MAY 29, 1914


Clarksburg—The 17 year locust has already made its appearance in Clarksburg and vicinity. Sugar maple trees in yards and along streets of the residential section are covered with huge swarms of them. English sparrows and other birds are eating them in large quantities, sometimes clearing the trees of them in the early part of the day, but in the evening fresh swarms come out of the ground and crawl up into the trees.


The advance guard of the 17 year old locusts have struck W Va and the attacks on the trees and all kinds of growing things have already been reported by the farmers. The locusts are more numerous than ever known in this State. Various plans are being made to fight the insects.


On information from Sheriff Scott, of Oakland, asking the chief of police to arrest two men charged with robbing Castile’s saloon in Oakland, Chief of Police Davis and B&O Detective Coffman went out and found them along the county road. They are T A Gallager and C C Shaw. The two men were placed in the county jail to await the arrival of the Maryland sheriff. The men had plenty of booze and the chief captured a few full quarts of popular brands. The money was also found on them.


Herbert Montgomery of Westernport was yesterday held for the action of the grand jury on the charge of the embezzlement of large sums of money belonging to the Loyal Order of Moose, of Westernport. States Attorney Frank A Perdew prosecuted the case. Montgomery was recently tried of the same charge, but an agreement was made whereby Montgomery was to pay back the deficiency. However he was again arrested last week on the charge of embezzlement of an additional item of $183 in addition to the deficiency stated. At a late hour last evening Montgomery had not secured bail and was still in custody.


Wheeling—Those who are interested should inform themselves as to what a cigarette really is. Judge Alan H Robinson has defined the word for once and for all time, or at least for as long as he remains in office. In fining the Athenian Amusement Co for selling to minors Judge Robinson ruled that “little cigars” are cigarettes in the eyes of the law. The court said: “A cigarette is a small cigar made of finely cut tobacco rolled in an envelope of tobacco, corn husk or thin paper, so as to form a cylinder open at both ends.” Those who insist that the government stamp on little cigar boxes is stamped “cigars” gives them the right to sell had better refrain from selling the cigars as cigarettes. Prosecutor Addleman has expressed an intention to demand the arrest of all violators.


Piedmont—William Elliott of Burlington aged 46 years, was killed about 11 o’clock this morning in the cut just west of Beryl or two miles south of Piedmont on the B&O railroad by train No 48 westbound. “Parcel Post Train.” It was clearly an accident and Dr Z T Kalbaugh, his brother and another witness was examined by J Forsyth Harrison, acting coroner, who deemed an inquest unnecessary, and at the request of his family, no inquest was held. Elliott was a coal miner by trade and was a member of the order of Owls. His funeral took place Thursday morning at 10 o’clock from the residence of his brother at Bloomington, Md. Deceased was an unmarried man. It was the case of trains, one west, one east, and he apparently did not see or hear the west bound one. His body was not mangled and there was not any blame attached to anyone for the sad accident.


The annual literary contest of the Keyser High School was held Monday night. The judges were Prof C R Clarke, principal of the Piedmont High School, Prof Anthony, of the Keyser Prep School, and Miss Beulah McNemar, elocutionist. The judges decided in favor of Miss May Paris of the Cicero Society, who recited “The Exile.” Miss Elizabert Glover for the Appalachian Society, recited “The Brokee Lorgnette.” Miss Alma Peters, of the Appalachian Society, as essayist won, her subject was “Alcohol and the Community.” Miss Julia Wright of the Cicero Society, read an essay on “Athletics in the Local High School.” The question “Resolved” that Labor Unions as they exist today, are on a whole, beneficial to Society,” was debated. J Clark Bright and Ernest Shore, represented the affirmative and Howard Wells and Frank Cheshire, the negative. The affirmative won.

All day Thursday could be seen a crowd of Keyser business men working the road near the city. Thursday you know, was “Good Roads Day” that’s the reason. “Old Sol” was in accord with the movement and did his part by keeping in the background, thus the workers were relieved from his furious outpour of heat evidence in the last few days in this vicinity. The movement is a good one and were it possible for everyone to put in if only a half a day three or four times a year, we venture to say the object would be accomplished, which it the end would be greater than is now anticipated. Good roads, more of them, everywhere.

We hope our road supervisors will arrange soon to smooth down the high ridges of sod and rocks which they scraped into the roads when they worked them a few days ago. It is the opinion of many good people that the roads are in much worse condition than before they were worked. If the money spent in hauling men and scraping over the roads and piling up sod and mud in the middle of same, was used in hauling gravel for making permanent roads, we would soon have good roads. The plan now followed of going along the roads in the spring of the year and scraping a lot of sod, sticks and rocks into the middle of the roads and leaving it there to be worn down by horses and vehicles through the summer, strikes us as being an absolute waste of money. We hope in time that our road men will look at the matter in the proper light and haul more gravel on the roads and do less scraping. In this way the work will be more permanent and we will have better roads.

We do not censure anyone for we do not know if anyone is directly responsible, but it looks like a reflection upon our civilization to say nothing of our christianity, that a poor orphan boy should die for want of attention.
