Fox Ridge--People on the Ridge are finishing laying by corn.  Miss Rada Gross has been visiting Mrs. Stella Hambrink of Rosiclare the past week.  Several of the people from on the Ridge attended the Sunday School Convention and report a grand time was had.  We take particular notice that John Ginger has been going down Fox Hollow so often.  Wonder what the attraction is?  James B. Ginger made a flying trip to Evansville last week.  Several of the people from on the Ridge attended the ice cream supper at Milo Jones' Saturday night and report a very nice time.  Thurston Patton and family spent Sunday with Mrs. Patton's parents, Rufus Reed and family.  Bert Ingram purchased a bunch of hogs from Clarence Love one day last week.  SHAKY

Tower Rock--We were glad to see the rain which fell today (Monday).  Mrs. Josie McFall and son were guests of Mrs. Wallace Sunday.  Ed Wall made a business trip to his farm Monday.  Homer Porter and family were guests of her mother, Mrs. Belt, Sunday.  Mrs. Jonas Riley was the guest of Mrs. Mattie Hurford Sunday.  C. L. Humphrey, wife and daughter, Mildred, were guests of Allen Belt and family Sunday.  Miss Metta Frailey was a guest of Addie Riley Sunday night.  Walter Smith and family were the guests of Mrs. Ruthy Boyd from Sunday until Monday.  Mrs. C. L. Humphrey and family visited Ed Humphrey and family of Tolu, Ky., from Thursday until Saturday.

Karbers Ridge--Remember Bro. Clayton's appointment here next Sunday afternoon at 2:30.  Rev. A. A. Ferrell and family of Ridgeway visited in the county a few days last week.  Mrs. J. W. Waggoner will leave the first of the week for Chicago where she will visit her sister and children.  Mrs. Fred Giintert and children of Eldorado are here visiting old time friends and relatives.  Charley Pilot was shot in the breast one day last week by some unknown party, his would don't seem to be serious.  Mrs. Etta Williaims and children of Eldorado are here taking a vacation with her mother, Mrs. Sarah Shipp, and other relatives and friends in the county.

Items from Anywhere--J. G. Gullett lost a fine lot of clover hay, and some timothy hap, during the late big rain.  We were glad to meet and greet Dr. Joel Hart here last week, who is now located at Karbers Ridge.  We had not seen him for several years.  Dr. Everette Knight and a Miss Bell, a trained nurse from Indianapolis, Ind., were guests of Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Rose Tuesday of last week.  E. A. Knight and wife of Rosiclare, accompanied by Mrs. Knight's parent, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wood of West Frankfort, Ill., drove up Sunday afternoon and made our folks a pleasant brief call.  Mrs. Belle Holbrook and two youngest children, accompanied Rev. Oscar Weaver and wife to church in Kentucky, opposite Metropolis, Ill, last Sunday.  Otto Holbrook, who is at work for the Bridge Co. at Karnak, Ill., met them there and saw his wife and babies.  An old time friend, Elbert Dossett who is here from California called to see us last week, but we happened to be out in town and failed to see him then or later, to our regret.  He is a brother to the late Ile F. and George Dossett of the upper end of this county and formerly lived there himself.  Mrs. Edw. Ferrell of Rosiclare and children, Julian and Miss Mildred, and Mrs. Harland Inman of Herrin, Ill., were guests of Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Pritchard Wednesday of last week.  Asa Reynolds and wife and J. A. Love and family, and perhaps others from here, attended the S. S. convention at Rock Creek last Sunday.
