Basket Ball Games.
Last Wednesday the Monticello
Basket ball team, reached -Columbia
and at night It engaged the High
jjichool team in the latter's gym. A
'large audience was in attendance and
a close game was expected.. Howev
er, the home team proved too strong
for Monticello and the contest closed
the High School team having 31 scores
to its credit and the visiting team 25.
This was the first time that Monticello
had been beaten by the Columbia
team for seven years.
Monticello remained over and on
Thanksgiving night this team went
up against Jamestown. It did not
prove to be as interesting as the first
game, and when it closed Jamestown
had recorded 36 scores and Monticello
These two games were evidently dis
appointing to the visiting aggregation
as Monticello has the reputation of
having one of the fastest and most
successful teams of this part of Ken
Ic was a very enjoyable'meetlng all
round; and notwithstanding the Mont
icello boys were defeated, they were
given a good time by the young people
; of Columbia, and a warm handshake
by the Jamestown boys

Russell & Co.
Trade at Home.
The dance at the Paramount Thea
ter, last Wednesday night was very
well attended, there Deing couples
here from Jamestown, Russell Springs,
Liberty, Monticello, Campbellsville
and Louisville. It did not start until
after the ball game which ended about
9 o'clock. Crow's Orchestra, of Bards
town, furnished the music It wound
up about 3 o'clock Thursday morning.
We are told that the order was very
good, and that those who participat
ed edjoyed the occasion.

The merchants of this town must
have the support of the buying public,
in order to keep the town going ahead;
so thenxif home, town stores can supply
your needs, and Investigation will
prove that they can, it is your duty to
give preference to your own home
town, The pride that every resident
has in his or her home city should be
the strongest reason for Trading at
Home and encouraging local enter
prise in every possible way.
Out of town stores and mall order
houses do not pay a dollar of taxes in
our town. Theyand their employees
do not support our churches, they do
not deposit in our banks, nor do they
contribute in any way to the support
of our local institutious, as Columbia
How long could our town continue
to progress or attract new residents
if it had an inefficient, backward, de
serted business section. If the people
withdraw their support from.our busi
ness establishments, it would not take
long for the town to deteriorate into
a country village.
They are receiving liberal support
from the residents of Columbia and
vicinity, but there are a number who,
from thoughtless and habit, presist in
going out of town or ordering from
mail order houses, those things they
could buy just as satisfactorily and as
economially right here in town. We
do not ask anyone to buy anything
that they can get elsewhere to better
advantage, but thoy do ask you to
let them serve you, feeling confident
that no other store in another city
can give better qualities, wider as
sortment or fairer prices.
