From a Barbour County Scrapbook
Clippings from the Barbour Democrat

1931
One of the outstanding displays of the recent Barbour County Street Fair was the window exhibit arranged by Howard B. GRANT in one of his store windows. He had there more than a score of guns the manufacture of which dated back many years. Besides he had numbers of articles which brought back the memories of former days to the sight seeing public. Kitchen utensils of all kinds, and many other articles the grandfathers and grandmothers used instead of the modern appliances of today. In the poultry display at the Fair we noticed a curiosity which would have been considered a wonder in many places. It was a hen who was unable to sit down like other chickens and stood straight all the time. We were told that this particular fowl was a good layer and in other respects like a normal chicken.
