FEB 20 1902 EDITOR OF NEWS I will give you briefly an account of ruy visit during the past two months which has been a most delightful trip my time being principally spent In Bal timore Washington DO and other places of Interest in the Old Diminlpn I spent three weeks sight seeing jn Marylands Metropolis which isan old and beautiful city It contains the strongest Catholic hold perhaps In the United States and while there I had the rare pleasure of visiting their grand Cathedral and witnessed the beautiful and impressive Sirvlces which were conducted by the Cardinal the only one in America One of the noted features of the city Is a handsome and commanding Statue of Washing ton situated in the center of the city surrounded by a beautiful park Per baps a glimpse Into one of the Depart ment stores would be of Interest These stores are titles within thenx selves at any rate the thronged streets are less crowded during the Christmas time It is interesting and yet a sad sight to try to make your way through these large stores during the busy hol- Idays and watch the vast sea of people who mercilessly hang over tbe various counters watching tbe turn of the poor shop girl 1 visited Fords theater and Academy of Music and saw some of the most famous actors and the best plays of the world From the Navy and boatyard you get a beautiful view of the Chesapeake bay the great arm of the Atlanticand an idea of the vastness and beauty of the water world The swiftly gliding vessels from tug boats to beautiful ocean steamers and sailing vessels and occasionally brave ana determined warriors play upon its waters adding to the stillness a sense of serenity One is lost In the contemplation of vastness and grandeur and lead to exclaim 0 Lord thou indeed dldst move upon the face of the wat era in this moving thou dldst make an Ocean of beauty I was delighted with the beautiful city of Washington The many points of historic interest and things of beau ty which fascinate tbe eye and gladden tbe heart are too numerous to men tion however the Capitol deserves special mention Ahl what feelings animate the true Americans as they look upon its mighty dome and know it is the grandest national capitol of all nations I spent some time In Smithsonian Institute and Na tional Museum The Library building is said to be the finest building in the world and should be visited by all who visit Washington Imagine my feel ings when I stood gazing out from Washingtons monument which is five hundred and fifty five feet towering in tbe air the highest monument in the world This gives one a good idea of tbe comprehension and extension of the city I spent some time with my father and brother atCharlottsvllle Va and while there visited many places of in terest Probably the most historic point of interest in Eeastern Virginia is Montlcello the home of Jefferson It is situated on the top of a beautiful mountain overlooking Charlottesville and the surrounding country for miles The house Is magnificent building in an almost perfect state of preservation It contains thirtysix rooms and its shape would defy that of an architect In fact it Is all shapes combined It has beautiful porches on which Jeffer son used to sit and watch his pet scheme the University of Virginia some four miles away The building is but a physical representation the greatness and loftiness of Jeffersons ideas which were large on all planes whether spiritual or physical Every thing be did shows forth a lotty Ideal andfohlgb cpajlty of character Eels buried on this mouptaln and a handsome mpnument stands on the spot where Ijes all that Is mortal of one of the greatest pioneers qt liberty and justice the world has ever known J visited Jeffersons Matey IaUjtedsidea The IIniveisityof Virgil a Ths isa beautiful Institution in every respect and is situated about Tour miles front Monti cello and as I have statedbe tore is plainly visible from thisplace nestled among the foot bilk of the blue ridge moaBtalne it is truly the pride of the South trow ah educational and historical stafidfrdf at iducatldQ t al because Its fundamental idea is still adhered to and has long ago proven its practicability It is briefly this Its foundation Is broad and Democratic allowing each student w select any branch or profession he wishes In which to perfect himself and not require unnecessary studies It has no Presl dent and does not want any and no guardian on examination day but hon or which honor is that of each indl vldual student It recognizes the etc ments to cultivate rue manhood if the student will coorperate The Univer sity is constantly growing in the form of new and better buildings In re gard to students It is growing each year tbe period of 1000 and 1902 fog the largest in its history The fire of 95 was a great blessing in the end to the University as a result of this tirf Through gifts and otherwise three large brick buildings were added one the Physical Labratory the gilt of Mr Rouce The Rotunda greatly im proved and the Library Increased Thus we see as we always do in cases of individuals good arising out of the ashes of misfortune and adversity Eastern Virginia once the home of su perlluous wealth is learning her lesson of adversity She is suffering in common with the rest of the South but out of her suffering will be evolved a stronger and nobler type of people God in his wondrous wisdom and love works many ways and through many means to engraft In a people certain elements needed in their development Let the South take courage and never fear the giant wolf at the door as he is only there temporally but he has a mission and the wls t will learn by it Poverty in a sense is is not a bad thing after all It is often the medicine by and through which a broader knowledge and cleat er love for ones fellow creatures is de veloped Therefore tbe south is learn- Ing her lesson through poverty the north through riches Let us be pa tient and progressive and learn wher ever we are there is some thing better comlcgif hen we have learned ourlessou well and It will not come until this is done The North with her wonderful riches which comes with ltaU the ne cessltles and luxuries a material world can supply will learn that wealth un less used in an unselfish spirit of service and help will rob the soul of its noblest qualities its most lasting virtues and give Instead a narrow selfish and egotistical life Poverty and wealth both have their lessons to teach Neither are Ideal In them selves but they are mediums by which tbe ideal Is attained I visited Salem Roanoke City and many other points of interest In Virginia which arc too numerous to bMARYE Prince Henry and the People Sensible Americans will rejoice that their Government

stories in his Inimitable manner to the delectation of his hi arers He is a brother of lien P Wat Har din aud the late Judge Charles A Hardin and an uncle of the Rev Mar tin D Hardirr who graduated from Centre College some years ago and has since distinguished himself as pulpit orator and scholar Mr J Hal Grimes soninlaw of Col Hardin was recently unanimously elected mayor of Tlurrodiburg and is filling tbe position with dignity and eminent satisfaction Strangers woud judge tbe mayor to be about sixteen years of age although twentyfive and at that probably the youngest in Kentucky I am sure said Cut Hardin tbat my soninlaw suffers less from the an noyance of tramps beggars and others wanting assistance than any mayor in the United States When that class enquire at the mayors office and are greeted by Grimes they think they have struck a mischievous ofllce boy and consider the joke on them and leave without further ado One hard old party however who thought be was being made the butt end of a trick perpetrated by a fresh subordinate proceeded to call the mayor down in great fashion but when he disc vered that the joke was really on him after all the old fellow apollglzed elabor Hardin is opposed to mixed schools and has been since fifteen years of age He was then a student of Dr J Lapsley McKee now of Danville in the Male and Female High School of Columbia That was in 1857 when a taacher In country schools who was not rigid and did not paste on the wall a string of strict rules was not permitted to occupy his position a second term Tne girls and boys were not permitted to associate with each othera custom which in many country districts is even yet strictly followed In those days as in these some of the most beautiful young woman in the Blue Grass were daughters of the sturdy farmers surrounding Huston vile One of those was a student at the Columbia Male and Female High School and for convenience her name may be known as Miss Smith Then as now Col Hardin was as all true Kentuckians an admirer of beautiful women and owing to his timidity and tender age and lack of opportunity to communicate verbally he naturally expressed his admiration for the Hustonville belle through gifts and by making what has since been termed goo goo eyes He found that nosegays made of the wild flowers which grew abundantly in the rurroundiog woodlands were about the most highly appreciated gifts and accordingly spent many afternnous gathering the daises and theroses and the wild honeysuckles for the pride of his heartl while his fel low students were digging out mathematics and Latin and Greek He occupied a rear seat in the build ing diagonally opposite the young lady He made it his business to be in his seat before MlsaSmlth arrived and she made It her business to enter the door on the side next to her youthful lover He wore a large oat and hid under It next so his heart the bounteous bnuquets These he slipped to the malden as slje entertllcq was usually

the In structor commanded her to follow with these wordlI Mr Hardin I accept with pleasure the token of your admira tion for me and shall ever cherish tbe sweet memory Thus ended my first love affair
