Children Cry ter Dr. J. V. Simmons passed peacefully a»ay Tuesday morning. He had been an invalid for years past, more or less, but ill, at times painfully ill, for some months and the object of careful watching and the most kindly ministrations of wife, daughter, son and friends. He fell asleep—apparently only a quiet and peaceful slumber—Monday night, but he did not awake again. His spirit had taken its flight to the brighter beyond, for which he was, doubtless, pre pared. Dr. Simmons was a native of Mary land. Charles Town was his adopted home immediately after the war. Thence for ward, as health would permit, he entered into enterprises calculated toadvauce the public good. In a true sense he was a public-spir ited mau. Whilst improving his own prop erty he accelerated movements tending to ; eub&nce value* in his own immediate vi ciuity. For)ears he pursued the practice of his profession—dentistry. Later he was au official in the Nalioual Bauk. He was a man of culture—bad a foudness for the arts and sciences, and especially was devoted to j mechanics and had more than common iu I veutive genius. He was a social man, had ! many frieuds in consequence thereof, and was eutertaining in conversation by reason | of his general knowledge. He also served •* ior >1 .is ..nyor of the town. Wife, son i auU daughter survive him. The funeral ' services will be in Zion Episcopal Church this afternoon at 3 o'clock. We acknowledge from Secretary G. Ju lian Pratt, of the Baldwin District Fair As sociation at Staunton an invitation to at tend the 26th annual exhibition on the 3rd, 4tb, 5th and 6th instaut. On the 5th (to morrow) there will bo a reunion of the “Stonewall Brigade”—Col. H. J. Williams, the gallant commander ot the 5th Virginia, and the survivois of that regiment, having made arrangements to receive their com rades of ’61-’65. The Stonewall Band will supply the music. The following paragraph concluded the cordial invitation : “I hope to have the pleasure of your presence, and that you will convey 10 an surviving comrades the invitation and as sure them of a hearty welcome.” Upon opening the aforesaid letter we fouud in our presence a group of four old soldiers aud then aud there delivered the message—four men who wore the grey with honor to the Confederacy and credit to them selves from beginning to end of the strug gle, to-wit: Col. R. P. Chew, Capt. M. H. Rouss, and Messrs. Isaac Strider and Jame9 Trussell. To comrades whom we will not have the opportunity in person to deliver the invitation we say, go, if you can, with an assurance of a most hospitable reception. We hope to be there. Railroads will give special rates. Col. Geo. W. Shutt. well known to many of our county people, died suddeuly on Sunday last as his home, “Leslie Hall,” in Loudoun couuty, Virginia. He was born in Loudoun county sixty years ago, but wheu young moved to Springfi Id, 111. In Springfield he studied law in the office of Stephen A. Douglas, aud after being admit ted to the bar was associated with political leaders of Illinois in their movements. He was counsel for the Pennsylvania Railroad io the west, and was also interested in the organization of the Springfie^ a**d North western Railroad. Mr. Shutt was the first to introduce street cars in Springfield.— About 1850 he went to St. Louis, where for a number of years lie was engaged in the wholesale drug business. At the close of the civil war he went to Washington and was connected with the geological survey uuder Major Powell. He is said to have been instrumental in organizing that de partment. About three years ago he retired to his home at “Leslie Hall.” He leaves a widow and one son. His widow was a ] . rtf I l>A lain T AifOtS Ou Klim n F tills ---o---' county. He was twice married—his first wife a sister of Mr. Logan Osburn. He was a prolific writer. It is tbe purpose of the friends of the late Capt. James W. Thomson, of this county, the successor of Col. R. P. Chew in the command of tbe famous Chew battery, and who was killed in front of Petersburg April 7th, whilst leadiug a cavalry charge, to erect a monument over his remains at Winches ter. Turner Ashby Camp of \ eteraus at Winchester has the matter in charge and is receiving contributions for said object. Mr. C. B. Rouss, of New York, a member of that camp, so far is the largest contributor. A good soldier hiutself, a friend of Thomson and having personal knowledge of his pri vate worth as well as soldierly qualities, is .prompt to manifest his appreciation and to help perpetuate the memory of his distin guished comrade. We append his unique note: “In reply to your favor I enclose U my chek. Por dear Jim Thomson, I knu him wel. He was kild the last day of the war. A braver boy never stood in Shoe Lether. With best wishes. R.” The check was for $100. Others who may have the desire coupled with the ability to contribute to this fund cau address James W. Barr, treasurer of Ashby Camp, Win chester, Va. __ Mr. James M. Mason, Jr., has returned from a tour through West Virginia on legal business undertaken at the request of As sistant Attorney-general Holmes Conrad for the department of Justice. Mr. Mason, having visited nearly all the principal cities and towns of the State, is firmly of opinion that Charles Town is to be preferred to any other—not only because it is home, sweet home, but for other substantial reasons also. And, by the way. he hasn't at any time entertained the slightest idea of leav j iug town permanently or giving up or neg j lecling his law practice here on account of h s engagement with Major Conrad. The N. A W. advertises a special train from Front Royal to Hagerstown October i 12th. It will leave Charles Town at 8:44. Returning leave Hagerstown at 5:30 p. m.

Our friend Haines, of the Spirit, is always wroue when he gives an item of news. It was the foreman of the Advocate office who broke down the bench at the Methodist cor ner-stone laying. The only reason Haines’s seat didn’t give way was because he sat on the corner-stone, and thus lost the opportu nity to get the pavement he has beeu clam oriug for.—Advocate. Oh, pshaw ! Haines never loses on opportunity to get his West End paved. Our enterprising and progressive old friend, Mr. W. F.

In conjunction with this he has just finished a reservoir which holds eleven thousand gallons of water, and has it on an elevation sufficient to deliver pure spring water in every room in his house.— This is a progressive age and friend Weirick leads the procession.—Advocate. The following appeared as a communica tion in the Rockingham Register: “Notic ing quite recently several articles upon the present condition of the couuty jail, and being desirous of ascertaining the true con dition of the various jails in the valley, we made a careful and uobiased investigation of the jails at Charles Town, W. Va., and Harrisonburg and Woodstock, Va. We found the jail at Charles Town in first-class condition. The cells large, well ventilated, neat and clean, with uo offensive odor aris i ing. Clean cots for the prisoners; floors kept scrubbed and clean, and, in fact, it re minds the visitor almost of his own room. ! ‘I keep the cells in the same neat condition as I do my own room,’ was the remark of Jailor Young as we left, and their condition I fully bears him out."

Dorsey, died at the residence of her mother, Mrs. Mary E. Dor sey, in this place, last Friday morning, in the 30th year of her age, of dropsy.

Tbe funeral services were held iu the Pres byterian Church Saturday afternoon, and were conducted by Rev. H. P. Hatnill, who paid a beautiful tribute to the patience of the departed and her faith in the God of love. She was a consistent member of the M. E. Church, South, from childhood. Three children survive her—one a babe of eight months. __ Why should our citizens patrouize the parapetetic dealers iu men’s clothes, or women’s either, when in their own midst they have tax-paying, industrious, energetic and obliging persons engaged in the same business—and who have ability to give us fashionable fits, substantial and stylish fib rics and at as reasonable cost? The inquiry suggested itself to us by a placard at a public place announcing men’s suits at §15 up; pant*, $5 up. Why, those figures ought not to mislead intelligent people. Our esteemed friend Reiuinger can do the same and better. He can give you the choice goods of tbe industrious world, and all be makes above cost is spent within tbe com munity in which you live. Nothing makes a room look more shabby than worn out window shades ; and nothing enhances tbe appearance of a room more than pretty new ones. It show* good bouse management to have good window shades, yet some people will worry through years with old shades that are a disgrace to tbe furniture uf a room. Beard, the stationer, has made a reduction iu shades made to or der, and he will measure your windows and put up the shades without extra charge; and when you have them they will be good aud nice too, Married September 27th, 1893, at the res idence of the bride, in Stephen’s City, \ a , by Rev.
