Henderson, Ky,, Jan. 25. A strange
story has come to light here of a mys
terious deposit made in the Ohio Val
ley Banking and Trust Company, seven
years ago. The amount was J232, and
it was paid over to the widow of Arch
Denton, who, while living, was a prom
inent and well-to-do farmer of this
It appears that Denton came to tqwn
seven years ago and sold his tobacco
for 1282. He took too many drinks and
was placed in the city prison over
night. When he was released the next
day he didn't have any money and ac
cused the police of robbing him. Re
cently this bank advertised the uncalled
for deposits and sent 1 notice to Mrs,
Denton, and she called and got the
money. It is believed thut Denton
either deposited the money while in
toxicated or that some friends seeing
his condition, took the money from him
and deposited it In the bank.

Robinson Heirs File Suit At Dan

Danville, Ky , Jan. 25. Jacob and
James Robinson, wealthy farmers oi
this county, with other heirs of the
late James Robinson, whose death oc
curred at an advanced age at Hubble
some weeks ago, have (lied suit in the
Lincoln Circuit Court against tho
Equitable Insurance Society, of New
York, for f 2 10,000.
The deceased took out a 10,000 poli
cy with tho Equitable in I8O9, when
the society was in its infancy. The
policy was of the mutual plan, and the
suit seeks to have the Robinson heirs
participate in $71,000,000 of unassigned
surplus funds which have accumulated
to the Equitable since the policy was
The question raised by the suit is an
entirely new one, which has never
been passed upon by any court in tho
United States. Attorney Joseph Rob
inson, of Lancaster, who is-one of the
heirs, brought the suit, and will be as
sisted by former Justice Edward C.
O'Rear, of Frankfort. If the case is
won a question will be opened to which
probably would result In similar suits
being filed In all parts of the country.
The heirs contend that their pro rata
of the surplus for the period covered is
the sum named.

In Owensboro Last Week Were
the Heaviest of the Season
Deliveries Postponed Until
The deliveries of tobacco In Owens
boro last week were the heaviest of any
week since the delivery season opened.
In addition to the rush by the poolers
of the Green River Association there
was a large amount delivered by the
Equity and Home Warehouse poolers.
They will rot be so heavy the pres
ent week, because the Equity 'and
Home Warehouse deliveries have been
called off until February 10, owing to
the fact that the pool with these asso
ciations in the other counties of the
district has not yet been placed. It is
thought that a deal will be closed in
time for deliveries to begin again on the
date namsd, but if not it is probable
that there will be another postpone
ment, as the poolers iu the other coun
ties are complaining of the deliveries
by the Dayless county poolers alleging
that they are virtually "dumpers" on
on the other counties.
The graders at different factories
where tobacco is being rece'ved are
having much less trouble than when the
aeason first opened, and everything
seems to be working along smoothly.
One Good Road in Breckenridge
J. T. F, Oweu, of Glen Deau, was
here last week delivering tobacco. He
delivered five wagonloads and said the
road from his place to Cloverport was
actually good. It is not often that the
roads in Breckenridge county are ever
accused of being good.
