MINERAL DAILY NEWS
MAY 21, 1914
No new cases of scarlet fever have been reported recently, and as far as we can learn those who did have it are well. In all there were only eight cases reported. However, the town is full of French measles and the children do not mind having them, they are out in three daythe children, we mean. Keyser seems to be in a very health condition.
The time for the Chautauqua is drawing near and the committee in charge are looking for a suitable place to hold it. They invite the citizens of Keyser to select the location, and the News invites a discussion of same in its columns. The baseball grounds at the Prep school has been mentioned, and the vacant lots on the East side of Main street owned by Atty H G Fisher have also been suggested. What do you think?
Court officers stated today that proceedings had commenced here to recover for the son of Lucien P Smith, who went down with the Titanic, a part of his fathers estate. Mrs Smith, who is the daughter of Congressman James A Hughes of Huntington, W Va, gave birth to a son a few weeks after the sinking of the vessel. Representative Hughes took out letters of administration yesterday filing a bond of $20,000. It is said that Smiths relatives assert he left no estate, having an allowance of $500 while he lived.
