* Cynthiana Democrat, July 26, 1917 -- Big crowd at Cynthiana Court Day. The livestock market not so strong as last court day. Auctioneer W. F. Renaker reported about 200 head of cattle. They sold from eight to nine cents a pound. Cows brought from $50 to $90 dollars a head. Plug horses sold from $40 to $75, and good horses from $100 to $150.
* Log Cabin, May 26, 1880 -- Gus Berry, charged with throwing rocks at Dover Colemans house, was fined $5 and costs for breach of peace. A $100 peace bond was also required of him in default of which he was sent to jail.
* Joe Garagiola -- Baseball is drama with an endless run and an ever-changing east.
* Cynthiana Democrat, June 1896 -- There are 260 miles of turnpikes in Harrison County, all toll roads. The people are freely discussing the question of free turnpikes, and it is a matter of but a short time until the gates will be down. The Kentucky Central Railroad traverses the county, and the Cincinnati Southern cuts through the western edge.
* The Mirror, Sept. 6, 1902 -- We regret that Sunday baseball has been introduced at Cynthiana. There may be some excuse or even a reason for this in large cities. We are not informed upon the subject, however this may be, there can be no reason for it in such places as this. It should be discouraged and deserves the condemnation of all good citizens.
* Herbert Hoover -- Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.
* Cynthiana Democrat Print, June 1897, Official Programme, Kentucky Division, League of American Wheelman, Twelfth Annual Meet, Cynthiana, Ky. -- Cynthiana is a city. By the natural order of things it is so. Once a hamlet; next a village; then a town -- now a city, of course. . . .Not so great that one must dread the deadly cable or the grewsome electric. Not so pompous that old-fashioned Kentucky hospitality has been relegated to the realm of innocuous desuetude. Only a neat, pretty, clean little place, with plenty of breathing room, plenty of fresh air, plenty of hospitable citizens . . . plenty of bike friends, and plenty of everything else that tends to lend a charm to the stranger within our gates.
* 1932 -- Political Pull -- May Be -- Of Use -- For Razor Pull -- Theres No Excuse -- Burma Shave
