S. O'Neal died at his residence, on Lexington, street, Tuesday afternoon at 4:33 o'clk He had been subject to attacks of asthma all his life, and at times the suffering was great, but the last spell was dec'dedly the most severe he ever had. He was on the streets Friday evening attending to some important business and became overheated. He went home and suffered greatly thro' the night. Saturday he was ab'e to go to his office, some fifty yards from the house, but that night was taken much worse and the disease went into bronchial pneumonia. Those who attended him say they never witness ed such agony as he suffered. He grew rapidly worse and was delirious at times until the end came. Dr. O'Neal was born at Verona Boone county, Ky., sixty-twyears ago. He graduated from the Ohio Medical College in bout 1SC1. In 18S5 he located in Lancaster where he has since practiced his profession success fully. He was an unusually attentive physician to his patiants and nev gave up a case while there was the least ray of hope of saving life. He was one of the most sympathetic and d men it has ever been our pleasure to know and wc can soy, from personal experience, that he put his whole soul into his work when waiting on the sielc. fcevcral ago he remained with the writer of this article one entire night while we were down with t3'phoid fever, and although unable to find a pulse on our bo.ly for eight hour, he never gave up, and worked with untiring energy until he succeodea in bringing us out We merely mention tl.is fact as a speclm n of his zeal and plucl as a physician. He was a Baptist and a leading fig ure in the management of the local church. He gave close attention to his own affairs, and it can be said of Dr. O'Neal that he never dabbled in other people's business.

Dr. B. F. Herndon, stut- ing that County Judgo Wjatt had deguards clared that the quarantine would not be paid by the county. Dr. Catron also brought with him his guards sent there from this city. Dr. Catron says the proprietors of the coal works were very sorry to see him leave, and offered every inducement possible to have him stay. The people of this city are greatly excited over the return of the doctor and his guards to this city, as they all have been exposed to the smallpox. Dr. Catron and Dr. C. G. Herndon, members of the board, have tendered their resignations to the secretary, Dr. B. F. Herndon. Dr. Catron reports that a genuine case of smallpox exists at East Jellico, and thinks the disease will reach this city within the next few days, as all members of the health board refuse to enforce the quarantine because of Judge Wyatt's statement that the guards will not be paid by the county. The guards who were on duty at East Jellico mines were refused admission to their homes by their parents. TWO MORE VETOES. for Guards, aud They Are Withdrawn. ItAKiiouitviLl.K, Ky., March 14.

Mrs. Tilitha Hughes died March 9, at the advanced age of 82 j'ears, at the old homestead where she has resided all her life. The deceased was the daughter of Daniel an I Mary O'Ban- non, and of Judge 'lhompson. She is the last of a very prominent family. She leaves three sons and three daughters to mourn her loss. She united with Pleasant Grove church early in life, was a woman of most beautiful Christian character, accepting with thankful heart the sunshine, and bearing patiently the burdens of a long and useful life. Her door was always open to all the orphaned, widowed and the friendless. It may be truly said of her, that she always thought of others before herself, and was ready when the summons came. She was laid to rest by the side of her husband in the cemetery at the Fork, after funeral services by Rev. W. M.

Sam Harris. The many friends and acquaintances of Capt Sam B. Harris were greatly shocked Friday morning when a telegram from Louisville announced his death. On the evening previous, his brother, Mr. E. W. Harris, was summoned to Louisville by the rather sudden illness, but before he arrived there Capt Harris had breathed his last. He had been sick only since Tuesday, when he was compelled to call a physician to his residence at Filth street Court place. The following morning he was removed to the Norton Infirmary, his condition having grown-morserious. The remains were brought here Friday and the following morning were laid to rest in the Lancaster Cemetery. He was a member of the Christian church, and Elder Gowen conducted a brief service at the grave. Captain Harris was one of three sons of Elemuel Harris. The father, mother and other brother, Cash, died many years ago. The family always resided in Lmcast r, except Captain Sam, who lived in Louisville since the sixties. He was born in Lancaster years ago. He was the first mail agent at Louisville under first administration, being appointed in 1801. During his first connection with the postal service he used to run out on every train from Louisville. In 1SC9 or 1870 he went into the Louisville postoffice as superintendent of mails. He remained in office until 1887, when under Cleveland's first administration he was removed. Upon Harrison's inauguration Postmistress Thompson took him back as superintendent of the registry division, and he was again removed when Mr. Charles P. Weaver became postmaster. By good management he succeeded in laying by a comfortable share of this world's goods. A more liberal hearted or true friend we never knew than was Capt. Harris. He was always ready to help those in distress and may well be called "a man with his heart in his hand." The remains were accompanied to Lancaster by postmaster T. 11. Baker, Clerk of the Railway Mail Service, J. B. Jenks, Assistant Chief e Clerk W. E. Greenaway and Clerks W. M L. Ramsey and Frank Morton. The employees of the Louise ville also sent a large and beautiful floral design, as a slight token of their high regard for the deceased. e nine Lin-coin- 's Post-officpost-offic- & ' oo.

Like tho Martyr Stonrri Ily the Roman Mob, All of Us May See tlm tllnr'.es of Heaven if We Hut Embrace ilia l.illh Taliuage's Sermon. Stock This report is made up from replies received from 10 correspondents representing 103 counties. It has been deemed best to subdivide the State in to three grand divisions in order that the average may be made to apply to some crops that are peculiar to each section. The western section embraces :VJ counties, and is westof alinedrawn from Hardin county on the north to Alien county on the south. The central, or more probcrly the norte cen tral, embraces o counties lying east of the above named line, and northeast of an irregular line drawn from Hart county to the county of Greenup In the northeast corner of the State. The southern section embraces the remaining 43 counties lying southeast of the last mention line. The western counties, almost without exception, grow the darker, heavy type of tobacco, while in the north central section the production is confined to the bur-le- y types. Roth the western and north central sections produce a largt surplus of agricultural products. In the southeast section the grain produced is consumed at home, it being a rare occurrence to ship beyond the confines of the counties. This section, however, produces largely of stock, cattle, sheep and hogs. These subdivisions will be adhered to in the future without calling further attention to the fact. WHEAT. ' In the western section the condition of the wheat crop compared with Oa March 1, 1&9G, the onditlons of wheat includinir the whole SUte wasC4, and for March 1, the condition was SS. On December 1, 1S97, the date of the last report from this 15ureau, the condition for the State was 10.1, snowing a foiling off for the western section, as compared with the State, of 10 points during the wincorrespondents from ter. Forty-tw- o the western section reply to the question "has wheat suffered from any cause during the winter, ".and of this fifteen reply "yes"' and twentj--seve"no". Hessian fly and freezing and thawing without snow protection are thu causes mostly assigned. Hessian fly, while frequently reportcl, does not seem to be doing serious damage, 92 per cent, in Barren county being the lowest average reported due from this caus?, while freezing and thawing has reduced the condition to Off per cent, in McCracken county. The per cent, of old crop still in farmer's hands in this section is 19, and the average price of wheat is 91 cents. On March 1, 1897, the per cent, reported still in farmers' hands, the State Included, was 9, and the price 84 cent. In the north central section the condition average 93- - Twelve correspondents report daraege to wheat during winter and 32 report no damage. No fly damage is reported in this section. Here the per cent of 1897 crop still in the farme-- hands is 14, and the average price is 93 cents. The per cent. of condition ranges from GO county to 120 in the county of Henry. In the southeast section so little wheat is giovn that the pro luction in the State is not effected, and for this rear son no estimate is given. n s, HOG CHOLERA. There seems to be an annual abatement of hog cholera in all sections. Only 39 correspondents out of 112 report cholera. A REMEDV. A ' gentleman from Western Kentncky gives the following remedy for hog cholera by the ose of which he claims to be able to ward off and arrest the disease: Black antimony, powdered one pint. Pulverized sulphur one pint. Saltpeter (pulverized) one pint. Mix the above ingredients well with bran water, and feed it to the in hogs in the morning early, and a like quantity at night This is for 50 hogs, and the medicine can be increased or decreased according to the number of hogs to be fed. As a preventative it .should be given once or twice a month. If given to cure it should be given once or twice a day for a week or ten days. Lucas Moore.

So they rushed gates of out of the Stephen curse, and the city, and with whcop, and bellow they brought him to the cliff, as was the custom when they wanted to take away life by stoning. Having brought him to the edge of the cliff they pushed him over. After he had fallen they came and looked down, and seeing that he was not yet dead, the.7 began to drop stones upon him, stone after stone. Amid this horrible rain of missiles, Stephen clambers up on his knees and folds his hands, while the blood drips from his temples to his cheeks, from his cheeks to his garments, from his garments to the ground; and then, looking up, he makes two prayers one for himself and one for his murderers. "Lord Jesus, receive in- - spirit:" that was for himself. "Lord, lay not this sin to their charge;" that was for his assailants. Then, from pain and loss of blood, he swooned awaj' and fell asleep. five pictI want to show you ures. Stephen gazing into Heaven. looking at Christ Stephen Stephen stoned.

Before you take a- leap you want to know where you are Before you climb ijoing to land. a ladder you want to know to what point the ladder reaches. And it was right that Stephen, within a few moments of Heaven, should be gazing into it We would all do well to be found in the same posture.

The whole universe is His palace. In this lower room where we stop there are many adornments; tessellated floor of ames thyst nd on the winding are stretched out canvases on which commingle azure, and purple, and saffron, and gold. But .'.leaven is the gallery in which the chief glories are gathered. There are the brightest robes. There are the richest crowns. John says of it: "The kings of the earth shall bring their honor and glory into it" And I see the procession forming, and in the line come all mpires, and the stars spring up into an arch for the hosts to march under. The hosts keep step to the sound of earthquake and the pitch of avalanche from the mountains, and the flag they bear is the flame of a consuming world, and all Heaven turns out with harps and trumpets and inyriad-voicee of angelic dominion to them in, and so the Icings of the arth bring their honor and glory into '.t Do you wonder that good stand, like Stephen, looking into Heaven? We have many friends there. There is not a man in this house so isolated in life but there is some one in Heaven with whom he As a iflan gets once shook hands. older, the number of his celestial ac quaintances very rapidly multiplies, We have not had one glimpse of them since the night we kissed them good-band they went away; but still we stand gazing at Heaven. As when some of our friends go across the sea, we stand on the dock, or on the steam-tuand watch them, and after hulk of the vesawhile the sel disappears, and then there is only a patch of sail on the sly, and soon that is gone, and they are all out of sight and yet we stand looking in the same direction; so when our friends go away from us into the future world we keep looking down through the Narrows, and gazing and gazing, as though we expected that they would come out' and stand on some cloud, and give us one glimpse of their blissful and transfigured faces. While you long to join their companionship, and the years and the days go with such tedium that they break your heart ad the viper of pain and sorrow and bereavement keeps gnawing at our vitals, you stand still, like Stephen gazing into Heaven. You wonder if they would recognize your face now, so changed has it been with trouble. You wonder if, amid the myriad delights they, have, they care as much for you as they used to when they gave you a helping hand and put their shoulder under You wonder if they your burdens. look any older; and sometimes in the eveningtide when the house is all quiet you wonder if jou should call them by their first name if they would not answer; and perhaps sometimes you do make the cxpcriment,aud when no one but jourself and God are there you distinctly call their names and listen, and sit gazing into Heaven. Pass on now, and see Stephen looking upon Christ My text says he saw the Son of Man at the right hand of God. Just how Christ looked in this world, just how He looks in Heaven, we can not say. A writer in the time of Christ says, describing the Saviour's personal appearance, that he had blue ejes and light complexion, and a very graceful structure; but I suppose it was all guesswork. The painters of the different ages have tried to imagine the features of Christ and put them upon canvas; but we will have to wait until with our own eyes we sec Him and with our own ears we can hear Him. And yet there is a way of seeing and hearing Him now. I have to tell you that unless you see and hear Christ on earth you will never see .and hear Him in Heaven. Look! There He is. Behold the. Lamb of God. Can you not see Him? Then pray to God to take the scales off your eyes. Look that way try to look that way His voice comes down to yon this day comes down to the blindest, y cloud-staird accla-piatio- n wel-;ompno'j'-oftey The discourse of Dr. Talmage which we send out is a vivid story of martyrdom, and a rapturous view of the world to come.

Bolshazzar gathered the Babylonish nobles to his table; George I. entertained the lords of England at a banquet; Napoleon III. welcomed the cz:ir of Russia and the sultan of Tur-keto his feast; the emperor of Germany was glad to have our minister, George Bancroft, sit down with him at his table; but tell me, ya who know most of the world's history, what other king ever asked the abandoned and the forlorn and the wretched and the outcast to come and sit beside him? Oh, wonderful invitation! You can and stand at the head take it of the darkest alloy in an' city, and rags, saj: "Come! Clothes for salve for your sores, a throne for eternal reigning." A Christ that talks like that, and acts l.ke that, and pardons like that do you wonder that I Stephen stoo.l looking at Him? hope to spend eternity doing the same thing. 1 must see Him; I must look tipon that face once clou Jed with sin, but now radiant with my pardon. I want to touch that hand that knocked oil' my shackles. I want to hear that voice which pronounced my deliverance. Behold Him, little children, for if you live to three score years and ten, will see none so fair. Behold Him, ye aged ones, for He only can shine through the failing dimness of your failing eyesight Behold Him, earth. Behold Him, Heaven. What a moment when all nations of the saved shall gather around Christ! All faces that way. All thrones that way, gazing on Jesus. g Resolutions of Respect.

Pass on now and I will show j'ou one more picture, and that is Stephaa asleep. With a pathos and simplicity peculiar to the Scriptures, the text saj's of Stephen: "He fell asleep." "Oh," j'ou saj', "what a place that was to sleep! A hard rock under him. the blood streaming, the mob howling. What a pin"", it was to sleep!" And yet lay text takes that sj'inbol of slum-ba- r to describe his departure. So sweet was it, so contented was it, so peaceful was it Stephen had lived a verj laborious life; his chief work had been to care for the poor. How many loaves of bread lie distributed, how manj bare feet he has sandaled, how manj' cots of sickness and distress he blessed with ministries of kindness and love, I do not know, but from the waj he lived, and the way he preached, an I the way he died, I know he was" a laborious Christian. But that is all over now. He has pressed the cup to the last fainting lip. He has taken the last insult from his enemies. The last stone to whose crushing weight he is susceptible has been hurled. Stephen is dead! The disciples come. They take him up. They wash away the blood from the wounds. They straighten out the bruised limbs. Thej-- brush back the tangled hair from the brow, and then they pass atound to look upon the calm countenance of him who had lived for the poor and' died for the truth. Stephen asleep! I have seen the sea driven with the hurricane until the tangled foam caught in the rigging, and wave rising above wave seemed as if about to storm the heavens, and .then I have seen the tempest drop, and the waves crouch, and everj'thing become smooth and burnished as though a camping place for the glories of Heaven. So I have seen a man, whose life has been tossed and drivon, coming down at last to an infinite calm, in which there was the hush of Heaven's lullabj'. Stephen asleep! I saw such a one. He fought all his daj's against poverty and against abuse. They traduced his name. They rattled at the door knob while he was with duns for debts he could not paj'; j'et the peace of God brooded over his pillow, and while the world faded, Heaven dawned, and the deepening twilight of earth's night was only the opening twilight of Heaven's morn.
