A Talk to the School Teachers of 1915. WILL HEtP STATE The Bible School of Methods, which began last Monday morning at Christian church and closed on Thursday evening was a splendid success. It was one of the first schools of the kind that had ever been held in this part of the country. So was entered upon with some misgivings, but It was not long until those who had entered were satisfied of the good it would accomplish. Twenty-sinames were registered in the school and 11 were awarded certificates or diplomas. The following are the names of those who were granted diplomas: Misses Mary Lucy Lowe, Kate Gill, Sallie Williams, Aileene Richerson, Mrs. Maggie Ruberts, Mrs. Robt. Rowe, Dr. U. L. Taylor, Z. T. Williams and wife Robert Reed and Mrs. Annie S. Sanders. RoyK. Roadruck, of Louisville, Ky., who is one of our State Bible School workers, and.Mrs, J. A. Asbury, of Louisville, who is the Elementary of Bible Schools in the State and F. M. Tinder, of Lancaster, who has been pastor of that church for nine years, were the teachers and conductors of the schod. The subjects discussed were The Bible, Bible School Origination, Religious Pedagogy, Missions, The Rural Church, Elementary Bible Work and Special addresses. We were sorry and very much disappointed that Mr. Tinder was called home the second day of the school. He gave four splendid addresses: "The Bible Every Bodies Book." "God's Idea of. Community Life," "The Bible Wisely Used by Teachers and Leaders," "The and Unity of Rural Life Forces." W. G. Montgomery gave us three fine addresses on Wednesday. Mrs. Asbury was considered by all who heard her one of the best teachers in her department that we have ever heard. She commands the attention of all her hearers at once and holds it through the entire time. Mr. .Road-- , ruck's lectures on "Bible School Organization and Missions in Bible Schools were good and brought new methods and enthusiasm to the class. It was the universal expression of those who attended the school of praise to the whole program. , It was a busy time with the country people and but few of them attended. Then that character of school is new here and the people did not learn what it really meant until toward the close. We are indeed much gratified with its success. Z. T. Williams. x IN A VITAL WAY.

The people of Kentucky are feeling the oppression of unwise and unjust legislation as never before. The State debt has increased 'til it has jiow reached the millions of dollars enormous sum of more than two and one-haand still increasing. This is the result of many Districts sending incompetent men to represent them. There is no good reason why the taxes paid into the State Treasury should not have met the expenses of the State, had the State Government been economically administered, and not unwise and unjust laws been enacted that have created numerous offices to be paid out of the revenue.

Men who achieve seldom talk, and men who talk seldom achieve. There is no such thing as a noisy thinker, and brevity is always a close companion to truth. It will be a great privilege to stand by the side of men who can roll in place the cornerstone of industry; to associate with men who can look at the world and see to the bottom cf it; to commune with men who can hear the roar of civilization a few centuries away. Too often we listen to the rabble element of our day that cries out against every man who achieves, "Crucify him." Mankind never has and probably never will produce a generation that appreciates the genius of its day. There never will be a crown without a cross, progress without sacrifice or an achievement without a challenge. This is an age of service, and that man is greatest who serves the largest number. The present generation has done more to improve the condition of mankind than any civilization since human motives began their upward flight. The Greeks gave human life inspiration, but while her orators were speaking with the tongues of angels, her farmers were plowing with forked sticks; while her philosophers were emancipating human thought from bondage, her traffic moved on carts driven, and ofttimes drawn, by slaves; while her artists were painting divine dreams on canvas, the streets of proud Athens were lighted by fire brands dipped in tallow. The genius of past ages sought toj arouse, the intellect and stir the soul but the master minds of today are seeking to serve. Civilization has as signed to America the greatest task of the greatest age, and the greatest men that ever trod the greatest planet are solving it. Their achievements have astounded the whole world and we challenge every age and nation to name men or products that can approach In creative genius or mas terful skill in organization, the mar velous achievements of the tremendous men of the present day. Edison can press a button and turn a light on multiplied millions of homes; Vail can take down the receiver and talk with fifty millions of people; Mc- Cormick's reaper can harvest the world's crop, and Fulton's steam en gine moves the commerce of land and sea. The greatest thing a human being can do is to serve his fellow men; Christ did it; Kings decree it, and wise men teach it It is the glory of this practical age that Edison could find no higher calling than to become the janitor to civilization; Vail the messenger to mankind; McCormick the hired hand to agriculture, and Fulton the teamster to industry, and blessed is the age that has such masters for its servants. two-wheel- The esti- COMMERC E POLITICIANS mated at $187,739,000,000, $1,965 for each man, woman and child in the country.

Rogers, of the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce. In less than two thirds of a century from 1850 to 1912 the total wealth of the nation, excluding exempt real estate, increased from $7,136,000,000, or $308 per capita, the percen tages of increase being 2,658 for the total and 496 for the per capita amounts. In other words, the wealth of the nation as a times whole is nearly twenty-fiv- e as great as it was in 1850, while that of the individual is about six times as great. The exempt real estate, which was lestimated at $12,314,000,-00or $129 per capita, in 1812, includes the buildings, other structures, and public works owned by the Federal, state and local government, with the land on which they stand, together with such real property of educational, charitable and religious THE VITAL PROBLEM OF institutions as is exempt from 0, This nation is now entering upon an era of marine development. The wreckage of European commerce has drifted to our shores and the world war is making unprecedented demands for the products of farm and factory. In transportation facilities on land we lead the world but our port facilities are inadequate, and our flag is seldom seen in foreign ports. If our government would only divert the energy we have displayed in conquering the railroads to mastering the commerce of the sea, a foreign bottom would.be unknown on the ocean's highways. This article will be confined to a discussion of our ports for the products of the farm must pass over our wharfs before reaching the water. We have in this nation 51 ports, of which 41 are on the Atlantic and 10 are on The the Pacific Coast. Congress appropriated over $51,000,-00for improving our Rivers and Harbors and private enterprise levies a toll of approximately $50,000,000 annually in wharfage and charges for which no tangible service is rendered. The latter item should be lifted off the backs cf the farmer of this nation and this can be done by Congress directing its appropriations to ports that are free where vessels can tie up to a wharf and discharge her cargo free of any fee or charge. A free port is progress. It takes out the unnecessary link in 'the chain of transactions in commerce which has for centuries laid a heavy hand upon commerce. No movement is so heavily laden with results or will more widely and equally distribute its benefits as that of a free port and none can be more easily and effectively secured.

There is no escaping the market problem and the highest development of agriculture will not be attained until it is solved, for a market is as necessary for the producer as land on which to grow his crop. Governmental and educational institutions have spent $180,000,000 in the United States during the past ten years for improving soil production and improving seeds and plants, but very little attention and less money has been given to the marketing side of agriculture. The problem is a monumental one and one which will never be solved until it gets within the grasp of a gigantic organization where master minds can concentrate the combined experience and wisdom of the age upon it. It is a problem which the farmers, merchants, bankers, editors and statesmen must unite in solving. The Farmers' Union stands for all there is in farming from the most scientific methods of seed selection to the most systematic and profitable plans of marketing, but does not believe in promoting one to the neglect of the other. We consider the work of farm demonstrators valuable and we ask that governmental and commercial agencies seeking to help us, continue to give us their assistance and advice, hut we believe that their influence should be extended to the marketing side of. our farm problems also. We cannot hope to develop manufacturing by of the factory; we cannot build up mercantile enterprises by the merchants loading their shelves with surplus goods and no more can we develop agriculture by glutting the market with a surplus of products." over-productio- J n wicked to neglect illness and means of relief.

Such gatherings mark the high tide of religious political fanaticism, put bitterness into the lives of men; fan the flames of class hatred and destroy Christian influence in the community. The spirit actuating such meetings is anarchistic, and dangerous 'to both church and state. Po-Do-L- as Po-Do-L- There never was a time in the history of this nation when we needed statesmen more or agitators less than at the present moment. The opportunities now afforded us on land and sea demand the best there is in statecraft and the possibilities that are con fronting us call for national issues that unite the people, build industry and expand trade. The agricultural and industrial development of this nation has suffered severely at the hands of agitators who have sent torpedoes crashing into the port side of business and whose neglect of the interests of the farmer makes them little less than political criminals. We want no more of these evil spirits to predominate in government. Too long their hysterical cry has sent a shiver down the spinal column of industry. Too long have the political agitators capitalized strife, pillaged progress and murdered opportunity. An industrial corpse is not a desirable thing, a crippled business an achievement or neglect an accomplishment about which any representative of the government has a right to boast. Issues that Breed Agitators Should be Eliminated. The political agitator must he eliminated from public life before thoughtful consideration can be given to a constructive program in government. The liquor question is the most prolific breeding ground for agitators and whether pro or anti, the hatch is equally as undesirable. This article is in no sense a discussion of the liquor question but deals solely and by way of illustration with the political products of that issue. Other subjects will be dealt with in the order of their importance. In the history of our government the liquor issue has never produced a constructive statesman worth mentioning and it never will. It has sent more freaks to Congress, Lilliputians to the Senate and incompetents to office than any other political issue under the sun. The recent experience of the English Parliament which lashed itself into a fury over the liquor question has a lesson that it is well for the farmers of this nation to observe; for the subject in some form or other is constantly before the public" for solution and ofttimes to the exclusion of more important problems to the American plowmen. Too Many Political Drunkards. the Prohibition leader of Europe who led the prohibition fight in England, has declared that he will never again take a drink politically and there are many American politi- cians pro and anti who would render their country a service by climbing, on the water wagon or signing a pledge of political temperance. Too often our legislative halls are turned into s political and many of the members become intoxicated on liquor discussions. We have too many political drunkards pro and anti in our public affairs. No one who is a slave to the political liquor habit is quite so capable of dealing with the busi- ness affairs of government as the sober and industrious. We have few public men in this day who are stroag enough to resist the temptation of strong drink politically and when the demon Rum once becomes firmly entrenched in the mind of a politician, he is less capable of meeting the demands for constructive statesmanship now confronting this nation. We have in this country too many politicians both pro and anti. A candidate with political delirium tremens, a preacher with political snakes in his boots and an agitator drunk on the liquor question are the saddest sights in civilization and they should all be forced to take the political Keeley Cure. It Is far more important in government to make it easier for those who toil to eat than to make it more difficult for a few topers to drink. There Is not one person in one hundred of our rural population that ever touches liquor but we all eat three times a Lloyd-George, bar-rcomred-nose- KNOW THY COUNTRY II-Ra- ilroads commercial In discussing the achievements of this great age, we shall approach the subject as the historian chronicling events. This series will endeavor to record in writing the supremacy of American men and industries in the world's affairs and perptuate an appreciation of our marvelous Industrial achievements by presenting simple facts, figures and comparisons that are overpowering in their convictions. America holds her proud place among the nations of the earth today on account of her supremacy in transportation facilities. The mighty minds of the age are engaged in the problems of transportation, and the greatest men in the history of the world's commerce are at the head of the transportation systems of the United States. In the discussion of transportation, let us consider separately our Railways, Telegraph and Telephones, Express, Public Highways, Steamships, Street Railways, Interurban and other forms of transportation, and this article will deal with railways. The United States has the largest mileage, the best service, the cheapest rates, pays labor the highest wages, and we have the most efficiently managed of the railways of the world. They stand as a monument to the native genius of our marvelous builders, and most of the railroads in foreign countries have been built under American orders. The railroads represent a larger investment of capital than any other branch of human activity. The mileage in the United States exceeds Use of Trade-marRs. the accepted distance from the earth to the moon. We had in 1911, the last year in which figures for all countries are available, on the earth's surface, 639,981 miles of railway divided as follows: United States 241,199, Europe 207,432 and other countries 191,350. The United States has 38 per cent of the world's mileage, seven per cent of the estimated population and about five per cent of the 'area. The total- capital Invested in the railways of the world is $50,000,000,-00divided as follows: United States $13,000,000,000 Europe $25,650,000,000 and other countries $11,350,000,000. Reduced to a mileage basis the cap- italization is as follows: The world $78,000, United States $54,000, Europe $124,000, and other countries $59,000. A comparison of rates is equally as Interesting and the United States takes the lead in economy and service. The average rate per ton per hundred mile haul is as follows: United States 76c, Great Britain $2.53, France $1.44, Germany $1.44, Russia 92c, Austria-Hungar$1.30, Italy $2.30 and Switzerland $2.82. The average yearly pay of all railroad employes in the principal countries is as follows: United States $757, Germany $392. Italy $345. Austria $322, Great Britain $279, France $260 and Russia $204. About 30 per cent, or 188,000 miles, of the railways of the world are government owned. About half the railway mileage of Europe Is government owned. , A comparison of the economy, In time and money end the convenience In travel, will- - ba made in a later article. 0, y his customers. The general public seem to take it for granted that trademarks and patents are one and the same 'thing. Certainly they are both dealt within the patents office, for the sake of convenience, and it seems that this fact has conveyed the above impression. A trademark is a registration In the first place, being a certificate of genuineness, it protects the public. Second, being an identifying mark, the trader is protected by the law against any competitor "vho endeavors to trade on another i name or goods.

Uninterrupted successes for the Austrians and Germans in Galicia' are claimed in Vienna, where it is said the advance South of the Dniester is continuing. In Central Galicia, however, the Russians apparently are cheeking the advances with more success. German submarines have sunk two more British trawlers. The crews of both vessels were rescued.

It is asserted in that a German transport and torpedo boat were sunk. New York, June 10. From a source close to Dr. Dernburg, a statement was made here that Germany would probably submit through a neutral source, peace terms to the Allies within the next thirty days. These terms are distinctly more liberal in character than those mentioned by Dr. Dernburg a few weeks ago, but many of the essential features are the.same. The' new plan simply contemplates' "the restoration of the status quo with a few' modifications. Germany, according to this authority, would stipulate that no attempt be made to humiliate her; that she be accorded the honors of a warrior who has fought bravely, and that she not be required to pay an indemnity to any of the great Powers. She would evacuate Belgium, Poland and Northern France. But she would insist that in exchange for these her colonies now in the hands of the British Government be returned to her.
