The-commencement exercises of Al
leghany Institute passed off very
pleasantly last night. The buildin
was brilliantly illuminated through
out, and the study hall was crowded
with the friends and patrons of (he
I school and a number of the boys h
their best girls along.
It was exactly 8:30 o'clock when Dr
W. II. Meade, of St. John's Episcopal
church, opened the evening's exercises
by a short prayer. Immediately aftc
this Luden II. Cocke, esq., delivered
au address -of welcome, in wiiicti Ii
gave a brief account of the progress oi
the school since iis establishment
three years ago. Mr. Cocke's discourse
was very interesting and was listened
to with marked attention by the amir
After the address of welcome tin
certificates of distinction, of promo
tiou and of proficiency were delivered
byJProfeesor C. P James, principal
of the institute. The handsome gold
medal offered by Hon. William G.
Brans, mayor of the city, for scholar?
ship, was awarded to Mr. Elmer C.
Moomaw. It was delivered by Rev.
O. F. Flippoin a neat speech in which
he gave Mr. Moomaw some valuable
advice. The medal was a beautiful
little affair with the name of the win?
ner engraved upon it. The medal for
high Standing in the classical depart?
ment was awarded to Mr. Walter
Daniel and was delivered to him by
Captain K. B. Moorman. The medal
was offered by Mr. S. W. Jamison and
is very pretty. It was secured by hard
study and Mr. Daniel is justly proud
of standing at the head of his cla.-s.
After the delivery of the medals
Prof. James made an excellent ad?
dress. Ho thanked the patrons for
their efforts in his behalf and thought
that the session would not have been
as successful if he had not had their
hearty co operation. He also paid a
tribute to Prof. Orren L. Stearnes, the
former principal, and thanked him for
the help that had been rendered by
him. Said the professor: ? And now
to the pupils, young gentlemen. I de?
sire to return my most sincere and
heartfelt thanks to you for the uni
form respect and courtesy thai you
have shown toward the principal and
his assistants as well as to your fellow

rested yesterday for having in his
possession the watch recently stolen
from the residence of Mr. E. W. Daw
son. The negro offered to pawn the
watch at Voight's jewelry store for
$20, and Mr.voight at once recognized
it as Mr. Dawson's property. Officer
Creasy was standing near* the door
and was summoned. The negro denied
any knowledge of the theft and told
the officer he would not go to jail.
The officer put the nippers on him and

said, "Mister, perlieceman, don't

As Rig- as Hen's Eggs
The cool weather of Wednesday is
now accounted for by the fact that
during Jrhe day a very heavy hail
storm swept down the Shenandoah
Valley in the vicinity of Berr-yville.
The hail was as large as hen's eggs
and did great damage to the crops.
Trees were uprooted, fences blown
down and many windows broken.
Fire has been kindled in the engines

Manager Louis Sholz is evidently
e right man in the right place,
judging from the expeditious manner
in which the work has been completed.
It is also understood that he will or?
ganize a Hop Growers1 association tit
an early day. There is an excellent
idea and should meet with the ap?
proval of every farmer in the sur?
rounding counties. There are no
places better adapted to the rais?
ing of hops than Franklin, Floyd,
Montgomery, Roanoke and the
other adjacent counties, and 'ndeed
all over Southwest Virginia the soil is
suited io tie- cultivation of hops, and
then, too. it will be the source of a
big revenue. The market being so
near, the cost of shipment will
lie comparatively small, there
fore an experiment should be made by
the farmers any way. Mr. Sholey has
distributed several bushels of hops
and barley among some of the firs!
class tanners near here and they will
make a thorough test of the mattes as
to the adaptability of the soil.
It Is all Right.

The East End Has .Vice liuiidlut; Lots
The real estate market has been very
active in Roanoke during the past
week. < Iwners, agents and purchasers
were all in a good humor, and every
body is satisfied
The market during the week has
shown largely increased sales in every
department, and James S. Simmons
&? Co., report a number of large sales.
Not ouly is this increase of sales very
noticeable in the transfers of property
for speculative purposes, but also for
permanent investors, men who pro?
pose to build homes for themselves.
As the summer advances much ac?
tivity in building operations is no?
ticed, and many new houses are in
process of construction. This natu?
rally makes the real estate market
much firmer, and agents are corres?
pondingly happy. Simmons cv Co.,
have been doing a rushing business,
one of the best since the linn was esta?
blished. The East End property ;s
changing hands very rapidly, and
many new houses will be erected th.s
Among the prominent additions in
the East End, is that of the Oak Ridge
Land Company. The addition lies
just east of Belmontand south of the
East Side Land Company's property
and adjoins the farms of Messrs.
George Taylor and G. W. Carr.
This offers every inducement as a
place of residence. It is removed from
the business portion of the city and
therefore gives a quiet, suburban
home, while at the same time it is
near the dummy line and therefore
quite convenient to the city.
The land is high and dry and has
just enough ?lope to give it good
drainage. Gas and water mains are
being put in and new streets are being
laid out. Everything is propitious,
and it is destined to take its proper
place in the front rank. It is located
near the furnace, rolling mill, bridge
works and the machine works and
offers, therefore, greater inducements
to the workingman, as it is near his
work. A number of neat cottages are
going up and others have been con?
