II ighland Recorder. Terms, $1.00 a Year in Advance. Issued ween Fridav evening try H. 33. WOOD, SCITCH Ja,*W*D y-rjsrciBMi-E-w. Entered at the Monterey po st office tu second class matter. Monterey, Va., Friday, October 5 ltMX Mr ilcClung Explains The Sun Office, Baltimore, Sep. il Editor Highland Recorder, Monterey, Va. Dear Sir: There has come to my notice a letter written by a lady (presuma? bly) in reference to my description of a Highland reunion that ap? peared in a recent issue of a mag? azine and which you reproduced in your columns. It hurts me not a little to think that the piece should be so mis? judged as to give the impression that 1 spoke of Highland and Highland people in a sarcastic vein. Nothing was further from mj intention. The writer takes ex? ception to my description of thc country girl and her attire, think ing it was designed in an uncom plimentary mood. ' That such a girl in all her sim plicity is oftem more attractive and rightly so, than her stylishly dressed sister in the large towns I for one, have always maintained. I intended to give the descriptior a touch of humor, but sarcasm? never. Taste in dress, as every? one should know, is not a matter ol place. Many a country girl, whe never lit a gas jet or heard of t\u Subway, dresses more tastefully in her simplicity than many of th* thousands of elaboiately gowned painted and be-jeweled womat who throng the White Light dis trict of Broadway. For my part all things considered, I prefer the simplicity of the girl who lives ir the shade of a mountain peak tc the sophistication, worldly veneer style and extravagance of the maic who resides in the shade of a sky scraper, knowing and caring little for anything save the "shopping district," automobiles, seats 'for the matinee and refreshments in th< "Orange Room," "Palm Room,' "Oriental Room," etc. in a palatia hotel. None has higher admiration foi the girl of the 'rural districts of th< South" than myself,and I can't hell regretting that my remarks,intend ed only in a spirit of humor anc praise, should have made such ai erroneous impression. If I should try to deal sarcastical ly with any class of people sh ould never select those who re side in Highland. They are to< loyal, too intelligent, and too typi cally Southern to admit of any thing save commendation. Very truly yours, ' .

Trim bi's drug store. mcdowell linns,, McDowell, Oct. 2?Our equinox storm came Wednesday; it began to rain at noon and rained almost without ceasing until Thursday at noon, and it has thrown the farm? ers back again. I am pleased to see the Recorder urging the importance of good schools. Highland has long suffer? ed for the want of High Schools Mr. Patrick Maloy told me he sent bis boys off too soon and others have done the same?now with help from the state and the money we pay to send our boys and girls away we could establish and main tain a high school in each district; what we need is union of purpose and pocketbook. Let someone lead the movement in each district In other states vou do not see child? ren sent away like it is being done here.Last spring five schoolboys ?|M?nt thp night at one of the boarding houses of Staunton. Thai were returning from school and were to go on the different stages for their homee?judging from their luoks their ages were six, eight, twelve, sixteen and seven? teen. They sat up the whole night smoking and telling yarns. I could tell of some boys of promi? nent Highland families returning for the holiday season drinking on the train and when they reached Staunton "we must take in the town." It is best to keep our boys and girls under parental influence and control a3 long as possible, for we cannot tell whether they will have the strength to overcome the many temptations that come in the way. L**t us go to work and not be be? hind there state in the matter of good schools. Even the South Sea Islanders have high schools and compulsory school laws and every negro can read and write. Mrs Agnes Somers has planned to go to West Virginia to ipend the winter with her daughter, Mr?. Chas. McClintic,and next spring to go to California to spend the sum? mer with her son, Samuel. Mrs, Mary Anne Curry will moye to Bath this fall; her sous, Messrs. Joseph and John, are building her a house near them so as to care for her. A letter received by one of our citizens from Horton,W. Va., states that they have smallpox at Camp 4 on the Horton line and that hands are leaving. It would be well for our people to profit by our last summer's experience with this smallpox plague and beware how we come in contact with persons returning from these camps. Quite a number of people were in town Saturday, attending the meeting of the school baard and court. 'Squire Alfred Jones was sick and unable to attend court. Jus? tices Eagle and H of man held court. The casej*f W. P. B. Lockridge vs W. E. V. Ervine decided in fayor of defendent; the case of Robert Butti vs. John Rodgers, colored, decided in favor of defendant; sev? eral cases were put off, and- some thrown out of court. We would be pleased to see a let? ter each week in the Recorder from the beautiful and wealthy valley of Crabbottom. Surely some one will give us the news each week. It is time Wise should quit nurs? ing his grief and return to the ranks?if he will not, let's hear from some one else, Mrs H H Eryin, Mrs D H Roan and Mrs W T Alexander are still on the sick list. The Ladies aid society gave a free social to its members, Saturday afternoon, which was greatly en? joyed by the ladies.

Dr W R Siron was right sick last week, but is out this week. Mr J S MeNulty sprained his ankle last week and is housed up on account of it.

Oct i, 1906 La>t Saturday night, Sept. 29th, at the midnight hour the Reaper, Death, came to our village and gathered a well ripened sheaf, in the person of Mrs Victoria Jones. **Annt Victoria." as she was fa? miliarly know, had reached tbe ripe aga of 79 years and one month, lacking one day. She was stricken with paralysis several years ago, from wnich she partially recovered, but since last spring has been almost a helpless invalid, but never a murmur escap? ed her lips. She was always pa? tient and cheerful, and frequently talked of death as calmly as she would have talked of visiting friends. Her life was a benediction to all who knew her, aud she will be sad? ly missed. She was converted in early life and joined the Methodist church, and was always found in her place in the sanctuary until prevented by affliction. She was also a faithful member of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of this place. She was married at the age of 23 to Henry C Jones, who preceded her to the spirit world a number of years. Of thi* union there were ten children; eight of whom are living, and were present at her funeral. They are Mrs J K Gil bert, Mrs Jno J Hiner, Jno M., Thomas M., Marshall P., Jared L, li W and Mrs Richard Ralston. She was a loyal, devoted wife and moth? er, and was neve- happier than when associated with her children. Surely, they can "rise up and call her blessed." Her faith iu God was unwavering and as the end drew near her prospects for heaven grew brighter. Just the night be? fore she died, although her power of speech had been impaired by her affliction, she sang in a clear, sweet tone, ''This is the way. this is the wav I have to go, I have to go," and frequently said, **l want to go home." Funeral services were conducted1 today at the church at ll a. m. by her pastor, Rev H M Roaue, after which she was borne to the ceme? tery by six of ber nephews, and followed by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives. "Then in a nobler sweeter song, I'll sing thy power to save When this poor lisping, stammer? ing tongue Lies silent in the grave." Mrs Arthur Whitmore is yisiting her parents, Mr and Mrs Alfred Armstrong. Mrs Ernest Hansel and children arrived last week to spend a month with her father, Dr Jones. Mr Glen Ruckman is a guest at the hotel tonight. Mrs Rosa Hefner, and little daughter are visiting at the home of her parents, Mr and Mrs E R V Wilson.

Staunton, Va Fatally Shot By Constable Milboro Springs, Va.?While at? tempting to escape arrest .ino. Wu? rong was shot by Constable E. S. Porter, Saturday evening from which wound he died Sunday. While under the influence of liq? uor, John and Wm. Wilfong and Wm. Liptrap used some very offen? sive language on Pig Run for which warrants were issued by Justice Shepherd and turned over to E. S. Porter to make arrests. Hearing that they would attend a picnic at Indian Draft Saturday, he went there to make the arrests. Only two of the men came. Liptrap gave himself up at once, but Wil? fong refused to allow the officers to search him, and, breaking loose, jumped the fence and started on a run across the fields. Porter start? ed to run after him, calling him to halt, showing no inclination to stop, Porter fired one shot off to one side, but still Wilfong did not stop. It was then the fatal shot was fired, hitting him in the back just aboye the hips. The ball was fired from a 38 calibre, was found pressed against'the skin of his ab domen. He was taken to the home of G, W. Russisell and Dr. G. M. Nicfcell called, hut he was past medical aid, and died 24 hours later. Mr. Porter brought Liptrap on to Milboro and turned him over to Mr. Shepherd. He was released on bail to appear Wednesday. It was thought uunecessary to hold an investigation, but it being demanded by Mr. Porter, it will be held Wednesday. Later?lu the investigation of the killing of Wilfong by Porter, it was decided that in yiew of the fact that at the moment Porter fired, Wiifong's pistol fell and that on his deathbed he stated that if Por? ter had not shot him he would have shot Porter, he was justified in shooting and he was therefore ab? solved from any guilt. In the case of the other, he was fined $15, but informed by the jus? tice that his verdict would have been $50 and six months in jul bad it not been for the sad death of one of the party, and that he believed that they would take that as a salutary warning that they cannot bteak the law and escape retribution. Thus is a young man cut down in his prime and sorrow brought into the homes of all concerned by this unholy traffic in men's souls over tbe counter of the licensed sa? loon.?Hot Spriug Weekly Herald. Utter To Dr 0 J Campbell Monterey, Va. Dear Sir: We asked City Drug Co., Crvstal Springs, Miss., to sell Devoe. They wanted to know, of their own knowledge, how it com? pared with another paint they knew all about?it was sold right there aud considered good. They painted the house of W. B. McCluney two coats on purpose to test the two paints agaiiikt are another; oue coat Devoe 0 gallons; the other coat that other paint 10 Kal lons. Difference $20; $7 for puintj:-$ljB for labor. That other paint is made in New I Orleans* is pure; is considered an I excellent paint, add has a good deal of local good will. But the standard of paint has been low all through the south? west. That paint is thin, it is, you see, fl 10 of a paint. Devoe saves $20 over it on half a small job. It is a case of local best compar? ed with actual best. 15 Yours truly, , F. W. Devoe & Co.
