T t In i t J lq JttAq3 bItt unntp ttvj IfJ t itI VOLUMF W COLUMBIA ADAIR COUNTY KENTUCKY WEDNESDAY MAY II 1910 NUMBER 27 It Should Be So- Editor News In last weeks issue of the News Mr Fred McLean evidently intended a good portion of his article to apply to us as 4we are actively invline of work ing and since such is the case we feel that you will be as generous to us as you were to him and we therefore re ply as follows We are painters and decorators and believe our work is sufficient to satisfy any one that we are thoroughly com petent to meet the most exacting de mandsJS5e have done considerable work in this city our first work being in the inside of the Courthouse and up to date no complaints of incompe tent w rk has reached us We feel that it is hpt a crimo to seek work to acc ptori4 give employment at home or abroad that it is better for the world and all lines of business and employment to reach out beyond the shade that surrounds home But before this is done we believe in thorough preparation It is but natural that those who want artistic painting and decorating will seek the most skilled within their reach and that such an act is but jus tice to their own interests and not dis loyalty to home talent If Mr McLean meant to discourage those who need our services from deal ing with us merely because we do not pay taxes within the corporate limits of Columbia if he meant to place us on the footing of cheap European Laborers he is mistaken We are both Amer ican born and full fledged Kentuckians If he meant to display his powers as a writer probing deep into the relm of thought we feel that his efforts and position are both within the limits of sympathy- t We are busy men at home and abroad and dislike to make a statement for publication but in justice to ourselves and to those for whom we may work we feel that this is justifiable Should Mr McLean visit our town or should his skill as a painter ever be called be yond the north bank of the Green river we will extend to him a cordial wel come We are here with several con tracts yet to fill and are ready to figure with others who may need our services He has said his say and we have said ours Waddell Gilbert Bargains at A tlovious I will sell at reduced prices for 30 days my entire line of mens and boys suits mens and boys hats Also a nice line of men women and childrens slippers Call and see my goods and get my prices and I think you will find I will save you money A Hovious Knifley Ky Death of a WellKnown Colored Man Uncle Wilson Johnston perhaps the oldest colored person in this part of the State died at his late home five miles east of Columbia last Wednes day afternoon His exact age was not known but he was evidently close to one hundred years old The writer had a talk with him about ten years ago and if he remembers cor rectly the deceased stated at that time ie was eightyfive years old He was honest in all his transactions his credit being perfectly good whereever he was known As long as he could work he was industrious and saving and died owning a very good little farm His companion died about eighteen months ago He returned from the burying ground to his home and was never again seen outside of it He leaves one daughter Mr Thurman Cox who lives in Tay lor county not far from Roley and near the Adair county line met with a very serious accident recently He was hauling a load of machinery and in descending a hill the break upon which his foot rested broke throwing him from his wagon the wheels passing over one of his legs below the knee It was badly crushed and at first it was thought that amputation would be nec essary but favorablesymptons set up and it is now believed the limb will be saved and that Mr Cox will be able to use it in a short time Prospects for a wheat crop in Adair county is not flattering We have talk ed to several farmers who gave as their opinion that there would not be a fourth of a crop harvested The Hes sian fly is destroying it One farmer reported that his crop appeared to be doing fine but upon examination he 4 Jiscovered that the tiJU1ad ruined it St Marys Baseball team will be here next Saturday and will

was owned by Melvin Blair Glenville and containing a great deal of corn and hay and some stock was burned last Thursday night One cow and a fine saddle horse were consumed The horse belonged to Mr Jo Miller who was spending the night with Mr Blair The loss is estimated at one thousand dollars As Rome Does We know some folks who always tell How everything should be And others want to talk of things That they dont like to see While proud to know we never did Incline to lean that way Wed like to mention some few things That other people say Each politician plainly sees Were left as sure as fate Unless the voters should decide To have him legislate Though one may be a mutton head Yet two are best in law Although a very costly one Youl find it mostly jaw The patient may be living still But at a starving rate Who paid one half the Doctors bill With all of his estate Too many thrive on gospel food By either hook or crook But were it not for evils root Wedread it in the book Now gravel all

the worldand instead of denouncing it you had better get down on your knees and thank God that you live now And yet in this agreeable world there are a great many agreeable people who persist in seeing the wrong side of everything There is the fault finder Sometimes he joins a church and the church has its hands full He criticises everything Wishes the minister would not preach so long Thinks hes too argumentative and didactic Is dissatisfied with the choir and disposed ts pick fiaws in the fi nancial arrangements He sighs and groans and growls and grumbles and whines all the way unto Heaven He frets and stews and stings himself and others He is like a porcupineall quills like a crawfishalways going backwards and we dont see for the life of us how he will ever get to heaven unless he goes in that same way then most likely he will stop at the gate to pick a quarrel with Saint Peter When he is fairly inside we are afraid he wont enjoy it The singing will be pitched too high the exercises dull the services too long We shouldnt wonder at all if he spent the first century or two squinting at the wall to see if it was exactly plumb What is the matter with such people 1 The trouble is not in their surroundings but in them selves Ifthe heart is right all is right If the heart is wrong shouldiindeed but still his own by which to keep his heart warm and face bright Pick up the marigolds and daises in your path instead of hunting for thistles and thorns Hang your blinds so as to let in the morning sun Leave hooting to the owls and croaking to the frogs Makeup your mind that you have come into this world to have good time and have it a A Pretty Compliment I heard such a beautiful com pliment for you the other night Did you indeed 1 Yes You know Miss Punder leigh dont you 1 Miss Elenor Punderleigh 1 I have had the pleasure of meeting her on various occasion A very charming young lady I was struck by her wit and beauty the first time I ever saw her She remarked when some of the other girls were talking about you that you were not the fool you looked now to be Popular The way to be popular has been explained by one of the marshmallow magazines which inflates itself with the idea that it is directing modern life When you shake hands with a man runs the recipe Hgrasp the hand as through you were glad to see the owner look him in the eye and give him a smile from your heart This is a sure enough recipe It has been used a million times from Alci biades down to day before yester day It has been worked by some of the greatest frauds in Christendom to subserve their own ends The man who is seeking popularity posing f fU k angling for it usually doesnt deserve it Keep your admira tion for men who show you their real selves who when they are bothered or worried ormad or glad make it manifest by ap propriate facial expression and who are not constantly standing themselves before the mirror Minneapolis Journal ProgramS The Missionary and Sunday

one who knows him will think that he has been forced to retire as he has announced his intention of doing at the end of his present term The Senator is a mighty hard man to force as Mr Roosevelt found out through personal ex perience and the country learned when the tariff bill was under discussion Besides as Mr Al drichs hold o n Rhode continues absolute the means ofII forcing him are too lackingThe assigned is unques tionably the reason that governs Mr Aldrich has been master of the Senate because he was the Senates master on the question in which he took a militant inter est The tariff debate proved him easily the bestposted man in either house on that subject Heis the Senates most thorough student of finance As a trader and a twofisted fighter he can hold his own with the strongest- in either the Democratic or In surgen camp The place he has won was not won by accident nor without sacrifice The reek oning is now to pay and Mr Aldrich chooses to pay it with retirement from his career rath er than certain physical and pos sible mental breakdown The fear of waning influence through party defeat is at worst a fear deferred and Mr Aldrich does not lack courage The pity of it all is that his great qualities have been put to the small uses of self section and party With a broader out look and a larger purpose he would have approached great ness The larger pity is that his strength a f intellect and will have worked such havoc with the opportunity f o r greatness that came to William Howard Taft Cannon is done for Aldiich is going Taftr8 left to settle with the

which under the command of Capt John W Phillips did some fine work in the SpanishAmerican war and in particular in the naval engage ment outside of Santiago has been pronounced unfit for fur ther service The old vessel is to have an end worthy of its career Instead of being sent to the scrap heap it is to be used as a target for the great guns carried by some of our more modern battleships and is to be shot to pieces by thirteeninch shells In this way it is believed a better test for both the power of the guns and the marksmanship of our gunners will be afforded than has been yet attempted Spanish war closed twelve IThe ago and the Texas was eight years old when the war be gan Thus its life has been twenty years but it must be said that for at least eight years the battleship has been considered obsolete and of little use for a fight although still available for cruising purposes The average life of a firstclass battleship is now fixed at twelve years The latest ships with guns will cost close to 12000 000 War insurance is about the highest ever known Louisville Post a Improve the Yield The corn seeding season is at hand and there never was a time when the farmer should pay

homes you see That children have not blessed And they would gladly welcome me And for me do their best Just help me find this desert home Oh do not turn away Oh help me help me find a home Oh help oh help I pray Just think if I was your dear child Cast on this world so cold And others would not giye the aid You nowfrom me withhold Your spirit would be bent with grief If such it thus should know Then think of me a child in grief And to me kindness show cIm sure Id be to some ones home Like sunshine to a flower And thus make glad some aching heart Make bright some dreary hour But then you know I must have help To find this waiting home Because this world is cold and dark To one like me alone A nickel or a dime would help To open up the wily To some good home then help oh help Oh help me now

Fourteenth Massachusetts s district which never before elected a Democrat was accounted for by these same leaders on the ground that his opponent was unpopular and the doubling of the Democratic majority in the district so long represented by David De Armond is ascribed to lack of strength on the part of the Republican nominee not to excess of Democratic strength Yet in each district the Demo
