This position is one of prominence, and John will have many questions of importance brought before him. Col. Gaithcr is a man who appreciates apt ness and hustle in a man, and we would not be surprised at his landing Farra in some still more prominent po sition ere the war is over. Itev. C.M.KIed Married Rev. Chas.M.Ried was married Wed nesday to Miss Annie Kellcj', of Colo rado City, Colorado. The groom has been preaching in that city for some time and has quite a good situation.

On behalf of many Lancaster friends Tiik Ri:coi:d extends congratulations to the happ3 pair. Can Ge if They Wish. Semi one told a number of Lancas ter darkies that the Government did not want any of their race in this war, and immediately several got very pat riotic. J; or the benefit of these colored men we will say there are several recruiting ofiicers now at work in Kentucky and want all the able-bo- died-colored men they can get. Lieut Johnston,, of the V. S. Array, is at Richmond this week and, if those de siring to fight, bleed and die will only notify him, he will gladly come to Lancaster, examine and swear the men here and then pay their way to the front Andrew Jl, Pope. Andrew R. Pope died at his home in Boyle county Sunday evening, in the 01st year of his age. Mr. Pope was widely connected in Garrard county. The Advocate says he was born and reared in Boyle county. In our late war he was a member of Captain R. D Logan's company, of Col. J. W. Grigs by's regiment of cavalry, and was wounded in a fight at Milton, Tenn., a Minnie ball entering his wrist and coming out at the elbow. He was a Royal Arch Mason and exceedingly fond of the order. The funeral servi ces were held at New Provi lence Tues day afternoon at three o'clock, burial in Bellevue cemetery. The Democratic Convention. A very large crowd attended the Democratic Convention Saturday af ternoon. It met at 2 o'clock, and county chairman, George T. Farris, presided. Nothing outside the usual convention routine was done until the instructions were readied. It was the will of the convention to give the Lxote of Garrard to Mort Rothwell, but the rub came when the question of a second choice was reached. Mr. Roth well wanted the delegation to go in structed for him. with no second clause tacked on, but some of the Mc- Creary men objected and some little discussion was had. Mr. Rothwell finally withdrew his name altogether and the delegation went instucted to vote for McCreary first, Jast and all the time. G. Bright Swincbroad was secretary of the convention and CoL Jolyi W. Miller chairman of com mittee on resolutions. Luke Sherrow and Louie Leavell, two former repub licans, created much enthusiasm in the convention by "shaking the scales from, their eyes" and coming out full fledged democrats. A vote of thanks was given Senator Farris for the able manner in which he represented his district in the last legislature. The Royal is the highest grade baking powder fcaown.

Phil Price, Engineer Hen ry Lammers and Expressman Rice, will be retained on a run through Lancaster. Thess men have been run ning through here for several years, and by their polite and accDmmoda- ting manners have made many warm friends all along the line. By strict att jut ion to business, they al ways are in on time and never hae an accident Our neoDle know their ood qualities and hope the L. &. N. people will let them stay with us. A Great Context. The biggest, brightest .and best oratorical cantest of the season is now being arranged to be given in this city about the middle of next month. The affair will be for the benefit of the Baptist church and is being managed iy Miss Julia Reid. The contest is open to any young man of ability and the prize will be a years tuition atany college in Central Kentucky the win ner may choose. The exact date of the Conte&t has not yet been fixed, but will be announced in next issue of Tun Recoi:i. Did Good "Work. Messrs J. F. Ilines and J. B. Pence, who have been working in this neigh borhood for Bird, Dew it Hall, Knox- ville Nurserymen, completed their In- bors Monday and left for Paint Lick. The interest awakened on the subject of planting and caring for fruit trees will do much good and cause more at tention to be given this important matter. Messrs Ilines and Pence are clever gentlemen and understand their business. 'J m: Recokd bespeak? for them a good business wherever they go. 3Iore Fuss over Toll Gates. Judge Bnrnside tells The Record that the thirty days time, for which two guards were appointed at the double gate on Richmond pike having expired, a representative of the road, together with a lawyer came in and wanted the guards retained. The ju lge said that in order to retain the guards, an alii lavit would have to be filed stating that t'ie p -operty was in danger of being destroyed, etc. The parties then left Burnside's office and went to Stanford to see Ju lge Saullej-, upon learning of which, Burnside also went to see the circuit judge. The latter said he would hear all partiis interested and set today for them to come back b?forc him. Advises to Hold. Mr. T. J. Smith, Sr., in an interview with a Richmond Register report r recommended that all farmers be ad vised not to sell their wheat for 00 and 05 cents, as the price is bound to ad vance. He says there has been a short crop in California and other parts tf the West and that, by September, the market will be at least 25 cents higher on the bushel. He says that farmers who haven't the necessary storage room, instead of Eelling at the low price now oifered, should haul their grain to town, where they can get storage for it at l-2c a bushel per month. lie thinks that if this advice is followed Madison county will be at least $25,000 better off financially at the close of the year, as this amount will be kept at home instead of going into the hands of speculators. Good Purchases. S. B. White, of Richmond, purchas ed of J. S. Collins one pair heavy mules for 5275, to be used in his coal busi ness, wh'ch he will open up in a few days. Also of John W.

Douglass and Dock Herndon, pair gray mules at $25); of Revenna Harris, one pair at $225; of Pattia and Annio Dw-atherage, one pair at $230; of Hi Shearer, one mule at S130.

Million, one saddle mare; of Dill and Berryman, one road mare; of Joel Gentry, one road horse; of Taylor Ad ams, one Wilkes bay mare; of Louis Lamb, a nice yellow horse; a nice 3-ycar-old trotter by Emperor Wilkes, out of a mare by Vatican, and a pacirg gelding "said to be a wondor, trotted one half mile in 1:14, on the Fair ground track, also of A.

I'he various committees consisted of one uetegate to eaca committee lrom each county. During the wait for the committees to report, the convention was e- tirtameu by speeches lrom Hon. B. F. Peake, of Oldham, Captain Thorn, of Henry, Hon. W. B. Smith, of Richmond, and other gentlemen, who have "axes to grind." The committee on resolutions was the first to report, reaffirming allegi ance to the Chicago platform. Sec. The committee on credentials then report ed, seating all delegations, the com mittee on organization suggested the permanency of the temporary organi zation, and recommended that the Convention be governed by the laws of the last general assembly, in so far as they are applicable. They reserved their report as to the dropping of the hindmost man until such time as the Convention should demand it. Qhe secretary was then directed to call the roll of counties for candidates. Jes samine was the first, and Mr. J. Wil lard Mitchell oifered the name of Hon. B. A. Crutchcr. Pat Sul'ivan, of Mad ison, offered the name of James B. Mc Creary, and Hon. P.

At the night session nothing was done further than the ta king of three more ballots without re sult. The Convention then adjourned until eight a. m., Wednesday. Oa Wednesday morning the ballot ing was renewed, and all indications pointed to a dead-lock. Rockcastle's vote returned to McCrcary.

Another trainman said- he heard a high official say there was a strong probability of the company running the day passenger trains, which now go to Livingston, down this way.
