Pulaski County

Edited by Will C. Curd

Somerset, Ky., August 12, 1873

Summary of Town News.  The foundation wall for our new Courthouse is almost 

completed, and is considered a very excellent and substantial piece of work.

Kindricks brick on the square is now undergoing repairs and we learn that the 

two rooms below will be converted into one.  This change will furnish our 

town with another large and splendid business house.

G.W. Parker is now engaged in placing a metal roof upon the new residence of 

W.C. Davis.  Mr. parker has recently purchase the John M. Hayden property 

near our town, and will e'er long resume his place as a citizen of our 

county.  We will heartily welcome him back again.

Sewing Machine Agents are numerous in our county at present, some of whom are 

doing a good business. We also notice that several of our young men are 

selling by subscription some very valuable and useful books.  We wish them 

success, as we would like to see thousands of good books sold and distributed 

in our county.

Poll Compared.  And Huffaker's majority for the Senate in our District found 

to be 641.

A Store Robbed.  On Thursday night last, the store house of Edwards & Jones, 

12 miles east of Somerset, was broken into by one or more persons, and goods 

and money to the amount of $200 taken there from.  Search warrants are in the 

hands of the officers, but no arrests have yet been made.

In Jail.  A young man by the name of Daulton was arrested a few days ago upon 

a Bench Warrant, for disturbing religious worship, and was placed in the jail 

of our county.

Allen Jones.  Was not the Republican candidate for the Senate as stated in 

last issue.  He was he candidate for the Legislature without opposition, and 

received a good vote; and notwithstanding his Radical proclivities, we feel 

assured that he will make us a good representative.

Church Dedicated.  The new Presbyterian church at Pisgah, five miles south of 

Somerset, will be dedicated on the 4th Sunday in this month.
