CATE AT DI ?^TN Will Prove Source or kc venue For Highland People. The U S Tannery people have definitely decided ty locate a large, steam tannery on the property of 1. M Arbogast near Durbin, they having already secured the rite from Mr Arbogast, which is one mile beyond Travelers Impose, and are contracting for large quantities of bark. The location of the large tannery at this point makes it a sure thing that the Greenbrier railroad will be extended on np to the neighborhood of Travelers Hep >se. In fact, we have it from good authority, that negotiations are now in progress with the view of extending the road to Travelers Repose and locat? ing a depot on Mr Arbogast's lands at the old Greenbrier river bridge. Should the road be extended to this point, which would bring it three and one half miles nearer to Highland, it would at once secure for the road the handling of a large amount of freight for High lauri and a portion of Pendleton county, lt is a noticable fact that already immense quantities of freight are being received into Highland by way of the Greenbrier road, and the move is just in its infancv, but that it would greatly increase with the shipping point at Travelers He pose, there can be no shadow of doubt. The extension of the road to Travelers Repose would certainly be a convenience to Highland peo? ple and will secure for it a greatly increased patronage from this sec? tion of the country. The location of the tannery at the point mentioned will, we be? lieve, prove a source of revenue for our people, Chestnut oak bark U being contracted for there at $7,0(1 per cord, and from a large section of the county, since teams, unload? ed, will be going there for freight, bark could be taken over at such a slight inconvenience, that at least $4.00 or $4.50 could be realized, on each cord, and thus could a very reasonable profit, come from a heretofore unmarketable product, and a product too which the county possesses in an almost unlimited quantity. It is reasonable, we believe, to presume on no small revenue for Highland from the Durbin tannery, firs. Catharin Varner Dead. On Monday night Mrs Catharin Varner, wife of Ben j. Varner, dieri at her home near Higlitown, aged about 48 years. Mrs Varner had been an invalid for several vears, and for two or three years was almost helpless. She withstood with patience her great and prolonged suffering, never murmuring at her lot nor questioning the wisdom of her af? fliction. Mrs Varner was a faithful mem? ber of the M E church, although of late years, on account of her af? fliction, she was deprived of many church privileges. To mourn their loss she leaves a husband and six children and one sister, Mre Emanuel Propst. On The Bullpasture, New Salem, Aug. 18, 1902.?The dry weather continues. Corn is in? jured beyond recovery and the meadows ars brown and sear. J. L. Shumate attended the Horse Show in Harrisonburg last week and disposed of a horse. E A Hicklin and daughter, Miss Lola, returned Friday, from a visit to friends in Staunton. Jenkins & Shumate's saw-mill has suspended operation owing to the scarcity of water. J S Hicklin is painting his house which adds very much to its ap? pearance. The 'phone line has been com? pleted up to the new road and we soon hope to be in touch with the outside world.

The young folks of this vicinity ! enjoyed a social given by Mr and I Mrs \V T Hamilton Friday even iii)". Toddie, Better Road to Durbin. The following is by a correspon? dent from Dunmore to the Poca? hontas Times: "Pocahontas County should work the road from Durbin to the Va. line.and also from Boyer to Top Alleghany. A few years ago we hauled our goods from Staun? ton, and Highland County kept her roads up good. Now hauling comes the other way, and the roads have not been worked from Dur? bin to the Virginia line for three or four years." The trouble with getting yerv much work done on the S. & P. road in W. Va. is that the seat of power from whence come the road working orders for Pocahontas county, is located too far south ami would not be a good card for. that locality to play, since Durbin prom? ises to.be a right warm rival ol Marlinton. From Eastern Highland Waycross, Aug. ll, 1902.?Hay making is on at present. Mr. J. C. Doyle who has been visiting his family here, will return to Coatesville, Pa. next week where he is engaged in an iron factory.

The selection of beds and tbe de? tail of their equipment, says The Delineator for September, is one of the most important items of modern house furnishing. The provision for comfort in sleeping rooms would perhaps receive more attention if one realized that fully one-third of a life time is spent there. In the course of three-score years fully twenty, even with only moderate sleeping, are passed in bed. While iron bedsteads are so senerallv used that they may be found even in the tenement districts, where their neat, durable and sim? ple construction means even more than in the homes of more preten? sion and wealth. While the adorn? ment of the bed is of moment, the foundations of comfort depend on the choice of mattresses and springs. Here the quality should be of the best that can be afforded. A first expense in good materials is likely to be the last. To My Friends. It is with joy I tell you what Kodol did for me. I was troubled with my stomach for several months. Upon being adyised to use Kodol, I did so, and words can? not tell the good it has done me. A neighbor had dyspepsia so that he had tried most everything. I I told him to use Kodol. Words of gratitude haye como to me from him because I recommended it.? Geo. W. Fry, Viola, Iowa. Health and strength, of mind and body, depend on the stomach, and nor? mal activity of the digestive or? gans.
