Hiss Vara Hutchison Thursday Evening At Court House. Thursday evening. December 21 marked the close of the third year of the Columbia Public Schools for the Christmas holidays. The two plays given at the Court House on thisoc. casion indeed reflected much credit on the school. Higbee of Harvard, was without doubt one of the best plays ever seen in Columbia, Nothing but the highest praise could be said of the play given by the primary pupils. 'Christmas Secrets" came first. This play was given by the pupils of the primary, assisted by other pupils of the lower grades. Several of those who took part in this play were not over six yearsold. Each pupil performed his task exceptionally well. "Higbee of Harvard,, came second. This play was given by the senior class of the High School.- - assisted by other All who took part performed their tasks perfectly. Albia Eubank, who represented tbe wealthy mine owner of Montana, seemed to be a favorite with the audience. To say those who attended enjoyed themselves hugely,is putting it in too mild of terms. The audience was' more than pleased with the evenings enterhigh school pupils. Gov. knott and the Circus. When Grover Cleveland was elected President for.the second time, a gentle man from Lebanon was a candidate for the position of Surveyor of the Port of the city of Louisville. Governor Knott was this man's friend and chief supporter for the position to which he aspired. When the time came for making the appointment, so interested was the Governor in his friend's race that he went to Washington to see the President and personally to make an appeal for his friend to be appointed. Accordingly arrangements were made and Mr. Knott went to the White House. On being admitted to the presence of Mr. Cleveland, the Governor said: Mr. President, 1 have come a thousand miles to ask of you a favor, personal to myself and in behalf of a dear friend. When I was a little boy a circus came to town one day. Barefooted and alone I started out to the county seat to see the procession. When I got there the house was full of people, the streets were crowded, and everyone was smiling and cheerful because they were going to see the wild animals. When I saw the parade and the happy, laughing, merry throngs, all bent on pleasure and fun I began to cry because I realized that having no money I was the only one in that vast crowd that was not going to the circus. While giving vent to my feelings, a kind gentleman with a smiling face, passed by, and seeing the tears rolling down my cheeks, stopped toinquire what was the matter. I told him that I had walked ten miles to see the parade, had no money, no friends, and that every other boy in town was going to see the circus but me. This kind, noble gentleman took me by the hand, went with me to the circus, paid my way in and showed me the wild animals, bought peanuts and lemonade, and caused me to pass one of the most pleasant of my boyhood days. It is the son of this man that I ask you to appoint as Surveyor of the Port of Louisville, and I have come a thousand miles to ask of you this favor' A pause then ensued for a few moments, which was broken by the President remarking, "Governor, it-i- s a nice day out." To which Mr. Knott instantly replied, "Yes, Mr. President, but ad d gloomy one for my friend. Lebanon Enterprise. REPORT OFTHECONDITION OF THE Greetings. This is a week of festivites and enjoyment, and we send greetings to all our patrons, trusting that the holidays will be highly enjoyable, and that no accident will occur to mar the pleasure of a single p'erson; that happiness may abound in every home; that when the New Year comes that each individual will start with a determination of being better men and better women in 1912 than they were in 1911. There are no better people than those who read the News, but lowering clouds sometimes come, and if there are dark spots in our conduct, made e Old Year, let us go to a throne of grace and ask, reverently, that they may be blotted out. Ask and you shall receive, is a teaching that is as old as the Book, and he who contritely petitions the Giver of all that is good will be rewarded.

In former years, when the war department got ready to issue new uniform or equipment, all of the old styles were discarded and the supply on baud was sold at auction.

Washington, "about 290.000 Americans went abroad during the last fiscal year and spent fully $200,000,000 on passage across the Atlantic, hotel bills, railway transportation, amusements and miscellaneous purposes." Mr. Osborne thinks that probably another 200,000,000 is dropped in Paris by American tourists for jewelry and gowns alone. The "see America first" convention, which is to be held in Baltimore next May, is primarily to be educational in the line of 'its suggestive title, but one very important result of such a movement will be that millions of dollars that otherwise would be spent abroad will Gnd their way into the various avenues of American trade.

When the Legislature has the right to name the Prison Commissioners, then it follows that the Commission will eventually try to name the members of the Legislature, one good turn deserving another, until an endless chain is formed, and the State will be exposed to the open scandal of public offices being bartered 'the and the Com missioners subjecting themselves to suspicion and distrust. The vast patronage of the prisons is a powerful weapon in the hands of men unprincipled enough to use it, with no power to check their repacity or to call them to account for their offenses. They cannot only give themselves a life tenure in office, but they can create an army of retainers paid out of the State treasury whose devotion would last as long as they remained on the pay-rol- l, every party obligation beisg lost sight of in their desire to serve their generous masters. The evil of the present system is even more It makes the Legislature an appendage of the Prison Commissioners. It creates a vassalage that is foreign to our democratic institutions, and takes from the people the right to govern themselves, through their chosen representatives.

When Emerson, the great American writer!, came to England he paid a visit to Wordsworth, says an English magazine. Wordsworth had just returned from a journey and was in his Young Women Read what Cardui did for Miss Myria Engler, of Faribault, Minn. She says: "Let me tell you how much good Cardui has done me. As a young girl, I always had to suffer so much with all kind' of pain. Sometimes, I was so weak that. I could hardly stand on my feet I got a bottle of Cardui, at the drug --store, and as soon as I had taken a few doses, I began to feel better. Today, I feel as well as anyone can." FOR FARMERS Rations For Dairy Cattle. It is impossible to give a rule for feeding dairy cows that will hold good in every instance. Feeding, like other farm operations, must be worked out according to conditions. The cows should have all roughness, good hay, that they will eat at one time. If grain is fed give one pound to every three pounds of milk. Give all of the feed of the proper kind that the animals will consume without laying on flesh. As to the grain ratiota, there Is a controversy on this point, many holding that grain is not needed in the ration of a dairy cow, others -a- ' u' .ber Tnft " ' -- LARDUI WomalftTonic Are you a woman ?

The fruit was banded to us, politely peeled by the Arab dealer, and thus as we made acquaintance with its delightful coolness no suspicion of its evil qualities entered our minds. A few days later, adding the excitement of a little trespassing to the more legitimate pleasures of a country ramble, we came upon a well laden group of prickly pear bushes and could not resist the temptation to help, ourselves to some of the fruit. The result was woeful. Concentrated essence of stinging nettle seemed all at once to be assailing hands, lips and tongue, and our skin wherever it had come in contact with the ill natured fruit was covered with i tl'i ' -- TheStings, That THE LOUISVjILLE ! garden writing a poem on what he had see'n.

THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS and a Wild I They Superssded the Roman Stuba In the Eighteenth Century. A heating apparatus called a "stuba" (stove) was widely used among the AND higher class of Romans before the beginning of the Christian era. This class of heaters was fixed and immovable, besides being in several other respects wholly different from the modern stove. . In Germany and Scandinavia they wore used in bathrooms and hothouses during the middle ages. They were usually constructed of brick, BOTH ONE YEAR stone or tile and were of immense size.

The subiect of a nrofitable and eco- nomical feed for work horses Is one that Interests nearly every farmer, says the American Agriculturist. The prevailing opinion is that there is no feed so valuable for the horse as oats There are many people who will not use any substitute for this grain. So many questions have been asked regarding the accuracy of this feeling that D. E. Carmichael began an extensive series of experiments to test the relative value of oats and corn as food for work horses. Fie started his work with three teams of grade geldings. These horses did general farm work. The horses in each team were a'tout the same age. One was fed ou oats and the others on .... n .ir n itrr-- r lilt !. twin.

The variations in weight of the corn fed horses were practically the same as those of the horses r?- ceiving oats. There seemed to be very little difference in the strength and general temperament in the horses of each team. Under the market conditions that prevailed during the experiment the saving from the use of corn was very marked 10 cents per day for each horse. Market conditions should always be kept in mind, since there may be times when it would be cheaper to nse oats than corn.

San Salvador Is perhaps the most interesting historical point on the American side of the world, as it is the island upon which Columbus first landed. Yet it has lost its name. In view of the history not only of the Bahamas rroup. but of the American continents as well, it is far from surprising that the identity of the famous island should have been long lost or that the reldentification should have been de- -i layed until the middle of the last cen- tnry. when Captain T3echer of the Br . t ish navy by application of the descrip tion contained in Columbus' journal to the course from Gomera to the Bahamas determined clearly that Watling's island alone met all requirements of the case.
