A Righteous Deed-A Father Kills
the Seducer of Ills Daughter.
For several weeks past our neighboring
county of Meade has been agitated by a
scandal case, which culminated on Sun
day last in a bloody tragedy, wherein a
young and recently married man paid the
just penalty of his life for the deed of a
beast. The particulars of the affair as
we gather'tbem are as follows:
Sometime in last August there was a
picnic held in that county, which was at
tended, among others of the young people,!
by a young and beautiful girl of sixteen
or seventeen summers, the daughter of
Mr. Green Parr, a respectable and well-
to-do farmer, who was escorted to the pic
nic grounds, which were several miles
from her home, by a young gentleman,
who left her there in the evening it being
her intention to pass the night with a
young lady friend in the neighborhood
with the understanding that he was to re
turn next day and-take her back home.
When she was ready to repair to the house
where she was to spend .the night, Ben.
Elder,a young man who had formerly paid
her some attention.-proflfered to take her
there in his bnggy, an offer "she unfortu
nately accepted, for on'th'etway.the villain
accomplished her ruin.
Recently the effects of his base conduct
began to become but too apparent Her
parents, unsuspicious of tlie-woful truth,
at first called in a rooldoctor of the neigh
borhood, who pronounced her afflicted
with "dropsy of the stomach." Fearing
to trust her case in his band, they -sent
her off' for treatment to regular practi
tioner in whose, knowledgeand skill they
had unbounded confidence.. A. very slight
examination of the patient revealed to him
the true state of the case. . When told that
she would soon become a mother, the poor
girl's grief and shame were so .excessive
that serious fears were al first entertained
for her reason. .When she became suffi
ciently composed to tell the story of her
undoing, it was the same as we have sub
stantially related above.
In the meantime, and but a short while
after having accomplished, the ruin of Miss
Parr, young'Elder marrhd into a highly
respectable family across the river in In
diana, and was living with his wifes pa
rents at time his villainy, towards Miss
Parr transpired. When the truth was re
vealed to the ruined girl's family, the first
feeling that entered toe breasts of the
father and 6on was that of revenge. The
latter sought 4the, vile seducer at his new
home in Indiana Tor the purpose of execu
ting summary justice upon the destroyer
of their sister. For two weeks the young
Parrs kept fruitless watih for him on the
Indiana side. It fiubseqtently transpired
that he had returned ts Kentucky and
gone into concealment among his relatives.
A hint of this reached the ears of the elder
Parr on Saturday nigit, and Sunday
morning, arming himselland with despe
rate purpose in his heart, the old man set
put to hunt down the 'villainous seducer
An luck would have it, be met the ecoun
drel on the highway. Wbat passed be
tween them no one save Green Parr and
an approving God knows. All the world
will probably ever know is that the
wronged father shot down the
beastly wretch who had wrought
dishonor to his house shot him
down like a dog. - It -was a righteous
deed, and will be applauded by every man
who reveres virtue in woman and abhors
vice in man.
OUR ROCKPORT LETTER.
Rockpobt, Kt. May 10.
Owing to a temporary suspension of
operations in the stave factory here,
Rockport is" not so lively as formerly.
Still it is improving more rapidly than
any place in my knowledge.
It is destined to be one of the first busi
ness places in the Green river region. The
incxhausible supplies of timber, suitable
to all manufacturing purposes, the abun
dance of coal, its facilities. forreciving
and shipping, render this its manifest
destiny. We have already a stave facto

and there is now in course of erection a

BEAVER DAM ITEMS.
Beater Dam, Ky., May 11.
We have had so much wind and rain
for the past few days, that all the news
has been entirely blown or washed out of
town. The farmers have taken advan
tage of every sunshiny hour, and planted
corn as fast as possible.
The terrific winds, accompanied by
roaring thunder and flashes of lightning,
on Saturday night, roused many a sweet
eeper from their pillows. Some said
they thonght the end of the world near at

for so many of us are unprepared.

the hogs and cattle. This looks hard on
the farmers, but "He doeth all things in
On Sunday afternoon, one young gen
tleman sauntering leisurely along, dressed
in Broadway style, had his "plug'' lifted
from his head and borne by the breeze to
little stream not far distant, and it is
now probably sailing o'er the beautiful
Ohio. The rain by this time descending,
e hoisted his umbrella to preserve the
gloss on those new clothes, but the wind,
taking a good hold-on-it, he was carried
some distance, reminding' us of the time
that Hoy'a jack-had an umbrella attached
to his tail.

CAxvvir.LS,.KY., May 10.
At last beautiful and balmy spring has
put in her appearance, and our farmers
welcome her with joy. Corn is being
planted rapidly in this section, and
though, late. as the.epring.is, a good, crop
is expected in this vicinity.

We notice that the card of ex-consta

Oravson County Herald. We don t know,
but suppose he is offering himself for the
office at the May ejection afloT.
The election in this district last Satur
day was a very exciting one; in fact, more
so than we ever witnessed before, Brown
and Milligan being the cause. Brown

evening, when they tied, and the contest
