RUSSELL, Secretary, CAPTAIN DOUGLAS P, ORT, The Louisville Post Has a Compli mentary Sketch of Maysvillo's Ohiof of Police The Louisville Post, in its Monday is sue, published complimentary sketches of a numbor of the Chiefs ot Police of the State. The local correspondent of tho paper contributed the following in refer ence to Captain Douglas P. Ort: " Mays villo has been remarkably fortunate with selections of her Chiefs of Police. Tho majority of them have been men whoso services have reflected honor and credit upon the city. " Douglas P. Ort, the present chief, is no exception to the rule. " Captain Ort is a native of Marietta, 0., but has boon a resident of Maysville Bince 1807. He was elected Chief of Police and took possession of the office January 1, 189-i. His apprenticeship for his present position was passed in the Union army, in which he enlisted in 1864, and served until the end of the war. Ab a police officer his lines have been cast in pleasant places. Attentive to his duties and exact in the execution of them, yet he has never found it nec essary to take human life in the dis charge of these duties. Nor has it fallen to his lot to come in contact with crimi nals of any note, tho attention of tho police for the most part being directed to mere misdemeanors. In fact for a long period Maysvjlle has been free from crime of such character as to deserve general notice, and her citizens, while having perfect confidence in tho ability of their police forco to cope with crime of any nature, congratulate themselves on their exemption from it." i The Modern Mother. Has found that her little ones are im proved more by the pleasant laxative, Syrup of Figs, when in need of the lax ative effect of a gentle remedy, than by any other, and that it is more acceptable to them.

Later they will go to Rome to spend a portion of tho winter." i We have in previous issues made mention of tho fine crayon portraits executed by tho Wattors' party artists, who have their studio at tho St. Charles Hotel. Their work is genuine and true to life and ombodies all tho ieatures that go to make a lifo-liko portrait. What people want is a portrait that, asido from being a neat and pretty one, should have marks of personal distinction delineating tho facial characteristics and expression, as very nearly every face possesses them. The portrait of Mrs. L. V. Davis in tho show window at tho Red Corner and that of Mrs. Susan Bliss in tho show window at Nelson's are cer tainly truo to life and reflect great credit upon tho Wattors party. N. G.
