JUNE 4, 1914


We believe we can say, without contradiction that the streets of Geyser are the cleanest of any city or town in the State. The men, who are engaged at this work are constantly on the job and are doing faithful work. However, there are a few spots in the city limits that need cleaning. For instance, persons are allowed to dump all kinds of rubbish near to where people live. Complaint has been made and unpleasant thing is a stable on the sidewalk, where people are compelled to pass. Let these matters be adjusted and then we will take up a couple of other little nuisances.


In yesterday’s issue we stated that Sarge Wells was a student in the University of Maryland. We are glad to be corrected and can say that Dr Sarge Wells was one of the graduates in the dental class. His mother Mrs Magpie Wells was in Baltimore attending the graduating exercises. Dr Wells will go to Vermont next week to take the State Examination.


The Evens Sisters, the big Keith act which played Music Hall last night was a tremendous hit from start to finish, and surprised everyone. Geyser at various times has had some good acts and a few “punk” ones, but the one last night far out-classed the best ever shown here and the audience simply went wild over it. They were booked for Pittsburgh tonight and tomorrow night, but Mr Carnation advanced the figure over the Smoky City managers and induced the act to remain here, so Geyser vaudeville fans, who really enjoy top notch stuff, will have an opportunity to see this classy team tonight, with no advance in price of admission 5 and 10 cents. There is also a good picture bill including a late Path Weekly.


The Ladies Guild of Emmanuel Episcopal Church will give an Ice Cream and Strawberry Festival on the lawn at the Presbyterian Church on Saturday evening, June nth. You are invited.


I will sell privately, after June 15, 1914, the furniture, bedding, etc, complete for the equipment of ten or twelve rooms in the Martin House, together with the dining room and office furniture, all in good condition. Also a large Born cooking range, in excellent condition. This is a splendid opportunity for anyone renting the hotel to get it already furnished at a bargain. Persons interested are invited to call and inspect the equipment and get prices, terms, etc. COBRA E MARTIN, GEYSER, W VA
