more deserving that we can say of the old Judge than to repeat what we heard one of the ablest lawyers who has ever practiced at this bar say when asked why is it that Rockcastle has fewer cases to of Appeals than almost any county in the State Said he Because we have one of the best judges in the state and whenever a case comes before him he always decides it fair and impartially and strictly according to the law and evidence Should e Thus reads the Somerset Republican iuItseems to be understood among the many friends of Judge Mor row here and elsewhere that he will be a candidate for reelection though we have no intimation direct from him that such would be the no oppose racej for the fourth term in the high office the duties of which he has performed so ably and so well He was first elected to the judgeship in a cedeuted honor of bean judge of this district for twentyfour consesu tive years and that fact ought to inject into his race in a big measure The announcement of Judge Morrows candidacy for judge of this c OPPo n g whom we have conversed or 1tealdof as expressing opinions are in favor of giving the old Judge a clear track The Judge was the youngest member of the General Assembly in 1861 and voted to throw the state for the Union he was the youngest e only r ttestate central committee of 1865 With except on of the venerable Major Curtis F Burnam of Madison

This training is vastly impor tant that every one may be better fitted to enter tipon the sterner curriculum in which all are called take their course in life The Students of Mt Verncu Collegiate Institute seem to appreciate thec situation and cheerfully devote themselves to a thorough course of study Just here their previous instruction leaves its legible marks The outlook is for a good attendance The students are called to meet Friday evening September 19 for the organization of a Literary Society and Debating Cluba is hoped to have this adjunct of the college conducted in such a manner asto be of practicala benefitto all its members Elocu tionary drill will be given later in connection with the course of study and the Philomathean so ciety will offera fine opportunity to put into practice the elocutionary instructions The music of the Institute to be a special feature Vocal as well as instrumental music is to receive particular attention under the directorship of Mrs C R Hunt A college quartet of male voices is utilized to advantage in every firstclass institution of learning and there is no reasonI why Mt Vernon may not furnish- a quartet that will prove a credit t both the school and the town The probability is also that the harmonies of a college orchestra may be heard in the near future This would be very appropriate in connection with the lecture course t A Current Topics Club is also projected and it is hoped that such a club may revel in its environment as soon as a reading room with various periodicalscan be established But with such grati fying developments realized it would seem that a College or Cit Library must inevitably follow And if inevitable we would reiterate Patrick Henry Let it comeThere are various other features of interest

withdrawing from the race for railroad Commis sioner hi the second district My reasons for quitting the race are that I have a daily news paper on my hands which requires my constant attention making

lines The correspondence method isj one of the developments which is surprising in its attainments There are now about one million students in the United States who pursue this course of study at home and recite and get their cred it marks by corresponding with their college This plan is used with good effect especially in taking a business course of study Many educators regard the correspondence method as superior to oral recitation Dr W R Harper of Chicago Univer sity expresses the opinion that students who have pursued the preparatory course by correspondence and then entered this Univer sity are more thorough than others We are authorized to say that if any of the teachers of the county or any other persons should wish to take a Business Course of Study that Dr Hunt of our College will cheerfully place them in touch with firstclass correspondence schools LIVINGSTON 0 Reuben came to town J H Beard was in Mt Vernon WednesdayMrs Carson is visiting in the Glades W T Merimee went to
