B&O SHOP NOTES
Twenty three car-loads of lumber were unloaded by the Store-room Department during December. The smallest car contained 11,000 feet while the largest contained 31,000.
Santa Claus certainly was good to "Uncle Pete." He asked for 15 caboose doors and received 24, also a good supply of sash. After the doors were received Uncle Pete assisted by his son Re-Pete stored them away over head. After the last door was put away Uncle Pete said, "Well the last one is up there," and his son answered, "and so am I." Re-Pete had stacked the doors all around him so he could not get down.
Helper Geo Householder did not report for duty Monday morning and our tool driver Mr Joe Dickle was called upon to take his place. Joe filled his new position with grace and style.
Re-Pete finished a warehouse truck Monday. Painters will paint it, and stamp the weight.
Foreman E A Rice, who has been off duty nursing a vaccinated arm several days, was calling on some of the boys at noon Tuesday. He says with force that the Giants will win the pennant in 1913.
Mr Chas M Fletchar, agent for the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co, was saw in and about the shop Tuesday.
Tuesday at noon the Rowlesburg wreck crane came to town and put a Long John on that was off on the 7.
All day Tuesday we saw men with their left hand on their hearts and their right hands perpendicular and saying, "Never Again."
The old saying is what you do on the first day of the New Year you will do all the year. Joe Dickle didn't work on the first we noticed.
Foreman H W Woolfe is back in the harness again after being off sick
We accepted a kind invitation to visit the store room, work shop and office now being fitted up for electricians W T Wells and Billy Liller. The building being fitted up was once the abode of the old air compressor, and the work is being done by the above mentioned mechanics. A great many shelves are being put up along the north-east wall of the building, also in the center will be put a large work table made of the finest lumber obtainable at the car shop. In the west corner over looking the engine room will be the office. This will be strickly up to date containing a calendar and one lead pencil.
Groundhog day will be the next Holiday boy's.
We have not time and space to say that Billy Liller has put a new torch on the merry-go-round.
Keyser is all excitement today. Around both precincts are crowds of men talking about what has been done in the past year and what might have been done. There are good tickets in the field, either of which would take very good care of Keyser this year. If one desired to scratch he could select any man from ether ticket and be sure he is right.

THE CONFEDERATE VETERAN
The United Daughter of the Confederacy are working hard to erect a fitting Monument at Keyser, W Va, in memory of the Confederate soldiers who fought and died for what they understood to be right. This undertaking is a worthy one and should be encouraged and helped by every citizen of the town, and anyone can give them a years subscription to the "Veteran," nothing like it in the whole country-A clear, bright, interesting magazine, worth more than a dollar a year to any one who reads it. Be kind enough to help the Daughters build the Monument and the people of Keyser will always be proud of it.
