Illiteracy in Kentucky must cease, or
at leastjbe reduced to the minimum, and
the old state is destined in the near
future to take her place among the
forefront as one of the most enlighten
ed states in the Union. At least such
is to be the case if the efforts of the
educators of the state do not prove
futile. The old adage, that "a bird
that can sing and won't must be made
to sing" is to be put into active prac
tice, and the children of school age in
Kentucky are to be sent to school,
whether they will or no, and what is
much more vital, whether their par
ents will or no. No more "staying at
home to help with the crop" for child
ren of school age. No more hookey
for the kids. If the children are not in
school, the teacher will know the rea
son, then the missing ones will be re
ported to the county superintendent,
who will in turn serve notice on the
parent, and unless the child is sent to
school, not for a day, but regularly,
warrants will be issued and the law ap
plied to the fullest extent. The school
census will be carefully scanned, tab
will be kept on every child, and the
school authorities will see to it that
each and everyone of them are given
the benefit of the advantages for which
the people are taxed, that they receive
every days schooling that is provided
for them by law. This is but right.
There has been too much illiteracy pre
valent in Kentucky in the last decade.
We boast proudly of our enlighten
ment, of our many famous men, beauti
ful women and other things of which
we are justly proud, and then we fall
far below the standard of a great many
other states in the matter of educa
tion. In this aee there is scant excuse
for the keeping of children from school.
Splendid educational facilities are pro-
y;ded for them, and in the cases of the
indigent, even their books are furnish
ed free. Better facilities without
money and without price, to be had for
the taking, Jhan a few years ago, men
now famous jn .our states history work
ed hard for, did farm chores, burned
the midnight oil, did the hardest kind
of manual labor in order that they
might earn sufficient tto .enable them to
secure an .education not so thorough
by half as js to be had now jn pur

We do not believe tba$ there is a
family in Garrand co.urjty jn this pres.
enjt prosperous time who are compelled
to depriye hejr .children of schqoling
because of the fact .that their services
are absolutejy "necessary at home. We
believe ha the new compulsory educa
tion law is a goo.d one, and we hope
andbeUeue fchatjjt wl be apprcig.te.d
by the parents s the sjate and county
and that they wjil heartily co-oRerae
with the school authorities jm .their ef

The signs .of the .times indicate ft,
every ttiiqg points in that.dirgctjqn and
we firmly believe jjhat Gqv. Woodrow
Wilson wiill be elected president of Tjhe
'United Stages B;t the coming Nqvemder
election. But viewing the matter
-ealmiy from an unbiased .standpoint,
the "Sail Moose" sentiment seems Vo
be on the wane, many thee ai;e wljp
believe that considerable of the jpra
gressive strength will go to the
democratic nominee. But the republican
voter is muchly given to hanging round
the door of the Log Cabin, and too

much confidence cannot be placed in
those who have followed the Progress
ive movement for a while, then becoming
tired and seeking other quarters, going
over to the democratic side of the
house, many of them may and doubtless
will do this, but a graat many of them
will return to thfir first love.
In view of this state of affairs,
overconfidence upon the part of the
democrats of the country is a very poor
asset, More men have been beaten be
cause of their over confidence than
those who were doubtful and ran the
race for all there was in it. A true
saying is "that a scared dog runs the
best race", and if the followers of Gov.
Wilson will adopt the tactice of the
scared dog, it will make the race all
the more sure.
Politics are curious and ever changing
and one can never tell just what may
turn up. In the outset Roosevelt
seemed to have the republican side of
it all his own way, but over confidence
is likely to prove his undoing, his
utterances, are beginning to prove
boomerangs and his strength iswaning,
where this strength will go, can not be
foretold, but it is incumbent upon every
democrat to put forth his every efTprt
in behalf of his own candidate, to not
depend upon the divided condition of
the republican party, but on the other
hand do everything possible toward
more strongly cementing his own. Help
the campaign fund along. This is a
campaign which is financed by the peo
ple, be "one of the people".
The calling together of the democratic
editors of the state in conference in
Louisville was a piece of courteous
conduct upon the part of Mr. Camden,
a courtesy which has heretofore been
overlooked by Kentuck politicians, but
when viewed in the proper light, it was
but a common piece of justice. Who
does more to promote the welfare of
the democratic party in this or any
other state than the editors of the
democratic papers. Until Mr. Camden
took the initiative, the editor was
ignored, so long as he supported the
democratic nominees through the
columns of his paper, he was considered
as only doing his duty, and when all
was over received but scant thanks for
his services.
The keynote of Mr. Camden's speech,
the principal message which he bore to
the editors assembled, about sixty in
number, representative newspaper men
from all over th& state, was the necessity
of assisting the campaign fund, and
surely no one realized better than John
Camden, Chairman of the campaign Com
mittee, that the most essential assistance
to be obtained in to in the money raising
effort was the hearty cooperation of the
state press, the medium by which the
urgent necessity will be voiced to the
people who are so nobly assisting in the
raising of the popular fund.
The newspaper man is hnman, he
appreciates recognition as well as his
more pretentious neighbor, and not one
of the press boys but will voice the
appreciation of the courtesy and kindly
forethought of Mr. Camden in
inaugurating the cust on of calling them
into the party councils.
Already doing everything within their
power to further the interests of the
democratic ticket, if such a thing be
possible, Mr. Camden's conference will
serve to stimulate and cause them to
become even more zealous in the good

Circular Issued By The State Board Of
Health Of Kentucky.
To the health Officials, Physicians and
People of Kentucky:
The unusual prevalence of diphtheria
in many sections of the State makes it
the duty of this Board to again call at
tention to the best known methods of
preventing the occurence and spread of
this disease.
1. Diphtheria is both contagious and
infectious, and is distinctly a preven
table disease, being easily limited to
the first case or cases. When it gets
away from the primary cases and
makes its escape upon the community
somebody is to blame. The sooner we
accept this as a sanitary maxim the
sooner we shall begin to do our duties
as individuals and communities.
2. On account of its frequency and
fatality this disease is of far more im
portance to the people of Kentucky
than smallpox, yellow fever or cholera.
3. When a child has sore throat,
and especially if diphtheria is in the
neighborhood, it should be immediately
; separated from other children until a
competent physian has seen it and de
cided whether or not it is affected with
a contagious disease.
4. If diphtheria, str'ctly isolate the
case at once, in an up stairs room if
possible, and as disconnected as practi
cable from the living and sleeping
apartments of other children. No one
except the physician and nurse should
enter the room, and they should take
every precaution not to carry the in
fection to others.
5. The board urges the hypoder
matic use of a standard antitoxin, such
as Alexander's, in at least 5,000-unit
doses, as soon as the disease is recog
nized or seriously suspected, and that
this dose should be repeated or doubled
within twelve hours unless marked im
provement has taken place. If case is
seen after the first twenty-four hours
use from 7 to 25000 units the first dose,
depending opon severity. It recom
mends that immunizing doses of 1000
units be used for all children, and es
pecially for all inexperienced relatives
acting as nurses who have been seri
ously exposed.
6. Placard the house, and keep all
other children, all having the care of
children, and all who go where children
are, away from it. Notify the health
officer of the town or county within
twenty-four hours, as the law requires,
and he will co-operate with the physi
cian and family to keep the disease
from spreading.
7. The discharges from the mouth
and nose, which especially contain the
germs of the disease, should be receiv
ed on soft cloths and burned, and other
discharges should be disinfected, and
all refuse from the sick room burned.
All utensils used in feeding the sick
should hi washed separately from other
dishes, and should remain soms time in
boiling water.
8. Disinfect all bed and body cloth
ing, and other like things, as soon as
removed, by immersion for at least six
hours in a solution of chloride of lime,
four ounces to the gallon of wat r.
They may then be wrung out and put
in the wash. Remember, however,
that no disinfectant in the occupied
sick room can do away with the neces
sity for abundant fresh air and sun
light. 9. The isolation of the patient should
continue for ten days after all trace of
the disease has disaapeared, and until
he has nad a disinfecting bath and been
clad in garments which have not been
in the sick room. No person from a
honse where there is diphtheria should
be permitted to go into public assem
blies, and no child from a house where
this disease has prevailed should be
allowed to attend school without a cer
tificate from the health officer that it
is safe to do so.
10. After complete recovery, or
death, always thoroughly disinfect the
room and its contents, preferably with
nascent formaldehyde, or where this is
not available, by burning three pounds
of sulphur, moistened with alcohol, for
each l.Qyo cubic feet of space, pre
viously stopping all openings, and
dampening the floor, bedding and cloth
ing ana leavjijg me. room tigntly closed
for twelve hours. The room should
than be thoroughly ventilated, and all J
$22.50, $25.00 and $27.00
ledges, woodwork, etc., washed with
strong soap and rinsed with a disinfect
ing solution.
11. In case of death, the body should
be wrapped in a sheet saturated in a
disinfecting solution and buried with
out public service. In giving notice of
death newspapers should state that it
was from diphtheria, and that children,
and those having the care of children,
should not attend the funeral.
12. To be effective the precautions
herein suggested should be rigidly ob
served. Imperfect isolation and disin
fection are worse than useless, giving
rise only to a false and misleading
sensd of security.
13. County and municipal boards of
health have full authority under our
laws to enforce these rules, and will
fall short of their duty if they fail to
do so.
14. Arrangements have been per
fected under which county or city
boards of health may prQcure Alex
ander's antitoxin at wholesale prices
through this Board. A constant sup
ply of fresh antitoxin is always on
hand at Bowling Green. Details fur
nished upon application.
Copies of this circular, and of similar
ones in regard to scarlet and typhoid
fever and consumption, for free dis
tribution, may be had upon application
to the Board at Bowling Green.
By order of the Board.

Remove Every Window and Substitute
Wire Netting for Ventilation
of Hen House.
It does not require much hard work
to keep a flock in good condition in
the summer, but absolute neglect will
often completely destroy the winter
egg-producing qualities of not only
the old hens, but the pullets as well.
If you have not removed every win
dow in the chicken house and substi
tuted wire netting, in order to provide
perfect ventilation, do so at once.
Better that the chicks roost in the
trees than that they be confined in a
vermin-ridden building.
Body lice will worry a flock to
death, or so nearly so as to destroy
its usefulness. These can be killed,
but not easily.
Good insect powder will do the
business. It should bo applied with a
powder spray by one person, while
another holds the fowls by the legs
so that the powder may reach every
part of the skin through the dis
turbed feathers.
Small Pen In Town Is Absolutely Not
Suitable for Rearing Meat For
Christmas Dinner.
For those persons in town who are
thinking of raising a turkey or two in
their back yards there is trouble in
store. The back yard or pen is not
the place for a bird which refuses to
be domesticated, W. A. Lippincott,
head of the poultry department at the
Kansas Agricultural college, says.
The farm is the place to raise tur
keys. They must have a good range.
During the first few months it is bet
ter to give them no grain, but let them
forage and eat bugs. If small turkeys
are cared for in this way, the fatality
will be much less.
Professor Lippincott suggests that
yor. let some farmer take your young
turkeys and rear them. You might ar
range to pay a little rent to a farmer
for allowing your birds to roam in his
pastures. Then, along about Thanks
giving, all you have to do is to go out
and harvest your turkey.
Shelter Is Provided by Means of Sail
Cioth Where Trees or Bushes Are
Found Scarce.
By means of a sail cloth, duck, or
factory cotton curtain shade may easi
ly be supplied chickens where there
are no trees or bushes. In such a case

Keeping Birds Graded.
Be sure to grade your birds accord
ing to size as tho weeks pass. When
you find that some aro outstripping
the others, tako them away and put
them with birds of their own size. If
you have toe-marked the feet and have
put on legbands,, you will be able to
tell the facts regarding them at any
Here is where the value of records
comes In. Keep an accurate record of
every hatch, and then grade the birds
without having to feel that If you miz
them up you will not be able to tell
them again when you want to know
certain things about them.
The contented and happy hen is the

Round pebbles will not do for rough
edges to grind the grain.

Imitate nature as closely as possible
and your turkey crop will pay cut.

A floorless brood coop on clean,
dry ground is better than one with u

The average hen outlives her use
fulness in two years, and is more prof-
! itable sent to market.
Whether kept for hatching or mar
ket eggs ought to be kept free from
any form of moisture.
When eggs are soft shelled the hens
are either too fat or do not get enough
mineral matter ir! their feed.
Don't neglect tho water supply as
plenty of water helps to keep the
hens in good laying condition.
A safe rule to follow in chick feed
ing is to give them just as much as
they will clean up nicely at each feed.
Th incubator Is no longer an ex
periment, and tho demand for poultry

The "utility" bfrd is one that is not
