Imorevements to Mine Property—A Suc cessful Commission Business— Large Shipments of Flour—Floe wheat Prospects—Personal, Etc Crimora, Va , April 11th, 1900. A visit to this section of Augusta county, at all times interesting, is the more pleasing at this season of the year when nature is putting on her mantle of spring life. Those who are favored with a trip of inspection to tbe Mau garese mine* tell of it* interesting sights and its novel method of mining, a process tbat ha* to be witnessed to be duly appreciated. The work is known as tbe Crimora Manganese Mines and are now completing valua ble improvements that will enable the company to do a greatly increased business. The drainage tunnel that has beeu building forabout three years is finished and will be valuable not only to this mine but to the Old Dominion —that adjoins. Another expensive improvement is the great water dam that required 2, car-loads of cement for tbe grouting alone. Besides this a dam of great strength is to be put across an adjacent mouutsin ravine and later a large settling pond. All this means inueh for the successful and profitable operation of tbe mine. To the uorth of this mine ie the prop" erty of the Augusta Manganese Co., where tbe openings have brought to light some very fine ore. Not long since a Mr. Sparke was here going over the property and prospecting in the iulerests of Pittsburg parties. In this connection it is as well to say that the Old Dominion Co. is expected soon to develop its property. Its rights are owned by Mr. C. H. Harmau, of New York, Messrs. Massie, of Char lottesville, Patterson of Richmond, aud others. Since warmer days are at band tbe Sunday School for the summer has re opened iv the Methodist church, Mr. W. R. Talley.superinteudent.

As rural carrier he is succeeded by Mr. E. R. Kennedy, who with his fam ily have long beeu residents of this place. The route though a long and difficult one has been well maintained and an excellent service giveu by both! Mr. Gochenour aud his successor. Messrs Harman and De Rundoau have been shipping lately quite a good deal of flour from the Crimora Roller Mills, most of which finds its market in this State and tbe Carolinas. Tbe popular brands are Acme, Eureka and White Lilly—loo barrels per day being the mills capacity. A business inCrimorathatbasgrown to proportions of usef illness and profit is the commission house of Plains A Koiner. It has in the past 12 months, furnished the manganese mines with 2.400 tons of coal, besides what is sup plied to local consumers at the village here; it baa bandied 000 tons feed, 200 barrels flour, 2 car loads of woven wire fence, about 200 car loads of bay aud straw and about 600,000 chestnut , shingles. This last (the sbingleß) ha* become a big proposition, some year* since our people used uo shingles, but ■ covered with tin and other roofing Now they prefer the|sbingles. which io chestnut, are.practically iudestruo table, lasting it is said many years longer tbau other popular roofing ma terial. This firm is owner of a tract of timber laud across the mountain from which they expect to cut a million feet iv oak, poplar, chestnut and other woods, that will find market in Balti more. Theii light hand own iv tbe heavy hauling necessary to reach tlie railway at this point is Mr. Joseph F. Wood, a teamster of skill and experi ence. Mr. Wood has himielf brought over the mountain siuce last summer more than a half unlliou uiinufactured shingles. Our people are pleased with the ap pointment of Rev. U. D.

Yet some of the cheapest made powders are sold to consumers at the highest price. Housekeepers should stop and think.
