearor ing to raise money sufficient to bring his wife to this country Many of our citizens contributed and he probably raised twenty or twentyfive dollars in the town He may be all right and he may not but be that as it may the Columbia people were endeavor ing to help the needy and they are satisfied with their donations The angel of

which should be credited at the regular 150 for each delinquent for the reason that he is charged with 160 each in the debits of above settlement But said credits should be reduced by 4 per cent

more than the average hen can cover properly and would be far better for the purchaser had he received only twelve or thirteen eggs says a correspondent in In land Poultry Journal A hen may sit faithfully stick to her work all the time and never leave the nest excep tfor food and water but what can she do if she has more eggs than she can cover She attempts to spreadI her wings over the them but when an egg is pulled in at the front another peeps out at the back and the result is that in the course of the three weeks hatching period there is scarcely an egg that has not been exposed to the cold at one time or another Examination of the eggs show decayed germs and dead chicks at various stages of growth and in different stages of decomposition Inearly spring especially care should be taken to set only as many eggs as the hen can comfortably hatch and the number may be variable according to her size and the size of the eggs 4ev Humble We are having plenty of rain now There has been
