growing in public favor The Columbia Band made the music and the number of pieces ren dered were of the thrilling character 1and in full keeping with the programme To say that each and every contestant showed training and exhibited athletic tendences to a remarkable degree would be but mildly expressing it and to spe cifficially point out the winners as the only ones of merit would be gross in justice to every one who engaged in any of the exercises The truth is that there is not a sluggard nor a msfit and while all could not get a prize yet each and every one deserved more than ap plause from the audience Prof Neilson and Moss deserve much praise for the above programme and the encouragement given athletic exercises All the gate receipts were given the ath letic Association for

good work was done by both teams which was sufficient evidence that it would have been a game right had every thing been favorable At the close of the fifth the game was called off due to approaching

OF MELVIN WHITE By U L Taylo- rCHAPTER IX After his experience with Lee John ston Melvin went to Taylor county and procured a school in the neighborhood of Burdick Every thing was going on smoothly so far as we could hear un til he wrote a letter to his friend John Ed Murrell giving his experience as far as he had gone He said my dear friend John 1 have been thinking for some time of writing you a letter but have been putting it off Now I have determined to write I have been con templating my life what it has been and what it might have been I had many warm and dear friends in the vicinity of my home they all seemed interested for me all were ready and willing to give advice the advice was not always harmonious but if I had taken it all my life would have been different from what it is and has been It is well known to you that for several years I have had my heart set on teaching school and keeping store The former I have realized but it has proven to be not all that my fancy had painted It might be so with the latter but my friends in their advice have gone even further than these two commendable callings If I had follow ed the advice so freely and honestly given I might now be a preacher of the gospel and a Methodist preacher at that While teaching over here far away from friends and associates I have been studying out some reforms in the pedagague business I under took to carry out one of these reforms but it was not a complete success in fact it might be set down as a failure In reading the history of schools and school teaching I came across an ex perience of Joseph Cook the celebrated teacher and I determined to try the experiment which in theory Cook thought would be a success The plan was this whenever a boy needed pun ishing for the teacher to offer himself as a sacrifice and let the boy whip him instead of him whipping the boy I reasoned in this way that the little boys could not whip hard enough to hurt and the very suggestion would punish the big boys far more than the whipping could possibly do I deter mined to try it whenever an opportunity afforded itself On last Monday I made the annoucement to the school I explained as best I could what a vica rious punishment was and told them that henceforth I would take all the whipping myself It seemed to create a sensation Shortly after this an nounement John Smith I call him John Smith because that is not his tame broke nearly all the rules at once and I called him to account for it I told him what the penalty was but I would take the punishment and let him inflict it I was a little disappoint ed because he did not apologize and refuse to do the whipping I told him to take the switch and lay it on well He was a very strong boy and he poked at the switch and asked me if hie had not better get a better one I told him to do as he liked about it He got a keen long beech limb and when prepared for the sacrifice he spat in his hands and took the rod in both and raised it aloft and brought it down with two fold vengeance He followed it with another and another until he seemed to be satisfied and I was thoroughly so I am doing my teaching stading up and have abundant time to consider whether the new plan is a success or a failure I am very well satisfied that it will not work with the larger class of boys When I see you I will talk the matter over more fully Yours Melvin L White Melvin when at home attended all the parties and dances in the neighbor hood but he never could dance He was perfectly familiar with the step but when he undertook the job he was certain to get his feet tangled or tear his partners dress And so he soon quit trying and contented himself with watching and criticizing the othersIn next I will give you Melvins horse training experiences The most interesting and well as the most dangerous of his escapades To Be Continued A CHANGE IN FENCING A few years ago only the old rail fence was the mainstay of protection to enclosures and it was not an uncom mon sight to see a farm with a ten rail fence and riders on top of it The fact is that every farm was railed in and all the cross fences were of rails Only pound the yards and small

until the old rail fence looked all out of date and now nearly every farm has more slat than any other kind The next step was a tre mendous advance in timber about one year ago and now the slat fence is merely to be repaired while all new fences are being built out of wire Within a few more years everything will be wired It would be a safe in vestment to put money into a wire fence manufacturing

developement of trade along the Cumberland is really understood Mr Dunbar has property interests in that part of Russell County and has long sought the building of the road What that means to Russell Springs and Jamestown can not be ac curately stated What effect it will have on the terminal point on the river and the territory through which it will pass can not well be over estimated The truth is that it will awaken new impul ses give vim vigor and value to that entire and if there be anyone in the radius of its stimulating Values who fails to encourage or withholds help he is standing in his own light and fighting his own interests That section is to be congratulated on building such a valuable road and when completed and its worth and influence begin to show it will teach the people of

KY J MAY 15 1907 3 HAROLD McCORMICK SCHOOL The editor of the Tennessee Equity published at Elizabethton Tenn pays a high compliment to Rev W C Clem ens both as a teacher and a Minister It will be remembered that Rev Mr T Clemens left Columbia for Elizabeth ton Tenn last Summer and was elected principal of the Harold McCor mick School of that city The Equity peaks a follows The first years work of the Harold McCormick School under its new management has just closed and to say that it has been the best years work in the entire history of the school is but to feebly exprsss it There has been several changes in the course of study and the teaching force has been more than doubled during the past year Two years having been added to the course of study thus bringing it up to a firstclass high grade preparatory school For the reason of the two add ed years in the course the school had no graduates this year but several will complete the course next year The school closes this year with all the departments in good moving order and running smoothly with the pupils contented and happy and parents well pleased and hopeful and expectant of even better things next year The principal Rev W C Clemens who came here from school work at Co lumbia Ky with twenty years experi ence in his profession is in the opinion of the Equitys representative the best fitted man for the Elizabethton school work where his roundness of character and ability is considered that the writer ever met He is a fine instructor a friendly adviser firm but kind and af fable and his pupils one and all respect him love him and regard his wishes to the very highest degree and more than this he fills the pulpit of the Presbyte rian church every Sunday morning his sermons are always short concise log ical and forceful and during his short stay the Presbyterian church which once had the greatest membership cam posed of the most wealthy and was most prosperous we say since his short stay the church gives every evidence of a return to these conditions if Mr Clemens is to remain with us On Monday and Tuesday evenings were the exercises of the music and el ocution classes The weather was not very favorable yet the audience room of the school building was filled both evenings When we remember that a large part of these classes was just be bginners these entertainments were a proof that some hard continuous and conscientious work had been done as this was the first appearance of many of them before an audience great credit is due to the teachers for their efforts It is an excellent showing for the elo cution work as it was an entirely new feature in the school and community The efforts of Mrs Clemens have been greatly appreciated as is shown by the large number in her class during the year and the desire of so many to con tinue during the Summer She now has applicant for more than she can take during the vacation She has been able to impart some of her own enthusi asm to her pupils She teaches only high grade music but her pupils enjoy it and are learning to render it in an excellent manner NORTHWEST TEXAS 100000 acres of rich Texas land con venient to railroads

siewspaper office has advanced and still keeps going until many country nublishers are seriously Considering an advance in their dourpwhether there is a Has faced such an unprecedented advance in expense without a corresponding one in receipts asI have the county papers For the last few years an ambition seems to have seized the country publishers to excell each other in circulation and to play game against the cheap weeklies of the cities until the price of a country paper seems high at oneI dollar per year That such course is but folly is clear tour mind and there has never been a time when we did not believe that a reverse of policy would become necessary That it is approaching and that coun try publishers must soon ad vance the subscription price of their publications can not be much longer avoided unless a turn in the market for material is favorable to them A 7 column weekly folio may be successfully conducted at a dollar per year under present prices but larger and more expensive publications must do something or else bear an unjust proportion of expense that the sub It is our judgment scription price of the lest coun weeklies and semiweeklies intelliis gent readers who support them will be willing to pay a better for their paper The same decondition partment of every office and yet customers are expecting the same old prices It is hard for one publisher to advance his priceI over his compeditor and harder for both to continue to pay all the additional expense that comes in the form of high material and labor There ought to be concerted and united action on the part of country publish h ers If you are a newspaperman and going up against the above you know that such step justifiable and wise even if unwilling to join in the move The advocate ofa two cent passenger fare on railroads are showing up and while low rates cheap passage is evidently pop ular yet to our mind it is not farJ4 our State to make such aHa demand Several of the States twolQal8icents latures and while the roads haveI acceded to the demands in instances in others they are contesting The fact is that in Ken tucky we need more roads rather than cheaper fares We need to stimulate the building of independent and competing lines rather than shut the door of hope to profitable investments in such enterprises If the next Legis lature should pass a two cent law it will be a serious mistake Cor porations of all kinds shonld be given fair treatment for it is through such agencies that our country has made and is still making such rapid strides in de velopment We do not believe in subordinating the public inter ests for the welfare of corpor ate greed We do not believe in the unholy combination of cor porations and capital to fleece the public but capital must be I united and corporations exist to accomplish the gigantic under takings so necessary for the development of our country Ohio has put its roads on a two cent fare and the roads are making profitable earnings but while that is true it does tot mean that the same can be done in thisI State The cost of building andI operating there is bound to be less than in Kentucky and the population is greater than we can hope to have twenty years hence Ohio already has ample roads while Kentucky is but poorly provided Ohio is highly developed while Kentuckys natural resources in a large part of the State are undisturbed There must be more railroad building in this State or development will be greatly crippled Our next Legislature should see the future as well as the present It should open the door of hope rather than close it Hon CC McChord Chair man of the Kentucky Railroad Commission has become President t of the National Association of State Railroad and Interstate CommissionersI missioners due
