Business and things in general have picked up considerable since the railroad resumed operations. Real estate is at par and some lots and factory sites can be bought for a few cents less than par, providing the purchaser has real money. There will be a citizens meeting next week, at which the advisability of donating a site for the round house and car shops will be discussed. There are several locations here that will make excellent places for either a round house or car shops or both. Something like this is needed more for advertisement that for any other reasons yet advanced.
The good roads haven't changed much since the last rain and the effects of the picnic have about worn off.
Hez Root, our mosts up-to-date farmer, has been reading considerable about the use of dynamite on the farm. He read where in some sections they are doing nearly everything with it except hauling their produce to market.
It seems they plant fruit trees, pull stumps, dig ditches, plow fields and in fact nearly everything that formerly required the use of pick and shovel is now done with this explosive. Hez thought that if all this could be done successfully that there was no reason why corn couldn't be shucked with it. Hez no more than thinks of a thing until he does it; so upon the conception of this idea he hies himself to the county seat and gets some dynamite to shuck his corn with. He bound the tope and bottom of a shock of corn with baling wire, and placed a stick of the explosive in the center. Upon lighting the fuse he lit out and ran about a mile to get out of the way. He waited about two hours before going back, when he found the shock had been burned to the ground. It seems there was something wrong with the fuse and the fodder caught on fire instead of exploding the dynamite. This didn't daunt Hez.
He fixed up four more shocks and set them off. HE says it worked very successful. IT not only shucked out every nubbin but shredded the fodder. The only objection is that what is left is rather hard to find and gather up. HE says if the corn could be carried into the barn before dynamiting there is no doubt that the operation would be more than successful as the corn would be shredded also when it hit the sides of the barn.
Sheriff Davis was in our midst last week hunting taxes. From all reports he didn't get many as money is awful scarce around her. He said he was coming back next month, after corn-cutting.

The next legislature out to pass a law making string beans, pumpkins and other garden notions legal tender for taxes.
A party from Burlington and Headsville passed through here last week enroute for Allegheny to gather a few chestnuts. They got back a few days after and from the looks of the sacks they brought back a few was all they got. It seems the fog was so dense that they couldn't find the trees much less the chestnuts. While out there they saw our old friend Ike Poling, who says he will be back for the election.

Married at the home of the bride, Oct 11, 1911, by Rev Geo S Arnold, cousin of the bride, Mr John Raymond Hubbs and Miss Nellie May Arnold. The marriage ceremony was performed promptly at four o'clock in the afternoon in the presence of about forty intimate friends of the bride and groom. The sweet strains of Medlesshon's Wedding March played by Mr Harold Hubbs, brother of the groom, announced the coming of the bridle party.

The bride was beautifully gowned in white marquisette over white messiline and carried a shower bouquet of bride's roses and lilies of the valley, and the matron of honor was gowned in lavender marquisette over white silk and carried a pretty bouquet of white carnations.

Rev Emmett B Druen and Miss Sallie Shannon, both of Springfield W Va, were drowned in the South Branch last Sun afternoon while attempting to cross at Thompson's Ford, near Springfield. They were on their way to Three Churches where Mr Druen had an appointment to preach at na afternoon service. From there they were to go to Frankfort, where Rev Mr Druen and Rev Mr Smith had been holding a series of meetings, for the Sun evening service. The service was held at Frankfort without Mr Druen. After the service was concluded a telephone message was received from Springfield inquiring if he and Miss Shannon were there, they had expected to go from Three Churches via Springfield, but, as they had not done so, it was thought that they might have gone to Frankfort by another route. They then phoned to Three Churches and learned that they had not reached there for the afternoon service. Their friends then became alarmed and searching parties were sent out. They followed the buggy tracks to the ford, then, crossing the river on a foot suspension bridge, they could see that the horse and buggy had not gone out from the other side of the river. This fact reveled to the anxious friends what had been the sad fate of the young couple.
All night long the search was keep up. About noon Mon the buggy cushion was found on a little island below the ford and later the broken buggy and drowned horse were found wedged against the rocks in the stream about a mile and a half below the ford. Mon night a short distance below the ford the hat and coat of Miss Shannon were found.
Rev Mr Druen was pastor of the Presbyterian churches at Springfield, Three Churches, Frankfort, Eusebia and Burlington and was universally beloved, not only by the members of his own churches, but by all denominations. Miss Shannon was a very attractive and popular young lady. Mr Druen was about thirty-five years old and was a native of Richmond, Va. He had been pastor of the above named churches for about three and one half years, and his tragic death cast a gloom over hundreds of homes.
The river had raised about four feet Sat night rather suddenly and become muddy. Being well acquainted with the ford and being a careful and prudent man it appears strange that Mr Druen did not discover that the stream was too high to cross. He drove past the bridge at Grace Station, which he could have crossed and gone down on the south side of the river, but he evidently preferred going down on the north side and fording the river as the road was better and there were gates across the road on the south side.
Mr Druen's brother arrived from Richmond Mon night while Miss Shannon's aunt, Mrs Shanholtzer and her two daughters and Hon Jno B Shannon, of Frostburg, came to Springfield Mon afternoon.
At this writing neither body has been found.

Music Hall, Friday, Oct 20, 1911, at 1:30 pm

The various temperance organizations have federated for the adoption of the PROHIBITON AMENDMENT. They have jointly planned an organization of each county, down to the Magisterial districts, and through the District Committee a club is to be put into each School district which will list and catalogue every voter in the district. Liquor agents are already making a personal canvas of the voters and this is the only way we can meet their attack.
The temperance forces of this State must join together and go into the campaign for Prohibition Amendment as a united and harmonious force. If thoroughly organized we will be invincible and while the election is nearly fourteen months off, to make a thorough and effective organization we must begin at once.
This convention is called for the purpose of perfecting our county organization by the choice of a County Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer, and arranging for the appointment of Magisterial District organizers. The hour 1:30 pm seems most convenient for this purpose. A special lecture has been arranged for. Representatives of every class of temperance citizens will speak briefly. Come prepared to speak three to six minutes.
The temperance situation in the State will be clearly and comprehensively presented, the duty of Mineral county indicated, and plans and methods for arousing all the people in this great moral question will be set out. Every man in the county who has the welfare of his own and his neighbor's family at heart, should make some sacrifice, if necessary, to be present. Bring the women and children for it is largely for them we make the fight.
It may take some effort to come at this time, but every public spirited man will make that effort. Think of our honor staked on one chance of our life time. Interest young neighbor and bring him COME AND BRING.
This opens the campaign in Mineral County, which, God wiling, shall not close until every temperance vote is in, honestly counted and the returns honestly made. We need every vote to offset our wet cities and Southern counties' wet belt.
If you are for the Amendment, lend us the support of your presence and counsel. If you are opposed o the Amendment, meet wight us and learn form us that we only wish to do God's will in this matter. If you are uncertain, then come and take your stand on the moral side of this issue. This meeting is called by representatives of all he temperance people of this county.
