A STORY OF FITZ LEE
Don t Lk? the coon Music as Flay.d by
During the war with Bpola 0 great
dignitary of high ofBoiol rank was for
B time with the corps commanded by
Fitzhugh l^ee He took a BOporiOB m
terest in the troops and did a ooualder
able amount of supervision while there.
When the time came for him to go
away a regiment paraded in his honor
and the band ordered to play I military
farewell. Now the boys in the Span?
ish war had a great fondness for "coon"
?ongs, and the band chosen to make
music for this particular event kuew
them all. As the high diguitary rode
along the lines of troops, bowing and
saluting in stately farewell, the band
struck up the riugiug. roaring melody,
"We Don't Care if You Never Come
Back ; Get a Move on You, Niggah,
General Lee was naturally much an?
noyed by such a violation of military
decorum on the part of his gallant vol?
unteer?. All the West Point dignity
within him NOS up in wrath and he
?wore a great oath with himself that it
?houldn't happen again In the curse
of events laOS was OBBlgoed the duty of
relieving the Spauish commander in
Havana, and taking o ?tro) m the nain,
of the I tilted States. Au imposing
military oeremouy attended the trans?
fer of the sovereignty of the island from
the one power to the other. It was ar?
ranged that when the Spanish flag was
hauled dowu the Captain General should
at once take his departure, go aboard a
?hip and embark for Spain. The United
States was, of course, to give him a
military salute of honor as he departed.
When Fitzhugh Lee rode down to the
plaza to take part in the ceremony he
?*w in the foremost place, with instru?
ments prepared, ready to blare out 00
the instant, that self-same "coon song"
band that had stirred his bile at Tampa.
A West Foint training, long military
experience and four years of civil war
have taught Lee to act promptly iu
emergencies. He dispatched a staff of?
ficer instantly to notify the bandmaster
that if that ceremony was marred by a
"coon song," or anything like one, the
people of Havana w ?uld bo entertained
by seeing a bandmaster shot before sun?
set. It is scarcely necessary to say the
music of the occasion was particularly
stately. It was even solemn.
That is why I say Fitzhugh Lee and
0 firing squad should be sent to Paris
with Eddy. There should be BOOM mil
itary supervision of American mu-i ? In
foreign lantls. ? San Francisco Call.

TU? Revivalist a Richmond Engagement
Braucht to a Budden Close.
Rev. Dr. H 11 Wharton, the Balti?
more evangelist, opened a meeting at
the Auditorium last Monday night a
week ago, which, it was expected, would
continue through the week, if not
longer, but closed very unexpectedly
Wednesday night. This fact has given
rise to a good deal of gossip of a more
or less interesting character.
Dr. Wharton, next to Moody, has con?
ducted by far tho most successful revi?
val? held in Richmond in the last ten
or fifteen years. He has held meetings
in several churches there, and always
hod overflowing congregations. But
the Auditorium meetings fell flat. There
wa? a oold, chilling rain Monday night,
and few people were out. Tuesday aud
Wednesday nights the congregations
were rather larger, but still ?mall, and
Dr. Wharton decided to close.
He went there under an arrangement
with the Traction Company, which
owns the Auditorium, but without the
invitation or sanction of the city pas?
tors. So far as known none of these
attended any of the services, and the
circumstances under which the meet
ings were to be held was the subject of
on interesting discussion in a meeting
of the Baptist Ministers' Conference.
No action was taken.
Dr. Wharton said perhaps the Trac?
tion people had the nickels in mind
more than souls in arranging for him
to come there, but that ho camo there
to preach the g.ospel aud save souls.
The evangelist brought several workers
with him, and was arranging for Sam
Jones and Tom Dixon to assist him.
KoI'Drd the tirave.
A startling incident, of which Mr.
John Oliver, of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated as follows : "I
wo? in a most dreadful condition. My
skin was almost yellow, eyes sunken,
tongue coated, pain continually in back
and side?, no appetite?gradually grow?
ing weaker day by day. Three physi?
cians had given me up. Fortunately,
a friend advised trying ' Electric Bit?
ten ; ' and to my great joy and sur?
prise the first bottle made a decided
improvement. I continued their use
for three weeks, and am now a well
man. I know they saved my life, and
robbed the grave of another victim."

AN IMMENSE STOCK.
The great-advance in all cotton goods hsi caused us to buy eatly
the largest stock of goods we have ever had. This was nrrjossory
to enable us to sell them to you at old prices. This has h, ei ton
sharpest advance I have seen in L?O years, txcept in two iustanci
How much bisher, or how Ion?? the advance will bold, no one can
tell. So to bo on the safe side I would advise you to buy < :cly what
We can still sell yon a very pood Brown Cotton at 3o., a better one
at 4c, and the best at 5a. My stock has been well bought, at.d
goods well bought are half Bold.was wt 11 said. We honestly believe
we own today one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest stock of poods
in any retail store in Virginia. No matter what you want in
DRY GOODS OR NOTIONS
try Baker before yon buy, and if we fail to sell you we will make
?he other follow sell yon cheap.
