We are told, in one day last week, three automobile
springs were broken, several heads cracked, ribs broken,
and other injuries sustained by people trying to ride
over the streets of the city. We head one man
remark - "I hope it was one of those fellows who
stopped the permanent street improvements."
One of the big problems of the day is - how are we going
to keep the boys on the farm. Since the soldier has
returned from the army and has traveled much and seen
lots, he is not content to stay on the farm. Then
the high wages of the city is another attraction.
This little squib is prompted by the fact that the writer
saw, one day this week, over twenty boys from Pulaski
board the train between Somerset and Eubank for different
cities in Ohio and Michigan. We made an
investigation, to be sure where they were traveling, and
found all were headed for factories either in Cincinnati,
Dayton, Akron or Detroit. Now this is a serious
problem. There is a big shortage of farm labor in
Pulaski County. There is no farmer with adequate
help. We know it is an absolute fact that boys are
leaving home and that the women and girls are doing the
farm work. Many farms in Pulaski County were not
touched with a plow this year because of the shortage of
help. What is the solution?
Coolidge Knows It. Gov. Coolidge knows that he was
nominated for vice president on the Republican ticket for
Governor Edwin P. Morrow went up there and told him about
it officially. There was a large crowd present to
hear it and of course the "Gov." made a great
Republicans Name Campaign Committee And Will Soon Start
To Work In County. The sub-committee appointed by
the Republican County Committee to select a campaign
chairman and an advisory committee to assist him in the
work of the campaign this fall ahs made the following
appointments: Campaign Chairman, R.C. Tartar,
Secretary, Mrs. William Curtis, Members of the committee:
Judge B.J. Bethurum, Judge W.B. Morrow, Walter N.
Flippin, J.N. Mayfield, C.P. Dause, Dr. T. L. Gamblin,
Arthur Jenkins, E.T. Wesley, H.C. Kennedy and W.A.
Judge Tartar said
that he would open headquarters in a few days and begin
his work of organization. The clerical work will be
in charge of Mrs. Curtis. In the appointment of the
above committee an effort is seen to "jolly"
certain politicians and members of the old committee,
with the hope of getting them into the fold of he new
organization. It is not likely to work, however,
for it is a known fact that Judge Tartar is persona non
grata to the majority of the opposition. Should the
old committee be given a new hearing before the state
committee and by some hook or crook win out then the
above campaign committee will go to the junk pile and a
new organization perfected. The fun has started
boys. Keep your eyes and ears open and hold your
Vacancy In The Office of Superintendent of City Schools
to Be Filled By The Board. The Board of Education
is now looking for a good man to take the place of Dr.
J.P.W. Brouse, who has been Superintendent of the City
Schools for the past sixteen years. Dr. Brouse has
been in bad health for the past two years and it is said
he will not continue in school work but will enter in
other lines of business. The Board will not go
hastily into the selection of a man. They will
thoroughly investigate every application and will get the
very best school man possible for the position. It
will take unusual ability to successfully manage the
school system in Somerset. It is a big job for a
big school man. The Board of Education has about
thirty applications for the place and they are sifting
them out now and making investigations. The salary
is going to be a big item. Salaries in the teaching
profession have advanced so much in the past year that it
will be hard to secure a Superintendent at the salary
paid here to fore. The schools in Somerset have
made rapid progress in the past few years and with the
equipment and able corps of teachers the Board of
Education is determined that Somerset shall continue to
boast of the best schools in the south. The Board
of Education looks forward to a splendid year, one in
which there will be much accomplished. For the
first time agriculture will be taught. The United
States government pays part of the expense for this
course. There is a good outlook for a winning
football team and the boys are already talking about what
they are going to do.

many friends are sending out congratulations and best
wishes to this happy couple.Offered Fine Place.

in the state, has been offered the place of Athletic
Director of Haskell Institute, Lawrence, Kansas.
This school is one of the largest of its kind in the
United States and it is quite an honor for Captain
Dexheimer that he was offered the place. He refused
the offer because he desires to remain in Somerset and
continue his insurance and automobile business.
To Cincinnati. James Wirt and James Allen, two of
our fine young men, left last week for Cincinnati to
secure employment. They are both hustlers and we
know they will make good. It is to be pitied that
our young men have to
leave home in order to get some means of
livelihood. We should have factories here to keep
them at home.

rooms over M.L. Gover's store on Mt. Vernon St. His

been selling same. Couch claims his home is in
Tennessee. He has a wife and one child.
Explosion Near Frazure. On Monday night, July 12th,
a great explosion occurred about one half mile from
Frazure. The cause is supposed to have been from a
large pocket of gas form a pool of oil. The report
was heard for miles around and the impact tore a very
large hole in the earth obstructing a road and damaging a
field of corn. Many sightseers went to the scene
which was in a low place near the Cumberland River and it
is believe by many that oil in large quantities could be
found near where this unusual eruption of the earth took
place. Oil promoters are investigating the
possibility of locating an oil well near the spot.

favorable for the Pu-John Oil operations in that
county. Mr. Waddle said the first well was down

railroad run close to it. The property is very
Convention. The Fifth District Sunday School

success. A splendid crowd was present who brought
