SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON.
Cuahi.es Town, Izvrcuson Codhtt, W. Va. TUB3DAT MORNING, DECKMBEK8.1601. BQf-The SrmiT of Jefferson will be sent to new subscribers from now until January 1st, 1893, for the j>rice of one year's subscription. CRISP SPEAKER != The contest in the ITouse Demo cratic caucus was lirougbt to a close last night by the election of Hon. Chas. F. Crisp, of Georgia, Speaker; James Iverr, of Pennsylvania, Clerk ; ex-Congressman Samuel S. Yoder, of Ohio, Sargeant-at-arms ; and cx-Con gressman Charles H. Turner, of New York, Doorkeeper. Congress convened yesterday. Congressman Wilson voted for Mills for speaker. yy Dora Pedro, ex-Emperor of Brazil, died in Paris last Friday. Mr. Cleveland expressed himself as favorable to the selection of lion. Win. L. Wilson for speaker. \ Senator Faulkner has moved to Washington and during the sitting of congress will reside corner 19th and R streets. Judge Daniel B. Lucas and Mr. J. Fairfax McLaughlin have jointly en tered on an original literary work? short,sketches of persons, incidents and places that have helped to make or are identified with American his tory, called the "Hour Glass Series." A mail giving the name of D. H. Wilson obtained admittance to the office of Russell Sage, the millionaire broker, in New York Friday, on the plea of private business, and imme diately demanded that $1,200,000 be paid to him by Mr. Sage at once.? Mr. Sage sought to get rid of the man by asking him to call again,when the visitor threw a dynamite bomb against the wall. It exploded with terrific force, wrecking the office and blowing the thrower and three other persons to pieces. Mr. Sage was slightly injured. Several others were badly hurt. A National Bank, capital 8100,000, has just been established at Blueficld, Mercer county, this Slate, with Col. Samuel Walton, well known and highly regarded here, as its president. The Bluefield Exponent refering to this matter says : "Very able and experienced men have been choscn as officers and di rectors. Mr, Samuel Walton is pres ident. President Walton is a man of very high standing in both business and social circles, and is acknowl edged to be pre-eminently well fitted for the responsible position to which he has been assigned by vote of the shareholders." Before we shall issue another paper the Speakership of the House of the U. S. Congres will be settled. All those in the fight for the place are good, strong men, who would give dignity to the position. Some one must be the victor and the Blade does hope that XV. L. Wilson, of West Virginia, will be the choice of the House. Ilis scolarly attainments, his cool bead, bi3 mastership of parlia mentary law, well fits him for the place, aud his selection we believe would smooth over the sore places the struggle for the position has made. He has kept himself outside all fac tions, his position bus been one of dignity and fairness, which commends him to consideration. Should he not be made speaker, he must be chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. His thorough knowledge ?f the tariff question entitles him to this position. Let who ever it may, be speaker, he will make a mistake if W. L. Wilson is not given the chairmanship of this important committee.?Goshen Blade. Hon. W. L. Wilson addressed the' Carpenters' and Joiners' Union of Charles Town at the Court-house on Monday night, according to appoint ment. Mr. Thomas Cockrill presided over the meeting and Rev. II. P. Hamill offered pra3*er. Mr. Wilson ?who might have been engaged, like several of his associates in Congres sional and party leadership, in "hust ling" for the Speakership?congratu lated himself on the opportunity to talk to his people at home and to dis cus non-political questions. His theme was labor organization. After brief allusion to the history of benev olent and labor organizations of ear lier times, he explained the necessity for united action on the part of work ingmen in order to meet on an equal footing, and enter without disadvan tage into contract with, the great cor porations and combinations of capital which have made possible the wonder ful changes in industrial life in the past quarter of a century. Mr. Wil son read and approved the objects of the Carpenters' and Joiners' Union, and advised, in concluding his ad dress, that the additional hours of leisure for which they properly asked should be used for mental improve ment, saying that there was no reason why a carpenter should not be as well read as a lawyer or doctor. He fur ther suggested that they should en deavor?even if some self-denial were involved?to lay up something for the future and secure what would give them credit and standing in the com munity; and eloquently insisted that the man is greater than his work, and that the organization would accom plish its highest aims in elevating its members intellectually, socially and morally. The Charles Tpwn Cornet Band was on hand aud played before pud after the address,?Free Press. Caution I A few weeks ago a Band was or ganized at Mannings, and some un scrupulous persons have taken ad vantage of the fact and taken to pro miscuous begging on the reputation of the Band. We announce for the protection of those who feel kindly toward us and for the reputation of the Band that no one was authorized to receive aught for us, and that those who have kindly Riven anything have been vic timcd to the extent of what they meant for us. We have selected Thos. J. Dillow (one of the Band) as the one to re ceive anything kindly offered by the good people for the benefit of the Band, and forbid ail others from ask ing or receiving anything. To those who have been victimized we tender grateful thanks, believing their offering was made in good faith and best wishes for our success.? The efficient instructor, Lou J. Rus sell, of Loudoun, is now at work teaching the boys how to toot. E. B. Johnson, President of Band. Makes the Weak Strong The marked benefit which people In run down or weakened state of health derive from Hood's Sarsaparilla, conclusively proves the claim that this medicine " makes the weak strong.'1 It does not act like a stimulant, imparting fictitious strength from which there must follow a reaction of greater weakness than before, but in the most natural way Hood's Sarsaparilla overcomes that tired feel ing, creates an appetite, purifies the blood, and, in short, gives great bodily, nerve, mental and digestive strength. Fagged Out 14 Last spring I was completely fagged out. My strength left me and I felt sick and mis erable all the time, so that I could hardly attend to my business. I took one bottle of Hood's Sarsaparilla, and it cured me. There is nothing like it." B. C. Begole, Editor Enterprise, Belleville, Mich. 44I derived very much benefit from Hood's Sarsaparilla, which I took for general debility. It built me right up, and gave me an excel lentappetitc." Ed. jExnrKS.Mt. Savage,Md. N. B. If you dcclde to take Hood's Sarsa parilla do not bo induced to buy anything else instead. Insist upon having Hood's Sarsaparilla Bold by alt druggists. Sl;aIxforg5.

In fact, we all agree that it is the only really family magazine published, as we have sent for samples of all of them, and find that one is all for men, another all for women, and another for children only, while this one suits every one of us; so we only need to take one instead of several, and that is where tho economy comes in, for it is only $2.00 a year.
