Determined efforts were made to indict the companies and the fight w'as not given up until the last min ute. Some of the jurors were stub born, however, and nine out of the twelve could not be brought s to favor it. If the Court of Appeals upholds the law. indictments may be returned in Boyle at a later term of court. Advocate... The Newspsjprr a Factor. Col. Thomas A. Davis, of the Mays ville Ledger, puts the following que?, tion : "Some people find out, when it is everlastingly too late, that a news paper like the Ledger speaks to an au dience of not less than 5,000 people 312 days in the year. This makes an ag gregate or 1,500,000 auditors a year. How long would it take a ward politi cian to "have his say" with thatnuni- ber of persons? Cutting Scrape. IJsn Guinn and Charlie Williams had duel with knives on Battle Row Sun day in which both men were terribly slashed. Guinn got the hot end of the tight and it was thought for a time he would die. Both men are "dead game" and the fight was a furious one. Guinn sometimes runs the engine In Tub Recoud office and, when sober, is a cood man, but wlien drinking is a warm number. Local Option Election Valid. The Court of Appeals of Kentucky has affirmed the judgement of the Mercer Circuit Court in the case of W. A. Bottoms, holding that the elect ion, voting whisky in the Harrods burg district, is volid, notwithstand ing the whole county had voted favor ing prohibition. Any district in a county can take a vote on the whisky question, and the majority in the district governs that district accord ing to this decision. Put Him On. A petition was circulated this week asking the City Council to either put on a night policeman, or change the present day man's time from day to night duty. The citizens are tired of being annoyed nearly every night, and, furthermore don't care to keep their bodies and property in danger of stray bullets. There is little need of a a ay man. L,et- a leuow no the same shooting in the day time that is done at night, and the citizens would hang him to the electric light ox-yoke in the Park. Contest. There will be a contest in elocution in the Chapel of thu Graded School building. Friday, May 5, at 7:30 r. m. Admission ten and til teen cent?.

Johnston. f-10-tf Main St. Lexington, Ky. Literary Note. "Princess Nadine," by Christian Reid, the complete novel in the May issue of Lippincott's Magazine, ap peals strongly to every lover of roman ce. The introduction of the Russo American Princess at the Mi-Careme and Battle of Rosesat Nice, where she is fittingly framed by a pink-tinted sea-shell of roses, and where she is seen for the first time by a wealthy Central American, who Is to influence her after-life, surely compels attention. That this man, whose indifference to the fair sex is exceptional, should im peril his life for her seems but natural, as we see, combined with the charm ing personality a character unspoiled by adulation; sympathetic, faithful, and brave. The story can be said truly to be among the best work of this popular writer. The Busted Bust.
