ACCIDENT TO MR. D. S. JONES.
The accident w hich occurred to Mr. !
D. S. Jones yesterday a few minutes
after the parade had started is deeply
regretted. A number of people called
at the residen.if Dr. A. C. Jones last
night to inquire after the condition
his bother. Among the callers we
visiting firemen and bandmen. who had j
been apprised of the accident. Mr.
Jones has taken a great interest in
the convention, devoting much or his
time to details and contributing liber?
ally lo make it a success. It was un?
fortunate that he could not witness the]
happy culmination of the parade. Mr.
Jones is painfully bruised about the
body, but has no broken bones, and it [
is thought lie will recover in a few
days. Every member of the Citize
Executive Committee called to SCO 2
Jones last night.
AT THE OPERA HOUSE.
The concert given at Johnson's Opera j
House last night by the Stonewall Bri- '
gadc Band was listened to by an appre?
ciative audience. Every number on
the program provoked an outburst or I
applause, and the audience went into |
ecstacy over the rendition of a descrip?
tive piece entitled the "Nigger in the
Barnyard." which illustrated life in a
Southern country barnyard, where I
ringing of cow bells, the crowing of |
roosters, stamping of horses, songs i
negroes, etc., were heard. Mr. W. I
Sehmid's clarinet solo was so well r<
ceived that he was compelled to rise
several times and acknowledge the |
compliment paid him. The concert
closed ui.h a selection entitled "South-!
ern Melodies" that winds up .vith
"Dixie." The hand will leave for |
Staunton this afternoon.
LOUD IN THEIR PRAISES.
The visitors were loud in their praise
of the citizens' Executive Committee!
Tor the courtesies extended to them, and
Cnterer Loshe also came in for a lib
oral amount or praise. One enthusias?
tic Phoebus llreman remarked between
his vigorous monihfuls: "1 have been
lo lots of conventions, hut this beats
any lay out I have struck yet.
Tin- hoys along the route of the
parade wer.- captivated by the bewi
firing manner in which T. J. Smith,

twirled his baton. If any NewpoSt

Ho could likewise lasso a liurse from the j

had run himself tame. By way of variety,
sometimes the lasso was cast over a big

not seldom happens, he has to pawn his
household gods and sacred images to do so.
