Owsley county is ouo of tho oastorn
counties of Kentucky and was form
ed in 1813, being named for Gov.
William Owsley. It is well watered
and drained by the South Fork of tho
Kentucky river, which flows through
tho center of the county. Many trib
t alios flowing into it from the oast
and west afford perfect drainage and
good wator supply. Tho soil is good,
rich, and yields abundant crops. It
is underlaid with coal of the best
quality, both bituminous and cannel
being found. About -10 foot below
the surfaco are veins 8 to 10 foet
thick, also gray and blue limestone
suitable for building purpose. We
lack proper transportation facilities
for all of these and have only the
coming of the railroad to look for
ward to in order to bring Owsley up
in tho front rank.

lu every wide-nwoko person there
is n desire to do something. It is nn
evidenco of n healthy growth nnd wo
do not put much faith in a jierson
who has not such n desire. If a man
has no inclination to work, no say he
is lay, and do not count him us be
ing worth very much. Itut the limn
who is anxious to do something is the
man wo are interested in. lint don't
misitiidcrstnud me. It makes u grent
difference what n man wants to do.
Ho may not in two wins doing for'
others, or doing for himself. Wo nil j
know which mo admire. Wo know
which ouo makes the pleasant neigh
Uir and tho clover friend.
lr those who do everything for
themselves, nud to got every Missible
advantage, the "getters" wo might al
most call them, thorn is no goxl ml
vice except to change their course of
life. Their only danger in continu
ally seeking their own good is that
they will sometime bo found out nud
then overyono will know how selfish
nnd mean they are. Wo can say on
ly this to them, go nhoad if you will, '
but do not got caught at it.
Xow tho other class, those who try
to do what will Iteneiit other people
may le called "givers", and we know
what pleasant people they aro to have
about us. Thoy aro always helpful
and useful to us, until wo sometimes
wonder how we could do without
them. To such Hophi we gladly
give praise that is due, and wo always
have a kind fooling for thorn. For
snob peoplo u few suggestions may
not be amiss. Iu the first place, it is
tho duty of every person to bo a use
ful member of society. It is not the
thing to be merely good, but to Imi
good for something. There is always
much that needs to be done in this
busy old world, and no one should
think that his mite of laltor will not
lw needed. It is needed uud will not
bo lost. Possibly you may tint get
all the credit for it that you deserve,
but tho really modest, useful Mion
is generally too busy to worry much
about lack of appreciation. Aud this
is also true, tho modest, helpful, skil
ful jierson, who is always ready, and
who never finds fault, can not always
be forgotten or neglected. Credit
due you will come sooner or later.
But what if it does not como at once,
"to bo misunderstood is part of tho
martyrdom of life."
.So do your best, take what comes
of ih and whan wo have once acccjm
plishwl something wo have within us
tho realization that wo have been of
somo service to humanity and somo
use in tho world. We should not be
human vegetables but active jtersons.

A father whoso son was nhout to
start to col logo was asked what his
boy was to study. Ho said, "I do
not know yet, but I am going to visit
the school, and find out tho teacher
with Win Jlitrnt eharttvter, nud my son
shall study what ho teaches."
This father knew the secret of in
llucucc. It is the yrtut thing for our
hots and girls to have the compan
ionship yf a manly man, a womanly
uuiiinn, and that under the inllueiice
of such a friendship they burn wlf
eontiol, letiru tho value of energy and
gentleness- that too mro combina
tion. Parents and trustees do renlio in a
large iniHisuro the importance of hav
ing as toucher u tiuiti or woman whoso
example the children may safely fol
low, but sometimes other considera
tions warp our judgment and mo for
got to ask, "Is this the very litt
teacher that wo can get!"
I want to say an earnest word to the
teachers this week. 1 have Iteon at
tending Institutes and have heard
this remnrk many times, "Oh that
does very well to talk nltout, but isn't
practical iu our schools." And ono
teacher suid to mo "Very few touchers
change their work any Itocaiueof hav
ing leen to Institute."
Xow, fellow teachers, I know very
well that there are often method giv
en that cannot be used iu the country
school but ovrry groat principle
must have some application to your
tenrk, and it is your task to adapt,
not mltpl methods. Are wo sincere
if in our teachers' incotiugs wo agree
that whipping is ivry seldom neces
sary in our govurnment and then
whip about half of our pupils tho
first week lx-cuuae thoy have 'wliis
x-rod"or"did not have their lessons."
The chances are ten to one thnt trr
were at fault iu the first placo, not
the pupils. If little peoplo aro not
kept ti'jiy at intrrrttiiw uvrk, can
you blame them fur whisMringT If
you nssign lessons by the page, with
out considering their adaptation to

The region from which l!erca stu-

fields and forests, mines and

aro to furnish iu the future u
and a mote comfortable living than in
tho past for a ured population. What
' so fitting as that tho hoys who are
growing up to tilt those fields, to uiau
ag!' the forowls anil harvest tho tun
Iter, or to develop the mines and inan
llfuclorii'S, should lie specially educat
ed fur their workl And by islucation
mo misiti not only tho pmct.c.tl train
tug tccoited iu tho doing of tho work,
but education in tho sciences which
relate to these industries. Who so
much as tho farmer needs to know
how soils are formed, what aro tho el
ements of food uccdtsl by tho plants
that he cultivates anil the conditions
under which thoy thrive best? Who
needs to know tho laws of animal life
and growth more than the man whoo
pnwMrity deHnds liimn the success
of tho Hocks slid herds he has around
him! .Many a farmer secures a part
of his income from the forest lands ho
owns, Xow If by knowledge of tho
I principles of forestry ho cau secure a
greater income from the satuo source
and still leave the forest lands in con
dition to yield a rereuue to his chil
dren, is ii not worth while to study
itlioo things T
Teachers have their normal course,

Does not the science aud skill of to
day reveal things that will help tho
liou-o wifo, tiK)ii whoso laltflrs tho
health and comfort of tho whole fam
ily doRnd, to do her work? It is
with such thoughts that the faculty
of Boron College, has provided a two
years course in agricultural nud do
mestic science to follow tho coin pie
tion of tho grammar school work, and
it is hoped that with the opening of
tho fall ti-nu a good many young peo
plo Mill enroll themselves for this
work. The courxe is pantllel to tho
work in tho acadeiuv and includes
some of tho same studies nud vet it is

Tho fact that at this time Bore can
have tho advantage of th ripe exper-
' ioneo of Dr. Fairchild, who for nearly
a score of yearn ha riven his lest

tion of tha farmers' boys aud girls in
Kansas iusuros that this new cotirso
ihns boon framed with the best judg
ment that this country affords. The
courses aru as practical as can lx

general principles to tho particular
conditions of his farm aud locality.
