Separated Before War, Couple Are Again Together. ERECT MEMORIAL ALTAR Friends of Orange Attorney Make Presentation to Church. CHILDREN TAKE TREATMENT Two Bitten by Mad Dog Return From Pasteur Institute Ap parently Cured. Special Correspondencf of The Star. CULPEPER, ya November 2. 191'J. An unusual incident. If uot unprece dented. happened in Culpeper this week when Robert Dean, colored, seventy eight years old, applied at the clerk's of fice for a license that he might bo re united in marriage with the woman who had been his wife in slavery times. Be longing then to dilTerent masters they had been separated and sold, the man marrying again when all trace of his earlier wife had been lost and the woman doing likewise. Now that the respective husband and wife are both dead the old couple have come together, and, accord ins? to the license issued Wednesday, were remarried this week. Friends of the late John G. Williams, a lawyer of Orange, have presented to the Episcopal Church of that place a ma hogany altar, brass cross and vases in metnoriam. The presentation and un veiling took place last Sunday, the dedi cation sermon bei:ig preached by the Rev. John llansborough, a retired minister, who was for many years rector of the church. At the same service a credence table was placed in the chancel by Miss M. L. Grymes in memory of her sister. Miss Fanny Grymes. The two children of Wade Newland, who lives near Declair. have returned from the Pasteur Institute in Haltimore. where they were sent for treatment after btring bitten by a little house do;;, which was found to be sufiering from rabies. The animal was killed before it attacked any one else, and the children, since their treatment, appear entirely well. Arrangements have been made by the law rirni of Waite & Perry with the firm uf Jeffries, Walcott, Walcott & Lank- ' ford of Norfolk, \'a.. whereby John .L. Jeffries will attend the terms of the court of Culpeper county, and be asso ciated with them in their practice here, under the name of Waite, Perry & Jeffries. Mr. Jeffries was tormerlv con munwealth's attorney of Culpeper. and even since his residence in Norfolk has appeared in many cases of importance in the courts here. One of the must notable was the celebrated Strothei-Iiy waters case, in which lie was counsel for the defendants. New Industrial School Opens.

Indications Are He Will Carry West Virginia. HOPE TO SAVE THE STATE Republicans, Headed by Dr. Hat field, Expect to Win. PROHIBITION IS BIG ISSUEj Both Drys and Wets Claim Majori ties, Figures Being 40,000 and 10.000, Respectively. I WHEELING. \Y. Va? November 2 ? j The windup of the campaign in West Virginia develops nothing to change the earlier prediction that Woodrow Wilson will set the electoral vote by a goodly margin. Another best bet is the election of the republican state ticket, headed by Dr. Hatfield for governor, although this is not so certain as three weeks ago. The legislature will probably be demo cratic, insuring a democratic United States senator. The composition of the congressional delegation is hard to pre dict, because the congressional tights this > year have been overshadowed by the ? presidential and gubernatorial issues. The wet and dry tight in the last ten | days has also overshadowed every other ! consideration. The voters of \V est N ir ginia next Tuesday will pass on the Ques tion of constitutional prohibition of the liquor traffic in the state. That fight has reached the street corner stage and both sides are pouring in tneir Heaviest oratorical artillery. The prohibition foj-ces claim West Vir ginia will ko dry by the wets claim victorv by 10,000. \\ est \ irginia had the same tight in ISSS and turned down prohibition by a big majority, the dry counties especially vot.ng wet. But this time sees a much different situation, with new arguments and new elements aiding tne drys. while the drys are more practical in their methods tnan formeny. Aids the State Ticket. ' As a comp.ication to the general po'it ical situation, the prohibition issue seems to aid more than it harms the republi can state ticket. Dr. Hatfield was sup pored by ihe liquor sentiment in his party for the nomination. He got 30,000 majority over Swisher and Dilon, the latter, a dry republican, running a poor third, which fact, combined with the vie to. ies of local candidates running in counties where the issue was a tactor. tends to encourage both the republicans and the wets. The republicans hope for victory for their state ticket, because it has the indorsement also of the bull moose partv. The democratic guberna torial candidate. William It. Thompson, is satisfactory to the liquor people, but they are for Hatfield first, and the dry votes Thompson will get are more of a negative character. The republicans with Chairman James S. Lakin as spokesman, claim for Hat field a majority of :U',000. Chairman Stewart L. Walker of the democratic j committee claims Wilson will carry the > state by 50.000 and Thompson by 13,000. | Both sides affect to believe the state vote ! will turn largely on developments in the so-called black belt, a tier of counties on the Norfolk and Western railroad, largely republican, and likewise wet. The democrats are contending there have , been illegal registrations in large num- | bers in that section. On the character of the support to the republican state ticket depends the ques tion of the election of the new represen tative-at-large, with chances favoring the republican, Howard Sutherland, although Ben Hiner. the democrat, is confident. If the Roosevelt republicans support the republican state ticket fully the demo crats expect defeat, but they havj been working to arouse progressive aid and by some clever appeals have undoubtedly influenced large numbers to repudiate the progressive state committee's in dorsement. Out With Repudiation. Chairman James H. Strickling of the progressive congressional committee in the fifth congressional district is out with a repudiation. Ex-Representative Charles P. Dorr of the third district nd vises progressives to vote for Roosevelt and Johnson and the democratic state ticket. In several counties the progres sive rank and file are hearkening to the appeal to rebuke W. M. O. Dawson, Gov. Glasscock and other Roosevelt leaders, for agreeing "to deliver the bull moose vote to the republican state machine." The democratic leaders are becoming increasingly optimistic of the success of their entire ticket, and it must be ad mitted they have mnre reasons for this feeling than a few weeks ago when the Hatfield ticket was conceded a certainly. In the absence of a definite line on the extent of the progressive defection from the republican state ticket it can be said that Hatfield yet remains the best bet, with Thompson and his democratic col leagues having an improved chance as election day draws nearer. Despite the great fipht put up by George A. Laughlin to defeat Representative John W. Davis in the first district, Davis will probably be re-elected. This is a protective tariff district and L?aughlin has sent out tons of literature on the tariff, criticising Davis especially for voting tor the I'nderwood bill, which would have reduced the duties on tin plate. There are about 4,<n>0 tinplate workers in this district. Wool-growing farmers have been appealed to in like vein. But Davis' conceded ability and more especially his personal popularity justify the predic tion that he will be returned. A guess is that tlie democrats will get four of the six representatives. A guessable proposi tion is whether Taft or Roosevelt will i run second to Wilson. EVANGELICAL MEETINGS Will BE STARTED TODAY Y. M. C. A Is to Conduct Inter denominational Series for Five Months.
