In company with Prof. Thos. C. Miller and Prof. and Mrs. Walter M. Duke, the editor of the Register spent a very pleasant day last Saturday in the Bakerton neighborhood. A good country dinner was enjoyed with Mr. and Mrs. Robert M. Duke at their comfortable home near the village. Through the courtesy of Superintendent D. R. Houser and his able assistant, Wm. H. Link, we went through the great lime-burning plant at Bakerton, where thousands of barrels of lime are manufactured every week and shipped to all sections. This plant is growing all the time and now employs 250 hands regularly. The village is improving, and boasts a number of pretty residences with neatly kept surroundings. We also visited the old Virginia ore bank, where for over a hundred years an excellent grade of iron ore has been produced. Our day was a very enjoyable one, and we were pleased to renew acquaintance with a number of old friends in that neighborhood.
