product and farmers devote little to any other crops When cotton is a failure business is so governed and when cotton hits and prices are good then bus ness flourshes and times are good generally The

finish up most artistically in their natural stateThe advantages are many here the only disadvantages being the swampy sections and the wet seasons whichtgive the whole State the name of being one

members of the Executive Committee of the Educational Improvement commission of Kentucky held an im portant meeting at the Capitol Hotel in Frankfort Saturday De cember 16th The meeting last ed all day and a definite plan of campaign was determined upon Among other things which form part of the plans of the Commission is an effort to determine as far as possible the will of the leading citizens of the state in regard to the State Normal Scool proposition To this end the Commission has mailed out 8000 blank petitions to the 8000 white school teachers ask ing that the people be interviewed Over 7000 of the 8000 teachers have already placed themselves on record many times heretofore in the matter The attitude of the press is es pecially gratifying Outofa lengthy list of editorials last week there was only one that was not heatily in favor of State Normals There was an article in a county paper last week by one who his An ExTeachsigned name 1 Givealprospective training in an uptodate

possiply the great est function of a State Normal I S hool to give such training to its student teachers and to fill them to overflowing with an in spiration that will enable them to meet the adverse conditions in the country and transform them It was State Supt 0 B Martin of South Carolina who said One intelligent live and enthusiastic teacher can revolu tionize a whole township and build a mounment that will endure Such a teacher will make conditions he will create environ ments he will command a salary In the wake of intelligent efforts will follow good school houses splendid equipment beautiful school grounds local taxation longer terms larger salaries and and a more healthful public sentiment in favor of better educa tion and a higher citizenship Such a teacher will practially solve the problem of compulsory t educationheviH draw the children to him and secure the cooperation of the patrons Again this ExTeacher seems to infer that the child in the country district is not entitled to a thoroughly trained teacher Why not There is no reason reIinshall offer as good facilities as are to be found in town or city With such schools the country would be an ideal place for the education of men ofltimecountry will move to the towns and cities and leave in our rural districts only the poorest peasant population too ignorant to know the value and the blessing of an education and too indifferent to care to secure it for their off springs Now is the time for all thouht ful people to meditate solemnly and earnestly The Legislature I will be in session next winter reyoucontent to know that Kentucky drags behind all the others States and Territories in this matter Are you willing to longer deny to the country boys and girls the privilege of a train ed teacher Are you satisfied to know that hundreds of thousands of good honest country folks are unf avorbly inclined toward edu cation for the simple reason that they nave nfcvcr ii tit trained leader but in place thereof have generally had unskilled teachers and miserably poor schools Do you not believe it isa part of patriotisn to change these conditions If you do then it is your duty to be up and

will manage Old Bill or keep old Nancy in the traces while the trackless car speeds along on the public highway They say that it will scare everything off of the pike and to hear some talk it will be

Hatcherson W S Pick ett W J Bottom A N Petty began its labors in tracing the valuation of the assessable property in this county In some instances the assessment was lowered while in a great many con siderable advances were made All parties whose interests are affected are notified to appear and show reasons if they have any why the valuation should not be raised and they have been obeying the summons almost to a man Just what the entire increase in the valuation over that of the Assessors books will show can nofrbe given but it issafe to say that it will reach beyond the 100 000 mark So far as we nave heard just about the usual complaints are being made by those whose holdings are climbing upward It is our judgment that the board is doing its duty and thatit will do it perfectly is not a proposition for the judgments of men differ and consequently some mistakes will be made The biggest mistake heretofore made according to our views is that to many have been

there are 600000 children from six to sixteen years of age working in the cotton mills alone They have little holiday even at thisI season and the working twelve hours in most of the states Many of these little ones must work at night The National Child Labor Committee organized a little over a year ago has already succeeded- in securing laws for the better protection of the toiling children in twelve of the states Our Southern States are behind the others in this humane legislation Some of them have no laws at all and no enforcement of the laws they have In the meantime the very stength and vigor of our pure AngloSaxon stock is being sap ped by this system of working of their helpessness to be delivered from this slavery The National Committee on which there are twelve prominent Southern men has established a Southern office in Atlanta with a Southern man in charge Funds are needed for the legitimate expenses of the legislative campaigns now in prospect Every dollar given by Southern people will be expended to protect the little children of the South from the fearful consequences of too early toil In the name of Him who was born a little child and who loved the little childdren

Pulp Plate That Banishes Indiges lion Forever Bangor MeTlLere is hope The dreaded indigestion that lurks in the famous Yankee pie is now averted by the patent woodpulp pie plate which is being turned out at rate of 300000 a day for onefifth of a cent apiece by a pulp mill in Shawmut village The Yankee love of pie is only held in heck by the Yankee caution against Indigestion caused by the bottom crust being heavy from the lard and other fats which are baked into the pie and have no chance of escape The tin pie plate which has hith erto served as the cooking utensil for the pie has always allowed a greater or less accumulation of this indigest ible material at the bottom of the pie A genius from the Vermont pie belt where they have pie three times a day conceived the idea of a porous pie plate which would absorb the fatty substances of the lard when the pie was baked He experimented with various substances and finally hit on upcintoracy He rolled out a pie plate of woodpulp let it harden and baked a pie on it Result no fatty under completeiu1munity limited pie diet He took his scheme to the big pulp platefnonIndigestion tient market WENT FOR YEARS UNSHORN Death of California

However English Scien fist Declares Tremendous Force Is at Work London The prodigality with which e sun dispenses heat and the possi lities which arise from this prodigal y have formed the subect of an address delivered by the greatastronomer Sir nightIthe opera on that as gave out heat the suns body must get- mallers What the sun would become In e future he could not say but if one uld go to the sun with a measure he would find that it had shrunk 16 ch in 24 hours Ten million years ago the sun was nearly a million times larger than at present and the simple principle that redhot poker isa trifle larger than when cold must also apply to the sun The most Important question regard g the sun he said is the manner in which its heat is kept up Supposing every particle of coal were taken from he earth and poured intothe sun how long would it keep that orb going It Is a scientific truththe lecturer de clared that the entire coal supply of Lith 3eheat for more than the ten thousand part of a single moment of time This prodigality of heat connot be ept up by combustion there must be some tremendous force of eneiey Taat Is however an idea which is assuming g a iiiveskept up The sun it was said by the mere fact of attraction of its particles gives us as much heat as could begot from burning 8000 globes of coal When this calcula tion is worked out and it is remembered lhallt is not only to the earth that the sun gives heat it shows that the sun might be kept going for 24000000 years A suggestion was made that the ex ecutlon of the suns energy has been due O radium If radium was in the sun as t was in the bulk of earth then Instead f a paltry 24000000 years of life al lowed to the sun it would be 1000000000 years GAS TO PROPEL VESSELS Day of Steamship Is Believed to Be Passing
