I'araM In advanra. f'ta Alvrtttsr Rrirwntitl, Springtime and Production Every timid has silver lining, and (he beautiful, miM weather throughout the winter and the early opening of spring re the ailver lining to the dark rloutla that overshadowed the farmer last fall. Crop sold below tout, money was "tijrht" and the aituation became depressing. Everything looked gloomy, but the mild weather rut in two the demand, for high priced coal. Stink thrived on half the ordinary amount of food, people wort thread bare clothe with comparative comfort, and the far-lghted enjoyed an abundance of canned fruit and vegetable. Farmer do not have much money just now, but they have lived comfort ably, and the Lord never ittarted them out with mure hopeful year than the year of 1021. Spring ia the time to atart production. Production ia that part of our economic life which make poible the comfort and pros perity of the people a a whole. Inflated price, artificial produc tion, excess of luxuries usually bring temporary prosperity, but they are not enduring. The farmer 1 the great food producer. The world look to him for a living, and the spring ia the only time he can begin to produce. In the spring, before the blossom rome, he should prune and spray his fruit trees, he should clear the soil, turn the turf, repair hi fence, and get everything ready for crop producing. Those of us who have enjoyed canned fruit, pre nerves and home grown apple all winter know the pleasure of home production. The farmer i no parasite on society; he deals constantly with the fundamental of life. Of all the heroes who have adorned the page of history the costliest and most ex quisite monument should be erected to the memory of the Ameri can farmer, but a monument are usually erected to those who are dead, we must build to him a living monument in our hearts and live and help him to make his work more attractive and hi remuneration more ure. Mob Violence and Patriotism A group of unpatriotic, unchristian law-breaker hare once more attempted to cover the fair name of Kentucky with shame. White citizens v. ho have not yet learned the true meaning of patriotism have, by lynching a negro, stooped to more heinous crime than the one they tried to avenge. One Richard James was on trial in Versailles for the murder of two white men in Woodford county. The jury could not come to an agreement and on the following night fifty armed men over powered the jailor and lynched James. The jury was not treating the case lightly, a wa evidenced by their report, for eleven turnil'ers were for execution and one for life imprisonment. One man held out for life imprisonment because he could not bring hi conscience to san.-tion capital punishment. Judge Stout imme diately called a special term of court to retry the case, and there is every reason to believe that the next jury would have given the full extent of the law. But in the face of these fact this gang of tlefamer of home and country entered into a conspiracy again their county, their state, and their nation, and put to shame the very law Jhey are sworn, as citizens, to uphold. Kvery patriotic citizen should join hands with Governor Mor rfiw in his fight against mob violence and assist in every way pos sible in bringing to justice the men who took part in thin shame ful deed. The crime of the negro should not be condoned and everything pointed to an expeditious handling of the case in legal form. Outlawry never insure justice and always brings humilia tion. The Citizen ha never, and we hope will never, support a single degree of lawlessness. We believe in prompt action of courts and meeting out of justice to offenders; we also believ" in turning a marhinegun upon a mob that trie to wrest authority from the law of organized society. We congratulate Governor Morrow upon the stand he ha taken and pray that he will con tinue the fight to the end. The Twilight Cat. The Yomel gate at Nlkko Is magnlfl reot. The celling of Its entrance ha draitoii fitting In eight directions, and the telling of the Interior has a dragon gazing In four directions. The 12 pillars of the gate are of keyakl wood elaborately carved and Inlaid with all kind of precious wood. The beams are "JO-cornered and each square la painted In minute design. Ther) are on this gate Innumerable carving of dragon and htm, all painted and lacquered profusely. One becomes so fascinated In studying the detail that be tarrle at the gale until the day wane. Thus It ha come to be called the Twilight gate. Florence I'eltler la Asia Magazine. Fleur-de-lis.

Wood Carving Came From Egypt Wood carving was common lu very early Kg. pllim sculpture. Some of the most realistic statues of the ancient empire were curved In wood, such aa the so-called "Sheikh el Iteled" and III wife, and a number of other. Wood waa a convenient ground for polychro matic decoration ; thut la, treating tha carved figure with a thin coat lug of plaster upon which tha artist placed bla color. Thi art was very popular with Kgyptlan artist. In Oreece wood carving probably was the earliest form of archaic sculpture. Tha later Greeks and Kotnans used It compara tively little, but among tha moat re markable work of early Christian sculpture are the carved wooden doors of Santa Eablna, Konia. J THE PARUII.E OF THE CLEAN HOG AND THE POSTOFf ICE Behold, there wa an husbandman, which dealt in swine, and he Invested the profit of hi husbandry In yet other swine so that he prospered, and hla animals were content and of a round and jolly aspect. Now a certain favorite sow brought forth seven goodly on and three fair daughters. Among thee aon wa' one which" surpassed all the others in rnmlines and wisdom, an I hi mother set him above all her children, and he ruled over them and they obeyed him. And he flourished and waxed great, even a Joseph of old. And he wa larger and had a greater appetite than all hi breth ren. In the fullnrsa of time it came to pasa that he reached maturity and became young hog. And he re joiced in hi strength and he said un to his mother, "Yea, give me thy blessing, and I will depart and go in to a distant place, and aee new scene and travel in a foreign clime." And she blessed him and said, "Go." And he went. On the first day of hi travel he came unto a city, and the gate there of being open, he entered in, anJ passed through the market place and before the door of the money changer. And he drew nigh unto an house which i called a "post office." And when he had looked and said, "Why doth not this man clean hi stable?" And having an inquiring minJ7 and thore being nori to stay him, he entered and abode there for a little Reason. But be coming uncomfortable, be shook him self and said, "Yea, I like not this place," and being an hungered, he be gan to long for the flesh pots of home, and be returned to the house of hi mother. But hi mother and hi brethren saw him afar off, and smelled him, nnd they lifted up their voice and said, "Behold, our brother returneth, and 1 an hungered and cold, but r herefore smelleth he thus?" And when, that he had approached nigh unto them, they perceived that he was defiled with dust and spittle, and ashes and ancient spaders, and cobweb and vermin, o that he wa no longer worthy to associate with hi kindred. And one of his brethren, even the largest, arose and said, "Yea, the fool hBth been to the postoffice, which hath not been swept for two admin istrations." And they fell upon him and smote him, and he fled, anil they pursued after him and smote him hip and thigh, and drave him forth, and ct a mark upon him. And he became a wanderer and a vagabond upon the face of the earth. It hath been known of all men that, "A new broom aweepeth clean," but thi parable sheweth the converse that an old broom sweepeth not at all. Alson Baker Ncbocly Want Bungler.

She told u of the wonderful trans forming influence of a faithful little girl. The school board met Saturday night. Two things of vital concern were passed upon. First, that school would close at the end of the eighth morth this year; second, that the employment of a principal would be postponed till the next regular meet ing In April. The Board recommended that the graduating class prepare no regular program for the occasion, but to put time and strength on the daily schedule of work in order to overcome the handicap of the shortened term.

Then the climax of entertainments, the Rodeheaver concert. But we realize it is all for the good of the school. The Parent-Teacher's Association met 2:30 Friday p. m. The president, Mrs. Godbey, was absent on account of the death of Dr. Godbey's- brother, the vice president. Brother Holder conducted the de votional exercises. Children of the upper grades sang two patriotic selections. Mrs. Frank Hayes then gave an in teresting paper on "The Significance of the American Flag."

Noble, Mrs. Ellen Mitchell and Miss Beulah Young, our genial hostesses, who contribute.! materially and spiritually to the pleasure of the social hour. Everyone on the Public School campus has had it thoroly impressed upon his mind this week that base ball has put every other game in the shade for the time being. Thursday morning a demonstration will be made in the auditorium show ing what a V'ictrola can do for a school. ' Money Saved!
