No wonder the poets love the open 
country— it is a place in which they 
can stretch their wings and let fancy 
have her own sweet will. Madison 
Cawein used to find the inspiration for 
some of his lovliest songs of nature 
round about Jeffersontown. He knew 
every haunt of bird and flo\ 
green recess and daisied field— he was 
as much a citizen of the #oods 
birds and in the books which he has 
given the world there are man}' beau- 
tiful lyrics which he learned while 
lounging under he spreading boughs 
and garnering the lore of the wild 
things of forest, field and stream.

The ceaseless clicking of the type- 
writer you hear as you pass the Jeff- 
county jail is made by Jailer 
Pflanz who is hard at work on his 
great book. "Some Jail Matrons I

What Jailer Pflanz doesn't knoi 
about jail matrons — well, don't mer 
tion it Until now policy has compell- 
ed him to handle the subject wkh 
gloves, but in the pages of his forth- 
coming work he tackles it without 
them. The scrimmages, the hair 
yankings, the tearfests, the bossing 
bees, the matron racket has brought 
about would have sent many weaker 
the padded cell. 
Revolutions in South American re- 
publics are nothing in comparison and 
whenever one of the deputies down 
there eats too freely of spagetti, 
limburger, mince pie and other deli- 
cacies, and has nightmare he shrieks 
out that the nominating board has 
got bim. 

All these troubles have been caused 
by the attempt to keep two bloomer 
bosses under one roof and in the same 
office, a fond impossibility that may 
be realized when the fox terrier and 
the cat, the lion and the lamb repose 
together. 

Sometimes Jailer Pflanz goes out on 
top of a knob in ifew Albany and 
whispers what he thinks o: the busi-

occasion the strife within the walls of 
the building waxed so fierce that he 
withdrew to the bomb proof, while

The heavy rains have caused quite 
a freshet in Mill creek and many

IT is a distressing incident to the 
editor of The Jeffersonian to have 
to chronicle in its first issue the 
death of Harry Morrison, a boyhood

indeed for those who knew and loved 
him to have to bid him an eternal 
farewell, just when all of life seemed 
brightest.

Can it be that the trusts are now go-

SUBSCRIPTIONS to The Jeffersonian

past two weeks, not only from the vi-

Oklahoma being represented. ]

work of building up a big circulation

THE COMING SUBURB. 



the 



Jeffersontown, already past 
century mark, the oldest town in the 
has been called "Louisville's 
Coming Suburb;" that was several 
a. To-day it is the suburb 
of the Falls City, and with reason. 
Here are broad and fertile acres, in 
of the most elevated portions of 
the county, easily reached by a good 
turnpike, the Southern Railroad, and 
electric cars of the Beargrass 
Railway. 

The last mentioned line affords the 
pettiest suburban ride out of Louis- 
lie: it is the only one that does not 
188 through an unsightly portion of 
le citj-, but from the moment it 
leave? the down-town business section, 
rerses well-kept residence thor- 
oughfares, and from Douglass Boule- 
vard to Dr. Wells' drug store at the 
corner of the Public Square the route 
is through one of the most beautiful 
sections of country in the State, or 
elsewhere, for that matter. Wooded 
hill and grass-clad vale, a landscape 
as beautiful as a picture, the Fern 
Creek Hills and the Indiana Knobs, 
rich gardens, plenteous wheat-fields, 
and shaded pasture-lands, knee-deep 
purpling bluegrass, through which 
browse fatted beeves and yellow- 
skinned Jerseys,— it's a landscape fit 
for the song of poet and the artist' 

Here are sites of beauty for the 
country homes of the tired and blase 
urban dwellers, where rest and peace 
and quiet bring back the spring and 
elasticity of youth, where the reckless 
young man, who, with an utter disre- 
gard of facts, recently charged the 
landowners hereabouts with refusing 
$1,000 an acre propositions, may if he 
can borrow the necessary car-fare, 
recuperate under the blue canopy of 
heaven and let the gentle zephyrs 
clear away the cobwebs from his be- 
fuddled brain. 

And, having arrived in this quaint 
old town of simple and kindly folk, he 
will receive as glad welcome and as 
bounteous hospitality as was ever 
dered weary and footsore pilgrim. 

Here the water is of the clearest 
and the purest, the fruits of every 
riety the most luscious, garden pro- 
ducts the choicest; and every evidence 
of prosperity is apparent. Here is 
located a c« amery, established less 
than six months, that produces 8,000 
pounds of the very finest Elgin butter 
every month: a banking institution 
with a minimum capital; in operation 
but three years, showing a healthy de- 
posit running into six figures; a min- 
eral well, its water's analysis indica- 
ting it to be a specific for most of the 
ills to which human flesh is heir, 
from house-maid's knee to appendi- 
citis; stores, confectioneries, etc., suf. 
ficent to take generous care of all the 
needs of a populous surrounding coun- 
try; schools and churches of various 
denominations, and lastly, plenty of 



i to grow: from the town's ancient 
limits to its adjacent suburbs, Middle- 
town,' Fisherville and Rabbitsboro! 

me out, all ye pale and languid 
denizens of smoke-begrimed, dust- 
stained Louisville, come out and live 
where blue-birds sing and the wood- 
bine twineth; The Jeffersonian bids 
you welcome. 

THANK Y0U,BR0. SFR0WL.

To the Citizens of Jefferson County: 

Having been born, and lived ir, this 
county all my life, and flattering my- 
self with the belief that I have as 
many friends as any other man, I can 
but feel it my duty, as one who is ex- 
tremely desirous of aiding in my hum- 
vay the upbuilding of any enter- 
prise calculated to advance our inter- 
ests, to say to you that the establish- 
ment of a county paper in our midst 
will be of incalculable benefit to even 
the remotest section of our county. 
The. Jeffersonian, of which this is the 
first issue, is the first strictly local pa- 
•ve have ever had, and it is "up 
;" to give it our earnest support 
Messrs. Alcock and Barrickman are 
young men, amply qualified, intelli- 
gent, worthy and experienced, and, as 
I understand, propose to give us an 
up-to-date, clean county paper devo- 
tee to the advancement of county af- 
fairs. They expect to have a corres- 
pondent in every section of the coun- 
ty, which will not only be of interest 
1 in the county, but will be as,,A 

LETTER FROM HOME, to those of Our 

families and friends that are in other 
parts of the country. 

Knowing the good people of this 
county so well, I feel that I can as- 
these gentlemen of your hearty 
co-operation, and I want it distinctly 
understood that I write this altogeth- 
unsolicited, and simply for the pur- 
pose of, as I have said, lending my aid 
a the starting of this worthy enter- 
rise. • Very truly, 

E. R. Sprowl.

respondent of the bank. A name 
has not been selected, but it 
was stated that it probably will 
be called "The St. Helens Na-

to be named later. The need of

Too Much Oil On Roads. 

Residents of the St. Matthew's

drivers who are putting the oil on the

and that the county is being made to 
pay for much oil which is sprinked 
in the ditches and not on the pike

First magisterial district, it is said.

SUDDEN DEATH 



WAR VETERAN. 



The friends of Harry Howell Goose 
ere inexpressibly shocked to learn 

of hiR*3eath, suddenly, on Thursday, 

June ft 

-. Goose had been doing some 
painting at the home of Jas. Strauth- 
it Van Dyke's Mill, in Spencer 
county when he was taken ill with 
colic on Wednesday. He died Thurs- 
day nil-lit. 
Harry Goose was the youngest child, 
it one, of Col. and Mrs. A. R Goose, 
of Okolona. 

: was thirty-three years old, and 
was unnamed. He served for sever- 
al years in the United States army, 
being a member of "F" troop, Seventh 
Cavalry. He saw service in Cuba dur- 
ing the Spanish-American war, and 
was afterwards honorably discharged 
because of disability resulting from 
i attack of yellow fever. 
Besid.es his parents he is survived 
by four brothers and a sister. His is 
the first death in Col. Goose's family. 

The remains were buried at Jeffer- 
sontown Saturday morning last in the 
family lot in the Lutheran cemetery, 
the Rev. L K. May conducting the 
funeral services. 
Ham Goose's grandfather helped 
i build the church adjoining the cem- 
;ery in 1833. 



interested are requested to com- 
municate with the chairman, William 
J. Johnston, Harrod's Creek, Ky. 

Our community was greatly grieved 
by the death of Harry M. Morrison, 
hich occurred in New York, May 31, 
f rheumatic fever. He was born 
ear Goshen, October 2, 1868, being 
the oldest son of Dr. and Mrs. A. M. 
Morrison. He united with the Goshen 
Presbyterian church on Sept. 28, 1884. 
During the first eighteen years of his 
life spent in our midst he won the af- 
fection of every one by his cheerful- 
sympathy r.nd courtesy. As a

TOWTY 

Wtifrnq *t 
i he Church' 




Danville, 111. — Spinsters and bach- 
elor maids of this, "Uncle Joe" Can- 
non's home town, have joined hands 
in a common cause. 

They want the town bachelors taxed, 
Furthermore, they want the tax grad- 
uated according to age. The older 
the man, the bigger the tax, demand 
the unwedded women of Danville. 
And, what's more, this is 
dream; they have drafted their de- 
mands in black and white, and it is 
now before the common council of the 
town In the form of a proposed ordi- 

Ltterally, it is a case of pretty much 
the whole unmarried female popula- 
tion of the town waiting at the 
church! 

In Danville they have a delicate line 
drawn between spinsters and bachelor 
maids. A spinster, according to Dan- 
ville definition, is one who is a maiden 
t help it. A bachelor 



But be that as it may, all distinc- 
tions have been cast to the winds. 
Those that can't and those that won't 
alike demand that bachelors be taxed, 
and the longer the eligible one re- 
mains a bachelor the bigger his tax 
mounts up, year after year. 

There is no anonymity about the 
thing, either. Old maids and budding 
debutantes have signed their names 
in black and white to the petition. 
Stirs Up City Officers. 
Of course, the petition upset the 
city officers. A meeting was hurried- 
ly called by Mayor John H. Lewman, 
City Clerk John Torrance, Fire Chief 
G. W. Bridges and Councilmen Clar- 
ence T. Brittingham, John H. Har- 
rison. Joseph Mies, Samuel Strauss, 
Michael S. Plant, Dr. C. H. Evans, 
Clarence Baum and several other 
prominent citizens attended. Speaker 
Cannon was invited, but his Wash- 
ington duties kept him away. 

The matter was carefully gone oven 
The pros and cons were_ put forward." 

i and bachelors and one 
a"^ave their opinions. 
"Remember, gentlemen," couns 
the mayor, "it is a very serious mat- 
ter and a very delicate one. which de- 
mands our most patient attention, 
dread to think what might happen 
should we take a wrong stand in the 
premises." 



[ Committee Chosen. 

Finally 'the whole proposition fii 
left to a committee, of which all were 
to be bachelors and a majority law- 
yew. Thia committee of experts was 
carefully chosen from among the most 
~oular bachelors of the town, in or- 
.u- that everybody might be sure of 
a fair show. It consisted of 
Stenographer Harry Britting- 
tm, Circuit Clerk John W. Barger 
.cd Attorneys Thomas A. Graham, M. 

Keegan, William H. Dwyer and 
ay F. Barnett. After careful con- 
. sideration they decided to issue a 
-statement to the expectant unmarried 
aembers or the gentler sex. 

They took the bull by the horns. In 
a word, they demanded that before 
action be taken they have the priv- 
ilege of meeting the petitioners Here 
is the bachelors' official reply to the 
proposition for an ordinance provid- 
ing for a graduated bachelor tax for 
the unwedded adult male population 
ol Danville: 

"We, the single men of Danville, 
would like to make the acquaintance 
.of the unmarried women of this com- 
munity who are so much interested in 
us. We would like the privilege of 
petitioning the city council, as a mat- 
ter of self-defense while awaiting fur- 
ther moves of the enemy, to enact an 
ordinance taxing these unmarried 
women of Danville $50 for each time 
they turn one of us down, not because 
we '.eel aggrieved or wish to get mar- 
ried, but as a matter of protection. 



Retaliatory Proposition. 

"The above appears to be a fair 
poposition. If the unmarried women 
of this city who are behind this move- 
ment against our peace of mind are 
in earnest and have a grain of human 
sympathy, they will meet our propo- 
sitions fairly and squarely. It is up 
to them to do so, and we don't think 
they will evade the self-imposed re- 
sponsibility." 

This didn't pour oil upon the 
troubled waters of Danville's spinster- 
hood at all. 

"There isn't a peg on which to hang 
a single romance,' sneered one elderly 
maiden, "let alone hundreds of ro- 
mances. Let's reply to them, girls!" 

"Let's!" chorused spinsters and 
bachelor maids, all in one breath. 

And after a week this volley of hot 
shot was turned loose upon the ene- 
my's camp: 

"We have read the reply of the Dan- 
ville bachelors to our appeal to the 
city council, in which they make a 
counter proposition to tax us $50 for 
every time we turn them down. We 
are willing to agree to this provided 
they will agree that the following 
proposition is a correct position for us 
to take: 

"Objects" That Are Barred. 
" 'We do not propose to turn down 
any of them because they are 
face, but when one of them 
around to see us, fastened to the end 
of a big cigar, having not the slightest 
semblance to a man. and who has the 
appearance of not being able to sup- 
port himself, much less a wife — then, 
out he goes.' 

One would think by the comments 
in relation to this matter that there is 
such a thing as a matrimonial tree, 
and all that any girl wanting a hus- 
band must do it to shake the tree and 
down comes a helpmeet. 

Laying aside tne thought of such, a 
ridiculous proposition, we desire 
present the facts. We wish to say 
frankly that we feel rebellious against 
fate that forces us into the com- 

a living. Not a day Dasses that 
do not feel that nameless longing— 
a yearning for protection, for shelter, 
for a good husband's tender care and 
solicitude. 

"How we hate the noise, bustle and 
worry of the commercial life! How 
we hate the competition, the clamor, 
the drudgery, incumbent upon us who 
must go through life alone, battling 
every day against a cold and heart- 
less world in an effort to earn our 
daily bread! 

"Every finer instinct in us cries out 
against the coarse, rude life of the 
business world. Women, and only 
women, possess warm hearts which 
have depth* and heights of feeling 
that a man can never hope to under- 
stand and which many of our gender 
are too sensitive to admit." 

Thus did the spinster souls of Dan- 
ville's maidenhood lay themselves 
bare to*ll the world. 

Results have already followed. 
Bachelors who golfed with other 
bachelors last year are golfing 
In mixed foursomes this season. 
Bachelors who went to dinners and 
dances and teas during the winter 
months with no further idea that 
their fair friends thought of anything 
more serious than the latest mode in 
dresses or the daintiest confection In 
headgear have had their eyes opened. 
Cupid Will Be Kept Busy. 

Within a short time many sweet se- 
crets may be confessed. It is freely 
predicted that M the social upheaval 
crystalizes Into an ordinance provid- 
ing for a bachelor tax, the crop of au- 
tumn and winter brides will beat all 
records. 

Things have gone so far now that 
City Clerk John Torrance, dean of 
Danville bachelordom. has been threat- 



ened with social and 
cism unless he takes l 

by h 

jorities, much to the joy of his aronies 
of the clubs. Now he has cone out 
with what is both a suggestiontand 



"The old maids have taken us by 
surprise,'" said he. "We werebf the 
opinion they were all more thaaj satis- 
fled with their condition. In fi 
eral of the boys have complaint that 
they have been adopted as 'bqthers' 
by our fairest spinsters, in 
closer alliance. We have boi 
them for years with candy, 
theater tickets, dances, mofcllght 
rides and proposals of 
not one of us has succeeded in £tting 
them interested in mctrimoi " 
ters. Now that they have conf« 
desire to obtain homes an/ " 



"My 
we who have 
home in them^.^ , 
rooms of these gft -rsl *Wio - aV 
peared human icicles, notwithstand- 
ing our most ardent campaigns. I 
would suggest that the bachelo girls 
also form a club, and that their -ooms 
contain a reception or billing aid coo- 
ing room where their frien* ran 
spend a pleasant hour occas^nally, 
becoming acquainted with tho$ who 
desire to be brides. 

"Of course, I don't want tra to 
think we are over-anxious to ge mar- 
ried, but on behalf of the bacheors of 
Danville I will say that there an some 
of us who will surrender gra efully 
and gladly if we have the right oppor- 
tunity. This would be a bette- plan 
than to try to bulldoze us by laving 
an ordinance passed taxing us. That 
would only make us more stulDorn."

graph. He says: "In 1872, when 
boy, staying at Hulland ward, Derb; 
shire, I called on an old woman, Eliz: 
beth Durose, then 97, widow of a farm- 
er, who told me that her grandmothi 
when a girl, had known a man — a d 
tant relative — who had witnessed the 
execution of Charles t The old w( 
an then took out of a coruer c 
board an old prayer-book, bound 
black leather, which was, I fancy, of 
the time of Queen Anne, for I remem- 
ber it had a frontispiece picturing 
parson in gown and bands, and wear- 
ing a long wig, saying prayers in a 
'three-decker.' Opening it at the form 
of service for January 30, she showed 
me a piece of coarse linen, of the color 
of a dead leaf, which she said was 
portion of a handkerchief which had 
been dipped in the king's blood, and 
was given to her grandmother by the 
above eye-witness. When it first pass- 
ed into her possession it was nearly 
entire, but her children had played 
with it, and this was all she had 
aged to preserve." — Derby (England) 
Telegraph. 



Wolf in Italian Town. 

It is not often that European eyes 
witness the spectacle of a wolf trot- 
ting leisurely through the streets In 
broad daylight, and with little appar- 
ent concern. Such an incident hap 1 
pened recently in the Italian town of 
Annezzano. The wolf went sniffling 
first in the direction of one house 
then of another as he went along. 
Passing by the 'hospital, an attendant 
of sporting instincts saw the game, 
and, rushing for a gun, gave chase. 
Before long he got a chance for a shot, 
which hit the wolf, and, following this 
up with another, the beast was slain. 
Its presence in the town is accounted 
for by the theory that the beast had 
been hunting over night away from 
his haunts, and after eating to satiety 
and sleeping through the night, was 
making his way back to his lair. 



YEARNING FOR OLD FRIEnDS. 



"If I were in the publishing' busi- 
ness," said the gray-headed ma», "I'd 
get out a school reader ant put 
into it some of the old " poem« and 
stories that were favorites forty 
years ago. It would do the young- 
sters good to get acquainted, with 
that ancient and honorable liter- 
ature, while as for their parents; who 
sometimes look through a schootbook 
seeking in vain for a familiar echo of 
their own childhood days, why, they 
would get a whiff of the inspiration 
of youth that would lop at least 15 
years off their age. I'd put in that 
3 about "Make Me a Child Again 
Just for To-night," and that other one 
where the little girl wants to knbw if 
'God Un't on the ocean just the same 
as on the land?' Then there are The 
Gambler's Wife,' 'Lewellyn and. His 
Dog," 'We Are Seven,' and "Lazy Ned.' 
I'd print all these old gems and sand- 
wich them in between the speeches 
of Patrick Henry and Daniel Webster, 
and that old classic about the cohtent- 
boy who had no kick against life 
as he found it, even though he hadn't 
a turnip to eat. Maybe my pook, 
i I had finished compiling! It,- 
wouldn't find favor with a modern 
school board, but I'll warrant you It 
would strike a sympathetic chord In 
the breast of many a reader, old and

Properly Sized Up. 

"William," said an Oil City woman 
to her husband, "I gave away an old 
pair of your trousers to-day." "You 
did? What color were they?" "Blue, 
I think." "Great Scott! Woman, do 
you know what you've done?" "Why 
—no — William, I don't. Was there any 
money in them?" "Was there any 
money in them? There happened to 
be $50 in them which I intended hand- 
ing you for a present." "William," 
said the woman, quietly, "I believe you 
are lying." Which he was, of course.

Precautions Against Electric Fires. 

If your dwelling is electrically light- 
ed never place wood, clothes or other 
inflammable material against 
wires, meters or switches; never 
an electric wire as a clothesline, and 
see to it that your dwelling is kept 
free from rats, as these pests often 
gnaw the insulation from the wires. 
The amount of loss from "electric 
fires" in the United States in one year, 
according to the Saturday Evening 
Post, is $15,000,000. 



Natural for Them* 

"Those young fellows act like 
bunch of fools." "They consider that 
they have a right to act that way.' 
"I'd like to know what right?" "They 
belong to the smart set."— Houston

IRISH HOPEFULNESS. 



The Irishman sees everything 
through rose colored glasses, says a 
writer in the Guidon. He is support- 
ed, too, by a simple, sturdy faith, a 
spirit of resignation and unworldli- 
ness worthy of the saints of old. 

The dread blight had fallen on the 
fields in most of the district where we 
were visiting in Ireland, and the po- 
tato vines hung limp and brown. No 
word of complaint was spoken, and 
when the likelihood of famine was 
mentioned the answer came: 

"Danger, ma'am? Tes, there is, in- 
deed, but God is good. He'll find a 
way." 

So, too, about the hay. The sum- 
mer had been terribly wet, and for 
days the -new mown hay. had lain on 
the ground. It was an anxious time. 

"What will you do," I said to Mike, 
"if this weather keeps np? Your nay 
will surely be ruined." 

"Oh. nlease God it won't keep us." 



"What a glorious night, Mikey!" I 
said to the boy, as he and I and the 
donkey drove home under the August

They showed ui 
town, a gentleman' 
stretch of what not long sirice had 
evidently been thickly wooded land, 
stood stump after stump of giant 
trees. Four or five years ago. when 
the winter was exceptionally long and 
cold, the peasants suffered from scar- 
city of peat. They begged this land- 
ed proprietor to sell them wood, of- 
fering not only to pay his price, but to 
fell the trees and carry them off. He 
refused. 

Again and again they begged, for 
the suffering grew intense, but he 
would not let his land be marred. One 
night there came a wind so frightful 
that it seemed for a time as if the 
"big wind" were blowing again. In 
the morning the highway along this 
proprietor's domain was Impassable. 
Huge trees, blown to the ground, lay 
across the road for a distance of two 
miles, and the forest beauty was a 
thing of the past. The town authori- 
ties ordered the obstruction cleared 
away, and the peasants got for noth- 
ing more than they had been refused 

" Twas the hand of God was in 
that, ma'am," I was told, "for, with all 
the wind, not a poor man's cot was 
harmed, nor another tree on the coun- 
tryside, only those. God always looks 
after His poor."
