Work is progressing on the extension to Trimble County Water District No. 1. While waiting for results of a right-of-way quandary on Mount Pleasant, the crew of United Pipe Company is digging on Sulphur Road. They have been experiencing a lot of difficulty due to rock. To lay the water lines the required 30 inches deep, the crewmen have blasted through rock to lay the three- and four-inch mains. Work will be progressing as rapidly as possible down New Hope Road, down Leeport and other areas. Tom Ralston, commission Chairman, said the funds would be coming from FmHA.

The suit to collect past-due taxes on the Milton-Madison Bridge, which has been pending in the Circuit Courts of the county since the gubernatorial campaign of Keen Johnson, was given a formal hearing at the present term of court in closed chambers before Judge Chas. C. Marshall, during this term of Circuit court. Efforts on the part of the prosecuting attorney Eugene Mosley to bring this case to a hearing have met with repeated failure. The question as to whether the case could be tried in the Trimble Circuit Court has frustrated all efforts to bring the case to a head. At this term of court, following several hours of argumentation by attorneys for the Madison Bridge Company and others, and Mr. Mosley, Judge Marshall ruled he had jurisdiction over the proceedings. A motion by Attorney Mosley to continue the case to another term of court was heard and granted by the bench. Litigation on the question will continue until the claim of the county has been settled to some satisfaction.
The TCHS Demons, after getting away to a bad start in the second half of their season following the holidays, have again apparently hit their stride and this week have captured two straight conference games. On Friday night of last week the dangerous quintet from Campbellsburg pounced and beat the Demons in the final frame by 38-29. But the Demons began their comeback on Saturday night when they went to Sulphur and took a neat victory to the tune of 30 to 21, and Tuesday night they went over to Eminence and came back home on the long end of a score of 15-14.
Deaths: Robert C. Terrell, 56, Lexington, organizer of the Highway Department of Kentucky in 1912; Mrs. Kat Austin, 85, Bedford; James Chatham 83, Corn Creek; Jerry Fox 82, Milton.

Speaking of streetlights for Bedford, Mr. Robt. C. Terrell, of Terrell Bros., is a pioneer in the cause. He has rigged up a light at the West street side of the establishment and the street is well lighted for some distance each way all night long. More power to Mr. Terrell and here’s hoping some way will be worked out soon for all of Bedford’s streets to be lighted.
Mr. Chas. McCraw, owner of Hilltop Farm, one of Trimble county’s showplaces, in discussing the proposed streetlights plan for Bedford Monday, stated that he would be glad to maintain one of the lights. That is a splendid spirit and typical of Mr. McCraw’s interest in the welfare of Trimble, which he has adopted as his home. We can’t have too many men like Mr. Charlie.
Early Monday morning when Geo. Elias, manager of the Kroger Store at South Ft. Mitchell, Ky., opened the store, he was held up by a man at the point of a revolver, robbed of $127 and locked in the refrigerator. (Taken from the Walton Advertiser.)
Deaths: Charles Clifford, 82, LaGrange, formerly of Trimble County; Nancy Ann Wise Robinson, 58, Madison, formerly of Trimble County.
