"Women of the Democracy at Washington,"

Kentucky never fails to give as a
dowry to its boob tfnd daughters.
W,heo Mrs. James was jast six
-years old ner lather, woo was a
promt nent Methodist ninister, wa
called to another town. Mr. James,
who at that time, had no idea that
ono day ho would be a power for his
party in the national legislature,
hardly knew the mite of a little girl
who was aftcrwaeds to be his wife.
His sister and the elder sister of
little Ruth Thomas were close friends.
So when after many years had gone
by Buth Thomas returned to live at
Marion, her former home, her sister
renewed her friendship with the
James family one day in a railroad
station when Mr. James wis about to
leave town on a political mission.
The older Miss Thomas presented
Mr. Jauics to her younger sister
and the first seeds of a friendship
which was to lead to a more serious
affection were sown. Mrs. James
received the greater part of her education
at the West Kentucky College
She is full of life, talks with
animation, has fine features
and a keen sence of humor. She is
exceedingly fond of reading and,
like all other women, of her hub-band's
party politics, is well informed
on all subjects of importance,
whether political or otherwise. Mrs.
James joined Mr. Jarues in Washington

Congrcs6rdjourned and after visiting
New York aid Atlantic City,
will return to their home in Marion
about the first week in September.

WOMEN AS TEACHERS AND

Men are Useful as Teachers, to be
True, but Women, all Things
Considered Accomplish More
Every year the percentage of female
teachers employed in the com
mon schools in Daviess county in
creases while the perccatano of males
correspondingly declines. What i
true in Daviess is true in every county
in Kentucky what is true in
Kentucky is true in every state in
the union. Various causes arc assigned
for this change in the ratio
of teachers as regards, sox. Some
contend that the salaries paid teachers
are so low that they have failed
to attract the mer. who qualified '
themselves for the teacher's vocation,
and they have nought other pursuits
in which the returns for their J
ces are more remunerative. This is
no doubt true in many instances, be.,
cause the teachers of Kentucky have
bcon a poorly paid class. The mas
with education sufficient to teach in
the schools has accomlisbcd enough
to better his financial condition in
other fields, therefore he abandoned
school work and left the training of
the children of the country to the

states have even made her eligNle to

states she is allowed to serve on the
hoard of education aad county
boards of examiners.
Kecently Mrs. Klla F. Young,
aged G2, an experienoed teacher,

read on the subject of woman's great
value in the education of children of
the land was printed in the Memphis
Commercial Appeal, The following
are paracraphs from the editorial
Why shouldn't a woman be superintendent
of schools? Why shouldn't
a woman be on the board of
Nine-tenths of the public school
teachers in Memphis are women.
Nine-tenths of the training the child
rets in the home is from the mother.
The school would merely be the compliment
of tho home.
Men are uscfnl a teahcr, to be
true, but women, all things considered,
accompl sh more than men do.
In some cities thore is a disposition
to prevent married women firom
teaching in the schools.
A married woman who has reared
half a dozen children is better fitted
as a teacher than if Bhe had 110 children.
