The store room of the Logan Dry
Goods Co., was crowded Saturday, the
occasion being the grand opening of
spring goods. This up-to-date firm has
bought and put on display an elegant
line of good and they are fresh new
and clean. All the stock is splinter
new, no old goods in the house. The
very latest noveiities in ladies' wear
can be found here, and you can get
them at city prices. Mr. Logon's long
xperience as a traveling min e,oab les
him to get the very latest and at the
lowest prices. The store Saturday was
a scens of beauty, and if you have not
yet done so, go at once and see the

Dr. Kinnaird, of this city, and Mr.
J. E. Carson, of Crab Orchard, have
succeeded in making up the required
amount of stock and will naxt week
begin the erection of a telephone line
from this place to Crab Orchard. The
line will have instruments at Sweeney
Morgan's, Preachersville, Mr. Carson's
and probably other points along the
route. This line is one of the most
badly neeJed and will prove not only
a great benefit to our town but will be
of inestimable valua to our friends
along the route and at Crab Orchard.

had bsen beautifully decorated and
the large lines of handsome and tasty
hats, ribbons eta, were arranged in an
artistic manner which was beautiful
indeed. All day long both stores were
crowded and many purchased their
new head wear for spring. We will
venture the assertion that no milli
nery establishments outside the cities
can surpass those of Lancaster in
keeping up with the styles and giving
reasonable prices. Both of the Lan
caster dealers visit the eastern mar
kets every spring and every fall and
put in a week or so ascertaining
the new ideas and fashions. 1 hey se

Lancaster is to Be Given
First Class Railroad
Trains Direct to Louisville and Cin'ti.
As stated in last issue of The Rec
ord, an engagement was made by the
committee of Lancaster citizens to
meet Mr. Metcalf, general manager of
of the L & N. railroad in Louisville.
Friday night the following persons
went down and held a conference witi.
officials Saturday: B. F. Hudson, cash
ier Citizens' National Bank, S. C Den
ny, assistant cashier National Bank,
J. W. Miller, manager Pilirrimasre Dis
tillery, R. Kinnaird, J. M. Farra and
Louis Lindram. The plan stated in
last issue were explained to the rail
road people, but they could not agree
upon all of it. After discussion they
decided, however, upon a plan which
is far better than the one originally
asked for. They agreed to take the
two night trains now running from
Cincinnati to Livingston, via. Bcrea,
and run them to Stanford instead.
This will make close connection at
Stanford with the night trains both
ways. This is a passenger, express and
mail train, and will pass Lancaster
about two o'clock in the morninsr.
reaching Cincinnati about seven. Re
turning, this train will lcve Cincin
nati at 7:33 in the evening, pass Lan
caster about midnight and connect
with the Stanford trains (both north
and south) giving c'ose connection to
and from Louisville and Knoxville. A
stated above, these trains will carry
the mail and will give us mail sen:
from both Louisville and Cincinnati
the niht before, at 7 o'clock the next
morning (7 o'clock is the time for open
ing the Lancaster post office.)
In addition to the above change, the
officials will reverse the present da3
train and it will come from Richmond,
passing Lancaster about 11 o'clock a,
m. , making connection with Louis
ville trains at Stanford and returning
after arrival of Louisville train, pass
ing Lancaster about two or three
o'clock. This change will put Cincin
nati, freight here four hours earlier,
and give us a splendid express service,
beside putting Louisville fre:ght here
several hours earlier. It will put thi
evening mail about one hour earlier,
and give until eleven o'clock in th
morning to send out our mail, instead
of ten, as at present. One objection
to reversing the day train was that
one engine might not be abie to pull
out the freight and stock. The eagini
now in use is a small, six drive-wheel,
but by putting on a regular, eight
wheel engine all can be pulled easily.
This change will be a great advantage-
to stock men, as it takes out stock all
the year around at 3 o'clock in the
evening, reaching Cincinnati early
next morning. The track of this
branch is in good shape, only needing
some ballast to make it first-class. The
night trains carry Pullman sleepers,
and parties going to Cincinnati, Knox
ville and Louisville can take a berth
and enjoy a good rest all the way. As
stated above, we will have direct con
nection with both Louisville and Cin
cinnatL Oae can leave here in the
night and be in either city at 7:30 the
next morning, have all day to attend
to business and leave the city at 7:30
the same evening.
This change has so many advanta
ges that we have not the space to give
them, but, when established, our peo
ple will wonder how we ever did with
out it. The change will be made the
first of next month, as the company
will then inaugurate its spring sched
Oar people are delighted with the
idea of being given first-class railroad
accommodations, and it really sounds
too good to be true. Mr. Metcalfe is
an exceedingly pleasant gentleman,
and received the committee in his pri
vate office and talked the matter over
deliberately. He said he had been
studying for twenty years on, how
to give the good people of Rich
mond and Lancaster first-class accom
modations, and now believed he had
hit upon the plan. He has certainly
done so, not only for Richmond and
Lancaster, but Stanford also. The
latter folks are compelled to go to
Junction City and wait several hours
for a Cincinnati train, and new they
get a first-class, fast train right from
their front door. A for Richmond,
she gets the same advantage we do in
regard to Louisville travel (she has al
ready first-class Cincinnati trains). At
present our Richmond friends go to
Louisville via. Winchester, or over
the R. N. L & B., which takes all day.
Under the new arrangement they can
go through in day time, or take a train
at midnight and be in Louisville at 7
a. m. We could fill every column o.
Tuk Rbcobd with advantages this
change will give the people on the
line from R'chmond to Stanford, bat
will let them wait 'till the first of
next month when these things will
