Nature in Mid-Winter.
June, crowned with roses, and
October with her riot of color,
have their messages. But in the
silence and whiteness of mid-winter
Nature is seen in her most
haunting way. The great snow
world is unrelieved in its dazzling
whiteness save for the faintly trac
ed tracks of a rabbit, the tracery
of bullrushes or reeds, and a blush
of pink at sunset. The silent lake
locked in by brooding hills, pres
ents a somber stretch of pallid ice.
The barren elm trees whisper ti
tanic secrets in the winter twi
light. The branches of the firs
and yews are laden down with
clods of snow. Each little twig
and stalk along the wayside is a
crystal wand as if the magic hand
of Jack Frost had suddenly trans
formed it into silver. Hedgerows,
gateposts and stubble take on fan
tastic shapes. Through the arch
ed boughs of the trees you look
upon u vignette of purple skies,
white plumes and brown fretwork.
The world has taken on nun's veil
ing and has gone into retreat,
maybe in preparation for the resur
rection soon to come. Nature is a
vestal virgin, thoughtful and si
lent. In the village churchyard
the snow fairies are covering with
a whito mantle the low mounds
even as the birds covered with
leaves the soft forms of the babes
in the woods. Collier's Weekly.

get enough good plots to supply the ever increasing demand. They
are offering $100 and more for single scenarios, or written ideas.
Nearly all the big film companies, the buyers of photoplays, are
located in or near NEW YORK CITY. Being right on the spot, and
knowing at all times just what sort of plots are wanted by the pro
ducers, our SALES DEPARTMENT has a tremendous advantage ,
over agencies situated in distant cities.
We have received many letters from the big film manufacturers,
us to send photoplays to them. We want more writers and we'll
gladly teach you the secrets of success.
We are selling photoplays written by people who "never
before wrote a line for publication."

Let the fellows count on you;
You'll feel bully when it's through

If you want to make a hit,
Get a name!

Who's to blame?

Change your style!
Throw bouquets instead of rocks

Shun him as you would a ghost;
Meet his hammer with a boast
And a smile.

Mt. Sterling Citizens Testify for

A truthful statement of a Mt. Sterling

convince the most skeptical about the

of kidney ills, use a tested kidney medi

Kidney Pills.
Could you demand more convincing
proof of merit?
Mrs. Laura Willoughby, 17
Strother Street, Mt. Sterling, Ky
says: It is a pleasure to tell of
my experience with Doan's Kidney
Pills as they always give entire
satisfaction. I had pains through
my back and kidneys and at times
I was dizzy and nervous. At night
I was restless and mornings was
weak and tired. A neighbor ad
vised the use of Doan's Kidney
Pills and I procured asupply from
Duerson's Drug Store and their

In a comparative study of State
school systems made by the Rus
sell Sage Foundation,tKentucky is
assigned forty-second place in gen
eral efficiency among the forty
eight States of the Union.
In current expenditure per child
of school ago Kentucky ranks
fortieth; in average value of school
property, thirty-eighth; in average
percentage of attendance, fortieth;
in average annual salary of teach
ers, thirty-third. Theav e rage
percentage of attendance tin Ken
tucky is 63.7. The average an
nual salary of teachers is ($337.
Kentucky provides fifty-seven
days of schooling per year for
every child in the State.
These are some of tho facts
gleaned from a New York dispatch
tellincr of the study made by the
Russell Sage boundation. It is
well that we should occasionally
"see ourselves as others see us."
It is by comparison that we may
. -.
best take note of our progress aid
the showing that is made by Ken
tucky in this exhibit of American
school systems is not such as to
give us pleasure or pride.
It seems hardly believable that
Kentucky, one of the oldest States
of the Union, should be behind so
many other Commonwealths in
educational advancement, but that
such is the case was fully estab
lished, even before the existence
of tho Russell Sage Foundation.
This latest report, therefore, comes
in thel nature of cumulative evi
dence. It merely emphasizes tho
necessity of accelerating the edu
cational campaign.
The people of Kentucky need
some forcible reminders, once in a
while, of tho low school status.
This Russell Sago Foundation re
port comes within that category
and may in that sense bo helpful,
but it is not to be classed as desir-R
able advertising for tho Common
wealth. "Suffered day nnd night tho tor
ment of itching piles. Nothing

Ointment. It cured mo perma
