Capshaw, who has been on the Jamestown circuit since last fall, tendered his resignation to Presiding Elder S. G. Shelly and it was accepted. The reason for his action is, that he enlisted in the Navy, as an officer, and will be sent to a training school at Chicago, 111., where he will remain six months. At the expiration of that time he will take his place on a naval vessel. To the good people of Russell county he tenders his grateful thanks for their He The Chautauqua. The Institute. The Adair County Institute closed its session last Friday at the noon hour. It was largely attended throughout and 'many interesting talks were delivered by visitors, many of whom were dally in attendance. Our local Superintendent made no mistake in employing Prof. A. C.Barton, of the Bowling Green State Normal, to conduct the institute. He is an educator of wide reputation, and he imparted much valuable information to the teachers, and If his instructions are closely followed, every teacher who was in attendance will be greatly benefitted, and their pupils more rapidly advanced. Inspiring music, led by Prof. Joel Darnell, was rendered at each session, and it developed that their were many melo-diovoices among the teachers. The gathering was a, complete success and Superintendent Noah Loy is to be congratulated. ns Mr.-Jas- . a, Mrs. Ray Montgomery, who spent Mr. E. C.

Since America decounclared war on the try of the Huns he has been preaching the gospel of cleansing by "fire and sword." But somehow or other he wasn't content with preaching alone, although he has a wife and three children. His patriotism was of the higher order than the mere telling of another how to do things. So yesterday he appeared to the navy recruiting station, 412 South Fourth street, and applied for enlistment The officer in charge asked him frankly if he had arranged for the proper maintenance of his household. The preacher replied by stating that he and his wife had talked it over and as she was an experienced teacher she was going to teach college while he to-day ing Green, returned home last The Courier-Journ- al has the follow- 'fought the good fight."

"When people ask me, How shall we teach our children to love nature?' I reply: 'Do not try to teach them at all. Just turn them loose in the country and trust to luclr.' It is time enough to answer children's questions when they are interested enough to ask them. Knowledge without love does not stick; but if love comes first, knowledge is pretty sure to follow. I do not know how I first got my own love for nature, but I suppose it was because I was born and passed my youth on the farm, and reacted spontaneously to the natural objects about me.

Fruits for home use can be canned with corn sirup or refiners' sirup in place of part of the sugar ordinarily; used. Sirups with a distinctive flavor add sweetness, but also, of course, change the flavor of the canned fruit. A little experimenting in handling fruits should enable a housewife to develop various combinations of fruits and sirups which are pleasing to her own family. Caution: Fruits canned with plain water or with other than sugar sirup should not be sold until the jars have-bee- n labeled to comply with local and federal requirements as to description of contents. How to Can Fruit. Boil empty jars and lids for at least fifteen minutes before you fill them with the fruit. Rubber rings just before being put on the jars should be cleansed by dipping for a minute Into a quart of boiling water In which a teaspoonful of cooking soda has been dissolved. Take the jars out of the water bath, drain quickly and fill, while still hot, with the fruit prepared as described below. Fill the Jar with hot sirup or hot water. Put on the lid but do not seal absolutely tight, so as to allow for expansion Inside the Jar. Put the partially sealed jars, while still hot. Into a hot water canner provided with a false bottom of slats or wire mesb. Do not put cold jars into hot water or boiling water into cold jars they'll crack. Boll (process) the filled jars for the time specified hi the recipes, counting from when the water In the canner begins to boil again.

FOR SALE Save Sugar. Before the war Germany, Austria-Hungar- y and Russia produced 57 per cent of the total supply of beet sugar, d of the entire sugar about supply of the world. With the withdrawal of sugar exports of these heavily producing countries it is easy to see why the allies' supply of sugar has shrunk. The one thing we can do In this country is to increase our production and decrease our consumption, to change our sugar habits until the war Is over. In practically all dishes requiring sugar some other sweetening may be substituted. The sweetening power of sirups varies somewhat, so that will have to be taken into account. Honey is about as sweet as sugar, but when it is used the liquid In the dish will need to be decreased. Maple sirup is sweeter than sugar and corn sirup less sweet. When substituting sirups for sugar decrease the liquid Dried fruits of various kinds, 'when added to any cereal or pudding decrease the amount of sweetening one-thirone-fourth. Those luscious berries, peaches, cherries, figs, and other fruits, so abundant this summer, can be made to supply many desirable desserts for winter, and with little trouble. Practically all fruits can be canned at home in ordinary canners or in a large vessel with tightly fitting cover. In fact, fruits are easier to can than most vegetables. They are prepared more quickly and need to be boiled in the jars only once and generally for a shorter time than is necessary to can other products. Canned fruits preserve most of the delicate flavors and succulence of fresh fruits and are the nearest substitute for fruits fresh from bush or tree. They are very valuable In the winter diet. They supply acids and mineral substances very useful in keeping the body in condition. Do not cook or handle fruits in galvanized vessels. The fruit acid attacks the zinc coating and makes the product dangerous to health and spoils its color and flavor. Fruits Can Be Canned Without Sugar. Don't let cost or difficulty of obtaining sugar deter you from canning quantities of fruit this year. Fruit can be canned without sugar. Instead of using sirup, simply fill the cans with clean hot water and process in a water bath. The fruit will not spoil, but, of course, will not have the fine color and flavor which it would have if packed In sirup. The use of even a thin sirup in canning fruits will give a more attractive finished product than can possibly be obtained by canning in water. If sugar is not available, it will be well to consider drying the fruits instead of canning, since a good dried product is far better than a poor canned one. The importance of canning In less water should be stressed this year because of the high cost of containers.'

Guess this will be all for the The government recently closed its books for the fiscal year the first fiscal 3ar in the war and has opened new annual records. Cabinet members and other heads of departments will make reports to President "Wilson covering their stewardship of funds and responsibilities for the year just closed. In government financial history the year will go down as a period of expense hardly dreamed of a decade ago. More than .$12,600,000,000 is the actual outlay since July 1, 1917, to meet the multitude of big bills run up for the army, the navy, the shipbuilding program, airplane construction, coast defense requirements, other government activities, and the needs of the allies ,for American loans to finance purchases of war materials in this country. In peace times the government spent less .than $1,000,000,000 annually. With the addition of the. $1,200,000,000 which the government spent in the three months of war preceding this fiscal year the war's cost in money to date has been $13,80.0,000,000. "War activities are now draining about $50,000,000 a day from the nation's public treasury, and in June the running expenses were greater than ever before, though loans to allies dropped to less than in any month since April, 1937, when the United States became a belligerent, days to Tear uid Kentucky Lady, Yvno lens now one After a Few Do3cs of Black-Draug- it Ky.

There is peril in being a whale or a porpoise In the north Atlantic these days, according to Nelson Collins in the Century. If you are a whale, particularly a spouting whale, you are apt to be mistaken for a submarine; and if you are a porpoise, you .are apt to be taken for a torpedo. There is many a shattered carcass and abashed . gun crew. In the phosphorescence of even winter nights a porpoise just under the surface can make an experienced lookout have a moment's suspense. The line of white is a little narrow and a little high for a torpedo, but in the first moment a lookout isn't given to exact measurements. The white at bow, and stern on a phosphorescent night is conspicuous evidence of a ship, though it is a question how plain It would be through a periscope at about Its own level. From the decks of the ship Itself or from the deck of an emerged submarine It flashes plain. If It could only be camouflaged along with the smoke. And on such a night in the zone there is the eerie sense of more than one subma rine that has worked her way along In the white wake of a slow ship, keeping tab so through the night and waiting for dawn to sheer off and strike. That Is why, as dark comes on, a destroyer Is apt to drop back from the side of the ship and lurk along the wake, seeking its prey also. I remember one velvety black night. Suddenly a great white trail shot across our bow from port to starboard and just a few ySrds ahead. If a porpoise is too narrow to make a torpedo trail, this seemed too broad, but deep enough. It was the wake of a destroyer that had cut across in a hurry. a tt--4z irft-tii-4rr-ftti&- 'tt'tt THE NEW MINUTEMAN Qr-q- --t-t Money Orders Good in France They Are Drawn on the "U. S. Army Postal Service and Only Domestic Fees Are Charged How to send money to a soldier in France in case of need,has puzzled many parents and relatives of members of the American expeditionary forces. There are several vrays, but a certain and easy one Is to use United States postal money orders. They can be cashed readily and easily by any payee. Here Is the way to do it; according to an official statement by Postmaster W. B. Carlile of Chicago : "Money orders issued in the United States payable to members of the American expeditionary forces are made out on domestic forms precisely the came as if they were drawn on offices in this country and domestic fees only are charged therefor. Such orders are all drawn on 'TJ. S. Army Postal Service' without indicating the name of any post office abroad. "The orders are, of course, delivered to the remitters to be mailed by them to the payee precisely the same as any other mail would be addressed. Jt Is necessary, however, in any such case that the remitter furnish the full military description of the payee, that Is, the company, regiment and branch fit the service to whichhe is attached. "There are many branches of the U. S. army postal service and a money farder drawn thereon Is payable at any of them. It should be explained, however, that the postal service in France has been militarized, which means that the distribution of the mail has been taken over by the military authorities. The post office department distributes and pouches the mail in the United States, but the war department carries It on Its transports and distributes Jt to the soldiers abroad. The entire administration of the money order ,cervlce still remains, however, under the post office department. "The secretary of war has explained that owing to the fact that the .military units were moving constantly from place to place, the changes being concealed from everybody except the particular commanding officer, it was necessary to let the mall follow the distribution of supplies. No doubt the soldiers at the front to whom a money order is delivered will turn the order over to the company mail orderly to have it collected and the amount thereof given to him.

The thunder and the whirling motion have given rise to two theories of the derivation of the word, as to whether it is derived from the Spanish "tornada," a thunderstorm, or from the Latin "torn-are,- " to turn. A cyclone, in the definition of the weather bureau, Is not necessarily a windstorm of great velocity, but rath er a widespread storm that moves with no great speed. Its width may cover several states. This cyclone, or area of low pressure indicated as "low" on the weather map gives conditions essential to tornadoes. Many cyclones never develop a tornado, but a tornado never develops without the cyclone, and almost Invariably the tornadoes occur In the southeast quarter of the low area. About 120 cyclones pass across the United States each year, moving in a general way from west to east They are of great benefit because they induce movement of surface air from the south and southeast, and the rainfall that makes the great interior valleys a rich agricultural region is dependent upon these southerly, nine years old, asked her mother: "Where is pap going?"

ABATR COT-NT- NEWS 7, KETCHES OF ADAIR COUNTY. w f Historical and Biographical Will that be of Interest to all Readers of the News. BY JUDGE H. C. BAKER. No. 27. The merchants of the early days of the county bought their goods in Philadelphia, and shipped them through the country on wagons. They made annual trips to the city to make their purchases, traveling horseback. In can be imagined, that the arrival of a new stock of goods was quite an event to the community. It is said that one of the first record books of the county, a large one, tvas brought by one of the merchants on his horse from Philadelphia. The book was very much needed, and the officials could not await the delay of the wagon train. The older citizens can remember when at a later day the goods of this county, and of the counties back , of us, were shipped by wagons from Louisville. The old wagoners prided themselves on their six horse teams, and the loads which they could haul over the roads, and their reputation extended through several counties, The tobacco raised in the county was shipped down Green river to the New Orleans market. There were raftsmen who devoted their whole time to the business, and were experts in guiding the rafts down the stream. They would return home a foot through the country often walking fifty and sixty miles a day. At this time Greensburg was a large shipping point, and one of the most prosperous towns in the State. It drew to it a large number of enterprising men who accumulated fortunes for that day. For more than half a century after the county was formed, most of the clothing on the farms, was manufactured at home. The loom and spinning wheel, and flax wheel, had their place in every household, and were in constant use, The wool was picked and carded by hand; then followed the making into rolls, the spinning and weaving, and after that the cutting and making of garments. The shoes of the family were home made. When a beef was killed, the hide went to the neighborhood tanner to be tanned, and returned in leather in the fall, and the tallow was saved to be ' moulded into candles to furnish light during the winter nights. It was a time when the shoe-- y maker was abroad in the land. He went from family to family making the shoes, remaining at one place until the work was done, and then moving on to another, until his circuit was completed. Somestitnes when the family was large, as was frequently the case when there was a lot of negroes, he would be engaged in one family for several weeks. It was expected that a pair of shoes would suffice for one winter. No provisions was made for the summer, as it was not fashionable for boys, es k.J i, pecially small boys to waer shoes during the summer months. However, there was evolution in foot gear, as in other things. The time would come in the life of the boy, and did come, when he was taken to 'town, and was permitted to put his feet into a pair of red-toboots. Later on came the luxury of "store clothes," but, usually before this came, he was well up in his teens. The duties of the mistress of the family, especially if it was a family in which were negroes, were more exacting then than they are now. She had of necessity the oversight of all domestic affairs, and there was much to be done. The younger one had to be taught their several duties, and directed in their proper discharge; clothing for summer and winter had to be provided in due time; the sick had to be ministered to even if other hands were provided to do the work, she was the presiding genius of the establishment, and burdened with its management. The cooking was done in the open fire place, and the chief cooking vessels were the oven and pot. skillet and frying pan. The introduction of the "reflect-or- " marked an epoch in biscuit baking, but to use it a roaring fire was required. The fire was kept over from day to day in coals, or started from flint and steel. On the farm, the little wheat that was raised, was cut with the reaping hook, later with the cradle, and threshed by hand, or by horse treading it out. When horses were used, it was sometimes done on barn floors, and often on the ground prepared for the purpose. The bundles of wheat were arranged in a circle of sufficient size. The horses were pub on it two abreast, usually a boy riding one horse and leading another, four to six horses being employed, and thus the wheat was knocked about until it was separated from, the straw. While the horses trotted, men would remove the straw, etc., and place fresh bundles in the circle, and thus the work would go on through the day. Afterwards separated the the hand fan-mi- ll wheat and chaff. The grinding of corn and wheat was done on We the water and horse-millhave in our mind now, the picture of an old horse mill which was very familiar to our childhood on which many hundreds of bushels of wheat and corn were ground. In the dry season, when the water mills cculd not run, grain was frequently brought from adjoining counties, and the old mill would be kept busy day and night to accommodate its patrons. The horses worked below on the ground, and the grinding was done on the second floor. On this floor was the bolt er which separated the flour into grades, and from the bran. This was run by hand power. It is a question whether this old process has been improved upon, especially as regards the grinding of corn into meal. p mmwmmmmmwmmmmmmmm mmmmwmmmmmmwMmmmmm m m m m m ' REASONABLE PRICES We Now Have a Full Stock of Binders, Mowers, Rakes and and Repairs, at Reasonable Prices.
