An Interesting Article on The Blue Grass Regions,
Written by a Resident of this Place, Who
is Now Visiting There.
Written for the Newk-Gazettr :
As it is usual for every one who
travels even a short distance to
let the world know of it through
the home paper, I will be no ex

Leaving Bartlesville April 28r<l.
enroute for Owensboro, we reached
Atlanta in time to spend several
hours very pleasantly with friends.
As night approached, a sudden
thunder cloud came up and 1
began to lie very nervous at tin*
thought of the large rivers and
the high trestles to In* crossed in
the darkness of a stormy night.
But soon after taking a sleeper at
8:80, the clouds dispersed and the
moon came out in till its splendor.
I soon became so interested in the
scenery that, all thought of danger
and sleep was banished, and 1 gave
myself up to enjoy every moment
of the route.

the city as we would have liked,
but were soon speeding rapidly
over the lovely route now before
us. Mountains and magnificent
forest were still in sight, the woods
filled with lovely llowcrs, with
carpet of green everywhere. At
short intervals pretty little towns
were passed, and nice farms and
white cottages in every direction
spoke of thrift and success.
As we neared Kentucky, the
country was still more thickly
settled, forming almost a con
tinuous village between the
numerous large towns passed. We

we reached Ridge Top, Ky., then

The scenery was so different
from our country districts in “the
old red hills of Georgia” that eyes
and mind feasted on the view. I
had noticed something all along
the route that 1 never saw before
on farms, that was the large num
ber of long beds or plants covered
over with white cloth, not only in
fields but in woods. 1 could not
imagine why hot beds were needed
at that season, or what seed re
quired such care. On inquiry,
found t hat they were tilled with
tobacco plants that are very deli
cate, necessitating protection from
cold until time for transplanting
in May and June.

not very broad.

Owensboro is a very beautiful
city of 2,000 inhabitants situated
on the Ohio inNort-west corner of
the state. The river at this point
isnearlya mile wide, the business
section extending almost to its
Largo Steamers pass from Cincin
nati to Memphis and New Orleans,
it is a grand sight to watch the
largo white steamers of the three
and five decks crowded often with
excursionists from near by towns.
The river flows very placidly on
its course, and has never been
known to overflow it banks at this
place, but other towns are often
flooded during the rainy season.
Indiana, the “hoosier state” is in
plain view across the waters and
every Sunday excursion steamers
are run to Rockport and Evans
ville where baseball games dese
crate the Sabbath day, a female
bail team played. A few Sundays
ago, here in Owensboro, but came
from “across the river,” r/e are
glad that this fashion is not toler
ated in Georgia.
This city has many very elegant
residences, on lovely shaded streets
that are perfectly level, paved
with asphalt and granatoid, mak
ing driving delightful behind these
fast Kentucky horses. Within the
past year the city has spent $250,
000 on street paving, and has just
closed a large contract for finish
ing. All of the side walks are in
concrete, as well as yard walks, as
white and smooth as huge blocks
of marble, with most beautiful
lawns and parks on the side. The
tall Lombardy poplars shade
many of the nicest streets, they
grow to an immense size and
branching out forma dense shade,
that is very refreshing in this hot
valley. For strange to say that
the climate here is much warmer
than in Georgia, and is much more
variable, one day being excessive
ly warm, and perhaps the next
day or two will be real cold. The
principal driving is done after
early suppers, as it is the only
pleasant time on very warm days.
The thermometer registered 94 on
Saturday, but a thunder storm
at night made it very cool since.
The city has very elegant pub
lic buildings, particularly the
public schools that are quite im
posing. The churches also, twenty
seven in number will compare
favorably with those of the largest
cities. There are twelve banks
and a number of handsome stores.
While in many things they dif

have, who have extended a cordial
welcome to the “stranger within

right,” is just as strong as with

In this county, (Daviess,)
“Tobacco is King,” instead of
cotton as with us. All prosperity
depends much on this crop. There
are thirty three large tobacco
factories, of four or five stories in
height filled to the top with the
leaf in the drying stage. I saw a
few days ago the largest tabacco
warehouse in the world. These
factories employ three thousand
people the year round.
The county alone, plants 12000,
acres in the weed and last year
produced 15,000,000 pounds! It
is shipped by the hnndred tons to
Liverpool and London, and to
different manufactories in this
country, to be made into cigars,
cigarettes, chewing tobacco etc.
Another big enterprise is a cel
lulose manufactory, where the
pith from corn stalks is made into
cellulose, for which the govern
ment pays $400.00 per ton, and
Europe sends large orders to the
company that owns several other
manufactories. The cellulose is a
hard substance, used for the inner
lining of war vessels, and is said
to be impenetrable to balls, and
impervious to water. Thousands
of wagon loads of corn stalks are
'stocked up like small mountians,
until ready for use.
The manufacture of whiskey is
also making Owensboro noted, as
several of the largest distilleries
in the world are near the city.
Of course barrooms or saloons are
iu abundant evidence, but “they
say,” there is no more drunken
ness than in many other places,
probably because those who use
it are so accustomed to it that it
no longer staggers them.
The most elegant and costly
home in the county just on the

years ago by Monarch, one of the
largest distillers, at acostof SBO,-

Wliat Might Have Been.
In a lecture on Stonewall Jack
son recently delivered at Charlotte-
N. C., by Dr. William J. .Tones,
the lucturer said: “Mr. Davis
told me not long before his death
that he had intended to send Jack
son to take charge of the army in
the west; and with Robert Lee in
command of the army in northern
Northern Virginia, and Stonewall
Jackson in charge of those western
troops, w r hat might not have been
done? It makes me think of a
prayer I heard in New Orleans. A
good Catholic father, who had
been a chaplain in the army, was
to pray. He Began by telling the
Lord what good Confederates we
had been, and then he pronounced
a fine eulogy on Stonewall Jackson
and concluded by saying, “Oh,
Lord, we believe Thou doest what
is right; we believe that Thou
liasdec ided we ought not to succeed
and that we must be defeated.
But, oh, Lord, before Thou couldst
defeat us Thou hadst first to re
move Stonewall Jackson.’ I think
for some wise purpose of His own
the Lord took Jackson to Himself.
I may be a sinner, yet I never
could say that we did not succeed.
I am a loyal citizen of this coun
try, and I love the old flag, Old
Glory, it is called, and if you
would take from it the glory won
by the southern men, you would
have very little left!”

There died in Massachusetts re
cently James J. Kavanaugh, at the
age of 112 years. According to
accounts he had used tobacco for
100 years, and had taken liquor
for a stimulant during the latter
part of his life. These things, of
course, had nothing to do with his
longevity, and without them ‘he
might have lived to be 150. But
in all probability one thing that
aided him in rouuding out his 112

anything to bother him.” Worry
