Court What is Best. In the Adair County News - of last week two articles appeared on the front page seemingly not at all related, but each in its way suggesting to my mind points to which I wish 'to call attention. One of the articles was to urge the necessity of of the people of Columbia and Adair County if thev want a railroad, and in it the 'following words occur: "There is not a doubt but that all classes of business have depreciated in the last twelve months and there is not that ready demand for farm lands and town property that existed one year ago, and in the last few months several families have removed to other states " All of which goes to show that we need a railroa'd and to call attention to other things. The L. W. T. S. was established here seven years ago. Since that time, and up to a little more than a year ago, the uninterrupted growth of Columbia was remarkable; property nearly doubled in value; families sold what tbey had elsewhere and bought or built in Columbia.

GARNET7 AND HURT ENLIVEN DEMOCRATS. Monday the 16th inst., was the first day of the Russell circuit court, and a tremendous crowd put in an appearance, perhaps more people than any other first day court for the past quarter of a century. They were there from all corners of the county of Russell and here were many representatives from other counties. They commenced to arrive early in the forenoon and by 10:30 the public square was alive with humanity and everybody working like bees. Up to the opening of circuit court there had been but little speaking in the present campaign in Russell county, and many were there to hear the Issue discussed hy representatives of the two great parties. Hon. James Garnett, Democratic candidate for Attorney General, was the first speaker, beginning in the forenoon. His speech was short, speaking only about twenty minutes. He did not go fully into the questions that are dividing the Republicans and Democrats, merely touched upon them, and appealed to the people to support him in his race on account of local conditions. His speech was well received, and there is not a doubt but he will get many votes in Russell county outside n his own party. He is as a lawyer and a citizen to the people of Russell, and many feel that it will be an honor to the people of this part of the State to have the Attorney General from this immediate section, and will vote for him as a matter of friendship and of pride. Mr. Garnett was followed by Hon Rollin Hurt, who made a strong and forceful address in advocacy of the entire Democratic State ticket. He took up Judge O'Rear's record, showed his inconsistencies, referred to the apostle of temperance and the County Unit bill, and drew a picture of the sainted Judge in the mteting held at Paducah on the Sunday afternoon when McCul-locthe great whisky distiller and President of the Kentucky Distillers' Association was selected as Chairman of the Republican Campaign Finance Committee for ihe First and Second Congressional districts. Every point made by Mr. Hurt was strongly presented, and the speech evidently was well received. Both Mr. Garnett and Mr. Hurt were warmly congratulated at the conclusion of their speeches. In the afternoon Congressman Caleb Powers spoke for abut two . hours in the interest of the Republican ticket He speaks very deliberately, but he is .not forceful He claimed that he was in high hopes and believed that the Republican ticket would win in Novemoer Mr- - Powers has a strong following in Russell county and he was given close well-knowh, attention The Democrats of Russell county are very enthusiastic, and several said to the writer that in their opinion that McCreary would carry the State by the largest majority that any candidate has xeceived for Governor for many years. Goes to Birmingham. ? -- " Mr W T. Qttlej, the proprietor of the Columbia Bottling Works, has accepted a position with the Mycola people and will leave for Birmingham, Ala., next Friday, accompanied by his wife and son. Mr. Ottley will have the general superintendency of the sales department of the South. Mr. Ottley is an experienced man,-an- d his extensive knowledge of the business led the Mycola people to make a deal with him. He will be absent several months, and while from home his business will be kept running here. We trust that the deal will be profitable to him, and the stay from Columbia pleasant his wife and little son. t-- j Mr Norris B. Faulkenburg, the circuit court clerk of Russell county, has purchased of Mr. Lilburn Phelps, the Patterson Hotel building, Jamestown, and will take possession the first of next month. He will refurnish the - building and it is predicted that he will make an excellent hotel man. His son who is a very polite young man, will be the clerk. A livery will also be in connection with the hotel. A. W. Pedigo, of Glasgow, was 'pere la3t week, buying horses.

H For Which Portland's Fate Had Been Planned. One of the causes of the Reyolution-arwar, and quite as important a one as the stamp act. was the wanton destruction of the city of Portland, Me., then part of the town of Falmouth. It was said that the patriots might have forgiven Lexington and Concord, but that the razing of this town, which had been peaceably inclined until then, incensed the colonies beyond measure. One prompt result was the immediate formation of a Maine regiment which was added to the meager forces of the Continental army. Not so generally known, however, is the tradition that it was due to the fascinations of a beautiful woman that Portland was destroyed and another town preserved. When the British commander. Captain Mo watt, on board his flagship, the Canceau, anchored with his fleet in Portland's inner harbor, he did not reveal to her citizens that the unscrupulous little god of love had been his pilot. Instead, on a bright October morning in 1775, he ran up the royal ensign on his fleet and at 9 o'clock began a bombardment that lasted uninterruptedly until G o'clock at night. Portland was unprepared for such a visitation, and there was no attempt at defense, the inhabitants simply swarming the streets with their ox carts and horses and attempting to seek safety by flight to the opeu country back from the water front. So close did the assailing vessels approach that under cover of the bombardment they landed .sailors who pervaded the town, setting tire to such buildings as had escaped damage from hot shot and exploding bombs. Before Captain Mowatt had completed the sacrifice he dfisired to lay before love's s of the, town was shrine totally, destroyed, including the municipal buildings, churches, public library, fire engine houses, warehouses, wharfs and shipping. All that he. left was a handful of the poorer hovels, every residence of importance being bombarded or set on fire and D.000 inhabitants left shelterless at the approach of winter. To make it practically certain that aid could not come to the seaport by water lie destroyed all but one wharf and took with him on his departure all the vessels anchored in the harbor that had been spared from the torch. Truly he had a glorious bonfire and in explanation he exhibited instructions which read: "Come opposite the town with all possible expedition, and there burn, sink and destroy." but the gossips of the time said that these orders originally related to Portsmouth. N. H., and that it was due to a woman that they were not carried out as written. Captain Mowatt and his fleet had anchored off Portsmouth harbor some time previously to his assault upon Portland, and while there he had gone quietly on shore and secretly visited the family of the royalist (or Tory, as the colonists called them), Nathaniel Sparhawk. Nathaniel had a daughter, a girl of eighteen, famed the country round for her beauty as her father was famed for his obnoxious loyalty to King George, and when the sailor captain saw her he proved an easy conquest (like most sailors where pretty women are concerned), and he found it necessary to be rowed from his ship many times in order to spend the evenings with attractive Mary Sparhawk. Her wit, eauty and brilliancy of conversation fascinated him and through her influence, it is said, the Intention of bombarding Portsmouth was abandoned, and Portland suffered In the stead of the town which held the charming little loyalist So what one historian termed "a wanton, indefensible assault upon an undefended and peaceful city" came about through a woman's smile, and every volley from the fifty guns of Mowfltt's fleet doubtless carried his thoughts back to the lass who had won his heart. The smoldering wharfs and the flaming houses were his btirnt offering to his ladylove. The Sparhawk house, where the captain lost his heart still stands; but. alas, the romance ended as so many romances do. for after the Revolution was over the fair and fascinating belle married a physician and a patriot. y three-quarter- ' j I JUVENILE PRODIGIES.

"My dear sir," said the twelve-year-ol- d genius, "1 beg you will be under no apprehensions upon that score, for if my voice does not fill your house my playing will." Writing for the stage seems always to have attracted the prodigy. Douglas Jerrold wrote his successful farce, "More Frightened Than Hurt," before he was fifteen, and Lope de Vega, the famous Spaniard, was not fourteen when his first play was produced. And William Ireland produced his Shakespeare forgeries, whicli were good enough to deceive the learned, when he was about fifteen. London Chronicle. Measuring Moonlight. The full moon is said to give a great deal more than twice the light of the half moon. The ratio is approximately as nine lo one. Taking advantage of the extreme sensitiveness to light of a selenium cell, experimenters have measured the amount of light coming from the moon at different phases. with the result above mentioned. The reason for the remarkable difference shown is to be found in the varying angles of reflection presented by the roughened surface of our satellite to the sun. The moon is brighter between first quarter and full than between full and last quarter. The caue of this is evident In the more highly reflective character of that part of the moon that lies west of its meridian. The Old and the New.

'Aeschylus, the celebrated Greek dramatic writer, is universally referred to as the "father of Greek tragedy." Born of a noble family at Eleu-- . sis, in Attica, 525 B. C, at the age of twenty-fou- r he Grst presented bimself at the festival of Bacchus as a competitor for the public prize and fifteen years afterward gained his first victory. The wbicb be tbus acquired was successfully maintained till 408 B. 0., when be was defeated in a similar contest by bis younger rival, Sophocles. Aeschylus, mortified at the indignity he thought this put upon him, quitted Athens and went to the court of Hie-rking of Syracuse. Of the remaining period of his life but little is known, except that he continued to prosecute his favorite pursuit, and that his residence in Sicily was of some duration may be inferred from the fact that it was sufficient to affect the purity of his language. The thirteenth and last victory of Aeschylus was gained in 45S B. C. On the manner of his death, which was singular, the ancient writers are unanimous. While sitting motionless In the fields his bald bead was mistaken for a stone by an eagle which happened to be flying over him with a tortoise in her bill. The bird dropped the tortoise to break the shell, and the poet was killed by the blow.

As a matter of. fact, under present social conditions the charge made to the wealthy and well to do is the normal 'and proper fee; the lowered charges made to those less fortunate are concessions. The tremendous field of the physician's charity is therefore usually underestimated, for it extends to a great majority of his patients. In olden times, when medicine was nearly all art and but little science, the fee was unknown. Like other artists, the leech received an honorarium, the weight of which depended naturally upon the resources of the patient. The popular impression that physi- dims make tbe rich nay for the poor is incorrect They extend their services to nil nHki nnd nil are sunnosed to Day as much as they can afford for services really priceless and impossible to represent adequately in money values. Any attempt made to establish standard fees by law is sure to work in- justice to the physician. The "stand-resuard fee would have to be much high-- I er than the average fee at present and there would have to be some method' 0f enforcing its sure payment.

Natured Fruit Is Remarkably Tenacious of Life. The prickly pear is said to be so tenacious of life that a leaf or even a small portion of a leaf, if thrown on the ground, strikes out roots within a short time and becomes the parent of a fast growing plant. Mischievous though the African prickly pear may be. It is not without its good qualities. Its juicy fruit, though rather deficient in flavor, is delightfully cool and refreshing in the dry heat of summer, and a kind of treacle is made from it. Great caution must be exercised in peeling this curious fruit, the proper way being 'to impale the fruit on a fork or stick while one cuts it open and removes the skin. The individual who undertakes to pluck- this treacherous fruit with unguarded 'fingers meets with an experience he does not soon forget Concentrated essence of stinging nettle seems all at once to assail hands, lips and tongue, and the skin, wherever it comes in contact with the ill natured fruit, is covered with a group of minute bristly hairs, apparently growing from it and venomous and irritating to the last de- - In dry weather these spiteful little stings do not even wait for the newly arrived victim, but fly about light as thistledown, ready to settle on any one who has not learned by experience to give the prickly pear bush a wide berth.

England are frightened away from inviting fields by the notice "Trespassers Will Be Prosecuted." They need have no fear, says an English exchange. As the law stands any trespasser who does the smallest damage injures a fence, breaks a small branch, etc. can be summoned before a magistrate and fined. But if he does no damage the landlord must bring an action at law and get an injunction. This costs a lot of money, and unless the trespasser is a man of means the landlord won't bring his action at law. All he can do otherwise is to ask you to get out If you go peaceably you can return an hour later and repeat the visit as often as you wish. Nothing can be done beyond asking you to leave again. But if you resist then sufficient force can be used, and if you show fight you may be legally knocked down, your legs tied and yourself bundled on to the road. The landlord may, however, play some tricks on you. He can saw a bridge crossing a stream, so that you will get a ducking; he can dig a pit for you to fall into, and he can so fix the stile you are likely to cross that you will break it, and then he can have you up before the magistrate. If you don't commit any damage, however, you can trespass to your heart's content. An Architect's Ruse. A story is told of Sir Christopher Wren, the great English architect who built the town hall of Windsor, England. It appears that a fidgety member of the corporation insisted that the roof required further support and wished more pillars to be added. Vainly did Sir Christopher assure him that the supposed danger was imaginary. The alarm became infectious, and the great architect was finally worried into adding the desired columns. Years rolled on. and in later times, when architect and patrons bad passed away, cleaning operations ou the roof revealed the fact that the supposed additional supports did not touch the roof by a couple of inches, though this was imperceptible to the gazers below. By this curious expedient did Sir Christopher pacify his critics while vindicating his own architectural skill to future generations. If No Damage Is Done Intruders Need Have No Fear.

Not only philosophers and divines, but some of the most trenchant satirists and brilliant humorists, were dull enough as boys. It has been said of Swift in his best days that "he displayed either the blasting lightning of satire or the lambent and meteor-lik- e caricatures of frolicsome humor."

Rise and Fall of a Tremendous Gamble In England. STARTED UNDER QUEEN BESS The First One Was "Without Any Blancks, Contayning Good Prices, as Wei of Redy Money as of Plate and Certain Sorts of Marchaundizes.? Though it is certain that the custom of holding lotteries was practiced in European countries as far back as the middle of the fifteenth century. It seems that this particular Idea was unknown in England until more than 100 years later. The lottery, in fact, appears to have been included among those many other Important things, both good and bad, that were Introduced to public notice during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, it being her majesty's express command that this ready means for "raising the wind" on behalf of the state finances was adopted. The first English lottery must have taken a good deal of arranging, owing, no doubt, to the fact that the people of that day required a certain amount of education in this form of gambling, for although the idea was first brought forward in the year looG (in Mary's rolgn). the actual drawing did not take place until three years later. One of the original bills of Queen Elizabeth's lottery has fortunately been preserved, printed in black letter and measuring five feet in length and one and f feet wide. It begins by announcing "A very rich Lotterie Gcnerall. without any blancks, contayning a number of good prices (sic), an wel of redy' money as of plate and ccrtaine sorts of marchaundizes, having ben valued and priced by the comic nundement of the Queene's most majestic, by men expert and skilful," and goes on to say that "the same lotterie'is erected by her majesties order to the intent that such as may chaunce to arise thereof, after the charges borne, may be converted towardes the reparation of the havens and strength of the Realme and toward such other publique good workes." There were something like 30,000 prizes in this gigantic venture, of which the first was of the value of 5,000, while the entrance fee was only "two shillings and six pens." James I. lent his "speciall favoure" to a lottery whose object was "the present plantation of English colonies in Virginia." the prires consisting of 0,000 in money, "besides rewardes of casualitie," the tickets being drawn "in a new built house at the west end of Paul's the 29th of June, 1G12." This lottery does not. however, appear to have been very popular, although we are assured by the historian that it was "plnlnely carried and honestly performed." for owing to the want of "filling uppe the number of lots there wre taken out and throwne away threescore thousand blanckes without abating any one prize," certainly a very generous proceeding on the part of the promoters. The lucky man on this occasion was Thomas Sharpliffe. "a Taylor of London," who won the first prize of "foure thousand Crownes in fayre plate, which was sent to his house In a veiy stately manner." Though to some extent poorly patronized, this lottery appears to have evoked a good deal of interest among the important personages of the day. for we are told that "during the whole tyme of the drawing there were present diuers worshipfull Knights and Esquires, accompanied with sundry graue discreet Citizens." As time went on lotteries for every conceivable purpose were held in Lou-- 1 don and other Important towns, with the inevitable result that trouble constantly arose between the promoters and those of the ticket holders who happened to be unlucky or thought they had been unfairly treated, as no doubt man- - of them were. We find, therefore, that periodical orders were Issued for the suppression of this form of gambling, though the law does not seem to have had any .great effect. At last, however, any one proposing to hold a lottery was obliged to send in a petition to the king, and in Charles II.'s reign we find mention of severaL such applications. One of these was for "the ransom of English slaves in Tunis. Algiers or the Turkish galleys or for any other charitable use," the promoter making it a bargain that after he had paid In a third of the profits he should reserve the rest for his own expenses and "the repair of his fortunes, ruined by loyalty." Lottery offices for the sale of tickets were established all over the country as time went on, but none was more famous than the agency of one Bish. who flourished at the beginning of the nineteenth century. This enterprising individual whose chief offices were in "Cornhill and at Charing Cross, must have made a considerable fortune out of the much safer business of selling tickets than taking them. But his prosperous career, as also that of his fellows, came to an abrupt end when rthe lottery act was passed In 1823. by which it was provided that after the drawing of the state lottery for that year there were to be no more of them.

On the other side a wheel Is rapidly revolving, below it yellow smoke is issuing in clouds from a huge brown cigar. There is also a large theater sign which suddenly flashes into view, only to disappear after an interval long enough to read it. It is quite puzzling to the ordinary pedestrian to explain the wonderful light effects. It is apparent that the light is obtained from electricity, but this is about all that is understood. In such signs as where a snake seems to be wriggling along, a cat chases a rat. words that spell themselves letter by letter and in all other similar signs the effect is produced by a mecba'nical device called a "flasher," which lights the tiny electric sign lamps in the order required to produce the effect. This flasher is driven by a tiny motor. The flasher is made up of a number of fingers, and each finger drops in its turn upon a metal plate that is electrically connected with a certain letter or series of letters, or, in the case of the snake or rat chasers, with certain bulbs. The flasher is driven rapidly, and in this way the snake can be speeded around its course very swiftly. Where the only effect desired is. a sign in which one letter is illuminated at a time the flasher becomes a much simpler device, but in all cases the underlying principle is the same.

"Some years njio." he said. "William B. Astor said one day to his head bookkeeper, 1 wish you to write out those 1,200 leases' indicating the documents 'preparatory to releasing the various properties for which they will be drawn and reduce each rental price 25 per cent for the ensuing year.' The head bookkeeper, astonished, ventured to protest. 'There has been no complaint, Mr. Astor,' he said, 'from any tenant as to the amount of rent charged. All are satisfied to pay present prices.' "This Is a matter of future business.' the financier replied, 'as well as present Times are not especially good just now, and I do not think they will improve this year. I am not, however, making this reduction as a philanthropic movement. It will be a good business investment for me to retain all of my tenants, if possible, indications are that business conditions during the coming year will force many persons to move into cheaper houses and flats than they have been occupying for some time. I do not wish my tenants to move. 1 know them and am familiar with their ways. I am acquainted with their needs, demands and methods of paying their rents. If they should move I should have to try to replace them with new tenants, whose desirability I have not tested. Besides, I should have to spend large sums in repapering, painting and arranging these various properties to suit the new tenants. By reducing rents I shall have a delighted lot of tenants, who would not leave me if They could. Furthermore. I will make it impossible for them to find as good places elsewhere for the money. Naturally, having had their rents reduced1, they will not ask for any repairs that can possibly be avoided, and I shall save some money in that direction, over previous years. Besides. 1 shall know the exact amount of reduction and shall be able to estimate my resources accordingly. If, on the contrary. I let many of my tenants move out the amount of my losses would be uncertain. You will find, if you" compare my rentals at the end of the year with those of similar properties owned by other persons who make no reductions, that mine is a profitable plan. When times improve we can release at advanced figures, and undoubtedly to the same tenants.' "The bookkeeper learned a lesson in finance, the leases were drawn accordingly, and Astor did not lose a tenant." New York Press. LOUISVILLE TIMES FOR 1911 BRIGHTER, BETTER,!

"There Is one thing no one has ever seen an elephant do either in a circus or out of it, and that is to jump," said a keeper in the Central park menagerie. "The fact is an elephant cannot jump. Because, of his great weight he cannot take all four feet off the ground at once. He can make a 100 yard dash at the rate of twenty miles an hour, which is going some, but if he was pursuing an enemy and came to a deep ditch eight feet across he would have to stop short, because it is too wide for him to step it and he is unable to jump. An elephant is a great coward. He will have a fit if a rabbit runs between his feet. He has tremendous strength, but he doesn't know it." New York Sun. A Curious Illusion. People declare that they have seen a field of grass gradually change color during a shower of rain, thousands of mushrooms springing up before their eyes. This Is an optical illusion caused by the rain beating.down the grass. The mushrooms do not really spring up during a single shower of rain. They are there already, but hidden by the grass, and when the rain beats down the grass it exposes the hidden mushrooms. London Mail. !
