PAGE 22 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MAY, 1986 Continued from page 20. Al] three stores rely on local as well as tourist trade, especially during the off-season. Both the Morgans and Cooper said they began rebuilding their businesses by providing services residents had been having to do without locally. In Cooper's case, it was reviving the post office that did the trick; Morgan says just making sure there is always gas in the pumps has made a difference . "The local people had quit coming, even before the store was closed by its last owners because the stock was so low," Morgan said. "But we're rebuilding the local people's confidence that we'll have animal feed and milk and bread. We feel we're on the right track blending local and tourist traffic." Mast Store has already outgrown its floorspace, and has opened an annex in another old general store just down the road. Last fall Mast expanded in yet another direction, when Cooper published the store's first catalog and established it as a mail ...

MAY L 1986 jL^aurel Monthly Journal of Mountain Life PAGE 24 A self-guided monthly tour of Mountain Backroads mountains never get to see the really pretty places that are hidden away on mountain back roads. As residents who love and appreciate a stream gurgling through a glade or a deer standing in a roadside meadow or an old weathered barn tucked away in a mountain hollow, our BACKROAD column allows us to share our favorite spots with you. The highlight of this month's tour will be the old mountain community of Todd, North Carolina. It is a beautiful little community but when you enter it today try to imagine it as it was during the 1930 's as pictured on the front cover of this issue. Throughout the Blue Ridge there is a revival of the old country store taking place. In this day of high technology isn't it reassuring to know that something so much a part of our heritage is b...

June 1986 Monthly Journal of Mountain Life "IH Be There To Catch You Before You Fall." A Father's Day Story My mama, Edith James Mathes, and daddy, Ralph Mathes, met when they were both just 11 years old. They lived in Erwin, Tennessee, a beautiful little town in a valley surrounded by violet-blue mountains. I remember Mama telling me that Daddy picked wild floKers and would walk all the way to her house to bring them to her. He'd lay the flowers in a special spot near the house where she'd be sure to find them. Mama and Daddy got married in 1945 when they were only 17 years old. I was born the next year. My brother, Kenneth was born a year later, then Elaine 18 months later. In a few years my sister Barbara, then my brother Ralph Junior arrived. In eight years, Mama and Daddy had five children. Many times Daddy had to work two jobs to support us all. He'd come home after working at one job, sleep a few hours, then get up and go to the other job. Even though he worked long hours, he...

PAGE 2 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1986 Just Like Cinderella By: Lee Stallard My little mare, Beauty, clipclopped briskly along the county road. The antique Studebaker Buggy she pulled was one I had acquired a few years before and restored from a dilapidated state to very nearly its original excellence. Beauty, her white mane and tail flowing in the breeze, was transporting me to an activity unique in today's society. The clear air was tense with anticipation as I knew the crowd was gathering at the church to receive the bride, lovely in white ruffles and flowers, whom we were supposed to pick up around the next turn and deliver to her wedding. Beauty and I had shown the buggy and given rides at the community antique day the year before. Joan had been an enthusiastic participant at that outing and had remarked, "When I get married someday, I would like to ride to the church in a horse drawn carriage like Cinderella meeting her prince." So I answered, "I have the horse and carriage so ...

Home In Time For Planting By: John H. Yeatts During the afternoon of April 16, 1865 Thomas Spangler had turned a small hillside garden near his log house that stood just off the Cold Spring road in Mayberry, Virginia. While plowing he had uncovered several large earthworms and while his team rested he had located a piece of cardboard and shaped it into a crude box in which he placed some fresh dirt and several of the worms. He was planning, all the while, to saunter over the hill and down to Round Meadow Creek about sunset and snag a few of the abundant speckled trout that thrived in that creek for tomorrow's breakfast. He finished the last furrows, unyoked the oxen and turned them loose to forage on the young green sprouts of grass that were beginning to show in the apple orchard on the southern slope of the small productive place that would later become known as the Moore Place in Mayberry . Earlier that morning he had pounded two lead bullets flat, and now he was seated upon the ...

PAGE 4 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1986 Aunt Elva's Birthday Party By: Ivalien Hylton Belcher Here in the Blue Ridge, families still take time for birthday parties and reunions. Things of this nature tend to draw families closer. On April sth, there was a surprise birthday party for a very special lady, Eiva Hylton Howell. She is 82 years old and stays busy all the time. Sweet, loving, caring, sincere, neat and trim are just a few of the characteristics of this lovely lady. You would have to see her smile in person to really see how sweet and kind it is. I know - because Elva Hylton Howell is my aunt (my Dad's sister). The party had been in the planning stage for weeks and was to start at noon on a Saturday and last until - until everyone decided to go home. Getting Aunt Elva to the social hall was presenting a problem. On this particular day, she simply did not plan on going anywhere, but was home cooking. Grand-daughter Janet went by the house to pick her up, telling Aunt Elva they ...

AUNT ELVA Continued from page 4. window. Aunt Elva says, "From the time I saw Sam as a little boy in knee pants, he was mine and I claimed him!" When she was old enough, Aunt Elva and Uncle Sam were married at her home by Mr. Sol Hylton. Her sister got married the same time and they had a double wedding. Aunt Elva and Uncle Sam became the parents of five children, three girls and two boys. All are still living. Uncle Sam passed away a few years ago. Now, Aunt Elva lives alone in a neat white house in Patrick Springs. Although there are lonely times, she doesn't let any grass grow under her feet. Aunt Elva is a great cook with that special touch. She can take a bowl of lettuce, cut a green onion into it, add a little vinegar and makes it tasty. One day last summer when I was there, she was making fried apple pies. There were so many you would have thought there was a "working" or barn raising in the neighborhood. Aunt Elva said, "Well, I just thought someone might come by. You know h...

PAGE 6 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1986 Growing Up In The Mountains By: Nancy B. Collins When I was a child, my family lived at a historical old place called the Hubbard Place near Meadows of Dan, Virginia. The old house had 3 or 4 rooms. The reason I said maybe four, one room leaked when it rained so bad we could not use it for anything. We lived there for a good while, and it was a very good place to live. The house had a tin roof. When it rained, it sounded almost like some weird music. When I think about it, it sounded better than some so called music I hear today. The man we rented from was a curious old man. He had long hair and beard and was very stingy. He had a big apple orchard and fussed about any one that trespassed on his property or bothered his apples. He had two fine sons named Bethleham and Abraham. They tried to be nice to everyone to make up for the way their dad acted. One Halloween night, some young people tied a rope around the old man's calf's neck and tied it t...

Growing Up In The Mountains Continued from page 6 three pieces of leather, a sole and sides laced up with strings made from tanned squirrel hide. There was a spring near the church that I have been told is the head of the Dan River. They said that streams kept adding in this spring branch until it became a river. Near that spring was where the water divides, some running off to the east, some to the west. When the Pinnacles Dam was built, people said this would ruin everything, that water would quit flowing beyond this great dam. Water is still flowing down and the Dan River is doing well today. After many years, the old Concord church became run down. The floors were giving out and they had a very poor heating arrangement. The church was cold and damp. Not many people were coming there to worship any more. Some very fine people that had long been moved away from that part of the country, but still had roots there (my uncle and aunt who lived in Roanoke), heard about the way the chu...

PAGE 8 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1986 NEW PREACHER TN TOWN -■•11 ■■■ ▼▼ -L 1 ©COPYRIGHT 1986 By: Ernest Markwood Pritchard Another popular saying was, "Roosters are getting mighty scarce around here since the preacher began holding revival meetings in this neighborhood . " When invited out to dinner, my father very seldom sat down to a table that didn't have in the center a yellow-legged rooster (the tastiest were always supposed to be yellow-legged). It was a relief for him to have "ground hog" occasionally, and he confessed that it tasted even better when they called it sausage. Sometimes I would accompany Father to stay overnight at the home of a member of his "flock", but before going to bed, I had to suffer the usual routine, which went about as follows: "Well, Reverend, we'll show you to your bed. It's only large enough for one person, so I guess we'll have to hang Ernest on a nail tonight. We don't have any other place to put him." This joke always seemed fresh and new to the...

NEW PREACHER IN TOWN Continued from page 8. My parents appreciated this assistance coming from women of another (then quite different) religion just as much as if it had been offered by the most sincere Protestants. My parents' love for people of all faiths was reflected in their daily behavior. Although my father was dressed in ordinary street clothes, I believe that the Catholic sisters sensed that he was a Protestant minister, but it did not curb their desire to help us. When I recalled this experience many years later, I remembered the feelings of mutual love and understanding which were quite unique for the 1890's, as there was still in those days considerable prejudice among some members of the Catholic and Protestant faiths. The long trip from Chicago, Illinois to West Virginia was made entirely by daycoach. Still, the expense of this modest mode of travel was great enough to cause a troublesome financial problem for my father. I remember crossing the Ohio River bridge at Par...

"PAGE 12 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1986 The Mail Box Dear Editor, Enclosed is a check for which please send a subscription to The Mountain Laurel to my sister in Cleveland, Ohio because her husband transferred there, but her heart is still in North Carolina and our beautiful mountains. Thanks to all of you on The Mountain Laurel staff for giving so much reading pleasure to so many people. I always read every word you print and have enjoyed many of your suggested backroads trips.

BLUE RIDGE DIGEST Happy Anniversary Shenandoah National Park Shenandoah National Park is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The park covers 300 square miles of Blue Ridge Mountains from Front Royal to Waynesboro Virginia. It is accessible by the 105 mile Skyline Drive. Besides over 70 overlooks, it has over 500 miles of hiking trails, including part of the world famous Appalachian Trail. The first Europeans on this continent probably saw the Blue Ridge sometime in the early l6oo's. The first person to write about the experience was Dr. John Leder-er, a German physician and scholar in 1669. In general, settlement of the Shanandoah Valley began in the mid-1700's by Germans coming "up river" from Pennsylvania and by English and Scotts-Irish from Virginia's Tidewater region to the east. By 1800, settlement of the lowlands around the Park area was generally complete. The mountains themselves, however, remained relatively uninhabited. It was not until about 1830 that people began moving to...
