It strikes me the for mer is a skilled marksman, hitting the bull’s eye every shot.” Referring to the numer ous calls recently upon Rev. J. P. Stump to serve in other pulpits than his own, he says: "I sorter think the Methodists here have the most popular man in all the range." He also, in his interesting letter, tells why Rev. Mr. Cole, of the Baptist Church, is “the happiest man in Charles Town." He also commends Mr. Carrel!, of the Carter House bar, for his strict observance of the Sunday laws regarding his business, and also for attending church with his good Presbyterian wife. He might have gone farther and named others in that business who go to church with their wives and also put seals to their business house doors ou the Sabbath —seals that are unbroken when Monday morning dawns. “Human progress. What is it. anti how is human success achieved?” Those who braved the intense cold of last Thursday eveuing to hear the lecture of Rev. J. P. Stump—delivered for the Men's Reading Room—were richly rewarded. It was an admirable performance. As he had prepared a talk principally for men and found that it must be addressed mainly to women, he concluded it was a “misfit” lec ture. Well, in a sense it was, for it suit-ed the Misses excellently,—and all others pres ent as well. The lecture was intellectual, practical, well-pointed with anecdote and delivered in good voice by the genial, ear nest and popular speaker He was felici tously introduced by Rev. L»r. Hopkins, and had an audience that could and did appre ciate the whole of his hour and a half dis course, in which there was not a dull sen tence, and he received the siucere congrat ulations of all present. The sale of some of the property of the Charles Town Mining, Manufacturing and Improvement Co. w as affected at public auc tion on Saturday. Fifty acres on the re mote end of the Ranson farm was sold to Mr Jno. C. Burns, for $33.03 per acre, and 2'‘>7 lots an 1 7 small vacaut tracts brought $13,000. The latter was purcbashed bv a syndicate of some of our most enterprising citizens. These sales will, we are informed yield enough to pay the Gaither lieu of $12, UOo and interests, and reduce the balance due Ranson’s executors to near $-3,000, which it is proposed to secure on the Hotel Pow hatan, thus virtually releasing all of the company’s land north of the town from in cumbe ranees. If we could irat e Dyspepsia to its source, it would lead back to our kitchens In fact, the secret of good health is good cooking. If w ell cooked foot Is are partially digested if poorly cooked, they are less digestible than in their raw- state. If you area victim of faulty cook ing, that is, if you suffer from Dyspepsia, the rational cure must be looked for in an arti ficially digested food, and a food which will, at the same time aid the digestion of other r .4 CtistVi .a inn virtu*) IV rests the tired digestive organs, thereby restoring them to their natural strength. The Digestive Cordial, as prepared by the Shaker- of Mount Lebanon, is just such a preparation. and a single 10 cent bottle will convince vou of its value.

Several days ago Senator Faulkner wrote a letter in which he took grounds against the proposition to hold a Democratic pri mary in West Virginia for the nomination of candidates for State offices. “The ques tion,” said Senator Faulkner, “should be not who wants the several offices, but who, in the aggregate judgmeut of the accredited representatives of the paity, sent immediate ly from the people, would be the strongest candidates f->r the respective offices for which they would be nominated.” Senator Faulk ner makes the further point that “it would be impossible, under the primary system, to make a fair and equitable representation upon the State ticket of all sections of the State, which is one of the most essential ele ments in producing harmony and unity of purpose in the organization.” There’s practical business sense in what the Senator said. Special.—We have just closed out from a retiring manufacturer about 275 pairs of men’s pants.

Senator Tillman, of South Carolina, was at the Marlborough House in New York on Monday and returned to Washington at night. He said ho came for the sole pur pose of studying the financial conditions in Gotham, and especially in Wall street, and added: “I have use for all the information I can get here relative to financial matters, and I expect to go to the bottom. I do not care to skim the surface and get a smatter ing. Later on, when I am fully posted, I expect to say something, but for the present I shall keep quiet.” He was a “smart Aleck” to get to the bottom of information aneut financial matters in asingleday. As the present is all that we mortals are sure of it is gratifying to know that “for the present Senator Tillman will “keep quiet.” Ex United States Senator Henry G. Da vis, of West Virginia, in New York last week is quoted as saying : “I think that we are going to have better times, but in some instances there is a desire to jack things up too quickly. The ultimate result of the bond sales will be good, but matters have not taken a sufficiently definite turn yet for us to look for rainbows or build castles in the air. Railroad earnings, however, are betteriug, and the iron trade, which is the index to all, is flourishing, prices increasing and the demand good. We may assume that the industrial future is to bo bright.” Mrs. Mary Ellen Lease begins her pulpit career by calling the President of the l nited States “a Satan worshipper.” She is using the same means as Senator Tillman to at tract attention. It should be remembered that the office, if not the man, should com mand universal respect. The President of ' the United States is the chosen chief of the ' greatest Republic on earth, and no matter | what diflerences of opinion there may be j as to Mr. Cleveland, there should be but one as to this cheap denunciation of the Presi dent, and that one condemnation.

Dannridge of this county for Governor of West Virginia, with whom its editor served in the Legislature, and whom he endorses as qualified in all respects for that high and honorable posi tion. Probably no public man—barring, possi bly, President Cleveland—has ever been more shamefully Rnd unjusitly abused and blackguarded than has Secretary Carlisle for bis labors in connection with the recent bona issue.— Wheelin'] Register.
