  • • Log Cabin, Sept. 10, 1920 -- “We learn that several interested parties have been making inquiries about the Monticello property with a view to establishing a military school here next year.

  • No need to wait on putting the roses to bed this year. We have gone from the frying pan to the ice bath in short order this season.
