B&O SHOP NOTES

  Well, that much talked of mule or the mill finally arrived and has been put up. Iy certainly did play the part "Maud" Monday, but since that time has settled down a little.

  We were up in the lumber yard, and heard a noise that sounded like a belled cow. On looking around, we saw it was our Shop Fire Co practicing with their new reel.

  Mike says, "You have to tell lies to work at a car shop." You are right Mike.

  C W Neville has returned to work.

  Carpenter Henry Clark has a new black hat. How many steps is it from the depot to the shop, Henry?

  One of our men ran a splinter in his hand, and the shop surgical staff was quickly called, and all agreed that the only way to get it out was to pull it out. Then a dispute arose as to which one shall do it. While the dispute was on the man pulled it himself.

  Wednesday, our mill dressed out some timbers for the new silk mill.

  Thursday, Joe Dickel lost 3 pounds in 2 minutes. Joe has had the toothache for the past 8 months and has suffered untold pain. 6 months ago, our shop dentist Dr Fisher wanted to pull the tooth but Joe said "I will suffer a few more months before I will have it done." Joe was set on DR Fisher's anvil for a chair while our shop firemen M F Stone held his Aranckles down. Joe weighed 178 pounds before the pulling, now he weighs 175.


NO CHANCE FOR FISH IN THE POTOMAC RIVER

  Declaring that the Potomac River was one of the places where fish do not have a chance because they cannot get through nets to their spawning grounds. Dr Hugh M Smith, commissioner of fisheries, points to the need of laws such as that in force in North Carolina. There only two portion of stream may be covered with nets. The remaining one third is left to enable the fish to get up the rivers.

  More than 113,000,000 shad eggs have been handled this season at the government's hatchery at Edenton, NC, it was said. This is declared to be a record, and it is estimated that the total may run up to nearly 200,000,000 before the spawning period is over. The hatchery is being filled to capacity, it is said.

  "This remarkable take of shad eggs this year," said Dr Smith, " Is due to the fact that NC has adopted such liberal and advanced laws for the protection of migratory fish, such as the shad, striped bass, herring and others. Whereas a few years ago most of the fish on their way to the spawning grounds were captured in nets which stretched across the waterways, today the law requires that one third the width of the stream be kept free of nets. This gives the fish a chance.

  "At Havre De Grace, Md, where we have the largest capacity shad hatchery, we took last year less than 20,000,000 shad eggs, because there is no law protecting the fish as they come up the susquehanna. The same is true in the Potomac and elsewhere." Washington Star.


CANDIDATES

  Names are slow coming in for candidates before the May 20th primaries in Keyser. Tonight at 10 o'clock the list in Mr H L Arnold's hands will be closed. Up to this time the names of F H Babb, for mayor, and Dr E V Romig, Col Geo T Carskadon, and Warren Harr for councilmen have been recorded.


SURPRISED THEIR FRIENDS

  A genuine surprise was given the may friends of Mr Don Davis, who has just closed a term of 4 years as deputy sheriff under his father, I O Davis, in Mineral county, who was married on April 18 at Wheeling by the pastor of the Zane street M E church, to Miss Gertrude B, daughter of Mrs M E Tracy of Pittsburgh. The bride is a popular young girl socially.

  The facts came to light last night when Mr and Mrs Davis came here from Piedmont and took rooms at Mr W F Giffin's on Davis street.

  Soon his Bachelor Club member friends and others assembled and for an hour or more gave the happy pair a rousing reception.

  Friends by hundreds join in hearty good wishes for Mr and Mrs Davis.
