PAGE 14 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL, 1986 A NEW PREACHER IN TOWN MY FATHER ©COPYRIGHT 1986 Left to Right: Millard Fillmore Pritchard, Ernest Markwood Pritchard, At the Parsonage, Winifred, West Virginia 1898- A strong father figure is the most essential ingredient of a happy childhood. When a boy has a father who stands in the pulpit each Sunday and tells his congregation how to lead helpful and happy lives and plan for a perfect hereafter, and the people sit and listen without talking back call him "Reverend," invite him to Sunday dinner, seek his companionship on all occasions, and ask him for advice, that boy knows that his father is a wise and good leader, and he swells with pride because his father is a man of infinite importance. "Papa, what makes the telephone poles move?" This is one of the first questions I remember asking my father. "The telephone poles aren't moving," said Father. "They just appear to move. We're passing them so fast they look as though they're running away...

NEW PREACHER IN TOWN Continued from page 14. The picture was taken in Illinois. My parents had moved there from West Virginia, the birthplace of both, when Father was about thiry-two and Mom only seventeen. Left an orphan at the age of seventeen and being the eldest of eight children, Father set out to shift for himself, while his sister and six brothers were taken, into the homes of relatives. Father worked as a farm laborer and carpenter's helper until he was able, by self-education, to pass the examination which admitted him as a preacher in the United Brethren Church. His first appointments were to country circuits, consisting of from nine to twelve churches. To reach them, he traveled occasionally on horseback, but mostly on foot, as a horse was rarely available. Father never said much about his past history, but Mother told me that she first knew my father when she was a thirteen-year-old-schoolgirl, Rosa Nestor. He was her pastor at the Nestorville church in the small town na...

PAGE 16 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL 1986 LIFE IN A MINING CAMP I was born and raised (or reared) in a hollow at the tip end of Southwest Virginia. In this hollow were two mining camps Arno and Derby, Virginia. It was in Derby that my birth certificate states that I was born. But in reality this is only part true. It is true that all our mail came to the Derby Post Office. And it was here that Momma went each day to buy groceries at the company store. But we did not live in either Derby or Arno. Our house was located in a place called Saw Mill Camp. This was a double row of houses across the creek and right below the railroad tracks that ran along the mountainside. Saw Mill was ■ between Derby and Arno and unlike these two camps the houses here were single family dwellings. The people who lived in or visited Saw Mill had a choice of three ways in which to get to it. At the upper end was a foot bridge that everyone used to cross over into Derby. And about midway of the camp was a concre...

Hold one to your chair or head for the door, for that ain't all friend here comes more. Did you ever sleep on a straw-tick bed, no springs for your back or pillow for your head?

PAGE 18 THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL, 1986 MY LIFE AT WOOLWINE, VA. By: Nancy B. Collins Many years ago I lived at a place near Woolwine, Virginia, at my grandfather's home. This was a beautiful old place. The house was an old log house. Not the finest, but it was home for a while. Many things happened while we lived there that I shall always remember. I believe it was the year 1909 that Halley's comet was visable for about a month. There was a large family of us and we would all get up early, before daylight, and go out to see the Great Star with a long blaze behind it. This did not mean much to me then, but' since I grew up, I realize that it was a wonderful thing to see. One evening just about dark, we were all sitting out in the yard. We heard a noise out on the ridge near the house that sounded like someone was badly hurt. Mom and Dad went out through the corn field and found a young man that had fallen from the old wagon road that went around the ridge above the house. He was so ...

Wild, -fchinds S*S(f Hiking down a footpath in the Blue Ridge Mountains, I stopped to rest and there beside me stood a tall and stately milkweed, as proud as a military soldier in full dress. I stopped to smell the fragrance of the tiny flowers and suddenly I realized I had never heard one nice thing about the milkweed - Only farmers calling them bad names for poking their heads up all over the pasture and opening their seed pods with their parachute—like feathery seeds, to be borne by the wind to the far corners of the earth, making them impossible to control. I said aloud, "Well, the butterflies like you and you must be good for something." With this in mind, I hurried home to dp some research. The lovely Milkweed (Asclepias) is a perenial pot herb with milky juice (latex) in the leaves and stalks, hence the name. All parts are edible and the milky juice is the subject of numerous experiments seeking a native rubber. The sprouts when about six inches tall are good when cooked like...
