The J. W.n Zaring Grain
The citizens of almost every
town, and of the County also do
not generally " give proper en
couragement and praise to the
commercial enterprises, located in
their town. Right here in Rich
mond is an enterprise the magni
tude of which probably half of
the citizens of the town and coun
ty are not aware..
We, refer to the J. W. Zaring
Grain & Mill Co., one of the big
gest and strongest commercial
enterprises in the county. The
daily output of this company is
two hundred and fifty barrels of
flour a day, besides hundreds of
bushels of meal. The product of
this mill is classed as Al, and is
shipped to hundreds of points in
Kentucky, most of it however,
going to the eastern section of the
state. Within the last few days
they received orders for seven
carloads of flour, meal and ship
stuff from as many firms.
The company employs about
twenty men, operating a day and
night shift The men employed
get paid every Saturday evening
and most of the money is spent
with home merchants. Thus you
see that business is largely, or
should be, co-operative, therefore
it is the duty of each citizen to
lend encouragement to every en
terprise tending to upbuild

The Dixie Minstrels
The "hit" of the season was the
Dixie Serenader Minstrels seen
and heard at the Opera House
Wednesday and repeated by re
quest on Thursday evening.
With an all-starcast and such
soloists as Keller, Nelson, Bax
ter, Green, Elderi Adams, Hicks,
cowman and Wiggins, it was ai
notable entertainment for Rich
mond opera goers. .
Indeed the stage sitting, cos
tumes and acting generally would
have done credit to AI G. Fields
and his knights of color. Mr.
George presided most gracefully
as "middle man" while Messrs.
Green and Nelson distinquished
themselves as end men by their
ready wit and laughable antics.
Mr. Wm. Elder was one of the
starriest "stars," his dancing and
singing being characterized by
the ease of an old stager, in fact
the entire performance was par
excellence and Richmond is to be
congratulated on having such a
number of talented young men.
The entertainment closed with
three excellent pictures making
an evening of pure enjoyment.
