If we were attempting to answer this question we would say that it is simply for the want of the spirit of public enterprise in the part of its citizens. It is large enough in population, and it ought to be able to secure sufficient money to start the enterprise in a modest way. Great and lasting enterprises often, and in part most usually, grow from small beginnings. The law authorize the establishment of libraries in towns and taxation for the purpose of maintaining them. A small sum assured each year would be a wise provision, and doubtless, private aid could also be had. In fact, through the commendable efforts of Miss MinnieJTrip-let- t, the nucleus of a library has already been seccured. Through her efforts over four hundred books are being circulated and read in the community which have been bought and paid for. She should have not only individual, but also municipal support in this movement for the upbuilding of the community, for it is certainly a movement that will have that effect. Benjamin Franklin, the great philosopher and statesman, we believe, was the promotor of the firstjpubllc library In the United States, the Philadelphia public library, and in his autobiography he tells of its small beginning he says, "So few were the readers at that time in Philadelphia, and the majority of us so poor, that I was not able, with great industry, to find more than fifty persons, mostly young tradesmen, willing to pay for this purpose forty shillings each, and ten shillings per annum. On this litThe intle fund we. began. stitution soon manlfestedllts utility, was Imitated by other towns, and in other provinces. The libraries were augmented by donations, reading became fashionable, and ourf people having no public amusements to direct their attention, from study became better acquainted wlth'lbooks, and in a few years men observed byjstrangers to be better instructed and more intelligent than people of the same rank generally in other countries." Is it to our credit here in the town of Columbia a town of schools and churches, that we- - are nearly two hundred years behind this wise man as to the need of a library in our midst accessible to our children and the public? We ask again: Why can not Columbia have a public library? Is the answer given above a satisfactory answer? If it is not, will some one tell us why it is not? KE3ERVK DISTRICT NO. 8. Birthday Dinner. One of the most remarkable birthday dinners ever given in Adair county was spread at the home of Mr. E. A. McKinley, in honor of his wife, last Sunday, she being forty-onyears old. About ten o'clock friends commenced to arrive, and by the dinner hour two hundred and thirty-fiv- e parsons had put in their appearance. Early in the morning Mr. McKinley sent his wife to Eussell county under the pretext of looking after an important matter, and she did not know of the prepara tions that had been made to celebrate her birthday until she returned, aboufc 12 m., friends having commenced to spread the dinner. Dinner on the table, which was set; in the yard, long enough for all to be waited upon at the same time, was wonderful to behold. Quite a number of large hams, boiled whole, quarters of mutton, a large number of chick ens, salads of all kinds and cakes and pies in great abundance. Everything was prepared in a most appetizing manner, and it goes without saying that it was enjoyed to the fullest. After all the guests had retired from the table there was plenty of edibles left to have fed as many more. The dinner was largely complimented, and the guests surprised to see so much food cooked and managed by Mr. McKinley. Here is the way it was done. He perloined the ham3, chickens and eggs from his own home in order to keep his wife in the dark and delivered them to his neighbors for preparation, all the edibles sent to the home during Mrs. McKInley's ab sence. The delicacies he also had prepared away from home. When, dinner was announced the most inviting one we ever beheld, was before the guests. Thanks were returned by Eev. Donor, of Ohio, and In the usual length of time all was satisfied. After dinner, Mr. McKinley passed the cigars and after fragrant smokes,' there were singing and preaching, Eev. Donor delivering the discourse. Three gentlemen, who made a careful estimate of the cost of fhe dinner, placed It at $150. Mrs. McKinley1 was too happy to ex; press herself and she received a num ber of handsome and useful presents.' It was certainly a day of enjoyment) and those of Columbia who were hon? ored with invitations return thelrsin? cere thanks. e Not la many years, if ever, has more interest been taken than In this year in the closing exercises of Lindsey-WilsoNeither has this school ever finished a more successful year than the one just ending nor has the out look ever appeared as bright as at this time. The auditorium was crowded, many being forced to leave. Friday evening, where the graduating exercises were fully enjoyed by the immense gathering. The invocation was pronounced in well chosen words by Rev. Wade. Following thia was "Lovely Springtime," a chorus faultlessly rendered. Then came an essay entitled, "Sources of Power" well presented by Miss Ava Lockard. Mr. Frank Dillon next proved his ability as both a writer and speaker when he so well delivered n. Last Tuesday night a large audience gathered at the Presbyterian church to witness the commencement exercises in the Columbia High School, and to hear the address delivered by L. McKee, of Kansas City, Mo. 8:45 the graduating class, Misses At Virginia Smith, Ruth Miller, Pauline Allen, Mary Sinclair, Messrs Fred Jackman and Earl Blair, and the undergraduates marched down the aisle, Mrs. C. M. Russell being at the piano, and took their stand on the stage, the undergraduates singing most enchant-ingl- y Pixies Band. Invocation by Rev. Jesse L. Murrell, followed, then came the valedictory address, by Miss Virginia Smith, who spoke in a clear and distinct voice, meriting the many compliments that were passed upon her composition, delivered orally in a most graceful and happy manner. The graduating girls and thj under girl graduates were dressed in white, all wearing boquets and looking charmingly. The young men were most becomingly attired. Then came the violin solo Berceuse from "Jocelyn," by Miss Frances Russell, accompanied by her mother, Mrs. C. M. Russell, piano. It was a most delightful rendition, and was played as only an artist draws the Dr. bow. IS A MIGHTY PREACHER. CEPN ON Of THE TME CONDITION OF EXPOUNDS tE. WIT FIRST NATIONAL BANK.

He chose for his subject "The Perils of the Time" and he held the closet attention of the large audience during Its entire delivery. He was far from posing as a pessimist but at the same time he could not but see the urgent needs of the day and presented these truths with ringing force. At the close of the address, diplomas were presented by Rev. Bennett to the following young people, Misses Mary Brake, Frances Strange, Ava Lockard, Ethel Garnett, Messrs. Frank Dillon, Olie Johnson, Wood Grider, Henry Garnett and Lura Harrison. These worthy young people will be greatly missed when Lindsey openB her doors in September and their places are left vacant, but judging from the splendid record made by them while here, they will bring credit to this institution in whatever new paths they shall enter Mr. F. M.-- Green, a former teacher, offered a scholarship medal for the Training School department. When the final records were consulted it was found to be a tie between Misses Ethel Garnett and Margaret Hynes so the faculty gladly presented another medal. In his announcements Rev. Bennett told.something of the .plans for the coming year and without a doubt the day is very near when this community can boast of one of the best equipped schools to be found anywhere. It is sincerely hoped and believed that it will at an early date be converted into a Junior College and when this becomes a reality it will satisfy a desire long felt by the people of this section of the state. Big Day At Columbia Fair Grounds The address, by Dr. McKee followed his subject being "Ask Questions and Why." Last week we had an occasion to speak of the great ability of Dr. McKee and the audience knew that a treat was again in store for the assembly. When the speaker announced his subject we' asked what will he got out of it? We were not disappointed. It was full of knowledge and abounded in much information and splendid advice to the class, and was highly entertaining to the many who heard this very splendid address, came an appropriate speech from Prof. Prather, who delivered the diplomas.

Prizes in Penmanship Awarded in Lapsley McKee's visit to this place, last week, was highly ap predated by all who had the pleasure of meeting and conversing- with him. It was the first time he was ever in Columbia, being born in Louisville after his father, Dr. J. L McKee, removed from Columbia. The name, McKee, surrounded him with friends, as his lamented father was loved by the entire community. The son is in tellectually strong, an able and forceful speaker, and one of the easiest we ever conversationalists heard talk. While here he made h's home with Mr. and Mrs J. N. Coffey, the latter being a relative. Every attention was shown him. He went horse back riding into the farming sections with Mr. Coffey, and members of the family took him several strolls over Columbia and its suburbs. He said to us, before leaving, that he was enjoying his visit to the fullest, and that he would be glad to return some time in the future. - Dr. J. was very much gratified last Wednesday evening to greet an unusually large audience which assembled in the chapel and wings to witness the rendition of a program in the departments above mentioned Miss Bushong being the instructor in mu sic, and Miss Katie Murrell, Expression. The program was necessarily long, but it was good from the beginning, not a mistake made throughout.

He hitched at the rack of Davis Hardware Store, and when the bell rang he went to the services at the Methodist church. Services over, he drove to the home of Mr. Bruce Taylor to have his daughter, who was stopping there, accompany him home. After Miss Garnett had gotten into the buggy and the start was made, a nut came off and the buggy dropped. Fortunately the accident oocurred on a hillside and the vehicle was not upset. Neither Mr. Garnett nor his daughter were hurt, but it was a narrow escape. Miss Garnett returned to Mr. Tay lor's and Mr. Garnett rode home horseback. The next morning he secured another nut and returned for his buggy. In the buggy he found the nut which had been removed.

Wilton could never understand his secret feeling about Kitty. She was devoted to Joe. Perhaps that was what lay beneath his latent antagonism toward her. He was jealous of her. He was jealous of a woman's love for Joe. "I guess not!" said Joe Bostock again, pressing his hand hard down on Wilton's shoulder. And, in that instant, Wilton heard the crack of a rifle, and felt a violent blow on the upper part of the left arm, which knocked him to the ground. As he fell, Joe Bostock' pitched forward upon him. Twice Joe's lips quivered, as If he was trying to speak. Then the lower jaw dropped and the eyes rolled upward. A grayish pallor crept over the face. Wilton saw that Joe's mackinaw had a tiny tear in it, over the breast A trickle of blood seeped through the cloth. He wrenched the garment open with his right hand, pulled up the BiMuske 'r mW lin l1 VICTOR ROUSSEAUK 1 by, RiiLivingstoxie Jlp "'illustrations I AH tsss l.ww- n M W reots "of ;rthe trees, ana reellnf' d through a swimming-- world, he on and on and on. And neltner his anger nor the thought of Kitty could have kept his resolution through that nightmare of pain. It was all Joe now, the memory of Joe, his love for him, and his resolve that his friend's remains should not be torn by the sttg-geretimber-wolves.

Eighteen below; fair weather for December In New Manitoba, where the forest, though It chills the soil till midsummer, yet shuts out the razor-edg- e of the winds that make the prairies, farther south, an icy Inferno. Here the bush, which had seemed to stretch out inimitably, thinned Into bedraggled patches among the rocks. A little farther and it began once more ; the break was like a great, curving arm thrust into the heart of it, as if some iant fingers had plucked up the trees In handsful and scooped the foundation from the frozen soil, and then had been withdrawn, leaving the imprints of the great finger-tipwere huge sinkThese finger-tip- s holes, sometimes filled with water, so that they formed clear lakes; more often sodden sponges of decayed vegetable matter, oozy, treacherous and were the unstable. The finger-line- s circular ridges marking the subsidence of the mud. The thumb was Big Muskeg, which the two men who stood on the top of the humpbacked ridge could see extended beneath them. Big Muskeg, at this point less than half a mile across, was everywhere of unsounded depth. It curved and wound, a river of ooze, now broadening into chains of lakes, now narrowing into gullies; here and there crossed by trails, but never stable, nowhere offering firm foundation for the permanent way of the Missatlbi railroad. The Missatlbi was a branch line, feeding the new road that was pushing northward toward the ports-o-bon Hudson bay. It linked with it at Clayton, whence it was being extended eastward Into a virgin wilderness. Even in the days when half a dozen companies were pegging out ways for lines that were to divert the wheat north, Joe Bostock's line had been the joke of legislatures and financiers. Those other lines that were being built into Clayton passed through the wheat-landJoe's line ran east out of . Clayton Into a wilderness. Joe Bostock iad secured his capital, but he had no -- ' competitors. i"wi- -'with its small And slowly Missatlbi, shareholders and limited means, had gone ahead. The first location parties had cleared a road to Big Muskeg. The rails had been laid half- . way. But that was ail, save for the partly constructed shacks and buildings for the workmen there, and the sheds for the construction material that had not yet been freighted In. Joe, standing with legs straddling the top of the ridge, turned to Wilton Carruthers, the chief engineer of the company, with eyebrows arched and humorous Inquiry on his weather-beate- n old face. There was no need for speech at that moment, because the mind of each man dwelt on the identical problem. The two men had come east by s. e s; dog-sleigh, great blunder percolated through the lobbies of the provincial legislature, filled with bland, jeering, men to whom one day's tramp such as their laborers performed would mean apoplexy. sue, with work halted, and the Missa-tlblprecarious capital diminishing to vanishing point, while the story of the Their faces haunted Wilton. He remembered half avdozen whom he had approached when the Missatlbi scheme was first bruited abroad. There was, in particular, Tom Bowyer, of the New Northern line, his many Interests entrenched behind the bulwarks of political Influence. Joe Bostock had suggested an amalgamation in the belief that Tom Bowyer could wreck the bill In the legislature. But Tom had laughed In Joe's face, and had not even opposed the measure. "Go ahead with your muskrat line, Joe!" he had said. "I Avon't hinder you." The surveyors who made the preliminary reconnolssance had shirked their work and lied. Wilton suspected that most of them had been In Bow-yerpay. Bowyer and Bostock were old rivals. They had reported Big Muskeg to be an Insignificant swamp with a firm underbed about the portage. It could be crossed, of course, In the end, since nature always yielded to man. But the Missatlbi must either swing a huge loop around it, through territory unsurveyed, or set to Itself the task of filling those unsounded depths with thousands of tons of rock. "D n you!" said Wilton, shaking his fist toward the valley. "We'll beat you yet We've made a bad blunder, Joe. Crooked work, without doubt though I can't Imagine why Bowyer"s gang should take the trouble to hurt us unless, of course, they guess " Joe Bostock shook his head. "No, they haven't guessed that, Wilton," he answered. "I'll stake my hat on that There ain't nobody except me and you and Kitty knows. It's jest bad luck, AVilton " Joe could never sense treachery nor bring himself to believe in its possibility; and if that weakness had kept him, in the main, a poor man. it had bound his friends to him witli 's unbreak-able1)ondsr . -- ssw-j "At the best it's gross negligence," surveyors "Those said Wilton. scamped their work. I accepted their reports. I couldn't go out with the transit and aneroid and follow them all up to check their results. But I might have sounded Big Muskeg. I didn't." His voice choked. "Joe.

For the prob-- , iein which had suddenly risen up to confront them clamored for solution before construction could be carried forward, and on its solution depended the future of the Missatlbi.

Why, Kltty'd have my life If I dared suggest such a thing." Wilton frowned involuntarily at the reference to the pretty young wife whom Joe Bostcck had married In Winnipeg the year before. Joe's first marriage had been unhappy; it had been long ago, and Wilton knew there had been a separation,- though Joe was always reticent about that. Kitty was five and thirty years younger than Joe, and she had Intervened into, a fasLfrJeadship of, more than a decade between "Joe and Wilton. a difference, as It alwaya It-nlade Joe had befriended him years before, when he had drifted, penniless. Into Winnipeg. Joe's faith had been his own, and the secret of the Missatlbi theirs. So the miles reeled off behind him, while the wind increased and the snow fell thicker along the way. At last the trees opened, and the bleak shore of Big Muskeg lay before him, a desert of ice and snow, with the bluffs opposite, and beyond them the trees once more. At once the fierce swirl of the gale caught him, whistling like sirens, boring into his face like white-ho- t probes. The ice that fringed his lashes blinded him and pulled then! from the lids when he tried to open his eyes. He reeled on, clutching Joe's sweater, and tore the shirt apart.

According to thelJstandard established by the Democratic party, any man orj woman who receives a majority of the votes cast in a primary, election is a high class citizen, ready to promote the welfare &of the State. The PrimaryElection Law is a Democraticjinstitution. . It was adopted in Kentuckyjby a Demo- cratic Legislature,?because the Democrats of IKentucky demanded it. It is theJThomas Jefferson idea of equal frights to all. which Woodrow Wilsonwrote into the laws ofJNewf Jersey. The Republican Legislature of 1920 undertook to destroy the Democratic Primary systemjby amending the law so that'uthe State Central Committeejgcould call a convention and give the selected few an opportunity to dictate the nominations for State offices. If ptthe Democratic State Central Committee should fall into the trap laid by the Republicans, and call a Convention, it will be very unfortunate for our Party. The women favor the primary election system and the rural voters want an equal opportunity with machine politicians. The tendency throughout the country seems to be in favor of centralization of power, which always leads to autocracy, Since the days of Jefferson and Hamilton, there have been two distinct classes of polit. 5cal students, those who follow the Democratic party believe that all the people are entitled to an equal opportunity in the affairs of the government, while those who follow the Republican party still adhere to the Hamilton idea that a few people are better qualified to dictate the affairs of government than are the masses.

ADAIR COUNTY NEWS But after all the ftult is with the people. They pay too little attention to politics. They are too careless and indifferent about who goes to the Legislature, who sits in the seats of the mighty at the State capital. They are unwillingto get down into the mire of politics, and as a consequence the few not so fastidious run the whole business. The people foot the bill. Harrison county's supervisors will therefore proceed to dig a little deeper and unearth about a million dollars more, if possible, to pour into the hopper. Maybe some day the lesson will be learned but we doubt it. The simple truth is, the people have not yet proved they are capable of self government. They seem to need a strong-arme- d man to tell them what to do and make them do it.

The assessment fell nearly nine hundred thousands below the amount demanded by the State Tax Commission, although the Board of Supervisors was in session for several weeks and did a conscientious work. Now the list must be revised again. The State Tax Commission is is endeavoring to put into effect a one hundred per cent valuation which has never been done anywhere and will not be done here. It cannot be done, The Comt mission itself could not do is'nt done you know." But the effort may lead to an early repeal of the tax law. The argument is that if each man gave to the assessor his property at full value the revenues would be so large that the tax rate would be reduced and The everybody would benefit. falacy of the argument lies in the fact that the more money poured into the State treasury the more money the State spends.
