Monday morning at 3 o'clock, at his late home, in Campbelfsville, Horace E. Baker, succumbed to the Inevitable and passed over the river of death. He was afflicted for more than a year, a victim of heart and stomach trouble, and his demise was not a surprise to his children and friends He was a son of Samuel M. and Mary T. Baker and was born, reared and educated in Columbia, leaving here for Campbells-vill- e when he was about twenty-eigh- t years old. A year or two after he became a citizen of Campbellsville he was married to Miss Mary Montague, a daughter of the late Judge It. S Montague, and to this union eight children were born, four sons and four daughters. The children are all living and all were at his bedside when the end came but his two oldest sons who are in the far West. His wife died about three years ago. The deceased was made a Master Mason in this town in his early manhood, and some time after he became a citizen of Campbellsville, he became a Royal Arch Mason. Had he lived until the 10th of next July he would years old. have been sixty-foHe leaves quite a number of relatives on both his father's and mother's side in Columbia and in Adair county, all of whom will be made sad by learning the intelligence of tils passing. The interment was in Brook-sid- e cemetery, beside the grave of his wife, the Masonic fraternity offlciat- ur Reed & Miller to Quit Business. Everything indicates that there will but few changes in the business affairs of Columbia at the beginning of the .New Year, only one business changing hands. The hardware and grocery store which run for many years over the firm name of Heed & Miller will change to Barger & Co., Eld. F. J. Barger, his two sons, Ores and E. B. Barger having purchased the stock and the inyentory will be taken this week. Reed & Miller are first-clas-s business men, and have built up a. large trade throughout the county and their retirement from the commercial affairs of Columbia is generally regretted. Neither Mr. Eeed nor Mr. Miller are in good health and that is the only reason they offer for quitting business. The gentlemen who will take charge are men of character, good business men, who have a general acquaintance over the county, and it is predicted that the store will maintain its high standing, and that the new firm will receive a liberal share of the trade of Adair county. be has-been The Passing Year.

X Trip to California and Other Interest- ing Places. r (continued from " last week?) " . Saw three ladies or women riding hurriedly across the plains as we were nearing the Mexico line. Conditions are pretty much the same, only we were especially attracted to what I call tablelands. There were mountains and recesses and then mountains again. The scenery along the line of this mountain range is certainly something to be admired. We then ran up to Here our party divided. Katie, Jennie and myself got off. The crowd headed for Kentucky. We had a nice and rest here of six hours. We were on the train again waiting for a start to Vaughan, N. M. So we moved on down the line and ran into Belen, and here we changed cars again at 10 o'clock, p. m., and at 4:30 o'clock we were told all off for Vaughan. So we gathered our grips and was off. Here we met Mr. Ernest Jeffries with his auto waiting for us. In a few minutes we were in his home. We were urged to retire and take a needed rest which we did and felt better. Up next morning and had breakfast. Mr. Jeffries came around with his auto and took us out to see the country. Some very beautiful country, indeed. The land is a little inclined to be rolling, while there are some beautiful valleys. The thing most needed in this country is water. Cattle and seep ispked well. After the tour of the ue. To watch this dipping or swimming is sure a show. The Mexicans are lined up - all along the ditch with hooks and forks to keep the sheep going rapidly go. lay-ov- er country we went to what they called a sheep dip. It might be well for me to explain exactly what it is or what it takes to be considered a dip. I call it a plunge and a swiming though. Now I will firsc tell you what they have and then how they have it. They have a ditch or trench seventy-fiv- e to one hundred feet long, five or six feet deep, about two feet wide and almost filled with water as hot as the sheep can bear it. Sulphur and other solutions are put in so that all ticks, lice and other things may be eradicated. Now I will tell how they dip. They have pens well arranged for the businesand at one end of this ditch, if you please, they have a pen running down to it, narrowed down to the space of admitting one sheep at a time, and here a man stands and heads them in just about as fast as you would want to count them and in evidence of this will say, they put through from ten to twelve thousand per day. Mr. Jeffries told me that there was to be two hundred and fifty thousand dipped at this dipping station this year. One thing I failed to tell you. It takes forty Mexicans to de this work. I suppose forty white "men could do the same work if they were there, bat Mexicans are all the along and in the event that the man who pitches them in fails to put them under all over a Mexican with a fork puts him under. Some of the sheep swim hurried ly on while others refuse to go and then it is he is caught with a hook around the neck and hurriedly dragged through. Just night came upon us and here we had to go to town and there we learned that the Sheriff had just come in with a young Mexican who had stolen five horses from a man just outside of the town.' It was no trouble to notice the excitement. There was talk that the Mexicans would try to liberate him from the Sheriff, while on the other hand it was being silently whispered around that he would look up a limb before the rising of another sun. However, he was guarded and kept. Now it was Friday morning, Aug. 20th, and Mr. Jeffries and myself went down to town to hear the trial of the horse thief. He was found guilty, and placed under a two thousand dollar bond all of which he could not give and the Sheriff and guards hurried out of town and on to the county jail. We then took another outing to the country, looked over the lands. Out here two miles from Vaughan, Jennie filed a claim on three hundred and twenty acres of land. Again we were ready to start for Kentucky at tt:00 Saturday morning. Mr. Jeffries and his wife got their auto and took us Good byes over to the station. were said, and we were gone. The first station was Clovas, a very nice little town, then Mexico, Herford, Armarilla, White-fieland other stations. Then into the Panhandle country. Here we saw a quantity of wheat. Much of it was still in the shock. You could see as many as five or six threshing machines running at one sight. You could not help but admire the hustle and get-u- p those people have. We went on down to Miami, Canadian and other places. Here we found a broken and altogether a different country to the Panhandle. We then ran into Wellington, Kans., Kansas City, Independ-ancfthe good part of Kansas. We saw more and better corn than any where else in the West. We also passed though Bellplain after night and other places we could not see. Then we went on St. Louis and- - the nearer we got the more anxious we were as we already had learned e d, ij to-wa- in conversation with a man on the train he said to 'me: "I will show you just down the- - road here where a train rolled off the track yesterday," and so he did. The train had been moved, however, but it was no trouble to tell where it had been. The cause was, the fill had been so soaked with water that when the train came along the track tilted and the train turned over and the sight of this was not expected to So here lessen our anxiety. night came on us with water every where most, especially as far as you could see. The water was standing several feet deep in the low lands. Now all out for St. Louis! Here we had an and then we took hour's a train supposed to go to Louisville, but not settled which way we would go, but after a run of about two hours, we came to a standstill, and after a while we started backward and continued this for some time and finally I went to a man and asked him what all this meant, and he said our track was washed out and we were being snaked backward away up here near Ashley, 111. So we found out later that there had been about three-fourtof a mile of our trackwashed ou sure enough, and so" here I am requested to say this was the cause of the round-abou- t way. And here I will tell you that, we were due in Louisville at 7:35 o'clock a. m.

It meant much to us on account of our other'trips which we proposed to make you remember that this is Monday, August the 23rd, at three o'clock and forty minutes p. m.

I hurry up town, catch a Michigan car for Gladstone Avenue, landed safely, walked up street found daughter and family at supper table. Yes seemed glad to see me, had me come in and sup with them. And now to make a long story short, will say I have been here near a week, have had several nice outings, viewing the city. I must say that Indianapolis is one of the cleanest and nicest cities I havp been in.

This distance was soon run, and the cry came, "all out for Lebanon." Well some of us got off, especially those of us who were headed for and Columbia. Will say just here' that the patience of Job would have been tested as some of you already know they have a mixed train, and whether it was too much mixed or not enough mixed to start, I will never know, but will say it was not long before it drew up on the track, and we thought sure w.e soon would be gone, but here we stood, walked and talked and wondered why the thing did not burst open or take wings and fly, but time gradually wore on, our patience to test. I suppose something happened, they started up the road their best, and after they had gone a short distance, I don't know why, they came to a standstill and some one said, "we are on the Y," so I got impatient just like a fellow will, but we finally got straightened out, and are now headed Camp-bellsville like I would sneeze, and just here don't you know the train begins to blow. Now the conductor came through the train and said, "Campbellsville is the next station, it is just ahead. So I raised up the window And out I began to look It was not long until I saw coming one Mr. Cook. He is Mr. Myers ,'Shoffer" Who runs the mail automobile. I hurried out to meet him You don'D know how good I did feel, And after a few moments spent Straight to the auto I went. Only a few friends did I meet.

State University of Kentucky and graduated from that institution In 190G, receiving the degree of bachelor of engineering, and was given the master's degree In civil engineering in 1908.

In addition to locating the road, Mr. Terrell mapped and opened up a large coal field for the Kentucky River Coal & Coke Co., which was afterwards leased by the Big Hill Coal Co. of Pennsylvania. In June, 1907, after completing the work with the Kentucky River Coal & Coke Co., Mr. Terrell was employed by the Ar- g kansas, Louisiana & Gulf Railway at Hamburg, Arkansas, as assistant engineer on twenty miles of construction, where he remained until its completion In the summer of 1908. ing or soreness and unless checked at are likely to lead to serious trouble.

A report has been received through Athens to the effect that German artillery on Lake Doiran about forty miles northwest of 'Salqniki, has shelled the lines inGreek Macedonia. Observers say this might easily mean that the looked-fo- r advance by the forces of the Central Powers against the allied base at is about to begin. It is thought the Teutons are preparing a huge army for the operations. One correspondent says the Greek Government has decided not to let Teuton forces penetrate into Greek territory unless the Central Powers guar-nnte- e that Greek territory will . not be endangered. A dispatch from Cettinje, Montenegro, states that two aeroplanes, one of which was Ger- -. man, had dropped bombs on Scutari, killing five civillians and. injuring sixteen women and children. The Germans are reported to have established a provisional government at Nish, Serbia, and that proclomations have been issued announcing that the Germans "will respect Serbian nationality. n Pre-mi. In an article denouncing Anglo-French Sa-loni- ki er Asquith's Lloyd-Georg- learship trie LondoruObseryer a.t David e is "the nly possible head of a new national government." The question of efficiency, the paper adds must jbe fettled in the next few weeks. tc The cramping blood vessel muscle and over-fu-ll regain their equal balance through seemingly aimless jumping, and'swinging, and rolling and throwing; through bodily contortions, and incessant posturing through wrestling, and fishing and shooting; through g and and through hammering, and cutting and whittling, through making, toys and unmaking them. But it is love or hate that counts for something; one's hopes and achievement's, one's and undertakings; interests one's games and tricks and mischiefs; teasing and being teased, each has its value in the summing up of life. But here again what invites the play spirit and leaves room for spontaneous interests and undertakings; and takes into account the ebullitions of child instincts in the child; and has due respect for the whims and transient likes and dislikes and his evident relish of his p e r s o n a 1 accomplishments sport; is corand respondingly rich as an instrument of education. Games and plays giveone The child is to be pit-iewhose experience for the first ten years was not chiefly through play He may learn the same lessons, or many of them, in after life through study, but the effect at best is a borrowed one arid comes grudgingly. There is a grace that comes through play, easy, moderate, spontaneous play, that is more sensible and generally available than that of the drawing room. It gives poise and confidence, that along with kindnessare the essence of good behavior. Certain games cultivate the closest attention and self possession; such as most kinds of ball for top-spinning asincards. Of courseit needs only be mentioned that, for younger children, the outdoor games are to be preferred, not alone because they take one into the open air; but also because of the greater freedom of the body, and a corre: Wf kite-flyin- ball-playin- g; time-consumi- ng self-master- y. d sponding sense of freedom of mind. These open air games, and, better still, the plays of childhood, carry with them usually a consciousness of opportunity; room for choice and venture; a chance for experiment and exploration and discovery, that make the boy an adventurer at once. Here is the personal "initiative" beginning to show up n the boy or girl that counts for so much in later years. It is worth encouragement. The child becomes inventive and if thrown upon his own resources with only nature to co operate, And this leads me to say that there is much to fear in a stock of ready-mad- e toys. They are too likely to afford the child simply passive amusement. They exercise no constructive faculty; nor the destructive, which is quite as natural. Most of them lack variety that soon palls upon the child. Most ready made-toy- s are sugar-coatemedicines and diluted lessons the lesson is ruined for a lesson, and the sweetening is so small in amount as to be aggravating. The interest in costly and complicated, toys and pictures, expensive dolls and intricate machines, is transient and artificial. What the player has made himself, or can unmake and construct in different ways, and use in parts or for different purposes, challenge the child's admiration, hence his. resourcefulness..

Some testify they were cured for as little as fifty cents, years ago, and that the trouble never came back on them, while others admit they took several bottle before a steady euro was brought about. The remedy referred to is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It has been tho market for over a quarter of ci a sentury and has been popularized on its merits, by one person telling another. The fact that its strongest supporters are women and elderly people the ones most persistently constipated makes it certain that the claims regarding it as a permanent cure for constipation have cot been exaggerated.

J-- - -- v, PEOPLE ARE ASKING QUESTIONS, Naturally no sane person cares "to jump out of the frying pan into the fire." Sane people always want to know, they are from Missouri and must be shown. Since the matter of taking the State "Superintendent of Public Instruction out of politics and of allowing him to succeed himself, has been widely discussed in the papers of the State, the Bane people are asking themselves and other people questions. Some of them are asking, "If the office is taken out of politics and he is to succeed himself, will he be appointed by a board or will he be elected, and how?" Others are asking, "But if he Is allowed to succeed himself in office mightn't a shrewd fellow get in and stay in for ever and ever?" These questions are the ones which every sane taxpayer and voter in the State should ask himself. Before answering these very pointed questions for the sane people of the State, it should be stated, and stated emphatically, that people everywhere are extremely anxious to get the schools and the whole school system out of politics. The point which bothers the parent and voter is: what is the best method so that definite .will be accomplished? If the legislature "which convenes this" winter should pass favorably on the amendment eliminating the name, "Slate Superintendent of Public Instruction," from the Constitution, it would still have to be voted upon by the people of the 'State at a regular election. After the amendment had been passed both tby the legislature and the people, the manner of selecting or electing a superintendent wouf3 be taken up by the legislature t the State. If the people acting through their representatives in the legislature, still Wjshed to elect the State Superintended it could be done on an "off year" when no State officers-we- re being re-sui- te elected. In other words, it would not then be "possible for him to be swept into office because he happened to be on the "Republican or Democratic ticket. To make the necessity for an election at other than a regular State election clear, it need only be stated that nine out of every ten men who go to the polls, never know even the names of the men who are running for the office of State Superintendent. If anyone doubts the absolute accuracy of this statement, he should ask himself and nine other men the names of the two men for whom the people voted for State Superintendent last November. A second plan for the securing of an efficient man for this most important position would be to have him non-partiBa- V appointed by a strong, School Board. It must, however, be understood thoroughly that such" a board would have to represent the mass of people of the whole State as well as the school men and "women. In either of the above cases, it would always be to the distinct advantage of the State Superintendent to "make good" so that he might continue in office. Under the present system he must hold the office for four years then go back to teaching or he must use his position to, secure for himself some other political office. That the schools, and especially the rural schools, must be gotten out of politics goes "without saying. The people and the legislators are sure to see this in a big, broad, patriotic way and carry the amendment. Afterwards the legislature can surely be trusted to learn what other states are doing with this moBt important office and then decide what is best for the school children of the State. The time is now ripe to act, because the people and the men "who will represent them at Frankfort this winter, will be more than willing to do anything in their power to further the interest of the children who can not help themselves. n War Upon Pain!

Prior to 1840, Kentucky had spent more than $2,000,000 in the construction of macadamized roads which were built on rights of way sixty feet wide. These roads were located on light grades and easy curves, and to thirty feet were graded twenty-fou- r between ditches. Telford foundations" feet between sixteen and twenty-fou- r were used with a good macadam surface. This work was under the supervision of a state engineering department, consisting of a state highway engineer, at a salary of $5,000 per year, with a corps of assistants at salaries ranging from $1,100 to $2,500 per annum. Many of these roads are yet in a splendid state.of preservation, and nre rendering substantial service to the communities through which they pass. However, the policy of internal improvement was discontinued prior to 1850, owing to the financial condition of the treasury, and a change in political parties, and it was not until 1908 that any attempt was made to revive a state system of highways. In 1908 the General Assembly of Kentucky passed a constitutional amendment permitting the state to lend its credit to the counties for and to provide for the construction and maintenance G public highways. A highway department was established to consist of the Commissioner of Public Roads and such assistants as the Governor might deem advisable, with an appropriation of not to exceed $20,000 per annum from the automobile license tax which had been accruing from 1910 as a state road road-building, enroll on or before November 1st.

The duties of the department were purely advisory, and while the counties were required to request plans, specifications and estimates of cost for the road and bridge work, which exceeded $500 in cost, they were not compelled to use the plans and specifications thus prepared. It was not until after the state aid law passed by the General Assembly of 1914 became operative that the state was- really in a position to lend material aid to the counties. Although a great deal was accomplished by the commissioner and his assistants prior to 1910, it was only, aa stated above, advisory, which in many instances it was hard to get the county officials to take advantage of the engineering assistance offered, "but in 1914 the general assembly passed a law levying a five-cetax on each $100 worth of taxable property in the state of Kentucky. The law further provided that the money should be distributed to the counties based upon the amount of money levied and collected in each county for roadbuilding, and that no county should receive in any one year more than two per cent of the total road fund.
