F. Bennett received his automobile yesterday morning. It is something on the style of a buggy and is very practical for this country. The Gentry shows have returned to Bloomington for the winter. Thev had good success and shewed in nearly all the towns of importance in the west half of the United States. Mr. Huffman has moved his meat shop to the Joe [missing text] building at Sanders and [missing text] & Zike have moved their meat shop into the room in the K. of P. building, vacated by Huffman. Earle, the two year old son of Mr and Mrs. Sam Zike, fell from a second story window last Saturday, and broke his leg, just below the hip. Dr. Jackson was called and set the fracture, and the little fellow is getting along nicely. There is a vast difference in the crack shots that come from the cities, who can shoot a target pigeon on the wing and killing quail. Every season the sports come down with their $100.00 guns, but most generalty they have to get some old farmer, with his muzzle loader, to kill the game for him to take back and give out to his friends and say "O I just couldn't miss them," and never a word would he say about the old farmer. When a bunch comes to Harrodsburg, they always hunt up Isaac Dixon and take him out with them, and when they get tired shooting up the atmosphere, hand him a gun and he gets the game for them. He is considered the best hunter in this part of the country and when a covey of quail gets up he generally gets all of them in as many shots. A joyful surprise was given in honor of Edgar Deckard at his home, Friday evening Nov. 12th, which a number of his most intimate friends attended. Refreshments of various kinds were served in the dining room which was decorated with vines. The evening was spent in many jolly games. Those present were: Misses Cecil and Ola Botkin, Lillie Pate, Daisy Deckard, Arra and May Wooden and Maud Sylvester. Messrs Fred Trisler Grover and Everett Shields, Frank Zike, Harvey Crowell, Delia East, Carl Frantz and Carnie Boruff. All departed at a late hour wishing him many more enjoyable birthdays, happy dreams, and a pleasant goodnight. While J. G. Fogle and Marshall Chambers were in San Franciso, they accidently ran across Charley Duncan, who was thought to be dead. He disappeared from Bedford several years ago and the last heard from him was at New York. Several New York newspapers published an account of the death of a man by the name of Charles Duncan and it was thought to have been him by his relatives. Mr. Duncan has a wife and six children at Bedford. It has been suggested by several to change the road running around by the Christian church and the overhead bridge, so that it will extend through town. The overhead bridge is not a very safe crossing and the change would greatly benefit the town.
