Before and Since the War. . A Good Citizens Passes Away. Livestock Values Increased. Livestock on farms in Kentucky January 1, 1919 was worth $177,396,000 compared to $158,587,000 January 1, 1918. This was due partly to increased numbers of all stock except horsesi which decreased slightly during the year, and partly to greater value per head of all kinds of livestock in Kentucky compared to prices Jan. 1, 1918. The percentage of increase in value was greatest on milk cows and sheep. Horses are very little more valuable than in January 1918, the average price being $104 this year compared to 8101 last year. The average price of milk cows is $72 a head compared to 861 in January 1918; other cattle $42.-5- 0 compared to839;JJhogs 816 a head compared to $14.50 last year, sheep 813.10 a head compared to $11.20 last year; and mules $127 compared to 8122. During 1918 hogs on farms in Kentucky increased in number from Entertain at Dinner. Miss Sallie Baker and Mrs. W. D. Jones were hostesses on last Thursday evening in the beautiful home of Judge H. C.

Trl-Stat- e, to-da25-to- To the older citizens of Adair county the subjicfc of this writing was He was reared on Green river, and until a few years ago he followed trading and farming. His residence was a home for every person who called, and he was never known to charge a man for lodging and edibles, but gave every caller the glad hand and was sorry to part from any persons who visited his hospital residence. Until recent years he was full of life and delighted in telling jokes, and when a crowd was around him it was kept in an uproar for hours, and to this day you can often hear younger men relating an Elzy Damron story. The Lord was good to him. He had been an unusually strong man, seldom the slightest complaint coming from him The 25th of last October he was eighty-nin- e years old. He lost his wife many years ago, but he reared three daughters and one son. Mrs. J. H. Young, this place, Mrs. L. T.Neat, Russell Springs, and Mrs. Annie Downtain, Oklahoma, Mr. Azure Damron. who is in the West. He loved his children and his children were exceedingly kind to him. The end came at 10 o'clock Monday morning, his children and grandchildren being at his bedside. The funeral services were conducted at the Christian Church, of which the deceased was a member, by Eld. Z. T. Williams this, Tuesday morning, at 10 o'clock. The interment was. in the city cemetery, many friends were present. well-known. But few people know it, but nevertheless it is a fact, Adair county is in better fix financially now than it was before the war. For instance, before this country entered into the foreign war there were something close to 8400,000 on deposit in the four banks of Adair county, and while the war was in progress the county bought more than 8400,000 worth of Liberty Bonds, Thrift Stamps and Red Cross subscriptions, and there are in the four banks something close to 8800,000 on deposit, and the size of the amounts in vaults are growing, the employees of the banking institutions busy from the opening until the closto-da- y dwelling, Acres; large very large barn, silo, granary, implement shed; strong limestone land; 25 acres bluegrass pasture, 10 acres in timber, 20 acres wheat; good fencing, plenty of water, fine orchard; on pike, 9 miles from New Albany; 8125 per acre; been offered 8115; one mile to 126 Interurban ing. This increase in cash capital has come from the sale of mules, cattle, hogs, poultry, eggs, butter, tobacco and all other farm products. As will be readily seen the farmers have realized good prices for every tbing grown upon the farm, and at this-- , time the producers are making preparations for large crops the coming season. In talking to a gentleman, the other day, who watches closely the out goings and the amounts coming in, he said: "There are but few better counties in the State than Adair. She keeps her head above the level, and at all times ready to meet all just demands with the cash. In the meantime farm lands are advancing and new comers are here weekly seeking to buy homes. According to quality, land is cheaper in Adair ' y than. any other county in the State." court-hous- James Montgomery Perryman, of Pellyton, this county, died Jan. 17, 1919. He was 78 years and 7 month of age. He was the son of George Washington and Emily Perryman. He was born and yeared in Russell county near Montpelier. He was the eldest of a family of ten children, 5 boys and 5 girls, 7 of them have preceded him to the land beyond. Three sisters remain and all three live in Texas. G. W. Perryman, who became a noted Baptist preacher, and who died in Winchester a few years ago, was his youngest brother. The subject of this sketch taught in the public schools of Russell and adjoining counties for a number of years, and taught one year in Kansas. He served as a private in the civil war in the 13th Ky. Calvary. He was married to Miss Mary Bell Pelley, Feb. 17, 1876. He located at Pellyton, this county, aud remained there to the end. Three children were born to this union, two sons and one daughter. Luther, the eldest, represented the county in the Legislature some years ago. Maiwin, the second son, is now in Emery Univer sity finishing up his Theological course and 1b preaching for a church near by. Elizabeth married Mr. John Henson, of Dunnville, Ky. Montgomery Perryman was a member of the Masonic iraternity since 1861. He was a member of the Methodist church for a number of years, was a devoted Christian, an exemplary citizen and held in high esteem by all who new him. He was in feeble health for a number of years and for the last 6 months has been confined to his home most of the time. He was a great reader, and a man well informed on the general topics of the day. He made the race for County Superin. tendent some years ago against Matthew-Taylor and if he had not been running against the most popular man in the county would likely have been elected. As it was he was defeated only by 60 odd votes. His body was laid to rest by the Masonic fraternity at Tabernacle church on the 18th. Peace be to hiB memory. Z. T.

They will leave with the best wishes of this community. Mr. Loy has not done any farm work for a number of years, but he knows how to till the soil, and he believes that he has an offer he can not afford to turn down. If perchance he and his wife should become sick for their old home, little Doris, their bright little daughter, the pride of Columbia, will cheer their spirits, and will be the one who will bring happiness and contentment. After Asa gets rich he can return with his family to Columbia and spend his dollars with th friends of his earlier days. r o, l-2- 3t pas-turere- st l-2- l-2- 16-3- 2t 16-2- 15-2- -- one-hal- - 3t flrs't-clas- - al - ,1 gj - 2t Jjjffr Jgp- - the-regula- r I and-Fenc- e 2 ....

Cushman, New York, are speakers, they have still enjoyed an opportunity to visit the exposition grounds where for weeks past work has been in progress preparing for the tremendous celebration for which it is expected that more than 100,000 Methodists will journey to Columbus from all parts of the United States. The spacious buildings already provided by the state of Ohio are being r edified and extended to meet the peculiar needs of the Methodist Celebration. This will visualize to pastor and laymen the work of the church at home and the work of the church abroad. Here will be seen, with all the fidelity and detail of a world exposition, the natives of all the countries in which the Methodist church operates as a missionary force. Here, too. will'be set forth all the work in this country. Essentially the entire world of Methodism will be brought to Columbus and displayed in its original colors and with all the circumstance and surrounding of its various habitations on the glooe. Two special pageants are being planned and many lesser ons. A climax of the celebration will be a symbolic representation of the drawiag together of all the nations of the earth through the goapel of Christ.

In Bourbon county last week, a crop oO 8,000 lbs sold for the recordibreaking average of $67.50 per hundred. It is an every day occurrence in many markets or the State for tobacco to bring $1.00 and up per pound. These high prices will undoubtedly be the incentive to planting this year the largest tobacco crop that has ever been known in Kentucky. Prices were exceedingly iligh last year, very satisfactory to the growers, and there would have been a very much larger crop for marketing this season, but for the scarcity of labor and patriotic appeals incident to the prosecution of the war, urging the farmers to grow foodstuff ' that our armies and allies might be well provided without which the war could not be won. Famine conditions in many parts of Europe and Asia will call for a patriotic appeal again, to raise food crops in abundance, but the love of gold, since the war is over will cause a large number who can, to go in mostly for tobacco. While prices of all kinds of tobacco are high without precedent, many of our farmers here in Adair county are making ;the mistake of going entirely for Burley tobacco. We have had an innumerable number of calls for Burley seed and have not been able to procure of enough seed to supply these calls. A good portion of our land here in Adair and where men are planning to plant Burley alone is not at all adapted to nor will grow a type of Burley that will ell for as good a price as types' -- OAK: iJ 3.00 CUT 8 ft $2.25 perlOO d, ii ii I i' - r- I ! m flio mooror nnmnlofolir 6'OINTo ECONOMY They are better They are cheaper The one piece suit is here to stay, the same as in underwear all progressive dealers have them.
