I BASIC CITY MOVES TO THE FRONT. important Manufacturing Enterprises In Full Blast. Basic City, Oct. B.—Basic City has so long been quiet that it will surprise many who read the Spectator, as much as it did the writer, to find that there are three large manufacturing plants here now in operation, and the buzz of machinery with the whistle of steam and the moving of freight, the coming and going of operatives both male and female, give the river section of the town an air of busy life that is refreshing «Dd inspiring. The Basic Furniture Company has been longest established and is fully under way and doing a fine business, the concern con fining itself to the manufacture of chamber suits of oak alone. This is the former plant of the School Desk Factory, a building admirahly suited to its present purpose. The officials in charge are Superintendent Edward E. Rueter, and Mr. T. h. Keene, secretary and treasurer. C. M. Fauber, of Waynesboro, is the fore man, and Mr. T. O. Henkle, of B*sic City, shipping clerk. The system seems perfect, and with 65 or 70 em ployees, each busy in his own depart ment, everything moves like clock The factory turns out over 300 suits per month, ranging in price from $16 to $45 for a suit —consisting of bed, bureau and wash stand —the work manship very handsome, the mirrors of French plate glass, and the work is sold in every seaboard State from Maine to Texas, being pushed by traveling salesmen who aTlso cover ter ritory in Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The writer found Mr. Henkle pack ing up a large order for 52 pieces, very pretty, to go way down the South American coast to the istaud of Trina dad, near the mouth of the Oriuoco River, for furnishing a new hotel there. Basic City making furniture for South America looks like progress indeed, and orders are a mouth ahead of the supply and crowding them so that the comyauy is compelled to en large its capacity or lose busiuess. Iy are therefore replacing their old orse power engine and boiler with 15 horse power engine and 150 er, which will enable them to make tuits per month, employing a con rably larger force, making 85 to 90 on the pay roll, le Shenandoah Woolen Company I just started in operation a large I valuable plant for the manufacture blankets, having been delayed i time to time by the difficulty in I ring expert men to take charge of different departments of their I c Mr. T. A. Sammis is the treas of this company, and has his s iv the elegant $17,000 pressed E building which the company has :ht, and during the boom was the : building Basic City Man turing, Mini™ & Land Co. Mr. I nis is a son of tbe president of the Dominion Steamship Co., and a ressive business man. The Gen Manager is Mr. John J. Bockie, well known to many business men of Staunton, as the gentleman who was negotiating with the city council of I Staunton for the establishment of a I knitting factory in the Market House, a valuable enterprise which miscarried I last winter, much to the disappoint- Eof many progressively disposed us of Staunton. But Mr. Bockee irrepressible business man, and impressed with the business ad-1 vantages of this section, organized an other strong company, with some of the same men and purchased the Ible factory upon the river, adja ;o the Furniture Factory and two of land, added largely to it, a tory brick building, and have iped it with improved machinery with other improvements cost 0, in addition to the purchase price of the property; with 30,000 square feet of floor space in the two large buildings, with six sets of card ing machines and appliances, 37 broad looms—blanket size, and the most ex pert card spinner, weaver and finisher to take charge of and instruct the new operatives drawn from the town and neighborhood, they have begun to turn out blaukets of fine quality. New girls are daily added to the working force which will, when full, number about one hundred, with a capacity of 1,500 pairs of blankets per week. Mr. Bockee has not relinquished his scheme for having a knitting mill in Augusta county either. So Strongly has he impressed upon his New York friends the advantages of such an en terprise in this section that they have formed another company and offered to build him a factory for the purpose and turn it over to him upon his own terms, and the location of it at Basic near tbe woolen mills is under consid eration. I But the largest and most valuable plant at Basic is the Dawson Manufac turing Comyany, now established on and in the property of the old Basic I City Car Works. It has for its officers Alexander McNabb, president, J. P. Chapman,secretary and treasurer, with Jos. W. Dawson, superintendent, and J. H. Oawson, director. It is a West Virginia corporation and is engaged in the manufacture of a new invention, a field corn shucking machine. This machine is drawn over the held strad dling the corn rows. It snaps off the ripe ears of corn and shucks them clean, when they are thrown into a wagon driven along by the side of the machine. The machine will be sold principally to great corn growers of the West at the price of $225 and will be a great labor saver. The company has over 1,000 orders for the shuckers, and when the com pany gets fairly to work, the great buildings will hum with business, and as this West Virginia company has all the financial backing that is necessary it is expected that its success will bring into operation at this place one of the largest and most valuable man ufacturing enterprises In the country, and prove a factor in building up the aspiring young city. The water of the splendid lithia spring at Basic City, which has long had a local reputation, has been brought to popular notice lately by a company recently organized here with Mr. A. \V. Williamson as president aud manager. Its rare medicinal prop erties are becoming known abroad att its remarkable cures of those afflicted with rheumatism, kidney and btadder and other kindred troubles are estab lished. It is extensively advertised bottled and shipped to various points east and north, and pushed with vigor by the enterprising management, aud it promises to develop into another profitable enterprise. T. C. M. Judge Paul May Retire- It is a matter of considerable gossip in Republican circles that Judge John Paul, of the United States Court for the western district of Virginia, may soon retire from the bench on account of his health. He has not been a well man for some time. It is said that iv case of his retirement District Attor ney Alderson will be a candidate for the position. Dedication of Auditorium.

B.—Mr. David Kunkle, an honored citizen of this placo, ' fell on sleep''last Lord's Day at-, 20 minutes to 12 o'clock, reaching this condition of rest from the weari ness of life through the infirmities of old age, he having attained the ad vanced age of 9? years last May. So far as known he was tbe oldest man in the county, certainly the oldest mason, and it is highly probable that he was the oldest member of this ancient or der in the State if not in the United States. He became a mason in Lewis burg in 1830. and at hii death was a member of the Stauuton lodge; 24 of whose members attended his funeral and buried him in a very impressive manner. At periods of his life Mr. Kunkle was prominently connected with the business interests of Augusta county, at one time having been engaged in the manufacture of iion under the old J charcoal process at Estalme furnace, j at other tinier merchandizing and | farming. He was an old ' forty-niner," having crossed the plains and gone up into the Black Hills iv quest of the much covet ed yellow metal, and many were the interesting Incidents of stiring adven ture that he could tell in connection with this experience. A portion of his lona life was spent is Missouri, where he met and married Miss Sallie Cooper, whose family had moved from Culpeper county, Va., to that State. Three children were born to them and two survive them, Dr. Kunkle,oC Puiaski,and Brown Kunkle, Esq , of this place, both young men of high character enjoying the respect of their fellows. The funeral was conducted Tuesday j evening from Bethany Presbyterian j church, of which deoeaeed was a mem ber. Rev. J. E. Ballou officiating, as sisted by Dr. McCorkle, of Clifton Forge, who was acting chaplain for the Masons in the absence of their members of this rank. The pall-bearers were: R. M. New comb, Bernard Vint, J. R. Hidy, Hom er Harruff, Jacob Goolsby aud Wm. Yuell. A large congregation of friends and kin were in attendance to show this last mark of love and respect, and four of his colored neighbors deserving to give some evidence of the regard in which he was held by that people, came and filled his grave after the Masonic service was over. And thus has one of Augusta's patriarchs gone to *be with his fathers. Basic City Personals. Mr. J. N. Funkhouser, -whohas been sick in Rockingham'county, has re turned home. He has had a long spell of sickness, but we hope he will soon be well again. Mr. W. 11. Page, who ha.- been con fined to his room for several days, is able to be on the streets again. Capt. T. C. Morton, of Staunton, was in town on business several days last week. Miss Walker, of Farmville, has ar rived and taken charge of the primary room in the public school.

Each child is urged to con tribute something towards raising the necessary amount of money. Sunday night the people of Basic City, had the pleasure of listening to Rev. Harry Smith, pastor of the Metho dist church in Waynf-sboro. Past Grand Chancellor, of Newport • News, addressed the Pythians and citi zens of Waynesboro and Basic City Tuesday night. His talk was upon the history and merits of the fraternity, and was at once interesting, inspiring and calculated to do good to those who | heard. One Wise Man and 99 Fools. Mr. P. T. Burkholder, of this coun ty, a close reader and careful thinker on the political issues of the day, says that the people have made a mistake in sending one hundred wise men to the constitutional convention. They should, he says, have sent only one wise man and 99 fools. Then there would have been less talking, fewer differences and more doing. He thinks too that a mistake has been made by our campaigners giving it out that no white man would be disfranchised. The word negro should never have been mentioned in the convention. The great majority of negroes can never be disfranchised by a law that will not exclude some ignorant, worth less whites, aud a property qualifica tion should be the chief feature of the new suffrage law of Virginia. Rev. John L. Clarke Dead. The Rev. John Leland Clarke, a prominent minister of the Methodist church, died Tuesday nightatlOo'cloek at the residence of his sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Tompkins, on Garrett street, Charlottesville, in the eighty-first' year of bis age.

"I took three bottles and now feel real well; my hearing Is good again; I oan breathe without difficulty; my throat fs no longer inflamed. I followed all the directions, and can now say that Dr. Hartman'a Peruna has oured me. * "I recommend it to all suffering-with catarrh. /am seventy-one years old, have an appetite again and can work. I feel ten years younger." When old age comes on, catarrhal dis eases come also. Systemic oatarrh la al most universal In old people.
