The Small Pox Scare,
The excitement created by the dan
gerous approach of small pox has
about died out in Lancaster, though
the doctors are yet doing m ich vacci
nating. Sore arms are thick as hops
and, if you want to get knocked down,
just grab the average Lancaster man,
woman or child by the left arm. While
there is no immediate danger, yet it is
no bad ilea to have the operation per
formed. Reports from Middlesboro
say the disease Is fast dying out there,
but here are yet enough cases to
spread the disease all over the state if
a strict watch is not kept.

Druggists refund the money if it falls to Core.

One of the most rediculous thiags
we have heard of lately, is the disposi
tion of some people to take exceptions
at part oi the Old Bachelor's show. In
the initiation of the candidate, a long
and foolish obligation was given, the
party administering it making the af
fair up as he went along. Being a
member of several secret orders, he
naturally wound up with "so help me
God, and may He keep me stead ast"
Now some are tearing their hair over
this great sin and want Lewis Walker
to sit in sack-cloth and ashes over the
unpardonable sin. Of course it was
not exactly right, but if those raising
the howl arc so perfect and pure that
this sin is offensive to them, they have
no business in this wicked world; their
place is up with St. Peter. Such ideas
of religion make us very, tired.
The Court House was crowded Fri
day night by people f.om all oyer the
county, who came to witness the Old
Bachelor's Convention. The first
scene represented a barber shop with
the well-known bachelors of the town
and county making ready to go to the
convention. This part was first-clash
in every particular. The second scene
was the convention proper, which was
presided over by Lewis L. Walker,
representing J. Crafty Burnside. 'Ihe
bachelors were represented by youny
men aDoui town. .Many trood hits
were made, though some of the parts
were exceedingly tame and fell fiat.
Five or six members told their experi
ence well, but same, we regret to say,
showed grct lack of study and prep
aration. Some of the hoys seemed to
think that all they had to do was
"mj.ke up" and get on the stage, put
ting no work on what they were tc
do or say after having made their ap
pearance. Joe Robinson's aidres
(repreientiug Pony Beaz'ey), was veiy
good, and took well with the audi
ence, though he was interrupted by
some Smart Alex in the audience, wht
tii.-d to "kiu" Joe. Tne aforesaid
Alex was "called down"' successfully
by Mr. Walker.
At the conclusion of the convention
a minstrel show was given by several
young men, assisted by the Lancaster
band. Lewis Walker acted as inter
locutor, with Charley Anderson and
Letcher Owsley on the "ends." An
derson and Owsley are certainly first-
class minstrels and their work was
highly complimented by every body
who saw it. Their "gags" were all
new and were sprung on popular,
home people, which, of course, made
them more enjoyable. The singing of
John Farra, Ode Shugars, Virge Kem
per, Owsley, Hughes and Anderson,
was well up, and one of the most en
joyable features of the evening. This
in a great measure was due to the
lovely piano accompaniments played
by Miss May Z. Hughes. This charm
ing little lady very gracefully agreed
to help the boys by playing, as they
had no orchestra, and had it not been
for her kindness, the musical part of
the program would have been a flat
By far the best and most appropri
ate part of the evening's entertain
ment was the tableau, 'ihis repre
sented America standing between lit
tle Cuba and Spain. The latter, wkh
drawn knife, was striking at Cuba,
when an officer of the U. S. Army (in
full uniform), grabbed Spain's strik
ing arm. America was represented by
Miss Lula Robertson, a beautiful and
lovely young lady, of E'.izabethtown,
now visiting Mrs Ellen Owsley.
If every Kentucky colonel could
raise a regiment to march against
Spain, what a vast army would be but
in the field by the grand old Common
wealth. The other States of the
Union wouldn't be in it. Georgetown
