"Mr. Christmas Greetings. Memorial Momument. A few weeks ago we suggested that a fund be raised for the purpose of purchasing and erecting a monument to. the memory of the Adair county soldiers who lost their lives in the war. At that time we did not suggest a plan for raising the necessary funds, but we have one now, and we believe that it would work and no donor would hardly feel the loss of the amount he would pay. It is this, the plan having been given by the l, Campbellsville; Let an organization he formed in each school district of the county, a Chairman appointed, and he to appoint a committee to solicit fnnds After the entire county has been canvassed, name a day to meet in Columbia, figure on the amount raised. In this way we believe the money would be easily secured. But few persons would refuse to give something for this noble purpose a monument for our heroic dead. If this suggestion meets the approval of others, say so through the News and let the work of raising the funds commence. News-Journa- Cane Valley Items. Mr. J. G. Sublett was up from the Valley a iew days ago and from him we gather the following happen irgs about his town: Jas. L Vaughan and Josh Johnston, who were in the army, have been dis charged and are now at home. Also Bob Hancock. ' W.H. Hutchison has bought of C. R. Dudgeon the latter's brick residence, on Main street, and has removed to it. Mr. Hutchison sold his place to Rollin Todd, of Taylor county, who has removed to it. There are seventeen acres in the tract. Mr. Todd's father, J. P. Todd, will reside with him . 'Squire W. E. Hancock fell from a wagon a few days ago, fracturing several ribs and has been confined to his room since. Archy' Workman sold his personal property a few days ago and will remove to Mlssissslppi and farm with R. K. Young, who left for that State ten days ago. The sale of Junius Edrington, deceased, drew a very good crowd and everything sold well. Frank Buchanan sold his farm to Robt. Logan, who lives near Columbia for $7,500. He then went to Nelson county and bought a $15,000 farm and has removed to It. Mr. Logan will be given possession of his farm the first of January. Farmers are about through gathering corn and stripping tobacco. Messrs. S G. Banks and A. H. Judd, the two oldest men in Cane Valley, are able to be about,.but they are quite feeble.

By the end of October it reached Petrograd. During November all of Russia became affected and cases reported in Paris, Berlin and London. By December all of Europe was in the clutches of influenza and also a large area of the United States. The back of the epidemic was not broken in Europe and the United States until March, 1890, but it continued its progress around the world.

The money raised from the sale of this stock will continue to be used, as it has been used in the past, in the development and expansion of 'the company's properties. Over $825,000.00 of capital raised from the sale of stock has been invested in properties and equipment in the twelve months of the company's existence. Its outstanding position today as the leader among the independent oil companies operating in Kentucky may be ascribed to following this policy of expansion. Results accomplished to date are but a forerunner of those which may be expected to ensue from the further development of the company's concededly valuable holdings, and expansion in the field of its operations through increasing the size of its refining plant, now operating, and the purchase of additional producing properties. In view of progress to date "McCombs" stock at $2.00 per share is an extremely attractive investment opportunity with the probabilities of unlimited enhancement in value. ;! m (..'

We don't know for sure, and we can't know. I've never believed It I wouldn't ever dare to let myself believe it" "You found his papers," said Kellerman. Nobody answered him. Eleanor went up to Mark and raised her white face to his. "Tell me what you think, Captain Mark," she pleaded. And once more Mark was mute. She read his face as if by Inches. She turned toward Kellerman. "Now will you go?" .she asked. Kellerman saluted her with mock formality. "I'll go," he said, "but he's spent his chance.

"There he is !" he cried, pointing his hand jn triumph. "I knew he'd come this way." Hers here, sir !" he cried to some one outside the orifice. The stretcher bearers set down their burden on a ledge of the wall. Into the little place strode the General. His appearance there exercised a paralyzing effect upon them all. Kellerman was the first to recover his He saluted stiffly. "This man," he said, pointing to Mark, "is the prisoner who was to have been executed this morning." The General, without a word, strode toward Mark and clasped him by the hand. Kellerman gulped and moved toward the entrance for the last time. The General turned. "Halt sir I" he commanded. "Colonel Howard, will you have the goodness to go to the man on the why, I beg your pardon, Colonel ! Not badly hurt?" "Nothing much, sir," answered the Colonel, attempting to make the passage. The General gave him his arm and assisted him, and, when he stood still, placed one arm about him to steady him. "Do you recognize that man?" he asked. The Colonel stiffened;.

They made his name one of execration. Still they were not satisfied. With devilish Ingenuity they sought to cover their tracks by making it appear that Hampton was still carrying on his trade, still selling government secrets. You .see why, Colonel?" he continued, turning to Howard. "Because they, themselves were continuing their vile work, and the new leakages had to be accounted for." Kellerman, ghastly white, leaned against the brick wall; he was fumbling nervously in his tunic pocket. "I suppose, sir, .that you are accusing " he began. "Be silent, sir ! Gentlemen," he continued, addressing Mark and the Colonel, "you are interested in knowing what happened to this man Hampton. He could not rid himself of the belief that justice, though slow, Is pretty sure. He had faith In God. Unfortunately he had less faith in himself. Am I wronging you, Hampton?" he continued, addressing Hartley. "No, sir," muttered the man on the stretcher, feebly. "He wishes me to tell the whole story. He went to Cuba and flung in his lot with the rebels. He became disgusted with their means and methods, obtained a pardon from General WeyMH and took up his residence in Santiago. The outbreak of the war surprised him there. He knew that Santiago would fall, and he had been warned that he would receive short shrift at the hands of our people. "He longed for death, but he had two things that kept alive the desire for life. One was his child, the other the desire for vindication, which had be- his child. She had gone to San Francisco. In his despair he went to Washington, he sought out Hilda Morsheim, who was still plying her trade, and begged, as he had never begged anyone, that she would vindicate his name." There was a stillness as of utter death inside the little cave. "Sh saw in him one of those useful spies such as her organization used, broken men with inside knowledge of conditions. She used him, held out promises, broke them; in his despair he made himself a slave to her and and her confederate, forgetting his manhood and what he had been. Time and again they broke faith with him. He had just realized that he had nothing to hope for from them when Captain Wallace appeared oh the scene." "Yes, he was a rotten dog, sir," said Kellerman, with the ghost of a smile. 'fs'is on such evidence that you pre- that come a monomania. He tried to escape Into the jungle.
