Distressing Death. Burkesville Loses an Old Citizen. Last Timrsday morning Capt., J. L. Strange, who had been a citizen of Burkesville since the Civil War, cross ed to the other side. He was a native of Adair county,, having been born and reared a few miles South of Glenville. When the war of the South and North Jbroke out, he espoused the cause of the union, raised a company and entered the 37th Kentucky infantry, and for gallant services was offered promobion from time to time, but he refused, having promised his men that he would stay with them to the end. When the war closed he settled at Burkesville. He was appointed a deputy United States Marshal and filled that position for twenty years, and while holding this office he was Instrumental in running down many moonshiners and also breaking up a number of illicit still houses. When he gave up this positiontiaTwas appointed United States Commissioner, with headquarters at Burkesville. The last position he held was CityCtfudge of Burkesville, filling the office very acceptably. Several years ago acancer made its appearance on his face, which gradually grew worse, and which caused his death. He was in his seventy-nintyear, and was one best known men in Cumberland county. He had opinions and he expressed them, but was not disagreeable with those who differed with him. He confessed his Savior some years ago and was ready for his Master's call. He left a wife and a number of children, three of whom live in Columbia J. C , and Elmo Strange, and Mrs. H. W. Depp, all of whom left for Burkeslille immediately after having been notified. Another daughter, Mrs S. W. Beck, lives in Campbellsville, and two other sons, to our knowledge, John, who lives in Western Kentucky, and Ras, who lives in Texas Another daughter, Valley, also lives in Texas. The funeral and interment were in Burkesville Thursday afternoon and were largely attended. The sympathy of Columbia is with the aged companion and ail the children. h of-th- e Railroad Committee Dissolved.

Elzy Wethington, Casey Creek, Ky. ss The committee selected and empowered to contract for the building of a railroad to this town, pledging the right of way and a bonus of $50,000 payable when the road was completed, has faithfully done its duty, and now dissolves itself without securiug any party who is able and willing to enter into a contract to build it. This action is deemed necessary under existing conditions for it is the judgment of every member of the committee that a return of the money or notes to the subscribers of the fund should not longer be delayed when no evidence exists to warrant the committee that it can secure the road. For these reasons the Bank of Columbia, .the First National'Bank, and the Gradyville State Bank of Gradyville, have been directed to return all money and notes to the parties who subscribed. So far as the committee can see it is useless to further follow the phantom of hope in securing the road under the time allotted it. In justice to every member of the committee we are bound to say that an honeat, persistent effort was made to find a party willing and able to enter into contract for the construction of the road under the terms and inducements offered and every man regrets that it could not be done. The committee has not only made an honest effort but it kept the faith with every subscriber and is now having returned every dollar subscribed and releasing every obligation made, meeting the expense it incurred with its own money. We congratulate the people of this county in their effort to secure the road by putting up 350,000 hjj cash as offering and also in their a free-wi- ll willingness to guarantee the right of way. The failure is not due to indif-ereuor inability of the people for they met every demand. It is not due to the committee but only to promoters visiouary ideas of would-b- e who evidently overestimated their resources. Doubtless the failure may not be so bad after all for it demonstrates that the people of this county will meet any reasonable demand to better the public condition. We feel in making this statement that this notice is incomplete without paying tribute to whom tribute is due, therefore we desire to say: From first tp. last, through all stages of the game, in honest, faithful anck capable endeavor no man put in more time or exhibited more zeal than Judge W.W. Jones. In season and out of season he kept the faith and never swerved from duty. He was selected as Chairman of the committee and presided as leader of the enterprise and largely to his efforts, enterprise and zeal the people of this county met every requirement. We thank the people for their hearty support, the entire committee for a faithful discharge of duty and Judge Jones for his personal and effective work. For the present we consign the proposition to the grave, beliving in its resurrection and success in due time. ce - 13-t- Well-kno- w x well-fille- S. C. Neat a Candidate.

The afternoon papers refrain from any comment," even the headlines being noncommittal and the stock market, which usually is the most responsive barometer of popular sentiment, seemed to be unaffected Nevertheless the speech occupies a large part of the restricted columns of the press and is regarded as the news feature of the day.

At one point near the Junction to the French and British lines, at a place in the Argonneand at a place in Alsace, according to this newspaper, soldiers decided to send letters to President Wilson signed by 300 of them, thank- ing him for his generous intervention in favor of peace and inviting him to "dream no longer of the chimera of peace until victory is gained."
