Jesse, the 21-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. K T Johnson of the Cedar Grove country was accidently killed at Mr. W J Profitt’s saw mill near the home of Mr. Johnson. They were sawing a very large log, when the saw struck a knot the belt ran off the saw pulley, which stopped the saw but left the belt running. It is supposed that young Johnson stepped on the belt which threw him against the wheel of the tractor with such force that it crushed his head, part of his brain running out. He lived for several hours however and spoke a few words. Young Johnson was an excellent young man and was popular with all who knew him.

A meeting of the business men of Glasgow is to be held at the Chamber of Commerce room Monday night, which means much to Glasgow. In fact, it is a turning point in our development. We are assured of the establishment of an overall factory employing 200 hands, provided we are willing to do as much as other towns are offering to do. But Glasgow must hold out the glad hand of welcome, else the opportunity will turn to some other town. The Washington Mfg. Co. proposes to furnish all the capital and handle all the stock, not calling for Glasgow to subscribe for any of the stock. It is a wonderful opportunity to turn several thousand dollars wages into Glasgow every Saturday evening.

Glasgow continually has its share of bad luck, which is to be expected. But in this instance bad luck is public calamity. There is talk in inner circles of transferring Rev. Piercy, of the Methodist Church, to another field. Glasgow, in unison, declares this out of reason because in the first place, Rev. Piercy has much unfinished business in Glasgow, both of religious and civic nature; because in second place, he has not yet been in Glasgow the entire period allotted him; because next, has and is doing the city of Glasgow and its peoples, and his Church, a wonderful good. It would, we repeat, be public calamity to transfer him now.
