Paris Loses Opner To Richmond.
Paris'Jost the opening came of the
aeries with the Pioneers on the Rich
mond grounds yesterday afternoon by
a score of 13 to 3.
' Paris yielded a gee-saw affair to the
Lawmakers at White Park Saturday
afternoon, the visitors winning by a
score of 9 to 8. Hauser had an oft
day and his slants were to the liking "of
the visitors, who were free with their
hits to the latter part of the sixth
when he was relieved by Appleagte,
who. finished the game. Langfitt prov
ed easy for the locals and before three
men had been retired in the sixth ses
sion following a fusillade of safe drives
he was yanked from J;he rubber and
The five errors made by Paris were
each responsible for a run. The, locals
made a lively bid for the nontest in the
ninth when after two were out Chap
man doubled to center and was ofllow
ed by Mollenkamp who singled sending
in a ;run. Goodman retired the side
with an easy roller to Zimmerman.
Paris took the double bill from the
Pioneers at White Park Sunday after
noon, winning the initial contest by a
score of 3 to 2, and the last 8 to 2.
Hauser who was driven from the
mound in the game Saturday by the
Lawmakers, came back and pitched
both of the seven inning affrays. He
held the visitors to two hits in the
first game and when the locals forged
ahead bv a big margin in the second,
he eased his pace and never exerted
himself in the innings following.
The locals put up an excellent arti
cle of ball and found Black in the first
game easily, while in the second he
was driven from the rubber in the
first inning. Manager Jones took his
place but he could not stop tho hitting
streak of the locals who hit the ball
freely at ail stages.
Locke starred at short accepting an
even dozen chances without an error,
while the remainder of the team field
ed well. Harrell had the only two
errors in the first game while the on
ly one in the second was registered
With the second game hopelessly
lost left-fielder Snyder, of the Pion
eers took exceptions to a decision
rendered by Umpire Franklin at the
home plate and when he became off
ensive toward the officials he was
assessed a fine of $5. This served to
greatly arouse the anger of Snyder
who assaulted the umpire, striking
him in the breast and police interfer
ence was necessary. The offending
principal was taken from the ground
by an officer.
Vein Struck at Blue Lick.
Blue Lick Springsjbids airto become
the famous resort that it was several
years ago. Workmen engaged in sink
ing a well near the old well struck a
rich vein of Blue Lick water at a depth
of five hundred feet, and the gusher
yielded so rapidly that within an hour
the water was within eighteen feet ol
the top of the well.
Much excitement prevails in the
Blue Lik neghborhood and the people
believe the finding of the vein means
the restoring of the famouB watering
place to its former position that of
the must prominent in the South.
5Several years ago the old well at
Blue Licks ran out and repeated
efforts have been made to locate a
vein of water, but without result until
Saturday. The water from the new
vein is said to compare very favora
bly with that of the old well, and a
sample has been sent to a chemist to
Paris Team At Home Tnursday.

turn to Paris with the Mt. Sterling
clan for the only game of the week
on the local grounds and the remain

Promising Show Colt Injured.
The nromising show colt belonging
to Speakes Bros., of this city,
has created such a sensation at the
fairs in this section of Kentuckv,
where she has been exhibited in the
show ring, met with an accident Fri
day that may prove disastrous to her
owners. The colt was
on the train to be taken
to be readv for the Blue Grass Fair.
when in some manner the boards lead

the right hind leg of the animal,
badly la3cerating the member. It is
the intention of her owners to exhibit

today and it is btobable her injury'wiil
lessen the chances for the blue tie.
The colt is pronounced by expert
horsemen to be the finest specimen
ever seen in the show ring and bar
ring the accident would have made
great show at the Lexington fair.
However, her owners will try for the

The Funeral of Mr.
The funeral of Mr. Clifton Jefferson
McLear, who died in this city Wednes
day evening, August 7, just as the
shades of night were falling, was held
at the Baptist chruch, Friday after
noon, at half-past three o'clock.
The church was filled with represen
tatives of all denominations in the
city, friends of this Christian man and
his faithful wife, who, sincecoming to
Pana about twelve jears ago, -have
won the love and respect of the entire
community by their upright business
methods, their devotion to the cause of
righteousness, and to each other.
It was a source of regret that the
pastor of the church, Rev. E. M.
Lightfoot," couldjiot be present upon
this occasion to offer his tribute of
love and respect to the Christian char
acter of Mr. McLear, whom he loved
as a brothre, and to whom he minister
ed so tenderly during the long, weary
months of illness.
In his absence, Rev.Geo. W. Clark,
of Henderson, Ky., who during his pas
torate of the Pari3 church, endeared
himself to Mr. and Mrs. McLear, cm
ducted the service. He read appropri
ate Scripture lessons from the XV
chapter of I Corinthians and from the
Book of Revelations, in reference to
the new creature, the new abode and
the new conditions of the saints after
death. His text was from Job 14-14
"If a man die shall he live again?"
A singular coincidence was that this
was the same passage of Scriptre used
at the funeral of ;Mr. McLear's little
daughter twenty-seven years ago, and
was selected by Bro. Clark without
this knowledge., The speaker dwelt
upon the immortality of the human
soul as taught in God's word, and said
that the soul and body are distinct, the
body being the dwelling place of the
soul until time for their separation,
when the body returns to dust, and the
soul, purified and made perfect through
suffering, to the God who gave it.
Rev. Clark then paid a high tribute
to the Christian life and character of
Mr. McLear, saying that it was emi
nently proDer for the chucrh and the
community to pause and honor the
memory of a Christian man, such as
this one, who in his life en.ioyed a
good name, a good reputaion with all
who knew him.
His intergity. his uprightness were
above reproach and he was always
true to his convictions. He was one of
the be-t known and most ponular hotel
men in Kentucky, and in his chosen
business stood as a monument of un
swerving fidelity to principle. His
methods may have been uniuqe, but he
was above conducting that business
along the lines usually followed he
would permit no objectionable lan
siuage. no unbecoming conduct. He
himself was uniformly courteous, pure
and chaste in his conversation and con
duct, and eneavored to require the
same fiom thosa who frequented his
place of business.
He also refused absolutely to sell
liquor in the hotels which be managed,
although this stand cost him thousands
of dollars, yet he declined to make
any compromise with eil, and was
alwavs true to his temperance princi
ples for the sake ot humanity. In his
very last conversation with his loved
ones only a short time before his voice
was forever hushed, he urged them to
continue the fight for temnerance in
which he had been engaged for more
than thirty years.
Mr. McLear was a man of good
works as well as good man, was kind,
gentle and charitable, contributing
largely to the church, to temperance,
and to everv good cause. He would
never accept remuneration for board
from clergymen, no matter of what
denomination. There was always a
place at his table and in his house for
the minister of God. in any community
where he conducted a hotel. Surely
such a noble man has received a rich
reward, and has been given an "abun
dant entrance into that upper and bet
ter kingdom." ,
The tenderest love and sympathy
are extended to the wife wno has walk
ed by his side, sharing his burdens,
his joys, and his sorrows, for thirty
five years, and between whom there
was the most perfect companionship.
Their devotionwas beautiful and com
plete, and now" that she is left entirely
alone, the friends who love her pray
that the promises which were so preci
ous to her beloved, and his faith and
i submission may console and sustain her
in her loneliness and sorrow.
Rev. Dr. B. M. Shive, pastor of the
Presbyterian church, added his tribute
