NUMBER 6 Railroad Meet Us Basket Bali. Cant. B. F. Powell Badiv Hurt. Capt. B. F. Powell, who was born aud reared in Adair county, and who is remembered by many of our older citizens, met with a very serious accident at his home, in Lincoln county, last week. The Stanford Interior-Journgives the following account of it: "Capt. B. F. Powell, one of the best and most prominent citizens of Lincoln county, was quite seriously injured last week when a mare he was holding by a halter became unruly and jumping against him, threw him violently against the ground, breaking a hip for him close to the body. Oil account of his age Capt. Powell is close to 75 years old the injury is much more dangerous than if he were a younger man. Physicians have set the fractured member, but the injury is very painful and aggravating and it is hard for Capt. Powell to obtain much needed rest. The accident happened at Capt. Powell's home farm, about five miles west of Stanford, in the McCormack's church neighborhood. Members of his family quickly went to his assistance and he is being given every attention, but the outcome of such a serious accident is problematical." al How to Get a Railroad.

Who can estimate the worth of a railroad in the development of Columbia and Adaii county? Who can expect such an industrial blessing unless we all unite on some practical plan and go after it in earnest? For this purposse we invite and urge a meeting of the people in the courthouse Wednesday evening at 7 o'clock, to discuss this proposition and to agree on some course of action to place Columbia and Adair county in touch with business development. If you want a railroad built into Columbia then meet us and help develop some effective plan to secure it next Wednesday night. W. E. Myers, Sandusky Bros., A. H. Ballard, W. W- - Jones.

Perhaps you citizens all feel that a railroad would be a good thing for the town and county, and especially along the route, but what are they going to do about it?

Columbia is a good inland town, aud needs a railroad, but so long as Columbia and Adair county give their freight and traffic to the Louisville & Nashville railroad as it now does, the town and county will be without a railroad. Why? Because this corporation cannot see the policy of building more road bed and equipping same when it is already the beneficiary af the freight and traffic from this section. The mistake that Columbia and Adair county made dates back to the building of the pike to Campbellsville. Whenever this section awakes to the fact that it must direct its freight and traffic in some other direction, and give the L. &N., to understand that unless she comes after the business she can not get it, then, and not until then, will she build a road to Columbia. To sum it all up, there are only two ways for this section to have a railroad. The first is, for the people to go to Cumberland river with their freight and traffic, build a pike to the river, and get in touch with the Cincinnati Southern. Then the L. & N., would offset this by building a road. Second, would be for the citizens to form a corporation and build and equip their own road, independent of theL. &N., which would eventually be taken over by the L. & N., but at a loss to the builders. Any way we would be glad to see the road built. Eespt., T. S. Scott, Coburg, Ky. "Rev. Stevenson has been here two years and has made many warm friends during that time, who will greatly regret his leaving us.

I T i A University of Wisconsin professor speaking to a Council of ALBERT L. FORD "Mr. Wilson," said Billy Morehouse, standing meekly before a stern looking man with mutton chop whiskers and beetling brows, "I have come with your daughter Jennie's consent to ask you for her as my wife." The gentleman looked at the young man before him, evidently framing a sentence to crush him. When it came it was like a bolt from heaven. "You, a steeplejack, marry my daughter! Do you think me a fool? What kind of a business is yours anyway? You risk your life for 50, perhaps, and when you've done it once you do it again. You go up a spire in the presence of a gaping crowd. Do you suppose they would be watching you if it were not for the probability of seeing you tumble down and get mashed into a jelly? And what kind of a life would your wife lead? She would be in constant expectation of seeing your battered remains brought home in a wagon. "Marry my daughter! No, sir." Billy hung his head and said nothing for a few moments. Then he looked up and asked: "If I abandon the ancient and honorable steeplejack business for some other would you give your consent?" "The occupation is ancient and not dishonorable," was the reply. "If you .want my daughter and she wants you or she wouldn't have sent you to me you'll have to look up in the matter of fly an occupation. My Higher than being a steeplejack. It's too late for you to study a profession, but you may yet make a business man of yourself. There are many occupations far more commendable than that of climbing steeples." "It doesn't do for a man to waste n.ls time learning to do things and then abandon them. Suppose I should become proficient in something as I am in climbing steeples and you should not be satisfied with it, and then 1 learned something else, and then" "You engage in something above steeplejacking and you may have Jennie, provided it pays you enough to support her." "All right, Mr. Wilson. I'll try to fly higher than steeplejacking." The last words were not heard by he elder man. He had no confidence in Billy's ability to make a living at anything except the line he had fallen Into and felt perfectly safe in agreeing to give his daughter to him provided he could support her by a more acceptable occupation. Six months passed, and Mr. Wilson heard nothing more of his would be climbing He kept an eye on his daughter and was reassured at not seeing any evidence of dissatisfaction on her part He was congratulating himself that she had forgotten the steeplejack man when one day she sjm.-jnpavm- Teachers in Chicago urged the organization of a society for the prevention of cruelty ti the English language.

The gentleman was persuaded, and the two sallied forth. Jennie suggested 'fiiat they take a tnlley ride into the country. This they did and finally found themselves in open ground. They strolled about for some time when suddenly Mr. Wilson, shading his eyes from the sun with his hands, faid: "What a big bird that Is over there!'' "I think it's coming this way." The bird did come that way, growing larger and larger as it ueared them. "Why, ifs an aeroplane!" remarked Mr. Wilson. "So it is!" chimed Jennie. They watched it sailing along high up In the air. its two great wings extended, looking for all the world like a soaring eagle. It pnssed a thousand feet over their heads, turned and swooped downward like a seagull after a fish, passing not more than fifty feet above them. "Hello. Jennie!" cried the aeronaut "Hello. Billy!" replied Jennie. "What does this mean?" exclaimed the father, bridling. Billy turned again and, passing within ten yards of them, replied: "Why, you told me, Mr. Wilson, that If I wanted Jennie I must fly higher than steeplejacking, and I'm doing it There's no steeple higher than several hundred feet, and I've been up several thousand." '"Nonsense!" exclaimed the father. "Jennie," reproachfully, "how could you bring your father out here on purpose to make a fool of him?" "I didn't papa. I brought you out here to show you that Billy has got the better of you. I want Billy, and Billy wants me. Now, do be a good, sensible papa and take Billy Into your business and let us be happy." "H'm! This was your doing. I know your tricks and your manners." Then to Billy, "Take that ungodly great bird back to where you got it and. tomorrow morning come to my office." Mr. Wilson was partly right After his interview with Billy the two conspirators put their heads together and devised a scheme which Jennie, knowing her father's disposition, believed would be the best way to attack him. &ny attempt to force him would have resulted In failure. It was the utter want of sense in the plan that conquered. Billy Is now running bis father-in-law- 's hcslness. JJ Pi,' VTT employed in cooking destroys all disValuables Being Found. Philadelphia.

One of these coaches left Denver one morning struck the mountains at Golden City, mounted to the highest point and moved on downward and upward alternately toward Georgetown. On the top of the coach a gentleman and his family were enjoying the scenery. The driver sat on hi3 box trying to keep awake, for he had been drinking, while beside him sat a young1 man whose costume denoted that he was a resident of the region. The coach reached the top of an ascent and the road In front wound downward in one of those frequent dips in the mountains. .It had begun the descent and the young man sitting beside the driver, noticing that he had failed to put on the brake, looked aside at him to see what it meant. The fellow was asleep and had not only failed to "brake." but had let go his hold on the reins, which were now down on. the pole. A punch in the ribs awoke the driver, who, seeing the reins dangling from the pole and tho coach rolling rapidly-dow- n the crooked road, jumped from his seat, preferring rather to be injured by a fall on the stony road than to be hurled over a precipice he knew to be at a turn farther down. There were shrieks from the womei: passengers, while tho men were paralyzed. But among the latter there was one exception. The young man left alone on the box let himself down on the pole, gathered up the reins, climbed back on to the box and put on the brake. The horses were by this time so wild and the speed so great that it was very difficult to control the one and lessen the other. Not an eighth of a mile distant was the turn in the road, with a gulf a thousand feet deep on one side. The cries and shrieks had ceased with the effort thus far made to regain control, and every eye was fixed on the danger ahead, every breath held in terror. The man on the box kept a firm hand on the reins and pushed with all his strength with his right foot on the break. There was a lessening of the speed, but would it be reduced sufficiently to go safely round the curve? The hearts of those whose lives were at stake were throbbing in time with the jumping of the horses. "When the turn was reached the velocity wis-stil- l so great that there was little hope. The women recommenced to shriek. "Stop that!" said the driver. "You'll excite the horses." The cries ceased. There was no. sound except what came from the horses hoofs and the creaking of the coach, while every one held with a tight grip to his seat and looked with straining eyes at the gulf before him. The driver guided the horses as near the rock on the inner side as he dared, for should he hit it the coach would be knocked over the precipice. Notwithstanding his effort so great was its swing when it made the turn that a hind wheel slid over a slope a few-fefrom the edge. The driver gave a yell to the horses and threw the long lash of his whip among them with a crack. Every animal gave a jump, the wheel came back on level ground, and the rest of the turn was made in safety. The final effort caused the horses to break forth again, and again they must be brought under control. But now the road was comparatively straight and soon the inclination began to lessen. In a few minutes the bottom of the dip was reached, and the coach was brought to a standstill. Then the driver was infolded in the arms of those on the outside of the coach, both men and women. An hour later the coach drove up to the hotel at Idaho Springs and all alighted. The gentleman who was traveling with his wife and family took, the driver aside for a private interview. "You have saved the lives of a coach load of persons." he said, "including myself, ray wife and family. Had It not been for your coolness and courage we would all have met with a frightful death.

DEC, .. 10, 1913 - On another page in the issue, a call for a me'etjng of the citizens of Columbia and Adair county will be seen. The purpose is fully set forth in said call, and we trust that the courthouse will be crowded with determined men who will neither flicker nor falter until this movement is crowned with suecess. Already Columbia is the best inland town in the State, but with moderate facilities for shipping, her growth in population and business would soon out rival any town in South Central Kentucky. Within two or three years after securing railroad service, her population would double, her business quadruple and values materially increase in every part of the county. We are withm twenty miles of a great railroad system with but little natural obstruction in the way, not even necessity for a deep cut or other expensive work before track laying, and yet, for years, this county has poured its resources into to the trade of another town, slept for a half century within the reach of reasonable effort to develop its own resources-los- ing tremendously every year and doing without many of the conveniences of life. Land . values are held down to the lowest price. Old methods still prevail. With no enterprise or opportunity to create new business or to enlarge present operations thousands of citizens of vim and vigor have gone to other sections and made good. This condition would be changed by securing a railroad, and it is immaterial where we connect or what line of road that receives our business. The important joint is connection. It is not so much competition we need, as facilities to get out and in, to and from the centers of trade and markets. As we see it the L. & N., is in as good position to 'give the service so badly needed, ras any other road. It is within twenty miles of our town and could be built to this place for what it would cost any other lina of road, besides :lt would give just as profitable service, as good passage and as low rates as any other road. Let us all meet next Wednesday evening and get together on some j)lan, and if the bulk of our citizens will unite, some way can be worked out that will bring a road. It is up to this communi-it- y to save itself from industrial iflecay, and the sooner we realize tthis the sooner we should get ibusy and cast it off. -- The State Journal pays a nice compliment to Attorney General Garnett under the head A good day for Kentucky. "The Commonwealth of Kentucky had a "field day" in the Supreme Court of the United States Monday, when it won two cases, in volving questions of importance to the neonle a rate case and a tax suit. Attorney General Garnett, who argued the Greenbriar freight rate case and the United States Fidelity and Guaranty case before the Supreme Court has a right to feel complaisant over his achievement in behalf of the State. While the Court again declined to pass upon the constitutionality of the McChord bill in the former, it by implication seems to have said that it has no jurisdiction and that the matter of making interstate rates belongs exclusively to the State, which is satisfactory as anything could be to the State Railroad Commission and the people of Kentucky. The United States Fidelity and Guaranty Company is a foreign corporation, which makes reports on the commercial rating of business houses the country over. Itresisteda tax in this State but the Supreme Court held that it would have to submit and thus laid down the doctrine that such foreign corporations doing business in Kentucky must contribute to the State's revenues. It was a good day's work for Kentucky, which was ably represented in the legal battles against the best talent the resources of a great railroad system and a big Eastern corporation could hire.

Jewelry is marketed under four Different names, vs. Gold, Gold Front, Gold Filled and Gold Plate, with several different qualities of each. So you see you can't judge quality by the price. If you pay $3.00 for a $1.00 Ring, that does not make the ring any better, it only adds $2.00 extra profit to the merchant's pocket. So you have to depend upon the qualification and honesty of the Jeweler when you buy. If a Jeweler sells you a ring or some valuable piece of Jewelry and represented it as solid Gold and in a year, or a few years, it wears to the brass, he either misrepresented it or he did not know what he was selling. There are so many qualities of Gold front and Gold filled that it takes an experienced Jeweler to ascertain the quality, he has to be thoroughly acquainted with the making of it and know the trade marks before he can tell. With my several years experience in the Jewelry business puts me in a position to sell you without a misrepresentation. I know who makes my Jewelry. I know the quality of each and every piece, and if I tell you it is Solid Gold, it will be Solid Gold for ever.

Twenty-fou- r chaplains, he said, are all that the government now provides to look after the religious welfare of the navy's 07,000 men, the number of chaplains not having been increased since 1842, when the personnel of the navy numbered only 12,000 men.

Some testify they were cured for as little as fifty cents, years ago, and that the trouble never came back on them, while others admit they took several bottles before a steady euro was brought about. The remedy referred to is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It has been on .he market for over a quarter of a century and has been popularized on its merits, by one person telling another. The fact that its strongest supporters ire women and elderly people the ones most persistently constipated makes it certain that the claims regarding as a permanent cure for constipation it have not been exaggerated.

A living Rip Van Winkle, awakening from nine years of oblivion to find old friends dead and his children grown to manhood, walks, bewildered, in the streets of his home town, in that very Sleepy Hollow country of which Irving, author of Rip, wrote many tales. He is Hyinan Levy, long a leading merchant in Tarrytown before the "sleep" of years began. It was a mental cloud that shrouded him and made him almost as one dead to his friends. Now, with tottering step, but clear seeing eyes, ho has come slowly back from the mysterious wilderness of lost memory. He sees new faces that are somehow old the faces of the children who are men and women now. He seeks the haunts of former friends to find them held by strangers. Many that he knew are now but names upon the grave stones in Sleepy Hollow cemetery. But Levy's is not a mournful awakening. There are scores of his old cronies alive and rejoicing in his recovery. He remembers them all. He remembers everything that happened up to jiine yeare ajjo. These nine years are"an uttef blank. At the height ofjils business career he worried so much" over" a scratch on his leg which was infected that he be came ill. He recovered physically, but made himself a hermit in his home.

Concrete is as cheap as lumber for building purposes and even cheaper if sand, gravel and labor are largely furnished on the place. An ordinary farm hand will become expert in the use of concrete with a few days' experience. Silos, barns and other buildings made of this material are much safer than wood against fire and storm. The largest part of concrete is the gravel or crushed stone. This should be clean that is, free from loam, clay or vegetable matter. The best results are obtained from a mixture of sizes graded from the smallest which is reh inch screen, to tained on a the larger ones that will pass a one inch ring. For heavy and one-hafoundation and abutment work larger slgftd pebbles and stones might be used, concrete work while for pebbles larger than those passing a one inch ring should not be used. In the selection of sand the greatest care should be used, and critical attention should be given to its quality, for d f to sand contributes from of the amount of the materials used in making concrete. Sand may be considered as including all grains and small pebbles that will pass h through a wire screen with Inch meshes, while gravel in general is the pebbles and stones retained upon such a screen. The sand should be clean, coarse and, if possible, free from xoam, ciay ana vegetaoie matter. In mixing materials for concrete use twoand a half times as much sand as Portland cement and twice as much gravel or stone as sand that is, one part cement, two and a half parts of sand and five parts of gravel or crush-je- d stone.

This Is due to the fact that all the,- deposits are formed in seamsor pockets that make It impossibleto secure anything like uniformity.
