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

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."
