confusing method of composition then

count of the tragedy as set down at
the time of the murder, in 1863:
"A sad, cruel murther was commit

age, nere Ferryhlll nere Durham be

by report, when the parents waa oat

There Is little need of entering fur
ther Into the details of this gruesome
tragedy. Millus, or Miles, who said
that the devil had told him to commit
the crimes, was seized by troopers and
after trial was gibbeted in chains on a
common, by the roadside, near Ferry
rille. A tradition, let us hope untrue,
exists to the effect that he revived aft
er the gibbeting and lived in awful tor
ture for several days, being In the
meantime fed by his sweetheart A
portion of the gibbet on which he was
hanged stood for many years after

commencing Monday night, has a very
poor opinion of the votes for women
movement which at the present time is
agitating the gentler sex throughout
the country.
"The suffragettes are largely compos
ed of women who have nothing whatso
ever on their minds but their bats," said
Miss Carleton in an interview in Lexing
ton last week. "They are a class who
adopt lap dogs in the place of children,
and interest themselves in the private
affairs of people like Alice Roosevelt
Longworth. If Mrs. Longworth wishes
to smoke a stove pipe it is her own busi
ness, and nobody else's . Women who
do work for a living, and especially in
the theatrical world, have enough to do
in trying to make both ends meet with
out bothering their heads with isms and
There are a number of States in the
West where women vote, and I can't see
that they have cleared the political at
mosphere in the least; in fact there is
not a State that could be more corrupt
than Colorado. And then woman rule
the "roost" any how, so why should
they butt into the political game? And
it is certainly a poor specimen of of the
feminine gender who can't make a man
jump through the political hoop or over
the stick when she wants him to So
why vote?" " j
Miss Carleton is not only a brilliant
and well posted woman but is said to
be a very pleasing and attractive one as
well, and an actrees of a very high order.

Editor Alverson's Predictioa
Editor J. M. Alverson, of the Ander
son News, talking to the Louisville
Times, makes the prediction that if
Gov. HcCreary runs for United States
Senator he will carry every county in
this Congressional district except Boyle.
Editor Alverson calls the governor the
"noblest Roman of them all" and is sup
porting him most vigorously. We will
expect to see Gov. McCreary carry
Boyle also, should he decide to make
the race. Certainly the democracy of
that good county is not forgetful of the
governor's services in behalf of this dis
trict in particular and the State in gen
eral and will not go back on him in
this, his last race before the people who
have always honored themselves by hon
oring him.
Profits in Poultry Productions
That some Garrard citizens make the
poultry business profitable merely as a
deversion and side issue is shown by
the experience of I. C. Ruckir, a miller
of the Paint Lick section. The first of
last year Mr. Rucker had 150 hens in
his barnyard and from that flock in 12
months he sold $153.52 worth of egss.
after reserving a suffiency for home
consumption and supplying his family
ith fried chicken in abundance, His
feed expenditures amounted to $43,
leaving him a net profit of $105.52, be
