THE ADAIR:COUNTYNEWS n iSafeuard Other People's Ihik -e dren. "Whenever it is necessary, for the welfare of the children, to insist that one or more families be quarantined," says the July Woman's Home Companion, "it is astonishing how frequently this is taken as a personal insult by the parents. It seems to be considered as an infringement upon the family rights and not for one moment to be tolerated." This editorial has to do with a widespread evil. It says further: "A. striking instance came to notice recently in a suburban town. For some weeks sporadic cases of diphtheria had been ap pearing. Every care was taken to find out the source of the trouble but all to no avail. There were carriers at large, and no one knew who was responsi ble. So it was decided to make a systematic examination of the throats of the school children, and to send cultures of all sus-picous-looking cases to the lab oratory. It was found that twenty-five per cent of these cul tures gave a positive reaction, so, of course, these children were promptly banished, and quaran tine ordered by the board of health. The nature of the work and the necessity for these pre cautions were explained to the parents in every instance; nev ertheless, some of these same parents were very angry, and tried various devices to break the quarantine- One of the mothers threatened a law suit unless her child was promptly taken back to school and the sign put on her house by order of the board of health immediately re moved! "Another mother entirely ig nored the notice sent to her, and flatly refused to keep her child in the house, though she knew he was not well when she sent him to school. It was several hours after this child had been sent home before the mother could be brought to terms. Mean while, to spite the authorities who had perpetrated this out rage upon her family by barring her boy out of school, she sent him over to one of her neighbors to play with the children. Two of these children promptly con tracted diphtheria, and the younger one, scarcely more than a baby, developed a malignant type and died in two days. It would certainly be using a harsh expression to say that the child was murdered, and yet if he had been neatly shot he would have suffered far less."

Reynolds in the July American Magazine, "is the moccasin of the American Indian worn without a stocking. San dals also, are good. The sneak ers of children and tennis shoes with pliable rubber soles are next best. The shoes generally on the market for young children are without heel; there is a level sole for the thread and the toes are wide, but it is usually made of hard, unyielding leather."

During fifty years of Dem ocratic freedom of the seas and of commerce following Thomas Jefferson, 80 percent., of Amer ican commerce on the high seas was carried in American ships. During fifty years of Republican high tariffs and hide-bound sea traffic, our merchant marine dwindled until only 8 per cent. , of American commerce was car ried in American bottoms. Un der the Democratic ship registry act of 1914 both the number of merchantmen carrying the American flag and the per centage of commerce carried in American bottoms have more than doubled. Moreover, under Democratic tariff and shipping laws, the United States in 1916 has become both the leading commercial nation and the lead ing ship building country of the earth. All this country required, the facts show, was to cut loose from its Republican swaddling clothes. State Journal. Peucil Thrusts. A West Virginia woman, who has used tobacco for 87 years, died the other day at the age of 101. Served her right. One sure thing about wild oats they never fail to grow. Never fear, July of on the way. We wonder if the Republican candidate "Hughes to the line?" What irony of fate! Silver is going up but Bryan is going down. The month of May, 1916, pro duced a greater volume of wage increases than any preceding 12 months of Americad history. Against this wall of prosperity, Republican spell-binders will make little progress in trying to stampede American workingmen into voting a return to Republi can conditions. The Italians are continuing their victories over the Austrians. In the battle of Carrizal there were 700 Mexicans against 84 Americans. For the first time in ten months wheat sold in Chicago, below $he dollar mark. The Italians have sunk two Austrian transports loaded with troops and ammunition. Trigg county voted in favor of a bonded debt to build roads by a majority of 82 votes. At Milton, Ky., Bert Leather- iman, a blacksmith, shot and killed his wife and then killed himself. Allen Messer, the sheriff of Knox county, was shot and kill ed at the church on Sinking Creek. Mrs. Edmonia Long, the wid ow of John S. Long, of Louis ville, died Saturday at an ad vanced age, The slowness of enlistment in the Kentucky Guards is quite a disappointment to the officers of the different regiments. The Story of a Famous Hymn. The famous hymn beginning "God moves in a mysterious way," known as "Cowper's Hymn," had its origin as fol lows: Cowper was all his life the victim of melancholia and more than once attempted suicide. One day, bent upo.i destroying himself, he got into a cab and ordered the driver to taKe him to a certain point on the river where he intended to drown him self. The cabman, noticing his strange appearance and feeling that all might not be right with him, drove him about the city and finally stopped in front of the poets door. Stepping out and recognizing the old familiar surroundings and shocked at the thought of , his narrow escape, Cowper exclaimed, "God moves in a mysterious way his wonders to perform," and, rushing in, immediately composed the im mortal hymn. The Government has recently been advised by a correspondent in California that a variety of wheat is being advertised under the name of "Titantic." The assertion is made that it is a new variety of wheat discovered in England about four years ago, and that a small quantity of seed was brought to the United States by one of the survivors of the ill-fated Titanic. The wheat is represented as having extremely high yielding power, the returns reaching as high as 7,000-fold. A photograph sent by this cor respondent shows a head identi cal in appearance with the wide ly exploited "Alaska" wheat. Five acres of the wheat are said to be growing in the State of Washington, and the seed, it is believed, will be offered at high prices after harvest. The de partment has no further or more definite information concerning this variety, but farmers and dealers are cautioned to be on their guard concerning this new exploitation. It is understood that in return for Rooseyelt's support of Hughes the Republicans wiJl nominate the Colonel for the Senate from New York, and make Gen. Wood Secretary of War. Roosevelt has declined the Progressive nomination and asks the members of his party -to sup port Hughes. Six members of the National Committee voted against the endorsement of any candidate and nine refused to vote. Peter Lee Atherton, at Hod genville, agreed to construct a road section in Larue county and keep it in repair if the county would agree to construct- and keep in repair another section. William T. Underwood, a broth er of Senator Oscar Underwood, of Alabama, is dead. He former ly lived in. Louisville.
