It is perfectly nat ural for every man to think his moth er the bst person on earth, (pity tin one who does not think so) Being- a devout christian, our mother striven hard to train us up in the wav which we slu.uld go, ami ntver did we hav c.mse to reirret our actons, when fo lowing- her advice and teaching.

It you will stop to think of it. ninety-nine out of every hundred o the "strictly party men" i.re b'owing around for the simple reason that the. have an axe to grind. They are wha. may be truthfully called "Partisans lor Revenue Only."' Such people give us a pain in the abdomen. If there were fewer elections say one in five years these people would soon starve out. r UK desire to get something for nothing, has. grown to disgustingly large proportions among people lite years. The lutot and silliest "break" is made by a company of sol diers who were mustered into service at Newport, Ivy-., in 1850, and, by some oversight, were never mastered out Those left of this company met at xsewport, Sunday, and decided to make a fiht to compel the state to pay them for all the time since muster ed in, claiming that as they were not mustered out the pay should necessa rily go on. We do not suppose one of the men would dare make oath that his "services" have been worth a pen ny to the Commonwealth. As unrea so l hs as this move may appjar, it is about on a par with many other tj'pes of rascality practiced every day by people too infernally lazy to do honest work, and who expect to get seme thing for nothing. The London Speaker commenting on the slight foundation for the Span ish claim that Spain should be reliev ed of Tha Cuban debt, says: "If invest ors felt that international loans incur red against the will of the people would not attach to the country in the event of a change of government there would be less of that monetary sup port of mis-government which has dis graced the high finance of the Nine teenth century." The Speaker de clares that Spain has for many years charge 1 up an enormous debt to Cuba in the hopa of saddling it on the Uni ted States when the inevitable loss of the is'.and should come about. Tiih Peace Commissioners are hav ing a picn!c. They are wined and dined, work about two hours a day and receive outrageously large pay from Uncle Sam.

News has reached here of the lynching of Arch Uaur, colored, who committed an assaulton and attempted to murder An nie Morrison, oldest daughter of Hen ry Morrison, a prominent farmer of Cumberland count-. The crime was committed at the Mor rison home Friday afternoon about 3 o'clock. The members of the Morrison house hold were visiting in the neighborhood, except the eldest daughter, who re mained at home to care for the house. Uaur, unnoticed, went direct to Mor rison's home. Miss Morrison screamed for help when he entered, but' no one was near enough to hear her, though the house was close to one of the most frequent ed public roads. She fought the fiend with despera tion, but the Negro drew a piece of sharp iron, striking her two or three blows on the head and inflicted wounds that may prove fatal. He fled, believ ing his victim dead. When the neighbors learned of the horrible affair they formed a mob and pursued the Negro with bloodhounds. They trailed him to a small cabin within five miles of where the crime was committed. The door was quickly broken down. The Negro hearing the noiss, tried to make his escape through a window, but failed. When they entered he begged for mercy, but a noosed rope was quickly thrown overhishcad and abouthis neck and he was dragged, more dead than alive, to the woods, where the rope was tossed oyer the lim' of a tree he was hauled into the air, and the life re maining soon passed out of his body. The lynchers left the"body and disap peared. Eight bullet holes were found in the body Saturday morning. The remains were buried by Uaur's rela tives. GOEBEL LAW UPHELD.

However, each Saturday as we eagerly peruse the pages oi treasuretl items about our iriends aa.l tneir welfare, we more liriuly resolve to let them know how pleasantly wc are situated. '1 cday ends our first month of school and a very pleasant mouth, indeed, haa it bjen, lor we certainly have a m del school with all the modern eonveuien- c -s. With all due courtesy to Ota ivcntucicy ana her school-system, we shall have to confess (to you Kentuck-' laus) that we are better pleased with he llocsier school-system than ever. Everything is more systematic. The tenant ollieer has already been around to investigate the attendance; but he did not find any out of our senool and we suppose he found very lew out any where. The pupils attend reju.arly, iiQu wm uuring ine entire winter. Although we have had our Institute of one week, we have a Township In stitute one Saturday in each month during the school term, in which we discuss our reading circle work, Pla to's Republic and Social Element, and a so other subjects, as Method, School .Management, and some of the common branches. Besides these we have oar County .teacher's Association on Fri day and Saturday after Thanksgiving, o you see we rarely ever laek the chance of mingling with fell ov-teach ers. If we did not have a faint recollec tion of reading an article some months a-jo penned by our worthy editor in winch he praised the meritorious points of Hoosierdom and contested th -m with some of the dirkest faults of the grand old State, Kentucky, we should greatly fear that we have boasted too much of one of the grand est things of this State, the school system; but, as it is we feel per ectlv safe, and shall leave well enough alone, at least until next time. HocsiEit Pedaoogue W WAY. WOMEN used to think " fe rn ale diseases " could only be treated after "lo c a 1 examina tions" by physi cians.
