Rev L. C. Kelly, pastor of the Baptist church, Campbellsville, dedicated the new Baptist church, this place, last Sunday. The building was crowded and many could not gain entrance. It goes without saying that all obligations were met before the discourse. Mr. Kelly is a strong preacher, has a very pleasing delivery, captivating the large throng as he told of the great work that is being done by the Baptist in the Russell Creek Association. The people of Columbia and especially the Baptist, are proud of their church building, a magnificent edifice, and they are more than gratified, knowing that all obligations have been met. Dinner was spiead in the hall of the court-housand there was an abundance for every body and, if we mistake not, genuinely enjoyed by the many who participated. In fact it seemed almost a love feast for members of other congregations were not only present to enjoy the dinner under the broad and hearty invitation but were .there with full baskets and their hospitalities were vivid and as each vied with the other, enjoyment was pictured in every feature. e Graded and High Schools Will Leg Broken. Last Saturday, while engaged in a ball game at Ozark, T. I. Smith, Jr., of Cane Valley, son of Mr. Ingram Smith, collided with another player, getting his left leg broken just above the ankle.

Parents should have their children ready for school by that time. The first and second grades will this year be taught in the large room of the school building, known as the chapel. The chapel exercises will be held in the gym. The school board has purchased additional single seats and it. is planned this year that each pupil of the first grade have its own individual seat. The seats already in the gym, together with the folding chairs purchased for use in this building, will make room for all to have seats in the gym during chapel. The work on the gym has been completed, and it is now finished inside and out. The use of the gym for chapel exercises will not interfere with its use for play, as chairs can be removed within a few minutes after chapel exercises. All students of the county, in school age, who have completed the common branches can attend high school Free. Pupils who desire to attend are requested to enter school at the beginning of the term August 30. We urge those who are prepared to attend to enter this year. Next year you will be older, it will make you one year later getting through high school, and then too you will be just where you are now in your school work. Last year was by far the best we have had in the history of the school. We expect this one to be bigger and better. Join the procession boys and girls and lets bring Kentucky to the front rank among the States and Adair county to the front in Kentucky. The Paramount PROGRAM. The following is a program of the School Rally Day to be held in Columbia, Ky., October 8th, 1915: School Parade. Penant to rural school having greatest percentage of scholars and patrons present at the school rally The census of the school district taken as a basis. 3. Penant to the rural school having second highest number present. 1. 2. With good roads in our county, we have, all things considered, one of the best counties to live in, in Kentucky. This is the opportunity of our lives to get good roads, and the State to pay half the cost. Good roads will be worth more to us than a Railroad. The money paid out for building these roads will be paid to our own people, for work, teams, &c We sincerely urge you to vote for the bond issue, believing that it is the best opportunity wa have ever had offered us for the permanent improvement of our county's conditions. . Mery Truly, Adair County Improvement Co. Players. The week of the Fair was very unfavorable for shows. The Fowler shows were unable to do anything on account of the continuous rain. The Dixie Minstrels gave several unique performances, and as they had a complete change of program each day, were able to amuse the same crowds over and over. This show, owned by Mr. Lawrence Russel1, was one of the cleanest minstrels that has ever been in our little town. The Paramount Players, composed of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Russell and little daughter, Mary, all first-clas-s comedians, gave a performance each night at Page's Garage. Each program consisted of three plays, that made the audience laugh from start to finish, and undoubtedly proved to this community that they were far above the average show people. The Russell's evidently have counted the cost of a laugh, for their entertainments were clean from start to finish, highly interesting, and were well patronized. Mr. Russell, at the last show, announced that they would be back some time in November. Mrs. C. M. Russell has purchased Mrs. Summers' interest in the milli Mr. Murray Ball, who was a citizen of this place two years, conducting a Jewelry store and watch repairing establishment, has removed with his family to Edmonton.

This was decided upon Saturday at a joint meeting of the Democratic State Central and Executive Committees held at the Gait House in Louisville. The meeting was presided over by Rufus H. Vansant, of Ashland, Chairman, and was harmonious from start to finish. Just before the meeting adjourned, a resolution naming Judge S. W. Hager, of Owensboro, as Chairman of the Democratic Campaign Committee, with power to appoint Executive and Advisory committees, a secretary and other assistants, and to select head quarters, was adopted unanimously. The text was 11 Cor. 5:17.

Gas would accumulate in my stomach, causing me great pain. These attacks followed one an other in such rapid concession that my entire system became weakened and made me susceptible to coughs and colds. "At one time I feared I was in danger of a complete nervous breakdown. In fact, I was told that the breakdown was inevitable. I had a tired, worn-ou- t feeling, my sleep was fitful, I was lacking in energy, and had no appetite. I was depressed in spirits and devoid of ambition. "I suffered for two years, the stomach trouble refusing to yield to the treatment of the best physicians in Louisville. My nerves were shattered. I felt as though my case was hopeless. "Since using Tanlac, I feel like a different man.

Autopsies on people have shown that hardly a single human beine reaches ' mature life without a scar on his lungs or elsewhere showing where tuberculosis had attacked him"7 and he, by his normal resist lance and vitality, had warded off the continuation of the attack. Because tuberculosis is so widespread, every man, woman and .child should give the most careful attention to those signs of the disease which point out danger. The treacherous disease germs may j enter the body in early childhood and may not cause any serious trouble for ten or fifteen years. Then, all of a sudden, when the body is weakened by overwork, worry, sickness, or bad living and working conditions, these sleeping germs wake up and become active in the destructionof the lungs or other organs. The working man or woman, therefore, cannot be too careful in the safeguarding of health and in patching out for those symptoms which indicate that the disease of tuberculosis is actually present. What, then, are some of the danger signals and what should be done about them? (1) First of all, there is a cough that hangs on and will not clear up. If it lasts for a month or longer, it is a red light, a danger signal, which you cannot afford to ignore. It may start with wet feet or some other insignificant circumstance, but no matter how the cough started, if it does not go away, see your doctor at once. Colds .frequently weaken the bodily tone and resistance, so that it is easy for the lurking germs to get a foothold. (2) Loss of weight, accompanied by a loss of appetite, and a certain amount of "stomach trouble" is another danger signal, which you must not pass unheeded. Sometimes loss of weight may come from some other cause than tuberculosis, but it pays to be on your guard. Tou may not have a cough, and you may experience very little trouble except a sort of chronic weariness. You ought to know what your normal weight should be. If you begin to lose five, ten or more pounds without any apparent reason, look for sound medical advice at once. Sometimes with loss of weight goes a loss of appetite, and trouble wth bowels and stomach, even running to diarrhea. "Whether you are losing much weight or not, look out for this danger signal. It is a warning that something is wrong. (3) Then there is that feeling. Most people have days when they feel unusually tired," for some reason or other. Such an occasional period of "spring fever" or "lazy liver" may not be at all dangerous, but when every day for two or three weeks you hate to get up and dread to do anything but lie around and be lazy, there is danger ahead. This is Nature's warning to you that some enemy inside your body is sapping your vitality. Don't ignore the warning signal! (4) Anyone of the three symptoms just mentioned may occur singly or all of them may come at one time. When, to any or all, there is added a fever in the late afternoon or during the night, accompanied possibly by sweats, beware of this danger signal. It is a bright red flag which Nature waves before you, cautioning you to give immediate heed. Anyone's temperature may rise at times, some people's more easily than others. But when for a week every afternoon about four or five o'clock you've felt feverish, or when night after night you wake up in a dripping sweat, you may rest assured that there is nothing normal about that. Go to your doctor at once and tell him about it. You may have no cough and no other sign of disease, and this may be the only warning you'll get. Give heed to it at once. (5)" If you have a cough and in spitting you find streaks of blood in your sputum, you may rest assured that something is wrong. It may not be a direct sign of tuberculosis, but whatever it is, you should attend to it at once. You cannot afford to waste time putting it off. Nature may give you that more emphatic warning of the presence of tuberculosis, a hemorrhage of the lungs. :Ifso, don't be scared unduly. It is a danger signal, and if you heed it, you may be safe. There are other danger signals, some which you can see and some which only a trained physician can detect. Your safety lies in' getting medical attention as early as possible. Tuberculosis can be cured if it is discovered in time. The time to discover it is when the first symptoms show themselves. Don't take chances with Death. You'll lose every time. Go to a good doctor, if you notice any, of these danger signals, 'and insist that he examine you stripped to the waist. If you can't afford a doctor, go to a free clinic and be exaaiined. It may cost a few dollars to be examined, but it may save you hundreds of dollars, untold suffering, and possibly your life and that of your wife and family. "SAFETY FIEST" is a motto that applies to tuberculosis, especially when it is first showing itself. OF F THEJ01TY By What's The Matter With Your Baby? The younjr mother and many an old Dne, too Is often puzzled to know the cause of her child's ill nature. The loudness of its crying dos not necessarily Indicate the seriousness of its .trouble. It may have nothing: more the matter with it than a headache or a feel-ta- g of general dullness. It cannot, of tourse. describe Its feelings, but as a preliminary measure you are safe in crying a mild laxative. Xine times out of ten, you will find it Is all the child needs, for its restlessness and peevishness are perhaps due to obstruction of the bowels, and once that has been remedied the headache, the sluggishness and the many other evidences of constipation and indigestion will quickly disappear. Don't give the little one salts, cathartic pills or nasty waters, for these will act as purgatives, and they are too strong for a child. In the families of Mrs. M. S. Adams, Auburn, Ky., and Mrs. L. M. Eoyce, Tip Top, Ky., the only laxa- - i tlve given Is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It has been found to answer most perfectly I all the purposes of a laxative, and its very mildness and freedom from griping" IN Peter Radford. : run-dow- n, "When you enter the agricultural department of the county fair, you feel your soul uplifted and your life takes on a new power that is the inspiration of the Eoil. You are overpowered by the grandeur and magnificence of the scene that is the spirit of the harvest. You can hear the voice of nature calling you back to the soil that is opportunity knocking at your door. It is a good chance to spend a quiet hour in contact with the purity and perfection of nature and to sweeten your life with its fragrance, elevate your ideals with its beauty and expand your imagination with its power. These products as food are fit for the gods, and as an article of commerce they ought to bring prices on any market in the world. The products of the soil are teachers and preachers as well. Their beauty gives human life its first entertainment, their perfection stirs the genius In artists; their purity furnishes models for growth of character and their marvelous achievements excite "our curiosity and we inquire into the wonderful process of nature. Before leaving the parlor of agriculture where nature is parading in her most graceful attire and science is climbing the giddy heights of perfection, let us pause and take a retrospective view.

EDWARDS AHMOliNCES FOR LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR. - Louisville, Ky., June 2S, 1915. (Special Corresperldecce) Hon. Jamas P. Edwards, of Jefferson County, one of lite inoet prominent lawyers in the Mate, has announced his candidacy tor the Democratic nomination for lieutenant Governor. His platform is, briefly, better schools, improved pub-ii- e his&wsys, economy in state affairs, bboiiahment of unnecessary expensive offices, revision of tar laws bo as io relieve overtaxed properties and taxation of such property as now avoids taxation, favors the prosent County TJnit law of the liquor ra$te as passed by the legislature in compliapce with the Democratic 1911, which is the fundamental law of the party, and opposes titate-(wid- e prohibition as unnecessary as a temperance measure, a menace to "tho overburdened taxpayers, and contrary to both the National and State platforms of the party.

Some years ago, the question was asked: What Is a college? The attempt to answer it shook the educational world in America from center to circumference. Another question i3 now beginning to be asked: What is a church? Without undertaking to give a definition of it, let me ask, in this Initial paper, what the church is for? The New Testament reveals three distinct tasks to which it is committed. First, that of evangelization. The church is divinely commissioned to reach for the lowest and the least man in tiie least land and offer him sonship to the Eternal God; offer him a divine power, which lifts him ont of the bog and places him upon the highest levels of human life, where God and the soul are in fellowship This alone were an immense priv- -' ilege.

The term, Religious Education, has, come to mean a specific thing in our country, namely, the training of the people in the local church in those deep matters which pertain to the art of living. I am not now speaking of ttie work of education in schools, colleges and universities, but the work of education at our doors, In the congregation. Every agency in reach should be employed to the utmost in this important mission. Indeed, the local church could be made a gjrt of university for all the people, in which the simple, practical arts and virtues of everyday life should be taught and enforced. Only recently has this special phase of the church's work received anything like adequate attention. The New Testament word for to teach and train those who are rich with its evangelistic message.

Nothing is foreign to the interest of the church. Peter Radford This nation is now entering upom an era of marine development. The wreckage ot European commerce haa drifted to our shores and the world war is making unprecedented demands for the products of farm and factory. In transportation facilities on land we lead the world but our port facilities are inadequate, and our flag is seldom seen in foreign ports. If our government would only divert the energy we have displayed in conquering the railroads to mastering the commerce of the sea, a foreign bottom would be unknown on the ocean's highways. This article will be confined to- a discussion of our ports for the products of the farm must pass over our wharfs before reaching the water. We have in this nation J1 ports, of which 41 are on the Atlantic and 10 are oil d The the Pacific Coast. Congress appropriated over $51,000,-00- 0 for Improving our Rivers and Harbors and private enterprise leviea a toll of approximately $50,000,000 annually in wharfage and charges for which no tangible service is rendered. The latter item should be lifted off the backs of the farmer of this nation and this can be done by Congress directing its appropriations to ports that are free where vessels can tie up to a wharf and discharge her cargo tree of any fee or charge. A free port 1s progress. It takes out the unnecessary link In the chain of transactions in commerce which has for centuries laid a heavy hand upon commerce. No movement Is so heavily laden with results or will more widely and equally distribute its benefits as that of a free port and none can be more easily and ef fectively secured.

And would sometimes neglect to empty the trap, and would find at the end of two days that thousands of files were dead. And I found, and still find that all the flies in the trap will die in two days. They surely do not die from want of ventilation, for the trap is all the time full of air. And on the other hand, it seems to me, that if all the flies die in two days, we ought to find dead flies scattered all over the face of the earth. The flies are the pests for us to fight, and if every body would engage in it, the whole tribe could soon be driven from the land. The mosquitoes have been almost put out of commission. I have not seen a case of old fashioned "shak-i- n ager," for several years. I am thoroughly convinced that the bed bug is the cause of pellagra It is said by the poet that the bed bug has no wings but he gets there all the same. I have never known one to be behind time. But as we have no pellagra in our county, and as a bed bug has to bite somebody and get himself inoculated, before he can impart the disease to others, and as the bed bug is the most thoroughly hated of anything in all the world, and every body does everything to put him out of business. It is not worth while to waste time of the institute in discussing this pest. The disease, consumption, is the most dangerous of all the diseases that afflict humanity in this country. More people die from it than any other one complaint. There never has been a case of consumption, there is no case of consumption now, and there never will be a case of consumption that has not been brought on by promiscuous spitting. Stop the spitting and you stop consumption. That ought to be easy to do, and would be if the people would believe this. But the people will not believe. It would require another dose of thunder and lightning to convince some people of these truths Since I have been battling with consumption, the death rate has been reduced from 60 to 30 per annum. This has been going on for 15 years, and shows that there are more than 200 people in the county living that would have been dead had it not been for the work of the health board. We do not know who these people are, but we know that they are living among us During the month of July just passed, I visited 54 of the public schools in the county, and found that there had been an increase over last year of 150, which is not near what it ought to have been. I have always been a strong advocate of a compulsory school law, and a rigid enforcement of it, but I will not make any suggestions as to the hows and wherefore to bring it about. I believe Prof. Huffaker will do what is necessary in the matter. In my talks to the schools, I undertake to teach the teachers to use good language, and make no grammatical blunders This is somewhat like the blind leading the blind. I have never studied grammar myself, but I presume it is required by the common school law, and that every one who has a certificate of qualification to teach, is presumbed to know something of grammar. This is rather a violent presumption. Three or four years ago I visited a school in this county. The teacher met theme at door. I asked her if she knew me? Oh! yes, she answered, I knode you as soon as I seed you. In the same year I visited a colored school, and in conversation with him, I said: "Dick, I thought you was going to teach in Metcalfe this year?" He answered: "Yes I did intend to, but about the time I got ready to go my wife she taken sick." I said: "Dick, are you not teaching grammar?" "Yes sir," he answered. "Well, what kind of grammar do you call this? My wife she taken sick." "Oh yes, he answered, tuck, tuck, tusk. I have not had to correct any teacher this year but one, and that was a colored female teacher, and by the way one of the best teachers She had one of the windows of the house repaired, and said it was done when she was not present, and she did not know when they done it. I called the attention to the blunder, and she corrected it with thanks. You teachers whose schools I have not visited, must be on your P's and Q's, for when I come, and you make any blunders, I will speak right out in meeting. But the biggest blunder I have heard for years, came from a candidate for the Kentucky Senate. He lives In another county. I asked him how he thought the race would go in my county? He said: "what betwight he and I? As I am not undertaking te regulate the language of the members of the future legislature, I made no response to him. And now ladies and gentlemen of the Adair county institute, I want to say this: I believe institutes are good things, but I think they ought always to be held before the schools begin. A break of a week in a school will al ways damage the school, and then if there are any new plans or theories suggested tnat. ought to be tried out, they ought to be tried at the beginning of the session. I have Immense ly enjoyed this sessjon, andconsider it one of the best that I have ever attended. As long as I am health officer of the county, I expect to take a lively Interest in the public schools And now I want to thank you for the very patient hearing you have given at-all, to-da- Training to Put Your Children School TERM OPENS SEPT. 6, 1915. 1. 2. 3..
