Washington, D. 0., Februaiy 13.—The Dspartment of Agriculture has taken action, which oan only be construed to mean that in Virginia there is a section whioh is, in the opinion of the depart tnent experts, better adapted to the growth of fruit, especially apples, than is any other in the United States The department bas just concluded Bn arrangement with Hon. S L, LuptoD, through whioh an experimental ojmmeroial orohard will be estab lished un bis farm, in Frederick county, near Winchester, and whioh will be made the model orohard of the United States.  The agreement is indefinite as to duration, and, from the nature of the oase, will run for many years. The proceeds ot the orohard, whioh is to embrace forty acres, will ga to Mr. Lupton, and the department will aid him in selling the fruit. The arrangement may be advantageous to Mr. Lupton direotly. It is certain to be of immense advantage to the fruit growers of that Bection of oountry extending from Hagerstown to the North Carolina line, whioh the pomologiats of the Department of Agriculture pronounce the finest fruit oountry in America,  The orohard whioh will be planted on Mr Lupton's farm by the department will embrace« forty aores. It will be devoted to apples almost entirely. The varieties whioh will be planted are the Ben Davis, York Imperial, Grimes Golden, Jonathan, Stay-man and the Wealthy, all winter varieties, with the exception of the last named. There will be a few Albemarle Pippins planted, though Frederick - is not within what is known as the pippin be'lt  "Nobody knows more than approximately tho oost of bringing an orohard to bearing," said Mr. Lupton, in this city today. "Fruit growers have alwayB guessed at the oost, but we are going to learn the actual coat from the time the trees are purchased for planting until they come into bearing. In this way we will bo able to estimate accurately the profits there are in fruit growing.  I have had long experience in fruit raising, and claim to understand it pretty well, but I am to follow the cultural directions of the department in the management of the orohard, in bringing it to maturity, and in gathering and packing fruit."  And then Mr. Lupton went into a learned discussion of nurse and cover crops, aLd the best of each kind. It seems that there is considerable diversity of opinion as to the best nurse crops, that is, the oropa which may be grown in an orchard while the orohard is coming to maturity, suoh as oorn, wheat, eto A oover crop is one whioh is desired merely for the purpose of covering the ground, such as peas, eto  "I am just returning from a session of the Pomologioal Society of Oonnectiout, at Harlford," said Mr. Lupton "I was invited to appear before the society and speak on fruit packing, I am oonvinued we are a long ways ahead of Oonnectiout growers in fruit raising, espaoially in paok-ing it for luarkot. We have a much better oountry in whioh to raise fruit. I agree with those who say that the section from whioh I come, the Valley of Virginia, is the best in the United States for the growth of apples, especially."  The fruit growing industry of the Valley of Virginia, especially of the oountry contiguous to Winchester, is of enormous proportions at present, and Mr. Lupton said today that the orohards now plauted gave guarantee that the yield would inoieaee at the rate cf 100,000'barrels every two yeats for the next ten years.

The growers register in a book kept at the hotels of the town, giving the name, the location of the farm and the variety and quantity of apples for sale. This book is for the use of the apple buyer, who oomes to the hotel and finds bis apple crop before his eyeB, as it were. As a crop is sold the faot is so indicated on the "apple book" at the hotel,  Mr. Lupton's/father planted the first commercial orohard in the Valley of Virginia, This was in 1875. He set forty acres in Albemarle Pippin's, and his neighbors mourned for him as a man who bad lost his mind. But in 1886, when his apfile orop yielded him $5,200, they ; were disposed to think John Lupton was not bo orBzy after all.  There ie a great future for the Valley of Virginia as a fruit growing section, t;Men now living will see the day When it will be known throughout this oountry as the fruit Bection of Amerioa, and the action of the department in locating a model orohard in Frederick ooanty is but the forerunner of the day.  lacey "spring.

Cootes' Store, Feb. 11.—Quite a crowd assembled at this plaoe yesterday to hear the oase of Robert Smoke vs, S. S. Bowman, whioh grew out of the desperate fight between these parties, an account of whioh has already been published in the Daily News. When Squires Howver and Neff oalled the curious and expectant assemblage to order and announced that court had convened, both belligerents" appeared with blaokened eyes and bruised faces, mute witnesses to the intensity of the encounter, and announced their readiness for the trial.  After hearing a mass of testimony, the justices fined each belligerent $2 50 and oosts, amounting to $7.50, and in addition they were put under peace bonds in the penalty of $100 for one year, These rugged and warlike citiens now have ore year in whioh to ponder over the folly of resortiDg to violent means to settle their differences.  Dr O. S. Dodd, is preparing to build an office.  Mrs, Marjorie Cootes will start this evening for Roanoke on a visit to Ler mother.  B. & 0 WANTS VALLEY.  SALVATION R0UGHT TO WOMAN  Its Birth Entails Eternal Abiding Pla^C| Among the Hindu Gods.  A picturesque ceremony marked the advent of the fifth generation of Shri-mati Jwaladevi, a Hindu woman of Doble family, Bt Amritfar India.  Accordirg to Hindu scriptures, the old woman, by tho birth of a eon to her greatgrandacn, attained salvation, and on death will to 'he region of thegods and dwell among them.  Tho event was nIoLrated by a ceremony calltd Svarga Sopanqurohanam, whioh meane rising to heaven by means of a ladder. After a bath in the Ganges the voman took a Beat on a platform arranged by tho family priest, while a thanksgi ving eervioe was held.  Then a heap of rice, on whioh was p'aced a email ladder of gold, was laid before hrr, and ts the new-born child was^la,id in her lap ehe put her right foot on the Brat rung of the ladder.  The asse mbled party thereupon cheered her and ehowered rice and flowers abont her, wh"«-' briaj instruments were p'ajed acd hymns were sung.  President Murray Says Effort to Regain Is Being Made.  At a meeting of the Staunton board of trade a letter was read from President Murray, of tho B. & O. Railroad, which contained several interesting statements bearing on tho railroad situation in the Valley, One was that the B & O. management had not.,the remotest intention of surrendering the Valley Railroad between Harrisonburg and Lexington to the Chesapeake & Ohio, whatever might be the result of negotiations looking to the operation by the O. & O. of a through train daily between Har-rionaburg and Lynohbuorg.  The other—whioh is still more interesting to people of the upper Valley—is Mr Murray's statement that the B. & O. is making a decided effort to regain from the Southern the section of road between Harrisonburg and Strasburg Junction, in order that the former B. & O. through service between Lexington and Baltimore may be restored as it was prior to 1896, when the B. & O. reoeivers, by permission of the federal oourt in Maryland, terminated its 99-year lease of the Strasburg and Harri> sonburg division,  , Persons oidinarily qualified to express an opinion do not believe that the Southern Railway oan be induced to surrender its holdings south of Strauburg Junction, upon whioh the traffic is quite profitable; but that a serious effort is being made by the B. & O. to regain its old Valley Division is no longer open to question, in veiw of President Murray's explioit statement to that effect.

West Virginia Preacher Taken in Custody on Charge of Passing Counterfeit Money.  Hamlin. W. Va., Feb 14 — Rev. Washington Hagar, a prominent Linooln oounty minister, is in jail, oharged with counterfeiting. Hagar is alleged to have passed a $2 bill that had been raised to $10, on James Porter, ex-sheriff of Linooln oounty, and »mother on Crockett Booth, of Had ley, Porter and Booth did not discover that they had been auped until several hours after-- urda Then Constable Robert Snodgrass was given warrants for ¡he arrest of the preacher.  The officer found Hagar preaoh-ng at Big Ugly. He walked into the crowded meeting honse and up to the pulpit, arresting the preacher in tbe midst of his Berra on. After a preliminary hearing before a justice, Hagar was held to tbe grand jury,  Lincoln oounty officials and sev-rirBl Treasury Department offioers, ■■vho had also been detailed on the case, have bad a long search for tbn man who has been circulating raised bills for the past few months. Several Hadley and Hamlin merchants were victimized by the bills whidh are bo olev-erly raised that it takes an expert to detect them.  To Keep Your Hands Pretty.  Women who are afraid to wash their hands for fear of making 'hem chap oan quiet their fears Soap and water never yet injured a pair of bands, but there are ways and ways of washing the hands, and particularly in the winter.  Take warm water, and let it be soft. Add a teaspoonful of borax powder to the water to soften it, and still more if necessary. Now take good Boap and wash the hands well, Next rinse them, and when the hands ure perfeotly free from soap dry ttiem perfeotly, then rub a little skin food into them. Men's hands do not chap in winter, beoause they wear thiok glomes, oo that their hands are not subjeoted^to the extremes of heat and cold.  Women who are addicted to the reprehensible habit of biting their linger nails will find a remedy in keeping them polished The nails, if very highly polished, feel brittle to the teeth, and there is not the same temptation to bite them. Women will not bite highly manicured nails, it iB said that polish for the nails is going out of fashion, but still one sees it, for there is something very attraotive about the gloss, a certain dainty finish which cannot be obtained in any other manner. Polishing tho nails with tho palm of the hand gives good results. Put a little poliBhing powder in one palm, rub the nails vigorously, and then, shaking the powder out of the band, polish them. This give a deaper, pinkor flush than the ordinary polisher, and so is preferred.—New York Globe.  The Christian ohurches at Constantinople, Turkey, and Yokahoma, JapaD, have long used the Longman it Martinez Paints for painting their churches.  Liberal contributions of L. A- M.

TLo oity authorities of Staunton are considering the advisability of iatroduoing the water meter Bys-tom, It is favored by all the members of the Water committee of the Oity Counoil and by nearly every Councilman.  Ab the situation now stands, it is almost impoasible to keep the reservoir full, even by cutting off the water from the oity from mid* night until 5 a. m. of eaoh twenty-four hours. The water superintendent reports that during the entire month of November he had no difficulty in keeping the reservoir full, and that during that month, be shut down the pumps for 58 hours. They have never been shut down for a single hoar since. The oause of this, Supt. Mooie olaims, is the waste of water inoident to leaving hydrants open nights to prevent their freezing.  The meter system is employed at Petersburg, and it is claimed gives entire satisfaction. The amount of water used in Staunton is about 125 gallons per capita, while it is stated that under the meter system the rate is on an average of from 40 to 80 gallons,  A Snowstorm in New York.  Some idea of the severity of the late snowstorms in New York may be gathered from a few items like these: In tbe twenty-four hours following the heavy downfall there were two shifts at work shoveling snow, aggregating 10,000 men, who cleaned Broadway from the Battery to Times Square, and Fifth avneue to Sixty-fifth street. To cart away what theBe men could shovel were 5,000 trucks whioh hauled away 400.000 loads. It is estimated that the blizzard will have oost for suoh work $300,000. The surfaoe trolley lines were for a time entirely suspended, and two days after the Btorm there was only partial resumption of traffio, But for the elevated and subway lines there would have been no passenger eervioe. These, however, proved adequate. The number of passengers oarried in one day on tbe former was 835,000, and on the latter, 411,000. The subway eervioe proved fully adequate to tlm demands made on it.—Louisville Courier-Journal,  conferrees divide territory.  Tenth District Patronage Men Take Four Counties Apiece.
