A reader desires to know why it is
that so many Crittenden county peo

much disturbance of religious worship
Every Pukwj bas our friend tells
of some un fort uu ate being bereft of alike

religious worship We have beeu at
uo littlle loss to account for these ap

intelligent people to go crazy hence
Crittenden may suffer along that line
Wo have more religious worship than

Caseyville and Lindell Precincts

Information from Union county is
to the effect that there is a chance
for trouble dowu there The eyes
of the county are now centered on
Capt Thos O Ulackwell who has
been appointed to collect the tax
due in the Lindell and Cascvville
precincts on the bond Nsucd by them
to aid the building of the Providence
and Shawncctown railroad The
history of the bonds has often been
told in the columns of the district
prcsj and needs no repetition here
Lapt HiacKwclI qualified a lew
months ago as collector of the hated
railroad tax of the Caseyville and
Lindell precincts in the western part
of Union county This tax was lev
ied 25 years ago for tho building of
tho road that never materialized It
has been the cause of Union having
no sheriff for many years as no one
would assume its collection The
face of the bonds now amount to 25
per cent of tho property of those
precincts Capt UUckwell is getting
ready to begin worK by appointing
tome of the 100 men who are to ac
company him on his collecting tour
He is said to have a strong financial
backing and the conjectures as to
his success arc mony and diverse
To be forced to pay this larce

womans theatrical venture died a

look will ftll as flat as her attempt to
go upon the stage
owners to those most interested
bojuii cruel It is a distressing con
dition and the people can hardly
under J ho circumstances be blamed
for Joking their temper
The collection of this tax in many
instances will be worse than a hard
ship it will amount to au absolute
wiping out of a number of small
Innd owners If it could effect only
those who voted for the tax it would
not be so hard but it operates on nil
This money must be paid and
there is no hope for a railroad and
for this reuson the land owners of
these piecincts with the strength of
right refuse payment or compromise
and who can blame Uiem Hen

For some days a report has lieen
afloat to tho effect that an officer oc
the Federal Government found n still
of the moonhinc order nt or near the
county poor house The reports dilfer
somewhat in detail and it is probable
that theexact situation is not known
at least a percistent ellort to learn all
the facts in the cae has proven inef
fectual so far The first report that got
abroad was that the still had been dis
covered in a cellar under an outbou e
on the county poor house farm that
u was destroyed by the officers and
that Win Goode the keejer of the
poor house had been arrested and ta
ken and taken to Louisville This
story lacks confirmation Persons
from that of the county have
heard something about the still being
destroyed but do not know whether
Goode was arrested or not Others
are confident that au old unused still
had been discovered nnd destroyed
but while they had not seen Goode
were satisfied he had not been nrres
Some months ago an illicit distillery
on a small scale was unquestionaby
unearthed in that section of the coun

loaded his apparatus on a wagon for

Will Lrect a llninNome llrlck
In the illustrated edition of the
Pnrss it was stated tint the Cum
burland Presbyterians of Marion were
looking forward to the time when
they could worship in a house more
in keeping with the progressive spirit
of the town than the neat but small
building in which they now hold ser
vices The fust step towards the
new house have been taken in the
purchase of the beautiful lot at the
comer of Main and Depot streets
opposite the residence of Mr G C
Gray The lot is one of the prettiest
in town and is centrally looted and
the site is in all respects a splendid
ouu for a church During the life
of the late John Lamb it was his
iiope to see a church on that spot
and his heirs in deference to his well
known wishes about the matter pro
posed to tho church to contribute
500 towanh the enterprise if steps
would be taken at once The church
gladly accepted the conditions and
the lot was purchased It is too luti
in the season to begin building this
year so everything will be gotten in
order for the work next season and
by this time next year a large brick
building will have reared its spire
