leave his bed It is yet undecided whether the Re publicans of this county will call a pri mary to make county nominations or hold a convention We have talked to quite a number of the candidntes and

MEN DID THE WORK The expected happened last Wednes day night when a mob of about thirty or forty citizens of Russell county visited the Monticello jail took therefrom Elmer Hill who assaulted anti murder ed little Mamie Wormack near Russell Springs conveying him to the mouth of Greasy Creek in Russell county and there hanged him until he was dead his body being left dangling from a tree when the mob withdrew It is useless to repeat the history of the crime as a full account of it appeared- in the issue of the News of last week There was no trouble at the Monti cello jail Sheriff Wright was not at the jail with a posse ofmen The jailer was called up and the mob made its business known The jailer seeing that it would be useless to resist gave up the keys It is said that the mob who executed Hill was made up of some of the best citizens of Russell county who felt that they could not longer wait for the death of a man who had committed such a dastardly crime 1While a great many will say that it been better for Russell county if the law had been permitted to have taken its course but very few if any will censure the action of the men who participated in putting to death the man who committed the most heinous crime ever recorded in this sec tion of Kentucky or in any other State It is our understanding that Hill soon after he was taken from the jail at Monticello confessed his guilt in the hearing of a Wayne county gentleman who happened to be up at the time Even if he did not confess he left sub stantial evidence discarded clothing which were found at the home of his grandfatherIt here hoverer that TiiIls full confession was made to Mr Cyrus Dunbar a merchant at the mouth of Greasy creek just before he was hanged He was permitted by the mob to talk to Mr Dunbar He stated that he was guilty and that no other person was implicated He also said that the only thing he regretted was that he wanted to live so that he could treat three other girls in the neighborhood the same way We also learn ffom another source that Hill did not see Mr Dunbar and that his confession was made to the mob but it was substantially what is stated above that he said to Dunbar While the law was not vindicated the world has been made richer Russell and her sister counties happy areI A Handsome Home Mrs J R Hindman of this place who is a lady of refinement and delicate taste concluded a few weeks ago to have her home remoddled She consult ed the Governor and he told her to em ploy mechanics and make any changes she desired and he would see that the bills were

fancy work about the varanda is espically at tractive In fact the whole dwelling was made almost new All the wood work has been painted Mrs Hindman selecting the paints being ordered from a Detroit Michigan firm The roof is deep red and the varandas largely white and the body of the house is maple leaf brown It is one of the most delight ful homes in this section of Kentucky Overdrew the Picture The Danville correspondent of the- CourierJournal overdrew the picture in writing up the hanging of Elmer Hill In fact there was but little truth in the article sent out from Danville The statement that Hill asked for the singing of a song and that Jesus Lover of My Soul was sung and that one of the mob offered up a fervent prayer for Hill was all bosh Also the statement that Hill belonged to a good family He was a bastard and a mud eater and had been a bad egg from a short time after he was hatched iJ Rosenfield Cox This Wednesday evening Vat 8 oclock Mr Geo N Rosenfield of this

the losing political side is that you are not worried about fixing up any combinations to land a political job Men would have less time for business if they worried as much over getting a new suit of

women really imagine that us fellows cant distinguish the difference between paint and natural complexion Auditor Pays Shortage Auditor Frank P James turned into the State Treasury the- sum of 2017 04 which a complete investigation of the records since January 5 1908 when he assumed charge of the office shows that Judge C E Booe took of the States funds through the padded warrant system Booe had no bond to protect Au ditor James in his capacity of claim clerk so the Auditor was compelled to make good the shortage of his own pocket He has stood ready to do ever since itbe- came apparent that Booe had misappropriated a large sum since acting as claim clerk under the new administration but simply waited for the official inve tigation to show what the amount was This State Inspector and Examiner Thatcher has completed and Auditor James immediately turned the required amount into the treasury Mr James stated that the in vestigation into Booes accounts showed enough to induce the be lief that the total amount may reach 25000 or 30000 He said that the investigation is on ly about half over and already the amount taken is shown to be about 12000ti The Proper Use of the U S Mails Postmaster

been dropped and is now revived by the two newspapers mentioned The papers charge that this Government paid 40 000003 to an American syndicate for a kind of franchise for con structing the Canal and that this franchise only cost the syndicate 12000000 In substance the papers charge that there was aI graft of some 28000000 asks Congress to investigate and find out who got it The Presi dent in his i reply consigns the editors of the two papers to the Ananias Club and the editors says the President is another The controversy is quite bitter personal and is a scandal in it selfThe charges are so

and the man was profuse in his thanks Then he asked carelessly What is your bill doctor Fifty dollars sir was the answer What cried the man and in saying it he opened his mouth so wide as to dislocate his jaw a second time The surgeon again put things to rights What did you say your bill was again asked the patient- I said ifr was 50 replied the doctor but now it is 100 The man started to open his
