(Vol. 41, No. 17)


  Wm. E. Oates and family, of Gormania, visited friends here last week.
  Wm. Davis, who lives on the Tram(?) Road, has moved to Pearce, near Thomas.
  Our esteemed and venerable friend, James I. Barrick, of Washington, D.C., was a visitor to friends in this vicinity last week. His wife accompanied him.
  There is a heavy chestnut crop this year, a match for the huckleberry crop. Walnuts and hickory nuts are plentiful also.
  Rev. J.W. Bedford preached his farewell sermon last Sunday and the half year's finances were paid up in full. Rev. Bedford was much beloved as a pastor and he is a very influential and useful man.
  Mr. I. H. Bane, wife and daughter, Miss Helen, made a visit to Bayard last Saturday and Sunday.
  Messrs. Wm. Greenshields and Robert McKinley have gone to Dubois, Pa., to work in the mines. Their families will remain here for a short time.
  Rev. L. C. Messick's symptoms are not so favorable at present.
  Mrs. Elizabeth Smith and her daughter, Miss Jean, of Midland, are the guests of Mrs. Wm. Greenshields.
  Rainy, rainy, rainy, and lots of grass. There is a heavy crop of fall pasture and it is a great blessing.
  Oscar Blackburn has moved into the McGinnis house.
  Mrs. D.C. Arnold and daughter, Miss May, were at Cumberland last Saturday.
  On Wednesday evening of last week, Alfred McKenzie, of Chaffee, presented himself to F.C. Rollman who is a notary public, having a revolver in his hand and exclaimed, "I am a criminal. I shot a man. Place me under arrest!" Mr. Rollman was shocked at this startling statement, but soon gathered further information from the man and sent for Constable Geo. F. Jackson, who took the prisoner in charge. The facts briefly stated, as near as we can learn them, are this: There were hostile feelings between the said Mr. McKenzie and Richard Riggleman, both of Chaffee, and both married men. On this Wednesday it seems that Riggleman set out to do McKenzie up, and had two men with him, his friends, to see fair play. McKenzie, seeing that the odds were against him, fired on Riggleman and shot him through the side of his neck. The sound was thought to be fatal at first, but the wounded man is now in a fair way to recovery. Constable Jackson took the prisoner to Keyser on Friday following and lodged him in jail to await the action of the grand jury. Those who know the most about the two men and the unfortunate affair sympathize with Albert McKenzie.

The Austin Flood

  The town of Austin, in Potter County, Pa., was destroyed by a flood last Saturday in a manner that recalled the terrible Johnstown flood, May 31, 1889. The Bayless Pulp and Paper Co. maintained a dam about ten miles above the town that had a capacity of 500,000,000 gallons, the recent rains filled it to overflowing and on last Saturday it gave way. Austin was a town of about 3200 inhabitants. Costello, a town of about 450 inhabitants, situated below Austin, was also destroyed. From one to two hundred lives were lost and the loss of property is estimated at $6,000,000. The Governor of Pennsylvania sent tents and troops and supplies to shelter, protect and feed the homeless people. The breaking of the gas mains caused a fire that wrought havoc also.

War Formally Declared

  Rome, Sept. 29. - - Italy has declared war on Turkey. The official announcement was made late this afternoon. It declared that the two countries were in a state of war beginning at 2:30 o'clock on the afternoon of Friday, September 29.
  Though every indication pointed to this action by the Royal Government, there was a possibility that the good offices of other Governments would be successful in avoiding hostilities and when the final decision of the Cabinet was announced the excitement throughout the city was intense.
  The Minister of Marine sent wireless orders to the Italian fleet off Tripoli to act immediately.
  The blockade of the entire coast of Tripoli and Cyrenaica will be undertaken immediately, and a notification of this act will be sent to all neutral powers.
  The steamer Hercules left Tripoli today with 500 Europeans.

  Rome, Oct. 1 - Three Turkish battleships were sunk and six torpedo boats damaged by the Italian squadron under the Duke of Abruzzi, which had been pursuing the Moslem fleet from Beyrut to Constantinopla. The engagement took place near the entrance of the Dardanelles. The Italian ships circled the Sultan's vessels and prevented them from gaining the cover of the forts in the Golden Horn.
  In the exciting naval battle which followed Turkish warships were outmaneuvered. The aim of the Italian gunners was accurate, and after a short engagement the three Ottoman battleships were sent to the bottom.

Cheshire, who live near Burlington, were married at the bride's home Wednesday, October 4-1911, at twelve o'clock in the presence of a large assembly of the friends and relatives of the contracting parties. The ceremony was performed by Rev. A.A.P. Neel. Immediately after the marriage a sumptuous dinner was served, and that afternoon the happy couple took the train at Romney for an extended Southern tour and expect to be gone the rest of this month. The bride was the recipient of a large number of handsome and useful presents. The young people are both very popular in their community and have the best wishes of every one for a long and prosperous life together. The groom is an active young business man and the bride is one of the most accomplished and attractive young ladies of her neighborhood. The Tribune extends congratulations.

Needful Knowledge

Keyser People Should Learn to Detect the Approach of Kidney Disease

  The symptoms of kidney trouble are so unmistakable that they leave no ground for doubt. Sick kidneys excrete a thick, cloudy, offensive urine, full of sediment, irregular of passage or attended by a sensation of scalding. The back aches constantly, headaches and dizzy spells may occur and the victim is often weighed down by a feeling of languor and fatigue.
  Neglect these warnings and there is danger of dropsy. Any one of these symptoms is warning enough to begin treating the kidneys at once. Delay often proves fatal.
  You can use no better remedy than Doan's Kidney Pills. Here's Keyser proof.
  D. T. Greenwade, 8 N. Main St., W. Va., says: "Having used Doan's Kidney Pills on several occasions and been greatly benefited, I am in a position to recommend them. I took this remedy when suffering from backache and other symptoms of weak kidneys and it was not . . . [balance of article not copied]

Good Roads

  The question of good roads is one that interests all of us. There seems too much confusion of opinion as to what constitutes a good road. A smooth, level highway that all can pass over without obstruction and one that will not yield to the influences that come in contact with it would undoubtedly be called a good road. How can such a road be maintained? Water is the common enemy of all roads. Then the good road must be constructed so as to overcome the effect of water which destroys by rapid flow and gullying the surface. To accomplish this it is necessary to have side ditches paralleling the road with sufficient capacity to carry any amount of water that may accumulate under normal conditions. The ditches must be kept free of material which will obstruct the travel of the water from its accumulation from the road bed to the outlet. The surface of the roadbed must be so constructed that the water can find easy access to the ditches and not flow parallel to the road. It takes but little force when water is flowing in the road to loosen the soil, stone or gravel, and eventually cut a rough place which will impede travel and thus ruin the road. First the side or lateral ditches must be considered, and they must have plenty of room or capacity for all the water which may be shed from the road surface. There should be cross ridges across the road bed to turn water into the side ditches. These are not entirely favorable to travel, but they are indispensable to the life and value of the road. Automobilists object to these cross ridges very seriously, but they greatly save expenses and time of repair. As I view it, the good road is the one that remains good at the least expense of repair.
  I have in mind one bit of pike or stone road that does not have side ditches of sufficient carrying capacity or cross ditches or ridges. One violent rain washed out all of the stone on each side of the road. Weeds and other obstructions were allowed to accumulate in the ditches until they failed to serve the purpose for which they were constructed at considerable cost. This is a subject which should be well studied by all farmers and road builders.

A large force of hands will be worked until the winter weather forces the company to suspend operations. Because of numerous delays the officials may be unable to take the Editor to Burlington one of their parlor cars on Christmas Day, as they had previously promised him. The time in which they will be able to complete their work of construction will depend largely upon the condition of the weather. The company will rush work as rapidly as possible and we feel very certain that we shall enjoy our promised trip to Burlington on the new railroad before corn planted season begins, possibly by the time that the Whi-poor-wills begin to hollow.
  We are pleased to be able to report to our readers that the building of the railroad is now an assured fact. Since last spring the question has been discussed pro and con and the issue has been uncertain, but now a definite conclusion has been reached and the people may rest assured that the project will be carried out. At the very beginning of the movement we threw our soul into it because we believed it would be a help to our town and county. We are even more strongly convinced of that fact now and those of our citizens who have worked so faithfully for the success of the enterprise are public benefactors. Now that this enterprise has been secured let us feel encouraged to go after others until Keyser has become a railroad and manufacturing center. We need a trolley line from Keyser to Piedmont and then it should be extended up New Creek into Grant county. Something ought to be done to secure the establishment in Keyser of a basket and crate factory. Few towns have so many natural advantages as Keyser possesses and when human energy and skill supplement what nature has done for us ours will be the most desirable residential and the most important business town in West Virginia.

Don't Let the Road Get Bad

  Keep the road good. The protracted drouth has permitted the ordinary roads to wear smoothly and ____ for many years has so large a mileage of wagon roads been so unusually fine. Of course the dragged roads were smooth without wear, and where they have been dragged for a series of years they are noticeable less dusty than undragged roads of the same soil. In fact even the roads that have been dragged only a year or two show a marked decrease in dust.
  Now that the roads are so generally good it would be almost caiminal [sic] to let them go back to their old time soft, trough, mud-hole state, when so little effort is required to keep them in fine condition. Get a split-log drag ready and accept the first rain as an invitation to smooth the road and push a little dirt to the middle.
  The breaking of a long drouth is usually a gradual process. I mean that moderate rains at first, and that the parched earth drinks the moisture so greedily there is not much mud or washing of the soil. A choice opportunity is thus provided for bringing a neglected road into proper shape by doing a little frequently.
  So get a road drag ready.
  Use the drag when the soil is "moist but not sticky."
  Go - after every good shower; be greedy to grasp every chance to drag the road when the surface is softened. Do this and the road will remain good all winter. But the work must be continuous; if you fail once then the rainwater will lodge in the road after the next shower. And water remaining on the road means soft spots and mudholes.
  Build a light drag; build it according to the directions, which may be had for the asking from the office of Public Roads at Washington. It is all very simple. - D. WARD KING.

Attorney E. B. Carskadon

  When two drummers yesterday through a mistake drove away with the rig of Attorney E. B. Carskadon, it was believed for a time that the outfit had been stolen, and Constable John S. Walker and Mr. Carskadon started in an automobile in pursuit. Last evening the rig was brought back to town by the two men, and Sheriff George E. Amos stopped them and learned of the mistake. Attorney Carskadon was then notified and the matter was adjusted.
  The drummers came in late Thursday night and stopped at the Tavern. They made arrangements with the Manley livery barn for a buggy for use Friday and asked that the rig be sent to the Tavern about 9 o'clock Friday morning. They did not get up until late Friday and it was about 11 o'clock when they out to get the outfit. There tied to a telephone pole was a horse and buggy. The two men got in and drove to Boothsville, transacted their business and came back again.
  It happened that Mr. Carskadon had business at the depot yesterday morning and while he was away the two men took his horse and buggy which he had left tied to a pole. It seems that the livery stable misunderstood the arrangement and were keeping the team at the barn for the men.
  When Mr. Carskadon returned and found the buggy gone he made inquiries and was told that two suspicious looking men slipped out of the hotel and climbed into the rig and drove away at breakneck speed. He at once secured the officer and an automobile and gave chase.
  It happened that as Sheriff Amos, who was keeping sharp lookout for the stolen rig, was watching from his office window about 5:30 last night he saw the outfit being driven into the alley back of the Manley hotel. He hurried out and stopped the two men. They told him they were taking the rig back to the stable, and explained their side of the story. The affair was so clearly a mistake all the way round no prosecutions were made, but the drummers fixed up matters with Mr. Carskadon, who received his rig little the worse for its usage of the day.
