Vol. 4, No. 107   -  COVINGTON, KY., MONDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1877  -  Whole No. 1054

Falmouth, Ky.

    Throughout Pendleton it has been a dull Christmas. Inciting causes: mud and hard times.

    The new engine house is built, a two story frame, with the second story for a Police Court room and Town Hall. An inexpensive structure, the framework having been let at $340.

    The Masonic brethren had a good time Wednesday night. The Orion Lodge, 222, installed their officers, had addresses by Judge Ireland and the Rev. Mr. Taylor, closing with a dance downstairs.

     The Murphys are at Boston. Now will be seen the conflict between the irresistible force and the immovable body, which the latter be Boston, or supposed so, whatever the former may prove to be.

     Since Kidwell’s admission to bail there remains but two prisoners in the county jail, Ben Berlew, for cutting Burlingame at Boston and John Donnell, alias Jimmy Williams, for the murder of  Martin Brand.

     Falmouth voted on the 28th on the question of authorizing the town to raise by taxation, municipal credit or otherwise, $10,000, to build its two miles of pike towards Claysville. Carried by an overwhelming majority.

     C. Y. Dyas, Esq., was cut in the left shoulder, at Cook’s bar-room, on the night of the 24th. Wound not serious. The boys surmised that Mr. D. had been taking notes of some illegal drinks, with the intention of making trouble before the town authorities. Barney Cook and Andrew Kiser were held in bail to answer for the offense at Criminal Court.


Vol. 3, No. 133 - NEW SERIES       COVINGTON, KY., MONDAY, JULY 30, 1877     Whole No. 934

 Falmouth, Ky.

    A citizen of this town combines in his name the surnames of two presidents of the Kentucky Central. It is Pendleton Keith, formerly a marshal of this town.

     The superintendent of Public Instruction, Mr. Henderson, has failed to furnish the county boards with questions for the examination of teachers. The reverend gentleman is said to be at the watering places and probably lecturing on his favorite topic, “The Girls of the Period”.

     Mt. Harding, Principal of the Independent High School, has already engaged about seventy pupils. Rather a formidable array for the “Academy” to contend against.

     There is great interest taken in the turnpike question (already published in The Ticket) and the election, which takes place Tuesday the 31st inst., will likely be a victory for the turnpikes.

     Jake Simon will take an early opportunity to define the issues. Jake will surely be a candidate for County Judge and if he will make as vigorous a judge as he has an attorney, it would not be an unwise selection. Other candidates I will mention in a gentle manner as the canvas progresses, for politicos and candidates are nice summer subjects for an already heated reader to dwell upon.                                                                                                           Con.
