A Criminal Court.
Tho docket of Circuit Court is now
so far behind that there is no hopo of

solve tho dilllculty in an economical
way. 1 lie only olilco to ue cre

inals could bo promptly tried and
punished beforo tho witnesses died
or moved away, as it is often the case
now. Our Representative is heartily
in favor of tho new court. Let us
have it by all means.

To the South Kentuckian :
Thinking probably a few items
from this place might be of some in
terest to your valuable paper, I pen
the most interesting occurrences that
have taken place in the past week and
send them In. There is a great deal
of Blckucss at tho present time
throughout this neighborhood. To
bacco hanging, corn cutting and
wheat sowing are the order of the
day among the farmers. We noticed
last Saturday, while en routt for the
beautiful little town of Croft on large
fields of corn and tobacco which
proved to our eye a big surprise. We
noticed several largo fields of tobacco
as fine as we ever saw grow. On 1st
of Oct. this station will be changed
to Mannington, tho new name of the

Miss Annie Garnett, of Norlonville,
commenced school last Wednesday
week at isauey s sciiool nouso. .Mis
Annie lias the reputation of being a
number one teacher, and we predict
she will givo satisfaction to pupils
and patrons.
Mr. Pratt Williams of Madisonville
was shot and almost instantly killed
at this placo last Tuesday night about
10 o'clock by a young boy of about IS
years of age whose name was Booth
Dunning. From what we can learn
it all originated from that dreadful
disastrous stuff "red eye." Mr. Wil
liams wasquitea wealthy young man
and had many warm friends around
tliis place who were shocked to bear
of the sad fate that befell him. His
remains were interred at the old
family graveyard ai Old Petersburg
last Wednesday. Young Dunning
had his trial before Esq's Long,
Brown and Johnson. Hon. R. Wil
liam Henry was the defender and
Hon. John Poland the prosecutor,
both of Hopkinsville. As this is my
first I'll close for this time, hoping to
see these few items miss the waste
basket. If tlicy lo, I will come again.
