The Cannery.
d Editor Spectator:
I understand the Perm Canning Co.
are ready toerect a factory near Staun
ton if they can get fifteen hundred
acres of land under contract to grow
s > string ami lima beans, tomatoes and
swt et corn. That the prices they oiler
h an high; more thiin is paid elsewhere,
and smtisfaetory to the growe. That
they propose to take other vegetables,
1 such as squash, pumpkins, beets, okra,
peas, etc., aud fruits like apples, plums,
s pet dies, pears, blackberries, cherries,
Iraslieriies, etc., and pay high prices
for prime quality and tair prices for
fruit not so good.
It seems to me this is an opportuui
, ty not to let pass by, for it means em
ployment to the whole household, ex
termination of weeds, a larpe yield in
rotary crops, enhanced value to the
land. 11 means not only wealth and
material advantage, but better still,
education and development of the body
and brain. The writer has no interest
whatever iv the cannery business di
rectly, hut believes this and similar
industries will double the wealth of i
Virginia, empty her hospitals and pen- i
itentiaiy and revolutionize her system |
of education when this kind of work ;
is taught in public and private schools |
in connection with the curriculum j
now taught. The twentieth century .
demands men of acts, more than men j
ot hook knowledge, men who will do j
something for themselves and commu
nity, instead of living on their wits or f
riding on the backs of others. t
each farmer consult with his t
wife, daughters aud sous and agree to v
put in only that acreage which they
(and the help they can command) will v
do thoroughly well. The profit from o
such an acreage will astonish them, if y
well managed. Two crops a year can
be taken from the same land if plowed, t<
subsoiled and enriched now, so that
frost will pulverize the soil. w

i Letter From Buena Vista.
Buena Vista, Jan. 21.—We are very
. glad to report that Leas & MeVitty

! Give Black harness leather aud extract

A recent additiou to the town is a
Chinese Laundry, which is run by Lav

A very enjoyable german was held
at the opera house last Friday night.
It was led by Mr. Randolph Boiling
aud Mr. Jones, of W. and L Time
will not allow me to give a detailed ac
count of it although I would like to.
The W. C. T. 11. held a yery eu
joyable aud profitable two days meet
ing lagt week, address were made by
Mrs. Hoge, the state president, Rev.
Mr. Hoge, Mrs. Wells and Mrs. E. L.
Emhree, president of the local society.
After the meeting closed Saturday
morning, a society was organized at
Virginia College. Things at, the Col- '
lege are progressing very nicely.
Miss Harris is in Roanoke in consul
tation with the citizens committee iv '
regard to the return of the College to '
Roanoke. We hardly expect the Col
lege will leave Buena Vista because •
the youug ladies are too well satisfied '
with the place.
The students will give an entertain- '
ment at the opera house ou Friday
evening, and we feel satisfied that the '
young men of Bueua Visa aud Lexiug- 1
ton will turn out iv full force to see
the fair youug ladies act. (
A colonial ball will be held at the £
College ou Washington's birthday. I
Basic City Happenings.
The course of events iv Basic are
changing with the change of time. A
few weeks ago all were busy with pre
parations tor celebrating the birth of
Christ, aud for reminding men of the
good will proclaimed between Heaveu
aud earth.
These are now past, and the ladles
are busy with work of another kind.
VVithiu a week or two, they will give
an oyster supper for the benefit of the
Presbyterian church.
On the 25th, the people of Basic and
and Waynesboro will have an oppor
tunity of seeing the Passion Play iv
the Lee Opera House.
Waynesboro has a uew postollice
building, we note with pleasure; and
Basic, we are sorry to say, now has
a saloon. We hope both may do the
people much good, aud little harm. A
few nights since the store of Mr. Smith,
in Basic, was broken into by two
darkies, four revolvers and some other
valuables were taken. But the thieves
who were caught the next evening
will pay dearly for their work.
The public school of this town, un
der the direction of its four teachers,
lias been progressing nicely this term.
The Board of Trustees have repaired
the building and furnished it with
much needed apparatus.

Rev iob Turner.
s Bristol News: One of the most in
- teresting men in Virginia, if Virgin-
I ia can entirely claim him now, is Rev.
i Job Turner, the deaf mute Episcopal
! minister.
His mute eloquence never fails to j
I attract the deaf mntes who always as
-1 semble whenever he preaches and
drink in the sweet of his ministrations
through their eyes.
His gracefui and striking symbols,
his evident inspirations and .earnest
ness as depicted by his actions to the
uninitiated in the sign language, are
very interesting and touches the sym
pathies of those blessed with all the
senses for those who have them not,
in a new light. I
Mr. Turner married a deaf mute i
couple iv Bristol last week. His busy <
life is indicated by a statement in the I
Bristol News, that he then left that I
city to engage in pastoral work as far t
west as Little Rock, Ark, and down to t
Baton Rouge, La. He returns to preach t

BLACKSMITHS
AND WATCHMAKERS.
There are tricks iv all trades hut
ours, is an old saying. There are also
a lot of people who are always willing
todoworka little less than others
without offering any satisfactory rea
son for doing so.
This is true of watch business, and
you will find in nine cases out of ten
the reason is incompetency. A fine
watch needs the service of a good
mechanic and in the bands of the
skilled watchmaker it will giye the
best results and be the cheapest in the
end. Our work, is always guaranteed.

GLASSES!
There is nothing so injurious to
1 the eyes as glasses that greatly insg
, nlfy. They are invariably too strong.
It is not natural for the eyes to see
objects too large or too small. The
object of glasses is to make everything
clear and distinct, but not enlarged.
To place the eyes under perfectly nat
ural conditions and to relieve all over
work and strain. It is to this kind of
work that the optician is especially
trained. He must take a careful
measurement of every curve and mus
cle of the eye. He must be able to se
lect glasses to neutralize and cor
rect every defect. They must be of
the right focus and the right strength
and must be in correct position before
the eyes. If you ought to have glasses,
or believe you ought, I will be glad to
make an examination and tell yon just
what you need. I make no charge for
consultation. —
