Ridpath, in his history of tht United States, says of it: "Lee, who had opposed the battle, and was not anxious for victory, ordered his line to fall back to a stronger position, bub the troops mistook his order, and began a retreat, the British charging after them. Washington met the fugitives, rallied them, administered a severe rebuke to Lee, and ordered him to the rear," We do not think we read it in any history if not, it has come tq us as a tradition, possibly through this soldier, or some of the others who were present on the occasion, for several of the old pioneers of Adair were in the battle, that the father of our country at the time in the righteoutness of his wrath indulged in expletives very then discharged on-thbanks of the Santee River The next spring he was called oub with his wagon andjieam by the Quarter Master, and hauled from different parts of Halhfax and Pittsylvania counties, provisions to a place called Peytonsburg. He also went from these counties to Goochland and Amherst counties and hauled provisions of the army to Irvine's just below the mouth of Eockfish and James river. The provisions were received there by Richard. Yarbour, Quarter Master. He then went with his wagon and team to Prince Edward Court House, and took a load of pro vision and clothing for the army. He never received one cent for the use of his wagon or team. In September, 1781, he joined Gen Lawson's brigade, and was marched to York, and there remained in camp until the siege commenced, and was in the siege from beginning to end. He then went to Maryland, and assisted to guard the prisoners taken in that State. Hejiad his wagon and team in the service during the whole of this tour, covering about three months. He was placed by CoL Boyed in charge of the magazine at Boyed's landing in Hallifax county, at which point he was eugaged aboub four months. This old soldier was bora in Hallifax county, Virginia, in bhe year 1754. When he came to Kentucky, he settled on' Russell, s creek, Adair county, where he was living wheti he made his declaration. John Hamilton aged 73 years, made application under the acts of 1818 and 1820 He enlisted in 1777 in the county of Baltimore, Maryland, under Capt.

He was appointed orderly sergeant and held this position until he was honorably discharged ab Annapolis, Maryland. John Ross aged 71, applied'for pension under bhe same acts. He served tours in the militia against the Cherokee Indians and British. He then in 1776 enlisted from the county of Bedford, Virginia, in the company com manded by Capt George Lambert, in the 14th Virginia regiment commanded by Col. Charles Lewis, Gen.

EEB. suggest a meeting of the court at f Post-offi- once. r i J The condition of the main roads in this county is such that no man who really desires good roads can escape the importance of securing State Aid and building every mile possible within our power. The fact is that many who opposed building by borrowing the money and issuing bonds certainly cannot, and will not, oppose State Aid to get as many miles as we can of good roads, but regardless of what we need or what we desire in this line, no effort has.beenmade to draw a dollar from the State out of the levy for this year. It Was a hard battle to accomplish this last year, and while only a feeble start has been made, yet we will draw from the State road fund over $4,000 which, added to the county levy and the subscription from the people on the road to be improved, make a little over $13,000 to be put into road building. It is believed that this amount of money will build five or six miles of good road, and this will be accomplished this year, the work to begin as soon as the weather permits. The small amount of cash to be put into construction was not sufficient to bring road builders to our county so the courttook the responsibility of buildr. ing it. This being true the court had to purchase road machinery which must be paid for out of the 1916 levy and amounts to over $4,000. Here it is in a nut shell, so to speak. It is held that the county can not pay for the machinery and have funds necessary to ask and receive State aid for road construction out of this years levy, so accepting this no money can be provided for building this year and our county will pay over $14,000 to the general fund to build roads in other counties. This does not seem good business nor best for the improvement of our roads, and we suggest the following to keep the work moving and to put every dollar possible into our roads as follows: Call the fiscal court to meet early in March and it can handle this situation by applying the subscription from the winning road to pay for the machinery bought, jar at least a good part of it, thus enabling the county to levy for roads and ask and receive State aid. This can be determined by the same method of last year, or if the roads do not desire to accept the terms we feel certain that the bondsmen on the Stan- -pro-ceedure In an opinion given by Judge claims.
