Why should a business man
take in his sign because "busi
ness is dull." This is one of the
great mistakes many people are
guilty of making. The men who
have succeeded in business have
been those who pushed aheadin
times that other people regarded
as "slow." The very time yon
should advertise and solicit trade
is when your neighbor has taken
down "his sign" and refuses to
advertise because of 'hard times.'
Miss Hallie E. Taurman, of
this city, was thrown from a runa
way horse on last Monday and
rather seriously though not fatal
ly hurt A broken; limb and
several bruises however will
keep her confined to her room
many days. She was visiting
her former pupil and friend,
Miss Ethel Carle, at Volcano
Junction at the timo of the acci
dent We are informed that Miss
Carle and Miss Taurman were
out riding and their horses took
fright at a passing train, throw,
ing both ladles. Miss Carle was
only slightly hurt but her com
panion was not so fortunate.
Miss Taurman has many friends
in Clarksburg who will regret
the occurrence. She was one of
the most popular teachers in
Broaddus and had intended to
visit the World's Fair before she
returned to this city.
D. S. Griffin died at his home
onPikestreet Sunday July 9th
between the hours of 10 and 11 a.
in this county, and has been
janitor at the Custom House and
post office for the pastfour years.
He was always found at his post
and performed his dudes to the
entire satisfaction of all, until
some time last winter, when he
was stricken down with typhoid
fever. From this spell he' never
fully recovered but. was able to
go, about town and seemed to be
skiwly recovering. He was go
ing about as usfial on Sunday
and his death took place at his
home where he lived alone. He
was found lying on the floor
wherdhe appeared'to have sud
denly fallen and expired, no one
being present at the time.
A great many people are some
what disgusted with the tactics
employed at some of the modern
"church festivals." The ques
tion of the future is, will people
continue to patronize church fes
tivals that practice the "skin
ning" game? People who attend
the vestivals generally expect to
patronize them, and, as ? matter
of fact expect to spend some
money before they go away, but
the practice of prodding the visi
tor from the time he enters the
room "until he leaves, is very dis
agreeable. it frequently hap*
pens that the visitor is asked to
invest his money, before he has
an opportunity to do so volun
tarily, thus leaving the impres
sion that he would not have pat
ronized it at all, had he not been
forced to do so. ; People go away
