Women Jurors.  Monroe County is known as a progressive community and, to keep up their reputation, the jury commissioners summoned both men and women for the April term of Circuit Court.  Ladies drawn for the grand jury were Mrs. Annie Richardson, Mrs. Thomas Chappell and Mrs. Bertha Swann. 
Judge Henry R. Price, of Metcalfe County, dropped dead of heart trouble while teaching a Sunday School class at the Methodist Church at Sulphur Well, where he lived.  He was sixty-odd years of age and was a very prominent citizen of his county, having served as County Judge, and was held in high esteem by a host of friends.  He is survived by his wife, the former Miss Olga Neal.
A congressional delegation plans an inspection tour of the Mammoth Cave section on April 15 and 16, and playing host to them will be a committee composed of the following members:  Max B. Nahm, of Bowling Green; Robert J. Ball, Blakey Helm, Eugene Stuart and W. W. Thompson, all of Louisville; A. E. Ely, Glasgow; H. Carmichael, of Kyrock; Judge Osso Stanley, of Bardstown; and Otis Mather of Hodgenville.  The Congressional party will also visit Lincoln Farm during their sojourn in Kentucky.

Car Stolen.  Last Saturday Captain A. E. Ely bought a new Chrysler Six machine and, Johnny on the spot, had it insured.  Monday night he drove to his store, parked out front, and before he returned to start home, the car was driven off .  It was found the next day in Nashville and officers there notified him; the next day they brought the car back to Captain Ely, the insurance company paying all costs.
Through the efforts of members of the local Methodist Church, assisted by citizens of that section, the Morrison Tabernacle is being repaired.  The tabernacle has been covered and is being enclosed with side walls, besides other needed repairs.  The work of beautifying the grounds will come next.
Jacksonway Leased by the Spotswood.  The Jacksonway Hotel, at the corner of Front and Race Streets, which has been tossed back and forth from hawk to buzzard for several years, has been leased to the Spotswood Hotel Company and is to be newly painted, papered, furnished with hot and cold water in every room, and made attractive to the traveling public.  And, too, a kitchen and dining room are to be provided, same as in all regular hotels; in fact, it is to be converted into a fully equipped hotel, all run on the European plan.  This will add greatly to the hotel service for Glasgow.
The Macedonian Baptist Church, of Barren River Association, will be dedicated May 3, 1931.  The speaker of the morning will be the Rev. W. D. Powell, D.D.,  presently Field Secretary of the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptists located in Richmond, Virginia.  For a number of years, he was a missionary in   Mexico.  This church will be the 732nd that he has dedicated, those churches having been located from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.  Everyone within reach should surely be present to hear Dr. Powell’s address.  The service starts at 10:00, and a basket dinner will be served on the grounds.
AD.  A Buick 8 through and through with Torque tube drive for exceptional roada- bility, the new Buick 8 is remarkably steady and easy to keep on the road, mainly because of the Torque tube drive, which transmits the drive power direct to the frame and keeps the wheels in positive alignment.  $1,025.  Glasgow Buick, Inc.

Modern Travel – How Wonderful.  For instance, your servants, Will Combs, Albert Boyd, Ed Kerley and others left Glasgow after broad daylight Tuesday morning, reached Frankfort by 9:00 o’clock, remained seven and one-half hours, stopped on the way home to leisurely eat supper, and were back in Glasgow by 9:00 p.m. – no waiting for railroad schedules or even bus schedules, and without a down tire or any other mishap along the way.  How wonderful is modern travel!
Glasgow Has New Landscape Artist.  The quotation “a prophet is not without honor save in his own country” not only applies to prophets but to every walk of life.  Glasgow has an artist of which little has been known, who is fast forging her way upwards in her work.  We refer to Miss Grace Pedigo, who has recently completed a painting that might have been done by some of the old masters.  Miss Grace’s latest painting is 8’ x 8’ and is the artist’s conception of a river with sun- light filtering through the trees along its banks, giving a restful look that instantly meets with your approval and causes you to look again.  We expect this young artist to rise in the art world with a reputation of which we will all be proud.
Bernice, the little two-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Oliver of Freedom, has recovered from scarlet fever, but he was left with an abscess in the head.  He was brought to town Sunday and that night was operated on at the Community Hospital by Dr. Follis.  By Tuesday he was recovered enough to be taken home. 
Fire from an undetermined origin burned the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Sharp on Columbia Avenue Sunday morning shortly after one o’clock.  The family was in Louisville at the time and knew nothing of the fire until notified by relatives.  Practically all the contents were burned or badly damaged, and the house is beyond repair.  An incident in connection with the fire was the fact that Bobbie, the seven-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Sharp, had been saving money for a number of years in a small savings bank.  When he returned home and relatives and friends began sympathizing with him over his loss, he said “I didn’t lose my money, I carried it with me.” Sure enough, Bobbie had placed his bank in the car just before leaving home.

Lerman Bros. has grand opening celebration sale beginning Thursday, April 16.  To all of Glasgow, this sale says in a friendly and worthwhile way…HOWDY.

It marks the beginning of a new era in Glasgow retailing and emphasizes the Lerman policy of low operating expense, Big Volume, friendly service and good quality to Keep Prices Down.  Some of the bargains:  Big bath towels, 10 cents each;  Damask bed spreads, 98 cents each;  Men’s blue work shirts, 29 cents; Ladies’ new spring hats, $1.98 each;  Women’s dresses, $2.98 to $8.75;  and Children’s shoes,  98 cents to $1.98.

Where They Teach, 1931-1932.  The Barren County Board of Education has employed  next year’s teachers, provided they meet the required salary schedule, certification of qualification, and a health certificate.  Following is a partial list of those teachers and the schools for which they are employed: Allen School, Paul Allen;  Beckton, Mae Dillingham;  Beech Grove, George Waller;  Bethel, Oren Doyle and Elizabeth Ann Ebert;  Bon Ayr, Lela Neagle;  Clear Point, Perrin Edwards;  Goodnight, Elizabeth Allen;  Game, Christine Hoover;  Mount Ayr, Marcus Allen; Sinking Spring, Beulah Grooms;  Winn, Jeanette Conkin;  and Wolf Island, Mary Lucy Spencer.
Miss Christine Jones, the 22-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.D. Jones, is now in David Lipscomb College in Nashville, where she is teaching and also taking her final course in the school, where she will graduate around the first of June.  She will then spend a month or so at home before sailing from San Francisco with a company of missionaries for Japan, where she has engaged to teach the English language to the children of the missionaries.
Mr. Billie Dougherty, about forty years of age, was cut, bruised and badly shaken up Saturday night when his car struck a telephone pole between Dugantown and Lecta on the Edmonton Highway.  According to his version of the accident, he met a truck coming toward Glasgow that was running on the wrong side of the road.  In order to miss the truck, he pulled to the left and, in doing so, pulled too far, wrecking his car and cutting the telephone pole in two.  Passing motorists brought him to Glasgow, where he received medical treatment. 

Last Thursday at a meeting of the State Highway Commission, Chairman Johnson moved to dismiss Mr. H. D. Palmore, Chief Engineer of the Commission, for no other reason than that he is a Republican.  Only one other member supported Mr. Johnson, the other six voting to retain the best road engineer in the state, one who has the whole road situation at his finger tips, and who is absolutely straight.  It would have been a dirty shame for Mr. Johnson’s dirty motion to have carried; the six members who stood for the right deserve the thanks of the entire State.
From Lamb.  Mrs. Annie Tinsley, who has been confined to her bed for three years with a broken hip, is much improved and expects soon to be able to sit in her new wheel chair which was a present from her friends.-----Clarence Proffitt and Jack Williams spent the week end with Rex Proffitt in Bowling Green.-----Amye Jones spent one day last week with her sister, Mrs. Alma Thomas.
