F. Pare IK. i DiSTiMuriSH ed Visitor. Senator William Goebel, of Covington, came Wednesday afternoon of last week and spent the time in town until next morning in the interest of his Gubernatorial candidacy. He was introduced around privately to most ol the people here. Senator Goebel personally is as smooth as a pol ished gem, the mirror of courtesy. perfect in equipoise, but not a man to arouse enthusiasm by mere per sonal contact ; that is, he lacks to a great extent what is known as per sonal magnetism. His power is intellectual and displays itself best in organising and directing the elements of legislatures and big conventions. Laborers Wanted.

Mr. Boyd, while living ia tbia town a year or go, bad a stroke of paralysis that disabled him entirely and he never recovered from it. In his helpless condition no doubt death was a blessed relief to him, sad as it was to part with bis beloved com panion, bis wife, with whom he had lived so long ia perfect domestic happiness and tranquility, although she was a frail invalid for the most of the time. Mr. and Mrs. Boyd were devoted to their only child. the late Mrs. Effle Scott, wife of Charles B. Scott, with an affection that was idolising. Anxiety for the health of Mrs. Scott very prob ably had much to do with the first serious break-down in Mr. Boyd's health. The approaching end was evident from the paralytic stroke. The funeral took Place Tuesday at 11 o'clock a. m. Elder T. S Tinsley conducted the services, after which the interment was made in the Owingsville Cemetery. William Drury Boyd was a son of Drury Birge Boyd, was born Jan. 13th, 1828, and was reared near Beynoldsville, this county There were only three other chil dren in the family, none surviving: John Jones Boyd, Mrs. Joseph Faris and Mra. Chria Faria. Wil liam D. married a daughter of Daniel B. Emmons, of the same vi cinity. Hs followed the occupation of farmer for the greater part of his life. He resided in this town at intervals for some years. He possessed a bandeoma estate, lived well, entertained handsomely, and, with bia family, enjoyed lite as much as the delicate state of Mrs. Boyd's health would permit. Mr. Boyd was an honorable, high-toned gentleman, respected and esteemed by a wide acquaintanceship and numbering bia friends by scores. The sympathy of all will go out to the gentle wife, beceaved of those nearest and dearest to her. Porter-Danikl. Married In Waco, Texas, Wednesday.

Died, on Janunry 30, 1899, at his home at Sedan, Kansas, Walter W. Hurst, aged 63 years 1 month and $ days. The deceased was born in rlem- ng County, Kentucky, December 25th, 1835. He was married to Miss Lueinda Doyle, in Bath County, Kentucky, on April fith, 1855. At the age of six years he signed the temperance pledge and was never known to have violated it. At the age of It years he united with the Christian church and remained in full membership, and a most exem plary member, faithful until bis death. For forty years be was an Elder in the church and enjoyed the utmost respect and confidence of all who came in contact with him. He served throughout the War of the Rebellion as a member of Company "A" 10th Kentucky Cav alry and made an excellent record as a brave and honorable soldier. Throughout his life since arriv ing at bis majority he was a staunch Republican; ce waa also a law- abiding citisen, honest and upright ia all bis dealings with bis fellow man, in business as well as political transactions. A friend to the poor. ha was ever ready and willing to lend a helping band to his friends and neighbors. In 1882 he moved from Bath County, Kentucky, and settled on a farm in Elk county, Kansas, where he resided with bis family until the early part of the year 1889, when he moved to Sedan, Kansas. He was the father of ten cbil dren, all of whom survive him, the youngest being 22 years of age, and all of whom, except one, are mem bers of the church. Brother Uurst bad been in poor health for six months prior to bis death, but was not considered to be dangerously ill until about 24 hours before be died. Summons were sent to the different members of his family, but only four of bis chil dren were able to reach his bedside and' be with bim when the end came. He was conscious to the last, and but a few hours before bis death a number of the Brethren gathered at his bed and held song services and prayer. His favorite songs were: "When the Roll is Calltd Up Yonder, I'll Be There," and "We Will Never Say Good Bye in Heaven.4' He spoke freely of his bright hopes, having finished his work, and of hia willingness to go. To his wife he pointed out a straight. white path in which he would soon walk, and she would follow. As the end drew near he exclaimed : "The lime is up," and folding his arms he closed his eyes for n moment, and then opened thrni with a look that plainly showed that his soul was drifting up the path; and thus he gently passed to his reward beyond. ineiuneral services were con ducted from the Christian church by Elder J. I). Mcltrian from the text: 2d Timothy. 4th, 6th and 8th verses: "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my depar ture is al hand ; I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. And henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness with the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give at the last day ; and not to me only, but to all them also that love His appearing." The deceased was buried with the impressive ceremonies of the Grand Army of the Republic, a large concourse of friends and neighbors following the remains to their resting place in the cemetery.

E. Florence, a well known teacher of this county. For example: Minuend 342423.18 Subtrahend 131212.10 Remainder 211211. 8 The rule is: "From the sum of the figures in the minuend subtract the sum of the figures in the subtrahend and the result will be the sum of figures in the remainder." Taking the above example the sum of the figures in the minuend: 8, 4, 2, 4, 2, 8, equals 18. Likewise the sum of the figures of the subtrahend equals 10. Subtracting 10 from 18 leaves 8. which is the sum of the figures in the remainder. Cynthi !sna l.g Cabin. FkomCitha. t'anipiieaK'ardnnas, Culm, Fob. Ifith, iwm. TheOwinoh VM.I.R Outlook, OwiiiKHVllle, Ky. Dear Editor: As it U naturally ex pected by my friends thut I Khali write them a letter concerning Cuba and the Culmn .-.il.'. Miul I know that there Ik no better wnv of it reaching them tlinu thr' u;-li tli col umn of your paper, providing you can sp.-ire the hiac- to publish it. On the l"tli d.iy of January tho :id Ky. Itet. Huileil out of Savannah harbor on hoard the Minniwaska transport. Wind for Matunzas, t'ulia. ror three d;iyu we were rocked in the hollow of the ocean's lap, and we soon loht our appetites for hard tack nd beef. At sunrise on the 21st of January we steamed into Matanzas hay, a regiment of hungry and weary sol diers, dropped anchor just opposite tho old fort at Matanzas, and then prepared for;iireakfast. For the first time since I have been a soldier I ate my beef and hard tack with great reiian. At b o'clock p. in. wo went ashore, pitched our dog tents around the old fort,' and lay down to sleep our tlrst night in Cuban soil Matanzas is the second largest place in Cuba. It has a population of eighty thousand. Its streets are very narrow, its buildings are of an cient structure, and it still Ihoids to its ancient styles and customs. We find It finite different from the im pression we had formed through the Spanish press of the Cuban people. There is some wealth as well as pov erty here. We hear the laugh of gaiety an I pleasure mingling with the cry of the destitute and starving for bread. Tho most of the wealth here la iu the handsof the Spaniards. I was out at the old hospital that the Spanish used just iu the edge of Ma tanzas. I found an old well about 10 feet deep filled up with human times. They never burled the Cubans when they killed them; just threw them into the well or Matanzas bay. Just hack of Matanzas is one of the most beautiful valleys I ever saw. The Cubans call It the "Valley of Death." The Spanish soldiers murdered a number of Cuban there. It U a very fertile valley. It ia filled with co ronnut, palm, banana and orange trees, making it look very different from the name it wears. In eight days after arriving at Ma tiUiz;is we were ordered to Cardenas, Cuba; that i, the 2d Itutt., contain ing four companies as follws: F, It, M and L. The distance from Matan zas toCardenas isone hundred miles, which we traveled by rail. The cars which we rode in were common freight cars. They bad port boles all around them which the Spanish used i.ring the war to hlioot from. The cfnguie was iireu w;tn wood uml run very si jv, but gave us a better chance to get a view of the country. The sears of the War were very plain to be seen all along our route. A big heap of ashes marked the place where stood fine and coKtly mansions. Suaf plantations are grown up in weeds. The whole coun try looked like a deserted plain. We arrived In Cardenas and made enmp the next day. Much to our surprise we found it to be a much nicer place than Matanzas. We have a nicer camp ground here, situated on the Cardenas bay, where we get the fresh sea breeze. It is a very healthy place here. Cardenas has a population of twenty-five thousand. Its people are farther advanced every way than they were in Matanzas. They are more intelligent and civilized than any place' I have ever been in Cuba. They have a very fine school build ing. here. They have five professors teaching the English language, and all are very anxious to learn to speak English. I tbiuk it will be quite a hile before they will be able to form a stable government for themselves. There are two classes here. The in telligent and enlightened want the Island to remain under the military control of America, and the other class want a home rule of their own. So it is very bard to tell what they will do. General Uomes. command er-in-chief of the Cuban arm-, was here the 17th of February and we passed in review before bim. There was a large crowd of Cubans here to see him. Some of the Cuban soldiers were here. Everything here is very costly. Coffee is 60c per pound, meat $1 per lb., eggs 10c apiece. Everything else is high in proportion excepting whis ky; it is 10c per quart. The young women are very pretty. They visit our camp every day. They never wear anything on their heads, and all of them smoke cigarettes. They don't do anything but attend balls. They have one every Sunday night. The old Spanish barracks here are used by the U. S. for a commissary store, where they issue out food for the poor people in the city. They get two meals a day from the Govern ment. There are about 800 of them that get rationa from our Govern ment. Well. I have written all that will be of any interest. I will close by say ing i nope l win soon ue oacK in the States. Frank Williams, Co. M, 3d Ky. Regt. Or Course Yop Have.
