Highly Enjoyable
The people of Columbia were delight
fully entertained at the courthouse
last Thursday evening It was the
holiday entertainment given by the
smaller pupils of the Graded school
children from six to fourteen years old
sixty or seventy in number all of whom
were on the spot with their nerve It
is remarkable to see so many children
appear upon the stage single and in
groups apparently without the least
embarrassment The court house was
crowded with friends of the school and
to face such an audience older persons
often tremble fearing a mistake buJ I
upon this occasion every boy and girl
was on to his or her job each part
being played and spoken to perfection
not an error being made during the en
tire evening
It was certainly gratifying to thei
many parents to see their children act
so perfectly and it was certainly pleas
ing to the teachers who trained them
The Indian play Hiawatha was the
last on the program and it proved a
great hit The following were the

Death of An Old Citizen M
The end came to a long and useful
life last Sunday night about 8 oclock
when Rev Solomon Nichols died at the
home of his soninlaw Mr Geo Garri
son near town The deceased was about
eightysix years old and had been a
local Methodist preacher for more than
a half century He perhaps officiated
during his life at more funerals and
marriages than any other man in all
this country
He was a kind unassuming old gen
tleman had agood word for every per
son he met every body having implicit
confidence in his honesty He was a
man who proved his religion by his
daily walk and his passing brought
sorrow to many hearts
The funeral took place at the res
idence at three oclock Monday after
noon conducted by Rev B M Currie
and the interment was on the farm
Peace to his memory
The birth of our Savior was duly ob
served jn Columbia last Sunday At
the morning services at the Presbyte
rian church the pastor Rev J R
Crawford read a most interesting pa
per one that every Bible student in
Columbia should have heard At night
there were union services in the same
building Eld Z T Williams made a
most entertaining talk and Rev B M
Currie and Judge H C Baker had pa
pers that were of special interest A
large congregation was out No one
can hear stories of the meek and lowly
Savior and keep back feelings of 1
emotion

Bridge at Neatsville A
An effort is now on foot to secure
money by subscription to aid in build
ing i bridge across Green river at M
Neatsville Two petitions are being
circulated in the upper end of the
county and people are subscribing to
the enterprise liberally Mr S H
Newbold of Louisville has sent in a
subscription of fifty dollars and MrC
Wm Hobson manager of the Kentucky
Single Tree and Spoke Company has
subscribed seventyfive dollars Many
others are giving according to their ca I
pacity to pay The building of this
a
bridge would enhance the trade of CoB
B
El

is secured by subscription the Fiscal
Court will do the rest Think of the p D
advantages to be derived from a bridgeT
across Green river at the point men
ment
tioned and subscribe to the fund It
can be built if a united effort is inaugu

of Adair fail Sl

go after public improvements and thisp
project we believe can be carried toar
successful termination if we will all pull
together Give us good roads and p
more bridges and our county will pros r

It is impossible to get the particulars
of a killing which occurred in the White

The statement that reached this office
is about as follows
A son of Mr George Grider and four
or five other boys were in a barn drink
ing There was a pistol in the crowd
I and suddenly it was discharged killing
young Grider no one knowing who fired
it Another report is that Grider was
purposely shot by one of his compan

County Attorney Gordon Montgomery
were notified to come and hold an in
quest and they left Monday morning
The Jury in the case stated in its
verdict that young Grider came to his
death by the accidental discharge of a

pistol in the hands of John Grider The

RecitaL 1
Last Tuesday evening the r usic pu
pils of Miss Ethel Lee Hatcher assist
ed by the expression pupils of Miss
Mac Gavock gave a delightful recital
in the Lindsay Wilson chapel The en
tire seating capacity was taken long
before the beginning of the program
and those who attended felt fully re
paid for each number given was well
rendered and heartily applauded Misses
Hatcher and Milliken sang Till we
meet again the accompaniment
being played by Miss Annie Hodges
The Bird song given by Miss Milli
ken was indeed a treat to all music
lovers Ea hone of the young ladies
did splendidly and easily convinced the
patrons and friends that they had been
carefully trained and that quite a good
deal of work was required in memoriz
ing of the difficult numbers given by
music pupils as well as expression
Thanks are due Misses Hatcher and
t
Mac Gavock and those who took part
for a very enjoyable evening and heres oJ
hoping we will have more like it during
