Night came on without his return, and some of the neighbors were called by phone, but they had not seen him. His wife received a letter from him the last of the week some place in Virginia, stating, so we are told, that he was never coming back, and it was no use for her to write to him, for he would not answer her letters, and said he left her and his children in the care of the Lord. No one knows any cause for his strange actions, unless that he lost his reason over the Socialist Party. His family has the sympathy of every one.
We received many cards upon the anniversary of our birth from friends of the Golden Sun of Colorado to the silvery rippling waters of the Potomac. We desire to thank everyone for their kind words. We know that no one would ever regret sending us a card if they knew the joy it gave to receive them. And if there is a reader of The Tribune that wishes a card from us on their birthday, if she be a lady, she need not give her age, we will cheerfully return the kindness shown us.
We have been a reader and a subscriber of The Tribune of nearly 40 years, and the greater part of the time one of its correspondents. If we have contributed anything that has given any pleasure to its many readers we feel that our items have not been in vain.

Engineers in charge of the Magnolia cut-off improvement of the B&O, one of the largest engineering feats underway in this country, report that work is progressing rapidly and the task is about 40 per cent completed. Much of the heavy work of tearing away the mountain to reduce grades and eliminate curves is well advanced and much of the masonry work is done. A section of the work involving heaviest construction is that which includes the elimination of the Doe Gully Tunnel, which is being made an open cut. It is expected the roof of the tunnel will be removed in a week or two.

R E L Strider, Rector
The Christmas exercises at the M E Church, South, on last Sunday morning and evening were enjoyed by a large congregation, both at morning and evening services. The service consisted principally of music, vocal and instrumental. The orchestra was at its best, and for the special music of this occasion showed the able leadership of Prof McIlwee and long hard practice of the members. The brief remarks by the pastor were in harmony with the service and of much interest. The whole service was very pleasing and interesting, and we trust will be an inspiration of the Sunday school lasting throughout the year of 1914.
Following is the program of the Union Week of Prayer services. The general theme of the week will be The Church and The Unchurched.

Thursday, Jan 8th, Presbyterian Church, Subject, Why should Smith go to church? Speaker, Rev R G Hammond

Mr J A Tachuor, assistant master mechanic for the B&O at this place, has been promoted to master mechanic at Washington, Ind, which is the second largest shop on the B&O system. He has been in the employ of the B&O but about three years and was promoted solely on his merit. He has not been in Keyser very long, but during his stay here he has effected the organization of the working force and improved the facilities for doing the work, in such a manner as to show his wonderful ability. He came into the employ of the B&O from Connellsville, and was formerly with the L S & M S RR, and wherever he goes he is rapidly promoted. He leaves here with the best wishes of the employees with whom he had dealings, having made many staunch friends among the employees from the laborer to those higher up, and while they regret having him go, are well pleased to feel that he has received a well deserved promotion.
The First National Bank of Keyser has filed its application with the Treasury Department to join the Federal Reserve System under the new currency bill. This is the first bank in this section to take action and the tenth in W Va. The largest and strongest banks in the US are joining and the success of the new system seems assured.
Baltimore, Md, Jan 1, 1914
To all employees:
Once more I wish to extend to all employees of The Baltimore and Ohio System, my best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year, and at the same time I wish to assure all of my appreciation of their loyal service and support during the year just ended. The year of 1913 has been one of unusual difficulties for the Baltimore and Ohio company. Never in its entire history has it met with such great disaster and was occasioned by unprecedented floods of last March. However, except for a few bridges, which have not yet been permanently rebuilt, the damaged caused by the high water has been repaired, but the making of the necessary repairs together with the loss of business during the interruption has imposed an excessive and most unusual burden upon the company during the last nine months. It is to be regretted that the smaller volume of business to be handled at the present time has made it necessary to reduce the force and curtail expenses as much as possible in all directions. It is hoped that conditions will soon mend to such an extent that the business of this company may again be on the basis of one year ago and the forces fully restored. While under existing conditions the most rigorous economy is necessary. It should be clearly understood that nothing is to be done which will in the slightest degree adversely effect the safety of operations, and in that connection I wish to again urge the request contained in my message one year ago today, that all keep constantly in mind during the year just begun, the importance of Safety First. Safety first means not only safety for the traveling public and our patrons generally, but also safety for each individual employee. Much has been done in that direction, I am glad to say, during the past year, and I hope we have the hearty and active co-operation of all during the year just begun.
