A correspondent named “A Flirt” from Harts Creek in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on February 16, 1923:
Saw in Cherry Tree news where the boys had gone to Hart and ruined their tummies on chicken. I don’t doubt the truth of the matter for when one stays in a town like Cherry Tree where there is nothing to eat but salt pork and baking powder bread, they “natcherly” want chicken and some of the cooks on Hart have won prizes on cooking. So come again, boys, when you get tired of powder and paint, salt pork, and baking powder bread.
Seems like our boys are afraid of saying much about their S.L.T.’s of town. Reason—might be a drug store doll. Call sometimes when not expected, boys.
