There is nob a hamlet in Green county but knows Geo W. Whitlocka. For years he was a prominent and very success ful merchant at Fry, people tradiDg with him from all the surrounding country. When he went.on the road he took up his residence in Campbells ville, it being the most central point. Besides representing the wholesale house mentioned, he is interested in a retail business in his home town. He is ' popular with every body, due to the courteous manner in which he does business. Socially, he is a very com panionable gentlemen, and his word is his bond. There is no friction be tween him and his competitors. It is hail fellow; well met with them all. Hjs acquaintance in Adair covers all the business points, and his visits to the county are cordially received. Mr. Whitlock lias a wife and sever al children and he takes a great de ligbt in working for them. We trust that the prosperity that he is now en joying will continue with him until the end of his existence, and when he has finished his work here below, he will hear the welcome plaudit, enter in and sit at My right.

Bush closed a very inter esting meeting in Eussell county last week. It was held with a Church about three miles from Jamestown. While there was only one addition, the Church was greatly revived, and the attendance fine. On the 9th of this month Rev. Bush will begin a meeting at Milltown, There will be services in the United Brethren church Sunday morning, 11 a. m., topic, "True Service," in the evening 7:30 p. m., "A Model Congre gation," by Bev.

" - -v ake tfp The first and' second days of Novem ber is the time aorreed an road on the dug hill oa 't&lg tabllshed by the surveyjlquires Shep herd and Ellis have beenvse)ected ttf take charge of the work aadJj of them have agreed to do so. they will go over the survey in a few days to determine what is necessary to be done and will map out a course of ac tion which will be published as soon as possible. Heretofore we have called attention to the importance of this movement and we trust that the peo ple of Columbia as well as those living on the road will respond in an unstint ed manner. Too long Columbia has already waited for development, wait ed for business that never comes: too long we have whittled cedar and hoped for better business conditions without making an energetic move to improve, As matters now stand we mustet busy or share the same handicaps in the future as in the past. Between Neatsville and the top of Dug Hill a distance of one and a half miles, the road is rough, steep and almost im passible the greater part of the year. Beyond Neatsville to Casey county the road is fine, a large part of it being graveled, and from the top of the hill to Columbia or to the terminus of the new pike is fine nine months in the year. If the road is opened on the estab lished grade on this hill it would af ford a splendid auto outlet as well as inlet to a fertile part of this country as well as to the bluegrass counties of the State. This work means much to the upper end of the county, much to the people along the road and equally as much to the business interests of Columbia All ought to welcome this movement and all ought to assist. If you can't join in the work give money other val uable aid. If the road is opened on the survey the people directly in terested will give the gr?,vel. If Your Motto Be, Lie, Steal, Drink and Swear. When you lie, lie down in sweet slumber; when you steal, steal always from bad associates; when you drink, drink nothing but cold water; when you swear, swear that you will try those shoes at Albin Hurray's. 49-lt.

I dropped my subscription to a num ber of papers last spring, but I am go ing to come back for your paper. It' is so full of the simple country life that I have missed its weekly visits, although personally, I do not know a single person in Adair county. But its news items are about the country people and country life that I love so well, and I have come, through one year's subscription, to know much of Adair counoy and its good people. No paper published in any of our large cities can reach the point ofpicturing country lifeasjou do. E. H.

This is the first red Berkshire ever brought to this county and all who have seen her are highly pleased. It is the purpose of the buyers to get the best of this breed of hogs and from the beginning no one need fear that an inferior .hog will be purchased. They are now ne gotiating for a male of merit and later on will offer to the people of this sec tion the hog that has so long been sought the all purpose one, the one that has the fine texture of nqeat of the Berkshire, the beauty of the China and at. prolific as the Duroc.

Yours, Mrs. Robert J. Pentecost. The above speaks in tones that we appreciate and ought to echo from more than a thousand others who read The News. The high cost of paper forces us to advance the subscription price by a change in form and a re duction in its size, but as soon as con ditions permit TJie N.e.ws will appear in its regular size and form an eight page six column paper.
