Some missing blurred
Mr. Rockman of Hardy county, was through our
neighborhood last week looking for cattle and seeing how many our
farmers had wool for sale. We don't hear that he made any purchases
either. Assessor Patton was making an official call through our
neighborhood yesterday in the interest of those "Good Rozds"
that we never get. By the way, F. C. has a broad smile this year for
every one he meets. Wayman Kitzmiller, who has a shearing machine,
has clipped nearly all the sheep throughout a large portion of our
country and is doing nicer work than any man can do with shears, but
he ran up against it last week when he tried a flock of marinoes; he
worked one day, clipping and threw up the job. J. W. Roderick
combined business and pleasure last week and left home on Wednesday
morning for a trip east of the mountain. He visited and transacted
business on New Cree, at Knobley Stock Farm, and at Burlington,
returning on Saturday evening. Jim says he had an enjoyable trip.
Being an independent voter we have no right to meddle in the matter,
but would like to suggest to the Democrats of Mineral County the name
of Geo. B. Junkins of Hartmonsville, or Capt. J. W. Vandiver, of
Burlington for County Commissioner. They are both good men for the
position and we make this suggestion in order that the 604 dry--we
came never saying sober Republicans in Mineral County may have a
candidate that they can conscientiously vote for. The writer is still
keep batch.---------Uncle John
June 19- The late frosts did not do near as much damage here as was at first thought; the fruit is not injured and the potatoes, although frozen to some extent, are not injured; some of the beans and tomatoes were killed and the meadows were given a set back. The drouth was broken, here last Friday morning by a heavy shower and we have been heavy showers each day since. Last Sunday we had a heavy rain accompanied by a heave storm that uprooted trees and blew down quite a lot of fencing, but we heard of no hay stacks being blown down. It is now warm and vegetation is growing fine. Our better half returned home last Sunday we had our first square meal that evening that we have had for three weeks. Jack Fleming, our genial postmaster, left last Sunday morning to spend a few days with his brother Tom near Thomas. Howard Michael, of Hubbard is handing our the mail in Jack's absence. Adam Post, a cattle man of near Buckhannon, was through our neighborhood fist of the week looking for stock. He has bought all the calves he found for sale; amounting to near 100 head; also some other stock. He is paying good prices, we might say fancy prices for choice calves. I notice in the Tribune of recent date, that "A Voter" suggests the name of James E. Sheetz as a candidate for the House of Delegates. Now, I wish to say that I fully indorse the nomination. Jimmie was brought up right by the side of the writer and I know him to be clean, honest and upright man and a man fully competent to fill that important position. He is not a member of or agent for any trust or monopoly; but a hard working farmer..... and knows the needs of the laboring men of the state. We need more such men to legislate for us. Uncle John.
Westernport Md, June 10
The element that congregate here from all points within a radius of fifty miles is becoming a nuisance as well as a disgrace to the inhabitants of the tri-towns, who are subjected to insult and the use of obscene language while passing along the main thoroughfare of the town. It is almost an impossibility for the police to maintain good order, though Chief Brenan and Love are doing their duty in every respect without fear or favor. For example, on Sat night, about 8:30 o'clock, while the bridge and streets were thronged with people a man committed an awful act and when the officers were trying to make an arrest he started for the W Va side of the river with the lead flying fast after him. He escaped for the time, but will not always be this way, it is hoped.
