The Somerset Journal
The Oldest Democratic Newspaper in the Mountains of Kentucky
Feese & Williams
Somerset, Ky., Friday, February 27, 1920.
Pulaski county has many intelligent, progressive and industrious women. The
war has taught them the importance of hearty cooperation. They have gone
through a season of real service and proved themselves of great value.
During the war the good women Red Crossed, sold Liberty Bonds, drove
ambulances, raised money and became experts in community work. Now the
bloody war with Germany is over but the work of woman has only begun. She is
just starting her war upon evil and beginning her battle against ignorance.
Her fight for civic improvements, for better and more convenient homes will
be waged with vim. Her influence for the general betterment of the community
will be more fully realized and more thoroughly appreciated as time goes on.
The women of Pulaski have much to live and work for. There are many things
that greatly need their close and constant attention. The Journal would like
to see our women get enthusiastically behind some great public improvement
and work earnestly and unitedly for its completion. This paper would gladly
take notice of such work and would seek to encourage it in every way
possible. So, ladies, get busy, and here is good luck to you all, and the
busier you get, the more luck we wish you.
Didn't Know Had War. There is one man in Pulaski county who did not know
until this week that the United States had been in war. He came to the
recruiting office and said that he had heard something about some fighting
going on and wanted to know what it was about. He first learned the United
States had been in a war when his boy said that he wanted to write an essay
on "The Benefits of an Enlistment in the Army."
Ben Vanhook Is Killed By a Shed Falling On Him. A sad accident happened in
the northern part of the county this week when a large shed fell and caught
Mr. Ben Vanhook under it and killed him almost instantly. Mr. Vanhook lived
near Ocala and was one of the most prominent farmers in the county. His son,
Marcum Vanhook, who lives at Layfayette, Ind., was notified and arrived in
time for the funeral.
Ham - Cottonbrook. Miss Anna Mae Ham, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.P. Ham, of
this city, and Mr. Earl Cottonbrook of Cincinnati, Ohio, were married last
Saturday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock at the home of the bride's parents on
College street. The ceremony was performed by Rev. W.E. Hunter and
immediately following Mr. and Mrs. Cottonbrook left for Cincinnati where they
will reside. The wedding was rather a quiet affair only a few friends and
relatives being present. Mrs. Cottonbrook is a graduate of the Somerset High
School and a social favorite with the younger set. Mr. Cottonbrook formerly
lived at Somerset but is now employed in Cincinnati. He is a very popular
young man and has many friends in Somerset.
In Bad Condition. The streets of Somerset are in the worse condition than
they have been in for some time and unless something is done they will soon
be impassible. Something must be done. Nearly every street in the city
needs repairing and it will take thousands of dollars. The city hasn't the
money. A bond issue at once. Somerset needs $1,00,000.00 for improvements.
Buy out Gossett. The Somerset Coal & Feed Company has purchased the coal
and transfer business of L.W. Gossett. They took charge last Wednesday
morning. This gives the Somerset Coal and Feed Co. practically a clear track
in the coal and transfer business. Mr. Gossett has not fully decided just
what he will do but says that he will remain in Somerset.
Sale March 9th. D.A. and J.C. Wilson, administrators of the estate of W.F.
Wilson, deceased, Ingle, Ky., will sell at public auction on Tuesday, March
9th, all the personal property of the late W.F. Wilson. The sale will be
held on the premises at the late residence of the deceased.
Visiting Danville. Mr. Samuel Brinton, of Somerset, was in the city today on
business. He has been connected with the C.N.O. & T.P. Railway at that place
for several years past. Mr. and Ms. Brinton formerly resided at Parksville,
this county, where they have many relatives and friends. - Danville
Marriage License. The following marriage licenses have been issued since our
last issue: Oscar E. McKinney and Nettie M. Grear, Nathon Price and Lena
Dalton, William M. Ware and Stella Mae Gossett, Earl N. Cottonbrook and Anna
Mae Ham, Osborne Tucker and Myrtle A. Phelps, Elevi Ashbrook and Viona Young,
Alonzo Whitaker and Beatrice Woodall, J.P. Jones and Lula A. Jones.
Coal Shortage. Mr. C.I. Ross, manager of the Somerset Coal & Feed Co., says
that the coal situation in Somerset is getting serious again. There are many
families out of coal and there is very little in the coal yards. Mr. Ross is
making every effort to get a supply to take care of the people of Somerset.
Who Can Beat This? Mr. A.H. Wilson of Nancy, was in the Journal office last
week and told us that he had a butter record hard to beat. From three cows
in one years time, Mr. Wilson manufactured 865 pounds of butter for sale.
This brought him $472.10. This does not including the butter that Mr.
Wilson's family used. Each cow raised a calf during the year too. Pretty
good record we say. Mr. Wilson is a progressive farmer.
Circuit Court News. Circuit Court is grinding along and getting rid of many
cases. Marshall Woodall was sent to the penitentiary for eight years. He
was convicted in four cases. Tom Richardson and Jarvis Barnes were given one
year each for house breaking. Walter Guin got one year for grand larceny and
Arthur Tucker one year for stealing. The grand jury is still in session and
many witnesses appear before them every day. There have been no whiskey
cases tried this court. In fact, there is none on the docket.
Hoboes Burn Flat Car And Fine Autos. Three negro lads, hoboes on a flat car
which was side tracked just south of Somerset near U.S. Junction, set fire to
the flat car Monday afternoon when they attempted to start a fire from some
waste. The car was loaded with three new Super-Six Hudson cars in transit.
The flat car and the three autos went up in smoke before aid could reach the
scene. Chief detective Sam Morrow apprehended the intruders and lodged them
behind the bars with Jailer Hansford. One of the party of "tourists" had in
his possession a 38 caliber revolver loaded with five 32 caliber cartridges
wrapped with wire so as to fit the 38 pistol. He was relieved of the weapon
and in addition to the charge placed against the three, a charge of carrying
concealed a deadly weapon was registered against this particular one of the
Oil Well Comes In, 40 Barrel Producer. Gene Hogue, who is drilling on the
Silas Burnette leave near Little Pilot, had exceedingly good luck on last
Wednesday, when he hit oil and now has a well that is producing about forty
barrels a day and looks like a steady worker. The well is located about two
miles from the Parmleysville field, and Capt. Slingerlend, who is drilling
for the Taylor Oil Company, expects to hit the same pool with the well at
which he is now working about 1,000 feet from the Hogue hole. The Taylor
well is down about 400 feet, but as the sand was not reached in the Hogue
well until 857 feet, and the oil at 890, it would look as though Capt.
Slingerlend has a couple of weeks yet to work. - McCreary County Record.
Frank Gover Dies at Greensboro, N.C., Relatives From Somerset at Bed-Side.
The Greensboro, N.C., Record had the following article about Mr. Frank Gover,
a former Pulaskian: "Frank Gover, an esteemed citizen and prominent
businessman of this city, died this morning at 7:30 o'clock at St. Leo's
hospital. Last Friday night he underwent an operation for appendicitis and
since then complications set in which caused his death. Mr. Gover was 54
years old, was born and reared at Somerset, Ky., coming to this city five
years ago. He accepted a position with the George C. Brown Cedar Company and
at the time of his death was manager for that company. Mr. Gover and his
family made their home at 213 South Mendenhall Street. He was noted for his
kindness and interest in the welfare of other people, and his death is a
distinct loss to the neighborhood in which he made his home. He is survived
by his wife and daughter, Miss Mabel Gover. Relatives from a distance with
him at the time of his death were Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Sloan, of Burnside, Ky.,
the latter a sister of Mr. Gover; Mrs. L.M. Cheely of Burnside, and Mrs.
Frank Ellis of Somerset, both sisters of the deceased; Mrs. George Wortham of
Louisville, Ky., sister of Mrs. Gover. The body will be taken to Kentucky
probably on Saturday. A short funeral service will be held at the home on
South Mendenhall street, announcement of which will be made later."
A Sad Death. Phillips. Miss Ella Olive Phillips, daughter of Mrs. Mary
Phillips, who made Somerset her home up until about four months ago, when she
went to London to accept a position as instructor in music at the Sue Bennett
Memorial School, died last Sunday morning at London with the "flu." Mrs.
W.E. Hunter went to London and accompanied the remains to this city Monday
night. Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon, at the First
Baptist church, by Rev. Hunter assisted by Rev. Kirby Smith of Georgetown.
Burial followed in the city cemetery. Miss Phillips and her mother came to
Somerset about one year ago from their home in New Zealand. They came direct
to Somerset and were guests of Dr. and Mrs. W.E. Hunter for some time. Miss
Phillips was born March 17th, 1896 at Walehallah, Victoria, Australia. When
sixteen years of age, she was converted and had lived a Christian life ever
since. She was bethrothed to Rev. Leslie J.B. Smith of Columbia, Ky., and
they were to have been married in May. Rev. Smith attended the funeral.
Mrs. Phillips is ill with "flu" and was unable to be present. She will
return to her home in Australia as soon as she is able.
Congratulates Somerset. In a package of goods received from Marshall Field
Co., Chicago, last week Dr. H.K. Fulkerson, the jeweler and optician, found
the following letter: "Congratulation to the town of Somerset for being the
home of Captain J.J. Bethurum, Adjutant of the 64th Infantry. Captain
Bethurum is a man in every sense of the word." Signed a Soldier Who Was
Fortunate Enough To Serve Under Him."
