The high water which exceeded any record back to 1913 for Ravens- wood last week reaching a stage o£ 51.1 feet, did very little damage to the town. The chief cost of the flood waters was a general clean-up of the properties along the two blocks next to the river front, and the moving of furniture back into the homes. Local schools opened Wednesday. after a three-day vacation on ac- count of flood conditions. The high- ways out of Ravenswood were put into condition this week after be- ing flooded over Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and although the train service had been cut off since Thurs- day of last week, it was believed it ·would be resumed within the next few days.

Chambers and Mrs. Alice Mason, of this city, are the grandparents. Those who had pleasant illusions about certain old English copper coins containing a note which is worth a fortune now with accum- ulated interest have still another awakening j o l t in a statement from the curator of the American Numismatic society in a letter re- ceived by a man connected with the Bank of Dunbar. The legend about the coins is "absolute bunk," according to Howland Wood, of New York, cu- rator of the society. The story is that in 1797 King George III of England, caused to be struck a dozen copper coins, in one of which was hidden a 2,500 pound note bearing six per cent interest. Ten of the coins are sup- posed to have been turned into the mint, leaving two in circula- tion. Last winter one of the sup- posed coins turned up in Charles- ton, and while only two were sup- posed to exist in the world, soon they turned up in considerable numbers. Here's what the spokesman for the numismatic society has to say: "There is absolutely no founda- tion concerning the story that cer- tain pennies or two penny pieces struck in 1797 have anything con- cealed within them. The issue was very large and the coins are still common. "This story has been fastened onto coins of France and other countries. If one would stop to think there would be no way of concealing anything inside with- out it showing, also the weight of the pieces would be different than those that were solid and could be told instantly by the first person receiving one of these. "Therefore, you can dismiss this legend as absolute bunk." Mrs. Paul C. Starkey and Mrs. M. D. Bishop as assistant hostesses. A short program had been arranged for this meeting, and the entertain- ment also included a novel St. Pat- rick contest, in which Mrs. D. E. Cole won the prize. The meeting of the Kolah club which was scheduled for the last Friday evening at the home of Mrs. W. J." Grimm was postponed on ac- count of illness. TWO HELD FOR JURY IN LOGAN George and Lee Kinley Accused of Robbing, Hitting Ben Lowe LOGAN, March 28.--Grorgo Kin- ley and his brother, Lee, waived preliminary hearing when arraigned before Magistrate Elbert Smith and were bound over to the grand jury at the May term of court. Lee Kin- ley was charged in two separate warrants sworn out by Ben Lowe | with armed robbery an:l conspiracy to inflict bodily harm, while George Kinley was charged with conspiracy. They have been released from the county jail on bail. According to Corporal J. E. Chil- ders. of the state police, the Kinley brothers, along with Ben Lowe and Charlie Short, went to the Mecco filling station around 2 o'clock Tues- day morning. Corporal Childers said the inves- tigation showed that the men drank several bottles of beer together, and that Short and George Kinley" en- gaged in a fight over politics. Ben Lowe managed to separate them and took Short in his automobile up the slate highway about 200 yards and ! j parked alongside the road. Lowe told the officers that the Kinley brothers came up to the car. one on each side, and pulled them out, and that Lee struck Lowe over the head with a hard instrument which he believed to be an automobile crank.
