From The Calhoun Chronicle - Daniels Run News

The Calhoun Chronicle, a weekly newspaper published in Grantsville, West Virginia, has for many years published news from various communities. "Daniels Run News" has been an occasional to semi-regular feature. Here are some transcripts. We hope to add more as time and occasion permit.


Update 5/27/2013

Work in progress

This writer has examined the following microfilm reels:

Calhoun Chronicle 1899 to May 12, 1903. Posting these in progress.

1919 through December 1960. There were a flurry of articles in the 1920s, a few in the early 1930s, and then no news from 1936 through 1943. The news picks up again in 1944. Identified items of interest from 1919 through December 1950 are posted.

Of note are some articles titled "Barberton Ohio Items." This writer speculates that these were written when the regular correspondent was visiting family in Barberton Ohio. Nearly all the news concerned family members of Allen B. Starcher.

The earliest installment of "Daniels Run News" identified so far is from March 4, 1926. Included in this archive are a few other articles from Altizer and other items of interest.

In addition, the "republican" newspaper of Calhoun County, The Grantsville News, is also archived at the library. Some articles from The Grantsville News are reproduced here. Issues from 1902 through 1912 have been examined.

All the articles transcribed below are from The Calhoun Chronicle unless otherwise noted.

All the articles are also archived on a single page without the images AT THIS LINK to facilitate word/name search.

J.J. Starcher, says he wants to get done husking corn in time to sow wheat next fall (1901).

P.P. Bell the artist and photographer will be at the Starkey school house on Daniels run on Friday December the 28th, and will be prepared to do any and all kinds of work. He is a first class workman. Those wanting work done give Mr. Bell a call on that day.

If some people, even in the county of Calhoun would put in their time praying, or reading their Bible that they spend talking about their neighbors it would be better for them, and the community, as well. But we all contain more or less jealousy, and that causes the talk, and we will find in every community, in every literary and professional circle, jealousy has doomed doctors, lalwyers, merchants, school teachers and ministers, and thousands of good men and women. It will delude you with the idea that yooui can build youir self up by pulling some one else down. Se we find that jealousy is the rage of man. Yet in all circles, in all business, and in all professions there is room for straight forward success. Jealousy entertained will not bedward you some but will expel from youi the divine image in which God created you.

Stalnaker, Leach & Co. are still dealing extensively in X-ties.

We have a hoop factory on Daniels run with Camden Goff and De Nitz propritors.

J.L. Goff and wife, whose sickness we heretofore mentioned, are, we are glad to state, improving rapidly.

J.J. Starcher has been driving George Gibson's team for a few days.

Howard Price, son of Dr. Price, who has been in Barbour county for the past two months, has returned home.

We are informed that Dr. Lowe, of Arnoldsburg, is quite sick.

Winter has at last arrived, and the people are making good use of the snow hauling wood and ties.

Our old friend W.H. Wood has been suffering for several days with rheumatism.

It will be remembered that school teachers, like all other professional men, can not suit every body. It depends primarily upon the community whether our public schools shall be what they ought to be. With us, no "paternal" government can reach down and make the scholar greatly different from what the people desire. The people determine how much money shall be spent for schools, and through the officers whom they choose determine what pay the teacher shall receive, and what shall be the general character of the work done in schools. Where the people are awake and intelligent in school affairs good schools will be found. Where the people have little interest, or are mistaken in their notion of what constitutes a good school, there can hardly be a good one. It is certain that in many places the people are not as earnest as they should be, to have their children well taught, nor have they the knowledge that they ought to have as to what constitutes good teaching. The work of the school is supplementary the work of the home. Teacher s some times are held responsible for the work of the mental and moral training of the children. This is a grand mistake. The teacher can only enter into the parents labors at best, and he should be held responsible only for the part that fairly belongs to him. There is much truth in the saying, that the teacher should be a man among men. Inteligent, earnest and active in the things that claim the attention of other good and influential men.

Thr Dr's of this community are kept busy day and night.

Ira Yoak, who has been confined to his room for the past two weeks, is able to be out again.

There are two young folks in the vicinity of Daniels run, that walk two miles to read my Chronicle, to see if their names are in the paper.

Peter Starkey is engaged in hauling goods for All Gunn.

The school under the management of Bertie Nester will close the 22nd of this month.

It is expected tht after school life is closed the pupils will become an integral part of our great being, an intelligent human unit in the body politic.

That the product of the school may be worthy and meet the demands of the State more than mere book knowledge is demanded. There is one point that merits special attention, we as teacher must realize that the pupils best efforts are to be put forth, not only in the acquisition of a thorough knowledge of the branches of our school curricula, but also in learning some of life's most useful lessons, not found in the books. If we accept education as tht which fits man to perform successfully all the duties of public and private life, then our schools must supply those elements of strength, and whether recorded in books or written on the pages of human experience, these elements must be woven into the character of the pupil. Good manners, that key to many doors of success, should be the common legacy from the schools to the boys and girls of the State. A genuine respect for public property should be developed in the mind of every pupil in the State. Through a lack of training upon this subject it has come to pass that public buildings are marked and mutilated in a manner most shameful, and the disgusting condition of many school buildings reflect discredit, not only upon teachers, but also upon the community in which vandalism is perpetrated.
