Dogs made a raid on the flocks of John W. Moore and Andrew Moore on the mountain opposite Marlinton last Friday morning. About a half-dozen sheep were killed or badly injured and others are missing. A big old hound was killed in the act of chasing a sheep and two other dogs got away. This is the second time in six months and the third time in a year that these flocks have suffered from town dogs. Many farmers have quit trying to keep sheep because of the dog nuisance.
TO USE WASINGTON’S TROWEL
The trowel used by General Washington when he laid the cornerstone of the capitol of the United States at Washington, D. C. on September 18, 1795, is to be used when the cornerstone of the imposing George Washington Masonic National Memorial is laid at Alexandria, Virginia, November 1, next. This trowel is now the property of Alexandria-Washington Lodge No. 22, A. F. and A.M. of Alexandria, just outside the capital city.
SALE OF CLOVER LICK PLANT
By a deed dated September 15, 1923, A. D. Neill conveyed to the Raine Lumber Company the sawmill and railroad and timber at Clover Lick, in consideration of the sum of $230,000.
The deal transferred about five thousand acres of timber in the Greenbank and Hunt-ersville districts, a band mill at Clover Lick, the railroad, engines, bridge, houses, office and so forth. The railroad is built up Laurel Run and Thomas Creek and passes over the divide to the waters of Thorny Creek…
The revenue stamps on the deed amounted to $230. A good deal of the timber conveyed lies on the road between Huntersville and Dunmore and is a well known forest.
YOUR EARS AREN’T MATES
Do you know your ears are not mates?
They may look alike, be the same length, breadth and depth, but do you know you can hear with one better than with the other?
Your left ear is the best. The telephone did it. Almost invariably, telephone users put receivers to their left ear in order to leave their right hand free to write. As a result, left ears have become far more sensitive than the right. If you don’t believe it, shift into reverse and attempt to hear a telephone message with the right ear.
All telephones are made with this in view and they are known as left hand “phones.”
That is, the receiver hangs on the left side of the instrument and facilitates use in the left hand. ~ W. Va. Utilities
