Folk Lore. . We have been accused of being su peistitious because we professed a belief in the predictions of the ground hog, and circumstances have fully jus tified our belief, and the sagacious animal has been proven of better char acter "for truth and veracity" than some people we know. Stimulated by this justification in our faith we are constrained to call th attention of our readers to the fact that tomorrow, Friday, again falls upon the 13th day of the month. Now traditions handed down to us warns us to be exceedingly caution upon this particular day, to be exceedingly careful of our undertakings. Of course we do not expect every one to believe as strongly in such matters as we do, or to go to the limit of car rying the left hind leg of a grave yard rabbit in their posket, but we do ad vise them to exercise a reasonable amount of caution. February 13th fell upon Friday, and everyone knows what miserable weather conditions accompa nied it, and that many people suffered accidents from falls on the slippery streets and sidewalks, and now coming in the next month following, we advise extra caution. The same thing occurs in November, three times during the year, very unusual, and we shall offer a sigh of relief when we have safely passed all of the "Friday, the 13ths" sn the year. Governor Signs Insurance Measure. Almost immediately after it was sub mitted to him, la3t Saturday afternoon, Gov. McCreary signed the famous Glenn-Green Insurance bill. This ac tion was taken within an hour after it had been signed by ihe officers of the two houses. Immediately following this action four of the leading insurance companies notified the Insurance Com- days and the new structure will ( missioner that they would suspend bus- adjoin- iness in this state, they did not signify their intention of withdrawing from the state, or make any kind of threats, but simply signified their intention of siisnendinf.

Mrs. Jones was a sister of the late John M. McRoberts and an aunt of R. E, McRoberts and Mrs. Joe Mount. She was a member of the Presbyterian church and her death marks the passing away of all the members of the old McRoberts family. She was a womon noted for her devotion to her family and her charity to all. Infant Daughter Of Mr. and Mrs. Z. T. Rice Dead. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. and'Mrs. Z; T. Rice of Richmond be cause pf the death of their eightmonths old daughter whichccured in that city on Sunday. Mrs. Rice was formerly Miss Amy Davidson of this county. Mayor L. G. Davidson went to Rich mond Monday and accompanied the what effect the passing of the measure will have upon the insuring public, re mains to be seen. One of the most important facts for me general puDiic 10 understand in connection with this bill, it that it can in no way affect insurance policies. The provisions of the bill, to every owner pf insurable property. The bill in brief, extends the poweis of the State Rating Board to supervise the aplication of the schedules of fire insurance rates fixed by the board, and which schedules are now being applied by the companies according to rates made by their own acturial bureau, to which" all the companies sub'scribe. The bill levies -a tax. of one per cent on all premiums for the support of the board and to defray the expense of the broadened powers of supervision. This tax will bring into the board approxi mately $42,000.

' " " J'' "Lid On" In Lexington Last Sunday. Lexington had a tight Sunday, prob ably the first one for a long time. Saloons, grocery stores and barbershops were apparently closed tight. The new state of affairs accasioned very little inconvenience, as such action had been anticipated and the public had provided itself with the where with to prepare a Sunday dinner before hand, as had many others who desired to quench their thirst with something stronger than water during the Sabbath.

Irvine has purchased the three- story brick residence, formerly owned and occupied by the late Dr. John G. Cecil, at the corner of St. James Court and Magnolia avenue, the consideration being in excess of 20,000. The house is one of the handsomest in the southern residence section. It is situated on a lot seventy-seven feet wide. The trnnsfer was made through J. Lithgow Smith, of the Fidelity & Columbia Trust Company. Courier Journal. Mr. Irvine is well known, in and was a former resident of Lancaster, the oldest son of the late Prof. J. L. Irvine, who taught school here for many years. O. H. Irvine married Miss Susie Harris, a niece of Judge E. W. Harris of this place. Mr. Irvine is the proprietor of the Old Kentucky Distillery in Louisville. Sure Lancaster Wants To Get In. There is a movement on foot in Dan ville to organize a league of ball teams among the towns in this part of the state, and Lancaster is mentioned as one ofthe towns likely to wanta place. We are sure that we voice the senti ment of innumerable fans in this com munity when we say "we sure do" want to enter, and we hope that some of our boys who have not passed the playing age, will take the matter up ane make arrangements for a goad team in Lancaster curing the coming season. If there is anything in the world that will make Lancaster people loosen up their purse strings it is a winning "home team", they will go the limit, both as to physical and financial support. Why last year in lieu of any thing else in the way of a ball game, the Lancaster fansave their unquali fied support and patronage to the local colored team, and by the way, it was a good one. Are We To Have A Fair This Year. Our readers can best answer the above question. It would be the easiest matter possible to organize a Fair As sociation in Garrard county. All that is needed is someone to take the initia tive. Those who have done this here tofore find their time so taken up by other matters that they have no time to devote to this especial business. In the meantime, the time is waning, other towns around us are claiming dates and making preparations to give an exhibition, why not Lancaster? In days not long past we bore the reputa tion for giving one of the best exhibi tions in the state. That reputation is not gone beyond recall, it would be an easy matter to reestablish it. Let some good man take the matter up, and he will find it an easy matter to enlist the assistance of ample means and men to push the enterprise to a successful finish. Who will try it? Soon To Be A Serious Proposition. Farmers are already in many instances compelled to haul materiel a long dis tance to burn tobacco beds, nor is the hauling the most serious pait of the job, securing the material is where the rub comes in. So scarce is wood be coming in this country, that in order to secure material for this work, farmers in many instances are compelled to clear thickets, oft times for their neighbors. Every year this problem grows moro and more serious, the material harder to obtain, the distance to go for it grows longer, and unless in the near future the science of this pro gressive age furnishes some solution for the problem, the burning of tobacco beds will have become a thing of the past. And this is more serious than the mere statement would imply; there are many farmers who would discon tinue the growing. of tobacco altogether unless' their seed beds were properly burned; nor do -we know but they would be justified in such a step. We have never heard of a seed bed being sown without having been previously burned, but without expert ' advice on the subject, are inclined to the theory that it would be a failure; and the Surely the path of a City Councilmen is not strewn with roses, just ask one of them. Hudson & Hughes, have the most complete stock of Highest Grade Seed Oats, Clover and Timothy seed, that can be found in the state. They do not carry but one grade and that is the best money can buy. A New Citizen. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Brown are re joicing over the arrival of a ten pound boy. The youngster Jbeing christened Robert Elliott. W. C. T. U. Remembers Mrs. Burnett. The local Chapter of the W. C. T. U. presented Mrs. Burnett with an elegant souvenir spoon as a token of their re memberance and appreciation of her long, faithful and pleasant connection with that body. Mrs. Burnett will make her future home in Shelbyville, and with her departure the W. C. T. U. will lose one of their most enthusiastic and useful members. Notice To Trustees. All of the trustees in the county are requested to meet in the Police Court Room at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning, March 17th, to hear Miss Lida B. Gard ner, superintendent of schools of Nicholas county, on subject of Kentuc ky Educational Association. Blanks for taking census will be distributed. All teachers, and those who are inter ested on the subject are invited to attend. MBgJlBfHjiijycWfflrrHJirrti.

Drawn hither by the big Paint Lick damage suit against the L & N rail road, pretty much every business man in Paint Lick has been in Lancaster this week, and with out an exception every one of them paid their respects to the Record office. They are a rep resentative body of men, business men of the most progressive stamp, capable of rising above adverse circumstances and pushing their various callings to the front rank in the face of what seemed almost complete ruin, as was demonstrated by them after the tre mendous damage done at the time of the disastrous flood in their thriving little city; courteous gentlemen, one and all, we welcome to our city, and hope that they may come oftener and stay longer.

Children Under 12 Years Not To Be mitted To Reform School. The State Prison Commission has made a ruling that children 12 years of , age and under sent to that institution will be returned to the county from which they were received. The children ranging in ages from 9 to 12 years of age, some twenty five in num ber, now in the institution, will be re turned as rapidly as possible to the county from which they were received. The Commission takes the view that the Reform School is no place for children of such tender years. County Judges, and courts before whom such cases are tried are requested to give heed to this ruling. Three Garrard County Convicts To Be Freed.
