Having purchased 'the entire
outfit of the Mt. Vkrnon Signal,
I desire to announce to the public
that I Mull endeavor to run strictly
a paper. I shall put
forth my very best energies to
build up our county socially,
intellectually and commercially.
While the paper will
to be Democratic, it will treat
the Republicans with due consideration
and fairness, and shall publish
all doings of that party which
we deem of interest to out people.
We will add new type, new machinery
sufficient to make a first-class
office. We are glad to say that we
have retained the valuable services
of Mr. S. C Franklin as manager
of the mechanicaf department.

the K. C. at $9,oeo. They also
report that 109 persons have been

Hon. David B.JHenderson, ol
Iowa, wasjehosen Monday as speaker
of the House of Representatives
to succeed the Hon. Thomas B.
Reed who resigned to go to New
York to practice law. The
Democrats chose "Slim Jim"
Richardson, of Teunessee, the
finest parlimentarian in the South
to lead them on the floor.
The Seventh eonressional district
election is so one-sided an affair
that it is'attracting but litte public
attention. Owens is acceptable to
neither silver nor gold Democrats,
aud both white and colo'd Republicans
rtgard him as an Uitlander.

When the name of Brigham
H. Roberts, the newly elected
Congressman from Utah was called
in the House last Monday, he ad
vanced to the Speakers stand to be
sworn in. Then Congressman Taylor,
of Ohio, entered a protest on
the ground of Roberts' having three
wives. Taylor, the Republican,
spoke amidst breathless silence
but with great calmness and deliberation.
McRae, of Arkansas, followed
with an eloquent protest
from the Democratic side, saying
the issue was one involving the
sacredness and purity ol the home
whether it was the mansion or the
log hut with stick chimney, which
produced an out-burst of applause.

Hon. June W. Gaylb. who
was defeated in the State Convention
at Louisville, for the nomination
nf Auditor, was selected
at Frankfort as the successor
of Evan E. Settle, Notorious
Bill Owens, of Scott county,
was named on the same
day by the Brown Democrats to
oppose Mr. Gayle. Owen's nomination
was endorsed by the Republicans
111 convention an hour
later. He will run under the log
cabin. Col. W. C. P. Breckinridge
was tendered the nomination
but refused it; and now comes out
in his paper against Owens whom
he says is not the man to purify
politics, because he had always won
by force and fraud.
Thk gathering of so many men
at Frankfort, transported there by
the L. & N., free of charge, to witness
the count is unfortunate to
say the least of it. The fighting
men of Eastern Kentucky were
given tickets and ordered to come
to the -Capitol. They went
to the call, but were neither
lodged or fed after they arrived.
So they were soon disgusted and
returned home without the loss,
either of life or limb. The Republican
biavos, whether in militia
costume or citizens clothes, openly
declared their intention to seat
Taylor by force of arms if need
be, whether he got the certificate
of election or not. We like the
Republicans of this county.
Many of them are good men and
want peace, sweet peace. But we
think that such proceedings bring
disgrace k upon the fair State of
Kentucky. That the effect is bad.
yea, very bad. Reason has fled to

and Christian forbearance weep

A SURE CURE FOR ROUPS
Twenty-vive Years' Constant

The first indication of croup is
hoarseness, and in a fchild subject
to that diseas it may be taken as a
sure sign of the approach f an attack.
Following this hoarseness
is a peculiar rough cough. If
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
given as soon as the child 1 c come
hoarse, or even after, , tue croupy
cough appears, it will prevent the
the attack. Ic is used in many
thousand of homes in this brod
land and never disappoints the anxious
mothers. We have yet to
.earn of a single instance in which
it has not proved effectual. No
other pr'paration can show such
a record twenty-five , .years' , constant
