LARG' TANNEKY TO LO?
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
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
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

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

Up-to-date Beds and Bedding.
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.

Any paiuter who knows his business will tell you that MASURY'S

cheaper paints, of course, but such paint3 are necessarily inferior, being

long: Some people say, "A gallou of paint is a gallon of paint.11 True!
But Masury's Paints cover 300 sq. ft. per. gallon?two good heavy

Not all high-priced paints are good. Many are badly adulterated
with benzine, which you can detect by its odor, or with water, which
our agents can tell you how to detect. Others contain chalk, whiting
or other worthless or harmful adulterants and cheapeners. Such paints
