We have been blessed with such a good rain that pur countenances have a almost peaceful look and we will no longer be compelled to gaze on the water tanks passing incessantly Nearly every well of good standingIn town or county have failed to supply the need The sole dependence has been on the artesian well Water is bought by the tank which holds fourteen bar rels 8150 per tank Those who have been accustomed to the inexhaustible supply of old Kentpcky makes it rath er difficult to limit themselves as well as straining their nervous faculties somewhat to pay out the money But the most noble move of our town was the abolition of whisky in the face of rich mens money and seventeen open saloons in this place excluding the number of saloons in other towns of the county the right came on top but with the able speakers we now have and the progress Prohibition is making all over the Union we couldnt expect less than victory With the ad dition of this we now have fiftyone Prohibition counties in

one occasion during a very stormy campaign meeting Populists in the audience were asking a good many questions Gov Shaw answered patiently and bided his time A man well kuown in front insisted on asking a question every five minutes on an erage He usually prefaced them by such remarks as Just a minute please or Let me interrupt for a minute In a happy moment lie broke in with Pardon me hut Before he could finish tbe Governor a rather selfsatisfied look spreading over his face replied Well Ive pardoned lots worse fellows than vou in my time and I suppose it would be unjust to draw the line here A Murderous Gang Beaumont Tex March 15 Mattle Bennett confessed to Sheriff Lindley that she was at the head of a gang of negro women and white men who had for months been luring men into her house drugging them beating them and robbing them If they were only stunned they were taken out of the bouse to a remote part of the street and left for some pedestrian or police man to find A fear is felt that more than 12 men among those who have come to Beau mont and were afterward reported as missing have been murdered and that their bodies are now at the bottom of the river In the last three months at least 50 inquiries for miss Jug men have been received and while no one supposes that the gang has murdered so many as 50 there Is a fear that some of the disappearances are due to their work Five bodies have been found in tbe river since the first of the year The Bennett woman was arrested Sunday on suspicion of being connected with the murder of Benjamin Pearson one of the five known victims She denies being guilty of this crime but admits that one of the gang of which she is a member discussed the committing of the deed On the strength of her confession a white man Punch Prime and a negro woman Mary Jane have been arrested All of them have been sweated and Sheriff Undley states that he expects a full confession not ouly of the murder of Pearson but of others Blind Tiger in a Hock Inez Ky March 12It is now no louger a mystery as to where the stone is that the builders rejected Near this place by the side of the public pike is a large stone which all the land owners refuse to claim because of the fact that it is accused of selling li quor contraryto tbe law Hiram Luster procured a license from the Government to sell liquor a place covering the territory where this stone is located Be has been tried five times for violating the local option law invariably being acquitted The court finally ordered a warrant for the person upon whose land the rock was situated and summoned iu all the citizens but signally failed to find an owner for the land Thus the court is now in a quandary as to what plan to fall on to break up the alleged traffic The rock is known as tale Big- Niggerbecause of Its color Persons wanting liquor go to the rock and ask in a loud voice if the nigger has any liquor They then retire for a little while leaving the money on the rock They return and find the liquor but the money is gone This rock has been making the night hideous with demon iacal yells tot ten months and yet it is Impossible to find any one who has sold IfqdrIn Itttiviitiityl t War Stories During the Civil War a number of soldiers met death by accident and from mistakes made by men of their own companies Many instances oc curred in the Orphan Brigade one of which befell a Nelson county man Mr Henry S Harned who came near being shot by his friend Wm S B Hill of Boston The story of the oc currence Is as follows When the Confederates were at Kenesaw on June 20tn 1864 an order was sent at midnight to withdraw the detail from the skirmish pits retaken by them under Ma j Rogers The men of the Sixth Kentucky did not receive it and were left until their absence was reported at headquarters and Capt Buchanan sent specially to them Among them were Lieut Fran Huro ed Win ti B mil Milton B Stotts and II S Harned There was cuuMd irable distance between them Hill on the extreme left and Henry Harned on the right Harned got warning first and started to creep along the line to notify the others As the enemy was known to be near and even a slight noise or the apeearance of a moving object was likely to bring a shot he was keeping close to the ground and moving cautiously along tbe front of the line when Hill who had heard nothing perceived what he took to be a Federal picket at the distance of about twenty yards creeping upon him Bringing his rifile to bear upon him he cocked it Harned fortunately was near enough to hear the click and alizing his danger spoke his name Recognizing the voice of a comrade to whom he was more than ordinary attach d and realizing that but for the timely warning he would have shothim to death Hill was seized with such a tremor that he dropped his gun and was for a moment dizzy and sick Rav- Ing thus escaped death for the one and distraction fur the other they now made their way back to the main lines While many sad things occurred to dampen the soldiers ardor many amus ing ones occurred to enliven them and when opportunity offered the members of the Brigadewere nut slow to grasp it Sergt Jasper Anderson who was a native of Nelson and who a member of Company B Ninth Kentucky and known to almost every one as Jap had the distinction among others of being the only webfoot who ever beat a Morgan man when property rights were to be considered He was accused by some of those rough riders of having stolen some of their mules and they said that a man who could steal a mule from them made a record After Morgan and Hunt Lad cow pelled the Federal outpost at Harts yule to surrender and the Confeder ates were hastily gathering up arms and other property with which the encampment abounded preparatory to successful and hasty retreat which fol lowed Jap found a red mule with a blind bridle on roaming around and took possession of him He seemed to have a quick eye for the supply and medical departments as being most promising and soon had the mule load ed with a dozen United States blank eta and about thirty pounds of coffee and a dozen canteens of apple brandy Having mounted and bet out for the ferry he was halted by a calvarymau who demanded the mule under order or General that all infantry wen should be promptly dismounted Anderson replied that the mule be lunged to headquarters and that they would have to go to Capt Morehead their in command of the Ninth Rtgl went to see what he had to say about it When Morehead was found he said that Gen Morgan had ordered all animals to be given up and that he would have to comply But said Jap cant do that Captain I have a valuable cargo here and t cant carry it myself What have you Well these blankets as you see and a big lot of coffee and some in the can teens Try a canteen The Captain took a taste and qew light shown in his faces I Why Jap this is good apple brandy Then he took another pull or two and wound up witti Jap you keep that mule and stay along with headquarters Shoot the first calvaryman that tries to take him away from you And to the man wh Was waiting to dismount Anderson h said You tell John Morgan that this is my mule he cant have him The provident and persuasive web tout Mid afterward that tircftfe the mule right along in front like a staff officer slept at headquarters that night and rode him to Murfreesboro next day and at last turned him loose when he had nothing for him to car ryKentucky Standard Fiddled Over The Country Less Wagner who won the 810 in iould at the Old Fiddlers Contest

atlckett They did so and m a month he showed up currying the same fiddle he took away with him During his absence he had fiddled in many of the mining cswps of the West One day while playing The Last Rose of Summer on a street Trindad Col a miner came up and addressing him as pard asked him to accompany him to his camp 100 miles away as he wanted his three partners to hear him Two days later the printer and miner enter ed the hut in the mountains Two days after this a snow storm set in and the printer remained with the prs pectors until the spring thaw The miners oQIered the printer an equal snare in their claims if he would re main He declined and they gave him 8500 in gold dust on his departure It lasted him just three days In Denver A year later the miners sold their claims for 31500000 One day while this printer minstrel was playing Howe Sweet Home in front of a hotel in Brunswick Mo the strains of the beautiful melody reached the ear of a Mrs Kyrkendall who had heard him play in Harrodsburg years before She remarked that the musi cian must be a boy she had known In Kentucky for he was the only one who could get such music as that out of a violen She sent for the musician who proved to be the peripatetic printer At another time an agedladylay dying near Columbia Mo Her repeated re quest was that she might hear Wagner play the Sweet ByeandBye before she passed away He was down in Texas county 100 miles distant He was sent for and stood beside the bed aud played it for her At its con clusion some one spoke to the old lady and then it was found that while the beautiful strains were filling the room her spirit had taken its flight to a Laud That is Fairer Than This He is Legally Dead St Paul Minn March I5Jlm Younger wants to get married He can not because

Treasurer subject the action of the Democratic party The Blind Tiger may be able to feel the effects of recent legislation even if it can not see the justness of the progress In the contest for the offices of of Wayne county Judge T Z Morrow the Republican Circuit Judge decided in favor of the Democrats tSince the bill reducing gambling from a felony to a misdemeanor failed to become a law it would be proper for some of the Republican papers to retract their harsh statements made against the Legisla tive body of this state The record in the case of Calel Powers against the Common wealth on an appeal was filed in office of the Clerk of the Court of Appeals last Thursday The case willnot be taken up at this term but will be given an early consid ation at the term beginning in April The record contains 1500 typewritten pages I The indictment against Charles E Sapp Joseph Petoning and Lenonard Parsons charging them with violating the civil service laws it is claimed that they col lected 42500 from the revenue men of the Fifth Kentucky dis trict for election purposes The penalty is a fine and imprison ment When former United States Sen ator James G Fair of California died he left his large estate in trust The case went to the Su preme Court and last Thursday that tribunal decided that the trust clause was invalid The large estate of 20000000 will now be divided among the children of the deceased Under the head of announce ments it will be seen that Mr H H Henninger Wayne county is a candidate for the office of State Treasurer subject to the action of the Democratic party Mr Hen neger has served the people of Wayne as sheriff making an accu rate an efficient officer He is a man for whom every body has the utmost confidence in his integrity and being popular throughout this Tbstion of the State will make a strong Tace for the positionhe seeks He has voted for and ad vocated Democratic principles since he reached his majority We are still in the Eleventh surrounded by the same environments in every department as we have been for several years und while this is not to the liking of Democrats of this county yet our zeal for Democracy oursupp rfthe party will be as hearty ac vig orous and as determined as if had been picked up aud transplan ted into the heart of the Firsta district whose banner waves tver large majorities in every engagement We can not elect a Demo cratic official in any district in which we are placed but regardless of the incentive of office our mot to is a fight to the finish beliv- ing that ultimately a change will be made and our principles tri umpb Democrats pf this section r are asltrueas any in the world They are Democrats from prioci T pIe and while we can not rejoice in the selecting of the officials of trar thatJbut lot is cast in a Democratic State and we firmly believe in a Democratic Nation r The Somerset Journal of last pPPk containing the announce ment of Mr H H Henninger of Wayne county as a candidate for State Treasurer in on our table and the able editor of that publi cation shows signs of elation over the fact that his paper was the selectedorgan to break this good news to the Democrats of the hills True it appeared first in the Jour nal on the 21st but we received the authority to make the an nouncement in the News in our is sue of the 19th but it was about one hour late and therefore was carried over We can not tell whether it was intended for us to be on deck first or not We have no reason to believe that the News is regarded as a pet by any people party or locality but ample evidence exists to show that it enjoys a reputation of a straight Demo cratic paper and always ready for the fight Our acquaintance withI Mr Henninger is limited but suf ficent to warrant the mention made in another column aud should he receive the nomination no paper in this State willout rank the News it its zeal for the aforesaid gentleman We will for harmony concede that thej Journal was the selected organ to first tell the tale but still itseems to us that it barely escaped being an accidental matter This suspicion may not be well founded but the date of our telegram looks a little strange if the Journal was the elected and selected organ for this announcement Congressman Crumpaoker seeks to have Congress to pry into the affairs of the political conditions of some of the Southern States and if possible reduce their repre sontatlOn in the National Legisla ture After many years of bitter ness when sectional feeling seems to be almost gone in the midst of prosperity and the merging in of a new era as it seems to be in the Sooth this partisan coming fromJ another section seeks to revive the feeling that followed in the pathI of carpetbagism to wave the bloody shirt over free and loyal States besmirch their political life and cripple their industrial advancement He makes grave charges against some of the States that lie south of the Mason and Dixon line but fails to touch any of the States in which his politi cal party sways the scepter of power though some of them have such restrictions as really disfran chisel a large number of voters In searching for a State that dis franchises that places unjust re strictions over the ballot that al lows corporate power to coerce he could find all this on the north side of the line Some of theI Southern States have placed such restrictions around the ballot as will enable the white element to control while some Northern States have such requirements asI enables a part of the white ele ment to dictate The white man of the South rules while machine made politicians and corporate power hold the reins of government in the New England States The Crumpaoker game should cov er all the affected districts in its search if it seeks to purify but it is not intended for that purpose Now is the time for Democrats to stand together and fight the com mon enemy The Legislature adjourned sine die on the 18th and all its members are now with their constituents some rejoicing and some possibly not so happy as a good brother in a campmeeting Some of their bills went through some fell through but a large majority died on the table Some good work was done some good laws enacted but several measures of worth and importance failed The ft veuu but passed at the last moment but it does not carry a Cupto appropriation clause The appropriation to the Worlds Fair to bu held at St Louis was defeated and the schoolbook bill meta biuiilar fate The Redistricting bill failed leaving the districts as they have been for several years past While we desired more results and confidently expected the same yet we are not ready or wil ling to speak dispargingly of the body for it has accomplished good and doubtless anted with honest discretion To our mind the schoolbook bill was too im portant to have met such a fate asC well as the appropriation to the Worlds Fair The Legislature met acted several times but failed to =rediitrict the 8s tL The State school of Reform building was burned at Lexington last week It cost 27000 and was set afire by some otthe boy in mates believing that they could
