Kentucky among her sister States If Kentucky would stand thae column among the other Com monwealths we must do something for Kentucky The State has the reputation abroad that our Courts do not administer even Handed justice but is too often preverted by sympathy You Judges can do something for Kentucky by pay ing more attention to justice and the rights of society and less to the

the Governor tmmedi ately after the election while the first shock of the result was being felt there was much murr muring but this has now sub side and it seems to us the bottom has dropped out of the opposition Numbers of representatives and senators who were counted on to oppose Beckhams senatorial aspirations have over their signatures declared they would vote for him and not a member has publicly said that he would not scrvote This is as it should be We must elect Beckharn or nobody To attempt anything else means chaos We must not fail to elect a Senator and should the nominee of the primary be defeated itIwould completely disorganize Democratic party and destroy all hope of redeeming Kentucky in the Presidential campaign of 1908The talk of investigating the State primary is all twaddle Its results was accepted by Senator McCreary and all others interest ed a year ago An investigation would probably show as gross irregularities at Louisville and other cities on the one side as in the mountains on the other There will be no such investi gation The Democrats do not want it and it is an affair of the RepublicansThe of bringing out Lindsay is also twiddle If the time ever comes when another than Beck ham must be consider edas a senatorial candidate none but a consistant party man at all times will be chosen andi he will be altogether satisfactory to Beckham and his friends But we look for no such contingency We fully expect to see Beckham elected early in the session We say this for no oerween ing fondness for Beckham We guess everybody knows that We say it because it isthe0 only sane and logical conclusion We say it because it is now the only hope of a defeatechand disorgan ized party We say it because with the matter out of the way we hope to see they

words G jn behalf of those who have homes and are locatedin the State of Kentucky What I wish to speak of chiefly is the way the Emigration and Transporta tion Companies misrepresent Tex as rNow I believe in giving every thing justice and not show ing the least partiality I have been in the State since May 1900 and in that time have porn tions having spent two years in Denton county one in Harris county one in Wire county one each in Wilbarger Bowie and Comanche counties beside hav ing visited in a great many counties I have worked for the five Staterin capacity of Stution Agent I have given particular attention to the products raised in differ ent sections and find that cotton is the principal crop and the on ly crop that money can be real ized from but one who never had any experience in cotton culture would be surprised at the expense there is in the raising of this staple Then after you raise it you are at the mercy of the groeeryman from whom you have bought every thing you have eatjand your horse feed for the last 12 months I have known thousands of renters who have been raising cotton for years and if you ask them how they came out this year tis the same old cry About even I would say Well how many bales did you raise 1 Ten bales yell how muc did you get for your cotton 1 The answer is 10 cents per pound A bale of cotton weigh about 500 pounds which makes 50 per bale so that makes 500 The landlord gets of this while the renter pays for all the seed tend ing ginning etc so there is not much left as seed cost 1 per bushel 150 and board for plow ing and hoeing and 1 to 150 per cwt for picking 250 per bale for ginning They do not raise as much corn as cotton for renters consider land to precious to waste on corn as it doesnt pay as well as cotton

TUCKER SHOPPING EARLY Will VJDU join in a movement on a national scale to modify the- hardships e incident to holiday shoppingObservation might show many of us that Christmas is a time of hardship for those who have to do with supplying the needs of Christmas shoppers Authentic records from the lives of clerks wagons keeping the Christmas festival while we are feeding the lame and halt the blind and friendless we are lightlY reducing to illness and exhaustion the young and strong and faithful who serve us seen and unseen Every year the celebration of Christmas grows more elaborate More presents are bought the crowd grows greater the decorations are more splendid The problems of the merchants are correspondingly more complex the supply has to be increased the pressure at every point in tensifies On the one hand public opinion disapproves long hours and late work particularly for young women girls and children On the other hand merely through thoughtlessness many shoppers defer their purchases until the last possible moment at the cost of unnecessary strain upon salespeople and delivery forces The idea can be brought home to millions of customers that they can benefit themselves and everyone concerned if they will do their Christmas shopping ear ly in the season and early in the day This will lengthen the Christmas shopping period and reduce the disadvantages which in other seasons have attended the Christmas crowds Will you speak of this matter to your friends 1 SHORT METER SERMONS There is no ministry like that of manhood The fruitful life does not soon become

require the Health Officer of the county to make sanitary survey of the territory under his juris diction for the purpose of ascertaining the existence of conditions detrimental to the public health including in such survey the construction ventilation drainage o f public buildings schoolhouses c In making said survey in this county IJiave up to this date visited seventyfive school houses and find their sanitary condition generally good The water supply in several districts needs attentjon and I have notified the the trustees in such districts to remedy the defects But there is something greatly lacking in the schools themselves 1 was careful to take down in my memorandum book the number of schol ars in attendance as well as the numb r in the districts In the seventyfive districts visited I found 1749 in attendance and twenty six hundred and thirteen absent This fault is not in the teachers nor is it in the weather 1 began my visiting the first of August and ended the last of November I visited 31 in August 28 in September and 16 in November Nbw anybody can see that there is something radically wrong in the system somewhere According to this report an average of 23 were in attendance while an average of 36 were absent Two years ago I made a similar inspection and found things then in better shape than now I proposed then a rigid com pulsory schoolalaw We have now a law that aims to be compulsory but I have seen no effor to enforce it That law is too feeble and the penalty is too mild and it is altogether disregarded I called Mr Jones attention to this while he was iiioffice and I have called Mrs Sheltons attention to it since she come in but I suppose nothing has been done Now the county Superintendent is required to visit each school every year and I sappose it has been done and if it has she cant be ignorant of thesethings of which I an Writing and another thing some who are considered the best teachers have the smallest attendance One with 150 in the district had but 21 in attendance another with 101 had but 22 another with 90 hadbut 17 I think the parents ought to be compelled to send their children seventyfive days out of the 120 and the teachers should be required to report every delinquent Another thing This way of paying teachers according to the mumber of children in the district is altogether wrong Some of the largest districts have children the least advanced yet they require teachers with first class cirtificates and some of the smallest districts have the most advanced pupils Now what justice is there jn this I think the law ought to be so amended that every teacher with a first class cirtificate ought to be paid the same and the with 2d class cer ought to be paid alike and enough less to cause them to rise to the firstclass and the third class ought to be abolished altogether This plan would do away with a good dealof commercialism that that seems to prevail in sortie large districts I would like to hear and the public would like to hear from the superintendent and the teachers on this subject Let the question be agitated until the matter is settled in some wayi Our state is paying out a large some of
