RESOLUTIONS

The following resolutions were adopted by the Ladies Mite Society of the Keyser Presbyterian Church:

The members of the Society desiring to express their great sorrow and loss at the death of their beloved President, Miss Margaret Sheetz, who died April 24th,  1914, in the 71st year of her life, and their sincere appreciation of her sweet Christian character and bowing to the will of Him who doeth all things well.

Therefore: Be it resolved by the Mite Society of the Keyser Presbyterian Church:

First: In the death of “Miss Maggie,” as she was lovingly familiarly known to us all, this Society has suffered a great loss, she being our honored President for more than a score of years during all those years, her wise councils, tast gentle forbearance and unwavering faith in her Redeemer were an inspiration to all. Second: That in her life, Miss Maggie Sheetz exhibited a womanly modesty, refinement and culture that all might emulate; that in 32 years of constant work as teacher in the Primary Department of our Public School, these virtues were of untold power for good in the lives of the little ones she loved and taught. As a member of our Church since girlhood, she was always regular in attendance, faithful as Sunday School teacher, loyal and generous to all Church causes.

Third: That we extend to the members of her family our heart felt sympathy, and commend them to the love and comfort of that Saviour in whom their loved one has fallen so peacefully asleep.

Fourth: That these resolutions be spread upon like minutes of the Society and also published in the papers of the town.

A mass meeting was held here Tuesday afternoon to take steps to prevent the County Court from building a bridge across Patterson Creek at the Davis Ford, as a bridge at the ford is not needed and would benefit only a few families who live in the neighborhood and would cost the taxpayers over $5000.00 to build. It was decided to bring suit in the Circuit Court of this county to obtain an injunction against the building of said bridge. The majority of the tax payers in this end of the county are very much opposed to the building of this bridge, and several weeks ago sent petitions to the County Court, containing about 200 names protesting against their action in this matter, but the court ignored the petitions and proceeded to let the contract for the building of the bridge. It is to be hoped that the injunction can be obtained and the money used in building better roads, for many of our roads are in terrible condition and getting worse all the time.
