In order to get the track in first class shape for the new trains, the railroad company has put a force of ten additional hands on each section of this branch. Can It Be? Depot Agent Patterson tells us there is now talk of running all the Living ston trains via Lancaster. Should this prove true, we will have the best rail road facilities of any town in Central Kentucky. Opening Day. The store room of the Logan Dry Goods Co., was crowded Saturday, the occasion being the grand opening of spring goods. This up-to-date firm has bought and put on display an elegant line of good and they are fresh new and clean. All the stock is splinter new, no old goods in the house. The very latest noveiities in ladies' wear can be found here, and you can get them at city prices. Mr. Logon's long xperience as a traveling min e,oab les him to get the very latest and at the lowest prices. The store Saturday was a scens of beauty, and if you have not yet done so, go at once and see the beautiful goods. Phorieto Crab Orchard. Dr. Kinnaird, of this city, and Mr. J. E. Carson, of Crab Orchard, have succeeded in making up the required amount of stock and will naxt week begin the erection of a telephone line from this place to Crab Orchard. The line will have instruments at Sweeney Morgan's, Preachersville, Mr. Carson's and probably other points along the route. This line is one of the most badly neeJed and will prove not only a great benefit to our town but will be of inestimable valua to our friends along the route and at Crab Orchard. We will yenture the assertion that Garrard now has the best telephone system of any county in the state. Our people may be a little slow in get ting started, but when they go a cat- in' they go a catin'. The Ladles' Day. The good ladies were out in full force Saturday, and the largest crowd ever seen on similar occasions witness ed the millinery openings. The busi ness houses of Mrs. Moody Harden and Miss Sallie Tillett, our local dealers. had bsen beautifully decorated and the large lines of handsome and tasty hats, ribbons eta, were arranged in an artistic manner which was beautiful indeed. All day long both stores were crowded and many purchased their new head wear for spring. We will venture the assertion that no milli nery establishments outside the cities can surpass those of Lancaster in keeping up with the styles and giving reasonable prices. Both of the Lan caster dealers visit the eastern mar kets every spring and every fall and put in a week or so ascertaining the new ideas and fashions. 1 hey se lect their goo Is right at the wholesale markets and, by doing so, get better bargains and can afford to sell cheaper than those who buy from drummers. Lancaster people are proud of their millinery stores and stand by them well. The stock on display here this spring are far more elaborate and varied than ever before, and those ladies who could not come in Saturday should lose no time in seeing the many beautiful de signs before they are all picked over The Kayl to the Mghett trade haUmf fw4r Imm. Act I twU rtow ft aees in third forth teas my Mkir tree POWDER I I MOOiS Lancaster is to Be Given First Class Railroad . Service. Trains Direct to Louisville and Cin'ti. As stated in last issue of The Rec ord, an engagement was made by the committee of Lancaster citizens to meet Mr. Metcalf, general manager of of the L & N. railroad in Louisville. Friday night the following persons went down and held a conference witi. officials Saturday: B. F. Hudson, cash ier Citizens' National Bank, S. C Den ny, assistant cashier National Bank, J. W. Miller, manager Pilirrimasre Dis tillery, R. Kinnaird, J. M. Farra and Louis Lindram. The plan stated in last issue were explained to the rail road people, but they could not agree upon all of it. After discussion they decided, however, upon a plan which is far better than the one originally asked for. They agreed to take the two night trains now running from Cincinnati to Livingston, via. Bcrea, and run them to Stanford instead. This will make close connection at Stanford with the night trains both ways. This is a passenger, express and mail train, and will pass Lancaster about two o'clock in the morninsr. reaching Cincinnati about seven. Re turning, this train will lcve Cincin nati at 7:33 in the evening, pass Lan caster about midnight and connect with the Stanford trains (both north and south) giving c'ose connection to and from Louisville and Knoxville. A stated above, these trains will carry the mail and will give us mail sen: from both Louisville and Cincinnati the niht before, at 7 o'clock the next morning (7 o'clock is the time for open ing the Lancaster post office.) In addition to the above change, the officials will reverse the present da3 train and it will come from Richmond, passing Lancaster about 11 o'clock a, m. , making connection with Louis ville trains at Stanford and returning after arrival of Louisville train, pass ing Lancaster about two or three o'clock. This change will put Cincin nati, freight here four hours earlier, and give us a splendid express service, beside putting Louisville fre:ght here several hours earlier. It will put thi evening mail about one hour earlier, and give until eleven o'clock in th morning to send out our mail, instead of ten, as at present. One objection to reversing the day train was that one engine might not be abie to pull out the freight and stock. The eagini now in use is a small, six drive-wheel, but by putting on a regular, eight wheel engine all can be pulled easily. This change will be a great advantage- to stock men, as it takes out stock all the year around at 3 o'clock in the evening, reaching Cincinnati early next morning. The track of this branch is in good shape, only needing some ballast to make it first-class. The night trains carry Pullman sleepers, and parties going to Cincinnati, Knox ville and Louisville can take a berth and enjoy a good rest all the way. As stated above, we will have direct con nection with both Louisville and Cin cinnatL Oae can leave here in the night and be in either city at 7:30 the next morning, have all day to attend to business and leave the city at 7:30 the same evening. This change has so many advanta ges that we have not the space to give them, but, when established, our peo ple will wonder how we ever did with out it. The change will be made the first of next month, as the company will then inaugurate its spring sched ules. Oar people are delighted with the idea of being given first-class railroad accommodations, and it really sounds too good to be true. Mr. Metcalfe is an exceedingly pleasant gentleman, and received the committee in his pri vate office and talked the matter over deliberately. He said he had been studying for twenty years on, how to give the good people of Rich mond and Lancaster first-class accom modations, and now believed he had hit upon the plan. He has certainly done so, not only for Richmond and Lancaster, but Stanford also. The latter folks are compelled to go to Junction City and wait several hours for a Cincinnati train, and new they get a first-class, fast train right from their front door. A for Richmond, she gets the same advantage we do in regard to Louisville travel (she has al ready first-class Cincinnati trains). At present our Richmond friends go to Louisville via. Winchester, or over the R. N. L & B., which takes all day. Under the new arrangement they can go through in day time, or take a train at midnight and be in Louisville at 7 a. m. We could fill every column o. Tuk Rbcobd with advantages this change will give the people on the line from R'chmond to Stanford, bat will let them wait 'till the first of next month when these things will "be proven.

Our clever Richmone friends have had quite a siege. Helped Us. Owning to sickness in his family, Col. Walton, of the Interior Journal could not go with the rail road com mittie to Louisville. He sent long tele-gram-to the general manager however urging, that official to grant our re quests. Hon1) This One? A certain man came in The Record office this week and discontinued his paper, saying that we had "offered to print advertisements for horses and jacks" and he didn't want his family to read such. This is almost too re diculous to believe, but it's an actual fact. We never said ono word, for fear the old fellow would faint at coming in contact with the naked truth. Look Before Buying. The store room of J. Joseph is now chock full of the latest creations in dress goods and ladies' fnrnishings. Mr. Joseph only recently returned from the Eastern cities where he scoured the maikets and picked up great bargains in goods for all the de partments of his Lancaster store. He makes aspecialy of fine dress goods this season and defies competition both as to quality and prices. His stock of hosiery corsets fine shoer, ribbons, and ladies funishings of all kinds can not be surpossed in Central Kentucky. Um. brellas, trunks, valises in great vari ety. Their aim is to please their cus tomers. Years of experience in the business enables Mr. Joseph to buy his goods at such reasonably low figurera that he can afford to sell them at low er prices.

Considering the hard work done lo get the train service, and the fact that such an improvement is absolutely necessary, the City Council should place an arc light at the depot.
