City and County Brevities

Another United States flag with an interesting history, now owned by Elizabeth Kern who resides on Amherst Street, was unfurled last Sunday which was Flag Day. Measuring eight by 14 feet, it was greatly admired by many persons, particularly tourists who stopped to inquire of its history. Mrs. Kern said the flag was purchased by the late Charles Fuller, then foreman of the Cumberland Valley roundhouse at this place at the beginning of the Spanish-American war and was first raised on a pole over the engine house by Mr. Fuller's daughter, Mrs. Mary Rosenberger, who resides on Peyton street. The flag was flown over the engine house until it was torn down. Last Sunday it was attached to an improvised pole. Mrs. Kern's two grandsons, Leo and Joe Campbell, sons of Col. Joseph E. Campbell, Medical Corps, U.S. Army now at Sherman, Texas, expect to erect a permanent flag pole in the near future and the banner will be flown each day.
