Pennsylvania State Forestry Academy.
of Mont Alto, Pa., sent her lads
to Shephcrdstown last Thursday night
U> engage our Collegian team in the
winter sport of basketball. They came
with determination and went back with
the victory, 36 to 22. The game was
much closer than the score would indf-;
cate. The visitors were the first to
draw blood, when Lott, their star cen-1
ter, dropped one in from the center of
the floor. From then until near thq
close of tlie first half the home team led
16 to 12. With but a few seconds left
to play, the visitors tied the count and
the whistle blew with the score 16 all.
The second half opened up with the
visitors caging two straight goals. The
local aggregation tightened up and held
the game within a basket's reach until
the last five minutes of play, when
a sudden burst of speed the visitors
ran the count up to 32. Legge for the
home team shot a pretty one with two
men guarding him and then Banks
did the same stunt, and it looked as if
the home boys were due for a victory,
but the best they could do was only 22.
Knott was out of the game and Myers

The noted Keyser Collegian quint
was in town Tuesday night in the persons
of Parrish, Gibson, Slocutn, Montgomery
and Schaffer. The local management
booked this game for the sole
purpose of showing the local fans
i what a real basketball aggregation
, looks like. It is needless to say any- j
thing of the wtork of the local outfit, I
: with the possible exception of McKee,
{ who caged eight baskets during the
contest. The visitors are all star play- i
ers, each and every one of them having
; played his allotted time on a uni;
versity team, or others equally as good.
The game opened with the above named
Mr. Parrish dropping the ball through
the net with a succession of rapid passing.
It will be well to note here that
this same Parrish, center, never shtoots
the ball into the basket, but drops it |
eentlv to its final resting nlnce; the I
I reason thereof being that he is head I
> and shoulders above all on the floor. I
He counted twelve times for his team ;
by this method, while the Messrs. Gib- j
son and Shaffer scored eighteen and :
fifteen baskets respectively. Slocum;
was a little off in his shooting^ and :
only made six. This was without a
doubt the cleanest game that has ever
been played in Shepherdstown, with the
best team in all this part of the country
as an opponent. They are worthy of
the name that they hold, recently
having defeatd the aggregation representing
the West Virginia University.
The Keyser boys are on a thirty-five
days trip, playing every afternoon 01;
night. After this introduction we may
as well break the news of the outcome
of the game, which when made known
will prove the fast work that the
Keyser contingent exhibited. The
final score was 110 to 42.
Friday night the attraction will be
the team representing Cumberland
Valley State Normal School, of Shippensburg,
Pa. This team will be more
in our class than the Keyser team, so
don't fail to come to the community
hall at 8 o'clock and see another good
exhibition of the winter sport.
Monday night the Collegians journey
to Frederick, Md., to engage the Y team
of that place in a game of basketball
that promises to be a close and exciting

credited by most scribes to have one
of the best aggregations of basketers
in that part of Pennsylvania, but the
mountain contingent was too much for
them. This same Waynesboro team
comes to Shepherdstown, on Friday,
February 10, to play a return game
with the Collegians in the community
building. Comparison of the scores
, that Shepherdstown and Waynesboro,
against the Keyserites-shows that the;
coming game will be close and hard
! fought. We managed to roll up more |
.points against the Keyser team than*
the Pennsylvania lads.

Roads. Roads. Roods.
In a Baltimore paper a few days ago
I found an article about the *-ay the
Kent county, Md., people are going to
have roads that they can travel all the
year round.
They have the privilege of paying
taxes to keen nn a sn-ralleH State tvi.
tem, but they find that for practical
purposes for all the people it does not
answer, just as we in West Virginia
will find out. As a starter, you have
read that our State authorities from
their offices in Charleston have announced
they will build a road between
Martinsburg and Charles Town that '
will be used less bv the people of-the
two counties than any other route they
could have selected.
A woman in Kent county got the people
interested in a section of two miles
and they got together, white and col- j
orcd, men and women, with no cost to j
anybody excepting a day's labor or its
A colored preacher led sixty negroes
in digging gravel for six days. The
farmers furnished the teams, the women
supplied a free dinner each day.
The two miles of road, built in ten
days, are valued at $3,400, and have
proven such a success that this whole
county lias become interested, a mass
meeting was called, and they plan to
build five miles of road like these two
miles in each of the five districts of the
county per year, and thus in about five
years nave good roaas in tne wnoie
They recommend that the road!
scraper be dbne away with, as if
answers no permanent purpose. Many
of our people are of the same opinion
abbut that scraper. It is said that in
some places it has torn part of the road
bed up and does not open the ditches to
drain the water. It seems they have
gravel pits scattered around over the
county, so it is simply a matter of
drainage and hauling gravel.
It looks like it was up to the people
of Jefferson county, or at least Shepherdstown
district, to follow this example
of the Kent county people if
they want smooth roads. The undertaking
is not nearly as big a one
with us, as we have a good solid
foundation on nearly all of our roads
and in most cases need only the water
drained off and holes filled up, and as
we have plenty of fine crushed stone at
Kearneysville and Engle, we would
not have to dig gravel, and the
cost of this stone would probably not
be any more than it would cost to dig
gravel if we had it. Perhaps the county
would pay for the stone and have
a man go over it and level it after it
becomes partly packed. ?
The three miles of road but the
Charles Town pike would be a fine piece
to be treated that way. It seems this
road was patched up from Halltown
to a point some distance this side of
uvula. Wonder why they stopped
there, as this end of it is something
As a concrete proposition, if the people
who use that road decide to go
after it and drain it and put crushed
stone on it, although I do not have occasion
to use it often, I will have my
team haul several toads of stone from
either Kearneysville or Engle.
Terrible Disaster In Washington.
A terrible disaster occurred in Washington
City' last Saturday night, when
the roof of the Knickerbocker Theatre,
a moving picture house, collapsed
from the weight of two feet of snow
upon it and fell upon the audience.
The roof of concrete, the iron framework
that supported it, and the balcony
that extended over a part of the
theatre crashed down upon the defenseless
people beneath, burying
them under a mass of concrete that
could not be moved for many hours,
the last victim not being extricated
until nine o'clock Sunday morning.
There were killed Outright, or so badly
hurt that they died soon afterward,
108 men, women and children, while
perhaps as many more were injured
in various ways. The theatre was
located in the finest residential section
of the city, and many persons of
prominence lost their lives. Among the
killed was Miss Helen Dortch, of
Rerryville, Va.. who ?'oc ?n :?-?

in an art school in Washington.
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Shepherd, of
Shepherdstown, had gone tJ Washington
to spend the week-end with friends,
who live within a short distance of the
Knickerbocker. Mr. and Mrs. Shepherd
about nine o'clock started to make
a call, and found themselves at the
theatre just a few moments after the
accident occurred. They saw some of
the victims emerge from the place,
bloody and disheveled and dazed, and
they were able to render some slight
assistance, among others to a boy who
had both arms broken. They said
that it was a half hour or more before
the appalling extent of the disaster was
realized. Many of the victhns were so
badly crushed and mangled that it was
almost impossible to recognize them
Mr. and Mrs. Shepherd were at the
scene an hour or more, when the police
lines were established and only
physicians and nurses and the police
and workers were nl1nw<?H ??? ?<?

The parents of Miss Katrina BaumRardner.
domestic science teacher at
Shepherd College, live within a btock
of the theatre, and they saw many of
the hearf-rending episodes connected
with the disaster. Mrs. Baumgardner
helped to give first aid to many of the
injured in a drug store adjoining her
home and worked until late in the night.
Many pitiful scenes came under her
observation, as relatives recognized
those who were maimed or came to the
realization that their loved ones were
in agonv under the ruins or had met
sudden death.

tuberculosis, aged 18 years, 5 months H
and 5 days. Kj
Miss Engle had been in failing hcaltH
since last summer, and was admitted
to the sanitoriam about six weeks ago. Hi
it was hoped for the benefit of her re-H
covery, but after entering there she be-Hj
came very much worse, failing rapidly H
until the end peacefully came. At thtH
age of 12 years she united herself withHj
the M. P. Church at Engle, and hidK
si nee lived a beautiful Christian life. It H
is known during the former days of lie; H
illness, being unable to walk alone te H
church, she was assisted, interested H
and feeling it her duty to serve het H
Master. Her funeral was held in the Hj
M. P. Church, January 4th, conduct- H
ed by her pastbr Rev. R. E. Simms, who H
remarked she would be so greatly miss- H
ed in the church, as she was alwayd H
faithful in attending and ready to per-Hj
form her duty as organist and Sunday
school teacher. She was a bright andH
capable young girl and was highly re-H
spected. in the community where she Jj
lived, and her death has brought sor-H
row and much sympathy to the beiH
reaved family, this being the third

seems strange those who are old aniM
weary of life's cares and who long for H
