THE KENTUCKY KERNEL
(With Apologies to the Press
Divers and BUndry hearts In the lit
tie village of Possum Trot received a
thrill last evening about 6 o'clock. Never again will
quickly and caper about so rambunc-tlouslas they did at that time.
The cause of all the excitement was
r headline on the front page of the
local paper to this effect: "POSSUM
TROT BOY BREAKS ALL RECORDS." Such a statement coming so
unexpectedly was sufficient to unbalance the soberest intellect, and make
malleable the most adamantine heart
in Possum Trot. It did all that, and
Turn thine eyes to one home In particular, where you will have the privilege of seeing what a headline can
do and seldom does. Father, Mother
and the children are seated around
the center table, and Father Is reading from the "Possum Trot News
The item which engages
the undivided attention of all is as
"Josephus Varney Steeples, son of
Mr. and Mrs. John Steeples, of this
city, is making an enviable record at
the University of Kentucky, where he
has been attending school for the last
two years, etc."
Turning to Mother, and taking an
unusually long draw at his old cob
pipe, Father says: "Martha, didn't I
tell you that boy would make his
mark? They fcin't a smarter boy in
Kalntucky than our Joe. His education has cost us a heap of money,
but he's showin them College people
what kind of stuff he's made of. You
watch him make 'em set up and take
"Yes," replies Mother. "Joe always
hankered after larnin', and I'm mighty
glad we have give him a chance to
get it. I'd like to see him now,
wouldn't you, John "
brushes a tear away. Mothers are
prone to that sort of thing, you know.
"Gee, I bet Joe'd feel big if he could
see his name in the paper," says Joe's
"And my, won't Ethel Barton be
jealous of me!" chimes in Maude,
Joe's pretty sister, who is a freshman
in high school. "Her brother was sent
home from the University because he
flunked in his studies."
So goes the conversation as Father
reads the record of Josephus Varney
Steeples' achievements at the University.
Two days later the said
Josephus receives a letter, postmarked at Possum Trot, and containing,
along with n check for a goodly
amount, some words of commendation, encouragement, ct cetern, the
gist of which Is, "Go to It, my boy;
I'm for you I"
All of which goes to show that tho
Press Association in a good thing, and
a flower born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air."
