The following written report of the Grand Jury was returned to the Judge of the Adair Circuit Court at the close of the present term From this report it seems that many witoefses who thought they were pulling the wool over the eye of the Grand Jury have teen badly fouled in their ability te deceive said body To the Bon W W Jones Judge of the 29th Judicial District State of Kentucky Sir The Grand Jury em paneled sworn and charged by you on the first day of the present term of Court unite in this address to your Honor to show you some of the diffi culties that we have labored under in trying to enforce the law and bring lawbreakers to justice No man can seryeone term on thegraud jury in this county and we suppose it is largely the same in all counties without to a large degree losing confidence in hu inanity Men who are ordinarily honest and whose word is always consider ed perfectly reliable when brought be fore the Grand Jury seem to feel thai they have a special license to prevari cate forget and even lie in order to keep back and hide some little viola tion of the law They seem to think that in testifying before the Grand Ju ry that it makes not a particle of dif ference whether they speak the truth or a lie but rather prefer a lie if it will tend to shield some one even a negro who has been kind enough to furnish them with whisky in violation of law Then we were made sorry by seeing little boys boys of good honest religious parents testifying that they had been given whisky by some body they had never teen before did not ally know whether he was white o black that somebody took one small boy who lives six miles away from the public square one night when the bo was visiting in town carried him up to the Male and Female High School gave him to drinks of whisky came back with him to town without the boy having the least idea on earth who his kind friend was or why he had taken sucn an interest in him Such cases as this were not infrequent if we could by any possibility be made to lIeve that these boys were telling the truth Then there were some boys brought before the Grand Jury who had during the last twelve months at boyrwere peculiar in that they could remember nothing that had happened during the year up to the day of majority and whose minds and memory 1were perfectly clear afterwards The would recollect having had whisky given to them after they were twenty one years old but whose minds were perfectly dark and blank before that time This is a phenomenon in the science of the mind which we will n ut undertake to explain Then there another class that can remember with distinctness every thing that tins happened in their lives up to twelvemonths ago but wno can remember nothing that has happened since that time Then the preachers are not together blameless in matters concern ins alstu ljiiiiceb iu cuuicn They w swirl complain uud rebuke the ones who are raising disturbances in the congregations nod when brought be fore the Grand Jury to testify ab it they will ask to be excused on ac count of their position in the comma nity Our town is in a deplorable condition so we all believe bnt it has been im possible to find testimony sufficient to indict any body for selling whisky A great many jugs of whisky have be shipped in here from Lebanon and dis posed of without so far as we have been able to find any having been sold Colored men and white menhave be dispensing whisky during the last twelve months but nobody prpven to be guilty V would recommend that the good citizens of the town unite in toan effort to break it up The sheriffs Lave had a great deal of bard and thankless work to do for which they hare got complained but sill the law abiding people wr rf ir j in wilu In ntssting thtni in this lnaterI- L d r llihr LtJlr Uurhuh vcrp much lighter For icsanco tbylmvc had to so to the uttcrnrstparts of the couijij tt suuuiiotjS witnesses to appear before the Grand Jury and for the roust Iris al excuses or indeed not x ruse at all they would rotobij the summons and liars to have attachment sent for them thus doubling the burdens of the sheriffs We thluk that It an example could be mand of a few of these delinquents and given a heavy line it would have a wholesome effect on all concerned In one part of our county it was de velopedthat only a wharf time ago there passed through a traveling sulooa on wheels disguised as showmen Iligged up lu splendor with a whole barrel of whiskey on board Nobody it seems knew the names of these parties but a great many in some mysterious way fouud they had whiskey to sell and gave them a liberal patronage without even undertaking to find out the names of the parties or even care whether they had any names at all We were somewhat gratified to know by the testimony of many witnesses that our county in inprais has very greatly improved within the last twelve months That while there have been many cases of drunkeness and many perambulating saloons and many immoralities of all kinds they all subsided at least a year ago and since that time very little of any thing of the kind has taken place The Grand Jury by your direction visited and examined the county jail and it is gratifying to report that we found every thing in good order The prisoners seemed to be well cared for and all the premises were clean Theonly way that we can see to remedy the defects that we have been mcntionln jn this addrass is for all the good people of the county to unite in a resolution to watch and make memorandum of all the lawlessness that they see during the next four months and come before the Grand Jury at the next term of this Court and testify a to what they have seen and heard rRespectfully submitted MELVIX CAVE Foreman 9ABRIGHT FUTURE The future of the country paper seems bright With the Improved facilities we already have and those that are sure to come we have no fear in our particular field Some express fear of the rural free delivery and the competition of the city daily We have none because if we cultivate our own local field they in no sense are in competition with us Hustle the locals No event is so small but that some are interested in it Cultivate the country correspondent and use Ysliberally the telephone and rural mall route in gathering the news Every township and neighborhood should furnish its quota of local news While we do not wish to discourage the Kea eial editorial and political departmen of the country paper the local department is the one that the people look for and is the one that builds up your subscription list assures advertlsiug and other business Get all the news and state it neatly correctly and truth isfully without fear or favor Do not kick every stone you find in your path Put your conscience in your work and you can stand up and look every man in the aye The fortune you build may grow slowly but it will be a structure that wl1fstaud tike the bills Keep in touch with your people stick rllby

through the textbooks of long agOLlt Is here that I meet the man who in days gone by was the rude town lad or the naJghty country boy I being the latter and between whom incessant warefare existed and many hair pulling battles were fought but the conflicts incident to early life have passed and today we meet as men as true and steadfast friends and find much pleasure In the rehearsal of the conflicts when flax breeches and home spun jeans covered the country lad It is a pleasure to go over the old dim culties of childhood to visit the fields and plats of ground where many drops of perspiration were shed and energy and industry fostered and matured Yesterday was spent In visiting in the old neighborhood and calling to mind the characters who once figured in the affairs of this section some of whom have gone to other lands some remain here and many have passed over the river to their eternal destiny A visit to the old home brings sad as well as pleasant recollections but we are doubtless made wiser and better by the conIstantmany of us take but little notice when in pursuit of business My short stop here at my old home forcibly impresses me of the importance and real enjoyment that would result from the reunion heretofore mentioned in the News and I trust that the people of noat be indifferent to the importance of such a gathering the returning of their kin and friends from the many sections of country I find the spirit of improvement abroad in this section Some elegant dwellings have been erected in this town and vicinity since my stopover one year ago Interest in educational matters is booming and the people of Jonesvllle are spending several thousand dollars on the college here Two large three story buildings containing 48 neat rooms are now un der course of construction which will be used by the students The Baptist people are building a college at Pen nington Gap a railroad town nine miles from here They will spend from seven to ten thousand dollars this year and should the school demand larger buildings the same will be larged The citizens of Jonesville are making preparations for a great celebration and reunion of the old Confed crates on the third and fourth of Pennington Gap will likewise celebra the Glorious 4th and Big Stone Gap is booked for the biggest celebration of that memorable event These celebrations are no new things in the Old Dominion neither are they uncertain The 4th must be celebrated each year and the orators on these occasions re view Colonial history and point to the great achievements of those perilous times Some several years ago Gov J R IliLdman remarked to me that Vir ginians lived on shad and memory This however is not the exclusive diet trot the love Virginians have for liar nutile

development of a womans life Her ideal usually is I a tall man with classical features and the frame of Achilles He must be brave yet gentle a Chesterfield in manners a Dewey in penetration a Winston Churchill in ambition In thought and speech he must be as un sullied as Schiller or Goethe withal he must be strong and bravea lion among men a knight among ladies But for fear she might die an old maid she will take most any lath framed youth with numsecolored hair and batwinged ears that comes along a colll in nail cigarette that smells worse than a burning rubber boot and thus waste her precious life trying to love one she never admired Never let a quarrel stand over a suuset It is intensely difficult to pick it up at the stoppage point next day aud in the meantime it may have changed its character and be troublesome to handle Should however any difference assume the ugly and gigantic proportions eta serious affair the originator of the quarrel should reflect upon the

music went largely out of date in the four campaigns following that of 1840 but its use was revived in the campaign of 1860 and it undoubtedly added to the enthusiasm which spread throughout the North and help ed to elect Abraham Lincoln Since then music has again gradually fallen into disuse and while campaign song books have been employed and circu lated singing has figured less and less conspicuously The only recent in Instance in which it had a marked effect In an election was a campaign in Tennessee when Robert L Taylor undoubtedly aided himself in his canvass for Governor by carrying hiz fiddle to his meeting and entertaining his audiences with renderings of pop ular tunes Mr Taylor became known as the fiddling Governor but he must have had other qualities to recommend him to popular favor as h6 was twice elected to the office Philadelphia Press is in error here The cam paign of 1886 was the War of Roses in whichBob and Alt Taylor brothers figured as rival candidates for Governor and Bob refused to bring his fiddle Into play Several years previous to that ex Governor Taylor defeated Congress man Pettibone who was a classical scholar and one of the ablest Republi camIcarried bis fiddle and its music in connection with the ridicule stories and humor was too much for Pettibone whose 5000 Eepubllcn majority melted away before the in fluence brought to bear in the cam paign Pettibone was a Carpetbag ger and on one occasion he derided his competitor as a mere fidaler who was trying to break into Congress The next day Bob brought his fiddle and a carpetbag and arrayed them on the platform arid asked the audience which they would follow The crowd saw the point and applauded At night Bcb attended try dances andfurnished the music for the daur orJiwrsaod he charmed them with suce practical productions as Molly Hare1 Mol Put the Kettle On Rare Back Davy etc and as a result the Republicans that East Tennessee district deserted Pittibone and voted for his competitor electing him by over athousaud majority Pettibunes rhetoric and pedanty were not vote catchers like Bobs fiddle and his eloquence At one appointment Bob had wrought the crowd to a high pitch of merriment and enthusiasm by one of his incomparable anecdotes arid its mimicry and when Pettibone arose to renly he said to thee large crowd I will not attempt to excite your rtsi
