Senior Class Night. The people of Columbia were delightfully entertained at the C. H, S. Gym last Thursday night by the members of the Senior Class and other members of the High School. Twenty girls sang beautifully "SDrine." Truly, the manner in which they presented the song was well in keeping with the name. These girl awere dressed in rainbow colors and on the stage appeared as a mist of color strongly suggesting the beauty and purity of Spring. To Mrs. C. M. Russell is due the credit for the charm and expression with which they sang. At the request of many who attended "Untangling Tony" in March, the play was repeated. The Senior class was assisted In this by Misses Mary HAMBONE'S MEDITATIONS TAIN' NO ST'-KEEPU- Columbia Loses to St. Marys. One of I Narrow Escape. Last Tuesday morning Mrs. Bert' Antle and her little sister were coming to town, about one mile from tewn the horse became frightened at a roller that was tied to a wagon. The horse ran down a steep hill and turned the buggy over, dragging them until the horse broke loose. They were thought to be hurt seriously for a few days Dr. Cartwright was called to see them as soon as they got to town. They were not able to be taken home for several days. It Is Dot often that Columbia and vicinity have had the pleasure of listening to more able addresses than the two delivered here last Sunday fore noon and evening. The first speaker was Dr. J. Lapsley McKee, of Kansas City, who addressed an immense throng of people at the Presbyterian church, directing his discourse in the main to the graduating $3lass of the Columbia High School. His text was Christ, the Ideal, and it was bandied in a most entertaining manner. He is a very easy speaker, and upon this occasion he seemed to be in proper condition for his very able address. At the close, the audl-enc- e was outspoken in pronouncing it scholarly, forceful, entertaining, abounding in most wholesome thoughts, given in language that was perfect, but in that simplicity that the young could readily understand. The speaker himself had the best of training, being a son of the late Dr. J. L McKee, who was a favorite in Columbia, and the first principal of the Presbyterian Male and Female High School, beginning in 1856. While the speaker was a stranger to the residents of this place he was most happily entertained in the homes, stopping with Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Coffey and friends of the McKee family constantly called. Mr. McKee was profuse In complimenting the town and the many friends he met who knew and admired his sainted father. The music was furnished by Mrs. C. M. Russell and chorus. The commencement address for this school will be delivered by Dr McKee, at same church, At 7:30 o'clock the audience moved to the Methodist church and were highly entertained with an address by Dr. J. G. Akin, pastor of the .church of Lebanon, who is also a captivating speaker and most successful worker for God. He spoke before the graduating class of the Lindsey-Wil-soand he handled his subject, Christ the King, in a most convincing manner, and his address was very pleasing to the many in attendance. He gave the names of three men, Napoleon, Alexander the Great and Kaiser Bill, who undertook to conquer the world', but the hand of God inter-ferre- d and they went down in defeat. His idea, as we understood, was to follow the Star of Bethlehem-Jude- a and all would be well. Dr. Akin is a self made man. He was born and reared at Burkesville, his parents being in straightened circumstances, but when quite a lad he decided to become a Methodist preacher. Bright, and full of ambition, he arranged to be educated at Elkton, finishing at Yanderbilt University, about fifteen years ago. He and Rev. R V. Bennett were classmates in both institutions. The commencement address, next Friday night, will also be delivered by Dr. Akin, and it will be in the chapel. It will be worth while for the people of this and neighboring communities to hear this address, as it will not only be of interest to the class, but all who may hear it The music for Sunday nights address was furnished by Miss Lucile Bushong, Mrs R. T. Bennett and a solo by Mrs. J. O. Russell and the class. t. n, Lind-sey-Wilso- H SENSE BR TE CHEATIN' the hardest fought ball games ADAIR CIRCUIT COURT OF KENTUCKY. S. S. ME OOTEN MAH MONEY.

For the second time In three months firemen early battled with a stubborn fire on the roof of the trensury department which for a time assumed menacing proportions as the flames, burning through a long superstructure, leaped high in the air and cast a threatening glow on the "White House itself, wliile sparks wafted across to its sur- Washington, May 4.

You performed your duty and the American heart is true, it is going to perform its duty in phowlng you its appreciation." McCumber's words rang out from the historic main steps of the national jcapitol over a plaza crowded with 3,000 veterans and spectators gathered to jsee the formal presentation to congress of the million-nam- e soldier bonus pe- rounding terrace. Said to be the oldest bank president in the District of Columbia, and one of the oldest In the entire United States, is Charles Carroll Glover, seventy-six years old, president of the Rlggs National bank. Mr. Glover has been In the employ of Rlggs & Co. since he was nineteen years old, and became the executive head when he was twenty-six- . He is widely known as the "Father of the Park System In Washington." When discovered about 1:40 a. m. the flames already had gained considerable hetfdway and were soaring to a height of thirty or forty fet when fire apparatus, responding to five alarms, arrived at the scene. Gaining impetus about that time from a dull, rumbling explosion, which firemen believe was caused by building materials stored for use In the present work of raising the roof of the structure, the blaze cast a bright glow on the night sky over the entire downtown section before It began to subside under the effect of water from a dozen hose lines. The White House and Washington monument stood out In sharp relief In the fantastic light of the flames. Hardings Watch Blaze. Awakened by White House attendants, President and Mrs. Harding dressed and from a window watched the firemen battle the flames in the nearby structure. When checked after about thirty minutes' effort, the flames had burned entirely through one section of the superstructure which tops the section of the building that divides the court and had spread to parts of the central portion of the roof. Unofficial estimates, however, place the damage at not more than $75,000, although it is not known whether this adequately took into account the possible damage from water which it was believed might be considerable in the court section of the building immedi ately under the central blaze. The new roof structure in other portions was said to have been only slightly damaged and not burned through, which would reduce the damage from water In other sections of the building.

This is the fatal objection to such legislation, in the opinion of the President, and it is on this point that the President will have to be satisfied before he will give jhis approval to the measure. Coinmit-ite-e members hope they can overcome the President's objections by pointing jout that some of the interest on the Jforeign debt will be in the treasury by the time payments under the bill become due. The revised plan was submitted to the committee members by Senator McCumber, chairman, who said he pro-mosed it merely as a basis to work on, in the hope that a satisfactory solution of the bonus legislation question might be evolved after the features of the plan had been carefully studied.

The general public and representatives of the press alike were denied permission to pass within the line, which had made it difficult to ascertain the exact extent Undersecretary of of the damage. the Treasury Clifford was early on the scene to take charge of the protection of the building and the cordon of marines was still maintained there at an early hour. The blaze apparently was of much the same- nature as that which occurred on the treasury roof during office hours, when hundreds of employees were in the building, on last February 8. This was extinguished without heavy damage, although a threatening blaze resulted from the burning of much scaffolding and some of the new roof structure.

Largest Establishment of Its Kind in the World Action Follows Dismissal of 29 Bureau Chiefs. Washington, April 10. Divisions of the bureau of engraving and printing, engaged in the production of bank notes, bonds and postage stumps, was closed Saturday for an indefinite period for the purpose of taking an inventory of the plant from which James L. Wllineth and 28 chiefs, superintendents and foremen were removed by presidential order one week ago. Decision to close at least the principal portions of the big plant, the largest of its kind in the world, was disclosed following a conference between Louis Hill, the newly appointed director, division chiefs of the bureaus and treasury officials. The closing was eifected under an order issued by Secretary Mellon of the treasury, under which department the bueau operates. The purpose of the closing order, as stated by officials, Is to enable the taking of an inventory, the repairing of machinery in use almost continuously since the entrance of the United States into the World war, and to allow the transfer department of the bureau to issue new plates such as are used In the printing of the nation's currency. The Inventory, it is said, will be undertaken by treasury accountants and department of justice agents. Hints also were given that during the closing the bureau would be further reorganized or "Hardlngized" as one official put It. Installation of the new steel plates, It is said, will be for the purpose of preventing counterfeiting of the various bank notes and bonds printed in the plant as the old plates had become so worn that It was found that prints taken from them were comparatively easy to counterfeit. The bureau employs about.6,000 persons, and it was estimated that about 4,000 of the total would be affected by the closing. The total employees number about 1,500 above the prewar personnel and It was suggested In some quarters that during the suspension reduction to the prewar level would be brought about. con-Sjcts- ss opposi-x&na,:- as J Jl Democrat, Kentucky, and Meyer Lon don, Socialist, New York.

About May 1, is the time to variesow the wrinkled-seede- d ties of peas. Planting them or three about two and inches deep is said to prolong the bearing period. In placing cabbape, tomato, egg plant or any other plants that are set in the garden, it is best to keep the ground level, according to gardeners at the College of Agriculture. This brings the'r&ots of the plants nearer the water table and prevents excessive evaporation of moisture. This is the season of the year when it is necessary to keep the ground in good cultivation to prevent baking which often keeps many young plants from breaking through the soil. ' Much baking or crusting usually follows heavy rains. In planting the large growing varieties of seas, it is a good idea to plant two rows about eight to ten inches apart and then place the netting or sticks between the two. Economy in staking is thus made possible by making one row of netting serve two oows of peas. one-ha- lf -- flooded when-th- e levee gives way.

I could not but help think of a certain section of our good Kentucky congregations to whom the sine qua non of a sermon is, that it shall close so that they will not miss dinner at 12:30 at the very latest.
