Z T. Williams. The church organization has had a strong following in the county from its beginning. It has church buildings at a number of places in the county perhaps as many or more than any other denomination, and with a large membership in the aggregate. We have not been able to fix the date of the erection of the first Methodist church in Columbia. It must have been soon after the organization of the county. It was here in 1852 and was then an old church. It stood on the street back oi the Henry Miller residence lot, and at the time of the Thos. P. Akers' school, in addition to its services as a church, it was used in connection with the school, as the girls' department. The Methodist were pioneers in the county. Tucker, whose station wasuiear Casey's first station, and established about the same time, we are told in Allen's history, was a Methodist preacher. His station was attacked by Indians and he and others were killed. The Methodist have had churches and have maintained organizations at various points in the county during all its history. About the year 1802, George Breeding settled at what is now known as Breeding, and opened up a farm. There his son, Rev. James Breeding was born in the year 1803. He was licensed to preach July 27th, 1834. He was a local preacher of the church, but for more than forty years, he did not fail without good cause to occupy some pulpit on Sundays. He was much beloved by all who knew him, and exercised a wide influence for good not only in Adair, but also in the adjoining counties. This influence was not confined to his own church, but extended to all and to those denominations, with no church connection. Young couples when they arranged to marry called him in to tie the nuptial knot, and when death invaded the family, he conducted the funeral services. In the earlier days the funeral was not preached at the time of burial, but at some later day. A time was fixed, sometimes months after the death, and the funeral sermon was preached at the church. No minister in this part of the State conducted more of these services than did this good man. Many families in Adair, Cumberland and Metcalfe counties, regardless of their church connections, desired him to pay the last tribute to their dead. He lived and died where he was born, leaving to his family, church and friends, "A good name, rather to be chosen than The writer of this carries in his mind a very vivid outline of a sermon preached by this "Father in Isreal," sixty years ago, the only time he ever heard him, from the third verse of chapter 12, Ecclesiastes, "In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few; and those that look out the windows be darkened." old age painted by an old man.

Did he look at life and death as the boy views them? "A young man hopes that he will live a long time, which expectation an old man can not entertain." One is wishing to live long, the other has liyed long. Is there happiness and contentment in each state? One of the great philosophers and writers who lived before the Christam era, said: "Of all the periods of life, there is a definite limit, but of old age there is no limit fixed; and life goes on very well in it so long as you are able to follow up and attend to the duty of your situation, and, at the same time, to cre nothing about death; whence it happens that old age is even of higher spirits and bolder than youth." And further, "The nearer I approach to death, I seem, as it were, to be getting sight of land, and at length, after a long voyage, to be just coming into har- Hanna's Lustro - Finisfi. you do not know what an easy matter it is, and how inexpensive.

If a pagan philosopher could write thus, how was it with this aged Christian minister, as he stood in the pulpit on that Sabbath morning, having the assurance which the philosopher did not have, the words of the Great Teacher? "In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not I go so I would have told you. to prepare a place for you." Doubtless, he felt that age should bring no regrets to him who lives right, and that the death is not to be lamented "which immortality follows." He could say, jn the language of another writer of antiquity: "Let no one pay me honor with tears, Nor celebrate my funeral with mourn- ing." The United Brethren church has done active Christian work in the county. One of its early preachers was He was Rev. William Blair. born in Adair county, July 29, great riches." Another Methodist minister of the county who exerted a wide influence m his day was George M. Taylor, known in his latter years as "Father Taylor." He was born in 1790, and commenced his work in the ministry when he was twenty years old. He had the care of a large number ,of churches for fifty years, and was held in high esteem by all who knew him. He was Presiding Elder for .thirty years find died at the age of seventy-six- , 1 He was in the ministry about fifty years, and for the last twenty years of his life was Presiding Elder of the churches of the counties of Adair, Russell, Clinton, Metcalfe, Wayne and parts of Cumberland and Casey. His son, Rev. Wm. A. Blair, was also a minister in the same church. These two men, father and son, were high types of Christian gentlemen, and exerted a wide influence for good both as citizens and as preachers. Although this organization is not numerically strong in the county, it has been the means of 1803. The warm days for the past week has made our farmers hustle.

The British, according to their previously arranged plans, are falling back strategically. The German losses are much heavier than the Allies on account of their fierce offensive. Every feature of the situation looks encouraging for Allies. It is impossible at this time to tell what part the American troops are taking in the great battle, but occasional reports leak thru, which indicate that practically the entire American reserve force in training have been requisitioned and that when the smoke clears away it will be found that the American troops have played a big part in the greatest and most decisive battle of the war. President Wilson has cabled his congratulations to Field Marshall Haig on his confident belief, from all indications, in a sweeping and decisive victory for the British-French-American mission and its personally esteemed Executive Agent, and we have repeatedly refused to be a party to criticism that might tend to reactionary,, policies in the matter of conservation of our game and fish. But we fear very much that this Commission is fast getting into a political rut, a political subconsciousness of having in view only one aim, and that, the sole purpose of firmly establishing and maintaining thru a license fee system, a financial cabal that has more in view the support of a few blue grass families at the expense of J. Nimrod and Mr. Walton, than the propagation and conservation of the game and fish resources of the state. We only have some fears about this, our mind is not thoroly made up yet. Gratifying evidence of improvements on the Adair county end of the Campbellsville turnpike are due to the business like policy of County Judge Walter Sinclair, who has in the very beginning of his term of office found out that it is vital to Columbia and Adair county that this road shall be maintained in such a way, regardless of reasonable cost, as the needs of our J?

As Mr. Simpkins' income was $15,000 he had to figure out the amounts payable on each of the successive smaller classes of incomes in order to arrive at the total due from himself. He passed over the first class who must pa taxes, that is, single men making over 1,000. His calculation for married men then showed up as follows : First, they pay 2 per cent, (under the 191G law) on all income over $4,000, deducting 200 for each of their j children under eighteen years. In Mr. Simr kins' case this was S212, which lie j put down in the "payable column. He saw next that, under the 191i - 2r, 7jarried men pay an additional 2 per cent, on all over $2,000 with the same allowance for children. This added $232 to his "payable" column. He then observed that for every $2,300 jump In his income over $3,000 he had to pay a Surtax, the percentage growing larger with each jump. This was $230 more added to his burden. And on top .of all this came an "Excess Profits" tax of S per cent, on all "occupation" Income over $0,000, making $720 more. The total, then, he must pay was fourdollars. teen hundred and thirty-fou- r "Whew!" exclaimed Mr. Simpkins angrily. "There's young nenry who married Jake Johnson's girl, lie makes $2,000 and he doesn't pay 'a cent of taxes. I guess this is his war - as well as mine!" Thinking of young Henry Wilkins, he remembered that Mrs. Wilkins went every afternoon to make bandages for the Red Cross and that Henry, who was a lawyer, was aiding the Local Draft Board with Its questionnaires. "Well," lie admitted to himself, "that makes a difference." He thought next of Judge Willough-by- , whose income was about $3,000. "He only pays $20," commented Mr. Simpkins, not quite so angrily this time; and then a thought struck him ( and he sat up rigidly in his chair. Judge Willoughby's son had been drowned on the Tuscania when it was submarined with the loss of two hundred soldiers. "Judge Wllloughby gave his son to America," muttered Mr. Simpkins. He leaned forward suddenly and put his face in his hands. For a long time Mr. Slmpklns sat very still in that position. There was no Sound In the library except the ticking of the tall clock and an occa sional trill of laughter from the children skylarking upstairs. The square of light on the carpet gradually withdrew Itself through the window, and ?rst twilight and then darkness settled in about the quiet, white haired, sometimes irascible old man. Mr. Simpkins was thinking things which he would never afterward speak of, he was thinking things that were too sacred ever to be put into words. But some inkling of his thoughts may b be found in his rejoinder to Mrs. Simpkins when that placid lady came In and turned on the lights, and asked him whether he was ready for dinner. "Judge Willoughby's only son was worth as mucli as fourteen hundred dollars, wasn't he?" teiud thirty-fou- r Ir. Simpkins demanded of her. As his wife, who was not unused to his 'superficial irritations, watche'd him in mild astonishment, Mr. Simpkins limped out to the hall and took his cane old felt hat and from the hat rack. Letting himself out Into the foggy evening, he tapped his way down to the corner, and mailed his Income tax statement and check with his own hands. "Now, God be thanked," said Mr. Simpkins as the lid clanked shut over-himissive, "I can do this much for my conntry, anyhow." Mr. Slmpklns gazed .at the portrait I on the wall till his eyes filled with tears. It was a portrait of his father, Colonel Slmpklns, who had four times Seen promoted for valor during the vil War and had died bravely on the Id of action. Mr. Simpkins' throat hed now for hrn rnsons: First he reverenced and adored the memory of his father; secondly, his age and his eyes and his game leg wouldn't let him go to war himself. And as he observed the martial bearing and uncompromis ing' gaze of Colonel Simpkins he saw, lads of In imagination, 'the khakl-clathe new generation marching forth and crossing three thousand miles of sea to fight, maybe die, for liberty. Mr. Simpkins peered around to make sure that neither Bess nor John (who d The war trade board has authorized the payment of drafts that have been accepted, drawn on funds to the credit of a person who Is an "enemy" or "ally of enemy," or acting for or on behalf of. an "enemy" or "ally of enemy," or on which such a person appears as drawer or indorser, when such drafts are presented for payment in the United States : Provided, however, that when such drafts are collected for or on behalf of any person who Is an "enemy" or "ally of enemy," or person acting for or on belfalf of an "enemy" or "ally of enemy," the proceeds of collection shall be at once reported by the person making such collection to and be held subject to the disposition of the alien property custodian.

'J. Strawson, of the Home Service Bureau of the Civilian Relief Department, has opened an office at Camp Zachary Taylor, and his task is to ascertain any cases of disrtress of families of soldiers, and see that the families are looked after by the Local Red Cross Societies, in order that the family may be comfortable and the soldiers may be relieved of the anxiety and worry about the 'folks at home." Among the work- he will endeavor to undertake is investigation of delays in allotments and allowances, the matter of payments of installments and rsnts, a fixed amount in the purchase of a home, or in general, whenever any soldier is "up against it," Mr. Strawson will learn of the condition from the soldier and will immediately get in touch with local Red Cross chapters to administer the relief. That this work is very important is shown by examples of cases which have come up. In one case, a soldier's allowance was sent to Louisville, 111., instead of Louisville, Ky. The Red Cross representative found the soldier worrying and the family e in want. He notified the chapter of the Red Cross for relief, and referred the matter of correcting the address to the man's Company Commander. In another incident, a soldier last June married a woman with two children, and being unfamiliar with that provision of the law, did not ask an allowance for the stepchildren. These matters an win oe taken up, ana every complaint will receive consideration.
