Who are They??The Parkers
burg Journal says a family in Par
kersburg has been discovered to be
In a terribly destitute condition.?
When the officers called at the
bouse they found "a daughter,
probably twenty yearn of age, de
mented, lying in a cold room with
scarcely any clothing, covered only
with a miserable piece of rag car
pet. The father who has work, it
in said, drinks all his earnings, and
biii family are suffering. The wife,
whose name is wilheld because she
wan well known to many of our
citizens iu furmer days, .having
beun rawed in Belpre, where she
was the daughter of a prominent
citizen. She staled to the officer
that they bad come here from Poiul
Pleasant where they had a farm
and were considered well to do.?
Infoimation received from that
place Corroborates her statement as
to the furm and further states that
it is valued at 87,fi00. The de
parture of the family from Point
Pleasant was very mysterious, no
cause being assigned for the action
and even stranger is it tluit they
should remain in Parkersburg suf
fering when plenty awaits ibem
at their former home. Altogether
it is a queer case."
Tho following frolll Ibe Wetzel
Democrat, will apply with much
force to this place: "When skating

young ifleh were drawn away from
bar rooms and pool and billiard ta
ble*. Of courts, when they came
to tho rink they niet the charmers
of the o her rex, and as a most
uatural consequence, thore were
thine? kindled that otherwise may
never have burned. A< ft result,
some three or four girls have con
tracted mesalliances, tome half
dozen giddy wivoa have gone oil
with roller mashers, several fair
ones have ppruined iheir pretty
ankles, and here and there a ten
der leg hat been broken, all of
which has been reported by the
newspapers. And now come the
preachers and denounce this new
invention of Ihe enetfiy and there
is a hue and cry against roller
skating because of these things and
their paialyzing efluct upon the
annual revivals of religion. lt?
fact there is notfiihg that pleases
young people and affords amuse
ment which may not be Construed
into a sin, and if rollor skating
does interfere with the anuual re
vival!, it ought to bo stopped; for
there are people who think ffief
stand no chauce of getting to heaven
except they bo "converted" once a
yoar. We say this with #11 respect'
to them and with no reference at
all to those real Christians who
stand by their religion in hot wea

at first was not regarded as serious, but
as time rolled on tho bronchial trouble
increased, aud in its iusidious, onward
march she becaum a constant and great
sufferer, and continued to suffer inlonso
ly until life's latest moment. Some
twelve hours before her death, whilst
suffering with a terrible paroxysm of
coughing, she said to the writer: "I

Fancy skating at City Hall Fri
day evening,
A Chinese bride tUs attired iu a
"plain bi, trimmed with a rare old
toyah, while the trousers were of
three full lengths of yellow sigee."
It has often pccurred to us that
trousers of yollow sig'oc, and a hi
Gllcd with rare old toyah, would be
a lovely costumo for a bride. A
silver kiki in the hair and a gold
tumtu around thd ncck would ma
terially increase the offectiv^'css
of the costume, we thiuk.
There will be plain and fancy,
skuting at the City Hall on Friday
even'ng, February 27il?.
MIfs Rhoda (jteenbergen, Mr?.
Chas. Beale, Misses Ilcboccu and
Ella Bealo, Mi?B Ella Neale, Miss
Mary Moore, Miss Miitie Easlham,
Mr. and Mrs. Peter Couch, Mr. W.
S. Spencer and Mr. Robert Hutch
inson, of this county, formed a gay
party of excursionists and left on
the 5 o'clock train last evening tu
visit the New Orleans Exposition.
We pray they may have a safe
journey wrought with many pleas
ures in tho Sunny South.
Go to the Oily llall Friday eve
ning and see the expert skating
by A. E. Guyman.
The Point I'leaaant Skating
Rink occupies the hall over tie
Capehart store hoUi-e. The room
is 27 by 100 feet. Mr. G. T. Smith
is the manager. Oar yonng peo
ple can now take their spare
change and enjoy . themselves.
Itoller skating is getting to be
quite pupular, and wo suppose our
people will soon be as, crajy over
this amusement as aro the people
of other towns.
Remember Riuk to nigVt at City
Hall. Point Pleasant Orchestra
will furnish music.
The tltkting riuk at City Hail
was jam full pn Saturday afternoon
of our yotiajfsociety folks, who had
a merry time. Some of our skaters
are improving fast and will be pre
pared to skate with the best of
them presently. Our only unfa
vorable Criticism is that tbey skate
as if fur life, in faot, gome of the
boys remind us of the pictures of
Canadian skaters chased by wolves
thai we have saeu in our child
hood.'
