After an existence of a few days over
a mouth, the Humphrey Produce Oo.
ceased to exist last Friday and now the
general Btores are again buying all kinds
. . . 7 . f ..
of produce. The death of the concern
was due to various causes. The lnck of
a suitable place in which to carry on the
business and the unwillingness of a few
of the business men to remain in the
organization, were the prime reaeonB
for abandoning the proposition.
Mrs. Matt Gilsdorf has returned from

resigned last week to go to Columbus.
There seems to be some misunder
standing, regarding the provisions of tbe
new law which requires those who desire
to hunt and fish to take out a license.
The law was passed with tbe emergency
clause and is thus iu effect at tbe pre
sent time. It requires that all male per
sons above tbe age of eighteen years
shall take oat a license if they desire to
hunt outside of their own premise.
Tbe license can be secured at tbe office
of the county clerk and tbe fee is one
dollar for n year. Tbe penalty for bunt
ing or Ashing without a license is fine
of not to exceed fifty dollars or jail sen
tence. While driving home from chnreh Sun
day Daniel Lnndy was thrown from his
baggy and suffered a broken rib and
suffered some severe braises about
bis bead. He was driving a rather high
spirited horse and when they met a mo
torcycle tbe animal suddenly swerved
into the ditch, upsetting tbe boggy.
Miss Ruth Mendenhall, wbo was with
him, was thrown out, bat she received
only a few scratches. Mr. Lundy is
close to seventy years of age and his in
juries will be tbe more severe for that
reason, but at last reports be was getting
along satisfactorily and no serious re
sults are anticipated.
Facing two serious criminal charges,
Harry A. Erb, a young fnrruer who has
resided in this county for several years,
now lies in tbe county juil awaiting
farther developments in bis career as a
frenzied financier. The complaints
against hiiu are signed by Walter Obatu
berlin, president of the First National
bank at Clarke, and one charges him
with having secured money under false
pretenses while the other charges him
with having ottered a forged promissory
note. The ilordville State bank and the
Commercial National at Columbus are
also back of the prosecution. Mr. Erb
was arrested by Sheriff Her and was at
once placed in jail. The date of his pre
liminary hearing has not yet been set.
Arthur J. Irons committed suicide

acid. He had been drinking heavily fur
Home time and Sunday in company with
a com pan ton named Mitchell spent tbe
day at Harmony Hall in Hall county.
While there tbeir horse got away and
they were unable to locate tbe animal
until late Monday. Both were employ
ed on the O. B. Hotchkias ranch and Mr.
Irons and family lived iu a house on one
of Mr. Hotcbkies' farms. Irons had
given no warning of what he intended to
do further then to remark that "he
might as well be dead because be would
probably lose his job, anyhow' After
drinking the carbolic ucid he refused to
take any antidote, contending from the
first that the acid was weak and would
not injure him. He did not appear to
suffer much from the poison and was
conscious for ten or fifteen minutes after

Beginning with May 1 the rural letter
carriers from Monroe will count and
weigh each class of mail delivered by
them on their routes This means that
there will be considerable additional
work for the earners, as each kind of
mail must be accounted for separately.
This order applies to all rural curriers
and it is probable that the department
will use this iiifo'rnialioii in connection
with the prupoHid changes iu the con
duet of tbe post oihYe department.
At the next meeting of the board of
cducttion the matter of graduating tbe
present eleventh year class will be taken
up. Last year this class, which was
then the Tenth grade was graduated,
but later the board decided to add tbe
eleventh year and they were given an
opportunity to take the advanced work
in tbe home school. This year there has
been some talk of adding still another
year to the work here, making twelve
years in all and placing Monroe schools
on the same footing as Columbus as far
as the regular work is concerned, so
that when pupils are graduated here
their next step will be tbe state univer
sity. If this extra year is added, and it
is understood that it is favored by many
patrons and members of the school
board, there will be no graduation this
year, bnt after this there will be the re
gular exercises each year. With the ad
ded year Monroe can boast of as good a
school as any town five times its size in

The recorded death rate was 5 per

James Pokorny of Midland precinct is

two carloads at this place, one on Satur

addition he had sold a ear load a few
weeks ago and has another oar about
ready for sale. He baa now more than
four hundrepring pigs and if nothing
happens will nave more porkers to mar

bis hogs are Duroc Jerseys.
Anton Taborsky is tbe name of a man
who arrived here Monday direct from
Bohemia. He baa a son here, in the
employ of Frank Belina, and it is his in
tention for tbe remainder of the family
to come later on. Yesterday he secur
ed a job with Radolpb Bazata on bis
farm northeast of town. He was glad
of an opportunity to work and will no
doubt appreciate thegood wages that
will be paid him, which is more than
can be said for some far younger men in
this community who sby every time
there is danger of their getting a job.
There is still-plenty of opportunity for
an industrious man, and such a one will
succeed, while the human drone grum
bles and gets a living in the main by
beating his neighbors who arc foolish
enough to extend him credit. Unlike
the fresh arrival from over the sea they
do not want work.

John Armagost, of llisiog City, was
brought here in an automobile last San

down a stairway and injured one shoul

Dr. Potter examined the injured shoul

Marshal Miobener rounded up two or
three young chaps last Saturday evening
who bad been imbibing rather too freely
of something much stronger than pop or

These young men are mistaken if they
think the record tbey are making will

As a rule, when youug men strike out

A Kentucky Forest Monarch.
When the War of the' Revolution
was being fought there stood on the
farm owned by Pieman -Harris a red
oak which had attained the age of 34
years. For 136 years following, or un
til last week, to be exact, this same
tree was monarch of the forest In
Simpson county. Measuring five feet
In diameter at the base when felled
and" worked Into wood It yielded ten
cords. It was necessary to use dyna
mite In the process, halt a stick be
ing exploded in each cut of eight feet.
The destruction of this mammoth
oak. unquestionably the last of its
kind In southern. If not in all Ken
tucky, removes doubtless the oldest
tree In Simpson county, and at the
same time serves to remind the peo
ple that the forests In this section are
disappearing as did Poor Lo, the orig
inal possessor, and unless some ac
tion looking toward conservation is
speedily set in motion there will not
be timber enough left In southern
Kentucky to stock a hoe. Franklin
