nieriarourmu Stanford, Ky - September 27, 1887 W. P. WALTON. TnuOvensboro Messenger twita in Icr -ayini: po'd words about deal Governor Blackburn, whom we used while novernor to criticua unsparioylv for abusing the pudonin ? fver and who in a burst of in dinaiioa offered a pardon to anyoue tht would kill ua. la explanation we will fay that it U not in our nature to cherieh ani niotity eyen if the object of it remains upon thi ?phere of action, much lee can we ctrry it Ivyiad thexrave Dr B'aexburn was an irupotuoua man, warm henrted and as quick to forgive as to reaant wh U he im agined an injury Such men frequently shoot off at the mouth what does not come from the heart an J we cau not bjlieve thit he ever contemplated bo vile thin; a his word implied. Ilia main object in Ufa seemed to be to better the condition of hi kind and in doine eo frequently let hi beut run tfl with hU brains. Such a man was never intended to ba a governor and the mistake wan made by the people in chooini! him for that office. Tne effects of hia too lib?rsl tits of the ptrdonlng power is felt even to this day, for had ho let the law take ite course, the fellow iliatt might now ba oerving the State for a co inurdor, if hi neck had not pill tie penally, instead of pursuing his natural bant of 8Painstion. Yet even with all this w are willing to giro the doctor hi due, that of a sincere though often misguided humanitarian, Thl Jessamine county election troubles continue to acitate, but until Siturday the fighting hid been done by firing at long range through the columua of a Cineiunati piper. Oo that day Col L. D. Bildwin at-tacked N. D. Miles, the leader of the democrats, and asked him to explain his lettrr to the paper raentio'i?d above. Mil- Mid he did not intend to convey the idea that B.ldwin was a liar, but that he he told lie, or worJs to that effect, whereupon Baldwin climb'd his carcass nnd before tie co'uld ba pulled off had torn all tho whiskers out of one side of Miles face It is paid the trouble is not yet over and will not be till Bildwin has got a whack at Tom Greeu's whiskers. Green fanned the troubles into a flime by writing them up for the Cincinnati sheet. The Salutatory of Mr. Morgan T. Craft appears in the last issue of the Lebanon Enterprise, writen in that gentleman's usually pleasing style. Mr. Craft is a most graceful writer, thoroughly equfpped and deeply in love with his chosen profession, and we predict that his new charge will gallop at once into public favor. The people of Lab anon gain an excellent citizen in his coming. We have known him long and can testify that a warmer hearted friend or more thorough gentleman .does not honor Kentucky's toil than he nor one more public spirited and enterprising. Tne late editor, Mr. Clarence E. Woods, goes to tako a similar position on the Richmond Register, where his undoubted talent for journalism will have even fuller scope. A Wichita, Kansas, man, who plead guilty to 2 800 counts of an for violating the prohibition law, was sentenc ed to 17 years and four months in Jul and fined $2,800. He wai clerk in a drug store and prr.bablv engaged to do what is known thtrsas the jail act It has gotten to be a regular bushier therefor men to hire out to fell liquor for proprietors, who stipulate with them to allow the traffic to be run in their names and to take tbe punishment if tbey are caught up with. This is verv appropriately termed "doing the jail act." EoMEof tne superstitious suggested to Mr.C.eveland that the day he has fixed to B!art on Im Western tour, the 30 .h, falU on Friday, a most unlucky on a for the begin ning of a trip. Irmtead of hearkening to them the President declared that Friday was as good a day as any and with him it had always bean .i lucky da7, as his notni nation for goeraor of New York and PreB ident of the Uoited S.ates were both made on Friday Gov.

I can't get used to it, No amount of familiarity with h can remove the scuse of amazament that the Liliputian personage and attenuated voice at the other end of the line, can belong to any other than a little party about 3 inches tall, with vocal organs to correspond. And yet the inaui kin mimics the tones of a full grown man I know well. The whole thing is away ba yond me. Yet this marvel has paused Into the region of common "stocks," and is quoted in Ike market Hats as a commodity to be bought and sold. My little creature of another sphere is known among "Bulls" and "Bears," who hustle the little stranger about, and horn and hoof and hug it by turns till I shouldn't wonder if some day its little voice gave out altogether. Even now it seem sorely spent, at time, and gurgles mysteriously, while it catches its breath; not unlike the "rattle" that presages speedy dissolution in larger folk. An I yel this irreverent generation seem to handle this mystery with all that thoughtless levity, that regards it iu no other light than a sort of ''maid of all work" or common "errand boy" according to its sex "Hello! is that you Saith?" "Send us up ten pounds of susr; and five of coffx; an 1 a iar of jiui, right away, we want 'em for breakfast; and you may send some lard too" "All right!" "Goodbye." And Jones, who has come in haste at the request of his better half, to heap this order for groceries on the tiny little Smith at the other end of tho wire, ehutll.M oil in his slippers, with suspenders flying free, to shave the other side of his face and complete his toilet. Or, as was often the cie in our "Hall" at Iogleide, the young ladies would consult the Lilputlan oracle, touching some article of feminine use; ci ask pert questions about their female acquaintance, in which event the elf would answer to a name not appropriated by the s'.erner s?x. "Hallo! Is that you Jennie?' "Wtu'"' "Yo!" "O.i Jen-nit! please go round to Robinson's and tell him to -end mo" "Jennie! Tell me who were there lat night?'' "Are you sure?" "I wont say a word about it." 'Ha! Jha!" "Who would have thought it?'' "Goodbye." The sprite is evidently in a merry mood, but what it has communicated to our laughing damsel we know not. She comes into the sitting room rippling oyer with laughter at something. To her the telephone is evidently a mere convenience; not a crowning dip of science into the great unknown, but not unknowable Wonderful is that "image and likeness" of God in as that thus stretches out a hand of power, to subdue all things to itself. Wonderful echo to that voice of original grant to man: "Have dominion over all " So this being of fallen greatness, can never for a moment ignore or forget whence he has fallen, but even in his scientific discoveries will apire to scale the heavens though the penalty should be a jagged rock and a vulture gnawing at his vitals. Would that this creature might know that all attempts will fail to reach the skies save by the way of that God appointed ladder Jacob saw in his vision; and on which bright angels came Hnd went, mini'tcrm; to ail who essayed to mount to the heaven of heavens, by this one way the way "the way of holiness." OoeVs thoughts beside the telephone are of necessity a little "mixed" by reasou of the Babel voices that murmur or shout through its convenient thoroughfaie. It is getting to ba like ice, no longer a "iiixury' but a "necessity" of modern life. But it is eti 1 to me what a locomotive with triin attached will ever be something I gaze upon with fresh wonder eyery lime 1 see it. "Familiarity" with those breeds no "contsmpt" but only excites increasing admiration and marvel that such things exist and God ItKe man has disjovered them. Wnat nn ink- Hog they furnish of the great undiscovered resources of the Infinite one. How can men tail to worship as they look, There is an orthoapical epidemic just now beginning to rago in the Blue-Grass' that no one knows "whereunto it will grow," unlesi checked in its incipiency. I refer to the extraordinary habit of pronouncing ' at all" rigidly, as it is spelled, instead of in the way, familiar to genera-lions, and established by immemorial usage that our father always said il "atall." The dreadful ionoyation is rapidly spread ing to "don't you?" won't vouV and other kindred colloquial expressions, which it is now quite the rage lo pronounce and "won't a-you?" and bo on, ad libitum. This invasion is a regular Goth and Vandal affair, promising to spare nor age nor sex. And the way in which there sweet feminine dudes roll the objectionable orthotpical like "sweet morsels under their tongues," is not only exasperating to "old fogies," but positively alarming; as indicating that the thing in no temporary cmze, but the exhibition of a determined purpose to upturn a social foundation and introduce a new era. It matters com paraliveiy littlo to one who is pist CO, but I plead in the interests of posterity that ws who disapprove shall exhibit a firm front and frown the innovation down. I am sorry to add that the younger members of our troupeare infected by the prevailing epi and are, I fear, beyond the bounds of parental restraint In the mitter Sol own up to a little personal and private consternation, that may impart a mild Hi-vor of eelfishnesis to this otherwise impar tial appeal to an outraged public ''Don't-a" you see? "Won't a" you do womciliit g about it? Or are you not "at-all" alarmed? tiaades of Webster, of Worceiter, of John-eon! To the resctul The Lexington meeting closed in fulltet blessing The Opera House crammed with an earnest and attentive audience to the last. Olr dear friends, sweet, sweeter sweetest to the end It was bo different from any of the previous meetings in the proud "Empress of the Blue-Grass " I feel a thousand times repaid for all the "sowing in tears" ol the comparatively unappreciated past, by this "reaping in jy" of the last ten days. I feel eo strong from this latit experience just to go on and on and "preach," without a shadow of a doubt that the Wird will ever "return void." It shame me for all temporary and mistrust. I should not bo surprised if even my Iriend Falcon, slipping into a back scat of the Opera House, hns had hisstiong heart broken by the gospel, and rtgrut now that he ever dipped his pen iu gall.
