WOULDN'T BUY "THE TICKET.
A man appeared at the ticket window
of the passenger station one day this
week and asked the price of two tickets
to Vinton. After a vaiu effort to get a
reduced rate on account of buying two,
he said he guessed he'd take one, and
walked ofT with it. Presently he return?
ed and asked the agent to take It back.
Said his wife wouldn't buy one for her?
self and he wasn't, and they could walk.
He remarked that his wife had money
but Jwaa the "gol-darndest contrarlest
woman that ever was" and he wouldn't
buy her a ticket ?o save her life. The

J. H. WINGATE,
The following interesting notes are
taken from the Radford Advance: The
city of R?dford has for years virtually
belonged to the Norfolk and Western
railroad. Now let it go to work for soli.
As long as we aro tied to a corporation,
so long will we be in bondage. Build
factories and make others come to you.
The electric light plant, the water
works, the ?<tree? car nnd the Advance are
all that are left of they'^oom day??" of
Radford. Tbey are still running, and
may be allvo when some of the corpora?
tions that have worked for the downfall
of Radford are gone and fcrgotten.
Wo hear that several of our merchants
are getting ready to leave Radford. We
dislike to reo them go, but those who
have the grit to stay through what we
might call the . present panic, will reap
the benefits when Radford conies up out
of the ashes. This, we hope, will not bo
The railroad company is a company iu
name so far as Radtord is concerned. It
does look hard that a..town with the
capabilities and possibilities of Radford
should be utterly Ignored by a company
of men, but 'tis so. We are off the map.
We don't care it we are. We will bet
that Radford will be here when the offi?
cials of the railroad aro gone nnd forgot?
A PRACTICAL JOKER.
A well known clerk in the Norfc'k and
Wes<oru offices yesterday morning
thought to perpetrate a joke ou one ot
the boys who happened to be in a second
hand store on Commerce street in front
of which stood ajbicycle, which said clerk
supposed to belong to said boy, and
which he proceeded to 'appropriate and
lead away. When the boy came out of
the store Mr. Clerk asked him, "Why
don't you get your wheel:'" and was
astounded at the reply, "I'm not riding
it to-day.'1 Inability tc ride the animal
is all that saved .Mr. Clerk frr*ni getting
oil a huge joke ion himself, as he would
have ridden instead of leading it away
and tho storekeeper, instead of making
great eyes at him, would probably have
called iu the assistance of a policemau.
Moral, be sure you are right iicfore crack?
ing a joke.
Tho Suowville correspondent of the
Radford Advance writes the following:

Aminen and wife and Mrs. John
