Its n cold wind that blows everybody ice. Old Probs went a "flahin' " Sunday and lolt the back door open. Happy is the small boy who knows which aide hla pop corn ia buttered on. There haa been a rise of more than three feet in the river during the last few days, The thermometer marked aa low as two degTeea below aero in places Tuesday morn ing. An ordinance to prohibit tho running at large of stock wottld be a wholesome law for Lexington. Mr. Itobt. Taubman has purchased the Mrs. Withers' lot on Franklin avenue, paying therefor fl.OGO. The county court has designated the Commercial bank aa the depository of the county funds for the next two years. Tee Intelligencer's friends will find the door to Its editor's room the easiest opened in town. Come and see him. Class in geography. Teacher: Where is Mysore? Small boy: I don't know where your sore is, but mine is on my big toe. There are several dilapidated, rough and uneven sidewalks in the city. These should all be repaired; and where there are no sidewalks sidewalks should be laid. If the ground hog peeped out lost Mon day, in the hope of getting a good look at his ahadow, saw anything that was not reality itself, deponent faileth to say just when it was. A good many of the walks on the thor oughfares leading to the Missouri Pacific depot are getting ont of repair, and should receive the attention of the proper official at the proper time. - Floating ice In the river all day Tuesday made the occasional trips of the ferry boat slow and tedloua.

A lady can hardly pars there without being insulted. The purchase by Mr. Taubman of the lot at the corner of Sixteenth street and Franklin avenue, has given a sort of boom to vacant lota and salable property in that neighborhood. It waa a notable aale. The Intelligencer ventures the asser tion that it haa a larger circulation than the oomblned circulations of both tbe other Lexington papers, with an out-of town paper thrown in for good count. The ground hog didn't see his "shadder" And that made the ice men madder So they all begun to rave, "Till there came a big cold wave, And now the jolly ice men are gladder. A eigar stub ia called a "snipe." A clg arette stub ought to be called a anlpelet, and the boy that ia detected smoking one ought to be called to the wood-shed to play the part of suffering victim in a pad' dllng bee. Don't make any mistake about the In rELLlGENCER's subscription list. Very few country papers ever reach the low water mark of tbla paper.

The young ladles of Dover gave an ele gant reception Friday evening, from seven to eleven, at the beautiful residence of George B. Gordon, in honor of J. L. Qroves and wife, who were married last Wednes Jay afternoon at 6 o'clock. The Knights of Pythias, of Slater, pro pose to dedicate the hall they have just completed In that city, on the 19th of this month, the twenty-seventh anniversary of the ordrr. John H. Holmes, grand keeper of records and seal, will be the orator of the occasion. Mrs. W. Z. Hickman was the recipient of four fine Plymouth Rock roosters, from Mr. Joel Lipscomb, of Jackson county, thla week. The birds were from the poul try yards of Mr. Kurtz,and are of tho some strain which took the prize at the New Orleans exposition. The INTRLX.IGRNOKR Job presses have turned off a number of handsome jobs this week including three suites of wedding cards. Parties wanting elegant work should always call on the Intelligencer, where good work, prompt delivery and reasonable prices always rule the day. W. F. Zeiler entertained a few of his friends last Friday evening at supper. At half past seven the guesta were invited into the dining room to an elegant spread, ar ranged with taste by Mrs. Zeiler as sho always does. At a late bour tbe guests loot their departure all having had a pleasant time. Chas. BoHham and Miss Lydln Witt, late of Kentucky have purchased a hand Mine buggy from Russell. Our informant states that a Philadelphia lawyer couldn't understand the contract that is between these two; but net thinks that ere long eome preacher'a palm will be well silvered with a wedding fee.

The llaoketl and Seawell coal mlnos above town huvo been cloned on account c ' warm weather and slack trade. Harry Uoodo has resigned his position with W. K. TriRg, and accepted a position in the tafuyette County bank. Charles Muckey entertained a few friends lu a most charming manner last Wednes day evening, ut his borne, south of this city. Misses Kstolle and Mazee Mcllrew and theirguests,MiHseH Addinonud Lily Uleun, will be ut home to their friends on Tucs duy afternoon. The festival given by the ladies of Christ Episcopal church, Thursday night, was a grand success, something near $75 having been realized. Miss Harah O. Powell and little Annie Crispin, of Richmond, were the guests of Mrs. John Powell lost week. Kdith Powell returned with them. Charles Ueyor bought tho Bou-Ton r-s-taurant of Kd. Lee Tuesday, and within an hour sold it to Billy Meyer, making quite a snug sum in the rapid transaction. Twenty of the pupils taught by Miss Fannio Hpears went to the Page City HChoolhouso last week for a spelling match. It resulted in favor of the Page City pupils. County Clerk Ewing, who has been con fined to his room for the past three or four weeks is so much bettor that he expects to be able to resume his duties next Mondny. Tho ferry boat ran into the pontoon bridge Monday, causing some damage to the latter. The damage has been repaired, however, and the bridgo resumed business yesterday morning. The pupils of the Baptist Female Col lege, assisted by Prof. Von Maoielinskl.the noted violinist of Kansaa City, and Prof. C. C. Parker, gave one of the pleasantest concerts of the season at the opera house last evening. It was quite largely attend ed and a brilliant success. E. T. Thorpe, of Greenton, called on the Intelligencer Thursday. Mr. Thorpe is engaged in raising fine horses and givea Intelligent attention to this line of bust ncBs. His thoroughbred stallion, "Ken tucky Messenger" has wintered well and will enter the spring season in unexcep tlonally good shape. The I. A. C. C. was entertained last Thursday evening by Misses Mary Wilson and Martha Crenshaw at the home of the former. The hours flew only too swiftly by in social games and conversation. Elcgaut refreshments were served, and at late hour the guests took their depar ture,all having had a most enjoyable time. Old Uncle Pete Mathews ia quite color ed, also decidedly hard of hearing. Never theless Peter is tolerably well posted. Wednesday Pete said, "I hears dat Saul ob Tarsus is in de town an gwine to preach ter nlte. Why bless your soul I tot dat Saul of Tarsus was dead long ago, but sence he's nlivo ylt. Ise n gwine to hear him, shore." Tpni Field, colored, seemed to be on the war path Thursday. About noon of that day be and son, Watt, had an ear pulling, in which the latter came out victorious, At the Colored Baptist church that night John Simon got boisterous and objected to being put out,whereupon Field discharged his pistol, he says to merely scare him, as he hit no ione. There will probably be nothing done about it. Lee Hutchison, Major Curry and Dud Ingram all colored, and from Higginsville, were brought here and lodged In jail Sun day to await the action of the grand jury for burglary and larceny, on the night of January 26th. They broke into the engine room at the coal mines of Charles Rober- aon and stole a number of articles valued at flS. They also broke into Fritz Lang- krohr's cellar and stole a keg of beer. All the articles were recovered except the beer. A Good Law. Perhaps in no city in the state will the passage of the anti-cigarette law have a more decided effect thnn Lexington. Here, perhaps, more cigarettes are used, taking into account population, than in any other town in the state. All classes use them the studied physician, who should, for the sake of the example he sets his profession, eschew them above most other men; the hurried business man, who claims that a cigar or a pipe consume too much of his time; the quiet man about town, with uotliiug bettor to do, and no cure for the precept; the young manjust now entering the estate of full manhood; the youth, who thinks i 'h "smart" to do things he sees men ,and the things bin younger coin fibna have not learned; the boy of from 'flye to. fifteen years, who should U- taken across his father's knee and given such an aversion to cigarettes us will luit him for the balance of his natural life. The sale of the deadly little plague is helped wonderfully by the students at Wentworth academy, who seem to delight in violating one of the rules of the school and offending the nostrils of those with whom they accidentally come in contact ut the same time. One of these students, hardly more thau 10 yours old, informed an Intkluikn CEK reporter that he sometimes smoked as many us four boxes of cigarettes in n day, and had gone as high us six. Another smoked six in rapid succession, while he walked from Sixteenth and Franklin to the postofiiee, and said that he sometimes took walks of two or three miles and smoked constantly at that rate. The stubs thrown down by these stu dents and others, some of them luirdlv more than an half an inch loug.ure eagerly sought and finished by the small !oys, black and whites whose purses will not permit of an occasional whole one. Another youth with whom the reporter talked said he had just passed through one of the most laughable scenes of his life as he watched his 7-year-old sister learn to smoke some of his cigarettes. His young est brother, not quite six, had leeu made desperately ill with his first one some weeks ago, but now would smoke six or eight a day with no trouble whatever. A colored boy fourteen years old said he sometimes stole a nickle from his father's pockets after the latter hod gone to bed from a hard day's toil in the mines, and spent It for cigarettes. There is hardly a square yard of the pavement on Franklin or Main streets, from the court house east to Twentieth street that does not show an empty cigarette box thrown away tho stub of a nearly consumed cigarette, or some other mark of the presence in large numbers of this morphine-tainted, villlanous smelling little pest. A law that provides a heavy penalty against the dealer who sells a box of cigar ettes to a boy would hardly be complete without an additional penalty for the boy found smoking them, or for the boy's father who would permit his son to smoke them.

K. Wendling at the opera house last Tuesday night to a large and attentive audience, all the seats on the ground floor being taken and the side galleries filled by the stu dents of the Elizabeth Aull Seminary. The; address was a masterful one and showed that his subject, "Saul of Tar sus" had Iwen thoroughly investigated at every point, and as a result the speake r by his eloquence and originality of Hi ought was enabled to hold the wrapt attention of each listener for more than one and a half hours. Much was ex pected of Mr. Wendllng by those who had listened to his magnificent lecture upon Stonewall Jackson, and they were not disappointed. Our citizens are cer tainly greatly indebted to the principals of our schools for the instructive and elevating entertainments which they are providing for them.

How would it do for n Presbyterian preacher to wed a Methodist girl? Neither would have to bo immersed. If it were so the preacher would have to go under.
