An unknown correspondent from Big Creek in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following news, which the Logan Banner printed on October 3, 1924:
A little bit of news again from our little city. It makes the Banner more interesting when the Big Creek news are added to its columns.
Our news seems to be scarce in the Banner of late. We all suppose the news bee must have flown away. So there is a few more left any way that will help the dear old Banner put out the Big Creek news.
Everybody seems to be lonely these rainy Sundays. The taxis can’t run.
There was a large crowd attended the Star Theatre Saturday night.
Miss Lou Harmon is very ill at this writing.
Mrs. Allie Chafins and son, Donnie, were the all day guests of Miss Tilda Harmon Sunday.
Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Hager will be citizens of our little town Big Creek.
Remember well and don’t forget, the Logan Banner is the best yet.
So good luck to the dear old Banner.
Every day happenings: Florence and her red dress; Jake and his straw hat. Gracie going up to the store. Pearl going to the post office. Earl and his mud scraper.
We were sorry to hear of the death of Mr. Jack Mullins, brother of Mrs. P.D. Bradberry of this place.
Miss Lulia Mobley was visiting her mother, Mrs. Nannie Mobley, Thursday.
We all sympathized with Mr. and Mrs. Vance of the death of their son, Thomas Vance.
Mrs. Albert Estepp is very ill. We hope for a speedy recovery.
Dr. White Hill is quite busy, as there is lots of sickness around here.
Miss Lilly Estep is the guest of home folks.
