Frankfort, Ky. August 20tli, 1885.
Hon. M. E, Bell, Supervising Anhitect, U, S.
Sir: The citizens of Frankfort are exceedingly
anxious that the Depaitment shall ijivc
them their Public Duihling, finished and furnished,
within the next four months. The
LefjUlsiture of Kentucky will meet at Frankfort
on December 31st, 1885, and the building
should be completed if possible, and the
moved into it one week before that
time. The plasterer now has on 2 of , the 3
coats in all stories; the ulumber and assistant
are hard at work, and the hot water heating
apparatus is being fixed in position. The
contracts for the inside carpenter work and
for -marble tiling, mantels and grates, if
awarded now and pushed with vigor, can be
completed inside of three mouths. This
would leave one month for painting and
cleaning, and the could be moved
into the new building on Cliristnus day.
Meantime, pavements, iron fence, and retaining
atone wall can be completed without
delaying any other contractor. All of this
can be done; it ought to be done; and there
fore, I trust it will be done.
Very respect fnlly,.
David AMuui'UY, Sup't.
Persons having houses to rent would
do well to call at this office and let it
be known. We now have two applications
fQr houses from two good tenants.
The pump on Main street, in front
of L. B. Marshall's, has received some
much needed attention. The seepage
from the gutter has been shut out, the
wall cemented, and it is now probable
that those of us in the centre of the
city who have to send several squares
for drinking water can get a bucket
full nearer home occasionally.
Miss Katie Putnam, the greatest
favorite of our amusement loving public,
will visit this city again on Friday
night, the 28th inst., and make her
appearance nt the Opera House, supported
by a first-class company. The
play for that night is not yet announced
but will be one of her best pieces. Secure
your seats at Barrett's, for there
will be a crowded house.
Miss Lizzie Evans had a fair audience
nt the Opera House Tuesday
to witness the rendition of Florette,
the Fern Vender, She was the same
bright little fairy of two yars ago, and
delighted the audience by her 'acting.
Her support was very good, but the
intervals between the acts were so long
that the audience became weary before
the play was half over. She certainly
should have crowded houses.
Some workmenengaged in repairing
the county road near the mouth of
Glens Creek last week, unearthed an
Indian pipe which was buried some
five or six feet beneath the original
surface of the ground. It is made' of
red sandstone, of the kind most highly
prized by the Indians, 'a remarkably
well preserved, and is a smooth and
pretty piece of work. Judge R. A.
Thompson has secured it for his collection
or curiosities at the Court-house.
The Spring Hill Gun Club were

Testimony of Judge G. P. Lynch.
I was a sufferer for twenty years with
tetter, covering my entire person. It
was exceedingly painful nncl annoying.
I tried every known remedy within
reach, but to no permanent profit. My
health became wrecked. The doctors
could help me, but could npt cure me,
and under the old time treatment the
disease continued to grow worse and
the itching became almost unbearable.
I read the statement of Mr. Lewis Lie
as to what Swift's Specific had done for
him in a case of tetter, and I eoncltu'ed
that it might help me. I commenced
its use: the sores have all dried up, and
the skin of my body has smoothed off
and I am in better health than I ever
was, and there is not a vestage of the
disease left, save ajfew splotches on one
of my hands, and they are rapidly disappearing.
Swift's Specific! is the
the world. It has brought
me relief after twenty years of suffering
It is the best blood purifier I have ever
used, and most cheerfully commend It
to the suffering. C. F. Lynch.
