Vella Scottow, reader and impersonator, who is visiting Miss Walker, and who consented to appear before a Columbia audience. She gave five numbers in a most happy style, showing chj.t she was not a tyro in her profession, and her good taste in committing to memory popular selections. In child dialect she delivers perfectly, so much so that if you did not see her you could not tell her voice from that of a very small girl, her every action and rendition being accurate. The clipping from the "Little Eebel," was both funny and pathetic, and her selection from "The Lost Word" was given most beautifully. She was on the platform about forty-fiv- e minutes, but the time did not seem so long. . Paper Enlarged. This week we again start an eight page paper. To do this our expenses, are increased, as blank paper is very high, and not likely to be much cheaper for some time. We are desirious to please our patrons, give them more reading matter than the publication has been furnishing for several months past. But very few eight page papers in Kentucky are being furnished for one dollar per year, for the reason that one can not live at that price, at the present high cost of paper, but those who have not raised their subscription, hope to pull even by an increase of business in their job and advertising department. We have concluded to start this week with our publication enlarged for the reason that we want to please our present list of subscribers, and at the same time hoping that our situation will be appreciated, and that daily the mails will bring us new patrons. We are going to endeavor to give you a live paper weekly, one that Is worth the money. We want to have representatives in all the different sections of Adair, Eussell and adjoining counties. We - - furnish stamps and stationary to correspondents who will write and send in the news from their localities. Look over this week's News and if you like it, become a subscriber at once.

(By the Associated Press.) The third series of American battalions is now occupying the first line and the second American detachments to enter the trenches have returned to their billets. The relief was accomplished on a brilliant starlight night, without the knowledge of the Germans. Included among the returning troops ia the company which bore the brunt of the recent raid on the American trenches. At retreat this evening this company lined up in a little muddy street in a village nestling under a hill some miles from the - front. Their clothes were caked with mud and the roofs and fences near by were hung wit wet blankets and equipment. . Openings here and there in the ranks showed many men had b een killed, wounded and made prisoners in the trench fight. After the company was dismissed an officer of the battalion watched the men splash off through the mud and said: "There goes the scrappiest bunch of soldiers in France. They are mad all through and are just biding their time till they get a chance to repay the Germans for what happened to their comrades. They will get their revenge before this war is over. You can depend on that." The second return battalions y were going through the same series of bathing and cleaning as the first detachment. The men are to enjoy several days' rest, before taking up the trainirg work again. . to-da- It is very likely that the Na- tional Army will be held in camps in the United States for the next six months as the Allies need food and material more than men THE V ADAIR COUNTY NEWS $1.00 life.. Personal testimony of many who lived through the earlier period and information furnished by American Ambassadors, Consuls, teachers, physicians, missionaries and business men who have recently returned from Turkey to America confirm the worst.

At a history making conference .held in New York in Sept ember, 1917, and participated in by 1S9 representatives of the above classes the very Deoole who know most about actual con ditions in the afflicted territory the following statements were unanimously agreed to as well within the facts: At least 1,000,000 Armenians and Syrians in Turkey have perished during the past two years from massacre, deportation, exposure, starvation, disease. Over 2.000,000 are now homeless and in dire distress. Thousands of Greeks deported from the sea coast of Asia Minor are now in danger of starvation. 400,000 of those in need are orphans. Little children scarcely able to feed themselves live absolutely alone in deserted homes. 75,000 children under twelve years of age are staving in Syria and the Lebanon alone.

NearZensen, on the river Piave, about twenty miles northeast of Venice, the invaders have succeeded in crossing the river on boats, but were repulsed in an attempt to debouch from the bringehead they had constructed. The fighting in the region about Asiago and between there and Monte Cimone, is very bitter, The Austro. Germans attacked in force and gained some defenses, only to be thrown back by the force of Italian counterattacks. Aerlin says Mont Long-ar- a has been captured, but Rome reports officially that the position here has been held against Teuton efforts. At Canove, west of Asiago, an Italian counter-thrurepelled the invaders and resulted in the liberation oi Italian prisoners. Between Mont Cimone and the Piave Berlin claims the capture of Fonzaso, which probably was given up by the Italians in a retirement to straighten out their line. The Italians have occupied their new positions in this region s and the are in contract with them. The crossing of the Piave.near Zenson, may prove a move serious menace to the Piave line than the attempts in the Asiago region. The invaderc tried to advance from the bridgehead they established, but were driven back to the river bank by the Italians. Further Teuton attempts to debouch may be expected, and unless the Italian defense continues strong the Piave position may become so weakened it will have to be given up. st Austro-German- inter- -Allied Record Crops of Corn, 9 Potatoes and Tobacco. Wahjngton, Nov. 11. American farmers have a total corn crop of 3,101,083,000 bushels, or 66,000,000 bushels more than ever grown before in the United States, according to the Department of Agriculture estimate issued today. Had weather conditions been better since the October forcast it is estimated that "the yield would have been 19,700,000 bushel3 above the present figure. With an indicated crop of bushels potatoes also will break all records. Another record breaker is tobacco, with an estimated crop of 1,185,475,000 pounds. The heavy corn crop is due to the large acreage planted and not" to the yield per acre, which averaged 26.4 bushels against 26 last year. While 20 per cerit. of the growing crop did not mature properly it was not wasted, as it will be useful for silo and early feeding. The buckwheat production of 16,813.00 bushels fell below early forecasts, although it compares well with former years. The flaxseed crop, estimated at 9,638,000 bushels,is disappointing, and the cranberry crop is very ahort. 439,-686,0- 00 v ob-serv- ers -- President Wilson in a great address at Buffalo, New York, called upon ororanized rlabor help win the.. war. . - ' y M- - -- k " 14 -- .. ?r-- r ;aBaiis Trak-ssg;....a3s gsfrftfyftrrrrr he is at the same time unable to make any sort of insurance provision for those dependent upon him.

Godfrey Hunter, fa- mously known as the "Gum Shoe" politician and one of the most prominent and powerful republican leaders of the State, died in Louisville at the Deaconess Hospital, last Friday morning, of a complication of diseases. The burial occurred in Cave Hill, Saturday afternoon. A sketch of his life is interesting reading matter, as he had been a powerful and antagonistic leader in many of the State's most hotly contested political battles. His death removed almost the last of the republicans who were principals in the interesting political .events of twenty years ago. "Whiteside Godfrey Hunter parentwas born of Scotch-Iris- h age near Belfast, Ireland, on seventy-fiv- e Christmas day, years ago. At the age of eighteen he came to .this country, settling at Newcastle, Fa., and later going to Philadelphia, where he was graduated from a medical college. He went back to Newcastle and began the practice of medicine, and had just begun to be recognized in his profession when the Civil War broke out. He enlisted as a private in a hospital outfit of Newcastle and soon was appoint ed surgeon, with the rank of Major, which he fulfilled with honor. He served thenfull term of the war and was wounded at Old and New Postage Rates; JJZ!&Xlj$&$?j. :i ,jjTjf a Governhfehh On a Btraight party vote Black- When some of the early day burn would have been elected rates of the United States postal but a number of Gold Democrats department are taken into con Peteasburg. At the close of the war, Dr. Hunter settled in Burkesville, i Cumberland county, Ky where he practiced medicine. He had a talent for politics, however, and an interest in public affairs that caused him to take an active part in them. The country in which he had settled had a large Republican population, many of them veterans of the Union army, and Dr. Hunter found a fertile field for the display of his political abilities. The first results were his election to the Kentucky House of Representatives for three terms, and his election to the Republican national convention of 1880. In 1888 he was elected a member of the Fiftieth Congress from the Third Kentucky district. In 1895 he was elected again to the Fifty-fourt- h Congress. Meanwhile Dr. Hunter had come to be more and more prominent in the Republican politics of the State, and in 1895 he was the Republican campaign manager in the successful battle that resulted in the election of W. 0. Bradley as Governor of Kentucky, the first Republican victory in a gubernational race in Kentucky. In the meantime 'Dr. Hunter's ambition had aimed higher than Congress. He wanted to go to the United States Senate. When the Legislature convened in 1896 he was a candidate for the Republican nomination, and won easily in the Republican caucus. The Legislature that year was almost evenly divided between "the Gum Shoe Statesman" which was humorously applied the Republicans and the Another factor entersd to him during his active career. into it.

W Godfrey Hun' V , Senator J. C. S. Blackburn,! ter," ' - .' w De-bog. Dem-orat- s. . refused to vote for him, and he. could never muster quite enough to win. With this situation prevailing Dr. Hunter would have been elected to the Senate had it not been that another matter arose which ditched his aims as effectively as the" Gold Democrats ditched Blackburn's. The differences between the two are said to have arisen from Bradley's claim that Hunter had devoted more attention to getting control of the Legislature and insuring his election to the Sen-at- e than he had to electing Bradley Governor, and that Bradley's chances had been imperiled thereby. Whatever the cause the feud between Bradley and Hunter became so bitter that Bradley refused to aid Hunter, and was credited with having blocked him at times when his election seemed almost certain. The Bradley-Huntcontest has gone down in the history of Kentucky as one of the most exciting ever known. 'Day after day the Legislature was deadlocked and fruitless balloting went on. Feeling grew so intense that deadly strife between the factions seemed imminent at times. Men strode through the legislative halls and the corridors of the old State House armed to the teeth. The Joe Blackburn quartet, which included Eph and Jack Chinn, sang "Trou ble in the Land." At last, the excitement grew so high that Gov. Bradley called out the mili tia. but the session nnally end ed without any bloodshed and without the election of a Senator. With the adjournment Dr. Hunter's chances for election to the Senate passed away. W. J. e finally knocked the plum. After retiring from - Congress, Dr. Hunter ceased to be active in politics. He became interested in public utilities at Somerset and in the development of oil lands in Southeastern Kentucky, tn recent years he had made .his home in Louisville. Dr. Hunter's next political preferment was his appointment as Minister to Guatemala and Honduras under President and President Roosevelt. He served there from 1898 to 1902. In 1908 he was elected to Congress from the Eleventh Kentucky district to fill out the unexpired term of Vincent Bore.-inHe thus had the distinction of representing two Kentucky districts in Congress, the only Republican to do this. Dr. Hunter's political methods differed entirely from those of the politicians with whom Ken tucky was familiar. Instead of a campaign marked by stump- speaking and noise making, Dr. Hunter preferred to work quietly and keep his opponents in ig norance of what he was about until he delivered his blow. This style won for him his nickname er Lil-la- rd Mc-Kinl- ey ; . -'-- What many people fail to understand in an attempt to gauge the Kossian situatian is that in sideration, the increase in the Russia today there is no govern postal rates last Thursday does ment. not assume a very important as It is possible to tell what all pect.

Pass Christian was named for a Spanish explorer who discovered the deep-watpass that lies close to the main shore. It i3 an old and much honored settlement, having been a popular resort from far back in days. Tradition associates it with the gayest of southern society and with men and women famous in high social circles of this and foreign lands; President Wilson i3 one of Pass Christian's recent notable guests. Its location is g one of the choicest on the' Coast. The shore slopes upward to wooded hills where pines and splendid old oaks,magnolias, palmettoes and a variety of tropic vegetation grow and flower and flourish luxuriantly, while fine old homes,elegant villas and charming bungalows line the avenues and drives along the shore. Life is' ever active at The Pass; there is boating, motoring, go.lf, tennis and fiahing by day and dancing and all other indoor festivities for the evening. Pass Christian boast3 of one of the finest golf courses anywhere in the South. Its proximity to New Orleans and excellent service over the Louisville & Nashville Railroad places all the diversions of the Metropolis within reach of visitors at Pass Christian, who make a day for shopping in New Orleans and return in time for dinner; which is one of the social functions at The Pass; or, remaining in the city for dinner, your can return at your pleasure later in the evening. The hotels rank with the finest in the country, and there are many delightful old country homes, where good board and real southern hospitality are found. The inland country back of Pass Christian is beautiful, and many charming drives may be taken over the excellent roads, among fine, productive fruit and truck farms, which ship much of the early garden stuff that is so eagerly sought in northern markets. The fishing in St. Louis Bay and the tributary streams is excellent, many anglers finding their best sport in the little rivers and streams of the immediate interior. Across the bay from Pass Christian is the somewhat exclusive cottage resort of Bay St. Louis, a place much frequented by residents of New Orleans, who own cottages and bungalows and come here for the water sports and the fishing. It is also popular in winter with many northern people who prefer the quiet of cattage life, with the accompanying freedom for outdoor sports, to the gayer and more'fashionable routine of the larger neighboring resorts. Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis are reached only by the modern steel passenger trains of the LOUISVILLE & NASHVILLE RAILROAD. er ante-bellum low-lyin- trans-portati- on one-ha- The Adair County News $1.00 Suffered Years.
