On Sunday the 4th Inst., Martin Roe and Miss Vila Eeece, Holland Harvey and Miss Vina Eeece, the yung ladies being sisters, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Reece, Sparks-yillleft their community for Nashville where they were married Monday afternoon. They went from home to Lebanon in an automobile. On their return, ail four in the machine, an accident occurred while coming up Muldrough's Hill, and it is a miracle that they were not all killed or seriously hurt. When, they reached the third curve on the hill the radious rod broke on the right side and the car pitched over the incline and sllded to the bottom, turning over when it reached the level. Neither one of the occupants got a scratch. This indicates that the young couples start their married lives in good luck. Both the young ladies were former Students in the Lindsey-Wilsoe, n.

We point with pride to the fact that the Republican party, has since its birth, been thoroughly American, and has stood on the broad principle of protection, ' of defense and progress, and that during the late World war, it furnished more men, more money, and were more loyal in their efforts to maintain the National integrity, and to bring the war to a successful conclusion than were their opponents who were in control of National affairs. 3rd. Resolved that we oppose any League of Nations that will surrender the right of this country to be governed by our own citizens. 4th. Resolved, that we condemn the present system of taxation, which places too large a percentage of the burden on the land owners as unfair and .unjust. 5th. Eesolved, that we condemn the reckless extravagance and waste of the peoples money in both State and Nation, thereby creating a necessity for the enormous increase in Taxation with which our people are burdened, and call on the voters to rise in their might and correct the existing evils with their ballots at the coming November election. 6th. Resolved, that we endorse Hon. Edwin P. Morrow for Governor of Kentucky, and instruct our delegates to the State Convention, at Lexington to cast the vote of Adair county for him as the Republican nominee for that office at the coming November election, and on all other questions that may come before said convention to cast the vote of Adair county as their best judgment .may suggest. Sells in Mississippi. who returned from Mississippi last Friday night, reported Saturday morning that a company was on a deal to buy Mr. C. S. Harris' farm of 840 acres and that he believed that the deal would be closed. Later in the day he received a dis patch from Mr. Harris, saying that he had sold at $80 per acre. He purchased it some months ago at 360 per acre. These figures shows Mr. Harris' profit to be 816,800. All Columbia was glad to hear of this lucky deal, and would be glad to hear that Mr." Harris and family would return and buy a Kentucky plantation. Mr. Allen Walker, The Soldiers Chance.

In most respects the war Is over. The peace conference is concluding ito labors. Its decisions will doubtless be final. J3ut the war isn't over for a lot of people. How about the million Americans who are still "over there?" Is the war finished for them? Aren't they just as much a part of the Amer ican army, just as much our defenders jas they were when they formed a part jof that living wall that stood between s and the Hun bayonets a year ago? These men are on duty in France. 'Thpy are on duty In Germany and in Russia. Their task was to stand guard until the treaty is signed. They Pwill stay longer if necessary for they are soldiers and have sworn to remain at their post of duty and under orders. They are a part of the world forces that are watching until order is 'restored. And the war isn't over for the mil lions of Americans in America until we have met all its demands that we can meet. "We have a big part of ths responsibility here. There is a duty that must be done at once.

Europe must have time to come to her senses afte: the raving mania that has been hers for more than four years.

But whatever may Jhard-wobe necessary we may rest assured that lour own welfare and that of the world demands We can't shirk our part of the work. From the day we entered the war we .were obligated to it, pledged and to bear our share of it. We can inot permit Uncle Sam to get the of a "quitter." We know that he needs several billion dollars more jto carry on what he has undertaken, it Is our part to furnish this money.

If there ever was a nation that" was abls to hnv hnnfe tti jAmerican nation is able. I r It is mighty easy and very pleasant to consider that the war is over and done and that there is nothing more n I It iMvj2f' NE year ago the Hun dMron had planted his feet over all Middle Europe. He held, in his hooked claws all of Europe south from the Baltic to the Swiss Alps, southeast to the Bosphorus, and northward almost to the White Sea. He had dragged his slimy way through the blood of Belgium till he stood on the shores of the English Channel, facing his foes in England. He had reached well nigh to the Persian Gulf and had linked the Turk to his holdings. And he had long since looked across the Atlantic and spied out the land In America. The dragon had crept softly here and tiTere about the earth for forty years. He had intrenched himself In South America and in Mexico. How strongly Is shown by tne fact that even after the old" empire of the Hun has gone down in blood and dust, the followers of the kaiser are still standing by the old regime, still plotting and scheming through Latin America. And we know what outposts the Hun held here in America. We know what we should have known and taken into account ten, yes, twenty years ago. We know the efforts that were made to make the Hun language the required language in the public schools of some of our American states. In the public schools, mind you, of" the English speaking United States of America. We know now better than we once did the meaning of the many German societies in this country. We know what service" they rendered and attempted to render to Hun Land when the war first broke in Europe. The trail of the dragon was very plain In the United States during the first years of the war and we know tuat the spirit, never died in many Huns living in America. Even the breaking of the old empire failed to stamp it out entirely. E DID a good deal during the war toward blotting out the trail of the dragon in the United States. Had the war lasted longer we would have done far more. Do you recall that in your earliest childhood you were taught somewher, somehow, that the tail of a snake never dies until sundown comes no matter how flat the serpent's head was crushed? That was a childhood superstition and yet we all know that a snake's tail wriggles for a long time after the serpent has been put out of the way of doing any more harm. And the dragon's tail still wriggles, the tail of the Hun dragon is still wriggling in a good. many places in the world outside of Berlin. Prussianism may be dead, but there is a suspicious liveliness, a menacing wriggling here and there over the earth that will bear watching. Bolshevism is one of the forms that this menace, that this movement, is taking. Germany is wrestling with it and it is raising itself here and there over the world. Spawned in Germany, it is of the dragon's brood. It has overcome RusbIb, the Russia that it was loosed upon through German influence. America wants no more of Bolshe-vfsthan it does of anything else that Is German. It bears the "Made in Germany" on it It carried that mark when it was exported from Germany into Russia in the carpet bags of Lenine and Trotsky.

A chap named Pete Garrlty used to travel a southern Illinois and Missouri territory. Sometimes he got over into Kentucky and Tennessee. About every body knew Pete for he was a"reg-ula- r fellow." Also he was a good salesman as salesmen went in those days. Good Indian? We'll all say he was. All of us who knew and remember him. However, as to financial matters and personal responsibility, Pete was as the brutes that perish. He was "with out form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep." One night he was having a little poker game in his room at one of the St Louis hotels. He had been out and busy all week and he figured that a little relaxation was coming to him. He made such headquarters as he had in St Louis. The telephone bell rang. It was a call for Pete, all right He went to the phone and listened a minute. "Tell him I'll be right down," he said. "And I'm out of the next deal," he added'. He wasn't gone long. In about ten minutes he was back and opening another pot as pleased as a boy with new a pair of copper-toed- , old-tim- e red-toed, , .

There is nothing that would please Germany, new and old, better than to have the American Victory Liberty Loan fail it would put new life in the Imperial schemers all over the world. The dragon tail would wriggle mure powerfully than it does now. For the dragon died hardf if he, Indeed, be dead now. There are millions of his followers who would' welcome the chance to put him on his feet again. To utterly slay the dragon, to put an end to the menace of the Bolshevists and to shove war so far into the future that it cannot threaten the peace of America, the Victory Liberty Loan must be subscribed. To prevent the distressing after effects of war and to maintain AnSerican prosperity at its present height and level, the Victory "Liberty Loan should be pushed quickly to successful completion. THE UNRETURNING. "Tailor of mine," he gave brief' explanation. "Owed him about a hundred. Gave him my note for 30 days." The game went along. Somebody "copped the pot" and it wasn't Pete. The cards were dalt again. "Thank the Lord there's another bill that is paid," said Pete. Of course Pete was a poor financier. He had that reputation and, after all, he was just living up to it But when we come to pay our debt to Uncle Sam we can't afford to adopt the Pete Garrlty system. When we come to pay our debt to the lads who have done our fighflng for us, who fought for liberty over there, who fought for our and Jcr our national honor and the"goocf opinion of the world at large, we can't afford to adopt that system. Have to Pay Sometime. If we do we will hear from it in the future. We can't shove such debts as we owe to the nation over into the dim and distant future. Of course Pete's note eventually came due. And there came a day also when that debt had to be paid. He could pay it after action in court or he could iiay It oh the nail when it really came due and' when it should have been paid. it had to be paid some time. Now that we have a chance to pay our debts to Uncle Sam there will be no unpleasant aftermaths. We have a chance to hand him the money in exchange for a bond of the Victory Liberty Loan issue. And after a good many .days that bond will reach its time of maturity and we will be. able to colect for all that it cost us by simply presenting it at the window of most any bank.

Bond holders and holders, we will all be paying the taxes that will make possible the payment of the obligations of the United States, in the interim. But only the bond holders will profit by the interest that will be paid on the loaned money. Even the financial fools like Pete Garrity ought to be able to get along on such a system as that Then wny is it that brainy, capable, sharp folks who know something about financial affairs are hesitating about doing theirj part by Uncle Sam. It is something of a mystery. As a matter of plain fact, they won't' hesitate. The brainy American is going to do his level best to get in on these short-ternotes of the Victory Liberty Loan.

It was plain to all men." fcfe-- 4 We have chosen our way now and we are past the cross-roadAll the talk of arbitration was useless and senseless. The matter had to be fought out to near the f bitter end. Autocracy lost, democracy won. The decision had to be absolute and we made it absolute. We forced Germany to accept the abject terms offered only to beaten nations who "have violated the fundamental rights of free mankind. The decision was final and we must keep it so. Consider that situation for a minute. The world was lined up on two sides. One one side stood Germany, "Junker-domand "Kultur," the menace of German domination of "the mailed fist" and the "shining sword." On the other stood all that humanized civilization has gained in the long, long centuries of struggle. The allied hosts, gathered there with the Americans and other free peoples of tne earth. No wonder that men spoke of "Armageddon" and prayed the world round for victory against the menace. There had never been such a meeting. It was like the gathering of the hosts for the last great struggle, like that battle that the gloomy myths of the Norsemen picture as the ending of the world. We are past that cross-roa- d of history. We have chosen the better way at the cost of untold lives and unPearl Black, of Renox, Cumber- counted billions of dollars.

We have given pledges to our allies that we will aid to the end and we will aid. The full benefits that we fought tor, that we won, that we now hold must be secured. That is why the war is not wholly ended yet, that is why we must still rajse money, still float Liberty Bonds and keep up our part of the work. Russia must be watched, Germany must be transquillized and the score of little new nations, the little old nations of Europe that are reborn and '' are coming back into the world must be stabilized and taught to walk alone. That is one phase of the job that confronts the triumphant allies. Of course it will mean a tremendous outlay for each of them. America was behind hand In coming into the battle, but she came in time to turn the tide. We must now live up to the very best of our old traditions; we, must step up to the line of duty and stand there unflinchingly until it is done and' worthily done. We must make good once more in the Victory Liberty Loan, which is also called the "Thanksgiving Loan." It is both a "Victory Loan" and a "Thanksgiving Loan." The victory has been won and we are offering a thanksgiving every day of our lives that the fighting is over, that the guns no 'longer roar and that there is no more shedding of blood'. s. trations, are made of the highest grade of steel, and are splendid specimens of art, and the possessor will have a handsome token of his coun " try's acknowledgment for service rendered.

The names are to be sent in to headquarters on proper uianks by the county chairman so that medals can be sent to" each worker to whom the certificates have been Issued. These certificates and blanks will be sent to county tnairmen within a few days. VICTORY OR SHAME? ANSWER IS UP TO YOU Whether America shall emerge from the world war with an untarnished record, with glory resplendent, or with our glory smirched with shame, will depend entirely upon her citizenry. So far our accomplishments both at home and along the firing line have won the plaudits of the world. Given us a new and mote commanding place at the table of the family of nations. Everywhere we have .nade good, met every requirement, registered failure in no particular. But we still have to care for that little detail of finishing the job. And upon our success in that will depend largely our future position in the eyes of the world. Whether we hold or lose its good opinion. America cannot afford to fail in this. She must finish as she began. Finish as her khaki-clasoldiery did. Finish as Americans should. As Uncle Sam wants to finish. It is for you and me and every other loyal citizen to spare no effort, no sacrifice, no inconvenience if need be, to accomplish this. To uphold the national honor, the national reputation for doing things. To help Uncle Sam make good every obligation and enable him to stand' before the world as proud of his as he is of the men who risked their lives. It is up to us to make our records, individually, aj good as theirs. We do Hot want to see America go down in history as humiliated at the finish by the men who did not fight. We do not want to be looked upon by posterity as men who would not d stay-at-homes - The-barbe- . pay. Who were without gratitude, without appreciation, without true loyalty. We want no finger of shame pointing at our country. And Uncle Sam's place in the sun a resplendent one. $$ $. HENRY DOUGHBOY HOMF. AGAIN AND HE WRITES: CopJTizbt ' IUI HJ.

There's five months' pay coming to us from the paymaster tomorrow, and I'm going to help out the folks at home and'take aTmndred dollars' worth." That was the time of the Fourth Loan. Well, he did, handing the mon- 4 ey over to the skipper right there at the pay table, telling him to buy a bond for him. That was a Thursday. Saturday at daylight we jumped off. Half an hour later I didn't have a bud-dyany more a piece o' shrap. Gee, he was a man! He gave everything he had .to his coun.-- . try. And since I've been back I've .hoard some people growling because Uncle Sam is asking 'em $ to make one more loan to him'so "$ he can finish up the job. $ When the Victory Loan- solicitor looks you up during the campaign you s, might think of the things that might have of these happened in the war. Suppose for just a minute that the Prussian guard had run over the American marines at Chateau-Thierrand Belleau Wood. That they had reached Paris and dictated the terms: of peace. Suppose it were von Helferich and. von Bernstorff and Emperors Wilhelm, Charles and Ferdinand who were in. Paris toddy dictating the terms around the peace table. If so, would north France be free of the Hun? Would King Albert be back in Brussels helping his country to get started again? Would Rumania be proudly standing off the Bolshevlki, reorganizing itself in its ruins and making a place for itself in the near east? If the Hun had won would broken. Serbia be gathering her people from.. Greece, from Corfu, from Italian!, islands and French territories and; coming back into devastation that ist worse than Belgium at its worst? Would Italy be bringing back the art treasures that have long been the marvels of the world? Would France be jubilating over the ? return of Would England's battle fleet be floating over harbors filled with German submarines? If the Hun had won there would be no allied troops on the Rhine. But there would be hundreds of thousands of allied prisoners slaving under Hun. taskmasters. Would Russia be free to carry out whatever there is in the myriad minds-othat maddened country? Would;. r s America be talking and planning to go out after for-- j elgn trade and insure American pros--1 perity for a generation? Wouldn't It be more likely that we--, would be preparing to raise 40,000,-- ! 000.000 Indemnity, as the kaiser toldj us we would after the war? Wouldn't we be preparing as feverishly as we. could to flght another and a more ter-- ! rible and probably a losing war just! as soon as we possibly could? Would the whole world be watching: the peace table with the hopeful in? terest and the sense of freedom Iti now has? Would there be any rejoicing! anywhere in all the world today except! In Hun Land?
