Passing of Fine Sulphur Well.  With passing of this well in the courthouse yard that formerly furnished the public its water supply, we are reminded that for years and years this well was known far and wide for the excellence of its sulphur water.  However, of late years, this stream has not been utilized.  Constant shifting and resetting of the casing has resulted in loss of the sulphur stream, much to the regret of all who remember its fine water.

DECEMBER 8, 1932

Glasgow housewives have been “gypped” the last few days by fake salesmen who collect advances on stockings, books, and other acceptable gifts for Christmas.  The usual procedure is to quote attractive prices on attractive samples, take the order and cash advance, and then leave town.  The aggregate of these fake sales runs high.  So, in view of this, play safe, refuse these people, and buy your needs at home from people you can trust.

Cave City, Glasgow, and possibly half of the county is in the grip of influenza of a mild type.  The coughing, sneezing, red-eyed individual thus afflicted should be home in bed instead of scattering his germs about the streets and highways.  Rest, and plenty of it, is one of the best treatments prescribed.  So go to bed and remain there until you are well.

Co-Operation. The icy highway Tuesday resulted in several wrecks on North and South Jacksonway.  Tobacco wagons, autos and other conveyances skidded and left the road.  Interested in the market of tobacco, the State maintenance crew under Buford Wood came to the aid of growers whose wagons had skidded off the slick pavement.  Trucks pulled several wagons to market after teams had been crippled or injured.  And, while out of the usual routine of work, the maintenance crew felt justified in its labors.  Mr. Wood is commended for this cooperation.

DECEMBER 29, 1932

A rather out of the ordinary fire occurred at the home of Mr. Frank Furlong in the Beech Grove section one night last week.  Fire that destroyed a lot of wearing apparel was discovered in a dresser drawer, about the middle of the drawer.  How the fire originated is a complete mystery.  The drawer was at least 12 feet from a stove from which the fire could have started.  The only logical conclusion is that a mouse and a match started the fire which, fortunately, was discovered in time to prevent much damage.
