The week has been disignated as "Home Coming and Reunion Week' by the members of the league, which plans to hold reunions of all kinds. Among the most interesting of the reunions to Kentucklans are to be those of former State Administra tions and legislatures. These are to be held September 14th, "Governor's Day." The administrations of Governor Edwin P. Morrow, Governor Stanley. Governor McCreary, Governor Will son, Governor Beckham and of Gov ernor Bradley are to be represented. Where the Chief Executive of the administration la living, he has been named chairman of the reunion of officials, as have the living Lieutenant-Governors and Speakers of the House of Representatives, of the re unions of their houses.

RING WAS REMINDER OF ENGAGEMENT (New York Sun) "A rinir Is a circular ins ument pi-ted upon the noses of h'g and the fingers of women to restrain them and bring them to subjection."' "What is that noise?" the good wife asked, In HUilden terror quacking; Her husband soothed her: "Do not fear, Tis but tho dawn a-breaking;" "Alas, alas." the wife cried out, "Thut hired girl needs a thumping, She'll have us out of house and home. She's alwuys dropping something.'' We are reminded that there is still another advantage in going without h coat or vest in hot weather. We don't have to carry so many things mound in our pocket. The strongest of hands are without value unless there is a brain capable of directing their movement. World News Michael Collins is dead. He was head of the army of the Irish Free State. He was aftftaasinated in the street by men who stood for the Re public and who afterwards franklv confessed the crime. This, along with the death of Griffith, has robbed the government of its best men, for Griffith was regarded as the brain of the Free State; so Collins was regared as Its strong right arm.. The great world exposition is to be opened early in September at Rio de Janeiro. Secretary Hughes has sailed for tha exposition to assist in the opening of it. This exposition, no, doubt, v.l awaken a greater in terest in South America and will at. tract visitors from all over the world. A famous rain-maker, Hatfield, by name, who claims to be able tJ break drouths, is reported to be in Rome, Italy, negotiating with the Pope to break the long drouth which has been distressing Italy for many weeks. Fortunately, Kentucky doe1! not need him. Last week there was strong hope that the hard coal strike was on the eve of being adjusted, but the ex pected settlement could not be ar ranged after all, and so the strike still continues. The railroad strike is unsettled. It is still being held up on the question of seniority. As an illustration of the seriousness, Henry Ford haa an nounced that all his plants must be closed up September 16th on account of inability to ge( coal transported to his works. This will throw thou sands of men out of work on the verge of winter. There is strong sentiment in favor of the government taking over the railroad lines and the hard coal lines in order to handle this emergency. Soft coal production U increasing rapidly now, but the rmtt strike prevents proper distribution. PROFESSOR DIES IN SLEEP William A, Dunning of Columbia Unk varsity wss a Ford Suit Witness.

KENTUCKY RIFLEMEN DEFEAT ALL COMERS Frankfort, Ky., Aug. 29. Kentuc ky's 149th Infantry outshot all the National Guard regiments in the United States on the range at Camp Knox and the cavalry, the Fifty-third and Fifty-fourth Machine Gun Squad rons are "the best looking National Guard cavalry troops in the country," Col. Charles H. Morrow, U. S. A said on his return tonight from Camo Henry Knox, voicing, he said, the opinion of the regular army officers present. CH For appearance of the cavalry he has the word of Col. Frederick W. Shaw, senior inspector. Fifth Corps Area, Columbus Barracks, Ohio, who expressed his views to Colonel Mor row in those words. The 14!Mh qualified 2!U per cent of its iersonneI as sharpshooters, marksmen or experts, compared to 10 per cent for one Imliuna regiment of infantry, 9 per rent for another, and 8 per cent for the engineers. Ohio infantrymen did little better. "Both W. O. Reed, senior cavalry instructor, and I were greatly pleased with the work and showing of th Kentucky guardsmen," Colunel Mor row said. To hear some folks cuss the world you'd think it was as bad as if they themselves hal made it. Even a lazy man la energetic at quitting time.
