Keltner, son of Uriah and Alta Keltner, of Adair county, departed this life April the 23rd, 1916, aged 21 years. This sad event brought deep sorrow to a wide circle of friends, and was a crushing shock to his devoted father, brother and sister, his mother having preceded him to the grave some thirteen years ago Nearly two years ago he entered the Lindsej -- Wilson Training School at Columbia, in order, to get an education to aid him in preaching the Gospel, a3 he felt that he was called to preach, and there was no doubt in the minds of all who knew him, and heard his conversation, that God had surely laid His hand on him. For some reason he gave up school, came home, but never failed to cling to the Bible and hold on to God. He took great interest in all kinds of religious services was a good worker and great help in revival meetings, and enjoyed himself many times shouting and praising God for the love he had in his heart. Some tlve weeks ago, for some unknown reason, he secretly joined trie army at Springfield, 111 , and went from there to Jefferson Barracks, Mo., where he took the measles, and that terminated in acute bronchal pneumonia, and resulted in death. It is indeed painful and grievous to us to think that poor Rollin passed away without father, brother or sister uear to say good bye. But we know that God in His wisdom knows best and doeth all things well, so we have no doubt that Rollin is in heaven shouting and praising God as he did here on earth. His funeral was preached by Rev. Joe Furkin and W. C. Christie, a large congregation of relatives and friends being present, to await the arrival of his body, which was neatly attired in a soldiers uniform of brown, placed in a beautiful coffin. After the services his remains were laid to rest in the buaying ground to await the resurrection mcrning. The golden gates were open, A gentle voice said come! And with farewells unspoken Rollin safely entered home." His step Mother. to-da- y he starts withlhe enthusiastic support of a majority of the men who have won Democratic victories in the counties of the district in recent years. Senator Montgomery is already well kmown over the counties of the Eighth district. He has se'rved four years as "State Senator from the counties of Casey, Boyle, Lincoln and Garrard, and those who have examined his record with a critical eye say that it is without a flaw, in that he has always been found voting for fundamental Democratic doctrines, and always with the best interests of the" people and the wishes of his constituents cbn stantly in mind. Senator Montgomery is one of the younger Democratic leaders of the State with whom rests the future of that party. Born in Lincoln county, the son of a beloved Christian minis- J ter, Rev, J. Q. Montgomery, hemoved with his father to Casey county when a child, where he has since made his , home. After graduating from Transylvania University and studying law at Washington and Lee University, he entered upon the practice of Law at Liberty, and has made a signal success in, his profession. He is a splendid Hon. Chas. F Montgomery, of Casey county U a Democratic candidate for Congress to succeed Mr. Helm, from the Eighth district. He is somewhat identified wiih Adair county, his father and mother having both been born and reared near Columbia, and naturally, he has a very tender feeling for Adair, and our people hold him in the highest esteem He has served four years as State Senator from the n district, and was one of the most earnest workers in the Uc-pbranch of the Kentucky Legisla ture. He is a Democrat in whom there is no puMe, a lawyer of ability and a forceful and ready debator. His formal announcement appears 'in The News to day. The Stanford Journal gives Mr. Montgomery the following write up: Hon. Charles F. Montgomery, of Liberty, Case) county, is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Congress, in this, the Eighth district of Kentucky, subject to the primary to be held the first Saturday in August. In making this announcement, Senator Montgomery is responding to the solicitation of prominent Democrats all over the district that he stand for the nomination, as well as a laudable ambition to represent the 11 counties of this splendid district of Kentucky in the halls of congress. His friends say he has been assured of the support of a splendid majority in every county of the district, and that Casey-Lincoler HON. CHAS. F.

A farm hand, who had never driven anything but oxen, took a job as mule driver in a coal mine in Letch'er county. He was ignorant of the ways of mules. Of course, he had seen many of them in action and had been around them more or less, but he had never had any actual experience in driving them, which explains much. All day long the erstwhile husd bandman drove the .big bay mule which hauled coal from the mine's interior to' the tipple. It was a matter of routine to the mule; so no trouble or complications arose until the tyro miner deviated from his usual methods. A trace chain, it seems, had fallen loose and, with his usual anxiety to do his work well and faithfully, the miner essayed to reconnect it. In strident tones he called to the mule to halt. Apparently unaccustomed, however, to the language of the farm, the mule continued on his way. Angered mayhap, at his failure to exact obedience, the miner laid on the last and then abruptly jerked the mule to a stop with the reins. Having done this, without waste of time the driver stopped behind his animal's heels to pick up the chain and then it happened! Pratt, for such was the luckless mine employe's cognomen, sued and recovered a $500 verdict from his employers, who ap pealed. Hark to the words of wisdom from the Appellate bench: "The kicking propensity of a mule is a matter of common lhowledge. The mule would have been untrue to himself and false to every tradition of his breed" had he failed to kick the stooping Pratt. And so Kentucky's mule, which occupies'first rank with the Old Commonwealth's horse, "likker" and tocacco, has been vindicated. victory, in which His clean-cu- t it has been demonstrated that he is a creature of yower and force, proclaims him not to be a wantonly vicious animal. His act in letting fly at the tempting target offered by the including Pratt was only a natural one and not a performance calling for measures of reprisal or revenge The fault lay with the enticing Pratt, who by his very act induced him to exercise his natural prerogative. Louisville Times. raw-bone- -- Must We Come To?It? School for Horses. Horses are educated for the British army by methods which are rather lengthy, but in every way efficient. A horse is first taught to lie down at a given signal. Then he is taught to trot round a field; then to jump hurdles. He is always rewarded for doing well. Gradually he is accustomed to various pieces of harness, until, when the time comes for him to be mounted by a man, instead of plunging about and having to be thrashed into submission, he sees at last what the whole thing is about, and thoroughly enters into the spirit of it. Then he is trained to charge at dummy figures, and he is always coaxed and soothed if frightened and soon learns that the dummies do not harm him; and after that he is taught to knock them over. A course of noises of gradually increasing violence teaches him to keep his head, and and he is finally put to charging figures stuffed with fireworks, so that he will not be afraid of the noise or flashes if ever called upon to charge riflemen. Artillery horses have special "courses" of their own, and transport horses, again, are educated differently. Out of 11,849 men who have sought entrance to the army under the recent call for 20,000 volunteers, but 2,879 have been accepted. What is wrong with American physical standards that so few are fit for military duty? And what is wrong with our system of recruitment that only 2,879 men have been raised in an emergency requiring The answer is that we must come to universal service before getting anything. The Portland Oregonian. Must we come to universal service? Two years ago talk of un iversal military service would have been mocked in America. Today many newspapers, of all shades of political faith, and of all sorts of previously held opinions as to the right way to "adequately prepare" are advocating univeraaLservice. Since the debacle of civilization in Europe the renaissance of the spirit of the Dark Ages, , the immolation of Christianity upon the red altars of Mars, everyone is reforming judgment as to what are our military needs. The dream of lasting peace without a great army and navy to compel it has been dissipated by the camp fires and gun gre in Europe like moisture before the sun.

But now we know that won't do. To do any real good, the 'manure must be broken up into small pieces and spread evenly. The Low Cloverleaf spreader is the one that does 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. See the local dealer who has one set up for you to look at. International Harvester Company of America (Incorporated) Low Cloverleaf spreaders are sold by Business Conditions. Business conditions in this countey are confronted with two problems solutions to which must soon be found. Wjth European demans for manufactured and food products still persistent, the tendency is to overstock, as is evidenced by large purchases of is raw materials. depreaccompanied by gradual ciation of the purchasing power of the dollar. The two problems, therefore, are: What should be the limit of purchase of raw material, and what will stock already purchased be worth in the event of still lower purchasing power of the dollar? These questions are now engaging the attention of financiers. The financial editor of The New York Sun seems to think that the questions will answer He believes that themselves. shortage of material and labor will soon be experienced thereby curtailing purchase, and that when this come the purchasing power of the dollar will naturally increase. Of course, such a change, even though gradual, would have the effect of limiting production and, perhaps, this might occur coincident with decreasing demand for American products. Yet there is another factor in the problem the inflation of credit which is as important as inflation of prices, since forced decreased production even though followed by smaller demand might leave business in such a situation that settlements might end in financial disturbance.

If war comes with Germany it will cost the United States something in the loss of ships by German submarines and a big war debt, but Germany will lose a great deal more It will be a balance of money cast against her which in the end will undoubtedly defeat the Teutonic Powers. There may not be war between the United States and Germapy and we nope it will not come, but if it does it will undoubtedly mean the defeat of Germany. It takes money to carry on a successful war. Germany is now about to the limit of her resources, and with the billions that the United States will throw to the Allies the end will speedily come. In the Civil war the South lost more from the exhaustion of its financial resources to buy food and ammunition, than from bullets, and Germany will lose in the same way. Elizabethtown News.

A refusal upon the German Emperor to change his submarine policy means the severing of diplomatic relations and this will be but a step to open hostilities. In the evenL of war the question is naturally asked, what will be the effect upon the United States? To begin with, there will follow at once a great change in values upon the stock market and a great commercial depression. This, however, will be but of short duration as the commercial interests of the United States will soon adjust themselves to changed conditions. The United States will have friends in Europe, where it has none now. An alliance will be effected between this country and Great Britain, Russia, France, Italy and Japan and it will be an alliance which will be of great benefit to America after the war is over. This country will not be able to send an army to Europe to fight with the Allies, neither will the Germans be able to send an army across the Atlantic to fight the United States. This country will at once seize in American Ports over $100,000,-00- 0 worth of German ships that are now interned in our ports.

Some grades of paper have gone up 100 per cent, in a little more than sixty days, and many grades from 50 to 75 per cent and still going. The newspapers were among the last to feel the effects, but now that the thing has struck them, it has hit them like a cyclone. And the enormous increase in the price of paper is only one item. The Review or Reviews aptly sums up the situation: The newspaper publisher is, indeed, hard hit by war conditions in many other items of supplies besides the basic one of paper stock. Practically everything going into the manufacture of a daily newspaper has increased in price from 10 to 50 per cent ; inks, owing to the advance in the cost of acids and dyes, from 300 to 3,000 per cent, type, owing to the higher cost of lead, tin and antimony; eyen the rubber and felt, blankets wrapped around the press rollers add their quota to the increased "cost of living" of the newspaper. The most serious feature of the whole situation is, however, that there is danger of a paper famine. One of the chief factors in the recent discontinuance of the London Daily Standard, after a career of sixty years, was the higher price of paper stock and the difficulty of obtaining it at News. all in England. m Catarrh and One Result of the War.

Catarrh o f the stomach and kidneys is a most frequent cause of chronic dyspepsia and Brights disease.

If you are not bright, cheerful and refreshed in the mornings, catarrh pr'Obably is the cause. The mental and physical condition of catarrh sufferers is pitiable, but it is surprising how many people suffer from catarrh when they fully believe something else is the cause. Catarrh can be easily detected. Some of its commonest symptoms are: dull, throbbing headaches, watery eyes, constant sniffling, dropping of mucous into the throat at night and awakening choked and half nauseated, sleeplessness, fullhead, dizziness, stopped up nasal passages, dryness of the membranes, pains in the stomach, side and kidney region, faulty digestion,, bad breath and coated tongue.
