PARIS COMMERCIAL CLUB NOTES
The Board of Directors of the
Paris Commercial Club met Tuesday
evening in the offices of the Peoples
Deposit Bank with directors Mitchell,
Price, Collier, Rudolph Davis,
Thomas, Withers Davis, Dailey and
A letter was written to the Hon
orable Mayor E. B. January, re
questing that a proclamation or"
other notification be issued to the
the merchants of Paris suggesting
that all places of business be closed
on Thursday afternoon, April 27th,
from 2:30 p. m. to 5:00 p. m. in
order that our local team of the
Blue Grass League may be given the
support of a good attendance on their
The subject of a hotel for Paris
was again discussed at some length.
There is a need for hotel here, rec
ognized by everyone as urgent, but
the recommendation of bankers and
conservative business men is that
the present time for launching a
$200,000 stock selling project is not
auspicious. The Commercial Club has
not permanently laid on the shelf
the idea of a hotel for Paris nor
lias the Board of Directors deserted
the intention cf fostering such a
project. When the concensus of
opinion of sound .business men is
that Paris and Bourbon county is in
financial condition, and unmistaka
ble signs of prosperity point to that
fact, then the Commercial Club
hopes to organize and develop a suc
cessful campaign for a creditable
and profitable hotel in Paris.
It was decided to give a dinner
on May 11, at 6:30 p. m. Roxie
Davis was appointed chairman of the
Committee on Entertainment with
permission to keep 'the plans for this
dinner a secret. We may expect
something in the way of a ver3r pleas
ant surprise, judging from the ex
cellent programmes furnished in the
past by this committee.
The Board of Directors instructed
the Secretary to exprers their ap
preciation to the Bourbon County
Garden Club of the proposed, plan
to plant Cowers and shrubs along
the highways leading into Paris. It
is understood that the plan was
suggested too late in the season to
carry out this year, but it is hoped
that the Garden Club will undertake
this plan of civic improvement.
It was suggested that the Commit
tee on the Full-time Health Depart
ment of Bourbon county and the the
Health and Welfare League meet to
gether and discuss this plan.

body that is not benefited by the

"TRADE AT HOME," EH.
In reading exchanges from a num
ber of nearby Kentucky towns, we
noted the names of many Paris and
Bourbon county people as being
j among shoppers in those places. Of
J course, every free American citizen
has the right to shop where ne or
she pleases, but, we wonder what's
the use of the Commercial Club
slogan, "Trade At Home." What
takes these shoppers to other places?
Is it because of better prices, better
goods or just what? We pause for
j an ,answer.

The name "fish fry" doesn't cover
everything in the way of good things
that wera served' at the annual event
of the Bourbon Game and Fish Club,
held on the Xalapa Farm, near Paris,
Wednesday. At least, that's the
verdict of some three hundred peo
ple who were present and partook of
the delightful and bountiful stores
of good things provided for the in
ner man at this "Fish fry."
Hundreds of big fish, barbecued
mutton, roast pig, beef, ham and
other kinds of sandwiches, and,
other good things too numerous to
mention were served the hungry
guests, who ;more than did justice
to them. The dinner was served on
the banks of the lake on the Simms
estate, and was all that the appe
tite could desire.
After the guests had fully satis
fied their hunger, and the dinner
was over, Mr. Ayelette Buckner,
president of the Club, introduced as
the first speaker, Judge Denis Dun-
don, of Paris who lauded the local
organization for what it was accom
plishing and aiming to accomplish
in the future in the way -of gams
and fish conservation and protection,
and recomme'nding its extension into
a State organization. Judge James
B. Denny, of Lexington, who was
one of the speakers at the event
given at the Fame place last season,
was introduced, and paid a fine
tribute to the Bourbon county fish
ermen, sportsmen, and to the sport
ing spirit that had made Bourbon
county famous for many years. lie
urged support of legislation that
would tend to protect the fish in the
streams of the State. Judge Dsnny
was followed by Representative
John E. Brown, of Shelbyville, a
member of the last Legislature, who
toid of the earnest desire to promote i
and encourage legislation tending
ward the preservation and. conserva
tion of fish and game.
At the cicsa cf the program, the
officials who had served so faithfully
during the past year w'cre re-elected,
as follows: President, Ayelette
Buckner; vice-president, 'Charles
Spears; secretary and treasurer, Jas.
D? McClintock. The Bourbon Fish
and Game Club is rapidly becoming
one of the strongest organizations
in the State, and the earnest efforts
being made by the members and offi
cials to further the game and fish
interest of the country are beins
taken as a model by similar newly
formed organizations in other coun
ties. Among those from out cf town
present were John E. Brown, Judge
Charles Marshall, Allen Bond and
Commonwealth's Attorney H. B.
Kinsolving, of Shelbyville, Jas. Den
ney, Leonard B. Shouse, Dr. Sam
Halley, Samuel B. Walton, H. B.
