IHf==OTS=OF | STATE NEWS" 11 For the first time in the history of the district court at Wheeling a woman baa applied tor naturalization papers. Her object was even a mystery to the court officials. She simply made known her intentions and U. S. Com-; missioner George Boyd readily complied with her request for a petition, j She is Emma Torese Aubltsch, an Austrian. Questioned by a reporter she said: "I came from Austria in 1911 and since living here, have decided that there is no place like America. I visited my people two years ago and went back to that beautiful country Tyrol.' but Its attractiveness has faded. I never want to live there again. I may visit my people some time in the future but I prefer to make my home in America." Unlike mbst women. Miss Aubltch has no desire to venture into the matrimonial game. She declared today that she Is a man hater. She much prefers to spend her declining voBrn in thfl hnma frhnn *n oVa I chance on a man. For that reason she is preparing for the future. Her naturalization papers will be a great help to her in entering the home.She During several days last week, J. Watanabe, a prominent young fnan of Tokio. jBpan. was a visitor in Parkeraburg, and was registered at the Chancellor, coming here from San Francisco. He had been sent to this country by his father, one of the progressive men of his county for the purpose of studying and familiarizing himself with the 0tl and Kas business and every detail of it, with a view to making use of it in his own country, where there are large deposits of oil and gas. Leaving here ho went to the Harrison county oil fields, and made a trip to the large pump station at Hastings, as a guest of the Hope Natural Gas Company. He soes from that section t0 the Kentucky oil field . and may visit the field In the lower end of this state. He Is gathering a great multitude of data in relation to the drilling an.l refining departments Ior ine Dullness ana also to tho transportation ot natural gas. J. Marvin Gillespie of Cass was In ttonoeverta the other day eu route. to White Sulphur Springs to visic bis parents. He bar. >st received the sad news of tho death of his sister. Mrs. T. L. Harnsberger which occurred in China on January !>th. Mrs. Harnsberger was engaged :n missionary work of the Presbyterian church and had been In China for four years or more. Mr Oilleapie does not think It possible to have the remains brought homo and goes to White Sulphur Springs to comfort his parents In their sad bereavement. Harrison county agricultural agent Mr. Zlnn Is urging the farmers to plant more food crops this year. Special attention will be urged to the planting and cultivating ot potatoes, corn and soup beans, Mr. Zlnu believing with many otherB that these food products will never be as cheap as they were a few years ago. "I am urging II the farmers of Harrison county to plant several acres of soy beanB for the oommercial markets in the future and also for their own use." Mr. Zlnn told a reporter. "I am also urging the ' taraera and others tn hnv m bean seed at once, as the boang are new 75 cent* higher than they were at this time one year ago, and they are liable to go to a $1 or more above the present price. Acres should be planted to this product. Their advanced price Is due In part to the (act that oil and bean meal has greatly increased in value. Said the West Virginia News in Its Issue last week; "On last Saturday night the moon was 'upside down' to use a country expression. This phenomena was very alarming to those who believe in signs, as it portends a I great conflict between the United States and some other nation. The same position ot the moon was noted Just before the outbreak ot the civil war and also the Mexican war. There jl ^ may be absolutely nothing in such a sign, but thousands have more or less belief in this and other manifestations In the heavens.

The strange cage or "peach basket" masts of United States battleships and larger cruiser are unlike those of any other naval ships afloat. No seaman of wooden shipdays would recognize these odd structures as masts. They are really observation towers of steel. The cage mast is the result of years of experiment by American naval officers in an effort to create c light tower that could be shot full of holes and still stand up. The cage mast is built of a large number of slender steel rods, so arranged that everyone of them could be pierced by Bhells and unless these hits wero closely grouped the mast would stand, bo far no otner na- t tlon has copied the United States style 1 ot mast. e Each cage mast is capped by a "spot- t B MANNING?
