A Wrll Armed Sqaaa
Mr A C Buchanan this place re
calls a bit of war exierience that was
unusual and at the same time had
its humorous as well as serious
pases Marshall had come in from
Virginia with his army and upon the
return suffered the separation at
Mt Sterling of his artillery from his
armv One hundred men with twelve
cannon started out by way of Jackson
and Campton They were unacquaint
ed with the route aud captured Buck
as a guide They went into camp about
a mile from a high mountain Buck
felt entiiely safe as a dozen guns half of
them 12 pounders were certainly enough
for a hundred men Before daylight a
citizen came into camp and informed
them shat five hundred Home Guards
were gathering on the high mountain
and at sun up would attack the camp
When the morning was sufficiently
light the officers brought their glasses to
lear on the joint in question and true
to information Home Guards were there
The Captain ordered six cannon trained
on the enemy and they were fired in a
volley Gewhillikins The whole earth
shook and tree tops fell as if a tornado
were in progress on the mountain One
discharge was sufficient By the time
the guns were re loaded theie was noth
ing to snoot at Mr Buchanan carried
the squad through without further war
except garden truck poultry yards
and the like After all he enjoyed his
An Old Time Rare
Apropos of the candidacy of Hon John
Young Brown for Governor we chronicle
the fact that in 18140 years ago
Archibald Dixon the father-in-law of
Mr Brown visited Richmond as a candi
date for Governor on the lug ticket
Gen Cassius M Clay was the anti slavery
candidate and Lazarus W Iowell the
lieniocratie candidate Powell was elect
ed by only 850 votes and Gen Clay got
600 votes in Madison mostly Whigs
thereby reducing Dixons vote Gen
Clay received ifiBO votes in the State
Hon Robt N Wicklitfe of Lexington
uncle of Rev I L V Moffet of Rich
mond was the Democratic candidate for
Lieutenant Governor and was defeated
by i14o votes
Dickson made a speech at the Court
house and there being considerable flux
hereabouts of which he was afraid he
went home with Cant P P Ballard who
then lived at Russell Spring and nassjl
the night
Russell Spring is twelve miles south of
Richmond and is named in honor of the
man who had the contract for furnishing
the shine for Gen Green Clays house at
White Hall eighteen mile from the Joes
Rick Knob Quarry probably a century
ago The spring is a mile or two from
the Knob The editor of the Cum ax
with bis lunch basket and Capt Ballard
in the spring last
as a guide dropped on
Sunday and ate dinner at this pioneer
spring The water is abundant and cold
A grapevine twenty seven inches in cir
cumference grows up into two cedar trees

The Climax is informed that the Robt
Edwards estate in New York City of
which mention has been made in the
Climax comprises Trintity church
with thirty five acres in the city taking
in part of Broadway on both sides It is
valued at two hundred and twenty six
million dollars The direct heirs to this
estate we are told are Rev J J Ed
wards of Estill county father of Mrs
ML H Pigg of Richmond and others of
Madison e ounty G F Edwards and
sister and Mrs GKleon layior near
Richmond Also Mrs H H Fowler of
Meadville Pa who visited relatives
here last year
Concerning the Edwards estate a resi
dent of Richmond one of the heirs
sa ft
The Robt Edwards heirs are to meet
at the Willard Hotel in Louisville Ky
on Thursday May 21 1891 Among the
heirs that we are posteei on are W T
Edwarels G T Ed warels and their is
ters the two Mrs Pigg all of this
place C T Edwards of Whitewright
Texas Mrs IL IL Fowler of Meadville
Pa Rev J -G Parsons Louisville Ky
and J G Taylors family of Maelison
The Rev James Jesse Edwards the
father of the Richmond heirs is a son of
Dr George Edwards of Virginia and he
was the son of Jesse Edwards and broth
er of James Edwarels now living in
Jonesville Va Jesse Edwards was
I toe son oi luuter r ow anis w no nan oiu
i two children the said Jessie and Bettie
tried a Knight Here is where
tea in as a close heir
Before the Revolutionary War Baker
Edwards Robt Edwards and John Ed
wards brothers came from Wales
and settled on Manhattan Island
where New York City now stands
About the time the war broke out Robt
Edwards leased between 80 and 90 acres
of that Manhattan land to the Colonial
Government for ninety five years and
went into the arm v and was lost at sea
in a naval pnga uicnt The lease
has expired and the most valuable por
tion of New York City now stands on
the land and reverts to Robert Ed
wardss heirs according to that lease
It is expected that the whole thing
will be explained at the meeting in
Louisville A lot of valuable old rec
ords wiil be shown

Editor Thin Column I beg leave to
have a slight misrepresentation correct
ed A year ago or more the Climax
wrote me up at length and gave my age
at 113 I had a wife then and did 1t
care how old I was But things have
changed my good wife has gone to the
great beyond and I am well you know
how it is with a widower and that is
what makes me say what I do of course
no young good looking woman wants to
marry a man who is 113 years old And
I am not that old I am suie I cant lie
more than 55 or GO The Register writes
me up every week of late and I want it
to dont at least till I can get married
some more Seems to me any way
that if I were realiy 113 the subject
would be yours by right ot discover
And again I dont see why the Register
wants to write me up three or four
weeks in succession More than that I
I used to in slave times belong to the
Tiptons and 1 sort o like to stand in
with them yet I wish you would kind
o norate it around among the women
the good looking young ones that Im
on the turf again or the carpet which
ever is right and help me to lasso one
of em Ill be everlastingly obleeged to
you Truly

Among the commendable things Uiat
wire done by the Chicago Convention
was the ree ognition of the pacer in the
charter of the new Register Association
That instrument provides for the regis

was proposed that a similar provision be
inserted in the by laws A delegate sug
gested that the pacer was secondary to
the trotter Major Campbell Brown of
Tennessee wittily retorted not al
wavs The provision in the charter
was deemed sufficient however to an
thorize the insertion of pacing pedigrees

Kentucky State Weather Service in
co operation with the U S Signal Ser
vice for the week ending May 9th MM
The weather of the past week was
characterized by excessive sunshine de
ficient precipitation and the lowest
on record for the season
Very severe and genera frosts were re
ported throughout the State on the 8th
and seventh In the Northern and
Eastern counties minimum tempera
tures at and below freezing point were
recorded The greatest damage from
these freezes appears to liave occurred in
the sections referred to In all parts
of the State however the results are
very serious to fruits and gardens In
the vicinity of Louisville grapes are al
most totally ruiued The injury to
peaches and other large fruits may not
be so great as it is now thought to be
The frost caused much of the fruit to
fall from the trees but ao they were
too heavily laelen this may be beneficial
There are some reports of damage to
wheat and corn but it is confined to low
ground Some time will be required to
form an approximate estimate of the
damage done Tobacco plants are re
ported to be very plentiful and of fine
quality Rain is very badly needed and
this combined with the cool weather has
greatly retarded growth of all vegetation
