were btatinncd on the Ilarrodiburk road within easy supporting distance but did not redo h tbe town until Hansons regiment fighting gallantly against vastly superior numbers was overpowered and obliged to surrender Morgan moved towards Bardstown reaching tbat placeat4 oclock on the morning of the Gth of July Morgans loss was inconsiderable 8 killed and 23 wounded Among the former were Lieut Thos Morgan a brother of the general and Lieut Gardner From Bardstown Morgan moved in the direction of the Ohio River cap turing a railroad train within thirty miles of Louisville and crossing the bridge over Salt river on the morning of the 7th To aid in mystifying his pursuers Morgan detached live companies to move in different directions through tbe State thus for the time throwing Gens Hobson and Judah the track of tbe main body Shortly after midnight the column advanced and at 10 a m reached Brandenburg on the Ohio River forty miles below Louisville where two steamboats captured by Capts Tay lor and Merriwether were awaiting the arrival of the division The Second Kentucky and Ninth Tennessee were immediately set across the river leaving their horses behind them and forming under the river bank prepar ed to protect the crossing of the re mainder of the command While in this position a little gun boat made its unwelcome appearance and for a short time threatened to put a stop to the performance but a few shots from the parrotts convinced the commander that close quarters were not desirable and he steamed away up the river for assistance Be fore it was obtained Morgan was on the Indiana shore mounting for a ride of miles through a hostile country thickly settled and penitratcd ia every direction by railroads and tele graphs The route previously sketch ed by Morgan and which was followed eastwarI d through southern Indiana from Cory Parisf0Vernon Dapont Summlnsville to Harrison Ohio Morgan reasoned that the boldness of his movement would convince Gen Burnside that his objective point was either Cincin nati or Columbus and that smaller towns would be furnished for troops to strengthen the garrisons of these important points He felt confident of keeping in ad vance of the cavalry in his rear as being in advance gave him choice of the horses of the country through which he passed To throw the partment commander off the track be here again resorted to the tactics tha t had proved successful in Kentucky He sent detachments off in several directions and after a few hours halt at Harrison moved in the direction of Cincinnati My company had forgotten their rashions on leaving the wagon train and we stopped at a respectable farmhouse and got dinner That evening about 3 oclock there came from the west one of the hardest rain and win storms I ever experiencd Turning to the left Morgan passed north of Cincinnati near Glendale colatyinn railroad A edit was made near Camp Dennison to feed tbe horses and bum about sixty or seventy Government wagons When we were again in our saddles and did not draw rein until we reached Williamsburg nine miles from Sumansville having made the march in tbirtyhve hours Here at 4 pm the division wont into camp and re rnaiued through the night Resuming tbe march next morning they halted again at Wilksville and remained until 3 oclock next morning when moving out of camp we found ourselves sur rounded on all sides by militia who although decliolog close quarters in Jllcicd considerable injury with thcii jtrusty rifles at a safe distance amonj the hillst o oooooeo oaeo oooeeoeoo o At oclock oa the 18th the corn maud reached Lester and halted enable o the column to close up ThIS halt proved d isastrous as BuffingtOD the point chosen to cress the Ohio was not reached until after nightfall and it was decided to walt until new morning An earthwork had been thrown up to guard the ford and Mar gan was informed that It was manned by 30o men While Morgan had by rapid marching traversed the state of Ohio doing little damage to persons or property Gen Hobson at the head of a picked cavalry force lead reache- the Ohio at Brandenburg shortly after Morgan had crossed It and pushing o in his rear reached Chester afew hours after Morgan had left It for Buffing ton Gen Judah left the stern chase at Bardstown and proceeding to Cincinnati embarking a brigade a brigade of infantry on transports and steamed up the river to be ready to intercept Morgans crossing where ever he might attempt it On the following morning these two commands each ignorant of the proximity of the other prepared for an attack upon Morgans division now considerably reduced by hunger and exhaustion Col Duke was ordered to draw up two of his regiments In readiness to attack the work at dawn of day and the parrotts were placed In position to assist the storming party if necessary Had Morgans pickets been more vigilant they would have discovered long before daylight that the marks were empty It was evacu ated during the night The knowl edge of this would have been of priceless advantage but it came too late The crossing came near being success fully accomplished however When morning dawned Duke charged upon the empty works then starting out the Pomeroy road in search of the retreat- Ing garrison He ran into Judahs advance guard and attacking with spirit threw it into confusion capturing one cannon and forty or fifty prisoners and mortally wounding Maj Daniel McCook By Morgans order Duke formed two regiments across the road upon which Judah was advancing while Johnson with two regiments faced toward Hobson who was moving upon hi from the north Gen Shackleford moved up the river with his force to cut off escape in that direction We were now surrounded by about 20000 men Notwithstanding the great disparity in forces Duke and Johnson managed to hold Judah and Hobson in check long enough to enable Morgan with the four disengaged regiments to march out of the valley Duke and Johnson then determined to withdraw and follow their leader The men who had been fighting on foot re mounted without confusion and treated in column of fours from right of companies and for some distance in good order but there being but two roads by which to escape the men rushed for them Cols Duke and Smith and some fifty officers and m were here captured but I was not cap berline for the Southern Confederacy and wdthrough Kentucky to Sparty Tennes see Morgan sent in a flag of truce asking terms of surrender ford gave them brleflyJoimediate and unconditional surrender- m CONTINUED PROMINENT

Time the Writer Takes up Elkhtrt Ito Citizens and the Surroudiny Country EDITOR or NEWS In my last letter I told you my nextwould be from Elkhart I now wish to redeem that promise Elkhart is a city of record breaker Old man Gillette came to this town many years ago a poor boy atd commenced business as a day laborer Whon ho would got hold of a little money he would in vest it in land which was exeed ingly cheap When he could bor row money he would buy more land thou he would buy cattle to tvthe time of his death only a few years ago he owned practically all the land for miles around Elkhart which increased in value until it was worth one hundred dollars per acre It is as fine a body of land Gildlette as they called him was a ofncattle Instead of having cattle upon a thousand hills ho had thousands of cattle on the plains round about himiAnother record breaker was Col Bogardus the world renowned rifle shootest He sprang from Elk hart Elkhart has the distinguished honor of being a finished town It has about 400 or 500 inhabitants and cant grow any larger because the land around it is so high that nobody can afford to build new houses and the people aro so busy doing something else that they dont have time to build Your readers know as much about the fame of Bogardus as I do and I shall not undertake to repeat it Gillette only broke the record inland and cattle Bogardus only in shooting but I had the pleasure of meeting a man who smashes records in every thing I did not have to depend upon history or tradition but J met the man face to face heard from his own lips his wonderful performances Dr 3chulttTvho is a man of great co- nversional powers I talked him enly two or three hours I he had had more time I have no doubt he would have told me man more wonderful things He is th e greatest corn husker in the universe On a thousand dollar wager he succeeded in husking twenty bushels to the hour during one whole day As a bicycle rider he breaks the record Ho started traveledmthrough Missouri and into Arkan sas a distance of ono hundred and ninetyseven miles crossing the Missouri and several smaller riv ere all in ten hours As a feeder of threshing machines he takes the cake Ho feda machine that threshed seven hundred and nine tp six bushels of oats in one hour He drove a pair of bay stallions one of his own raising to a com mon heavy road wagon in a trot one mile in 210 He killed forty fine prairie chickens at ono shot his gun being loaded with pop corn In his own barn the day hewas talking to me he killed nine rats at one shot with a rifle But perhaps the biggest anniu enhe ever did was when he killed 875 turkeys strung in a straight row at one shot with his trusty Win Chester As an ordinary traveler hapas kept an accurate account of his tramps from his birth to the 201 h 1of May 1908 and it amounts 8 6850 miles and as he is only 30 years old would make 25 miles a day for his life But the doctor does not confine himself to lint but occasionally makes an aerial voyage A few years ago at t Arkansas State Fair neat Little Rook he with a companion were given two hundred dollars each to make a balloon ascension TLe went up tcfa considerable hsloo b and when they undertook to op the valve to let out tho gas in o der to come down the cord broke and the balloon was caught in a stiff southern breeze and carri over into Texas They would have been carried over the Gulf of Mexico had not tho denier with g teat Presouee of mind climbed orsup the balloon tied tho broken oordj putthe valve to work and started the huge mo sttr to de scending It lodged in the top o f white tk tree on the gulf ashore saving them from an tin timely death fit the end of ono thousand miles During the administrations of Cleveland and Harrison eight years he belonged to the United States Secret Detective Service and in one year he captured unaided fortyfive horse thieves He was chased one dark night by a pack of hungry wolves When he could no longer keep out of the way he took a position against a cliff where the wolves could approach only in one direc tion and there his trusty Winches tor again served him well As the would approach he would shoot them down Others would climb over dead bodies until they were piled up over him At last they were all killed and himself completely buried beneath them He worked his way out made his escape and going bank next day found sixty dead wolves The doctor is not only a medical man but a horse doctor as well the best he says in the State of Illi nois He is an expert in equine obstetrics and the horse doctors n Chicago and other large cities give him all their consultation cases He is also a doctor of law and has spent ten years of his young manhood in that profession He told me he had never devoted himself to tho ministry but should he fail at any of these other pro fessions I have no doubt he could make a success at it Now some of these stories sound a little unreasonable but the doc tor can prove by twenty of the best men in Elkhart that he has told the same stories frequently before and not only so but tells them very much the same forgot in its proper place to tell o his having killed ten panthers one day They were very large and malicious and bent on destruction His trusty rifle dispatched them in short order and left him malice- of the situation- U L TAYLOR COMMITTED SUICIDE aChatiefd by taking coraosive sublimate Young companywith a number of young men of his own age called on several young lad friends At 11 oclock they were at the L N depot where they waited until a late train came in While at the depot Saufley confided to one of his friends that he was going to com mit suicide He delivered to this friend a letter with the instructions to give it to his mothe after his death The friend thought Suiley was jestin and paid no attention to him at the time He was not noticed when the crowd went home and at twp oolock on Sunday morning he was found writhing in pain by a railroad hand the poison having already taken effect He was immediately conveyed to a pbysiclane oflice but all effrorts to save him were unavailing and he died at 7 oclock in the evening jo motive is known for the act Saufley was popular and belonged to one of the most widely known fami lies in the State His brother Shel thegwas formerly principal of the Stanford Academy

Agriculture HUBERT VREELAND For Clerk of Court of Appeals MORGAN CHINN FOR RAILROAD COMMISSIONER HON 0 0 McOHORD The President has again demon strated his desire to pander to the colored race This time however it is not the giving of office or the taking of tea but the avowed intention of showing his displeasure iu not having the negro children of Washington to participate with the 500 poor white children of that city who were to picnic on the lawns of the White House given by the good people of that city Mrs Smith President of the Womens Rescue League had the consent of the President to use the lawns for that purpose but when a protest was made by a negro that the picnic was exclu sively for the whites and that his race was being discriminated against the President immediately revoked his order to allow the picnic to proceed on the grounds It is a burning shame that the President of our nation will per sist in placing the two races on social equality It is not for the good of either race and the peo pIe of this country will never sub mit to it There are many rea sons why the negroes should be for Roosevelt but we can not see any reason to justify a selfrespect ing white man There is some talk about the Democratic party being without a platform in the State race The party has at no time since the days of Thomas Jefferson been without h a platform The principles are just the same to day and will be enunciated until the end of time Beckham is making his race upon the principles taught him by his father They never die men sometimes do and are handed from generation to generation We have heard of many nonsensical request but when Caleb Powers attorneys asked the trial Judge to instuct the sheriff to summon men equally divided politically for jurors the cake was

in a politi cal speech he was led to say that Grover Cleveland was a pot dd son of a or words to that effect Will not this unex pected piece of information so forciably set forth before his as tonished hearers have its influence in giving him the nomination Let Mr Noe look to his laurels It is said that Mr H C Wood of this place and Hon J T Wade former Representative have aspirations for the Legisla tive honors and may go before the Taylor and Green county conven tics as candidates Both have friends who will urge their nomi nation It is thought however that Green county wiJl claim the nomination as the last Represent countyinhas been the rule to rotate between the two countier term and term about How tne cat will ulter mately jump is a matter of con jecture Subsequent proceedings will alone unravel the tangled web I forgot to mention in theright place that ExRepresentative Squire Jos Pruett will also go be fore the Republican convention as a Candida te for the lower branch of the Legislature if reports are correct He is a stalwart republican The eargerness of the numerous rotate and locas aspirants for the various offices indicate that they are sanguine that the State will go Republican t the coming election in November But the nnterrifi ed democracy are equally as sang line of success and that the republican tioketwill be snowed under to the tune of from 20000 to 80000

Information are closed livered an address in New York recently In which she said lam study ing ecomics this year and I have learned that it is the condition of social lifetbat people shall work for one another and it is the Interest of society to enable every member to work A human thing who docs no work is not a member of toclety and can have no standing in it It is strange that this frail being whose sightless orbs look only Into the darkness hlch the blind see and whose cars have heard only the still ness which the dear hear has discover ed a truth unseen by countless mil lions who trample upon each other In their mad effort to secure the lions share of earthly bounties strange that the harmony of human life should have penetrated her understanding when It Is unheard by multitudes of selfish and selfcentered people Why is it Either some companion ha given her an ideal which seapes her thoughts or protected from the friv olities of life by the wall which her misfortunes have builded her heart is open to the highest and best in the beautiful parable of the sower explains why some receive truth more readily than others Some seed He said fell where the thorns sprang up and choked it and In interpreting Its meaning to His diciples He said that the cares of this world and the deceitful ness of riches choke the truth So it has ever been the cares of this world and the deceit fulness of riches still choke the truth Helen Keller heart seems to be the goad ground where it brings forth many fold- Enraged because her husband had walked along the

the remains until the father of the girl arrived on the scene and dragged tbe body into the house The Davis womah returned to her home told her Husband what she had done and made her escape In Covington last Wednesday Miss Bertha Stelnforth was introduced to John W Hillman and they withChas Ebreux and Miss Lula Mehlmann walked to a corner drug store to get some soda water While on tbe street Miss Steinforth in a spirit of bravado proposed that the pair have a double wedding All consented and they were married after midnight Miss Mehlmans father refused to let his daughter return home wren notified of the escapade While Tom Whites brother was dis cussing tbe trial now in progress at Cynthlana on the streets at Jackson with a groupe of people he made the sensational statement that Attorneys French and Golden and Judge James Hargis had all agreed that it they failed to get a continuance of the trial they would file a motion asking for a seperate trial for Tom White Men who change their politics or re Jigion usually rush to the extreme in the opposite direction A zeal well nigh bordering on fanaticism seems necessary on their part as an evidence of good faith This fact was strikingly illustrated- at the republican State convention held at Louisville by the intolerant utterances of men who have in the past rccieved honor and profit at the hands of the democratic party but who had out lived their usefulness in this convention and found it nece s sary to browse in new pastures or shiver miserably in the cold on the outside Under the present law five cents of the State taxgoes into the State sink- Ing fund This has been neccessary in order to accumulate an amount hut ficent to pay the interest of the State debt aqd to retire the bonds at their maturity Nearly the entire State debt was recently discharged with money obtained from our war claim It is now no longer necessary that so much be turnen in the sinking fund An effort will be made before our next of Legislature to secure the passage of an act to so change the appointment that at least three cents shall be transferred from tie sinking fund to the school fund This would not Increase the x peoples taxes but would add about 8180000 to tbeschool fund WHISKY CAUSES TROUBLE Watkins Cross was shot In the neck with a 33 pistol at close range by Arth ur Lucas in the woods near Raywlck picnic grounds The ball almost sev ered his windpipe and throat and lodged near the neck bone on the left side and his chin was powder burnt Tbe wounded man Is In a dangerous condition He is married and has a childrentLucas and Ed Cross were brought here and lodged in jail and yesterday O car Lamkin and Ben and Sydney Lucas were arrested as accessories and brought here Bond in the sum of for Arthur Lucas 8100 for Ben Lucas and 8250 each for the others was fixed by the court Ben and Sydney Lucas give bond and the others arc in jail It is said that the trouble came up over some moonshine whisky and that the man who did the shooting ran his victim about 160 yards and caught him to commit the bloody deed The par ties live in the country between Ray besguilty of moonshlning for which they will most likely have to answer Ma rion Falcon AS TO COL HALEY Whenever a republican newspapsr in Kentucky runs out of something to say it jumps on Col Percy Haley whenever any opponent of democracy is inclined to exercise his lungs he thumps Col Haley with his mouth This does not injure the Col in the least and greatly relieves a lot of gen tlemen who imagine that whenever they blow their breath a cyclone is of the abuse of Col Haley comes from those who know the sterl ing qualities of the man and recall his long faithful and valuable work for his party There is not a democrat in all Kentucky who has served democracy so faithfully spent his time and his money more generously and reaped less reward than has Percy Haly In the famous BlackburnHunter fight the Goebel contest and the Beckham ompaign his work was of such a nature as to attract the attention and win he affection of his party leaders No man stood closer to Blackburn Goebel and Beckham n o man was more unreservedly trusted with all the secrets of these campaigns and no man ever more thoroughly deserved that trust It was declared by the late Gov Goebel and the truth of the av sertion will be borne out by Senator Blackburn and Governor Beckham that whatever was told to Percy Haley in confidence was buried in the grave and that whatever he promised to do was always done A truer friend a more stcdfast devoted loyal demo crat does not live Not even his ene mies have ever attacked his personal honesty or denied him that high tes of all crowns Absolute integrity He is a born fighter and a true man a quick brained shrewd politician Col Haley has barely reached the age of twentyeight years and today Is one of the prominent charactors of the State He is abused by enemies and esteemed by those who know his sterling qualities best and appreciate them highest It can be truthfully said of him that every scar he bears was rccieved lighting either for his friends or for his party He can well afford to pass by in silence the jibes and sneers of those who disparage him knowing in his own heart he deserves that highest otall econlums a friend faithful unto death a democrat loyal to the core and an honest man Glas gow Times ALL SHOULD JOIN HANDS No town will become a good business center so long as the majority of its business men rely upon a few mer chants to make the efforts to bring the trade to town To often the men in a few lines of trade are about the only ones to reach after custom Oth er merchants wait until these businessmen induce the people to town and content themselves with the trade that natually drifts to their places A public spirited man should ask himself if he is doing his part to attract the people to come to town He may be holding his trade well and ven by fair dealing and popular way getting his full share of the trade but he is not doing his part as a member of the business community if he is not helping to extend tbe business of the town Any merchant who induces people- to come to town to trade is helping the entire business community and no town Is a success unless all lines are working to extend the trade as fast as possible and trying to bring a larger territory into the circle of the business center Indiana has the best crop of canta lopes and watermelons for years j rA Suicide Preventye- Tee startling announcement that a preventive of suicide had
