Middletown and Rocky Hill school Notes of the Day. '4' 9, The Jeffersonian will never have to give a prize for the most popular young ladies in this community again. Misses Theresa McDermott, Louise Owings and Mary Folk won this honor by going out in the streets and helping the boys and girls clean-up- . The professional men of the town were too busy to work, but found time to boss the job every now and then. Men worked on this day that never worked before in their lives. Charlie Tyler and J. C. Bruce came in for a great deal of credit for securing the sweeper and grader for the occasion. Wagons and teams were furnished by men "too numerous to mention." EL R. Sprowl's desire was accomplished at last by having 'something doing'' in Jeffersontown. W. J. Semonin is the right man in the right place and at the right time. L. C. Owings couldn't be present, but he sent some mighty good substitutes. J. C. Alcock said that a might v good example was set and he hoped the good work would continue. W. T. Buchanan said that he had Jived in Jeffersontown for S3 years and this was the lirst time thestreets were ever cleaned. Miss McUermott found a tin can on the public square that had a date of 179 on it. Some of the merchants objected to having the streets cleaned in front of their premises, it is said. Frank Fauelli bought several hoes to work with from another merchant districts, reported in favor of the Rocky Hill people. The contention of Rocky Hill was sustained, by the Board. The patrons of this district were represented by Attorney L. R. Curtis, of Louisville. Another important matter that was discussed was the bills presented by 1'. K. Miller and J. C. Alcock for premiums due on fire insurance covering certain school houses in the county. The Board has decided to cancel all fire insurance and set aside several hundred dollars each year of the tax money to protect their own property instead of insuring in insurance companies. As the insurance was ordered, it is said, by trustees and division boards, instead of the County Board, it was the opinion of the members of the Board that they were not legally liable to pay the cancellation fees. However, a committee was named to confer with County Attorney Scott Bullitt upon the question of the legality cf the claim and to take action upon his .advice. It was reported that Mr. Bullitt was of the opinion that on account of the insurance not being contracted for by the County Board this hoard was not liable under the law. Therefore, the committee wili reject the payment of the bills, it is said. As the members of the Board ordered the insurance and as the policies were accepted uy them and the first installment premiums paid by the County Superintendent, it is believed that suits will be brought by the insurance companies to require the Board to pay the premiums due.

The dead fish were floating on the surface of the water. The owner is Durrett Lane. Miss Annie Larkin. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Noah Larkin, and Mr. Benjamin Hilbers were married on Wednesday. Miss Larkin is a very popular young lady. Mr. Hilbers is with Mr. Frank Kernan in the grocery business. They have a host of friends who congratulate them and wish them all the good the world holds in store. Miss Bertha Hujo, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hujo, was painfully burned. by the explosion of a gasoline stove on Wednesday evening. Miss Hujo was assisting her mother in preparing supper when she discovered the stove was leaking. Miss Hujo quickly threw the stove into the yard when it exploded, and in doing so the flames burned her hands badly. Middletown, April 24. Mrs. K. Harris, of Louisville, is visiting her mot her.
