FUNERALAND INTERMENT AT COLUMBIA The people of Cave City were horrilast Saturday afternoon when the news spread over the city that Mrs Eliza Willis had been burned to death at her home in that place. The deceased had been in poor health for some time, bub when the accident occurred she was sitting in front of tiie grate in her room, eating dinner, the rest of the family being in the dining room. Suddenly there was a scream and by the time the inmates of the home reached her she was burned to a crisp, living only a very few minutes after being placed upon her bed. The deceased was the widow of E C. Willis, and a number of the years of her life were spent in Columbia, her husband being a merchant, doing business on the corner now occupied by the Jeffries Hardware store. She was a daughter of W. J. and Angeline Rice, and was born in Adair county, and at the time of her death years, nine vshe Avas Sixty-thre- e months and six days old. When quite a young woman she embraced the religion of her Savior united with the Christian Church, and lived consistently until the final dissolution. The remains reached Columbia Monday morning about 3 o'clock, and up to 2 o'clock in the afternoon many friends called at the hotel to take the last view of a departed friend. The deceased is survived by two sons, Mr. E. T. Willis and Mr. M. O. Willis, both of whom came with the remains to this place. At 2 o'clock the funeral was preached by Eld. J. Q. Montgomery, at the Christian Church, the building being full of sympathizing relatives and friends.

Murphy, who read a selection beauti fully which was highly appreciated. Mrs Geo E. Wilson, who is the Worthy Matron, then read from reports the progrees of the order in Kentucky and elsewhere.

William"?, the entire party left for the home of the groom's father, where a reception was held. On January 17th to 20th, inclusive, there will be held at Bowling Green, Ky., the County Road Engineers' Convention. It is the first time that such a meeting has ever been held in Western Kentucky and all county officials and the State Department are endeavoring to make thefmeeting bhe largesbof ibsilnd ever held in Ken-- . tucky At all previous meetings of this character, the theory of road building has been mostly discussed, but, after two years work under the state aid plan, road men throughout the state now have practical problems to discuss and the program has been arranged with that end in view. It has been recommended by the State Office that every County Judge bring his entire court bo the meeting and bhab the counby pay bhe expenses-incurreby such atrip. It is a known fact that travel broadens a man, and it is believed by all concerned that it will be a great help to the various counties throughout the State to attend such a meeting where they can learn what other counties are doing and will have an opportunity to inspect the excellent roads in Warren and adjacent counties, as well as the Kentucky Bock Asphalt fields about which so much has been written in recent days Other States in the union have several road meceings a year and they are attended by between two and three thousand people and in no state in the union are people more alive to the road" movement than in Kentucky, and there is no reason why the meeb-io- g at Bowling Green should not be attended by at least three thousand people. Efforts are now being made to induce the railroads throughout the State to give reduced rates and it is believed that such will be lone. The meeting is held at a time of the year when no road work is being done and no working time will be lost by those interested in road building, and it is earnestly hoped that all county officials, all contractors and all citizens interested in road building will make a special effort to attend the meeting. d A communication from the above named city informs us that Miss Mary Snow Patterson, formerly of Jamestown, Ky., was married to Mr. Elmer Harris, who is a prominent business man of Altus, last week The bride is a daughter of the late J. B Patterson, who was a merchant and hotel keeper at Jamestown for many years Her mother, Mrs. 'Belle Patterson, took up her residence in Oklahoma about seven years ago. The bride Is a charming young lady, who has many friends in Kentucky, all of whom will be glad to learn that she has been wedded to a very excellent gentleman, one who is letting the community wKere he was born and reared, know that he is living in it, being full of business and exceedingly popular with all with whom he comes in contact He is of that character of man to make a' true husband, and, as we have known the bride from her in fancy, we are satisfied that she will be a helpmate, and a loving wife to the end. May Father Time smile upon this union, the couple prospering day by day as they go through life. Will be Absent. I will be out of my office from the 20th to the 27th of this month. Dr, H. W.

First, the precinct unit, then the county unit and now State wide. During all of these fights the Democratic party has 'taken the side of temperance. Fifteen years ago one small State-hous- e was sufficient to house all the officers needed to run the State government. We now have a large and commodious capilol, well filled with officers, clerks, stenographers, and porters and we are told that" the old Statehouse has been and refilled, Fifteen years ago the total cost of the State government was in the neighborhood of jive million dollars, fifty thousands dollars per year. Now it cost about eight million per annum. The temperance question is being agitated and the people are paying the reight. This is the people's gover bhe majoriby has bhe righb to rule. Ib bhab a large per cent of the people want to amend the constitution so as to prohibit bhe manufacbure and sale of spiribuous vinous or malt liquors within the State of Kentucky, or the shipment of such liquors from other States into this State. This Legislative district, composed of Adair and Cumberland counties, is largely Republican. We do nob belong to that parby and do nob assume to advise who ib nominates for the Legislature in the coming August primary, bub we do suggesb to the Democrats that we nominate a good man who favors the submission of the State wide amendment, a man in whom we have confidence, one who can nob be controlled by any self constitub-e- d political aggregation, which is seeking to advance their own political interest at the expence of the public. It we will nominate such a man and the Republicans fail to nominate a man of equal standing the Democrat can, and will be elected. The bime has come when the majoriby of the people will vote for the man who stands four square on moral questions. It is not material to Hie people of this Legislative district why the Louisville Times declared for the submission of this question. We see no reason why its sincerity should be questioned. If the paper helps secure that which the people want why shouldn't it have the same credit that is given obher publications? We believe in the policy, the standard set up in the 7th verse of the 13th chapter of Romans. The people of this Legislative district are not interested in the controversy between the Times, Dr. Palmer or between the liquor interest and the Anti Saloon League. The real question is," shall we submit the State wide amendment, so the people can say whether liquors are to be made, sold or shipped into the State, and when the question is settled retrench and reform, abolish the useless offices and cut the expense, so that the tax rate can be reduced. -- tions Mr. and Mrs. W.
