Bell, who was the widow of John Bell', died at her late home, Nell, Adair county. She was seventy years old, lacking one week, and the immediate cause of her demise was a stroke of' paralysis.

Mrs. Bell was a Miss Walker before her marriage, and was a sister of the late Mrs. Kizzie Russell, of this place. She was a devoted Christian woman,1 a member of the Baptist Church for many years. She was a kind and affectionate mother, and will be greatly missed by her devoted children.

Pardue, who paid high tribute to the memory of the deceased. The interment was at Nell, a large number of friends being present. Democratic Convention. Mr. Farmer's Union; J. Y.

Mr. A hospital for the benefit of sons who become afflicted in Adair and adjoining counties should be established at Columbia. We have competent surgeons and physicians here, who would take a pride in such an Institution, and its convenience would be a great saving to the people. There has not been a year for a long time but a large sum of money has been expended in Louisville by afflicted persons, when the same attention could have been given here at home, but for the lack of a building to care for the sick. This building would Have to be erected with money subscribed as stock,, and those who have looked into the cost of such an insti tucion believe that it would pay a good dividend on the investment. It would be a move that would require an eflort, but if the sentiment of those who are able to invest should become manifest, it will be no trouble to find a compedent person to solicit the necessary stock.

They are taking subscriptions and at this time have eighteen thousand dollars subscribed. They propose to build the pike to Bryan Miller's store, which is two miles above GJenville, but they will not start the work until a sufficient amount of money has been paid in to build it to that point. Of course it is expected and it is believed that the Glensfork people will build to the store. It is also believed that Columbia and the citizens living along the route from here to Glenville will build it to that point. This pike would connect us with Cumberland river. This done all our heavy freight could be shipped by water to Creelsboro, making our freight bills f what t hey are. This about is a project worth the attention of the business men of Columbia, and the people along the line. Arm Amputated. A twelve year oldson of Jas.
