The Ticket – Covington, KY, May 7, 1877


To the Editor of the Ticket:

                    Boston, May 5.


          The Boston sawyers took in about a thousand fine logs by the rise on the 4th inst. They have now in the boom at that place about twelve thousand logs, with several more at the Steer creek boom, about one mile south of Boston; in all, enough to keep the machinery in motion about three months.

          The Butler folks are anxious to have the new Accommodation Train run to their town, as they have a round-house, turning-table, wood-shed, switches, &c., at that point. Let them petition Messrs. Ransom, Ledyard & Co., and try their luck.

          The Catawba folks are again in the lead in tobacco buying. Isaac N. Walker, of Walker & Sengstak, has stationed one of his agents at this important point, the active Captain Beggs.

          Good roads is the great want in the “hoop-pole” county. It would be poetic justice for the great reform meeting on Monday to touch ‘em up on roads. Save the Kentucky Central, there isn’t a thoroughfare that deserves to be called such in all hoop-poledom. Even the street of Falmouth will not occur to the reader’s mind in the description of the New Jereusalem’s paths of pleasantness.

          The Ticket’s suggestion of sending Pendleton County’s biggest public pilferer to the penitentiary, and see the rest scatter, is favorably received, and there is great solicitude to ascertain what his lordly name is. But stealing ten thousand dollars from the public crib is not considered so heinous a crime as detaching one equine from a private crib. Alas!                                                                                                                  CON.



The Ticket – Covington, KY, May 7, 1877




          It was determined, yesterday, to postpone the Pendleton County Teacher’s Institue until the third Monday in August.

          The Democratic County Convention yesterday was unanimous for A. R. Clarke for Representative. A resolution was adopted indorsing Tate for State Treasurer.

          Sneak thieves carried off about forty dollars worth of underwear left to soak in a tub in Mr. Herold’s yard, on Pike street, last night; also a half dozen chickens.

          The Sheriff is busily at work on the delinquent list of tax-payers, to be posted at the Court House door for sale of property.
