On last Wednesday, June 3rd, R. E. R. Nel
son, Esq., of this city, of the law firm of
Chalkley & Nelson, was married in Washing
ton city, D. C, to Miss Mamie Graham Dyer,
daughter of Professor T. W. Dyer, principal
of the University School of New Orleans, La.
The bride is well-known in social circles in
this city, having been educated at the Mary
Baldwin Seminary. Mr. and Mrs. Nelson ar
rived in Staunton on Thursday afternoon over
the C. & 0., and are boarding with Mr. Nel
son's sister, Mrs. John W. Stout.
Whilst the marriage was a surprise to man y
of Mr. Nelson's friends it was no surprise to
those very near to him, who had long known
of its impending proximity. The young
couple have received the hearty congratula
tion of their many friends.
The Electric Cars.
By the untiring energy of Mr. R. D. Apper
son, the General Manager of the City Street
Car Co., of this city, electric cars are running
smoothly, systematically and swiftly through
nearly all the principal streets in our city.
The work of changing the system from a horse
to an electric system was much greater than
any one not familiar with the subject believ
ed. It has cost thousands of dollars, giving
employment to many men. Mr. Apperson is a
remarkable man. Without having undergone
previous electrical training he studied the sys
tem, caught the idea, learned the essential re
quisites, and at the head of a force of hands
guided and directed the entire work and is to
day rewarded by the results so pleasing to our
people and most gratifying to all who are in
terested either in the road itself or in the good
to be accomplished by its presence in Staun-
It was only last Wednesday that the first
car passed down Main street up Gospel Hill
and out to the terminus at the D. D. & B. Inst.
To-day the cars pass regularly every five
minutes, and as yet no one has been hurt, no
runaways have been caused, and hundreds of
our people have been safely carried from point
to point, and the horses of persons visiting in
I shown no unusual alarm.

Fold tbe pages o'er

Scenes from out our school-life
Are engraven there,—
Pictures bright and glowing,
Tints of setting sun
Softened by the shadows
When the day is done.
Hark, the summer breezes
sing the songs of June;
Well we know their voices,
AU unknown tbe tune.
Blending in tbe cader cc
Minor chords we hear.
As tbe notes of parting
Fall upon the ear.
Past tbe quiet hedgerows
Must our ways divide.
But there's One who walketh
Every path beside
Cheering brave endeavor
If the day be long
Till we join at night-fall
In the triumph song.

Now that the schools have all closed, and
the girls and boys gone to their various
homes, a solemn silence pervades our town
which will no doubt obtain until the summer
visitors begin to pour in, a circus comes, or
the glorious fourth is celebrated in proper
style. As Ford's Lithia Springs open on the
10th we will not have long to wait to witness
an influx of city faces. It is reported that
this comparatively new watering place will
be full to overflowing early this season.
A beautiful wedding was consumated at

vastly surpassed by a georgeous display, both
of taste and flowers, as well as evergreens,
&c-, on this occasion, and a happier looking
couple seldom walk from the solemn chancel
to receive the congratulations of friends, and
then to hurry away on the famous Vestibule
which has taken thousands on their happiest
voyage of life.

The Mt. Zion and Olivet churches occupy
grounds so near each other that we find it
easy to get the names confounded.
The prospect for a delightful Children's Day
at Olivet last Sunday was very bright, and we
regret that we are not able to give even a
meager account of it.
There will be a Children's Day at Green
Valley charch next Sunday, and at Mt. Zion
next Sunday week, and, of conrse, everybody
knows there will be one at Parnassus Sunday,
The children are having the happiest times
In country, in city, and town,
And making the children so happy, will be
A jewel in many a crown.

Indignities to Foreigners in China.
London, June 3.—A special dispatch
from Shanghai says that the German
officers who were sent to drill the
Chinese army have been subjected for
some time to indignities and outrage,
the motive of which was to force them
to resign. Recently two of the Ger
mans were beaten by soldiers, and now
an officer named Krauss has been mur
dered by the body guard of Lin Kun-
Va, the viceroy of Nankin. In conse
quence of these events, it is added, the
entire German squadron in Chinese
waters has been ordered to Nankin, and
it is believed that Germany will with
draw the fifty officers now in the Chi
nese army and insist upon the payment
of the whole term of their contract.

members of the Cabinet did likewise.
