there is no provision for separate

Let Have It.
The good ladies of the community,
tired as they justly may be of seeing
the unsightly condition of the park,
are trying to make some arrangements
to beautify it and make it a little more

hoped that the city, the county or
whoever owns it will make them a fee
simple title to it, in which event we
are fully satisfied it will quickly become
a tning of beauty instead of something
of which we all are ashamed as it is in
its presnt condition.

Off For Rockcastle.
John M. Farra and R. L. Elkin left
on last Saturday for Rockcastle Springs
for a weeks fishing, going through the
country and driving a mule. It seems
rather strange that these gentlemen
should take this long trip in view of the
fact that the new game laws are being
so rigidly enforced and some of our
local Nimrods are occasionally "getting
a bite," in Dix river. However, they
will have the advantage of having no
one to deny the authenticity of the
miraculous stories of their catch which
they will tell on their retqrn.

last Sunday and his remains were in
terred in the Goshen cemetery on Mon
day afternoon. Young Elam was tak
en ill about two weeks ago with ear
ache, he suffered several convulsions
and no relief could be afforded him
that would prove permanent. Young
Elam was a bright industrious young
man and held the respect of all who
knew him. Much sympathy is express
ed for the parents in their distress.
Mr. Elam is one of the best citizens in
the county and has been particularly
unfortunate in the last few years;
while cutting wood he lost an eye from
a flying splinter, and about eighteen
months since another son, Calvin Elam,
was killed in Paris Ky. during an
electrical storm, he being employed by
a telephone company and up a pole
