Shugars and E. W. Har ris, now have opposition in Mr., W. T. West Shugars claims to have the un qualified promises of "the powers that be" and was so confident of success that he has not reentered any kind of business since resigning his place with Mr. J, E. Stormes some time since. It is said that Congressman Davison is inclined to leave the matter wholly with Gov. Bradley, as this is the gov ernor's old borne. Many seem to think that Mr. West has the best chancr,and some are willing to bet on Harris., Titr Record hopes that whoever "gets it will- keep it.

The new City Council was sworn in Monday and organized Monday night Owing to the illness of a membcr,noth ing was done toward making the sev eral appointments.

The Council will meet in a few days and elect officers, appoint their commit tees, and then buckle down for a fair, square, economical administration. Jletter Keep Him.

Mr Campbell is a man who is a !a benefit to any community andone who wr.ulprove a benefit to all society. The people, irrespective of denominations, iwant him, and we hope that some steps will be takentp retain him. He is a man who eertalBly-"practices wiutt he preaches," and is a true christian in every sense of the word. Good One on Millard. While in Danville the other ,'jiaj, Millard West, the handsome and pop ular clerk at Logan & Robinson's, stepped into Robertson & F&rris' es tablishment to whisper a few good words into the ears of a pretty young lady acquaintance who was making some purchases. A "dummy" in the form of an iron negro boy sits on the counter 'and Millard, growing more serious, remarked to the young lady, "Come; let's get where that devilish negro boy will not laugh at us.

M. D. Hughes, Agent A "Swear ofT' that Stuck. Exactly twenty years ago on Mon day, December C, George T. Farris, now state senator-elect, then a young man, with a bottle of whisky and a six-shooter as his companions, at tended the famous temperance revival held in the Richmond courthouse by the noted lecturer, Wenzell, says the Richmond Climax. Among the four hundred people who went forward and signed the pledge was this same George Farris, armed and equipped as above mentioned. And to this hour and minute he has never violated the oath he took, and never parts with the card which he signed on that Decem ber night in 1S77. Not only has he successfully battled tho temptation to drink strong intoxicants, whisky, wine, etc, but such harmless (?) bev erages as beer and c'der have never" since touched his lips. The Fike Question. The committee sent to Frankfort appeared before the Sinking Fund Commissioners on last Friday and of fered them S14.003 for their interest in the Lexington road lying in Garrard county, which was refused. The fol lowing roads have been bought at the committee's estimate : Hiattsvillc and Kirksville, SjOO; Buckeye, S'2,397; Spil man road, $753; Poor Ridge, S500; Mt. Hebron, ireej Bnena Vista, $500. The other companies iu the county refused the offers made, as estimated by the committee, and have replaced their gates. Only one road, so far, the Richmond, has applied for guards.and the County Judge furnished two for each gate. It is hard to tell now, just what will be done. The court relies upon its committee's estimate as being perfectly reasonable as to prices for the roads, and the stockholders say nay. So there's the situation in a nut shell. The Record hopes that every thing will be amicably settled, and that, too, soon. L.vtek. Since the above was put in type, a committee from the Lexington road came in this (Thursday) afternoon and told the court that they were per fectly willing to meet the county half way and do what would be the right thing by all concerned. We are in formed by one who ought to know that the indications are very strong that the deal for this pike will be closed tomorrow. As individual stock holders own the controlling interest, their say will knock the high mogul sinking fund commissioners at Frank fort east, west and crooked. So, you see, later developments throw a much brighter light on the subject Goose Supper. The local Masonic lodge enjoyed a fine goose supper a few nights since. The fowls were prepared under the kind supervision of Mrs. J. Joseph, whose reputation for getting up excel' lend and dainty dishes caused the brethren to await impatiently for the supper hour to arrive. A few invited guests, and all masons in town wheth er members of the lodge 'or not were on hand, and the way those geese disappeared was a sight to be hold. Coffee, bread, celery, pickles; etc., were plentiful aad'all went home feeling that it wits, good to have been there.

Our big cylender press got out of whack week before last, and we wrote to a type foundry to learn cost of send ing a machinist n;re. "Five dollars per day for man and three dollars per day for his expenses' was the abrupt reply scratched across the bottom of our letter. Not having enough cash to hire him fgr even one day, we un dertook th.e job ourselves, Like the man whq took the olock apart, we soon had enough pieces to not only mane two presses, out to set up an en tire new office.

One of the saddest deaths in Lancas ter for some time, was that of Miss Lucile Weisiger, which occurred Sun day night at 10 o'clock. She had suff ered for several months with throat trouble and was confined to her bed for some weeks. She would have been sixteen years old next April, and was an unusually bright and intelligent girl. She was an active member of the Presbyterian church and took a leading part in the Christian Endeav or and Sunday School. Her beautiful life should be an example for otherr. Appropriate funeral services were con ducted at the family resilence Tues day morning by Rev's. J. C. Randolph of her father, the late CoL Joe Weisi ger, in the Danville Cemetery. An ap propriate tribute will ba prepared by the Christian Endeavor society and appear in next issue of The Record. In Memorial. In the morning of her life the sun went down and yet, not until her work was done. The fiowcr was too beauti ful and fragrant for earth's gardens. and the tender fingers of Providence plucked it and transplanted it above with "the rose of Sharon and the lilly of the valleys." The loss to church, home, mother and friends is irrepara- oie, and yet God's holy will is best. What a blessing her life has been to us all, short, yet it has by it's gentle ness been indelibly stamped on our minus ana Hearts and the influence of such a lovely life will never die and never cease to draw heavenward. She being dead yet speaketh." "She id not dead, the child of our affection, But gone Into that school Where she no longer needs our poor protec tion. But Christ Himself doth rule. In that great cloister's stillness and seclu sion, By gnunllan angels led. Safe from temptation, safe from sin's pollu tion. She lives whom we call dead." She spent her last hours in prayer and telling of Jesus "mitrhtv to save." And those present will never forget it or she seemed so close to her Savior that the death chamber was robbed of its gloom, and brightened by a smile from the little saint's face. It was her desire to get well to tika care of her mother, but was alwa3s submis sive to Uods will. And just before she left us, she poured out her spirit in prayer to the "Lord Jesus to come quickly" and at 10 o'clock her prayer was answered for the Great Shepherd bore the gentle spirit of the lamb in His own bosom to the foi l above. "She hath escape 1 all danger now. Her pain and nghting ail are tied ; The crown or joy is on her brow. Eternal glories o'er her shed." II. N. F. A New Form of Personalities. The old style of portraying famous people through a "sketch" of "biogra phy" is to be modernized in a he Li- dirs Home Journal during 1S9& Five of the most prominent Americans have been ehosen for the departure: Presi dent McKinley, Mrs. Cleveland, Mark Twain, Jcseph Jefferson, and Thomas A. Edison. Each will have a special article, which will consist of about fifteen or twenty fresh, unpublished stories and anecdotes strung together, each anecdote showing some charac teristic trail of presenting a different side of the subjeot. Tho idea is to show famous personalities through their own doings and sayings, and to make these articles accurate tho relatives and closest personal friends of the sub jects have assisted and given to the Journal the best stories and anecdotes within their own knowledge. Eaeh article will thus represent the .closest view of the one sketched. - "Ko author ship will be attached to" any of the ar ticles. TV.B.

ROYAL BAKINQ POWOCA CO., NCW YORK. A BOARDING HOUSE STORY. The Landlady Thinks Sho Is Brainy aad Tries to lie Erudite. Most women reach a time of life and n stage of hard wear at which thev lake refuge in being merely brainy, or being considered so. I had not thought that the boarding house landlady would be attacked witb this fatal complaint, which can gen erally be warded oft by cookingand the elementary arithmetic of the grocer's book, but I had not outlived the stay of more than four hired girls when the landlady fell a victim to the disease. The first sign of it was a sudden and persistent fish diet and a pocket dic tionary in her apron pocket She served the soup out with the manner of the president of Sorosis and her wrappez began to assume a dog-eared and lit erary air. But circumstances were against her. One day the table was graced by a red rose not of the calico and artificial type that decorated the reception room, smelling of patchouli and flaunting like a brazen woman, but a natural, sweet smelling, and certainly ten-cent one. "Say," said the hotel clerk, "this is gettin' Waldorfian, eh?" "I believe," said the landlady, " in feeding my boarders souls as well as their bodies." The landlady's gentleman friend from Toledo, 0., launched lumps of bread upon his turbulent soup. "Special rates for theological stu dents?" he asked. "I mean the intellectual soul," said the landlady. "Serins to me it's only the newspaper woman who's gettin nny good out of this new deal," said the hotel clerk. "Each individual and his special re quirements should be considered. Yes, nm'am. A switchback running up stairs for hotel clerks at night now, landing 'em safely at the bedroom door, would show consideration." "Pink lamp shades for the elderly ladies," murmured the typewriter. "Constant supply of credulous and frivolous young men boarders," re torted the elderly manicure lady, sharp- iy. "Don't forget young Rialto's needs," said the gentleman from Toledo, O. "Whatcher want besides an engage ment, Rialto?" Young Rialto Irving Wallack, the only man in the house who possessed a fur-lined coat, was just getting into pose to speak lengthily when the man who travels for ladies' neckwear said: "A listener." "Gentlemen, gentlemen," said the landlady, "why will yon spoil my little effort to improve the intellectual at mosphere?" "I believe," said the-ay-student of nobody knows wfcaV'that we feed our bodies too mugi and our souls too little. I know,sile continued, with the air of one wjro had successfully collar ed the conversation and meant to keep it. -"through experience and reading that it ia only sutler ing, hunger and even atarvation that brings out the muscles of genius. The restaurant keeper kills what the colleges give birth tc the " But, according to the habit of the boarders, when the lady student of no body knew what collared the conversa tion, they one by one folded their tents I mean their serviettes and silently stole away. In the hall the young man who trav eled for neckwear said confidentially to the hotel clerk: "Well, say, the board's gone off ter ribly lately, and I know one thing. Bill, I ain't goin' to be starved into bein a genius!" Then Bill said, as he went upstairs, that two weeks of ship biscuit and salt water couldn't do that. N. Y. World. YOUR TOBACCO.
