    * Log Cabin, Nov. 12, 1915 -- “Good suggestion - It has been suggested that the different lodges of Cynthiana unite in the purchase of the Reister lot on Walnut Street now occupied by Jas. McMurtry Jr. as a livery stable, and erect a four story building for their own use for lodge purposes and including an auditorium for public meetings, dances, etc. It is believed that a movement of this kind would prove popular. The lot which will be sold on the 20th is a very desirable one and no doubt the bidding will be spirited.”

  • Indian summer unfolding this autumn?

    I heard the weather forecaster mention the chance of an Indian summer last week and it got me thinking about this old print my father had hanging in his office.
