St. Romuald's Commencement.
Hardinsburg, June 22. (Special)
The Commencement exercises of St.
Romuald's school took place last Mon
day night. A large and appreciative
audience assembled in the church to
witness the closing exercises.
The program was an Interesting and
varied one, and well rendered, showing
the every evidence of careful training
on the part of the Sisters, and a hearty
response to their efforts on the part of
the pupils. A drama, of no little merit,
"Crown of Glory," was effectively en
acted by the girls, and was enjoyed by
all. The music and singing were espec
ially beautiful. '
While the final exercises are always
meritorious, it Is the opinion of many
who had the pleasure of witnessing the
splendidly rendered program, that none
has enlisted the praise and satisfaction
to the spectators as did this one at the
close of the present term. Kathleen

tends to the good of agriculture appeals
to. me and will nlways have my constant
care and earnest consideration.

in his own interests or pursuits, as ninety-five
per cent of my patrons are farm

you. Thanking you for your earnest
support proffered. I beg to remain '
Yours very truly,

REFUSES TO BURDEN
L
Not Forced To Stop At Every
County Seat If .Local Trains
Sufficient.
Frankfort, Ky., Juuc 12. The Court
of Appeals, in an opinion handed down
by Chief Justlcj Hobsou, reversed the
decision of the Lyon County Circuit
Court, in which a fine of $200 was en
tered against the Illinois Central for
failing to stop a fast passenger train at
Eddyvllle.
A passenger, who wa3 carried to
Kuttawa, went boforo the grand jury
under the statute cortipellingall rail
roads to stop trains at every county
seat and at any point where a peni
tentiary Is or will be located. An In
dictment was returned.
Justice Hobson, in his opinion, holds
that whono the service is sufficient
with local trains the ruilroads are
within their rights In refusing to stop
fast passenger trains at nil county
seats, especially where it Is shown,
as in the case at issue, that a local
train was to follow the fast train in
less than one hour.

Weil-Known Younq Woman
Passes Away After Long Illness-
-Wife Of Mr. Raymond
W. Meador.
Hardinsburg, June 20. (Special) On
Juue 17, I9I3, near the hour of ten
o'clock p. m., Mrs. Kate Simmons
Meador, wife of Raymond W. Meador,
passed from life into death. She was
confined to her bed many weeks and
was a great sufferer, bearing It all
with cheerfulness aad a Christian for
titude. She realized that she could not
get well, and was prepared for her dis
solution. Near the age of fifteen years,
during a revival held in Garfield Pres
byterian church while Rev. Green Cun-
diff was pastor, she was converted and
joined the Presbyterian cliurch. One
year ago she realized she had not lived
up to her conversion, and during a
meeting held in Custer, she renewed
her faith in Christ and so lived until
her death.
In I9OS, Nov. 3rd, she became the
wife of Raymond W Meador and catre
to Custer, the home town of her hus
band, to live, which was her home ex
cept for a few months spent In Lake
Arthur, New Mexico. She and her hus
band thinking they could do better In
Kentucky than New Mexico, returned
to Custer, Ky., and made It their per
manent residence; here in her home
town, to which she had first come as a
stranger, she endeared herself in the
hearts of both old and young.
Rev. R. I. Penick conducted the fun
eral service assisted by Rev. Minor
Compton. The text was taken from
the twenty-seventh verse of the ninth
chapter of Hebrews. "It is appointed
unto men once to die, but after that the
Judgment." Her remains were inter
red in the Garfield burying ground. A
large crowd attended, being composed
of relatives, friends and school mates.
She leaves one own brother, Elisha
Simmons, Indianapolis, Ind ; and three
half brothers, Tab. Simmons, Webster,
