The orchard, the meadow, the deep tangled wildwood, And every loved spot which my in fancy knew." Boone county, Kentucky, to gether with Kenton and Camp bell counties form that part iof the state in the -'horseshoe" of the Ohio river. Boone county was named for one of the grand est figures in frontier history, Daniel Boone. There were but few settlements in Kentucky prior to the first settlement in Boone county. The great grandfather of the writer ac comDanied bv several other i p families emigrated from Mad', son tcounty, Virginia and set tied in Boone county, Kentucky in 1H05. At that time Cincin nati, Ohio consisted of two brick houses, two frame houses and a few log cabins. A farm and orchard were where Cov ington now stands. These ear ly settlers were strict Luther ans and soon met at the home of George Rouse and organized a church. The history of Boone county we glean from "A His torv of the Lutheran Churches of Boone county, Ky.." by Rev. H. Max Lentz, .who for eleven years was pastor of the church which had been organized by those early settlers. Rev. Lentz died or was drowned in the Ohio River al Shepherdstown, W. Va., while we were in Ken tucky. There have oeen many changes in Boone county dur ing our recollection. As we re member there was many acres primeval forests, now nearly all these lands have been cleared. The land is very broken although there is con siderable of the county level. The country has not improved es much as has Our Grand Mis souri. At one time land there sold for much more than did our laud, but today laud sel.s about the same. A few families settled in Boone county in the dawn of the 19th century and the peo ple there now are nearly all descendants of those early set tlers, i here being but few emi grating there. A better, more hospitable people would be hard to find and no pains or ex pense is spared to make the stay of the guest a pleasant one. Long will we look back over lite's path to the pleasant oasis of 1902, while we were in Kentucky. While there we at tended the Boone county fair, nine miles from Codington. The fair was held at Florence, a town ot S3H inhabitants. On Friday of the fair there were 10,000 people present. Many fine cattle and horses were on exhibition. The area ot Boone county is 242 square miles; population 1900 census, 11,170; area of Monroe county. Mo.. 666 square tniin. population 19,716. The lareet town in Boone county has a population of 538, so you tee that the county is much more thickly settled than this The famous Big Bone Lick is in in the Quincy day. street fair Tues- Narrow Escape. Rufus Christian of Warren township, had a narrow escape from what 'might have been a serious injury Saturday after noon. He was "riding horse back and driving three mules tied together, bringing them to Palmyra. When near the sta tion a freight train came along and frightened, the mules and they stampeded and knocked the horse he was riding down and ran over Mr. Christian in a bunch. He was taken to Dr. Sanford's office where neces sary medical attention was given him. Upon examination it was ascertained that no bones were broken, but he was pretty badly bruised. He was able t be out in a few hours, although iie was pretty sore. Hannibal Journal. Re-Elected. The officers of the fair asso ciation have been re-elected ex cept Sec. R. S McClintic who declined re-election. They are as follows: H W Wood, pres; J J rtogers. vice-pres; John Cox. Secy and J G Wade. Treas. So Far. So lat this week the Steel smith Van Dyke Co. have play ed to good houses and pleased the people greatly. Right at the start the Steelsmilh family are good people and put clean plays oi tr.e boards. They are successful and deserve it. Theatre Party. J. G. Wade and wife gave a nice six o'clock dinner and the atre party Tuesday. The hap py guests were: Misses Mamye Losson, Bessie Asbury. Mary Landers, Ella Hawkins. Emma Jackson and Mr and Mrs. Alex Melfeon. The establishment of the five Rural Mail Routes out of this city made a new order of things. It requires a two cent stamp on all letters put in the Monroe City postoffice for a patron of this office on a Rural Route. There are people, who now get their mail on a Rural Route from this city, who formerly got their mail at some other postoffice. It is important that the No. of the Rural Route as well as the name of the postoffice be put on all letters or packages addressed to persons on Rural Routes as it facilitates deliv ery. i i We have succeeded in col lecting the following list of names of the patrons of the various routes out of this city and the number of the Route on which they receive their mail This list is very useful and every person getting a copy should,: file for reference as it will be needed. In this list we only aimed to irive the name of the head of i the family. Doubtless there are many more names which should be on tl.e list. We will take pleasure in publishing other names in the future. One thing to remember: Al ways put the number of the Route as well as the name of postoffice on all matter Jaddress ed to persons on Rural Routes. The list of patrons classified according to Route is as follows: J L Brezee, Wm H Bannister, Jas D Eannister, I A Borden, Frank Bottorff Joseph E Cairico.
