Ex-President Cleveland on the way to

Recent reports of utrocit ies committed

If the rehearsal at the Academy on Sat?
urday, of t he operatic extravaganza,which
is to he given by theAllegbany Dramatic
Association on the uight of the 21st, can
be taken as a criterion, we are to have
right in our midst on that occasion a
most enjoyable production. It is un?
doubtedly the most pretention's effort
ever made uy nny amateur organization
in our city, and abounds In genuine fun,
heavy choruses and local hits. We pre?
dict for it a great success.
The Cheat Mountain Sportsman Asso?
ciation, of West Virginia, leased Fri?

Pocahontas counties, and will convert it
into a mammoth game and fish preserve.
Through this territory run 200 miles of
trout streams. (bone in our own St at"
is fairly well protected, but so far as the
fish laws are concerned we might as well
have none. Under the preseut [state of
affairs with us, such an organization as
the one just referred to would-be impos?
sible fo*1 the reason that there would be
no giiaiantee of protection for its

abound in bass and trout streams, that

so long as the wholesale destruction of !

f'Gentlemen:?My troubles began with
nervous headaches, which would last
mo for two or three days. The doctors
pronounced my trouble dyspepsia, but
they could not do anything for me, and
advised a change of location. At the age
of 55 a tumor formed on my spine, which

but did not rise or discharge. The doctor
thought best to cut it out, but I objected.
It finally broke and discharged a great
deal. The doctors suid they could do
nothing for iL. Then the tumor began to
rise inwardly and discharge. I read much
about cures by Hood'b Sarsaparille nnd
thought I would try it. Before I had
finished taking ono bottlo I was much
relieved. I continued the use of Hood's
Sarsaparilln,and after taking 12 bottles I
was entirely cured. I am now well, havo

TUK PASTOR'S SALARY.
Under the above caption the Washing?
ton Post has some things to say that are
so universally true, and that will find au
echo in the homes of so many pastors,
that for the benefit of tlie readers of The
Times we prefer to give the article in its
entirety. Xot that the rebuke implied'ui
it is applicable to Koanoke more than
other cities,but should there be a congre?
gation in our city to which its truths will
apply, then let its members when" they
go to service this morning, get-, practical
good out of tho article by squaring up
their church assessments:
"!f there is one thing in wh.ch
churches, as a rule, need to bo more care?
ful it is in this matter of preacher's sala?
ries. With an iuditTcrence and an insen?
sibility which wo caunot understand
many churches seem to think that a con
tiact between them elves and their minis?
ter is no coutract at all. They promise
[ him a definite salary and then pay him
I whatever is convenient. Tue gas man,
the coal man, and even tho sexton must
be paid, but ihe debt owing to the minis?
ter is looked upon as altogether rieht
ecus aud proper. There is no question of
bis worthiness or painstaking devotion,
no quibble as to the terms upon which he
eutered the pulpit. He is built ns other
meu are, with the same stomach that
needs satisfying,with the same body that
requires clothing, and with that inability
to camp out in the open air which "neces?
sitates a house'over his head. Out of his
superior grace, however, "he is expected
to observe with equanimity the monthly
shortcoming in the matter of his salary,
and to preach honesty from the pulpit
when he is a standing example cf unkept
"There are, of course,happy exceptions
where churches do pay their pastors fully
and promptly. We would that the prac?
tice were universal. We would that all
churches might be actuated by a nice
sense of houor which would view arrears
iu their pastor's salary with the same ab?
horrence that an upright mau regards
theft. Of all men in the worbl the min?
ister Is worthy of bin hire,and every obli?
gat ion toward him should be met with
DISGRACE TO THE STATE.
It is cot probable that the present legis?
lature will adjourn Without taking some
actiou iu regard to the State peniten
tiary. The condition of the building is
such that common humanity demands
that some plan be adopted for the rede!
of its prisoners, who though transgres?
sors of the law, aro yet human, and have
a claim upon our sympathies. The pres?
ent hut 1(11 ugs were built more than a cen?
tury ago, when the total white popula?
tion did not exceed half a million, bur.
which now,white and colored, approaches
closely to two millions. What was then
considered adequate accommodation has
since been made to do duty for ft popula?
tion nearly four times as larue. Built
originally upon the primitive lines, its
cells are small and poorly ventilated, and
Into these are crowded sometimes is
many as twenty or twenty-five prisoners,
who in winter are compelled id breathe
the feetid atmosphere arising from the
crowding of so many together, and in
summer to swelter In the oppressive
heat. The superintendent, is powerless
tc remedy jhis. for he is responsible fot
the safe keeping of those iu his charge,
and the State allows him only so much
space in which to secure them. Physi
ciiilly, the situation is bad enough, but
when we consider the matter from a
moral standpoint, *the wickedness and
shame are almost beyond description.
Those who are in confinement for compar?
atively minor offences are force 1 to herd
like cuttle with criminals of the worst
type. Until sotre change can be made,
it is almost impossible to [.secure refoim
of character, or to hope '?for any moral or
religious improvement, the whole place
being one 'fomenting hotbed of sin and
vice, In which germinate fre?h seeds of
crime to be disseminated throughout the
country as soon as the various terms ex?
pire. Out civilization and our Christi
unity, as well Us the fair name of the
Slate, demand that a'change be n ade.
Were the institution .not self-sustaining,
then perhaps some excuse might be made
iu extenuation, but when the profits aris?
ing fiom convict labor Jure made to yield
a revenue of $05 per capita or $50,000 an?
nually, the neglect to remedy the evil be
ccroes criminal anil beyond all condon?
ing. Time and again attention has been
called to the fact that the w'sest course
of action would be to build u second
prison, thus dividing not only the re?
sponsibility of management, but nUo de?
creasing tho opportunity for fostering
vice and crime. Should this be done, and
we believe it is the decision the State
will e\cntnolly arrive at, then naturally
some part of the Southwest will be se?
lected as the site for the new building.
Geographically considered. Roanokc
would he the most appropriate place that
could be selected; whilst lor Its cheap

ness in affording supplies, its facilities
for obtaining raw matcryil for it? manu?
factures, md lor shipping the finished
products, no ,place could hope to com?
pete with it. The advantages' accruing
in the city from such an establishment
: in her midst are too apparent to now
I mention. Much of the work necessary
! to the etcctitn d buildings could be per?
formed by orison labor, and thus the ex?
penses materially lessened. Hut whether
here or at some other point, whether the
old buildings be torn down und new ones
erected on the present site, for tho sake
of our boasted civilization let us not see
another session of the legislature close
without some steps being taken to ivipe
on* the blot that has Already sunk <!< ep
into the fair name of the .State.
BIG ASPIRATIONS. .
What tho Diainnn 1 Orchard Company
(lives Promise of Reing to This Section.
Salem Times-Register: Ironie time ago
we briefly referred to the fact that the
Diamond Orchaid Company, I of this
place, bad been chartered,and that it had
450 acres of laud in one body, just south
of the corporate limits, which would be
?et out asa mammoth appleanU peach or?
To Jay we are able to submit some Az?
ures concerning the enterprise, that will
in cessarlly interest our readers. For some
time a force of from 75 to 85 men, seve?
ral teams and plows,have been busily en?
gaged in planting out the trees. There
will be 4?,000 trees planted,one-half each
of apples and peaches, 20,000 of which
have already been set out. anil 12,Out)
more will be placed-this winter and next
spring, while the resl will be set out and
the orchard fully planted next fall.
It la estimated by the men at the head
of the enterprise that the peaches set out
will pay for the orchard and all its run?
ning expenses duriug'the r.ext ren years,
when it is calculated these trees will lie
out of the way. H> that time it is ex?
pected that the apples will have begun to
bear. Experience has proven that apple
trees, well cultivated and enrol for. when
from twelve tu fifteen yi.irs rib!, will
yield an average of ten bushels each As
there w ill be 2*3,500 apple trees in this or?
chard, we have from ;t the" grand aggre?
gate of 225,000 bushels, or 75,000 barrel.*.
The Norfolk and Western Railroad
Company has become very much inter?
ested in this enteprlse, and have been do?
ing some figuring on theirjown account,
which biings out the fact that ?heu the
bearing time conies it will be a grea"
thing for that road too. Flguiitig hn
above the apple crop .?t 75,000 barrels,
they estimate that at 120 barrels to the
car hind, it will take 020 cars to haul the
apples to market. Then figuring 80 cars
to the train, we have the aggregate of
twenty trains, of thirty car loads each,
required to do the work.
Take 75.000 barrels of apples at the
low,.?t price paid thin year for even in
ferioi fruit?'?2 tier barrel?and wo have
for oiu? season the handsome sum of $150,
000 to be divided between the owners of
the enterprise, who do not 6xpect to em?
ploy any 'midlle n eu," but will do their
own selling, pnoKiug nnd'shlpping.
It 'a not improbable that large can?
neries, dryers, vinegar mills, etc., may
be operated here, too, in connection wit.n
thi.s and other orchards. When it is re?
membered that the claim la made for the
above orchard referred to, that it. will
contain as many trees as ail the orchards
in this county and a large portion of Hot
etourt combined, some idea of what its
extent and usefulness will be,is the more
