On las Wednesday a large crowc gathered in our town to greet the coming of Mr. Henry G. Gil mer, who is a member of the State Highway Commission, but a larger crowd was disappainted the day before by Mr. Gilmer not being able to get to Clintwood on the day before, on account of rain. However, there were enough peo ple out to convince Mr. Gilmer that we are very anxious to get an outlet from Clintwood to somewhere, preferably the Pound to connect with a hard surfaced road that will let us to the outside We all enjoyed some good talks from the visitors and especially Mr. Gilmer and Mr. Austin, and we are led to believe that some of the outside world feel kindly towards us. and are in sympathy with the people of this county and are willing to help us in every possible way. On behalf of the citizens of this town and county, this paper wishes to thank the gentlemen from Coeburn as well as those from Norton, for their presence here and for the interest they have manifested in getting us out of the mud. We feel that with the help that we hope to get from the State Highway Commission, and that if every cititizen will get busy and do his bit, we will soon be connected with a hard surfaced road either to the Pound or Coeburn that will let us to the out side world.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Horton, have recently gone to Detroit, Michigan to live. Gentry Bro,s famous Circus train passed thru here yeeterday enroute to Kingsport, Tenn. Mrs. Alex. Mullins has return ed from Clintwood, where she visited friend and relatives. Harry Baxter suffered the mis fortune of getting a finger badly lacerated at the min js last week. Mr. N. B. Austin, J. P., has purchasod a Dodere. The school here is nearing a close, teachers and pupil* are looking forward to an interesting program for the last day. The new road work is progres sing ranidly despite the rain. Ed. Greely and General Meaie have moved to St. Paul, Va. Mr. Henry Shearl, has arrived in Trammel after an abscence of fourteen years, and is at the home of his sister, Mrs. W. R. Phillips. Cholera has played a tragic part with the hogs around here. Mr. J. R. Sutherland, who is working at Trammel, was at home Sunday. Miss Margaaet Finck from No ra, was in Stratton Sunday. PROCLAMATION Thursday and Friday May, 26th and 27th have been set apart as the days on which the people of Clintwood are asked to get to gather for a general clean-up of the town. This is rather late in the seasom to do this work, but it was thought best to wait till the Meadows Company had com pleted the work on main street, cleaned and dressed it up. Every family in Clintwood is urged to co-opperate and assist in this work of cleaning up. Both Banks have agreed to close one day in order to assist. A number of truck owners have voluntesred to be on hand and haul aawy the litter. It will be a good plan for each family to clean up ther premises before hand and place the gar bage where it can be easily reach ed by the truck-men. Trucks will be running both days. The winters accu nulation of tin cans, waste paper, bits of wood, and broken wire, and other forms of decaying filth is not only an ‘eye sore’ but a nuisance to the health of the people of the town. We must not suffer this- Let us come out and make this day the banner clean-up day in the history of Ciintwood. Why not make our town as beautiful, and as attractive, as any town in the south west. This is one of the ways to attract new settlers. No one is going to buy property and settle in a filthy, ugly, run-down, disease-ridd n punched-up town. The towm counsil have in mind constructive plans for widening, grading, and improving the streets, providing a suage system, and in every way possible to make ciintwood a more sanitary, beautiful, and better town to live in. A reasonable and liberal atti tude on the part of property owners toward street widening and improving would greatly facilitate these improvments; while a selfish, “squeeze-out svery-dollar-you-can” attitude, will hamper improvments, and if carried to an extreme, will stop it altogether. W. P. Kennedy, Mayor.
