(SpeciaU A HORRIBLE KILLING. Notes From Greensburg Record. Columbia is progressive, it built miles of concrete sidewalks when ce ment had to be hauled by nnule- - team from Campbelisville. The return of Mr. J. B. Baker to Columbia recalls an old story. He was a youn man during the civil war, and the day Gen. John H. Morgan witn a few regiments of soldiers entered Columbia, en route north, Jim .Slter, as he was .familiarly called, Ben Lee Hardin, who now lives at Harrodsburg, and a few other young men about town, with revolvers in hand, went to the upper room in the old brick building that stood on the corner in Mrs. Betti$ Butler's yard, to get a better view jf the approaching army that was coming down the the street. They let their patriotism get the better of their judgment, and fired several shots at the Confederats. The advance guard upon reaching the square sent a squad of men to the building from which the shots were fired. All the boys made their escape but Jim Baker and Ben Lee Hardin. They were arrested, and when Gen. Morgan rode up he ordered' that they be shot. Accordingly, they were marched up to the old clerks office and placed to be executed. While tnls was being done Col. Timoleon Cravens, Junius Caldwell, Nat Gaith-e- r and other friends were notified of the perilous situation of the boys, and they hastened to the scene. These gentlemen were all Southern sympathizers, and Col. Cravens had been a personal friend of General Morgon before the war. He and other gentlemen Interceded for the boys, and, they were ordered to be released. Had it not been for the earnest pleas of "Cravens', Caldwell and Gaither, the bones of Jim Baker and Ben Lee Hardin would be in yonders cemetery. In Good Health at Ninety.

But for several years the blight has appeared and the plants have done to $25,000. The following is the dispatch from Campbelisville: John Reuben Durham, 55, vice pres-ideof the S. H. Grinstead Company, the largest poultry house here, shot and instantly killed Norman Hobson, 48, manager of the concern, shortly after 9 o'clock this morning and then ended his own life a minute later in a room over his office. " Dave Thurman, the only eyewitness of the tragedy, said that Hobson was reading a letter in front of the store wben Durham came out with a shotgun and fired the load of one barrel into Hobson's neck. He then ran up stairs and another report was heard. He was found dead with the 'load of the other barrel through his breast. Durham is believed by his friends to have lost his mind. He had been manager for many years of the Grinstead house and. after a recent consolidation with the McKinley house, was cut off as a salaried employe, for which it is believed he held Hobson responsible. It is known that there was ill feeling between the two. nt Notice to Teachers. This is a school town and the people of the community are interested in their prosperity.

"The governor sent me back to look for hlg handkerchief, Shirley," he explained. "He didn't tell me you were here. Guess he didn't hear you." He advanced smilingly toward her. "I'm tremendously glad to see you today, Shirley," he said, and paused beside her. "Fate has been singularly kind to me. Indeed Fve been pondering all day as to just how I was to arrange a private and confidential little chat with you, without calling upon you at your uncle's house." "I don't feel like chatting today," she answered a little drearily and then, he noted her wet lashes. Instantly he was on one knee beside her; with the amazing confidence that had always distinguished him in her eyes his big left arm went around her, and when her hands went to her face he drew them gently away. "I've waited too long, sweetheart," he murmured. "Thank God, I can tell you at last all the things that have been accumulating in my heart I love you, Shirley. I've loved you from that first day we met at the station, and all these months of strife and repression have merely served to make me love you the more. Perhaps you have been all the dearer to me because you seamed so hopelessly unattainable." -- . He drew Eer head down on his breast; his great hand patted her hot cheek; his honest brown eyes gazed earnestly, wistfully Into hers. "I love you," he whispered. "All that I have all that I am all that I hope for I offer to you, Shirley Sumner; and In the shrine of my heart I shall hold you sacred while life shall last You are not Indifferent to me, dear. I know you're not ; but tell me answer me " Her violet eyes were uplifted to his, and In them he read the answer to his cry. "Ah, may I?" he murmured, and kissed her. "Oh, my dear. Impulsive, gentle big sweetheart," she whispered and then her arms went around his neck, and the fullness of her happiness found vent In tears he did not seek to have her repress. In the safe haven of Ms arms she rested; and there, quite without effort or distress, she managed to convey to him something more than an Inkling of the thoughts that were wont to come to her whenever they reiterated. "Do you realize what that resolution means to us?" The girl's tones were grave, her glance graver. "I realize what It means to me!" She came closer to him. Suddenly the blaze in her violet eyes gave way to one of mirth. "Oh, you dear big booby!" she cried. "I was just testing you." And she clung to him, laughing. "You always beat me down you a always win. Bryce, dear, I'm the Grande Lumber company at least I will be tomorrow, and I repeat foe the last time that you shall not build the N. C.

And silly, didn't I tell you you'd never build the N. C. O.?" "God bless my mildewed soul!" he murmured, and drew her to him. In the gathering dusk they walked down the trail. Beside the madrone tree John Cardigan waited patiently. "Well," he queried when they joined him, "did you find my handkerchief for me, son?"

To her came at regularly spaced Intervals the faint whining of the saws and the rumble of log trains crawling out of the log dumps; high over the piles of bright, freshly sawn lumber she caught from time to time the flash of white spray as the great Jogs tossed from the trucks hurtled down the skids and crashed into the bay. At the docks of both mills vessels were loading, their tall spars cutting the sky line above and beyond the smokestacks; far down the bay a steam schooner, loaded until her main deck was almost flush with the water, was putting out to sea, and Shirley heard the faint echo of her siren as she whistled her intention to pass to starboard of a wind jammer Inward bound in tow of a Cardigan. tug.

King that the United States was honor of Illinois. bound to grant Independence without further delay. Congressman King Is one of an Increasing number of Republicans in the House who are urging quick action on Philippine independence. Mr. King Is the author of a bill which provides that within one year the Philippine government, under presidential proclamation, may assemble a convention and frame a constitution. After the constitution Is ratified by the Filipino people the President may recognize the Philippine islands as "a separate and nation." The transfer of authority is to be completed within one year. Provision Is made for safeguarding American Investments in the Philippines and for the providing of coaling stations and submarine bases in the Islands by the United States. Word from the Philippines Is that the people expect early Independence and will be sorely disappointed if they do not get It "No nation has the right" said Congressman King "to hold another people In peonage, even though it may be argued by the professoriate that the condition is simply one of 'tutelage.' "A little more observance of the golden rule in national and international affairs would soon dispel that desire for exploitation, the fiercest foe of freedom in the world today. "When we went to the Philippines we declared before the whole world that we were not actuated by any selfish desire of conquest or territorial aggrandizement, but solely by humanitarian Impulses." Congressman King called attention to the fact that Filipinos are now raising funds to erect a monument to Admiral Dewey, which he said was indirectly a tribute to the American people as well as to Dewey. He recalled the cable that Dewey had sent to t McKinley, which was as self-governiI'n-siden- ward J.

The Committee on Library also has certainlocal advantages. While these are important Committees to the country at large, and will give me local prestige that Ican turn to advantage indirectly for my district, yet I am disappointed that it may mean more to the country at large than to the Eighth District.

Oil peoplejgenerally have had cause to rejoice within the past week over the? substantial advance in the price of crude. It is not yet up rto what it ought, and in our opinion will, be at no distant date, but an advance of twenty cents per barrel is a good starter, and it will have the effect of stimulating production very materially, and it is the firm belief of everyone posted in the business that this advance is only the beginning of the general rise in prices until they have reached the level prevailing at the beginning of the year. Mr. 0. C. Fink, one of our best known local operators, is back from a trip of inspection to the Brush Creek field, and he is loud in his praises of that section.

The ease wich which the Turks have been defeating the Greek armies in the Anatolian campaign indicates that the Turkish nation is not nearly so close to extinction as some have believed, and that the Greeks, when required to stand alone, are not much more formidable in war than they were when the Turks put them to route a few years ago. St. Louis had one day thig week a municipal election, on of the heated kind presumably that is characteristic of American cities.

Tells of Relief The American Committee for China Famine Fund, according to a statement issued by Thomas W. Lamont, chairman, has reached the second stage of its mission of mercy of sending funds from America to feed the millions of starving famine victims in the far eastern republic. At the lowest estimate, the statement says, just as much more is needed to carry "the last 5,000,000" through to the- June harvest as has already been sent. Mr. Lamont points out that quick response by America to appeals made by President Harming and his predecessor, President Wilson, has resulted in such prompt distribution of 'relief that the threatened magnitude of the famine has been checked to a marked extent A continuation of the efforts so far made, it Is declared, will place the famine relief for China among America's most effective philanthropies. The Waiting Millions There remain, however, the statement shows, a "last 5,000,000" to be saved, and these people can be saved only by continuous and voluminous relief resulting from American subscriptions. The statement, In part, follows : "Quick response to the appeal of the American Committee for China Famine Fund gives us at the half-wa- y point in our work the cheering assurance that the subscriptions from generous America already have served a great humanitarian purpose, inasmuch! as relief already administered lias held the famine In bounds ami made it possible for America to save a multitode' of human beings. "Whereas early estimates matie it seem that millions must perish, we now are advised that instead ot the 15,000,000 who, it was originally feared, were doomed to death from hunger, relief at present in sight from all eources, American, Chinese and foreign, is sufficient to "provide scanty rations until the June harvest for all except 5,000,000 people. These 'last 5,000,000' are destitute, according to our latest Teports from the American Advisory 'Committee In Peking and are dependent for existence upon new help coming from outside sources, and this means America. From All the People "It Is the earnest hope of the Committee fhatt the numbeT Of contributions made as well as the aggregate will be sndh as to make our humanitarian gift, in a real sense, a gift of the American people as a whole. "One "way to make individual effort and generosity contribute toward "China's starving population is Urr every one responsive to QItmi's need, in effect, to 'pick a pal In China for a day.' The thought behind this special appeal in connection with the latter part of our effort will be for American men, women and children to choose, figuratively, a Chinese famine victim .as a friend for a day and to send wfcat they spend one day on themselves or an American friend to the China Famine Fund either through local committees, "banks or churcnes or direct to Vernon Mun-rotreasurer, Bible House, New York sa-r-ine, and American Fence. r fc".

Andrew Jackson was an enthusiastic patron of horse racing long before he became president. He maintained a formidable stable, which included Truxton, a horse of which he was exceedingly proud, and with which he won the famous mtch race for $5,000 against Greyhound. After his inauguration as president, he brought his horses to the Capitol, and in 1834 trained them In person, Vice President and Mrs. Van Buren often being present to witness the morning work-ou-t of the horses personally, superintended by the president, with characteristic impetuosity and plain speech, for "Old Hickory," as history records, "had a temper of his own." The Washington Course, located about two miles from the Capital, was built in 1802. Tne Jockey Club, under whose auspices it was' operated, numbered among its members the most distinctive men of affairs of the day. Racing was regularly attended by the presidents, from Jefferson to Van Buren. On one occasion John Qtiincy Adams walked to and from the course, surrounded by the equipages of the wealthy. "Generals Washington and Jackson," writes one leading commentator, "are examples of tie fondness that great statesmen and military men nave so generally entertained for the horse and sport of the turf. Though equally bold and aggressive riders In the field, General Jackson was the more successful on the course. The racing annals of the west record his numerous victories, and according to- the anecdotes which are told of him, he sometimes intimidated his adversaries of the boldness of defiance, where he might not have won by the speed or bottom of his horse. One of General Jackson's closest friends was the Rev. H. M. Cryer, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, who was a breeder of thoroughbred horses and who raced one of them in the name of his part-- , ner. Col. Geo. Elliott, The reverend gentleman, having beqn charged with horse racing, was summoned before the tribunal and asked if he had anything to say in his defense ; "nothing,", was his reply, "except that I would like to have you let me know how I can arrange it for my half of the horse to stand in the stable while Col. Elliott's half 'is racing. The horse belongs to us jointly. He has the same right to control him that I have ;' and .he will race him and I cannot keep him - !

Yet, in the added light of the New Testament the church has larger, iy lost the consciousness of her stewardship. Listen to the rugged words of Deuteromony which need to be reechoed in our day "Beware lest when thou hast built goodly houses; and when thyselves and gold is multiplied, then thine heart be lifted up and thou forget the Lord thy God and say in .thine heart, "My power and the might of mine hand have gotten me .this wealth." We are forbidden selfish accumulations. Lay not up treasures upon the earth. Jesus teaches that wealth for ourselves is both and aunnecessaro; dangerous because it tends to become our master, and divorce us from God; unnecessary, because our needs do not require it.
