Coy, of Columbia, being a niece. Mrs. Gilmer is a daughter of Capt. James Murrell, long since dead, but in the early sixties lie was the best known man in Adair county. He was a man of large brain and ready wit, a very companionable gentleman, hte company being soughr, bv such men as Gen Glp Suddarth, Governor Bram-lett- e and other distinguished characters. He was at all times ready to respond, especially if lie saw an opportunity to work oil a little fun. After his oldest daughter had married and his second daughter, Mary, called Puss, having left for Texas, Mrs. McCIain, then single, and Cornelia, the youngest, had decided to make their home with relatives in the Glensfork country, Capt. Murrell thought it best that he break up housekeeping. After the last load of household goods had been hauled to the residences of his children, he walked from his former home to the square, and upon the corner where the Bank of Columbia is located, he met Spence Dabney, Gip Suddarth and John A. Peebles. Capt. Murrell greeted them thusly: "The birds of the air have nests and the foxes of the woods hath holes, but the builder of this town hath not where to lay his head." Dabney, who was as poor as a church mouse, said: "Capt. come down and eat dinner with me." Qujckly this response came: "Spence, what days do you eat?" Before taking her departure Mrs. Gilmer stated that she had spent a most delightful visit, and before many years she would come again. Mrs. Cornelia Grove, Texas, a All Day Meeting at Columbia.

Watson, pastor qf the Presbyterian Church, whode ivered a religious discourse, incidentally referring to the war and the part our country was playing in it The discourse was logical and delivered with great force, appreciated by the entire audience At the close of this splendid address the congregation was dismissed for dinner, which was spread on the Miller lot, on Water Street The spread was a magnificent affair, the good people of Columbia and out in the county having prepared an abundance of the very best of edibles for the entire crowd. At 2 o'clock the vast throng returned to the court house, and the first speaker was Judge W W Joues, who made a fine address in the interest of the Red Cross, in which he re cited all the wars in which the United States had engaged in, coming out on top in every contest. A large num ber joined the society at the close of his address. Mrs. Annie M. Woodall, of the Lindsey-Wilsofollowed with a very appropriate reading which was highly appreciated.it being rendered in, a manner so distinctly that there was not a stir while the lady was on the n, Last Sunday was devoted to a discourse and patriotic addresses at the court-housthe building being crowded from Ham, until 4:30 in the af e, floor.

Miss Frances Garnett, daughter of ft former Attorney General James her home, in Louisville, " October the 2d, for Cambridge, Mass., where she will enter college for the purpose of taking a special course in physical culture and also in expression. Miss Garnett was born and reared here and is quite popular with the young people. She is a graduate of the. Kentucky College for Women, Danville, and is quite a talented young lady. Gar-neffce- is a very talented lady, reciting with perfect ease and grace. The rendition of the scene from Les Miserables, reminded the readers of this famous book of one of the most touching recitals it contains. As the lady spoke you could almost see Jean Val Jean, the Galley slave, and the old Bishop, as he' magnanimously befriended him. Her other selections were high class and given most beautifully. Mrs. Woodall is certainly coming up to the strong endorsements as to her skill and literary attainments, sent in before her arrival. During the evening the selections of the reader were interspersed with music, piano and violin, by Mrs. C. M. Russell and Prof. Walter Sullivan, who bear the distinction of being high class musicians, and whose efforts on this occasion were highly appreciated.

Goodman, of Russell county, spent Sunday in Columbia, enjoyed the patriotic meeting and the many hand shakes from true and tried friends , who still remain here. Mr Goodman is a candidate for Sheriff of Russeli county, and, as we understand was solicited to make the race by scores of good substantial citizens irrespective pf political views. He was therefore made the nominee by the Democratic party and is now in the running. It is not our intention to meddle in the affairs of others but it is our make up and a settled policy of The News to pay a compliment where justly merited, especially to a man we know to be true, upright and capable. Mr. Goodman was in business in tftis town for several years We know him and appreciate him for his sterling worth, "for his high ideais an upright, dependable and capable man. The people of his county will decide, in November, whether or not he will be Sheriff, but be it known, regardless of the result, J. T Goodman.will make an honorable campaign, free from money, booze or deception and if elected will do his duty faithfully, honestly, and courageously. The next was a stirring patriotic address by Eld. H. Gordon Bennett, who is an able minister of the Christian Church, now holding a meeting at Cane Valley. He is a native of Wisconsin, but at present is located at Lagrange, Oldham county, where he d on found his wife. He is all the phases of the war, and he tells his story in a most forceful and entertaining manner. His language shows conclusively that he is a college man, one who has made good use of his time. During the course of his address he said: "My first vote for a Governor was cast for Bob Lafollette, now in the United States Senate, who at this time is a disgrace to civilization; that he should be expelled from the Senate; that he is an enemy to tills country." He likewise scored Caleb Powers, who he said was going over the Eleventh district criticising the President's war policy. This he knew to be a fact, as he was just from the district that Powers is supposed to represent He, too, he said should be unseated in Congress. His speech was thrilling all through, and when he closed there was prolonged applause. The song service during the day was made up of patriotic airs and they were rendered most beautifully by a number of ladies and gentlemen. All the ministers in town were pres ent, each having a part. When the congregation was dismissed every body was happy, knowing that the dny had been very much enjoyed, well-poste- Having severed my connection with the Greensburg Loose Leaf Ware House Co., to accept a position as sales Manager in a much larger and better equipped plant of Campbellsville, Ky. I wish to extend my thanks to the farmers of Adair and surrounding counties for the patience shown me and for the unavoidable hardships they were forced to undergo while marketing their tobacco in Greensburg. The Modern equipped plant with an immense and well lighted sales floor with prize rooms in connection, each installed with motor driven hydraulic presses, will enable us.to handle our patrons without delay or congestion. The quarters for farmers and their stock will be ample aud commodious The management is sparing neither pains or money to make and equip this plantrsecond to none in this section of the State. Every minor detail that would pertain to the farmer's interest has been carefully studied and put into effect. The force of buyers assure strong competition and spirited bidding on each and every grade. The auctioneer whose efficiency in his line is State wide and beyond question, is a live wire and a good judge of tobacco. Every farmer available to this market will find me there and as ever ready and willing to render you my services or impart any helpful information in regard to the tobacco situation Trusting I may meet many familiar faces from Adair and surrounding territory, and shake the hand of honest toil, I remain, Yours truly, Sam Bottom. Beginning last Wednesday the remainder of the week was put in by patriotic citizens in holding meetings at various points in the county. "How to Win was disWar" the cussed, and patriotic songs sung by a glee club. Conservation was presented to the farmers, all of whom became enthused and doubtless a larger crop will be put in next year than will be gathered this year. Hon. Jas. Garnett, a former citizen of Columbia, now of Louisville, was here and spoke at one or two appointments. a frightful dent occurred near the former accires- idence of the late Mrs. M. E. Marcum. A young man named Edwin Price who was in a buggy, accompanied by two young girls, were enroute to their home. Einniard Rowe was coming up the street in an auto leading to the Graded School building. And just as he made the turn on to the pike. lead, ing to the square, he met another auto, the lights shining brightly, and Kinniard says that he aud did not see the buggy until he ran into it. When he buggy was struck the occupants screamed, and Kinniard stopped his machine and went to the assistance of the occupants of the buggy. Fortunately the occupants of the vehicle were not hurt to any great extent. The horse, however, was cut in one of two places, and some spokes of the front wheels of the buggy broken Young Rowe is very sorry that the accident occurred and is willing to make the damages whole. We talked to Mr. Rufus Price Friday morning, who is the father of the young man who was in the buggy and also the owner of the animal he was driving, and he said that he was perfectly satisfied that it was an unavoidable accident. was-blinde- The meeting of the next Thursday night will be very important.

During the long and trying period that the United States attempted to maintain its position as a neutral, Senator advocated every measure which would surrender our rights and opposed every measure to protect and defend them. With the country at war he declined to' follow Mr. Bryan's patriotic example of support to the Government, but has consistently, and without exception voted against every bill, whose passage was vital to the prosecution of the war. He was one of the twelve Senators who opposed the Armed Neutrality resolution; one of the six against the War resolution; one of eight against Food Conservation; and one of four against the War Revenue bill.

Has mother, through all these years of labor, watching and waiting, 'been wasting her love on a worthless bunch of clay, who, in the rosy dawn of manhood has no other term more fitting than "the old woman" by which to address or speak of his mother?
