tricts to Ohio en route to Omaha, aud j
I bus or Dayton will be chosen.
Liington, Sept. 22.— Major-General J
gh Lee, of Virginia, will proba- j
be selected to command the army
upation of Cuba. The military
advisor, of tbe president think that a

ion the war investigation com
mittee which causes great disappoint
merit to the President. It was thought'
he would certainly accept at the time
his appointment was made.
Washington, Sept. 22.—Tho president
has been deeply impressed by the vari
ous representations that have been
made within the last few days in regard
to the desirability of postponing the
military occupation of Cuba. It has
been set forth that the regular troops
on account of the hard campaign at
Santiago are in no condition to perform
even trarrison duty in Cuba during the
rainy season. General Miles is at Lex
ington and is the leading advocate of

very grave, and the clash between the
military and the civil authorities over
the Dreyfus case is very pronounced.
The seizure of Colonel Picquart by
General Zurlinden, the military govern
or of Paris, when being tried by civil
process is feared as the first step toward
a dictatorship. It emphasizes a deter
mination on the part of the army to
prevent a revision of the Dreyfus case
at all costs.
Rtork, Sept. 23.—Dun's review of
ys: This country is rapidly be
the controlling factor in tbe
narket and we will not have to
Europe any more. August re
iow a large balance in favor of
ted States. Exports in bread
how large decrease. Reports
irom different cities show a wonderful
increase and activity in the chief cen
tres of western trade, particularly at
Chicago, St. Paul and St. Louis. The
Eastern cities also report a large trade.
The iron and steel industry expands
with rapidity and beyond all expecta
tions. The deliveries of boots and
shoes is larger than ever. The textile
industries are not sharing in the gen
eral improvement because of the heavy
decline in cotton. Failures this week
are twenty-five per cent less.

ed. The European community at

tain's opportunity.

The Democratic Candidate Full
of Confidence. {{
Judge J. __f. Quarles, democratic can-,
didate for congress, reached homejyej**'
terday from an extensive electioneer ing
tonr tjhrough 33uckinKha£_i and, other |
Eastern Virginia counties. He bearded
lion inhls deri by Tight into j
Colonel Hubard's ■ neighborhood and]
talking to those who live about him.
He met most of the prominent.citizens
of the county at the court house, and
these took him in charge i.nd went with
him, introducing him to tbe rank and
file Of the people of Buckingham, and
he met a most enthusiastic ■ree_ptJori j
wherever he went. He feels no uneasi
ness either from stay at homes or from
fishermen on election day in that county,
and believes the party is steadily getting
into fine condition in the district. The
only thing for the democrats to guard
__.*_pathy,^(^jU [ thinks
is more likely to affect other portions of
the district than that east of the Blue
There are a few persons who are sore,
but very few, and if there ever was
much of this feeling, it ia fast healing
over, and will in no sense be comparable
to the trouble between the republicans,
who are widening every day the breach
in their party by injudicious and bitter
arraignment of each other
On Monday Judge Quarles will speak
at Nelson Courthouse.
"There is no question as to the elec
tion of Judge Quarles to succeed Yost
in the 10th district," said Hon. Pem
broke Pettit, of Fluvanna, who was in
the city yesterday to attend a meeting
of the state board of fisheries, says the
Richmond Dispatch. "He is making a
fine canvass, and an effective one. The
people are realizing that he is an excel
lent man and a clear and logical debat
er. lam confident ha will be elected.
No. I have not gone on tbe stump yet,
owing to the pressure of private busi
ness, but I shall do so soon, and do the
very best I can for the candidate."
Death of Mr. Mehurin.
O. C. Mehurin, station agent in this
city for the Chesapeake and Ohio Rail
way, died on Thursday afternoon at the
home of his sister in Salt Lake City,
Utah. Mr. Mehurin had for a long
time been a sufferer with throat trouble,
and it was in the hope of securing relief
that he went on a visit to Salt Lake
City. At first it was thought he was
improving, and the news of his death
was quite a shock to his family, who
reside in this city.
Deceased was a native of Newark, 0.,
and his remains will be shipped to that
city for interment. Mr. Mehurin came
to Virginia in the year 1891, and for a
long time resided at Basic City. In
1896 he removed to this city to accept
the position of agent of tbe Chesapeake
and Ohio Railway, a position he held at
the time of his death! Deceased was 47
years old. He leaves a wife and seven
children together with a number of
friends to mourn their loss.
Mr. Mehurin was a member of the
Staunton Baptist church and also an
Odd Fellow. He was an upright citi
zen, and was esteemed by a large circle
of friends.
The Coming of Baby.
When a baby comes to the house real
happiness comes. The care and anxie
ty count for nothing against the cling
ing touch of the little hands and the
sound of the little voice. The highest
function given to human beings is
bringing healthy, happy children into
the world. Over thirty years ago the
needs of women appealed to Dr. Pierce,
now chief consulting physician to the
Invalid's Hotel and Surgical Institute,
of Buffalo, N. Y. The result of his
study improved by thirty years of prac
tice is embodied in Dr. Pierces Favorite
Prescription. It strengthens, purifies
and makes healthy the organs distinctly
feminine. It give 3 weak women the
strength and health necessary for the
production of healthy children and it
makes the bearing of those children
easy. It is sure to cure any weakness
or derangement peculiar to women:
stops pain, soothes inflammation,
strengthens, purifies, invigorates.

He Makes Startling Declara
tions at Jonesville.
j. A special from JonesviHe, Lee county,
|to the Bristol Times-Courier, says:
General Walker harangued the people
■at this place for an hour and tbree-
IQuarters yesterday! The old man has
lost his fire and ginger. lie labored
manfully, but. despite his efforts his
speech fell with s flit thud upon the ears,
"cold democratic audience."
The general evaded tjie truth at near
ly every point, and left the highways
of tbe campaign to follow the hog-paths
o_ the>demagogue. He l >s_MM___tj tbe.
'pebiile c ! ouid takfe'his _lcb-rd'a_id go to
sheol with it, for all he cared,
and that he would start afresh and
build him anew one, free from
all taint Of secession, free silver,
negrctVotiai, and all the thousand and
one thinqgEthat are recorded in the
pres_9_ __py He summed up his life in
one grand blunder and labeled it "Re
gs," saying that he was sorry for the
he took in the "wah," and that a
ect, fiery hell was now burning his
soul and conscience. He further said
that he verily believed that if "Stone
wall" Jackson could be called back from
his "rest under the shade of the trees
across the river," he, too, would repent
Ie part he play* din the|Shenandoah
ey, at Bull lian, Harper's Ferry
■ freely acknowledged that he had
used an unholy cause, and that the
h could never have "founded a gov
eminent on cotton and niggers." These
two declarations cooked his dough.
Compared with these declarations, the
voice of the "carpoi-bagger" was as
music made by angilic fingers; Arnold,
the traitor, becomes a martyr to pat
riotism, and Judas Iscariot "au angel
of mercy on a mission of Love."
Woodstock, Va., Sept. 23.— The'
Richey scandal continues to excite the
people of this place. On Thursday a
deed of trust was admitted to record,

effects to Hon. E. D. Newman as!
trustee. The trust was signed by him
at York, Perm., on September 19th.
He also gave Judge Newman a power
of attorney, authorizing him to settle
up bis affairs. This, along with the
receiver, will simplify affairs, and per-1
mit the business to run in the endeavor l
to pay off the outstanding indebted j
ness, which now amounts to about}
$8,000. Richey continues to write to,
the young woman who was to meet j
him after lie left here, but his letters I
do not reach her as they are intercepted
by her parents.

negroes or whites blackened, effected
an entrance into Mr. Simms' residence,
and into the room where Mr. David
Appling was sleeping. The robbers
struck a match awakening Mr. Appiing.
They threw a chair at him and then
shot at him. Mr. Appling shot four
times at them, but, being dark his aim
went amiss, doubtless.
Mr. David W. Green while running a

penetrated the body near the armpit,
as it had blood on it to the extent of
eighth inches, when pulled out by Mr.

Met at Depot by the Stonewall
Band and 1,500 Citizens.
Not less than fifte<n hundred persons
went to the C, & O. depot to welcome
Company X (the West Augusta Guard)
I home Friday afternoon. Ths Stone
wall Band was ou ban 1 and played in
spirinz airs while the crowd waited
for the train, which was about thirty
minutes late. In tbe meantime stores
and business places had been de
corated with flags and bunting, and there
neyer was.a happier set of people, £11
Lw.ere smiles and all joined incongratu
| la^ious...».,.he-j-eturo'of o_r boys. .At
last,- the head of tbe engine was Seen
turning the curve beyond the Hospital
and a great cheer went up. In a few
minutes the train sped into the station
and in the rear car were tho boys—
browned, sturdy, splendid fellows, hard
ened by camp-life and in every way
ready to do battle in their country's
cause. They wore their full uniform
and were in heavy marching order,
with knapsacks, canteens and guns.
On reaching the platform friends rush
ed up and hugged and kissed many of j
them, and all had acquaintances who j
grasped their hands and gave them a
hearty shake. In a few moments they
were formed in line and headed by the
baud marched to Frederick street, I
thence up to Washington street, down
to Main to their old armory in the I. O. j
O. F., and after a few moments were
disbanded. Those who returned and j
were disbanded here were as follows :
Captain—R. H. Ker. j
Lieutenant —W. J. Perry. ■
Sergeants—Menefee, Weston, Elliott,
Quartermaster Sergeant—Brown.
Corporals—Black, Lambert, Braxton,
Rippetoe, Robinson, Harman, Danlap.
Privates—A'marode, Bartley, Bell,
Berry, Boyd, Corbio, Carroll, Collins,
Cooke, Cooper, Craig, Danner, Ess-man, t
Folly, Foster, Friend, fcHiyheart, Good
win. Hart, Henkle, Hulvey, Kennedy,
Kester, Kibler, Lackey, Lambert, May
bush, McClung, Morton, Noon, Oliver,
Olivier. Pates, Peaco, Peaco, Prince,
Proctor, Rice, Rodgers, Shuey, Shultz,
Smith, Woodson, Young.
As they marched, the effect of train
ing was very marked. Their step was
different from that unsteady, uninili
tary air, which men who have been only
casually in ranks always show. It was
stong, regular, aud fraught with that
power which is nowhere visible, save
and except in the trained soldier.
After they were disbanded those who
[ live in town went to their homes, others
went with friends, (all had friends.)
and everybody was delighted that so
many came safely back. AVhen they left
it was doubtful if more than a few
would return, but Corporal Ryan was
the only one whose death the company
and the community was called on to
Miss Myra Washington, of Jackson
ville, Fla., daughter ofthe Second Regi
ment of Virginia while in that city and
State Sponsor of Florida Sons of Con-,
federate Veterans at the Atlanta re
union writing to a friend here says:
"This past summer has been delightful
here in Jacksonville due of course to!
the soldier boys being here. The Sec
ond Virginia Regiment has decidedly
been the favorite, and has afforded the
people here more pleasure than any of
the othere. We certainly regretted
their leaving, for a finer lot of men
would be hard to find."
Tbe Harrisonburg Company at Home.
At 4:22 Friday morning the Harri
sonburg Guards arrived iv Staunton
over the C. & 0., went from there to the
B. & O. depot and took the 5:58 train
for home. Capt. O. B. Roller was in
charge and a cordial reception awaited
them. They were cheered on their ar
rival, the people having risen early in
expectation of their coming. They were
all in good health, and delighted at
again seeing their beautiful country
and the frowning peak of Old Massa
nutteu Mt. They lost two men by
death. j
