Beginning last Friday and Saturday the Basket Ball Tournament for the State championship opened at Lexington, boys and gins. A number of clubs entered throughout the State, the High School team of Columbia being one of the number. Before the game started it was generally considered that the Lexington team was the crack organization of the State, and in drawing for meets Columbia and Lexington were pitted against each other, and they played the first game. When it closed Lexington had 54 scores and Columbia 4. The result of this contest eliminated the team here from further participation in the games. We have not space to give all the contests, but taking everything in consideration Columbia did real well and was well pleased with its trip. The final contest came between Lexington and Frankfort. This game was to decide the championship and went to Lexington It won by defeating Frankfort 57 to 7. Frankfort did but little better than Columbia, and the latter club does not feel it was humiliated. Our boys were backed by a large delegation from this place, who are proud of the showing the team made. The Lindsey- - Wilson girls who won in this district, did not go to Lexington and we know but little about the girls' contest. HAMBONE'S MEDITATIONS Farmers Attention.

Instead, he runs into a funeral that of Dad Calkins, a retired army man of whom little Is known. A girl, still in her teens, survives Calkins. CHAPTER II. McCarthy, a saloonkeeper and Ponca's leading citizen, decides that the girl, now alone in the world, should marry. Shelby starts a hunt for eligible husbands and the minister goes to confer with the girl. CHAPTER III. She agrees to pick a buaband from a score of men lined up In her home. To his consternation, she selects Shelby, who had gone along merely U & spectator. He declines the honor. XHdlgnant, the girl dismisses the assemblage. Later, Shelby goes back to make an explanation. She receives him good B&turedly. "He travel with Matt Hanley an' get lost; so he say." "Hanley, hey! That's some recommendation. Who else was with your party?" "A man called Hank." "Slagin.

The wedding takes place and the couple sat out for Shelby's ranch. With them Is the "Kid." Macklin, whom Shelby has hired as a helper on the ranch. On the way the girl tells her husband her name Is Olga Carlyn, and also tells him something of the peculiar circumstances of her life. horses. Returning, lie is struck from behind by an unknown assailant. Hours later he recovers consciousness, to find that his wife and the "Kid" have disappeared. He starts in pursuit CHAPTER VII. Shelby overhears a conversation between two outlaws that throws some light on his wife's history. He learns she is an heiress and that her abduction has been planned. He also learns that she has been taken to "Wolves Hole," a haunt of bandits and "bad" Indians. The whereabouts of the place Is unknown to Shelby, though its reputation as a resort of criminals is widespread. CHAPTER VIII. Shelby lays plan? to rescue liis wife. He Is discovered by "Indian Joe" Laud, the leader of the outlaws, and forced to accompany him into the stronghold. There Shelby makes friends with a Mexican girl, Pancha, who is betrothed to Macklin and intensely jealous. "Buenas dias, senor," he said harshly, staring.

Neither man so much as glanced back toward Shelby, seemingly indifferent as to what he chose to do. Yet lie knew the customs of the West and that if ha failed them now no future falsehood would ever regain their confidence. He swung into the saddle and rode silently forward behind Juan. The cattle were still out of sight ahead, but ttiy could hear the calls of the drivers. Shelby pressed his bronco up closer to the Mexican, who had lit a cigarette. "Is it far. Juan?" he asked.

True, he a Sioux in blood, yet it was well known that he had been adopted into the tribe and never failed to have a hand in their deviltry. Army officers claimed be possessed more influence over them for evil than any chief, and Shelby had heard him mentioned with Sitting Bull as leaders in the ghost-dancIf true, then he must know how far to venture, and just when to draw aside so as to save himself. That must be it to him war meant only an opportunity to plunder. The final result was clearly Indian defeat; he would keep out, but in the meanwhile profit all he could. The trail led downward at a rather steep grade, in spite of continual curvI ing. The horses moved faster than the cattle, and before the outfit reached the level of the valley the three riders had closed in on the Indian drivers. Shelby knew them at once as young Sioux warriors, and was again able to distinguish plainly the brand on the flank of the steers bringing up the rear of the herd. They were unquestionably his own stock, and. in spite of his rage, he could not be entirely Indifferent to the grim humor of the situation he was being guided into Wolves' hole by the very men who had robbed him. Yet ids thaughts did not dwell upon this so much just then, as on the mad chance he had assumed in this adventure. What could he accomplish? What hope was there that he would ever emerge again alive? He was going forward blindly, led by fate, with not even a plan of guidance.

In some way be must avoid them both, and yet no plan presented itself to promise escape. He coidd only drift helplessly, becoming more despondent of success with every step of advance. It was already dusk when they attained the level of the valley, and the overshadowing bluffs rose high on either hand, leaving them plodding through the gloom. Vet even here they had not attained the full depression of the Hole, which required another sharp descent along the border of the stream, where a ledge of rock had evidently been blasted out. This passage abruptly ended in a wide, stone causeway, turning sharply to the left, and running beneath a waterfall, where the broad stream leaped over a ledge of high rock. It was a task to get the cattle through, yet once started, they plunged forward, following each other with fright, never pausing until they scattered out over the plain below. Laud drew up Ills horse in front of a small log structure, so concealed at the edge of a straggly grove, that, in the gloom, Shelby was not even aware of its existence unfil voices greeted them.

There are about 1,700 enrolled, excluding the Training School. We have about eleven here from Adair county. This is more than were here last year, but this is small compared with other counties. I think every one should be in school some place if possible. The destiny of the State, to a great extent, rests in the hands of the teacher, and to have a better Kentucky, we must have better qualified teachers. There is a splendid corps of teachers here and each teacher takes special interest in any one who really tries to do something. Everyone is courteous to new students and tries to make them feel at home. The churches and Sunday schools are more than glad to welcome the students to their services. There is also some great work being done in the athletics fields. The girls varsity team (basket ball team) trained by Miss Cherry, holds the championship of the State. The boys have also done splendid in the games. Board and rooms may be secured at reasonable prices and special care is taken of all the girls.
