* Log Cabin, Aug. 11, 1900 - “The Harrison County Fair, under the management of the AOUL lodge of this city, concluded with a big day last Saturday.”
* The Headlight (L&N RR publication), April 1898 - “Cynthiana is one of the most desirable resident cities in the state. It is beautifully laid off in well-shaded macadamized streets, with brick, asphtalt and artificial stone pavements and has many imposing residences and handsome business houses. Her system of waterworks, put in a few years ago at a cost of about $50,000, is among the best in the state. The latest improved machinery is in use at the pumping station and the standpipe is of immense capacity. The educational facilities of the city are deservedly a public pride as Cynthiana has most excellent public school system and several other institutions of education, including a female college and an excellent training school for young men. There are no less than 10 flourishing churches, which stand as evidence of the moral and religious culture of the citizens.”
* Guardian of Liberty, Aug. 29, 1818 - “Sugar, Feathers, Wool, Tallow, Lard &c will be taken in payment of subscriptions at this office.”
* Elinor Wylie - “All seasons sweet, but autumn best of all.”
* Cynthiana Democrat, June 1906 - “The turnpikes of Harrison County are of the best. The county has always been liberal in matters of this kind and the consequence is a system of roads that bear comparison with any. Free turnpikes are but a matter of time.”
* Cynthiana Democrat, March 8, 1928 - “Ancient Order of United Workmen. Although this order has now been out of existence for a number of years it deserves a passing notice. It was established in Cynthiana on the 5th day of April, 1874, and in the early nineties had quite the largest membership of any lodge in the county, about 250 at one time. It differed from most fraternal orders in that every member was insured one or two thousand dollars, as might elect, and at a very low premium. As it finally developed, the rate was far too low, hence the fate of the Order.”
* 1947 - “Famous Last Words - Of Lights That Shine - ‘If He Won’t - Dim His - I Won’t - Dim Mine’ - Burma Shave”
