SEPTEMBER  4, 1930

J. T. Wooten Returns for Good This Time.  Mr. J. T. Wooten, a native of Glasgow but who has tried Lexington two or three times, has finally decided Glasgow is the best place of them all, and has returned, this time he says, for keeps – to die here, he puts it.  His brother Gene says it is to live here, and Gene’s right.  J. T. is a fine painter and a good fellow generally and can again become a useful citizen.  He and his family have taken a lease on the newly erected residence of Mr. B. F. Bradford on Leslie Avenue.
Former Union Soldier Passes Away.  Mr. Wilson Bartley, of the Persimmon country in Monroe County, died Monday night at the age of about 90 years.  He was a native of the section in which he died and was a Union soldier in the Civil War.  He was a successful moneymaker and was reputed to have kept a large amount of money on his person and around the house.  A few years ago someone entered his house and relieved him of part of his holdings. As we understand, since then he has patronized the bank to a certain extent.  He is survived by several children, but telephone connection in his section is nil, and we are unable to give further details.
Mr. Steve Samson of Lamb was 82 years of age last Sunday, August 31.  In his honor a homecoming and birthday dinner was held at his residence which was attended by a large number of relatives and friends.  Those attending from Glasgow were T.J. Samson,  P. L. Samson and family, Dave Samson and family, Mrs. Mattie Smith, B. L. Dossey, and J. D. Walbert and family.  Other relatives came from Flippin, Tracy, Fountain Run, Lamb, and as far away as Illinois.
As Jack Sandidge, 18, and his brother Johnny, 14, were approaching the watermelon patch of Mr. Candor Glover of Wisdom one night last week, they were fired on by Mr. Glover.  Johnny was wounded only slightly, but Jack, quite seriously.  In fact, it has been a question whether or not he will get well, and his friends are quite anxious about him.  Mr. Glover was arrested but released on a bond of $750.00 to await the result of the shooting.
Mrs. R. A. Palmore will leave for Lexington next week, accompanied by her children, Mabel and Robert, also Misses Ethel and Mary Whitlow, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Whitlow of Old Eighty-Eight, and Lou May Word, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Word of Summer Shade.  These six friends have rented an apartment and will spend the next nine months in Lexington, the young folks attending the State University and Mrs. Palmore looking after the home, as well as acting as “mother” to the whole bunch.
One day last week, Coroner Louie Fisher found a note in his auto warning him against further investigation of the killing of Mr. Jim Edwards, which recently occurred in North Glasgow.  The note was signed “Black Hand” and told Mr. Fisher that if he did not stop the investigation, he would turn up like Mr. Edwards.  It seems to be the general belief that the note was a practical joke by some of Mr. Fisher’s friends, but it will certainly not stop any investigation which is on hand, or any lead which may develop.
Mr. E. R. Parrott, who has been proprietor of the poolroom on Washington Street, has purchased the poolroom in the Goff Building and so is czar of the poolroom business in Glasgow.  But, as far as we have heard, Mr. Parrott keeps good order, and so is a safe proprietor

Big Passenger Bus Burns on Square.  Saturday afternoon about 3:00, the crowd in Glasgow was treated to a free show – without money and without price.  One of the great passenger buses of the Consolidated Coach Company caught fire in front of the bus station on Race Street and, in a moment, a cloud of smoke arose, the fire alarm was sounded, the fire boys responded with the pumper, and there was fun aplenty.  The coach was pushed out to the middle of the street, and good progress was being made toward extinguishing the fire when the gasoline tank burst, sending gasoline into the street and gutter, and on down under cars which had been parked alongside the courthouse square.  Had it not been for quick action, the whole line of cars would have been in flames, but only one car was damaged.  By this time, the big bus was about all in – nothing left but a skeleton.

Mr. Harry Smith has been awarded the contract to remodel the Sisco Building preparatory to the coming of the J. J. Newberry Company, who is to occupy the lower floor as soon as the repairs can be made, and this will be done just as rapidly as possible.  This is one of the really big concerns of this country and you can learn all about it through “The Republican.”
Three Killed in Automobile Wreck.  Three young people were killed in an auto accident about three miles beyond Scottsville Tuesday afternoon, when the car left the pike and overturned down a hill.  The occupants, all three of whom were killed instantly, were Miss Overall, 11-year-old daughter of the proprietor of the Jacksonian Hotel, Miss Katherine Jackson, 20-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lee Jackson, and her boy friend from Illinois.  They were coming toward Scottsville at a lively gait when they rounded a hill and started down at such a rate they were unable to make a turn and went over the bank, overturning the car and killing all three.  Comment is unnecessary and seems to do no good to the next driver.
Attendance in Glasgow School is increasing.  Eleven hundred one students were in attendance on Monday – 841 in elementary and 260 in high school – a record attendance for Glasgow schools.  The physicians of Glasgow are assisting in vaccinating the students against typhoid fever.

SEPTEMBER 18, 1930

In a baseball game between Oleoak and Summer Shade on Saturday afternoon, some boys ran together with such force that Russell Matthews suffered a broken leg, and some of the other boys were considerably bruised.
Miss Tressie Ree Britt, member of Lucas 4-H Club and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Noah Britt, won 9th place in a Nation Wide Scenario writing contest which was sponsored by the Sears Roebuck Agricultural Foundation.  Miss Britt was awarded a handsome Eastman folding Kodak for her success in writing the movie scenario.  The contest was open to all 4-H members in the United States.
Special teachers are giving full time to teaching music to Glasgow school children:
Miss Gorin, Mrs. Trigg, Mrs. Boles and Miss Winn teach piano; Mrs. Rapp teaches stringed and reed instruments; Mrs. Steen teaches voice; Mrs. Shannon teaches voice and piano.  Now comes Lieutenant Ed Pedigo and, with the aid of Mr. Lee, organizes a school band.  Surely Glasgow has a standing in the field of music equal to that of any little city in Kentucky.
From Persimmon:  Mr. Grover Page of this place and Miss Ruby Grider of Turkey Neck Bend were married recently.-----Mr. Don Isenberg of this place and Miss Ada Pickerill of Tompkinsville were married in Tennessee Monday night.

At a meeting of the Kentucky Medical Association held in Bowling Green last week, our own Dr. C. C. Turner was honored by being elected Vice President of the Association, quite a distinction, but worthily bestowed, on one of the best doctors in the state.

The Kentucky Crippled Children Commission will hold a diagnostic clinic at the Community Hospital in Glasgow on October 2 for the benefit of crippled children in Allen, Barren, Hart, Cumberland, Monroe and Metcalfe counties.  Miss Imogene Merritt and Mrs. Antoinette K. Bowling, Field Workers for the Commission, have been spending several weeks in this district, urging parents to bring these children to the clinic.  They are being assisted by a Rotary Club committee consisting of Mr. T. P. Dickinson, Chairman, Tom Dickey and George Pedigo, as well as by a committee of the Junior Woman’s Club with Mrs. Joe Wells as Chairman.
