Savory Tit-Bits From Cynthiana.
Society in Cynthiana and Harrison county
has been recently jostled up over several
first-class scandals. The statement recently
published in the Enquirer to the effect that
Felix Barbee had married Miss Bents, ft very
amiable young lady whom he had 'wronged,
is now doubted by many, as Barbee has ever
since been living by himself in Catlettsburg,
and the young lady is supposed to be in Cincinnati,
where she is soon to become a
mother. This was a cruel, crushing blow to
the Bents family, who are now preparing to
sell out and leave the place in consequence
of the disgrace that has befallen them. A
few of the high-toners, though sorry for the
young lady, are rejoicing that the "chickens
have come to the roost" of young Barbee, on
account of the airing he gave some probably
innocent yet suspicioned parties when correspondent
of the iinquircr several year ago.
A still later sensation has been developed
in the separation of Joseph McClintock and
wife, who mingled in the best society, it is
said, on account of the husband lavishing
undue affections on one not entitled to the
charms that were hers by mutual vows before
high heaven in matrimonial rites.
And still another a handsome widow a
widow with money as well as weeds, who, it
is alleged, left there some time ago to accept
a situation in a prominent business house in
a neighboring city, as foreman of the institution,
has returned to the rural shades of
Harrison, the victim of a misplaced confidence,
smarting with the pangs of a deeply
lacerated heart, and still worse, the loss of
her little roll valued at several thousand
dollars of cool, hard-earned cash.
Thb directors of the Kentucky Central
railroad held a meeting Thursday and discussed
matters pertaining to the improvements
on the new extension. Gen. J. Echols
resigned as Vice-President, and Mr. Riggs
Cunningham, of Cincinnati, was elected to
fill the vacancy. The proposition for the
location of the machine shops at this placo
was discussed, and it was decided in view of
the cholera epidemic that is likely to invade
this entire country in '81, and it's disastrous
effects it would be wholly impracticable to
entertain the question of moving the shops
befora '85, but every assurance was given Mr.
Alexander, director from this place, that
Paris would certainly bo the favored spot
when the proper time arrived.
During the summer of '81, whn the Rev.
Geo. O. Barnes was evangelizing along the
Big Sandy, a mountain dude named Savage,
fell desperately in love with Miss Marie, and
dogged her foot-steps where e'er she went.
One day in Miss Marie's absence, her father
intercepted one of her letters from Savage,
which was read and the following answer
'penned on the back of it:
Catlettsburg, June 1, '81.
Dear Mr. Savage: Praise the Lord and forget
Marie. Yours in Sweet Jesus,
GEO. O. BARNES.
The amphitheater of the Bourbon Fair is
nearly completed and everything will soon
be in readiness for the fair which begins
Sept. 4th. W. A. Parker, the Secretary of
tne institution, has sent out complimentary
tickets and a 52.50 advertisement to each of
twenty newspapers within a given radius,
thus showing that nothing is left undone in
way of drumming up a large attendance.
Mark our words: it will be larger attended
than ever before.
