Daddy says 'at Washington,
Wuz America's first son,
'At when I grow to be a man,
, To be just like him. if I can,
Is"en daddy mako a great big- sigh,
And say, He never telled a lie,
at'At he wuz big and brave and truo,
TAnd not a bit like me and you.

THE DEACON.
W. M. Thomas, bridge man from Dos
Angeles, and filled with 190 pounds of
typical Los Angeles proeziness and
good sense, holds a high opinion of
Fairmont and the Monongahela Valley.
"In my opinion," says Mr. Thomas,
and his opinion by the way is worth
something and la based on years of
globe-trotting, "the Mononguhcla Valley,
with Pittsburgh at one end ami
Fairmont at the other, is the richest
place In the world In possibilities. At
this moment there Is more smoke going
up and more being done In that territory,
than in any other section of the
world."
Mr. Thomas believes that Fairmont
is a fine placo to live, and think of an
opinion like that coming from a man
whose home is In the "Angel City."
Mr. Thomas agrees though that West
Virginians, and partirularly some Fairmont
ones, are the hardest headed,
slow wlttodcst, thick skulledcst and
most unappreciatlre humans in the
United States. In Los Angeles some
types of local business men would be
run out of town for the general good
of tho community. In the west It is
as much a crime to retard the modern
progress of a town as it is to steal a
liorse.
Mr. Thomas bejlcves. however, that
some time wont yirglnians will wake
up to what 1r theirs, hut not. possibly,
until after Rome intelligent interests
from other states come in and assume
control of things.
