county many yean ago. ''Aunt" Lis-

statement that a young woman was
left at her house and subsequently be-
coming a mother is true, as Is also the
statement that the woman mysterious-

to the age of 13 years before he left the
county. Capt. ~5. G- Butler, of this
city, and other citizens of the county
remember distinctly of seeing him
upon several occasions. If the story
should prove of interest to the readers
of the News I will be amply paid for
writing it.— The Author.]
In the year 1842, in Adair county.
Ky., there resided in an unfrequented
portion of It an old lady who was fa-
miliarly known as "Aunt" Lizzie
Sharpe. She was the midwife for all
the married ladies living within five
miles of her humble home, and perhaps
I death she had been present at
births than any other v
kind old lady, a strict member of the
Baptist church, and in all her under-
takings she called upon her God to aid
her In carrying them to a successful
(nation. She lived alone, about
seven miles from Columbia, her home
being a double log house. It was fur
ulshsd with old time furniture, and
" he had a number of comfortable
feather beds, two cows, one horse, a
few hogs, and a well supplied poultry
One Thursday evening in the month
of May. 1842, just as the sun was set-
a gentleman, elegantly dressed,
driving a spirited span of horses, ac-
companied by a young woman, stop-
it "Aunt" Lizzies' gate. The
gentleman alighted walked to the
door and knocked. It was soon an-
swered by the old lady who appeared In
a nice home woven dress and wearing
"Is this where "Aunt" Lizzie Sharp
resides?" said the gentleman.
Yes, sir; I am that lady; will you
accepting the invitation the gentle-
man entered the building, and after a
short consultation with the old lady,
he returned to the buggy, said a few
words to the young lady, who stepped
from the vehicle and accompanied the

team being cared for, tea was soon
ready and the two weary travelers sat

suspected that they were on a very Im-

that their object in paying her a visit
would soon be made known.'
Finally the gentleman asked "Aunt"
Lizzie to show the young woman to bet

entering the room the gentleman
gave "Aunt" Lizzie to understand
the object of his mission. The
lady belonged to a wealthy family In
in the Blue Grass section of the State:
she had been betrayed, and was soon
to become a mother. In ord(
her shame and save the family to which
she belonged from disgrace, he desired
to board her until after the critical
hour of her life, promising to pay a lib-
eral sum for her comfortable care. The
The agreement was made, and the gen-
tleman retired, occupying a dlfteren
room from the one in which the young
lady was sleeping.
The next morning after a very early
breakfast the gentleman had a few
words with the tyoung lady, handed
• Aunt" Lizzie a large roll of bills,
booked up his team and left in the di-
rection he came. Before starting, how-
ever, he cautioned "Aunt" Lizzie to
see that the young lady did not want
for anything, saying that money would
be regularly furnished to meet all de-
it into her room. In the
bed the babe was quietly sleeping, but
Its mother had departed.
'Aunt" Lizzie, distressed almost out
of her mind, set out to find her, visit-
ing all the neighbors, but not a word
her wherabouts did she receive.
For days and weeks the disappearance
of Core was the talk of the country
: supposed that she bad
gone to the river and drowned herself
others held to different opinions. Up
to this time the boy baby had not
named, and "Aunt" Llxxle be-
lieving that she would have It to rear,
christened the child Walter, his sur-
■ his godmother, Sharp.
From the day of Walter's birth "Aunt"
Lizzie experienced but little trouble
with him. Be seldom cried and for
hours he wonld lie quietly In his little

could have given a child more atten-

hands of "Aunt" Lizsle.
One night In February, 1843, "Aui t"

beside her. She was thinking of Cora,

ing to Brady and Bigelow, "Give

The Oil Trust began to tighten
the money market, through the
City National Bank. In ordinary
times the market would have swag-
ged gradually, and investors would
have had time to recover.
It was therefore necessary to
give the market a linn tone, while
the undermining process was Cun-

ury Department fell readily into

Effects of the Qold Standard BUI.
The effect of this measure is to
produce contraction is too evident
to be denied by its friends and ad-
vocates. In the first place, it ab-
solutely suspends the coinage of
another legul-teuder Bilver d "
and confines silver coinage to that
of subsidiary coin, which is only
leghl tender to the limited amount
of $ tU, and thus further deprecia-
tes the mint value of all silver
bullion. It authorizes the Secre-
tary of the Treasury practically
to redeem even the silver dollars
if he deems it necessary so that
silver is virtually taken out of cir-
culation as primary money and is
degraded to mere token meney for
change, like the nickel and the
penny, and can henceforth havt-
but little effect on the prices of
commodities. Every thing is bas-
ed on gold and 'gold alone aB a
standard of value, and all other
forms of money are virtually re-
deemable in gold, and the prices
of all commodities are measured
in gold. Not only so, but all ob-
ligations, both public and private,
payable henceforth in gold. In
fact, when eventually the purpose
of this bill are attained, all the
Treasury, notes, United States
(greenbacks,) and silver certifi-
cates and silver dollars will go out
of circulation and there will be no
other full legal-tender money for
the payment of public and private
contracts except gold. Can the
purpose and tendency of this meas-
ure be anything else but to count-
eract the increasing influx in the
world's production of gold and to
cheek and contract its volume ?
Not only is this the purpose, but
it is evidently the further purpose
of the contractioniats to reduce
the volume of full legal-tender sil-
ver money and thus to contract
the general volume of full legal-
tender money. Such a course is
bound to reBult in an undue eon-
traction of the circulating medi-
um and enhance the price of mon-
ey on one side and decrease the
price of commodities, except such
as are protected by a trust, com-
bination, or monopoly on the oth-
er side. When population in-
creases and commerce should ex-
pand on one side, the volume of
primary money contracts on the
other, and the inevitable rosult
must be falling prices of wages
and all commodities not in a trust
