The Democracy ol Mason County aro requested
to meet in mass convention at the court house
in the city ol Maysvllle Saturday, May 29th, 1SU7,
at 2 o'clock p.m., standard time, for the purpose
of selecting delegates to attend a State conven
tion to be held in Frankfort Juno 2nd, 1897, for
tho purpose of nominating a candidate for Clerk
of tho Court of Appeals to ho voted for at the
next November (1S97) election. A full attendance
is requested. John W. Alexander,

warmer; northerly winds, becoming variable.
TnE anti-mob law should bo promptly
and rigidly enforced. If a few turnpike
raiders are sent to tho penitentiary the
rest will stop their lawless work.
The turnpikes were not built in a day
nor can they be made free in a day. The
lawless gang who are bringing reproach
upon their State should remember this,
and bo patient.
Some indication of tho excessive im
portations which are now being made, is
given by the following figures, showing
tha total importations for April in the
April, 1804 500,090,037
April, 1805 08,749,958
April, 1800 58,049,507
April, 1897 101,305,131
Tho customs receipts for the present
month indicate that the May importa
tions will be nearly as heavy as those of
April, which were the largest in the his
tory of the country. If the foreigners pay
the tax, why should our importers be in
such a great hurry to bring all these
goods over before the now tariff law goes
into effect ? Tho simple fact of the mat
ter is that the importers will get rich oil
of the people of this country on the itn
portations now being made.

Raiders Still at Their Lawless Work.
Two moro toll-gates have been de
stroyed near Sardis, and all the toll-gates
between Cynthiana and Carlisle wore
raided Saturday night, the gates removed
and the gato-keepera warned not to col
lect any moro toll. It is stated that the
gate kept by Mrs. Feeback, a widow, a
short distance from Millersburg, was
bio .vn up with dynamite, after bIig and
her furniture had been removed by the
raiders. This was tho third time tho
raiders had visited this gate.

An Effort to Tarn Judge Hatching Down,
Hat It Wasn't Successful.
Tho Republican county convention
Monday afternoon attracted a big crowd
to the court house. It had been noised
about, and was generally known, that an
effort would be made to turn Judge
Hutchins down in his race for re-election,
and many of those present had gone to
"see the fun." A large number of Dem
ocrats wore on-lookers.
Chairman Mathews of tho Executive
Committee called the convention to order.
The official call of the convention was
read, and it was announced that tho
total number of delegates entitled to
seats was 51, and 20 votes would be nec

DIAZ A GOOD RULER.
Prosperity of Mexico Under the Intelligent
Guidance of Its President.
Harper's Round Table.
Even to one as familiar with the swift
developments of parts of our West as with
the more conservative growth of our East,
it is surprising to watch the gait of almost
every Mexican city in municipal improve
ments. Modern waterworks to replace
the fine old Spanish aqueducts ; modern
sewerage to replace -the street sinks of
centuries: modern lighting, modern
transit, modern health departments;
public buildings better than our average
towns of tho like population think they
can afford; splendid prisons, markets,
hospitals, asylums, training schools
these are some of the things the "des
potism " of Diaz is planting through the
length and breadth of the county. As
for schools, it sometimes made me smile,
but oftener turned my eyes to moist, to
note the perfect mania to have them and
to have them of tho best. Every State
capital has its f reepublic ''model schools,"
on which it lavishes a wealth of love and
money, and the Slate earnestly follows
its lead. There is now in Mexico no
hamlet of 100 Indians, I believe, which
has not its free public schools.
This summer (1800) has seen a radical
change. Hitherto the schools of the
republic had been in charge of the mu
nicipalities, the Federal' government
aiding in their support with about' $1,
000,000 a year. In July the central gov
ernment took direct charge of every
public school in Mexico. This is to
secure homogeneity in tho system. For
the men and women now in charge
of the schools of Mexico I must admit
that I never met a more faith'ful and en
thusiastic corps, and they are, on the
average, very fairly fitted for their work.
In every State there are normal schools,
generously endowed by the government,
for the fit training of these teachers and
the attendance is encouragingly large.
There are also countless industrial
schools, art schools, professional schools
and the like, not to mention, tho host of
private schools, of which somo are en
tirely admirable. ?he teaching of relig
ion in public schools is absolutely pro
hibited. "That," said President Diaz to
me, " is for the family to do."
THE HEALTHFUL ORANGE.
On an Averago England Consumes Aboat
20,000,000 in a Week.
Oranges are now at their best, and will
continue so until the balmy days of June,
when they get scarce and drop out of the
list of popular fruits for the season. They
are wonderful berries in their many ways.
Their juice resists frost more than that of
any other fruit grown, and if ever they
can be frozen at all it requires all the in
genuity of man to do it. Live on sweet
oranges entirely for two whole days and
watch the results. The fruit juices at
once begin their beneficent action. They
aro refreshing, cleansing and Cooling. At
tho end of two days there will bo a won
derful reduction of animal 'heat. Tho
bands will feel cold to other people, but
tho effect to head and nilnd will be a
The flesh of the sweet orange is exceed
ingly nutritious, and its juice possesses
much valuable properties. Out of everv
100 parts, 80 consists of pure distilled
water, and the rest is made up of sugar,
potash, citric acid and other constituents.
A very refreshing draught can be made
from the sweet or sour varieties by press
ing their juice into a tumbler of water.
Medicinally tho bitter oranges' are tho
most useful ; they are more cooling than
tho sweet, and on that account are
largely used in fevers, especially in conti
nental cities. From tho present time till
June no fruit is comparable to the orange,
and its grateful juices can not bo too
freely partaken of, especially iu tho earl
ier hour of tho day, I might hero point
out. that, taken alone or undiluted, the
juices of unripe oranges are undoubtedly
indigestible, and should bo avoided;
whereas, tho sugar juices of tho fully
ripened fruit are so light that directly
taken they are at once absorbed into tho

D. HUNT & SON.
Tho Report Now is That Ho Was Dragged
and Taken From the Frank
Louisville, Ky., May 24. It is now
believed that Thomas Sinclair the con
vict who left tho Frankfort penitentiary
last Thursday morning, was kidnaped.
Tho police here are working on that
theory. -Sinclair was one of the principal
witnesses in the recently exposed steal
made by lumber dealers in having checks
raised by Convict Powell, and it would
have fjeen to their interest to have Sin
clair out of the way.
Sinclair wrote a postal card to Warden
Hancock, in which he said that ho did
not know how he left Frankfort ; that he
was taken from Frankfort to Versailles
by someone in a buggy. He said further
that he was going to Nashville, Tenn.,
and would see Governor Bradley there.
E. H. Hancock, son of Warden Han
cock, is in the city and says that he be
lieves that Sinclair was drugged - and
taken from the penitentiary.
Young Hancock says that his own life
had been threatened in connection with
the lumber steal, he being the only other
witness except Sinclair. He says that a
young man in Frankfort has offered to
If Warden Hancock isn't able to keep
men from going into tne penitentiary!and
drugging and carrying off the convicts,
he ought to resign. The above story is
a rather gauzy one.
