  • * Cynthiana News, June 24, 1869 - “Strawberry Festival - We have learned from Dr. A. J. Beale that the festival cleared about $225 - a sum we hope, sufficient to answer all the purposes demanded. C. B. Cook, Esq., of this city, being the most popular man, was presented with the gold-headed cane. It is a deserved compliment of which he is worthy in every way. The cane netted the festival $125.”
