Brown hail ed him, and the rest of the procession had to remain standing in the road until the dollar was forked out and Brown turned over the receipt The signal was then given and the proces flioa proceeded to the burying ground.

James Tudor, who was sent to the penitentiary 21 years for the part he took in killing Marion Sebastian, was taken to Frankfort a few days since. Tudor is jn wretph d health and was unable to be moved sooner. We un derstand an effort to secure a pardon isbaing made. Fight at Stanford. A special from Stanford says that on Tuesday morning Jesse Rout, a saloon keeper, disputed with Mayor J. N. Mpqefce over a charge that lc made in the Council, when the latter drew a knife and plunged it into the left side of Rout, who was saved only by a thick book that he had in his pocket Rout got hold of a hatchet, but was disarmed before he could use it Board of Supervisors. The board of supervisors has been in session all wcek but will not com plete their work until tomorrow, Sat urday. A member of the board told Tub Record that the indications were that they would raise the list fully 100,000. This is a big amount, but the board is composed of careful, bus iness men, and what they say will doubtless stick. Who Will it Bo? The term of Postmaster Hamilton expires next month, and the people are guessing who the successor will be. Shugars still believes his prom ises will hold and is very confident; West says nothing and is sawing wood, while Harris wears a confident smile which is calculated to make the people believe he has a card up his sleeve This is the situation in a nutshell, and from the present outlook it's impossi ble to tell which one will be invited to stick his shins under Mr. McKinley's pie counter. Dull Court Day at Danville. Tho present city ordinance has knocked court day business sky high in Danvi.lc, says the Advocate. There was no stock worth talking about on the market Monday and business gen erally was dull, although the circuit court brought a good many people to town. It is thouirht that before the ixt court day the council will repeal th law keeping the cattle away from ain street, A Stitch In Time. There should be some arrangement whereby th.e fire alarm could be work ed from the outs;de, and the Court House door locked at niht It stands open and parties go there to drink, smoke or do anything they choose. A match or. c'gar stub carelessly drop ped will some night set fire to our handsome Teniple of Justice and de stroy it It is out of the ouestfon to lock the door wh le the fire alarm re mains insidp, so why not jx. it on the norticp ani fasten, thp buil ling every night? J3h, Judge Barnside? Many Holes. In cutting the combination out of M. Higginbotham's sa'e, which was dynamited net long since, George Wright, the mechanic, had to drill fifty-two IjoIrs. Tlja shot completely shattered the lock and inside of the door and sprung the front so badly. that a new .doo,r had to be ordered Mr. Wrigltt is a number one workman and, notwithstanding the many holes? drilled, soon had the lock out No clew has been obtained as to who the cracksmen were, nor do we suppose there eyer will be. George Ik Getting There, A Frankfort special nays: "Senator George T. Farris, of Lancaster, is being quietly groomed by his friends for the race for the Democratic nomi nation for Register of the Land Office. He is said to haye expressed a willing ness to fill up this niohe in the next ticket, and the Senate, out of defer ence to him, may not pass the bill abolishing the oilice at the end of the present term, even if the House does- Unless this Legislature abolishes: the cilice it will, of course, last for four years after the expiration of th term of the present incumbent." Another I'lke Dought. The Fiscal Court has bought the old Danville road at the committee's fig ures, lncluiling lull the U.x rivei bridge, at 1,505. This leaves onlj three roads collecting toll, viz: the Richmond, the Stanford aqd the Crab Orchardi These do not want to accsp: the committees prio.-s, and as the court lias agreed to go on that price only, the hitch comes The county now owns to date 58 miles for which it gave, or has promised to give, 20,915, an av erage of about 30) per mile. The three remaining roads consist of about 07 or 38 miles. All parties interested ill meet with the Court today and fix up tlie djeds, notes etc. Froflpects for Improvement. A city official told a Record man the other day that therj was a strong probability that the town and county woull, in the spring, unite and tear avay the old. wqrkhouso building and replace it with a new one which would be a credit to the community. This should, by all means, be done. As the old thing now stands it is not only an eyesore, but a great danger to the ex cellent county jail, which is only a few- feet distant It is a fire trap of the most dangerous kind, and is wholly unfit for people to enter. Rats and vermin line the walls and floors, while there are cracks in the sides large onough to pitch dog through. It has been abandoned and now stands one of the greatest nuisances in the town. Should it burn, it would be next to im possible to save the county jail. Accidental Shooting. While handling a 33 Colts revolver in Logan & Robinson's store Monday night, Will Ward shot and badly wounded Wm. Broaddus. They are both mere boys and were in the back of the store. Ward was trying to put Smith & Wesson cartridge into a Colts p:stol, when Broaddus stepped up and warned him to be careful about it. The ball entered Broaddus' right groin and Dr. Kinnaird cut it out on the opposite side. The physician thinks that while tha wound is very painful and troublesome, that it will not prove fatal. Broaddus was re moved to Dave Ross' residence over the jail and everything is being done for his comfort He is a son of George Broaddus and a peaceful and quiet boy. No one regrets th3 affair more than Ward, as tho two boys were great friend?. Good for Garrard. R. L. Elkin, of this county, was very fortunate in his poultry exhibit al Louisville last week. His fowls are the Black Minorca breed and are beau ties. He'got five premiums out of six entries, and considering the fact that there were fowls on hand from all ovir the United States, this is quite4 a' feather in Bob's cap. His premiums were as follows; For pullet he was a tie with one other exhibitor, score 95 points: he also trot second tirize oa nul let in same ring, score 94 points, and third prtzs in same ring, score 94 points. For hen he secured second prizj and third prize on cockerel, pet ting 90 points. On a "pen", which is considered five of the highest scoring Vii rH a Tin mna ffivan 1Ba vu-iinta ing it all together, the Garrard mm came out with ttying colors. A Good Idea. We understand the County Court i talking of placing electric lights in the circuit court room. As it is now, the room is as dark as a dungeon and the only way any light is made at all is by means of a few rickety lamps which are more than likely to fall or explode and burn the handsome building. The cost of putting in the wires will not bo as much as 'twill cost to buy new 1 lamps, which will have to be done before next circuit court Wo under stand also that special arrangements can be made with the elecric light people whereby the county will only be charged for the lights when act ually in use. Thus it is. seen that the cost of electricity is not as much as oil, and the building is absolutely safe roai lire from that cause. As it's cheapjr and safer there should be no complaint from thp usual gas-bags that !iok on everything that is for the dvanccment o; public good. lUg Court at Danville. Circuit court convened at Danville Monday with a large docket to be trie 1. The A Ivocate says Judge Sau- ley delivered to the grand jury the most ylfforous charge heard in the Danville court housa for many a day. I he burden of his remarks referred to the toilgate raidors. He insisted that the jury should si.t this matter to the bottom and spare no man against whom damaging evidence was found. He showed where the mob spirit would undermine tlj.J very foundation of the government, and said that the responsibility rested with the people ' themselves. Had tho public senti .nent in this and other counties been strong enough, there would have been very few raids. Such outlaws can be eaught if . the people want to catch them, said Judge Saulloy. Turnpike property h,as the same right as any other property and no man has a right to destroy it or atquire it without due legal processes. Col. Gaither Hot, Some confusion ban been caused in -he Seeond R.-giment, K S. G., over hi placing of cllL-ers in charge at the Danville toilgate. It seem that Gen. Collier asked Col. Gaither to put Lieut Sharpley, of Frankfort, on duty, as he, .harplej-, was idle. Col Gaither re- 'used to do so, saying that Sharpley .vas too hasty and otherwise incompe tent to place over the men. A report lias since been started to the effect that Col. Gaither had placed a non jommisaioned ollieer over the men, and Gaither believes Sharpley started the report 1 his made Col. Gaither angry and he has issued an order relieving Sharpley from any connection with the rgimnt Those acquainted with E I Gaither know that he is too strict i disciplinarian and two well up in mil itary matters to ever place a non-com mission man over troops on duty where they are more than likely to be called upon to fire on nion. A ten-year-old boy would know better than that, and clever E l"s friends will never believe that he d d such a thing. Fix for Them. Since last issue of The Record we have heard many reports of visits to residences in town by burglars. Only in a few instances have they succeeded in entering houses, but they are cer tainly abroad in the land and the citi zens should prepare and sleep with one eye open. Do no shooting to scare, but drill a hole through the trilling hide of the first one heard prowling about your promises. It has been reported that the 1S93 burglar usually chloroforms his victims, and some believe it was done here last week. This makes it all the more im portant that a strict lookout should be kept The general belief is that the present work is being done by lo cal talent, who wero prompted by the work done on Higgiubotham'd sa'e. The rascals know that the town has no police protection during the middle of the night and that they have all chances of escaping if they only get out of a man's house. Now, the thing to do is buy a good pistol, lay it handy and let drive at the first son-of-a-gun you hear. Shoot to hit; take no chanc-s on tho culprit returning the fire. A man who would rob you, would not hesitate to murder you if he thought he would not be caught up with. IJXSTJJRE. HEMP and I can novu vivize policies ov, zhese in Farm, Sams. R.

He will return Saturday and paper the Masonic lodge room and attend to any other jobs of painting and papering given him before bidding adieu to home and friends. Try the Crow. The Ideal Husband. The Louisville Post recently offerel prizes for the best short essays on the '"The Ideal Husband" and "The Ideal Wife." Many replies were received. J. A. McWilliams, of Jefferson county, who won the gentleman's prize, is a crustv bachelor. Mrs. Marion Wol- ford Wayts, of Garrard county, who wrote of the ideal husband, is a daugh ter of Mrs. Dr. Mays, and is well known here, where she was a belle in societv while residing in Lancaster. Her idea of what a husband should be is as follows: the ideal husband. Not asked to draw, If any can, Without a flaw. The model man, Why vainly seek, W ith pen to trace, His grand physique Or noble face? Though not endowed with vast estate, Nor filling well some high position, He should possesss a soul that's great, And gentle, kindly disposition. If fine or not to outward view. His heart must tender be and true. A happy laugh, a cheering smile, A helping hand, held out in season; A patience with my faults the while, Withholding blame, presenting rea son. A pleasant word on rainy day. Like sunlight driving clouds away. An intellectual breadth to meet All knotty problems of the day; A spirit happy, strong and sweet. Where the Creator still holds sway. This model husband God has given, To lead a happy wife to Heaven. Ihe sketch I send was drawn from life, And she who penned these lines , His wife. fMtatvitUt CUBAN RELIEF cures fldHlVIv CoIic' Neura,8iaand Toothache in five minutes.
