A thief, in a way that appears' peculiar, got into Nell & Hill's grocery store last Friday night, and the cash drawer and a paper sack containing the show money were tapped. Mr. Nell had put the show money in a paper sack, placing it in a desk where he keeps his bills. The thief got the quarters and halves out of the sack, leaving the dimes and nickels The cash drawer was also robbed in a like manner, the thief leaving about five dollars in pennies. Not a thing in the way of groceries was missed. The thief could not have entered through the basement window, as it was nailed on the inside. Evidently the robber got into the basement from the inside, while the show was in progress, and went out the basement window. No clue. Quick Trip: Messrs. F. X. and John Erd, who live at Lexington, made a quick trip to Columbia Jast Friday. They left Lexington at 6:30 a. m., riding, two on the same motorcycle, and arrived here at 11:15 a. m. They came via Harrodsburg, Perryville, Lebanon and Campbellsville, a distance of fully one hundred miles. John Erd came over to inspect the Moving Picture Machine .he recently installed for Mr. Nell as well as to make arrangements for a hunting trip here this fall. Died in Texas. Soldier's Meeting. '" - Many are inquiring about the rail road proposition and "to be brief and pointed we make the following statement: There seems to be no obstruction except securing the right of way. The committee does not feel justified in entering a contract for unknown quantity and must be convinced of reasonable concessions from the people through whose lands it is built. So far nearly everybody along all the proposed lines are signing the right of way, but the work has not gone far enough to determine the actual condition that may be encountered. By By some mistake an impression is out that the committee had given the money to the promoters of the road that was intended to pay for the rights now sought. That impression Is wrong. No sum of money has ever been agreed on for right of way. The people of this section are to give 0 and right of way. To get the road we will be compelled to do this or lose it. There is no fund levied or collected for such a purpose. The men who have subscribed most for this enterprise are the ones largely who will be compelled to pay the expense ;$Bot'5Ucrrrights if the peopie are un-- " willing to give them It will be the darkest hour for this section that has yet been experienced when this proposition is dropped or the brightest when it is secured. Get busy on both lines and secure as many rights of way as you can. There may be cases where reasonable pay should be made in that event it seems that those interested in that particular road should make up the money and do the right thing. To make a long story short: We are going to build the road and if the people on the Campbellsville line want it and also on the Greensburg line, we say get busy for the line of least resistance is the most pleasant to follow.

I thought if she had only given half a dozen of those kisses a year for the last ten years, how the tenderhearted old gentleman would have smiled through his tears, but now he took it very cooly. He was dead. He was old and poor; she was rich. She had ten rooms but no room for her father. Yet he made room for her when he had only two. The old man was not educated. She was at his expense. He had fed and clothed her for twenty years at home and at college, un til she had risen in more refined and cultured society, and married among new friends. The old people's address and dialect were too coarse. She kissed him and buried him in a beautiful coffin. Dear father is to have a beautiful monument.

The first step is stamping out discs from large sheets of steel. A special machine is used for this purpose, exerting a pressure of 150 tons, for fastening on the regimental crest. Each helmet is cleaned and dipped in a special mixture, which makes it a dull, inconspicuous bluish gray. A lining and leather chin straps are then fastened on, and the helmet is complete. Since the French army has been protected with the helmets the number of deaths due to wounds in the head has decreased to a remarkable extent Sixty-four iz- -- " FEW m DROPS Homemade Philosophy. j Troubles, like babies, we hug to our bosom because they cry.

In fact, the ground on which their charges rest, the thread which binds their theories and the veil that covers their real purposes are weak, brittle and transparent and will not lead many to see a change in administration of affairs.

But a small part of the wort can be done at State Headquarters; the main work must be done by the County Campaign Chairman in each county. It is my intention to open head quarters on August 1st for' active work and the location of headquarters will be publicly announced before that date. Since my election as Campaign Chairman I have done much detail work that was necessary in preparing for the coming struggle. I feel that it is my duty to lay some plain facts before the Democrats of Kentucky. The votes as actually cast for the last twenty years show that Kentucky is a very close State politically. At the outset I wish to warn my Democratic brethren of overconfi-dence- . Our Republican opponents in Ken tucky are already in the field equipped with every influence necessary to wage a hard political battle, and it behooves every Democrat in Kentucky to make himself a campaign committee of one and get to work for the success of his party. I will always appreciate sug gestions from any Democrat in the State and also welcome criticism made for the purpose of giving force and effect to the Democratic cause I wish each Democrat in Kentucky to feel that this fight is as much his as mine, and each Democrat will always be taken into full confidence as to what is being done at headquarters and will always be a welcome visitor there. I know that the State Campaign Committee will have the full support of the Democratic newspapers of the State. This support will be the most powerful factor in the campaign and the State Headquarters will always be at the command of the newspapers in every way within its power.

Roosevelt is to received the Republican nomination for the United State Senate in the Empire State to succeed O'Gorman. This is doubtless being held out as bait for the Colonel to secure not only his hearty endorsement, but his services on the stump for Justice Hughes this fall. Of course, he would be the candidate of the party, which, according to his own testimony, came to a "shameful end" in 1012, but a little thing like that doesn't feaze the man from Oyster Bay. Then, he would run on the ticket with a "Baptist hypocrit," such as he characterized Hughe3, but what does that amount to when six years in the Senate are in sight? Too, there would be the degrading association in the Senate with "second-stor- y men" like Crane and Penrose and Reed Smoot, but the Colonel's refining isfluence might convert them from bosses into leaders. Altogether it is an interesting prospect, and the consumption of the deal seems not to be the least important part of the trade and barter by which the Progressives were sold out at Chicago this monch, and their political Moses forsook them for the company of the sinners and the publicans.

If the experience of war ridden Europe will eventually establish real peace, the price of war will not have been too great. smaller planes of life each ' individual haB some costly experience, y!only to learn some great object lesson. Disease often wastes years of some """people's lives. They suffer years of ''agony and torture, only to be relieved 'by some remedy or treatment. Although they have paid dearly to secure this information, if they can relieve the sufferings of their fellows, their 'experience has not been in vain. These facts are being demonstrated every day. On one side we hear of a woman who, after suffering untold agonies from stomach trouble for fifteen years, is relieved by Tanlac, the new reconstructive, while from another source a prominent merchant testifies that after spending hundreds of dollars for medicines to relieve a severe case of chronic catarrh, he was benefitted immediately by Tanlac. They have paid dearly to accomplish that object. Others who hear of their experiences, and how they gained relief, will profit, however. Thousands of men and women in all walks of life are daily acknowledging the benefits they have derived from Tanlac in cases of catarrhal affections of the mucous membranes, stomach, liver and kidney troubles. They feel that they should come forward publicly and tell their experiences with the spirit of helping some unfortunate who suffers as they did. Tanlac has been found ideal in com bating that tired, listless feeling that is only the forerunner of more serious complications. As a general 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 great reconstructive tonic, is being especially introduced in Columbia, at the Page & Hamilton drug store, where the Tanlac Man explains its merits and the results that may be expected from its use, T.

The fighting around Estress, it is added, has come to a standstill. French troops made an attack along a narrow front in the Aisne district south of northwest of Rheims, the official statement says. The attack was not successful and cost the French serious losses. Concerning the situation on the eastern front the official German statement says that after repeated Russian attacks on positions held by troops of Gen. von Bothmer along one sector of the front in Galicia had been repulsed, the Teutonic lines were partly transferred to a neighboring sector.
