SIGNAL Circuit Court convened Monday with the usual large crowdof hard yoemanry The bone and sinew of the country Yes Kings and princes they may flourish Or thv may lack r Abreath can m kethemIAs a breath hatlfiriade But a bold peasantry Their countrys hope and pride When once destroyed can never be supplied The crowd in the Court house would compare favorably with the same number of men in Lincoln with perhaps less money in the bank but more in their pockets The able Jurist Judge Morrow is on the bench and gave the grand jury an able exposition of the law I am proud to know that I read law under the instructions fa Judge as able and famous for his learning I believe all the good law I know I learned from Judge Mor row and the bad I have imbibed from such men as Blackstone Goke and Lyttletou 1 dont know of but one point upon which the learned Judge and I differ and that is upon this1 point I assume that a grand jury isa mere accus ing jury to enquire whether or not 4 ere be sufficient evidence orV ijof against the accused to call upon him to answer before a ury before the Judgi Often trialI alf the witnesscs are before the rand jury and not more than l lfl- thetestimony from them and even before the trial jury it sometimes takes the shrewdest Commonwealths Attorney to extort the truth from the reluctant lips ofa dishonest witness If the grand iury have sufficient evidence before them to justify an indictment the defendant should be called upon to answer before the Judge and trial jury But if the grand jury do not believe but not beyond a reasocable doubt there is sufficient evidence to warrant a Conviction they should not indict But the reasonable doubt that ac quits so many guilty men prevails alone before the petit jury But several other Circuit Judges are with fudge Morrow though none so able as he They may be ight and Blackstone and I and the old authors inav be wrong rj Well I am delighted with this beautiful mountain city their true brave loyal people their fine school and College their learned Professors their manly pupils and the beautiful buds of sweet womanhood are a delight to the eye If there is an ugly woman in this town she always

improving at this writing A little threeyearold son of Jas Paynes caught fire Sunday even ing while its mother was milking and would no doubt have burned to death had not another seven yearold brother thrown water on him and screamed fbr help He is now gettingalong nicely W R HENDERSON A Noble Boy Passes Away To live is to die but death often comes when least expected The people of our little town were made to weep on yesterday morn inlTT when Dr Lawrence broke the news that Willie is dying Death is sad in any form but sader still when a yonng man just in the bloom of young manhood and had before him as bright a future as this one and then be cut down He was the eldest son of Mr and Mrs David Henderson was 22 years old the rothof last August graduated from the col lege here last June and had taught two public schools in the county While he had ntver as yet identi fied himself with any religious de nomination his every day walk proved him to be a Christian and there is no doubt but that there avails him a golden crown AI though he was sick about two weeks yet it was only thought by the family and his friends to be a severe attack of the grip and that he would soon be alright again but on Monday the doctor dis covered that it was going into pneumonia on Tuesday he began to grow worse and nothing the physician could do would bring any relief but continued to grow worse until the end came at 730 yesterday morning The burial will take place at the Lewis burying ground today r FROM BRODHEAD These are the first lines I have ever written for the Signal I have been in Kentucky three year to day have lived iu Rockcastle county during the time am a sub scriber to the Signal and enjoy reading it very much I am inter ested in the good of the great State have tried to be as loyal and brave as the true Kentuckian rejoice in every art and effot to make her people better In reading the sketch in the last issue of the Sig nal concerning the acts of Mrs Carrie Nation in her work of des troying saloons I am persuaded to ask permission cf the writen if he will not take a different view of the subject We ate bound to be lieve that her intentions are good As unreasonable as it seems for a woman to attempt to save a nation from such a course it is no more unreasonable than it seemed for Christ to attempt to save the world though it is to believed that Christ lived longer and succeeded better than Mrs Nation perhaps will for no doubt there are plenty of cow ards who like Judas Iscariot would not only put Christ to death but would sell the souls of the human race for a few dollars Be it a legitimate business or not it is no more the intention of God for this the greatest of nations the fairest of lands inhabited by the proudest and test of humanity to be blight ed by this great evil than it was Christs intention for his house of prayer to be made a den of thieves What do you tliink of Christ going into k money temple driving out the changers turning over the table and talking like a man who meant business They were doing a more honorable business than sa loon keepers If every mother whose life has been destroyed whose home has been blighted and whose husband and sons have been driven to the grave and to perdition could join Mrs Nation in her un dertaking there would be an army strong enough to sweep every saw loon from the face d the earth and T believe that the strongest voice that Heaven could raise would claim such a victory If the worstI drunkard in the land could be lseelw1atu i twelve months of which a saloon wagthe cause hp would sure ly scotch his way of doing and as Buck Varnon says hoist his head and go the other direction as fast as he could tJ 1 9 r7frvutiintLaxativethe remedy that cures a e ay BARGAINS ATFRANK JONES
