Insolence.
The following we clip from this
week's issue cf Toni's Weekly writ?
ten by "Wise,"1 otherwise Martin
Colaw, of Crabbottom:
"TVip Crabbottom correspondent
'Wise,' has severed his commotion
with the Highland Recorder lie
cause of its down-right partisan
p'agairism, etc. He will continue
te serve his many friends through
the columns of the Weekly.^
The above shows the insolence of
the writer, "Wise,'1 and while we
should treat the matter with silent
contempt, we can't refrain from
saying that such statements ill be?
come one who has been guilty of
wc rse faults than plagairism. We
thought his recent experience in an
adjoining county had taught him
to have more regard for truthful
statements. We will say that
4 Wise" came to us as a correspond?
ent, unsought and unasked, nnd we
suppose bec mee we refused to a 1
low our columns for him to e; press
his criticisms on his n ighbors is
why we are accused of "dov. n-ight
partisan plagairism."
Secretary Lamont, it is mtv. has
no intention of remaining in the
cabinet, tte only accepted a port?
folio as a favor to his friend, the
President, and with the express un?
derstanding that he would resign
as soon as certain work was done in
which he was iu take part. Vx
actly what that work is only. Dan
and Mr, Cleveland, know; but tkere
are good reasons to suppose that t
relates largely to the federal ap?
pointments in New York, and as
soon as all of those appointments?
the prominent one: ? .re made, the
im| ression is that S crttary Lamont
will resign and resume his connec?
tion with the Whitney street rail?
way syndicate, where his salary was
more than three times what he
now receives. Secretary Lamont
declines, to discuss the probability
of his early resignation, dismiss?
ing inquiries with the statement
that he has no present intention of
resignin?.-. But there are rt' er
things which point to the probabil?
ity of doing so. The Secretary of
war has less patronage than any
other member of the cabinet, but
Secretary Lamont has not availed
hims-If even of the little at, his dis?
posal, and many believe that it is
because he wishes his successor to
have the choosing of the officials.
Another thing which lias leen
commented upon is that the La?
monts have not given up their res?
idence in New York city, and when
Mrs. Lamont was in washington a
short time ago she spoke very in?
definitely about her coming there
to live again; and only last week
she accepted the presidency of a
New York social organization,
which would not have been ten?
dered to her had it been supposed
that she li id any immediate inten?
tion of moving her residence to
Washington.
Virginia Appointments.
Alexander McDonald, of Lynch?
burg, Ya., has been appointed by
the Pre: ident as minister to Persia.
Mr. McDonald is an able journalist
h iving been for a number of years
editor of the Lynchburg Virginian

General Skeen Dead.
Covington, Va., May 0,?Gener?
al William Skeen died this morn?
ing at the residence of his son-in
law, GK T. McClintic, of this city,
in his seventy-fifth year. He was
a leading lawyer of this section and
for many years Commonwealth's
attorney of Pocahontas county, and
also of Alleghahy county. He has
been ill for sometime but his death
was immediately cansed from the
effects of a trip to Pocahontas Co.,
W. V'a.?Richmond Weekly Times.
General Skein was well known
in thia county and was as a lawyer
and otherwise connected with it for
a mini ber of years after the war.
For many years prior to and c'uing
the war he made Pocahontas coun?
ty his home and it was during that
period that he first became known
to our people. The County Court
record book shows that during the
winter of 1851-2 he came from Po?
cahontas county at each term of
the Court and^entered the proceed?
ings for Mr. Adam Stephenson, who
was Clerk, but who was absent from
the county attending the Constitu?
tional convention. His home be?
ing burned and his property other?
wise damaged by Federal soldiers
during the war, he moved to Cov?
ington, Va., where he has since
made his home. During all the
years that have intervened since,
the General cast his lot with the
peopje of Virginia. He has never
forgotten his former West Virginia
home, and it was while visiting the
scenes of other years that he con?
tracted a severe cold resulting in
his death.
Fleas. Flies, Sand. Bananas &c.
The friends and relatives of one
armed John Bini, an ex-Confeder?
ate soldier, not having heard from
him for several months, it was fear?
ed by some that he had gone to join
the silent majority. But he turns
up in Central America, having left
Dakota some months ago. He
writes to a friend, thus:
"I am 1050 miles south of New
Orleans in a dense forest of woods
among tigers, baboons and monk?
eys, fleas and sand-fiies "till you
can't rest." The climate is fine?
not as hot as j o i think. The ther?
mometer ran up to 'JO and
down to 02 since I came here. Veg?
etation grows fine here the year
around. The way they plant corn
here is af ter this manner: They
get upon a big log when all is cut
down and burned up and sow the
corn broadcast as far as they can
reach, then get on another log and
continue the operation till all is
sowed or planted.
I have bought 43 acres of land I
and paid for it. I cleared ll acres j
for bananas?will clear one acre in
wvich to plant peaches, pear, np
ricots. jiliinis, &c. It cost nie $250
to clear 41 acres, and it is not clean
then. It is simply cutdown, brush
trees and all, flat to the ground to
lay and dry for four or six weeks,
then set fire to it and away it goes,
and they call it cleared. I have
seen many small sea-going vessels
which navigate the shores of the
Carribean Sea with safety. Every?
thing vegetable is green the year
round. Tomatoes, beaus and fruits
grow all the time. I have had
excellent health here. Have seen
only four white women on the con?
cession. I expect to go to New
Orleans soon to get my fruit trees,
etc. Mv compliments to everv

The Kinetograph.
Thomas. A. Edison has finally
announced the nature of his indi?
vidual exhibit at the World's Fair.
It is the Kinetograph, the last of a
series of wonderful inventions, dis?
played in connection with the most
versatile group of photogrphs ever
brought together. It is to the eye
what the phonograph is to the ear.
a mechanical retina, which stores
away a living picture to be pro?
duced in all its actions; every move?
ment faithfully shown at any time
and in any place. With the Kine?
tograph it is possible to show in
Chicago ChaunceyDepew deliver?
ing a speech aboard the flagship
Jhicgo, in New York harbor? not
a photograph of any rested action
but tho living man; his every gest?
ure, the play of expression on his
face, the movements on his lips.
It will transmit and reproduce mo?
tion of anv kind for any distance.?
Ex. * .
-a-tv-.^-?
The following compsition was
written by a ten-year-old nephew
of Josh Billings, when the teacher
gave him "Dogs and Cats" for a
subject: "'Dogs and kats allwavs
fite each lither when tha git a
chance, but a dog ain't no mate l?Or

The Meanest ol'ThieveH.
.John Hamper, twelve years of
agc, ;;f Brooklyn, N, V.,is the cham?
pion thief. A short time ago his
hither died. Then, it is alleged,
while the bo.ly was still warm tho
boy took oil" his dead father's over?
coat and went to a pawn shop.
Here he pledged the things for a
few cents and bought cigarettes.
When he got home his father's
body had been pbt on ice. It is
added that the boy stole the balam e
of the clothes his father wore be?
fore his death and pawn d them b < .
Afterward he tried to take away the
pull that covered the collin.
Clerk of Highland County.
Mr. J. C. Matheny, who has been
the popular .and efficient clerk for
the courts iu Highland county for
many years, his first annuncement
as a candidate for that office having
been published in this paper in May
1864, when he was first elected, and
has been since then re-elected for
each subsepuent term, is again a
candidate for re-election, and, as in
the case of the popular clerk for the
county Court of this county, "it
goes without saying, "as the French
say, that he will be re-elected nem

The Cow's Cud.
There is no such thing as a cow's
cud in the sense in which this term
is often used as a part of the animal
that may be lost. The cud is that
of the food which is brought up
from the first stomach and chewed
over again, after which it is again
swallowed and goes directly into
the third stomach, where it is mac?
erated in the maniples and then
passes to the fourth stomach and
finally digsted. When a cow is
suffering from indigestion she may
be unable, by reason of the disorder
of the stomach, to bring up the
food or cud, and this makes her sick,
and if it is continued, she stops eat?
ing. The best thing to do in snA\
a case is to give a pint of raw Un?
see oil, and repeat it if necessary,
when the trouble is generally re?
moved. The cud is formed by the
compression of a portion of the
food in a small chanel between the
first snd second stomachs and con?
nected with the gullet. It is about.
five inches in length and two in
width.-New York Times.

Chicago, III., April 29. -The Her?
ald this morning has the following.
An unsuccessful attempt to steal
Christopher Columbus' ashes was
made last evening. The glass con?
taining them was broken, and the
priceless remains lifted from their
resting place by an unknown thief
whose presence desecrated the sa?
cred Covent La Rapid, Jackson
Park. The ashes were carried from
a dark corner to the light of a win?
dow and carefully examined, that
no mistake might be made, but the
delay for examination proved disas
taous to the purpose of vandal and
saved to the Exposition and poster?
ity all that is left of the mortal re?
mains of the great explorer and
benefactor.?State
Corn Is King.
More than four per cent of the
land surface of the country is devo?
ted to the cultivation of corn, and
the average acreage during the ten
years 1881 to 1800 was nearly 72,
000,000 acres each year. It is the
most widely distributed crop, and
grown to some extent in every state
and territory of the country, and a
prominent crop everywhere almost
except in the higher elevaton of the
mo mtain regions. The average pro?
duction during the ten years ending
1890 was 1,080,000,000 busels. but
with the acreage now devoted to its
culture a thoroughly favorable sea?
son insures a crop of more than 2,
000,000.000, bushels, the largest ce?
real crop grown in any country.
While corn is grown in all sections
of the country, it is geueraly for
home use, the corn of commerce
practically all coming from the sev?
en so-called surplus states inthe
Ohio and Missouri valleys, lt is
grown almost enirely far domestic
use, and taking the average of more
than twenty years the annual ex?
portation amounts to less than fo ur
per cent of the crop
