and at that time it was announced that Mr Lloyd who was the Republican nominee for County Attorney of Russell would contest theI election of Mr J N Meadows Demo crat who was given a certificate of

daughter of Mr Arch Sherrill and is a popular and deserving young lady r Uardoniratoyers I Many lawyers dh Kentucky who have examined land V titles and pronounced them good are in a quandray as a result of the decision of the Court of Appeals several weeks ago that the State has a lien on land for taxes for a period of seventeen years instead of five years as nearly every lawyer supposed Under the law the lawyer who examines a title and pronounces it good guan tees that the title is good and if there is any defect the owner of the property who had the title examination made can go backon the attorney for the loss If under the late decision of the higher court the Auditors agents bring suit for the longer term many lawyers will have titles not clear which they have guaranteedEx Affirmed by the Court of Appeals In the case of Jeffries etc vs the trustees of the Columbia Graded Com mon School the Court of Appeals sustained the opinion of Special Judge Tuttle and rendered its decision accordingly The attorneys in thecase receive the full opinion of the Court later Wr Mr R H Durham manager of the Columbia team suggested a short time ago that a county league be formed

Coiumbia has long been accustomed- to making things go However there was a bit of lurking skepticism regard ing the Graded School experhhent and a demonstration was required to satif y all minds as to the wisdom of the under taking As the proof of the pudding is the eating so under its practical workings the new school has won out This fact is in evidence by its constant ly increasing e rollment and by the superb loyalty of both patrons and pupils to the school To have systematized the work and effected so perfect and organization of the forces in so brief a time forms ito o vn H6h tribute to a well balanced faculty The Board of Trustees is to be congratulated on its happy selection of teachers to inaugu rate the work It is to be regretted if any parent or gaurdian for any insufficient reason should keep a boy or girl from enjoying the excellent advantages offered There should be a large appreciation of the fact that the community has placed the educational chance within the Graded School as a material asset in building up the town it should not be forgotten that its real mission is for making char acter and for maintaining a higher or der of citizenship As such it will be fostered by all who stand for the com munitys betterment xx Give Thanks The Union Thanksgiving services for Columbia will be held at the Presbyter an church Thursday 1030 a m There will be a special

signalreleased and fluttered toward me Each adorned with a colored bow at its throat an made a wondrously beautiful spectacle I managed to capture two of these charm ing little songsters and press them to my lips This was not all of my triumph The duke of Alba presented me from his box with a beautiful wreath while the countess MontiJo the Empress Eugenies mot her threw me an exquisite bOuquetI and the members of club launched o nth e stage twelve laurel wreaths made of velvet and satin leaves with golden berries So you see I had no reason to complain of my reception in Madrid I have had perhaps more tumultuous receptions elsewhere but never I think any which touched rile more ff TT Shoulders of the uorsl Coming now to what is meant vby harnessy shoulders in a nuQdler the term is more or less erroneous for the reason that the position of the shoulders i should be oblique in harness well as in saddle horses asI who use the term mean to f gVey the idea that the therTIwithers more or less thick and r r tfC meaty This formation r as a 1 ready detailed presupposes a short neck and a stilted way of going both of which are very AcerII ders but all the most accurate actors in the highstepping classes have possessed sloping shoul ders indeed a very decided lope is necessary to enable any horse to show the correct sort of action which may be described as that the fore foot should apparently be following the circum ference o f a rolling wheel Forest King was the greatest actor we have ever had in this country Anyone who remembers the set of his shoulders will grasp the point sought to be made instantly when it is stated that the truest and best action is never associated with straight shoulders At that however much straighter shoulders will do for ordinary harness uses than for the saddle for in the leather they have not to sustain the superimposed weight of the rider Hence the applicationor rather misapplicationo f the term harnessy in describing or dis cussing the shoulders of saddle horses Breeders Garette Refused Kiss Took Bite Refusing her steady company Antonia Dorando of Nicetown Pa a kiss when he came to pay his weekly visit Rosie Punceno 30

love is as old as hu manity itself but love letters are of much later origin A recent discovery in Chaldea discloses that at least four thous and years ago clay and papyrus were used by separated lovers to convey tender messages to each other A billet doux written in clay and dating as far back as 220 B C has been found and has been translated as follows To the Lady Kashbuya little ewe says Giicil Marduk the favorite of Morodach this May the sun of God of Marduk afford you eternal life I write wishing that I may know how your health is Oh send me a message about it I live in Babylon and

stricken resident of Babylon to a woman who lived in Sippara a place referred to in the Bible as Sephar vain and constitutes perhaps the oldest love letter in existence JNew York American The Irish Legend Why is an old horseshoe sup posed to bring good luck to the owner if hung in the hall or behind the door Horseshoes were at one time nailed up as a pro tection against witches Many houses in the West End of Lon don had one of these emblems of superstition on the threshold and in Monmouth street there were seventeen in 1813 and sev en so late as 1885 Lord Nelson had a horseshoe nailed to the mast of his ship Victory and our forefathers loved to nail one on their house door St Dunstan was an Irishman not an Englishman as the Brit ishers claim He was recognized as the best blacksmith in what was then the kingdom of Kerry He had his forge on the Bay of Dingle and people from all over Ireland came to have their horses shod and to drink in wisdom from the Kerry Oow The legend has it that the devilwas among the pilgrims to the forge of St Dunstan He asked the the Dingle blacksmith to shoe his single hoof- Knowing who his customer was St Dunstan tied him tightly to the walland proceeded with his job but purposely put the devil into so much pain that he roared for mercy It was not until he promis edthat he would never again enter a place where he saw a horseshoe displayed thatSt Dunstan would release his captiveKy Irish American Thanksgiving This is the month in which there is a day set apart for na tional thanksgiving though a cheerful heart is thankful every day It is a good thing however for the people to be reminded periodically of the fact that as a nation we have much to be thankful for and whether we celebrate the day simply or with enough turkey and stuffing to in vite indigestion let us mark it by a resolve to be better farmers and better citizens than ever be fore None of us is too humble or obscure to exert a wholesome influence day by day If we do nothing more than greet our neighbor with a cheerful face and a kind word we shall shed a benediction over an entire com munity Let us therefore give thanks not only upon one day of the year but every day of our livescr A town is like a large family We are all interested in each oth ers welfare or should be A cutthroat every man for himself cornmunity The first lesson every family must learn

its proper proportions such as wonld have occurred through friction had no shoe been worn 2 Fitting the shoe accurately to the outline of the foot not al tering the latter to fit the shoe r Pasping away the crust to fit the shoe not only renders the horn brittle but is so much loss of bearing surface 3 Leaving the wall intact so far as its var nishlike layer is concerned The practice of rasping the wall for appearance sake destroys the horn tube and allows of so much evaporation from the surface of the foot that the wall becomes brittle 4 The sole not to be touched with the knife it cannot
