Pulaski County and Her Problems. The problems that confront Pulaski County
people have never seemed so large as they do today. But that is because most
of us are getting acquainted with them. This county is old in years, but its
appearance indicates that it is only a beginner. The old settlers built
poorly indeed. They seemed to be absolutely devoid of progress. Every man
worked for himself and made but little headway at that. The richest men we
had, even twenty-five years ago, thought themselves extremely liberal in
giving a dollar a month to their church, and such a thing a combining their
capital with that of some one else in some business enterprise was never
thought of. Because of bad roads, our farmers were backward and extremely
poor. Their families grew up without business capacity or ambition. Our
schools were so poor that they were only "kept." But things are changing. A
new era is dawning. There is much to be done if we would develop as we
should. Schools should be consolidated and more efficient and better paid
teachers obtained. The children must be educated. The parent that does not
take a deep interest in sending the children to school does not perform his
duty and is a poor citizen. The parents, teachers and all school officials
of Pulaski need wake up in the great cause of education. We must have more
good roads because they are so necessary to everybody. The people of this
county have been indifferent to our highways long enough. They should arouse
themselves, for bad roads have kept our people in ignorance and poverty for
more than a century. With better schools and roads will come larger business
and all together will produce better citizens and a richer community. As
individuals we have a duty to perform. We cannot excuse ourselves. Shame on
the man or woman who says, "Let George do it." It is a poor citizen who
withholds his best efforts to advance his town and county. We must all
learn, if we do not know the law of service. Our petty prejudices must be
overcome. The hatred for some neighbor must not interfere with the progress
of our community. If we would give vital and lasting help, we must lose
sight of ourselves and think of others, remembering that man's highest office
is service. By service we can win the respect and admiration of others. It
is in service for others that we make character and in the final analysis, it
is upon the individual character of you and me that this big world must
depend. Pulaski is our citizens in mass, and the mass is what the individual
makes. So as big as the road problem is; as stupendous as the question, or
as important as the cause of united our brains, school energies and capital
in-business enterprises, it all resolves itself into you and me. The future
is ours, the way is plain. With love born of character and with a
determination to contribute to the advancement of our country, we can make
her stand out as a shining example to our neighboring counties. We can place
her where we can look upon her achievements with pride. But it is up to you.
Mr. Citizen of Pulaski! Have you the desire to see your children prosperous
and happy? Do you want better homes with the latest improvements therein?
Are you concerned in more intelligent farming? Does the cause of bigger
business appeal to you? If so, let us shake off this feeling of
indifference; fill our hearts with love; crowd our minds with thoughts of
better things and with a determination to have them, let us all meet, plan
and work together, that a glorious result might be had.
Price. Miss Mary A. Price, daughter of the late William Owens and Barthenia
C. Price, was born Sept. 17, 1846. She professed saving faith in Christ in
young womanhood and united with the Pitman Creek Baptist church and was a
devout member until she was called to join the church triumphant, which was
10:30 p.m., Tuesday, February 10, 1920. Aunt Mollie as she was generally
known, was never married, but chose rather the quiet home life. As proof of
her gentle, sweet nature, she was all a mother could be to her devoted orphan
niece, Miss Eva Taylor, who yet resides with another Aunt, Miss Viletha
Price, at the old home. She is survived by two sisters, Miss Viletha Price,
of this county, and Mrs. Ellen Metcalfe, of Wayne county, a number of nieces
and nephews and a host of tried and true friends. The funeral was conducted
at the family home Friday, February 13, 1920, 10 a.m., by Rev. W.E. Hunter,
assisted by her pastor, Rev. Wesley Colyer. Immediately after the funeral
services the casket with its precious burden was borne from the home by the
following named pall bearers: Earl Leece, Robert Gover, Lovell Gover,
Maurice Woods, Tom Cundiff, and Will Jones. Internment took place in the
city cemetery. Aunt Mollie in her quiet home life was one of the most
beautiful characters we have ever known. She was a living example, a living
epistle, known and read by all who knew her. As one said when seeing her in
the casket, "so pretty, so pretty!" She was always so pretty, while she was
a pretty woman, she often reminded us of a rose, her favorite flower, the
fragrance is more beautiful than the flower, her life her influence was more
beautiful than herself and will carry a great reward to her many years hence.
As was said of the Mary who anointed the Master's feet, "She hath done what
Two miracle cases of Divine healing wrought by the power of God in this city:
Mr. Will Solimon, a well known man of this city, a railroad track foreman of
Ferguson, slipped on a piece of ice Sunday morning and broke his arm below
the elbow; he called the elders of the church, they prayed for him and
anointed him with oil, and he was healed wonderfully. Look in James 5th
chapter, 13-16 verses for this. Also, there is Mr. Jack Hardwick, another
citizen of this city, who was taken with appendicitis, our best doctors of
this city said he would have to be operated on. After some few days he
called for the elders of the church and prayed for him; he was instantly
healed and went to his work at the Ferguson shops the next morning. Read the
last chapter of Mark and about the 28-30 verses. Advertisement.

Henry Ford Passed Thru Somerset Last Week For Stearns Where He Went On
Business. Henry Ford, millionaire auto mobile manufacturer of Detroit,
Michigan, passed thru Somerset last Friday en route to McCreary county on a
business trip. He spent some time at Bauer and Stearns. Mr. Ford is on a
deal for some coal and timber lands in McCreary and he was looking over the
property. He had five of his experts with him. It is said that the Bauer
people have interested him in their property and it is likely that he will
purchase it. Mr. L.B. Lowenthal had a long talk with Mr. Ford at Stearns and
he told him that he was very favorably impressed with this section of the sta
te and he saw great possibilities ahead for her citizens. Mr. Ford said that
the one thing necessary to progress was lacking, however, and that was good
Keene - Levy. The following article which appeared in a Louisville paper
last Sunday will be read with interest here: "Owensboro, Ky., Feb. 12 - Dr.
Robert Perkins Keene, who is dangerously ill of appendicitis, was married to
Mrs. Esther Kummer Levy at the home of the bride, "Twin Gables," at 8 o'clock
this evening. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. C.C. Gregory, pastor of
Settle Memorial church. Only the immediate families and a few intimate
friends attended. The wedding had been arranged for a later date, but when
Dr. Keene was stricken at the home of his bride a few days ago, it was
decided to hold the wedding tonight. Dr. Keene came to Owensboro several
years ago from Cynthiana, Ky. He is very wealthy. His bride is the young
widow of Rabbi Theodore Levy, who died at Camp Sherman, Ohio, last year while
in service of the American Red Cross. He left his widow a handsome estate."
Dr. Keene is the son of Major A.T. Keene of this city, and is well known here
where he spent most of his boyhood days. Friends hope for his early recovery
from the spell of appendicitis. He just recently visited his father.
Fiscal Court In Special Session At Call Of Judge. Road Matters Receive
Attention. The Pulaski County Fiscal Court met in special session last
Tuesday. All the magistrates were present. Quite a number of sheep claims
were allowed. Squire S.C. Hail, County Attorney Waddle and Judge Tartar were
appointed a committee to check up the report of the County Treasurer. The
court adopted the plan of 1919 for working the dirt roads of the county and
ordered the County Judge to mail out all road orders by the 15th of March.
Arrangements were made to have the roofs of the Courthouse and Jail painted.
A resolution was adopted thanking Mr. J.M. Richardson for his faithful and
painstaking service to the county as Treasurer. It was ordered that State
Road Commissioner be directed to have that portion of the Somerset and London
inter-county seat road between Buck Creek, at Dykes P.O. to Rockcastle River
