the decIsion handed down by the Court of appeals Saturday In which that tri bunal holds the Sullivan school law enacted by the 1908 Legislature fully constitutional t hat County Boards of Education must make up the bud get of expenses for all schools In the counties arid present them to the County Fiscal Courts and that the Fiscal Courts shall levy whatever local school taxes the County Boards ask forIt will be recalled that the last General Assembly enacted a new school law which Is generally known as the Sullivan law Representative Jere A Sullivan of Richmond having Introduced 1t The law made strlk Ing and radical changes to the common school system of the State and It was believed that It met all the requirements of It modern scheol system for the common schools In particu lar the measure provided for local taxation to defray the burden of school expenses exclusive of teachers sala riesThe State provides 3000000 a year for Its common schools but the law prescribes that this must be expended for teachers salaries only How to provide for the other Incidental expenses ot school manage went IncludIng buildings repairs fuel etc was the problem Soon after the law went Into ef fect Its constitutionality was attacked and the Fiscal Court of Ilopkins county retuned to make the local tax levy recommended by the Comfy Board of Education Tune County Board then Instituted action In the Christian Circuit Court to compel the Fiscal Court to make time levy Tile lower court decided against time County Board but the latter body won out on appeal- Now every Fiscal Court In the State Is obliged under the provllllonil of time law and Uo courts decisIon to make the Icral school tax levy deter mIned upon by the County Board of Education As a result of the operation of the new law estimates are that there will be collected locally for school purposes In tile State this year about 2500000 as against 180000 local tax collected for the same purpose last year HERBERT Juno 21Mr

Pelllsson who knew the value of time could not remain Idle occupied himself In writing and frequently as a hind of relaxation from studylie would play on the flute On these occasions he often remarked that a large spider which hail made its web in a corner of his room came out of Its hole and appeared to listen to the music Pelllson to encourage it would continue to play and at last the Insect became so familiar that it would approach the prisoner and feed in his handThis was a great pleasure for Pel lison he became fond of the Insect h had thus tamed looked upon It as a companion and found even in such society a relief from solitude The circumstances having come to the knowledge of the jailers they communicated it to the governor of the bastlle who being a man Incapa ble of sympathy fulfilled but too well the duties of his office and by hIs rigorous treatment of the captives rendered imprisonment in that cita del one of the most dreadful punishment that could be zifiictcl Determination to deprive the prisoner of the consolation he had acqul ed the governor went to his cell and said Well Mr Pelllson I hear you have found a companion It is true replied he and though we can not converse we understand each other very well But I can hardly believe what I have been told said the governor and I should like to be convinced of the truth Pellison not suspecting and bad intention Im mediately called the insect which handIcrushing it under his foot left the room without saying a word Pelll son was released from prison a short time after by the king who restored him to favor and loaded him with honors but he was frequently heard to say that he would never forgive the governor that act of wanton cruelty to L American Girls and Titles The responsibility foi the

Important in Our History i IIt isa strange fact of history that fame of President Polk has been greatly obscured and that he has not been remembered as tho head of an administration which dealt with event as big as any which have engaged the attention of American statesmen Tlis is a bit odd when it Is realiz ed that he was the firsts dark horse of American politics and defeated the renowned Henry Cloy for presidency It Is even more remarkable that In his own time and during tile campaig voters should have derisively asked Who is James K Polk When the facts are that ho was not only one of the enthusiastic supporters of An drew Jackson hIs neighbor and friend but had served in Congress fourteen years Men Speaker of the House of Representatives for two terms and resigned to accept the governorship ofTennesseeDuring administration 18451849 he conducted the war with Mexico He had been elected on the proposition to annex Texas but President Tyler signed the bill just before PolkI assumed office He concluded the treaty of peace with Mexico which gave this country California New Mex Ico Nevada Utah Arizona and parts IItheGreat Britlan and saw Iowa Florida and Wisconsin added to the Union The Independent treasury act and the warehousing act great features of governmental function at this day were passed during the time of his occupancy of the White House He compelled the replacing of the tariff I act of 1842 a protective measure but one based on the principle of tariff for revenue only which remained InI operation for eleven years The Wll j mot provision was enacted into law during his presidency and the farslghi tedness of his California annexation activity was proved by the discovery of gold In 1849 He entered office with a carefully prepared programme and he carried every item Into execution during the one term of hisI administration He was the greatest expansionist In American history for Including Oregon over 1200000 squat miles was added to the United States while he was President nn nrea great er than that of the entire country prior to the purchase of IoulslanaI His sense of justice was alert andI his strong will was demonstrated when he confronted a powerful Imperialistic sentiment which demanded the enI tire annexation of Mexico at the close of the war with that country President Polk refused to heod tho cry nnd the opinions of his cabinet and or dered that the American flag be haul ed down from the capital of the con quered territory This section tend ed to undermine his popularity audI there are many writers Including Col onel Roosevelt who Insists that he was among the smallest of the men filling the highest office in the gift of the people of this nation The late James G Elaine in his Twenty Years of Congress says that Mr

of a complete transportation line between New York and San Francisco which would makb Uncle Sam the direct competitor of the transcontinental railroads is a probability of the near future if the differences between the Pacific Mall Steamship Company one of th Har riman properties and the Panama Railroad the Government controlled corporation are not satisfactorily ad justedIBecause it contends that It Is lot getting a fair share of the through freight rate between New York and San Francisco the Pacific Mall has served notice on the Panama Rail road that next August it will with draw from the traffic agreement by which it operates a line of steamers from San Francisco to the Isthmus- It has been announced however by a high official of the Panama Rail road that if the Pacific Mall with draws Its steamships the Government will inaugurate a line to replace it either building or chartering a fleet of boats for the purpose Such action would give the Government control and operation 6f the entire Pan ama route from New York to San Francisco Alracdy the Government owns the Pnaama Railroad and through it a line of steamers between here and Colon The establishment of Government steamers from Panama to San Francisco would complete the chainIt a question if the powerful Influences at Washington which are solidly aligned against anything in th way of Government ownership will al low matters to come to the point where the Pacific Mall will withdraw Its steamers from the Pacific run The granting of a more liberal share of rates to the Pacific Mall probab ly would be preferred to tin emergen cy in which the Government would be forced to become a competitor of the transcontinental trunk lines Those who favor the Government ownership idea declare on the other hand that the present administration of the Panama Railroad and steamship line from New York to Colon Is making them pay and that there is no reas on why a Government line from Pan ama to San Francisco In

the fiftieth second Then the circuit re mains open for 10 seconds There Is silence all along the telegraph wires At the other ends where there are time balls or merely train operators the long pause

Without meaning to detract In any way from the greatness of Wilbur and Orville Wright the airship men it can be claimed that but for a woman they would today probably be repairing bicycles or automobiles for a living unknown and unsung That woman Is their sister Miss Cathar- Ine Wright who has recently return ed home with them after enjoying the favor of Kings Presidents and Princes on the continent There is no prettier story than the devotion of the members of the Wright family each to the other There were five childrenfour boys and a girl One of the boys left home early and now resides In Kan sas Another became a bookkeeper married and had a family of his own to look after The sister fitted her self for teaching and secured a place In the public schools of DaytonOhlo Wilbur and Orville remained at home with their parents and this sister About the time the two brothers got through school the bicycle craze was intas a It was white conducting this busi ness that they began working upon a machine which developed Into the flying machine Their original Idea was to make a toy a sort of aerial toboggan upon which a fellow could have fun They constructed a plane of that kind and found that BO long as It moved forward it would sup port them Then the Idea of attach Ing a motor to It and driving it for ward entered their minds It was at this critical period In their careers that the aid of the sister was sought She had taken an In terest in the gliding machine but when they began talking about tI- ling machines she grew enthusiastic Right away Wilbur and Orville Wrlgh with the aid of their sister took up the serious study of aeronautics They sUh1Jectas they of the volumes j 111111notthe books and that was their salvation In a sense calCUlatlOns1and Before any demonstration was made before her brothers had tested the machine they were building Miss Wright knew that it was possible for man to fly She was the first woman In the world to know It positively She knew It because she herself load made the calculations She was will ing to stake what little money she had saved troll her salary as a schoolteacher along with the smaller amount outIcomeing to her calculations She staked lit and she won When the machine was completed and was found to be a success and It became de srable to get In touch with the nations of the world It was Cath arlne Wright who brought the aero plane to the attention of the men who would have to be dealt with The letters which the representatives j of foreign Governments received were written by this woman in the name of her brothers All this time Miss Wright was going dally to the schoolroom Even their neighbors did net know she took any interest in the flying machine knew that It was TheyI the Wrights to be devoted to other But they did not know that this patient schoolteacher had master ed the Intricacies oft he air and that withImachineihad become famous nnd her brothers were demonstrating It to the world Miss
