What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Jef- ferson out at Harpers Ferry—, he didn't get half the value out of it that I -did in June, 1913 There are all kinds of citizens at .the Ferry, the same as there are everywhere else, but only one Riley—and Riley is the greatest cit- izen, for he collects the tolls of • the two bridgee. t. Harpers Ferry is in West Virginia, 'and the very twee of the state goes tip to where the rivers -split Vir- ginia and Nary -lend so . if one stirs far from. the frontywnd, they have to pay toll to Riley for Riley guards the bridges that join at the tip of Weet Virginia. There are the stories in the elocution Woke of \I stood on the Bridge at Midnight\ and . \Hew Horatio held the bridge in the brave days of old\' , ‘ but Riley keeps two bridgee for the earporatiea that own these spans, from West Virginia into Virginia and Maryland and the aforesaid corporations have no cash registers on Riley; he fills his pockets, then stores the extra money in the office , stove, and anyone protests against the \out- rages of togs,\ Riley nays:! sWhy 'don't you get some stock in the com- pany, then you'd like it\ Whereupon. (—Riley's'manner becoming contagioui —they go an. their -way joyfully.. Tell bridges may be out of date, but they seem quite in, place at Har- pers Perry, and in' fitting sympathy is the Potomac Canal on the Mary- land side, where mules are still the motive power for barges of the tow path, doing a thriving business in drawing cargoes of coati above Cumberland to Washington.. This , is the, canal. which George Washington deseribed as the mighty artery con- necting the east' and the west, thus proving that even the' Father of our Country had a, vague notion as to where the west would eventually wind up. . , Now Harpers Ferry was at first a man's business before it became thgl name of a town. After Harper ,was consigned to mother earth, then came Riley, and locally every one knows -that \Riley's , Ferry\ stands out in histod. The people of the town never fail to call hine Mr. Riley. and he stands in front of his little office day- after day and yea; ofter 'year; acroFs the street a giant 'weeping -willow tree, One of the 'finest spcianens in many a broad mile spreads its protecting shade over itiley'-s place, because one day Ri- ley cut e ,small branch and today it repaying -its creator. Riley is a forceful argument that whatever is , one's calling, it is a euccess if -the tasks are well done ; He fought for the Confederacy, and he will tell you today that his cantle was' right, though he is looking for- ward to . soldiers' . feuniens where the blue and the gray 'are comition brothers. And at that he is certain. tha \Lotuloun's Rangers\ a part of the Union forces acmes the Shenan- doah, never met enough Confederate shells. , Riley knows every horse, dog land cat, to say nothing of every hu- man being in Harpers Ferry. The mothers ask him where their chil- dren. are; he '; papses the sweet- hearts across the bridges and keeps Its promises not to tell the old folk's; he knows the sick „better than,, doctors; in fact no one moves far, from their door posts in Harpers Ferry without coming into contact with Riley; and Riley Bharat, their secrets, their sorrows, their joys— end in the final analysis his part, in the affairs of histerle Harpers Perry have Gunge Din with the dut- ies described by Fling, Laid away in the shadows.
