As a farewell reception to their
friends who have, been together with
them for the past three or four
months, the enlisted men of the Regiment
will hold an Informal dance at
the Armory this evening. The dancing
will begin at 8:30 and will continue
until 2.30. The affair was arranged
on very short notice Inasmuch
as orders to break camp might be
given at any time and the men have
therefore been unable to send out
invitations. However all friends of
the enlisted men are cordially invited
and a good time Is promised.
Through the generosity of Tom
Deveny, Skinner's Orchestra will
furnish music for the occasion. The
committee in charge of the dance is
as follows: I. L. Dunnlogton, H.
0. Ross, J. E. Gasklll, G. S. Martin,
N. 0. Heintzleman, Joe Hartley,
W. R. Ice and Harry Jacobs.

the large part of the fight is over and'
that the epidemic is about checked.
Saturday Dr. Noe announced through
the West Virginian that his hospital
equipment would not be complete without
a Victrola. Senator C. W. Watson
yesterday had a large Victrola taken ,
to the hospital together with a complete
outfit of records. The Victrola is very
popular at the hospital and doubtless
has a good effect on the children.
Yesterday being Sunday many of the
parents and other sear relative! took
advantage of the opportunity to visit
their children at the hospital. The
children were more than glad to see
father and mother and natural!]' were
anxious to return home with them.
Besides the parents there were several
physicians from over the state at
the hospital. The establishment at
Traction park is a good example of an
emergency hospital and before it is
torn down will be visited by many physicians.

The collision occirred In a eurre

feet of one another. That both the
motormen escaped isjury Is considered
almost a miracle.
When the accident occurred the
"line" car was backing to the rear
with Mr. McElfrest itandfng within a
coil of wire rope. When the crash
came he was pinioned against the cab
and horribly mashed. It took some
time to extricate him from the debris
but ai soon as possible he was rushed
to Fairmont Hospital No. 3 where it
was found necessary to amputate one
of hie legs. He did not rally and died

The "line" car was en route from
Viropa siding to Bingamon and stopped
to leave some workmen. When the
car started something fell from the
car ami it was backed in order to recover
the object. As it wag running
south the express car rounded the
curve and crashed Into the car which
was literally mashed to pieces.
The car which was south bound was
operated by Motorman Davis and Conductor
Rhodabaugh. Herbert Hall was
operating the "line" car with McElfresh
as his flagman.
Mr. McElfresh la survived by six
children. Mrs. Joseph Harvey, of Eldora;
Okey, Russell, Bessie and Lawrence,
