The pressed brick for the hotel are
being put on the ground. They are
made at Zancsville, Ohio, and are
beauties. They cost 2i cents apiece
laid down here. They are brought to
Danville over the Q. & C, and hauled
here in wagons. Mr. Ryan says by
doing this he saves $2.50 per thousand,
the freight being less than that charg

J. W. Daugherty, of Nieholasville,
who is working in the. interest of M.

spoken of. He was introduced by L,
A. Leavell, one of Garrard's most
prominent colored men. Mr. Leavell
said "If the democratic ticket is made
up of such men as Mr. Cassidy, I will
vote for the entire ticket."

Since Joe Petty has been on duty as

Mr. Vester Jordan, of Wilmore, and
Miss Lizzie Pumphrey, of this city,
were quietly married at the home of
the bride's parents in this city Thurs
day evening by Rev. Massec, of the
Baptist church. The wedding was a
surprise to their-friends, they having
kept it a secret until a short time be
fore the appointed time. The groom
is a well-to-do young man, and the
bride, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jas.
W. Pumphrey, is a young lady of many
accomplishments. The happy pair
will reside at Wilmore.
The War Department has wired Lt.
W. T. Johnston, recruiting officer at
Lexington, Ky., to enlist colored ap
plicants for Cavalry and Infantry ser
vice, sending the former to Fort Grant,
Arizona, and the latter to Fort Doug
lass, Salt Lake City. This isanex-
eellent opportunity for young colored
men to get into the regular Army.
Recruit for white Infantry and Caval
ry regiments are also wanted. Apply
to Lieut. W. T. Johnston.

Capt. IffrFarland Retired.
Capt. McFarland, of the 16th U. S.
Infantry, has, upon his own request
been placed upon the retired list. He
has been in the service thirty years.
The wounds received at the famous
charge up San Jaun nill have caused
him much trouble and his physician
advised him to retire and enjoy a well
earned rest. The part he took in the
San Juan fight has been highly com
plimented by the War Department
and the daily press that published ac
counts of the tight.
Recruits for the Philippines
The Recruiting Officer in Lexington
has just received orders to enlist a
number of white men for service in
the regiments now in the Philippine
Islands. These men will be sent di
rect to San Francisco from Lexington,
and from there to Manila. This will
make a tine trip for able bodied men
unmarried, and not over 35 years of
age. It will be a chance to see the
world, and possibly make a trip en
tirely 'round it. Persons desiring to
enlist should apply at once to the re
cruiting officer in Lexington, in orfler
to be in time. may 4-tf.
After the G. A. R.
Capt. Herndon and James Dillon,
representing the white Post, and Ca
rey Mullins, of the colored Post, went
to Glasgow, Monday, to attend the
state meeting of the G. A. R. They
will make a strong tight to have the
meeting held in Lancaster next year.
If it comes, it means many dollars to
the town, beside much enjoyment to
the friends of many old Yets.
WE GET IT.
A telegram from Capt. Herndon
says "We get the encampment in 1900.
This is good news, and now let's all
hustle to make it a grand success.
The bible says Sunday was set apart
as a day of rest. That's very true,
but the 1809 Sabbath is usad by some
people principally as a day to be re
ligious. The long-tail coat, the jack
ass-in-a-grave-yard look are only ex-
hibitedm Sunday, and the hypocrite
ays them aside at 10 o'clock Sunday
night to be used no more until the
following Sunday. One of Sam Jones
subjects is "Sunday Only Religion'
and in" it Samuel has food for much
talk, lt is dfsgusting-to see so many
men pretend to be religious on Sunday
and then be as mean as the very devil
the next six days.
New Paper At Stanford.
Hon. T. M. Goodnight and Mr. Joe
F. Waters were here Monday and told
us a brand new Democratic newspaper
advocating the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at the ratio 16 to
without the consent of anyother Na
tion in the world, located right on top
of the Chicago platform, and red-hot
for Hon. William Jennings Bryan for
President, will be launched at Stan
ford in a few weeks with themselves
as the editors. They propose for it to
be a visitor to every household in Lin
coln and adjoining counties and will
print oyer three thousand the first
issue, the subscription price being
only $1.00 per year, and it will bef an
eight-page paper with-tho news of the
whole world. They said they were
meeting with the greatest encuurage-
ment from people In Lincoln, Boyle,
Mercer, Casey, Garrard and adjacent
counties and now is the time to climb
int t ie band wagon. Mr. Goodnight
isa lawyer of much ability. Every
body knows Joe Waters and what kiLd
of a fellow he is.
Contract Let Tor Erection of Hand
some Block on thu Old Opera
Monday Dr. J. B. Owsley, of Stan
ford, closed a contract with Messrs.
Ryan for the erection of a handsome
block of buildings on the site of the
old opera "house. This building will
cover the. entire lot from the National
Bank to Richmond street. It will
consist or four store rooms, running
full depth of lots and office rooms above.
The front is to be of Ohio pressed brick
with trimmings of cut stone, and the
entire front of store rooms plate glass.
There are to be large tire walls be
tween each store and the entire build
ing constructed in the latest and most
up-to-date manner. The" building
will cost $10,000 and is to be completed
by fall. -The erection of this block
will be one of the greatest blessings
the town has had. There is a demand
for more store and office rooms and
this building will till a long-felt want.
Rent in Lancaster has been decidely
too high, and the additional rooms
will, we sincerely hope, bring the
prices within reason. Dr.Owsley has
the thanks of our people for his en
terprising step. The Messrs Ryan
will begin work at once.
The other night as J. T. Hammond
was unloading ice, one of the large
cakes fell on his foot, badly mashing
the member and causing much pain.
Mr. Hammond hauls ice from Stan
ford during the night and the dark
ness is partially the cause of the accident.-
He's about all right now.
The Protracted meeting.
We do not rememter of seeing more
interest displayed in a protracted
meeting than is being manifested in
the one now in progress at the Christ
ian church. Every seat is occupied at
each service, and the most marked
attention given the speaker. Eld.
Powell is a man of excellent educa
tion, a fluent speaker and displays
much feeling in expounding the gospel
of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
Quite a number have united with the
church. A feature of the meeting is
the splendid music. Some fifteen or
twenty of the bestsingers in the coun
ty take part and this, in connection
with Miss May Z. Hughes' organ ac
companiments, makes complete one of
the best choirs we have ever heard.
It is not known yet whether the meet
ing will be closed Sunday night.
Lancaster Is Coming.
Some idea of the rapid strides our
town is making can be gathered from
the following list of work we found in
the office of Messrs J. R. and Richard
Ryan. Their office, at the Hamilton
House, is one of the busiest places in
town, but they always find time to be
mighty polite and kind to callers. They
now have on hand the residence of
Cabcl Denny, on Lexington avenue.
fi2,500; the Hotel, $20,000: J. C.
Thompson, dwelling, $2,800; n. M. Bal
lou, residence, $1,500; Thos Austin,
residence $1,800; Dr. J. B. Owsley, bus
iness block, $10,000. Then they have
to remodel the residences of Capt.
Herndon, Dr. J. B. Kinnaird, J. C.
Hemphill, J E. Stormes and Maj. R.
Kinnaird: They are also preparing
plans for much prospective work,
among this being the Y. M. C. A.
gymnasium, remodeling the Cnristian
church, and several dwellings.
Fine mint Crop.
In the rear yard of the Court House
in this city is one of the finest crops
of mint that erg the sun shone on.
About twenty-five years ago each of
the various officers at the building
kept a jug of fine liquor at hand. It
was "the thing" in those days, even
in the private home, to bring out the
demijohn, and nothing was thought
of it. As stated above, the Court
House officials were" no exceptions to
the rule, and, in order to make things
complete, this bed of mint was plant
ed. Not only the officials, but many
citizens took great pains in seeing the
mint well looked after. Their careful
attention was rewarded, as the roots
are thickly set now, and the fragrance
of the weed causes the mouth of ma
ny a sanctimonious old cuss to "wa
ter" as he passes the spot. We say
"sanctimonious old cuss" because its

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 1899, and the one" receiving
next to the greatest number,, to qual
ify at pnee 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,cbut that th old Trustees hold
over one year longer, neoce iae man
receiving next to the greatest vote
qualified through mistake'andwasMn
reality, ne.ver a Trustee. Therefore,
the one who received the GREATEST
NUMBER OP VOTES at the October
election will be recognized by me as
the legal Trustee for the ensuing term
and he will accordingly qualify some
time duringtke month of June.
