county very near our line our town and county peo pie have felt quite a little un easiness about the spreading of the dread disease anti the report has frequently been started during the past week that there was a number of cases in our own county This we are glad to say is false Last week David Searcy who lives a few miles from town on the Camden road was taken sick and the attending physi cian thought that some symp toms of the disease existed and at once every precaution was taken to prevent its spread in case it developed in to smallpox The house was at once quarantined and Mr James Hawkins was sent there as a nurse to care for Mr Searcy As said this has no yet been pronounced small pox and there is not today a case of it in the county and no alarm whatever need be felt Sheriff J R Paxton Tues day received a check front the Southern Railway Co fo S270364 the amount due thcI county on franchise tax 1896 to 1002 inclusive The total amount paid on for those years was S541 39552

Druggist First in the State By the holding of our press last Wednesday the last day of the old year old by the energy and promptness of the efficient force at the Lawrence burg Bank one hour after they closed their books on the business of the day we had printed and ready for the many readers of our paper the com plete and lengthy statement which the law requires pub lished in the paper of the coun ty having the largest county circulation which is of course the reason that IT DID IT We receive at this office most all papers published in Central Kentucky and we are unable to find where any other bank in the State showed the promptness of this one From the enormous amount of business transacted by them and the excellent showing they are making one cannot blame them for being anxious to

Telephone Company to the National Trust Compa ny of Louisville and covering all the Companys proper ty in tile states of Indiana Ohio Kentucky and Tennes see Taking out the amount of this mortgage leaves only the sum of S78 M10 on derson county property and this small sum in mortgages on over 4000000 worth of property speaks volumes for tile prosperity of our people The old Salt House has during the past week been re paired and renovated until it now be well called the new Galt House The house has been taken charge of by Jas Holman the popular and commodating innkeeper and it is safe

actors in the play as they stated were Mr and Mrs John Gudgell and Reuben Wright the hired man accused by the husbandof paying more attention to Mrs Gudgell than to his work on the farm On Wednesday morning Wright went to the barn to do his feeding and Mrs Gwlgell soon afterwards went out to get cobs with which to start a ThisIstable after Wright hut tile latter saw him coming and trade his

this county went to Indiana learn the particulars of the unpleasant affair and Mrs Judge will bring suit for a divorce The people of Franklin speak in high terms of Mrs Gudgell and say that she is

Stamp Deputy in this city for the month end ing December 02 amount ed to 813J555 SI which is an increase of S1942910 over December 01 The collections for the entire year aggre gate the enormous sum of 5136101568 a slight decrease durIilast twelve years the collections in this office have aver aged 817500000 making more than twenty millions of dollars collected in this coun ty in but little more than a decade When it is rembered that this enormous amount of money represents only the col lections on whisky released from bond and that all the li cense taxes for wholesale and retail dealers and all taxes and licenses for dealers in tobacco are paid directly to the Collec tor at Danville one can have some idea of the importance of the office in this city Some years ago the citizens started a movement to secure such a government building in this city as would afford ade quate accommodations for the government officials located here and Congressman Gil bert presented a bill in Con gress asking for an appropria tion of 875000 to be applied for that purpose For some reason or other the passage of this bill has been pushed aside at each session of Congress but Mr Gilbert assured the people of this county during his last canvass that he felt sure of obtaining an appropri ation at this session He in turn wasassured by the citizens that every assistance would be given him that was possible and that both the city and county stood ready to send a committee to Washing ton to aid him in pushing the bill and it was certainly un derstood here that as soon as Congress met we should hear from Mr Gilbert But Con gress has been in session for a whole month and as yet not one word has been received from him This is a short session and if Mr Gilbert proposes to redeem the prom ises made to our people it is high time he is getting down to business What is the mat ter Mr Gilbert Is Uncle Sam so poor that he is unable to provide such accommoda tions for his servants as their business demands or is he so busy attending to the affairs of the Dago and Spaniard in Venezuela that he has no time for his own business The Kentucky Distilleries and Warehouse Company on Monday

started the report here that a two horse wagon and two mules as well as the driver who started from this place to Alton were lost in the turn pike and that several rescuing parties had made every attempt to get them out but all efforts to reach the place of the acci dent proved fruitless the roads being in such a condi tion that the trip would be most hazardous This state ment we find to be untrue Many wagons have made the trip from herc to Alton John sonville Van Buren McBrayer and Tyrone driven by men who took their lives in their hands and none of them who lived to make the return trip report the mud deeper than four feet Some with whom we have talked regarding the roads say that they are not in so bad a fix as reported for there are many places along the road where the mud is not t deeper than two and a half feet So far as the report ing started that one can not tell where the roads are we find that to be untrue and is a report started no doubt to inIshow our county officials up a bad light There was noItrouble whatever about ing where the roads were fore the county bought them and took them away we judge shortly after the pur chase was made for they have never been seen since All you have to do to travel the same route as you did when we had pikes is to follow the yellow streak that is between the fences along the route As soon as the weather gets as warm here as it now is in Franklin and other counties surrounding us efforts will be made to repair the roads Last week there were at least twentyfive men working on the road between Farmdalc and Frankfort

of the property on Main street that was so well thought of as a suitable location for the Ma sonic Home and Operahouse which is to be built stating that since she has learned for what the property is wanted she has decided to reduce the price from 4000 to 2500 At this price we learn that the Masons are thinking most strongly of accepting While other property on Court and Woodford streets have been offered them at a much lower price many of them are of the opinion that the Shipman property would be far better for the erecting of business rooms on the first floor lodge rooms above and the opera house in the rear The com mittee has the matter under advisement and at the next meeting of the order the de cision will be made Last weekwe suggested that the Lawrenceburg Fire Department be reorganized and suggested that Mr S R Houser who had shown him self a fire fighter be named as chief of the department We are glad to say that at the last meeting of the city coun cil they were unanimous in favor of making Mr Houser chief of the department While Mr Houser has only been in our city a short while he has shown himself alive to the possibilities of the city and a hard worker for

James killed the cashier of the Rus sellville bank in their famous raid upon that city The gen tleman who presented the pis tol to Mr Sam Houscr the present owner was one of the members of the famous gang of guerillas called Quantrells men which so terrorized the people of this State during war times Mr Houser car ried the pistol with him on his trip some years past to Alaska and Siberia but with

ashamed of yourselves to stand around like a lot of cigar store Indians and permit the young ladies of the city to pay the expenses of a hop for your pleasure when you have con tributed so little for their pleasure in the past A most appropriate gift to each of you would be an alarm clock that you might awake Should any of your friends take this advice we would suggest that they wind the clock

papers in the city and a great many are of the mind that we have never been given the right to enter our paper in the post office at the newspaper rate and it is for that reason we have to deliver
