The trustees of the institution,

Advice to Alpine Climbers.
In the earlier part of the nineteenth
century many even of those who had
been up Alpine peaks themselves de
nounced the sport. Regarding the as
cent of Mount Blanc, Murray's Hand
book in the year 1838 stated that "all
who have succeeded have advised no
one to attempt it," and nearly 20
years later noted the "remarkable
fact that a large proportion of those
who have made this ascent have been
persons of unsound mind."

kind of fungus, which quickly spreads,
and is very difficult to remove. To
remove it from flannel etfcer is best to

From Boston comes the story of a
touching phonograph romance. The

"A THOROUGHBRED TRAMP."
"A Thoroughbred Tramp," which
will be the attraction at the Paris
Grand on November 20 is a powerful
comedy drama telling a beautiful atory
combining humor, pathos, heart inter
est and thrilling realism. There is- a
strong vein of comedy a laughable
nature tnat more than pleases.
The story, it is said, is written
around incidents of a celebrated case
ot New York life, well written and
not unreal or stagey. It is one of the
best comedy dramas of today written
by playright who has given the public
some of the very best dramas of recent
years. "A Thoroughbrea Tramp" will
be presented by a competent company
with the eminent emotional actress,
Miss Josephine Wowsey, in the leading
feminine role, and supported by such
people as Louise Wren, of Jekyl! and
Hyde" fame, Hal Williams Frank
Carman and others in the cast.
The quiet home is a fitting atmos
phere. One feels at home by the fire

and wife; shudders at tha entrance of
the villain whose only purpose is to
destroy the reputation of the hubsand
in order to get possession of another's
wife. One cannot help but admire the
fidelity of the little waif to the sorrow

Newamn has decided to take steDs to
check the progress of the gvDsy moth
among the fruit trees of Kentucky
Some days ago the United States Gov
ernment notified Prof. Garman, at
Lexington, that some steps should be
taken . by the Kentucky authorities to
eradicate the pest, so as to prevent a
quarantine against Kentucky by other
States. Prof. Garman. having no
funds at his command in his depart
ment, notified the Governor, who, in
turn, referred the matter to tne Com
missioner of Agriculture. Mr. New
man says he has no funds a his com
mand for this specific purpose, but he
proposes to use some of the money at
his command for other denartments
to aid in the stamping out of the gyp
sy moth, if it is possible to do so.
The spreading of hemp in Bourbon
countv has already begun prenaratory
to rotting and -breaking it out. Ac
cording to reports Bourbon county will
have the largest crop in a decade, a
condition due mainly to the successful
tests made by the O'Neal hemp
breaking machine, invented by Frank
O'Neal, Jr., of this city. After seven
years of arduous labor he has perfec
ted the machine, which gives promise
of reviving the hemp growing industry
in this section of Kentucky, where the
majority of the hemp of the State is
grown, and which, owing to the inabil
ity of the growers to; secure labor to
break out the product and prepare it
for market, has been practically aban
doned. Tests made with the machine
last fall on the farm of J. N. Camden,
in Woodford county, revealed the fact
that, in addition to turning out hemp
fibre, rfee from hurds. it will break
hemp either green or rotted, and will
save the farmers a handsome sum on
each crcp.on accounfcof handling hemp
and preparing it for market that
