THE MADISON IAN
GRANT E. LILLY, Ed. arid Pub.
RICHMOND, KENTUCKY.
WE GREET YOU.
No one asked us to begin the pub
lication nf the Madisonian. Nor did
we ask permission of any one to du
so.. The wisdom of Its publication
will be questioned by many. If we
fail dismally, the "I told you so's" will
have one on us. If we succeed then
tbe original Madisouian'a will be a
regiment strong.
It has long been our cherished am
bitions to be the owner and editor of
a good country newspaper. This am
bition has smouldered for twenty
years or more, yet, all this time, 'twas
a Joyous dream. It is said that two
thirds of our lives are spent In hesi
tating; the other third. In repenting.
We've served the time of "hesitating"
and are at the threshold of "repent
ing." We have the temerity to enter
and In so doing, are sustained by the
words of the Immortal Shakespeare:
"Our doubts are traitors.
And make Is lose the good we oft
might win.
By fearing to attempt."
We fear nothing. Nor have we ever
feared. Our hesitancy was based on
the laudable grounds that our friends
were engaged In this service and that
one more organ might tend to their
Injury. But the great increase in the
volume of business at this place, led
us to believe that our coining would
not do them any injury, though we,
perchance, may catch a few crumbs
that fall from the groaning commer
cial tables. They are as tine a set of
gentlemen as ever shoved a quill. My
peace to and love for them.
We shall refuse to travel In the
Id beaten paths of country Journal
ism. These wornout methods have
reduced the country papers to nothing
more than large, unwieldy sheets,
tilled with advertisements and some
news. We shall endeavor to run a
paper tilled with news and things
beneficial to the home and at the same
time carry some advertisements. We
recognize that our Inexperience will
handicap us for the present, but we
trust to your noble generosity of
opinion to help us along; and you
should remember that a good news
paper, pitched on an exalted plane,
will help any community, however
enlightened that community may be;
and in exchange for our efforts, we
should have not only your hearty good
will, but some of your business as
well.
We do not promise to revolutionize
country journalism. We shall try to
give In our paper some features not
heretofore given by this service. The
first page will be devoted to national
news; the second to general sta'e
news. No advertisements will be al
lowed on either of these two pages.
A busy man is entitled tb read the
news without having to search for it
among flaming advertisements. Tbe
other pages will carry advertisements
and one of these pages will be de
voted to local news; one to social
news; one, a page for women and chil
dren. One, a farmer's page; a religi
ous and temperance page; a page of
general literature, containing good,
short stories and a serial story; a page
for general political news at Frank
fort and Washington and as many
other pages as may be necessary to
carry out tbe general plan. A paper
so conducted will be costly to get out
and our only hope of maintaining such
a paper, is based on the idea that tbe
people will show sufficient apprecia
tion to give us a liberal subscription.
Nor do we fail to remember that sen
timent diet aborning from the womb
of commercialism and we shall not
expect a dollar except for value re
ceived. Politically, the Madlsonian will be
Democratic. It will be independent in
thought and word but very consider
ate of the opinion of others. The news
will be faithfully gathered and re
ported impartially.
Further than this we say not but will
let the Madisonian speak for itself.
In the selection of a name for our
paper, we bad under consideration
many other names suggested to us, but
we prefer the name of Tbe Madisonian
because it Is madisonian In spirit. We
name It for the county and its people
and we hope to so conduct It that
every one will be pleased to refer to It
with pride. This is our aim and am
bition and we ask for your kindly so
licitude and assistance.
IF ASLEEP, WAKE UP.
Never before In the history of the
state baa there been such a push in
railroad circles to reach the great min
eral wealth of Eastern Kentucky. This
fabulous wealth which haa lain dor
mant for centuries is now being rap
idly developed. Millions of dollars are
being spent by these great railroad
concerns for roads penetrating tbe
mountains. They are tbe arteries of
commerce. Richmond is on tbe map
now and we should use and combine
our energies to keep It on tbe map.
We are connected by tbe Louisville
& Nashville Railroad by it two great
lines to the larger part of the moun
tains. We are the gateway. Tbia im
mense traffic could be brought by
Richmond to tbe cities. But will it be
so brought? It will not unless Rich
mond puts forth the proper effort to
have It so. We have the location for
great city. It la now an educational
center, known far and wide. A little
Judicious advertising through the me
dium of tbe commercial cluba of the
country would work wonder In re
sult. The opportunity to reap a rich
harvest was once In the lap of this
city. It Is said that opportunity
knock but once. We recall the fa
mous lines of Ingalls and of Shake
speare supporting this idea. But we
also remember the lines of another au
thor" who said that opportunity not
only called on some men once, but
that It would keep on calling and If
they did not let It enter that it wduld
knock the door down and come In any
way. But opportunity can be lassoed
and It appears that some one has done
this for us. Let's find out where It Is
tied, cut the strings and bring It back.
A strong pull with all united in a com
mon purpose to do the best we can
for the city, will accomplish great results.
THE SENATORIAL FIGHT.
It is not tbe purpose of the Madi
sonian to engage in political broils. It
appears that the senatorial slate Is
not finished. Madison has not yet
been heard from. Governor McCreary
has not declared himself a candidate
in express words. That he will be a
candidate for the office, however.
j seems reasonably certain. And why
should be not declare himself? Has
he not redeemed the state politically?
What matters it If the parties who
supported him In his race for gover
nor are now opposed to him in bis
senatorial aspirations? Was not their
purpose in so doing simply to get the
Democratic machinery In their own
hands? The overwhelming majority
of the people who voted for Governor
McCreary did so because it was Gov
ernor McCreary who was the candl-
i date and not because of the fact that
he was supported by those who now
, wish to take advantage of the prestige
I of his great victory. It was the won-1
aeriui personality or me wovernorj
that,, won his victory and not that of i
some who pose as great leaders and j
who claimed to be the cause of his j
victory. It appears to us that he won
, instead of them, rather than by them.
Iu this time of great trials of the
! party in the solution of the pending
' national questions, Kentucky wants a
. MAN in the Senate of wide expert
, ence in national affairs, a man of un
questioned integrity, ability and force.
Such a man is Governor McCreary.
j . All honor to our distinguished citi
zen and governor. Madisou county will
, be loyal to him.
A NEW YEAR.
The old year is dead and may all
Its strife, bitterness and heartaches
die with it. May all of its noble pur
poses grow and bear much fruit. May
the people in every land and clime be
better enabled to perform the duties
of citizenship than ever before. Pros
per each and every one, keep all in
health and strength, let the lump of
intelligence be the guide for their feet
and may each and all see life In a new
er, brighter light and may they be
fortified and strengthened for their
tasks by an immeasurable, sustaining
brotherly love and may we all be
blessed with the 'Corn of strength,
the oil of peace and the wine of Joy."
You who have prospered greatly
the preceding year, remember that the
poor we have with us always. Do
something to relieve their distress.
No doubt that they, too, would have
prospered if circumstances had not
been against them.
"It snows," cries the school boy, and
off he scoots to shoot tbe shoots.
A COMMENDABLE DEED.
They who give to the poor and
needy and bring sunshine and glad
ness to hearts In gloom should of all
people be remembered in the sweet
hereafter and stars in the crows of
such ministering angels will shine the
brightest when the great day of judg
ment shall have dawned. Women lead
In most of the good and charitable
deeds and to them should all glory and
honor be given. Had It not been for
two good Richmond women some 130
of the less fortunate of this city would
not have had a good Christmas dinner
and in fait they might have bad no
dinner at all. These women are Mes
dames M. C. Kellogg and Samuel A.
Deatherage, and to them the thanks
of the community are due. As stated
In these columns before, the Elks have
heretofore dined poor children on
Christmas Day, but this year they
chose other methods by which to dis
pense charity. This meant that many
poor children would go hungry on the
gladdest day of tbe year, and Mrs. Kel
logg and Mrs. Deatherage knew It, so
tbey set to work to supply what look
ed then like the missing link. In her
husband Mrs. Kellogg found a most
willing helper, and tbe tame was the
case in Mrs. Deatherage' home. "My
house will furnish tbe eatables," said
Mr. Kellogg; "My husband and I will
prepare the meal," replied Mr. Death
erage, and the dinner was assured. It
takes some work to prepare a dinner
for I'iO people, and hungry ones at
that, but Mrs. Deatherage was equal
to the occasion and had already
proven her ability a a caterer. And
the result was, over loo little chil
dren bad a splendid dinner In tbe Ma
sonic Temple on Christmas Day and
some' 40 or 00 other were furnished
with lunches sent to their home. And
beside this, Mr. Kellogg, who made
an excellent 8anta Claus, gave each
child a garment of some kind and a
sack well filled with candy and fruit.
The day must have been a happy one
to the promoter aud all other who
contributed to the pleasure of those
who know ao little happiness and
whose want are so numerous. I-et
those who enlisted ao nobly In tbe
divine enterprise rejoice, for did not
the Master say: "Inasmuch as ye have
done It unto one of the least of them.
My brethren, ye have done It onto
Me." Climax.
We have borrowed from the Climax
and print the above with great pleas
ure. We endorse each and every word
of the article. "By their fruits ye
shall know them." .
"Do acts of kindness, not dream them
all day long.
And thus make life death and that
vast forever one grond, short
song."
A THOUGHT FOR THE NEW YEAR.
While the bells ring out the old year
and usher In the new,
Could our hearts but be attuned to
their music sweet and true,
Could we but know our strivings and
our labor ne'er are vain,
That He will send the sunshlue Just
as surely as the rain.
If our faith could just be stronger we
were sure to reach .the goal
And our purpose pure and lofty to
lift some fallen soul,
The hearts we here might gladden by
a word or kindly smile,
And the pathway now so thorny be
all rose-strewn after while.
Then let us cease repining while the :
golden hours speed fast,
Sow the seed of love and kindness tor
the harvest at last,
And he who loves the sparrow will j
keep watch over thee.
Ami anchor safe your little bark with
in Kternity.

CHURCH DONATION.
One of tbe things worth while dur
ing the Christmas week was the beau
tiful spirit of giving as manifested by
the work of the churches in our city.
On Christinas eve various commit- j
tees were appointed to meet and take j
charge of the liberal donations sent iu.;
to be distributed among the poor. 1
These contributions consisted of mon- j
ey, provisions, clothing and toys, and ;
did much to brighten the homes and ,
relieve the suffering of the unfortu- i
nate of our town.
All honor to these Christian people'
who assisted in the Master's work. . 1
The Rev. Marshall, of Richmond,!
has been called to preach every sec- j
ond and fourth Sundays at tbe Mt. !
Pleasant Christian Church. Dr. Mar-j
shall is one of the oldest and best mln-
inters in this county and at one time
was the pastor of the Richmond Chris-!
tian Church. Last Sunday he tilled !
the pulpit of the First Presbyterian!
Church In Richmond. Dr. Scanlon was
absent on account of tbe illness
his venerable mother at her home
el
Virginia.
A revival began on Thursday eve
uing at the Presbyterian Church. An
interesting program has been arranged
and all are cordially invited to be
present.
The Ladies' Missionary Circle of the
Christian Church met with Mrs. R.
E. Million at her home on Water

On New Year's Day Mrs. A. R. Bur
nam entertained the C. W. B. M. of
the Christian Church iu her usual
graceful manner.
The First Christian Church is Hear
ing completion and bids fair to be one
of our handsomest edifices and the
congregation hopes to hold services in
it early In the spring.
Creosote to Kill Dandelions.
John Lang, superintendent of City
Park, who b.as been fighting the pest
for many years, recommends creosote
again thla year for killing dandelions
on private lawns. It should be squirt
ed from a small oil can, about eight
or ten drops into the top of tbe plant
If a small one, but If a large dandelion
the head should be trimmed off and
tbe creosote Injected into the crown
of the root. It should be applied ouly
when the grass Is dry, and care
should be taken to keep It off the
grass, though of course this cannot
be entirely avoided. If the grass
should be burned slightly tbe spot
will grow over Inside of a season.
The creosote follows the root of tbe
dandelion clear to Its base and burns
It so badly that It can never come up
again. Denver Municipal Facts.

One of the prettiest entertainments

the past, to the American girl of the
