* Cynthiana Democrat, Feb. 15, 1945 -- “On Monday, while at the Cynthiana Stockyards, John Wheeler had the bad luck of receiving gashes on the leg from the tusk of a vicious hog. He said the attack was so sudden and swift that it was over before he had a chance to defend himself. His wounds were dressed at Harrison Memorial Hospital and he returned home.”
* Cynthiana News, Jan. 7, 1869 -- Herman Rohs is about to establish a large coal yard near Pleasant Street on the railroad in this city.”
* Henry Adams -- “A teacher affects eternity; he (she) can never tell where his influence stops.”
* Cynthiana Democrat, Jan. 4, 1951 -- Princeton, N.J. - “Among the 185 Princeton undergraduates who appear on Princeton’s annual football awards list was John M. Swinford, Cynthiana, Ky.”
* Western Citizen, Paris, Ky., July 23, 1862 -- “On Thursday, Col. Guthrie reached here and took command of our force...A scouting party which had been sent out under Col.

* Log Cabin, Nov. 12, 1915 -- “If I were yours and you were mine- I’ll tell you what we’d do- Just lunch on Stone’s Cake Divine - And let the cook skidoo - Six kinds, one price, 10 cents. W. B. Rouse Co.”
