An unknown local correspondent from Banco in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on April 20, 1926:
The population of our town is steadily increasing. Mr. Enoch Workman of Stone Branch moved into East End last Friday.
Mrs. Ethel Ferrell of Estep and Mrs. Minnie Queen of Needmore were on a shopping tour in Banco and Big Creek one day last week.
The folks at this place are very busy at present caring for the sick, gardening, and farming. All the patients who have had measles are improving, we are glad to say.
Wonder why Frank Chapman spends every Sunday afternoon in the East End? We imagine there is some game up there. It must be “Dears.”
Miss Mary Thomas of this place left for Turtle Creek one day last week where she will spend a few days with Mr. and Mrs. Adlia Barker.
We are informed that Mr. and Mrs. Ola Adkins have moved back into the little town of Needmore. Mrs. Adkins’ work will consist mostly of farming for the summer.
Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Thomas of Estep were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Thomas, also of Estep, last Sunday afternoon.
Master Otis Varney, son of Ephraim Varney (deceased) of Thomas Circle, is reported to be very ill of measles this week.
Maxie Madeline Small, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Varney of Thomas Circle, is ill with measles this week, we are informed.
The South Penn Oil and Gas Company is making fine progress drilling for oil and gas at the head of Ellis Fork near this place.
Mr. Gartner Baisden and one of his girlfriends of Ellis Fork were out horseback riding last Saturday afternoon. Wonder if his girl at Logan will care?
J.W. Thomas of this place was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Pauley of East End last Sunday afternoon.
Frank Chapman of Estep was a business visitor in Logan last Monday.
