There is not a more healthy location in Kentucky than where the Lindsey-Wilso- n buildings are situated. They are located on a hill, giving a fine view of the whole town of Columbia. There is plenty of shade, and the water is as fine as ever come out of the ground. The buildings are heated by steam and are lighted by electricity. This school was founded by the Louisville Conference and citizens of Columbia and Adair county and the Columbia district, mainly for training boys and girls to enter college and fill useful stations in life. The course of study is correlated with Vanderbilt University and conforms to the entrance requirements of the best of colleges. The fourteen years of its existence has fully justified the wisdom of its founders. Nearly fifty thousand dollars has been expended in erecting the buildings and furnishing the same. Morethan a half dozen towns were after the school, but the enterprising people of Columbia won outfby their most liberal donations. The Educational Board of the Louisville Conference was here last week, and it reported that it was well pleased with this year's work. The Board announced that before September qvery thing necessary to be done would be accomplished. Several weeks ago Prof. Paul Chandler was elected principal for the ensuing year. There will be an ample and competent corps of teachers, all the names of the faculty to be announced in the next week or two. A number of experienced men are available. Before the Lindsey-Wilso- n was established. Columbia had a population, according to the census, of 622 souls. It now numbers its inhabitants to something close to 1,500. There have been more dwellings built in Columbia in the last fourteen years than were in it before the school was started.

The music and expression recital by pupils of Miss Alice Walker and Mrs. Ray Montgomery, at the Graded School Gym, last Wednesday evening, was witnessed by a large and appreciative audience. So well did each one of the pupils perform, the teachers could not help but feel that their efforts in instructing had not been in vain. Certainly the audience was delighted in seeing and hearing such gifted pupils. Miss Walker is a skilled pianist, and rapidly imparts her knowledge, while as an expression teacher, Mrs. Montgomery is one among the best. . Latest War News.

With the questions which are domestic, questions of duty, questions of action, I naturally shall not deal, but 1 shall undertake to tell quite impartially what the military effect and the larger moral effect of American entrance may be, as I sought to point out in the past the significance of Rumanian and of Italian participation. Always with the coming of a new nation two problems arise: that of moral effect of anew and that of the material aid the new belligerent will bring. The entrance of Italy quite transformed the European conflict, because it gave it the character of a fight by the European countries tgainit Germany, comparable ut terly with the fight made against Napoleon a century ago.

The man who seduces a woman or trades on her virtue ought to be shot. ps The extension department of Kentucky Agriculture sends the following appeal to farmers of this State, with special application to the Blue Grass region: The central Blue Grass region is the most fertile par t of Kentucky and is capable of producing an enormously greater food supply than it has ever done. It is the patriotic duty of every farmer in this rich section to produce all the food crops possible during this' time of stress. Let him not deceive himself by thinking that because he can get a large price for his tobacco, he can buy such food products as he may not raise on the farm. In the first place, he may be surprised to find food at such high prices that his ground would have been more profitably cultivated in food crops. In the second place, .he may find that he cannot buy food, no matter how much money, he may have. We shall not try to tell the farmer whether he shall grow tobacco or not, but we can safely say that he is not doing his duty to his country if he does not produce as much of food products as is by any means possible. Many of our people hindered by a lack of information concerning the crop, by the fact that under certain very exceptional conditions sorghum becomes poisonous to stock, and by the opinion that the crop is hard on land. The last two hindrances are by no means serious. Aside from its special use for syrup, sorghum owes its value as a general farm crop to three outstanding characteristics of the plant. In the first place, the sorghum plant, pound for pound, is nearly as valuable for feeding as corn. Again, under conditions favorable for the growth of corn, sorghum will outyield corn as forage (including ensilage) and will compare favorably with corn in yield of grain. Finally the ability of sorghum to withstand adverse conditions, especially drouth, makes the crop an extremely reliable one for the production of feed. Since the greatest use of sorghum is for feed, its "value must be reckoned in its ability to produce feed. The varieties of sorghum are divided into two groups, sweet or saccharine and grain or The sweet sorghums are grown for forage, pasturage, silage and as soiling crops, while the grain sorghums are grown chiefly for grain. non-saccharine. of Health. The Ppthagorians of Ancient Greece atn simple food, practiced temperance and purity. As a badge they used the five pointed star which they regarded as a symbol of health. A red five pointed star appears on each package of Chamberlain's Tablets, and still fulfills its ancient mission as a symbol of health.

It will be unfortunate if, in our anxiety concerning the war and the progress of the war, we should spread abroad a gloom in America such as necessarily pervades the nations of Europe. America is not to be devastated. She is not to be invaded. If her business be disturbed it will be disturbed, chiefly, by unwise interference with business. We will have to submit to heavy tax burdens, but these do not count for a great deal in comparison with the mustering of soldiers and sailors, the temporary disturbance of personal relations. It is not heartless, under these circumstances, to seek rest, recreation and change. It is more essential now than ever that we mind, maintain a and that we free our hearts from well-balanced Stop Left over Coughs. Pine-Tar-Honey fear.

Ad have the r. - idea that Kentucky has been in the habit of producing her own supply of foodstuffs, but this is not the" case, as we import large quantities of food supplies every year. If a farmer in the Blue Grass section can grow tobacco and also produce a maximum of food crops, he may grow tobacco, but if it is a case of neglecting one or the other, then there can be no question that it is his duty to give up tobacco. The' danger arising from tobacco production in Kentucky at this time is not from the acreage devoted to the crop, but the labor required to grow. it. The labor .expended on an acre of tobacco would produce ten acres of corn. We have the land in the Blue Grass but not the labor. "Chamberlain's Tablets Have Done Wonders for me." Too Old at Forty?

But a writer in the June American Magazine says it could be disregarded if people made themselves more useful as they grew older. He writes "For man to be too old at forty is not natural. Scientists tell us that the life periods of man compare with the life history of the race. "In most business and professions the period of mature manhood is commonly the period of great skill. The body still retains its elasticity; previous training and acquired good habits count in daily work; experience now begins to return div idends. The individual develops common sense, conservatism and deliberation. He is less like ly to be swayed by the primitive emotions of younger life. Well-lai- d plans mature; returns from previous investments in time, labor and money begin to come usual, more freely, more reasonably. Some persons prefer drilling to golf. Drilling is for them. Others prefer golf to baseball. Probably baseball appeals to a larger number of persons. It is a clean sport, and it is a healthy recreation. Others are to indulge in gardening, which is profitable mentally and physically, whatever the price of seed or how small the crop. Let the aim of every American man or woman be to maintain a sound mind in a sound body, at this time above all times. The country makes a demand not solely upon one's physical forces or his financial powers, but upon all the faculties of each citizen. The citizens of America control America, and the course of America has placed her as the leader of the world. There i3 a call, therefore, for the highest qualities of citizenship, in all the relations of the citizen to his neighbors and his friends; to his business and his business associates; to his party and party lead; ers.
