Yesterday afternoon Mrs Wm R Berg of McCoole came to this office just before going to press and left a notice about a lost purse. She was so distressed about the loss of somewhere of about $40 and valuable papers that she went home and took to her bed. In less than two hours after the paper was distributed, this office was given a tip to as to the finder as there was a witness when the purse was picked up on the street in a few minutes after it was lost. Mr Berg came to Keyser, where he was joined by Night Chief Batdorf and B&O special officer E B Kinney, and they took him to the home of Harry Slaver, a well-known B&O RR man living on G Street. The purse was identified and was soon in the hands of the owner. It contained nearly $40 in money and some valuable papers. Part of the money belonged to Mrs Berg's brother, Edward Morris. Mr Slaver said that during the evening he had also learned of the owner's ad, and intended to deliver the purse to the Mineral Daily News office this morning. This surely points to prompt results possible from The News ads.

Ever since the Suffragist parade in Washington on March 3, there has been a general complaint of their treatment by the crowd. At the time various statements were made as to the ill treatment and insults heaped upon the women. These facts, we are convinced they are facts, are proven by statements of responsible Keyser people. For instance, Mr H G Steorts says he saw a man in uniform, not in line but with a number of comrades viewing the parade, break away from his fellows, rush on the marching hosts of women, gather a handsome young woman in his arms, force her to the sidewalk and kiss her, then carry her back to the parade line. When a policeman attempted to interfere, the soldiers forced him bodily out into the street and told him to "git." Mr Steorts asserts he saw various other insults heaped upon the women.

Today while engaged in repair work on a loaded steel car in the B&O Keyser yards, J H Duncan, a young man living on Spring street, was caught and badly injured.

Today the Mineral Daily News again greets its readers. From the present outlook, the publisher and editor, both men well known to the citizens of this section in newspaper work, announce in good faith that they expect it to be permanent, the short suspension, only having given time for necessary rehabilament. The sum of the paper will be to give as far as practicable all local and state news, with the latest out of the ordinary happenings abroad. The grand possibilities of Keyser and contiguous territory, particularly orcharding, will be liberally exploited. Especially, this paper will stand for the highest possible standard for morals and government, at all times keeping carefully aloof from neighborhood quarrels and political sectionalism. The watchword shall be "Help build up your community by telling of the good things thereof." Upon the encouragement we receive within the possible field of circulation will largely depend our success. If patronized as a local advertising medium, that always has and will do so much of a general character free, and kept informed of the happenings of each community, then our burdens will be lessened and our patrons will have a far better paper.


With this issue The Mineral Daily News begins the publication of the New Charter, involving Keyser and South Keyser. In sections it will be published in succeeding issues of this paper until all, every single word of the text, will be given. It is such vital importance of the voters of these two boroughs that they familiarize themselves with the matter upon which they must pass by their ballots on the second Tuesday in May, that we earnestly request every reader of the paper to preserve each copy, keep a file of it for study and reference until you are thoroughly familiar with every detail thereof. It is a matter of too grave importance to pass by upheeded!
