Some of our newspaper friends are having a lot of fun out of our saying that we never asked or begged anyone to take The Record This is our rule boys and another thing we have nev er yet continued to send the paper to anyone who has even intimated that he didnt want it Possibly this is be cause we have a sympathy for those who have to read our miserable but humble scrawlings Just A Word Please Say ye capitalists will you let The Record whisper a word in your ear Why not put some of your surplus cash in some enterprise here at home where you know it will not take wings and fly away and you will get a reas onable return on your money We started to make an estimate of the amount of money lost out of Lancas ter within the last ten yearsand with the help of one who knows from sad experience too we found that enough had been lost to pave every street to the limits with 18 karat gold Yes it would do this and if you will figure a little you will see where the amount reaches to almost that extravagant sum The desire to get rich quick seems to prevail more in small towns than in citeis Now why not invest in some enterprise that will build up the town something that will be a benefit not only to yourself but to those neighbors and friends whom you love There is not a monied man in Lancaster who is a skinflint nor one who will not help in a worthy cause provided he is properly approached but tberes a wheel within a wheel all around and if the right man would take hold of the matter that hotel and opera house could be rebuilt we would have a hemp factory and many other improvements and enterprises that could be made to pay right herein Lancaster Stand up for your town or move out For Enrolling Clerk Miss Amy V Lyons of Nicholasville is a candidate for enrolling clerk of the Lower House of the next general assembly Being in Frankfort soma time during the last session had occasion to see some of her splendid work and her promptness and efflci ency was highly complimented on all hands Last week we had occa sion to ask for a lot of papers and data in connection with Press Association business and her promptness and kindness should be appreciated by the members of that body She is a daugh ter of Wm N Lyons an old wheel horse 10 the democratic party we ic Y Good Work At last meeting of the City Counci- lit was found that the fines etc in the police court paid the salaries of the policemen etc and left more than 100 ahead As this is the first time this has been done for quite a spell it speaks well for the Big Injun and his faithful deputy Nat Siler rapt Austin Doing Nicely It affords The Record much pleas ure to say that its good friend Capt Thos Austin whose leg was broken some weeks since is mending right along and everything points to a spee dv recovery Capt Austin is our coun ty assessor and a faithful oiliest too Nothing Doing During all our experience in ifews paper work we have never known news to be so as during the past month Business holds up with the merchants better than in any January for several years but everybody is nothing and sawing wood We dont know but what tis better so Breaking Hemp by Fires A from Danville says the hemp raisers in that county are expe riencing a great deal of trouble in se curing hands to break the weed W F DeLong however inaugurated an invention this week and now has sev enty hands employed who are work ing beside blazing fires Other farm ers will adopt the same method Stlckney Vine Gun Danville Advocate Mr Graham Price has just received from England one of the finest hammerless shotguns that is manufactured in that country It is the famous Thomas Kilby make and the workmanship and finish is perfection itself He was just eight months in receiving the gun from the time the order was placed which is Indicative of the time it requires in their manufacture The wholesale price is 8480 and a limited number of orders only are received each year Will Not Build We asked a member of the old hotel company in regard to the report that they were figuring on rebuilding aNo he replied the same company will never rebuild In the first place Iam not in favor of building anything in Lancaster until we get some fire protection Then again I am sore yet over the way some people talked about our building The way some wiseacres and their disciples talked about that house was enough to take the building fever out of any man Then another stumbling block is that we would not unless we assured that another fire trap would not be permitted tobe built alongside us No the present company will not rebulldyou emphatically scarce saying I could bI cansay e r telegram Buys 1 a Sells I1U Farm Mr Joe II Arnold sold his farm to Mr J C Criscillus of Madison The place contains about 115 acres and the price was S42 per acre will be given February 10th Mr Arnold will move to the old home place on Lexington pike until he selects another location There was never a cleverer man than Joe Arnold and we join his legion of friends in wishing that ha will remain in this neighborhood The Engineers Knew When the No 4 passenger train to run through Lancaster we were a frequent passenger thereon and time Cynthiana was reached about 530 a m we heard a roaring noise One morning we slipped into the cab of the engine and asked clever Johnnie Clarke the engineer why he turned on his blower so heavily at Cynthiana Blower replied Clark thats not the engine blower thats Editor Jim Allen snoring The oth er morning we passed Cynthiana at 830 and hearing the same noise thought it too late for Allen to be in bed so asked Engineer Billy Manson it he had his blower on at Cynthiana No said Manson thats Editor Allen snoring Passengers in the sleeper kicking on we engineers about this and Mr Hood had to come out and see for himself that we didnt make noise and disturb the pas sengers High and Scarce Turkeys are getting scarce again and the price is higher Time was when turkey was the cheapest meat a householder could buy Last year the very palatable bird could be had at 124 cents a pound and that at the Christ mas season when the demand was greatest Shortly after the season when the supply had 15 cents a pound was the price This year there have been alarming reports about the scarcity and fears were entertained by many that the bird would not form a part of their Christmas and New Years dinner This was mere talk and the only effect was a raise in price to 15 16 cents Now the merchants say that a is at hand and the price has gone up to 20 cents with a possible price of 25 cents a pound With such a price there will be no more stories about the cheapest meat a householder can buy and roast turkey for dinner cold sliced turkey for supper and turkey hash for breakfast will be no more so far as this winter is concerned School The colored school close Feb 6th with appropriate exercises Under the able charge of Prof Louis Leave the school has done good work Monday Possession used every got to fife Christmas finished and famine f- j Anderson big heartad of turkey Colored will X14 y w s 1 Straightening Out The trouble with the local railway mails has been remedied and we now have the best service it is possible to get The mall clerks on the passenger trains got oft at Rowland haretofore and also had the mails delivered to them at that point As the run to Lancaster is short they didnt have time to work the mails properly in that time so the Department ordered them to run to Stanford and the mails are given them there in plenty time to be worked for all points along this road While it is true the present service keeps the postmasters up a little late at points along the line yet the trains bring mail a good many hours sooner than people would get it otherwise The people have caught on to the service now and realize they have a good thing Judge B P Jacobs Dead to the many friends and admirers of that noble gentleman in this city He had not been in the best of health for some months but went to his office Friday and Saturday saying to a friend that he felt better than usual He was taken suddenly worse and expired in a very short time The deceased was one of the most prominent citizens in the state and as a lawyer had no superiors His opin ion was sought in every matter of im Portance in the courts and those who accepted his advice upon any matter never had cause to regret it He was a gentleman of refinement possessed of a brilliant mind and superior edu cation He practiced law upon the highest principles and had the contempt for those who stoop to underhanded methods in the trial of a case In January 1879 Col Jacobs was elected president of the Central National Bank of Danville to succeed the late Col Clifton Rodes and was continued as the president when that institution was reorganized in 1885 and denominated the Boyle National Bank He remained the president until his death and had served twen tyfour years Col Jacobs was a member of the faculty of the Central University Law School under former Gov J Proctor Knott and was member of the Con stitutional Convention In 1890 the place without opposition from either the Democrats Republicans In 1867 Mr Jacobs was married to Miss Zillah P Young daughter ofDr John Mr Jacobs was a graduate of Centre College and for many years had been regarded as most

down his life for his friends There is no true friend ship without selfabnegation self sacrifice An exchange says It may sound startling but statistics say it is true that more young men are learning trades In penitentiaries than out of them because parents are trying to make clerks doctors lawyers and even preachers out of material in tended for carpenters blacksmiths and other trades for mechanics The trouble is that boys are eager to avoid thelabor of life and are too anxious follow some calling that does not soil theirhands At the next session of the Legisla ture a bill should be passed making cigarette smoking in public places a misdemeanor The chance of success does not appear to be very promising because so many people are not inter ested and are apathetic and the is so

Appeals The law alrea dy requires that the claims allowed by the county fiscal courts should be in the newspapers but not half the counties obey the law When Mr Sommers was publishing a newspaper at Munfordville twentyfour years ago he decided to test this law published the claims and sued the county for his pay He won of course and yet a great many large and wealthy counties disregard this very necessary law The Sheriffs settlements should also be published but this is rarely done though the taxpayers are entitled The new law adds to the le gal notices previously required to be published

represented Each of course claimed the honors but the final settlement of the question was left represena tive of each side The represenatives were to prepare essays and submit them to a committee The best essay would decide the difference and this was the prize essay There is one editor in Heaven though how he got there the Lord only knows but it is supposed he rode in on the blind baggage or got a pass When they found him there they tried to turn him out but he refused to go they then hunted all over Heaven for a lawyer to serve ejectment papers but they could not one so the editor held the

spring and summer garments kilted and very much flounced They have fans of contrasting material let in at the hem and one or two double boxplaits at the back In short all manner of skirts are worn provided always they are full and flaring about the feet for it is in this direc tion they are developing says Ameri can Queen Tailored skirts are often seen down the front at the sides or at the back Skirts for outdoor wear are ankle length and usually have the seams ornamented with stitched bands of silk or velvet while those for visiting and evening wear are made with trains and have the lower portion trimmed with crosswise folds of materials quite narrow or very wide just as the wearer may prefer Tassels medallions of lace perforated cloth trimmings fur and embroidery in which chenille silk and even leather are curiously mingled compose some of the dress adornments on the newest models Buttons also play an important part in our dresses Tiny gold or flat passemeterie ones deco rate

Suggestions and Good from an Experienced Houewlfe Household conveniences are not necessarily so much a matter of the outlay of money as gumption Architects are building houses where the maximum of convenience is crowded into the minimum of space but even then brain must be used to make work easy The home of the farmer in moderate circumstances can and does have conveniences that the wealthy did not dream of 50 years ago The range with tho presser boiler the tank in the attic with hot and cold water on tap are within the reach of all They wit not cost as much as the bail money you may have to pay for some fellow who wanted a slight accommoda tion and will be much more satis factory writes Mrs J C Erwin in the Home Magazine Then a front porch large enough for you and your neighbors will de velop a social spirit and help nourish the tender sympathies of life If your house is not yet built think what a saving of time and strength a cellar on a level with the kitchen would be A small cupboard over your table might be trifling in cost and mighty in labor saving if all the things used in baking were within reach without taking a step If you cannot buy such a contrivance make it out of a box A curtain in front looks as well as a door and there is a certain degree of satisfaction in making our own conveniences It ia a pleasure to make a laborsaving device and a continual comfort to use it Time yourself at your work and never dwaddle It is a real pleasure to wash dishes rapidly scald nicely wipe deftly and then see how bright they look But when grease settled around the dishpan cold dishes and soggy towels thats drudgery To feel we are master of work is what rests us and we can be masters if we use all the we have first to see what not to do secondly how to do what
