following That Judson Harmon Governor of Ohio would be nominat ed for President in 1912 by the Democrats and would be elect ed was a prophecy made today by Melville E Ingalls Chairman of the Big Four Railroad system and the Democrats most prominently mentioned to succeed Senator Dick of Ohio in case that Ohio should go Democratic nextFallThe situation in Ohio he U said today is really very sim ple There will be a State Con willIbe dO r v g ikfl Q 9 u f Governor and he has the confidence of the people He has more friends today than when he took office and even the Re publicans are hopelessly disrupt ed are still looking for a candidateHarmon will walk into the Governorship I hardly think that a very great effort will be made to elect the Republican can didate Would that mean that Ohio will be unanimous for him for President in 1912 was asked Decidedly And I think that he will be nominated and elect ed The country wants a man like Harmon a man who is calm and safe and who will our tired nerves rest I know many Republicans active members of the party for 40 years who are saying that their party ought to be defeated just as a lesson They think that it needs a spanking and when

in Merest of the City of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent countiesr Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as sec ond class mail matter WED JUNE 8 1910 i It occurs to us that several Democratic weeklies in the State are acting with but little judge went in regard to the coming race for the nomination for Governor They are everlastingly throwing mud at Louisville and its city government saying r many things that they are sure to regret In our judgment the Democrats of Louisville are just as loyal to party principles as we fellows in the country and they nave just as much right to their choice of a candidate as do we Furthermore we cannot do with out Louisville in a general elec tion When the party starts out to make a nomination here is Invariably a division Men have their choice and they stand for their candidates in the primaryI convention and go to Convention and use their utmost endeavors to land their man but they are often disappointed and lose out but true Democrats do not sulk but upon the other hand put their shoulders to the wheel and roll for the nominee It is out of taste to be writing articles attempting to show why this or that man should not be nominated All the candidates mentioned for the Democratic nomination are good men and we will beglad to support whoever is nominated In factwe are more for measures Demo cratic principles than we are for men and we believe that every Democrat should so declare Therefore we say quit mudslinging and instead say Boys there is a little fight on for the nomination but after the State con vention has been held we will all betogether and redeem the old Commonwealth and establish a Democratic government at Frankfort Hon John W Langley has been renominated by the Repub licans for Congress in the

it is true that a number of good people were scared somewhat but scared them I am sure that it not the comet for it lambLJthe only done and the ground for scare was in the windy tales told by the news

told in Holy Writ as a theif in the night wholly unexpected History tells us that Halley comet and 120 others have made occasional visits across our hori son for thousands of years but wars have been

many a man with reverence We are often told that morals are the same in every civilized country and that a modern constitutional Monarch is after all but a President elected for life But there is a difference There is a gulf between a European Monarchy and the American Republic This incident illustrates- it Let us try to imagine such a scene beside the coffin ofa Mc Kinley or a Cleveland or a Har rison or a Hays or a Grant or a Lincoln or of any American President on the roll that begins with the name of Washington- It is not imaginable It is un thinkable It is impossible We all know that Thank Heaven that we doIThis is not said in vainglory nor to assert that American men are not sinners as are men of other lands or that we have not as a people our share of hypoc ricy But at least our men in the nations highest place set no i such example as that which produced this meeting beside Ed ward of Englands grave Nora re their wives compelled by their love for them to forgive publicly

Levi Z Leiter and Marshall Field were working for him Palmer wasnt so well known but he had a good reputation in the trade and he didnt have to in troduce himself when he called on old A T Stewart to buy some goods After some dickering they agreed upon the price and Palmer calmly said that he would take about 100000 worth It was a little larger bill than Stew art exactly cared to sell young Palmer on credit but he conclud ed to make the deal and told him to come in the next morning and arrange some final details That night some big war news came and it didnt require any declara tion by the government to inform every dry goods man in the country that the price of goods would take a big spurt up Stew art recognized it as soon as he had the news and he immediately thought of Palmer He also thought of the big bill of goods Palmer had bought of him It didnt particularly tickle Stewart that thought didnt But it re quired only a few scratches of his red head to fix things to his satisfaction He wouldsimply tell Palmer that he was sorry but that he didnt feel that he could sell such a big bill on credit and as he knew that Pal mer couldnt raise the cash im mediately why that would end it and the sale would be off Well Young Palmer called early and Stewart greeted him in his very abruptest manner telling him how sorry he was etc but really he didnt think it wise business to extend credit for such an amount Just how much does the bill come to said young Palmer seemingly sorrowfullike Just 110000 Stewart re plied and then he straightway gulped for breath as young Palmer drew an immense pocket book from his inside vest pocket and opening it counted out 110 thousand dollar bills and laying them quietly on Stewarts desk Said If you will kindly count them and give me a receipt Ill be obliged as I must take the next train home Ship the goods soon as you can and when youre out our way drop in Always glad to see our friends For Sale Purebred duroc Jersey boars and
