There Is a-Great Deal of Work
To Be Done In a
Short Time.
It has been many years since Hop
kinsville hod a home coming and it
would certainly be a good thing for
the Pennyroyal Fair Company to
take under consideration the matter
of having a "Home Coming" during
the entire time of their first fair
this year. We see from the papers
that at Stanford, .Lincoln county,
the Knights of Pythias are to have
a homecoming feature during the
fair next fall.
We look upon this as being worthy
of consideration - by the company,
for it certainly would be a feature
that would bring hundreds of peop'e
here from all over our country, pro
vided the company could arrange
for reduced railroad rates, and that
would be easy.
Since the fair now seems to be an
assured thing, and in view of the
great amount of work to be done in
only a few months, a beginning can
not bestarted too soon. To get
ready for the fall fajr involves more
work and management than can be
studied out in a short time. There
is nothing whatever to start with.
Enclosing the grounds, construction
af an amphitheatre and stalls for
horses and other animals, putting in
a railroad side track and many other
things that cannot be thought of un
til operations are fairly under way.
will demand strenuous work on the
part of those who will be mimed by
the company to get ready for the
first, fair.
It seems to be in the mind of those
who have .been most active in per
fecting the organization of the fair
company that-a resumption of our
old-time county fairs will be a great
success from the very start. Those
who might have appeared indiffer
ent when called upon to take stock
in the corporation will soon catch
inspiration from those who are work
ing for and investing their money
in an undertaking to push Christian
county to (he front as an agricultur
al section of the State and will be
among the first to put the products
of their farmers on exhibition where
they will h,e seen by tens of thou
sands of people.

At The Age of 68 Years, Last
Wednesday After- ,
Remains Were Taken To Jar-
lisle For Interment;
The death of Daniel T. Morris,
which occurred Wednesday after
noon, was not unexpected. He was
brought here several days ago and
placed in the Sanitarium for treat
ment. The physicians at once pro
nounced him beyond medical aid and
after two or three days in the Sani
tarium he was taken to the home of
his son. He was a victim of kidney
affection, which had made such in
roads on hia general health that he
was brought here from Carlisle, Ky.,
with the hope that something might
be done for him.
He was in the 68th year of his age
and at one time was a citizen of
Hopkinsville and held the office of
book-keeper for the former Consum
ers Ice Company. He was-a man of
strict integrity and a devoted mem
ber of the Christian Church. Of
late years he spent his time visiting
his children, his wife having died
several years ago. He was also a
Mason. The remains were taken to
Carlisle for interment yesterday.
At his request he was laid to rest in
his Confederate uniform, he having
been cne of Morgan's command dur
in the civil war.
HeJs survived by four children,
John and James R. Morri3, of this
city; Mrs. Jared Boyd, of Nashville,
and Mrs. Nannie Boyd.

representatives with reference to
complaints of increased rates alleg
ed to haye been put into effect by
the Christian Todd Telephone Com
pany, a merger of several independ
ent lines, the State Railroad Com
mission took the question under ad
visement this afternoon and did not
issue the anticipated order citing
the consolidated company to show
cause why it should not be dissolved.
The company was represented by
R. E. Cooper, of Hopkinsville. He
said whatever complaint at the eer
vice may be justifiable, is explained
by the fact that the company i3

making changes and improvements,
and that rates have not been increas
ed over those in force by any of the
merged companies. He said rates
are being adjusted, however. In
some instance reductions had been
