There are a number ui eating clubs
In the city which ai e solving satisfactorily
the problem of where to go for
good food at a reasonable price. The
members which are limited each pay
a capable cook a stated sum apiece
each week. The grocery bill at the
end of every week is ten added and
the sum divided among the members.
Each member pays his share which
does not amount to as much as regular
boarding down town and a much better
table is set Ono or the members is
usually chosen to take charge ol the
ordering and paying ot bills for which
he or she receives board free ot charge
One of the most popular clubs in the
"city, and for which there is always a
waiting list, has this year undertaken
to put up fruit for the winter's con

club plan not only guarantees a certain
regular salary to the cook but also does
away with waste or bad management
and enables each member to pay just

?in fact all who have tried it say they
get far more out ol it than in any other
way of eating.
A number of loving mothers were
? much amused while visiting the young
girls at the pool yesterday. They had
ho idea the slim youngsters were so
adept in the water. It was a scream
from start to finiBh?the cold shower
started things going?a sudden backward
sit-down in the seven foet end
was nothing at all?a run antra jump
over head was decidedly fun. Floating,
swimming and diving with little
effort, which is the correct way to
swim, was the program. Several
stayed where the water 'was low but
most of the girls preferred the depths
and were perfectly at home there.
They were only allowed to stay In the
water one-balf hour so that long before
they were tired, the whistle blew
and all scrambled to cold shower again
and to the dressing rooms.
Cantaloupes served in the restau
rants of Fairmont this season as a
whole ran very fine. This is especially
true of those which were served several
weeks ago. Ono of the stunts that
the restaurant man pulls Is to cut the
bottom of the muskmellon off so that
it sets on the plate. The majority of
these cantaloupes are imported from
B California and they are a very luscious
fruit or vegetables as you choose to
class them. Quite a few sh!nmnnt? ...

Can you picture a soldier boy hustling
around the camp like a reporter
on a live, wide-awake daily newspaper!
Well that Is going on at Camp Lee,
H Petersburg, Va, where a newspaper Is
published daily with the news of the
HI day. This publication is known as
"The Bayonet" and some copies of the
sheet have reached Fairmonters, who
'a have boys at the camp.
By a recent arrangement the United
States government has permitted mail

Although Sammic's day is pretty
well taken up In the 16 big army cantonments
by drills and other camp duties.
there is time left for athletic
sports and Sammie. wishing to get his
muscles hardened for strenuous days
to come, doesn't neglect them.
College men, trained by competent
coaches in track and field sports, we're
the early instructors at the camps although
volunteer coaches in ail majot
sports were added later.
Competition between the many units
in camp furnishes the impetus which
makes the men, many of whom have
never entered athletic competition,
train as hard as high school and college
men do before a big meet.
The track games include hurdling,
both trench hurudling for distance and
high hurdling, high jumping, running,
Luiniucu manny to me snorter uasnes,
weight events and throwing.
Baseball and football teams have
been organized in practically all the
Footfall promises to be the great
sport this fall with hundreds of teams
in competition. A movement has been
started to have the champion teams of
the IB camps meet in a big national
tournament to deciue the selective service

The consummation of this project depends.
of course, upon plans of the
War department, which may send the
first army into entrainment camps be
fore the football season ends.

Sample, Hess and Meredith
All Here at the

Marlon county Is entertaining three '
men formerly prominent in West Virginia
newspaper circles this week.
Two of them have edited papers at
Fairmont, two have been foremen of
newspaper plants at Fairmont ami all
three have had newspapers at Mannington.
Henry c. Sample is given
credit for running the best weekly paper
that Marion county has ever had
in The Free Press which has since ;
become The Farmers Free Press and
is now owned hv the company whlcn
gets out The West Virginian J.
Bruce Hess was president of the West
Virginia editorial association for four i
years, secretary of the organization!
for two years preceding his elevation
to the presidency, and foreman of
the Free Press plant when that paper
was moved from Mannington to Fairmont
shortly alter it started. E. E.
Meredith edited the first daily paper
in Fairmont which started shortly be- i
fore the Spanish American war and
was called the "Expositor." l.ater he
edited the Mannington Advocate and
The Morgantown Post which has since '
become the Post-Chronfcle.
Henry 0. Sample is paying his first
visit to Fairmont and Manningiou in
three years. He is now residing at 1
Laurel, Mil. He is engaged in the real
estate 6'usiness. He has not lost his !
love for newspaperdom although his
health got had a few years ago. which '
led to his disposing of The Pre? Press
and locating in Maryland where he 1
bought a 37 acre farm, almost in Laurel
which has a population of 3.000 ;
Mi. Sample finds jolly entertainrfent .
with two other retired printers in the I'
town?he calls them "tramp printers" '
It is told that a standing jest of the i
trio is for one to approach ths other 1
with a request for two bits, which is ;
supposed to be the cream of printer,
comedy of years gone by. Mr. Sample
has the newspaper instinct and;
conducted a splendid weekly, which
West Virginia editors will long remember.
J. Bruce Hess started The Manning- J
ton Enterprise in 1895 and sold the
plant some years later to the late
Howard N. Ogdon, a brother of Her
schel Ogden, the Wheeling newspaper j
magnate. Mr. Hess later took over |
the plant again and it Is now used by j
The Mannington Telegram, only daily |
