PUBLLSHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY LN THE YEAR.
PARIS, BOURBON COUNTY, KENTUCKY, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1S22
SBTPOBT THE HEALTH AND
On next Thursday afternoon, at
three o'clock, the annual meeting
of the Bourbon County Health and
Welfare League for the election o
officers will be held in the County
Every white person in Paris and
Bourbon county over sixteen years
of age, who is not already a mem
ber, is invited and urged to become
a member of the League. This work
has been carried on for the past
eight years by just a few men and
women of the community, and while
words of approval are greatly ap
preciated, new and interested work
ers are needed.
It is generally recognized that the
League has been a success and has
now become a necessity, but the
question arises: Are the citizens of
the county doing their part, and
how long would the League have
continued in existence if it had been
dependent upon their contributions
of time and money?
The time of the year for replen
ishing the treasury of the League is
also at hand and a new plan has
been devised, which, if successful,
will enable it to do new and more
efficient work. The merchant, the
farmer the professional man, are
asked to come into the League as
"$10.00 Members." They are asked,
men and women, to come in now as
a "$10.00 Member," or at least as a
regular member, and give their
money and co-operation in this most
necessary and worthy work.
Remember the date and place' of
meeting, the County Court room in
the Bourbon county court house, at
three o'clock, Thursday- afternoon,
October 5. If you find it impossible
to come there, leave your dues at
the First National Bank.

HORSES KILLED Bt LIGHTNING.
Ernest Stone, farmer, residing on
the Jackstbwn pike, about three
miles from, Paris,, was driving a
wheat drill, to which three horses
were hitched abreast, when a flash
of lightning came from what appar
ently was a clear sky, killing the
three horses instantly.
Mr. "Stone was not hurt or stun
ned by" the lightning, and at first
was unable to understand what had
"Happened." Investigation showed that
each of the animals had been killed
by the shock, the lightning then
passing along the iron tongue of the
drill to the wooden swingle trees,
whe're" it leaped to the ground. The
fact that Mr. Stone was holding the
neather Hne jn

saved his life.

A Paris man who is very much in
terested in Bourbon county, and its
points of interest, makes the sug
gestion that the Commercial Club
should have a large sign painted
and placed over both entrances to
the Nld covered" bridge spanning
Stoner Creek, at the foot of Main
street, bearing the words, "This
Bridge Was Erected in 1833, by
Louis Wernwag." t f
He further states that his sug
gestion was inspired by frequent in
quiries made by tourists passing
through Paris, who comment on the
apparent old age of the, structure.
Louis "Wrenwag was in his day a
noted civil engineer and bridge
builder, who designed and con
structed some of the notable bridges
through this section, which have
withstood the ravages of time and
the stress of weather.
The suggestion is an excellent
one, and should be carried out by
the Commercial Club. Then, some
day, perhaps, when the old relic is
replaced by a modern steel struct
ure, we may recall how the old
bridge demonstrated the value
of good material and thorough
