W. W. Bradshaw, Known to
Every Body in Adair County
Crosses the Divide.
The subject of tins article finished a
long and usef al carreer last Wednes
day morning at 5 o'clock. His death
was peaceful and it was not a sur
prise to his many friends of this com
munity, as his condition was known to
have been criticahTor more then ten
days. Jle realized that his departure
was rapidly approaching, and talked
freely with his pastor, telling him of
his willingness to bid farewell to
earthly loved ones, knowing that his
preparation had been accepted, and
that when his soul left the body it
would be received in that celestial
city beyond the skies.
The deceased was born at Mont
peljer, this county, June 14, 1837, mak
ing him seventy-live years and five
months and a few days old when the
end came.
. Capt. Bradshaw had beeli reasonably
successful in life, and was ever ready
"to help the needy, and he was a will
ing giver to advance the cause of
-Christ. For a number of years he en
gaged in Sunday-school work, perhaps
organized more schools tlian any
other one man In "Kentucky. White J
thus engaged his 'field was principally
in Eastern Kentucky, going to that
section when there were but few
church buildings' aud very few religi
ous organizations. Since he com
menced to blaze the way .churches and
school houses have been dotted al
over that section of the State. '
He was not only liberal in Church
affairs, but was ever ready to lend his
assistance and give of Ids means to en
terprises that had for their object the
bettering of Columbia and, Adair'
county. " i

There is something peculiarly sad in
the death of a child. How many
thousands have been moved to tears
when reading Dickens' pathetic ac
counto of the death of little Nell.
For the information of friends and
as some little solace to the bereaved
parents, I want to write briefly of a
child whose young life went out when
scarce begun. v
Louise Falkenburg Phelps, oldest
daughter of Loren O. andEflie Phelps,
was born March 11, 1904 and died
October 22, 1912, at the age of eight
years, seven months and eleven days.
The child had been sick for .some
days with tonsilitis, but when her fa
ther was at home from his school on
Sunday, her condition was not so
alarming as to prevent his return to
On Tuesday she was tnuch 'worse.
Pneumonia had developed, and liar
father hurried home in response to a
telephone message, reaching her bed
side only in time to hear her say:
"Father, don't cry, I will soon be
well.'' A few minutes later she wlrts
pered, "Mother, I can't- talk to you
any more," and her young life went
Louise was a bright," sweet child,
and a general favorite. Atthe home
that afternoon and at the funeral ser
vice next day strong men, unused to
tears, wept for the loss of their little
friend. The services were conducted
by Brother Tarter, of the Methodist;
In school Louise was well along in
J;he4ourtii grade. She wassail excep
tional good reader. Watching her fa
ther in his studies of English Liter
ature, she was able to name many of
the leading authors and the time in
which they lived and wrote.
Such a loss seems irreparable. It
may have been best, but it is hard for
anysortof philosophy or any kind of
faith to reconcile those whose whose
home seems so dilferent now. Some-
perhaps, we'll understand..
What Advertising Cost.
For the beuefitof those who some
time complain that advertising cost
too much, we give for the benelit of
our patrons the foil wing figures.
, A single page in a single issue of
yearly advertisement of one column in
the Chicago Tjibune costs 520,000: in
the New York Tribune $29,000 for the
lowest rates and $85,900 for the highest
rates; in the Xew York Herald the
cost for the lowest rates is $38,203 and
$350,000 for tligiiighest priced column.
Yet one can see that these papers are
always full of advertising matter, even
at these enormous prices. Won't tlus
make the man feel funny who pays
$10 a year for advertising and struts
about town posing as liberal adver

The HooR Worm.
To the Editor of the Adair County:
News: Prof. Dudley, who is teaching
the MtZioh school in the district near
Crocus, lias set a example that all
the other teachers in the county would
do well to follow. When 1 would call
on his school to talk sanitation to the
children he would always seem deeply
interested in all the snbjects talked
about. The State Board of Health
has sent out,Bulletins on the subject
of the diseases which are becoming in
Kentucky, so common, and Prof. Dud
ley has been studying these bulletins
and especially the one on the hook
worm disease, until he has undertaken
to rid his school of these pests. He
called the patrons and parents of the
school together, audlaid the case be
fore them, tellingthem about the
dangers from the hookworm disease.
He got them interested in the matter,
and at once proposed to second any ef
fort that he might make to help the
sanitary condition of the children.
The Prof, gathered 20 or 30 specimens
rom that many suspected children and
sent them to the state bacteriologist,
and had them analyzed, and six of
them were found to be effected with
hookworm, and several others were
found to be effected with other kinds
of worms, one a tape worm, !Now
these children can all be restored to
health, and instead of being dull child
ren as they have been accused of be
ing, they will be as bright as any in
school. Rowttiisis a noble workoC
Prof, Dudley," and one that ought to
be followed by other teachers iu the
county, and all the counties round
about. I hope it will be done.

Eloped to Tennessee.
A telephone message Sunday night
from Mr. W. R. Lyon, Campbellsville,
to Mr. R. F. Paull, this place, stated
.that it was generally believed at the
former town where Miss Ruth Paull,
daughter of Mrs. Lena PauH,thiscity,
was visiting, that the young lady and
Mr. Sam Burdette, a young trader of
Marion county, who frequently visits
Columbia, had eloped to Tennessee, as
they had left Campbellsville in a bug
gy together and the information Mr.
Lyon received after their departure,
warranted him in the opinion that the
couple had left for the purpose of get
ting married.
Doubtless, that by the time this pa
per reaches our readers they will hava
been to gretna green and returned and
received forgiveness.
- The bride is quite young in her
sixteenth year, and was in school at
this place. She is the oldest daughter
of Mrs, Lena Paull, and was quite
popular with all her Columbia asso
ciates. Her marriage was a great sur
prise, but her numerous friends trust
that the event will bring to her much
happiness, and that her early marriage
will prove a blessing to all concerned.
The groom is well-known about Co
lumbia where he has been a success
ful mule buyer for several years, and
where he has made many warm, per
sonal friends.
Shot Wife to Death.
J. L. D. Gebert, of the Middleburg
secton of Casey county, shot and kill
ed his wife at their home Wednesday
night and has 'been arrested and
placed in jail.' He claims that it was
an accident but eye, witnesses to the
tragedy declare that he shot her deli
berately after she had entered ia a
quarrel he was having with some men
who were present. It is said Mrs.
Gebert sought to prevent her hus
band from having trouble with the
men. He was drinking and bacame
irritated and turned and shot her
down. Death was instantaneous.
She was just 24 years of age. Before
her marriage she was Miss Evans.
Basket Ball Game.
The Monticello Basket Ball Team,
accompanied by a number of
"rooters," reached here last Thursday
forenoon. The team landed in line
shape for a match game against
Lindsey-Wilson boys, and at
o'clock the bell was tapped and
contest opened.
It was interesting throughout, but
it was soon discovered that the -visit-iiTg
team was too heavy for the local,
and when the game ended the score
stood 13 to 0 in favor of the Monti
cello boys. There was some hard
playing, but good humor prevailed.
A large crowd witnessed the contest,
and when the visiting team left Sat
urday morning for Russell Springs to
engage in another contest, the local
boys gave them the glad hand, promis
ing to meet them in Monticello at an
Birthday Dinner.

Sunday. The most consplclous names
were those of W. S. Taylor aud wife,
Indianapolis, Ind. It was soon learn

who was ousted in a contest instituted

A Good Yield.
Mr. C S. Harris is not a member of
the boys corn club, he makes no
claims of being a scientific farmer or
of bringing to light new theories in
agriculture, bnt firmly believes that
doers, rather than theories, will solve
the problem of larger yield, better
kept farmsand more profitable return.
A good portion of his time was spent
on the farm last summer and he re
ports that every acre he cultivated in
corn made more than 50 bushels, while
his 8 acre field, in front of his dwell
ing, weighed out 91 bushels per acre.
Heavy rains damaged this field, very
much in early spihig,which, as "he
thinks, prevented him from making
20 barrels per acre, the quantity he
had planned to produce.
