MT. VERNON, ROCKCASTLE COUNTY KY., FRIDAY, MAY 31. 1912.
G. H. Reynolds died on the 17,
or May aud was laid to rest on
the 18th, in the Pine Hill cemetery
He leaves a wife and several
children and a host of friends to
mourn his death. On the 18th.
Mrs. Smothers died and was laid
to 1 est on the 19th. in the Griffin
cemetery. She leaves a son and
a host of friends to mourn her
death. Also on the igth there
was a burying in the Pine Hill
cemete3-, a son of Charley
Thomason's wife. Brother Bell
conducted the services at the
Mr. Editor it looks like that
Pine Hill will soon come to tl.e
front after being dead so long. The
work has begun in earnest.
There aie quite a number of men
at work opening the coal mines
and making cross ties for the
company, and there are 8 or 10
carpenters here to go to work on
houses for the laborers and we
understand that the company
wants 40 or 50 men at once to
work on the railroad track and
other work. Mr. Hutchcraft is
here and several other gentlemen
who belong to the company or
represents the company. We
learn when they get the plant in
operation it will give work for
5oo to 800 men. Then that will
give us a town of from 4000 to
6000 population. Land is going
up every day. Uncle George Doan
sold A. J. Pike a site for the
erection of a store house a few
days ago. Have not Iparned the
price he paid. Sam Reynolds
has some lots in front of the
Baptist church and has been offered
a fancy price for them by several
parties. Win. Hansel has been
offered a nice price for bis property.
Sam-Reynolds is building a nice
3 room cottage on the hill near
Wm. Hansels store. W. R.
Thomas and Wm. Mardis are
doing the carpenter woik. We
understand that A. J. Pike will
commence his store house in a
few days. He has the lumbar
already sawed at Tom Paynes'
mill. Tom Payne will move his
mill on tte companys land at
once to cut lumber for them. It is
to be hoped that in a short time
we can hear several whistles
around Pine Hill. As Mr. Sparks
writes in last weeks paper, we
hope to see a hotel in Pine Hill
as well as Mt. Vernon. We have
four stores now in Pine Hill and
will soon have another one and
we expect the company will build
a large commissary soon. Then
we will expect to keep all the
business in Pine Hill tbat we can
get. Then we can compete with
our sistei town, Mt. Vernon.
Whoop up Pine Hill and help to
push the good work on. It will
prove a blessing to the county.
Mrs. John Sears has come from
Corbin to spend the summer with
her sister, Mrs. Mary Hansel in

baby are visiting his parents at
