handsome and valuable hearse horses
last week with colic. This is the second
loss of a hearse horse Mr. Rigney has
suffered since last Christmas, and the

trouble experienced in securing horses
for this purpose, they are very expensive.

Rain is neeeed badly, stock water
is becoming scarce, cisterns getting
low and the dust is almost intolerable
Wheat sown is also in need of
showers. The tobacco men with the
coming of sufficient rain to "make a
season" will begin the stripping out
of the splendid tobocco crop. The dry
fall has been very conducive to the
curing of tobacco, and one of the very
best crops ever raised in the county
is the result of the splendid conditions
, which have prevailed since the setting
! out of the crops.

Who Can Beat This?
In a locality embracing one half
block in this city dwells four families,
the heads of whom are all comparitively
young men, which comprizes in the ag
gregate 28 children. Immediately west
of the Methodist church on Stanford
street lives Rev. Pollitt, who can boast
of 7 young hopefuls, immediately ad
joining him is Harry Crutchfield, 'the
efficent miller at the plant of the Gar
rard Milling Co., with an equal number,
just across the street is Chief of Police
Luther Herron with seven ana immed
iately east and adjoining him is Mr.
William Conn with seven more. We
venture to say this record cannot be
beaten within the same area.
The New Antioch Christian Church
of this county has been greatly edified
and strengthened by a series of meet
ings conducted by IJ. C. Lacy of Junc
tion City, Tenn. There were 2? addi
tions in all, including some of the best
people in that section,- fathers and
mothers among the number so that the
membership is strengthened as never
We cannot speak too highly of Bro.
Lacy's work among us. As a speaker
of the word he is strong and forceful
and presents the truth in a fearless
lovable manner. His personal work
was done vigorously and untiringly and
as a result he leaves a stronger body of
people,- a people fully awakened to
their responsibilities at home and in the
church and a people appreciative of his
work as a messenger of God.
Stable Changes Hands.
Mr. J. T. Rainey has assumed pos
session of the Sweeney stable and has

Mr. H. C. Bailey the coal dealer has
embarked in the real estate business
and already has listed a number of de
sirable pieces of property both farm
ing and town. With Mr. Bailey's ex
tensive acquaintance and connection in
eastern Kentucky, he will probably be
able to place a great many pieces of
Garrard county real estate.

Mat Cohen To Remain.
Mrs. Nannie Hedden, sister of Mat
S, Cohen, the popular saddle horseman,
has received a telegram from her bro
ther that he had decided not to accept
the $5,000 position with the Corbyville
Distillery, at Corbyville, Canada. At
first Cohen thought that he would like
the fat job up in Canada, but when the
time came to go, he appeared to be wea
kening on the proposition that would
take him so far away from his friends
and relatives here in Kentucky and out
of the saddle horse business. The tele
gram he sent was a typical 'Cohen' one.
It follows: "Have declined British
Columbia offer and am returning to
fight for, with and against the boys at
Can't Keep A Spuirrel On The Ground.
It is as natural for Ed Walton to be
in the newspaper harness as it is for
fish to be in the water. After closing
out his interests in Florida and return
ing to Kentucky, he at once began to
cast about for a location. He bought
the Somerset Times from Cecil Wil
Hams, but finding the field crowded
and seeing an opportunity to close out
at a profit he did so, and sought pas
tures new. He has now purchased an
interest in the Richmond Climax and
has already assumed active charge.
Mr A. D. Miller who has been the edi
tor of that sheet will retire to his farm
and endeavor to recuperate his failing
health, still however, retaining a fi
nancial interest in the Climax. The
Climax already a splendid weekly
under the masterly guidance of its new
editor will forge rapidly to the front
in Kentucky journalism.
H. G. Sandifer Sr. Former Resident Of
Lancaster And Prominent In Busi
ness And Social Circles In Dan
ville Dies On Banks Of
On last Saturday morning a colored
youth named Harlan found the body
of Mr. Henry G. Sandifer Sr. of Dan
ville Ky. cold in death on the banks
of Hanging Fork near the bridge on
the old Danville pike. A bucket of
freshly caught minnows were near the
body, which he had apparently stopped
to rest after catching, when the death
summons came. The young negro
hastened to Hedgeville from whence a
telephone message was sent to Dan
ville and an automobile containing
Sheriff Fox and other friends of the
deceased hastened to the scene and
removed the body to his home. Mr.
Sandifer left his home about six o'clock
Saturday morning bent on a days fish
ing, of which sport he was passion
atelly fond, and the body was not
found until near noon.

caster, but many years ago removed
to Danville and for forty six years has
been connected with the Boyle Nation
al Bank and for the past fifteen years
has been the cashier of that institu

the other business enterprises of Dan
ville. He was a member and active
worker in the Methodist church and
was one of the most prominent Masons
in Kentucky, being past Eminent Com
mander of the Grand Commandery of
ths state, and one of the most efficient
teachers of Masonry in the state. The
high esteem in which Mr. Sandifer
was held in Danville was svidenced by
the vast outpouring of people to hia
funeral, which was held at the Metho
dist church in Danvijle on Monday
afternoon and which waa conducted by
the Danville lodges, supplemented by
Masons from all over the state, nearly
400 being in the funeral march; a hush
seemed to pervade the entire communi
ty, the streets along the line of march
were thronged with people, high and
low, rich and poor alike, with bowed
head and downcast eyes, mourned the
loss of so good and true a man.
Mr. Sandifer was sixty seven years
of age. He is survived by his wife and
one son. Henry G. Sandifer Jr, of
Danville. He was a cousin to Mrs. E.
