A countryman who gave his name as

furore trying to paint the whole outfit
with a 25-cent jag, ami reached such a
stage that he defied the police and every
one else to arrest him. People, as a rule,
don't like to take bluffs, and before Mr.
Wertz could realize the fact he was in
the hands of the ollicers and was hustled

A Few Notes on the Feed Store of J. A.
Hoover. No. SU'Saletu avenue.
Roauoke, although in her Infancy as a
city, has already won a place In the front
ranks among the liberal, progressive and
enterprisiug communities'of this gr;md
old commonwealth, and to no other cause
is this more to be attributed than the
fact that the merchants and busiuess
men of this city are always fully alive to
the public interests, and are willing at
all times tj make any reasonable sacri?
fice for the public welfare.
These characteristics have given a tone
to the'eit/.enship of Roanoke which has
earned for the people here the respect and
admiration of the Scute and country to
such an extent that they have justly ac?
quired the reputation of hustlers, and
whenever they start out to do a thing
Individually or collectively, success,
where the conditions are satisfactory, is
retarded as assured. Among the many
live and euergetic young business men
of this city is Mr. J. A. Hoover, dealer in
all kinds of feed, wholesale and retail,
at No. 214 Salem aveuue.
Mr. Hoover is a native of Rockineham
county, in the fertile and productive
Shennndonh Valley, and has been a resi?
dent of lioanoke Tor the past six years.
He was reared on oue of the best farms
in the valley, and Is thoroughly ac?

moderate scale, and from knowing a'l
details fully, has been able to keep con?

stoc'i of everything in his line. This
naturally helped to increase bis business,
until now he has at his three story brick

shucks, straw and all kinds of mill feed
to be found in this city or section.
The but hit ug Is 25x110 feet in dimen?
sions, with an elevator running from
the first to tlie third floors, and is other?
wise admirably arranged for the feed
business. The bins are well stocked with
oats, hay. corn, screenings, bran and chop
stuff, while bales of hay aud shucks are
piled up on all three floors. It is in the
center of the city, and has telephone con?
