The Somerset Journal-The Oldest Democratic Newspaper in the Mountains of Kentucky
following article is taken from the Rankin (Ill.) News. Mr.
McBeath was a former Pulaskian and a brother-in-law of Nellie McBeath, one of
the Journal's correspondents. "Thomas McBath, a workman on the "rip" track
in the L.E. & W. yards, while at work under a car Thursday afternoon was
struck and dragged under the car, when the switch engine set in a car on that
track. Mr. McBath was brought to Dr. Liggitt's office where medical aid was
given but owing to the seriousness of his injuries, he died about four
o'clock in the doctor's office. An inquest was held in Rankin, Friday noon,
and the witnesses testified that he was at work under the care when it was
struck. After hearing the testimony the jury returned a verdict of death due
to injuries sustained when he was run over by a cut of cars on the "rip"
track of the Lake Erie & Western railway. Brief funeral services were held
in Rankin Saturday morning after which the body was taken to Oxford, Ind.,
for burial. The following obituary was read by Rev. Wicks: Obituary.
William Thomas McBath was born in Wayne Co., Ky., Feb. 24, 1868, and was
called suddenly to the life beyond from his late home in Rankin, Ill., Sept.
2, 1920, aged 51 years and 6 months, and 8 days. He was united in marriage
to Dora Morris, Dec. 22, 1894, in Texas. His wife preceded him in death,
leaving a family of small children. He was married the second time, Oct. 5,
1905, to Pauline Johnson. To this union 5 children were born. An infant was
born only a few hours before the father was called into the world beyond.
The names of the surviving children are respectively, Leonard McBeth and
Della Gilbert of Oxford, Ind., Seth of Templeton, Ind., Donnie of Templeton,
Floyd, Lorine, Evelyn, Edna and baby with the wife and mother all of Rankin,
Ill., are left to mourn. Mr. McBath was highly respected by his large circle
of friends in Rankin. He was held in high esteem by the Railroad Officials
and the men of the shops where he was employed and the fatal accident has
caused a gloom over he entire community. He was a devoted husband, and
affectionate father and a true friend. The grief stricken wife and children
have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.
Jesse Mershon Dies of His Injuries. Mr. Jesse Mershon, who was injured by
being run over by an auto truck a week ago, died at his home at Bryantsville,
Friday night, and was buried at Lancaster Sunday afternoon after services at
the Presbyterian Church by Dr. E.M. Green, of Danville. Members of the
Masons of which order he was a member officiated at the grave. Mr. Mershon
lived in this county many years and moved to Corbin soon after that place
became a railroad center. He was a brother of Mr. John B. Mershon, formerly
of Stanford but now residing at Somerset. He married Miss Eliza Kennedy, the
only daughter of the late Grove Kennedy, and she and one son, Mr. Will
Mershon of Winchester survive the good man. Mr. Mershon was about 60 years
old and was a splendid man in every way. He had recently bought property at
Bryantsville, where his brother-in-law, Mr. Ben Kennedy and family live.

Miscellaneous Shower. The following is taken from a Newark, N.J., paper and
will be read with interest here: "A surprise miscellaneous shower was given
on Sept. 11th, in honor of Mrs. Walter E. Winfrey, formerly Miss Blanche I.
Bond, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank P. Bond of 13 Myrtle
Ave., Roseville Section. The home was beautifully decorated the color scheme
being carried out in pink and white. Many beautiful gifts were received and
each was attractively arranged with white ribbon which formed a spray coming
from a flower watering pot. Refreshments were served and Miss Eleanor
Peterson entertained during the evening. Mr. Frank P. Bond, formerly of
Haley and Bond, rendered selections of many musical instruments that he used
when in the theatrical business. Those who attended were Misses Eleanor

Ave., Roseville Section.
Worth A Thought. A dispatch from Washington reads as follows: "The
Republican National Committee is doing one thing that never has been
attempted heretofore. It is organizing a battery of colored women, who are
to travel through the States of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and
possibly a few other hotly contested regions, and preach Republicanism to the
colored voters, especially the colored females. So far about fifteen colored
women have been signed up for the campaign. The Evening Post will observe
the results of this political experiment with considerable interest -
Of the 17,981 disabled former soldiers being cared for in more than 1,000
hospitals under supervision of the war risk bureau, 9,858 are in private
hospitals, including state and county sanitariums, and 8,128 are in hospitals
only partly controlled by the government.
Of the 470,000 men originally classed as deserters by the War Dept., closer
observation and investigation narrowed this number down to 173,911.
