A Woman In
Address Before Woman's Club by
"rrfr. It seems llko presumption for un
unmarried woman to talk to mothers
about "Training Olrls." llut 1 havo
been teaching for twcnty-flvo years
now and havo had both boys and
girls under my care. I am Interested
in both, but my sympathies are large
ly with tho girls. No boy ever wish
es ho were a girl, but a grcnl many
gtrla wish they were boys.
There must bo a reason for this. U
Is largely duo to tho greater free
dom and largor opportunities open to
boys. Ilut this Is passing. Tho 20th
Century Is woman's century. She Is
realizing her needs as never before,
and she is domandlng the privilege
of greater equality In all the social
rclatljjs of llfo with her brothers and
husband. 8hs no lenger despises and
kicks out tho unfortunate girl who
has mado a mistake but sho has dis
covered that this woman Is a victim
of social conditions that Ignorance
and low wages and a wry human
hunger for pleasure and variety bate
led this girl astray. Tho woman of
today Is developing a civic and social
conseJcpce which wll mean bettor
living conditions for all women In h r
community. She Is her sister's keep

tho girls of their nclghtwrs more
Bringing up a girl a generation
ago when there wero so many Indus-,
tries In the homo was far slmpbr
than It Is today. Ilut before I talk
about the training of girls I want you
to havo In mind a picture of an Ideal
girl. When a dress maker cuts out
dress, sho pictures to herself thu
completed garment and to has a
stands! d as well as a pattern, and
1 want to present to you first the
picture that ! In my mind.

TO KILL OR
A year ago tho presiding Judgo in Payette County slated to
the grand jury that there bail bevti more murders in Fayette County,
with a population of 47,716, in tho year 1011 than in the city of
Loudon, England, with a population of 7262,003. Nor has the murdrr
habit stopped for it eems to bo a habit for nieu who have a grievance
against or a quarrel with another to kill hi in as he would n mad dog
or a wild boast. No thought of tho wife or of tho helpless children
who would Ira orphans for life in powerful enough to deter him from
thin insane and hellish impulso to kill. Unfortunately through cus.
toniR, almost criminal in the possibility of evil consequences, tho
weapons for human butchery are not far distant. Usually a gun larger
or smaller In at lmiid and speedily it belches out tiro lit in a hell of hu
man passion and the unhappy victim, frequently oil Lis guard and
unaware of hla peril, fnlls bleeding like an ox under the butcher's
knife, and lies weltering in his gore. Such n spectacle ss seen on
the streets of n large and prosperous county scat, the home of schools
of learning aud of cliurcliefl, a few months Ago.
Ih there such a thing as a mania (or killing, like kleptomania, tho
mania for stealing r How long can n man retain his sanity, who day
after day allows himself to brood over wrongs, real or fancied, until
the mind becomes possessed of, and governed by this singlo thought ?
A distinguished physician, specialist in mental diseases, experienced
lu the treatment of the insane to the question: " When is a man in
ftano"? replied, " A uiau is insane when be putB himself under the
sway of n single idea." Right here is where, in many a family, mur
der could bo prevented, by a determined effort to divert tho mind and
turn away tho thought from this ono topic of injury. Too often, how
ever, this course is not pursued, but rather is encouraged by constant
reference to thu matter, aud a continued discussion ol the wrong.
Tho state of Kentucky is an aggregation of communities, nny one
of which would resent very strongly the intimation that they wero
not civiltzctl. But is it not one of the marks of civilization to abide
by the laws and institutions established by tho community for
the furtherance of tho community welfaru? Tho state of Ken
tucky lias an elaborate apparatus in its judges, law courts, sheriffs,
and under sheriffs, ita local magistrates, for the maintenance of law
and order, for the punishment of wrong-doing, the correcting of
abuses, and the preservation of life and property. The murderer dis
regards all thin, virtually he acts as though it was not in existence,
and although he himself by his vote helped to elect these officers aud
to establish these institutions, he acts as though be were in a region
without law or law officers. Eveu In the heart of uncivilized Africa
his action would be condemned, auifhe would be punished for his of
fense. He becomes the foe of society, aud of the institutions of civ
What cau bo done to bring about better conditions? In the first
place, theie must be a better, a wiser aud a saner public neutiment.
Wo must stop looking uiion the murderer as a "good fellow,"" well
meaning," aud " not a bad man." He is not a good fellow, who thus
takes the law into bis hands, nor is he well-meaning, but he is a thor
oughly bad man, dangerous to the community. In spite of his oc
casional gcod impulses and nffection for his own (a tiger has this) it
is dangerous for him to be at large. Ho should be kept in confine
ment like a dangerous beast.
In the second place, the community concerned must recognize
the great gravity aud need of the moment, and cease to feed a morbid
impulso that speedily may become dangerous by protracted discussion
of aud brooding over wrong. A heliUhier tone must bo initiate! into
the family conversation, into the family lifo. We must learn to leave
tbeaveiigiugof our wrongs with our God and with the commonwealth.
"Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord " The great remedy,
the uufailiug remedy, tho one sure prevention is tho spirit of Christ
in the heart.
The teachers can help to create a new sentiment. They can
teach the greatness of forgiveness and the horror of murder, aud tho
goodness of neighborly love. 1J.
HOUSE CLEANING, TOWN CLEANING
In one of his very interesting essays, Deujamiu Franklin, of

have for house cleaning and the resulting discomfort to the various

visible activity on the pnit of the men f Are there uot various streets
in town that would be much more de-wimble for residences if trees
were tobe plant' il along tho highway mid about the homes? It has
been clearly shown by real estate men that streets properly shaded
and homes with trees nboiit them brought nn iucreaso of rental far

town cleauiug be supplemented by tree and shrub planting?
There is .t rumor, fouuded on a slatenieut that appears iu other
