NUMBER WU1HE XIX COLUMBIA, ADAIR COUNTY, 25 Interest Growing. , Work on Manford Road. Notes From the Columbia Lindsey-Wiiso- n Wins. From a Home Boy. Chicago, 111., Apr. 15, 1916. Dear Mr. Harris: The current issue of the News just arrived tells of another opportunity for Adair Countv to get a railroad, and I have wired you that I would be glad to subscribe 850 00 to the required bonus fund, which I am pleased to confirm. I trust most sincerely that the citizens of the county will not let this opportunity pass to procure a railroad for the county. Undoubtedly if the proposition submitted is a practical one and I take it that it is the citizens would make a great mistake should they fail to take advantage of the same. With personal regards, I am Yours very truly, M. A. Traylor.

On Wednesday, April the 5th, Miss Emma Bailey, daughter of Mr. Willis Bailey, of near Columbia, and Mr. S. A. Vest, of Mount Pleasant, Tenn., were married in Nashville. Miss Bailey formerly lived here where she is known and appreciated for her Christian virtues exemplified in a most amiable disposition and high ideals of living.- - Some few years ago she went to Nashville and became a trained nurse' in which calling her services were sought by the wealthier people which resulted in a rapid financial advancement as well as a high appreciation of her skill as a nurse and her accomplishments as a lady. From published reports in the papers of Nashville and Mt. Pleasant, Mr. Vest is a young gentleman who stands high in the esteem of a large cicle of middle Tennesseeans, and a chemist of good report with inklings afloat that he may, later on, serve his district in Congress.

Safety Harbor, April 10, 1916. Adair County News: Editor I came from Clearwater, Fla., to this place on February 1st. This is a little town on the Old Tampa Bay, formerly called Green Springs, Fgrninan-d- o DeSoto, on Sunday morning, May 18, 1539, sailed Into Tampa Bay, which he named Espiritu Santo, in honor of the church festival of that day. The health-givinsprings he discovered and also named Espiritu Santo. Since that day these waters have been to many people as the Fool of Saloam was to the ancients. During the short time I have been here I have seen more people on crutches and canes than in all my past life. Many say they are by this water. It is claimed that it is good for most all diseases, and especially for rheumatism. There has been quite a few tourists here from the Northern States, and are now beginning to leave. I am told that a great many more people spend the summers here than the winters as this is a watering resort. A fine brick Hotel and Bath House have recently been finished. You can get any kind of bath you want. They run in price cents to two dollars from twenty-fiv- e and a half. A magnificent Graded School building is nearing completion, costing g am solicited unanimously by committee, or trustees, as they the are called in Kentucky, to succeed myself as a teacher. On the night of Jan. 15, 1916, we realiz had a verysuccessfulbox-supper- , ing S3S.95 The weather was inclement, the night being cold and sleety. Had conditions been more propitious, several dollars more would have been realized. Another cause of congratulation on my part, was the fact that a boy and girl, each from my school, won second honors in a preliminary contest where thirty competitors were in forensic array. By a strange fatality, our County Commencement, for the last, two years, had bad days for the occasion. Tiast year it snowed, and this year we had a cold, east rain. As a result, the exercises were postponed until the next Saturday. The weather oracles were in the "I Told You So," contingent; for it was "On the New of the Moon." All the preaching, teaching, progress of science cannot eradicate that fool superstition. Every day of my Jife, I am more and more surprised at faith of certain people in the superstition as to influence of the moon in its influence on planting, butchering, and other foolishness. I never believed in such rot, nor yet in the predictions of an almanac. Yet I know preachers and doctors who place the faith that will take no denial in these vagaries of the dark ages; and they are not all in North Carolina, either. I have trave'ed over twelve states of this Union, and find this superstition lurking in all benighted regions. This is of a piece that goes into mawkish sjmpathy over England as our darling "mother country," and has a borrow for heathen and cruel Germany. President Wilson is a great statesman, and I was lor him first, last and all the time as President. But he has unjustly discriminated in favor of England, our worst enemy, and against Germany, our best friend, England has made cotton, that has hitherto made the treaties of the world and bound the nations over to keep the peace, contraband of war. This was unjust to the people of the South, and has wrought untold dis aster to our commercial interest. By . lending the people of England 8500,- jOOO.OOO and furnishing munitions of war where we claimed to be neutral, we have forfeited every claim to neu trality. Germany is the most pro-- i gressive and powerful country on this planet, in point of education, and in every field of human .endeavor. The best universities, best doctors and surgeons, the best chemists, the best farmers and soldiers, the fewesC paupers and vagrants, and the best expo nents of sound minds in sound bodies; are found in Germany. I am, also, against this craze for "Preparedness." W. J Bryan, the greatest living statesman, has enrolled himself among the immortals by his views on this question, as has Claude Kitchin, of North Carolina. In our iproud domain very man is a citizen soldier, and will march forth at the tap of the drum when the emergency requires. We have second navy in the world, and what has England done with her immense navy in this titanic Germany has destroyed conflict? myriads of her battleships with submarines and mines and are cheaper and mote efficacious. With our feet guided by experience and judging the future by the past; what cause have we for alarm?

Doubtless this will be of great value to the town In many respects EJorida is a great State. The climate is delightful. At least it has been so since I have been here. Most of the soil is very poor. Lots of phosphate has to be used on the groves. I have seen but little grass. Folks here say it is hard to get a set of grass. Scarcely anything grows here in the summer season The We sun burns up young vegetation. have had some fresh vegetables all winter, and lots of oranges, grape fruit, tangereens, and the finest strawberries I ever saw.

The Low Cloverleaf spreader is the one that doe this work best. It gives the manure two healthy beatings, one with the regular beater, 'the other with the wide spread disks. When the manure reaches the ground in that condition your soil gets all the good there is in it, and gets it quickly. The Low Cloverleaf is one spreader it will pay you to see before you buy.

Who is likely to give us any trouble for fifty years? Not "Hengland," for she has tried us twice and knows the result. Not Germany; for we are able to cope with her on ea or land. Ite sides, "when this cruel war is over" all engaged will be sufficiently amused. Money is a necessary complement of war,-- and we have nearly as much money as England arid Germany com bined. We, also, have nearly as much money as France and England and France and Germany combined.
