Trolley Line for Berkeley
For a long time past, a number of the people og Berkeley Springs have been talking of the Advisability of a trolley line from Berkeley Springs to Winchester and Hagerstown to connect the great battle fields of the war of the rebellion and now they are about to be realized since the Cacapon Power Company has sold its franchise to the Washington and Winchester Electric Company.
Arrangements are now on foot from a survey from the Potomac River to Winchester and those interested are considering two routes one via Unger's Store and the other via of the Valley Rd., which will not be so hilly and can be built at much less cost. It is argued that this line can be worked as a freight road as well as for passenger between Winchester and Hancock, there to connect with the Western Maryland raod and the same giving passengers direct connections with two of the leading railroads at Hancock.
Mr D W Weaver, the merchant is an interest in the Boy Scouts movement. For some time he has been organizing the boys.

Missing an Opportunity
From some unexplainable reason, the young people of our town are not showing the interest in the advertisement of the Klots Throwing Silk Company it deserves. While we had had several applicants, the number is not what it should be by any means up to this time. There is an exceptional offer made to at least ten girls. Who will be next to take advantage of this good offer? Leave your name at this office.
Deadly Stable Fly
At least one means have been found by which the deadly malady, infantile paralysis is spread.
Experiments covering many months have resulted in the discovery by Professor Rosenau and his associates of the Harvard Medical School, that the common stable fly (stomoxys calcitans) is a carrier of this disease.
According to the Harvard Alumni Bulletin, monkeys were first infected with the disease by injection and then allowed to be bitten by the stable fly. After a necessary interval these flys were allowed to bite other monkeys. Theses animals exhibited all the symptoms of the disease in six cases out of twelve, thus establishing the fact that the disease could be carried by theses insects.
No principle, however is regarded as scientifically established until it has been confirmed through repetition of the experiment by other observes. Accordingly, at the request by Dr Anderson and Frost of the Public Health and Marine Hospital Service at Washington, working on the basis of the facts attained at the Medical School, repeated the experiment and proved that the disease which developed in monkeys bitten by infected stable flies, Thus the proof that the fly carries the virus of the disease is complete.Ex.

CLEAN UP DAY
The Town Council has designated Thursday, May 1st, 1913, as "Clean Up Day." All persons residing in the town are requested to clean up their premises prior to that date and deposit all rubbish and refuse in the alleys where it is accessible to the town wagons and it will be hauled away on the day named. Do not deposit anything in the alleys after Wednesday evening, April 30th.
In this connection, I desire to again call your attention to an ordinance (IV) of the Town which makes it unlawful to throw papers, rubbish and refuse of any kind in the streets and alleys or to burn papers, trash, etc. in the streets or alleys. After CLEAN UP DAY this ordinance will be strictly enforced and all violations will be punished by fine or imprisonment as prescribed in the ordinance.

In making improvements to the old building on Armstrong street, formerly owned by the McGahans, several copies of the South Branch Intelligencer, which was published at Romney for almost a century, were found. Some of them were dated as far back as 1861.

Four young men from McCoole, across the river from Keyser, have left home and are believed to have come here and secured employment with the B&O Railroad. Chief Hetzel yesterday received a special delivery letter from Atty Harry G Fisher, of Keyser, asking hi to be on the look out for the quartet and to arrest Earl Amtower, who left contrary to the wishes of his parents. Two of the other boys are named Kessner and Able. They left Tuesday and are all under age. Connelsville News.
Rumors are continually being spread about the marriage of certain parties that turn out to have nothing whatsoever to warrant them.
It has been recently rumored about town that a certain young man of Keyser was very recently married. Upon inquiry, we have been unable to find anyone to substantiate the rumor and no one seems to know anything definite in connection with it. People are liable to cause us to print articles that are untrue and often embarrassing by reporting mere hearsay.
Came Near Losing Eye
A few days ago Mr R T Kauffman, proprietor of the B & O Restaurant, went into the bathroom in a great hurry to bathe his face, and without thought, used a piece of soap left here for the public to use. In a few minutes his eye commenced to hurt as if from fire. He went to a physician, and with all the treatment he came near losing the optic. A large piece of the inner lining of the upper eye lid was burned away. It is supposed that the bather had been using some powerful acid.

A Serious Misstatement
The report went the rounds of a number of papers to the effect that Mrs W B Newman dropped dead at the grave of her husband, when he was buried at Terra Alta last Monday. This is absolutely false, and how it ever gained currency can only be explained through the thoughtlessness or malice of someone.

The theft of an orchard a new wrinkle in the criminal annals of W Va, has been perpetrated on Judge T A Brown's farm near Elizabeth and deputy sheriffs are today endeavoring to locate the trees. Judge Brown has gone there to spend several days and will endeavor to discover who stole his apple trees which were dug up and carried away root and branch. The work was evidently carried on for several days and nights. The thieves stole 700 fine pedigreed trees. It is believed that the thief transplanted the trees on an orchard of his own. Judge Brown believes he will be able to identify them. Detectives are now visiting certain orchards in the apple belt, and it is confidently expected they will soon find the trees and also the thief.
A colored man of Keyser, being ?????, decided to plead guilty, and before going into the court room for sentence said, "They will let me go if I marry the woman, won't they?" Upon being told that what was done to him was a matter for the court, he said, "Well, that is all I had to do before."
An attorney is speaking to the court for mercy stated that his client was in the same position as the colored man who upon being told that he was indicted for arson said, "Well, I suppose there won't be anything to it if I marry her."
The attorney stated that his client was in the same position, he wanted to marry her and let it drop. The court was inclined to be merciful and find him only, and with consent of Prosecuting Attorney, give him time to pay his fine. He further said to the prisoners attorney that, "This man may be already married for all I know and to get out of this he may break a more serious law." He said to the prisoner, "You may be married for all I know, and if you marry a woman while you are already married it is a whole lot more serious offense than this." He then asked him, "How many times have you been married?"
The prisoner replied, "Only twice"
