They're All Wrong. Tho average East Virginian still has tint idea that the t> pi eal Southwest Virginian in u linlil, bad guy, long on the use of inoon8lliliu liquor ami quick bii thn trigger?a murderous in? habitant with bushy eye lushes, b ton in shovel jaws, n regulu. battle axe beat and a frightful snarl, who fours neither Edgar Allen Pue's itngels in heaven above nor bis demons down un? der the sen. The early native hillsmtlll was pretty much that kind of guy. His tierce antagonism to modern ways was due largely to the inroads mode upon the domain by unscrupulous Hast ein capitalist and title '*prov ing laud grabbers, Hut the hill billy has reared children who have taken to education like our early fathers took to wives they bought with homegrown tobacco. And when u hopeful sou goes down to Richmond town to take a special course in something, he is conti onto.) by remarks such as "Oh, are you froill Southwest Virginia!- My goodness, you're kidding intl Voll don't look wild at all!" A sudden IIIOVI moui II la despera? do, and there would follow a stuuipede. Of course, we still have our moonshiners, our "bad men" and a lew oilier hangovers from an earlier day. Put they don't make up the enure population by any manner of means. Wo have men out here of slate and national influence and reputa? tions, who think this country the grandest thusuu lingers on. Out from Southwest Virginia have gone governors, prom men t educators, preachers, doctors of medicine, noted lawyers, en? gineers and a few writers of irrowing roputatio is. The wifo of a president once played in the bills of this section. Of course AI Jennings was born here, but he got his training in other mates. Visitors to this section are suiprised at the evidences of l*t t'g res si Veil ess, civic pride and actual civilization noticeable on every hand. With craned necks they look about town for a "bail man" much as one looks about a Western city for an In? dian with a tomahawk and n long gear of feathers. The fact is that there is just t?H much crime and general law lessees* in the cities and other pluCC8 that bo ist of law and or? der us there is in this section, but they don't have a llutioniz ed history of feeds to give n a beusalioilal value. All this parlor talk about Southwest Virginians being a lawless, uncivilized lot should be laughed at, j-ist as mm) other statements made by tue uninformed and ignorant are given tho merry ha haw.?

SI-BO .75 .40 Demonstration Work This date mokes possible a partial report on tlio work with soy Iiimos and in detasRcling corn. For tho soys, tho onus ually slow growing weather of the past summer failed lo ma? ture beans sown after May 25. Some that were planted .lime 1 und 'J bad so far developed that they would probnhly have ripened tinder ordinary growing conditions, In nearly every in? stance they made satisfactory growth, where rabbits did not, destroy them, they also showed a better growth and more feed value on poor land than corn with similar conditions. A patch ut the county farm gives evidence of this. Tlie men v bo has a few stacks Of nicely cured soys now to feed '.?i-, milk cows can laugh til short pasture conditions ami have plenty of milk and butter right along. Lee (iiliiam in the Mirchlield section can tell j on about his soys. The detUSSOlillg was not done very generally nor strictly ac? cording to directions. The re? sults therefore are suggestive, rather than satisfactory. In euch instance where 1 have liny report the results are such as to encourage a more systematic trial next yeur, I ruf? r inquiries to VYilburn Sparks, Tacotnn; K. J. Sexton, Cocburn; Loo Oil liam, \V ise 1 repeat tt former statement that I believe when this princi? ple is well understood the prac? tice of doltlHsuling half the stalks, especially I be weak ones, will be hh much u part of up lo date corn culture us work? ing it. The dominant spraying pe riod is drawing near. Last year there was much trouble in get? ting material and many trees wen- noi sprayed. The murket will have less ami less need for tinsprnyed fruit. Let me urge every one to order the lime, sulphur and Milestone (zinOSUl plliltu) und arseuate of lead now, make t'ip the solution yourselves, thus saving many dollars of cost and have the material when you want it. Yon can buy ihe powdered leinl arseuate in quantities at 35 cents a pound, sulphur at 3 cents, blile stone at 24 cents and lime, well when our Wise county plant gets into full op oration you can buy lime at tt reasonable liguru, ask Simpson ami Crawford at Itig Stone (Lip about il. You may get it now for ubout I I 2 cents a pound. tin the basis of these figures, the material to make SO gallons of lime sulphur spray will cost ;o and freight on the sulphur. 500 gallons would mean a sav? ing of pretty nearly enough to pay for putting il on. 1 shall ho glad to furnish de? tailed information about the process of making to any one who desires it. Some persons have reported that tho pyrox failed to give entire satisfaction the past year. Make your own bordeaux to use instead and the cost will bo less. Tho material l -r .'in gallons of bordeaux in? cluding on.- pound of lead arse nalo tvoulvi be $1.03. Compure these figures with the costs of .luorcial lime sulphur and pvrbx then decide what you will do. I wish to correct an error in last week's notes. Tho First National Rank of Norton do? nated $'15 00 instead of only ?5.00; Stouega Coke and Coal Company $25.00 instead of ?20.00. The special features of our Richmond fair exhibit cost f<'.7.iv instead of "more than $5.U0." W. S. UoSS, County Agent, Wise, Virginia! Where lo Worship Sunday. i'RKRBYTKKIAN OIIUKCII: Krv.

Not only will the Rad ford Nor? mal take advantage of the home nursing course offered by the State Department of Health, but two ancillary institutions will also bo able, through the interest of the normal school, to offer this instruction to their pupils.
