Presbyterian leadership was well
represented at the Blue Hue dinner
to church officers and their wives
Thursday night at the First Presby
terian church. The object of the
dinner was stated by the toastmas
ter, Judge Emmett M. Dickson, to
get the Presbyterian officers of Paris
together and tell them what this
movement meant to Paris and the
entire State of Kentucky. Judge
Dickson stated that "this move
ment is a permanent investment to
be made by the united churches and
is one of the greatest opportunities
ever offered Presbyterians of Paris
to do their part in the great cause
for Christian education."
Dr. John C. Acheson, President of
the Kentucky College for Women,
was one of the speakers of the even
ing. Dr. Acheson is known through
out Kentucky and the Presbyterian
church as an authority on Christian
education. Dr. Atcheson stressed
the crying need of Christian educa
tion in Kentucky to-day. He said,
in the course of his remarks, that
"there are three problems that face
America to-day educationally. The
presnce of illiteracy, the need of in
tellectual leadership and a growing
demand for character that is butt
ressed by all the chiristian virtues."
He further stated that "the chief
end of education is not culture, but
character. The Christian college is
presided over by strong and virile
Christian men and women, and
only in such an atmosphere can
Christian character be developed, for
after 'all, character is propagated,
not evolved. Education, as Dr. But
ler puts it, includes sympathy with
and penetration into science, art,
literature, our political institutions
and our religious life. Religious
training, therefore, stands on a par
with every other element that en
ters into education, nay, more it
stands superior to every other for it
has to do with not only this life, but
that which is to come. Because of
the secularizing tendencies of to
day, it is imperative that the Pres
byterian churches support and main
tain their schools and colleges on a
Rev. John M. Vander Meulen, D.
D.f President of the Presbyterian
Theological Seminary of Louisville,
and recognized as one of the fore
most educators in Kentucky, stress
ed the necessity for building up our
jjistitutions and pointed out the
united effort on the part of both
branches of the Presbyterian church
to better conditions throughout the
State. He said, in part, "we are
met as Presbyterians, and we have
many things of which we may be
proud as Presbyterians. But that of
which we may justly be proud is
that we own an institution (Centre
College) which has probably pro
duced more distinguished men than
any other denominational college in
the country twice its size, or any
State institution many times as
large. And we are met as Chris
tians to do the thing which Christ
most wants us to do, and which His
cause most needs to further insti
tutions like the college and semi
nary which shall train men to . be
Christians. Paris is the first one of
the thirteen cities in Kentucky to
be appealed to. Paris holds the
proud position of leadership. Will
Paris meet the challenge to ' the
greatest opportunity that will ever
be given the Presbyterians of this
generation to do a big thing for
Christ? I feel that this is a cause
that appeals tp the heart and pride
of every Presbyterian in Kentucky."
As a climax of the interesting pro
gram came a telegram from the
Rev. T. S. Smylie, who is recovering
his health in the mountains of
North Carloina. The message read:
"Tell the people the pastor is count
ing on them to do their best in a
great cause. Second Corinthians,
Mr. Peale Collier accepted the
chairmanship of the Executive Com
mittee upon being assured of the
backing and support of the Presby
terians of, Paris. The announce
ment of Mr. Collier's decision was
received amid applause and many
expressions of loyalty.
Features of the dinner were the
decorations and elaborate menu un
der the direction of Mrs. Charles
Duncan, assisted by the ladies of the
church. Delightful music was fur
nished by an orchestra in charge of
Miss Elizabeth Crutcher.
In the County " Court Judge Geo.
Batterton dismissed a writ of habeas

against his wife, Mary Brown Har

case excited a great deal of interest
locally. Mrs. Harney was represent
ed by E. M. Dickson. The Court,
while dismissing the habeas corpus
proceedings, refused to decree as to
who would have the permanent

morning for a round-the-country
swing in a trade-boosting jaunt.
' Forty-five gayly decorated ma
chines, filled with enthusiastic
"boosters" and their friends, both
young and old, assembled in front of
the court house at 7:45 Wednesday
morning. After a short concert on
the plaza by the Boys Band from
the Odd Fellows Home at Lexington,
the motorcade was formed in line of
invasion, with Grand Marshal Ru
dolph Davis in charge, and, getting
well under way, left the city in a
blaze of enthusiasm.
The first stop was made at Hutch-
rison, where a small crowd had gath
ered in anticipation of the visit. A
short talk was made by I. W. Bush,
Paris representative of the Lexing
ton Herald, and souvenirs were dis
tributed to the spectators by the
Paris merchants. The band render
ed a number of selections, and after
good-byes the motorcade moved on
to the next stop, Clintonville, where
Prof. Lee Kirkpatrick, superintend
ent of the Paris City Schools, was
the principal speaker. The same
program was followed out there,
'and the 'cade went on to North Mid
dletown, where a genuine welcome
awaited the "Boosters." Dr. Lot R.
Henry delivered an address of wel
come, which was responded to by
Sheriff M. Peale Collier, on behalf
of the "Boosters. Here souvenirs
were distributed and a musical pro
gram rendered by the band. At Lit
tle Rock a good-sized crowd greeted
the visitors. Prof. B. M. Roberts, of
Little Rock Consolidated School,
gave the address of welcome, to
which response was made by Win. 0.
Hinton, of Paris.
From Little Rock the visitors
journeyed to Millersburg, the larg
est town on the route, outside of
Paris, and here a hearty welcome
was extended by the largest crowd
seen on the trip. Millersburg was
the Mecca to which the tourists had
been trecking, like an oasis in the.
desert, with visions of good things
to eat, hearty hospitality and a
feeling of "You are very welcome"
radioing through the atmosphere.
The Presbyterian people of the -com
munity, especially, were all th&WMarston
that hospitality could mean in the
English language, and the boosters
were made to feel perfectly at home.
The ladies of the Presbyterian
church had prepared a most appetiz
ing luncheon, which was served on
the grounds of the Millersburg Mil
itary Institute. Wm. D. Mclntyre,
Mayor of Millersburg, was the
"Roxie Davis" of that city when it
came to being everywhere at once
and seeing that everything went on
in good style, and that no one was
slighted. The "boosters" were
greeted here with an address of
welcome delivered by Col. W. R.
Nelson, Superintendent of the Insti
tute, to which reply was made in a
most eloquent speech by Virgil
Chapman, Jr., of Paris.
Leaving Millersburg with genu
ine regret the party motored to Rud
dles Mills, where Attorney Raymond
Connell addressed the crowd. At
Shawhan Harold Harris, secretary
of the Paris Commercial Club, was
the speaker. Dr. M. H. Dailey at
Jacksonville, and M. Peale Collier
at Centreville. Then the "boosters,"
tired, dusty and happy, motored
back to the starting point, where,
after a musical program by the Boys
Band, the motorcade disbanded and
the second annual "excursion" of
the trade-boosters passed into his
tory. LABOR DAY SHOOTING TOURNA

SOLOMON REDMON TAKES OWN
Following a long period of ill-
snooting himself through the heart
with a double-barrel shotgun. The
act showed premeditation and de
liberation in its manner of execu
tion. Redmon had been drinking hard
for some time, but had been per
suaded by members of the family
and others to stay at home in the
country. He had been heard to re-
j mark that he was tired of going on
in the manner he had been, and that
it was a bad thing to be sick all the
time. Yesterday morning he had
been talking to his sister, Mrs. Cas
tle Redmon, with whom he resided,
and stated that he was feeling very
sick. Mrs. Redmon tried to cheer
him up, but the despondent man
seemed to see no relief. Mr. Red
mon and son were at work in a barn
some distance from the house.
When Mrs. Redmon left to go to
some other part of the house, Red
mon went into j;he house and secur
ed a shotgun, went out into the
yard. Placing the gun to his breast
he fired the contents of one barrel,
which took effect in his left breast,
piercing the heart and causing in
stant death. Hearing the shot Mrs.
Redmon, her husband and son ran
to the yard and found Mr. Redmon
