Capt. Wm. R. Lyman, of New Orleans, and

i reunion of the survivors of tbe Captain's Old

;:venteen years ago at McDowell the Captain,
waa tendered a reception by the members, and
.. [denic and tournament were given in bis
\(.nor, and a most delightful time was exper
ienced by all present. It will be apparent, if
a reunion is held that many who escaped
death on the battlefield, have met it since.
But there are a number still living to greet
their old Commander, Lyman was a
student at the University at the beginning of
the war, he was sent to drill soldiers, and
afterward raised this Highland company, and
vi as enlisted in the 31st Va. regiment, was in
:be battle at McDowell, and with Stonewall

c' ci more devoted to their commander than
his. ' _
Hon. H. D. Flood spoke on last Thursday
night in this city at Armory Hail in the Odd
Fellam building, under the auspices of the
Pryan & Sewall Club. The speaking was not
advertised until in the afternoon, and ap
pointments of the hall were poor as there
were only a few chairs in the room and the
audience was obliged to stand. This, of
.Miirse, placed the speaker and the audience
a, well at great disadvantage. Notwithstand
lag the meagerness of the notice and the ac
tommodations, about 250 persons heard him
Ihough many more came but went away, be
cause they had no seats. There was a mis
understanding about who was to look after
a id arrange the proceedings, at this meet
ing which should never occur again, and to
which no audience or speaker should be again
subjected. The wonder is that Mr. Flood
made so good a speceh under such trying cir
cumstances. Before the speaking began the
Bryan & Sewall Club was organized, with
Opt. John N. Opie as Chairman, and J. M.
1 trry and S. D. Timberlake as Vice-Presi

Chtirchville, Sept. 7th.
As summer draws to a close a season of un
usual happiness and pleasure to the young
people of our village is nearing its end. The
I young men and women of this community
never fail to thoroughly enjoy themselves
during the summer months, but the season
ju3t past has been an exceptionally pleasant
one. The great number of croquet, tennis
and lawn parties, riding and driving excur
sions into the mountains, hay-rides, hunting
and fishing parties, &c, have, during the past
three months, afforded our boys and girls the
most enjoyable recreation. And now that
approaching fall necessitates the disbanding
of this genial company of pleasure seeking
youngsters, it is with sincere regret that our
people bid many of them good bye, as they
return to their duties at college, and to their
homes in the cities of this and other States.
And it is with pangs of regret on their part
that they are forced to part company with
us, for no person has ever been known to
visit this little town and enjoy the hospitali
ty of its generous people, who did not look
forward with pleasant anticipations to a
Ime when he would return,

I have concluded to write you a few lines
from this pace and I must congratulate you
upon the stand you have taken in regard to
own finances of the country. Bryan & Sewall
will get a good vote in this part of the coun
ty, and I hope you may with tbe aid of your

are doing good work for the benefit of the
laboring man and for the poor class of people
that has been kept down by Trusts, Monopo

We have a good deal of sickness in own
community at this time and we have had two
deaths here. Mr. John W. Fauber died on
the 29th day of August, 189G, aged about 04
years. (Mr. Fauber's, death is notice else
where.) On the morning of the 31st ultimo,
Mr. Richard C. Taylor died in the 75th year
of his age. He has been a great sufferer from
cancer for a long time. He is a good neigh
bor, and was liked by all who know him.
He was a member of Mt. Carmel Church, and
in his last days his two daughters Miss Jinuie
and Miss Nannie rendered him all the comfort
that could be done for by tbeir untiring ef
fort to make him comfortable, they saw that
he wanted for nothing. He was buried on

mc is a State Asylum.—Dr. Syiyester,
•intendent of the Kings County Hospital
ie insane, has hit upon the idea of form
., „n orchestra out of the employees and
inmates of the institution. For some time
the superintendent has been trying to get up
some sort of a diversion lor the patients, and
he was interested to learn, several weeks ago,
that not a few of his patients were both fond
of music and capable of its production. He
called for recruits from the army of employ
ees and patients, and soon had a band of
sufficient number and unexpectedly good
quality. Some of the patients lend them
selves readily to the new diversion. A younc
man twenty-eight years old, who suffers from 1
an acute form of delusions, has become an 1
accomplished artist on the tuba. An orches
tra of eighteen pieces will soon be organized,
and the players will begin regular rehearsals
for the winter entertainments. Thus will the
monotonous routine of the long winter
months be materially relieved by this new
departure. At short intervals Dr. Sylvester
plans to give dances, concerts, and other en
tertainments, in which the musical feature
will be given prominence.—Med. News, N. Y.
The above article would seem to indicate
that Dr. Sylvester has been the first to hit
upon the idea of introducing music into hos
pitals for the insane in this country. But in
Virginia this may now be termed an old fea
ture, as Dr. Ben Blackford, Superintendent
of the W. S. Hospital, in this city, about five
years ago began its introduction, and an ele
gant band of musicians play upon the
grounds daily, and concerts and dancing are
of frequent occurrence. Dr. Blackford we
believe was the first to introduce this feature
in the United States, certainly the first in
Virginia, and we learn that the pleasure im
parted to the unfortunate people under his
control has been so greatly enhanced, that he
has constantly elevated the character and
class of music, until now he has a splendid
orchestra of about 25 musicians.
On last Wednesday "Show day" George

I On last Saturday''morning an excursion

when it arrived at Staunton, and a few
boarded it here. The excursion was run in
the interest of the McKinley campaign, and
the principal object was to carry persons .to
Clifton Forge to hear Mr. M. E.. Ingalls
speak. The return train that night brought
back, it is said, but eighteen persons. So that
it appears that Mr. Ingalls and Mr Joseph
Bryan of the Richmond "Times," who was
on the stand with Mr. Ingalls, on that otca
sion, were not drawing cards.

The Staunton Vindicator was sold on Sat
urday to R. SV Turk, owner and editor of the
Spectator, who will consolidate the two pa
pers. The Spectator-Vindicator will continue
to advocate the cause of Bryan and silver.—
The consolidation of two fine old newspapers
like tbe Staunton Spectator and Vindicator
under the editorial management of Col. R. S.
Turk and business management of Mr. Arthur
S. Morton is an important event in local
journalism in Virginia. It will give Staun
ton and Augusta county one of the strongest
newspaper establishments in the Common
wealth and the democratic party an influen
tial and widely-read organ. There is cause
for congratulation all around. A feature of
the change, which every newspaper man in
Virginia will regret, is the retirement of Mr.
Harry Tinsley, the veteran editor of the Vin
dicator during the past twenty-five years. Ac
complished in all the graces of his profession,
with a heart filled to the brim with the milk
of human kindness, he had a friend in every
man who read his paper or whose foot ever
crossed the threshold of his editorial work
shop. It is to be hoped that with restored
health he may ere long resume a work for
which he is so rarely fitted .—Rockingham I
Newspaper Consolidation. j
The Vindicator was disposed of at judicial j
sale, last Saturday, as a result of the death of I
W. H. H. Lynn and the settlement of bis 1
estate. The plant was purchased by Col. R. I
S. Turk,'of the Spectator, and will be consoli-1
dated with that paper. A. S. Morton will re- j
main with the establishment as business I
manager, with R. S. Turk as proprietor ajd I
H. C. Tinsley, who has ably conducted the J
editorial department of the Vindicator for 25
--years, and whose health has been precarious
for some time, will retire from editorial work.
We regret the cause and the fact of Mr. Tins
ley's cessation from a work for which be is so
well equipped, and in which he achieved
eminent distinction. He is one of the mosf
attractive and forcible writers in the Statp
and will be missed by his party and the pub
lic generally. He numbers his friends a'nong
political opponents, as well as those in accord
with his views.
Col. Turk has shown unusual aptitude in
in the newspaper field, for one so new in the
service, and has secured a valuable plant in
the combination of the Spectator and Vindi
cator under one management and ownership.
— Yost's Weekly, Sept. 3rd.
The Staunton Vindicator has been sold to
the Staunton Spectator. We much regret the
necessary temporary retirement of Editor
Tinsley on account of his poor health. His
eminent ability as a journalist has long given
him foremost rank in the profession and his
valuable services in the cause of Democracy
can illy be spared at this time. We are glad I
to know, however, that Mr. Tinsley's mantle I
has fallen on worthy shoulders. In Col. Turk
the profession has a strong, forceful and cap
able writer, who, in the brief time he has
conducted the "Spectator," has won back for
it, in a large degree, its old time force and
influence.— Waynesboro Herald.
The Staunton Vindicator was sold on Sat
urday and was bought by R. S. Turk, the
proprietor of the Staunton Spectator, who will
consolidate the two papers under the name of
the Staunton Spectator and Vindicator. Mr.
Morton, the business manager of the Vindi
cator, assumes the same position with the
consolidated paper, and Mr. Tinsley, the editor
of the Vindicator, who for sometime has been
in bad health, retires from newspaper work,
it is to be hoped temporarily. Mr. Turk will
edit the Spectator-Vindicator. To him and
his paper the Comity News extends best wishes.
— Rockbridge News.
The esteemed old 3taunton Vindicator, for
many years a welcome visitor to this office,
has been purchased by Maj. R.*S. Turk, own
er and editor of the SpectatoEj of that city,
and the two papers have been consolidated.
Maj. Turk, who is well and favorably known
here as a former student of Roanoka College,
will continue the editorial management of the
combined papers, and those who have read
the Spectator recently will readily agree that
he wilf do it ably and creditably. We have
seen no more virgorous champion of the cause
of the people than the Spectator, and it prom
ises to continue in that line. Success to it.—
For the Spectatoe:
For the second time during the incumbency
iof Postmaster Wright at this place wicked
burglars have sought in vain to blow open the
| big iron' safe which is supposed to contain
| Uncle Sam's postal wealth at this office. But
in both instances they were so poorly reward
|ed for their risky efforts that they left the
jobs half-finished and retired in evident dis
gust from their very manner of going.
Twenty-seven cents was the result of their
last labor. When Dep't P. W. Hanger open
ed the office on last Thursday morning his
entrance was almost obstructed by the debris
of the broken safe, table, chairs,*.:. Thtse
things were scattered in eyery direction, show
ing at a glance just what had happened. A
14 by 20 hole in the floor showed how it was
made possible. A hole was dn lied in the out
er safe door, powder injected, and the explo
sion which followed more than met their ex
pectations. It almost tore the house down;
and, as too much powder had made too much
noise the, intruders hastily rilled the stamp
drawer of 27 cts, gathered up their tools and
left without trying to open the inner door,
which thereby saved the contents.
Without any reflection upon the honest and
well meaning knights of the road we are hav
ing more than our share of tramps of late,
and, whilst they may not be responsible for
the many burglaries which are effected right
ly, appearances are against them.
The consolidation of the Vindicator .with
the Spectator is received here by tbe friends of
both papers with great satisfaction. Each
paper has had its friends, but they feel that
with the combined facilitief of the two papers
into one they are sure to get a newspaper
meeting every requirement.
A Chautauqua for Waynesboro is the latest
project. A meeting was held in tbe Presby

establishment of such an institution. '
By reason of our unsurpassed natural ad

scenery, pure mountain air,—as well as our
easy access to all parts of the country, we are
pre eminently prepared for such an institu
tion, and the scheme seems likely to succeed.

GRAIN TRADE AND CROPS.
Tbe Cincinnati Price-Current of last
Little of rain has fallen in the' cen
tral and western regions the past week,
and conditions have been favorable
for the crops. Some frosts have oc
curred in the Northwest, but without
serious results. The dry weather has
favored the curing process for corn,
and the bulk of this crop is now in a
secure condition. There is no essential
change in indications as to yield,
which may be regarded as pointing to
a total of about 2,275.000,000 bushels,
'or 125,000,000 in excess of last year.
A careful revision of the evidences
of yield of corn by States results in an
indication of a shortage of about 180,
--000,000 bushels in the total for South
ern States, compared with the large
production estimated for that portion
of the crop last year. For all other
States there is an increase of 305,000,
--000 bushels—making the total crop
appear to be about 125,000,000 bushels
larger than last year.
With such an indicated reduction in
supplies of corn in the South it is
reasonable to expect that there will be
something of demand from that direc
tion, which should be helpful of the
general markets for this grain.
There is a fair volume of wheat
moving, but there continues to be
reflected a large proportion of inferior
quality. It may be observed that
various writers lay much stress on the
fact that the milling proportion of the
crop is so much smaller than usual
that there will be left but little of ex
portable wheat from the crop. Past
experiences suggest that the low qual
ity is not a helpful factor as to prices.
If every bushel of the crop were of
merchantable quality it is likely the
average price would be fully as high
as the average price of the merchant
able portion of the crop will be.
There has been quite a rush of oats
to market, and much of the offerings
has been so trashy as to bring but lit
tle return to shippers. The market
will likely shape better when the excess
of such inferior stock has been cleaied
The Chicago grain markets close
lower than a week ago all round. With
corn selling at 36 cents per 100 lbs, how
can it be regarded that wheat is parti
cularly cheap at 92 cents per 100 lbs
one lb of wheat representing more
than %\ lbs of corn?
September wheat at Chicago closed
2c below the highest point of the week,
le above the lowest point, and \e
lower than a week ago.
Corn at Chicago tor September
dosed fc below the highest point of the

Wheat receipts at primary markets
were 4,654,000 bushels for the week,!
against 4,415,000 the preceding week,'
and 4,365,000 last year.
Corn receipts were 2,933,000 bushel*;, •

According to a celebrated anatomist there I
are upwards of 5,000,000 little glands in the
human stomach. These glands pour out the
digestive juices which dissolve or digest the
food. Indigestion is want of juice, weakness
of glands, need of help to restore the health
of these organs. The best and most natural
help is that given by Shaker Digestive Cordial.
Natural, because it supplies tbe materials
needed by the glands to prepare the digestive
juices. Because it strengthens and invigorates
the glands and the stomach, until they are
able to do their work alone. Shaker Digestive
Cordial cures indigestion certainly and per
manently. It does so by natural means, and
therein lies the secret of its wonderful and un
varied success. •
