Mr. Vaught Spent a Week With Relatives in Fulton and Marshall Counties
          Amos Vaught,  one of Union township's prominent farmers and as clever a "boy" as ever clubbed an apple tree, was in town today looking as if he were but thirty years of age.  The latter part, the genial "Dick" ascribes to a recent trip to the lakes in the northern part of the state.
          Mr. Vaught and his brother-in-law,  Taylor Kelley,  of near Franklin, made the trip in the latter's touring car, and spent a week communing with the finny tribe in Fulton and Marshall counties.  And, what fish the two did catch.  We did not have a notary public present when "Dick" was telling about the fishing, and what quantities of bluegills and croppies fell to their skill, but allowing a liberal discount due to a follower of Izaak Walton, the fishing must have been fine.  On one day, "Dick" declares they captured ninety of the enemy.
          It was a great trip, and we know of no one who enjoys trips of this character more than Mr. Vaught.
