We are informed:thatisome markets are circulating the report that they are from two to two and? one-hadollars per one hunderd higher than any market in the state. J We the Farmers Tobacco Warehouse Co.,;ofiCampbelIs-vill- e, Ky., do noo;wish to mislead you or spread broadcast throughout our territory, circulars orjletters to create any false impressions and then have you come to our market expecting fabulous prices, and ?go home downhearted and disappointed because you could not make a 2j. cent average on your dark or a 30;cent average on your burley. The conditions that confront the Tobacco Marketjare such that has never existed in the history of the tobacco trade. There has never befoje been an embargo on shipping tobacco from local districts, thereby causing a slump in prices. Not only has the price been effected by the uncertanty of transportation, botli local and foreign, but by the care or coudition of the tobacco as it is brought to the market aud offered for sale. We ask the grower this question. What can the buyer do with wet tobacco when they can't ship to their manufacturer or a redryer, although he is forced to buy it at a reduced price? Bring your tobacco to our market in good keeping condition. See that the stem will crack at least a third of the way of the hand. Grade it carefully at home and bring it to us and see for yourself. You will coincide with us in that, we hold the top averages. Our sales are publicly posted and we do not advertise any false reports in order to get a little commission. Those of you who expect to sell, watch the condition and bring your tobacco to us.

When Sheba bade the prisoner good-b- y it was with a phrase of the old "God save you Irish vernacular. kindly." ne knew the peasant's answer to the wish and gave it "And you, too." The girl left the prison with a mist in her eyes. Her cousin looked at her with a queer, ironic little smile of affection. To be in trouble was a sure passport to the sympathy of Sheba. Now both her lovers were in a sad way. Diane wondered which of them would gain most from this new twist of fate. Selfridge had been shocked at the sight of Macdonald. The terrible bcat- - anu tne loss of blood had sapped all the splendid, vital strength of the Scotsman. His battered head was swathed in bandages, but the white face was bruised and disfigured. The wounded man was weak as a kitten; only the steady eyes told tliat he was still strong and unconquered. "I want to talk business for. a minute. Miss Sedgwick. Will you please step out?" said Macdonald to his nurse. She hesitated. "The doctor sys " "Do as I say, please." The nurse left tliem aloae. Wally told the story of the evidence against Elliot in four sentences. His chief caughr the piint at once. After Selfridge had gone, the wounded man lay silent thinking out his program. Not for a moment did he doubt that he was goimc to live, and his brain was already busy planning for the future. He knew now that in the violence of his anser against Elliot, he had made a mistake. To have killed his rival would have been fatal to the Kamatlah coal claims, would have alienated his best friends, and would have prejudiced hopelessly his chances with Sheba. Fate had been kind to him. ne had been in the wrong and It had put him in the right. By the same cut of the cards young Elliot had been thrust down from an impregnable position to one in which he was a discredited suspect With all this evidence to show that he had conspired aqninst Macdonald. his report to the department would be labor lost. Diane came Into the sickroom stripping her gloves after the walk. Macdonald smiled feebly at her and fired the first shot of his campaign to defeat the enemy. "Has Elliott been captured yet?" he asked weakly. The keen eyes of his hostess fastened upon him. "Captured! "What do you mean? It was Gordon Elliot that brought you in and saved your life." "Brought me from where?" "From where he found you unconscious at the ford." "That's his story, is it?" The young woman stood with her gloves crushed tight in both hands. It was hei nature to be always a partisan. Without any reserve she was for Gordon In this new fight upon him. What had Wally Selfridge been saying Did the mine owner to Macdonald? mean to suggest that he had identified Elliot as one of his assailants? The thing was preposterous. And yet that was plainly what he had meant to imply. If he told such a story, things would go hard with Gordon. In court it would clinch the case against him by supplying tho one missing link In the chain of circumstantial evidence. Cinlir.uel . 3 net wtek ADAIR COUNTY NEWS 3?.

The stock and its companion piece, the whipping post have disappeared, and in their stead we have substituted the ball and chain, and rock pile. The same term of court at which arrangements were made for the pillary and stocks, an order was entered for a "stray pound." It was to be 60 feet square, white oak posts, and good rails. On the 28thof September.lSO, an order was entered for the building of a and plan of the house agreed upthe on Hugh Beard, Andrew Ew-in- g and James Walker were appointed to let the contract. The contractors for the building of the court-hous-e were Wm. Sutton and Robert Ball, and the contract price 700 pounds. The clerk's office was built in the year 1812 by Wm. Diddle and Benj. Lampton. Lampton, as will be seen further on, was the grandfather of Mark Twain. The committee to superir.tend the Duilding of the were Wm. Hurt, Chas. Creel, and Robert Rowland.

Men may differ, however, as to which were the better times. The Iimatation then was not upon the quanity or the grade, but only upon the price to be paid for it. One could have wine, brandy, rnm, whisky, "cider,'' or beer as might suit his purse or taste, and if perchance, he did not have clean sheets on his bed, he had the opportunity and the privilege of getting "three sheets in the wind" at the taverns of the country, or as it might be differently expressed gentmanly drunk. We would not say ought to detract from the good old days of our facners. or for the reverence in which we hold them and their lives, yet we would regret to lose the belief, which grows with the experience of years, that the world is better now than it was an hundred years ago, and that it will be much better a century hence than it is now. Many of us can remember (and it in not very far in the past,) when a hotel, without a salojn in connection with it, was tne ti n. The saloon was regarded as an indispensable adjunct to it. The farthers of that day re garded it in that light, and it would have been difficult to con vince them otherwise.

On the 23rd of August the first order was entered looking to the erection of public buildings, and the most pressing de- mand seemed to be for a jail, at least it was the first to receive attention. It wa9 modest in pre tentions, and somewhat primi- tive in style, or would be so re- garded at this time. The follow ing were its dimensions, viz: twelve feet square in the clear, two stories high; the floor to be one foot thick, square timber, the first story to be 7 feet high in the clear, the upper story to be 8 feet high, the walls to be 2 feet thick, square timber of one foo:, one outdoor, one trap door, 2 windows above, and one- - be low, one foot square and each well ironed. But this was not the only ar- rangement made for the proper care, and entertainment of pris oners. Disposed to ne very nos pitable. they provided yet another place at public expense a place where their guests could have a better'view than that af forded by the little windows, and where they could not only see, but where they could also be seen. It was placed conspicuously on the public square, and was very much calculated to attract attention to those who, for the time being, occupied it. The order referred to, provided for the erection of a ''complete pillary - 1802. i j j ; ' j j i At the September term, the tavern rate3 for the county were fixed.

Jan. 31 President Wilson, in the course of a message to the farmers of Amer ica, delivered through the Farmers Conference at Urbana, 111., made'the following very remarkable and significant statement, which is taken here to express the President's view that the end of the world war will come during the present year. "You will realize, as I think statesmen on both sides of the water realize, that the culminating crisis of the struggle has come and that the achievements of this year on the one side or the other must determine the issue. It has turned out that the forces which fight for the freedom, the freedom ofimen all over the world, as well as our own depend upon us in an extrrordinary and unexpected degree for sustenance, for the supply of the materials by which men are to live and to fight, and it will be our glory when .t the war is over that we have supplied those materials, and supplied them abundantly, and it will be all the more glory, because in supplying them we have made our effort and sacrifice." sup-pre- Washington, stances seem to forebode on account of the two winged ma chine domination of the Democratic party in Kentucky, who could on account of "their past splendid record for honest and efficient service to the people be expected to make good for the early regeneration and restoration of real democracy in Kentucky. Judge McKenzie Moss, of Bowling Green, is one of these men and he would not do dis credit to Kentucky as either Governor or Senator. Judge W. W Jones, of our own Columbia, would suit us better if we could choose for the Republican party. If the party could wisely see that continued subserviency to men of the Morrow and Jack Oliver type will bring to that party and the what the Palmer-Hal- y Brown-Brow- n alternate regimes in the Democratic Party for the past 20 years has done for Jef- fersonian Democracy in Kentucky, they would wisely offer the people the services of their best men. 144 V T !&& D !

(By Associated Press.) i J Throughout Germany, and especially in the industrial sections of the North', the strike movement is spreading, and more than 700,000 workmen are reported idle.' Strikers and soldiers are reported to have collided in a suburb of Berlin and lives were lo3t. In several instances the troops are said to have refused to fire on the strikers. Hamburg and Berlin appear to be the most seriously affected, and according to one Hamburg newspaper a state of seige has been proclaimed in Hamburg, Altona and Wandsbeck. The workers in government and private dock yards at Kiel have joined the movement as have more workers in the industrial cities and towns along the Rhine and in Westphalia. In the important Bavarian manufactur ing towns of Nuremburg and Furth, the workmen are out. Three important Berlin newspapers, including the Socialist Vorwaerts, have been suppressed. The head of the great Krupp worKs ana lneia Marshal von 'Hindenburg have appealed to the vorkers to stay at their tasks the Field Marshal declaring that the strikes must cease. Before its suppression Vorwaets printed an ultimatum to the government in which the workers demanded a general peace without annexations, amelioration of the food situation; the lessening of military law and the democratization of State institutions. British newspaper correspondents in Holland are uncertain whether the strike movement is real or manufactured. One says? that the government is behind it in the hope that it will affect the entente allied countries and The Associated Press.) For the second time since the American troops entered the front lines in France their position has been raided by the Germans. After a violent artillery barrage and during a heavy fog the enemy attacded an American position on an unnamed sector of the French front Wednesday morning. Two Americans were Killed, tour wounded ana one is reported missing. It is belived that the missing soldier is a German prisoner. On the sector which was raided have occurred the casualties sent out from Washington during the past few days. For military reasons it was considered inadvisable to send earlier reports. Most of the deaths and most of the wounds were caused by shrapnel. American cannon and machine guns have replied to the Germans and it is believed their casualties equal or exceed those among Gen. Pershing' stroops. In the first raid, on November 3 the American losses were three killed, five wounded and twelve made prisoner by the enemy. l h Can man, so the aye Your Sole A the SOUL k the SOLE is vital p. ad .til tic i;. part of his shoe. tOMOM Mfr Adair County News Will Furnish We Promptly shoe is replaced, the greatly proloaged.

Sugar Is selling today throughout to 9 cents a America at from 8 pound to the consumer, even though there Is a world shortage which has reduced this nation's sugar allotment to 70 per cent of normal. Through the efforts of the United States food administration the sugar market has been regulated as far as the producer, refiner and wholesaler Is concerned. The food administration has no power to regulate retail prices except by public opinion. Even though more than 85,000 tons of sugar have been shipped to France in the last four months the retail grocer's sugar cents. He price is around 8 to 8 to 9 should sell this sugar at 8 cents, the food administration believes, and asks the American housewife to pay no more than tills amount Last August when the food administration was organized the price of sugar rose suddenly to 11 cents a pound. During the Civil War sugar cost the consumer 35 cents a pound. By regulation of the sugar market and reducing the price to 8 and 9 cents and keeping it from advancing to 20 cents the food administration has saved the American public at least in four months, according to a statement made by Herbert Hoover the other day. "It is our stern duty to feed the allies, to maintain their health and strength at any cost to ourselves," Mr. Hoover declared. "There has not hpon. nnr will ho ns w see it. enouch smrnr for. oven their nresent meagre! and depressing ration unless they send ships to remote markets for it If we in our greed and gluttony force them either to further reduce their ration or to send these ships we will have done damage to our abilities to win ' $180,-000,000 averaged about 85 cents and Increased costs were found to have been imposed by the war in increased cost of refining, losses, cost of bags, labor, Insurance, Interest and other tilings, rather more than cover the difference. After prolonged negotiations the refiners were placed under agreement establishing these limits on October 1, and anything over this amount to be agreed extortionate under the law. "In the course of these investigations it was found by canvass of the Cuban producers that their sugar had, during the first nine months of the past year, sold for an average of about $4.24 per hundred f. o. b. Cuba, to which duty and freight added to the refiners' cost amount to about $5.GG per hundred. The average sale price of granulated by various refineries, according to our investigation, was about $7.50 per hundred, or a differential of $1.84.

Washington, Jan. 2C. Following is text of President Wilson's proclamation: Many causes have contributed to create the necessity for a more intensive effort on the part of our people to save food in order that we may supply our associates in the war with the sustenance vitally necessary to them in these days of privation and stress. The reduced productivity of Europe because of the large diversion of manpower to the war, the partial failure of harvests and the elimination of the most distant markets for foodstuffs through the destruction of shipping, places the burden of their subsistence ve,ry laigely on our shoulders. The food administration has formulated suggestions which, if followed, will enable us to meet this great responsibility. In order that we may reduce our consumption of wheat and wheat products by thirty per cent a reduction imperatively necessary to provide the supply for overseas wholesalers, jobbers and retailers should 'purchase and resell to their customers only seventy per cent of the amounts used in 1917. All manufacturers of alimentary paste?, biscuits, crackers, pastry and breakfast cereals should reduce their purchases and consumption of wheat and wheat flour to seventy per cent of their 1917 requirements, and all bakers of bread and rolls to eighty per cent of their curient requirements. Consumers should reduce their purchases of wheat products for home preparation to at least seventy per cent of those of last year, or, when buying bread, should purchase mixed cereal breads from the bakers. food-savin- g has in his employe safe and reliable drivers.

Following the issuance of a proclamation by President Wilson calling for additional food economies, Federal Food Administrator Fred M. Sackett today made known to the people of Kentucky the contents of the Kitchen Card. This card, which supersedes the Kitchen Card distributed during Pledge Card Campaign Week, October 2Sth to November 4th, calls upon all the people of America to observe two wheatless days weekly, one meatless day and one porkless day, as well as a wheatless and meatless meal every day.

With a view to more efficient organization of the trade In Imported sugars next year two committees have been formed by the food administration : 1. A committee comprising representatives of all of the elements of American cane refining groups. The principal duty of this committee is to divide the sugar imports pro rata to their various capacities and see that absolute justice Is done to every refiner. 2. A committee comprising three representatives of the English, French and Italian governments; two representatives of the American refiners, with a member of the food administration. Only two of the committee have arrived from Europe, but they represent the allied governments. The duties of this committee are to determine the most economical sources from a transport point of view of all the allies to arrange transport at, uniform .. i. rates, to uistnuuiu me loruigii between the United States and allies, subject to the approval of the American, English, French and Italian gov- INSURANCE "The Service Agency.

These ships if used in transporting trcops would take 15O.C00 to 200.0C0 men to France." Reason for World Shortage. As Mr. Hoover pointed out, the United States, Canada and England were sugar importing countries before the war, while France and Italy were very nearly self supporting. The mnln sources of the world's sugar supply was Germany and neighboring powers, the West Indies and the East Indies. German sugar is no longer available, as it is used entirely in Germany, which also absorbs sugar of surrounding countries. England can no longer buy 1,400,000 long tons of sugar each year from Germany. 'The French sugar production has dropped from 750,000 to 210,- 000 tons. The Italian production has fallen from 210,000 tons to 75,000 tons. Thus three countries were thrown upon East and West Indian sources for 1,925,000 tons annually to maintain their normal consumption. Because of the world's shipping shortage the allied nations started drawing on the West Indies for sugar; East Indian sugar took three times the number of ships, since the distance was three times as great Suddenly the west was called on to furnish and did furnish 1,420,000 tons of sugar to Europe when 300,000 tons a demand. The year was the pre-wallies had drawn from Java 400,000 tons before the shipping situation became acute. "In spite of these shipments," Mr. Hoover stated the other day, "the English government In August reduced the household sugar ration to a basis of 24 pounds per annum per capita. And In September the French government reduced their household ration to 13 0 pounds a year, or a bit over 1 pound of sugar a month. Even this meagre ration could not be filled by the French government It was found early In the fall. America was then asked for 100,000 tons of sugar and succeeded in sending 85,000 tons by December 1. The French request was granted because the American household consumption was then at least 55 pounds per person, and It was considered the duty of maintaining the French morale made our course clear." Today the sugar situation may be summarized by stating that if America will reduce its sugar consumption 10 to 15 per cent this ar ! ernments. This committee, while holding strong views as to the price to be paid for Cuban suenr. has not had the final voice. This voice has rested in the governments concerned, together with the Cuban government, and I wish to state emphatically that all of the gentlemen concerned as good commercial men have endeavored with the utmost patience and skill to secure a lower price, and their persistence has reduced Cuban demands by 15 cents per hundred. The price agreed upon is per hundred pounds, f. o. b. about Cuba, or equal to about $6 duty paid 0 Substitute Potatoes. To provide sufficient cereal food, homes, public eating places, dealers and manufacturers should substitute potatoes, vegetables, corn, barley, oats and rice products, and the mixed cereal bread and other products of the bakers which contains an admixture of other cereals. In order that consumption may be restricted to this extent, Mondays and Wednesdays should be observed as wheatless days each week, and one meal each days should be observed as a wheatless meal. In both homes and public eating places, in order to reduce the consumption of beef, pork and sweet products, Tuesday should be observed as meatless day in each week, one meatless meal should be observed in each day; while, in addition, Saturday in each week should further be observed as a day upon which to eliminate pork.

The wholesale grocer has agreed to limit his profit to 25 cents a hundred plus freight and the retail grocer is supposed to take no more than 50 cents a hundred pounds profit This regulation was made by the food administration, which now asks the housewife to reduce sugar consumption as much as possible, usteg other sweeteners, and also reminds her that she should pay no more than 9 cents a pound for sugar. Control of Cane Refiners' Profits. st:iWlsh-oien- r "himifdlaH'b "' " ' foon miiniiiisiruiiou." Mr. of the "This price should eventuate," "to about $7.30 per hundred for refined sugar from the refiners at seaboard points or should place sugar in the hands of the consumer at from 8JA to 9 cents per pound, depending upon locality and conditions of trade, or at from 1 to 2 cents below the prices of August last and from to a cent per pound cheaper than today. "There Is now an elimination of speculation, extortionate profits, and in the refining alone the American people will save over $25,000,000 of the refining charges last year. A part of these savings goes to the Cuban. Hawaiian, Porto Klcan and Lousianian producer and part to the consumer. "Appeals to prejudice against the food administration have been made because the Cuban price is 34 cents above that of 1917. It Is said in effect that the Cubans are at our mercy; that we could get sugar a cent lower. We made exhaustive study of the cost of producing sugar In Cuba last year through our own agents In Cuba, and we find it averages $3.39, while many producers are at a higher level. We found that an average profit of at least a cent per pound was necessary in order to maintain and stimulate production or that a minimum price of $4.37 was necessary, and even this would stifle some producers. "The price ultimately agreed was 23 h cents above these figures, or about of a cent per pound to the American consumer, and more than this amount has been saved by our reduction In refiners' profits. If we wish to stifle production In Cuba we could take that course just at the time of all times In our history when we want production for ourselves and the allies. Further than that the state department will assure you that such a course would produce disturbances In Cuba and destroy even ouf present supplies, but beyond all these material reasons is one of human justice. This great country has no right by the might of Its position to strangle Cuba. "Therefore there is no imposition upon the American public. Charges have been made before this committee that Mr. Rolph endeavored to benefit the California refinery of which he was manager by this 34 cent increase in Cuban price. Mr. Rolph did not fix the price. It does raise the price to the Hawaiian farmer about that amount It does not raise the profit of the California refinery, because their charge for refining Is, like all other refiners, limited to $1.30 per hundred pounds, plus the freight differential on tlir established rntnm of the trade.

Some of these rules apply to manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers under license regulations.

They may be used separately cr mixed as the housewife chooses. Purchase of Victory bread is strongly urged. This will consist of a minimum of five per cent of cereal other than wheat for the present, the percentage to be increased until on February 24th it will contain a minimum percentage of twenty per cent. On wheatless days and wheatless meals use of bread made entirely of other cereals is urged.
