Tho typical Koutttcklau is a
a man of strong feelings, of deep
passions perhaps, but with thoso passions
well tinder coutrol. Ho does nothing
to excess, but nil tho pleasures of
lifo minister to his happiness. He does
not drink to excess for ho knows a man
in his cups is n brute, not a fit companion
for any man. Ho plays cards for tho
plcasuro of tho momnUt, not for greed.
Ho is not boastful, for ho has too much
personal nnd State prido to care to
mnko an impression. Kindly in all his
instincts, genial, generous, cordial,
hospitable, imaginative, even sentimental;
ho is devoted to his family, to his
State, to his country. Ho treats all mon
as his equals, for ho knows no
superior. Ho cringes to no ono, cheats
no ono, distrusts no ouc, and Is novor
deceived but onco. Ho is fond of tlio
horse, breeds him nnd r.tcos him, only
to dovclop, him, stop by step, a finer,

Tho race course attracts him only

DEATH IN AWFUL FORM
ONE OF BRECKENRID0E COUNTY'S
Dies in the Horrible Throes of
Hydrophobia-John B. Hunter,
a Farmer, the Unfortunate
IIIH HON" WA.S AI-SO
One of the most horrible deaths that
over occurred in this county was that
of Mr. John It.IIuntcr.athis homo near
Glendcanc, last Thursday evening. Ho
died of hydrophobia, and tho particu

Somo weeks ago ono of his neighbors
mado him n present of a small pup. Ho
took the animal homo, nud on tho 7th
of last month it got fastoued in the
crack of a fonco. Mr. Hunter nnd his
littlo son, Owen, ten or twelve years of
ago, assisted it out, but in doing so the
animal bit tho father on tho finger and
the son on tho hand.
Three days afterward tho pup showed
symptoms of tho rabies aud Mr. Hunter
killed it. He then wont to
ro and applied to tho
wound on his finger, but it took no effect.
Ho was iu Clovorport tho 0th
inst, two weeks ago to-day, contracting
for material with which to build a
now house, but he did not talk much
about tho dog bite. Last Monday tho
llth inst., ho wont to Hardinsburg to
apply a mad-stone, but again it would
Ho was well posted on tho symptoms
of hydrophobia, and it seems that bo
had read up on tho subject after he had
received tho fatal bite. Ho was sitting
in Horace Scott's store at Hardinsburg
on tho evening of tho llth, after tho
had boon ineffectually applied
to his wounded finger, when be
felt a littlo tingling pain in the finger,
and ho then remarked that there was
the first symptom of hydrophobia.
He went homo that night, and by
tho timo ho arrived his wholo arm was
paining him. Ho was thirsty and wanted
a drink of water, but when ho attempted
to tnko it, an offensive shudder
wont over his frame and ho flow back
from it as if it wcro a poisonous reptilo.
Ho then remarked to hiswifo that thero
was another symptom of hydrophobia.
Ho grow worse through tho night,
and still worso on Tuesday. His arm,
shoulder, throat and chest gave him
much pain. Ho craved water but could
not bear to look at it. Howover.ho mado
ono despernfo effort to tako a drink on
Tuesday, and when tho cup reached his
mouth he seized it with his teeth, nnd
it had to bo wrenched from him, but ho
swallowed no water. Ho then said to
his wifo "That settles it; I havo hydrophobia
and nm going to dio of it."
Ho grew still worso Tuesday night,
nnd was gettin g to bo a very sick man.
On Wednesday morning ho called his
family together, rend a chapter iu tho
Biblo and had family prayer, ns was
his custom. After this ho grew rapidly
worso, and about 0 o'clock ho
his first convulsion, Theso
continued at intervals through tho day
aud night. His thirst was so great that
ho begged his attendants to try to get
him somo water in somo manner that ho
could not seo it, and for them not to lot
him hear thorn pouring it. They consequently
filled a bottlo with water nud
wrapped a cloth around it, completely
hiding it, and conveyed it to his mouth.
Ho took about two swallows, when ho
was thrown into nuothor convulsion
and could tako no moro of it. From
this on tho convulsions grow moro
and moro severe. All through
Wednesday night ho had his attendants
to walk him about to koop him moving.
Ho bogged them to ho careful while
holding him whon ho was in tho horrible
convulsive throes and not to lot him
bltoior otherwise iujuroany of them. Ho
begged them to keep womon and children
away from him, and when a woman
or child would atteit.pt to come
near him ho would motion thorn back.
Whon tho convulsions woro on him
ho would scream so that ho could bo
heard for a roilo and a-half, and tho
neighborhood for that distaaoo around
was kept awako all through Wednesday
night. Ho would froth nt tho mouth
nnd utter unearthly howls liko thoso of
a dog. Nothing oould keep him still,
and u puff of wind would throw him Into

ternoon, ho sprang from off tho bed
with a moro horrible scream than uuy

Ho was perfectly rational up to the
time of his death except whon in a convulsion.
Thou it took fivo or six stout
men to hold him. ' Ho realized flint ho
was going to dio and mado all arrangements
for tho disposal and. oomplotion
of his busiuess affairs. Ho Instructed
bis wlfo to oompleto tho house which he
contracted and movo to Glendeauo and

Fix Their Own Salaries.
One of tho most remarkable features
of the management of our postal system
is that nearly all of tho postmasters
of tho country fix their owu salaries.
Tioy are not permitted to draw nny
amount 'that pleases them, but they
make tho returns to the department
without supervision, on which returns
their compensation is based. Tho postmasters
who are paid iu this way aro
tho "fourth-class" postmasters tho
men whoso compensation is less than
31,000 per nnnum. When tho compensation
of a postmastor readies
1,000 a year, his ofllco is raised to tho
"Presidential" class. Tho
postmasters aro appointed by tho Postmaster-General
without tho "advice
and consont" of nny ono. Postmasters
of tho first, secoud and third classes are
appointed by tho President nnd confirmed
by tho Senate. At tho beginning
of this year thcro wero 08,800 post-offices
iu tho United State?, nnd of theso
IV!,:!8'J wero of tho fourth-class.
The postmaster appointed by tho
President draws a fixed salary. At ono
timo nil of tho postmasters drew fixed
salaries. But tho sudden growth of
very small towns mado re-adjustments
of salaries at tlieso towns so frequent
that Congress determined on an clastic
compensation, to bo proportioned to
tho business transacted at tho office.
According to this arrangement, if tho
business of an ofllco was twice as heavy
in tho latter part of the year as it was
in the first part, tho postmaster's compensation
would bo increased proportionately.
At first this sliding scale of
compensation was based on the sales of
stamps. But this offered many temptations
to dishonesty. Postmasters
would soil largo quantities of stamps at
a discount so as to realize a commission
on them. They would uso tho stamps
in making purchases, aud then credit
their offices with tho sale of them. In
particular they would send the stamps
to newspapers to pay for subscriptions,
which thoy solicited; and thero was a
standing advertisement in most of the
big newspapers somo years ago offering
stamps for sale iu any quantity. No
doubt somo of tho newspapers sold
stamps at a discount. t
Tho now system gives tho postmaster
in tho country ofllco n commission on
tho amount of stamps which he cancels.
That is, ho is paid according to tho
amount of businebs which goes through
his ofllco. But in supervising tho returns
from 0.7,000 offices tho Post dflico
Department must rely on the honesty
of tho postmaster. It cannot keep a
forco of inspectors nt work overseeing
tho cancellations at tho small offices.
Tho postmaster keeps uu account of tho
value of tho stamps ho cancels each
day, and makes returns under oath to
tho Deportment. His compensation
is calculated on tho basis of
tho business reported. If tho cancellations
for a quarter (threo months)
amount to S'0 or less, tho Department
pays him a commission of 100 per cout.
On tho next 3100 tho commission is CO
per cent., on tho next 3200, CO per cent.,
and on all above that, 40 per cout., until
tho porcentago aggregates 3250.
Theoretically tho amount of business
at a fixes tho postmaster's
compensation, practically ho fixes it for

members of tho force imagine sho will
expect them to wear dress suits aud tako
turns courting her, and register a solemn
vow to chaperoue ouo another and
keep a robust scream ou tap when left
alouo with her. But sho comes, and after
they havo become acclimated to her,
they find that, liko the dovil, sho is not
half so black as their funoy painted her.
"The advent of women in journalism
is shrouded iu mystery. Perhaps Iho
first pctticoated reporter bulldozed her
way into tho ofllco. Perhaps sho was
tinuggled in, oven as tlio dark horso
was rung iu ou the unsuspecting Trojans,
or perhaps sho camo in hand-in-hand
with that paresis provoker of
modern times, tho society column.
But, bo it ns it may, tlio woman roportor
has come, has como to stay, and hero
"Peoplo ofton ask tho qncstion, 'To
what do you attribute a woman's success
"A tall, lank girl with n Queen Anno
Ugnro 'and Mary Ann face, once told
mo in a burst of misplaced cniifldonoo
that sho got thero with both feet. Although
I tun not disposed to
tho valtio of leg talent in journalism,
yet in the catu of this particular
girl, I regarded tho assertion as a base
libel ou the entiro jourualistio layout.
So fur as I can seo in my limited experience
of two nnd n half years, a
succeeds oven as n man succeeds,
by hard work and brains, and whon
sho can proui to her chief that she is
ublo to sit down and writo a plain nows
item without stopping to ask if her hat
is ou straight, there is ovcry prospect
for her ultimate success.
"It has been my fato to fiud that in
journalism a woman Is treated with tho
most delicato aud beautiful oourtcsy
and consideration. Sir Walter Italcigh
threw dowu his cloak beforo Queen
F.lizabcth iu order that her dainty feet
might bo protected from tho mire of
Londou town. In a newspaper ofllco
of to-day, tho modern Sir Walter
cast tho purplo nnd fiuo gold of
thoir naturo boforo tho woman roportor
in order that the rough way may bo
inado smooth for her to tread.
"Thero aro somo peoplo so intensely,
immonsoly, and densely conventional,
that thoy would novor - havo placed
their jewels in soak to help Columbns
discover America. Theso peoplo
profess to bo shocked it tho woman
reporter is not forever intruding her
column as if to say to tho publlo, 'I am
a woman, I am writing this nrtiolo, and
don't you forget it. This is all nonsonse.
A woman should leavo her personality
at home hanging on a peg iu her ward
robe Sho should only romombcr that
sho is engaged to mako her paper a go,
and that as tho public is putting up tho
gato, money sho must shock, feed or
amuso it. i
"Peoplo who judgo a woman reporter
by her writing might tako warning by
this littlo anecdote:
"Mattio Onld, a famous Virginia
belle, was at Wbito Sulphur Springs.
She was esoortcd to hor ooltage ouo
' evening by a famous Southorn poll-!
ticlan, who attempted to hug nnd kiss
her en route. 1

you distinctly to understand that
though I am frisky I am not fast.'
"A few weeks later tho politician attended
tho races, and among tho horses
entered was ono named .Mattio Ould.
Ho instantly bet all his money on her,
only to fiud that sho camo in way
tho others, yet frisking and scampering
ns if sho had boon tho winner.
"'I might havo known it,' said ho to
himself, 'for Mattio herself told mu she
was frisky, but nut fast.'
"Aud so it is with a woman reporter,
and plenso mnko n note of it, that
though her writings bo frisky, sho is

Hero is health, wealth, and happiness
to tho woman reporter. Sho's a pet
edition; may sho never go out of print.
May no irato subscriber over call at tho
ofllce with a shotgun to
her, and when tho right sort of .sweetheart
comes along may she bo liko her
paper ready for tho press."
