Come and get prices and examine goods. M. D. nuaiiES, Agt That Mcrltt IJIble The "In and About Kentucky" man in the Courier Journal pokes fun a' our reference to Merritt's bible as be ing 503 years old, and proceeds to tell the people that movable types were not in existence that far back. Now if our friend is so well up on types it seem3 that he ought to know that they frequently get mixed in the cjses and errors will creep in, no matter how particular one read, his proof. As to the bible, one of any kind or any date would doubtless ba a great cur iosity to the In and About man. We meant to say the Merritt book was one hundred years old. Pay It Cheei fully. Some folks kick on pa3'ing the Gre ded School tax because they have no children attending the institution. This does not show much publ:e spV.t edness. The school is the best i:ist -tution the town ever had, and becausr a few people don't care to p y a doll r or so tax will not break it up, you may rest assured. People ought to be glad they have any of this world's eocdi to pay tax on. If we were lucky enough to have a small fortune, you can bet your bottom dollar we would be will ing to pay tax on it. If anyone is overburdened by taxes, we will gjadly aceept their property and keep the tax paid. House for Kent. The Cottage just insi-le the toll-gate on Stanford pike, occupied by W. McC. Johnston, will be for rent by or before the last of September. It has three nice rooms, large 'kitchen, two porch es, splendid cistern water right in the porch, large yard, splendid garden, good stable and buggy house, large lot, and is every way a desirable resi dence. It is freshly painted and in thorough repair throughout It has a good servants house of three rooms that readily rent for thirty-six dollars a year. Any one desiring to move to town where they can educate their children for nothing, would do well to examine this place. For information call on, or address W. McC. Johnston or W. J. Romans. sep-a-tr. The Second at Lexington. A'ter many delays, the Second Reg iment has, at last reached Lexington and is now quartered at Camp Hamil ton. Colonel Gaither brought about 1,100 men, all of whom are ready for duty. Five sick men were left at the Leither hospital. All of the convas cents have been furloughed during the past week, the total number be ing about 2G0. The regiment was not paid at.Chickimauga, as expected, but the men will be paid at Lexington. A dispatch says while the boys look a lit tle worse for wear, they are as hearty and sturdy a lot of soldiers as ever seen by even the oldest inhabitants. They are soldiers, every one of them, and should they have had a chance to tackle the Spaniards, it is safe to say Spain would have been compelled to go out of the country to get more re cruits. Later. A dispatch says, the regi ment will be paid off and mustered out at once, as all. the officers are ready to quit, there being no prospect of their being .needed. ...... Col. W. S.
