In any progressive move for the town and community Will Woodford could always be counted on. During the war this community was one of the most active in the United States. He was one of the most active ones as no meeting was held at which he was not present and no move for the community was ever started without he was taken in and could always ha counted on to do his part of the work and pay his part of tlie necessary expense incurred. He was greatly missed whea he went aWay but whep bis death was announced Monday the loss was felt more than ever. His as-sóciates knew then for sure that he would never again be with them with the cheerful ‘^’m in.” He was a man of strict honor who could always bte depended on for the right. He bad a vision of the better things of life and of a broad community where all would work together in harmony for the up-lifting of humanity and the growth of the community. The booater element of the community will miss him mors than any others. But his memory will always be aplMuant one. And may bis example be a. beacon light to others that wiM help them to the richer, Jbet-ter things of life and service. Word has been received here of the death of Art L. Edwards in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Mr. Edwards lived in Petersburg for a number of years. He was a photographer and is remembered by many people over the county.

Bement the oil man for a one-sixteenth part of what he is supposed to have received for a one^half interest in certain oil property holdings in this county. The sum of money she asks for is $37.000.00. Mrs. Herseman claims to be endowed with bypnoetic powers and that she contracted with Bement to use such powers and did use them in locating certain leases which proved to be good but that Bement has never paid her as he contracted. In the complaint Mrs. Herseman claims that she has hypcoetic influence over Horace S. Willey of ML Carmel, and that she can put Wiley in a trance and while under her influence he divulges 'things beyond the human eye and that on July 15 1917, Mr. Bement whh was then operating for oil in Pike county came to her for information and that she hypnotised Willey and while Willey was under her power be told Bement that oil would be found on the Doug Barker, Pearl Barker, Burkhart, Willis Chew and Rumble leases and that Bement prospected these oil wells and that the Central Refining company paid him $600,000 for oil pr^erty that included the leaees named by Willey while in a trance.

The funeral service was held Friday at the Lemond church. The funeral was in charge of the Ireland Lodge of Masons of which he was a member Who does not dread the visitor who starts, then thinks of something else to say ; rises and then thinks of another subject of conversation ; nearly reaches the door, and then has another revelation ; reaches the door, and most prob-ably holding it open, is aroused to a dergee of mental brilliancy that lets in fifty flies per minute. What a tax on the patience and politeness of the listener, who vainly strives, by asserting instantly to every proposition to end the interview and break the restraining bond of polite attention.

And it was probably the most interesting game ever staged there cording to the ball fans, was here two weeks ac- Plainville ago when they played the locals a tie game in 10 in-nings. When it was announced that they were to be here Sunday, ball fans for miles made up their minds to be here. When time to start the game arrived.. Spradlin the Winslow pitcher had not put in an appearance. Another man was picked up, Graham of Peters-burg. But he was a good one. At the end of the second inning the visitors had three runs with Winslow none. In the fifth Winslow secured one rum It was blank for both sides until the eighth when Winslow ran in four more runs. The game ended in the ninth with the visitors retaining the 3 against the locals 5. It was game, interesting from the very ¡tart. Those Pike county sports who put their money against the Winslow team are a sadder but wiser lot John Loveless and famliy were ííT turning from Oakland City Thursday runs a great Andrew Carnegie is dead. ^Tbe country lost much in his death. Starting out in life as a messenger boy he accumulated a fortune. At the age of 65 he started to give it away. He had a feeing that it was wrong to go on ac.cumulating idle naillions ao he began to give away his wealth at the rate of twenty millions each year. He has established libraries all over the country and has accomplished a world of good with his money. His wealth was a result of his own efforts. His father died when he was a very small boy leaving him the breadwinner for his widowed mother. The country will miss Andrew Carnegie but his good work will go on throughout the ages. He certainly made the world better for having lived in it. The state highway commission spent Monday and Tuesday in Pike county. A road meeting was held in Petersburg Monday afternoon. The commission went over the road from Vipcennes to Petersburg, from Peterbsurg to W^ins-low thence to Princeton by Oakland City and spent Monday night. Tuesday morning the commission went from Princeton to Oakland City where a meeting was held, thence through Winslow to Jasper. Prom Jasper they came back through here and went to Boonville. The commission is out viewing the bfBt route for the state highway. Tiiey are being suggeateif to from people of almost every commnn-tiy, each community endeavoring to get a piece of state road for its own use. Every fellow has been accuaidg the other fellow of working against him in hia efforts to get a piece of the state highway for his own particular use. A certain community has been working some other communities with all the power its citizens poaa^sa to tell a Btory of how some other community is working them in order to get that commuuity’B support for another projecL MaiuL automobileB have been following the copmiiaion party about but what good baa been or will be accomplished we are at a loss to know. After the varioua routes are gone over we are of the opinien the commiasion will lay oúit the roads at that body sees the neede of the people will be beat, ■opplied. At least that is whet they •hoald do, eod all the advice they have Vveeived wRI go in at one ear and oat a«t the oSier. ' The people of Pike county are not feeling just right over the new court house deal handed them last week when few fellows around Petersburg worked up a deal by which the county council will be asked to appropriate $250.000 00 to build a new court house in Petersburg. There was no demand from the people for a new court house. The present structure is sufficient for our needs and is on a par with our fi-nancia! Circumstances. There was no agitation for a new court house. Two county commissioners \yere used as tools to do the bidding ot a self ap-pointed steering committee to get a' new building for Petersburg. Even the president of the board of commissioners did not know such a thing was contemplated. It is hinted that several deals were pulled in order that the appropriation may be made by the members of the county council. Do the people of Pike county like to have their affairs bartered by a few designing men that Petersburg may get a new court house? Then, is this a good time to build a new building, when all kinds of material and labor is the highest ever known? The proposed $260,000.00 will be only a starter when we go to build a new court house. The Petersburg papen, knowing the underhanded methods used against the taxpayers to run up a large debt on them, touched the matter of building • the new court house very lightly and mentioned it as little as possible in their, issues of last week. The matter being sent to the city papers from Petersburg telling that Petersburg is a town of 4,000 peo-pie and such other misstatements of facts is calculated to help along in the deal. Are the people of Pike county ready to assume the debt proposed in the erection of a eonrt house? Ifem-here of the steering committee who used the county commissioners, are saying that^the people cannot help themMlves. One of the members said to a man Monday when appx^>acbed on the Bubjeet, “What can you do about it?” Well, If the people want to, they can do something about it before the Qounty council meato In Bepteraher. It's up to the people to agy whether they will stand for such metlKKb. afternoon late, their car was overturned in Ayrshire. Mrs. Loveless was thrown from the car and sustained a broken hip. In the car were Mr. and Mrs. Loveless and grandchild while Dewey Loveless was drivng. As they were coming down the level stretch of road near the Ayrshire school house the car was overturned, just how has not been figured out as the road is level. The baby was thrown out and was uninjured. The others • were ■erstcbed up some but none seriously hurt except Mrs. Loveless whose thigh was broken. She was brought home where she was given medical attention and is getting along very nicely. William T. Woodford died Monday morning in Colorado Springs, Colorado where, he went early in May in the hope of regaining his health. For the past three weeks he had been gradually going ^wn. While his many friends felt that the trip west could hold but very little encouragement for him, the announcement of his death cast a gloom over the entire community. His health had been failing for the past three years. He had a spell of typhoid fever which lasted thtough many weeks. After he recovered he did not seem to gain the strength and vigor. Last winter he contracted influenza from which he seemed to get well but hia general constitution began to go down from then on. He visited specialiato in many parts of the country but did not get relief when be was advised to try Colorado. ^On May 7th in company with his brother H^rry he left here for the west. His wife and children followed as soon as she could get the bua-iness affairs here in condition to lea ve and were with him at the time of hia death. Winslow community lost a good man and citizen in Will . Woodford*» going away. He was bom here June 10, 1887, being 82 years old last June. This has been bis home practically all his life. November 5, 1907 he married Beulah Powell. To them were bom two children who with the widow survive. Surviving also is the father, Frank T. Wooford.two brothers. Harry and Charley and a sister. Mary. The entire community mourns his death. He was a born business man.a grocery-' man. He went to work in his father's grocery when but a HtUe boy. He liked people and by his open, honest manner of doing business soon won all. with whom he came in contact. When his father retired from the business be took it over and built one of the finest buaineases ever known in this town. He wda a chriatian gentleman, a member of the Methodist church.
