in a graveyard has been ordered by the Judge of the Christian county court The sale is to satisfy a judgment of the court for S852S In favor of Wells Broi against D M Boyd The contract ora who put up the stone in the Boyd graveyard retained a lien on the stone for the unpaid purchase money when the contract was made The stone Is of granite four feet tall and thirtyeight Inches thick The sale of secondhand tombstones is about as unfrequent as that of second hand cefltos or cisterns Surely we are living In a great age What the Sprague Earns Some rivermen were discussing recently how long It would take the Sprague said to be the most power ful towboat on inland water at pros ent often referred to as the 250 000 steel beauty of the Monongahc la River Consolidated Coal and Coke company to pay for itself The great earning power of the boat is thus figured out says the Pittsburg Pest The Sprague took a tow of 60 coalboats the largest tow ever hitched to one towboat and four coalboats larger than the Sprague has ever handled before In each of these coalboat are over 25000 bushels of coal Coal operators figure on 2 cents a bushels as the tariff for towing coal front Louisville to New Orleans The Sprague will therefore earn at least 500 for tow ing each coalboat or 30000 for towing the entire tow to New Orleans and as the coalboat hold over 25 000 bushels each the earning power of the boat might reach 33000 or even 26000 for the down trip On the return trip the Sprague will bring back 60 emptier and coal operators figure 300 each for thee I towing of each empty from New 1 Orleans to Louisville Thus the 1 I Sprague would earili 000 on her return trip or from 48000 to 53 000 for a single round trip from Louisville tc New Orleans each trip men employed food tic Iis calculated to cost about 11000 according to length of trip which may rwplre anywhere CrM thirty to sixty days The tow boat would at this rate earn about 30000 for her Owners She makes about four trips each year and her earning capacity Iis therefore calcu laced at 130000 a year at which rate the would pay for herself In two and a quarter years The Sprague met many mlsfor tupoa costly to her owners when shewas Hut built but In the past two years she has been running fine ly and has already revolutionized UK towing of coal from Louisville to New Orleans A few years ago twentyfive or thirty coalboats were boatsIwere put on and finally came the Sprague whose next attempt at achievement comes in a few days when the towboat will pull out of Louisville with sixty coalboats oral much as

are not greatly agitating the question of making better roads and in nearly every instance they are taking active slope to do MOle thing Now it it time Fulton county is doing something We have suffered long enough as a result of the impassable reads They arc a menaoc to business to the property value and to the general condition o the county of Fulton It is a well know fact that this county eajoys the envious reputation of being the I wealthiest county ie the state for its size and this above all things is a treason for having good roads to compare with the financial condition of the county The county is entire ly free from debt dots not owe a cent and in strictly first clue condition in every respect There is not a county in the state that con stir pass it in the possession of tnterpds ing business men not a county in t the state size considered that can show more wealth and these condi tions being true there is no reason in the world why we sboeM not have as good if not bettor roads than any county in the state We can do jWboj as well as himself at heart who win object to a road tax one that while not exorbitant will be ample to put the roads of the county in prime condition and maintain them If there is a man to be found who will object to the tax under the ousting conditions you may brand him on the spot as not possessing any public spirit and is a selfish miser Now the last session of the state legislature passed a road law but though we are fortunate in having a valuation of over three millions of dollars the valuation being In ex cess thereof thereby deprives us of the benefits of the law But M the other hand the law provides that m counties with a valuation of over three million dollars the fiscal court possesses full power to levy a tax sufficient to maintain a system of good roads IJHowmaintain a system of roads in PUltonh county We will give some figures and let you see for yourself The taxable value of the county amounts to something like 4000000 Take 3000000 4S a low estimate and at ten cents the tax would amont to 5000 This tax of ten cents would scarcely be felt by any one a man paying taxes on 5000 would only pay 5 tax a year The nical court has the power to sea i this taxwill we ask the court to i o or will we sit around with ourIr t1OOI in our pockets and cuss the roads and grumble about trade being dull just because the farmer cannot get to town 10 trade See how much good could be done by this 3000 a year You arc interested I we are interested and the other fellow is interested so lets get together and

body tlow to the hypocritical 1 Freeensions of his arch antagonist raker Merely to core a point in on utterly unncoeeMry controversy he president seems te have waived considerations of good to the colored 1 race and to the service For no one believes this man would have been appointed to this place if he had not been a negro and if Foraker hadnt laid himself open to the blow It jcaa bad enough to see the president and senator guests at a recent banquet engaging in an oratorical hand 1 in tohand struggle but this appoint ment is worse There are some in things a president of the United States

before q you get to work at your crops- I am sorry that there are some misunderstandings about these things but I suppose the way to croar up misunderstandings Is to discuss the matter fully clearly but cooly and good humoredly Last winter about twelve or fifteen C citizens wanted telephones with a central in Hickman We net four times and discussed the matter and all of us understood that the Cum bcrland Telephone Company had a franchise In Hickman and that we could not put a switchboard inside the city limits Some live of our neighbors on the east wanted tele phones with a central board at Cayce Seventeen of us united and turned the Mud Creek Telephone company as a branch of the Cayce Telephone company Our members are J J Seay A H Leet J W Purcell S L Roys ter Louis Atwell Elijah Bradley Israel Clark Mrs E A Thomas heirs James H Saunders John D Mayas Bruce Henry Samuel Ltn den John Jones John Roper J M Roper W N Brasfield and Wm ClarkJ one familiar with the geog raphy of the country can see that we are badly scattered and that our lines could have been put up for much less money if we lived closer togetherHowever this fairly represents the A S of E If all even onehalf of the farmers were organized and would stand together we would now jc getting 1 for wheat and profitable prices for all of our products But we bound ourselves to hold to r ether elected J J Seay Louis At well and John D Mays executive committee and James H Saunders secretary and treasurer We put up good large posts along the state road from the west corner of Tylers race track field to Cayce and then run side lines to each mem 11 i bers door Our poles wires insu lators labor and all expenses cost i us 1950 each But you can see that only three members lived on the elate road and that for over three miles from the Thomas farm to Cayce we had to put upour double line all the way with no one to help help us except some poles that Dick A Scearcc and Mr Stone gave Since then we have been told that the Cumberland company has no fran chise ia Hickman and that we could Have put no switch board in Hick saUsjfiecl 1i i Cayce Besides this we have blank lines from Cayce to both Moscow and Jordan and can talk to hundreds of people at those points Then Jordan is connected with Union City while Moscow is con nected with Alexander Water Valley l and I do not know how many other places so we now talk over tour counties wherever we have rural phones Still we would like to talk to our neighbors near Hkk man and our friends in Hickman The members of our Cayce company met and appointed Charles Hoonon Dr Lon Naylor James J Seay Jas H Saunders and Louis Atwell to confer with Hickman and see If Hlekman wanted our phones If Hlokman people wilt profit by our experience they can put up their lines at about onehalf our cost for they live much doter together than we do TheA if they wilt put a switch board in Hiokraan and want connection with Cayce we will put up a blank line from Cayce to the corner of Tylers race track field Just two and onehalf miles from the oily limits and this will give Hick man connection with Moscow Jordan Alexander and all the points that we connect with About the same time some of our friends and neighbors south of Hickman put in Cumber land phones and for some purpose I do not know what asked a contri bution from the merchants of Hick man I am told that some merchants contributed thinking that they were getting connection with us This is all a mistake We have no connetlon with the Cumberland and expect none We are asking no contribution begging for nothing but work ing on the true equity plan to give justice and ask justice We can talk to almost everybody in the county except Hickman and we shall be glad to talk to our friends there if they will cooperate with us If the people in and near Hlokman will calla meeting we shall be glad to meet with them in getting connection with us and all our rural lines but like the old lark we believe that

once I A Statesman is one who wants to do something his country and a politician is Ilone who wants his country to do something for him ItThe number- of politicians is increasing every year while the number of statesmen iit decreasing The successful poll ticans are those who can fool the most people most of the time Against this class we are unalterably opposed and while we have few statesmen under the Bryan defini tion to vote for we shall alwaps be found for those who nearest approach that standard We fully believe iti alt of our office holding class were selected that the era of graft and corruption would immediately dis appearIf railroad company wants an engineer it selects a man who has the qualties of an enginer he must have nerve good habits and experi ence in his business If a bank wants to select a cashier it would not think of going on a race track and picking him out from the most suc cessful jockeys but under our mod ern political methods we select many olcers or rather we allow them to select themselves with about as little regard for fitness It is Just as absurd fer the people to let the politloans select themselves for office hy asking for it and by using the present methods in secure ing it as for the clerks to select their employer or the hired hand to select his farmer who must give him a job The people ought to select their own public servants and in every instance they should be selected from men who want to do something for their country and not trots the professional politloans who have no higher ambition than to feed at the public trough We will never let rid of greed graftcorruption and hand bad and unwholesome laws until the people take it into their beads that they are going to run things and tell the professional poll want that they must go way bcLc- kaadi sit We believe that the majority of the people want honest and clean government and the onlyway they can have it is to look more carefully to the character aud Intel- lIgence of the men they select to serve them SundaySchool Institute The fifth annual session of the Pastors SundaySchool Institute and Seminary will be held In Louisville 18 192021 and 22 of this month at the

small bud pink with life and hope and fragrant with sympathy would have eased the pain of some aching heart for even a little while had they been bestowed while the loved one was witk us There are too

look at motives and not at results is the right thing to do How often the best laid plans lead to failure A word of appreciation has led many a discouraged heart to pick up the roken hearts and weave them into anew web after they had lain among tattered ideals for months or years Kind words bring memories that echo through the years long after the ips that uttered them have crumbled- o dust Children carry the mem ry of words of appreciation with hem thru childhood and often recall hem in old age when enveloped in he shadows of life They are like the perfume of the violet that lifts Is

commencing Laugh and the world laughs with youWeepFor the sad old earth must borro its mirth But has trouble enough of its own Sing and the hills will answer Sigh and it is lost in the air joyfulloundBut One of the first and hardest les sons which the novice has to lea upon entering the great busy world of toil and tumult is that the rushing struggling striving public has no itnerest in the grief of any indivi dual It is too fully occupied wit its own advancement to spend a thought or a care on what does not concern or effect its welfare When we come to investigate w will find that trouble universal and and is more equally meted out than we suppose It comes to us all iin one form or another sometimes iin disguise but it is the same ugly spectre when the mask is thrown aside Every heart has its own burden which wealth cannot enlight en nor honor alleviate It may bin the hidden depths unseen by hue man eyes but it is there neverthe less and will be until the spirit throws off this mortal evil an leaves it behind with its earthly tenement The only diffecce is that has the moral courage to meet or overcome or else submit bravely to the inevitable while the other make- no effort to lift itself from the stream into which the tide of circum stances has placed it but wastes the strength which if properly exerted would put it on its feet in vain re greta and useless repining Whatever your trials and disc p pointments keep them to yourself they only worry your friends and vex those who have no claim upon your confidences Keep a bright face a cheerful word and a hopeful heart Carry in your bearing the dignity ot self esteem and let the air of prosperity fit you like a garment Extend to the world a cordial handI and remember that life Is for theI most part

Discovery ef Kentucky Great Cave In 1809 nearly a century ago occurred the discovery of the Mam mouth Cave of Kentucky Its dis closure probaly resulted from the quest for petre dirt as the soil found in limestone caverns contain ing lime nitrate was called Legend gives other versions of the historical discovery of the worlds greatest cavern but fact is more potent than folklore and to the search for caves with suitable dirt for saltpetre manufacture probably was due the discovery of this great wonderThe feverish anxiety to find petre dirt was the direct result of the em bargo bill passed by Congress in 1807 That bill forbade American vessels to leave American ports for Europe and foreign vessels cduTd not land cargoes here This country was getting on toe wards the war of 1812 and needed gunpowder To make gunpowder saltpetre must be had It had been coming from Italy and Spain but the embargo act stopped that There was no American supply of the sub stanceA chemist one Dr Samuel Brown had at Lexington Ky shown how by crude but efficient processes saltpetre or potassium ni trate could be obtained from caue earth Wood ashes when lixiviat- ed and boiled with the leached pro duct of the fine silt of limestone caverns would furnish the precious product on which depended ana lions life And so the quest for caves was begun and it was assidu ously continued When Mammoth Cave was found every part of the great cavern was searched for cave earth From pit dome byways from crystal bedeek heavywloads of petre dirt to the leaching vats Many thousands of tons of soil were thus treated and the rude chemistry of the day produced some thing like 100000 pounds of salt petre within two years Heaps of leached soil scores of heightrngreet the visitors eye for the first two miles of the great avenue which the visitor enters But these do not tell all the story Many thousands behremoved and then replied in order that the real bottom of the cavern might be reached And nearly all
