A Democratic Paper Published Every Friday

Somerset, Ky., Friday, December 26, 1919.


The rapidly expiring year has brought rich reward to all kind of mental and
physical labor.  Pulaski has many good and prosperous citizens.  We are proud
of the advancement made throughout the county.  But the new year should bring
a resolve for more activity among our people.  There is much room for
improvement.  We must have better roads and more scientific farming.  Every
human being should be keenly interested in these most important matters and
work most earnestly to bring both to old Pulaski.  Somerset could do most
anything it once made up its mind to do.  The great thing is to arouse the
necessary interest, to get the citizens united and moving.  When this is
done, we can and will have a city that our people can point to with greater
pride.  Men of Somerset, let's stop our bickerings, get bigger hearted,
determine to be of greater service to others. Let us all unite in a laudible
effort to improve, enlarge and beautify good old Somerset.  Let us make her
the best and most wide-awake town in this great and growing Commonwealth. 
Wake up, boys, one and all, and let us begin, because much needs to be done. 
Fortunately we have men and women who are capable of carrying the work to a
successful termination.

Here is wishing that Santy will generously remember each and all our readers.
 May your hearts be chuck full of joy, your words brimming over with good
cheer and with a firm determination to do more and greater things for the
community in which you live, let us meet and greet the year 1920.
