Jn Management of Fiscal Affairs and Will Vote Democratic Ticket This fallJI I YE IY LOW TAX RATE t 1Ata meeting of the Democratic County Campaign CommitteE held here last Saturday afternoon reports were heard from every precinct in the county and it will doubtless be of interest to Democrats to know that the party was never in a better shape than now A poll of the county shows a Democratic disaffection of less extent than has existed in any campaign for yeats and it is gratifying to know that a large 11thesay they can see no reason for voting against the men who have done so much for the taxpayers of Washington county and who have placed thecounty in a where it is recognized by the Mates Auditor as one of the very few perfectly managed and wellfinanced counties in Kentucky The taxpayers of Washington county know how the county stood eight or ten ygars ago they know that taxes were znuch higher then than now and that the countyto use a slang phrasewas heels over head in debt The Sun believes the Republicans will refuse to nominate a ticket The- Republican leaders of the county are men of more than ordinary political sagacity and we are quite sure that they have given the matter sober thought and see that withthe admir rble record made by the Democratic officials during the past seven years no nominations ought to be made and forth potent reason it is difficult to find available men who are willing to enter the race These officials during the period noted above have wiped out an in i debtedness against the county of 60000 Beside paying off this large debt the officials have built more bridges and made more internal improvements than was ever known before The county is now on a cash basis every nickel of indebtedness being promptly met At a regular meeting of the Fiscal Court held last April the tax rate for=the county was fixed at 50 cents for all purposes Onehalf of the amount was levied for turnpikes and bridges and out of the remaining 25 cents 5 cents was appropriated for dirt roads Thus f 4 it will be seen that our fiseal affairs are being conducted in such a way as to put money into the pockets of the people JJToo much can not be said in praise of our Fiscal Court It is com posed of safe reliable men men who know how to manage in a manner which will result in lower taxes Then the question CAN WE AFFORD TO REMOVE SUCH A COURT Can we afford to remove such officials as we now have We believe that a large majority of the voters of the county now stand ready to answer NO Here is a thought for you During the past seven years the county rate has been lowered 30 cents We have men of influence at the head of our county affairs men whose advice is listened to and whose opinion- are respected by our State officials Every taxpayer in the county remem bers the excellent work accomplished a before the State Board of Equalization last July by County Attorney T Scott Mayes Representative W D Clay brooke and County Treasurer Robert Noe The reduction of 30 cents in the tax rate means a reduction of 10500 in taxes and that 20 per cent raise which our representatives before the State Board lifted means sin addition d saving to the taxpayers oft the county of over 5000 As we said in the beginning we lieve the Republicans after having given this matter due consideration will decline to nominate realizing tha there are no reasons to present to the voters as to why a change should be made in the management of our fiscal affairs Money saved to the Demo cratic taxpayer is also money saved to the Republican taxpayer and tiers are s many stanch Republicans in Washington county who will not see it in another light than this Lets make it unanimous this time then let us all put our shoulders to the wheel and assist the county officials in another turn for a still lower tax rate Undergoes Operation From Louisville Times of last Friday- J R Claybrooke a retiredstock raiser of Springfield Ky well known throughout the State underwent a difficult operation at St Josephs Infirmary at 9 oclock this morning Five stones the smallest about the size of a partridge egg were removed The operation was performed by Drs Vance and Matthews and it is thought that it will prove successful Seven years ago Mr Claybrooke underwent a similar operation when he was relieved of a stone as large as a turkey egg weighing 1400 grains He has been an invalid for the past three years but it is thought that he will now regain his health if he withstands the shock of the operation Mr Claybrooke was brought to Louis ville last evening accompanied by his wife Mrs Jennie Claybrooke and his two sons W D Claybrooke representative of Washington county in the Legislature and Joseph S Claybrooke He is seventyone years old At one time he represented Washington county the Legislature Reports from Mr Claybrooke last evening are to Jthe effect that he is still improving J His Mothers Hand Louisville Herald The purchase by R F Collier of New York City of the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln was a gracious and patriotic act The soil that gave birth to that majestic man and martyr is more sacred than common clay WJ The sale of the old Kentucky farm has given rise to a new discussion of the old debate as to the forces that shaped Mr Lincolns life Discarding as rhetorical the statement of Henry Watterson made in his lecture on Lincoln that the great emancipator was inspired as Moses was inspired the question is pertinent What made Lincoln great Heredity environment or personal endeavor And the answer isall of these forces somethingfroYheredityLike mother He had something from environment Lack of advantages stimulated his endeavor and in this inverse way his en vironment though unfavorable was a help In overcoming difficulties he developed power and selfreliance But Most of all the forces was personal Endeavor This combined with a high ideal made Lincoln what he was When that wilderness mother Nancy Hanks Lincoln died in the log cabin in Spencer county Ind whither the family moved from Kentuckyshe put her hand upon the head of eightyear old Abraham and said Im going away my boy but I want you to remember that your mother wants you to be a good and useful man jAnd always we know Abraham Lincoln felt his mothers hand upon his head and he determined to make his mothers dream come true Pluck persistence spirit of endurance plus a mothers love and longing made Abraham Lincoln great The touch of a vanished hand and the sound of a voice that was still was not the least of the forces in his great life sTHREE JURORS CURED Of Cholera Morbus With One Small Bottlo of Chamberlains Colic Cholera and Oiar rhoea Remedy Mr G W Fowler of Hightower Ala relates an experience he had while serving on

withmournful cry Gently strips the golden mantle from the trees which stand near by When sweet Nature yields her beauty to the cold and barren earth In remembrance of her duty now claimed by right of birth Whensweet summertime is painted with a hue that would outshine The gilded marble palace or the picturesque Alpine In the garden stands a flower once cherished fora friend Still its tender leaves are drooping while its colors sweetly blend Yet its beauty is an emblem of that love once purely born While at the feet of mercy the world had viewed with scorn And while the gentle breeze is shaking the autumns sparkling dew Each golden leaf is weeping in its memory so true In the doorwaY tands a loved one whose hands had placed it there Andviews the rapid transit of the sweet now faded flower I wonder if shes weeping to see theroses fade A token of that friendship which won a deeper shade Ah theres not a feeling the autumn air can chill The flowers may be fading but the heart is warmer still She is trusting na promise the world may never know Friends here nisty forsake her but in heaven its not so 7 Death of Miss OBryan Miss Fannie OBryan died at the home of her mother near town Monday

and had resided in Washing ton county since birth She was loved by hundreds of friends and there were few who knew her who did not admire her beautiful traits of character Notwithstanding her sufferings for the past three years she always had a kind word for all and she was seldom seen in any other but a happy mood Miss OBryan was a devout member of the Catholic church and died fully fortified by the rites of the church The body was interred at St Rose yesterday morning Hundreds of friends extend condolence to the bereaved ones I When Ingcrsoll Was Silenced Shortly after Ingersoll the noted in fidel was defeated in his race for the governorship of Illinois he was one day broadly proclaiming his infidelity on board a railway train between Chicago and Peoria After being for some time offensively voluble he turned to a gentleman near him and defiantly demanded Tell me of one greatre sult that Christianity has ever accomplished The gentleman not wishing to open argument with the boaster hesitated to answer The train had stopped and all was silent in the car Just then an old lady of eighty years who sat just behind the infidel touched his arm with trembling hand and said Sir I do not know who you are but I think I can tell you of one great and glorious thing which Christianity has done What is it madam said IngersolL- It has kept Robert G Ingersoll from being governor of the great state of Illinois If a stroke of lightning had flashed through the car the effect could not have been more marked Ingersoll turned literally pale with rage and remained silent Ex SYCAMORE

PASTOR AND READ BY HIM BEFORE THE CENTRAL ASSOCIATION Of BAPTIST ITHE f1ilehem Church Washington county Kentucky constituted on the 19th day of October 1805 hence hundred years old 19th day of next month The states that it was done by a P original South District reSbyteryapPointedII consisted or the following Farris William Braselton and Reuben Padget From this itap pears that the association xercised the privilegeof appointing the Presbytery that constituted the church Thelerm Original South District Association requires a few words of explanation When the Baptists of Elkhorn Association and those of South Kentucky entered into terms of general union in 1801 they laid aside the names Regular and Separate Baptist and took the name of United Baptist In 1802 the Association having bejcome very extensive in its territory it was agreed to make a division Those on the north side of the Kentucky river were called the North District Association and those on the south side South Dis trict Association Soon after the latter body was formed there were serious doctrinal divisions among the brethren and at the meeting in 1803 a portion of the churches withdrew Those that adhered to the orthodox faith although in the minority were recognized by other associations as the original South District As sociation This explains the expression There were thirtyfour members in the organization of Bethlehem church How many of them had letters or from what Baptist churches they came the n scripturand practice At the November meeting it was determined to electa deacon and clerk at the following meeting and until that timeJtotravafl in spirit over the matter in other words to make the election of these officers a matter of special prayer This was a good resolution and is an indication of sterling piety Jt would le well for churches of the present day to follow this example At theDecember meeting pursuant to the foregoing order Brother John Davis was elected Deacon and Brother Anderson Jeffreys Clerk As one deacon was insufficient to attend to the temporali ties of the church in January 1806 Brother Jeffreys was elected to that office There is no record of any one being called as pasto- in the year 1806 but from a reference in the minutes of the Sep tember meeting it appears that Brother Padget was serving them at that tune About this time there were some disorderly members in the church The charge against them was using intoxicatin liquors to excess After making proper acknowledgements the were restored The brethren at that time were strict disciplina riahs and those that went astray were promptly looked after I Aprilv1806 the church reaffirmed her position taken in her organi nation that they would take nothing as their rule of faith andJ practice but the scripture of the Old and New Testaments Th first record of any one being called to the pastorate is found in the minutes of the June meeting in 1811 A Brother Stirnian w called to that office With the history of this brother the write- of this sketch is entirely unacquainted He was called for an in definite period or so long as pastor and church were mutuall pleased but if either party became dissatisfied the contract could be dissolved by giving timely and friendly notice In July of this same year a colored man named James was licensed to exhort and isins provided he obtained the consent of his master At the Sep tember meeting a Brother Rowner brought a charge against Stirman the pastor for immoral conduct The church acquitt them and Brother Rowner was arraigned for making a false accusation He was summoned to appear before the church and fail ing to do so he was excluded It appears from the minutes of the July meeting 1813 that this church in some way was connected with South KentuckyAssociation for John Davis and Anderson Jeffreys were appointed messengers to that body A Brother Paine about this time was acting as deacon There is no record of his election but he certainly wasforyin September 1813 he resigned and Brother William Willis was elected in his place In hayingnothing to show that his resignation was accepted In 1814 mel sengers were appointed to two

In August 1834 Brother Hardesty gave up the care of yearsDuringe should be allowed to preach in the Bethlehem meeting house This doubtless grew out of the fact that in many parte of the State se rious

The Sun 100 year fr Fair Grounds Will Be Sold Kentucky Standard The fairgrounds of the Nelson County Agricultural As sociation will be privajtely offered for sale in a short time hhe way in which they will be offered has not been defi nitely determined but the one purpose view will be to give the stock the most general distribution possible so as to enlist the services of all the citizens in the county in the successful holding of the fair It has been proposed to organize a new company or corporation making the shares smaller thus giving a larger number of shares and insuring a broader andmore general distribution of the stock This question is with the people of the county If they are sufficiently interested to take part in their own county fair they now have the opportunity It is to be hoped that interest in the home fair will be increased and not diminished The fair is a success at present but the plan to scatter the stock generally among the people is a good one and would

BY OUR CORRESPONDENT Special Correspondence The demand for fresh new clean money of small denominations is so large that the treasury Is receiving un average of 2000000 a day of woruout currency of all kinds about 40 per cent the currency of national banks United States Treasurer Treat said rpcently that the printing and engraving power of the United States govern ment Is not equal to the task of fur nishing new currency as fast as de- sIred Realizing what would have to be contended with In this direction Treas urer Treat some time ago wrote to the various suhtreasuries calling thenat tention to the filet that probably 50 per cent of the money sent in for redemp tion was perfectly good enough to re main in circulation for many months longer and directing them Tolefuseto receive that which should not be takenvout of circulation The national banks of the country are so anxious for new dea crisp money that they bundle u loads of partly used money and turn it Into the subtreasuries for redemption supposing that the United States has nothing to do but keep the people of the country supplied with pretty fresh ly printed bills Mr Treat says the treasury Is willing to do all that Is nee essary but that there is a limit to which the bureau of engraving and printing can go in obliging the banks Wireless Telegraphy Extennion The navy department Is erectiugia wireless telegraph tower 200 feet high at the Washington navy yard in an ef fort to communicate with the wireless station at the Brooklyn navy yard Heretofore messages between the two places have been sent by

July of the year 17SL 1 British warships were thick on the American coast and though Yankee craft were constantly dodging in and out each skipper real ized that he ran a terrible risk One day early In the month Captain Elisha Hopewell of the brig Mary Ann of Salem who had not made a voyage for two months entered his house to say to his wifefWaal Nancy Ive got a cargo for the brig at last f uI should think It was about time replied the wife as she mixed her dough for the usual two loaves of bread without looking up What dye think tis asked the captain as he sat down and pulled off Ills right boot which had been chafing his heeL Dunno But I shall be ready when the brig 6Sancy L dont think youll care About gbin on this voyage Its a ray 4ber peculiar cargo and I guess youll sort of

smile when will pu be ready Day ifter tomorrer Soll L But Nancy think of the powders hundred barls of it Just let a spark touch it and well be blowed Into a million pieces Fm agoln along to keep the sparks away Now Elisha dont waste anymore breath nor make that hole In Tour stockln any bigger Im gain along powder or no powder The cat can scratch around fur a lIvID and it wouldnt be no great barm if the holly hocks died fur want of water Thats all and it wont do no good to say an other word The captain pulled on his boot and went out and split some wood to bake the bread and the subject was t men 1rJIE CAROO IS PoW DE WHISPERED THE OAPTAEt Cloned again for twentyfour hours Then the wife sent a few things down to the brig shut up the stove poured all the water out of the teakettle and appeared on board Next morning the Mary Ann put to sea The brig had been built for a trader She was fast but she mounted no guns As for fire = arms there was only one musket Aboard and just who that belonged to aobody seemed to know While nearly every other merchantman out of New England ports could make more or less cf a stout defense If attacked the Mary Ann depepded on her wings alone In this matter both Elisha and Nancy were agreed Guns and powderand ball cost mon ey was the way the captain put It while wind dont cost notbln Even If we could fight and lick one of them British menofwar we could sever bring her Into port with our sev en men was the argument used by the wife After heading straight out tosea un til he believed be was clear of any of the blockaders Captain Ellsba laid his southern course Now and then a diS- tant sail was sighted but nothing hap pened to cause alarm until the brig was well down toward Cape Hatteras Then one evening as fair progress Was made and all was going well 4Nancy looked up frorn her sewing at Xlfeha as he came sauaterlng down lute the cabin anS iii ha you know bow ray feet allus burn at sea when were coin to have a i calm Well lose the wind before ID oclock By Josh but I dont like it he ex claimed with considerable vigor Were slipijin right along to glt around the cape by sunup and we cant have no calmsGot to have Elisha and it wont do no good to talk about It In less thaif two hours the breeze had tined tlowu Mid died out and the Mary Ann lay tossing on the ground swell The cargo was one to be got Into the hands of the southern patriots without delay and at least a portion of it was something no skipper cared to have aboard any longer than he could make a port As the calm came Captain Elisfia Hopewell fretted and fumed and wondered If It would be his undo- Ing The British still held Charleston and from that port they patrolled the southern coast Nothing had been in sight when night closed in but morii Ing and a breeze might find a frigate In his wake or coming up the coast At the end of an hour and as he was still pacing the deck Nancy joined hint arid quietly said uEl1 Jayou mnyiglt ready fur a thunderstorm Noa he fairly shouted as he flung up his arms Its comin Elisha I can smell a thunderstorm ten miles off as you very well know But the powder Nancy the hun dred barls of powder We shall be struck by lightnin and blowed to mince meat Mebbe we shall but we cant help ourselves Thats all jest now Elisha Better change your clothes and git ready fur the rain Five minutes later there came a flash of lightning followed by the rumble f thunder and within a quarter of fcri hour there was a terrIfic downpour of rain which lasted for a full hour At every flash of lightning the crew of the brig shivered and trembled and they were a frightened and humbled lot when the storm finally passed over The breeze did not come up as the heavens cleared and then every sailor knew that the calm would hold until sunrlfee Midnight came mid the cap taln was Just leaving the deck In charge of his mate when Nancy had declared her Intention of whoI bed half an hour before suddenly peared on deck and began sniffing snuffing at the airI6Is the captain with considerable interest No wind Elisha she but Ill tell you whats answeredI know whats become pf all that you cant smell a whale close by A whale shouted the captain But by Josh then your nose mqst have got a twist In It If there was a whale within five miles of us Whale almost alongside of us sir Interrupted a voice from the bows of the brig And there was a hurrying forward to confirm the announcement A whale fully sixty feet long had ris en to the surface so quietly that no wash of the sea betrayed his presence He was lying head and tall with the brig and almost rubbing her starboard side and every man wondered that the odor of the leviathan had not betrayed his presence long before- I said a whale Elisha observed Nancy as she looked over the rail upon the great bulk and I calkerlate youll acknowledge In right But what we goln to do with him asked the captain In a bewildered way Nothln tallJest let him be Hes old enough and big enough to take care of himself But If he staves In the brig hell stave In the powderL Cant be helped You cant argue with a whale Wed better all keep still and see If he wont go away The suggestion was followed but the leviathan did not take his departure He seemed to have come to the surface to take a long nap Now and then a long drawn sigh escaped from his spout bole but so far as could be observed by the men wtio moved about in their bare feet and peered over the bulwarks at Intervals he never moved a fin His queer hanging on made evgtybody nervous and the result was that nobody slept Captain Eltaba paced up and down on tiptoe and Nancy got out needle and thread and found a jacket of his which need mending An hour after midnight tb Lcaptalu descended to the cabin to whisper to her Nancy Im jiggered If I know whats to be done Now Elisha whats the use of all this stewln she asked as she held her needle suspended to look at him A calm Is a calm and Is goin to con tlner to be a calm till the wind gits up Pears to me that even Deacon Taylors oxen could figger that out But its the whale Nancythe whale he hoarsely whispered What about the whale He hain hurt nobody yet and I dont think intends to Im worry in more about our cat at home than I am about the whale alongside Jest one flap of his tall would bus In the brig and the barls of powder and away wed gol Waal I aint goln to worry bout no flaps and It wont doyou no good to prowl around Better lie down on the locker and git forty winks of sleep11 The hours dragged on and the calm continued so did the whale When dawn came stealing over the sea at last he was rubbing the barnacles off his side against the Mary Ann and tak ing lots of comfort The first thing they all looked for was the whale The next thing was for sight of sail and Nancy pointed her finger to the east and nudged the captain with her elbow and quietly said Elisha dont you kind of think thats an English frigate com In In on the breeze which we halnt got yet By Josh and I do he shouted after a brief look Yes slree Thats a British frigate and the Mary Ann Is as rood as captured this very mlnlt Nan cy you might as well begin to pack up your pins and needle- I shant pa k nothln Eflisha Shes got u small breeze out there but It wont hold Itll die out and then whip capeThnt11 added the mate as heleaped up on the rail to squint at the sky and observe the set of the If It falls calm shell lower her boats toackle us persisted the cap taln Im tellln you that the brig Is as good as captured right now and we might jest as well git ready to see the inside of an English prison By Joshi Nancy but didnt I tell you to stay home You did Elislmj but Im here all the same What a man you are to fret That Britisher Is seven miles off yet and cant you see how the winds dyin out Nowj you stop tour frettIn and let Providence sort of take hold Nobody Is ever captured till youve got hold of their coat tails and even then the coat may wriggle off The eyes of the crew were on the cap tain however and the wifes stouthearted words dill not prevent despond WHALE HAD BREACHED BETWEEN TIm 1filE BOAT AND BRIO The entire crew agreed that the Mary Ann would never enter the port of Salem again and those who had ext tra garments began to put them on so as to save being despoiled Captain and mate sat down on the cabin skylight and sighed and groaned while Nancy walked the deck and occasion ally glanced from the whale to the frigate When the latter had come up within five miles she lost the last of the breeze She knew the brig to be a Yan kee trader and her captain would take no chances Down dropped a boat and fifteen men followed it and in a min ute more It was headed for the brig Waal mebbe you can git some com fort t growled Captain Ell sba the utffth up and pointed toward That boat haint boarded us yettt replied Nancy But whats to hinder her Cant tell but I somehow feel as If Providence would pull us out of this Elisha Hopewell you haint got half the grit I thought you had and youve chewed tobacco and eat codfish till you seem to have lost nil your faith Even though the frigate was five miles awaya sort of quiver went through the whale as her boat struck the water It could not be doubted that he heard th fsound When the boat had covered a mile he parted from the brig and slewcdTihlmself around almost by Inches Ten mlnUtes more and there was a cry tfifft he had disappeared lIe went as he came silently and without showing a patch jof foam The boat was pulling steadily on with the young sun glistening on the bayonets of the arm ed crew 4and Captain Ell aim had Just fetched nother groan of despair when there were shouts of astonishment from forward and aft The whale had breached between the boat and the brig He came up from the sea as If he had 200 pounds of steam on and had forced a good third of his length out of water before he fell on the surface with a mighty crash He did not rush at the boat but he lay fair In her course and beat the water Into acres of foam and rolled this way and that until the seas be kicked up made the Mary Ann dance The boat came to a sudden stop It looked as If the wbnld had a chip on his shoulder and was aching for a row After ten minutes ot delay the boat put about for the frJgSte By Josh and by Joshwhispered the captain Have I gone squint eyed or has the boat put back demanded the mate Elisha seu the wind pointedtto the northwest Better make good use oflt to git out of this The sails of the Mary Ann were and she made a two miles firsttpuff A chase followed but what was a good sailing breeze for a small brig was a slow pace for a henry frigate and by and by the pursuer hauled off and went his way A few hours later the cargo was lauded and the brave General Greene had the munitions to fight the gallant action of Eutaw Springs When the last barrel of pow der and the last pound of lead were out of the brig Captain Elisha descended to the cabin and kissed his wife with a resounding smack i La now but whats come over you Ellsha she asked In surprise You saved the Mary Ann and by Jpsh Ill kiss you again Git out and dont act like a boy I never saved the brig t all All I did was to tell you to hang on and trust In that whale and Providence and I hope Itll be a lesson to you fur the rest of your days not to holler before youre hurt POVERTY To Wealth and Happy Reunion of Father and Daughter
