Frankfort. A new census bulletin devoted to an analysis of Kentucky population figures has just been issued. It contains the following In 1910 Kentucky's urban population was 24.3 per cent of the total, or G55.442. These persons dwelt In all Incorporated cities and towns ot over 2,500 inhabitants. In 1910 Kentucky's rural population was 75.7 per cent, or 1,734,403 persons, who dwelt without tho incorporated cities and towns. In 1900 tho urban population percentage was 21.8, or 467,668 persons, and the rural population was 78.2, or 1,679,606 persons. ' There has thus been a slight decrease in the proportion ot urban population. There aro 24 counties that show a larger proportion of urban population In 1910 than 1900, and St eou"i; ohe- - a smo-Hurian proportion. Of tho remainder, 84 Kentucky counties are shown to have been wholly rural at tho taking of both the 1900 and 1910 census. A comparison of the total population in 1910 of the cities and towns having a population of not less than 2,500 each with the total papulation of the same places in 1910, shows an Increase of 14.9 per cent. During the samo period the rural population Increased 4.2 per cent. Tho population ot urban areas thus Increased more than three times as rapidly as rural in Kentucky, while in the United States as a whole, urban .population Increased 34.9 per cent, and rural 11.2 per cent in the last decade.

It Is apparent that you will reach your starting point with your calculations one day out, unless you have provided for this by striking out an extra day on the calendar. It you travel against the sun you will havo to add a day to the calendar. The convention that has been established with regard to this matter is to consider the day as begtnnlng at in 180th meridian, so that the lSlst meridian Is always a day ahead of th 179th.

He mournfully raised his eyes toward tho deep blue sky, where the stars wero floating Hko whlto lilies on the surface of a cloar, calm lake. Then he cast them on the earth, whore few more helpless beings than himself woro moving toward their Inevitable goal the tomb. Already he had ed sixty of- - tho stages which lead to It, and he had brought from his Journey nothing but errors and remorse. His health was destroyed, his mind urirurnlsbed. his heart sorrowful, and his old age devoid of comfort. Tho days of his youth rose up In a vision boforo him, and ho recalled the solemn moment when his father had placed him at the entrance of two roads, one leading Into a peaceful, sunny land, covered with a fertile harvest, and resounding with soft, sweet songs; while tho other conducted the wanderer Into a doep, dark cave, whence thcro was no Issue, where poison flowed Instead of water, and whore serpents hlssod and crawled. Ho looked toward the sky, and cried out in his anguish: "Oh, youth, return! O my father, place mo once moro at the crossway of life, that I may choose tho better road J" Dut the days of his youth had passed away, and his parents were with the departed. Ho saw wandering lights float over dark marshes, and then disappear. "Such," he said, "were the days of my wasted life!" He saw a star shoot from heaven, and vanish In darkness athwart tho churchyard. "Behold an emblem of myself I " ha exclaimed; and the sharp arrows of unavailing remorse struck him to tha neart. na. Then he remembered his early cosa- panions, who had entered life with him, but who having trod the Daths of virtue and Industry, were now happy ana nonorea on this New Year's night. Tho clock In the hleh church tower struck, and the sound, falling; on nis ear, recalled the many tokens of tho love of his parents for him; the prayers they had offered up In his hehalf. Overwhelmed with sham and grief, he dared no longer look toward that heaven where they dwelt His darkened eyes dropped tears, and with ono despairing effort he cried aloud, "Come back, my early days! Come back!" And his youth did return; for all this had been but a dream, visiting his slumbers on Now Year's night. Ho was still young, his errors only wero no dream. Ho thanked God fervently that tlmo was still his own; that be had not yet entered the deep, dark cavern, but he was free to tread tho road leading to the peaceful land where sunny harvests wave. Ye who still linger on the threshold of life, doubting which path to choose, remember that when years shall bo passed, and your feet shall stumble on tho dark mountain, vnn will cry bitterly, but cry In vain, "O youth, return! Oh, give me back sny early days!" Jean Paul Itlchter. BLOCKADED tled on, my kidneys and at such times, tho passages of the secretions becamo too frequent.
