Loveless of Petersburg has invented a demountable automobile rim which reqiures but one bolt to hold the rim in place.

Loveless, Harry , Carpenter, Frank Ely and Dr. S. R. Clark. The new appliance looks like a winner. The new company is capitalized for $100,00<k00. aften There is a certain degree of madness which we can feel on only one occs-•ioir. Perhaps that same degree of ill-temper is felt by the motorist who happens to be caught out in a car without a self-starter when the engine ‘goes dead” in the midst of a miniatura lake. Só much to explain the degree of our feeling. This pet peeve is to go ioyrn the street and hear some who \xever gave a dollar to the eommunity, who never gave anything to improvements but a wet blmiket, ^oUgizing to some stranger for this town, when if be only knew the troth «bmt it, the town has been apoltgizing foe hito for tbe last ten years, and jwitly too.

Goodloe of Winnipeg, Canida, is the purchaser The store will continue to run under the Cooper name for the present Mr. Goodloe comes to Winslow highly recommended as a business man the community will be proud of and will maintain the high standard set for this store in years gone by. What Mr. Cooper will do he has not decided. He is a good hardware man and has conducted a business tbe public could at all times rely upon. Always honorable in every deal he has built an immense trade that any man might well be prqud of. Charley Cooper will remain with the new proprietor which will be good news to all the store’s customers. Our best wishes is extended to both the old and new proprietors.    y/ Winslow lost the feeble minded institute for which 80 much effort was expended. Tbe prize will go either to Jennings. Lawrence or Warrick county. The land this community had gathered together to offer tbe commission appointed by the Governor to select a site consisted of 2,000 acres just north of town, every foot of which is underlaid with coal. The land was optioned at an average of $51 per acre. The commission made two trips here to look the site over but part of t^ members were not impressed with it. One objection and another was offered against the site. In general they thought the land tVXs too high for what it appeared to be. They thought good coal land should be purchased for about half the money. Some of the la|»d offered waa optioned too high but it waa the fault of the owners of the lairi who refused to go in at any smaller figure. But to^the loyal men who put up their money, time and every pound of energy they bad in an effort to land it, the community owes much. Thw wasted their time freely and made many trips during buainesX^ hours and i in the night in an effort to got the land together. The only regret ie tha knocks thet accompanied the effcwt ffom • certain part of the county under the guise of helping to aave the y for us. But it is only another loet fight for the men who made an effort to benefit the community.
