Historical Sketch.
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

hiding through the wilderness to
Virginia, west of the Blue Ridge
liountains. With astonishing ra
lidity the backwoods was settled.

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?

ral little fruit can be produced, and
without the flowers the bees would

Ventilated Barrel.
It ls well known -that the ordinary
?arrej is not adapted for the shtp
nent of perishable produce for long
listances. There being no means of
entilation the produce rots in a 6hort
ime and therefore becomes unlit ror

penings being so arranged that they
/ill not become clogged and closed
iy the contents of the barrel. 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

Necessity of Pure Stock.
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.
