HARTMONSVILLE

Mr Bartley Kilroy of Elk Garden was a guest of the Misses Duling last Sunday.

 

Mr Edwin Burgess of Laurel Dale was here on business one day last week.

 

Several ladies and gentlemen from Elk Garden attended the Debating Society last Saturday night. They came too late to hear much of the ‘argufying and stupefying.”

 

Dogs crippled several sheep for W P Roderick last Saturday night.

 

In a letter to a friend, J B Nash, the man who left his wife and family, of whom mention has been made several times in our items, states that he had called on President Wilson and expected to return to Emoryville soon. We guess that some who were kind enough to befriend would be glad to see him, but his wife made sale of all his personal property, and has gone to Laneville.

 

Mr and Mrs Henry L Duling of Gorman, came down to see his mother, Mrs Minnie Duling and friends last Saturday.

 

Our son, Homer, who is located at Providence, RI, said in a letter received a few days ago that the wild ducks are starving to death by the hundreds. The rivers have been frozen so long they can’t get nothing to eat.

 

We are having an old time winter. The snow in the woods is about two feet deep, and the drifts anywhere from 3 to 15 feet. The roads are impassable in many places and everybody is complaining of the severe storms. There is more snow on the ground than at any time since the spring of 1881 if our memory is right, and it is snowing now, Wednesday. One great blessing to every farmer is plenty of hay.

 

Everyone ought to submit to his Hogship’s six week reign, and not grumble, we suppose, but his ruling is about up in time, and we don’t want to complain, but with all others, would like to see fair weather.

Mr Lobb was born and raised here and spent his life near Moorefield.

HAMPSHIRE COUNTY

The recent cold snap when the temperature took a tumble to points varying from zero to twenty below, according to elevation, likewise sent a chill down the spine of peach growers, especially those with orchards on low lands. The cold came on a still, frosty night, consequently the orchards that were damaged were those on low land or which was surrounded by hills. Investigations and reports indicate that the injury to those were more extensive than the first surmised, some orchards having the whole crop killed, while in others certain varieties were wiped out. The Elbertas seem to have been the worst sufferers. The orchards on the high lands and mountaintops went, apparently untouched and the prospects for a crop on these orchards is good. Unfortunately very small growers in the country have orchards on the lower lands and these are the sufferers.

 

Dr Shull, who was called to Capon Springs, in the extreme southern part of the county, and pronounced as smallpox an epidemic existing in that community, received a report last week that altogether there has been 70 cases, only five of which, however, being anyways severe. The disease has about run its course and few more, if any cases are expected. The usual dispute as to whether it was or was not smallpox is said to have existed in the community, but Dr Shull, who is county officer, pronounced it smallpox beyond question.

 

The first accident to occur at the electric plant happened Sunday night. The boxes on the engine became overheated, causing a shut down, and, of course the town was in darkness. The damage was repaired and the lights turned on Tuesday night.

 

H B Gilkeson and John J Cornwell, special commissioners, sold at public auction on those premises last Thursday the Hookland located about 20 miles east of Romney. It was put up in four separate tracts and was knocked off to Wm Miller, Jr, at $5,000.

ELK GARDEN

Mr John Brock, the mail carrier between Elk Garden and Sulphur, made his trip everyday during the late blizzards. He traveled on foot and climbed over the snowdrifts when they got in his way.

 

There are thousands of first class snowdrifts on the mountain farms for sale. We have seen them and know whereof we speak. They make excellent refrigerators.

 

The Junior League will give an entertainment in Odd Fellows Hall, Saturday evening, March 14th. It will consist of the juvenile play, Dr Cure-All and several dialogues and recitations.

DIED, at Elk Garden, March 10, 1914, James, son of Mr and Mrs John Fahey, aged 2 years, 4 months and 29 days. Interment in the Catholic cemetery on Wednesday at 2:30 pm. Death was caused by pneumonia.

 

At the Literary last Friday evening there was recitations, readings and the usual debate. Resolved the schools are a greater moral force than jails was affirmed by L O Taylor and J E Aronhalt. The negative was championed by Clifton E Gurd and Rev W W White. Decision in favor of the affirmative.

 

DIED, at Pittsburgh, March 8, 1914, Frederick L, son of Mr and Mrs Harry Nethken, aged 3 years. The interment was in the Nethken Hill cemetery on Tuesday, Rev John A Shockey conducting the burial services. Funeral services had been held at their home. The little boy’s mound was covered with flowers. This is the third child born to this family and the three mounds in the cemetery mark the resting place of all of them. Those attending the funeral from a distance were Sheriff Irvin Nethken, Mrs Kregh Bane, of Cumberland; Mrs Tola Bekman, of Ridgeley; Mrs Nugent, of Bayard; Jos Lantz, of Alaska; Mrs Getty, of Cumberland, and Mrs Mary Nethken.

 

Mr Stephen Dixon is Chancellor Commander of the Knights of Pythias and his absence from the lodge for several meetings recently was noted, and a self appointed committee resolved to investigate the cause. Sir Knights Lloyd Oates, Newton and Upton Pritchard, Elmer Sheetz, R Marsh Dean, Fred Ravenscraft, Taylor Shears, Russell Tasker, Geo and Chris Yager, Cassel Green, Frank Bane and Wm Schwinabart met at Mr Yagers and were conveyed by Wm Schwinabart on a sled to Mr Dixon’s commodious residence. The Knights were pleasantly received by Mr Dixon and his smiling bride, for he had recently been married to Miss Lou Barrick who is so well and favorably known here. The Knights must have had some inkling of matrimonial affairs for they brought some presents for the happy couple. Mr R Marsh Dean, spokesman for the Knights, in a humorous vein presented a rolling pin to the bride with specific instructions how to use it on her husband in case of necessity. He then presented the groom with a lock with instructions as to its use given in a manner pleasing to all. Next the silverware was presented. The Knights having fully satisfied themselves that Mr Dixon had a sufficient excuse for lodge absence departed with many good wishes for a happy wedded life of the newly wedded pair.

 

Rev L C Messick’s children have the scarlet fever. This keeps him from his church work. He has cancelled all his appointments and remains with his family. He should be remembered in a substantial manner at this particular time. Rev F C Rollman filled his appointment here last Sunday evening.

 

Rev John A Shockey has been conducting a successful revival at Cross.

 

Rev W W White preached at Blaine last Sunday night and visited friends at Thomas the first of this week.

EMBALMERS FORM MORE LIBERAL RULES

Charleston

The W Va Embalmers Association met at the Kanawah hotel. The purpose of the meeting was to afford the members an opportunity to hear an official exhilaration of the rules covering the shipment of dead bodies adopted last September, and which were also adopted by the National Association of the Baggage men’s Association. Heretofore bodies could not be shipped if death had been due to certain diseases, but now they can be shipped by license embalmers in a newly devised shipping case, which has the endorsement of the association. Those present at the meeting were O C Ogdin, president of St Mary’s; H S Thompson, vice president of Keyser; W H Farrell, treasurer, Huntington; C H Watkins, Jr, secretary of Wheeling; and P L Calfee of Hinton, a member of the executive board.

PISTOL DUEL ON N & W TRAIN

Welch, W Va

R L Taylor, a deputy sheriff of McDowell county, is dead; A D Beavers, a former United States Deputy Marshal, is dying, and D W Beavers, a deputy sheriff, and T E Hickey are seriously injured as a result of a pistol battle on a Norfolk and Western train today between Iaeger and Berwind, W Va. The men had been drinking, it is reported, and when they boarded the Dry Fork train trouble arose and pistols were drawn. The shooting soon became general. Bullets flew thick and fast for 30 minutes. After Taylor was killed, “Bob” Evans, a passenger and friend of the deputy sheriff, opened fire on A D Beavers, inflicting probably a fatal wound. The car was filled with passengers and panic ensued. The duelists, however, shot true for the most part and only one combatant, T E Hickey, was wounded. The train was stopped and a posse of passengers led by a special officer entered the car and arrested those still living who had taken part in the fight. Deputy Sheriff Taylor was dead when the posse reached him. He is said to have been shot four or five times by the Beavers. A D Beavers was shot through out the body, his brother in the body and leg and Hinkle in the body. Evans was not hurt. The wounded men were brought under guard to a hospital here and Evans was placed in jail. The participants were prominent in the coal district and the officers are said to have had excellent records.

ELECTRIC LIGHT FRANCHISE

UP NEXT TUESDAY MORNING

COME OUT AND MAKE KNOWN

YOUR VIEWS—DON’T BE

AFRAID TO SPEAK

The proposition of the Keyser Electric Light Co, the plans and map are being looked over by many, but somehow not as it should be. The proposition offers a marked improvement over the past namely the cost per month. At the present the city is paying between $275 and $285 per month for the electric lights and in addition $35 per month for gas light making a total of $310 for both. The new system contains 20 extra electric lights in addition to the number already for $300 per month. These lights will be divided into 28 of 350 candlepower, 43 of 200 candlepower and the 50 to 80 candlepower will be replaced with the Tungsten new improved swinging facilities for hanging the lamp in the center of the street will be installed where practical, affording light at all angles. The proposition calls for a franchise for ten years and if given the company they will meet and hear any one upon the subject. It is up to the people to express their opinions. Be present and say then what you have to say. Don’t wait until the matter is settled.
