Horse Known Here
"Hazel Dawn", the mare who cap
tured first money in the big $1000, sad
dle stake at the Louisville Horse Show
on last Friday night, is not unknown to
Lancaster people. The mare was the
property of Dick Scudder of Lincoln
and Charlie Dunn of Madison, and while
in their possession has often contended
for the premiums at the Lancaster
Miss Iva Lee and Mr. Oran Grow
were made man and wife by Rev. O. P.
Bush in Lancaster on last Thursday.
The bride is the attractive daughter of
Mr. W. H. Lee of the Nina section
and the groom is a son of Mr. George
Grow of Hackley and both are popular

The hot weather which has prevailed
during this month has proven very
beneficial to the tobacco crop and
many thousand pounds have been ad
ded through its influence. The far
mers are well along with their housing
although many acres of the late setting
remains as yet uncut The curing pro
cess is well under way and the pros
pects are splendid for one of the best
crops ever raised in the county.
Injured By Horse.
Mr. Thomas Ray a well known and
popular farmer who resides on the
Sugar Creek pike a few miles from
town was injured on last Saturday
afternoon by a horse which he was
driviner becoming unmanageable and
beginning to kick. Mr. Ray suffered a
fracture of the right leg below theknee
which "is very painful, but which it is
hoped will not disable him for any great
lengtn oi ipe,
Mat Cohen Leaves The Ring.
It will be a source of deep regret to
the many friends in this and other
states of clever Mat Cohen to learn
that after the present season, he will
abandon the horse business for other
fields. Mr. Cohan has accepted a very
lucrative position with a big Canadian
distilling Co. and will assume his new
duties in the near future. The show
horse business loses its star 'when Mat
Cohen abandons the game, and it will
be hard indeed to find a man with the
splendid abilities along that line to
take his place. With the splendid
knack of making friends ot with whom
helcomes in contact, "Mat' f will soon be
as popular in his new field as he was
in the old one.
Mr Doolin Has Accident
Mr. W. T. Doolin one of the best
known farmers of the Marksbury sec
tion came near having a serious acci
dent at the Robinson sale last week.
He was standing about one hundred
yards away from any of the crowd and
was looking at a bunch of cattle confin
ed in a temporary pen. One of the
cattle ran against the wire near where
he was standing and threw a post that
was not fastened in the ground against
Mr. Doolin's head and knocked him
about twenty feet, where he lay un
conscious for ten or fifteen minutes A
knot formed on hie forehead about the
size of a hen egg and he had Dr. Pur
sley put some of his liniment on it and
by now it is almost entirely well. If
the post had hit him more on the side of
the head, it might have killed him, for
it was certainly a very hard blow.
Rev. C. C. Brown will fill his pulpit
at the Presbyterian church Sunday
Mr. Bailey Resigns
Mr. H. C. Bailey, who for the past
few years has been assistant agent of
the L &N at this place, has severed' his
connection with that company and will
enter the coal, grain and feed business.
Mr. Bailey was a clever and accommo
dating official and we are sorry to lose
him in his official capacity, but glad to
know he will renain in Lancaster.
Every one knows Uncle Joe Hopper.
He will conduct a series of meetings
here at the Presbyterian church begin
ning the third Sunday in October.
Uncle Joe is a good man and will do
much good here. We sincerely hope
that nothing may happen to prevent
his coming to our town as it will do us
all good to hear him talk again.
Position At State Fair
Mr. Lige Ford, son of County Judge
A. D. Ford held a position at the State
fair in Louisville this year. He was a
clerk in the secty's office and it goes
without saying that Lige performed
well his duties. Sen. G. T. Farris also

shake for the Garrard county people

at the gate and directed people the
way to go.

Old lime Democratic Do'ins.
The Democracy of Kentucky is gath

not been seen in the last quarter of a
century is being held. Bands, Burgoo
and Oratory are on tap without limit;
special trains are run from all direc

hamlet to enable the unterrified to

Water Works Improvements Begin And
To Be Pushed To Rapid Conclusion.
The improvement of the Lancaster

000; in bonds were voted at the last
November election, are to begin at
once, in fact they have already start
ed, Mr. Charles M. Crawford of Lex
ington, a practical engineer, having
been employed and has already begun
his operations, surveying and locating
the site for the stand pipe, and the
other preliminary work necessary to
the letting of the contracts.
Mr. L. E. Herron, the Superinten
dent of the Water Works, who haa
been indefatigable in his efforts to
have the work commenced, and whose
efforts finally succeeded in disposing of
the bonds, tells us that it will probably
be necessary to let three different con
tracts for the completion of the work,
one for the standpipe, or resorvoir, one
for the new filter and the other for the
raising of the dam. Mr. Herron fur
ther tells us that the work will be
pushed forward as rapidly as possible
and every effort will be made to have
the earliest possible completion and
the lake ready for the winter rains,
the new filter to sterilize the water
and the reservoir to hold and store the
water and reduce the cost of operation
to the lowest possible expense, and
finally to give to Lancaster the most
complete and adequate system of water
works of any town of its size in Cen

Makes Them Right
There will be found in this issue of
the Record the advertisement of Mr. H
H. Roshrs the Danville tailor. Mr.
Rochrs wants it distinctly understood
that he does not wish to interfere in
any manner with the merchants of
Lancaster, he is seeking the trade of
those who are accustomed to "go to
the city" to have their clothes made,
and to these people he wishes to state
that he can save them money. He
makes his clothes out of the very best
material, employs nothing but the very
best, and highest priced union labor and
he guarantees the fit and workmanship
of every garment. Give him a trial.
Preparing For Big Business
The two good tobacco warehouses ac
Danville are preparing for a big busi
ness this fall. Both houses have built
more floor space and now have about
as large houses and certainly as good
ones as there are anywhere. Each house
can handle about 250,000 pounds a day.
Mr. R. E. Harland will De the auction
eer for the Danville Tobacco warehouse
and Mr. Givens Terrill will solicit for it
in this county. Mr. Hopper will also
be the book-keeper for this popular
house. The Peoples house or as it is
better known, Col. Ike Dunn's house
will draw a large trade from Garrard
as the Col. is an old Garrard county
man and never fails to let it be known
on all occasions. As yet this house has
n't any one to solicit in this county and
they are not sure as to who will be the
With the exception of the various
cases of appendicitis, Lancaster, has
been exceptionally free from sickness
during the present summer, due in part
probably to the heat not being so ex
treme, and to the fact that our people
are exercising more care as to the
sanitary condition of their premises.
Mr. John F. Holtzclaw who has been
suffering with typhoid fever, is able to
sit up and is fairly on the road to re
covery. Mrs. Cleveland Rose is also
reported as doing nicely and will be
able to be out in the near future, much
to the gratification of her many friends.
Messrs Jesse H. Arnold and Logan
Smith, who are in the St Joseph's
hospital in Lexington as the result of
operations for appendicitis, are doing
nicely, Mr. Arnold is recovering nicely
and Mr. Smith is expected home next
week. Mrs. William A. Dickerson who
recently underwent an operation in the
Good Samaritan hospital in Lexington
is reported as progressing nicely. Mr.
W. F. Champ who is in the Deaconess
hospital in Louisville is sufficiently con
valescent as to be able to sit up and is
expected home next week, while Mr.
Samuel G. Haselden who is at Norton
Infirmary in the same city is well on
the road to recovery.
