A Lexington Correspondent 
About Beards. 

The Hi.adk lias received a copy 
of The N. Initial View, published 
in Wusliington City. It contains 
an article written l y Ml, John Mc  
Murtry, of this city, on "The m in- 
ner of wearing the heard as an in- 
dication of* character." The nniin 
point in the argument is to demon- 
strate, that the wearing of the "mus- 
tache alone" is an unfavorable indi- 
cation of character. 

Mutdi has been said about the 
manner of wealing the hair ami the 
beard in all rges, but I think no 
moral importance attaches to it, 
other than that to which Lord Ches- 
terfield allude when he says of the j 
dress that it should be such as not ! 

v e.icli nthtf tie re," 
■ though! IIS well 

Thebtard is 
worn in so many shapes now that 
it can hardly be alleged of any one 
style that it makes a man conspic- 
uous. In my early boyhood the 
wearing of beard was so uncommon 
that a certain man ot this vicinity 
who wore a beard was looked up- 
in as a curiosity, and even he would 
oot have dared to wear a mustache, 
Because of the popular sentiment 
baainst it. About the time the tran- 

ion to the fashion of beard wear- 
iras taking place, I suggested 
to a gentleman afterward Presi- 
dent of Kentucky University, who 
waa suffering from some bronehhd 
trouble that he should wear beard 
He declined to do bo on the ground 
that it would make bim conspicu- 
ous. He afterwards told me that 
the style of wearing beard was he- 
coming so general as to remove his 
first objection, and afterward wore 
beard until his death. 

There has always been an im- 
mense dogiH.tism on the sulject. 
Tertullian, an early Church bistoril 
an, said that "a man who cut oil 
his beard lied to his own face and 
tried to impiove upou a work that 
his God had made perfect;" und quo- 
ted the Jewish ordinance agunst 
marrintr the comers of the beafd, 
while the term "h.nbarieii" WW 
applied in coniempt by deck ami 
Roman writers to the rude nations 
that wore beards. 

The Nazaritt!-, a Jewish sect, to 
whic h Sampson belonged, wore 
their hair aud beard long, and yet 
St. Paul says that "nature teaches 
that it is a shame tor a nun to uwsf 
long hair" George Washington 
wore his hair plaited down his i'uck, 
but would have scorned the idea of 
wearing any kind of beard, espe- 
cially a mustache; while Mr. Clt-ve. 
land shingles his hair and wears a 
"mustache alone " As a question 
of taste and morals, it is perfectly 
arbitrary; while as a question of 
health and comfort, men should 
wear their beards long iu the win- 
ter, and cut them short with sci- 
sors for summer. As a question of 
neatness, auy gentleman wearing a 
long mustache should carefully use 
iiis napkin at table. 

Reflections on Congressman Rankin's 

Representative Rankin, lately 
died in Washington of a protracte i 
illness which Ml known to his 
physicians and himself for u con- 
siderable time belbieliand as neces- 
sarily fatal. His language, in an- 
ticipation of his death, was so re- 
markably cool and deliberate, that 
those who htard him thought he 
waa joking, though he earnest ly 
declared that he was not. 

I do not know what his religions 
or philosopieal opinions may have 
been, but it is highly provable fiia 
a man iu his posiiion intellectually, 
must have had some decided SOU- 
viotious regarding that nio-a won- 
derful and interesting of all phe- 
nomena, death. It is htranee how 
little Ill's most inter-sling question 
is discussed in any secular journal 
ism. Jt may be said that as vicwcl 
from any secular standpoint it is 
bhroiuh d iu mystery, and it i-; but 
investigation and t ee interchange 
of thought have pciicirated and 
elucidated many things before 
thought inscrutable, aud always 
With beneficial results; and 1 can see

worthy of the Bfl l fl M rtWll OM of

delight to express th-ir spprcoialion  
Evident It there h something 

bidden and suppressed about thin, 
and from MHM cause the preM Ins 
been intimidated mid "muzzled.'' 
Such a state of nfFtira is not whole- 
some, nnd Rdhereat* to the theory 
ot immortality damage their nrgii- 
ments whenever they discourage 
free'diseussion of the mbjeef, 

If the idea be not true, no wi-e 
man will sav we are justified in 
deluding oursrlve-i nhout it, and if 
it be true, quasi nrgument against it 
v.'ill just ns much establish its froth 
as that directly lor it. This was 
the reasoning of Gamaliel, nnd nn 
astute teacher of mathematics would 
congratulate himself upon the op- 
portunity to instruct his class, if 
some bright boy should really be- 
lieve, and undertake to prove, that 
the three angles of a tri mgle were 
NOT equivalent to two right angles. 

If this be not true, and the in- 
vestigation can be conceived as 
demonstrating the philosophy of 
the French revolutionists that 
"dc th is an internal sleep," I must 
confess that I see nothing horrible 
in the idea. If a man does not now 
legret that he did not live a thou- 
sand ye.irs ago. I can not see why 
he should fesf that' lie night not lie 
living a thousand yeirs in the 
future from now; since there is no 
reason IU suppose that the annihihv 
lion of ihetuture would be SOT more 
nueomfiirtahle to bin than thai 
which be has already experienced, 
in the pmrt, 

11 to I his it he anowrered thai a 
future annihilation involves a aepsi 
ration from friends and a sundering 
of cherished ties that were not in; 
volved in the pael annihilation, it la 
rejoined that ju-t such a sundering 
of all these relations occurs even 

time a wi Ulla into a profound 
sleep, for then certainly there is no 
appreciation of difference between 
friend and foe; and yet sleep is a 
condition ot existence which men 
court, and prize j 1st iu pronortio i 
as iu its deepness und intensity it 
approaches death. 

Ii seems philosophical that in 
neither of those views of death is 

I here anything to warrant Its dread. 

Bui there is I third alleged Condi- 
tion of existence after death, and 
that is the one of everlasting m\- : 

rv. known as hell. Ol thOM who 
accept the theory of the iiuinnriai!: 
ty, the huge najmit} prof*** to 
believe, sunt arc /ei onably suppos- 
ed actually to believe, tint the 
future existence in a State of hap- 

pines-i oi in one of misery, is eon* 
iingenl upon oertaia things in lite 
over whieh sonic ul lege thai all men 
have control, v. hi!.' others allege 
that they have no control; or but 

partial control. Now either these 

things are true, or they are not true, 

and are propositions of more mot 
momentous import, by a thousand 
fold, thau th* dissuasion* of politics

Regarding the observance of a

recommend to states the enactment

them from such iuueenrato publica-

It is one of the great good fortunes 
of my life to have known Judye Bold, 
with an intimacy Lardly less than 
that of a brother. W o were room 
mates in our early careera of life, 
soon after ho ha i ret out upon the 
earepr at tho bar win.'h gained him 
such eminent and glo ious distinc- 
tion. He was t mil en ly open and 
confiding in his nattne, and such ques- 
tions of mond and lUig i o Ul philos- 
ophy ns were involved and practically 
demonstrated in the manner of his 
death, as in the death of no mau 
known to the Hunals of Kentucky, 
were to thoroughly understood by me 
as beiog part, and parcel of his life 
b Wed upon convictions of fight, that 
had be reseated the 1 lows SOUttjujatly 
iftdtOMa upon bits, if would hsvsT*s- 
tonished me, even more than it has 
astonished others that ho did not. 

He was a man of immens* think- 
ing capacity and of continued fore- 
thought, and ho great was his aspira- 
tion to live a life grand and glorious 
in the highest import of those words 
thai it is iMpoeeible that the treat- 
ment which caused his death could 
have been a contingency U^OUt which 
he had never thought and under which 

his long predetermined course bad 
not been plainly aud unwaveringly 
marked out. 

I regard the death of my friend

In Ha  . 

Ki . Thass(Mpt: — The objects set 
forth i; the resolution* passed by 
the Ch. liber of Commerce as re- 
gards t ,e City Charter, would seem 
to commend themselves to hII good 
and w-abiding citizens. The 
change- in the Charter do not in- 
crease the burden" of taxation one 
dollar ) ' r year. In fact, it may he 
shMv pMSMMd it will lo^rn the ex- 
penditures of the city. It does not 
prop | to interfere with the ambi- 
tion of any of the gentlemen now 
candid. Jes who are willing to aacri- 
tice the r own time Gnd energy for 
the go ! of the city. It has ' been 
hinted that perhaps' these *elf sacri- 
ficing individuals may (by an amend 
nient to the Charter) be asked to 
serve without any compensation, 
therein giving taem an opportunity 
to hhow to the citizens how magnan- 
imous hey are. 

Why the Council should kick so 
at beii ig released of the very disa- 
greeable duty of managing the po- 
lice force is a mystery to the averege 

By a Police Board having the 
power to appoint the police and re- 
move them for good and sufficient 
reasons only, (and just here we will 
sugggest that it would not be a bad 
move to give this same board super- 
vision over the employes of the Fire 
Department,) it is claimed, and with 
a good deal of justice, that our police 
would bt a very efficient body under 
a Folk* Board. 

Our Fire Department is an effi- 
cient body and have done good work, 
but we think the same good results 
would follow were they placed 
under the Police Board bs will re- 
Bult to the police force. 

Two Boards of Council are desir- 
ous for many reasons; it will effectu- 
-ally pi vent" hasty legislatiou which 
in mat y instances does not accom- 
plish me desired or intended good. 
It would, in a great degree, if at- 
tempted, prevent an undue exercise 
of influence of the Mayor, as he 
would uot be the presiding officer of 
either body. Now is the time our 
city needs all the wise legislation 
she can gel, as we are growing and 
progressing as she has not done for 
years. W e want the wisest and best 
citizens in the Council, men with 
broad views and economical in the 
expenditure of the revenues of the 
city. The revenue of the city is 
arge and if judiciously and economic- 
ally bundled it is susceptible of do- 
ing tht city a vast amount of good, 
and wi en so used and the citizens 
see tin gooil effects there will be a 
cheerful acquieseuce iu it, but if not 
soused tnere will be, aud justly ao, 
long aud loud complaints.

Lexington, Ky., Jan. 25, 1880 — 
Capt. Stone, Louisville, Ky.— Sir: 
You a ;   one of the vice presidents of 
the NotioMl Association of Mexican 
Vetere.-is, an organization that has 
done nuch good work for the sur- 
viving soldiers who fought in the 
war with Mexico. Through you I 
wish to make to it the following true 
stateiii-ut: Jas. Pi. Collins, member 
of Col John W. Tibbat'a regiment 
iu the Mexican war, ia now an in- 
mate of the Mougomery county, 
Omo, poor house. He is eld, sick 
and absolutely penniless. He ia a 
Kent! ckidu, and for him I earnestly 
appea 1 to that military order of which 
you a representative officer to 
lend i iu a helping hand iu having 
him a mitted to the Soldier'B Home, 
iu sigi . of which he is eking out a 
miserable existence. 

Your comrade, 
Ben F. Euan. 

A conspicuous instance of adver- 
tising on a grand scale is the price

I have been proprietor of two flour 
mills. I have devoted considerable 
attention to phvsiologv and hygi en 
and think I can apeak intelligently 
about flour. 

If the grain of wheat, merely 
crushed and eaten in the shape of 
what we now call unbolted dour, 
had not been originally the best form 
of it, it would have become so before 
this because the human system has be- 
come adapted to it in that form 
from long use. "Two women were 
grinding at the the mill," and making 
unbolted flour for themselves for 
thousands of years before Jerusalem 
cratic primaries, a"impr«veaf 

The "new proe our. but probably 
appearance of the of its food qnai;- 
did it at the expen ebest part of the 
ties. Much of the out into "ship 
Hour is now thrown a. It mikes 
stuff'' and fed to the cowgirls will get 
fat cows, but our pretty kine" if they 
«s lean aa "Pharaoh's d fashioned 
don't eut some of the ol mill in the 
mill stone flour. Every process ex- 
city has adopted the new which Mt- 
cepi the Central Mil la, ofietor. He 
T. J. Grubbs is the proprsloue pro- 
by the old orthodox m l-n,l 
the finest brands of 'new process" 
lor those who prefer it. Wheat con- 
tains 72 per cent of starch, 7 of glu- 
ten, 5 of sugar, 8 of gam and 12 of 
water. The "new process" retains 
bat little more tha a the starch. I 
is uot only the privilege of every 
lady, "but her moral duty, to be just 
as pretty as she can be, and the 
gluten for her hair and fingernails, 
and the sugar iu Central MiiiV flour 
will make her as sweet as pie, and 
the gum in that kind of flour will 
double discount Colgau's Tola. It's 
bad enough to have to "gum it" when 
yon 8re old and. lost, have your teeth, 
young ladies. Don't do it whiie 
\ou are young. 

Mr. Gribb's flour ia called the 
"Jersey" brand because of its rich- 
ess and fattening qualities.

The Chesapeake Gas Company, of 
Baltimore, has reduced the price of 
its coal gas to fifty cents per 1,000 
feet, which leads the New York 
Journal of QiMMirei into a retro-

being operated a considerable period,

This suggests the inference that, 
while fifty cents is u war rate iu 
Baltimore yet the Chesapeake Com- 
pany apparently selected that partic-

HAH UDAY, l*M Rt'ARY (1. 1888 


~*Oov. Knott's letter to the Li^i?- 
latnre on tho penitentiary question 
discloses a most, remarkable state of 
affairs in that institution. All t li • 
machinery, implements, Bnii even tin 
b?ils on which the convicts hleep 
belong to the contractors. Tho Statt- 
owus the balktioga, the boilers and 
e ngines and n ft w old hemp looms, 
an I nothing «*«e. The State doe  
no* own a poStid of meat or an MM 
of 'loilroa whic-hto feed the convicts, 
an.l thue is not ■ dollar's worth ot 
mi. t rial on winch to employ tb» 
co victs, and to "cap the climux" 
tb State has no m ouey with wtiicl, 
to  uy anything. It will cost SfSTli    
de to feed the convicts and pay ex- 
pe sen, or $187,304 for a year. Th. 
co stitntiou prohibits the Slate from 
borrowing another dollar; claims 
ag .inst the treasury have alrewi) 
be n Jacafffad six mouths; efery cem 
th^it is expected to be available foi 
six'y days must go to the schoo, 
fuud, and what is the State ;.oing t 
do with the convicts in the mean- 

There is manifestly nothing that 
can be done but to let them starve to 
death or for the Governor to tart 
every one of them loose on the com 
munity by wholesale pardons. 

The next best thing might be for 
the Legislature to enact a law pro- 
Tiding for the convicts to be turned 
oat on a "ticket-of-leave," as it it 
termed in England. By this form of 
furlough the English convicts are, on 
good behavior, turned out of prison, 
and required to report to certain of- 
ficials at stated times. They may 
be turned into any jail on proof of 
bad conduct, and tho "ticket-of-leave' 
is thereby revoked. 

Id this exceedingly perplexing sit 
nation in tho Kentacky penitentiary 
the Legislature might provide for a 
"ticket-of-loave" for all convicts in 
for crimes other than treason, mur 
der, arson and rape, and thus find re- 
lief in the only possible way that is 
visible. This is rendered more im- 
perative from the fact that when 
Mason & Go., return the leased con- 
victs there will be fully 1,100 within 
the walls of the penitentiary. On this 
point Gov. Knott says : "This, in 
my judgment, would be a popular 
calamity. It suggests possibilities- 
at which humanity revolts with in- 
stinctive horror. There Hre, all told, 
741 cells in the penitentiary for malt 
prUoners. Of these but 048 are 
avttilabln, and they are barely suffi- 
cie t for one convict e'.ch. The 
remaining 'JO are totally unfit for oc- 
cupincy exc-pt iu the mildest 
wenthtr. Therefore, unless f-ome 
pr. vi- ions thall be m id* for their uc- 
•OwmodiUioa, over 1,0)0 convicts 
in ;-c be crowded into (pun civ 
sen c.'ly buthVieut for G4H Jnotbei 
Wt id*, over 7H0 human beings must 
be uiuiur.-d by couples in cells culy 
ii l 8 iuc'u-i wide, li fi. 3 inches hijjh 
an. u' f-t 8 inches lon K , furnishing 
Utoer the mobt favorable cireuu.- 
Btancas air aullicieut fur a single per- 
son ouly. If you would raaliza the 
vrible results wtii-h must eni-ue 
,om such con lit ou of things, you 
hav i but to refer to the horrible his- 
to.y of s iuullor, misery, crime, dis- 
ease and death disclosed by the iu 
vebtigation of tho condiiioa of the 
penitentiary uiaile by your aMaV 
oebsors in the winter of 1870 SO." 

With such facta staring tbem in 
the face wo do not sen why legis- 
lators should hesitate a moment in 
adapting the "t.^ket-of-loave" plan. 
It would probably set louue 75 per 
of the oouvictb who are in for 
and give the State a 
thing spell uud an opportunity 
to make euituldo provision for the 
retehea who fall into the 
of the luw. 

no matter what w done, the

lean* syhletii, by which convict labir 
is bfou^iit into ruinous conipetitini. 

of our 

the nrcViit-pt to place prop* nnder 
the flJor. The legislator* will ravry 
soft cn»hion« and step-ladders here- 
after, the former lo make the fall 
easy and the latter to enable them to 
Climb out after the stilts nnder the 
floor give way. 

It looks as if the State officers in 
connection with Mason A Co, are 
determined to bully the Legislature 
into dismissing penitentiary W arden 
South. The Board dismissed Komi, 
who went to work and secured the 
sympathy of the Legislature; the 

the B^ard standing too high on their 
dignity to endeavor to have tin it- 
side of the case presented to the 
legislators. Now that Sooth has 
b'-en vindicated by the Legislature 
the convict lessees hasten to an- 
nounce their determination of throw- 
ing off on their contract, well know- 
in,; the situation in which they 
thereby place the State, and doubt- 
less relying on this as a means of 
compelling the Legislature to tnrn 
HocTit out. The Governor suddenly 
sees the perplexities of the situation 
and delivers a messsge to the Leji-- 
iatnro describing its horrors in 
,-rripuic language. He doubtles 
KMW all the facts jnst ns 
well u mouth ns?o as he does to-da*. 
and tho withdrawal of Mason & Co., 
.ion pled with his message, seems to 
• invey the plain hint that the Le^ 
inlafcBft cati do only one thing, an 
hat is dismiss South. 

The question is a tough one. If 
the Legislature does not want to 
lonble on its record, it can provide a 
"ticket-of-leave" law, which is about 
all that is left for it to 
lo. This would be an exper 
incut that would be watched 
•vith decided interest, but it is 
the only visible way out of the di- 
lemma. It is the penalty for incom- 
petent and botchwork legislation, 
and is notice to the people that the) 
will best serve their interests b\ 
eleotiug good and judicious men to 
.he Legislature hereafter. 

It was while Judge Mulligan was 
-peaking that the State House floor 
began to wobble. This is a great 
compliment to the Judge's powers of 
oratory, and we leave faith in his 
ability to shake the capital over to 
Lexington. In the language of 
Tandy Huohes, "the Judge is a hum 
mer." A 11 that Lexington can desire- 
is for him to keep pegging away at 
Capital removal. 

The Law and Order Club of wicked 
Cincinnati has gained a victory of 
the greatest importance to their 
cause. The Governor has removed 
the corrupt police commissioners 
who refused to allow the arrest of 
theatrical people who violated the 
Sunday laws by giving Sunday en- 
tertainments. Ttis is giving the 
devil another black eye. Lay on, 
Sam Jones ! 

0UB SENATE, f i*:**!!**." 

What this Bran?!; oi the 
Legislature is 

A Bill Looking to Increased 

Hon. M. C. Alfoiid has introduced 
in the State Senate a bill to amend 
the charter of Lexington. We are 
iuformed that it provides for a Board 
of Aldermen, a Police and Fire Com 
mis-ion, a id an extension of the time 
for paying the cupitutien tax, in ad 
Jition to some other items of minor 
importance. The bill was prepared 
tfter due com-ullation with uim s 
.veil -posted citizens of Lexington, 
and it will doubtless pass both 
Houses in time to select officers in 

to do. 

The Trankfoit Coirespoude it of 
theCo- n^tou Comuiomvealth say*: 
r-ti.i bridges Iu breaks is a trau6i 
ion easily nude, especially to ont 
*ho stood iu the lobby the other da* 
aii 1 1 the floor of tho House began i  
w .bblo. Col. Mullitfuu was speak 
ing at the time, aud, u» tho slinking 
continued, and the occupants of the 
lobbie-. lied iu d.sniay, the gallan 
Colonel moved that the balance ot 
he sessijo be held iu the new court- 
house in the beautiful lilii'-grabs 
city of Lexington. The niotiui 
■ i ill n't prevail, but the motion to ad 
journ till to-morrow did. Mean 
while, au architect is examining tt 
see how big the bill cau be uiude for 
repairs. Two years ago the east 
hid" of the Chamber, just over Tom 
11. niy'a deputy's olfice, gave w-j 
and wua propped up. This year tht 
went cud sinks, and the supposition 
is that the floor is placing both ends 
sgaiust the middle, us has been done 
by the Legislators for Jo! these vant 
years. If, however, tho tumbling 
and ciucking of the old shell con- 
tinues until the building lies a mats 
of ruins, much thanks would bo dim. 
The way would be open for a re 
moval to Lexington, and au escape 
from the Fraukfort m 
is too far above proof."

A nnmbei of circnnr-t incos have 
conspired of late to put the Legis- 
lature in a bad humor, find agitato 
that aged question, the "Capitol re- 
moval." It is not the Capital News- 
paper, or the Capit'd Brew, ry, of 
the Capital Hotel, or the Otfrftol 
Photograph Gallery, but the Capitol 
City, that they talk about removing. 
The proposition has Not ived more 
favor this winter than ever bt fore. 
becsuse, as friends of the removal 
state, the present accommodations 
for legislative work are wholly in- 
adequate, and will never be n-pUc d 
by better fines, a* long us ihe seat cf 
Government remains where it i-. 
The difficulty that lies in the waj 
of mo v in if the Capital i-. a fiiuincm'
