A Daring Robbery
Last Saturday forenoon Mr Wash
inirtrin Holt an old pensioner lIt Adair
c < iii wht 1 IVK niar thO S > m nrfi
atrcr
t < uiuUia 4 > transact business
tIt
It has been quite economical and in
order to keep his money where trust
doth pot corrupt and thieves break in
and steal It he had It to the amount of
500 locked in the drawer of a little
table which he keptin his family room
taHi
His neighbors knew that he had the
money and hewas frequently advised
to place it In Bank for safekeeping
Failing to take the advice of his
friends his money is gone and its
whereabouts is known only to those
who are in possession of it The fol
lowing are the particulars of the rob
bery While Mr Holt was In Colum
bia three of his grandsons as we un I
derstand by name Wilson called I
at his home and after spending some
time In social chat with Mrs Holt inI
formed her that they had come to take
fordin
dinner In a few minutes the old lady
went to another apartment of the
house to cut meat for the meal When i
she returned the young men were gone i
and also the little table In a few
minutes thereafter Mr Holt returned
and a quickly as possible he was in i
formed of what had occurred He im
mediately retraced his steps to Colum
bia swore out a warrant for the rob
bers which was placed in the hands of I
Sheriff J W Hurt who in company J
with Jailer Mitchell left for the scene 1
of the robbery Before day Sunday
morning they had arrested Achilles
John Ed and Luther Wilson and had <
them safely lodged behind the bars in
Columbia i
lumbiaSome
Sometime during tbeday Sunday the
table was found in the woods near Mr
Holts house but the drawer had been
prized open and the money was goneJ
The Wilson claim they are I noI
cent but to us the picture looks dark
An examining trial will probably be
1
held in a few daysto
Next year 4dair county will be oneI
hundred year5old and it would be in
keeping with progressive methods to r
celebrate its centcnial year We can
not estimate the good that would reJ
suit from such a move but viewing itJ
from various points it seems that the
people of this county should at leastI
make some effort to bring about anan
appropriate celebration of the closing j
of the first century of Adair county
and the beginning of the twentieth
century of the Christian era By an I
united effort a great celebration could J
be held for a small sum of money AI
committee of good workers could ar
range at that time to induce hundrds
of Adair county people who now live f
in the West to return and spendA few 1
days and thus you see we would have a 1
great reunion It would be a pleasure 1
to all and would be a good advertise
ment to this part of the State We
could have one of the greatest mixing
and mingling of old friends ever j
known in Southern Kentucky This 1
knco
could not be done on short notice as it i
would require time to reach the peo
ple who have left this county and to
adjust matters with the great rail
roads Westward We merely suggest
this to the people of the county and
should it seem prapticable to others we
assure Yap that the News will dp its
part from start to nigh Its columns t
are open tq the pitljups of this oo µ nt Ytrot

Perhaps no tWQ equities in the State <
are more closely ideqtjtjed with toe in

Adair Notwithstanding this trlendlyI
relationship we understand that a
minister of the Gospel stated from the
pulpit in JameStown a few days ago i
that the people of Columbia were never
more delighted than when making <
sport of Russell county and her people I
The good feeling that exists between
usColumbla and Jamestown has been a dal
ly expression in this place for years and
years and why a man would attempt to
bring about an estrangement is some 1
thing we cannot understand The cit

The Doomed aJ
r
There is a time we know not whore
A pUco we know not when <
That marks the destiny ofmen
To glory or despair >
There is a line by us unseen 55
That crosses every path
The hidden boundary between
Gods patience and His wrath
I
To pass that limit is to die j
To die as if by stealth
It will not quench the beaming eye
Or pain the glowof health
Oh where Is this mysterious bourne
By which our path Is creased
Beyond which Gothlms hatliiyrJrn
That ho who goes is lost
Seeing some of our young men cross
Ingthat limit we are moved to quote
these lines of the Doomed Man add
ask them to stop and consider that
they too are crossing that mysterious
bourne and beg them in the name of
all that is pure and holy in the name
of a dying Saviour on Mt Calvary who
ddied for fallenTQen like them for tHe
sake of that sweet mother whose heart
bleeds for tnem as they crush the very
lifeblood from that heart whose love
s only surpassed by the Infinite and
above all for your own sake to stop for
one moment and consider your condi
tion What do you look forward to in
the future What prospect lies before
you Cant you say no and stick to
it till death You need no illustra
tions of the evils of whisky only re
member what you have seen with your
own eyes and remembering have cour
age to say nOj looking to Him who
Is able to make vuu stand
My dear young men with the Apostle
Paul I beg quit you like men But
that limit has not been past and as
that bourne is still in the future there
is a work for each of us to do A
word from a friend may change a whole
character it has done it In the past It
may do it again A word a warning
Let us speak to them personally +
telling them of Jesus willingness to
save even to the uttermost ere our
opportunity is past and we realize on
ly too late what we might have done
Is it asking too much of every Chris
tian man and woman in this town that
they pray that the love of God In all
It s purity and power be poured out up
on them T F W
