Last Tuesday afternoon at 5:30 o'clock, Mr. Reuben Rucker Conover, calmly and resignedly met his God. The end came at his home, on the Burkesville pike, one mile from the corporate limits of Columbia. He died in the dwelling where he was born and reared, and where he lived eighty-si- x years. When the end came he was surrounded by his wife and his two daughters, Misses Mabel and Ella, his son, Bobert, being in a distant State. Looking Ahead. PAROLED TO ENLIST. forenoon services. In his long career he was known and recognized as one of Adair county's best citizens, and his death has brought sorrow to many homes. According to the Scriptures the death of ySk, godly man is life. It is only the changing of habitation leaving earthly loved ones to live forever in a brighter and happier world. He was the last of one of the first families of Adair county, and nearly all his days were spent upon the farm where he first saw the light of day. His steadfast devotion to a life of unadulterated honesty, at all times reverencing the God who made it possible for him to live comfortable and happy, should be a pricely heritage to the surviving companion and three affectionate children. The funeral services were conducted Wednesday afternoon, Rev. O. P. Bush, of the Baptist Church officiating. Many relatives and friends were present. The interment was in the family burying ground. It had been known for several months that the end was gradually approaching, hence the family was prepared for the final dissolution, knowing that the husband and father was ready for the summons. For more than forty years he was a consistent member of the Columbia Baptist Church, and while in health was a regular attendant at the Sunday It will be a year from the coming Release of August primary until candidates for Maj.

During fifty years of Democratic freedom of the seas and of commerce following Thomas Jefferson, 80 percent., of American commerce on the high seas was carried in American ships. During fifty years of Republican high tariffs and d sea traffic, our merchant marine dwindled until only 8 per cent. , of American commerce was carried in American bottoms. Under the Democratic ship registry act of 1914 both the number of merchantmen carrying the American flag and the percentage of commerce carried in American bottoms have more than doubled. Moreover, under Democratic tariff and shipping laws, the United States in 1916 has become both the leading commercial nation and the leading ship building country of the earth. All this country required, the facts show, was to cut loose from its Republican swaddling clothes. State Journal. hide-boun- n "Whenever it is necessary, for the welfare of the children, to insist that one or more families be quarantined," says the July Woman's Home Companion, "it is astonishing how frequently this is taken as a personal insult by the parents. It seems to be considered as an infringement upon the family rights and not for one moment to be tolerated." This editorial has to do with a widespread evil. It says further: "A. striking instance came to notice recently in a suburban town. For some weeks sporadic cases of diphtheria had been appearing. Every care was taken to find out the source of the trouble but all to no avail. There were carriers at large, and no one knew who was responsible. So it was decided to make a systematic examination of the throats of the school children, and to send cultures of all cases to the laboratory. It was found that twenty-fiv- e per cent of these cultures gave a positive reaction, so, of course, these children were promptly banished, and quarantine ordered by the board of health. The nature of the work and the necessity for these precautions were explained to the parents in every instance; nevertheless, some of these same parents were very angry, and tried various devices to break the quarantine- - One of the mothers threatened a law suit unless her child was promptly taken back to school and the sign put on her house by order of the board of health immediately removed! "Another mother entirely ignored the notice sent to her, and flatly refused to keep her child in the house, though she knew he was not well when she sent him to school. It was several hours after this child had been sent home before the mother could be brought to terms. Meanwhile, to spite the authorities who had perpetrated this outrage upon her family by barring her boy out of school, she sent him over to one of her neighbors to play with the children. Two of these children promptly conand the tracted diphtheria, younger one, scarcely more than a baby, developed a malignant type and died in two days. It would certainly be using a harsh expression to say that the child was murdered, and yet if he had been neatly shot he would have suffered far less."

The famous hymn beginning "God moves in a mysterious way," known as "Cowper's Hymn," had its origin as follows: Cowper was all his life the victim of melancholia and more than once attempted suicide. One day, bent upo.i destroying himself, he got into a cab and ordered the driver to taKe him to a certain point on the river where he intended to drown himself. The cabman, noticing his strange appearance and feeling that all might not be right with him, drove him about the city and finally stopped in front of the poets door. Stepping out and recognizing the old familiar surroundings and shocked at the thought of , his narrow escape, Cowper exclaimed, "God moves in a mysterious way his wonders to perform," and, rushing in, immediately composed the immortal hymn. The Government has recently been advised by a correspondent in California that a variety of wheat is being advertised under the name of "Titantic." The assertion is made that it is a new variety of wheat discovered in England about four years ago, and that a small quantity of seed was brought to the United States by one of the survivors of the Titanic. The wheat is represented as having extremely high yielding power, the returns reaching as high as 7,000-folA photograph sent by this correspondent shows a head identical in appearance with the widely exploited "Alaska" wheat. Five acres of the wheat are said to be growing in the State of Washington, and the seed, it is believed, will be offered at high prices after harvest. The department has no further or more definite information concerning this variety, but farmers and dealers are cautioned to be on their guard concerning this new exploitation. ill-fated d. Why "Swap Horsss?" Columbia, August 224 days. 29 Peucil Thrusts. Frankfort, August The Democratic ticket has been nominated, the platform has been made, and the organization for the campaign soon will be perfected. It is a good ticket? There is nonhing doubtful about it. No one has to guess where Woodrow Wilson stands on any of the great issues now before the American people. The record of his administration has demonstrated his signal ability to direct the affairs of the Nation. He has been confronted by many complex problems, but has met them all with courage and with a high sense of national honor. He has given the country a safe and sane administration.

No benefit is derived frem food which is not thoroughly digested. In the present day hurry and scurry we often eat our meals in too great a haste and fail to properly masticate our food. The rush of modern life doesn't agree with many, and it often results in dyspepsia, probably the most common of maladies. A dyspeptic can easily be distinguished. He becomes listless, then morbid, melancholy and "grouchy" over little things. He loses his appetite, suffers untold agonies from pains in the side or stomach, headaches, after eating, a Jbloated feeling, nausea, restless sleep, nervous and all feeling. After years of study and experiments in an effort to find a remedy to cope with this almost universal malady, Joseph Von Trimbach, the noted chemist and giver of health aids, discovered Tanlac. Tanlac is designed to combat just such conditions. It is proving invaluable against ailments of the stomach, liver, kidneys, and catarrhal affections of the mucous mem branes, which, when neglected, so often affect the vital organs themselves. As a reconstructive tonic for half-sicmen and women it builds up the tissues, creates a keen appetite, promotes digestion, vitalizes the blood and brings back color to the cheeks and sparkle to the eyes. Tanlac, the ideal reconstructive tonic, is being especially Introduced in Columbia, at the Page & Hamilton drugstore, where the Tanlac man explains its merits. & Co., C. H. T. C. Ft.

No losing your temp- In their "tariff publicity," the Republican partisans ignore the enormous increases of exports because these show the unprecedented prosperity of the country. Also, they do not analyze the imports. If they did both, they would discover the increase of imports is wholly due to the fact that the U. S. is drawing upon all parts of the earth to secure the materials from which to manufacture the vast quantities of supplies of all sorts which other nations, both belligerents and neutrals, need at this time. Huge though it be, the domestic supply of many of these raw materials is not adequate to supply the demand, and hence foreign raw materials are being brought in to augment the domestic supply. That such is the situation clear-l- y appears from new statistics on the subject just issued by the Department of Commerce. By reducing or removing entirely the tariffs on many essential raw materials tae Underwood Tariff Act greatly aided American manufacturers in meeting the new foreign demands upon them. Thus millions upon millions of dollars have been drawn into this country in payment of the service rendered by American labor and capital in manufactur ing these imported raw mater ials into articles desperately needed by the outside world. mi rne conclusion ousmess men will draw is obvious: The tariff should not be changed unless conditions change, and then should be readjusted only upon the advice of experts. The latter contingency is provided against by President Wilson's recommendation for the creation of a tariff commission. -- ing it," were the first words spoken since May 11 by David Edwards' who was tried and found guilty of the murder of Willis Combs last week by a Perry county jury and sentenced to life imprisonment. The killing took place May 10.

Mrs. Bet-t- ie Ross was carrying on an upholstering business in Philadelphia, and to her went Washington and the committee. They asked her if she could make a flag according to a pencil drawing made by Gen. Washington. She answered that she was willing to try. The stars in the drawing made by Washington had six points, after the English fashion. Mrs. Ross suggested that stars with five points would be more symmetrical and more pleasing to the eye, and she showed the committee how such a star could be made by folding a piece of paper and making the pattern by a single cut of the shears. Her suggestion was accepted and the flag was finished the next day. From that time to the present the stars on all American flags have been stars, while the stars on the United States coins have six points. five-pointed Will Sloan's Liniment Relieve Pain?

TEDDY PLANS TO GO TO THE WAR Would Raise a Division Service. of 12,- - 000 Men for Mexican New York, June 28-- . Theodore Roosevelt is preparing to offer a division of approximately 12,000 men to the United States government, accompanied by his application for a commission as Major General, in the event of war with Mexico and a call by the President for volunteers, it is learned here from authoritative sources. The division will consist, it is reported, of four brigades instead of three, as prescribed in the army regulations. In the division will be cavalry, infantry, field artillery, aeroplane detachment, engineers, signal corps and the most modern field hospital equipment.
