The State very generously aids ; in this important factor of educational work by giving dollar for dollar for a sum of not less than Sin on w mnyo than . S IS. 00. during any one year, for the estab lishment or maintenance of a school library. The selection) of books Is restricted to a list approved by the State Board of Education. The Division of Library Extension, of tho State Department of Public Instruction, of which Mrs. Pearl Wil liams Kelley is the director, has "for its slogan this year: "A library in every public school in Tennessee. On that day every public school in the State is expected to raise funds to establish or supplement the school library. From the unusual interest and enthusiasm with which many teachers are already waging the campaign for more and better school libraries, it shall not fall far short of the mark. The most imperative duty of the State is the education of the future citizen. The business of the school is to give inspiration, as well as in formation. An educational system which contents itself with teaching to read, and then fails to see that the best reading is provided, is as inconsistent and absurd as to teach children the expert use of the knife, fork and spoon, and then provide them with no fod. Present indications point to a State-wide observance of "Library Day," and that the year 1914-15 will be 'notable for the more systematica use of well established libraries; for improving poor ones, and for placing a new library in every one of the lonesome schools that have been waiting so longe for someone to "bring in the books."

The register of the Kentucky State Historical Society has just been is sued and contains a full report of the work of the society for the past four months. The Register is published in January, May and September of ach year by the editors, Mrs. Jennie C. Morton, editor-in-chief, and Hon. H. V. McChesney, associate editor, and has a wide circulation in this and adjoining States. Several new writers have allied themselves with the many contributors to the Reg ister and their work can be seen in this issue. An interesting feature of the Reg ister is a sketch of the life of Gov ernor James B. McCreary by Mrs. Jennie C. Morton. It begins with his graduation from Centre College, Danville, and discusses at length his political career. An article of especial interest is the history of the unveiling of s monument to George Dennison Preu tice, the eminent Kentucky poet and journalist. The article is written by Mrs. Ella H. Ellwanger and a sup plementary sketch of the life and work of Prentice is written by Miss Mary Scrugham. of Kentucky, gradu ate of Columbia University, New York. Miss Cora Benedict, of Paducah, president of the "Woman's National Rivers and Harbors Congress," is one of the new contributors to the Regis ter and her article on "The Conser vation of Our Resources" will be of interest to many readers of the Reg ister. Miss Benedict, in addition to her other work, has gathered numer ous nnprinted folklore and historical facts of the South, especially of Ken tucky and Tennessee, and is arrang ing to bring this valuable material out under the title of "The Pur chase." The above are but a few of the commendable articles in the Sep tember Register. Frankfort (Ky.) State Journal. library Day. The progress of the School Li brary Movement in Tennessee dur ing the past few years is indeed notable and highly encouraging for the future. Past progress and pres ent needs have combined to make future effort more fruitful by the observance of an annual Library bay in every public school in the State. .State Superintendent Sherrill has In Memory. Another home is filled with sad ness and many hearts are aching with sorrow, because of the death of litle Earl Barnes, son of Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Barnes, of Boyle, Miss. Early on the morning of Aug. 29, shortly after the clock had ticked the hour of 1, the angel of death entered this home and crept softly to little Earl's bed and whispered, Come, go live with God and his angels where thy will be free from all suffering and pain." He was tak en with a congestive chill Friday evening, the 28th ult., and lived only 24 hours. He was 12 years, 11 months and 21 days old. It is hard indeed for our loved ones to be tak en from us so suddenly. Little Earl was spared here just long enough for his kindness and love to be wound deeply around the hearts of his loved ones. He, no doubt, was the light of the home. Oh, how his sweet smiles and little voice will be missed in the home. But father, mother, brothers and sisters, grieve not, for you know your loss is Heaven's gain. Earl is now a shinning light in that home above. He can't come to you, but you can go to him. The Lord has promised us this sweet promise. We can see them again, where we will know no sorrows or sadness. If We wil live only true and faithful until the end. Dear ones, you know that little Earl is safely in the arms of Jesus. He was too pure and holy to be spared here on earth to be tempted with sin and wickedness of this old world. Think of him as he now is, in that heavenly home, walk ing in the light of God, singing and shouting praises, watching and wait ing your coming. Dear ones, be pre pared and ready, for some day soon or late he will say unto us just as he has to little Earl, come, your work here on earth is finished. A precious one from you has gone, a voiced you loved is still, a place is vacant in your home that never can be filled. His little body was shipped back to Obion and taken out to New Chapel Cemetery at Elbridge for burial. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Banks at 3 o'clock Monday evening, 'Aug. 30, at the Methodist Church. The remains were then followed to the grave by a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends. WTritten by one who loved him. J7K In addition to the five demonstra tion farms now operated by the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway under the supervision of Special Agricultural Agent Joseph H. Judd, arrangements have just been made for a new demonstration farm at Martin, Tenn., which will be in cultivation next year. At pres ent the company operates demonstra tion and experiment farms at Dec herd, Sewanee, Murfreesboro, Tulla- homa and Dickson,, the combined acreage under cultivation being 375 and with the farm at Martin the-l acreage will be increased to 425 next year. That the work being done by the road in demonstrating the possibili ties of the soils in the several lo calities is having a -decided stilulus to farm endeavors in these sections is apparent. Another advantage which has been noted particularly at Tullahoma and Dickson, is that the cultivation of these farms by the road has caused property values in these sections to increase very materially. The farmers have been shown what the soil will do under the prop er tillage, and many of the farmers about the demonstration farms of the company are following the meth ods employed to advantage. The work being carried on at these farms is of such character that the small farmer may follow without a heavy outlay. Mr. Judd says that he expects to grow the 'general farm crops on the new farm at Martin, such as clover, alfalfa, corn and tobacco, and to raise a few head of live stock. He anticipates the same splendid results which have been obtained in the oth er sections of the State. The new farm is located along the right of way so that persons travel ing along the road may see what the N., C. & St. L. is doing toward the advancement of the agricultural in terests of the State. o). o;p:o.o b o 0:0. :o.a.p.b 0:0:0.0 Evans Mitchell. Though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies Jeremiah, 3:32. Died at his home, four miles of Union City, Sept. 1, Evans Mitchell, son of Mr. and Mrs. Giles Mitchell, after a long illness which he suffered patiently. It is beyond mankind to understand God fully, for as iaras the stars shine above the earth his work excel ours. i Why it is he takes from us our dear loved one is hard indeed for us to solve, but while he has left us to grieve over our lost ones he has giv en us one great ' and abiding conso lation: That is, that he' has never yet done aynthing but what he did for the best, though for each and every plant he plucks from this earth, there are some loved ones who grieve, and now God has seen fit to remove from us a young but worthy plant, who had just entered the threshold of early manhood transplanted it to a brighter more stately mansion. Evans was only 26 years Everything that loving hearts wiling hands could do was done, but to no avail. Death was too sure and swift. When at last the cares of life were elided he was ready to answer the Master's summons. Those who , mourn his death be sides his friends and relatives are his mother and, father, his three broth ers, Walter, Will T. and Marshall. His remains were laid to rest in the Shady Grove Cemetery Thursday at 11 o'clock, Rev. Butts conducting the funeral services. We extend our sincerest sympathy to the grief stricken family.
