M.^ Holliday died at bin residence, on North Market street, Winchester, Monday morning at 8 30 o'clock. Present at his bedside when he passed away were hi* ulster, Mrs. Dr. G. F. Mason, his niece and nephew, Mrs. Gibson and Col. B. D. Gibson, of Charles Town, and his colored body ser vant, Elmer Thompson. The cause of ex Governor Holliday's death was due to a geueral breaking down of the system owing to advancing years and to a stroke of paralysis received about three year?* ago. About two weeks ago he suffered a slight relapPc and has been gradually sinking ever since, although he was con fined to his bed only during the past sev en days. He was unable to converse with those around him, although he was conscious until lie died. Membeta of the Winchester bar, Tur ncr Ashbv Camp, Confederate Veterans, the entire fire department, the city coun cil and other bodies will atteud the funer al, which will take place this afternoon at 8 o'clock from Christ Protestant Epis copal Church. Rev. .Tames Grammer will officiate and the interment will be in the family burial plot in Mount Heb ron Cemetery. Frederick W. M. Holliday was born in Winchester, February 22, 1828, and was a son of Dr. R. J. McK. Holliday, a well known physician. His paternal errand father, William Holliday, came from the North of Ireland, with his parents, at till age of fourteen years. They settled in Pennsylvania. He afterward located in Winchester. Governor Holliday's ma ternal grandfather. Dr. Samuel Taylor, was born in Dover, Del., and came to Virginia in 1797. Governor Holliday'* early lifo was spent at home in prepara tion for college. Later he entered Yale and was graduated with high honors in 1847. Returning to Winchester, he be gan the study of law with Messrs. Barton & Williams, geutlemen of high standing, and after one year with them he entered the University of Virginia, graduating in one sessiou in law, political economy, moral and mental philosophy, and was the final orator of the Jefferson Society of that institution. He was admitted to the Winchester bar, and shortly afterward was elected Commonwealth's attorney for all the courts of Winchester and Freder ick county, being re-elected continuously uutil the breaking out of the war, in 1861. At the beginning of hostilities he war offered the command of a newly formed infantry company, which he accepted, and at its head entered the line and rose to the rank of colonel of the Thirty-third Virginia Regiment, Stonewall Brigade, and was noted for his ability and gallantr ry. At the battle of Cedar Bun, in Au gust, 1862, he lost his right arm, which rendered him unfit for service longer in the field. He was then elected a member of the Confederate Congress from the Winchester district and continued such until the end of the war. On returning to his home at its conclu ? sion he returned also to his professional life and general studies, rising at once to the front of the bar, distinguished for its talent, culture and character. In 1876 ho was the commissioner from Virginia to the Centenuial Exposition at Philadelphra and was aluo appointed the same year elector at largo for the State n the presidential canvas. Ho was nominated fo'r Governor by the Democrats the following year and elected without opposition and entered upon the duties of that office January 7, }878 His public acts during his term of office, four years, were expressed chief ly through his inessngrs and vetoes, which, in the discussion of the State debt, defending and sustaining the public cred it, are regarded as papers of the highest order. His address of welcome at the Yorktown centennial, in 1881, by ap piontment from Congress, was masterly in conception and execution. Siuce the close of his term of office as Governor, not having returned to his pro feaHion, he spent much of his time in travel, visiting all the continents, and af terward making a tour around the world Governor Holliday's private and pub lic life, high sense of duty and honor, force of character, independence ot thought and action, thorough culture and sound judgment gave him a high rank as a man, a Christian, lawyer, scholar and statesman. Governor Holliday married Hannah Taylor, daughter of Thomas McGormick, of Clarke county, in 1868. She lived but a short time and left no issue. In 1S71 he married Caroline Calvert, daughter o! Dr. Richard H. Stuart, of King George county, Va. She also died and left an infant, which survived but a few weeks. Since the death of his brother, Dr. Tay lor S. Holliday, he has occupied his resi dence on Market, street alone, with the I exception of the companionship of his j.-lister, Mrs. Mason. The JIol iday man sion is plainly furnished, but contains many valuable paintings, curios, relics, etc., many of which were gathered by the ex Governor himself on his various tours abroad. Many prominent personages have benn entertained within its hospita ble walls, and the ex Governor's name has always hoen the synonym of cordial ity and kindly greeting. The funeral of ex-Governor Holliday took place at 3 o'clock Wednesday after noon from Christ Protestant Episcopal Church. The edifice was crowded with friends of the deceased, while in the vicinity of" the churcjh \yere hundreds of i people unable to gain admission. Turner j Ashby Camp, Confederate Veterans, of' which Governor Holliday was a member, attended the funeral in a body in full uni form, under Col. John J. Williams, and acted as a guard of honor. Jn line and escort ing the remains were the entire fire department, the City Council, School Board and Winchester Bar Association. At the church the acting rector, Rev. Dr. James Grammer, officiated, reading the Episcopal burial service. The interment was in the Holliday lot, in Mt. Hebron Cemetery. Attending the funeral from Charles Town were Dr. arid Mrs. G. F.

Geo. W. T. and Mn. Kears ley was celebrated at the residence of Mr. H. H. Cooke on South Mildn d street. The floral decorations of the house were pretty and profuse and appropriate.? During the houis of the afternoon and evening there was a continuous in-come and out go of friends?perhaps three hundred. Mrs. Cooke, Mrs. Wysong and Mrs. Caldwell, daughters of Major and Mrs. Kearsley, and Miss lCmily Cooke, stop granddaughu-r, assisted the venera ble couple to receive and greet the guests and gracefully and cordially dispensed the hospitalities of the home. Major and Mr9. Kearsley, though having reached eighty and seventy-five years, respective ly, had the appearance of having had their youth renewed?00 well preserved, so bright and hopeful were they after having enjoyed the felicities of a half century of happiness that comes of un questioned ailVction and devotion. Only on Saturday, Memorial Hay, Major Kearsley, though having reached the four score mark, paraded with the Confeder ate Veterans, and marched with as elas tic step and erect carringe as the young est of them. The fruits of the happy union of Fifty Years Ago are six daugh ters, married; three sons, two mar ried ; twenty two grandchildren and one great-grandchild. May they abide with u? to enjoy other anniversaries as pleas ant reminders of the auspicious yesterday. ? Freo Pre?s. Edwin W. Hoys. ? The Banking and Mercantile World for April contains sketches and portraits of representative bankers, from which we extract the following in regard to Mr. E. W. Hays, son-in-law of Cleon Moore, Esq., of this place: From his earliest manhood Edwin Wil lison Hays has devoted his attention ex clusively to financial, transactions, and his training as a youth on the threshold of a business career was gained in one of the prominent banking institutions of his native place. Mr. Hays was born March 6, 1846, in Louisville, Ky., and as a boy lie was educated in the public schools of that city. He was only 17 years of age when he obtained a position as messen ger in the First National Bank of Louis ville. With this institution he remained during the next fifteen years, ill the mean time reaching the grade of teller. His career as a banker was interrupted dur ing 1878 and 1S79 by his acceptance of tile post of Deputy Collector of Internal Revenue for the Louisville district, but after his term in this office had expired he again took up his profession and on March 30, 18S0, was appointed to the as sistant casliiership of the Bank of Ken tucky. In this position his natural abil ity and previous experience rendered him particularly efficient. His value to the institution was recognized in many ways, and 011 May S, 188S, a most substantial testimony to the esteem and confidence which he had won appeared in his elec tion to the office of cashier. He is also treasurer of the Kentucky Bankers' Asso ciation. The express oflice'in Khepherdstown was burglarized the first of the week and a num ber of packages of considerable value taken. Go to S.

CnAS. fCHUi-Ti!, Sec'y. From Rippon. Rii'pok, W- Va., jttuo 3. 1899. Dear Mr. Haines,?Since my last let ter the blizzard, the cold winds and win ter temperature have passed away, and with them several very dear friends have gone and are now resting on the eternal shores of time. Occasionally as I raise my eyes from my writing and behold the beautiful floral collection of ray help meet and enjoy their sweet fragrance, it makes me feel sad that they m c not here to help me enjoy them, and in order to rid myself of this gloom I will now tell you of a very interesting strawberry con test that took place between Messrs. H.W. Crittenden'and L. M. Long, of this place. Mr. Crittenden is one of our most exten sive farmers, and for several years has been raising about thirteen barrels of corn and thirty-three bushels of wheat per acre. This gave Mr. C. the idea that he was master of the vegetable kingdom. J-ast Friday evening he and Mr. Long were sitting on Mr. Weist's porch. Mr. C. was telling about a strawberry he had grown the past season, which, when measured by Mr. R. L. Wire and E. R. Myers was found to be 7$ inches in cir cumference. Mr. Long said "I think 1 can beat yot, ihjs reason," Mr. C, said "Long, I'll tail you what I'll do. I'll bring up a quart of my berries in the morning: you bring a quart of yotirs, and the man who has the finest gets the other's berries and hat, the loser to go home bare headed." Long agreed t6 take the deal, and on Saturday morning Mr. C. presented his berries to the judges ?Mp. and Mrs. C. M. Weist. and E. 15. Myers. Lcng did not preseut his berttos until evening, and as soon as Mr. Weist saw them he went running to Mrs. Weist. and said " Long's got him." We under stand that Long fell over one of the ber ries in his patch and was not able to get about for a day. They are the largest ever seen in this part or the country. When Mr. 0- saw Long's berries he was amazed, and surrendered his berries with, out a word. He did not surrender his hat and go home bareheaded, as it was a little late, but we know that Mr. C. will fulfill this part of the contract in the next few days. Hoping you will enjoy your welt attho picnics this summer, 1 am, as ever, Yours, &c., Jim Skimmerhorn.
