|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
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
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
Hardinsburg, her home, where burial took place Saturday
esteem in which she was held was evidence by the many
floral offerings which
were sent from here.

|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
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
Washington on the east to Chicago on the west, wire
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
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
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
recognition, it was apparent that the singing instinct
may descend to the
third and fourth generation."
