Mr. W. A Coffey has been a great sufferer for the past week. An abcess had formed at the roots of a jaw tooth, occasioning the severest, pain The .tooth was withdrawn, but, he is yet suffering, confined to his room. His card explains his conditfon more fully. "Farewellawhile, the ciby.hum . political division and prejudice, both in and out of its party, and while passing through the most bitter political era ever experienced in this State, stood firm to principle, true to purpose and at all times aggressively progressive. Emerging from the turmoil of strife and contention, stronger and wiser, it sought to improve its power and become a factor in bettering public conditions for this section of the State. That an honest, persistent effort lias been made to arouse sentiment and judgment favorable to advancement, to assist in every move ment that indicated more desirable ends, no one can doubt, but those years were rough, rugged and uncertain and levied a tax so heavy on effort and purse that often the silver lining could nob be seen, though later on when its living evidenced a higher and nobler purpose than political servitude or partisan predjudice, its road was smoother and its powers speaking, The broadened. Plainly News has never been at ease with public conditions in this county for it has agitated, aggravated and advocated all the while. It has continually sought improvement and plead for better pubiic conditions; been true to friends and lenient and generous with those who opposed its policies. There has not been a public improvement in Columbia or Adair county that The News failed to introduce and to support to its fullest capacity And never willing to levy a tax that it was unwilling to pay or impose a burden in effort that'it sought to dodge Its editorial policy has been one to build, to improve, to bring development in every avenue of human endeavor, but too often it has not heard the echo of public approval or popular support While misunderstood by many and subjected to unjust and sometimes bitter criticism, yet the many true and loyal friends, united in purpose and inspired by the same unselfish spirit for public im provements, is a legacy of priceless value, while no would be willing to mar or de stroy a single improvement to recover the cost of tax levied. The News has nob been run for revenue only but with the hope that it could be of real and lasting worth to the interests it sought to promote, free from click or clan, believing in a square deal and rigid honesty. In many respects the twenty years has been long, rugged and weary, mixed with success and failures, smiles and frowns, indorsements and censures, but there was pleasure in pursuit. All that The News has been and is now to the people interested in this section, I cheerfully concede a lyon's share to Hr. J. E Murrell, whose pencil prepared a major portion of the spicy news items from its birth to the hour at hand. He has been true and capable. The News has been sold to Mr. Barkesdale Hamlette and he is now in charge. A capable man fitted to give better service and to make the paper of far more worth to this part of the State than I have done. He is a gentleman of experience and education, but acquainted with the griefs and blessings of those who till the soil, being reared on the sunny side of the The Old State and taught to use the hoe. Under his care and direction I trust The News, will grow in power and usefulness and that he may receive an unstinted support. I quit the work with good will for all, extend my thanks to the friends who have been true and loyal, not only of Adair county, but adjoining ones as well and especially Rus'sell cdunty, whose , patronage has measured a substantial part of The News' prosperity. op-pos- er The following is a partial list of Dr. H.

James Garnett, D. -of-fiic- for the genersus support that you have given to its distinguished retiring editor, in that you have during his 20 years of splendid public service, made it possible for your young and humble servant to take up his labors and wear his mantle with initial pleas-ure- , and bouyant hope that in this field still greater things are ahead for us all. Chas. S. Harris has made an enviable record for himself and the News, aud we take his place not without misgivings as to our ability to emulate his successful record, but with a deep and abiding conviction that, success comes only at the end of effort. In taking up the field of journalism, we are buc continuing in another sphere of activity our chosen educational career and erstwhile profession. Well known to this community and the people of Kentucky, the editor has given his whole life to the cause of public education. This he will continue to do in a broader and more effectual way. In addition to this, as has been the past policy of the paper, he will make the News the mouthpiece of progress in all of the affairs of our civic life The general policies of the paper will remain unchanged it will be published as a fair and impartial mouthpiece and public service medium of all che people of Adair and adjoining counties, and others who may be interested in the general affairs of our community and State. We shall endeavor to make ic a newspaper strictly, and the best that can be made with onr efforts and the support that we hope to merit from vour patrons ana subscribers. We shall be especially interested in our soldier boys who have and are still to go forward to the fighting ranks of Old Glory. The editor in the immediate future will arrange to have a regular correspondent at Camp Zachary Taylor and wherever our boys are called, to keep us in touch at all times with our brave lads who have been called to represent us on the world's field of honor. We are going to arrange to publish in the paper a sketch of the life of every soldier that has gone from Adair and our neighboring counties, that and deeds of valor shall be known to posterity, when, their-deportme- I have a floe thoroughbred black Berkshire boar, ready for service, 81 J.

With this issue The Adair County Kews enter its twenty-firs- t year Id the past the publication has used its utmost endeavors to please, its patrons, and the paper will continue along the same line in the future. Twenty years ago when the first edition was mailed to something like seyen hundred subscribers many predicted that it would not live long there being another paper in Columbia that had been running uninter-uptedl- y for more than thirty years. But we were not to be liseouraged. We went right ahead and in a very short time The News outstripped the old publication io point of subscribers and had built up a busy job department. we have a circulation of over two thousand, notwithstanding we have in the last two years stricken from oar subscription list as many as eight hundred names, men who fell behind more than one year, the government not allowing as to longer carry them. The News at this time is in a hcalty condition, and It is the intention of the present management to make improvements as rapidly as possible. There has been reduction in paper, and as soon as it eones down so country publishers can bey it in large quantities, we wilt return to the former size of the publication To those who have stood by the paper in all these years, we feel grateful and desire to return our sincere thanks, promisingwthat we wiil deal fairly with the public and will furnish weekly all the news we can gather. To our friends both in Columbia and out in the sounty and adjoining counties, we give you a cordial invitation to visit the office, as we want to become acquainted, and also to do yon all the good we can.

OiC BODIES AND PRESS FAVOR THE AMENDMENT There is wide spread interest throughout the state in the constitutional amendment permitting the purchase of one telephone company, by another, which was adopted by the last Legislature, and which will be voted upon at the coming November election. Chambers of Commerce and civic bodies in a large number of communities have 'adopted resolutions endorsing the amendment and pledging their efforts towards its passage. Newspapers throughout the state are also endorsing the amendment and are urging the importance of-favorable vote by the people. The amendment to the consitution, which is made a part of Section 201, isxas follows: "Provided, however, that telephone companies may acquire by purchase or lease, or otherwise, and operate, parallel or competing exchanges, lines and structures, and the property of other companies, if the railroad commission or such other state commission as may have jurisdiction over such matters shall first consent thereto, and if, further, each municipality wherein such property or any part thereof is located shall also first consent thereto as to the property within its limits, but under any such acquisition and operation toll line connections with the property so acquired shall be continued and maintained under an agreement between the purchasing company and the toll line companies then furnishing such service, and in the event they are unable to agree as to the terms of such an agreement the railroad commission or euch other State commission as may have jurisdiction over such matters, shall fix the term of such agreement." Chambers of Commerce which have passed resolutions favoring the amendment are those at Bowling Green, Frankfort, Lexington, Shelbyville, Henderson, Middlesboro, State Chamber of Commerce of Louisville, and others.

'Hoover, the National Food Administrator. The canvass will be made during the week in question by the patriotic women who have joined the organization of the Food Conservation Division of the 'Council of Defense in each county of the State, and the object of this address of the Federal Food Administrator for Kentucky is to explain exactly what will be asked of the housekeepers of the State of Kentucky, why it is asked and what may be accomplished for our "country and ourselves. We wish to say at? the outset that the campaign is city wide, state-wid- e No and nation-wide- . D or denominational sectarian lines are involved. The campaign Is endorsed by the clergymen of all the churches of the state, by our leading professional and business men, by all who understand the importance of food conservation as a factor in winning the war. Form of Pledge. will be of the tucky. to sign asked by the canvassers housekeepers of KenThey will be asked, first, the Pledge Card of the F. M. Sackett United States Food Administra tion. "What does that card bind the housekeeper to? Here it is, so all may judge for themselves: To the Food Administrator: I am glad, to join you in the service of food conservation our nation, and I hereby accept membership in the United for States Food Administration, pledging myself to carry out the directions and advice of the Food Administrator in my home, insofar as my circumstances permit. It is best to state exactly what This is the pledge and the entire pledge. There are no dues of membership. Signers will then be askd to hang in the front windows of their homes cards bearing the shield of the United States in colors attesting the fact that they are members of the organization. What the Pledge Means. It is wise, we think, to say a few words in regard to the pledge. It means no more and no less than it reads. It will be observed that signers of he pledge are not asked to bind themselves to any particular things. They are not asked at this time to promise to observe meatless days or to abstain from using any particular kind of food. They simply agree to carry out the directions and advice of the Food Administrator "insofar as their circumstances permit." We are aware that conditions differ in different homes; that what is only a sacrifice to one may, under unusual circumstances, be an impossibility to another. Therefore the qualifying clause "insofar as my circumstances permit" appears in the pledge. This' qualifying clause brings the execution of the Food Administrator's advice" .down to the individual conscience of the housekeeper who signs the pledge. It is not expected that because of this qualification the pledge will go as nothing. It is, in fact, our hope and belief that those who sign this pledge will consider themselves units in a great army of American housekeepers who propose to serve their country and themselves by following as closely as may be possible the directions and advice of the Food Administrator, knowing as we do that those directions will be reasonable. It seems hardly necessary for us here again to contradict the foolish rumors that have been circulated that it is the plan of the Food Administration to seize food found in private homes. No such thing was ever contemplated and will not be contemplated. Such a report is enemy propaganda purposely designed to defeat the objeots of this great conservation movement. Importance of the Work. We feel that we can add little to what has already been said by the President, by Mr. Hoover, and by others qualified to speak on such subjects in regard to the importance of food conservation during the coming winter, and yet, as a housekeeper, speaking to housekeepers, I wish to say that we understand the impbrtance of this work and believe that the housekeepers of the state will understand Jt. Our country is engaged in a great war. Our sons are going out to give, if necessary, their lives for. our country. These brave boys are willing to make, if necessary, the supreme sacrifice, that American ideals may endure, that Ame lean homes may be kept safe from the invader. All of us have work to do at this time and the work that may bo done in the individual homes of America in avoiding waste and saving food may prove not the lease effective move in winning the war. Kentucky goes into the pres.ent winter in some ways well prepared. Employment is general, but prices are very high. The less that is wasted in the average household the less will have to be bought. The prices of foodstuffs offer an inducement to prudence, but unless there is organization and the food that is saved in one home will be wasted in another. Real Emergency Exists. The men who are patriotically working in "VYashington for the country and in charge of this mobilization movement of our food know that a real exigency exists. The 1916 harvest left us no surplus. The 1917 harvest is in and they can count on the food that can be used for ourselves, for the allied nations and for our men at the fighting front. They know that if the same prodigality in the waste of food continues in America, if the same bouteous hospitality and lavish use is maintained in our own homes, there will not be sufficient available to maintain the armies who are fighting our battles on the western front of Europe. They do know, however, that if there begins at once a concerted movement in all American homes to eliminate all unnecessary waste, a movement to follow the advice of tha Food Administrator for the substitution of some foods lor others which we are short, that the cumulative effect of that movement, covering throughout the country 27,000,000 American homes, will provide during the coming winter the tood that will be necessary for us to export, in order to keep the civilian populations of France and England supplied, the armies upon the- battle line and the wonderful army now being prepared by the United States, in their best fighting condition. It is a real emergency In which they appeal to lis, anemergency which can be met in no other way, and they are issuing this call to the women of America to look upon this matter in all seriousness and to be assured that the sacrifices they will make during this coming winter will provide the food which the President of the United States has said is one of the three great elements necessary to winning the war. , No suggestions will he issued that are not felt by those In authority to be extremely necessary, hut they do hope that the people of America will .respond to these suggestions as patriots, determined to do their bit for the cause of civilization throughout tlfe world and the maintenance of F.

Two telephones in a private residence are too expensive to maintain; two telephones in a business house are an expensive necessity; therefore the General Assembly has come to the rescue of the people if they will accept its assistance and go to the polls in November and cast their vote for this amendment." Ky., The Danville, Messenger Bays: 'Two telephone lines in. any community, both contending for "It is hoped that the people will remember and vote for this amendment, as it is the only way in which the public in some localities will ever have decent service." The Interior Journal, Stanford, Ky., Bays: "The Interior Journal favors the amendment and will vote for it One system answers the demand and two are as annoying as they are useless. The demand is for good service, not for multiplicity of exchanges. Then, too, the expense of two systems must be considered. This is just double, and in some cases more than double. Oh! no, don't give us more telephone exchanges, but better service. This is the need of tha hour. The amendment ought to carry." , The Bowling Green, Ky., Times-Journsays: "We cannot too highly commend the Chamber of Commerce i in its efforts to secure the adoption of this amendment by the voters. The Times-Journis for the amendment, and will add its efforts to those of the Chamber . of Commerce to bring about the adoption."

Contrasted with these three the British fighting, severe as it has been, lacks dramatic appeal, as it has been without significant detail. Oi the three operations, Verdun claims first attention because; it is the last act in one of the great battles of human history. It is a final demonstration of the completeness of German defeat and French victory. It places in French hands all the important or useful ground lost between February and August, 1916. It puts the French lines back where they were on the second day of the great German assault along, the heights of the Meuse. But this Verdun affair does more than this: it demonstrates that, despite the disappointments! of the spring, the failure- and retirement of Nivelle, ths morale of the French army remains highi and its power on the offensive 1st still great.
