oaUIUArr MT I am but not When papa sees me was the reply Bueh conversations lead us to wonder bow long the people will continue to be content to run to the same old rut our forefathers were content togo in The past has held many errors which modern thought and broader knowledge is bringing to ligfit and as newer and better modes of living and of ecjoy Ing ones self cOmes to tha front they rightly claim our best attention and influence There is danger of that too cautious spirit which resists all change because the past has been good enough Of course there will probably always be some one who will decry tWwheol and perhaps prevent thojse in their own household from enjoying it This we must expect for In every household there is always some oae to cling to what grandmother dul But we say let lovers of tho wheel strive to eradicate the idea that the wheel is not for womans useIt is largely through womans influ once that this prejudice will be laid aside and the time come when

Capt James Sandusky in what is now known as Washington County The region south and west of the Kentucky River was one entire area of canebrakes with the exception of the territory lying west of the Muldraughs whichwas barren NO vegetation whatever grew in this section with the exception of a few shrubs now and then to be seen dotted here and there In the spring of 1775 Isaac Cox and several Baptists Presbyterians and Catholic families located lonCoxs Creek in Nelson County yIn the Fall t of that year the Catholic emigrants went farther up through the then wilderness of Kentucky and settled upon the waters of Pottingers Creek and Hardins Creek In the spring of 76 several- Presbvterinn families from the Coxs Creekset tlement nioved upon the little Beech Fork and Mill Creek SanduskysStationthe first settlement in Washington County The fort was on Pleasant Run and was occupied by Turn and his family for about eight years when lhe reproved to Bourbon County and settledon Cane ilidge Capt Jacob Sandusky who was a brother of the first settler of the county was with Harrod at Harrods Station when that fort was first established Other settlements were t afterwards made in various portions of the county which up to 1792 was a part of Nelson One of the oldest settlements next to Sandus kYswason the Mackville turnpike just at the A ofedge Springfield Washington County was formed from Nelson in 1792and named in honor of General George Washington It was the tenth countyadmitted 4r in the State General Washington was President t at the time of the formation of the county and upon learning that the county had been named for him he wrqte a letter and thanked the people for the honor The county is situated near the center of tire State in what is known as the Bluegrass section It is undoubtedly one of the best I adapted to the growthof small cereals in the Commonwealth especially is it so with tobacco wheat oats rye corn and other small grain THe northern portion of the county is dunned by Salt River and other streams flowing within its boundaries are Little Run Long Lick Little Beech Fork Cartwright Hardin and Thomp i sonte Creek The principal cities and towns in- the county are Springfield which is the county t seat having population of 1500 Brownsburg Antioch Beech Fork Muckvilje Fredericks town Willisburgh Beech Land Hadesville Sharpsburgh anti several other important and thriving little towns The beautiful town of Springfield was estab jished in 1793 just one year after the formation- of the county and recQived its name on account of a fine spring near by There are few towns iiii the State that consider better and more in vitingto the emigrant seeking a fine healthy and 4business location Springfield has as many fine business houses beautiful

ninety yijars ago His days when not cm ployed in the holy offices of religion attending to the Wants ofsome group of Catholics gathered tqgcthcr by reason of his advent amongst them were spent in the

distinction His consecration took place at Saint Rose on the 13th day of December J822 and the vast church as it was then considered was not large cnoughto aecomnodatc the multi tude assembled Thus was Saint Roses Burch the scene of the second episcopal consecration that had taken place in the Vest as1 about ten years previous it had been the scene of the first oidinatioif to the priesthood witnessed in the whole territoryof the West The missionary labors of Father Fenwick were not discontinued but perhaps rather increased because of his advancement to the episcopal dig tt lr x 0 7i JUDO W SELECMAN nity The fieldof his operations and that of his brethren at Saint Rose was enlarged extending throughout the country north of the Ohio River Through his efforts a new foundation of the order was established in the wilds of Ohio neilr where nosy stands the village of Spmelset And as Saint Roses is justly considered the cradle of Catholicity jn the State of Kentucky so is Saint Josephsthe Ohio tmndattonthe nursery of religion in that State The following extract from the Catholic Telegraph will give us some idea of the nature of the missionary labors of the fathers at St Roses Father Fenwlcks first visit to Ohio was in 1810 Near Somerset he found three Catholic families Who were occupied in clearing lands and who had not seen a priest for ten years Father Fenwick heard at a ties lance the stroke of the axe interrupting the silence of the forest and fol t lciwngthesolll1clus tofind that the 33 workmen were Catholics The joyof the people was so great the good missionary could never recall tile circumstances without- experienenig the greatest consola tion In thus dwell ing on the revered memory of Father Fen wick the writer ant ici to the year 1809 At that time a novitiate or school of training for candidates the Order was opened at Saint Rises The first subjects were taken from the school alreadyj established and the life ofto pupil was exchanged by thorn for the austeritiQSof the life of axreligiotis They put oil the Dominican t habit and were subjected to the rules of the Order whilst hcy devoted certain hours of the day to manual labor Tlje then superior Father Wilson himself one otthe most scholarly and learned men df his tiue saw that the great ntfed of the church in thi country was a highly d ic tCd unclJUfipcrlrj trained clergy hence

owe much and especially the great Southland to this road firth good it has done in spurringup our towns amidcities to the commerce of the world Without such an outlet our property would not increase in value and every line of business would be tb a great extent handicapped by inadequate facilities to meet the requirements of the present time Much prejudice exists against all railroads and most of it emanates from people who do not give any study to the railro d question A railroad has much to contend with and dues more toadvance the interests of the common people than any other agency It doubly increases the value of the poormaus farm it gives him transportation which if the railrbaddidnot exist would nec essarily increase the price of what he buYs and lessen the sales of what he raises In the same t nit applies to towns and cities It pays more taxes than any other institution t and is held responsible for I everything good or bad This is neither just not fair r1 I ask those
