(By Harvey M. Eates)
Oh bring me out the turning plow
And make the mouldboard shine,
And get the plow gear ready too:
For now it's plowing time.
Give me, too. the faithful horse
That walks the furrow well,
That knows the plowman's "Gee" and
A horse I would not sell.
Many a day I've watched the soil
Turn before the plow;
Many a root and rock I've struck
This job I know just how.
The growing grass, the budding trees,
I oft looked up to see.
So round and round the field we went
This faithful team and me.
The preparation of the soil
A task that pleasure brought;
For behind the turning plov
I labored in noble thought.
The city life I've tasted since.
With all its many beauties;
It takes away the quiet toil,
It gives perplexing duties.
Though now I live the life I planned
In happy plow-boy days.
And meet the problems of a man,
Who seeks mankind to raise.
I often wish for just a day
In which to turn the sod;
To walk behind the turning plow
And think the thoughts of God.

GATHERING AT LOUISVILLE
Program Committee of K. E. A. Ex-
tremely Fortunate In Securing Serv
ices of Many Distinguished Educators
and Speakers of National Reputation.
Partial List Given Here.
If never there, you ought to go.
If ever there, you'll want to go.
The program committee of the Ken
tucky Educational association -lias been
extremely fortunate In securing the
services of practically all the promi
nent speakers thnt were originally se
lected for the gathering In Louisville
on April 30 and May 1. 2 and 3. The
music will be quite varied, as It Is
planned to have high school glee clubs,
class choruses and organ recitals.
Before becoming president of the
Armour Institute of Technology of Chi
cago Dr. Gmisaulus occupied some of
the largest pulpits In that city.
Whether Dr. Gunsaulus talked In his
church or In one of Chicago's great
theaters, he always had a large audi
ence to listen to him say big things In
n splendid, big way.
Dr. Gunsaulus' lecture dates have
carried him all over the counry In the
winter, and during the summer he Is
always In demand as n popular Chau
tauqua talker. One of the finest things
about Dr. Gnnsnulus Is that, although
he Is popular, he has never failed to say
strong, vigorous things.
Colonel Henry Exall.
It will be an Inspiration to the trus
tees who attend the Kentucky Educa
tional association to listen to Colonel
Exall of Texas. Last January the
Commercial club of Louisville had Colo
nel Exall as the speaker at the annual
Xew Year gathering and he simply
electrified the men present
Something over two years ago Colo
nel Exall decided that It was time for
Texas to take care of her soil. Now,
DR. FBAXK W. GUXSATJLUS.
when Colonel Exall decides things
ought to be doue the things usually
have a way of getting done. He at
once inaugurated the Texas Industrial
congress, which offered $10,000 in
gold as prizes for crops In all parts of
Texas. It was soon evident that the
$10,000 In gold was the least expensive
part of the undertaking for the various
contestants must be kept In touch with
each other and the congress. The un
dertaking cost $30,000 for the first
year. Colonel Exall raised the funds.
This year 4,000 men, women, boys
and girts contested for the prizes and
the whole state is awake to the fact
that results are being produced. In
fact this feeling has become so strong
that a group of business men are pre
paring to finance the Texas Industrial
congress for a period of three years.
Dr. Charles Evens.
Dr. Charles Evans is president of the
State Normal school at Edmond, Okla.
He Is a transplanted Kentucklan, and
like any number of transplanted Ken
tucklans be has made good In the state
of his adoption. He grew iip with the
country, and grew up big. In fact he
has grown so big that he Is now being
spoken of as the next state superin
tendent of Oklahoma.
His new book, "Growing a Life,"
published by Rand, McNally & Co., is
receiving favorable comment from
prominent educators In all parts of the
country. It will probably be adopted
as one of the Kentucky reading circle
books for the ensuing year.
Dr. Alston Ellis.
Another ex-Kentucklan on the pro
gram of the Kentucky Educational as
sociation is Dr. Alston Ellis, president
of the Ohio university at Athens. For
twelve years he lias been making his
tory at the University of Ohio, so he
is sure to have something worth while
to say to the teaching force of his home
It Is said that his love for Kentucky
has never been dimmed by his service
oat of the state. In fact it is rumored
that he will build a handsome home
at Fort Thomas, Ky., where he will
reside after leaving tie university In

Professor John Lee Coulter, expert

loss sustained by the southern farmers
because of lack of co-operation.
The crops of the southern farmers

It is estimated that the southern

All of this tremendous waste of mon

Versailles Is finishing a successful
year in co-operntive work with its Far

summer 119 farmers and stockmen

that the union can do very little as a

past year has been as a buying agent;

amount to about $43,000. Large
amounts of wire fencing, field seeds,

been bought both from jobbers and

One Of George D. Burdett's Reminiscenses
Mr. Genrge D. Burdett who isspend
1 ing a short time in Lancaster in the
interest of the Central Life Insurance
Co., has Lancaster history as lar back
as before the war readily at hi3 ton
gues end. Fond of telling an anecdote,
and with an interesting one ever ready
to tell, he relates the following, which
was suggested to him by the column
published in last week3 Record taken .
from the Lancaster New3 published
during the prevalence of cholera here
"When the cholera broke out in 1873
every minister of the Gospel deserted
Lancaster except Uncle Washington
Lusk; Uncle Washington, although
possessed of a black skin, had a heart
as warm and true as many of those
wh'o were far his superior in mental
attainments and whose skins were
white; he interpreted the Scriptures in
his own simple way to the very best uf
his abilities, and often to the conster
nation of hi? fold He held the un
stinted esteem of all classes, both white
and colored, because of the fact that
he was undoubtedly a Godly man as
well as an upright, good citizen. This
esteem and respect was augmented by
the fact that he did not desert his post
when the scourge of pestilence visited
the community and the people stood
sadly in need of spiritual ministration.
One Sabbath while the plague was
raging Uncle Washington held services
at the court touse, his audience was
composed of all the able bodied colored
people of the community, liberally in
terspersed with the white people who
were able to attend or had not sought
refuge in flight Uncle Washington
took his text upon the visitation of the
plague, and after haranguing his au
dience for some time, he gave this ver
sion of its cause: 'Look hyar you
niggers, do you know the good Lawd
done sent this here cholera on you all
as a punishment for yo'sins; yo' all
done left the farms and the country
and quit work, done come here to town
laying round, a gamblin and a stealin
chickens and everything triflin' and the
Good Lawd is a punishin of yo ail for
it A colored brother in the audience
called out:-'Krer Washington de white
folks don't steal chickens and do all
dis meanness you 13 talkin' about and
some of dem done hab de cholera, now
why did the Good Lawd done visit it on
dem? The good old brother had evi
dently anticipated just such an in
terrogatory, and was ready with an
apt retort: 'Hoi' on dar nigger, hoi'
on dar, jou can't get aroun dis thing
that a way, de good Lord done know
his business, He want some witnesses
to you niggers meanness, dats why he
done' flicted some of the good white
folks with dis here disease.' The in
quisitive brother was awed into silence
and the remainder of the congregation
were forcibly impressed by Uncle
