From the Logan Democrat, of Logan, WV, come these items of local interest dated 1917:

CHAIR CARS NOW ON ALL GUYAN RIVER TRAINS

In prompt response to their promise made a couple of weeks ago, the division officials of the Chesapeake & Ohio railway, on last Saturday provided an additional chair car for the Huntington to Logan service, and as a result Guyan river travelers are now more conveniently and satisfactorily provided for than at any time since the introduction of the railroad into this territory a little more than a dozen years ago.

The extra equipment now gives a chair car on all through trains, an to prove that it was needed and is much appreciated by the traveling public is the fact that on almost every trip since its installation the new car has been completely filled.

Travelers no longer need dread the long trip up or down the old Guyan, and the more satisfactory service is bound to result in many happy results for this section and our people.

“OLD GLORY” RAISED

BIG BOOZE SHIPMENT

The C. & O. Monday night received a great quantity of liquor for consumers in Logan county. Monday night was the last chance for those whose wine cellars were slim and whiskey bottles were empty to get a supply before the state started on its on-quart of whisky a month. Under the old law a man could bring in as much liquor as he could carry in a suitcase and a great many evidently took advantage of this law before it was superseded by the new law.

Big Flag Is Flaunted To Breezes Over Court House Before Big Crowd

A large “Old Glory” was flaunted to the breezes over the dome of the court house last Saturday before an immense crowd of citizens, a number of whom came quite a distance to view the ceremonies.

The raising occurred shortly after two o’clock. Previous to that time the Logan band reinforced by the musicians of Herbert’s Greater Shows rendered a few musical numbers. As the flag was raised the musicians struck up the Star Spangled Banner, a large number of people took off their hands and the ceremonies were over.

WHO WILL BE FIRST?

Although flags are much in evidence on people and buildings in Logan, not a single bond of the “Liberty Loan” has been purchased here, according to the First National bank.
