This ViI t nity Tuesday and Wednes day Evenings LasLj The entertainment at the Presbyterian Church last Tuesday and Wednesday evenings were all that the most enthu Jsiastic friends of the MWand FHigh School could have Expected or desired On Tuesday evening the leading feature was an elocution contest by a class of young Misses for a gold medal given byMr J O Russell of this city and the music was rendered by Miss Hughes in a most entertaining manner To d justice to each contestant would require too much space and would savor too much of boquet pitching The fact is that no class of the same age ever apK peared before an audience in this city with as as few defects and as many meritorious points Each and everyone seemed to go to the bottom of their subject and unroll its beauties to a large and appreciative audience While only one could win the prize and while Miss Mary Miller was the win tner yet the other young ladies should feel that they made a great strike in winning the merited applause of such1 an intelligent audience Miss Marii Miller can likewise congratulate her self as well as enjoy the honor which the medal bears and which was won i Vi one of the hardest and closest contests of merit and talent ever waged in an elocution contest in this town The medal was awarded by Mr Gordon Montgomery in a most entertaining mannerOn evening the exercise s consisted of music by Miss Carey Hughes and Readings by Miss Taylor and from beginning to close was high ly appreciated by the many present No critic could pick a flaw in Miss Tay lors Readings for where humor pa thos or sublime sentiment was inti mated she brought it out in living form and beauty The many manifestations- of approval and appreciation by the largeaudience is smfficient guarantee of the true esteem for Miss Taylor as an elocutionist and teacher The music rendered by Miss Hughes was clas sicaland measured up to the highest and fondest hopes of her many friends who have been watching her rapid advancement with great interest The many pieces of difficult composition requiring considerable time to render thoroughly convinced the many who were fortunate enough to hear her that she is a skillful pianist with butt few equals Thursday evening Prof Ohlenmnacher gave a grand concert which was highly appreciated by many lovers of high class music At intervals during the evening Misses Taylor and Rowe favored the audience with Readings v DONT SHIP Your laundry work away The Co lumbia Steam Laundry has reopened under the management of O A Bar nett Mr Barnett has had eleven years

utmost capacity and when the speaker went to the stand he was given an ovation Judge H C Baker in a few well chosen words introduced young Epper son and for twenty minutes the speaker entertained his hearers with his sub ject matter labor and capital Mr Epperson is only nineteen years of age but he delivered oratorically a most captivating and logical speech and since its rendition many complimentsI have been paid the young ambitious and has entered upon a life of usefulness determined to make his mark for good in the world There is lan old adage There is room at the top and young

last issue an article from our old friend and townsman J CYates of Bradfords vflle in which he manifests much interest in the welfare of this community touching a business proposition now on for action all of which our people have read and still after all headstrong and determined we have decided to move out of the old beaten paths and keep with the spirit of the times and whether Grmdyville and this fertile section will meetwith failure remains to be proven In all her past the white flag has never been hoisted and year b year Iter conditions have improved I think I am justifiable in stating that failure Notjae we going to establish a bank bntaJre are other things in the indus trial Jrldthat will be brought out in the D ar future The next step in which here is union of sentiment and action is the putting in of water works We leave ample water as good as earth affords and we are going to put it un der control The spring on the old Creel Yates farm will supply the water while gpsoline engine will pump it to a reservoir or stand pipe on top of the hill back of the mill and from that point at will be distributed with all the forcethecessary to fight fire or for any other j purpose There is some talk and I hope to see it materialize of putting in an electric light plant We have the power and can afford to meet theexpenses for the convenience it would give The fact is after we get our waterworks I fully believe that we can organize and put in a small ice plant It is the opinion of a number of our best citizens that a plant of this kind would pay here Milltown Co lumbia and a number of other places would buy our surplus and it need not be surprising to hear of such a step in then ar future As an individual I very much appreciate the interest manifested in our section by our old friend and it affords me pleasure to invite him back th the old home to share in the growth and business expansion that Gradyville is now entering G T F A Kentucky colony was

knows that a miss is as good as a mile and Illinois Republi cans are beginning now to know that they missed it by a mile at least in not carrying all twenty five of the congressional districts of the State in 1904 instead of letting Congressman Henry T Rainey of the Twentieth Dis trict get in as the lone Democrat in the Illinois delegation Mr Rainey has weighted some good leverage in the Democrate heaveto to lift the Republican lid from Western river improve ments but it is as an echo of Illinoiss demands in the reciprocity convention that Raineys vioce in the House is least me lodious to Illinois machine Re publicansIn reciprocity convention both the Illinois Senators spoke oothingly of tariff reform but they and every one of the twenty four Republican members of the House from Illinois have been dumb on the subject ever since the session openec But Mr Rainey has not allow ed standpatters to forget that tariff reform is a live issue this year and he has lucidly shown Illinois voters who cultivate the virtue of punctuality how they are mulcted in the purchase of timepieces by the highly protect ed Watch Trust Illinois growers of unprotected wheat hogs and cattle may ex pect from him something more about the way their foreign mar kets are sacrificed to the inter ests of the Dingleyites who in addition make them pay tribute on their shirts their shoes their coats their blankets the pots and pans in which their meals are cooked the implements with which their crops are planted and the harvesting machinery with wich they are gathered Illinois farmers are great stick lers for fair taxes Before this years campaign is done they are likely to have from Mr Rainey and from many other sources itemizedstatements of the rob ber taxes they pay every time they put hand into pocket to buy anything that isnt otherwise taxed by the internal revenue lawsSt Louis Repulic THE CHEERFUL MAN The cheerful man is preemi nently a useful man The cheerful man does not cramp his mind and take half view of men and things The cheerful man knows that there is much misery but that misery need not be the rule of life The cheerful man sees that everywhere the good out balances the bad and that every evil has its compensating balm A habit of cheerfulness en ables one to transmute apparent misfortune into real blessings He who has formed a habit of looking at the bright happy side of things has a great advantage over the chronic dyspeptic who sees no good in anything The cheerful mans thought sculptures his face into beauty ih1 t J1i rh I J l k C and touches his manner with graceIt Lincolns cheerfulness and sense of humor that enabled him to stand up under the terri ble load of the Civil War If we are cheerful and content ed all nature smiles with us the air is balmier the sky clearer the earth has a brighter green the trees have a richer foliage the flowers are more fragrant the birds sing more sweetly and the sun moon and stars are more beautiful All good thought and good ac tion claim a natural alliance with good cheer It is the normal at mosphere of our being Highminded cheerfulness is found in great souls selfpoised and confident in their own heav enaided powers A MIGHTY STRUGGLE The forces of good and evil are continuing their strenuous fight for supremacy and every where the world over and es pecially so in our own country the fight is daily increasing in severity President Roosevelt is following the good example set by Gov Folk of Mo and Mayor Weavor of Philadelphia and is pushing his fight for railroad and trust regulation He is now en gaged against the Standard Oil Company the greatest monopoly of modern or ancient times and this together with his struggles against the monster railroad cor porations keeps him hustling His worst enemy in the fight is the United States Senate who opposed him bitterly in every measure undertaken for the public weal but some of the leading daily journals and weekly and monthly magazines of great in fluence are now leading their powerful aid against the sena torial hirelings of the trusts and some are showing signs of weakening under the steadly fire of the 13th inch editorial guns The good will undoubtly finally pre vail because a higher authority than any human agency has de creed it I would rather be a barefoot ed boy with cheeks of tan and heart of joy than to be a million aire

JAfllESTOUW rY AiL hh L2 I wt m I THE COLOR QUESTION RISES The color question is always bobbing up but prehaps few an ticipated that it would come betfore the General Assembly which meets this weeks at Des Moines la It is what is properly known as the Northern General Assem bly though that is not its official name Heretofore it has got along all right with the colored brother but there is a prospect now that he may be the subject of some controversy The proposed absorption of the Cumberland Presbyterian church brings with it certain impossi bilities That church has its membership chiefly in the South and West It has therefore been deemed expedient to permit the formation of separate negro presbyteries and synods but the General Assembly is common to all But the hotel proprietors in Des Moines hav decided that they will not enter tain a colored man even if heus a commissioner to the General Assembly The General Assembly is not responsible for that but it raises a troublesome question which it will be hard tokeep out Many of the commissioners hold their meetings in the hotels and these often include informal dinners From these according to the order the negroes will be excluded and there is much apprehension as to what will be done about it This is one of the last places where one might have that the color line would b drawn in the North The General Assembly is not to blame for it but the question what it will do about it if anything has degree of interest which cannot entirely be separated from th proposed consolidation of two churches Courier Journal It may be a source ofeasatisfaction to some people to read that Mr John Rockefeller r has made one of his princely donations to some charitable o religious institution but the fellow who is running a gasolin- nginee or the one who uses large quantity of coal oilshud ders and grows faint at heart when he learns that Mr Rocke feller has decided to let out a million to some of his beneficiaries for he knows full well that there is to be a rise in the price of gasoline and coal oil in conse quence The price of gasoline has now reached the point where it is almost impossible to run gasoline engines profitably arid the price is going higher There is no excuse for it and the only reason such things can exist is that Rockefeller has the power to rob the people and is doing hrough t violation of law and through dishonesty Larue Her old BRYAN ON COUNTRY EDITORSj The Washington Post has fallen into the bad habit set by other metropolitan newspapers and is just now engaged in reprint ing extracts from country papers says The Commoner Mr Barans paper This is done for the pur pose of having fun with the country editors by copying what metropolitans too often look up i r 1 on as a sample of country Journalism We ventue the assertion that the daily papers print more of what they are pleased to call rot the country papers do If the country papers devote six or eight items to one family the city journalists copy itwith great glee and chuckle over the humor of it all And yet the metropolitan papers recently printed more insufferable rot about one or two particular families than a hundredcountry newspapers could pssibly print in a year The metropolitan papers take themselves to seriously They seem inclined to the belief that they areHit when the fact is they wield compapatively little influence as compared with the country weeklies And they are by no means free from the faults they so joyfully point out in their country contemporaries URZe The American people have long admired Carl Schurz but they have never loved him In war he was a faithful sol dier no doubt but he was neither a great General nor a great lead er There were times when the in fluence of Carl Schurz was potent and it was always an influence for the good even when it was merely the voice of one crying in wildernessMr a liberal Re preparingeway for the movement which culminated the nomination o Horace Greely witah Hays against Tilden and became cabineteIn civil life he began as a revolutionist and ended as a carping Phalosto p personal ele ment out of all his equations In the contest for sound clearness and convincing power He eateneStatesaHe was a believer in free trade as John Sherman was at one tam and as Beecher and David A Wells were always It is not possible to follow the checkered career of Mr Schurz without a handbook of politics for he wore his party uniform so loosely that he often dropped it altogether Mr Schurzs intellectual powers always commanded respect and they may for a time keep his name from oblivion The Senate was his best forum Could he have remained there as Allison has done he would have left a deeper mark than Allison will do on our political history In England it would not have been dif ficult for Schurz to have kept his footing in public life in America the independent thinker can hope only to influence others and to act to their actions

LindsayWilson closing exercises were attended by large and enthusiastic audiences and when the curtain dropped on last Mondays exercises it could be truthfully stated that itsent more students home for a short vaca tion than any similar institution in Southern Kentucky From start to finish the programs were rendered in the most acceptable manner receiving the hearty applause of the many who were present to enjoy intellectual treatsThe exercises began last Fri day evening and consisted of one of the most refreshing programs ever witnessed in the closing of a school in this part of the coun try It was rendered by Miss Duncan and Miss Penlands class es and so pleased the many pres ent as to elicit he most enthus iastic applause On Saturday afternoon the Junior pupils of Miss Duncans class assisted by the Juniors of Miss Penland and Wilmores classes rendered a program in almost a perfect man ner The recitations were evidence of the most thorough and competent training and to say that those who entertained in that manner brought out the full force of the writers meaning would only be stating a fact wit nessed by a crowded house The music was well up to the highest point of expectation and the manner in which the many difficult numbers were rendered speaks more for the teachers than any words of ours could portray On Saturday evening the pro gramme consisted of recitations and classical music and was high ly interesting throughout- On Sunday the Baccalaureate sermon was preached in the Methodist church by Rev SM Miller mention of which is made in an other column The closing exercises on Monday forenoon consisted of music and an essay by Miss Rosa Mc Neillon The Curse of War The Blessings of Peace and those who were fortunate enough to be present pronounced it unequaled in the list of the many entertain ments given in the town this year Miss McNeill received her diploma which was presented in a most inviting manner by the principal Prof P D Neilson Rev S M Miller delivered a commencement address which for oratorical powers depth of thought and sublimity of senti ment stands without an equal in that institution of learning Well and truly can we state that all parties teachers and students acquitted themselves in every effort befitting the heartiest endorsement of a progressive and intelligent people and truly did they receive it In token of the high appreciation held for the Principal the students presented Profv Nelson with a fine gold watch charm The decorations were artistic and gave a r freshingairtoeve1Y entertainment and

rhyme nor reason in the protectionist claim that the growing cottonmill i dustry of the South is converting that part of the country to monopoly protection The most formidablerivals to Southern mills are those of New England and there is no way un der the Constitution of th United States by which the in fant mills of the South can get protection against the fullgrown ones of the North In fact in competition with New England the Southern mills would most likely thrive better under free trade than un frowningof cotton goods so much morpe cheaply than they can be mad elsewhere that they could stand competitionI transfer them to the South If the South can manufacture sheetings and other plain cotton goods and sell them in China as as she is doing in competition with English and German mills there need be little fear of for eign competition in the American market for such goods Southern farmers would no doubt be willing to concede any reasonable protection to the cot ton mills which in truth fullfill the promise of a home for farm products But reasonable protection and Dingley robbery are two separate and distinct things The entire South has long been as tired of Dingly robbery as the Middle West and northwest are becoming St Louis Republic LEARN TO LAUGH A woman has no natural gift more bewitching than a sweet laugh It is like the sound flutes upon the water and the heart that hears it feels as if bathed in the cool exhilarating Spring Sometimes a it comes in the midst of care or sorrow or irksome business f ringing through the room like a silver bell with power to scare away the evil spirits of the mind How much is debtor to that sweet laugh It turns prose to poetry it flings showers of sunshine over the darkness of the wood in which weary feel are traveling it touches with light even tired sleep which is no more the image of death but is consumed with dreams that are the shadows of immortality DEEP IN THE MUD Congressman Longworthat his bachelor dinner told

dog The selfmade man usually worships his creator Ears that listen to gossip are as guilty as the tongue that tells it A man can always see the foolishness of it after the deed is done The more children airman has the less he knovs about how to raise them tThe man who undertakes to fight the devil with fire should dress in a suit of asbestos Every man believes that if good sense were hereditary his children would be unusually ca pable The man who tackles his work as though it was a pleasure is soon able to take his pleasure without working The only man who has nothing- to regret is the man who never tried to accomplish something worth while When a man is caught turning dirty trick he is very apt to make loud complaints about yellow journalism Some people work harder trying to find an excuse for their wrongdoings than they would have to work if they did right The man who keeps his eyes on the ground may never stum ble but he misses many things worth stubbing his toe for A

has come to learn that the public always ac cepts him at his own valuation Journalism is both a business and a profession So far as it sells news as a commodity it is a business so far as it endeavors to direct public opinion and to influence public action it is a profession It is an honest busi ness to sell news it is an honest profession to mould public senti ment if it is honestly done The average country editor is not al ways sure of his own status be cause of the uncertain status of his calling Some country editors lookupon themselves as semi public charges like many coun try preachers and subsist large ly on donations made through the good nature and the charity of their patrons or neighors This type we hasten to add is rapidly disappearing from the country press If weekly journ alism has not so high a place in the respect of its readers or the confidence of its advertisers as the country editor thinks it should have it is entirely be cause he has failed to take him self and his business or profes sion seriously and he has ac cepted a place in the general estimation alongside the village joker the corner grocery orator and the street corner gossip Press and Printer TIMETABLE OF CRIME After reading a startling time table of Chicago crime which he said was based on actual official record McKenzie Cleland an at torney told the Chicago Presby tery that the situation reminded him of a story in which hades was located within the Chicago limitsSeventyfive ministers and lay men applauded the speaker who severely criticised Mayor Dunne According to the figures pre sented by Attorney Cleland the Chicago time table of crime is as followsDisturbance in streetEvery 6 secondsArrest made Every 7i minutes Arrest for drunkennessEvery 15 minutes Larceny committedEvery 20 minutesAssault and battery Every 27 minutesBurglaryEvery 3 hours A holdupEvery 6 hours SuicidesTwo every day MurdersOne every day These crimes are committed with this frequency day and night through the year The contemplation of these figues is astounding and enough to strike terror to the heart of every lawabiding and peaceful citizen said Mr Cleland We have added 500 patrolmen to our Police Department but there has been no decrease in the volumnz of crime and no appreciable increase in the number of arrests You ask what can be done to remedy these conditions I do not know that we can do anything that will give practical relief We can not compel the Mayor to do his duty and enforce the laws All the churches can do is to increase their home mis sionary work in an effort
