My stock this fall Is large, and includes
everything desirable in the Fertilizer Hue
and suited to our soils, and tire growth of

I sell uo goods except from the most relia

Some items in fertilizers are costing more
this season than for the last several years,
but I have overcome this trouble to a consid-1
erable extent by close and careful buying for
cash, ai.d in addition to this factor in the
farmers interest, I will sell at a small profit
for CASH and to regular lime buyers who
pay promptly when due.
My stock will consist of the best goods made,
in tine mechanical condition, and will be full
and well assorted early and late, and farmers
can get anything they want at any time in
season.
As profits will be short 1 must make the cost
of handling as small as possible, and will
therefore not be able to sell through agents
or to send out any one to canvass, and all
such unnecessary expenses will be saved by
those who buy directly from me.

Sen. Lee as a Peace Maker.
al Lee reached Richmond last
from Jacksonville, and will re
that city for a few days. It is
y those who claim to know that
ie is in Richmond he will try
1 the breach which exists be
ie officers of the 2nd Regiment |
vernor Tyler. This breach is j
very wide, for it is known that Gover
nor Tyler was on the eve of revoking
ler of the commissions of the!
regiment officers, because of
ss made upon him by those ofil
ch the governor should _____ in
jion bs subjected to, as he the
r, is commander in chief of
irginia troops by virture
office. The exact plan which
Lee will pursue is much in
doubt, but if the breach can be healed.
General Lee is more likely able to do it
Ry one else. As soon as the legi
disbanded the officers will be
alk, and it is likely some rather
remarks will be made. The
or some of them claimed to
have had a conversation with the gov
ernor in which he said he would recom
mend that the Second regiment be re
tamed and afterward acted differently.

to the materia], physical, intellectual
and spiritual condition, comparing the
present with the past and predicting
the future improvement of the human

the assertion that the three pillars of

Party to Black Rock Springs.
sville, Va., Sept. 21.--A num
e young people of this section
last Friday at 6a. m.< to visit
k_ Rock Springs. They wended
their way down Long Meadows, on by
Koiner's Store, admiring the skill of the
industrious farmers; thence among the
mountains admiring nature's beauty
and scenery, arriving at the springs
near noon. On securing a vacant cot
cottage with all tbe obtainable things
necessary for their comfort for the
night, lunch was served and enjoyed
by all. After spending the afternoon
iv viewing the lawns, springs, hotels,
ten-pin alleys, they spent a very pleas
ant night in slumbers and dreams,
arising in the morn intent on viewing
the noted Black Rock, several miles up
the mountains. It was noon before they
retraced their way to the springs. After
partaking of a sumptuous lunch and a
morning of pleasure they bid farewell to
the springs and reluctantly wended their
way homeward, making the courfe
down the mountain sides, up the river
bottoms aud far out into woodland coun
try, merry with fuu and frolic and
ringing with laughter and song. They
parted for their several homes, voting
the occasion a success, and to Miss Ber
nice Coiner, of Long Meadows, and Miss
Nettie Conrad, of Woodford Farm, they
all extend many thanks for the-r kind
invitations, to be a part of the merry
party.

Tragedy Near Lewisburg, W. Va.
North Caldwell who is in the city re
lated to us a tragedy which took place
near Lewisburg, W.Va., on Friday last.
A negro man named Henry Robinson.
who was raise 1 by the McOlungs, of
Greenbrier, but who claims to have been
away in the army, reached Greenbrier,
county on Thursday last and spent the
night with a colored family on Mr.
Caldwell's farm at Caldwell Station on
the C. &O. Tue next morning on leav
ing for Lewisburg, Robinson said he
was guing to Dr. P. Rucker's where his
(Robinson's) wife lived and would kill
his wife and Dr. Rucker and himself.
When he got to the home of Dr. Rucker
about half a mile from the limits of
Lewisburg, he called bis wile out but
found Dr. Rucker was not at home.
They sat down by the well and talked a
while, when Robinson drew a revolver
and killed the woman dead. He then
walked t. the house of a colored man
near by, and called him out and in the
presence of this colored man put the
pistol to his own head and killed him
self. The impression is that had Dr.
Rucker been at home he would have
killed him. Dr. Rucker is the father ot
Edgar P. Rucker, attorney-general of
West Virginia, and James T. Rucker,
Superintendent of the West Virginia
Institute for the deaf, dumb and blind.
Thf> cause of the tragedy is thought to
have grow.i ( ut of the fact that Mag
Robinson, the wife of Henry had in
stituted pr cetdiugs for a divorce from
Henry, aud Dr. Rucker who is a prac
tising lawyer at the Lewisburg bar was
her counsel.
