Superintendent of Public Instruction Barksdale Uamlett is of the opinion that the act of 1012 granting school suf frage to women did not bestow on them the right to vole for candidates for County School Superintendent, either in the primary or election. According to his construction, of the law the Leg islature did not make the County Su perintendent a common school district official; but left him a county official. to be voted for like any other county official by the constitutionally qualified voters. In a letter sent to a number of candidates for County Superintendent who sought his opinion he said; "I favor now, as I always have, giv ing the qualified women voters of the Slate the right to vote in these elec tions. I regret that the act of lvI2 appears, however, not to have been suf ficient to bestow this right." Grehan's Gritty Grindings. (Paragraphs Lex. Herald.)

A Chicago minister is authority for the statement that a man with an in come of $1,000 a day can not be relig ious, but as a matter of fact a man with that size income can be so "blamed" agreeable he can keep the church folk from saying ugly things about him if he will only relax a bit when he sees the contribution box coming down the aisle. Murderer of Harry Bowman Captured. Henderson Holt, who stabbed and killed Harry Bowman, of Livingston, two weeks ago, was arrested and taken to the London jail Friday. The srest was made by Thomas Clark and John Hensley in JacKson county. Clark and Hensley will recive a re ward of (500 offered by Bowman's broth er, Charles Bowman, and if Holt is con victed they will receive $200 offered by the State; Holt did not resist arrest, declaring that he stabbed Bowman io save his bis own life. . The tragedy occurred at Cruize, Lau rel county, at the place of "Uncle Wel come" Mullins, where many sportsmen visit each summer, and the trouble is said to have arisen over Holt's stock gelling into Rowman's orops.
