Booming Is Business At Burnside.  Journal Man Call On Business Men Friday.  A representative of the Journal called on the business enterprises of Burnside a few hours last Friday and found business booming at each and every place we visited.  We found Mr. Crutcher, head of the home office of the Cumberland Grocery Co., "busy as a bumble-bee," as he stated it, and all the clerical, shipping and receiving forces moving about in regular city style.  Also, Messrs H.A. Gable and H.B. Stevick were right on the job at the offices of the Hoffman Brothers Company where they are having their office rooms remodeled and by the way, this firm of Hoffman Brothers Company is enjoying a splendid growing business, keeping their machines whizzing from early morning till late at night.  Mr. Gable, manager of the Burnside house is a live wire in his particular line and understands his business thoroughly.  We also called on Cashier Bradshaw, Mr. Montgomery and the force at the First National Bank, Messrs N.I. Taylor, W.H. Williams, Harry Wait and Mr. Johnson and the rest of the congenial and accommodating force that make up the crew at the Geo. P. Taylor Co., where we found the firm enjoying a fine business. Several were gathered at this place for the culling demonstration of hens by Mr. Chapin, of the Experiment Station of Lexington.  We visited several other places including Dr. Lowdenback, Dick, Denny and Vanhook, the Seven Gables Hotel and other places of business, and without exception business seemed to be booming everywhere; everybody in a fine mood, and prosperity, peace, happiness and plenty echoed from the hill tops to the clatter of machinery and the co-mingling of voices, and the word "welcome" was printed in large letters on every door we entered and beamed brightly form the faces of those we met.

A Big Concern.  The Thompson-Humble Lumber & Stave Co., of Somerset, is one of the largest lumber concerns in this section of the state.  At the present time they employ about 100 men and are manufacturing several cars of staves a day.  They have four trucks in operation between Burnside and Monticello where two of their mills are located.  They have another mill at Gatliff, Ky., and another at Shadyland on the Southern Railway near the Tennessee line.  The company is composed of I.D. Thompson, L.H. Humble and A.R. Humble.

Many Applicants.  The City Board of Education has many applicants for the position of Superintendent of Schools.  Quite a number of applicants have visited Somerset this week to meet with the Board and to look at the schools.  No one has been employed yet.  In addition to Superintendent there are other vacancies to fill caused by recent resignations.

Increase Allotment.  A.J. Crawford, the Ford man, tells us that he has been allotted fifty per cent more cars for this fiscal year which begun August 1st.  Mr. Crawford says that he will be in a position to take car of most all orders now and suggests that those desiring cars place their order at once.  This will be good news to those who have been disappointed for so long.

Bethurum and Cooper.  The Kentucky Republican in a recent issue says that the 11th district has plenty more good gubernatorial timber and that J.S. Cooper of Somerset is looked upon as material for the campaign three years hence when Mr. Morrow steps down and out.  The same paper also compliments Judge B.J. Bethurum by saying that he is Senatorial timber and that some day he will have a seat in the upper house at Washington.  "Judge Bethurum is one of the ablest Judges in the state" the article says in winding up its eulogy of these men.

Somerset Woman Faints From Want of Food.  The Louisville Herald carried the
following story Tuesday: "A young woman, who was found unconscious near Thirty-Second St. and Portland Ave., Monday night, and was taken to the City Hospital in a stupor, told authorities yesterday that she was Mrs. Edward Lindsey and that she had fainted from hunger and fatigue after walking the streets all day in search of work.  She is recovering at the City Hospital.  Mrs. Lindsey stated that she came to Louisville Monday morning from Somerset and that she had just sufficient money to pay her fare here.  She walked the streets from shop to shop and office to office in search of work, she said, without stopping to eat, and Monday evening was so overcome with hunger and fatigue that she fainted.  She has two children, five and eight years of age. She will be given work as son as she leaves the hospital."

Cash Drawer Robbed. Some one entered the rear door of W.R. Carl's store last Saturday afternoon and robbed the cash drawer in the grocery department of all its contents except one $1 check, while all the clerical force and Mr. Carl were busy in the front of the store.  Mr. Carl says the thief carried off between $40.00 and $50.00 in currency.

Sells Another.  Stanly A. Waddle, district agent for the Delco Light & Power System, sold another plant this week and the purchaser was Mr. Chester A. Cain, of Science Hill.  Mr. Waddle is having great success with this lighting plant and has sold quite a number lately.  He will have an exhibition at the Fair.

A Good Friend.  Mr. W.H. Williams, who lives on Crab Orchard, Route 1, was intown Monday and paid the Journal office a pleasant call.  Mr. Williams has been a subscriber of the Journal ere since it started over thirty years ago.  He very often writes a newsy letter from his section which is enjoyed very
much by the people living in that section.

Slacker Dragnet Spread.  Washington.  Rewards aggregating $536,000 will be paid by the War Department for information that will lead to the arrest of 10,720 "slackers" or draft dodgers of the State of Ohio, against whom charges have been filed by the department.  Local police departments of the various cities, the Military Intelligence Division of the War Department and the Bureau of Investigation of the War Department will co-operate in spreading a dragnet which will cover virtually the entire state in the hunt for draft dodgers.

Mail Planes By September.  Washington.  Air mail service from New York to San Francisco is expected to be inaugurated the first week in September, Assistant Postmaster General Prager announced.  The exact date for starting of the first transcontinental air mail service, however, will be contingent, said Mr. Prager, on completion of the landing fields at Cheyenne, Wyo., Salt Lake, Utah, and Reno, Nev.  Those cities have obtained the fields and let contracts for construction of the hangers.  Both fields are expected to be ready in time.

Barnett - Ford.  Mr. Zerno M. Ford of Luretha and Miss Rebecca Jane Barnett of this city, were married in Danville, Ky., last Monday afternoon by Rev. Walker, pastor of the Baptist Church there.  The marriage took place in the parsonage.  Immediately following the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Ford left for a trip through the West.  They will visit Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Galveston, Tex., and other towns.  Mrs. Ford is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Milford E. Barnett and is one of the most popular teachers in the county.  She has been a member of the teaching corps in the city schools for some time.  Mr. Ford is an architect and is at present employed at the Southern Railway shops.  He has a splendid position and is highly thought of by his employers.  He is very active in church work being Secretary of the Baptist Association.  This popular young couple have the best wishes of a host of friends.

Making Good.  The Journal man was talking to a member of the Kentucky Railroad Commission the other day in Louisville and he told us that Judge J.S. Cooper was making a splendid record as Chairman.  Judge Cooper is always looking out to help Somerset and this end of the state as much as he can.  The first week he was a member he had the fast passenger trains stopping at Burnside.  He wants to help Somerset get better train service from the South if he can.

Mayfield of the Somerset High School, has handed in his resignation to the Board of Education to take effect at once.  Prof. Mayfield has accepted a position with the Farmers National Bank of this city.  The Board regrets to lose the services of Mr. Mayfield for he was a splendid teacher.  He will make the bank an excellent employee.

Bryant.

Interesting Letter.  A letter written by a Mrs. Kline of New Jersey to Johnson Bros., Somerset, Ky.  "Johnson Bros., Farm Brokers, Somerset, Ky.  Gentlemen:  I received the unusually clever little booklet that you sent me.  I have passed it out among my friends here and after giving it the once over they all declare that the sweet tone of the verses about Kentucky makes them all want to go there someday.  I have proved that my impressions when I visited around Faubush at least ten years ago are correct, I never met up with kinder folks than those down in that country.  Myself and husband are too old now, to ever think of living on a farm we know nothing of the care of such things.  But after awhile a little cottage with a yard in or near Somerset where the bunch of my kinfolks could drop in to see me when they came into town, would be the crowning joy of my life.  You know we have been great globe trotters but feel that it is time to settle down, and as they always say at the close of a play or finish of a book, 'live happy ever after.'   The rolling stone gathers no moss, has been our luck too, yet my husband can always keep us above want and we have a little nest egg hoping that things may shape so we can pass the declining years of our life among the ones that we consider dear to us. 
I remain,Very respectfully, Mrs. Kline."

Railroad Fares Go Up September 1st.  Thirty-Five Percent Freight Increase. 
Passenger fares are to be increased 20 per cent with a surtax with the privilege of riding in a pullman of 50 per cent of the pullman fare, this sum goes to the railroad concerned.  It will cost $1.00 more to ride to Cincinnati and if you use a pullman it will be $1.50.  To Louisville it will be about the same and to Lexington about 50 cents more.  The fare to Chicago, including pullman tax, will be about $19.50, New York $46.00, Washington, $35.00.  The increase on freight rates will be 25 per cent for this section of the country which will make freight from Cincinnati about 80 centers a hundred.  This will mean several thousand dollars a year more money out of the pockets of the business men.  The increase was given the railroads by the Wage Labor Board and is to cover the $600,000,000.00 raise given to employees of the railroad companies.


Population of Somerset And Other Towns In County Are Announced By Census Department.  The Census Department at Washington has announced the census for 1920 for Pulaski County.  It also gives the population of each district and incorporated town.  The county lost in population during the past ten years but this was on account of part of the county being taken to form McCreary County.  The growth of Somerset is a disappointment to the people and there is a general belief that the figures are wrong.  The population of the city based on the number of school children was though to have been about 6,000.  The following is the report of the department:  Pulaski County, 1920, 34,010;  1910, 35,936; 1900, 31,293.  District 1: including Ferguson town and Somerset City, 5,664.  District 2: 4,128.  District 3: 4,306.  District 4: including Science Hill Town, 4,154.  District 6: 4,818.  District 7: including Burnside Town, 7,346.  Incorporated places:  Burnside Town, 1920: 1,078, 1920: 1,117; Eubank Town, 1920, 312, 1910, 182;  Ferguson Town, 1920, 520, 1910, 404; Science Hill Town 1920, 331, 1910, 257; Somerset City 1920, 4,672, 1910, 4,491, 1900, 3,384.  No comparison of population can be made; part taken to form McCreary County since 1910; county redistricted.


Slow Work On The Stanford Pike, Little Progress Being Made It Is Said.  Citizens living on the Stanford Pike near the new work that is being done report very slow progress.  The people living in that section seem to think that there are plenty of teams and workmen available.  Mr. A.W. Sears, who had charge of the work for some time has been relieved.  Mr. Sears is a splendid road man and it is to be regretted that he is not still on the job.  He had planned to have the entire three miles completed by October.  This is one of the most important pieces of road in the county and work should be pushed instead of retarded.  We hope the Judge will see to it that plenty of labor is provided so the work can go on.  A sufficient force should be put to work to accomplish something.


On Vacation.  "Rural Rooter" Barnett, the veteran mail carrier, is taking a much needed vacation.  He says he is enjoying it very much.  Mr. Barnett had a birthday last Monday and says he was presented with a Ford.  In explanation of this he said that his daughter married Zerno Ford on that day.
Jeffrey With Bank.  Mr. Harry Jeffrey, who has been manager of the Co-Operative Grocery Company, has resigned and accepted a position with the First National Bank.  Mr. Jeffrey is a splendid clerical man and will make the First National a valuable employee.

Pulaski Boys Who Have Been Working In Akron And Other Places Laid Off Now.  Last week 25,000 employees in the various rubber plants in Akron, Ohio, were laid off.  In Detroit, Dayton, Cincinnati and other cities thousands were let out because of curtailment of expenses.  In this number were many Pulaski County boys who have been working at these places.  A warning has been sent out from all these towns that there is no employment there now and urging that those seeking work go elsewhere.  The boy on the farm had better stay right where he is at this time.  This is just a forerunner of what is coming.  Back to the farm is now the slogan, and it is a mighty good one.  You won't have to worry about losing your job.

Gov. Morrow Play Hero and Catches Burglar About To Get Away In N.Y.   New York, July 29. - Aroused by the scuffling of the guests with an alleged burglar in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel here yesterday, Governor Edwin P. Morrow of Kentucky, dashed from his room and helped to overpower the intruder, who fought desperately to escape.  Andrew Crawford, a lawyer, discovered the intruder in his room crouching at the foot of his bed early today.  He grappled with the man and called for help, bringing a score of guests to his aid.  The alleged burglar, however, escaped and was about to run into Governor Morrow's room when the Kentuckian appeared in his pajamas and grappled with the man, whom he turned over to the police.

Montgomery's Were Here.  Rev. and Mrs. W.G. Montgomery of Madisonville, spent a few hours in Somerset last weekend, arriving on the night train Thursday and leaving on No. 6 Friday for Moreland, and from there to Hustonville where he is conducting a revival.  They just dropped in to look over the lay of the land and inspect the parsonage, which will be their place of residing when they come to Somerset October 1st at which time Rev. Montgomery assumes the pastorate of the First Christian Church here.


Revival at Science Hill.  Rev. J.S. Crough will begin a series of gospel meetings at the Science Hill Christian Church on next Sunday night, August 8th.  The Science Hill congregation extend a cordial invitation to everybody to attend these meetings and a special welcome to the citizens of Somerset.


There is both a state and city law against automobiles making unnecessary noise with the cut-out open, but it is not enforced.  There is a law against speeding but we still have speeders.  North Main Street hill is used as a speedway and we would like for the police to station themselves there for one evening.  We will guarantee the Police Court will be filled the next morning.  When business gets dull just drop up on North Main Street, gentlemen.
Is there any person in Somerset who does not want better streets?  We would like for him to stand up where everybody can see him.  It takes money to make such improvements and the man who is not willing to bear his part of the expense is a mighty poor citizen.  Street improvement in Somerset can not be delayed longer.  It has been delayed too long now.


Dr. P.E. Blackerby, State Reg. of Vital Statistics, of Louisville, and Dr. A.W. Cain, Dist. Councilor of Somerset, were in Monticello Wednesday to attend the medical association.  They will return today and will meet with the Pulaski County Medical Association here.*


Flippin To Move.  The Monticello Outlook says: "Judge Walter N. Flippin and family of Somerset were here last Thursday house hunting.  Judge Flippin desires to purchase a lot and build a brick bungalow some where in the Northern part of town, preferably on North Main St., and in the meantime he desires to rent property here.  Judge Flippin moved from this place to Somerset about ten years ago. 


Move to Somerset.  The Lancaster Record has the following article about Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Pumphrey, parents of Frank Pumphrey, of the Journal office, who has just moved to Somerset: "We regret to chronicle the fact that Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Pumphrey, two of our most worthy and respected citizens, both being identified with the city for over sixty years past, are to leave Lancaster and make their future home in Somerset.  Lancaster's loss will be Somerset's gain in this case and the Record together with a host of admiring friends heartily recommend them to the people of Pulaski's capital and trust that their future home may be a happy one and that many years yet be in store for these good people."
