Shelby villa News. A marriage that was quite a surprise to the young people of Columbia took place in the afternoon of February 14th, in the city of Louisville, when Mr. John Rose, who is a bookkeeper in the Bank of Columbia, a young man of excellent character and standing, and Miss Zora Feese, a handsome daughter of Mr and Mrs W. A Feese, Coburg, were happily married The ceremony was performed in the presence of a few witnesses and friends by Rev. J. C. Hoskinson, of the Methodist Church. There no objections to the union so far were as we know, and we take it that the couple left home for the ceremony in order to surprise their many friends. The groom was an oversea soldier and engaged in fifteen battles. He has now started to battle for a handsome living forhimself and companion, and there is not a doubt in our mind but he will win out. He and his bride certainly have the best wishes of all Columbia. At present they will board with Mr. and Mrs Elmer Keen. essary papers. He overtook Sheriff Senders and the two went to Frankfort, secured requisitions on the Governor of Indiana from the Governor of Kentucky.

The officers and the two prisoners landed in Colombia Friday night. Both Shearer and Sexton were landed in Jail. Their cases will be called at the term of circuit court, commencing next Monday, and dates for their trials fixed.

This was the theme of an Interesting argument before Justice McCardie in the divorce court, arising out of a case in which damages were sought against the corespondent by the husband. Counsel fojr the petitioner said that up to the matrimonial causes act of 1858 a woman was regarded as a chattel and the jury had to award damages according to her value to her husband, nis. lordship then skctL wicn had a t had lrone. Judge You say she Is still to be regarded as a chattel? Counsel Yes, with slight modifications. The question in assessing dam ages is what she is worth. Judge Then you call her quasi chattel?

The survey takes account of the community's economic conditions, such as natural resources, chiel sources of income, soil, climate and market conditions, relations of farm ers and business men, industrial data, etc. The social life and organizations of the community are covered in detail, together with other information to throw light on the state of the social mind. The third link in the survey chain is the survey ,of each church in each community. This sets out the location, denomination, minister, date of organization, descriptive data as to buildings and equipment, membership, regular and special meetings and tabulated results therefrom, statistics as to area covdred'hy the parish, number of families 'reached, parish problems and other data to give a comprehensive vision of the parish, and supplemented by information as to the program, rework outlined for the church by tne pastor and the official boards. The triple surveys county, community and church assemble all information that may be .needed to aid the individual churches and denominations in working outvtheir present problems and future programs of development, so that wasted effort may be eliminated and unproductive activities of each denomination may be transferred to productive fields. The need of such a systematic study of church conditions is apparent by the results of investigation already made in some sections of the South, if the churches are to accomplish the greatest possible amount of good. The conditions found to exist In some quarters are rather startling. In one county in the South, for instance", there are 44 churches, of which 14 are dead and only 16 of which maintain Sunday ssbools. R. Y. Simpson was in Columbia last Wednesday.

The moon door is but a single feature of the old place. Once inside the high stone walls that enclose it one is lost in a maze of courts and galleries and covered passages and isolated rooms. tracks. L. E. YOUNG, "jeweler; Columbia, The whole Is China, old China and new. The moon doors and the architecture as a whole lend the dignity and the greatness of old China. But the laboratories and dormitories, libra ries and studies made., from the old rooms of state and ceremony are modern: Just as the force of America is behind it all, represented by the five American missionary organizations the American Smith College Wy which maintain Ginling, is modern. One pushes ajar the halves of a moon door, latticed over paper in plum blossom and honeycomb design, and enters a chemical laboratory set up in a room with 20 windows, each framed in dragon tracery. And from the flagstones of the laboratory floor, often is scraped fungi and mould for use under the microscope. These are typical contrasts of Ginling College, revealed through the survey of the Chinese field now being made by the Interchurch World Movement, which seeks to promote the closer of Protestant Churches of America in attaining their world aims. Ginling College, the survey shows, is at the heart of five Chinese provinces, with a total population of 110 000,000 and is the only woman's col lege in that great area. Ginling owns 37 acres of land on the hills beside the Yangtze river. In the interchurch World Movement survey of China, there is a budget item of $500,000. It is there to shov the churches of America how they can place upon that land on the hill the library, administration building, recitation buildings, chapel all that are needed for a modern college. and TAKE The Woman's Tonic You can rely on Cardui.

Lind-sey-Wilson only a FEW have taken enough interest in the matter to put up their money, the mass of the business men and property owners holding back and standing in their own light, for when development starts it means more people coming into your midst, and this naturally results in more business, and also in the increase in the values of properties. You simply can't afford to let this opportunity get away from you, and the time for action is NOW, for valuable time is slipping by, and in the meantime outsiders are "gobbling up" all the valuable acreage they can secure, believing, as we also do, that this section is rich in Oil and Gas and that it is destined to be one of the great producing fields of the country. The demand for crude oil is far in excess of the supply, and prices are simply soaring upward. Are you for the proposition or against it. You are one or the other, and if the former, get busy and lend your assistance in putting the proposition a place where they have better roads. Mr. W. J. Janes sold his farm, last week, near this place, to G. W. Burris & Sons for $2,200 cash. To show you how land has advanced around old Grady-vill- e: Only a few years ago Mr. that bids fair to revolutionize the motor business of the world. dsey-Wilso- n, Post-offic- she-did- Post-mast- er -- Janes came back from the Lone Star State, and bought this farm from Dr. L. C. Nell for $700. He has made a good living, and had corn and tobacco to sell every year since he has been living on the farm. He and family are going to where they have better roads, buying a farm in Hart Co. Mr. Burris and sons are farmers, after the same pattern of Mr. Janes, and it goes without saying that if corn and tobacco stay up at the present prices, twelve months from to day they will have their money bask from the proceeds of this farm, with the land in just as good shape as it was the day they took charge of it. Furthermore, we are certain to have a pike from Columbia to Grady-villin he near future, because our people have decided if money is all it takes to have a pike they had rather have the pike than their money, and believe me they are subscribing liberally, and Mr. Burris and sons are some of the subscribers, because they know it will double the value of their farm. This fuel which is a chemical preparation will give nearly double the mileage of gasoline and eliminates all carbon troubles. It will clean your and keep it clean, and at present may be purchased at the same price as gasoline. The fuel was invented by a young man by the name of Stephens, who held a position in the chem ical laboratory at Washington during the war and is the outcome of investigation made at the instance of the government in an effort to find a fuel that would operate the motor of an airplane at a great elevation equally as well as at a lower altitude. It may not be generally known, but it is a fact that on account of gasoline not giving the power at an altitude that it gave lower down greatly hampers aerial fighting during the war. For an engine that has a two hundred horsepower on the ground ha3 less than fifty horse power when operate d ten thousand feet up in the air. I am glad to learn that an oil Company is being organized to test Adair county for oil at a great depth. I am sure that there is oil in the county and believe that it will finally be locat. ed. We know that there is oil on Harrodsfork, but think that all thewell3 that have been put down in that section have been too shallow, and also have been too far from the creek.
