I III WutllTM ,n 1J Koni ur* ) Only about three years hence, according to present estimates, the Panama Tonal will be opon to inter oceanie shipping. If not lit once, it will sooner or later shift the movement of ocean traftlc between the Western world and Asia, and at tbe same time a lure;., part of the inland commerce of the United States will change from land to water routes. Every Southern man behoves it will immediately stimulate Southern trade and industry, ami tbe people ol every South Atlantic port bfl Ii. \ e t heirs is to be the focal point of it all. What Arc llirv lining to he in ReadlncM? That is a pertinent question] MIGHT NOW for iliem all, but at Ibis linn- I will consider only j the ports of the Carolinas and j (ieotgia. 1 do so beuause ii is apparent'thatthe'flrsl big NEW business created for tho South by the opening of the Canal j will be that of furnishing fuel coril to steam using vessels both j homeward ami outbound be tween Etiropp and Asia, as well as lo the shipping in our own coast wise commerce. This fuel, because of quality, proximity and railway transportation will come chiefly from Southwest Virginia and Kastern Ken? tucky. The bulk of tidewater coal from West Virginia will continue to go to (be Virginia Gapes?Norfolk and Newport News, as now. I.et us first consider the im? portance of this coal handling business that awaits tbe Can. linn and Georgia ports upon the opening of tho Canal. South? west Virginia alone contains twenty live billion tonn of coal, and its thirty odd mining com? panies could now (.end three million tons a year into Wil? mington, Charleston and Sn vannah. 1 Inly one of thorn, the Stohoga Coke & Goal Co . can ship them a million tons a year. The latter amount loaded into 40-foot 10-ton cars would make up a train '.'7 miles long Using this as a basis, you can quickly calculate that if this one com? pany sent all of its one billion tons, now unminod, to South Atlantic ports, a train of 177.003 miles long would be required to haul it; and if only ton of Southwest Virginia's twenty. five billion toils of coal goes, in tho years to come, to these ports, it will represent a train over a million and three quart? ers miles long, or sixty times the distance of the moon from the earth. It would seem that those ports which may ex? pect such a tonnage hs this should be getting ready for it. Good roads are winning a permanent place in popularity with the farmers, and no com? munity is considered progres? sive that bus not improved its public highways. Mr. McConncll Well Pleased. NKW Y..uk. Nov. II. IBM. Friend Mr. Knight: Bofore I lofl Appalaohia 1 promised t<> Bend von n change of nd. for this week's issue of your paper. This I fully intend? ed to do, but was so busy it seemed 1 could not get the time tO do so. The use of space in your paper has helped us very materially in gotting pur mer? chandise before the people, and while I have always had faith that our policy of selling for ca-h. giving better values atei eliminating trash entirely would in tin' end get us a line of customers of which we could well atford to he proud, the in? crease in our business has ex? ceeded our expectations for the time we have been in business in Appalachia. It is now nothing out of the ordinary for a customer to vol? untarily tell us that all the ?joods ever bought from us have been very satisfactory and that they expect to continue a regu? lar customer. Such compliments encourage us very much, and as buyer for this store I expect to continue to crowd every outlCU of value i possible in the goods sold ovei ! our counter. Many lines of merchandise on which we now have exclusive sale are now recognized as standards of value, urn! some of our customers tell us that the comparison "as good us Ford ,V Mel'onnell's; rift good as 'Wool toy,' etc., etc.," is very often heard in other stores. My business in New York now is to buy a line of Holiday goods, and if there is any place where the pretty, useful and artistic holiday goods which tempt the gift giving spirit are to be found it is in "Little *'Id New York," and at this time are to bo found many unusual values. 1 am so enthusiastic in search? ing for and buying the pretty things that I hardly take Mine foi meals, and although we ex pect a iniich larger holiday business than ever before, I'll venture tho assertion that our customers won't he disappoint? ed when they come to s;s for .mitable gifts for their friends. Wishing you much success, 1 remain, Mgr. Appa. store. Mr. W. 1?. Roberts, the founder of the "Hack Home" Movement in the South, about which so much has appeared in the papers throughout the coun? try during the past twelve months, is in Wise county now arranging to get out the tirsl edition of his "Back Home" Magazine. It is Mr. Roberts intention to issue a magazine that will compute favorably with any publication of the kind ever gotten out, and he should be given the hearty sup? port of every business man in the county. The Wise county edition being the first, will nat? urally attract unusual atten? tion. This edition, when pub? lished, will be turned over to the people of the county for dis? tribution, and will be a great advertisement for this county, which is one of the richest in natural resources in the South. To Tint ClTitKsi or Ilm Stoni Q m?i I can not refrain from mnk ing a public expression of my gratitude to you for your mag niflconl vote of confidence in trie at the election just past I knew you were and hud hereto fon- been partial to inc. hut af? ter the bitter, and in some in instances, extremely unfair tight made on me, you exceeded my strongest hopes. 1 again pledge you my best eft ort to earn your non-partisan endorse? ment so graciously given.

Wohl ford, was horn in Mechanicshurg, l'.lnnd county, in the year 18150; He had resided in this county for over 111 years, and is a truly self made business gentleman.

Ho is competent, qualified, obliging and readj at all times to all who have busi ness with him; being also n friend of good government, a friend of tbe laboring man. having been one, and will make a treasurer that both parties' will be proud to honor. He was the people's choice, hence his election.?(iooburn Journal; Messrs. A. 11. Heeder, G. L. Nash, t >tis Motiser, J. I\ Bui litt and It. 1'.
