' RICHMOND LORES MANY FROM CITIES Nine Out Of Ten Decide To Stay and They Give Their Rea sons For It .While it may not be characteristic of other towns in Kentucky about seven out of cyery eight newcomers, are from cities, and, once here, they seem to become "anchored". There is a steady influx of representatives of -all trades coming to Richmond, and out of five who have come here and to work and were interviewed, none has signified his intention of leav ing, although some of them are ex pert mechanics and oing more arduous work out side of their trade. Their own opinions of why they selected Richmond, leaving the bright lights of the cities, can best be told by themselves, when they explain their own personal reasons, for readers of the Daily Register. Frank Houscr, decorator "I cama here a few days ago, just to look around. I came from Detroit. I am going on a farm and help raise tobacco. I have had more fresh air since I came here than I had in De troit buildings where I was shut up, in a year's time. .Think of it ma working on a farm! But I believe I will like it, and I have saved money and may be a little ..landowner here some day myself. I also have a place for my brother and. I know that ha will not lose any time coming! when he gets that letter of mine". Young Houser, who received about $7.50 per day at work in Detroit, said that he would have more money at the end of a season here at half that amount of wages, than he could have saved in the city, and be "out in the open". He will go to the farm of Richard Bcntley, in the eastern part of Madi son county. "And,, say", he asked confidingly "Do you suppose I will be lucky enough to hit close to one of those famous fishing streams I have heard so much about?" Charles Shaftner, mechanic "I came to Richmond several weeks ago and thought that one week would let me .out. I am still here and expect to move my family here.. I am getting more wages ; than the : mechanics in Cincinnati, and can breathe fresh ozone all day long. Me for Rich mond." . John .L-JBakcwell, painter "I have ! been .busy ever since I hit the place. Me Ji35Hbnnm" ' Wellston Richey, laborer "Say, I, Lhave a job and-it is most too much for me; but I wilfctick until this work is finished when I will go to work ai another job "which has bsen promised me. I wish these folks, who are so kind every other way, would build me a nice house, and I wonld lose no time in getting my family here." James Harrington, machinist "Say, I can get much more money in the city at my trade than here doing what I am now, but you 'live' in a place like this, and that counts for much. The town just suits me and the only way they can make'me get out is to cut off . my work, which, I think is very improbable." CALL FOR SUSPECT : CHECK MADE THURSD AS A youne: man who issued a sus j pected check' on A. Dobroysky. a few days a;o was in the city again Thurs day . rnd called for the ' check, upon which payment was refused.- When informed that the check had been turned over to the authorities for in vestigation, the young man left the store, stating that he would return later for the paper. He has not call ed for it yet however. Mr. Dobrow sky is of the belief that the fellow is making an effort to reclaim the check with the view of destroying it.
