PAGE 14 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1986 Called To Work By The Bell By: Jackie R. Sharp My home town is Fries, (pronounced Freeze), Virginia. This small town is nestled deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Grayson County and is situated on the banks of the picturesque New River. When a bout of nostalgia hits me, I remember many things, about life in this small cotton mill town during the 30's and 4 O's. However one of my fondest memories is the ringing of the mill bell. Today, the mill bell can be seen on the roof of the Fries Textiles Company building. It has its own neat housing and is on the west end river side of the plant. The bell is now silent. It is no longer used to call employees to work. When the big bell was in its hey day, the day of a typical mill worker began at 5 AM. At this time the bell rang five times. This was called the "five o'clock bell" and it was important. This was the call to get up. The women in the households punched up the fire and put break- fast on at th...

PAGE 16 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1986 Bluegrass Manna By: Mel Tharp Manna was the food miraculously given to the Isrealites in the wilderness as they fled from Egypt. The Reader's Digest Encyclopedic Dictionary defines manna as "any nourishment received as by divine bounty". If this defination holds true, Kentucky burgoo can justifiably be called "Bluegrass manna". Burgoo is uniquely western Kentucky. Perhaps it is a gift endowed on western Kentucky by God in his bountiful generosity. Along with barbeque and country ham, burgoo is frequently mentioned as one of Kentucky's most popular and distinctive regional dishes. Described generally as a thick stew with every possible ingredient included but the proverbial kitchen sink, burgoo has been known in the state since before the Civil War, and continues to be particularly popular in the Bluegrass region and portions of western Kentucky. The origin of burgoo is uncertain. Sources list as many origins as there are ingredients in burgoo. ...

PAGE 18 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1986 Never Mind The Luck Give Us The Theatricals! Editor's Note...Are fishermen the same the world over? This article from Scotland seems to confirm it, or could it just be that Scotland was the homeland of many of the settlers in the Blue Ridge? To hear some anglers talking you'd think there was no such thing as luck. You walk into the cocktail bar of one of those fishing hotels and say, "Whose salmon is that on the tray out in the hall?" and then some redfaced man in a tweed suit will say, "Mine". "It's a nice fish. What weight is it?" "Oh - not all that big. Ten pounds." "Where did you get him?" "Down at the graveyard pool." "On a fly?" "Yes. Took a Cinnamon-and-Gold'.' You might think that's that. Don't you believe it! He's going to feel cheated if you don't carry on with the questions. He wants to give you a blow-by-blow account. "What size of fly?" "Quite big. Number 3. I had it tied locally by old Bamber in my village. He ties them superbly -...

June 1986 Monthly Journal of Mountain Life Goodby Old Home 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. Over the last few years the old rented farmhouse where we live has also been home to The Mountain Laurel. It has witnessed the reality of a dream come true. It was here that the first issue was created and the dream was born. It, like the Blue Ridge, will always hold a special place in our hearts. Early on the morning of Tuesday, May 13th we learned that our water system was contaminated and unfit for use. After inspecting the water supply a...

JULY, 1986 Monthly Journal Of Mountain Life Notice something different this month? This is the very first issue of The Mountain Laurel typeset on our new equipment, headlines, ads and all! After three and a half years, our Olivetti typewriter is getting a well deserved rest, and the new equipment is being used. We hope you like the way it looks. We have left the type as large as it was to be easier to read. We are just getting used to it and you'll probably still find mistakes we didn't catch. (Any machine is only a foolproof as the fool operating it) We're very proud of this issue and hope you like it. You, our readers and advertisers make it all possible, and your approval and understanding is very important to us. When we put together an issue of The Mountain Laurel, it's like we are pulling up a chair into a circle of old friends. When you contribute your own stories to us, we anxiously await printing them to share with the rest of our family of readers. Whoever gave Elba, Kentu...

PAGE 2 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JULY, 1986 BY: ERNEST MARKWOOD PRITCHARD (EDITED BY: EMILY P. CARY) © 1986 My speech problems were still very evident by the time I was six years of age. I was unable to call my sister Helen by her name, so I called her Anna, which scarcely sounded like Helen. Wishing me to speak her name properly, Helen began drilling me on the correct pronunciation, stressing both syllables to deeply impress me with the proper sounds. After many long drills, her endeavors met with some success; at least the neighbors were duly impressed by the shrill voice of a small boy calling, "Hell-in, Hell-in, Hell-in!" We had been at my Grandmother Nestor's home for about a month when my father arrived from Illinois saying that he expected our household goods to reach West Virginia "most any time now." And so, we departed for our new home in Winfred, a little coal-mining town in southern West Virginia, a few miles from Charleston, the state capital, and four miles from the Great Kanawh...

BOOTS BUGS THE JOHN Continued from page 1 you get back to whatever it is you're doing." "I was trying to find an alarm clock," Boots said weakly. He was clutching a petticoat in his fist. "Of course, I understand," Ann said knowingly. Her leer and tone of voice indicated that she had formed some strong opinions about what Boots did for recreation. She paid for her malted milk and hurriedly left the store, glancing back over her shoulder as if she expected to be attacked by this pervert. Boots survived the afternoon. Happily, there was no inimical aftermath to spoil the congenial relationship between father and son. Boots never got mad. He did vow to get even. It was about this point in time that Fuqua Bus Lines started a bus service in the area. The bus made a daily round trip from Henderson to Owensboro. The bus ran through some winding backcountry roads, stopping at farmhouses and country stores along the way. It was a boom to people living in the area; many of whom had no transpo...

PAGE 4 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JULY, 1986 THE HOUSE WE COULDN'T TALK ABOUT My father entered the kitchen with the newest copy of "The Dixie Miller" in his hand. He was visibly excited, and his Irish blue eyes were bluer than ever. "I'm going to take a little trip and see about this ad," he said. "Oh Lord!", wailed Mother, "not another of your wild goose chases! You want to move every year. I'm not going to leave here. You make a good living, the children love it, and we are not going to give up this place!" I had never heard her protest any of his moves before. "It will give us plenty to talk about," he smiled. We were never permitted to mention those few months in the house to anyone. In all his tales that father loved to tell, that was one ghostly experience he never mentioned. He returned after two days absence. "It's the chance of a lifetime," he exulted. "The harvest season is over here, and unless I get some orders for homemade furniture, I won't be busy.

THE HOUSE WE COULDN'T TALK ABOUT Continued from page 4 Anne and Alice came in to help us dress. "Come on in the kitchen and eat. Papa's gone to work and Carrie is helping clean up the kitchen. "I think we ate it all," Anne teased. Charles kicked her and we went across the big scary hall to the kitchen. Mother placed two plates of pancakes with butter and our favorite maple syrup before us. There was even coffee with milk and sugar. "It ain't Christmas or nobody's birthday, why are we getting coffee?," Charles asked suspiciously. "Is it because the hant scared us?," I asked. "Eat and go out and watch the trains," my mother answered. Don't go out of the gate," she cautioned. "We are going to gather those pecans so we will watch them," Alice promised. A big yellow cat rubbed against my legs and I picked her up and cradled her. I felt lonely, for all our pets we had left behind. We ran to the gate and watched a long train winding around the curves below us. Charles waved and the enginee...

PAGE 6 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JULY, 1986 THE MAGIC OF LOVE (THE RAVEN'S TALE OF THE ORIGIN OF STRAWBERRIES) Blackfox was a Conjuror. He could perform all kinds of magic. When he hunted small animals, he never carried a bow and arrow. He chanted a magic song and the animal fell down before him. He didn't need a blowgun to shoot birds. He held out his hand and charmed them to come to him. His magic was strong, because he only took what he needed for food. One day when he was sitting under a tree waiting for a squirrel to appear, he heard strange music. He followed the sound to a place where it seemed the loudest. It was a plaintive melody and he could just make out the words: I am beautiful as the Red Bird, And powerful as the Brown Panther; I follow the white path, And I am never blue. He looked all around but could see nobody. There was a grapevine swaying back and forth between two trees, as if someone had been sitting on it He was disappointed. Whoever had been singing and swinging had d...

PAGE 8 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JULY, 1986 You can't miss Cudjo's Cave. It's right in the middle of Cumberland Gap on Highway 25E. A sign on the side of the mountain marks the entrance, and a souvenir stand and snack bar are perched on a cliff across the road. At first glance, it looks like one of those seedy, roadside tourist traps which used to dot the highways before the interstates were completed-I was surprised to discover that the whole thing is run by Lincoln Memorial University. I was heading to the university to do some research for my doctoral thesis. The library at L.M.U. had most of the source material I needed on the Lincoln-Douglas debates, and I really liked the idea of getting away from Chicago for the summer. The school is in Harrogate, which is just across the Tennessee line and over the mountain from Middlesboro, Kentucky. Those two states and Virginia all come together right at Cumberland Gap. I hadn't realized how hot the summers were in this part of the country, and aft...

THE GHOST OF CUDJO'S CAVE Continued from page 8 his eyes appear dark and solemn. He wore a battered straw hat, a ragged canvas shirt and trousers, and old-fashioned work boots, As he came toward me, I caught sight of a large, jagged opening ripped through his clothes and into his abdomen; it wasn't bleeding. He had a knife. In his right hand he clutched a hunting knife. I suppose that it was nothing special, but my eyes were open so wide, it looked like a cross between a Bowie knife and a cavalry sabre. "What you doing here in my cave at night?" He sat down across from me and began to fill a small pipe he had taken from his pocket. "I usually sits here alone of an evening." I tried to hold the light steady by resting my hands on my knees, but it twitched and jerked with every heartbeat. No matter how much I wanted to look away from the knife lying beside him, my eyes kept turning back to it. Then I noticed that he didn't have a shadow; the light was shining right through him onto th...
