The human family has a constant
yearning for a book particularly that
portion of it in Bourbon oouuty. Not
long since, a peculiarly felt want a biographical
sketch of each lawyer in the
county. Then the commoners and other
men of miscellaneous greatness clamored
for something in which to view their
printed biographies, and a history was
tumbled into the aching void. And now
the business men, including everything
from a measurer of silk and lace down to
the rag and old iron singers, not to be
left out among the great lonesome, after
a long season of pining and mopping off
the July and August perspiration, have
had a book added to their libraries a
vade mecum affair for counting room use,
for the simple sum of ten dollars. We
have not examined the book, but we've
heard it severely criticised. We know
not of it's merits. It may be good ij;
may be bad. All who care to buy them,
we feel assured in saying that they can
be supplied at the low sum of ten dollars
and, on a pinch, a few might be had
second-hand, for a smaller sum.
A. Horrible Murder.
A most horrible and atrocious triple
murder was committed Tuesday near
Point Burnside, Ky. on the Cincinnati
Southern railway. Three men, named
Joseph Claiburn and James and Joseph
Randalls, drew their month's pay the day
before, and it was reported that the Randalls
had a large sum from the bank.
They worked on the road and camped in
the woods. Tuesday night Frank Stagle
and an accomplice crept into the camp
and cut off the heads of two of the sleeping
men, and riddled their bodies with
bullets, and partially cut the head off
Claiborne. They then robbed them and
threw the Randall brothers over a cliff
100 feet high, and when about to throw
Claiborne over were frightened off. He
lived long enough to give Stagle's name.
The murderers fled and separated.
was captured Wednesday at
Ky and returned to Point Burnside.
It is reported that a band is organized to
mob him. A large reward will be offered
for his accomplice's capture. The murdered
men were well-to-do and quite popular.
At present there is quite a controversy
going on in the papers about the killing
of Gen. John Morgan, It is generally
conceded that private Andy Campbell, of
the 13th Tennessee killed him, while
stooping under a grape vine to escape
from the yard of Mrs. Williams' residence,
but the after life of Campbell is in
dispute. One writer says that Campbell
after being promoted to a Secend Lieutenancy,
became a debauched bar-room
loafer and was killed in an Arkansaw grocery.
Another writer says he still lives,
and is in Indiana, As the former
comes from one of his army colleagues,
it is to be most credited. The
woman who piloted the Federals to
headquarters, is now filling a Government
clerkship at Washington.
The storm begins early in Virginia.
The sky is aheady overcast and the rag-
ged edges of black clouds are sweeping
the ground. Mahone is serene. He
claims with apparent confidence that the
chan( es of victory in the coming election
are on his side ; but it is to be observed
all the same that the little Senator de
votes himself vigorously to the work of
the campaign just as if he had graye
doubts about the result. The leading
Straightouts have gone furiously into the
fight, with a determination to win.
Judging iroAi present appearances, Old
Virginia will be sadly torn up this fall.
It will not be surprising if Congress at
the coming session embarks in the
wholesale investigation. Congressional
investigations, for political purposes
only, are usually unprofitable.
Valuable time is wasted, to say nothing
of the money thrown aAUiy. No doubt
the Democratic leaders can best serve
their party by doing the regular work of
the session quietly, and keeping clear of
all jobs and questionable schemes.
