Old Time Custom.
Dr. J. L. McKee said he would revive
the old-time custom of making pastor
al visits, and would call upon every
member of the church during his en
gagement in Lancaster. He said this
practice had been abandoned to a very
large degree, but he believed it one of
the most important and fruitful duties
of a preacher.

he weather was miserable Monday
but a big crowd came in. The merch
ants report the best day they have had
or many months, though trading in
"stoc'.c was unusually dull. A few cat
tie were on the market, some of which
changed hands, as will be seen in our
stock column. The street fakir was
absent, the old, blind negro failed to
appear on the corner, and, tauen as a
whole, the day was remarkably quiet.

Later The court has taken th
necessary preliminary steps and will

Wilt Issue I'oiuU.
The Fiscal Court met again Satur-
lay and resumed its deliberations over
the bond question. It was agreed to
issue 33,000 worth o bonds, bearing
4 per cent, interest payable semi-an
nuaily. Five thousand dollars is to be
paid at en 1 of fi.-st five years and the
bonds taken up at rate of one thous
and dollars a year until the thirtieth
year, at which time four thousand will
be paid. The court appointed Judge
Burnside and Messrs. W. H. Kinnaird
and B. F. Hudson to negotiate the
sale. The bonds will be advertised in
several eastern papers, and, as the
county is free from debt and in splen
did shape, they will, beyond all doubt,
bring a handsome premium. Sealed
bids will be asked and they are to be
opened December 19th, 1893.
To Our Subscribers.
Several recent issues of The Record
have been exceedingly dim, and badly
printed, and for this we humbly beg
your indulgence. We have bought
several hundred pounds of new body
type, and hope to send you a paper
next time which can be read at a dis
tance of five hundred yards. New at
tachments for our news press have
also been ordered, and, when put in
running order, we will be prepared to
send out a paper second to none in the
state. We would have made these
improvements sooner, but printer's
material costs much money, and the
aforesaid "much money" was not at
our command. We took this office
whan it was worn almost to a frazzle,
an 1, although we had no surplus mon
ey, we have, by rigid economy, gotten
it in first-class shape mechanically.
Baring accidents, the next issue will
be printed as clean as a new pin.
One of the most terrible deaths that
ever occurred in Garrard county, was
that of Mrs. Anna Welch Farley, wife
of Mr. Wes. Farley, of Bryantsyille.
Friday afternoon, about 3 o'clock,Mrs.
Farley was rendering lard out in the
yard. She turned her back to the fire
and a brisk wind blew the flames so
close that her dress was ignited. The
flames quickly enveloped her, and she
ran about screaming for help. Mr.
Farley was attracted by his wife's
cries and ran to her rescue. He fought
the flames desperately, but did not
succeed in extinguishing them until
the woman was prostrate and had re
ceived her death wounds. She linger
ed in agonizing pain for several hours
before death, relieved the suffering.
Mr. Farley was badly burned while
.fighting the flames.
Mrs. Farley was a daughter of Mrs
Sallie Welch, and belonged to one o
the best families in the county. She
was 29 years old and leaves 'our chil
dren two boys and two girls the
oldest about ten years of age. She
was a member of the Methodist church
and a lovely, christian lady. There
in tins were interred at Danville Sat
