The pretty weather Monday kept the farmers tilling their land and few came in to court No stock whatever was on the market, and if any one wanted to buy, they kept the fact quiet. The day passed off quietly, there being no drunkenness or disor der. S. I). Rothwell Hurt. While working on a scaffold at Drip ping Springs last week, Mr. S. D.Roth wcll lost his footing and fell to the ground, a distance of ten. feet. He struck on his shoulder, dislocating it. Medical aid was quickly summoned and the injured man made easy. He is up and about now, but the fall gave him a jar which will annoy him for some time. To Join the Army. Capt. Mike Salter took ten more men to Lexington to fill out Capt, Duncan's company. They tell a good one on Capt. Mike. It is said that when he arrived at camp the officers of several other companies needed recruits and stole some of Salter's men. None were in uniform, so Salter had a time in keeping enough to fill the vacancies in Duncan's company. He was never able to find the stolen men and was pretty hot 'til it was found he had enough without them. ends in from 50c to $1.25 G. & Gaines handles the genuine Brown Cultivator.

The trustees of the Cemetery have issued an order prohibiting the drive- ing of h jrses into the enclosure on public days. This order will be strict ly enf ireed. It is a nice move, for the lots are ran over, grass trampled down and, leiides if J a horse runs away there's no telling what damage would result Loungers. Marshal Walker has been ordered by the Council to keep the little negroes off the streets. This is a wise move, and now if they will issue a. similar order in regard to loafing white b:3's and men who lounge about the streets all day, stare at ladies and discuss oth er people's affairs, the Council will be given a vote of thanks by the commu nity at large Some of the white loaf ers arc worse than the negro boys. Soldiers Here, As soon as mustered into the United States service, the officers and men are allowed a shor,t furlough. The fol lowing took advantage of this oppor tunity to come home and see the folks. Licuts. Farra and Wheritt, Privates Chasand Wm. Walker, Kcl Burdett, Kirk Kerby, Dick McGrath, Wm. Marksbury, and the cook, Jim Wiggle. They all hustled back to camp early Tuesday morning. Teachers Examined. Miss Elisa Lusk tells us there were fourteen applicants for teachers' cer tificates examined Friday and Satur- diy. Or the number, thirteen were la dies and one man. Until report of the examination is made, it can not be stated as to how the applicants came out, though Miss Lusk says she never saw .better ex imiuations than the ap plicants stood. The colored teachers will be examined today (Friday) and tomorrow. Soldier Boys. Several membars of the Lancaster company cime home on furlough be fore leaving for the south. They say reports of their fare at Lexington have been greatly exaggerated. They have been well treated and fed. While of course canary-bird food was not hand ed them on silver salvors, yet what they got was as good as any soldier ought to expect. Their uniforms and guns have not been issued, 'but these will be furnished at Chickamauga. The' Show. Cooper & Co's. circus drew only a fair size crowd to town Friday, the weather bluffing off the people. The show carries no flja-bitten, dyspeptic and loud-smelling animals, but gives it's undivided attention to- the ring show. The performers were the best we ever baw, and seme of the feats- were remarkable Of course the band was good no circus ever had a poor band. Those who attended got drenched by the rain, but they were amply repaid by the excellent per formance. Another Circus. We understand Harris' Nickelplate Shows are booked to appear here ear ly next month. We hope it's true. We would rather see a good, one-ring circus than attend the finest opera ever put on the stage. And we believe the average person feels the same way, though try to put on airs and make light of the tented affair. Whenever a man tails you he has no desire to see the elephant, watch the trained po nies, hear the clown or look at the old gal in soiled tights jump through the hoop, just set it down right there that that man is telling you a lie cut from whole cloth. Capt. Bottom to Preach. Captain T. W. Bottom, the veteran auctioneer, t ills 'J hk Record he has retired from this pro.'ession and has been licznsed to preach by the Confer ence of his church. He will enter the field as an evangelist He has a tent 64 by 70 with seating capacity of 800, which he will -spread at Cornishville, Mercer county, June 10th. About the 20th of June he will spread his tent at Herring's school house, this county. and move to Sycamore Valley, on Su gar Creek, the 5th of July. Capt Bot tom will be assisted by J. M. Robinson and E. S. Wilson, of Wilmoce. All are cordially invited to attend these meet ings. Its This Way. When you ask an editor to suppress an item of news because it does not suit you, then go and ask your grocer to exclude pickles from his store be cause you can't eat them, or your butcher to quit keeping bologna be cause it goes against your stomach. There is just as much fairness in one as in the other. News is the editor's stock in trade. So are pickles to a grocer and bologna to a butcher. Soldiers Decorate Monday. The old soldiers, both Coufederate and Federal, will meet in the Masonic Hall Monday at one o'clock and march from there to the Court House where speeches will be' made by prominent men. At the conclusion of the speak ing, the veterans will march to the Cemetery and decorate the graves of all soldiers buried there. Those in charge request all who will contribute flowers to send them to Masonic Hall before dinner Monday, and also ask the good ladies to come then and ar range the flowers into suitable bo quets. All old soldiers are expected to join in and assist in these ceremonies. In Fine Shape. Mr. J. Mort Rothwell came down from Dripping Springs Saturday and tells The Record that the work of re building at his resort has about been completed. All the old houses were torn away and splinter new ones erected. The hotel proper has many large, airy rooms, and broad verandas extend around the entire building. Mr. Rothwell has had ten carpenters at work for some six or eight weeks, and the work was pushed rapidly. He has purchased new carpets and furni ture for the rooms, and no hotel will be neater or better appointed than wilMe famous old Dripping Springs. Mrs. Rothwell will have supervision of the table, which fact insures this department to be second to none in the state. K. P. Decoration Sunday. Garrard Lodge, No, 29, Knights o Pythias, will hold its annual decorat ion exercises Sunday afternoon. The members will meet at their hall prompt ly at 2 o'clock, and at 2:00 sharp will march to the Court House, where the usual ceremonies will be held. Rev. neary Faulconer will deliver the oration this year. The public is cor dially invited to witness these cere monies and hear the oration. At the conclusion of the Court House exer cises the Knights, preceeded by the Lancaster band, will march to the Cemetery and decorate the graves ol the brethren sleeping there. The K. P. ceremonies are beautiful, and the members are working now getting each part down nicely. To Chickamauga. The second Regiment, of which the Lancaster c-.mpany, is a member was ordered to Chickamauga and went to that point Wednesday afternoon. Ihe men had not recei.ved their uniforms or guns, but will receive thes3 at the new quarters. Lieut John M. Farra, who was here Sunday, tells us the gen eral impression is the boys will remain at Chickamauga for at least three months and then probably be ordered to either Marila or Cuba. He says that if the war is brought to a close even within the next month, thatU. S. troops will be needed in Cuba until a stable Government is established, ne says our men are all in good spirits and are delighted at the idea of going south. He says the boys ae slightly disappointed at not getting their uni forms, but they are happy as larks. Death of Mrs. Palmer. A telegram announcing the death of Mrs. J. T. Palmer, at Richmond, crea ted great surprise among the family's many friends in Lancaster. Mrs. Pal mer had been ill only for a few days and a surgical operation became nec essary. She was unable to stand the strain and b.-eathed her last at 12:30 o'clock Saturday. The remains were brought to Lancaster Sunday after noon and funeral services conducted by Rev. Faulconer in the Presbyterian church. The deceased was a Miss Cochran, and was born and reared in this county. She possessed all the traits which go to make a noble, chris tian woman, and was a great favorite with all who enjoyed her acquaintance. She leave3 to mourn with her bereav ed husband, two children. They are Elsie, aged 12, and John, aged 10. Their heart-broken relatives nave the sympathy of all in their sad affliction At the conclusion of the services at the church, the remains were followed by a large procession of friends to the Lancaster cemetery, where the inter ment took place.

No prizes were offered, yet Miss Pearl Aldridge was awarded a handsome gold medal for attendance and schol arship. The grades of her studies were as follows: Higher arithmetic 9S, algebra, 97, rhetoric, 95, botany 90, physical geography 97. Thi is the fourth prize and the second gold med al Miss Pearl has received, and she is not quite 15 years of age. If she pur sues her education as steadily in the future as she has in the past, we be speak for her much success. Badly Hurt. Jas. I Hamilton was seriously injur ed Tuesday night. He was in a buck board with Tom Cecil and when near Hubble drove to a watering trough. Cecil got out and removed the bit so the horse could drink. The animal became frightened and Hamilton, not knowing the bridal was loose, jerked up the reins. The horse started to run and Hamilton rolled out the back of the wagon. He fell some distance and struck his head on a rock. A deep gash was cut in the back of his head and he was rendered unconcious. He was brought to town and physicians worked with him all night. The fall was severe and blood ran from Mr. Hamilton's ear nearly all night before it could be stopped. At this writing he is resting easy and the physicians say he will recover. Mrs. Hamilton, who was visiting in llroadhead, was telegraphed for and came on the night train. Lecture oa Cuba. Rev. Edward W. Abbey, who was in Havana at time of the Maine disaster, will deliver a lecture on "Cuba; ner Stay and Her Hopes," at the Court House Monday night Rev. Abbey had frequent interviews with Counsul-Gen-eral Lee, Captain Sigsbee and other officers of the Maine, and watchei the operations of the divers in recovering the bodies of the dead seamen. Con versations with Spanish officials and Cuban gentlemen gave him rare oppor tunities of learning the views and feel ings of both parties in the dread work of devastation of the Island. Consul tations with Miss Clara Barton, of the Red Cross Society, and scenes among the starving, gave him a vivid insight into the ravages of-the war. His let t jrs to the Northern press called forth from Henry M. Field, the eminent traveler and author, this editorial com ment: "The-best appeal we have read or sees anywhere for pity, for jostle and for peace." - Reserved seats on sale at Storates drug store. General admission, 23c, reserved seats 35c. dont forget to call for for $2. $2.25 shoes for $1.50 DRY GOODS COMPANY. Unreasonable. S far no arrangements have been made for; receiving the express and mail off the night passenger trains. The train service is excellent and, if the officials will only have the express and mail put off, they will soon find that it will pay both departments. There is no night agent at the depot and baggage is pitched off into the darkness to lie there 'til day. At a station of this size, it is hard to under stand why this is allowed. Letters have been written by shippers, busi ness men and passengers and this trouble will certainly be remedied within a few days. If the express peo ple only knew what a drawback this negligence is to them, they would make hot haste to remedy it. The Lancaster Boy.
