The Stephens City Rat.
S. M. STICKLEY, Emtos. "snURDIY, NOVEMBER 5,1881^ Entered at the Post Office, Stephens City, ,Va„ as second class matter. Wk have made it a rule, from which we Will not deviate, that all papers sent to a distance—excepting those to be paid for by ft iends residing here —must be paid for in adrnnce, i i i ii ii i i i In the absence of our ex-editor, the duty, as well as the pleasure falls upon us to take up the pen that he has laid down, to "wield the cercbcral scalpel," in the furtherance of the regular issues of the Star, and in behalf of a people Who have so ably and intelligently Supported us in our infancy. Our ob ject shall always be to promote the honor of our state, and to save the credit of her people; condemning all things that are deliterious to her lib erties, and privelisjes (religiously and politically) and all deceptions used by party demagogues irrespectively, to gratify their gains. We hope that by our' devoted love lor our country, and its future pros perity, as well as our feeble efforts to maintain her old land marks, we may gain an indefatigable respect and friendship of her people. In the mean time our efforts will be unsparingly devoted to making the Star more fas cinating in its brilliancy ; sparing no labor in making out our reports cor rectly, and giving all the latest legiti mate news promptly. We feel more strongly than we can m describe, the importance of a true his tory of all deceptive matters circulated throughout our country from time to time; holding ourselves aloof from th im and endeavoring to bring them to the light and knowledge of the people, and hope our efforts will not be in vain, but that the Star may go on rapidly in the increase of its cir culation, until it finds its way into every household in the State. ■ wsm . THE COLORED DEMOCRACY. On Monday night last, Messrs. R. Page Hall, and Robert Turner Jr.' spoke to the Colored people of this place. These speakers are both repub licans, but education and experiance have taught them that the "Fawning Readjuster" are not the kind to " tie j to". They announced themselves as republicans always, now and forever, but said they were heart and soul for Daniel, Barbour, McKinney, and Holmes Conrad. They could not see how any intelligent, right thinking Colored man could cast his vote for a man, who had denounced the Colored people as only fit to> compete with weasels and minks, and looked upon them only as tools to swell their vote. They look upon Maj. Daniel as the colored man's friend, a friend to the Fublic Schools, and one who will be a 'People's Governor." They did not know how any man could be a Re ndjusfer and Republican too, as "re pudiation is poison to republicanism." They want to know why it is that the "Great Mogul" (Billy) cuts off so many many republican office hol ders heads if the party he represents are friends to the republicans. The ■peaking w*s a success here. May they and their espoused cause prosper Keno. —■«»».► . SHEPHERDS TO WN NEWS. From the Register : Mr. John Lamb, living, and work ing at the cement mills, below tcVwn, Thursday the 13th, while drilling out a blast hole, which had failed to go off struck on the cap of fulminating niur cury, and exploded the same, bursting and shattering the rock into fragments, One piece of stone, weighing upwards of three ounces, and about 2} inches in length, struck Mr. Lamb in the left thigh above -the bone, passing nearly through the same. A number oi spalls entered his side, face and s.rms, producing fearful and painful wounds. His face was completely blackened by the powder, and there are apprehensions that he will loose the sight of both eyes. The drill whioh he was using was blown through his hands (lacerating them terribly) with such force as to ascend upwards of a hundred feet or more and fall ing i. i|*e ..cljJFs übeye hjm. There were five others around him when the a„ii'.Unt took place, bat all escaped J injury. Titis is the second time Mr, Lam!) litis been hr.rt by art explflMOß, i once during the war by the accidental bursing of a bomb shell, at which time he was seriously hurt. He is now, we are glad to say, under the ef ficieiu treatment of Dr. Butler, in a fair way to recovery. ! m.^.m —A Mr. Sparks of Madison county, | Virginia, en route with his family to Missouri, where, having sold his, Vir ginia acres, he intends to settle, was robbed in Washington last week of $500 by confidence men. Beyond demonstrating the- criminal folly of monied dalliance with dice while thus transitu to a new nome there is a bit of a lesson here conveyed: Virginia is too fair a land to emigrate from —and so. is West Virginia. On Friday eveningof last week, a bout, 6 o'clock, as Mr. James H Row land was walking within a few yards of his mill door—four miles from town —a colored man stealthily came upon him and hit him upon the head with a stout stick knocking him down, sever ly cutting him by the blow. While he was in a hepless condition his pockets were rifled.— Free Press. <«aana» The new Secretary of the Treasury •is said to be worth $12,000,000. He is rich enough to live comfortably and entertain hondsomely without stealing. He will be able to furnish his house without the help of the Custo dian of Public Prosterities, and to drink lemonade without its supply being at the expense of the contigent fund of his bureau. The latest report we have on the cabinet making business at Wash ington is that ex-Gov. Morgan will not accept the Treasury portfolio. Try Grant—he never refuses anything but b ill pups. ««aa»»a» A readjtister writing from Sallville •ays " that as matters now stand the peopbtV cause will nweep the State, by forty thousand." That is above our estimate. We are not sanguine enough to expect much over twenty thousand majority for Daniel, We hope the gentleman from Salt River may prove right. He has obviously gone up to secure comfortable quarters in ad vance. -r-One trick of some of the Mahone (speakers is to present to their audi ences a sample of the Virginia Treas uay notes, and declare that Virginia had repudiated those notes, when they know that those notes and all kiuds of currency—Virginia Treasury notes, bonds, &c. —used in support of the wer, were wiped out by the Federal Goverment. They know the State has no more to'do with repu diating that class of bonds than she has with the management of the bonds and currency of Great Britain. Winchester I'intes. Wheeling, W. Va. May 30 1881. I am an old physician,and have lost many of my youthful prejudices. Hap pening to learn of the great good done by a certain remedy in restoring to ro bust health, a friei.d of mine who suf- ' fered from weak pulmonary, digestive j and urinary organs, and whom I was not able to benefit with my most care ful treatment, I determent! to prescribe it as occasion required. I have done so, and the re3tilt has been invariable the most satisfactory. Under its use the blood becomes richer, the digestive, urinary and pulmonary organs are made storng and perform their natural functions readily and without pain, all decay seems to be immediately checked and the progress of the d-.8 --ease arrested, the pulse becomes fuller and stronger, the lips red, the cheek* rosy, the temperature of the body increased and more uniform, the ac tion of the heart regular, and the mus cular strength greatly invigorated. In •justice to the inventors 1 will say,this remedy is called Brown's Iron Bitters, It is a preperation of iron and vegita ble tonics, contains no alcohol, and is the only preperation of Iron in a per fectly assimilable form,and that it does not blacken the teeth. I have never known it to fail to give permanent strength to every part of the body,or to injure the most delicate constituti on. I have known it to assist nature in curing many chronic diseaes when all other reme lies had failed. Its south ing effect on mind and body is most re markabls, and it is the only positive cure I know'of, for sexual weaknesses, •tto, those most stubborn of all debili jtating diwasM. . ■ .. M.

It isuot toosoonto commence to ar range for the preperation of tickets. In an election like the present this can done be with much more convey ance in the neighborhood of each elec tion than by this committee in Rich mond. The candidates are so numer ous that it would be less likely that ac curacy in the work should be secured there than in the several counties; and accidental errors could be correct ed here more certainly and expedi tiously than there, Remember, 1.

The editor of the Culpepper Timcn has had a son born unto jtun and his joy is eostasic. He says :.j "If we had the money we'd give all the printers in Virginia a million dol lars apice, We'd buy steam power presses for all our cotemporaries, and we'd build factories in "Culpepper. We'd own railroads and steamboats, fast horses and bicicles, banks and legislatures, We'd buy new uniforms for the minute men,send them to York town and pay them a yearly salery besides. That's just the way we feel. Money is no object now and we don't care a cent for costs." Tho editor of the Sh.epherdstown Register, who never had a "well spring of joy" in his house, can't enter into the feelings of the Culpeper brother, and calls him a "wild editor." He'll become tame enough by and by.— Free Press. | «■—.»» If you are in need of anything and don't know where to find it, go to: Steele & Dinges. Caught at Last. - A wt of tl.iovrs, known aa the Bennet G.mg, (lour in number J were arrested on last Sunday morning, three miles from Buckton station, Warren county, Va., and lodged in jail at Front Royal. They hive been carrying on petty thefts for several years ; annoying the people in that neighborhood by disturbing their milk houses, hen roosts, &c. Growing bold by each and various successes, it has led them to higher crimes. Some few weeks ago they stold two horses, one from Mr. Frank Henry, and one from Mr. B. F. Hehry; both living within one and a half miles of Ben tonville, Va. Rewards were offered for the return of the horses, and after some few days delay, they were found in Maryland. It seems that the Ben •neishave a sister living in Maryland, and that they run the horses there and sold them. Since their arrest, other crimes have been brought against them. one of which is the burning of a barn of a Vt. Dv flinger, close to Riverton, tL«y are no »• in jail, awaiting the ac .tioi. of' ne Grand Jury.
