The Ordway Bee Keepers Associa
tion met at the church last Saturday
afternoon. A full attendance wa* on
hand and the subject of foul broed,
black brood and pickled brood was
fully discussed. After the evidence
was gfren it was decided that oar Co.
should have more thorough inspection,
as manr bees were being brought in
from infected districts. There was
much testimony showing that contagc
ous diseases already existed in our
county. Good inspestion will injure
no one and bench i all. Why not then
demand it? A resolution was passed
unanimously urging our county court
to secure thorough work: if our present
inspector cannot give tun: to do it,
have some one appointed that wou'd
devote the necessary time. Mr. Leh
man, of Rocky Ford, recommended as
a thorough bee man, would (111 the
office very satisfactorily to our people.

HOW EDUCATION IS SHOWN.
l*rof. duller tii*e* leruln Cli»rMt«r*
I lira by tt lilch to Jadff* ■ M»n.
Any ono ran tell a gentleman by
looking at his back, but it takes clc£o
observation to discover by cursory ex
amination whether a man in educated ■
or not. By education we do not mean j
merely the fact that a man ha* gone
through a high school or a college and
made the motion of receiving an edu
cation. But we refer to that training
of the mind which receives and grasps
.'acts and understands them in the light
of past wisdom.
Professor Nicholas Murray Butler of
Columbia University. New York, bas
given five tules ty which any one may
tell an educated man.
First. Is tho corrccftess with which
ho uses his mother tongue and the pre
cision of his idiom. The educated man
moves eurriy aiinr/ngrttK* worrra or b’dXT
on, Roman and Greek origin as among
Second. Is tho man's manners. Not
the veneer that may be put cn or o!T
as occasion serves, but tho genuine
habit of the tnan himself.
Third, Is tho power of reflection.
Given an Idea, the educated tnan will
throw t:pon the subject tho light of a
number of corelated facts that are com
pletely beyond the power and ability of
Fourth. 13 the power to grow. Un

certain point. They become uon-rc
Fifth. Is tho ability to do. Rctirc
rront from tho world and contempla
tion are no longer signs of education
and enllghtonracnt. Tho modern man
of education must accomplish things.
THIS MAN IS FROM CHICAGO.
Going to lotrodnca Monkoyi m
Farm Hands In tho South.
Paul Kuntz, a Chicago man. who has :
extensive interests In the south, is
now In Arkansas with a party of
northern capitalists, has a plan for the
solution of tho labor problem In the
south. The remedy, says Mr. Kuntz,
lies in the substitution of monkeys
for the negro.
Thus far Mr. Kuntz's plans only look
to the replacing of the negro by a
monkey In the cotton-picking season.
Ho says he knows monkeys and their
capacities, and Is confident that they
can be so trained as to mako the
most ofllcient kind of cotton-pickers.
They can not cnly pick as well, as the
negro, but they can pick twice as much
In a given time. There arc other ad
vantages attendant upon their em
ployment. Ono Is that they will not
demand wages, and this item will bo
an Immense advantage to the planter.
Neither will they form labor unions,
and the union principle that is gaining
a foothold among the negroes Is not
encouraged on the big plantations.
Mr. Kuntz derives his knowledge of
monkeys from observation of them in
Africa, of which country he Is a na
tive. He is so well satisfied that they
can bo trained to do the work in the
cotton fields that he now has a large
consignment of them on the way from
that country, which he proposes to
employ on a cotton plantation which
he owns. H® says that his experience
has demonstrated to hts satisfaction
that the ’aonkey can be trained to
perform any kind of manual labor re
quiring skill and application. Tho
work must not be too laborious, as the
monkey has not the strength requisite
tor heavy labor.
