may be of interest to some of your readers who are interested in the suc cess of the Methodist Church in these mountain counties to give a few items by which they may judge of the pro gress of our work The year that closed with our recent Annual Conference was the most suc cessful one that we have had in our history More than eleven hundred were converted under the ministry of preachers and nine hundred and twenty were added t o the membership of the church This will be better appreciated when we say that the Columbia District furnished more than one third of the net gain in membership for the whole ConferenceThere a very gratifying gain in financial reports from the various cir cuits The minutes show that from all sources we rsised for missions last year 2360 which is very much better than any former showing This with a very gratifying increase in the contributions for support of ministry indicate a mere healthy condition in all departments ofIchurch life The new year opens auspiciously A marked increase in assessments for ministrial support is gratifying to al lovers of the church and prophisies better things for the near futur Great revivals are rewarding the labors of our preachers and they areI helpful and courageous Bro Tally held two gracious meetings already re1 suiting in many conversions and in raising more than 150 for missions The outlook for the work of our local church in Columbia was never more hopeful The work of our former pas tor Bro Kasey has prepared well the way for his successor and Bro Currie has taken hold of his workvigorously and is already reaping results His splendid sermons are drawing large crowds and all recognize him as the man for the situation He has added 33 names to the Church Register and has organized a promising class at Pleasant Grove consisting of 15 members This was made possible WIat some monthsThe Epworth League has been reorganized the Womans work is taking on new life and 29150 has been raised during the first two months of the new year We loved Bro Kasey and his family We shall never love them less but we also love Bro Currie and his family and and mean to stand by them in their noble work 1 am

1 j Attention Christians Foreign Missionary work is a cause that should not be neglected and it goes on as it should year in and year out But there comes a time when the poor at home should not be neglected It is Christmas time when every body who is comfortably situated is giving and re ceiving little gifts of remembrance There are perhaps some poor people with families of children in and about Columbia the parents not able to make the little ones happy on the night of the visitation of Santa Claus Would it not be a good idea for each Church in this community to look at the situation and do something for those who are in an unfortunate condition It would certainly be a Christian act The poor we have with us and they should be made to rejoice on the day we celebrate as the birthday of our Savior In looking over Columbia we can not count but sixteen persons who were residents of the place fifty years ago The town now has a population of fifteen hundred counting those who live just outside of the corporate limits and are towns people for all intents and purposes There are one thousand and fifty in the corporate limits Ned Murray a colored man who live on the pike one and a

sections of the new codi fication relate to the liquor traffic The most important provision is that on and after January 1 every shipment of in toxicating liquors shall bear the name of the thebnature of the contents of the receptacle and the quantity con tained therein It is a notorious fact that practically all the liquor now shipped into prohibition territory is labeled as some other commodity or not labeledat all arid frequently addressed to persons other than the consignee Lets see what Congress says shall be done a tel the 1st of January Whoever shill knowingly ship or cause to be shipped from one State territory or district of the United States or place non contiguous to but subject to then jurisdiction thereof any package of or package containing any spirituous vinous malted fer nestedor other intoxicating suchrpackage be labeled on the out side cover as to plainly show the name of the consignee the nature of the contents and the quantity contained therein shall be fined not more than five thous and dollars and such liquor shall Llbe forfeited to the United States and may be seized and condemned- e by like proceedings as those pro vided bylaw for the seizure and forfeiture of property imported into the United States contrary- to lawwThe federal authorities have already sent out notice to all- s manufactures of intoxicants that their wares will have to

subscription date expired Every weekly newspaper in towns of this size are forced to do this Should we stop subscriptions when thetime expiresnine J times out of ten the subscriber would give us a calling down for insinuating that his credit wasI not good Rather than reflection or the honesty of a subscriber to pay a small debt it is next tc necessity for a home paper to continue sending the paper after the time has expired It is not neccessary for the city dailies or weeklies to follow this rule as their subscribers live at a distance and are not personal friends as is the case with a ma jority of our subscribers Ours scribers should deem it an honor to know that we do not doubt their integrity and continue to send them the paper after the time expired Should any desire their paper discontinued they should notify us and remit todate if they have not already done soWyoming Motherhood P1essI When God stooped to earth and placed the crown of motherhood on the brow of women he enthroned in the heart a purer truer holier love than man can ever possess This thought should be incentive and a stim ulating reflection t o all careworn mothers that while they carry the real burdens of life they possess the real gem that rules the I worldlove How many care less lighthearted indifferent creatures have be en transformed by the word motherhood into beings of love Then if God saw fit to confer the honor on woman of keeping his jewels did he intend her to be encumbered with the yoke of sin and yet bring them up for His messagesbheavily freighted with love seem intended for

overlooking an opportunity to become a financial power in the nation Although it practical ly controls the tobacco output of worM the product has always been sent to other States to be manufactured into the marketable article and to enrich other localities and other people than those to whom the spoils are just ly due Every stalk of tobacco grown i n Kentucky should be manufactured in Kentucky This State has natural advantages as great as any other in the coun try if the people would awaken and arouse to the situation The American Tobacco Qc npany alone declared dividend last year manufacIture by the tobacco growers of Kentucky Equally as much was paid out in salaries It is diffi cult for the most skeptical to un derstand what the Common wealth is losing in the failure to grasp

being given at first and gradually increased as the animals become accustomed- to the food Some farmers feed it mixed with cut straw twothirds of straw and onethrid of silage and all horses will eat of this mixed feed Some horses object to silage at first on account of its peculiar oder but by sprinkling someoats and bran on tops of the silage and feeding only very small amounts to begin with they soon learn to eat and relish it N Will Meet Lost Child x i According to the sty told by Mrs Thomas Kinney of Tren ton N J she is about to see her daughter after 26 years The daughter was only 17 months old when the mother last saw her Mrs Kinney says that she went with the child to a steamship in MissIter Miss Rice had been in this country visiting The mother went ashore to get something for her sister and the child was left in a berth asleep When the mother returned the ship was going down the bay The sister took good care of the child and when shegot her across the water would not be induced to part with her Mrs Kinnie had but little money to j spend so the little one grew up married has two children and is coming over from the old coU- ntry soon to settle in Trenton i I KIp Dairy Pointers Can you tell why anybody ivilV milk a cow that never did pay and never will pay If you can you can beat me for I confess that such action appears tome a profound mystery Some breeds are better for milk and some are better for butter but if is Tot all a matter of breed Much depends upon the indjvid andlbadA good cow will bring a calf every year and she will not go dry unless you turn her dry She will be even in the flow of her milk arid an easy milker For the dairy you want not on ly cows that will give the great est amount of milk and butter fat but such as will do this at the least cost for feed and care The faun counts a good deal in successful dairying It should be a good grass farm for the production of hay and pasture It must also be adapted to grain and especially to the production- of corn for the silo The successful dairyman must be not only a successful trader but also an intelligent breeder of cattle Often the best cow can be obtained only by breeding They are not for sale How woule you like to have an income of 15 a day Sundays in eluded That would be nearly 5500 a year A fortycow dairy properly managed will give it a How It Happened An American preacher

adjacent counties f 1IIItered at the Columbia PostoBBce as second elui mall matter WED DEC 15 1909 That the Republican party is at sea on the tariff question and that it fears the rebuke of the t people at our next Congressional election can hardly be doubted but still the regular party organ ization stands pat on protective tariff regardiess of its last platI j form pledges to reduce it and the miserable makeshift of the extra session to fool the people on its revision Not only are Democrats asking and contend ing for a reduction of the tax that falls heavily on the average person in the purchase of food and clothing but a substantial part of the Republicans are mak ing the same fight The combination of the two was too weak however to accomplish anything of worth in the PayneAldrich law but the battle is not over and the people are bound to wake up tothe situation as they face advancing prices for the neces i saries of life caused indirectly by a tax that plays to the greed of capital at the expense of the energy and mussel of the coun try The theory that protective t tariff benefits the wage earners and is maintained for their in terest has about spent its force i and lost its glitter The Ameri can laborer can better afford to compete with imported products from cheap labor countries than to cheapalabors in the mines factories and workshops Labor sells on the market under competition unprotected I b your government while the products of labor are priced by a combination sur rounded by a tax that shuts out competition The consumers f loots the bill There absolute ly no reason to justify a law that enables the wealthy class to con tinue an unjust collection from those who make their living by hard labor The iniquities of the protective policy are rapidly growing in disfavor and a sub stantial part of the Republican party is as truly opposedio that system as are Democrats The cost of living has outgrown the advance in earning capacity and Lstill
