As Dr. W. Godfrey Hunter hoarded
the train for Washington last ueek, after
having been chafed out of Frankfoitby
his politiral enemies, he is said to hae
sung in melancholy tones:
"Lav down de shovel and de hoe.
Hang np de fiddle an' Dcboe,
Fcr po' old Hunter has got fer to run
Ter de place where de pie hunters go."
Cvnthiana Democrat.
Mr. Cleveland's whine that -'the
party placed in power as a result of
splendid Democratic patriotism has
failed to meet the obligations of the
people's trust," is hardly worthy of
him, says the Stanford Journal: If
an old bird like himself was caught
with chaff, he ought to eat it without
saying a word. "Splendid Democratic
patriotism" the devil! Tne 'splendid
Democrats" deserve what they
got, but it is a pity that the rest of us
have to suffer with them.
Pnx Deboe owes his election
to the fact that the republicans could not
agree upon any one of their strong men,
and in a fit of desperation compromised
uion a weak man in order to preserve
what little harmony was left in the
party's ranks. lie will live in history as
the first republican to break into a long
line of senators from Kentucky. If the
democrats whose recreancy to democratic
principals during the last two years
can secure any satisfat tion at the sight of
a man like Deboe occupying the positon
once graeed by a Clay anil a Blackburn,
they are entitled to it. It i- about all
the reward they will ever receive for their
treachery.
The Advocate says that the sound
money Democrats of Doyle will fuse
with the Republicans. Of course
theywill. A sore Democrat who
has tried to run things and couldn't
have everything his way would even
fuse with his mother-in-law if he
thought he could accomplish the defeat
of the party that wouldn't
knuckle to his whims. In about nine
cases out of 10 a sore Democrat
helps the party he tries to bury.
Stanford Journal.
In remitting for his paper again,
Mr. McWheat, of Mt. Salem, writes:
I love a thoroughbred Democratic
paper like the Interior Journal. If it
cannot have its way in everything
politically, it always falls in line
with the majority of the Democratic
party and never bolts or sells out.
Ax exchange says: It seems to be pretty
well demonstrated that tobacco no longer
pays in Kentucky. Inferior in
quality and ixeessive in quantity has
caused it to be a paying crop but the
question arises, ihat shall the fanner
substitute instead of the weed? That is
a question that U perhaps hard to answer.
It seem however that almost
beats tobacco at the present prices.
Truck gardens are paying only moderately
well, while cattle are bringing in
a fair remuneration. It seems that the
raising of poultry is beginning to cut
some figure in our part of the state.
This may be called a small business, and
yet it always brings in a little ready
money. The time has come in all enterprises
that the odds and ends must be
looked after. Money must be made in
small sums and dispensed with care
Extravagance in all things must be
checked, at least until the limes change
from what they now are. It is not so
much what is made as what is saved.
That ex-Congressman McCreary
has lost none of his influence with
the Departments at Washington,
t lat he is just as prompt, painstaking,
and effective in his appeals for those
who need his services, was demonstrated
last week in a manner worthy
of notice. The Climax publishes a
quarterly magazine of two hundred
pages, the Delta of Sigma Nu, with a
circulation of nearly one thousand
copies throughout the Union. The
P. O. Department at Washington do-barred
it from the
mail privileges owin;r to the irregularity
of issue due to the pressure
of other work in this office. This
meant an increase from one cent per
pound to ten cents, or from $850 to
$85.00 i a the cost of mailing each
Alter repeated effoits to induce
the Department to rescind its order,
we bethought ourselves of one who
n ver yet turned a deaf ear to a needy
c mstitucnt. He Iiasteued a little mis
sive to Washington with the
E. McCreary,"
when, to our gratification and astonishment,
an instant reply came to
1. M. Josiah Willis to'Taiso the quarantine"
and admit the Delta to the
mails as heretofore.
Tho incident attests the continued
.high standing of our former Congressman
with the Chiefs of the Departments
of the Government at
and lead? us to believe that
the Eighth District, instead of losing
ita Representative last November
only gained another one!

Mr. Lilly In The Race.
The appearance of Mr. Grant E. Lilly
in the race for the nomination for
the County Attorney on tho Republican
ticket will smash a slate sure. Mr. Lilly
is announced in the Climax. Being an
old neighbor and friend, though of different
politics, wo can say that the law
has no more fearless administrator than
he. Sober, upright, industrious, and
capable ho will add strength to his ticket.

Saturday.
The foregoing is from the Stanford
Journal. The Lackeys are all related and
well known here. Mrs. Rout is grand
mother of Miss Sue Rout, who is pleas
antly remembered by 0. TJ. students,
friends of Helm, Lackey, etc,
Mr. Bales Will Not Run.
The friends of Mr. J. W. Bales will
regret to lenrn of his determination
not to make tho race for sheriff. He
arrivedjat this decision on Monday,
having received an appointment
which is more profitable, less exact
ing in its duties, and demanding
such attention as would render a
canvass for or the conductor the of
fice impossible. We refer to the ap
pointment of State Agent for
Schwartzchild & Sultzberger Co., of
New York, the largest Live Stock Ex
port firm in tho country. Mr. Bales
is now the agent for Kentucky, a
place none is better fitted to hold than
he. In his good fortune tho people
of Madison extend their congratu
late their fellow citizen.
Mr. Bales says he will give his sup
port to tho entire Demoratic ticket as
heretofore, but the party knew tho
man whom it had honored with the
largest majority ever given to a can
didate for Sheriff, would never prove
recreant to his duty.
Miss Elvira Mrs. Rcta

Miller. Wolff.
There 13 a treat iu store for the people
ot Madison county on Friday night, which
it will doubtless be the pleasure of many
io aitemi ana enjoy. (J Aliss Miller it
is needless to speak. Her reputation as a
journalist, poetess, writer, reader, and
icciter is sufficient to attract an audience
throughout the Union. Especially is this
true of Richmond, whose people have
been so often the objects of praise from
her facile pen.
Of Mrs. Wolff, who is to be the soloist
f )r the evening, we use the words of her
teacher, the renowned Mine Biedelli,
who is very pround of her talented pupil.
"Mrs. Wolff possesses a very beautiful
and highly cultivated voice, a brilliant
oue. She has entered the professional
ranks, though still studying with me,
and has adopted the concert stage. She
id engaged as sopranist in the first Christian
Church of at a fine salary.
She is considered the best saprano among
the younger set of singers in Louisville".
Such praibe from such a source augments
the anxiety to attend the "Tattler
Evening" at the Court House, Richmond,
Friday nght, May 7. Go.
Mr. Waller Bennett for County Judge.
The sensation of Monday was the
announcement of the candidacy of
Mr. Waller Bennett, President of the
Madison National Bank, as a candidate
for County Judge on the Repub
lican ticket, to succeed his brother-in-law,
Judge James R. Burnam.
Of the candidate personally the
Climax hits naught to say, nevertheless,
without impropriety, something
might bo remarked upon the willingness
of the better class of Republicans
to sacrifice themselves
when the prospect for success
seems brighter by reason of little or
no assistance from them. But such
is Republican politics. The rank and
file toil and sweat, fuss andfight, but
the humbler voters, white and black,
have to stand back when tiie influential
big bugs crowd up to the pie
counters, 'there is Capt. Ballard,
for instance, who is a battle scarred
veteran his last ambition to bo his
party's nomineet so near to realization,
is thwarted at one fell stroke
And there stands Elzie, he of the
cloven foot, who sold his political
birthright, if he ever had any, for a
smell of potash. Where is he at?
Perhaps we do Mr. Bennett nn injustice
in ascribing any selfish motives
to his candidacy Probably his
party managers, recognizing the
need of "grease" to oil the machinery,
have cajoled Mr. Bennett to lead
the ticket that his influence and
means may be utilized in pulling the
chestnuts out of the fire As a cats-paw,
under such circumstances, it
would seem a pity to sacrifice so
amiable a gentleman. But on with
the dance, let joy be unconfined, as
it's no funeral of ours.
Joe Willis The Only Certainty In The Lot.
The Frankfort itemizer in the
Louisville Times has discovered a
peculiar state of things in our local
political circles. Davidson is in but
may get out; Smith is in and out and
may or may not continue that way;
while Joe Willis is in and will remain
in until his term expires,
which is after Davidson's, Smith's et
al ad libitum.
The special say:
"J. Speed Smith, tho clerk of the
present House of Representatives,
and who was defeated for Congress
in tho Eighth district by tne Bradley
forces last fall, isn't bothering about
the Federal pie distribution. Ho has
the Richmond post office nailed
down, along with a part occupancy
of tne new Government building at
that point; but it is all contingent
upon a peculiar state of case. Mr.
Davidson, the present Republican
Congressman of that district, has
his fixed intention of recommending
Mr. Smith for the postmaster
at Richmond, butJiis term will expire
before the commission of the
present Democratic incumbent does.
The latter, Capt. Jo B. Willis, was
appointed late in the last term of
Cleveland, who, like several of his
predecessors, allowed tho old postmaster
to serve out his full four
years. Capt. Willis1 commission, as
postmaster has two years to run, and
unless the case is taken up some
time before the commission expires,
Mr. Davidson's term will have ex
pired before bo has" a chance to carry
out his determination to recommend
Mr. fcinith Tlte latter, seoing this
piumu supping nway ironi him, may

may win, and instead of being recommended
for postmaster by Davidson,

According to one authority the word
"dollar" is a corruption of the German
word "thaler," the form in Dutch beint;
"daalder," Danish "daler," and Italian
'tallero' All these different forms were
derived from Joachim's Thai, a Bohemain
town, where the Count of Schlick, A. D.
1517, coined some excellent pieces in silver
of one ounce in weight. "From the name
of the town came Joachim's thaler, applied
to the above-named coins, as well as that
of Schlickenthaler. Hence, Joachim's
thaler pieces were first contracted Into
Joachim's thalers and then into thaler.
These coins (rained such a reputation."
says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, -that
they became a pattern, so that others of the
same kind, though made in other places,
took the name, the word assuming different
spelling through the low countries,
reaching Spain as dollars, and through
its provinces transmitted to the Western
hemisphere, where it was applied to coins
prior to the adoption of the federal currency.
In coinage the word 'dollar is a favorite,
being found under Tarious spellings in
almost every part of the globe " The value
of a. dollar has so increased of late that it
will now purchase twice as much as formerly,
particularly in dry goods, clothing, and
gent's furnishings at the New York Store,
neztto Farmer's National Bank, Richmond.
