Miss Elizabeth Poynter, 12, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. U. U. McConnell, route 4, of the Glasgow Grade School, grade 8-A, won the championship in the Courier-Journal spelling bee at the Glasgow High School Saturday.  The word missed by the other contestant was “rhubarb.”  Runner-up was Georgia Wren Geralds, 12, Cave City, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Johnnie Geralds,  She is a pupil of the Cave City Grade School, grade 6.  Clarice Lowery, of the Lucas school, 5th grade, was third in the contest.  She is a daughter of Mrs. C.D.

Post Office Robbed.  The post office at Gamaliel, Monroe County, was broken into and robbed Sunday night; $35 in cash and a number of stamps were taken.  The safe was carried a hundred yards from the post office to the Baptist church yard and the combination worked.  No arrest has been made.

----------

A Narrow Escape.  Carl and Charles Everett, son and nephew of  Mr. and Mrs. Roy Everett of Finney, had a narrow escape from drowning a few days ago.  While rowing around in a canoe on the back waters of the river, they drifted too near the main current, which was so strong that an oar was swept away from the hands of one of the boys.  As a result, they were overturned and if both boys had not been expert swimmers, they would have been drowned. Happily, neither is the worse for their sousing, but it was certainly a narrow escape.  (1)

Stork Working Overtime Around Glasgow Junction.  The stork does not seem to have taken into consideration the fact that a depression exists in this county.  This was evidenced when he left triplets at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Herron near

Glasgow Junction – two girls and a boy.  The son, named Dallas Franklin, weighed 5-1/2 pounds and the daughters, Dolores Delano and Doris Roosevelt, weighed 5 and 7 pounds, respectively.  The family has five children besides the triplets, and

two children are deceased.  Mrs. Herron is only 30 years old and has given birth to ten children, eight of whom are still living.  To our knowledge, these are the first triplets to carry the president’s family name, giving us the idea that the Herrons are Democrats.  (1)

Thieves stole four tires off the coupe of Mr. J.W. Gramlin sometime last week.  The thieves did not take the rims, but let the air out of  the tires and stripped them off.  Although the theft was not discovered until last Friday, Mr. Gramlin is not positive just when the tires were taken.  (1)

Attempted Assassination of President Elect Roosevelt Yesterday; Five Wounded When Assassin Fires at Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  A gunman, who gave his name as Joe Zingara, of New York, was quoted as saying, “I kill all Presidents – kill every officer.”  Startled and momentarily stunned by the firing close to his car, Roosevelt waved to the crowd and shouted, “I am all right” as he was hurriedly driven away from the confusion.  Among the five wounded was Chicago’s Mayor Cernak who was speedily admitted to a nearby hospital; little hope is held for his life.

----------

A Tough Break.  Billy Beatty Jones, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Jones, Jr. was seriously hurt last Friday when playing snow ball with several boys.  In dodging a ball, he struck the end of a pipe, cutting a gash on the right cheek and sustaining a slightly fractured cheek bone.  He was at once treated and was thought to be getting along satisfactorily but, as if to change the monotony, on Sunday afternoon he broke out with  scarlet fever.  You can never tell what’s coming next.

----------

What’s Worse Than War?  During all the wars in which this country has been engaged – the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and the World War – Americans killed in action or who died of wounds numbered under 300,000.  During the last fifteen years – a

period approximating the total duration of these six major wars – Americans killed in automobile accidents within the United States or who died of such injuries, have numbered 325,004.  (1)
