A Public Library.
3Ir. A. L. Wilhitt is in town with
the idea of establishing a station of
of the new Parmelee system of the
Traveling Library. This plan is prac
tically the same as that in vogue in
Chicago and other large cities, that is,
a Central Library is divided up into
sections, or divisions, and sent to
different parts of the city. In this
case, the central Library is the home
ottice of the company and the stations
are located in different towns in the
state. He lias furnished the editor a
catalogue of the Central Library. It
lists 1,000 books, and comprises, we
believe, as complete and interesting a
st of books as we have never seen.
We have also looked into the financial
standing of the company and find them
O. K.. They are incorporated for 50.
030, over half of which is paid up. Let
ters from leading banks of Chicago and
Des 3Ioines. report them as having
fulfilled all their agreements for the
13 odd years, that they have been in
the library work. The day has gone
by when we need tell an intelligent
people that we need a library; "this is
granted. The only questson now is,
how can one bese be established and
maintained? This is unquestionably
fie cheapest and most practicable
system of supplying libraries that we
have ever seen. The books are care
fully selected by competent persons,
and the library is kept up-to-date by
supplying the latest and most popular
books at no additional cost to the
patrons. If the station be established
, at this town, of course arrangements
must be made while 31 r. Wilhitt is
here. Leading citizens of neighbor
ing towns are patronizing the Library

Don't Rlns So Lonsr.
The darndest nuisance in Lancaster
is the court house bell. It is large
enough for a city fire alarm, and can
be heard for miles in the country. It
is rung frequently half dozen times a
day, and while in operation its almost
impossible to hear one's voice on the
Square. If a pig trots across the
street, some fellow proceeds to ring
this bell, and when a trial comes up
Dave Ross rings from two to three
hours, by the watch. People of a ner
vous temperment believe that one
hour's continual ringing is sufficient
to notify all concerned of the time
and will be obliged if Dave will slow
down a little.
A Fine Show.
Cooper & Co's old-fashioned, one
ring circus drew a big crowd to town
Saturday At both performances the
tent was crowded. The show is one of
the best on the road, the performers
being far above the average. The
Japs, the educated horse, Bernatta
the clown, the band and many other
features were greatly enjoyed and ap
pla'uded. 3Ir. Hennessy, the man
ager, and 3Ir.Oatman, ringmaster.are
clever gentlemen, and they permit
nothing objectionable under their
canvass. The show is one which can
be visited by the most refined people.
The best people of the town and
county patronized the show. In the
afternoon the order was splendid but
at night we regret to say the show
people and audience wereattUe mrcy
of a drunken, contemptible: mob of
ruffians. These toughs yelled at the
performers, annoyed the audienee and
indulged in conduct which was dis
gusting in the extreme. No officer ap
peared to make any effort toward
keeping order, which fact does not
speak well for our authorities. Cooper
& Co., paid enormous prices for every
thing they got here, and it looks pret
ty bad that they should not ba protec
ted from the annoyance and insults by
a lot of drunken toughs. Beside this,
the people who paid to attend the
performance should be given protec
tion. How long are the people going
to pay taxes and get no police protection?
Tilings Rapidly Slmplns up for tbe
Blssot SIiow of the Year In
Next week the much-talked of Dan
ville Fair comes off.
It commences on Wednesday, the
30th and continues for three days.
As the time approaches the indica
tions of a successful week increase.
And with big premiums and all of the
novelties, there is no reason to expect
anything else.
There are no fairs in the State to
conflict seriously with this one, and
all of the big stables of show horses
will naturally come this way. The
premiums offered are liberal enough
to attract the best. The $110 roadster
ring and the $100 saddle ring are sam
plespaid in cash, without discount.
The balloon ascension each day, the
big cake walks, the pretty baby rings,
the fancy turnout prize and the pre
mium for the worst turnout, to say
nothing of other innocent diversions,
will draw the crowd.
The music will be the very best ob
tainable. Go to this fair and meet
your friends from all over the blue
grass. Harry Ge-tt Funny.
Harry Giovannoli, of the Danville,
Advocate, opened his head and spake:
"Louis Landram, theclevereditorof
Lancaster Record, is very muchoverhet
over the prospect of the Southern road
passing through "Danville, instead of
perforating his own town. Its this way,
Louis. When the Southern railroad
folks told the news editor of this paper
that they wanted to come through Dan
ville, whether or no, the news editor
told them not to do it, that Lancaster
needed the road worsc'n we did, but
the railroad men insisted that Dan
ville was too good a thing to lose, and
they'd come here if possible. But,
that's all right, old boy. If the South
ern insists upon annexing us, we'll do
a little expanding on our own account
and take in all of Garrard county, in
cluding Lancaster, and we'll locate
the union depot right in your public
square, which will then be the geo
graphical center of Danville. There's
nothing small about us."
Danville people's neighbors havent
a thing which Danville people will not
cheerfully divide with themselves.
Letter of Acceptance.
Point Leavell, Ky., Aug. 9. 1899,
Mrs. Francis E. Beauchamp, Sec'y.
Lexington, Ky
Dear 3Iadam: Replying to yours of
the 5th inst. notifying me that I was,
at the recent State Prohibition Con
vention, accorded the honor of nomi
nation for Governor upon the Prohi
bition ticket at the ensuing Novem
ber election, allow me to say that I
am altogether unable to express to
you and the noble and selfsacrificing
women and men who attended that
convention, the sense of honor and
pride which I attach to such a com
pliment. Feeling and knowing my
unworthiness of such an honor, I can
not have my willing consent to accept,
but as was said upon the floor of that
convention by our gallant and faith
ful, tried and true, Col. T. B. Demaree,
to one of the newspaper reporters
could not refuse anything the Prohi
bition party might give me, or put
upon me", or words to that effect.
With this love and veneration for the
Prohibition cause and all that it
stands for and with the desire that
the interests of the cause of Prohibi
bitions may be upheld, I shall, as
above said, unwillingly accept the dis
tinguished honor, and although un
able, on account of pressing home -duties
to make anything like a full can
vass of the State, I promise you and
the Prohibition party in Kentucky to
do all that mylimitedtime and means

will permit, to advance and promote
the warfare that all Christian citizens
and voters ought to be working
against legalized crime, I hope, that
as long as life and reason shall last
with me, to be found an ardent advo
cate and supporter of the principles
enacted in the platform accompanying
this nomination.
With the wish that every temper
ance advocate in the State may be
come aroused and quickened to a sense
of duty during the coming campaign,
believe me, as ever for prohibition.

Narrow Averted Saturday Night. Fire
In Dangerous Locality.
Saturday night about, 8:30 o'clock,
two young ladies at 3Ir. E. W. Harris'
residence saw a flame shoot from
the kitchen roof of the Hamilton Ho
tel, on Danville, street. They tele
phoned quickly to Clay Hamilton who
rushed up stairs and saw, what to all
seemed, a fatal blaze. The alarm was
given and people flocked to the spot.
The lire caught from a defective chim
ney or flue in the second story of the
frame building and had eaten between
the ceiling and roof. Smoke poured
from the eaves and filled the entire
building. Everyone who saw it be
lieved the house doomed, and a hasty
removal of furniture, etc., was com
menced. The roof was cut into, a big
blaze extinguished and many left
thinking the fire out. 3Ir. S. C. Den
ny, cashier of the .National Bank,
thought otherwise and remained on
the roof. His belief was well founder'.
for in less time than it takes to till it,
another blaze shot out and the . came
the hard fight. 3Ir. Denny's energy
spurred up others and several soon
climbed the ladders and passed buck
ets to the gallant young hanker, who
continued to dash the water until ev
ery spark was extinguished. Fortu
nately a cistern is located directly back
of the building, for had it been nec
essary to carry water any distance the
building would have been consumed.
Had it burned, the houses of 3Ir. Book-
out, 3Iisses Tillett and H. A. B.
3Iarksbury would surely have gone
too, as they are only a few feet apart,
and, with only buckets to fight with,
the saving of them would have been
out of the question. In addition to
this, Thompson's Jewelry store is only
a few feet on the opposite side, and,
as it has several unprotected windows,
the chances are it too would have
caught. Had it done so, the fire would
have wiped out one-fourth of the
Public Square (from Thompson's to
and including the post office). This
sounds a little unreasonable but when
it is remembered that we have abso
lutely nothing but buckets with which
to fight lire, and the only water sup
ply being from a few private cisterns,
it can be readily seen that should one
big building burn it would be impos
sible to save adjoining property. So
general was the belief that all below
on Danville street would burn, that
we folks living along there packed our
belongings and had them ready to be
moved out.
This miraculous escape ought to cast
a wet blanket over some of the kickers
who are "erposed" to water works.
With one hose turned into the Ham
ilton building the fire would been in
stantiy drowned out, much excitement
prevented ana Mrs. liamiltons furni
ture -saved from almost complete de
molishment. The building is damaged probably
$100, and the furniture probably twice
that amount. 3Ir. and 3Irs. Letcher
