great extent, upon the condition
of the roads, and this being the
case, we should all be interested:
in this great movement.
The farmer should be interested
because good roads would increase
the value of his land, would en
able him to market his crops wilh
less expense, would enable his '
children to be more punctual in
attendance to their respective
schools, and would enable those
who live within any reasonable
distance of a high school oe graded
school to send their children to
them without being burdened
with a board bill. It would, also,
help both young and old relig
iously by placing churches within
reach of all.
Of course goed r .ads would bo
a greater blessing to the farmer
than to any other class of people,
but I wish to say that good roads,
would be encouraging to the dot:
tors and to the ministers in their
great work. But roads often de
lav them on their missions an. I
thus cause them much sorrow and
If we had good roads it wouid
encourage commerce by bringing
the farmer and merchant in closer
contact and I am sure it would
prove beneficial to both.
I wish to appeal to all of my
friends and voters to support the
issuing ot bonds for the purpose
of building good roads in our
county, and in my opinion, all who
do not support this cause are vot
iug against the welfare of the peo
pie in ourjeounty in general. ZZ.
Yours for better roads,

THE PIKE FAMILY REUNION.
The above picture stiw, t.ie Pi u family reunion held at Brodhead, on Sunday, September 2Qth, showing one hundred and one
members of that large family pr ent and there were eighty-five who were not present. It was the effort of Rev. A. J. Pike in bringing
all the members of his family t-gdther aud at his home in Brodhead the reunion was held The members here represented are decendents
of the late Jacob B. Pike, who came to this, county in 1862 from the state of Tennessee a.rd, who until his death not so many years since,
was an honored citizen ofj.the county. He was the father of a large family of children, all qE whom are still living, viz : Rev.A. J. Pike,
of Brodhead, Ky ; W. C.Pike, Pulaski, Ky ; B. M. Pike, Frederick, Oklahoma Mrs.. Mary Jane Brannamon. Uupp.Tenn.; Mrs. Sarah E.
Releford, Pine Hill, Ky.; M. J. PikeJ Livingston, Ky.; J. B. Pike, Pine HiU, Ky 5 R;. P. Pike, Blanch, Ky.; Rev. E. K. Pike, Taylorsville.
Ky; Mrs. Margaret Coo"ke, Los Angeles. California; Jqcob E. Pike, Livingston, Ky.and G. W. Pike, Lebanon Junction. All the above
named brothers and sisters, with their wives, an.d chttd.ren, and grand children, were present, making the total of the one hundred and one
shown in the group. From eyery part tftey came to attend this reunion and for several days before hand, nearly every train arriving at
Brodhead brought from one tc ten members of the family to enjoy that blessing and happiness which had not been experienced for many
years, and which will never be again, as it was'upon' this occasion, as one of the number shown in this picture has since passed to his
reward. On Sunday was the reunion proper which was held at the Brodhead fair grounds, consisting of a basket dinner, music art1
preaching, whicn was enjoyed by hundreds of people. No one was ever happier than the Rev. A. J. Pike, who cansed the coming togethe1"
and it is the sincere hope of his many admiring friends in this and other counties, that the life of this useful and ardent advocate of the
owly Nazarene may be, spared for many years to come and. that in his declining years he may be the recipient of mHy such., jkasa
i occasions. ,
