Captain also proposes to put his

Ed Fothergill, for many years
the foreman of the True Kentuckian
office, died of galloping consump
tion last Friday, at 11:30 a. m.
He was in the 35th year of his age,
and by dint of hard strokes, day and
night, he accumulated a snug little
start in life, which was invested in
city property. His life was insur
ed in the Ancient Order of United
Workmen, for $6,200. This, with
his other property, will be heired
by his brother, Charlie, and his
sister, Mrs. Eph. January.
The remains of John Cronin,
who committed suicide in Mt. Ster

lot of the Catholic Cemetery here,

on his father's lot in the conse
crated grounds, but being barred
from" that privilege, owingto it be
ing -in strict violation of the rules
of the Catholic church, he appealed
to Bishop -Toebbe, of Covington, who
confirmed ther action of the church

Col. John Caldwell prepared two

riving at the pond, they were over
whelmed with surprise, to find that
they had left their two minnow
buckets in town, and but for their
happy streak of luck in finding a
little willow-covered lunch basket
with a cork stopper, they would
have been all broken up with grief
and sorrow. Moral: Always carry
a little supply of grief-killer when
you go fishing.
