Ti.ose who have been in touch with the
splendid work of the Xormal School of
this city, and are familiar with thechar

of that institution has been intrusted,
have implicit contidence in the integrity
of Dr. Crabbe and every other official
connected with the school, and nothir.gr
that Inspector Coodpaster or any ether
man may say to its detriment will cause
those in a position to kr.ow and appreci

their regard for this, one of the greatest
institution of learning in Kentucky.
I)Et ai l the Secretary of State failed
to advertise the constitutional amend
ment requiring the classifies! ion of prop
erty for purposes of taxation within the
period asprescribed by law. the Court of
Appeals holds that the amendment is in
valid, therefore the will of the people
who voted at the last general election in
favor of the constitutional amendment
has been thwarted as the result of the
dereliction of duty of a State oflicial.

Mr. Albert Walker, of Cincinnati, was
in Richmond last week and closed a deal
with the Richmond Ice Co. for a lease of
the buildirgs occupied by Todd & Tay
lor Lumber Co., near the L. fc X pas
sei ger depot, and will manufacture pi
anos in this city. Mr. Walker I1P4S been
connected with the Steinway Fiano Co ,
of Cincinnati, for a numberof years and
is thoroughly familiar with every detai
of the business. The firm will begin bus
mess on Feb. 1 and will start on a smal
scale, but hope before the end of this
year to have a large force of expert pi
ano makers employed. Mr. J. A. Todd,
one of our best known carpenters, has
been employed by Mr Walker to assist
in the wood work.
A negko paroled convict has been ar

less activity since his release from the
penitentiary on parole two years ago.
The incide: t shows the danger of the in
discriminate parole. Some years ago a
paroled convict Killed two people in the
city of Louisville. Prison boards lose
nothing by going slow in turoing con

Senator Chas. D. Aknktt lias intro

weapons and fixing a fine of 150 to 8200
and a jail sentence of 4J days and dis
franchisement for a term of two years
for the first offense. This is a splendid
bill and should pass both Houses unani

made a felony for the first o (Tense.
President Wilson has reason to be

An Unusual Phenomenon.
We have learned from a reliable source
of a most unusual and spectacular phe
nomenon winch occurred near Tates
creek one day last week. We often see
brilliant meteoric displays at night, but
to see a large ball of fire descend from
the heavens in mid-day is something
most extraordinary. Those who wit
nessed the above, stated that the ball of
fire descended and when within a few
feet of the earth bnrsted and flowed out
in all directions, leaving only a dense
cloud of smoke to arise.

source of delight. "The Doll Girl" has
had a most interesting history. Origi
nally it was a French comedy that won
success on the banks of the Seine. Stein
and Willner conceived the idea of turn
ing it into German, and Leo Fall, the
composer of "The Dollar Princess,"
agreed to furuish the score that would
make of it a musical comedy. Under
the title of "Das Puppenmaedel," the
wor was produced in Berlin, and there
made a most substantial hit.

Accidentally Killed.
News reached here Sunday evening of
the accidental killing at Valley View
that afternoon of Terry S. Ferkins by
his cousin, Luther Perkins. The young
men were engaged in a scyjlle in front
of the Perkins home, when 'Ferry is re
ported to have said to his cousin: "You
have a pistol and if you will put it away
I am as good a man as you." Luther
tossed the pistol aside and when it struck
the ground it was discharged, the bullet
taking effect in young Terry's head,
death following a few hours later. Both
young men were about the same age,
about 22 years, and sons of well known
residents of that village. Terry Perkins
was a turnkey under Jailer N. B. Jones
during the past year and was popular
with all who 'knew him. No arrests
have been made in connection with the
The Z.eisler Concert
Through the energy of President J.
G. Crabbe and an efficient faculty com
mittee, Richmond has from year to year
a lecture course that surpasses those
given in the average cities of like popu
lation. The Normal lecture courses are
established. They have brought talent
that is very much worth while. Now.
by virtue of the energy of the musical
clubs of the city and the financial back
ing of Prof. Hoskinson, Richmond is to
have another rare privilege. We believe
no community in the State will hear
better music this season than that heard
right here at home. Two of the artists
would be big drawing cards in any city
in America or Enrope. The remaining
numbers of the series of concerts are far
above the usual musical attractions.
Friday evening. Fannie Bloomfield
Zeisler gave to a splendid audience in
the Normal chapel what will no doubt
prove to be the most artistic of ihe four
great numbers. Her technique is be
yond adverse criticism. To find a flaw
would be to prove one's judgment un
balanced. The delicacy and clarity of
(he light runs, the bold thundering of
her marvelous fingers as she rendered
the heavier selections, the perfect sense
of rhythm, all will be a memory long to
remain in (he hearts of Covers of the
piano. Tc her techique she added a
temperament as clearly marked as her
technique. Under her matchless power
the simple and over-workeJ selections
took unto themselves poetic beauty. Un
der that same sway brilliant numbers
like the 12th movement of Liszt's Hun
garian Rhapsody, or the Erl-King, were
wrought with marvel ".s ctrect. Such
renderings elevate the standard of music
for any community. World artists are
not e very-day fare. The attention and
response given this splendid performer
are a delight to record.
Music-lovers were present; all of them.

We have be3n giving each week as near an accurate report of the con
dition of our market as it was possible for us to do this without coloring
simple facts. We believe that we have been here long enough for our
statemets to pass without question, as facts at last is all that enters in the
count. We sold during the week just closed 4:3,000 pound of tobacco;
the entire market up to Saturday had sold 4,2So,390 pounds. The Madison
House sold, 2,20S,5So pounds of ihis, more than both other houses by over
a quarter of a million. We are not boasting, we are simply pleased over
your confidence in u and our methods.
AND POUNDS. While the week's prices were a shade lower than last
week, but compared favorably with it. considering the quality of tobacco
offered and the dry weather. No real fancy tobaccos were offered. We
still believe we have the strongest market in the State. We sold on Mon
day the 19th, over 70,000 founds. The market opened up Monday from
one to two dollars per hundred higher for all grades. We give below some
of the best prices obtained throughout the week: Whittaker & McCreary
Madison county, 2135 pounds, average $17 25; Gulley & Prather, Garrard
county, .1560 los. average $19 15; B. T. Lunsford. Garrard county, 1905 lbs.
average $17.27; Prather and Sons. Garrard county, C305 lbs, average $16 11
Nat Prewitt, Garrard county, 27'0 lbs, average $16 11; Million and Long,
Madison county, IVXlj lbs, average $16.S0; J. Q. Oldfield. Madison county!
2390 lbs, $15 9 ; T. J. Curtis & Son, 6S05 lbs, average $15.85: D. N. Long.
G irrard county, 1950 lbs, average $17.75, one basket of this bringing $20 50.
J. J. Kirby, Madison county, 2575 lbs, average $15 90. The last two crops
were sold on Monday.
We expect the same strong market to obtain throughout the season.
Tobacco is coming in more slowly will give us a better opportunity to give
each and every seller individual attention and to assist him in securing
every cent for his tobacco that can be gotten. Our experience in the mar
ket is your gain.
We thank you once again for your very liberal patronage and hope
that we can be of further service to you in the matter of gelling the top
prices for your tobacco. Call on us day or night, we will be glad to see

Model Housekeepers
We bestow as much care on our large stock of fur
niture as does the' most fastidious housewife on hers.
That is because, in addition to a natural desire to pre
sent a clean stock of goods for your inspection, and
the pride we take in the fine articles of furniture we
show, we hope to eventually place them in your homes
in the same perfect condition in which we received
them so that you may take pride in them also.
