Darling son thou hast left us

Your loving voice is stilled,

Your chair is vacant in our home

Which never can be filled.


How we miss you darling son

No tongue but ours can tell.

We alone must bear our sorrow

For thou doeth all things well.


As we look into your Casket

Pure and white and, Oh so fair

Many thought you were an angel

As you lay so sweetly there.


When the Lord said you have punished

Come up Herbert dear

You have won a crown in heaven

By the pain you suffered here.


Heaven retaineth our treasure

Earth the lonely casket keeps

And the sunbeams loves to linger

Where our darling son now sleeps.


When to dear friends he bade farewell

His spirit took its flight

To dwell in that fair land above

When death chill frost can never blight


When with our loved ones we shall meet

When the shining golden shore

We’ll sing the song divinely sweet

Where we meet to part no more.


By His Mother.

At a meeting of the Upper Potomac Fruit Exchange and a committee to formulate grading and packing rules, held in the offices of the Exchange, Keyser, W Va, on Friday, March 27, the following important regulations were adopted. That the Exchange shall cause to be employed by all its members expert graders and packers, and under the supervision of competent and experienced inspectors to put out an especially high grade package of fruit conforming to the best established rules governing such. Standard six basket carriers, four-eight Delaware and ten pound baskets were the style packages adopted for peaches with the following grades, Fancy, Choice, Common and Ripe to be packed to baskets, and only Fancy and Extra Fancy grades to be packed in carriers. All fruit packed in the Extra Fancy and Fancy grades both in carriers and Delaware baskets to be protected with cushion covers. Apples should be packed in standard boxes and barrels and only the fancy grades to be packed in boxes to be either wrapped or unwrapped. Attractive well made baskets and barrels are to be used exclusively and all packages to bear the Exchange and growers label; Lithographed Exchange label to be used on one end of the peach carriers, apple boxes and growers label on the other end. Nothing but sound perfect fruit of the best quality shall be used in the Fancy grades and peaches affected by the yellows or scale to be excluded from all grades. This Exchange is the sole selling agent of the following large commercial orchards and individual growers, located at:

The Twin Mountain Orchard, W P Russell, Twin Mountain, W Va, South Branch Orchard Co, Springfield, W Va, Knobley Mountain Orchard Co, Cameron Orchard, Buckhorn Peach Co, Mineral County Orchard Co, Alkire Orchard Co, O A Hood, Chert Mountain Orchards, John T McDowell, B V Hood, W B Bosely & Bro, J Sloan Arnold, Abrams Ridge Orchard Co, located at Keyser, W Va, a total of about three hundred thousand trees.
