SUBSCRIPTION ONK YKAR S1.00 dcfvcrHvHjr rates made known on application ANNOUNCEMENTS We 'atf nutlinripil to announce Chesley Payne, ai a cnniliilnte ftirMujfistrate in the Seeonci district, subject to the action of Hie . licau jiartv. M A s s A c 11 u s KTT8 today has three Democratic Congressmen, when if the State was rightly di vided there would be four, yet the present Legislature has a bill be fore it to Gerrymander the State so there will be only one Dem ocratic district in the State. What a howl goes up from those same people when a little Gerrymander ing is done in the South, eveu helping to contest the seats of a Democrat elected from such a dis trict. It is another case of whose ox is gored. We remember that it lias 011K been a shot time since a defeated candidate in this Congres sional district contested the seat of Mr. Gilbert, because Jackson county was taken from the district and placed in the eleventh. At any rate that was the grounds, the cause being a snug little sum of money, which the government unwisely gives such fellows. The amount paid is entirely to much, and should be chauped. It is an' inducement to men who have spent all they had, and then got a Waterloo, to contest when they know there jsno hopes of gaining the money. Judgk Jamhs D. 'Black in' an interview in Louisville, would not say whether he would accept the place of Circuit Judge to succeed Judge Tinsley. We can't tell about that, but if you want to know who will be the next Govern or ot Kentucky, we refer you to the Hon. J. D. Black, of Barbourvillc The mountain people undoubtedly expect, and deserve the ofhee of governor next term, and Mr. Black is the one man to whom all eyes are turned. How can we expect anything but that the mountains will gc Republican as long as the Democrats of that part are uot better represented. It is true the mountain counties have been growing iii the Republican faith, and well inay we have expected them to do so under the circumstances. But we don't think there will be any opposition to Mr. Blacks nomination in fact, we don't see how there could be any one object when we remember the past. Tins Danville News is most certainly correct when it said that the local editor of the Advocate had been ''fed on dope," when he said that editor W. P. Walton would take charge of and become editor oftheMt. Vernon Signal. If the local editor hud taken the stcond thought he might have known the report was a bogus oue. While it is true W. P. Walton could run this paper for better than the present editor is running it, but we desire to say, that neither the press not the good will of the editor is for sale, aud that whoever runs the Sigual will live in Mt. Vernon. We are very well pleased with our present prospect, as we have already succeeded beyond our expectation. Mk. R. O. Cunningham announces his retirement from the Danville News, that splendid paper, which he started aud put on a sure'fouudation, IfCapt. Lillard, the new editor, proves himself as good in journalism as he has in everything else, he has ever undertaken, the News will even be better thau brfore, aud here is wishing Capt. Lillard unbounded success iu his new field of labor. Hon. J as B. McCrkaky, it. an interview at Washington, says he is pleated with his chances for U. S. .Senator, and so aie wc.' When h Micceeds, Deboe, Kentucky will then no longer hide her head in shame. " GENERAL NEWS. o The German 'Reichstag was k prorogued until November. Four lives were lost by the burning of the steamer City of at Callionn. Many lives were lost in the Italian village of Accreiiza by the fall of an immttihC rock. Charles Emory Smith denies that he contemplates resigning the office of Postmaster General. Nine miners were killed aud thrde fatally injured by an explosion at Farnmigton W. Va. Corn King Phillips boosted the price to sixty cents, reaping $75,-000 on his sales for the day. It is now stated that only five lives were lost by the sinking ol the steamer City of Paducah. Robbers blew open the vault of the Hart County Bank at Munford-ville and secured $3,000 or more. Owing to the serious' illness of Mrs. McKinley, the President has abandoned the Northwestern trip. Miss Mamie Daugherty, of Bardstown, was appointed matron of the Hopkinsville Insane Asylum. The Rio Grande Western railroad passed under the control of the Denver and Rio Grade Wednesday. The Alaskan, the largest merchant vessel ever built on the Pacific coast, was launched at San Francisco. The Grand Encampment of Kentucky Odd Fellows is in session. Reports show the order to be in a prosperous condition. At Everett. Wash., a boy committed suicide because he had been reprimanded by his father. His father then killed himself. News was received of the death of Mr&. Lottie Witherspoon Bell, of Louisvillle, in Korea, where she was- eugaged with her husband in missionary work. The horribly mutilated and decomposed boJy of Henry Bayne, who disappeared five weeks ago, was found .m the woods .near his home in Nelson county. A large force of militia is on hand at Albany to prevent further rioting. An unsuccessful attempt at a settlement of the street railway strike trouble was made.

Circuit Judge John W. Green, of Owen county, died Saturday night of paralysis. Mr. John M. Lassing, of Boone county, will probably be appointed by Gov. Beckham to fill out the term. United States District Attorney Tiusley has recommend Hon. George M. Davison, of Stanford, for the position of Assistant District Attorney of the Eastern Kentucky Judicial District recently created. M r. Davison was formerly Congressman from this district and is well qualified to discharge the duties of the office. BRODHEAD Little Goebel Pike is very sick, this week. Mr. R. S Martin is in Junction jCity this week. Mrs. Mary Collyer, who has been very poorly for some two weeks, is some better at this writing. Mr. aud Mrs J. Thomas Cherry, of our town, left Tuesday for a few days iu the city of Louisville. Bro. Pike filled his appointment at Buckeye last Saturday and Sunday, returning home Monday. Mr. George Barnes and wife left Wednesday for a weeks visit to frieiids and relatives in Casey county. 'Mr. George Brooks is on the sick list, but we think'that George would get better if he could see a friend lie.has at Livingston, Our picture man,' Mr. Stephen ;mi i till fininrr nlnnt'i' ' r( ' and now is the time for our pciople to have their self talrcn. v"' Robert Collyer, of Crab Orchard, was here this week loading telephone poles. He has contracted eight car loads at this place, of F; Francisco aud R. E. Pike. Mr. Perander Hiatt was in town Wednesday. Aunt Rett let him come down this week by himself. Per. is a nughtv good man, and it looks like he ought to live forever. Miss Ella Dunn, one of Brod-head's most accomplished belles, went away Thursday, to visit old friends in Lincoln, Garrard aud Boyle counties. She will be gone some 10 or 15 days. Mr. James Hays, of near Crab Orchard, was in Brodhead Wednesday, he was weighing up hogs for the boys. He bought about 50 head here from Anc Boreing, JohnjCraig, Henry Sutton and James Purcell. Hogs are bringing 'about a nickle a pound. Messrs. Joshua Boreing aud Ora Frith, two of our young men who are going to school nt Lexington, returned home last Friday, to visit homefolks. They returned to Lexington Sunday. Mr. Boreing is studying short-hand, and Mr. Ora is studying book-keeping. The boys are looking well. J. G. Frith is getting so fat he can hardly walk. It looks like he would be lazy, but of course, he is not. If you could be in the store some day and see a young lady come in, and see him throw his hat down on the counter, and watch him move around a little, you would think him to only be about 20 years old. Mr. F. Francisco has just finished planting a 20 acre field ol corn. He had Mr. Gibbs to plaut it with a two-horse planter, and it did the work so nice that he had to send a man out in the field several times, to see if the driver was a-sleep. Now understand, that I do not vouch for the truthfulness of this statement. I only have Fullen's word for it. Miss Helen Thurmond, our teach er, is off on a' vacation for a lew weeks. She is visiting relatives and friends in Stanfotd this week. Miss Helen will be one of our public school teachers at Brodhead this next fallx Mi. Joshua Boreing will be the principal in the school, so we anticipate having a good school, as both our teachers, have the reputation of being first-class instructors. Miss Thurmond has been with us three years, and she wears well with our people. Miss Berda Martin, of Marets-burg, is in Brodhead this week, and we asked her who she was visiting, and in reply, she said she could not stay away from Brodhead'. But Miss Sallie Purcell said she was visiting her, so Miss Berda's statement only proves what everybody knows to be true; that Brodhead is the best place in the world. 1 couia prove tins statement by a young lady that lives at Jellico, and by young men and ladies all along the line of course Mt. Vernon is excepted. Our old friend and brother, G. L. McRoberts, who has been visiting relatives in Garrard and Lincoln counties, returned home Tuesday, The old gentleman is looking well and if you could see him and his Mr. Joshua Dunn sitting together, you would hardly think that Mr. McRoberts was Mr. Dunn's father-in-law. But F. Francisco accounts for this by saying, tliat Mr. McRoberts is a widower, aud that Bro. Dunn has the youngest looking wife j ou ever saw, for a man of his age. Mr. W. R. Dilliou, of Livingston, was with 'is Wednesday. The writer and Mr. pillion were great friends 23 or 30 years ago, and hove had some good times together We used to rasel like two boys. Bill is looking well looks to be about 40 years old, but is 58. We si.w his father last Monday, who lives in Lancaster, the old Captain is looking well apd seems like a boy, but he said his legs did not like to carry Ins body, just like they did seme 60 or- 75 years ago, but such is life, twice a child and once a man. The good old man is now the iecoud clrihi. a,"d can not walk so well ?.s when a man: GOOD ROAD ARTICLE TAKEN FROM THE U. S. DEPARTMENT OF URE. Bad roads constitute the greatest drawback to rural life, and for tlie lack of good roads the farmers suffer more than any oilier class. It is obviously unnecessiry, therefore, to discuss here the benefits to be derived by them from improved roads. Suffice it to say, that those localities where good roads have been built are becoming richer, more prosperous, aud more thickly settled, While those which do r.ot possess these advantages in transportation are either a standstill or are becoming poorer and more sparsely settled. If these conditions :ontinue, fruitful farms may be abandoned and rich, lands go to waste. Lifeon a farm often becomes, as a result of "bottomless roads," isolated and barren social enjoyments and pleasures, and country people in some communities suffer such great disadvantage that ambition is checked, qnergy weakened, and industry paralyzed. Good roads, like good streets, make habitation along them most desirable: they economize' time and force iu transportation oPdroduc's, reduce, wear and tear on horses, harness, and vehicles, and enhance the market value of real estate. They raise the value of farm lauds and farm products and tend to beautify the country through which, they pass; they facilitate rural mail delivery and are a potent aid to education, religion, and sociability Charles Summer once said, "The road aud the schoDlmaster are tlfe two most important agents iu advancing civilization." The difierence between good aud bad; roads is often equivalent to the difference between profit and loss. Good roads have a money value to farmers as well as a political and social value, and leaving out convenience, comfort, social and refined influences which good roads always enhance, and looking at them only from the "almighty dollar" side, they are found to pay handsome dividends each year. People generally are beginning to realize that road building is a public matter; and that the best interests of American agriculture aud the American people as a whole demand the construction of good roads, and that money wisely expended for this purpose is sure to return.
