The proKpect is bright for its early aacp

ill efforts to amend1 the BiH of Rights
ln the convention. has demonstrated Uio
.'act that the action of the Committee
of tho Whole gives a measure a prc-stlge

will have a powerful inlluence ln dls

but what an adjournment Will be taken

In the .second half Gtorgetown braced
slightly, but not enough to affect the
score. Twice V. P. I. was held for downs
in this half when lhe ball was inside of
Georgetown's live-yard line. The effect
of this good work was offset, however/
by failure on the part of Georgetown's
line to protect Edmonston in his attenipts
to punt the ball out of danger.
Once Campbell blocked tlie kick and se?
cured a safety, and the other time Miles
broke through and smothered the kick,
fa'.ling on the ball for a touchdown.
V. P. I-'s last touchdown was made on
beautiful end runs by Wilcox, the backs
interfering for him nicely. He carried tho
ball to Georgetown's eight-yard llne and
McCormlck carried it over.

Hardly does a week pass but that The Cable
Company has a great sale to record from some
well-known institution in the Virginias or Caro
In each case it is clearly shown that the
Cable Pianos are superior in tone, durability and
artistic design to other makes.
Then again, people as well as institutions are
awakening to the many advantages that wait
them in dealing direct with the makers.
Mr. T. H. King, principal of this progressive
Southern School, after investi?ating the many
different makes of pianos on the market, decided
that the Cable Piano embraced every quality
necessary to withstand the hard usages of school
Then again, the irresistible tone quality of
the Cable was a feature not overlooked by Mr.
King and his able corps of teachers.
? ? PR03PECT
Would do well to be governed in the selection of Pianos by the advice and experience of large institutions, making investments
involving large sums of money, and who, at the same time, must have the best instrument to be obtained.

rrieet'h? shirh hnd occurred ab-ive. Wh n
nccosted by the reporter and asked if she
had anytbing to siy in connect.ion with
the arrest o1:1 hdr husband. she replied
impulsively: "Xothing. except that they
have an innooent m-m."
MRS. EDWARDS' STATEMEXT.
Mrs. Edwards' statement was earnest
and straightforward: She told how .Mr
Edwards had workedi off and on at tne
Locomotive Works for yc-f.rs, stating that
hc was still employed there; that ne
lost thc week during which the shooting
occurred, but was at work last we3ic.
Of Mi. O'Brien her liu.bandi hadi the
?highest regard. Never in his life haa he
cskc-d n favor of the forrman which had
not been rendily granted and in fact
he thousht Mr. O'Brien to have baan
one of the best men with whom he haa
ever come in contact. Thc- idea thit he
might have had any personal animosity
against the man she scouted entirely.
But this is not the point. Xot only
does the prisoner deny that he malicious
ly shot Mr. O'Brien. but he denies most
eraphatically that he tired the shot at
all. "He didn't use his rifle at all that
day," said Mrs. Edwards. "At the time
oftho shooting my husband was away
from the house and out of the neigh?
borhood. He was at a horse auction?at
Lasitter's?and he has a number Of
friends who can testify to this fact. He
como home to dlnner about the middle
of the day and then went off agaln.
When. he returned later ln the evening
he brought with him the news that Mr.
O'Brien had been shot, and he expressed
the greatest regret when he learned
from the evening .papers, which were
shortly afterward' brought ln, that the '
report he had heard was correct. Oh,
there is no doubt about it! There is nt
thlnking or supposing in the case.
know (with a strong emphasis on ini
word) that my husband did not kill Mr.
O'Brien, either accidentally or otherwise.
"Yes, we have two" small children.
continued !Mrs. Edwards, in answer to a
query, and with a tremor in her voice
"?A short while ago we lost one of ou
little ones. This new. trouble comint
upon tis at this time has an additiona.
weight and bitternes3," concluded Mrs
Edwards. and there were tears in he;
eyes as she said it.
Then Mrs. Eclwards went on her way.
leaving the reporter profoundly imprcsser.
with the truth of her words. Either sh
has great histrionio ability or she is an
earnest and truthful woman, and ont
has but to hear to believe that the iatter
is the case.
'Tn fhe courso of her remarks, Mrs.
Edwards stated that this was the lirst
trouble in which Mr. Edwards had been
mixed up. Never in his life, she declared.
had he been implicated one way or an?
other in anv criminai occurrence.
OTHER CHARGE NOT BROUGHT.
Xo charge has been made against Ed?
wards of having fired the shot that
struck C. Manly Parker, another Loco?
motive Work's employe, a few minutes
i;efore O'Brien wa.s kilied. Parker is do?
ing well and the ball has been removed
from his head.
Mrs. Edwards last night. rcferring to
the.fact that her husband showing signs
of nervousness when approached by the
oillcers, said he was naturally a very
nervous man and easily excited.
