W. E Tribbett, the other nier ut, does a fine general business,! des ma king a specialty of tan bark, 'cross ties for the 15. & O Ry., and bee hives and furnishings for them. He bought by phone 50 cords of tan bark that day and last year over 300 cords, shipping it mostly to the Harrison burg tannery. Hundreds of cross ties 1 have been gathered at the station for j shipment and a good sized forest seems to be piled up in sawed and hewed lots around the station repre senting a goodly sum to the energetic land owners of the community. Mr. Tribbett has sold during the past sea son some 300 bee hives to the bee men of the neighborhood who have devel oped quite an industry in fine honey. Another industry not known to many, is the Spottswood cannery, owned by Messrs J. A. Spencer, S. F. McClure, Geo. P. Lightner, Enos Ott, Jos. W. Miller, A. G. Brown and J. M. McClure. They put up easily 2,100 cans daily and can nearly double thpit output. They have turned out over 3,000 cases one season. Their goods are bought by Bowling & Spotts, who take the whole product of the factory, the goods findiDg a ready sale with their trade and standing as high on the market as any brand. Two hun dred fufhels of tomatoes to the acre is an average yield, some farmers rais-1 iug under favorable circumstance as much as 400 bushels, at 20 cents perl bushel, giving them better results than almost any crop they can make.

T. McClure. The paper has been in his family, like his fpirm. since 1822 His father, who died iii 1574 at the good old age of 80, left him the farm upon which he had lived j all bis life and he is a veteran of the civil war. One of the oldest settlers of t the county, Mr. Beverly, made th« j deed to Mrs. Ramsey in 177-1 She! made it next to a Mr. Fulton, and he to John M. McClure, the father of tbe j present owner, iv 1818, he leaving it to J nis sou, M. T., the present owner, at his death in 1874. Mr. McClure has a I fragment of the Spectator dated Nov. 4.1825, which his father had pre served and which contains some queer old notices and advertisement! inter-1 e=ting to the reader* of today, some of which we will publish later. He also Id me a curious old document v with age, printed by Kenton ir, the first editor of the Specta pvhich has the following heading: ract of the Laws relating to the atment, Powers and Duties of I irveyors of Roadi, prepared by erk of the County Court of Au , 1835." In this age of good roads and schemes for better, some useful in formation may be gleaned by thoie in terested in tbe subject. The docu ment may be seen by calling at tbe Spectator office. t. c. m.
