have rendered and you hare exercised tH i virtuose of gratitude in the full perfection of its beauty Thanks tfaii W pm t Ti Jrt 1 NG v A Tribute The sad news of tHe death of Judge R B Dohoney came to me as a great bereavement He was a fellow student with me at the M arid F High School where we received instructions from that grand old man the Rev John L McKte Judge Dohoney was an ideal man He was one of the best men I ever knew Plain easy to approach and made every one pleased to be in his presence He was extremely popu lIar with all the students and all sought his company He was a man of ability and his mind was capable of grasping and solving the most abstruce ques tions He was a newt student and in my minds eye I can plainly seeu his majestic form at the blackboard demon strating a problem in Geometry After leaving school I was fortunate at in tervals in meeting him and I always found him the same genial and upright andnfree from all vanity and egotism LMy sadness is intensified from the fact that there remains of my fellow students in Adair county only three as far as my knowledge extends Hon H C Baker W W Bradshaw and George W Flowers I would fain place a wreath on the

about townz for the Town Marshal to examine their vehicles We do not know but it istsaid that it is a common thing for whisky vendors to visit Columbia after dark hut in the case above cited thea the man was here selling in broad day light The advertisement of the Reed Hard ware Company will be found in another column This firm is composed of some of our best business men who knowE the needs of the country and are willing to supply it The opening has been delayed due to the fact that the building could not be completed At present there is yet some work to be done on it but not sufficient to

The very profitable and delightful week of prayer observed by the local churches last week reached high tide inI interest over the discussion of the topicI Intemperance and Gambling The subject was so worded by the program makers as to require the consideration of local needs The several speakers for the evening dispassionately but frankly spoke to the point at issue There was a surprising uninimity of opinion relating to the belief that the laws Regulating the sale of intoxicants were being wantingly defied in the com munity at this time as perhaps not in years past If this be true the matter should receive prompt attention at the hands of every citizen and by our new officials in both town and county It is safe to conclude that this evil will grow if not promptly met with a stubborn unyielding public sentiment Let suspicious places and persons be duly watched and when detected in complicity with the crime of boot legging be exposed punished and branded as enemies to t he public good To tinue to harbor such an existing conI to suffer the moral atmosphere community to become poisoned And when this is done gambling licentious ness and infidility to business home and church follow naturally Columbia and Adair county enjoy an enviable re putation for sobriety and good morals and like Ceasars wife must be kept above the taint of suspicion Every citizen of moral muscle and spiritual backbone should be summoned to awake from his sleep of civic indifference At such a time for the church of God to sit still and be content with theories outlawed by time and wholly inadequate to the demands of the living present is to deserve the scorn of men and the curse cf God The one thing supremely needful to correct the reigning secret violations of law in any community is a wide awake active unsubsadized and incorruptable Christ conscienceWe too prone to follow the pernicious habit of fault finding with our officials for existing lack of law enforcement and conclude that this is sufficient of itself to absolve as fr all blame Our elected magistrates not our masters hut our servants OmIe us frankly toll them so They chosen not so much to make new cies respecting moral issues but to ex ecute existing laws without fear or favor Let them understand that when they do this that they have the unquali fled backing and hearty support of every good citizen Officials need to feel the support of the persistent com pelling influence of the good citizen at times The Master likened this in to salt adding But if the salt lost itssavor wherewith shall it salted Let us see to it that this influence shah not go for naught And forget that it is the old organiz legalized outlawed liquor traffic the enemy of every good that confronts us It is conscienceless deadly desperate and never giving quarters un itput to the death By way of it was suggested 1 That the pulpits ring out ina clearf e on the need of the hour the dose 2nd hold mass

Peace to his memory sympathy for those who have been so sorely bereft Mr G W Pickett Magistrate elect rom the Keltner and Milltown district failed to receive his commission inI time to qualify according to law and thereforedid not take the oath of office directed by law When this fact be ame known last week expressions of regret were heard from every one mentioning it as the failure was in no part due to the neglect or indifference on the part of Mr Pickett but due t6 forwarding the commission to the wrong post office After consulting an attorney of this place Mr Pickett made his mind to qualify and perform the of the office to which he was We are not posted on the legal part of such action but feel that wrong has been done the district the or the state and that every

Bardstown on Monday December 13 in favor of abolishing the saloons in Nelson county Bards town is the home of Congress- man Ben Johnson of the Fourth District Mr Johnson had been misrepresented in reference to his attitude on the temperance question by a wellknown State politician Of this misrepresen tation Judge Thurman spoke as follows But why should I bother about misrepresentations Is that not the way in Kentucky now especially when a man holds or is a prospective candidate for office Is not your own mostdis tinguished citizens position on this very question almost daily misrepresented and purely for political purpose Did not one of the Hart county papers a bit ago say that Ben Johnson own ed and operated one of the larg est distillery plants in Nelson county when I and all of you know that he never at any time had any interest directly or in directly in the manufacture or sale of whisky You and I know and every man willing to know the truth knows that the rec ords of your County Clerks office kept within a hundred feet of where I now stand bear mute I testimony to the fact that the first vote he ever cast in his life was for local option in Bards town He has voted that way for nearly a quarter of a century At the first election held in this county upon the question which Iwas three years ago he then voted for local option and I know and every body knows that he will again vote for local option next Saturday He is a plain man of few words and yet a man who is not afraid to express his convictions In my recent can vass for reelection as Circuit Judge of the Eleventh Judicial District when I was being fought by the whisky interests of that w District as perhaps no man was ever fought before Ben Johnson was the only man holding public office in Kentucky outside of my District who came to my assistance In a speech made in the very camp of the enemy with distilleries standing a II about him he boldly and plainly stated that upon the question of local option he stood exactly where he had always stood that he had always voted for it and always intended to do so He has never trimmedhe has never dodged Though he beats no drum blows no horn and never marches with a brass band you need never doubt his position upon any public question More than that he is a dry man of- the right kindhe practices what hepreaches He is one of the few men of my acquaintance of whom it can be truthfully said that neither spirituous vinous nor malt liquor ever passed his r lipsglorious example to the youth of this country But I matkeyv tern people of Nelson coun i Vty4know these things betterthan ir do r c ft J Report of Dr UL Taylor 1To the fiscal Court of Adair f County Gentlemen i In January 1909 I commenced r j devoting my whole time to the t i i public health I proposed to de vote my whole time to this very important work for the sum of five hundred dollars The Fis cal Court which has the fixing the salaries of all salaried officers of the county in their wisdom thought the amount too large The law says they must pay the health officer a reasonable compensation for his serv ices and further says that the County Board of Health shall indicate to the Fiscal Court what would be a reasonable salary for this officer The County Board of Health fixed the salary at five hundred dollars But the Fiscal Court thought that two hundred dollars was salary enough which amounts to the magnificent sum of fiftyfour cents per day On appeal to the Circuit court the salary was raised to three hun dred and fifty dollars and it stands at that today This sum I have never agreed to take The law prescribes what the du ties of the health officer shall be and without regard to the action of the Fiscal court I undertook to comply with those requirements He is required to visit all houses where persons have died of consumption fumigate trem and disinfect and make them fit for future habitation In obedience to this I have vis ited thirty houses fumigated disinfected them and put them in order In doing thisI travel ed six hundred miles burned thirty formaldehyd lamps that cost me thirtyfive cents each The health officer is also required to guard the county against smallpox Early in the Spring an epidemic broke out in the neighborhood of Milltown and Gradyville Had 24 cases Some very bad others very mild Had one death an old woman seventy years of age And one still born child Made twenty five visits at an average of twenty miles making 500 miles used seven disinfecting lamps and the county was clear of the disease There was no spread outside the first infection The hardest days work I had during the year was the burying of old lady Coomer who died of small pox Although many denied the disease being smallpox they did not wish to run any risks in the matterThe health officer is also re quired to look after cases of Ty phoid fever In obedience to this I visited where twenty pa tients had been sick of this dis ease Seven of the cases died and I fumigated the houses of the living and the dead In do ing this I traveled 150 miles and used 10 fumigating lamps I visited and fumigated the house where one man had died of Pneu monia During the Fall and Winter the county has been scourged with diptheria I made three trips to the Russell Springs Sano and other points watching for the advent of this scourge Quite a number of deaths occurr in different parts of the county some unattended by any medical help I ordered from the State Board of Health a free supply of the diphtheritic antitoxin and gave it out liber ally to physicians in different parts of the county since which there has been no more deaths from this heretofore unmanageable disease The antitoxin has been so universally successful that the doctors no more dread to be called to see a case it I r 1LLLi 1 I have administered the remedy to 12 cases with uniform success I have fumigated the houses where ten children had the dis ease some of whorvdied and some recovered one man whose child hats just died of the disease refused to have his house fumigated because nobody ever died until his time had comer ordered out the foolkiller and left him to his reflections We have had only three cases of scarlet fever during the year Two of them were in town and the other just over the line All rather mild I fumigated the rooms where they occurred and there was no further spread The law further says the health officer shall make a san itary survey of the territory un der his jurisdiction for the pur pose of ascertaining the exist ence of conditions detrimental to the public health including in said survey swamp lands stag nant ponds imperfect drainage sewerage cess pools and Water closets the construction venti lation and drainage of public buildings school houses prisons hospitals eleemosynary institutions and such nuisances as might prove detrimental to the health Under this rule I have visited and examined 84 schoolhouses talked to the teachers and children on public health suspended several schools on ac count of sickness in their neigh borhoods examined the water supply and analyzed water having suspended several schools on account of too much ventila tion improper and imperfect heating arrangements and bad roofs I undertook to lay the foundation of improved public health by teaching the children its first principles I would have had greater suc cess if a greater numer of child ren had been in attendance In the 84 schools visited there ought to have been in attend ance 5004 pupils while I found only 1762 or just 35 per cent That is 35 in every hundred were in attendance and 65 in every hundred were absent And this after the munificent appropriation by the last Legislature for common school purposes And this after the several whirl wind campaigns of the great men of the state to try to get up an interest in the common schools The colored schools made a worse showing than did the whites Out of 449 that ought to have been present I found only 118 there or 25 per cent Now it is clear to my mind that some thing ought to be done and that speedily The Legislature will meet in a few days and there ought to be some radical changes in the common school law I am decidedly in favor of a cornpulsory law one that will compel The law compels men to pay their taxes work the road fight when it becomes necessary and why should it allow them to neglect their child ren and permit them to grow uP- in ignorance when the state has made such lavish provision for their education I talked to quite a number of the teachers on the subject of a compulsory law and they without exception favored itsThe state pays into our county for common school purposes more than 20 000 and only a few of the children get any benefitfroth it AndnQwgeIitlemen of the Fiscal Court this is my years i- cr ij 1conveyance horse furnished for the children of the county more than 100 worth of Antitexin furnished 30

is now a part of eternity It cannot be recalled So let us bid farewell to our plighted hopes and greet the New Year with a smile and with a determination to profit by our experiences in the past Let us remember that time wasted is lost that our lives are cut shorts just so much But anon anon The past is past So with a sigh for the might have been and a prayer for future help and guid ance let us shoulder our burden and start out in life anew and so live should we be called before His throne ere the year is past that we may hear him say in a loving tone well done So now wishing you all a happy

been experimenting for sometime on the manufacture of de natured alcohel for engine fuel It has worked with all sorts of I tur11I fruits both sweet and Irish poi there is a considerable amount o alcohol in the watermelon bu the most promising crop so far tried is the sweet potato It is said that with the current value of the sweet potato in the Southern States it Is possible to make denatured alcohol for 20 cents a gallon This is a goo deal less than denatured alcohol sells for on the market The outlook is said to be good for all the e South Atlantic and Gulf States It is explained however9that i there has been a greater demand for alchohol since the free alco tt hol bill passed and the result is t that the price has gone up in e stead of down Departmentioperative distilling the
