The few nice days have induced the 
people to turn out on the streets in large 
numbers. The people fiioni the country 
are flocking to town to make purchases 
ami business is greatly improving - We 
confidently expect this to be the bast 
business season ever in the history of 
Mt. Sterling. 

The Mutual Building and Loan Associ- 
ation of Mt. Sterling is getting under way 
and promises to be a com plete s uccess. At 
! the meeting on last Tuesday night the 
Board of Directers elected Lewis Apper- 
son Secretary and James H. llazelrigg 
Solicitor. The selection of a Treasurer 
was deferred. By-Laws were adopted 
and the Association put in working order. 
One hundred and eighty-eight shares of 
stock, of 8100 each, were subscribed and 
assessment paid to the Secretary. The 
meetings will be held every Tuesday eve- 
ning at the office of the City Judge and 
all persons who desire informatin can ob- 
tain it by attending the meetings. 


Dr. J. P. Turner, of this county, has 
constructed a chart for use in the school 
of Prof. D. A. Thomson, at Somerset, 
by which the children are enabled more 
readily to master the third declension in 
Latin grammar. The Doctor claims that 
a few lessons given upon the blackboard 
by his system will greatly shorten the 
time and labor in acquiring a knowledge 
of that great difficulty to be met in all 
grammars. It is not our purpose to at 
tempt a description of the chart or sys 
tern but to call attention to it and if up- 
on investigation it shall prove profitable 
to educators they may use the system in 
their schools. Dr. Turner takes great 
interest in education and is especially 
fond of latin.

We have heard of wooden nut megs, 
being sold by the “Yankee” of Connec-

wooden hen eggs, until our friend E. F.

dozen, and guarantees them to neither 
spoil in summer or freeze in winter. 

Many hearts will be sad to learn that 
Sam Spradling, of Campion, is dead. 
He was Circuit and County court clerk 
ot Wolfe county, an excellent officer and 
citizen. A true gentleman, a noble 
hearted genial companion, has been cut 
down in his youth and, as one of his 
countymen remarked, “his place in the 
county cannot be supplied by another.” 

We are reliably informed that the ex- 
tension of the Coal Road into the moun-

here about the 1st of April to survey the 
different routes contemplated, and the 
people in that country should understand 
that the road will be built through that 
section which offers the greatest induce- 
ments and assistance, such as coal and 
timber lauds. 

ers will remember an account given last 
week of a difficulty between Press 
Grubbs and Willis Garrett, which was 
on account of Garrett being too intimate 
with Grubb's wife, and sisters Betty 
Redmon and Sallie Grigsby being ac- 
cessaries to the afiair by aiding and as- 
sisting Garrett. An investigating com- 
mittee of 3 was appointed by the Colored 
M. E. church to look into the case. 
They were accordingly arraigned before a 
committee of 13 for trial. Bro. Samuel 
Keys in the chair. After investigation, 
witnesses beiug examined pro and con 
the charges were sustained and both sis- 
ters expelled, Bettie Iiedmon for 3 years 
and Sallie Grigsby for 4 years.

The Magic Slipper. 

There will be fun for all classes, and 
especially for the little folks. On next 
Monday evening Little Corinne and her 
thirty merry-makers will be here in the 
Magic Slipper. Of the gifted little girl 
and her company the Dubuque Herald 
says : 

She should be seen in her character of 
Cinderella to appreciate her artistic abil- 
ity. The brilliant operatic burlesque, 
‘The Magic Slipper,’ was never 1 letter 
rendered iu Dubuque. It truly abounds 
in ‘fun, pun, inconsistency and improba- 
bility,’ and cannot fail to cure the most 
sensitive dyspeptic. It is filled with tell- 
ing jokes, witticisms, charming parodies, 
eccentricities of song and dance, beauti- 
ful ballads, rhapsodical dialects, operatic 
gems, situations, fairy wonders, brilliant 
costumes, golden coaches, glittering grot- 
toes, gorgeous paraphenalia, beauty of 
person, and all characterized in the most 
scrupulous modesty.

Last week a telegram from Grayson, 
Ky., to the Cincinnati Enquirer stated 
that Wm. Coleman. Collector for the 
Southern Calendar Clock Company, had 
been attacked by four men in Magoffin 
county and killed, after he had killed 
one of the men and wounded another. 
This report having reached St. Louis, 
the headquarters of the Company, the 
President, II. H. Culver, came here to 
investigate the matter on last Saturday 
and made preparations to leave for Ma- 
goffin, but Mr. Coleman came in safe 
and sound. Mr. Coleman left Grayson 
a day or two before the dispatch was sent 
and proceeded to Magoffin and while 
there heard a report that one of the Col- 
lectors of the Company had been killed, 
but he could find no reliable authority 
for the statement. John Remberts, who 
is Collector for Magoffin, also arrived 
here Monday direct from that county 
and says there is no truth in the report. 
Tbe public are warned not to place much 
credence in the dispatches to newspapers 
from Eastern Kentucky while a certain

Gen. Grant told him the story in Cali-

of spring lambs have already been made

It is remarked that the experiment of 
intelligent English farmers at Rugby 
Colony, East Tennessee, will be watched 
with great interest. The English plan 
is thorough farming. High manuring 
and large crops are a part of the system. 

The United States grows a good deal 
of wheat now, 480,000,000 bushels, but 
this is not enough to furnish seed for the

the limits of the United States, all of

Enoch Arden Going Homo. 

He said that being in the city he would 
like to take in the City Hall, and after 
he had tired himself out in climbing stairs 
and walking coroidors he came back to 
the ground floor and remarked to

“It’s seventeen years since I saw 
town before.” 

“Is it?” 

“Seventeen long years — long years 
Did you ever hear any thing in particu- 
lar about a man named Philo Brace?’ 
“Can’t remember that I did.” 

“Ever see any thing in the paper! 
about his mysterious disappearance?” 
“Guess not.” 

“Well, you were too young. I am 
Philo Brace, and seventeen years ago 
this month I disappeared from my home 
in Oakland county in a mysterious man- 
ner, and I’ve never been heard of since. 
I am now on my way home, and sjiall 
be there to-night.” 

Why, that’s quite a romance.” 

Recon it is. I’m a sort of Enoch 
Arden, you see. I left a wife and two 
children, and have never sent them word 
or line. No doubt they have long 
mourned me as dead.” 

“You may find your wife married to 
another as Enoch did,” suggested the 

“Say, I’ve thought of that!” replied

-- There is only one happy woman in 
Russia; it is the priest’s wife; and it is a 
common mode of expression to say. “as 
happy as a priest’s wife." The reason 
why she is happy is because her hus- 
nd’s pqsi*ton depends upon her. If 
A dies he u deposed, and becomes a. 

J^vmt^rUG'.’ property is taken away 
f hinl, and distributed, half to his 
children and half to the Government. 
This dreadful contingency makes the 
Russian priest careful to get a healthy 
wife, if he can, and makes him take ex- 
traordinary good care ot her after he has 
got her. . He waits upon her in the most 
abject way. jf'he must never get her feet 
et, and sic is’ fitted and put in hot 
,ets if she has so much as a cold in 
hoi head. It is t f ie neatest possible good 
fortune lbr a girPWrnarry a priest, infi- 
nitely better than to be the wife of a no-
