It seemed as if half the inhabitants
of Cloverport attended the ice cream
supper given Friday evening on Mr.

At any rate, the proprioter knew

vided plenty of ice cream, and bar
becued mutton altho there was not
enough of the latter, and soft drinks
which helped quench the thirst of
those who entered into the square
Mr. Dejamette has given other
picnics and barbecues so he is not

VIC PILE, Harned, Ky.
Youngsters Fill Up
Big Cut In Sidewalk.
The inhabitants of the entire
itv are greatly indebted to Mas-
ters John McGavock and Billy
Phelps, sons of Mr. and Mrs L.
McGavock and Mr. and Mrs.
David Phelps, for their work in
rilling up a deep cut in the side
walk approaching the East end of
of the bridge.
The heavy rains washed this
cut in the dirt walk, so Masters
McGavock and Phelps, who were
fired with an abundance of civic
pride, filled their wagons with
cinders and hauled enough to fill
the entire cut, and on an extremly
hot day at that when most little
boys would rather be playing
than working. These youngsters
are to be very highly commended.

TO LAND OWNERS
Along Public Highways To
Clean Out Fence Corners
i The last Legislature of Kentucky
, passed a law requiring all land own
I ers along the public highways to cut
out their fence corners each year.
I Under this law. folks failing to cut
! out their fence corners are subject to
a tine and it is a pretty heavy fine too.
The object of the law is to keep the
I shade out of the roads. Many roads
I are kept damp and muddy by reason
; of the sun failing to shine in the road.
which is due to bushes and trees in
the fence corners. This is a good law.
because every man should have pride
enough about him to clean out his
fence corners along the public high
way, without having to be forced to
do it. but if he does not have this
pride we will not as a matter of
i choice, but as a matter of duty, force
i him to have that pride by bringing
j him into court and giving him a fine.
Law is law, we are going to enforce
it because we are bound to do it. We
have no desire to cause any man one
bit of trouble about this matter, but
we are going to do our duty as best
we can. Therefore, take advantage of
the opportunity that is before you.
