"Let the poor be not forgotten, and let those who have prospered remember those who 
have not, for the sincerest expression of gratitude is not in fulsome words of the mouth, but 
deeds of charity and kindness to those wh6 need help." « From GOV. J, C. W, BECFC- 
HAM'S Thanksgiving Day Proclamation. 

NO. 4. 

To-day is the day of all days 
when all good citizens are 
called upon to take a retro- 
spective view of the year 
which has gone by, and to 
give thanks to Almighty God 
for whatever of good has come 
into their lives. To-day is the 
day when most, if not all of us 
sit down to our tables, which 
are loaded with the products of 
the farm and the field, prepar- 
^*V. V tVe i'ood wivs rind 
mothers of Kentucky can pre- 
pare them, and surrounded by 
our loved ones, enjoy to the ut- 
most such feasts as would de- 
light the Gods. All this is as 


The Rev. W. T. Amis, who 
is so well and favorably known 
by our people as a former pas- 
tor of the Baptist church in 
this city, but who is now serv- 
ing as pastor of the First Bap- 
tist church of Hot Springs, 
Ark., and Miss Maud Petty, 
the handsome and accomplish- 
ed daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
C. W. Petty, were married yes- 
terday afternoon at the resi- 
dence of the bride's parents on 
North Main street, by Eld. H. 
N. Keubelt, pastor of the 
Christian church, the ceremo- 
ny taking place at 2:30 o'clock. 
The happy young people, this 
morning, took the train for 
Louisville, and from there will 
go direct to their new home in 
Hot Springs. 

Mr. Amis is one of the ablest 
and most eloquent ministers of 
the gospel who ever served a 
church in this city, and, dur- 
ing his short ministry here, 
there were more additions to 
the church than had taken 
place within the preceding five 

it should be, and we rejoice in 
the general prosperity which 
God has seen fit to bestow up- 
on our beloved country. But, 
while we have received, some 
of us more and some of us less 
of this prosperity, and have 
been blessed with good health, 
and death has not invaded the 
sanctuary of our homes, and 
the family circle is vet com- 
plete, let us not forget that 
there are others in our little 
community, yea, even among 
our immediate neighbors, who 
have been less fortunate. 
While we arc enjoying our 
feasts of good things, there 

vears, and, as a pastor, he was 
equally successful, having en- 
deared himself to his congre- 
gation as none of his prede- 
cessors had done. His former 
parishioners gladly congratu- 
late him on the success he is 
achieving in his new field of 
labors, and especially do they 
join in congratulations because 
of his success in this new ven- 
ture, and their best wishes fol- 
low him and his bride to their 
new home in the far West. 

The bride is a member of 
the Christian church of this 
city, and is a graduate of our 
High School. For several 
years she has been closely 
identified with the work of the 
church and Sunday -s 'nd 
her pastor and te? ? 
nothing but praise 
sistent Christian Um ■ «1 
deservedly popular in church 
and society circles, and the peo- 
ple of this community warmly 
commend her to the people 
among whom she will reside in 
the future. 

are those who have little or 
nothing to eat. While we have 
good health, there are others 
who have been laid on beds of 
sickness. While the Death 
Angel has p issed us and ours 
by, there are others who have 
been called to mourn the loss 
of their loved ones. While 
our crops and stock have pros- 
pered, there are others who 
have lost their little all. 
While we are enjoying all the 
good things that has come to 
us during the year, and are re- 
joicing because of the bless- 
ings which have fallen to our 
lots, let us see to it that oth-

The people   r Anderson 
county have always been wil- 
ling to listen to the word of ( tod 
as delivered by the Rev. Geo. 
( ). Barnes, who has fur tome 
time been conducting service* 
at the Court-house ■ There 
was a time when the coming 
of The Great Barnei was her* 
sided throughout the county, 
snd ourcitisens would flock to 
town to hear him deliver, in 
his master manner, the wel- 
come message. 

Upon one occasion, he drew 

immense crowds, made up of 
people from all walks of lift- 
crippled, sick and blind who 
believed that by annointing 

them, he could relieve their 

great sufferings, Again, he 
came to us, not annotating, 
but receiving confessions and 
blessing, and the people be- 
lieved in him and followed him. 

Later, he visited us, but used 

neither the annointing nor the 
open confessions. Now he 
comes to us as a Dowieite, 
preaching the doctrine of John 
Alexander Dowie, of Zion 

Pew of our people under- 
stand the teachings of Dowie, 
and. being somewhat acquaint- 
ed with them, we will attempt 
to briefly explain. 

John Alexander Dowie Mes- 
senger of the Convent and 

S] irit of Elijah, the Restorer, 

as he calls himself, was burn 

fifty-five years ago in Edin- 
burgh, of Scotch parents. Re- 
ceiving his education, he be- 
came a minister ot the gospel. 
Alter spending much time in 
his home country and Austra- 
lia, he came to this country 

ten years ajro and settled in 
Chicago. He pitched his tent 
near the entrance to the 
World's Fair grounds, and, 
like Boardman, Simpson and 
Mrs. Mix, who he followed, 
attracted more than ordinary- 
attention as a faith curer and 
healer. Dowie possessed more 
shrewdness than the average 
talker of his class that may be 
found talking nightly on State 
or Monroe streets in Chicago, 
and from "the hut," as his 
tent was called, he entered 
Music Hall, and finally the 
great Auditorium, with a seat- 
ing capacity of thousands. 
With his knowledge of minis- 
terial work, Dowie soon had 
many ministers with him, and 
later well organized bands of 
workers were tfoiny here and 
there receiving contributions 
and converts for him. Money 

was soon plentiful, and a large 

tabernacle was built. Real 
estate was purchased along 

Michigan avenue, regardless 
id" price, and soon there was 
fitted up a large publishing 

house, that much printing 
matter could be published anil 
spread broadcast over the land. 
Funds continued to come in, 
and finally a bank was opened, 
with John Alexander Dowie as 
President, Hoard of Directors 
and " the whole cheese." 
Stores were opened, and later 
hospitals for the sick. When 
the latter was started, Dowie's 
troubles started, for duriny one 
year he was arrested hundreds 
of times. He finally left Chi- 
cago and purchased   ,    o 
acres of the finest land in Illi- 
nois, only forty miles north of 
the the city at a cost of more 
than a million and a half dol- 
lars. To buy this land, he 

took the money from his Hock, 
and is now generously selling 
it back to them in town lots at 
his own prices. Upon this 
land he has built what he calls 
Zion City. All of his stores, 
his bank, his lace factories and 
his hospitals have Ix-en 
moved there, and are personal* 
ly conducted and looked after 
by John Alexander Dowie. 
"overseer" and sole owner. 
Every Dowieite, however em- 
ployed, must give ten percent, 
of his earnings tow ard the sup- 
of Dowie and Zion. The lead- 
er claims to have a following 
of more than one hundred 
thousand, and, this being true, 
it is easily seen how million 
dollar real estate purchases 
can be made. Unless these 
contributions are made, no 
prayers will Ik- offered for the 
salvation of the member, or 
restoring of health. Much 
money is sent to Dowie by peo- 
ple out of the city, asking thst 
he pray for them. When such 
a letter is received. Dowie «oes 
to what he calls his clock pray- 
ing machine and presses the 
button, and out drops a card 
which reads "You were prayed 
for at 2.35 1'. M.," which is at 
once sent to the sender of the 
money. General prayers, which 
are calculated to restore health, 
are talked by him into a pho- 
nograph, and the records are 
then sold for a good price to 

his followers. Being greatly 
conceited, he has had made 
hundreds of pictures of him- 
self, s  me of which are life- 
size, and he sells them for nice 

sums to his believers. Zion 

believes that Dowie is a Proph- 
et, but Chicago and the West 
believe that he is the greatest 
"fakir" that ever came before 

the American people. In the 
West his appearance or that 
of one of his followers in pub- 
lic is the signal for not and 
disorder. At Evanston, 111., 
Hammond, Ind., Mansfield, 
Ohio, and hundreds of other 
places, they have been run out 
of town with ejjjrs and decay- 
ed fruits. 

We dislike to devote so much 
of our space to such a matter, 
but believe that what we have 
said, and know to be true, will 
tfive you some idea of Dowie- 
ism, of which Bro. Barnes 
claims to be a convert. 

It Looked Like a Shame 
to Burn It. 

Last week. OUT gtnial friend, 
Postmaster Geo. W. Hutche- 
son, received froui ahacquatnt- 
a nee a a Ihjx of very fine cig- 
ars, together with a letter ex- 
plaining that they cost one 
dollar each. After thinking 
over his friends who might 
brave an attack of gout, caus- 
ed by such high life, he decid- 
ed to experiment on the editor 
of IT, and brought over one 
beautifully decorated. It did 
look good to us, and, though 
the editor's first intention was 
to keep it, the temptation was 
too strong, and the match was 
applied, and the smoke that is- 
sued from the jfarrct of his 
anatomy reminded one of a 
double-header pulling the 

Withe rspoon grade. Our only 

Rgret now is that there was 
not a jiolicy on it for the full 
value, that we might onee 
more enjoy such a luxur,'.

Enough to Put the Town 
"on the Hog." 

Some weeks past, Mr. W. T. 
Bond started to fattening twen- 
ty-one hogs near the Bond & 
Lillard distillery, and it is puz- 
zling him now how he is going 
to get them home to kill them. 
Xo one of them will weigh 
less than five hundred pounds, 
and they are so fat they can 
hardly walk around the pen. 
While the distance from his 
home to the distillery is only 
about one-half a mile, Mr. 
Bond says he will give them 
two days in which to walk it, 
. X"d, at *h° end of the given 
time, all that had not reached 
the slaughtering pen will be 
given a ride that they will 
know nothing about.

It is with much regret that 
we announce the death of Mr. 
John C. Hammond of heart 
disease. He had been com- 
plaining of heart trouble for 
some time, but no one thought 
of any imminent danger from 
that source. On last Sunday 
morning, he was apparently 
in his usual health, and went 
about his morning duties as 
usual. After finishing his 
chores, he remarked that he 
would go over to his son's 
home for a little while, and 
started out. This was the last 
seen of him until his lifeless 
body was found lying near a 
path on the farm. Mr. Ham- 
mond was an excellent citizen 
and a good neighbor, and had 
a host of friends who deeply 
and sincerely sympathize with 
the mourning family. He 
leaves a wife, three sons and 
one daughter. He was sixty- 
one years of age at the time of 
his death. 

Mr. Harry McAfee, who has 
for some time been connected 
with the hardware firm of 
Johnson & Mahan, has pur- 
chased the interest of Mr. J. 
P. Johnson, and, on Monday, 
the style of the firm was chang- 
ed to Mahan & McAfee. Mr. 
Harry McAfee is a young man 
of fine business ability, and, 
during his stay here, has made 
many friends. Mr. Johnson 
will return to the training of 
trotting horses, which he quit 
to embark in the hardware 
business. He will, on Decem- 
ber the first, take charge of 
the training stables of J. M. 
Johnson and R. H. Lillard. 

Mr. Davis McBrayer and 
Miss Lillian Stewart will be 
married to-day in Lexington. 
The groom is a prosperous 
young farmer, and a son of 
Mr. H. S. McBrayer, a wealthy 
farmer of the Ninevah commu- 
nity. The bride is a popular 
and attractive young lady of 
Louisville, and has had charge 
of the public school at Nine- 
vah for the past two years. 

A long procession of sorrow- 
ing friends followed the re- 
mains of the little son of Mr. 
and Mrs. Samuel Vaughn 
which died on last Saturday to 
its last resting place in the 
Lawrenceburg cemetery on 
Sunday afternoon. The ser- 
vices were conducted at the 
Christian church at 2 o'clock 
by Eld. H. N. Reubelt.

There was solemnized at the 
Capital Hotel, in Frankfort, 
yesterday afternoon at four 
o'clock the wedding of two of 
Lawreneeburg's most popular 
young people— Miss Margaret 
Wallace Selby and Mr. Cole- 
man Davis Lyen. While long 
exiK-cted, their wedding was 
somewhat of a surprise to their 
many friends, so quietly did 
they go about arranging for 
it. Last Friday, in company 
with Mr. Samual Ottenheimer, 
Mr. Lyen drove to Frankfort 
and secured the services of 
the Rev. J. M. Crow, of the 
Presbyterian church, and ar- 
ranged for the parlors of the 
Capital Hotel. It was this 
drive that started the gossipcrs, 
and the truth was soon known. 
All arrangements having been 
completed, accompanied by 
Mr. Ottenheimer and Miss Ma- 
ry Francis Lillard, they drove 
over to the Capital City, where 
they were married. The bride 
is the popular daughter of Mr. 
and Mrs. Benj. Selby, Jr., and 
is one of the most attractive 
young ladies of the county. 
The groom is the polite and 
accommodating clerk at the 
Citizens Bank, and his host of 
friends will congratulate him 
upon winning the hand of this 
most charming young lady. 
A kmg ,ife - an l a happy one, 
is the wish extended to them 
by IT.

The handkerchief throw giv- 
en by Miss Margaret Jones on 
Tuesday afternoon in honor of 
Miss Margaret Selby was one 
of the most enjoyable affairs 
held in this city in many days. 
Promptly at font o'clock, the 
guests be fan to arrive, regard- 
less of the shower the weather 
man had seen fit to send. Soon 
after all were assembled. Miss 
Selby was showered with the 
most beautiful assortment of 
handkerchiefs ever seen. Af- 
ter this shower, there was 
much laughter when it was 
made known that Mr. Davis 
Lyen would next be showered, 
for the young gentlemen were 
well prepared for the event. 
The signal was given, and it 
was with much difficulty that 
Davis tunneled himself out 
from under bandanna handker- 
chief! and red socks. A most 
elegant luncheon was then 
served, at which a large cake 
was cut. The following draws 
were made: Miss Ada Trent 
received the lucky cut. which 

contained the ring: Miss Flor- 
ence Witherspoon the needle; 
Dr. Geo. E. Davis the thimble, 
and Mrs. Sallie Allin. tin- 
knife. There was then a ven 
"spirited" contest, in which 
the prize was awarded to Miss 
Selby. The following is a list 
of those present: Misses Mar- 
garet Selby, Lillard. Florence 
and Henrietta Witherspoon.

' The School Ma'am," Presented 
by Home Talent, Pleases a 
Large Audience. 

The production of the come- 
dy. "The School Ma'am," by 
the ladies of the Fresbyterian 
church, last Thursday nitrht. 
was one of the most successful 
amateur performances ever 
irfven in this city. 

The audience was the larg- 
est ever gathered in the spa- 
cious Circuit Court room. and. 
judging from the peals of 
laughter and the volumes of 
applause, it enjoyed the play 
from first to last. 

The several parts were well 
sustained by those participat- 
ing in the performance. The 
work of Mrs. Mary Howling 
Bond, as the persecuted school 
ma'am.; Frank Ripy, as Un- 
dertow, the self-made man; 
Mrs. I). A. McAfee, as Mrs. 
Undertow; Willie Johnson, as 
Johnnie Grump; Miss Allie 
Lyen, as Marly Undertow, and 
Harry McAfee, as Trueblood, 
befog especially tfood. And, 
too, the work of John K. John- 
son, as Jamie McWhack, the 
janitor, must not be overlook- 

ed, as it was he who discover- 
ed the criminal who burned 
the school-house and relieved 
the prettv teacher from her 

The program was varied by 
specialties thrown in between 
the scenes by Miss Nettie 
Smith, of Lexington, whose 
sintfinn " brought down the 
house." and by Miss Marion 
Johnson, whose dancing was 
heartily applauded. Mr. (). 
Coleman Cox. who sanjr "I'm 
(loinjr to Leave," made but 
one mistake, and that was in 
not doing so before he Mag. 

The receipts of the evening 
amounted to eijrhty-tive dol- 
lars, which will leave the soci- 
ety some seventy dollars to 
the food. IT congratulates 
the ladies on their splendid 

Lawrenceburg Pulpits. 

Messrs. A. Hawkins & Co. 
have lxjutfht of Mr. J. L. Bond 
the six thousand turkeys that 
the latter was to kill at Bond- 
ville, and will slaughter them 
here. Mr. Hawkins has pur- 
chased turkeys from Shelby, 
Woodford, Mercer, Spencer 
and Anderson counties, and, 
starting last Tuesday, are to 
kill from 1,000 to 2,000 per day

It is a little significant that 
the week after the appearance 
of the first issue of the new 
paper at Lawrenceburg that 
the three congregation! of tin- 
city were suddenly aroused to 
the necessity of employing 
pastors. They had been tfet- 
tinjr alontf with empty pulpits 
for some time, but just as soon 
as IT made its debut all three 
protestant churches sent out 
calls for a pastor, and we get 
this reliable news from the 

newly-born babe IT-self 
Rev. (leo.  ). Barnes is preach- 
ing in Lawrenceburg. Has IT 

anything to do with the fourth 
preacher's beinjr called to Law- 

renceburg? -Harrodaburg Dem- 

Yes. Brer Crimes, these are 
all foreign missionaries sent 
here by Brer Bowmar, of the 
Woodford Sun, to try and save 
us and free us from vulgarity, 
with which we are charged by 
his last issue on account of the 
Osborne write-up. 

Messrs. R. L. Thurman, \V. 
B. Morgan, K. II. Wither- 

spoon, (leo. C. Hoffman and 
J as. Morgan have returned 
from their Casey county hunt- 
ing trip. They report having 
had tine sport, killing 108 
■ piails in two days' hunt. 
While they were in conversa- 
tion a few days since in front 
of Morgan A Hyatt's stable, 
some one who was helping to 
back a lartfe wajron out cried 
out to the man doing the guid- 
ing, "swinjr!" and, no quicker 
than said, the hunters began 
to shake their feet and go at 

it. Of courae, we don't mean 

to say that they have been at- 
tending the "country break- 
downs" in Casey county. 

A Big Turnip Turns Up.

We Arc Going to Have 
An Opera^House. 

Prominent business men of 
the town are now getting plmm 
for the erection of ■ modern 
opera-house, t   be built here 
in the early spring. 

Judge T. J. Ballard is at the 
head of the enterprise, and. 
when asked about the matter, 
s;iid it was true that Lawrence* 
burg was to have a most up- 
to-date opera-house second to 
none to be found ill Central 
Kentucky. While it is his in- 
tention to organise ■ stock

the leading business men of

bnrg to Danville. The right- 
of-way has been secured, and 
work will soon be started in 
earnest. This will be of great 
interest to the people of our 
town and county, as it will not 
only bring us in closer touch 
with Boyle's capital, but cause 
a great increase in travel 
through here, and the running 
of more trains, giving us much 
better railroad accommoda- 

There are various kinds of

beat -in fact, he might be 
called a unique liar. He will 
lie at the Court-house, Friday 
night, Nov. 28th. Along with 
him. comes a clever comedy 
coterie of comedians, attractive 
girls, specialties gsJotC and the 
funniest play that is being ex- 
ploited this season, different 
from most comedy productions 
entour. An attractive, special 

scenic mounting has been given 
"Mr. Plaster of Paris," and. in 
consequence, this funny play 

is seen to the l»cst possible ad- 
vantage. The costuming has 
not been overlooked, and the 
latest and most popular music 
runs through the piece, giving 
it a happy swing.

A Dog That Sets Fish. 

A few days past Messrs. J. L. 
Bond. G. B. Hawkins, T. B. 
Ripy, Jr., and several others 
were out hunting and camped 
for dinner near a spring on the 
Kentucky river, and, while 
arranging things around their 
newly-made camp, one of their 
hunting dogs was missed. 
Failing to bring him in with 
the usual call, a search was 
made, and he was found gaz- 
ing into the clear waters of the 
old Kentucky, as though all 
the speckled variety of the 
feathered tribe had settled 
there. A close examination 
was made, and at the water's 
edge was seen a large fish, 
which Mr. Hawkins succeeded 
in killing with his revolver. 
When weighed at Warren's 
store, the beam show • ! live 
and one-half pounds.

Mr. S. E. Booth, the popular 
superintendent at the Tyrone 
plant of the Kentucky Distil- 
leries and Warehouse Compa- 
ny, has found time to assist 
the young people of that little 
town in the arrangement of 
the drama, "Uncle Rube," to 
be presented at the Watertill 
Hall this evening at 7:30 
o'clock. Much time and pains 
have been taken in getting up 
the play, and, knowing Ed's 
ability along that line, we feel 
confident of its success. The 
following young people will 
take part in the play: Mrs. Ju- 
lia Jelf, Misses Nora Tuttle 
and Lizzie Hahn, and Messrs. 
Elmer Carter, Selley Hahn, 
Gilbert Stevenson, Geo. Rob- 
erts, Joe and Chas. Martin, 
John Hartly and Burton Bos- 
well. Mr. O. Coleman Cox, of 
this city, will render original 
vocal selections. Several of 
our citizens will drive over and 
witness the performance.

While we hail ahout made up 

our minds regarding the hand- 
linn- of county news, wo with- 
hold our opinion until court-da) . 
that we might talk with the 

pooplo of the county and get 
their opinions regarding the 

matter. (  n that day we talked 
with pooplo front all parts of 
the county, and wore glad to 
leam that our views of county 
news well pleased them, and 
wo are now ready to explain to 
all. first, we will say, with 
emphasis, that "IT" is and will 
ever he strictly a county paper. 
No paper has ever made the 
light for that which is to the 
interest of the county as "IX" 
has during its short life, and 
just so long as we gO to ptcss 
 \i will continue t.i make a 
fight lor what we think is due 
the people of the county. We 
will also have correspondents 
in every locality to send in each 
week all new- of importance. 

What we mean by news of im- 
portance is as follows! stock 
sales, real estate sales, crop 

sales, marriages, births, per- 
sonals ami other things of in- 
terest. When wo say personals 
of interest, we mean this: 
should any of our citizens leave 
home on business of pleasure, 
going to another comity or 
state, we look upon it as a 
personal of interest; hut where 

some citixen simply takes din- 
ner on Sunday with a neighbor 
or attends church a low miles 

away we do not think it worthy 
of being classed as news of 
general interest to the people 
of the county. As said, wo 
have talked with our citizens 
from all parts of the county, 

and one and all are of the same 

mind as we as to what is, and 

what is not, count] news. 
Were we to report all such hap- 
penings lu re in town each week 
it would take a paper live times 
the size of "IT" to hold them. 

We have arranged with several 
in different parts of the county 
to write lor us, hut are ) et in 
want of man) more, and woul 
be glad to hear from all who 

feel an interest in our paper 

and their COUHty.

Improve the Grounds. 

A'hat is the matter with the 
grounds around the public 

school building? Too bare! void 

of shade trees or ornaments of 
an) kind, these grounds con- 
stitute a veritable eye-sore. 
True, the building itself is no 
yreal shakes, and would hardly 
be pointed out as a genuine 
model of the skill of a finished 
architect, lint the Hoard id 
Trustees could at least beauti- 
fy the grounds b) setting a 

few trees. The expense would 
ho light and the improved ap- 
pearance would richl) repa) 
the cost of the trees.
