He was thrown a long rope and rescued. The poor fellow had come in on the 2:52 train and got along very nicely until leaving the row of gasoline lamps which stop at the work house. The streets.from that point are as dark as a stack) of black cats. If there are to be no lights on the Public Square all night, rait fences should be erected around tbe mud holes thereon. Some night some one will drive into one of them and, horse buggy and driver will be droomed. A fellow would rather risk the mud holes than take chances of running over de livery carts, cutting harrows, boxes, etc, which line the sidewalks. ' Old Fashioned fair at Danville.

The local political pot has not warm ed up enough to sing yet, and it looks like matters in that line are ex ceedingly lukewarm. A number of Mr. Goebel's most ardent supporters arc doing considerably talk, but the inti-Goebelites and republicans are taking little interest in the race. The move to hold another democratic con vention at Lexington was not heeded in this county, and if any are opposed to the Kenton man they have decided to go about their business and take their revenge at the polls. We sup pose the republicans are satisfied with their nominee, as we have heard no talk about the ticket at all. In the legislative race, the democrats have talked of quite a number of good men, but no one has any idea who the nominee will-be. The repub licans will nominate Lewis L. Walker for this office, and it is not believed he will have opposition for the nom ination. As stated above, the pot has not commenced to boil, and, so far, there is very little interest manifested. There's always a calm before a storm, however, and we may yet get into one of tbe hottest elections ever held in Garrard. Let us hope otherwise. Big court begins Monday.

Those who have heard this consecrated and gifted young minister express great delight with his sermons and with him person ally. He is attractive both in and out of the pulpit and will be cordially wel come upon every visit to our city. What Shall We Do) At every town one visits he finds the railway waiting room filled by loafing negroes. Right here at home they almost take the depot at night train times, while at Winchester, Stanford and several other points we have visited recently, it is simply aw ful. They crowd white ladies out completely, and at Winchester the other night six ladies were compelled to cross the track and sit on the freight depot platform, in the cold night air for nearly two hours. At Stanford Monday night the writer met two la dy relatives and they were compelled to sit on a baggage truck in front of the depot for an hour, while the only waiting room open was crowded with loud-smelling coons. We are the ne gro's friend as long as ho stays in his place but when they come to force themselves with white people, its time to call a halt. The rail road author ities were notified of the Winchester occurrence, and the gobbliris will get someone else if passengers are not given protection. " - ' The big circus will hi here Saturday.

He is now in Manilla harbor within two miles of the destroyed Spanish fleet. He does not know how long he will be there. His letter is quite interesting and we wish we had the space to re produce it. Quite a Curiosity. Capt. W. C. McFarland, who was recently retired from the lfith In- fantry, is here visiting the family of Judge Bumside, and his brother-in- law, the editor of The Recoud. He brought with him one of the new Mauser pistols. The weapon is shap ed very much like the Colts, but is far different in mechanism. The car tridges carry the dum-dum bullets and come six made together. It has a de tachable stock, which is hollowed out and serves as a scabbard. It is an in teresting weapon, and the first of the kind brought here. Capt. McFarland exhibited the pistol at the Lexington fair last week. Kissing Bus's Victim. Until Tuesday last, Ernest Brown had regarded the reported presence of the kissing bug in this country as a sort of tin de siecle joke. He has changed his mjnd. On the day men tioned, about 10 o'clock, one of the in sects flew into Logan's dry goods store, where Brown is a clerk, circled once or twice about his head, and before he could strike it down stung him on the end of his nose, jnstantly making a swift exit through the door. Uttering a terrible yell, Brown rushed out upon the sidewalk, where he continued to beat the air in the most dramatic manner, thinking the bug was still in hot pursuit. He was greatly excit ed. He could scarcely be convinced that the insect was concealed some where on his person, but upon being conducted to a drug store and given a powerful opiate his excitement was somewhat allayed. A single drop of blood oozed from the punctured spot. Mr. Brown describes the bug as hav ing a long, yellow body, red eyes and a bill as keen as a cambric needle. The pain has subsided, but his nasal organ is still so distorted that he has the ap pearance of being a bantam weight de Bergerac . ,.-". . . Dr. B. F. Walters will be out of town until the 25th.

The llullroad. We admit The Recoud hassomulod a little over-enthusiastic in its reports regarding the new railroad, but w are now more confident than ever that Garrard county will get the prize. We nave all along been in possession of :i little "inside" information which we were not at liberty to divulge, but anyone could read between the lines anu see that our statements were not air castles. Some of our people are some-what inclined to be donl.tin.- Thomases, but they should not be so hasty to jump at conclusions. Now, nereare a rew facts we will state which go to show that Garrard is "t,bi people" in the case. In the first place, tne bouthern Railroad Co.. calcnl.-itwi that this road would cost $25,000. per mue. Mr. Kespess' survey and pro tile show that the lino so far as surviv ed, (which is nineteen miles beyond Brodhead) will not average $15,000 per mile. In the next nlace. he was limited to one per cent, in grade and curvature. His profile shows that at no point so far does the curvature or graue get. as nign as ins limit. Now that he ts into the only "stretch" that will take him into Jellico, does it look J reasonable to believe that the com pany will go to the enormous expense, and delay in time to run another line, which is ten chances to one will not come within the limit of curvat. urn and grade? Nay, nay. Pauline. Tho Southern has here just what she wants viz: a one per cent road, exactly half way between the L. & N. and Cincin nati Southern most all the way. W e make the above statements be cause they come from an indisputable source, and for the further reason that some may think the road a myth. iNow, there is but one thing left for us to do. It is for the people to get together and secure the right of wav through this county. The road will not be built through Garrard unless she gives the right of way. Nearly every land owner seen has been very reasonable in his demands, and we be lieve all will wheel into line. But the thing to do now is to get the matter in black and white. There is not a person in Garrard county that will not be benefitted by this road, and ail will see it this way if they will only stop and study the case. The farmer will be given two shipping routes to Cin cinnati and Louisville, and, greatest of all, it will open a route for him to ship his grain and other products to tne boutuern market, which will, ere long, far surpass the north. Th is road runs through the finest coal and tim ber in Kentucky, and, being on a di rect line, will it not give you better rates than you could possibly get other wise? By giving you better rates to market, and furnishing you coal and lumber cheaper, is not that a benefit to you? This Is a serious matter and one of vital importance to every res ident of the county. We will have to uauu uruunu me nat" to pay for this right of way, but, dear reader, what. you contribute will return to you ten- ioid. we know of almost enough money already promised to pay for the entire right.of way, provided some fel low does mot waat to googe his neigh barandtfbmand twice the price of the land Our neighboring counties, Boyle and Lincoln, are hustling for the road, but their only chance for securing it is by" Garrard failing to put up the right of way, and in this we are. confident they re on a cold trail.
