Robert Fisher and Reno Fleming, two Fairmont boys, will launch a minstrel show June 4, opening the season at Mannington and playing towns in this section of the state for some weeks of the tour. The show will be ! given under canvas and will include j some of the best known performers in ' that line of work with a brass band | which will arouse the natives. Her-! bert Swift, who was leader of the band ! with Coburn's Minstrels last winter i season, will be In charge of the music. | Reno Fleming will do one of "the ends" and it is likely that Robert Fisher will do a dancing specialty in addition to watching out at the "front door." The i ^show will travel by automobile and will visit Fairmont early in its season. I, Marion county has long been promtnent In the amusement affairs of tbe country and as early as the sixties a Fairmonter financed a show which unfortunately came to grief at Parkors- j burg. In the early seventies a tented attraction, "The Great European Circus," was launched at Boothsville. In more recent years Charles W. Swisher "backed" a show in which Phil S.

Gretaer was starred called "Grandpa Squeors" or "Christmas Eve Down a on the Farm," which met with some j, success. si p; Those who happen in the outlying district of the city known as Johntown this week have seen a ninety year old man doing his "bit" in the garden. It! c] is John Timms, who has lived almost a [ R century, and who has been able to be a around for a fortnight, following an ill- lr ness. This aged man feels that he is w still able to contribute the work nec- ,v essary for a food output which will (| save the civilized world from German r rule. The fruit is safe. There has been . no east winds, according to William f Prlckett, of Barnstown. who has watched ouch things for many years. A freeze was reported last week on Booth's crook and up on Finch's run which causes some uneasiness in those sections. It is declared that water left g out actually froze over at one of these u points. The late bloom on the cherry b trees is encouraging to those who h feared for the fruit crop for in the t< event of the early bloom having been a killed the late bloom is safe. Cherries r are as big as wheat grains at this time 0 on trees in the outskirts of the city. Z. Layman, who has quite an envia- j ble reputation as a gardener, has had _ lettuce for some time and other things are in good shape. He has three beds which yielded 1,500 pounds of lettuce last year and 1,000 pounds the year before. He has a brand of tomatoes which he thinks are even better than p the Marketeers, boomed by Roy Stewart, of Mannington. One of his plants grew to be 1G feet tall and bore-a to- ? mato eleven feet from the ground. ^ Calamity howlers fear that flour is ^ going to go to $20 a barrel before Ger- fl| many is defeated unless there is gov- al erisment action of some sort regulat- u] Ing the price of food stuffs which has g| led some of the older citizens to recall that flouj sold at a higher rate ~ >urishing od with delicious FRECKLES AND HI ower thanThw PUrCh**Illg J In Civil war times wheat bread was J luxury.

This fl rice was almost prohibitive so many 9 f the people used rye coffee and S tere were cases where families used 9 rowned wheat coffee and even a cof- 5 e made from browned sweet potatoes, i W.
