Hhrk's wishing our many readers and the reat of humanity a merry Christmas and then a happy New Year. Will Foster, Hicks, Wiggins and the rest of the weather prophets please tell us what has become of that snow that was to cover the earth Christmas Day? TnK appropriations made the Council at Lexington for the present fiscal year will exceed the collections by $10,000. They are high-flyers up there and pretty free with the people's money. JIrs. Laura January Wkihi advertised extensively to give a lecture at Louisville, but made it convenient to keep away from the hall until after the audience had disappeared. She advertises well, but never lectures. We are disappointed in Speaker Crisp. Unless he adopts a different course from the one he has pursued of late he will soon divide the Democratic party into two very bitter factions and destroy all hopes of a National victory next year. That election clerk at Louisville who doctored the returns and attempted to elect a man whom the people had not chosen will likely land iu the peniten tiary. Four indictments have been re ported against him. The penitentiary is the proper place for all such rascals. TnK Adams Express Company has been " in it " the past few days. The handling of Christmas gifts has added thousands to its cash receipts, and its late crooked ex-President Hoey has been compelled to turn over to it a million dollars worth of real estate and securities. That clever writer and pleasant gentle man Harry Summers, editor of the Eliza bethtown News and President of the Kentucky Press Association, has been called up higher, and will keep the readers of the Louisville Times posted on doings at the National Capital this winter. A writer in the Lexington Leader gives the Republicans of Kentucky some plain talk. He says the 65,000 negro voters of the Commonwealth must be recognized at the next State convention of the G. O. P. or they will be felt at the polls. The colored leaders are manifest ing a strong disposition to force the party to ,'ive them some of the " pie." Millkrsdi'rg people made a grand kick -when the Kentucky Wesleyan College wa. removed a few years ago, but they will be wanting somebody else to give them a good kicking before long, if they don't ceae their outrageous treatment of ministers of the Gospel. They have a female college there yet, but they'll find that parents won't send their daughters to a place where such disgraceful doings as rotten-egging preachers are winked at and encouraged. Coi-ovkl Geo. L. Willis, Frankfort cor respondent of the Ixniisville Times and Danville Advocate, is very much con cerned about the organization of the llou-e of Representatives of the next Legislature, and is wastinc a good deal of ink and paper on the " ten mongiel Dem ocrats, who want to get into the caucus." " The game is not worth the candle," Brother Willi?. It wouldn't be a Demo cratic caucus, if every Tom, Dick and Harry elected on any other ticket were allowed to participate. The State Journal says $30,000 wad spent on the streets of Newport this year, and that it would be almo-t impossible for one to And any proof of it. The Journal adds that that sum i annually dumped in the gutters by the authorities down there, and suggests that the city would save money if she would issue bonds and pave the stieets with asphalt, which would guarantee fine thorough fares and add to the value of her prop erty. What is true of Newport on this subject is true of many other Kentucky cities. It is almost throwiug money away to use it in putting limestone mac adam on the streets. The representatives of the third-class cities failed to assemble last week at Hen derson, and are now called upon to meet at Frankfort January 4. "Unless Bowling Green and Frankfort succeed in having themselves ranked a little ahead of their census standing as they are probably justly entitled to do the class will only include Paducah, Henderson and Owens boro," says the Louisville Courier-Journal. What's the matter with Maysville, we should like to know? The enumer ation, now boing made, will undoubtedly give our city a population of 8,000. The C.-J. has overlooked tho fact that Jlays villo 1ms " growed" considerably of late. Nashville, Dec. 24. The exact date of the return of the convicts to the mines at Bricerille and other points in cast Tennessee has not as yet oeen de cided upon. The lessees are anxious that the convicts be returned at once, but the state authorities are of the opin ion that should they take steps to send the prisoners to the mines before the holidays trouble would undoubtedly en sue. Warden Wade says the miners were paid off Saturday and are now awaiting information from the capital city as to the date of the return of the convicts, and would no doubt givo them an unwelcome reception, and therefore nothing will t done until after Jan. 1. For the Children. Our readers will notice the advertise ments in these columns of Chamberlain & Co., Des Moines, Iowa. From personal experience we can say that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has broken up bad colds for our children and we are acquainted with many mothers in Centervillo who would not be without it in the house for a good many times its cost and are rec ommending it every day. Centervillo (S. D.) Chronicle and Indev. Twenty-five cent, 50 cent and SI bot tles for sale by Power & Reynolds. "I do not desire tho Democratic nom ination and shall certainly make no effort to got it. I am satisfied with my lot. I am happy in my family, am making a comfortable living, have had all the honor that attaches to the Presidency. I have been twice nominated by my party for that office, and .that is enough to satisfy my ambition as a party man. The office is a thankless one. No matter how ad ministered, criticism will follow, and as for myself, I am out of tho race, unless the nomination should be1 tendered me by a unanimous vote without the slight est scheming to secure such a nomina tion." A close friend of ex-President Cleve land reports him as having expressed himself as above. The country learned long ago that he is not a wire-puller, but ho will not have to do "the slightest scheming" to get the nomination next year. Two Big Judgments Against the C. andO. Two big railroad cases were decided in the United States Court at Covington this week. One was by compromise and one by the jury. In the suit of Charlotte Theobold'8 administrator against the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, Ken tucky Central Railroad and the South Covington and Cincinnati Street Rail road, a compromise was made. The total amount to be paid is 6,250. Of this the street car company pays ?3,750 and the Chesapeake and Ohio $2,500. Tho rail road and street car companies are to pay all the costs in the case, which will run up to $250 more. In the case of Walter Sine's adminis trator against the K. C. and C. and O. Railroads, the jury found for the plaintiff in the sum 'of $5,000. The verdict was against the Chesapeake and Ohio the case against the K. C. being dismissed. 1 1 Same Old Game. Says the Louisville Times: "Mrs. Laura January Webb was advertised to lecture at Liederkranz Hall last Monday evening on ' Woman's Opportunity.' A fair audience assembled, but Mrs. Webb's absence was painfully conspicuous to those who had the enterprise in charge. A few recitations served to kill time and keep the people in their seats until nearly 9 o'clock. Still Mrs. Webb was missing and the audience had to be dis missed. " Just before the lights were turned out the missing Mrs. Webb came to view. She explained that her dress maker had disappointed her, and that was the reason she hadn't kept her engagement. Just why a new gown should be deemed essential, in any part, to the success of the lecture, I confess myself unable to state." For the Fanner. California will put 2,000,000 boxes of raisins on the market this year. A farmer in Texas planted 11,000 pe can trees on 400 acres, and expects a re turn of $60,000 from them in six years. The Salter Futurity, a purse of $7,777, for the get of stallions nominated, to trot as two-year-olds the summer of 1894, at Maysville, will close for sires February 1, 1892. Adams County, OImo, paid hej farmers $403.50 the past year for sheep killed by dogs. This was paid out of the dog tax, and she has 1,SS4 still in the fund. In Brown County, the dogs were more de structive, as sheep claims amounting to $515.10 were allowed a few days ago. One farmer put in a claim for $234.60 for sheep killed and another farmer's claim amounted to $107. That's the right way to handle the matter. Tax the worth less curs to pay for the damage they do. i When liaby as slct, iro gave fler CostorU When she was a Child, she cried for Castoria, When sho became Hiss, she clung to Costorla, When she had Children, she gave them Castoria, Mtta Not Kill (tie rreildent. New York, Dec. 24. Mrs. Ada Thorpe Loftus, who, it is alleged, came here from Europe with the avowed in tention of killing President Harrison, has been adjudged insane and was yes terday taken to Bloomingdale lunatic asylum. Dr. Douglass, of Bellevue hos pital, says she is suffering from a type of insanity similar to that of Guitean. ONI OF A VANISHING RACE. Ee Iluots Over Wide Areas and Is at noma Wherever There Is Wilderness. The professional hunters and trappers who at ono time comprised the whole ol the white inhabitant class in this sec tion are becoming so few that a real old time solitary woodsman who plunges into the forest and divests himself of human companionship is becoming a rare sight. Joe Thomas is one of the best examples that remain of these men, and a study of his characteristics is in teresting. Thomas is a man of about forty. He is slightly below medium height and is not heavily built He appears like a full blooded negro, although he says that his mother was a half breed Indian. He has sparse, tightly curled whiskers and does not look like a Nhnrod and a mighty man among coons and deer. Thomas follows as near the life of the red man as any one can in these days, and has an antipathy to human society, though he is nothing of a misanthrope, und talks well to any one who questions him. In the summer time Thomas works at whatever he can get to do about the cities in this vicinity and through to Uluo. When the squirrel season opens ho is in Ohio, and puts in the first few weeks of the autumn shooting squirrel. As the deer season opens, he emigrates northward, and lor the rest of the win ter lives the life of the solitary hunter, shunning human habitations and sleep ing in the woods in the most inclement weather. His domestic outfit consists of a tent, blankets and a small stove, and he declares that he is more contented in the woods than he would be in town. When the night is cold he lights his fire,. chains his dog up in the tent and sleeps. While tho deer run, Hopkins follows them tirelessly, and when night over takes him on the trail he lies down in the woods to sleep, confident that the deer is as tired as he and will not move during the night unless disturbed, and in the morning will be so stiff that the second day's chase will be a compara tively easy matter. After the deer season is over Thomas starts for the open, and traps skunks and otter and all other fur bearing animals for the rest of the winter. At all times he is ready in cose old Zip Coon comes racking around, and his dog he alleges to be one of the best coon dogs in the country. The animal is a liver and white hound, slightly larger than a fox hound, and with no more fat on him than is required to grease his joints. Thomas said that the dog got him more than fifty dollars' worth of coonskins in one season, and he would not part with him for three times that amonnt. Joe tells a story to illustrate the sagacity of the dog. He says that one winter the dog treed a coon in a big tree. Joe always carries climbing irons, and he skinned up the tree. He followed the coon out on a branch and shook him off, and he heard him squeal as the dog nabbed him. When Joe got to the bottom of the tree there was no coon in sight and no dog. He heard the dog running and called to him; the dog came out of the bushes a moment and then ran back. Joe fol lowed and found that the dog was run ning around a skunk, keeping it from going into its hole. Mr. Dog did not want to interview the skunk closely, but the skunk was not sure of that, and ho kept his eye on the dog, circling around, and the dog was gradually getting him away from his hole. Joe killed the skunk, but he could find no trace of the coon, and concluded that the dog had lost it. The next morning he reproved the dog, saying: "You didn't do right about that coon last night; you lost him. Now you go get him." The dog looked kind of ashamed and moved off. Joe followed him, and they went back to the place where the trouble occurred on the pre vious night. After nosing around a while the dog unburied the coon from where he had buried it, having been afraid to leave it while he went after the skunk, so he buried it, leaving the tail stickiug out of the snow so he could find it again. Some one asked Thomas if he was not afraid that the bears would eat him some night. He said that the only thing that made him mad was that the bears kept away from him and didn't give him a chance. Joe says that the houses are getting altogether too thick, and when he meets up with a house he wants to get as far away from, it as he can and as quick as he can.

"Isn't that rather an extravagant way to begin?" "Not at all. I desire my wife to study economy of my landlady. Then we will start housekeeping, and I will make her an allowance of as much a week as we paid for board." "What do you think will be the re sult?" "Well, by the time we are old she ought to have about a million." New York Weekly. Tree Toads In Demuud. Tree toads are in big demand by young doctors and chemists, who are anxious to learn something of the circulation of the blood. The taree toad has legs that are almost transparent. The young doc tor takes the leg, spreads it out under a microscope and can see tho blood cor puscles chasing each other here and there in tho veins of the leg of the toad.
