An unknown correspondent from Big Creek in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on April 9, 1926:
Here we come with a bit of Big Creek news.
We sure did have a nice Easter. Plenty of eggs and a good time.
The teachers and pupils of this school were seen on the hill hunting eggs Friday afternoon. I bet they were all boiled hard eggs, don’t you, Nannie?
We are sorry to chronicle the death of Mrs. P.D. Bradbury of this place, who died at her home Saturday about 1:30 a.m. and was buried in the Chapman cemetery Sunday afternoon. She was a good Christian woman and will be missed by the children of God as well as other friends.
We are having nice weather at this writing and hope it will continue.
F.W. Saltsman seems rather downhearted. Cheer up, Saltsman. Winter is over.
We would be very glad if some one would come to Big Creek and preach some for us.
Mr. Chafin of Chapmanville has been doing some classified work at the Big Creek school.
We wish the school much success with their cooking.
Miss Harmon has a girl that suits her at last.
Wonder where Archie goes every Sunday when he is up? He always has to run to keep the train from leaving him. Ask Princess where he was.
Miss Thomas, what have you done with Mr. Adams?
What has become of the cook? We guess A.C. has taken his place.
Come on Banco, Manila, Chapmanville and Henlawson. Come on with more news.
Luther Wheeler demonstrated spring Monday by taking a joy ride on his bicycle.
W.G. Lucas, who has been sick for quite a while, is much better.
Marie, where is your Kennedy?
Combinations: Ikey and her sweetie; Miss Richardson going to school; Princess and her books; Martha going to Lincoln; Marie looking for Kennedy; Saltsman and his new cap; Nannie and Dell going to the show; Mr. Kennard spitting his tobacco juice; Archie going to Millard’s.
Good night, old Banner. Hope to meet you in dreamland.
If this is published, will call again.
