Bug," the "Louse Kid" and several other
many-alias companions were arrested
on charges of operating In a
picnic crowd, lollowing the Hughes
meeting.
Past records of "The Gorilla" and
the "O. K. Kid," also known respectively
as R. N. Robertson and William
Watson, show them followers of presidential
campaigns .long before 1899.
when they were arrested at Peoria,

"The O. K. Kid" and Harry Gardner
were charged here with grand larceny,
while the other members of the alleged
gang were held on open charges
growing out of scores of complaints by
persons whose pockets bad been rifled
at the Seattle picnic.
Secret service operatives with the
Hughes party had tipped oft the local
police that a number of notorious
"dips" were attending the candidate's
meetings.
Partisan enthusiasts are apt at
spell-binding climaxes to forget all
about their loose change and watch
fobs dangling carelessly. It is then
the "dip." worming his way through
the packed crowds, suddenly loses Interest
in statesmanship and adds his
own personal "touch" to the joyous
occasion.
It would seem a wise precaution,
Seattle police suggest for campaign
audiences to applaud with the feet or
by whistling like the "gallery god,"
leaving the hands free to protect the
pocket fortune.

On paper there is an awful lot of
railroad building going on In this state.
In addition to tho extension of the Monongebla
road to Bellngton and the
acquisition of the Coal and Coke by
the Pennsylvania, for which the Fairmont
Times vouches, the Coal and
Coke according to the Charleston Mall,
Is shortly to be taken over by the Kanawha
and Michigan, which Is a New
York Central subsidiary. Either of
these stories Is nlauslble and von ran
Lake your pick, but it would be a good
Lbtng to remember, before placing any
bets, that the Baltimore and Obto
which has been looking tbe property
over, has never said that it does not
want the Coal and Coke itself.
Then a little surveying party operating
along both sides of the Potomac
in the vicinity of Shepherdstown is
worrying the newspapers in the Eastern
Panhandle. One guess is that they
are at work on a railroad that will get
Into Washington over the road constructed
some years ago from that city
to the Great Falls, crossing the Potomac
river from Washington to the Virginia
side by the old aqueduct bridge.
The late Senator Stephen B. Elklns
and other financiers built this road.
It was believed then that the road was
Intended eventually to connect with
the Western Maryland, West Virginia
Central-Wabash system, but the death
of Senator Elklns and financial reasons
prevented the carrying out of this
purpose. The surveyors have come
through Virginia from Washington
with their lines, and it looks as if they
are aiming for a connection with the
Western Maryland in the neighborhood
of WilllamsporL It will be recalled
that a branch of the Western Maryland
was recently built into Berkeley county
with the ostensible purpose of getting
into the llnestone section, but this
may have been but a foxy move to get
Into West Virginia to link up with
Washington.
This Is a snake story, says the
Moundsville Echo which printed it
first, Robert Denoon and Earl Howard,
of the eaBt end went snake hunting
near the prison farm Monday. They
were gone about two hours but during
that time they report having caught 52
snakes. They assert that very few of
them were small.
Rev. and Mrs. B. F. Lawrence and
little daughter of Hochow, West China.
are guests at the home of A. C.
Wood on Price street, Morgantown.
Mr. Lawrence comes to sco his little
daughter. Faith Lawrence, who has
been at the home bf her grandfather
since she was brought from China
after the death of her mother, Lucy
Wood Lawrence, several years ago.
Mr. and* Mrs. Lawrence are doing
pioneer mission work in Hochow,
which is a city of 100.000 inhabitants,
and is situated at the junction of three
branches of the Yangtse river. It Is
1,000 miles from a railroad and 1,600
miles from Shanghai. Rev. and Mrs.
Lawrence are tbe only English speaking
people in the city and their nearest
neighbors are 80 miles distant.
Rt. Rev. P. J. Donahue, bishop of
the Roman Catholic diocese of West
Virginia, has left the Episcopal residence
in Wheeling for another long
trip through the state which will'take
him to the missions in the southwestern
section. While away he will dedicate
a new church at Spring Bowl. He
will also administer the sacrament of
confirmation to classes at Stonga, Va?
and Thomas Creek. These places are
near the Tennessee line. He will also
visit the Visitation convent and on his
reiurn trip will inspect ttie new hospital
now under construction at
Cbarleston, W. Va.
One of the interesting exhibits at
the Central West Virginia Fair, to be
held in Clarksburg, will be the celebrated
big bone Poland China bog. Virginia
Defender, owned by William G.
Starcher, of Glenwood. This thoroughbred
bog is considered to be one of the
greatest of its breed in the United
States. It is now two years old and
weighs about 900 pounds, which is
"some bog."
The first application for a political
position ever filed by a woman in Ohio
county, was mado by Miss Ada Dillon
of Fifteenth street. Miss Dillon applied
to the board of county commissioners
for appointment to the position
of county law librarian. She would
succeed the late Berry Merchant. The
board did not consider the application
a Joke by any means, says the Wheeling
News. Each of the members assured
Miss Dillon that tbey had no objection
against a woman filling the position,
although they were taken somewhat
by surprise. It was Intimated
that politics might prevent her appointment.

Yankee catcher, were In a eoUtskm a|

of Walters' grasp, and the game ended
with that run. I spoke to Walters
about It and suggested that the Impact

caused him to drop the balL
