Wool-dridge, l, There were many moisfc eyes in Columbia last Tuesday afternoon when thirty-siof our young men bid adieu to home 'folks and friends and left for CampZacaray Taylor at the call of 'our country. At the sound of the bugle the young men assembled in the Parlor qircle Theater building and marched to the court-hous- e where a mass meeting was held. The ministers of the churches of Columbia, Eev. Piercy, Bush, Schad, Watson, all made speeches appropriate to the occasion and since Eld. Williams was absent Eld. Huffaker represented him. Also addresses were made by Prof. R. R. Moss, Judge W. W. Jones, W. A. Coffey and J. N. Conover. A Jarge flag the stars and stripes, waved in the breeze, and "America" was sung. It was a meeting that showed appreciation on the part of our citizens, love for the cause, sympathy and good cheer for the young men who are to fight the battles for freedom. No set of young men are responding to tha call of our country with more vim or better nerve than those of Adair and there is not a fear that a truant will be found in her full quota. They will do their duty in battle as they have done at home. It is but natural that lheparens of the young men who are called to serve our country under the selective service law, feel sad when the parting hour arrives,but sadas the parting may be, and as much as we may regret the world condition and the part our country was forced by unbearable circumstances to take, the fact remains that duty must be done, victory achieved and permanent peace secured for all nations. There fs a vast difference between hope and reality, between desire and actuality, what we cherish and what we hate. The people of this country love peace and hate war: they cherish and love freedom, and abhor and resent enslavement to others. They know the cost of freedom through the history of the colonies: they know its cost of maintenance by the sacrifices of the rebellion. we face a condition, not of our choosing, n6t of our desires, but a condition thrust upon us and must, and is being met with all the powers of the country's resources. When our young men have crossed f the waters and have proven powerful factors in silencing the guns supporting autocracy When they have discharged their duty to home and the world then it will be a glorious return, a glorious victory, and the weeping mothers will be shouting saints of a peace vouched safe for future generations. There are no toriesinthis section, none who are resisting duty. The young men of Adair have the nerve, courage and patriotism and while we regret the world war involves our country, mothers and fathers, bid them do their duty, and may God bless and protect them from harm and danger. x To-da- y at Remember, and attend the recital Lindsey-Wilso- n of this week.

His death occurred at SCane Yalley, this county. Rev. B. T. Watson, who has become the pastor of the Presbyterian Church, this place and Union, delivered two very interesting discourses here last Sunday. The church was completely filled at the forenoon services, and a very large audience was out at night. All the other churches In town were represented at the evening services. Rev. Watson speaks with great force and the Church and people generally are well pleased with him. Miss Maude B. CantriU and her sister, Miss Pearl CantriU, daughters of the late W. F. CantriU, who was a law- yer and Master Commissioner of the Green circuit court, were quietly married at the same time, at their home, in Greensburg, a few days ago. The former was married to Mr. T. L. Gardner, a traveling salesman, the latter to Mr. L. L. Penick, a joung business man of Greensburg. On account of the death of the father the affair was very quiet.

There are two days of the week which and about which never worry, two care-fre- e days kept sacredly free fear anil apprehension. One of these is Yesterday. Yesterday with all its care3 and frets, with all its pains and aches, all its faults, its mistakes and blunders, has passed beyond the reach of my recall. I cannot undo an act that T wrought. I cannot unsay a word that I said on Yesterday. All that it holds of like, of regret and sorrow, is in the hand of the Mighty Love that can bring sweet waters out of the bitterest desert the love that can make the wrong things right, that can turn weeping to laughter, that can give beauty for ashes, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, joy of the morning for the wge of night. Save for the beautiful memories that linger, sweet and tender like the perfume of roses, in the heart of the day that is gone, I have nothing to do with yesterday. And the other day I do not worry about is Tomorrow. Tomorrow, with all its possible adversities, its burdens," its perils, its large promises and poor performance, its failures and .mistakes, far beyona the reach of my mastery as its dead sister yesterday. Its sun will rise in. roseate splendor, or beyond a maskpf weeping clouds.. But it will rise. Until then the same love and patience that held yesterday, and holds tomorrow. shines with tender promise into the heart ofto-day- . I have no possession, in that unborn day of gr,ace.

A May day snow of course, is a rarity m this latitude, but Colonel Martin says we will have it and that should settle it. There will be no season before Christmas, he says, but we are to have a very sharp cold snap about Thanksgiving. Mild weather is predicted during Christmas week in fact he says that overcoats can be dispensed with on Christmas day. as it will be warm and pleasant The coldest weather of the winter will be in January, when, he says, there will be two days when the mercury will drop to zero. A big sleet is scheduled for some time in February, exact date not stated. There will also be one ice spell in this month but he says he will have to wait until Ground Hog day to determine when this will be. On the whole, Colonel Martin says that the coming winter is to be the mildest that has been experienced in Kentucky in the last 25 years and adds in his characteristic vin: "It will be a poor man's. winter all through tbfe firat winter in years that the Town - coal man will suffer.! -Ntwi.-- . , .

Morris, of Oldham county, was nominated unanimously by the Democratic State Con- f : trol and Executive Committee for Atj- torney General to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Hon. M. M. Logan. Mr. Morris is well and favorably known to many people in this part of the State. He was appointed Assistant Attorney General by our fellow countyman, Gen. James Gar-net- t, served through his term, was then appointed first assistant by Gen. Logan, and when Gen. Logan resigned, Gov. Stanley appointed him Attorney General. Mr. Morris is a lawyer of fine ability familiar with the duties of that department of the State's interests, and a gentleman of the highest integrity. He is a Democrat whose record is unquestionable, and in point of service the best man in the State to discharge the duties, of the office. His father was the last special Judge to try Caleb Powers and gave satisfaction to both sides and for many years was commonwealth attorney for the twelfth Judicial district and made a State wide reputation as a fearless and most capable official. We take pleasure in placing Mr. Morris' name at the head of our ticket to stand until his election. 3pr." - " '. . , j.Vt? , " 3 -- g ...ii. rti '?; flfffcfjwjtj "7" 42 HwkAfnifil,im .'. -- savVs T' 11" Tw X3g "i i ii.ii ii .

Co Camp-bellsvllle There never has been a time when our farmers fared so well as at present, and there has never been a time ..when the world needed the supplies more than at this time. Our government urges the sowing of a large acreage in wheat, and to induce the farmers to produce all within 'their power, guarantees a minimum price of $2 per bushel for the 1918 crop. Undoubtedly under such a guarantee a tremendous acreage will be sown, and under normal conditions should make enough to feed our people and our European friends. The guarantee that wheat shall pot sell for less than 82, and it may sell much higher, is too good to permit wheat land to lay idle.
