The announcement of his death caused expressions of regret from all sides, so universal was the friendly feeling existing between he and so many citizens of this city, where he was born and raised and where he has spent the whole of his life. Capt. Webb passed through Paris Wednesday night on his run between Cincinnati and Knoxville and was in apparently good health, although he has been a sufferer for a great while with heart trouble and has been in the care of a physician for some time.

It is sup posed that he suffered a heart attack some time during the morning from the effects of which he died and his condition was not discovered until yesterday afternoon at about two o'clock. His relatives here were im mediately notified. Mr. Webb was one of the best 'known and most popular conductors on the Kentucky Central Division of the Louisville & Nashville railroad. Not only was he popular with the officials of the company and other em ployes, but was highly regarded by the traveling public. He was held in the highest esteem and regarded, as one of the most valued employes on the road. Mrj Webb, who was about fifty-two years of age, was a son of the late William Webb and Mary C. Webb. He was born and raised in Paris, where he has always made his home. For a number of years he was the local agent of the Adams Express Company, and later took a position with "the railroad company. His promotions came rapidly and when the through runs on this division of the road were established he was promoted to the position he held at the time of his death. About five years ago he was mar ed to Miss Cora Burns, of Nepton, Ky., who with one brother, Mr. Wm. H. Webb, survives.

Stout pre siding, the March term of the Bour bon Circuit Court convened yesterday morning. Indications are that the term will be a very busy one, owing to the number of cases on both the appearance and Commonwealth dockets. Commonwealth's Attorney Victor Bradley arrived yesterday morning to represent the Commonwealth. After hearing motions Judge Stout had Sheriff W. F. Talbott and his depu ties, W. G. McClintock and O. L. Mar shall, sworn, when the grand jun was impanelled as follows: Will Wilson, Sims Wilson, Jack Cunningham, W. S. Isgrigg, John Johnson, David Feld, Aylette Buckner, Walter Kenney, foreman, Maurice Willis, C. T. Wil son, Jeff Kiser, Homer Hutchison. Judge Stout delivered a lengthy charge to the grand jury in which he touched upon all infractions of the law. He told of thirty felony cases, the record of the examining trials be ing turned over to the court officials, saying that this number of crimes had been committed in this commu nity in the past two and one-half months and which was an unusually large number for this county. He said that the crimes were of almost every conceivable nature and that they were due in most instances to the practice of carrying concealed weapons. This he said was responsi ble for most of the crimes that had been committed in this community since the last term of court. He urged the grand jury to investi gate all cases of carrying concealed weapons that were brought to their notice, expressing the opinion that should this element of lawbreakers be punished for such- infractions there would be less crime. He called attention to the liquor laws and the practice of gaming, and urged the jury to investigate any alleged infractions that might be brought to their notice. The grand jury entered upon its deliberations, after being instructed by the court to take up the felony cases when the defendants were confined in the county jail. Shortly before court was adjourned yesterday afternoon the news of the sudden death of Mr. Frank P. Webb, a brother of Circuit Clerk W. H. Webb, which occurred at Knoxville, was received, and this will necessi tate his absence and former Clerk C. E. Butler will fill his position on the opening of court this morning.

All over the city billboards and show windows are displaying the com ing of "Slumberland," a big banner is stretched across Main street with let ters a yard in height proclaiming "Slumberland," and frames of photo graphs of the principal groups and principals of the play are being dis played on the principal streets, giving one an idea of the immensity of this wonderful extravaganza. It is understood that the same pro duction that has been playing in the largest cities, where as high as $2.50 has been charged for the best seats will be given in its entirety here for the 'price of ?1.00 for the highest priced seats.

The consolidation of the Bourbon Female College, of this city, and the Hamilton College of Lexington, was announced Saturday by President R. H. Crossfield, acting for the executive sity. The consolidation will become effective September 1, 1914, when Mrs. M. G. Thompson, precident of Bourbon College, will become the lady principal of Hamilton College, and Miss Alice T.

P. Lowry, of this city, who has re signed from the position of lady prin cipal and instructor in mathematics. The announcement of the consoli dation of the two colleges was receiv ed with much surprise here, and the fact that Mrs. Thmpson will leave the city has been the source of deep re gret since it became known that the two schools would combine at the coming of the session this fall, fall.

The local insitution will close with the end of the session this year, when .Mrs. Thompson will go to Lexington to assume the duties o'f her new po sition next fall.
