A NEEDED IMPROVEMENT.
For weeks a rumor has been current here to the effect that the
Mt. Sterling2Water, Light & Ice Company has been absorbed by
some capitalists, who are buying up a number of similar plants in
Kentucky, but we have not felt authorized to use it, until we verified
the rumor sufficiently to justify a belief in its accuracy.
We are also told, by one in a position to know, that a day cur
rent will soon be furnished the citizens of Mt. Sterling. This will be
a great convenience!, and an improvement our city has long needed.
Machinery of all kinds, including the ordinary sewing machine, can
thenjbe operated by electricity.
The same authority also informed us that if a franchise could be
secured at a reasonable price the new owners would furnish electricity
to farmers living near enough to justify the cost of erecting poles,
We sincerely hope our information is correct. The local com
pany has needed some new life and additional capital for a long time.
