Company "K" State Guards Given an Honor...

The Lebanon Falcon [newspaper] says Capt. J.E. Willis and Lieut. George Cleaver, of Company K, State Guards at Bradfordsville, were in Frankfort last week as a committee from their company to secure orders for their boys to accompany the Governor on his trip to St. Louis upon the occasion of the dedication of the World's Fair grounds in April. They had the pleasure of personal interviews with Gov. Beckham and Adg't. General D.R. Murray, in which they were given assurance that Company K should be included in the guard of honor. There will be eight companies of fifty men each and two battalions, A. and B. of Louisville, [to] accompany the Governor on this trip. The number selected from Marion county boys will depend on their efficiency. An inspection will be made between the 15th and 20th of April and the best men will be selected. All the guard will organize in Louisville. Capt. Willis is very enthusiastic concerning his company and never loses an opportunity to advance their pleasure or profit, and the boys should appreciate his efforts on their behalf.
