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. Owens and tho
Music Department will present a
pleasing and instructive program.

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
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
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
"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

Then If he refuses to blow for KVn
I tucky's glory, lot's knock him In the
head with his own hammer,"
