HuoBevolt for not pub lishing his enmpnign expense account. A Denver woman koops her savings in an icebox, presuma? bly in the hope that some day she'll have a cool million. Of absent minded men the moBt notuble is tiie one who forgot ull about a fishing trip while reading t It e political news. The average in a n is not ulurmed by the statement that there are a million and a half microbes on u dollar bill. He doesen'l keep it long enough to inner danger. Still, the coinage of a half cent coin would give the type? writer girls the opportunity to use their "I" key oftener. Boston is to have a hospital for victims of the "blues." Would it not be cheaper to buy them tickets so they could gel out of Boston? In Kansas City the other duy the wife of a painless dent? ist horsewhipped his office girl. The scene is reported to have been painful. An exchange says that Con? vention tickets in Chicago were so high Hint in some instances it was cheaper to buy n dele? gate to get one. The Wise News says that in point of real grealness William J. Bryan is in a class all unto himself iiml Theodore Roose? velt is his closest neighbor. Cone Johnson, of Texas, hit the nail square on the head when he said. "All I know is that the tight is on; thai Bryan is on one side, Wull street on the other." A mighty cheer greeted Johnson's statement Norton News. The new postofllce for Bris tol, Vu., which is to bo separ ate from and independent of the Bristol (Touu,) ottice, is to be established soon.

Dr. Wiley's statement was made at a meeting which organized tho Wilson .Mursball Democratic Club of the District of Columbia. Odo day's shipment of beans from Bardwell brought $2,000 to tho farmers of Carlislo coun? ty. And that one did not ex? haust tho supply by any meaus. This looks a good deal like easy money, but there are lots of farmers in Kentucky that are buying beans wheu they ought to be raising them at homo. The same can be said v/itli regard to a number of other agricultural products. Truck farming is largely a neg? lected industry in Kentucky.? Krnnkfort Journal. It is also a neglectod indus? try in Virginia, and horo iu Wiso county large sums of money could be mado in truck? ing overy year, whereas nonrly ovory thing that in consumed in the trucking line is shipped in from other States. .More people should take! more interest in the small farm and truck raising in Wiso county. A greater demand for country produce Will soon be here and hotter murketn with It. Oot busy nhd be ready when the "hand wngon" comes along.? Wise Virginian. You can always watch tho fellow who is cruel to his horse or dog, and you can always judge the disposition and char? acter of n person by his treat? ment of dumb animals.

ECdltor Post: How much ionger are the kind and humane people of this town to have their feelings lacerated by the merciless and brutal beating of horses on the streets, especially blind homes, of which there are sev? eral. Tho unmerciful lashing of horses drawing heavy loads like mud up hill and down is tho rule and not the exception. Kither we should stop this or we should stop sending otr monjay to the heathens of other lauds. Human Citizen. NOTICE. Any family Jcoeping normal boarders can buy groceries at our storo at >r> per cent oif regu? lar prices duriug thu month of July, and any teacher can buy dress goods, shoes and clothing or anything in our store during July at 5 per cent off. ?. C. Wolfe. Normal Notes. The impression is gaining grouud both in town and in the classrooms that the student body is getting more out of the normal this yeur than has ever beeu accomplished before. One reason for this is that the day's work is divided into six hour periods, three beforenoon and three in the afternoon, which keeps the pupils pretty closely coutined at the school building. Another potent factor in the success of the present normal is that the teachers are congen? ially located, and can study to bettor udvunlago. Several times the remark has been made since the opening of tho normal by various and sundry housekeepers, (who agreed rather reluctantly to the local manager's request for room and board for the normal students) that they are delighted with the students who are with them this year, and so far, no complaints have reached Prof. Voting from dissatisfied board? ers. In the enrollment this year there is an unusually large per? centage of young men. Here? tofore, the feminine contingent has been in the great majority, and tlui management regards it as encouraging that there are so many young men taking work in the present normal. The entertainment given Friday night by Prof. Daven? port in the school auditorium was very laughable, and it was regretted that a large audience was not. present to see that, Professor "make faces". As we go to press this week, the enrollment has reached U'.i7. t if this number Wise leads with 93, Scott, a close second, has 86, Lei', 07, ftuBsell, 24, Dickon son, 20, Buchanan, 4, and Tnze Weli, 2, Alining the "also there" are two from I,etcher County, Kentucky.

'Mrs. Caldwoll will speak at the Chapel on Monday morn ing. Mrs. Caldwoll is President of t h e Static Federation of Woman's Clubs. The normal pupils had the pleasure of listening to Mrs Parrot!

In all the Stale Hoard of Examiners hail one hundred and twelve papers to correct and they were kept busy until late yesterday afternoon. The percentage of successful aspirants is far smaller this year than last, when seventy of the one hundred and one con? testants made the required average. The percentage of successful candidates this year is about forty six while lusl year it was nearly seventy. It may have been due to a harder examination or there may have been among tli" aspirants more lirst year men who took the examinations merely to see what they could do.
