This is one of the weeks when
the newspaper man would appre?
ciate the help of county correspond?
ents. The snow, a joy to some and
adding hardships to others, seems
to have cut off the news supply,
driven everything and everybody to
shelter, and frozen the streams of
gossij. Those tvho imagine that
the country editor has no trials is
away off, and the reason so many
think they could get up a better
paper than he does is because they
have never tried it. A newspaper
is like a piece of machinery, in that
it requires fuel and grease to run it;
it is also like mortal man, because
it looks pale unless you have some?
thing to put in it. The editor may
do his level best from week to week
to ''fill up," but there are "lean"'
times, and no amount of foresight
or energy can entirely prevent it.
Even at these times the nonresi?
dent welco*^?:, .a.ul appreciates the
e/.unty paper, knowing full well
that everything is moving quietly
and serenely, with nothing startling
These ^oughts occur to us at a
time like this, and to refer to them
helps to fill up, answers as a sort of
explanation or .apology, and some
negligent county reporters may re?
proach themselves for de.erting^ us
and neglecting to send in the news
from their respective communities.
There is considerable talk about
certain ambitious gentlemen oppos?
ing Senator Thoms S. Martin for
re-election. We have heretofore
not noticed the rumors because we
have believed that they were the
result of a desire of individuals to
advertise themselves in connection
with this great office. We now ten?
der these ambitious gentlemen a
slight word of advice, and that is,
to save both their time and money,
because the people of Virginia have
no idea of changing a faithful and
efficient public servant, a man of
sterling integrity and the very high?
est personal character, for an un?
tried and inexperienced individual.
The wily politicians who desire this
office will of course be looking for
some issue or excuse upon which to
base a candidacy, but the real fact
remains that there is but one ex?
cuse possible for opposing Senator
Martin's re-election, and that is,
that some one else wants the office.
This county is overwhelmingly
for Senator Martin against anybody
in the State who might oppose him,
and we belieye that the State is in
the same condition of mind. There?
fore, we tender the advice, gentle?
men, save your time and your
money.?Orange Observer, Dec.
We feel sure the above expresses
the sentiments of our people, and
a change at this time would not be
in keeping with their wishes. Con?
tentment is the best evidence
that the people are pleased.
THE AGE OrrnFFETsYSTEM.
The Saturday Evening Post in a
recent issue said some very inter?
esting things about the age of the
fee system in this country. It
would seem that this abuse is one
which time has deeply rooted into
our governmental system.
Our contemporary tells us that
the fee system is "one of the oldest
of American institutions, for it
oame here with the first colonial of?
ficer." The office of Governor of
Virginia, according to the famous
historian, yielded $80,000 the year
to the nominal Governor, who stay?
ed in England, while the acting
Governor of the colony, who lived
in the Old Dominion, received $20
In the same period, the Governor
or New York was accustomed to
collect for his private purse $65,000
the year in land patent fees alone.
In a time of small fortunes, Govern?
or Clark, of New York, collected
$100,000 in seven years. In a very
brief tenure, Governor Clinton took
It will be well for defenders of
the fee system to note that in the
opinion of the Post the American
Revolution was a direct result of
the fee system, for the disputes
with colonial officers that culminat?
ed in the war were mainly brought
about by the attempts of colonial
officers to collect fees.
Its age is no argument for the
system. There is no statute of
limitations in this case to bar the
rights of the people to abolish this
iniquity. The day is not so far
away when nothing that is unbusi?
nesslike will be tolerated in the ad?
ministration of the public business.

attributable more to ignorance ol
the law than desire to eyade its re?

prietors familiarized themselves
with the law which has been sent
to them, they were prompt t c

Short sheets and unsanitary ar?
rangements, according to Dr. Flan?
nagan, are the chief violations ol
the law, whiph was passed at the
request of the traveling men of the
State. This law required eight-foot
sheets on every bed and contains
strict sanitary regulations. Dr.
Flannagan found many sheets in

proprietors to lengthen the sheets.

Btaunton's famous cave-Ins are
I now a thing of the past, and traffic
is resumed on the two streets af?
fected by the unusual phenomenon
!of August 11th. The channel of
the 100-foot cavity was arched with
300 cubic feet ot concrete, and the
cavities across the streets were
then filled in. The arches rest up?
on solid rock basis, and the streets
are believed to be as safe ever. The
cost to this city was $7,000 and
over 3,300 yards of earth was re?
quired to fill in one of the holes.
Staunton has had wide adver?
tisement by reason of the
catastrophe, and now the city
is anxious to let the world know
she is safe and sound, and altogeth?
er herself again. Only one fatality
has occurred in connection with
the cave-ins, William Sprouse hav?
ing been caught by falling earth
and carried to a watery grave.

An Ola Garret on a Stormy Day.
I know no nobler forage ground for
a romantic, venturesome, mischievous
boy than the garret of an old family
manslou on a day of storm. It is a
perfect field of chivalry. The heavy
rafters and dashing rain, the piles of
spare mattresses to carouse upon, the
big trunks to hide in, the old white
coats and hats hanging In obscure cor?
ners like ghosts, are great! And it is
so far away from the old lady who
keeps rule in the nursery that there ia
no possible risk of a scolding for twist
Iner off the fringe of a rug. There ls
no baby in the "jarret to wake up.
There ls no "company" in the garret
to be disturbed by the noise. There is
no crochety old uncle or grandma,
with their everlasting "Boys, boys!"
and then a look of horror.?Donald G.

Jack Sheppard had a great hold upon
the Imagination of the people of his
time. The fact that 200,000 people wit?
nessed his execution at Tyburn on
Nov. 18, 1724, "upon the tree that bears
twelve times a yeare" ls some witness
to his grim popularity. But one of the
strangest tributes ever paid him was
the sermon preached upon him In a
"Oh, that ye were all like Jack Shep?
pard!" began the preacher, to the stu?
pefaction of his congregation. He went
on to draw a parallel between things

housebreaking might have been be?

HENTY AS AN INVENTOR.
Tho Author's Reversible Boat That
Was a Halfway 8ucoess.
George Henty, tbe author of boys'
stories, ls described In "Sixty Years
In the Wilderness," by Henry W. Lucy,
as the warmest hearted, shortest tem?
pered man In the world.
"Before he found his true vocation
In writing boys' books Henty tried'
various methods of supplementing his
salary on the Standard. One was the.
recovery of tin from broken or disused
utensils. For some months his study j
was filled with a bad smell and scraps
of broken tin. The smell was engen-|
dered by efforts to melt off tbe tin
from the baser metal with the assist?
ance of a chemical compound invent?
ed by the operator.
"The next thing that attracted Hen
ty's attention and filled him with hope I'
of fortune was tbe building of a re-j !
rersible boat, bound to right Itself au- *
tpmatJcaUy. ge took rooms up the (
river and, with some assistance fruin
a village mechanic, built his boat To
a certain extent it proved an unquali-i

rected touch, sometimes without it, it
would turn over, keel uppermost, with ?

was, as the French say, 'another pair t
of sleeves.' i

was frequently lgnpmlnlpnsly rescued

oozing water from pockets and boots. p
In the end his landlady gave bim no- n

THC BELTED PLAID.
This Was the Original' Dress of tl*
The original dress of the hlghlande
w?e the helled plaid This was a piee
of tartan cloth, two yard9 broad am
four lon;,-, which was drawn aroum
the waist in nicely adjusted folds an<
tightly buckled with a belt. The lowe
part caine down to the knees in mucl
the same manner as the modern kilt
while the upper part was drawn U]
and adjusted to the left shoulder, si
that the right arm might be perfectl;
free. This upper part was the plaid
which was used as I <-overing for thi
.shoulders and body In wet weather
nnd when the use of both arms wa;
required it wns fastened across thi
breast with a brooch, often .furiousl'
enriched. A brooch was also used t
fasten the plaid on the left shoulder
To attire himself tn. the belted plali
required on the part of the hlghlande
n<> small amount of dexterity. Th<
usual way was to lay it on the floo
and after carefully arranging thi
folds to lie down upon lt and thei
buckle lt on. The lower end was fas
taned nt the right hip. The utility o
such a dress In the highlands is ob
vlous, for the plaid rendered the mai
indifferent to storms and prepared t<
pass a night in the open air in thi
most inclement weather, while th<
loose undergarment enabled him t<
wade rivers or ascend mountains witl
equal ease. It was thus peculiarly
adapted to the warrior, the hunter an<

Corneille did not speak correctly the

society. Themistocles, when asked to
