other public places in the citybont do it younglady unless you wouldhave a low estimate placed on your worth You may be as pure as can be but your ac tions are liable to case you tobe undervalued There is nothing more ad mired by a gentleman than a nicemod dest well behaved young lady arid nothing more unpleasant than to see a young lady act jude and fast Remem ber that honor is more pricelees to a girl than gold and when once down in public estimation it is very difficult to rise again A very trifling indiscretion in word or act on the prrt of a young lady has caused her untold mental anguish Treat everyone you meet cordi ally Dutfclont flirt with any one You are far better off without the notice or attention of those attracted to you by such a course DrQwnedin The Cumberland v

EDDING Mr W E Jeffries Vaughan NMf Married to Miss Nona Jeifriest of This Place s FAMILY AND A FEW FRIENDS PRESENT Last Wednesday evening at S30 in the presence of the home people anda few intimate friends Miss Nona Jef fries a daughter of the late W F Jeffries and one of Columbias best young women was married to Mr W E Jeffries a prominent business man of Vaughan N M The ceremony was 5tperformedby Rev B M Currie pastor of the bride Soon after the ceremony the couple left itt a surrey for Campbells ville where they took the train for the i home of the groom carrying the best wishes of every body in this community- Mr Jeffries is a native of Larue county Ky where for a number of years he was engaged in the mercantile busi ness As a test of the brides popularity she received a number of handsome presents penjsfreets it is a fact known to every body in Columbia that there are no suitable building lots with an outlet to a street in the corporat limits of the town The town is filling up with people and others are ready to come if building lots could be secured There are many handsome sites but they are closed in If a street was opened from the Greens burg road below Mrs Rena Paulls residence running through to the Glas gow road hundreds of lots could be sold for building purposes Can it be done If it can we believe there would be a ready sale for the lots and the population of Columbia increased several hundred in a very short time This is a suggestion that we hope will be taken up We certainly need more territory i Mr L M Wilmore and family left for Bogard Mo last Monday where they expect to reside Mr Wilmore purchased a splendid farm in that sec tion some time ago and he expects bet ter returns from the sweat of his brow We regret that our county must give up every year some of its most worthy and industrious farmers but that is common throughourt the country Mr Wilmore is one of our best men and his removal is an addition to the good citi zenship of the State beyond the river Our good will and wishes accompany him and his family Mr W P Summers who was one of pectableIanddent of Columbia having removed with his estimable family to this place last week He is occupying the residence- on Bomar Heights he recently purchased of Mr J W Walker In our Judg ment the people of Columbia will find this family a valuable acquisition to this community

What The Silo Does v J 1 Silage keeps young stock thrifty and growing all winter 2 It produces fat beef more cheaply than does dry feed 3 It enables cows to produce milk and butter more economi cally 4 Silage is more conveniently handled than dry fodder 5 The silo prevents waste of cornstalks which contain about onethird the feed value of the entire crop 6 There are no aggravating corn stalks in the manure when silage is fed 7 The silo will make palatable feed of stuff that would not otherwise be eaten 1 8 It enables a larger number of animals to be maintained on a given number of acres 9 It enables the farmer to pre serve feedwhich matures at a rainy time of the year when drying would be next to impossi ble 10 It is the most economical method of supplying feed for the stock during the hot dry periods in summer when the pasture is short Int With the Little Ones These two incidents are said to have happened in Lebanon Any how they are good enough te re peat One tenyearold lad was

1909 t The building and maintaining of good public roads in this state i is a proposition in which every enterprising citizen feels an in rt rest regardless of his avoca tionor profession In many

but if the coun ties so badly in need of substan tial roads would outline a prog ress in system and continue it a few years would bring a surprising change In addition to a live local policy we favor State aid which could be given in money and labor and not prove a burden tothe Commonwealth A ligiit state road tax would yield ajg ood sum of money that could 7 i Ib mannerfias a If no injury or injustice come to anycounty or business The labor could be supplied by using the convicts requiring each county to shelter and guard them while engaged in work In Jusmce to free labor convicts should not be used in factories andsince the cost of trial and all expense in keeping them must come from the people their labor should go to better public condi ti sand there is no other way equal to that

December f A Remarkable Political Fact The Elizabethtown News ife booming Hon Ben Johnson for Governor and in a recent issue takes the trouble to show that I every Democratic Governer since 1883 twentysix years ago has been born and raised in the Fourth Congressional district This being true it will strike a great many people that the Fourth district has about had its share of governors and ought to v step aside and give some of the I other districts a chance v This is said with the under standing that Johnson would be all right if he came from the Third or some other Democratic district than the Fourth The News says J Since 1883 when Proctor Knott was elected Governor ofIKentucky up to this time a period of 26 years all the Demo cratic Governors have been born andraised in the Fourth
