NUMBER t f Jk Off for Central City. Rev. B. M. Currie, the popular minister, who has been the pastor of the congregation here, for the past two years, left with his family, last Saturday, for Central City, where he was assigned for this Conference year. He is an excellent preacher, and a very attentive pastor, possessing a very sociable disposition, quick to make friends, and at his new location he and his family will be appreciated. The Columbia Church and the Church at Tabor largely increased their membership under Mr. Currie 'a ministry, as he is an untiring worker. The Methodist peo-.pl- e and the residents of Columbia disliked the parting with this very excel- Goes to Cincinnati. ,Mr. Geo. R. Miller, who is one of the best known traveling men out of Kentucky, and who has been with the National Candy Company, Louisville, for fifteen years, tendered his resignation last week, and will, the first of January, go with Rinehart & Newton Company, same business, Cincinnati. This is one of the largest candy concerns in the United States. Mr. Miller will have charge of the jobbing trade of all the Southern States. He is a fine business man, popular and very reliable, and. there is not a doubt but he will command a very large business. Mr. Miller is on the most friendly terms with his former employers, a large increase in salary being the inducement to change firms. His home people have perfect confidence in his ability to increase his trade, and are satisfied that he will be one of the leading men of Rinehart & Newton Company, Cincinnati.

He walked upon his toes and seemingly with great difficulty. The leaders were cut, the feet placed in proper position, and the physicians says in a short time the young man will walk naturally. Dr J. H Grady, who witnessed the operation, says that it was scientifically performed. This is certain'y relief to the young man, to the entire Todd family and friends generally. Bishop T. C.

A few months ago Mr Taylor was married "to Miss Louise Hancock, a young lady who spent a year here teaching in the and who made many friends during her stay She gave her hus band such a glowing description of Columbia and the surrounding country, that he became interested, and came here prospecting.

Seven-thirtcame and went; the early summer twilight deepened while a fam ily of screech owls discussed their af fairs under their breath; S o'clock came and still no audience. A buggy rattled on the road below, and a voice called shrilly: "Hello! Anybody up there?" "Yes, and I want to get in to put my lantern in place." answered the lecy ton's beautiful new Country club and splendid residences, surrounded by magnificent old forest trees. Too much cannot be said or written about this wonderful dairy farm of Mr. Haggin's. The creamery, where the milk is cooled, bottled and double sealed for delivery in Lexington, is an artistic building of rough stone. The huge dairy barn is of concrete, brick and tiling, which gives it the appearance of some splendid county institu tion. Men in immaculate white uniforms were moving about the barn getting ready to milk the 42. registered Jersey cows that would soon be brought in from the hundreds of acres of blue gr:iss over which they roa"m. Glancing at the doors and windows. I saw that they were covered with screening to keep out the flies, while water pipes and hose were everywhere to insure absolute cleanliness. I was very much impressed with the beauty, comfort and magnitude of everything I saw. so ns T left the barn I asked: "Where do you get this tremendous supply of water? I saw hoe and piping everywhere and a huge tower by the reamery." "We have a complete pumping plant across country on the far edge of the farm at Russell's cave." I drove to Russell's cave and found a perfect pumping outfit, even to a double filter that the water might be as pure as it was possible to make it.

K..U THE ADAIh COUNTY NEWS FREE REMEDY HELPS CHILDREN Many a mother has learned of a "way of avoiding sickness in her family, especially among the children, by ike use of a free sample bottle of the famous laxative, Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. This offer of the doctor's to send a free sample bottle has been responded to by thousands of women in all parts of America. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a truly wonderful laxative and especially adapted to the needs of babies and children because it is pleasant to taste and no child will refuse it.
