Thirty-Sevent- h Anniversary. The Palmer Oil and Gas Company, a Minister corporation chartered here in Colum bia, State of Kentucky, with offices Known to Every body in Co also in Cleveland, Ohio, held their iambla District. annual meeting here Wednesday, Jan., 21, 1920. The following Directors AFTEBSHORTILLNBSDIESATCAHPBELLSVILLE were elected for the ensueing year: The intelligence of the'death of Rev. S. G. Shelley, which occurred at his home in Campbellsville, last Sunday morning, between midnight and day, cast a gloom over this entire community. For four years before being assigned to Campbellsville, he was the Presiding Elder of the Columbia District, and during that time he resided in Columbia, and often preached to the congregation at this place. He was a very lovable man, full of the spirit of God, and was a constant worker for his Master. He was a strong man intellectually, kind and gentle in manners, drawing all men into his confidence, having only the love of God for his guidance. His death brought sorrow to every home in this town and throughout the Columbia district, being classed as a man of God. His passing is not only a serious blow to the Church he loved, but it is a distinctive loss to society, as he stood for right living and taught it from the pulpit The deceased had been a popular minister in this community for many years, having been the Presiding Elder at two different times, with a few years between the charges. He was a man who was never known to be idle. It mattered not where you saw him, en the streets or upon the public highway, he was busy In the cause of his Maker. The deceased was born and reared in Clinton county, and was licensed to preach when quite a young man, years old, and was about sixty-tw- o and during his career as a minister he filled many important charges in the Louisville Conference'' He had served a Church at Louisville, Hopkinsville and Glasgow, and a number other Churches of the larger towns of Kentucky. At the time of'his death he was a member of the Board of Education of the Louisville Conference, and he took a great interest in the Llndsey-Wilso- n school, this place. His death has cast a gloom over the Louisville Conference and all the Churches of Southern Methodism George H. Palmer, President, Fred J. White, Vice President, John O' Brien," Secretary, S. W. Schartzenberg, Treasure, Elmer G. Derr, Attorney, J. B. Harpham, OH Manager, J. M. Carrol, Business Manager, This company has some very fine holdings in Adair county, also in Metcalfe and Cumberland counties. Their intentions are soon to be put into execution near Columbia. A little patience is ail that is necessary to see the results. Messrs. Palmer, O' Brien and Schartenberg came here Monday with the intention of a thorough inspection of their leases, but owing to the condition of the roads and constant rain, had to postpone it until later, as other business in Cleveland demanded their presence back home. M. 0' Brien and M. Schwartzenberg, being on their first visit here in Columbia, they were very much pleased with this section and more so with the people that they came in contact with, and cannot say enough of their appreciation for same, but their only hope is to be among them again in the near future prepared for business.

It is true that if the city limits Should be expended, more streets would have to be maintained, but it is also true that more taxes would be collected to be expended on the streets. There would have to be an election called and the people given an opportunity to vote on the proposition.

The Second Division was the division in which the famous Marine Corps was brigaded. The Second was one of the best equipped of the" American grand units as regards horseflesh. The cream of the remount service was In Its artillery and transport departments. In June, 1918, the Second Division was ordered from a quiet sector of the western front near Verdun to the western angle of the great Marne salient the German offensive of March to June had created In the French line. Foch had sensed the impending thrust that was to win Paris and a victorious peace, and he was assembling all his available soldiers to meet It. The carrying out of this order by the Second Division involved a march of less than 100 miles, 97 to be exact. Yet 80 per cent of the coldblooded horses of the artillery brigade succumbed to the rigors of this more-dat- e march without having come under gunfire.

The Second Division fought the first day without artillery protection and suffered outrageously in consequence. The artillery brigade reached the zone of conflict late in the second day and was enabled to take part in the series of actions that completely deranged Ludendorfs ambitious plan of conquest and put the great German army on the defensive only because American remount officers were able to it from the surplus horse supply of the French army with half and breds. The French were in a position to furnish these Indispensable animals because up to the beginning of March the war had been a war of position rather than a war of movement and no hard demand had been made on the artillery and cavalry horse reserves of the French army. When the great war came to its unexpected finish the United States had under arms, at home and abroad, some 3,700,000 soldiers, of which 974,000 were infantry, 394,00 were engineers, 389,000 were field artillery, but only 29,000 were cavalry. The field artillery was horsed after a fash ion. So was the engineer contingent. But the quality of the horses that served the field artillery and the engineer contingent generally was no better, If, Indeed, It was as good, than was the quality of the horses that failed the artillery brigade of the Second Division In the march from Verdun to the Marne salient. Our Cavalry Not There. For such masses of infantry and 0 artillery there should have been to 350,000 cavalry, according to the most advanced military opinion in the United States and abrodll. Yet only an Insignificant fraction of the absurdly small mounted contingent of the gigantic military establishment of the United States of November 1st, 191S the second, third, sixth and fifteenth cavalry regiments was in France. Most of our 29,000 troopers were patrolling the Mexican frontier. Moreover only a moiety of the American cavalry forces in France was mounted. At no time was it possible to completely horse the second, third, sixth and fifteenth regiments. The troopers of these regiments, when they were not serving with machine gun contingents, were guarding munitions and quartermaster's stores.

Heretofore the average annual salary of Baptist ministers in the South has been less than $500, meaning that a large number of preachers received considerably less than that sum, making it necessary that they engage iv other occupations during the week in order to support themselvesand their families, and rendering it practicaliy impossible for yiem to lay aside as a support for their old age The establishment of the Relief ana Aunuity Board and the decision to is respectorof persons." raise $5,000,000 during the next sever Believing at least this much of The State is to drop the case years for the relief of the aged minis-terantf in need the Christian creed, America has of Dr. Schott, the grand jury the already adequate of assistance mei care of the more having refused to indict him. who hereafter give their lives to th seemed to us greatest when she Christian ministry without an oppor has been most the servant of Frank Munsey, owner of the tunity to save up a competency to tide them through sickness or care foi humanity, and least when she New York Sun has purchased the them In their declining days, has mei with a cordial reception at the hand would be isolated fragment of New York Herald. of Southern Baptists, and it is the provision of better treat ment for the ministers in their retire ment wiirnot only tend to eau.se youna men to look with greater favor upo the ministry as a life work, but wil FOR CHEAP GOODS GO TO bring the members of local cohgrega ttons generally to see the need of pa Ing pastors more adequate salaries be fore these pastors become old an helpless.

The man who can eat and sleep in peace while his neighbors are crushed beneath some . load that he could help them bear is accursed whether he knows it or not. So also is that nation that puts its own prosperity, its own selfish interests first, and says to the rest of earth's teeming millions, organized into nations, "Go your way down to death through hunger and want and pestilence and war, for all of me!" The nation that does this js itself on the road to death, no matter what staticitis say about its armies and navies.its exports, and the bills receivable due it from its less fortunate neighbors. To be an American, then, so far as it fs given us to understand it, is to be one who, loving his country as the one nation most dear to him, and for whose true honor and defense he would, glad ly die if need were, most longs to see her, and most strives to seer her, the great, generous, unselfish friend and helper of the suffering and distressed, let them speak what tongue or own allegiance to wt at flag they may. This is the highest type of American citizenship we can conceive. This what we would say stands' for 100 per cent Americanism.

No matter what he is able to earn, whether small sum or great, the securities of the government, Thrift Stamps, War Savings Stamps, Treasury Savings Certi ficates of Indebtedness and Liberty Bonds give opportunity to save at least a part of his reward of labor.
