OCTOBER 6, 1933

Murderer Caught.  Will Gaines, who was indicted for the murder of Mr. and Mrs.

James Donnell of Allen County two weeks or so ago was captured at Beech Creek in Muhlenberg County and lodged in the Louisville jail for safe keeping.  This was a horrible murder and it is probable that Gaines will pay dearly for his sin.

OCTOBER 12, 1933

Epidemic of Robberies, Safe-Blowing Reported.  From reports received almost every morning now, local officers are facing one of the most serious conditions ever confronted in this city.  On Saturday and Monday nights, a total of six forced  entrances were reported and two others were attempted which apparently did not succeed.  Officers are conducting intensive investigation while the City Council ponders questions of hiring additional officers.  With winter coming on, and unemployment continuing at its present ebb, opinion has been expressed by many that very drastic steps will have to be adopted to cope with the situation.

Frank Haynes Has Leg Amputated.  Frank Haynes, about 54, deaf and otherwise afflicted, submitted to an operation Monday at the Community Hospital for removal of a leg in which gangrene had set up.  Haynes had been run over last week by a truck driven by a Tompkinsville man, who immediately took Haynes to the hospital and arranged for his treatment.  Haynes was discharged the latter part of  the week and removed to the home of relatives in the Finney section, but afterward complications arose that necessitated his return to the hospital and the subsequent operation.

To the Teachers in Barren County.  “A Barren County Teacher” appeals to all teachers in Barren County to contribute to an effort to build living quarters for Miss Lula Basham and her brother.  Their home burned last week and they lost everything they had – even the barn, five acres of tobacco, feed, and chickens.  Not one thing was saved; no insurance.  If each teacher (and any other person in this county) will give only $1.00, a room can be built in which the Bshamsa can live until she finishes her school term and can make better arrangements.

Youth  Loses Foot in Automobile Accident. Earl Etherton suffered the amputation of his right foot following injuries received to that foot and ankle, which were badly bruised and mangled last Friday night.  He was riding on the running board of a Ford coupe when it crashed into a telephone pole on South Jacksonway.  A companion, Jess Sharp, also suffered painful injuries in the same car and is confined in Community Hospital.  The driver, Nick Dodson, and his two small sons escaped injury, as did Rose Middleton and Rufus Smith, who were riding on the other running board.

Reward Offered for Harry Hoover’s Arrest.  A reward of $150 has been offered by Governor Laffoon for the arrest and delivery of Harry Hoover, who has so far evaded efforts of officers to apprehend him, following the murder of Will Poynter at Edmonton last Wednesday night.  No motive has been determined but Hoover is said to have fired point blank five times at Poynter, killing him instantly.  Poynter, a farmer, trader, and tobacco speculator, was a man of good standing in his community, and is survived by his wife and two small children.

Pedigo’s Store Sold.  Mr. Bernie Pedigo recently sold his property on the Edmonton Road to his brother, Mr. Harvey Pedigo of Metcalfe County.  Bernie and his family are moving to Indianapolis, where they will make their home.  He has been in business here for a number of years and has served his patrons so well that he will be missed by all his old friends and customers.  But we hope that his brother will be able to fill his place.

----------

Youth Accidentally Killed by Father.  Careless use of firearms was responsible for the death of Harley Humes, 13-year-old son of Clayton Humes of the Beaumont section.  Humes was cleaning and oiling his revolver when it was accidentally discharged, the bullet striking the boy in the corner of his mouth and lodging at the base of his brain.  Despite being rushed to the hospital, the boy died about two hours later.  (Submitted by Summer Shade correspondent).

Martin Smith Injured While Fighting Fire.  Martin Smith, 42-year old farmer of the Oakland vicinity, is suffering from painful burns about the eyes which may result in permanent impairment of sight as the result of a fire at his farm.  It was stated that he went into the barn Friday night after dark and struck a match so that he could see into a stall.  As he held the match above him, he accidentally ignited some hay and, in attempting to extinguish the blaze, he pulled a quantity of burning hay down into his face.  Specialists say that it will be several days before the extent of his injuries can be determined.

----------

“Buy Now.”  A great cry is being raised, amounting almost to a government demand, to “buy now” in order to scatter money.  That is mighty fine, and to many hoarders may be appropriate, but to the millions who are in debt and not able to pay their just debts, the order to “buy now” is more irritating than encouraging. How can a man “buy now” when he has nothing to buy with?

----------

Book Week by Library.  The Glasgow Public Library is planning to observe Book Week.  A campaign for books is being featured and a book review will be given, followed by a tea.  The Library Association asks its friends to be thinking about the books they can give and have them ready for pickup when the Committee calls. The slogan is “A Book from Every Home.”  The book review and tea will be given at an early date which will be announced later.

Mr. James Hollis Payne was found dead near the foot of College Street Friday morning.  A coroner’s inquest could not determine the cause of death, but no marks of violence could be found.  Mr. Payne, about 56 years old, was born and reared at Temple Hill but spent a large part of his life in Texas.  After the death of his father, he lived for a time in Booneville, Indiana, where his wife died.  After  continuing to live in Booneville three more years, he came to the home of his  uncle, Ben S. Payne at Beckton, where he lived until his death.  His remains were interred in the Payne burying ground in the Temple Hill area.

----------

Thirteen Drunks.  Mondays are nearly always a time to fine worthless characters for Sunday drunks, but Monday of this week seems to have been especially bountiful, as Judge Dickinson fined the lucky thirteen this Monday, only one of them being a Negro.
