Every farmer in the county is asked to bring in an eighteen ear sample of his seed corn to the Cumberland Grocery Store, to have it tested or make the test himself. All samples brought in will be tested free but the eighteen ears are to "go the Red Cross. The farmers will be notified of the percentage germination test which their corn makes. The farmers, who want to sell seed corn under a guaranteed germination-tes- t, according to the Lexington Agricultural station must have at least one hundred representative ears tested. The Red Cross will test one hundred ears for any farmer for fifty cents, which is only one-hacent per ear. Select this hundred ears through various parts of your crib and take six grains from each ear, two from the middle of the ear and two from well down toward each end. Bring in this sample of six hundred grains to be tested. Leave your name, address, variety of corn, number of bushels for sale and price per bushels for sale and price per bushel with your sample and if it tests our good, either we or the editor of this paper can probably find a market for all you have to sell.

He knew the danger of pneumonia from a sudden cooling of the heat of the body. Old Gideon took seven of his dogs, driving them two abreast Sis were huskies, rangy, muscular animals with thick, dense coats. They were in the best of spirits and carried their talis erect like their Malemute leader. Butch, though a Malemute, had a strong" strain of collie In him. It gave him a sense of responsibility. His business was to see that the team kept strung out on the trail, and Butch was In the matter of discia pline. His weight was 93 fighting pounds, and he could thrash in short order any dog in the team. The snow was wet and soft It clung to everything It touched. The dogs carried pounds of it In the tufts of hair that rose from their backs.- An icy pyramid had to be knocked from the sled every .half hour. The snow-showere heavy with white slush. Densely laden spruce boughs brushed the faces of the men and showered them with unexpected little avalanches. They took turns In going ahead of the team and breaking trail. It was heavy, work. Before noon they were both utterly fatigued. They dracced forward through the slush, lifting their laden feet sluggishly. They must keep going, and they did, but It seemed to them that every step must be the last. ,, Shortly after noon the storm wore itself out The temperature had been steadily falling and now It took a rapid drop. They were passing through timber, and on a little slope they built with a good deal of difficulty a fire. By careful nursing they soon had a great bonfire going, In front of which they put their wet socks, mukluks, scarfs and parkas to dry. The toes of the dogs had become packed with little Ice balj jGordon and Holt had to go Carefully 6ver Ihe feet of each animal ' to dig these out. The thawed out a slab of dried salmon till the fat began to frizzle and fed each husky a pound of the fish and a lump of tallow. He and Gordon made a pot of tea and ate some meat sandwiches they had brought with them, to save cooking until night When .they took the trail again it was In moccasins instead of mukluks. The weather was growing steadily colder, and with each degree of fall In the thermometer the trail was easier. "Mushing at fifty below zero Is all right when it is all right," explained Holt In the words of the old prospector. "But when It isn't all right it's h 1." "It is not fifty below yet, Is It?" "Nope. But she's on the way. When your breath makes a kinder crackling noise she's fifty." There soon was a crust on the snow that held up the dogs and the sled so that trail breaking was not necessary. The little party pounded steadily over the barren hills. There was no sign of life except what they brought with them into the greater silence beyond. Each of the men wrapped a long scarf around his mouth and nose for protection, and as the part In front of his face became a sheet of ice shifted the muffler to another place. Night fell in the middle of the afternoon, but they kept traveling. Not till they were well up toward the summit of the divide did they decide to camp. They drove into a little draw and unharnessed the weary dogs. It was bitterly cold, but they were forced to set up the tent and stove to keep from freezing. Their numbed fingers made a slow job of the camp preparations. At last the stove was going, the dogs fed, and they themselves thawed out They fell asleep shortly to the sound of the mournful howling of the dogs outside.

The little miner brought in an armful of wood and went out to get a second supply. A few moments later Elliot heard a cry. He stepped out of the tent and ran to the spot where Holt was lying under a mass of ice and snow.

Eagerness, anxiety, dread, fought In his heart He knew that any moment now he might stumble upon the evidence of the sad story which is repeated in Alaska many times every winter. It rang in him like a bell that where tough, hardy miners succumbed a frail girl would have small chance. He cut across over the hill toward the draw, and at what he saw his pulse quickened. Smoke was pouring out of the chimney of a cabin and falling groundward, as it does in the Arctic during very cold weather. Had Shebn found safety there? As he pushed forward the rising sun flooded the earth with pink and stru a million sparkles of color from tho snow. The wonder of It drew the eyes of the young man for a moment toward the hills. A tumult of joy flooded his veins. The girl who held In her soft hands the happiness of his life stood looking at him. It seemed to him that she was the core of all that lovely tide of radiance. He moved toward her and looked down Into the trpnch where she waited. Swiftly he kicked off his snowshoes and leaped down beside her. The gleam of tears was In her eyes as she held out both hands to him. During the long look they gave each other something wonderful to both of them was born Into the world. When he tried to speak his hoarse voice broke. "Sheba little Sheba! Safe, after all. Thank God, you you " He swallowed the lump In his throat and tried again. "If you knew God, how I have suffered!

Nature had brought them together by one of her resistless and unpremeditated impulses. A stress of emotion had swept her into his arms. Now she drew away from him shyly. The conventions In which she had been brought up asserted themselves. An absurd little fear obtruded Itself Into her happiness. Had she rushed Into hls arms like a lovesick girl, taking it for granted that hq cared for her? "You came to look for us?" she asked, with the little shy stiffness oi embarrassment. "For you yes." He could not take his eyes from her. It seemed to him that a bird was singing In his heart the gladness he could not express. He had for many hours pushed from his mind pictures of her lying white and rigid on the snow. Instead she stood beside him, her deli cate beauty vivid as the flush of a flame. . "Did they telephone that we were lost?" "Yes. I was troubled when the storm grew. I could not sleep. So I called up the roadhbuse by long distance. They had not heard from the stage.

For though she had come to him of her own accord for that one blessed minute at dawn, he could not be sure what had moved her so deeply.

I find in the list: Caldwell, Frazer, Mon- roe, Cravens, Hatcher, Page, Pittman, Trabue, Baker, Cheatham, Creel, Gilmer, Hodgens, Ingram, Irvine, Jones, Miller, Owens, Patteson, Stewart, Squires, Waggener, Wheat, Murrell, Smith.

Suddarth, Adj. General of Kentucky, Wm, E. Russell, circuit Judge, Parker French, one of the leaders with Gen. Walker, in filibustering expeditions in Central America, Wm. 0. Murrell soldier in the Mexican war, Gov. Preston H. Leslie Governor of Kentucky, and Saml. B. Maxey, United State Senator from Texas and Lieut. General in the Confederate Army. . Looking across from the junior class of boys in this school to the junior class of girls, as they appear in the catalogue, we find that Timoleon Cravens wedded Mary M. Waggener, Samuel Suddarth married Amanda F. Baker, and Judge Zach Wheat found his second wife, Margaret Ann Frazer, in the same class. Of those who names appear in the catalogue only one of the viz: number is living m early day remarkable in the number of prominent men whom it sent out and remarkable too in the fact that she was a member of it. Altho a centenarian, her mind is clear and active in regard to events occurring around her today and her memory accurate as to the events and persons of yesterday and the dis tant past alike. She is living not in that distant past, but in the present, in the enjoyment of her children and her childrens children, and with a lively interest in her friends and the church with which she is connected. In this list of school girls appear the names of many noble mothers who graced happy homes in after years, and whose children and grandchildren, un der the gentle and refining in fluence of their lives, grew up to useful and honorable positions in seciety, some of whom today are among the most enterprising people here and in other States. The pupils of this school were distributed as follows, one from Todd county, one from Cumber land, seven from Green, thirty three from Adair county outside of Columbia, and eighty from the town. A little later on some very successful schools were taught at points in the county outside of Columbia. A noted teacher of that day was Jesse P. Murrell, a native of the county. He taught at Zion Church and probably for some time in the town. He was especially gifted in ift parting a knowledge of mathematics, and was the author of an arithmetic which set forth his peculiar system. He subsequently removed to Barren County, and died there or in Hart. Wm. H. Sanders, who subsequently removed to Louisvile, and took a position in a bank, had for some time , a very flourishing Mrs. Esther Dohoney, who will school near Mt. Pleasant church. Sud-dart- h, to-day, Edwards. Along from 1852 to 1860, there was very decided interest in the subject of good schools in Colum bia. It was the interest which led to the building of what has been kno.wn as the Columbia Male and Female High School a very decided step forward in educational matters in the town. About this time Rev. Thos. P. Akers, at the time, a Methodist minister, was selected as principal of the school, the boys taught in the old Seminary on the hill, and the girls in the old Methodist church. He was assisted by Henry T. Harris, and Prof. S. K. Caldwell, and able teachers in the girls department. The school was very successful for some time and largely patronized. Akers was a man of fine personal appearance, graceful and commanding, and quite gifted as a public speaker. After leaving here he removed to the State of Missouri, quit the ministry, entered politics, served one or more terms in Congress, and was at one time a contending candidate for the gubernatorial nomination in his party. During the early part of the civil war he removed to New York, and was for a time a conspicuous ngure on Wall Street as a speculator in gold. It was while he was here that the movement was inaugurated for building the Columbia M. & F. High School, and we suppose his influence had much to do in the promotion of the enterprise. A joint stock company was organized, and by the stock subscribed, and popular subscriptions, funds were se cured to purchase ground and erect the building. An arrangement was made in 1855 between the joint stock company and Transylvania Presbytery by which the property was conveyed to trustees appointed by that body for the conducting a school, and Rev, John Lapsley McKee was elected principal ot the institution. This was the commencement of the most prosperous school days the town had known to that tion: the truths he spoke cncw-fro- m his great mind and hrrt,w and went directly to theof his hearers, and yet predated so clearly and so simply that a child could understand.

This condition continued until the beginning of the Civil war, when schools and churches alike, were in large part closed. Among the first trustees of the M. & F. High school were Judge T, T. Alexander, Gov. Thomas E. Bramlette, Timeleon Cravens, Dr. Samuel B. Field, Col. Robt. Miller and Josiah Harris. Rev. John L.

Conspicuous among 'acts of cruelty committed by the Germans, to their everlasting disgrace, the deportation from Mons is prominent. Official documents published by the committee on public information tell part of the harrow ing story. A vivid sketch of the deportations .from Mons, ordered by German authorities, drawn by a participant, may well & be cited here: "I will take the ISth of November of last year 1916. A week or so before that a placard was placed on the walls telling my capital city of Mons that in seven days all the men of that city who were not clergymen, who were not priests, who did not belong to the city council, would be deported. "At half past five, in the gray of the morning on the 18th of November, they walked out, 6,200 men at Mons, myself and another leading them down the cobblestones of the street and out where the rioting would be less than In the great city, with the soldiers on each side, with bayonets fixed, with the women held back.

So they were turned to the one side or the other. "Trains were standing there ready," .steaming, to take them to Germany. (You saw on the one side the one "brother taken, the other brother left.

"You saw the women In hundreds, with bundles In their hands, begeech-jln-g to be permitted to approach the 'trains, to give their men the last that they had in life between themselses and starvation a small bundle of clothing to keep them warm on their way to Germany. You saw women approach with a bundle that had been purchased by the sale of the last of their household effects. Not one was allowed to approach to give her man the warm pair of stockings or the warm jacket, so there might be some chance of his reaching there. Off they went!" John H.

"We have felt authorized by this saying, Mr. Minister, to extend our hands to you and to address to your country a last appeal. "We trust that in reading these lines you will feel at each word the unhappy heartbeeats of the Belgian women and will find in your broad and hu mane sympathy imperative reasons for intervention. "Only the united will of the neutral peoples energetically expressed can counterbalance that of the German authorities. "This assistance which the neutral nations can and, therefore, ought to lend us, will It be refused to the oppressed Belgians? "Be good enough to accept, Mr. Minister, the homage of our most distinguished consideration." (Signed by a number of Belgian women and 24 societies.) The United States government did not fall to respond to this touching appeal and to others of a similar nature. The American embassy at Berlin promptly took up the burning question of the deportations with the chancellor and other representatives of the German government. In an interview with the under secretary of state for foreign affairs, Mr. Grew was handed an official statement of the German plans, which Is, in translation, as follows: German Camouflage.

In order to ascertain such persons the assistance of the municipal authorities is required for the district of the governor general In Brussels, while In the districts outside of the general government i. e., in the provinces of Flanders, lists were demanded from the presidents of the local relief committees containing the names of persons receiving relief.

The Bureau of Nursing of the Lake Division, American Red Cross, Cleveland, points out that there is no form of service open to women more greatly needed than that rendered by the nurses of the country. The Red Cross Nursing Service for which most registered nurses are eligible constitutes the reserve for the army and the navy nurse corps. It is calling for many hundreds of highly qualified nurses for service abroad in our own hospitals and those of our allies. It is also calling many hundreds for service in the base hospitals in our cantonments. "We have," says Miss Roberts, "nurses enough to meet our present need, but in order to maintain our health standards at home during and after the war and to continue to care for our armies many more must be trained. "The need for skilled nurses during the next few years will be the greatest the world has ever known and the number of students in the spring classes now, being enrolled in the schools for nurses throughout the country should be limited only by the teaching facilities of the schools and by the clinical facilities of the hos pitals with which they are connected." The committee on nursing of the general medical board of the Council of National Defense has encouraged those hospitals possessing sufficient clinical material to increase their facilities for the thorough training of nurses and in many instances this has been done. Following are some of the advantages in nursing education and some points a young woman should consider in selecting a training school: Nursing not only pre1 pares for education variety of proa large fessional fields, but Is an excellent preparation for home and family life and for public service fh many ways.

I said I understood that the measures had been promulgated solely by the military government in Belgium and that I thought the matter ought at. least to be brought to the chancellor's personal attention in the light of the consequences which the new policy would entail. Herr ZImmermann intimated in reply that the foreign office had very little influence with the military authorities and that it was unlikely that the new policy in Belgium could be revoked. He stated, however, in answer to my inquiry, that he would not disapprove of my seeing the chancellor about the matter." Solemn Protest by United States. The formal protest of the United States was as follows: "The government of the United States has learned with the greatest concern and regret of the policy of the German government to deport from Belgium a portion of the civilian population with the result of forcing them to labor in Germany, and Is constrained to protest in a friendly spirit but most solemnly against this action which is in contravention of all precedent and those humane principles of international practice which have long been accepted and followed by civilized nations in their treatment of noncomba-tant- s in conquered territory. Furthermore, the government of the United States Is convinced that the effect of this policy If pursued will In all probability be fatal to the Belgian relief' work, so humanely planned so successfully carried out a result which would be generally deplored, and which, It is assumed, would seriously embarrass the German government" This protest was followed by those of the pope, the king of Spain, the government of Switzerland and other neutrals.

Wal-cot- t: BELGIANS FORCED (says: (On file In state department) Culiure Buttermilk More Beneficial as Drink; Has More oHhe Lactic Acid Culture buttermilk is more beneficial as a drink than the common variety, according to C. E. Buchanan of the dairy department of the Kansas State Agricultural college. It Is more likely to be free from harmful bacteria, and to contain more of the lactic acid which gives it its healthful properties. Lactic acid bacteria are present In the digestive tract and destroy other bacteria which might prove injurious to the body. The use of buttermilk as a beverage Is one method of Introducing more of these lactic bacteria Into the system. Whole or skim milk may be used to make culture buttermilk, but usually these are combined In equal parts. The milk Is first subjected to a temperature of 180 degrees for 30 minutes to sterilize it. It is then cooled to 70 degrees and a small amount of starter Is added. The milk Is kept at this temperature for ten or twelve hours until the whole is coagulated. Afterwards it Is beaten thoroughly or churned from three to five minutes and salted one teaspoonful of salt to each gallon. The buttermilk Is then cooled to 50 degrees, at which temperature it is kept ready for use. The starter Is made from pure lactic acid culture obtained from the laboratories where it is cultivated. The lactic acid bacteria are carried by means of sterilized milk powder made from the dried casein of milk. A small quantity of this powder is put into a small bottle of milk, which soon coagulates. The curded milk is used in a new bottle of milk the next day and this process Is continued through three or four propagations. These preliminary propagations of the starter are necessary to eliminate the peculiar taste of the original powdered milk culture. Camp Shelby, this winter, ex cept a few cold days.

"He went on to say, 'Starvation will grip these people In thirty to sixty days. Starvation is a compelling force, and we would use that force to compel the Belgian workingmen, many of them very skilled, to go to Germany to replace the Germans, so that they could go to the front and fight against the English and the French.'

"Ghent, October 12, 1015." "Slavery," said cardinal mercier. Cardinal Mercier's brief comment Is as follows: "The Injustice and arbitrariness of this decree exceed all that could be Imagined. Forced labor, collective penalties and arbitrary punishments, all are there. It is slavery, nei ther more nor less." Cardinal Mercler was in error, for the German authorities were able to imagine a much more teraible measure. In October, 1916, when the need for an additional labor supply in Germany had become urgent, the German gov- -' ernment established the system of forced labor and deportation which has aroused the detestation of Christendom. The reader will not be misled by the clumsy effort of the German au- - ' thoritles to mask the real purpose of ' the decree.

It meant that the German government would use any force In the destruction of any people not its own to further its own ends." Frederick C. Walcotjt, In National Geographical Magazine, May, 1917. A brief general view of the character of the deportations can perhaps be gained best from the report of Minister Whitiock , "ThejIepoHations began In October in the Etape, at Ghent, and at Bruges, as my brief telegrams Indicated. The policy spread; the rich industrial districts of Halnault, the mines and steel works about Charlerol were next attacked; now they are seizing men Th Brabant, even in Brussels, despite some Indications and even predictions of tlie civil authorities that the policy was about to be abandoned. The etapes wore the parts of Belgium under martial law, and Included the province of western Flanders, part of eastern Flanders, and the region of Tournal. The remainder of the occupied part of Belgium was under civil government. Pitiable and Distressing Scene. "During the last fortnight men have been impressed here in Brussels, but their seizures here are made evidently with much greater care than in the provinces, with more regard for the appearances. There was no public announcement of the Intention to deport, but suddenly about ten days ago certain men in towns whose names are on the list of chomeurs received summons notifying them to report at one of the railway stations on a given day; penalties were fixed for failure to respond to the summons and there was printed on the card an offer of employment by the German government,' either in Germany or Belgium. On the first day out of about 1,500 men ordered to present themselves at the Gare du Midi about 750 responded. These were examined by German physicians and 300 were taken. There was no disorder, a large force of mounted Uhlans keeping back the crowds and barring access to the station to all but those who had been summoned to appear. The commission for relief In Belgium had secured permission to give to each deported man a loaf of bread, and some of the communes provided warm clothing for those who had none and In addition a small financial allowance. As by one of the Ironies of life the winter has been more excessively cold than has ever known It, and while many of those who presented themselves were adequately protected against the cold, many of them were without overcoats. The men shivering from cold and fear, the parting from weeping wives and children, the barriers of brutal Uhlans, all this made the scene a pitiable "and distressing one. "It was understood that the seizures would continue here in Brussels, but on Thursday last, a bitter cold day, 'those that had been convoked were sent home. without examination. It Is supposed that the severe weather has moved the Germans to postpone the deportation.'' w52i,!2S2 shipments by rail during the winter season. The weather bureau Issues forecasts dally, and special warnings as occasion demands, giving information of expected weather conditions, Including frosts, cold waves, high winds and heavy rains or snow. During the winter season, officials In charge of nearly all weather bureau stations Issue daily what are known as "Shippers' Forecasts," giving the minimum temperature expected to occure within a shipping radius of from 24 to 3G hours from the station. These forecasts are published on postal cards. Careful watch of forecasts and "warnings will often enable shippers to avoid losses, either by expediting or delaying shipments or taking extra precautions to jprotect goods from Injury.
