COUNTY COURT DAY.
It Will Soen lie Numbered With These
Things Tlmt Have Ilceii.
Net long age The Ledger icmnrkcd
the state of lethargy into which County
Court Day seemed te have fallen. That
the historic day is en the wane is maul
festly noticeable in Mnysvllle. It is evi
dently net in keeping with the progress
ive ideas of these modern times. The
old-time Kcuttickinns will hall the Html
departure of this monthly leunien of
friends and acquaintances with regret.
J. R. Mnrrs, who has spent a life time
in the heart of the region where the
court day originally nourished in its
greatest g'ery, writes ns fellows about It
in The Kentucky Hemestead:
"Court day live stock sales have been
declining in Kentucky for several yenis,
nnd nre net any longer te be regarded as
Important indexes for traders and far
mers. It is new the exception te the
rule te tlnd en the streets for snip, strictly
Ne. 1, geed stock. This is due te the
change lu the manner of selling. Agents
of the commission houses scour the coun
try nnd nick up or engage all geed stork
when it Is ready for ninrkct, leaving only
the undesirable and culled lets for County
Court street sales. Aud it may be added
that the death of the old-fashioned Ken
tucky Court Day is euly n question of
time. That day when the farmers of
several counties would meet once a
month for the transaction of accumniu
latcd business has passed away, and year
by year the court crowds grew smaller.
The farmer no longer keeps Ids money at
home ' in an old sock,' but when he wants
te pay a neighbor a sum he writes out a
check and sends it by mail, instead of
riding ten or fifteen miles te deliver it in
person. Still there is something pecu
liarly attractive about ' Court Day.' Men
who never grasp a plewhandlc nnd
hardly knew growing wheat from hemp
go from court te court and mingle with
the crowds, but they usually deal in poli
tics." Wn acknowledge receipt of programs
