Sad to relate however, they found the Cumberland river mud dy and their entire time was spent on the Rockcastle.

They report a total of about 76 fish (not pounds) caught during the weak. 96 ADDITIONS Daring Christian Church Remal.

The mere mention of the name "Cohurn" send thrill of joy through ones body, and the fact that he is to bring his greater minstrel to the Lan caster Opera House next Saturday night, is indeed a joy that knows no bounds. Thoye who have seen this wonderful minstrel could not conceive that it could be improved upon, but we are assured that this years shows have reached the height of minstreldom.

GOOD DEMAND For Kentucky Red Berkshire. The demand that has been created for the Kentucky Red Uerkshires in the past few weeks has surpassed all records and the breeders of this class are making daily shipments to various tates to fill their increased oiders. W. O. Walker, of Stanford sold two boar pigs to James Sharpe of Georgia, for which he received fiO and a pair to R. H. Sharp, of Texas, for $20. Robert T. Hruce sold a number to Woodford county people ot fancy prices, they go ing to a territory where the Duroc has had full sway for a number of years. James Iiurnside of this county sold five nice shoats to Ernest Hoover, of Jes samine, for which he received $100. All breeders of this class report unpre cedented sales and think the reputation that this breed has already established will make them the coming hog in the state. DEMOCRATIC RALLY A BIG SUCCESS.
