The Somerset Journal-The Oldest Democratic Newspaper in the Mountains of Kentucky
Somerset, Ky., Friday, May
Editorial. This week the Journal is twenty five years old. During these
years many newspapers have come and gone in Pulaski. This has not always
been a good newspaper field and for that reason papers started here were
generally short lived. To run a first class paper in any community several
things must unite. The people must take and promptly pay for their local
paper. The merchants, the farmers and business people must use the columns
of the paper to boost and sell their wares. The citizens must unite in every
way to encourage, stick by and assist the managers of a newspaper in order to
have a real live one; a paper that will publish the news of the community and
develop a demand for large business enterprises throughout the county. Such
a paper is of a great value to the people in every walk of life. The Journal
is here to stay and to serve the people. It has always been able to weather
the storm. The price of paper is sky high; wages are greater than ever
before and living is much more expensive. Yet by a slight increase in
subscription, we shall march on in our effort to give the people of Pulaski
and adjoining counties a high class, progressive, wide-awake Journal to which
they are justly entitled. The number of our readers is daily increasing; our
advertisers are many. By an increase of both, we will have even a better and
more useful paper than we have ever had before. Our purpose is to help the
farmers, to assist the merchants and business men, to boost the cause of
education and urge the benefits of the church, to better mankind, to enlarge
and beautify the community in which we live and by means of all these, to
make Pulaski greater, grander and better. The Journal keenly appreciates the
loyalty of its patrons; the interest manifested by its many readers and
advertisers. It's watchword is service. Its intense desire is to publish
the news without fear or favor; to be of help to the people, to the end that
we may all prosper, be better and more useful. God bless our people
everywhere and may the Journal live long to carry out the objects herein
Editorial. If you want to know who the boss is in Louisville now it doesn't
take you long to find out after you have been in the city a few minutes.
Just find out who owns the Brown Taxi Co., and you have the boss of the city.
Cars of this favored taxi company owned by Mr. Hert, are allowed by the
police to park most anywhere and stay as long as they like, but you let
anyone else drive up and the police will almost insult you. The police are
surely loyal to the hand that feeds them.
Growing Impatient. The people of Pulaski County are growing impatient over
the slowness of road improvement in the county. During these progressive
times people are not content to live on mud roads. Our public officials must
wake up to this fact. Pulaski needs more pikes and needs them now. The
Journal hear complaints every day of the awful condition of the roads.
Parker's Expected. The Danville Messenger had the following item last week
under a Somerset date line: "In a recent letter to relatives, Mrs. Sam
Parker of Honolulu, announces the prospects of their leaving for the states
in the near future. Dr. and Mrs. Parker were among the first of our young
people whom we lost to the war. The doctor offered himself for duty shortly
after hostilities were declared. His promotion has been rapid as was
expected by everyone who knew him. For more than two years he and Mrs.
Parker have been on the islands. He is Major Parker now, and from every
viewpoint, a true soldier and citizen. Mrs. Parker is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. George Sallee, and we feel sure has played no small part in Major
Parker's continual rise to promotions.
No Work At Akron. Several of our young men from Pulaski County have in the
past few weeks gone to Akron, Ohio, and other points in Ohio, seeking
employment. A great many of them have been disappointed because the
factories in that section are turning men off. Several men from Pulaski who
have been working in Akron, Toledo, Detroit and other cities have quit their
jobs and returned home knowing that it would be only a short time before they
would be let out.
Buys Farm. Mr. R.O. Jones, the hustling "Knight of the Grip," has purchased
a twelve acre truck farm about two miles from New Albany, Indiana, and will
move there to make his home. Mr. Jones is leaving Pulaski county because he
wants to live where there are good pikes. He says he would rather live in
Pulaski than any place on earth but bad roads are too expensive. If our
public officials don't wake up to the great and growing needs of the people
we will soon lose all our best farmers.
Corn planting will be completed this week if the weather stays fair. Farmers
were badly behind but they got scared at so much bad weather then when a good
work day came they exerted every effort to get ahead and have succeeded
fairly well in catching up with the season.
Pulaski, The Buckwheat County. Pulaski County is widely known as a buckwheat
county. A County Agent in Pike County, Illinois, is on a deal with buckwheat
dealers in this county for a large order of seed buckwheat for the farmers in
Pike County, Illinois, who have failed to get land to corn on account of bad
weather an dare planning to put in a large acreage of buckwheat.
Sweet Clover. Sweet clover cannot be excelled for a soil builder in rough
limestone land. Farmers in northeastern Pulaski near Plato are taking hold
of sweet clover and they find it grows on exceedingly rocky limestone land.
Mrs. J.J. Purcell has just seeded a field this spring to sweet clover and so
has M.E. Burton. Lum Randolph has been growing sweet clover for three years
and he now has a crop waist high right on a rocky point where nothing else
likes to grow. Sweet clover will thrive well on any rocky limestone land and
is an excellent crop to fill gullies and washes.
Tobacco. Tobacco setting has started and from the looks of the beds there
seems to be a good chance for Pulaski County to get out a reasonable early
crop. It is reported that tobacco beds in the Bluegrass are from two to
three weeks behind a normal season.
