Each part was skillfully handled by the characters; splendid training and great talent being shown throughout. Herbert Popplewell, as leading man, played so well his role that the members of the audience fully decided that they, as well as he, were having the "time of their lives." Miss SallieE. Murphy as "Dorothy," the leading man's fiance, was charming. Miss Agnes Hynes as "Mrs. Gray." played without an error a long and very difficult part. Mr. Tye Faulkner as Mr. Gray, was also at his best. Miss Ruth Hynes as Mrs. Wycomb, was indeed a "personage" and Mr. Howard Garner as Mr. Wycomb was the "pes simist" that kept the audience laugh ing each time he described some new ailment.

Pan-Americ- an For the first time in history a conference has been called for the purpose of considering matters distinctively and specifically related to child welfare in the countries of the Western Hemisphere. It is to be known as the First can Child's Congress, and is to be held during the month of July in Buenos Aires, Argentina. By this it is not meant that this is the first attempt to hold Pan-Ame- ri an international congress for child welfare. Such congresses have been heretofore held in the United States, the scope of which was intended to be international. In March, 1908, a congress was held in Washington, which called Uself "The First International Congress in America for the Welfare of the Chiid." It was held under the auspices of the National Congress of Mothers, and invitations t o participate were sent to practically every civilized country. This congress was followed by a second in 1911 and a third in 1914, and the National Congress of Mothers in each instance stressed the international character of these meetings. In reality, however, foreign governments failed to sup port these congresses by sending official delegates, although several countries were unofficially rep resented and varous others sent greetings and messages. The congress to be held in Buenos Aires, therefore, may justly claim to be the first Pan-Ame- ri can Child's Congress. fort State Journal.

SUBSCRIPTION Post-offi- as second PRICE $1.00 PER YEAR WED. APR. 26, 1916 The advance in the price of paper has reached a point that is uncomfortable. Our last ton of news cost $30.00 more than we have been paying and since a ton only lasts a few weeks the increased cost is not light. All grades of paper have made similar advances. So it will be necessary for a slight increase in the cost of job work .and likely an advance in the subscription price of The News may have to be made unless cheaper paper can be secured. At any rate we are standing on the old price of a dollar per year and 6very one who owes as much as a dollar is urged to call and settle for we can't run without 'cash. and on the line beCampbellsville and Columtween bia a similar feeling exists. Pre liminary surveys will be made to ascertain the best location, and at that time, the people through whose property the road will run will be asked to give Certainly the road will be built on the line of least resistance, and we do not know where that is, nor does any one else know it at this time. Tnat more money is necessary is Known to us all, and if the people between Columbia and the two towns above mentioned, who would be directly benefited by its passing through this section, will take up the proposition of furnishing the missing link, it would undoubtedly be to their interest and would lighten the burden of many who are far from close touch with it. right-of-way. al Interest in securing a railroad for Columbia manifested itself in no uncertain tones last Saturday at the meeting in the courthouse, and about $42,000.00 was pledged for this purpose. So confident that the full $50,000.00 will be secured, or a sufficient amount to meet requirements, the Columbia Railroad Company was organized, and within a few days will be in position to legally transact business. The article of incorporation was signed by the and a board of nine directors were elected as follows: W. W. Jones, J. N. Coffey, E. H. Hughes, Braxton Massie, R. F. Paull, J. O. Russell, Gordon Montgomery, N. M. Tutt and C. S. Harris. In a meeting of the directors W. W. Joaes was elected President, N. M. Tutt, Vice President, C. S. Harris, Secretary, E. H. Hughes and John W. Flowers, Treasurers. There is scarcely a doubt as to meeting ing requirements imposed "by the promoters of this enterprise, and we look forward to a successful conclusion of the efforts made here in the last two weeks. The people of this county have never felt as certain of getting a road and have never opened the purse as freely and as readily to secure one,- as they have on the present proposition. The fact is, that a desire for development and con venience is broadcast, deep and genuine. Every body is for the road and we mean to build it. If there be doubters, they may now put aside their fears, unless some unforeseen complication or condition appears strong enough to undo what has already been done. At least, the present is bright, and the near future full of hope and confidence. The Directors do not propose to sleep on their job, but to keep the ball rolling all the while. One of the points at issue with many, especially between Columbia and Campbellsville, and between Greensburg and Columbia, is which place will get the connection, and those interested say they will come with the goods .wh,en an opportunity is offered t them. The Milltown people and stock-holde- rs - ed probable that the transports carrying the troops made a wide sweep out into the North Atlantic before heading for the Mediterranean to avoid the submarine danger zone in the vicinity of the British Isles. In this connection it is to be noted that word reached New York today through private cable advices that Russia had closed tne port or Archangel to all except Government traffic. This may indicate that other troop movements from Archangel to the western front are either under way or in contemplation. Several times during the war there have been reports that Russia was sending troops to the Franco-Belgiafront, travelers even declaring that detachments had been seen en route through Scotland and England. No such troops have ever appeared on the western battle line, however.

He simply informed it of the accumulation of facts proving that Germany's assurances to the United States are being violated; that the submarine campaign, despite the earnest protests of the United States, is being conducted with renewed vigor in contravention of all the laws of nations and humanity, and that he means to sever relations unless it is brought within the law Diplomatic history of the world shows that such a course is almost certain to be followed by war. The President's note and his address to Congress are final. They mark the end of diplomatic exchanges. A continuance of the longstanding frienoly relations, the President made clear, depends alone upon Germany's conduct. -- JONES, Hatcher, Ky. in the interest of the proposed railroad from Columbia to Campbellsville.

There is no work on the farm that will pay better for the cost than the spraying of fruit trees. If the fruit trees of Central Kentucky were given the proper attention in pruning and' spraying there is no country which could excel in fruit production. As an example of what can be accomplished along this line we give in substance the experience of Mr. Rhodes B. Thomas', as related to us a few days ago. Mr. Thomas planted a small apple orchard several years ago. The trees grew thirfty, but failed to produce any thing but a few inferior knotty apples. This unsatisfactory result was credited in full to the nursery where he obtained his trees, Three years ago, however, Mr. Thomas began to spray these trees, with the result of transforming his worthless orchard into a valuable asset, the thirty trees producing an abundance of large, faultless fruit, yielding from 200 to 800 bushels each year. He said that he sprayed hi3 orchard twice in a season, the cost of which was but very little. Let the citizens 'of Scott county profit by the experience of Mr. Thomas, by following his example, of properly attending to their fruit trees. Mr. Pickett, our County Agent is a practical orchard man, arid will be glad to give information and instruction to any arid0 all of our citizens who desire to know practical methods of orchard treatment.
