LAKE T f BE LOST
Empties on “Yon" Side of Flood—Rail
roads Torn Up—Supplies Difficult to
Be Had—Trade Feels Conditions.
Western Newspaper I'mon Near* Service ,i
Charleston. W. Va.—One of the
most important disturbances of
this section made by the high
water and the washing away of bridges
is the stagnation of the western ship
ments of coal. Should it take some
thing like thirty days to open tip the
lines, there will have been an enor
mous loss sustained by the roal com
panies and their men In this section,
as well as the trainmen. The lake
shipments open up about this time of
the year, and the conditions of the
roads are such now that thia field can
do little in that trade.
There are also a large number of
cars "yon" side of the flood, and these
empties will have to stay there until
they ean come over. It is expected
that a way to Cincinnati can he found
within a few days, but this will not
help the shippers In their lake trade.
It will, however, enable the merchants
and others who patronise the Queen
City wholesalers and supply bouses to
get their goods through.
A solid trainload of bridge timber
has been ordered from Florida by the
Norfolk & Western, and it Is under
stood that it is now on its way to the
flood district. The Norfolk A Western
is hauling all material to that section,
and numerous workmen of all trades
are already at work.
Opens Rich Mineral Field.
April 15, according to original pinna,
will mark the opening of the Cedar
Bluff cut-off railroad. What will be
the longest siding on ihe Clinch Val
ley railroad iR now being excavated
for at Tip Top, a projection several
hundred feet In length. The new ex
tension has already been strung with
telegraph and telephone wires, com
plete for service, and only a few minor
details preclude the active operation
of the line. A number of \ ery pro
ductive coal operations will be de
veloped on this road, materially aug
menting the Norfolk & Western traffic.
Graham and Cedar Bluff will be the ex
tension’s terminals, which will he an
Impetus to the growth of these places.
The greatest traffic over this road will
be for the western points via laeger
and Berwind to the Norton outlet. The
Cedar Bluff line is anticipated by the
Nor^ylk & Western to have one of the
most opulent fields for mineral devel
opment among the several Interests
recently acquired by this company.
Unfair Prices Dealt With.
News from the flood zone is to the
effect that the government has ar
rested a large number of men who
have been charging exorbitant prices
for ferriage. In some instances It is
reported that families marooned on
the roofs of their houses were left
theTe at the mercy of fhe flood be
ranse they could not pay enormous
sums to the boatmen to take them ,
off. When this condition became
known the government officials began
arresting them, and a number are now
In jafl. It is reported from Ports
mouth that, -one man who refused to
take off a family unless they gave him
twenty-tlve dollars apiece, waR knock- j
ed ont. of a boat and floated down, the
rescuers taking the boat and ruing It
to reaeue people.
Baseball Tans Pleased.
Fans Of Charleston are delighted
with the admission of Lexington and
Maysville, two Kentucky cities, to the
Ohio &tate league. The popular sug
gestion that the name of the league
ought to be changed so as to give
recognition to West Virginia cities, be- |
comes more than -ever pertinent. The
name "Ohio State league,” and it m
an honored one, now becomes a Mis
nomer. The league is no longer con
fined to Ohio cities-- half of the mem
bers are from West Virginia and Ken- ,
tucky—and although the Ohioans nat
urally cling to the original title as a
matter of aeutimrnf.

States Bureau of the Cen
mentation at the Conferring of
ness Men, to be held at Richmond.
April IK and IS. According to Dt. _
bert I*. Bourlaud, executive secret*
i»f the conference, discussion of th
South’s agricultural status Is to have
:i prominent place In the proceedings\
because the prosperity of business.'
('specially, is bound up with the pros
perity of agriculture In the South,
where the great majority of the popu
lation are farmers.
Dr. Coulter's presentation takes the
form of statistical tables, showing the
number of farmers interested in the
various Southern crops, along with the
extent to which they are interested.
The tables also show the total amount
and value of each crop produced in
each Southern state, and the same fig
ures will be given for the country as a
With these tables as a basis, tho
business men attending the conference
will b*» able to make an estimate of
the greater yields which the nverage
Southern farmer might produce with
little or uo extra coat. In this way,
commercial bodies can determine spe
cifically what to undertake for the de
velopment of the agricultural re
sources around their respective cities.
That it is utmost ruinously had busi
ness for the Southern farmer to plant
corn and cotton so largely us he does
at present is one of the main facts so
far developed by Dr. Coulter’s study.
One of the ways in which he proves
this contention is by an analysis of the
buy and forage crops. Throughout the
entire United States the value of these
crops now amounts to more than $824,.
000,000, while in the fifteen Southern
states it is less than $9,000,000. As s
result, the Southern fnrmers have to
buy nearly $60,000,000 worth of feed a
year, or almost seven times as much
as they raise.
If the agriculturists of the South
raised enough feed on their farms to
take care of their own stock, I>r. Coul
ter figures that they would save $30.
000,000 a year, thus increasing their
purchasing power to a like extent with
out the expenditure of a single addi
tional penny in the operation.

jroiY DAY OF REST
Sabbath Wisely Set Aside for the
Worship of God and the
Needs of Humanity.
It is worth while to allude often to
ITof. Curl Hilty’s delightful book on
•'Happiness.'* and especially to Its
glorification of work.
One of Professor Hilly’s strong
points is that no ono has a real right
to the rest of Suuday unless he has
toiled during the preceding six days.
Tho keeping of the Sabbath among
the ancient Jews was counted a car
dinal virtue. It extended eveu to their
plants, which could uot be watered or
plucked on that day. Of course, the
ceremonies of the priests, ns of those
of all sects lu our own day. were uot
accounted as labor.
We can only fully rvulice the inten
sity of the old Jewish feeling for (he
day when we consider the fact that a
deliberate breach of the Sabbath was
punishable by death.
That the national feeling on this
subject approached fanaticism is seen
by the record that a Jewish steersman,
during a terrible storm, left the helm
untended, because the hour hud struct,
for the beginning of the Sabbath, it
is well uttested by passage, from the
books of the Maccabees, from Jose
phus and from Plutarch, thut the Jew
ish armies refused to bear armi on the
Sabbath, even suffering their enemies
to cut them down rather than to dese
crate tho day.
Sabbath Rigors Mitigated.
"Prudent commanders, however,"
•ays Doctor Strong. “Boeing the great
advantage thus given the enemy, ob
served the Sabbath rest only so tur as
to abstain oil that day from offensive
The Pharisees, hlssenes and Samar
ttans w’ere. In the time of Chris!. the
chief sticklers for the old rigor. They
split the very smallest of hairs in their
seal. Thus It was permitted among
them to give medicine to save life; but
to give it merely to make the •tek
more comfortable was forbidden.
Recent discoveries, us related b>
Delltzsch and others. Indicate that a
seventh day of rest was prescribed
among many, perhaps most, of the an
cient nations, and markedly among
the Hittltes and Babylonians. It seems
to have been early felt that the repose
of the night did not suffice for the re
freshment of tho humun system, and
that in addition a whole day of rust
was needed us often us once in each
The Jew keeps the Snbhath us a fes
tival. After a brief, ceremonious reli
gious service of some kind during the
morning, feasting and pleasure are the
order of the day. The Jews consider
that Isa. 18:13, 14 enjoins this in say
ing, "If thou turn away thy foot from
doing thy pleasure on my holy day,
and call the Sabhutb a delight, the
holy of the lxtrd, honorable, then shall
thou delight thyself in the lxtrd, and 1
will cuubo thee to ride upon the high
places of the earth."
Make Sabbath Day of Feasting.
Buxdorf, one of tho great authori
ties, hb>h: "Bo convinced are the Jews
that ono way of honoring the Sabbath
is by feasting that they sometimes
fast the preceding day to enable them
to eat the more at the Sabbath meals.”
Our modern evangelical methods
are very different. We consider this
day as sacred to the higher spiritual
needs of mankind. We deplore any*,
thing which tends to make it carnal
As for the special deeds to be done
or left undone on the Hulibuth, men
are more and more leaving them to
the individual conscience; but let
each of <im remember that, according
to the way the great rest day is spent,
