Bank Employes
Receive Gold Coins!
The attaches of the National Bank
of Fairmont were each given a twenty
dollar gold piece yesterday as a token
of the appreciation ot the officers of
tbo institution for the faithful per
formance of the work that comes to
their lot to do. This Is by far the most
handsome recognition service ever ex
presed by a concern in this city.
The National Bank of Fairmont
takes particular pride in having men
of proved ability and its officers feel
In the manner expressed by Mr. Glenn
F. Burn;, that it is a small way in
showing the appreciation of the offi
cers for the exceptional service rend
ered by the attachos.
Commerce Chamber
Has New Metric Chart I
Secretary Charles W. Evans, of the
Fairmont Chamber of Commerce, has
adorned the walls of the office of the
chamber with a handsome chart ex
plaining the workings of the Metric
system. There is considerable agita
tion on now to make the metrical sys
tem universal. There Is no reason
that can be offered for not making
a stable standard for measuring arti
cles. The metrical system is based
on three things, viz: the meter, the
gram and the liter. Everything runs
in multiples of ten, making it the most
simple system that can be devised.
Every counter of consequence that has
not yet adopted the metrical system
question is being agitated in the Con
gress of the United States and eve.
commercial organization that has any
Influence -worth talking about is an
xious to see the system put In opera
tion. It only takes a minute or two
to master the system.
Under our present method ot mea
suring by weights and other ways
there are endless intricacies arising
out of the different schemes. This
can be remedied most effectively by
the introduction and adoption of the
method devised and perfected by the
French people. People who have seen
the chart in Secretary Evans' office
are enthusiastic over the idea oC
changing the system of weights and
measures.

Older Employes of

policy ot the present administration as
regards Its older clerks in the' post
office department and offices through
out the country, was clearly expound
ed in the report of First Assistant
Postmaster General Roper which was
made public last week. Mr. Ropei;
would cut off the superintendent alto
gether, and provide for the elimina
tion of older omployes, without regard
to length or value of- service, who are
not furnishing full returns for salar
ies paid tliem. He urges revision of
salaries of postmasters which would
result in the saving of $1,500,000 a
year to the department. Also ho would
changs tho eight hour law for employ
es so that they can work during any
given forty-eight hours.

State Fair May
Meet Next Year
JOHN S. SCOTT HAS BEEN INFORM
ED THAT EXPOSITION WILL
MEET AS USUAL.
The word th&t has been circulated to
the effect that Wheeling would have
no fair next season has proven to bo
without foundation. Secretary John S.
Scott, of the Fairmont Fair Associa
tion, has been authoritatively informed
by the man who has charge of the speed
program of the Wheeling fair, who
states that the West Virginia metropo
lis will put on an exhibiton jiext year
under partially different management
to what It has been before.
The stock of the Wheeling Fair As
sociation was said to have been largely
owned by the Reymann Brewing Com
pany, and whent the state went dry
the Brewing Company no longer cared
to carry its stock. The company feared
that the fair would be a financial fail
ure because the proceeds from the bar
under the grandstand, said to be the
longest bar In the world, would not be
forthcoming.
The Reymann people offered to turn
over the proposltoln to other Interests,
with the result that the matter has been
worked out. The date of the next fair
has already been set. It will be on the
weok of August 6-10.
The dates for the other fairs In West
?Virginia have not yet been announced.
