attached TO J W RatsliffG LEXINGTON KENTUCKY eTO THE PUBLIC Permit me to say a few words to you on the subject of penmanship No accomplishment is more highly prized few more useful and none more rare than an elegant handwriting It seems strange that this branch of education is so much neglected especially in this day of the world when the facilities for acquiring the art are so superior to what they once were Yet in tho last few years penmanship has taken immense strides in the advance in this country The young are now evincing more interest on the subject than ever before The Business Colleges have done more to educate the public mind and create an interest in this branch of education than any other class of schools They employ the best of penman to be had and penman ship is being taught by the most improved methods while in most other schools inferior teachers are employed if writing is taught a all Yet many of the young men and women cannot attend a Busi ness College fofsuch instructions even the most moderate in their charges The time and means of many of them are limited and they cannot afford the expense So you see you have the Writing department of the Business College brought right to you Need I offe more to any young man or woman who wishes to improve their pen manship having had thirtysix years experience teaching the art Give me a trial is all I ask of you PAY DAYIS COMING repitomethe country New Jersey is the breeding ground nothIIingA few days ago Governor Murpby the chief executive of New Jersey issued his annual proclamation dis solving the

there arc now seven and not one of these has been able to see over the top of his desk for a year by reason of this enor mous increase of receivership business Many of these companies after floating millions of dollars worth of stock have shown up ia their receivership affidavits only a few hundred dollars in the country concerns such as these are deluging the mails with literature and relieving

particular success to traction gines and with their equipment of feet these engines are quite Independ ent of roads They can cross ditches if not too deep or steep walk over plowed fields or rough

COMMISSIONER llOXCCMcOHORD The muddle in the Democratic party in Louisville is causing much unpleasant comment throughout tho State Mr YoungI tho Chairman of the State Central and Executive Committees is be ing severely denounced by Demo crats and Democratic papers throughout tho State headed by the CourierJournal and Times AVo are not in position to know who is right or wrong but satisfied that it is a question with two sides In our judgment the Com mitteo did wrong in attempting to call off the primary and that the other side is doing wrong in its se vere charges against Mr Young As we see it Mr Young is not the whole thing and it should be re membered that a majority of the committee issued the call that the primary should be postponed Evidently it is a fight between the friends and adherents of the Cou rierJournalcrowd and the Whal lan followers for supremacy in Louisville It is immaterial with Democrats outside of Louisville who rules or ruins in thatjcity but we have an interest in the State ticket which ought to be paramount in every section to lo cal affairs It is unfortunate for tho party that factions in Louisville are waring when Stato inter I eats are at stake Tho resolutions indorsing Youngs action wareof fered by Mr Meacham and upon fciking the vote the Committee men present stood 5 to 8 one of the five ofaMr Young It was a very slim indorsement and in the meantime the Democratic papers over the Stato continue to denounce the Chairman for calling off the global primary in Louisville It is a bad mess it brings uoencourage inent to Democrats outside the factions and the sooner it can be adjusted the better At any rate after Mr Young has been vindicated or condemned bya fair hearing of such methods and 7andmeanB neceseary tosettlethe troubled

in a race of such importance What think yo gentlemen of Kentucky when a man the meas ure of Congressman Bo re ing through his attorneys refused to have his case tried before Judge W B Smith because ne is a Dem ocrat and a member of the Christ ian Church This occurred at London last week in the case of Mrs Sarah Boreing against Vin cent Boreing The Judge declined to serve and Governor Beckham appointed Mr Virgil Smith o Somerset to try the case The last named gentleman IB a Demo crat as we understand but it is possible that he is not a member of the Christian Church It is bad enough to

most the entire country being in wheat Our train pulled into the magnificent union depot of St Louis at 720 a m It is a grand structure in deed and for conven fence and capacity to accommo date surpasses any thing I had ever seen Leaving St Louis at 020a m we had a very pleasant trip up the Missouri river to Jefferson City over the Missouri Pacific Here we made a very short stop and ar rived at Lamonte Mo about 3 p m where we were greeted by quite- a number of Missouri friends who awaited our arrival Lamonte is situated 200 miles West from St Louis on the Missouri Pacific in a beautiful

as eight two horso cultivators running in one field and frequently saw 4 to 6 I was told this land was worth twoI hundred dollars per acre From Topeka to Augusta is mostly upland prairie better adapted to grazing than cultiva tion though there are quite a number of fertile valleys In passing through this section we saw a great many cattle grazing some of which being so far away looked very
