One Who Knows Gives The Reasons Why
Mr. Chas. Montgomery Of Casey
County Failed To Attend The
Dr. James P. RifTe, who formerly
attended school in Lancaster but who
is now practising in Erlanger Ky un
der the firm name of "Dr. J. P. Riffe
& Son", has written the Record a let
ter in which he throws some light upon
the true reason why Mr. Chas. Mont
gomery of Casey county, and a mem
ber of the district committee, failed to
attend the recently called meeting in
Stanford Ky. The part of Dr. Rifle's
letter which bears upon this particular
subject reads as follows:-"Now what I
want to write about is the "Senatorial
Committee, which didTiot'-neet on ac
count of the absence of Charles Mont
gomery of Casey county. It so hap
pened that Mr. Montgomery married a
niece of mine, and he had her here to
see me, and I sent her to the German
Deaconess Hospital in Cincinnati last
Wednesday, and she underwent a seri
ous operation last Friday. Mr. Mont
gomery was with her, and this accounts
for his non attendance at the meeting.
He spoke of the meeting and regretted
very much that he could not meet with
the committee. He left Cincinnati last
night for Liberty". Mr Riffe's letter
was written the 20 inst.
ities were handed down to their eldest
son. He was first married in 1862 to
Miss Belle, the daughter of the late A.
F. Denny, and to that union was born
Miss Belle Walker, who has long since
letter from gone to her reward, and isliss tnza-
wouldn't befbeth, now Mrs. J. V. uoland ot
Huntington W. Va. After the death
of his first wife Mr. Walker was again
married in 1871 to Miss Fannie Terrill,
who survives him, together with four
sons, Messrs John W. and Toles T.
Walker of this place, Arch K. Walker
of Princeton Ky, and Robert Walker
of Fayetteville Tenn. and one daughter
Miss Margaret Walket of this place, as
well as by two brothers, Messrs J.
Wade and Arch K. Walker and one
sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Denny, all of
the county. During his entire life Mr.
Walker has resided upon his farm to
the south east of Paint Lick, until a
few months age he purchased and
moved to a home on Lexington street
in Lancaster, in the hope that the
change of scene and surroundings
might prove beneficial, and in order
that he might be closer to the care of
A Presbyterian of the old school, Mr.
Walker united with the church at
Manse, Old Paint Lick, in his early
boyhood days, and it has been through
the instrumentality of him and his
brothers that the church at that place'
has maintained its position as one of
the strongest churches of that de
nomination in this part of Kentucky.
For more than thirty years he has been
one of the elders.
An uncompromising democrat, he
has ever been ready and willing to
give of his time and talent for his
party's welfare, and has been consider
ed a power through the county in time
of elections, but he has never aspired
to office, in fact he has studiously
avoided office holding, refusing to ac
cept office, which he might time and
again had at the hands of his party,
but which he as often rejected, save
the office of Magistrate of his district,
which office he consented to accept,
principally because he believed that he
might be of more benhfit to the com
munity in which he dwelt-
A blunt, plain spoken man, but with
a heart as tender as a womans, and
with a kindly sympathy for all who
were distressed, and a hand as ready
as a heart that was true, he was a
blessing to the people in whose midst
he dwelt, ever ready to assist them in
their trials, both with good advice and
that which was more substantial, for
miles around there were those who will
miss him for his many noble and char
itable deeds, whom he had befriended
time and again, when there was no one
else to whom thev might turn. To
these his memory will ever be fondly
cherished, and the knowledge ij brought
vividly to them that they have lost a
friend whose place it will be impossible
to fill. Oldest of the famous "Walker
Bros." of Garrard county, he is known
all over the United States as a fol
lower of the hounds and a raiser of
fine fox hounds; the first president of
the National Fox Hunters Association,
and an officer in that organization
since its foundation. Even in his de
clining years, the last two years when
he was desperately ill, he delighted to
meet with his old friends of the organ
ization when they-would hold their an
nual meeting at Crab Orchard, and to
him the sweetest music on this earth
was the baying of a favorite hound.
The entire county mourns him as a
true hearted, noble minded christian
gentleman, and our grief while felt
more poignantly here at home, where
he is known and loved best, is shared
for no man was known better, and to
know wa3 to love and respect him, and
the tears and grief of the entire com
munity is mingled with those of the
family in their bereavement.

Card Of Thanks.
We desire to extend our sincere
heartfelt thanks to the many
friends who have extended us
sincere sympathy and assistance in our
recent affliction and bereavement.

Name Oi Stone Postoffice Changed.
The name of the postoffice at Stone
in this county has been changed and
the name of the office is now Coy. All
mail formerly intended for Stone should
be addressed to Coy, Garrard county
Ky. This action was taken by the
postoffice authorities and was rendered
necessary by the fact that there is
another office called Stone in Pike
county Ky. and the mail for the two
offices was being badly confused.
