Thk Lexington Record will
be issued the first of every month.
The subscription price is One
Dollar a year. Advertising space
is Three Dollars per inch for one
year, if paid in advance; or four
dollars when paid by the quar-
ter. Please address all questions
and communications to Lexing-
ton Record, Lock Box 375,
Mrs. Eugenia Dunlap Potts,
Mrs. J. W. McConnell,
The kind words which have
greeted the first number of The
Record encourage us to believe
that we may give entire satis-
faction to our readers as soon as
the Christian and philanthropic
people of the community get in-
to the merits of our plan.
Please remember that we design
to make the paper a record of all
the good that is being done in
the community. Let us have
your co-operation. Let the man-
agers of every chairtable society
in the city give us a report of
their work every month. A
brief, condensed notice which
will call public attention to their
aims, their progress, and their
needs. We will thus give yo
representation in The Recer
In return tor this opportunity
ask that you will secure for us
least ten subscribers in each
your respective societies. Send
in your communications, between
the fifteenth and twentieth dates
every month, to the address giv-
en elswhere in this issue.
Whether you furnish us subscri-
bers or not, we will publish your
reports. We, however, solicit
your aid in this direction, as we
do not yet feel able to stand
While The Record will give
the workings of Lexington's
good people, we shall likewise
collect such bits of information
in the religious and benevolent
world outside as may come to us
from month to month. Charity
must not be circumscribed, and
the knowledge of the good that
you do acts like contagion upon
your neighbor who may be only
waiting for a start.
Our first number contains a
sketch of the chairtable and re-
ligious organizations of the city,
with their officers.
S/jec /.-j/ Sotioe,
The proceeds of the Lexing-
ton Record shall be applied ex-
clusively to the charity patients
at the Protestant Infirmary.
This institution is in its infant
state and requires all the funds
in the treasury to keep it in run-
ning order. Whoever lends a
helping hand to the Record will,
in just such measure as he gives,
be caring for the sick, who have
no other refuge when they need
medical attention. These pa-
tients, be it remembered, are ta-
ken in from all sects and all
walks in life.
Whnt Mr. Bomuohmmp
Mr. J. B. Beauchainp, one of
Lexington's most intelligent, up-
right citizens, and a man given
to good deeds, congratulates The
Record in unmeasured terms.
"This paper," he says, supplies
a long-felt want in our city.
Already it has given me valu-
able information, I could not
readily get in any other way. I
am ready to aid in all that I can

A Stro/7 Among The
, You do not know half
the good that is being done in
our beautiful city until you
visit the noble charities in our
midst. The sight of suffering
and infirmity should make us
who are well bow in perpetual
thankfnlness for the blessings of
health and strength. Yet to
know that we can alleviate so
much of pain brings its own
sweet reward. Do you ever go
to the Infirmary? Do you know
what a lovely place it is? Such
a stately old mansion, rambling
off into airy bright rooms and
surrounded by foliage and flow-
ers, such as only Kentucky can
phow. Could you see the rooms
*/ 't'.o^vrv! » ul^y &jj-feit tliv»te
dear good women, Mrl. Si-
monds and Mrs. France, per-
haps you might like to be sick
just to lie there. And if you saw
the sweet-faced nurses in their
spotless caps an arirons,you might
long to have their cool hands
about you, and their wise heads
planning for your comfort.
The Woman's Wards has one
bright cherub on the wall, prec-
ious little Polly Monroe's baby-
face in its setting of wild roses.
Beneath those innocent angei
eyes is the little bed where
other dear children are to lie
when stricken down. How the
children who are well and hap-
py love to work for this cot in
memory of their companion,
who was so suddenly snatched
away. The pupils of Sayre
Institute gave generously to its en-
dowment fund and the little Guild
toiled til! the required sun for
the year was raised. Only a
few days ago Mrs. A. J. Totten's
son, Stanhope made a pretty
little table for this cot, and up-
on it, his brothers, Alfred, Law-
rence and Robert, placed cups,
saucers and plates, beautifully
painted by their aunt, Miss An-
na Totten, who does such ex-
quisite work with her brush.
God bless the dear little ones,
who are thus early learning to
give the cup of cold water.
Near this now empty cot sits
Mother Conley, nursing a lame
foot. Six months ago she en-
tered the Infirmary. It was said
that nothing but surgery would
relieve her. This she has stead-
ily fought against, so she has
sat and watched and waited al-
ways telling you, "It is getting
better." Whatever the end she
has had all the comforts of life
that the nurses could give. One
by one she has seen her com-
panions in the ward go out well.
One by one she has seen new
ones come in sick. Still she sits,
neither reading, nor talking,
only persistently saying of the
afflicted foot, "It is better."
Mis. Bettie was trying to sew,
yet her anguished features bore
evidence to mortal suffering for
which there is no earthly cure.
In a cheerful room upstairs, lies
Jennie, only seventeen, with her
arm all bent from rheumatism.
Pretty features, with large grey-
blue eys and short brown curling
hair. She is a working-girl, and
her right arm perhaps crippled
for life! Four weeks it has been
thus motionless and it is ddath to
move it! Such a pretty young
thing, and so homesick for the
mother over in another county,
who can't afford either to take
her, or to come to her.
"It is so sweet of the ladies to
read to me," she said. I can't
use my eyes to read." Dear
young friends, go to see Jennie
and help her to be patient.
The old man downstairs, who
is an incurable paralytic, and the
younger man suffering from
malaria fever, loose some interest
when we pause at the bedside of
Father Morgan, who is going fast
with that most terrible malady,
cancer jf the face. Such tortur-jA
a^"He Endures maker, him yra\^T
devoutly for the end. "Yet I
have been blessed, he gasps;
"there is no better place on the
earth than this. I can't talk —
I can't read — but oh! ladies, if
you will only talk, it will be
something for me to listen."
The cheerful nurse is alwavs at
hand, and the sufferer tries to
lean on the Hand, which is lead-
ing him. Not far away is the
THE CHURCH HOME.
Here Miss Patsy sits quilting her
patch- work and here she has sat
these many years. The church
supplies what her own industry
cannot compass, and fuel is furn-
ished all the ' inmates. Also a
room rent-free. Miss Majryrie,
alas, lies pallid and helpless, a
prey to a fatal malady. Her eyes
gleam with onrinous brightness,
and her short luxuriant hair
makes a dark framework for the
wasted features: Her sister, a
comely, cheerful companion, is
there to nurse her. Miss Susie
is younger than many of the in-
mates, and her words about this
Home are all pleasant words.
The rooms are, some .of them
furnished quite handsomelv,
and the occupants are all busy as
far as strength will permit.
A longer walk, dear friends,
brings us to the
HOME OF THE FRIENDLESS.
The front is plain and unpre-
The rear is a flower garden,
which Matron Mary keeps a
thing of beauty. Vines cover
the porches and the gorgeous
tracery of the whole brick wall
is studded with yellow oranges.
Within, we find ten or twelve
old ladies located, and several
young girls for whom good
homes will be selected.
Aunt Patsy is ninety-one years
old, yet her eyes and teeth re-
main good. She has been at the
home ten years. She will tell you
of the pioneer days of Lexington,
of the old block house, and of
many ancient deeds unknown to
you and me. She was twice
married and both husbands met
with sudden death. A twin-
sister also died suddenly. Aunt
Patsy is a cripple, but she sits
and cuts carpet rags, cheerful
and animated, asking only for
enough rags to keep her busy.
She is a Northern Methodist,
and her church people recently
celebrated her birthday hand-
Mother Steele is very old and
blind, yet she threads he needle
readily by touch, and sews car
pet rags all morning in her
corner. She has been there
fourteen years. Husband and
children were taken from her,
yet she is cherful and patient
She is a member of the Main
St. Christian church
Aunt Jose finds the burden of
life hard to bear, yetshe is faitli
ful to her chosen work, which
is that of cook. She, too, is alone
in the world. The First Baptist
church is her place of member-
Aunt Susan is seventy-eight.
She is patient and lovely, and
sews for the inmates of the
Home. She has been there only
Mother G. is seventy-two and
she too, has her cross to bear.
She lost husband and child" in
one week, and was left alone.
She believes blind Milton, who
H said, "They also serve who
^ponlv stand and wait." ^ —m^k
But down in the basement you
will find a merry, happy old
woman, Aunt Amy. She was
married three times, and her hus-
bands were all named John.
How odd! She surely has only-
pleasant memories, apart from
death's covetous hand, for she
is sunshine itself. She was
husking green corn for dinner,
at my last visit, and on her knee
perched a very knowing chicken,
a young rooster with his first
spurs, named Dick. Dick talked
all the while in an extremely
high tenor key, and he could

Mrs. Warren, for your kindly
sympathy with the sick. The
Lord loveth a cheerful giver;
The Hercules Ice Co. has
manifested substantial interest
in the Infirmary by donating ice,
which is duly appreciated by
managers and inmates.
The managers of the In-
firmary return thanks to Mil-
ward & Frost, for hauling a car-
load of coal free of charge.

Mrs. Annie Ryland, ever ready

he evidently knew just as much
about it as she did. When she
had finished one, he turned
eagerly to the basket for another.
How pleasant, friends, to turn
away from sickness and pain to
this refuge for the aged. What
would become of them without
such a shelter? Hundreds have
come and gone, some to good
homes elsewhere, others to their
last long home.

five of whom are bound to the
managers. Little Mary is very
grateful for the care bestowed
upon " her. Her case was a pe-
culiarly appealing one, as re-
ported by the daily papers.
"Just let me touch you," she said,
as she stroked the gown of her
benefactress the other day, thus
timidly expressing the gratitude
that swelled her orphaned heart.
k Now that the winter is com-
ing on, send old clothing and
provisions. Anything left at
Berryman's or Kinnear, will be

to the Home. The institution
is out of debt, and the treasury
is benig judiciously uomanaged.

Tho Sunday LaiPi
A number of citizens have
been using strong persuasive
power to bring about litigation
that will secure rest and holiness
on Sunday. Two many there is
no difference in days, so far as
work and pleasure are concerned.
The Charity Organization.
The charter for this institution
authorizes the summary dispo-
sition of beggars, tramps, and
uncared-for children wherever
found. In its workings it proves
to be the great artery whence
flows patronage to various
branches. Children may be le-
gally bound to the Home, if it
is proved that they are not be-
ing brought up in comfort and
in morality. They may be
sent to the hospitals if sick, and (
to good homes if able to work.
While in the Home they receive
instruction. There is no class
of criminal, or wanderer for
whom a suitable refuge may not
be found by this charity. Mrs.
Wm. Bruce is President, and
her efforts to swell the funds,
have been most indefatigable and
praiseworthy. There are ten
children at the Home at present,
Subscriptions to The Record
are coming in from all sides, far
The Main Street Christian
church will give the collections
on the fourth Sunday in October
to the Infirmary. Will not the
other churches do as well?.
The friends of the Charity
Organization are requested to
meet every Wednesday after-
noon at the Home on Sixth and
Jefferson, to sew for the children.
The Charity Organization took
in nearly $500 at their booth,
during the Fair. Of this they
had a net profit of $132.

A Hand of I*i txis. Men nnd
Women Visit the Jail.
' On Thursday afternoon, as is
the custom in this city, a few
zealous woman and men assem-
bled at the jail to hold religious
service for the benefit of the un-
fortunates confined there. Un-
fortunate, however guilty, to be
shut in from freedom and useful-
ness by their own act. "Uncle
Billy" produced his big bunch
of keys and soon the ponderous
doors swung heavily back among
the faces pressed in curiosity
against the grating. Stone
flooring, stone walls, iron doors,
everywhere bolts and bars.
Within the high enclosure the
inmates of the cells gathered,
filing out from the dark and
musty chambers of the ground
About forty were soon in the
stone court,, all of them black ex-
cept nine. Chief among the
white men stood Bole Roberts,
a man whose naturally honest
features now bear the shadow of
anxiety. Upon the decision of
one man rests his next four years
on this earth. The dictum of a
single human being. He reali-
zes that whisky brought him
where he is, as it has brought
many, if not all, of his compan-
ions. The negroes all sat
around the pump platform or
aganst the high wall. The
white men stood, hats off, re-
spectfully watching and listening.
There was no defiance anywhere,
no sullenness, and very little dis-
play of indifference. To the
short address, the prayer, the
reading and the singing all
listened. One man wept bit-
terly and freely. Many voices
joined in the chorus, M | Am So
Glad That Jesus,Loves Me, even
At the close two of the ladies
went around taking the names
of new inmates, and presenting
prettily bound pocket testa :
ments to those not heretofore
Perhaps some good is done at
these services from week to
week. Perhaps they are soon
forgotton. At all events they
afford relation, if nothing bet-
ter to those lives spent in such
torturing monotony. The two

celebrity, and Mrs. Pugh whose
sentence was for complicity in
theft, are upstairs. To them the
ladies went first, and were most
The glearners reorganized after
the summer vacation with nearly
all the members present and a
few new ones. Since fli'e death
of little Effie Hogan the Guild
has not adopted another chiid,
but, work for the Polly Monroe
cot at the Infirmary, which they
support entirely. The after
hours aer spent in making warm
garments to help supply the
needy for the coming winter.
Although this society is com-
posed of the younger girls, they
show great interest in doing
what they can. The gleaners de-
sire to thank friends for their
kind donations, and ate always
grateful for any little help they
may receive, for it is the drops
that fill the bucket.
Fanny S. Todd,
The Methodist Conference at
Lexington resolved on the whis-
ky question, "That we use all
honorable means to secure total
absteniance for the individual and
total prohibition for the State.
That the traffic in and use as a
beverage is a sin and that we
can not consistently as christians
license a wrong and tnat we are
unutterably opposed to any sys-
tem of license, high or low.
That we view with alarm the
fact that nine-tenths of the liquor
business in the country is in the
hands of foreign syndicates and
individuals of foreign birth, who
have no interest in our moral
and religious institution."
The Baltimore and Ohio Rail-
road Company has sent to each
employee a circular note, of
which the following is in part a
copy: "This company will not
under any circumstances employ
men who are in the habit of be-
coming intoxicated. All em-
ployees known to frequent drink-
iug-places must be warned to
discontinue the practice or quit
the company's service. Em-
ployees will be discharged if in-
toxicated either on or off duty.
No person discharged for intoxi-
cation will be reimployed."
The Millersburg W. C. T. U-

tables, 50 cans milk, 20 baskets

The Young Mvna* Chrtatliitt
The question of municipal im-
provement seems to be exciting
considerable interest in the Lex-
ington papers at present. And
perhaps it would be well at this
time to call the attention of our
citizens to the need of moral de-
velopment as well as material
advancement. No community
can afford to neglect this, for all
history teachers that heal tin-
prosperity and advancement de-
pend upon the moral condition
of the people.
No dqubt the greatest danger
to be apprehended from immor-
tality and dissipation is through
our young men. This being the
case every thing possible should
be done to counteract the evil
influences which will be thrown
around them. Out side of the
church, the Y. M. C. A. stands
pre-eminent in this work; and if
the good people of Lexington
would encourage this work by
sending their sons, brothers and
friends to take part in the meet-
ings and participate in the
amusements at the Y. M.C. A.
rooms, they would be surprised at
the change which would be
wrought in the morals of the
young men of our city
Although the moral feature is
the greatest and best part of the
Y.M.C.A. work,yet there are many
innocent amusements which the
young men will find at the rooms
of the Association. They are
provided with a piano and organ;
their rooms consisting of a re-
ception-room, lecture-room, read-
ing-room and bath-room, are all
made pleasant and attractive by
their Secretary. The reading-
room is supplied with the lead-
ing newspapers and magazines
of the country. The social-room
.is provided with numerous in-
teresting games, such as check-
ers, chess, crockinole, chivaldry,
etc. We feel confident that any
one visiting these rooms will
leave feeling that their time has
been profitable and well spent.
We earnestly hope that the
people of our prosperous and
thriving little city will see to it,
that this Institution be made a
success and the most attractive
resort within her limits for her
young men. C. C. C.
the parties handling my trotter
having made another engage-
ment, wonld have been answered
immediately. In that note you
were pleased to say that you had
heard that I had a very fine trot-
ting horse, for which I had re-
fused a large sum. With all due
respect, I wish to assufe you,
that there is a very great differ-
ence between having a horse for
which you ask a high price, and
having the money in hand.
My experience has taught me,
that you never know what you
will get for a horse, until'he has
been delivered and the cash paid.
Should I be so fortunate as to
get the large price which some of
my friends think I may get? it
will give me great pleasure to
further assist in building up such
a worthy institution. In the
meantime the enclosed small
check will show you that I de-
sire to at least take some
part in caring for the sick and
suffering of this community.
Wishing the greatest success in

Along with humility we should
cultivate cheerfulness. Humility
has no connection with pensive
melancholy or timorous deject-
ion. While the truly humble
guard against the distraction of
all violent passions and inordi-
nste cares, they cherish a cheef-
ful disposition of mind. There
cannot, indeed, be genuine cheer-
fulness without the approbation
of our own heart. While, how-r
ever, we pay a sacred regard to
conscience, it must be enlight-
ened and directed by reason and
revelation, and happy are the in-
dividuals who have arrived at
that stage of development. The
state of mind which attends such
a moral and intellectual con-
dition is equally remote from
sour dissatisfaction, disponding
melancholy and frivolous Hilarity.
It smooths our path and sweet-
ens our cup, rendering duty easy
and affliction light. .

How to XInke n Good Wife
See your wife ,as seldom as
possible. If she is warm-hearted
and cheerful in temper, or if, after
a day's or a week's absence, she
meets y6u with a smiling face,
and in an affectionate manner,
be sure to look coldly upon her,
and answer her with monosylla-
bles. If she forces back her
tears; and is resolved to look
cheerful, sit down and gape in
her presence, till she is fully
convinced of your indifference.
Never think you have anything
to do to make her happy, but
that her happiness is to flow
from gratifying your caprices;
aud when she has done all a
woman can do, be sure you do
not appear gratified. Never take
an interest in any of her pursuits;
and if she asks your advice,
make her feel that she is trouble-
some and impertinent. If she at-
temptes to rally you good-hu-
moredly on any of your pecu-
liarities, never join in the laugh,
but frown her into silence. If
she has faults (which, without
doubt, she will have, and perhaps
may be ignorant of), never at-
tempt with kindness to correct
them, but continually . obtrude
upon her ears: "What a good
wife Mr. •Smith has!" "How
happy Mr. Smith is with his
wife:" "Any man would be
happy with such -a wife!', In
company, never seem. to know
you have a wife; treat all her re-
marks with indifference, and be
very affable and complaisant to
every other lady. If you follow
these directions, you may be
certain of an obedient aud heart-
