COLUMBIA, A0AIR COUNTY, KENTUCKY, WEDNKDAY OCT. 30, f912.
'The News, next week, will nob be
issued until Wednesday. The election
will be Tuesday and by holding over
until Wednesday we will beable to
let our readers know the result of the
The Road We Must Have.
The proposed automobile pike-way
from Columbia, Ky., to Jamestown,
Ky.. will have less grades and will
cost less money than auy road of its
length that may be built in the State
and I doubt if there is another pros
pective road in the State that would
promise more to more people than
this proposed road.
First, it will be a paying investment
to the stock-holders from the start.
Second, it will revolutionize the en
tire commercial phase of Southern
Ky. This proposed road is the key to
a large number of counties thathiave
no railroad advantages, but now the
automobile has come to the relief of
such as have nc rail road. A good
pike with automobile service would be
a greater blessing to more people tliau
a railroad. With the rapid transit of
aulos the traveling public can make
schedule timj, and will leave the
heavy hauling for men who have
teams, and tliey can do this hauling
and save money without paying their
hard earned money "to the mud tax.' s
This mud tax demands greater tribute
from the tax-payers of this country
than all other taxes combined and
many times more. When this road is
completed fromColumbia to James
town., tliis will be the incentive for
other roads. It will be but a short
time until the Dunuville pike be
extended to intercept at Russell
Springs, and others extending from
Columbia to other points; but the one
main essential road, is the twenty
one miles that will connect us with
Campbellsville and Greasy Creek boat
landing on Cumberland River.
Any one who will make this propos
ed road a study can see at a glance
that such a road will effect three of
the largest commercial cities in our
country, aud will turn through this
section of country a stream of com
merce that will materially effect every
body in the entire country. It will
set the wheels to rolling: it will en
hance the value of real estate. It
will bring new life and vigor into the
countrj'. It will bring good citizen
ship, better schools, better churches,
and will help us in many ways that
we have not space to mention. I
want to say here that I have found
this the best tomato growing section
in the State. , Jn a grocery store in
Columbia. the"re were eleven toma
toes, grown this section, weighing
twelve pounds. I saw sorghum in
.Jamestown a home product, that
would bring from "5cts to SI per gal
lon in the market. Big Sandiydfbr no
other counjjy I have seen, cqii pro
duce such quality ofsyrup.
E believe that this land between Co
lumbia and Jamestown can be made to
yield one hundred ..dollars per acre to
the man who-will make it yield up its
sweetness to him.
Men lets have this road. We .pro
pose to lu:ld this road by subscrip
tion, and the man who will may work
out his stock according "to specifica
tions of directors after the company
is organized. Let me hear from any
Yours for the road,
.T. P. Bicknell,
Mr. W. B. Ciellan, of Lebanon, was
calling on our merchants oue day last
week, and while in town called the
attention of the News man to the im
portance of improving the Confeder
ate groves and 'monument on Green
River hill between this place and
Campbellsille. Ilealso stated that
the movement was on to acquire the
ground, re-erect the monument ou
concrete foundation, ' build a cement
fence around theT)remises and enrich
the ground for blue grass, and when
done, keep it in good condition. This
will require money and the people of
Adair and Taylor counties ought to
respond liberally to this work. So
one after seeing the monument, can
doubt the importance of this step, and
no one who cherishes good will and
love for those who died in that unfort
unate struggle can justify further ne
glect Their graves shorild be- kept
the marble shaft white aud the
ravages of time.
The first day of the Russell circuit
court, A Hunn, of this place, bought
' five mules ranging in price from $135
to $900 Brack Massie was also in at
tendance and he bought three at an
average of $150 per head.

In an article on "The Training of a
Child" in the November Woman's
Home Companion the author, Mary
Louise Graham, writes, in part:
"I know that forgetfulness of self
can be attained, even when it has been
conspicuously denied by nature. This
is a very intimate little story that I
am about to tell, but 1 feel that it has
in it a lesson of real value.
'When I was myself a young girl, I
was very conceited, and for no great
er cause than that I had a good intel
lect and could learn easily what the
other girls at school found hard. The
realization of my own conceit came to
me through other people's criticism
of me. For some time I puzzled over
what to do. It is so long ago that I
do not remember whether the solution
came all in a moment, or whether I
gradually lived into the understand
ing of the truth, that I might know
that 1 was clever, but that it would
never harm me so long as I placed no
emphasis on the fact. Every time I
found mjself dwelling with satisfac
tion on some display of my own intel
lect. 1 tried to shut out the thought.
It was very hard at first: I did so
love my complacent, conceited
thoughts, and for a time 1 would oc
casionally indulge- myseif in them.
Still, in time the device actually did
work, and it set in motion other sub
conscious processes. Whenever I
came back to thoughts of myself, I
found a new humility, which I learn
ed to feel more precious than my- old
'-After a time conceited thoughts
ceased to give me any pleasure; in
stead, they brought a curious setiSe- of
shape, as if some one had praiseHTne
for a noble act that I had not done.
I had come to see myself in a true pro
portion, and to realize the absolute
unimportance of my poor little mind.
This is nob words: It is the literal

A Geod Woman Dies In the Zionj
Mrs. Annie E. Cabbell, one of the
oldest and noblest women in the Zion
community near Joppa, died October
the 14th, 1912. She was a daughter of
Robert and Clemmie Montgomery, and
was born December 28, 1832.
She was married to William F. Cab
bell, .Ian., 13, 1851. To this union
were born six sous and two daughters,
all of whom are living and attended
the1 funeral services.
It was a very unusual occurrence for
the six sous to be the paR-bearers of
the mother's remains. But it was a
last privilege to express their appre
ciation of a mother's love and services
Three of the brothers, James, Ed
and Frank, live in the west. Three
of them, Lucien, Robert and Ruel
live in this county Adair.
These are noble sons, which the
mother has left as a heritage to the
county and church and neighborhoods
in which they dwell.
Mrs. John Young, one of the daught
ers,"lives near the old home. Miss
Antha lives in the home with her
brothers, Ruel anclTiobert.
Mrs. Cabbell was a member of the
Christian Church, having made the
good confession in girlhood. She lived
a faithful Christian life to the end.'
II er children are all, but one, Christ
ians. Her counsel and early teaching
will never be forgotten by her child
ren, and has already inllueuced them
to live nobly.
One sister, Mrs. Will Montgomery,
remains to mourn the loss of this good
May the Lord's blessing rest upon
children, grand children and relatives
who are bereft by the going forth of
j tin's, aged Christian, and may they,

go into the great eternity.
F. J. larger and Z. T. Williams
took part in the funeral services.

The Last of the Three.
The spriugs robe.s of nature were
When warbling songsters are gay,
Though weary, despondent, and lone
ly, Hetarried in grief by the way.
To visit the old country graveyard,
One that he'd known long ago,
Where many a mourner had lingered
To witness their loved oues laid low.
The old church near by appeared
As ff a sad mourner long fears,
With those who lamented their lost
To give silent grief for their tears,
That stand as a watchman, on duty,
A sentinel knowing no dread,
The slumbering camp of the dead.
He mused upon fond recollections
Written on life's brightest page,
of those he had known in his boyhood,
And others familiar in age,
Considering life's transient season
With all of its fashion and show;
As waters that tlow to the ocean,
Our lives to eternity go
In reverie sad, but enchanting,
Fpnd accents again he could hear,
Dear,Ju ages of the departed,
Imagined, they still lingered" near,
Invisible to mortal vision,
As ministering spirits around
Wllere all that was mortal now sleep-
Bedeath this hallowed ground.
ISeartwo marble head stones he
And silently dreamed of the past,
Of kind and affectionate parents,
For he was the first and the last.
While visions of loved ones and
By memory still see,
Though bowed now by age and' atllic
The last of the once happy three.
