purpose that distinguished ^him from so
many of the modern French writers of
"The extraordinary imagination and
force of language so often met in Hugo's
style doubtless con tribute to a certain
critical distrust ol bis judgment and
moderation. He was an intensely radical
reformer in the domain of politics and
sociology, and "advocated theories liable
to be misconstrued and sure to be un?

LESLIE'S POPULAR MONTHLY*
??Andrew Jackson" is the subject of
the leading article in Frank Leslie's pop?
ular Monthly for November. It treats of
the general in private life, and is the first
I of n series of papers on the life, times
ami compatriots of the popul?r hero,
which will run in that magazine for seve?
ral months. A. Oakoy Hall contributes
this first article, which is illustrated with
excellent drawings by H. M. Eaton, and
portraits and relics of "Old Hickory."
Another article in this number is "The
Mcipii Indian Snake Dance,-' by Lieu?
tenant E. H. Pliimbei,with photographic
reproductions of different phases of the
dance. Then there is a paper on "The
Fisherfolk of Scotland," by M. E. Leices?
ter Addis; al?o well illustrated. The col?

this inag/ino's series, treats of Columbia
University, and is by J. Frederic Thovne.
CARD OF THANKS.
We, tho underslgued representatives of
the Central Labor und Trades Council,
of Koanoke, appointed at the last meet?
ing of tho saidabody, lake this method of
thanking thu merchants and business
men of this city aud every one lending a
helping hand in the Labor Day festivi?
ties on Monday, September G, 1897, for
their hearty co-operation and donations
in making that occasion such a grand
and glorious success.
? )\ving to the fact that tho shop and
railroad moo have been working extra
time and therefore have been unable to
attend, there have been no meetings of
the Central Labor and Trades Council
since Lahor Day, hence the lateness of
this card of thanks.
