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- 
ly disappeared from "Aunt" Lizzie's 
e, leaTing her child. The boy grew 
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 
white cap. 

"Is this where "Aunt" Lizzie Sharp 
resides?" said the gentleman. 

Yes, sir; I am that lady; will you 
Ik In?" 

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 
the fgentleman into the house. The 
team being cared for, tea was soon 
ready and the two weary travelers sat

convenience I will call her Cora, a very 
pretty name to which she surely will 
object. " So from that time on the 
young lady went by the name of Cora 
In "Aunt" LlEzJe'i house. Cora soon 
became acquainted with several per- 


Lizzie became perfectly devoted to her, 
and Cora took great delight In asslst- 
ig about the house duties. 
About four months after the depart- 
ure of the gentleman from "Aunt" 
Lizzie's house Cora was taken sick and

Supper over and the dishes cleared 
away the trio conversed for two 
the gentleman never giving his 
young lady's name. "Aunt" Lizzie 
suspected that they were on a very Im- 
portant misson, still she did not under- 
take to draw them out, believing that 
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 
She was carried to an adjacent apart- 
en a nice berth, "Aunt" Liz- 
zie returning to the room In which the 
□ was sitting. Upon re-en- 
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 
le bottle. "Aunt" Liz- 
zie's heart was set on seeing him grow 
believing that 'here was 
a mystery in connection with bis birth 
that would ultimately be explained, 
and that, Walter would some 
a great man. No mother 
could have given a child more atten- 
tion than this waif received from the 
hands of "Aunt" Lizsle. 

One night In February, 1843, "Aui t" 
Lizzie was sitting by her comfortaole 
fire, knitting, the babe lying its crib 
beside her. She was thinking of Cora, 
and wondering where she could be, 
when suddenly there was a knock at

beheld a man about thirty years of 
age and in bis hand was a white piece 
of paper. Speaking gently, he said: 

'Is the home of "Aunt" Lizzie Sharp, 
and are yon that lady?" Becelving an 

Lizzie the piece of paper, and without 
another word took his departure. He- 
turning to the Are "Aunt" Lizzie 
opened the note and it read:

will reward you. "Cora- 

There was bat little sleep that night

which he bore. "But time wil

Let those who decry the power 
of banks for evil look to Wall 
street. Within the post month 
the Standard Oil Company, con- 
trolling the City National Bank, 
the United Trust Company and 
Farmers' Loan and Trust Compa- 
ny, and aided and abeted by other 
banking interests to the extent 
almost $2,000,000,000, has depi 
ciated property values to the c 
tent of $2,000,000 and has cans 
failures aggregating m mu 

It has brought the country to 
the verge of a disastrous panic and 
has caused a tremendous failing 
off in trade. 

In this gigantic and almost in- 
conoeivablo assault upon the coun- 
try's prosperity the Standard Oil 
Trust has been openly aided by 
the Republican Administration at 
Washington, which has placed it- 
self squarely behind the BtAIidard 
Oil Company and the stock mark- 

In doing this it has enabled the 
Oil Trust to bring disaster upon 
country and to wreak tinan- 
cial murder upon two men who 
had incurred its enmity, 

Anthony N. Brady had refused 
to Bell the New Amsterdam Gas 
Company to Rockefeller and thus 
enable the money Czar t n form a 
gas trust in thi« city. A. S. Big- 
elow, of Boston, had refused to 
sell the Boston and Montana Min- 
ing Company to Rockefeller, that 
the Oil Trust might control cop- 

With the allied force of $2,000,- 
000,000 behind him, Rockefeller 
began the work o f d e 1 i b- 
erately bringing on u panic, 
that he might feel the glory of re- 
venge and the satisfaction of say- 
ing to Brady and Bigelow, "Give 
ie your property at my price." 
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- 
tined. Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan 
visited Washington. The Treas- 
ury Department fell readily into 
the scheme. 

Secretary Gage offered to buy 
$25,000,000 of Government bonds, 
of the five per cents of 11)0-1 and 
the four per cents of 1907. 

This offer Berved the purpose. 
It restored public confidence and 
enabled the Standard Oil Compa- 
ny to continue its work. When 
the bonds were not readily offered 
-being in possession of the trust 
-money again soared skyward. 
When interest reached ISO per 
oent. and prices tumbled, and six 
ib failed and Brady and Bige- 
low were swallowed, Rockefeller 
and Morgan generously camo to 
the front and '-rescured the coun- 
try from a disastrous panic." No- 
ble philanthropists ! 

Here are set forth the tactics of 
the trusts which the Republican 
party believes in, and which tike 
Republican Administration aids 
and abets. 

To cap the whole climax of col- 
lusion, the Government now des- 
ignates Rockefeller's City Nation- 
al Bank as the institution to re- 
ceive and disburse Federal money. 

If the Government is going iuto 
the banking business it would be 
better either to establish its own 
banks or to make arrangements 
for interest.

speaking for the Republican party, 

"Corporations — for what we 
commonly call trusts are merely 
big corporations — render great 

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 
hausiug in value of the 
dollar; in one word, 
dear money and hard times.— E.

so many evidences of confused 
minds regarding the beginning of

On Friday, the l"2d ult., 
Campbellsville and Greeusbnrg 
train was wrecked near Calvary. 
The tram was en route for Leba- 
non when suddenly four of the 
freight cars jumped the track and 
turned over as they went down an 
incline. The passenger coach also 
left the track but not upset. The 
engine and tender remained on the 
track. The mail agent, Mr. Pen- 
ick, was slightly hurt. The ex- 
press car was loaded with chick- 
ens. Many were killed. The 
passengers were considerably shak- 
en up but 110 one seriously hurt. 
The mail did not reach Columbia 
that night, to the disappointment 
.of the commuuity. 

Si 3. Shackelford, clerk of the 
court of appeals, announces that 
be will not recognize the appoint- 
ees to the election board made by 
Mr. Taylor. It is the clerk's du- 
ty, under the election law, to ad- 
minister the oath of office to mem- 
bers of the board, but Mr. Shack- 
elford rightfully concludes that 
Mr. Taylor's appointments were 
not legally made. 

The Kentucky Legislature is 
now in session. It is giveu out 
that that the Repnblicau mem- 
bers will not call a caucus for the 
nomination of officers for the two 
houoes. Fusion with the Brown 
Democrats is impossible, and they 
art hoping that enough Democrats 
will bolt from the Democratic 
caucus to give them strength xm 
*he floor.

Mr. Morton K. Yonts, of Green-

night by the State Board of Elec-

Capt. W. T. Ellis as a member of 
that board. The board then 
sidered the course to be pursued 
by it as a Board of Contest, aud 
among other things decided, as a 
time-saviug measure, to apply the 
evidence in one case to all other 
contests, as the grounds are the 
same. The board also decided 
that if the Republican contestees 
wish to offer affimative evidence 
or prefer oounter charges of Dem- 
osratio fraud, the charges must be 
specified in writing not Jater than 
the 10th of this month. Mr.

would not require an army as large 
as that of Germany or Russia. Ovg
