CIVIC LEAGUE MEETS The Chic League met In regular session Thursday, September 20th, at the home of Mrs Elbert Evans, on Allison Avcouo with a large attend ance. Miss Kan Faulkner became a member. During the business session the Cemetery Committee made a full report of what has been done at the City Cornell ry, whut should he done, and what ltvI hoped can bo done in the nc.tr future. All who have given tho qubje'ct any serious thought know unit the tirst tlilnr to be dono Is to get a road built that will bo passable in wet weather. Because It Is possible to carry n cifsltet up the railroad to the cemetery Is no reason why this should have to be one most of the time during the ivlpter season. And a scarcely lees Important need. Is a small chapel where people may go for protection from tho elements and where services can be held In Inclement weather. These two needs aro felt during the had weather and in- the dry summer time tho neeess! ty of a water supply Is felt to main tain tho grounds In any condition of beauty. If the city ater were piped there It would serve both for drlrk Ing water and sprinkling purposes. Tho League hopes to seo these things accomplished feeling as they do that tho present funds cannot be turned to hotter use. Dr. 0. II. Albright, our County Health Officer, gave an address on what tho needs of the county are and how best to meet thorn. Tho one point that needs to stressed Is that all the power Is In the hands of the people to see that the very prac tical lawss are enforced. We have tio laws, they are not enforced, tho Health Officer can only point out tho ne'd Uut the people and that power ful weapon, public sentiment, can see that these laws ire enforced. Dr. Albright's talV-s before the LeaguU i.m alwjys gre-itly appreciated. Tho hostess served delicious Ice, cake and caudles. . Tho next meeting will be at the homo of Mrs. II. II.

THE MATTER WITII KENTUCKY This was tho title ot a lecture giv en In the Court House here last Mon day night by Prof. R. N. IHld.wln, who taught tho Smoky School last year. This lecture was a severe treatment of Kentucky politics, Ken tucky administration of justice and 'Kentucky religion. Nothing like it I has ever been given bofore that .we aro aware of. Whllo the strong array of facts brought by Prof, Datdwln to Indict the Old Kentucky Hume are known jand road of all men, the phraseology ot tho lecture was peculiarly Bald wlnccque. I He Is a forceful speaker, full ot earnestness and eloquence. He is 'In a class by' himself as an orator. He Imitates no one, and singularly enough no one can imitate him. , The Court House Auditorium was ' filled to overflowing with people eager to hear this glfte' on of Ken tucky tell "What's the Matter with Kentucky?" If the audience believed all. the speaker said It must have believed that Kentucky Is mighty sick at the present time and needs a remedy forthwith or a little sooner. : lie said that Kentucky had practl ,cnlly no roads and that roads are the foundation of civilization; that with out a foundation it Is impossible to build an enduring structure. He said that Kentucky's school system places her forty-second from the top In the matter of education, end because of this low educational status we are a very Ignorant people. 1 He said" that Ignorance was the parent of three, bantling's more re pulsive than Itself. These three 'daughters of Ignornnce are called Poverty, Crime and Disease. I He mid we were poor because of road-; or rather because of our im passible mud holes that we call our reads and because of our Ignorance To Illustrate, he said that Lenoir, N. V., with about the same population ,had 7i'l automobiles last May; be cause the peoplo there had tho mon ey to pay for them and had tho roads upon which to run them, A great d".il of the money possessed by Le noir people came to them from the tnuvlsts who spf-nt more than a mil lion dollhrs there eich year. He said tint more than 10,000 of Kentiiek's citizens die each year from preventable disposes, 8.S69 of those dying in the state last year be ing victims of tuberculosis- or: 19 In every 1,000 in North Carolina have It ai.ii only 7 in every 1,000 lu .Wt.shlnglon Slate have it. 4,427 died 'of it in North Carolina lest yo,tr. Ho asked: "Is Kentucky sick?" He "ii! the ruport of the Ame-I-i"jii ll.ir AMoWatitm showed tlut in 1919 thire were 9 murders per LnOjLAOO Inhabitants in England. .Canada for the same year showed IS , murders per million. Chlcnro show- 'ed 110 murhr for 1,000,000 whlh? dear old crime ridden Kentucky showed 115 murders per million In- t habitants. He asked again: "Is Ken jtueky sick?" I Yes, Kentucky Is sick, mentally, phvslcally, morally, spiritually and . financially. Vet tho Kentucklans have the best blood and thn best' brains of any people on the fuco of the eirth. "What's tho reinejy for Kcn tuel.j's Ills? Here It Is. There are live stcp-i necessary to make Ken tuekv a tew state. These steps are: ."1. Get a Mslon of what Kentucky 'ought to be. With all Kentucky's lesources. Including good blood and brains. Kentucky ought to stand al.e.-.d of every slato In the Union. Why not? j "2, Teamwork to bring the vision of the New Kentucky Home Into the realm of reality; teacher and binker aud cver$ citizen to unite into an i army of progress to boost Kentucky, Throw away your hammer and g",t a horn, "3. Trnver is the most efficacious power In all this world. If Kentiick Ijiis had n great deal more re'lglon we would have much more ability to solve our problems. Prayer and unit ed effort will always win anythii.g that ought to ho won. "4, Pay for what you wan. If you waut Kentucky to become the best stato In America you must pay tho price. You can't buy a diamond for a nickel any morn. Raise road taxes and school taxes till you get roads and schools. Pay your preach cr enough to enable them to preach At present we have 'poor pay 'and poor preach' as the nigger preacher once said, "E. Then Kentucky must be ad vertised better than It has ever been advertised bofore. Every man 'ind evory woman In North Carolina Is an advertiser and the result Is that every town has from one to a doz en factories, and tourists spend In that state each year more than one hufndrfcd tons of silver money. ' "A vision, teamwork, prayer, pay ing and advertising will remove the stigma ot bad roads, the menace of Ignorance, the Inconvenience o pov erty, the danger ot crime, the horror of preventable disease and the drcud of fearful feuds. "Who am I knocking In this talk' I am knocking the pessimist. I am knocking tho mossback. I am knock ing the knocker. I want you to help mn tfikA thn knnrVr'it tifimmot avov from him and to give to him a horn. Then If he refuses to blow for KVn I tucky's glory, lot's knock him In the head with his own hammer," A SUCCESSFUL SALESMAN M. G.
