to do the right thing too often has been
exemplified by would be reformers and
pioneers in every progressive movement;
and the administration of every new de
partment of government, which lnitates
the regulation of any kind of enterprise,
necessarily subjects itself to the criti
cisms of those who resent restrictive in
novations in their business affairs. Such
embarrassment as this could have been
anticipated in the inauguration of the
State Banking Department, dealing as it
must with the most sensitive commer
cial institution we have. The law
charged the Department with enforcing
regulation, devised, so the Court of
Appeals construed them; primarily for
protection of depositors; and yet these
regulations must be enforced in such a
manner as not to injure the very per
sons intended to be its benefioiaries, by
creating unnecessary disturbance of
credit and resources.
That the first and probationary year
of the Department has passed with the

banks strengthened instead of disturbed,

Sunday's program included a thought
ful address by Hon. John B. McFerran,
of Louisville, on the consolidation of the
churches, and another by Rev. E. B.
Barnes, of Richmond, on rural churches.
Some one in town last night asked a
man who had attended the Chautauqua
at Waco if it was success, to which he
smiled and replied, "Success doesn't
spell it at all. It is a huge success and
you should go out and see foi yourself.
"Of course I knew they were to have
big program all right," the one who
had not been said.
That is not what I am talking about
at all What I mean is the spirit that
growing among the people about
Waco. You can have a program and a
big one anywhere; but the growth of a
neighborhood into the spirit of a pro
gram is another matter."
The Chautauqua is a huge success,
and it was a success from the opening
talk on Sunday morning when Dr. Dex
ter, of Washington, D. C. gave a splen
did address on the possibihtes of the ru
ral church. Later in the day Dr. Por
ter, of Lexington, and Dr. Barnes dis
cussed the same topic.
Monday the program was full to over
flowing with good things. Joe Wing,
the alfalfa king and capital story teller,
told the story of the redemption of his
old home place by growing alfalfa. Dr.
Dexter talked entertainingly concerning
the essential points ot a good dairy cow
and then took the farmers out and dem

heifers which had been driven in from
nearbv farms. Mr. Montgomery, of
Berea, led a delightful round table dis

At night Joe Wing talked again and Nat

co-operation which has been developed

ed to cover co-operative shipping and
selling of fruits and vegetables. lie
spoke of one county in West Virginia
which had grown rich by such means.
Dr. G. D. Smith's lecture, profusely il
lustrated with pictures of his own or
chard in Rockcastle county, was a de
light from start to finish. Great interest
has grown out of the beautiful illustrat
ed hymns and songs led by Dr. Crabbe.
This morning almost two hundred
school children came to the Chautauqua
to spend the day. Mr. McFerran, who
made this Chautauqua possible, gave a
heartfelt plea for the children of Ken
tucky. It was a Ulk which came from
big heart counclled by a business
brain. Everv one was touohed by it.
Later Joe Wing gave a lecture and Mr.
Kinney, of Lexington Station, addressed
the big crowd tender the tent.
