j we learn of the death of Alexis Os

Sam'l W. Osborne, of Sewell Valley,

'.Alliance C.ily Hospital May I?. 1921,
! the cause of his death being bron
chial pneumonia. Filtering the hos
lpilal on the l.Sth of April he undcr
l went an operation for appcndicilis.
,ilis successful response to the op
eration gave promise of speedy rc
jcovery but pneumonia developed
and (ieatli came putting an emi to
j the life of a very worthy, indust
rious, ambitious and promising
young man. He was horn at his
j father's home in Sewell Valley April
I 18, 1980. liis father being a warm
i persona friend of Capt. Alexis M.
Buster, of Blue Sulphur Springs,
named his first born in his honor
Alexis. His associates in the rail
road service, particularly conduc
tor Win. J. Mathias, on whose train
lie served as brakeman, speak in
high terms of his faithfulness and
j efficiency and felt confident that
he would soon have been promoted.
His father was with hi.ni in his last
hours and his grief was pathetic
as lie watched liiin while he breath
ed his last. Alexis leaves his father,
J mother and seven brothers and sis
ters to mourn his untimely death.

"EGGSTRAORDINARY."
Mrs. H. M. Humphreys of Hox
alia. this county, sends us a pecu
liar egg laid by one of her Plymouth
Hock hens last month (April). It is
really a double egg. each twin metis
uring about one inch in length, the
junction between the two covered
with the shell, and the whole weigh
ing less than one-fourth of an ounce
We'll bet it is the smallest egg in
North America. Now maybe Green
brier can find some kind of a
"varmint" over in that county il
wants to match against the product
of this perfectly respecttible Mon
roe hen. ? Watchman. ?
Now, Brother Johnston, it is pos
sible, tho hardly probably, that we
i might tind or hear of some Green
J brier "varmint" willing to compete
with the curiosity or monstrosit.N
you report from the /toxalia barn
yard; we doubt if the genteel digni
lied matrons of any hennery or
barnyard in Greenbrier, whose
sense of propriety is acute, could
easily be persuaded or coaxed,
to enter the contest you invite.
Greenbrier hens rebel at the mere
suggestion of "twinzes" as wholly
irreconcilable with barn-yard prop
riety and a caper they would blush
lo own.
STATE HEALTH OFFICER.
As the Slate Senate, in a partis
an spirit Honorable Senators seem
ed powerless to resist, refused lo
conlirm any of Governor Cornwell's
appointments, among them the ap
pointment of Dr. Lindsay T. Vin
son, of Huntington, to serve out the
limine of Dr. It. T. Davis, of Charles
ton. who resigned the otlice he
cause the Bcpublicans, eager to
hog every job in sight big or little,
had clearly indicated an intention
to allow no Democrat to hold this
position. Governor Morgan has now
appointed Dr. W. T. Ilenshaw (He
publican) of Marlinsburg, to serve
out Dr. Davis' term.
. We can see no wisdom nor bene
fit to the people in such narrow
partisanship as is shown. It is
clear lh;i! Wesl Virginia Bcpubli
cans both preach and practice
thai, "lo Ihe victor belongs the
spoils."
