Calf Thieves.  A few nights ago, some thieves stole a marketable calf from Mrs. Eugene Baird, six miles out the North Jackson, and the same night took another marketable calf from Mr. Willis Parrish, who lives not so far away.  The same night, thieves took eight hens from Mrs. Baird but had the kindness to leave the little chickens the hens were hovering.  Some shotguns are badly needed in that neighborhood!

AD.  Your Telephone Is “Peace of Mind” Insurance.  Do you worry about accidents which might happen?  Do you wonder what you would do if a fire broke out, or if an illness should strike suddenly – if you needed the police or the sheriff in a hurry?  Do you fret as to the whereabouts of your family – or about the health of friends or relatives?  A telephone is good insurance against these health-wrecking worries.  You don’t have to guess – your telephone makes you certain.  Often, in a single emergency, the telephone will repay its cost for many, many years.  Why take chances?  Order a telephone installed today.  Southern Con- tinental Telephone Company, Inc.

Twenty-two of our cavalry horses are leaving on the train today, in charge of George McQuown, bound for Camp Perry, Ohio, up on the lakes, where they will be trained for two weeks.  They will then be brought back to Cavalry Field here for a few days and then taken to Fort Knox for two more weeks of training before our Cavalry boys will join them and again meet the “smiling faces” of their horses.

Distressing Accident.  Sarah Frances, 6-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Allen Nuckols, stuck a table fork in her right eye while trying to get a cork out of a small bottle.  Her mother was upstairs and did not know the little girl had the fork.  Sarah Frances told her what had happened and she was immediately taken to a physician but the sight was destroyed.  Sarah Frances is a beautiful little girl and her friends are much distressed because of her misfortune.
Since the suit brought by the Community Hospital against Barren County was declared unconstitutional,  ministers of the town presented the matter to their

JUNE 30, 1932 (Cont’d)  Page 5congregations at last Sunday’s  morning service and, at night, a meeting was held at the Baptist Church.  Those present were asked to express themselves as to whether the hospital should be closed or supported by voluntary donations.  Pledge cards were passed out, and donations asked for, with the understanding that it would take about $2000 to support the hospital for three months.  $1100 was pledged that night and arrangements were made to canvass among members not present, with the confident expectation that the remaining $900 would be sub-  scribed.  The decision of the courts has put a new angle to the hospital situation, which will have to be worked out.  It would be not only a disgrace but a calamity
to close such a useful and necessary institution after spending some $300,000 to get it established, and after it has proven its absolute necessity.
