Soldiers From Famous First Division Are in the City on a Recruiting Trip.  The First Division was the first to reach France, the first to engage in battle and the last to return to America.  This week Pulaski county has the honor of entertaining a detachment of these boys who are here on a recruiting trip.  First Lieutenant Kluss is in charge of the boys and they are as fine a looking body of men as you will see anywhere.  A nation wide drive is on now for the regular army - the peace time army.  Opportunities are offered to all men between the ages of 18 and 55 to get both an education and learn a trade.

 It is not all drill and work in the army now.  It is school and recreation.  This special party now in Somerset have a quantity of captured German war material, consisting of machine guns, rifles, artillery fire control instruments and signal equipment.  The party consists of eleven expert men in demonstrating this equipment which is located on the Public Square.  The party leaves here Sunday for Jackson.  The purpose of this party is not only to get recruits but to make the people understand the peace time program of the army.  Most parents see the army only as a fighting machine.  This army in peace times is an institution of learning.  It is a place where every man can get an education from the boy who can not read and write to the college
graduate.  In addition to this, the lowest pay is $30.00 running up to $121.00.  Everything in the way of board, room and clothing furnished.  The 81st Field Artillery Band, of Camp Knox, will arrive Friday to give free concert in connection with some war pictures to be shown at the Christian church tonight and the High School Saturday night.  The band consists of twenty-six pieces.  The pictures were taken by our own Signal Corps and show the 1st Division in training and as the army of occupation in Germany.  First Lieut. J.J. Moody of the 16th Infantry, 1st Division, in addition to the other party is also here with five men.

Makes Team.  News has been received here that John Cooper, who is attending school at Yale, has made the Yale basketball team and is playing in all the big games.  This is quite an honor for John and also for Somerset.

Five Killed and Fifteen Wounded When Mob Makes Attempt To Get Negro Murderer.
  Lexington, Ky., Feb. 9 - Five persons were killed and fifteen injured here today when a mob intend upon lynching William Lockett, a negro, who confessed
to the murder of 10-year old Geneva Hardman, charged the courthouse during Lockett's trial and was fired upon by police and State troops.  Included among the wounded were two women.  The crwd, intent upon lynching the negro, was repulsed when the soldiers fired a volley.  The ring leaders, carrying a rope, were forced to withdraw.  While the excitement was going on in front of the courthouse a jury in the courtroom convicted Lockett of first degree murder and the negro was sentenced to be electrocuted March 11.  The trial lasted only a minute.

Gragg.   Word has been received here of the death of Charlie Gragg, formerly of this city, at St. Louis, Missouri.  He died Friday morning, February 6, of pneumonia following influenza.  He was the son of the late H.H. Gragg and was 42 years of age.  He is survived by a wife, who was formerly Miss Dean McQuarry, of this county, and three children, besides three sisters, Misses Ida, Mary, and Viola Gragg of this city.

Former Pulaskian Pays Journal a High Compliment.  To the Editors of The Journal:  I was a resident of Pulaski county for thirty-four years, and
thirty years of that time I resided at Science Hill.  I am seventy-six years of age and am enjoying good health.  In 1918, I moved to Ludlow and am living
with my son, who has a good position with the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Co. 
I take your paper and have noticed for some time the very great improvement n the news.  In all these thirty-five years it is the best paper I have seen
published in Somerset.  I not only read the great amount of news, but even enjoy reading the "ads" in The Journal.  I feel like the businessmen of Pulaski county should stand by you, for you are publishing a paper that reflects great credit on the old county of Pulaski.  I see from your paper
that Joe Gibson has been chosen as one of the men to help manage the Democratic party.  This was a wise selection.  I hope the correspondent at
Science Hill will continue to write and furnish all the news to your paper, so that I may keep posted on what my old friends are doing where I lived so long.  I see that nearly everybody is getting on the Governor's staff as colonel except my good old friend, C.M. Langdon, our County Court Clerk, but
I am expected to hear of his appointment at any time, for he is a most deserving fellow.  Very truly yours, T.F. Vallandingham.

Simpson, died in Tremont, Ill., January 22nd, after a year's illness.  The following is reproduced from The Tremont (Ill.) News of January 30th, which
contained a very extensive account of the death of this good woman:  "This community was pained and shocked Thursday noon of last week when it became
known that Mrs. Greely, wife of B.L. Greely, had passed away.  She had been ill for the past year, and while she had failed some a few days before her
death, her family and friends did not realize that the end was so near, and her death came as a great shock to all.  The deceased had lived in this vicinity since 1881 and enjoyed a wide acquaintance.

President Poincare.  The Inscription.  Near the top of the engraving appear two lines from Victor Hugo, which, translated, reads:  "Those who died
piously for their county Have the right that at their graves the people come to pray."  The words below the open space, which will bear the soldiers name
in English, are: "To the memory of _____, of the United States of America, who died for liberty during the Great War, the homage of France."


  She was a woman possessed of a beautiful character and to know her was to love her.  She united with the Methodist Episcopal church in early life and had remained
faithful and consistent member all these years.  She was ever willing and ready to assist those in need, and as long as she was able to get away from
her home, her one though was, where can I help someone who needs my assistance?  In her death, the husband has lost a loving wife and a true
companion, the children a kind and indulgent mother, and the community a true friend.  The family and relatives have the heartfelt sympathy of all in their bereavement.  Mary Elizabeth Simpson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.D. Simpson, was born near Somerset, Ky., June 2, 1871, and departed this life at her home in Tremont, Jan. 22, 1920, aged 48 years, 7 months and 20 days.  She came to Illinois with her parents in 1881.  On March 3, 1892, she was united in marriage to B.L. Greely of Elm Grove township, and to this union three children were born, two sons and one daughter - George, who recently went to California, and Edward and Glenna at home.  She also leaves her aged mother,
Mrs. W.D. Simpson, of this place, and five brothers - F.M. Simpson, of Chicago; E.A. of Lake City, Iowa; William, Charles and John of Groveland; two
sisters - Miss Ida, of Tremont, and Mrs. Ina Naffzinger of Elm Grove.  All the brothers and sisters were present at the funeral services.  It was one of the largest attended funerals ever held in the church, only about one half of those in attendance being able to get inside.  The Eastern Stars, of which the deceased was a member, attended in a body.  The K of L Club, of which the son, George Greely, is president, attended out of respect and to represent him in his absence."
