teacher and divine Mr Baker was a pupil under Mr Mc Kee during the taughtrIn Columbia On the 3d of July 1855 the first meeting of the board of trustees of the Columbia Male and Female High School was heldJudge T T Alexan der was itsUhainnan and Guy room asEBrarnletteTiinoleou Cravens Dr S B Field Col Robert Miller Josiah Harris and others were Its members John Lapsle McKee a graduate of Center College and recently from the Princeton Theological Seminary was selected by Transylvania Presbytery as principal and entered upon his work that year aided by an able corps of teachers In connection with ithe had the pastorate of the Presbyterian church here and at Ebeneezer Green county He was the first principal of the school and these churches were his first pastoral charge It was during his service here and largely through his influence that this Jlldlug was erected for the wor ship of God But little time was required to show the wisdom of his selection He threw the powers of his young manhood into the work and as a result the church took on new life and the school build ing was filled with students They came from Boyle Mercer Garrard Lincoln Casey Washington Marion Taylor Green Hart Barren Met calfe Cumberland Clinton Russell Wayne and some from other States and from other counties in this State The houses of the town and g t the country near town were taxed to their capacity to furnish homes for the young people who came here to be ed Columbia a prestige asan educational point that has never been lost although nearly a half century has elapsed since he removed from this communityIt the pulpit of this church that he first exhibited the powers that established his reputation as one of the great preachers of the age It was herein connection with this church and school that he commenced the ac tive career as a teacher and a minister of the gospel which has been so signal Jy blessed in good to thousands of his fellowmen It is very appropriate therefore that at this place within these walls where his eloquent voice has been so often heardand as a part of the closing exercises of the school which he assisted in founding this Memorial service should be held Dr McKee survived all of the mem bers of the Board of Trustees who were associated withjiim iu the establish mel of this school The officers of his church have long sincepassedover the river and entered into the rest of the othershore Of the faculty none I believe re main His brother Col Sam McKee fell at the head of his regiment in the battle of Stone River Alexander Hen ry as a soldier of the cross gave up his life In tar off India one and another in the march of time dropped out from the ranks Of thAstudents who met with him on his first day iu the old Chapel the great majority have passed from the activities of this life to those of the life beyond God for good and wise purposes spar ed the life of the great and good man whose virtues we commemorate to nTghtand permitted him to live his three score and ton and five years Ilia years from early manhood were full ot activity and usefulness to his fellow men As a teacher and as a preacher he had but few equals Iu the Mihoj loom be gave mturestto the dryest and most abstruse subjects He had the faculty of drawing out the best that was in his pupils He held before them high Ideas and stimulated them to strive to reach them His appeal was to the manliness of the boy and his appeals were seldom in vain It was a callous nature that did not re spond under his generous promptings- In addition to the zeal and enthusi asm which he brought to his work and the eloquence With which he presented his views he manllested and felt a warm personal interest in all the youths tinder bis care He loved them an jsought todu them good and they knew it It is not strange that he was loved and honored by them 1 have never known a young man or Boy tb be associated with Dr McKee fii who did nQt hold him In the highest esteem He exercised a wonderful influence over young people both from the pul pit and the professors chair He won their attention and reached their hearts as but few men could Ills preaching was of the highest or derand popular with all classes learned or unlearned He was a logi cian and an orator His oratory was free from all affectation or mannerism The truths he spoke came from his own great mind and heart and went directly to the hearts of his hearers and yet presented so simply and so clearly that a child could understand 1 do not believe I speak with extrav agance of praise when I say he was iu my judgment one of the greatest awl most useful men Kentucky has pro can measure the iulluence of such a life Who can tell of the springs of action put ia motion by his teaching and preaching here and at Keokuk and Louisville Danville and other places and by his twenty five years of connection with youug men as vice president of Centre College How the circle of his influence widens as we contemplate itwidens with every life which he touched and made better un til it is as measureless as eternity Dr McKee would have been a great man in any profession in life Had he studied law he would have made a great lawyer or judge Had he enter ed politics he would have ranked high as a statesman Ambition as he often told me called him in this direction but there was another voice more potent than this which he heeded the voice ot duty He chose rather to fol low in the footsteps of the meek and lowly Nazarene And so his life was spent in service for his fellowmen and a noble service it was If success is measured by usefulness his life was preeminently successful The following resolution was then adopted by a rising vote of the congregation Dr John L McKee was one of the founders and the first principal of the Columbia M F High School For many years and until very re cently he was a member of the board of trustees At all times he was the true and warm friend of the school Resolved That we have heard with profound sorrow of his death We tender his widow and the other members of his family car sympathy In their sad bereavement Editorial Correspondence PROM ST PAUL VIRGINIA While a majority of the readers of the News are not interested or ac quainted in this section and while the people on the sunny side of old Ken tuck are not interested in mining or manufacturing yet I feel that a short letter setting forth the conditions here would not be an imposition on them but to the contrary would be appreciated though it may not be either In structive or amusing- I arrived here June the 1st and con sequently my acquaintance is rather limited though passing through Wise county one of the richest counties in this State in mineral wealth I have a fair idea of the operations of the differ ent comprnies interested in this section My first stop was at Big Stone Gap the place where thousands of hard earned dollars were sunk in craw fish holes in 1889 and 00 the place where great fortunes seemed to be the heritage of everyactive man andwhere in reality many of us returned to our former homes with empty purses and a mortgage on our future Since the hard days of the panic Big Stone Gap has had a steady growth in business and today it is a good business point though its population is only 2000 Nine mites north of Big Stone at Siobcga the Va Coal Iron Com pay has hundreds of men employed mining coal and waking coke and still nearer other companies are building hundreds of coke ovens My next stop was at Nortonj the terminus of the L N and N W Railways Within a few miles of Nor ton thousands of men are employed in mining coalmakinK coke and working the valuable timber found in the rich gorges df the momftaihs East of Norton a few miles is Coeburn ott the- N W where hundreds of coke ovens ire la blast all the while Ten years ago not an oven was in Wise county today several tit4usanriare is blast and hundreds under course of con struction Only a few years ago and this county was considered almost worthiest bUtslhde the buildlngof the h- c l t I lgi railroads and the coming of the capi talivH the conditions have changed and Wise county takes a position in the front Inp oInt of productive place St Paul is in the treme eastern and southern part of the county on the N W Road and like other places in boom days went up then down It was at this point that the proposed Charleston Cincin nati and Chicago R R was to cross the N W and by reason of the great railroad advantges a bright future was pictured On the south side of the rIver the city of Minneapolis was laid off and on the north side St Paul was shown on the blue prints The three Cs failed Minneapolis dial and St Paul is not so large as the Minnesota City of the same name This city is in the limestone belt of Virginia which extends far into t State eastward and where large num bers of fine short horns may be seen feeding on the blue grass hills The divide between the mineral and the grazing lands being about two miles north of this place puts St Paul in touch with the great activity of the one and the quiet peaceful pursuits of the agricuIturals on the other Just above this point li miles a new line of railroad is being built into some of the best coal property in this section and within a few months two or three large companies will be putting coal on the market Probably the lest coal lands in Virginia are in Dickinson county north of this section and which will soon be developed as three different lines of road arc now build ing into it from different directions The developments in South west Va are marvelous and yet her untold wealth is only In budhood In this section there is room for the man of money and an anvcstment in the coal lends now rapidly advancing will prove highly profitable No one need fear that the writer will join the speculative forces of this section for be is without the necessary ingredients to go against the odds My mission in this section is of a different nature though it is my desire to be with the progressive forcer wherever found I can say for the benefit of the wheat growers of Kentucky that the crop will be almost a total failure in this state and the farmer who makes wheat this year will doubtless get a good price C S HARms TAKE NOTICE Oar proposition to send the News three months for 10 cents

who predicted that 1002 would be a year of disasters were correct They have been in the habit of utterinn these prophecies year after year without result but this year they have been verified though but five months have passed If one only prophesies patiently and persistently he will assuredly be right as the al manac in the country in which had the legend About this time expectraln Nature has not been so busy with her forces of devastation fur many years past as she has been during the first five months of the present year Vol canic eruptions and earthquakes have destroyed 48450 lives storms 704 tor- nadoesj 415 cyclones 220 hoods 233 avalanches 258 tidal vaves103 snow slides 30 and water spouts 12 a total of 50505 lives destroyed by natures el emental disturbances If to this total were added the lives lost by the agencies over which man has more or less control such as fires mine disasters explosions railroad accidents and vessel wrecksIt would be increased to over 60000 and this takes no account of individual lives lost in this country which would bring the grand total up to about 100000 lives lost in the short period of five months In the presence of these great natur al convulsions man is powerless and probably always will be As to the disasters occasioned by human Ignorance or carelessiess or neglect the desixiir of the situation is that the catastrophe of today
