The case will conic up next month. A I.iiine Dodge. We notice several "specials"' sent from N eholasville and Danville inti mate that the raiders in those coun ties "c: iiu from Garrard." Now, it is t-ue we have had raiders in Garrard, but we do not like the idea of our sis ter counties saying we supply the state at large with pole choppers. Of course everybody knows the raiders belong where the devilment is done, but we think it would look just a little more like the fair thing if the sensational telegraph reporters would confine themselves to the truth.

If the plague could only have struck the ex-Magic several years ago and kept some of our fol ;s away, Lan caster would have been many thous and dollars better off today. Better Stay at Home. We understand there is some talk, of taking the Old Maids Convention to a neighboring town. The old gals had better let that alone. A home-talent show is all right when given at home, but ametures appearing before strang ers generally goes pretty hard with both, the latter in pa-ticular. Fire. I'm Out. The crowd which hangs about the Court House to loaf and drink has got ten to be such a nuisance that one offi cer ha t ic'.ced up a placard requesting them to keep their vials in their pock ets. There is always a crowd hanging about the ofliees, and it is hard to see how the oHicers transact business.so much are they annoyed by fellows who hug their stoves all day long. Pikes. J'atters in turnpike circles are quiet. The three roads continue to collect toll, bat no guards on duty in the county. It has been reported that this county had guards stationed at the bridge on Lexington and Danville pike, but we are informed by the county judge that such is not the case. How long t ie gates will stand is hard to say. They may be destroyed any time, but we hope no violence will be resorted to.and the companies and court yet make a trade. The Royal is the highest grade baking powder kaown. Actual tests show it goes oae tbird further than may other braatf POWDER Absolute! Pure ROYAL MX! HO POWOCR CO., NEW VOMC mm FALSE REPORTS. Being Circulated to the Etl'ect that a Case of Small Pox Exists lu Lancaster. We regret very much that a report is being circulated over the county that a case of small pox is in Lancas ter. Some one started a report that a man named Clark had come from Mid dlesboro and was now down with a genuine case. We can state positively that such is not the case. Nobody has come here from Middlesboro for sever al weeks, nor could a person come from there without everybody know ing it, a sharp lookout being kent for that purpose. There is no more danger in coming to Lancaster than there'is in going to any other town, and it is to be very much regretted that the idle and false rumor gained circulation. The "Old Bachelors'" Convention. An antidote to The Old Maid's Con vention will be one of the most enter taining and unique entertainments given in Lancaster for many years. i he convention will be composed of the Lancaster Concert Band leading local talent, and both Old and Young Bachelors. The entertainment will be side-splitting from the beginning, and those who attend will be laugh ing a year hence. The young men are working hard, and t'me nor labor will be spared to make the convention a howling success. Don't forget the date. Court House, Friday night, March 4th, 7:"0 o'clock. Price within reach of all. Let every one come. Business Change. John M. Logan closed a trade with W. T. West Saturday night for the latter's stock of dry goods, clothing, boots, shoes, etc, and an invoice is now beinc made of same. Mr. Logan will close out the present stoek at actual cost and put in a full line os dry goods, notions etc. He will han dle only the choicest, up-to date goods, and will always have on hand what our people want, llislong experience 111 both the retail and wholesale goo Is, business will enable him to secure an 1 keep on hand one of the best stocks ever shown ia Kentucky. M.- L"gan is a popular man among our peopl?, ai d all eladly welcome him back in to bus'ness. He has engaged space in The Becokti to let the people know what he will have, and by watching his ads., you will know what 3-011 want aod where to get it Mr. Login will quit traveling and give his entire at tention to this store. A Ilig Enterprise. A Recokd man drove out to the Pil grimage distillery the other morning ind was shown orer the big pi int. Although only a stone's throw from towr,few of our people are aware of what an immense enterprise and how much money is invested in this dls tellery. The orignal punt was erected by CoL John W. Mille. Tais was de stroyed by fire, excepting the large warehouse, in February 1S95. Pre vious to the fire, the Levy Brothers, of Cincinnati, purchased the plant Immediately after its destruction they began the erection of the present plant The ilistillery proper is built entirely of brick and is a model of convenience and perfection, only the latest im proved machienry and fixtures being used. As a rule, a distillery is a very dirty place but here everything is as neat and clean as a new pin. The tubs, floors, and machinery are scour ed and rubbed daily and a stylishly dressed lady could go all over the premises without soiling a thread. The distiller, Mr. Calvin Nevieus, is said, by those who know, to be one of the best in the state, and judging from the excellent article produced, this reputation is well earned. The plant is now in operation and 103 bush- eles arc mashed per day, from which Mr. Nevieus produces from 'J to 9 1-2 barrels of whisky. The bottling department is a new feature with distillers, the government only recently granting them that privilege. This department at the Pilgrimage is nuder the direction of Mr. Jake Kortz, of Paducah. The arrangement are perfect and, as Mr. Kortz is an expert hand at the bus iness, the goods of the Pilgrimage will go to customers looking second to none. The company is bottling some of its six-year-old goods, which is considered as fine whisky as can be found in the state. The liquor is placed in a large copper tank and passes through a per fect filtering midline before reaching the bottles. Mr. Kortz has a force of han Is who cork, seal and lable, the bottles.J'hey are then put in cases and are- ready for shipment We were surprised to learn of the enormous quantity of whisky in the Pilgrimage warehouse. There are two tremendous houses, both built on the most modera plan. In these are stor ed 4,330 to 4,430 barrels of whiskey. It is worth a trip out there just to go threujh these enormous warehouses. As manager, Col. Miller is said to be one of the best in Kcntueky. He h:s en ie control over tl:e plant, and whatever he wants or suggests is promptly granted by the company, which goes to show .the high estima tion they have for him. We do n t know of any man who comes any nearer attending to his own business and letting other peoples alone than does John W. Miller, nor do we know of one who will respond quicker to a request by a friend for a favor. By close attention to business, and splen did management, he has gotten in shape to enjoy the "shady side of Ea- WW FEAST X Having pure-hashed of W. T.

Walker and .Mr. Joe L. rnold have charge of Uncle Sam's af fairs as store-keeper and gauger, re spectively. They have a great-deal of business to attend to and are kept on the go. The judge, as usual, finds time to tell jokes and keep everyone a bout him in a good humor. The IMgrimage runs six months in the year, consequently puts much money in the hands of iaboreas who iive in Lancaster. The whisky is ship ped all over the United States, and nearly every day a car load is taken from the special side track. Those who know claim the whisky made at the Pilgrimage is as fine as any produc ed in the state, and, judging from the ready sale it meets, the opinion must be true. Ha ma i:.n tr.Miii.

Last Friday, at Taint Lick, George, the little 7-year-old son of Mr. I. C. Rucker, was caught in the mill ma chinery at that place and instantly killed. The little fellow, we under stand, had gone to-the basement of the mill and was standing near a grind stone. His clothing caught in a rap idly revolving shafting- and he was whirled rapidly around, his head strik ing the floor at each revolution. When found life was extinct The little body was brought here Saturday and interred in the Lancaster Cemetery,, the junior classes of the Graded School, of which he was a former member, at tending and taking part in the cere monies. George was an exceedingly bright little fellow and a great favor ite with the people while he lived in Lancaster. The family have great sympathy from our people over the deplorable accident Incomparable Service. The Qaecn & Crescent trains are the finest trains run in the State of Ken tucky.
