I his volcq was so drowned out by the torrents of water that ho had to stop Music was called for and the audience joined In singing a couplo of well known hymns The shower bad passed by that time and

Page TWg GREAT MOVEMENTS During the coming summer appeals will be mode to tho people of this stnlo for support of two movements which mean more to Ken tucky and Keutuckiaus than any other two that could be selected the movements for good roads end good schools In fact the movements have really already begun TIlt good roads campaign hus been launched at Eliza etbtown and the school campaign will soon begin all over tho state When Kentucky has good roads and good schools she will take her rightful place at the head of the column of states Tho lock of them is doing more than all else combined to hold her back and to handicap her eons in the race for wealth aud success In attacking those two things the wise men who are backing tho campaigns have picked strategic points in the battle for progress These two things will bring almost else thnt is desirable and nothing much can be done till they are accomplished Good schools mean progress for all No set of colleges can reach more than a small part of the people aud many would have to grow up Ignorance unless it wero for tho free schools Tho better they are tho better each citizen will be and therefore the better it will bb for the whole elate and every other citizen in it Supt Crabbe is in many respects the most important officer of the state for ho is at the head of the machinery that is building tip the citizenship of the future He is right in laying all possible emphasis on the work and Lila campaign should moot with prompt and hearty response from every man that cares either for himself for his children or for his state There is a lot more patriotism in working to see that there is a good school teacher in your district than in making a loud noise on election day or boasting how strong you are for your party which every one is And good roads mean business prosperity They mean easy ac cess to the worlds markets whether you want to buy or sell They mean that you can get moro money for your stock and more goods for your money They mean getting in dieter touch with the world and all the progress there is in it They mean easier teaming long er lives for your horses and wagons bigger loads foryour teamsters easier travelin fact an improvement along all the lines of prosper aud progress The Bosworth Wyatt good roads amendment which will be voted on next fall will enable the state to help the poorer counties in the building of roads but the matter is so import ant that there should bo no delaying for this and good roads should be built as fast as possible everywhere A good road builder is more valuable to n community than a cheap politician Both these great movements depend to some extent on you and me that is they must have popular opinion behind them Wo should not only talk for them but we shoul be willing to work for them and spend money for them Both work and money would be mighty well invested And wo should talk for them nil the time re membering always that they must be the next steps in the progress of the state we nil love COLLEGE PLANS Few Changes In Teaching Force For Next YearMr Matheny To Be Back Adjustment Fund Nearly Raised More Pay For College Workers With

College for several terms Mr nomineeIover by a handnorao majority In the primary last fall lie Is not only the Democratic candidate for the post tion of County Attorney but In real ity Is the logical candidate of the people He is an able young attorney and deserving of the suffrage of every man in the county who believes Iin the establishment of equity and justice and that governments derive their just power from the consent of the governed In other words a government of the people by tho people and for tho people If elected to tho high position by the people to which his party has called him tho constituency of Old Madison may rest assured that their every Interest will be safely guarded And we feel confluent that the people will stand by Jackson like tho Greeks stood by their charge In the pass at Ther mopolao and will elect him by one of the largest votes ever poled for the office In the history of the county Ono summer evening a miller was leaning over hla garden gate facing tho

Weekl LetterWashington D C June 12 1909 President Taft seems likely to earn tho right to the title The Great Compromiser as fairly as Henry Clay It is said that In the Philippines and as Secretary of War this knack of bringing about compromises was often noticeable but no ono expected an exhibition of U so soon in Washington His proposal is that the Insurgent Republicans In Con gress rejoin the party leaders on condition that the latter consent to a tax on corporations Tho Aldrich tae tion is willing to consent to this tax for a two year term only The re form element has not yet decided whether or not to accept this substitute for Its long foughtfor Income tax but tho chances are that a sum dent number of them will decide to accept the compromise so that the measure will pass The truth is that the Republicans who have been attacking their lead ers have never felt very comfortable President Taft Is said to fear that their action In unison with the Demo crats would result In some legisla tion for which the Democrats could claim credit Another consideration Is the fact that the Democrats are by no means staunch In their support of socalled Democratic policies On the Iron ore vote 17 Democrats voted for protection and 10 Republicans against 1t The factions which are opposing Aldrich and the Finance Commltteo are unable to get togeth er and therefore must fall It Is true that Bailey aud Cummins have finally come to an agreement on an income tax bill which both will sup port but their followers at best on ly numbered enough to give then a majority of two on the Income tax proposition and now it is thought that unquestionably several of Cum- mins adherents will go back Into the machine and vote fur President Tafts suggested corporation tax On Friday tho Income tax proposition will finally conic up for decision and if the Aldrich forces wii the bill will be passed as a whole by the Senate shortly after that time The final struggle on tile tarlfl will como In tho conference between committees of tho Senate and the House as to whether the bill as passed by the one or the other body shill bo tho final law Thero will bo ninny concessions made on both sides For Instance this week Aldrich has had the 15 per cent protective tax put back on hides from which tho House bad taken it and this is not because be expects to have hides taxed In the tint bill but because he wants something to swap to the House for concession on their part It Is now universally admitted that President Taft will be one of the arbitrators throughout this confer once between the two houses Since this conference is the most Important ot all the steps In tho tariff making It seems evident that tho President tins had the gpod judgement to simp ly await for tho decisive time to come before stepping In But It la not expected that ho will endeavor to lower the rates unduly as the Senate rebels had hoped One pleasant feature of tho weeks news hero has been the cutting down of Government expenditures In navy of the Departments The Navy is to save a largo sum by removing the sailors from many of the battle ships retaining merely enough to form skeleton crews which can bo quickly expanded In case of need The Army Is making similar reductions It Is thought that these ec onomics of Mr Taft will alone make tin for the deficit of the passing year cud will ensure the absence ot a do fllr next year flit House of Representatives finally passed the Porto RIcan Bill this wcik nppraently merely to have over with It The bill provides that la case the Porto Rican legislature refuse to vote appropriations for carrying on the government the last years appropriations shall be renewed automatically so that tho RdurnMnUora of Porto Rico can con tnuo work unhampered by delay President Taft presented medals of honor to the famous Wright brothers of Dayton Ohio Inventors of the American flying machine or aeroplane which has astonished the entire world during the past year The p- Inion expressed on that occasion was that the Wright brothers will rank- In history as the greatest of Americas splendid list of Inventive geniuses l II 7 M foc I I oelo ceof oi sect

make It appear as we predicted they would that the Republican administration and not the Democratic legislature Is responsible for the present deficit Io in the state treasury Among othertI things they charge that the amount 1 spent by Gov Willson In attempting I to maintain tho law In tho tobacco district Is the mum of the deficit and ot course they say that ho should not have tried to maintain the law i A statement Issued by Auditor James shows that out ot a deficit of 500000 or thereabout only 160000 t I was spent for the uso of troops So S IIt is evident that Is not tho cause of tho deficit Moreover at the time of the meeting of the leglsla I Lure it was known that this money S l was being spent and it was theaduty oC the legislature to provide for It But the realtrouble was that I the legislature would not take time s to study tho finances and appropriat- eI lot of mosey which It did not haVe I Yarning was given at the time but no attention was paid to It The j eglslaturo is the real cause of tho j deficit and GoV Willson has done nothing to merit tho abuso the Demo I rats are giving him Moreover the Imo has not yet come as the Demo I rats will find out when they cant make political capital against the r Governor by trying to blame him for doing his duty and upholding tho law 5 GOVERNOR COMPLIMENTED A high compliment has been paldt I Joy Wlllson by the

Loiter Washington D C June 12 1909 President Taft seems likely to earn the right to the title The Great Compromiser as fairly as Henry Clay It is said that in the Philip pines and as Secretary of War this knack of bringing about compromises was often noticeable but no ono ex pected an exhibition of It so soon In Washington His proposal is that the Insurgent Republicans in Con gress rejoin tho party leaders ou con dition that the latter consent to a tax on corporations Tho Aldrich fac tlotj is willing to consent to this tax for a two year term only Tho reform element has not yet decided whether or not to accept this substitute for Its long fbughtfor Income tax but tho chances are that a sum cleat number of them will decide to accept the compromise so that the measure will pass The truth is that the Republicans who have been attacking their leaders have never felt very comfortable President Taft Is said to fear that their action in unison with the Demo crate would result In some legislation for which tho Democrats could claim credit Another consideration Is tho fact that tho Democrats are by no means staunch in their sup port of socalled Democratic policies On the iron ore vote 17 Democrats voted for protection and 10 Republi cans against It The factions which are opposing Aldrich and the Finance Committee are unable to get togeth er and therefore must fall It la true that Bailey and Cummins have finally como to an agreement on an Income tax bill which both will sup port but their followers at best on ly numbered enough to give them a majority of two on the income tax proposition and now It is thought that unquestionably several of Cum- mins adherents will go back Into the machine and vote for President Tafts suggested corporation tax On Friday tho Income tax proposition will finally come up for decision and if the Aldrich forces win tho bill will be passed as a whole by tho Senato shortly after that time The final struggle on the tariff will como in the conference between committees of tho Senate and the House as to whether tho bill as pass ed by tho one or tho other body shall be the final law There will bothISldeBtax put back on hides from which the Houso had taken it and this is not because ho expects to havo hides taxed In the final bill but because he wants something to swap to tho House for concession on their part It is now universally admitted that President Taft will be one of the arbitrators throughout this confer ence between tho two houses Since this conference Is the most Important of all the stops in time tariff making It seems evident that tho President has bad the good judgement to simp ly await for tho decisive time to come before stepping in But It is not expected that ho will endeavor- to lower the rates unduly as tho Senate rebels had hoped Ono pleasant feature of tho weeks news hero has been the cutting down of Government expenditures In many of the Departments The Navy is to save a largo sum by removing tho sailors from many of the battle ships retaining merely enough to form skeleton crews which can bo quickly expanded In case of need The Army is making similar reduc tions It is thought that these economics of Mr Taft will alone make up for the deficit of the passing year and will ensure the absence of a tie lid next year Tho Houso of Representatives fin ally pawed the Porto RIcan Bill this wctk apparently merely to have over with it The bill provides that la ease the Porto Rican legislature refuse to vote appropriations for carrying on tho government tho last years appropriations shall be renewed automatically so that tho adm n tratow of Porto Rico can continue work unhampered by delay President Taft presented medals of honor to the famous Wright brothers of Dayton Ohio Inventors of tho American flying machine or aeroplane which has astonished the entire world during the past year Tho op- Inion expressed on that occasion was that the Wright brothers will rank- In history as the

On approaching Cary Mercer the colonel was snubbed Winter aided by Archie cleverly frustrated a holdup on the train He took a great likIng to Miss Smith despite her alleged connection with the kidnaping plot which he had not yet revealed to his relatives Tho party arrived In San was thought that there were big persons be hind the holdup gang Archie Fruitless search was conducted for Archie Blood In a near by room at the hotel caused fears for the boys life No headway was mado In the search for Archie The lads voice was heard over the telephone however and a minute later n womans voice

Miss Janet Col Winter to himself admitted that ho loved Miss Smith Mercer told Winter that Archie had overheard plans for a coup which Mercer and his friends wanted to carry out For that reason Archie

smiled brilliantly as ho answered Ill take It into consideration butwill you ezcuso met I want to speak to Mr Mercer about the stove The moment he had removed his affable young presence Blrdsall approached hIs employer It had been a difficult quarter of nn hour with the detective Vague instinct warned him not to touch the subject of Miss Smith he felt in no way assured about anything else The result had been that bo had fidgeted In silence But the accumulated flood could no longer be held Ive found out one thing exploded Blrdsall puffing in the haste of his ut terance The boy is on the prem lees Think sot was all the colonels answerIm sure of It Say I overheard Mercer talking down a opeaklngtubo What did ho say Talked French damn him But say whats gorge ThroatWhats cuplllo gorge Sure he wasnt talking of a car riage ar did ho say jo lo coupcral la gorgeMaybe I wouldnt swear to it I dont parlez francais a little bit Did you hear any other noises Where were they tOO Blrdsall thought he had heard other noises and that they wore down cellar And anyhow colonel Im dead to rights sure thoso guys are giving us hot stuff to get us out of the house Im for getting oifr men In now and rushing the honse Its me for tho cellarWhile the colonel was rolling Bird sills information around in his mind Iw heard the echo of stops on the flag ging which preceded Mercer and the other man There was that in the bearing and the look of them that made the watch er t zed to tht signs of decision on meat faces instantly sure that their whole course of plans and action was changedMorcer spoko that and in a low tone to tLi colonel I hftrt no right said he to ask so much trust from you but will you trust me enough to step aside with this young man and me for a moment onlyout of earshot I give pry my word of honor I mean no sllsktest harm to you I want to be frank I will go alone If you desire The colonel eyed him Intently for the briefest space Ill trust you ealtl he Then I think you have the key to this queer mlzup At your service And let your friend come too Ho is an ingenuous sort and be amuses me- 111rdsalllooked distinctly sullen jrer the request to wait Intimating smite frankly that his employer was walking Into a hay 1 wont stand hero thore than 15 minutes he grumbled Ive given those fellows poco Ucnte long tnough But the colonel Insisted on i 20 minutes and reluctantly Blrdsall acquiescedMercer conducted the others to the library When they were seated he began in his composed melancholy fashionI beg of you to listen to me and to believe me for your nephews sake It is the only way now When you came we handed him over to this gentleman exactly as we have said I do not know why he should have been stopped I do not know why ho loft the machine Might ho not havo been carried away t said Winter Ho might but I dont know what motiveWhat motive had you You kid naped him Not exactly We had no Intention of harming him Ho came accidental ly into the room between Mrs Win ters and Mr Keatchams suites Stand- Ing in that room trying to stanch tho bleeding of a sudden hemorrhage of the nose he overheard mo and my friend You asked the colonel laconical ly of the young Harvard man I smilingly confessed the latter I am ready to own up You are a decent fellow and you are shrewd You ought to be on our side not fighting us I tell you you dont want to have the boy turn up safe and sound any more than I do Mr Mer Con was talking to me and the kid overheard We heard him and went into the room HowKnocked on the door and he opened it And wo jumped on him It was life and death for us not to bo blown on so as we didnt wish to kill the kid and as we didnt know the young ster well enough to trust him then although we might for he Is game and the whitest chapbut we didnt know why we Just told him he would have to stay with us a while until our rush was over That was all wo meant and we let him phone you How about his greatauntthec- ruel anxiety Anxiety nothing began tho other man but a glance from Mercer cut him short The southerner took the word in his slow gentle voice I tried to reassure our aunt Col Winter I think I succeeded She telephoned and I told her it was all right As for Archie after we talked with him ho was willing enough to go He stole out with my friend Inside of five minutes while you all were searching your rooms It was he insisted on calling you up lest you should be worried Ho said you were right afraid of kidnapers and you would be sending the police after us You can call Mrs Winter up and find out if I am not telling you the exact facts Very well I will said Winter They met the sullen detective at the door Cary Mercer with his mirthless smile led the way Mercer rang up the hotel for Winter himself To the colonels vast relief Aunt Rebecca an swered tho call Estce quo cest vousmemo mon nevcu t said she dryly Mats ouL ma taste Why are you speaking so formally in foreign tongues Is Millicent on deck In her room came the answer still in French Well you have got us in a pretty mess Where Is my boyI only wish I knew I Tell me now though is Mercers story straightt Absolutely You may trust him Whats his real game then Tho ono ho was afraid Archlo would ex poseAsk him But you are in It arent you Enough to ask that you abandon the chaseImmediately Unless you wish to ruin me Youll havo to speak plainer Ive been kept in the dark as long as I can stand in this matter But beforo he could finish the sen tenco Pas Icl pnsmalntenantoestt- rap de peril she cried and she must have gone for ho gould get no moro from her When he rang again Ran dan respot led Mrs Winter says sir will you please corns up hero as quick as Tau can Shed gone out She though she caught sight of Mr Archie on the street To the colonels demand Whert how did she see him ho obtained no answer and on his vicious pealing of the bell there came eventually mel low Anglican accents which asked Yes Whom do you wish to see It is an evidence of the undisciplined nature of tho sex that the soldier made a face and hung up the re ceiverHo found himselfalthough this to a really open mind is no excuseIn- a muddle of conflicting Impulses He was on edge to get into the street for the search after the boy ho was clutched in a vise by his conviction that tho clew to Archies whereabouts lay in Mercers hands and that the southerner meant no harm to the lad And all the while ho could foal Bird sail tugging at the leash Its on the cards bn grumbled Mercers Eyes Followed Him with a wry face quite on the cards that he may bolt In spite of me and do some foolish stunt of his own that will mako a most awful muddle Not nearly so composed as he looked therefore he turned to Mercer However his ammunition was ready ana to Mercers Inquiry was ho sat isfied he replied calmly Well not entirely If Archlo isnt In tho house who is it whose throat you wish to cut Who Is hidden here It could not have been an unex p cted question or Mercer hardly had answered so readily You know who it is said he It is Mr Keatcham CHAPTER X The Smoldering Embers If Mercers avowal surprised the colonel thero was no trace of such emotion in his face or his manner I rather thought it might be ho said And our young friend who is promoting tireless stoves with tho solemn energy he learned doing Dicky stuntsMr Endjcott Tracy Mercer had the manner of a ceremonious Introduction Tracy flavored the customary murmur of pleasure with his radiant smilePleased I am sure said tho colonel in turn bowing Your father I suppose is the president of tho Midland and Mr Keatcham will I sup pose not bo ablo to prevent his re election tomorrow Is that tho game Mr Tracys son admitted that It might be Ah very clover said the colonel very Any sideshow for example I did not go Into this for money Mercers level gaze did not relax and he kept his dreary eyes unflinchingly on Winters A peculiar look In tho eyes recalled some tragic and alien memory just what Rupert could not capturo it flitted hazily through his thoughts ere the next words drove it off Nevertheless it is true that If we win out I shall havo enough to pay back to all the people who trusted me the money they lost when they were frightened Into selling their stock In the Tidewater and your aunt and Mr Tracy stand to make money How do you expect to make It The M S stock is away down because of rumors Keatcham Is likely to control It When It is settled it Snot to be looted by him the stock will risewe aro sure of tho ten points we may make 20And my aunt has financed your scheme has shopaid all your ex pens1 ThHarvard man laughed out Our expenses Oh yes she has grub staked us all right but she has done a good deal moreshe has furnished more than half a million to us for our gamble rho colonel considered then But why did you keep him hero so long bo forehand 1 said he It was not long beforehand said Mercer The meeting was adjourned for a daywe dout know whywe fancy that his partners suspect something It is called Stir tomorrow in spite of their efforts to havo it put oft a week But we want more wo want to induce Keatcham to vote his own stock for us and to call off his dogs himselfAnd you cant force him to do it Wo shall force him easily enough returned Mercer but we dont trust him Wo want his private codebook to bo suro he Is playing fair In fact we havo to have it because nothing gets any attention that Isnt so to speak properly Introduced And he will not give It to out Says ho has lost it Perhaps ho has mused the soldier But now all this Is not my concern except that I have no right as a sol dlor oven passively to aid In breaking tho laws It Is my duty to rescue and free Mr Keatcham Before ho could speak further Mer cer lifted a hand in apologetic Inter ruption Would Col Winter excuse him but ho must ask Mr Tracy to go back to tho patio and have an eye on the detective Endicott only ex changed a single glanco before ho obeyed Mercers eyes followed him It was not to be helped he said half to himself but I have been sorry more than once that I had to take him into this Winter looked at him more puz zled than ho wanted to admit to him self Indeed he was rather glad to havo the next word come from Mercer- I have a few things I want to say to you they go easier when wo are alonebut wont you sit down When tho colonel had seated himself he went on Id like to explain things a bit Id like to have you answered the soldier I think you have the clew to Archies whereabouts and dont recog nize it yourself so put me wise as tho slang goes Then without preface In brief nor vous sentences spoken hardly with a jjulvcr of a muscle or a wavering cadence of the voice yet nevertheless earncstnessI terest was paid there was

That was Keatchams private seer tary you say Yes sub Atkins You met him on the trainas sleek and deadly a little scoundrel as over got rich quick Ob hes deep Well sub you know the usual process Convinced of tho value of the property Kcatcham and ono or two others set out to buy It They got little blocks of It hero and there Then Atkins wroto me In confidence that somo men were after the con

before I didnt borrow his money but I took all I could raise myself and I bought enough to bo suro I could control the next election Then tbo slump came and after the slump tho long slow crum bling I

hours embittered by It Thats enough for me When I got homo with wh Phil she was dead Tough said tho colonel He began to revise his impressions of MercerWasnt it the other asked with a simplicity of appeal that affected the listener more than anything he hat heard Ho jumped out of his chair and began pacing tho room talking moro rapidly Youre a man you know what I wanted to do Kill somebody I

one section may not do well for you therefore you should save your own seeds when you have a successful variety Many seeds loose their vit ality after one years time and as a rule seeds should not be used af ter they are a year old Some exceptions to this rule may be found For the starting of plants early In the spring the hotbed Is essential this will be discussed in Its season Garden seeds nhould be always sow In straight rows regardless of whore the planting Is made It a window box Is used for starting early plants In a dwelling straight rows about 2 Inches apart give the best results The same rule of straight rows holds true for nil planting cultivating and thinning can more easily be accom plished and the plants will be a uniform size maturing all at the same time Seeds should be planted at a depth of from 3 to 5 times their average thickness In heavy clay and moist soils tho covering should bs lighter than in sandy and dry soils To be continued and who wish to continue their

know It they are attacked and hurt With other backsliders sin Is a deepsoatod Alt ease and needs constitutional treatI mont Blessed fact It is that Jesus Christ is surgeon for the wounded and physician for the diseased Ills blood is equally good for wound am disease We need not stop to discuss the different methods of treatment Tho fact that healing Is possible Is the thing which Interests us now and wo can safely leave the methods to the physician in whoso bands wo hatplaced our case LoveI will love them freely Tho won freely means that he loves of himself trot because he sees traits of character that call forth his love but Just because ho cannot help It It Js his nature Tho backslider Is apt to be discouraged by the thought that God does not love him because by bls sins ho has made himself so unlovely It Is true my friend that a backslider is an unlovely character but take heart God does not love you because you aro lovely but because he Is loving Quiet Gentleness I will be as tho dew unto Israel The dew does Its work by gentle cot tact and It is quiet In its working There Is no sound of saw or hammer God Is as the lion against those who refuse to repent He is as tho dew unto every penitent soul reviving weak and struggling life But sas the backslider I am in the dark 1 have no comfort Yes but romcmbo tho dow does itA work In the dark It distills In the night In the night of your penitent grief let God deal wityou In gentleness and love He shall grow as tho lily The lily grows rapWly And when a backslider has truly repented he may grow In grace with great rapidity While living in sin ho has not grown a particle lIe has been stunted and withered But with a consciousness of being healed and loved freely and now enveloped In Gods care as tho plant Is enveloped In the refreshing dew hocannot help growing like the lily Stability He shall cast forth his roots Hk Lebanon Tho Illy Is frail You cat break It or uproot It with your finger But not so with tho Cedar of Lebanon Its roots go deep Into the earth and wrap themselves around the rocks It can stand in tho face of the storm and defy Its fury So the peal tent backslider while he grows rapid ly like the Illy will become stable like tho cedar Ho toll because he lacked stability but his sad export once has taught him not to rely at all upon his own strength while he loans with all his weight upon the strength of God Peter by his unhappy fall at tho trial of Christ was cured of all boasting buWio never fell again He has now become truly a rock In hit resistance of evil BeautyIlls beauty

virgin beauty of the 11iy which he had before sin blurred and bruised him The scats of sin will remain even after tho wound has been healed The olive tree on tho other hand Is often gnarled and crooked Its beauty Is in its fruitfulness When the tree Is full of olives you forget the unsightliness of Its trunk and branches while you gaze at the beauty of Its fruit So the penitent backslider while ho mourns the loss of the lilys beauty may rejoice In the beauty of the olives fruitfulness Influence They that dwell under his shadow shall return Ho Is apt to say to himself in despair There Is no need of my trying again to live a Christian life for I have lost all my Influence So you have my brother but If you will truly turn to God with full con fession of sin receive his healing begin again to grow like the lily In touch with the dew In the grace of God be stable like the cedar and fruitful like the olive you will regain your lost Influence and those who dwell under the shadow of

In Kentucky are Popular thcught should be turned from national to Stato and local af fairsIf tho pooplo rule they must take Limo from private to attend to public businessTho Important duty of any generation Is to prepare tho next to enjoy and transmit what society has gained through ages of toll and suffer Ing rho wholo people must be educat ed to meet the demands of our complex I civilization Every child has an Inherit right to an equal chance in the race of life The State needs enlightened men for a republic with an Ignorant elec torate lo an Impossibility The Stato needs honest men bravo men relig ious men men of faith and selfdenial and tho schools must supply them Kentucky stands low in the scale of general education because of tho In difference of the pooplo to Its needs Kentucky Is not giving her children tin equal chance educationally speak ing with tho children of many poorer States and aa a result there Is a j possibility that her sons may become servants In the house of their fathers All tho best positions practically In the educational work in Kentucky are hold by men and women from other States This is not fair The average white child in Ken tucky has not an equal opportunity with tho average negro child for the majority of white children are being educated under rural conditions while the majority of colored children live In the cities This Is not fair Coun try people should see to It that their children havo on equal chance with others The only way tho rural school can bo made as good as the city school Is through county and district taxation The counties In Kentucky should build good school houses in every district and put good teachers witb In the reach of every child It will pay to do so The Common School does not pre pare fully for lifes duties therefore there should be a public High School in every county The college and universities of our State are crippled because there are so few high schools to prepare stu dents for them and because there aro so few highly educated teachers to Inspire students to climb tho heightsKentucky needs more university men for the real advance now being made along Industrial lines are for the most part tho work of these men highly trained In tho arts and sciencesA tax is not really a tax but an Investment for suppose so ciety Invests 100 In time cducatlonxof a boy will sho not get it back with

TOO COSTLY S PUT PRICE AT 128000000 Board Reports to Congress That Yearly Amount Necessary for Mainten ance Would Be 6000000 Plan Nlne Foot Project Washington Tho proposed 14 foot deep waterway project from St Louis to tho gulf received a blow when tho board Of engineers reported to con gress that such a waterway Is not desirable The waterway would cost 128000000 for construction and 6 000000 annually for maintenance the engineers say Tho report was based on a survey of the Mississippi river by a special board of engineers created by act of congress The conclusions reached by both the special board and the regular board of engineers are practically the same 1 In considering the commercial phases of the question the special board reported that although It had sought to obtain from commercial organizations facts as to the prospective commerce which requires a 14 foot channel it has received very little dofinlto Information It added that no actual largo future developments of commerce are yet In sight The position was taken that ocean and lake vessels such as would require a 14foot instead of a ninefoot channel would not bo an economic means of transporting products on the river Due to the necessity of build Ing an ocean vessel of sufficient strength to resist storms its cost In the United States was estimated at about 71 for each ton of freight car- rIed On the great lakes the cost writ estimated at 14150 The Mississippi river steamboats and barges capable of transporting 10000 tons of freight on an 8foot draft can be built for about 12 per ton of freight carried it was estimated Furthermore the board pointed out a modern lake freighter Is poorly constructed for navigating a tortuous river with a swift current When a new type of vessel has been designed the board suggested there will be an Immediate demand for a channel of greater depth than 14 feet The report of the regular board that It Is not decidable to construct a navigable channel 14 feet deep from St Louis or from Crlcago to the mouth of the Mississippi was based on tho conclusion of the special board that only commerce originating from sources that do not at present ship by river would Justify the great cost of a 14foot waterway- It is claimed that tho present demands of commercp between St Louis and the gulf will be adequately met by an eightfoot channel from St Louis to the mouth of tho Ohio and a channel of not less than nine feet In depth below the mouth of the Ohio The boards belief is that an eight foot channel from Chicago to St Louis corresponding with the
