The Southern Educational Aseo

cbmmunities where leagues exist
Mrs. Weaver is an enthusiast in her
work for school improvement and
most of her time is devoted to visit
ing the country schools in the State
She is not laboring for pay but- her
aim is to secure a more efficient
work on the part of teachers and
elevating the Kentucky "schools to
a higher plane. As an evidence of
her noble humanitarianism, she
traveled and lectured over Kentucky
for uearly four years without salary,
receiving only her traveling expen
ses. Miss Jennie West, the County
Superintendent, is arranging to at
tend the conference and would be
pleased for as many of the county
teachers to attend as possible. She
will carry two large trunks ot ar
ticles made by the boys and girls of
the-Schools in different parts of "the
county., We have, seen many of
these articles, and it is hard to con
ceive that children can accomplish
what was on exhibition at the coun
ty fair at Kelly a'.week ago. Among
Ihe articles shown at the fair were
whiak broom holders, chairs, a step
ladder, a lawn swine, losr cabins, a
stockade port, plows, a large num

The Rex people have been the
busiest in town for several days
getting ready for the opening- cf
their place of amusement., The Rex
Theatre. 1 o-night the doors will be
thrown open to the public and the
bill of moving pictured attractions
can notfail to draw a crowded house.
The first part on- the reel will be
"the Battle Between Two Palms."
The second is a three-reel presents
tion of a battle between the Turks
and the Balkans.
These photos were taken while the
battle was raging, and are. not draw
ings by an imaginative artist. With
all the horrors of a fierce battle just
enough romance has been injected
to lend zest-and anticipation to the
completed , work of the genius of
those who have so wellj succeeded in
giving" to the people what is going
pn in the East;. Two other reels-will
be used tonight, but it was! not fully
determined byjthe managers yester
day morning-whdt they would be.

see for yourself we just can't tell
you how beautiful and bright every
thing js;: -
The place , will be decorated., and
