Mr. Lebkuecher, director of the
Third Infantry Band, says that the
people, have so highly appreciated
the series of six open air concerts
that they will be continued this
month and through part of Novem
ber, if the weather continues warm.
He says Ms band had just as soon
practice beforejhe People as in their,
room,; and Mg as the weather
pertriitW&ey will play every Tues
day night at the Metcalfe lot. The
crowd tout Tuesday nignt was prob
ably the. largest of tbe six nights of

Open To Eastern Star Dele
gates During Grand Chapter
. Meeting.
The Grand Chapter of the Order
of Eastern Star will meet in this city
Oct. 23 to '25 and about 400 lady dele
gates from all over the state are ex
pected. At the meeting of the Elks
Lodge Tuesday night, the Lodge by
a unanimous vote extended the priv
ileges of the club rooms to the visi
tors during their stay in the city.
Hugged To Death.
Samuel J. Johnson, a Georgia ne
gro preacher, who had been holding
meetings, ia dead as a result of being
hugged to tight, according to a
dispatch. The preacher created so
much enthusiasm over religion that
members of his flock, both males
and femalee, rushed to the pulpit
while the services were going on
and began to embrace him, shouting
and singing as they squeezed, until
the minister collapsed and death, resulted.
From what Mr. Chiltcn says there
i a general misapprehension as to
the cahges to be made at the two
Stattpmons. Whilst th i Frankfort
prison will be known as a house of
reform for minor violations of the
1W and the Eddyville prison will
rVtaii its present name, there will
be' no exchange of prisoners. The

the move he might have stumbled
up on Celtic, mythology, and after
seeing that Avalon was Known by
Brae 8B' "the Land of the Blessed,"
or the "Isle of Souls," he might
have c included that his place of rest
forludiesin town shopping could
not be better named than by calling
it "The Avalon." He blight have
chosen'a word that could be more
easily remembered but .not a pret

flavor of romance and a tinge of
poetry and slips off" the toWgUe as
easily as a jelly-fish out of the hand.
The name is all right and the
building will be all right when com
plettd. The work on the building
has been going on during the sum
mer, but it will take some time yet
to complete it. The lecture room
will be a great resort for different
kinds of home entertainments, lec
tures, concerts receptions, commit
tee meetings, or for any purpose
that ladies may choose to use it for,
and without price. We know the
Hopkinsville people will appreciate
the. efforts of Mr. Metcalfe in fur
nishing a place of this kind for the
many purposes for which it will be
adopted. It is like giving a town a
park or a hospitai or a library. If
Mr. Metcalfe were a wealthy man
though, the city might have all those
things through his liberality,
The man who is always gathering
and never giving is not the happy
man. It is he that considers the
needs of others and lives for the
purpose of helping everybody that
he can. Such a man is the one that
is building "The Avalon." Whilst
he asks no one to "chip in" and help
him carry out his project for the
benefit of the people, he does ask
their support in an indirect way.
Why aaybody should fail to encour
age hus in his laudable undertaking
we fail to understand. He only asks
those wko need laundry wqrk to go
to him and let him do it. He gives
you a ticket calling for a certain
amount of work and the amount you
pay goes toward paying for the
building that he is putting up. It

Main Street, Hopkinsville7 .
WiU really be the people's building
and every man, woman and child
should have a brick in it. Not one
man in a thousand would do this for
his town people.
. It is gratifying to note that many
have liberally responded to Mr. Met
calfe's call on the people to help
not himself but themselves. All
that he askd is a continuance and be
will do the rest.
Some day, when jthis puplic-spirit
ed, ever strenuous man has accomp
lished his task and the passing years
have told upon his zeal for others,
when old Hopkinsville has become
what he wants to see it, he will be
pointed put as one of the men who
helped to make Hopkinsville what it
is. Surely such a citizen will be
honored and the tireless energies of
his young manhood, spent for the
upbuilding of the town and his de
sire to improve the opportunities of
all, will be appreciated, and "The
Avalon" will stand as a monument
to his industry and pluck. Yes, we
say pluck, for if he did not have this
element of success of immeasurable
quantity in his make-up, he never
would have undertaken what he soon
is to accomplish.
He has had his struggles in getting
a start in the world, but these strug
gles have made a man of him. Diffi
culties and discouragements have
often blocked his way, but his inher
ent strength of character and in
domitable will power have always
swept them away. All who help him
help themselves. Handing him $5
or .$10 is simply helping yourself,
with compound interest, for he gives
you back full value and you, in a
sense, become a partner in "The
