COL. WALTON'S HAND
WRITING LIKE MUSIC.
Every once in a while sombody in
Stanford receives a letter from Col. V.
P. Walton, former editor of the Interior
Journal, and now associate editor of the
Lexington Herald. The recipients of
such missives usually bring them to us
to. read, for we "set" his copy for many
a year both by hand and on a linotype,
and often we were the only man in the
office who could read it. Which re
minds us of a story he told on himself
in the Herald the other day. A tramp
printer hit Lexington and they put him
on a machine to set some ot Mr. Wal
ton's editorials. The printer looked at
' it a while, turned It up-side down and
studied it then went to the foreman and
said: "If I had a cornet I might play
this stuff, but I'm d -d if I can set it. "
At that we think Col. Walton's chiro
graphy is more legible than that of
Editor Desha Breckinridge of the Her
ald or of Enoch Grehan another leading
Lexington newspaper man, and we
have "set" them all In days gone by.

were held steady by Harr,who relieved
The Hardlnsburgcrs were now great
