PUSH ROOT

  Quite a few of the folks from this section packed their dinner baskets last Sat, preparatory to attending the Fruit Growers Jubilee on Knobley Mountain. They heard there was to be an excursion over the Twin Mt and Pacific, so hied themselves down to the tracks and waited for the train. About nine o'clock some one came along and advised them that the train would only run from the county to the picnic ground. This made a few of them mad and they went back home. Some of them, however, were anxious to see the train, so hitched old "Moll" and "dobbin" to the carry-all and went anyhow.
  All report a tremendous big time. Upon landing in the orchard a road lead due E 26 poles to an old white oak; then E20 degrees S to the top of the Ellifritz gap, where horses and mules could be hitched and fed. The road from the orchard to the picnic ground is just about three and one half feet out of plumb, which made climbing difficult and appetites large. The lemonade barrel was full to overflowing and was presided over by Bill Utte and family, who drank most of it.
  The Keyser Band was in attendance and performed excellent. They rendered a very classical program consisting of pieces composed by Chopin, Mozart and Faust. The nearest approach to anything like ragtime was when the horn blew for dinner. They were surely there with the goods at the dinner table. They sat right down on the ground in their uniforms fearless of ants and regardless.
  Miss Myra Nefflen gave a funny reading, over which she nearly convulsed with laughter, entitled "Tickling a Mule's Heels with a Rye Straw." After this, when the audience had fully recovered, a man from the university warmed up the atmosphere with a talk on fruit. From the lemonade barrel he could be heard but by the way his arms were moving he must have made some speech or else he though he was in Romney, delivering a commencement address to the mutes.
  The peach packers from Sleepy Creek were indeed peaches. One's name was Miss Biggs, the smallest one, and the other had a long name of German extraction.
  They could shear and pack a basket of peaches while you were looking at them. They have a record of two boxes a jiffy.
  After the mid day repast Sen Hood of the county seat made a few remarks as a tonic, and then introduced Prof Alderman who read figures from the back of an envelope that were truly staggering in their immensity. He began back in "AppleSeed Jonnies" time and gave statistics down until July 1917. He would have given more, but said there would probably be a good many locusts around that season and the apple crop might be light. When he finished and the figures had been digested, the Band played Mendlesons Concerto No 3 Opus 21 (?SIC). this took some time and gave the folks time to walk around a bit.
  Miss Wagoner of the county seat gave a reading or recitation entitled "Ode to the T M & P"
  Several candidates were present shaking hands and setting the people up to lemonade. Frank Lee Carl of the Dailey News was present with his note book. His article in regard to the affair said there was 1,000 present. The crowd averaged about 500; therefor Leesy must have been seeing double.
  The crowd from the county seat left at 4:30 singing a song composed for the occasion.

  July 30
  News is somewhat scarce here as no one can get far from home since the flood. Of course, when this reaches the readers of the Tribune, flood news will be getting a little stale, but I will give some of the happenings in our immediate neighborhood.
  Before 10 am it began to rain in moderate showers and continued until about 2 pm, when the down pour commenced, accompanied by wind and terrific lightning and continued - with two short intermissions - until about 3 o'clock. Every little rivulet and ever low place where there was no streams became raging torrents, sweeping away fences and bridges and making water courses of many of the roads. We will leave the Potomac valley for others to report, but will give a little sketch of Abrams Creek, which we get form an eye witness and those how have been over the ground (or where the ground ought to be) since the flood, commencing at the N W Turnpike bridge. Here on a high portion of the bottom, the pens at Russ Likens' cattle scales were washed away. At the ford of Johnnycake creek the stream took the pike from there to Red Bridge at Abrams Creek and is now the channel of the first named streamed. County Com. Idleman says it will cost $500 to repair this place (?). One of the abutments at Red Bridge is undermined and otherwise damaged; it is thought it will have to be rebuilt. This abutment has stood there for about 70 years. Next in its course was Charley Ferribee. His garden and truck patch of about two acres, was part washed away and the balance buried and a pen of two fine hogs taken. Next it took a great portion of the Wabash branch of the railroad washing away the road bed and moving the track to the west side of the creek. Next it struck Switchback. Here it became a "Johnstown flood" on a small scale. It cut round the county and R R bridges and went down through the village moving three houses off their foundations and taking one away. The Junkins appears to be the heaviest losers. Tomp's and Arch's houses were both moved and everything on the first floor either washed out or ruined, whilst George's house was taken clear away. Emory run that comes in here flooded several houses and took Capt. Taylor's warehouse and the platform from his store; also the county bridge just below the store. From this point to Harrrison, the damage would be hard to estimate, a great portion of the railroad is taken out, two of the new county bridges and several cars are reported gone. Those who saw it say that the creek crossed the river at a height of about four feet and ran to the hill on the Md side.
  Mrs J W Roderick, who has been quite poorly the past two weeks with liver trouble and indigestion is now able to sit up a part of the time. Mr W G Drinkwater, of Gormania, is the attending physician. Miss Minty Cooper is helping to nurse her and is keeping house.
  Joe Kisner has purchased the Schell store and has made application for the postoffice. Jack Fleming is still there attending the the office and "learning Joe the grades".
  Our old friend, David M Leatherman, of Ridgeville, came out and spent last Sat and Sun. A week passed with us. Come again, Mack, always glad to see you.
  A Mrs Humbird, from about Cumberland is visiting Mrs Clara Roderick at this writing.
  Rev L C Messick delivered an interesting sermon at Rehoboth last Sun. He was accompanied by his sister, of Harrisonburg Va, who is paying him a visit; also their father, Capt Messick, who is spending the summer here.
  By the way, Bro Hink, let us know what the flood did at Push Root, Tarkiln Ridge and the Fingerboard Farm.
  There is an old adage, "There is never a loss without a gain." During the recent storm the lightning struck and killed Bill Idleman's old horse.

August 5
  We have had a few days now without rain and our farmers are trying to make hay, but it is cool and cloudy the great portion of the time, and the ground being wet, it is almost impossible to cure grass in any reasonable length of time. Some are cutting their oats, whilst some of the oats is not yet ripe; the crop is good this year.
  Our potato crop is extra heavy this season but we notice the vines are beginning to blight and in some patches the potatoes are beginning to rot.
  The new mercantile company is now doing business under the firm name of The Schell Supply co "Limited".
  The Potomac Bridge and Improvement Co, having lost their bridge in the recent flood, met last Sat to discuss ways and means whereby they might erect another bridge. President Moon resigned his position and withdrew from the company and is now running a ferry up at the ford (his old gray horse). Vice President Wheeler then called the directors together and it was decided to bridge the channel next to the W Va side and wade the smaller channel on the Md side. They then erected a pier by driving two forked poles into the ground in the channel and placed another pole upon them; they then placed two sils from that to the abutment on the W Va side, when work was suspended for an indefinite period, but one of the directors assured us that the work would be pushed to completion just as soon as they could get enough of Speicheer's lumber up form the dock and get the nails from Joe Kisner. When we left the place in the evening Vice Pres Wheeler was sitting astride one of the poles, singing "I came to the river and couldn't get across."
  We neglected to say in our last that Jake Shillingburg got pretty badly bruised up some time since by a scaffold fall with him and Geo Kitzmiller, whilst they were erecting a porch. Boys,if I had a turkey gobbler that was wreckles enough to roost on such a scaffold, I should get rid of him just as soon as I possibly could.
