Lots of cotn and grass were destroyed. Morgan Whitaker and Louis Hoskins passed through here on their way to Little Paint on business. ing them up in luxurious idleness. This habit of excessive outlay upon young girls, runs through every grade of society. The daughter of the b'acksmith is as likely to be dressed extravagantly in proportion to his means as that of the millionaire for whom he works. The incline which the successful professional man carn3 by his brains is equal to the interest on a large bull; of capitol; it gives him the feeling of affluence. But, in tearing his daughters he i3 apt wholly to forget that his brains die with him. For how many of the pretty, innocent butterflies who brighten our streets today is any provision made to insure them, five years hence, one tithe of the luxuries which they now enjoy? IIoiv many of them arc qualified to earn their own living? The of this cruel neglect in par ents strikes deeper than mce poverty. Luxuries are made necessities for the girl. She knows that on the death of her father she will lose them; she cannot earn them. There is but one way to secure them marriage with a rich man. There is the secret of the vulgar idea of mar riage which is debasing our social life; of the market for worn- en which fashionable society has become; of the voluntary sale of themselves of the prettiest girls of each season to rich old men of the wretched homes, and of the innumerable divorces that end this lamentable history.

Regardless of tho construction drinkplaced on tho ing cup law by tho Attorney General of Kentucky, Superintenanti-publ- dent of Public Instruction Barks-dal- e Hamlett Monday announced that ho would have the law enforced in all schools. The public fails to see any gcod reason for withholding the sanitary benefit of the drinking cup law from tho public schools. It should ho strictly enforced there, above all other places. Most people havo seen how drinking water is done in tho public schools, and they know tho way the common drinking vessel is passed from mouth to mouth, regardless of dirt and disease, is far from being a sanU tary or wholesome procedure. Tho News would go further in this matter and say that tho water receptacle should be a closed vessel with a spigot or faucet. If pupils arc permitted to dip their individual cups into tho water then the intention of tho law is almost wholly lost. The matter is to bo taken to tho court of appeals, and pending its action the teacher of every public school in tho commonwealth should strictly enforce the law as it now stands, and the teacher who fails in this regard is derelict in his duty to his pupils and a violator of tho law. -- Big Sandy News.
