For manners and for wise living it is a vice to remember You have done what you could some blunders and absurdities no doubt have crept in forget them as soon as you can Tomorrow Is a now day you shall begin It well and ecronelft and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old non sense This day for all that is good and fair It is too dear with all its hopes and Invltatons to waste a moment on tho rotten yesterday If you have not wilfully and wick edly dono wrong ita better to forge and If you have it is hotter to forgive yourself and try to redeem the post by tho good you can do today Every lay you are given a now trial a new chance and you should strive to make of your coming days a structure so grand that looking upon It no one will pause to remember the blunders ofyesterdayLive and seek to live everyday a little farther up tho slope Strive to be tolerant ot the mistakes and blunders of others remembering your own weakness Do not be harsh with tho wrong doer nor point out thru malice the stain upon the charac tel ot another but draw tho tempted away from the temptation and strive to lift the thots and actions of your neighbors to higher and nobler things In this way thd now year will bring you rIches ot spirit and bless the lives of all with whom you como In contact GOOD AND BAD RESOLUTIONS We do not believe in New Years resolutions So far as is visible they have never done any one any good but are all the time be ing used to make that famous pavemebt out of When a man puts off doing things lie knows be ought to do jilt some specified time like Jan 1and then starts in with a list as long as your arm to workon you can but that the big majority of his resolutions are going to get lost somewhere and that pretty soon And after three months when he counts up the results of his reform spasm and finds that there hove been no results to count he will tell you that there Is nothing in it and that he will never try again It is very sad and you will find that he is quite sorry for himself When a man knows that he ought to reform the time to do it is right then A good resolution put off even for a few days be comes worthless And besides the fellow who puts it off is all the time making the reform harder So we hope that any fellow who has been saving up his good resolutions to use Jan 1 will not put the blame of their failure on New Years but where it belongson himself And yet there is a certain kind of use for New Years in a character building way An occasion of that kind makes a sort of a mile post on lifes high way and it gives tbo busy man a cliance to see whore be is at He can check up with his condition of a year ago and see quite plainly which way ho has been going He can measure himself with his last years self and see whether he is growing up or down He can count over his virtues if he has any and his vices if he will admit he has any of them and see whether the account bal ancesas well as it did before or perhaps if he has worked very hard a little better It is not good for men to spend very much time in thinking about themselves If it does not make them conceited as is usually the case it makes them selfconscious and that is almost worse For a good working rule he can take the advice of the old man who said My son consider thou the postage stamp How it accom pushes its mission in life by sticking to one thing until it gets there and a man can get along best by sticking to his job and not paying too much attention to how he is looking But once in a while the time comes when ho ought to look him self over and see whether he might not do his job a little better if betook a little more pains with himself There are always a lot of things to reform tho they are not always as important as they look and the fellow who is doing his best will pay a good deal of attention to these things at times And this is the time If you have got a lot of goodresolutons stored up for the occasion we have no hope for you You are not really in earnest about them or you would have attended to it long ago But if you have been satisfied with yourself and have been getting along pretty well now is the time to stop There are a good many things that you ought to stop and most of your friends use the word but a good many times when they are talking about you Just stop and think over the different things that have happened to you in the past year and if you are really any account when you find out what has been wrong you will do somethingnbout it And then you will get to work again harder than ever Heres luck to you in both About five hundred gallons of whiskey was ndledthru tha Berea station last week in honor of the celebration of the birth of Christ Who can count the heartaches borne by a thousand women the suffering of children the wanton waste of money needed for warmth and food by those to whom a man owes more than all else all caused by the liquor from this one place alone And yet we call ourselves a Christian nation What a contrast to this is the movement which started in Chicago andspread like wildfirethe good fellow movement Thousands of men acting thru the newspapers found on Christmas eve from one to a hundred poor suffering little children and played Santa Claus for the waifs These men are not all church men by a good deal anti many of them gave up their Christmas drunk for the sake of the little ones Doesnt that look more Christian to you r PROGRESS PAST AND FUTURE We are printing this week a letter from W J Lampton whose statememt that mountaineers are more illiterate than other Kentuck inns we took occasions to criticise a few weeks ago The letter is clear frank and straigbtforword and we hope every one interestedwill take time to read it On last page We shall not attempt to make any extended reply to this letter for two reasons In the first place we do not believe that our readers are of a class that care for the personal scraps so often indulged in between editors and in the second place we believe that on all important Mr Lampton and ourselves agree We both know that the mountains have for various reasons fallen far behind the rate of progress of the world today andwe wish ardently to do all we can to enable them to take that place in the world to which the brains character and abilties of their people entitle them We even agree that thru the great efforts of recent years they have now begun to gather headway Tho question between us is whether now that some improvement has been made it is wise to congratulate ourselves and our friends on that achievement or to talk and act as if we were still in our old place The Citizen believes tbat a little encouragement is not harmful when it has been fairly earned and does not believe that it will in anyway keep us from realizing our faults or dull our efforts to attain the far greater things which still lie before us The needs are realized today more clearly than they have ever been before and the mountains are working harder than ever to catch up As every reader of The Citizen knows we are doing all that we can in the great work But we do not believe that the work will suffer if once in a while we lift our eyes from the task to report progress Still for tho sake of the work still to be done and for the sake of those who m6Ve or less fail to realize the needs we hope that everybodywill read Mr Lamptons letter tho we think it somewhat overdrawn CITIZENS PLANS Forecast for This Paper for the New Year and Review of Accom pllshmentsln the Old One The Citizen never

Wont Stay Hitched Much Longer Washington D C Dec 21 1909 At the time of writing last weeks letter it did npt seem likely that these would be any reason for one this week but several things have happened which seem worth report Ing This letter will be short but the final end of some of the things that have started will be a long time comingThe first thunder clap came in a sudden order for an investigation of the BalllngerPinchot controversy Mr Balllnger decided that he wanted an Investigation and announced that he would resign without one Altho this puts Pres Taft In a hard place there was nothing else ton it and Congress was asked for and voted to have a commission investigate It is true that somo of the men who seem likely to get on the commission are opponents of the things Pinchot stands for and friends of the things Balllnger Is accused of standing for but still a good deal of real informa tion is likely to come out But Mr Taft Is really In a hard place While there is ot course no such conspiracy to discredit him as has been talked of there are a good many people Tho supported Roosevelt who think that Taft Is not doing all I that he ought to in the way of re forms These people who are particularly strong thru tho middle West are watching carefully for anyi sign that the administration is falling from tho ctralght and narrow path They have not been pleased with the discharge from government service of so many men who did fine work under Roosevelt but have been willing to wait There Is no possible ex cuse however for the discharge of Pinchot whose only possible fault has been that ho has been too zeal ous in the peoples interests He has been by far tho ablest man who over MId this place and Mr Taft himself hen been very high In his praise of I himOn I tho other hand Pinchot and Balllnger cannot possibly both hold their places Plnclvots charges against Balllnger are clear and concise and so sharp that there ia no possibility of their being explained to the credit of both men So when the investigation is over Taft will have to I ask for the resignation of ono or the other of these two men If Pinched is I let out the reformers will take it ns pretty strong evidence that Taft Is I with the reactionaries and is go- Ing to work for tho Interests and not for the people If on the other hand Ballinger Is dropped think what a place Taft will be Into have to admit that one of the men he him self chose has helped the thieves and has been entirely unworthy of his trust That too will injure him with those who think ho is try Ing to do

saw the hand of Whispering Smith The light was unexpected Barnhardt was a surprise and even the falling snow which protected him from being seen 20 teat away angered him Ho asked curtly who was ill

surgeons protection a knock at the cot tago door gave them a second fright Barnhardt answered the summons He opened tho door and as the man out side paused to shake the snow off his hat the surgeon caught him by the shoulder and dragged Into the house Whispering Smith Picking the icicles from his hair Smith listened to all that Barnhardt said his eyes roving meantime over everything within the room and men tally over many things outside it He congratulated Barnhardt and when Marion camo into the room ho apolo- gIzed for the snow ho had brought in Dlcksle heard his voice and cried out rpm

I In the morning the sun rose with s mountain smile The storm had swept the air till the ranges shono blue and qoudlesssIrat daybreak picked up a trail on the Fence river road A consultation was held at the bridge and within half an lour Whispering Smith with un shaken patience was In tho saddle and following It With him were Kennedy and Bob Scott Sinclair had ridden Into the lines and Whispering Smith with his best two men meant to put It up to him to ride out They meant now to get him with a trail or without and were putting horseflesh against horse flesh and craft against craft At the forks of tho Fence they picked up Wickwire Kennedy taking him on the up road while Scott with Whisper ing Smith crossed to the Crawling Stone When Smith and Scott reached the Frenchman they parted t er in turn each of the trails by wu n It is possible to got out of tho river country toward the Park and Williams Cache By four oclock in the afternoon they had all covered the ground so wall that tho four were able to make their rendezvous on the big Fence divide south of Crawling Stone val ley They then found to their disappointment that widely separated as they had been both parties were fol lowing trails they believed to be good They shot a steer tagged It ate din ner and supper In one and separated under WhIspering Smiths counsel that both the trails bo followed Into tho next mornIngIn the belief that one of them would run out or that the two would run together At noon the next day Scott rode throygh the tills from the Fence and Kennedy with Wickwire came through Two Feather pass from the Frenchman with tho report that the gamo had left their valleys Without rest they pushed on At the foot of tho Mission mountains they picked up the tracks of a party of three horsemen Twice within ten miles afterward the men they wore following crossed tho river Each time their trail with some little dIm culty was found again At a little ranch in the Mission foothills Kennedy and Scott leaving Wickwire with Whispering Smith took fresh horses and pushed ahead as far as they could ride before dark but they brought back news The trail had split again with one man riding alone to the loft while two had taken tho hills to the right heading for Mission pass and the Cache With Gene Johnson and L Who Says I Cant See Herr I Bob at the mouth of the Cache there was little fear for that outlet The turn to the left was tho unexpected Over the little fire in tho ranch kltch en where they ate supper the four men were in conference 20 minutes It was decided that Scott and Kennedy should head for the Mission pass while Whispering Smith with Wick wIre to trail with him should undertake to cut off somewhere between Fenco river and the railroad tho man who had gone south the man believed to be Sinclair It was a late moon and when Scott and Kennedy saddled their horses Whispering Smith and WickwIre were asleep With tho cowboy Whispering Smith started at daybreak No one saw them again for two days During those two days and nights they were In the saddle almost continuously For every mllo the man ahead of them rode they were forced to ride two miles and often threo Late in the second night they crossed tho railroad and the first word from them came in long dispatches sent by Whispering Smith to Medicine Bend and Instructions to Kennedy and Scott In the north which were carried by hard riders straight to Deep creek On tho morning of the third day Dlcksle Dunning who had gono home from Medicine Bend and who had been telephoning Marlon and George Mc Cloud two days for news was trying to got MedicIne Bond again on the telephone when Puss came In to say that a man at the kitchen door wanted to see her Who Is It Puss 1 dno Miss Dlcksle deed I never seen him bfore Dlcksle walked around on the porch to the kitchen A dustcovered man sitting on a limp horse threw back the brim of his lint as bo touched It lifted himself stiffly out of the saddle and dropped to the ground He laughed at Dlcksles startled expression Dont you know m07 ho asked putting out his hand It was Whispering Smith He was a fearful sight Stained from head to foot with alkali saddle cramped and bent his face scratched and stained he stood with a smiling appeal In his bloodshot eyes Dlckslo gave a little uncertain cry clasped her hands and with a scream threw her arms impulsively around his neck Oh I did not know youl What has happened I am so glad to seo you Tell me what has happened Are you hurt He stammered like a schoolboy Nothing has happened I didnt real ize what a tramp I look or I shouldnt

has any on tho stove Dlckslo with coaxing and pulling got him Into the kitchen and Puss tum bled over herself to sot out coffee and rolls He showed himself ravenously hungry and ate with a simple direct ness that speedily accounted for evory thing In sight You have saved my life Now 1 am goinc and thank you heavenIme waiting down In the cottonwooda at tho fork Could Puss put up a lunch I could take to him t He hasnt had a scrap for 24 hours But DIck sle your tramp Is a hummer Ive tried to rIde him down and wear him out and lose him and by heaven he turns up every time and has been of more use to me than two men She put her hand on Whispering Smiths arm 1 told him If ho would stop drinking ho could be foreman here next season Puss was putting up the lunch Why need you hurry away

asps and in a moment were lost beyond the trees CHAPTER XL Crawling Stone Wash When Whliperlng Smith and his companions were fairly started on the last day of their ride It was toward a rift In the Mission range that the trail led them Sinclair with consummate cleverness had rejoined his compan ions but the attempt to get into the Cache and his reckless rldo Into Medi clue Bend had reduced their chances of escape to a single outlet and that they must find up Crawling Stone valley The necessity of It was spelled In every move the pursued men had made for 21 hours They were riding the pick of mountain hrrsoflosh and covering thtlr tracks by every device known to the high country Behind thorn made prudent by unusual danger rode the best men tho mountain division couhl muster for the final ef tort to bring them to account The fast riding of the early week had Given way to tho pace of caution No trail sign was overlooked no point of concealment directly approached no hiding place left uusoarched Tho tension of a long day of this work was drawing to a close when tho sun set and loft the big wash In the shadow of the mountains On the higher ground to the right Kennedy and Scott wore riding where they could command the gullies of the pro cipitous left bank of the river High on tho left bank itself worming his way like a snake from point to point of concealment through the scanty brush of tho mountain sido crawled Wlckwlro commanding tho pockets In the right bank Closer to the river on tho right anti following the troll Itself over shale and rock and be tween scattered bowlders Whispering Smith low on his horses neck rode slowlyIt almost too dark to catch tho slight discoloration where pebbles had been disturbed on a flat surface or the calk of a horseshoe had slipped on the uneven face of a ledge and he had halted under no uplift to walt for WIckwire on tho distant left to ad vance when halt a mile below him a horseman crossing tho river rode slowly post a gap In the rocks and disappeared below the next bend lie way followed In a moment by a sec ond rider and a third Whispering Smith knew ho had not been seen lie bad flushed the game and wheeling hit horso rodo straight up the river bank to high ground where he could circle around widely below them They had slipped between hIs line and Wlckwlres end were doubling back following tho dry bed of tho stream It was Impossible to recall Kennedy and Scott without giving an alarm but by a quick detour he could at least hold the quarry back for 20 minutes with hrs rifle and in that time Ken nedy and Scott could como up Less than halt an hour of daylight remained If tho outlaws could slip down the wash aud out Into the Crawl- Ing Stone valley they had every chance of getting away In the night and If the third man should be Barney Rob stock Whispering Smith knew that Sinclair thought only of escape Smith alone of their pursuers could now Intercept them but a socond hope remained On the left Wlckwlro was high enough to command every turn In tho bed of the river Ho might see them and could force them to cover with his rifle even at long range Cast- Ing up the chances Whispering Smith

fearful Instinct crowded now upon the long strain of tho week A savage fascination burned like a fever In his veins and ho meant that they should not get away Taking chances that would have shamed him In cooler moments ho forced his horse at the end of the long rldo to within 100 paces of tho river throw his lines slipped tike a lizard from the saddle 1 and darting with incredible swiftness from rock to rock gained tho waters 1 edge From up the long shadows of thliwash there came the wall of an I From it ho know that WIckwIre bad soon them and was warning him but be had anticipated the warning and stood below where the hunted moo must ride He strained his eyes over the waste of rock above For one half hour of daylight ho would have sold In that moment ten years of his life What could ho do if they should be ablo to accrete themselves until dark between him and Wlckwlro Gliding under cover of huge rocks up tho dry watercourse ho reached a spot where the floods had scooped a long hollow curve out of a soft ledgo in the bank 4 leaving a stretch of smooth sand on itho bod of the stream At the upper point great bowlders pushed out ol the river Ho could Dot inspect the curve from the spot ho had gained without reckless exposure but he must force tho little daylight loft to him Climbing completely over the lower point ho advanced cautiously and from behind a sheltering spur stepped out upon an overhanging table of rock and looked across the river bottom Threo men hud halted on tho sand within tho curvo Two lay on their rifles under the upper point 120 paces from Whispering Smith The third man Seagrue less than CO yards away bad got oft his horso and wJlaying down his rifle when the 1owl screeched again and he looked un easily back They had chosen foretheir halt a spot easily defended and needed only darkness to make them safe when Smith stopping out Into plain sight throw forward his hand They heard his sharp call to pitch up f and the men under the point jumped Scagrue had not yet taken his hand from his rifle Ho throw it to his shoulder As closely together as two fingers of tho right hand can bo struck twice In the palm of the left two rifle shots cracked across the wash Two bullets passed so closo In flight they might have struck Ono cut the dusty hair from Smiths temple and slit the brim of his hat above his car i the other struck Sonpruo under the loft eye plowed through the roof ol his mouth and coming out below his ear splintered the rock at his back The shock alone would have stag gored a bullock but Scagruo laughing camo forward pumping his gun Sin clair at 120 yards cut Instantly Into tho fight and tho ball from his rifle creased tho alkali that crusted Whis poring Smiths unshaven chock As ho fired he sprang to cover For Boagruo and Smith there WI- no cover for one or both It was death In the open and Seagruo with his rifle at his chock walked straight Into It Taking for a moment tho fire of thi three guns Whispering Smith stood a perfect target outlined against the sky They whipped the dust from his k- coat tore the sleeve from his wrist and ripped the blouse collar from his neck but he felt no bullet shock Ho r t saw before him only the buckle ol Sengruos belt 40 paces away and sent bullet after bullet at tho gleam ol brass between the sights Both moo were using guns and the deadly shocks of the

than how much ground he has covered arlthimeUcsibly be helpful Arithmetic has two values a dis ciplinary and utlltarlan The teacher should constantly keep these two facta in mind and teach each lesson in such- a way as to secure the highest value along both lines I Mental discipline cannot be secured except by the most careful process of reasoning stated in the most exact language from the very first The demands that a small number ot prob lems must be carefully solved rather j than a large number carelessly In tho more advanced classes in addition to careful oral analysis and statement the teacher must demand thorough well arranged and neatly done writ ten work both on the board and on paper I Almost any kind of a problem may be used In this way to train the mind but why should a

Governor Vardaman tho professional nigger hater and fire rotor who was de feated a year ago by John Sharp Hams Witl REAL CHRISTMAS STORM Somfl of us around hero thought we wore getting a pretty fair storm for Christ mas but we only got the leavings The real storm hit Boston Now York and the Atlantic Coast in general At Boston the sea was driven eo far In I land by tho fury of the wind that thousands of people fled from their I homes for safety It Is estimated that 5000000 damages were done in that city alone In New York ships were wrecked in the harbor and for one whole day the street and elevated roads were tied up and almost no trains got in from outside When It Is remembered that in New York over a million people every day travel an average of eight miles apiece on the street railways that some two hundred thousand go into the city daily from outside to reach their work and that the great city itself cannot live more than a few days e without supplies of food from the country It will be seen how serious this condition was AU along the coast vessels of all kinds were driven ashore with heavy loss of life On land the railroads stopped running the telegraph telephone and electric I measurements making the work as much as possible objective After this time the child will bet ready to rapidly expand Into the field of percentage and a few ot its applications proportion power and roots and more advanced mensuration In the applications ot percentage we find the largest amount of material to be discarded by the tost of utility Trade discount should be

to the simplest form of the SimpleInlabors through tho old time process of counting Interest He uses the in terest tables and a few problems thoroughly understood are enough for most people As ton Stock and Bonds the subject has no practical value unless It be taught merely to give an idea of mo dern methods of speculation averdoubtful use Roots and Powers should perhaps bo left tar the High School for un less well taught they are worse than useless from the view point both of training and of use- I hope soon to see the day when teachers examinations will not touch upon the subjects of Stock and Bonds at all only in the simplest manner I upon the other subjects mentioned above but will be such as to really test the power of the teachers to use with ease and rapidity the simple but fundamental principles which must enter into the affairs of every day life This may result in more and not fewer discarded rules but I urn sure It will largely do away with the charge that our schools do not give real power INo answer to Problem No 10 has been received at this office The correct answer and a new problem will be given next week light wires went down and for a little while all business and work stopped This would not be so serious here but there where people live from hand to mouth raising iiO food and buying each week out of their salaries what they need to eat It meant real privation for everyone and suffering for many Altogether It la thought that some hundred and fifty lives were lost as a result of the storm and that property damage will amount to over twenty million dollars WITH A WILL If youve work to do boys Do It with a will Those who reach the top boys First must climb the hill Standing at the foot boys Gazing at the sky How can you get up boys It you

table and formed an attractive oasis In a desert ot foolscap- I paused abruptly In the doorway and stared I mustnt be interrupted she ex claimed because Im busy So I see I rejoined What are you doingsorting your dressmakers bills For a traction of a minute I was permitted to gaze Into a pair of deeply wounded eyes Im writing she said coldly 0 I said somewhat impressed I subsided gently Into an armchair and eyed her admiringly Erwhat are you writing Betty looked at me thoughtfully and sucked an Inky forefinger before she replied Im writing a novel she vouchsafed at last A novel I cried You didnt men tion It yesterday Because she answered simply I hadnt thought of It yesterday Is It finished yet Finished I She regarded me scorn fully Have you ever heard ot a novel being written in a day No I admitted though many could have been easily I dont expect to get It finished she resumed before the end of next week- S Too Improiued by the magnitude if the work to offer any comment I lit a cigaretteIm youve called though she resumed because theres some thing I want to know What Is the least number of words you can have In a novel Not less than 70000 I Informed herBetty gave a shrill cry and gazed at me In dismay Truly I nodded For a few moments Betty Involved herself In a minor maelstrom and eventually emerged flushed apd dis beveled Thirty pages she announced Its foolscap though mind you How many words would that be About 1500 altogether I calcu lated glancing at her handwriting Oh she walled She resumed the sucking of her Inkstained forefinger Have I got to write another 40 times as much Her tone was tragic Why not make It a short story I suggestedBetty over this for a few moments Should I get as much shequeriedAs Money of course What else do you thlnkr That depends Some authors get more JOT a short story than others for a long novel Its a question of reputationBetty her brows at me for a few moments How do you get a reputation she Inquired at length By writing I affirmed stoutly She pondered over this for a whIK I see she evolved at last At least I think I do You have to write a story first to make your name and another to make money Is that IU Thats the theory of It anyhow I assentedUgh she cried with a shudder Instinctively putting her hand behind herbackHow many words do you want tor a short storya very short story i That depends how short the story Is Say two thousand I She pursued her lips reflectively And Ive writtenhow many did you sayfifteen hundred So I only want another five hundred dont n It wouldnt be dangerous to write that number would IU Dangerous I echoed Theres never any danger It the editor doesnt like It he only sends It back Theres nothing to b afraid of Dont be silly said Betty scorn full I meant danger of getting writ ers cramp And anyhow when Ive written the story I shall take It to some editor personally You dont suppose Im frightened of an editor do youLook here she cried suddenly what will you bet that the first one I take It to doesnt accent 1t1 I looked at her loughlng face and imagined myself an editor I shook my headA pairs of gloves she pleaded A lady editor I bargained She looked at me reproachfully Thats meanI wont bet at all with you now She paused and then added You might have won you knowIn any acse I said undisturbed Ive plenty of gloves Gloves I Why I neednt have bet you gloves What were you going to bet me 1 said Oh well She meditated awhile Well what do you think Is worth a dozen pairs of gloves I told her Done the said but only one mind dllturblnlthoughtstory she said aghast I may get writers cramp and then I shant bo abet to wear the gloves If you dont finish it I pointed out it cant be accepted and to I shall win I dont know that I mind laid Betty with a

comfort too Wo wore figuring it up the day and found that we gavo more than twice as much of all kinds of reading matter as any other paper that comes to out desk Of course wo dont see them all but wo a good many and we give about doubleI what the best of them do Ie may not be so good as what they print but some of our friends are flattering enough to say It Is a little better Any how we feel good about it But that does not mean that wo are satisfied either with the paper or subscription list In the first place wo want to make this paper not bet ter than some otter paper or even I better than it over has been but we want to mako It just as good as it can be We are working on that line ard we wish to say again that we aro always glad to have tho help of our friends on that Job Lots of times

away with the pleasure of the occas ion that they forgot those This young man so far lost his nerve as to step In the creek to dry his foot This action however was universally condemned and the party in general should not bo held accountable for his weakness After a couple ofl hours spent in this most delightful of sports tho watchers warned the party that It was time to return Regretfully leaving

customs and superstitions connected with tbo rotes and fes of the calendar tbo student Is confronted with two prob Tho strong probability of their having been primarily of religious significance and thus the potsherds as It were of cults long forgotten and the possibility of their having become garbled or altered In being handed down through the cen tunes Pausanlas 17 hundred years ago evidently realized this dimculty to tho full whoa ho wrote in his Description of Greece As to these fables of tho Greeks I considered them childish when I began this work but when I got as far as this book I formed this view That thoso who were reckoned wise among the Greeks spoko of old in ridS dies and not directly so I Imagine tho fables about Chronos to bo Greek wis dom of tho traditions therefore about tho gods I shall stato such as 1 meet withPlutarch also warned us against approaching these studies In tho spirit of skepticism and docsnot leave us in the dark as to his attitude of steering a middle path between absolute unbelief and blind trust In regard to legendary lore ho eays I stand In tho position of one who neither alto Bother believes nor altogether disbelieves Thoro are indeed some slender and obscuro parthIAN of truth scattered about In tho mythology of the N w R tOO CPOP ly WAJsnJL1ftl- TIl1 OprJUlRD Egyptians but they require a clover man to hunt them out a man capable of getting great results from small I data bAtthe period when those two authors wrote all learn science were confined to a very narrow circle of Initiates The common folks were kept In strict Igno rance of tho truo moaning of their festivals tho mys teries were n hidden book as to their true significance and only tho outward and visible sign of the celebrations came within their ken How far tho secrets were kept by these Initiates a combination compared with which our steel and sugar trusts sink into mere Insignificance Is too well known to every student Thus in many cases it Is Impossible to trace definitely the actual basis of these ancient myths nnd customs and any attempts perforce must necessarily remain much In the nature of a patchwork quilt A scrap gathered here and there from tho ancient writings helps to work up tho quilt but the ultimate state has a somewhat crazy appearance It Is all the more exonerating because many of these early writers such as Herodotus Plutarch and others have stopped short In their screeds Just when a few ex tra words would have eased the knots that now prevent us from unraveling tho skein They wore Initiates and thus sworn lo silence Their oaths however did not pro rent them whetting our curiosity and leaving us in a po sition whore as Plutarch cynically remarks It would In deed bo u clover task to got great results from small data Athenacus another of the old Greek gossipers In epeaklog of the policy of tho Romans In adopting the cus toms of peoples whom thny had conquered says For It is tho conduct of prudent men to abide by thoso ancient institutions under which they and their ancestors havo lived and made war upon and subdued the rest of tho world und yet at tho same time If there wore any use Cut or honorable Institutions among tho peoples whom they have subdued those they take for their Imitation at tho same time as they lake their prisoners And this was the conduct of tho Romans in olden time for they main taming their national customs at tho same time Introduced from tho nations whom they had subdued every relic of dcslrabl practices which they found This In a measure was the policy of tho early fathers In adapt 1lagheathen feasts and sacrifices to tho festivals of the With them however it was rather a case of adaptation than of adoption believing that the now order of things would come easier to the converts to tho Christian religion If the changes were not made too sweeping nor too harsh Thus It is that so many of tho customs connected with our festivals have come down to us from time long prior to tho birth of the Saviour Unlike tho many customs connected with tho celebra tion of Christmas thoso of the beginning of the New Year seems to bear more of the stamp of paganism At tho same time such customs show a rather close resem blanco duo in a large measure to the fact that both can be traced to tho celebrations round tho ancient festival of tho Saturnalia nnd winter solstice when tho old year went out and the new came In a period of general rejoicing and It must bo admitted of a great degree of row dyism noise and license which all the fulminations of church councils In tho Middle Ages und city ordinances and orders of chiefs of police In these later days have been unable to suppress The youngster of today with his born is just as prominent In creating a racket as was tile prototype of n couple of thousand years ago Of late years this period of npleo has been largely restricted to tho eves of Christmas and New Year but formerly the period closely following Christmas day was one of continuous jollification Mummors perambulated tho trees of the towns and villages and tho Lord of Misrule the Abbot of Unreason or tho Abbas Stullorum held away Tho Feto of Fools was celebrated on tho three days following Christmas culminating on Holy innocents day In a general jamboree in which not even the churches were spared Young people dressed thewselvi up as the great dignitaries of tbo church and oven to very offices seem to have been parodied and dances hold in tho churches Tho second canon of tho Council ol Cog mac held in 12CO put under pain of excommunication nil such as masqueraded as bishops etc At tho councils held at Nantes in 1431 and at Bourges in 143S fulmlna tlons were hurled against the Fete of Fools whllo ee early as 1212 tho celebration was abolished by tho council hold at Paris Yet tho custom of masquerading on the days following Christmas is not yet extinct in many dls trios of Francs and elsewhere but the celebration has been shorn of much of Its plcturesquencss and at the value time of Ha extreme license I Tho Lord of Misrule had jur Is d I c t Ion In both tho great English univer sities from Christmas to Twelfth

have been handed down to Us it would rather seem that ho himself was sadly in need of being regulated and disciplined Each city had its similar functionary and his jurisdiction was not limited to this ho had tho regu lation of all tho festivals of the year The reign of the Lord of Misrule may be said to have ended when Crom well and his cropcared Puritans took charge of the government and while there was some attempt to revive his lordship after the restoration of Charles II the bones had become too dried and the flesh shriveled uphe was a moro mummy of his former self In Scotland the Abbot of Unronsor was suppressed much enrller1655by tho legislature jut whether such strong action was duo to tho spread of Puritanism or to tho unbridled scenes of disorder is a question Under Henry VIII 1540 tho procession of children on Childermas or Innocents day was forbidden In England by proclamation There are however still n few traces of the Lord of Misrule The English Christmas pantomimes open on December 26Doxlng dayand have now become ns much of an established institution as over tho Lord of Misrule was In his palmiest days Of recent years the institution has found favor on this side of tho Atlantic The masquerading on tho streets of tho Lord of Misrule and his followers has been merely transferred to tho boards of the theater In many parts of Franco masquerading by children Is still in vogue during tho threo days following Christmas and In most countries something analogous Is to bo found Sometimes tho feature is kept up until Twelfth day while In some sections the fun docs not commence until Now Years day These first three days have been specially consecrated to the memory of saints and martyrsSt Stephen on the 26th St John the Evangelist on tho 27th and holy lane cents or Chlldermas on the 28th Tho fact that tho day next after Christmas was dedi Gated to St Stephen tho protomartyr shows with what veneration bo was held by tho early church On this day In many parts of Ireland and In the Isle of Man It Is still the Custom of the boys to hunt the wren Tho origin of this curious but cruel custom is hidden in tho mist of ages and thus offers another difficulty of getting great results from small data One legend current In Ireland nnd told by Lady Wilde Is to the effect that on one oc Gaston when tho Irish troops wero approaching to at tack n pardon of Cromwells army the wrens camo and perched on tho Irish drums and by their tapping and nolso aroused tho English soldiers who fell on tho Irish soldiers and killed them all This tale is a close analogue to that in which the cackling of geese Is said to have saved Rome from capturo which even the staid Roman historian Llvy seems to treat with a show of belief The custom however dates back much further than Crom well and his Ironsides In County Lcltrlm the dead birds are carried from house to houso tied to a pole or bunch of furze covered with ribbons etc the boys chanting The wren the wren the king of nil birds On St Stephens Day ho was caught In the furze Although he Is little his family Is great So rise up mistress and glvo us a treat Tho mistress has to turn In a few pence to the boys the jackpot thus created being opened by the boys at the end of tho day In the Isle of Man tho boys give a feather of the wren to each good wife who contributes tho necessary coin nnd It can well bo Imagined that by tho end of the day tho appearance of tho bird Is somewhat dilapidated It is then burled on tho sea shore with certain mock ceremonies In former years the Interment was mado in the churchyard U was and is still the custom in many parts of England to bleed the horses on St Stephens day Tho efficacy of this treatment on this particular day aa a preventive of all equine ailments was thought to be undoubted but oven old Tussor seems to have hnd his doubts on the EDWARDFOSTER i subject when ho says In his Five Points of Husbandry- Yer Christina bo passed let horses be let blood For name a PUl1080 It dooth them much good The day of St Steeren old fathers did use If that do mlsllko thee some other day chuso Tho commonsense reason for bleeding tho horses on this day was that both man nnd beast had the three day following Christmas day as a holiday In parts of ilohemlat and elsewhere among the Slavic pe1 plea of Europe tho master of house gets no work out of his servants from Christmas to Innocents day and In many sections the boll day and general suspension of work is kept up until Twelfth day Epi phany Among the Valaks there U a very significant custom On the morning of St Stephens day tho mistress of the house presents her husband with a pair of trousers In token of her obedience during the ensuing year Evidently the suffragette campaign has not reached Into these remote Slavic regions Holy Innocents day or Chllder mas December 28 commemorates tho massacre of the children In Bethlehem under Herod This In Itself is sufficient to explain Its early recognition by the church The superstition that the day Is an unlucky oneIl dies nefostus Is not only widely spread all over Europe but Is deeply rooted and can bo traced back many hundreds of years The superstition was strong all through tho middle ages In England In tho fifteenth century It was thought so Inauspicious that tho day set for the coronation of Ed ward IV Sunday happening to bo Chlldemos tho ceremony was postponed until the following day In tho County of Suffolk at this day the superstition is carried even further and on whatever day of tho week Chllde mas may happen to fall that day is held to bo unlucky throughout tho year The commencement of any new task Is thought to bo certain to be followed by failure Addison gives an Instance of this belief In the Spectator of March 1 1710ll Thursday says she No child If It please God You shall not begin upon Childermas day Tell your writing master that Friday will be soon enough Tho custom of whipping the children aa a reminder of the event commemorated by Chlldermas was common In Franco and somo parts of Normandy today there is still a remnant existing among the country folks but the religious significance has been partly lost This method of assisting the memory of the luckless urchin by scor- Ing his epidermis was formerly In vogue on other occa alone than Holy Innocents day In England it was formerly a common practice during the riding of tho boun daries of parishes and manors on Ascension day to whip the youngsters at every Important or disputed point This Christening in the days of his youth was remem bered ever afterward and the particular stone cairn or streamlet marking the metes and bounds between adjoin ing parishes was thus Indelibly mapped on his gray mat tera proceeding quite as efficacious as a survey Although the festivities connected moro closely with tho celebration of Christmas day have completely overshadowed thoso of the New Year still there are not a few corners in Christendom wherein tho latter seasbn is held In much greater repute In Scotland In particu lar It is tho great holiday of tho year and on tho eve and the day of New Year the canny Scot lets himself out with a vim It would seem as If his spirits pent up for a whole twelvemonth find vent at this paticular season In France Roman law and custom have impressed themselves perhaps more strongly than elsewhere in Eu rope not oven excepting Italy itself and the close po litical friendship which existed between Scotland and Franco previous to the ascension of James VI to the throne still finds expression in the country to the north of the Tweed In a much stronger fashion than Is generally believed Many of the lowland terms of today are merely French In a Scottish guise It Is perhaps moro to this close political entento than to tha spread of tho Puritan doctrines doctrines which heldi everything In abomination that smacked In the slightest degree of church festivals that so many of tho customs and super stitions now current among the canny Scots so closely resemblo thojo of France Christmas at one time was almost as much of a festival in Scotland as to tho south of tho border and it seems that in the cities at least it is again showing recrudescence Dut among the rank nnd file of the people with tho Man In the Street it is the New Year that holds his heart and at tho same time disturbs his digestion and addles his brain Anyone who has been In tho Canny Toun o Edlnbro or Glas gow on i New Years eve realizes the spirit of goodwill that reigns even If his cars bo split by the pandemonium of noise and his eyes suffer by the reek of the torches and It Is rarely that tho Scot In all his jollification at this period construes liberty as license Tho custom of welcoming In the New fear has however on occasions IFR1JCbeen marked by unpleasant features On tho eve of New Year 112 the hoodlums of Edinburgh took advantage of the festival to rob unsuspecting citizens Two ot the citizens died front the effects of the maltreatment at the hands of these rowdies of whom three were executed as an example This unfortunate Incident threatened to put an end to the celebrations With the Scots the eve of New Year Is known particu larly as Hogmanay Throughout tho northeastern counties of England It is known as Hagmena but In many districts of tho latter It is the entire week prece ding tho New Year rather than the last day of the year There have been many attempts by philologists to set at the derivation of the term and it has even been suggested that it is a corruption of two Greek words signifying the holy moon or month Opinion however leans toward Its French orlglnAu gul menez bring In the mistletoe and Au gut lan neuf to tho mistletoe the Now Year both in allusion to tho ceremonial gathering of tho plant by tho Druids In almost every district In Franco we find the term in a more or less corrupted or dialectal form The Scottish custom of the children go Ing from house to house singing a short verso and beg ging the quid wife for a small present la Identically ti s same as that known all over France Get up guld wife and shake yere feathers bpggnr8ForSo rise and ales oor Hogmanay chants the little Scotch kiddie and the analogue of the doggerel can be found in every village of France As tho Scottish verselet shows tho hogmanay applies to the presents to the children and has not tho custom of glv ing presents at this season endured for centuries Ovid In his Fasti alludes to tho custom among the Romans of his day Then the presents do not seem to have been 1Thothe small coin wero the gifts and It does not need any great stretch of Imagination to guess their symbollq meaning Tho cakes fruit and luckpenny are still given the childrenthey are their hogmanay Tho superstition that the first person entering the house on New Years morning or tho first one met dm ing tho day presages good or bad luck during the ensu ing year is almost universal The first to cross thw threshold or first foot has thus a peculiar significant and many are the precautions taken that he be of the lucky variety We mention ho for except In a very few Isolated Instances tho superstition that should a woman bo the firstfoot illluck wilt follow Is almost universal Moreover ho must be a dark mana redheaded man is anathema A splayfooted a pigeontoed squlnteyed or an Individual whose eyebrows closely approximate in fact any bodily or mental deformation carries bad luck with it Yet even hero we find a few exception which rather tend to disturb our belief In the Infallibility of the rule In the Dradwell District of Northumberland n light haired and splayfooted individual Is preferred In parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire a blonde first foot Is reckoned quite lucky while in the Maritime Alpine dis tricts a humpbacked visitor on New Years day Is held to bring in great luck witn him In Scotland tho preju dice against a redhaired first foot Is very strong and in the Isle of Man and all through Ireland it is qulto as pronounced Tho superstition of Ill luck being attached to red hair is very ancient Among the ancient Egyptians and Jew lh people It was known Typbon la said to have had this particular color to his thatch and redhaired men were abused at certain festivals as Plutarch tells us In his Moralia Cain nnd Judas Iscarlot are both said to have had tho crimson topknot while a wolllinown leg end current among the Jews says that this peculiar tint was the effect of foiling down and worshiping tbo golden calf In Noreo ant Gaelic legend we find that

Citizen My dear Mn Editor- I have Just seen a copy ot your December 2nd lasuo which by the way as you gave mo cholceNof posl floe on your that pogo you might have been thoughtful enough to have Bent to me but you were not and I am glad of an opportunity to reply as far aa possible to your rather Indefinite charges therein To begin with you refer to mo as ono W J Lampion Of course not being built on the Sla JreaLampion but la It qulto the courteous way to address a fellow crattama- who Is working In the same rails with yourself Is It the manner that you would teach the mountain people to adopt In their Intercourse with each other Were you moved by a spirit of kindness to put It that way In print However this Is a purely personal matter and you do not have to anew er tho questions Let me get to the main IssuefI shall take for granted your statement that the mountains are not more Illiterate thn the other portion- of the state but Is that such an ex ruse for the general Illiteracy ot the state that It should bo spread before the public Is ono wrongdoer excusable becuco there are other wrong doers Possibly under the law of tho IIliteraC71ofnot the duty of the mountains to condemn that Influence rather than otter It as an excuse My dear fellow worker the with you mountain people troubleI you are too prone to offset your shortcomings by the IIlongross from the Tenth District from I which any ono Ignorant of the facts would be led to conclude that the mountain people were quite up to the general average of progress en lightenment and education of the entire country and In many respects superior to the people of the tows I In which I live New York Isnt eo good as It might be perhaps but with seven hundred thousand children In I Its public schools It makes a bet ter showing against illiteracy than the entlro state of Kentucky done I do not know exactly your stand atria of education among the teachers of the mountains but I have read a few letters of their writing and those letters are certainty not written by persons of education as I understand It But on this subject I hero ha little to say in what I have written for print as you will admit I kno the difficulties under which they labor and I now as I have Iproperlcational advantages they would have a fair working education Better as I have said than some ot the best men in tho country today had in their school years I leave It to you if I your people have done their duty in I this matter either to themselves or their children Do they glvndam for books If there la anything else In sight How much more money IsI spent for whiskey In tho mountains of Kentucky than for books How much more time Is spent In loafing than in reading How many private libraries will you find In tho homes of the mountaineers How many newspapers do they subscribe to and pay for and read And this ohortcomlng also I have becauseffoundaIn books I have argued that It the people had properly filled stomachs they would have better

contending with them that they are mistaken and that the need Is not what they imagine It is You roust learn that those who would bo benefited are so sot In tholr ways that they will bollovo what you tell them and will cease all efforts at progress You must learn that everlasting acti vlty is the price of progress and that you can not sot the price if you convince your pronto that they do not need

you can with tho children and a generation hones the mountaineers should have a record any people might bo proud of Believe me that I am as much Interested In this work as you are or any other person and I am far en ough away to haw a perspective which you can not have I am far enough to say perhaps what you would not core or darn to say right to their faces but what I say is the truth and the
