Tom linson went up to defend them, and at press hour has not returned. We understand Capt. Short has sev eral more warrants and will make an other raid on Battle Row in a few days. Old Folks Concert. The Baptist church was crowded Friday evening by all ages of people to hear the old folks concert, which was given in honor of those of our citizens who have past the age of 02. The affair was under the supervision of Miss Margaret Murphy, who also had her Kindergarten class present to take part. Tiie latter opeaed the eve ning's entertainment by singing "O'.d Folks at Home." This was followed by guitars and mandolin played by Mrs. Gowcn, Misses Shumate, Lusk, Gaines and Mr. O. XV. Shugars. Miss Olivia Sweeney then sang in a charm ing manner, "Mollie Darling." This sweet song was written by Col. Will S. Hays, the gifted writer of Louis ville. Col. Hays has composed many songs but none have surpassed, i', we may say, equalled his Mollie Darling. Mr. John M. Farra sang "Annie Lau rie" and received a good round of ap plause. John is about the most ac commodating boy in town and is al ways willing and ready to help in any worthy undertaking. Miss Elizabeth Anderson recited "Granny" in a charm ing manner and Miss Katie Lee Den- nv's "A Fibhin'" was hisrhlv anoreci ated. Miss Addie Burnside was oud ly applauded when she saog ."Ben Bolt," and her duett with Mr. Farra, "Silver Threads Among the Golli'' was well received. The reading by Miss Alice Hudson was one of the most en joyable numbers and, she way liber ally applauded. She had two selec tions, "Old Aunt Mary," and "'A Song of the Ai.ly Days." The entertain ment was brought to a close with song and p intomine, "Coming thro' the Rye," by pretty little Miss Cora Ward and twelve lassies. A neat sum was realized, which will be divided be tween the Kindergarten class and the Baptist church. TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAT. Take Lixnlve Bromo Qulniue Tablets.

James Crow Dillen and his ex pert assistant, Henry Tevis, did the work and it would reflect credit upon New York artist The large hall is especially pretty, the walls being cov ered by blue, (emblematic of the Blue Lodge) and the ceiling with a pretty figured, light colored design.

He tells The Recokd he has selected his deputy but declines to disclose his or her name. He has not decided, where he will have the office, nor has he been informed as to when he wiil take possession. Timely Sermon. Eld. Gowen cerU.inly preached on a timely subject when he denounced gossip and gossipers Sunday night The way he peeled the bark off the old gas-bags was, indeed, enjoyable to hear. This evil of gossiping is one of the most besetting sins of the daj', and it is high time that the long-tongued. rubber-necked, lock-picking old de tainers were .being dragged over the coais. J he slanderer ana the hyena do not hesitate to invade the sanctity of the grave, while the living are made an every day target for suc'i "ani mals." Bro. Gowen is to be congrat ulated on his manly attack, and if the ministers would all fire more of their shot in this direction it would be well. Mr. Albert Severance, a prominent dry goods merchant, of Stanford, and Miss Florie II. Heath, the handsome daughter of Dr. and Mrs. M. C. Heath, were married at the First Presbyt rian church, in Richmond Wednesday. The groom is well-known by Lancaster so ciety folks, who extend congratula tions.

Nearly 100 reserved seats have been sold for the O'.d Maids Convention. Indications are' that the Court House will be pae'eed and j invncd. Battle Row had on its war paint Sunda'. This place is a disgrace to a civilized community, but it seems im possible to get rid of it. For Sale or Kent. I will either sell or rent my resi dence. It is in good repair and in a good neighborhood. For particulars call on either W. H. Kinnaird or m3' self. Marv K. Weisiger. Shooting. Bill Clark, white, and Bill Arnold, colored, had a fight on Battle Row Sunday in which the former shot the latter slightly on the nose. Both were fined by Judge Brown. Sam .Jones on Kentucky. Interviews in St Louis Post-Dis patch: Kentucky has her whisky and her fast buries; her barrooms and her race tracks, but she has, along with them, as fine a citizenship as there is in the Union. The truest Prohibition ists, the most faith: ul temperance men, anu the most lliorougn anu horse racing people I ever met, and 1 have b.-en all over this country, live in Kentucky. More than one-half the count'es in Kentucky have local option. Whisky making and whisky drinking in Ken tucky are on a lower level today than they were ever before in the hisior of the State. It is true that deacons, elde-s, stewards and other otlicers of the church in Kentucky favor whisky and attend race tracks, but they are not near as big dogs as they were in years gone by. But that state of af fairs is trje everywhere. Hie wi r'.d has quit asking men if they were members of the church, but the world does ask them, with a vengeance, 'Are you good citizens?'' "Are you good fathers to your children?' "Are 3'ou good husbands to your wives?" "Do you pay your debts and live right?" If he does the worlJ tips its hat to the man; if he does not, they boot him. And they do right to boot him in the church or out of it. Old Maids Convention. At the Court House next Monday evening, an entertainment which is both new and novel, will be given by a number of Lancnster's society girls for the benefit of the W. C. T. " U. It is an Oid Maid's Convention. The old gals join the society, and by passing through a rejuvenating machine, and conforming to other requirements, are made young again. The meeting is called to order by the president, and each member gives her "experience", or tells why she faile 1 to secure a hus band in her young days. These little speeches are said to be very fine. 'J he officers and members of the so ciety are as follows: off:ceks. President, Mattie Elkin. Secretary, Elisa Lusk. Reporter, Letcher Owsley. Inside Guard, Lula Anderson. Baby in Arms, Edna B. Mason. First Candidates, Fanny West Second Candidate Pattie Beazley. 1st Specimen, Mrs. Dr. Beazley. 2nd Specimen, Mrs. L.

Wo, the women of Lancaster V. C. T. U. feel that it is "a time for us to roj icu"', because of the request made by Miss Christine Brad ley, to u.e water from Lincoln's spring instead of whisky or wine, upon the occasion of christening the Battlesh!p- Kentueky. It is "a time for us to speak", and let this young woman inow how highly we commend her for making such a request, prompted by a noble heart. We bring to her tiie plaudits, the th inks and loving appre ciation o. many loyal, christian women. fhe word christen, means "to give a name and apply water to as a relig ious cereaiony, in the name of Chri-t.'' It is s .i 1 that the habit of christening ships W'th v.i.ie, onies from the Vik ings, a name given to piratical North men, who infested the coasts of the Hritish Islands and of France, in the eighth, ninth and tenth centuries Viking comes frjm the Seandinavian vik, meaning "a bay." Their ships could not be launched from the lawful harbor, like the king's ships, and they had to launch from the bay hence their name Vikings. A elass of ma rauders they were, an 1 is it not time that such a sacreligious practice, which has insinuated itself far into the twilight of the niutcenth century, should yield to one of morality? The ship, so majestic, though inanimate, has had to submit, through all these l'reacliint at Herring's School House. We are requested to announce that there will be preaching at Herring' school house, on new Danville pike, the fourth Sunday night at 7 o'clock. Notice. Please look on the corner of your paper and read the Yellow Label, and see if 3'ou dont owe us something. If you do, please send the money to this office or the collector, Ernest G. Brown.

KINNAIRD, General Insurance, Lancaster, Ky, centuries, to baptism in a liquid, the the products of which are degradation, crime, ruined homes, blighted hopes and broken he. rts. We are rejoicing that Kentucky, through one o her talented daughters, sh ill be the first in the nation to im mortalize herself by abolishing this impious custom. Since the gourd, in Lincoln's boy-hood, was the vessel most us.'d .or conveying the pure, health-giving liquid to parche d Hp the L mcaster W. C. T. U. is going to ask permission to furnish a gourd from .Mi-s Bradley's iirth-pl ce, with which to pour the water upon the prow of the .ship. This gourd will be handsomely raonnt.-d in silver and will be tied with :i bow of wiiite ribbon the badge of the V. C. T. L.

Henry Faulconer has been hold ing meetings at the Presbyterian church every night this week, and will continue until Sunday. He ia making an effort to "warm up" the members and get them more interested ia their religious duties. Christianity in Lancaster, we are sorry to say, is not overabundant, nor is the average person bothering his brain very much on that subject We have any number who go to church and sit up in front, looking as solemn as a jackass in a graveya-d, but when meetin' is over, religion is over with them. The Rec ord hopes the efforts of the local min isters to thaw out their ueaibers will prove success uL We have four -oung, able and conscientious 'preachers who work nobly, and they are indeed true to their c.large if they never weary in their up-hill pull in Lancaster.
