It was indeed a busy J place and contained a large gen eral store two saloons and a I blacksmith snop. coal was ! shipped from there by the train I loads and it was a hustling busy i little place. It was a great po litical center during the eam- jpaignsand the candidate who had the vote of this precinct to his credit was generally the win ner as the 'Slope' as it was fa- jiniliarly called, polled a big vote and they all stood together. But the mines became exhausted and the little village which wield ed so nlueh influence in county affairs was doomed to be a de serted village. The Shobe broth ers left and the town gradually grew smaller and smaller and the postoffiee was discontinued and then the busy little village com menced gradually to fade from the map and like many other places of its kind quietly passed out of existence. Today the town is entirely obliterated, and not a thing stands on the site to mark the memory of that once busy place. It lives only in history and has passed into oblivion. JOHNNIE.
