Editor Pokes Fun at Embarassed Barber in 1910


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 5/17/1910.

Andrew Rogers, Grantsville's popular tonsorial artist, was in all kinds of trouble Monday morning. He took a little trip Sunday over in the neighborhood of Trace Fork, where his business was so "pressing" that he was delayed till a late hour at night, after which he returned to town. Early Monday morning he was called to the telephone and informed by a young lady at Trace Fork that he had left his own and taken her father's horse; that the horse he left had been hitched up to the plow but refused to qualify in the capacity of a plow horse, and intimated strongly that he was a respectable livery horse from Smith & Huffman's barn. As soon as Andrew heard this he rushed to the barn and quickly dispatched a boy to exchange the horses and it will be many a day before he hears the last of it.
