From the desk of Mrs. Jane Price Sharp
Reports of bear are coming in from all around. Argile Arbogast and his dogs have been called out several times but so far they haven’t gotten the bears.
Earl Beverage, of Clover Lick, beat Goldilocks last week. He was out squirrel hunting on his land on Laurel Run and saw six bears, two big ones, two middle sized ones, and two small ones. Having only light shot, he just watched them for a long time. But then he went back to the house and got his son, Richard, and another gun and this time Mr. Beverage killed one of the middle sized ones weighing 110 pounds and that finished one menace to his sheep. The next time out he didn’t find any.
Mrs. Rush McNeill found a small land turtle in the road last Tuesday. I don’t know much about them but it seemed right small for this time of year.
Motion was made by Fred C. Burns, and seconded by J. W. Moses, voted upon and carried to submit application for approval for three major work projects in the Town of Marlinton. One for Streets. One for the Water Plant, and the largest for a municipal sewage treatment facility plant.
The County Court wants to congratulate the election officials for their work on November 6. After canvassing the votes on Tuesday they feel this was the best job of any election in their experience.
MHS Senior Play
The game between Hastings and Winnebagushi High has been postponed because of a peculiar illness which has overtaken the entire team at Winnebagushi High School. Two members of the high school have been accused of poisoning the team and the plot thickens in the three-act comedy entitled, “Beauty and the Beef” to be presented by Marlinton High Senior Class, November 16 at 8:00 p.m. in the school’s auditorium.
Delmos Barb as “Beef” Anderson, football captain at Winnebagushi High, makes up in persistence what he lacks in brilliance.
