Little Shaefer carries the strange device to the place desired, puts it down with the point upward, crawls under it, and reads. The design and purpose of the unique contrivance is, of course, 1o exclude the light. "What on earth is that funny-looking thing over there?" said a visitor to Mrs. Shaefer the other day, pointing to the device as it sat on the porch of the Shaefer residence. "We have no particular name for it," said Mrs. Shaefer, with a smile, "but T will show you what is under it." She walked across the porch and quickly raised it from the floor.

Volume 2, Number 7. IT HELPS BUSINESS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN TEL- PHONES AND TRADE. Extension ol' the Service Into Pendleton County Has Benefitted Harrisonburg. The reader will perhaps wonder when the above heading is rearl what connection can exist between telephones and trade, or how one can be promotive of the other. But that an affislty, or something, exists between them there can be no doubt. When the old Valley Telephone Company was running the telephone business here the people over in Pendleton tried in vain to got a connection from Franklin to Harrisonburg, and the Valley Company gave several times the cold shoulder to tbelr propositions. In fact the Franklin people were so anxious }n regard to the matter that they proposed to build a telephone line to Ihe top of the mountain (half-way) if the Valley Company would build a line to meet theirs. Even this was not accepted nad the matter was dropped. At that time our trade with our Pendleton friends was small, in fact very smal...

The Evening News. WEnXESDA Y. NOVEMBER 13, 1599. BANDS ON BATTLE FIELDS. Mimlc Has an Ingplrlnff RlTcot and Aids In Dispelling; Weariness on tlie March. The utility of music in matters pertaining to war is probably one of the greatest forces. At the present (lay, in all the armies of the world, musical war signals are considered not only useful, but absolutely indispensable. The infantry drill regulations of many countries give the music and significance of more than CO trumpet signals —calls of naming, of assembling, of alarm, of service and so on—besides a do*en or more drum and life signals, all of which is a definite language to h soldiers. But its use is not merely confined to signaling, for music is used in other ways for purposes of war. In the way of dispelling weariness on the march nothing is equal to the music of a brass band. Lord Wolseley, says Pearsons, has remarked that "troops that sing as they march will not only resell their destination more quickly and in better f...

The mill is said to be a perfect one and all of its machinery up to date, and thai this mill is capable of making as good flour aw is made anywhere in the Union.
