An unknown local correspondent from Banco in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on April 30, 1926:

J.W. Thomas of Estep was the all day guest of his sister, Mrs. D.H. Harmon, of this place, one day last week.
James A. Stone of this place, while out car riding one day last week, found it necessary to crank his car when he received a Ford kick which was very painful and broke one bone of his right arm.
