to the road coming through Garrard,

will most assuredly be vbuild if the
right-of-waw is given. If this is not
forthcoming, we will be equally as pos

clden, of this city, and Miss Ruth
Duncan, of !Nicholasville, will drive to
Lexington and be married in that
city. Mr. Haselden is one of the
most honorable and industrious young
men in Lancaster, and no one is bet
ter liked or more popular than he.
The bide-to-be is a young lady of ma
ny accomplishments and great beauty.
They will return to Bryantsville to
spend a day or so and return to Lan
caster. Mr. Haselden is in business
with his brother, J. Raymond Hasel
den, and holds a good position. The
Recokd extends congratulations in
Gov. Bob Taylor.
The lecture, last Friday night, was
attended by a cultured and appreci
ative audience, and it goes without
saying that everybody was delighted.
His flights of eloquence were far be
yond the ordinary and his anecdotes of
mountain life, together with his pic
tures of human action, both in the
sublime and the rediculous were high
ly entertaining and elicited frequent
applause. Gov. Taylor has many
friends here and we hope that he will
come again in the near future. The
audience was not as large as it would
have been, on account of the fact that
a number of attractions had preceded
him, and the Lyceum course is booked
ahead, beginning to-night, -Thursday,
when the popular lecturer, Spillman
Riggs will appear at the Court House,
accompanied by Megibben KJmbrough,
the famous pianist.

Lancaster ITIrii Win Prizes.
At the poultry show in Nicholas-
villelast week, Lancaster exhibitors
were especially lucky Master Robert
Ware McRoberts only showed one pen
of Pekin ducks, and was given second
prize. Mr. Robert L. El kin took
first prize in this ring and also on
young ducks and old ones. Mr. Elkin
also took six prizes on his celebrated
Black Minorcas, the same breed he
has so often come out victorious with
at poultry shows all over the country.
A Swell Banquet.
The Knights of Pythias are arrang
ing for the swellest banquet ever giv
en in Lancaster. It will be given in
the new hotel and will come off prob
ably the second week in January. This
olHce has been given an order for
handsome menu cards, and judging
from the length of the bill of fare it
will take all night to get through
eating. A number of good speakers
are to scrape the cob webs from the
sky, a band of music will be in attend
ance, and the boys are looking forward
with great pleasure for the oocasion.
No Issue Next Week.
Ai we have some very important
business to attend to, matters which
call us from home and cannot be de
layed, we will issue no paper next
week. The time lost to advertisers
will be made up in subsequent issues.
We dislike to miss an issue, but it is
unavoidable this time. We will take
occasion in this connection tosay that
we are deeply grateful to those who
have patronized The Recokd in the
past year, and devoutly hope we have
merited the favors. Editors, like the
rest pf mankind, frequently make
mistakes, and if we "have tread upon
anyones feelings we are sorry for it,
and if you have tread upon ours, we
are glad of 'it. Here's wishing our
readers a joyous Christmas, and we
hope every one of them will reap God's
richest blessings not oply throughout
the new year, but for all time-to
and cheapest hi!

Advocate Souvenir Edition.
Friday the Danville Advocate blos
somed out in a sixteen page souvenir
and trade edition which surpasses any
thing of the kind attempted by the
rural press of Kentucky. It is chock,
full of interesting matter pertaining
the history of the little city, and con
tains many write-ups of her business
men and matters. The edition reflects
much credit upon Bro. Harry Giovan
noli. upon whom the work fell. The
press work is elegant, and goes to
show the careful and painstaking
methods of Mr. Donnegy, the foreman.
He is one of the best foremen in the
state, and never goes at his work with
only a view of getting through, but
shows his honesty to his employers by
putting forth every effort to turn
out the very best work. Such men are
a joy forever in a printing office, or in
any other business. The Advocate
