Mr. J. C Blair and family have re
turned from Iowa It was a sad com
ing to them Since they left less
than a year ago, one sou died in the
array, and while en route here Mrs
Blair's father, Mr. Abe Brown died
at Pellyton, and when they reached
their farm there was no dwelling, it
having been burned about two weeks
ago. Mr. and Mrs. Blair have many
friends in Adair county, and every
thing possible will be done to cheer
their sad hearts.

Mr. Claud Montgomery, of this
Place Dies in Wardsworth,
Ohio. Interment Here.
Mr. Claud Montgomery, a son of
Mr. and Mrs Scott Montgomery, left
here some months ago for Wards
worth, Ohio, where he was employed
in a match factory, and where he was
a valuable assistant until ten days ago
when he became a victim of typhoid
fever. He and his friends were hope
ful at start, but on Wednesday morn
ing of last week he was much worse
and his parents, wife and son, this
place, were notified that he was in a
serious condition.
His father, wife and little son left
immediately for his bedside, but he
lived only a few hours after their ar
rival, a dispatch reaching here Friday
night that he was dead. The remains
arrived Monday, and many friends
went to the Montgomery home to
view the body and to express sympa
thy for those who had been bereft of
a husband, father, son and brother.
Claud Montgomery, had he lived
until March would have been thirty
four years old. He was a man of
correct habits and very attentive to
business entrusted to him. He had
been a salesman for various merchants
in Columbia, all speak of him in the
highest terms. 3trictly honorable
and at all times at his po3t of duty.
He leaves a wife and one son, father
and mother and one sister.
The funeral services were held at
the Baptist church, conducted by the
pastor, Rev. O P. Bush, Tueseay
morning at 10 a. m , the deceased be
ing a member of that religious body,
many relatives and friends being
present, all in the profoundest sym
pathy for those who had been so sore
ly grieved. After religious exercises
the remains were conveyed to the
city cemetery there to remain until
the resurrection morn.
May God comfort the widow and
little son, father, mother and sister,
is the wish of this entire community.
Church Loyally.
When a person connects himself or
herself to a religous body, it is be
cause the organization adhers to the
principels to which he or she subscri
bes In all Churches the applicant
for membership obligates himself not
only to attend the regular services,
morning and evening, but all other.
In order for ajChurch to prosper its
members must be loyal, and if they
fail in this the organization will go to
pieces. It is noticeable in some or
ganizations in Columbia, especially at
the evening services, from twenty to
thirty-five members, living in town,
are not in their places.This is not en.
couraging to the pastor and causes
cold chills creep over the backs of the
faithful. It takes a live church to ac
complish good. Everytning is on the
drag when an organization is largely
composed of dead members. Every
member knows his duty, and we ad
monish them to wake up and attend
services at their respective Churches,
morning, evening and the the mid
week prayer meetings.
Will Remove to Cave City.
Adair county is soon to lose one of
its most excellent families, Mr. Luth
er Williams, wife and children, who
will remove from Montpelier to Cave
City. Our people will regret this
separation, as Mr. Williams has been
a prosperous merchant, druggist and
farmer of this county fdr more than
twenty j ears, and Mrs Williams is a
most excellent lady with a number of
bright and interesting children. They
will all be missed from Adair county,
and Cave City is to be congratulated.
Mr. Williams will engage in the drug
business at his new home, having for
med a fartnership with Mr. E. T.Wil
lis, who many years ago resided in Co
lumbia. From Texas.
