Judge Wilson is a very busy man this term of court, so many divorce murder and blind-tiger cases. The opening of a blind-tiger case in court, does not mean that the case contains 48 pints.

When a bank cashier gets sick the doctors don't feel so blue, Eleven new members were added to the W C T U Sunday night on account of the strong address given by Mrs. Kroft, at the Christian church.

All doctors and all doctor books preach to you that it is an irritant to the stomach, and will not reccommend it at all. Look on the inside this week. EASTER SUNDAY Is only nine days away and you are no doubt planning for the pretty Hat and Suit you will want for that day. You should make your Easter selections as early as possible to avoid the rush of the last days These Easter Opening Days we bid you welcome to this gatherning of the styles which will reign throughout the Spring and Summer of 1909.

Walter Hepley has bought of Grant Hazel, an organ, for his little daughters, Olive and Anna. Why not let the jury sample the "exhibits'' in the blind-tiger cases? That would create more interest with the jury. Sam Burris, west of town, has bought a fine new Kimball piano of Grant Hazel. By the fault of the reporter one of the names of those who went to Harrodsburg to the big reception which was to be given by the K. of P. lodge, was left out of last weeks issue. We regret it very much but will give his name this week. Homer Utterback, our genial barber, was there and suffered very much with the cold and rain. When he returned he found his hands were cold and stiff that it was impossible to assist in caring for the team, so he was advised by our eminent physician, Dr. Kentling, to run along home and have his wife apply a few hot towels,this we are proud to say, gave immediate relief. After a repremand from his wife he has sworn never again to take such a ride without her full consent. One Who Was In The Hay-mow. Do you get the News?
