The following is an extract
from a letter just received
from Mr Williams regarding
the building ofa large roller
mill at this place You can
say to the people of Anderson
county that the mill which we
will erect and for which we
now have plans drawn will
have a capacity of 200 barrels
a day and will be the most
modern mill in Central Ken
tucky We believe that Law
renceburg centrally located
as it is is the place best suited
for us to locate a mill to han
dle the growth of Central
Kentuckys grain The com
pany is well backed by capital
and experience and work will
be begun just as soon as the
weather will permit While
we are unable to learn as to
the exact location of the new
mill rumor has it that it will
be erected on the railroad not
far froni the depot
Mr Marion L Chowning
our popular Superintendent of
Public Schools has purchased
a half interest in the Ander
son News and will devote
what time he can spare from
his public duties to the gath
ering up of news for the
News Mr Chowning is well
known in the county and
while he has had no expe
rience in the newspaper field
the News readers can rest
assured that he will take to it
like ducks to water and give
them a good readable paper

PARODY BY
O COLEMAN COX Editor lIT
There baR been an awful lot of trouble going on at Washington
About our President selecting for a guest an African Mon
lIe had a fine baked possum and sweet potatoes too
And for a guest be thought of the rest but there was nothing but a nlitirer would do
lIe looked upon Dookcr as his equal and says he dont regret It one bit
Theres no one now object to that since tbe nail on the head hes hit
lIe can dine with them and wine With them and think hes doing right
But wc hired him for four years you know thinking sure that lilt color was white
CHORUS
Coon Coon Coon have you heard what Teddy has done
Coon Coon Coon have you been to Washington
Coon Coon Coon yoU had better go there soon
For Toddy has passed up the white man for a Coon Coon Coon
Presidential timber be was not and he got there Jut through luck
Because be led at San Juan the people on bin cot truck
But now that Negro equality ha baa attempted to set through
lie ba committed suicide himself and split Ills party ho
We bad all bard about his bear bunt and was In hopes he would go again son
But It looks as though he has given up boar and gone to hunting Coon
He will make the game thai bal been saute quite wild before hea done
And bring about a race war by his acts while In Washington
The above song was written by me after reading in the
Louisville Times of Teddy eating with Booker Washington
and so many times have I been asked to publish it that copies
might be had I do so making some few alterations in it

Today we present to our
readers twelve pages of town
and county news We are
conceited enough to think it
the best paper ever published
in Anderson county and for
home news second to no
county paper published in
Kentucky Should you doubt
this statement get out your
rule and measure your inches
of reading matter after which
measure any other paper you
wish and let us know if we
are wrong in our judgment
Remember that the rule must
go on no plate matter no
patent print no copy from
any other paper but on only
that which is new true and
original as is ITs matter
We notice that Capt Peary
is arranging to make another
trip in search of the North
pole It would be a good idea
for him to come down here in
Kentucky and get acclimated
before starting Had he been
here Tuesday morning he
would have been ready for the
trip Wednesday dressed in a
seersucker coat linen duster
buckeye hat and low cut shoes
Mr H S Carl who has
been quite sick for the past
