action of the people of Mt Aiyernpn on my turnpike x makes me reflect on what my old friend J L White said about r Rockcastle It looks like just now as though his prfgncstications will r come true as the people of this county are not aptlo revive the pike question formany years if we fail this time after making the i progress that we have toward I know from experience the feelings of Mr W J Sparks when he wrote his article his offer as I have any four men and then would approach men on the subject that was financially worth a half dozen time as much as I am that would not give any thing not even a good word for the cause would make me feel like going way back and dywn But that wont do What would be the condition ofthe world today religiously speaking if all Christian workers in the past would have gotten disheartened and quit the cause of christianitY just becaueh resio Yitbe world cu diJOt be4 converted to the faith of Christ So if any good cause is a mgn is r convinced that it isO

county With all thes pikes made ve could have consolidated schools which would mean a great deal to Mt Vernon and country people around Now good people of Mt Vernon dont be like the people were in ihe Freedom lay still and letus get worried and try the people of BrodheAd to see if hey want the sample readand possibly a consolidate school I dont intend to give I try both places in vain But I pclieve there is enough people in MtVVercon that are not living alone for themselves to help in thiVgbc d cause If the good p pleYill just give accordance to the way he has been prospered we will build a

the student returns he will have besides the new ones And tbem1111j folks will think more of him he will be more worthy of their re spect And ho will be worth more to his parents too Then as to the expense It is small anyhow In a school like Berea and every one has a chance to earn some thing there so this too will be much easier than it seems However It will cost something in time strength and money to get an education and these things will have to be set off against the advantages But what advantages those are Education is a big word and none of 5 ioo 700 b 900 full re r rf 10 a Most boys
