Died Near Lebanon. Capt. Norman R. Christie, who was a native of Adair county, died suddenly at his late home, in Marion county, last Wednesday morning. He was a Captain in the Federal army during the Civil war, and was eighty years old when the end came. He removed from Adair to Marion county many years ago. He was a brother of Capt. C. C. Christie, who died near Camp Knox, ten or twelve years ago. HEALTH OFFICER'S COLUMN. To rescue the fallen is good, I knew Walter Taylor as few people knew him. He and I were intimate friends for a number of years, and in that time I was with him so much that lam sure 1 knew just whatsort of a man he was. As a student, he was the equal of any man in college. Dr. Macastrey, Professor of Greek, told me almost a year ago, that Taylor was one of the best Greek students he had ever had. Prof. Freeman, Professor of English, said to me a few days ago, that he was one of the most consistent students he ever had. His grades in all his studies during the time he has been in college have been high. I have seen men who got soma things easier than Taylor did, but he kept after it until he got it. He always worked too hard. 1 have often' told hii he bhould take more recreation, but he continued to work. His life has been clean during all the time I have known him. I have never known him to do anything i, Christian man could not do. I have never heard anyone say anything against him. While he doubtless had his faults, and made his mistakes, -- as we all do on some occasions-- I have to learn yet of anything in him which a true man would be ashamed of. I knew him also as a young preacher. He had never preached but a few times, but was beginning to preach occasionally. He had no idea of no ambition for a comfortable position, but he wanted to preach and to preach where there was the greatest need of meu. v 1 have been asked to write this short sketch with reference to Taylor because I knew him during the years he was in college. I do not believe that anything I have said is the least extravagant, I'm sure it is not meant to be. I think it would be hard to state too highly the sterling worth of this sketch. It is a privilege to have known him, and to know him was to love him. M. R. Gabbert. self-seekin- BY TJ. L. TAYLOR. Court Items.

Crown Lecturer National Farmers Union A broad campaign of publicity on the subject of rural life is needed in FARMER RADFORD ON WOMAN SUFFRAGE The home is the greatest contribution of women to the world, and the hearthstone is her throne. Our social structure is built around her, and social righteousness Is in her charge. Her beautiful' life lights the skies of hope and her refinement is the charm of twentieth century civilization. Her graces and her power are the cumulative products of generations of queenly conquest, and her crown of exalted womanhood is jeweled with the wisdom of saintly mothers. She has been a great factor in the glory of our country, and her noble achievements should not be marred or her hallowed influence blighted by the coarser duties of citizenship. American chivalry should never permit her to bear the burdens of defending and maintaining government, but should preserve her unsullied from the allied influences of politics, and protect her from the weighty responsibilities of the sordid affairs of life that will crush her ideals and lower her standards. The motherhood of the farm is our inspiration, she is the guardian of our domestic welfare and a guide to a higher life, but directing the affairs of government is not within woman's sphere, and political gossip would cause her to neglect the home, forget to mend our clothes and burn the biscuits. RURAL SOCIAL CENTERS We need social centers where our young people can be entertained, amused and instructed under the direction of cultured, clean and corn petent leadership, where aesthetic surroundings stir the love for' the beautiful, where art charges the atmosphere with inspiration and power, and innocent amusements Instruct and brighten their lives. To hold our young people on the farm we must make farm life more attractive as well as the business of farming more remunerative. The school house should be the social unit, properly equipped for nourishing and building character, so that the lives of our people can properly function around it and become supplied with the necessary elements of human thought and activity. this state today to bring the problems of the farmers to the forefront- - The city problems are blazoned upon the front pages of the metropolitan dailies and echoed in the country press, but the troubles ol the farmers are seldom told, except by those who seek to profit by the story, and the glitter of the package ofttimes obscures the substance. A searching investigation into the needs of the farmers will reveal many Inherent defects in our economic system that can be easily remedied when properly understood and illuminated by the power of the press. The rural press, the pulpit and the school are a trinity of powerful influences that the farmer must utilize to their fullest capacity before he can occupy a commanding position in pub-- . lie affairs. These gigantic agencies are organized in every rural community and only await the patronage and cooperation of the farmers to fully develop their energy and usefulness. They are local forces working for the best interests of their respective communities. Their work is to build and their object is to serve. They prosper only through the development and prosperity of the community. Every farmer in this state should subscribe for the local paper, as well as farm periodicals and such other publications as he may find profitable, but he should by all means subscribe for his local paper, and no home should be without it. The local paper is part of the community life and the editor understands the farmer's problems. It is the local press that will study the local problems and through its columns deal with subjects of most vital importance to local life of the community. Bridge and Inlay work a Specialty.

JAN. 27, 1915 Announcements. FOR CIRCUIT COUltT CLEItK. We are authorized to announce F. A. Strange a candidate for circuit clerk of Adair county, subject to the Democratic primary to be held in August. Sunday. anCongressman Stanley's nouncement for the Democratic nomination for Governor, which appeared last week, stands by it in line with the self and-no- t of other distinguished Democrats who seek this honor. The News regrets that Mr. Stanley chooses to pre cipitate a bitter campaign, for if his position means any thing, it certainly foreshadows bitterness that will factionalize and involve the party seriously in the November battle. His attack on Mr. Haly, who, so far, is not a candidate, and his denunciation of Haley, Rhea and Shackelford, indicating that they head what he terms the "invisible government," points clearly to the manner and means he chooses to advance his own interest in the August primary. So far as we know, and so far as we have been able to understand, Haly, Rhea and Shackelford have neva friend, nor er betrayed launched a campaign destructive of party interests. There can be no doubt that many of Mr. Stanley's warmest friends prefer that he accept the gauge of battle set in the announcements of his worthy competitor s As we see it his statements not only denounce directly certain Democrats, but that "invisible government," headed, run and controlled by the "triumvirate," as Mr. Stanley puts it, is a criticism of our State government and our two distinguished senators. Some years ago Napoleon Hays turned on the "Calcium lights" in his effort to secure the n o m i na t i on, but did nothing but wreck himself and defeat his party. Just how many Democrats will take kindly to a Napoleonic cleansing of the Aegean stables remains to be seen, but for our part we desire a campaign that will leave the party united and the nominees unfetse-ye- re Mrs. Mollie Littrell has been who spent last, Saturday night real sick for several weeks, and and Sunday with Miss Butler. is no better at this writing.

"One of the greatest issues which will confront the Democracy of Kentucky at the ensuing August primary election will be the control of the state board of valuation and assessment and the tremendous powers inherent in it. The Democrat who is to be elected governor must turn a face of flint toward every proposal to use this board for putting screws' to any public service corporation which may refuse to do its bidding, or for rewarding with any character of privilege or exemption such corporations as may agree to become part and parcel of the political machine. For unless a governor of Kentucky can keep clean the board of valuation and assessment he can not give an honest, economical and efficient administrachains. tion.

The Perfect Laxative For Elderly People Age has its attractions no less than youth in a more serene and quieter life. Hut it is this very life of rest without ulHcient exercise that brings with it those disorders that arise from inactivity. Chief of these are a chronic, persistent constipation. Most elderly people are troubled in this way, with accompanying symptoms of belching, drowsiness after eating, headaches and general lassitude. Frequently there is difficulty of digesting even light food. Much mental trouble ensues, as it is hard to find a suitable remedy. First of all the advice may be riven that elderly people should not use salts, cathartic pills or powders, waters or any of the more violent purgatives. What they need, women as well as men. Is a mild laxative tonic, one that is pleasant to take and yet acts without griping. Tho remedy that fills all these requirements, and has in addition tomlc Trustworthy people like A. B. Tigrett.

As he has been appearing there for countless centuries, without a doubt he is used to it, but this does not prevent his remaining unpleasant. "The camel," says an oriental proverb, curses its parents when it has to go up hill, and its Maker when it goes down." This is hardly to be wondered at, for it is a well established fact that even young camels never play. They are born sad, and thereafter their life is one long protest against being made to work, though work has always been their portion.

So far as it is known, the Germans who performed this, spectacular feat escaped unscratched. .Earlier reports that one Zeppelin was brought down have not been borne out. It has not yet been established whether aeroplanes or Zeppelins were employed by the raiders. An official Russian statement describes a series of action along the Vistula, northwest of Waasaw, during January 17 .nd 18. In three of these engagements, it is said, the Russians won the advantage, twice silencing German batteries and on another occasion repulsing an attack with heavy loss to the Germans. Two victories over the British forces operating near the head of the Persian Gulf are claimed by the Turkish War Office, in a statement issued at Constantinople. It is asserted that the Brit-.si- h attempted a surprise attack on the Turks, but were repulsed with the loss of 100 killed and wounded. In a cavalry engagement near the junction of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, the British are reported to have withdrawn after heavy losses.

The Globe urges retaliation in kind, observing that there are several flourishing towns within easy reach of British airmen. A press dispatch received here from Yarmouth says it is generally believed there that the raiders of last night came in aeroplanes of large size. There still is a difference of opinion among Englishmen as to whether-thaerial raiders were Zeppelin dirigible balloons or aero planes,- - and the weight of opinion is veering to the la tter, though a considerable number of observesr believe they saw Zeppelins. At Yarmouth, which is the largest of the towns visited by the aircraft, the police issued a positive statement that the raiders were aeroplanes. The small size of the bombs and the few mizsiles dropped supports the theory that they were not Zeppelins, as those air vessels could carry a much more formidable cargo of explosives. e is the where he is having a number of The Westminister Gaz- saw logs made into lumber.

German airmen deilvered their long predicted attack on England last night. From a base presumably in Germany, they flew over the North Sea to the eastern coast of England, where, for nearly four hour3, from 8:20 o'clock p. m., until about midnight, they circled over a group of some six English towns only a little more than 100 miles from London, apparently dropping bombs at will.

Now we take it for this section of country that every reasonable thinking man with the least bit of intelligence will be in for any way that will secure us a better road system. Let it come anyway we can get it and I am satisfied there will be no kick coming from our people for we all know there is nothing that develops a place or section of county any more than having goad roads going in and coming out.
