BL TE 1t Ri ASitftjBLADEIVOLUME I NUMBER 4 LEXINGTON KY SATURDAY FEB fjARY 6 886 SUBSCRIPTION PER YEAR p Cl wJr Lexington Correspondont Writes About Bqarcs The BLADE has received a copy of The Nitioiiul View published in Washington City contains an article written by Mi John Mc Murtry of this city on The mun ner of wearing the heard as an in dicattou of character The main point in the argument is to demon w4strate that the wearing of the mus tache alone is au unfavorable indi cation of character Muali has been said about the manner of wearing the hair and the beard in nil rgcs but I think moral importance attaches to noI other than that to which Lord terfield allude when he says of the dress that it should be such as not to attract attention The beard is worn in so many shapes now that it can hardly be allegedof any one style that it makes a man conspic uous In my early boyhood the wearingof beard was so uncommon that a certain man ot this vicinity who wore a beard was lookedup in as a curiosity and even he would oot have dured to wear a mustache necauso of the popular sentiment baainst it About the time the tran g ion to the fashion of beard wear ing was taking place I suggested to a gentleman afterward President of Kentucky University who was sufleriug from some bronchial trouble that he should tear beard He declined to do so on the ground that it would make him conspicu ous He afterwards told me thut the style of wearing beard was coming so general as to remove hid first objection and afterward wore bearduntilhis death There has always been an im mense dcgiHitiHin on the subject Tertulliun early Church hUtori t J an said that a man who cot off his beard lied to his own face and tried to improve upon a work that i his God had made perfect cud quo ted the Jewish ordinance against murrine the corners of the beard while the term barbariun was applied in contempt by Greek and Roman writers to thin rude nations that wore beards The Nazarilet a Jewish sect to which Sampson belongedwore their hair and heard long and jet St Paul says that nature teaches that it is a shame for u nnn to wear long hair George Washington wore his hair plaited down his hack but would have scorned the idea of wearing any kind of bead espe dullY a mustache while Mr Cluve land shingles his hair and wears u mustache alone Aa u question of taste and rrornls it is perfectly arbitrary while us a question of health and comfort men should wear their boards long in the win ter and cut them short with scis sors for summer As a question of neatness any u long mustache shouldcarefully use his napkin at table Reflections on Congressman Rankins Death t Representative Rankin lately died in Washington of a protracted illness which ftus known to hia physicians and himself fur a considerable time beforehand as neces sarily fatal His language in an ticipation of his death was so re markably cool and deliberate that those heard him thought he was joking though he earnestly declared that ho was not I do not know what his religious or philosopieul opinious may have been but it is highly probable thus a man in his position intellectually must have had some decided con jviotions regarding that must won lerful and interestingof all phe nomena death It is strange how little this most interesting question is dismissed in any secular journalism It may be said that as viewed from any secular standpoint it is shrouded in mystery and it is but investigation und tce interuhungo of thought have penetrated and elucidated many things before thought inscrutable and always with beneficial results mull can sue no good reason why men who tuku in pro ing into all kinds of IIhSlrIlsithHhUllhl stand silent in contemplation of IIuthII it they Hippitsel it cold lie robbed of its supposed horror by ignoring it I think it probable that this lied of thought is that which the phi1 luiithrnpistiniy cultivate with grouter yield of hum happimM thuu uuy other There is no doubt that the f Ill of death is oidinnrily an alloy of human happiness as it is contemplated remotely hilt does not seem to be realized by the most ut men when the event is evidently at handr111 mom entitle to their convictions upon this subject mid it is bid policy to discourage free exchange of sentiment about The most that any lUaU cm itI about it now with the light before us is that he honestly be lieves corlnin things about it and nobody hut a dogmatist will claim to know about it If it ho true that the human mind is indestructi ble nUll win survive tho dissolution of the body and that in some kind of an existence more similar than anything else that wo Know of to that which we experience in our dream jve r1II yrneetbayoml tho river trill know each other there it certainly is a thought as well worthy of the animadversions of secular journalism as the dreams of poets and artist about which nil delight to express their appreciation somethinghiidn and from some causa the press has been intimidated and muzzled Such a state of affairs is not wholesome and adherents to theory ot immortality damage their argu discouragofreIf the idea be not true no wise mon will say we are justified in deluding ourselves about it and if it be true quasi argument against it will just ns much establish its truth as that directly for it This was tho reasoning of Gamaliel andan astute teacher mathematics would congratulate himself upon the portunity to instruct his class if some bright boy should really be lieve and undertake to prove that the three angles of a triangle were NOT equivalent to two right angles If this be not true und the in vestigation can be conceived as demonstrating the philosophy of the French revolutionists that doth is an internal sleep I must confess that Isee nothing horrible in the idea Ifn man does not now legret that he did not live a thou whyheliving a thousand years in the future from now since there is no reason to suppose that the annihila tiof the future would be env more uncomfortable to him than that which he has already experienced in the past It to this it he answered that a future annihilation involves n sepa ration from friends andn sundering of cherished ties that were not volved in the past annihilation it is rejoined that just such a sundering- of all these relations occurs evcrv tine a man falls into u turofound- sleep for then certainly there is no appreciation of difference between friend and nle1111et sleep is a condition of existence which men court und prize just in proportion as in its deepness and intensity it approaches death Ic seems philosophical that in neither of those views of death is there anything to warrant its dread lint there is a third alleged condition of existence death and that is the one of everlasting ntise ry known ns hell Oi those who accept tho theory of the immortail ty the large majority profess to believe and arc reasonably suppos ed actually to believe tint the future existence in a state of happiness or in one of misery is contingent upon certain things in life over whieh some allege that all mOil have control while tethers allege that they

but what fiod looking in to his heart knows of him Now for our point of disagree meat Thia point I put with tho profoundest respect mingled with regret Sam Jones speaks impromptu Bro Moore sits down

might just as well ask a lawyer or physi cian if ho understands his profession or ask a clergymen if ho preaches for the glory of God or for a salary as to ask an editor what his circula tion riy Association should recommend that stato statutes require the editors or papers quarterly or semiannually to state under oath to the clerks of their respective counties the average circulation of their papers for the past three or six months as the case may be just 88j banks are required to mako reports their condition This Association shonld also recommend to states the enactment of statutes that would require editors to give such bonds as would restrain them from such inaccurate publications as are liable to damage inno cent parties as for instance the ro cent publication by the Louisville Times that Stato Geologist Proctor hud skipped with all the State funds in his posseaion A law whether statutory or con ventional merely I know notwhichc Association should repudiate as unjust and ex parte is that which periodically and chronically pub lished by the rural editor whichrequires that a man shall be required to pay for a paper which ho may take out of the office and which is sent to

contingency ont which ho had never thought and under which his long predetermined course had not been plainly and unwaveringly markedout I regard the death of my friend Judge Reid ns an instance of heroic submission to the dictates of conscience that has rarely if ever had its counterpart iu tho history ref this- ountry In his wholo lifo he was a mighty mm of valor but like Ma noahs sou was

cents which rat being operatedconsiderable d made dividends to the stockholders This suggests the inference that while fifty cents in a war rate in Baltimore yet the Chesapeake Com pany apparently

a distant conservatory on Rockminstors arm Bourchler went straight up to the pair Tho last was our dance I think Mrs Ormskirk he said in a voico that Struggled to bs calm but only succeeded in being

COMPANY OFFICE 25 W SHORT STREET Jcdt1Jtot1 ICyt SATURDAY FEBRUARY 0 1880 p A PERPLEXING SITUATION Gov KNOTTS letter to the Legis laturo on the penitentiary question discloses a most remarkable state of affairs in that institution All the machinery implements and even the t bsds on which tho convicts sleep the contractors Tho State ownstho buildings tho boilers and engines and a few old hemp looms anJ nothing ese The State doer iknotown a pound of meat or an ounce of flour on which to feed the convicts and there is not a dollars worth oi material on which to employ the convicts and to cap the climax th Stato has no money with which to buy anything It will cost 870 day to feed the convicts and pay ex pe tses or 8137801 for a year The constitution prohibits the State from t borrowing another dollar claims against the treasury have already ben deferred six months every cent foissixty days must go to the school fund and what is the State oing t do with thu convicts in the moau timeP There is manifestly nothing that 1 can be done but to let them starve to death or for the Governor to turn everyone of them loose on the com munity by wholesale pardons The next best thing might be for the Legislature to enact a law pro viding for the convicts to be turne out on a ticket fleave as it i termed in England By thiaform o furlough the English convicts are on good behavior turned out of prison and required to report to certain ficials at stated times They may be turned into any jail on proof of bad conduct and the ticketofleave is therebyrevoked In this exceedingly perplexing sit nation in tho Kentucky penitentiary the Legislature might provide for a ticketofloave for all convicts in for crimes other than treason murder arson and rape and thus find re lief in the only possible way that is visible This is rendered more im perative from the fact that when Co return the leased convicts there will be fully 1100within the walls of the penitentiary On this point Gov KSOTT says This in my judgment would be a popular calamity It suggests possibilities at which humanity revolts with in stinctive horror There are all told 744 cells in the penitentiary for malt prisoners Of these but G48 are available and they are barely sum cie tt fur one convict each The remaining 06are totally unfit for oc cupancy except in the mildest weather Therefore unless some provisions shall be made for their ac commodation over 1OJO convicts must be crowded into quarters scarcely sufficient for 048 In other words over 700 human beings must eulIft inches high and 6 filet 8 inches long farnishiug under the most favorable ciraum stances air sufficient for a single per son only If you would realize the tirible results which must ensue om such condition of things you have but to refer to the horrible his tory of squallor misery crime dis ease and death disclosed by the in vestigation of tho condition of the penitentiarymade by your predecessors in the winter of 187080 With such facts storing them in the face we do not see why legis lators should hesitate a moment in adopting the ticketofleave plan It would probably set loose 75 per cent of the convicts who are in for minor offenses and give tho State o breathing spell and an opportunity to make suitable provision for tho poor wretches who fall into the clutches of the law But no matter what is done the Legislature should abolish tho odoua lease system by which convict labor is brought into ruinous competition with tho honest wageworkers of our State THE Houso of Representatives was disbanded again yesterday to enable 1 the architect to place props under the floor The legislators will carry soft cushions and stepladders hereafter the former to make the fall easy and the latter to enable them to climb out after tho stilts under the floor give way IT looks as if the State officers in connection with Co are determined to bully the Legislature into dismissing penitentiary Warden SOUTH Tho Board dismissed Sourn who went to work and secured the sympathy of tho Legislature the Governor and the other members of the Board standing too high on their dignity to endeavor to have their side of the case presented to the Legislators Now that has been vindicated by the Legislature the convict lessees hasten to an nounce their determination of throw ing off on their contract well knowing tho situation in which they thereby place the State and doubtless relying on this as a means of compelling the Legislature to turn out The Governor suddenly sees the perplexities of the situation and delivers a message to the Legis lature describing its horrors iu riipute language He doublles knew all the facts just as well a month ago as ho does today tad tho withdrawal of Co coupled with his message seems to convey the plain hint that the Leg islature can do only one thingants hut is dismiss SOUTH The question is a tough one If the Legislature does not want to double on its record it can provide n ticketoflaave law which is about till that is left for it to Jo This would be an experiment that would be watched with decided interest but it it the only visible way out of the di lemma It is the penalty for incom petent and botchwork legislation and is notice to the people that they will best serve their interests electing good and judicious men t the Legislature hereafter IT was while Judge
