Mr. Chas. A. V eager cf Marlinton,
i W. Va., an dMrs. F'.izabetll S. Sur
geon, were t|uielly married at j
i Honcevcrte, Wednesday, by Hcv.
W. C. Sponauglc. pastor of the bride
After receiving .the congratulations
of a few of the most intimate friend*',
and acquaintances they were driven
to tlie station where they look the
fast train. No. 2 for the Fast. And
will spend the honeymoon for the
next few months at Franklin, Vir
ginia, whV?re M?\ Y eager has a line'

Lsoneof 1-ocuhontas' most prosper
ous ami successful business men, a
dealer in coal, g;is and ail lands in
different part of the State and in
Virginia . Is also a .successful farmer.
The bride is the widow of Cap:
Wan Surgeon, who was one of the
most popular men in the employ of
the ('. & (). Hy Co., at Honcevcrte.
and wlii'o passed to his eternal re
ward several years ago. Mrs. Sur

Christian lady, and has the conli

Iter. We wish feir t!iis worthy couple I
much happiness, cloudless skies,
and bright sunhinc.
ATTENTION!
We desire to direc.t th'e attention
! of our readers to two articles in this
week's issue. They are by Win. 11.
Sawyers, (page 2) and Mrs. Nancy
Marry Mann, (page I.)
Not every one agrees with all 'that
Mr. Sawyers writes, 1ml his article
in the Independent today .should he
read hy all, reflected upon :ind then
re-rend. I! is to the point and no
one who has read history can adjnit
it to he but the truth. We believe
in optimism and a Life with out >i t i>. 1
blasted: but optimism radiating over I
a "dung hill" of debauch is within
itself cankerous and rotten. Opti-j
inisiin to be cli'ective .must be sus
tained by intelligence and charac
ter. For th'e last 'twenty years or
marc as a people we have been go
ing to seed. We have gained such
head way that today it Ls very un
popular to call attention to the fart.
La>t fall, on the occasion of a visit
to this county by Hon. A. ('. Naden
husch, in a conversation with the
writer, called attention to the con
dition of our country and the abso
lute impossibility of get I ting the
people awakened to the situation.
The average business leader in
jnany communities instead of being
a student of the affairs, spends his
evening's in some kind of dissipation
or so-called recreation. He does
not really know what confronts the
world and the nation. We need a
ballast. That ballast can be pro
duced b\ a sane study of our con
dition and thus finding out where
we are: and then throwing the
weight of real manhood and woman
k'ood into the breach, retrench and
make good for sobriety in every line
Mrs. Mann's addreVs places a
high standard for womanhood in
public life. She is a leader and a
worthy leader. Her personality
disproves the idea th'at women can
net r niter politics without losing the
virtues of irue womanhood. We re
quest every one to read her address,
and may we express the "hope that
the Indies of our county and Stale
will jvtrive to reach the height Which
she sets. 'Hie women of our coun
try thfavc the rigid -to vote. It is no
longer a privilege; but it is a duly
and a responsibility. If they meet
Uiat diily and that responsibility in
the liftfd, shiftless way in which' far
too many men have in th'e past, the
rigid ami privilege to vote will be a
cur.se just as it has been to many
men.
During the war. we all more or
less intensely worked. It was forc
ed upon u.s to work. In lime of peace
it is just a.1 much our duly to work
and use our energies and our brains |
for the good of our country, as in j
time of war. (), for a vision of!
duty and of responsibility and Itrrj
energy t<> execute that diM > and that
jvspoiv ibility.
