According to Krncs F. Hurchard,
the author of a report on the
of barvtcs and strontium in
1908. published by the U. S. Geologic!
Survey in its "Mineral resources"
series, this curtailment of
production in 1M0S was foreseen by
many persons interested in the
tes Industry. There was a largo
overpradudtion in 1907, tho record
voars and after the panic the trade
in bpytc products name practicilly

The total quantity of barytcs reported
as refined by mills hi Ken.

Tennessee, ond Virginia was 2S.415
short tons, valued at $31 S, 090. an
average price per ton at the mills of
$11,19, as compared with 14,59
per ton in 1907.
Reports from practically all the
districts producing barytcs showed
a decidedly discouraging condition
in 190S, especially as to mining.
Krlv Production of Coal.
Probably the earliest mention of
coal in the United States is con
taioed in the journal of Father Hen
cpin, who as early as 1(579 reported
a "cole" mine on Illinois
Itivcr above Fort Grevccoucr, near
the site of the present city of Ottawa.
It is also proable that, outside
of anthracite mining in Pennsylvania
and the operations of the Richmond
Basin in Virginia, Illinois
holds the record for priority of pro-i
duciion, Coal was produoco. in Jac-son
County in 1810 from a point on
Mig Muddy River. A flatboat was
loaded with toal at this place and
shipped to New Orlenns, but the
quantity is not stated. Again, it

The Institute went into organization
yesterday at at 10 30 o'clock
with a full representation from all
portions of tho county, and complimentary
to the Institute and characteristic
of "Old Kentucky" the great
number of tho most beautiful type of
voting womanhood was the crowning
feature. Altogether the body was
one of tho most intcligent it has
been our pleasure to sec anywhere.
Unfortunately for us this body convened
on the day we go to press,
precluding the possibility of giving
the Institute news in this issue.
But when Friday rolls around wo
hope to be able to give to the public
a report from one of the best and
rn ost profitable Institutes ever held
in the county. Io our Friday issuo
we will publish a column article on
"Women as Teachers." We do this
in protection to the women, young
and middle aged, who, in many instances
arc bearing men's burdens nt
a salary far below what they deserve.
God bless the women of our great old

the Last Few Years
Tho llccord thinks there is a ureal
opportunity for tho Tobacco
Tho f?ood to come has boon
clearly proven tlurmi tho past few
years. Of course, some mistakes
havo been made, and soino who have
sever beco iti real friends havo taken
advantage of this fact to broak up
tho Association, hut tho tobacco
growers of the Mack Patch needs no
further proof of the ood it has done
tho produoinn masaos of this territory.
There ar differences to settle,
but this should bo done alonj: tho
lino of tho most ;ood toOio roJtcst
number, aud no man should permit
prejudice or narrowness to guide his
action in the matter. The dostruc
Hon of tho Association at this time
mean worse conditions thin existed
when he Association was organized,
land we know the people want no
mrt o tint So if troubles arc to
be settled, let them bo settled fairly
for tire pood of all. No bittornoss or
spirit of animosity should be in
dulped in when one farmer is dealing
with another farmer. This fiirht is
a common fipht. What is iood for
one is od fir all, and eool sober
judgment should be exercised in the
tctl.cmenl of wrongs that may exist.
Wo know the farmers of this county
want to do right and what is best for
them and their neighbors, Like other
people, they may lose their heads
at times aud nay things that should
have been left unsaid, but in tho end
ill things will be righted, and what
is good for all is sure to prevail in
the cud. We aro sure our farmer
frjeods see this clearly as any one
else, and that the Association will be
placed on a true business basis, and
that great and lasting good will re-
lull from it in the years to come.

of your little one, feeling that while

It seems cruel that the bud should

to unfold its blossom. Mut in
nature, fruits fall aad so does blossoms

in tho taking from our arms of this
