on the flill The Work to be Pushed CONTRACT FOR BRICK WORK LET The Educational Board of The Louis ville Conference willmake some valuable improvements the Lindsey Wil son Hill which will bEIJof great worth to the school and add much to the corn fort and convenience of the many who ocicupy the dormitories V A contract has been let to Lonnie Simms to do the brick work aqd to W TMcFarlantthe stone work on an ad dormitory to be built thirtyfour feet wide fiftyfour long and two stories high with full basement The basement will be made of stone and the walls of the building of brick The first floor will be used for kitchen and dining room the former being fourteen by thirtyfour feet thus leaving a dining hall thirtyfour by forty feet In the basement a steam heating plant will be placed and will be large enough to heat the College building when the furnace fails to meet the de mands On the second floor will te nine rooms for girls which will aid in relieving the crowded condition during the winter months when that building is heavijy taxed with younglady students The addition will be so constructed asI buildIingand maintain the most modern formOf boarding hall We are informed that the Board contemplates such a move when the necessities of the school de mand it The present dining hall will be used for a gymnasium building and su h equipments as are necessary for urns cle development will be added at an early day The two dormitories used by the young men will also have at ft1 ion The Board will almost recon struct them double ceiling and flooring them using corrugated paper toe den sound thus giving the occupants of eV r1 room quiet as well as warm quarters These two buildings will be heated by a furnace andthe sheetiron stoves will all disappear from them Messrs Neil son and Moss assumes the responsibil ity of raising a fund ufficient to pay for the furnace while the Board foots all the other expense reaching 3000l The necessity for an even tempera ture in the dormitories has been thor oughly felt by the experience of the last two or three years with sheetiron stoves and the many colds and cases of pneumonia will not be so common when the chilly days of winter come In as sumnig the cost of putting in the furnace Messrs Neilson and Moss did so fully believing that the many friends of tile Lindsey Wilson wil come to their rtjief in the matter and not let the en tire burden rest on them The Board would have passed this much needed improvment but for the pluck and pro gressiveness these gentlemen who have the comfort and well being of every student at heart and have volun terred to shoulder at least five hundred dollars worth of improvements 0 The people ought to come to their rescue by good contributions A few dollars from a few people will make the amount needed That the Educational Board has greater improyments for this institution and that the school has greater service and worth for this part of the State can not be doubted It is also apparent that the Board means to back up the men in charge as truly as the people who patronize the school appreciate their service They are the right men in the right place and are do ing a work building a school and advancing this section that will liye long after they have passed from the walks of life Heres hoping that the future of The Lindsey Wilson may continue in its rapid permanent

eralolthe State who were here to upon advanced education and to show the standing of Kentucky in point of education with other States through out the union They presented some startling figures and gave many potent reasons why this Commonwealth es pecially the people should take more interest In education This State pays four dollars annually for the education of every child in it of school age but the trouble is that a large per cent of them are out of school Tne addresses highlyentertainingand information was gathered from them In point of illiteracy Kentucky stands almost at the bottom of the list yet it pays more money than almost any other State for school purposes These gentlemen presented remedies and it i3hoped that their suggestions will prove of much value While Adair county like many other counties in the State is taxed for school purposes In the long rum it does not pay a cent The State pays back more than it re eives Did it ever occur to you that this everlasting

beginning farming in the United States there has been a misunderstanding in some sections and among certain farmers as to why clover wont grow Of course there are different reasons but it is us ually because the ground is eith er sour or because it is not good enough to give the young plants the proper starts says Epitomist- If a farmer finds that he can not make red clover or alfalfa do well it is comparatively a easy thing for him to experimennt with an acre or so Let him buy say fifty bushels of lime just before he sows his grain Make a big bin of boards on the ground dump the lime i n it and slack with water Waterslacked lime is much better than airslacked Then after the soil is prepared for seeding scatter 25 bushels of this slackened lime on one acre and sow it with three pecks of barley and 25 pounds of good well tested alfalfa seed Then scatter say 300 pounds of soil from the side of the road where sweet clover grows in abundance Of course farmers cannot af ford to do a great deal of but i t pays to know your soil as well as your climate Climate may cover a whole country but soil is peculiar to each farm The ex periment station can tell a farm er what pecan grow to advantage so far as climate grows but he must find out for himself the right met hods of treating his par titular soil in order to take ad vantage of favorable clmatic con ditions A man risks very little in trying lime on a single acre If went t fails to work an improve the experiment is more than likely to point fie way to ft1ccess in some other direction j X t late Crops f ij There is a whole

order to celebrate the longest day in the year I shall say something through your columns to your great array of readers Beginning with weather condi tion this region has had too much rain On night of June 8 a freshet came that spread havoc in bottom crops Our place is on Hintons Creek which is a never failing stream about as large as Glensfork in Adair County Ev ery man who is able to have a shingled roof or glass windows tries to either hold office or else build a grist mill saw mill or cotton gin The night of this freshet two old mills with their dams two old bridges with their appurtenances broke from their mooings and are scattered over our bottoms As our upland generally has a slant of 45 degrees what wash outs did was a plenty As I had workI ed heavily in fertilizers Iam de lighted In 1886 I had same experience and as in this year had flattering prospects for crop The same gang had oldmills and they washed away and lodged on my crop In addition I had typhoid fever and certain ly felt grateful for manifold blessings But I have learned that a way is provided for the lame and the lazy and I am a little of both Of course it could have been worse and many of my neighbors are more damaged than myself My first farming venture was in Kentucky during the season of 1881 which was the dryest year I ever saw The same conditions prevailed here and in 1882 I- cameasamissionary selling Hitchcock Analysis of Bible to the people of North Carolina I began in classic Polk county where corn was raised to make whiskey and the citizenship lived on swey and
