* Log Cabin, Dec. 28, 1945 -- Marvin Ross, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Ross of Cynthiana, last week returned home after graduating from the Repper Auction School, Decatur, Ind. Attending the school were embryo auctioneers from all over North America, who studied under 17 professional yet, practical instructors. Ross was fortunate enough to measure up to the high standards and consequently was not shipped home, as were some of the students. An ad in todays issue announces the service he provides.

* Cynthiana Democrat, Dec. 27, 1917 -- Court Day - Large crowd in town Monday in spite of rain and nasty streets. No stock on the market at any moment. The crowd was in a Christmas humor and patronized the stores liberally, all the houses doing a rushing business.
