A Re-fo- re Notable Reunion. well-kno- wn o n The Sublett and Dudgeon families of Adair, Taylor and Green counties, held their annual reunion on uha battle grounds, near Green river bridge, on Saturday, August llth. The gathering was immense and the social features highly enjoyable, there being several hundred persons in attendance. A bountiful dinner was spread and after the refreshment hour Mrs. Sophia Sublett, of Cane Valley, who is eighty-si- x years old, assisted by R. B. Wilson, of Campbellsville, gave a history of the Sublett and Dudgeon families since the arrival of the first emigrants from Francd, one hundred and fifty years ago. The descendants of the early settlers of this name are highly respeclable, and we trust they will continue to call an annual gathering as long as the two remain together. Will Leave Columbia. cloth-ing,ha- ts Tay-lorsvill- e, -- ' d The breaking up of a home is a serious thing to contemplate. For many years the Marcum family of this place has been comfortably situated in an inviting home, but the death of the mother, which occurred last week, necessitates the parting from the many valuable household goods, cherished since childhood, by the surviving members of the family, who decided to sell the residence and its contents, and to break up housekeeping. This action was the request of the mother, made a short time before she passed away. The children will visit other homes, elaborately furnished, but they will never enter one that will have the same attraction as the one in which they spent many happy years of their lives. Miss Sallie Ray will return to Rockhill, South Carolina, where she has been engaged for several years in one of the largest schools of the South, and Mrs. Denver will take a position, away from home, early in September. Our people will be sorry to see them take their departure. It will be hard for intimate friends to say goodbye, and the shaking of the hand will be more serious than ever before. Meet-aga- in, we may; but will it be in the same way? Rarely; rarely. Time brings changes features will be changed, scenes will shift, but true friendship will last forever, it matters not the State in which we are located. Miss Marcum and her sister, Mrs. Denver, have had splendid advantages and there is nob 'a doubt but they will make friends in any community in which they Nmay cast their lots- - Mrs. Paul, the oldest member of the family, and who has three daughters, will remain in her comfortable home In Columbia. 2t Prof. W. R. Todd Resigns. Prof. W. R. Todd, who gave perfect satisfaction as tea'cher of the higher branches In the Stanford High and Graded School and who was for another year without a dissenting vote, came up from Columbia Monday, where he has been spending his vacation, and asked that he be released. d - His request was reluctantly granted. -- Prof. Todd's reason for asking the re lease is an offer of a splendid position with a railroad entering Chicago. He told the trustees that it was the best offer he had ever had and while he disliked to make for & release, he felt it a duty he owed himself and his wife to do so. The board will meet this afternoon to elect a successor to Prof. Todd. His departure from Stanford is the cause of general regret.

There is no possibility of peace that will amount to more than an armistice, a temporary suspension of hostilities.

All druggists sell it. trayed their interests. When England was discussing peace without victory, with the French revolutionists, Burke made a protest against any peace with the government of France as then constituted. He held that no peace would be binding upon the revolutionary committee. He insisted there should first be a stable government, a government whose word and will would be binding upon the French people. In support of the right of the allies of that day to refuse to hold even a peace conference with the "regicides," Burke quoted from Vattels Law of Nations, book second, chapter five, to this effect: "If there be any nation that makes an open profession of trampling justice under foot, of despising and violating the rights of others whenever it finds an opportunity, the interest of- - human society will authorize all others to unite in order to humble and chastise it. "We do not forget the maxim, established in our preliminaries, that it dees not belong to nations to usurp the power of being judges of each other. In particular cases, liable to the least doubt, it ought to be supposed that each of the parties may have some right and the injustice of that which has committed the injury-ma- y proceed from error and not from a general contempt of justice. "But if by constant maxims and by a continued conduct, one nation shows that it has evidently this pernicious disposition and that it considers no right as sacred, the safety of the human race requires that it should be suppressed. To form and support an unjust pretention,' is to do an injury not only to him who is interested in this pretention, but to mock at justice in general and to injure all nations." Here in the Twentieth century is Germany, which has torn up treaties as mere scraps of paper, which has invaded and devastated a neutral country; which has stirred up sedition and promoted treason in every country which harbors a German Ambasundersador, "trampling-justic- e foot, and despising and violating Try Cardui J. 74 BSEE the rights of every other nation," with whom no abiding peace can be made until the German people have established a government which can give some assurance of respect for their international obligations. That was the attitude Bismark took toward France in 1870, refusing to treat with Gambetta and the Commune, and waiting until the Theirs government was accepted by France. The course of Bismark was that of a wise statesman, worthy of imitation at this time. Louisville Post. Saving Thousands. The great Red Cross uprising is one of the proofs of the universal purpose to ameliorate as far as possible the evils of war. in this movement all are evidently enlisted, the young, the old, both sexes, all degrees of physical strength or infirmity. There are no exemptions, none aksed or desired. All have rallied to the call, by spontaneous and practically unanimous impulse. Money and effort to any extent are freely, cheerfully offered. The world is involved in the most general and worst of wars, and in a frightful ruthlessness going far beyond any former atrocities, but there is another side to the situation. The agencies of re lief are immeasurably greater than any heretofore organized. This could not happen except from profound convictions in behalf of humanity. The glamour of militarism has not lost all its strengtht but the sign of the Red Cross is borne by a mightier army than ever followed any banner to of trumpets and drums. What a sure portent of the better time coming! In the civil' war the deaths from disease were three times as numerous an those from bullets. The ravages of disease were greater by than they the-soun- farmers still have an entirely wrong idea of what the time demands of them. They have become imbued with the idea of practicing economy, but make a mistake as to what "economy -really is right now. That American farm folk, as 'well as American city people, have been reckless in their waste of foodstuffs is beyond question. Much of this waste on the farm has been excusable, in part at least, because of the fact that it was really more economical to let the products go to waste than to take them to market. Much of the waste in both town and country has always been inexcusable. It was the result of carelessness, ignorance, or recklessness. Such waste is doubly a crime now, but it is still going on. Every thing that can be saved for human food or for live stock feeds should be saved this year. That is the economy demanded by the stress of war the conservation of every thing produced. Labor and the fruits of labor must not be wasted. The farmer who raises stuff and then lets it go to waste is sinning against his country and against his own pocketbook. The kind of economy that is not called for is the economy of parsimony. There has never been a better chance for the farmer who has something to sell to make money. There has never been a time when farmers could profit more by increasing the efficiency of their own labor and the productive capacity of their farms. The farmer who fears to go ahead and do bigger things than be has been doing is making a mistake. He is not doing his full part to help the country, and he is not taking advantage of the opportunity he has. No man should hesitate now to produce all he can. No "man should tolerate any waste of the things he has spent time and labor and. money to produce. Southern Agriculturist.

It is a creditable sentiment, too, whSn not carried too far. Every d man is fond of his dog, partly, of course, because it is his, but partly because the dog that is well treated lavishes upon his owner a wealth of affection and fidelity that can only be repaid with affection and fidelity. The man who will treat a dog with cruelty lacks something a man should have. The few men who talk abput the killing of dogs talk nonsense. The dog is too useful as well as too much liked to be done away with. But there is a limit in everything beyond which a reasonable man will not go. The man who puts his affection for his dog before his affection for his fellowman and his country is not reasonable. Southern Agriculturist. right-minde-- d two-thir- ds The moonlight school is a school for the farmer and the farmer's wife, for his grown daughter, his overgrown son, his father, his mother and bis hired man. First of all, it is a school where men and women may learn to read and write, and, next, "for those who are already blest with these acquirements, but who desire to improve the education which they have. When the moonlight schools were first established in all of the schoolhouses in Rowan County, Kentucky, there was much speculation as to whether men and women on the farm tired n would come out and to school at night, even by moonlight, which makes - walk entrancing. The farmers and their families set that speculation at rest on the first evening, September 5, 1911, and answered for the rural people for all time. Instead of the expected few, twelve hundred came. In many districts the moonlight schools were better attended than the day school. The moonlight school is romantic in name and in the rapidity with which it takes men and women out of the illiterate class, but it is practical in purpose and results. It purposes to redeem men and women from illiteracy, and this it does so quickly as to seem almost miraculous. I was astonished .when a mother in Rowan County wrote me her first letter after bul two weeks' instruction and practice, but so many have written since then, after six or seven or eight evenings' time, that it makes her achievement seem insignificant. The moonlight school has demonstrated that men and women can learn to read and write with comparative ease, and that there is learn to read and write with comparative ease, and that there is less than a month's time between any normal illiterate who attempts to learn and some degree of erudition. In Kentucky, the home of the moonlight school, the legislature created an illiteracy commission to promote and extend these schools to every section of the state. Volunteer teachers con toil-wor- duct moonlight schools in moun- cial purposes, for study and diss, cussion and tains" and valleys, in advancement, is urmills, mines, women's gent.
