SWINE AND POULTRY 11^^^ (Frank V. Jolliffe, Correspondent.) MAXNINGTON. Aug. 12.?It has been said by tome people, who are thoughtless, that Mannlnston has seen her best days, hot to one who will tblnk of her location and natural resources this-seems like a pipe dream. It bas heen supposed by some that Fairmont had all the coal in this part of the State, when as a (act Fairmont is fust on the edge of the coal field of tola county, as mere is uui juuv w?j east of Fairmont While Mannlngtoa la In the midst of one oi the greatest coal fields on earth./ We,are snrrounded with the flneet coal to be found in the world and It is practically Inexhaustible. Further than this we are at the crossing of the ways and In the near future there will be a railroad built north and south through thla city. The coal is here and a railroad owns It that certainly bought it for the express purpose of using It and to mafke a great freight traffic for their road. There la a natural route for a railroad from here north to Pittsburg and south and east to tide wsuer. Great undertakings are sometimes slow to develop but they are coming and the man who has faith in the town and will invest his money -will reap a large profllt The trolley line from here to SmithHeld is another Improvement that will come in a little time. That a railroad of some kind will be built from here to the Short Line railroad Is an assured fact- When .this shall have come to pass Mannlngton will be a great trading center and be wbo has faith vyili reap the reward. Vesterday was a quiet Sunday in the city. The people were out-on the hills and family groups could be seen going In all directions. Services were neld at the Baptist and Christian churches. The pastors of the other churches being on their vacations .here were no services, at the other churches. D. L. Floyd met with a serious accident here yesterday morning and he will lose part or aU of one food. He iiad been in the east and came, in on Mo. 7 that arrives here about three o'clock In the morning and aeems to have been asleep when the strain arrived and the conductor woke him up but he seems to have been sleeping so soundly that he wau dazed when trying to get off the train and did so Just as the train was leaving the station NEWSY NOTESJR [ * I . FARMINGTON LETTER. I * * l'\ I Notwithstanding the fact that there ire other towns larger and of more importance to the world In general Iran is our little town, get we question if there Is a town In the county that ras made the progress In building during the last year that this town has. In fact, there Is not a place in town rut where there are several nice, cozy little cottages lately put -up?some by their owners, while others are for rent it a very reasonable tlgure. The people are getting their eyes open to the fact- that Farmington Is destined to be one of the principal towns In this seclion of the State, and ore cotn-.ng nere In preference to the larger places. When the trolley line Is completed nnny people whose duties require hem at either Fairmont or ManningIon, will live here, as our town is julet, and healthy, and living here Is lot so high as in many places, for the last named reason alone many people will live here in preference to either if the two towns named above. Let hem come, and we will welcome them, 10 long as they are good citizens. We are glad to Inform the world that he old road extendlag from the bridge o the old Morgan mill has at last >een condemned by order of the coun:il.

Another favorite on the lecture platform has been Paul M. Pearson, of Philadelphia, In a course of two lecture-recitals.

Sunday evening between four and five o'clock, and his left leg crushed off below the knee, and the right leg from the knee down so badly crushed that amputation will be necessary. The B, and O. company doctor was called and the injured man hurriedly removed lo the Glendale hospital, but his condition was so low from the shock that the surgeons postponed the amputation. Last nlgbt, Clegg's condition was considered by the doc- n tors 9S very Berious, and the outcome L was very dubious. dj Clegg Is about fifty years of age. ^ unmarried and lived with his aged ^ mother on Jacob streeL near Thirtysixth. By occupation he is a puddlor yi and formerly worked for the Wheel- g, Ing Steel and Iron Company at Ben- w wood. His brother, James Clegg, Is a n puddler In the same mill.
