FRANKFORT, FEB. 27, 1802.
Town Marshal Elijah Davis, of
Midway, arrested a counterfeiter by
the name of Thos. J. Rudd in that
place Saturday, brought him to this
city on Monday and lodged him in
It seems that Rudd went to Nich
olasville last week to shove some of
the "queer" he had made, and while
there offered to sell a party some
counterfeit money, which came
tothe ears of an ofllcor, who
telegraphed Davis to arrest Rudd,
which he did, and searched his house
but failed to find any of his counterfeiting
tools, his wife having secreted
them at a neighbor's, without the
knowledge of the family. The neighbor
went to the house the next day
and told Mrs. Rudd that the house
was to be searched a second time,
when she said that was all right; she
was not afraid, as sho had hidden
everything in a hole in the ground.
The neighbor told her she had better
not leave the things there as they
might bo discovered. 'Well," she
said, "I'll bring them np to your
house as I did before." The neighbor
told her if she brought the tools to
his house not to do so until after
dark, which she promised.
Davis was notified and when Mrs.
Rudd went to the neighbor's that
night he was waiting for her and
caught her with a mold of a silver
dollar and one for a dime, and a lot
metal in her hands. The molds were
made of copper and well excuted.
They were turned over to
Ohinn, who now hold8
them as evidence against Rudd.
Rudd had been living at Midway
about two months and claimed to be
a traveling peddler.
Small But Destructive.
Saturday morning at 6:30 o'clock
Mr. Wm. O'Donnell went to his store
and upon opening the door was mot
by a volume of smoke coming from
the rear of tho store. He ran in and
turned up the gas, when he discover"
ed the floor on fire in several places
and immediately ran to the engine
house and gave the alarm. Plugman
Edmund Taylor went back with him
and in a little time had the fire extinguished.
Upon examination it was
found that a spark from tho stove
had set fire to the curtains which
tho work room of his millinery
department, and when they burned
loose from the rods upon which they
were suspended they dropped down
and set fire to tho floor. At one
f place there was a pile of paper boxes
' containing a lot of new millinery
goods, worth about one hundred dollars,
which were entirely consumed
and a largo hole was burned in the
floor under them. His desk and the
walls were badly scorched and the I
entire stock damaged by the smoke, I
to the amount of fully one thousand
dollars, with threo thousand insurance.
Inspecting: the Building:.
Mr. Edward O. M. Condon, of
Washington City, Assistant Inspector
of Government Building3, was in tho
city Wednesday and inspected the
V. S. Court House and Post Office.
He will recommend a complete
overhauling, of the interior of the
building and among other improvements,
tho removal of the lino
of call boxes and drawers, in the
Post Office and placing thorn on a
lino with the general delivery window,
so as to throw that portion of
tho Post Office lobby in the north
west corner of the building in the
the office proper, and give the carriers 5.
and clerks the benefit of the
light from two other large windows. to
Since the introduction of the freo do-livery
system that portion of tho
lobby is no longer needed, and the
additional room on tho inside of tho
office will be a great convenience.

Of a Former Citizen of Tliia
City Keiucinbcrcd by
Tho following notice of tho commemoration
of tho eighty-first birthday
of Mr. Thomas J. Ohesnutt, a
former well-known resident of this
city, is taken from tho Newark, Ohio,
Daily Tribune, of February 18th:
There was an unusual stir last night
among tho members of tho G. A. R.
of the oity.
Inquiry revealed the fact that thoy
had worked up a surprise party. The
object of their friendly attention was
none other than tho aged and venerable
T. J. Ohesnutt, who, though a resident
of this county for only a vear
past, formed tho acquaintance of tho
scholary people of this county and
has made on them a favorablo impression
by his gentlemanly bearing
ana cuitureu mmu.
-He was born in England in the year
1811, and was educated at tho celebrated
seat of learning, Cambridge.
His education was with a view to
fitting him for tho Episcopal ministry,
but he followed his natural bent, that
of teaching and was successful.
In tho year 1830 he removed to this
country and located at Frankfort,
Ky., where he was chosen to the
office of Clerk of the Court of Appeals.
Ho served in that capacity for
thirty years, except such time as ho
was bearing arms in support of tho
Union cause in tho land of his adoption.
His mould of character was
such as to render iiim a typical loyal
Kentuokian, in a laud whore fair
ladies and brave women are the rule.
Well has he earned tho repose which
he enjoys and which always follows a
correct and useful life.
A party of between twenty and
thirty yesterday repaired to the home
of the old gentleman and were cordially
received. A number of them
went at 3 p. m. and the remainder
went on tho special train at 7:30 p. m.
Through thuir spokesman, Major
Edwin Nichols, they presented him
with a cane, and the spokesman, in
behalf of Comrade Wm. Bostwick,
gave him a fine pipe. Ho responded
feelingly, and good cheer reigned
supreme, A number of war songs
were sung: "Rally 'Round the Flag,
Boys," "The Union Forever," &c,
and Comrade George Boggs brought
down the house with an Irish war
A touching letter of congratulation
was alBO read. It wa3 written by Mr.
Ohesnutt's son, Norton, a highly es
teemed Episcopalian minister now
living and working in the .Lord's
vineyard at Albion, 111.
The party returned to the city at an
The following notice of the samo
event is from the Daily Advocate of
tho samo city:
A most enjoyable affair took place
at the residence oi Air. T. J. unesnutt,
on the Oherry Valley road yesterday

of whichi being the 81st anniversary
of the birth of tho above named gentleman.
About 30 of the members
of the G. A. R., headed by their
Grand Commander, Major Edwin
Nichols, and several ladies boarded
the Red-line electric car for Chestnut
Curve. They wore greeted by the
gallant Capfc. J. H. Smith, who had
preceded them early in the after
noon, and it is useless to say that the
surprise was complete and duly appreciated
by the venerable gentleman.
After congratulations were extended
and several patriotic songs
were sung, Major Nichol,s in his
happy manner, presented their
old Comrade Ohesnutt, on behalf of
Lemert Post, with a handsome gold-headed
cano and several other valuable
presents. Tho old gentleman responded
with much feeling in accepting
the samo but soon rallied and
joined in with the "boys" in the
enjoyment of the evening. It was an
evening of rare pleasure long to be
rememoeredby all present, and
so to Comrade Ohesnutt. After
exchanging farewells, tho boys took
their departure for the city. Mr.
Ohesuutt is the oldest member of the
