Th? DaingsrHeld Will
Perhaps no case ever tried in Alex?
andria has elicited more interest than
the recent oontest over the will of Mrs.
Kliza H Daingerf?eld, the history of
whioh is briefly as follows :
Mr. Henry Daingerf?eld, a wealthy
shipping merchant of Alexandria,
married in the city of Baltimore, abont
fifty years ago, Miss Eliza R. Johnson,
a daughter of Hon. Reverdy Johnson,
the distinguished Maryland lawyer und
statesman.
The Baltimore bride and th? Alex?
andria merchant, after their wedding
tour, resided in the handsome mansion,
probably the finest in Alexandria at
the corner of Colatnbus and Prince
streets. There two boys were born to
them, Henry and Reverdy. Henry
married Miss Virginia Key and Keverdy
married Miss Ettie Nicholson, both of
distinguished Maryland faun In-- The
father, Henry Daingerf?eld, died in
I8fl7. The two sons died in a short
time of each other a few year? ag??>, and
Mrs. Eliza R. Daingerf?eld, their
mother, followed them in 1*<!?8. The
widows, Mrs. Kttie Daingerfiold and
Mrs. Virginia Daingerfield, were both
left with children.
Mrs. Eliza Daingertlehl in her will,
made December 28, 1807 while making
devises to all of her children and grand?
children, devised tho greater portion of
her estate to Mrs. Kflie Daingerfield,
the widow, and the children of Reverdy
Daingerfield, her younger son, assign?
ing as a reason that the others had boen
provided for by their father.
This disposition did not prove satis?
factory to Mrs. Virginia Daingerfield,
widow of Henry, and she brought suit
several months ago, to contest the will.
There was a hung jury, it standing
six to six The case will be tried over
again.
''A word to the wise is sutlicient"
and a word from the wise should be
sufficient, but you ask, who are the
wise? Those who know. The oft re?
peated experience of trustworthy per?
sons may be taken for knowledge. Mr.
W. M. Terry says Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy gives better satisfaction
than any other in the market. He has
been in the drug business at Elkton,
Ky, for twelve years; bas sold hun?
dreds of bottles of this remedy and
nearly all other oough medicines man?
ufactured, which shows conclusively
that Chamberlain's Is the most satis?
factory to the people, and is the best,

A Birmingham club or society com?
posed of ladies and gentlemen has ex
tended an invitation to Booker T
Washington to deliver an address tie
fore it We presume that such a thinfj
never happ?-ned in the South before.
Why should It happen now! The ex
planaMon lies on the surface. Here if
a negro who has character allied to e
remarkable intellect. His character haf
kept him from misdireoting his intel
1er!, and his intellect has led him tt
f irniulate and carry out on a larg<>
scale a design which has for its purpose
not only the uplifting of his own race,
but the betterment of society at large.
His purposes and plans are not at war
with any interest, but belong to those
largo and hopeful schemes intended tc
regenerate and improve thehnman race
without regard to oolor or previous
condition.
Such a man as Booker Washington
is always sure of a respectful and sym
pathetic bearing from all Intelligent
men and women This is because he
not only has something to say, but
something to do, and in his success
the white people of the South have the
keenest interest, for the suocess or fail?
ure of his fax-reaching purpose will
determine the future relations of the
races ?Atlanta Constitution.

Chamberlain's Oolit, Cholera and Di?

New York April IL?A wild-eyed
and unkempt man stood before magis?
trate SimniB in the Centre Street oourt
iu New Y'ork recently and deolared
bis name was Joseph Vidal, and that
he had no home. Nevertheless he whis?
pered confidentially to the magistrate
that he and Miss Gould were to be
married, and while the wedding would
not bo as brilliant as the Vanderbilt
Fair nuptials, it would not fall far in the
rear.
Vidal was arrested for writing lore
letters to Mis? Gould. They are of
the most impassioned character and
arrived with such frequency that the
police were consulted and central office
detectives put on the case. A peculiari?
ty of the letters was that they were
never stamped. For a long time Miss
Gould's secretary paid the necessary i
cents due, but after a while she came
the hand writing and returned to know
them to the postottlce authorities.
At first Vidal's missives had the tone
of a suitor; then they became stronger,
and Anally they were such as an ac?
cepted suitor might write
In court Vidal declared that he loved
Miss Gould, and her alone.
"No man ever loved wot an more,"
he said. "It would be impossible.''
"Do you know Miss Gould?" de?
manded the magistrate.
" No, your honor; but I've seen her
picture. We are not to meet for some
time yet. " This with all seriousness.
"Then you fell in love through the
picture?"
Yes. that's it," replied the prisoner
"She is so beautiful ; ah, so beautiful !"
Vidal placed his hand over his heart
and gave vent to several long sighs.
Vidal further said that,while he never
received a letter from Miss Gould, she
had replied to his through the papers.
