there is and it cant be denied For he came every year before mamma died But then Ive been thinking that she used to pray i And God would hear everything mamma would say And perhaps she asked Him to send Santa Claus here yearWell 9 And ask Dod to send him with presents aderi Ive been thinking so too n and without a pord more Four little bare feet boundeduut on the ftoo And four little knees the

of the wild and ruggedrange of knobs that form a watershed be tween the Big ndLittle South Fork in Casey county is a fiat area of land known for many miles around as Chestnut Flat The traveler may look in any direction and he sees one blue mountain peak after another which seem crowded so close together that the fertile valleys are almost lost in confusion of view One would nat orally conclude that above all others thjs would Jt e the one spot selected by the swarthy sons of the forest as a rendezvous and place suitable to deposit valuable treasures Thirty years agp a straggling deer or a flock of wild turkeys might have been seen under the large chestnut trees feeding on the itch mast which was scattered around in profusion A few years ago your correspondent passed over the ridge On the side stood a typical log cabin occupied by a lone widow the surroundings would naturally remind one of Indians bears and pioneer days It was over this high table land that a trail of the Cherokee Indians had run uniting their Southern homes and hunt ing ground with that ot the Dark and Bloody ground It was over this trail that those dusky warriors had probably traveled for centuries past carrying with them the spoils of war and the chase It was probably back in the thirties thatan old man named Buford Peyton who lived on the Big South Fork bought a tract of land on this elevated plain containing one hundred acres from the government One day as he was trying to locate his line he chan eed to step ona large chestnut log which was so rotten that his foot went through and to his utter astonishment and great joy there lay in that old log a high pile of silver and gold Could it be a tact or was he dreaming That he might not be deceived he must lean die some of the precious metal so he delved down through the rotten wood and sure enough there lay the rich treasure which it seemed had been put in a trough and hidden under the log We imagine we can see the man as he hurries from that lonely mountain top with a glad heart and beaming counte nance toy his humbly home He had enly found what men all along down through the ages have sought but yet what never has satisfied the cravings of the human heart He took into his confidence a man named David Young who Was working for him at the time to whom keg ave twentyfive dollars in goldto help him carry the money away and keep it a secret as well Each armed with a tow linen sack they stole silently through the then almost 4unbroken wilderness to the place where the precious treasure lay concealed and carried it off and when measured but there was found to be just one bushel f gpld and silver Peytons neighbors often wondered where he got and how he came in possession of so much money which he seemed to always have on iiand Butthey never knew forth men kept the secret buried deep down jo their hearts But the money loving Cherokee having not forgotten- his ng hidden wealth once again turns his face towards the sacred spot Si lently and almost secretly they trace the now hidden Indian trails through the rugged mountains until they reach the very log in which the supposed metal lay it was gone but where and howl So interested were these dusky sonS of the forest in the recovery of the treasure that a large reward was offered for the money but of course it was never found But Peytons conscience would not keep quiet He feared that Young had or would re veal the secret and that the Indians would take revenge so he moved with his family and effects to the then far off and almost unsettled Hoosier state My Informants father who was born in 1815 moved him In a four horse wagon among the plunder was a box so that it was handled with diffi QultJwhich no doubt was the Indians lest treasure The question naturally arises how did these red men come in possession of so much money The supposition was that the Indians in their raids on the fron tier of Lincoln county and other expos ed portions of Southeastern Kentucky from 1790 to 1794 had taken the money from the murdered settlers and as chestnut flat lay directly in their way they had made a First National Cherokee Bank out of the hollow log which unfortunately for theJdepositors wabroken into and robbed by Peyton and the rich treasure foreverlost Had the Indians instead of Peyton y secretlyof The Sun would never have known that 1a bushel of so precious ioin was ever hidden on Chestnut Flat I Some twentyfive years ago the ori gina pne hundred acres of land was myinfox1nantveyorto whom Young a man of truth told this story while he my informant who is a second cousin of the writer was trying to find the same line that Peyton was trying to locate When he stumbled upon the hollow log Jack Londons Favorite Recipe Jack London the novelist is a great lover of game particularly of wild duck whic i he has dubbed the sov ereign foodx If he is to eat duck howeyer r London insists that the bird shall be cooked after his own particular recipe thus if the wild duck is to beroasted it must first be stuffed with celery and then cooked in very hot for just fourteen minutes This leaves it blood rare but when it is dusted with salt and paprika garnished with lemon and served with fried hom iny or Itallian spaghetti there are few dishes that could be more delicious there are so many methods of cooking spaghetti that Mr Londons recipe for this dish will be read with interest Boil one pound of Itallian spaghetti for about half an hdur he say rand be sure that the boiling water jis first poured upon the spaghettis as otherwise its will be disagreeably sticky Peel and boil three good sized tomatoes When they are spioothadd the juice from one can of French mushrooms and one tablespoonfull of cornstarch already mixed with a little water a clove of garlic a pinch of cayenne pepper a little salt and sage a seasoning Take the mushrooms from which the juice has already beenusedcut each of them once or twice and spread

and Mr Hall of Lou isville an attorney for the comptmy asked for a franchise giving the telephone company the privilege of charg ing higher rates for the use of tele phones in the city and county their reasons being that the company was loosing money every day under the present rates In so grave a matter1 the Council felt a delicacy in granting their request upon the spur of the moment and referred the matter to the Commercial Club The Commercial Club met Wednesday evening and before a membership of about twenty or twentyfive Messrs Edwards and Hall soberly seriously and eloquently pled their cause Their plea was to develop the county and to bring the business that was gbinhto neighboring towns rt Lebanon where it should come The Commercial Club like the Coun cil recognized the gravity of the question at once and feeling themselves unequal to the task of disposing of it concluded to put the question to the people and for that reason calmly and orderly adjourned the meeting

visits down home down home where the old folks are where yet boysGwho romped us twenty years ago and where the memories of other days cling like crystal drops to every landmark the eye falls upon Hodgenville is just a Utt1old town reposing quietlike and quaint- in Nolynn Valley It is not often that she dances a jig or gets more than an ordinary move on herself She like kentucky towns of 1200 or 1500 Inhabitants is composednothing excitable or hysterical about lier just moves along with an easy swing and doesnt seem to cafe whether she gets the ofnot But the skies above her are mighty blue and they are fringed with a mellow light For tI entYsix years we stumped our toes on Hodgenville rocks coasted down her hills in winter went swimming inner old swimming hole in summer googoo eyes at that old sweet heart of mine U learned how to chew tobacco set type play marbles and disregard few of the Ten Commandments Indeed it was within these sacred r preCI eacquiredario s other accomplishments too numerous to mention Andw love her because oft thatHod1villelove she presents to us A visit time gives a felloJa chance to tune his heart and sing old songs And through the channels Of the past the mind races back to the Christmases of the long agoi when we implicitly be lieved that Santa Claus was the best est man that ever you did see These of thoughts are the only wealth we possess they are what some tolks are wont to call foolish sentiment but we wouldnt have the gift plucked from our breast for all the millions of a Rockefeller Through the light of these little torches

fellows are 1rich as all creation Often the of coin is as sweet music but how miserable the poor devil must be who cant snjoy the warbling of a song bird or see a glorious beauty and ablaze of Love in the Yuletide days And we are going down home going to the Christmas tree Of course our presents wont amount to much possi bly a pair of socks and a handkerchief a lead pencil and a sack of tobacco but praise the Lord we are going to romp again through the paths of memory with the old boys and the old girls we loved way back yonder in the 80s and we will gather in an immense quantity of SENTIMENT

JiJ 1i vertisements were written by many different people mid entered in the contest Miss Sophia P Snow then an unknown clerk in a Cincinnati store conceived the idea of writing her prize ad in verse She wrote An nies and Willies Prayer which was presented to the merchant A Com mittee decided this peW was the best advertisement and she was given the 50 The merchant had many thousand copies of the poem printed at the end of which Tie placed his business card If you have a sore spot in your heart balm it by giving a present to some poor child In making the childheart glad certainly you Will make
