Two local men have been arrested in Harlan County for the theft of 72 pistols from the 123rd Cavalry Armory here some weeks ago.  They have been taken to Louisville and placed in jail to await trial in the U. S. Court.  Seeing there was no hope of escape, they have made open confession without trial and have been sentenced to serve three years each in the Federal penitentiary in Atlanta.  These two were caught with the goods, but they were not the only guilty ones; the others were slick enough to hide the stolen pistols and so escaped detection.
Washington Overall Company Is Going Strong.  Mr. G. W. Comer of Nashville, president of the Washington Manufacturing Company, was in town yesterday and reports his company as having a fine business. The branch here in Glasgow is in full blast, with 165 on the payroll.  This speaks mighty well, both for the company and our community.  Think what it means to our people for 165 wage earners in this one industry.  Think how many families are fed and clothed by the wages from this one company.  Glasgow should be very proud to have this splendid industry in our midst.

Clicking telegraph instruments made possible the marriage of a girl in Minneapolis to a man in Anchorage, Alaska.  The bride stood beside the telegraph key of an operator in the Western Union office at Minneapolis while the minister asked questions and received her answers and those of the unseen groom, who stood with witnesses in the railway telegraph office in Anchorage, while snow eddied and drifted outside, and heard the entire ceremony from the telegraph operator.  After the ceremony, the bride started on the long trip to join her husband.  The Western Union was organized only fifty years ago, is now circling the globe, and was used to marry a couple thousands of miles apart.  What will be its accomplishments during the next fifty years?
