When the good ladies sent the box to our soldier boys at Chickamauga, the express company simply wiped them oft the earth, so to speak, with the enormous charges made.

This will save much to the individual shipper and be a long ways safer. r i sSvtfj j- fH 1 flKLJl $! wKsg gf H to $2. a suit. I would like to do your plain sew ing and dyeing. Mrs. Ophelia Dunn.

Farmers Itead This. Our infcraiation is that the present wheat crop is more or less infected with smut What causes smut? will the question asked so often bat no satisfactory answer. The important thing now, the bast rasthod of hand ling smutty wheat First, harvest it when "dead ripe' and thresh from shock or stack it when perfectly dry. In stacking wheat contaminated with smut, will suggest sprinkling of fine lime every two or three rounds, it will answer three purposes: 1st, will prevent weevil; 2nd, will destroy smut smell; 3rd, have a tendency to dry or harden the smut bill. For convenience u e a burlap sack. put a peck or half bushel fine lime in t by striking it on the wheat,' the lime will sift out in sufficient quantity. This takes but little time but will save you mouey and probably make your wheat meicluutable. In stacking wheat where there is no smut, sprin kle salt everj' two or three rounds in stacking.it is a sure preventive of wee vil and leaves the straw rick in fine ccnlition for cattle but, under no cir cumstances use salt where there is smut, as the tendency .of salt to mois ture would be detrimental to smuttj wheat We are pleased to announce to our friends and customers we are in the wheat trade and request that you re member us before selling. We prom ise as heretofore in our dealings, top prices, aud will be consistent in prices and will be governed daily by the markets for lesitimate business. H. A. B. Markshuky & Sox.

Oae of those fortunate enough to at tend tells The Recoi-.d that the '"big gest" time he ever had was with the Buckeye Fishing Club last week. This club meets every year, and what they do not have to tempt the appetite is not worth having. Wednesday was ladies' day, about one hundred people being present. To use our inform ant's language, "they put the big pot into the little one." The Great Crea tor never made better people than those living in Buckeye, and nothing affords them more pleasure than to do something whereby they will add to the happiness of friends. Death of Kd Sparks. Lancaster friends were greatly pained on learning of the death of Ed win Sparks, which cccured at Nich- olasville Sunday night Mr. Sparks was a nephew of Mrs. Margaret Marrs, of this city, and was a frequent visi tor to our town. In early life he spent much time here 'and was a general 'a vorite among the young, people. lie has been connected with the firm of Cogar & Co., at Danville for some time, and resided there until a few- weeks ago, when broken health for ced him to return to his former home in Nicholasville. It would be diffi cult to find a more congenial and clever-hearted boy than was Ed Sparks. To know him was to be fond of him. Although only twenty-nine years of age, he had been engaged in business for quite a while and enjoyed a Jrepu- tation for splendid qualification, strict honesty and fair dealings. lie was married about eight years ago to Miss Eunice Hamilton, a lovely and accom plished Nicholasville girl, who, with sweet little daughter, is left to mourn his loss.

Sam Jones. Rev. Sam Jones has been engaged to appear at High Bridge on July 3rd. As this great man's time is engaged for a long time ahead, it is doubtful if the people of Central Kentu.-ky will have another opportunity of hearing him soon. T.ie High Bridge Camp Ground, or the Palisades, is now con ducted on a highly moral plane, and is the ideal spot to go to for rest, recre ation and picasure. No rough charac ters are permitted near the grounds, aud thoac attending aro assured a pleasant and profitable trip. Mrs. Emma P.uford Bristow has absolute control of the grounds and meeting. It is hoped many of her old Lancaster friends and acquaintances will attend. A Merited Coiiifliiuent. Many teachers who attended the ex amination, spoke in the highest terms of Miss Elisa Lusk, the superintend ent. One lady told a Rkcoi:i repre sentative that she had attended exan. inations under the last four supcrii -tendents, by two in Indiana, and also stood the state examinations, but none had been as systematic or as carefully conducted as was the one recently held by Miss Lusk. And here The Rkcokd desires to say that it has nev er been more courteously treated by any ofiicer than it has by Miss Lusk. When some people are given an office they immediately think the newspa pers, and the public too, have no right to ask for information, but the pres ent superintendent is free from any such fool ideas. Marriage or "Old Phil." Capt. Phil B. Thompson and Mrs. Allie W. Davis were united in mar riage at the bride's home in Harrods burg, last week. The ceremony was performed by President John Aug. Williams, the parlor being well filled with relatives of the bride, and close friends of both parties. Tho groom, who is seventy-seven years of ag?, dressed in the conventional broad cloth suit, looked much younger, and the bride, who is just forty, and a fino looking lady, looked very attractive in a blue tailor-made traveling cost ume with hat to match. After being showered vith the congratulations of those present the couple took a landau for Burgin and went thence to Cincin nati for a brief honeymoon. Captam Thompson is one of the foremost law yers in the state. lie is a Mexican and Confederate veteran, and among those who witnessed the happy event yesterday were three of his old wur comrades, Messrs. T. B. Phelps, J. C Robinson and Edwin Glave, who start ed from New Orleans to Mexico in Capt Thompson's company just fifty two years ago yesterday, the day of bis marriage. Harrodsbur Democrat.
