Editorial.  The speech of Mrs. Cora Wilson Stewart, at the Democratic
conference in Louisville, was a gem of rhetoric and reason.  We doff our hat
in profound admiration of this most elegant and gifted woman who is devoted
to the great cause of improving the human race.  This queen of Kentucky
womanhood should be crowned by being unanimously selected as one of the four
delegates from the state-at-large to attend the National Democratic
Convention in San Francisco.

SCOTT.  The many friends of Mrs. D.W. Scott, in the city, were shocked and
deeply grieved to hear of her death, which occurred in Louisville at the St.
Joseph Infirmary on the morning of the 19th.  She had gone there for an
operation on Monday, which proved to be of a more serious nature than at first
anticipated.  Mrs. Scott was the wife of Rev. Delaware W. Scott, pastor of
the First Christian church, and as such, she tried to fulfill every duty in
her home, in the church and community, lovingly and faithfully and she will
be sadly missed by al who knew her.  Besides the bereaved husband she leaves
two sisters, Mrs. Allen Kinchloe, of Hardinsburg, Ky., and Mrs. Mary Pile of
Washington, D.C., who were at her bedside when death came.  May their sorrow
be tempered by the knowledge of what death means to her beautiful spirit. 
Out of our world, so beautiful in its spring time glory and gladness she has
been called, but she looks upon yet fairer scenes than we behold.  For it is
written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the
heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.  The
funeral services were held at Parkland Church, Louisville, Friday afternoon,
conducted by Rev. Horace Kingsbury, pastor of the Owensboro Christian church,
and Dr. Crossfield of Lexington, after which the body was taken to
Hardinsburg, her home, where burial took place Saturday afternoon.  The
esteem in which she was held was evidence by the many floral offerings which
were sent from here.
BARNES.  Mr. Wm. W. Barnes died at his home near Colo, this county, Monday
after several weeks illness.  Mr. Barnes was one of the county's most
prominent and successful farmers.  He is survived by his widow and several

superintendent of Pulaski county.  Funeral and burial took place at Mt. Zion,
Tuesday, March 23rd.

He was 69 years of age and was the father of H.D. and Lee Haynes.  Burial at

She was 80 years of age and is survived by several children.  Her husband
preceded her to the grave.  Burial at Clay Hill last Saturday.
TUTTLE.  Mr. T.P. Tuttle died at his late home at Cedar Grove last Friday the
19th, after a continued illness of several years.  He was 81 years of age,
and is survived by four sons, John, merchant near depot, Will, Ike and Joe;
two daughters, Mrs. Tollie Gover of Cedar Grove, and Mrs. McCormick of near
Hustonville.  The body was conveyed to Hustonville for funeral and burial
which took place Saturday, the 20th.
LUSK.  The body of Mr. Lapsley Lusk, who died at the Good Samaritan hospital,
Cincinnati, arrived here Wednesday and was taken to the home of his uncle,

(Thursday) morning at 10 o'clock at the First Baptist church conducted by
Rev. C.H. Talbot.  Interment city cemetery.  Mr. Lusk received fatal injuries
when he fell from a moving train north of Cincinnati and only lived a few
hours after being taken to the Cincinnati hospital.  Deceased is survived by
one brother and two sisters.  The sisters are Mrs. Wallace Muir, of
Lexington, Ky., and Mrs. Chas. Higdon of Louisville; the brother, Gibbs Lusk,
of Harlan, Ky.  His mother was a sister of Mr. J.M. Roberts.
THOMPSON.  The body of Mrs. Amanda Thompson, who died at the home of Mrs.
Bess Anderson, at Marshall, Ind., arrived here Wednesday night and was

Aurora Borealis Appears.   An excellent view of the "Aurora Borealis" or
Northern Lights, was obtained by Somerset folks Monday night, when the lights
appeared in the northern sky in one of the most brilliant displays that ever
has been seen in this city.  Many residents viewed the spectacular display. 
Nature's skylarking in the Northland made telegraphy an impossibility for 15
minutes and caused a flurry in newspaper offices in all parts of the country
when news westward bound was held up.  There were interruptions in telegraph
service early in the evening. By 10 o'clock telegraph company officials
reported that the company was beginning to "recover" a few of its circuits,
but a general realignment or balancing was necessary.  The encyclopedia lists
various types of the phenomena - arcs, rays, bands, curtains and coronas -
and there were stargazers to be found who solemnly swore they detected each
type.  According to Professor Jarmain G. Porter, Professor of Astronomy at
the University of Cincinnati, it is seldom that the lights appear with the
intensity they did last Monday night, as far south at Cincinnati.  From
Washington on the east to Chicago on the west, wire communication was
interrupted at frequent intervals for a period of three to four minutes and
then suddenly resumed.  Southern wires were not affected.   This is due to
the peculiar nature of the lights which are believed to be caused by
electrical disturbance that tangles wire communication, giving the effect of
a "ground" to the wire system.  Magnetic needles were greatly detected by the
disturbance accompanying the lights, Professor Porter said.  While the
phenomenon of the lights has never been fully understood, the fact that they
appear to radiate from the north magnetic pole has given rise to the opinion
that they have some connection with it.
Dog Tax Law Not Repealed.   "Frankfort, Ky., March 19th, 1920.  County Clerk
Pulaski Co., Sir:  Doubtless you knew there were a number of bills up at
present session of the Legislature in regard to the Dog Law, but this law was
left in full force and effect upon our statue books wit the exception of one
bill, which was passed at the eleventh hour, cutting down the expense of its
operation.  At the present time, however, we are operating under the law as
it now stands as passed in 1918, and will practically the balance of this
fiscal year.  I notice by our records that to date there are not as many dogs
in your county licensed as there were in 1919.  I wish you would make every
endeavor to collect license tax on all dogs, and devise some means whereby
the people of your county may be informed that this law is in effect and will
be enforced.  As you know, the Dog Law is intended first to protect live
stock industry, second to protect the licensed dog, third to do away with
unlicensed dogs, fourth the revenues there from, after paying expenses of
operating the law, are to pay claims for live stock killed and injured by
dogs, and fifth the residue of such income to go to the County School Fund of
the county in which it is collected.  Hence each county is the beneficiary of
the enforcement of this law.  I desire to call upon each officer who is
charged with the responsibility under this law to do his utmost toward
enforcing same now.  Trusting to have your hearty and prompt cooperation and
response to this matter, I am.  Yours Very Truly, W.C. Hanna, Commissioner of
Agriculture."   I wish to call your attention to the above letter, in order
to save you extra expense.  In case you cannot come to town mail me a
description of your dog as follows: Breed, sex, age, color and any
distinguishing marks, together with fee as follows: $1 for first male dog,
and $2 for each additional male dog, $2 for female dog and $4 for each
additional female dog. In each case send 2 cent stamp to return it to you. 
Don't send any money unless you send description of dog as indicated above. 
Yours Truly, C.M. Langdon, County Clerk.

About Pulaskians.   The Kentucky Republican published at Frankfort has the
following about Pulaskians:  "Gladstone Wesley, of Somerset, the Governor's
home town, was formerly a member of the aviation service, and was nominated
for the legislature before he was mustered out of the service.  Wesley is a
descendent of Charles Wesley, the human writer and singer, and from his
manner of calling, "Mr. Speaker: when everybody was clamoring for
recognition, it was apparent that the singing instinct may descend to the
third and fourth generation."
