An unknown local correspondent from Banco in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on April 20, 1926:

Louis Pauley was a business caller at Willie Thomas’ Monday.
Thomas Circle is looking lively these days as Willie Thomas and Charlie Varney are plowing and getting ready to raise burley.
