REPORT OF THE CONDITION OF THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK AT COLUMBIA, IN THE STATE OF KENTUCKY, AT THE CLOSE OF BUSINESS SEPT. 12th, 1916. A Valuable Souvenir. Mrs. Geo. W. Gray, of Hamlin, Tex., in sending a Postal Money Order to Dr. J. T. Jones for one of his books, inclosed what .we would term a Villa five dollar bill of beautiful design and well executed, made at Chihuahua, Mexico, numbered 1477614 and few at first sight would detect the difference between it and our U. S currency. Mrs. Gray writes that she is a daughter of Thomas Turner, who was an old friend of mine, and a brother of J. A. Turner, of Montpelier, Ky., and a granddaughter of that grand old man, long since dead, William Elliott, and that she remembers seeing me there when she was quite small. J. T. J. RESOURCES.

He now represents the Cumberland Grocery Company, and his territory is in this part of the State, embracing four or five counties. He makes Columbia about every two weeks, and his face is as familiar here as a native. He has at all times commanded a good trade, the country merchants having the utmost respect for him, relying upon his integrity, and do not hesitate when he presents his price list. Socially Mr. Gilpin is very compaion-able- , every body being his friend. About twelve years ago he was married in Burkesville to Miss Letha Law-.hora daughter of Mr and Mrs. T. J. La whom, and about two years ago their first child was born, a bod, who is idilized by his loving parents. Mr. Gilpin and his competitors are on the most friendly terms, due to the courteous manner in which he solicits. He will probably remain on the road as long as health and activity will permit, and when he retires we trust that he will have in store a snug sum for himself and for those he is most deeply interested.

Heretofore the county's record has been exceptionally poor in the report of deaths, and Mr. Young stated that after his inspection of the county, he would procure warrants for any one found violating the law and vigorous prosecutions would follow. Kentucky's vital statistics law has been in operation since 1912 and nearly every county in the State has been complying with it tc the letter, but the bureau feels that Adair county citizens have been negligent in this matter, and will endeavor to secure of the citizens in genthe eral by publicity and general education in the usefulness of the records mid-wives -- -- sought by the law. 241 070 55 00 00 them in.

B. a candidate for Sheriff of Adair County, PAT-TESO- Candidate Hughes has found an issue at last, of thinks he has, and is working overtime to counteract the effect of the call off of the railroad strike, which is proving so greatly to the advantage of President Wilson and the Democratic party. He calls it a force bill and other ugly name3 and says it does not establish an eight hour day, but that in reality it increases wages. Like the owner and ox who knoweth-hi- s ass his master's crib, Mr. the Hughes is talking for the benefit of the railroads and Wall Street, which believing that a servant is worthy of his hire are putting up millions to elect him; under the impression that the Presidency can be bought. This time at least it will prove the truth of the old adage that a fool and his money is soon parted, with no returns for it. There are ions more railroad workers than there are railroad owners and they intend to pay Mr. Wilson a debt of gratitude that they and all laboring men owe.

The country was never more prosperous or had a better future, made by needed financial laws, farm credits and other valuable constructive legislation passed during the Wilson administra tion. If there is anything in the axiom, "let well enough alone," this is the time to exercise it and reelect Woodrow Wilson for four more years of patriotic service. po&-sib- le Greea River Bottfom Farm The McDowell Fogle Farm on Green River, five miles north of Lib erty, on the Middleburg and Liberty Turnpike, will be offered at Public Sale, on Tuesday, October 17, to the Highest and Best Bidder.

Following the Maine election Wall Street marked up prices of stocks in the glad hope of the election of Mr. Hughes whose triumph would be a victory for reaction, the trusts, high tariffs and all the great financial, interests had formerly controlled the Republican administration. There is no doubt that Mr. Hughes is Wall Street's candidate and that alone ought to make honest people rally to the support of Wilson. FORD ANNOUNCES FOR WILSON. WAR SITUATION 4:42 p. m.)

The members of the tax commission have'been holding meetings with business men, bankers, farmers, corporation heads, lawyers and public officials, and have made diligent efforts to get the viewpoint of every class of persons which has taxes to pay. The commission consists of members of both House and Senate, and the re port which it will make to the Governor will contain the complete drafts of a bili which is expected to revise thoroughly and in detail all of the existing tax laws of the State, and this bill will go before the extra session as ah administration ' measure.

As the affairs of this region are not of interest to you people, I'll say that the ravages of the summer flood is as the sweep of desolation. While cotton is sweet sixteen, the crop is very short, and the price of food crops is tangoing with the stars. Many excellent farmers will not make a bushel of corn, and their land is seriously injured. All that such people can do is to trust God and keep their powder dry. The estimated damage to cromp in this county is $200,000; while the expense of rebuilding bridges, will be $150,000. Our excellent sand clay roads were somewhat injured, but these were built by bond issues, and are to be repaired in same way. The phones were badly injured by wind and electric storms, ie., the lines; but the work of repair and reconstruction goes bravely on. You may say what you please of the poor soil, poverty of .people in this region, but in meeting emergencies they are redoubtable. The extravagance and corruption of Reconstruction shamefully robbed the South, but like the fabled Phenix they rose from the ruins. At one time the poll tax of Cleveland county, North Carolina was seven dollars, and the rapacious carpetbagger preyed like a cormorant on their substance. But men, women and children went to work, and at length the wilderness blossomed, The school master is now abroad, the melody of Christian worship rises from the temples consecrated to the living God, we have statewide prohibition, and the negro is no longer a menace in politics. By this is not meant that the Millennium has dawned, or that the year of Jubilee has come, for here as elsewhere, the trail of the serpent is over them all. But in Fertile regions the thrift, energy and economy that is so evident in North Carolina is not apparent. In some Southern States the 'white man looks upon manual labor as ignoble, and depends "on negroes to cultivate the soil. Here nearly everybody works. The slave oligarchy was responsible for this delusion; and hence the West has outstripped the South in material prosperity. The counties of Scotland and Robeson are the most prosperous in this State, and many college men, with degreesare successful farmers who stay there and work. The political pot is boiling, and democratic success is a foregone conclusion. We are for Wood-roWilson, who was partly educated at Davidson College of North Carolina, and T. W.
