Some Heart Words to Rev. R. V.

Let me say to you do
duly: "Casting all your
I know your hearts aie sad because
of the going away of your dear little
son and brother, R. V. Bennett, Jr.,
but since he has gone to a better
country and is saved to all eternity
where he shall always Ce well and nev
er have a pain, and not one wave of
trouble shall ever roll across his peace
f ul breast; and his associations are the
very best. He is with God and an
gels and with all who have
died in faith and crossed over to the
Canaan land. His associations are
the best to be found in all the uni
verse, and his opportunities for devel
opment are all that could be desired.
not grieve un-
Him; for He careth for you." Say,
though with a sad heart, "Thy will be
done!" Remember that you can
meet him again and spend a blessed
eternity with him. Out of a heart of
love and sympathy for you I wish to
dedicate the following lines written in
verse to you all, and hope they may,
through divine grace, bring some com
fort to your bleeding hearts.
Yours in Christian sympathy,
J. L. Murrell.
Our precious son and brother dear,
Has gone where he shall have pood
He there shall never know a pain,
And death shall never come again.
No want shall ever reach that shore,
But ail good miogs forevermore;
His mind snail there be clear and
His heart be true and always warm.
Mora like his God forever grow,
As He His grace on him bestows;
Happy, yea happy in His will,
God with Himself his being fill.
And oh, and on, shall wiser grow,
And larger joys to him shall flow;
What bliss is his we cannot tell,
He there with Cod shall ever dwell.
O think of him in such a home,
And strive at once to cease to mur
mur. Rejoice that you can meet him there,
And with the Lord heaven's bliss to
Our dear sweet one we give thee up,
Though still from sorrow's cup we sup;
We'll try to put our grief away,
And hope to meet you some sweet day
And live forever with our Lord,
His holy name with thee to laud,
And while the endless years shall roll,
We'll rest in peace that can't be told.

JUDGE ROLLIN HURT.
He retired last Friday as Chief Justice of the Kentucky Court ot Appeals,
after serving on the bench for eight years. Lawyerof the State who have
read Judge Hurt's written opinions, speak of him as a great lawyer, with but
few equals in this Commonwealth. He is now at home, in this place, and
will doubtless open his law-office soon He is held by the other members of
tha Court in the highest esteem, and he was beseeched to announce for re
election, and could have been elected for the second term if he had said the
word. He is a man of wonderul information, and in addressing an audience
ho is exceedingly impressive.
Christmas Will Soon Be Here. .
This is the season of the year when
all the little boys and little girls are
happy They are fondly looking for
Old Santa Claus, and are wondering
what he will bring them. The little
folks are outspoken in their desires,
and many write letters to Santa, tell
ing him what they mostly desire.
They should not be disappointed for
the reason if they do not get the ar
ticles they are longing for, heartaches
follow, and they will conclude that
they are not in favor with the dis
tributor of Christmas presents. Make
the children happy, and as they romp
and play over their gifts your heart
will overflow with joy. The sorrow
that disappointment brings can hard
ly be described.
Gloves, Hose, Handkerchiefs, sweat
ers, Mufflers, Belts and Felt Slippers
are sure to please. See my stock.
A Great Benefit.
No enterprize established in Colom
bia, in our recollection, has proven to
be a greater benefit to the county as
will the new receiving tobacco house
now in full operation. It will nob
only be of great benefit to the busi
ness of Columbia, but the tobacco
growers of the entire county will re
ceive better returns for their crops
than ever before known. If there is
any class of men who ought to receive
full value for their labor, it is the
farmer who makes and puts the stuff
on the market. There are some grow
ers in the county who have not enter
ed the pool but when the checks begin
to come in they will wish they had

Best In The Mate.
A member and an officer of the To
bacco Association, who does not live in
Adair county, has examined the new
receiving house. He stated thathe
had seen all the houses in Kentucky,
but taking the size into consideration
he stated that the one in Columbia
was the best built in the State. This
is certainly a compliment to the con
tractor, Mr. Elsy Young, and to Mr.
Wood Judd, who was in charge in
erecting the building.

suffering humanity, let them take &
stroll into the suburbs of Columbia,
and see what is needed to make poor
children happy. It is said that there
are families who are in need of the
necessities of life with no money to
buy. They have nothing for their
chlldrerTand no means with which to
make purchases of little articles that
would make them happy. There is
but little in the larder, and perhaps
some of them are hungry. It would
be a Christian spirit to help the un
fortunate, and if you are not willing
