Literally speaking, the Sanders boys shot np the town Tuesday night. The schools gave a "pie supper" that night and the Sanders boys were there in full force and enjoyed themselves immensely, having everything their own way. GOOD NEWS. It is stated that the Olivers are going to open up no. 18 quarry again soon, and the Bloomington Southern is to extend their road down in this stone district. The quarries are much encouraged with their present business and have great expectations for 1910. So all we have to do, to make things boom is to get busy. SHAME! On The Boys Who Threw Rotten Eggs. Shame! on the boys who threw rotten eggs into a crowd of young people from Harrodsburg Saturday night A crowd of five couples came up to attend the W. C. T. U. supper, and were having a merry time until they were returning home and had gotten as far as Paris Trisler's place, a number of boys were hid behind the fence and began throwing rotten eggs into the crowd striking and ruining their clothing, besides the awful odor that was impossible to rid themselves of. Stull Bros, had shipped some eggs and some of them had been returned, and were set outside, that is how they got rotten eggs. There is much local sentiment against the boys who threw the eggs and an effort will be made to find the guilty parties and have them prosecuted, which is a penitentaty offense. The people at Harrodsburg are very indignant over the matter and the boys at that place to get even. The trouble will be that some innocent parties will have to suffer for the work of four or five boys. Throwing eggs into a crowd from some other town is something that should be stopped and it should be the duty of the citizens to see that it is stopped. It used to be that young folks from Bloomington would come down and spend their money here, but the boys egged them until they quit coming. The Clear Creek folks also were egged scandalously last summer. The boys won't let a single wagon load of young folks come to town without egging them as they leave if it is after night. It should be that when any one comes from a neighboring town, to treat them with the highest courtsey so that they would come again. NEW ENTERPRISE, Ladies Will Open Restaurant Mrs. Mollie Cantrell and Mrs. Cora Fox have leased the room in the stone building and and are going to open up a first class restaurant and keep good things to eat, that only such good cooks can prepare. Having a restaurant in both ends of town will make it more convenient for the public and these ladies certainly deserve a liberal patronage.

The writer can remember that any one who burnt coal in this town was considered extravagant and a car of coal to be set on the siding here was something awful. Now there has been no less than 20 cars unloaded here this fall and more being set in every day or two. Anyone that burns wood now belongs to the 400. Silas Wisley and wife went to Gosport this morning no a short visit with Ol Bean.
