Auctioning A Jack

Auctioning A JackThe Kentuckian nowadays does not come to county court to pick a quarrel or to settle one. He has no quarrel. His fist has reverted to its natural use and become a hand. Nor does he go armed. The gentlemen in this State no longer derive satisfaction with a fist fight in the market-place. Also, the three-cornered hat is no longer remembered. Something else has disappeared; the open use of the pioneer beverage. Merchants no longer set it out for their customers because it is no longer the law of hospitality to offer it to a guest. Also, the decanter is no longer found on the sideboard in the home and the barrel is not stored in the cellar.
