Durham, Highly Respect- ed Citizen, Stricken With Minutes. Ap-oplex- y, Dying in a Few SAD MESSAGE SHOCKS ALL COLUMBIA. The residents throughout this place were greatly shocked last Friday afternoon, about 4:20 o'clock, when the news spread over the city that Mr. E. n poultry II. Durham, the dealer, manager for Grinstead & Co., had met with a stroke of apoplexy, and was dying in the wholesale house of V. M. Gowdy & Co. Mr. Durham was seated in the store conversing with several gentlemen, when stricken. He was placed on a cot, physicians called, but death came in about thirty minutes. His brother at Campbellsville was notified and the body conveyed to the Hancock Hotel. About 7 o'clock the brother and an embalmer arrived, and after the body was prepared another brother and his mother reached here from Taylor county and the remains removed to the Durham home, this place. The deceased was born and reared atSaloma, Taylor county, and was thirty-seve- n years o I d when the summons came. A number o f years ago he made a profession of his faith in Christ, united with the Baptist Church and was consistent to the end. Soon after coming to this place to live, seven years ago, his church membership was removed from Taylor county to the Columbia Baptist Church, and for some time before his demise he held the office of Deacon, and he was also assistant Superintendent of the Sunday School. He was a man who had the confidence of the people of this community, and his death brought sorrow to many friends. Saturday morning religious services were held at the residence conducted by his pastor, Rev. O. P. Bush, and soon thereafter the remains were well-know- went about doing good never allowing his "right hand to know what his left hand doeth. " His sole purpose seemed to be to "pluck a thorn and plant a rose where he thought a rose would grow." Such men are the light of the world, and when they are called hence a shadow of sorrow and heartache is left, but we know that his memory will ever be fresh and green in the hearts and minds of the boys and girls, men and women of the Baptist Sunday School of Columbia. As we study the life and example of Mr. Durham we are reminded of the fact, that, after all, the most beautiful thing in God's universe is a rfoble Christian character, who, unassuming and quiet, goes about among his fellows, wrapping himself in tender benedictions around the destinies of men, and finally finding his home in the everlasting bosom of Almighty God.

The contest was quickly over, the Wayne county boys being entirely too swift for our boys While the store was 24 to 9 in favor of the visiting team, it was exciting and very much enjoyed by the spectators.

Perfect order prevailed throughout. Otho Wesley, Aimer Reece, Elmer Wolford, Herbert Popplewell, Garland Dunbar, L. C. Sullivan were the Jamestown players. Friday night the Monticello boys met the Lindsey-Wilso- n team in the gymnasium, and the first half of the game was close and exciting, but the Wayne boys took a decided lead in the latter half and the contest closed with thirty-si- x scores marked for the visiting team and twelve for the Lindsey gym-nosium The groom was reared in Columbia, being a son of Mr. and Mrs. T.

Peace to his memory. later: Siuce writing the above we want to state that in testimony of the high standing of Mr. Durham, the There were 19 deaths reported from hookworm disease in Kentucky in 1912 while none were reported in 1911. This is due most likely to the fact that this disease has been recognized only a short while by our physicians and it is quite likely that the number of deaths from this disease is very much larger than is giyen here and will be reported as such, as the knowledge of this disease is disseminated among the physicians of the State.

' ' Whereas, God in His infinite wisdom has so suddenly called Mr. Richard Durham from active duties in the world to his eternal home in heaven, therefore, be it resolved that we, the Baptist Sunday School of Columbia, express our appreciation of his inestimable services both to God and man, and that we extend a hand of sympathy and brotheily love to the bereaved family and friends. It will be needless to say that Mr. Durham will be missed not only from Sunday School and' church chcles, but from civil circles as well. His devotion to duty, his upright manhood and Christian courage, and his wise couu-sel ad instruction have left their im- pr for good upon our Sunday School. Wewill miss his genial smile and generous hand. He was Superintendent of the Baptist Sunday School during the year 1912, and assistant superintendent during year 1913. He was ever at his post, attempting humbly and modestly to accomplish whatever duties come his way, always giving God the glory and never failing to keep self behind.

Reed, Messrs. J. W. Flowers and Fred Hill. The pike was heavy, but the return trip was progressing very well until after they passed Tampico when suddenly the machine came to a stanstill. Behind Mr. Richardson was the large passenger car, having aboard eleven persons. A stop was made and nearly all the passengers alighted and did what they could to move the Richardson car, bat it would not move. It was then decided to rope it to the big car. This done, a start was made, the rope to break every twenty yards until a few hundred yards were made. Finally the rope was thribbled and after the big car had hauled the Richardson car and passengers a mile, it was ready to travel alone. ?t passed the big car and came on to Columbia without further trouble. The crowd in the large car were hav ing a fine time until the old Sharp place was reached. Here the machine became unruly and ditched. The passengers got out and fell out, and after working a half hour to get it back on the pike, and a decision being reached that it could not be moved, Mr. J. W.

"I am going to St. Petersburg on a mission," said a nihilist in New York to a fellow worker. "Do you know any one there who will shield me if cornered?" The question was answered by a story. Not long ago I was there myself. One day I was directed to carry a bundle of printed revolutionary documents from our rooms to the house of a member in a different part of the city. I studiously avoided any haste, sauntering along as though I had no wish to be at the end of my route. At a street crossing, glancing aside to avoid being run down by some vehicle, I saw a man standing on the opposite corner with his eyes fixed intently upon me. He had his hands in his pockets and was apparently loitering, but the moment he saw that I noticed him he started off briskly in the opposite direction from what I was going. Nevertheless he did not lose sight of gone far when, in order me. I had-noto be able to look back without my design being suspected. I stopped before a shop window, glancing rearward out of the corner of my eye. I was just in time to see the man I was looking for disappear in an alley. I was now thoroughly frightened. Without doubt he was shadowing me. For some time I watched him with one eye and the policeman I happened to see by the way with the other. We nihilists, of course, all knew the location of the police stations and the residences of the officers. Suddenly noticing that I was passing the house of the chief of the district, it occurred to me to play a desperate game. I resolved to bluff my watcher into the belief that he was after the wrong man by boldly entering the house. What under heaven I was to do there I did not know. Mounting a few steps, I tried the door. It was locked, but at the moment was opened by a young lady in hat and wraps, evidently about to come out. I stepped inide without an invitation and closed the door. "May T speak with you a moment?" 1 asked, removing my hat. The parlor door was open, and as I looked wistfully into the room she motioned me to enter, then followed. I turned and faced her. studying by her expression what kind of a person I had to deal with. Then I spoke in a low voice, seriously, pleadingly. "You have the life of a fellow being in your keeping." t Atlanta, Ga. Stories of strange and remarkable results that have been circulated in this city by scores of persons who have used the New Iioot Juice treatment for rheumatism.stom-ac- h trouble, kidney disorders and similar complaints, reached even the humblest hovels of the poor and destitute and throngs of cripples and infirm poured into the drug store where the demonstration was held to beg or buy the strange new medicine that is said to exert its powerful influence over certain diseases in a manner that seems almost miraculous. Pale faced, weak and sickly widowed mothers, with infants clutching at their skirts have told stories of suffering, sickness, privations fnd dispair that have caused strong men to turn away and hide their tears. Once healthy and able men now crippled by the ravages of merciless rheumatism, with faces lined and drawn by pain and suffering, have hobbled in on cane and crutch, telling of families dependent upon them, of neglected little ones end sickly wives, begging just one bottle of the great new liquid that may possess the power to change their condition, strengthen their weak and stiffenek muscles and enable them to care for the loved ones at home.

Not only have the poor people become interested in the strange liquid but persons in all walks of life; merchants, business men, everyone is talking about Root Juice and its wonderful cures So quickly and marvelously have some severe cases been reported cured that stories have been circulated to the effect that the medicine possesses miraculous power, but this of course is ridiculous and untrue. one-dollar most like a miracle.

Then the score on that side is added up, and the number of checkers that fell outside the baskets is deduced from the total. The other side then lines up and plays as the first did. The order of the baskets must be changed occasionally so that no one knows which is which. The game continues until a certain number 300 or 500. as previously agreed upon has been reached.

"Coat," the huntsman cries, or he may tell a story of adventure, bringing in these names. Each person who represents tlu'si? articles must rise when UN or her name is called and place himself behind the player summoned just before him and hold fast to him. At length the huntsman has a long lino behind him and begins to run around the group of chairs, all holding to the player in front and running until the huntsman suddenly cries. "Bang," and all scramble for chairs and sit down as quickly as possible. Of course one is left standing, and he becomes huntsman. Hall Tennis. All that is required for this game is a cord and a toy balloon. Fasten the ends of the cord to opposite walls of a hall or room, having it about the height of the shoulder and drawn tight and even across. Now use the toy balloon as the tennis ball and the right hand as the rocket. The balloon may be struck twice so as to get it iu good position before the serve over the line. The game then consists in returning the balloon as long as possible. A failure to return makes a gain of one point tor the opponent, and four points make a game. The whole thing seems very simple, but try it and see. Much depends on the way the balloon is struck. A stroke on the underside will send the balloon up above your opponent's head, and a stroke sending the balloon so that the underside will just touch the string sends it curling downward out of the reach of the opponent and back to its starting place. If the balloon .does not pass over the string the point is lost to the one giving the stroke. are arranged in the middle of the room, and there must be one chair less than the number of players.

(T!W"ll M. De Gournay, a citizen of Paris, was sitting in his club reading a news- j paper when a young man approached him and said: "Monsieur, pardon me for interrupting your reading, but I have a request to make of you. I am a citizen of the United States Utah is where I hall from and I have made a fortune in cattle, mines, merchandising in short by every means except selling liquor over the bar. I came here to see Europe. At first everything seemed old fashioned, but in time I got used to your ways, and now I like them first rate, even to the way you commit matrimony." De Gournay looked up at the speaker as he would at a curious kind of animal in a menagerie. The American proceeded: "When we on the other side of the big salt lake make up our minds to do a thing in any other way than our own we never try to mix the two methods. I have a proposition to make, and I'm going to make it on the French plan. The other night at the American embassy I met one of your daughters. I have concluded to make you a proposition for her hand." Whatever were De Gournay's feelings at this blunt announcement he did not give way to them. He stared at the speaker in a sort of wonder for awhile, then said with French suavity: "And you consider, monsieur, that you have adopted our method of opening a matrimonial negotiation?" "I will admit that there is an American flavor to it I mean a Rocky mountain aroma." "Decidedly." said the Frenchman in well modulated tones, while he kept his eyes fixed on his interviewer, evidently studying him. Jack Henderson's face bespoke that free, uncultured frankness indigenous to a new country. There was not a diplomatic feature, not a trace of meanness, in it. De Gournay had five daughters and not enough property to give even one of them a dowry. This brusque proposal was no more to his taste than would have been the touch of the prickly cactus among which the westerner had lived. Nevertheless he did not propose to turn it down until he had discovered what there was In it. He accepted Mr. Henderson's card and gave him permission to submit a few references Americans in Paris, who knew all about him. But the Frenchman's exterior did not correspond with his interior. Every American abroad is supposed to be worth millions, and De Gournay, as has been said, had five maidens to marry off. While looking with one eye at his newspaper he Avas watching the American's retreating figure with the other, and later, when he saw Jack leave the club, he arose from his seat, threw off his assumed indifference and started out on a still hunt to find out all he could learn about the suitor Two things he learned were eminently satisfactory Henderson had made a large fortune, and his character was excellent. Nothing detrimental turned up. After a lot of red tape, as Henderson called it, he was permitted to call at De Gournay's home and have a look at the young lady he had applied for, Mile. Estelle, in presence of her father and mother and three of her sisters. Jack declared when questioned about the visit that there was not as much chance for spooning as if the girl had been set up on the divide and he given a job of driving a mule team in the canyon. After a long delay, followed by a business meeting between M. De Gournay. Jack nenderson and two notaries, at which Jack settled SoOO.OOO on his bride to be. the couple were married at 10 o'clock in the morning by a maire. at 11 in a church and at 12 sat down to a wedding breakfast Jack was very happy beside his bride, whom he had never met sociably but once, when a lackey entered the room and handed her father a note. De Gournay paled, and the features of his face otherwise indicated that he had received a blow. Arising from the table, he left the room, and soon after the mother took the bride away also. Jack saw that something had gone wrong, but kept his seat till the guests began to take their departure, when he, too. arose-anwent out to Jearn what had become of his bride. A servant informed him that she had left the house with her mother. Jack, astonished, asked for his father-in-laand was informed that he would find him in the library. Thither went the groom, to see De Gournay pacing back and forth In a fury. "What's up?" inquired Jack. "How did you dare impose upon me as you have done?" cried the angry Frenchman. "But I am rightly served, to trust anything that comes from barbarous America. Go away from this house and never come here again. As for my daughter. he will spend the rest of her life in a convent.

Of the several types of hotbeds in general use the sunken or pit type Is, all things considered, the best for the raising of early plants from seed. This style of bed is constructed by excavating a pit six feet wide and two and one-hafeet deep and as long as necessary to accommodate the number oC 3 by G foot sash it is desired to use-Th-e sides of the pit are boarded up with rough lumber nailed to posts which may be placed three feet or more apart. If some degree of permanency is desired good material will need to be used. Chestnut lumber is very serviceable and reasonably cheap; spruce comes next in point of durability and cheapness. The sides of the pit should be raised above the surface of the ground twenty inches at the back and twelve inches in front This will provide ample pitch to the sasb for shedding rain and also be of sufficient angle for good construction of the sun's rays and heat Good sasb should be used. The location of the hotbed should be chosen where the natural drainage is: good and, if possible, where there is a. good windbreak at the north side. If lf a suitable sheltered spot is not available then a tight board fence six feet high and extending several feet beyond each end of the hotbed should be I .M v v- ',. V I ft. l.aXr5-tiS- -- y v v HOTBEDS Ef CONSTKUCTIOS. ( erected to break off the cold north winds. Without such a windbreak it will be almost impossible to raise early plants successfully in the hotbed. The windbreak should he about live feet away from the north side of the frame. The heating material for the hotbed should be horse manure fresh from the stable, to which should be added, whea f accessible, its bulk of forest leaves. If these are not available stniw or hay may be used. The manure anil added material is to be thoroughly mixed and formed into a conical heap to undergo fermentation. In the formation of this heap it should be trodden down in successive layers of a foot in deptli until the heap is four feet or more in height. The base of the heap should be of sufficient diameter to insure good fermentation in the severest winter weather. All the material used for beating should be well dampened before putting it in the pile or the fermentation will not be evenly distributed. Care must be taken that no frozen material is put in the heap or fermentation will be slow and may greatly interfere with the operator's plans of an early sowing of seed.

They may either be dug out deeper or have another set of boards on top to give the required height The plants are set in the frame close together and. then covered with boards lapped to shed rain. In very cold localities such-- , frames are covered with sash, over which are mats covered with must be given on warns days by blocking up the sash. Celery is also stored satisfactorily in trenches,, with the boards used in blanching nailed in V shape and placed over the top-- If warm weather follows the troughs are blocked up to admit air. Whea frost comes a light furrow is thrown: up along the boards and later manure Is thrown over them, but this trench: plan is usually adopted when the crop Is to be sold early In the winter. Tops of celery should always be dry when it is stored, and some soil is lifted witfcs the plants. It must be stored before hard freezing. boards-Ventilation "GOING do TO LAW."
