Aa the reader ia perhaps nlrcmlv atrare,
th foregoinc twenty eix chapters were
written and published eonie jretra ago
in the Owensboro Shield. It itsa at that
timo inlended to notice the families of
various pioneer settlers of the county who
remained permanent citizen., and whwe
liofterity now form a large portion of our
population, and Mill perpetuate in vari
ous degrees the moral and social virtues
of their ancestors, for a long life ol ob
servation has cotivinced the writer of
these sketches that moral, as well ne
phyii-al virtues nud vices are hereditary.
and that while we recojnite this (act in
raising our stock, we almost entirely ig

The publication, for reasons unnecessa
ry to explain, has long teen Euepemled,
and although the writer now attempts to
continus these sketches of families, it
must be imperfect, aa many incidents then
vivid in his memory have laded by age,
and th heads of tliofe families now
slumber in death and can furoish no
Perhaps among th most numerous de
scendants of early settlers, is the familj
of Benuetu. Old John Bennett, (called
Governor perhaps from his numerous
family) with his eons Jeffries, John,
Samuel, Iteuben, Asa, Titus, Obed and
George, were among the first settlers on
So Creek. The old man and most of his
sons were industrious, frugal, sober, hon
est, farmers, and the descendants of the
Bennett family ar now intermarried and
mixed with most of our population, and
with few exceptions perpetuate the vir
tues of their nuceetors. During the war
or 1612, Reuben Bennett was, by senior
ity, entitled to tne office of Lieutenant
in the company which went to New Or
leans, but when the regiment render-
routed at Henderson, by some legerde
main of superior officers, a more pert,
showy youth was placed over his head.
but Reuben was not lo be bulldozed in
that way, and instead of resigning and
coming home, he went on as a high
private. At New Orleans Ids regiment
happened to be among that Kentucky
force which General Jackson branded
with inglorious flight, and in which the
young Lieutenant who had supplanted
him, was said to have made 2:40 speed,
but Reuben was the last man lo leave,
and gallantly bor off a wounded officer
under the Are of the enemy.
J tie i'reet.ylerian and Methodist
camp meetings were located for many
years in the Xo Crek neighborhood, and
the hospitality of the .Bennstt family is
still fresh in the memory of many ear
v Ivors or those days.
Th next most numerous family is that
of Stevens. John, William, Thomas,
Richard and Henry, all settled in this
county about 1800. They also had two
sitters; one married to John Duke, and
the other to Iligglnson Belt. Bicbard
removed West at aa early period; all the
otbtra lived and died citizens of the
county, sober, honest, liberal and indus
trious farmsrs. Thomas was remarkable
for his portly form, and beaming, benev
olent countenance, and was class leader
in his church from time unknown, and
so much was he esteemed that he had at
times to serve io that capacity in two or
more classes at the same time. From
the extreme longevity of "Uncle Henry,"
(as he was called) and his sister, Mrs
Fa't, thsy are still fresh in the memory
of every one. His strong sense and
stronger will made him firm as a rock
and obstinate as a mule. He always
sought the right, and when be thought
he hftd found it, like Davy Crocket, he
went ahead; hbnesty, frugality, benevo
lence and industry were the rales of his
life, which was prolonged in unusual
physical and mental vigor loan extreme'
l( old age.
The writer has but an indistinct recoli
lection of the head of the Render family.
A large, portly old gentleman, silvered
over with grey, riding a fat horse, is aa
faraa his recollection extends. George,
Robert, and Joshua, were his sons and
the early settlers of those
once thrifty farm in the vicinity
of the Render and.JXclIenry coal mines
They were all strict members of the Bap
tist church, industrious, honest and
jieaccable members of society. Colonel
Johua Render died at about middle age,
leaving a large family of children, all of
whom so far as known, are doing well,
George Render, the oldest son, wais a
preacher, well accepted where he 'was
known, but spent most of his time on hi
farm, and only preached on such suitable
times as occurred, receiving no pay or
salary from th churches, he was a man
of remarkable strength and melody of
voice, which at times were pleasing and
enchanting to the hearer. The following
story used to be told of an old sister's de
scription of one of his sermons: "Well,
sister H ," said a neighbor, "did you hear
brother Render preach last Sunday?"
"Yes indeed I did." "Well, what lor a
sermon did you have?" "Oh, a most
excellent one." "What was the text?"
"Woll, now, I don't remember the text,
but it was one of the best sermons I ever
.heard." "Well what was the subject ?"'
"Well, now, I can't tell you that, but I
do believe it was the best sermon I ever
heard, it had such heavenly tone to it"
His children, so far as recollected, all
died early in life, and Green and George
Render and Rev. James Austin, his only
graudchildreu, rauk among our best
citizens. Robert Render would have
been a model citizen in any community ;
though moJest .and unoasuiiiiug almost
to a fault, he was a man of unusual good
sense and sound judgment. He was sel
dom passed' by when a juror, road vie.vr,
commissioner, or arbitrator was needed
in his vicinity. His good practical
sense and scrupulous hoursty always
pointed him out aa the man and few
men were more interesting when engaged
in a social fireside chat He left a large
circle of descendants, none of whom it is
hoped will ever tarnish the namo of so
good a man.

John L. Seaton in Cynthiana News:
Thirty six years ago ihis fall, I met a
young man in Michigan, who had re
cently come from Scotland. He was
walking along an inland lake; was poor
and unknown and but coarsely clad, with,
1 remember a cheap hog skin cap on his
head. I afterwards sat in school with
that lad. II paid close attention to his
studies; won the esteem of his teacher,
who spoke to the village merchant about
his eteady scllolnr. He went into that
store; proved honest and capable. In
two years he accepted a clerkship in a
large Nw York bouse at a fine salary.
In eight years more be went west, to
Wisconsin, and opened up business for
himself was temperate in all his habits;
never drank whisky, gambled or "dealt"'
in cards; and when we met in 1865, he
was a hanker, lie was twica elected to
the Legislature; made State Senator, and j
then Treasurer of his State in '73-4. He
traveled extensively in Europe and Asia;
held audience with tho Emperor of Ger
many and Queen Victoria; visiled Pales-
tin and the city of Jerusalem. Re
lumed to Milwaukee, and went into bus
iness once more. He was elected presi
dent of the chamber of commerce, and
on the 1 1th day of the month he was
nominated for Governor of his State the
Hon. William S. Smith.
Twenty-seven years ago Ihis winter, I
was teaching school, sixty mile west of
Chicago, in DeKalb county, Illinois,
where I became acquainted with aScotch
family. They were also poor, but very
respectable by that I mean they were
good, sober, industrious, moral people.
They had a son named John, who helped
bis father all day on the farm and at
night he studied in th chimney corner
by fire-light to improve his mind. He
did not have the time or the means to at
tend a frivolous hop or a country shin
dig. He soon became a good scholar
laugbt ecliool several years in Tennessee;
went to Chicago; studied law; went into
the army as a private, and came out a
general; was sent to the legislature -
made lieutenant-governor, and at last be-
cam e the chief executive of the fifth
State in the Union. I refer to the Hon.
John L. Beveridge.
Twenty-five years since a poor boy
lived near Ruddle's Mills, in Bourbon
county, Kentucky. His mother died
when be was' very young, and he was left
to scuffle for himself. He went with his
father to Dry Ridge, Grant county, Ken
tucky, where he attended the poor
schools of that day, but he had ambition.
He kept out of the company of young
men who load themselver with pistols and
bad whisky. Shortly afterwards went
into an office to prepare his mind to com
prehend the great principles that underlie
the honorable and honest practice of law,
and the most popular man to-day in the
Denncratic party, Governor Hendricks
only beat that gentleman for Oovernor
by eight hundred votes. I refer to the
Hon. Thomas Brown, of Indianapolis.
Thirty years since a lad went from
Fleming county, Kentucky, lo try his
fortune in the city, amid the busy marts
of trade of him I know but little except
that be was very punctual to keep his
word in all business transactions. On
Sabbath he went to church where I have
seen him for ten nights in succession.
He .prospered in business, had a large
and liberal mind and was the principal
projector and promotor of the Great
Southern railway to Chattanooga; was
made mayor of Cincinnnti, and was, a
few day ago, made Democratic Governor
of the third Stale in th Union the Hon.
R. M. Bishop.
Ten years since I went one cold, blus
tery Sabbath afternoon to a Sunday
school for poor outcast children. Over
twelve hundred were present After
some singing that I have never heard
equaled, a quiet, middle aged man sit
ting in the rear of the room was called
on to speak to those children, who got
food and clothes aa pay for attending the
school. He told them our Lord was
born in a stable in a manger; that they
must love Jesus, becauso he loved little
children ; that they must obey their par
ents and teachers; be truthful and hon
est, and be always busy in doing good.
That modest man who spok ao tenderly
to those little folks, is to-day President
of the United States.

We have been permitted to copy the
following extract from a lettir written
about the SOth of August by a citizen of
Texas to his brother living iu Kelson
county. Nelson County Record.
"1 saw in the Nelson County Record an
article copied from a Dallas paper warn
ing emigrants not to come to Texas to
go back. It ia true, and I would join
the chorus and echo "go back.'' I have
not had enough rain since about the 1st
of June to run a barrel of water off of my
house, all put together, and not enough
at any one time to lay the dust good.
Slock water is scarcer now than it has
been at any one time since I came to the
State, eight years ago. All railroad
towns are ororstocktd with tramps and
emigrants, and there is not enough made
in the county to supply the demands. 1
learn from a lady who live at Fort
Worth, some two hundred miles west,
that the people are on the point of
starvation. Th grasshoppers eat up
everything, evtn the grass on th prairie.
The peopl have to go from twenty to
forty miles for hay to feed their stock.
The mercury stands from 90 to 100 de-.
green through the day, and the nights
almost cold enough for frost. We have
no dews at all."
A Cheerful Face.!
Carry the radiance of your soul in your
face. Let th world have the benefit of
it. Let your cheerfulness be felt for good
wherever you are, and let your smiles be
scattered like sunbeams "on the just as
well as the unjust." Such a disposition
will yield a rich reward, for its happy ef
fects will come to you and brighten your
moments of thought. Cheerfulness
makes the mind clear, gives tone to
thought, and grace and beauty to th
countenance. Joubert says: "When
you give, give with joy, smiling.''
Smiles are little things, cheap articles
to be fraught with so many blessings,
both to the giver and the receiver
pleasant little ripples to watch as w
stand on the shore ol every day life.
These are the higher and better respon
ses of nature to the emotion of the soul.
Let the children have the benefit of thtm
thoee little ones who need the sunshine
of the heart to educate them, and vould
find a level for their buoyant nature in
the cheerful, loving faces of those who
need them. Let them not be kept from
the middle-aged, who need the encour
agement they bring. They come to them
like the quiet rain of summer, making
fresh and verdant the long, weary path
of life. They look for them from you,
who are rejoicing in the fullness of life.

There ia said to be a young man in the
Missouri penitontiary whos parents at
their death, lelt him a fortune of $50,000.
There is whore his parents made & fatal
mistake. If they bad taken the precau.
lion to invest that sura in a small dog,
and shot him, and then had simply left
the young man a jack-plane or a wood
saw, with printed instructions how to use
it, the chances are that, instead of being
in the penitentiary, he would today have
oeen gradually but surely working his
way up to a handsome competency and
an honorable old age. But ever since the
days of Adam and Eve, parenU have
made it a point to strurele all their
lives to realize a sufficient sum of money
to purchase, when they are dead and
gone, their sons each a first-class
through ticket to the devil, and it is not
much to be wondered at that to many
of their sons, reared to vice and idleness,
as too many of them often are, have no
higher ambition than to invest their in
heritance in just that sort of transporta
tion. A flood Word for tUe JLocal Paper.

uwos n great many illustrations and
warnines to keen us from doinir wronc.
so that the sunset of life mny be glori

Tl-t 1.,.. K. . .

peculiar force "For whatsoever a roan

thistles and coarso weeds." As tba
sowing depends upon us, is it not an
important matter to know what tosow?
What seed to sow iu order that our
harvest may bo profitable? Surely
this is true. How careful the farmer
is to get only the best seed.
A wonderful thing is a seed
The one thing, deathless forever I
The one thing changleess utterly true,
Forever old and forever new,
And fickle and faithless never.
Wc meet with people every day who
arc reaping just what they have sown.
Some havo never cared much what
kind of seed-time they had, and as a
consequence briars instead flowers,
cheat and not wheat constitute the
harvest Their lot seems a hard one.
and, may be, the question rises many
times "What is the meaning of all
this?" Mothers in Princeton to-day,
who havo tenderly watched for the
good to result from the life of a ton
dearer than life, and have had their
cheeks turn pale, and with bloodiest
lips and throbbing hearts stifled the
cry of auguish that involuntarily rose
from the hearts blasted by the bleak
frost of disappointment. "Why is
this; has God forgotten me?" No,
mother, you have fortrotten: your bor
and yourself are only reaping what you
have allowed to be sown. The harvest
is not to blame. The soil was not.

stealthily creeping along so as not to

you not that he is sowing the seeds of
a life of shame, taking into his mouth
that that will wither all tho flowers

placed upon his brow? Ho may be
quietly walking over a hidden mino, a
volcano which will one day burst, and
in the debris will be buried all your
hopes. Too late when the match has
been applied to the train, or when
you can hear the low rumble of the
earthquake. Now is the time. Don't
for one moment think that because he
is your son he will never gather a bad
harvest. Arouse you; make home at

only the seeds that will yield a harvest

"Plant blessings, and bliesings will bloom;
Plant bate, and bate will grow.

The Famine la ladla.
Tho famine in India still prevails to
a dreadful extent, "women and chil
dren are seen picking out the undigest
ed kernels from old dune heaps; the
lower castes aro with difficulty prevent
ed irom cooking and eating the bodies
of those who have already perished;
pestilence has accompanied tho famine;
when hunger spares cholera attacks."
A magistrate on the island called
Paumbeu writes to his brother in the
United States as follows ; "In one ta
leeg eighty thousand died of starvation
in a mouth. In our district seventy
thousand died in May. Is it not ter
rible? You cannot imagine what
scenes we Indians see and hear
daily. Can you fancy a woman boil
ing and eating her own baby ? That
occurred not many miles from here
only last week. When possible I su
perintend the giving of the food and
havo often seen the mothers take their
children's share and eat it themselves."
Oh 1 is this not terrible, beyond ex
pression? How grateful should the
people of the United States be for the
tender mercies of our Heavenly Father
in sparring us from such awful calami
ties. Ana yet, instead of manifesting
our gratitude' to Him by upright lives,
and earnest efforts to promote His glory
we, as a people, are living in luxury
and wantoness; in debauchery and
and shame.
Would to God that our people would
arouse to a deep sense of their obliga
tions to the merciful being who rules
over them.

good deal of freshening afterward. If I

considered by menny folk th best fish
