feeble health for the past several

began upon his career as a teacher.
He was principal of the Greenville
Presbyterian Academy, Muhlenburg

of Latin and Greek at Stewart Col
lege, now Southwestern University,

professor of Latin, civil history and
metaphysics at Kentucky University,
now Translvania College.
In 1869 Dr. Patterson became
president of the old Agricultural
and Mechanical College, now the

DOG BITES BOY
Robert Cahal, son of Anderson
Cahal, was severely bitten on the leg
'and face by a bull dog said to be-
'long to a man named Lavin, resid-
' ing on the Longo farm, near Paris.
, Young Cahal had gone to the farm
'early in the morning to assist Mr.
'Longo 'in gathering a crop of plums.
The dog, which had previously been
confined in the home during the day,
in some way got loose, and rushing
out, sank his teeth in young Cahal's
leg and face.
I Farm hands beat the dog off, and
word was sent to Paris. Dr. A. H.
Keller and Mr. Cahal came out and
took the injured lad to Lexington,
where a consultation was held with
other physicians. It was decided to
withhold treatment for a time, while
the dog was being kept under sur
veillance. ELECTION COMMISSIONERS TO

HARDMAN AND FOX HELD WITH
The examining 'tril of Scobee
Hardman, formerly of Austerlitz,
this county, charged with the mur
der of Leon Renaker, in Winchester,
several weeks ago, was held in Win
chester, Wednesday. The defense of
fered no testimony. After the pros
ecution had closed the case for the
Commonwealth Judge J. Smith
Hayes, attorney for the defense,
spoke briefly, stating that most of
the testimony that had been offered
in the hearing was merely gossip,
and that no real evidence had been
produced that would incriminate
Hardman. At the conclusion of the
trial Judge H. C. Scrivener held
Hardman to the September grand
jury without bail.
The arrest of Reese Fox, who is
alleged to have been Hardman's
companion on the night of the mur
der, was another phase of the matter
that developed. Reese Fox was ar
rested on a warrant sworn out by
Walter Renaker, brother of the mur
dered man, after Hardin Smith, a
ferryman, testified that was one of
the two men, his belief being that
Fox was the other, who had crossed
the river at Boonesboro on his ferry
the night of the murder. Fox was
also held without bail to the Sep
tember grand jury.
Emory Kimbell, of Bourbon coun
ey, brother of Hardman's divorced
wife, stated that he had been with
Mrs. Douglas and that Hardman had
been with Mrs. Renaker in the Aus
terlitz neighborhood about a year
ago. Kimbell stated that Hardman
had remarked to him on one occa
sion that to kill a man was noth
ing. He declared that Hardman had
said it would be easy to rob the
bank at Clintonville, and that a man
was a fool to work. Kimball also
testified that Hardman told him that
he liked Mrs. Renaker, but did not
have any use for Mr. Renaker, and
he did not see how he was going to
get around it.
Dan Smith and Mr. Haley, of
Bourbon, testified that they had
seen Mrs. Douglas, Mrs. Renaker,
Hardman and Kinmball together on
a road near Austerlitz, within the
Judge Scobee on Wednesday night
issued an order that no one but
members of his family and attorneys
might see Fox except in company
with Jailer Carroll Azbill.
The order as issued as a result
of a reputed communication between
Hardman and Fox, through an al
leged "industrious friend," who is
claimed to have visited the cells of
each several times in the late after
noon and night Wednesday.
Fox proclaims his innocence.
