Hudson, r 4 rl 1 attttti WEDNESDAY MARCH II, 1914. mtmm NUMBER 19 ADAIR COUNTY, KENTUCKY, What is the Matter With Adair Dr. Frank Cheek Visits Columbia. Dr. J. F Cheek, of Danville, visited Adair county last week. Saturday forenoon he preached to the Presbyterian church at Union, and Sunday forenoon and evening he delivered two interesting sermons in the Presbyterian church, this place, large con gregations hearing him,. One huu- dren and two years ago his great grandfather, Samuel Robinson, was pastor of the Presbyterian church in this tawn. His father was born in Columbia and was the pastor of the congregation here in 1831. The above statements were made Sunday by Dr. Cheek, from the pulpit, there being only a few in the congregation ac- Died at Elizabeth Hospital. Will Practice Law. Music and Dramatic Club. The New Dormitory. County Schools? I do nob wish to appear as a pessi- mist or as an alarmist.'uor do I wish to cast any reflection upon my predecessors inotllce, but I do contend that the schools of our county are far be low the standard of efficiency which they should reasonably be expected to maintain. While in gome respects marked improvements have been made, in others the schools are inferior to years ago: what they were twenty-liv- e and so it is a question as to whether, . on the whole, n.uch improvement has really been made or not. I shall not enter into a comparison of the merits and demerits of the schools now, and the schools then, but I do propose to point out some wrong conditions now existing, and if possibk. suggest remedies for them. And just here I wish to answer a question that has several times been put to me within the last year or so. Why do the best teachers now get but $40 per month, .as they have for the past two years in Adair county, while formerly they received S5o, $60, and some of them as high as $70 per month. True, the per capita Editor News: who lived near Mr. W. A.

But this should not make so much difference. I confess that at first this puzzled me until I sat down and made some figures. The fact that under the new way of paying teachers the merest tyronic teaching," with a certificate and no experiteaching a third-clas- s school must have $35 per month, answers the question in part. This increase of salary for the third-clas- s teacher is subtracted from that of the first-clas- s teacher. There are a number of districts in Adair county where under the old per capita, method of paying teachers the teacher would get about $125 for six mouths work whereas" now she gets 5210. The difference of $85 y in each case is taken from the wages of the better qualified teachers Then take into consideration the fact that of the 78 white districts in our county only 49 are large enough to meet the requirements of the law, except in case of emergency, ana you have the rest of the answer. Strictly speaking, we may say there are not more than 50 legal districts in the county, outside of our Columbia Graded School and the ten colored Under this state of affairs he best teacher with first-clas- s certifictte, State Certificate, or State Diploma, with Normal training and large experience gets ony $5.00 per month more than the poorest teacher with third-clas- s certificate, iio experience and no training This will certainly drive the better teachers out of the profession in novery long time. This places no premium upon merit, There is no incentive to the boy or girl to prepare in earnest for teaching, hen the best talent, the highest tion, the completest preparation, and the ripesr experience can rise only $5 00 per month above the lowest in the profession But what is the rem edy? This is easier to ask than to answer. The first suggestion I would make is this: Reduce the number of istricts. Make them all legal districts, if possible. Make no new districts, unless in so doing one or two old ones can be abolished, and the others affected by the formation of the new district be left at least as large as before, if not larger. The 7S white districts should be reduced to 0frn number. Outside of our Columbia Graded School, the average salary of the teacher this year in Adair county is $37. OS per mouth-countiassist ants and colored teachers. By reducing the number of districts to GO we can raise the average to $46 per month. I do not say that this reducing the num"ber of districts to 00 will be done or even that it can be done, but the matter will be fully investigated just as soon as I can get the time and op- portunity to do to 1 am opposed to the cutting and slicing process, and my policy shall b- -, as far as it is consistent with the best interests of and patrons, to lessen the number of districts and make the small ones remaining larger and larger f Tobias Iluffaker.

To the people of Kentucky: A few cases of small pox exist in most of the counties of Kentucky. This loathsome disease in people who have not been vaccinated. Quarantine sgainst individual cases of small pox is expensive and useless, as it only gives a false sense of security. No one who has been properly vaccinated at least three places on the arm, has ever had small pox in Kentucky. There has never been an arm nor a life lost from vaccina-tio- n in Kentucky. Properly done by a competent physician, it is devoid of danger, is inexpensive, and is the only preventive against small pox. More money has been spent, most of it uselessly, in combatingjsmall pox in the last few years in Kentucky, than has been expended in thirty years in protecting our people from typhoid fever, consumption and the other common diseases of everydaylife, and yet more deaths have occurred from either typhoid or consumption in the past year than small pox, yellow fever and cholera, combined, have caused in a century. The Board is frequently asked why the law requires vaccination at three points an inch apart on the arm. Because experience teaches in Germany that no one having three or more good scars has had small pox. Vaccination does its work of protection through the glands under the arm. Charging these glands from three points instead of one makes them manufacture more of the protective element. As soon as a case of small pox occurs, every individual exposed should be properly vaccinated or revaccinated, and there should be no second case of the disease. It is unnecessary to quarantine the well, provided they have been successfully vaccinated. can orily occur salary or wages of any kind. Intelligent people will be vaccinated without compulsion because it is reasonable, necessary and lawful; and health and other officials are urged to see that those who are not intelligent be compelled to be vaccinated so that the unnecessary drain on the city and county treasuries and on the purses of the people themselves from this entirely unnecessary pestilence be stopped. Small pox, like murder, will only be prevented when the law is enforced.

It is a misdemeanor punish- able by a fine of from $100 to $1,000 for any one having an eruption even resembling small pox, to go on any public street or road or any place where well people are. If the court officials will enforce this law and the one requiring vaccination, they will actually put into practice some real economy instead of the variety it is popular to talk about at election time. To prevent not only small pox, but the commoner and more dangerous diseases that cause most of our sickness and death in Kentucky, we need simply real education, actual lav enforcement, and a health officer in each jurisdiction can devote his entire time to, and earn a living by preventing sickness and death instead of treating people for unnecessary sickness.

When Postmaster General Burleson was a member of the house he rushed into his committee room one day and announced that he had at last obtained the iron fence around the old Pennsylvania station in Washington. A cub reporter who happened to be present wrote a story about the fence and after stating the facts expressed the opinion that it would soon adorn one of the public parks in Burleson's district in Texas. The Texas correspondents wired the story to their papers, and soon Burleson was deluged with telegrams. Encountering the cub reporter, Burleson angrily demanded to know what he bad written about the fence. "What's the matter?" innocently asked the reporter. "What's the matter?" shouted Burleson. "I paid $125 for that fence at public auction; I paid $100 to have it painted black and have the tops gilded; I paid $73 freight on it to my home in Austin, Tex., where it was to be placed on my home grounds. What's the matter? Why, now I've got to give the consarned thing away!" Washington Star. The Little Things of Life.

Resolutions providing for changes in the conditions of rural life in this country, which it was stated would decrease the burdens and increase tbe opportunities of the farmer and hi family, were adopted at the third an nual meeting of the committee of agricultural development and education of the American Bankers' association. Vocational training in the public schools, plans to make the marketing of farm products easier and more profitable and federal aid to make farm demonstration work more general throughout the country were among the things urged. The resolutions in part follow: "Our committee, being especially con cerned with agriculture and instn.c tion in that line in the country schools, realizes that it needs and must have the largest measure of aid to the end that the country boys and girls may be placed on an equal footing with those in town. Therefore we urge both state and federal aid in this direction. "As farm wort demonstration through local or country demonstrator has proved to be the most practical and effective means of improving framing methods and as the govern raent has contributed thousands of dollars toward such work in certain states and little or nothing in others we indorse and earnestly urge legis lation on the part of congress that will provide generous federal aid in all the states for such work."

MARCH 11, 1914 In these days of progress when every avenue of enterprise is opening new opportunities for intelligent, active people, prob ably none equals the farm. The fact that every farm product has increased in price, that the world is not over supplied, that the larger part of productive land is under private control, and- but little yet to be parceled out to farm owners, ought to impress every farmer of the importance, of the necessity of intense farming. From the earth man's supplies must come, and since the demand for agricultural products is increasing all the while, it is a plain facS that the supplies must increase to maintain even present high prices. Should the output of the farms remain a few years as they are now, or should there be a shrinkage, the effect - on prices would become extremely burdensome to the average wage earner. The solution of the situation as we see it, and the most profitable one to the farmer and the just one to posterity is the building and developing the productive powers of the land. It is not what you attempt to do, but what you really accomplish, that adds profit and pleasure. The man who makes more corn on five acres, land being equal, is doing much more good for himself and the world than the one who cultivates ten acres. This is now the accepted theory throughout the country, and leading agriculturalists are doing all within Fheir power to stir up, educate and induce farmers everywhere, to adopt scientific methods. The appeal is made through agricultural papers, by encouragement from State and Nation. Many counties in the various States are awake to the real situation, and The Glasgow Times of the 3rd inst, contained a surprise for the Democrats of Adair the announcement that Judge Samuel E. Jones would not Joe a candidate for Appellate Judge in the Third district. For more than a year his name had been prominently mentioned in connection with the race, and his friends generally believed that he would enter the contest for the Democratic nomination. There is not a doubt but he would have been a formidable candidate, his ability for the place never having been called' in question. He has served the 10th Judicial district as the Judge of the Circuit court for several terms, and has been a very satisfactory Judge for all the people. As a Jurist he stands high and is the peer of any man in this section of Kentucky. Judge Jones is not generally acquainted in this immediate section, but those who know him well, speak of him as being without a stain and having, all the elements which go to make up a fair and unpartial Judge. Eight years ago, when his name was mentioned for the Appellate bench, this county was outspoken for bim, and at this time, although the voters of this section were unamimously for our own candidate, the Hon. Rollin Hurt, there was no feeling, except one of kindness, for Judge Jones. The Glasgow Times intimates strongly that Judge Jones will to his presstand for ent position, and from the best information we have, he will have no opposition, as he is exceedingly popular in every county composing the district. re-electi- Sheep sold for $5.50 per head; Bowling Green. milch cows sold for $45.00 .to $126.00; one bull, for $100.00; one pair of mules for $262.50 and one Editor News: As usual I enjoyed my visit at young mare for $175.00.

He possesses extreme speed, style and action, and the most perfect disposition of any stallion I have ever seen or handled. He has five distinct gaits; and goes them all in a most attractive manner. You will note from his breeding that he has for his sire the famous old Red Bird, who has perhaps sird as many s show and sale horses as stallion in Kentucky, and traces on his dam's side to Cabell's Lexany ington, conceeded by all horsemen to be one of the greatest sires that ever lived. Raven Bird is one of Red Bird's greatest sons, and has proven himself an excellent breeder, and we have every reason to believe that, if he is given an opportunity he will make a reputation equal to that of his worthy sire.

There were shrieks from the women passengers, while the 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 bos 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 tnrobbing in time with the jumping of the horses. When the turn was reached the velocity w s still so great that there was little hope. The women recommenced to shriek. "Stop that!"' said the driver. "You II excite the horses." The sries reased. There was no sound oxoent what came from the horses' hoofs and tue 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 i few feet from the edge.

The stranger registered as John Gordon of Chicago, and. when he gave out that he might remain in Blissfield for several weeks, everybody wondered what business could have brought him there. After three or four days it leaked out that the man was a government agent, who had come to watch tbe men who had been stealing timber off certain lands. That gave him increased respect, and yet even I, a schoolboy, noticing the man's steel gray eyes, firm set jaw and thin lips, could have told that he was. cruel, if not bad hearted. Ue had lost his left leg at the knee, and the substitute was not a cork leg1, but a crotch and a stick the plainest and cheapest sort of an affair. His dress was. also very plain, his speech that of the common order. "The man with the wooden leg." as he came to be generally spoken of. had been in town about a week when one of the leading merchants was robbed of about a thousand dollars in casb. The local constable did a great deal o talking, but struck no clew, and in his desperation be asked Gordon to assist him. believing no doubt that a government officer of any sort ought to be more or less posted in detective work. Gordon seemed to think the matter over for awhile and then replied: "The case is as plain as the nosem your face. The merchant's son took the money, and after this thing quiets down he will go off to St Louis to have a good time. I'd stake my life he's got every dollar Of the missing cash securely hidden away somewhere." Ten or twelve days passed, and then came a terrible tragedy. The richest man in Blissfield was Squire Iliggins. He owned the woolen mills, a store and several houses and had money to lend. He was a widower, but lived with his son and wife. His room was on the ground floor, while all others slept upstairs. He had no safe, but kept his money in a tin box on a shelf in a closet. He bad a bank account over at Medina, ten miles away, but often had $1,000 or more in the house. One evening when the others were ready to go to bed he announced that he had some business to attend to and was seated at his desk in the sitting room when the others retired. About midnight the daughter-in-law heard a fall and a groan downstairs, and when her husband went down to investigate the squire was found dead on the floor, having been stabbed no less than five times in d-- House and grounds were searched, but the murderer had escaped, and he had also taken with him the cash box., which contained about $700. Gordon seemed to take a lively interest in the murder. No outside help would have been called in and the murderer might have gone his way but for the arrival of another stranger. He was, as it happened, a first class detective, who was just then employed in tracing a missing man. The crime was a day old when be reached Blissfield. He heard all the particulars from the loungers at the inn and then volunteered to look the ground over. This was a courtesy on his part which the sheriff could not refuse, and after supper he was takeu to the house. "" the bod. " ; Dr. James Triplet! - Stomach Pains DR.

The sheriff, detective and constable, with two or three other citizens, proceeded to the inn and to Gordon's room. He was cooi ana quiet nnu oi- fere( cjjjars aU around, but those who were watching him saw him grow pale as the sheriff began by begging his pardon and hoped no offense would be takeu. but would he let them look at his wooden leg. Gordon faltered and bluffed and was reaching for his pistol under his pillow when the detective seized him. When they had him securely bound they unstrapped his wooden leg. and. lo. his left foot was there as right as any man's. Yes. he was the man who had robbed, the merchant and tbe postmaster, and he was also the murderer of Squire HIgglns.
