ESTEEMED CITIZEN PASSES

The death of Dr. M. D. Settle, bet
ter known as "Unci Msrk," Septem
ber 7th, cast a gloom ovr th town
and community in which h had lived
so long. Tho ho had been in failing
haalth for many months, h was ever
bright and cheerful and never mur
ine red because of his afflictions. We
cannot refrain from saying that no
mere beautiful character ever lived.
Ha had practiced medicine for about
40 years snd never questioned whether
thr would be sny psy befor h
ministered to th sick, and no ons
was ever turned from his door hun

to tell of the many good traits this
wonderful old gentleman had. God
blessed him with a long life. Had h
lived until January 9, 1923, he would
bav been 81 years old. H had been
a member of tho Baptist Church for

An event of unusual interest to
many people in Berea, especially
those connected with th College, was
the marriage today at IS o'clock in

years a teacher in th Academy of

the welfare of the entire Institution.
She was a member of th Dramatic

She came to Berea from New York

IIF.R EA CHAPTER AND FRIENDS
HAVE OUTING ON THE
Berea Chapter No. 151 held Its
first annual picnic Saturday, Sept.
9. in which a large number of guests
from Berea and surrounding terri
tory participated. Most of the day
was spent on the Kentucky river,
tho the picnic began at 6:30 in the
morning when trucks and automo
biles left Berea for Boonesboro with
the picnickers. Unfortunately the
beat which had been chartered to
carry the party was stuck on the
beach and a small and less accomo
dating barge was used. This bow
ever did not roar the day which was
replete with dancing, singing and
music, story telling, eating, drinking
and merrymaking. W might ex
plain that the drinking stopped at
O nVlnrlr In tha kftrnnnn wtijtn all
tho ice water was gone and the last
bottle of pop was sold.
Each picnicker had brought a full
basket and it was planned to float
down to High Bridge and there
spread dinner together, but the boat
engine went bad about 25 miles form
Boonesboro and the entire party
landed against the bank, where it
stayed for four solid hours while
the boat men quoted Shakespere and
repaired the engine. The four hours
were not wasted as the more agile
and young in spirit spent most of the
time climbing over the cliffs near the
river while the rest of the party
sang religious and other songs and
danced to the ssme type of music that
is now demanded by royalty Jass.
The party divided into small group
for dinner, and tho every member did
not have a chance to sample the food
from every basket, nobody went hun

John" put out during the process of
dinner msde op for th shortage in
At 4:30 the barge about faced and

the evening, and the picnickers left
immediately for their homes. The
story necessarily ends here as noth
ing definite is known ss to the hour
that everybody really got home, tho
we have heard that at least one party
made the trip without a blowout.
A letter from California brings
news of the recent death of Mr. Wm.
B. Hutchinson, for more than a quar
ter century a prominent citizen of
Berea. He built the house now used
as the office of the Academy depart

Berea about twenty-five years ao,
