Columbia High School Takes Two
The Graded School got. revenge from
Glensfork Saturday, April 13, for
the defeat last year. At the former's
grounds the country boys were out
classed to the tune of 16 to 8. Possibly
they were so jubilant over their previ
ous victory that they had failed to
practice since. But it occurs to the
Graders that they couldn't hit Hancock

To the Citizens of the Town of Columbia:
The time has come for -every citizen
to see after his premises. The health
of the people is the greatest blessing
to every community. The health of
the people is promflted by looking after
the little things. A clean town is al
ways a healthy town. In a perfectly
clean town, there are no flies or mos
quitoes. If there are no flies or mos
quitoes, there is no sickness of the
kind spread by these pests. Malarial
troubles are spread altogether by mos
quitoes. Typhoid fever and consump
tion are spread largely by the house fly.
If the people will begin in time, begin
now, the house fly can be prevented
Screening the houses is the beginning
of safety. Keep the manure from ac
cumlating in the stables. If it is haul
ed out and scatterd over the ground ev
ery week, there is no danger. Do this.
or sprinkle a little coal oil over the heaps
every day. In this way you will stop
the flies from breeding, and save your
selves and your horses from a great
deal of unnecessary annoyance. Keep
the flies out of your privies, either by
screening the vaults, or by covering the
contents with lime, or ashes or fresh
earth every day.
These things are a little troublesome,
but it pays in the long run. Then, be
sure and keep your rain barrels covered
so that mosquitoes cannot lay their eggs
n water The eSs mosquitoes when
iiuiv;ueu u.lk wiggieiaus, aim wiggie-
tails when developed are mosquitoes.
You should not only keep your rain bar
rels covered, but have no tin cans or
other vessels lying around catchir-g
water, and giving the mosquitoes a
place for laying their eggs. The old
fashioned "shak in ager" has been
nearly entirely eliminated.

conference with the Board of health,
and the Board of town trustees, Sat
urday the 27, day of April has been set
apart as a general cleaning up day,
when every citizen is expected and di
rected, to clean his premises. Let the
filth be put into barrels or boxes, and
placed on the streets where the wagons
which will be furnished by the town can
get them and haul them away. Every
old lumber pile in a state of decay must
be removed. -No paper hereafter must
be thrown into the streets or on the

A New Railway Project.
Tennessee capitalists, mainly
dents of Gallatin and neighboring towns,
have secured a charter for an electric
railway from Gallatin to Stanford or
Somerset, Ky. -
t The projectors are said to have been
at work on the enterprise for several
months and to have as many as four
routes under consideration for the road,
which is designated in its charter as the
Cumberland Valley & Interstate Rail
way. In the final selection they will be
guided largely by the amount of popu
lar interest that is manifested in the
The road is projected through a sec
tion of Kentucky that is greatly in
need of better transportation facilities.
In the area between Gallatin and Stan
ford there is a block of eight Kentucky
counties, all of which are without rail
roads. These are Monroe, Metcalfe,
Cumberland, Wayne, Clinton, Adair,
Russell and Casey. Any road built
from Gallatin to Somerset or Stanford
would be likely to penetrate at least
two, and'probably more, of these coun
ties. They embrace a country that is
rich in diversified resources and that
presents an inviting field for the invest
ment of capital. In no other section of
the State is there so large a territory
inconveniently situated with respect to
railroad facilities. There have been
numerous efforts heretofore to .induce
the building of railroads into this re
gion, but none of the ambitious projects
set on foot has made material progress.
It is scarcely passible tha"t the devel
opment of this inviting area can be de
layed many years longer. The move
ment in Tennessee is inspired by men
who know, the possibilities of the coun
try through which it is proposed to
build the road andit is to be hoped their
enterprise will be more fortunate than
those which have gone before. Courier-Journal.
There may be something in this pro
ject, hence it would not be out of place

Faiied to Contract.
The Fiscal Court met last Thursday
to receive bids for building the bridge
across Russell's creek at the Birk ford.
Mr. Spain was here, representing the
Champion Bridge Company, and he sub
mitted a bid of $2,200. Auother gen
tleman, who represented some other
company was here, but he did not sub
mit a proprosition. A proposition, by
letter, was received from anothf r com
pany, the bid being less than two
thousand. The Court retired and con
sulted a few minutes, af terwbich a mo
tion prevailed rejecting all bids for the
present. We take it that the County
Judge and County Attorney will make
thorough investigation, and at an early
day,the contract will be let.

The citizens residing on
beyond the bridge which span3 Russell's

not be discontinued so long as they
have not fared like the citizens living
on the three other main thoroughfares
of the town. On Jamestown street,
Greensburg street and Burksville
street, concrete sidewalks have been
built to the town limits, but on Carap

been so fortunate. After a long time,
