A llea for our Capital.
It certainly is very interesting, if not
amusing, to a non-resident of this city
to read the papers and see how her
own citizens are parading her fllthiness
and. immorality before the public.
Can any of those writers cite a single
'town or city of fiOO or more inhabitants
'that is not cursed with these houses of
ill fame? And yet their papers are
not, nor nave not paraded them to the
public gaze. Is Frankfort worse than
other cities? Are her police more
neglectful of their duty than those of
other places? Can it be that her citizens
are more Immoral or degraded
than those of other cities?
Is there not some selfish motive behind
all this hue and cry? . We, in
common with all good citizens, deplore
that such tilings exist. But they nave
existed from time immemorial and
will exist as long as there are lewd
men in the world, for lewd men make
lewd women, but we do protest against
these writers parading it before the
public in this manner X. Y. Z.

D. A Bradford, wholesale paper
dealer of Chattanooga, Tenn., writes,
that he was seriously afflicted with a
severe cold that settled on his lungs;
had tried many remedies without benefit.
Being induced to try Dr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption, did
so and was entirely cured by the use
of a few bottle.. Since which time he
has used it in his family for all Coughs
and Colds with the best results . This

We clip the following account of a
legal spat between tho late Hon. Thos.
N. Lindsey and Judge Geo. W. Crad-dock
from tho Owen County Democrat:
I'. U. Major was the Judge of the court nt
the time, but declining to act on account ol
his relation to the litigants, TIios. 15. Ford
was cected Judge to try the case. His
election occurred in the absence of Mr.
Craddock, who lived in.South Frankfort, and
was nln'hys behind time in reaching the courl
room. Lindsey was putting in his best lick'
when Craddock made his appearance, blow
ing anil puffing like a porpoise, lie stopped
Lindsey and explained to the court the
unavoidable cause of his detention, Lindsey
responded: "Ye.Sj old man (raddock always-has
an excuse for not being in the court
room attending to his cases; and on the last,
great day when the angel Gabriel announces
to all mankind that old St. Peter is about t
close the gates of heaven, Craddock will In
in the distance yelling, wait n little while.
I'll be there directly."
Craddock felt sensibly the force of
remark, and was considerably "nettled,"
and responded as fojlnws:
"Yes, on the last, great day, when God
Almighty silting on his throne is ordering
Old Tom Lindsey down, down to hell when
he belongs, lie will be filing exception, aiu'
praying an appeal."
It is ne dless to say that the passage
between those distinguished gentIeirenof

A Sad Career.
The divorced wife of a Bonanza millionaire
recently came to a mournful
death, principally from taking chloral,
which .unsettled her mind and
her whole physical system. She
had been weakly and ailing and felt
her need of something to drown her
sorrows and brace her up. Had she
taken Brown's Iron Bitters, she would
have been invigorated so that she
could have fought her sorrows off, and
enjoyed healthy life. This valuable
medicine cures general debility, tones
the nerves, .strengthens the muscles
and aids digestion.

TJie Private Secretary.
Tho liuii'hnblo "Tho
vnto Secretary," was tho magnet tlmt drew
a large nudienco to Houek's Opera Houso
last evening. Tho play is not n now ono to
our theatre-goers, and at both of tho former
engagements when produced in this city it
mot with a flattering reception. It can
scarcely be called anything but- n three-act
farce, but it is a jolly one, and just enough
story to hold it together. At all times nearly
everything appears to be at cross-purposes,
and every body is delightful confusion,
which, however, receives a straightening out
that places everything all right, and makes
all of the characters content to live a While
longer. The cast remains about tho same
as upon its former production, and is in
every way a good one. Mr. W. H. Gillotto
as tho "Private Secretary" is the central figure,
and is peculiarly suitable to tho part.
Wo much doubt if there is an actor in tho
country who could make tho character more
droll in make-up, voice, and action. Ho is
a success. The hot-headed old uncle is in
the hands of Mr. M. A. Kennedy, who is
"an actor" in any lino of business for which
.he may bo cast; and young Frank Tanne-hill,
as tho lively nephew, who causes most
of the trouble, plays tho part excellently
well. Mr Morey and tho other gontlomen
of the cant did well, and tho same may be
said of tho ladies.
The Private Secretary will be at the
Opera House, November 14th.
Hiram Cameron, Furniture Dealer
of Columbus, Ga., tells his experience
thus: "For three years havo tried
every remedy on tho market for
Stomach and Kidney' Disorders, but
trot no relief, untl I used Electric
Bitters. Took five bottles and am
now cured; and think Electric bitters
the Best Blood Purifier in the world."
Mid. A. B. ltced, of West Liberty,
Ky.,used Electric Bitters for an old
standing Kidney affection and says:
"Nothing lias ever done me so much
good as Electric Bitters." Sold at
fifty cents a bottle by Jos. LcComptc.
