had been killed While the information was given to us as reliable we felt no hesitancy in offering odds of 100 to on Life plac ing Death in the field at long odds Notwithstanding the strong tip that was out on Death the wise looked upon Life as a sure thing and t would not even place money on Death to show Were it true that the good die young we would ly remember Toni as an infant for if there ever was a good for nothing nigger on earth it is Tom Allen lie Bro Geo O Barnes and John Alexander Dowey right or wrong about the end of all things being near at hand we are willing to wager a small amount that Toni never dies On the evening mentioned Tom and Harry De Bond had some difficulty in Duncans loon and when Toni started up Main street he was over taken by Harry and Clarence Miller who with beer bottles as racquets and Toms head as a ball gave a very fine exhibi tion of pingpong While Toms head and face were bad ly cut and mashed it in no way interfered with him in be ing out on the streets Saturday morning working the country trade Harry De Bond has made several unsuccessful attempts to represent Ander- sonv county in Frankfort Pen itentiary having made the race once each on the

he meets every person with whom he has business engagements and the person who wishes to purchase fifty cents worth of coal or a dollars worth of lumber or brick is made the recipient of the same courtesies as are extend ed to those whose purchases mount up into the hundreds of dollars In 1896 Mr Thurman was married to Miss Della Beard the only child of Mr and Mrs C M Beard of Fisherville her father being one of the most prominent citizens of Jefferson county and he is now the father of four of the bright est little childrenone son and three daughtersto be found in this county In his home

the genuine old fashioned Kentucky hospitality He is a deacon in the Bap tist church a prominent son and an active member of both the Knights of the Mae cabees and the Ancient Order of United Workmen

firesides will be made hap py with the small reminders of parental love which in the total amount will be commen surate with the depth of the pocketbook or the length of the bank account of

re J membrance or with no thought of Him whose natal day we celebrate all the world becomes akin whet personal J jealousies or personal grievances are temporarily laid aside and when all seek for one day to carry into actual practice the precepts of the Golden Rule it occurs to us that the good people of this little city who have been so signally favored during the year just closing should take special pains to see to it that none of Gods poor in our midst are left without some cause for joy on this day While there are perhaps as few among us in proportion to the total population who are unable to provide for hcIState yet that there are such among us is well known to all There are those whose gifts to their little families will consist of only a stickof red candy and perhaps whose little children will not have even this much to gladden their hearts There are those who on this day will have no change from the accustomed meal of cornbread and salt bacon for their Christmas din ner There are those who while their schoolmates will revel in the possession of pres ents without number of new clothing new sleds new dolls new toys old new books will shed tears of sorrow and dis appointment because Santa Claus has passed them by in his annual journey and who perhaps will have cause to look upon this as a day of en joyment intended only for those who have rich or pros perous parents And yet there is much that might be done to bring a gleam of sunshine into the lives of these who suffer without fault on their own part A few candies oranges mid simple toys judiciously distributed among them while they are sleeping the sleep of innocent childhood a few pairs of shoes for naked little feet a few suits of clothing for those whose parents arc not able to buy a turkey

Old Joe Old Taylor Old Prentice Cedar Brook J P Rlpy McKenna Etc A TIGHT SHOE In the Anderson News last week there appeared a letter from President Jenkins of the Kentucky University containing these somewhat remarka ble sentences I understand that in some paper of Ander son county not yours there recently appeared an article concerning the gift of Jas R York founding a scholarship in Kentucky University The article in question Iam told represented that Mr York was dissatisfied with his gift We presume that IT is the paper referred to by Dr Jen kins but as to how he got the impression that we said or even intimated in the Mod ern Fable in our first issue that Mr York was dissatisfied with his gift we do not know for there is not a single word in the article which would jus tify any such conclusion On the contrary we have now Clean Shop Clean Towels Clean Mugs Clean Workmen Clean Shave Clean Trade Thats Hartman and have always had the im pression that Mr York who is one of our most respected citi zens is not only thoroughly satisfied with his actions in the matter but that he con scientiously believed he had lone the best thing with his only object we had in view in the publication of the article in question was to call attention to the fact that there is much that could be lone nearer home by generous do nations for the education of the children of the poor in the only colleges or universities they will ever seeTHE COM MON SCHOOLS We are no enemies of the college or the university and are as proud of the success of these institutions in our State as any citizen can be but we are equally friendly to that in stitution of learning to which the vast majority of the chil dren of the State must look for their entire preparation for fu ture citizenship and may be pardoned ifwc express the hope that some of our more wealthy citizens instead of giving to institutions which arc already richly endowed will use a portion of their wealth to provide comfortable schoolhouses for that boy and girl who will never see the side of either college or uni versity Here is indeed a field for the exercise of the generosity of the man or wo man who would be remember ed
