Some Reasons For Joining The B T C
A few days ago the writer was
naked tho qucl tollCtWhat good Js
to come from Joining the Borea
Teachers Club fIt
It is a most practical question and
ono which should be asked before
going into any now work It is one
also that everyone should be able to
answer in regard to any thing they
ask others to support I will en
duavor to answer the question to tho
best of my ability for the benefit of
thoso who read THE CITIZEV
Borea College has much work to
do but tho greatest of all is tho
formation of an ideal iu the mind of
every student upon whom it brings
its influence to bear This ideal is
that life is u service and ts to bo
measured by the amount that man
kind is uplifted by the strong pure
earnest life of tho individual If
you have or are striving for this
ideal and are determined to make
every hour spent iiNtlio schoolroom
count for the utmost in its influence
upon tho fives of your pupils and
your life in the community bea
blessing to the lifo of tlmt com
munity then you should join the
Club so that you may unite your
efforts with those who are in har
mony with you in aims and ideals
Our State needs teachers who feel
that teaching is a sacred mission
whether followed for n year or for a
lifetime and Berca wants her
students to fill this need If you
arc in a community with low
educational ideals you may find it
lard to hold up to your higher ones
but if you hear each week from
your fellow teachero who are in
sympathy with you and nre able to
discuss problems with them through
the Club column Itwill bo much
Besides this general encourage
ment how many will lee 1ns they
take up some topic during the fall
that they would like to have the
ideas of some one moro experienced
than themselves as to how it can be
made of the greatest value to the
child t You should call for those
through the Club column
Then aside from the professional
interests there is tho social side of
our lives How glad wo would bo to
know how our friends are pro
greasing in their work We cannot
correspond with them allso let us
allow tho Club to do this Who
would fail to look for THE CITIZEN
with eagerness each week if they
know it would contain bits of news
from a dozen old friend seach week l
Join tho Club and writo us every
few weeks and this will be accom
Finally there is the business side
to tho Club Every teachpr should
plan to invest part olCen n
books that will be frieqda for lifo
You can do this through tho College
if you are aD T C member Are
theso sufficient reasons for joining
tho Club If not say BO and more
will be forthcoming space permits

t Cause of Diphtheria
Diphtheria is a widespread disease
which is perhaps more prevalent in
largo towns than in country districts
It is to be classed among the infec
tious fevers and it certainly is one of
the most dangerous of them all It
is most frequently met with among
children but adults are by no means
The real cause of the disease is now
known to boa minute germ somewhat
resembling a rod in shape when seen
under a very high magnifying power
This germ causes severe inflame
nation of the lining membrane of
the throat nose eye or indeed of
any part of tho body with which it
comes in contact It has also the
special power of forming a tough
and very adherent membrane It is
this membrane which causes so much
of the danger connected with the
disease as it blocks up the windpipe
and so prevents the natural ingress
and egress of air to and from the
Tho germ of diphtheria is exceed
ugly difficult to destroy It is there
fore very virulent and no ordinary
disinfectant has tho powor of com
pletely exterminating it This fact
must be carefully borne in inincl as
on it depends tho great importance
of exercising tho most stringent
measures with regard to disinfection

The Revival of Country Fairs
Ono of tho most hopeful signs of a
renewed interest in livestock through
out Kentucky is the number of county
fairs that will bo held this year Time
was when every shire town of a few
hundred inhabitance boasted its fair
duration the premiums given might
reach a total of only a few hundred
dollars but to tho people of the com
munity where it was held that fair was
the most important event of the year
It offered the opportunity for a vaca
tion frou work for the social inter
mingling of friends and neighbors for
the exhibition of the best stock of all
the surrounding country fair the do
cision of the mooted question of tho
respective merit of the different liar
ness horses of the section
These fairs taken collectively were
of tho greatest service to the State
They stimulated ambition and advanc
ed ideas for improvement in farming
methods By competition they inspired
greater care of live stock and the
acquisition of pure blood lines They
were of marked educational value
But for various reasons they were
discontinued in many counties The
financial stringency of ten years ago
was the death knell of many Beyond
I a doubt however the failure of tho
State to properly encourage them by
tho establishment of a first class State
Fair caused a general lack of interest
i and a final falling off Such a State
Fair is to tho county fairs what a
State University is to tho public
school system They need it as an
inspiration an example the comple
Lion of the education in agriculture
and live stock for which they lay so
good a foundation
The discontinuance of these fairs
was unquestionably a serious loss
Take mere results to prove the bs
sortion Kentucky has fallen far from
the position she once held in the pro
A comparatively few years ago buy
ers from allover America flocked here
fof Shorthorns Jerseys and other
grades of cattle for mules and sheep
as well as for horses of all sorts To
get the best blood and finest indi
viduals they had to come here Now
the more northern States of the Mid
die West Indiana Illinois Iowa
and othershave taken the cattle
trade from us Missouri has outstrip
ped us far in the production of mules
Other sections have greater trotting
horses than we It is not that the
brand of tho Bluegrass is not still of
inestimable value carrying with it
an assurance of quality that nothing
favored by nature as wo are we can
not still produce better animals of
whatever sort than any other section
of tho country The fact is simply
that we have sold off so much of our i
best parent stock of various kinds
that wo have no longer been ablo to
supply the demand As a consequence
the trade has gone elsewhere
Tho revival of country fairs and tho
establishment of a first class State
Fair are sure to result in an impetus
I to tho live stock interests of Kentucky
The old spirit of desire to produce the
best blooded stock will bo rekindled in
in trotters tempted by a fictitous
value to go beyond the limit Of pru
dence and who disgusted with that
failure have since letall stock alone
will again begin the production of
some grade of cattle or stock of other
sort And from such beginnings small
perhaps but generalwill come once
more results of which the State may
I maybe
I distant when Kentucky will again be
I hailed as leader in every branch of
live stock It will require hard work
general education and unflagging
enthusiasm But it is worth tho effort
if our people will but realizo it
