To thoso who havo been coopeu up In an ofllco for a year or two, a brief outing is a To Kt away for a few f hours from tho cares of buslners, and i thochaffof thestreut loafere, to breathe the puro air of the early morning as you wait for tho train that Is to carry you to now scenes andnower (aces Is equivalent to a sojourn at tho sea shore that is en- joyed only by our moro favored ern. Tho usual routine, tho luitnu old grind day in and day out naturally warna tho sunniest of dispositions. We folks who live in tho small, Inland Kentucky villages havo our plans mapped out for ' months ahead. We ro to bed at 0 o'clock, Ret up to breakfast at 7.30, ro to tho pot-office, answer tho mail, read tho ppprs of tho day hofore, talk to our neighbors who drop in far a friendly chat, go to dinner at 12 o'clock sharp, go back to tho oillco or tore, inopo around sleepily until tho afternoon mail arrives, look over the morning papers that reach us 12 hours after publication, lock up tha ofllce, jto around town, Hit on tho goods boxes In front of tho stores, whittle, tell anecdotes, ro to supper at six and to bed. This is varied by prayer meeting on Wednesday night and an occasional "show," at tho , "court-house." Such Is the rulo of existence in tho average small town. Wo have our lodges, our society meetings, an occasional political speech or a protracted meeting. When a Congressman "happens" lnt tho entire populace rushes upon hi in "en mnaso" to hear the latest news from tho front and to hang upon his words as rare jewels of intellectual worth and thoso of his political opinions nudge nnd wink at each other, while they prod us of tho opposite faith with their umbrellas or walking canea. IUh word ia taken as gospel truth and woo bo unto tho iler, who doubts tho accuracy of his statements. Well, wheu woof tho Pythian faith, were notified of tho conclave at jn, thoro wero hurrylngs to and fro and tho clans gathered to arrange for the Vu-I orm Hank to attond In a body. A committee secured a special train and a long Hat of names was enrolled, of thoso who would certainly attond. Hut, as usual this ono had to stay at home, because "l'a" couldn't be at the storo and that ono had a Bick wife or child, tho other had a nng that had snagged herself on a wlro fence, Ac, Ac. When tho long day arrlvod a small cotorlo of the faithful assembled at tho station fully nn hour ahead of time. Tho train pulled In and wo wero soon on our way. At each town we Increased our crowd nnd when wo pulled Into the depot at Lexington there wno quito a distinguished crowd wearing tho caps, tho regulation uniforn with silvor buttons, regalia et cetera galore. A committee received ua and tho kejs of tho city wero promptly placed In our hands. Aladtn, with his wonderful lamp and his RMiii prfnlil have done no more for us than theso open heArted, hospitable, Tythians nml nitizens of Lex Baton. Saxton's fa mouaband discoursed sweet music fori the parade, and tho headquarters of the various lodges at tho principal hotels wero soronaded tltno and again. Strains ot tho latest popular alra wero caught up by tho musically inclined and tho peri patetic and irrepressible whistler was on every street corner. Their ability was successively nnd successfully tried on "After tho Ball," and "Sweet Marie." "On with tho dance Jet joy bo unconfined" was the motto and everybody joined in to make our visit pleaBunt and thorough enjoyable. Tho reports at headquarters, tho committees, fcc, wero gone through with nnd then came the ball at tho I'hre. nix. This celebrated hostelry was In gala attire and promptly at 0 o'clock, tljo ball room began to fill and soon tho opening dance attracted tho attention of those of us who tripped tho light fantastic. Saxton, tho Immortal, was at hia best and merrily ran the Inspiring gamut of tho Washington Post, tho Liberty Bell, nnd all tho dance reportoiro now in vogue. Lovely lassies and uniformed Knights helped on tho brilliant eceno and when the weary head at last sought the downy pillows of hospitable homes, It was to dream of pleasant relaxations from the graver exercises of tbo grand conclave The last day was n gorgeous pageant of march and drill, though tho bedecked streets, nnd when the lisbanding came it was with conviction to nil concerned that tho twofold object ofjproflt and pleasure had been most happily accomplished. Wo who live ovor tho river, had yet ono more evening ofj.enjoyment among tho varied social and musical t. tractions of tho city, then hiod.usj away to life's duller roend of duty at home, full of memories to feast upon fas tho days go ono by one.

G, Hpcker, drugglit, Stanford. DEMOCRATICNOMINEES GEORGE B. UOOPER, M 1& t b Or "Thompsio" nsoverybody calls him, was born in Uustonville nnd lived thero all his life, till he was elected county clerk In 1SSG over a field of good ones. Ho made himself so solid during his first to term that no ono dared opposo him, either in his own party or in the republican party, and h was elected county clerk again in lS00.In this good year of our Lord in 1894, he oflered again for the nomination and was given n clear track, and again was made his party's standard in bearer. The republicans havo put up a very nice man to oppose him, but he is not in it n littlo bit and no one else would bo with popular, blgvheurted, capable and accommodating Thompsio Cooper in the field. Coming into tho oillco with but little oxperieuce, Mr. Cooper soon caught on nnd continuing to improve, ho is now as good a clerk as eyer made out a fee bill. But everybody knows Thompsio and everybody is going to vote for him, so it needless to expatiate ou his many of sterling qualltiesof head and heart. Suf fice it to say that he Is hs e'ever as ho is competent and as good a democrat as ho is either. Mr. Cooper isn paterfamilias by a larce majority. When we interviewed him few days ago, he said he had five children, but a reference to our local columns will show that lie hax n round half dozen now. In fact he poems to be attempting to found nn infant industry of his own, and asks no "protection" either. His wife was Miss Amandti Cook, of tho late James M. Cook, and she even a hotter woman than he is a man, which is a compliment greater than any that could bo paid hr. THOMAS 0. NEWLAND. wd6 f H z!mjZ k. ispf VSaSr? mW?' Speaking of running men, Tom New-land is the "runntngett" one that thia county over developed. Away hack in 1878, a green and gawky looking country man, entered the fieju for tho democratic nomination for jailer. Nobody thought he wra in tho race, but ho went about in hia quiet easy way and mado so many friends that ho distauced the nino contestants for the honor and passed under tho string an easy winner. Since then ho has had plain sailing. Thero wero four aspirants to Bucceed him in 1SS2, but Newland got there again in fine shape. Ho and his friends then thought itlwas time for promotion bo in 1SS0 lrt offered for sheriff and no ono could be found to oppose him. Again in 1SSS ho ran for tho Bame oillco and for a second time ho was given a walk-over. Since tho expiration of that term he had not sought ofllco till this time, when he onteied tho contest for tfio sheriffalty, with Sam M. Owens and James A. Givens. Tho raco was a spiri ted one, nnd again tho 'pluuie of New-land waived In the foro front, tho unbeaten and uubeatablo candidate of tho democratic party for sheriff of Lincoln county. Mr. Newland s success as a candidate for political boners, ia duo to a native knowledge of how to approach uion and mako lasting Iriond8 of them. He always knowa exactly after he talks with a man how he ia going to vote, and right now ho can tell to within 50 of how many votea ho is goiug to get. In every capacity he has proven himself worthy and faithful, and we haven't a doubt that gonnlno worth will again bo given its deserts in a triumphant election. No man deserves more cradlt for getting on in tho world than Mr. Newland. Hia parents wero 'poor and after hia father's death, when he was eight years old, ho became his mother's mainstay and helped her to support the family of six brothers aud sisters', all yctinger than himself. Ho was born in Jessumine county, Nov. 30, 1818, but came to Lincoln nt an early age. His wife was Mips Eliza Menefee, a sister of Sheriff J. N. Menu fee, and a most excellent woman. They too have done thoir part towards peopling tho world, as already eight have blessed their union. Mr. Nuwland is a good Baptist, a faithful Odd Fellow, a true Knight of Honor and an unswerving democrat, to be either of whirli stamps him as an honorable high-toned gentleman. ' MATRIMONIAL MATTERS. , Wm. Beeso, of MnpBillon, O , wauta divorce became his wife whips him. Tho Harrodeburg Democrat reports tho engagement of Miss Mary, daughter ter II. O. Bohon, to Mr. S. H Hayden. George Maerr, an Indianapolis barkeeper, took too much of his medichie and went home and killed his wife. When he realized what he had done bo blew his own worthless head oil. Mr. Ambrose P. Hunn and Mips Eva Reynolds, daughter of our excellent countyman, Mr. Cicero Reynolds, eloped Jeffereonville last week and were married. The I. J sends its congratulations nnd wishes the happy pnir plain Hailing over the a-a of life. Mary Thurman, daughter of Hon. Allen G. Thurman, of dtiio, running mate for tho presidency with Cleveland 1SSS, is shortly to wed an ox-base ball player, at San Diego, Cal., named Holli-day. of She has been twice married and twice divorced, descending in the social scale with each change of men. in Tho society event of tho week in Louisville will bo the marriage Wednesday of Miss Milhrey, tho beautiful and cultured daughter of Editor Henry to Mr. W. A. Miller, a prominent young"T5u8iness man. Tho bride will wear an elegant gown of white eatin Duchesne, and her vail will bo a miracle tho lace-worker's nrt. It is tho gift of her relative, Bishop Watterson, of Columbus, Ohio, and is large enough to falj in long graceful folds over the wedding dress. The border shows a beautiful design in rosrs and lpaves. Her bouquet will be of white carnations. I frequently Bee in tho papers that "Mr. Soanso was married to Miss The wedding was a quiet affair.'' That kinder inakes me tired. Nobody expected that on entering the church the bridegroom fired a bull at the sex ton from his five shooter, jumped over 3 or 1 bencUes with his intended bride, walked a cake-walk over the organ k and threw a brick at his mother-in-law jnst before the minister begins tying the knot, and, nfter the ceremony, the new ly married couple ran a foot race to the delivery wagon that was waiting for them. What else but a quiet alfair whb expected? Columbia Spectator. For onco the I. J. acknowledges to being ingloriously left on a pleasant piece of news. Teu days ago, Mr. G. S. Shelby, farailliarly known as Jock and a son of Col. Isaac Shelby, obtained the consent of Mies Laura Hubble to go with him to Lexington and consummate their hopes by marriage. They went, they married, they returned as happy as a pair of turtle dovea to the home Mr. Shelby had prepared for his bride. Tho groom is a fine young gentleman of good business qualifications, while Miss Laura is a lovely young lady, sure to make nima worthy help meet. May they always be happy in each other's love and after climbing hand and hand tho hill of lifo together, may they rest together at the foot in peace and contentment. Wisconsin Central Lines.
