There is one proposition that no one will deny, and that is, if we get good roads they must be paiifor. The county is now engaged in an experiment in the matter of roadbuilding. A tax of 25cts. on the one hundred dollars worth of property has been levied, and with the assistance df local and state aid one zoad is to be built. This is far better than doing nothing, but it is also far from being the best way as I think I can prove to any thinking man. In the first place, it will take a term of years to build roads all over the county by the above method, and it will be very unfair to build one or two or three roads and then to stop, which It is universally Statement of the Ownership, Management, Circulation etc., Re- quired by the Act of August Death of John A. Chapman. 24, 1912. Mr. John A. Chapman, who was a prominent merchant of Glenville, this county, died last Thursday afternoon. A few days before the end he met with a stroke of paralysis and rapidly grew worse until death came. He was about fifty-fiv- e years old and was a native of Tennessee, having been brought to Adair county by his parents when he was a small boy. Soon after reaching his majority he engaged in the mercantile business which pursuit he followed until the final dissolution. He also carried on farming and was reosonably successful in life. He was twice married, his last wife surviving him and also several children by his first companion.

This is the average increase in value. If eighty miles of pike should be built in Adair county our real estate according to this estimate would be increased eight hundred thousand, dollars. This would occur possibly within five years after the building of the roads.. In what other way could such an increase in the wealth of the county be accomplished? 9 property and in the comfort and pleasure of life especially county life, where roads are almost impassible during the winter months.

Tanlac, the premier preparation, sold in Columbia, by Page & Taylor, and which is being so widely discussed in this State, is being used today by more than 150,000 Kentuckians, thousands of whom have testified to the benefits they have gained by its use. Every walk of life is represented in the small army of Kentuckians who have been benefitted by Tan'ac and who have testified to its merits as a medicine of rare value. The Taylor-Isaac- s Drug Company. Louisville, has sold more than 30,000 bottles of Tanlacin 90 days. The success of Tanlac in Louisville is typical of the cordial reception the preparation is receiving in large cities and rural districts where it has been introduced. In the last six months the business has grown to enormous proportionsso large, in fact, that it recently became necessary to increase the capacity of the Tanlac plant in Dayton, Ohio, which had been producing from 8,000 to 10,000 bottles of the preparation daily. The unusual, and heretofore, unused formula composing Tanlac is, in a large measure, responsible for the. medicine's popularity and success. The ingredients, which are gathered from many sections of the earth, are of known curative value. One ingredient never "before has been used in a proprietary medicine. This probably "contributes more to the success of Tanlac than any other one thing. Its curative power is conceded to be most effective, and rapid. This ingredient was discovered on an island in the Pacific, west of Mexico. HEALTH OFFICER'S COLUMN.

The health board regulations of Kansas contemplate the inspection of all schools one per year; by a man of good sanitary training. "They shall be disinfected before the opening of school year," says their regulations. The county commissioners constitute the health board of the county. They select a physician of "good san itary ability," as the county health officer. He is competent to score the schoolhouse and premises, and as a matter of economy should then and there disinfect the school house. The latter being of importance only as a climatic act, or finishing touch, to the more important work of getting house and grounds in respectable condition. This would give to the country child an idea of the beautiful and cleanly. It would stimulate to better home conditions. It would increase school attendance. It would change the school work from drudgery to freedom. It would earn the money invested in the county school. The inspection and disinfection of each school can be done for less than 84.

KNOW THY COUNTRY III X Telegraph and Telephone spiring company than the fellowship of the giant intellects that constructed this marvelous industry and a journey along the pathway of its development, illuminated at every mile-poof its progress by the lightning-flashe- s of brilliant minds, will be taken at a very early date. A brief statistical reTiew of the industry brings out its growth and magnitude in a most convincing and manner. The telephone service of the United. States is the most popular and efficient and its rates are the cheapest of the telephone systems of the world. We are the greatest talkers on earth. We send 60 per cent of our communications over the telephone. The world has about 15,000,000 telephones and of this number the United States has approximately 9,540,000, Europe 4,020,000 and other countries 1,300,000. According to the latest world telephone census, the total telephone investment Is $1,900,000,000 and of this amount was credited to the United States, $636,000,000 in Europe and $175,000,000 in other countries. The annual telephone conversations total 24,600,000,000 divided as follows: United States 15,600,000,000; Europe and other countries 2,200,000,-00- 0. The total world wire telephone mileage is 33,262,000 miles divided as follows: United States 20,248,000, Europe 10,335,000, and other countries 2,679,000. About six per cent of the world's population and sixty-on- e per cent of the telephone wire mileage is in the United States. j st Gallons of trouble may come out of a pint flask.

In these days of enterprise it is better to get room on the ground floor than at the top, ocean to ocean and reverberating from the Canadian boundary to the Mexican border. It is the mission of a newpaper to give the news and the action of the Texas Farmers' Union in opposing woman's suffrage when that question was recently before th8 Texas legislature is significant as representing the attitude of the organized plowmen. We reproduce in part the argument presented by Hon. W. D. Lewis, president of the Texas Farmers' Union, in opposing the bill: "It is gratifying to note that it is not the farmer's wife who is clamoring for the ballot She is too busy trying to make happier homes, molding the minds of future citizens and sharing with her husband the cares of life to indulge in political gossip. The ballot will give her no relief from drudgery, give no assistance in clothing the children or bring to the home additional comforts, conveniences or opportunities in life. It is, as a rule, the city woman promoted to idleness by prosperity, who is leading the suffragette movement. "From many standpoints, perhaps a woman lias as much right to vote as a man. So has she as much right to plow as a man; she has as much right to work in a factory as a man; she has as much right to shoulder a musket as a man, but we would rather she would net do so from choice and we regret that necessity ofttimes compels her to earn a living by engaging in gainful occupations. We do not consider misfortune a qualification for suffrage or a business accident a reason for granting franchise. We are opposed to woman at the ballot box the same as we are opposed to woman in the field, in the factory or in the army and for the e reasons. We had rather see her plant flowers than sow wheat; gather bouquets than pick cotton and rear children than raise political issues, although she may have as much right to do one as the other. self-sam- Why should women vote? That is the question that is ringing from panionship, civilization has towered to its greatest heights. In this relationship, God has blessed woman and man has honored her and after four thousand years of progress, she now proposes to provoke God to decoy man by asking for suffrage, thereby by amending an agreement to which she was not a party. Woman, remember that the Israelite scorned a divine covenant, and as a result , wandered forty years in the wilderness without God. Likewise man should remember that it is a dangerous thing to debase woman by law. Rome tried lowering woman's standard and an outraged civilization tore the clothes off the backs df the human race and turned them out to roam in the world naked and God Almighty gave Eve to Adam with the pledge that she would be his helpmeet and with this order of com- DARIUS The neigh of a horse made Darius King of Persia, the six contending powers for the throne agreeing among themselves that the one whose horse should neigh first should possess the kingdom. This ancient method of settling disputes among politicians could be revived with profit today. If our partisan factions and petty politicians could only settle their disputes by the neigh of a horse, the bark of a dog or the bray of a donkey, it would be a great blessing and would give our citizens a better opportunity to pursue the vocations of industry free from political strife. Let those who pick political plums by raising rows and who flash swords dripping in the blood of industry understand that they cannot turn the public forum into a political arena and by a clash of personal aspirations still the hammer and stop the plow and that their quarrels must be settled in the back alleys of civilization. Our transportation facilities are the most perfect product of this great commercial age and the telegraph and telephone systems of this nation crown the industrial achievements of the whole world. These twin messengers of modern civilization, born in the skies, stand today the most faithful and efficient public servants that ever toiled for the human race. They are of American nativity and while warm from the mind of the inventive genius have, under American of wires supervision, spun a earth and under the seas. across the Telegraphy, in its early youth, mastered the known world and the telephone has already conquered the earth's surface, and now stands at the seashore ready to leap across the ocean. No industry in the history of the world has ever made such rapid strides in development and usefulness, and none has ever exerted a more powerful influence upon the civilization of its day than the Telegraph and Telephone. Their achievement demonstrates the supremacy of two distinct types of American genius Invention and organization. The industry was peculiarly fortunate in having powerful inventive intellect at its source and tremendous minds to direct its organization and growth. It is the most perfect fruit of the tree of American industry and when compared with its European contemporaries, it thrills every patriotic American with pride.

E. nt Passenger Rates both the State and the Railway Company testified that the claims of the railroad were sustained by the facts. Two cents did not pay the cost of carrying a passenger a mile. The State, however, contended that the railroad was earning enough surplus on its state freight business to give a fair return upon the capital used in its passenger as well as its freight business. For the purposes of the case, the railroad did not deny this, but held to its contention that the State could not segregate its passenger business for rate fixing without allowing a rate that would be sufficient to pay the cost of doing business and enough to give some return upon the capital invested in doing the business regulated. This was the issue presented to the Supreme Court. Its decision responds to the judgment of the sentiment of the country. The Supreme Court says that, even though, a railroad earns a surplus on a particular commodity by charging reasonable rates, that affords no reason for compelling it to haul another's person or property for less than cost. The surplus from a reasonable rate properly belongs to the railway company. If the surplus is earned from an unreasonable rate then that rate should be reduced. The State may not even up by requiring the railroad to carry other traffic for nothing or for less than cost. The decision is a wholesome one and demonstrates that the ordinary rules of fair dealing apply to railway companies. The fact that one makes a surplus on his wheat crop would never be urged as a reason for compelling him to sell his cotton at less than cost. It would not satisfy the man who wanted bread to be told that its high price enabled the cotton -manufacturer to get his raw product for less than cost. In this case the court reaffirmed the homely maxim that each tub must stand upon its own bottom." -fair-minde- Johnson Opposed to Unsexing Humanity. &9caSt Dyspepsia Tablets "Will Relieve Your Indigestion Paull Drug Co.

It is a favorite argument advanced by the proponents of woman's suffrage that many cultivated and noble women are far more capable of intelligently exercising sovereignty than a worthless negro, but the South never was anxious for negro suffrage, and while culture and refinement, and even morality, are desirable virtues, they are not the only qualifications for franchise. "The primary, Inherent and inseparable fitness for suffrage is supporting a family. The plow handle, the forge and the struggle for bread afford experience necessary to properly mark the ballot. Government is a great big business and civilization from the very beginning assigned "woman the home and man the business affairs of life. "There has been much freakish legislation enacted during the past decade that no doubt appeals to woman's love for the ridiculous, but to undertake to unsex the human race by law is the height of legislative folly and a tragedy to mankind. "We are opposed to the equal rights of woman we want her to ever remain our superior. We consider woman's desire to seek man's level the yellow peril of Twentieth Century civilization. "Woman is the medium through which angels whisper their messages to mankind; it is her hand that plants thoughts in the intellectual vineyard; 'It is through her heart that hope, love and sympathy overflow and bless mankind. Christ the liberator of womankind was satisfied to teach the lessons of life and He was a man. He chose to rule over human hearts and refused worldly power and men followed after Him, women washed His feet, little children climbed upon His knees and the Ruler of the universe said that in Him He was well pleased. Can woman find a higher calling?" A Girl's Influence. The farmers of this nation are vitally interested in railroad rates and equity between passenger and freight rates is especially important to the man who follows the plow for the travels farmer very little but he is a heavy contributor to the freight revenues. states have a tvv;o cent passenger rate and whatever loss is incurred Is recovered through freight revenue. The justice of such a procedure was recently passed upon by the Supreme Court of West Virginia and the decision is so that w,e have asked L. E. Johnson, president of the Norfolk and Western Railway whose road contested the case to briefly review the suit. .Mr. Johnson said in part: "Some ten years ago, passenger fares were fixed by the legislatures of a large number of states at two cents a mile. As a basis for such economic legislation, no examination was made of the cost of doing, the business so regulated, nor was any attention given to the fact whether such a rate would yield to the railway companies an adequate or any net return upon the capital invested in conducting this class of business. "Such a law was passed in West Virginia in 1907. The Norfolk and Western Railway Company put the rate into effect and maintained it for two years. Its accounting during these two years showed that two cents a mile per passenger barely paid the cost and nothing was left to pay any return on capital invested. It sought relief from the courts.
