Christmas was very dull here. It seems like every custom has changed. When we were a boy - not over sixty years ago - there was a pleasant rivalry between friends, as to who would be the first to wish a "Merry Christmas" but this has all passed away, and it is comparatively seldom you hear Merry Christmas mentioned, and if you do, it is in a cold, half hearted manner, as though it was merely from the lips. We would be pleased to know if this is the style every where and if so are education and refinement the cause of this? Who will give a reason?

PUSH ROOT

Four or five of the folks got together before Christmas and tried to get up an entertainment to celebrate that occasion. They wanted to practice a little music and treat the balance of the people to something good. something like you hear on a graphaphone or at a nickelodeon. they circled around the melodeon and started to practice a few simple airs they thought they could sing. they thought the effect was fine, but when Uncle Hiram Root, who was in the next room hollered in and asked what was the name of the piece they were singing their feathers fell. They had been singing "Nearer my God to Thee," a hymn Uncle Hiram had heard all his life. this kind of took the starch out of them and each began to blame the other for disguising this old familiar tune. Each claimed that the other produced such a discord that they couldn't carry the tune. they finally settled on a piece called, "Anthem" in which each individual singer could sing a bit and then let the other take it up. they rendered this at the entertainment. Out of respect of the singers feelings no criticism will be made.
the balance of the entertainment was pretty good. four great big over grown boys stumbled up the isle and recited "Little Foot Prints in the Snow."
Nine little girls with letters on sticks tripped up and arranged themselves in a line so that the letters would spell B-E-T-H-L-E-H-E-M, providing they got them in their proper order, which they didn't do. they got wrong, some how or the other and lined up in front spelling T-H-E-H-E-L-B-E-M." The audience was very much surprised and thought they were advertising some kind of throat wash. The superintendent got up and in a few well chosen remarks explained that the children had been late starting to school and didn't know how to spell very well.
Miss Laurel Root sang a very impressive solo entitled, "It Looks Like Something the cat Dragged In" after the singing of which there was hardly a dry eye in the house.
Pure Food Law candy was distributed to all the children and the grown ups each got an orange. such little attentions as these are the things that stimulate attendance, especially for the three or four Sundays preceding the entertainment.
ginger Root had bespoke to take Miss Minnie Swift, our talented young school teacher, but was laid up with a cold and couldn't get out. Last Wed night, Ginger decided to take a bath, although he knew the season had closed. He filled up a wash tub with water and got out in the kitchen, after the family had gone to bed, and proceeded to carry out his threat. Just as he began, old Tabby, Maltese cat, knocked the candle over and left him in the dark. While endeavoring to relight it the cake of soap fell in the tub and not being of the floating kind sank to the bottom. Ginger in getting the soap out got his arm wet, clear up to the elbow and every since has been laid up with a severe cold. Ginger says that here after he will either wait until the bathing season spends of else use only soap that floats.
It is reported hereabouts that the Twin Mountain and Pacific have received a brand new stem-winding eight-day movement, up-to-date engine, fully equipped with bell and whistle. This looks like she was coming. the next thing to get is about 350 signs saying, "Look Out For the Locomotive" to be placed at the crossings.

Eggs are too much a dozen."

THE GOOD CITIZENS OF KEYSER

At a convention of your citizens held in the Skating Rink after notice had been published and publicly given, which convention was open and largely attended, a ticket of your choice was nominated for the offices of mayor, Recorder and five councilmen.
These nominees are all men of good character, standing and reputation and taken from the ranks of the people.
They were not selected because of any personal object or interest of any one, or that they might be influenced to act against the interests of the people of this town.
They are identified with the best interests of the town, while none of them are possessed of much of this world's goods, yet they all have a keen sense of right, and take pride in the Town's welfare. This citizens convention was the only convention publicly called and held and its nominees that can be held to have received their commission from a free convention. The people making up the Citizens Convention came freely of their own choice and participated in its deliberations. In doing so they exercised one of the highest privileges of citizenship and thereby publicly expressed their choice for the offices to be filled at the election to be held Jan 4th, 1912.
It has been said that his convention was composed principally of the laboring people of the town; and that the business men did not attend it. It was an open convention and the business people could have attended, had they wished to do so. So far as we know the business people have not given any reason for not attending the convention, nor do we know that they did not wish to attend. We have no complaint to make of the business people, and do not know why they should complain of the laboring people. It it were not for the people of the stand and character attending the Citizens Convention, we are of the opinion there would be few business men in Town. They keep up the business men and make it possible for them to do business that will support themselves and families. We believe the business men of the town understand and know that the laboring people have a right to meet in public convention and make nominations for public office, and that they will not, and cannot, afford, to permit the Citizen's Ticket.
What other convention was held for the nominations of candidates for town offices? WE KNOW OF NONE. Will some one tell us where and when it was held and who attended it?
The ticket, by some one called the "People's Ticket: was not nominated at a public Convention, but was selected by a few persons. If the People's ticket is entitled to the votes of people, and they are the people, will someone tell why it was that the people were not invited to the convention and given an "American" opportunity to express their choice?
We ask the good citizens of Keyser to consider the manner in which the candidates on each ticket were nominated. The necessity for a public convention, and also for a secret convention, and then tell us where it is according to the "American Idea of a Square Deal" fro a few persons assembled in private to put out a ticket and call it"The Peoples Ticket"? We insist IT IS NOT, and firmly belive that the American manhood within the bosom of the Good Citizens of Keyser will place their stamp of disapproval upon the Peoples Ticket, by electing the entire Citizens Ticket to office.
All we ask of the people is a square deal, and we pledge you that if elected, we will give the affairs of the Town committed to our care, honest and efficient attention.
