Nineteen years ago a cold spell came past the middle of April and bit down to the ground all the oats sown and froze out all the young clover. Ice on tho creeks froze to allow ice houses tilled for the first time that year, the weather being colder than any time of the winter. It was cool oft and on up to May 20th when we awoke on that morning to find a deep snow had fallen which killed all the fruit and wrought destruction to our gardens. We do not anticipate a repetition of this happening, but something like it may occur, as the unexpected is always taking place, and we should not be surprised at similar weather to that e CLAY OITY, K Y.ffiR U K SD A Y , AV1UL 10, JOlH.

He bases his arThomas at' one time introduced a bill in the Li'g.slatilre to abolish the Railroad Commission in this State, and that Governor Beckham is employed us attorney for the L. & N. Railroad. Stanley might have further noted that Senator Thomas at the" last session of the Legislature introduced, and worked hard for a bill to repeal the law that prohibits one railroad from buying out its provided its competitor is not' more than one hundred miles in length. This bill was in the sole interest of the L. &.. N It was designed to ullow the L. & N. buy the Frankfort and Cin cinnati" road which runs from Frankfort to Paris. The L. & N. had bought this road once bill the sale was annulled by the Court of Appeals. The Times knows that Gov.

Another fact, however, is that it has been clearly demon-tftratethat every important in this country can live and flourish without the slightest bit of tariff protection.
