The Enterprise gratefully acknowledges many kindnesses and much hospitality at Winchester, Ky. to Mr. W.W. Bush, one of the good citizens of there, and with whom our lot was fortunately cast while in attendance at the State Teachers Association. In returning our thanks, our words but feebly express our gratitude for their kind and generous hospitality.

At the State Teachers' Association, held in Winchester last week the people of the town manifested their unparalled hospitality by affording every teacher of the State free homes in that rich blue grass region of old Kentucky. None of those hospitable, progressive friends of education happened to be sick then, but all heartily and even anxiously sought their guests. Appropriate resolutions were passed.

The new toll-gate house on the Butler and Greenwood pike is now completed and will soon be occupied by Mrs. Bell. This improvement should be followed by the road being so repaired that it will not be so muddy when it rains. If the financial condition will permit, the ditches should be cleaned out.
