JULY 3, 1930


Surprising as it may seem, July 4th is not a legal national holiday, for no legislature declared it, so it has never been enacted by Congress.  However, it is celebrated throughout the Union, and this holiday has been the occasion of much sorrow in

the past due to fireworks, firing of cannon, pistols, etc.  Also, three presidents died on this date:  Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Monroe.

The religious debate which was held at Antioch at Logan’s Cross Roads near Nobob last week between Elder E. G. Creasey of Horse Cave, the Church of Christ, and Rev. Calvin Gregory of Lafayette, Tennessee, of the Baptist Church, was very largely attended and, we understand, in good humor, and both sides may have been satisfied.  As a rule in such cases, both sides think their champion got the best of it.

----------

New Car Passed Through Town.  One of the new Austin cars, called a “baby” car, passed through town today, going south.  The driver was kind enough to drive around the square to let the curious folks take a look, which they did, gawking and crowding until it was difficult for anyone to see to advantage.   The idea that you can put one of these cars in your vest pocket is an extreme exaggeration, as it is said to weigh 1100 pounds.  It is at least five feet high and has no running boards, so a person is required to step directly from the road into the car.  It is within a few inches of the ground and is fit only for good roads.

----------

Child Terribly Mangled.  James Leon, the five-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Smith of Temple Hill, was struck by a car last Wednesday and both legs were broken and he was seriously injured on the head.  At first his life was practically despaired of, but at last account he was improving.  The child was following a threshing machine through Temple Hill when he attempted to run across the road without noticing that a car was coming.  It is said that the car was not going beyond the legal limit, but you can never tell what a child will do, and the accident occurred.

The Walton Hotel of Munfordville was burned last Friday about 4:30 o’clock, with considerable loss.  It was an old hostelry, built before the Civil War, and was quite a landmark.

----------

From Randolph:  It’s a girl at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clayton Nunnally, named Mary Jane. --  It’s a new boy at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jess Brown.

From Arnett Grove.  Friends met at the house on the Carl DeWeese farm and papered and cleaned up, and set some furniture in readiness for Mrs. Lee Milburn, who will begin our school Monday.  Mrs. Milburn taught our school last year, and we are looking forward to another good term.

Lightning Plays Havoc with Flock of Sheep.  Lightning struck a poplar tree on the farm of Mr. O. D. Barrett of Randolph Monday night a week ago and killed 17 sheep for Mr. Barrett and his son Clayton – 17 sheep all buried in one grave at a loss of $170.

----------

From Arnett Grove:  When school opened on Monday, there were 47 pupils and 15 parents present.  Bro. Jeff Tinsley was a visitor and took charge of the morning exercises by Bible reading, prayer, songs and an interesting talk.  We appreciated his visit and heartily appreciate the parents coming out.  It proves that they are interested in their children and their school.  We are looking forward to a splendid term, as everything certainly was started right for the first day.

The Kentucky National Park Commission has filed suit in the Edmonson County Court to condemn Great Onyx Cave, a portion of the National Park Area, a short distance from Mammoth Cave.  Defendants in the action are L. P. Edwards and members of the Edwards family.

---------

Our neighboring city, Scottsville, has just completed marking their streets in true city style.  These markings are placed at the corner of each block, and they look fine.  Glasgow should have had her streets marked several years ago.  To tell anyone you live on a certain street at a certain number is by no means telling him where you live, for he may never find the street – and certainly will not unless he asks someone.  As we did not mark our streets before, let’s follow Scottsville’s example and do it at once.  How about it, “City Dads?”

New Chain Store Coming.  The J. J. Newberry Company, one of the largest chain stores in the country, has taken a lease on the main floor of the Sisco Building, and about the first of September will open a variety store with articles from five cents to $1.00.  The firm will completely overhaul the building, taking out the front elevator and making a new entrance, occupying the barber shop and putting in a new front.

----------

The attorneys of Barren County have re-organized the local Bar Association by electing Mr. V. H. Baird as President; Mr. J. E. Richardson, Vice President, Mr. Brents Dickinson Jr., Secretary, and Mr. Frank Jones, Treasurer.  A new constitution and set of by-laws have been adopted.  The by-laws provide for a schedule of minimum fees the attorneys are expected to charge for all classes of legal services.  The lawyers complain that the regularity with which the public propounds questions for which they do not expect the attorney to charge has become so burdensome that it is serious, and they feel that if their advice and opinions are worth anything, the propounder should pay for it and, if it is worthless, the propounder should not seek it.

----------

A clinic for giving typhoid serum was conducted in the New Addition by Drs. Loftus and Wells on Tuesday afternoon through the courtesy of Mr. H. W. Duff and Rev. J. L. Parker, the store on Grandview Avenue serving as the station.  Twenty-nine men, women and children received their first injection without charge.  One cannot help but feel that this particular activity will be of definite value to the community, and a second clinic will be held next Tuesday at the same time and place.

----------

Bootleggers Caught.  Last Saturday, Island Franklin of the Beckton section appeared before Judge Jones and drew a fine of $300 and 60 days in jail.  On Tuesday of this week, Charley Green, out the Coral Hill Road, was tried before Special Judge J.R. White on a liquor charge, and he received a reward of $200 and 60 days in jail.  Green is said to be an old offender but was finally caught, and will be watched hereafter.

----------

At a recent meeting of the Monroe County Board of Education, Professor Paul Lyon was chosen Superintendent of Monroe County Schools.  Because of his excellent education, sterling ideals and high standards of character which are so  fitting for any man, it is believed that he will make a most efficient superintendent even though he is only 23 or 24 years old, probably the youngest superintendent in the state.

Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Atkinson announce the marriage of their daughter, Lucille, to Mr. Roy V. Settles.  The wedding was solemnized in Scottsville on Saturday afternoon, July 5, by Rev. Moore, pastor of the Baptist Church.  Mrs. Settles is from the Temple Hill section and has been teaching in Barren County rural schools for the past two years.  Mr. Settles is the only son of Mr. W. V. Settles, whose home is on South Jacksonway, but is now living in Glasgow where he is working with a contractor.

Galler’s Shows Have Very Auspicious Opening. A nice attendance was registered Monday night at the premiere of the Galler Shows.  The midway was a blaze of fire when the curtain went up as the Galler show’s attractions are splendor personified when the myriad hues of the vari-colored lights cast their reflections, and what a line of attractions to feast the eyes upon!  There was a line of thrilling rides, where whoops of joy were the best advertisers as the riders gave vent to their feelings.  Then the shows, with the big minstrels on one side and the athletic stadium and Hawaiian village on the other – these kept the large crowd milling about until a late hour, with everyone in a festive mood.  The shows will remain at the ball grounds until the last dog is hung on Saturday night.

----------

A seven-day search for Miss Christine Long, 16-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Long of Horse Cave, came to an end at noon today when the mother found her, unconscious and seriously ill, in a smokehouse at their home.  Whether the girl had wandered back home and went into the smokehouse or whether she was hidden there was not learned because of her condition.  She had been there not more than an hour, because family members had been there earlier and had not seen her.  Posses and searching parties had scoured this and neighboring counties to no avail and her brother, Harry Long, had offered a $250 reward for information regarding her.

Ish Winegar, Mack Spencer, Bill Harlow and Hilts Spencer, will play over WHAS, the Louisville radio station, tomorrow, Friday, at 9:45 to 10:00 a.m. and from 11:15 to 11:30 a.m.  Let everybody who can, tune in tomorrow and hear the sweet music rendered by this Barren County orchestra.

C. B. Page and Mr. Herschell Adwell will tend business at the store and not interfere with Mr. Baxter’s candy business.

----------

Mr. Tom Kidd of Echo attended the birthday celebration of his father, Mr. W. B. Kidd, at Crail Hope on Sunday.  Mr. Kidd was 84 and Mrs. Kidd is 88.  They were married 68 years ago and are still keeping their own home and doing their own chores.  When Tom got there Sunday, his mother, who does her own cooking, exclaimed, “Why, here’s two cars of folks and I’ve only got one chicken fried!”  When the other children got there – seven in all, with their families – Mrs. Kidd was swamped until she found each car was loaded with all sorts of “goodies” as well as people, and so there was plenty, even without her one chicken.

George Duff Watkins, who fell from a pony last week and broke his arm is getting along nicely.  Last summer George fell from his bicycle and broke his right arm, just above the wrist.  Last week the break was of the same arm, about an inch above the old fracture.  He’s waiting to see what he does next summer.

----------

Mr. and Mrs. Judge Jewell and Mr. Cander Carter of the Cave City country returned last week from a trip to Smithville, Alabama; Dalton, Georgia; and Chattanooga, Tennessee and surrounding country, which is one of the finest scenic sections east of the Rocky Mountains.  They report a delightful trip.
