PATKONS We wishour Iriends and patrons a puppy New Year anti we promise to try to make the Echo as enter taming during 1875 as we possibly cnn e feel that had it not been for the enterprise ol Word C Wilson no paper would have been publish cd in this county or section oft he State for several years to come and perhaps never It has been sufficiently proven that here in the mountains a paper can be published which will answer all practical purposes and will rout pare favorably with other county papers of the State A paper is an index of the enter prise and intelligence of time people whom it represents Consequently when str ngers read the Echo they sec that we have onlyour or two stores in the countyand none in the adjoining counties and that we have no country merchants It is natural that they should conclude that oitside of Ill rhnurvillr there are no merchants no hotels c and that even Barbourville with her big court house has but two or three merchants and can tint affonl a hotel at which the traveller can rest his weary limbs or find a warm cupof coffee We have no schools advertisedexcept the Boston High School therefore they can conclude Knox kan abiding place ol ignorance They see no land advertised for salt therefore theycan conclude that we have no law sums no courts no Master Commissioner but then they see the cards of our lawyeis and wonder how they live and the reason we have no land buyers is because we have no land setlersor if there be any it is neve known Our people should learn to net upon business principles they should advertise their business

ROCKCASTLE COUNTY Mt Vernon Ky Dec 28th 1S74 Cor Mountain Echo Christmas has come again mak ing everybody htiipyeven the regu lar topers seemed to be enjoying their party drops with renewed spirits A grand festival was given on Thursday evening time 24th inst for the benefit of Hickman Lodge No M2 I O of G T The proces sion was from Odd Fellows Hall toi the Newcomb House where the sup per was eaten The procession was followed by the Mt Vernon Cornet Band led by Mr G W Sever ance which added much to beauty and grandeur of the occasion At the supper there were about two hundred persons who ate and of the fragments left there were more than twelve baskets full There were many of Kockcastlcs fairest flowers and gayest beaux present who added much to the pleasure of the evening and encouraged the cause of temperance ant the abolishing of the foul destroyer nobnlest and best men down to a rank o low degree and our strongest men down to a state of weakness and appeaancedowngrave After supper was over and al partakennicely spread before them and listen ed to a few tunes well suited to tip occasion they then dispersed all ing happy and strange after eatin so supperThen immediately after the pleasures already enjoyed a fancy fhop given at MrC W Adam where many of thefuir aird gay spent the most of the time in merri menu On Friday night then wis anrth cr hop given at Mr Adams which was Well attended by the goy and fair We think if Christmas would come again pretty soon that it would help the County Court lank up some fwd furnish the preachers with some thing to do on Thursday Wish it would come On Saturday there was a broth ers dinner at Mr Willis Adams at which he and his six brothers ate probably the first dinner they had eaten together for many years

Cucil RUBBER SLAIN The man whom Bill Dillion shot at Livingston proved to be one of the robbers who robbed a hank at Huntington W Vu There were four of them when the hank was robbed and they were foil Recd as far as Owsley county where they abandoned their horses Irom correspondence Irom Beattyville and Booneville it seems that the robbers separated some where between those places going in twos Dillion says that he saw four mcn just before wentraround the back of his store after which he did not see them nor did they engage in the light It is DOS sible that those two may have been pilots for had they been the confederates ot the two engaged in the light with Dillions it is hardly post sible that they would not have to the rescue Concerning these robbers there arc several rumors and various statements made by par tics in the neighborhood Pine Hill which appear at variance with the other and are difficult to reconcile if they all be true The Cashier of the bank which was robbed came to Livingston and identified the wound eaman as the leader of the robbers Detective Blith of Louisville thinks the robbers are the Jameses and Youngers of Missouri iand that the wounded man was Jesse James and Hts companion Cole Younger On Sunday about ten oclock the wounded robber diedand wets buried at the Greshnm grave red He said nothing as to who he was andwhere hg vedand refused to make any revelation as to his past tile He died the possessor of the secrets of his own life and a stranger in a strange land again showing that the way of the transgressor is hard The Dillions deserve great credit for thus aiding to breakup the most dangerous gang of out laws in the whole country Echo Sept 24th 1875 Commisicounty for distribution two hundred extra thefr ex ample is worthy

BEAUTIFUL SNOW Written by the Man Who Fell on the Sidewalk Oh say did you see by the dawns early light the snow that is black when it ought to be white The stuff that decended and lay under foot and mussed up the landscape like great gobs of soot The kiddies are smiling the grownups are not but weve got to have weather whether frigid or hot The poet would say that Old Winters hand had taken a brush and painted the land a glori ous white and frosted the lamps Not being a poet we hasten to say as we glance out of doors and sum up the day that winter was striken with bad writers cramps The teamsters are cursingas their t t t fIJ fp horses fall The glossy silk hat meets the icecentered ball The streets are not white but covered sleet The slush makes you mad by caressing your leet Weve oft read the lines on lleautiful Snow Then we slip and fall down and start swearing so that the snow almost melts from the warmth of our talk then we go get a hatchet to clean the sidewalk Now snow may be fine in books or in plays or to fill in the pictute of Ye Olden Days but we hasten to say with a frostbitten a mouth that if this snowstorm keeps r up well take a trip South Professional Cards
