/ Valuable Invention by a Kuanuker.
/ Mr. Samuel B. Dearing, station master
'at Roanoke, has recently received from
the p&tent otlise Washington, D. C ,
"the exclusive right to make, use and
vend," etc., his invention, consisting of
an improved railroad car wheel, having
"a wheel within a wheel," or, in other
words, two wheels cast solid on a
common hub, the outer running on the
rail, and the inner, smaller in diameter
than its twta, to be used for braking
purposes solely. This auxiliary wheel
Is hollow and perforated as well as
being thrown outward from Its fellow,
tbe expreas purpose of which is to
afford free ventilation, thus entirely
dissipating the heat generated by the
application of the brake shoe and pre?
venting its communication to the wheel
on the rail. Paramount over tho other
advantages of this patent is the fact
that its adoption will remove the brak?
ing apparatus of cars from hanging di -
roctly Gver tho rail, so th u in case of
its breaking or falling down from any
cause it would drop between instaad of
on tho rails as under the present usage
and thus eliminate a serious mcnaco to
|ife and property.

A telogram was received yesterday
mornlnsr by M. Conroy from Altoona,
Pa., stating that Jas. A. McConnoll died
tho evening before, of brain fever, at
the residence of hiB brother, W. P. Mc?
Connoll, in that city. Mr. McConnell
was well known here, having been gen?
eral foreman of tho Roanoke Machine
Works for a number of years, and his
many friends in this oity will be grieved
to learn of his death. He resigned His
position in the shops in 1801 to go into
the contracting business. Ho was In
the City Council tbe greater portion of
the time in which he was a oiti/.en of
Roanoke, and was a powerful factor in
the city politically. Mr. McConneli was
a widower, his wife having been killed
in 1887 by being struck by a stone from
a blast on Holliday street. He was
about 43 years of age, and left Roanoke
about a yoar ago, when he went to the
home of his brother at Altoona, whore
ho remained until his death He was
an active member of tbe B. P O. E.,
and the funeral services will be con?
ducted by the Altoona Lodge of Elka.
He was a member of Roanoke Lodge,
and a committee from here left last
night to attend the funeral. The fune
ral services will take place on Saturday

If there was doubt in thu mind of any
suiTeror from Asthma in tho city as
to tho truth of tho claims mado j
for Dr. Scbiumunn'u Asthma Curo
that doubt no longer remains, providing
ho was among the many who called at

many who availed thomsolvos of this
physician's ofTer havo not as yot had
occasion to test tho free sample obtained,
yet a great number wbo have already
tried tho same most unhesitatingly do
olaro in positive terms that roliof was
immediate; that tho wretched spasms
wore checked; that free expectoration
was induced; that a reclining position
was readily assumed and gratefully
maintained; that tho sloop which fol?
lowed was restful and unbroken, and
that the morning brought a cloar head
and a feeling of delightod thankful?
ness which no words are tco strong to
detcrlbe It is not pretended that a
cure follows the use of the sample.
Asthma and its kindred ailments are
among tho most stubborn known to
iBclence. But it is asserted positively,
\nd testified to by thousands, that a
consistent ?and porsoverant use cf
rb. Scbifftnann's Asthma Curo will not
01 ly produce instant relief, but will
