6 Words tf Comfort Columbia Ky Dec 7 1910 Cousin Jo Coffey and family In the death of young Jo JCoff y I desire to say all Columbia is mourning Jo as his relations and friends called Jo him had more good qualities and more at good friends than any young man of my acquaintance He had the most J brilliant mind and was the finest conversationalist of his age I ever t- He was always friendly and never with out a word of goodwill of cheer for those he come in contact withthose who were so fortunate as to make his acquaintance and spend a short time in his presence were ever after that glad that they had met him He was said to be the finest business man in Central Kentucky His good P qualities and they could not be num bered so predominated in his makeup that any defect he might have and wean of have some of one kind and some of another that his good qualities over shadowedit to that extent that we hardly noticed it His fine looks his cheerful disposition and bis friendly meeting with all people made him a welcome HisIdfriend and relation that I was proudof I had looked forward andexpected great things from him but death sud denly came when no one expected it The Lord in his loving kindness and tender mercies understands why he was taken so young We do not but one thing we do know that the Lord has never turned a deaf ear to his people who desire his salvation and I have the greatest faith that Jo was saved and by our blessed Savior who was never known to refuse any one who called on him and especially those who had believed on and accepted Him and publicly confessed him by word Qr by attaching himself to the church May the Lord remember us all in mercy and enable us to live m that manner and faith that we will all meet him in a better land where we will not have to say goodbye to our loved ones and friends I assure you I mourn with you in your loss of such a good boy A Relative RESOLUTIONS Paper adopted by the Presbyterian Sunday School of Columbia in memory of

1910 in the opinion of Prof Els worth Regenstein State Super intendentof Public Instruction Y f1 JHegives figures to show that thee has been a decided falling f off in the number of negroes in 1I Kentucky during the last ten j years and says he believes this i jz explains the small gain made by ksthe State The trend of the ne groes toward the cities explains i the believes the falling offofi many of the counties which show pa decrease in population Sher c man Ball Assistant Secretary of State has made an analysis of the census returns by counties fnd he also gives the same ex planation He points out that the night rider troubles have had but little to do with the loss as the counties where there was the largest falling off hdno night riding at any time The figures given by Prof Regenstein are interesting The statement that the negroes are going to the cities will not ac recount for the failing off in school Census as the figures are for the whole State including the cities vThe following figures offer a basis fqr comparison School census for 1900 White 1 628025 colored 101777 School census for 1910 White 0557928 coloree 88117 This shows that while there ir 28903 more white children i negroes1trhe oodratewhile the negroes have fallen off at about the same rate j tthkt the whites gained It can not he said that t he figures are inaccurate as the census is taken no more carefully now than1 it was ten bears agoand theI figures are for the total number of chjldren of school age andnot J the total enrollment f There has also been a trend of 5ij the negro toward the cities asjs shown by the figures for rural schools In 1900 there were 76 562 negro school children in the 4- L rural schools that is outside of the cities In 1910 there were only 59900 negroes of school age- in the rural district outside of Xthe cities This shows that the It jniral schools lost 16682 negroes t jn the ten years as compared 5ith a loss for the whole State c 0f13 650S SIthink the decrease in the inumber of negroes is the real ex iplanation of the reasonfor the Ipoor j showing made by this 41ate said Prof Regenstein f f C Christrnasand Mistletoe a J I A great many years ago bej

the short est days the Druids prepared a Slturningback as the days began to grow longer t This second celebration was quite naturally the happiest time the people holding the sun in such fear in June It was the mistletoe was honored as being the very essence of the oak When eventually the church was estabilshed and its followers turned the ancient December celebration into Christmas the1 mistletoe was hung up by way1 of compromise although it had nothing to do with the new religion And so even today in our use of evergreen and holly and eke the occational sprig of mistletoe we reflect the nature worship which gave us perhaps not only the foundation of ourC Christmas but for our love of nature as well No Jurisdiction in Kentucky Case Washington Nov 28Leav ing to one side the question as

lines for the bene Ifitof the community which it No other agency can or will do this Tne localeditor in proportion to his means does more for his town than any other ten men and in fairness man withman he ought to be supported not because you happent- to like him or admire his yvrt but because a local paper lings best investment a commu ity can make It may not be brilliant or crowded with great thoughts but financially it is more of a benefit to a community than a preacher or a teacher Un derstand us now we do not mean morally or intellectually but financially and yet on the moral question you will find the theIany men on earth Subscribe for your local paper not as a charity buttas an investment Ballot Reform The shorter ballot organization is maklngprogress and increasing its membrship From a comparatively few it now num iS bers about eight thousand and they are agitating the question with all their might and main in the newspapers of the country and before the Legislatures Bal lots have continued to grow in size until at the recent South Dakota election they were seven feet long and fourteen inches wide In addition to the candidates of four parties which em braced some thin g over fifty names six constitutional amend ments and six referendum laws had to be voted on taking many minutes for each voter while the ballots themselves required huge boxes especially construCt- ed for their their reception Such acumbersome method of voting must be changed and in Kentucky especially the devices Theyare1aman who doesnt know how to vote except to mark under a rooster or alog cabin should not be allowed to cast his ballotI toIdooverthe same time can see nothing wrong in permitting a lot of ignorant men be they white or black who only know how to exercise the right of suffrage be cause they have just sufficient intelligence to recognize the diff erence between the picture of a rooster and a house Surely in this country there is noexcuse for people not knowing how to read and an educational qualification sufficient at leastfora man to read his ballot Ja not too much to ask In Virginia Jfbr instance the names of all the candidates are

cornstalks in the field is still practiced in some localities and its wastefulness does not seem to be understood While stalks may have but little value as manure they have a good deal in the pro duction of humus and farming on land devoid of humus is a heartbreaking proposition The cutting and plowing under of the stalks involve no more labor than do the breaking and burning while the former

population of Kentucky since 1900 In other words Kentucky in the last ten years has stood still It is a disagreeable fact to face but it isa fact that must be faced if the story of the next ten years itis not to be even less to our liking Further more there is reason for it or it wouldnot exist The year 1900 saw the assassi nation of William Goebel and the Scate capital turned for weeks into an armed camp The years of 1901 and 1902 saw the State torn by the Goebel trials with party lines lines of battle In 1903 the assassination of Mar cum brought Breathitt county to the front as Kentuckys most widely advertised possession Ill 1906 night riding was begun and continuedwithout interference from local or State administra tions I n 1907 the towns o f Princeton Russellville and Hop kinsville were raided by masked and armed men and property valuedat hundreds of thousands of dollars was burned In 1909 night riding ceased for the time being because the night riders had accomplished what they set- out to do There is nothing to prevent its resumption whenever night riders feel that the occa sion invites it The men accused of the assassination of William oebel have been pardoned The night riders have gone unpunished Feudal war ended in Breathitt when Hargis was killed by his own sonThe census of 1900 showed the native whiteborn population of Kentucky to be fortythird i n the descending scale of literacy Not until 1906 was legislation en acted looking to a betterment of this condition It is too early for the effect of this legislation to be fully realized Few of the counties in Ken tucky have good roads In the General Assembly of 1910 good roads bills were defeated Not until 1910 were Kentuckys prisons and prison system placed on an equality with those of other States in the matter of theory only Practically both are more inadequate tot h e- States needs than they were a century ago- Kentucky had in 1900 and has in 1910 a tax system which puts a penalty on progress Every effort to change it had been suc cessfuliy opposed by the Legis lature Kentuckys farm lands are as goodas those of Indiana and Ohio The latest Government report shows that Kentucky rais es an average of twentyfive bushels of corn to the acre compared with an average of forty- a n d thirtynine in the other States named Railroad development in Kentucky in the past ten years has been at a minimum in compari son with other Southern States though in pal and other minerals and in natural resources Kenr tucky stands on a par with the most favored These too are facts no less than the fact that the

alike by the Catholic Protestant and Greek churches as the nativity of Christ yet nobody knows if it is the actual date The uncertainty is due to the ChristiansIa custom as heathenish and made no exception even to the Saviors birthday It was not until Christianity had triumphed three centuries later that the prejudice against the observance of birthdays died out and an investigation as to the date of Christs birthday was begun Julius pope or bishop of Rome asked St Cyril in 386 to ascer tain the real anniversary of the nativity St Cyril reported the date to be December 25th to the best of his knowledge after ex tensive research and the dat proImulgated as the anniversary o Christs birth Before the end of the fifth century the date wa accepted by all Christendom January 6th April 20th March 20th and March 29th are some of the dates that were serious con tenders for the distinction be fore December 25th received the seal oi Julius approval Even after the date was gen erally accepted by all Christia- nations the holiday had its struggles The English roundhea- parliment of 1643 abolished Christmas and for 12 years it w snot observed in England Royalty gained the ascendency however

name Judge Alton B Parker of New York to succeed Justice Moody on the Su preme Bench The appointment would be a most acceptable one and would reflect great credit on the President as Judge Parker is a jurist of great ability and a Democrat of decided convictions However it is too muchto ex pect of the President He would not do anything so repugnant to Colonel Roosevelt unless his courage to do the proper thing is greater than his fear of enmity of the man who made his nomi nation and election possible Judge Parker will never be an associate justice by the appoint ment of Mr Taft who is a large man in other ways than physi cally but not large enough for that Lexington Herald In the olden times the farm was a general loafing place in the winter The farmer loafed at the store or smith shop the cows loafed in the stable as the milk pails proved the horses loafed and grew soft and fat in their stalls and the very hens loafed on the roost waiting for spring before beginning to lay eggs A wonderful awakening has come The modern farmer is on the job every day of the winter the cows are doing their best to provide plenty of fifty cent butter and the cheerful cackle of the hens on these

an inmate at the peni tentiary for from ten to eighteen years for having stolen 1400 000 If he serves ten years he serves at the rate of 140000 a year I In cases like this the law must confess failure If a man is a thief of the Ropke type and knows that a man can steal a mammoth fortune and get a comparatively light sentencethe odds are that he will be a model prisoner and get oufat the end of the minimum termthere is a temptation in the opportunity There must be a great many crooks in the world who would like to steal 1000000 and serve asapenIaltycash and enjoy it afterwards There are rumors that Ropke still has the major portion of the money he stole from the Fidelity Trust Company If he has he may get out of prison at the age of fifty with a much larger for tune than he could have made

been killed in Barren and the adjoining counties by eating Paris green Since the introduction of Paris green to kill tobacco worms there has been a great falling off of both turkeys and chickens in that section The fowls go into the tobacco patches and eat the poisoned worms from which they die It is more noticeable this season than ever before known because of the large crop of to bacco sprayed
