1 Pays to Advertise In the Rising Gon
Professor of Physics, Lincoln
Alongside with the other competent
teachers of the New Lincoln High
School, Prof Walden as one of the new
teachers stands In a very conspicuous
light. Mr. Walden was born in the
town of Markham, V.rglnla and at
tended the public school of his native
town. Then he attended Wayland
Seminary and College in Washington
I). C, and graduated from the acade
mic course in 1893. He took a Post
Graduate course at Coburn Classical
Institute at Waterville Maine and fin
ished in 1894. Afterwards entering
Colby University at the same place
and finishing 1898.
Immedately on leaving college he
took charge of the department of
Natural Sciences at Roger-Williams
University, Nashville, Tenn. Occupy
ing the chair from 1899 to 1905. Leav
ing Roger-Williams because of the de
structive fires to that Institution oc
oui ing Jan. 24. 1905, and May 22, 1905,
he was given the chair in the depart
ment of Industries and in additions to
that teaching some studies in nat
ural science, particularly college
During the years of his teaching
service, he has been Improving all
he time taking two special courses,
one In X-ray and Physico Chemical
' Radiography and the other in Miner,
slogy In the University of Chicago.
Prof. Walden Is a staunch Christian
nd a follower of the faith, and since
giving his valuable service to his spe
cial school, he has also begun to take
n active part In the Y. M. C. A., and
e wish to say in order for such insti
tutions to prosper they need more
men like Prof Walden's type. He is
at present occupying the chair of
PhvHlcB at Lincoln High School In
which subject he has devoted a num
ber of years, making him peculiarly
fitted and doubly valuable in that
line. Prof. Walden has a very nice
family, composed of a boy and
girl, and a wife of very pleasing man
ner. Intellect and refinement.
In Mr. Walden the people and the
community at large nave a very vm
uable adjunct to our new Higli
School's corps of teachers and ho
should be given every consideration.
The members of the Athletic Asso
ciation under the able management of
Professor West are preparing for the
annual contests upon the gridiron.
Sounders, otherwise "Big Jim," Young,
Richardson, Johnson, and many oth
ers well known in former victories,
are all here In good shape.
The religious bodies, the Y. M. C.
A. and Y. W. C. A. societies are in
flourishing conditions and aid mater
ially in elevating the tone of student
life. The concert given by the Y. M.
C. A., on the 12th Inst., under the su
pervision of Professor Reynolds was
financially and otherwise a great suc
cess. Friday, November 9th, the date set
for the Annual Farmers Conventions,
draws night, and we hope many are
planning to he present. At no pre
vious time in the world's history has
that ancient and honorable occupa
tion known as agriculture received the
scientific attentions that has been ac

yet. even with the present advanced
ideas on the subject, farming meth
ods today, as some one has we'l sa'd,
are little mor than "a slight scratch

To render this same "scratching"
more complete, more productive of
results, is the a'm of tbe Farmers' In
stitutes and Conventions that have
multiplied within the last few years.

For Probate Judge.
It Is a pleasure for us to recom
mend Judge Gulnotte to the public
as the logical candidate for Probate
Judge. He Is a man of unquestioned
character and high reputation.
Many men, In their - private lives,
win love and esteem, but few punllc
officials niche themselves In the
hearts of the people, Inspiring a feel
ing that takes no account of party
or partisanship. Such an one Is Judge
Edgar Gulnotte, Probate Judge. The
place is one that calls for more than
mere learning, ripe knowledge. Ju
dical dlspasston and that sort of
thing, for a Probate judge deals with
humanity in the raw, and sustains the
most sacred fiduciary relations to the
widow and the orphan. Passionately
Just, tender of heart as a child, and
generously sympathetic, he has saved
many a small estate from despoil
ment, and safeguarded hundreds of
black-gowned women and children. It
Is the commonest sort of thing one
that no longer occasions comment
for him to refuse the fees due him
from the administration of such es
tates where the bereaved ones have
need of every cent. Little surprise.
then, that he Is loved and honored
by all who admire gentleness, nobility
and honor.
He was born and reared In Jackson
county and his life is an open book
to us. He is known by both black
and white and Is especially known for
his charitable deeds.
For Congress.
We heartily endorse Hon. William
H. Wallace for Congress from the
Fifth District. No better man could

should turn its eyes to men and not
parties. Men who stand for prin

the Hon. William H. Wallace. Wal

charitable acts are sung in praise at

Now if he Is elected there is one
thing that Is very likely to be, and
that is that a little Negro boy might
get to carry his grip up to the White
For Revenue Collector.
We especially recommend Mr. Wil

lector. He is against the man who
is against the Negro vote, Mr. Fred
Adams. Now is the time and chance
for the Negro to help his friend. To
place his friend where his friend ran

Charley Baldwin.
The Hon. Tom Pendergast, who Is

If he gets the office. We know he
will treat them right. And If he
makes any promises he will make

Device by Which He May Be Ren

The kicking horse Is not only dan

The usual method of starting a
breed of live stork Is to select two
or more unusually good animals from
a group that has been developed In
a certain direction by means of better
food, better environment and careful
selection from a greater number. No
breed Is ever started if the animals
that can he used are not better than !
the same breed of animals in another l
locality. At the beginning this work
Is carried on by a few men, some
times by one. In-breeding bos to be
practiced for generations till certain
characteristics are fixed In the ani
mals. The In breeding Is intensified
by constantly eliminating those anl
niuls not of the desired type.
Feeding the Pig.
It does not follow because a hungry
pin will gulp down almost any kind
of slop, that any kind Is good enough
for him. Muke the slop strong enough
to give the pig a well rounded form
that will stay with him all of the
time, not the form that Is seen Just
after leaving the trough.
The Profitable Pig.
Under average conditions with the
farmer, there is very little profit In
feeding pigs after they reach a weight
of '!."() pounds. The must pork is mailo

Remarkable Railway.
An up-hill railway, perhaps the
most remarkable in the world, is the
Oroyo. In Peru. It runs from Cullue
to the gold fields of Cetro de Pat.ro
From t'allao It ascends the narrow
valley of the Hiniuc. rising nearly
5.000 feet in the first f.ti miles
Thence It goes through the Intricate
gorges of the Sierras till it tunnels
the Andes at an altitude of 15,('ir
feet, the highest jiolnt in the world
where a piston-rod Is moved by steam.
The wonder Is Increased by remem
bering that this elevation is reached
in 78 miles.
Moved ths Wolrd.
C'eril Ithodew was onre considered
crank. When Mr. Rhodes made hi?
first appearance In the Cape purlin
ment he could talk of nothing hut his
great Idea of a transcontinental railway
and with the aid of a specially pre
pared mup he sought to Interest his
fellow members In the colossal
scheme. Most of them thought him
a bore and some openly railed him
a crank.
Was Dead at the Throttle.
An engineer died at his Mst on a
fast express train running from Boh
ton to Philadelphia recently. It is
not know how long the dead hand
rested on the throttle, as the track
was clear for many miles. Not until
they were entering Philadelphia like u
whirlwind did the fireman discover
that the engineer was dead.
