Many of our citizens went to Dan

points about the cultivation of this
crop by casting their eyes westward as
they go out the Keene pike. Jessa
The commencement exercises of the
Graded School will be held in the
Presbyterian church next Wednesday
morning at 10 o'clock. There are four
graduates, MissesOliviaSwc eney, Mary
Burnside, Maybelle Royston and Mr.
James Anderson. The public is cor
dially invited to attend the exercises
and the building will doubtless be tax
ed to hold the crowd.
The Monument recently placed in
the Landram lot of the Cemetery
here, was erected by Mrs. William C.
McFarland to the memory of her fa
ther and mother. It was the desire
of both Mrs. McFarland and her hus
band that the monument should be of
Scotch Granite, but Gen. Landram of
ten expressed a preference for white
marble and his wishes were consider
ed in the selection made.
Special revival services began at the
Christian church on Monday night.
The pastor, Eld. C. E. Powell, is as
sisted by Eld. E. L. Powell, an elo
quent minister of Louisville. Large
crowds are attending, much interest
is manifested and a rich harvest of
souls is expected. The meetings will
likely continue two weeks, and an in
vitation is extended to everybody to
attend, regardless of condition in life
or religious faith. The object is to do
good for all classes of people.
Hope They'll Come Here.
Kentucky boys will start in next
winter with empty pocketbooks.
Wallace's, Forepawh's and Ringling
Bros, circuses will all visit the state this
season, to say nothing of four or five
smaller tented aggregations that are
already headed this way. The largest
dog show in the business is already in
the state for a month's tour, and
Buffalo Bill's Wild West will visit
most of the larger towns. What a
feast for young America and his no
less interested grown-up others. Ex
Elder C.E. Powell delivered a strong
sermon, at his church, on Sunday, on
the importance of contributing to
missionary work. He said that $200
must go from that church if he had to
pay most of it himself. After the ser
mon 8176 was contributed and the
other 924 was raised afterward. This
speaks well for that church, and we
s lould like to know If there is a single
churchjin a town the size of Lancas
ter, In Kentucky, that did as well for
the missionary cause.
Are There Any In Lancaster!
The man who says he doesn't believe
in advertising and refuses to use the
newspapers for that purpose generally
advertises in some other way. notel
registers, theater programs and such
things are likely to have his ad in them
Then he cl a ges what he pays for space
in them to advertising instead of to
charity or to profit and loss, and goes
on swearing that advertising doesn't
pay. There ought to be a Keeley insti
tute or a hospital for the treatment ol
this class of lunatics, and if some en
terprising man will start one we will
tell him where to find patients enough
to fill it in about fifteen minutes. Na
The gentlemen who told us the new
trains would be put on this branch
were evidently talking through then
hats, as the spring schedules went in
to effect Sunday, and if a day passen
ger train has visited Lancaster no one
lias heard of the fact. The day trains
over on the K. D., have been madi
earlier, but our present train wih
continue to pass down at 11:20 ai
it has been doing heretofore. There is
only one way to get the day trains, and
that is to go before the general man
ager and explain to him the tenfold
advatages the company would reap bj
running their trains to Rowland. The
Commercial Club should take up the
matter. It can be done.
A number of tax-payers have petit
ioned the committee, which, was ap
pointed by the City Board of Counci;
to report on the advisability of estab
lishing water works, to report favor
ably. The most potent reason urged,
for favoring the enterprise, is the fact
that insurance rates would be rcducco
one-third, which would re-pay the tax
levied for the works. Beside this, the
comfort and convenience derived from
She system is beyone estimation, whei.
compared to the present condition of
affairs. Again, the Sanitary condit
ion of the town would be improved,
when we arc possessed of the means U.
remove filth and clean the town gen
erally. Statistics show that disease
is less prevalent in towns with works
than in those without them. We hope
that the Boerd will consider the mat
ter deliberately before taking action.
Notice to Trustees.
Under instructions from the State
Superintendent two Trustees were
elected in each School District in
Garrard County last October; the. one
receiving the greatest number of votes
to qualify as the regular trustees on
July 1 1805), and the one receiving
next to the greatest number, to qual
ify at once to fill a vacancy supposed
to.be then existing. Since that elec
tion the Court of Appeals has decided
that there was no vacancy at that
time, but that the old Trustees hold
over one year longer. Hence, the man
receiving next to the greatest vote
qualified through mistake and was, in
reality, never a Trustee. Therefore,
the one who received the GREATEST
NUMBER OF VOTES at the October
election will be recognized by me as
the legal Trustee forthe ensuing term
and he will according'y qu;.lify some
time during the month of June.

Old Vets In Danville.
A large number of Confederate vet
erans met at Danville Monday and
held an enjoyable reunion. The Ad
vocate says the veterans assembled in
the side yard of the Hotel at half-past
twelve and about one o'clock Captain
Richards summoned the boys to din
ner with a bugle call when the col
umn set out in double-quick march
toward the dining room. The decora
tions there were artistic and in keep
ing with the occasion.
The dinner, prepared by Capt. Rich
ards and his most excellent wife, was
a splendid interpretation of genuine
Old Kentucky cookery. It was not
served "a la carte," nor strung out in
small dishes through seven or eight
courses, leaving a man as hungry as
when he sat down, but was put on the
table in barbecue style and in quanti
ties sufficient to feed a multitude. On
motion, it was agreed to hold a reun
ion every year.
The Guthrie, Oklahoma Leader pub
lishes an account of the brutal shoot
ing of Miss Ella.Arnold in that city by
a man named Purdens. The young
lady is a daughter of I. B. Arnold, for
merly of this county and is widely con
nected here. The brute who commit
ted the crime was a constable and
went to the house of the young lady's
brother-in-law to serve some papers.
There being no men about the premi
ses, the man became abusive and;
drawing a huge revolver, started In
the door. Miss Arnold reached for a
revolver when the big cut-throat shot
her. The ball passed through the
girl's body, but hopes of her recovery
are entertained. The Leader says ex
citement-runs high, but Purdens has
not been lynched. If there ever was
a case where Judge Lynch should step
in, it is in this. The Leader says
some claim the fellow is not responsi
ble, but the thlmr for the courts to do
is hang a few of these "irresponsible"
people, and the insanity dodge will
not be attempted so frequently.
