Good for the Council
As mentioned elsewhere in The
Rkcohii, the Council is working hard
to secure bjtter sidewalks for the
town. This exhibition of push and
hustle on the part of that body is com
mendable and we do hope that they
will not weary in well-doing but push
to completion the undertaking.
A number of the colored teachers
and others, under direction of Prof.

people as colored ones present, and all

All members of the G. A. R. are
earnestly requested to be present at
the meeting Saturday week, the 18th,

rangements for attending the meeting

to the Cincinnati meeting must sore-
port at this time, as we must know ex
actly how many men to make arrange
ments for. Jas. Dillon, Committee.
Always the Case.
It is singular, but nevertheless true,
that when a man stops taking a news
paper he immediately sneaks around
to borrow a copy to read. We know
of several instances where parties
would become very wroth, and to oth
er parties run a paper down, and im
mediately borrow a copy to read. In
some cases they have the gall to ask
the postmaster to see a copy in the oT
fice directed to subscribers.
Colored Teachers Institute.
The Garrarl County Colored Teach
ers Institute met in the Court House
Monday morning at 10 o'clock. There
ure about fifty teachers present and
the sessions have been very interesting

institute is onducted by Prof. W. D.
Thomas, of Frankfort Prof. Thomas
has a fine education,-is a good speaker
and, the teachers say his talkaJand ex

to a close this morning.

Civil Service Examination.
W. H. Miller, secretary, writes us to
announce that an examination will be
held in Danville on some date between
October 1st and 15th for applicants for
positions in the Internal Revenue
Service. The secretary will furnish
necessary blanks upon application and
they must be filed by Sept 1st. Write
him for further information.
Jake. Swartfe and the 3Iule.
Messrs. Jake Joseph and Ed Bishop,
went up in the country Sunday to see
some friends and get a big dinner
(principally the dinner). Oa the way
back their horse took sick and for a
time it looked as if the two men would
be compelled to walk off all the flesh
gaiuel by the dinner in hoofing it back
to town. They put their heads togeth
er and came to the conclusion thvy
were in for it "By and by an Esquire
passed along" and Swartz toy their
troubles. A mule was procured an
the trio hit the town at midnight
about as hungry as when they started
out The friend who loaned the mule
was Olie Terrill. and Swartz says he is
the cleverest fellow in the world.
On Wednesday at high noon, at the
Clemens House in Danville, Mr. Todd
Scott, of Nicholasville, and Miss Alice
Rout, of Marksbury, were united in
marriage, Rev. J. W. Lynch pronounc
ing the ceremony in his usually im
pressive manner. Immediately after
the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Scjtt left
for a bridal tour to Cincinnati and will
also visit Mrs. Keen, sister of the
groom, at Shelbyville, .before return"
ing home. The wedding was a quiet
affair and also a very great surprise to
the many frienas of Miss Alice who
thought her very unwilling to re
nounce her life of single blessedness.
Many good wishes attend them in
their j mrney and may their lines be
cast in pleasant places.
Good for Garrard.
The Louisville daily papers tell o
the opening in that city of sealed pro
posals to construct Lock No. 8, oa the
Kentucky river. The lowest bid was
that of Thomas Sheridin, of West Vir
ginia, who agrees to do the work for
183,000. The article says all the bid'
have been sent to Washington for
final approval, and it is thought that
work will be commenced this summer.
It further says the Lock will be con
structed twenty-two miles above High
Bridge, four miles above Hickman,
fourteen miles below Valley View. The
dam will be on the Jessamine county
aide of the river and the abutment on
the Garrard county side. The con
struction of the new lock is to make
slackwater for Kentucky river packets

Fred Kahler Dead.
The many Lancaster friends of Mr.
Fred Kaehlcr were shocked to hear of
his death Wednesday morning. He
had been quite ill of typhoil fever for
a few weeks, but no one thought he
was so near death's door. Mr. Kahler
was probably thirty-five years of age.
and had been a man of remarkably
good health. He was one of the most
prominent citizens in the upper end
of tho county, where he had resided
and been engaged in business for a
number of years. Fred Kahler wasa
friend that was worth having. He
was always ready to help anyone in
need and it looked like it was his
g.-eatcst enjoyment when doing a favor
for one. He was an enthusiastic mem
ber of the Knights of Pythias and a
regular attendant at its meetings. The
funeral services were held at the Paint
Lie!: ohurch Wednesday afternoon at
two o'clock, conducted by Rev. Craw
ford. The Knights of Pythias then
took charge of the remains and,-atvthe
conclusion of their: beautiful ceremon
ies, interred the body in Paint Lick
cemetery. He leaves a wife and one
small child to mourn his loss.
There are a number of people who

Letter from AVI 11 Dunlap.
Santiago de Cuba, July 1793.
My Dearest Mother:
I suppose you think I am
dead, or something worse. Instead I
am alive and in good health at pres
ent, although I have been in the hos
pital four days lately with a fever
something like malaria. Everyone in
camp has had a touch of it One in my
Troop died with it yesterday. I hav
been printing tablets for soldiers'
graves since the big battles. Since the
big fight I have been trying to get pa
per and envelope to write to you, but
could not get any, so will write on
this scrap, fold it up and try and get
After this, excuse me from war. It's
something horrible, and dead and dy-
all around. That first day (July 1),
well ever be remembered by me. Our
regiment distinguished themselves
together with the 3rd, 9th and 10th
Cavalry, 13th and 10th Infantry, and
Roosevelt's Rough Riders, we charged
the hill we now occupy, the principal
point of vantage. Gen. Miles thanked
us personally. The total killed and
wounded Americans 2,002; Spanish
about 5,030. My troop of fifty lost two
killed and five wounded. The Spanish
formerly surrendered today and we
have Santiago, the American flag go
ing over it today.
We expect to come back to the Uni
ted States in a few days, but don't
know for sure. No Yellow Jack yet
Hobson and his men were released and
came by us the other day. I shook
hands with two of them. Love to all.
Your Son, Will.
The letter is written on a piece of
waste paper and was fastened togeth
er with pins. In one corner was writ
ten "Soldier's Letter" and no stamp
was necesary. Will has many friends
here who are heartily glad to know of
his good health.
The City Council has recently passed
a very wise ordinance regulating the
laying of sidewalks in and about town.
The conditions of the sidewalks in
Lancaster is a disgrace to any towr.
On many of the prominent streets
planks hive been put down as a make
shift for a brick walk. In a short time
they become pulled up and broken
fall of holes, naili stick up in them
and water stmds on them in paddles,
making walking on them a dreaded
task, la some places no walks exist
whatever, yon take the mnJ. It is the
wish of the Council to correct this and
having this in view; had w members
go about town and examine and locate
the flaees where walks are needed and
make thair report to the regal ar eonn-
the people better walks as well as im
prove the looks of the otherwise pret
ty streets. There is no disposition to
burden anyone with unnecessary ex
pense but we must have sidewalks of
some kind and itis far better and
cheaper to put down a lasting walk of '
stone curbing and brick filling rather
than a cheap, unsatisfactory wooden
affair always out of repair. Of course
there are those who oppose- this upon
the grounds of expense. Property
owners who oppose good walks should
pause to think that aflped walk in
iruiu ui wieir piaci'S iiuus just bo mucii
to the looks and value. They should
consider the fact that no property is
maintained without expense; that if
neglected and permitted to fall into
decay it looses proportionality in value.
Another important fact should not
be lost sight of: On many streets soma
have plank walks or none at all, while
others liava good brick walks for all
to walk on and enjoy. Is it altogether
fair that this should be permitted? If
your neighbor supplies you with a
good, safe pavement to walk on should
you not do likewise? The sidewalk
question is not open to argument; we
only print this article to point out the
necessity of having them. We aro re
liably informed that it is the intention
to enforce this ordinance to the letter,
peaceably and pleasantly if possible,
through the courts if necessary, treat
ing all alike. From time to time it
shall be cur pleasure to note the prog
ress of the improvement
