FISH FRY AT
Bourbon County Fish Club And
Their Guests Spend An
BIG FRY AND LITTLE FRY
The Bourbon County Fish and
Game Club was host Tuesday at a
barbecue given to about two hun
dred and fifty invited guests in a
woodland on the Xalapa Farm of E.
F. Simms, near Paris. The gather
ing was a representative one, com
prising ministers, bankers, lawyers
and business men, and there were
delegations from Lexington, Win
chester, Shelbyville, Cynthiana, and
a number of other Central Ken
tucky towns. The object of the
gathering together of these leading
citizens of the Bluegrass was to en
deavor to impress upon them the
splendid work which is being done
in Bourbon county by the Fish and
Game Club in their efforts to enforce t
the recent laws along these lines
passed by the State Legislature, and
to further impress upon them the
great good the county is deriving
During the early hours of the
morning the weather was threaten
ing, but about noon the sun broke
through the rapidly disappearing
clouds and shone brightly among
the vari-colored hues of the foliage
of the forest trees, which are never
so beautiful as in the early fall.
The location was an ideal one. The
splendid turnpike from Paris led to
the gates of ' the farm, through
which asphalt driveways lined with
overhanging trees, brought the visit
ors to the large woodland, with its
deep carpet of bluegrass and sturdy
oak and maple trees clad in their
early autumn dress. Long before
the first guest arrived preparations
for the feast to be served were well
under way. Deep trenches had been
dug, and over these were placed the
mutton to be barbecued. Over other
trenches large caldrons sent forth
the appetizing aroma of burgoo.
Still other trenches held mammoth
pans in which were being fried to
a crisp brown hundreds of bass,
newlights, bream and other species
of fish. At 1 o'clock, after the appe
tites of the guests had been whetted
-by the smell of the cooking, the call-
for dinner was announced, and fol-?
lowing the giving of thanks by Rev.
T. S. Smylie, pastor of the Paris
Presbyterian church, the guests'
formed in double file, and proceeded
to the large table, where the follow
ing menu awaited them:
Burgooo, barbecued lamb, fried
fish, old county ham, fried chick
en, hard boiled eggs, beaten biscuit,
sandwiches, pickles, cakes, dough
nuts, coffee and cigars.
After the inner man had been ful
ly satisfied addresses were made by
Judge James G. Denny, of Lexing
ton, J. Quincy Ward, of Cynthi
ana, Sam Clay, of Paris, and
Mr. Noonan, of Winchester. Judge
Denny said that in his opinion there
was no place in the South where the
spirit of comradeship and true
sportsmanship were more fully de
veloped than in Bourbon county. He
paid a tribute to E. F. Simms, owner
of Xalapa Farm, whom he said was
one of America's foremost sports
men, and also to the memory of the
late Thomas Henry Clay, Jr., whom
he termed the prince of all
sports. Judge Denny praised
the efficient service given the
people of the State by
given the people of the State by J.
Quincy Ward, former head of the
State Fish and Game Commission.
Bourbon county, he said, is leading
in the great work mapped out by
the Fish and Game Commission in
endeavoring to conserve the fish and
game of the State. He pledged the
hearty co-operation of Fayette
Mr. Ward said ne considered
Bourbon county to be one of, if not
the best county in the State. He
blushed for shame, he said, to have
it said that there had been thirty
eight conviction in the county re
cently for violations of the fish and
game laws. Game and fish in Ken
tucky, he said, in the matter of food
alone, amounted to a sum of at Jeast
$3,000,000 annually. He advocated
an increased hunting license, to be a
joint fishing and hunting one, with
children and women free. He con
cluded by urging the farmers and to
bacco growers to do all in their
power to advance the final success
of the proposed Co-operative Bur
ley Tobacco Marketing Association,
which meant so much to the farmers
and business men. Mr. Noonan and
Sam Clay followed with interesting
speeches. Among the visitors pres

Harry L. Mitchell, Former Parisian
Charged With a Statutory
CONFINED IN REFORMATORY
Charged with a serious offense,
an alleged criminal assault on an
eleven-year-old Lexington girl, Mil
dred Sorrell, Harry L. Mitchell, of
that city, a former resident of Paris,
is a prisoner in the Frankfort Re
formatory, where he was taken
Tuesday night, for safe-keeping, on
an order from Circuit Judge Stoll.
Mitchell stoutly maintains his inno
cence, and denies even knowing the
The girl first told her parents
that she had been assaulted in Dun
can pak by a colored man, and later
made a confession, in which she
stated that her first accusation was
untrue, and that she had been en
ticed into an automobile driven by
Harry L. Mitchell, of 611 Elsmere
Park, and that he was the one who
had assaulted her, threatening her
with death if she told of the occur
rence. The alleged assault, she said
was committed in Mitchell's auto
mobile while driving on the Win
chester pike, near Lexington, Sun
Mitchell was arrested by Lexing
ton police and detectives at his
home Tuesday night, following the
girl's confession, and was taken in
an automobile immediately after
ward to the Frankfort Reformatory
by order of Circuit Judge Stoll.
Warrants for his arrest had been
sworn out by the girl's father,
Henry Sorrell, of Lexington. Two
indictments were returned against
him by a special grand jury Monday
afternoon, and were served before
the prisoner was taken to Frankfort.
At the Reformatory, Mitchell stoutly
denied the assault and stated that he
did not even know the child, that
he had never taken any young girl
in his machine, and that the only
time he was ever in Duncan Park
was when he had taken his, adopted
son, Jack Mitchell, for a ride.
Mitchell was visited in the Re
formatory by his son, Wm. Mitchell,
I accompanied by his attorneys, Robt.
jpramum, oi .uexingion, ana xiouert
C. Talbott, of Paris, who made ar
rangements for defending their
client. William Mitchell stated that
he knew -beyond the shadow of a
doubt that his father was innocent
of the charge.
It is believed Mitchell will be
arraigned some time next week and
the two indictments returned by the
grand jury Monday in the name of
John Doe read to him.
No further statement concerning
the facts of the case was made by
the authorities. Police, it is known,
are continuing their work on the
case and are obtaining witnesses.
Just what the proof to be offered
by the Commonwealth will be is for
the most part a secret, while mem
bers of the law firm of Franklin,
Talbott & Chapman, attorneys for
Mitchell, also have declined to make
any statement bearing on the case.
Mitchell, however, will be kept in
the Reformatory until his trial as
he is not eligible for bail.
The news of Mr. Mitchell's arrst
came as a shock to the people of
Paris, many of whom have been his
warm personal friends. Many claim
that the serious accident in which
he was a victim on the L. & N. rail
road several years ago, had left him
in such a fHion, physically and
mentally, as not to be responsible
for his acts. At the trial of the
case in the Bourbon Circuit Court,
many reputable physicians gave tes
timony to his impaired mental and
Mr. Mitchell was formerly in the
employ of the L. & N. railroad as a
freight conductor until he was in
capacitated by an accident. Follow
ing the accident he brought suit
against the L. & N. and was award
ed a verdict for $30,000, which was
upheld by a decision of the Court of
Appeals. Mr. Mitchell opened a real
estate office in Paris with his son,
William Mitchell, as partner, and
did a successful business. Some ago
he disposed of his Paris home and
moved with his family to Lexington,
retaining his Paris business in
charge of his son, making daily trips
to and from Lexington.

In our last issue we called atten

in preserving the historic old Came

grounds, near Paris. The movement
is gaining strength and meetimr
with the earnest approval of all vyho
have been approached in regard to

Barton W. Stone planted and or
ganized the old Cane Ridge Christian
church in Bourbon county, Ken
tucky, in the year 1804. It was th
first church organized since tn
great apostacy with the Bible as the
only rule of faith and practice and
the name Christian as the only fam
ily name. From this small begin
ning in a little log church house at
Cane Ridge, the Christian church
has grown to its present propor
tions. The congregation at Cane
Ridge, which we may truly call
"the Mother Church," has disband
ed and no regular services are held
there now. But the building is still
intact, and the grounds where the
body of Barton W. Stone and other
immortals sleep, and where monu
mnts are erected to their memory,
are under the supervision of and be
long to the Christian church.
This old historic building and
these monuments will go to ruin,
unless provision is made for their
preservation. It seems fitting that
every member of the Church of
nhTiHt hA -world over should have
I the privilege and pleasure of sub
i scribing to a fund, the proceeds
from which are to De useu to pre
serve and perpetuate this historic
building, these beautiful manumenta
