KY ccc JUDGE R G WILLIAMS MAKES STRONG AD DRESS Judge R G Williams made a strong and practical speech to a great crowd at the Brodhead hair on Thursday of last week The very hearty reception given him shows how very close he is to the hearts of the Rockcastle people He said in part Ungratefulwould I have been had I declined the very generous invitation of this Association o address you this afternoon En circled by the engirdling hills of this old county I first saw the light of day Amid its nmnnering streams I was reared and by its people I was honored at the rolls Time saw my residence removed and while success has crowned my efforts in another field my heart untravelled fondly turns to the people among whom I was born Being keenly interested in your spirituai financial and educational welfare I come to have a heart to heart talk to reason with you tor the good of all lam warranted in speaking plainly that I might be clearly understood The public conscience is being aroused as never before Awaive of public sentiment demanding higher education has seized the people with moving effect Rockcastle stands low in the scale of general education because of the indifference of oar people to its needs Our citizens must be aroused to the necessity of giving the children a better chance It pays to give them a common school education It will pay to give them a common school education It will pay to send them to the County High School yea even to the State University Step by step they should be prepared carefully to meet lifes dutiesThe County the State and the Nation needs honest men brave men broadminded and educated men and the schools must supply themTb i schools of any county can be made just as good as the people wint them Adequate laws backed bV public interest is the very life of the public schools We have a new school system in Kentucky and it is big with possibilities The county is the unitone school district The subdistricts are composed of educational divisions The county is the unit for taxation There is a County Board of Education having charge of the salaries finances and of the distribution of funds There can be not less than four nor more than eight school divisions each managed by a Division Board which selects the teachers for the schools in its division One local trustee is elected to look after the immediate needs of his particular school The Division Boards are made up of these local trustees and the Chair of the Division Board is a member of the County Board of Education Parents and tax payers must awaken to the importance of selecting for school trustees only such men as stand out in your respective communities as pre eminent for their integrity character and progressive business sense Modern school buildings must be constructed both house and grounds made tasteful and attractive while competent and progressive teachers should be in charge of the children The pupils are entitled to every con venience as a means of encourage ment The teachers parents and pupils should with zealand enthusiasm keep the gronnds not only neat and clean but things of beautyParents dont you want to improve vour children Isnt it your greatest pleasure and highest duty to assist them in every possible way to obtain an education You will lay down your life for your child but will you not wake up to education their crying need ofa better As laborers it will increase their efficiency and enlarge their earning power It is said that the Oriental laborer has no initiative He does only what he is told to do and just as directed If anything happens in theabsence of the over seerer he is lost for lie J does not know how to meet an emergency or to devise a new methodon the spur of the moment Education enables a person to present with intelligence his elf im for proper treatment A ast impnv mentin the appearance conduct and moralworth follows closely mans intellectual improvement It raises the standard of social relation and furnteles the com parilonship of boks Education supplies a hif hr form of enjoyment lessens the desire to commit crime develops higher moral instincts and leads us to a gentler nobler and purer plane of conduct The first bill enacted by the Legislature of the halfcivilized Filipinos was unanimously adopted appropriating tone million of dollars for the r construction of school houses throughout the province AT HOLE The surest way to make Rockcastle a great county is to make its people wise knowing ingenious thoughful by communi eating to the whole mass ofour people the highest degree ot the most improved kind ot education compatible with the system of practical things Bend every energy to perfect the metheds of the free schools and of all schools so that the understanding of our people will be opened kindled and guided on the true path of intel lectual life A learned county is always a prosperous one Good roads good school houses and a deep interest in both will bring great riches and becoming culture Listen my Countrymen I There is not an occupation of civilized life that is not better done by a bright man than a dullone by an instructed man than an untutored one Every occupation demands mental effort backed by the physical I believe it was Mr Mann in his report to the Boaid of Education of the great State of Massachusetts who shows by precise statistics that out of the Whole range of mechanical industry the well educated toiler does more work does it better wastes less uses his machinery to a greater advantage and more profit earns more money and commands more confidence rises taster and higher from the lower to the more advanced positions of employment thaa the uneducated employe Under our new law within two years from its passage one or more high school building must bi constructed in each county in the State in which a course ot from two to four years must be taught The course is selected by the State Board of Education Hence the pupils advance from the public to the high school and from that to the State University ANOTHER DUTY Our people are generally poor but it is our own fault Our soil is thin but it is due to the fact that we do not lillit right We raise but little for we have had virtually no market We have not hada market because we had not roads over which we could haul our products to it Not having either roadsor market our people have not producedand hence farm life in Rockcastle has been both lonesome Qnd unprofitable The roads have been so rough that it would take all day for the good wife to go to town with atew eggs to exchange for groceries and in addition both wife and horse would be completely tired out by the time they reached home So impassible are they you find but little it any profit in hauling your products to the railroad aiidrstili less pleasure in visiting your neighbors or attending serviceseen in a nearby Church The real cause of all our ills is our terribly rough roads With an improvement ot them prosperity will come education will quickly follow and this county will move rapidly to the front With broad modern highways boys and girls could come from the remotest parts of this county and get a higher edn cation all the time remaining under the parental roof at night Farm life would be more attractive pleasant and re munerative With goodroads farm land would treble in value and demand will be easily found for BetterII you time and time is money- I appeal to you my good people to arrouse yourselves to the im portance of this great work You owe it to your community to yourselves to your families and to coming generations You will find happiness and prosperity in the doing of it Faithfully dis charged these present duties and supply these long felt wants With this teaching and these precepts I would fill this county with health wealth and happiness with love and sun shine with the song of birds with the sweet perfume of flowers and throw over allan

Friday by EDGAR S ALBRIGHT SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR IOO Advertising rates made knoym on application MEMBER OF tYKENTUCKY PRESS ASSOCIATION BEING a Democrat this paper kept hands off in the Republican Primary We are not a political uBoss nor do we believe in- Bossism Therefore we would not attempt to dictate or even controle the action of the coming Democratic County Convention It is up to the people to select such men for office as they deem best fitted But as a citizen having a family residing here possessing a few dollars worth of property and desiring to see this county prosper we have a deep seated interest in the election of some officers Especially those who make the county levy mace appropriations allow Countv Claims those who have charge of- Theseour County Road Fund men are the Magistrates The Democrats should see to it that a very strong liberal minded L progressive intelligent man be comes a candidate in every Magisterial District Such are to be found and the good citizens should set about to find them and urge them to run But if perchance such a Democrat jcannpt be found and the Republicans have nominated a man who is not worthy of the position he seeks then let the Democrats and progressive Republicans join hands and get a real live decent Republican and elect him There is no politics in such an office or any other county office and the thing we want and must have is good clean aggressive officers whatever their politics might be in National Races The time is here when we must act talk and vote for the best interest of our community irrespective of politics B KO D H E A D The Brodhead fair has come and gone and only a memory is left that such an event has past us so rapiyly From what can be ascertained at this writing it was a success in every particular not only as again to those pos sessing stock in the company but to the people of this and ad joinging counties who exhibited their stock and farm products were awarded as liberal as could be done and keep the Associa tion on a safe basiand from the pleasure seeker we have heard no complaint No where in the realms of pleasure does the words spoken or a smile ex changed a little ramble with those we raerly meet have the same effect as it does at the Brod head fair Nothing was spared by the people of our little town to make everyone believe at this occasion the latchstring hung most prominently on the outside and welcome the word extened to all The Association as a whole has awakened to the fact that we can have one of the best fairs here in the country and to do so the company will not de dare any dividend this season and call the remaing capitol stock move or enlarge the grounds make the premiums etter get more attractions and in every way make it better The crowds are becoming so enormous and accommodations not sufficient for the people We mention only a few of these facts that the people may know that at this early date plans are being laid and preparations made for the greatest exhibition the Association has ever given in 1010The Hamiltonian Society feels very much flattered also very grateful to the large attendance each evening during the fair They no doubt feel amply repaid peopleiM B Bowling who bas been barbering here for the last two years has purchased the shop from Fisher at Mt Vernon and i i Hats Y Stetson Hatsk goo Green t I 50 5k 240 jst r

nine free scholarships in Brown Memorial School one for each voting precinct and one for the countYat large By way of explanation we wish to say that these scholarships are governed by the old

once to Miss McCord so that the correct location may be ascertained before examination day which will be Sept 9th in the school building It is hoped that every district will be represented at this examination Those students of the High School who are teaching during the fill term but are expecting to enter the High School after Christmas will find the faculty of the High School ready tohelpi them in their effort to carry on some studies at home and ar rangements may be made for weekly recitations If so desired Classes for review of common branches and in physiology civil govorn ment and
