The unusual sight of fields of corn
untouched by the harvesters Is one tbal n
greets the eyes in Berkeley county, at
this late season, says the Martinsbtirg
World which continues: The rodder
Is frosted and dead?absolutely valueless
for turage and in fact most of tnc
blades have been swept away by the
autumn winds. Uldcr farmers In the
county say that this la the first time
in their recollection when such a thing
happened, except for little patches of
corn in rough new lands. Today Die Ir
fields of fine corn on the main thor-1;
ought'ares of the county are to be seen I j
standing, due to lack of labor. Of I
course the corn ears had ripened ne
[ore the frost came and will be saved
One thing this indicates besides the ' ,
loss in the corn-fodder crop that many
acres that would have been sown in
wheat so badly needs at this time, wiif j
have to be re-cropped in corn next jyear.

J. L. Price, of l'arkersburg, who on ,
Saturday returned from a visit to relatives
at Silver Aun. itltchie county,
presented Capt. W. A. Smith with a
very handsome bamboo cane, says the r(
Sentinel. Mr. ''rice explained that he 0
found it alongside the road near Sii w
ver run. while taking a stroll one day c
recently and in making a closer ex- d
amination of it when he arrived home,
discovered that It concealed a very
ugly weapon, a stiletto, about ten inch
es in length, of very pretty workmun f(
ship. He said he had no use for it and a1
thought it the proper thing to do to ],
turn it over to the officers. w
Charles and Joseph McN'utt, Wheel
Ing youngsters, sold papers so that
they could both buy a Liberty bond.
Having made good in selling oaoers

each for a brother and aiater. who are g,
!2-months' old t.wlnB. The twins lor n
whom they purchased bonds are Jess ?
Willard McNutt and Tersabell McNutt. ,j
The twin sister was named after Jess G
Willard'B wife. Tersabell.
The following amusing account ot an
unusual happening Is from the Park- y
ersburg News: lr
Landlord "Zeb" Evans, of the Mun- n
roe hotel, sent In a hurry-up call tor ^
the city sealer of weights and mea?
ures yesterday morning. He was examining
some potatoes that he bad
lust purchased by weight, and fount! g
embedded in one of the tubers a piece q
of iron weighing a pound or more. Tbc
iron is In the form of an old burgy t|
clip and its communion with the potato G
appears to have started with the development
ot the vegetables. "Zeb" p
was of half a mind, however, that the j_|
"honest farmer" had put one over on
him. and acting on that supposition he w
solicited the advice of City Sealoi I ?
Knight, and also ot his attorney.
If a suit be brought against the seller
of the potatoes, the culpable party 3
would be treated as the principal and t(
the potato as an accessory both beforo [,j
and after the fact. This certain po'a
