Jack The Peeper Calls On The Grimes Addition Tuesday Night. Great commotion prevailed in the west side of town Tuesday night caused by the report of two shot gun explosions. A man was see peeping around the summer kitchen at Oliver Tatum's and was frightened away and when he returned again about 8:30, Mr. Tatum got down the old shot gun and let her go a couple of times in the air, which frightened the would be burglar, maniac or tankful of Bedford booze, or some one after Fred Cantrells pot full of money he has hid away in the cellar under a stone on the north east corner marked with an "x." Anyway since that time all the doors in that part of town are doubly barred and nobody's "hubby" is allowed to stay down town anymore after night but if he should be a little late, he must give a pass word something like "whooptamalopilavia" before he can get in. Subscribe for The News. SALVATION ARMY "RUN IN." The Salvation army that has been holding religious services on St. corners in Bloomington every night of late, was "run in" last Saturday night in compliance with an ordinace passed by the city council. We guess the councils religion is getting a little thin during these hot summer days and they don't want to be bothered hearing about the temperature of the hereafter, especially on Thursday and Saturday nights, so passed an ordinance that no such services be held and block the streets on these nights. The religion is all right as far as it goes and reaches many people that the churches do not, but it is very trying on anyone who has some business to see to and tries to get around the square." Capt. Mitchell, the leader, was taken to jail but was released on his own recognizance and the case will be passed upon to-morrow by Mayor Malott, Miers and Miller are defending Capt. Mitchell. LEADER OF BAND TO LEAVE US J. G. Fogle Sells Restaurant The restaurant market in this town is very active, when trade gets a little slack, sell the whole thing. The trade was made Monday to Ora and Chauncey Wooden and Wm. Girtman, who will be the new proprietors. Mr. Fogle has been in the restaurant business here for several years and has made money. He, together with Geo. Gaither, Marshall Chamers, John Trisler and John Stull are going to Montana, on a prospecting tour, where the government is going to open up some new land Aug. 5th. Mr. Fogle has not yet decided definately upon a new location, if a land of "milk and honey" is not found in Montana, but will quite likely leave Smithville. To him is credited the orginazation of the Smithville Band, and has been an active lodge promoter of the Modern Woodmen, K of P and Red Men. He will be greatly missed by these organizations, especially the band. The new proprietors are hustlers and no doubt will receive the patronage of the public in their new venture. There will be an ice creem supper at Harroodsburg to-morrow night. MONON ROUTE is the best route to Chicago, LaFayette, Indianapolis and Louisville and all points North and Northwest. Solid Vestibule Trains, Dining Cars, on through day trains and Pullman Sleepers on all night train.

To The Smithville News: The article on good roads in last weeks issue of your paper should inspire every good citizen to put forth extra efforts to improve the roads at once. Especially should mail routes be looked after as the law requires. I am not a patron of a rural route, but I notice the roads on some of them are a disgrace to the community. A man that gets his mail every day and then abuses the carrier because he asks that the bad roads be repaired or his mail box properly adjusted, should be ashamed of himself. His mail service should be cut out at once, but as such men receive very little mail the punishment would be very light. The postoffice department insists on good roads on rural routes, the state law is very strict and should be enforced if officials and the public will not volunteer to do their duty for their own individual benefit as well as that of the mail carrier. If an official receives notice of defective roads he is liable to a fine of from one to twenty-five dollars for every day over five that he neglects them. In some localities patrons do extra work in order to have better roads than, their neighbors. I imagine a carrier would have a very kind feeling for such patrons. Next to the mail carrier the doctors are interested in good roads. To travel over a well graded smooth road on a dark stormy night would be more agreeable and less dangerous than over ruts mud holes and boulders. Let everybody lend a hand.—Citizen.
