Greetings to the Blue Grass State
TO those who have dwelt within the land of old Kentucky, can
the vastness and richness of the country be appreciated.
To those who have tilled the soil and reaped the products thereof,
can the quality and quantity be known. But to those who are in
close relation to the rural community of this great territory, such as
the Hardware and Implement Dealers are to this great territory, can
the value of its people to the nation be estimated. The abundant
crops of Cotton, Wheat , Corn and Alfalfa , and immense herds of
live stock, comprising the finest bred Horses in the country, in
cluding Cattle, Sheep and Hogs, being the main feature in the agri
cultural districts, but neither can be raised without the spacious
fields which must be enclosed with American Wire Fence, and the
better the quality of Fence, the better quality and quantity the
production of Crops and Live Stock will be.
The community at large do not appreciate to what extent the
Prosperity of the American Farmer has advanced during the past
ten years. It almost sounds like a fairy story, but it is a fact that
the Agricultural Community is today furnishing the coin which
propels the large business interests in our Eastern Metropolis. The
fluctuation of the stock market on Wall street does not interest
them, for the reason that they themselves produce the commodi-
ties upon which the world subsists. This, in itself places our Farm,
er Friend at once in a position to be envied by the monarchs of the
. We wish to state that we have placed our order for several
cars of American Fence to arrive in a few days.
Also, we wish to inform our friends that we have a straight
tip that manufacturers are going to advance the price on Imple
ments of every description on May 1st. It is a positive fact, and
we advise you to buy what you need now. Our two large ware
houses are filled with Implements, and as long as these last you get
them at the same old pride.

To Oat Rid of Double Chin.
Flabblness about the cheeks Is su
perfluous, expressionless animal fat,
due to malnutrition, provoked by a
dtsorganled nervous system. The
bands or ribbons ot fat can be tight
ened up into muscle by local exercise,
1 e., bending the head In so many di
rections as the anatomy will allow.
To arrest further deposit of this dis
figuring tissue the anti-fat treatment
is prescribed, which excludes or re
duces the supply of foods, containing
bugar and starch, and Includes system
atic exercise, temperance tn eating
and drinking, and absorbing occupa
tion. As the nerve force Is Jtnall, the
system needs nerve foods In the
shape of light tonics and a dietary
that yields sufficient nourishment with
out overheating the blood or overtax
ing the stomach.

abundant fresh air day and night, to
cleanse and invigorate tho lungs; wa

A GREAT MINSTREL.
Geo of the most laughable things
over seen behind the foot-lights of
tbo Lyric, was tho great, grand, gor
geous troupe known as Barlow & Wil
son's Minstrels, Monday night. Tho
show was so good that we bad our
money's worth long beforo It was
over and would have made our de
parture, but a down-pour ot rain pro
vented. It was raining even on the
stage, possibly a providential hap
pening, and the red coats wero damp
ened in a manner that lent a tragic
effect to tho comic attempt. We
could sympathlzo with tbo minstrel
wo ourselves had only one "change,"
and stayed with them as wo wero In
Every act brought tho house down
in thundering applause, and the Jani
tor picked up half a wasbtub full ot
vest buttons next morning as a re
sult ot so much hysterical laughter.
A cross-eyed man with wavy hair
made a big hit when bo ascended to
a high noto in thu feminine pitch
and tbo thing bursted. It fact, all
the singing will bo long remembered.
Tho Jokes wero certainly treasures.
Generations after generations havo
carefully preserved them for posterity.
Tho final scene was Indeed touch
ing swaying the audienco from tears
to laughter. Words will hardly de
scribe this marvelous stunt. It was
tho nemo of theatrical classics; tboro
was a mingling of tho gravo uud the
gay of pathos and comedy that held
the audience spell-bound. This spec
tacular sceuo was composed ot ono
rnut chasing another doughface round
the stngu. Four tlmeB tho mut hit
thp doughfuce on tho posterior anat
omy with a shlnglo uud the curtain
fell to slow music.
