of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 4/3/1900.
We don't like so much name for a small thing. Boston-on-Kanawha
is too large for the size of the place. It takes too long to write
it, and one of the rules of writing is to never use a long word when a
short one will express the same thing. It is said that a farmer once
went to hear Webster, the author of Webster's dictionary, speak and after
hearing him, made the remark: "Why Webster is not such a great scholar,
I understood the meaning of every word he said." We do not like to
see a thought hid away beneath a lot of large words. Cabot is large
enough for us.
