informed was not made on account of Dr Staples failing to do business for he had a fine practice and was constantly a busy man but his taste for strictly city practice and the extra inducement held out to him in wideawake Birmingham caused the change It is regretted by his many friends that he has decided to leave but their good wishes for his suc cess accompany him Mrs Staples is a Southern

some of our farm ers who killed hogs last week But few have been butchered and it is safe to say that the greater number of swine will not quit corn until after thanksgiving and some settled cold weather is at hand Afew years ago nearly every farmer in this country had trouble to save their pork and in many instances the hams were lost It was quite common then to hear people say I have lost all my joints and some would put it my jints all spiled To save your joints dont be in a hurry to save your corn Last Sunday afternoon Mr Jo Coffey Sr was ridingat a rather lively gait to escape a

1905 i II Political Rescue BY FARAWAY MOSES Dunkleheimer has been deeply interested in politics lately He l organized a political club and elected himself its president and treasurer and secretary and adviser bearing the honored name of His Royal Nibs and Outside Guard of the Boodle The club meets at the cobbler shop every time the candidates feel like in terviewing the club and are willing to furnish a keg of beer and a few patriotic precepts with promises of more later on The cobbler generally delivers the speech of welcome and pronoun ces the benediction at the cOn- clusion of the conference providing he is sober enough to re member a choice selection of big words and quotations from writers who never livedon earth since the big flood Just before the election the candidates were thicker than June bugs in July and the club held nightly sessions to accommo date the raibts who were so themselveswilling and drag the accompanying emol uments One candidate for a county office made a weekly trip to the club rooms and supplied liquid refreshments each night in order to draw out all our forces ann count them over He would count them in the beginning while they were all able tot stand up in a row and count them again after some of the most patriotic were laid out in a deep beery slumber By and by he discovered that his opponent was a guest at our club on nights h when he was elsewhere building political fences and he began to lose confidence in the cobbler Why cobbler he said one night this uncertainty of the future is painful I cant bet on your blub at all One night they are drinking my Republican beer and shouting for Teddy the Trust Smasher and the G 0 P and the very next night they are all drinking Democratic beer and shouting for the income tax and government ownership of rail roads I must know where you stand This uncertainty is too painful and leaves me always in a gob of doubt Dot was because you was no philosopher or soom poets re plied the cobbler Uncertainty and doubtfulling was der shpice of life to der men dot has senti mentaling in his octopus und kin dream soom political contamina tions mit ramified nostalgia ac cordingly I dond see how I could liff on try facts uud deat sure certainties by jimmineddie But when I was realizationing dot I dond know whichefer where I cooms from und how soomefer I was going back again it leafs me in some dark holes dot was illuminated mit opaque mys terise so tick dot you caint knock daylight oud of a lantern mit a club My dear man continued Dunkleheimer as he placed one arm around the candidate and

in which I try to peep down the long and deep and dark avenue lead ing out into eternity and find myself lost in a labrynth of soul hunger and pathos and awed melancholy too deep and beauti ful for tears and too majestic and inspiring for even a heart ache or a regret But dod blast it men IJdont want the beautiful andjjsoulin spiring ecstacy of opaque doubt If I furnish a keg of beer twice week I want to be Positive Hof the results Is this club for me all the time or only when the keg is on tap demanded the candidate JiHow was she demanded the cobbler as he glanced over the crowd Was we for

ceremony the cobbler and Jigger bobwaltzed to the music of an accordion in the professional hands of Careadam Hooter and Candidate Smucker went back to the city with his hopes revived and his purse aching with empti ness as it were How much did you borry from Smucker Jiggerbob whis bered in Hooters ear and that unblushing patriot held up both hands and wiggled the fingers andremarked To pay my dues to the church and chip into the foreign fund 10 plunks What church do you belong to demanded Jiggerbob Not any jist yit but I want to be prepared for the change when she does take place How much did you borry Jigger bob Only five dollars for the fund to puttin ub toom stuns to grand mothers grave But he promis ed to chip in five more to the fund for buyin Mrs Jiggerbob a mess of store teeth and mebby a extra five towards a sinkin fund to pay for gittin my appen dix cut off if that pain shud comeback and become chronic But candidate Smucker could not afford to come back again The boys had drained him too se verely on this sixth visit But two other candidates for the same office and belonging to two different political parties visited the club and set up the beer and received the shouts and promises of the club the last one coming on the night previous to the elec tion and furnished two kegs of beer and loaned 20 to the tomb stone and appendix funds and secured majority of the votes Dot was according to der scrip tures argued the cobbler Der first shall be lasting und der last shall be firshlings accord ingly GootGott was blowing der shorn winds to der temperance lamb He dot

a total of 40000 in a lifetime The average day laborer gets 150 a day 300 days in a year or 450 a year In forty years he earns 18000 The difference or 22000 equals the value of an education To acquire this earning capacity requires twelve years at schools of 180 days each or 2160 days Divide 22000 by 2160 and it is found that each dayjat school is worth a little more than 10 to the pupilSe

waste Within the last four centuries the people of Spain have owned as much silver and gold as all the other nations of Europe put together yet at the present time poor indeed is the people who have less than they The nation which has produced more of the raw material and manufactured from it more fine linen than all contem porary nations is today the most rag ged and squalid in Christendom Horace Mann The blind see the deaf hear the lame walk is the best illustration of this subject by the master hand No page of history will ever shine so bright that this diamond will not lend its laster All are blind to that which they can not see deaf to what they cannot hear and lame to all they cannot attain The lily comes to the pink of perfection by using for its growth every drop of dew every breath of air and every shaft of light that comes It is an ex ample of success in its line The splen dor and glory of Solomon could not match it There is as much life in a dark tangled chaotic jungle as there is in a modern city The life in the jungle is blind deaf lame in the city it sees hears moves The same in kind but different in degreeISeeing hearing walking is life more abundantly Death is the cut ting of every wire that communicates with the central office of life One dim eye dull ear lame foot are just so many wires down When they are all down the clod foils with a dull thud upon the coffin lid True education is the work of true educators They teach how to make it life to livenot how to turn stones into bread Colleges and universities may crumble into dust but such men shall live forever cc These shall resist the empireof decay When time is oer and worlds have passed away Cold in the dust the perished heart may lie But that which warmed it once can never die- There are in Kentucky today a thousand schools without teachers there are thousands of schools being taught by untrained teachers and there are hundreds of thousands of children growing up in ignorance and vice with out attending any school whatever The crying need of our state today is a sufficient corps of Normally Trained teachers At present almost any per son of good moral character and a cer tificate may be put in charge of the training of the children although he wonld not be considered competent to train a birddog or a colt To train these valuable animals requires special training and a practical knowledge of their nature and characteristics as well as of the methods best adapted to their development and draining Without this knowledge upon the part of the trainer a valuable dog or colt may be ruined Of course the same thing may happen to the child in the hands of an untrained teacher but it must be re membered that there is a vast differ ence between a fine English Pointer or a Thoroughbred Kentucky Roadster and a mere child How long will the pride of Ken tuckians remain dormant in the matter of Education How long will we allow the mass of our growing citizens to re main deaf dumb and blind to the best there is in life How long will we withhold the best educational advan tages from the country people just be cause trained teachers cost more than untrained teachers

members present and duly appreciated by those of other denominations No undue reference or criticism of others was indulged in but the plain teachings and doctrines held and practiced by the Baptists

and practical purposes itI was in reality justly entitled to such but believing that there would be an awakening and a stirring later 01wepatiently awaited results In speaking to one of its high privates last week he remarked Notwithstanding we have had one of the best seasons fo worstejx ever raised It was planted early wasry this happened I am unable to say but it must be due to the lack of

county is fast leaving the old beaten paths and coming to the front and its ad vancements make one feel proud for though we may leave the old home and find a new one more re sourceful and pleasant in many respects yet the love of home never takes its flight nor is it dimmed by the hand of time Boyhood days are the happiest the old home the best and the love of youth the strongest and most enduring In the active business life in the wandesings of those whose positions are shifting and especially in the soldiers camp crowded with many duties it is impossible to forget the old home and friends and likewise a love for their advancement My company is now stationed on the coast just outside the Golden Gate on a small point called Point Bsonita a new coast artillery post We are guarding the

fifteen thousand inhabi tants while every basis of calcu lation ordinarily used would give it eighteen thousand or more It is the largest city in Texas north of Dallas and at the same time one of the youngest The larger number of our people come from the North and East These people have attained a wide reputa tation for push and public spirit Because of this Denison is known as the city that does

for the last five years it has been an uncommon sight to see a yoke of oxen pullin- a wagon into Columbia Bu things change and since price of horses is fairly good an and cattle gone below grazing
