An unknown local correspondent from Big Creek in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on April 9, 1926:
There are a great many sick people in our town at present. There has been about ten cases of measles in and near this place.
Frank Chapman of East End has a Sweetie somewhere in town. Wonder if any of the boys know who she is. She wears bobbed hair. You know the “Flapper Reigns.”
Some of our young folks visited Thomas’ Circle last Saturday, thinking that the school at that place closed that day, but it closed Friday.
Miss Ida Thomas of this place left for Earling last Thursday where she will assist in nursing her little cousin Master Robert Varney, Jr., who is very ill with measles.
Mrs. Alvin Hill of Ellis Fork is reported to be slowly convalescing after a long illness with measles.
Elbert Ferrell and J.A. Thomas of Estep have broken the record planting potatoes. They have planted nearly all of the Gince Hollow, a tributary of North Fork, near Estep.
Miss Edith Chapman of East End was seen going through this hamlet last Friday afternoon enroute for the town of Banco.
The school at Thomas’ Circle closed last Friday on account of measles.
Mrs. Woodrow Adkins died at her home on Big Ugly last Sunday of blood poisoning. Interment took place at the head of Turtle Creek at the Miller cemetery, near Mrs. Belle Miller’s.
