Get Ready, Judge! The citizens of Somerset and Pulaski county want to see
the Stanford pike completed in the early Spring. It is hoped that the
authorities will make all preparation to begin work just as soon as the
weather will permit as this piece of pike can be completed by July, at the
latest. This should be a great road building year in the county.
James Neal. James Neal, formerly of Somerset, died Monday at Flint,
Michigan, after a short illness with the influenza. The body was shipped to
this city for burial. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Talbot in the
parlors of the Somerset Undertaking Co., Thursday morning at ten o'clock.
Internment followed in the City Cemetery. James Neal was the son of Judge
J.F. Neal of Bell county, and Mollie Neal Parks of Somerset, both deceased.
For the past several years he has been in Flint, Michigan, where he had a
splendid position with an automobile concern and was doing well. He is
survived by three sisters and one brother - Mrs. Chas. Mayhall, Misses Mary
Neal and Florida Lou Parks and Houston C. Neal all of whom attended the
Attempt to Burn McCreary Court House. An attempt was made at a late hour
Monday night to destroy the McCreary county courthouse at Whitley City by
unknown parties. The fire was discovered by a roomer at the Hinkle Hotel
upon retiring when the glare of the light reflected on the window pane. The
alarm was turned in and in a short while the blaze was under control. The
fire was started near the door of the Circuit Clerk's office where kerosene
had been used and a quart can which had contained kerosene was found near the
place. It was beyond a doubt the work of incendiary. Only slight damage was
done the building and no records were destroyed. Officials are on the
lookout or the guilty party or parties.
Mill Property Sold. The mill property of the Pulaski County Mill & Grain
Co., belonging to M.A. Dodson, of Science Hill, and W.L. McDaniel, deceased,

farmer, at $5,000 and Mr. J.E. Meece bought the mill property on Monticello
street for $3,750. J.S. Cooper and C.I. Ross purchased the large auto
delivery truck for $375. A very large crowed attended this sale and bidding
was lively. Capt. C.A. Mercer did the crying and he always makes a sale
lively and put lots of pep in the bidders.
Medekle. Odel Medekle, son of Dr. and Mrs. P. Medekle, died at the home of
his parents last Monday after an illness with tuberculosis which he
contracted while in the army. Funeral services were held at the First
Baptist church at ten o'clock, Thursday morning, conducted by Rev. Wells
assisted by the pastor Dr. Hunter. He was buried in the National Cemetery at
Nancy. He served with honor during the late war and it was his request that

The little son of Jessie Wells of Ano met with a terrible accident the other
day. HE and his younger brother started out to playing the morning and
finding a quart of whisky which they drank, becoming intoxicated and the lad
fell over a very high cliff. When the boys failed to return home at noon,
their parents became very anxious about them and a general search took place.
They were found under the cliff in an unconscious condition.
Resigns From Board. Mr. Thos B. Prather has resigned from the Somerset Board
of Education effective at once. Mr. Prather gives as his reason for
resigning the fact that his business interests will not permit him to give
the time to the work that it should have. The Board regrets to lose Mr.
Prather, as he has been a most active member and a loyal booster for the
Teacher Arrives. Mr. J.G. McGill of Wooster University, Wooster, Ohio,

sympathy of many friends go out to the parents in this sad hour.
Catches Chicken Thief. Andy Richardson, colored, made a big catch Monday
night when he trapped one of the largest owls seen in this section for some
time, from near a chicken roost of a prominent family in Somerset. Andy is a
brother of the Journal's utility man, Henry Richardson, who secured the large
species of the feathery "Hooter Tribe" and caged the creature for display in
the front office window of the Journal. Take a peep at this monster which
measures more than 3 feet from tip to tip, as you pass the Journal office.
This is the first "hooter" of this variety the Journal has ever been able to
cage and we are very proud of him, as by such catches the flight against the
H.C. of L. is greatly assisted.
