school teacher, who is in love with Cam Arbogast, the artistic and
sanitary plumber at the county seat, after listening to the County
Superintendent's speech at Farmer's Institute, has been discussing
ways and means to make the school have a greater success. Herbefore
things have been moving along on the same old lines and it has to
stop. She has gathered up all the empty tomato cans that the Italians
left behind and is making individual drinking cups for each scholar.
These cans hold about one quart and each child is supposed to bring a
can of water from home every morning. This will do away with the
water bucket which they are told is nothing more than a germ
incubator. Not only will it get rid of this eye sore, but there will
be no change of water which so often has bad effects on the drinker.

RIDGELEY W VA
Sept 19 - The County Commissioners for
this county met in special session Mon at Keyser for the purpose of
making the desired change in the county road at this place, in and
along the proposed new line of the West Md. After considerable
discussion by the company's attorney, Mr Richmond, and the attorney,
Mr Morrison, in behalf of the Ridgeley Bros, the court decided to
change the county road from its present location to the following
route: Down mineral St to Blocher, out Blocher to Mulligan, then up
Mulligan to the present location near the Blue Bridge. a subway is to
be built under the Western Md railroad that will accommodate the
Ridgeley electric railway line. Work is to be started on this change
within the next 30 days and it is to be macadamized and at the
expense of the Western Md Railroad co.

AFFLICTION OF YOUNG BANE
Keyser Tribune: Charles W Bane, who
until recently resided in Washington, and upon Sept 23, feeling
inspired of a nervous and mental collapse, adjusted all business
affairs, and informed his sister, Miss Bessie Bane, that he was going
over to Martinsburg to spend a few weeks with his father for a rest,
arriving in that city Sat pm at his father's home. His father
detected a nervous break down, consulted a physician, who advised him
to take a quiet rest and used all plans to divert his mind from his
worry. On Sun, rising at the usual hour he spent the morning in an
almost normal condition with the family, conversing upon family and
business affairs. Sun pm, he accompanied his parents on an outing,
returning home at 5 o'clock, which he seemed to enjoy very much. Upon
retiring, at his request, he occupied a bed sleeping beside his
father. Mon at 4 am, he became suddenly insane and despite all that
human skill could do, he so continued until Tues morning when he was
conveyed to the State Hospital at Weston. The cause of his
derangement so far as is known was overstudy, mental exhaustion and
spiritual delusions, superinduced by an invention he had recently perfected.
