Joe Hathaway held an accident in
surance policy in the American Ac
cident company, and this week the
adjuster arirved in Murray to com
plete a settlement with Mr. Hathaway
for the injuries he rec&ived by one of
his horses about th;e months ago.
We have been informed that the mat
ter was settled for the sum of $250.
This seems like a very small amount
for the payment of the expense and
suffering caused by Mr. Hathaway's
injuries, but owing to the conditions of
the policy it was all that he could collect.
The coffee served last Thursday was
quite well attended, despite the cold
day. There were seventeen present,
seven of whom were men. The men
folks did not bring- their sewing, but
they were there for the eats. The
next one will be given by Mrs. Min
ford and Mrs. W. G. Boedeker, on
Saturday afternoon. Saturday has
been set aside for the library and will
be called "Library Day." On this day
there will always be "something do
ing" at the library.
A number of new books have been
added to the association, and it is to
