A prospectus which the
Western Maryland Railway company will soon publish in order to give
the general public more specific information as to its facilities and
the advantages and opportunities offered for business investments at
different places along its lines will say concerning Keyser W Va, as follows:
The city of Keyser, the county seat of Mineral County, West Virginia, nestles at the foot hills of the Allegany Mountains at the junction of New Creek and Potomac River Valleys.
It has a population of about 4,500 nearly all of whom are American born citizens, and the majority of them are natives of West Virginia. This means that it has an established, loyal, homogenous population of honest, industrious, reliable citizens.
Keyser has first class
railroad facilities. It is on the trunk line of the Western Maryland
Railroad, that road that is doing so much to develop the resources of
the country through which it passes and is so rapidly extending its
facilities for handling traffic.
For many years the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad has maintained a repair shop and had a round house at Keyser and many of its train force and official reside here.
The Twin Mountain and Potomac Railroad is now being built from Keyser to the Twin Mountain Orchards in Grand county, a distance of nearly twenty-five miles, this road will furnish and outlet for some of the largest orchards in the State, open up a timber region and furnish railroad facilities for that fruit, grain and stock section.
Keyser has considerable wholesale business. The Seiver Hardware Company and the Keyser Hardware Company do large business in their line. The Thompson Furniture Company is a large wholesale concern.
The Richardson Furniture Company manufactures all of the furniture that they sell. The Patchett Worsted Company operates a large Woolen Factory. The Potomac Milling and Ice Co, operates a flour and grain mill and has an ice factory that supplies Keyser and surrounding country. The Keyser Electric Light Company furnishes electric light and power. Keyser has a large number of builders and contractors. The Keyser Pottery is one of the important industries of Keyser.
Keyser has three solid banks. The First National Bank, the Peoples Bank and the Farmers and Merchants Bank. These furnish first class banking facilities for any volume of business.
MORAL AND RELIGIOUS CONDITIONS
Keyser has no saloons and
there is not a saloon in the county of which it is the county seat.
It has six Protestant Churches and one Roman Catholic Church. The
Protestant Churches are Methodist Episcopal, Presbyterian, Methodist
Episcopal, south, Lutheran, United Brethren and Protestant Episcopal.
Keyser has first class public schools consisting of a graded school and a high school with a four year course. These schools have nearly one thousand students.
The West Virginia Preparatory School is a state institution, located at Keyser to prepare young ladies and young men for the University of West Virginia. It has a magnificent building admirably located and is patronized by students from many of the surrounding counties.
PRODUCTS OF THE SOIL
Keyser is surrounded by a grass and grain country and for many years has been a noted shipping point from which the finest specimens of cattle have been exported to England. Every year our tillers of the soil are engaging more extensively in the growing of trucks for watch our soil and climate are well adapted and which is a profitable business for those who engage in it.
The fruit industry surrounding Keyser is of such gigantic proportions and vast importance as to merit special consideration when discussing the products of our soil and climate. Keyser is the center of one of the greatest fruit sections within the United States, surrounding it are numerous large commercial orchards containing from 10,000 to 50,000 trees per orchard besides an almost innumerable number of private orchards that are sources of large revenue. Fruit culture is carried on according scientific methods and the very best results are obtained. The apples and peaches shipped from this county have a special rating in the great fruit markets. It is worth a trip of a long distance to see the orchards that bedeck our hills and corn our mountain tops. This country possess every element for the development of perfect fruit. The soil, the exposure, the elevation, the atmosphere, are all that can be desired. Fruits of the most delicious flavors and richest colorings are grown here. Peach trees in Mineral County that are thirty years old are still producing fruit for the market. No section on the globe can surpass this for fruit.
Keyser has excellent water power supplied by the Potomac river and New Creek streams. The city of Keyser is supplied with an abundance of pure mountain water for domestic use, for manufacturing purposes and for fire protection. It also has natural gas that is furnished at a very low rate.
Public roads from every
section of the country surrounding lead commerce to Keyser. The
Mineral County Good Roads Association is an organization composed of
the best citizens of the county for he purpose of making first class
the condition of the public roads of the county. Good roads mean much
to Keyser as it is the depot for surrounding counties as well as for Mineral.
Besides the advantages that Keyser offers from a business standpoint, it is one of the most desirable residential places to be found anywhere. Natural scenery inspires noble characters. Keyser combines the grandeur of mountain scenery with the beauty of the limpid rolling rivers. It has more paved streets an improved side walk than any other town of its size in the state, and its social religious and educational advantages combined with its beautiful scenery, delightful climate and general healthfulness, make it a favorite place of residence, and, should one ever be taken sick, the Hoffman Hospital is at his door where he can have the best possible attention.
Grain and stock farms can be bought in Mineral County at a reasonable price when the quality of the land and the proximity to market are considered, growing orchards, almost ready to come into bearing and first class fruit land, unimproved, but convenient to market, can be gotten at fair prices.
Keyser offers tempting inducements in order to have factories established there. This is a first class location for a cotton factory, a shoe factory and a basket and crate factory in the very heart of the fruit section. Indeed if a man has capital, energy or business capacity, either or all, there is no place where there are more advantages offered him than at Keyser West Virginia.
Mr and Mrs G H Whitesel, of
Laneville, visited relatives here this week.
J A Judy and wife of Upper Tract, passed through Petersburg Wed on their way to Alaska, Mineral county.
A good sized crowd was here at the E D Parker land sale Wed. "The Meadows" were knocked off to Assessor A J Berg for $35,450. It is understood this will be divided among three or four parties.

A little daughter of Mr and Mrs Henry B Wilhelm, who reside a short distance over the Maryland-West Virginia State line near Carnesvile, W Va, fell into the mill race of her father's mill and was drowned. The child had been playing about the door yard of the home a few minutes before it was missed by the parents. At about the same time, the machinery in the mill came to a sudden stop and upon making an investigation the miler discovered the body of the child lodged against the intake which stopped the flow of water and cut off the power.
New is awful scarce this week
notwithstanding the fact that about as much as usual has happened.
The most important event seems to have occurred when Luther
Pinkwhiskers Meyers killed a pole cat with his ax. Luther was coming
down through the brush, hunting dried huckleberries, when he heard a
scuffling in the bushes behind him. He immediately ups and looks
around. Consternation set in at once, as a big pole cat was making
for him with open mouth. Luther recovered his presence of mind and
made for the varmint with his ax. The encounter that ensued will be
remembered around here for a long while or until the slayer changes
his clothes. Luther killed the cat and they would hardly let him come
in the house for dinner. He hasn't sold the hide yet as the fur is
not thick enough for selling purposes.
Ginger Root, Hez Root's son, got into about the same predicament. He caught two in steel traps and when he found that the hides are not saleable yet, decided to mark them and let them go. He proceeded to clip an end of the tail of each. Ginger didn't have any dinner either. If this thing keeps up the skunk family will be exterminated before their hides are ready for market.
The school situation still remains as it has been for some time past, namely, no teacher in our midst. It is very bad that in this age of civilization our youth will have to grow up in ignorance. In order that they may at least learn to spell there will be a spelling bee at the school house next Sat night. Come out, boys and bring your girls.
Butchering seems to be in the order of the day. Hez Root always likes to be the first to butcher. Thurs he heard Cy Cloverblossom's pigs squalling and though Cy was getting ahead of him so went down to Cy's to let him know that he had finished first. Upon his arrival there he found Cy hadn't butchered and the squealing he had heard was only Cy's old sow with her head fast under the corncrib. This made Hez awful mad and he didn't send Cy any sausage.
The railroad is progressing as well as could be expected if not better. NO foreigners have come around yet to litter the neighborhood up with tin cans and other stuff too numerous to mention.
There are no personals this
week, except Uncle Hiram's condition, which is about the same.

The following resolution was unanimously adopted: We the teachers of Elk District in Institute assembled believing that the schools of this district would be benefited by having a district supervisor, therefore we recommend to the board of education of said district that they appoint one as soon as it seem practicable to them, The afternoon session opened by singing "Swinging 'Neath the Old Apple Tree" and "Wee Wees". Round table topics were then taken up which had been assigned at the morning session. They were, "The proper treatment of unusual children," "How to be friendly with pupils and at the same time hold their respect", "My favorite study and how I teach it", "Quibbing - nagging - worrying", and "Plans for keeping up attendance. The leaders on these subjects were: Messrs: D C Arnold, Wm H Gatehouse, T T Smith, Claude Fertig and the secretary. Many helpful suggestions were given. All felt that the day was profitably spent. The County Superintendent and the teachers seemed filled with the spirit of enthusiasm.
Among our welcome visitors were: Mr Claude Fertig of Dobbin school, and Prof Wm H Gatehouse. The teachers of Elk District who were present were, Misses Daisy Grapes, Virginia Michael, Nora Sutton, Laura Barrick, Genieve Karney, Mary Mason, Anna Fleming, Ada Gordon, Anna May Joyce, Lulu Tasker, Mabel Neville, May Winning and Estella Hott. Messrs, Thurman T Smith, Talmage Smith, Montie Haines, Clarence Umstot, Harry Owens, David W and Jas J Idleman, A C Cowgill and D C Arnold. Some of the town people and pupils were present.

SCARLET FEVER SCARE
existed the past week among patrons of the Public Schools over an
exaggerated report regarding the number of cases of scarlet fever in
the community, and as a result, many children have been kept out of
school. The writer personally made a canvass among Keyser physicians
yesterday and finds but five cases of fever, two of which have about recovered.
The utmost precaution is taken in the schools to prevent any contagion. Any cases of suspicion will be dealt with promptly and child sent home.

FROM A FORMER CITIZEN
Nov 6, 1911
Dear Tribune: How is everything with our Keyser friends and surrounding counties?
Some of my Keyser associates said we would pitch our tent towards Sodom, but never the less our blessed Master has not warned us to go and not look back. A beautiful country we are in with kind, clever people. How I wish the New Creek and Pattersons Creek Valleys had such a fine road as the one we are located by the side of, no mud, no dust, but oh the beautiful autos that hike it up and down with the pretty ladies. We can sit on the fence and see them fly by with their pleasant smiles. Hope we will all meet again, but if not here, in that beautiful country where there is no separation.
There is but a step between life and death. One moment life's pulses play, the next the soul is gone to its long rest beyond the rising of this beautiful sun which will set to rise for us no more.
Regards to all,
A H Michael
