For the number enrolled put down the number who have started to school, whether present daily or not. For the attendance by grades I would give the average daily attendance for each. The total would have to agree with the total of the first item. To get the attendance based on the census, find out from the trustee the number of children of school age in your district, then take your average daily attend-- , ance, add two ciphers and divide it by the census number.

T Quite a number of friends and relatives gathered at the home of Mr. Virgil Hurt last Satur day, with well filled baskets in opening of the Panama Canal caused the War Department to issue a statement explaining the plain, prosaic fact that sea water on either side of the isthmus will get no further than the entrances of the great water way. "To those who know the engineering features," said the state ment, "this idea is rather amusing, so far as the canal is con cerned the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific will never mingle. The Gatun Lake, which is midway of the canal, has an elevation of eighty-fiv- e feet above the oceans, and water from the lake will merely flow each way to the two oceans, the water from the lake being fresh and derived from the drainage of the surrounding area." The statement also explained that the blowing up of the Gam-bo- a dike on October 10 will not permit the passage of even a row boat from ocean to ocean, as it wjll be necessary to complete the removal of the dike by dredgring and then to dredge out the Cuca- racha slide before the canal will be opened from end to end.

We were not very near an enemy and kept out no vedettes or pickets, the colonel being satisfied with the usual chain of sentinels. There was one sentry beat overlooking a valley from which every man posted at the evening relief disappeared. No cry, no sound of any kind, was heard at post No. 8, but the sentry placed there was not found when the corporal of the guard took a man to relieve him, nor was he ever heard of afterward. Some concluded that an enemy crawled p from below, stabbed him and took his body away. Some concluded tu- -t the post was haunted and the sentry was carried away by a ghost. When the first man disappeared the officer of the guard reported the matter to the colonel, who, thinking that it would be better that the next man to stand post on No. 8 should not know of the occurrence, ordered the officer to keep the matter a secret and if there were inquiries about the missing man among his comrades to give out that he had been ordered away on a special service. So the second man did not know of the mystery of the first, nor the third of the second, nor the fourth of the third. The fourth man was the last to vanish, for after he had gone the regiment went to the front. I was a member of Company C, and we knew more about the disappearances than the officers thought we did. but we didn't know what had become of the sentries. It was the prevailing opinion that the men were murdered by hostile Spanish citizens, but with what object we were ignorant. After the war closed I came north with the rest of the command, but eight years later went to Cuba on business, and there one day, while passing a sugar plantation, who should I see sitting before a workman's cabin but John Hen. derson, the last man who had disappeared from sentry post No. S. At first he pretended not to know me, but I looked him square in the eye anli told him he couldn't fool me. Then he told me the following story: "When placed on post and left by the retreating relief T stood for awhile uncertain whether to risk death by some unearthly means or by being shot for deserting my beat "While I was deliberating I heard a girl's laugh' and, looking down, saw a merry face and two black eyes peering up at me. The girl had a basket on her arm full of flowers and began to pelt me with them. I supposed she was simply passing that way and didn't connect her with the ghost who had spirited away the other sentries. I seized one or two posies and threw them back at her. She was too pretty to keep at a distance, and I invited her to come up and sit with me on the slope. It wasn't long before I had my arms around her and stole a kiss. "She spoke some English ana, pointing to a house below, told me she was on her way to a dance to take place there. We soon heard the sound of music, and the girl begged me to go down with her. have a dance and get back before the relief came. I was tempted and fell. I went with her, danced several times and was thinking of returning when I was surrounded and made-- prisoner. "They were about to take me out to shoot me when the girl who had arranged for my capture stood in the door and jabbered Spanish at them with constantly growing irritation. I didn't know then what she said, but learned afterward that, having given them three victims, she wished the fourth to be spared. Finally she prevailed, partly hy threats to expose them to our troops above and partly by her influence over them. I was released and, accompanied by the girl, started up tocamp. I had plenty of time to getvthere, but was dallying with her, she showing plainly enough that she had gone daft on ma I tried to tear myself away from her, but couldn't. I knew she had betrayed three other men, but her preference for me caught me, and while I was trying to get away from her I heard the relief visit my post. Then I knew I was too late, for if I went to camp I would be shot for being absent from my post "That threw the whole matter into the hands of the girl. It was the same as having sold my soul to the devil. I deserted, and we went away together. She deserted, too, for she never went back home. Her people, were Spaniards, and the men who had been bent on shooting me Avere Spaniards. They lived about there with their families, and had the girl told on them, as she threatened to do, our colonel would have arrested and shot them. They had only consented to let me go on her promise that .she would keep me from getting back to the command. Of course, not understanding Spanish. I didn't know this at the time or I should have been forewarned." Henderson had married the girl, and they had several children. In that country women fade early, and upon an Introduction I found the wife homely enough to use for a scarecrow. I have remembered the incident since as a warning to all men not to be led away from their duty by a pretty face. Henderson was living in terror, conscious of being a deserter, and all because he had listened to a siren. . Never let your piano be left open at night or at any time when not in use. Keep it in 'an even temperature, if possible, for musical instruments are easily affected by alterations of heat, cold, dryness and moisture. For this reason do not place it next the outer wall of the house. An upright piano may be placed with the back next the wall, but a grand piano should be placed so that the player will face the persons in the room.' Keep ornaments off the piano, unless it be the bust of af amous musician. Objects piled on top detract from the tone of the instrument. Open the lid occasionally to let in the air. A small bag of lime hung inside the' lid will catch any dampness and pre vent the strings from rusting, in winter when the fires are "going, a piano sometimes gets too dry, for this reason it is well to keep a plant in the room, that is watered regularly, and this will require more water than a plant kept in any other part of the house. Have the piano tuned once every three months; pianos allowed to be out of tune for long, lose the power to retain tune. The strings become stretched, losing their elasticity. Keep the piano freefrom dust by wiping with a soft rag that is used to polish furniture, dampened with a little boiled linseed oil. Dust the inside of the piano every time it is tuned; do this very carefully so as not to harm the delicate construction. A light feather duster will do nicely where a rag can not reach. Wipe the keys frequently with alcohol. A small linen bag filled with camphor kept inside the piano will keep away moths. un-slack- over the ownership of the fam- iv Bible, was fined $2" and costs: "Many people believe that y a jury in the S;n..My County whiskey is the only remedy for last Saturda snake bites," said Sam Griffith.

Where there is the most illiteracy in Kentucky you will find the worst roads, or to put it another way, where you find the worst roads, you will find the most illiteracy. We do not know that illiteracy is responsible for the bad roads, or whether the bad roads are respossible for the illiteracv. We do know this: that if you stamp out illiteracy by better schools you will soon get rid of bad roads, for intelligence won't take long to educate the people who live on them. The reason why the New3 years has been for twenty-fiv- e hammering on the ' school and road question is because upon both of these together hang the future development, progress and advancement of the State. You can not build a good road in Kentucky that a good school house and a good teacher will not follow it, and you can't build a good school house that a good road won't follow. We will nev-grid of illiteracy and bad roads in Kentucky until the education al and good roads forces unite under the banner for the extermination of these twin sisters of ignorance and poverty.

I am a plain citizen, who believes in the doctrine of the survival of the fitest, and to that extent, am willing to abide the decision of those who have children in our schools, and who are interested as teachers. Should I be elected, no partisan favors will be shown, and no punishment inflicted. The broad scope of my work already appears, it's fairness and impartiality are equally felt. No individual, no institution will receive from me a mark of excellency when not justly due. I will do my duty as my intelligence and God gives me the power to do it. My opponent, in your last issue, brings forward testimonials as to his powers as a teacher. I have no criticism to offer, except that it seems to me that he should have brought evidence' of his moral standing from those who live nearest to him and who know him while not on duty as a teach er. You are acquainted with the reports concerning his morals.

KENTUCKY How Unsatisfactory 'the Present Tax System Works in This State Most Unequal System Ever Devised and Most of the Progressive States Have Abolished the Plan Used in Kentucky. The present state constitution of Kentucky provides that "Taxes shall be uniform on all kinds of property," and on the surface this seems to be so fair the average thinker can And no fault with It. In practice, however, it has been found to be $he most unequal tax system ever devised, and most of the. progressive states have abolished the plan. Its inequalities and unfairness may be seen from the way it discriminates in certain classes of property and explains why Kentucky seems to have so little intangible wealth as compared with other states. For instance, cash in savings banks draws only three per cent interest, e bonds pay four per cent, real estate notes six per cent, stock in some foreign corporations ten per cent, while the tax on all is the same for state purposes, but varies for county and city purposes according to the logilt-edg- At last, my husband got me a bottle of Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I commenced taking it.

Tax commissions have repeatedly been appointed by authority of the legislatures and these commissions have unanimously condemned the general property tax which was adopted by the last constitutional convention and as the law is constitutional it has been impossible for the legislature alone to repeal it. However, the last general assembly undertook to amend the constitution as provided by law and this amendment will have to be ratified by the people at the November election and if it fails to carry it cannot be voted on again for another five years. The effect of the present law is to drive people and money from the state and to prevent other people and money from coming in and building up our industries. This is how the general property tax is regarded by outsiders as indl- cated in a report of a commission ap- pointed in another state and it ap- plies in all respects to t)ur present tax system.

"Year after year state and local assessing boards have denounced it as impracticable in Its workings and unjust in its results. These recommendations have for the most part passed unheeded or have led to ineffectual attempts to bolster up tho law. It is time the situation was faced squarely, and the tax in its present form abolished. "So far as the personal property tax attempts to reach intangible forms of wealth, its administration is so comical as to have become a byword. "Such a method of collecting revenue would be a serious menace to democratic institutions were it not so generally recognized as a howling farce. "But it is not a farce to those who are fully assessed. These are chiefly the widows and orphans who are caught when their property is listed ni the probate court, farmers, retail merchants and others, incorporated or unincorporated, with stocks of goods, and the small investors who are not skillful enough to make " non-taxabl- whoare caught. I I The Daily Louisville And The Times New e investments." The state referred to has changed its tax system and already the receipts from taxation have increased enor mously and tho peculiar effect of it has been to lower the taxes on lands and improvements by securing a greater revenue from personal property which had formerly produced little or no returns. Kentucky must increase its revenues to keep up its schools and public Institutions and it would be manifestly unfair to make the property at present paying taxes sustain this added burden, but under the present law there is no other recourse. If the amendment carries and the legislature is empowered to classify property so as to bring under the assessor's scrutiny the vast amount of personal property now escaping taxation the revenues can be increased and taxes on lands and houses diminished and what is more important than all we will be able to develop our resources, maintain our population and attract capital and people who will help to build up the state. Ohio has recently changed its tax laws and has already been benefited and Tennessee is about to renounce the general property tax. Other states have either long since abolished it or are preparing to do. so. The present system in Kentucky was popular when the country was young and wealth largely confined to real estate which could not be hidden. "Wealth is now largely in personal securities which the assessor can not locate and in consequence this class of property escapes almost entirely, Can wo afford to neglect this great question and yet hope to compete with neighboring states which are less favored than ours naturally but have the advantage of cheap money and low ! Adair County It uniform? In some counties land is assessed at 30 per cent of its value, in others 50 per cent, and in others 70 per cent. The state tax is the same in all the counties. Is this uniform? If an honest farmer lists his property at its fair value' and his unscrupulous neighbor puts a lower value on his property the former pays more than his share, while the latter pays less. If the state board of equalization raises the entire list for that county, the honest man pays on property he doesn't own, and yet our law is supposed to be uniform. That the personalty owned by citizens of Kentucky is vastly more than is listed for taxation is a fact; but the tax receipts don't show it. In fact, certain classes of property, such as stocks, bonds, notes and cash have almost disappeared from the tax rolls, and these evidences of wealth apparently grow less each year. If the present system is allowed to remain in force, it will result, as it has in other states, in almost all kinds of personalty disappearing from the assessors' books, and lands and houses which can not be hid or moved will have to bear the chief burden. It has been so in every state where the "general property tax" has been the plan on which property was taxed, and most of the states have been wise enough to get rid of such an unequal and unfair system. The Ohto state tax commission, in its 1908 report on the operation of the "general property tax," sa;s: "It is a failure for purposes of revenue or equality.
