HOW TO GET THE MONEY
It costs 130.70 to pay a student's expenses in Bcrea for tbo
winter term of three months. This includes hoard, room rent and
incidental fee. This is a very small sum on the one side and insures
very large returns on tho other. But still the question, on tho part
of many fathors and mothers or boys nnd girls, in, "Where is the
money to come from?"
Hero are a few hints that may bo helpful.
The present market rates for bvef cattle average about lGc per
K)und. Let us suppose that the family can spare a beef, netting,
after butchoring and dressing, 400 or 200 pounds. In either case
tho question is nnswered. In tho one, the expenses of two can be
met, and in the other, one child can be sent away.
But possibly hogs are more plentiful than beeves. And fat
hogs too are bringing a very good price about 11c. per pound.
Two hogs, therefore, netting 1G0 pounds each, will yield $30,20
enough to meet tho winter term bills and with S-l.&O to sparo.
Again, the bills can be met by the sale of cross ties. At the
river or at the railroad they will bring at least 33 l-3c. each, and
an able bodied man can cut, on an average, ten ties a day, and nine
days work will give ono boy or girl the three months in Berea that
may chauge the entire fortunes of tho family.
It might be possible nlso to make the poultry yard pay the bill.
It is a poor hen that can't be sold for 25c. If 123 hens, therefore,
could be marketed, tho money for tbo term bill would be iu hand.
Or, with eggs at 30c. per dozen, 1234 eggs would suffice. But turkeys
bring even a better price, and 25 averaging ten pounds each, at
12 J o. per pound will produce the necessary amount.
Where there are beef cattle, and hogs, and ties, and chickens,
nnd turkeys, thero ought to be a nay, and there is a way. But, after
all; it takes a will to make a way. And those that have the will havo
found, or will find, the way and will enter Beren or somo other good
school at the beginning of the winter term.
TIGHTENING THE LINES ON CRIMINALS
New York City is redeeming herself in the public eje by tho
thorough fashion iu which she has dealt with the slayers of Rosenthal,
tho confessed gambler. Police Lieutenant Chas. Becker was convict
ed a few weeks ago and sentenced to the electric chair for instigating
the murder, while, on the lUtli, the four gunmen, known among their
pals as, "Oip tho blood", "Lefty Louie", "Dago Frank" and "Whit
ney" Lewis received a like sentence at the hands of tho jury after
twenty minutes deliberation.
In Virginia two of the Aliens are awaiting executiou of the death
sentence, while Sidney Allen is set) to need to fifteen yearn imprison,
meut. Audin Kentucky, last Saturday, a crime similar to the Vir
ginia crime, the killing of Mngistrato Beattyat BuruRide, was avenged
bytliH electrocution of the murderer at Eddyville.
If this method of dealing with criminals contiuues for a few
years, murder will become less popular, police officials will learn that
they are expected to be servants of the people and not abetters of the
criminal classes; and viciously inclined citizens, or those suffering
from tho exaggerated Ego, will begiu to respect the courts.
TO PENSION EX-PRESIDENTS
A news telegram from New Yprk, the 21st, announces that Mr.
Carnegie has set aside n large sum which is to be used "Tor the pur
pose of pensioning ex-l'residents, the amount to be allowed each is
said to be $25,000.
Mr. Carnegie's action has stirred up much comment throughout
the country, the conseusus of opinion generally being averse to
tho policy, Congressmen nud others stating that the Government
ought to bo able to take caro of its ex-Presidents if they need help.
It is likely that the agitation will result in bu annuity being fixed
upon retiring Presidents. Thero ure u good many, however, who
think that a man of the abilities usually possessed by a President
should bo able to take care of himself.
