The all day meeting in Sharpless' grove last Sunday was a very pleasant affair. It is an ideal grove, there is none better in the country, and the attention at both morning and evening service was excellent. Rev. L. C. Messick preached in the morning; Mr. Geo. R. Branner led class meeting at 1:45 p.m. and Mr. F. C. Rollman preached the closing sermon. D. C. Arnold led the singing. We believe that all who came there were benefited religiously.

A most distressing and fatal case of burning occurred on Nethken(?) Hill last Monday. Stephen, son of Mr. and Mrs. U. Grant Kitzmiller, aged 4 years, 3 months and 13 days, was burned to death in a small stable. He went into the stable to play with some pups which was a usual pastime for him. When the fire was discovered the stable was in full flame. The alarm was raised but nothing could be done to stay the flames until the body was burned and charred beyond recognition. It is supposed the hay was ignited by a match. The funeral services were preached by Rev. L. C. Messick, and the interment was on Atlantic Hill in the burying ground on Frank Junkin's farm.

Take Bloodine Liver Pills.
They are the finest natural laxative in the world--gentle, safe and prompt and thorough.
They help Nature help herself and keep the bowels healthy, bile active, and stomach well. They never sicken, weaken or gripe.

Departed Spirits

Mr. L. E. Goodson, of Martins Ferry, Ohio, a trumpet medium, was in Keyser and visiting J. K. Staggers and family a few days last week; and held a series of successful meetings while here. There are several people in this section who have denounced The Spirit Return. Some have investigated and changed their minds, also their way of living. Refering to myself, I was a very wicked man, as there are quite a few who were aware of the fact, and it did me good. There is no one perfect but I think it would do any one good that would investigate for themselves and not take hear-say by some one that does not believe in anything that is not laid in their hands. We have had the experience and we have the Great Book to back us. The laws of God are the same as they always were, and history does not make or give any change. We also claim that there are seven different ways of and by which we can communicate with our departed friends. It is open for any one to investigate, that wants to do so for their benefit, and those who dont and denounce it, just bring your Bible and come to me. I have not been a Bible reader long but I can prove by it that we are right and if we dont do any good in particular we can not do any harm, for if it does not help a person's condition there is no seen or unseen power that will. I would like for every good thinking man and woman to come in touch with Spiritualism and The Spirit Return

Rev. F. H. Havenner

Rev. and Mrs. F. H. Havenner returned home this forenoon from Oakland where they have spent the summer. Mr. Havenner's numerous friends and admirers will be more than pleased to know that he has recovered from his surgical operation and will fill his pulpit at the services next Sunday. Doubtless a large congregation will be in the pews to welcome him back to his church, delighted with the privilege of again being permitted to hear the gospel from his lips.

Our Peach Show

 Remember The Sincell Company Peach Show at The Sincell Department Store this afternoon and all day tomorrow: choice fruit, eloquent addresses and handsome ladies will be some of the attractions upon that occasion.

Cattle Killed on B. & O.

Forty cattle were killed outright, eight cars demolished and the track torn up for a considerable distance in a bad wreck on Monday afternoon on the Baltimore and Ohio R. R. at Great Capon. The track was bloackaded. Three car loads of lumber, one carload of bran and several empty box cars were piled on a heap. Charles Riley, of Harpers Ferry, assistant road foreman, was injured and a fireman had his foot injured.

A Brother Editor

The editor's heart was made glad on last Monday afternoon when Rev. C. D. Harris, D. D., editor of the Baltimore Southern Methodist entered our office and we were once more permitted to look into his smiling countenance and catch the twinkle of his brilliant eye. He spent Sunday at Van Myra Camp meeting, where he preached one of the ablest sermons ever delivered on those grounds.
The editor of The Methodist and the editor of The Tribune were room mates at Randolph Macon Collage [sic] and ever since those days their souls have been knit together like the souls of David and Jonathan. We are not surprised to konw [sic] that the Baltimore paper is more successfully managed and has a larger circle of readers than ever before in all of its history. Dr. Harris is a gentleman of large physique, of massive intellect, and has a heart big enough to take in all of the world. From here he went to the Lewisburg District Conference and has promised to make Keyser another visit in the autumn days.

Fatal Fall From Car

 Godfrey Paul, aged 34 years, who was employed as a fire clay miner by the Union Mining Company, near Mt. Savage, was mortally injured Saturday shortly before midnight when he fell from a car of the Cumberland and Westernport electric railroad, near Franklin school house. He had left Westernport about 11:30 p.m. where he spent the evening. Paul was riding in the smoking compartment which has a wide door on each side. The seats run lengthwise. He transferred from one side to the other and when he sat down he apparently leaned backward too far, and losing his balance, fell out rolling under the car. His leg was cut off and he sustained other injuries. The injured man was taken aboard the car, which was run back to Westernport. He lived forty minutes after the accident. Dr. C. J. Fazenbaker attended him.

Good Rains

Within the last week we have had the best rains that have blessed us within the last twelve months. The ground is soaked and the streams are flushed. Had we had our way we would have had these rains weeks earlier, but they have done great good at this date and all are thankful for them.

Two beautiful matched bay colts, 2 and 3 years old, bred from the same mare and "Uric Wilkes," a Kentucky trotter. They are fine. Also a fat cow.

A Card of Thanks
The Tribune force is indebted to Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Leatherman, of Oak Lawn Farm, for a large basket of choice fruit, which was richly enjoyed.

George F. Cunningham

Mr. George F. Cunningham, a prominent and well to do farmer, died Tuesday afternoon at his home at Murley Branch, aged 75 years. He is survived by his wife and eleven grown children. His body was taken to Petersburg Thursday for burial.

Letter From Kansas
Paola, Kansas
Aug. 28, 1911

Dear Editor:
It has been some time since I wrote my last article. I have concluded ___ pen a few more lines for The Tribune, and give some of the items and events in this part of the State.
Since my last communication the stork has visited Mr. and Mrs. Golden Davis and presented them with a twelve-pound boy, born August 3, 1911. On the arrival of the little stranger, another grandson, I began to meditate on what is termed western progressiveness, making use of prospective ideas. And since his arrival I have disposed of my farm where I now live near Paola, at an advance of what I paid for it, and have purchased from in Anderson county on the Missouri and Pacific railroad, 50 miles southwest of my home, containing 240 acres. This farm lies on what is known as Indian creek, and one hundred and twenty acres of it is bottom land, almost perfectly level. The rest of it is slightly rolling with no rocks or waste land on it, with a good seven-room house, and a new barn, that cost a little over sixteen hundred dollars. There are 15 acres of it in corn this year and the corn crop is estimated to make fully 40 bushels per acre.
Indian creek is noted for its Finny Tribe, and if any of my West Virginia friends will visit me I will promise them a good time fishing. Possession is to be given the first of January, 1912.
People from other states who have been prosperous, come here to buy land, in the last ten days there was one man at my home from Kentucky, one from Indiana and one from Iowa, all looking for farms and viewing the country and getting prices.
They come, not like the eastern man, studying true valuation, or whether they will ever get the ionterest back on theri investment, and the only object they seem to have in view, is a home regardless of cost. One old lady expressed herself to me and said Paola was a town where all the rich old men come to make it their home. We both live in sight of the town, but her observation was years of experience, miine of only a few months. And while I can be numbered with the old, I can not be numbered among the rich, so you see why I am leaving this section of the country is not clouded with so much of a mystery after all.
We have been having fine showers here of late and it is helping the corn in maturing and ripening to a more perfect crop.
I was glad to see in the Tribune the prospects for a railroad from Keyser to Twin Mountain Peach Orchard and congratulate the citizens of Mineral county in giving encouragement to so great an enterpriuse as that, it does me good to know Mineral county is coming to the front.
I had the pleasure of hearing Wm. J. Bryan speak at a Chautauqua held in Paola, to about seven thousand people, and the next night to a California orator.
Some of the colored people have charge of large farms; they ride in fine carriages, and some of them in automobiles.
I am stringing this article out, will close with best wishes for the people of Mineral county.
M. T. Davis

Every year a large number of poor sufferers, whose lungs are sore and racked with coughs, are urged to go to another climate.
But this is costly and not always sure. There's a better way.
Let Dr. King's New Discovery cure you at home. "It cured me of lung trouble," writes W. R. Nelson, of Calamine, Ark., "when all else failed and I gained 47 pounds in weight.

A Great Advantage to Working Men

J. A. Maple, 125 S. 7th St., Steubenville O., says "For years I sufferd from weak kidneys and a severe bladder troble. I learned of Foley Kidney Pills and their wonderful cures so I began taking them and sure enough I had a good result as any I heard about. My backache left me and to one of my business, expressman, that alone is a great advantage. My kidneys acted free and normal, and that saved me alot of misery. It is now a pleasure to work where it used to be a misery. Foley Kidney Pills have cured me and have my highest prase." Arza Furbee dealer.

16-Inch Gun

Plans for a new gun, which, it is said, will astonish the world, have been completed by the United States navy and will make the world-beating fourteen-inch gun absolete. The plans were made by Admiral Twining, Chief of the Bureau of Ordinance.
Recently the government completed a fourteen-inch gun, but it was learned that other nations--Japan included-- are also building guns of this caliber. A larger gun was immediately contemplated for the United States, and a sixty-seven-foot gun was the result. The fourteen-inch gun is fifty-two feet bore with an eight-foot breech, and fires a shell which weights 1,400 pounds. It is calculated to rip the armor from a ship at a distance of eleven miles.
According to statements, the new gun will carry a shell of 2,000 pounds and will be effective at fifteen miles. Admiral Twining says this will necessitate a somewhat greater ship, as it will carry ten 16-inch guns, enabling it to hurl a broadside of 200,000 pounds of shells.
Reports from distant officers show the practicability of using the aeroplane with wireless telegraph equipment as a range finder when other ships or forts are below the horizon. With a telescope the scout could ascertain where the first shells fell from his own fleet and wire instructions

Foley's Honey and Tar Compound

Still retains its high place as the best household remedy for all coughs and colds, either for children or grown persons. Prevents serious results from a cold. Take only the genuine Foley's Honey and Tar Compound, and refuse substitutes. Arza Furbee dealer.

Of Great Benefit to Keyser

Keyser people have found out that A SINGLE DOSE of simple buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc. as compounded in Adler-i-ka, the new German Appendicitis remedy, relieves constipation, sour stomach or gas on the stomach almost INSTANTLY.
This simple mixture antisepticizes the digestive-organs and draws off the impurities and it is surprising how QUICKLY it helps. Keyser Pharmacy.

It seems strange to us that so many news papers publish Pastor Russell's sermons. We do not think such pernicious doctrine ought to be read by the young for so many desire to think "there is no Hell," and such seems to be the doctrine of the Rev. Russell. Is not the fact that there is a future place of punishment as plainly taught in the Bible as that there is a future state of happiness? This is a question that is of vital interest to everyone.

The Board of Regents

Prof. Geo. S.

He was politely but plainly told that the Board of Regents had been derelict in the discharge of their duty and that the citizens of Keyser were ready and anxious to cooperate with any proper movement for the success of the school, but that the people of Keyser were unwilling to accept any blame whatever for the mismanagement of the past term. Keyser stands ready to assist the Board in making the school a success.
