This work makes one of the greatest improvements in town. Jim now lives in as much style as the Prince of Wales. Short jCrop In Boyle. The Advocate says it is safe to say that the wheat yield in Boyle county will not, on an average, exceed fifty percent, of the usual crop. About twenty-five bushels to the acre is the top notch, but some fields in the west end will not be cut at all. City Council. At the regular July meeting of the Council, held Monday night, nothing of much importance was done, save to take steps 'n regard to enforcing the sidewalk prdinance. The matter was talked over and it was decided to immediately take action in all cases where property owners had failed and refused to comply with the order. A Paint Lick Enterprise. Adams' Fistula Salve, put up by Adams & Fish, Paint Lick, is meeting with ready sale every where.

The pistol-shooter and midnight howlers must not get the idea into their craniums that because Joe Pet ty Is no longer night policeman he can make no arrests. He is sworn in as workhouse keeper and not only has the authority, but it is his duty to ar rest any violator of the law. Run 'em In Joe. A dude behind the bars would be an interesting sight. Hew Grocery. Messrs Joseph Faulconer, Jr., of Danville, and Ed C. Gaines, of this city, have formed a partnership and will open a big line of groceries In the Thompson block on Richmond street. We do not know of two more honora ble, upright, christian gentlemen than are they, and if hustle and push count for ahy thing they will certainly suc ceed. Mr Faulconer is a brother of Bv Henry Faulconer, of this city. Beautiful disp Dry Goods at Jose lot of mid-summer Money to Loan. On good real estate. For particu lars apply at The Record office, tf.

Mr. Estes lost a lot of hay, corn, harness and a few implements. Origin of fire uliknown. The horse was roasted in the fire, it being too hot to get him out New Drue Store. Mr Fred P Frisbie has closed a con tract with the Hotel Co., for the new room in the hotel building on corner of Public Square and Richmond St. He tells The Record he will put in a complete and up-to-date stock "of drugs, druggists sundries, paints, oils, and in fact, everything to be found in first-class drug house. He will fit the store with the latest fixtures and the room will be a beauty. Mr Fris bie has completed his studies at a Philadelphia school of pharmacy and is thoroughly competent for the busi ness. Fred is a clever young fellow and is sure of success. Hamilton Powell. Mr. H. Clay Hamilton and Miss Laura Powell were married Thursday evening by Elder Jesse Walden, at. the latter's residence, on Lexington street. The cowple have been sweet hearts for a lorg time and the marri age was expected by many. Desiring to steal the march on their friends, they drove to the residence of Rev. Kuykendall, at Marksbury. The lat ter was not at home, and they drove back to Elder Walden's,arrivingabout nine o'clock. The bride is a daughter of Mr. C. D. Powell, one of Lancas ter's leading merchants, and is a young lady of fine intellect and accom plishments. Mr. Hamilton is mana ger for the Western Union Telegraph Co. He is popular and industrious. The Record joins their long list of friends in wishing them many yearsof happiness. Many Letters. The committee appointed by the City Council, to advertise for bids on waterworks has received a bushel bas ketful of letter.-; from parties all over the United States. The suggestion to advertise was a good one, as it will cost comparatively nothing, and will enable our people to ascertain just what a system will cost. Its folly to talk of putting in a plant unless we know exactly what it will cost. All propositions and estimates will be ooked into on July 11th, and the com mittee will make a report to the Coun cil. Then the matter can be taken up for consideration. Every! oly is for waterworks "if the railroad is built." Now, neighbors, the railroad is going to be built, so dont worry on that point. In figuring up our business for the fiscal year, we have 1GI cents profits. This money will be wagered with any one against his old straw hat that within eighteen months Lancaster will have waterworks and the South-' ern railway. Put this in your cob pipe and puff it. Farmers Read. We are needing all of our Sacks, and many of our friends have neglect ed to return the Sacks we have accom modating them with. We lost by fire about 6,000 Sacks, consequently we need every Sack that is due us. We bought 6,000 Second-hand cotton Sacks, branded "Schwartz & Bros. St. Louis, Mo.," these Sacks are in the bands of our farmer friends, and they are using them for milling purposes. A visit to Lancaster Flouring Mills will convince anyone of the fact. We also have several thousand sacks branded "Ballard So Ballard Co.," or "Ballard Mills," and we have also thousands of other sacks, and we no tice these sacks are being used for milling and other purposes. Now we ask you in all kindness to see that every sack due us and la your pocess- ion is returned at once and you ,wJ)l Keep cooV by using one of Joseph's pretty fansVY It's a little late in the season, but our lines of Ribbons, Hosieyi Gloves Handkerchiefs, etc., are waU filled.

Wast will presant them to me, properly proven, on or be fore August 1, 1899 W. T. West. Scarcity of Water The scarcity of water is growin serious. Many cisterns have given out, wells are low and stock watei very scarce. If a fire should break out in town it would, as it always does, have to burn its course. Notice to Furmcrs. Should you not want to sell youi wheat at present prices, and want to hold for a better market, we desire t inform you we have made arrange ments to store 15;000 or 20,000 bushels wheat here in Lancaster on the usual terms, to include fire risk. So bring us your wheat- We also have arrange ments for storage account at Louis ville. H. A. B. Marksbury & Son. New Livery Firm. Messrs. Burton & Barker have tak en charge or tne Dig livery stable, op posite the Mason House. They arc both expert horse men, and know v good animal, and, greatest of all, know how-to keep one in proper shape. The ire stocking the stable with new out fits and will have one of the best sta bles in Kentucky. You can't find tw( cleverer boys than Billy Burton aw1 Charley Barker, and The Record be speaks for them unbounded success. Getting In Line. Those of our citizens over whose land the new railroad will run are re alizing the great good the road will do for the county and are talking very reasonably about it, As we have sta ted several times, we are satisfied no one will want to gouge their own home people, and all parties will take actu al damage done them. True Kentuck- ians will stand up for one anothei when the rub comes, and we arc satis lied all Garrard county people will pull together in this matter. Thh road will be the greatest blessing the county could get, and if it is allowed to slip, we might as well fold oui hands and never make another move for progress. As Otkers See Vs. In its 'Lancaster Court Day Items,' the Stanford Democrat says: "I want ed to get to the court-house, but the pavements were so obstructed by cat tle that I found it a difficult task and had to catch a 2-year-old steer by the horns and pull him off the steps be fore I could get into that building. The shade trees along the edge of the pavements made the cattle feel like they were out in the blue-grass past ures and they lounged around the store doors with an air of perfect ease. The ladies needed balloons to make the trip around the square. The sidewalks were dangerous and it does seem to me that the cattle ought to be put in shady places, elsewhere than under the awnings of the business houses. The smell of mean whisky right off The Shoot" and cattle sweltering in the sun was not as delicious as the new mown hay in the meadows along the roads leading into Lancaster." PUSHING THE WORK. SHrveyors are RbbbIhs Lines to Drip ping Springs and On. The railroad surveyors completed ted the second line into town this week. It runs over, or nearly so, the first line mentioned in The Record, and comes close to Marksbury, crosses the Lexington pike three times,strlkes Col. W S Beazley, H. C. Sutton and on into town over Dr. Herring's land and strikes the L & N near the S T Leavel property. The engineers say this is by far the most practical line, as it is good grade, very straight, and will not cost near as much money as the line mentioned in last issue of The Record. The line is now being run 'to Dripping Springs and will run within a few hundred yards of that resort. It then goes on to Rockcastl : and will miss Crab Orchard by a'xmt 21 miles. The engineers are well pleased with the grade and route so far, and are much encouraged over the line in front of them, as far as they have been. They will complete their papers up to this point and send them at once to headquarters. Excursion to Old Feint Comfort Va. The Chesapeake & Ohio Ry. has arranged a series of Excursions to Old Point Comfort Va., during the month of July, August and September. These Excursions will be run on the Second and Fourth Tuesdays in each month. The tickets will be good on the regular trains, and will be limited to 21 days.

Guessing for tne Range. As had been advertised in the Rec ord, the big cooking range at Joseph's was given away Tuesday. An im mense gourd had been placed in the show window, and every purchaser to the amount of $l-was' given a guess at the number of seed in the gourd. Tues day Mr. Joseph selected G. Bright Swinebroad, Capt. Mike Salter and J. Raymond Haselden to count the seed. The gourd was opened and found to contain 673 seed. No one had guessed the number, but Sig Perin named 672 and Mrs Harris 674, and the range was given to them jointly. It was inter esting to see the guesses. They rang ed all the way from 8 to 10,000 and one fellow guessed that it contained none at all. The plan was a perfectly fair and just one, and has been a big ad for Mr. Joseph. Teachers' Institute. The Garrard County Institute for white teachers will .be held in the Court House, at Lancaster, on Mon day, July 24, continuing five days, with Prof. J. H. Patterson, of Lancaster Graded School as conductor. On Tuesday evening (the 2oth) an enter tainment entitled "The Heart of Cuba," will be given, conducted by Prof. H. K. Taylor, principal of Lou isville Training School. He will be assisted by Sepor Jose Andonegui, a violinist of wide reputation. The Colored Teachers' Institute will convene at the Court House, July 17, and continue five days, to be con ducted by Prof. C. C. Monroe, of Ow- ensboro. On Tuesday evening, (the 18th), Prof. Sneed's band will give an entertainment. All teachers falling to attend the institute will forfeit their certificates. Both Institutes will be held in the Court House. 7-20 Elisa J. Lusk, Sup't. A Popular ITIrh. Notwithstanding the fact that Hon. John W. Yerkeshas stated positively that he would not make the race for governor, there Is an inclination a- mong republicans all over the state tf try and induce him at accept it. There is no cleaner and better equipped man in Kentucky than the clever Boyle county gentleman. A lot of re publicans met at Lexington the other day to talk over the affairs of their party, and In a report the Herald says: 'It is claimed that there is only one man in the Republican party who might be given the nomination for Governor who is strong enough to de feat tne Kenton statesman, and that man is the Hon. John Yerkes, "of Dan villerand it is hinted that the con ference Friday night was for the pu - pose or coming to some agreement whereby the other candidates, or the strongest of them, would withdraw ana auow rentes to do nominated with the bone of saving the party this fall. Mr. Yerkes has been prominently mentioned for the office, but he has made no .fight or canvass for the noml nation, but it is said that he would not be averse to accepting it if it were ten d ired to him. Some say he would rut Accept it. The iWpubl loan party has bad a taste of State rule and are very anxious to continue In office, and they think that if a strong man is put up Goebel will be defeated., Their only salvation seems to be in Yerkes, and It would m t be surprising to see. him the nxHsOaee of tbe party.!' At the regular business meeting of the board of directois of the National Bank of Lancaster, held last week, 'Squire W. 11. Kinnaird tendered his resignation as cashier, and same was accepted. 'Squire Kinnaird has been cashier of this bank since lSi."i, the date of its organization. During all this time he has remained steadfastly at his post of duty, and one can al most count on his fingers the days Mr. Kinnai.d lias been away from his desk. During all these years, there has never boen a hitch in the running of the business. Tlio bank, was first 1(k -ted where Mr. Cunvy now has his gro eery store. It was then moved into the old Ray building, back i.f the Hemphill corner. While located ii: tne latter place, a new building was erected on the present site and it was years to his life. The directors very wisely Mr. S. C. Denny as cashier. elected He ha: MISBsassss assswLLLLissflS later destroyed by fire. While the present handsome quarters were being constructed the bank transacted its business where Mr. H. M. Ballou now has his grocery. During the bank's existence it has had to pass through several panicy times, but the careful management by its cashier enabled it to weather the storms, and it has nev er failed to declare a dividend, a mat ter which few banks of its age can boast of. Mr. Kinnaird tendered his resigna tion by reason of his age, and the fur ther fact that he has so much private business in his hands to look after. He is guardian for a number of par ties, county treasurer, trustee and committee in a number of cases, all of which require much attention. He has certainly earned a rest, and all be lieve that his laying aside of the cash ier's worry and work will add many been connected with the bank for ma ny years, and has been assistant cash ler for a long time. No more careful or painstaking official could have been selected, and the directors will cer tainly never have cause to regret thei: action. Mr. Denny is a Dolite. kirn and attentive young gentleman, one who is always ready to favor a friend. He is a man of splendid business qual locations and possesses that sound judgment and discretion so necessary in the position he fills. No young man has more friends or is more popular imong all classes than is Cabell Denny, ind we know we do not exaggerate in saying that if the people had a say in his appointment there would not have been a dissenting voice. Mr. J. Fleece Robinson, Jr., who- was heretofore book-keeper, was made as sist cashier, and Mr. R. T. Embry ad vanced from assistant to book-keeper. Both these gentlemen have been faith ful and efficient, and their promotions are justly deserved. Taken as a w.hole, the new officers complete probably the youngest set of officials in the state. Mr. Denny is only 34 years of age, and Messrs. Rob inson and Embry are his juniors by several years. The Rest on the market.
