Music lovers of Prominent Physician Dead. Dr. Nathan M.

To the Voters of Adair County: Some weeks ago the governing authority of my party met in convention and unanimously requested that I become a candidate for the office of County Attorney at the coming November election. Added to this, also, has been the personal solicitations of many Republicans asking that I make the race AH this has been without solicitation on my part. Knowing the condition of affairs in Adair county as I do, and knowing the necessity that something should .be done, I consider these request made on me as a call to duty which 1 feel that I am compelled to heed. The County Attorney is the most important County officer which you elect because r e has, or 'can have, more influence in shaping the fiscal affairs of the county than any other man in the county, and in him, and within his reach, is vested almost the means to bring about the enforecement of law. The condition of vour fiscal affairs is, perhaps, not fully known to all of you, but you do know that you are. paying more taxes than you ever paid before. You have paid during the first three years of the present administration, the year, 1921, not being considered, because the taxes this year have not yet been collected, an average of over fifteen thousand dollars per year more than was collected by the administration preceding this one for local purposes. Notwithstanding the fact that there has been exacted from you these large sums in taxes, the County Treasurer informs me that there has been presented to him for payment claims allowed prior to (1921 amounting to over Thirteen thousand dollars, and that he had on hands no money to pay these claims, The law makes the County Attorney the legal advisor of all the County officers, and also makes it his duty to be present at each sitting of your Fiscal Court and to see tl.ac the court does not go beyond the limits provided by law in making allowances, and to see that no claim without merit shall be allowed, and you are to. judge as to whether the present County Attorney has been as attentive ,to his duties as he should have been especially since he has drawn in salary dur ing his term twice as much as any other man who ever held the office. It seems needless that I should call your attention to the inexcusable and deplorable lack of law enforce meat in this community, because this .fact of .failure to enforce law has be come a matter of common knowledge to all men. I believe in the enforcement of law regardless of who the offender may be, and I believe in the economical administration of your financial affairs, and should you elect me, I pledge to you that I will employ every agency provided by law to accomplish these results. I shall shortly have an appointment in your neighborhood at which time I will fully place these conditions" beAd fore you. very truly, Yours Gordon Montgomery. for publication.

Take the matter of locomotion as an example. There was a time when the rich man was glad to ride on a donkey or in an oxcart. The poor man walked. Then some ancient genius devised the carriage for the benefit of the rich. The poor man climbed into the old cart or straddled the donkey. But the man of nothing was not satisfied. He wanted something. He commenced to climb into the carriage. In time he began to own them. With the poor man bowling along in his carriage, the rich man bethought himself of a new toy one beyond the reach of common folks. The automobile made it appearance, with its honk in front and its smell trailing along behind. The rich man was again in a class by himself. He whizzed by old Dobbin and scared him out of his wits or drove him into the ditch. But it did't last. The poor man was stubborn in his determination to keep the pace. He declined to stay down. Again time worked its wonders. It saw the poor man climbing into the rich man's car. Today it sens him owning his own car. But evolution continues its work. The rich man is now only one of the many. He has no class of his own. Therefore he is turning his eye toward the aeroplane as a means of locomotion. Some day he will abandon his car and travel in the air again above the common herd. But even that will not last. There will be no selection for him even in the clouds. The poor man will get there, too. It is a great race, with the rich man sprinting to keep a few laps ahead and the poor man following with mighty leaps and bounds in is efforts to keep The In this way we would have a congress more representative of the true sentiments of the people, a congress more devoted to the welfare of all of the people as a whole and less so to certain interests that work while we sleep. ?

A contributing factor in the success of the new organization is the low price of tobacco last year and another is the low price being paid on the South Carolina and North Carolina markets this year. Heretofore the price of Southern tobacco has been higher than that of burley. This year, according to official reports from North and South Carolina, published in the Western Tobacco Journal, of Cincinnati, and other trade papers, South Carolina tobacco is averaging but a small fraction over 8 cents a pound and North Carolina leaf but a little over 7 cents a pound, less than a third the price paid for tobacco in July last year. These facts have had a tendency to awaken the burley growers to the seriousness of the situation, since there is no reason apparent for believing that the manufacturers will run their business this year in a different way from previous years, and if that proves ,to be true, the price of burley tobacco will not reach even last sear's figure.

Dale loosened in Its holster the big revolver that Major Bradley had persuaded him to carry for his own protection. John Moreland had taught him how to use firearms. At a point near where the Httle stream that flowed past the Hallway switch emptied into Doe river, where Doe river turned almost squarely to the left, Dale halted abruptly. He had seen a man dart behind a scrubby oak srime thirty yards ahead of him ; quite naturally, he concluded that the fellow meant to waylay him, and he, too. stepped behind a tree, a big hemlock. A silent minute went by. Then Dale put his hat out on one side of the tree and peeped from the other side; It was an old trick that Grandpap More-lan- d had told him about.

You cain't hit my hat!" Dale's temper, the temper that had always been so hard to keep under control, rose quickly. He tried to reason, with himself,' and couldn't; his passfon mastered him. He snatched the big revolver from its holster and cocked It. With as steady a hand as ever held a weapon trained, he began to take aim at Ball's slouch hat, the half of which was in plain view at one side of the scrubby oak. "I fooled you once, back there In the middle of the river," he cried hotly, "and now I'm going to fool you "Quiet, there!" and there was aciiet. He continued: "Where is Mr. Etalmls revolver?"

The sounds of the shooting had carried far, and It wasn't long until .the scene of the tragedy was crowded with Balls and Torreys, Littlefords and Morelands. Major Bradley and Hayes, too, were there. Every man of them was armed; a very little thing might easily turn the place into a shambles. The major saw this, and he was afraid. He drew the leaders of the Morelands and the Littlefords asidt. and finally prevailed upon them to do their utmost toward keeping peace un . til the coming of the sheriff. rjiTrsni'ia j kiikmai 4f At first John Moreland and Ben Lit tleford were for taking Bill Dale from the Balls and Torreys who guarded him, if they had to depopulate the ' whole Ball settlement, Jerusalem Cove and Hatton's Hell to accomplish it! Happily, the major's counsel prevailed. Sheriff Tom Flowers was a tall and lithe, smooth-faceman. He arrived W, with Luke Moreland at noon, after riding.

There was In his voice that old, old primitive rage, which frightened him, and puzzled him too, in his better moments. He let down the bead until it was barely visible in the notch, and eased off the trigger. The revolver roared and spat forth a tiny tongue of flame and a little cloud of white smoke. Ball sprang erect, wheeled, and fell crashing to the leaves! Dale dropped his weapon. He went as white as death, and his two hands clutched uncertainly at his throat He was a murderer! No, he wasn't his bullet had gone wild; it had struck Balls head on the other side of the tree, hy accident. But how could he prove that it had been an accident? Would any jury believe him? It was far from probable. He stepped from behind the hemlock and went toward the writhing Goliath, whoso legs only were visible now. Then a third shot rang out on the morning stillness. It had been fired from a point some little distance away, and Dale's condition of mind at the moment was such that he didn't even note the direction from which the sound had come. He was unhurt, and he had not heard the whine of a bullet or the pattering of shot on the leaves. When he looked about him, he saw no one; neither did he see any telltale smoke. Perhaps, he thought dimly, it had been a squirrel-hunte- r that had fired that shot. He forgot about it very quickly for the time being, and went on toward Adam Ball, who now was lying perfectly .still. through and There was a bullet-holthrough the great, shaggy head. The face behind the short, curly black beard was of the colorless hue of oapstone. The giant hlllman was dead. Bill Dale knelt there beside Black-AdaAgain he clutched at his throat with his two shaking hands, and this time lie tore his blue flannel shirt. Ail the agony and all the remorse in the universe seemed to be gathering there in his heart. Never before had he seen death. Its grim presence terrified him. That the deplorable thing had been an accident, due to his faulty marksmanship, mattered little. He had killed a man, and the blood-rebrand of Cain was burning away on his brow ; he was a man in a hell of his own making. And kneeling there Bill Dale sobbed a great sob that shook his broad shoulders as a violent ague would have shaken them. He tried to look at the hole in the shaggy head; at the cruel, brutish face that was of the colorless Merciful tears hue of soapstone. blinded him, and he couldn't see. It was a compensation, a pitifully beautiful compensation. . . . Five minutes passed, five minutes that were as five years to this man who had never been in the presence of death before. Then he realized that he was being surrounded by kinsmen of the dead mountaineer. He looked up into their ashen, angry faces, and they cursed him. Big and gripping brown hands were placed upon him; several rifles we're turned upon him. He arose and spread out his arms, and offered his breast to the frowning muzzles. They could give him, at least, oblivion. "Shoot. If vou like." he said bitterly. "It was an aeciueui, y kuow, out shoot, if you like." Adam commanded "No," Ball's father, a slender and angular old man with a straggling beard "No, don't shoot Shootin's too quick, by gonnies. And 'en, It ain't accordin' to law."
