When the good ladies sent the box
to our soldier boys at Chickamauga,
the express company simply wiped
them oft the earth, so to speak, with
the enormous charges made. It has
been very wisely suggested that in
stead of sending such heavy boxes,
that each parcel be wrapped in heavy
paper, or pasteboard, and then placed
in one woo lea box. This will save
much to the individual shipper and be
a long ways safer.

For some unaccountable reason, the
mail is not now thrown off Saturday
night's train. Postmaster West tells
The Recoud he does not know why,
unless its because sufficient demand
has never been made for the mail.
Nine-tenths of the patrons of the Lan
caster office want this mail and it
should be put ofF. Because three or
four would-be moguls don't want Sun
day mail is no reason why the majori
ty should be kept out of thair's.

Our infcraiation is that the present
wheat crop is more or less infected
with smut What causes smut? will
the question asked so often bat no
satisfactory answer. The important
thing now, the bast rasthod of hand
ling smutty wheat First, harvest it
when "dead ripe' and thresh from
shock or stack it when perfectly dry.
In stacking wheat contaminated
with smut, will suggest sprinkling of
fine lime every two or three rounds, it
will answer three purposes: 1st, will
prevent weevil; 2nd, will destroy smut
smell; 3rd, have a tendency to dry or
harden the smut bill.
For convenience u e a burlap sack.
put a peck or half bushel fine lime in
t by striking it on the wheat,' the lime
will sift out in sufficient quantity.
This takes but little time but will save
you mouey and probably make your
wheat meicluutable. In stacking
wheat where there is no smut, sprin
kle salt everj' two or three rounds in
stacking.it is a sure preventive of wee
vil and leaves the straw rick in fine
ccnlition for cattle but, under no cir
cumstances use salt where there is
smut, as the tendency .of salt to mois
ture would be detrimental to smuttj
wheat We are pleased to announce to our
friends and customers we are in the
wheat trade and request that you re
member us before selling. We prom
ise as heretofore in our dealings, top
prices, aud will be consistent in prices
and will be governed daily by the
markets for lesitimate business.

At the conclusion cf Col. Bain's

'I sincerely thank the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union for this

should -be instrumental in saving the

am more than repaid."

The Blue Grass Grocery Co., has
rented of Mrs X. A. Thompson her
iargd store room on Richmond street,
and about next Wednesday will put
in a complete line of Groceries- Tin
ware etc. This will be the fi 'ty-fourth
store the company has in Kentucky,
Ohio and Indiana. They began this
business about four year ago, and it
is now no experiment, but an estab
lished fact. They bay goods by the
car load and thus get greatly reduced
figures. Their sole aim is to please
thier customers and give them the best
goods for the least money. The Lan
caster store will bo managed by Eph.
Ituckcye Fishing Cliili.
Oae of those fortunate enough to at
tend tells The Recoi-.d that the '"big
gest" time he ever had was with the
Buckeye Fishing Club last week. This
club meets every year, and what they
do not have to tempt the appetite is
not worth having. Wednesday was
ladies' day, about one hundred people
being present. To use our inform
ant's language, "they put the big pot
into the little one." The Great Crea
tor never made better people than
those living in Buckeye, and nothing
affords them more pleasure than to do
something whereby they will add to
the happiness of friends.
Death of Kd Sparks.
Lancaster friends were greatly
pained on learning of the death of Ed
win Sparks, which cccured at Nich-
olasville Sunday night Mr. Sparks
was a nephew of Mrs. Margaret Marrs,
of this city, and was a frequent visi
tor to our town. In early life he spent
much time here 'and was a general
'a vorite among the young, people. lie
has been connected with the firm of
Cogar & Co., at Danville for some
time, and resided there until a few-
weeks ago, when broken health for
ced him to return to his former home
in Nicholasville. It would be diffi
cult to find a more congenial and clever-hearted
boy than was Ed Sparks.
To know him was to be fond of him.
Although only twenty-nine years of
age, he had been engaged in business
for quite a while and enjoyed a Jrepu-
tation for splendid qualification, strict
honesty and fair dealings. lie was
married about eight years ago to Miss
Eunice Hamilton, a lovely and accom
plished Nicholasville girl, who, with
sweet little daughter, is left to
mourn his loss. Lancaster friends ex

Rev. Sam Jones has been engaged
to appear at High Bridge on July 3rd.
As this great man's time is engaged
for a long time ahead, it is doubtful
if the people of Central Kentu.-ky will
have another opportunity of hearing
him soon. T.ie High Bridge Camp
Ground, or the Palisades, is now con
ducted on a highly moral plane, and is
the ideal spot to go to for rest, recre
ation and picasure. No rough charac
ters are permitted near the grounds,
aud thoac attending aro assured a
pleasant and profitable trip. Mrs.
Emma P.uford Bristow has absolute
control of the grounds and meeting.
It is hoped many of her old Lancaster
friends and acquaintances will attend.
A Merited Coiiifliiuent.
Many teachers who attended the ex
amination, spoke in the highest terms
of Miss Elisa Lusk, the superintend
ent. One lady told a Rkcoi:i repre
sentative that she had attended exan.
inations under the last four supcrii -tendents,
by two in Indiana, and also
stood the state examinations, but none
had been as systematic or as carefully
conducted as was the one recently
held by Miss Lusk. And here The
Rkcokd desires to say that it has nev
er been more courteously treated by
any ofiicer than it has by Miss Lusk.
When some people are given an office
they immediately think the newspa
pers, and the public too, have no right
to ask for information, but the pres
ent superintendent is free from any
such fool ideas.
Marriage or "Old Phil."
Capt. Phil B. Thompson and Mrs.
Allie W. Davis were united in mar
riage at the bride's home in Harrods
burg, last week. The ceremony was
performed by President John Aug.
Williams, the parlor being well filled
with relatives of the bride, and close
friends of both parties. Tho groom,
who is seventy-seven years of ag?,
dressed in the conventional broad
cloth suit, looked much younger, and
the bride, who is just forty, and a fino
looking lady, looked very attractive
in a blue tailor-made traveling cost
ume with hat to match. After being
showered vith the congratulations of
those present the couple took a landau
for Burgin and went thence to Cincin
nati for a brief honeymoon. Captam
Thompson is one of the foremost law
yers in the state. lie is a Mexican
and Confederate veteran, and among
those who witnessed the happy event
yesterday were three of his old wur
comrades, Messrs. T. B. Phelps, J. C
Robinson and Edwin Glave, who start
ed from New Orleans to Mexico in
Capt Thompson's company just fifty
two years ago yesterday, the day of
bis marriage. Harrodsbur Democrat.
