In the hurry of writing up the five or six parts of the F.iu'eoner-Mason eddintr we om'.ttcd tho names of Horace Jierndon and Letcher Owsley, the gentlemen attendants. How such an oversight occurred is hard to ex plain to anyone knowing nothing of the work to be done in a printing of lice. On Wednesday we prepare our local," help set it, read the proof, correct it and "make un" Wednesday night. This, in connection with look after some ten thousand other things, is calculated to take up a good slice or one man s tunc. He are, in deed, glad that it was Horace and Letcher whom we overlooked, as they have sense enough to know that er rors will ocjur. If they were two thic'i-lieaded idiots, like some people we know, they would have quit tak ing the paper and gone about preach' ng of our short-comings. On the otlv other hand, lluy say it is a good one on them aud enjoy it as quite a joke. Excellent. Arrangehii 'iits have been completed for reciiviujr mail from the niyht trains. It is brought up and thrown into the post olliee door, and Postmas ter West opens it at 7 o clock. This is as early as the majority of business men could wish. The mail which goes out at night is closed at ( p. m.. giv' ng much more time than under the old way. The day trains will contin ue to bring mail, one at 11:150 a. m. and one at 4:30 p. m. J. he express is also put elf now, and words are inad' equate to express the gratefulness o our people to the L. & N., for this ac commouation. Our town is now as well equipped with trains, mail and express as any in the state. And this was all brought about by the hustling of a few citizens. If everybody would hustle, instead of lounging around and raising objections, we could soon have a town second to none in the tate. One or two parties have fought teeth and toe-nail the putting on of this train service, but their little wail failed to cut any ice. The day for three or four men to run Lancaster is passed, and the majority has taken charge of affairs. Itulilcrs. Toll gate raiders got in their worli this county again Friday night. The double gate dn the llichmond road was chopped to pieces and th usual note of warning left. The gate Ireeper started down the road to in form a director of the work and dis covered a bridge on fire. He worked 'or sometime and succeeded in extin juishing the flames. Road ollicial: came in Saturday, made the required affidavit and Judjeliurnside furnished uards. The gates have been replac ed and toll is again being collected, This road and the one leading to Crab Orchard are the only ones in the coun tv now collecting toll. Gate-keeper OUio Terrill, appeared before Judge Burnside, Saturday, and swore out warrant for Wm. Wren, a teamster fcr Koehler Bros., the lumber men. Ter rill says he positively identified Wren as the man who fired at him. He says when he went and told h'.m so, Wren said, "Well, if you know me so well I will put an end to you," and dis charged a Winchester rifle at him however, the ball missed him and em bedded itself in a near-by plank. D;p utv Sheriff Ward arrested Wren at Cartersville, Sunday, and brought hi to jail. Wren told a Record man that he knew nothing of the toll gata raid and that he was at home in hid that night. He will have an examining trial as soon ss he can secure a nam ber of witnesses by whom he cla'm be c:n establish an alibi. Notice. To save cost, call and settle with ,1. G. Swekskv.

Having stated, in our last issue, that the life and character of Mr. John L Arnold, deceased, deserves a buller mention than was then given, we note the following: He was born January 20, 1833, being 03 years old at the time of his death. He had been a suffer of asthma since 1S.15, but, being possessed of a strong nerve and great will power, he succeeded well in life and reared a large and highly respected family. He was a man of fixed convictious on every subject, cither in private or pub lic life, and always had a cheerful word for everybody with whom he came in contact, no difference what was his condition in li'e. He was an indulgent father, an aflictionate husband, a kind neighbor and a consistent member of the Christian church, iseinsr ever ready to lend a helping hand toward any enterprise, that had in view the elevation, and cultivation of his fellow man, he will be missed in this com munity and wherever he was knowr. In fact, his character should ba emu lated by the rising generation, there by improving and' bettering mankind. He was not only distinguished, for his noble qualities, in times of peace, but following his honest convictious, he enlisted in the Confederate army about the beginning of the late war, and was one of the valiat members of tho 3d Ivy., cavalry, under General Uano. until the close of the war. Many men who had become attached to him daring that struggle, as well as in the ordinary walks of life, attended his funeral and paid the last tribute of ' respect to a nob'.e, worthy and con 'scientious man. Mr. P. Ketcham of Pike City, CaL, savs: "Durinjj inv brother's lata sick ness from sciatic rheumatism, Cham f berlain's Pain Balm was the only rein ' edy that gave him any relief." -Many others have tcstifled to the prompt re lief from pain which this liniment af l fords.

A special term o" the tf rrard Cir cuit Court was held hero last Thurs day by Judge Saulley, to dcteruiine who should rccive the $lO,0J0paid over on tint day by the Insurance Compa nies on the death of M. W. Johnson, who died here in December 132(5. At the time of his d ;ath he held three policies aggregating j.'PjOJJ in ihs Michigan Mutual; 10,(i;0 in the Mu tual of New York; $V),00O in the Now York Life, and three policies aggrega ting S-0,000 in three Accident Compa nies. Shortly a'ter his death the Michigan Mutual paid a small policy of$I.5J0 Ui full, it going etinally to the widow and children. The Mutual of New York and Travelers Accident Companies now ejme and otl'jr to compromise their two policies of $10,000 each at 1 cents on the dollar, which, ou advice of the attorneys, the Court has in structed the parties to accept, and this special term was held to decide to whom the money should be paid. The accident policy had been assigned to the E IwarJs-IJarnard Tobacco Ware house Compani, of Louisville, as col lateral security by Johnson, and the court held the assignment valid and binding, less attorneys fees, commis sions and costs, in collecting same. Ihc Mutual Life policy was payab'e to "Mary C. Johnson, widow of Mat thew W. Johnson and their children," and the court was required to decide whether said widow was entitled to one-half of same, or should receive share and share alike with the five children. The court held that said .language gave the widow onc-hal', from which decision an appeal has been taken by J. M. Higginbjtham, as guardian o: said children. Said ware house company also held an assign ment of one-half of said policy, but same was construed to take onehalf of the widow's 'share only, and not ef fect the children's interest. The cases present very interesting qaestionsand are being bitterly fought by opposing counsel. The Wareaouie is represented by Humphrey & Davie, of Louisville, the widow by J. A. Sul livan, of Richmond, while, tho gua di an and administrator is represented by W. McC. Johnston, of the local bar. Tho other suits are still pendi: g at Louisville. - f Pt M 1 i
