A Hydrophobia Sufferer- Sufferer- Grundy Bryant, of ; Barlow City, Ballard County, Ky., was bitten by a mad dog two weeks ago. The mad stone was applied to the wounds, and each time it was cleansed it turned milk in which it was washed perfectly green. It was thought that the poison had been extracted, but a few days after he showed signs of hydrophobia, and at last accounts he was suffering terribly from the disease. He is kept confined and watched closely by those attending attending him. When conscious he begs the attendants attendants to shoot him. He can not recover.

Barlow Has Its Own Way of Handling Fires NOT to set ourself up as a fire department scout,' but if Chief Krusenklaus wants some help we know where there are some experts. On our way from Paducah to Wickliffe trying to see 'em free the Cairo bridge the other day we got loused up by a blaze "in Barlow," Ky. Now Barlow is a municipality between the other two towns. The smoke was pouring pouring out "of the home of Richard Wilford, and the fire department was making like the New York aggregation. They had traffic jammed clear back to La Center, but they sure were knocking the spots out of the fire in Mr. Wilford's house. We talked the situation over with Earl Evans, who sells lumber, and was presumably down to get a line on how much lumber was going to be needed for repairs. "This is a small town," Mr. Evans said, "And the insurance companies have been chewing off our ears trying to get us to buy a fire engine. "Well," he went on, "We do not have use for same. Fire Chief Hinkle Bondurant and his volunteers have some hose laid away on reels over at the fire "house." The whistle blows and the boys tear out with the reel, drawing it by hand. No waiting for the man who drives the truck to get back from lunch. Or maybe the driver is, in Paducah that day. Not in Barfow. "firemen grab the reel, and in three minutes they are at the fire and are set up in business. This is for sure, because Mr. Wilford has a house now, which it looked for a time as though he might lose. When we got to Wickliffe the last toll had been paid on the big Cairo-Wickliffe bridge and the celebrants had repaired to Cairo to partake of more oratory. All except several of the small fry who the Barlow fire department knocking out a blaze were cycling back and forth across the five-mile span for free. "Good thing it's free," they told us. Ten years to a day. "Toll used to be a buck. Then they cut it to 75 cents but if you spent a quarter more and bought a ticket for a buck they gave you a sticker .and always after that you could get across for 50 cents." All I gotta say is I'm glad I got there after the toll went off, because durned if I could ever have figured out that routine! By going down to Paducah and over to the Gilbertsville dam on Highway 62 it is possible to travel on two-ferries, in case you regard this as an advantage. If it is as hard to get across the River Styx as it is across these streams, we may live to a ripe old age indeed. Harry Allen shepherds the Grand Rivers ferry, powered by an improbable craft named Red Wing, back and forth across the Cumberland. Mr. Allen informed us it had been snowing. Also that he expected the ferry would be free by spring. We had as little truck as possible with the ferry at the Gilbertsville dam. Harry Bolser said later that this craft had foundered recently, overwhelmed by the prospect of lugging a milk truck across the _____. We came back on Highway M. That crosses the business bridges.
