One man 89 years of age is aid to have spent practically all his time for many years in efforts to land thin fish and was much chagrined when he found another than himself had been the successful angler The man ssld in no soft language that the strangers had come out there and ?_*iught "his fish."

Oct. 1.?The RueI sian capital Is preparing seriously to ' resist air raids. A series of observation posts within a radius of 200 ' | miles has been established, airplanes ;are on duty and arrangements made l I for darkening the city when the ap proach of enemy airmen is announced j by the blowing of sirens. lity Newspaper of F FOR 1 CAN SMOKES R IN FRANCE The West Virginian Will See That It Is Placed Right in His Hands. ( One of the first things the American BOldierM found when thrv In France was that the French tobacco would not do. Frantic appeals were sent to friends and relatives on this side to send on some smokes. Some of those appeals have reached Fairmont and some tobacco already has been sent from this city to young men in the Expeditionary force. But although the amount sent in each case was large, considering the distance, it will be merely a drop in the bucket. Before the craving for American tobacco can be satisfied there will have to he a supply large enough for all the smokers in the army on the other side. The government has recognized this to the extent of getting the French government to admit the tobacco free of duty and a number of newspapers .among them The West Virginian, have arranged with the American Tobacco company to take charge of getting the tobacco into the hands of the soldiers. At first it was thought that it would be possible for people acting through the newspapers and the Tobacco company to send tobacco direct to particular soldiers, hut It has been found that this cannot be done. The nearest approach to the personal touch is a postal card which is enclosed in each of the puckages or tobacco upon which the recipient will write an acknowledgement. Under this plan every one who buys a 25 cent package of toliaceo in tint" will receive through the mails one of these cards indicating that the quarter's worth of comfort has leached an American soldier on the battle front, anil that it has made hiin happy Such cards ought to make most interesting mementos of America's participation in the war. The plan operates in this way: If you feel inclined to send smokes to the soldiers give The West Virginian twenty-five cents?you can give as much more as you want to. but twenty-five cents will be enough?and The West Virginian will turn It over to the Americsn Tobacco company which will send one carton containing two packages of cigarettes, three packages of a popular granulated smoking tobacco and one package of another kind of smoking tobacco together with a suitable amount or cigarette papei>s and the return card to France, where it wilt be placed in the hands of a soldier by representatives of the Tobacco company who are already in France doing this work. The retail value of the tobacco in the carton, which by the way i? most attractively put up, is 4 T. cents. The difference between the price contributed and the retail price together with the expense of getting the tobacco to the place where it will do the most good is the American Tobacco company's patriotic contribution to the cause. The West Virginian's share in the enterprise Is to stir up the public to the need of tobacco for the Expeditionary forces and to gather In the quarters. Your share, Mr. Man. and Madam, is to provide the quarters. Kick In without delay. It is an easy and cheap way of doing a whole lot of good. Bring or send the money to the office. HAS HOSPITAL FOR HIS VERY OWN Two Y??nr OIH Onlv Patipnf at Traction Park Institution. Nicholas Mittico, aged two years and six months, is the only patient at the Traction Park hospital. Lena Fraze, of Mtddleton. and Mary Compalte, of Monongah, were taken from the hospital to their homes on Saturday. Both were treated with serum, and when taken home had entirely recovered from any poliomyelitis effects. Dr. Peter Noe, Jr.. has set no definite date at which he will close the hospital, but it Is probable that the little child now confined there will have recovered sufficiently to go home by Friday or Saturday of this week. Already a course of fumigation has teen started, getting ready for the v/? wiv nvcfiiut "?ic| iu LUC week. All of the patients will be at the hospital again tomorrow for the clinic Dr. Noe 1b holding for the physicians who will be In Fairmont to attend the first session of the State Medical association.
