the race for the state senate in this district composed of the counties of Graves Hickman and Fulton Several candidates are expected to announce for representative in this county within the next few days and among them are W H Frost Joe F Warren J P Evers John R Ray and W B Stanfield While the appropriation bill to be passed at this session of Congress will total close to 80000000 for improvement of our waterways it must not be inferred that this entire amount will be in cash Not more 35000000 will be available for r immediate expenditure The re mainder of this big appropriation a will be spread over two three and four years of contract work As a 4 matter of tact it is questionable whether the sum of 80000000 could be actually expended in the short space of twelve months font is doubtful whether the contractors could muster enough men andItmachinery to accomplish that r work J- x izaUR u 3r J rr = r= c z ii iiTHE HICKMAN COURIER h B1 BEALE W a SPECS J 08EITO EJlUn aid rrpri

In contrast to our English education which to a largo extent Ui classical I find that in America It is the practical subject which are principally taught and technical classes and schools are to bo found every where My observations lead me to bcllovo that the average American boy when ho leaves school is Infinite ly bettor fitted for his vocation and struggle in lifo than the Knglish boy and in consequence there are in the United States a simitar proportion of failures and tower who slide down hill and eventually join the pauper criminal or submergedl tenth claM From a purely business point of view Amoriealis sec in tho money spent on education a magnificent investment for their coHiitry While in England our rich mon spend large sums on sports of various kinds It appears to be tho hobby of moneyed American to doroto enormous amounts of money to Uio endowment and equipment of educational insti tutionsThough I do not come here to the states to criticise I am constantly asked by those interested in education to do so and may thoroffire men Lion one or two points whteh have struck mo forcibly Ono Iis tho larg preponderance of women teaohcr Personally I should favor the em ployment of female teaahars for both days and girls up to the ago of say 12 years beyond this I am in favor of turning the pupils over to mono In this respect if I may say so American education in my view requires some overhauling Another point I love noticed is the comparative neglect of mucus talent among your school children Seeing how large a proportion of ho population are of Gorman Italian or ether foreign blood all owenUalljr musical the neglect of this subject is to mo a very surprising Idreuauta- nP till matter of special schools for the mentally and phjrstoall deficient I rather think England is ahead of you Oa the other hand the summer vacation solvools of Xew York have melted eur talent andI admiration as a result of which a movement has tarn started in IxMMlen under the

Threlkeld was reelected to that place I thank the delegates for their kind feelings toward me but I am cot sure that they have acted wisely I fear I shall fall short of their expectation However if I can have the support of the members and friends I shall do the test I can for the oifianltaUon As soon at possible I with to confer with our president get a list of all the mem hers in the county make

the subject of better prices In the meantime let every number turn to page 7 Up to Date farming January 15 and road that sago carefully I have before me a liltle paper called The Little Chren ole for

an oxtI ample in arithmetic for you Uup pose all the corn were loaded en a rain how lug would the traits el- AD average our carries about SCO 1 ushels of corn It would require i924000 oars to transport the corn crop to market A freight oar In ItwliHR the coupling Is about Jt fed long This train then would each around the earth at the wjwa or and leave oars enough to Ml a Ide traok running from Chicago to ersla How If this calculation is Correct let us add on oars to haul ar 776J6JOOO bushels of wheat ml the train will circle the globe wine and several mile to spare yet the farmers get 40000000 less for heir grain this year than they did ant year and every banker lawyer lector merchant and mechanic who lives In the grain belt suffers because he farmer was too industrious and rorked too hard An old adage says i It Iis the early bird that niches the worm Now is this stage true The farmers rose early anll worked until late They raised 10 much oem and wheat they could not take care of it Thousands ofII ushels are now rolling in the fields I or being washed away by the floods I The pessimist says we cannot hold our mops and if we continue to raise uch bumpr crops as we did last year they are right Therefore in lead of working so hard to raise a bumper crop this year suppose we ircpare to take care of what we do aise Now is the time to prepare granaries cribs elevators pens or lomethlng to hold our grain Now II the time to plan better roads so we can haul off next years crop whenI Ihe price is right regardless of the tcason When the old farmer toldl Patrick Henry that the early birdI aught the worm Henry replied thatl the worm should not have been outL 10 early and he would not have been aught The farmers should take Henrys advice this year and not get out so early This would prevent two more troubles You all re member the car famine Now sup pose we had stored our grain and waited for the minimum price Then no cars would have been needed to haul the corn and wheat to market The roads could easily have hauled enough to feed the people and car ried back enough to supply fuel Why must we all rush our crops tio market at once glut the market nod drain all the money out of the bank so that our president and the banker are worrying over an elastic curren oy Why rush our crops off and make a demand for money and car for which we will pay an exhorbitanl price that they may lay idle for the next eight or nine months You may be sure that when the national banks issue their elastic currency and the transportation companies build their new cars the farmer will pay for it all But let us quote the Little Chronicle once more The grain gamblers tell us that if we hold cur wheat Russia will supply the demand The Chronicle says In the province of which Samara is the capital there are 3000000 pea pIe practically starving to death Crops have failed and the peasants are driven to eating adulterated bread It is made of tour mingled with earth and the ground bark of trees stuff that no human being can eat unless driven to it by raging hunger Bands of peasants arc wandering about in many districts threatening to sack the Lorna unless work and food are given them And Samara is but one province out of many that are visited by amine Yct this Is the country Ihe gamblers toll us will supply the European de wand If we hold our wheat for a fair price There will be a telephone mooting at Cayce on Saturday the 2nd of February AH persons interested In rural phones are requested to be present If there Iis tI oe and op portunity I shall be glad to address the

earlier Time time lens coino for parents lo realize they havo made some grave mistakes In the first place it is a mistake for a rich father to bring up his son in ignorance of the responsibilities of

money But a question moro vital still is that of sox There is a tendency among parents nowadays to assume an unwise timidity in speaking of such matters If instead of being timid and obscure in their advice parents would be quite frank it would prevent much evil from which tho world now suffers To many girls the root meaning of marriago is a sealed book and this is largely the fault of their mothers From whom can they bet ter look for advice than from their mothers Yet the Litter often remain silent because of a want of courage to speak plainly- I say to mothers give your daughters tho bonofit of your own wisdom and when they become women they will not have to accept that servile and ornamental place which mon are wont lo assign to them Society is full of misery due to the blunders

places bitter experience comes to the heart dear ones are taken away riches are dissipated the trusted prove unworthy of confidence and the soul one is like a ship beaten by the wind and tossed by the waves There is only one way to look Look up There far above the black clouds forever shines the blue There sometimes out of sight but Inexpressibly near to the frail one who seeks His help Is the Friend who is ever gracious When we are hedged in and go grop- Ing In the dark wilderness ot dlspair his angels are ever ready to take you by the hand and lead you out There is nothing so healthful in this world as a cheerful heart and a disposition to look on the rosy side of everything trouble is not a physi sal ailment but a mental condition It is hard on the brain hard on the body and hard on your friends A clear conscience a brave heart and a healthy liver means a long and happy life It is the mistake of the age to worry and fret over things that cannot be realized Laugh at trouble and it vanishes Never decieve your children If there is something they should not know tell them so but do not tell them a falsehood for sooner or later they will find you out They look upon their parents as models on which to form themselves and when a child learns that its mother has de ceived it something is lost forever from its nature The keen edge of virtue is a trifle dull a lie is never again so terrible a thing in his eye when he finds that his mothers lips have uttered an untruth to him ALL HAIL All hail to the New Year I What gifts will he bring Far richer than any proceeding year in the vast wealth of invention and discovery and achievement bequeathed by the glorious years that have passed what promise is offered that the world will bt wiser and better for his coming What has been done in the year just drawn to a close Iis the promise and prophecy of better things to come in the one at whose portals we enter We know not what the new year may bring forth but We know that of what was gained for mankind in the one just finished its course nothing will be lost that Is addingtoto the domain of man over the forces of natureTruly there Sano pause in the operation All the achievements of the past are but the elementary beginnings of the great work on which the science and invention have enteredthe stepping stones to higher things And they are pregnant with the promise

the volura us document should appear in this department as it relates to the home The president says t lam well aware of how difficult it is to pass a constitutional amend ment Nevertheless in my judg meat the whole question of marriage and divorce should be relegated to the authority of the national con gross At present the wide differ ence in the laws of the different slates on this subject result in scan dais and abuses and surely there is nothing so vitally essential to the welfare of the nation nothing around which the nation should so bend itself to throw every safeguard as the home life of the average citi zen The change would be good from every standpoint In particu lar it wauld be good because it would confer on tbe congress the power at once to deal radically and efficiently with polygamy and this should be done whether or not marriage and divorce are dealt with It is neither safe nor proper to leave the question ofpolygamy to be dealt with by the several states Power to deal with it should be conferred on the national governmentWhen home ties are loosened when men and women cease to re gard a worthy family life with all its duties fully performed and all its responsibilities lived up to as the life best worth living then evil days for the commonwealth are at hand There are regions in our land and classes of our population where the birth rate has sunk below the death rate Surely it should need no demonstration to show that willful sterility is from the standpoint of the human race the one sin for which the penalty is national death race death a sin for which there is no atonement a sin which is the more dreadful exactly in proportion as the mn and women guilty thereof arc in other respects in character and bodily and mental powers those whom for the sake of the state it would be well to see the fathers and mothers of many healthy children well brought up in homes made hap py by their presence No man no woman can shrink the primary du ties of
