County's Division Impedes Progress in 1907


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 4/9/1907.

In the controversy at the courthouse, Wednesday, over the bridge proposition, it was plainly evident that there are two streams of water in Calhoun county, namely:  The West Fork and the Little Kanawha river, and it was just as evident that the people who populate these two respective valleys are not united and cemented into one whole.  If this Mason and Dixon line that divides them could be for a few years obliterated, it would not be a great while until Calhoun county would be as good as any county.  Until it is there will be nothing of any consequence done to improve her.
