THE NEWS FROM CRIMORA.
Imorevements to Mine Property—A Suc
cessful Commission Business— Large
Shipments of Flour—Floe wheat
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

owning to the removal from the neigh
borhood of Mr. L. B. Cocheuour, the
obliging mail carrier ol R. W. D. No. 1
updating .from this place.
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*
