I t i tti L I I ii r l m t bf anntn ebJ Ji d r i VOLUME XII COLUMBIA ADAIR COUNTY KENTUCKY WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 171909 NUMBER 54 Xto t JAIL DELIVERY i WhiskeyPediij I Make their Escape 1 nTHE JAILER WAS ABSENT FROM HOME Wednesday about midnight or early Thursday morning Charley Dikes and Ottie Price two burglars and Jas Cross a whisky peddler made their escape from the Adair county jail Dikes and Price are the parties who recently robbed Green Reynolds store at Ozark and who were caught at Cane Valley and lodged in jail They a evidently old offenders and it is sai that before coming to Adair county they made their escape from the Somt erset jail and that in Pulaski county there are seven conuts against one of the parties Their escape from this jail was made by sawing the heads off the bolts that held the stick iron slide which fastened the cell door When they reached the hallway it was easy for them to make a hole through the brick wall and es cape It is generally believed that they had the saws concealed on their persons when they were placed in jail Right here we will make a suggestion for future adoption When professional tHieves are caught before locking them in cells have them change clothing from head to foot Men who can make their escape from steel cages know how to conceal their tools Jas Cross the whisky vendor lives in Clinton county and was serving out a sentence and fine Mr Tarter the Jailer was not at home when the parties made their escape having gone to his farm ten miles from town the evening before Blood hounds were ordered from Lin coin county but the owner of the dogs reported that they were not in condi tion to trail and he could not come Two men it is reported took the stage at Coburg about 3 oclock in theI morning after the delivery and is supposed they were the two burglars If that is a fact that is the last jjlue of them Cross it is said passed the place i the lower edge of the county where his arrest was made the next day at 12 o clock It is thought he was makin for his home in Clinton county Valuable Property for Sale Iwill as Master Commissioner of the Russell Circuit court sell to the highest and best bidder on Monday the

the- habit of a flock of geese owned by Mrs W A Hindman their soaring high in the air and leaving home taking in a circuit of several miles Last week Mrs Hindman informed her husband that the geese needed picking and suggested that as they fed with the hogs at night they be driven to the house and their feathers removed The geese were on time and after being fed they seemed to have premonition that their feathers were to be removed and at a signal from the leader they took flight soaring high and sailed off in the direction of outJall night next morning for breakfastS V Birthday Dinner Last Friday was the fiftieth anniver r sary of Mr J Z Pickett of this place His daughter Mrs Geo E Wilson conceived the idea of surprising him and notified her mother early in the morning to be at her home and to tell I her father to report at her house at the dinner hour In the meantime about twenty other persons were invit ed to put in an appearance When Mr Pickett arrived he was very much surprised to see so many friends assembled but he was very much gratified when told that his daughter had honored him with a birthday dinner and that the friends were present to help him enjoy it It was a sumptuous affair and the occasion will long be remembered by theWJ The hunting season opened Mond JanuaryTbojamil aliootinLfshould respect the s of the land owners and not trespass jtiy but tittle

evidence of interest in the proposition was very pronunced Several letters were read from the outside party interested in the investigation of this section and the proposed line from Columbia to Greens burg The money for the preliminary survey was secured by contribution through the efforts of the committee composed of James Garnett L B Hurt and J H Young Gov J R Hindman was authorized to inform the company interested in this movement- to send a repre5r tat Ie ut the earliest day possible to look over the route and make a thorough investigation Within a short time this step will be proposidfirst meeting the initiatory step nothing more than the above was attempted It is not out Of order to say that at no time in the history of Columbia haye the people more generally realized the importance of united effort for better transportation facilities and we pe lieve that a hearty response will be forth coming from nearly every citizen in this section when a fair proposition is made by the company proposing to build That stock in the road would yeild profitable returns is scarcely doubted by any one that a rapid advance in the price of real estate would foUowandnew and profitable avenues in business open up is not questioned The conveniences are also worth con sidering and the people all seem to be in the proper frame of mind to want all the above If the people of Greens burg want to be proffitably connected with this section we believe the time has come for action and we trust a hearty response will be forth coming At any rate Columbia proposes to make the best of the situation We want rapid transit to the L N Railroad and we mean to direct our energies to that end We have called attention many times to the worth of blood hounds and on one occasion presented this to the Fiscal Court only to see it rejected The recent escape from our jail of three prisoners again calls attention to the importance of the county keeping courtnthat the dogs could not be taken as

IN- PUBLIC SCHOOLS VAn Address read by RI Camp bell Before the Teachers As sociation Held at Anti och Oct 209 Mrs Superintendent Fellow Teachers Ladies and Gentlemen It gives me much pleasure to come before you today for the purpose of discussing one of the most important subjects thatr could occupy the minds of the people Literature in the Public Schools It is a subject worthy of the eloquence of a Demos thens a Cicero a Henry Clay or a Bryan but if you will bear with me for awhile I will endeavor to make a few suggestions which I trust will be helpful to you in the training of children and thus placing our standard on a higher planeWhen I speak of literature I mean Southern Literature be cause we are of the South are interested in the welfare of the v South and should be familiar with the Literature of the South I must confess that I do not know much about literature and what little I do know has been learned out of school I find that our schools and most of our teachers are intensely southern 1but southern literature has no place in the cirriculum and Southern authors have but few ex pounders But as my experi recentri years and Southern Liturature truly had its beginning in the Antibellum days I must not confine myself to the narrow channel of expereince Before the war as now all of our read ers histories and in fact all of our schoolbooks came from the s north they were full of the best literature to be obtained from classic Greece and Rome from i modern continental Europe i from the British Isles from the Northern States but there was ft seldom a poem a story or an oration from a Southern author Thus Southern authors were not i mentioned except perhaps incij dentally 4 i T Why is it that the South did not and does not yet have her share representation schoolbooks and other publicaj fOrJjvantof southern gentleman is a classical scholar and the southern lady a queen of grace and refinement Is it for want of intellectual vigi or No for the thinkers of the South rival those of all the rest of the world Fertile soil bounj teous harvests and an industril ous population forbid the intima tion that she is financially unable Can it be because she is wanting in deeds of heroism No No The South was the first to defy Englandand furnished more soldiers according to military population than the north South Carolina alone furnished more men thanNew Hampshirethough she had a smaller military popu J lation the South was the first to cross the mountians and attack V agr gressive element in the war of 1812 and in the war with Mex Ijico there were fortyfive thous Southkousand fiSfrofla the north history does not crec6rct parallel to thepatriotism if the southern armies duringthe 3or-s AfSra IFr ii y sixties and southern soldiers distinguished themselves in our re cent war with Spain Why then is it that the South so rich in materials for an abundant and valuable literature has placed so few productions in the schoolbooks of this country The answer is comparatively easy Before the war the South was strictly Agricultural Her farms were very large She had no literary centers Her cities were few and far apart Her people were indifferent to popu lar education She did not en courage home talent but rather insisted that the proper place for the Southern gentleman was on the farm where he could direct the efforts of a multitude of slaves And where one was so bold as to offer to become an author it simply meant poverty and self sacrifice But the war came on The farmsIwere devastated and the South was forced to adjust herself to her surroundings And as the social compact began to adjust itself to the new order of things authors began to receive encouragement at home It is true that much that is being written is intrinsically worthless but ambi tion and multiplied efforts are producing some meritorious works The South is rapidly be coming a manufacturing center southern cities are becoming lit erary centers publishing houses are paying good dividends and southern genius is becoming to appreciated by southern readers There is yet one thing that is lacking in the great struggle of the South to attain the standard to which she is justly entitled It is this Our schools both pub doingItheir duty in teaching the histo ry and literature of the South Yes notwithstanding the fact that they cruelly neglect us and even throw insults in our face most of our readers histories and other literature still comes from the North Why this is true I am unable to say It must be that we have been classed as illiterate semibarbarous beings so long that we concur in suchclassification But let us awake to the situationand exam ine some of the stuff we have been teaching our children The Eucyclopedia Britannica which is regarded everywhere as high authority has this to say of us Vol 1 page 719 The attractive culture of the South has been limited in extent and degree The hothouse fruit of weath and liesure it has never struck its roots deeply into na tive soil Since the Revolution days when Virginia was the nurse of Statesmen the few thinkers of America born south of Mason and Dixons line outnumbered by those belonging to the single State of Massachusetts have commonly emigrated to IsTew York or Boston in search of a university trainning In the theiSouthern states haveshneby reflected light Nor is it to much to say that mainly by their con nection with the north the Caro linas have been saved from sink ing to the level of Mexico and theautilles Teachers friends t Think of the South that section which for the first sixty four years of our national life futx Preside- ntfifty two yr moetofthe IJ 1F Ar i t i j cabinet officers and the chief justice from 1801 to 1895clos ed asa semibarbarous people saved only by northern civiliza tion and we have made no protests against these misrepresentations for so long that the out side world has begun to repeat them to our very great injury What shall we do Shall we hold Our p9ace and await a northern chronicler to write our true history No they will never do it We must do that ourselves The boys and girls of the South must be tought the true history of the South They should be come familiar with the literature of the South with its songs its poems its civilization both men andall its suffering during and subsequent to the civil war and its rapid recuperation since Instead of permitting them to believe that their forefathers were either imbeciles or traitors let us teach them to love and to hold sacred the history valor and patriotism of the Old South Let them know that the first impor tant railroad in the world travers ed the Carolinas that the first steamer to cross the ocean cleared from Savannah that Fitch and not Fulton invented the steamboat that the first college for girls was opened in Georgia that no naturalist surpassed Au dubon that no geographer equal ed money that it was a South erner tcwit Crawford Long who gave to the world the price less blessing of anaesthesia and that Sims and McDonald led the world of surgery in their respec tive lines And again it is our duty to see to it that our history and litera ture are properly placed before the world And can we do this by procuring our data from Northern writers and publishers No and I am very much surpris ed to know that those in authori ty would put a book in the hands of the children of Kentucky that would teach them that it was Franklin who wrote the Declaration of Independence But if you are acquainted with the third reader now in use in our schools you know this is true and theI chances are that in a few more years we will have Adams classed as the Father of this countJYI I repeat it we cannot afford to have our school books and dato furnished by northern writers and publishers If they do not totally ignore us they neglect us Thus the Colum bian Encyclopedia consisting of 32 volumes gives more space to John Brown running hispedij gree back to Peter Brown who came over in the Mayflower than to Jefferson Davis the sol dier Statesman and president Another standard Encyclopedia gives six lines on General Kirby Smith the teacher soldier and patriot and more than a column on John L Sullivan of Boston Even so excellent and widelyI used textbook as Ha Lemmons American Litera WaltjWhitman anIIdlerall combined Even the histories Yan now used in our schools not only neglect but cruelly misrepresent us and yet we lay supinely on our backs and hug the delusive ptianton of hope that the north will yet furnish a just chronicler a true hktorian of Ctlrpeople Butre should not put ourfaith 1 t s if Yj i y i in dead works It is time weI were working and I am glad to know that the South is awakening from its lethargy that men- geniuneand women of ability of patriotism and love for the truth are in modest tones asking the world to consider the true his tory of the South The old South and Old Virginia by Thomas Nelson Page The New FreeIand Father Ryan should be taught to every Southern Youth Southern Literature by Miss Louis Manley is worthy of a place in every Southern school The Southern States of the American Union by Dr J L M Curry is another book that we should enthusiastically sup port It gives in a concise man the history of the Southern colo- nies the part they performed in the establishment of freedom of thought of the press and of conscience for themselves and posteritytheir wisdom is counsel their valor in the field and their patriotism everywhereI And now Mrs Superintendent I wish to see this literature put in the intermediate department of all of our schools I say intermediate department because there are more children in the second third and fourth reader grades than in all other depart ments and the greatest number possible should have this litera ture taught them Children in compretlh- have named and teachers if we cannot use them otherwise let us by all means use them as supplementary readers iAnother reason for teaching this literature to small children is that it is so full of parental love and filial devotion themes that delight them It is but a reflection of the people it at tempts to describe and is full of sincerety justice patriotism and conservatism It magnifies home where mother is queen and sister sacred It delights in trayal of farm scenes of wavingI fields yellow with grain or white with cotton of green pastures made more cheerful by frolicing lambs of the perfect order and system of farm work of the mer ry contented slaves as they went to their work in the morning with songs on their lips or as they made their quarters lively at night with the banjo and that double shuffle which only a negro can dance to perfection and now please allow me to digress just a moment to say that southern lit erature gives tHe best History that can be found of slavery It rehearses the almost forgotten fact that the North was parti cip criminis with the South inj introducing and profiting by the slave trade that the southern colonies repeatedly protested and went on record in their legislative assemblies against the slave trade that when the first votei was taken in the Federal Con gress to prohibit the further importation of slaves Virginia voted in the affirmative and New Hampshire Massachusetts and Connecticut f in the negative Slavery as an institution can j not be defended but I want its true history taught to the chip dren of our firesides 4want them to know that as a rule the negro slave was well fed well clothed wdl nuriecl when sick that he hathe focpefrpreaclied ht J n4ifr t toimandbecathecjvj1jzed for the first time since the dawn of creatien I am glad to note that the South is reading and investigating more and keeping a better system of records than ever be fore in her history Hawthorne and Lemmon say We have been hearing more from the South of late and are likely to hear more in the future indeed it is more than possible that another generation may find us receiving our best literature from that part of our country We are beginning to realize our want of a true history for we have been most grievously mis represented and unless we see to our vindication we shall be judgedas charged So teachers let us do our duty teaching the history and literature of the South Let us stop trying to toichildren whose minds are not sufficently matured to compre hend these authors But rather let us support our home authors whom we have so cruelly neg lected The United States Corn missioner of Education said re cently that southern poets had written poems which the nations could not forget and that our prose writers had written things as great as was ever written by Browning and yet Poe received RavenIsweet gentle spirit o f Lamer fought against poverty until deathrelieved his sufferings OHara wrote Bivouac of the Dead to celebrate southern heroes Yet it has been selected by the North as the most fit poem sleepingI WashingI The South is yet rich in materials far rich and rare fiction The negro with his darkey ways lifeJtaineer with isolated home and simple wants are characters worthy of the pen of a Scott or a Dickens The mountain scenery of Kentucky Virginia North Cariolina and Tennessee the balmy breezes from the gulf the orangeIgroves dense forests musical with feathery songsters and skies rivaling those of Italy must inspire the poet and stimulate the novelist So now in conclusion let me beg you to find a place in your schools for southern literature Encourage your pupils to read the authors I have mentioned and also the lives of Lee and Stonewall Jackson This is a duty we owe to the old South whose glory will yet emerge from the shadows of an unfor tunate war It is a duty we owe to ourselves and to the rising generation who will judge us and the generation now passing away and will accurately write our history And in doing this work let us have as our guiding star the motto of Abraham Lin coin With malace toward none with charity for all Kills Her roe of 20 Years iThe most merciless enemy I had for years declares Mrs James Duncan of Hayneayille Me was Dyspepsia I

Address read by R 1 Camp V bell Before the Teachers As sociation Held at Antioch Oct 209 Mrs Superintendent Fellow Teachers Ladies and Gentlemen It gives me much pleasure to come before you today for the purpose of discussing one of the most important subjects that could occupy the minds of the people Literature in the Public Schools It is a subject worthy of the eloquence of a Demos alBryanme for awhile I will endeavor to make a few suggestions which I trust will be helpful to you in the training of children and thus placing our standard on a higher l planeWhen I speak of literature I mean Southern Literature be cause we are of the South are interested in the welfare of the South and should be familiar with the Literature of the South I must confess that I do not know much about literature and j what little I do know has been learned out of school I find that our schools and most of our teachers are intensely southern but southern literature has no place in the cirriculum and South ern authors have but few ex i pounders But as my experi ence is confined wholly to recent v years and Southern Liturature truly had its beginning in the V Antibellum days I must not confine myself to the narrow channel of expereince Before Ff v the war as now all of our read- ers histories and in fact all of our schoolbooks came from the L north theywwere full of the best literature to be obtained from classic Greece and Rome from Europerfrom the British Isles from the Northern States but there was y3 x seldom a poem a story or an Lv oration from a Southern author 7j Thus Southern authors were not mentioned except perhaps incij- t Id nta IIIWhy is it that the South did not and does not yet have her share of representation in the schoolbooks and other publica J tions 9this country Is it for want of culture No for the southern gentleman is a classical- I holar and the southern lady a queen of grace and refinement Is it for want intellectual vigi or No forthe thinkers of the South rival those of all the rest of the world Fertile soil bonnli teous harvests and an industdI- ous population forbid the intima tion that she is financially unable r9a111t be because she is wanting in deeds of heroism No NOI The South was the first to defy England and furnished more v soldiers according to military population than the north South Carolina alone furnished more men thanNew Hampshire though she had a smaller military popu lation the South was the first to Across the mountians and attack the Indians she was the ag igressive element in the war of f 1812 and in the war with Mex ffeico there were fortyfive thous j Tand volunteers from the South 3r juid only twentythree thousand frorr din not it r t cord1 a parallel to the patriotism J goftthe t southern armies during the j d n9dt tlij17 r t J sixties and southern soldiers distinguished themselves in our re cent war with Spain Whythen is itthat the South so rich in materials for an abundant and valuable literature has placedso few productions in the schoolbooks of this country The answer is comparatively easy Before the war the South i was strictly Agricultural Her farms were very large She had no literary centers Her cities were few and far apart Her people were indifferent to popu lar education She did not en courage home talent but rather insisted that the proper place for the Southern gentleman was on the farm where he could direct the efforts of a multitude of slaves And where one was so bold as to offer to become an au thor it simply meant poverty and self sacrifice But the war came on The slaves were freed The farms were devastated and the South was forced to adjust herself to her surroundings And as the social compact began to adjust itself to the new order of things authors began to receive encour agement at home It is true that much that is being written is intrinsically worthless but ambi tion and multiplied efforts JIare producing some meritorious works The South is rapidly be coming a manufacturing center southern cities are becoming lit erary centers publishing houses are paying good dividends and southern genius is becoming to appreciated by southern readers There is yet one thing that is lacking in the great struggle of the South to attain the standard to which she is justly entitled It is this Our schools both pub lie and private are not doing their duty in teaching the histo ry and literature of the South Yes notwithstanding the fact that they cruelly neglect us an even throw insults in our face most of our readers histories and other literature still comes from the North Why this is true I am unable to say It must be that we have been class ed as illiterate semibarbarous beings so long that we concur in such classification But let us awake to the situation and examine some of the stuff we have been teaching our children The Eucyclopedia Britannica which is regarded everywhere as high authority has this to say of us Vol 1 page 719 The attractive culture of the South has been limited in extent and degree The hothouse fruit of weath and liesure it has never struck its roots deeply into na tive soil- Since the Revolution days when Virginia was the nurse of Statesmen the few thinkers of America born south of Mason and Dixons line outnumbered by those belonging to the single State of Massachusetts have commonly emigrated to New- York or Boston in search of a university trainning In the world of letters at least the Southern states have shone by re Ieflected light Nor is it to much that plainly by their con nection with the north the Carolina have been saved from sinking to the level of Mexico and the autilles Teachers friends Think of the South that sectionwhich for- eth first sixty four years of our national life furn sbedtheJreai1 dent fifty two year moist jfthe tvvv Vvi7Y AV 5 rvr Avfe fev r Vv J H fJ cabinet officers and the chief justice from 1801 to 1895clos ed as a semibarbarous people saved only by northern civilization and we have made no pro tests against these misrepresen tations for so long that the out side world has begun to repeat them to our very great injury What shall we do Shall we hold Our pease and await a northern chronicler to write our true history No they will never do it We must dothat ourselves The boys and girls of the South must be tought the true history of the South They should become familiar with the literature of the South with its songs its poems its civilization both men and all its suffering during and subsequent to the civil war and its rapid recuperation since In stead of permitting them to be lieve that their forefathers were either imbeciles or traitors let us teach them to love and to hold sacred the history valor and patriotism of the Old South Let them know that the first impor tant railroad in the world travers ed the Carolinas that the first steamer to cross the ocean clear ed from Savannah that Fitch and not Fulton invented the steamboat that the first college for girls was opened in Georgia that no naturalist surpassed Au dubon that no geographer equal ed money that it was a South erner tcwit Crawford Long who gave to the world the price less blessing of anaesthesia and that Sims and McDonald led the world of surgery in their respec Live lines Andagain it is our duty to see to it that our history and litera ture are properly placed before the world And can we do this by procuring our data from Northern writers and publishers No and I am very much surpris ed to know that those in authori dt3 would put a book in the hands of the children of Kentucky that would teach them that it was Franklin who wrote the Declara tion of Independence But if you are acquainted with the third reader now in use in our schools you know this is true and the chances are that in a few more years we will have Adams classed as the Father of this country I repeat it we cannot afford to have our school books and dato furnished by northern writers and publishers If they do not totally ignore us they neglect us Thus the Colum bian Encyclopedia consisting of 32 volumes gives more space to John Brown running his pedi gree back to Peter Brown who came over in the Mayflower than to Jefferson Davis the sol dier Statesman and president Another standard Encyclopedia gives six lines on General Kirby Smith the teacher soldier and patriot and more than a column on John L Sullivan of Boston Even soexcellent and widely used textbook as Hawthorn and Lemmons American Litera ture gives more space to Walt Whitman than to Sydney Lainer Thomas Nelson Page Joel Chan dler Harris Paul Hayne John EastenCooke and Father jJyan all combined Even the histories now used in our schools not only neglect but cruelly misrepresent us and yet we lay supinely on our backs and hug the delusive phantoniof hope that the north will yet furnish aVjustVchronicler a true hiitorkrt of ouirpcople BuVwe should notepul our faith t eF 1 iji in dead works It is time we were working and I am glad to know that the South is awakening from its lethargy that men and women of ability of geniune patriotism and love for the truth are in modest tones asking the world to consider the true his tory of the South The old South and Old Virginia by Thomas Nelson Page The New FreeIand Father Ryan should be taught to every Southern Youth Southern Literature by Miss Louis Manley is worthy of a place in every Southern school The Southern States of the American Union by Dr J L M Curry is another book that we should enthusiastically support It gives in a concise man the history of the Southern colonies the part they performed in the establishment of freedom of thought of the press and of andItheir valor in the field and their patriotism everywhere And now Mrs Superintendent I wish to see this literature put in the intermediate department of all of our schools I say intermediate department because there are more children in the second third and fourth reader grades than in all other depart ments and the greatest number possible should have this litera inIhend the most of the authors I have named and teachers if we cannot use them otherwise let us by all means use them as sup plementary readers teachin9iis that it is so full of parental love and filial devotion themes that abreflection of the people it at tempts to describe and is full of sincerety justice patriotism and conservatism It magnifies home where mother is queen and sister sacred It delights in the por wavingIwith cotton of green pastures made more cheerful by frolicing lambs of the perfect order and system of farm work of the merry contented slaves as they went to their work i n the morning with songs on their lips or as they made their quarters lively lat night with the banjo and that double shuffle which only a negro can dance to perfection and now please allow me to digress just a moment to say that southern literature gives tHe best history that can be found of slavery It rehearses the almost forgotten fact that the North was parti cip criminis with the South in introducing and profiting by the slave trade that the southern colonies repeatedly protested and went on record in their legisla slaveItrade that when the first vote was taken in the Federal Congress to prohibit the further im portation of slaves Virginia voted in the affirmative and New Hampshire Massachusetts and Connecticut in the negative Slavery as an institution can not be defended but I want its true history taught to the chip flren of our firesides I want them to know that asrule the negro slave was well fadwell clothed well nursed when sick that he had she gospel reached- fi 4 r tff ito him and became civilized for the creatien first time since the dawn of I am glad to note that the South is reading and investigat ing more and keeping a better system of records than ever be fore in her history Hawthorne and Lemmon say We have been hearing more from the South of late and are likely to hear more in the future indeed it is more than possible that another generation may find us receiving our best literature from that part of our country We are beginning to realize our want of a true history for we have been most grievously mis represented and unless we see to our vindication we shall be judged as charged So teachers let us do our duty teaching the history and literature of the South Let us stop trying to teach Shakespeare or Milton to children whose minds are not sufficently matured to compre hend these authors But rather let us support our home authors whom we have so cruelly neg lected The United States Corn missioner of Education said re cently that southern poets had written poems which the nations could not forget and that our prose writers had written things as great as was ever written by Browning and yet Poe received RavenIsweet gentle spirit o f Lamer fought against poverty until deathrelieved his sufferings OHara wrote Bivouac of the Dead to celebrate southern he- roes Yet it has been selected by the North as the most fit poem to celebrate their own sleeping dead and it may be seen in the- national cemetery at Washington The South is yet rich in materials far rich and rare fiction The negro with his darkey ways lifeJtaineer with isolated home and simple wants are characters worthy of the pen of a Scott or a Dickens The mountain scenery iof Kentucky Virginia North Cariolina and Tennessee the balmy breezes from the gulf the orangeIgroves dense forests musical with feathery songsters and skies rivaling those of Italy must inspire the poet and stimulate the novelist So now in conclusion let me- beg you to find a place in your schools for southern literature Encourage your pupils to read the authors I have mentioned and also the lives of Lee and Stonewall Jackson This is a duty we owe to the old South whose glory will yet emerge from the shadows of an unfortunate war It is a duty we owe to ourselves and to the rising generation who will judge us and the generation now passing away and will accurately write our history And in doing this work let us have as our guiding Lintwith charity for all Kills Her roe of 20 Years cThe most merciless enemy I

a happy good morning and walk in and chat awhile As I have often told my delin quet visiting friends while visit wasntfr returned soon I would come again and so on But they would usually come then at once you know But not so in this case I made quite a quick trip through Adair county through the paper I mean and not a single one has visited me yet Well all right to use my old adage Ill just come again Since Ive been in N Dakota Ive seen three of the seasons l with their winds the sunshine r and their rains Ive seen fields of seeded grain grow andripen The farmers harvest the crop the many thousands of bushels of grain shipped off to feed the thousands of people While my dear old Dixie Land is the place of flowers and fruit and dear good people this is surely the land of biscuits We have had a beautiful Fall but grim old winter has just about come and we may fix our selves pretty soon to follow after I the Polar Bear fashion iehiber nate for the winter with the ex ception that the Polar Bear dont have to eat in winter conse quently no cooking is required You men now laugh You know the women dwell heavily upon the cooking question Well all right that we do Just ask the men what they think about it that is if they have something like it to do You will at once hear a pitiful howl start up all over the globe By the way I would like Dr J C Gose of Knifleyto give in his experience of house keeping I think he has some modern ways far ahead of the old time way He thinks that even with his improved way nothing can be very much of an incentive especially on churn day When my good friend Dr 0 M Kelsey of Elkhorn is direct ing things down at Frankfort I am going to persuade him to pass a bill giving all of the cook ing women over certain ages a pension for life and a free trip to Europe or some good restful clime where they may spend a t few halcyone days away from the clatter and din of a busy life What do you say Dr You know r Ive had perfect faith in you as a doctor I once thought while a child Only to touch the hem of your garment and I would be made whole- Now my good sisters as we know the doctors are supposed i to be the wisest set on earth po sessing

make us feel our inferiority and sometimes we almost believe it But not so says he and says I We find imperfections every where Now you teachers who are lamenting over the little fiI na vial pile try

FOOTBAllI More Brutal Than ciares the BYRNEDe DISCUSSES FATE OF Only One Man to Fight In the Ring on the Gridiron Its Eleven He Says Would Ask Referee to Stop Bout Be fore Hed Smash a Man Nearly Out Jim Jeffries the pugilist who is matched to meet Jack Johnson for the heavyweight championship of the world has a few warm words to say about college football He commented on the fate of Cadet Eugene A Byrne who died from injuries received in th Harvard and West Point game As usual it was necessary to corkscrew a few answers out of him before his tongue began to work freely Hold on said he quickly Im a fighter Maybe I ought not to have any opinions about football It isnt my game Im not supposed to know anything about it Well yes Ive been reading the papers Tell me on the level have they killed seven boys already this year Thats serious No joke about that kindof a I guess Now thenIYou can say that Im against any game that kills seven boys while its only warming up you might say That sort of a game isnt worth while No game that kills men as a regular thing is worth while Women Abhor Prizefighters There have always been a lot ofI men in this country who stand up on their hind legs and roar about the brutality of the boxing game Their wom en will pull their skirts away from a prizefighter as if he was some sort of an animal yet these same people go out to a football game and yell themselves black in the face at an exhibi tion thats too rough for men who fight for a living The women too Yes sir Ive seen em and I know Football is all right eh Its fashionable game Society stands forj it yet in the old bare knuckle days when men pickled their hands in brine for weeks before a fight there wa never anything to compare with th roughness and the brutality of this nice social game This will make a lot of people sore but Ill tell why I think football is more brutal than boxing yes you c call it prizefighting if you want to When a man goes into the ring h knows he has only got to whip ou man to one man The siInessyou Went Down For the Count I saw in the paper this afternoon that just before this poor cadet was hurt he had been in a smashup and went down for the count He was game and he got up again and to his place What did they wentI They directed the attack e weak place the paper says In other words all those big husky fellows smashed into this boy who was still groggy and they got They can send all himIcondolence they doesnt bring him back They the whole line on him and they piledI when they knew he was weak not in shape They did it because he was weak Why Id be ashamed to smash a man as hard as I could when I knew he was nearly out Id ask the referee tbstop the fight before Id do that Heres another reason why football is a bad business In a fight if a man gets a clip on the jaw and goes down and cant get up again in ten seconds hes done He doesnt have to take any snore punishment In a game they give a man two footballI come back If they had some thips never He would have been out of the game vrhen ha was stunned the first time Risk Everything For Nothing Heres another thing that strikes me Most of the boys who play foot ball are only kids They havent their growth or their full strength They go in there and get slammed around and they cannot stand it They dont get a thing out of it if they win Bo you suppose all the rahrah business in the world could make up the loss of one boyto his folk They risk everything for nothing Let em holler about fighting being brutal Ill tell you something if prizefighting should kill fifteen me in one year every legislature in the country would put the game out of dohThis talk about boxing being brutal and football being a fine game makes me sick If I had asofiTdsend M into the ring to fight one man at a time before Id let him tlnto one of those harnesses andr take his chances with eleven fellows Yes and hed lose a decision to me the first time he began to talk football There seems to be no question about the way Jim Jeffries stands on the question of college football ChicgerChicago foc an extensive sHbwayv ETgtwirof ralljfayr to coat X50000000 4 r J jSJt J HORSE SHOW FEATURES Novel Striking

The man with a grouch is the most undesirable animal on the farm This point alone is enough to justify the plowing of land in the fallWhen man is a success he claims the credit when he is a failure he finds some woman to blame for it We are inclined to think that heaven will be given to those who are trying to make a heaven on this earth Where droughts are common it is desirable to have plant roots go as deep as possible Irelands average annual ex ortation amounts to approxi poulI try 5000000 While fall plowing does not entirely wipe out all the cutworms that may be in the ground it will greatly lessen their number The manures in the surface soil are disintegrated and some of them are washed down to the depth the frost has gone According to a report of the United States Department of
