Notwithstanding his advanced agef he was perfectly conscious up to the final dissolution. He was born and reared in Columbia and never lived elsewhere, his allotment of life being, lacking a few weeks, eighty-fiv- e years, his birthday fallihg on April the 25th. When our war with Mexico came Mr. Eubank enlisted in Capt. Jack Squires company and served until peace was declared. He was a mechanical genuis, and after returning from the war he opened a shop in this town and was an active, industrious man until old age necessitated the laying aside of tools, the remainder of his life being quietly spent with his family in Columbia. Many years ago he became a Democratic candidate for magistrate, was elected and served his district in that capacity for thirty-eigh- t years. 'In building the present court-house- , he was a member of the Committee appointed by the court to superintend and pass upon the work to see that it was built according to specifications. He was one of the most widely known men in Adair county, and had been a Master Mason for about sixty-tw- o years. He often served ColumLodge, No. 96, as Master, and in bia bis younger days frequently visited sister lodges, assisting in the work. Many years ago he made a profession of his faith in Christ, united with the Methodist Church, and lived until the end came. He was the oldest native citizen of Columbia, his whole life having been spent in the town with the exception of a few months in Mexico, and he died in fifty yards of where he was born. He was three times married, there being three sets of children, eight in all, one of whom being dead. His last wife, living, The funeral services were held in the Methodist church Monday morning at 10 o'clock, conducted by the pastor, Rev. J. S. Chandler, assisted by Rev. O. P.

A very refreshing'and a most profitable institute was held at Campbells-vill- e last week, lasting four or five days. --It was conducted in the Baptist church by the pastor, who was assisted by some of the ablest ministers in the State, and several who live in other States. Our own, Geo. W. was in attendance, and on Per-ryma- n, Tuesday afternoon he delivered his lecture, "That Boy." It was highly appreciated by a crowded house, and when the speaker concluded words of praise came from all those who heard it. Rev. Perryman is now pastor of the Baptist Church, Winchester, and ranks as one of the able men of the organization in the State. The other ministers present took part in "the exercises and their sermons evinced and 1 learning, each one having a happy way of imparting his thoughts. The song service was inspiring, there being thirty or forty good singers in the choir. Mrs. S. E. Kerr accompanied the organ with a violin. There were several discourses directed to the ungodly and a number of professions were made during the talks ' week. They pictured the' life of the tvoical tramp, his ups and downs on the road, mostly downs. How to avoid a biting dog, unique way of getting a handout, and how to secure apparel, etc. The stories of the Knights kept the audience in an uproar, many to be deltehted with the va rious stories. The boys conceived the idea of giving the play, and managed it throughout. The costumes were hideous, and the faces and hands of the actors indicated that a bath would be conducive to health. The proceeds will go to purchase chairs for their ball. The boys feel grateful for the patronage received.

The greatest of these lessons was never to judge a stranger by his outward appearance. One Saturday afternoon as I walked into a nearby country store, my eyes met those of a stranger some 18 or 20 years my senior whom I afterwards learned to be the Rev. I. M. Grimsley, a noted music teacher, who was on his way home from Tennessee, where he had been teaching. I had often heard of him. He was weary and his clothes had gotten somewhat soiled by the long trip he was making on foot. After viewing him as being a worthless tramp, I did not speak at first, because he and one of my neighbors were engaged in a conversation concerning the prospect of a music school at our school house. I sat down upon a nail keg and waited for a chance to speak and said: "Music is just a short course and any body can learn it in a short while." There, of course, he took me for a "Smart Eleck," and, if he did he didn't miss it far, either. He looked at me for awhile with a look of sympathy and slowly said: "Friend I beg to differ with you." Well, this sounded to me like he thought I didn't know what I was talking about, so I arose with some animation and entered into an argument with him, which he met with readiness, and I soon saw that I had met my superior in the knowledge of music, But I did not acknowledge that to him, but I quit the argument and stood back. He made up the school above referred to and I was a pupil in full, and upon the first night of the school I was there to bring up all of the fine points that were left out. But I soon found, that the of the road and with a hearty laugh said, "I have you now where I want to get a fellow to teach him music, you can't teach a fellow a thing when he thinks he already knows it." We kept Bro. Grimsley three ten day terms and since then I have taken a normal course under his 1 re g a r d Bro. instructions. Grimsley as a high class music teacher, a perfect gentleman. and one of my best friends. I will say to all young people, when you meet a stranger treat him like a gentleman until he proves himself to be otherwise. Yours with best wishes for the year, L. Akin. Good for you, brother Akin.

This is a disease that is very wide spread, but is considered not very dangerous to life. A mistaken idea about it is that everybody, sooner or later, must have measles. It is a very contagious malady, more so I suppose than any other. Epidemics of it come through the country very frequently, and claim for its subjects nearly the whole pop. ulation, everybody that has not been rendered immune by a previous attack. It spares neither race or color, or previous condition of servitude. It is considered a disease of childhood, but it is because nearly all but the young have been rendered immune by a previous attack. Not many people die from measles directly, but it lays the foundation for many serious complaints, and especially consumption. It is accompanied by a cough, but the main feature of it is an eruption, so marked that nobody is deceived by it after the eruption makes its appearance. I shall undertake to give neither symptoms nor treatment, because my business is prevention, and if that is a success, neither symptoms or treatment concerns anybody. This disease is so wide spread that it is almost always in some parts of this county, and schools are frequently suspended on account of it. Until recently the communities generally have not undertaken to stop or control it, and even health officers have been in clined to let run its course, but that plan is changed flow, as far as this county is concerned. If smallpox breaks out in any part of the county, the wires are kept hot with telephone messages, calling for the health officer to come immediately and quarantine the suspects, Hag the house, and the whole neighborhood is in confusion on account of it, and if a case of measles breaks out, in any community of the county, nothing is said about it. And yet last year in the State of Ken tucky over 300 children died from measles, and only two all told from smallpox. Last year I undertook to keep children with measles, out of the "From Molten Steel to Automobile" Produced and presented by the Maxwell Motor Company. Every picture of thrilling interest.

When measles stand handsomely out, The patient is safest, they say, And the sorrow is lightest no doubt, That works in a similar way." We all know that smallpox when it breaks out but little, is the lightest case, and from an expepience of many years and thousands of cases, I have come to the same conclusion respecting measles. It used uo be common to dose the patient with gallons of hot tea, made of all kinds of "yerbs," in order to make eruption come boldly out to the surface, but that is all wrong. I have had some rich experi ence in my career as a physician, one of which I will relate: I was called one night to see a boy, Pig Eumstay by name. The father told me when he came, that his boy was chilling, and it seemed impossible to get him warm. I went with prof haste, and found a remarkable case when I arrived The father, an old Dutchman, was greatly distressed, and said he believed "Piggie" would die "agin, already, still." The bed was sitting in one corner of the room, with a bed quilt hanging from the ceiling to the floor on three sides of it. In stove within two front was a red-hfeet, on the stove was a kettle of filled with all manner of "yerbs to make yerb tea." The boy had a feather bed under him, one and nearly dozen blankets and quilts over him. He was sweating profusely, and was wringing wet. He was cold and the family with all they could do was not able to get him warm. When I had him taken out from under all that "kiver" as they called it, the fire in the stove put out, the tea dashed out at the window, the boy rubbed off freely with dry clothes, the father, the mother, and all the galls thought I had killed him. But I had not. Piggie was up the next morning, and made a rapid recovery. A patient with measles should be kept cool, but not at the expense of all the water in his blood, and in his system generally. Parents always want to know how long after exposure to measles will the disease make its appearance.- We never can tel, and doctors had better not try., If you tell thm nine days, and the eruption does not .corn at Lexington Prince. , a' rWiJlfl?ll'7'i lalaVwotorl i'W iu vja?1 !

While I do not propose to treat anybody with measles, it is, I think my business to remove from the minds of the people some erroneous notions about its cause and treatment. It is almost a universal belief that measles ought to breakout thick all over the patient in order to having any show for its life. And the great poet, John G. Saxe, fell into this error when describing the fashionable mourner. "I saw her last night at the party, And looking remakably hearty, For a widow so young in her weeds. He then goes on and tells of her black veil, her black bonnet, her black dress, her black gloves and her black fan." In speaking of her black fan he says: "Then there was the fan in its play, Had quite a lugubrious scope, And seemed to be driving away, The ghost of the angel of hope." He winds up his poem by saying: "Ah, well it is idle to quarrel With fashion, or aught she may do, And so with.a moral, And metaphor warranted new. make the present season at the stable of John Leet, in Campbellsville, and be permitted to serve mares at the low sum of $10.00 to insure a living colt.

Or if you say four or five days, it must come then, or the doctor will lose credit. If you miss the time, the people will conclude that the doctor does not know, and that is about the size of it. They will want to know when the patient is well, and can, with safety-- be set at liberty. As long as there is any scale-frothe eruption at all, the smallest possible to see, the quarantine should be continued. The def ire of the child should not be considered in the matter. Better keep him a week to long, than turn him loose an hour too soon. 'a?1 THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS Ozark. Big Elm.

Miss Alice Conover, er law-abiding the Earth, Which Was Born Out a Mass of Flaming Gases, Came to Have Its Surface Covered With a Liquid Which Cannot Endure Fire. The story of the origin of water involves that of the birth of the earth. According to the generally accepted hypothesis, the earth was once a mass of heated gases, which included, In one form or another, every chemical element that we know. Among these gases were oxygen and hydrogen, the 2wo elements by whose combination water is formed. But there was no water then because the heat was too great to permit of the combination of pxygen and hydrogen. The elements of water were present, but not water itself. As the gaseoiib mass continued to cool a Adair County News One Year Each temperature 'was reached at which combination could begin to take place, and then water appeared in the form, not of liquid, but of an invisible vapor which we call watery vapor. Although oxygen and hydrogen had combined in this vapory the heat was still too great for it to condense into' the liquid state. With further cooling, however, it did undergo a partial condensation into that form of water which we know as steam. At that time the globe was probably a great white hot ball, enveloped at a vast height above its surface with a hissing shell or envelope of steam. In this immense steamy shell was contained, in the vaporous form, all the water that the future earth was to possess. The oceans were there, afloat as scalding clouds!

Birdseve view ot our Plant The central mass continued to cool and condense, and at last when the temperature of the rocky crust that had begun to form about it had descended to about 370 degrees C, the first true water that is. liquid water-appea- red on the earth. It fell in hot drops from the vaporous envelope and at first no doubt was instantly reconverted into steam by contact with the heated crust After awhile the crust became so cool that the descending water could remain upon it in the liquid state. Then the mighty rains fell thicker and faster from the condensing envelope until the accumulated water formed great oceans or perhaps at the beginning one universal ocean surrounding the entire earth. That would depend upon the form of the surface of the crust at the time when the descent of the waters occurred. The origin of the present ocean basins goes back to the very 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 that water came from. It is believed that the oceans cannot continue to exist for all time as we see them today. The minerals constituting the solid crust of the earth are continually absorbing water. It has been calculated that granite contains two gallons of 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 bo a slow one, and no considerable quantity of the oceanic waters-cabe 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.
