Frank well-known -- Farm Lands. iarms are selling so high in county Is discussed in nearly Adair every grouped men you meet, and various reasons are given, but to our mind, the most potent one is this: It is not known that farm lands are selt ing too high, but it is knovn that in recent years more money has been made at farming than anyj other occupation, and farmers have just begun to realize 'how profitable land is. Tobacco and other products have been bringing big money In the last few years, and cultivators who have not been working their land as they should have become stimulated by seeing the high prices that their neighbors have been getting and they have gone to work in earnest. For instance, a man buys a farm, say for 16,000, goes.to work and pays for it within three years with products pff the farm. Is that not good financiering? The industry of others is what is causing men to pay what seemingly is a high price, when in reality they are getting their money's worth. Why SOCIETY NOTES.

There were many beautiful flowers. The interment was in the city cemetery. It is very gratifying to know that Adair county has escaped the flu thus far this winter. At this time Columbia is exceedingly healthy and the schools are in a prosperous condition, and the business of the town is good. This time last year the flu was in our midst, and there were many deaths throughout the county, and the ravages of the disease did its work throughout the State. Is not good health and prosperous conditions generally something for which to be thankful? Should we not thank the Giver of all that is good and His loving protection? Ministers often ask for the unexpected. Do not pray for something you do not expect, but return thanks for the good he has done, and ask him to continue his blessings. Mr. Bay Conover and Mr. Horace Walker went to Campbellsville last Tuesday. While there Mr. Walker was awarded the contract to do quite a lot of work on the New Merchant Hotel. The contract consists in laying floors and general overhauling of the building. From Campbellsville Mr. Conover went to Nashville.

Exchange. J anti-Germa- The embarrassment of the annl s of the powers associated with the United States in the struggle against German world domination was not so great as was that experienced by the forces of Pershing, but It was serious nevertheless. The horse supply of Great Britain and France, although reinforced by tremendous importations from the United States, South America, South Africa, Canada and Australia, had been terribly depleted by the casualties of three years of fighting by the time our armies No replacements formidable. were available. Thousands of fine young lives were sacrlflced In the titanic struggle that raged from the English channel to the frontier of Switzerland from the beginning of 1918 to the middle of November because the underhorsing of allied artillery limited the protection that artillery should have rendered to the attacking Infantry. Ludendorf repeatedly refers in his story of the German defeat to merciful pauses (merciful to the hard pressed German army) in the French, British and American attack that enabled his commanders to extricate hard fighting divisions from perilous positions that were necessitated by the Inability of the attacking artillery and transport services to keep pace with the advancing Infantry. Unnecessary hardship had to be endured by the combat troops of the advancing forces of civilization because poor horsing in the transport services rendered impossible the bringing up of supplies in punctual military fashion. The fruits of victory were lost time and again because of the impot.'bUIty .of promptly exploring the achievements of infantry by the employment of large bodies of cavalry. The lack of cavalry at St. Mihiel, at Chateau Thierry, in the Argonne and at Sedan made American officers steeped in the traditions of Forrest and Stuart, of Pleasanton and Sheridan fairly cry. 'j.Lere were some so called cavalry regiments in the A. E. F., but they were not cavalry. At no time was a single American cavalry regiment mounted. Victory Would Have Been Great. Even the cavalry of the British and French armies, which had been fairly well horsed at the beginning of the war and more carefully conserved than had been the cavalry of the other memalliance, was bers of the 4)e-mn LAbhY (JKhhK., K.Y. have remained on the west bank of the Rhine prisoners of war to begin, when the peace conference directed the restoration of those portions of Belgium and France wnldb they had so barbarously devastated.

One of the chief fortresses of America's new military defense system which developed out of the World War Is the Ammonium Nitrate Plant at Musc'e Shoals, Alabama, on the Tennessee Itiver, over three hundred miles from the seacoast, capable of turning out 300 tons of high explosives a day. It assures to the United States for all time an abundance of ammunition without which an army is a helpless encumbrance and it has made this unlimited supply of explosives available without resort to raw ma terial from outside of the country.
