Lieutenant John M. F.irra, of the
Lancaster company, now at Ch'cka

Advocate of the Second Regiment.
This position is one of prominence,
and John will have many questions of
importance brought before him. Col.
Gaithcr is a man who appreciates apt
ness and hustle in a man, and we
would not be surprised at his landing
Farra in some still more prominent po
sition ere the war is over.
Itev. C.M.KIed Married
Rev. Chas.M.Ried was married Wed
nesday to Miss Annie Kellcj', of Colo
rado City, Colorado. The groom has
been preaching in that city for some
time and has quite a good situation.
He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. T. W.
Rit'd, of this city. lie has been i j the
Baptist ministry for a number of vear,
and is a preacher o: much ability. On
behalf of many Lancaster friends Tiik

Semi one told a number of Lancas
ter darkies that the Government did
not want any of their race in this war,
and immediately several got very pat
riotic. J; or the benefit of these colored
men we will say there are several
recruiting ofiicers now at work in
Kentucky and want all the able-bo-
died-colored men they can get. Lieut
Johnston,, of the V. S. Array, is at
Richmond this week and, if those de
siring to fight, bleed and die will only
notify him, he will gladly come to
Lancaster, examine and swear the
men here and then pay their way to
Andrew Jl, Pope.
Andrew R. Pope died at his home in
Boyle county Sunday evening, in the
01st year of his age. Mr. Pope was
widely connected in Garrard county.
The Advocate says he was born and
reared in Boyle county. In our late
war he was a member of Captain R. D
Logan's company, of Col. J. W. Grigs
by's regiment of cavalry, and was
wounded in a fight at Milton, Tenn.,
a Minnie ball entering his wrist and
coming out at the elbow. He was a
Royal Arch Mason and exceedingly
fond of the order. The funeral servi
ces were held at New Provi lence Tues
day afternoon at three o'clock, burial
in Bellevue cemetery.
The Democratic Convention.
A very large crowd attended the
Democratic Convention Saturday af
ternoon. It met at 2 o'clock, and
county chairman, George T. Farris,
presided. Nothing outside the usual
convention routine was done until the
instructions were readied. It was
the will of the convention to give the
Lxote of Garrard to Mort Rothwell, but
the rub came when the question of a
second choice was reached. Mr. Roth
well wanted the delegation to go in
structed for him. with no second
clause tacked on, but some of the Mc-
Creary men objected and some little
discussion was had. Mr. Rothwell
finally withdrew his name altogether
and the delegation went instucted to
vote for McCreary first, Jast and all
the time. G. Bright Swincbroad was
secretary of the convention and CoL
Jolyi W. Miller chairman of com
mittee on resolutions. Luke Sherrow
and Louie Leavell, two former repub
licans, created much enthusiasm in
the convention by "shaking the scales
from, their eyes" and coming out full
fledged democrats. A vote of thanks
was given Senator Farris for the able
manner in which he represented his
district in the last legislature.

hope Capt. Phil Price, Engineer Hen

A Great Context.

Judge Bnrnside tells The Record
that the thirty days time, for which
two guards were appointed at the
double gate on Richmond pike having
expired, a representative of the road,
together with a lawyer came in and
wanted the guards retained. The
ju lge said that in order to retain the
guards, an alii lavit would have to be
filed stating that t'ie p -operty was in
danger of being destroyed, etc. The
parties then left Burnside's office and
went to Stanford to see Ju lge Saullej-,
upon learning of which, Burnside also
went to see the circuit judge. The
latter said he would hear all partiis
interested and set today for them to
come back b?forc him.
Advises to Hold.
Mr. T. J. Smith, Sr., in an interview
with a Richmond Register report r
recommended that all farmers be ad
vised not to sell their wheat for 00 and
05 cents, as the price is bound to ad
vance. He says there has been a short
crop in California and other parts tf
the West and that, by September, the
market will be at least 25 cents higher
on the bushel. He says that farmers
who haven't the necessary storage
room, instead of Eelling at the low
price now oifered, should haul their
grain to town, where they can get
storage for it at l-2c a bushel per
month. lie thinks that if this advice
is followed Madison county will be at
least $25,000 better off financially at
the close of the year, as this amount
will be kept at home instead of going
into the hands of speculators.
S. B. White, of Richmond, purchas
ed of J. S. Collins one pair heavy mules
for 5275, to be used in his coal busi
ness, wh'ch he will open up in a few

of Richmond, and other gentlemen,
who have "axes to grind."
The committee on resolutions was
the first to report, reaffirming allegi
ance to the Chicago platform. Sec. The
committee on credentials then report
ed, seating all delegations, the com
mittee on organization suggested the
permanency of the temporary organi
zation, and recommended that the
Convention be governed by the laws
of the last general assembly, in so far
as they are applicable. They reserved
their report as to the dropping of the
hindmost man until such time as the
Convention should demand it. Qhe
secretary was then directed to call the
roll of counties for candidates. Jes
samine was the first, and Mr. J. Wil
lard Mitchell oifered the name of Hon.
