More Kalils Ii.Itoyle.
Raiders have chopped down every
toll-gate in the extreme western sec
tion of Boyle county, leaving only one
gate standing west of Danville. Six
gates in all were visited. No violence
was attempted beyond the use of the
axi s on the poles and no threatening
language was employed toward the
gate keepers. The gates destroyed
surrounded the town of Perryville.
Guards were asked for for all of the
gates destroyed and the gates will re
sume business under either the pro
tection of the county or the State. As
the raids were on the opposite side of
Boyle, we presume the usual cry, "the
raiders came from toward Garrard"
will not be raised this time.

eighteen or twenty of the likenesses
only four have been returned. Thost

Death or Joseph Aldridge.
Mr. Joseph Aldridge died at his
home, near Marksbury, Wednesday
morning. He had been in poor health
for some time, though his death was
not expected so soon. Mr. Aldridje
was one of the most widely-known and
highly respected citizens in Garrard
county and had many friends. He
was an honest, upright citizen and en
joyed the respect and esteem of every
body who knew him. His family is a
large one and all are among our fore
most people. He was in his CSth year
and was a remarkably healthy man all
through life. Mr. Aldridge was a
good friend of The Record and was a
frequent and welcom visitor to our
office. The funeral will be preached
this (Friday) morning at 11 o'clock at
the Christian church, by Eld. J. L.
Allen. Interment in Lancaster Ceme
tery. Heath of Mrs. Fox.
Mrs. Eliza Hunton Fox, aged eighty-
seven, died Sunday morning at Dan
ville, of heart failure. The funeral
took place Tuesday aitornoon; burial
n the Danville cemetery. The deceas
ed was the widow o: Judge Fontaine
V. Fox, one of the most celebrated of
Kentucky's great lawyers, who died
ten 3ears ago. She was a woman of
remarkable physical and mental vigor,
and one of wide acquaintance and
relationship. Hunpreds of old stu
dents of Centre College who came
.vithin her motherly influence during
-heir school days and who are now
scattered throughout the South and
Vest, will learn of her death with
lecp sorrow, for many men now in
public life repeatedly told her that
.hey traced their right living to her
.food counsels. Seven children sur
vive her. Mrs. Fox was born in Al-
oemarle county, Va., in 1S03, came to
Stanford, Ky., in 1S1G and moved to
Danville in lS'M, having for twenty-
ieven years lived in the room in which
,he died.
Cheaper Freight.
The Recokd learns, from good au-
:hority, that an enterprising young
man, of Jessam'ne county, has under
taken a plan which will be a great
olessing to the merchants and citizjns
f Lancaster. It is this: He has pur
chased all of Curley's large wagons
ind mules, will erect a large coal yard
it the big Kentucky river bridge and
laul No. 1 Kentucky river coal to Lan
:aster, delivering it to our deale -s for
everal cents less per bushel than is
iow charged. Me-ehants cm have
;he:r goo is shipped from either Cin-
jinnati or Louisville by boat to Hick-
nan, aud the hustiing young man will
ay them right at the Lancaster man's
loor for one-third less than the rail
road now charges. This, at first
bought, sounds unreasonable, but it
nust be remembered that boat rates
ire the cheapest in the world and, as
there are no toll gates, all the expense
would be for team and driver. The
Curley wagons are about twice or
three times as large as the ordinary
farm wagon, and the large mules have
oeen used in pulling these full of whis
key to Nicholasville depot. The hill
on other side of river is much steeper
.han the one on this side, and if four
nules could draw a load of whisky up
t, they can, of course, draw a load of
nerchandisa up this side. At present
the freight on a car of coal is much
more than cost of the coal, and a deal
er tells us it takes right at 30 to get a
ear here from the nearest mine, and
hen you have to wait the rail road's
pleasure in bringing it.
The new lock at Hih Brilge throw
tide water to the Hickman bridge the
ear around and a Louisville boat will
negin making the trip twice a week in
t short time. We are informed that
mother line of boats will ba put on
from Cincinnati to Hickman and this
vill m'ike the boat rates still lower.
We are not at liberty to give the
tamo of the young gentleman at the
baek of this venture, but he has the
money, the push and enterprise to
naue it a success.
