Dillman, Alex Glaspy and others, has been painted, a good strong hitch-rack built, a grove set out, the graveyard fence rebuilt and grass all trimmed until it has a very beauiful appearance. You can tell the sincereness of the religion of a church by its appearance. Every church ought to be everybody's home and the feeling when there like all were of one family. There are lots of churches but there isn't half enough religion in a great many of them. The church where its members pull against each other, in and out of the church, never attracts much attention in this world or the hereafter. Chas. Cline has moved from Mrs. Wooden's property to the Grimes addition. HARRODSBURG TO DECORATE. Sunday June 13th is to be a great day at Harrodsburg. The K. of P's., Odd Fellows, Modern Woodmen and Old Soldiers will have appropriate decoration exercises in honor of thier silent loved ones. At 12.30 a procession is to be formed and all march to the Hall grove about 1/2 mile west of Harrodsburg, where there will be prominent speakers to entertain the crowd. Music will be furnished by the Harrodsburg orchestra and Smithville Cornet Band. ATTENTION OF DR. HURTY NEEDED A little attention of Dr. Hurty could be used to a better advantage down about Clear Creek than worrying so much over the hitch-rack. Many of the farmers living along down the creek below Bloomington are getting their feathers ruffled up over the foul stuff that comes down ''Spankers branch'' out of Bloomington. Fish cannot live in it and when any comes up from the waters below; when they get up-above Clear Creek the foul water, kills them. The farmers also say the water is unfit for their stock to drink and unless the new sewerage system clears up the water and purifies it fa little, they are talking damage suits. MONON ROUTE is the best route to Chicago, LaFayette, Indianapolis and Louisville and all points North and Northwest. Solid Vestibule Trains, Dining Cars, on through day trains and Pullman Sleepers on all night train.
