New News Gatherer
We have arranged with Mr. J.
L. Sowers, a veteran newspaper
man, of Nicholasville, to come
and look after our local work.
Mr. Sowers is gifted in this line
and is a fine news gatherer. He
is a genial, courteous gentleman.
We are much pleased that we
have secured his services and feel
mat we are now in a position to
push our work. Heretofore we
have been much handicapped
with double duties, to such an ex
tent that at times our work was
onerous for two men and entirely
too heavy for us. Now we feel
so relieved that we say with much
confidence that we will give you
one of the best papers ever pub
lished in Madison county. This
is our aim and we repeat our
words, "Tell us how we can im

A Severe Loss
Col. T. E. Baldwin was a heavy
loser in the recent electrical storm
which swept over this county last
Tuesday. The lightning struck a
bunch of fine cattle for him, killing
eleven of the number valued at
about $100.00 each. No insurance
was had on the stock.
There has been greater destruc
tion in the last few weeks by
storms in Madison county than
was ever known before. This is
attributed by some to the intense
hot weather and consequent vege
table decay.
Teirrible Crime
Harry Cambell was tried before
Judge Dykes on the charge of de
taining Mrsl W. B. Noe against
her will for improper purposes,
and he was held, over to await
the action of the grand jury in

The day opened auspiciously.
A bright, cheerful sun greeted the
city and at an early hour the citi

People from everywhere began to
pour into the city and early in
the day it was seen that the , city
would be overflowing, with the
yeomanry of the County and her
beaux and belles

made a very able address. Robt

A M., received its dispensation
to organize a lodge in the city ' of
Richmond in 1812. On the 27th

entered this resolution, "Resolved
that a dispensation be issued for
ta lodge to De;held in the town of
Richmond, in the County of Mad
ison, to be known by the name of
Richmond Lodge, with Anthony
Rollins to be Master, Thomsis C.
Howard, Senior Warden' and

lodge under dispensation. . The

Ashby, Richard Holder, Thomas
Hanson, David Blackwell aud
Geo. C. Patrick.
Dr. Rollins was a native of
Pennsylvania, Thpmas Howard
of Virginia, and David C. Irvine
was a Virginian also. The lodge
grew, and eleven names were add
ed to the roll, among whom were
John Speed Smith, Chas. S. Todd,
Joseph Lees, Samuel Stone and
Richard Gentry. A hundred years
ago today the Grand Lodge-unanimously
passed a resolution
granting to Kicnmond Lodge a
charter, in which Thomas C. How

In 1860 and 61, eleven candidates

This lodge has furnished , six
grand masters to-wit: J. Speed
Smith, Ed Turner, J. Speed Smith,
Jr., R. R. Burnam, Judge Daniel
Breck, and Wm. Holloway.
This lodge also would have had
two others. Mr. A H. Shirley
was Grand Senior Warden
when he moved out of the State
and Mr. Shearer was also a grand
Senior Warden when he either
moved from the State or died.
Each would have been Grand
Master in his turn.
