Warrant Against Prof. Fletcher.
Emma Johnson, a good looking col

day against R. W. Fletcher,- principal
of the colored public school, charging
him with the paternity of her child
which was born several months since.
Fletcher says the move is made and
brought about by some of his enemies,
whom, he claims have been fighting
him for some time and been trying in
every way to annoy and antagonize
him. He has been quite a leader in
local pslitics, and his outspoken man

The theory of advertising is that it
helps business. If the theory is wrong
a business man ought not to spend any
money at any time for advertising. If
the theory be true the time to spend
the most money is when business needs

Itig Tobacco Sales.
A tobacco buyer from Louisville,
named Bryant, made the following
purchases in Garrard within the last
ew days: Three crops off Ed alkers
place, Graves crop 10,000 pounds at 13
cents arotind; another crop of 12,000
pounds at 8 1-2 cents, another crop of
10,000 pounds at 8 cents; Billy Gooch
crop ot I3,uuu pounas at iu cents

pounds at 9 1-4 cents; Wade Walker
crop of 8,000 pounds at 8 l-2c; Bob
West one crop of 6,000 pounds at lCc;
same another crop of 0,000 pounds at 8
cents; John A. Sanders 8,000 pounds at
8 cents. '
Maj. Jas. BarnsiJe, who is the best
posted tobacco man in Central Ken
tucky, tells The Record that the 13
nts paid for the Graves crop is the
best price paid in this county since
Week of Prayer.
The week of prayer was observed at
the Presbyterian church and many
persons attended. The different mm.

interest was manifested. The last

Rev. T. II. Campbell preached. It is

subject of this going to church co
Sunday and being mean and mdolg

He scored "dress parade religion
severely and tpuched up the "Sunday

such hypocrites should be. There is
no class of beings on earth for whom
we have a greater contempt than those
who go to church Sundays with long
faces, bawl out gospel hymns with
the grace of a scrub calf, and then
spend the remaining six drys of the
week trying to beat and run down
other people. Such people have an
overwhelming raajjrity in perdition.

An aggravating error occurei in the

Growing Wheat Crop Sold.
A special from Danville says the
fir-it deal in the growing wheat crop
of 1893 has taken place in Boyle county
between Anderson & Spillman, the
miller--, and Jerry C Caldwell,. one of
the largest farmers of that section,
Mr. Caldwell sold the millers the
wheat on 400 acres of ground at seven
ty-five cents per bushel, to go at
threshing time. This time last year
the growing crops were being pnrchas
ed at from flfty-five to sixty.five cents,
but now the farmers are not so anx
ious to sell at seventy-five.
The Balders Get In Their Work on the
Danville Double Gate.
As stated in last issue of Tins Rec

toll collected. Saturday night a num

and proceeded to chop them into
kindling wood. Gate keener Ball
poked his head out and was in'ormed
by the raiders that if he persisted in
collecting toll ha would be taken out
and thrashed. He could not recog
nize any of them and says there were
probably twenty-fiva in the gang,
.though only three did the work. The
two companies filed affidavits before
the county judge Monday and six
guards were allowed, four for the dou
ble and two for the single gate. The

A Tempest in a Tea Pot.
It was reported on Wednesday that
the County Judge's office was vacant
because Circuit Clerk Hamilton, refus
ed to accept Judge R. A. Burnsides'
bond, on the ground that it was offer
ed too late, the statute requiring it to
be made on the first Monday 'in Janu
ary. The report created quite a sen
sation and the p .rties mentioned and
county attorney Owsley, went to Stan
ford to con'er with Judge Saufley. We
understand that he advised the clerk
to accept the bond if the parties sign
ing it were good, and there was no
question about that. The bond had
been signed several days and the Judge
had neglected to offer it to the clerk.
It is said that Judge Saufley said
that there is a conflict between the
constitution and the law requiring the
bond to be made on the first Monday;
that no one could declare the office
vacant without proper legal proceed
ings, in which the question would be
involved, and that he could hold un
der his old bond until another had
been given. Whether or not we have
been correctly informed pn these opin
ions, be is still county judge and is
likely to remain so unless a vacancy
occurs by death or resignation. All

We do not object to the use of all
proper means to secure an election, by

technicalities. It is true that the
bond should have been 'filed sooner,
but it does not seem that this alone
should disqualify the officer, as, we
learn, the higher courts have decided.
