That Ken tucky is essentially a rural state is shown conclusively by the statistics for the State Just issued by the Cen sj Bureau, and based upon the 1920 .eration.

The estimate la made that the mount of solar energy stored la tlsots each year la '-2 tlmea the amount of energy represented by the eel consumed in the same period. About 67 per cent of thia plant energy la taken up by the forests; 24 per rent by culthsted plants; 7 per cent by grass of the steppes and pralriea, and 2 per cent hjr the plant a of desert lands. The energy received by forests) alone la 14 times the energy of the coal used. Hut unfortunately the for ests thst receive this energy are main ly In the tropica. In temperate re gions we are depleting the forests ust a we are exhausting the coal supply; further justifying the proph ecy that centers of manufacture, and therefore prcwmiahly of civilisation Itself, will ultimately shift back to ward the eipiator.

Trlest Wilbur Kebllnger, Ameri can Consul to Flume, left that city for Trlest to. await Instructions from the State Department at Washington after recognition had been refused by the Flume (ioNeniment. Dr. Antonio Qtoe slcli, provisional hend of Flume, snld to Mr. Kthiltigcr: "We were surprised at this action on the part of your gov ernment In asking u to recognize you and protect you when Uie United States had not recogrlzed us." Dr. Orosrtich anc Foreign Minister Rpringettl were very cordial to Mr. Kebllnger, saying In effect: "We muat assure you that there la nothing per sonal nbout this. We know you and gladly would recognize you, and would be honored In having such an esteemed representative as you, but the diplo matic relations existing between our nation and your Government do not permit us to recognize you." It Is learned from the Flume author ities that Consul Kobllnger'a Instruc tions from the State Department were that he was to make plain to the Pro visional (iovertMiient Unit his establish ment of a Consulate at Flume waa not to be construed as recognition of the prosent Government, but that the American Consulate waa there ready to curry on consular business, and that, as It sought the permission, recognition and protection of the present authori ties, the arrangement waa the same as prevailed under the old Interallied occupation before Gatiriele d'Annun tlo's expedition, Mr. Kebllnger, who occupied Uie post when the poet-aviator entered, was forced to leave on Uie flagship Pittsburg with Rear Admiral Andrews and the Vice Consul.

Our Threefold Aim: To fir the News of Berea and Vicinity To Record the Happenings of Bcrea College; To be of Intereiit to all the Mountain Teople. No. 38 WorldNews Reports from Russia are unccrUin, but it aeems probable thst a counter revolution is under way. The Bol shevlst leader, Trotsky, is said to have offered a reward for the bodv of the opposing leader and a counter reward waa offered for the body of Trotsky. Petrograd was reported tn be in flames during the week. Refu gees report that the Bolshevist sol diers are not proving loval and can. not be trusted. It is believed tha Kerensky, the former Russian leader, is connected with the counter revolu tion. The occupation of Germany bv the Allies continues and no resistance la offered. The German minister. Rim. onds, is feeling the results of hia bold stand, as the people are holding him responsible. In the occupation many hidden arms are being found and the delivery of them to the Af lies is demanded. The reparation problem seems to be complicated by a disagreement as to the amount al ready paid. The French are threat ening an added penalty In rase the Germans do not pay the amount de manded. The new American President and his Secretary of State have decided to continue the same policy toward Russia that was pursued by the last administration. The United Statea earnestly supported the first revolu tion, but it has consistently refused to give any recognition to the radical regime. Much pressure . has been brought to bear to secure such rec ognition. It' is encouraging to know that the policies will not be disturbed because of political differences. The Spanish premier, Eduardo Da ta, was assassinated as he was leav ing congress at Madrid. The assas sin escaped on a motorcycle. The minister was one of the most conser vative In Spain and had evidently in curred the Ill-will of the laboring men. He has served In many capac ities in congress and in the cabinet He was a man of gentle temperament but iron will. He had amassed a considerable property by hla law practice. An effort to prevent the Lord May or of Ireland, O'Callahan, from speak ing thruout the United States haa failed. He was not granted a pass port by a United States consul, but the passport law having been re pealed, he goes wherever he likes and speaks for the cause of Ireland. An exception could be granted by the President, but it is not likely that any action will be taken at all. The island of Yap cornea into prom inence by virtue of Japanese mandate over that island, which formerly be longed to Germany. The mandate waa granted by the supreme council of the Allies and ratified by the League of Nations. The United States haa been the chief objector. The mandate effects the right to cable stations with which our country U concerned. Japan suggests that con cessions may be made along thia line, but refuses to withdraw from the mandate. A - new Entente has been recently established between Hungary, Ruma nia, and Poland. The object ia said to be protection against the Bolshe vik! of Russia. Another Entente ex ists between Rjrmania, Csecho-Slov-akia and Jugo-Slavia. This grouping of the states created by the Treaty of Versailles is a natural protection against the Weakness of small states. There are clement of danger, how ever, in such alignmenta, aa they may defeat the purpose of the Treaty. Stroll With Morgan Gave Credit An acquaintance once approached the first J. P. Morgan and asked for I loan of $10,000. Morgan knew the man waa responsible, but for private rea sous did not want to make the loan himself. He did, however, say be would aerure the money for him, re lates Collier's. Putting on hla hat and coat, he asked the man to go with him. They atarted at Broad and Wall afreets, walked through Wall to Broad way, and back to Broad. Morgan did not atop anywhere, nor ask anyone to lend bis coiupaniou 110,000. At the door of his onVe Morgau shook hauds with the tnuii and bade hliu good day. "But," objected the applicant, "you didn't get uie the SIO.OOO." "Oh, yea, I did." aald Morgau. "Anybody down there." waving toward Wall atreet, "will let you have It now."
