In a recent issue of Tribune, Hartmonsville correspondent asks for explanation "Why last two teachers of Hartmonsville school failed to give Wilber Clark Honor Certificate for regular attendance." Now as the question is a personal one, I'll discuss at length. In first place it is not a teacher's duty, but a privilege to give Honor Cards. Second, Term report card which I gave pupils contained record of attendance, head marks, deportment and grade on the various branches with complimentary remarks. Third, I gave each pupil souvenir of school, which contained a record of attendance, also. Now, if I have been lacking in generosity, I must confess it was through ignorance and not design. My policy has always been to treat all pupils alike and assume the true attitude of a teacher toward his pupils. I trust correspondent will consider this explanation in the spirit intended and not as a rebuke, for I must assure him his honesty of purpose, integrity and loyalty to his friends has never been questioned, in my mind.

For the first time for a long while news is very scarce this week. The folks are all staying pretty close to home waiting for the much hoped for spring weather to come. When people don't move around the news will naturally be scarce. They can't move very far on account of bad roads. The committee appointed for the purpose of fixing the roads, at the Good Roads Meeting, haven't struck a lick, so there seems to be nothing to do but wait and let nature look after them.
Alonzo Wallace, better known as Lon, Of Burlington, or thereabouts, bought nearly the entire Push Root district last week and expects to make many much needed improvements. He is going to build a house, a barn and other out buildings. In fact, he is going to build every building on the place. Lon is a hustler of the first water and will make a good citizen.
Next Tues the literary society will hold a special meeting which will really be a reception for Lon. The address of welcome will be delivered by Rev John Jerebum Jones, and other leading citizens will talk on a similar strain until bed time, or until Lon gets enough welcome.
The Push Root Rifles are still drilling and hope to be in shape to parade at all of the Fourth of July picnics. Any Fourth of July picnic committee wanting this organization for parade purposes, will do well to ask for open dates and terms.
Spring plowing would be the order of the day if the weather would permit since no plowing has been done consequently no pots of gold have been unearthed. This delays another annual item.
The weather has been so cold that no inducements have been offered for the belled buzzard to return. Another annual item delayed.
After a careful perusal of the above, it can be plainly seen that news is very scarce.
Uncle Hiram, Hez Root's father, who has been right poorly, is just about the same.

God has taken to his home,
Little Delcie sleeps, but not forever. When we see a precious blossom
That we tended with such care,
Rudely taken from our bosom,
How our aching hearts despair,
It shall sleep, but not forever,
In the lone and silent grave,
They shall meet to part no never
In the home, the Lord hath gave.

Again another noble woman has passed from time to eternity, this time the beloved wife of Mr T B Wagley of New Creek WV, at the age of 51 years and 28 days, of tuberculosis of the lungs.
Mrs Wagley was born at Kitzmiller, now Blaine WV, March 1, 1860. Her father moved near Ridgeville, Hampshire County, now Mineral County, when she was two years of age.
She leaves a husband and four children, namely Bessie, Mary, Harry W and Mrs Margaret Dicken and Elsie Leigh to mourn their loss.
Her suffering, though great, was to the last borne with that calm and gentle spirit, which she always possessed. She was conscious of her condition and perfectly rational to the last moment. She died on March 29th, almost as calmly and peacefully as if going into a quiet slumber, alas, the sleep of death. But is was like the life she had always lived, serene and contented with all around her, the embodiment of all that is pure and good in a wife and mother, and a useful member of society with the greatest blessing of all, an exalted Christian character. What can I say of such a woman that will assuage the grief of the bereaved husband and children who have thus been left to mourn the loss of such a treasure.
Nothing but time, the great healer, can temper and alleviate the anguish of your loss, and leave with you the cherished memory of your saintly mother and wife, and render our after lives. I hope more compatible with the living nature of the estimable subject of this feeble memorial. Although a great sufferer for years, she was always ready to lend a helping hand to the sick and distresses. Her adorning was not of the outward form, condemned in the Scriptures, but on the contrary the "adorning of a meek and quiet spirit which in the sigh of God is of great price." Death, though coming "like a thief in the night" found her lamp trimmed and burning. For a great many years, she has been preparing to meet her God; was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. The gentle footstep will be missed and the vacant chair in that desolate home can never be filled as of yore. She has passed beyond the dark mystical river of death, only to stand on the fair banks of the river of life, where "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain for the former things are passed away." Rev XXI 4.
Servant of God, well done;Rest from they loved employ;
The battle fought the victory won,
Enter thy Master's joy.
The voice at midnight came,
She started up to hear,
A mortal arrow pierced her frame,
She fell, but felt no fear.
The pain of death are past,
Labor and sorrow will cease;
And life's long warfare closed at last,
Her soul's forever to peace.
Soldier of Christ, well done,

Praise be thy new employ,
And while eternal ages run.
Rest in thy Savior's Joy.
Estelle Hott


Harley Iser, son of Mr and Mrs L A Iser, who lived at Blaine, was flagging on the W M Ry near Chaffee last Tues and was seen lying on the track by the engineer of a north bound freight , who blew for him to move, which he did not, and the engine dragged him about 100 feet before the train stopped. It is not known whether he was dead before the engine struck him or not. A tramp found near was arrested, but released after a preliminary hearing. The funeral was conducted at the M E Church, Kitzmiller, yesterday forenoon, but Rev R C Weidler and interment was at the Dayton cemetery, yesterday afternoon.


On Thurs, March 29, 1911, Mr and Mrs J B Rees entertained at their home at Reeses' Mill a crowd of young people from Keyser, in honor of their niece, Miss Grace Sheets, of Keyser and a daughter Miss Jessie Rees.
The jolly crowd left Keyser about 5:30 PM and arrived at Reeses' Mill about 8 PM.
Shortly after arriving a delicious "country supper" was served, after which the crowd adjourned to the parlors where they were most graciously entertained.
Owing to the condition of the roads from the rain that evening, the driver refused to start home before daylight, for fear of some accident. About five in the morning, the merry crowd, a little bit sleepy, started for home, arriving there at 8:15 Friday morning "too late for school".
All reported a most delightful time and would surely enjoy another such trip to Reeses Mill.
Those present were: Chaperones, Mrs Isaac Newhouser and Mrs Dickey, Misses Vivian Wright, Pauline Maxfield, Mary Moore, Marguerite Greenwade, Marie Crooks, Nancy Lauck, Jennie Wells, Florence Hamill, Maude Orebaugh, Jessie Rees and Grace Sheetz. Messrs. Ervin Shelly, Marshall Carrier, William Dawson, Prentiss Watson, Philmore Harwood, Paul Douglas, Stotle Steorts, Percy Kee, Edgar Mytinger, Wallace Anderson, Harold Reese and Melvyn Rees.

By virtue of the authority vested in us by a decree of the Circuit Court of Mineral Co, WVa, made and entered on the 21st day of Jan 1911, a chancery cause therein pending, wherein Glenn K Ritzell is plaintiff and Ethel V Ritzell and others defendants, the undersigned special commissioners appointed for the purpose on

Tuesday April 18, 1911

at one o'clock pm at the front door of the court house for said county of Mineral, offer at public sale to the highest responsible bidder, the real estate and property mentioned in the bill and proceedings and by said decree directed to be sold. this property consists of Lots No 52, 53 and 54 on the Davis Map of said Town, fronting on West St, 90 feet, more or less, and running back 92 1/2 feet to Pear alley, as appears from a deed, dated May 21, 1885, from the Board of Education to A P Ritzell and of record in Deed Book No 11 at page 75, in the Clerk of Co Court, for said county of Mineral
There is on these lots a two story brick building with a brick blacksmith shop and store room for blacksmithing and wagon making material. The building is lighted and heated throughout with natural gas. It is well equipped for wagon making and blacksmithing business. Its equipment consists of a band saw, shaper, joiner, plane, rip saw, boring machine, sand belt, tenet auger, emery wheel, hub boring machine, tin bender, cold punch and shear, thread cutting machine and dies, hot shrinker, blacksmithing and carpenter vices, hammers and tongs, sewing machine for sewing buggy tops, etc, paint mill, scales, tin cooler and setter, with a complete equipment of line and counter shafts, pulley and beltings.

The ladies of the church gave them a reception in the parsonage yesterday, where they found a clean, well arranged house, a sumptuous dinner already prepared and the larder well filled with necessary articles for future use. They have already made a favorable impression upon the congregation and the people are looking forward to a pleasant and successful year.


Mr H S Pulliam brought 17 head of very fine horses and mules to Keyser Mon, the horses ranged in weight from 1000 to 1500 lbs, one pair of mules weighed 2200 lbs. He has already sold out the entire lot. It was one of the best lots of horses and mules ever sold here.
Mr Pulliam will have a lot of high grade horses and mules on hand constantly. He sells his stock with a guarantee. He also has a lot of buggies and all kinds of harness.
