Section New Highway Been Closed Again (From Tuesday's Daily Herald.) The section of the new highway in course of construction between Co lumbia nnd Spring Hill, between Ash ton's mill and the Rear Creek pike will be closed to traffic for the next four or five days while the surface is be i tig put down. Contractors are well pleased with tho progress which has been made on the new road during the past three or four weeks, and believe that before real winter weather sets in the road will have been completed to tho Bear Creek pike, which will be used as a detour road during the winter. The new road has been complete.1 ( for "a distance of two or three miles JJiiStSkip. of Spring Hill,, and the rock (on 88 at foil for tho asphalt has been' put down on several additional miles between the Columbia and Spring Hill sections. Engineers believe only a short time next Piring will 1,0 required to com plete the new highway, with anything like favorable weather during the ear ly winter. (From Monday's Daily Herald.) Henderson E. Akin, today tendered his resignation as justice of the pace troni the tenth district to take effect from the date of the election of his successor. Squire Akin tiled his res ignation with Judge Whitthorne, of ,the county court. The resignation will bo .certified to the election commis sioners by Judge AVhitthorne and a special election will be called at an early date to Till the vacancy. Until that time Squire Akin will serve. Rad health is the cause of Justice Akin's resignation. He only recently underwent an operation and Jiad to have one of his feet amputated. It "is iwitlj. difficulty that he gets about. 1U reported that Mr. Akin found 'in the recent election that his attitude on the bond issue for roads was not al together in harmony with the domi nant sentiment of his district and that he preferred that a member of the court be elected who was in sympathy i with that sentiment. However. Mr. Akin made no statement to this effect, but it is regarded as probable that the road bond issue advocates will add another membor to their majority in the county court as a result of the res ignation. The sentiment of the dis trict, contrary to what had been claim ed in the past, apparently favors the good roads program and it is expected that some one in harmony with this program will succeed Squire Akin, which would give the supporters of 1 bonds at least fourteen of the twenty- four .members, with one member not ! committed. , Squire Akin's resignation is the sec cud from the tenth district since the fl?etio?i of 1018 when justices wore ;(hoscn, Squire Taylor having resign ed nearly a year ago. It makes the j fifth ..vacancy 11 the present court all j by resignation, as follows: Squire 1 Harris, of tho fourth district; Squire Swann, of the sixth; Squire Webster, of the ninth, and Squire Taylor and Squire Akin, of the tenth. PAYMENT OF WHEEL TAX CONTINUING BOOKS OF CLERK SHOW NO LESS THAN 7,274 VEHICLES OF ALL KINDS IN COUNTY. Temporarily our railroads have leached Hie limit of their capacity. They can have no greater volume. Railway ,Uo says they need 712101'. more freight cars and only snn.noo can be built yearly. There Is an estimat ed shoreage of fifty per cent in loco motives. Five .years is suggested as I the minimum tim in which railroad facilities ran be brought fo normal. '' (From Tuesday's Daily Herald.) A decided falling off in the payment of "wheel tax" was shown at the of fice of County Court Clerk Lipscomb during the mouth of October, but this was to be expected, the wheel tax hav ing been due and payable 011 January 1 of this year, but payment has been strung out during the entire year. Already during this month, the 'wheel tax has been paid on seven automo biles, bringing tho total number . of registeod automobiles ni the county to 1,751; on eleven wagons, bringing the total number f waogons in the county to 2.22S and on two buggies, bringing the total number of these vehicles to ;;,2!)2, or a grand total of 7.274 vehicles in the county. It. was estimated at the first of the year that the tax would be paid on no more than fi.OOO vehicles of all de scriptions, giving a revenue of approx imately -f'iC.OOn, when as a matter of fact the revenue collected amounts to approximately $i::.noo to bo. applied, to road purposes. On account of the overflow in Mt. rieasant and other schools of the county ' the board ' of education has again deferred the election of a tru ant officer for this term. There are already more pupils in the Mt. Pleas ant schools than can be housed proper ly and if an attendance officer found a lot of children in that community who are not in school there would bo no place to send them. While conditions are worse in this respect at Mt. Pleas ant than elsewhere in the county, they exist at several of tho schools and more than one church has been brought into, requisition to take care of the surplus. The King's' Daughters of Mt, Pleas ant,, have generously tendered the use of a building which they have for tak ing care of the surplus children and it will probably be necessary to add to the faculty of the school. It has been expected that the county board would elect an attendance officer at the Sep tember meeting, hut faced with a shortage of space in the schools and a record breaking attendance the elec tion was deferred. It was again de ferred at the October and November meetings. There has been some criticism of the board for its failure to take steps for the enforcement of the attendance law, but the members explain that it is useless to incur this additional ex lenuc for the county unless provision can be made to take care of the sur plus students. Already the attend ance is larger everywhere than it has heretofore been and during the war no additions were made to the school plants so that the board is powerless to provide rooms. The funds are lim ited too and the twenty-five per cent increase In teachers' salaries guaran teed by the county court has been ex ceeded, because otherwise teachers could not h"ave been secured.

(From Tuesday's Daily Herald.) The convening of circuit court has had a healthry effect upon the pay ment of dog taxes at the office of County Trustee J. Ross Ruins. Each mail Is filled with money orders, and money for dog tags and farmers from every section of the county are com ing into tho office each day to secure the receipts which will protect them from indictment by the grand jury now in session. Up until the present time only 1,700 have paid dog tax, however, 200 hav ing been paid in the last day or two. This is but little more than half the number paid on last year, and more than 3.000 less than should haye'heen paid on. Judge Turner instructed the grand jury to indict those who have failed to obey the law, and those who have failed to secure the license tags for dogs up until this time are laying themselves liable to indictment and to the payment of fine and costs which will run to more than forty dollars for each offense. . (From Saturday's Daily Herald.) The sale of $00,000 worth of floating indebtedness bonds by the city of Columbia last night to M. G. Hill and Company, of Cincinnati, at par and ac crued interest at six per cent to date and a premium of $12(1, was of sec ondary importance to the election oT three new members of the city board of education. The terms of W. P. Hoyd, Ulna II. Foster and A. Looney Walker, as members of the board having expired, the city council last night elected T. E. Hugger, E. Yoe.s and Spence McFaJto succeed them. The election, of the new members was not , unanimous, Alderman Alf Rrazier hnving , nominated the tluea members of the old hoard to succeed themselves, but Iouis Barker, of the second ward placed in nomination the names of the newly elected members, and they polled the majority of the votes and were declared legally elect ed. There has been considerable discus sion of the election of the new mem bers of the board, and there is an un dercurrent rumor of "political move" for the purpose of using the axe on a political enemy. The sale of the bonds last night at tract (id considerable attention among bend buyers throughout the country, a large number of bids having hern submitted, and several bond buyers were present, in person to bid on the sinking fund bonds. The highest bid being that of the M. G. Hill Company, represented by J. Shelby Coffey and C. A. Parker, it was accepted, de spite the fact that some of the buy ers agreed to offer, more if the bonds were put up at auction and sold, but Mr. Coffey insisted that his company had made a bona fide offer In compli ance wi tint-he adu'ftisf nif ncyiaml lipl put up a certified check to show good faith, and that it having been found by the board that his company had submitted the best and highest bid, it would bo unfair to put up the bonds at auction without giving due notice to all parties concerned. After consid erable discussion the board concur red in the opinion of Mr. Coffey and (lie bonds wero declared sold to the Hill company, which company will pay attorney's fees and incidental costs, the city to furnish the bonds. No other business of great impor tance was transacted, the regular rou tine occupying tho remainder of the session of the board. According to the report submitted the city is in splendid financial shape according to the budget appropriations made at the beginning of the present year. rafonola Ificf rola and i Owners Attention Do you want llic Monthly Supplement mailed to your address each month?

HEAVY ISSUANCE MARRIAGE LICENSE OCTOBER SHOWS GOOD INCREASE OVER CORRESPONDING MONTH OF LAST YEAR. TURKEYS HIGH BUT RECEIPTS ARE LIGHT HOWEVER, SEVERAL CAR LOADS WILL GO TO MARKET BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS END. The bag-pipe is tho earliest musical instrument on record. It appears upon sculptures dating from 1.000 R. C. (From Tuesday's Daily Herald.) October was a good month for Dan Cupid in Maury county. During that month no less than forty-one couples were united in tho holy bonds of wed lock, which was a good increase over the number married during the cor responding month of 1919. It is apparent that the present month will also show an Increase over November of 191!) if tho rate of issu ance is continued, eleven couples al ready having been given license this month. (From Tuesday's Daily Herald.) Shipment of turkeys for the Thanks giving market have already commenc ed and the Columbia Produce Compa ny has sent forward two car loads nnd is now packing a third car. Several other cars will go from the county between now and the close of the sea son. Put from the receipts so far the indications point to a rather light crop of turkeys this year. The great national bird, consider ing the prices paid for other farm pro ducts, is selling high. Dealers are paying thirty cents for turkeys and the quality is good. The birds usually, are fat and are weighing well, hut for some reason the number, iu the county is hardly up to expectations. Many farmers in the county hold back their turkeys for tho Chistmas mar ket, especially if they are hatched out late so that, they will have a better growth. The unusually wet spring and sum mer played havoc with many flocks of turkeys and unquestionably cut down the number, but with the price at thirty cents thousands, of dollars will be distributed in the county be cause the average American does not think that he has had a real dinner on Thanksgiving day without the na tional bird to decorate it. , "To hold a Vacuum bottle erect Is the ' tjj puruose of a recently-designed' four""1 legged stand that'ean be"strap!ped',to vL1' t,; ' ' ''''''' V -' ,;v ' 1,1 'te 7l Ht'iii ji! bottle.
