The contrivance is a small arrangement that may be carried in a hand satchel with other things and will weigh only a few I pounds.

A very pleasant feature of the occasion was the sinsHnchv fn -i e Rev. W. Ii. Moncurv, ^e family of Honor Worthily Bestowed. A Tribute to That Princely Ex-Confederate SoUlier, Charle* Broadvcay Rout*. Capt. John C. Capers, in his oration on the occasion of the unveiling of the monument to the South Carolina dead in Stonewall Cemetery, Winchester, on the 6th of June, said: 41 And here to-day, at Winchester, this graceful shaft, and all the work necessa ry foj its completion, was begun, con tinued and ended either by the actual ef fort or by the inspiration of you noble women. That princely ex-Confederate soldier Charles Broadway Rouss. placed his generous contribution for this monu ment in the hands of the women who had begun this noble work, and in so doing paid his double tribute to their love and loyalty and to the courage and character of those who had, with him, endured the siege of war for conscience sake. There i* no boiler spot of ground Thnu where defeated valor lien. By mourning beauty crowned ! And just here let me digress to say that it is apparently an inexplicable provision of Providence t?at this generous ex-Con federate soldier, Mr. Rouss, has been de prived of his sight just at a time when he could see that graceful shaft, to the erec tion of which he so largely contributed ; at a time when he could start at the home of his adoption in New York and go all the way to the Gulf and see the evidences of his grand and unparalleled generosity; the evidences of his noble appreciation of his comrades standing out clear and bright as those evidences would in the battle abbeys, memorials and monuments erected to their memory, to which he has contributed. But this act of Providence, seemingly so harsh, falls more lightly on the patriot Rouss, because with him it is not only through the eye that he can see. A heart so generous and true, a soul so full of inspiration as his, penetrates the darkness his closed eyes make, and through the eye of the heart and the eye of the soul he sees and feels and knows that this monument and all the others stand out to exemplify the noble purposes of his fallen comrades and their wives and mothers. Mr. Charles Rissler has purchased the handsome hearse and undertaking outfit of Mr. Lewis Starry, and will open busi ness here in a few days. Mr. Rissler's embalming diploma is on exhibition in the show window of Mr. C. N. Beard. The large balloon of Prof. McDade, connected with Welsh Bros.' Shows, took fire on the occasion of his ascension here last Thursday, and he was thereby com pelled to cut his parachute loose and de scend much sooner than he would other wise have done.

I wish to inform my friends and the public generally that 1 have moved in the I new room now being fitted up for me in the Hagley building (a few doors from ' Racket store) about April 1st. I antici pate a very large spring trade, and will use my best efforts to rajse and maintain the standard of custom garment making to the highest level possible, in order to counteract the many spurious imitations ot legitimate tailoring that have been foisted upon th^ public. As to my new samples for the coming season, it is hardly necessary for me to dwell 011 them. All I can say is that I used the very best ability and matured experience in select ing a complete assortment of styles and qualities. I promise you alio jn the fu ture, as in the past, the same courteous ani} liberal treatment, and last, but not least, a perfect fit. Yours* &c., 9. E. Reinjkger. Duty ot Rich Men. Senator S. B. Elkins, in his address before the West Virginia Editorial Association at its recent meeting, gave expression to a sensible view of the use of riches, saying: " In all good things and in moral prog ress the world is constantly advancing. It is said the great Roman Empire, wnen it controlled the world, had not a hospital within its wide borders, while hospitals, asylums and charitable institutions are on every side and constantly increas ing in all civilized States. While it has been the era of accumulation of vast wealth in individual hands, yet rich men, with gaining riches, have learned wise lessons. They are learning that they should largely hold their wealth in trust for the common good, that best use to makeof it is to help their fellow man, the weak and the unfortunate; this has come about in obedience to the teachings of Christianity, the general diffusion of knowledge and?an educated self-interest. It is fast coming into the minds of the rich that not only the best thing to do with wealth is to make use of it to benefit m'ankind. but the best time to do this is in the full tide of life, when the appro priation of it to such purposes can be made under the supervision of the owners and bring them the pleasure that follows giving and good deeds."

The funeral services occurred from the residence of the father of the deceased on Thursday morning last at ten o'clock.? The circumstances leading to the death of the deceased are ol the most painful charac ter- Some two months ago, while she and her two small children were the only occu l^nt-sof her house. In vicinity of Winches ter, her clothing caught fire from an open fire. In a heroic, courageous ellort, she ex tinguished the llames, and though burned to the waist, it was thought that the injury was not of a significantly serious character. In a short time, however, it was developed that the burns wore deeper than at firat ap peared, and since that, it has simply been a battle between vitality and death, attended with a physical torture which was. as excru ciating to the patient as it was harrowing to her loved ones. Nature at last surrendered, after a prolonged struggle, and death came as a relief to patient and watchers. The de ceased is survived by a husband and two small children, who will mourn the loss of the best friend Heaven ever bestows upon mortals. Of ^singularly sweet and amiable disi>osition, unselfish and devoted, to the highest inspiration ot wife and motherhood, the vacant chair in this little home circle is hallowed by sweet memories which will crown it with Influences time cannot dissi pate.
