Obituary. Word was received by the parents of Herschel Ford, on the afternoon of Oct., 15, 1918, "announcing his death at Fort Niagara, New York, which occurred at 1:15 a. m., on the above date. Herschel was a selective service soldier from Adair county and trained at Camp Taylor, he was sent to Fort Niagara, N. Y., for guard duty The news was not only a sad bereavement to his aged and infirm parents, but a loss to the entire family, as he was very industrious and economizing, he being the main support of the family, His last message to his father was not to worry about him, for he was all right. He liked the Military service and made an excellent soldier, from the letter written by his company commander to his parents. Extracts of letter. Fort Niagara, N. Y. Oct.- 22, 1918. - 4r:' '" J- ft Stopped In Transit. Last Saturday night a young man named Hudson and a young lady by the name Hatfield, both of the Russell Springs section, arrived, in an automobile, at the Jeffries Hotel, en route for Jeffersonville where they expected to get married. About the time they reached Columbia a message came to the Town Marshal here, from the girl's mother, telling him to stop the couple, that the girl was not of age and that she did not want her to marry, and that parties from the Springs were en route to this place, to return her home. Accordingly, the arrest was made, and in a very short time Russell county friends arrived and retuned the girl home. Young Hudson also went back, but he did not accompany the girl. Mr. N. J.

He died a peaceful death on the I5th at 1:15 a. m, In closing would say that Private Ford was an excellent soldier, universally liked by his officers and fellow soldiers, and his unfortunate death is a source of genuine sorrow to all of us. The heartfelt sympathy of the officers and men is extended to the family. Sqt. Charles M. Sabins, U. S. Army, Capt. U. S. Guards. Persons who have been afflicted with the flu, and who are now convalescent, should be very careful and not expose themselves, as a backset might follow. The men who have been afflicted should wear their overcoats, even if the weather is not pinching cold, and the women should don heavy wraps. A little precaution might save life and doctor's bills.

The new law, forbidding the sending through the mails of papers not paid for, went into effect November 1st. Please notice the date on the label of your paper. It it is dated Oct. 1918, or any date before that you will not receive next week's paper, unless you renew. This is not left to our choice, but the law takes charge of papers the same as sugar, wheat and other things.

It's you It's the real you' I've always remembered:" "You seem to remember my character very well, Eleanor," said Mark, trying not to relent, and having an uncomfortable feeling that she was an adept at hoodwinking. "Well, you know, you paid me a fairly long visit at the Misses Harpers' school, Uncle Mark." "You were nothing but a schoolgirl then." "Schoolgirls can judge character as well as grown-ups.- " "And so you think you know me, and and you're not altogether disappointed?" asked Mark, smiling at last. "I'm not disappointed in you at all, if you aren't in me. Dear Uncle Mark, people don't really change iieyer, never ! .Only they learn to adapt themselves to their environments. You are just the same as ever just the quiet, sensitive, chivalrous Uncle Mark I've always dreamed of." "Well," said Mark, "I see that there are hopes that I shall regain the little ward whom I've always thought about. And, of course, I ought to have reflected that your environment has been very different from the one I could have given you." "I wish I'd been with you, Uncle Mark," she answered impulsively. "Why didn't you keep me when you had your chance, if you wanted me? Oh, dear Uncle Mark, that was so like you, too giving up to others. And you never sent me that photograph !" "I've never had one taken since, Eleanor." "But I've got you yourself now," said the girl. "So you mustn't give mo up any more, no matter who seems to have a better claim on me. Will you promise me that?" Mark knew now for certain that ho had found his own. "I promise," he answered. "Because, you know, I've been very happy with Colonel and Mrs. Howard. But this isn't the best and biggest part of me that you see here. If I could have had my way I'd rather have been living a more useful life somewhere somewhere where I hadn't quite so many things that I want. Colonel Howard gives me everything he thinks I want. But you see, Uncle Mark, something is missing. You remember what we talked over about my being the regimental mascot?" Mark nodded, watching her face all that's over and gone. There isn't any regiment now, anyway. All the old people have gone out of it. And we were three years in San Francisco, you know. And Oh, Uncle Mark, I wish we could have those days again, when I used to dream about my father and and " "I know, my dear," said Mark. "I've always secretly hoped that I should know, some day. But I've almost stopped hoping, except for one thing that I've never told anybody. You remember what I said to you about a man watching me?" "He doesn't watch you now, Eleanor !" She nodded. "He has come back," she answered. "He's older and grayer, but he's the same man. I've seen him here, in Washington. And I've never dared to speak of it, even.to Colonel Howard, but I know it's not a delusion, Uncle Mark." ( "And you think he has some connection with your father, Eleanor?" asked Mark. closely. "Well, r ?f ; 'T'yirAjj rri1p. n" exert all his will power to keep himself In check. Mark had rented a little furnished apartment In the Northwest section, off Pennsylvania avenue, and he had found the desert more companionable. One night he felt at the end of his powers. That was after a grilling day in the war office, one of those days that sometimes come In Washington toward the middle of September, when everything is as sticky as the asphalt sidewalks. It had been a day of evil portent beColonel Howard, who had sides. seemed of late to reflect Eleanor's coolness in some measure, had greeted him with a wry face when he came in. "The devil's to pay, Mark," he said. "Draw up your chair. There's a leakage in the department." "What?' cried Mark. "Things are getting known for instance, our dealings with the shipping people. They've found the exact number of ships we've requisitioned. You knew whom I mean by 'they.' " Mark nodded. The cosmopolitan influences in Washington, whose ramifications extended to the ends of the earth, or, at least, across the Atlantic, were busy In every drawing room extracting news, the tiniest and least reliable of which was not despised, since many such single Items make up a coherent story. "The Brigadier's wild about it," continued the Colonel, pulling at his mustache. "And it seems Impossible to detect how the leakage occurred. It must have been through the shipping companies, of course ; yet they couldn't have pieced the thing together without concerted action, which is out of the question. Let's go through the papers." They opened the safe and went through them one by one, but nothing was missing. "Damn it !" growled Colonel Howard. "I've been through this before, Mark you know that. In that case there was a traitor at work. We found him. In this case there can be none, at least, in the war department. And I've told the Brigadier I'll answer with my place for discovering where the leak lies." He closed the safe and strode off into Kellerman's room, to return with Kellerman, looking angrier than before. "What are we going to do, Kellerman?" he asked. Kellerman pursed out his lips. "Well, Colonel, you know as much about it as any of us," he answered. "There's always been two of us present night and C3 I girl. "I think, my dear," said Mark deliberately, "that it isn't the same man. It stands to reason It can't be. Why should he have watched you all these years and never spoken to you? No, Eleanor, I think you've had this idea so long that you have misinterpreted I mean " "I know what you mean, Uncle Mark. Well, it doesn't matter. And now I must go back to Mrs. Howard or they will be wondering what has become of me. But we've picked up our memories, haven't we? And I'll see a lot of you, Uncle Mark, before you go to the war?"

I the Colonel no rest after he told us that he was trying to get you for the war office. I believe she had always had a sort of romantic recollection of you, and looked upon you as a sort of guardian, although, of course, it was a fortunate thing for he and us and you, too that Colonel Howard did succeed in inducing you to let us take her. She has been everything to us." "Of course," said Mark mechanically. "It would have been a terrible life lor her out In the desert," sighed Mrs. Howard. "I think that you were very wise, Captain Wallace. And what a dreadful burden and responsibility you you would have had!" This time Mark did not attempt to answer.

I'll vouch for you, Wallace will, I presume, vouch for me, and you, I presume, will vouch for Wallace." The sinister look on his face affected Mark more disagreeably than ever.

We're doing our part what more can we do?" "Come along and tell the Brigadier that," suggested Howard. Mark, nothing loath, accompanied him to the General's room. But the Brigadier was more furious than Howard. "I don't know how It happened, Colonel, and I don't care!" he cried, thumping the table. "No great harm has been done so far, and of course none of the departmental clerks can be suspected. But it's got to stop, and out how it originated." we've got It was on that night that Mark felt at the end of his powers.

Had it been necessary that he should have treated Mrs. Howard and Eleanor boorishly, to protect himself? He put on his hat and went out, meaning to pay them a visit, or, at least, to walk toward their house while making his decision. He had not decided by the time he reached Massachusetts circle, and. as he stopped in doubt he smw a man across the road, to-fin- d - ".""- - " !r.. r.ouo- , it " he meant to stay there. But, as Mark started toward him, the man seemed to take fear, and shambled away. Something In his gait brought back to Mark's mind the recollection of the man whom he had seen outside the Misses Harpers' school. And he began to follow him. It was a role th$t fie had never played before, but justified. In his mind, by the necessity of discovering the fellow's Identity. Without any very clear intention In his mind how he was to accomplish this, Mark made his way after the solitary figure, keeping well behind It. Jt soon became clear that the man, although he looked like a tramp, had a definite objective. Mark pursued him toward Pennsylvania avenue, until he discovered that he was nearing the least desirable part o Washington, whose location, so near the residence of the chief executive, has always been the wonder and scandal of visitors. He was In one of those streets that start bravely in the city and detjouch g Into the land in that Intermediate and hardly reclaimed region bordering- the Potomac.

Every department brims with interest; but the editorial features and the historical sketches especially to a sojourner from the Kentucky fold. It is a source of pride to realize that my native Commonwealth still heeds the call of its country as the voice of God as she has done in every struggle for freedom. During the Revolution Kentucky was part of the Virginia doman, as Tennessee was a portion of North Carolina. In a recent German drive, the sons of the Old North State, with New Yorkers and scions of the Volunteer State, acquitted themselves nobly; proving that valor and heroism are not confined to any section, state The Puritan or nationality. blood that the South styled "damyarikees," shed glory on escutcheon of the North the dashing Cavalier proved that this was not a waning prestige.

And they Will Have Caused No Sleepless Nights at Any Time. Few persons purchasing the present issue of Liberty Loan Bonds realize that if they continue to hold the bonds to maturity the total amount of interest they will receive from every $100 bond will be approximately only $15 less than the original $100 they paid for the bond. This, however, is the case, as the per cent interest and bonds bear 4 run to 1938, 20 years. Each year's interest is $4.25, so that at the ond of 20 years the total will be $85 on every $100 bond. Then when the time of maturity comes the owner gets hack 'his full $100, thus receiving $135 for his original $100 payment. And during the years of the bond's ilife he has an investment which will never keep him awake nights worrying. He is as certain al-I- t is possible to be certain of anything in human affairs that on interest dates the Jnter-iewill be paid, and that in 1938 the "United States Treasury will have money ready for paying the principal. Further, during the period that the government is his debtor, the bondholder will enjoy the satisfaction of knowing he has done a patriotic duty, in addition to the concrete and tangible satisfaction derived from knowledge that he possesses the best investment into which money was ever put. At every and all times during the loan term the bond is as good as the day he bought it or will present it for redemption in the coin of the country. Fine for Heirs. In what better form would it be possible to pass on wealth to children and grandchildren than in Liberty Bonds. It is Impossible lo conceive of a more safe and desirable legacy than one of government bonds. Provision has been made that any of the present issue of bonds which have been owned by any person continuously for six months prior to his death, and wOiich constitute part of his estate, shall be receivable by the United State3 at par and accrued interest in payment of any estate or inheritance tax imposed by the United States under any law, present or future. In framing the act authorizing the loan Congress endeavored to include every feature calculated' to make the bonds popular with the great mass of people, and useful economically in years to come. On amounts under $5,000 the bonds are free from taxation, so that the small holder is assured of getting every penny of his interact Go Address, W. E. NOE, Columbia, Ky. a. Real 1 you R.

In this State I have read in some mangy, provincial sheet about something that occurred in the "wilds" of Kentucky, and have conversed with yokels to whom the vision of a d shirt was a mystery; who imagined that a pistol is a pistol is a necessary article of masculine attire in Kentucky, and that a deacon, steward, or an elder felt that God was glorified if he shot a foeman as he hard-boile- cur in Kentucky. She is bad but Georgia and South Carolina gives Kentucky room to register as the hot bed of Quakerism. In these states and Louisiana, the delectable sight of a babecued nigger is of frequent occurrence. When I first came here, nobody native to the manner born, had a good word for the memory of Abraham Lincoln; and manumitting the slave was regarded as a disaster. "Freeing the nigger," ranked with robbing a bank and killing the brave cashier as tbe James and Younger contingent the heroic R. A. Martin at Columbia. As a digression, permit me to chronicle an incident of that sad catastrophe. Dr. Hector Owens, now deceased, victim of cholera, was out of town when the tragedy occurred. Upon his home arrival, he asked if the town made any resistance. When informed that Ike Cravens fired two ineffectual shots; Bill Baker, Billy Walker and Clint Winfrey 1 y rode Ijome from communion ser vice on .his ox sled; and that a horse race or a chicken fight with gaffs, was the sequel of a Sunday School and Christian worship. The man who felt insulted because abusiness man addressed him a typewritten letter, and responded, "I can read writin' be G " was merrily classed by every jokesmith that reveled in jokes contemporary with William the Conqueror, as from Ken- tucky. Also, the ancient pleasantry a-b- a man seein an auto, and later a motorcycle, said, "why tried to make a show of resistance, but owing to "unprepared-ness,- " either out of amunation or guns out of repair, he said: "Oh h , a nigger with a bow and arrow could come here and rob this bank." But Columbia did nobly. Very few banks that these marauders robbed did so well. Ike Cravens was a boy at the time, and this is to pay him a tardy tribute. Harking back to feeling of hostility of Southerners against emancipation of the Negro; I never expected to see a fine, medallion picture of Lincoln in Shel by court house, nor to hear the panegyrics that are pronounced to his memory by ministers and 81 m spellbinders of political aspera-tion- m -- Elida, N. M , my teacher of bygone days, for a service flag with 4 stars. She is 'of chival-rou- s and valient lineage. Her brother, Leslie Combs Hurt, was a gallant soldier, and every son of Lucien and Rollin Hurt are doing prodigies of valor. I tell some of this blustering crowd around roe that we don't tell what ought to be done for democracy, we merely fight. A livery stable or soda fountain loafer, proclaims himself valient as Roosevelt, or Billy Sunday, and I don't argue the matter. As a matter of tardy justice, permit me to pay a tribute to the late Jim Polk Dohoney. He and the late William Stewart were among the keenest witted men I ever met. Both were d and to me were especial friends. For some rea son, both were poor financiers, which seems the lot of nearly all humorists. A man is usually esteemed according to his bank account: even some of our ministers regard the soul of a capital ist with the Pearl of greatest Price. A fellow with one cow, one hog, no fine raiment and no bank aocount, is classed as having a very dudimentary spark of divinity; while a Shylock is regarded as one of the anointed. Columbus was called a crazy sailor, John Howard Payne never had a home; and Lazarus probably starved at table of Dives. No wonder "The righteous are cast down on every side while the vilest men are exalted."

Walker, Dr. John Clemens, in town, and in the country, Dr. Jas. G. Taylor, Dr. U. L. Taylor and Dr. W. B. Montgomery. These men all belonged to pioneer families of the county or State, and were prominent in their profession. Dr. S. B. and Elijah Field were sons of John Fields, whose name is found on some of the earliest county records. Dr. Owens was a great nephew of Simon Kenton. Dr. Walker belonged to the family of the name that emigrated here before the organization of the county: Dr. Clemens was a nephew of Jno. M. Clemens, the father of "Mark Twain;" the Taylors were sons of the pioneer Methodist preacher, Rev. George Taylor; Dr. Montgomery was a grandson of the pioneer settler, Francis Montgomery, Sr. Dr. Samuel B. Field was a delegate from Kentucky to the convention of 1860 which nominated John C. Breckinridge for President. The doctor was an unusally fine conversationalist, and could al ways secure attentive hearers.
