The Post Office Fight. 
Much interest is now being taken by 
the applicants for the Lancaster post- 
t'ffi.-e. The two former applicants, 
Messrs. W. K. Shugars and E. W. Har- 
ris, now have opposition in Mr. \V. T. 
West Shugars claims to have the un- 
qualified promises of "the powers that 
be" and was so confident of success 
that he has not re-entered any kind of 
business since resign ne his place with 
Mr. J, E. Stormes some time since. It 
is saiJ that Congressman Davison is 
inclined to leave the matter wholly 
with Gov. Bradley, as this is the gov- 
ernor's old home. Many seem to think 
that Mr. West has the best chancn.and 
some are willing to bet on Harris. Thk

New City 

The new City Council was sworn in 
Monday and organized Monday night 
Owing to the illness of a member,noth- 
ing was done toward making the sev- 
eral appointments. There are several 
applicants for marshal, while candid- 
ates for attorney are thicker than fid- 
dlers in hades. There is no opposi- 
tion to clerk Wherritt, and there 
should be none, for he is worthy, com- 
petent, and deserves the place. The 
Council will meet in a few days and 
elect effieers, appoint their commit- 
tees, and then buckle down for a fair, 
square, economical administration. 



IS. Iter Keep Him. 
We understand there is a probabili- 
ty, or possibility, of the local Baptist 
church discontinuing their engage- 
ment of Rev. T. H. Campbell We 
sincerely hope that such is not the 
case. Mr Campbell is a man who is a 
benefit to any community and one who 
v...l-^rove a benefit to all society. The 
people, irrespective of denominations, 
want him, and we hope that some 
steps will be token to retain him. He 
is a man who certainly "practices what 
he preaches," anr7. is a true christian 
in every sense of the word. 



Good One on Millard. 
While in Danville the other day, 
Millard West the handsome and pop- 
ular clerk at Logan & Robinson's, 
stepped into Robertson & Farns' es- 
tablishment to whisper a few good 
words into the ears of a pretty young 
lady acquaintance who was making 
some purchases. A "dummy" in the 
form of an iron negro boy sits on the 
counter and Millard, growing more 
serious, remarked to the young lady, 
"Come, let's get where that devilish 
negro boy will not laugh at us. Won* 
der why they keep such an impudent 
little black wretch in here?"

A "Swear oft"' that Stuck. 
Exactly twenty years ago on Mon- 
day, December (3, George T. Farris 
now state senator-elect, then a young 
man, with a bottle of whisky and a 
six-shooter as his companions, at- 
tended the famous temperance revival 
held in the Richmond courthouse by 
the noted lecturer, Wenzell, says the 
Richmond Climax. Among the four 
hundred people who went forward and 
signed the pledge wasthissame George 
Farris, armed and equipped as above 
mentioned. And to this hour and 
minute he has never violated the oath 
he took, and never parts with the 
card which he signed on that Decem- 
ber night in 1877. Not only has he 
successfully battled the temptation to 
drink strong intoxicants, whisky, 
wine, etc., but such harmless (?) bev- 
erages as beer and c'der have never 
since touched his lips. 

The Pike Question. 
The committee sent to Frankfort 
appeared before the Sinking Fund 
Commissioners on last Friday and of- 
fered them 314.00J for their interest in 
the Lexington road lying in Garrard 
county, which was refused. The fol- 
lowing roads have been bought at the 
committee's estimate : Hiattsville and 
Kirksville, S.V)'); Buckeye, ?.*,3''7; Spil- 
man road, $75;); Foor Kidge, |Nt] Mt. 
Hebron. ;ree; Bnena Vista, 35D0. The 
other companies iu the county refused 
the offers made, as estimate 1 by the 
nmittee, and have replaced their 
gates. Only one road, so far, the 
Richmond, has applied for guards.and 
the County Judge furnished two for 
each gate. It is hard to tell now, just 
what will be done. The court relies 
upon its committee's estimate as being 
perfectly reasonable as to prices for 
the roads, and the stockholders say 
nay. So there's the situation in a nut- 
hell. The Rkcord hopes that every- 
thing will be amicably settled, and 
that, too, sooq. 

Later — Since the above was put in 
type, a committee from the Lexington 
road came in this (Thursday) afternoon 
and told the court that they were per- 
fectly willing to meet the county half 
way and do what would be the right 
thing by all concerned. We are in- 

med by one who ought to 
that the indications are very 
that the deal for this pike will be 
closed tomorrow. As indi vid ual stock- 
holders own the controlling interest, 
their say will knock the high mo-ui 
sinking fund commissioners at Frank- 
fort east west and crooked. So, you 
see, later developments throw 
brighter light on the subject 



Goose Supper. 
The local Masonic lodge enjoyed a 
fine goose supper a few nights since. 
The fowls were prepared under tbe 
kind supervision of Mrs. J. Joseph, 
whose reputation for getting up excel- 
lend and dainty dishes caused the 
brethren to await impatiently for the 
supper hour to arrive. A few invited 
ests, and all masons in town wheth- 
er members of the lodge or not 
were on hand, and the way those 
geese disappeared was a sight to be- 
hold. Coffee, bread, celery, pickles; 
etc., were plentiful and all went home 
feeling that it was good to have been 
there. There were no windy speeches 
which generally blow away the pleas- 
ure of such nr nasi paw, »"d everything 
was carried oat to that quiet, unassum- 
ing way for which' Masons have been

FUed Her Vp. 
Our big cylender press got out of

to a type foundry to learn cost of send- 
ing a machinist h  re. "Five dollars 
per day for man and three dollars per

reply scratched across the bottom of 
our letter. Not having enough cash 
to hire him for even one day, wo un- 
dertook the job ourselves. Like the 
man who took the dock apart, we 
soon had enough pieces to not only 
make two presses, but to set up an en- 
tire new office. New springs, new 
bearings, tympan .b anket, etc., weve

One of the sad lest deaths in Lancas- 
ter for some time, was that of Miss 
Lucile Weisiger, which occurred Sun- 
day night at 10 o'clock. She had suff- 
ered for several months with throat 
trouble and was confined to her bed 
for some weeks. She would have been 
sixteen years old next April, and was 
an unusually bright and intelligent 
girl. She was an active member of 
the I 'res by terian church and took a 
leading part in the Christian Endeav- 
or and Sunday School. Her beautiful 
life should be an example for other . 
Appropriate funeral services were cor - i 
ducted at the family resi lence Tues- 
day morning by Rev's. J. »C. Randolph 
an d H enry Faalconfac. The remains 
were £enderly 'Iafcf to rest beside those 
of her father, the late Col. Joe Weisi- 
ger, in the Danville Cemetery. An ap- 
propriate tribute will be prepared by 
the Christian Endeavor society an.l 
appear in next issue of The Record. 

In Memoiuam. 
In the morning of her life the sun 
went down and yet, not until her work 
was done. The flower was too beauti- , 
ful and fragrant for earth's gardens, 
and the teuler fingers of Frovidence 
plucked it and transplanted it above ' 
with "the rose of Sharon and the lilly 1 
of the valleys." The loss to church, 
home, mother and friends is irrepara- 
ble, and yet Gods holy will is best. 
What a blessing her life has been to 
us all, short, yet it has by its gentle- 
ness been indelibly stamped on our 
minds and hearts and the influence of 
such a lovely life will never die and 
never cease to draw heave i ward. She 
"being dead yet speaketh." 
"She is not dead, the child of our affection. 

But gone Into that school 
Where she no longer needs our poor protec- 
tion. 
But Christ 




pollu- 



In that great cloister's stillms: 
sion. 

By guardian angels led. 
.Sale from temptation, safe from

She lives whom we call dead." 
She spent her last hours in prayer 
and telling of Jesus "m ghty to save." 
And those present will neveV forget it. 
or she seemed so close to her Savior 
that the death chamber was robbed of 
its gloom, and brightened by a smile 
from the little saint's fate. It was 
her desire to get well to tik.? care of 
her mother, but was always submis- 
sive to God's will. And just before 
she left us, she poured out her spirit 
in prayer to the "Lord Jesus to come 
quickly"-and at 10 o'clock her prayer 
was answered for the (Jreat Shepherd 
bore the gentle spirit of the lamb in 
His own bosom to the fol 1 above. 
• She hath escape I all danger n«.w, 

Her pain and fighting all are lied ; 
The crown o' joy is on her brow. 
Eternal glories o'er her shed."

A BOARDING HOUSE STORY. 

The Lindlady Thinks She Is Rrsklajr an« 
Trlea to lie Krudlte, 

Most women reach a time of life ano 
a stngo of hard wear at which they take 
refuge in being merely brainy, or being 
considered so. 

I had not thought that the 1 
house landlady would be attacked 
this fatal complaint, which can gen- 
erally be warded oiT by cooking and the 
elementary arithmetic of the grocer's 
book, but I had not outlived the stay of 
more than four hired girls when the 
landlady fell a victim to the disease. 

The first sign of it was a sudden and 
persistent fish diet and a pocket dic- 
tionary in her apron pocket. She served 
the soup out with the manner of the 
president of Sorosis and her wrappei 
began to assume a dog-eared and lit- 
erary air. 

But circumstances were against her. 

One day the table was graced by a red 
rose not af UM calico and artificial type 
that decorated the reception room, 
smelling of patchouli and flaunting like 
a brazen woman, but a natural, sweet- 
smelling, and certainly ten-cent one. 

"Say, ' said the hotel clerk, "this is 
gettin' Waldoriian, eh?" 

"I believe," said the landlady, " in 
feeding my boarders' souls as well as 
their bodies." 

The landlady's gentleman friend from 

upon his turbulent soup. ^ 

"Special rates for theological stu- 
dents?" he asked. 

"I mean the intellectual soul," said 
the landlady. 

"Seems to mc it's only the new spaper 
woman who's gettin* any good out of 
this new deal," suid the hotel clerk. 
"Each individual and his special re- 
quirements should be considered. Yes.

FRIDAY, 



7, 



Thk old yenr. with its hopes ai d its 
fear,, its bright realizations and its 
bitter disappointments, its sighs and 
its Us; r , has passed away. It consti- 
tuted one page in the great book of 
life, upon which every deed, for weal 
« r for woe, was recorded, and upon 
which the bright and the dark spots 
are mysteriously placed, telling the 
true story of real life. 

Now that we have be^un to fill an- 
other page, let us pause and consider 
the deep responsibility which rests 
upon us. Let us contemplate, calmly 
and dispass.ouately, the effect of our 
words and deeds, not only upon our 
own characters, but upon those with 
whom we mingle in the dreary battle 
of li'e Let us brighten the page with 
I of charity and words of cheer 
have fallen so low as to bo dc 
of influence, and, before the court 
of Heaven, we will be held responsi- 
ble, for our many misdeeds, just in 
proportion to our opportunities to 
know bet -er and to realize tha e 
of our way. 

Life is only a book, large or small, 
consisting of as many pages as years 
we have live!; the good deeds shining 
in pure, golden light and the evil 
deeds represented by dark blurs and 
blots. The baok is always open to 
the inspection of mankind, and from 
its pages our 



broad daylight on the public square.

are above the uvjrage in iutel iyenc. 
At any rate, let us hope so. If they 
are they will attend promptly to what

sin no more.

ern, by common consent, celebrate the 
beginning of a new year with festive 
rejoicing. 1 he time of reckoning has 
varied with different nations. The 
Athenians began the year in June, 
the Romans, for a time, in March, the 
Persians on August 11th, and the Chi- 
nese in February.

The Kentucky Legislature assem- 
bled at Frankfort Tuesday. As the 
democrats have majorities in both 
houses, their caucus nominees were 
elected without much ceremony. The 
governor's message is a rather wlndj- 
document, the gist of which is as fol- 
lows: It bitterly arraigns peace offi- 
thatthey have been in 

legislation fo- 
llouses of Reform; relief for Court of 
Appeals; more stringent regulations 
for punishment of election frauds. It 
shows the State's indebtedness to be 
S4.459.503. 47. It declares the Separate 
Coach law unconstitutional and strong 
ly advocates it's repeal. It asks for 
the prohitition of the sale of cigar- 
retts and their material. It claims 
that as a result of raiders the State's 
holdings in turnpike stock have shrunk 
in value from $400,000 to $100,000, and 
says "If this spirit (of lawlessness) is 
is not far dis 
be complete 

ly under the control of swashbucklers 




at of a 

tisan board to control prisons and 
charitable institutions and for econ- 
omy's sake the abolition of the Bureau 
of Agriculture and the Land Office is 
recommended, the office of Jailer is 
declared useless, and the minor courts 
rigorously condemned for useless ex- 
penditures. 

Many matters of minor importance 
are* touched upon and the Hancock 
county officials severely criticised for 
failure to punish the lynchers of the 
negro, Boeorod, who was hanged in 



Coxoicss convened YVednos lay. Lit- 
tle legislation is expected be .'ore next 
we.k. In the IIousj the time will be 
devoted miinly to the civil 6erv'ce de- 
bate, which prom's s to be unusually 
lively if not sensational at times. In 
the Senate the subjects scheduled for 
early consideration are the Hawaiian 
question, the Corb-'tt contest, the Im- 
migration Hi]l a;. 1 1 ti lauciul legisla- 



Ri touts from Ohio look gloomy for

sacrifice anything or anybody iu order 
to promote his own selfish welfare,

the peop'.e do "learn'' them, 
are floored so flatly that they 
rise again. 



Senator Dehor will withdraw his 
bill to reform the civil service and sub- 
stitute therefor a bill calling for tot a' 
repeal, lie thinks the new bill will 
be more likely to secure Democratic 
support. The civil service is too great 
a protection to congressmen from the 
army of office seekers for them to ever 
repeal it. All this :uss about the re- 
peal is done for show.

The following is another editorial 
from the Interior Journal of recent 



We have not consulted Gov. Mc- 
Crcary as to whether he will be a can- 
didate for Congress next year, but we 
are satisfied that there is a general de- 
mand for him to make the race. His 
unswerving fidelity to the democratic 
party: his success in his past races for 
Congress: his devotion to duty while a 
member of that body and the position 
he took as a representative, make dem- 
ocrats who desire the success of the 
party instinctively turn to him as the 
man to redeem the district Without 
discussing his length} 7 record asadcin- 
ocrat, which we could with great 
credit to him, we shall only refer to 
the two last campaigns, which tested 
democrats more thoroughly than ever 
before. Gov. McCieary actively sup- 
ported Rryan and made speeches for 
him and the platform at various points 
in the State in the last presidential 
campaign. He also supported John R 
Thompson, the democratic nominee 
for Congress, and made speeches for 
him in the district, one of which was 
in Stanford by invitation when he 
made a rousing appeal for Dry an. 
Thompson and democracy. 

In the campaign this year, he made 
a numler of speeches for Shackelford 
and county democratic tickets. His 
speech in the convention that nomi- 
nated Shackelford was received With 
great favor and his devotion to demo- 
cratic candidates and democratic plat- 
forms was acceptable to all In the 
Senatorial race two years ago, he 




like 

friends to go into the caucus and sup- 
port the nominee, promising to do so 
himself no matter who was nominated. 
The member who put him in nomina- 
tion moved to make Senator Rlack- 
btfra's nomination unanimous and it 
was so idone, when he received a ma- 
jority of the votes. 

The governor has said to friends, we 
learn, who have approached him on 
the subject that the success of the 
democratic party in this Congressional 
district, is paramount to his success 
and that he is ready to actively sup- 
port the candidate nominated by the 
democratic party. 

We have shown that Shackeiford on- 
ly beat Railey 586 in this district and 
when the votes of Hindman and the 
other candidates for appelate clerk are 
subtracted it was shown that he lost 
the district by 945. The claim can not 
therefore be made that this is a dead 
sure democratic district It will be- 
hoove the democrats to put forth their 
best and strongest man. Let there be 
no unseemly scramble for the place, 
but let eyery democrat seek the good 
of the party and with a harmonious 
nomination we will sweep the district 
as of yore. There will be but one 
office voted for in November and the 
candidate will have to look after the 
organization and bear the burdens of 
the campaign without the aid of other 
candidates. We believe that Gov. Me- 
tre ary is more fully capable of mak- 
ing a successful campaign than any 
man in the district, but if convinced 
otherwise, we are ready to accept any 
good man, who can pilot us safely to 
victory. *

Your typo made a mistake in our

81.55 per barrel, instead of $2.55, as he

him off this time. 

There was a small crowd at the sale

Resolutions. 

The Fiscal Court, at its last meeting 
in December, passed the following 
resolutions: 

Whereas, on Jan. 1, 1898, James A. 
Daker and James Saunders retire to 
private life after an honorable service 
of the former of 22 years, and of the 
latter of 1 year, continuously, as mem- 
bers of this court, 

Whereas, during all those years 
they have unfalteringly, and with an 
eye single to justice and the rights of 
the people ui, charged their duties 
with absolute integrity and regardless 
of praise or censure of those they 
served, and, 

Whereas, their resolutions with the 
remaining members and officers of the 
Court have been uniformly courte  us 
and pleasant and nothing allowed to 
mar the friendly and most cordial in 
tercourse between them. 

Resolved, that this court deeply 
feels and regrets the loss of the f urth 
er counsel and assistance of said mem 
bers, and deplores their departure 
from this Court and extends to them 
its best wishes for their future welfare 
and success and believing en 1 know- 
ing that the rising generation and fu 
ture Courts may well profit by the con- 
duct and example of these it's honors 
ble members, it is hereby ordered that 
these be spread at large upon the rec- 
ords of the Court and be certifiel by 
it's Clerk to the families of it's said re- 
tiring members.

Andrew Jtickson Brown. 
As many of our older Garrard county 
tizans remember the subject of the 
following sketch, we reproduce it in 
full from Monday's Courier Journal: 

The old days were truly good old 
days, but even when the political his- 
tory of Kentucky was still in its U.- 
fancy leaders of the contending par- 
ties resorted to strategem to land as 
winners the candidates they support- 
ed. Away back before the war the 
parties in Kentucky, that antagonized 
each other over office and issues were 
the Democrats and Whigs. Down in 
Garrard county the Whigs were in the 
ijority, but a story still survives-a 
legacy to the oldest residents-of how 
the Hon. Andrew Jackson Brown, of 
Lancaster, lawyer, surveyor and a 
Democratic leader, made the Whigs 
tremble with fear on a certain election 
da3 , though the men who espoused the 
principles of Democracy were in a 
hopeless minority. Andrew Jackson 
R.-own was a native of Virginia, hav- 
ing been born and reared in famous 
old Albemarle county. In his early 
youth he moved with his parents to 
Lancaster, Ky. , and there gained 
prominence as an attorney and a sur- 
veyor, many men in that day follow- 
ing both professions. 

Rrown was always an ardent Dem- 
ocrat and though he was well aware 
of the odds against him and of the im- 
possibility of victory perching on the 
Democratic banner, he never failed to 
make a plucky fight for the Democratic 
candidates. He threw heart and soul 
into the canvass, and being elcq lent 
in speech and conversant with the 
leading topics of the day, never failed 
to mi:ke an address when the occasion 
presented Jtself. He was also possess- 
ed of an imposing physique and al- 
ways commanded the greatest atten- 
tion from h s audiences. 

It was during a race for State Rep- 
resentative that Mr. Rrown determin- 
ed to stir up consternation among the 
Whig forces, though there were but 
fifty-three Democratic voters in the 
whole county at the time. No one 
knew this, however, except Mr. Rrown. 
The race was made when elections 
consumed three days instead of one 
and when all voters cast their ballots 
at the county seat instead of the more 
convenient rural precincts. 

Mr. Rrown groomed for Representa- 
tive Dan Ray, a prominent citizen of 
Lancaster, a large slave owner and 
considered one of the wealthiest men 
in Garrard county. Mr. Ray's candid- 
acy having been duly announced, Mr. 
toll proceeded to tour the whole 
county, quietly urging ail Democratic 
voters to assemble in Lancaster the 
first day of the election and to cor e 
in time to cast their votes in the morn- 
ing. He never missed seeing a single 
Democrat, for on the morning of the 
election they were all massed about 
the poll in Lancaster, all talking 
about the encouraging prospect for 
their candidate. The Whigs were dis- 
mayed. They hovered about the poll, 
awe-stricken at the exhibition of such 
unexpected Democratic strength. 
They were taken completely off guard 
and many hurried and secret confer- 
ences followed. 

Ry noon all the fifty-three Demo- 
crats had voted. It was then that the 
Hon. Andrew Jackson Rrown threw 
off his coat ; rolled up his sleeves and 
mounting a large box in front of the 
poll, announced the withdrawal of 
his candidate. M-. Ra;\ he said, w; s 
wealthy. He had never sought office 
before and needed none. Rut he w s 
a Democrat and he had merely accep . 



ed the nomination to show the real 
strength of his party— how it could 
sweep the field without exertion if it 
so desired. 

It was not until 
the Whigs saw how they had 
tricked. I n the interim they were 
greatly discomtitted, believing them- 
selves to be really outnumbered by the 
constituents of the opposing party.

came v.ry much attached to them. 

The many friends of Capt. W. J. 
Kinnaird are delighted to see him able 
to be out for a drive, and hope that his

house, except to be brought from Mid- 
dlesboro here. 

A Record man droppep into see G. 
M Patterson yesterday, and was pleas- 
ed to find that gentleman very much 
improved. The several months' seige 
of fever has pulltd him down in flesh, 
but he is in good hands, who will 
guard against a relapse and keep him 
on the mend. 

Mr. J. Joseph was taken suddenly ill 
Tuesday evening, lut Dr. Kinnaird 
patched him up and he soon got all 
right. He had been to Danville to the 
funeral of Miss Weisiger, and the cold, 
disagreeable weather knocked the 
clever old fellow out. Jake is two 
yards wide and all wool, and you can't

Mr. Henry Simpson, assisted by his

MRS. ELIZABETH HUDSON. 



Remarks of El ler George 0HM at her 
Funeral. 



Mrs. Elizabeth Hudson, whose maid- 
en uame was Arnold, was born in this 
county, April a:, 1822. She was.there- 
fore, seventy-five years of age last 
April. She was married to Morgan 
Hudson fifty-five years ago last July. 
On the 2ath July she went with him to 
live at the old home near Sugar Creek, 
and continued an unbroken residence 
there until the 12th of January last, 
the time of brother Hu Ison's death. 
Sha then seemed to be in robust 
health, but his death lay S3 heavily 
upon her, and the breaking up of the 
old home was such a revolution In her 
life that she did not survive him quite 
a year. 

It seemed that the whole of her life 
had gone out with his death. Their 
Uvea had certainly mingled into one. 
Even when she was comparatively 
well she constantly longed for the 
tine of departure when she might 
meet her li e-long companion where 
lives are never rudely swept asunder 
One brother and one sister survive her. 
When sister Hu lsqn was yet quite a 
girl she acc-'ptod Christ aud never aL 
ter faltered in her devotion to Him. 
Her husband came into the church 
qui e late in life. He was entangled 
in the doetrinal difficulties of these 
days, and could not see his way clear. 
But wh§a he saw the steadfast devo- 
tion of his young wife; and how she 
would saddle up a horse, and with one 
of the children behind her, always go, 
evon to the Saturday meeting, so com- 
mon in those days, he yield d to the 
persuasion of her life. What logic, 
and argument would not do for him, a 
consecrated personality did. When he 
saw her thorough earnestness in the 
way qf Christ, he, himself obo/ed the 
gospel. 

And sister Hudson was a woman of 
strong convictions about everything. 
She did nothing iu doubt She be» 
lieved something until the very last 
Her religion was not of the jelly-fish 
sort She was brought up in times 
that tried men's souls in almost every- 
thing, especially in religion. She had 
a firm hold on the future. In my con- 
versations with her during, and before 
her sickness, it seemed that heaven 
was as real tu hep as the present life. 
This is always so with people of strong 
taith. i:-he was a woman of robust, 
common sense, a devoted home-keep- 
er, wl.e and in.jther. One of the type 
of women who have made historic and 
glorious so many of the older homes 
in our country. She fills the descrip- 
tion given by Solomon in Prov. 31:10: 
31: 

10. Who can find a virtuous woman? 
for her price is, far above rubies, 

11. The heart of her husband doth 
safely trust in her, so that he shall 
have no need of spoil. 

12. She will do nim good an 1 not evil 
all the days of her li:e. 

13. She seelceih wool, and flax, and 
wo; keth willingly with her h inds. 

14. She is like the merchants' ships; 
she br;ngeth her food from afar. 

15. She riseth also while it is yet 
night, and giveth meat to her house- 
hold, and a portion to her maidens. 

1(J. She considereth a field, anl buy- 
eth it; with the fruits of her hands 
she planteth a vineyard. 

17. She girdeth her loins with 
strength and strengthened her arms. 

18. She perceiveth that her merchan- 
dise is good; her candle goeth not out 
by night 

19. She layeth her hands to the spin- 
dle, and her h mds hold the distaff. 

20. She stretcheth out her hand to 
the poor; yea, she reachetb forth her 
hands to the needy. 

21. She is not a'raid of the snow for 
her household; for all her household 
are cothed with scarlet 

22. She maketh herself coverings of 
tapestry; her clothing is silk and pur- 
ple. 

23. Her husband is known in the 
gates, when he sitteth among the eld- 
ers ot the land. 

24. She maketh fine linen, and sell- 
eth it; and delivereth girdles unto the 
merchant 

25 Strength and honour are her 
clothing; and she shall rejoice in time 
to come. 

3d. She openeth her m  uth with wis- 
dom; and in her tongue is the law of 
kindness, 

27. She looketh well to the ways of 
her household, and eateth not the 
bread of idleness. 

38. Her children arise uo, and call 
her blessed; her husband also, and he 
■ praiseth her. 

I 29. Many daughters have done vlr- 
] tuously, but thou excellest them all. 

30. Favour is deceitful, and beauty 
is vain; but a woman that leareth the 
Lord, she shall be praised. 

31. Give her of the fruit of her 
hands; and let her own works praiss 
her in the gates. 

Four children survive her — two sons 
and two daughters. They all can rise 
up and call her blessed. Almost her 



last words to me were words of com- 
mendation for her ciiildren. She died 
in perfect peace in the rem ^rkably 
full and fr*e exercise of all her faeal- 
ties. With the dissolution of the body 
there came a triumphant Spirit, whieh, 
released from its p -ison-hou ;e, mount- 
ed upward to the skies. Her last 
»rds and actions bespoke her kindly 
welfare for other* 

r own. With intellect 
and heart aglow with love to the 
very last, she called each member of 
the household to her side anl bade 
them good-bye as she went with the 
Saviour through the valley of the 
shadow into the light and splendor of 
the eternal morning.

It is Easy to Tell. 



People who fail to look after their 
health are like the carpenter who neg- 
lects to sharpen his tools. People are 
not apt to get anxious about their 
health soon enough. If you are "not 
quite well" or "half sick" have you ever 
thought that your kidneys may be the 
cause of your sickness? 

It is easy to tell by setting aside 
your urine for twenty-four hours,a sed- 
iment or settling indicates an unheal- 
thy condition of the kidneys. When 
urine stains linen it is evidence of kid- 
ney trouble. Too frequent desire to 
urinate, scanty supply, pain or dull 
ache in the back is also convincing 
proof that the kidneys and bladder are 
out of order. 

There is satisfaction in knowing that 
the great remedy Dr. Kilmer's Swamp 
Root, fulfills every wish in relieving 
weak or diseased kidneys and all forms 
of bladder and urinary troubles. Not 
only does Swamp-Root give new life 
and activity to the kidneys -the cause 
of trouble, but by treating the kidneys 
it acts as a tonic for the entire consti- 
tution. If you need a medicine take 
Swamp-Root— it cures. Sold by drug- 
gists, price fifty cents and one dollar,

more virulent form, resulting in a total

OF LEXINGTON, KY. 

our x»x^tv. 

Our plan is a new application of an old principle, and is based up 
on the actual experience of successful life insurance companies, cover 
tag a period of over 200 years. The same principles govern both, only- 
WE pay while you LIVE. 

THEY pay when you DIE. 
WE offer the INVESTMENT features. 
THEY protect in case of DEATH. 
With them, death is the moving factor, causing the payment of the 
policy; with us, a definite and fixed mathematical rule, in lieu of death, 
matures the policy. 

INSURANCE IS A LAW OF AVERAGE. 

They figure on so many men out of a thousand dying— we figure 
on so many policies, They kill the man — we kill the policy. 

There is no reason why a man should die to reap the ben- 
lit of his investment. 

We return an average of $2.30 for every dollar paid us, and yet we 
assume an obligation less than one-third as great as has been assumed 
and paid for years by the leading life insurance companies of America. 

OUR 

Only about twenty (20) per cent, of the people are insurable. Only 
the sound and healthy, who least need it's advantages, can ohtain 
life insurance.' Why should there not be a means provided whereby 
the other eighty (So) per cent, of the population can carry an invest- 
ment the same as the favored few who can get life insurance? Our mis- 
sion is to open the door to the entire population to enjoy the same or 
greater benefits for an equal or less expenditure, considering the ad- 
vantage to be derived, and that those advantages may be enjoyed during 
life by the one making the investment. 

NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESS. 

That our plan is popular and based upon sound business princi- 
ples, is evidenced by our large and increasing membership, as shown 
by our remarkable 'Exhibit of Growth, See literature. 

We court the clysest scrutiny and most thoroug investigation. No 
statement made that cannot be verified by actual results. 

Others Make Money. Why Not You? 

The endorsement given this Company by the investment of bankers. law- 
yers, merchants, ministers, doctors, railroad men, m-ehauic-j— in fact, men of 
business sagacity in every vocation of life— is an evidence of the soundness of 
our system.
