This death was not a surprise, as friends had been keeping vigil at his bedside for more than two months. The deceased was born and reared in Cumberland county, locating in this place a few years after he was discharged from the army at the close of the war, being admitted to the bar in Burkesville a short time before coming here. Soon after taking up his residence here he was elected County Attorney, serving four years. At the expiration of his term of office he formed a partnership with his brother, Maj. T. C. Winfrey, who was a noted lawyer and the two practiced together until the death of the older brother which occurred many years ago. Later in life the deceased and Judge II. C. Baker formed a partnership, the firm desolv-wi- g after Mr. Baker was elected Circuit Judge of this district. The deceased also held other positions of honor and trust, being one time the Representative of Adair in the Kentucky Legislature.

His son, Mr M. C. Winfrey, and his step son, Mr. T. C. Davidson, were almost constantly with him, doing every thing in their power to give him comfort. His faithful companion met with an accident several months ago and has been confined to her room since that occurrence. Her condition and t lie serious illness of her husband brought much sorrow to her, and at this time she is in a very feeble condition Mr. Winfrey was a man who had many friends in this place and throughout the county and he will be greatly missed by his devoted wife, his son and step ;on and the other members of his family, and the many attorneys with whom he had so long practiced The funeral services were held last Friday afternoon at the Methodist Church, conducted by his pastor, Rev.

To the Adair County Fiscal Court: Gentlement I have been J0UNTY2NEWS in the habit of making an annual report to your honorable body, of my work as Health officer of the county, and now that the court has been changed, I still feel it ray duty to report to you as the successors of the late lamented. You know that I am one of the county officers, clothed with same power as the others, all paid by a salary fixed by the Fiscal Court, and entitled to the protection of the law.

For the last Special All Notice that my business is more important than the others. That while they deal with the liberty and property of the citizens, I j mit, deal with the lives and the health of all the people of the county. While they are annually housed in rooms furnished by the county, no such good things are furnished to me. When epidemic diseases spring up in the community, all the other officers are permitted to stay in their rooms or take to the woods, wnile the health officer is forced to go out and meet them in all kinds of weather, and to the uttermost parts of the county. While all the other salaried officers of the county have some other business to follow to assist in making a living, except the Superintend ent of Schools. I have none. While all the other officers of the county can stay in their offices, and have no calls to go to the country, are not required to keep a horse or buggy. I have to keep these things in the face of the increase in the price of everything that a horse has to eat. And while your esteemed predecessors right in the midst of the drouth reduced my salary, I heard not a word about reducing the salary ot any body else. In my suit in the circuit court nearly all the members of the Fiscal Court swore that there was no need for a health officer. One of them gave as a reason that the health of the county was so so good that we did noi need the services of a health officer. One o f them swore that he thought it very important to have a health officer, but he thought that the one dollar and ten cents per day was enough to pay him for his services, while he voted himself three dollars a day for what time he attended 'the sittings of the Fiscal Court. "There has been a great deal of prejudice throughout the whoie country against the Boards of Health. Not only in our county, but in all the adjoining. I am paid more than any other health officer in this part of Kentucky, but I have got it by everlastingly iU3sing at the Fiscal court. While I have received more pay than any other one, I am the only one that devotes his whole time to the business. Prejudice and ignorance go hand in hand. The -- change the tariff, and put the Now of duty back on wool. course these men, all of them, know better than this, but they wanted to ride into office on the prejudice that many people have against all health boards. Now let me, for a short while, turn my attention and the attention of the Fiscal Court to some of the things that have been done. I have been for more than ten years fighting consumption, the great white plague. I have fought it more persistently than any other disease, because it has destroyed more of our people. It has destroyed in the United States alone more than war, pestilence, and famine. The people, even the doctors, many of them, thought until recently that the disease was hereditary, descended from parents to children, and that nothing could be done to prevent it. I began .my fight against it in the year 1900, but before this I became thoroughly convinced that the doctrine of heredity was false. In the year 1900 there were in this county 60 deaths from this scourge. I fought in the dark. No light to illumine my pathway. I had no means of knowing whether I was get-- . ging the better in the fight, or the worse. But I still kept up the battle. About 1910 the vital statistics law was enacted, and the people made a great howl about that. But it brought light to me. Under that law the doctors were made to report their cases to the registrars in every voting precinct. I had then for the first time been able to see how many consumptives had died. the deaths is from the newspaper correspondents in the neighborhood, and frequently do not hear of it at all. In the Grady ville precinct the resistrar's report shows six deaths from consumption, only two of which had been notified to me. These things ought not so to be. I hold myself in readiness to go any where in the county, at any time, provided only I can get the information. But notwithstanding these drawbacks, the death rate from this dreadful disease is rapidly declining. ten years I have been visiting the public schools of the county, ialki::g to them of sanitation and right living, but I am sorry to report the great falling off in the number in attendence during the past year. In the reports made by me during the last several years until last year I called loudly for a compulsory school law. In 1912 we had a compulsory law, under which there were in attendance 1000 more than had been attending in any one year before. The schools were lively, Persons Who Are Behind One Year on our Subscrip tion Books Will have to Come off, Under the Law, if not Paid at once The Government Now let me take a the children happy, showing retrospect of what I have been they did not have to be made to saying. If what I have said is attend. The teachers enjoyed And when the registrars made their first reports in 1911 I was pleased to see that the deaths from consumption had been reduced in that year to 42, a falling off in the annual rate of 8. For this I thanked God and took courage. I began then fighting more persistently than ever. In 1912 the report showed that there had been a further decline of five deaths,- being reduced 1 - to 37. And in 1913 to 25, a good deal more than one-hasince the year 1909. This all in the face of the fact that the populalf tion of the county had been rapidly increasing. All this time I have been fighting all other preventable diseases with like results. Typhoid fever, pneumonia, diptheria. and, in fact, all these germ diseases. The death rate all over the county has been falling off, from 230 in 1911, to 210, in 1912, to 186 in 1913, while the birth rate has increased from 446 in 1911, to 489 in ipeople will not undertake to in-- 1912.

Any goodsjnot satisfactory can be re turned by Parcel Post, if in seven days aftersentJout Woodson Lewis was only fourteen years old when 1 made the voyage from London to Rio on board the Duchess, having a crew of fourteen, all told. At Rio we loaded green coffee for Australia. We got away with a fair wind and everybody in perfect health, and our run to the east, until we had sighted Inaccessible island and left it a hundred miles astern, was something to boast of. Then came a dead flat calm, which lasted for eleven days. On the fifth day of the calm two men were sud denly stricken with a strange ailment. They were reported sick at S o'clock in the morning; by 2 p. m. both were dead: at G o'clock a third man was taken down and lived only two hours. Green coffee will sometimes breed fever on a long, hot voyage, but the symptoms of these men were so strange that some other explanation had to be looked for. No one was attacked on the sixth day. but on the seventh the captain, second mate and a common sailor all came down at once. The first complaint was dryness of the tongue. That was followed in half an hour by loss of sight and other senses and before noon all were dead. On the night of the seventh day a sailor who had lain down on the deck in perfect health and soundly slumbered for three hours awoke with a parched tongue. He did not wait to die as others had done, but groped his way to the ship's side and dropped from the rail into the sea. He was the sixth who had died, and the living were panic stricken. We had now lost nearly half our crew, and the ship lay heaving on the glassy sea without sign that the calm was ever to be broken. On the morning of the eighth day there was a better feeling, however. At noon every man ate a hearty dinner. An hour later four men were taken down at almost the same moment, and the symptoms were more violent than in any of the preceding cases. There was no burial of the bodies: they were simply thrown overboard as soon as life had departed. When this had been accomplished, the mate called the living around him and said there was no longer any hope that any ro,an would be spared. The captain's gig could be got at handily, and in case we wanted to take it and pull away from the ship he would help to get her in the water. The two sailors were eager to get off. but my mind wat. quickly made up to remain with Mr. Merwin. When the mate and 1 were left alone he wrote up his log book and also prepared two statements, which he sealed up and cast overboard. That night when 1 went to sleep the bark was heaving about on the ground swell in the same monotonous way, and Mr. Merwin sat at the table in the cabin I slept the night reading a book. through without a break, and it was sunrise when I turned out. I looked into the mate's stateroom, but saw that he had not been to bed. I ran on deck, but he was uowhere to be seen. I called him and began a search, and it was a full hour before 1 gave up and realized that he was not in the ship. What had happened during the night 1 could only surmise. lie had uot wakened me nor left a message. When I fully realized that I was alone aboard of the ship 1 was so terrified that I hid away in the cabin for several hours. Things were not at all clear to me until the morning of the eleventh day of the calm. ThenxI awoke to Qnd myself feeling as well as ever in my life and ran on deck to find signs of change in the weather. 1 knew how to make a signal of distress of the English dag. and. although there was no wind. I ran the bunting aloft It was 3 o'clock in the afternoon before the first catspaws began playing over the glassy surface of the sea. but In the course of half an hour a steadj breeze set in from the north, and the bark went drifting away before it. During the next five days and nights the breeze blew from every point of the compass except the east, but did not rise to a gale nor create a heavy sea. I had little to do except to cook my meals and go aloft to look for sails, but I made as much work for myself as I could and did not permit my mind to dwell on the present or future. On the seventh or eighth day of my loneliness at 1 o'clock in the afternoon and while the bark was drifting to the east under a light breeze I went aloft and made out a sail to the north, a second to the south and a third to the west. The first two were too far away to The third was hope for assistance. coming up and must pass me close.

Fed With Discretion, It Is a Profitabls Pork Producer. great many farmers are beginning to use tankage. I find it beneficial and A a large degree profitable where hogs EL W. Swope in tup There isn't American Agriculturist. anything about good tankage or meat meal that is in any way injurious to hogs, whether young or old. Good takage contains over 50 per cent protein, and for that reason it answers an Important question in animal economy. It is a good feed to use with corn and highly palatable. It need not be fed In large quantities, and. especially when beginning to feed tankage, one part tankage to about ten parts of corn Is a very satisfactory ration. Tankage Is animal matter from which the grease and oil have been extracted. This consists of meat scraps and bone from meat markets and packing houses picked up fresh in a large tank and thoroughly cooked at a high temperature. The grease Is removed from the surface and tankage is then dried thoroughly, after which it is ground, screened and placed in bags for shipment. The high temperature employed in cooking destroys all disease germs that might be present. Tankage, therefore, all summed up Is a pure, safe feed for hogs. It contains 8 to 10 per cent moisture, and in a good, dry plare it can be kept for an Indefinite period of time. I have fed tankage to hogs of all ages for several years now and with excellent results in every ease. With the high cost of feed a little tankage fed with the regular ration to the hogs each day will be found a good feed investment. The cost of feeding tankage seems to increase a trifle every year, but I am sure it will pay all who can use it to do so as long as the price is as reasonable as it is today, considering its protein contents compared with other feeds. Tankage may be fed dry, either alone or with grain rations. I have found It very satisfactory in a thin slop.
