Much complaint is expressed against tho Super
intendent of the Kennedy's Creek county road
in regard to his failure and long delay of placing
the road In a safe traveling condition. It will
be remembered that the road was placed in the
bands of the court about one year ago which re
sulted in an unjust decision at the time, but
after a thorough and personal investigation by
the County Judge the former decision based on
fallacious testimony was countermanded, re
sulting in the condemnation of the road, and an
order to the Superintendent to await further ac
tion, but patleuce is ceasing to bo a virtuo and
the long deprivation of this much needed road
to the public is becoming a nuisance and many
expressions of impatience are heard at the tardi

THE LATE WILLIAM SCMCKXER.
A Friend Fays a Tribute of Respect to the
"Leaves have their time to fall ; and flowers to
wither at the north wind's breath ; and stars to
set : but all thou hast all seasons for thine own,
William J. Schlckner was born at Wurturabcrg,
Germany, April 13, 1S.J0; died July 11, 1S9S, aged
sixty-eight years, two months, twenty-seven
days. He was uuited in marriage in 1851 to Miss
Mary Skinner, a Fleming County lady, who sur
vives hlu. To this union were born eleven chil
dren, and, a notable thing, all are living.
The deceased emigrated to this country at
the age of fourteen years and had ever since been
an honorable resident of great respectability of
Brown County, Ohio. The circumstances attend
ing his death were sad indeed. He had gone out
to plow in the field and his faithful companion,
seeing the horses with plow attached standing at
a distance from where he was plowing, sent the
granddaughter whom he had raised from an in
fant to learn the condition of affairs. And there
in the furrow laid grandpa dead. What a sym
pathetic scene when mother, daughters and
grandchildren gathered around the lifeless form.
The thought of Mrs. Browning's poem, "Not a
tear over him must fall ; he giveth his beloved
sleep;" but It was father, dear father; could
they help but shed a tear? He had been in as
good health as usual on the fatal morning, here
tofore at times showing symptoms of heart
trouble, but no alarming ones. Although he
had accumulated a competency in life, such that
ho need not work, he could not rid himself of
the industry that Germans are noted for. Mr.
Schlckner was a great Bible reader as his argu
ments even In his dotage plainly showed. Ho
was witty and often his replies to his antagonist
brought forth great applause from those who
waited for his ready answer. He was a liberal
supporter of the church and a charitable man.
He was a member of tho Lutherean church at
Maysville. To sec colored hired hands among
the higher class at his funeral was to know he
made no difference between rich and poor. Ex
Mayor Hill, of Aberdeen, a bosom friend of the
deceased, conducted the funeral services at tho
country residence Wednesday at 10 o'clock a. m.,
reading a funeral discourse and making a touch
ing prayer, after which the I. O. O. F.'s took
charge of the body of the once kind father and
laid it to rest in the silent tomb to wait the call
that shall briug it forth, immortalized and fash
ioned after the image of His own glorious body.
A vast concourse of friends gathered to pay tho
last repect and the floral tributes were many
and beautiful. j
The things that people see are inside of them
and not outside. No two people see the same
thing exactly alike. One woman may look out
at a beautiful landscape and see all tho beauty
and restfullnDss and grandnes that there is in it.
Another one will look out at the same scene and
see nothing. The man who is perfectly well and
vigorous enjoys life to tho full. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery makes people well.
There Isn't anything miraculous about It-It is
the most natural thing in tho world. It simply
puts the digestive organs, the stomach, the liver,
tho bowels, in perfect order and thereby makes
the blood pure and rich. All diseases live and
thrive on Impure blood. Keep a stream of pure,
rich, red blood flowing into a disease spot, and
tho disease will not 6tay. A man lives on rich
pure blood, and the disease dies on it.
