A Romatic Old Trail Calls the Traveler Congressmen from Uii'cu southern .slates are tryinjj to yet Uncle Sam to -spend 525,000,000 to put ;i modern paved highway alunjj tlie mulu of the famous old Natchez Trace; iind uny motorist who has any feeling at nil for one of the most colorful of all our pioneer trails will hope that Uncle Sam can sue his way clear to oblige them. The Natchez Truce was what passed for a road, a century and more ago, running for some 550 miles through the woods and swamps from Nashville, Tenn.. to Natchez, Muss., crossing what now are Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. It probably was the scene of more plain and faney violence, Woodshed and murder than any other road in America. In the old days when the country west of the Alleghenies and south of the Ohio jus I wits being opened—when the famous "Burr conspiracy" was in the air, and Andrew Jnekson was boiiiK talked of, and steamboats still were in; the future—the products of the rich Tennessee aiid Kentucky farmlands went to market at New Orleans by flat boat, down the Cumberland iind Tennessee rivers, over the Ohio, and down the Mississippi. » » r It is easy to get one of those heavy and unwieldy llatboats down the river, but exceedingly difficult to get it b;ick upstream. So the boatmen—rough, tough chaps who boasted that they • were "half horse and half alligator"— would leave the Mississippi at Natche/., op. their way back home, and strike out overland for Nashville, and the wilderness road they followed wa K the great Natchez Trace. • r I » Because it was used by .so many travelers who carried large Humilities of cash, the result, of their/sales in the New Orleans market, the Trace before long became a favored .spot for highwaymen. : The country was thinly settled, law- enforcement was a thing almost unknown, opportunities for ambush were innumerable. •So the Natchez Trace became a great scene of violence.

In Praise of Our Schools American schools, says I'm] 1 .

"What one must demand from tin; school in the lirsl place is .something negative," say.s the great mathematician. "It should nut suppress in the young a feeling of independence, a joy of living, personal initiative and the urge for knowledge. "This most impmlanl demand the schools of lite United States fill in most satisfactory manner, in contrast to the schools ol the greater part of Europe." Usually, when American schools are compared with Kuropean schools, the comparison is mil in the least Haltering In the American institutions. It is exceedingly interesting—and (•ncouniging—In linil that as great an authority on such matters as Dr. Kinstein I'eels thiil they are doing their job so well.
