The water Is pure and cold Milk meat and

of the porch The water however does not
bubble like the Iron springs ot Colorado but
Is still and dead I Is cool anti palatable and
s undoubtedly I great tonic Neither ot tho a

ably many a spring near by awaiting discovery
The farm is almost as primitive its the In

The lodgu farm has n history I was
bought some ronra ago by a young man who
had just rdlcttd from harvard Time
eclogues of Virgil had given him a taste for
country life llo hud read stories of time im
mense sheep ranches in New Mexico and Aus
tralia An article describing I small raneh In
Virginia attracted his attention Without ux
perlenco hit visIted the fhennndcah raiiKu am
bought time little turn I cost him iruo Ho
then bought 150 sheep as the busts of an an
ticipated fortune shelr long low barn was
built for their shelter In winter Thetrottlug
troughs within it tell the story of his failure
After a years triul timim graduate of llnrvari
gave it up lie found that lie was losing In
Hteaa making money He had throe times
an many sheep ns the farm would support
Fifty shocp worn enough for it A native
mountaineer might live on tho produce of llltv
sheep but no Harvard grudtinto could subsist
on It Dodge sold the sheep and with what
wis loft of bin fortune l tlr South America
Whether ho Indulged In ranch life there or
not lie was very unfortunate Ho broke leg
and cnmo hack to the United States
lime lunch N I now rented at 7f a year but
the owner holds Its value at fjUOU I tIes
within quarter of a mile of time colebintei
alum spring The same formation that arm
dUld this sprlnl is found upon the Dodge
farm Thu Increase In its value if rent ls due
to this fact rather than to Its capacity > for
sheep raising
At nil events land I very low in tho big
Shenandonh range A Baltimore gentleman
lat year bought 18000 acres the mot of It
within sight of the Dodge farm for 17 cents
an acre It is mountain land covered with
great stretches of pine timber Since then
all the pines have led and tho mountains
look ns though they hud been overrun with
fire Possibly the springs or tho metal founil
In the mountains hereafter will prove of moro
value than tho wood upon tholr blopea
