Mr. R. F. Paull, Prominent Bank- 
cr and Business Man of Co* 
lUBbia Dies Suddcaly. 


The people of Columbia were great- 
If ahocktd this Ctm&tv) ■wrniog 
when the ioteUit^eDce spread over the 
city that Mr. Richard F. Paull had 
•oddMlj died at hte Ihm^ Ch* .«Bd 
oomiog about 6:45. 

The deceas e d was a native of Cum- 
berlaod eoaatj, but became a eltiian 
of this place more than forty years 
ago, and from the day of his arrival Id 
ColiuiMa to the hour of his death, 
he was active in the busiDea» affairs of 
the town and also the county. 

For many years he was a large stoclc- 
bolder ia the Bank of Columbia and 
for more than twenty years he has 
beea Vice President of the institution. 
B» was known in <Adair county and 
all ttm adjoiniut; counties as a suc- 
cessful tinancier. He was very fond 
Of the hanking biisinsss, and besides 
his hoMtags im the Banir of Colombia, 
he was largely interested in the Monti- 
osllo itankion Company, and also own- 
•doMk Id wm of U» banks of

Mr Fred Hiil and Mr. A. O Taylor. 

Mr. Paull has been a very successful 
■MS, aad as the fruttsof his tadoatry 
he has left a large estala. 

Soon after he hrrsaia a citizaa of 
this place ha «aa BMfrtad to Misa 
Reua Walker, who was a daughter of 
the late W. U. Walker, who will be 
remembered as a prossiMna asasahant 
in his time. No children were born 
to Mr. and Mrs. Paull, and she is left 
ionely, aoatfortless as she and bar Imis- 
band were perfectly devoted to each 
other— sweet hearts every day in the 
week— at times hapfiaM Mmm Msath* 
•z in their cozy home. 

Mr. PauU's illness dates back aboct 
ten weeks, though he was «v»naff fH to 
his bed but little of the time: and to 
Tisitors be always spoke in high hopes 
of returning to health, and during his 
c oD fln a B i a n t he directed his business 
alEaits through others, keeping in 
touch with ali transaetloos, and his 
•dvloe was gaoarally accepted. 

He was a man of large affairs and 
much more than tiiis article will con- 
tain could ba wifttan of Ilia aoeial and 

Mrs. BeiUc Wilson Passes. 

He was liberal in donations for the 
benetit of the town and county, and 
perhaps invested more money in Lib- 
arty Bonds than any other iccal man.

Last Saturday night about 9 o'clock, 
the subject of this mention, after a 
long illness, died at her home, one 
mile from Columbia, oa the Bussall 
Springs road. She waa a victim of 
pulmonary trouble, and had been on 
the decline for several years. 

She was in her sixty soTsnth year, 
and was a daughter of W. D. and 
Sallie Murrell, who died many years 
ago. Her whole life, with tha ezoap- 
tion of^a short period, was spent where 
she died

Adair circuit court were legally dis-

dictments returned at that term. The 
last Legislature ciianged the time of 
baldiar tha oouta ia Adair eoonty 

aad the change took effect before the 
May term. Therefore, the May term 
was held without auttiori^. 

At the May term Robt. Stevens was 
convicted on a felony charge and the 
jury fixed his punishment at three 
years in the penitentiary. It is claim- 
ed by his attorney that he was not 
legally convicted and laat Thursday 
Mr J. f . Montgomery made a motion 
before Judge Carter, asking that he 
be returned to Adair cooa^ for a 
new trial. The motion was overruled 
and we take it that further steps will

We learn that some parents and a 
few young married ladies in Adair 
county are grieving because their sons 
and husbands have been sent to the 
army. They are not looking at their 
departure in the proper spirit. More 
than 90 per cent, of the soldiers who 
will cross over will return, and besides 
no greater honor could be conferred 
upon young men than fighting for 
their country against a foreign foe, 
who is against democracy of humanity. 
When the soldiers, who have gone to 
the front, return, crow n ed with glory, 
many big functions will be given in 
their honor and happinasa will reign 
supreme. At thoaa fnaetiona no 
slacker will be invited — only those who 
have shown their patriotism by fight- 
log for their eonatry or gl^ag of hia 
means to assist the boys iuthetrench-

the Farm-Labor 
Rendei Service 

While women can do much in the solution cf the complex and rather 
pressing farni-labor problem, it should be understood that the man power of 
^ ^^'"^MtW exhausted aod that, except for certain lighter tasks, 

^ Ob account of the demands for labor in necessary industries, and because 
for many years past the cities with their attractions of lii>;h wages and aniuse- 
ments have drawn many men from the farms, there is not now enough labor 
seeking employment to supply the demand of the tcxms for extra help, espe- 
iliUIy durinc the periods of seasonal strate for arittvattac and harrcstlng. 

While madi Is being done by the departments of agricultare and labor 
to ■KjMUie man power for farming operations, much yet remains to be done 
If we are to make sure the saving of tlie crops which have been planted. 

The primaijr resiKHisibUlty must l>e assumed by the regions 'and communi- 
MmM, becMM BO ag fcy of govenunent cu create labor 
to pursue any particular vocation. In all towns and dtics 
B4)BCcnt to agricultural regions there are many men of farm experience who 
can be spared for a day at a time or a week at a time, as the case may be^ 
to help the farmers «ith their most pressing tasks. In many such towns and 
cMm last year wmm were ^pated frooi ordteary bostneas and industry, from 
offices and shops, and crops were cultivated and harvested which otherwise 
might have suffered serious loss. Such adjustments must be made this year 
and undoubtedly will be made when the conuMMltfM ■ i'ltrtl i t i caiM iBle a full 
realization of the necessities of the case. 

Ib Mlaaaiac (he bmb «t farm eqpericaee Ib the cities for fhiBi lahor, many 
women can be utilised to take their places for a few days at a time or for a 
whole season. Generally speaking, it will become more and more necessary 
fv women to take the places of men in all occtipations. 

In addition to relieving men in towns and cities, women can actuuHy 
perfotui many farm tasks each as dairying. vegeteMe cultivation, fruit gather- 
ing, etc. The precise method of utilizing woneflB for farm labor cannot be 
prescribed In any uniform plan, but It win depend upon conditions in the 
community and upon the farms. Of course step'^ must l)e taken to s<'e that 
women laborers are properly hoosed and otherwise are safeguarded from 
MBeoeaniy havMlpa. W«bmb who are inat physically aUe to perform labor 
may be of great service to farmers by ascertaining their needa for labor and 
eadeavoring to supply such needs. Organized groups of women « iger to 
reader public service might well undertake by personal visitation to make 
earn ays of the farm-labor situation in their neighborhood. More helpful even 
IhBB that Ib maaj plaees waald ba for soow of the women of the towns and 
dtlee to take the places of their country sisters during the periods of labor 
stress and actually do the housework In order that the women of the farms 
may help their husbands. Some of the linest of our American women 
are cooking and wasliing dishes in the hospitals of France. The women of 
Btaaee are hatweta die plow haadles. No good wonuui wobM heaitate to 
keep bouse for her sick friends for a week. It would be beautiful service if 
city women would keep house for country women for a little while. Of 
course this is not as attractive or as romantic as binding up the wounds of 
soldiers, but it is one of the things that must be done if the soldiers are to 

It does not seem to be possible to work oat aay anifMm plan of mobilizing 
farm labor or of directing the employment of women on farms. The Important 
thing is to get the problem fairly bef<ire the American people and specially

The United States food administration grain corporation of New York 
estimates that approximately three bushels of grain are lost in every 100 
bushels threshed, because of careless methods, and believes that this amount 
can be saved if every farmer in the country will follow certain simple rules 
whidi bave been outlined. If this is done, and figuring on a basis of 800,000,- 
000 buAels of wheat for this year's crop, which government reports Indicate 
Is exceedingly probable, it means that the staggering' total of 24,000,000 
bushels, worth, at $2.20 a bushel, the huge sum of $52,800,000 will be saved 
to this cotmtry. And this appUcs to udmaft alSBe. The savlas aa oato and 
other small grains will be In propcnrtlon. 

In order to impress upon the farmers the necessity of employing more 
careful methods in threshing, the food administration has just created a 
graliHthreshing division, under the direction of Capt. Kenneth D. Hequem- 
hoarg; an active wheat producer of Oklahoma, and has entered upoa a cam- 
paign which it is hoped will bring about the desired result. It Is proposed 
to carry on educational work among farmers through the medium of thresh- 
ing committees which will be established in each county. These committees 
will be composed of the county food administrator, county agricultural agent 
and a retired thMshenaaa wnwainflng tte local eoaaell of 

hi the Oroat Wheat Bott. 

Agriculturists, threshing machine men and others with an Intimate knowl- 
edge of threshing-machine operations, readily admit that there Is a Uf waste 
in threshing operations, but ask how much of this waste can be saved, and 
in what manner It can be accomplished. In answer to this, the food admin- 
istration grain corporation states that it believes 1% bushels In every 100 
threshed can be saved by having all machines go Into harvest In excellent 
repair, with ample power, and by seein;: that during harvest they are suffi- 
ciently adjusted to meet varying conditions, so that a minimum of grain is 
blown into the straw pile ; that one bushel in every 100 threshed can be saved 
by baving all machines in such repair that very little grain leaks under and 
around them on to the ground, and if what does leak out In this manner, and 
is otherwise scattered about the machine. Is cleaned and threshed before the 
machine leaves the tield; that % bushel in every 100 threshed can be saved 
by careful handling of bundles from tbe shock to the machine or stack, and 
by arranging the bundle wacoas SO Oat all grain which seatteia diereia shall 
be caught and saved. 

The percentage of wheat WhIch has beca lost in the past by being di.s- 
tributed upon the ground or Into straw piles to be fed later to the animals on 
the farm is a very consldMable one, and farmers as a rule have overlooked 
these leakages vrith tbe excoae tbat the stock would get the benefit when they 
were turned in. The food administration is particularly anxious to discour- 
age this practice during the present year, when no wheat at all should be fed 
to animals. Many reports have already come >n of straw piles appearing 
green widi qproated grain. In some sections of Kansas threshing outfits 
made It profitable practice last year to follow, other threshing outfits, pur- 
chase the straw pile and rethresh. ^stances of from S to 7 per cent saving 
of wheat by this rethreshlng process have been (dminon. 

The importance of having all machinery in perfect shape for threshing 
cannot be overestimated. This includes keeping the thresher cylinder up to 
speed ; keeping all teeth straight and sharp ; seeing tbat tbe pulleys and belts 
are capable of delivering sufficient power, with a safe margin of excess, to 
keep the separator up to the required speed, under average operating condi- 
tions ; making proper adjustment of concaves and other parts of the separator,

Men Having Gray Eyes Have 
Preved to Be Best Martanen 

Gray-eyed men. sasrs a Fort Worth 

rorrespondont, are the best marksmen. 

This has been proved after eight 
months' experience at the rifle range 
of Camp Bowie, and besides old army 
experts irfll tell you the same thing. 

When Capt. E. R. Rreese was here 
giving his instruction in the use of the 
new Title he said that proficiency in 
marksmanship usually ran according 
to die color of the eyes, then baving 
gray beintr the best shots, gray-blue 
coming next, blue third, hazel fourth, 
brown fifth, and black sixth. 

Records show that soldiers whose 
eyes are light brown to black cannot 
shoot with accuniry at a distance 
i greater than 500 yards and at 800 
yards miss the target altogether. 
! Even with different nations the 
^ color of the eyes has determined 
! shooting ability. Nearly every Mex- 
' lean has brown or black eyes and they 
—well, they dia dM posNSt *ols in 
the world.

A new system of incubation hatches 

The greatest loss in preserved eggs 
comes from die fact that fertile eggs 
are preserved, according to C. S. An- 
derson of the Colorado Agricultural 
colletre. Fertile eggs will keep equally 
as well as infertile eggs, providing at 
no tiBW they have been broo^t to a 
degree of heat where the germ starts 
to develop. In holding fertile eggs for 
preserving, they should not be allowed 
to get above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. 
During the early spriag moaths this Is 
easily d<«e, but in warmer weather 
poultrymen should take the precaution 
and produce infertile eggs. Fertiliza- 
tion is not an incentive to egg produc- 
don among domestic fowls, and the 
number of eggs iffoduced will be in no 
way diminished. 

The fertile eggs contain no gena to 
be developed, withstand more heat, 
are slow to decay, and can be preserv- 
tvldi the mlnlmom amount of loss.

Added to lemon ice, it both colors and 
flavors it. It slso win faralsh materi- 
al for mint sauce to serve with lamb 
and mutton. Parsley, too, should be 
planted. You will find use for It every 
day for garnishing and also for flavor-

to our duties, we also fcrew more 
satisfied. Atiother tiling that 
made it harder than it would 
have been otherwisp, were the 
vaccinations and inocculations 
that we experienced while 've 
were there. -Ve only spent one

Since we left Cemp Taylw^ I 
have been gettinpr along the fin- 
est kind. In fact, could't ex- 
pect to get along any better 

My brother, Barney, as you 
know, was called at the same 
time and we are still together in 
this company. 

We had a cheerful time in the 
train, on our way down here, as 
it was quite a new thing for 
moot of the bogn. We aln de- 
lighted in waving at the pretty 
giris as we 'passed along. We 
made the trip in aboat twenty, 
foar hoars. Whdn we arrived 
at this camp we were just a lit- 
tle blue on account of having 
less conveniences than at Camp 
Taylor and also the climate of 
this country. However, it soon 
wore off. so we have enjoyed 
ourselves every since.

white at bow and stem on a phos-

deck of an emerged submarine it flash-

such a night in the zone there Is the

in the white wake of a slow ship, keep-

ing for dawn to sheer off and strike. 
That Is why, as dark comes on, a de- 
stroyer is apt to drop back from the 
side of the ship and lurk along the 
wak«^ aeeking its prey also. I remem- 
ber one Tdvety blaA nl^t Sudden- 
ly a great white trail shot across our 
bow from port to starboard and just a 
few^ yffi-ds ahead. If a porpoise is too 
narrow to make a torpedo trail, this 
seemed too broad, bnt de^ enoo^ It 
waa Um wake of a destroyer that had 
It across in a hurry.

The dreomstaneo of tho do-

incident preceding its daatmetioD 

had in the minds of some persons 
a peculiar interest for a long 
time after the event, and I will 
give the facts substantially as 
they come to me from an old cit- 
izen who lived near at the time. 

The church was located on the 
old Glasgow road, at a point be- 


nontOMir w—ti. TUa was 

kept up for some time, not to 
the spiritual edification of the 
churches, or the peace of the 
ne ghborhood, for, it is human 
nature to take sides in a fight of 
almost any kind, and the spirit 
of the leaders spread more or 
leas to tfaoir followers, to the dis- 
of tho food fillowship

four large chiaMfi, which gave 

it additional strength. Of all 
the buildings in the neighborhood 
it seemed to be the one that 
could withstand a storm. It was 
erected jointly by the Baptists 
and Cumberland Presbyterians, 
with the understanding that the 
last namod denomination was to

and on other special occasions. 
Thus the church was built in the 
spirit of fraternity, and in that 
spirit it was called "Union 
Church." All went well for a 
time. The hearts of the people 
seemed to be of one accord, 
though belonging to different de-

Americans ! Have we forgotten some 
of the best foods we once knew? Are 
yon using hominy? Why not follow 
the ""•"r'" of our loreCathws and use 
much of flds good com product? The 
first settlers of America learned from 
the Indians how to prepare the Indian 
com for use. They removed the hulls 
from the dcy grain by ponnding it in 
a flMTtar with a pestte. The cracked 
com they called by the Indian name 
"hominy." Hominy became one of 
their staple foods without which they 
woold oCteB haTS gone hongry. They 
cookad It la lnc» Itoa 
over the felatfac loaa 

They also learned to remove the 
germ and hull from the com by boiling 
the grain wifh lye and then washing 
thorou^ily. They sonetimes called 
this prodoct *%alled com" bat It Is now 
more often called "lye hominy."

I Underground Railroad and 
I Ui e l e ii Caueut Room, Two 
Exiravaoaaeea at CapitoL 

One eC the curiosities of the capitoi 

Is the miniature railroad that connects 
the senate, via underground passage, 
with the senate office building, relates 
a Waahlngtaw correipondent. Ihecars 
of ttia railroad flp««te en m Bonorall 
by electricity. 

The road is about 150 yards in length 
and has a double track. When one 
car la at one end of the track the other 
car Is at flie other end, and Tlce Teraa. 
The railroad was Intended originally to 
aid senators in making speed from 
their offices to the senate chamber. Roll 
calls do not require much time in the 
aenate and there Is danger that If a 
roll call is asked when a senator Is in 
his office he will miss the roll call un- 
less he uses the electric cur. That 
saves him about ten or fifteen seconds' 

The road is open t» the public and 

it costs nothing to ride. As a conse- 
quence messenger boys, clerks and 
Janitors use the railroad freely, while 
senators, except on days when the 
weather la inclement, prefer to walk in 
the open air l>etween their offices and 
the senate chamber. 

Besides the initial equipment, the 
rdad entails an expense of abeat 100 
weekly for the employ of two opera- 
tors and probably half that amount for 
electricity. This would make a yearly 
expense of $3,900 as a very conserva- 
tive estimate. As a matter of fact the 
railroad probably coats more like ffl^OOO 
or $7,000 a year. 

The senate has another extravagance 
that is almost an eyesore. This is the 
palatial eancos room ttiat cost no one 
knows bow many thooaands of dollars 
when the senate ofllce building was 
constructed. The room is finished 
throughout in marble and has immense 
crystal chandeliers. It has the largest 
seating capacity of any room in the 
capltol except tb» hall o( the hows 
and the senate chamber. 

Yet the acoustic properties of the 
room are so bad that It is never used, 
and It atanda there as an expensive 
monument to some one's mistake in 
planning the senate office building. Of 
course a person would ordinarily pay 
no attention to such a thinj; as bad 
acoustic properties, but in this room it 
cannot help but be noticed.
