PAGE 8 THE KENTUCKY KERNEL CONCERNING THRILLS (With Apologies to the Press Association) Divers and BUndry hearts In the lit tie village of Possum Trot received a thrill last evening about 6 o'clock. Never again will the before-mentione- d hearts beat so 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 more. 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 Weekly." The item which engages the undivided attention of all is as follows: "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 notice." "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 " And she 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 brother, Jim. "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. Results: Two days later the said y d WANTED! 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 is not " a flower born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air." Selected from "Sayings of Solomon II." LITERARY SOCIETIES Phllosophlan.
