THE VALUE OF APPLES Recent years have witnessed re . markable advance in tbe fruit growing industry in Virginia, and especially in the Valley counties. Formerly very little attention was given to this important orop, and in many instances apples were al? lowed to rot on tbe ground, or were fed to hogs. All this is obanged now and tbe revenue de? rived from the sale of apples, es? pecially fall and winter apples, is frequently more than tbat re? ceived from all other farm pro? ducts combined. It is not an un? usual thing for apple growers of some counties, notably Frederick, Rockingham, Roanoke and some others, to get as much as $10,000 for the crop in the orchard. A considerable revenue is reoeived in Rockbridge from this source, not only from buyers who sbip the fruit from the county, but also from the residents of Lexington, Buena Vista and other towns of Lockbridge. With proper attention the apple crop of Rockbridge could be made more remunerative than it is at present. Ic many instance it is only a side orop and all the atten? tion it receives is the extra time given from other crops, such as corn and wheat. Did it receive the care and attention given these - crops the landowners would be j more than paid for their time and labor. By properly trimming up hts old orohard and setting out young ones, gradually replacing the old trees, in a few years the farmer would receive more revenue from his apple crop than he now gets from any other source. The same principle applies to other fruits also. A dispatch from Riohmond says that Republican speakers are about to play what they consider one of their highest trump cards in tbe fight for State officers. Their compaign is being made in large part on tbe platform of free school-books and they will now add to this a pledge to obtain as far as possible, these books from home manufacturers. The Re? publicans base their hopes in large measure on the educational fight and believe that they have a chance to win by pushing it vigor? ously. In this they are greatly mis? taken, but they are putting forth strenuous efforts to win popular favor by this impracticable dodge. _ An amendment to the civil ser uice rules, sweeping and compre? hensive in its character,is authoriz? ed by Present Roosevelt. Hereafter a cabinet officer will have the pow? er to remove, summarily and with? out bearing, any civil service employe in his department who, to the personal knowledge of tbe head of the department, has been guilty of misconduct of his duties. By the terms of tbe amendment, tbe oabinet officers must bave personal knowleoge of tbe miscon? duct or inefficiency of the employe whom be purposes to dieoharge. With this personal knowledge, tbe power of the head of the depart? ment is absolute. Richmond is in gala attire today in honor of the visit of President Roosevelt, who reached tbat city at noon and will leave at 7 o'clock this evening on his Southern trip. The decorations are on an elaborate scale, acd tbe parade was a feature. Tbe President delivered an address from capitol square to an immense audience. A banquet was held at the Masonic Temple at 2 o'clock, at wbicb were four hundred guests. Mrs. Roosevelt spent tbe afternoon at the Governor's mansion, as the guest of Mrs. Montague. A lun? cheon was given in her honor. The Emperor of Russia and the Emperor of Japan last Saturday signed their respective copies of the treaty of peace between tbe two countries, thus officially end? ing the war. The treaty went into effect Monday. The Japanese Minister of War issued an order instructing the soldiers in the field to refrain from entieising the terms of the treaty on the ground that the deolarations of both war and peace are the outoome of sovereign power.

Va., Oct. 12tl Editor Gazette .?Where write you from is the Great Level* of Greenbrier, as this country wai called in the old histories, ane this too is a "Land of Memories' in the truest sense. Frankford bad its beginning it a stockade Indian-fort, hence the name Frankford. Capt. Jone Stuart, the historian, from whom we quoted in our last letter,became Col. John Stuart of Greenbrier, and the State of Virginia granted him a tract of three thousand acres of tbe very Anett land in the Greenbrier Valley that runs right up to the edge of tbe town of Frankford. Tbere is no doubt iu tbe mind of your correspondent, but tbat the name of Frankfort, the capital of Kentucky, came from this village, and the thought has ocourred, what would the citi? zens of the handsome Kentucky daughter think of their staid little Virginia mother? During tbe late Civil War, the Greenbrier Valley was border terri? tory, being first in tbe hands of the Confederates, and then occu? pied by the Federals, consequently tbeie was many a bloody drama enacted in this beautiful valley. In the fall of 1862, three com? panies of Confederate cavalry were camped seven miles west of here in Sinking Creek. One of these companies were Rockbridge county men. The Federal troops stationed at Summersville de? termined to capture them and by a night march got between the Confedetates and their pickets. The result waa a complete surprise and a great part of tbe Confeder? ates were captured. Among the prisoners, was the late Lieut. Aioh Lyle, who will be remembered by many of tbe readers of The Gazette. Lieut. Lyle was put on a horse, tbat the saddle be? longed to a man with very long legs,?*nd compelled to ride to Sum? mersville, a distance of thirty-five niles, in tbat condition. Tbe writer bas often beard Lieut. Lyle relate tbe circumstances. Mr. John H. Whitmore, who is io well and favorably known about Lexington, was tbere and a meni :er of the Rockbridge company. Slr. Whitmore escaped and in loing so performed one of the nost daring feats of horeeman ihip tbat was ever performed in Greenbrier oounty throughout the inti re war. The only means of isoape for tbe flying Confederates rae a rickety old bridge over knight's mill-race and the man in ront of Mr. Whitmore went hrough tbs bridge, horse and ider. Mr. Whitmore, having a plendid mount, drcve the spurs, nd horse and rider cleared the iridge and made good their escape. Lnd now, whenever any of the oung fellows of Greenbrier begin 0 boast of their horsemanship, the ld Confederates take tbem to [night's mill-race and show tbem ohn Whitmcre's famous leap; nd as Robert Burns' acoount bi 'om O'Shanter's race over the ridge of Doon, has ever been a lessing to the young people of ie land of "Moor and Crag,"like ise has John Whitmore's famous ide been an inspiration to the oung men of Greenbrier, Seventeen miles north of this lace on the old State road is here the battle of Droop-Moun lin was fought on the 6th day of ovember, 1863. The battlefield i dh top of the mountain on the or-sb side overlooking the Little evels of Pocahontas county, here are a great many men yet ving in Rockbridge county who j members of the 14th Virginia avalry participated in this bat e; and when you ask tbem if ley wert at the battle of Droop [ountain, you will see one of the veetest smiles creep over the ice. This amile, in every case, the result of the recollection of iw well they ran that day, and )W "live to kick another day." One member of tbe 14th Cavalry d not run so well, and was cap ired. This man was John Sht-ri in of Lexington, then a green, 'ave Irish boy of seventeen years ! age. Major Bailey of the 22nd irginia Infantry,rellied the Con iderate forces after their line as broken. Young Sheridan was ie of tbe men who supported him i this last stand. The Major ll mortally wounded right near r-eridan and the latter was oap ired and taken to Camp Chase, bio. (Why this vile pen of a 'ison should be named after the bief Justice of the Supreme ourt of the United States, has ways been a mystery to the riter.) After remaining for a sar at Cunip-Chtae ycung Sheri in and ninety-nine other stout ison-boys were taken to John n's Island, in Lake Elie, three iles out from the city of San isky, Ohio. Theee young private soldiers Bre taken there, without know g whore they were going, and r the purpose of waiting on the mfederate ofHcers tbat were im isonod at Johnson's Island, gainst this the young Confeder es rebelled, and despite all man r of cruelty that was prepetrat on them by the Federal guards, ey had to be brought back to imp Chase, Ohio. Such is "be volent assimilation." Greenbrier county was formed e same year that Rockbridge is, and in many respects tbe two unties are alike. Greenbrier linty was named for Greenbrier rer, and tbe river long before ia taking its name from the amble green briar, that grows in sh abundance on the poor landy 1 of the river bottoms. Axbrioui. Gt pi T al m t* KC bl lt in at sd u* Ltf nu Wt tn Ll Ki an ] ha Ol ] wt bli ab ste tic ap Many Flavoring Extracts Said tc Contain Alcohol A recent dispatch from Washington says that Commissioner Yerkes, after giving patent medicine's witb wlmkej as their chief ingredient a severe blow, has turned his attention to so called essences and extracts whioh have whiskey as their principal stcck. Commissioner Yerkes has written a letter to a prominent druggist decid? ing that where alcoholic compounds called "essences of lemon, vanilla, cinnamon," etc., or tinctures ot es? sences of ginger, are made for sale in prohibition districts for use as bever? ages, every merchant selling them without holding the requisite special tax-stamp as a liquor dealer under the internal revenue laws is subject to criminal prosecution as well as to as? sessment to special tax and penalty, and the manufacturers of tbese com? pounds are .involved In the same liability, and also in liability as rec? tifiers. lt is stated by officials of the internal revenue bureau that prohibition com? munities throughout the country consume an enormous amount of these alleged essences of lemon, va? nilla, cinnamon and ginger, and heretofore quantities of it bave been sold by country merchants and others as "flavoring extracts." According to the information in the hands of the internal revenue bureau, the sales were sufficient In some communities in one day to have flavored all the pies mado in thc neighborhood for live yean", As there was no Internal rev? enue tax, the manufacturers of these "essences" proceeded to increase the quantities of whiskey in the stuff, with the result that many of them contained more thau 50 per cent, of alcohol. The goods had no sale outside of prohibition communities. The action of Commissioner Yerkes, together with hi? aotiou as to patent medicines containing large amounts of alcohol, promises to load to the greatest fight on che whiskey question generally ever known, at the coining session of Congress. An attempt will be made to impose a tax on all such articles according to the amount of alcohol they contain, unless scientific officials of the government declare that tbe articles containing tbo whiskey is really of value and importance in a medical way. The leading magazines of.tbe country, Harper's, Collier's and the Ladies" Home Journal,are arrayed against the patent medicine people and are printing columns declaring that no greater danger ever threatened the poeple of the country than in the con? sumption of these medicines, lt is declared that more intemperance ls .red by their use than if barrels of whiskey were consumed. The legitimate whiskey interests of the ?ountry are also opposed to the leniency with which the patent medi ?ino people (that is, those making whiskey medicines) have boon treat id. Educational Conference to Be Held in Lynchburg The Co-operative Education Com nission of Virginia will meet in con? tention in Lynchburg on .November 9th, 30th and December 1st.
