Hiatt, cashier of Citizens Bank of Brod-beacame prowling into Stan ford about 2 o'clock this morning, having had automobile troubles on tkeir way from Cincinnati, where each of them bought a Buick touring car. Near Georgetown the inner workings of one of the cars got wrong and from there to Nicholasville they had to go at a snail's gait. At that point they left the car, however, and it was far into the wee sma' hours when they struck Stanford, where they spent the night. If the gentlemen had come to Stan ford and bought the cars from Will Hays they would have avoided all the useless trouble they experienced. They'll do it next time.
