Pike Question excellent and examine for yourselves Compe thty 1 The committee sent to Frankfort appeared before the Sinking Fund Commissioners on last Friday and fered them 14003 for their interest in

Sree Buena Vista S500 The other companies in the county refused the offers made as estimated by the committee and have replaced their gates Only one road so far the Richmond has applied for guardsan the County Judge furnished two for each gate It is hard to tell now just what will be done The court relies upon its committees estimate as being perfectly reasonable as to prices for the roads and

in beIng merely brainy or being considered so I had not thought that the boarding house landlady would be attacked with this fatal complaint which can gen erally be warded ofT by cooking and the elemontary arithmetic of the grocers book but I had not outlived the stay of more than four hired girls when the landlady fell a victim to the disease The first sign of it was a sudden and persistent fish diet and a pocket die tionary in her apron pocket She served the soup out with the manner of the president of Sorosis and her wrappet began to assume a dogeared and nit But circumstances were against her One day the table was graced by a red rose not of the calico and artificial type that decorated the reception room smelling of patchouli and Haunting like i brazen woman but a natural

realizations and its bitter disappointments its sighs and its tetr3 has passed away It consti tuted one page in the great book of life upon which every deed for weal r for woe was recorded and upon which the bright and the dark spots are mysteriously placed telling the true story of real life Now that we have begun to fill an other page let us pause and consider the deep responsibility which rests upon us Let us contemplate calmly and dispassionately the effect of our words and deeds not only upon our own characters but upon those with whom we mingle in the dreary battle of life Let us brighten the page with deeds of charity and words of cheer None have fallen so low as to ba de void of influence and before the court of Heaven we will be held responsi ble for our many misdeeds just in proportion to our opportunities to know better and to realize the error of our way Life is only a book large or small consisting of as many pages as years we have live1 the good deeds shining in pure golden light and the evil deeds represented by dark blurs and blots The book is always open to the inspection of mankind and from its pages our characters are formed and our reputations are determined So every one is the author of a book which is constantly read by his neigh bors and which should therefore bo published with the greatest care The gross crimes fill the pages of some while good and evil deeds are seen in others The prevailing sin which is recorded more or less in every book is that of backbiting or tattling We insist that on the new page which we have just opened this low degrading sin will not be record ed Place the finger of charity over the evil deed of your fellowbeings and remember that you are mortal also and If the heart were unveiled and the con science read on the brow There arc molly we would pass in scorn who wear the highest honors now All nations both ancient and by common consent celebrate the beinning of a new year with festive rejoicing time of reckoning has varied with different nations The Athenians began the year in June the Romans for a time in March the Persians on August 11th and the Chi nese in February 50 that modern The Many years ago the nobles gave presents to the sovereign expecting favors in return and it was to present gifts to the to bias his judgment Among the Chinese the festivities are kept up for three days the first thing being the payment of debts and if a tradesman cannot pay his debts he gives his goods to his custom that we should establish here In Paris there are brilliant displays and tokens of good will are freely given while all the bells oi the city are rung THE RECORD extends hearty con gratulations to its patrons for the rich blessings they are enjoying and earnest wishes for a continuation of the same Living in the bright light of gospel truth and scientific investi gation surrounded by and permitted to enjoy every blessing that can ema nate from nature and her God we to live purer and better lives thereby manifesting a due ap of these unmerritted bless ings BeginTifvanew abandon sin pass sweet words of cheer to the and oppressed condi tion of life and when thT ear has rolled away

to the weary soul when the hour of dissolution arrives TIlE Kentucky Legislature assem bled at Frankfort Tuesday As the democrats have majorities in both houses their caucus nominees were elected

holdings in turnpike stock have shrunk in value from 400000 to 100000 and says If this spirit of lawlessness is not stamped out the day is not far dis tant when the State will be under the control of

SENATOR DEBOE will withdraw his bill to reform the civil service and sub stitute therefor a bill calling for total repeal lie thinks the new bill will be more likely to secure Democratic support The civil servica is too great a protection to congressmen from the army of office seekers for them to ever repeal it All this fuss about the re peal is done for show Ax intimate friend of Dr Godfrey Hunter United States Minister to Guatemala says that should condi tions there not prove to his liking Hunter will resign and return home to push his contest atrainst Congress man Rhea Gov McCreary The following is another editorial from the Interior Journal of recent dateWe have not consulted Gov Mc Creary as to whether he will be a can didate for Congress next year but we are satisfied that there is a general for Him to make the race His unswerving fidelity to the democratic party his success in his past races for Congress his devotion to duty while a member of that body and the position he took as a representative make who desire the success of the party instinctively turn to him as the cowhided 2 x 4 Little Hanna pro demand democrats man to redeem the district Without discussing his lengthy record as a which we could with great credit to him we shall only refer to the two last campaigns which tested democrats more thoroughly than ever before Gov McCreary actively Bryan and made speeches for him and the platform at various points in the State in the last presidential campaign He also supported John B Thompson the democratic nominee for Congress and made speeches for him in the district one of which was in Stanford by invitation when he made a rousing appeal for Bryan Thompson and democracy- In the campaign this year he made a numler of speeches for Shackelford and county democratic tickets His speech in the convention that nomi nated Shackelford was received with great favor and his devotion to demo cratic candidates and democratic plat forms was acceptable to alL In the Senatorial race two years ago he agreed to a democratic caucus and like a true democrat should urged his friends to go into the caucus and sup port the nominee promising to do so himself no matter who was nominated The member who put him in nomina tin moved to make Senator Black buYu s nomination unanimous and it was so done when he received a ma jority of the Votes The governor has said to friends we learn who have approached him on the subject that the success of the democratic party in this Congressional district is paramount to his success and that he is ready to actively sup port the candidate nominated by the democratic party We have shown that Shackeiford on ly beat Bailey 586 in this district and when the votes of Hindman and the other candidates for appelate clerk are subtracted it was shown that he lost the district by 945 The claim can not therefore be made that this is a dead sure democratic district It will be hoove the democrats to put forth their best and strongest man Let there be no unseemly scramble for the place but let eyery democrat seek the good of the party and with a harmonious nomination we will sweep the district as of yore There will be but one office voted for in November and the candidate will look after the organization and bear the burdens of the campaign without the aid of other candidates We believe that Gov Mc Creary is more fully capable of mak ing a successful campaign than any man in the district but if convinced otherwise we are ready to accept any man who can pilot us safely to victory democrat supported haveto ood Queen

old principle and is based up on the actual experience of successful life insurance companies a period of over 200 years The same principles govern both only WE pay while you LIVE THEY pay when you DIE WE offer the INVESTMENT features THEY protect in case of DEATH With them death is the moving factor causing the payment of the policy with us a definite and fixed mathematical rule in lieu of death matures the policy INSURANCE IS A LAW OF AVERAGE They figure on so many men out of a thousand figure on so many policies They kill the man we kill the policy There is no reason why a Ulan should die to reap the ben fit of his investment We return an average of 230 for every dollar paid us and yet we assume an obligation less than onethird as great as has been assumed and paid for years by the leading life insurance companies of America OUR IMCI IOIVOnly about twenty 20 per cent of the people are insurable Only the sound and healthy who least need its advantages can obtain life insurance Why should there not be a means provided whereby the other eighty So per cent of the population can carry an the same as the favored few who can get life insurance Our mis sion is to open the door to the entire population to enjoy the same or greater benefits for an equal or less expenditure considering the ad vantage to be derived and that those advantages may be enjoyed during life by the one making the investment NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESS That our plan is popular and based upon sound business is evidenced by our large and increasing membership as shown our remarkable Exhibit of Growth
