DOESN'T GET RUN FOR MONEY
Anomalous as it may appear Ken
tucky, which ranks with the tail-end-ers
among the States in education,
spends more of its tax money for
that purpose than probably any of
the other States. Over half of ev
ery dollar collected in taxes in Ken
tucky goes for education, and this
has been going on for many years.
At first 'blush the statement might
not be convincing, but the facts sus
tain it. The State tax rate is 40
cents on the $100 worth of taxable
property, and of every 40 cents col
lected 21 cents goes for educational
purposes. Of the 21 cents the com
mon schools receive 18 cents, Ken
tucky University 1 3-4 cents and
each of the two State Normal
Schools G-8 of a cent each. In, other
words, for every dollar of taxes the
schools receive 52 1-2 cents, of

THREE GOOD RULES
A YOUNG MAN who was determined to
build uri a snug little fortune decided
to learn how others had solved thc same
problems that confronted him.
He found three things were necessary.
First Of course he must learn to earn
money and the more he could earn the
easier his success" would be.
.Second He found that it was very impor
tant to learn to spend his money properly.
It is very easy to "blow in" alia man
Third He found it was no trick to save
money if the firsthand second-rules were
observed. 'Any one who knows how to
earn money and spend wisely will find a
snug bank account easily obtained.
Try these rules for yourself.
The Peoples Bank
It seems now that the murderers
of Lura Parsons, thc Pine Mountain
school teacher, victim of a brutal
crime more than two years ago, may
have to face trial in a court of jus
tice. Last week indictments were
returned in the Harlan circuit court
against Jerry Reed and James Rob
inson, negro convicts who were at
work in that section of the state when
Miss Parsons was murdered, and
John Marcum, of Clay county, a
camp guard at thc time of thc kill
ing. The indictments are tho result of
a secret investigation conducted by
the local authorities, resulting in the
finding of Miss Parsons' pocket-book,
which one of the convicts had sold
to another, after tho camp was clos
ed and thc men taken back to Frank
fort, and of thc blood stained un
derwear of one of tho convicts,
which was found in a hollow tree on
the mountain trail.
It is reported in tho press that one
of these convictcs is "out on parole,"
and it is likely he still will bo out
on parole, if ho reads the papers or
hears of his indictment.
Reports from Frankfort that the
new indictments are the result of an
attempt to "frame" the men accus
ed in order to claim tho reward of
$1,500 also are to be taken into con
sideration, and it may be true that
the hopes of tho people of tho stato
for an early conviction and just pun
ishment of the slayers of Miss Par
sons will again be disappointed.
As Daniel Webster once said,
"Murder will out." That used to
be a great deal truer than it is now
adays, for in recent years this coun
try has had a number of murders
for which no man ever has been ar-
. rested and punished.
We hope, the Harlan grand jury
Is not on a cold trajl this time, as
it was in former trials, growing out
of this abominable murder. Inte

Save a Dime out of Every Dollar
The following notice was posted in a large
business office recently:
"Beginning July I, no employe who does
not save in sound investments at least 10 per
cent of his or her salary each month can hold
a job in our companies. Thc saving must be
accomplished under inspectors and in such
such form as may be approved."
It is certainly a wise thing for everyone to.
endeavor to save at lenst 10 per cent of their
weekly income. The surest way to accom
plish this is to deposit that 10 per cent on
pay day. Save before you spend. Do not
let anything short of absolute need induce
you to interrupt your saving or to subtract
from your bank balance.

"Why Cull Poultry For Egg
What we mean by the word
cull is to pick out or select choice
hens. We have already been
taught that like begets like and
when you once get a flock of poul
try Stnrtca U IS very csscimui
that the culling work is started
early in the game.
In starting in poultry work it
is best to raise only one kind of
poultry and it should be pure
bred. Your flock will look better
nnd the culling for egg produc
tion con be carr cd on much easi
We shou'd watch our flack nnd
when a hen gets lazy and spends
most of her time on thc roost or
drooping around the poultry yard
it is time to cull, as their expenses
are paid by the other hens.
A lot of attention should be
given to the selecticn of male
birds ns your pullets are going
to be in a large measure like the
male birds. In other words ihe
rooster is going to determine to
a great extent the laying quali
ties of your pullets. ,
It is only by right culling that
the color of y"bur flock can be
kept up, for a poor color this year
will mean a very bad color in
your next years chickens. By
selecting hens that measure up
to high standards of egg produc
tion your flock can be kept up to
the standard. Gertrude Caudill

It is true that many contract
severe colds and recover from
them without taking any precau
tion or treatment, and a know
ledge of this fact leads others to
take their chances instead of giv
ing their cold the needed atten
tion. It should be borne in mind
that every cold weakens the vit
ality, makes the system less able
to withstand each succeeding at
tack and naves the way for the
more serious diseases. Can you
afford to take such desperate
chances when Chamberlain's
