Running a newspaper is an up hill business and especially has it been since the Euperopean war started. When the United States declared war against Germany all commodities went up, including print paper and every thing else necessary in the publication of a newspaper. At one time it looked like we could not survive, but in spite of all difficulties we have not missed an issue, and in this good year of 1819 we will endeavor to give you a better paper than any year in the past. Prices have not yet declined but we are living in hopes that they will before many months. In order to keep the presses going we earnestly ask all who are behind on our books to call and make payment, as we need ready cash to con duct the business. Do this and you will feel better and you will also receive the thanks of an indulgent publisher. People, especially, who live away from Adair county should heed this admonition as itcost a third more now to send statements.

" Important Improvement in Snow Sheds for Railways Important improvements were Introduced by the Southern Pacific railroad in the design of their snow sheds, says Popular Mechanics Magazine. One of these consists of telescoping units having a maximum length of 96 feet, which make it possible, to divide long sheds into isolated sections as a means of protection against the spread of fire, or for other purposes.

Dear Editor: Owing to the fact that all the officers and men of the American Expeditionary Forces have been requested to write a letter to their fathers on this day, and owing to the fact that my father is dead, and on account of the number of mothers who have sacrificed sons on the battle field of Europe, I am going 10 try to give a various summary of my service overseas. The unit that I am serving with, Company "F" 352nd Infantry, of the 88th Division, arrived at Liverpool in the latter part of August. It was about 3:00 o'clock in the morning when our ship docked. It seemed very strange, the harbor was lighted with blue lights, which threw a weird outline on the buildings on the shore. There was a large tower to the left of us, and many strange buildings. We landed about 8:00 o'clock. The very first thing I saw was a mounted policeman. These men wear a very picturesque uniform a long coat, and the moat distinguishing feature being their cap, which sets back on their head, held in place by a chin strap. We were received very cordially by the English. A band played some of the latest American "hits," and "biscuits" and hot coffee was given to us before we left the depot. The railroad seemed to be just a little more than a plaything to who were accustomed to U3, travel on the rolling palaces of the States. The cars were very small, but the speed attained by these trains was marvelous. Our unit detrained at the old city of Winchester, and proceeded to Winnall Down Camp. This place was very pretty. It is situated on hill, and commands a veiw of the surrounding country for many miles. This camp was a "Rest" Camp, but very little rest we had there. Arrived there at about 6:00 in the evening and was ordered to leave there at about 3:00 o'clock the following morning for Southampton. At Southampton I had the first markings of the war. In the dry docks there was the Standard Oil Steamer "Andonia" which was torpedoed and also another steamer that had been captured from the "Boches", and converted into an Allied vessel. I do not at the present time recall the name of this steamer. There were also cannon that had been wrecked at the front, and one in particular I remember had blood spots on its barrel. At about 5:00 o'clock we boareed one of the small channel boats. This boat had as many men on board as it could carry, but as the trip was a short one and no mishaps occurred, we were satisfied. The following morning we awoke in the harbor of L'Havre. This is a very old port, and the harbor was full of small fishing boats. After debarking from the boat we proceeded to anoth- er "rest" camp on the outskirts of L'Havre. Our stay in L'Havre was very short, we being there for only two days. Then came our first jolt. We were marched down to the train, and this, train was not the' Pull so-call- activity. The Germans seemed eMence Phone 13 B Baikiej oell to be a little timourous about N. MURRELL showing themselves.

Our next stop was down in the Central part of France in the small town of Les Laumes, in the Department of Cot d' or. This town is situated in the heart of the Central Hills of France. The people were friendly, as it was the first time that American troups had been quartered in that vicinity. However, our stay in this town was limited to but two days. We then proceeded by march to Meetrenux. In this small village, we were billetted in a Chateau, which had not been occupied by the owner for some time, and was a splendid place. The court in the neighborhood of this Chateau was beautiful, there being many hedgerows. I might mention that this Chateau was the property of a countess. There was also a count in this town. After about two weeks stay at this little village our unit proceeded by rail to our training area in the vicinity of Belfort. The trip to Belfort was most in teresting.

Not more than 20 counties were able to carry out the The Food Administration wishes to specially caution every one that we have no sugar to waste. Lifting of restrictions does not mean that the supply exceeds the demand; it means, rather, that the American people have proven their ability to limit their usage without compulsion. If the old days wasteful customs of should be resorted to, the good accomplished through six months of careful conservation would be overcome. Sugar is obtainable in sufficient quantities, but we have no surplus. Eat plenty, but wisely and without waste. Sugar has been selling at an average of ten cents a pound.

A relief ship was recently sent from this country to Archangel by the American Red Cross with 4.GO0 tons of drugs, food, soap and other supplies for the use of the Allied soldiers and needy Civilians in that part of Russia. The vessel's cargo was valued at $1,511,233. Later, another ship was dispatched carrying 200 tons of similar supplies furnished by the American Red Cross, the total expenditure for the two shipments amounting to over $2,000,000. Major C. T.

ErigraiHl. Replacing the Orchards. The American Red Cross has given $10,000 'to assist in the replanting of trees in the orchards laid bare by the Germans. With this sum 40,000 fruit trees will be replaced In the devastated orchards of Belgium and northern France. Illll SAVE Drugs and general hospital supplies constituted the greater part of the cargo sent from America. While the chief concern of the expedition was providing comforts for American and Allied lighting men In that part of the world, all efforts were bent to get relief to the Russian soldiers who were returned from German prison camps at the rate of about 15,000 a week. The condition of these men was pitiable. It has been estimated that 90 per cent of them were tubercular. In addition to drugs and food, almost every Imaginable article on the list of supplies sent over was for the comfort, convenience and pleasure of the Allied soldiers. Just a few of these articles were playing cards, razor blades, jewsharps, mandolins, phonographs, ukaleles, accordeons, cameras, skates, wigs, whiskers, grease paints, footballs, snowshoes, slippers, hockey outfits, indoor baseballs, moving picture outfits, Bibles, prayer books, boxing gloves, games, music, books, cigarettes, candy and dried fruits. The need of prompt relief for the Inhabitants of towns along the coast of the White Sea and on the Kola peninsula, many of whom were facing starvation, was found to be imperative. Scurvy had broken uut among the people at these places, adding to the general distress. The towns to which the relief expendition was sent are virtually Isolated from the outside world because of the treacherous coast line, shifting SJind bnrs nnd uncharted waters. An exceptionally early frost even for that part of the world, ruined the harvests, which were expected to Improve conditions. Statements, printed in Russian, explaining the work of the Red Cross, were distributed among the inhabitants. 16,000,000 BUSHELS LOST IN OF WHEAT THAT FORMERLY WAS THRESHING Farmers, Urged by Food Administration, Provide Seven Extra Loaves of Bread for Every American.

This result, accompanied by corresponding savings of barley, oats, rye and other grains, Is shown by reports from 33 grain states to the U. S. Food Administration. Other states, although not prepared to furnish definite figures of conservation in the grain fields, report greatly reduced harvest losses. This rural food saving achievement, accomplished In scarcely six months' time, was In direct response to requests by the Food Administration, which asked farmers and threshermen to reduce harvest losses from about 34 per cent the estimated average In normal times to the lowest possible minimum. Countr.v grain threshing committees carried Into every grain growing community the official recommendations for accomplishing the results desired. In numerous instances drivers of racks with leaky bottoms were sent from the fields to repair their equipment and frequently bad order threshing mjjchlneg, rjere stopped until the cause' of waste was removed.

Household expenses on the farm are very intimately associated witfl of the farm itself. The farm normally supplies much material would become a household expense. The household, in turnvery often furnishes board for farm labor, which would otherwise be a fixcm expense. Merely from the standpoint of keeping track of household expense?-arelated to the farm business, household accounts are desirable and sltmtl& serve to supplement and round out farm accounts. There are two methods of keeping a record of household expeiidretnvs-Onis to record the purchases or money paid out without classifying tii expenditures.

MINUTE GUNS BOOM SALUTE. We regret to learn & Burton that Bryant intend to sell their planing mill plant, and more so since finding out that several parties are figuring on buying and removing it from the County. This plant is badly needed here in Columbia, and should be bought and operated at by home capitalists. Why not form a corporation and buy this plant and continue to operate it this place? The two planing mills here we are informed have not "been able to take care of the trade for the past two years, and the building prospects for the future for this and adjoining counties are very bright. This mill should not be moved from .Columbia. All that is needed is just a little nerve and cash to prevent it. This mill has been in operatioo about three years and under the management of Edwin Hurt, who has had charge of the plant. The firm has enjoyed a prosperous business, which has extended from Burkesville to Lebanon, and has extended into Green and Russell counties. Mr. Hurt is regarded as one of of the best machine men South Louisville. The workmanship on lumber put out by him in this plant has been practically perfect. Let us again suggest that some of our own county men buy this plant and continue to operate it at the same place, where nothing is necessary but to get up steam to keep the business going. In the ninth year of her volunteer services for the redemp tion of Kentucky from the blight of illiteracy, Mrs. Cora Wilson Stewart, president of the Kentucky Illiteracy Commission, expects to see 100,000 adults taught to read and write and made masters of the rudiments of arithmetic. This gigantic task, for which the commission is planning a gigantic campaign, will bring Kentucky up to the next Federal census year free from illiteracy. Sixty-eigh- and one guns, France's finest, thundered . their satule, in one minute intervals, as the long line of open automobiles, carrying the Wilson party and che distinguished French representatives that had met them at the station, slowly proceeded thru fiower and streets to the Parisian "white house." It was a triumpha procession marked by endless cheers from fully two million men, women and children lined along the curbs. Mr. Wilson'sl face was wrapped in smiles thruout this procession. The beautiful woman who sat beside him in one hand an American flag, and in the other a magnificent bouquet handed her by the reception committee at the station, attracted no less admira tion than the President.

TURN THE BOYS' THOUGHTS HOMEWARD, SAYS FOSOICK, ASKfH6G0-0PERATI0- H I m m yy (Special.) Washington. Just before leaving for France to superintend the demobilization activities of those organizations which recently took part in the United War Work Raymond Campaign, B. Fosdick, Chairman of the Commission on Training Camp Activities, was interviewed with regard to the present situation of our overseas forces. "The problem presented by the gradual demobilization of more than two million men three thousand miles from home is one which will tax all our social resources," said Mr. Fosdick. "It is above all a morale problem, and It must be faced as such, with of families and the full friends here in this country, if it is to be solved successfully. Every one who has a son, a brother, must help. "While the war was on our boys were fully occupied; they were still filled with the spirit of adventure, looking forward rather than back. Now, however, the fighting is at an end. They are going to remain, most of them, many months doing work which "will be neither exciting nor particularly interesting. They will get ' lonesome, bored and terribly homesick. "The $170,000,000 raised In the recent United War Work drive is to be used precisely to bridge over this d by providing recreation and amusement. But no amount of mere money expended In such a way will be enough. What these boys really want is not diversion, but human interest and sympathy. These things expressed In letters from home will warm their hearts and create a home atmosphere around them, even while they are aDsent from the family circle. "Such letters may be a very necessary sheet anchor to windward In the case of some boys. The thought of some one waiting for them, counting on thein, will, more than anything else, make them hold back and think twice before plunging Into situations which might mean harm and unhap-pinefor them. "We have raised the cleanest army in the world. We have kept It clean. We hope to bring it back as clean and strong as it was when it left us. But while we believe our soldiers will stand the present test the hardest of all in some ways as bravely and successfully as they have stood every other test of their manhood and endurance, It Is our duty to give them all the help we can. "This, as I have said, can best be rendered by means of letters which will begin now, at once, not only to satisfy their home longings, but to turn their thoughts from tasks already accomplished to the long years of life uhead of them." -pe-Tioss Suggestion for Mother's Letter. Son of Mine: They're sending you home to me at last Through all these months of waiting and longing I've been wearing a star for you and holding my head high and thinking wonderful thoughts about you. I've watched you through ocean mists and dreamed anxious dreams. Yes, and cried a little, too, but not when people could see. And now you're coming home. Oh, it seems too good to be true. I've just read your letters again. They say so much more than yon ever thought when you were writing them. Just happenings that's all most of the lli'ngs you wrote about were to you. But to me they said you were facing the biggest tiling in life, facing it bravely, as I should want my son to face it You were offering your body and your soul for a thing bigger than you or me or America.

It's only now, when the fighting is over, that I can let down a little and be just your mother, just the woman "who loves you better than anything else In the world and is so glad to know you're coming back to her that she doesn't care who sees her cry. Perhaps for some of the boys who have stood with you so finely through these trials the fighting is not yet all over. The fighting I mean is that between a man and himself, and for many of them this will be the hardest battle of all. During the long days and evenings of waiting before they can start for home thoughts will creep into their minds which will be hard to resist. There will be times after all these months of action when the longing for change and for the companionship of women may lead them into associations which will spoil their home-- , coming and cause them shame and humiliation, and even perhaps make them unfit to receive the love that awaits them here. You, dearest boy, are just as human as your comrades, and feelings like these may come to you too. I don't ask you to crush them. They are natural, and they only prove that war has failed to dry up the well spring of your emotions. I ask you only to recognize them when they come and to control them with the line strength you have gained while fighting for the ideals and principles of America. Just remember that many joyous years of life are ahead of you and that the risk of spoiling them and the love that will fill them Is too tremendous to run for a short hour of seeming pleasure. Many of the boys who will come home with you have no mothers t write to them. Some of them may think that no one cares what they do. But somebody does care. America cares. And the girls they will marry some day care.- - And, oh, the difference It will make In their lives If they will just remember that there Is always somebody, always I Help them to" remember. Help them to come home clean and fine. Don't let them spoV everything now. They have been, so splendid. If you think this letter will help them give It to them.
