Again the Jefferson county dele gation at Western Kentucky State Normal School feels there is a mes sage that all Jefferson county people should receive, and the teachers especially. This message is none ether than how and what is their Normal School at Bowling Green do ing for the betterment of education Not only is the course ot studv such that prepares the teacher so thoroughly as to be able to meet the demands of life by giving him a broad view and strength of mind which enables him to cope with these problems, with great credit to himself, but there is ever that side that partaKes of a social nature, which is so essential to every individ ual's life, which is so carefully plan ed as to be of great worth education ally, as well as great pleasure. There is the lecture course which gives the student the opportunity to hear some of the best music and greatest lecturers in the United States, two of whom we have had the pleasure of hearing this year, Drs. Newell Dwight Hillis and Parkes S. Caedmon. About the greatest thing that has ever been in this city was the Music Festival given by the Oritorio Society May 10th under the direction of Prof Franz J. Strahm, the head of the department of music of this institu tion. There were two great pro grams, the matinee which was rather unique in that it was rendered not only by a forty-piec- e orchestra, soloists, both vocal aad violin, but the chorus was sung by a hundred and fifty public school children of this city. The last number of the program was an "American Battle Scene," a great descriptive piece which aroused the emotions of all present, so yivid were the musical pictures. And the night was Hay dir's Oritorio, The Creation, render ed by the same orchestra and soloists but the chorus was composed of one adult voices hundred andseventy-fiv- e The hearing of such a musical com position as this, is a treat that many of us may never have again, and one no person could afford to miss, whether he is a lover of music or not. Everything that is essential to a well rounded and fully developed education is placed within the reach of every student. We will, indeed, be glad to have more of our members from Jefferson county to join us soon, Yours most respectfully, Jefferson Other News.

Nature seems in a rush to make up lost time and farmers must rush to- keep pace to her lead. Will report the results of - their activities later. . The Whitfield neighborhood had a mild sensation last Friday in the form of a fiustrated elopement. Mr Walls, a young man of about twenty- five, and Miss Etta Wallace, a pretty sixteen year old school girl, were the principals. The young lady was at school when the young man came by in his buggy and they started towards the city. The teacher, Miss Ruby Carlin, had the girl's father notified of the fact, and he phoned to have them detained at Fern Creek, until he arrived and persuaded them to abandon their intention of getting married and return home: the voung lady's extreme youth being the objection. A very dad death took place at Mr. Charlie Nachand's last Friday, when his little son, Carl, aged twelve years, was called home to God. An unusu ally bright boy, beloved bv all; especially his school mates, who sorrowfully acted as pall bearers. We extend our deepest sympathy to the bereaved parents and relatives.
