The express has not been changed to the night trains yet The pxitting on of a wagon to connect at Danville and make daily trips would be of great benefit to sh'ppers, and, if the Adams Express company docs not take steps to remedy thji present unnecessary delay our people ought to establish the wagon line and patronize it alto gether. 1 here is absolutely no good reason why a man should not meet the night trains. The railroad com pany lias done its part in giving us a good passenger service, and if the ex press people do not care to accommo date us, we haye a good chance to get first-class service by means of the wagon to Danville. High llridgc. The Lancaster band received a cor dial invitation to play at the Palisades next Sunday, but owing to the band's crippled condition it was impossible to accept The Palisides will be manag ed this year by Mrs. Emma Buford Bristow, who has many relatives and warm friends in Garrard. The place is now one of the most p pular iu the south, an 1 we know of no resort where one could go an J enjoy a vacation hil ter than tne Palisades. Tne camp grounds are enclosed by a high fence and no one is admitted to the grounds who docs not bear a reputable name. If rough characters go there they are compelled to stay, outside t!ie camp grounds. A number of special attrac tions will be at the Palisades during the season, and The Record will an nounce them, as they come, in ample time for you to make preparations to attend. Mrs. Bristow once resided Lancaster, and our people should lend a helping hand to her enterprise. Worthy Cause. The young ladies, des'ring to an swer the appeal for lands to supply oar soldiers with hymn books, have arranged a concert to be given at the Court House Monday night next, the proceeds to be used in the noble cause above mentioned. The small sum of 15 cents will be charged, which will entitle j'ou to any seat in the house. Following is the PROGRAM. 1 Lancaster Concert Band. '2 Opening address, G. B. Swincbroad. 3 Dact.

Prof. Coiren Leaves. Patrons of the Graded School and our citizens generally will regret to sec Prof. Gowen leave the local institu tion. Prof. Gowen to k charge of the school when it was established three year ago. He had a difficult task in organizing and getting things in run ning order, us no school of the kind had ever been conducted in Lancaster before. He went at the work in a bus iness-like way and succeeded in estab lishing one of the best schools in the state. He weeded out the class of boys and girls who attend simply to say they were "jjoing to school," and dur ing his last year had only pupils who meant business and attended to work and learn something. During his stay in Lancaster he has conducted him self as a gentleman should, and has surely worked hard for the advance ment of the school's interest Prof. Gowen has accepted a posit ion with Dr. Ashley S. Johnson, Pres dent of "The School of Evangelists," at Klmberlin Heights, Tenn. Dr. Johnson paid a very high compliment to Prof. Gowen, when he said to sev eral in Lancaster that he was the only man he had ever met, whom he would be willing to take into permanent as sociation with-him-self. A graduate of Bethany College offered to put two thousand dollars into tee school, if he could secure the position to teach; but after investigating Prof. -Go wen's work in Lancaster, he decided in favor of -Prol Gowen. Buv ice from Notthcott and it will be delivered daily. The best two horse wagon on the market at G. S. Gaines'. J. A. Beazley & Co. have a large and handsome line of wall paper. Prices to suit the people, The W. C. T. U. served strawberries and cream Monday to make up the deficiency caused by the holding of the District Convention. They made about twenty-five dollars, which will pay them out Jubilee Singers. Arrangements have been made by the Camp Nelson Jubilee Singers to give a concert at the Court House this (Friday) evening. The troupe is tin der the auspices of the salvation army. They have fine recommendations and will give a first-class entertainment Admission 15 and 25c. Class IMc-Nic The Graded School pupils under Trof. Postal were taken to Kentucky River Tuesday and enjoyed a pic nic. Tlu party was chaperoned by Mrs. J. E. Stormcs. During the a'tcrnoou Col. W. J. Wiimorc, the gentlemanly man ager of Curley's distilleries, met up with the party and suggested a boat ride. The steamer Mary Lacy was at the bridge and Capt. Dorhcrty kindly consented to take them about four miles down the river. Never did a par ty enjoy a trip more, and they will always haye a warm spot in their hearts for Col. Wilmoro and the ac commodating Capt Doherty. Death of Price Myers. Dr. Grant has just received a Rich mond Mo., paper giving an account of the death of Price Myers, a native of this county, son of Thomps Myers. It occured on the 20th ult from the kick of a horse. He had just returned home about dusk, was unharnessing his horse at the stable, near the house. The paper speaks of him as one of the best citizens, a young man of great worth, having the universal friendship and esteem of all who knew him, that he was a leading member of the Chris tian church, superintendent of the sunday school and was doing an ex cellent work in training the young. Fourth Annual Contest. Great preparations are being made for the Contest in Elocution, which will be held at the opera house Stanford Friday, June 17th. Messrs. Beazley, Waters and Menefee have ar ranged a program which cannot be surpassed. It contains, in addition to the noted speakers, the names of good musicians who will' assist iu making the evening one of great enjoyment Reserved seats arc on sale at McRob cr'.s drug store in Stanford, and those intending to go over had better secure scats in advanca, or they may have to stand. Getting AVater. Messrs. Ward & Miller, proprietors o! the Lancaster Mills, are having a pipe laid from their engine room to the big spring on Battle Row, oppo site the Old Ark. They bought this spring a year or two ago, but were compelled to haul the water. In or der to get the pipe near a level it was necessary to go down into the ground a distance of ten to twelve feet some places. The water will be pump-' ed from the spring to the large pool at the mill, and, by constant pumping, no water will be lost. This enterprise will be a great advantage to the town. as the electric light plant is run fronr the same engine, and in dry weather a sc ireity of water Iras several times caused much trouble. The Musical. The entertainment given by the mu sic class at the G.-aded School Thurs day afternoon was greatly enjoyed by a large'crowd of patrons of the school and other, friends. The patrons of this department are greatly pleased with the success of their children. Mrs. Gowen is a teacher of rare abili ty, ana tnose who unaerstana music say there was never a better teacher in the town. We regret that we were unable to attend the recital and give a detailed account of it. Those who have been sending pupils to Mrs. Gow en regret that she will not be here next year, as the students have made such nice progress under her. Miss Lillie' D. Grant, who completed the course in music, was given a handsome gold medal by Mrs. Gowen. Miss Grant was highly complimented by her teacher on the excellent progress she had made.

If the members of the City Council lived near the Public Square, where they would be compelled to listen to pistol shots, vile oaths and Coinman chee yells all night, we bilieve they would make hot haste to order the marshal to do night duty instead ol having him stand about the streets all day. Saturday night a crowd of fel lows simply elevated hades all night. As the marshal is on duty all day it's, out of the question to expect him to stay up all night. We need no mar shal during the day. Several deputy sheriffs are always about the Court House who would immediately arrest offenders. B.-side there are many oth er officials who could make an arrest in case of necessity. The jailer, sev eral constables and other officers, who are vested with power to make arrests, are about town all the time and it i their duty to make an arrest whenev er and. wherever they see an offense committed. The Council should either change the present order of things or put on a regular night man. After ten o'clock at night the town is wholly without protection, there being no one to look out for fire, thieves or the fel lows whs shoot and kick up the devil in ge neral. iict n pots yd. will close at 35c :2 50c 60c 68c 78c n DRY GOODS 3 COMPANY. 1 Courier-Journal and The Recoud one year for only SI- 25.

For sale by R. E. McRoberts In The Navy. Many Lancaster folks remember Walter Iliatt, the handsome nephew of Mr. J. M. Higginbotham. He resid ed here several years ago and has a host of friends in Garrard. Ilia fol lowing letter was written to a Lexing ton friend: Portsmouth, Va., April .10, 1S9S. Dear Friend: Good luck has attend ed me. I am "Chief Yoeman" aboard the gnnboat "Maple" of 350 tons and speed of 10 knots an hour. My salary is SCO per month. Will sail probably to Key West in a week. Have enlisted for one year. Yours sincerely, Walter Hiatt. Decoration Monday. Rain compelled the Knights of Pyth ias to postpone their decoration exer ercises from Sunday 'til Monday af ternoon. The usual ceremonies were held in the Court House, concluded at the Cemetery. The graves of the fol lowing brethren were decorated with designs: Jas. Bettis, W. F. Henry, Jas. L. Duncan, Dr. Jos. Rogers, C. M. Bonlden and Sherman Haselden. Iho annual address was delivered by Rev. Henry Faulconer. It was a masterly effort and those present compliment highly the fitting words spoken by this able, and bright young minister. The old soldiers, both gray and blue, attended in a body. It was the inten tion of those in charge to have Judge Breckinridge and Judge Morrow to address the soldiers, but they conld not come. Capt. Herndon was called upon and made a speech which de lighted the "boys" on both sides. The soldiers marched to the Cemetery and placed flowers on the graves of all old-soldiers resting there. A good crowd of people were in tows, bmt not near as many as usually come ia.
