also hope the reasons for State pride may be greatly increased in the coming years And we believe that at present our State pride would be more wholesome f we confined it to those subjects which afford a reasonable foundation We have recently heard in Centrabl Kentucky a number of speeches and papers on edu cational conditions in the State Some i Sese were pretty sombre an r rs had thaf Taiii tar ring of complacency that has become almost characteristic of the Ken iuckinn when he speaks of his own State and his own people The Hearld wants to be able to speak with complacency of Ken tuckys educational advance in the near future sand to that om we believe that it is salutary that we should know definitely and think much of Kentuckys present educational standing as compared with that of the rest of the Union In a bulletin is sued sometime since by time United States Bureau of Education tables were given showing the rank of each state in percentage- of illiteracy of the population 10 years of age and over This is considered a fair way of estimat jug popular illiteracy because it haq been found generally true that n person reaching 10 years of ago without learning to read und write does not thereafter1 learn to read and write Ranked by her foreign white population which is of course n very small fraction of her whole population Kentucky stands in this list of fifty States and Territories twentyeighth from the top Ranked by her colored popula tion she stands thirtyfirst Ranked by her wholo population including colored foreign white and native white she stands for tysecond Ranked bv her na tive white population alone she stands fortythird In other words when she is deprived of the help given by the colored population and by the foreign j white she stands eighth from

to cure almost any case of backache or kidney or blad der derangement in the following simple prescription if taken before the stage of Brights disease Fluid Extract Dandelion one half ounce Compound argon one ounce Compound Syrup Sarsppa rillu three ounces Shake well in n bottle and tuke in teaspoonful doses after each mealand again at bedtime A wellknown druggist here at home when asked regarding this prescription stated that the ingre dients are all harmless and can be obtained ut a small cost from any good prescription pharmacy or the mixture would be put up if asked to do so He further stated that while this prescription is often pre scribed in rheumatic afflictions with splendid results he could see no reason why it would not be a splendid remedy for kidney and urinary troubles nnd backache as it has a peculiar action upon the kidney structure cleansing these most im portant organs and helping them to sift and filter from the blood The foul acids and waste mutter
