Judge G. A. McCormick
and Daughter Struck
By C. & 0. Train.
Terrible Accident Occurs at
Crossing on Owlngsvllle Pike.
One of the most distressing ac
cidents that over happened in
Montgomery county occurred at
the Owingsville pike crossing last
Thursday when the West-bound
C. & 0., train No. 25, due at Mt.
Sterling at 7:12 a. m., but which
on that day was about one hour
and one-half late, struck the buggy
in which County Judge G. A. Mc
Cormick and his daughter, Miss
Florence, were on their way to
this city. Miss Florence was kill
ed almost instantly, the buggy
completely demolished, the horse
killed and the Judge receiving a
terrible fracture of the skull
Strange to say, while the horse
was knocked several feet off the
track, the bodies of both the Judge
and his daughter were carried
about two hundred yards from
the crossing on the cow-catcher of
the engine. As soon as the train
could be stonned the crew rushed
forw'jarc anditfd all' they could un
der the circumstances, tney placed
the victims in the baggage car and
brought them to the depot where
physicians were hurriedly sum
moned. The" body of Miss Mc
Cormick was taken to the under
taking establishment of Sutton &
Eastin and Judge McCormick wns
taken to the office of 'one of the
attending physicians and later he
was removed to the residence of
his cousin, Mr. John Greenwade,
on North Maysville street.
Ollie N. Garr, a former Mt.
Sterling man, but who has been
living in Lexington for several
years, was the engineer in charge
of the train said that his fireman
yelled at him just as they were
going over the crossing and that
he grabbed the brakes but being
on the opposite side from which
the Judge and his daughter wore
approaching did not see them un
til after the train was stopped
some two hundred yards beyond
the crossing. This is one of
the most dangerous crossings in
the county and coming toward Mt.
Sterling it is impossible to see an
approaching train until nearly on
the track and the railroad com-

railroad commission to either
grade the high bank on the South
side of the track to lessen the dan
ger, put up a gate or lower
grade of the pike and elevate track
so' that roadway would pass under
the railroad track, as accidents
have accurred here before and sev
eral times people have nearly been
caught by trains.
Mr. Garr who has been running
on this road for thirty-two years
was very much effected by the
accident and it was with a sorrow
ing heart, apd tear dimmed eyes, ho
left the depot where the victims of
his steel monster lay.

The wedding of Miss Mary
Blevins, of this county, to Mr.
Gratton Woodson, of Middlesboro,
was solemnized at the Phoenix
Hotel in Lexington Tuesday morn
ing. Tho wedding had been an
nounced to take place at the home
of the bride this evening but the
couple decided to fool their friends,
so the bride, accompanied by her
aunt, Mrs. A. S. Hart, took the
7 o'clock train for Lexington Tues
day morning where the ceremony
was performed. After a short
bridal trip South the couple will
be at home to friends in Middles

Mr. George Blevins, is a popular
member of the younger set and is
considered by many the most
beautiful girl in Montgomery
county. By her charming person
ality and winsome disposition she
has ever been a favorite among
her associates who regret exceed
ingly to see her leave Mt. Ster

married life may be one long day
of happiness and that her life's
pathway may always be strewn
Mr. Woodson is a brother-in-law
of Mr. Chenault Cockrell and
a partner of his in business. He
is said to be a most excellent
young business man of sterling
worth and splendid morals and is
indeed fortunate in securing such
an attractive girl for a life com

The first tobacco sale of the
year was held at the Farmers
Tobacco Warehouse last Wednes
day. There were about 120,000
pounds on the floor, but few crops
of high grade tobacco, most of it
being the cheaper grades. Several
of the large concerns were repre
sented and considering the grade
of tobacco offered the prices ob
tained were satisfactory. On Fri
day a sale was conducted at the
Burley Tobacco Warehouse Co.'s
plant on the Levee pike and about
100,000 pounds were offered, the
grade of the tobacco was slightly
better than that offered at the
Farmers' house on Wednesday
and consequently the average
prices obtained were better. A
gentle rain fell all day Tuesday
and a splendid tobacco season'
seems assured, and with two
good warehouses here able to
handle the crops splendidly, we
see no reason why the farmers of.
Montgomery and adjoining coun
ties should haul their tobacco to
Lexington. Bring it to Mt. Ster
ling and you will get the highest
There will be a sale Wednesday
morning at the Farmers' Ware
house, beginning promptly at nine
o'clock, and a sale at the Burley
Warehouse Friday morning.
