Chautauqua To Open Here July 1st and Continue For Five Days. Good Program.
The opening of the great Redpath Chautauqua in Somerset on July 1st, and
continuing for five days, will be welcomed by its many patrons throughout the
county, who have patronized it for the past five years and look forward each
year to its coming, with anticipated pleasure. Those in charge of the
tickets should now get down to brass tacks and see that all the pledges are
taken up and not wait until the last week before the great event takes place.
Enough pledges for tickets were easily secured last year and it only remains
now for some one to distribute them. These tickets are now with Mr. E.T.
Wesley, Chairman of the Chautauqua committee, and anyone knowing that he has
subscribed for some of the tickets, should call at once and get them. Season
tickets are much cheaper than to buy them at each entertainment, they being
$2.25, with 25 cents additional for war taxes, making a total of $2.50. Some
rare entertainments are booked for the engagement here, among them being:
The Red Grenadier Band and Male Chorus, four splendid musical companies,
great lectures on timely topics - these are notable attractions which will
appear here on the 1920 Redpath Chautauqua. The entire program is replete
with features of compelling interest and timeliness. The Remier Singers and
Players Company will be the attraction on the first afternoon. Four
talented, vivacious artists compose this company. They render programs of
great variety, combining orchestral, vocal and special novelty features.
Every number is given with a brightness and sparkle which will make this
company long remembered in the community. A striking feature of the programs
will be the rendition of selections from the standard operas. This is a
feature which never fails to please Chautauqua audiences. "The Man of the
New Age" is the lecture theme of Dr. George L. Parker who will speak here on
the opening night of the Chautauqua. Dr. Parker is a widely known
inspirational lecturer who always gives to his hearers a message distinctly
worthwhile. He is a virtle, magnetic speaker and one who holds his
audiences both by the force of his ideas and the magnetic quality of his
oratory. Earl H. Hipple, "Wizard of the Xyliphone," is manager of the Hipple
Concert Company, which will appear here in a prelude on the second afternoon
and a grand concern at night. The company's program is both classical and
popular in character and is so universal in scope that it pleases the entire
audience. Four artists of attainment compose this excellent concern company.
Judge Manford Schoonover, on the second afternoon, will give his great
lecture "Unseen Forces." Judge Schoonover is a man's man, who talks
"straight from the shoulder." He has fought his way up from obscurity to a
place of trust in the councils of his state. He is "home folks," the kind of
a man you will enjoy meeting at the close of the address. In his inspiring
lecture he portrays the great lesson of self-respect, the call of the still
small voice of one's better self.
Circuit Court News. Circuit Court is grinding along in a most satisfactory
manner and much business is being transacted. Quite a number of cases have
been disposed of during the past week. A case that attracted a good deal of
attention in court this week was the suit of $2,500.00 brought by W.G. Reed
against C.A. Mercer, the auctioneer and real estate man, for personal
injuries claimed to have been sustained in an altercation with Mr. Mercer.
The judgment of the jury was that each should pay the other 1 cent damages
and that each should pay one half the cost of the suit. Float Tarter was
given six months in jail and a fine of $500.00 for moonshining. Jim Bobbitt
was given the same sentence and Roscoe Sears got off with $300.00 and three
months in jail. When they serve this penalty Uncle Sam will take them in
charge. The grand jury indicted Scott and John Hansford for killing Jack
McKinney and his two sons. The case will come up for trial on the 16th.
Hill - McChord. Announcement has been made of the marriage of Miss Margaret
Hill of Russell Springs to Dan McChord of this city. The wedding was
solemnized in Lexington last Thursday, the ceremony taking place at the home
of the Rev. G.H. Porter in the presence of only a few friends. The following
day Mr. and Mrs. McChord returned to Lebanon and for the present will make
their home here. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Hill of
Russell Springs, and is well known in this city having for some time past
spent much of the time with her sister Mrs. Sylvester Newton and Mr. Newton.
Mr. McChord is a son of Mr. and Mrs. John McChord and one of the city's well
known young men - Lebanon News.
Sells Another Farm. The May Realty Company sold for B.F. Merkley his 120
acre farm near Nancy to M.B. Mottern of Bristol, Tenn., for $4,250.
Appointed Guard. Mrs. B.H. Linville of this county has been appointed a
guard at the reformatory. He has assumed his duties. Thirty seven other
guards were appointed to take the place of the Democrats who have been
serving. Mr. Linville is a son of Frank Linville.
Kahn a Colonel. Edward H. Kahn, the jeweler, has been made a Colonel on the
Governors staff. Very few Somerset people have thus been honored by the
Governor which makes Mr. Kahn appreciate his appointment all the more.
Wireless Station. Mr. D.S. Gooch will soon have his wireless station in
operation again. Before the war, Mr. Gooch had one of the best stations in
the state and could send and receive several thousand miles. Mr. Gooch is a
splendid wireless operator and has been offered several good positions.
Conductor Dead. News has been received here that Mr. Tuney, the popular
conductor on the Southern railway, died last Monday at his home in Ludlow.
Mr. Tuney was well known in Somerset where he had lots of friends.
Not a Maverick Now. A Tuscola girl is suing her employer for $5,000 damages
on account of a most peculiar accident which occurred in the home where she
is employed as a domestic. She was taking her bath by the kitchen range and
she stepped out of the wash pan, slipped on a cake of soap on the floor and
sat down on the stove. When she arose she was branded "Majestic." Villa
Grove (Ill.) News.
Attend Funeral. Thos. Cook and Walter Cook of Muncey, Ind., attended the
funeral of their sister, Mrs. Della Green Girdler here last week. They
returned to their home last Saturday.
Close Stores. The lid has been put on in Somerset again. Last Saturday
Sheriff Ed Thurman made the rounds and notified the soda parlors and other
places that have been keeping open on Sunday, that they must close shop.
They all willingly obeyed and as a consequence the Coca Cola drinkers spent a
dry Sunday. Judge Bethurum in his charge to the grand jury called attention
to the violation of the Sunday closing law.
>From Ludlow. Sheriff Ed Thurman returned Sunday from Ludlow where he went
after L.C. Daws, who was indicted for passing a cold check. Daws will be
tired this term of court.
Mrs. Elizabeth Wilson. After a short illness, Mrs. Elizabeth Wilson slipped
away from her host of friends and five devoted daughters, all of whom were at
her bedside Friday morning June the 4th. She was 54 years and 6 months of
age, having been born Dec. 5th, 1865. She leaves six children, five
daughters all of whom are married, and one son, Clarence, who is in the U.S.
Navy and did not arrive in time for the funeral of his mother. He reached
Somerset June 9th. Everyone who knew Mrs. Wilson has lost a devoted friend.
She literally lived for others, was a mother to every one who would let her
be. She leaves nine little grandchildren who will certainly miss "Grandma."
The thought of her always sent a thrill through them. Her funeral was
conducted by Rev. T.C. Duke, pastor of the High St. Baptist Church Sunday
afternoon, June 6th, at 1:30 o'clock, Rev. D.W. Scott was present and led in
prayer. The service was very simple and beautiful, the floral designs were
in keeping with the life she spent, silent witnesses of purity and
tenderness. Her children wish to express the deepest gratitude for the
kindness and unstinted help given them by neighbors and friends. Especially
do they thank Mrs. Sumner who cared for her as a sister. The Lord can only
repay such tender service in an hour when it is so indispensable. Mrs.
Wilson accepted Jesus as her Savior early in life and was baptized into the
fellowship of Pine Knot Baptist Church from which she never removed her
membership. Truly the earth is poorer and Heaven richer.
Card of Thanks. We want to extend our sincere thanks to our friends and
relatives for their helpfulness and kind sympathy given to us during the
short illness and death of our darling baby boy John Tyler, age 15 months, 3
days. May his little sweet life lead us to higher and better things. G.W.
Jasper, Lucy Jasper.
Tis True. Squire Parsons asked us the other night this question. "Why are
the streets of Somerset like Palistine?" We had to give up. Well, he said,
"It is a "holey" land."
Is Graduate. Louisville, Ky. June 3 - Granville C. Sandusky of Somerset,
Ky., was among the sixty young men to graduate form the Southern Baptist
Theological Seminary at the final commencement exercises this week.
Buys Lincoln Farm. The Stanford Interior Journal says: "Hughes & McCarty put
over another good one Wednesday when they sold the R.S. Scudder or F.M. Ware
farm on the Middleburg pike, 11-2 miles from McKinney, at public auction at
$201.06. B.F. Hamilton of Pulaski, a relative of our countyman M.P.
Hamilton, was the purchaser. The farm contains about 100 acres and is
reasonably well improved. The live stock and farming implements disposed of
at the sale brought good prices.
The race for Circuit Judge is attracting attention already and there is much
street corner talk about this race. It is a known fact that Judge Bethurum
will be a candidate for re-election and he is letting no grass grow under his
feet. The fact is the Judge runs from one election to the next and he never
misses an opportunity to make new friends and new votes. There are several
mentioned as probably starters against him. Among them W. Boyd Morrow, Judge
R.C. Tartar, H.C. Kennedy and others. It is likely one of the three will be
Judge's opponent if he has any.
Judge James Denton is still mentioned and quite a little boom has been
started for him for County Judge. The Judge says he is not a candidate but
his friends think they might persuade him t get into the fight.
If Judge Tartar does not seek another office it is likely he will be a
candidate for re-election to the officer of County Judge. The Judge has
quite a following in the county and is a man hard to beat.
Judge N.L. Barnett is likely to be a candidate for County Court Clerk against
C.M. Langdon who possibly will ask the voters to elect him for another four
years. Cy doesn't tell many people his business, and has made no
announcement yet, but it is understood that he wants the office again.
Miss Stella May is being prominently mentioned for the office of County Tax
Commissioner. Miss May's friends have been urging her to get into the race
assuring her she will have no opposition. Miss May has had quite a deal of
experience along this line and her friends are confident she would make good.
Having Electric Light Troubles In Other Cities. The Danville Advocate says:
"The electric lights went out last night for quite a while. There has
recently been much engine trouble at the plant. The utilities everywhere
with coal at ten dollars a ton are up against it. The Lancaster electric
light plant owners have announced that the plant in that town will be closed
down the first of August. The water and light plants at Harrodsburg which
are owned by the town are being offered for sale. This calls to mind the
fact that some day the Danville water works system will naturally wear out,
yet no sinking fund is being provided with which to renew the plant. The
water rates in Danville should be increased sufficiently to provide a sinking
fund. Such an increase would scarcely be noticed by the water consumer."
Fords Pass Thru. Six Ford cars passed thru Somerset last Sunday en route to
Georgia. They had started on the trip from Louisville and were just out of
