that n wood or coal stove would do, and at

dirt. There is no more danger to be apprehended
from them than fioni a coal oil

A Way out of tne Difficulty.
There are so many candidates for the
office of Governor, and the candidnles are
all such t'ood and worthy men that it's hard
to decide between them. We've got a little
plan that it seems will settle the whole

Luke P. Blackburn again we can't
find a better. Commonwealth.
Well yes, that might help matters some,
but there is a document in existence, cnllcd
the Constitution of Kentucky, which objects
to any such proceedings, and the present
Governor will hardly continue in otlice
longer.thnn the loth of September, and

put in their application before that time.
