The Sleep That Men, Women
and Children Should Have
To Insure Good Health.
In conversation with one of our lead
ing physicians we believe what he said
to us worth the spaco in The Climax.
In part he said:
"I do not think a person should be
waked at morning, and for the reason
that when a"" man falls asleep he is in the
shop for repairs as the rai road men say.
His frame and all his intricate machin
ery is being overhauled and made ready
for the next day's work. Tne wear of
the previous day is being repaired. Na
ture is' doing that herself. She knows
what the tired frame needs just as she
knows how to make the heart throb and
the blood coursing through the veins.
Then she takes the tired frame, lays it
down on a bed, surrounds it with the re
freshing air of night, covers it with soft
darkness and lets the man rest. Tired
nature's sweet restorer, balmy sleep,
visits him, and as the hours wear by his
energies are renewed, when morning
breaks and the sunlight steals through
the lattioe, he opens his eyes and is
himself again. Or, if he is early to bed
he awakes with the cock's crowing.
Now, who shall go to that man's bed
side an hour before he r-ijens his eyes
and say to nature, 'stand aside and let
him get up; he has had enough sleep.'
Well,' nature will say, 'you can take
him if you will, but I will charge him
with an hour's loss of deep, and I'll col
lect it out of his bones and his nerves
and his hairs and his eyesight. You
can't cheat me. I'll find a property to
"A baby should sleep with its mother.
A child should be sent to bed early, and
be allowed to wake of ils own accord in
he morning. As for school girls, many
a eirl who has a dozen sludies would be
better occupied chasing butterflies or
training flowers or galloping A pony or
dancing. I would prefer to have a daugh-
er healthy, sweet-tempered, sensible
and beautiful, without Latin, algebra
and grammar, than to have one ever so
ar advanced in her humanities with
her health ruined or perhaps lying under
marble urn in the cemetery; and as
for man, I would rather be able to earn
two dollars a day in the vigor and glory
of health than to draw rents from prop
erty for which 1 have exchanged the
blessings of a sound constitution."

A Healthy Sign.
The Philadelphia Public Ledger, the
influential Republican paper in Phila
delphia, repudiates the candidacy of
Boise Penrose for re-election to the Sen
ate, and has decl&red in favor of the
election of Jon. A. Mitchell Palmer,
i he Democratic nominee.
Mr. Palmer is a credit to American
public life, and there ought not to be any
question about his election to the Senate
lie has made his record and achieved
his reputation on the broad stage of the
nation's public life. Every Slate in the
Union is interested in the contest this
able public servant is making for elec

At the last meeting of the Genera
Assembly of Kentucky, I recommended
that a Kentucky Illiteracy Commission
be appointed and authorized to inquire
into and alleviate the condition of the

has inaugurated a Slate campaign, Mrs.
Stewart being the active leader in the
efforts to stamp out illiteracy through
moonlight schools and other methods.
Upon their call for volunteers about
one thousand teachers oifered their ser
vices and are teaching or making ar
rangements to teach at night, and others
are daily offering their services.
The chairman and leader in this great
work has informed me that the Ken
tucky Educational Association, the Ken
tucky Press Association, the Kentucky
Federation of Women's Clubs, and the
Kentucky Society of Colonial Dames are
taking much interest and are perform
ing much valuable service, and that

The aim of the Kentucky Illiteracy
Commission is noble and exalted and of
the greatest benefit, and there is no
subject of more importance or of more
far-reaching influence than the elimina
tion of illiteracy from our btate. We
hould educate all our people, those
under twenty-one years of age, and those
upward of twenty one years of age.
The perpetuity of our free institutions
lepends upon the intelligence and vir-
ue of the people.
There are 203.0SI men and women in
our tale who can not read and write.
md of whose intelligent eiTor along the
ines of education, religion and ge.ieral
development and advancement the State
is deprived, and this constitutes a de
plorable sitnation and presents a great
and urgent need which should be prompt
ly met and relieved.
Instruction should be offered to moth
ers for their own sake and for the sake
of their children and the benefit of the
State; it should be offered tc the fathers
for their own sake and for the sake of
increasing their earning capacity and
promoting home comforts, and for the
ake of a' more intelligent exercise of
the right of suffrage so as to help main

The instruction of all illiterates in the
State will not only give to Kentucky
higher rank, educationally, among the
Slates, but will trive her a new and dis
tinct position as the first Commonwealth
which has ever atiemted to accomplish
such a great and important work.
I call upon all to help in the cause of
education of those under twenty-one
years of age and those upward of twenty
one years of aire, and I appeal to every
public and private teacher, every pro
fessor in our high schools, colleges and
universitie?. all public ollicers, every
representative of the press, every pro
fessional man. every farmer, mechanic
and business man, and every womin
who loves the blessings of education,
and all who desire to promote religion,

progress or improvement i any line, all
who desire to lessen crime, to help in
the great work of teaching adult illiter
ates, both male and female, to read and
to write and spell and encourage them
to seek knowledge and add to their ac
ijuirement by moonlight schools and by
illuminaled school houses where educa
tion is as free as the air we breathe, and
where all may come to edify themselves
and drink of the fountain of the water
of life freely.
In testimony whereof, I have caused
these letters to bo made patent and the
seal of the Commonwealth lo be here

day of September, in the year of our
Lord one thousand nine hundred and
