Tree's Trunk Represent
Many Lynehings, Olalms
In Lewis County, Kentucky, not many
m'k! fmm Vanceburg, a largo oak tree
sproaJd its branches over the Tollesboro
pike. It it could apeak it would tell
many a tale of horror and ciime. Years
ago, when tho moonshiner was about
tho only inhabitant of the Kentucky
mountains, many men were shot down
in cold blood from ambush. The mur
derer would nearly always bo arrested
and locked up in the Vanceburg jail,
where five murderers are lodging at tho
present time. In the dead of night,
about fifty determined men would ride
into town and demand the keys from
the jailer. The prisoner wouldjthen be
taken to this tree and strung up, 'after
which the body would be riddled with
alugs and left hanging until some one
would cut it down. Tho tree has seven
teen notches on the trunk, no doubt in
dicating the nurnbdr of unfortunate souls
strangled to death, many years ago.

The weather conditions of the past
week wore probably the most beneficial
of the present; season. Up to the 20th,
a season of protracteXl drouth had pre
vailed in many parts of the State, and
crops and vegetation generally were be
L'inning to suffer quite seriously. Upon
that date however, and the following
day, very heavy rains fell in the greater
portion of the State with tho result of
stimulating the growth of all crops and
wonuerimty ungntenmg tne general
outlook. The distribution of rainfall
was not uniform throughout the State,
but comparatively few sections received
less than an inch. The counties border-,
ing on the Ohio show a very large ex
cess, tho average amount reported bein
about 2.50 inches. The central nni
southern counties report amounts rang
ing from 1 inch to 1.50 inches, while the
eastern and southeastern sections re
ceived somewhat smaller amounts.
The wheat harvest is virtually com
pleted in the western half of the State,
and under full headway in other sections.
The yield is generally reported to be
somewhat greater than was anticipated,
being reported from fair to good in the
majority of counties. From many sec
tions in tho central and western counties
come reports of injury from beating
down and lodging, resulting from the
heavy rains. The quality of the har
vested grain is generally" good though
soine few scattered reports of tho pres-
uuuu ui sluui or rust uuvu ivvn received.
Reports relative to corn are favorable
almost without exception, and the pres
ent prospect for the crop is most promis
ing. Its growth is vigorous and healthv,
and while it is short and uneven in
places, its.color is uniformly good. With
a continuance of favorable weather con
ditions it will in a short time recover
from tho effects of frost and worms early
in the season. A few belated fields were
planted during the week.
Tobacco probably received more bene
fit from the favorable conditions of the
week that did any other crop. The rain
made an excellent season for the com
pletion of the work of transplanting, and
revived the plants which were lying on
the hill from the effects of tho drouth.
The plants set out upon high ground are
reported to have been completely de
stroyed in mauy sections. The season
generally has not been favorable to to
bacco, aud many correspondents state
that less than an average acreage has
been planted. The crop is now doing
very well aud the plants are growing
Oats were greatly benefitted by the
rain and tho prospects for the crop great
ly improved. Some cutting has been
done and the yield is reported to be fair.
While reports relative to the crop are
somewhat conflicting, the general pros
pect is for a fair yield.
Barley is being cut, and the yield is
reported to be very good in most sections.
Hemp looks better than it did last
week, and promises a fair crop. Corre
spondents m the hemp raising sections
state that less than an average crop was
planted this season.
The condition pf pastures and meadows
was greatly improved by the rains, but
it is still much below the average in most
parts of the State. Tho outlook for the
Jiay crop is not very promising and past
urage lor stock is still very short. More
rain would do a great d6al for the im
provement of all grasses.
Gardens look very much better than
they did some time ago, and will yield
good crops, though they will be late.
Potatoes are reported to be in excellent
The prospects for a good yield of grapes
aud late fruits are excellent. In many
parts of the State a heavy crop of apples

tetids to personal enjoyment when
rightly used. The many, who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, by more promptly
adipting the world's best products to

the value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the

beneficial properties of a perfect lax

every objectionable substance. '

WOMEN AS JURORS.
Pass Judgment in a Man's
For Broach of Promise.
Louisville, Ky., Juno 24. A Ken
tucky court is to enjoy tho novelty of
a woman jury. It is in a breach-of-promise
suit in which a woman is de
fendant, the suit being almost as novel
as the trial will be. Some weeks ago W.
C. Stivers, a wealthy widower of Garrard
County, in the prime of manhood, sued
Miss Katherine West for $10,000 dama
ges, occasioned by damaged affections.
Tho defendant, a comely young woman
of twenty-live, is a school teacher. Both
had exchanged fond letters, which are
to bo introduced as evidence, and, it is
claimed, a day for the wedding was set.
For some reason Miss West failed to fill
her contract. As enabled by Kentucky's
now Constitution Mr. Stivers brought
suit for damages.
The case will be tried this term before
Circuit Judge M. C.Saufley at Lancaster.
Ho proposes to try the case before a
woman jury, which, under the new Con
stitution, ho may do. Judge Saufloy is
thoroughly in earnest, and says if ho can
not secure a woman jury in Garrard
County ho will send to Mercer County
for a panel.
On and after July 1st, the receipts for
city taxes will bo In my hands for collec
