againstLebanon Columbia There were many enthusias tic supporters of the clubs present and rooting and guying were in evi dence In the first game the Columbia boys lost to Lebanon the score standing 13 to 1 This signal defeat is due to several causes one in particular our boys were all jaded having just playedGreensburg fore going to Lebanon However they accepted the defeat cheerfully and return thanks for the many courtesies shown them Tuesday Columbia went to the dia mond feeling in fine spirits and with a determination to defeat the crack ameteur team of Kentucky Bards town was wearing confidence on its coun tenance and to outsiders it was evident that a battle royal was to be pulledoff before the largest crowd that ever witnessed a game at Hoods Park Bardstown went to the bat first

been under con sideration The Fiscal Court of this county stands pledged to take and pay for one third of the stock up to 15000 Thenecessities of the road are appar ent Its worth to Columbia and Adair county can not be questioned and those acquainted with such investsments ancl the trafic could not fail to beleive it a safe profitable investment the light of all these facts it is Iln that the people every phe of so slow to act The Green county part of the road will be com pleted this fall and only seven or eight miles will be left for this county If this proposition fails the business interests of Columbia and the welfare of the county will continue in the same old way if not drop back a little Tq ague the worth of thjs road seems silly to fail to build it is folly and a blunder Gentlemen of Columbia wake up to the importance of this proposition and let us pull together until it is completed We suggest a meeting at an early day and if held every business man and all others interested in the welfare and progress of this town and county should be present The LindseyWilson School has proved its worth No one would lower its flag The Public Graded School met opposition but it will prove an advanced step anasoon the chilly waters of opposition will pass down the stream of time and it will stand an ad mitted blessing The road will not be second to either of the schools in

Citizen of Columbia Dies Very Suddenly DISSOLUTION tAME AT SULPHUR WELL LastFriday morning August 27 1909 about 9 oclock the business men on the squareS were terrible shocked when a telephone message

and the eleventh district to come to Lebanon andxspend a pleas ant day With personal regard I am Very Truly Yours 6 D Thomas Mayor We copy the following from the Bardstown Standard on the recent game played at Lebanon Columbia against Bardstown The main cause however of Bardstowns come down was no less a pers onge than Mr Stults a former Blue Grass resident now living in Co lumbia Stults formerly pitched for Lexington in the Blue Grass League and we understand got canned He lives in Columbia and so naturally he twirls for his home team when the oc casion demands it He dida little twirling last Tuesday that was good enough anytime for the Blue Graas League and we cannot help but think that Lexington made a mistake Al though Bardstown got ten hits they all came when they did no damage for when there was a chance to get a couple of runs by a hit Mr Stults re fused absolutely to be hiC We sincerely hope he goes back to the Blue Grass or some place before we play Co lumbia again We dont

Southern Life Insurance v Courier Journal From time to time there comes along Substantial testimonial of the Souths financial progress Development is a word constant ly increasing in usage in our vocabulary Opportunities that were once permitted to come and go unheeded are now caught and nailed down Languid indiffer ence more frequently than form erly gets a jolt from aggressive ness and the Southern business world profits as a result of the encounter A striking illustration of this latter day tendency to curb su welcomeISouthern progress came recently with the announcement that plans are under way for the or ganization of a great life insur ance company for the South with headquarters in Kentucky It is significant that the proposition has been received by the many as seriously as launched by the few Iincrelyl Twenty ten or even ago the announcement would have met with scant welcome Today it seems to have been received with a cordiality not un mixed with enthusiam Men recognize in it an agency of benefit for both Kentucky and the South and consequently a i personal friend The moment the swaddling clothes were ripped off the Citi zens National Life Insurance Companyan organization which is to have 6000000 of capital stock and 5000000 of surplus people began to lift up heads and take notice Sinc then it is declared letters an telegrams have poured in on the promoters from every section of J the South actully wishing God speed to the enterprise Tha- II the interest has not been limited to merely verbose sentiment is demonstrated by the substantail financial support proffered wit every arrival of the mail The man who is even more than a casual student of current events is impressed when intro duced to the magnitude of the life insurance business in the United States Out of apparent ly bewildering volumes of statis tics he can readily gain however a conception dazzling in ii j impressiveness and particularly useful in an understandable con templation of the real meaning to the territory south of the Mason and Dixon line of the es tablishment therein of the proposed Citizens National Life It is well to bear in mind tha the East in particular has until most recent years enjoyed what 1i nay almost be described as a monopoly of the lifeinsurance business While Easterners have tremedous profit to Lithemselves the money from Southern policyholders they must also be credited with pos Sessing increasing faith in life Insurance In 1873 the total amount in policies reported to the New York Insurance Department was 2086027178 This total had increased at the end of 1908 to 1062373 s 785 New York arg gregated in 1908 1725005000 Hartford Co fihas a ijopula tionof80000 It had life insurance assets in 1908 of 260000 Montpelier Vt has a popu d1000a n of 7000 and jn 1908 and 3tiad life insurance assets Jof 44 V t J ti j J tc 000000 or 64 per capita These figures however do not convey their full significance until contrasted with Louisvilles aggregate life insurance assets in 1908 of about 2000000 with a population of about 250 000 There is no end to the evidence that life instrance business is profitable for a community We are wont to turn eternally to New York when we study things financial One prominent New York company twenty years ago had a little over 6000000 of assets Its statement showed assets in 1908 of 236000000 and the assets have probably in creased to about a quarter of a billion of dollars today Four prominent metropolitan life in surance companies in 1909 had a total income of 337827188 Allowing three hundred business days for the yearthis means that these four companies alone pump ed through the arteries of New Yorje Citys financial and busi ness system last year upwards of 1126000 every day Indianapolis which is only a little over 100 miles from from Louisville has something like twenty life insurance companies and the business in Indiana has been growing very fast The amount paid for life insur ance premiums in Kentucky last year was 7273822 and the South is now paying out for life insurance about sixty millions of dollars annually Kentucky should have a big life insurance company It is the first Southern State to offer to policyholders the gaurantee of depositeeffectdwas provides that every domestic life insurance company must deposit thetpolicyholders an amount equal to or greater than the ascertain comh panys in is worthy of note that the men who fought for this law were the managers of the Citizens Life Insurance Company and the same gentlemen who are now promoting the Citizens National LifeThe plan in brief of the Citi zens National Life Insurance Company is first to merge into it the Citizens Life Insurance Com pany As already indicated the same men who during the past five years have made life insur ance history through the excep tional development the latter companyand the guiding spirits tOf the new organization The further purposes of the new com pany is to take over other com paws of the South and elsewhere which may decide t o discon tinue business or may find it more profitable to consolidate with a company of great strength There seems to be nothing impracticable about the plan norddes it appear where anything but advantage can come to the policyholders and stockholders of the Citizens Life or any other companies which may be merged into the new company No doubt the stock holders will see to it that a thoroughly equitable arrangement isof carried out for the exchange holdings in any existing company for stock in the new corporation It is pointed out to policyholders of the Citizens Life in particular rand the same conditions must i1 ifi 7ff Ntt f apply to the policyholders r of another Y company merged into the big companythat the consoli dation will mean to them insurance in one of the strongest com panies in the country and for that matter in the world There are purchasers of life in surance who do not care particularly for a big company Som on the other hand will insure in no other kind but no one objects specially to a big company when seeking life insurance protection Thus the new company will not only secure business from those who are content to buy insur ance from a small company but to those who want to purchase very large oreven small policies and demand great financial strength it will stand the sever est test But there is a deep in terest and significance to the general public in the organiza tion of a ten million dollar insur ance company in the South and an added local interest when it is considered that Kentucky will be the home office of the company Mr W H Gregory president of the Citizens Life and one of the guiding geniuses in the advance ment of the new company has in a recent letter to the policy holders of his own company call ed particular attention to what might be styled the Southern phase of the situation The points cannot be well stated more clear ly and we quote from his letter The tremendous power gain ed by Southern people in the or ganization of this company is the check it will put on the flow of millions of dollars annually in life insurance premiums from the South to the North and East I believe confidently that this will be one of the greatest things ever done financially for the South The South is coming to the front It is making more prog ress than any other section of the country Southern people have been awakened to the great power they have once they band together Take other lines of businessthe cotton mills for instance The South once sent its cotton to New England There it was manufactured and sent back and sold at a goodly profit The South paid the freight to New England on the raw mater ial paid the freight back on the finished product and paid the manufactures in New England a profit on the goods handled and capital invested to say nothing of the millions of dollars left there to pay Northern labor But it is changing the order of things The capital of twenty one millions once invested in cot ton mills in the South has inre cent years increased to three hundred millions The people of the South at one time did not appreciate just what the cotton crop amounted to snd I daresay some do not yet appreciate just what it means Some probably do not know that every panic this country has experienced in years has been checked and stop ped by the cotton crop The people who raise cotton are a power And they are beginning to realize it And likewise Southern people are beginning to realize their power in the insurance world v The thing that we wish to accomplish now is to have a company strong enougfrto take care of the immense v lumeofbusi = ness in the South You can ap l d f i4fiij1 j predate just what that means wasIsurance companies had practical ly no business on their books You may be surprised therefore when I tell you that the Southern companies today are carry ing nearly one third of a billions of dollars of life insurance The amount is stupendous yet it is only about 3 per cent of the to tal amount of insurance carried in the United States The big banks of the North and East have been built up large ly by life insurance money with South all these years paying the freight as it were and the banks themselves have in turn been a powerful factor in commercial development of the North and East Yet the South pays out enough money each year in premiums for life insurance to build up some of the strongest banks in the world in the South The business associates and the friends of Mr Gregory Mr Helm Bruce Mr Charles D Pearce and the other gentlemen who are striving industriously for the success of this great enterprise have confidence in their ability to carry it out KentuckyI will apparently have every good reason to pride herself on being able to furnish the home for the company But greatest good will come to the largest number by people of the South being able to lay proud claim to one more great and powerful institution destined to go through genera tions to come as a monument erected Southland development and enterprise rS GQ With aRush The demand for that

the sloughs is a very good one Some of it has been laid by and in some places the farmers are making the last trips up and down the long rows loosening soil which had become slight caked from the

Mr Miller went to Hawkeye the home of Hill last night to further investigate the matter The cause of the investigation is brought about by two conflict ing claims for a pension for Jacob J Hill After Hill had been ab moredcepting the presumption of the law that he was dead applied to the government for a pension Hill had served in the federal army in the Sixtyeighth Missou ri regiment The alleged widow was refused a pension because oshethat her husband was dead A few years ago she applied again Jfor a pension In the meantime an application from Hill himself under an alias of Jacob J Hal was received by the pension ofi cers Hill was in Texas Papers of the applicants were sent to Pension Examiner Miller of this city to investigate the claims of Mrs Hill and to a Pen 5fHall The Texas examiner failed or to find the man but found traces of him and learned that he was headed for Missouri He wrote to Mr Miller that the man would likely reach his old home th summer sI Mr Miller went to

will now be made to deter mine whether the returned man is the same Hill who left his agonInvestigation showed identity of Hill and Hall and that Hill had remarried in Texas fini der assumed name of Hall after leaving his Missouri wifeand then deserted the Texas wife and three children to return to the Missouri wife on the 14th inst It also developed that he was first married in Dent county Mis

was here last week delivering plows LexingtonI that he was not very favorably impressed with Adair county He said the land looked thin the briars and sumac did not grow large enough and it was rather sickening to hear hm talk of the dPiniofixthat they were dangerous to travel in summertime and that It would be impossible to get away from home in the winter He said that Fayette juntyhgd366 miles of pike while lwiU not i f say how many Adair has But now people let us wake up there Is nothing we could do that would i r rrifj Ut tL r L i 111 help the price of land more than to make good roads My obser vation from comparingprices fo land that has been sold in all parts of this countyjfor the past dOIjlarswhile in Fayette county with their 366 miles of pike and land that will not produce any better than ours would Jwith the same kind of care the average price per acre is about one hundred and seventyfive dollars W e sitback and wish for a railrsad but friends it will never come unti we put our public roads in shape for traveling Railroads and poor public roads will not work together So let us improve our farms and build a few good pub lic roads and the first thing you know we will have a railroad and then the average price per aer forland will climb the ladder to something like one hundred dol lars for I verily believe that if we will properly rotate our crops stop the washes and use the lat est methods of cultivation Adair can be made the banner farming county in Ky Mr Gibson tells me that he has found fields o f corn in Adair county that he did not think would average three barrels per acre Very likely there is a number of such places in Adair county but I s the land to blame No Select the rich est fields in Fayette county and put in corn for thirty consecutive years take every thing off that you can get and put nothing back just half break and cultivate it allaand if it makes three barrels of corn per acre Ill give it up tha- I do not know anything soil or farming and will forever hold my tongue when farming is being discussed I do not desire to take up space uselessly but while I am on the subject I wish to give few figures Take your land in Fayette county that will cost yoir175 per acre put it inj corn it will yield abot 10 barrels put it in tobacco it will make about 800 pounds Thus a re turn of 17 per cent on corn o about 68 per cent on tobacco 0 course this is less the cost of production Then come to Adair Your land cost 10 per acre put it in corn cultivate just like youI did in Fayette it will yield 10 barrels per acre or put it in tobacco j it will yield 1000 pounds per acre Thus the return would angd e is the same difference with wheat and other cropstThere is another young lady in this community She put in her appearence on
