but it is a good deal like preaching Christ and his crucified We still have w preach and still all do not accept a hough they have heard the preaching many many times So with the discttsion pf the good road question We want better roads and we write articles to create moe interest in th question but our eople have beets low infindinr- nn wba1 is best for them Pos tbb kn hut if the rh may m the

Ijnilt hut we need more pikes in the county for it would be the best thing we could do Good roads will the schools and eltor school attendance is badly needed To my way of thinking- a good road will increase the vaue of our farms and would greatly lessen the cost of transportation- We could haul so much more timber to market much more coal could be shipped and in much quicker time Then when we want to go to town we could travel so much more comfortable We allwould have a desire to hive better homes and prosperity would ollow the building of good 4 roads It takes us too long togoN ea- o a-

had good roads I am very much for good roads but how can we get them Here it is in nut shell Issue bonds to build them because with the bonds we can get all the money at once put the money out among the countyIte trailroad company would have to pay the biggest part of the money spent We should begin to talk more for good roads and lets see it we cannot get them The farmers ought to go to talking about this subject and the city Qf Mt Verne should help the onntry folks t build these pikes Give the peal chduceto vote on 3boll question and see it they want tbt roads and it they do tbejsbqnd issue

SIGNAL F1upAY NOV 7 I9II Published every Friday by EDGAR S ALBRIGHT SUBSCRIPTION ONE YBAK 100 Advertising rates made known on application MEMBER OF KENTUCKY PRESS ASSOCIATION tS- Tr fAGt16 t q TTIR compulsory education law of Kentucky in its application to the tural districts is inadequate weak and unenforcible Section 45413 provides That eveiy parent guardian or other person in the State of Kentufcky having the control of any child or children between the ages of seven and fourteen years shall be required to send such child or children annually at least eight weeks of which attendance shall be consecutive to some public or pri vate day or night school for child ren but this does not apply to children taught at home nor to those physically or mentally inca pacitated nor to those excused by the school authorities because of poverty sufficient knowledge or lack of school facilities within two miles The school trustees are buttrarely perform this duty and have jjempnstrated in other ways that the district trustee system is a failure The abolition of this system and the establishment in its place of the county as the school unit with the management of school affairs in the hands ofa County Board of Education have been advocated for several veers This reform witb the strengthening the compu ory education law should have the support of every person and organization in Kentucky The best argument for the enactment ofa compulsory education law in any tate is a large percentage of illiteracy in its population It is generally known that there is a large percentage of illiteracy among the people of Kentucky but some fea tUftS of the situation will come as a surprise to many- Accordiug tp the last U Scen sus there were 262954 illiterate penults in Kentucky this number being 165 percent of the states andtoamake Kenover Thee figures tucky rank 36th in this respect among the 46 states of the Union Every Kentuckian of course re giets the fact that his state ranks so low in the Union with regard to literacy but many salve their feelings with the comforting belief Ifthat v hire the percentage ot illiter acy i un ieniably large the negroes and foreigners m the state arty re spoasible for it There is no foun dation for this belief Itis a s amt fuljfact that the great majority ot the arelnathe ofltbeperlcentcent were foreign whites Although we have such a law and the still further fact exists that there arc any number of children in the county which never attend school a single day yet the trustees of those districts hate not in a single instance reported a single case to the county officials Mr Trustee it is your duty to look after sqch matters and it you fail to do so you fall far short of your duty The teacher is likewise failing to do bis duty if he does not see to it that those of nis district who are not in attendance without a good excuse are not reported This section although frail as it is if enforced will help greatly to relieve the illiteracy situation in the mountains of Kentucky and so frr as our own county is concerned we have assur ance from County Attorney and Judge that the offenders will be dealt with according to the strict letter of the law Mr Trustee and Mr Teacherprenareyour list of thpseof your district not attending school file with the county officials and thenlet the law tike its course Presidential bees will buzz loudly in Washington this winter The reassembling of Congress in December will be the signal fo the opening of various headquarters in this city in the interest of thos- gentlemen who are not adverse to receiving the nomination of thei- respective parties for the Presi dencyThe Democrats are filled with greater hope of su cess this coming campaign than they have been in years and seemingly with good cause As a result there will an unusually great number of can didates in the field for that party nominationThere also be competition President n the Republican camp Taft of course will be a candidau for renomination and Seoatoi LaFollette of Wisconsin whp wa endorsed for that office last week it Chicago at the National Confer ence of Progressive Republicans will be no mean contestor The lieutenants o the various candidates are beginning to flock to Washington already and there will he a lot ot pulling and hailing in the interests of this candidate and that all of whom will have permanent boom headquarters located there Already the LaFollette head quarters has been established and is going full blast tons of litera ture attacking President Tan and and his administratton being sent therefrom broadcast throughout 1 1liIOJ the country The headquarters ofc the President t H1of course Ile at the White Hrtnse On the democratic side Governor Judson Harmons

headquarters there are Govr r Fol IfIntlt rids Governor Marshall of Indiana It is possible that a number of other eligihles will enter the lists before the winter is very far advanced and foremost among these are Representative Oscar W Underwood of Alabama Chairman of the Ways and Means Com mittee of the House and chief of the Democratic tariff makers Gov ernor Dix c f New York and Gov ernor Foss of Massachusetts Mr Bryan has announced that he is out of th running but such an nouncements have been made be fore by the Nebraskan and he still has a host of followers who will try and encourage him to again enter the race at a time when the prospect of Democratic success is greater than it has been in a decade Although the situation is fraught with the greatest uncertainty when it comes to picking candidates a prediction based upon present con ditions throughout the country would give Wilson and Harmon the preference for the nomination o the Democratic party The indications are however that neither one will go to the convention with the necessary two nominationrA deadlock is likely to result in secondechoice candidates and this is arerbanking on Washtnkt theIing presidential
