Huntington, Following a recent court decision that the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad must take up all ticket coupons, no matter who is holder, William Jackson, a porter on the railroad, is said to be $20,000 richer. He has gathered hundreds of coupons given him during the pendency of the suits to determine the validity of the 2 cent fare law, while the railroad was charging 3 cents a mile. Several other porters will be several thousand dollars richer, it is said, as a result in picking up the coupons thrown away by passengers. The railroad, knowing Jackson and others had thousand of these coupons, wanted to settle only with the original purchasers, but the courts have decreed otherwise.

  A female goddess created mankind, according to a tablet said to be 4,000 years old, which has just been translated by Dr Arno Poebel, of the University of Pennsylvania museum.
  The tablet was brought to the museum from Nippur, and, according to Dr Poebel, it is the oldest account that has been unearthed given a theory of the origin of the human race. He says the tablet was inscribed in Samurian, and believed that it may date back to 2500 B C, and is reasonably certain to be no later than 2100 B C.
  Other tablets that have been known for some time only to 700 B C. Another feature of the story as translated by Dr Poebel is that there was a special god for each of the first seven predeluvian cities.
  In many respects the accounts of creation and of the flood are similar to these given in Genesis, but in the newly discovered account the flood is represented as lasting for only 7 days, while Zingidda is the name given to the man who escaped in an ark.

  Fifty or more canning demonstrators will be held in the six counties of the state where the girls are organized into garden and canning clubs. This work was started in an experimental way last year and immediately met with the approval of the rural boys and girls. These clubs are entirely distinct from the corn clubs and have only begun to cover the state but already number 298 members in the six counties organized.
  During the next month girls' institutes will be held in the sections where canning clubs are organized and preliminary arrangements will be made for the canning demonstrations which are to follow at a later date. At these institutes the young people will be given an opportunity to tell how they are growing their one tenth acres of tomatoes and what success they are having. Picnic dinners will be the feature of the noonday sessions, after which the instructor from the Agricultural Extension Department will give explicit directions for the selection, preparation and canning of tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables.
  If facilities and time will permit, a demonstration on the canning of such vegetables as beans and beets will be given. The club rules is to each member to can a portion of the crop grown. It is hoped that this feature of the work will prove to be a powerful factor in the prevention of waste of food products on the farm and in the home.


"It seems to be generally true that the small farm, say 25 to 30 acres, where diversified general farming is followed ,represents the least profitable type of agriculture," says Prof. O M Johnson of the W Va College of Agriculture, after a number of weeks spent in making a detailed survey of farm conditions in several sections of the state. Wherever small farms of the size mentioned are being profitably operated, investigation will nearly always show that some specialized form of agriculture is being followed, either trucking, dairying, tobacco growing or some similar line. Where small, diversified farming is followed the farmers energies and skills are likewise diversified and scattered and little ability is acquired along any particular line. If diversified, farming is to be profitably carried out it must be done on a sufficiently large scale to occupy the farmers entire time and must be well enough financed to be able to utilize machine methods.


Merely as an indication of how extensively rural people of the state read the papers and how readily they take advantage of any opportunity to improve their farming methods, the Agricultural Extension Department of Morgantown announces that immediately following their notice in the newspapers of the state to the effect that aid will be given in starting alfalfa fields, requests began to come in with the first mails and have steadily increased since then. Of course it will be impossible to send out the inoculated, fertilized soil and seed to all the applicants or to make visits to the very large number who contemplate sowing larger fields but the department is doing everything that its funds will allow in the direction at the present time and hopes to be of service to the disappointed applicants in other ways.


  The conference on "The Country Church and Community Life" held at the summer school at Morgantown under the direction of the Agriculture College at the close of discussions and investigations lasting throughout two entire days, drafted the following resolutions indicating their position on the most important question:
  Whereas: It has become evident to the members of the Rural Life Conference of the W Va University assembled that more than 70 percent of the people of our state are living in a rural community, and Whereas: the University, the schools and the churches are together laboring to advance the community life of our people in the largest sense of that word, therefore.
  Be it Resolved: that the various colleges, schools and churches throughout the state takes such steps as may be necessary to arouse the interest of the people.
  We therefore recommend that the various colleges and normal schools of the state hold similar country church and rural life conferences and we further request that the different religious bodies include the topic in all convention programs.

(Signed) Rev O A Kelley, DD
Rev O G White
Rev P N McDonald
  In view of the above outlined attitude it is evident that the ministers are determined to make such advances as are possible towards the solution of this most vexatious problem-"How to improve rural conditions."
  The narration of conditions as presented by Dr Felton who has had wide experience in rural investigation work, was a revelation to many of the ministers present, and by way of contrast the descriptions of successful rural institutions scattered here and there, furnished inspiration and hope for better things to come in this state. If the movement thus started continues to grow in momentum it will indeed be far reaching in its effects and productive of such good.


Mr A D Williams, recently appointed to the newly created office of State Railway and Highway Commissioner, is arranging to open offices on the University Campus at Morgantown and take active charge of this line of work. Both the college of engineering and the college of agriculture are very much interested in the improvement of the roads of the state and some plan of co-operative action between the various forces will no doubt be put into effect. A number of counties have already made provisions for better roads and with this new specialized department working on the same problem it is hoped that something adequate may be accomplished to supplying W Va with roads more nearly suited to her needs. It is proposed to use convict labor in road construction work and after October 1st, 450 prisoners will be immediately available. A much larger number will be available at a later date.


Morgantown-Judge George C Sturgis received a letter last evening from H M Ogden, of the public service commission, saying that the commission will hold a meeting here on next Tuesday at 9 o'clock am. The application of the W Va development company to continue the construction of the dam across Cheat River, will be considered.

Charleston-With an single exception every local miners' union on Cabin creek reported tonight that they had ratified the terms of the agreement by which the long strike will be officially called off. The local at Ohley where strikers shot up the town a month ago, rejected the proposition by a vote of 20 to 17, most of the members being absent. Another vote will be taken within a day or two, and it is expected this local, too, will ratify the agreement. The agreement extends to April 1, 1915, but of there is then no increase in the scale in Kanawha field the agreement continues until April 1, 1916,. Besides an increase of from 12 to 15%, in wages due to the increase of about one cent per ton and the change from the long to the net ton the agreement provides a nine hour day, semi-monthly pay, that all grievances be submitted to an arbitration committee of two. One representing the operators and one the miners, they to select a third in case of disagreement, and the miners to continue at work pending the investigations. No discrimination against union or non union men, check weighmen, miners to have the right to trade where they please, and many provisions relative to the manner of working coal and for which employees may be discharged.
