Saccstful , Meeting.
The series of meetings which were
conducted at the Methodist Church
for nearly three weeks by the pastor,
Rev. Sle&maker, assisted by Rev.
Squires, of Louisville, closed Thurs
day night. It was largely attended
throughout the series, and during its
progress something like one hundred
persons made professions. Many
church members were revived, and

much good. The minister, Mr.
Squires, speaks plainly and to the
point, no trouble to understand his
meaning. The song servfce was good
throughout the meeting.

The title of this notice is the name
of a play given last Friday night by
pupils of the High school in Tutt's
Hall. It drew a large crowd ' and it
was a real entertainment. The plot
was well laid, the stage attractively
arranged, and the acting was first
class, and it goes without saying the
audience was delighted. While the
performers were all ameteurs, they
acted like they were use to appearing
before the public. The costumes
were in keeping with the play. Mrs.
O. M. Russell, who is a skilled pianist,
furnished the music. 1-

Well;Known Physician Dead.
Last Friday morning, about nine
o'clock, Dr. Ed Sallee, who had been
almost helpless for a long time, died
at his home, Garlan, four miles from
Columbia. He was about-82 years old
and bad many friends in Adair coun
ty. 'He wasa man who had opinions
and he expressed them. Policy-play-frig
was not engaged in by him. He
was an honorable man, one who
weighed what he had to say and when
he was ready to say, he said it. He
believed in honesty and he practiced
it... He envied the position of no man,
and all good deeds met his approval.
He was not a member of any Church,
but tie was a believeY in the goodness
of his God. Before he was taken sick
he did a great deal of practice without
pay. He leaves one brother, W. S.
Sallee and'one sister.
To Members of the Barley To
bacco Growers Co-Operative
We are forced to discontinue receiv
ing tobacco for a few days on account
of not being able to get sufficient sup
plies for the prizing department. We
hope to secure the necessary equip
ment at once and to. relieve the con
gestion by the early part of next week.
After that we expect to be able to
handle the crop more rapidly:
We must again urge the growers to
brlmr their tobacco on the stick if it
is at all possible, and to have it prop'
erly giaded, no two kinds on the same
stick and each grade kept separate on
the wagon. If this is not done the
expense of handling the crop is going
to bo entirely too high.
Remember that this is a co-opera-live
movement and we must all co
operate if we expect to get the most
out of it.

Death r a Good Citizens.
Last Tuesday morning, about 10
o'clock, Mr. John Simpson, who was
among the best citizens of Breeding,
this county, died at his late residence,
aged about sixty-eiget. He was a vic
tim of a cancer, and was confined to
his room for some months before death
ended his misery. There was no bet
ter oitizen in Adai-county than the
deceased, and he will be greatly miss
ed from the neighborhood where he
was born and reared, and especially
will he be missed by his devoted com
panion who watched him closely dur
ing his long illness. He left no chil
dren, but is survived by several broth
ers, to our knowledge two of them
being Dr G. T. Simpson and Mr. R.
The deceased was a devoted member
of the Methodist Church, and was a
liberal supporter upon all the ordi
nances. The funeral services were held on
Wednesday and they were largely at

Crops have been good, on the whole.

considerably higher. While there has
been a corresponding advance in the
prices of the things the farmer must
buy, the total sum which farmers will
receive for the crops of this year is
greater by a billion and a half dollars
or more than that which they received
lor the crops of last year. This will
certainly mean better times on the
