In reply Clerk Paton received a letter from General Crowder, , in which he regretted to state that at present it would be impossible to se cure the coveted war trophies, as the request would necessarily have to come before the officials of the War rwartment in the regular channels of official business, and that, further more, it. would have to be' matter for legislation. ueuci complimented Clerk Paton on the ex cellent administration of his duties in connection with the selective draft service, and a4ded that he wouli do all he could .to 'assist in se- 'for Bourbon' curing the tropmes .:'H .", - ' : - , , , VV ' 'iAK "''&&& - ry&&&'tt& EIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, PARIS, KENTUCKY .

" or county had ever heen- ganior named, it is as old as the National Government, and it was organized and came into being in the same year in which the Constitution of the United States was adopted. At the time of the establishment of the Presbyterian church in what is now known as the City of Paris, this city consisted simply of a few rurely constructed log huts and did not ex ceed, according to the best authori ties, more than about three hundred persons in its population: It had'nt even risen to the dignity of having a name; it had never been incorporated as a municipality; and it was not un til 1789 that the Virginia Legislature passed as act incorporating it as a municipality under the name of Hopewell; and in the following year, 1790, the same Legislature changed this name to the City of Paris. The Reverend Andrew McClure was the pastor, who organized and ministered to this congregation until his death in 1793. It appears from the records that during the years that Mr. McClure ministered to this church, he likewise' ministered to a Presbyterian church located at Rud dles' Mills, and known as Stoner Mouth Church. The old walls of this church were standing at a time well within the memory of the writer. The first church building in this city was a stone building located upon a lot now occupied by the resi- dence of the late James T. Davis. This building, sometime about 1820, was taken down and a brick struct ure was built upon the same siter during the ministry of the Reverend John McFarland. This church at Paris was organiz ed by what is known as Transylvania Presbytery, which Presbytery was or ganized in 1786, and was the first Presbytery organized west of the Al leghaney Mountains, and the minis ters composing this Presbytery were: The Rev. David 'Rice, R.ev. Andrew McClure, -Rev. Thomas craigneaa, ReviuAdam Rankin and Rev. James Crawfprd. In the spring of 1795 the Rev. Sam uel Rannells, likewise an emigrant from the State of Virginia, succeeded the Rev. Andrew McClure as the pas tor of this church, and he continued his ministry from that time until his death on the 26th day of March, 1817. It is recorded of him that he was a most earnest, zealous and la borous worker in the interest of his church. He came to Paris as a single man, but after a few months he returned to' Virginia, where he -r.aA and returned to this VViUa uiaiiKi ,, place with his bride. And from me time that he came to this church in 1795 up even till this hour, it is shown by the records that some mem. ber of his family or some one of his lienal descendants has been connect ed with this church; and it is now represented in ' its sessions by Mr. James D. McClintock, a great-grandson This pious and Godly man had two' sons who likewise entered the iiof nf the Presbyterian church and were highly successful in the Master's cause. nw -Rev. Mr. Rannells' was suc ceeded by' the Rev. Wm. Wallace, a mat of most, brilliant talents and Ardent piety, but who died after a t ,vr mt one year. He was d. in 1820, by the Her.

According to reports received here yesterday from Mr. H. F. Hillenjmeyer, of Lexing ton, the depth of the rainfall for the past two days was nearly 3 inches and a half, an inch and one-half falling during Wednesday. Mr. Hill enmeyer stated that the rain, had been general all though Central Kentucky. Wednesday night the rain changed to snow, which continued intermittently for most of the night. Yesterday the temperature dropped to 24 degrees above zero. Heavy rains covering" a period of about sixty hours put Stoner and Houston ctreeks, running through Paris, out of their banks, and flooded the lowlands along these streams. Branches became creeks and flowed all over the surrounding territory. Travel was seriously impeded in some parts of the county. Teamsters from North Middletown had tq make a de tour by way of Stony Point and the Winchester pike, to get to Paris. Yesterday morning the water was al (most up to the-first floor of the Paris Milling Company, the old baseball grounds in White Addition and all the lowlands adjacent being under water. Residents of t the lowland portions of Ruckerville were com pelled to seek higher ground and move their household effects and per sonal belongings to places of safety. Following the rains a cold wave set in, which reports In the daily papers Indicate spread over the Northwest, Southwest and Middle Western States, delaying traffic and causing great inconvenience. The mercury dropped in Chicago to near ly zero, while extreme temperatures were reported from widely varying localities. The cold wave was accompanied by snow east of the Mississippi, in northwestern Texas a blizzard raged and in Nebraska and South Dakota similar conditions were reported. In Wyoming temperatures ranged from 1 to 37 degrees below zero and it was 12-below at Denver.- ' Train service was seriously af fected in Western Kansas and Colo rado, as well as in Northern Texas, but temperatures are moderating in Colorado.
