extract from a letter written by Miss Mattie Taylor who is teaching at Rich mond Ky to her father Dr U L Taylor of this place Yesterday morning about twen ty of our number made a visit to Berea Two wagonettes were en gaged a nice lunch prepared aud we were ready for the trip When we arose in the morning we were somewhat disappointed to find the weather very cloudy but all pre parations having been made for the trip we decided to risk getting wet and started The drive over to Berea was simply fine the dis tance being about fifteen miles The girls were full of spirit and at every station would give our college yell We had decided to visit Slate Lick Springs which is two miles beyond Berea so wo drove there first It is a place which looks very much as Russell Springs use to look except that this place is right in the moun = tains There are several small cottages there which may be rent ed during the Summer m nth9 The water is a very strong sulphur aud was pronounced excellent by those who are fond of it We found a nice table on which to spread the lunch and I am sure each one did full justice to the meal for we were very hun gry After resting for a while we drove back to Berea We first stopped at the residence of Presi dent Frost where we were intro duced to a very nice old lady from some where in the North and who is so charmed with Berea that she makes it her home I believe her name is Mrs Murse She volun teered to show us through the buildings She showed us through the house of the President which is a nice twostory frame with a large double porch in the rear from which one gets a beautiful view of the mountains Next we visited the ladies boardinghall which is a large threestory brick building I am not very good at guessing but suppose it has about 150 rooms We next visited the main school building which is also threestories in height It is a handsome modern structure built of brick with stone trimmings It being Saturday the recitation rooms were vacant We went into the library and were shown through by Miss Smith the librarian who was very pleasant indeed I lieve the library is said to contain 32000 books At any rate it is very fine The place next visited was Science Hall This is not quite so large as the main build ing but pretty Some of this department was closed so we only saw a small portion of it The apparatus here is said to be very extensive To the left of this is a small house which is used as a hospital This is something new at the school and while quite small IS very nice and very well equipped A trained norse is kept constantly in attendance I dont know whether they keep more than one or not The boys dormitory is not far in the rear and is about the size of the one occupied by the girls A large industrial building is being constructedat present I believe they said that all the workmen or at least those making the brick are students at the school We saw very few of the teachers or pupils as most of the teachers were away Last year there were about 000 students in attendance There are not so many at present but a great in crease is expected daring the Win ter term I believe there are said to be seven white pupils to one color ed There were some other build ings but as our time was limited we only visited one more which was the most interesting of all considering the size This is a little log cabin built by a lady from the north Mrs Graham by name She is principal of Home Industries Her house is entire ly furnIshed with homemade articles suohas splitbottom chairs oldtime counterpanes rugs and curtains woven by the people living there and other things too numerous to mention Daring the day the clouds had cleared away the weather w warm and pleasant and the drive home was delightful e WHY HE SUCCEFDED from a sermon on Labor Un ions by Rev Newell Dwight HillisTwenty years ago a poor foreigner landed in New York and began his work He set one ambition before himselfto educate every OLe of his ohldren He determin ed to lose his life to save his child ren j he forsook the saloon the hall where his fellowworkmen con gregated he rose up early and sat up late j to keep his children studying he kept them in the common school and the high school j not content with one Sun day school and church he sent them to two Sunday schools and to every church service His sons climbed to positions of influene and wealth every one of his daughters became teachers in the citys schools One day this foreigner and his wife disappeared from their little house in the tene ment region and went to live on an avenue with a son who had been admitted to the bar This man used his strongest child as a means upon whom to climb upwards The family has passed within twenty years from the bottom rand industrially to the top rand He solved the labor problem by the school house and the church and he solved it in twenty years Suppose he had listened to the labor leader who told his men at the beginning of the strike to buy a gun Suppose he had spent all his Sunday after noons as most of our laboring people are spending theirs in the saloon and the beer garden in idle discussion of their wrongs It would have taken half a dozen generations to have materially changed the condition of that family The republic offers a royal road to success to every workingman And though he be a fool he need not err therein walking along the highway lined with free schools free churches free lecture halls social settle ments The need of the hour is to keep the children instead of taking them out at thirteen to put them in the shop or store The Roman Emperor Marccs Aurelius lived on bread and milk for what could be obtained for 10 cents a day But the laboring man wants treble that for his beer and tobacco and so makes his children wageearners at twelve and dooms them to drudgery the long life through The way to double the wage therefore is to quadruple the intelligence HE AGREED WITH THE SPEAKER During his pastorate In Albany the late Chancellor Upson was presiding at a meeting at which a speaker of wide reputation as an orator and writer delivered an address The two were not acquainted save by reputation The orator had made but little progress when Dr Upsous attention was attracted by the famil- Iar form of the words and the line nf thought The conviction soon forced Itself upan him that he was listening to his own production delivered some years previously in a distant city And to the end the speaker spread out the stolen goods as his own While listening to the orator Dr Upson de cided it would be ungracious for him to expose the piracy and when at the conclusion he bad to comment upon the address he said ho had followed the argument with much interest and found himself In close agreement on the position taken The country papers have many faults they make many blunders and leave undone many good works Yet when YClutoUowthemmonth after month you arc struck with the unanimity with which they stand loyally by their cqmwunitysand the con5t4ncy with which they preach the doctrine cf citizenship and fair play in alh things Ex iE THE MAN WHO DOES THINGS Every institution wants him He is not looking for positions j positions are looking for him He doea not complain he acts Ho accomplishes results and these accomplished results speakmore loudly in his favor than acres of subsidized newspapers What the world wants what the world re wards is the man who does things Discouragement and failures are meaningless things to him j re sults are the substantial things for which he strives and attains There is a settled air of assured success in his manners and nuve meuts There is no trouble in so lecting him from a crowd He can be picked out just as unerringly as his opposite who abides with discouragement and failure and leave a more attractive imprint n the countenance Men who can do things in industrial commer cial and financial life are as scarce as their opposites are plentiful Opportunities are not scarce they are plentiful more plentiful than ever since history was written They await the poor boy who does things without looking at the clock People who are always locking at the Hock never amount to much in anything Men who do things never consult the time to see if they can stop they know it was made for slaves not for virile men who enthusias tically do things Employes who frequently consult the clock will always be employes with no hope of rising The man who does things may in biB absorption for get his meals or his bed but his opposite will be ever ready ahead of time for both or either LEES OPINION OF JO JOHNSTON While in South Carolina the editor of the veteran heard from high author ity the following statement which he has seen in print President Davis was in the habit of having his cabinet dine with him once a week On such occasion in 1864 a guest Sidney Lee a brother of Gen Lee indulged in some serious animad versions of Gen J E Johnston A card was brought to the President who announced that Gen Lee had ridden up tbe Petersburg lines to confer with him and Gen Lee was invited to join the party While tak- Ing a glass of wine tbe guest continued his strictures on Gen Johnston Gen Lee excused himself in order to have an Inteavlew with the President but before leaving the room said in a most impressive manner Gentlemen It Joseph E Johnston is not a general the Confederacy has none The late Gen Geo A Tenholm Secretary of the Treasury was present and beard Gen Lees remark lie repeated it after the war to Gen Elison Capers now Bishop of South Carolina hence tbe unquestioned source of the statement November Confederate Veteran ThE COST OF LIVING Bradstreets index numbers show that the tariffmade trusts are still ad vancing staple prices although food crops were never larger In September 36 prices were lessened and 44 left unchanged The prices of sheep hogs bacon cheese sugar tea potatoes apple quinine and tobacco and 26 more staplfs were Increased It is cstima td that tbe cost of living has been or will be advanced by the trusts fully 10 per cent over that of last year The present Index number of Bradstreet is the highest reached since October 69 Since 1866 the cost of living has been increased fully 40 per cent and the Dlngley high tariff organs are claiming that they have advanced wages proportionately The hollowness of this claim is apparent to any wageearner aud no argument is needed Low prices say the tariff and trust organs mark hard times but the trouble they are their associates in the Ding ley rubbery scheme want higher prices fur pruducts acid low salaries for wage in short have not been ad vanced 40 per cent since 1896 although products have been Wages in other words are lower than they were in 1899 because Dingleyism pn products outpaces them Dull as times were in 1896 the wagecarners were getting higher wages than they do now simply because tbo greed of tariffcreated trusts has advanced prices of articles and Is holding them firmly up despite the great harychts of the presont year Birmingham Age Herald r A a 0 Three shots wer fired at King

weed the other day has caused the ruin of more young men than whiskey morphine and dope habits of all kinds You dont believe It Dont take niy word but go to the young man of twenty five who has smoked clgaretts from his boyhood up and ask him He like I speaks from experience It first robs him of manhood and will power It incapacitates him for business It creates a thirst for drink and to soothe his parched lips and tongue takes to strong drinkwater doesnt have the dcsirea iZ ct It robs him of honor and leads him to gamble It ruins more young men than do these other habits because more of them take to the cigarette habit Another reason is they form the hiblt when they are boys and at the same time when their physical and intellectual powers are developing the most Many lives are blasted at tbe age of twenty while others probably because they natural ly are stronger physically and mental ly last longer but they too will finally succumb Another argument in my favor is Is that business men tolerate It among their employes girls allow their company society makes no dis tinction betw en the moral young man and tbe young man who smokes cigaretts while the young man who drinks is barred from these priviliges 1 would rather see a boy of mine drunk than to see him smoke a cigarette I would rather see a daughter of mine marry a young man who drinks than to marry a cigarette fiend Wby Because the drunkard is abhorred and is coaxed to reform while the cigarette fiend is tolerated aud sees no need of reforming Again it is harder for a young man who has smaked cigarettes ten years to quit than it is for a drunk ard uf twenty hve Scars to quit drink- Ing There is something fascinating and soothing about cigarettes that no one but cigarette smokers know of When you reform a cigarette fiend set it down that you have got more fluence with him than a king has and be will love and respect you always because yon are probably the only one who has taken enough interest in him to seriously want to quit drunkgad gets sympathy and is encouraged to quit but the cigarette fiend has to help himself He is expected to do that although his is thchardest habit to knows I pity the cigarette fiend because I have been one but I am done with cm- POINTED PARAGRAPHS A neglected opportunity never calls may bj bind but the average mother inlaw isnt Money is k ng and at the same time a

Adair and adjoining coun ties to become members of it if they are seeking an education The school needs no comment from us It has been a factor for many years in the training of young men and women for usefulness in life All along it has made a rec ord fr thorough work work that fades not away when the student goes into the business world To day its management is better than for many years and it in doing a work that will redound to the wel faro of its patrons and add laurels to the reputation of its corpa of ablo instructors No loose meth ods are indorsed no easygolong course is pursued It is business business straight through from start to finish The young man or lady who desires to havo a good time to chat and to be chatted to be in today and on the streets tomorrow at a social to night and a bad recitation in the morn ing will not remain long in this institution nor find it pleasant while here Tho student must study must make progress or re turn to the old hearthstone No idlers no rowdies or evaders of honest work in the pursuit of knowledge are wanted While the school desires a large patronage and highly deserves it yet its management does not want it without giving full and complete vaiue We indorse this policy and feel glad that such a course is mapped out as will protect parents who send their children for the purpose of advancement Again the young man or young lady who is seeking an education can not af ford to spend time in a school of doubtful discipline This school is not too exacting in the conduct of its students nor is it oppressive in its requirements in the recita tion rooms its a firm honest steady reign seeking the best re salts for all Its teachers are thoroughly prepared for this arduous work They are willing and anxious to perform their duty In our judgment Southern Kentucky has the best school and no one who desires to enter need not hes itate to enter the M F High School The teachers in this part of the State who desire to brighten up for the rigid examination of next year ought to outer the school at their earliest opportunity Dont send your sons and daughters off to large towns where temp tatious to idle their time away or where vices in various forms surround them when you can get better results here in a town largely free from the tendencies that wreck and rain many young people We like to see merit win We desire to see our school grow but we also feel ant interest in the welfare of the rise i We have just returned from the markets and every department in our house is full up with new and goods

desirable specify lug generation that is paramount to the good of any institution or any individual Knowing that the weal or woe of our country de pends on what the young people of today make of

further steps can be taken by the committee to ward preparing for a primary If the committees action stands it means that many of the candi dates will be unable to pony up1 and will withdraw leaving

before Thanksgiving a number ot the young gentlemen of the city concieved the idea of enter tabuing their young lady friends in a royal manner Mr and Mrs J B Barbee having tendered them the use of

the 17th of December The pur of the meeting is to close a con with the people of this section and to select thelocation for the school buildings This is the most Important gathering in which the people of this section have ever had an interest If an agreement is reached and the school secured it means that much has been gained for Southern Kentucky This school is worth too much to this entire country for the people to allow it to fall It has not yet been secured and may never be We have not se cured the full amount required from us and this should be done prior to this meeting We ought to be in shape to close a contract and the only hinder ante Is the lack of a few hundred meeting should be the largest gathering of the citizens of this county that ever assembled for any purpose It means more for the county and more for this part of the State than any move yet made We trust that the best citizens of this entire section will be here on that and show the Board undisputed of our desire to secure the school and to patronize it after it has been established Every body interested in education in bettering our country morally and intellectually should remember the date of this meeting and make it a point to be here Dont stay away and trust for others to come Drop your work for that day and attend this meeting Tell your neighbors and ask them to come MAD DOG LastSaturday

rained much of the time during the progress of the meeting the church was wellfilled each evening Dr Worrell Is a very able divine a pleasant speaker a sound reasoner His discourse last Sunday night was upon the parable of the rich man and Lazarus He said that he was not sure it was a parable and what he got out of the story made it very clear that the rich man spoken of was much better than the ordinary run of men that he did not refuse Lazarus the crumbs that fell from his table that such a statement was unreasonable The only trouble with the rich man was that he had not truly accepted Christ though- in all probability he was a member of tbe Jewish church In presenting this story the speaker grew eloquent and the closest attention was given There were no additions to the church
