to Journal. Dear Sir: Please change my
address to Camp Lewis, Washington, as we are moving there
next week and I certainly do not want to miss an issue of
your paper. You certainly are getting out a
wonderful paper and to read it makes one think that he is
almost in the "Queen City of the
Mountains." By the way, my Commanding Officer,
Col. G.H. Williams, was with Colonel Chas. Morrow and the
27th Infantry in Siberia. He says Col. Morrow is
one of the best officers in the army. Very truly
yours, Joseph H. Hussing, 1st. Lieut., 58th Infantry.

Wrecks. Freight wrecks are becoming quite numerous
in the upper pat of the state on the Southern Railway,
according to reports. Wrecks appear to be almost
daily occurrences. About six wrecks have occurred
during the past week or ten days but none of them have
been of a very serious nature. Last week four cars
were wrecked on the Cincinnati Southern at
Faulconer's Station, five more north of Danville, where
they jumped the track, two of them turning over, but
little damage was done to the tracks or the cars.
No one was hurt. Traffic was delayed for several
hours. Also, it is said, on the Louisville Southern
road at McBrayer Station, near Nicholasville, the car
trucks under one car on a freight train broke and it
required a delay of four hours in traffic. There
have been two freight wrecks near High Bridge the past
few days and one at Jessamine, near Nicholasville.
And it is reported that on the St. Louis division of the
Southern four freight cars were derailed at Princeton,

Ashland, Kentucky, is one of the best paved towns in the
state. A progressive Mayor and Council several
years ago decided Ashland should have better
streets. An ordinance was passed to pave certain
streets. There was a howl from the property
owners. The Mayor and Council were called every
vile name under the sun. This did not stop
them. When the first contract was completed they
passed another ordinance to extend the paving to other
streets. There was more cussing. But the
Mayor paid no attention to this. He kept right on
until every street in Ashland was paved. About two
weeks ago the citizens of that city, the ones who had
done all the cussing, gave him a banquet and his praise
was sung around the festal board. The men who had
fought permanent street improvement were loudest in their
praise of this man for the progressive stand he took.
The City Council
took a great step forward last Monday night when they
passed a resolution favoring the paving of Fountain
Square and other streets in the city. Every citizen
in Somerset should back them up in this progressive step.
