The Historic City.
Rosxox, Oct. 19, 1883.
The locality- now known as Boston was
originally called in the Indian, dialect
"Shawwut," and oueof the avenues of
the city now bears that name. :
The early settlers called the place
"Triniouutaiu" from the hills which
marked the locality, lu September of
1630, the court theu being held at Charles

name in England, from which many colo

tablet ou which the facts are recorded.
It may be of interest to continue around
the city in search of what may he seen of
historic interest. Faneuil Hall must be
visit. Here we find a spacious hall, the
floor sprinkled with white sand (as many
of our eoun tiy sitting rooms are) aud des
titute of scats, excepting a few chairs ou
the rostrum which are relics. Numerous
old paintings udoru the walls, the most
prominent is 1 Italy's great pictures 4 ' Web

the harbor this glistening dome catches
the eye, aud is the last object seen as the
city fades iu the distance. Statues of
Mann and Webster guard the approach
on either side. Iu the rotunda are stat
ues aud busts of men famous in their day;
among them the statue of Gov. Andrews,
the busts of Sumner, Lincoln, Adams aud
Wilson. Some ta'terd flags which were
borne by federal soldiers in the war
agaiust the Confederate States are also
displayed. They are doubly interesting
to people from the South, for they are
badly cut by bullets they do us honor

snow balls. This is the identical spot,
made famous by the hanging of witches.
Even the spot where grew the elm from
a branch ot' which was swung Ann Hib-

witches, is euclosed with an iron railing.
The original tree blew down during a vi

It was found a month ago impeded in a
coal vein iu one of the mines of the
Leonard Coal Company, in Chester coun

remarkable specimen of petrifaction many
hundred feet beneath the earth's surface
was thunderstruck at the discovery, aud
experienced something like a cold chill
down las back for the first few moments
after his pick had brought to light the
serpent's head. He called his comrades,
and they aided him iu digging it out.
It had to be cut into sixteen sections
before it was gotten out of the vein. The
suake is of a dark lead color. Its head,

served, the outlines being quite distinct.

Ah briefly stated iu the Commonwealth
last week, Messrs. Hatch & Curtis, of
Rochester, N. Y., have, at tho Offett
building, commenced the business of dry
ing apples ou a large scale. The Offett
building is one of the largest in Harrison
burg, but a new building was erected on
the lot, to enable the work to be proper
ly pushed. In the Offett buildiug, a re
porter for the Commonwealth found, yes
terday, all the indications of a bee' hive,
minus the stings the sweetness was
there, as reflected from the smiling happy
faces of about twenty-five of our Harri
sonburg ladies who were engaged iu par
ing aud slicing the apples. Every em
ployee of the establish in cut was busy.
This industry gives em ploy men t to about
forty of our citizens, and will continue
until the middle of December, possibly
longer. Nearly 2000 bushels of apples
have already been delivered, and Messrs.
Hatch & Curtis have contracted for about
10,000 bushels more. The apples are first
taken regardless of condition or size, par
ed, sljced and cored, which is the work ef
a few seconds, as it is doue by machinery,
then passed to bauds who remove all
particles ef peelings, specks, bruised or
The machinery, or rather tlte imple
ments, used in the factory are few aud
simple, consisting of furnaces, trays,
sieves, evaporators, bleacher and pearers.
The furnaces, two iu number, which are
nothing more thau large, odd-shaped
stoves encased in galvanic iron cylinders,
are seated on the first floor and are heat
ed by coal. The hot air iu the cylinder;,
mentioned above, is carried through large
tin pipes to the evaporators ou the sec
oud door. The evaporators are about
eight feet high, ten by four at the base,
aud six by four at the top, glass doors,
and lined throughout with asbestos. In
these the fruit is placed ou wire sieves,
where iu about four hours it is thorough
ly dried and ready for shipment. The
preparation of the fruit for the evapora
tor is all made 011 the first floor. The
peaiers, which peaJ, core aud slice, are
arranged 011 tables, one hand operating
each machine. For this work females
are preferred, and for which five cent
pei bushel is paid. An expert land can
peel from twelve to fifteen bushels per
day. It is next placed iu the bleacher iu
'which process sulphur is largely used.
1 lie capacity of the factory is about 200
bushels of green apples per day. The
price paid is from twenty to thirty cents
per bushel, according to size and quality
though almost auy apple that is sound
can be used.
There is no wasto in any shape, as the
cores aud pealings are conveyed to the
new building, aud hoisted to the lop

uiidit, we sympathize greatly with the
broad views expressed by Col. Tom Holt.
They are the words of statesmanship
We need to foster, encourage' and build
up North Carohno. We shou.d do every
thine at home that cau be doue. When
in the office of Mr. Edward Atkinson the
other day, he casually remarked that the
insurance business coming to that office
aggregated $70,000,000. Col. Holt is
right. We should insure at home. A
big mutual insurance company, backed
by strong men, with a paid 'up capital of,
sav, $100,000, with a limitation on rate
of dividends, and annual distribution of
surplus over a certain reserve among the
insured, would be the very thing we
need. As it is now all road lend away
from home. A change is needed, and
