J.D. Price of this place died in a Huntington hospital last Saturday night. Interment was made in the Godby Branch cemetery on Tuesday.
Mr. Bias, the ladies man, is back on duty with the C. & O. this week.
The Vickers mines are resuming work after being closed down for quite a while.
H.T. Butcher is attending federal court at Charleston this week.
The high school is up to the voters now. The election has been called.
There were five transactions in real estate here last week. Pretty good for a village like this.

Prof. L.H. Strader of Philippi was visiting friends here last week.
Now that the election contest is over, the people are expecting great things from Sheriff Hatfield and the county court. No further reason why this district should not have a member to represent us.
