CHKISTIAKSBTJBG, ) MOXTGOMEKY COUSTY, YA., September 27, 1889. ) In the summit of the AlIesheuT Mount ains in Virginia, 500 miles from Pittsburg, with the sun shining brisrhtly, a stift breeze blowins, and the thermometer ranging from 36 to 58, I find myself beside a comfort ing wood fire reading TnE DISPATCH, which has been a welcome visitor te the household of P. "W. Eeid, a former Pitts burger, since 1850. A short while ago I sat on the mountain divide; a stone's throw on my right is a spring the waters of which flow into the Kanawha, thence to the Ohio and Mississippi; a like distance on rur left is a brook which empties into the Roanoke, and thence into the Atlantic Ocean. From a good point of observation I can see with the eye the celebrated peaks of Otter 60 mile distant Five miles south of me is a fine white sulphurjspring; west,a yel low sulphur spring, while the most recently discovered spring on New river, called the Allegheny, is said to be strongly impreg nated with arsenic I expect to visit all of these resorts before returning. Christiansburg is the eounty seat of Mont gomery, and contains about 500 inhabitants. It has a sawmill, bank, hotels, churches tobacco tactory, tanneries, and roller flour mill, beside some of the best, if not the finest, producing farms in Virginia. THE FOREGONE CONCLUSION. Northern capital and energy has ma teriallv assisted in the development of the little place. Here reside A. D. Simpson, formerly of Mahoning, Pa., and an almost barren mountain when he came here is now a finely cultivated farm. Ten years ag came P. V. Keid, of Home stead, whose farm the first year did not av erage five bushels of wheat to the acre. Last year the yield was 39 bushels to the acre, and tbe local paptr pronounced it the best farm in the county. It is to-day worth seven times what was paid for it ten years since. Captain C. S. SchaefTer, of Philadelphia, is perhaps the best known Northern man for 300 miles around. He came here on de tached duty from the Army of the Potomac, one year after the close of the war, in the interest of the Freedmen's Board, and lo cated near the railroad station, on a site oc cupied by Generals Averill and Crook during some of their raids here. He was charmed with the spot and indeed with the whole country, and, exeept to visit Phila delphia every three years, for a short stay, has been steadily at work here. He took a lively interest in the elevation of the colored race, and, as early as 1867, by the aid of the Friends Freedmen's Association, of Phila delphia, and his own money, established the firit free school for the emancipated people. At first the whites did not take well to Captain SchaefTer and his ways, but as the threatening letters and "skulls and cross bones" continued to multiply, this philo sophic Northerner visited the county authorities and notified them that, if his barns and house were destroyed, he would hold the county responsible. HE GATE THEM THE SLIP. Once some Salem students undertook to mob the tall, magnificent, but dauntless Northern soldier at "Big Lick," now Roarnke City: but he quietly gave them the slip through tbe stovepipe hole of a cabin. On another occasion the Captain was riding with a colored man. and insisted on his keeping abreast of him instead of be hind him, as the whites demanded, and a mob threatened him. But the Captain calmly and coolly carried his point, and to-day he is perhaps the most popular white' man in the county. Finding that his work could be enlarged, he studied for the ministry and was licensed to Dreach, and to-day thei e stands above the station a beautiful brick church, erected bv Captain SchaefTer and his friends of Philadelphia, save perhaps $4,000 contributed by the whites and blacks of Christiansburg. The total cost of the edifice was over $11,000. It is called the Memorial Baptist Church, and is the result of the efforts of the Tenth Baptist congregation of Philadelphia, which, until recently, assisted in its main tenance, with Captain SchaefTer and his friends. The large new brick school house, erected about three years ago, two years after the church was completed, cost about $9,000, and is owned by the Philadelphia Quakers alluded to. There are 250 scholars enrolled, of all ages, and each vear graduates in Eng lish are recorded. Until two vears ago four white teachers were employed. The first year the colored teachers were in charge the school was not up to the mark, but last year the colored teachers Droved their efficiency, and have been engaged for another year, commencing with October 1. HIS WIDE JURISDICTION. Captain SchaefTer is the Principal of the school, and in fact Superintendent school, church, farm, etc, having jurisdiction over 119 churches, within a radius of 300 miles. The congregation at Christiansburg num bers 500, and the trustees are reqnired to pay Mr. SchaefTer $300 per annum. This cum he has regularly turned over to the building fund, supporting himself on what Philadelphians have supplied him and out of his abundant resources. Last year the congregation decided to give their benefac tor $500, and with this sum he intends fres coing the walls ot the edifice. In all of the churches over which he has jurisdiction the poor blacks have from time to time paid him for his services, but invariably the tnonev, apd in addition his own funds, have been drawn on to assist in the erection of the crossroads "xneetin house." That the blacks at Christiansburg prefer Captain SchaefTer as a preacher is attested by the fact that, when the Rev. Mr. Taylor col ored, died, the Captain was unanimously called to tbe pastorate, and has since been called annually for 23 years. The State and county apprjpriates $375 annually to tbe school, the total expenses of which are out t-yuu. xae scnooi is open now seven months in the year, though the term heretofore has been nine and ten months. Captain Scliaefler's children at tend school in Philadelphia, but his good wite lives here, and is a valuable assistant in his grand work. His home is a summer resort for Philadelphia friends, and no one in Virginia entertains more hospitably or fashionably. The Captain is tall and erect, with white hair and chin beard, and modestly savs he will continne in his present work as long as the colored people want his services. He donated to the church trustees nine acres of 'ground for a cemetery, conditioned that colored people generally should be interred therein. A PLACE OF PEEASUEE. Christiansburg, on account of its eleva tion, 2,100 feet above sea level, is fast be: coming a summer pleasure resort There is always a cool breeze blowing, and, notwith standing the hot san, a drive or stroll is highly enjoyed. The roads are hard and rockv and tbe pleasure seekers here think nothing of a 30-mile drive through the mountains in a half day. This season the small hotels in Christiansburg and at the the station, which is about a mile and a half from Christiansburg, were crowded by visi tors from the North and West, as well as Bomejamilies from the South. Hom.dO yea get nereirom jtriiwnurgr WHiay Take the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad to Shenandoah Jnnction, and you will arrive in time in the morning to see the most beautiful and dazzling sunrise. Then along the Shenandoah Valley, historic and pictur esque, you have a most enjoyable daylight ride. Yon pass the location of the now famous Luray caverns, which thousands of tourists annually visit Some miles further down the valley you reach Weir's cave and grottos ot more recent discovery. A fine view ot the historic "Lookout Mountain," and then the most direct route to the won derfnl "natural bridge." 2 miles from the station of that name. Before sunset you are at Roanoke, the terminus ot the Shenan doah Valley Railroad' and a more delight ful ride could not be provided. The valley, its entire length, is being developed rapid ly. An instance of this may be cited in reference to Roanoke, formerly "Big Lick." A BABE TRANSFORMATION. Six years ago the writer passed through Roanoke, over the Shenandoah Valley Rail road. It then had a few houses; a new rail road roundhouse bad just been finished; a new hotel was in course of erection on huge mound of red clav, and 600 people re sided at the point To-day that hotel is surrounded by a lawn of velvet green; the roundhouses are seveial in number; there are two furnaces in. operation; two large rolling mills at work, and a locomotive works, the largest in the South, nearly com nlpted. There are also a number .of smaller industrial establishments in full tide of success, and the population numbers 15,000, or an increase of 14,400 in six yearsl One of the principal causes for this pros perity in Roanoke is the opening of the Pocahontas coal field on New river, a few miles distant This coal is being taken out in great quantities thousands of tons daily and is being hauled East and West, avast amount of it going to Norfolk, over the Norfolk ana Western Railway, tor export It is alo magnificent coal for coking pur pose and very many ovens are burning, and train alter train load is sent East and West from this new field, the Norfolk and West ern getting a deal of the traffic. Of course this prosperity at Roanoke is felt in this locality, which is only 33 miles distant, and already it is proving a good market for wheat "and other cereals. STILL ItORE PROSPERITY. But another boom is in store forEoanoke. The Louisville and Nashville Kail road Company has just awarded a contract for the building of 47 miles of railroad from Cumberland Gap to Princess Flat, and when finished it will afiord a through line from Nashville to Norfolk, passing through a rich agricultural and mineral country, the development of which will bring prosperity to all the farmers hereabouts, as new markets will be opened up both East and West, Roanoke has two local daily papers which are apparently thrifty, and one or two weekly papers. Real estate within a year had more than quadrupled itself. A single instance will suffice. Some lots which coot $1,300 sold for $3,300, and again for $10,000 per lot within a year. At pres ent there is a lull in the market, but nearly all the available property in the city has been taken up for business purposes, and speculators are beginning to buy outside the corporation. I have made some inquireis about the can dacy of General Mahone. The colored men about Christiansburg, to use the language of one of them, "are punctual at the polling places," and they are generally in favor of the Republican candidate. General Ma hone, as nearly as I can estimate, will run well in Montgomery county. Percy F. Smith. CLEYEK CONSPIRATORS Succeed in Carrying Ont One of the Best Planned Robberies on Record Two YUltoin and a Telephone Call Do the Boslncm. Chicago, September 29. Eggleston,Mal lette & Brownell, contractors and manufact urers of crushed stone, occupy a handsome office in tbe Royal Insurance building. Yesterday was pay day for their big force of men. Mr. Mallette drew a check for the en tire amount and sent a clerk to the bank to get it cashed. He returned with 2,870 in currency, and placed the amount on his desk. The only other persons in the office at the time were Mr. Eggleston and Mr. Mallette. Both were busy writing letters. Just as the clerk began counting the money a well-dressed, good looking young man came into the office and engaged in conver sation with Mr. Eggleston, A minute later another young man came in through a dif ferent entrance and spoke to Mr. Mallette. At that instant the telephone bell rang. The clerk glancing up and seeing both members of the firm talking to strangers, left his desk to answer the telephone, which is hung in an adjoining closet. The first stranger concluded his conversation with Mr. Eggleston, ana passing by the clerk's desk, went ont through the entrance the other man came in at. Mr. Eggleston went on with his letter writing. Tnen Mr. Mal lette's caller withdrew. Both members of the firm were scratching away with their pens, when the clerk came out'of the tele phone closet and told Mr. Mallette that MarshallField & Co. had a package for him at their retail store on which they had advanced charges, and had called ud to know where the package was to be deli vered. Mr. Mallette said he did not understand what they meant, and went to the telephone. There was no one at the end of the wire and the connection had been broken. The clerk returned to his desk. The money was gone. His face grew pale, his knee's shook, and he could hardly control his voice long enough to ask Mr. Eggleston if he had taken the money. That gentleman replied that he had not Mr. Mallette stepped from the telephone closet and also denied having taken the money. Then the clerk began to laugh. He thought his em ployers were playing a joke on him, be cause of his carelessness in leaving so large a sum ot money exposed. But the serious- Dyspepsia's Victims are numbered by thou sands.

"What did your man want?" asked Mr. Mallette, turning to his partner. "He asked about the standing of some firm that I never heard of. And yours?" "He asked if we were figuring on a pav ing contract on the Westside." '"The man who rang the telephone was their confederate," was the simultaneous exclamation of all.

'-r His distinguished rank as an Egyptolo gist, as a novelist, and hiS-special investiga I ,- te regard to the Exodus, render his selection for this series of- novels extremely fortunate. The subject has thoroughly absorbed him. The scene of crossing the Eed Sea he regards as the strongest piece of work he has ever done. He has aimed at large movement. the big sweeps of vast bodies of men, and has produced a novel on a large and graphic plan. The story opens in the time of a plajrue, and the first chapters are picturesque and dramatic. Pharoah is introduced in one ot the early chapters. The other novels in this remark able series to be published in TBTE SUNDAY DISPATCH are: "COME FORTH," .
