Interesting" Articley Paris Man.
The Lexington Herald of Sunday
contained an excellent-feature article
entitled 4Traction History in Lexing
ton," which was the work of Mr Rob
ert S. Porter, or Paris, who recently
accepted a position as a member of the
reportorial staff of that papar.
The story was illustrated with a
large number of half tone cuts ot the
officials of the traction system, cars
and property and shows clearly the
rapid development of the street car
and traction systems in Lexington and
the surrounding territory.
The feature was one of the most in
teresting that has ever been printed
in that paper and the writer is to be
congratulated upon his efforts. Mr.
Porter is an old experienced newspa
per man and having a thorough knowl
edge of the game is proving himself a
most valuable acquisition to the repor
torial department of the Herald.
February court day was one of the
smallest in many months in point of
attendance, the crowd, being" reduced
on account of the rainy, disagreeable
weather, which was followed by a rag
''ng snow storm. Practically ali morn
ing a steady rain fell which kept the
number that ventured to the city, in
doors most of the day.
Notwithstanding this fact the stock
market was brisk and everything
offered was sold at prices that were
far above the average. The approach
ing season for farm wo rk had the
effect of stimulating the mule mar
ket and the one hundred head that
were'offered met with ready sale.
The demand for work stock was brisk
and good nrices were realized.
The firm ofCaywood & McClintock
disposedgof a numberof mules as Jfol
