A very large percentage of the amities, who built pioneer homes n what is now known in the region om prised by Greenbrier, Hath, lighland and Pocahontas counties, nigrated from Rockbridge and Au ;usta counties, Va. Pocahonts people, however, have pecial reasons for being interested ii the families that come from the ieinity of the old Stone Church, or 8 miles north of Staunton, Va. lon. Jos. A. Waddell, of Staunton, n his address, made at the celebra ion of the 150th anniversary of f Augusta Stone Church, October Hs, 1899, mentioned many things atisfactorily illustrating the histo v of the family in question, as to heir reasons for leaving Ireland nd seeking homes in the Valley of lu. Mr Waddell, thinks that John jewis, who figures il the first of Scotch lrsb settlers. located in 1732 n Middle river(at first called Calli* al's riyer) a few miles east of the iresent crossing of the river by the allev turnpike. With MrLewi*,or erv soon afterwards, many persons f the same race came into the alley, fleeing from the province of Jlster. in ireland, to free themselv* rom the restrictions imposed by he established church. Morever, here is in doubt those people had tin their minds to find homes for hemseUen and their sons and milliters, where there would be nore room for enterprise along frith more ample facilities for ac uiring the means ot living. These people being Presbyterians nd firmly set in their ways,itcame bout that in Ireland, no one of heir persuasions was permitted to each except of the lowest grade; iot even were the ministers of their! hoice permitted to officiate at their iiarriage or oven to bury their ead And what was a greater rievanc.e sti'l with a great many io doubt, was the fact that they yere excluded from all public oflic s, civil and military. It appears, hat niter waifing for years hoping or better times, thousands of the nore energetic and self reliant of hese determined, masterful people, irepared to leave their natiye land, nd set out for the backwoods of america, as the great Virginia val ey then was, preferring the (lang? ra and privations thereof, to the ?ppressions of their native land, They landed on the banks of the talawan River in Pennsylvania, nt >r near New Castle Here they F ingered a while making sucji pre? dictions as they could for path hiding through the wilderness to Virginia, west of the Blue Ridge liountains. With astonishing ra lidity the backwoods was settled. \nd as the people had to come on 'oot, or horseback,they could bring jut Jittle with them, except imple nents of labor, and seed corn pro? cured in the Older settlements in i'ennsyl vania, Families located hemselves according to their own iweet will aud pleasure, not con :erned about land titles, and after reparing rude cabins, net to work n clearing and fanning patches !or ''raising something to live up >n."

It is believed that by this imo, Mr Lewis had moved from liddle river, to his final abode, two liles east of Staunton on the New lope road, and if so, here is where ho sermon was preached. The records show that ''Robert )ock and Daniel Dennison from ra, declared in the name of Shen ndoah, their adhesion to the call nrmerly presented to Mr Craig,and j hereupon he was set apart for the ork of the gospel ministry in'the uth part of Beverly Manor." lessrs Dock and Dennison had to lake a journey of 800 miles and ack, to perform their part in get? ing Mr Cr.iig as the pastor of the ioneer ancestors of so many Poca ontas and Greenbrier people.

Sold >y K H Trimble, The address delivered to theWest (Ta bankers at Elkins a few days ,go by Senator Elkins has aroused ittle comment throughout the ountry. His yiews went to the lepths of a problem which has nrown increasingly acute with the miassing of great wealth in a short imp. This paragraph furnishes a ext for considerable approval: In the march of time man's life lere is brief and in the sky of eter lity only as a flash of lightning, f the rich could only understand ?jhat they think they own is bor 'owed for a day, sometimes a short lay, that very soon others will con rol their ?weftttb, they would sure? ly be willing to pant with some of ?heir riches to help the helpless md build up the cause of human.* ;y. There is enough wealth now IO prevent poverty, but we 'nave lot learned to distribute it. We inderi ta nd the way's of accumul ;ion, but not of distribution* The spiritual side was given spec al attention by Mr Elkins. He ?eferred to a thought anent the essons to be learned from the oc? cultism of the east which had been i theme for previous reference from the senator. On this he said: In the past we had too much io do with ([material and too little with spiritual tilings. Tsere ire lessons yee to be learned from che Orient. To advance higher, as man will, he must become less ma ;erial and more spiritual, cultivate ;he soul. It is all that abides. ??What know we greater than She soul?" The strongest force in all the world is the soul. There is more in the world than mere money-getting, as the senator *ays. The man who gains money ind who knows how best to use it for bia own and the happiness of others has solyed the problem.

Bees and horticulture go so well to? other that many are adopting these wo avocations upon one and the samo xounds. It is a settled fact that wlth iut the insects^to fertilize the dowers ral little fruit can be produced, and without the flowers the bees would >rove a miserable failure. Bees and oultry seem to get along together lieely, the bees and young and old hicks drinking out of the sam* ishes. Ducks do not always evince he same good sense and often at empt to make a meal off the bees as hey emerge or attempt to enter the ive. This is generally sure and sud? on death to the clucks and it would ? better to keep them separate.

The tody of the barrel is composed of he two sets of veneer staves, one set eing arranged within the other. The uter staves, which are spaced apart lightly, have straight parallel ?dgcs, nd when the staves are bowed to orm the bilge of the barrel a taper rig intervening space is formed. The mter staves have vertical ventilating lots, or openings at the center, these lots being located between the mld lle hoops of the barrels. The Inner taves cover the intervening spaces etween the outer staves, making a tarrel of great strength. The inner taves are also spaced apart, the paces being located opposite to tho entilating openings of the outer taves. These spaces between Ute tuner staves are covered beyond the entilating openings, forming Inner 'crtical ducts, which communicate vith and extend upward and do'.vjj vard to permit air to pass into thol larrel, whereby the contents are thor mghly ventilated.

The necessity of purely-mated jueens for breeding cannot be too em? phatically urged. The so-called "hy jrlds," or mismated queens, produce r'oung queens of so much variability n every character that it is very un? wise to use them, says E. F. Phillips n the Journal of Agriculture. There s one phase of queen breedjng which vould doubtless prove useful, but vhich has not yet been tried to any ixtent. The first crosses of various ?aces have proven very useful; as,j dr example, the cross between Cy irians and Carniolans, but no breeder o the writer's knowledge has ever un lertaken to fix the type. That this rould be done seems very probable, ?easoning from what we know of irosses in other animals, and by care? ful selection of prolific queens whose workers showed all the characteris? es of the first cross, those crosses vould doubtless prove valuable as jreeders. Under no other circum itances. however, should mismated meens be used. Four Cardinal Feature.
