Mr. Haley told of frequently seeing the little building at V hite Post used by Washington ?hen a surveyor for Lord Fairfax and I of many other experiences that remind of Washington's association with tlit Valltv of Virginia. Yet one thing caused him to fall just a little short of the highest possible appreciation; so tar as tie knew, Washington never mentioned Shephcrdstown in his writings. A biography of Lowell was read by Yolande Malone, after which Isabel .Martin recited the Prelude to the Vision of Sir Launfal. Robert Smith gave Lowell's short poem, Aladdin, ar.d Christine Walper, The Shepherd of King Admetus.

Marten, passed peacefully a*ay at her home in Shepherdstown last Thursday night just a. midnight. Death was to her a welcome relief from great weariness of the hesh, for she had been a sufferer for long and weary months. Mrs. Marten became ill about eighteen months ago, and though it was thought she could not live more than a tew weeks, so strong was her vitality and so tenacious her ho>d upon life, a year and a-half passed beiore death brought her release. At times she suffered greatly, and more than once it was thought her death was a matter of hours, but she rallied again and again and renewed her strength. Through her long illness she kept brave and cheerful, and when the end finally approached she expressed her willingness to answer the call of her Saviour. With Christian resignation she put her earthly ! affairs in order and gave to her loved ones wise counsel and godly instruction. Few persons in our community will be missed to a a mil.- ^^ ~ Mrs. Marten. All her life was spent in Shephcrdstown. From her earliest youth she was interested in our town attairs and was always ready to lend a helping hand in our community enterprises. She could be counted upon !o j do her share and more. For moreI than forty years a member of the Lutheran Church, she was identified with ail its activities, and her unflagging interest and faithful service will | long be remembered. Perhaps no woman of the church did more than she ' j in the work that made possible the i ! bui ding of the handsome new struc-1 ture in which the congregation now ; worships. As in church work, so with I our town activities?she was compe-1 I tent and helpful to a remarkable de- j j gree. Her own home was a hospitable j I one, and was always open to her | ! friends and to those to whom enter- > ! tainment was due. For forty-six years ! I the faithful and devoted wife of Mr. j ; Marten, she lived to sec her children! grow up honored and respected at homo < ! and abroad, and they will cherish as i long as they live the memory of a wiso and loving mother who unselfishly \ and tenderly gave her life for their j happiness and welfare. Her death : is the first break in a family that for forty-six years enjoyed a happy home life. Her husband and seven children survive her: W. Gregory Marten, of New York; Mrs. Harvey W. Harmcr, 'of Clarksburg; Mrs. Chas. W. Brown, of Bethlehem,Pa.; Mrs. E. R. Darby, I of Hagerstown; Mrs. A. W. Finly, of I Detroit; Mrs. J. Wilbur Davis, of Mt. Hope, W.

The funeral was held at her lato home Sunday afternoon, her pastor, Rev. I. D. Worman, officiating.

The Register office had a call last Friday from Mr. Geo. H. Campbell, assistant to the president of the Bal? timore & Ohio Railroad, who bore a letter from Vice-President C. W. Gal- ! loway in relation to a recent statement in this paper to the effect that thf j railroad company had spent $50,000 j or $60,000 on an interlocking system I at Shenandoah Junction and abandoned it after a short time. We append the text of Mr. Galloway's letter in full. He says: "Enclosed I return copy of the Shepherdstown Register dated February 2d and have noted the article on the first page bearing on conditions at Shenandoah Junction, W. Va. "The reference to the interlocking system at Shenandoah Junction ha:t been noted and especially statement that an interlocking switching system costing some $50,000 to $60,000 was installed at Shenandoah Junction, used a few months and found that we did not need it and that all that money was wasted. "In 1890 we completed at Shenandoah Junction an 8-lever interlocking machine, at a cost of $900.00. After using the machine for eleven years it was rebuilt in 1910, its function enlarged into a 28-lcvcr machine at a cost of approximately $9,000 00. That machine remained in use for four years and on March 31, 1914, fn thq revamping of our operations on the Cumberland Division, we dismantled this machine, practically all of its parts being Rood, which were used in re, constructing and repairing other plants. Consequently, we did not, at any time, have a machine used only a few months and abandon it, nor did we spend within one-fifth of the alleged cost, and the S900.00 orginally invested was in use eleven years and the later investment was applied to reconstruction and repairs at other points. Consequently, all that money was not wasted. "Furthermore, when this machine was dismantled on March 31st, 1914, this resulted in a substantial saving in operating expenses." Of course the Register is sorry tq have been misinformed as to the cost of the system referred to, but the information came from a railroad man whose statement we supposed was coN rect. Mr. Campbell, speaking of conditions) at Shenandoah Junction, said that the railroad people realize that the station facilities there are inadequate and unsatisfactory, and President Willard is anxious to have improvements made) such as will be acceptable to the road's patrons. This, he said, cannot be done at the present time of financial depression and high cost of labor and material. We are sorrv that he could give no definite promises in regard tq a new station?which of course we must have sooner or later?but it was interesting and informing to have such a satisfactory conversation with Mr. Campbell and to have the point of view of the railroad people. Country Homes Burned. The old log and frame dwellinghouse on the Seibcrt farm a half mile from Vanclevesvillc, occupied by Mrs Ben Triggs and her family, was completely destroyed by fire last Thursday night. The fire was noticed about half after nine o'clock by members of1 the family, having caught from a defective flue and worked its way between partitions. A part of the household goods were saved. The house. ! which was substantially built of logs I was more than a hundred years old and was a land-mark in that section It had thirteen rooms. I.ast Thursday morning the log and frame house of I C. D. Johnson, at Johnsontoun, Berke-1 I Icy county, VM a'so destroyed by fire. How about that cough and cold of yours?

After having it in type and in the form, we aro i obliged to defer it until next week be- j cause of a pressure of sale advertise- j ments.
