IN JAIL
Charged With Killing Gilbert

A large crowd gathered at the
County Court room last Monday,

near Casky, some time since, came
up for trial. Unexpectedly Thomas

jury against night riding, when Hall
entered the court room to bo ar
raigned. Hall, in an interview, ex
pressed his intention to plead "guil
ty" to posting a night rider notice
on Mr. Spencer's house. He was in
great terror, His bail was fixed at
only $200, but no one appeared to
sign his bond, and he was confined
in the county jail at Dixon. It is
hoped that Hall will give informa
tion which will assist the officers in
securing o.thcr night riders.
ENTHUSIASM
Was Manifested at Business
'Men's Meeting Thursday
Night.
There were many speakers at the
meeting of the H. B. M. A. last Mon
day night and the talks along differ
ent lines were very interesting and
enthusiastic.
Mr. J. F. Bible said that where
there was a live business me'ns as
sociation much could be accomplish
ed that could not be done by others,
no matter how interested men might
be in anything looking to the wel
fare of the city. By united efforts
almost anvthing can be done..
Judge W. T. Fowler, who ia fa
miliar with what has been done by
agriculturalist Morgan, commended
him in most positive terms and made
the assertion that Mr. Morgan has
already saved the county a hundred
times what it has cost to have such
a man in our midst.
Mr. Morgan gave a most interest
ing talk, dwelling more particularly
on the northern part of the county.
He thinks that section is a. garden
spot and the proper cultivation of
the farms wi'l show that it is rich in
agricultural resources.
There were a number of other
speakers, nmong them President
Cooper Hon. Frank Rives and A. H.
Eckles. These gentlemen all know
the possibilities of the Association
for future work and spoke in glow
ing terms of what has already been
done.

HIGH TEMPERATURES
Are So Common That People
Don't Mind Them.
Though we have had 100 degree
temperature this week there has
been but little complaint. Tuesday

mark but a strong breeze during the
day made the heat bearable July
has made a good start to put it over
June. Three times out of seven days
the temperature registered 100. Mr.
Randle reports that the minimum
Tuesday night was 69. With cool
nights the people can stand the tor
rid weather during the day, when
the humidity is not too great Old
