To Bo Eliminated From Evory County
In Kentucky Says Mrs. Cora
' Frankfort, Ky., Any. 21. Mm. Cora
Wilson Stowart, president of tlio Ken
tucky Illiteracy eoniini.sslon, has pent
rtn tlm fnllnwIiiLr ciill for volunteers:
r "While Kiiroiioan countries nro can
' lug for volunteers in n conllft of war,
Kentucky is culling for volunteers In a
conflict of peace, a conflict which, If
ovetually ami successfully waged
will insure to the- people of this great
Commonwealth a new era of peace,
happiness and prosperity. Kentucky
lias ono blight and blot upon her rec
ord at this timo, and that is tho high
1-crcontago of illiteracy among her
adult population. Iteports show 208,
0S4 of her jnen and women can not
read or write, and are thus deprived
of the privilego of citizenship and pre
vented from enjoying tho richest bless
ings of lifo. These men and women
aro mostly native whites. Many of
them arc peoplo of superior tntelect
and some of them, nt least, aro am
bitious. "Tor the sake of this great army of
benighted men and women, for the
sake of their children and their grand
children, for the sako of the cause of
Education, for tho sake of a better and
inoro intollij.('nt citizenship, for the
sako of a more creditable record when
the census of 1D20 is taken, for the
sako of the Commonwealth, which
when crime breaks out or epidemics
prevail or dark days come, looks upon
its illiteracy as the cause and laments,
'My people are confounded for want of
knowledge.' We appeal to every pub
lie and private school teacher to en
list a moonlight school on tho evening
of September 7, and to every citien
to seek' out and instruct somo one or
more 'illiterates. 'One thousand moon
light schools, 50,000 adults ' enrolled,
10,000 illiterates taught,' is our aim foi
' 1!14. Let all true and patriotic Ken
tuckinns, men, women and children,
jrlch and poor, oung and old, white and
olored, enlist for orvico in Kvn-
ucky's conflict against illiteracy."

Supposing n grcnt battlo is fought nil

uniformly successful; that Is to say
tho German army is worsted to such ait
extent that it cannot again take tho of

visers, seeing that tho game ornggrcs
slon has shot its bolt, endeavor to conn

Franco must havo tho lino of thr
Rhino ns her new frontier. She will
take nothing else as tho return foi
sacrifices of tho past ' 10 years. Hoi
gium must havo rectified tho violntioi
of her frontlor and also compensatloi
for tho immense damago inflicted on
hor population. England, if wo can
not destroy it by fighting, must insis.
upon the surrender of tho German Ileot
for, without tho destruction or stir
render of it, any peaco wulrt be a hoi
Probably both England nnd France
woud insist upon war indemnity, and,
nt the other end of Europe, Russia wil
also demand territory nnd guarantee'
for tho future. Theso must be the in In
imum terms fortlie allies. They m.vi
seem severe, but they aro essential tt
tho maintenance of peace in tho future
Now, does any one for n moment sup
pose Kaiser Wilhelm will accept tl
conditions just because the German of
fenso has broken down 7 It would mcai
the loss of his remaining prestige nn
probably of his throne ns well. Wlia
will happen then? We shall bo calle
upon to assume the offensive agains'
Germany, which will Immeasurabl;
add to the difficulties of the militnr;
In such a case Lord Kitchener's jdai
to raise 500,000 men is of vital im
rortunee. Franco has already mobilize!
to almost her last man, and tho brunt
of the fighting is about to fall on the
French army. Their losses will br
enormous, but they must be replaced
ar.d they can only be obtained by build
ing up behind the French army i
British and Belgium force jinwerfu
enough in numbers and sufficiently wel
trained to strike, a decisive blow. 1
may be siv months or a year from iiom
it may bo even sooner, when the Ger
man defenses are weakening under th
continuous strain of tho French ol
fensive, anil when the latter are to
bxhausted to reap the full harvest o
tho sacrifices thev have made.

MAKE AN ICE HOUSE,
TO STORE YOUR SNOW
Sections Whoro Llttlo Ico Forma Dur
ing tho "Winter May Sayo tho Snow
to Ubo In Flaco of Ico tho Fol
lowing Summer. k
Washington, D. C, Aug. 21. Farmers
in sections whoro llttlo ico is formed
but whoro'thero la plenty of snow may
storo tho snow in ico. houses nnd use
It In tho plnco of ice tho following sum
mer, according to field ngents of tho IT
S. Department of Agriculture This
plan which hns given excellent results
in practice, is now being recommended
to farmers especially in A'irginia, West
Virginia, Kentucky nnd Maryland
Summer is the timo in which the house
should bo mnde for storing the next
winter's snowfalls. '
Tho sndw houses that have been in
successful uso in Virginia and Mnry
land, consist of a jilt which Is shelterei,
by a gablo roof four feet from thr
ground. Tho dirt dug from tho pit U
piled around tho board sides of tin
house and graded oil' to drain tho watei
from tho house. The pit unclcrgrouiu
is not less than 10 feet in diameter am'
depth. Tho bottom is from two to sb
feet smaller than tho top to prevent ai.
spaco around the snow ns it settles. Tin
pit Is lined with planks two indie
thick. The liouso is well covered to
keep out heat. Trees shading tho roof
help to keep tho liouso cool.
How To Storo tho Snow.
Snow should bo put in before it I
wet. Probably tho best time is ns sooi
as it lias settled sufficiently to pack
well. It can bo collected from nn
level place that is clean, such as a ha
Hold. If tho snow is deep it may In
J shoveled directly into a wagon. If thin
it can -bo drawii into rows by means ol
a plank drag similar to the "KItij.
hoad Drag," then hauled by wagon
'o the snow pit. IT MUST BE WEL!
PACKED by tramping with tho fee
mil tamping with n block of wood
"SXOW WELL PACKED will last as
long as ice," say thoso who have trlei
the experiment successfully. They als
advise that after the snow has settlei
n few days tho spaces between tin
snow and walls should be filled will
n oro snow nnd filled as high as pus
When tho outside temperature is be
low fl2 degrees, the doors of tho ici
liouso should be kept open. When thi
temperature rises above freezing, the
should be closed. Tlio toji of the snov
should be covered with sacks first, thci
with 2 or II feet of sawdust or straw
As fast as the snow melts around th
sides, tho space shoud be packed witl
straw to prevent air current.
When snow is wanted, remove th
covering and shovel out the quantity
desired, always remembering to re
cover tho exposed plnco . This snow rii
he used for cooling milk, dairy product
or meat, for freezing ice ereunt it n
many other purposes.
