Logan R. Smith Dead.
As we were about to go to press the
news reached our office announcing the
sad death of Logan It. Smith, which
had occured at the home of his parents
n this city about 10:30 o'clock Thurs
day morning. He had been in bad
health for some time, but last fall
when he went to Lexington and was
operated upon for appendicitis his
friends hoped for a speedy recovery,
but for weeks his life hung on a thread,
then a slow convalesence, after w hich
he was able to be removed from the
hospital to his home in Lancaster.
While his condition has permitted him
to be out most of the time since his
return from the hospital, his recovery
was not what his friends had wished
On last Friday he was taken des
perately ill and nil that a devoted
family.kind friends and the best of med
lent attention could do were of nojavtiil.
Immediately uhii learningof his serious
illness, Drs. McKee and Haas, specialist
were summoned from Lexington
to consult with Dr. J. H. Kinnaird
the attending physician. After ex
amination they announced his critical
illness and gave little hope to the
family for his recovery. The immediate
cause of his death as diagnosed by the
physicians was tuberculosis of the right
lung, which was rapidly transmitted
to the brain.
Logan H. Smith was in his 25th, year
und was the youngest child of Mr. and
Mrs. George Smith, Sr. of this place.
Ho leaves two brothers, Messrs George
Smith, Jr. local editor of the Record
and Mr. James W. Smith, one of Lan
caster most prominent merchants, and
one sister, Miss Eliza Smith of the
Lancaster High School faculty, Logan
Smith was one of the best known and
most iopular of Lancaster young men,
having been connected with the busi
ness of his brother, James W. Smith
until his illness some months ago and
was the city clerk of Lancaster at the
time of his death. He was very courte
ous and H)llte in all his dealings and a
consistent christian, having been a
member of the Lancaster Christain
church since a small boy. Much grief
la expressed at the sad taking oir of
this popular young man and we tender
the bereaved family and friends our
i deepest and tenderest sympathy in
Funerul services will be held at the
residence, this, Friday afternoon, at

Let Us Correct You Brother.
Jim Sterns in his good paper the
Jessamine News has the following to
say in regard to the recent change
which have been made in the manage
mnt of the Record:-
Robert L. Elkin. has become the
owner of the Lancaster Record and is
most affable gentleman. Green Clay
Walker the retiring editor, greatly im
proved the Record in many respects,
and his newspaper friends in the Stat
hope to see him win out in his race for
county attorney of Garrard.
Not quite correct Rro. Stears, Mr.
Robinson who has long been the presi
dent of the Record Publishing Co., has
taken over the holdings of former ed
tor ureen Clay Walker, and bcomes
editor-in-chief, Mr. Walker resuming
the practice of law in Lancaster. Mr.
Robert L. Elkin is added to the force
of the office in the capacity of Rusiness
Now that the controversy as to the
ownership of the Park has been settled
and it belongs to the town and the town
turns it over to the ladies, we know it
will be a Park Reautiful.
This is a very unselfish work on the
part of tho club women. The utter
lack of the mercenary element, the all
mbracing democracy they represent,
the opportunity offered for service, the
ever wideing sphere of influence, the
patriotism they inspire, should combinu
to create generosity and helpfulness on
the part of the public.
The future looms large in the
possibilities of the Civic department,
and unhampered, it will go on and on,
becoming to the town what the
ndividual woman is to the home,
conserving its resources, studying its
economics, making it immaculately
clean and wholesome, enhancing its
beauty and value, and quickening the
mental and spiritual life of the
All honor to the club women and long
may they live. The marvelous growth
of their membership, the scope of
endeavor and objects already attained,
means much to our town.
Oh For Some Sidewalks.
Many of the citizens of Lancaster
are anxiously waiting and longing for
the advent of spring, when we may
have those long promised sidewalks.
And it is to be hoped that no longer
ill the city council adhere to dilatory
methods in their efforts to have good
sidewalks throughout the city. The
citizens have long been promised them
and are growing.impatient at the delay,
There are places, even on the public
square, which a lady may noi pass
without imminent peril to her costume
from the uneven and imperfect walks,
Loose brick which tilt when you step on
them, throwing mud and water all over
ou, patched and uneven and a disgrace
to the city. On the main streets condi
tions are even worse, the sidewalks are
not only in a dilapidated and dangerous
condition, but there are other pitfalls
aiting the unwary, old wooded steps,
decayed and rotting away, which are
liable at any time to cause injury to
someone and thereby involve the city
in a law suit and put the taxpayers to
additional and unnecessary expense.
A great many of our citizens have
already put dowu hundsome concrete
walks, and in many cases, they were
put down with the e.cctation that
their neighbors would join them, and
that we would have walks all over town,
but with the exception of a stretch hero
and there, they as yet remain unbuilt,
and on thu contrary the walks instead
of getting better, have gone from bad
Now that wu have goodstieets, much
better in many instances than the side-
alks which skirt them, let us with the
coming of good weather see a general
construction of sidewalks, and the city
placed insuch condition that pedestrians
ay traverse tho streets in any direct
ion to thu city limits without the ne
cessity of providing themselves with
