Death of Mr. Ward.?Mr. Wm. H.
War 1, who wns paralyzed at his room
ia the Braddock House a few days ago,
died yesterday. Ttie deceased was in
the 7Gth year of bis age. He was born
in Canada near Niagara Falls, but be
came a resilient of the United Suites at
un early age, and was eugased in the
iron business in various cities. About
twenty years ago he came to this city
aud entered into business relations
with the late firm of Jamiesou & Col
1 us, founder and machinists, at tho
c irner ol Wllkes and Royal streets.
He ivas then endeavoring to introduce
! patent brake for railroad trains, but
; ? VVestinghouso air brake appearing
.. iut that time, his appliance, though
used on some roads aud pronounced
i ractical, never got into general use.
- .. a ;.:.c;:f;v ^tentee, he
i aving conceived many labor-saving
devices, which, however, fuiied to at?
tract much atteulion. He leftAlexan
dria after a few years, and reappeared
t ,vo or three years ago, but he bad
c :ased to be engaged in active business.
A few months ago be secured a place
in the Agricultural Department iu
Washington, a position be held up to
the time of his death. Mr. Ward had
be in a familiar figure about the Capitol
in Washington wheu Congress was iu
,-;,<;i, for many years. He had per
i;, >:d a machine for tho manufacture
oi bu.'ets shortly before the war, and
duriug UT.e four years' conflict the gov?
ernment m.^de use of his device. He
instituted a cLM*0 lor the use of his pat?
ent, but though committees several
times reported it favorably, it never
was allowed by Congress. For twenty
ars the old gentleman, liko Miss
Flite in Bleak House, appeared at each
succeeding session, but matter of more
national importance always kont bis
claim from being brought before either
branch of the national legislature. Tho
deceased was a man of commanding ap
poarance, and was of a courteous elis
position. He bad a florid countenance,
sharp penetrating eyes, aud his snowy
locks and beard struck oue with the j
scriptural comparison of the* capillary
appendages of tbe aged to the almond
tree nourishing. He had traveled con?
siderably in his time, was a mau of
some intelligence and was a close read?
er of the Bible. From bis researches
he became convinced mauy years ago
thai St. Paul visited Cornwall, Eng.,
on one of his missionary tours, and be
delivered addresses before religious
bodies iu endeavors to establish his as?
sertion. His remains will be taken i o
Auburn, N. Y., for interment.
Seriously Burned.?Miss Minnie
Brencle, daughter of Mr. Henry Bren
gle. was the victim of a terrible acci?
dent shortly before two o'clock this
afternoon. She was in her room ar her
father's residence, on King street, and
was engaged at her toilet, having a
lighted gasoline lamp at her right hand
with which she was berating a curliug
iron. While thus engaged she suddenly
discovered ber sleeve was burning, and
before she could gather her thoughts
the blaze had run up her arm and
entirely around the upper portiou of
her body. Tho terrified young w oman
screamed and ran toward Mrs. Pever
ill'a (her half sister) room, but that lady
was too much alarmed to render her
assistance. Mr. Brengle, who had
beard his daughter's screams, ran to
her assistance, and seeing her sad
plight, grasped her aud endeavored to
smother the flames. In doing so she
fell from his arms at tbe head of the
(light of stairs on the secoud floor and
rolled to the passageway below. Her
father quickly had hold of her again,
and finally succeeded, with tbe help of
o hers attracted by her shrieks, in ex?
tinguishing her burning clothing. 3Ir.
lirengle/a hands were considerably
burned by this time. The young woman
was removed to her room and I >r. Jones
summoned. She was found to be se
riously burned on her arms and on the
tipper portiou of her body. It is sup
|i ?se 1 that Miss Brengle's dress sleeve
tccidentally came in contact with tbe
blazing lamp while she was engaged in
arranging her hair.
Lower Cedar Point Light.?The
present sundry civil bill contains no
appropriation for tbe construction of a
light to replace that destroyed by fire
at 1 ower Cedar Point, on the l'otom ic,
last winter, ami some inconvenience
will have to be experienced by mari
ners until Congress sees fit to graut
mouey for this much-needed station.
The Secretary of the Treasury sent sev
< nil letters to the House of Representa?
tives presenting the great necessity of j
allow ing an appropriation for restoring
tbe light. The Senate bill left in a sum
of $75,000, but when the bill got to con?
ference the House members succeeded
in having it stricken out. This leave.-;
the lighthouse board without a cent to
begin the work with.although plans had
been drawu aud arrangements made
for the prompt expenditure of the
uoney. There is now a temporary
Ughl displayed on the site of tbe old
one, but it is a poor substitute for the
structure which marked a very dan?
gerous point iu tho Potomac.

Howson for being drunk and disorderly,

A Descent on Gamblers.?For
some lime past some people w ho have
nothing olso to do have been forcing
their way into the Pioneer Mills and
indulging in quiet games of draw poker.
The sash from windows have in some
oises been broken out and other acts of
vandalism committed. Yesterday Mr.
Charles Kidwcll, employed by the Vul?
canizing Works, made a descent on a
party who were then engaged in their
favorite pastiinio. The money was
gathered up in the' twinkliug of an eye
and tbe players scampered through
windows into the street. The police
have been notified and they will keep
a sharp lookout in that neighborhood
iu tho future.

Another word to the good peoplo of Alex?
andria. To those who were wise enough to give
us a call and to inspect the offerings we have
been making for the last few weeks, it is need?
less for us to say anything in the way of ex?
planation of what we are doing. Our bar?
gains are more convincing than columns of
argument and our prices more eloquent than
more words. But to those who are shy aud
backward, and who are s;...pinions ol "sales"
gotten up now and then by merchants to boom
business, we desire to say a few woids tO-d?y.
In the first pl?ee we want you to under?
stand that this is no "fake" selling out. It
isn't done for pleasure and it isn't done for
profit. Stern necessity caused the institution
of this sale. Stern necessity Used tho prices.
Stern necessity again demands a cut in prices
regardless of the value, cost and desirability
of the Hoods, Wares and Merchandise wo have
still on baud
The law says that this estate must bo speed?
ily wound up, and wind up is tho word even
;f we have to practically give the goods awa*".
Now, if wo have convinced you that this s
a bona fido clearing out, and have gained
enough of your confidence to have you bo
lievo that our object is to get rid of tbe goods
wo have at any prices, wo will, for the pur?
pose of convincing those who have not visited
our MAMMOTH SLAUGHTER SALE that

some prices we have made on popular and de?
sirable goods. Figures, we know, dou't Ho, so
we will let them speak for themselves. Look
over our list carefully, and if you see anything
you want, cut out the advertisement, and put
you linger on the article and eoruo to us, and
you will get the stuff exactly 113 advertised.
To our numerous friends who have been in to
see us so often lately, wo desire to say only
that, this picuicciu't last much longer. Make
