Monday was the opening of the January term of the Adair circuit court, ib brought a large crowd of people to town, and all classes of business were fairly good throughout the day People were here from all adjoining comities. There was some stock on the market and several head changed hands. Judge Carter and Commonwealth's attorney, A. A. Huddleston, arrived in due time, and by the noon hour the Judge had completed his instructions and at 1 o'clock that branch of the court went to work. The instructions were lengthy, covering all the crimes known to the law and it is believed that the grand jury will be busy seven or eight days of the term. Early in the morning all the magis trates handed in their reports, the Master Commissioner and other officials. The court will be in session the full two weeks. The Family Garden.

Harrow Escape. On one occasion in the village of 'Houyet, on the Lys. twenty kilome ters from Dinant, the fugitive soldiers bad a narrow escape. A German force, hich the French believed to be small, 'had occupied the royal chateau and was making merry with the contents of a well filled larder and 'wine cellars of the place while the few prnalnins Inhabitants 1" t1'- vi'-gThe commander of the i French soldiers decided to put an end to this condition of affairs and undercook personally to trap and capture the ' -- at F German cmiinindti wen be luiaginuu wuen the latter ran during a morning stroll he came sud- -- 22-2- 3 -- -- on Lys-Semo- is , d'Ar-.den- ne -- -- were-starvin- ! time the German military authorities had posted throughout the two Belgian provinces of Luxemburg and Namur the following announcement addressed to the fugitive soldiers: "French Soldiers We know where you are and have full information regarding your strength. In your own Interest we advise you to surrender and promise that your lives will be safe. If you refuse every one of you will be shotJ' On the following morning the Germans were amazed to find written in a bold hand across several of the posters the following line: "If yon know where we are why don't you come and get us?" And underneath appeared the signature of the French commanding officer with hi full name and rank and the number of his regiment. Peekaboo Around Straw Stack. How Tommy Atkins and a German soldier played "peekaboo" around a straw stack and ended by each peace ably departing for his own trench with an armful of straw is related by a letter to hia family by a member of n Lancaster regiment, says a dispatch. "At Armentieres we stopped and dug trenches so close to the German line".' he writes, "that one of their patrols shouted in English to a party of our transport bringing up rations, 'Here, you fools; you are going right into the German trenches!' "When you are fighting you go nearly wild with rage But during the lulls you cool down and think about other things. So 1 thought 1 would go out into the field and get some straw to make myself comfortable. "I was pulling out the straw on one side of the stack when I saw a German soldier peeping around. I had left my gun behind. What if he would shoot me or tane me prisoner? To see which way he was coming I peeped around again. He peeped, and then we both jumped back. Then 1 began to wonder whether he also was unarmed. The next time we saw each other we both felt the chances were safe. So there we were, be on one side and 1 on the other, each pulling at the stack. Then we turned our backs on each other, and each went to his trench with arms clasping a big bunch of straw. He said nothing, and I said nothing. If we had brought our guns It would have been a question of the best man. But, as it was, It never occurred to us to settle it with our fists." Enemies Used Same Trench.

The origin of the present ocean basins goes back to the vci beginning of geological, history and antedates every period that can be fixed with reasonable certainty These facts explain why the earth has so great a quantity of water and where tint water came from It i? believed that the oceans cannot continue to exisr for all time as we see them tod. v. The minerals constituting the solid met f the e.irth are contin ually al "rbing water. It has been calculate that granite contains two gallons i absorbed water in every cubic yard The condition of the moon, as revealed by telescopes and by photography, shows that a globe may, as far at least as its surface is concerned become absolutely arid, no water what ever remaining upon it, although in ages past it may have been covered with oceans. The drying up process, however, must be a slow one, and no considerable quantity of the oceanic waters can be absorbed into the earth's Interior until the core of the globe has become, relatively cool. At present the internal heat is so great that water cannot penetrate to a depth of more, say. than twenty miles at the most It is only as the rocks cool that they begin to take up water in combination. If we heat water to the boiling point we turn it into steam. If we heat the steam still further it becomes an invisible vapor, which may be made so hot that it will char a piece of paper like a flame. On the other hand, if we cool water to the freezing point it turns into a brittle solid ice. So if we had happened to be born in a fiery hot world we should only have known water as a searing vapor, capa ble of devouring metals like a strong acid, and, on the contrary, if our lot had been cast in an intensely cold world our only knowledge of water, as a natural product, would have been in the shape of a solid, harder than most rocks.

The Peevish Child Needs a Laxative It Is natural for a child to lauRh play and when it sulks drowsily and or cries you may depend on it something physical is the matter. If you see no evidences of a serious ailment you will not be wrong if you quietly give it a dose of mild laxative that evening on putting it. to bed. The remedy most generallv recommended for this purpose is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, which mothers throughout the country have been giving their children for a quarter of a century. Today thousands of families are using it where hundreds used it then, and there must be good reason for this word of mouth recommendation. It is admittedly the perfect laxative for children, women, old people and all others who need a gentle bowel stimulant and not a violent salt, cathartic pill or doctored water. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin will act gently, and when taken before retiring will bring com plete satisfaction in the morning. After a short use of this remedy all forms of outside aid can be dispensed with and nature will again act alone. All classes of good American people keep it in the home for ills of the stomach, liver and bowels, and among the thousands who have written the doctor that they will never be without it are Mrs. J. "W. Haynesr, Brady, Ky and Mrs. E. L. Weeks, 1741 VT. 2nd St.. Owensboro, Ky. A dose of it has saved many a person from a serious illness.

It is not believed possible that troops can cross the desert which stretches eastward from the Suez Canal and even if they conquered the waterless waste they would be so exhausted by the effort that the British forces in Egypt, it is confidently thoughh. could easily repel them.

He said that 200,000 of them had sailed from 'India for France, Egypt, East Africa and Mesopotamia. Those in Mesopotamia are now presumably advancing with the British troops on Bagdad. Rumors were current today, as they have been on several occasions, that German submarines had ma'de an attack on Dover and that two of them were sunk. The authorities deny that any submarines have been sunk, but give no explanation of the firing of the guns of the forts which occurred late last, night. Vic-eropre-vious Columbia, Ky. m .roJ LATE WAR NEWS. London, Jan. 13 (10:35 p. m.). Battles large and small, all ihaving an important bearing on the situation, are in progress at d points in the war areas in Europe and Asia. ". The Turk have occupied the Persian town of Tabriz, which is a:Russian sphere of influence; are battling with .the Russians in ie Caucasus and are reported to be making preparations for an .Invasion of Egypt. The Russisns have resumed the offensive in East Prussia, 'while the Germans continue to attack them ia Poland, and they are again trying to cross the Nida River in Southern Poland, which ?is held by the Austrians. The battle which is creating the most interest, however, is "that in the Aisne Valley, to the northeast of Soissons, where the .French have been attacking the German intrenchments for a week. They succeeded in taking some important positions on Friday last and again on Sunday, but the Germans bringing up reinforcements, recovered some of the lost ground. Otherwise, the unfavwidely-separatei----- In the capital itself, so far as known, there was no loss oil life, but a great deal of damage was done, churches and statues suffering most. For a time the people were stricken with fear, and there was a vertable panic in the hospitals, monasteries and convents. The buildings on both sides of the Porta del Popolo, the north entrance to Rome, threatened to fall, and the eagle decorating the gate crashed to the ground. The obelisk in St. Peter's Square was shaken and badly damaged, while the statue of St. John Lat- eran and the statues of the Apostles, surmounting the basilica, are in danger of collaspsing. The famous colonnade decorating St. I Peter's Square was lowered four feet, while the adjacent house J once occupied by the sisters of Pope Pius X, was badly cracked. Owing to the wide extent of the disturbance and its evident terrible consequences, the actual effects of the earthquake are not at present known, owing to the cutting off of communications. SEVERAL CITIES DESTROYED. The fortified city of Aquila has in this way been cut off, but It is reported several villages in that region were destroyed. Likewise Potenza, capital of the province of the same name, on the eastern declivity of the Apennines, which has a population of near-I- y 20,000 has been isolated. In 1857 this town was almostdestroy-e- d by an earthquake. Father Alfani, director of the. observatory at Valle di Pompeii, the noted sesimologist, has sent the following telegram to Rome: "The earthquake registered by our apparatus appears to have been most disastrous for a radius of more than 100 miles. Probably its center was the province of Potenza. Meanwhile communications with Potenza are interrupted and a grave disaster there is feared. A dispatch from Aquila says the village of Aiella, near Celano was destroyed, and ttiat severe damage was done along the line. IN HEART OF ITALY. . which damage was done are situated virMost of the towns in tually in the heart of Italy, in a line running northeast and southeast from Rome eastward toward the Adriatic Sea. The country in the province of Rome and the Department of the Abruzzi is mostly mountainous, but thickly populated. Numerous villages and towns dot the territory. Monte Rotondo has a population of about 5,000. It was here in 1867 that Garibaldi defeated the papal forces. At Tivoli, where one person is said to have been killed there is a population of some 140,000. It lies eighteen mile3 north east of Rome and retains many of the antiquities of the old Roman days, among them the Temple of Tiberius and Villa d'Este, celebrated for the beauty of its architecture. Pofi is a "village of some orable weather has compelled the Germans and Allies to confine .themselves to artillery engagements. LAKS FREEZE OVER. "The renewed activity of the Russians in East Prussia indicates that the freezing over of the Mazurian Lakes, for which they have been waiting, has at Jast occurred, for otherwise it would be impossible for troops to advance through the narrow defiles defended by the Germans. The Russians claim also to have made a further advance to 'the southwest of Rawa, another indication that they contemplate a repetition of their attempt at an invasion of East Prussia from the East and South, despite the fact that repeated German attacks south of the lower Vistula in Poland are keeping them fairly busy. These attacks are being made at different points and according to the Russian official statements, are easily repelled.

Italy again has been visited by an earthquake of wide extent which, according to the latest advices, has resulted in the death of 12,000 persons and injury to possibly 20,000 more in the towns and villages destroyed.
