1007Olle STORE Interests Mountain MONEYTALKS Hoya Bank is Managed and What Makes a Bank Safe A bank is a stock company or cor poration It dues out belong to any one man Every person who has helped to furnish tho banks capital has a share in the management of the bank Tbcso people who own the banks capital are called stockholders and they ure the bank The fifty thousand dollars capital of the Bcrca flank and Trust Company Is owned by fifty three different people Wnen you deal with this bank you arc dealing with these fiftythree different people Most of tho stockholders of the Be 5i8 Bank and Trust Company live in Madison County and in the nearby counties of Jackson Rcckcaitlo and Garrard But even though most of the people who have a share In the bank do live close to Berea it would not bet possible for all of thorn to come to the banks place of business every day to take deposits cash checks and loan money And so the stock holders have selected ten men from among them selves to have charge of the bank and run tho business for them These men are Mr J J Moore Dr P Cor nelius Mr E T Fish Mr J Wl Herndon Mr A W Stewart Mr W H Porter Mr Choa Burdttte Prof J W Dlnsmoro Mr J E Johnson and Mr J F Dean These men are the directors of the bank Tho peopo who own the banks capital and who are personally liable for the banks debts know that their Interests in the bank will bo well looked after They picked these directors to run the bank for them because they knew that they are honest that they are good buclness men and that they will see to it that the batik Is run safely and according to hw But the directors are all busy men and they can not spend all their time at the bank every day and Itls not necessary for them to do so So the stock holders through tho directors employ a cashier and assistant to stay at the bank all tho time to take in de posits and cash checks and do the bookkeeping for the bank So this bank Is not a one man Insti tution but Its various Interests oft closely looked after by its Board Of Directors who are responsible to tho stock holders and to the State of Ken tucky for the faithful discharge of the banks obligations And once every month all of the di rectors meet at the bank and thor oughly sift everything that the cashier and his assistants have done They look at the notes and see that they are all good They count tho money and see that It is all there And they go over the books and ceo that they are correct So when you deal with a bank always remember that It Is the stock holders who are the bank that tho directors are managing tho bank as agents for the stock holders and that tho cashier and the clerks who help him nro agents for tho stock holders and directors and are heavily bonded to the bank for the faithful discharge of their duties And In Judging of the safety of B bank always Inquire what is the amount of tho banks capital and who are tho directors who are funning the bank If the capital is sufficient and the Directors are honest and good bus bees men and Jf they visit the bank 1 often to see that it is runright then the bank Is safeand It Is a good bank t+ put your money in for safekeep ing Our

LTHE SCHOOL I Problems of the District School 117 Prof Dlninioro I Put 5Kuplnc Up the Interest tin this artIcle Prof nlnimorc continues his talk 4 In some parts of the country n day has been set apart for the study of birds and Is called Bird Day It Is rather the culmination of a series of studios on birds Country children have a CIne opportunity to study birds and ought to know much more about them than they ordinarily do They may first roughly clatslfy them lIS UmCUI1birdsThese branches may be top aratcly comparing different kinds tf the class as the robin and the wren Bird Day gathers together the know ledge acquired In several weeks ir months and makes as great a show Ing as possible The children have learned to draw pictures of the varI ous kinds they have studied to describe their appearance and habits to Imitate or describe their note song or chirrup to tell where and how they build their nests number of eggs aP1 pearanco of young ones and so A collection of nests may be made being careful to take only those that have been abandoned The literary part of the program may consist of songs poems stories and written descriptions of birds Bird games may be played and the small children may be taught to act birds by hopping fly Ing and the like Doth the preparation and the day Itself will bring out much that Is interesting and useful 6 Another equally profitable and perhaps more entertaining occasion is History Day This has an advantage over Bird Day in that all the people of the District may take part Like the other It requires considerable preparation on tho part of teacher and pupils It need not be confined to the History Class all may have some part The children must be made familiar with a considerable number of historical events so that they can tell about them readily in their own words They must collect pictures of important people places and things They should make drawings of such ob jects as Lincolns birthplace the cabin where Betsey Ross made the flag tho BunkaaHlll monument the Liber- tyJ Bell etc All the relics of the neighborhood may be borrowed for tho occasion and be so placed as to the best display makeI I The play ground must I despised nor neglected It may bo uplthelandlmakeby means of tho Interest in games who could not otherwise be Induced to remain Some condemn match games of football baseball and rowing because of the loss of time and other attendant evils but all are In favor of good healthy clean athletics All children and most grown people like to play and it is right they should It is part of their development If rightly di rected It may be an Important part of their education When the Interest in play is on the wane and the old games become tire I some have a new game ready to pro pose Enter Into it with zest yourself and see If it willnot bring new life sit to the school Outdoor games are the best but there should bo a few Indoor games for bad weather Conundrums riddles charades aro all good If right ly conducted Much depends upon the way the teacher goes Into it Never play tha halfhearted manner All look to the teacher aax the leading spirit and any signs of being borrd will be catching and the game will bo spoiled Somo of the larger district schools might have a Field Day This would give every boy a chance to take part and to chodso tho particular sport in Continued Next Bcrea has had an Arts and Crafts exhibit of her own small indeed arid I yet a beginning ttor many years Ee rca has sent collections of coverllda and other weavlngs to New York lice ton Chicago St Louis Denver troit and many other points to be exhibited along with other artistic handwork from all over the United States In this way the skill of our weavers has bebomo widely known and honored I Tills week some of our weavers had I a chance to seo the work of weavers in other states through the kindness of Wade of Oakmont cure of weaving from as i on how to keep up the Interest In the Knool which ho excels Each class rhouli havo its events such as running jump lug throwing tho hammer putting the Young boys should not attempt buns Jumping may consitt of several varieties as running hop atopand jump standing hopstepandjump bo given are ribbons Indicating first I and second places and a record kept from year to year Where this could it would be aI I t justifiable thing to do 7 It must not be forgotten that mental exercise Is as fascinating lIS physical when rightly adapted to the pupils When mind and body are In good condition there is nothing more than study provided it Is freehand suited to their and needs They should bo constantly moving into now work using the old in acquiring it If it Is dono vigorous ly and thorouly but little review that Is going over the same ground again will be needed When in pursuit of the new it is discovered that certain points have not been thorly learned take up those particular parts and dwell upon them until they are understood It does not pay to fa over old straw BO long as there is more wheat in front of you than you can ever get threshed but it does pay to do It thorly as you go Study hard until the mind needs rest or change then play or rest 6 A FRIEND TO DROP There Is no doubt but that the pres ence of a visitor who is a friend of the school Is a stimulus to good work lIt Is not necessary to wait until some one happens to come neither will St answer to extend a general invitation such as come and see us some time Think over your patrons and friends and make a list of those who would be an advantage to the school Canon number one and ask him or her to come up at an appointed time If that docs not suit agreo upon the earliest date that will and send a reminder the day before It Is proper tt suggest to the visitor tho particular points you would like to have noticed In which the pupils need encourage ment and to ask for private suggest ions to yourself When tho visit is over reflect upon Its success or failure If it was not what you hoped discover the cause and try again Decide what course to follow with Number Two and have him cull a week or so later and thus continue thru the list You will find It will materially benefit the school Ml patrons must be cordially invited to come at any time and must be made welcome and receive attentions when they do come Those who cannot do the school any good will receive benefit themselves They will be more in touch and sympathy with the teacher and pupils and have a greater Interest In what Js being done for their chil dren wo observe that sJx things have been suggested in this chapter for keeping up the Interest each going sufficiently Into details to- bo a guide to the teacher Upon him or her everything depends A lazy or Indifferent teacher may road It over and decide that these things are too difficult or require much exertion and drift along as before But one who Is alive to his own growth and to the advancment of his school will wel come suggestions from whatever source and will seek to put into execution every plan that commends Itself to judgment tveek I 1THE HOMET- he I Wade Collection of Weavnps De Mr Pennsylvan 001opedspecimens ofIbroadI

Secretary- of Agriculture which has been trade public shows that this year While the crops have not been so largo ns In some other years their value to the farmers will be greater than over be fore because of tho high prices Tho corn crop Is tho most important This year wo have grown about 2553732000 bushels There have been three largo crops but It this one is sold out at present prices tho farmers will get 1350000000 more than the average of the last five crops It Is not certain whether hay or cot ton is tho crop next in importance It is thought that tho hay this year Is worth more than the cotton It SII estimated to be worth 660000000 or 65000000 more than over before The value of tho cotton crop Is oomewhcr between 650000000 and 467500000 This Is a little below that of last ycai but ahead of all others The size of the hay crop ii 61420000 tone The wheat crop le fourth In value with 625C76000 bushels and a value of 500000000 Thy oat crop is small er than usual by 19 per cent but Its value 360000000 is greater than that of any other oat crop The tobacco crop ii the smallest for several years being 45213000 pounds but Its value J67000000 U greater than usual Altogether the total value of the wealth produced on the farms of the country for the year Is put at 17412 000000 which U J296000000 above the high record of last year Of course a great deal of the wealth has been needed by tho farmers to support them selves but the total shows how very Important to the country the farms are The figures given above are from the government report and aro rs near right as it has

Enllnd The only way to remedy social evils is to conduct our affairs to the great benefit of all The relations between myself and my workpeople are of a strictly business character into which no thought of charity or philanthropy ever enters You cant carryon a business of this extent or indeed any business what ever on sentiment You must adhero strictly tb common sense and to contract agreed and entered upon on both sides In the same way I argue that if the employer feels the need after a days work of a com fortable and attractive home the workman must naturally feel the same It appears to mo that those who have contributed towards tho prosperity of a business have the same right as myself to live a pleasant life in pleasant surroundings- I can look May of my workmen in tho face and 83Y1t1 have never patronized you and I never intend doing so and any of them can look me in the face and sny1t1 never received pay from you that I had not fully earned And that is all I want Believe me when I say that the strongest bond which can unite employer and employed is the common interest which they all take in the common enterprise f Remember selfinterest is the rule of life and especially of com mercial life But there are two kinds of selfinterest Selfish soliin terest which takes care of only number one and tliat broad intelligent selfinterest which lIeelsIo find tho interests of self by regarding the welfare and interests of others Now I endeavor always to keep in mind the welfare of my employes They in turn look after my interests Selfishness never really pays either the employer or the workman And again I encourgago intelligent interest in the working of this great concern og the part of my workmen For instance wo have a regular suggcstiQig bureau horej if I may so term it by which any workman who invlgnts and patents a mechanical improvement which many of them do especially in the direction of life and limb saving contrivances in tho midst of all this very dangerous machinery shall be directly benefited Alfar as possible I give my 3500 employes chances and opportuni ties for raising and benefiting themselves whilst they work together forth goodof 1he wholo concern Wages are raised hours are lessened tho article is produced bettor and cheaper by the laborsaving machine and a highclass machine necessitates the employment of the bast workmen possible to manipulate it Another remarkable fact is that every rise in wages and shortening of hours is followed bya reduction in the cost of labor and the cost of the article produced and that reduction results in a bigger margin of profit for the employer I r IDIlt uttat- r iGift Df irll11 By FRANCES CLEVENGER going to school being young is of good time of going to matinees of as any

Just now her main object in life is to get an education and those in charge of her should see that is permitted to interfere with her obtaining it Whatever of little dissipations there may be should be confined to Friday and Saturday nights so that you can make up for lost sleep the next morning If you have callers they should not be permitted to stay after half past ten If they do go home at this time and if you are too shy to ask them to go and as consequence father or mother does it for you do not be so foolish as to get angry and consider that your caller has been insulted Your parents know that girl going to schoolneeds e all the sleep she can get and if the young fellow is gentleman he will look upon the rebuke in the spirit in which it was given In your thirst for good time do not think to ape older sister by having a flirtation and beau Nothing is more silly in girl of your age and nothing more likely to be productive of conse quencesNo girl going to school is of knowing enough about men to exercise sufficient judgment in choosing When she gets out of school she will have plenty of time to look around her bit and then when she has reached mature age to choose In the

that a loft over tho store was to lot One day lately a prospective tenant applied and expressed himself as pleased with the location and quarters as well M the terms As to alterations he had only one thing to suggest namely that the stair steps ba fixed to the top floor with a pair of stoat hinges and cords be attached so that they might bo railed and lowered In a way best illustrated perhaps by the attachments of a are escape Anxious to got a tenant and seeing no particular obJec- tion to this arrangement the land lord complied His tenant a quiet man was wont to go to his quarters early In the forenoon and at once draw the steps up to the ceiling A few only of his many visitors those in fact who gave a peculiar whistle were accommodated by the lowering of the steps The others wero Ig

the new Pa quln skirt which hue aroused a itorm of comment curiosity and questions It IB a beautiful skirt I think though for a time I stood qulto alone In that belief A skirt that clings BO closely to tho figure that a strained dragged erect In only prevented by the soft folds over front and back Introduced by the muter hand of Paquin It Is these folds suggestive of the linos of a habit skirt that dif ferentiate the Paquln model from the familiar sheath skirt of several years agoI have boon BO besieged with quo lions regarding It that It occurred to me that this letter gave mo an excel lent opportunity to gather my thoughts coherently together and to give a formulated expression of them to alt who aro Interested And that Is a largo number For when a change of this kind comes t- oula change so startling so radical so diametrically opposed to overt thing that has gone before It the natural psychological process Is a gradation from amused Interest through reluctant admiration to foal enthusiastic adoption I will toll you a little Incident that occurred at the tlmo of Its debut In Paris It was one night at Durand Half tho Englishspeaking world of Paris goes to DurandlI and 1 was of that halt that night A woman swept across the floor to a tablo near the far end of the salon Thoro was no need to ask who oho was and only the Innato good brooding of tho women loitering over their suppers kept a score of lorgnottv from being raised In her direction Madame Paquln nt any time with her grace and beauty Is an object of Interest to Parlsionnes but Madam Paquin In a new Paquln creation holds an insatiable Interest for tho world at largo Thoro was no question that night nor the next day when all Paris Will talking of tho new Paquln skirt of lUgYoguo or Its beauty Tho only question every French woman was asking herself was Can I wear ItT Will It bo poa slblo to adapt It to mot When I returned from Paris full ot 4 enthusiasm for tho now skirtan on thulium Inspired I frankly confess not so much by Paqulns belief In his Sown creation aa by tho concrete example of Its effectiveness on tho beau tiful Mmo Paquln my ardor was con siderably dampened by the attitude ot unenlightened and unapprcclatlve AmericaAmerican women are too selfcon BclouB Now I havo said something that hAl been on my mind for a long tlmo A Frenchwoman will spend hours on her toilette and when she has finished her dress la complotd perfect a part of herself ijhe did misses It from her mind and Is no moro conscious of it than sho Is of tho gestures of her beautiful whlto hands or the Inherited vivacity of tho Gallic race that plays over her piquant face Dut with usl Aro other peoplo wear Ing ItT Is the question that Indicates a subservient attitude which would I rather clothe Itself In Inconspicuous mediocrity than take tho risk of being original t And so when I presented the Pa quln skirt there wore no expressions of delight over tho possibilities un limited which It presented as a me dium of Individuality for ovory woman Oh how very odd was the uni versal comment accompanied by a i halfconcealed smile It really makes her look like a top and the smile would broaden Into a ripple of sheer amused laughter whllo mt poor model strode from the room Indignant at ridiculeAnd theI then the laughter would and the scoffer bo surprised Into aI halfunwilling admiration of tho graceful swaying figure Its beautiful con tour outlined defined emphasized by the cJInglBC shcathllko skirt The very woman who will raise an objection to tho Paquin skirt will go to a glorious struggle with tho surf accompanied by several men of her acquaintance and emerge looking like nothing quite so much In the world as a beautiful unconscious seanymph- la she immodest Certainly not ono American woman In a thouSAndno- nor one In a hundred thousand would call her so Yet this same woman will sIt downand think for a long tlmo before she will commit herself to to gown that so much as suggests the gracious curved lines of her body And her French sister who will do ploro with significant gestures of upraised bands and shoulders the Im modesty of mixed bathing and will bo decorously rolled to tho edge of the water in her bath wagon will adopt tho now skirt with no compro hension of tho qualms of tho Amen can I Perhaps It Is because I have lived so much abroad that I can see more east ly and clearly from the French point of view than from tho American And then to me tho possibilities of bpau ty In something now appeal most pow erfully v Yet In reality tho PaquIn skirt Is not new nor can wo claim It as an ox elusive Invention of the twentieth cen tury More than 100 years ago the French recognized Its possibilities and dovoloped them into what have coma down to us as tho Dlrectolro styles Not ot tho skirt alone Is this true but of tho coats that accompany It Shortwalstcd affairs they aro with full cutaway skirts ovorolaborato fanciful If you will but graceful and charming nevertheless It may take a little time before tho American woman will glvo tho Paquin skirt hor generous unqualified approval nut I am optimistic and I timly believe that year by year wp grow In appreciation ot tho beautiful In a broader conception of tho truo significance of lovely lines and colors and that given time wo eventually accept the boat that Is offered to us In reverting to this older typo ot dross I can frankly say I am glad of tho changer not that I like chango merely becauso It moans novelty but because f welcome it when It stands for eithotlo dovolopment And BO I say very emphatically that I do like the Paquln skirt that I hope though I cannot prophesy that It will havo a longlived vogue Paquin has adopted It and Paqutn leads Paris as Paris leads tho world You and I follow but I nny1thingmoro Intelligently and moro appre ciatively well and good But It your taste and judgment reject It my dear madamo remember that you havo qulto as good a right to your opinion ns I havo to mine Indeed I havo an honest contempt for the woman who will adopt a fashion merely because It Is fashionable and decry It as hideous unsightly impossible Velvet Medallion Tho making of tho velvet medallion is a thing which a wpman should understand If sho Is going to do her own dressmaking The medallion Is shaped llko an oval or a circle and Is worked In colored silks and Is used as a skIrt trimming Halt a dozen aro placed around tho skirt at regular Intervals and connected with bands of velvet No dressier trimming can bo found for tho suit of broadcloth h t ROBBIE

perfect success for preparing ground for small grain ORIGIN OF CORN Plant Was First Grown Under Trop- Ical or SubTropical Condition As to tho origin of the corn plant thero is a general agreement among authorities that it developed among tropical or subtropical conditions As to the hemisphere In which It orig inated thero has been considerable discussion but the consensus of opinion among tho botanists of today Is that It originated In America The eminent French botanist Do Candolle after considering tbo evidence rela tive to its origin says From all these facts wo conclude that maize Is not a native of the old world It be came rapidly diffused In it after the discovery of America and thin very rapidity completes the proof that had It existed anywhere In Asia or Af rica It would have played an im portant part In agriculture for thousands of years He then goes on to show the greater antiquity of corn In America Ho says that when Amen ca was discovered It was a staple crop from the La Plata to the United States had names in ovary native language and was found in the tombs of tho Mound Builders of North America the tombs of the Incas and in catacombs of Peru Ho further mentions its connection with the ro Hgtous ceremonies of tho ancient Mexicans and Peruvians and argues from this a very great antiquity In those regions tor it to have become so supremely Important The fact that there was a number of varieties of corn in America when the Europeans also points to a long period of cultivation previous to that time Do Candollo In to the belief that New Granada was the original homo of the corn plant Since tho discovery of America corn has been carried to practically all parts of tho world where the condl bona aro at all favorable to its growth and wo may expect that dur- Ing the present century it will bo taken to many moroo A Crosth wait GROUND PHOSPHATE ROCK It Has a High Value When Mixed In with Barnyard Manures Wo aro moro than over convinced of the great value to every farmer ot using ground phosphate rock in hit stables and in his manure heaps The natural phosphate has been works d out of a largo proportion of our soils Farmers notice a growing uncertainty In their grain crop They lay It to the seasons but the real difficulty is that the soil has lost some of its original elements Tho soil is like tho animal body in its demand for food The three things nitrogen phosphorus and potash that tho body requires In food tho land requires All this summer long just as in pre vious summers every farmer has been piling up manuro from his horses and some from his cattlo in tho barnyard and it has been rained upon and the hot sun has shone on It and a very largo part of Its valuo has gono into tho air How easy it would have been to have provided ones self with phos photo rock and sprinkled the manuro sufficientainountmonla which is nitrogen Then when tho farmer hauls out that manuro In the fall to tho meadow land that ho Is to plant with corn next spring ho not only has saved a great waste of nitrogen but ho has added tho very phosphorus the soli needs As farmers says a writer in Hoards Dairyman we must begin to organize our knowledge and thought moro in tho line of getting Neck to the original fertility of our land Sea sods havo effect but they do not play as great a part as we think Somehow It will be noticed that good rich welldrained land gives a fair crop in almost any kind of a season Tho first thought of a good farmer should bo tho keeping up of tho fertility of his land It is almost a crimo to handle manuro so as to waata the most valuable part of It 1 MOLDY CORN I I It Should Not Be Put in Crib with the Other Corn There Is a variety of cxpressloas about the moldy corn says a writer la the Bloomington III Pantograph Most farmers think there is not so much as last year heIsurprised when the first load came In to find quite a large amount of It and said that none of It should go into the crib that he thought if the weather got damp and warm it would help to spoil other corn in the crib Another farmer who usually looks pretty closely to his corn said that he got two ears from the field about a month ago before the corn was very bard one of them was of the type he selected for seed and the other one was partly affected with the dry mold so prevalent last year Without think tag oj what might happen he tied the two ears together and hung them oa the north side of a building where they had remained On taking them down recently the seed car was found to be moldy on the side next to the other ear for a space of five or six rows wide Not a few farmers are of the opine I ion that the mold lives in the soil or in tho rubbish of the field especially If the moldy ears are thrown down when found or are left In the field and thus is carried over from year io year Perhaps the mold Is not so apparent this season as usual because of a lack of just the kind of weather to propagate it- One of tho best corn experts In the state H A Winter of Wenona said last year he believed that this dry rot may havo been the cause of so much poor seed com It frequently happens that an otherwise good looking ear has a trace of mold around tho tips of tho grains Just next tho cob perhaps only on ono side or ono end and so Is over looked when the seed selection is made j It seems as if it would bo a good time to stamp out tho mold when there is a small amount of It by do stroying every ear that can bo found From what is known of this disease it certainly would bo a safe and prac tical thing to take special pains to pre vent any of the moldy cars from re maining In tho field or the corn crib to contaminate sound corn Instead pf dropping a moldy car to tho ground or letting It remain In tho husk on tho stalk when discovered every such ear should Ibe snapped and thrown into a box attached to the side of tho wagon When unloading at the crib every ear at all affected with the mold should bo separated from the other corn throwing It Into a box or barrel provided for the purpose There Is very little feeding value even for pigs and chickens In corn so dam aged and It would better be destroyed by burning A DITCHING SCRAPER I There should bo a ditching scraper on every farm They can be pur chased rondo of steel but a homemade ono such as shown In sketch costs little and is qulto serviceable says the Farm and Homo Take two planks each ten Inches wide and throe feet long of good twoInch hardwood Bolt to them securely a pair of old plow handles To the bot tom bolt an old crosscut saw blade which will make a sharp edge Let these project about an Inch at the bottom Attach two singletree hooks near each end of tho lower board and your scraper is ready to use With this scraper and two men I cut a ditch onefourth mile long and as deep as It could bo plowed with a turning plow In two days time It is also very uso ful In filling holes in the highway HINTS FOR THE FARMER i Every man ought to have pride enough to keep tho road post his farm In good repair In the fall preparations must bo made for many of tho spring crops either plowing the land or manuring It Keep the land as rich as possible Angleworms work more in rich land than in poor land and they constantly Improve the soil In yielding their harvests the fields have been feeding you Now In return you

partner If ho learns to say and mean we Instead of I or the boss the chances are ho will not want to leave you The old Idea that well rotted manuro was the best thing under all clrcum stances Is an exploded ono Much of tho value of manure Is lostby having it rot outside of tho soil Manure Handled Right We saw a barn the other day which had never been stained up from the accumulation of manure along the sides In tact no manuro was ever thrown out Every day It was thrown Into a spreader and when It was full the manuro went onto tho meadows Short Feeding- A short feed and a right feed IB

jand oornesUiew to give an administration that will meet with the approval of all the peope In his sot speech the Governor salt that he was ready to mako a sacred pledge to the people for the faithful performance of his duty by tho State the Constitution and the law He said he was possessed of an untalter ing faith hope and courage and would be tho Governor of all the people of the State regardless of political lines He said ho would sacrifice his life to the service of the people who had intrusted him with their government He said that all the citizens had ac cepted the result of the election and that there was no hato or bitterness among the people In reference to the enforcement of tho laws the new Governor ald the law commanded obedi ence and did not request It He said j that every citizen was entitled to the protection of the law and to live in peace and safety He said every man was entitled to his liberty and protection in the pur suit of happiness Ho deplored vio lence and disorder and said that the law had to be upheld In conclusion he touched on the present apportion ment of Kentucky and appealed to the sense of fairness of Democrats to correct any unfairness that might result from thejpresent statutes In one of the first remarks he made after his Inauguration the Governor showed that ho meant to live up to his promises by saying that lie would at once send enough troops to Hop thingtThe day of the inauguration was cold and there was first rain then snow but the crowd was one of the largest ever seen at an Inauguration t and there was a warm greeting from the people to the new governor The ceremonies took place In a largo stand In front of the Legislative building Gov Beckham and Govelect Wlllson rode to the stand together In a carriage and Mr Beckham after a very brief speech Introduced Mr Wlllson to the people When he could make his voice heard above the cheering Mr Willson delivered the speech al ready outlined then turned to Chief Justice ORear and said Mr ChiefI Justice I am ready to take the With hand uplifted his face pale and his mouth firmly set he listened to the reading of the oath of office then signified his loyalty to the Common wealth and the Constitution by a firma I do and a nod of his head The political feature of the week besides the Inauguration has been the Presidents positive statement to several men who have called on him and to two senntorsthat he will not run for It is pose ble that he will make another public statement but he is not likely to as he has already made one very strong one and has repeated it several times and does not feel that it would be sayingtheknown however that he has got after f the office holders who are shouting for a third term and that several of the most prominent

Prosecution Closing Weak Case Against PowersDefense to Show i Hand This Week The trial of Caleb Powers Is at Its critical stage this week The pros ecution has nearly finished and has had Youtsey on the stand again repeating his Improbablo story Tho de fense will begin before the end of the week and a few more days will show tho strength of the new evidence which Powers has and the chances for his acquittal Last week the Jury was taken to Frankfort to des the scene of the shooting and then returned to Georgetown where the prosecution continued the presentation of its wit nesses Over fifty of them have been on the stand and of these only four besides Wharton Golden and Youtsey have connectod Powers with the crime Tho mania effort of thq prosecution has been to prove conspiracy rather than actual connection with the shoot ing and even In this there has been only partial success In several points the prosecution has broken down Judge Hazolrigg who was called to identify Jim Howard as the man who left the State House soon afer the shooting was unable to do so Robert Noaks whose aft davit telling ot wrong methods by the prosecution was admitted and who was called to the stand to testify that the affidavit was false and that he had been paid for it was hopelessly discredited and his testi mony against Powers VMS made to lose all its force because he got so badly mixed up that no one could tell the truth from the falsehoods The prosecution has had a great deal of testimony about the excitement in Frankfort befogs the shooting and the expressions used by the Re pubHcans against Goebel and has been trying to make out that this indigna tion against the stealing of the elec tion and defiance of the votes of the people of the state was a widespread conspiracy Except for Golden and Youtsey practically nothing has been said on the stand that Would really Indicate that the Republican lead ers were plotting a murder Golden and Youtsey have ot courso been the star witnesses The former was called first and told a straight story Then he was cross examined and got a little mixed but mostly he seemed to have learned his story as a child learns the alphabet and his telling It did riot make It seem true At best it proved very little against anyone Youtsey told the same story he did at the last trlato story that made It seem as If all the Republi cans in Frankfort had Joined together to kill Goebel and had told all kinds of people friends and foes about it If his story Is true it is a wonder that the prosecution has not been able to get a hundred witnesses that knew all about it instead of two or three whose honesty is doubted and a lot that do not know anything Ills story proves too much and it seems that It the prosecution has noth Ing better this will be

the Farmer For His Own Interest The farmers composing tho Grange an organization that has dono much to study tbo real Interests of tho farmer has been taking a good deal of Interest In tho subject of taxation lately and somo very pertinent ut torances on this question have been given out In tho addresses ot tho Masters at annual sessions of various otate Oranges At a recent meeting of tho Washington Stato Orange the Master gave considerable attention to too question of taxation Ho said In part I urgo every Grange In this stato to tako up tho study of taxation in all Its phases earnestly and seriously during the coming year for I feel strongly that wo farmers have hard ly realized tbo Importance of thor oughly understanding the fundamental principles o taxation In considering the subject of state taxes in the brief time I have been able to give it since my mind has been fully aroused to Its importance I have como to doubt very much the wisdom of our present method of as sessing state taxes Section 2 of Ar Ucle 7 of our state constitution Is as follows The legislature shall pro vide by law a uniform and equal rate ot assessment and taxation on all property in the state according to its value In money This Is the general property tax similar to Kentucky The above constitutional provision II similar to that of many of the west era states and enjoins a system of taxation which has been tried In prao tically all the states of the Union It requires the application of the same rules of taxatloa to forms of property totally different ia character Most of tho older states such as New York Connecticut Massachusetts New Jer sey and Pennsylvania have constitu Lions which Impose no restraint on the power of the legislature or Tory little more restraint than that imposed by tho federal constitution Those states have developed systems of taxation more in harmony with modern condl tone Tho attempt to tax all kinds of property by the samo rules has In all times and In all countries imposed heavier burdens upon rural districts than cities and in a largo degree has measured tho tax to bo paid by each citizen by the amount of his con sumption rather than by the oppor unity ho enjoys to acquire wealth under tho protection of tho state Tho plan adopted by our neigh bar Oregon Is to apportion tho stato tax in proportion to tho reve flue raised by each county Oregon made tho mistake of not carrying out the principle to its logical conclusion Tho tax should bo apportioned In proportion to tho entire revenue raised by each county and nil the taxing dls tricts within each county It Is very easy to BCD that tho more highly developed and more densely populated a county maybe the room money it needs for local purposes in proportion to its taxable values and tho greater is tho power to pay taxes Tho tax apportioned in this manner will shift from tho poorer and remote rural counties the burden they now boar and imposo it on the more thickly settled and prosperous coun ties This change would do away with tho universal temptation to un dervalue property in ordxjr to shift the stato tax to other communities A study of tho experience of other states shows that ono of tho greatest evils has been this incentive to undervalue It produces inequality and dlssatlsfac ion If Jot Uownjlght fraud The Ohio State Grange- In Ohio they are proposing an amend ment to the constitution that will per mit of a classification of the sources of revenue such as Is now in effect in Pennsylvania The difficulty with tae Ohio constitution Is exactly similar to that In Kentucky They are proposing there an amendment to the constitution which will mako it read this way Taxes shall be levied at a uniform rnto upon nil property 61 the same class Tho Ohio constltu tlon now requires that taxes shall be uniform upon all classes of property the provision being similar to that of tho constitution of Kentucky The Master Honorable F A Dorthlck commenting upon thoiiroposcd amendment to tho constitution said To pull up every stake In our con stitution seems heroic treatment and it done would throw upon the people added responsibility in tho selection of their representatives If classifica tion Is to be tho plan adopted It should bo left to a commission of at least five members appointed by the governor ono from each of the four sisters whoso combined efforts have mado us all wo areono from manu facture ono from mining ono from commerce one from agriculture This board should bo reinforced by the appointment ot a member of wellknown integrity and great legal ability The farmers arc not committed to tho Idea of classification but wo wish to join In the study of tax revision The Ohio btAte Orange assembled In annual session December 11 to 13 1906 by a unanimous vote expressed tho desire of an organized body of taxpayers fifty thousand strong to cooperate with all other interests In do wising a tax system
