Mr. Taylor secured the services of Miss Elizabeth Spencer.who has for a number of years had her voice recorded for the Edison phonogragh, and Mr. Emil Bertl, a finished pianist, to demonstrate. to the.public the wonderful ability of the Edison phonograph to reproduce the human voice and musical instruments. Miss Spencer sang with her records many "beautiful numbers and it was impossible for the audience to tell when she was singing and when it was the recorded voice, unless they could see the singers. The piano numbers, artistically rendered by Mr. Bertl, were equally as hard to distinguish from the records The church was crowded with an enthusiastic audience and it can be safely said that the entire audience was convinced that Thomas A Edison has produced a perfect phonograph. If you are considering buying a phonograph Mr. Taylor will be glad to show you the Edison at Russell & Taylor's drug store Columbia, Ky., Oct. 4th, 1921.

She turned the letter over In her lap In order that Fayne might not see, accidentally or otherwise, the address. "Jimmy," she finally said, 'Td like to hare a little more time to think about It Things like this oughtn't to be decided In a hurry." "You've already had months I Or were they, years or ages? Why do you keep putting me off like this, Elizabeth?" "As He Interrupted almost sharply: "I know you don't love me. But you'll learn to after you've seen how much I shall adore you." He made a move as though to take her into his arms, and she shrank from him; he had done that same thing, and she had done that same thing, dozens of times before. . . . With unseeing eyes Elizabeth watched Mrs. Dale step from her motor at the and go Into the house. Jimmy Fayne, too, saw Mrs. Dale, but he was wholly unaffected by the sight of her; Mrs. Dale, somehow, did not object to his seeing the girl quite as much as she had once objected. "Jimmy," after a long silence had passed between them, "I I'm afraid I ain't the right woman for you. . . . If you knew, for sure, that I once took a rifle gun and killed a man with It, would you would you still want me?" Fayne laughed as though at a good joke. "You kill a man? Why, 1 couldn't believe It. But If you bad killed a man, or a dozen men, it It could hardly make any difference to me. If you did do it, you did It because there was nothing else to do; I'm sure of that. We won't mention it again. If you're willing. I neither criticize nor attempt to understand your hill codes. Marry me, won't you, Elizabeth?" "If I did," asked Ben Llttleford's daughter, "would you help my people back In the hills?" "Educate 'em? Yes I Every blessed one of 'em." "Freely?" "Yes!" Once more Elizabeth LIttleford tried to decide. Fayne's eyes grew more and more hopeful as he watched her lips. He became Impatient. "Tell me," he begged. The girl took up the letter she had Just received from Bill Dale. "As soon as I read this," she murmured, "I'l tell you, Jimmy. If you don't mind, please look the other way for a minute." She tore off one end of the envelope, drew out the single sheet and unfolded It. Her eyes uarrowed; her face flushed, and then became just a little pale. Her underlip quivered as she folded the sheet and put It back into porte-cochere I told you, Jimmy, 1 don't" trouble." Dale went on: "At By Heck's sigto nal, I'll get on my horse and the lowlands for the Morelands. 1 can get them a lot quicker than I can get competent help from the law. What do you think of It?" "It's a good plan, I reckon." growled Ben LIttleford, "only I don't cotton very easy to the Idee o' us from the mine to this here bulldin'. I never did like to run from any man wo'th a durn, Bill." "But that wouldn't be cowardly." Dale protested. "It would be purely a strategic move, and It would save lives for ns. For, when the Balls and their kinsmen come, you'll have to deliver me Into their hands or you'll have to fight like the very devil, that's sure; and, according to By Heck's figures, they outnumber you more than two to one." "All right," LIttleford replied, with a shrug of his huge shoulders. "Whatever you say, that same we'll do." So By Heck was sent for, and shortly afterward he sneaked Into the laurels and went off toward the settlement of the Balls. In the crook of bis arm he carried bis rifle, and inside his shirt he carried three pieces of dynamite all ready for the match and he chose every step with great care for fear of jarring the explosive too much. He had not been gone an hour when Bill Dale heard a dull, smothered roar from somewhere to the northward. Dale sprang up from his desk, ran to his ready and waiting horse, mounted and rode like a streak toward the lowland. Dale arrived at John Moreland's big white farmhouse a little before the middle of the day. and halloed lustily at the gate. John Morel and and his two sons hurried out In response to the call. Dale waved aside all greetings and Inquiries after his health, and told that which he had come to tell. The elder Moreland turned quickly to his two stalwart sons "Guns and bosses, boys I It'll be our last fight, and le's be at It and make It a good fight" Less than five minutes later the three erstwhile mountaineers rode out at the barnyard gate with full belts of t 9 BIG REDUCTION IN PRICES '0. 9 Chevrolet Automobiles Are Now Down. 9 Bead the Reductions as Given by PRICES ON 9 WOOD LEWIS 490 Touring Gar $525.00.

Mrs. Etos Barger, -- H HOIS' Proved Last Thursday Evening to Columbia n; hW s wvr- - m 3 vO- - V" '? J Hon. Lilburne Phelps, Secretary of the Republican State Committee, addressed the people of Adair county, at the courthouse, last Monday. He is opposed to the adoption of amendment No, 1, and so advised the voters. ThiB amendment is to take the election of the State Superintendent out of the hands of the people, and let that office be filled by appointment, the advocates claiming that such an action would take the office of State Superintendent out of poli tics. Mr. Phelps' position is that to adopt the amendment would not take the office of State Superintendent out of politics, that when the Republicans were in power a Republican would be named as State Superintendent and vice versa when the Democrats were in power. Mr. Phelps is right and every voter in Adair county, Republican and Democrat should cast his suffrage against the amendment. No man or woman in Adair county should fail to vote against said amendment. Let the people say who they want for State Superintendent not leave it to a few men to say. This State has long been governed by the voice of the people and that right should not be removed by amendment which will silence the electorate at the polls. !The speech of Mr. Phelps was a strong presentation of the question, and the voters should heed his admonition. In our Judment Adair county is almost solidly against the amendments and will Mo vote. Mr. Phelps was Introduced by Hon. J. F. Montgomery, who also spoke in telling words against the amendment-- Big Audienge at Christian Church Hears Elizabeth Spencer in EDISON Tone-Test In a test of direct comparison, made last Thursday evening at the Christian Church, before a large audience, the New Edison scored a complete and convincing triumph. Elizabeth Spencer, the famous soprano, sang in direct comparison with the Recreation of her voice by the New Edison To every ear, there was no difference between her living voice and her Re- created voice. This is the most drastic phonograph test known. No other phonograph has ever sustainsd it. No other phonograph has ever attempted it. The New Edison's marvelous performance of last Thursday vindicates every- thing that has been said or claimed for its perfect realism. Elizabeth Spencer stood on the stage next to a shapely Chippendale cabinet. She began to sing. Her golden notes soared over the auditorium, bringing all under its magic spell. 00 Reli-giou- Halfway through her song she suddenly stopped singing. Th6 New Edison, at her side, took up her song, and continued it alone. Singer and phonograph thus alternated throughout the song. The only way the audience could be sure which was singing, was by watching Miss Spencer's lips, so exactly like the voice. living voice was the Emil Bertl made the same test of comof his piparison with the ano selections. Again the same result there was no difference between the Recreated performance and the living performance. Proof was piled upon proof! Evidence was massed on evidence! The end of the concert found the audience absolutely and completely convinced, through its own personal experience, that there is no difference between an artist's living performby the New ance and its Edison, that listening to the New Edison is in literal truth, the same as listening to the living artists.

It will not only be a protection in the event of fire, but will lower insurance rates. The largest amount of the money now subscribed was paid in by the business men on the square. Residences burn as well as store houses, therefore, every family in Columbia should not hesitate to hand in a subscription. Mr. Reed with what assistance he may take, was appointed to select a a fire company of ten men who will be in charge of the apparatus, and he will also select ten reserve men, making twenty in all, ten to be active at all times. When the machine arrives these men will go into training and will practice until they are perfect in all the details of management. Our people 'certainly feel glad that this step has been taken, as it will in all probability, in course of time, save this town and its citizti.s thousands of dollars. When the company is ready for practice, the State Fire Marshal will come to Columbia, give instructions and drill the boys. The company will elect, or be will be appointed by the Board, a Chief of the Fire Department. The News endorses this action of the Board, believing that it acted wisely in purchasing the apparatus.

Then they all whipped to the other side of their sheltering timber. The answer came at once: "I'm Bill Dale, and I'm peeved I You're at the mercy of the finest hill clan that ever looked along rifle barrels; will you surrender, or fight It out?" "You said it we'll fight It out!" cried a burly cousin of Black Adam Ball, deceased. "You're on!" growled Bill Dale, slipping his rifle out beside the tree. "Give 'em h I, boys!" He was unused to this sort of thing, and he was incautious. He showed a little too much of himself there was a sudden keen report from below, and a bullet hole appeared In the rim of his hat! John Moreland fired the nest shot, and he broke the right arm of the man who had just fired at Bill Dale. This opened the battle in earnest. Soon the thunder of the many rifles became almost a steady roar. The air was filled with the pungent odor of burning powder. Bill Dale emptied the magazine of his repeater, and sank behind the big chestnut to fill it again with cartridges from his belt Bullets now whined on both sides of him; they cut greenish white furrows in the bark of both sides of the tree, and knocked up little spurte of black earth to his right and to his left; they cut off twig3 within an arm's reach of him. A dozen Balls were now firing at him, seeking to avengo the death of their kinsman, the Goliath. John Moreland's strong voice came to him through the din and roar: "Don't show no part o yoreself now, Bill; ef ye do, ye'U shore be hitl" Dale fired again, pumped a fresh cartridge into the chamber of bis rifle and slipped another into Use magazine, and arose behind the chestnut. "Down, Bill!" cried John Moreland. If Dale heard, he gave no sign of it. He flred four shots rapidly, and before the wind had carried away the blinding smoke be was behind another tree and shooting toward the Balls again. Soon there came a short, loud peal of laughter from his left; he turned his head and saw Ben Llttleford taking a careful aim at a long angle toward the side of a boulder. Then Llttleford fired, and a puff of stone dust showed that his bullet had gone true to Its mark. "What's that for?" demanded Dale.

"I had a different plan 'an that planned out, John," said By Heck, winking at Ben Llttleford. "I had It planned out to hang 'em all on a big green hemlock as a Christmas tree fo Bill! Some devilish rough Christmas Bill, old boy, ain't eve ye're It?" "Rather," smiled Dale. He closed his eyes. His head ached, and he was somehow very tired. Within the hour he went to sleep, and when he awoke it was daylight on Christmas morning. Ben Littleford. half dressed, was stirring the coals stone fireto life in the place. Dale felt better than he had expected to feel; he greeted Llttleford with the compliments of the season, arose and dressed himself. Littleford had just gone with a handful of kindling wood toward the kitchen, when there was a low, light tapping at the outside door of Dale arose from Bill Dale's room rocker before the his sheepskin-linecheery log fire, wont to the door and opened it. Before him stood a slim, barefoot ooy in the poorest of rags; in the pitifully slender arms there was something wrapped rather loosely In crumpled brown paper. Dale did not remember having seen the lad before, but he knew It was no Llttleford. "Come in, son." he Invited cordially "come In and warm yourself. My goodness alive. It's too cold to go barefooted like that I Haven't you any shoes, son?" "Shoes?" muttered the boy, queerly. "Shoes?" He was shivering from the cold. His thin face looked pinched and blue, his eyes big and hollow. Dale stooped, picked him up bodily, carried him to the old rocker he had just vacated, and put him into it with hands as gentle as any woman's. "H I." began the boy, staring wide-mouthe- Taste is a matter of tobacco quality We state it as our honest belief that the tobaccos used in Chesterfield are of finer quality (and hence of better taste) than in cigarette at the price. r any-othe- d Liggett Sc Myers Tobacco Co.

Mountain su- J hard "what " away !" s- "Why, replied Bill," Llttleford. "didn't ye never bounce a bullet offen a rock and make it go toward a man ahlnd of a tree?" It lasted hotly for two hours, but the casualties were comparatively few, because there was so much cover available. From the beginning the Balls and the Turners had the worst of it, which was due to uphill shooting, white whisky, and lack of the iron that makes real fighting men. The cartridges of those below were giving out : they had fired too many shots needlessly. "It's about time to rush them," Dale ald to John Moreland. who had crept up beside him. "Jest give the word," Moreland nodded. A few minutes later. Bill Dale sent the wings of Ids line down the moune tainside, forming a of his force once more; then the whole line rushed, surrounded the enemy and called for a surrender. But the Balls and their kinsmen wouldn't give in yet. They left their cover and started to run, found themselves facing Morelands and Little-fordIn every direction, clubbed their rifles and fought It was not true courage that prompted them to offer resistance thus: it was utter despera tion; they had never been givers of mercy, therefore they did not expect mercy. Dale's men forebore to fire upon them, which was at Dale's command, and met them- - with clubbed rlflps. The woodland rang with the ?ound of wood and steel crashing against wood and steel. Everywhere there were groans and threats and curses from the losing side, victorious crifs and further demands for a surrender from the winners. Bill Dale, ever a lover of fair combat, threw down his repeater to grapple with a big North Carolinian whose .lubbed weapon had been knocked from his hands. The two fell and rolled down the mountainside, locked in each other's arms. And then one of the Balls struck Bill Dale across the head with the butt of his empty gun. and Bill Dale slackened his arms and lay as one dead. half-circls. under-jjpKsw- th en-can- sc "Now stick your feet out and warm them, son that's It," and Dale chafed feet the poor little, dirty, and legs. "Son." he went on after a moment his heart throbbing out of sheer pity, "you go to the commissary clerk and tell him to dress you up like the crown prince of England, if he's got It, and charge the same to the account of Bill Dale. It will be my Christmas gift to you, little boy. What's your name?" The lad turned his surprised black eyes upon the face of the big and man. "Are you Bill Dale?" "Yes." That which the boy said next struck half-froze- n sun-brown- perstitions always amued him. Ben Littleford came Into the room, and Dale arose and faced him. "Do you know this boy. Ben?" "It's Lyss l!:iir hoy." answered puckering his Llttleford, brows. "What's he here?" "He brought a Christmas present for me." said !ali "but he has decided that I shan't have It." "The only Christmas present you could git from a Ball would be a bullet" frowned Ben Littleford. He stepped to the rocker and took the bundle from the boy's lap: he took away the crumpled brown pa- per and there In hts hands was a loaded and cocked revolver! "By George!" exclaimed Bill Dale. "What'd I tell ye?" smiled Ben Littleford. An hour later Dale and a score of Llttlefords and Morelands entered the big downstairs room of the office and supplies building. The defeated Balls and Turners lounged here and there, sullen and silent, on the rough-boarfloor of their temporary prison. Dale walked Into their midst and addressed them quietly. "You'll admit, won't y u. that Tvej got what you fellows call 'the dead- - j wood' on you? And that it lies in my power to send every single one of you to the state penitentiary?" "I reckon so," admitted Adam Ball's father. He was pretty well cowed, and so were the others. "But I've decided not to do It" went on Bill Dale. "I can't forget that this Is Christmas day. You may have your liberty as a present from the man you've tried so hard and so unjustly to kllL After the doctor gets through with Little Tom and Saul Llttleford, he will come here to dress all your wounds; then our guards will give you back your rifles, and you may go home. I'm not asking you to promise me anything, you understand. I'm simply trusting the human heart, and I don't believe I'll be disappointed." Dale turned to John Moreland. Moreland's rugged face wore a puzzled, displeased smile. "If your brother David was here," Bill Dale demanded with a bare shade of auger In his voice, "what do you think he'd do about It? It's Christmas day, isn't It?" The old Moreland chiefs countenance softened; his grey eyes brightened. "Yes," he said, "it's Christmas day, Bill" He looked toward the Balls and Turners. "Merry Christmas, gen'lemenl" he said.
