BISHOP The ball ;;ame between Crabbot tom and Monterey came off as sched uled last Saturday afternoon, played on the he .ie diamond.

An aged i : other and sister, Mor gan Stephen , of Knoxville, 111., and Mrs. JM. E. J.Indley, of Friend, Neb., r.spent Saturo. y night in Monterey en .jrouteito Kcci'Ietown in Rockingham.

They had made the trip from irinois in a Ford coupe, were both vigorous and jolly, and re sumed the 1. 3t lap of the journey with the ze: i of young people. The Staui ton fair is in progress this weelr, and, as usual, many High landers are attending. The daily passenger cars make it possible for many to talis in the show, going in the morning and returning at night. The famed and mysterious belled zuzzard has been at large in High this season, ; ccordig to the claims of a Crabbottons citizen who saw it, and in the Monterey valley two berry pickers claim to have routed it from a pcreh on a dry limb, hearing the bctl ?is it tee'e its flight. A train ci Ford cars, bound from Columbus, G::io, to Tennessee, spent Saturday ni^'.t in town.

The ma chines, strung out for a mile or more, their head-lights blinking and hob oing around the turns on the moun tain, created much mystery and curi osity as they came in sight of the < rabbottoia valley shortly before '?"id-night.

Mrs. Bruce Wine and two chilren, of Arkansas, are visiting Mrs Wine's mother, Mrs. J. N. Hull, and other relatives, in the Vanderpool commu nity. Mr. and Mrs. Wine, who form erly lived in the Valley of Virginia, are now operating a rice plantation of 200 acres near Lone Oak, Ark. Mrs. Wine gives some details of rice culture that are very interesting to Highlanders who are familiar only with blue grass and other indigenous crops. Their field of 200 acres is kept flooded to ,a depth of S or 8 inches by means of a well from which water is pumpted continuously. When the harvest time comes, the pumping stops, and the process of evaporation and absorption puts the field in shape for the reaper and binder, which must be drawn by several teams, wad ing nearlly knee-deep in mud and muck. It is cut, bound in sheaves and threshed pretty much as wheat. From their 1920 crop they hope to realize a yield of 50 to 60 bushels to the acre, and the out-look is for 15 cts per pound. Malaria and mosquitos are the bane of such sections, and for that reason many of these engaged in the cul ture are renters or tenants, one giv ing place to another as his health fails or the "keeters" sap him dry. n REAR FATAL ACCIDENT Dr A. S. Vaiden returned Wednes day evening frm Little Back Creek and reported that John Briscoe met with a right serious accident while hauling oats on his place. He was on the wagon pitching the oats off when the front of the load slipped off on the horses, Mr. Briscoe falling across the wagon tongue. The horses became frightened and turn ing at a sharp angle caught Mr. Briscoe in the wheels of the wagon, breaking his right leg above the knee also bruising his body badly. He was thought at one time by those present to be fatally hurt and in a dying condition, but subsequently rallied and was believed to be get ting along allright. FIRE ALARM A fire, of unknown origi'nj, broke out between ceiling and roof on the back porch of the old Commercial Hotel building Tuesday afternoon. The building ? that portion of it formerly used as hotel ? is now un occupied. It is owned by Messrs. Bishop and Jlicklin, but they have no idea as to the origin of tho blaze, and it will be charged up to mice and matches. Thanks to early discovery and the proximity of the reel and hose, the fire only gained small headway and the damage was negligible. The building is one of the largest frame structures in town. T?
