MORRISVILLE. VA? Nov. ".-Two hun?
dred thousand dollars already spent, all
the talenti and energy of one of the most
successful nnd practical miners that Col?
orado ever produced concentrated for five
years on one object, the services of es?
sayera, chemists. Inventors, skilled work?
ers In wood hnd Iron called Into requisi?
tion almost constantly during the same
period, and up to the present Urne not five
cents real zed out of the venturo, are reul
facts about a mine located flvo miles a
little west of south from Morrlsvllle.
A mill house that would compare favor?
ably with tho big buildings of the Cripple
Creek country and not a shaft sunk as
yet. But these are not the only things
that excite people's wonder: thoso Inter?
ested In th.s mine own five thousand acres
of land in one tract, 'ten thousand In an?
other and various small tracts, the best
water power on the Rappahannock river,
with a solid front of seven nvles on the
left bank of that river and part of this dis?
tance both binks are In theLr possession.
"What do they want with so much land?"
"W:ll they make a success of the mine?"
are questions that are being constantly
asked; questions that no one answers.
And these extensive purchases of land In
the past five years have not Increased the
price oi land ten cents an acre.
The big mill house built on t'.ie hillside
Is In reality a vast experimental plant
teeming on every pide with unique and
wonderful sights. Ono strange piece of
mechanism (s turned sway from only to
gaze with awe and wonder upon a new
and more strange one until the sightseer
ieels that he Is treading on almost an en?
chanted land, and when he comes out
Into the open It Is like stepping irom an?
other world. A deep admiration creeps
over one ior the master mind that guide*
all this extensive plant, and the workmen
that labor in this eren tve and almost un?

be the most fortunate of mortals. Every
courtesy Is shown to the visitor, and with

Interesting objects at this Mining Experi?
mental Plant will be given here a? any?
thing like a detailed description of the dif?
ferent processes being tried for the sav
Ing of the gold would make a respecta?
ble volume in Itself. A lively Interest by
most visitors is taken In a machine that
blows away the lighter portion of the
finely pulverized ore a? It passes through,
and saves the heavier and valuable part.
Another Interesting and most complicated
piece of roach nery somewhat resembles a
child's cradle, elevated at one end suffi?
ciently to permit the finely pulverized ore
to pass slowly over Its length. A long
wooden arm?a masterpiece of workman?
ship In Itpelf?extending the full lon.cth
of the cradle, moves back and furili, and
the hundreds of fine wires that thickly
stud Its under side Ike the bristles of a
brush are electro-magnetized so that as
they s-wesp Just above the surface of the
cradle every particle of metal In the finely
pulverized ore Is attracted by this electro?
magnetic brush and Is carried Just pnet
? he edge of the cradle, when the current
of the electricity Is automatically shut off
for an instant and the brush drops Its
precious freight Into a trough and swings
across the cradle to a trough on the op.
poslte side. These are ore crushers of dif?
ferent sizes and patterns, some of al?
most unlimited capacity and capable of
reducing tho oro to any degree of fineness.
There Is a roaster with a capacity of fifty
tons per day, a dryer with a capacity of
thirty tons per day, and for the "cyan- \
Ide process." which will be tried shortly
on a large scale, there are sis large tanke, ?
each one about a? large as the average ?
swimming pool of the summer resort*, j
Each day except Sunday fifty tons of j
roasted and finely pulverized ore Is placed
In ono of these tanks with the requisite
amount of cyanide, filled with water and |
allowed to macerate seven days, when the
liquid portion containing the cyanide of
gold is drawn off Into another tank, from
which It flows steadily In a small stream
through a bed of fine zinc shavings that
catoh the cyan'de of gold.
Every precaution Is taken against fire.
The roofs are painted with a wash of lime,
salt and alum, ah example that might
be well followed by others. One fifth as
much alum as lime Is used end the wash
sticks better on old and dangerous shin?
gle roofs than new ones. A huge tank
of water with a walkway is un the wmb |
of the roof, while hose with suitable con
rocthn for turning on the water are found
In all parts of tho rolli house. There are
two dynamos for electric lighting and
other purposes. One Is small, Inexpen?
sive and simple In the management, Just
what every farmer In the State of Vir?
ginia ought to own.
After five years of testing, planning and
preparing, Mr. R. H. Duckett. the mana?
ger and part-owner, ' expects to moke In
a few days a trial run on a large scale
of the "cyan de process" mentioned above
?the most promising of the many pro?
cesses pieviously tried In a small way.
The failures In gold mining In the past
in Virginia have been due, Mr. Ducmju
asserts, not to a lack of gold In th*-.
ground, but to a lack of suf?c.ent capi?
tal to develop the Industry. He says that
in almost all the ore that he has exam?
ined In this State he finds the gold Is In
very small particles and In such close
combination with sulphur, selenium and
tellurium that the proctEses that are suc?
cessful In other plaoes w;ll not answer
here. To prove It he finely pulverized
some ore, divided it Into two equal por?
tions, one of which he put luto a glass
Jar with certain chemicals, filled it with
water and left It to stand while he pro?
ceeded to "pan out" the other by the
well-known method. A very slight trace
of gold was seen In the pan. From the
portion placed In the glags Jar by ft mora
Intricate process ho extracted a body of
gold about as large as a shirt button. Ho
exhibited a sample of ore from his pos?
sessions here that will assay ?.?? to the
ton and In which the free gold was
plainly v.elble under a powerful magnify
A large room on the second floor, with
an enoimous quantity of glass on the
t ide. facing south to let the light in, is the
domain of Mr. Rlcker, an Inventor and a
clever worker in wood and Iron. To peep
In this room filled with Innumerable tools
of all maites and patterns, the walls cov?
ered with diagrams and plane, tables and
benches covered with patterns and blue
pilnts, while new and strange-looking
pieces of mechanism In various degrees
of construction are seen in all parts of
the room, Is like a g) mpie Into a work?
shop m fairyland. He showed an emery
wheel worked by a toot pedal that will do
twice as much execution and do It easier
than the ordinary grindstone and the en?
ti:? r.g only costs about five dollars.
Another interesting spot is the labora?
tory filled with fiorence ilasks, funnels,
retorts, test tubes, mortars, cupels, cru?
cibles, furnaces, st?nde, baths, lu many

es of saving the gold. Oftentimes he will

Besides being a fin? chemist, a gifted
oiator and a w.dely traveled man. Capt,
Collins seems to have at his fingers e?.us
the history of alinoti every known mine,
piet;nt or past. Interested with Mr. R.
H. Ducken In this mining venture is a
Mr. Stevens, of New York city, who It
reputed to be enormously wealthy,
Mr. R. H. Duckett, the individual who
watches over and guides this vast plant,
|s a stirring, breezy Western man, whose
very handclasp speak? of pluck, pers??
v?rance and 6lncerliy. whose every move,
ment indicates great energy and determl
| nation. Plain and unaffected Jn manner
? and dr<m, he lespises the idle and syco?
phant. Besides the technical knowledge,
? practical experience and captai that have
j teen ub?d here, a larger ?mount of f^nh

not mean to him the filling of an easy

a fast horse Is tho way he rests.
FINE HORSES. ' '
The Kentucktan never lived that loved a
fine horse more dearly than ho does, and
Texas never produced a more daring
horseman. Two at least of his hors*s
come within the 2:80 class, and ho took
your correspondent out to ride behind one
for which he refused more money than
the house he has lived In for five years
cost to build. For half a mile after leav.
Ing the house the road was s, level, well
constructed dirt road; thence It wound
narrow, crooked and rutty through the
towering oaks and the dense underbrush.
Occasionally a glimpse would be given
of a squalid little cabin, .with.its minia?
ture clearing; again a somewhat better
looking farm and buildings would greet
the eye. 8ometimes the buggy wheels
would pass over a stump or a fallen tree,
and frequently the end of the hub passed
?within an Inch of some giant oak: yet
there was not ono mile of the six that
was not covered within 3:S0.
The finest body of oak timber now to
be found In lower Fauquler Is owned by
Mr. Ducket, and If he ha? had one offer
made for railroad ties, he has had fifty;
Every two years, In February, ha bu'nr?
V? woods through, thus preven.in g forest
fires, without damaging the oaks and
other trees, then dormant; a hint that
many farmers in this State might take
"More money is made off of the farms
than on them," was the motto of the
majority of the people who lived In the
section referred to abov? before It was
bought up by Mr. R. H. Duckett By
this they mean that every one wtio han?
dles what the farmer produces makes
money out of It, except the farmer him?
self. Living on land gently rolling, ca?
pable of easy Improvement, and e.?po
clally adapted to fruit growing, with
farming the main Industry for mile?
around, the main body of the Inhabitants
seemed to devote a minimum amount of
thought to the agricultural poaslblllt'e*
of their land. They had reached that
condition that it was doing them a pos
itlve kindness to Jolt them out of the
old ruts, even If they had received no
material consideration for thrt> land.
Coming from sturdy Scotch and Irish
ancestors, what they need are new Ideas
and Industrial training such as their
previous surroundings did not give them.
The labyrinths of Crete and Egypt wer?
In the primer class In comparison with
the maze of roads thnt wind and orou
to the tiny cabins hidden away In these
deep woods. It Is said. that "neither
death nor the tax collector can find a
man In there," . '
While the mine furnishes' employment
to many white men. If it should prove
a failure, lower Fauquler would et'll owe
muoh to Mr. R. H. Duckett for the ex?
ample he has set of energy, Industry,
publlc-splrltednes? and his kindness tc
tho?e lese fortunate In this world's goods,
While prtncely In his generosity, he Is
always practical. He aided by about
il?o tho erection of the new high sr.hoo
building In Morrisville! he has taker

his time, he spent at leant $iC0 of his owr
money, In addition to the public funds

A cl?ver. vivacious, black-eyed West
era woman, with o wealth of raven tress
e?, Is Mrs. Duckett. who is Just abou
as nervy a handler of horseflesh as he
husband. In the summer, when the road
are hard and dry, their thlrteen-year-oh
daughter will often drive a span of ?need?
horse? ten miles to Remington and bac?
and Mr. Duckett would think that hi
horse? had been ruined and the hono
of the family Injured It she was ten min

"W|)J Mr. Duckett make a success o

the earnest good wishes of al? who kno^

Bossy Bell and Mary Gray. So far a?
we know there Is nothing remarkable In
the etrpeture or product of these two hi.Js.
Tho soil continues to produce nnnuar

Bell and the InsUtutlon for the Deaf
and the Blind Is on a neighboring kn?ll

A very few people In Stnunton really
know that Besy Bell and Mary Gray !
were so named. It has been currently |
reported that Bessy Bell and Mary Gray I
wero two young girls who were murdered j
by Indians on these mountains many
years ago, while ehtnqueptn hunting ?
There Is, however no foundation to this
BESSY BELL AND MART GRAY.
Bessy Bell and Mary Gray were named
by Col. John Lewis, one of the earlier
settlors of Augusta county, and were
probably named after two hills In County
Tyrone. Ireland. The names are of Scotoh
Irlsh origin. According to tradition, Mary
Gray's father was laird of Lenoch and
Bessy Bell's of Klnvald. An Intimate
friendship existed between the two you ne
ladles, and while Betsy Bell was on a
visit to Mary Gray In the year 1645, the
plague broke out In the neighborhood.
To escape this they built a bower r.eisr
Lenoch House, In which they lived (or
some time. The plague raged with much
fury*, they catching it from a young man
who was In love with both of them, and
who had brought them food. Th<*y, died
In this bower and were burlod near the
house of Lenoch, near the River Almond,
wh'ch Is seven miles northwest of Perth.
About the year. l?7i. a now proprietor
took possession of Lenoch. This pro?
prietor was shown a heap of stone which
wero covered with thorns and briers,
as that of the burial place of Bescy Boll
and Mary Gray. Later on he removed
all the rubbish, made the grave up double,
and planted shrubs end flowers around
It. and built a wall around the spot. He
fixed a large stone : In this place bearing
the names of "Bessy Bell" and "Mary
Gray/' Later on these names were car?
ried from Scotland to Ireland and applied
to two mountains in the County of Ty?
rone, near the town of Ornagli; and by
the Sootch-Irlsh setUers were brought to
the Valley of Virginia. Tho old Irlvh
name for. Bessy Bell as "Sllabli-trulm,"
which, when ? translated, means tho
"mountain of the?-elder?! ::

It must be confessed that Bessy Bf-1!
and Mary Grey cannot boast of the cedars
of Lebannon and the dew of Herman, or
the excellency of Carmel. Even the ????
pect from the higher peak does not fully
compensate for the toi] of climbing the
rugged ascent. Bessy Bell Is no Ptsgan,
but of her It may be said emphatically.

who love the picturesque, must have ob?

beauty sometimes ? resented after a
shower of rain, by the rays of a setting
sun lingering of a summer evening upon
her leafy summit. And then when the
clouds gather around her head, and

doubUeas goodly mountains, but what are
they to Bessy Bell and Mary Gray? No
Staunton boy, coming home from his
wanderings, ever fallu to look uut for
the old familiar hills, and to hail them
at first sight with a feeling akin to rapt?
COL. JOHN LEWIS.
Col. John Lewis, who very likely named
these two mountains, was a native of
Donegal county, Providence of Ulster,
Ireland, and of Scotch-Irish descent. He
came to America after a bloody affray
with an oppressive landlord In Irclano.
As the story runs, an Irish landlord
owned the land that was leased to Lewis,
and undertook to eJect'Lewis In a lawto-M
manner. With a band of retainers he
repaired to the place, and upon the re?
fusal by the tenant to vacate, fired Into
the house, killing an invalid brother und
wounding Lewis' wife, Lewis rushed
from the house and dispers?e; his assail?
ants, but not until after their leider and
his steward had been killed. After h's en?
counter with the Irish landlord, Lewis
took rtfuge In an old hou*e on the banks
?of the Boyne. and emhii'ked on the first
ship for America. His wife later nu,
followed him to America. Lewis Cree?,
which runs through Stauntnn. was named
I after John Lewis, and his grave, which
is now in a dilapidated cond tlon, Is near
?taunton on a prominent knoll, and on
the farm formerly ownod by him. After
furnishing rive sons to the American Rev.
