The statement that a young woman was left at her house and subsequently becoming a mother is true as is also the statement that the woman mysterious lydisappearcd from Aunt Lizzies house leafing her child The boy grew to the age of 13years before he left the county Capt K G Butler of this city and other citizens of the county remember distinctly of seeing him upon several occasions If the story should prove of interest to the readersb of the News I will be amply writing itThe Author In the year 1842 in Adair county Ky there resided in an unfrequented portion of it an old lady who was faI miliarly known astlAunt Lizzie Sharpe She was the midwife for all the married ladies living within five miles of herhumble home and perhaps at her death she had been present at more births than any other womah in a Kentucky She was a remarkably kind old lady a strict member of the Baptist church and in all her undertakings she called upon her God to aid her in carrying them to a successful termination She lived alone about seven miles from Columbia her home being a double log house It was fur II Dished with old time furniture and n- and she had a number otcomfortable feather beds two cows one horse a its few hogs and a well supplied poultry yard of One Thursday evening in the month of May 1842 just as the sun was setting as a gentleman elegantly dressed driving a spirited span of horses accompanied of by a young woman stopped at Aunt Lizzies gate The gentleman alighted walked to the door and knocked It was soon answered to by the old lady who appeared In a nice home woven dress and wearing i white cap Is this where Aunt Lizzie Sharp resides said the gentleman Yes sir I am that lady will you walk in- Accepting the invitation the gentleman entered the building and after 8J short consultation with the old lady tohewords to the young lady who stepped a from the vehicle and accompanied the the gentleman into the house The team being cared for tea was soon ready and the twoweary travelers sat down to a comfortable meal It was t splendidly cooked and was very much enjoyed after a long days Journey Supper over and the dishes cleared away the trio conversed for two hours the gentleman neverglvlnghis nor the ayoungsuspected that they were paa very Important misson still she did not undertake to draw them out believing that that their object inP8ylnghe a visit BwouldFinally the gentleman asked Aunt Lizzie to show the young woman to bed She was carried to an adjacent apartment given a nice berth Aunt Liz ile returning to the room in which the gentleman was sitting Upon reen entering the room the gentlemato gave Aunt Lizzie to the object of his mission The young lady belonged to a wealthy family in In the Blue Grass section of the Statef she had been betrayed and was soon to become a mother In order to hide her shame and save the family to which she belonged from 1Isgracehe desired i to board her until after the critical hour of her life promising to paya liberal sum for her comfortable care The The agreement was made and the gen tleman retired occupying a differen theQngjladyThe next morning after a very early breakfast the gentleman bad a few

evident to be denied by its friends and ad vocates In the first place it ab solutely suspends the coinage of another legaltender silver dollar and confines silver coinage to that ofsubsidiary coin which is only legu tunder to the limited amount of10J and thus further deprecia tes the mint value of all silver bullion It authorizes the Secre tary of the Treasury practically to redeem even the silver dollars if he deems it necessary so that silver is virtually taken out of circulation as primary money and is degraded to mere token meney for change like henickeland the penny and can henceforth have but little effect on the prices of commodities Every thing is based on gold and gold alone as a standard of value and all other forms of money are virtually redeemable in gold and the prices of all commodities are measured in gold Not only so but alob ligations both public and private payable henceforth in gold In fact when eventually the purpose of this bill are attained all the Treasury notes United States greenbacks and silver certifi cates and silver dollars will go out ofcirculation and there will be no other full legaltender money for tho payment of public and private contracts except gold Can the purpose and tendency of this meas ure be anything else but to counteract the increasing influx in the worlds production of gold and to check and contract its volume Not only is this the purpose but it is evidently the further purpose of the contractionists to reduce the volume of full legaltender silver money and thus to contract the general volume of full legal tender money Such a course is bound to result in tin undue contraction of the circulating medium and enhance the price of mon ey on one side and decrease the price of commodities except such as are protected by a trust com bination or monopoly on the other side When population in creases and commerce should expand on pne side the volume of primary money contracts on the other and the inevitable result must be falling prices of wages and all commodities not in a trust and enhancing in value of the standard dollar in one wordI dear money and hard times E Town News The Twentieth Centuiy The New

Condition dea Mlles Thinks United States Army Should Be Larger Gen Miles who has just returned from a long tour of incpoctI6nin the far west and south sara The fortifications along the Pacific coast and the gulf are in very good condition The engineers have done good work While the harbors are only partly protected it would not be safe for a hostile battleship or fleet to enter them now None of the har bors is completely fortified The four great moors of the Pacific coast at which defensive works are being erected are Puget sound the mouth of the Columbia river San Francisco and San Diego There are only enough artillerists stationed on the coast to take care of the guns not enough to man them The guns are great pieces of machin try and require very skilled artillerists to take QUO of them and to handle them More artillery is needed along the entire coast of 4000 miles Includ Snitthe Atlantic Pacl1lo and gulf garrisons were not sufficiently strong at the posts I visited This Is due to the fact that most of the army is out of the country at present Con grass authorized a regular army of 65000 men and 35000 men for the exIisting emergency For a good many years I have been in favor of one pot flier for every thousand of our pecpte I think 65000 men should be skilled I the modern art of war and the use of modern appliances That would be e very small number B compared with other armies of tho world but yet suf ficiently large to keep abreast of the improvements in warfare which are being made Of course the size of the army1 POPu1aUongovernment A country like Mexico would not require an army as large as that of Germany or Russia Onf country ta nearly twice the size of Germany or France and a small fow of comparatively skilled educate trained soldiers would not only be wise
