ONLY ONE SCHOOL TAX AND
--ALL THAT FOR EARLINGTON
Good Schools on Permanent Basis for Home
Folfts and Our Future Assured
EARLINGTON HAS HAD
THE PENNY AND THE
CAKE TOO FOR 30 YEARS
Present School Tax now all Goes Into
General Funds for Rural Schools
EARLINGTON WILL GET ANOTHER
COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL CONTRACT
The announcement published
in Friday's Bee about the calling
of the electiou to establish a
graded school district iu-Earling-ton
has attracted general atten
tion and is coming in for ho lit
tle consideration uud discussion
by the homo folks'most' interest
ed. Of course all the details of
the situation cannot bo under
stood perhaps from a single an
nouncement, and all phases of
the question could not be cover
ed in a single article. Bui it
will bo -tho Bee s purpose' to
try to give full publicity to ev
erything bearing on the matter,
to the end that our people may
fully understand and, under
standing, will work together in
harmony and full accord for the
proposed important progress in
our school work, affecting every
member of the community and
making sure the future welfare
of oar school and, our children,
One thing must be understood
in the beginning. That is that
there will be only oue school tax.
Our people aro uow and have
been for the past three years,
paying a school tax, which has
gone and is going into the treas
ury of the County Board of E0
ucation for the general support
of the rural schools of Hopkins
county. What is now proposed
is that we shall vote a school tnx
for local purposes only, for the
Bupport of the Earlington Graded
and High School, all Of which
will be used for the benefit of
ourselves and our neighbors in
the proposed new graded school.
This graded school district tax
will take the place of the pres
ent school tax we are assessed
aud cannot escape.- It will not
be another or a second tax. The
Bee believes that the people of
Earhngton have an interest in
educatiou, in the future welfare
of their children, and that they
have home pride enough too, to
fall in on this public spirited
movement for the good of all
our people, and make the thing
thing practically unanimous at
the election to be held on Satur
day, September 14th next.
The order for the election men
tions a property tax of 50' cents
oq the hundred dollars of assess
ed valuation and o poll - tax of
$1 50. This means ( that these
are "the limits beydtia 'which a
board of trustees may not go in
thejevy and collection of taxes
for the school's Bupport and
maintenance. It doe's not mean
that the board of trustees ;wil'
find it necessary at once to levy.;
to the limit, but that, it may do,
se if necessary. Eve'n so, a 50
cent tax for school 'purposes is
very modest indeed,, and none of
our people would find such a tax
burdensome. We mby also flu:J
comfort and strength in the-
thought that we have escaped all
these paBt thirty or more years
all local school tax, and thus be
now reconciled to the inevitable,
if we would educate and progress;
aad now be enthusiastically will
ing t pay our penny for our
cake and get our full reward in
the eating of it.
That the local school tax, both
on property aud the poll tax is
inevitable and cannot bo escaped,
we all now realize, because we
have beeu paying such a tax into
thecouuty treasury, for the ben
efit of all Hopkins county, for
the past three years. Let us uow
all agree to pay our school taxes
for home consumption only and
use all the proceeds for the bene
fit of Earlington.
Assurance was yesterday given
by the County Superintendent
aud the County Board of Educa
tion that a new county high
school contract will be given the
Earlington School, on equal foot
ing with the other high schools of
the county us Boon as Earlington
becomes a legal graded schools

Keeping Air Fresh.
A good way to keep tho air of S

to place a Jar in some inconspicuous

This makes a faint, pleasant odor o

The best rifle range in Kentucky

genial small arms expert, Captain
Col. Henry and his staff will be
here in supreme command and all

soldier boys are coming here to have,
a big annual shoot.
From the 10th to tho 20th riflemen

heretofore qualified as "marksmen"

expected to visit Earliugton and
take part in competition for higher-'
honors, that they may qualify as
"sharp shooters" and "expert rifle
men." Not many men will come
from the 1st, Kentucky tor the
reason that there are but few com
panies in oommision in that regi
ment at this'tine. During tbe period
mentioned the men of tho 2nd regi
ment will assemble at London for
