Why is it that in most towns 
the telephone poles are painted 
and made to look like they had 
a rijjht in the city, and were 
nut a strinif of limbless cedar 
trees alony a country hillside. 
In most every city of any size 
the city nquiret this done, 
and the telephone people arc 
not in the least slow to comply 
with the law, for the paintint; 
of the poles protects them, and 
truarantees many nuire years of 
use. While we have I ecome 
sdinewhat accustomed to their 
looks ourselves, to stranifers it 
seems thongh some one had 
neglected their duty. 

City fathers, instruct your 
clerk to request this work 
done, and if the request is not 
complied with, then pass a 
city ordinance requiring it, 
and then make your rec|uest in 
the form of a demand. 

Dr, Charles Adam Leathers, 

The subject of this sketch. 
Dr. C .\. Leathers, was born 
January 12. 1860, at Yolo, 
C:;!., being a son of Valois 
and Rosema Leathers, who 
came to Anderson county in 
1865, locatingr near Leathers' 
store. After attendinj,' the 
common schools ol the county, 
Dr. Leathers entrred the Ken- 
tucky -Military Institute, from 
which he tjraduated with hi^rh 
honors in 1S7' . He at once

In IS'lS the Lawrencebur^r

the business, was made man-

The afternoon passenger 
train from Lexington Sundav 
came near being wrecked 
in the Urn;;' cut ,it Young's 
high bridge. Owing to 
the heavy fall of rain of 
Saturday and Sunday, a cave- 
in of the cut occurred, and 
had the engineer not had his 
train [so well under control, a 
wreck that would have cost 
many lives would no doubt 
occurred. As it was, the 
engine was i|uite badly smash- 
ed, and the steps ol some of 
the cars torn from their last- 

Brakunan KiUed. 

John Lang, a I)rakeni;in on 
the Southern, while .ittempt- 
ing to board his train at lUisev , 
Friday night, fell undir the 
cars and had both of his legs 
cut off, from which he died be- 
fore reaching home. Lang 
was well known here among 
the railroad men, and quite 
I popular. He was twenty 
I years of age and single. 

entere l the Medical Depart- 
ment of the University of 
Louisville, graduating with 
the class of 1882. That was 
quite an eventful year in Dr. 
Uathm' lift, for not only did 
he graduate in medicine, but 
came here, establishing a good 
practice, and succeeded in win- 
ning the hand of Miss Alice 
Waterfill, one of Anderson 
county's most beautiful young 
ladies, she being the oldest 
daughter of W. J. Waterfill, 
one of our moat woalthy and

sole owner. Aside from his 
professional duties, and the 
time needed at the store, Dr. 
Leathers has found the time 
to do considerable manufactur- 
ing of face creams and curat 
for different ailments, for 
which there is a large demand. 
Dr. Leathers is a prominent 
Mason, and a strong advocate 
of a Btttintat Men's Club to 
promote the interests of the 
town and county.

T, I BALLARD, the Druggist 

Last Saturday was V:ikn- 
tiae Day, and many were they 
who were made vlad, sad and 

mad upon opening letters and 

packages received from un- 
known senders. Being a little 
on the watch to see the kind 
received by some of our citi- 
zens, we were lucky enoutrh to 
see a few of them, which we 
give, believing as we do that 
they will be appreciated by 
onr town and county readers. 
The first one we had the 
opportunity to read was the 
one received by our city fath- 
ers, which read as follows :

So long as Judge Walker 
was clever enough to show us 
the above, it ia hardly tight to 
tell on him, but here goes :

Ai roa hare loni baan wlaklni;

Some one of the county was 
mean enough to send our fiscal 

court a very sad and pathetic 
one, and, through the good- 
ness of one of them, we are 
able to give it in full :

As these were shown us on 

the Q T, we'll ask that you 
not repeat, for you well know 
there is no truth in any of 
thtm, and were evidently sent 

to ni.ikc i)coi)lc think that our 
city fathers have a right to be 
looking out for water-works 
and electric lights for the city, 
and that our county roads are 
not in good condition. We 
ask, for that reason, that you 
keep the matter i|uiet. 

Misses Hallie lyillard, Kiiby 
Leathers and Mabel Spencer, 
three of Lawrence burg's most 
popular young ladies, possess 
talents that, if cultivated, 
would make even Gibson, the 
great artist, jealous. While 
it is true that these young 
ladies have never made a 
studs, Of rather have iie\er 
t.iUeii a lesson in pen drawing, 
their work, which is being dis- 
played at several of the stores 
in the city, would cause one to 
think quite different. Their 
work has been much admired 
and complimented, and those, 
thus gifted, should take the 
advantage of their talents. 

Mrs. (leo. Mcliride, of f^ouis- 
ville, is (]uite sick at the home 
of her parents, Mr. and .Mrs.

X3raduat ng Class of 1903 
Entertained by 

Th» Lawrenceburar Graded 
Schools will, this year, gra(\- 
uate the larfrest class of its 
history, and, on last Friday 
nijjht, I'rof. Hell, the efficient 
Principal of the school, ten- 
dered the class a riccption, 
which will be lontf remember- 
ed by all of then as one of the 
most enjoyable occasions of 
their lives. There arc sixteen 
members of this class, and not 
only is it the largest ever 
irraduated here, but it is one 
of the best in class standing, 
and all but one of the class 
were present durint; the even- 

At the entertainment of 
that evening, the house was 

handsomely decorated in 
hearts, i)rosumably in honor of 
St. \'alentine"s day, even the 
cakes which graced the table 
at luncheon being baked in 
heart shape. 

The first i^amc played was a 
"Heart Hunt," in which the 
lost organ was found by Miss 
Mae Tfent, while Miss Mabel 
Spencer proved hei«elf the 
RMMt skillful hunter present, 
capturing: more of the elusive 
hearts than any other contest- 
ant. The prizes were heart 
shaped pins. 

Then came a game of Hearts, 
in which the first prize was 
won by Miss Mabel Spencer; 
the second, by Miss Mae 
Trent, while the "Booby" 
prize was taken by Harry 

After this came a Word 
Contest, the first prize goinjf 
to Miss Bessie Grain and the 
second to Clarence Woods; 
and, after this, came the Fish 
Pond, in which none but mem- 
ben of the class were allowed 
to flsh. The Ibh proved to be 
valentines, enclosed in envel- 
opes, containing goM pins, 
with a settins: of highly orna- 
mented hearts. 

An elegant luncheon was 
served and music furnished by 
Ezra Fiddler, the well-known 
"Rag-Time" Piano player. 

The members of the class 
are: Misses Artie Ripy, Mabel 
Spencer, Nell Campbell, Allie 
Lyen, Mae Trent, Martha 
Moore, Kmma (Ireene, Bessie

Masonic Temple. 

At their meeting last Friday 
night, the Masons decided to 

build their Temple on the 
Shipman lot on Main street, 
where we have always thought 
it should be located, if the 
property could l)e bought at a 
reasonable (igure, because of 
the central location and con- 
venience of access, as well as 
the facilities for approach both 
from the front and rear. The 
building, we are informed, 
will be three stories high, with 
one store-room and an opera- 
house on the first floor, and 
lodge-rooms on the sokukI and 
third. This is a movement 
which we have long advo- 
cated, and which we are iflad 
to see the Masons take hold of. 
First, because of the increased 
beauty of the city, resulting 
from the erection of such a 
building on our Main street. 
Second, because IUk- Masons 
are the local roprr^rntatives 
of tlio oldest Krat^ order 
in existence, and are abund- 
antly able to carry the project 
to final completion. We heart- 
ily commend this great organ- 
ization for its determination to 
erect a building which will 
afford them a home, of which 
they iiiav well Ik- proud, and 
which will l)e worthy of the 
traditions of their order. 

Finally, let us say that if 
others will follow the lead of 
the Maaona, Lawrenoeburg 
will, at no distant day, be as 
widely known for her enter- 
prise and progressiveness, as 
she is to-day known for the 
manufacture of wliiskv.

Dr. C. A. LEATHERS, Sol* Own«r. 

Some weeks past a gentle- 
man of this county, who is 
greatly interested in the poul- 
try business, made a trip to 
Sidney, Ohio, to iaapect the 
large chicken indnatry of John 
Lauffhlin, and a talk with him

fattcninir of chickent by 
machinery i* Indeed interest-

Mr. Ivjuitflilin has in use .^0 
incubators, which are heated 
by ateain, and 90 daya after 
the chicken has been hatohed it 
is on its way to Boston in a 
refrigerator car as a two- 
pound broiler. This one party, 
whose plant uses up many 
acres of ground, sells each 
vear one hundred thousand of 
these broilers to Eastern 
marints, as well as seventy- 
three thousand doaen of eggs.

chickens in car load lots of 
five and ten daily, which are 
fattened by the new process. 

The first thing to be done to 
a newly arrived car of chick- 
ens is* to place them in what is 
called the greasing room, 
where each one is greased and 
kept so for three days, that all 
vermin may be killed and the 
chicken made healthy. After 
that they are taken to the 
stuffing room, where 35 men 
are in charge of machines. 
Upon each machine there is a 
small tube, and this tube is 
inserted in the craw of the 
chicken, and the craw is filled 
with food and chemicals. 

After 1.^ days of this man- 
ner of feedinjf the fowl is fat, 
having gained from three to 
four and a half poimds, and is 
ready for the slaughter house, 
from there io the cold ftorage, 
and thence to Eastern markets. 
An average daily shipment 
from that place is six tons. A 
machine fattening house has 
recently Ix-en established near 
Topeka, Kas., with a slaught- 
ering capacity of 5,000 a day. 
The gentleman states that 
there is one man in Laughlin's 
employ who can fatten 800 
chickens a day. The average 
man only fattens 400.

'WIDE orsN; 


Why is it that when a few 
nwB who enjoy a littk ffame of 
draw^poker occasionally have 

to crather together like sneak 
thieves, jroing up and down 
every side street in the city, 
up and down stairs and then 
into some dark and dreary 
hole in the wall to spend a 
few hours at their (fame, only 
to learn after the game is 
started that they have been 
watched with an eagle eye, 
and, if not arrested then and 
there, their names are report- 
ed to the tcrand jury and they 
are indii tcd and l)r(nit,'-ht into 
court and lined twiiity-tive or 
titty dollars, when we have, 
riffht here on Main street, a 
gaminf room in which more 
money is won and lost in a 
day than was ever lost over 
any poker table in the city. 
Again, when these poker play- 
ers have a game, it is conduct- 
od in a most (iiiiot manner; no 
one but the players arc per- 
mitted in the room; no drunk- 
en men are there to use pro- 
fane language, nor little boys 
present to learn gambling. Is 
there a boy in this city, is 
there a man in this city or, in 
fact, a lady who has not heard, 
even from the side-walks, men 
cry out, " nicke'-.'-do," or 
" nickel-e-don't?" These bet- 
tors are, as a rule, "nitfyfers" 
and boys who have only small 
amounts to gamble with, while 
older ones cry out their wil- 
lingness to wager anywhere 
from two to twenty dollars. 
On Monday, while passing 
this place, I heard one man 
cry out, " I'll l)et any s - of a 
b— twenty dollars to fifteen 
that I can knock a baby." 
Now, is not that nice lan- 
guage for your mother, sister, 
wife, daughter or little boy to 
listen to while walkinff the 
along the main thoroughfare 
of our little city? Boys are 
attracted to this place by the 
music and excitement of bet- 
ting, and, try as hard as he 
may to keep the little fellows 
out, the manager finds that 
ther will mix up with the 
crowd and bet their nickels on 
the fall of one of the babies. 

Personally, we like the man- 
ager of this game, and have 
no desire to do him an injus- 
tice, but we believe we are 
voicing the sentiments of eve- 
ry law-abiding citizen of the 
dty in calling the attention of 
the dty officials to this "open 
game." It is not a game of sci- 
but one upon which 
is won and lost. It is 
that it is bound to 

have its bearing upon the 
young boys of the city. It 
brings about a gathering of a 
certain element of white peo- 
ple and "niggers" that guar- 
antees business in our courts 
sooner or later. We are no 
friends of jfamblinjf when it is 
conducted by men who even 
follow it as a business, or for 
pleasure, and conduct it in a 
quiet manner, and we do hon- 
estly and candidly believe that, 
if there is to be license issued 
for the operation of this game, 
there should be no hesitancy 
on the part of our city officials 
in issuintf them to the poker 
player, the ojyerator of the 
faro game or the operator of 
the roulette wheel. When those 
licenses are granted, set a slot 
machine against each lamp 
post, and across each road en- 
tering the city suspend a large 
sign to Kad, "WlOB OPBN." 

The truats are now pre- 
pared for a clean sweep. A 
broom trust has been organ- 
ised, with h capital stock of 

$2,500,000. About all we have 
left from the trusts is sun, 
moon and star light. We also 
liave air just at present, but 
as soon as they can, com- 
pressed air will be worth S'J.OO 
a vial, and it will be a common 
thing* to have a man come up 
and say to you: Say, old man, 
let me have a breath out of 
your bottle; I haven't had a 
breath for two days; am jfoing 
to town to-niorriiw to tjet 
some, and when I y:et niy 
breath I will sto)) and leave 
your breath with your wife 
for you. Oh« it's coming! 

Jeffries and the other 
"pugs" have teamed what 
the Montoc doctrine is as well 
as Germany. 


I have in my possession many 
NbleSf and on my bookt many Ac^ 
countSf that are long past due« and« as 
these are matters that must be settled at 

once, I ask you to give them your at' 
tention before March 1st 

All such not settled by that dale will be turned 
over to my attorney for collection, 

Very Respectfully,

The Anderson News came 
out last Thursday morning all 
dressed up in the latest stvle, 
the site of the News having 

been changed from a four- 
page, nine-column, to an 
eight-page, six-column. While 
there is but room for ten 
inches more of local reading 
matter, the size is much more 
convenient to be handled by 
the reader, and as the patent 
print is placed on the inside of 
the new style sheet, the paper 
presents a much better ap- 
pearance. It is a great im- 
provement over the old style 
blanket sheet, and Mr. Uaw- 
kina k to be congratulated 
upon the chug* ia Ita mak*- 

A Burgin man was chased 
for two miles one night last 

week by a wild beast, which 
he descril)cs as being as large 
as a calf, and with eyes of 
fire, and which ceased the pur- 
suit of the man on horse when 
frightened off by the brightly 
lighted city of Burgin. No 
such fright would have put a 
stop to the chats near our dty, 
but the rider couM have 
brought Um beaat on into 
town and lost him in the dark- 

New that the Masons have 
decided to build a home in thia 
dty, and also an opera-house 

that will not only be a credit 

to our city, but to any city of 
three times our population, the 
general opinion is that the 
Masonic order has a bank ac- 
count which is unlimited, 
and all they have to  lo is to 
select the plan of the archi- 
tect, let the contract, and, 
when the work is completed, 
give a check for the amount, 
and charge it up as pin money. 
Far from this. Wo are told 
by some of the leading num- 
bers of the order that the 
buihlintr is to be erected by 
popular subscription among 
their members, and while con- 
tribution will not be generally 
solicited except among their 
members, such business 
men and people on the outside 
as have an interest in the 
improving of the town, and 
l)enelit that all will receive 
from the erecting of it, are at 
perfect liberty to make con- 
tributions, and such will be 
greatly appreciated. Would 
it not be a good idea for some 
business man or citisen, not a 
member of the order, to call 
on the business men and prop- 
erty-owners of the city, and 
give them an opportunity to 
assist in. and insure the erect- 
ing of the building at an 
early date? We do not believe 
that there is anyone of either 
claaa who would not feel that 
it is to his interest to 
give, and give liberally to- 
wards it.

The Louisville Times of 
Saturday says that ' IT" is a 
bright and newsy paper, and 
covers Anderson county like a 
l)lanket, Kight you are, and 
fast the blanket is daily 
stretching over the neighbor- 
ing counties. So original in 
every respect is "IT" that 
few there are who, after 
reading a copy of "IT," will 
hesitate in subscribing for 
"IT" at the low price of 50c.

With egKM br the Btairway 

cut off bj flames, Miss Mary 
Martin, a school teacher at 
Thayer, 111., saved the lives of 
fifty children by dropping 
them from the second-story 
window, which crippled many 
of them for life, though no 
Uvea were loat. We fcpeat 
the above aa read from the pa- 
pen Tuesday, thinking that it 
miffht call to mind the fact 
that there is not a day but 
what the children of Kawrencc- 
biirtj have the same opportu- 
nities of meeting such a fate 
at the dilapidated old "shack" 
that we have for a city achool 
buildingr. By this lady suc- 
ceeding in saving these 
roung lives, we judge that 
the buildintf was of brick, and, 
such hcintr the case, she had 
plenty of time to save the lit- 
tle folks; but, were a fire to 
start in the old building we 
have, it would bum like so 
much powder, and there would 
be little chance to rescue any- 
body. " Oh, our house is all 
right; there is no danger," 
you say. Yes, and that is 
what the fathers and mothers 
of Thayer, 111., thoutfht on 
last Tuesday morning, when 
they filled the lunch baskets 
and kissed their little loved 
onea good-bye for the day, and 
which came so near beinff for  
ever. Now is the time to 
think about this matter and 
start in to erect a building i 
that will insure safety and be 
a pride to our city. 

You sav we are advocating 
too many improvements. 'Tis 
true that we advocate many 
improvencata. But, have we 
advocated anything that is 
not needed? Look at our 
oeil^boriag towns, and then 
look at our own and say, if 
you can, but what we are 
right. But, you say, these 
things cost money. To be 
sure they dot You are not la- 
boring under the impression 
that some Carnegie is going 
around giving our neighbor- 
ing towns their water-works, 
electric lights, court-house, 
opera-house, turnpikes, city 
school buildintjs, etc., are you? 
We believe that some of you 
are laboring under that im- 
pression, when we hear your 
Iricka on public improvements. 
If w« are right, help us to 
light for that which you know 
ia right, and, if we are wrong, 
drop us a line, explaining why, 
and we will try to right the 
wrong we have done. 


One hundred and seventy-one 

years ago next Sunday, the 
Father of this country first 
opened his eyes to the light of 
this world and so endurintj and 
wide spread is his fame, that 
in every dviliaed oountry.'on 
earth thia day will be cel- 
ebrated ia aone maaaer. Min- 
isters of the gospel will dwell 
with fervMT oa his religious 
life in their sermons; States- 
men and politicians will laud 
his civil virtues and extol his 
political ideas at the formal 
banquet and the scarcely leia 
formal public dinner; achool 
teachers on Friday or Satufw 
day will apeak to their pupils 
of his child life and the gradual 
development of those qualities 
of heart .ind brain which in 
later years made him the un- 
approachable character he was, 
the typical soldier, the model 
citizen, the prophetic states- 
man and the hoaest politician. 
And it ia well that all these 
things should be done, but it 
would be far better if all those 
having in charge the welfare 
of the nation founded by his 
genius and statesmanship 
would lay to heart, and put 
into practice the suggestions 
made in his farewell address 
for insuring the perpetuity, 
the prosperity and the happi- 
ness of this people. 

Could this be done, we would 
have no more of the unseemly 
striving for mere party advan- 

tage, which haa disgraced so 

many of oar Statea ia the last 
five years. Bribery, corrup- 
tion and ring rule would be 

things of the past; class legis- 
lation would be heard of no 
more; corporations, trusts and 
syndicates would no longer be 
the oppressors of the people, 
but become their aervanta; 
only the beat men would be 
selected for ofldal positions; 
equality of opportunity would 
come to all men, and all would 
work together for the good of 
the whole people. 

Let us continue to celebrate 
this day, but let us so cele- 
brate as to briiitf only good to 
the people and to the country 
at large. 

We know that you know that 
it ia cold; that we have just 

had one of the worst blizzards 
that we have suffered in years, 
and, as news, we do not attempt 
to tell you of that which you 
so well know, but just mention 
the factof ourhavinjr the heavy 
snow and below-zero weather 
that any readers in the sunny 
south may know what we have 
this week in "Old Kaintuck."

Mr. John Bodkin, of Shel- 
byville, was here Monday to 
talk with the tobacco growers 
of the county, and to interest 
them in the Tobacco Growers 
Association. Had it been a 
day that the faraiera could 
have ooaM to (owa withoat 
braving a blinard, the court- 
house would not have held 
them, but the weather kept 
them at home: and, while the 
meeting was a very enthusi- 
astic one, so large a crowd as 
was expected was not present. 
So wrought up over the 
"bunco" game that the grow- 
ers have had to go agaiaat in 
aelling their crops this year, 
twenty-flve or thirty of them 
were willing to come through 
any kind of weather to prom- 
ise their support to the new 
organization that promised 
them some protection from 
these Louisville "grafters" 
that had in the paat taken 
their cropa at pricea to auit 
themselves. From the inter- 
est shown here, and in other 
parts of the State, we cannot 
believe that there is to-day a 
sane farmer or tfrower of 
tobacco in Anderson county 
but who will tjive this orjran- 
ization his support. Of this 
county, Mr. Bea. Franklia was 
made Chairman, B. H. BoWkn, 
Secretary, and Mr. John 
L. Gunter, Ex. committeeman. 
The Association will meet in 
Lexington on the 26th of this 
month, and delegates from all 
counties in the State will tx- • 
there. Many of those present 
Monday took atock in the new 
venture at amounta ranging 
from taoo to t3,000. The fol-

The followintr is an extract 
from a letter just received 
fron Mr. Williuns reuardin^ 
the biiildiiiffof a lar£:e roller 
mill at thit place: "You can 
say to the people of Andenoa 
count)- that the mill which we 
will erect, and for which we 
now have plans drawn, will 
have a capacity of 2(KI barrels 
a day, and will be the most 
modem mill in Central Ken* 
tnchj. We believe that Law- 
reooebary, centrally located 
as it is, is the place best suited 
for us to locate a mill to han- 
dle the K^rowth of Central 
Kentucky's ijrrain. The com- 
pany is well backed by capital 
and experience, and work will 
be betfun just as soon as the 
weather will permit." While 
we are tuable to learn as to 
the exact location of the new 
mill, rumor has it that it will 
be erected on the railroad not 
far from the depot. 

Mr. Marion L. Chowning, 
our popular Superintendent of 
Public Schools, has purchased 
a half interest in the Ander- 
son News, and will devote 
wliat time he can spare from 
his public duties to the g^ath- 
eriny: up of niws lor the 
News. Mr. Chowniiit;' is well 
known in the county; and, 
while he has had no expe- 
rience in the newspaper field, 
the News readers can rest 
assured that he will take to it 
like ducks to water, and grive 
them a good readable paper.

T(i-(lay we present to our 
readers twelve i)au'es of town 
and county news. We are 
conceited enough to think it 
the best paper ever published 
in Anderson county, and for 
home news second to no 
county paper published in 
Kentucky. Should you doubt 
this statement, jfet out your 
rule and measure your inches 
of readint,' matter, after wliich 
measure any other paper you 
wish, and let us know if we 
are wrong in our judgment. 
Remember, that the rule must 
go on no plate matter, no 
patent print, no copy from 
any other paper, but on only 
that which is new, true and 
orijjinal, as is IT's matter. 

We notice that Capt. Peary 
is arranyinif to make another

for him to come down here in

here Tuesday morning, he 
would have been ready for the 
trip Wednesday, dressed in a 
seersucker coat, linen duster, 
buckeye hat and low cut shoes.

Last week » gentlemsii from 

Alton came to me and wanted 

to know what money it would 
take to buy my paper, or 
rather niy editorial column, 
for Mr. J. H. fhenault in his 
raee for State Auditor. He 
stated that he had l)een sent 
to me by other parties, and 
was not interested in the least 
himself, and I believe his 
statements about that part of 
the matter, for I had already 
learned that a certain jr»-ntle- 
inan of Alton had called to see 
me a few days previous after 
havinir been unsuccessful in 
his attempt to buy Mr. Haw- 
kins, of the News. I do m t 
know Mr. Chenault, onl  
throuflrh an introduction to 
him on our streets here by Mr. 
Hiter Crockett, of Frankfort. 
I was favorably impressed 
with him, and Ix'inir a ^jreat 
friend of Mr. Crockett's, I 
promised him my vote in his 
race. But if he or his work- 
ers think that they can go 
aboat buyiaff up newspaper 
editors like sheep, they have 
missed their jfuess. While I 
have at all times, since the 
startintj of this paper, re- 
frained from voicin^f the senti- 
ments of any party or candi- 
date, and expect to do the 
same in the future, I cannot 
but remsmber the insult that 
Mr. Chenault's workers have 
thrown at me, and I am confi* 
dent that they have gained 
little, and my memory will be 
refreshed of their attempt to 
buy up the press of this county 
when I read the name of Jud^e 
S. W. Haffer on the ballot 
handed me Iqr the dark of the 
election on tha nondaK of 
May 9th. 

We have repeatedly sue- 
ffested to the ministers and 
dsaootts of the many churches 
of our city that they furnish 

us each week with the name 
of minister, subject, and, in 

fact, any other announce- 
ments that would be of inter- 
est to the church-tfoiuff people 
of the city. We tjet their 
promises, but that is all; and 
no one knows, when they go 
to church on Sunday, whether 
the regular minister or a visi- 
tor is to occupy the pulpit, 
what subject has been chosen, 
or, in fact, anythinjj else re- 
trardinn the doinjrs at (lod's 
house. These are matters 
that the public are interested 
in, and so \ong as we are only 
too glad to give the space nec- 
essary, it docs look like the 
church workers should give 
the matter sonte thought. 
This shall be our last request, 
and if you do not ^^et the an- 
nouncements from now on, 
renieml)er that it is through 
no fault of ours, bat the fault 
of insuflBcient interest taken 
by the ministers and church 
workers in not making more 
of an effort to get the people 
out to worship on Sunday, or 
at prayer-meetings during the 

Anottier Mad Dog Bites a 
Child at Van Buren. 

Mr. W. (). .limes, who was 
for some time located here, 
was in town Saturday to see 
his old friends. Mr. Jones is 
one of the best trainers of 
running horses in the State, 
and at present has char^'e of 
McBrayer Moore's string of 
fast ones. Bill is much in 
love with ly.iwreiicehurtr, and 
his greatest wish is to he able 
to s]K riil the rest of his days 
here. ;ind he says that should 
fate so make that impossible, 
and death overtake him, he 
wants to be buried here by 
those friends he loves so well. 

On last Thursday, the little 
eight-year-old son of Mrs. Ide 
Lonjf, of Van Buren, was 
broujfht to this place to have 
the mad stone applied to a 
wound on his hand made by a 
rabid dog some days past. 
When the stona was applied, 
it adhered one hour and forty 

Last week we published an 
article, and, in fact, there has 
scarcely been an issue of this 
I paper gfotten out in the three 
J months it has been issued, 
that has not contained an arti- 
cle about people being bitten 
by mad dogs. Is it not high 
time that the good people of 
the county shoulder arms and 
go on a dog hunt and kill 
everyone to be found? The 
time of year is now near at 
hand for the repoits to be com- 
intf in of sheep beiiifj killed, 
and now would be a yood time 
to put a stop to such losses. 
You may have dogs 'that you 
are fond of, and, by them like 
by your children, you think 
there is no wrong that they 
could do. Both have happen- 
ed. People who have dogs of 
value should keep them chain- 
ed or housed, and held per- 
sonally responsible for damage 
to property and loss of life, 
and to all others that are not 
so kept, a "button** or a load 
of shot given. 

A Richmond correspondent 
for a Looiavilla paper atates 

that, while two men were 

drunk, one shot the other 
to death and then killed him- 
self, and then the writer adds 
that the cause of killing was 
unknown. Looks to us that 
any sane man would not need 
more than three guesses at 
that problem. 

liach day's advertising has 
the aecnmulated force of all 
that have gone before. Don't 
spend twenty canta for a four-

Last week three negroes got 
into a fight over a game of 
craps here in town and the 
' 'cuss" words were freely passed 
until the street was reached, 
when one nejjro whose name 
is said to he McKee, picked up 
a brick an l told the two who 
were following him up to cease 
their pursuit. This they failed 
to do, and he let fly the 
brick, which struck one of the 
negroea in the head and bound- 
ed over to the cranium of the 
other, which sent both down 
"for the count." No arrests were 
made, as few saw the "scrap," 
and the oius who were taking 
part in it swore out no warrants. 

W. H. Morgan & wife were 
here the first of the week 
visiting relatives. Mr. Mor-

If the congressional commit-

appeared on laat Sunday mom

the Omnibus Bill reported a 
few weeks since, would certain- 
ly have contained an appropri- 
ation for this city. While 
there were not more than 
twenty people in the lobby, it 
was almost impossitdc for one 
to pass from the door to the 
boxes, and anr thinff lUn free- 
dom of movement waa oat of

There has been so many in 

to tell us what to tell others, 

through our paper, how to 
manage the turni)ikes; how 
to build them; how to get the 
rock; how to make cuts that 
won't wash and fills that will 
stand, that we have just de- 
cided to call on any and all 
who have suggestions to make, 
end we will gladly give the 
space for their puUication. 
Now let ns hear from yon. 

The law and order sermons, 
which were preached in Louis- 
ville Sunday week, did much 
good, as we note from the 
papers of that city that only 
two murders were committed 
there during the week. 

Only seven people have been 
bitten by mad dogs in this 
county during the paat week. 
Don't you think it is about 
time to do a little dog hilliag 
in this county?

Military Company, 

Since the Carter gaurds, 
of Tyrone were mustered out 
of the service of the State, 
some weeks ago, Capt. R. A. 
McKee, late Commandant of 
Cadets at the State College, 
and Capt. C. M. Lillard, Jr., 
a farmer cadet at West Point, 
have taken the initial steps for 
the organization of a Company 
of State Militia at this plate. 
Some tifty men have signed 
the roll, and the list has been 
forwarded to the Governor, 
with the recommendation of 
the County Judge for approval. 
Under the new law providing 
for the organization of the 
State Guards, this branch of 
the military service really 
constitutes the reserve force of 
the United States Army, 
the troops being armed and 
equipped by the general Gov- 
enuaent, being furnished 
their uniform and KragKJofw 
genson rifles by the United 
States. They are also re- 
quired to go into camp once a 
year with the regular troops, 
and are at all times subject to a 
call to active duty on behalf 
of the United States. Capt. 
McKee has arranged to go to 

another State to reside, and it 
is understood that Capt. Liil* 
lard will be selected as com* 
inanderof the company when 
it is mustered into the service.

The recent swindle at St. 
Lotti*. Mo., peipetrated by 
the Turf Investment Co., 
which has just brought to 
light the facts that the people 
of that and othiT Staros had 
Iwoii "buncoed" for a half 
million of dollars hv these 
"iret-rich-iiuick" promoters, in 
which they are the only ones 
who succeed in cettinff rich at 
the expense of the people who 
go blindly into things, has 
caused a full investigation of 
all such companies in that 
State, and their beiiitr liirced 
to close their doors and  iiiit 
l)usine-s. We had the same 
kind of a bunch of "bunco" 
steers here at Lexington, and 
although their doors were 
closed, and they were indicted 
by the grand jury four or five 
times, each upon the charge 
of embezzlement, not one of 
them has ever been pun- 
islu'd. Two of the rinn lead- 
ers that came over to this city 
and induced their friends to 
get on to the good thing, 
stand indicted in the Fayette 
County Court, each upon four 
plain charges of stealing, and 
though court has come and 
passed in that county the 
prosecutinji' attorney, J. K. 
Allen, has them passed and 
re-passed, or, in other words, 
is wearing them out with age. 
H. L. Harlan and Fred Bart- 
lett, the two head liners of the 
American Investment Co., and 
whom our duped citizens 
would like to see wearing 
stripes, are said to be in 
Chicago operating a "bucket 
shop" on a most gigantic plati. 
One trentleman from here, who 
has made many trips to Lex- 
ington to investigate and 
proaecute these men, tells us 
that there it not a lawyer in 
Lexington who will prosecute 
them, or a newspaper that will 
say a word against them, or 
even suggest that justice 
should be dealt out to those 
guilty of this most ifiifantic 
thievery. One of the leadinjj 
attorneys there states that he 
would take the cases against 
them and fwoaecute them, but 
that John R. Allen has no 
intention whatever of prosecu- 
ting the cases, and that it 
would be folly for a man to 
take a case and expect to do 
any good under such circum- 
stances. With such a prose- 
cuting attorney, there is little 

wonder that I^exinuton holds 
the banner high over all cities 
in the United States as the 
home of crime. 

Pastor CdM. 

Rev. W. T. Martin, who is 
teachinfr a winter school at the 
Rutherford school house, has 
been called to preach for them 
by the congregation of Mt 
Pleasant Baptist church. Mr. 
Martin is a consecrated and in- 
tellectual man, and this church 
is to be congratulated upon 
securing his services. While 
the Haptist church in this city 
was without a pastor, he lilled 
the pulpit as a supply, preach- 
ing with great acceptability. 

Committee Meeting. 

'Phe Democratic County 
Committee will meet at the 
Circuit Court Clerk's office 
Saturday morning at 10

of fixing the dates, manner

J, Shouse & Co, 

We are told that certain 
parties have been to the editor 
of the News, and asked that 
he answer my article regard- 
ing the condition of the roads, 
court-house, county house, 
and, in fact, all public prop- 
erty which I have from time to 
time called the attention of 
the public to. Knowing, as 
Mr. Hawkins must know, that 
I have only told the truth 
about the matter, he would 
not use the article. I say 
now, as I have aaid at all 
times, I stand ready and will* 
ing to give up to anyone of 
the Fiscal Court the same 
amount of space in my paper 
in explaining as I have used in 
any article to which offense 
may have been taken. Yes,

Postmaster Hutcheson has 
been notilied that Col. H. G. 
Rising will be in this county 
within the next few weeks to 
survey the new routes, for 
which petitions have been 
filed. Col. Rising has just 
established four routes in 
Owen county, and while there, 
told the postmaster in Owen- 
ton that he had orders to come 
here as early as p(jssible. I^'t 
other petitions be circulated 
so that other routes may be 
established, and the benefits 
of free delivery extended to 
other partt of the county. 

Narrow Escape. 

On Tuesday morning, Geo. 
Basey, a colored man who 
lives in "The Grove," and is 
employed as teameter for Mr. 
John Dowling, awoke, and, 
finding that winter had come 
again, decided to start a fire 
in his stove by the use of coal 
oil, but, in his hurry, he got 
hold of a can of gasoline, and, 
when he started to pouring it 
on to the" fire, it quickly ignit- 
ed, blowing the can to atoms 
and burning him so badly 
about the face and hands that 
it was first thought the bums 
were such as would prove fa- 
tal. Dr. Davis was called in 
to dressed the wounds, and 
says that the man is now out 
of dantrer, but sulTiring con- 
siderably I'roMi wounds.
