Rheumatoid is not new to me because my brother fought it in vain by volunteering for gold therapy 30 years ago, His courage made it possible for others with the same affliction to live vow comfortable, productive lives today. My own overwhelming desire to recover from this malady and lead a normal life again has been constant. My family and I would like to ackno(Ntedge and thank the many people who have contributed to the success I am gaining in this fight for recovery. It has been 22 years since I taught school, and I am particularly grateful to the many former students who have remembered me in so many different ways. Upon the request of a cousin, a very lovely lady delivered flowers to me in the hospital last Sunday. Afer 10 minutes of conversation we recognized each other as having been room mates at WVU 35 years ago. We did not hear the announcement that visiting hours were overl I wouJd also like to give special thanks to a lady by the name of "Katie" Waggoner who has provided me with a catering service which  would normally be impossible to obtain in Glenville. It gives me great pleasure toannounce that I am of the opinion that Glenville is a wonderful = place to live, and there couldn't be more considerate, kind and gentle people found anywhere.

Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Alfred Mathess, Brian and Jamie. of Straight Answers From Your Power Company Why Is My Meter Reading Sometimes Estimated? Monongahela has 47 employes whose job it is to read about 301,000 electric meters. Each meter must be read on a certain day to meet the schedule for preparing and mailing your bill. If a meter cannot be read on schedule it is usually because of an unexpected absence of a meter reader (usually due to illness), extreme weather conditions or a service emergency which prevents a meter reader from completing his assigned route. It's Not Just Guesswork On those few occasions when we cannot read your meter on schedule, we estimate--not guess-- the reading. The estimate is based on your past use of electricity for reasonable accuracy. Washington, West : Virginia, were weekend guests of Clarence and Maxine Mathess. They also attended the Ham Supper at the Church. Leon Law has gone to live with his sister and brother, in-law, Wilbur and Rella Yeager, at Morgantown. Eva Stallman is a patient at the Clarksburg Hospital Center. She has been very ill, suffering a heart attack. We wish you a speedy recovery. Eva. Russell Ware was operated on for a cataract in a Charleston Hospital on October 19. Get well soon, Russell. Mr. and Mrs. Adrian Adams, Beverly and Beth were weekend guests of Page and Reba Ware and the Ezra Adams. They also attended the Ham Supper. Little Sarah Ware, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Ware of Parkersburg has about recovered from burns she received at her home. Hope she will soon be feeling good. This Is one in a series of replies to questions being asked by our customers. Answering today is A. W. Scheib, vice-president, dlvi. sion operstio. A. W. Scheib If, however, the estimate is not exact, down to the last k!lowatthour, no harm is really done. When your meter is read on the next scheduled date, an accurate reading will adjust for any errors we may have made in the estimate--up or down. This practice of sometimes estimating a read- ing is much more economical than hiring additional people to help read meters only in emergency situations. We are trying to hold down your cost of electricity as best we can.

Loretta Fox is suffering from an ailing back, and isn't feeling too well. Opal Wilson, who spent a month in the Calhoun General Hospital ecently, is able to walk from her bed to her chair in the next room. As ippled up as she is, I'd say she is ing pretty good.

Mrs. Gainer will be 93 her next birthday. I'd say she is doing all right. She certainly has a good outlook on life. Mrs. Fern Stutler isn't feeling so well, and this damp chilly weather isn't helping her to feel better. Perhaps we'll get our "Indian "Summer," yet. Lost a couple of our hunters yesterday. They left around noon, and rather depressed, I think. Their luck wasn't too good, they empty-handed Better luck boys.
