Kentuckians will turn their steps and
set their faces toward the old home
for the week of June 13-17, when a
grand reunion of all former residents
of the Blue Grass State will be held
under the auspices of the Louisville
Commercial Club. Louisville will be
the mecca of the pilgrims and it is
conservatively estimated that 100,
000 visitors will be in the metropolis
of the Blue Grass State during Home
Coming week.
The suggestion of Home-Coming
week, which came from Miss Louise
Lee Hardin, of Denver, Colo., has led
to one of the greatest gatherings ever
held in the country. Though "Old
Home Weeks” have been held in the
New England States for many years,
Kentucky is the first to invite all of
its absent sons and daughters to re
turn to one city at one time, and it is
the first which has attempted to se
cure the name and address of every
former resident of the state. How
great this task was may be judged
by the fact that there are now living
in other states and territories over
600,000 native born Kentuckians. The
Blue Grass State has given of her
best citizenship to the upbuilding of
other states. Especially in the cen
tral and western parts of the United
States have Kentuckians gone in
great numbers. Indiana has about
60,000, Missouri over 88,000, etc. In
every walk of life, in politics, in law,
in medicine, in business, Kentuckians
have always been in the forefront.
In Lincoln and in Davis, the state
gave both to the North and to the
South the war presidents.
To Missouri she has furnished one
half her governors and many of ner
congressmen and senators. The list
might be extended indefinitely were
all the Kentuckians who have taken
high rank among the distinguished
men of their day named. The Breck
inridges, Clays, Crittendens, Mar
shalls and others have in every gen
eration taken a prominent part in
the affairs of the state and the na
The invitations to attend Home
Coming week have met with enthusi
astic responses from former Ken
tuckians in every part of the world.
Acceptances numbering about 50,000
have been received from every state
in the Union and from fifteen for
eign countries.
The preparations for the entertain
ment during Home-Coming week
have been made on an elaborate
scale. The citizens of Louisville are
raising a fund of $t>0,000 to be de
voted exclusively to this purpose.
Five parades, the unveiling of two
statues, airship flights and many
other features have been decided on.
The programme for the four days has
been arranged with a view to recall
ing in the most attractive and beauti
ful form the history of the state.
The first day, June 13, will be given
over to welcoming and registering
the guests. In the new armory build
ing in Louisville, the second largest
of its kind in the United States,
which will be the general headquar
ters for Home-Coming week, head
quarters for each of the 119 counties
of Kentucky will be opened. These
headquarters will be in charge of a
hostess and a commissioner named
from each county by Governor J. C.
W. Beckham. Here the visitors will
register and receive badges showing
the county of their birth. The for
mal address of welcome will be de
livered by the Hon. Henry Watter
son, editor of the Courier-Journal,
and the response will be made by the
Hon. David R. Francis, formerly gov
ernor of Missouri, and the head of
the Louisiana Purchase exposition.
Other distinguished Kentuckians who
will be on the programme during the
weeks are Associate Justice John M.
Harlan from Washington, D. C., for
mer Vice-President Adlai E. Steven
son, of Springfield. 111.; former United
States Senators Wm. Lindsay and
John G. Carlisle, of New York City;
former Governor Thos. G. Crittenden,
of Missouri; Governor E. W. Hoch, of
Kansas; Senator S. H. Pyles, of
Washington; Senator Shelby R. Cul

Foster’s songs. The bands of Louis
ville and those employed for Home
Coming week will be arranged as
one and will together play the song
that has done so much to attach every
Kentuckian to his native state.
Daniel Boone, the hardy pioneer,
is chiefly responsible for the coloni
zation of Kentucky, and who, when
he first saw the dark and bloody
ground, declared it to be a park and
not a wilderness, will be honored on
Friday, which will be known as
Boone day. The exercises of the day
will be typical of the period in which
Boone lived. Following the unveil
ing of the statue of Boone, made by
Miss Enid Yandell, and which has
been presented to the city by one ol
her wealthy citizens, the visitors will
gather in Cherokee Park, the most
beautiful spot in the Falls City. Here
a fort and stockade, modeled aftei
Boonesboro, will be built and a mimic
reproduction of an encounter be
tween the settlers and the Indians
will bet given. The victory of the
settlers will be celebrated with old
fashioned games, apple parings, sew
ing bees and other simple amuse
ments which the pioneers greatly en
joyed. A Virginia reel will be danced
on a platform which shall be built
to hold a thousand couples. At nighl
an allegorical pageant, the theme ol
which will be the history of Ken
tucky, will be the center of interest
This pageant is expected to prove
the most spectacular event of the
week, and it is believed that it will
surpass in gorgeousness the annual
shows given during the Mardi Gras
festivals in New Orleans. Imme
diately after the parade has covered
the line of march the maskers will
enter the new armory building,
where Daniel Boone will be presented
to one of the most beautiful of Ken
tucky’s young women, who will rep
resent the New Kentucky, and who.
together with the pioneer, will lead
oft the grand march, which will open
the ball. The ball Itself will be the
biggest of its kind ever held south of
the Ohio river. The dancing floor in
the new armory will accommodate
between 8,000 and 10,000 persons.
Kentucky orators and poets will
have their day on Saturday, which
will be known as Greater Kentucky
day. An old-fashioned Kentucky
barbecue will be held in Shawnee
park on the bank, of the beautiful

spirit of Sunday, the closing day of
the reunion.
Following the Home-Coming week
in Louisville ^County Home-Comings
will be held by nearly every county
in Kentucky. The business organiza
tions of each couunty has appointed
committees who, with the comission
ers appointed by Governor Beckham,
is preparing to take back from Louis
ville to each county all natives and
former residents. The entertainment
of the County Home-Comings will be
simpler than that planned for Louis
ville, and with the exception of sev
eral formal orations and a large
county picnic, it has been thought
that the visiiors would find the great
est enjoyment in seeing their rela

Responsibilities of Citizenship Are
Taught as Well as Home
Students of female emancipation may
be interested to learn from the report
of the National Council of Women m
Norway that that country has recog

jury; that the storthing recently nom
inated a woman as the winner of the
Nobel prize, and that a school has been
started to instruct young girls in the
responsibilities of citizenship as we.l
as in the care of children. It is also
learned that the number of women
who voted for the separation of Nor
way from Sweden was greater than
that of the men.

The Observance of Law and Order la
as Earnest as in Eastern
It is often difficult to persuade our
eastern cousins, says the Sunset Mag
azine, that life and property among
the miners of the far west is as safe
as in any part of Massachusetts; nev
ertheless, statistics will show that
is actually the case. The eastern idea
of lawlessness among our miners is
the result of the reading of sensation
al fiction which describes the gold
miner as ready on all occasions to
“shoot at tne drop of the hat,” and
that makes stage robbing an almost
everyday occurrence. In truth, these
novels are far less reliable, in their
local color, than the so-called “histori
cal novels” of the present day. There
are still in California and some of the
other states communities and towns of
several thousand souls wholly de
pendent on mining, where the miner
can be observed on his native heath,
and all his peculiarities observed and
chronicled. Several of these towns
have excellent governments, with all
the accessories of a highly civilized ex
istence—high schools, churches, con
create sidewalks and electric lighting.
In even the largest of these towns it
will be found that the police courts
have next to nothing to do. Take, as
an example, the cities of Nevada and
Grass Valley, in Nevada county, each
having a population of several thou
sand. The records of the police court
in both cities for the past year show
less than one arrest a month, even in
cluding those for the most trivial mis
demeanors. Can this be equalled any
where else in the world?

West Quincy, which is the first station
after leaving Quincy, 1,360 pounds in
the 60 days. In order to obtain the
compensation, they multiply that 811.
000 pounds by the distance between
Quincy and W’est Quincy, which is two
and a half miles. Then they add the
1,360 pounds wnich was put on at West
Quincy. That serves as a basis for
computation between West Quincy and
the next station, which is Palmyra.
Then multiply that sum by the number
of miles which intervene between
West Quincy and Palmyra. That de
termines the weight for that distance.
At Palmyra there was a very large
,amount of mail put on and some mail
(taken off. They find the difference be
tween the two and add that to the
amount of mail that was carried be

They keep up the process to the end.
The same course is pursued on incom

sums together, incoming and outgoing,
and divide it by the whole distance, or

Census Statistics Show That Progress
for Over Hundred Years Has Been
Remarkably Regular as to
Distance and Direction.
New York.—The center of popula
tion in the United States has been
moving steadily westward for more
than a century with remarkable regu
larity, both as regards distance and
direction. Since the year 1790 the
exact location of this mythical point
has been calculated officially at Wash
ington for every ten years of the na
tion’s history. When these points
are plotted upon the map and con
nected a remarkable line of progress
is obtained, in which may be read
at a glance much of the country’s his
In the year 1790, when the center
of population was first calculated, it
was found to be at a point 23 miles
east of Baltimore. In making this
estimate the entire population of the
United States of that period was of
course considered. It was the popu
lation center of a strip extending
from Maine to Florida. And since
the frontier population of that early
day was inconsiderable the center of
population was practically the same
as the geographical center. To-day
the geographical center of the coun
try is of course considerably west of
the Mississippi. In more than a cen
tury these two theoretical points have
become widely separated. The center
of population in the United States is
at present six miles southeast of Co
lumbus, Ind.
The regularity of this line is the
more remarkable when It is consid
ered that the United States has grown,

geographically, by leaps and bounds.
The development of the country has
not been a steady growth westward
as regards its acquisition of territory.
The Louisiana Purchase, for example,
by adding millions of acres to the
United States, at one time would pre
sumably have had the effect of draw
ing this line of progress sharply to
the southwest.
By reference to the accompanying
map it will be seen that the digres
sions of this line either to the north
or south have been somewhat less
than 50 miles in a full century.
These figures apply, however, only un
til the end of the last century. Since
1890 the line has shown a tendency
to move southward, while at the same
time its rate of progress has been
abruptly checked. In other words,
while the movement of the line was
at the rate of about 40 miles every
ten years, its movement during the
decade from 1890 to 1900 was but 14
miles, a startling contrast with previ
ous decades for a century. This ab
rupt check to its movement, and its
southward tendency indicate, of
course, a rapid increase of the popu
lation in the south.
me nrst movement recorded, that
between 1790 and 1800, was from a
point 23 miles east of Baltimore to a
point 18 miles west of that city, a
total movement of 41 miles. Ten
years later it was located 40 miles
northwest by west of Washington,
having moved 36 miles in the dec
ade. By the year 1820 it had reached
a point 16 miles north of Woodstock,
Va„ having traveled an even 50 miles.
In the following decade it left the
state of Virginia, coming to rest in
the present state of West Virginia,
19 miles west-southwest of Moorfleld,
a distance of 39 miles. It next trav
eled to a point 16 miles south of
Clarksburg, in the same state, 55
miles. The next decade carried it to
a point 23 miles southeast of Par
kersburg. repeating the same distance
of the previous decade, 55 miles. In
1860 it moved into Ohio, to a point
20 miles south of Chillicothe, having
traveled 81 miles, the longest move
ment in its history.
Ten years later it had reached a
point eight miles northeast of Cin
cinnati, 58 miles. The southern ten
dency then became obvious, for in the
following ten years, between 1870 and
1880, it traveled to a point eight
miles west by south of Cincinnati.
It next moved to a point 20 miles
eats of Columbus. Ind.. and in' the
las ten years, in 1900, it had reached
Its present resting place. The total
distance traveled in 110 years has
been exactly 519 miles.

than any other aeronaut. He was th6
first to cross the English channel in
a balloon from the south. One of the
most thrilling episodes of his career
was in passing, with one companion,
over the blazing furnaces of the city
of Liege, at night. Far below they
could see tiny pigmies, like devils,
hammering and working among the
flames. All the world seemed afire,
the heat grew intense and the air be
came so rarified it seemed to draw
their balloon down towards the roar

most overcome, they threw out every
thing and succeeded in keeping the
balloon in the air until they had
passed the city.

which romance has interwoven with

have not seen can form no idea of the

ruthless destruction of game. Noth

are sacrificed to bait traps for mar
ten and fisher, and not only the squir
rels, but ail kinds of birds, whet her
game or song birds. In trapping
mink, otter, beaver, and a few other
fur-bearing animals, the trap is near
ly always set near the water, where
the animal when caught can drown
itself, thus ending its suffering. But
with bear, marten and fisher it is dif
ferent. The bear must drag a heavy
clog about until it catches in some
root or bush. There he must wait un
til the trapper comes to kill him, and

trappers’ brutality. He writes: “One
trapper in one day shot 19 large blue

rifle. The birds were nesting; he
had no use for them, and not one did
he even bring to camp. Three year?

at Portsmouth dockyard to ascertain
to what extent the steaming properties

navy are improved by storage in the
Eighteen months ago iron crates
each containing two tons of coal, were
sunk in the big basin, and at the
same time a similar quantity of coal
was carefully stored in the open ail
at the coaling point and sheltered
from the weather beneath tarpaulins
At intervals of six months two-ton
samples from each storage have beeD
taken out and carefully burned, and
the results of the experiments have
shown conclusively that by submarin*
storage of coal its calorific value
steadily increases, while by storage in
the open air a decided decrease is
At the naval coaling stations in the
tropics this decrease in calorific value
is very great, the sun’s heat drawing
all the light volatile- oils out of the
coal. The admiralty, having satisfied
themselves of the physical and flnan
cial advantages of the storage of coal
in the sea, have now directed that
experiments be made to ascertain its
practicability on a large scale.
The difficulty is that the submerged
coal has to be dried before use, to
remove the superficial moisture, which
otherwise in the close confines of a
warship’s bunker would soon set up
spontaneous combustion. The only
method of drying so far attempted is
by spreading the coal on iron trays In
the open air, a process satisfactory
enough for experimental purposes, but
not feasible for quantities that amount'
to thousands of tons.

“No,” the pretty telephone girl re

Hence you have to use the left ear in

there originally because the left ear

Ah, no. Tne receiver was hung at the
