1909 NUMBER 29 tj fThe End of The Sixth Term Lindseyi4high esteem and deep appreciation of the people of this section for those whose time and talents have been of in estimable worth in building and main taining that instiution of learning- It is no exageration when we state J that the year just closed was the most i successful in the history of the school The average attendance leadall previ ous years while upright conduct on the part of the students could not have teen better The fact is that The Lind seyWilson has succeeded in gaining a patronage from that class of people who desire advancement mentally morally and physically and in all these developmentAthe students and their parents From the beginning to the close of the year threwas no rowdyism mani fested on the part of any student and up to the mark of hard work seemed to4 be the purpose of all That this com munity and entire section of Southern Kentucky feels a great pride in The Lindsey Wilson that they thoroughly appreciate the ability and worth of Profs Neilson and Moss as leaders and directors and that the entire corps of teachers have measured up to a high standard can not be questioned On last Sunday in the Methodist church Dr Cherry of Nashville delivered the bac aulaureate sermon which i teemed with truths most appropriate 1 On Monday he addressed the graduat prest1 and his line of thought and

entertainments of its character ever given by the school The Columbia Orchestra assisted Miss Nell in tlje exercises and Smany boquets in the way of compli ments were showered upon the mem ahers MISS SHANNONS CLASS Miss Lucile Shannon who has had charge of the literary and expression department for the past two years proving herself to be an accomplished reader and instructor was before a large audience Saturday evening with her class and a most pleasing program 1was rendered There were two plays in which humor and pathos abounded each performer acting his or her part most admirably Miss

met with as smooth sailing as the LindseyWilson Training School for four consecutive years During that period the principals have been Prof P D Neilson and Prof R R Moss who are thoroughly qualified gentlemen and who are perfectly at home in the school room They are in the work because they love it and for the further reason that they have adopted teaching as a profession for life They are both disciplinarians but they do not resort toextreme meth ods in order to control the school They are firm in their decisions and in making rulings it is done so smoothly and so gentlemanly that pupils have the utmost respect for them and do their best to keep them inviolable An even tempered teacher is not found in every school room but for four years good and effective work has been accomplished in the LindseyWilson peace and good will continuously reign ing between teachers and pupils a record that Profs Neilson and Moss should be proud Their places would be difficult to fill and we trust that they will continue with the school f or many years yet to come In making that statement we feel sure that we voice the sentiment of the people of Colum bia and of this section of Kentucky It is understood that the twofirst years were also successfully managed being largely controlled by Prof C R Payne and associates Circuit Cu twiU continue through this week1n the case of Dr U L Taylor

Columbia and the people of AdaIr sv and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Foatoffice as second IIIcIa mail matter WED e1 MAT 19 1909 rif N N M NTS FOR JAILER We are authorized to announce C G Jeffries a candidate for Jailer of Adair county subject to the action of the Democratic party The fact that political parties are the organizedchannels through which our officials are selected and that no party can absolutely controle the people and mark their rule of action in the selection of men for posi tions of honor and trust are becoming more apparent every year to the great bulk of our 4 citizens It is a further fact that the adherents of both the Demo cratic and Republican parties are fast gaining in independence of thought and actions and that the day is approaching when intelli gent men will cease to rally round their party banner when the party leaders are not in ac cord with upright political living Every man indentified with- a political organization must feel a pride in its worthy achiev ments and if conscientious must feel humiliated when degrading methods are employed or when incompetent or unworthy members of the party are placed in responcible and honorable posi tions That the great bulk of the intelligent people desire corn petent men and clean politics can hardly be doubted but too often party zeal and secondhanded ambition override judgment and conscience and the bad as veIlI as the good the incompetent as truly as the qualIfiedreceIVe the same loyal party support and are placed in positions of great importance to the general public We hold that honor and honesty sobriety and unquestioned ca pacity are prerequisites for every official from Magistrate to Gov ernof and that there is no excuse to justify the election of a man of bad morals or a political cor ruptionist Party tickets are often deadweighted through party primaries and conventions brought about by methods des tructive of honor and fairness andwhen such happens is not only bad for the party but for the entire section involved Every thing is fair in politics will not and can not be accepted by those who truly desire the advancement of their country or the standing of their party The r I love of country ought to promp every man in securing the bes officials possible Every o n ought to stand for a fair deal and where disreputable methods are employed should be severely rebuked at thepolls An incom 5 peteht in a political position is no- vl better than the one in a privat J jbusiness and dishonesysty in ppB 4 1 tics is no less a grievous sin than r swindling in business Mi WNA Carnes of Rowena ahasannounced himself a candi datefor Magistrate in his dis i M ft j tact subject to the action of his party He speaks in unmistak able language that hefef or abroad ataWhile a stranger to us out of our county and a Republican be sides yet his progressive and aggressive position is exactly to our notion and ought to meet the hearty endorsement of the poe pIe of his county The most vital question that confronts the Southern tier of Kentucky counties is the road question If this section ever liberates its people from the terrible bad roads it will forge to the front in leaps and bounds If it con tinues to dodge a road tax and keep its fearful highways it can never hope to reach a high degree of development It would be a pleasure to us to know that not only Mr Carnes but an entire court of his county would be made of his mind and determi quesI such men is this county exists It is generally known that dis satisfaction has prevailed in this the 16th

CHILDS HOME TRAIN ING WHAT IT SHOULD BE Home Environments and Asso ciations What Part of our Character is Made by Nature BY SURROUNDING CONDITIONS ETC BY =MATTHEW TAYLOR This subject was given to me some time ago by Bro J V Dud ley with a request that I make a talk on it some day in Sunday School I cheerfully agreed to do so on the spur of the moment not thinking of the task I had assumed or my utter incompe tency to perform it However feeling it to be my duty to try to do anything that may be considered good for our Sunday School our neighborhood or our country I considered the sub ject to some extent and on one occasion tried to say something relative to it but failed to present my thoughts as I wished to do and consequently I have written out more fully what I think about it and if you will be pa tient for a short time I will try to read to you what has occurred to my mind In the first place where good morals and genuine desire for the happiness and pros perity of others are cultivated where truth honesty and con tent reign supreme and where a disposition is cultivated in the mind of the child or children to seek that home where it is said The wicked cease from troubling and the weary shall find rest Now my definition of the childs home is given altogether from the teachings of my mother and father and my sad experience in disregarding them While I was not very immoral I was not truly so moral as I should have been As to the happiness and prosperity of others I took no thought from the fact it was never pre sented to me in such a way as to draw my attention I was taught that it was my duty to do unto others as I would have them d o unto me which I suppose would have covered the ground but I paid very little attention to it for a long time I always had particular reverence for truth and honesty but frequently butchered both c o n s i d e r a b 1 y when considered in a moral and religious sense I was not con tented because I thought it required wealth to purchase contentment and ease in this world and never until rather late in life did I find out that a sufficien cy with peace of mind was more to be valued than great riches The Bible was always pointed out as the book of books that taught the way to Heaven where eternal joys awaited everyone who obeys its precepts but an impression was made at the same time that there was no con necting link between the joys of earth and Heaven and conse quently thinking if rwas one of the elect I was safe if not I was irredeemably lost I disregarded the admonitions o f conscience and the solicitations of friends The reason I refer to myself in this instance is because I have been so careless myself through life that I felt it would be best imperfections give advice to others It seems tome that the deft nition I have given of the childs home is suggestive of what its training should be 11 the first rr jli tiqI place the child should be taught to be kind and polite to all with whom it comes in contact not to use profane or vulgar language to be truthful and honest under any and all circumstances and that to act thus is not the best for it in this life only but will aid greatly in making preparation fora home where the troubles and mortifications inherent in our natural bodies will cease and where universal peace and hap piness will prevail This brings to mind the fact that every parent is a teacher and is responsi ble to his child to his country and his God for its proper mor al and religious training It al so brings to mind the thought as to how little pains are frequent ly taken to prepare the young for parental duties In order that the parents may perform their duty properly it is necessa ry that they should know the position they ocupy and its re sponsibilities They should know at least that the child or children under their care are in possession of two states of ex istance a worldly existence in which they can best enjoy the world by making preparation for that spiritual existance promised to the faithful in the spiritual world beyond the grave They should know also that there are two states of infancy through which all children pass one from birth to the years of accounta bility and the other from the age of accountability to the years of manhood and womanhood They should know likewise that the soul is an angle and that an angle is no more than an un bodied mind that the mind will seek such surroundings in the spiritual world as it enjoys most in this and that the foundation must be laid in the first stage of infancy on which the moral and religious character must be erect ed during the second stage and that in order to build up such characters as their moral and re ligious duties demand it requires example patience and perseverance to accomplish their designs They cannot accomplish anything by telling their children that it is wrong to talk in a disrespectful way of their neighbor and at the very first opportunity and that too in the presence of their children commence a tirade on the character of their neighbor just to the extent they are promt ed by prejudice selfishness or jealousy and just to the extent they are actuated by either mag nifying his misfortunes or judg ing harshly of his actions there by creating a prejudice in the minds of their children which is never eradicated but is carried on from generation to genera tion forgetting the old adage that in judging of others we should employ the spirit of charity and candor but in judging ourselvesx we should be exact and severe Now as to patience and persever ance it seems to me we have a very good example given by na ture in the history of a worm of which it is said when it wishes to change its state in the world it crawls into a suitable place envelopes itself with a covering and thus puts itself into a womb that ft maybe born again and goes 6 n through the different stages till it is clothed with wings and able to fly
