A few miles east of Orange Court

a spring- called from tho oarly sottlo
mont of tho country Tho Q urn Spring-
In colonla1 times and Jong after tVo
revolution It was a famous rendezvous
for barbecues ono of tho few words wo

diana flsh frya shooting matches and
soqlal urtd pal itioal gatherings A pub
Ho road led by it and was called tho

Mr Stndison was a candidate for tho
Virginia convention which was callod
for the purpose of adopting or reject
ing the United States constitution
Tho opposition to adoption was Tory
groat In Virginia not only among tho
educated classes but among tho Bap
tists who had mado since 1770 rapid
progress And wero beginning to bo
numerous Aoion other objections it
vna arffupd that at tho very becrinninir
OT
would navo a majority in the sonato
and ten majority Jn tho houso and
that ft tnvift without any constitutional
limit Ctoiiltl bo carried by u mere ma
jority and tho north whoso predom
inant Interests wero manufacturing
could impose on tho agricultural
south such rate of tariff as was
suited to promote their inter
ests Tho majority of southern
members in the United States conven
tion stronously contonded that a
two thirds vote should bo required to
pass any tariff bill Mr Madison in
His great anxiety to havo aconStltu
tlon formed which was satisfoctory to
tho north voted wiYh the northern
mombent to rcqulrq oply tv majority to
rogulato tariff measures arguing that
there was no clanger to tho south for
tho western agricultural states would
soon bo entering the union with in
terests identical with those of tho
south
Joctlon wero removed and lie agreed to
support Mr Madison and to get his
people to vote for him also Mr
Madison was elected by n good major-
ity and tho great crisis wn3soon
passed
Mr Leland returned to Connecticut i
to end his days after n life of ardous
labor tho old oak tree is tho only
material monument bearing his name
Few spots in the union have such his-
torio interest for here is ono of the 1

THE ISLAND OF CURACOA
A Queer llace tho Natives of Which Have
Odd Cuatoms
Curacoa is ono of tho queerest little
islands of tho Caribbean sea It lies
sixty miles north of Venezuela is about
sixty miles long nnd twolvo or four
teen miles wide and it has a popula
tion of moro than fifty thousand
Thero hno means of procuring fresh
water on tho island except by saving
rain water in reservoirs A number of
wells have been bored under tho super
vision of tho Dutch government to
which it belongs but each ended in
failure
A curious statement regarding these
borings is mado by tho inhabitants of
tho Island They say that In each and
ovory case after it certain depth was
reached the tools dropped out of sight
indicating that thero was no solid
foundation to the island Tho borings
were made in low places and through
hills and in almost thirty different
places each with tho same ultimato
result A fow wells havo been dug to
a lessor depth and brackish unpleasant
water is obtained from therri fit only
for manufacturing purposes
Tho approach of tho rainy season is
always an Interesting timo there Tho
water in tho reservoir Is low at this
time and tho natives eagerly await tho
opportunity to gather a fresh supply
Clothing is noVpr washed therq in
fresh water but at till hours of tho
day the beach Is allvo with women
beating the clothes with club on the
rocks
Tho houses aro all built in tho Dutch
stylo and arc mostly of stone with tile
roofs Tho streets are very narrow in
somo places so narrow that it is possi
ble to shuko hands with the occupant
of a room across tho strcot simply by
leaning out tho window
Thero is a scarcity of young womon
in tho island but an over plenty of old
and wrinklod dames It is said the
