Io the early jrray of a February even
ing a mall party, consisting of myself,
might have been seen wending its way
toward the railway station at Louisville,
Kentucky. One may enter tbe sleeper
there at 0 o'clock p. m. and at half-past
2 a. m. he will start for Cincinnati.
Taking with me a small fragment of
river water to use when I get home for
scouring knives, I paid the bill at me
'otel and went to the depot. The depot
of the Louisville and Nashville railroad
is a massive pilo, coating upwards of $64
in money. It is built in the Modoc style
of architecture and faces both ways, like
an Independent paper.
Meals may be had there at nil hours
and baggage checked to all parts of the
world. Sleeping car berths and pie are
furnished at the shortest notice, and you
can get information or victuals there
while you wait. My oar was made up,
so I knocked ont a few brains, disrobed
and retired. My window gazed upon the
lunch room, and so I could lie and watch
people its they came in, nestled upagainst
the counter astride a tall stool and basely
betrayed their stomachs. It was rare
sport. Sometimes a woman would spring
gayly upon the stool, and, wrapping her
heels around those of the stool, would in
quire the prico of a cup of tea, and if not
too high she would buy some in isolated
cases. A man generally orders about
twice as much as he cau eat, and by his
manner says. "Darn the price. I reckon
I will have enough to eat as long as my
money holds out."
People who run lunch counters are not
generally very long lived. I only knew
one of these people to linger to a great age,
and he had his meals brought to him.
Some kinds of food are improved by age,
hut not all. Among those that are not
impervious to atmospheric influences or
tbe extremes of heat and cold are eggs,
mushrooms and waffles. Celery also suf
fers somewhat, like a senatorial election,
by exposure. It does not thrive under
such circumstance so much as a ballet,
but pines awuy and gets coal dust on it,
and loses its ambition and hangs over
the edgenf tli glass like a love sick angle
worm. In 1778 Capt. Thomas Bullitt, who was
called a son of a gun by a Kentucky
humorist, who only lived long enough to
ejaculate. ''Adieu, kind friends, I'm going
home," discovered the city of Louisville.
Ky., at the mouth of Beargrasa creek at
the Ohio falls, and he could not have
discovered a better town if he had tried.
The water was very low at that season of
the year and of about the consistency of
a farm. Though the water was low the
price of whisky was almost equally low,
and so the party thinned out the water
with the hitter. It gently exhilarated
them ami made them glad they came.
There are now 273.000 people in Louia
vill. . I might say. mostly colonels, but I
will leave that joke for the use of the
Urge army of bright men who were first
to think of it. When Capt. Bullitt dis
covered Ijouisville there was not a de
cent hotel in the place. Now there are a
great quantity of them. The following
year a house was built, but the boom
was a kind of sickly effort and lots were
Louisville was named for Louis XVI.
The above will give the reader an idea
of Louisville at about the beginning of
the present century. The building with
the flag on top is the Oalt bouse. Mr.
Henry Wat tenon has just gone inside the
door, softly humming to himself :
I Am a Pirate Kin.
ilo will bo hack in a few moments.
The large building on the opposite aide
of the street is a general store kept by a
gentleman who is since deceased. He
kept hides, pelts and molasses; also real
estate, ice cream and feathers. He sold
ammunition. Iioarhound candy and hard
ware, gent-,' neckwear, cedar posts,
honey, plastering hair, straw hats, di
mension lumber, suspenders, timothy
seed, coffins and salt mackerel. He also
kept the poatoffice and took in washing.
He advertised hard cider, playing cards
and embalming while you wait. The other
houses in the cut are occupied by Many
Citizens, Taxpayer, Justice, Old Sub
scriber. Veritas, etc., etc.
The high fence in the right foreground
is designed to keep out the Indians, at

Indians, of course, retarded tha early

state. Kentucky is M doubt a choice
state. Nature did much for her, and
Henry Wntterson has not fooled away
his time either.
Proctor Knott is a feature of Kentucky
which I mint not forget as I hurriedly
pass along. Bi would have been more
influential if it had not crept out that he
was an humorist. No man can be respect
ed quite so miirli after he has shown
symptom of tins kind. Mr. Knott made
a funnv speech on Ouluth once, and now

Til K SELF MADE WIDOWER KEPT TALLY
OF TBE OA MF
Governor Knott said once, in an ad
dress in Kentucky to the graduates of
the State Agricultural and Mechanical
college, at Lexington: "When I consider
the superior intelligence and refinement
of the presence in which I have the
honor to appear. I very seriously mis
trust my ability either to contribute to
your entertainment or to add to your
present stock of information by a dis
cussion of any subject whatever. De
scended, however, from an ancestry who
made their homes on the 'Dark and
Bloody Ground' when it was a savage
wilderness with danger and death lurk
ing on every hand; horn upon the bosom
of the commonwealth which they in
their humble sphere assisted to create
while the tomahawk and the scalping
knife were gleaming around them; in
spired with a passionate pride in her
prosperity and her prestige from my
earliest youth; the recipient of the meet
distinguished honor within the gift of
her generous people, and standing be
neath the shadow of this splendid insti
tution of learning the offspring of her
enlightened bounty and the object of her
fostering care I feel that I may at least
speak to you of Kentucky, of her re
sources, of her progress and her possi
bilities." And he did so. He started out from
that and made a good speech with
thoughts in it. He spoke of the fixed
carbon and volatile combustible matter
in the coal, and said the Iron ore of Ken
tucky had iron peroxide in it in large
In the interior of Kentucky one still
finds some odd characters, and the plain,
unostentatious manner of administering
justice attracts some attention whenever
it is brought to public attention. A
friend of mine went into that country
once to report the preliminary examina
tion of a man who had killed his wife bv
means of a broad ax. The. reporter had
an all night drive, and when he got to
the school house where the trial was to
take place he found no one inside but
the headless woman lying on a door.
After a while he went hark of the school
house and found the sons pitching hone
shoes with the justice of the peace, while
the unruffled and self made widower
was calmly keeping tally of the game by
cutting notches In a shingle.
Not long ago a colored man named
Monroe Wilkinson killed a man at a pic
nic in order to give variety to an other
wise monotonous programme. He was
found guilty and sentenced to be hanged.
Tbe execution was to take place within
an incloaure, but the obliging sheriff had
it In a valley, so that a whole county
could ait on the hillside and sec it. It is
hardly necessary to say that be was re
elected. Nearly 10,000 people came to witness
tbe great show. They came on foot and
on horseback, from everywhere, till
they covered the hillside and were like
the sands of the sea for multitude. Lem
onade stands sprang up as if by magic,
and merry-go-rounds got there from the
four cornen of the earth. Popcorn, eat
ing apples and wax for chewing purposes
were for sale everywhere. The balloon
man was there, likewise the man with
the machine for showing how much one
can lift without injuring himself. Every
where poor, tired farm hands who need
ed rest were testing their strength till
their eyes looked like soiled door knobs
or poached eggs in a saucer of stewed
Photographs of the murderer were also
for sale with his autograph. His brother
had walked fifty miles to plead with the
governor for a pardon, but it did not
Euclid C. Cooksey, a bright young re
porter, was sent to do the execution for
his paper. He and Mr. Morningstar,
another reporter, sat up with the con
demned man. Friends decided that re
ligious services should be held over the
murderer. Mr. Morningstar was selected
to lead in prayer. He hod never doue so
before, but he was a good reporter, and
when he was assigned for anything al
ways covered the field, ne still says
that, considering his lack of preparation,
he thinks he did pretty well.
A fresh reporter tried to interview the
prisoner while the service was going on,
hut Mr. Cooksey, who was reading a
chapter from Genesis at the time, paused
and told the young man that he was not
The sheriff then came in to say a few
words to the prisoner. He said: ' Mon
roe, you know that 1 would never hang
you in the world at the figures I get
from the county if I didn't huve to do it.
I've got to do it or lose the nomination
next year. I'm a friend to you, Monroe,
and I ruck on I've alwavs treated you
"Yea, sail, that's what you has." As
the morning sun lighted up the tieautiful
hillside and scattered a show er of glory
through the trees upon the blue grass
turf beneath, it showed n busy scene on
the grassy slopes of the natural amphi
theatre. Tall youug men with HUM
spattered chins and budding whiskers
were pitching rings for n cane or having
tintypes of themselves and their Hitan-
derm taken with the gallows in the back
ground. Mothers brought with them
little sunburnt offspring that had only
arrived in Kentucky the rjreius day.
Dark red cookie sold for a cent apiece,
A tall tree giving Tie upon the (Ebola
jail yard brought two dollars.
All was life and animation. The sheriff
had acquired a comfortable jag, but it
had not succeeded in stealing away his
brain. In fact he was quietly chuckling
to himself as he imagined the jag grop
ing in the attic of his massive skull,
knocking the skin off its knuckles and
cussing as it vainly sought for the sheriff's
Filially the hour arrived. The prisoner
was brought on the scaffold. He oieesed
the hand of the reporter and, bunting
into tean, presented him with an election
cigar. The newspaper men then united
in singing a little topical song, of which
1 am the author and which is designed
more especially for executions by elec
tricity, beginning as follows:
I'm sorry I got Insulate.
But I'm going home to dynamo.
It is a plaintive song, ei linently fitted
for executions in New Yor and has had
a great run.
The time now arrived for the execution ,
and the sheriff asked Mr. Cooksey if he
would be good enough to -ead the death
warrant. Mr. Cooksey sai i it would not
"Well, I'll deputise you ben," said the
"Why don't you read it yourself?"
"Well, for two reasons. In the tint
place I did not bring my g asses and in
the second place, if you w on't let it go
any further, I can't read an how." Cook
sey says if there had been no reporten
there the prisoner woul 1 have been
obliged to read the death varrant him
self. Nothing pains a man who is unused to
appearing in public and wi o has had no
ca utionary training, like ) avingto read
his own death warrant to a big Chautau
qua gathering like that anc hare two or
three ignorant people yell "Louder!"
Death is at all times mora or less dis
agreeable at the hands of the law, but
someone ought to be at hat d to bike the
burden of the literary exi rcises off (he
hands of the doomed man.
