WASHINGTON, D. C., Dec. 14 ? 11
6 Congressman H. C. Woodyard was a ] !
visitor In the office of Secretary of;
War Baker today. While It was an i
official call. It at the same time par-: i
took of social qualities, both officials i
\ being native-born West Virginians. It i i
is the first time they had met, and i i
their meeting was mutually pleasant, j
Although of opposite political parties j I
It was remarked by Mr. Woodyard that <
the campaign hostilities were over and i :
It was the duty of all officials, regard-11
estly and in a broad, vigorous way for i
less of party alliances, to work earn- i
the progress and well fare of the peo-1 i
pie through their government. These i i
sentiments were most cordially en-!
dorsed by the former Martlnsburg boy
who, starting as a stenographer, hat1
arrived in the cabinet of the president |
of the United States. 1 i
The official business which look ,
CongreBBman Woodyaril to the War j,
Department wbb to bring to the atten- j
tiou of the engineering department the
letter of Mayor 1'. H. Anderson, of .
Friendly, and a petition signed by clti- ,
zens of that town, urging that the gov (
ornment remove an obstruction in the |
Ohio river at that place which is in ,
the shape of an old wing dam built of ,
loose stone which, since the coniplo- |
tion of the big modern dam at Men's !
run, serves no good purpose, it is al^
leged, but rather is an obstruction. The (
original purpose of the old dam was
to deepen mo channel between Mala
moras and Friendly, in high water i
times, it has aided destruction, una
when the river is at a low stage it prevents
boats landing at Friendly, ac
cording to the allegations uiuue by lilt
mayor and citizens of that place.
Mr. Woodyard was assure, t that the
complaint would be investigated without
delay and he would be kept inform- ,
ed ot its progress.
A petition, signed by 12. A. Ingersol
and numerous otber employees of the 11

ner, so Col. Bowers claimed to the of- ,

It is remarkable bow quickly mankind
adapts Itself to changed conditions
of living and right here in Falrnont
this has been particularly notlceible
since the coming of winter?the
weather changing as It did almost ovirnight
from a warm and pleasant autumn
day to a cold blustery winter
blizzard of snow and chilling wind
And with the change of weather the
sntiro appearance of the town and the
people who live in it changed also.
School children?boys and girls that
>nly a few days ago v. ere playing football
and taking long walks in the afternooD,
are now found on every side
street coastiug down the natural
slopes of the city, shouting and enjoying
the season to their utmost. A*
tor the grown up boys and girls that
ire seen on the streets downtown even
their very walk and gestures have
changed.
Those who formerly walked with
bead up and chest thrown out, swing-1
Ing along with an athletic sweeping I
stride, now hobble along with short
and timorous steps, head down and j
the collars of their coats turned up |
over the ears. Again, others, who were |
not such prodigious walkers on the'
iry pavements, have mastered the dif- j
Rcult art of creeping over the slippery j
walks and push rapidly by those who ;
have failed to acquire this accomplish- j
meat.
Even the subjects of talk and man- i
ner of speaking of the pecsie in the |
city has changed. Gloomy forebodings 1
jf the future and lamentations for tiiej
past are heard in hoarse saddened i
roices where only a few days ago the!
talk was only of present happenings
And the food that Is eaten now in the
homes of the inhabitants and In the
restaurants is different from that
which was consumed only last week.
More meats and cakes for breakfast j
are now ordered where, vegetables!
and fruits were but recently desired, i
And so the comparison might be ex- i
tended almost indefinitely or until
one tired of writing on the subject.
As an officer of the Anti-Tubercu
losis Association was going down the
street today he was met by a little
roungster. ton years old. who appealed j
to hitn for some bread and coal for!
his mother. Investigation brought to I
light the fact that a widow is living j
alone with three hcildren in one of >
' e city's poorer quarters, every mem- j
her of the family having tuberculosis, i
it appears that three years ago the |
father contracted the disease and was j

Musterole Gives Delicious Comfort i
When those sharp pains go shooting j
through your head, when your skull
'cents as if it would split, just rub a |
little Musterole on the temples and j
neck. It draws out the inflammation, 1
oothes away the pain, usually giving;
luick relief.
Musterole is a clean, white oint- j

Better than a mustard n1ast,-r and !
