Big Robbery.  It is said that fully $100,000.00 worth of merchandise has been stolen from box cars in the Danville, Ky., railroad yards in the past month.  The detectives finally got a confession from one person whom they caught.  The goods were being wholesaled to different firms and individuals in Danville.  Some fifteen or twenty are implicated it is said.

D.E. McQueary's Three Children Disappear From Home In Washington City, He Claims.    Washington, June 16 - Convinced that his divorced wife can shed some light on the mysterious disappearance of his three children who disappeared yesterday, Dennis E. McQueary, Treasury Department, who came here from Frankfort, Ky., today asked the Washington police to look for her.  Mr. McQueary was divorced from Maude McQueary, mother of the children, in Frankfort in 1918.  She since has married Eugene Kelley with whom she went to California.  Last January, McQueary and his three children, Catherine, 11 years old, Smith, 9, and James, 7, came to Washington.  McQueary was advised of disappearance of his children when he learned that they did not appear at school yesterday afternoon .  At the school today it was said that a woman who bore a striking resemblance to the girl, Catherine, called at her classroom yesterday during the lunch hour.  She asked for the girl and when told she had gone to lunch, left.  Later she was seen near the McQueary residence talking to the children.  At Mr. McQueary's request, police have launched a nation-wide search for his former wife.  The Journal inquired at Burnside and it is said that Mrs. McQueary had not arrived there.

47 Divorce Cases For Trial in McCreary.  There are 47 divorce cases on the docket in the McCreary Circuit Court which convened last Monday.  This is a record number and it would seem that marriage in that county is a failure.

A Visit To Akron.  Mr. James A. Dykes of Akron, Ohio, who is employed at the B.F. Goodrich plant writes the following to the Journal: "My brother W.F. Dykes of Ferguson made his friends and relatives a visit here recently and we were all delighted to see him.  It was an agreeable surprise when he walked into the home of his daughter Dana Gregory.  He also has a sister here, Mrs. Mary Bray.  We drove him 450 miles thru Akron and surrounding towns.  Sunday, his last day here, we drove to Canton, Ohio, over the best piece of road in the state and viewed the beautiful McKinley Monument and tomb, the cemetery in which he was interred until the completion of the monument and the beautiful little cottage and home in which he lived when elected President. 
Next we went thru the B.F. Goodrich plant where about 28,000 people are employed.  That trip alone was worth a visit to Akron.  I am always glad to get the Journal.  It is better than a letter from home.  You sure give all the news.  I showed a copy of your paper to the advertising manager of the Goodrich plant and he has promised to advertise with you soon.  I have been with the Goodrich people for a long time and have a splendid position.  It is a fine place to work.  We have quite a bunch of Pulaski county boys here.  They all seem to be getting along fine.  Some of them are saving money and others are spending all they make having a good time.  Yours for success, Jas. A. Dykes, Goodrich Station, Akron, Ohio.
