Considerable curiosity bas been
aroused in the downtown streets of
Charleston by the appearance of a religious
sect known as the Israelites.
The garb of these people Is such that
they Instantly attract attention wherever
they appear. It consists ol canvas

patterned after the styles worn In the
days when the Israelites were passing

shoes are worn except when absolutely
necessary. They are migratory birds,

The work of scouring the huge reservoir
at Wheeling was begun last Sunday
under the supervision of Superintendent
Scroggins of the city water
works. About sixty-fire or seventy
men were employed in the task and the
services of two of the city's fire engines
were required to pump water to
wash the mud, which was about five
feet thick, from the bottom of the res|
ervoir. The reservoir is divided into
two sections and only on% of these was
cleaned In order that the water supply
for the city should not be shut off. The
other section will be cleaned next
West Virginia has the honor of being
the first state to attempt to stim
ulate public interest in the war and
our share in the prosecution of it
through a dramatic presentation or
pageant. A war pageant called "The
Drawing of the Sword" has been
brought to this state by the State Council
of Defense and will be shown in
a number of the leading cities of the
state, including Wheeling, Huntington,
Parkersburg, Charleston and
Clarksburg. The pageant is said to
be a very vivid presentation of a thrilling
motiff and is expected to do much
towards increasing the recruiting
throughout the state. The State Council
of Defense is not commercially interested
in the affair, except to the extent
that it has guaranteed expenses,
and everything over expenses will go
to the Red Cross or some other worthy
Reports made to the state compensation
commission for the past week
show another week of heavy fatalities
and accidents I nthe industries of the
state. Up to noon last Saturday five
hundred and seventy-five accidents and
fifteen fatalities had been reported,
most of them in the mines. The weli
fare and safety-first departments ot
the various industries are increasing
their efforts in behalf of the employes
and it is hoped soon to greatly decrease
the number of accidents. The
unusually large and steadily growing
lists are tliougth to be due to the fact
that industries are laboring under a
greatly increased demand for products
and in their efforts to meet these demands
are becoming hasty and forgetting
that not only safety first but
safety always is one goal towards
which they should strive.
A movement to affect the removal of
the Morris Harvey College to Charleston
was inaugurated at the banquet
held recently at the Ruffner hotel in
Charleston in honor of Bishop James
H. McCoy, of Birmingham. Senator
William E. Chilton acted as toastmaster
and furnished encouragement for
Charleston backers of the movement
by advocating the change.
west Virginia s great xruit crop nas
begun to move and from now on the
flow of luscious fruit will be steady.
The first car load of apples, "Yellow
Transparents." was recently shipped
out of Berkeley county and sold for
$5.25 a barrel net at shipping stations.
Shipments of peaches were expected
to begin this week and great quantities
of this fruit have already been contracted
for. The entire crop ot early
i apples, the "Dutchess," of the Ridge|
way Orchard company, has been sold
to a Pittsburgh concern at five dollars
a barrel and the company has a force
of twenty men in the orchards picking
the fruit and preparing it for shipment.
Relic of General Wolfe.
A new and valued addition has just
been made to the museum of the
Chateau de Hamezay. It consists of

garnet silk sash worn by Gen. James
Wolfe on the day he became the "victor
of Quebec" In 1759. In addition
to the sash are the original letters
that prove unmistakably the aothen*
