ER IS MISSING
L John Suddarth Left Home
Wed. A. M. Mysteriously.
.. Brother of Mrs. B. H.
John Suddarth, a prominent and
well known middle-aged farmer, has
been missing since Wednesday morn
ing from his home on his farm in
the Millstone locality, between Can
nclton and Tobinsport, and all effort
upon the part of his relatives and
neighbors to locate him have been in
vain. Mr. Suddarth arose on Wednes
day morning about five o'clock, as
was his custom, and after starting the
fire in the- kitchen stove, he left the
'house. It was thought by his wife
that he had gone to attend to the
stock at the barn and nothing was
thought of his absence until the
usual time for him to come to break
fast had passed. A search about the
barn and premises did not locate him
and the members of the family know
ing that he sometimes took his gun
and went out hunting upon the farm
before breakfast went to sec if-he had
taken the gun. The gun and two load
ed shells that were kept in the house
in. an accustomed place were gone.
After several hours had passed and
the man did not return home a
search of the farm and surrounding
country was begun but no trace of
him could be found. On Thursday Ed
Suddarth, a brother, and Dr. White
"were in Caxinelton making inquiries
but no one had seen him here. No
body in the vicinity of the Suddarth
home had seen him and his sudden
disappearance is proving a mystery to
his family and friends. Mr. Suddarth
Was in his usual good-natured mood
and if he had any trouble of any kind
be kept it to himself. Nothing unusual
.was noticed about his conduct. Every
foot of ground within several miles of
the Suddarth, farm has been carefully
gone over and no trace of the missing
man has been discovered. No cause
can possibly be assigned, as to why
he would want to leave home. Can
The missing man. has six children
at home, and he is a brother of Mrs.
B. H. Parrish, of Cloverport.

with paralysis and the faithful ones'
watched by the bedside, as though
she had fallen asleep, but she never
regained consciousness, it was that
sleep which knows no waking. There
was no dark valley, only
"Beautiful hands at the gateway to

Eyes looking down from your Hea
Beautiful, beautiful beckoning come."
Mrs. Crawford was born in Breck

CEDAR HILL FARM
City Council Raises License to
$100 on Poultry House But
Holds it up for Legality.
Mayor John A. Barry called the
City Council together Friday night
on a special call to take up the license '
tax on the. wholesale poultry house
here by request of several citizens
unjust, and would drive farm trade
who claimed the license of $100 was
from Cloverport. The meeting drew
a larger crowd out that night than
has been at a council meeting for
Mayor Barry made a statement that
the ordinance had only been posted
and not a law, and the only way it
could be amended was for some of the
council who had voted for the or
dinance to make a motion to recon
sider it, but members of the council
refused to do this and the ordinance
will be taken to court to test the
legality of it. In order not to inter
fere with the produce that was fast
accumulating a motion was made sus
tained by the council to allow the
poultry house and merchants to con
tinue their business as here-to-fore,
as no enforcement would be made
pending legal action.
The Poultry House here is operated
by Armour &. Co., incorporated, of
Chicago, and the company boasts that
it docs a $40,000 to $30,000 business
here annually but it only lists $375
worth of stock, which consists of
empty egg cases and coops and about
about $08 worth butter, eggs, cream
and poultry; the rest of the stock
when in coops, cases etc., are intran
sit and cannot be taxed. Therefore
the city council thought it was justly
entitled to derive some benefit of this
business as all local business concerns
are taxed by city, county and state.
Armouj- and Company's wholesale
Poultry House here only pays taxes,
amounting to about $L'.37.
