E. Evans, W. K. Ooyle, W. L PhillipB, R. N. Olurk: the Uoanty
or OouutyOourt ou August 5th, 1912, ordered an election to be held in the Earlingtou Schoql Dis
trict on.Saturday, September 14, 1912, to take the 3ense of the voters upon the question of the eg.
tablishmoht of a -Graded School District and tyieleyyiug'and collection of taxes to. support such a
district . ' v v . - ',? .. l
v The following subscribed committee, appoiuted by a meeting of citizens held Monday nighty
AugustlSO, desires to make tlie following plaiu statement of facts: ' .
Present School Tax and Where it Goes . ' v
- ' '-
You now are paying into the county common'school tax fund sixteen and two-thirds cents
onjthe hundred dollars of assesscl property valuation, and $1.00 poll tax. Tlie minute the County Board
v Education says the word you will pay 20 cents on the hundred dollars.. None of this money has'
' 'gone to the support of your 'home school, but is used in the general school, expenses of the county, m
'.the building 6f country school buildings, digging wells, providiug school furniture, payiug rents, and
various material improvements, all over the county, .and in maintaining County High Schools in
' other towul of the county.. v ' ' - ' . ;i
Only One Tax and All That at Home
The levying of -the proposed graded school tax will annul the present cou'uty school tax you are
now paying. There can bo only one school tax collected and it is proposed now to vote a eraded, school
tax and keep it all at home for th benefit of your ovn school. No more than $0 cents propprty
and $1.50 poll tax can be levied and collected, and the Board of Trustees you will choose at this
election will probbaly find that 435 cents property and $1.00 poll will be sufficient for the maintenance
of the Earlington Graded School. With careful thought you can readily see that the proportionate
' increase frill bo small. As between 20 cents and 85 cents on proporty, you would pay only 75 cents
more a year on a house and lot which you assess at $500.
The Question of Building and Grounds
We can give you the positive assurance that the owuers of. the school building and grounds now
used by the school are very desirous of the future success and development of your school and, for.
fitliis reason, w.quld be willing to dispose of this property to the new
Uow figuro that will be-satisfactory to all our citizens; at least at a

This change involves the placing of our city on a basis with every other cityof its size in Wes
tern Kentucky, and the raislug of our school from the dependent to the independent class. We
appeal to your civic pride to give this nutter thorough consideration. We firmly believe that when
you have done so, you will heartily support the movement. Talk it to your neighbors, work for its
success, and vote for the Graded School on Saturday, September 14th.
We urge you to attend a mass meeting of citizens, both men and women, at the Temple Theater' on
' Tuesday night, September 3rd, at which time the matter wilLbe thoroughly discussed.

Compulsary School Law
AH parties of Tthe Earlington
.Graded School should take no
tice that the compulsary school
law passed by the last legisla
ture will be enforced. Orders
have been received from the
state Snpt., of public schools
that Buch must be done, and
school authorities are under
heavy penalty for failing to en-force-this
law, so that they can
not afford to fail to do their foil
dut.. The compulsary attend
ance school law requires that all
pupils of theagei 7 to 12 years
shall attend school in their re
spective districts, the full time
the school is in session, unless

CONCERT LAST NIGHT AND COM
PITITION SHOOTING THIS MORNING
This issue of The Bee has been
delayed until Weduesday morn
ing and tins notice is written jus
before going to press.
The camp of instruction and
competioh id rifle practice, of
the Kentucky Stat.e Guard, is in
full" progress here uow, having
been for special reason, post
poned beyond the time, originally
set, as announced in a recent
number of The Bee. The guards
men and officers, some two hun
dred and twenty-five in number,
are located in au ideal camp at
the west end of Mai a street oppo
site the walnut grovev near Loch
Mary. The practice shooting is
over and the real competition is
ou this morning, with prospect of
some uxciting contests before the
week ends, betweeuthe several
rifle teams iu the shoot. The
popping of guns began soon this
morning and will continue vigor
ously through the week.
Some of the officers here in
command and taking part in the
rifle contests are:
Ool. Jouett Henry, Ool. J.
Tandy Ellis, Major Thos. .W.
Woodward,- 1st. Lieut. Brick
Southwo'rth, Lieut. Ool. E. B.
BassettOapt! Ohnsv-H. Morrow,

K. Dodge, Major Uhas. W. Long-

Lieut, Ourris M. Oalston, 1st.
Lieut. Albert G. Stoll, 1st. Lieut.
John H. Terry, Oapt. H. W.
Rogers, Major John A. Webb,
1st. Withan S. Johuson, l3t.
Lieut, Frank R. Lusse,
Yesterday there was a peculiar
conditionof atmosphere on the
range that madesgood shooting
at 100 yards very difficult. There
was a cloudy condition and a
sort of "woolly" light as describ
ed by one officer, which made
clear sight almost impossible.
Last night it was fine and
clear and cool, and today is
bright, and no doubt shooting
conditions this morning, for the
beginning of the real contests,
are all that may be desired.
This camp will last through
the webk. Later there, will
probably be a smaller delegation
of riflemen here for further prac
tice. Last night, the camp had many
visitors and the' Klub Kentucfc
Band went out to camp and gave
the soldier boys and their vis
itors a concert, which, was much
enjoyed. The visiting soldiers
joined in the merry-making in
various ways, doing dancing and
other stunts. Much fun came
when they blanketed a guards
man and afterward a stray dog.
Numerous citizens and officials
of Earlington have commented
on the uniform gentlemanly be
havior of the guardsmen, who
have been under little or no re
straint and have had the free
run of the city. Not a single
instance of bad conduct of any
kind on their part has occurred
since the arrival of this good
bunch of soldier boys. They are
given hearty welcome and the
most kindly regard by the citiJJ
zens of Earlington.
