          Lincoln County
Lincoln County was formed in 1780, the County Seat is Stanford, Stanford was first settled in 1775 by Benjamin Logan and was first called Logan's Fort or St. Asaph. It became the county seat 1787 when it was moved from Fort Harrod, now Harrodsburg. The post office opened in 1798.

When David and I made our trip to Kentucky, one of the places we visited was the Isaac Shelby Cemetery. Imagine a tree shaded lane, peaceful and beautiful and a cemetery tucked back in the Kentucky countryside and you've discribed the area around the cemetery. Truthfully, we stopped on a whim, because I had never been there and it was David's first trip to Kentucky, but I doubt I will ever forget it.

I'll also say that I have no personal family connection to Isaac Shelby, but I thought possibly someone else would and it might be helpful. My information is limited to what I've posted here.
Isaac Shelby Cemetery State Park, named for Kentucky's first and fifth Governer Isaac Shelby, is five miles south of Danville off US 127 outside of Junction City, in Lincoln Co., KY. Isaac Shelby was buried there in the family cemetery, his home which he called Traveller's Rest, is no longer standing.

The Atlanta Georgian has the following to say of Rev. Walt Holcomb, who will begin a great meeting under the auspices of the Methodist church at the tobacco warehouse in Stanford, September 12th:
An an evangelist of note, Dr. Walt Holcomb naturally came into intimate touch with the late Rev. Samuel Jones, one of the most unique characters produced by the American platform. At the time of the death of Mr. Jones, and for many years prior to that event, Dr.Holcomb was associated with him in evangelistic work. Dr. Holcomb was the ?ographer of Jones and later married his youngest daughter. On his own merits Dr. Holcomb has risen to the front rank among evangelists of this country. One of the highest honors that has been paid him came two years ago and he was invited to make an evangelistic tour of Europe. He conducted campaigns in Bel???, Poland and Czecho-Slovakia, in each country he conducted gospel meetings that were exceptionally successful. Particularly was ?? so in the case of Czzecho-Slovakia. In many instances the crowds ??? came to hear hi were so large that it was impossible to find an aud??rium with adequate seating capacity.
Since he return from Europe, Dr. Holcomb has been constantly in demand and in differnt sections of America on account of the eagerness of so many people to hear the progress of Protestantism in Europe. It is a thrilling story and always arouses such interest.
Dr. Holcomb friends are sometimes confused as to the proper manner of addressing him. They do no kow whether to address him as Mister, Reverend, Doctor or Col. Besides having the degree of MD., he held a commission on the ?? of the laste General Lulian D. ??rr, who prior to his death during the past year was reported in press dispatches to be a rival of General John J. Pershing for the affections ?? a certain Washington society Belle, But Dr. Holcomb does not ??? much for title and honor, and says that just plain "Walt" suits him best of all.


In the home of Mrs. J. W. Hubbard (missing line) ??? celebrate her mother, Mrs. Mary ?? Hopkin's, 75th anniversary.

All of Mrs. Hopkin's children, grandchildren and great grandchildren except two grand children, Mr. Carroll Johnson, of Moreland, and Mr. C??ifford Hopkins, of Louisville, were present. Mrs. Hopkins was presented with many beautiful gifts, and was quite surprised as most relatives were out-of-town people. Guests from Louisville were: Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Hopkins, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Mller and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. R.H. Hopkins and two children, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. O'Neill and two children and Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Royalty and daughter. Others present wre Mrs. Nevius Johnson and daughter, of Moreland, and Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Johnson and daughter, of Moreland.

The following dispatch is sent from Lancaster: "Warrants for the arrest of Manford Childs and John Swords, this county, were sworn to here today by George Childs, a farmer living near Carterville, this county, who charged the men named with an attempt to assassinate him Saturday night.

The trouble is believed to be the result of a family feud, as Manford Childs is the nephew of George Childs. The warrants charge malicious shooting with intent to kill.
According to George Childs he and his family, including his wife and three children, were returning from a lodge meeting Saturday night. When they neared their home they noticed an automobile parked at the side of the road. As they passed the car they were met by a hail of bullits.....(next line missing) avoid the bullets, several of which were fired, seveing pie??ng the car. None of the occupants were struck.

Judge Ralph Gilbert, Congressman from this district, was here Monday afternoon for a while on his way to Barbourville, where he went to represent a client, who has a case in circuit court, now in session there. Asked how he felt about his election, he said: "I am feeling in the best of spirits politically. I am going to win easily and Judge Alben W. Barkley is just as sure to win as the day of the November election is to dawn. I have not seen the democrats in better shape in years, and we all must admit that hramony is an unknown quantity in Republican ranks just now." Judge Gilbert spok as if he meant what he said, and here's hoping that his every prediction will come true.


The weather was so inclement Tuesday that the Casey county fair, postponed from last week, did not begin, but on Wednesday morning the gates were opened and the fair is now in progress. Better go down tomorrow, Friday or Saturday. The Liberty fair is always an enjoyable one and it will be well worth the trip to spend a day or so there.


Sunday school Class No. 3 will have charge of the Sunday School program at Moreland next sunday, August 29, at the Christian Church.

The Danville Chamber of Commere decided to call off the Style Show for this year, which, owing to the lateness of the effort and the further fact that the Boyle County Farm Bureau could not enter into it this year, is a most wise decision.


Undertacker Jack L. Beazley was called to Middleburg Monday night by Mr. W.T. Miller, the undertaker there, to embalm the body of Chester B. Gooch, Jr., aged 14, who had been killed by a bolt of lightning. The young man, who was a son of Dr. and Mrs. C.B. Creech, was on his way to the barn to milk when his life was snapped out by electricity. He would soon have completed his high school work and he was an exceptionally bright, fine boy.

Several from Middleburg who have been here since the tragedy say that "Chester" was one of the best boys in their section and that his tragic death has caused universal sorrow in the community he lived in and where he was a general favorite. The father, mother, sisters and brothers are naturally almost heart-broken over their loss and in their great sorrow they have the sympathy in their deep grief and irreparable loss. The remains were laid to rest in the Middleburg cemetery this afternoon in the presence of one of the largest crowds that has gathered there in many years.

Judge Alben W. Barkley, Democratic nominee for U.S. Senator, is making a tour of the State of Kentucky in one of Henry Ford's flivvers and is meeting the people in their homes. It is a sensible move on the part of Judge Barkley, for there is no doubt but that he will make many friends of the people he comes in contact with. A splendid handshaker, a fine mixer, he'll know more people after the race is over than Hon. Richard P. Ernst thought there were in Kentucky. It grows more and more apparent each day that Judge Barkley is going to win his race and he is making the matter more certain by coming in close contact with the voters. "To know Judge Barkley is to admire him; to know him well is to love him," some one has remarked. We agree with the person who has thus spoken. He is a most likable man and the better we know him, the greater admirer of (rest of article is missing).

Some skunk, who ought to be doing time at Frankfort, struck Mrs. R. L. Overstreet with his car as she was returning from church at Perryville, and badly maimed her. It might have been an accident that he struck her, but it was not accidental that he hurried on and left his victim to suffer alone. Such persons should be denied the privilege of driving cars. They are worse than the "road hog," who ought to be shot before breakfast each morning.


The remains of Dr. W.C. Jasper were laid to rest in the Waynesburg cemetery this afternoon after funeral services at Double Springs Baptist church at 2:30 o'clock by Rev. J. B. Jones.

Down in Butler county early this month some moonshiners slipped through a church window and killed not only the preacher who had been conducting a revival meeting ??? denoucing their criminal trade, ??? a woman who was singing in ???? church choir also. They did not intend to kill the woman, but shes just as dead as if they had tried to kill her and thre is just as much sorrow and loss in the home.
The jury wich tried the ???? could not agree on the death penalty for the cowardly slayer. He ??? the minister in order to dicou??? interference with his criminal ??? and in order to intimidate other ???isters and the officers of the law.
The result has been not what ? expected, but that the entire crime ring of mooshiners and bootleggers in Butler county has been ???? will be, broken up. The government has taken a hand ???? matter and an under-cover ????? obtained evidence enough ??? up the ring which defied the ??? and the officals of Butler county.

If ever a murderer deserved ??? at the hands of the law this one certainly deserved it. It may have ??? that the jury was not so weak?? ???licitous about its own hides, for ??? who will murder a preacher at the pulpit will not hesitate to kill a man who sends one their kind to the electric chair. Men who ??? in backbone and courage ought to serve on juries.
Here we see another failure ??? criminal law on account of the ????ute in Kentucky which puts upon the jury the duty of fixing the pen??? for such crimes. If the jury had merely had to to say whether the defendant was guilty or not guilty, in most other states, the problem is that a judge would have sentenced this murderous crook to what he deserved, death.


The week was marked by the passing of two men, great in their particular fields of labor. One was lawyer(?) C.W. Elliot, Harvard's grand ????? man and often spoken of as "America's first citizen." He was ??? years old. The other was Rudolph Valentino, probably the worlds greatest moving picture actor in his peculiar field. He was 31 years ??? and had said to his friends that he expected to die young and that he did not want to come to old age (missing line)... than 90 years of active life. His ??? "Five Foot Shelf of Books," ???? achievement of his later years, is liberal education for the man who stuides it.
Rudolph Valentino represented all that was best and finest in the native Italian heart and mind. From a laborer at the most menial of employments, he became a movie worker at $50 a week, later rising to stardom in those parts in which he made himself famous as a lover. When he died he left an estate of about $750,000, according to eastern newspapers.
We soon shall see the spectacle of a man now dead in life on the state when Valentino's latest play, "The Son of the Shiek," is presented. But the stage will not soon see his like again, in spite of the many brilliant actors who have been enlisted by the millions spent on the movies.


During the world war the shop on with Lord Kitchener had sailed from England disappeared at sea and was never heard from afterward. A few weeks go an English newspaper man made public a statement that the general's body had been found on the coast of Norway and a coffin was duly shipped to England. When it was opened it was found to be empty and the English people generally were indignant at the hoax on such a subject.
General Kitchener had won a place in the hearts of the British people everywhere as a brave and able soldier and his loss was keenly felt. The hope of recovering his body was not abandoned for a long time, long after the people had given uphope caused heart-burnings that will not soon be forgotten.

The mystery of Kitchener's end may never be solved. While it has always been the general belief that the shop on which he sailed was a victim of German torpedo, not even that is certain. But England never will cease to revere his memory and the time never will come when the hearts of her people will not be stirred by the thought of him and his heroic end.


The continued rains have damaged Burley tobacco in some sections of the State and if they continue will damage it heavily, in the opinon of many growers, though we notice that Prof. E.J. Kinney, tobacco expert of the Kentucky College of Agriculture, says it is not much damaged yet, but advises the cutting of the crop as soon as mature enough.
Growers recall that the heavy rains of 1926 are not unlike those of 1920, when then tobacco crop was "all shot to pieces" but rust, leaf spot and wild-fire.
These rains may also be still on the side of the Burley Tobacco Grower's Con-operative Association, for, of course, serious damage to the growing crop of 1926 would enhance the value of those portions of former crops still in the hands of the association.
For the sake of our tobacco growers, we hope the damage from wet weather will not be as great as anticipated, but if it is there will be some compensation to those losers who are in the pool on account of the increased value of their present holdings which is bound to result.


"If I were given my choice of city papers of Kentucky, I would choose the Lexington Herald," remarked a gentleman in the presence of the writer the other day. And we feel like saying the same thing every time we read one of Editor Desha Breckinridge's good papers. It covers Kentucky like the dew and prints news while it is news. It's news columns are fine, its editorials are always readable and timely and the paper is all in all, all right. One of the most enjoyable things of the early morning is to read the Lexington Hearld through. Afterwards we feel pretty well posted on what's happening in Kentucky.


The voters of Casey county will be given the privilege of saying whether or not they favor issuing $200,000 in road bonds at an election set for Saturday, September 15th.

Perhaps You Can Profit By This Complaint

A complaint by one of our customers about a charge for a long ditance call may help you save money on your toll calls.
This subscriber has two boys away from home, and he calls them on the long distance telephone once a week for a friendly little chat.
Recently he waited until after 8:30 pm to place his call in order to secure the reducd night rate. Naturally he was surprised when he was billed at the person-to-person rate.
Inquiry developed the fact that he placed the call by name, looking for either one of his sons. This was, of course, a person-to-person call, for which the rate is the same, both day and night.

If this customer had told the operator he wished to make a station-to-station call, or if he had told her he wished to be connected with the distant telephone, it would have been a station-to-station call at the reduced rate.
We find that many who wait until 8:30 o'clock at night to get reduced rates are making person-to-person calls at the regular rate.
To make a station-to-station call you tell the operator the telephone number at the distant point. If you do not know the number, tell her the name or address under which it is listed. Do not ask to speak to a particular person.
We are anxious for our customers to have the benefit of the low rate for station-to-station calls and the further reduction at night.
Remember that the reduced night rate applies only to station-to-station calls.

The Money Making Dual Purpose Birds - Selected
From My Flock of 1600
Five acres with little equipment would make a fine poultry farm. This is a great opportunity for owners of small tracts to get greater returns per acre and for the amount of money invested thanthrough any other branch of agriculture, including tobacco raising with its varying and uncertain markets. Poultry raising requires no special training. Plenty of common sense applied consistently to your flocks would bring success.
