One of the most lamentable deaths occurred in Columbia for many years was the passing of Dr. B, F. Taylor, last Wednesday morning at 10:45. The intelligence of his demise spread a gloom over the entire community, and it was hard to realize that the man who was apparently in his usual health, walking about town, twenty four hours before, had gone to meet his reward. The immediate cause of his death was an accident. He had gone out auto riding with his daughter-in-laMrs. James Taylor, and niece, Miss Lenna Thompson, Mr. Alvin Lewis being the chauffeur. On the Campbells ville pike, four miles out of town, and while Mrs. Taylor was receiving instructions in managing the machine, and while crossing an open bridge, the car became unmanageable and dropped over the structure, a distance of ten feet. The doctor was seriously that have hurt, but at the time it was not thought that his injuries would . prove fatal; and as quickly as possible he was conveyed to his residence in this place. Physicians were with him the remainder of the day and through the night, doing all they could to locate the trouble and bring about relief. Wednesday morning about 9 o'clock the patient realized that he could not live, and so stated to his family. From that hour he began sinking, the end coming at 10:45.

At seventeen years of age he commenced the study of medicine under his uncle, Dr. TJ. L. Taylor, in this place, and after reading a year he en teredthe Louisville University, ajid in due course of time he graduated from the institution, and located at East Fork, Metcalfe county, where he soon built up a large and luciative practice, and when he removed from that place to Columbia he was per haps one 01 the best known men in Metcalfe county. He was a second son of George M, and Mary J. McCIaiu Taylor, who preceded him. to. the grave many years ago, ..The deceased was not only a sue cessful physician, but a fine business man, accumulating a considerable es tained a great loss, but the entire town and the county of Adair. tate. He was an enterprising man a to every move looking to the interest of Columbia. He was also a very kina man, ana was ever ready tc help the unfortunate. His wife was Miss Mattie Pendleton, to whom he was married at East Fork when the deceased was twenty years old. One son, Dr. James Taylor, was born unto them no other children. The father, mother and son "were very devoted, and were never separated only when the physicians were out in their practice, hence the death of the father is heart rending to the wife and only child. No child could have fonder parents than the Asvotion manifested by Dr. Taylor and kif companion for their daughter- - in-law, Mis. James Taj tor, a&d she too' bH sustained an irreparable loss.

What is probably the most elaborate study of wages ever made in any industry has just been completed by the National Conference Committee of the railways. For six months railway accountants throughout the country have been engaged In collecting the payroll records to show the actual wage payments to every individual employe among the 300,000 engineers, conductors, firemen and brakemen now voting on a national strike for a new wage scale. That these employes are one of the highest paid groups of workers in any industry is disclosed by the summary made public today by- the railroad managers.. The average yearly wage payments to all Southern train employes (including those who worked only part of the year), as shown by the 1915 payrolls, were: - Columbia, Ky. BES PHONE 38.

Stated in another way, the chance of an engineman or trainman remaining on duty beyond this prescribed limit was reduced to once in five years. The total number of cases of excess service from all causes reported to the commission was only 61,247 during the year ending June 30, 1915, as compared with 137,439 in 1914 and 270,827 In 1913, and with rare exceptions these represented cases recognized as due to unavoidable causes. Statistics on this subject are collected by the Interstate Commerce Commission under the national law. Every time a train is so delayed by a blizzard, washout or other cause that any part of the train crew is on duty longer than sixteen hours the railroad company must report the occurrence to the commission, giving the names of the individual employes concerned and a full statement of the cause for the excess service.

The earliest reference to the Dead Sea are the biblical narrative of Tot and Abraham, who call it the Salt Sea, its waters containing a percentage of salt. The sea having" no outlet this percentage increases with years. It is practically impossible for a human body to sink in the waters of the Dead Sea, owing to this fact. Owing principally to a large propotion of chloride and bromide of magnesia fish cannot live in the waters of the Dead of sea w If Sea, and has led to the story that no bird can fly across the Dead Sea and the-abseoc- the railroads of the country and the unions of train service employes, which was precipitated by the demand of the latter for an increase In wages that would amount to $100,000,000 a year, the United States Chamber of Commerce recently submitted the matter to a vote of all its members. They were asked to express their opinion as to whether the dispute should be allowed to take its course with the possibility of a great strike that would tie up all the transportation lines throughout the country and paralyze all business, or whether they would favor the adoption to a joint resolution by the two branches of congress directing the Interstate Commerce Commission to investigate and pass upon the matter. The vote received was a very large one and represented business organizations in every part of the countryThe result was overwhelmingly In favor of placing the matter in the hands of the Interstate Commerce Commission, 9S49 votes being cast in favor of this course and only 284 against it. The result showed clearly that the business Interests of the country are unalterably against permitting the transportation lines to be tied up by a national railroad, strike that would paralyze the commerce of the country and inflict enormous losses on all classes of citizens. Chairman "Wheeler of the Committee in charge of the matter for the Chamber of Commerce appeared before the representatives of the railroads and their employes at their conference in New York In June. He announced the result of the Com mittee's inquiry among the business men of the country and urged both parties to the dispute to get together and adopt the course suggested. As a result the committee of managers representing the railroads submitted a proposal that the whole subject be placed before the Interstate Commerce Commission as requested by the representatives of the business interests. As an alternative they offered to submit the demands to arbitration under the Federal law. Both offers were refused by the union leaders, who announced that they would go back to their unions and get authority to declare a strike. This they have since been doing. Meanwhile a resolution has been introduced in Congress directing the Interstate Commerce Commission to make an Investigation of railroad wages. This resolution is now awaiting action. It Is believed here that if nothing further is done by Congress or by the parties to the wage dispute to bring about a peaceful settlement the business Interests of the country, through the United States Chamber of Commerce, or some other organization, will appeal to the Government to take some direct and decisive action to prevent the destruction of national prosperity by a strike on all the railroad lines.
