Death of Mrs. Johnston,
The communit was greatly shoe'e-
ed Wednesday to learn of the sudden
death of Mrs. Jane Johnston, wife of
Mr. T. M. Jonston. She had been in
lirly good health for the past few
years and her sudden illness was quite
a surprise. Mrs. Johnston belonged to
one of the most widely-known fami:
iis in the county and was beloved by
all. She was a consistent member of
the Christian church and took a prom-
nent part in every movement for the
church and good of the community.
She leaves beside her husband, five
children. They are W. McC Johnston,
Mrs. Belle Burnside, Mrs. Patterson,
Miss Nell and John. The funeral will
take place.at the Christian church this
(Thursday) afternoon at four o'clock.
Eld. George Gowcn will conduct the
services and the interment will take
place at the Lancaster Cemetery.
Saturday morning, at an early hour,
Mrs. Marinda Herring, wife of Mr,
Bright Herring, died suddenly at the
family residenca on the Danville pike.
She had been in apparent good health
all day, and ate a hearty supper be
fore retiring. During the night Mr.
Herring noticed her peculiar breath'
ing and went to her bedside. Before
his mother arrived in the room Mrs.
Herring had breathed her last No
woman bore a better reputation-lor
kindness and charity than did Mrs.
Herring. She was a true Christian in
every sense of the word, and by her
many acts of kindness endeared her
self to every one who knew her. In
his sad bereavement the heart-broken
husband has the sympathy of a large
circle of friends. After services at the
grave, by Elder Gowen, the remains
were interred in the Lancaster Ceme

Since tli3 change in the running of
the trains our people are greatly an
noyed and inconvenienced from the
fact that no mail is put off here from
the night trains. Mr. West, the post
master, has. written to headquarters
stating the case and if a change is not
made right away some one will go to
Cincinnati and lay the matter before
the post ofll-e authorities. The people
do not want this mail opened at night,
but it can be nut off and kent at the
depot until the regular time for opan
ng the office in the morning. It is
said that no one miets the night trains,
but it does seem that in a town of this
size that a matter as important as this
should not be overlooked. As matters
now are, our Louisville and other
morning mail from the south is taken
to Richmond and brought back at 11
10. '1 here is absolutely no excuse for
this delay, and if the trouble is not
remedied our people will make a kick
which will hurt whoever- happens to
be in the way.

Showed Up Well.
The fact that only four of the Lan-
cascer boys failed to pass the rig
id examination at Lexington speaks
well for the health of our men. Some
f the other companies had as high as
weaty men thrown out and had trou
ble in gett'ng enough to be sworn in.

Mr. Tyree II. West died at his home
near Pleasant Hill School house, this
county, Tuesday last. Mr. West had
been a resident of Garrard county all
his life and no one stjod higher in the
estimation of the pople generally
than did he. He was a member of the
Christian church and was considered
one of the cleverest men in the county.
He was always ready to help a friend
and a liberal contributor to charitable
objects. He was blessed with good
health' nearly all his life and was in
77 years old Funeral services were
held at his late residence Wednesday
afternoon, conducted by Eld. George
Gowen, and the remains interred in
the Lancaster Cemetery.
The New Trains.
The much desired train sarvice went
into effect Sunday. The old day train
has been reversed and now comes from
Richmond in the forenoon, passing
Lancaster at 11:25 making close con
nection at Stanford with the Louis
ville and Knoxville trains. This train
comes back from Stanford at 4:35 in
the afternoon. It remains a mixed
train, but makes much better time
than of old.
The passenger trains run at night,
but furnish excellent means of travel.
It passes here at 12:29 going to Louis
ville, putting you in that city at 7:30
a. m. Going to Cin'ti it passes Lacas
ter at 2:52 a. m., arriving in that city
about 7:30. On this train yon make
connection at Paris for Lexington both
coming and going. These trains are
first-class passengers and carry both
man ana express.
JNow that this great beneut has been
secured for the town, we sincerely
hope that the Ioafinr element, Which

this city Wednesday afternoon. The
district is made up of the counties
composing this congressional district.
A large number of delegates are pres

night, we will not publish the list un
til next issue, at which time we will
also give a detailed account of the en

in this .issue. At this meeting Mrs.
Patterson gave an outline of the pro
gram and Mrs. Robert Elkin delivered
the address of welcome. Mrs. Elkin's
talk was one of the best we ever
heard. It was out of the old cut and
dried ordjr and full of common sense.
Last night the children of Miss Mur

ter which Mrs. Bdatrchamp delivered
an excellent address to a large and
appreciative audience in the Presby

of the hour we will defer further re

Gold Medal Content.
The first grand gold medal contest
ever held in the state took place at the
Court House Tuesday evening. These
contests are under the supervision of
the W. C. T. U., and are divided into
several clashes. First comes the silver
medal contest, then one for a gold
medal in each district and now the
grand, or state, contest. We under
stand there is still another called the
diamond. The one held Tuesday eve
ning was for speakers who had won
gold medals. Sjven young ladies took
part They were Misses Ida Tyree,
Pittsburg, Fannie McClure, Mt Ver
non, Fairchild, Iterea, Alberta
Anderson, Lancaster, Elene Iliatt, 111
attsville, Mamie Jones, Annie Thomp
son, Mt. Vernon. Persons who arc
competent to judge such matters, tell
us they have never witnessed a better
contest nor one in which thosg partic
ipating were more evenly matched.
Each young lady spoke in a clear, dis
tinct and strong voice, and their ges
ticulation was perfect Lack of sjae
prevents giving a detailed description
of each, but we will say that it must
have been a dificult task to pick tha
winner, so well did each young lady
carry out her part The judges were
Rev's Henry Faulconer, T. IL Camp
bell and C H. Clark, who decide I to
give the medal to Miss Alberta Ander
son, of this city.
