string of limbless cedar trees along a country hillside In most every city of any size the city requires this done and the telephone people are not in the least slow to comply with the law for the painting of the poles protects them and guarantees many more years of use While we have become somewhat accustomed to their looks ourselves to strangers it seems as though some one had neglected their

located if the property could be bought at a reasonable figure because of the central location and con venience of access as well as the facilities for approach both from the front and rear The building we are informed will be three stories high with one storeroom and an opera house on the first floor and lodgerooms on the second and third This is a movement which we have long advo cated and which we arc glad to see the Masons take hold of First because of the increased beauty of the city resulting from the erection of such a building on our Main street Second because the Masons are the local representatives of the oldest Fraternal order in existence and are abund antly able to carry the project to final completion We heartily commend this great organ ization for its determination to erect a building which will afford them a home of which they may well be proudand which will be worthy of the traditions of their order Finally let us say that if others will follow the lead of the

has in use 30 incubators which are heated by steam and 90 days after the chicken has been hatched it is on its way to Boston in a refrigerator car as a two pound broiler This one party whose plant uses up many acres of ground sells each year one hundred thousand of these broilers to Eastern markets as well as seventy three thousand dozen of eggs Aside from the slaughtering of the chickens hatched in the incubator this party buys SawyersHORSE HOTEL Is the best place in the city to board your horse RATES VERY RE8OND1E J R Sawyer PROPRIETOR chickens in car load lots of five and ten daily which are fattened by the new process The first thing to be done to a newly arrived car of chick ens is to place them in what is called the greasing room where each one is greased and kept so for three days that all vermin may be killed and the chicken made healthy After that they are taken to the stuffing room where 35 men are in charge of machines Upon each machine there is a small tube and this tube is inserted in the craw of the chicken and the craw is filled with food and chemicals After 15 days of this man ner of feeding the fowl is fat having gained from three to four and a half pounds and is ready for the slaughter house from there to the cold storage and thence to Eastern markets An average daily shipment from that place is six tons A machine fattening house has recently been established near Topeka Kas with a slaught ering capacity of 5000 a day The gentleman states that there is one man in Laughlins employ who can fatten 500 chickens a day The average man only

going up and down every side street in the city 00up and down stairs and then into some dark and dreary hole in the wall to spend a few hours at their game only to learn after the game is started that they have been watched with an eagle eye and if not arrested then and there their names are report ed to the grand jury and they are indicted and brought into court and fined twentyfive or fifty dollars when we have right here on Main street a gaming room in which more money is won and lost in a day than was ever lost over any poker table in the city Again when these poker play 40 ers have a game it is conduct ed in a most quiet manner no one but the players are pe- mitted in the room no drunk en men are there to use pro boysithere a boy in this city is there a man in this city or in fact a lady who has not heard even from the sidewalks men cry out nickel2do or nickeledont These bet tors are as a rule niggers and boys who have only small amounts to gamble with while older ones cry out their wil lingness to wager anywhere from two to twenty dollars On Monday while passing this place I heard one man cry out Ill bet any s ofa b twenty dollars to fifteen that I can knock a baby Now is not that nice lan guage for your mother sister wife daughter or little boy to listen to while walking the along the main thoroughfare of our little city Boys are attracted to this place by the music and excitement of bet ting and try as hard as he J may to keep the little fellows out the manager finds that they will mix up with the 40 crowd and bet their nickels on the fall of one of the babies P Personally we like the man ager of this game and have no desire to do him an injus tice but we believe we are voicing the sentiments of eve ry lawabiding citizen of the city in calling the attention of the city officials to this open game It is not a game of sci ence but one upon which money is won and lost It is so open that it is bound to have its bearing upon the young boys of the city It brings about a gathering of a certain element of white peo ple and niggers that guar antees business in our courts sooner or later We are no friends of gambling when it is conducted by men who even follow it as a business or for pleasure and conduct it in a quiet manner and we do hon estly and candidly believe that if there is to be license issued for the operation of this game there should be no hesitancy on the part of our city officials in issuing them to the poker player the operator of the faro game or the operator of the roulette wheel When those licenses are granted set a slot machine against each lamp post and across each road en tering the city suspend a large sign to read WIDE OPEN came out last all up the the of the a to an is but room for ten more of the is more to be

operahouse that will not only be a credit to our city but to any city of three times our population the general opinion is that the Masonic order has a bank ac count which is unlimited and all they have to do is to select the plan of the archi tect let the contract and when the work is completed give a check for the amount and charge it up as pin money Far from this We are told by some of the leading mem bers of the order that the building is to be erected by popular subscription among their members and while con tribution will not be generally solicited except among their members such business men and people on the outside as have an interest in the improving of the town and benefit that all will receive from the erecting of it are at perfect liberty to make con tributions and such will be greatly appreciated Would it not be a good idea for some business man or citizen not a member of the order to call on the business men and prop ert owners of the city and give them an opportunity to assist in and insure the erect ing of the building at an early date We do not believe that there is anyone of either class who would not feel that it is to his interest to give and give

seventyone years ago next Sunday the Father of this country first opened his eyes to the light of this world and so enduring and wide spread is his fame that in every civilized countryon earth this day will be cel ebrated in some manner Min isters of the gospel will dwell with fervor on his religious life in their sermons States men and politicians will laud his civil virtues and extol his political ideas at the formal banquet and the scarcely less formal public dinner school teachers on Friday or Saturday will speak to their pupils of his child life and the gradual development of those qualities of heart and brain which in later years made him the approachable character he was the typical soldier the model citizen the prophetic states man and the honest politician And it is well that all these things should be done but it would be far better if all those having in charge the welfare of the nation founded by his genius and statesmanship would lay to heart and put into practice the suggestions made in his farewelladdress for insuring the perpetuity the prosperity and the happi ness of this people Could this be done we would have no more of the unseemly striving for mere party advan tage which has disgraced so many of our States in the last five years Bribery corruption and ring rule would be things of the past class legislation would be heard of no more corporations

February 100- 3Announcements For Representative Pa eareauthorizedtoannouncey dldatefor anwnampion Last week a gentleman from Alton came to me and wanted to know what money it would take to buy my paper or rather my editorial column for Mr J B Chenault in his race for State Auditor He stated that he had been sent to me by other parties and was not interested in the least himselfand I believe his statements about that part of the matter for I had already learned that a certain gentle man of Alton had called to see me a few days previous after having been unsuccessful in his attempt to buy Mr Haw kins of the News I do not know Mr Chenault only through an introduction to him on our streets here by Mr Hiter Crockett of Frankfort I was favorably impressed with him and being a great friend of Mr Crocketts I promised him my vote in his race But if he or his work ers think that they can go about buying up newspaper editors like sheep they have missed their guess While I have at all times since the starting of this paper re frained from voicing the senti ments of any party or candi date and expect to do the same in the future I cannot but remember the insult that Mr Chenaults workers have thrown at me and I am confi dent that they have gained little and my memory will be refreshed of their attempt to buy up the press of this county when I read the name of Judge- S W Hager on the ballot handed me by the clerk of the election on the morning May 9th ofI We have repeatedly sug gested to the ministers and deacons of the many churches of our city that they furnish us each week with the name of minister subject and in fact any other announce ments that would be of inter est to the churchgoing people of the city We get their promises but that is all and no one knows when they go to church on Sunday whether the regular minister or a visi tor is to occupy the pulpit what subject has been chosen or in fact anything else re garding the doings at Gods house These are matters that the public are interested in and so long as we are only too glad to give the space nec essary it does look like the church workers should give the matter some thought This shall be our last request and if you do not get the an nouncements from now on remember that it is through no fault of ours but the fault of insufficient interest taken by the ministers and church workers in not making more of an effort to get the people out to worship on Sunday or at prayermeetings during the week Mr W O Jones who was for some time located here was in town Saturday to see his old friends Mr Jones is one of the best trainers of running horses in the State and at present has charge of McBrayer Moores string of fast ones Bill is much in love with Lawrenceburg and his greatest wish is to be able to spend the rest of his days here and he says that should fate so make that impossible and death overtake him he wants to be buried here by those friends he loves so well A Richmond correspondent for a Louisville paper states that while two men were drunk one shot the other to death and then killed him self and then the writer adds that the cause of killing was unknown Looks to us that any sane man would not need more than three guesses at that problem Each days advertising has the accumulated force of all that have gone before Dont spend twenty cents for a four line local and expect it to crowd

wound on his hand made by a rabid dog some days past When the stone was applied it adhered one hour and forty week we published an article and in fact there has scarcely been an issue of this paper gotten out in the three months it has been issued that has not contained an arti cle about people being bitten by mad dogs Is it not high time that the good people of the county shoulder arms and go on a dog hunt and kill everyone to be found The time of year is now near at hand for the reports to be com ing in of sheep being killed and now would be a good time to put a stop to such losses You may have dogs that you are fond of and by them like by your children you think there is no wrong that they could do Both have happened People who have dogs of value should keep them chain ed or housed

got into a fight over a game of craps here in town and the cuss words were freely passed until the street was reached when one negro whose name is said to be McKee picked up a brick and told the two who were following him up to cease their pursuit This they failed to do and he let fly the brick which struck one of the negroes in the head and bound ed over to the cranium of the other which sent
