A. Henry Towberman Substituted.
Col. H. J. Williams having withdrawn from
the coalition ticket, the chairmen of the Re
publican and Prohibition parties and the
steering committee nominated A. Henry Tow
berman in his place, and he has accepted.
This was done to placate the colored voters to
whom Col. Williams was extremely objection
able, and without whose votes they would
have no chance of electing their ticket.
Removed to Bridgewater
Messrs. John E. Sanger and Luther Hender
son of this city—the former Dry Goods Mer
chant and the latter Grocery Merchant—have
formed a partnership to merchandise in
Bridgewater, Rockingham county, having pur
chased there the stock of goods of G. W. Thomas
Speech of Cupt. James IJumgartlner, Jv
In speaking of the speech of Capt. James
Bumgardner, jr., at the recent Confederate
Reunion at Lewisburg, W.Va., the Greenbrier
'•Capt. Bumgardner's speech was a well
prepared, eloquent and splendid tribute to the
valor, fortitude and great achievements of the
Confederate soldier, was most impressively
delivered, and in all respects worthy of the
great occasion. Some of the instances of con
spicuous bravery and heroic achievement re
counted by him wrought up his oid comrades
to the highest pitch of enthusiasm."
The Blackford Band.
The Greenbrier Independent of Lewisburg,
W. Va., in speaking of "Blackford's Band"—
the Band at the Western Stale Hospital—says:
"Our people will always feel grateful to the
gentlemen composing the Blackford Concert
Band of Staunton, Va., for their presence here
at our great Rennion last week. They charg
ed ns nothing for the splendid music with
which they enlivened the occasion, only ask
ing that their traveling expenses be paid,
which, of course, wa3 done. They were very
accommodating, and, though receiving noth
ing but kindness and hospitality for their ser
vices, were always ready to respond when
music was called for. During their brief stay
here the hills around the old town echoed al
most constantly with Dixie and other South
ern airs. This band proposes to come to Lewis
burg some time this winter to give a musical
concert. We feel that we can assure them of
another cordial welcome."
The Tribune Pleased.
The Staunton Tribune (colored), having caus
ed the withdrawal of Col. Williams from the
Coalition ticket, for whom A. H. Towberman
has been substituted by the steering commit
tee, is very jubilant, and concludes its article
in reference thereto as follows: —
"The Tribune gives three cheers for Towber
man and Simms."
The colored voters have been placated, but ,
how is it with the white voters? Will they, |
like Punch and Judy, dance as the Tribune j
pulls the strings ?
An Appreciative Subscriber.
The intelligent Judge of Duval county, .
Texas, in his letter enclosing his subscription
to the Spectator, which he has been taking for ■
many years, says:—
"As I have said before, don'tstop my paper.
I can't do without it. My grandfather and my
father took and read it, and we look forward
for it every week as a welcome visitor to our '
Texas home. The "Broken Wing' letters are (
read and re read by us as news from our im- ,
mediate neighborhood. The news, the kind
words, and the bright and witty sayings con
tained therein is a credit to your valuable pa- I
per, and I hope "Broken Wing" will not weary
in well doing."
President of the Bail.
On Saturday afternoon, at Lexington, after
a spirited contest between tbe candidates A. B. '
LaFar of Charleston, S. O, of the Law Depart- .
ment, and E. A. McNeil of Florence, Ala., of ;
the Academic Department, for President of
the final ball, the latter was elected by the
majority of two votes. ,
J- W. Patterson Acquitted.
At the preliminary trial of Daniel Strickler, '
on the charge of passing checks, to which the
name of J. C. Cochran was signed, he testified
that the checks were signed by J. W. Patter
son, whereupon Patterson was arrested, whose
preliminary trial was concluded Saturday
morning when he was acquitted. Some are

Methodist Picnic at Christian's
It was our good fortune to attend a picnic
on the 28th ultimo, at Christian's Creek
school-house. The Calvary and Greenville
. Sunday-school met there, and spent a pleas
ant and enjoyable day. The children enjoy
ed rambling up and down the hanks of the
crystal stream, and also had some little games
of their own.
The young men and maidens spent the day
in amusing games, and it was quite amusing
to see how some of our old married men dew
around the ring. I think it hard for their
sons to beat them, as they run well. At din
ner time, Rev. R. M. Wheeler called the
crowd down on the green, along the banks of
that beautiful, clear stream, and read a pas
sage of scripture, and then Mr. Charle3 Fitch
led in prayer. After singing two beautiful
hymns, a bountiful dinner was served. The
children and all enjoyed a splendid dinner,
and if anybody went away hungry, it was his
or her fault.
All were invited to come and eat. I never
will forget how agreeable the good people of
both Sunday-schools were. They spread
their dinner together, aud, as I truly believe,
it was a grand reunion with the older ones as
well as the children. They showed no signs
of selfishness. This day is another added to
the list of pleasant ones, spent by me in that
Long live the children and the good people
of both Sabbath-schoals. May they have
many such reunions, and may we be there to
meet with them.
It was a beautiful, clear, and pleasant day.
May it be remembered by all.
On the roll of pupils last week at the D. D_
& B. Institution there were the names of 93
deaf-mute and 40 blind pupils, and that is
about the proportion in other similar Institu

the floodson Gazette.
Salem Votes "Dry."
At the local-option election in Salem,
Roanoke county, on Monday of last week,
of the total vote 827, the "Drys." had a ma
jority of 301, the vote being for the Drys 599
and for the Wets 235.
George Caul, colored, aged 20 years, stole a
horse last Sunday from Walter Maupin near
Stuart's Draft, which he sold for $40to an old
colored man near Greenwoo:!, Albemarle Co.
He then went to Alton and bought a ticket to
Waynesboro, but there lie wps recognized by
a colored man and the authorities at Basic
City were appris?d by telegraph, which re
sulted in his arrest. He had on his person S8
and a pistol. He will find a home in the peni
tentiary. It is a dangerous thing to steal a
horse in Augnsta county.
Accidentto Sam'l H. Hensley.
On la3t Saturday, whilst Mr. Samuel H.
Hensley was driving a two-horse team on the
Valley Pike between Willow Spout and Mt.
Sidney, he dismounted, when his horses be
gan to run, when he was knocked down and
two wheels passed over his body—one over his
left shoulder and breast and the other over his
left leg. Though bruised and hurt, no bones
were broken, and his injuries are not serious.
He was attended by Dr. T. M. Parkins. His
horses were stopped, after running a mile, by
Mr. C. Ed. Crawford.
In South Dakota a few weeks since, we see
it stated, the schools were closed because of
intense heat, and two days after, they were
closed because of excessive cold. How does
Hicks or an5 r one else who claims to believe
that the position of the planets control the
weather account for this? There was but a
sligbt change in the position of the planets du
ring that brief time, but a marvelous change
in the weasher.
If this weather there was caused by the
planets, why did we not have that kind of
weather here, as the relation of this place to
the planets was the same it was there ? The
truth is, as Hicks probably knows, the planets
do not control the weather; but he professes to
believe they do, that he may impose on the
public and make money by the publication of
his paper and almanac,
Gn Monday, the Court of Appeals granted

This puts his case alongside that of Mary

question whether they will have new trials
will be determined. Of Marable's guilt there
is no doubt as he ha 3 confessed it.

veteran and a State pensioner, died Friday
night last at the residence of Hiram Kirby in
Mt. Sidney, of disease of the bladder, aged
sixty six years. He leaves a widow with sev

James and Charles Humphreys, who live at
or near Hintou. W. Va The funeral services
were conducted at Mt. Sidney by Rev. L A.

No system about it. When the Shakers
offered some time ago to give away a bottle
of their Digestive Cordial to any one who
might call at their New York office, there was
a great rush am! a great many people thought
they were crazy.
Subsequent events prove it to have been a
very clever advertising transaction, for al
though they gave away thousands of bottles,
it was in the end profitable; nearly every one
that took a free bottle came back for more
and paid for it -with pleasure, saying they had
derived better results from its use than from
any other medicine they had ever used.
There is nothing s>; uniformly successful in
the treatment of stomach troubles as the
Shaker Digestive Cordial, and what is better
than all, it relieves at once.

Big Contract at Hot Springs.
The Lynchburg News says that J. P.

j been awarded the contract for building

| This firm secured the contract ovsr ten
bidders.most of whom were large build

''The Homestead," as it is now, is a
plain straight building, and the con
tract calls for the erection of three ad
ditional structures, which will, when
completed, be a magnificent square of
buildings with a large and spacious
court in the centre.
The cost of the construction of this

Bicycles to 1>? Taxed.
Those who have been looking for
new subjects of taxation have found
one of them in bicycles, which they
maintain should he taxed, as th'-y are
supplanting to some extent the use of
horses, and thereby injuring the busi
ness of livery stables, carriage-manu
facturers, blacksmiths, harness-makers
find saddlers. &c. On this subject the
Lynchburg Neios says: —
"The fact is, there is no more reason
why a bicycle should not become a sub
ject of taxation than a horse or buggy
or carriage, and it will no doubt be so
dealt with in tbe future both in the
State and in cities.
Trial of Dnraat.
The trial of Theodore Durant, on
the charge of having murdered Miss
Blanche Lamont in a church in San
Francisco, has been in progress for
some weeks, and it seems that there is
no chance of his escape from convic
tion of guilt and sentence of death.
His chief hope was based on being able
to prove an alibi, in which he has fail
ed. The evidence is wholly circum
stantial, but it seems to be sufficiently
substantial to establish his guilt be
yond a reasonable doubt. The only
hope of the defense is to create a rea
sonable doubt in the minds of the
jurymen, but at this stage of the trial
it would seem that it will be unable to
do that. There is no doubt that the
person who murdered Miss Blance

"There has been quite a change in tempera

The following are extracts from the finan
cial review of Henry Clews of October sth: —
"While the manufacturing interests may
have run into a temporary over expansion,
yet the reports from trade circles uniformly
represent the retail trade as active and healthy.
If wages have been hastily advanced, the
working millions'have the more money io
spend, which will help to take off any surplus
production and to support the higher range
of prices. The railroad situation is improv
ing and is likely to continue to do so •- U c
crops come forward for export, the movement
of which has thus farjbeen tardy, the gold
situation has entered upon a more assuring
phase. Produce bills are gradually increasing
in volume. Europe is coming round to c
cept the rise in cotton and whea'.,.;;ii.i b'jtii
articles are consequently contributing a larger
supply cf exchange; and some 87,000,(XM of
bankers' bills have to be drawn against the
negotiation of that amount of stock of the
Anaconda mine. Owing to these facts, the
rates of exchange have fallen below the specie
shipping point, and the general conclusion in
Wall Street is that not only shall we export no
more gold ibis year but maj- quite- probably
import it. That contingency must largely
depend upon the course of our securities in
the foreign market.

Upon the whole, therefore, we are far from
taking a gloomy view of the prospects of this
market. There is in the situation material
enough for a further improvement iv values
later on; and the spirit among operators is
such that they would easily respond to any
such tendency. It is not a safe market to be
heavily -'short" upon, and the "bears" cvi
dently appreciate that fact. Moderate do
clines in prices, therefore, will afford promis
ing opportunities for buying for moderate
profits. Quick ia and out transactions will
be the most remunerative for the coming
