Somerset, Ky., Friday, May 21, 1920.
Editorial. About 1,500 persons were killed at railroad crossings in the
United States last year. Most of them were in automobiles. Some didn't
look; other's didn't listen, and very many tried to beat the train across the
tracks. Men waste hours and hoard seconds. A fellow will loaf all day and
then risk his life in his hurry to cross a congested street or race across a
track ahead of a train, to save a minute! It's a poor sort of thrift.
What's the hurry? It's better to get there late than not at all. Everybody
knows this, of course! But the headline that tells of a family wiped out at
a railroad crossing has become a commonplace of the day's news. "Stop, Look,
Listen!" is the classic among snappy slogans. Everybody knows it by heart,
but nearly everybody forgets it when he needs it most.
Men of Pulaski County Are Urged to Attend Decoration Exercises. All
ex-service men of Pulaski County are urged to attend the decoration exercises
at the National Cemetery. There will be a special program rendered by the
men from Pulaski who saw service in the late war. The war department has
given permission for these men to wear their uniform on this day. There are
something like fourteen hundred ex-service men in Pulaski county and it is
hoped that a greater part of these men will be present and take part in the
Utilities Co. Offers to Sell Railway to Somerset People For Fifteen Thousand.
Mr. J.L. Waddle read a letter from the Kentucky Utilities Co., before the
Pulaski County Citizens Business Club last Friday, in which they offer to
sell the street railway to Somerset capital for $15,000.00 but with the
understanding that they are to get an increase in their water and light
rates. Mr. Waddle and associates have taken the matter of purchasing the
plant under advisement.
Will Start Work. Mr. A.T. Sears, who will have charge of the work on the
Stanford Pike, is making all preparations to begin work this week or the
first of next. The heavy rains has caused a delay in the work. Mr. Sears
says that he is going to push the work just as fast as he can and he also
says that he is going to build the best piece of pike in the county. The
Judge should begin work on the road to Burnside and the approach to Pitman
Creek bridge also. These are two of the most important pieces of work to be
done in the county.
Some Rattler. Mr. L.E. Meece killed a rattlesnake last Saturday that
measured over five feet. He was riding along Haynes Knob and spied the
animal making toward him. His life was short for Mr. Meece had good aim. He
now hangs in Mr. Meece's office and has been viewed by many.
Sells Home. Governor Edwin P. Morrow has sold his property on Oak Street to
Mr. Ben Kohler of this city. Mr. Ben V. Smith is now living in the house.
Mr. Smith will begin the erection of a beautiful home on North Main Street
Hail. Dexter Hail, son of Mr. Berry Hail, died at his home in this city last
Sunday morning after a short illness. Funeral services were held at the
South Somerset Baptist Church Tuesday afternoon, conducted by his pastor,
Rev. T.C. Duke. Internment followed in the City Cemetery. Mr. Hail was a
young man of splendid morals and a devout Christian. He had been employed
lately at the Ferguson Shops where he had many friends. He also worked
awhile for the Southern Express Company and for M.L. Gover. He leaves a wife
and two children.
Col. Morrow Coming. Col. Chas. H. Morrow will arrive in Somerset this week
to visit his brother, Col. S.S. Morrow, and other relatives. He will be
accompanied by his twin brother, Governor Morrow. Col. Morrow has just
returned from Siberia where he has been located for the past three years.
Before going to Siberia he was in China and the Philippines. It has been
over five years since Col. Morrow has been at home. He will likely be
stationed in Kentucky as Inspector General of the State Militia.
Property Changes. Messrs W.H. and Coleman Stigall purchased the Gann
property on East Columbia St. this week. Mr. Gann will give possession at
once. Mr. J.L. Waddle bought the Hail property on Maple Ave.
John Randall Dead. "Uncle" John Randall, well known in and around Somerset,
died of heart failure at his home on North Maple Street Wednesday at the noon
hour. He was 64 years of age and had been in declining health for several
months. He was formerly employed at the Queen City Bakery, but had to give
up his position on account of bad health. He was quiet and unassuming in his
disposition and may he find the path smoother and the ravel easier in the
land beyond the skies is the hope of his friends.
Doing Fine in N.Y. Mr. Albert L. Clothier, a former Somerset boy, now
located in New York City is making a name for himself in that metropolis. He
has been a member of the firm of Wood, Clothier & Herberle income tax
experts. In a card just issued Mr. Clothier announces that he has
established offices at 111 Broadway and is prepared to act in an advisory
capacity in tax problems and to represent clients before the proper

To Training Camp. John Carr of this city and Charles T. Warren of Science
Hill, who are attending State University, have been appointed to represent
the University at the summer Reserve Officers Training Camp at Camp Custer,
Michigan. They will be in camp about three months.
Disappointing. The report of the Census Bureau giving Somerset less than
5,000 population was disappointing to the people of the city. There are many
who believe there is a mistake in the figures and there has been some talk of
asking the department for a recount.
Griffin Appointed. Dr. T.R. Griffin, formerly of Somerset, has been
appointed Medical Advisor to the Workmen's Compensation Board. The
appointment was made by Governor Morrow. Dr. Griffin has been located in St.
Petersburg, Fla., for the past year.
Two Licenses Issued. Only two marriage licenses have been issued from the
clerk's office during the past week. They were for Ingram Heath, 26 to
Mollie Barnes Durham, 26; and Vola Hall to Verla Lester, 21.
Where Are The Dogs? County Clerk Langdon reports that up to May 10th, he had
issued a little over 500 dog licenses for the year 1920, as compared with the
same period last year he had listed over 2,000. Where are the 1,500 dogs
that were licensed last year? The dog law has not been repealed as some seem
to think, but there is a very severe penalty for those who fail or refuse to
have their dogs licensed.
Killed in Illinois By Horse's Kick. The following account of the accidental
death of Lemuel P. Neikirk, formerly of Somerset, Ky., is copied from a Mt.
Carmel, Ohio, paper: As a result of being kicked on the left temple by a
horse which he was preparing to unharness, Lemuel P. Neikirk, 67 years of
age, living half a mile west, and three quarters of a mile south of
Lancaster, died Saturday evening at about 9 o'clock. The accident resulting
in his death occurred about 1:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The deceased
and his grandson, Alva, aged about 12 years, had been to Sumner. On
returning home they unhitched and put the horses in the stable, leaving them
harnessed. A little later, they went to unharness the animals after feeding.
The harness was taken from one. Mr. Neikirk started to crawl through a
crack where some planks were off between the stalls into the stall where the
other horse was. The animal became frightened and kicked him on the left
temple. He was rendered unconscious and did not recover consciousness before
death. The deceased was born in Somerset, Ky., Aug. 1, 1852. He was married
in Kentucky, in 1875, and was the father of ten children. Two children are
dead, William Parker and an infant. The widow with the following children
survive: Charley, Ishmal W., James Y., Stella Neikirk and Dorris Harness, of
Lancaster; Archibald, John and Lizzie Howe of Edgar County, Ill.
Proposes to Establish an Industrial School in Somerset. Mr. J.M. Ross has
returned from Los Angeles, California, after an absence of seven years, will
present before the Pulaski County Citizens Business Club this Friday evening
a brief synopsis of plans which he has for establishing a chain of Industrial
Schools in the Cumberland country. It would not be practical to attempt to
state the details of the very comprehensive plans for this good and much
needed institution for this section here and now, but that will be fully
explained and worked out as the days and weeks go by; it may be appropriate
to state that all students will be required to work the same as study and to
wear the same kind of clothes during school hours and those who have no money
are especially the ones who will be assisted to obtain an education. It is
the intention of Mr. Ross to first organize an association that will take
full charge of the organizing and managing these schools and the several
industrial enterprises which will be affiliated with these schools. The
Cumberland Industrial School Association to be capitalized at $25,000.
Whether or not Mr. Ross will be able to accomplish what he proposes is yet to
be seen, but the Journal heartily endorses same plan whereby Somerset will
have more places of employment for our young men and young women which make
it so they would not have to go elsewhere for employment.
With Baisley. Mr. C.G. Faulkner, who has been conducting a store on the
south side of Somerset for the past 15 years, and who sold his business there
to L.W. Gossett recently, is now with his partner, H.L. Baisley at their well
known stand on Maple Street where they will increase their hardware business.
