Lindsey-Wilso- n and the Columbia High school Teams Meet the Fast Somerset Quintet. (Reported.) la the fastest and most hotly contested game of basket ball ever played Training here, the Lindsey-Wilso- n School defeated the Somerset High School, claimants of the State High School championship, Friday night by the score of 32 to 31. This was the best contest ever seen here, both quintets displaying excellent team work and goal shooting. Lindsey played a more consistent game than the visitors, taking the lead at the first which was never overcome. Somerset played more by spurts. Theyjnade a strong bid for victory in the final half, but the local five stopped them just in time to save a victory. Bahan played best for Somerset, while honors were equally divided among the Lindsey team Although this was one of the hardest fought games ever played on a local floor there was very little rougeness and the game progressed very nicely. Until this defeat Somerset had lost only to Lexington High School. The visitors claimed championship honors by defeating Manual and High School of Louisville and Cynthiana, who defeated Lexington, and by victories over various other clubs of the State. LINE-U- P. Word reached here last Wednesday morning that a distillery, located at Sand Lick, a watering place, where Adair, Cumberland and Russell corner, was blown up by dynimite Monday night. Our informant stated that the boiler and other fixtures were scattered in every direction. One hundred gallons of whiskey were destroyed. The distillery, we are infom-ed- , belonged co John and Ed Oldham, and they estimate theirloss at Sl,500. The owners of the still sent for blood hounds, but we have not learned the result of their trailing. It is not believed that the parties guilty of the act live in the immediate locality. It was a registered distillery and the Government will doubtless make a diligent effort to run down the guilty parties. There is no doubt but the buildings were dynamited, as Mr. John Oldham heard the explosion, his f residence being in mile of his distillery. Upon hearing the report, he got up, looked out, to see the buildings in flames. one-hal- The "Old Maids' Conventin," a play given by some of the young ladies of the town, assisted by a few school giris, was a great success From the time the old maids began to arrive on the platform till the curtain was drawn the house was lin a roar of laughter. All the young ladies who took part did exceptionally well. The reports of the various committees on the old bachelors brought forth side splitting laughter, as did many remarks and the acting of those who did not have committee reports. Mr. Leon Lewis, who was Prof. Makesnew in the play, was at his best, and did his part as hardly any one else could. The play was gotten up by Mrs. Wil son and the young ladies for the purpose of getting some nice clocks and other things needed in the rooms of our public school. The amount taken in at the door was $29.25 and expenses were $1.45. Mrs. Wilson and all who took part in the play deserve mucli credit for the splendid way in which the play was given, and for their ingenuity in getting up the play for the above mentioned purpose. Mr. F. H. Durham, who formerly lived at Merrimac, Taylor county, is now a permanent citizen of Columbia. Last week he purchased of Mr. J. B. Barbee, the residence near the Graded School building, arid which is at present occupied by Mr. Charles Walls. The consideration was $1,500. Mr. Durham will be given possession the first of April, at which time his wife and children will arrive from Taylor county. Mr. Durham is engaged in the poultry business and is a citizen, having an excellent wife and an interesting family of children. They will be given a cordial welcome. first-class Annoucement of the C.

Reported.) j Saturday evening, as had been planned, the fast squad of Somerset basket ball "boys, met the local high school team in their gym. The Som erset boys outweighed the local team several pounds to the man and were stronger pnysicaiiy. The gym was d with people anxious for the game to start for some time before the whistle blew for beginning the contest. The first half was spirited and hard fought, the local team keeping the ball m their end of the gym most of the time. The first half was almost over before Somerset had secured anything more than one foul. In the last minute or two Somerset got one more foul, and Converse, for Somerset also got a field goal. When time was up for the first half the score stood 8 to 4 in favor of the local team. Diddle and Lewis had each got a field goad and Diddle had pitched four fouls. The hard playing in the first half with their much heavier and stronger opponents, weakened the C. H. S., boys for the second half. The C. H. S. boys also lacked "wind" in the second half. Soon after the second half started Somerset evened the score and took the lead. The baskets were easier for them and they had excellent team work. In his last division Converse got 6 field goals, Bahan 6, Reid 1 and Gooch 1. Converse also pitched two fouls. For C. II. S., Diddle, Antle, Lewis and Herriford each 1 field goal, and Diddle pitched 4 fouls. Score of last half 30 to 12. Final score 34 to 20 in favor of Somerset.

Lebanon, Lexington, March 3d. L. T. Cooper, the man who created such a favorable imppression in the big Eastern cities with his health theories and medicine, has attracted immense gatherings in Lexington, where the famous philanthropist has delivered a series of lectures in connection with his introduction of Tanlac, the medicine that is producing such remarkable results in Central Kentucky. Probably ten or fifteen thousand have heard Cooper talk during the last few weeks. Possessed of an unusual amount of personal magnetism, Cooper seems to draw his crowds from all walks of life, and from everywhere in the Blue Grass section. During the course of a recent lecture he said: "Possibly the most prevalent and distressing condition known to we Americans, is chronic catarrh of the mucous membranes. Catarrh of the stomach is the most frequent cause of dyspepsia, and catarrhal conditions in the nose and throat lead to inevitable deafness.

But, through our own carelessness and unwillingness to conform to the teachings of the men who know we are still bearing an enormous burden resulting directly from contagious disease. What we must do and do at once, if our are to enjoy health and happiness, is to in a wholehearted, conscientious way to prevent this future evil, and the only way in which this can be done is by bringing every one to seethe possible results to be achieved. People must be ignorant of these facts or they would not do as they do. A single instance will prove the correctness of th's statement Over one hundred years ago, Edward Jenner discovered a vaccine which would render a person who was inoculated, immune from smallpox. Now a careful study made during the past few years has shown that practically every victim of smallpox had not been vaccinated It is obvious that if every person would be vaccinated, smallpox would soon cease to exist, for it owes its continued healthy existence to the fact that it is transmitted from one person having the disease to another. It would be very simple, would it not, for every one to be vaccinated, and the expense in comparison with the expense caused by the sickness, not to mention the horrible disfigurements which often times follow, would be very slight. Tnere are of course, certain persons .who are opposed to vaccination, just as there are persons who are opposed to every good movement. The opposition, however, is conspicuous mainly by its minority: And again, science has furnished us with a vaccine which will. render a person immune to typhoid fever. Large experiments have been conducted in the army with results that are absolutely conclusive of the soundness of the theory. There is not a person of twenty-on- e perhaps, who reads in telligently that is not aware of these facts. Practically all State boards of health have made arrangements for a free distribution of the vaccines. And yet how many have taken advantage of them? The percentage is so small that I feel ashamed to mention it. In the light of the foregoing facts, there can be only one conclusion drawn. You do not realize that preventable disease can be prevented. By preventable disease, I mean contagious disease, as tuberculosis, smallpox, typhoid fever, scarlet fever, whooping cough, measles and dipthe-ria- . The figures representing the economic less from preventable disease in the United States during a single year are .almost unbelievable. But when you know that in the city of Chicago alone, the loss during six months amounted to over six millions of dollars, you can calculate what it would be for the whole country. This question confronts us. What is to be done? Scientists who have devoted their lives to research have shown us that there are ways and means of preventing preventable disease. They have even gone so far as to lay down certain rules for us to follow. But the ultimate success of their endeavors is dependent upon our actions. No health officer, however efficient he may be, can secure results alone. He must have not a third or a half,-bu- t his entire community standing by him. And every health officer who has given any serious thought to the work knows that this is the case. Taking for granted that you know what is to be done the next thing is to do it, do it yourself and see that your neighbor does it. If your town has not ordinances stringent enough to guarantee good health conditions, see that such ordinances are passed, and what is far more important, see that they are enforced. You will be curtailing no man's liberty. Every person has the right to do according to the dictates of his own conscience, in so far as these dictates do not interfere with the health, wealth and happiness of his neighbor. For instance, if an automobile owner likes to drive fast and take chances that would endanger his own life, no one would object so long as he did the driving where there was no one else, but when he attempts such a course in a crowded street, he not only places himself in danger, but jeopardizes the lives of others also.

Logan has made formal announcement of his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Attorney GeneraL subject to the August primary. Mr. Logan can justly be recognized as the logical successor to Attorney General James Garnett from the fact that, as assistant in that office, he has shown himself a tireless and thoroughly efficient worker for the welfare of the Commonwealth.

He is a native of Edmonson county where he acquired the foundation of hfe education, and as a young man first practiced law as his chosen profession. While as a promising barrister, he exhibited those traits of character and ability which have been characteristic: throughout his entire career. Many important cases have been entrusted to his care by the present Attorney General, and in all his dealings he has been fearless in the discharge of his duty and his ability to manage the State's litigation. the-head d Mr. Logan has long been identified with some of the strongest fraternal orders in the State, and at the' present time is the Grande Master of the Kentucky Grand Lodge of Independent Order o Odd Fellows.

Two years' work in discovering "democratic standards for the nurture and protection of the nation's children" is described by Miss Julia C. Lathrop. chief of the children's bureau, in. her annual report which was made public recently. In establishing standards Miss Lathrop sought information in various countries, according to her statement Duncdin, New Zealand, has an infant death rate of only 38 per 1,000 births. Comparing this with "the rate in such favorable localities In our own J I country as Philadelphia (135.5 per 1,000 in 19131 or Boston (109.6 in 1913) it is evident that much serious work remains to be done." ;mm M rtWMM "Tl ii Whm intV TW' i iTMTi ( - ZVHBff'.VKHP'HH 1 'V3FSuKH 61 number of special reports.

"A study is now going forward," says she, "of the methods of issuing employment certificates to children in various states." This is important since the work certificate may be used to enforce minimum age provisions and also as a protection against unsuitable work. Another study is under way which has reference to the shifting of jobs of children between fourteen and sixteen years of age. "The changing of young people from one employer to another and from one job to another undoubtedly has an important bearing upon their later success in industry and in life," states the Data on Care of Babies.

The two years' work has been done by a small staff on a small appropriation. A larger appropriation has been granted, and during he coming year field studies of "the social significance of infant mortality" will be made in a number of states and cities.

WJ'fV -- . - 8 THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS OUTSTANDING WAR FEATURES. Another important victory over the Russians was announced tfO'day by the German War Office, in the capture of the Polish city of Przasnysz. The heaviest fighting in Northern Poland since the expulsion of the Russians from East Prussia has occured in the vicinity of this city, and its fall is said to have led to the capture of more than 10.000 Russians. Pettograd has not confirmed the report. indiThe French and German official communications of cate that the calm on tie western front is unbroken. French attacks in Champagne continue without important results. by Sir Edward A declaration in the House of Commons rey constituted perhaps the most important political development .since the opening of the war. The Foreign Secretary announced that Great Britain was in sympathy with Russia's hope of obtaining Constantinople as a result of the war with Turkey. The second Week of Germany's submarine campaign opened to- 4ay with the loss of two more British ships. The Deptfort and Western Coast, both small steamers, were sunk off the English scoast by a mine or a torpedo. Previously ten vessels, seven of them British, had been sent to the bottom. Germany apparently is preparing to extend the field of these operations, for three submarines have been sent to Pola, presumably for use in the Adriatic and Mediterranean. The American proposals for cessation of this form of warfare and the admission of foodstuffs to Germany are before the German and British Governments, but there are no indications they will find acceptance. Germany's claim to an overwhelming victory in East Prussia, resulting in the virtual annihilation of the Russian Tenth Army, is denied categorically by the Russian General Staff. The admission is made that two army corpe suffered heavily during the retreat, but the remaining corps are said to have escaped from the German surrounding movement. Efforts of the Germans to clinch their victory by striking a decisive blow in Northern Poland are leading to continuous battles all along this section of the front, the outcome of which the Russian jstafi: does not attempt to forecast. Hardly less intense is the campaign in the Carpathians. Ths Petrograd announcement claims successes for the Russians in small engagements. Dispatches from the front to Swiss newspapere s that the Russians are winning consistently, and that the have lost more than 3,000 men at Dukla Pass. to-da- y to-da- y as-ire- re A Russian 'officer expressed the' view that the German claims fit on higher ground.

After hours in an open and leaking boat in a snowstorm which caused them to suffer acutely, the men say, they signalled a steamer but no notice was taken of their appeal.
