are being made in our city Several of our citizens ara Jslightly attacked with the concrete sidewalk fever and we hope that it will become conta geous that every property owner in town will become so infested with it that he cannot rest until we cau walk from one end of our town to the other and every step taken be upon concrete I hope that neither of our physicians will recommend any cure for this malady except that every one put their concrete walks down at once At its regular meeting August 27th the city council passed the following ordinances A stock law prohibiting the running at lorge of hogs upon the streets at any time and also compelling own ers of cattle to put their stock up off the streets at night This is something that has bong been need ed in our town and J believe I voice the sentiment of the entire community when I say it meets with our hearty approval But there is another ordinance which was also passed by this board which in my opinion deserves more commendation from the citi zens than any other and that is the one known as the concrete side walk ordinance Of course we know that this will not meet with the hearty approval of every property owner and while there are some whom it will work a hardship on to a certain extent yet when they take into consideration the value it will add to their property we feel that they will see wherein it will be to their interest to build their sidewalks even if they have to born v the inontv at S Tier car interest to do so Now fellowci i zens lets not censure the beard tor doing what they ha ye done but rather praise

gathering here gave again an exhibition of valorous hearts Each year the ranks of the veterans are noticeably depleted but there were thousands in the line of the parade today and on each face as that line passed the reviewing stand there was the same look of pa triotic fervor that each year for more than forty years has made this annual parade the most impressive spectacle afforded to the people of this country- It was the crowning feature of the great encampment and everywhere along the line of march the veterans were greeted with the most respectful acclaim of the people An ExConfederates

marvelous thing it is to be able to stand in this distant state and say It is our country I came from the state of Kentucky to thank the people of the Maumee valley for this magnificent monument to our dead There were only 1800 men killed in the war of 1812 and of that number fate put it up to Kentucky to sacrifice 1000 of her sons My kinsmen were in that fort on that day of May 5 1813 and fought in the battles which saved this valley from conquest- It makes a heap of difference how you come to Ohio I came to Ohio once and you all took me and put me In the penitentiary I am here now as a happy guest I thought it a hard ship that God should decide that our cause should fail but I have since come to the conclusion that God knew better than I did for this is the great est grandest and most progressive na tion in the world I will say now that I thank God for the result although it was a bitter pill at the time I have come to bear to you the grateful thanks of Kentucky You men who have for forty years perse vered with zeal in the work of com memorating this ground deserve the gratitude not only of Kentucky but the gratitude of the whole country- It was the spirit generated by the men who fell here in defense of the Ohio settlements that made the armies of the North and South the greatest volunteer armies that ever rallied around a flag and cause braving death with a courage which only freemen can feel and that has made this tko great nation of history NEGROS BOLD ATTACK Enters Young Womans Bedroom In Home of Des Moines Mayor Des Moines Ia Sept 2Mlss Lizzie Agea

In Mt Vernon NARROW ESCAPE Sam Purcell who bought a portion of the Colyer farm in the Glades section had the experience a few days ago of being uiried alive Mr Purcell and another gentleman were digging a well and had gone down some tenor twelve feet when there was a cave in of the dirt and for a few moments Mr Purcell was covered over with more than three feet of dirt Fortunately Mr Purcell1 assistant had gone up out of the well or both men would mor than likely have been left there to their fate as no one was near who could have come to their rescue A large straw hat which Mr Purcell wore which bent downward and covered his face is probably all that saved him as it took his companion some little time to rescue him from his living burial Mr Willis Adams narrowly escaped being seriously injures last Sunday afternoon while re turning from Langford where he had gone to take Atty C C Williams to meet the Cincinnati passenger train Mr Adms was within two miles of Mt Vernon on his return when the coupling of the carriage in which he was iding cams loose and let the bed of the buggy drop This frightened the horse which is a very spirited animal anyway and he started to run Mr Adams held on until one of the reins gave way and then seeing there was nothing more he could do attempted to free himself and only did so after receiving several cuts and bruises about his limbs and body but none serious The handsome stanhope belonging to Mr Williams and which he had purchased only a short time ago was completely de molished GRADED SCHOOL Under the new act passed at the last session of the Legislature each and every county in the State where same is not already provided must with in two years from the passage of that act establish one or more graded schools in the county The law provides that the first must be established at the county seat and to us it seems that it is time that certain steps should be taken to ward the carrying into effect of this law It means too much for the county to be treated as a matter of minor importance Since a large majority are uninformed and are at a loss to know just the proper steps to take and the best manner to proceed we cherfully extend to anyone desiring to express his paperILet us push this matter to an early completion time is too preciousto wait till next year to do what should be done now 555555oeeee eeee eoseos

especially at ah exhibition held under Southern skies will be featured more than at any previous State Fair The new halfmile track now in process of construction when completed will be one of the fastest halfmile courses in the country and there is every indication for a firstclass harness race meeting this fall Four stake five purse and three gentlemens road races have been announced in addition to these there will be two running races each day so the Kentuckian who thinks that his days visit at a fair is incom plete without seeing a firstclass horse race will not be disappointed at

the three in five heat plan with a fiveheat limit and the purse races on the two in three heat plan It is the ultimate intention of the State Fair management to build a full mile track encircling the present halfmile course which if the hopes of these in charge of the racing program are realized will compare favorably with the best State Fair mile tracks in the country and Louisville will doubtless become one of the mcst popular training grounds in the country SPECIAL NIGHTS AT THE KENTUCKY STATE FAIR J V Beckman manager of the Re tail Merchants Association of Louis is general chairman
