HAVE APPELLATE JUDGES A COMMISSIONER IOF COURT DELIVER LEG i TURE8 I L c UsEFORTHE OLD STATE HOUSE i1 V A bill which will not only be of Tast importance to the State but IU which will be of especial Interest to the people of Frankfort and Franklin county Is now in course of preparation Sand will shortly be introduced T In the Legislature The plan of the promoters is to establish a State Nor ffi mat School at Frankfort and to haye adjunct to the instlas the principal itutlon a State law school which if t the ideas of those interested in the K measure are carried out in full will 1be one of the best law schools in the country In addition to the instruc tion given by the regular instructors in the law department it is the plan to have each of the Judges of the Court of Appeals to deliver two lec tures each month which would mean a lecture by one of the Judges at least everY other day including two lee V turcs by the Commissioner of the v Court This idea first originated a few y yeanfr ago at one of the annual meet- ingsV ot toe Kentucky Educational As sociaton but at that time It had not assumed definite proportions and nor V one seemed to know Just how it could wasvidea was suggested to some of the prominent Judges and lawyers of the- state and several members of the Legislature became interested in it It was explained to them that the stu v f dents would not only get the advan Ci tage of the lectures by the Judges f tthe Court of Appeals and the further t advantago of attending the sessions yof that court but it was also cited tee that the student would at some pa- W yrlod of their course be enabled to fol the course of the laws of the iState from their inception to their enforcement after they have been put ton the statute books It is urged that j there is no place in the State so i suited for such an hiBtftutton as the aPIlJtQtho State It is also V claimed by the promoters of the meas ure that Frankfort would be an ideal sltplacefor 4 State Normal School Not yU only rin point of location would it be advantageOus but the fact that it is the Capital would make it a popular 1school j It is understood that the measure will provide for the use of the Old t State House buildings for the new in stltution thus solving the problem as- t9 what use the historic Old buildtnj- Shall be put to ini the fpture It is known that several active mem 1 hers of the Legislature are Jn favor t tot such a bill and as it is to be con mructed along nonpartisan lines it Us anticipated that it will have the support of both Republicans and Democrats It has been suggested that iiitwo members of the Court or Appeals be asked to draw up the measure and it is likely that this will be done Jft v fIR HENDRICK t r ifAppoInted Private Secretary to U S Senator Piles

people are aware that potatoes when first introduced Into Europe were regarded as poisonous This prejudice was soon overcome and the fact generally recognized that under ordinary circumstances potatoes are unquestionably wholesome food Oc- casIonallY one hears of a person who Is made by eating potatoes Just as some are made by milk by straw berles or other food Such cases are rare and due to Individual Idiosyn cracy Reference can not be made here to diabetes or other conditions of ill health In which potatoes and aim ilar starchy foods are not permitted since this Is a subject which pertains to the practice of medicine rather than to a discussion of dietetics Ccsoa of actual poison from potatoes are not unknown and perhaps without exception have been found to bo due to an abnormal solanln con tent such as Is found In sprouted tubers In very old potatoes and in potatoes which have turned green on exposure to the light SolanIn Is a characteristic constituent of potatoes and other plants of the same family it is acrid in taste and is poisonous Only a trace however about 001 per cent on an average Is found In the tubers of the variety which are grown for the table and this quantity is far too small to cause any unpleasant symptoms It Is claimed that the characteristic taste of potatoes Is due to this mere trace of solanin At any rate the very starchy potatoes Contain about half as much solanin aa the bet ter table varieties Potatoes which have grown on the surface of the ground or which have been exposel to the light frequently turn green and such tubers contain abnormal amounts of solanin as do old and shriveled potatoes which have sprouted It is beat not to use such old po tatoes but if they are eaten the flesh around the sprouts should be cut away as this portion Is particularly liable to contain solanin Small or unripe tubers contain a higher percentage of solanin than fullgrown tubersAnalysis has shown that wild pots toes contain practically the same kind and proportion of nutrients as the cultivated varieties Tho solanln con tent however Is very considerably larger 03 per cent having been found These wild potatoes when cooked are slimy and almost translu cent and entirely Inedible The residence of Mr M G Feath erstone near the Forks of Elkhorn was completely destroyed by fire Thursday afternoon entailing a loss of about 3500 upon

Ibs of However dry a feeding j stuff appears to be It always con tAlng a considerable and variable qUantity of water which cannot ne men or feltJHfc which can be driven f out by heat The amount of water thus present In feeding stuffs Is con- stantlyr changing with the temperature and moisturecontent of the air About them and aClY no very close comparison of ent feeds is possible unless the

faint rod ness in a current of air Besides sand is Usually an accidental impurity the r sash consists chiefly of lime magnesia potash and soda combined with chic ring and carbonic sulphuric or phos phone acid It is from some of these that the bones of the animal are constructs and repaired and mineral matters are fis necessary to continued health tani Ute BS any of the socalled nutrient which the analysis takes separate ac fount of The rations commonly fed however k have a sufficient amount of these mineral matters to meet the wants Of the animal although the addition of salt and of phosphate sometimes has a noticeably favorable effect or the condition of the animal Protein is a general expression for the nitrogenous matters of a feed ant In this report tho term simply means the nitrogen percentage multiplied b3 6 It is B general and only approxi- matev expression for the amount of t those fiesh forming ingredients of feed t which contain nitrogen as an essen tlal constituent which are the most costly and are absolutely essential for the building and repair of the tie frues of the body The protein bodies are those which should be most con eiflered in buying feeds for beside Dyeing the most expensive they are left t the most expensicve they are loss theirtof other nutrients in the manure Siitrogea free extract sometimes called carohydrateB includes starch Cum sugar

that for each special case of animal nutrition a special ratio of digestible proteins to digestible ether extract fiber and ni trogenfree extract Is the boot and most economical and within certain limits is necessary THE USES OF ANALYSIS OF FEED ING STUFFS Theee uses are several First by an analysis compared with the aver age of others any buyer of ia feed can see whether it Is of thq usual quality Thus on page 103 the analy sis of cotton seed meal No 19795 compared with the average of eleven analysis given on the same page shows that it has four per cent less of protein and two tend threefourths per cent less of fat than the average and is to that extent Inferior Secondly by an analysis compared v With the manufacturers guaranty the buyer can see whether incomposition vS the feed meets what is claimed of It f fa Thus on page 199 the analysts of Hu bingers Gluton Feed shows that it contains about 2 12 per cent less of- protein than the manfacturer guaran tw14 teesIThirdly an

skillful compounding of rations for farm animals How this is done can not be briefly explained within the limits of this A knowledge of eshsential which should be gathered by studying books which treat of the principles of cattlefeeding and of the art of compounding rations o OPTIMIST OR PESSIMIST Does it pay Is it worth while Is life worth living These are all dif ferent forms of the same Interrogation which has been puzzling and vexing mankind ever since the dawn of self consciousness Of course there are many who plod along without ever raising the inquiry leading dull tread mill lives and simply taking every thing for granted as it comes never speculating or reasoning about anything here or elsewhere These persons together with such as are igno rant or Indifferent in regard to all such matters make up one class Then there are two other classes whose views are determined rather by riatu ral temperament than by any pro cess of reasoning who are generally known as optimists and pessimists who reach the most widely divergent conclusions They then proceed to fortify their position by argument To the optimist life is full of zest He finds keen interest and enjoyment in all Its phases he loves Nature and people ho delights in music art and literature and finds the everyday round joyous and exhilarating He works and plays with enthusiasm and ho Is tforenefly confident that death does not end all The pessimist on the other hand finds life excea Ititi sively dull and without any welld fined purpose or significance To him everything Is trivial and worthless men an women almost without exception a parcel of cheats and idiots and all of the bustle and movement of life mere sound and fury signify Ing nothing His attitude toward life is either one of moroseness and sul lenness or he professes himself im bttohas a cynical turn he merely tolerates it condescending now and then to find something in it to laugh at To the extreme pessimist it is wholly evil something to seek refuge from in end less oblivion- Aside from individual differences ol views of life based chiefly on tern perament there seems to be a gee graphical line dividing optimists and pessimists To dwellers in the West as a whole there has been a general consensus that life is good that happiness is the lot of most and that tho wretchednes which exists Is a passing disease To the old heathen world life was a joyous existence from which It was a calamity to be taken and it was only under theological aus pices that it came to be considered- a vale ofl tears or a city of wrath underlying the religions Buddhistic to be fled from On the other hand and Brahminlcal which dominate the vast population of the East is the sentiment that life is per se is an evil The Westerner shrinks from the Idea of destruction and rather than harbor It has been willing to contemplate un dying existence In an eternal and terrifying hell The dweller of the East on the contrary given to contempla tion and pbychical theorizing hopes by many successive incarnations spent In constant self bnegaUoD to at last reap the reward of being able to plunge himself into nothingness It is only with civilization that pessimism has developed It grows large ly out of the apparent Impossibility of reconciling all the long continued suffering misery oppression and crime of earth with any theory of divine power and goodness That a man Is a pessimist does not necessarily mean that he is a worse man than his neighbors Such a view be the result of a keener realizationot the Buffering and evil in the world than comes to most and far more polgant than any one felt In earlier days when pessimism was comparative unknown Whatever the truth may toe and whatever the explanation if any shall ever be made known of the awfi sum of human and brute misery and bloodshed that hs darkened all the ages it is wise to cling to the belle that there are some things which cannot fail What they are has been beautifully and clearly stated by Dr Gladden of Columbus In the bitter waves of woe Beaten and tossed about By the sullen winds that blow From the desolate shores of Doubt Where the nnchorsthat faith has cast Are dragging in the gale I am quietly holding fast To the things that cannot fail I know that right is right That it is not good to lie That love is better than spite And a neighbor than a spy I know that passion needs Tho leash of a sober mind I know that generous deeds Some sure reward will find That the rulers must obey That the givers shall increase That Duty lights the way For the beautiful feet of Peace In the darkest night of the year When the stars have all gone out That courage Is better than fear That faith is truer than doubt And fierce though friends may fight And long though the angels hide I know that truth and right Have the universe on their side And that somewhere beyond the stars Is a love that is better than fate When the night unlocks its bars I shall see Him iand I will wait + sWASTE IN LUMBERING 6QUTHER APPALACHIAN FORESTS The forests of the Southern Appa lachian Mountains have been cut so eagerly for the valuable hardwoods they contain that very little virgin timber Is left and about 85 per cent of the area Is second growth The drain on these forests by many industries is Immense The lumber men are going over the land for the third time First they took only the prime oak and poplar saw timber Next they took the oaks that Were suited for barrel staves Now they are after whatever merchantable trees are left such as birch chestnut and gumMoreover these forests have been and still are logged very wastefully Nearly threequarters of the Umber cut for ties Is wasted Double or even treble the number of ties now cut could readily be secured from the same area without damage to the forest By simply taking all the suitable tree 125 ties could be cut from an acre which now yields only 60 and if all of the wood in the trees were fully utilized 170 additional ties per acre could be secured With mine timbers the story is the same Fully 40 per cent of the timber handled in procuring them Is en tirely wasted Finally fires are Injuring the

nny Jns for the general L1 revision of the school laws to brii them up to the best standards and actual needs of the children of Ken tucky t2 There has been foijjpng time a t growing feeling very nest and Btrong that our school system was Very weak In Ito general plan and In t operation and the revelation of the census as to the percentage of miter afcy in Kentucky has brought this tee ling to the point of organized expre Eton in general movements through the Commonwealth for better school better schoolhouses better teacher teaching longer terms better r courses of education better paid teachers firstclass normal schools to train teachers and for a complete change in the whole schoolrsYstow fa to bring it up to the necessities it the people and to the best modei school standards tand this general movement shows the active persona interest of all of our people in tires matters and has a strong and just claim to the attention of the members of the General Assembly and to the officers of the State The newspaper throughout the State are giving vtalu hie space almost dally to school needs the pulpit is working earnest and steadfastly for better education the boards of trade

is great the demand of the peopl r Insistent and I hope the time was sever so favorable for a prompt response of the representatives of the people to their wishes for good schoc laws The State Department of Educatlo lbe free from partisan bias and Inflfluence and I feel tire greates hope and faith that all the represen tatives of the people and officers will Join In the determination that reed nor partisan interest nor pet eonal ambitions shall have any part la the measures we take for keeping up the schools and making them bet forrI agree cordially with the feeling the Superintendent of Public Instruc lion and with the teachers and men nnd women throughout the State who are showing active interest in schools maters that the office of Superinten adent of Public Instruction should be so organized that It will not be merely a clerical office but shall be more and fntoro a center of educational thought and activity and a place of meeting for all interested in the general plans of the schools where proposed legis lation and general features of the management of the schools may be Openly and freely discussed educatIon- al sentimenb crystalized and schqol laws and rules worked out on sys tematic and wisely arranged plans It seems wise that the Superinten dent of Public Instruction instead of lImply watching the clerical distribu tion of the appropriations at Frankfort and the printing cf school forms should really have an active part In overlooking guiding and helping all of the schools of the State and to this A tend should visit them personally in order to find what they need or what they lack or what changes ought to be made and to criticise on the one brand and on the other encourage and help them so that he could know their needs In person and then to be able to think out measures of relief r There Is the greatest need for him too in person to the remotest districts to show the need and the blessing ol Y good schools and stir up the Interest J of the people tat home on their schools xrad urge and stimulate them to help themselves and their children not only In their Influence arid work but to Induce them to help out the State Yund with local contributions or taxes f and it seems to me that the law1 Should make it mandatory upon him 10 irtjlvlfllt every county in the State to inspect the schools and conduct edu Fr l n Mrf b l an appropriation to pay the reasonabl and necessary expenses of such travel not less than 2000 a year In thfd way only it seems to me can thisI office serve the highest Interests t l the people and meet one of the greatest needs land overcome one of the greatest burdens upon our people the shame and misery of Illiteracy Revision A Vital Necessity A comprehensive revision of our ell tire school plan In order to build a model uptodate school systet arranged on a carefully organized an regular plan from the kindergard and the county school to the collw seems now of vital necessity the course of the years past school system has grown from- lawenacted before modern sch were developed to their present d tlon and added to from year t ear have become a mere patchworks a confused complicated sometimes Inconsistent and often outgrown enactments There Is very little system ar unity and they will have to be made over in a complete new code or act an- n logical wise and compretoensh plan The work of revising and cod tying these laws will tape long and careful study and patience with the help and counsel of men and worm trained In the profession of educattc and of the most publicspirited and painstaking of our representatives and people and I therefore hope that there will be provided at the earliest chance an Educational Commission to thoroughly investigate our school syt tern make a comparative study of the best school systems qat other State and submit to the next General Assembly a report embodying such sus gestions recommendations and amendments as the commission shall find necessary useful and good No Room for Politics While there are many arguments fal a paid commission the creation of new positions and salaries always tend to bring politics into the measure oand my impression is that it will help to keep it free from politics if there no personal profit or advantage provli ed for in the law creating such a corn mission I have felt it my duty to do all that I can between the sessions af the General Assembly to study these matters of general interest It is the duty of the Superintendent of Publi Instruction to do this and as these services can be had without additional cost or political contention I suggeE that the Governor and Superintenden of Public Instruction be exofflci members of the commission that all members serve without salary but tha their actual necessary expenses whet engaged in the work shall be paid and in order that the General Assem bly may be in constant touch with and have a part in the work of the commission it would be desirable to have each House or the Governor select one Senator and one Represen tatIve as members of this commission md In order that the women of the State who are most deeply Interestod In the schools may be represented and have their part In the work oMh commission it would probably bo very useful to have one lady member of the commission chosen by the Federa Lion of Womens Clubs and to have the president of the State University the president of one of the State nor mat schools one superintendent ol ounty schools and one superintendent ot city schools the last three to be ap pointed by the Governor Relief For Country Schools There is very great need for some elief to be given In advance of the eneral revision of the school laws to the country schools which are crippled by our present trustee system which seems to many who Knave stu died the system to be very awkward umbersome and unwise It seems much simpler to have the county as the unit for taxation lor schools and- o have the school taxes collected just as other taxes are collected by the same officers and that in place at- the present school district system there should be a small compact and Tectlve County oBard of Education nnd In oath county to have full charge id control of the appropriation of the school funds of each county in accordance with the needs of each school district having due regard to the number of scholars the school hours t1e number of teachers and their pay and the condition of the schoolhouses and apparatus and that each county should be divided into a small numb or say four six or eight school divi sions according to the need of the county each to be managed by a Dirt sian Board of Education which turn should select the teachers for tlie schools in each division with one local trustee for each school or sub distrIct to look after the immediate needs of his school The division lards should be made up of these local trustees and the chairman of the division board should be a member af- the County Board of Education The County Superintendent should be ex ofDclo chairman of the County Board Te selection of these school officials should be rigidly separated from mere parJjsan or political influence In con action with this change In the man t 1 hI r earnestly commend to your considers tlon upon the advice of the Superb tendent of Public Instruction afterI

policy and the ability learping an noble character of Its officers ana teachers 1 do not doubt that the Geenn Assembly will take pleasure In so amending the laws providing for the aportionment ot free scholarships in the Normal Schools as to make It equitable and base It impartially on the school census with the county as the unit of apolntmnet and that all board of trustees of State educational institutions Including the State College should be bipartisan or in some way guarded against mere political part influence It seems also reasonable- in view of the help extended to the State College
