Something Must Be Done.
Boys and girls from all over our
are leaving their country homes
as as they are old enough and
going to the city. * What is the cause
and what is the remedy? There must
be a cause for every effect. My
opinion is that good roads and good
schools will go far toward correcting
this evil. We may boast of oar green
fields, oar beautiful forests, our gol-
den grain, our feathered songsters
and our h

tional advantages which have never

If we would provide our boys and
with these advantages they
^fc iooaid stay on the farm and at the
same time acquire the education and
culture that their city cousins do and
"lit the same time be far removed
from the temptations and vices that
are always to be found in a large city.
Our children would develop brain and
brawn that would fit them not only
to farm but for the highest positions

Without good school buildings,
plenty of teachers, book of reference

'It ought to be. Our city cousins have
good school buildings well equipped,
a good faculty and beautiful grounds,
while we are content to do just any
way. Oar teachers may be among
the best but they have no opportunity.
It Is alright for our city to incorpor-
ate for school purposes, vote taxes
and bonds for the education of their
children, bat when we talk of these
things in the rural districts we rise up
a* one man and denounce such meas-
ures in no unmistakable terms. It Is
alright for the city to improve her

“A man rich only for himself has
a life as barren and cheerless as that
of a serpent set to guard a buried
treasure. I am saddened when our
success as a nation is measured by
the number of acres under tillage or
the bushels of wheat exported; for
£he real value of a country must be
weighed in scales more delicate than
the bailee of trade. The garners of

all climes still fetch honey from the
tiny garden‘plot of Theocritus.”

Two Men in Deadly Combat.
Rocketsville, Ky., May 4 —At this
place, in Breathitt county, the country
store of Ed Callahan was the scene
this morning of awful carnage. Cal-
lahan was stabbed in several places,
and his brother-in-law, John Spicer,
was shot dead, their blood mingling
where they engaged in deadly com-
bat. Four months ago Judge Jim
Hargis was slain in his own store at
JacksoD by his sou, Beach, being shot
several times and dying almost before
he could make a statement.
Callahan and Hargis were the lea-
ders of the Hargis J,faction in the
Hargis-Cockrill fend, and in the courts
juries trying damage suits filed against
them by the heirs of men killed in the
feud said they were guilty, and juries
trying them for killing James B. Mar-
cum. Dr. Cox and Jim Cockrill failing
to agree or dismissing them. They
were wealthy and employed the best
lawyers. Just as they appeared to be
free from the entanglements caused
by the feud, Fate took a hand.
Many believe it is only the answer
to the prayers of Marcum’s widow,
who, over the body of her husband,
while lying where the bullets of his
assailants bad left him, in the door-
way of the court house, at noon, on a
pretty May day six years ago,
said: “I pray that God or man may
avenge the death of my husband, and
I will spend everything I possess in
this world to run down his slayers.”
They say she did not have in mind
then Cnrtis Jett and Tom White, the
men who have actually been sent to
the penitentiary for the killing, but
she was thinking of Jim Hargis and
Ed Callahanr whom she knew were
the only enemies of her husband.
Callahan is weak from loss of blood
and may not live through the night.
Seeing his father and nncle engaged
in a fight, Wilson Callahan secured a
revolver and shot Spicer through the
heart, killing him instantly.

Train Robbed of $10,000.
Columbus, O., May 1.—The Saint

today. The crew confirmed the story
of the holdup. One of the bandits es-
caped with four sealed bags of mail,

Two Nurses for Cleveland.
Lakewood, N. J., May 4.—Mrs.
Grover Cleveland, whose husband,
the former President, has been lying
ill at the Lakewood Hotel here for
six weeks, refuses to make any
statement today regarding his con-
The only thing that could be learn-
ed about the former President’s con-
dition of a definite nature was secured
from an employe of the hotel, who
stated that while in Mr. Cleveland’s
room yesterday the invalid was seen
to be sitting up in a chair next to a
window reading a newspaper.
Dr. Joseph T. Bryant, who has
been attending Mr. Cleveland, re-
mained here all day and npon this
fact may be based the assertion that
Mr. Cleveland is not so well, for at no
time since bis illness has Dr. Bryant
visited him longer than over night.
There are now two nurses at his bed-
side, the second one having been
engaged this week.
Colorado Cow Breaks Record,
Denver, Colo., April 29.—Financial
Countess, a Jersey cow, owned by C.
E. Parfel, of Golden, Colo., is making
a new record. She already has sur-
passed the present world’s record,
held by Olive Dnnn, owned by A. F.
Pierce, Winchester, N. H., for 729
pounds of batter in a year, having pro-
duced 792 pounds in ten months.
The world’s record for all breeds of
cows is held by Panlene, a Holstein,
with 34.32 pounds of batter and 2,954
pounds of milk in thirty days.
Parfel hopes to beat this with Finan-
cial Countess in another year’s test,
but she has not equaled it this year.

is average paint worth a gallon pat-

Mrs. S. Joyce, 180 Sullivan St.,

is a grand good medicine, and I
heartily recommend it.”
There are many things needed in
every commnnity, but every com-
munity needs the oganization of a
new club—a club to promote old
fashioned honesty. Everyone who
has passed his three-score and ten
can recall the time when a man
would be as true to his promise as to
his bond. Looks and keys were al-
most worthless incumbrances. Alas!
those days and conditions are no
more. They should be revived; men
should be made to feel that ill gotten
gains brings neither honor or position
The absence of this sensitiveness to
acts of dishonor, makes it possible for
for a man to acquire wealth by notor-
iously dishonest methods and then
pose as the saintliest man in a .com-
munity. These evils may be over
come by the formation of clubs de-
voted to the culture of higher stand-
ards of honesty. The teaching should
begin at the fireside and in the
schoolroom, but it can be safely stated
that false ideals are oftener taught in
schools than correct ones. In proof
of this statement we need only to
point to conditions. Won’t some of
our good men, and women too, for
this club needs two to handle it,
take hold of this proposition and let
