It has never been the duty of Cam
illa to chronicle a sadder event than
was tho death of John Auglon, which
occurred at the residence of his sister
Mrs. J. W. Urilhjl of Lafayette,' on
tho morning of Wo 7th inat, iu the
21st year of his age. Death, when it
comes even to those who are old and
Infirm, to those who have lived out
tho full measure of three score years
and ten, Is fraught with genuine hor
rors ; but fur mora terrible Is the
grim mounter when it cuts dowu a
young man in the prido of develop
ing manhood and who is just enter
ing on a life, around which shine the
golden beams of many bright hopes.
Three weeks ago John was happy in
the enjoyment of health and strength,
life to hlin seemed rcpleto with Joy
ful anticipations of a pleasant future ;
now ho sleeps in tho silciieo of tho
dark, coldrruvo, having fallen a
victim to thut ruthless disease, ty
phoid fever. John, though not a
member of any eh ffcch, was a high
toned, honorable and generous young
gcnllciirtft. Wherever ho went bo
invariably gained friends, and none
know him but toJIko him. lie was
raised in this community and be
.us on aged father, two sisters and
oa brothers, bo leaves a number of
othor relatives aud many frionds to
mourn his early death.

bagged by Bob. Jordan. Tho noxt
day they killed two more; both of
theso wero brought down by Jim
Drake on the same atnnd, one with
each barrel. Theso were all they
killed and tho remainder of tho time
was spent In hunting squirrels and
birds, and of theso they killed large

A CHANCE POS WATER-WOEES.

At a meeting of tho BoardDf couu-
cllinon of tho city of HopkinsvlUc,
Ky.,hcld Nov. 8, 1883, F.M. Loworoo
and associates presented to . tho
Board a written proposition to erect,
build and maintain water-works in
the cOt' of Hopkinsvllle, which 1
ordered to bo filed.
Said proposition, amongst other
things," proposes that tho city shall
glvo said Loworeo and associates the
exclusive right to build and maintain
wutor-works and to erect not loss
than sixty hydrants for tho uso of
the city in case of fire, sprinkling
stroets, flushing of gutters and sup
plying tho publio buildings, for
which tlio city shall pay $3,0U0 por
yoar and $50 per year for otteh by
dritnt tho city may order over GO.

sinners at a rate not exceeding flvo
cents per hundred gallons, or equal
In prleo to any near by private com
pany or city, with the right to the
city to purchaso tho works at valua
tion alter the oxpiraliou of as many
years as may ho-cafter be agreed
upon by contractors.'
And on motion of Councilman E.
1. Campbell tho voto was taken upon
tho question whether or not tho city
is nblo and if it is to the best interests
of the city to accept any proposition
for the establishment of water-works
and on said proposition all the
Coiincilmcn voted aye.
Tho said written proposition was
then taken up and considered and re
ceived the favorable consideration of
the Council us a basis for a contract,
subject to such changes and modula
tions as tho Council may think
necessary and proper iu caso a con
tract is made and as may bo agreed
upon by the Council and said Lowo
rec and associates.-
But it Is the sense and opinion of
the Council that the amount of lia
bility to bo incurred by tho city iu
accepting a proposition for water
works is too great for the Council to
incur without an expression from
the voters and tax payers of the city.
Therefore it Is
Resolved and ordained that at the
regular annual election of Council
men to bo held on tho second Sat
urday in December, 18S.1, a poll be
ppened by the ofllecrs of said election
with a column for and against water
works and each person who may
voto on said question to bo recorded
for or against, as bo may vote. But
no person to voto on said proposition
except ihobo legally entitled to vote
at said election for Cily Councilinen.
attest, H. II. LITTF.LL,
A Warehousemen on the
En, South Kentuckias :
Your "plain statement of the facts"
in your last Issue lu regard to the
Grangers and warehousemen of Hop
kinsvllle, places tho Tobacco Board of
trade lu rather a false attitudc.which
was doubtless unintentional, and we
therefore submit the following as it
stands on record. Iu the winter of
1869 and 70, tho origin of our tobacco
market, our charges wero copied
from tho Clarksvillo market, viz:
13.50 per hognhoud and commis
sion and f I buyer's charges. After a
number of years a change was made
to $2.50 por hogshead and 1 com
mission uud $2 buyer's charges. Af
ter a fair trial this was found to op
erate aguiust the best Interests of the
market, as itjwaa ugrecd by tho buy
ers that they could buy on neighbor
ing markets 1003 hogsheads for$100J,
whereas ou tho Hopkiiisvillo market
it cost them $2000 to buy tho same
number of hogsheads. Iu order to
remedy this dilllculty tho warehouse
men worn compelled to reduce the
buyer's charges to f I per hogshead,
and after doing so considering that
they had reduced charges to rock
bottom prices, they asked tho Board
of Trade to endorse their action and
protect tlicm from reckless adventur
ers by resolving only to buy-at regu
lar houses, selling at un iform rates,
thereby giving stability to the mar
ket and conlldciice to tho trade.. In
order to conciliate, and accommodate
all parties the warehousemen further
rood to allow a rebate to two coun
ty Granges, which was done for sev
eral years aud which resulted un-
profltably to tho warehouses which
sold tho tobacco, aud consequently
they held a meeting this fall and re
solved to sell at the established pri
ces for all parties giving rebates to
uono. - The Board of Trade was then
assembled and asked to afllnn their
action somo years ago, which they
did almost unanimously, discoura
ging catch-penny establishments
which shoot up for tho moment to
disturb aud damago regular trade
aim tuts is all thoy did. Tho ware
housemen of Hopkiiisvillo feel that
they have done nothing to incur the
displeasure of a largo body of our
best planters, among whom aro num
bors of their most intimate aud bost
friouds, and would bo glad to sell
their tobacco at prices that would pay
the expense and labor of handling,
aud thoy expect to maintain their
home market by fair, open, honest
dealing against the sleight of hand
craftiness of distant markets. Tho
Board of Trade regulations of Louis
villo, Clarksvillo and Hopkiiisvillo
aro substantially tho same. II
