f
Foxes do not seem to be as scare
asJt seemed several weeks ago be
fore George W Gill of Shelby ville
advertised for one thousand Frank
fort has been full of foxes ever since
and they have all been headed toward
Shelby iille where the market for fox
t l tes seems to be good Jesse R1d le
I was the first Frankfort man to cap
tas
r Iture any foxes He found a litter of
five very small ones on his farm near
town and captured them all without
any trouble The little animals were
J 7 not afraid of man and were as gentle
Zas kittens Mr Riddle has them in
I
Ijn page in his ward and the children
pi In the neighborhood have been play
Ing with them without injury either
Lcto the foxes or to the children
ii WIT Innes brought to the News
W office on Wednesday a litter of six
fit which he had dug out of their nest
trion the Holt farm in this county The
foxes were put in a box with a wire
netting over it and displayed in the
111ndow of the News office where they
1attracted must attention many Frank
y fort people never having seen a fox
before The little animals were about
i1three months old and were badly
i frightened at the sight of so many
r people but as they becaaio used to
jfbeing stared at they consented to
j move about in their box InatSail of
< staying in a pile in one corner and
the crowd which watched thaw all day
1 saw what a fox really looks like
Mr Innes saw the foxes playing
about the den which was in a clay
i bank and when he went after them
1 I they ducked for cover Inside the
f den The old fox which was on guard
I near the den left hurriedly being only
IJI fthe male so Mr Innes gathered in
I4 i the bunch using buckskin gloves to
i handle the foxes
11Since then other men have appeared
Tfan the scene with foxes ono man hav

J been overrun with foxes if the editor
twould have consented to take them

ARMED SOLDIERS
Guard Tobacco On Its Way
To Market

MARCIAL HALEY TOOK NO CHAN
CES ON NIGHT RIDERS ON
SECOND TRIP
Accompanied by a squad of State
guards in charge of the Sheriff ofI
Harrison county to Cynthiana and
making their way from that place toW
Lexington unaccompanied but heav
fly armed Marcial Haley and son well
known farmers residing near Mel
burn postofllce in Bracken county sold
their crop of tobacco amounting to
about 6000 pounds at the warehouse
in Lexington
LexingtonWhile
While en route to market one day
last week they were attacked about
two miles from Cynthlana by a band
of nightriders one of the loads of to
bacco was overturned into a small
stream and Marcial Haley was com
pelled at the point of a gun to turn
the other two wagons which he was
driving and return home by the same
pursuaslve force he was forced to
tolls an oath that he would place the
tobacco In the pool of the Sicloty of
Equity and that he would not again
attempt to dispose of it in any other
manner
Upon his re urn home he at once
made an appeal to the State author
ities for assistance and a squad from
the company of sildiers that have
been detailed to this district were as
signed to go with the Sheriff and see
that both he and the tobacco were
gotten aifely to the market They
got through what Mr Haley believed
tobe the dangerous part of the trij
from his home to Cynthiana and from
that place they went to Lexington I
Although very relucant to talk Mr
Haley stated that no body of men on
earth can prevent him from disposing I
of what rightfully is his and for that
reason he made such an exceptional
effort and sold his tobacco
SNAKE MARY
7FAILS TO RUN ACCORDING TO
SPECIFICATIONS
Frankfort Horse Lands Place In Firsb
Lexingtonh
Frankfort men who are interested
in horses and who follow the races
dropped some of thcir coin at Lexing
Ion lust Saturday when Snake Mary
owned by Frankfort men failed to
poke her nose In front when thewlre
WES reached The horse belongs to
Joe Weltzel Polk Laffoou and several
other Frankfort men who formed a
company and bought several good
horses Their first start this year was
pl Lexington Saturday when Snake
as the mare is called was entered
She ran a good race but was not quite
good enough ami Ott managed to lead
her in second place only The Frankfort
fort contingency had played her to
win and none of them had any place
money on her bellevelng that she
would go to the front and win or
would be nowhere The Frankfort
firm has been having hard luck this
year as they have not been able to
get their bosses started though they
were fit and ready on account of the
large number of horses which have
been entered at the Lexington track
With so few tracks running now the
horses are plentiful and the man
agement has to select those which
will run from the entry list The
Fmnkfort horses have been left out
several Mmes but they expect to get
in the running soon and will bo hoard

One of irgest fines ever as

Oil Refining Com
Cout this we
impany guilty
t Elkhorn Cr
I 10000 as p
STJsVas hard fought
several days and
taken to the higher
courtsm prsffort to set aside the
I
verdict The charge was mode that
the oil and refuse from the refinery
which Is located In Georgetown ran
Into the creek and so filled the water
with oil as to Injure the fish sand
make the water unfit to drink
One peculiar feature of the case
was an excursion wUich was conduct
ed by the company last Sunday Every
body In Frankfort who wanted to goI
was transported to Georgetown free
of charge and there an inspection ofI
the refinery was a large part of the
programme It was charged by Bob
Franklin Commonwealths Attorney
that this was done to Influence the
Verdict of the jury or change public
sentiment In this county on the
Sc
question of the reftnery
Fishermen have been nicking com
plaint lately that the fish taken from
Elkhorn are so impregnated with oil
that they are unfit to eat and it was
charged that the water from the creek
was not fit even for cows to drink
Wild tales have been told about the
water which of course have been
told merely as a joke It was said
by one man that the water was drunk
kh
by the cows and there was so much
oil that the milk from the cows was
used to burn Un the lamps of the
people along the creek Fishermen
claim that they were afraid to cook
the fish they caught in the creek for
fear they would explode The creek
is known as one of the most famous
fishing streams In the country and
the fishermen claim that their sport
nhas been ruined by the refinery

bought the place understand that
it contained 85 acres of land but
when a survey was made she found
that It contained but 70 She sued
for 1500 damage for the shorfage
but the lower court dismissed her
petitionI
I ndlscusslng the case the Court
of Appeals says that Mr Roberts of
fered to resdndi the trade if Mrs
Ralley did not desire to keep the
land at the price agreed upon The
lower court struck out this averment
which the Court of Appeals says it
erred in doing The court says that
the lower court was correct in dis
missing as to damages but should
have permitted Mrs Ralley to rescind
the trade in accordance with Mr
Roberts proposal if she desired
Judge Ira Julian represented DI rsA
