Post Special Service Danville Ky Aug 15Danville is to be the terminus of a new railraod extending from this point to Savannah Ga by way of Nashville and Chatta nooga The promoters met in Danville and elected officers as follows James S Allen New York City President F P Combset Liberty Ky Vice President M J Farris Danville Treasurer and E A Hundley Dan ville Secretary Mr Allen is interest ed in a road which is now being built through Georgia and which will unite with the Danville road at Nashville The survey has already been made for the Danville branch which will be known as the Nashville Scottsville Danville branch The company is capitalized 12000000 and the entire output of bonds has been sold with the exception of 2000000 worth which have been practically dis posed of to Eastern

with the assassination of J McScott at Helena Ark August 4th was given an examining trial before James R Turner last week The evidence was stronger against Archdale than against Carruth but the proof was sufficient to send both men to jail without bail The regular term oft circuit court will convene in October The Helena World the paper that Mr Scott was connected with is doing every thing in its power to bring the guilty parties to justice It seems from the evidence aduced at the examining trial that Carruth had a grudge against Scott and the evidence further shows that there was a conspiracy to murder him THE INSTITUTE The exercises in the Adair County Teachers Institute closed last Friday It was an interesting session from the beginning until the closing hour The instructor Prof Cherry

delivered an address to the teachers on the sub l ject of scientific education bringing out the point that all indi viduals are developed by a process of gradual evolution and growthThere were eighty teachers en rolled In the afternoon the question Are institutes profita ble to the teachers if not why not 1 was discussed at consider able length by Prof Welborn of Campbellsville and others It seemed to be the decided opinion of those who spoke on the subject that institutes are beneficial to teachers directly and also to the pupil either di rectly or indirectly It would seem that the institute may be attendTand pay jfWork in hand One great trouble with institutes as seen by many is that the work done in institutes is repeated from year to year and thus lose interest to many who

husbands To sum up his advice it is to learn how to cooksweep and darn socks He would have girls taught to be domestic rather than intellectual All this sounds well because we are used to it This advice has been sounded in feminine ears since Adam delved and Eve span Possibly Eve did not spin but why spoil a quotation for a mere fact It is good advice too but does it express quite all the duty of womanhood Cannot women be good wives and mothers and still be intellectual Simply be cause cooking must be done and socks must be darned must half of humanity and the best half at thatbe excluded from all the wonders of progress all the beauties of the thought world all the higher and finer delvelop ments of spirituality of art and of life r Cannot a wife be a mental comrade of her husband as well as his mere housekeeper and cook Should riot the mothers of future men be able to impart to their sons through prenatal influence and through early asso ciation some of the intellectual strength and tendencies that the coming age will require Why have a lopsided humani ty Why keep one sex circumscribed while the thought world of the other is forever expand ing Why confine the horizon of the one to four walls while that of the other is ever glorified by new dawns If we limit the mothers of the race to a petty sphere wilt not this narrow out look be imparted to the children Wdmen should learn to cook but should they not also learn to livei Regular as the Sun is an expression as old as the race No doubt the rising and setting of the sun is the most regular performance in the universe

concieve them and induce women to join in their ex ecutionA woman should be implacable but rarely is She is more likely to forgive and forget V It is supposed that the injunc tion to turn theother cheek if one is smitten was directed ex clusively to women Women are supposed to hide behind a smiling face all the sor rows of an aching heartl The woman who betrays she anguish of her soul to the
