Lightning And Chnrchei.
Some unbelievers, who have
lost their religious faith, appear
sometimes to marvel at the fact
that nine-tenths of the buildings
struck by lightning are churches.
According to Prof. Ogg, teacher
jof physics at the Manual Train-
j ing High School, this
i non is due to the comparatively

The championship of the Kentucky
Ansociation was won by debating
team of the State University of
Kentucky when the Transylvania
University team was defeated
by a vote of four to one in the
debate Transylvania, Friday
night, on the subject "Resolved
that there should be a permanent
tariff board with power to collect
and publish information on the
tariff and to originate all bills for
tariff laws, constitutionally granted."
The team which was composed
of J. I. Miller of Lexington: Fred
T. Shultz, of Narrows, Ky., and
N. Gray Rochester of Marion,
Ky., was far superior to the opposing
team in all points of debating,
and notwithstanding the
fact that it had the affirmative
side of the Bubject. and, therefore,
had to bear the burden of
the proof, it had a long lead on
the Transylvania debaters at all
stages of the debate. The members
of the Transylvania team
were John Christopher, of Hat-ton,
Wis. Richard Heilbron, of
San Diego, Cal., and V. F.
O'Connell of Fairland, Texas.
In the first speech Mr. Miller
showed in a general v ay the
great and most apparent evils
connected with the present system
of legislation and pointed
out the ways in which the system
under discussion would remedy
these evils. He showed
that the Ways and Means Committee,
which now makes the
tariff investigation and framea
the tariff bill, could not. with its
limited facilities, frame tariff
bills that were to the best interest
of the people even if it were
not dominated by party politics,
as he also showed that it is. He
also showed the manner in which
the proposed board would be able
by putting all of its time on tar-if
questions, and by publishing
tho information that it collected
to educate the people, concerning
tariff questions, and by originating
the bills to get the correct
tariff measures before the legislature.
The first speaker on the negative
read a long speech, in which
he took a great deal of time explaining
that the negative did
not have anything to prove, but
only had to show wherein the
theory of the affirmative was
lacking. He failed to do that.
Mr. Shultz, the tecond speaker
on the affirmative took up in
detail the working of the proposed
board, and the details of how
tariff bills are now handled in
the legislature. He dwelt upon
the present evils of log-rolling,
party domination, financial influences,
and corporation control.
He alio contrasted the American
tariff legislation with that of
Germany, where a permanant
board is in charge of legislation.
The third speech of the affirmative,
by Mr. Rochester, took up
in detail the workings of the proposed
board and showed in what
manner it would eliminate the
the ovil legislation that was mentioned
by his colleagues. The
summarising portion of Mr.
Rochester's made the whole argument
of the affirmative into
one complete and systematic
The third speech of the negative
dealt only with generalities
and points which it was claimed
