The family here were in touch with

more than a month the aged mother,
Mrs. Lou F. Miller, watched the
Changes, and with tender hands and a
heart full of love soothed her beloved
daughter as her life was fast ebbing
away. The devotion of Mr. Geo. R.
-Miller, her second brother, her second
son, Geo. E. Eeed; his wife,and all the
other children and brothers were

Asked to Deliver Funeral Oration
Over "Dead Ones" at Jubilee.
So sure are the Democrats of a
great national victory that it is beipg
planued to hold a big jubilee in Louis
ville the week following the election,
to celebrate the event. Col. Ben Lee
Hardin has received a letter asking
him to deliver the funeral oration
over the Eepublican and Bull Moose
corpses at the gathering. No better
selection, in our opinion, could have
been made. When Tilden was elected
President in 187(5 Col. Hardin deliver
ed the oration at the burial of the
"Bloody Shirt" in the court house
yard. A well-known Eepublican of
that day donated one of his shirts and
it was taken to the slaughter house
and dipped in blood, placed in a cask
et, and with three Confederate and
the Federal soldiers as pall-bearers the
funeral cortege wended its way up
Main snreet followed by a thousand
horsemen and two or three thousand
on toot, and the casket was consigned
to a grave dug for it in the corner of
the court house yard. "Quinine Jim"
McKenzie, who was some pumpkins as
an orator himself, was on the stand
and heard. Col, Hardin's funeral ora-
Ition. and ne said it was the llnest he
had ever heard fall from the lips of
man. By all means Col. Hardin is the
mail that is needed in Louisville at
the celebration. Ha rrodsburg Herald.
