Our neighbors across the river cling
to the traditional "goose-bone," and give
Tice and "Old Probs.," and all the other
weather-wise sages tbe go-by, believing
firmly In the inialibility of. their
own weather-prophet. Tim Louisville
Commercial gives us the following history
of the goose-bone, and what It indicates
for the coming winter months: "The
goose-bone is more closely watched in
Kentucky than lu any other part or the
country. It has been handed down
among the early traditions of the state,
and may be called the Kentucky
weather-prophet It Is to be found
in nearly every Kentucky home,
and in many parts of the state the farm
ers consult it, and prepare for handling
their crops in accordance with Its read
ings. The prophecy of the goose-bone
does not extend beyond the year in
which the goose was hatched, and the
prediction is for the three winter months
only. Take tho breast-bone of a last
spring's goose and divide it into three
equal parts, and the different divisions
will represent December, January and
February. The breast-bone of a goose.is
translucent and If clear when held up to
the light, the weather will be mild and
pleasant; but if covered with cloud-like
blots. It will be gloomy and cold ; tbe
heavier the blots, the colder will be the
weather. A study ot this year's goose
bone Indicates that the weather for
December will be cloudy and
gleomy, probably with much rain
and snow, not very cold, but, withal
a very disagreeable month. About
the last of December we shall have some
cold weather, which .will continue to
grow colder as January advances. The
month of January will be a cold one
uirougnout, with some very severe
weather during tbe last partol the month.
Onthe prophecy of the goose-bone.lt may
be predicted that about the last of Janu
ary we will have the coldest weather ex
perienced for a number of years. Febru
ary will be more pleasant aud spring
like, betokening an early return of the
flowers. During the last of the month,
however, there will be a few cold days,
but no severe weather. Such is the pro
phecy of the goose-bone, and as we have
the word ot a good old farmer up in
Woodford county that It has not failed
for fifty years, we may as well bo pre
pared to meet it, and need not be sur
prised if we have good skating on the
Ohio river during ttie latter part of Jan

U astonishing how drowning men
catch at straws, and how eager revolu
tionists with revolutionary Ideas are to

The. facts arc these : The train ran oft
the track because of a broken rail, and
not because Gen. Sheridan was on the
cars at all, for It is more than likely not
a half dozen persons knew he was on the
train. It is also true that obstructions
were placed on the track In Tcnnesscc,and
it just so happened that General Sheridan
was auoara me train, dui mere is every
evidence to believe that the dlgn of the
would-be murderers, were on the expre
messenger for the purpose of robbery.
It Is true. Gen. Sheridan was a badly
scared individual, but probably more on
account of his own conscience than any
thing else, lor it is presumed that a man
having to perform such dirty work a
the Grant faction has given him to do
would naturally feel scared at his own
