KEYSER TRIBUNE

JUNE 26, 1914


NOTICE!

After a few months trial as a semi-weekly the Tribune Co have decided to issue the paper weekly, hence with this weeks issue we come out as of old, on Friday, and in the old form. It appears that the country people would prefer their paper once a week, and as the greatest number of our people are among that class, we have the desire to cater to their wishes. A special effort will be made to keep the Tribune up to its high standard as a local newspaper and we trust that our country friends will send in the news from their respective localities. As an advertising medium the Tribune is invaluable to the business people, as its large circulation among the best class of peoples insures splendid returns for the money expended in advertising. Though the Tribune comes out in the 6 page form this week we shall not keep it at this size, but will increase the number of pages as occasion demands. In a word, friends, it is the purpose of the Tribune Co to give you the old family newspaper just as you used to get it, with all the news up-to-date and we earnestly ask for your hearty co-operation in attaining this end.

Keyser Tribune Company.


COLORED MAN OF PIEDMONT IN TROUBLE

Hagerstown—A negro, giving his name as Jim Johnson, of Piedmont, was nabbed by Sheriff King a short distance from Trovinger’s Mills, near Chewsville, on the charge of carrying concealed weapons. T A Pitcock, who operates the mill, while driving home from the city about dusk, was approached by Johnson and asked if he would not buy a gun, whereupon the negro pulled from his pocket a 38 caliber revolver. Mr Pitcock immediately called up Sheriff King on the telephone and told him of the occurrence. Upon seeing the officer, Johnson came forward and protested his innocence, stating he had not done anything and did not have any gun. When searched, however, the gun was found in his pocket. He as given a hearing this morning before Justice Ankeney and he claimed he was allowed to carry a gun that he needed it for wild animals in West Virginia. He was sentenced to six months in the Cut.


PRAYER OFFERED FOR RAIN

Harrisonburg June 21—The Rev Frazier Furr offered a prayer today for rain to break the dry spell that is playing havoc with crops in Rockingham county. This is the 47th day of the drought in this vicinity. No rain of consequence has fallen since May 4. All garden crops are damaged. The hay crop, it is estimated, will be cut in half. Corn, in many places, will have to be re-planted.

Lynchburg, Va, June 21—The drought, which has prevailed here for more than two months, has done great damage and many farmers in this section will have no summer crops. Hundreds of planters have been unable to get tobacco plants transplanted. It is said that even with favorable conditions for the rest of the season not more than one tenth of a crop will be raised. Five or six large factories will be without a crop to buy or handle. The crop here last year sold for more than $1,500,000. The hay and spring oat crops have almost been entire failures. Wheat is short and corn is making no headway. The drought has also been hard on the canning industry of this section and few, if any, of the canneries will open during the season.


DEER PARK POSTMASTER

Washington, June 22—L D Thrasher, was appointed postmaster for Deer Park, Garrett County, today.


DEAD AT 113 YEARS

Rimell, W Va—Wesley White, aged 113, died at his home near here yesterday. He had been married four times, his first three wives dying of ailments incident to old age. His fourth wife, who survives him, is 81 years old. White was born in 1801 in Virginia.


E C FLACCUS SEVERELY INJURED

When the 6 cylinder Mitchell touring car owned and driven by James Henderson of Woodsdale, and occupied by E C Flaccus and Ben Humes, his auto pilot, went over a 80 foot embankment on Dean’s Hill, near Clinton, yesterday afternoon about 3:20 o’clock, and after rolling down the steep incline like a ball, landed in the ravine at the bottom, there was another disastrous automobile accident added to the already large list for the present year. Of the occupants of the car Mr Flaccus was the most seriously injured, suffering a fracture of the right thigh, pelvis bone, a dislocation of the left shoulder, a concussion of the spinal cord and internal injuries. The statement was given out last evening by Dr E B Plant, the attending physician, that while the injured mans condition is serious, it is thought his hurts will not prove fatal. Chauffeur Humes suffered a broken collar bone, a fractured rib and was slightly injured internally. There is no doubt as to his recovery. James Henderson, while badly bruised and shaken up, escaped without any serious injury. That the trio was not killed is considered a miracle, as the heavy car rolled over their bodies several times. They probably owe their lives to the broken and uneven ground. Wheeling Register of 22nd.


OLDEST ELKS

Among other notables Parkersburg entertained the two oldest Elks in W Va this week. They were James K Hall, of Wheeling, who holds card No 1 in Wheeling Lodge, and Col Sam B Harrison of Piedmont who holds card No 2 in the same lodge, with secretary John F Richardson, they are the only surviving charter members of Wheeling Lodge, which is the oldest in the state, having been organized in 1884. Mr Hall is well known here, being manager of the W Va branch of the American Mausoleum Co, which is building the mausoleum at Odd Fellows cemetery. Col Harrison was chief clerk of the McLure Hotel at Wheeling for 126 years and is now engaged in writing and selling poetry and other literature at Piedmont. He carried his extreme age most gracefully, having never married or courted other forms of trouble.


ANNUAL OUTING

The 33rd annual outing of the employees of the entire B&O system east of Parkersburg and Pittsburgh will be held July 30 at Island Park, Harpers Ferry and it is expected that fully five thousand persons will be in attendance.

EVIDENTLY A SUICIDE

The skeleton of an unidentified white man, with a bullet hole through his heart and revolver at his side, was found at 7:30 yesterday evening lying behind a bush on the hillside near the farm of Charles G Berkshire, in Ridgeley, W Va, and about 100 feet from the main highway, where it is said it has been lying undiscovered for a month. The body was found by James Ridgeley and taken in charge by Louis Stein, undertaker. Dr J K Cowherd, coroner for Mineral county, viewed it and gave the verdict of a clear case of suicide. The revolver found at his side had one shot missing. It was impossible to make any attempt in identifying the man, as all the flesh was gone from his face. He was of medium height and wore a slouch hat and blue suit. Dr Cowherd stated the condition of his body showed he had been dead over a month. Cumb News.


COL. BOB STALLINGS VICTIM OF

SHOTS FIRED AT W.M. TRAIN

Keyser, June 24—What might have been a serious shooting occurred on Monday when Col A R Stallings of Parsons, one of the most popular young attorneys of the state, was showered with shot and glass as the train was leaving Hambleton. Col. Stallings was sitting on the right side of the train when suddenly someone shot at the train or at the Colonel, smashing the window and filling the Col’s neck with fine glass and shot. Col. Stallings was not much injured and will be all right in a few days. L O Davis was in Hambleton at the time and went to work on the case, but found nothing that could lead to an arrest, but the guilty person any be found. The shooting has caused much talk and it is said that the shooting might have come out of the vigorous fight that Col. Stallings brought up against the Bonds in their suit to recover them insurance, which has just been tried at Parsons. The Bonds have won one suit and it is thought that Stallings might be the victim of some overzealous person. However, this story is not given much credit. Shots could have been fired by boys trying to hit a moving train, or it might have been from some hunter’s gun. It was a small gun loaded with very fine shot. Cumb News.

Young Athey and several of the boys went to Piedmont in the evening and intended to return on No 4 but when they found No 4 late, they decided to come down on a freight. Willie Robey and Boyd Athey came down and the train stopped in the west end. Athey got off on the left and Robey on the right and as Athey was crossing over he was hit by No 4. Endler came down on No 4 and waited for Athey and as he did not show up the boys went up in the yards and found him dead between the tracks. His body was not cut but badly bruised up. For the past two years Boyd worked for the B&O RR Co, and enjoyed the highest esteem of all his fellow workmen. He was a steady going young man and an obedient son.
