Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 11/27/1900.

What is Thought of the New Editors

S.C. Barr has sold the Calhoun Chronicle to Bell and Hays.  The junior member of the firm is "Bob" Hays, formerly of this place.  The Chronicle is a well established paper and a good investment.  The Calhoun Chronicle makes a very creditable showing under its new management. - Glenville Pathfinder.

Messrs. S.P. Bell and R.E. Hays have purchased the Calhoun Chronicle of S.C. Barr, and that paper appears under the new management this week.  We wish it success. - Kanawha News.

The familiar and fearless newspaper man, Sam Barr, of the Calhoun Chronicle has disposed of his paper to Messrs. Bell and Hays.  We welcome the Chronicle under its new management to our sanctum, but are sorry to lose Mr. Barr from the fraternity, and hope ere long he will be wielding his artful pen in newspaperdom. - Spencer Bulletin.

Col. Sam C. Barr's sprightly newspaper the Calhoun Chronicle, has been bought by S.P. Bell and Robert E. Hays and the new owners have taken charge.  While the Gazette regrets to see Col. Barr retire from the newspaper work, it is of the opinion that the new editors will attain for themselves a high place in the fields of journalism. - Ritchie Gazette.
