Sept. -P The Eduoated Trout. During the visit ol President Arthur to Louisville in August he was presented n handsome fishing reel made expressly lor him by Mr. B. F. Meek, formerly of this city, nnd while in the Yello'v Stone Park it was used by (he President in fishing for trout, which prompted a writer in the Chicago News to get off the following; Tho morning sun In splendor shone On tho mellow park of the Yellowstone. Tho President at tho break of diiy Had paoked his duds and moved away. A brave Soshone chief came out With bis willow polo to fish for trout. It was half past fi when he cast bis linn, And he kept on fishing till half-past 0; And then ho batted bis hook anew And patiently fished until half-past 2 The meanwhile swearing a powerful sight For fishing all day with nary a blto. And he swore and fished, and fished an swore Till his Elgin watch tolled half-past 4, When a big fat trout came swimming by And winked at tho chief with bis cold, sad eye. "And do you reckon, you pagan soul. You can catch us trout with a willow pole? The President taught us manners while He fifhed for us In the latest style. You've n Ida how proud we feel To be jerked ashore with a Frankfort reel." The red man gathered his dinner pall And started home by the shortest trail, And told his faithful squaw be gness'd They'd bettor move still fathr IFest. Whero Presidents didn't como fooling about, Turning the beads of the giddy trout. Bloomington. Mr. D. Glnnton has refused an offer of $1 P'r bushel lor his crop of winter apples now tell us whnt pays tietter in this country than an orchard like Mr. Glanton's. Leave, Olil leave me not alone, seems to be a favorite song with one young gentle- man of our acquaintance, since a certain young lady of this neighborhood left for school in Owen county. Not to know the location of our beautiful Bloomington, argues oneself unknown. Only a few days ago, a lady of your c'ty (Frankfort) who seems to be well informed on almost any other subject asked your correspondent, the question, where in Bloomington? Mr. W. F. Smith who is attending College at Lexington, came down on a visit to his parents Friday evening and remained until Monday morning. The sun seems to shine more brilliant, and the birds warble sweeter solus when he is with us. Come often. We are afways glad to see you, William. Mr. Thomas I. Yount living some three miles north of this place is the owner of a pig now some three weeks old, thnt has natiirnl and well defined ear marks. A Hwnllow fork in the left, and split in the light ear. Mr. Yount savs these marks ne as smooth as if made by a knife. The pig is in good health and can be seen by the curiously inclined at any timehy calling on Mr. Yount at his farm. The next will be Franklin county's time to furnirdi the senator for this the 20th senatorial dUtriet. Several gentleman have already been mentioned ns probable caudi dates, among them Gen. Scott Brown, Hon. .John L. Sneed and Hon. Thos. W. Scott. With either of tluse gentlemen in the senate, nnd Col. S. I. M. Major, or Gen. John Hodman in the lower house, couldn't we boast of a team that would be dilltmlt to duplicate. Well. Mnllie seems lo have had linen as well as her feelings rumpled judging from the manner in which she comes back at our civil engineer. Mr. WooiNon may and in our judgement does know how to make plans at d sjeiitl i'i t'ons for roads, luidgis etc . but it is bad judgement in any gentleman to raise the ire of one of these fair ones, God bless them we love them all alike, but we have long since learned to steer clear O one when she is angry. We are glad to note and doubtless the the consumers of coal in the city of Frnnkfojt and vicinity will be glad to know that our lellow citizen H C.Steele, , will, within the next 8U days open a coal yard in the Citv of Frankfort. The location of which has not been definitely settled ns vet, but we now bespeak for him n liberal share of the trade from the good people of Frankfort and Franklin countv. Campbell Steele is the svnonym of honesty, while he has been wrecked in fortune his good name for and fair dealing stands intact and untarnished. He is a gentleman with whom it is pleasant to transact business, Success to yoiit Cnptiiin, js the voice ol all your Bloomington friends. Nll'PKK. Bridgeport. Persimmons next in order.

The meeting at the Graefensburg Baptist Church is still in progress, and great interc.it is manifested.

The enterprising and liberal citizens living on Benson street are determined to have thai avenue illuminated and to that cud hrtve subscribed money enough to put up two or more lamps.

Pence, is in charge of the braucli yard at Lexington, during the absence of Mr. Sid. S. King, who has gone to the Ex-posit on. Mr. II. was expected home yesterday. It is gratifying to our citizens to see the floor on the Railroad Bridge progressing again. The company have beenjvery dilatory in replacing this floor, and it has been a source of great inconvenience to the citizens of the portli end of the county. We suppose the demagogical gentlemen who were so opposed to the convicts improving the boulevard are satisfied now when they see the miserable condition this thoroughfare is in. No matter how jaded the constitution may be from disease or excess, the Great German Invigorntor restores it permanently See advertisement. For sale by .foe Le Compte.
