Companv of Kentucky," news ot whloh is
Just getting around the market, Cortainly
tlio Imperial has gone this far j lt will
probably go further.
Mr. John Plokroll, aRlohmond attorney,
hns Just f.led at Henderson, Ky., the ar
tlclea of Incorporation of tho now "Impe?
rial Tobacco Company of Kontucky," Tho
corporation Ib capitallased at $75,000, and

branch of the trade. The Inoorporators

Clark, of Llverpool. England. and George
A. Wllls, of Brlatol, England,
It ls expected that a blg. rehandling

WOULD HAVE SOLVED
But for the aocldontal arrlval and tlme
ly interference of two rcporters for The

wculd doubtless havo beon solvod for good
and all, whllo tho necosslty of ,condomn
lng the Shafer bulldlng wouid Ukewlse
have been obvlatod, for a, conflagration
was averted by tho fortunate appearanco
of the scribos in questlon,
Some ono occiipylng- the bulldlng to the
east of the postofflco, on Bank Streot,
dumped a lot of hot ashes ln a barrel,
whlch was placed near tho wall of the
house,. and the barrel was lgnited from
tho heat of the charred coal, burning
slowly for hours and flnally bolchlng
forth fiameB Just as the reportors hap
pened along tha streot;
The men woro on. tho other' slde of

FOR CITY SCHOOLS
That tho Sohool Board wlll get $5,000

beyond doubt, Tho Counoll has adopted
