to Berea Whv is this when we have a good school at Mt Vernon I believe in protecting home institutions I know of several teachers in the county who never went higher than the Level Green Academy and held first class certificates But tha t noted instiuctor J N Brown Buck Varnon had but few equals and no Superiors Well do we remember our bygone days at old Level Green the old blue back speller and Harveys gram mar that have long been dropped and other taken in their stead which do not compare with themEd Woodal was in Laurel county last week mixed up in the primary Ed remember the fate of poor old Trav On last Saturday night Marshal Burton went to a certain place not far from Livingston and made a search and found abot 200 pounds of brass He had it loaded on a hand car and brought to Livingston This is railroad brass and it is a heavy per alto to sell it For some time there have been junk dealer buying up brass here and all the brass in the county has been bought or stolen The electric machiery belonging to the New Livingston Ccal Co has been rob bed of all the brass and trolly wire has been taken They have even gone so far as to take the whistle off the Livingston Lumber Cos boiler and in the last few nights there have been attemptst o enter houses So you see our marshal has his hands full But one thing we can say for him is that he is equal to the occation and fooner

Vernon Ky Dear Sir As I have been reading some good articles in your paper on Good Roads recently I concluded to contribute some few lines oc casionally on that very important subjectMen like Franklin said and wrote things hundreds of years ago that still have as much influance on the minds of men now as when first said So might I say some thing that could possibly live till we will have some pikes in old Rockcastle But whether I do or not I have some pleasure in writing and if it doesnt reach the waste basket will have some pleasure in seeing it in print But it would give me great pleasure if this will only convert one that will enlist with us and help fight the battles for the cause of Good Roads In a conversation with my old iriei d J 1 White he predicted that Rockcastle would not have any pikes before my great grandchildren would live to oe as old as Methusalah If that be the case none of my writing will live so long but still there is some pleasure- din fighting for a g cause I meet good road advocates almost every day that say many good things for the cause But how much do we want pikes I remember of reading when quite a small boy in a school text book of a poor man and his family moving from one of the Eastern states westward and the moving was doi e in a wagon drawn by ore horse almost the only property owned by the poor iamly While crossing a bridge in New York tie horse broke through the rctten tim bersand was killed The pOOl people could not purs ue their journey or return to their old home In the mean time a great crowd gathered about all claiming to pity the poor family but that did not give any relief but presently one man holding up a ten dollar bill said I pitty them to that ex tent and asked the crowd to what extent they pittied the sorrow stricken family In a short time there was enough made up to buy another horse for the travelers and they went on their journey- So money will do more in some cases than talk Now how much do you want a pike The fiscal court possibly would appropriate some every year it the people along a proprosed line ofroad would lend a helping hand Now to start such a list I will subscribe 1500 in money and 500 in labor to build a turnpike from Mt Vernon to my home at which Bromo post office is located a distance of about six miles from town and dn a di rect route from Mt Vernon to the Pulatki county line by the way ofI Level Green one of the best on which such a road could be built in the county and one which would benefit more people I could speak for some of my ueighbors who have offered to con tribute very liberally to the cause but will let them speak for them selves If everybody in Mt Ver non and along said line will only put their shoulder to the wheel we may get some pikes a few years sooner than Bro White prophesied- If this seems to have any influ ence I will write up my survey in full and show the number of people that would be benefited directly and to what extent as far as Iam able If we can Ret enough enlist ed we will fight it out on this line if it takes all summerP HSuullS 1887 THE BIG Laurel County t i t FAIR LONDON KY AUG 24567 1 909 Biggest Besf County in Sfafe BRADLEY

ONE YEAR IOO tAdvertising rates made known on application MEMBER OF KENTUCKY PRESS ASSOCIATION THE NEW SCHOOL LAW No more important question arises for solution at the present time than that of the outcome of the new school law What is going to be its effect on attendance at school How much will the better preparation of teachers be promoted To what extent will it be administered fo graft In other words will the large sum ot money apportioned each year percapita and the county fund arising from local taxation be di verted from the purpose for whicn it is intended to replenish the purses of needy relatives or the peripatetic jobber in school house building and repairs Will contracts for building and repairs be awarded to responsible lowest and best bidders or will it be given to some one not responsible and who as has been done under the old law erect buildings wholly in adequate for a school house and without any regard for quantity or kind of specifications for q uantitv or kind of material used in construction It is much easier to ask than to answer these questions We have been playing school so long with such meager results lihat the education of our children becomes serious question The per cent of illiteracy of Kentucky as compared with other ststes is so marked that it has become a reproach and a byword It is hardly conceivable that any EOdodefately educated and in I y t telligent community could be the scene of so much lawlessness and violence as has been common in many sections of our state for the last decade Shocking acd murderous as has been the condition among the feudit s of some of thesouthem and eastern counties it has been comparatively harmless as compared with the state of terror and intim idation to say nothing of arson andmurder committed in the large areas devoted chiefly to tobacco culture Literacy the power to read and write and perform the function of business life is not solely the end of education and no individual or community can be said to be educated till they have learned what are the rights and priviliges and duties ofcitizenship and been taught to observe and respect them It cannot be presumed that night riders and mobs are composed wholly of illiterate per sons nor is it true that the sole cause of crime is the result of illiteracy but be that as it may the communities that foster and perpetuate such wide spread dis regard for law and its proper enforcement utterly fail to come up to the standard of enlightened Christian civilization Where churches and schools are nott regarded as the chief means for the best ends of civil govern ment conclusive alike to the safety and welfare of person and property it may be said that there the standard of citizenship is low and requires only a slight disturbance to foment mobnight riders or a Ku Klux Klan Were it not for the milita of Ky Kentuckys Standing Army if you please backed by U S Courts and Soldiers of U S Army some sections of Ky would to day be in a state of anarchy- In view of this indctment if the evidence justifies it what should be the the attitude of the iig counties of Kentucky toward the increased facilities for more pay tor better teaching for longer termsI It has become practical under the New School Law to add these facilities to our system Kentucky has created a general fund arising frpm its School Bonds and direct taxation that provides the magnificent sum of 4 per capita for the education of every cBUd write and black f n tie I Hatsa Stetson Hits 4 oo Green u 4y4v ISO U U li 2 OO IjL i si Sl t 3 00r- tity t

our opportunity may pass forever Judging by the past twenty five years more may see the old families scattered to the four winds ot the earth and that sacred old t pot con demned and buildings erected there ou The only way to avoid such a fate is to go to work and make it an object of beauty and utility Engineers tell us that should be done by first building a first class Macadamized road or boulevard along side of it asa foundation Then retaining wall can be built at a very small cost and that by the families interested in the border lots The road reccommended by engineers should be 20 feet wide and 200 yards long with not less than 14 inches oi metal Fifty dol lars will pay for the sped lications and grading and 40000 will pay for the metal at 80 cents per cubic yard it may be however that it can be built for 60 cents per cubic yard and that would take off anoth er hundred dollars Cant our good women call a meeting organize a civic improvement club appoint their soliciting
