B ouhbon C ocktt D isttllbbs 0» "O ld B odkbon ."—The manufacturers of whieky, in the portions of Bourbon and Harriaon counties lying between Paris and Cyn thlana, thu region that gave the name of "Bourb >n" (that portion of Harrison was taken from Bourbon) to the pure jnice of the corn, copper distilled, have made for tunes out of the war. Mr. T. T. Magebbin a lew years ago emigrated from Ohio, and engaged a» a laborer in the distillery near Lair Station, which be now owns. By his attention to business, and gentlemanly maimers, he won upon (he hated slave holders, who indorsed for him when he became a partner and finally sole owner of the concern. He was considerably in volved when the war commenced. Now he is the wealthiest man in his region. Lately he purchased over a thousand aores of land adjoining bis distillery farm, paying for it over one hundred dollars per acre. Mr. Henry Shnwhan,in 1889, purchased a lurge furm at one hundred dollars per acre. Being compelled to sell at fifty dollars in the financial crisis that follôwed, he was bankrupted. Whisky at that time tell from 50 to 15%cents. "Old Bourbon," howe\er, brought him ont, and he now owns several fine farms in Bourbon and Harrisons Colonel Samuel Ewalt, the noted dis tiller, near Shawhen Station, commenced life without a shilling. Recently he bid one hundred and twenty-one dollars per acre for tbe finest farm and the most beau tiful residence in his neighborhood. In 1867, George White, a Harrison boy, was an applicant for tbe position of clerk in the Kentucky State Flag office, in this place; but as it was desirable that the clerk should also act as assistant editor, we were, very fortunately for bira, chosen. This drove him to get a half clerkship in Miller's distillery, in East Paris. Miller, m a year or more, died, a wealthy bach elor, and, having been pleased with Mr. White, left him a few thousand dollars. With this sum he became a partner in tbe new concern. Now he is one of Bourbon's wealthy men. George says if we had not kept Lim out of the newspaper establish ment he would now be a poor man; that he would probably have turned politician, joined in the war and had his head blown ofi: and thet he intends to give us several barre.s of tha oldest and purest. Tbe Messrs. Cook,ol Cynthiana, bought tha Keller distillery on credit when tbe war broke out; now they drive teams ecjual to New ifork fast men:— Parit True Aentuclcian. N ot BAn.—A short distance from the city of Montgomery, in the State of Ala bama, on one of the stage roads running from that city, lived a jolly landlord by the name of F.>rd. In fair weather or foul, in hard times or soft, Ford would have his joke. It was a bitter, atormy night, or rather morning, about two hours before daylight, thut he was aroused from his slumiiersby loud t-honting and knocking at his door. He turned out, but Borely against his will, and demanded what was the matter. It wiip dark as tar, and seeing no one, he cricd out: "Who are you there!" "Burder,and Yancy and Elmore, from Montgomery,'" was the answer, "on onr way to attend court. We are benighted and want to stay all night." "Very sorry I can't accommodate you, so far; do anything to oblige you, but that's imppossible." The lawyers, for they were three of the smartest men in the State, and all ready to drop down with fatigue, held a brief consultation, and then, as they could do no better, and were too tired to go another step, they asked: ' Well , can't you »table our horses and give us chairs and a good fire until mor ning?" "Oh, yes, gentleman, can do that." Our learned and legal friends were soon drying their clothes by a bright fire, as tbey composed tbern>-el"e8 for the few re maining hours in their chairs, dozing and nodding, and now and then swearing a word or two of impatience, as they waited till daylight did appear. The loDgest night bas a morning, and at last ibe sun came along, and then in due time a good breakfast made iia appearance; and to the surprise of the lawyers, who thought the house was crowded with guests, none but themselves sat down to partake. Why Ford, I thought your house was so full you couldn't give usa bed last night?" said Binder. "I didn't say so," replied Lord. "You didn t? What in the name of thunder did you say? "Ycu asked me to let you stay here all night, and I said it would be impossible, for «the night was nigh unto two-thirds ?one when you came. If you only wanted beds, why on earth didn't yen say so?" The lawyers had to give it up. Three of them on one siJe, and the landlord alone beat them all. H abd on the L awyers .—An old 3«dy walked into a lawyer's office lately, with her boy of seven summers old. "'Squire, I called to see if yon would like to take this boy and endeavor to make lawyer of him." "Decidedly too young, madam. Have you no older boys?" Oh yes, sir; but we mean to make farmers of them. My husband and I thought, however, that this one would make a first-rate lawyer, and so I brought Lim to you." "Much too young, madam, to commence tbe study of the profession. But, why do you suppose this boy better calculated to make a lawyer than your older sons; what are his peculiar qualifications?" "Oh, well, you see, sir, he's just seven years old to day; when he was five he would lie like tbe devil: when he got to be six he was sassy aad impudent as any critter could be, and now he will steal everything he can lay his hanas upon. Now if he ain't fit for a lawyer, I would like to know what he will have to learn ?" "Pretty well educated, I should think. Too young, however. Good morning, madam."
