8. A. PATE
Former Breckenridge County
, Man, Becomes Manager of
Large Estate Ewing's Farm
in the South.
Mr. S. A. Pate, who has for the past
four years been the efficient steward
of the Western Kentucky Hospital, has
accepted the position of manager of
the Felix Q. Ewing estate at Cedar
Hill, Term.
Mr. Pate has made an excellent rec
ord as steward of the asylum, and has
thoroughly demonstrated his ability to
handle the large farm belonging to the
stale and has during bis term here,
been superintendent of much of the
construction work at the institution.
He was also the custodian of all the
physical property of the institute, and
in all this has shown his great fitness
for this particular work. Recently Mr.
Ewing was attracted to him, and upon
personal investigation here, made a
proposition to Mr. Pate to become
manager of his estate, which consists
of 2,700 acres of land, with all modern
buildings and improvements and pow
er plants, lighting plant and machinery
of every kind. There is also a large
mill on the place.
Although this is already one of the
finest places in the south yet Mr. Ew
ing contemplates other extensive 1m
provements, all of which will be made
by Mr. Pate.
This is a very responsible posLion,
and it is most gratifying to the many
friends whom Mr. Pate has made dur
ing his stay in this city and all rejoice
in his good fortune, and at the same
time would congratulate Mr. Ewing
upon securing the service of one so
thoroughly competent to handle his
bier estate.
ATtnougKEh'e'state board of controf
has offered to Mr. Pate a fine position
at one of the other institutions of the
state, yet the offer of Mr. Ewing was
so flattering that ho has today formal
ly accepted same and will leave with
his family December 1st for their new
The New Era joins Mr. Pate's many
friends In wishing for him and his fam
ily all success and happiness in their
new home, and regrets exceedingly
that his new work not only calls him
from our city, but from the state as
well. New Era, Hopkinsville.
For Irvington Everybody Was
Wearing A Chrysanthemum
And Celebrating The Opening
Of The Irvington Hardware
And Implement Company.
The Irvington Hardware and Imple
ment Company, of Irvington, gave an
elegant dinner at their opening Satur
day. An attractive menu of baked
chicken, broiled steak, french fried po
tatoes, light rolls, celery, coffee, cheese
and crackers was beautifully served.
Large paper chrysanthemums, gorgeous
In design, and brilliant in colors, were
given each guest and the many friends
who called in the afternoon to pay their
compliments and extend good wishes to
Messrs Davis Ashcraft and Jesse Hern
don. The dinner guests were as fol
lows: Mrs. Jake Kendall, Mrs. J. G.
Anderson, Miss Maggie Cowley, J. 11.
Herndon, Earl Bennett, Louis Jolly,
Jno. D. Babbage, Rev. W. II. F, Jones,
Ernest Reese, Lee Slith and Lou Cow
ley, The charm of the entertainment was
the exhibition of the "Jewel" cook
stove by Mr. E. E. Howard. The din
ner was cooked on this stove by a Chef
and the cooking was like magic. Even
those who detest the sight of a kitchen
had their eyes opened to the pleasure
and satisfaction that can be gotten out
of the work by a "Jewel" stove,
The demonstration of the Jewel
ranges was a delight to Irvington and
the town had its enthusiasm pitched
high over the opening of this popular
firm. Everybody went home Saturday
wishing Santa Claue would bring them
a, "Jewel" range or some of the other
ygrand" things they saw at Irvington
Hardware store.
Was a Beloved Knight Didd of
Pneumonia in Pocahontas,
Ark.-Buried at Hardinsburg
Funeral Held by Rev. Dyer.
Men are born, murry and die; the
good they do is too soon forgotten, and
the wrongs, often, too long remem
bered. We should profit by the lives
of others. Too often, penniless, weep
ing widows and poorlv educated and
sorrowing children witness the inter
ment of a fond father and husband, but
one who has failed to provide for their
future. Those men who keep in mind
these facts and suddenly die, as did P.
N. LeSieur, leaving those lett behind
provided for, are the heroes of private
life and the real benefactors of man
kind. Brother LeSieur became suddenly ill
and dted of pneumonia in Pocahontas,
Arkansas, on December'2. just a few
minutes after his faithful and loving
companion arrived at his bedside from
here. Arriving as she thought among
strangers, she found her husba&d suj
rounded by nurses ana friends who had
provided for him every comfort that
tender care could afford a stricken man
He was a Knight of Pythias. After
death, these sympathizing brothers ac
companied the bereaved sister all the
way to St. Louis, 'here seeing her and
the body.safely on the train for the re
mainder of the sad journey. Of course,
when they arrived at home, the body
was laid to rest by friendly hands, and
the burial was witnessed by grieved
neighbors and the loved ones, paying
tribute to the virtues of the departed.
Death found him as he had lived, a
devoted .husband, generous neighbor,
jraan of honor and integrity; an unas
suming Christian gentleman, prepared
five thousand dollars in insur-
He lived right and did well his
duty. He had o,deep feeling of uni
versal brotherhood, and that tender
care and fraternal affection that was
bestowed on him by our brothers was
well deserved, and is but another trib
ute to our fraternalism. Long live the
oider, and may his example be emu
lated. Henry Dellaven Mcorman.
Declared a Bankrupt.
Mr. J. Allen Dean, referee in bank
ruptcy, was in the city yesterday and
held a meeting of the creditors of Hen
ry J May who some weeks ago filed
his petition for a discharge in bank
ruptcy. The meeting was held at the
law office of V. G. Babbage, who rep
resented Mr. May in the proceedings,
and it was shown that there were no
assets to pay unsecured claims.

colors are gray, black, and chestnut.
Of these colors, there are all shades.
The grooming enhances their beauty.
