+Yesterday J.M. Proctor’s barn moved off its foundation, glided across a yard and up a hill. It took the bone and sinew of most of Crossville’s Spanish killers to accomplish the move. While they were engaged in barn rolling, the fair ones were having a “thimble party” in the house. At 5 o’clock the men headed to the house where chicken legs, pickles and coffee disappeared without grounds for demur. Not satisfied with the day, all stayed half the night to culminate a most happy “barn rolling.”
+Riley Hall was the recipient of a pair of young jack rabbits which were sent to him from Texas a few days ago. Riley is highly pleased with his strange pets.
+Grassy Cove – The land, a vast scope at least, in the cove is greatly overflowed with water. The Cove Creek is higher than it has been for sometime and the wet weather continues.
+Some weeks ago a report circulated and generally believed that "loping Tom” Norris had been found dead in the Music settlement some miles south of Crossville. It now transpires he is not dead, as he was in Crossville Monday. Rumor now has it that the report was due to finding “Frog Head” Norris in a stupid condition and almost frozen. He is thought to have had a little more White Mule than was good for him.
+The farmers are busy putting in their potato crop and the farmerettes are busy planting gardens and hatching chicks.
+Considerable excitement has been aroused at Clifty with the finding of the skeleton of a man. Children playing found it on the river bank not far from the Ransom-Benedict saw mill close to Clifty.
+The lecture given by ex-Gov. A.A.Taylor had an appreciative audience. The distinguished guest was introduced by A.L. Garrison who served as his private secretary for two years. Following the lecture Gov. Taylor formally dedicated the new auditorium and commended the people of Crossville for the handsome school building they had erected.
+Thelma McElhany, Crossville, was named Tennessee’s Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow. She and the young women chosen from other states were hosted to a tour of Washington, D.C. and Williamsburg by General Mills.
