WAY OF FROM PAGE ONE Book Store in Charles Town dates back about l0 years agO when the Cornell's were residing in Arlington, Va. Mrs. Cornell said she had just about lost interest in life and was wondering in her thoughts trying to determine how and where she could find something that would make her life more meaningful. She said she attended a non- denominational religious meeting in Arlington one evening and it was during and after this meeting that she said she felt as though God had spoken to her and told her what to do. She said she immediately began reading all kinds of religious books and listening to religious records, and life then seemed to take on an entirely new meaning for her. In 1975, Mr. Cornell decided to look around for a place to live outside of the hectic and crowded metropolitan area and they found a farm and nice home near Kearneysville and Mr. Cornell purchased it. About a year later, when Mr. and Mrs. Cornell were driving through Charles Town, Mrs. Cornell saw there was a vacant room in a part of the Van Tol building and she decided this would be just ! thespot for the Christian Book Store, which she had been wanting to open for some time. She said she was able to rent the room and within a short time, had her 10-year dream of operating a Christian hook store become a reality. Mrs. Cornell says she has been well-received by the public in Charles Town and Jefferson County and she hopes her patrons and friends will continue to come and see her at the new location. In addition to the new and larger book store in the new location, Mrs. Cornell said plans are to open an inter- denominational religious room on the second floor of the Cornell building, to be known as the 'Upper Room". It will be available for Bible classes to meet in, and also for Evangelistic meetings or a place where other groups can hold religious meetings. Although Mrs. Cornelrs line of of merchandise is still mainly religious books, magazines, records and tapes as it was in the downtown store, with the ad- ditional space she has expanded the store inventory to provide for a brother, John Y. McDonald, Charles Town, the only sur- viving member of ten children. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions should be made to Zion Episcopal C'hurch or Jef- ferson Memorial Hospital. CYRUS M.

ADVENTURE FROM PAGE ONE female) to be watiing for me at my next stop. I know . they're sent care of general delivery, hundreds of miles ahead of me and I go like hell to get there." Of his three children, Jamie says, "I'm sure they're aware I lead my life from day to day. This is the way they'd want me to do it." Of his future -- or the future of mankind -- he's not so certain. "Mankind is on their pathway to destruction," he states, ob- viously detached from the in- dictment. "Man won't destroy the world, but he'll destroy himself. Only a few lucky ones will survive, and they'll find things different when they can't use paychecks to purchase their food." He describes his encounters with other humans, and the "mess" they leave behind, as the primary hespoilers of his adventures, and cites the good- luck charm shark's tooth around his neck as his link to the past, when things were "dif- ferent --and probably better." Like his hero Amelia Earhart, Jamie Besso takes chances "for the fun of it." "Though there's not much chance for men to be heros in today's mechanized world," he admits, "I'm not an adventurer in the heroic snse. I do things only because I haven't done them before."
