THE CITIZEN
A TOUR OF EASTERN
KENTl'CKT
r By M. E. Vaaghn
The tour of twelve rountiea that
President Hutching, Dr. Trawick and
aon, of Louisville, and I have Just
completed wag the most interesting
and instructive that I havt ever
made into Eastern Kentucky. W
aw mountain life, primitive and un
scarred by the advent of modern in
dustry. We mw machinery that coat
millions, in industrial center, bring
ing to the surface millions of tons
of black diamonds for the use ot
man. In some of these centers
paved streets, electric liKhts, public
bathhouses, and conveniences that
are to be found in any city were the
common possession of the Inhabi
Until. Therefore, the term "typicnl
mountaineer" or "tyipical mountain
conditions" can no longer be applied.
We can,, with propriety and truthful
ness, speak of primitive mountain
conditions and industrialized nioun
tain conditions, hut not typical moun
tain conditions.
My first stop was at McKee, the
county seat of Jackson county.
where, on the Fourth of July, a (treat
celebration was held. It is estimat
ed that at least 2,000 people were in
attendance, and the spirit of progress
and good fellowship prevailed ai
never before. The greatest tribute
to the efficacy of the law and the
efficiency of a judge that I ever saw
was paid by the McKee crowd on the
Fourth of July. Not the slightest
disturbance broke the tranquil spirit
that prevailed thruout the day. Judge
Hiram Johnson, who had wrought
such wonderful changes in the life of
Jackson county, died July 3rd, and
the good citizens of the county were
in mourning.
The County Achievement Contest
that is being promoted by the Exten
sion Department of Berea College
and supported by Judge Bingham, of
the Louisville Courier-Journal, was
launched at the big McKee ally
Many definite improvement were
started. A new courthouse, a road
from McKee to Madison county and
vast improvements in the schools are
projects that are to be started at
once.
While I was at McKee President
Hutchins was attending a similar
meeting at Pine Mountain Settlement
School in Harlan county, where he
made the Fourth of July address.
On the day following the rally the
President went on an inspection tour
of the rural schools with Miss But
ler, Extension Agent for the Pine
Mountain School. While on this
journey he spoke at the Medical
Settlement on Big Laurel Creek.
The four of us spoken of at the
beginning of the story met for
the first time, on this trip, in
Harlan, Thursday, July the 6th.
Dr. Trawick was commissioned by
the State Board of Health to make
a survey of a number of countie3
with the view of holding Orthope
dic clinics.
A number of examinations were
made in Harlan and arrangements
perfected for a clinic to be held, to
which as many cripples as possible
will be brought by the local physi
cians. Our itinerary took ua next to
the famous Lynch mines, where the
United States Steel Corporation op
erates a subsidiary under the name
of the United States Coal and Coke
Company. When we inquired for a
guide to show us thru the great million-dollar
steel tipple that has
loading capacity of 500 aixty ton cars
per day, the superintendent of the
grounds proffered his services. Up
on introduction, we found him to be
Samuel R. Riley, an old Berea stu
dent, of 1906, '07 and '08. The en
tire Lynch operation was one of the
greatest surprises of the Journey.
We were informed that the entire
outlay of the plant was more than
seventeen million dollars. A quarter
million dollar hotel accommodates
the visitors who go to Lynch, and
provisions are made for the work
men as well. One la impressed with
the air of perfect democracy as he
walks thru the lobby of the hotel
and sees coal diggers and white col
lared visitors freely conversing. The
hotel is not an Improper setting for
the offices, sanitarium, department
commiwary, concrete streets and resi
dences of the workmen all have the
atmosphere of a modem city. As to
interns! workings of the corporation
we are not familiar, but the outward
appearances to the casual visitor are
ideal. The Corporation knows how
to educate boosters for the institu
tion (for it is an institution). The
two foremen whom we interviewed
have nothing but praises for. the
United States Steel.
Our next report will outline the
wagon ride over Pine Mountain and
down Line Fork in Letcher county.

BOARD OF HEALTH ISSUES NEW
WARNING
Louisville, Ky., July 14. Prevalence
of rabies in all parts of Kentuck
has led the State Board of Health to
larue a new warning that all persons
bitten by dogs promptly should take
Pleasures to protect themselves.
Twenty persons in localities scatter
ed all over the State have applied to
the board for treatment for the dis-
. rnse in the last thirty days.
I The first step to be taken, accord
ing to Dr. Lillian South, director of
the board's laboratories, is to conf.ne
the dog that has done the biting.
She emphasized the fact that it is not
necessary immediately to kill the an
imal. If he lives nine days it is cer
tain that he has not rabies, and no
further steps need be taken.
If he dies before the expiration of
this period of confinement, however,
his head should be sent to the labora
tory of the State Board for exami
nation. There it will be determined
whether or not he was afflicted with
rabies. In case the former is true,
the person bitten should take the
serum treatment for the disease, as
when it develops in a human being it
invariably is fatal.
This serum treatment can be ob
tained free of charge at the State
Board's laboratories, or it may be ob
tained by persons out in the State un
able to come to Louisville thru their
County Health Officers or other physicians.

At the close of the week all that
prevented an Immediate strike of the

determination of their president, E.
F. Grahle, to keep them at work for
the present. A majority of their gen
eral chairmen had requeued that they
be called together to plan fur a walk
out. The stationary firemen and oilers
decided to quit work on July 17.
CHICAGO was facing an almost
complete tleup of Its local trans
portation facilities. The surface street
car men already had voted to strike
against a watte reduction of 30 cents
an hour, and on Thursday the em
ployees of the elevated roads also
voted for a walkout. The unions
agreed on a Joint policy and plan of
actlou, and there was nope thst fur
ther negotiations might avert a strike.
The situation was complicated by
local politics and the desire of some
of the city officials that the munici
pality should take over the surface
road and operate thetn.
Announcement was made by the
Post Oftlce department that If every
mall train should cease to mo, U
would continue to transport mails by

PREMIER MACKENZIE. KINO of
Canada, went to Washington last
week and submitted to Secretary of
State Hughes sn Interesting snd. on
the face of It. a reasonable proposal.
This was that the Hush Bagot agree
ment between Great liritaln and the
United State concerning the Great
Lakes and the other boundary water
between this country and Canada be
modernized and made iermanent. The
agreement, which has stood for lOfl
years and Is tenninalile on all
months' notice, limits the armament
on the lakes and the 8t. Lawrence to
four vessel of not more thnn I0rt
ton burden, each carrying not more
than one lH-pound gun. Mr. King
thought this an opportune time to
suggest to our government that the
agreement be given permanency In a
formal treaty. Home of the author
ities In Washington thought the Cana
dian prime minister wa "trying to
take a tiler of his own In the dis
armament market for political pur
poses." '
NOTWITHSTANDING the trong
opposition of France. It pteared
probable the allied reparations com
mission would grant Germany' for
mal request for a moratorium on
cash reparations payments, after the
payment by Iterlln of the Itt.OllO.OtN)
due on July lft. The amount wa re
duced from $12.Ml,i0 by the credit
ing of Germany with f t,tVi,0ii0 on
delivery of coal and dyes. The mora,
torluin asked Is for 30 months and
the prediction was that It would be
granted on condition that the allle
he given control of Germany' Bnaoees
during that period.
The French averted the collapse of
the mark and tlw threatened financial
downfall of Germany Is due to thetJer
mun policy of Issuing unlimited mark
and to extravagunt government ex
penditures, and that the grautlng of a
moratorium would out change the
basic factor. They believe. In fact,
that Germany ha deliberately engt
neeredher ownlnolvency lnorder
to ootain a reduction or too repara
tion bill. Ia Purl It wa ald tbe
chamber of deputies would overthrow
any cabinet that consented to a mora
torium unless there wa a remission
of the allied debt.
AGAIN I SAY
That we do not cobble shoes. We have the best
equipment coupled with our experience and workmanship
which terms us as mechanics NOT COBBLERS.
Compare our work with that of others and you will
agree with us in this; "It's not so much how much you
pay, it's what you get for what you pay."
First class work for those who care.
