Knott will be Bwornin as Governor
of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It
would be folly for us to add words of a
eulogium character to his national or local
fame. We will be content to simply
say that the proud old Commonwealth
will have a Governor whom she will be
proud of one whom we can safely cite
as the peer of any of the thirty-seven
States in the Union one who will be re
spected both home and abroad.
To him shall we look with confidence
during the next four years as the ruler
of the. whole people, with an abiding
faith that he knows his duty, and that
he'll perform it well. He has seen tho er
ror of precedents, and knows the will of
the'people, and will rule accordingly not
harshly, but well.
He has our utmost confidence thats
all we can give. He needs no advice,
therefore it would be presumptious for
U3, even anyone to offer suggestions.
Our heart is with him in his reign as
Chief Magistrate we know that he will
not cause a pang of regret to pierce it

Moses is said to have made mistakes, and
many of them have not been clearly refuted,
to the minds of many. It cannot
be denied that Governor Blackburn
made mistakes mistakes of the head,
and not of the heart, let us hope. He
was too good at heart to rule from a moral
standpoint ; he was overbalanced with
good. He made many mistakes, but they
were all on the side of mercy. We ad
mire him for his goodness of heart, yet
we condemn him in behalf of justice ;
but we forgive him freely, and give him
our best wishes that his private life may
be one ot peace sweet, silvery peace,
and that his sincerity of heart at know

be his whole duty, will not per.nit one

Bill Nye's Hornets.
Last fall I desired to add to mr rare collection
a large hornet's nest. I had an
embalmed tarantula and her porcelain-lined
nest, and I desired to add to these
the gray and airy home of the hornet. I
procured one of the large size after cold
weather and hung it in my cabinet by a
String. When warm weather come something
reminded me of it. I think it was
a hornet. He jogged my memory in some
way ana called my attention to iu.
Memory is not located where I thoughtit
was. It seems as though whenever he
touched me he awakened a memory a
Warm memory with a red place around
Then some more hornets came and began
to rake up old personalities. I remember
that one of them lit on my upper
lip. He tought it was a rosebud. When
be went away it looked like a gladiolus
bulb. I wrapped a wet sheet around it to
take out the warmth and reduce the
swelling so that I could go through the
folding doors and tell my wife about it.
Hornets lit all over me and walked
around on my person. I did not dare to
scrape them off, because they are so sensitive.
You have to be yery guarded in
your conduct toward a hornet.
I remember once when I was watching
the busy little hornet gathering honey
and June bugs from the bosom of a rose,
years ago, I stirred him up with a club,
more as a practical joke than anything
else, and he came and lit on my sunny
hair that was when I wore my own hair
and he walked around through my
gleaming tresses quite awhile, making
tracks as large as a watermelon all over
my head. If he hadn't run out of tracks
my head would haye looked like a load
of summer squashes. I remember I had
to thump my head against thesmoke house
in Older to smash him, and I had to comb
him out with a fine comb and wear a
waste-paper basket two weeks for a hat.
Much has been said of the hornet, but
he has an odd, quaint way after all that
is forever new.
