Of course there are a few, but very few. Our people are almost a unit for progress. A general giggle went around when telephones were spoken of, and electric lights were hooted at, but now the people would not do with out either.lt will be the same with the water. After the plant is in op eration the people will wonder hpw they ever got along without them. Tlie Rati Road. As stated in last issue of The Rec ord, the .committee finished its work of seeing the land owners, and all, save one or two, agreed to leave the matter to a committee to agree on the damages. When the men meet they will go over the land, and in case they cannot agree a third man will be se lected by the two. As soon as this is done it will not take long to secure the subscriptions. Our people are ful ly awakened to the importance of se curing this road and everybody will give according to his means. The matter has been greatly delayed by reason of the farmers being busy. In terest in the matter continues to grow and our people are determined to leave no stone unturned that will assist in getting this, the greatest benefactor the country could hope for.

Saturday night as John Leavoll, a highly respected young white man, was coming through the notorious Battle Row, he was struck on the head witli a large rock. No oqg seemed to know who threw it, and the bov came to town and had Dr. Acton dress the injury, which at the time was considered serious. Leavell was taken to tlie borne of his mother, Mrs. Susie K, Leavell, on the Buckeye pike. Sunday his skull was trepaned. Lem ell had to pass through Battle Row in order to get to town from his home, and no cause can be assigned for the dastardly deed. He is a young man of high standing, and a nephew of Arch K. and Wm. F. Kavanaugh. A strong effort is being made to learn t e guilty, but the denizens of the notor ious hell-hole will stick together and shield oneanother In any kind of de vilment. Several Accidents. Last Friday was one of accidents. While driving on Lexington street, Miss Virgie Conn's horse became frightened and ran into a cart, throw ing she and her sister-in-law, Mrs. Lucy Conn and'baby into the street. Miss Conn was severely injured and the other lady badly jarred. They were moved to the residence of R. H. Batson and Dr. Acton summoned. He found Miss Conn to have a rib broken and the other lady badly bruised. They were taken home Sunday and are rapidly improving. The same day Tom Burdett, engi neer at Leavell & Son's Planing Mills, got his hand caught in the machinery and badly lacerated. That afternoon Mr. J. M. Farra had a close call. While standing on the new hotel building, a stray bullet, supposed to have been fired by one of the numerous reckless users of fire arms, struck his hat and broke the bark on his head. Had the bullet come half an inch lower, John would have now been telling St. Peter how he would improve the New Jeiusahm by having the Southern Railway come tuso Beautiful dress Goods at JosEPfi'sr ' Have ydur shoes repaired for winter.

George Denny, of Lexington, will address the voters of Garrard county at the Court House tomorrow Friday, at 1:30 o'clock. Being an old Garrard boy and a splendid speaker the Judge will have a big crowd out to hear him. The Courier-Journal announces tl e engagement of Miss Chastine McGregr or and Mr, Ernest Sprague. The cere mony will be said in Christ Church Cathedral, that city, Nov. 21. Miss McGregor is a great favorite in Lan caster society, having been the fre quent visitor of Mrs. W. R. Cook. Hon.

The Blind Tiger cases were called yesterday and continued 'til tomorrov , s some knotty law problems were in volvcd yesterday, Judge Brown va- cite.l the bench and Capt Herndon chosen to preside. It would have ta ken ten Philadelphia lawyers and fif teen Dutchmen to understand the law terms being used, so we anticipate Judge Herndon s decision to be that "Blind Tiger isa varmint wnich roams the woods with the 'Painter'." No Formal Opening. Miss Sallie D. Tillett wishes to say to her customers that, owing to the critical illness of her brother, she will have to omit the customarv "Ooen- ing" this Fall. She has a lovely-line of the latest styles lit millinery, and the stock will be ready for inspection tomorrow, but she is unable to make the usual preparations and decora tions the stores always have at this season of the year. She hoDes hei patrons and friends will excuse the omission and remember her when tljey are ready to make their fall purchases. Her stock is the most complete sjie has ever brought on. Frali w- rthy Work, The ladies have undertaken to raise funds with which to place a handsome gate at the entrance of the Cemetery. This is a move in which everyone having friends buried there should be interested. We have the prettiest Cemetery m this section, and the old farm gate now at the entrance is an eyesore that should have been remov ed long ago. - It has been arranged for the ladies to meet at the Masonic Lodge room, (in the W. C. T. U. room) next Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, when definite steps will be taken to push the plan to a successful end. It is earnestly hoped that all the ladies interested in this matter will be present, Don't forget the time, Mon day afternoon at 2:30. A BIG RAID. A D.tectlve Slips Into the Blind Tlgert Camp and Captures a Number of tlie Rare Beasts. The Blind Tigers have had smooth sailing in Lancaster for many month?, but hard troubles struck them this week. Some time ago, J. D. Steen berger, a detective, of Crab Orchard, came to town and made no effort to conceal his business here, ne went about it systematically and Friday had forty-two warrants sworn out in the Police Court against colored people residing on the "Chute." Mr. Steenberger secured the assistance of three other men to do the buying, and kept away from the tigers himself, Those brought before Judge Brown were Ellen Evans, Spencer Royston, Sam Royston, Josh Ray, LewIsAnde.- son, Ben Guinn, Cicero Humber and Cary Mullins. They all gave bond to appear yesturday, Wednesday, and the cases will be tried separately. Mr. Steenberger has been quite successful as a local detective and has done much to tantalize the tiger. This week there is being tried in the Danville courts seventy odd cases for illegal liquor selling which were worked u.j by him. The arrest created quite a stampede on the "Chute" and a fellow, who ought to know, said "things are Go to Logan & Robinson and get $2.00 hat for SL25.
