PAGE 2 MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL, 1987 THE MECHANICAL BASS OF MULE MOUNTAIN LAKE BY: STEVEN HESS Editor's Note... Spring fishing season is upon us and we try each year to come up with a "whopping fish tale" for your amusement. We hope you will enjoy this years offer. Uncle Johnny was a fisherman, year after year, catching the biggest bass of the season out of Mule Mountain Lake where he lives. He was a lucky fisherman. You know the kind, the kind about which other fisherman talk and say, "Some guys have all the luck". Uncle Johnny has an advantage over most fisherman as he lived there even before they dammed Mule Creek and formed the lake so he knows every inch of the place. His secret hole for the big ones, hardly a hole, but that's what he calls it, is a narrow submerged gully that ends just off shore against a rocky shallow that looks so rocky and shallow that nobody fishes there. Poor Uncle Johnny -- Poor? The envy of every fisherman on Mule Mountain Lake yes, poor. The poor guy spe...

MECHANICAL BASS Continued from Page 2 the work and money that went into her. When fishermen would encroach on his favorite hole, Bonnie would glide in from the depths, splash water twenty feet in the air and lure the invaders away. She'd role on the surface and take off with a string of boats in pursuit. They'd cast plug after plug at her trying to get her to bite, some trying (unsportsman like) to snag her. She'd snap their heavy lines. She was strong. Seven hundred pounds of pulling power was packed into her hull! The mechanical bass was snagged, netted, gaffed, and finally rammed by a heavy wooden boat. She was never landed and suffered only minor damage. The damage was costly in parts and in time, so Uncle Johnny had no time left for fishing anymore. It was time for drastic action. Back to the workshop. At least he didn't have to worry about his fishing spots now. Now that Bonnie wasn't cavorting around the lake, the locals said, "No sense in fishing now. If Uncle Johnny's not o...

PA(JE 4 MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL, 1987 EARL PALMER, THE MOUNTAIN PHOTOGRAPHER BY: DALE BELCHER © )9 87 Editor's Note... One of Earl Palmer's best photographic subjects was Dale Belcher's great grandfather, Newton Hylton. Newton Hylton did the restoration work for the National Park Service on Mabry Mill in the 1930'5. Earl was on hand to photograph the process. Years later, Dale met Earl Palmer by chance at Ferrum College, Virginia. On a cold day in early December I got up early one Saturday morning and started the thirty-two mile trip to Christiansburg. I was going to spend the weekend with my good friend, Earl Palmer. I would go over to his house and we would go up in the mountains and take pictures. We would take the backroads to try to find things from the past. We have been taking pictures together for nearly two years. We've been to West Virginia about three times and this past fall, we took a two day trip to Harlan County, Kentucky to visit some of the places he lived and worked ...

PAGE 6 MOUNTAIN LAUKEL APRIL, 1987 We almost had some excitement up here last week. One day I dropped in on Uncle French and Aunt Ollie, and I found Uncle French so full of himself he was about to bust his seams. "Bet you never thought you had kin that's famous across three states," he says with a big possum-grin. His broad face is flushed red, clean to the roots of his white hair. "And who might that be?" I ask, real innocent. "Why, who do you reckon, boy? They done heard about me all the way to Georgia." He just stands there and gloats awhile, leaving me to wonder what anybody in Georgia - or anywhere else, for that matter - could have heard about Uncle French. Finally he comes out with it. "They's a lady professor comin' all the way up here from some college down in Georgia, iust to see me. She's writin' a book of stories, and she's comin' to see me just so she can hear some good 'uns. And she'll be here at two o'clock, so you can wait and see for yourself." He struts around the ...

1925: LEARNING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CITY AND COUNTRY SMELLS. BY : GRACE CASH © 1987 There was a severe drought in Georgia in 1925. We laid our crops by early, since not even the grass and weeds would grow, but withered punily and straggled hopelessly in the loose hot earth. On the last day of June Mama didn't need us for chores because the drought had blighted the wild things too, the plums and berries crumbling and parching till they looked like potato bugs. Since she had nothing for us to do, and not wanting us underfoot all day, Mama sent us to visit Grandma, who lived a mile down the highway. The incident promised unusual liberty or my oldest brother, Frank, would have never condescended to go with my two younger sisters and me. Mama sorted us, four to go, three to stay. It was a quiet decision, with no rankling of tempers. The day started gentle and still, like the dry burning sun and the parched land by the roadside. We walked, accustomed to walking even further on Sundays w...

PAGE 8 MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL, 1987 SHENANDOAH IRON & COAL COMPANY One of the earliest industries of the Shenandoah Valley, which has since disappeared, is iron production. Ore beds are located at various spots throughout the valley where operations were started nearby. These furnaces operated with charcoal technology. The last commercial furnace in the valley closed shortly before the first World War. One such operation flourished along Stoney Creek which rises on the slope of Great North Mountain and flows eastward in the valley. At the town of Edinburg, Stoney Creek flows into the Shenandoah River. Six miles west of Edinburg, Columbia Furnace was first established. Several miles further up the stream, Liberty Furnace was located. Both furnaces figured in the holdings of the Pennypacker family who were prominent in early valley iron operations. Columbia Furnace was originally constructed in 1803, with additional lands added until 1808. On October 10, 1808, the property ...

SHENANDOAH IRON Continued from Page 8. transported by the railroad to Edinburg where it was put into ricks 30 feet wide, 200 feet long, and 15 feet high. The ricks had a cone shaped roof to shed water. Operations of the Shenandoah Iron & Coal Company's railroad continued without incident until March 2, 1911. On that morning the train left Liberty Furnace as usual and was crossing over Stony Creek when a span of the trestle gave way. The Shay overturned killing engineer James Sine, and injuring fireman Tom Foltz. The cause was traced to decayed bridge timbers. In a matter of days, both the locomotive and the bridge were repaired. Thomas Foltz was promoted to engineer and Seward Sine became fireman. The railroad continued operations, but the arrival of hard surfaced roads to the area began to erode the railroad's traffic. Around 1917, the narrow gauge railroad ceased operation. The tracks remained in place until 1934 when they were taken up for scrap by the depot agent Gen...

PAGE 10 MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL, 1987 NEW PREACHER IN TOWN BY: ERNEST MARKWOOD PRITCHARD We could hardly wait for Father to return from Richwood after preaching he first Sunday sermons at his new appointment. His description of the railroad trip from Clarksburg to Richwood intrigued us so that we insisted he remember every detail. He began by saying that the train conductor, taking up his ticket shortly after leaving the Clarksburg station at about twelve o'clock noon, had remarked in a friendly way that Father would be with him all the rest of the day. He confirmed that this was practically true because it was six o'clock when the train - right on time - pulled into the brilliantly lighted "boom city" of Richwood. Father explained that Richwood was extremely well lighted because the Cherry River Boom and Lumber Company, owners of the immense sawmill located there, operated an enormous electric plant with capacity for lighting several towns of Richwood's size. In contrast with the dar...

THE STRANGE TRUE STORY OF THE BELL WITCH OF TENNESSEE Editor's Note... The following is the third of a five part series of stories sent to us by the Tennessee Department of Tourism Development. If you like "haint" stories, you're going to love this one! ANDREW JACKSON MEETS THE BELL WITCH. Adams, Tenn. - While Elizabeth Bell and her father were the chief victims of the Witch's torments, no member of the Bell family escaped. Kate was not always a vindictive spirit either. The Witch could be helpful when it wished. Once when John Bell, Jr. was planning a trip back to North Carolina to settle his father's share of an estate, Kate told him the trip was a waste of time, that the estate had not been settled yet and if he went he would come back with nothing. John, Jr. insisted he was going anyway. The Witch told him he was making a mistake. It said that a young lady was on her way to visit relatives in Robertson County. It said that she was very beautiful and very rich, that she owned 40 ...

APRIL, 1987 For millions of country music fans around the world, Nashville, Tennessee is "Music City, USA." Each year hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to Nashville in search of the city's most famous commodity. For many of them the shrine is a barn shaped building called the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Firmly planted in the heart of Nashville's "Music Row" district at the corner of 16th Avenue and Division Street and surrounded by many of the city's 270 music publishing companies and 62 recording studios, the museum is as winsome as the music it shelters and the country music legends who populate it. The more than 20,000 square feet of floor space contains two movie theaters showing rare television and film clips and 14 separate exhibit areas. One colorful exhibit highlights the various aspects of the Grand Old Opry through its history. "The Grand Ole Opry: The First 60 Years", documents the Opry's birth in 1925 when the Nashville based National Life and Accident I...
