An unknown local correspondent from Chapmanville in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on June 25, 1926:
Master French Barker of Wilkinson is visiting his uncle, J.W. Barker, here this week.
Mrs. May Newman of Ceredo is visiting her sister, Mrs. Nettie Ballard, here this week.
The contest among the girls and boys at Sunday School here is getting very interesting.
Some of our citizens say they are looking for the King Bee most any day now.
Quite a lot of men of mystery were in town last week.
The Banner correspondent at Phico was in town Tuesday.
Mr. Smith, the county road man, was looking over some of our roads this week.
A number of people at Big Creek were discussing politics the other day and one lady of about 65 years with her arm in a sling said she didn’t know which party was the best for the country. Said she never was harmed by a Republican, but a Democrat broke her arm. Someone else remarked that the Democrats were in the habit of breaking everything they had anything to do with.
