Jeff Lipscomb, mayor of Partmgfc
has violated the moral or statuarj
laws, but because it is impossible fo:
him-to become accustomed to the tm
provements and conveniences ofad
vancing civilization. '
Some' months aim some of his
friends persuaded him to visit Klkin.'
where he mistook a soda fountain fos
a patent automatic liquor machine
and now he has beenconrpellcd to for
sake his family because of the nat
urai gas which is now burning wlthlt
a half mile of Ms borough The sit
uation can best be explained by pub
lisMng a letter be wtoto to Deacot
Brown, of the Argus, from the buck
leberry plains, one of tlie wildest anc
remotest sections of Tucker counfy
Here Is- his letter:
Dear Deacon:?
My soul is cast down?I am a rugi
tive?not from justice but from thai
gol-darned thing they call natural gas
Vou know, deacon, that you and I
have never shied from .".nything that
could be reasoned out by the rule ol
cause and effect. For Instance, we
never scared at a jug of apple jack or
corn whisky, for we could see clearly
that either would be the cause of a
hilarious time if taken m pint doses
at frequent intervals, which we have
done for the past fifty years
But Deacon, this natnral gas jars
my system. I visited the place where
Deacon Syler said it w?s and asked
the men to show it to me. They replied:
"There it is. look at it." For
the life of me, there was nothing to
see. and I got mad and told the fellow
the next time he jot full in my
bailiwick I would send him to jail for
30 days for attempting to make fun
nf ma Me stnirk 3 match and held
it to tbe end of an iron pipe when a
Same of fire shot out from it twenty
feet Ion?:, anil almost burned my moccasins
before I could sot out of the
way. I asked him what lie made the
stuff out of. He said It wasn't made,
but It came from a hole in the ground
near Weston. Now, Deacon. I reason
this way: Gas isnt anything- or you
could see it. Now if they bored a hole
in the ground and got nothing and are
able to burn nothing, it is time for
me to leave the haunts that have
known me these many years and go
where people are net so darned
smart. I was undecided where 1
should locate?with you nt Kingwood,
or here on the huckleberry plains. I
chose the latter. I can stand some
things. Deacon, but wher. people ask
me to forsake the pine knot that Nature
has provided to furnish light, for
mortal man and use in its place
"nothing" which by some hocus poena
arrangement is made to hum. I jump
tbe game, and am now soothing my
agitated soul by taking copious
draughts of llelky- Miller's best which
I won off "Xige" Parsons on tlic recent
election. Deacon come over and
Join me in my solitude, and you shall
have enough "inspiration." to run the
Argus for the next four years, provided.
of course. It requires no more
than you manifested in your recent
campaign for the State Senate.
Yonrs in misery.

CONTEST ENDS.
Long Drawn Out Fight For Sheriff
In Wetzel County
Closes
Candidate Cox Withdraws From
the Race?Republican
Wins.
NEW MARTINSVTU.E W. Va.,
Dec. 19.?The recount for sheriff
came to an end Friday atternoon by D.
H. Cox -withdrawing from the contest.
As soon as the board of commission
ers convened after dinner Mr. COx
asked to see the ballots marked and
which had been separated from the
lot, anil aftor making a very careful
examination of them his counsel. S.
B. Hall, stated that the contest would
end. and that Ingram Myers would
have a warm supporter In Mr. Cox.
While the evidence was preponderating
and unquestioned that the ballots
had been mutilated while in the
county clerk's office no one -would believe
for a moment that Mr. Cox ni.il
any hand in the matter neither would
suspicion be raised against any county
official. At this time it is unknown,
what will be done, as It is now up to
the prosecuting attorney and the
Cnorrv hrnfhPTSt nf PIjirbKhuri* wrhn
have been engaged by the Republicans
to look after the matter. The good
:itizens of both parties regret that
uixpicion of unfairness should be laid
it the door of any citizen of thi$ conny.
Ingram Myers, the first Ttepublian
sheriff, was given bis certificate
>f election and -will come to this city
in January 1st. He has held an imlortdnt
position with tho Soutli Penn
