I The following story is founded upon II
an incident that happened in Adair I
county many years ago Aunt Lizf
zie Sharpe Is a real character The 1
statement that a young woman was
left at her house and subsequently be I
coming a mother is true as is also the
statement that the woman mysterious k
lydisappearcd from Aunt Lizzies 1
house leafing her child The boy grewc
to the age of 13y ears before he left the C
county Capt K G Butler of this p
city and other citizens of the county n
remember distinctly of seeing him y
upon several occasions If the story I
should prove of interest to the readersb

In the year 1842 in Adair county b
Ky there resided in an unfrequented b
portion of it an old lady who was fa L
miliarly known as Aunt Lizzie a
Sharpe She was the midwife for all il
the married ladies living within five
miles of her humble home and perhaps u
at her death she had been present at L
more births than any other womah in a
Kentucky She was a remarkably b
kind old lady a strict member of the t
Baptist church and in all her under m
takings she called upon her God to aid w
her in carrying them to a successful m
termination She lived alone about c
seven miles from Columbia her home S1
being a double log house It was fur II
Dished with old time furniture and n
and she had a number ot comfortable b
feather beds two cows one horse a its
few hogs and a well supplied poultry
yard of
pardOne
One Thursday evening in the month i
of May 1842 just as the sun was set as
ting a gentleman elegantly dressed P
driving a spirited span of horses ac of
companied by a young woman stop a
ped at Aunt Lizzies gate The g
gentleman alighted walked to the o
door and knocked It was soon an to
swered by the old lady who appeared In b
a nice home woven dress and wearing li
i white cap c
Is this where Aunt Lizzie Sharp D
resides said the gentleman F
L
Yes sir I am that lady will you
walk in 11
Accepting the invitation the gentle
man entered the building and after 8J
short consultation with the old ladyzl
he returned to the buggy said a few to
words to the young lady who stepped a
from the vehicle and accompanied the th
the gentleman into the house The a
d
team being cared for tea was soon
ready and the two weary travelers sat c
down to a comfortable meal It was t
splendidly cooked and was very much h
enjoyed after a long days Journey
Supper over and the dishes cleared L
away the trio conversed for two hours fi
the gentleman neverglvlnghis nor the b
young ladys name Aunt Lizzie a
suspected that they were pa a very im w
portant misson still she did not undertake h
w
take to draw them out believing that
that their object in paying her a visit s
Bwould

Finally the gentleman asked Aunt
Lizzie to show the young woman to bed
She was carried to an adjacent apart a
ment given a nice berth Aunt Liz8
L
ile returning to the room in which the
8
gentleman was sitting Upon reen
entering the room the gentleman t
o
gave Aunt Lizzie to understand
the object of his mission The young
lady belonged to a wealthy family in
In the Blue Grass section of the Statef
i f
she had been betrayed and was soon t
to become a mother In order to hide
her shame and save the family to which I
she belonged from 1Isgracehe desired i
to board her until after the critical f
hour of her life promising to paya lib
eral sum for her comfortable care The
<
The agreement was made and the gen 1
tleman retired occupying a differen i
pom from the one in which the young
lady was sleeping
The next morning after a very early
breakfast the gentleman bad a tewi
words with theirypung lady handed
Aunt Lizzie a large roll of bills
hooked up his team and let tin the di
rection he came Before starting how
ever he cautioned Aunt Lizzie toI

morning soliloquizing to herself thatI
cannot learn the name of my boarder
She is educated refined and exceeding
ly hufc she bu never Inti
mated her name although I have done
my best to catch it Perhaps she
knows best and I will not longer
weary her with my curiosity Fori
convenience I will call her Cora a very
pretty name to which she surely willI
not object n So from that time on the
I
young lady went by the name of Cora
in Aunt Limo house Cora soon 1
became acquainted with several per
sons in the neighborhood and made a I
fast friend of every new acquaintance I
her ladylike appearance justifying theI
belief that me washonorable Aunt
Lizzie became perfectly devoted to herI
and Cora took great delight in assist 1
ing about the house dutlesI
About four months after the depart
ure of tho gentleman from Aunt
Lizzies house Cora was taken sick andj
DSon was born unto her It was aI
beautiful child and every woman InE
the neighborhood called to see 1 1 The
mother did well and in two weeks meE
s
was going about the dwelling Twoj
months after the child was born when
t
everything seemed to be getting alongt
smoothly Cora was called one morn p
ing to breakfast Aunt Lizzie receiving
answer went into her room In the 0
latheb
bed the babe was quietly sleeping but
o
s mother had departedt
t
Aunt Lluie distressed almost outt
v
f her mind set out to find her visiti
i
ing all the neighbors but not a word
s to her wheraboute did she receiveI
For days and weeks the disappearance t
f Cora was the talk of the country C
around Some supposed that she hadt
gone to the river and drowned herself
others held to different opinions tiph
o this time the boy baby had not
been named and Aunt Lizzie be
g
lieving that she would have it to reart
christened the child Walter his sur
surt
name being for his godmother Sharpv
From the day of Walter a birth Aunt
Lizzie experienced but little trouble n
t
with him He seldom cried and fort
hours he would lie quietly in his little
bed nursing the bottle Aunt Liz
des heart was set on seeing him grow o
growt
manhood believing that there wast
mystery in connection with his birth
hlsbirthI
that would ultimately be explained
and that Walter would some e
day become a great man No mother I
could have given a child more attent
tion than this waif received from the
hands of Aunt Lizzie
One night In February 1843 Aunt
Lizzie as sitting by her comfortable o J
fire knitting the babe lying its cribl
beside her She was thinking of Cora
and wondering where she could beJ
1
when suddenly there was a knock at
att
her door She arose took a candle and
went forward Upon opening the door 1
she beheld a man about thirty years of
age and in his hand was a white piece 1
of paper Speaking gently he said
Is the home of Aunt Lizzie SharpJ
and areyou that lady Recelvlngan J
affirmative answer he handed Aunt
Ljzfiejtoo piece of paper and without l
another word took his departure Re
turning t the fire Aunt Lizzie j
opened the note and it read 4
Take care of the little one heaven
will reward yon Coju I
There was but little sleep that night J
for Aunt Lirile go startling wasi
the mysterious straHger sad the note
which he bore But time will set
matters right1 aald Aunt Lizzie I
and all I caa do is to patiently waltI
for development

Power of Banks
Let those who decry the power
of banks for evil look to Wall
street Within the past month
the Standard Oil Company con
trolling the City National Bank
the United Trust Company and
Farmers Loan and Trust Compa
ny and aided and abeted by other
banking interests to tho extent ur
almost 2OOOOOOXi fhns depre
ciated property values to the ex
tent of 2000000 and has caused
failures aggregating as much
more
It has brought the countryto
the verge of a disastrous panic and
has caused a tremendous falling I
off in trade
In this gigantic and almost inI
conceivable assault upon the coun
trys prosperity the Standard Oil
Trust has ben openly aided 1yI
the Republican Administration atI
Washington which has placed it I
self squarely behind the Standard
Oil Company and the stock mark I
et
In doing this it has enabled the
Oil Trust to bring disaster upon
the country and to wreak finan
cial murder upon two men who
had incurred ita enmity
Anthony N Brady had refused I
to sell the New Amsterdam Gas
Company to Rockefeller and thus
enable the money Czar to form a 4
gas trust in the city A S Big j 4
elow of Boston had refused to
sell the Boston and Montana Min I
I
ing Company to Rockefeller that I
the Oil Trust might control cop
per
perWith the allied force of 2000
000000 behind him Rockefeller
began the work of del i b
erately bringing on a panic i
that he might feel the gloryof re
venge and the satisfaction of say t
ing to Brady and Bigelow Give
me your property at my price t
The Oil Trust began to tighten t
the money market through the
City National Bank In ordinary t
times the market would have swag
ged gradually and investors would o
have had time to recover
It was therefore necessary to
give the market a firm tone while
the undermining process vas con e
tined Mr L Pierpont Morgan c
visited Washington Tho Treas
ury Department fell readily into
the scheme
Secretary Gage offered to buy I
25000000 of Governmeut bonds l
of the five per cents of 190i and
the four per cents of 1907 s
This offer served the purpose
It restored public confidence and
enabled the Standard Oil Compa
ny to continue its work When
the bonds were not readily offered
being in possession of the trust S
money again soared skyward
When interest reached 180 per
cent and prices tumbled and six
banks failed and Brady and Bigei
i
Rockefeller
low were swallowed Jl
and Morgan generously came to
the front and Tescuredthe coun
try from a disastrous panic No

Here are set forth the taqticsof
the trusts which the Republican
party believes in and which the
Republican Administration aids
and abets
To cap the whole climax of col
lusion the Government now des
ignates Rockefellers City Nation
al Bank aathe institution to re
ceive and disburse Federal taoney
If the Government is going into
the banking business it would be
better either to establish its own
banks or to make arrangements
for interest

Effects of the Gold Standard Bill ft
The effect of this measure is to
produce contraction is too evident
to be denied by its friends and ad
vocates In the first place it ab
solutely suspends the coinage of
another legaltender silver dollar
and confines silver coinage to that
of subsidiary coin which is only
legu tunder to the limited amount
of10J and thus further deprecia
tes the mint value of all silver
bullion It authorizes the Secre
tary of the Treasury practically
to redeem even the silver dollars
if he deems it necessary so that
silver is virtually taken out of cir
culation as primary money and is
degraded to mere token meney for
change like the nickel and the
penny and can henceforth have
but little effect on the prices of
commodities Every thing is bas
ed on gold and gold alone as a
standard of value and all other
forms of money are virtually re
deemable in gold and the prices
of all commodities are measured
in gold Not only so but alob
ligations both public and private
payable henceforth in gold In
fact when eventually the purpose
of this bill are attained all the
Treasury notes United States
greenbacks and silver certifi
cates and silver dollars will go out
of circulation and there will be no
other full legaltender money for
tho payment of public and private
contracts except gold Can the
purpose and tendency of this meas
ure be anything else but to count
eract the increasing influx in the
worlds production of gold and to
check and contract its volume
Not only is this the purpose but
it is evidently the further purpose I
of the contractionists to reduce I
the volume of full legaltender sil
ver money and thus to contract
the general volume of full legal
tender money Such a course is
bound to result in tin undue con
traction of the circulating medi
um and enhance the price of mon
ey on one side and decrease the
price of commodities except such
as are protected by a trust com
bination or monopoly on the oth
er side When population in
creases and commerce should ex
pand on pne side the volume of
primary money contracts on the
other and the inevitable result
must be falling prices of wages
and all commodities not in a trust
and enhancing in value of the
standard dollar in one wordI
dear money and hard times E
