Somerset, Ky., Friday, April 23,
Robert M. Phillippi, Burnside, Ky. 1848 - 1920. Into the Great Beyond that
he feared not, entered Robert M. Phillippi, April 18, 1920, after a short
illness due to infirmities of the aged. He was a native of Pennsylvania, but
lived in his adopted State of Kentucky, at Burnside for nearly 40 years.
Honest and industrious; kind hearted toward all living creatures, a friend to
the old, to the young and to little children, this community is a better one
for having had him as a part of it for so many years. He had many varied
experiences during his life that he would tell of when questioned, notably,
the great Johnstown, Pa., flood where so many lives were lost - one of the
greatest disasters of the 19th Century, as well as his war experience of
nearly four years under General Grant in our Civil War. For many years he
was connected with a lumber company here in whose service he rode these hills
and valleys, buying timber, and accidentally making friends with all the
people with whom he came in contact. This work gave him an opportunity to
indulge his love for the out of doors and to try a session with the game fish
that formerly abounded in these waters was one of his keen delights. It is
with regret and sadness we note his passing, realizing however, that it must
be so in order that the great scheme of Life and Death may be property worked
out. A gentle soul has gone home and I cannot but say these few words in
sincerest appreciation of an acquaintance with him since the writer's
barefoot days. The bereft family have a good heritage left them and should
be proud. The wife, three daughters, one son, four grandchildren and one
great grandchild survive.
A Very Sad Death. Mrs. C.C. Hitch died yesterday at the noon hour. Much
sympathy is extended to the bereaved husband and family. The Journal learned
of her death just as we were closing our forms for this issue. A still-born
baby arrived at the Hitch home yesterday morning and it was feared by the
attending physician that her condition was very critical and she passed away
about 1 p.m. A more complete announcement will be given in our next issue.
Street Car Strike. Street Car motormen on the local traction line went out
on a strike last Wednesday at three o'clock. They notified Manager Shotwell

cents more on the hour was not met. The matter was settled about five
o'clock and the cars started running. The lineman also struck for higher
wages Wednesday. They were out just a short time.
