DEATH: Mrs. Rebecca Mink, of the Skeggs Creek section died Wednesday after an illness of several days. We were unable to learn the cause of her illness.

The Mt Vernon baseball team has a challenge from Green Nebraska Indians. It is likely that they will arrange a game with the Indians here sometime this season. Of course the Indians know our boys can play ball or they wouldn’t to be caught here.

On March the 27th, the Christian Sunday School had an attendance of 143 and collected $2.51 regular collection. One year ago last Sunday this same school had an attendance of 37 and collected $.51 regular collection. This is the largest Sunday school in Eastern Kentucky on the L & N R. R. according to reports sent out every week from the S. S. headquarters in Louisville. There are very few boys and girls in Mt Vernon that are not attending one of our three Sunday schools.
