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 
Afflicted. Messed 

Dear Friends: 

, 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 


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 


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 
three years. 

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 

At the Charity Organization, 
Mrs. Wm. Bruce, President; 
several beds completely equipped 
have recently been donated by 
Crab Orchard ladies, and a sew- 
ing-machine by Mrs. Zinn, of 
this city. 

Thankm Column* 

Mrs. J. Warren, of Paris, aged 
eighty-two, has donated a quilt 
to the Infirmary made by her- 
self. She feels like "helping in 
this good work, with all the en- 
thusiasm of youth. Thank you, 
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. 

The Lexington Plumbing Co. 
has been exceedingly kinfl in 
rendering favors to the Infirmary. 

Thanks are due Mr. J. R. 
Williamson for his liberality in 
work at the Infirmary. 

Mrs. Annie Ryland, ever ready 
to help the poor and sick, has 
shown a bounteous hand in 
generous gifts to the Infirmary. 

The Infirmary has been so 
much favored by Drs. Caldwell, 
Carrick and others, that the 
managers cannot keep silent, for 
out of the abundance of the 
heart, the mouth must speak, 
the praise to which they are en-

Record, one dollar from F. M. 
Vance, with the following no- 
tice: One dollar for sick of In- 
firmary without deduction and 
no paper. 

N. B. Didlake, Treasurer. 
The Lexington Record begs 
that Mr. Vance will accept the

pecking inside for a chance 
worm hidden in the silk tuft. 
He found a good many, too, and 
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. 

All glory be to Him, who hath 
put it into the hearts of his 
people to let this light shine be- 
fore men. 

Yours in Christian love, 
Aunt Jean.

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 
received and conveyed promptly 
to the Home. The institution 
is out of debt, and the treasury 
is benig judiciously uomanaged. 
The children passed through the 
slimmer without sickness. 
Daily they pray blessings upon 
Mr. Stoll, for the loan of their 
healthful, beautiful home. 

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 
and near. 

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. 

The Home Of The Friendless 
has already sent in eleven sub- 
scribers to The' Record. 

The Infirmary is sending out 
nurses to private houses.

The Charity Organization 
earnestly solicits donations from 
the farmers, of potatoes and 
-winter provisions. 

The Woman's Guild have 
only thirty-two dollars of the 
one hundred required to buy 
coal enough to supply the city 
poor this winter. 

Mrs. Wmston, Mrs. Saffarrans 
and Mrs. Voorhies have kindly 
consented to read to the sick at 
the Infirmary. 

Religious service is held every 
Sunday at the Infirmary, at half- 
past four. Friends are invited to 

The Industrial School will 
open the first Saturday in Oc- 
tober. ' 


The Boys' Club for newsboys 
and bootblacks will open about 
the middle of October, under 
efficient management. 

There are ten Protestant 
churches in this city for whites, 
and six for blacks. There are 
four Mission Chapels and two 
Roman Catholic churches. 

St. Joseph's Hospital, under 
the care of the Catholic Sister- 
hood has about two hundred 
patients. The new brick ad- 
dition for colored Patients is a 
much-needed improvement. 

The W. C. T. U., will hold 
their annual State Convention at 
Richmond early in October. 
Six delegates will be sent from 
this city.

This useful society at No. 42

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 
woman, Mrs. Insco of infamous 
celebrity, and Mrs. Pugh whose 
sentence was for complicity in 
theft, are upstairs. To them the 
ladies went first, and were most 
welcoms visitors.

all the members present and a 
few new ones. Since fli'e death 
of little Effie Hogan the Guild 
has not adopted another chiid,

needy for the coming winter. 
Although this society is com-

kind donations, and ate always 
grateful for any little help they

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."

Mrs. Sara B. Cronly, whose 
philanthropy is well-known to 
our citizens, left us some weeks 
ago for a visit to Alaska. She 
sends her bill of fare from Queen 
Charlotts Sound, on board the 
City of Topeka, the steamer that 
landed her and a crowd of other 
passengers at Sitka. On the 
margin of the yellow leaflet is 
written in pencil, "Love for all." 
This with her literally means 
"all;" for all know her by her 
good works. The readers of 
The Record will be glad to 
know she has not gone where 
there is nothing to eat.

The Young Mvna* Chrtatliitt 
AmmoelatUtn of 
intrton, '*'v. 

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 
this undertaking. 

Yours very respectfully,

The Record will introduce in

among the poor of the city, and 
asks that all worthy cases be re- 
ported to the editor. The win- 
ter will be a hard one, the cold- 
est since 1883, and there will 
probably be much suffering to 
be alleviated.

True* CJioerf nines*. 

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- 
broken wife
