Rev. Young Goes a Gunning.
Rev. G. W. Young is not only the
best temperance speaker in this section
but he can handle a gun with as
much accurracy as he lifts center in
a temperance argument. Last week,
promptly upon the legal 'opening of
the bird season, Dr. Young packed
up his traps and accompanied by another
fine huntsman Mr. Neale Bennett,
went over to Fleming county
and spent fivo days shooting small
game. On Saturday night the couple
returned loaded down with the fruits
of their week's trip. Among their
trophies were one hundred and fifty
partridges. Dr. Young says that al
though he likes yellow-legged chickens
better than any other living Methodist
p eacher, he can sit up at a
partridge supper longer than any
minister in this countiy.
Old Maids Convention.
About twenty of Richmond's married
ladies on Friday last gave a
laughable entertainment at the Court
House, entitled the Old Maid's Convention.
They were assisted bv
some ot our most beautiful young
girls, and the transformation from
aged and decrepit maidens to blithe
and beautiful girls was accomplished
by moans of a rejuvenating machine
just invented by Mrs. Thos Thorpe.
Since the convention she has rejuvenated
5.432 old maids of Madison and
all the precincts are not yet heard
from. Miss Lear, of iNicholasville,
trained the company and to her tireless
work and talent is due the" successful!
rendition of the play. The
house was fairly jammed and $118
was netted for the Infirmary.
The cutest of the maids was little Marguerite

A good election story has just
come to light on the Hon. JC. Tutt

Tutt hired a horse and buggy" and
persuaded Dr. Morgan to accompany
him thither. It was nearly midnight
and the journey of 15 miles was not
so inviting, as the weather was cold
and driizly, but the gentlemen "were
too intent on saving their country to
pay any attention to such a small
matter. They arrived safely at Be-
rea, placed the ballots in the proper
custody, ana startea norae. wtien
opposite Mr. win. Jioulware's Home,
just beyond tho Kingston mill, the
conversation of the two gentlemen
was dtsturbed by the loud crowing of
a rooster near by. '-As if by magic,"
' as Tutt related next evening, '-it
seemed to us that every d rooster
from Berea to Poosey was attending
a convention at Kingston. I slapped
3Iorgan on the knee and told him
we wore beaten. That settled it. I
knew d well the jig was up with us,

A Good One On Major Watts.
Few visitors have been so cordially
welcomed in Richmond as was Major
GeneralGeorge O U'atts, of Alexandria,
La., a native of Richmond, who was
the guest last week of his brother, Mr.
W. W. Watts, at the btter's elegant
home on Lancaster Avenue. All his
old compauions gave him the glad hand
and his stay was very delightful though
brief. He is a good story teller anu

"My 8on,Octo, u o :.ttended Central
University ten yti.rs rgo, is quite as

during Mardi Gras I met a Southern
helle whs, upon hearing my name, said
she had the pleasure of knowing a Mr.
WaUp, Ooto by name, and wished to
know our relation to each other. 1
told her that we were brothers, that I was
the cider. About that time the music
strudk up the Virginia Reel and I asked
for the honor of dancing it with her.
"I am very sorry. Mr. Watts," replied
the blooming beauty "but I have this
dance engaged with your brother, Oeto
"Now I was not to be out done, seeing
that she belieed I was my sou's brother,
so I insisted that Octo was not half
so good a dancer as I and that he would
not be offended with her. My argument
prevailed and just as I placed my
arm about her form up stepped
Octo with a bow and said: M am
so glade to see you, iam, but I have
this dance with Miss !!." 'What
did I do? Well what I did to Octo next
day wrsa plenty. But I afterward met
the girl and we talked over the incident,

It was onr privilege to listen to a
most excellent sermon on Sunday
evening by Rev. Jasper K. Smith, but
the fact that he is one of the most
popular preachers iu town in no wise
affected our estimate of the discourse,
for it was truly grand; grand in its
simplicity, graud in it practicability,
grand in its persuasiveness. That
portion bearing upon the importance
of Christianity rn our business relations,
lias rarely been so forcibly presented
here. And yet all tho theology
to which we church people reverently
subscribe can avail but little if we
cease to practice itiuall the relations
Mr. Smith's discourse suggested
that we can best glorify God at the
times and places where we come in
contact with the world, and not by
restricting the sphere or choosing tho
the time or place of our religious exercise.
As God is everywhere, his
creatures should so order their lives
as to be everywhere and always
Godly. To conduct our business
affairs, excluding God and righteousness
from our dealings, is to preach a
doctrine which we do not practice in
its most esbeutial particular. The
practice of honesty is absolutely essential
to obedience of that commandment
which says: "Thou shalt
not steal." And we must not permit
our commercial relations to set up
a btandard which conflicts with the
Goldeu Rule because there is license
granted by usage and custom to
thrive, to get wealth at any cost, it
docs not and will not excuse us when
tho All Seeing Eye scans the pages
of our ledger and finds that this or
that item of gain was secured by
withholding full measure, giving inferior
goods, or by misrepresentation.
or ot iorin ot deceit ciotnea in
tho raiment of "business sagacity."
And ve should distinguish between
worldly success and failure, not by
the sum total of our gains or losses,
but by the method of achievement.
It should not be a question of "what
wo have," but 'Miow did wo get it."
If honestly, then with what present
satisfaction and future ease can we
lie down at night and know wo have
wronged no one to enrich ourselves.
Rut if dishonestly, there is an eter
nity to which wo shall go and in sorrow
learn that on earth there may be
two or more standards of money, but
in heaven there is but one religious
standard the same in the pew as in
tho pulpit, the same in lhe counting
room as in the cottage, the same in
the shop as in the sabbath school.
It is practical, every day Christianity
which is needed, and not that
spirit of avarice which worships six
days at the feet of Mammon and
only one at the throne of God.
