graceful movements by many of the young ladies and young gentlemen There were many upon the floor who had on skates for the first time and the progress they made in a few hours was remarkable Of course there were many ups and downs andwhen performer spread himself upon the floor the spectators notified the assembly that they were exceeding ly well pleased The best of order prevailed and many of the best people in Columbia were in attendanceWhile performers were doing stunts upon the floor the Columbia Brass Band discoursed lively music many of the skaters keeping perfect time It was noticeable that every time the bass drum was given a hard tap a performer fell long and loud making a noise akin to distant thunder For the present the rink will be open every night in the week save Sunday and Wednesday and there is not a doubt but it will be well patronized Skating is fine exercise and besides there is much pleasure in the amuse 0TheStaples Coffey upon their opening trusting

passed the Sullivan educational bill which changes the whole system of school trus tees and establishes a high school in every county in the State The dill provides that the county shall ibe the governing unit in school matters and that a tax of not to exceed twenty cents shall be levied for school purposes in each county A county board of edu i cation shall consist of not less than four nor more than eight members with the County School Superintendent as a member ex officio is to be established ThisI hoard is to be selected election of one school trustee in each school district and the trustees of these districts to Compose a division board of edu xjationin each educational division of the county of which there shall be not less than four nor snore than eight The teachers 1r i are to be selected by the division Z1J rdsand each trustee is re Squired to look after the needs the schools In his district The main feature of the bill Jfi liA i i J aside from the alteration in the methods of managing school is that each county in the State shall have a high school The bill now goes to the Senate and is practically certain to pass there both the Democrats and Republicans favoring it The bill does not effect a graded high school or graded city school which now exists The railroad surveying corps has reached Liberty and will level up their grades from thereto their starting point on their return this week Col Allen is in Cincinnati conferring with contractors to whom the completed survey will be submitted and to get bids on same The othes survey will be made

God Success has not blinded to lifes purer joys And happy indeed is the man who comes back often for such sweet communion with old Mother Nature and who understands the truth of Spurgeons beautiful paragraph- He who forgets the humming of the bees among the heather the cooing of the wood pigeons- in the forest the song of the birds in the woods the rippling- of rills among the rushes and the sighing of the wind among the pines need not wonder if his heart forgets to sing and his soul grows heavy A days breathing of fresh air upon the hills or a few hours ramble in the beech woods umbrageous calm would sweep the cobwebs out of the brains of scores of toiling men who are now but half alive PLAYED BOTH ENDS Paradoxical as it may seem the defeat of exGov Beckham for the United States Senate was due to the whisky interest and to the prohibition forces The Republicans worked both sides and worked them to a finish It was a rare example of how both ends could be played in favor of the middle It is another case where temperance peaple per mitted themselves to be made fools ofwhere they were made the tools for their own undoing They jumped into politics and at the last moment during the campaign thew their strenght to the Republican ticket electing in this district alone both the Rep ublican Representative and Sen ator Had they kept hands off there would have been Democrats beenIis their pet measure the county unitbill is almost certain of defeat by the Republicans and they have aIIwedthe whisky interests to send one of their champions to the United States Senate where he will do their9 bidding for the next six years Owensboro Inquirer fsand Boys clothing over coats Call and againtf L Walker i l i A DISGRACE TO ETERNITY The election of Bradley was a vindication of nobody and made no progress in allaying the protracted heartburning on the dark and bloody ground It was not in Bradleys time as Gov ernor of Kentucky that the cruel assassination took place in the grounds of the Kentucky State house He was the candidate of those who adhered persistently to the fortunes or misfortunes of Caleb Powers The blot made on Kentucky is still there and Powers may have to stand an other trial If he does there areI other men of note who will have to fall into line for investigation of their connection with the crimeThe influence of such a man as Bradley being elected to the United States Senate will tend to soften some of the asperities that have been rampant ever since the killing of Goebel from am buscade but it can not wipe out the revengeful attitude that has been assumed all these years The actual trouble is not disposed of yet and the dreadful memory of the cowardly killing will be current while stories can be transmitted from one generation to the next A good deal has been done to ward the discouragement of the Populists and Anarchists who want to make the Republicans form a machine depending on force but the Goebel murder will stand as a disgrace to eternity The Kentuckians however still have their constitutional rights The State is now at least for a time on strict con struction ground and it may be back some

Postoffice as second daai mail matter WED MARCH 18 1908 The sane and practicable thing for the Democratic forces of this State to do is to cease criticis and appeal to the sober sense oJ the people and the great issue- confrontthat us in the welfare of party and State Men can not be driven like cattle and if our party is ever brought back to its old time vim and prestige it will be through convincing proof and reason and not by denunciation We can not hope to unite so long as we fight and denounce everyone whose views and whose ac tions do not measure up to our own way of thinking and doing Our party has been divided anc i honestly so Those who in 1896 i not accept the Democrati on on the paramount issue 5 whose unyielding Democracy r ought them back in later cam aigns should not be denounced l Eand measured by their refusal tc support their party at that time when advocating measures det rimental to the country as they honestly believed Again those who could not accept the leader ship of Mr Goebel through that party revolution of policy if wil ling to join hands with the De mocracy now should be received in full fellowship There are times and conditions when bolt ing a party is not treachery but redowns to good With everyman it should be when his party is not measuring up to the public good and this in the main can L only be determined by judgment r of men and measures as they see and understand them but this does not include the bolting Dem ocrats in the Kentucky Legisla ture whose plain duty was tarry o r out the will of their party in this and similar instances where power is delegated bolting i reaches the highest treachery Pelalaty within the limits of party or ganization to inflict We have e with such dishonorable v no compromise action and do

she can hang her harp on a chestnut tree and sell her literature to the feudists for gunwadding Ac cursed be the day that old Dan iel Boone began to shoot civiliza tion into the dark and bloody ground with his eight foot rifle Many names make glorious the pages of Kentucky history but these will fade for shame and other historians will write upon the torn pages of the golden book the pale memory of Kentuckys passing Wave not the proud ime mortalized in music and metre lest the eagle thunder the awful word of damnation upon the race of degenerateslest the stars on the blue field put out their lights for shame and the stripes grow dim with disgust From early childhood we have been taught to believe in the Kentucky trin ity of fastest horses fairest wom en and finest liquors and until last Saturdays morn the tricol ored banner of superlatives was an article of our faithbut the tripleheaded idolis shattered and hundreds of worshippers like Rachel refuse to be comfort ed Poets of latter days have sung the praises of Kentuckys meadow grass in sparkling g rhyme they have told us that heavens ethereal blue was pale green or dull brown in compar ison with the velvety carpet of royal blue that covers the sacred soil of the grand old common wealth They have told us that every Kentucky mare is a thoroughbred and every gelding a hotfoot that the Kentucky belle has the eye of a gazellethea grace of a nymph and the form of a naiad and that Kentucky mintjulep is a concoction that combines all the delightful fla vors that touch into life the finest fancies or weave the fair est pictures
