NOVEL BIRTHDAY PRESENT
This week, R Malcom Frye on his 30th birthday received a package on which was plainly printed "You can have a hog bite of this, Kid." He was much interested as to the contents and the donor. The package contained several large slices of rich, juicy, country cured ham, from his mother-in-law Mrs W C Parker, of Romney, who knew his inordinate liking for such food.

ASSAULTED WITH AX
A man named Gillespie, in Ridgeley W Va, struck C V Parmer of Ridgeley, upon the head with an axe, inflicting a very painful wound. It is stated that Parmer has lately been threatening the life of Gillespie and had also approached the latter with a knife, which caused the assault. Gillespie claims self defense in his action. The assault was made at the residence of Mr Shinholtz in Ridgeley. The local police on Monday night arrested the same Parmer on the complaint of carrying concealed weapons. He was however released shortly upon a forfeit of $25, and at that time stated to the police at the station house that he intended to harm Gillespie.
Following sunshiny spring days for some time past, Thursday night and Friday the thermometer got down to a point the coldest this winter. In the valleys the thermometer ranged from a few degrees to 10 or 12 above. Reports from the Alleghany region of this county in some cases put the mercury 5 degrees below zero, where 6 above was the coldest before this winter. Fruitmen are uneasy about the results.
