We grow on this farm corn, wheat, hay, pumpkins, apples, peaches, cherries, plums, grapes strawberries, sold fifty gallons of strawberries at Columbia this season, grapes, pears, crab apples, sugar camp operated last spring, which made any amount of sugar and syrup, and all other garden stuff. And we have the finest and largest variety of flowers in all this section. Big Elm Farmers have been taking the Adair County News for twenty one years. C. S. Harris had only forty two subscribers on his list when your honorable pen pusher first subscribed, and the paper made its appearance in about three weeks. We have several hundred copies laid away now, some of them running back fifteen and twenty years which we refer to concern ing things that happened in Adair and adjoining counties. We don't see how we could get along without it; it is a good history of all the important happenings not only in Adair and adjoining counties but out of the state. We hear from people we know living in Texas, New Mexico and several other states. Mrs. Wilburn, widow of William Wilburn, who proceeded her to the grave several years, died in this section last Monday, and was buried Tuesday. On the fourth of July a day set apart for a reunion of the Aaron and Callison families at Mount Zion church, some from Columbia, some from Jamestown, and other places.lt was the regular monthly meeting and a discourse was delivered by the pastor. We are very dry here now, distressingly dry, we have had no rain since the fifth of June and most of the corn is in the clods, yet this the 29th day of June. A large part of the corn was planted late and some of it has not been planted yet. The worst prospect for corn we have ever had at the first of July.

The most celebrated of these cave villages are those of Bourre and of Chissay (Indre et Loire) of Brantome The Inhabiand Eyzlas (Dordogne). tants of these villages live in caverns in the rocks. These houses or dwellings are aired both by an opening in the front and by the large chimney which protrudes above the ground. They are occasionally two or three stories high and are provided with ceilings and floors. These habitations of several stories are occasionally dug out at the side of a cliff. Upon entering one of the dwellings one Is struck by the cleanliness which reigns therein. The furniture Is usually of a very antique and ancient character, although at times a cradle or other pieces of modern types will be seen. The picture shows how residences are built under the overhanging cliffs in the village of Bourre. Some of the rooms extend far Into the rock.

When you climb to the top of a high mountain you feel worshipful and at peace with the universe. Monserrat Is an outlying spur of the Pyrennees which stands all alone, splendidly dominating a rich plain. It Is one of the most anCient and famous of Catholic shrines. According to legend, many centuries ago an linage of the Virgin was found at the top of the mountain, and it was impossible to move the image. Thus It was shown to men that they should build a shrine on Monserrat. In medieval times It was a shrine of unexcelled beauty and splendor. An emperor came here to kneel and to cover the great Byzantine church with gold. A queen wafked up the mountain barefoot. The gr(eat and the learned of all the Christian world Chronic "Knocker" Blind to Any Good Qualities Prominent in Either Friend or Enemy. I The knocker Is a common wild animal you have all met. He la known by the loud noise which he makes all the time, which sounds like the strokes of a hammer on an anvil. I never knew of a place which did not have at least one confirmed knocker. One is enough to go around. The knocker seems to be afraid of dying from shame if he should ever be caught saying something good about a person. He knocks the folks he works with. If you mention a good thing about a man, he Is always ready with his "Yes, but " and then he starts in with a long string of defects to offset the good qualities. This animal has very keen eyes when he Is looking for defects, but for good qualities he Is stone blind. In nine cases out of ten he Is envious or Jealous, and when one has a feeling of Inferiority, it Is much easier to "run down" other people than to lift one's self up. Many men do It who do not mean to do the harm they cause, but it is a habit they easily get into, and It not only does harm to other people, but It robs a man himself of the pleasure he might get out of the good things in other men. An astronomer had been looking through a telescope at the sun for several hours one day, when someone said to him, "What a fine day we have had." "I really hadn't noticed it," he answered, "I've been looking for the spots in the sun." A man misses all the good things when he Is- on the outlook for spots. H. E.

SOUTH DAKOTA FLOOD HERO After Setting the Danger Signals Foreman Remembers His Negligee and Swims Back Across 600 Feet of Swirling Current It seems to me a great mistake to "live down to" children. They axe capable of understanding and responding to deep and fine thoughts and feelings. Never from the first did we criticize or humiliate our boys In any way. We gave them credit always for the high, and right motive, and suspended judgment till they had told their side. But if they were wrong they were not punished. The fact that they had fallen below what had been expected of them was punishment enough. A certain standard of conduct was thus established that they longed always to realize. They were able, even then, to see the beauty of certain qualities and the ugliness of others. It was lovely to see them trying to conform to the habit in the household, of unfailing courtesy and unselfishness and restraint They often failed. They often showed their temper. But they grew to be more and more ashamed of their failures. Character cannot be built from the outside. Coercion does not make for strength only for compliance. That. It seems to me. Is the great mistake some parents make. They exact obedience when they should Instill principle. Inspire! That Is the better word. Then the child will have an Inner light to guide him, a compass to steer him to a certain goal. When the guiding hand Is lifted, ao many are left with no deep convictions principles to shape their destiny but impulses. They may be good, they may be bad, as life plays upon their emotions and desires. To trust to them for guidance is like going oat upon a stormy sea in a tiny craft at the mercy of tossing waves and wind. Katron Trousdale, In Christian Herald. Omaha. In the recent South Dakota floods John Williams, a section foieman, swam a swollen creek at night in a hailstorm to warn a passenger train that a bridge had gone out. He stripped himself and tied the danger signals to his back. After he had set them he approached a near-b- y house, then remembered his negligee and swam back across the 600 feet of swirling current.

In 1S41 he appeared before the American institute in New York nnd proposed a model for a new ship. He succeeded in interesting William Aspinwall, one of Xew York's China trade princes, who in 1S42 signed a contract to build a ship of 7."0 tons according to Griffiths' designing. The ship was completed in January. 1S43. and named the Rainbow. The Rainbow sailed for China in February, and was back home again In September to reward her owners with 200 per cent over what she had cost. John Willis Griffiths was born in New York in 1809. and died there In 18S2. He was the Inventor of the trap style of hull construction; the builder of the United States steamship Princeton, the first twin screw oceangoing vessel, and was the Inventor of the process of bending ship timber in a vacuum. In 1851 he published privately a treatise on naval architecture which attracted comparatively little attention In this country, but Its merits were recognized in England, and he became a lecturer In Edinburgh university on naval architecture. Old Washington Monument Made Immune From Lightning by Scheme That Has Proved Its Worth. The apex of the Washington monument is surrounded with parallel bands. The bands are studded with, golden points. The. bands are made ot Iron a foot wide. and. the points are spaced a foot from one'' another. According to the original plan of the monument it was protected from lightning by an aluminum tip that was connected with the metal framework of the elevator. During the very first summer after the monument was completed, however, it was struck twice, and a piece of stone was chipped from, the top. Experts from all the scientific departments of the government were called on to contrive a plan for the better protection of the shaft They agreed on a number of iron bands; heavily galvanized and gold plated, to prevent rusting. The bands are connected with the aluminum point of the monument and the framework of the elevator, and at the base iron cables lead the electricity Into a deep well, where It harmlessly expends its force. The protection has proved to be perfect. gold-plate- d Priceless opportunities belong to a mother to give to the baby, with his w hole life before him, the true foundations of character and chance of future happiness and greatness.

In the earliest time of which there Is any record, Ireland was inhabited by tribes ofthe great Celtic family, to which, belonged the ancient Briton of the larger island, and the Gauls of the country now known as France. Each tribe had Its chief, and after a time a supreme monarch came to the front One of the most famous of these was Brian, who overthrew the invading Danes in the battle of Clon-tarfought In the year 1014 near Dublin. He was slain In his tent at the close of the fight. After "his death the supreme monarchy was often in 'omplete abeyance, misrule and anarchy widely prevailed and the ancient form of society was largely broken up. It Is said that Roderick O'Connor, son of Turlough, was the last of the of Celtic Ireland. From that time the Influence of mon-arcAnglo-Normans Dinner for Dyspeptics.

The purchasers of the areas are shrill be depos- people interested In Welsli's archeol-ogand with one exception resident in the counties of Carnarvon and Anglesey, purchased the areas near the "Waterworks" in order that they might be saved from the hands of the builders and be systematically explored. Three acres are within the wall of the fortress, and half an acre lies without it. In addition to these two areas, it Is probable that permission will be obtained to excavate about three and a half acres immediately adjoining the main site, on the northwest and northeast, and the vicar of Carnarvon has stated that he will put no difficulty in the way of carrying out excavation in the vicarage garden, which lies within the wall of Segontium and covers about an y, The New Motor taw.

An annual in-terim report of the excavations will appear in "Archaeologia Cambrensis. Active support has also come from the Society of Antiquaries, and it Is proposed to solicit the help and influence of tlie Smithsonian institution of the United States of America. The combined appeal to the pocket and imagination of the scientific archaeologist ought not to fall on deaf ears. While archaeologists have been making history during the war In the near East, archaeology, like most of the more serious pleasures of life, has been hibernating. Now it is .beginning to awake and realize how much lost time has to lie made up, and one of the first tasks to hand ii the excavation of the Roman fortress of Segontium, by which, It is hoped, much light may be thrown on one of the darkest pages of British history, on the history, Indeed, of all races of British origin.

Magistrate Nolan fined Weiss $2, which he paid. The magistrate, In fixing the amount of the fine, said In a judicial aside to the clerk, "Kisses are cheaper now since the boys came back from tlie war."

OIL BURNER ON FRENCH ROAD American Locomotive Proves Success on Tours Railway Line. Every driver of an automobile and every garage in Kentucky should cut out the following provisions of the new motor law and paste them up where thery will be seen and remembered: On Thursday, June I7th, the new motor law of Kentucky went into effect. This bill is an improvement on preceeding bills in many particulars, should have special attention. The new bill makes it illegal to have a cutout connected as to permit of its operation from the drivers seat. It provides that every car must be equipped with a good and sufficient muffler and makes the use of the cutout on a public highways unlawful. It is to be hoped that this provision will be strictly enforced and that it may be of assistance in making an end of the nuisance of those drivers who hustle. north and south and east and west in utter indifference to all but themselves making noises like a Derpetual rOUrth 01 July. The new law also has stringent provisions as to the use of glaring headlights.
