 This is  an old Institution  altogether relia   ble and responsible  and its surgeons  eminently skillful and qualified to  perform wonderful cures of diseases  and deformities of long standing   and which are incurable in the  hands of the general physician or  surgeon  They need no special rec   ommendation from us  their work  shows for itself   as witness the hap   py results of their treatment upon  many persons in this vicinity dur   ing the past few years      Our Boys    The North Middletown corres   pondent of the Paris True Kentuck   ian pays the following just compli   ment to our b oys  who exhibited in  that place June 29tli      On Saturday last our town was  enlivened by Bendel s Plantation  Minstrels  assisted by Prof  E  S   Fogg s Cornet Band  This troupe  is composed of young gentlemen  from Mt  Sterling and vicinity  and  are all performers of no ordinary  ability  They gave a concert here  on Saturday night  and long before  the curtain arose Masonic Hall was  filled almost to suffocation with a  select apd appreciative audience   The entertainment opened with an   Overture   which was followed by  songs from Messrs  Tom Calk  Jr    Wm  Daily  II  C  Wilson and Max   E  Bendel  The laughable sketch    Brown s Brown Mule   by Bendel    Co   was greeted with rounds of  applause and side splitting laughter   and the  Fantasia or Dream of the  Ball room   by Prof  Fogg s Cornet  Band  was one of the most delicious  selections of music to which it lias  ever been our pleasure to listen    Lightning Changes   by Wm   Daily  which consisted of songs and  dances in character  were simply  splendid  and showed that Daily  was an artist of superior merit    The Coal Heavers  Strike   by  Messrs  Jo  L  Hanly  M  E  Bendel  and Wm  Daily  was irresistibly  funny  jand the part of  Dr  Cureall   was performed by Mr  Hanly  who  has but few superiors in his imper   sonations of an old man  Max   Bendel s negro sketch   Old Black  Joe   was one of the gems of the  evening  and was replete with  pathos and reminiscences of the by   gone days of slavery   Cuba  or  Poor Jake s Revenge   a laughable  farce by Messrs  Hanly  Coleman   Doddridge  Bendel and Daily  took  the house by storm and concluded  the evening s entertainment  This  deserving troupe will probably visit  Paris ere long  and we take pleasure  in recommending them as gentle   men of high social position and rare  burnt cork attainments  Their con   undrums  cuts and gags are fresh  and keen  and are void of the vul   garisms so common in negro min   strelsy      Forgery    Hull s Bank  of Independence   Kansas  issued a card November  1  1877  offering a reward of  300   and describing a man who had com   mitted a forgery on that bank  the  time and amount

further informa   tion from the bank officials  The  description of the forger suited Ran   kin tolerably well  but a telegram  received last evening acquits him of  the charge  He lias been in this

advantage  Be sure to go  and take your friends    When the editor had read it  ho  said      Oli  I see  an advertisement    No  not an advertisement  W  prefer to have it go in the local col  umn

which a  large outlay of money can procure   His paper has a larger circulation  than any other published in the  county  and is to be furnished at  ouly  2  It is certain that no one  can spend that amount to a better  advantage  Be  sure to take the  Chronicle and subscribe for your  friends       The manager hemmed and hesi  tated  and then said  solemnly  that  he doubted whether it would be  judicious to read such a notice  and  suggested if it was printed copies  of it might be distributed at the  door of the vestry on the evening of  the entertainment     Yes   said the editor   but it  would attract more attention in the  middle of a sermon  It will inter   est a large number of your congre   gation and help a good cause  and   besides  so much money is spent  upon the Chronicle that I don t see  how the owner can afford to print  hand bills to advertise it without  increasing the subscription price   In sueli a matter as this vve ought  to he willing to help each other

spirits of generous men   In marriage  a man becomes slack  and selfish  and undergoes a fatty  degeneration of his moral being  It  is not only when Lydgate misallies  himself with Rosamond Vincy

women there is less of this dan   ger   Marriage is of so much use to  a woman  opens out to her so much  of life an A usefulness that  whether  she marry ill or well  she can hard   ly miss some benefit  It is true   however  that some of the merriest  and most genuine of women are old  maids  and that old  maids and  wives who are unhappily married   have often more of the true mother   ly

   K v           Man  made in the image of God  himself  and possessed as he is of a  rationality superior in so great a  measure to the remainder of the liv   ing world  undoubtedly was created  for the accomplishment of a great  and noble end  Since God in his in   finite wisdom and greatness has  chosen to instill within man those  principles which tend to make him  the greatest of all earthly beings   doubtless  nay  I may say with cer   tainty  that from even this one fact  alone  it is evident that upon man  devolves the highest duty of prais   ing the name and obeying the laws  of the Divine Creator  Man pos   sesses a conscience  a knowledge of  right and wrong  and will therefore  be held responsible for the deeds  done on earth  And how many of  us realize the full amount of respon   sibility resting upon us  Do we  constantly keep in mind the fact  that on the last great day we will all  be judged at the bar of Christ  And  on that day how many will be  doomed to hear the fatal words    Depart  thou art not tit to enter  the kingdom of God   Now that  characteristic of man which we call  life is something that we can not  understand  It is as much an enig   ma to the learned man as it is to  most ignorant  We know that we  live  that we possess animation   while the earth  for instance  is in   animate  lifeless  yet the greatest  philosopher that ever lived could  not fully explain the difference be   tween ourselves and so much clay   lie could only say life existed in the  one instance  while in the other it  did not  Yet undoubtedly he could  not advance one step farther in ex   plaining the nature of that differ   ence  life  Thus we see that strictly   speaking  we are entirely ignorant  of that property without which we  are but as tlie dust of the earth    Yet 1 am deverging from my sub   ject and must hasten to return    Life as I have already stated was  given to man by God  and it re   mains with him to determine as to  how he shall use it  By pursuing  one course he can make it a bless   ing for both time and eternity  By  pursuing another he can make a  curse  If lie is true to bis own con   science and his God  earth s richest  blessings and eternity s joys will be  his reward  and when after living a  dutiful life upon earth he is called  upon to die  it is with eagerness that  he approaches the Valley of Death   Yes  Death will come for him as  well as for all  but his blighting  touch can only sting the body  while  the immortal soul  freed of its earthly  fetters  quickly wings its flight to  that upper home  and there robed  in its garments of white  the lining  type of innocence and purity  can it  add another to the many voices  sending forth songs ot praise to  God s immortal name  There hilled  rest by the softly murmuring  waters of the River of Life  can the  soul find sweet  sweet peace  But  what will be his reward who stills  the voice of conscience and lets the  baser passions rule the inner man   Disgrace and ruin set their seals up   on bis brow for both time and eter   nity  And when Death comes to  claim his own  the spirit with a  piercing shriek of wild dispair sinks  down  down  into the lowest depths  of hell  To happiness and joy a  last farewell  Oh   misery and  death  when do thy horrors cease     Is there no rest  What saith that  voice which from the darkpess  greets his ear   Ah   fatal answer   hope is gone   As you have sown so  must you reap  You have chosen  hell  now taste of its sweet rewards    Yes  each of us is possessed of an  mmortal soul for which  by our  own actions  we can secure ever   isting peace or never ending woe   My friends  what pathway have we  chosen   Shall we behold at the  end of our journey through life the  bright and sparkling fountains of  the upper world or the dark and  turbid waters of the seething   Styx    Young men  beware   Life s sweetest roses are now bloom   ing for you  Soon  perchance they  will wither and leave in their stead  the pricking thorns  Although the  cup of sorrow may never yet have  touched your lips  yet the time may  come when you will drain it to the  dregs  Judge not of the future by  the past  forr en as the foe unlooked  for steals upon us in the night  so  doth misfortune  hidden by the vail  of the future  burst upon our eight   Of those whose forms once straight  and sinewy  now are bent by Time s  remorseless hand  whose heads are  covered witli the hoary frost of age   would I ask the question   Whither  are you tending  Do  you look for   ward to the coming end with noth   ing of regret   Has your pathway  through life been lighted by the  lamps of Goodnessand Honor  Has  the light of Goodness and Honor  been but a good figure reflected on  your pathway through life  Let us  hope that life has been a blessing  not only to yourselves but also   to  those around you  and that a higher  than earthly hand will bestow upon  you the reward ot loyal faithfulness    And now of those whose friendship  I have so eagerly sought to win  to  whom I feel that I could safely turn  and find a welcoming smile and a  place within their midst  though  looked upon with   corn ful eyes by  a haughty and unpitying world  to  whom I feel bound by ties sostron  at least with myself  that the shocks  of coining years can not suffice to  break them in twain  Yes  of you  schoolmates  would I especially ask   Whither are you Tending  Yon  have launched your frail barks on  life s tempestuous sea  and are now  sailing swiftly o er its troubled wa   ters  lire long the winds will waft  you to another shore  Beware lest  you should strike the fatal rocks   which give no warning of their  dreaded presence till you find your   self a lost and ruined being  But  during life  tis yours to play a part   Oh    play  it well  Let noit the vain  allurements of a Worldly life delude  you by their all too fascinating pow      ers  Make truth and honor kings  within your breast  and let them  rule your lives   Beevertrue unto  yourselves and it will follow  as  naturally a  lhe night does the day   thou can st not then Ire false to any  man   Fill while you may the  store house of your minds  the  knowledge garnered there will  prove a never yielding stay in time  to come  Mark out a pathway for  yourselves  and when you once have  chosen  so it be a good one  swerve  not from it for the void of friend or  foe  Heed not the taunting laugh   ter of the worldly  those who judge  the man by outward looks alone   however so hideous be the heart  within  And should you for a mo   ment think that no one cares what  progress you may make  if those  about you care not whether you  may rise or fall  remember that at  home  the dearest spot on earth   where childhood s happy days were  spent  when care free you were  wont to roam about the fields  con   tent to stay within that little world  which you might call your own   yes  think that there are those  whose hearts are here without you   whom you can cause to look upon  you with delight  or blush to bear  the mention of your name  And  especially if a mother stands amidst  that throng  think not that all your  friends are gone  For often times   when midnight s solemn hour has  come and other eyes are closed in  sleep  that mother lies upon a sleep   less couch thinking of and anxious  for the welfare of her child so far  away   Tis in your power to bless  or curse her life  She sympathizes  with you in your troubles or rejoices  with you when your heart is glad   Other friends may scorn you  broth   ers  sisters  even fathers cast all love  for you from out their hearts  send  you even as a thief from all that  makes life dear  but never till her  pulses cease to beat  will your moth   er cease to be a friend  never will  she send you out alone to battle  with the world  No  mother love  is such as none but mothers ever  know  Then I entreat you  by all  the sacred pieinory of her name  to  make yourselves as shining lights  unto the world  1 am glad to feel  that I can count myself as one  among your band  Let us make  our fight a never ending contest  with the evils of our lives  Surely  we will conquer in the end  Proud   ly will our banners wave where  once the flag of ruin showed its  colors  Then shall we no longer  hesitate to shout aloud unto the  world that   We are quickly tending thither    To that land of peace and love    Where the flowers never wither    Far beyond the skies above      A Woman With two Tongues    Mrs  Sallie J  H  Beatty

Politically n Frand IU  Modeller      Editor a     The Democracy of the Sentinel  man has always been a question  of dispute  and while various  charges now stand against him as  to his fidelity to his party he  seeks refuge in the thought of  implicating the Democrat  under  the plea of not supporting the  Hon  Thomas Turner  The best  evidence of  a man s incapacity to  discharge the duties of the pro  fession he assumes is the fact that  he tries to attend to the work and  dictate the policy of others  The  Sentinel  a paper of eleven years  standing  by its incompetency  and non fulfillment of a mission  that never satisfied an intelligent  public  owing to the weakness of  the upper story of its editor  and his known proclivities and  desires to sell to all Republican  caucusses  allowed a paper to  spring up in its own domain and  carry the palm of success to vic   tory  which shows the relative  merits of the Democrat over the  Sentinel so plainly that bank   ruptcy hovers over the domain of  the latter while prosperity and  wealth spreads its proud sail over  the future of the former    We had intended to treat the  editorial in the last Sentinel re   flecting upon the policy of the  Democrat with silent contempt   but numerous friends have de   manded that we should notice the  same with boldness  and we there   fore make a short review in justi   fication of the position we have  always occupied    Sometime since we answered  an article in the Sentinel that was  contemptible in its nature  givings  as we believed  a clear and con   cise view of the position we occu   pied  and further repeated the  same views in our last issue as to  our independence in journalism  and not being wedded to the in    terests of any one man  and we  think it now superfluous to reit   erate the same  We have no  apologies to make to the Sentinel  man nor to the Hon  Thomas  Turner and his friends  We claim  to be independent and privileged  as to a selection and have as  much right to our choice as any  freeman in the district  Had wg  ever put ourselves in a position to  sell out then our anxiety to re  claim our fidelity to Democracy  would no doubt have engendered  a cowardice that has always char   acterized the Sentinel man  who  ever looks more for spoils than  he does for principle    It is not all gold that glitters   When two years ago we gave our  time and talent to secure the elec   tion of Turner  this same Sentinel  man scouted the idea of success     cause we do not say as much for  Turner as he and his friends de   sire  We are under no obliga   tions to Turner or the Sentinel  man  we have made our paper a  success on principle  and not from  policy  Our reasons for non   indorsement are best known to  ourselves    His introduction of fifty bills in  Congress and not securing the  passage of one of them is no evi   dence to us that he is superior in  representative qualities  but  proves  to the contrary  what we  have repeatedly heard to be a  fact  if he remained in Congress  a thousand years he would kill  every measure he proposed  like  he has always done at home   by  talking it to death  We have  made no efforts  public or private   to secure his defeat  We have  no interest in any man  We stand  non committal  The fight for the  nomination is a family fight  Whoever secures the endorse   ment of the party we will stand  by  The insinuations of the Sen   tinel man relative to our position  are false  and he knew it was a  libel when he uttered it  We  have never signified a desire for  the nomination  but when accost   ed about it fefused positively to  allow our name to be used in the  canvass  We wash our hands  again of this dirty inuendo  and  leave an intelligent public to de

district  Now he  turns   as all traitors do   and rep   resents him  not as a matter of  principle  but from policy  as the  personification of all that is good  and great  This policy may   have some effect where Garrett is  not known  but at home it falls  like the tear of Dido on the ruth   less wave of the Mediterranean    produced not from love  but  a desire to be made fa   mous by
