Pages grandfather Soon after William Bridgewater took up his residence in Indiana he married- a girl who came to that state from Green county Kyand it was not long thereafter until his troubles commenced One night William caught a man in his wifes room and he shot and killed him That was about twelve years ago Wil liam was tried and given a life sentence in the penitentiary Several efforts were made to get him pardoned by Kentucky friends but not until last week did success come Mr James T Page of this place took up the matter a month or two ago opened correspondence with Governor Marshall and last week William was paroled arriving in Columbia Saturday night and Monday he commenced work PageI stated in writing if William proved to be a sober peaceable lawabiding citi zens he

Office Bah It is disgusting to me to hear the word mentioned and the yeas on why 1 make this statement will be seen later on in this article t- An aged gentleman came to my shop on last Monday and asked me if I could not be induced to make the race for some county office four years from now if the republicans of the county would nominate me 1 hastily informed him that anything so premature in its birth would be of no value and that I would P not consider such a proposition I respect old age and reverence gray hairs E but I would be most grateful if the subject of office was never mentioned in my hearing again There is one period in the history of my life that I will always regret and I will admit to the public that it was one time when I acted a fool of the worst E sort that time was last year when I made the race for the republican nomi nation for Circuit Court Clerk Every one knows doubtless what I want to say just here but things are so stren uous with the newspapers these days that only law and gospel are permitted space I have always been responsible for what I have said or written and always expect to be but let that be as it may I have some other things to mention No man who has any regard for right and justice or who has a con- cience can enter into politics these days if he expects to win because trickery must be resorted to bribery and other things committed which no hon est and conscientious man would stoop low enough to do Every man who knows anything at all about political trigularity knows that there is a certain lot of fellows who must be taken care of if not by the county administration they must have a little pie from the State or Federal Government allrightTheyis unknown to them Us fellows that are used to work though do not need anything because we can work as wa always did and it wont hurt us As to myself I would prefer working hard for 50c a day rather than beg the public for an office and this I will dp before will ever be guilty of such an act- againSo the gentleman who asked me to be a candidate four years from now will now understand why I will notI red McLean The Bassett Hardwood Lumber Co will remove its machiney to Campbells ville

outside stockbrokers or financiers not in membership with the Stock Exchangewere so called because when they first started Chicago the only commodity dealt by small speculators to any ex t ntII was wheat The legitimate would not handle an order for than 5000 bushels and then a lot ot places sprung up where men of limited capital could speculate with very small sums and these men were spo ken of contemptuously as buying and selling wheat by the bucketful hence shops where a small business was conducted in grain on a margin came to be known as bucket shops The term was finally extended to cover allIbrokerage offices where small lots either grain or stock were bought andI sold and it was applied particularly to those places where both seller and buyer did not more than on the rise and fall of stocks iIBows on Mens Hats tI Why is it that a mans hat has as band and why is it this bund has a bow invariably on the left side The answer is that there was a time when a piece of cloth adjusted to the head and tied with a band of other material served for a headpiece The reason the bow was always placed on the left side had its origin in the fact that in wielding a swordan accomplishment possessed by nearly ev ery one of consequence at one period of the worlds historythe bow or rosette if placed on the right side would have been in the way Its pres ent day utility is that it keeps most men from wearing their hats hind side before and although with most that would not matter with heads it doesChicago mostI the Moon Could a man live on IOn been put to an emi who

is up to the Legislature to do some thing toward securing it While the financies of the State are in bad condition the State itself was never so prosperous and never in so good a condition to stoat a small fax for the purpose of building goods roads Thirtv states in the Union have already gone ahead of Kentuck by providing State aid and as af result each one of them are outstriping the Blue Grass State in road buildingWe that at this time of general prosperity among nearly all classes of people that a State tax of five cents on the hundred dollars for aiding the counties in building roads would be the very best investment that could be made that it would return to the State in a few years in incrsased values and manyi other advantages more comes to it from all the other State taxes combined Such a tax would yield sufficient revenue to pay to each county in the State 5000 for road building when each county put up from 15000 to 20000 itself This would mean the building in every county which took advant rage of State aidto construct each year from fifteen to twenty miles of good turnpike roads or at least 2000 miles of road in the State everp year If the Legislature should do this it should require that all counties to receive the benefit of Suate aid should wcrk their roads by local taxation that a fixed standard of roads should be prescribed by the State Engineer 11Iby the State plans and specifica tionsWe believe that the most popular and the best way for State aidwould be to give to ea ch county in the State an equal amount of money provided the county put up two thirds or three fourths the cost of every mile of road constructed This would put the poor counties on an equal basis with the rich and they are the counties which needI the roads the most Under of this kind in the event a county did not take advantage of it then its share should remain in the State treasuryto be proportioned out the next year Of course there will be people who will oppose any bill which levies any kind of tax for any kind of purpose but we think there would be less objection offered to the plan outlined above siderIedNews A Wild Blizzard Raging brings danger sufferingoften

minds of the peopl- andgenerally while many are inJ dined to believejthat it will be built some are doubting every move made andcan not see in it the slightest hope Just at this time there are ample reasons to Justify the hopefthat a road will Ije built from Greensburg Co lumbia and in fact reasons that it will be done but to succeed it will require the liberal and united support of the people of Columbia 4 and vicinity The Company proposing to build has already had its representative on the ground and a report covering costs and showing receipts have been made At a meeting held last Saturday by a few of the in terested citizens a committee was selected to take up the proposi tion with the Company and to confer with the officials of the LI lz N Road This will be t in the near future and at that time a definite proposition subj mitted to the people of this and Green counties From what we have heard of the Company interested in the proposition and the andreport correspondence the building

interested Pin the advancement and develop ment of this county True several propositions have heretofore failed but they should not dis courage or affect this one in the least With a railroad the de

more evi dence ofthrift and enterprise than many towns double its size with good railroad facilities but if we had the service now contemplated its growth Would be surpris I ing Again the advance in farm products would add much to the thrift of the county and would save the farmers thousands of dollars per annum in freight as well as give them an increase in the price of live stock With the good

of acceptance byI Congress at least for the present When the opposition to ac the statue made itself on the part of former in the Union service it was announced by those in authority in Virginia that if the statue of Lee was not accepted nd it was required to be withdrawn from the hall Virginia wouldwithdraw the companion the figure of Washington Both of these are fine works of done in bronze the Washing ton statue being a replica of the plaster figure that stood so year in Statuary HaIIIAfter the figures were set up workmen and the matter of formal ceremonies in connection therewith became an acute ques ion Senator Daniel took the subject up with the relatives of Gen Lee It was agreed by them that the formal acceptance of the statues was of little concern and they would be leave them in the hall without further ceremony This probably will be the program followed as Congress cannot formally accept the statue of Washington and refuse that of Lee The resolution of accept ance of the Lee statue probably would pass the Senate but the leaders believe that in the House it would precipitate endless dis cussion and possibly fail if i ever came to a vote Both o these statues therefore will

school to work in the cotton fields If the farmers raiseds more corn and wheat and less cotton their sons and daughters would be better educated I am delighted with the nice weather we have down here it has been colder this past week than for several years so some of the old farmers say but still it does not compare with the cold weather we have in Ken tucky The weather was cold enough for about five days last week to keep the ground from thawing very much but it was warm enough by Saturday to sit lout on the door step until the dew began tofall This country is very low and swampy so that

Even after the millennium draws it is doubtful if a mans wife will be able to buy a hat that suits her ata price that suits him The Cost of Living The following is taken from the Kansas City Times a Re pubiican paper According to Bradstreets the cost of living is still advancing It is now withI in a fraction of one cent of the highest mark in our history and at the present rate of increase soon will establish new record of altitude This increase can not be attributed to the slight net increase in the tariff under the Payne Aldrich law It is more largely due to the constant 1y increasing greed and daring of the beneficiaries of the tariff in advanta of Icombinations rates of extortion It is true that a good many necessities of life are riot directly affected by the tariff But all are indirectly affected Once eliminate the outrageous provisious of the tariff and the whole market would adjust itself to a more reason blebasisthe basis of lower prices to consumers and smaller profits to the trusts While the trusts exact more and more penny by penny they continue to divide enormous profits on watered stock and enjoy the increasing value of their shares and they marvel that the country should be conscious of the cost of living It is a great system this system of tribute It insures luxury for the needy rich and sfor the poor they neither askit nor expect it 4 e IIiITIC I909TNcC b Accordingto figures compiled 7 t y 4 leooo ea l iJ by the United States Department of Agriculture the 1909 tobacco crop amounted to 949357OOt pounds The report gives the average price at the farm at 101 cents per pound making the total value of the crop 95719000 J We hardly understand how this- valuation was arrived at A com paratively small proportion of the 1909 crop has yet been sold and isIa bJy the government got is valua tion from the trust If so the figures will have to be revisedf unless the Government succeeds pooljplainiour Government should allow the American To basso Company a trust of the first water to go unmolestedand oJthenfor organizing simply to protect- themselves Carrier Cannot Buy Stamps People living along the rural free delivery routes all over the country have been in the habit of putting unstamped letters ina r their mail boxes withenough pennies to pay the postage and the carrier is expected to buy the stamps and put them on the letters The postoffice depart ment is anxious to break up this habit and circular has been sent r ito all postoffices urging them toy do all in their power to discour age and discontinue such praW tices The reason given is that it unnecessarily delays the carrier and in getting the pennies v t or other coins out of the boxes he frequently drops them on the 0 ground especially in cold weath L er when his hands are cold and Vj thus he not only loses time but 2 money in doing something that F the senders of the letters should r 1 do for themselves viz stamp t their own letters 0 i Grider Mo rriio +nd
