Death of Mrs. Johnston, The communit was greatly shoe'e- ed Wednesday to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Jane Johnston, wife of Mr. T. M. Jonston. She had been in lirly good health for the past few years and her sudden illness was quite a surprise. Mrs. Johnston belonged to one of the most widely-known fami: iis in the county and was beloved by all. She was a consistent member of the Christian church and took a prom- nent part in every movement for the church and good of the community. She leaves beside her husband, five children. They are W. McC Johnston, Mrs. Belle Burnside, Mrs. Patterson, Miss Nell and John. The funeral will take place.at the Christian church this (Thursday) afternoon at four o'clock. Eld. George Gowcn will conduct the services and the interment will take place at the Lancaster Cemetery. Sudden Death. Saturday morning, at an early hour, Mrs. Marinda Herring, wife of Mr, Bright Herring, died suddenly at the family residenca on the Danville pike. She had been in apparent good health all day, and ate a hearty supper be fore retiring. During the night Mr. Herring noticed her peculiar breath' ing and went to her bedside. Before his mother arrived in the room Mrs. Herring had breathed her last No woman bore a better reputation-lor kindness and charity than did Mrs. Herring. She was a true Christian in every sense of the word, and by her many acts of kindness endeared her self to every one who knew her. In his sad bereavement the heart-broken husband has the sympathy of a large circle of friends. After services at the grave, by Elder Gowen, the remains were interred in the Lancaster Ceme tcry Sunday afternoon at three o'clock Unnecessary Delay. Since tli3 change in the running of the trains our people are greatly an noyed and inconvenienced from the fact that no mail is put off here from the night trains. Mr. West, the post master, has. written to headquarters stating the case and if a change is not made right away some one will go to Cincinnati and lay the matter before the post ofll-e authorities. The people do not want this mail opened at night, but it can be nut off and kent at the depot until the regular time for opan ng the office in the morning. It is said that no one miets the night trains, but it does seem that in a town of this size that a matter as important as this should not be overlooked. As matters now are, our Louisville and other morning mail from the south is taken to Richmond and brought back at 11 10. '1 here is absolutely no excuse for this delay, and if the trouble is not remedied our people will make a kick which will hurt whoever- happens to be in the way. J. B. Jennings has the largest line f ladies slippers in town. f If you forgot to bring that dollar to 'he Recohd last court day, just bring t next Monday and all will be forgiv en, bee? To Teachers. Do not forget the dates for examina tions. White teachers must come on Friday and Saturday, May 20 and 21. Colored teachers will be examined one week later. Lecture Tonight. Our people should not miss the op portunity of hearing the celebrated lecture, Volney B. Cushing, tonight at Court House. He is one of the finest n the American platform.

Depot Agent Patterson sold forty- five tickets to Lexington Sunday and great many more would have gone p.d the train been advertised a little sooner. There was a nice crowd abroad. but a few toughs crept in, us uaual. A New Physician. Dr. L S. Wesley has located in Lan caster and opened an office at Dr. O'Neal's old stand. Dr. Wesley comes ighly recommended as a physician. He will move his family to Lane istcr s soon as he can find a house to rent Closing Kxcrclses of G railed School.

All are nvited to attend. y 15. S. Gowen. Showed Up Well. The fact that only four of the Lan- cascer boys failed to pass the rig id examination at Lexington speaks well for the health of our men. Some f the other companies had as high as weaty men thrown out and had trou ble in gett'ng enough to be sworn in. Reports from all over the country say that ninety per cent of the men re- ectel are those addicted to the ciga rette habit All the bo3's from Lan caster, except Kirby, passed. The sur geon said Will Walker was the finest specimen of j-oung manhood he had seen, and passed many compliments on him West. Mr. Tyree II. West died at his home near Pleasant Hill School house, this county, Tuesday last. Mr. West had been a resident of Garrard county all his life and no one stjod higher in the estimation of the pople generally than did he. He was a member of the Christian church and was considered one of the cleverest men in the county. He was always ready to help a friend and a liberal contributor to charitable objects. He was blessed with good health' nearly all his life and was in 77 years old Funeral services were held at his late residence Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Eld. George Gowen, and the remains interred in the Lancaster Cemetery. The New Trains. The much desired train sarvice went into effect Sunday. The old day train has been reversed and now comes from Richmond in the forenoon, passing Lancaster at 11:25 making close con nection at Stanford with the Louis ville and Knoxville trains. This train comes back from Stanford at 4:35 in the afternoon. It remains a mixed train, but makes much better time than of old. The passenger trains run at night, but furnish excellent means of travel. It passes here at 12:29 going to Louis ville, putting you in that city at 7:30 a. m. Going to Cin'ti it passes Lacas ter at 2:52 a. m., arriving in that city about 7:30. On this train yon make connection at Paris for Lexington both coming and going. These trains are first-class passengers and carry both man ana express. JNow that this great beneut has been secured for the town, we sincerely hope that the Ioafinr element, Which talkoi against the tit )rt to secure it will go into a hole and pull the hole in alter them.

The district meeting of the Women's Christian Temperance Union began in this city Wednesday afternoon. The district is made up of the counties composing this congressional district. A large number of delegates are pres ent. As some will not arrive until to night, we will not publish the list un til next issue, at which time we will also give a detailed account of the en tire proceedings. The meeting ojedfc ed with the contest at ths Court-hous?, of which mention is made elsewhere in this .issue. At this meeting Mrs. Patterson gave an outline of the pro gram and Mrs. Robert Elkin delivered the address of welcome. Mrs. Elkin's talk was one of the best we ever heard. It was out of the old cut and dried ordjr and full of common sense. Last night the children of Miss Mur phy's class entertained the visitors, af ter which Mrs. Bdatrchamp delivered an excellent address to a large and appreciative audience in the Presby terian church. Owing to the lateness of the hour we will defer further re ports of the meeting 'til next issue. Our people have the latch string hang ing on the outside, and are doing their best to entertain the visitors, and make them feel at home. dont forget to call for for $2. $2.25 shoes for $1.50 Clothipg at Half Price.

Cc's great Rail Road Show is to exhibit here tomorrow (Friday) The Lexington Argonaut s lys: Cooper & Co.'s New United Circus began its engagement of four days in this city last night to crowded tents. The show is one of the best on the road. Many new acts and featurei were introduced, which the audience highly appreciated. Among the new acts introduced were "The Tybells" in their wonderful lad der act; the Parent-lirodildia four- brother- act, gymnasts; Traver-Rich- ards trio in triple trapese; Frisco-Trav- er burlesque Chinese ladder act; Mme. Lulu and her wonderful horso Topsy, and many others. The show made a big hit with the audience and will doubtless attract large crowds during the week. Admission reduced. Chil dren under 10 years of age only 15 cts. Adults 25c. Usual street Parade at 11 o'clock. Gold Medal Content. The first grand gold medal contest ever held in the state took place at the Court House Tuesday evening. These contests are under the supervision of the W. C. T. U., and are divided into several clashes. First comes the silver medal contest, then one for a gold medal in each district and now the grand, or state, contest. We under stand there is still another called the diamond. The one held Tuesday eve ning was for speakers who had won gold medals. Sjven young ladies took part They were Misses Ida Tyree, Pittsburg, Fannie McClure, Mt Ver non, Fairchild, Iterea, Alberta Anderson, Lancaster, Elene Iliatt, 111 attsville, Mamie Jones, Annie Thomp son, Mt. Vernon. Persons who arc competent to judge such matters, tell us they have never witnessed a better contest nor one in which thosg partic ipating were more evenly matched. Each young lady spoke in a clear, dis tinct and strong voice, and their ges ticulation was perfect Lack of sjae prevents giving a detailed description of each, but we will say that it must have been a dificult task to pick tha winner, so well did each young lady carry out her part The judges were Rev's Henry Faulconer, T. IL Camp bell and C H. Clark, who decide I to give the medal to Miss Alberta Ander son, of this city. South-b'nd Mixed, passe s LajteaaJflBK A. V. Norta-b'nd Mixed, " r 'Spp . u.
