The farmers are all busy, putting in their crops, Beuce they can not spare the time that it would require to visit the metropolis of their respective counties. The merchants were taking the situation philosophically, knowing that if the farmer failed, all would come up lacking. In a few weeks trade will open with the local merchants, and wltji pleasure they look forward to that time. The Baptist and Christian denominations of Campbellsville are looking forward to two big days in religious circles the dedication of their new church buildings, which will take place this summer. Campbellsville is spreading and it is only a question of short duration when many fertile meadows, in the suburbs of the town, will have to be turned into building lots. While in the latter place we heard two very able sermons, one by Rev. J S. Chandler, of the Methodist Church, the other by Rev. Link, pastor of the Presbyterian Church. In making inquiry we found that Eld. W. G. Montgomery, whcis the pastor of the Christian - Church is very much liked by his people and the citizenship generally. Rev L C. Kelly, who is the pastor, of the Baptist Church, is an energetic, religious worker, and is doing much good for the cause he represents For. courtesies extended, a deligniful auto ride to the water works and points In the city, the writer is indebted to Mr. R J Lyon, who from youth up, has been his steadfast friend. John E. Gowdy was in his usual jovial spirit, and we enjoyed the short time spent in his company. A long time ago, before John, J. O. Russell, W. I. Header were married, the writer accompanied them "to the Ohio river We stopped at the Fif th Avenue Hotel, Louisville, and were assigned a large room containing beds for all John had a lady friend in the city, I think" she was formerly of Taylor county, and he had notified her that he would be in Louisville the evening of our arrival and would call at her home. But we all went to a theater, and John forgot his engagement. Early next morning there was a knock at our door, and it was opened by the writer who received a note directed to Mr. Gowdy. I informed John that I had an epistle for him, and he said, "read it." It was from the young la dy, and she scored him for breaking his engagement, keeping her up until a late hour. There was never a more sorrowful looking man. He dropped his head, and seemed in deep meditation. Gently placing my hand upon his shoulder, he needed consolation, I doing a very good practice, ind he frequently had calls from his old beat, the Miami section. Post Master Montgomery was looking in fine spirits. He said that he was using" no Wood now, that the farmers were Rowing for corn and that Wilson was grinding in the bottom,, but every body would be for Woodrow Wilson in November, that is, a suffloient number for his election. John A. 'Hobson and Fount Pendleton were buying cattle and hogs, John and Clarence Taughan were employing their usual politeness at their old stand.

He was a victim of a cancer, and was about forty-seve- n years old. He was a member of the Baptist Cljurch here until he removed to Louisville, when his membership was transferred to oneof the city churches. His funeral was largely attended, and the interment was in Cave Hill Cemetery Friday. He leaves a wifeand an aged father and a number of relatives in Columbia and several in Taylor county. The deceased had a number of friends in this place, all of whom were sorry to hear of his demise, though they knew he could not live. Those who were near and dear to him should not mourn, as his affliction baffled the skill of physicians, and he " was an intense sufferer. last Thursday, that Notice to Traveling Opticians.

Thursday evening at the .Christian Church the commencement exercises were held. The two orations deliver ed by Mr. Paul Hamilton and Miss Nannie Faulkner were as good as have been heard in Columbia from high school pupils. Dr. Mitchell, vice pres-sdeGeorgetown College, who deliv ered the commencement address, paid the class a very high compliment, in saying the orations were as good as he had heard in Kentucky from high school pupils. Dr. Mitchell's address throughout was splendid. He made many splendid points in showing the value of an education. He inspired all who heard him and he was often interrupted by applause. It would not. be proper to close this article without paying "a compljment to those of our town who assisted at all the commencement exercises in rendering the beautiful music.

He also preached an able sermon Sunday night. For Sale. All the services at the Methodist church last Sunday forenoon, were beautiful. The occasion was a bacca laureate discourse by Dr. A. P. Lyon, of Louisville, tc the graduating class of the Lindsey-Wilso- n Training School, andhls theme was "Following Christ." He pictured the life of oui Savior while upon earth, in tender and touching language, and his advice to the class, now that they were better prepared than ever before, to accomplish something in life, was splendid. No fault said he could be found to the manner of livingof the lowly Nazarine, for when the bright light was turned on His life, the more you turned the brighter it appeared, a star, and he advised the class to follow it. He gave seltishuess a rap, saying that he who lived for himself accomplished but little in this world, and he might have added but little hope nt to hear six young men contest for the medal given yearly by Dr. A P.

A not part of the nation gold certificate is an evidence that the gold is in the treasury and that it will be paid to the holder of the certificate on de mand. The national bank note is by the bank, with the government guaranteeing its payment upon presentation, but the government requiies that the bank must deposit collateral to guarantee payment. This collateral must be bonds of the United States, so there is no chance whatever for the government to lose anything through the national banks. 1 is-au- Hanna'sGreenSd appearance of both cottage and mansion.
