Was Here.  Assistant State Inspector T. Morrow, Jr., was in Somerset Saturday.  Mr. Morrow is in Danville this week examining the books of county officials there.

Fiscal Court.  The Pulaski County Fiscal Court was in session last week for three days.  All members were present.  Sheriff Weddle filed a list of delinquent tax payers.  Judge Tartar and Magistrate Tartar were appointed a committee to go over the list and arrange for the sale.  The jailer was allowed $600.00 for taking care of the Courthouse for 1921.  Judge Tartar and Magistrate Hail were appointed a committee to check over the account of the Treasurer for 1920.

Interesting Paper.  Mr. Elijah Logan today presented the Advocate with a copy
of the Kentucky People, a local newspaper which was published at Perryville 21 years ago.  It was edited by Woodson May, now a resident of Somerset.  The paper contains much news which is very interesting. Danville Advocate.

Still Unidentified.  The corpse at the morgue of the Somerset Undertaking Company is still unidentified.  Many pictures have been received of missingmen from over the country but none resemble the man here.  It has been over a week now since he was brought to the undertaking establishment.

Auto Licenses Issued By The County Clerk Run Over Three Hundred.  Some Out.  There are still quite a few auto owners who have not paid their 1921 license to County Clerk Langdon.  All auto licenses were due January 1, but Governor Morrow extended the time ten days which made Monday the last day to drive your machine on a 1920 tag.  Up to Monday, Mr. Langdon had issued 314 passenger licenses, 51 truck licenses, 56 chauffeur licenses, six dealer's licenses and four for motorcycles.  There is no question but what there are
more automobiles in Pulaski County than the above number.  Evidently many car owners are going to let their car stay in the garage.  A majority of the licenses issued were for Ford cars

The death angel with its silent tread entered the home of Mr. James Vaught on
January 4, 1921, and took away his loving wife, Cora.  She was 21 years of
