Manager Reed Brings Home the Bacon. By winning Saturday's game from Lebanon by the score of 11-5, the Co lumbia base ball team won the cham pionship for the first time in the his tory of the Proctor Knot Chautauqua. This is the fourth team that has represented Columbia a t Lebanon, contesting for honors, under the man agement of old students of the game, but not until this year has any satis faction been brought about. Heretofore, Columbia has had just as good material as she ever had at Lebanon, but some how o r other they were never gotten together and made to play consistent ball. Too much praise cannot be given to Edgar Reed, who has not only suc cessfully looked after the financial end of the club, but has also assisted Capt. 'Rosenfield in getting up team work etc. After winning three straight games from Bardstown, Hus tonville and New Hope, Columbia lost to Lebanon by the score of 3-2, but coming back strong the next day she beat Lebanon in a loosely played game. After Lebanon had used up Snyder, their star pitcher, in Fridays game, it was a foregone conclusson as to how the game would end in the following day. It is a general concensus of opin ion of every one who,saw the Colum bia team play that they won the championship on the relative strength of the team, and not through any break of luck. During the four years that Colum bia has played at the Lebanon Chau tauqua every member of the club is extremely appreciative for the treat ment accorded to them by the people of Lebanon. In the game against Hustonville Young pitched beautifully, allowing them only two hits. It was thought that Hustonville would be the team to beat, but they were easily disposed of by the score of 16-1 Thedextday a fine exhibition of pitching was displayed by big Rich Durning who was easily the star. With men on bases he was practically unhitable. In the series Vauhan and Sandidge again featured with their hitting. The following is the score: Prayer Meeting. The prayer meeting of the Baptist ahurch will be held, Wednesday even ing, July ICUi, on the lawn of W. A. Coffey. Z. T.

The liesolutions are signed by Mrs. G. C. Cromer, president, and Sue M. Davis, vice president.

"Securing the promises of candi dates for the Legislature to secure the passage at the next Legislature of a law similar to the Iowa injunction law, putting a perpetual injunction upon property to be used for immoral purposes.

"Petitioning immediate passage by Congress of bills prohibiting inter state traffic in opium, cocaine and other drugs of habit-forming nature, their illegal saleand use.

Last Thursday morning at 4 o'clock, Mr. A. H. Holt, who was a prominent citizen of Jamestown, well-known to every body in Russell county, paid the debt due from all the living. Several months ago he met with a stroke of paralysis, which ultimately terminated in his demise. The de ceased was about sixty years old, and had been a resident of Jamestown since his early manhood. Soon after his marriage he was elected jailer of Russell county, hold ing the position several terms by re election. For the last ten or twelve years he devoted his time to conducting a hotel and running a general store. He was a kind hearted man. ever ready to help the needy, and was pop ular with every body. His'death is a serious loss to James town, as the deceased was enterpris ing, and at all times ready to give of his means to any project leading to the advancement of his town and county. Quoting a gentleman in this town, "as a host, no man could dispense hos pitality more generously and delight fully, making his guests feel perfectly at home. I am truly sorry to learn of his death." The funeral was largely attended, and the floral offerings were many and beautiful. . He is survived by his wife, two sons and one married daughter. May the balm of Gilead comfort them in their great sorrow. Loses a Great Toe. A son, about fourteen years old, of Mr. James W. Vaughan, met with a very serious accident at Glenviile, last Thursday. He slipped his fdther's shot gun from the house, the former being absent from home. While in the open he carelessly placed the muz zle on his right foot, when the gun fired, tearing off his great toe. A physician from this place was called and dressed the wound. He says un less blood poison sets up the boy will get all right, except he will probably limp through life. Notice to Contractors. All parties who expect to bid for the brick work and wood work on the new Baptist Church, this place, must submit their bids not later than July 2(ith, as on tnat day the Committee will meet dt 12 m., and will render a decision.

The candidates drew for places, and the names appear in the paper the same as they will upon the ballot. The drawing was conducted by County Clerk Walker Bryant, under the law, and it was satisfactory to all concern ed. The telephone service between this place and Jamestown is miserably bad and we would be glad if a company could be organized and a substantial line established. It would require the placing of new poles, new wire etc., but we believe such a line would pay. Will not some enterprisingraen take hold of the matter. The service is certainly needed. Mr. C. C. Breeding is now located in Columbia and has charge of one of Mr. Myers' machines. He is an expert operator, and perfectly reliable.

All day singing at Goodin school house next Sunday. As to Efection Officers. The Frankfort News sends out the following timely notice: Election officers must be specially appointed by the County Boards of Election Commissioners for the Au gust primary. In answer to inquiries on this point Attorney General Gar nett to-day stated that the election officers appointed last fall for the No vember election cannot serve for the primary unless re-appointed. Attor ney General Garnett also informed County Attorney G. B. Stamper, of Wolfe county, that in his opinion, whether there are candidates in all three parties for primary nominations or in only one party, the law specific ally directs that the two leading parties must be represented on the boards of precinct election officers. In some counties only one party has candidates, and the local election boards decided that if the law per mits they would name officers, all o f whom belong to the'party holding the primary, thus being better enabled to satisfy all the candidates with their appointments. The State election law, which permits Stateiofficiais and employes at the Capital to regester at their homes on election day does not apply to the primary, in the opinion of the Attorney General, and those Officials who are not already registered, if any, must qualify. by registering on the special primary registration day.

At a meeting held on June 30 the Board of Directors of the Bank of Co lumbia increased and paid to the stock holders a semi-annual dividend of 6J percent., and strengthened its finan cial standing by placing an additional S5,000 to its surplus fund. This bank with its capital stock of 830,000 now has a surplus fund of 335,000 which makes it one of the strongest finan cial institutions in the State. It has for many years been one of the few banks in the State with a surplus fund equal to its capital and has reg ularly paid to its stock holders semi annual dividends of 6 per cent. We congratulate the officers and directors of the old institution on the splendid showing. Sunday School Convention Post poned. Owing to the fact that our local workers have their time engaged on the fourth Saturday in July and from the fact that none of our State workers could be here at that time, we have decided it best to put off the Sunday School Convention until the third Saturday in August. It will be at Egypt. The program will appear in the News in due time. Death at Glenviile. Last Friday morning, Mr. Howard Webb, who was born and -reared in the Glenviile country, died after a brief illness. For many years he had been an exemplary citizen and had many friends. He was a Master Mason, a member of Glensfork Lodge, and was buried by the Fraternity. He leaves a wife and several children, who have the sympathy of a host of friends. Mr. M. O. Stevenson, who is mak ing an effort to establish a high rec ord in the production of corn, o n up land, makes a good report as to pros pects for success. His only worry at this date is that his corn is so dense that he needs a carload of lightning bugs in his field t o enable him to give it the last working. If yon have any bugs to spare just mail them to M. O. Stevenson, Columbia, K y . Act at once as the corn needs its last Ltip of the hoe and Mr. Stevenson needs light in his field.

From reports issued by the Depart ment of Agriculture it is expected that the wheat crop this year will be in the neighborhood of 744,000,000 bushels, a real bumper harvest. But great as the crop appears to be, it has not kept pace with the population The farm product of the United States does nob match in growth the number of persons to be fed. This, in fact, is the great secret in the high cost of all food sup plies in America, because quantity does not increase nearly so fast as popula tion. The value of farm products grows greater each year. Last year ib was more than $9,000,000,000. Bub it was due more to the extremely high price for produce than to the great quantity produced. Every year the American people eat a larg er proportion of all the things this country grows, and have a smaller proportion to export At the present rate of this tendencv it will nob be long before cotton will be the import ant agricultural article which the United States will have to sell to the Old World. We will need the pro duct of our farms to feedlthe work ingman, It will be his product that musb be peddled before the nations of the globe. In the meantime we must cater to the prodpeer of our food. Missionary Rally. Last Sunday night a large audience gathered at the Christian Church and was highly entertained by a number of children, who were billed to give a. missionary entertainment. The exer cises commenced promptly at S o'clock, and for one hour every body in the congregation was all attention. The exercises consisted o f missionary songs and recitations, the entire lob of children doing themselves proud The appeal for mission money, in song and verse, was pathetic, and when the baskets werepassed a liberal contri bution was given. There were so many children, we can nob make special mention. Suffice it to say, all did splendidly. Credit is due Misses Mary Lucy Lowe and Vic Hughes for the excellent training of the children. Committed Suicide. Grant Wade, a man about thirty five or forty years old, who lived be tween Jamestown and Russell Springs, committed suicide last Thursday by taking poison. The only cause assigned is, that a married daughter with children, to whom the deceased was very much at tached, w a s making preparations, with her husband, to remove to an other country. This is said to have brooded upon Mr. Wade's mind, and is supposed to have been the cause for the rash act. Drowned in Russell's Creek. Last Saturday afternoon about 6;30 o'clock, Mr. Orville Gnder, a young man, married, about 22 years old, was drowned near the home of Mr. S. A. Epperson, o u Russell's creek. Mr. Grider was in company with a party who were fishing and he attempted to wade across the stream. When he reached deep water he cramped and drowned before assistance could reach him. His wife was a Miss Lapsley. . Dropped Dead. Mrs. Elia Workman, who was about sixty-five years old, who lived near Pellytou, dropped dead last Sat urday afternoon. Heart trouble is given as the cause. She was an ex cellent old lady. Squire Skipworth, au old colored man, who came to Columbia from Cumberland county, several years ago, died in the colored settlement, in the suburbs of this town, last Satur day afternoon. He appeared to be about sixty years old. He was indus trious, never refusing a job of work, and was well-liked by his people. Mr. Doc Walker, who has beeu a very attentive salesman at the store of the Paul Drug Co., has tendered his resignation and has accepted a posi tion with Russell & Co. He invites his friends to call and see him. Prof. A. W. Glasgow will teach in. the High School, Catlettsburg, Ky., this coming year. He will be at the head of mathematics and Latin.
