Sarah Adeline alkcr was born at
Lancaster, Ky., more, than three
score and ten years ago, and died at
Lexington, Ky. at noonday on October
2D. 1893. Her father was William;
Walker, and her mother, Sarah W
Lapsley. The earlier years of hei
girlhood were spent in Tennessee. Up
on the death of her parents, she return
vd to Lancaster, in May 1847, accorupa
nied by her only sister, Miss Katt
Walker, who was never separated from
her till death severed the tie. In
November 1848 she was married to
William Jennings Landram, who had
recently returned from the Mexican
War, and who afterwards served in
the Civil War, retiring with the rank
of Brigadier-Geaeral, and dying at
Lancaster, October 11, 1893. Of this
union were born ten children: Martha,
who died aged one month; Mary, now
Mrs. Richard A. Burnside, of Lancas
ter: William Walker, who died in the
prime of manhood; Addie, Mrs. Wil
1 am C. McFurland, U. S. A; Sallie L -
gan, who diea at me age oi nve years;
Ella Burdet, Mrs. Woodford G. Dun-
lap, or L?xington; Greenfield Ransou
kyho died aged one year; Katie, Mrs.
Charles McGugin, of Howard, Indiana
and Louis, the editor of the Cen'thal
IIecokd. Twelve grand-children also
Her remains were taken to Lmcas-
er to be interred in the family lot at
the cemetery- The services were con
ucted by Rev. W. O Goodloe, assist-
:d by Eld. George Gowea and Rev. T.
11. Campbell. 1 lie pall-bearers were
.V. II. Wherritt, W. H. Kmnaird, H. A.
!. Mar.tsbury, D. M. Lackey, Dr. J.
.V. Grant and T. W. Reid.
Many offerings of rare and .'rarant
flowers attested the love and friend
ship of the surv.vors. Sacred words
ind tender songs were offered above
Mrs. Landram was early identlfi d
vith the brave little city on the hill
side and her ambitious, self-respect
ing citizenship. Here were bora men
vho distinguished themselves in the
irmy, the navy, the state, and the
earned professions. Here the house
vives were accomplished in the duties
and graces of domestic life, diligent
factors in the probity and prosperity
f a God-fearing community.
The decased was strongly attached
-o her home, her husband and her!
children. To her church she broughtj
.he faith of the Huguenots that had
been rooted and grounded in her heart
oy generations of ancestors. Her!
tastes were simple, and her manners
unassuming. Her mind was stored
vith the best literature of her times,
ind to the last, the thoughts of great
writers, and the acts of our national
aerces elicited her attention. Though
the vicissitudes of li e had cast theirj
shadow, yet there ever came at her
call a keen sense of the humorous.
Women and men a e largely the prtd-j
act of environment. The wife and
mother bound to the ever-revolving
wheel of the domestic arena, and barr
ed from the diverting avenues of the
progressive woman of today, roust
needs possess an exhaustless fund o.
reserve force to rightly balance the.
law of compensation.
An active brain, a sensitive spirit,
and an all-absorbing demand' upon her
nome circle for the reciprocity of a de
voted nature, taking irresistibly the
deeper tinge from the sorrows com-.
nun to mankind, reacted upon an en
feebled frame and intensified the
gloom. That she was a firm, unshrink
ing christian was shown in her calm
passing into the great beyond. Not a
wave of trouble rolled across her
peaceful breast. She talked to each
beloved one in words that can never be
forgotten. To a friend she spoke more
than once of blest visions of her dear
jnes gone before. Ihese came to her
and sat beside her' and talkod with
her. Of her comfortable surround-
the city, yet not of it; far
away from its noise and dust and con
fusion, with green trees In, sight and
weet fields at hand, and kind hearts
to minister to her, she talked in grate
ful words, and said to the listener:
'Wont jTou writ this for me when 1
am gone?" Her mind was so cleai
rfiat even as the last faint sigh was
leard, a tender word escaped her lips
During those last days (and thev
were less than a week) she remember
ed countless events and happenings

Rev. Peter Vinegar.
Rev. Peter Vinegar, a colored preach
er with quite a wide reputation, deliv
ered several sermons at the Court
House last week, closing Sundayiight.
His first subject, "A Damned Hot
Day" drew quite a crowd. We could
learn nothing from those who heard
it, as to Bra Vinegar's application of
the ratLe. peculiar subject except that
those who go through li. e disregard
ing God'd Word would find exceeding
ly warm weather in the placJ prepar
ed for sinners. One o. hii other sub
jects was "13 Footmen Walking Down

Ihe boys of the Second Kentucky
are certainly a devil-ridden set of fel

Tuesday week, and every man able to
do so was on hand prompt'y. They
found to their amazement, that no
provision whatever had been made for
their coming, and they were turned
loose to roam about the city and root
hog or die. Some succeeded in getting
into hotels and boarding houses, bi t
we saw a great many wandering a m
lessly about the streets with no over
coats, blankets or money with whch
to get a meal. It was Wednesday be
fore they secured tents and these had
no flooring. No one seemel to know
