It is charged that about two months ago he, with two other persons. entered the hou?e, bound Morgan and his wife and daughter and demanded of tbcni all tne inouey they had.

The severe drought in this section was broken by a heavy storm 011 Friday morn ing last, which not only brought a re freshing rain, but did much damage through the electric current as well, lightning entered the new telephone ex change at the north end of Lawyer's Row, (room owned by Col. Forrest W. Brown,) and everything connected there with was burned out. The fire department responded promptly, and the remainder of the building?in which is included the valuable faw library, rooms of Mr. Geo. T. Light, Western Union Telegraph of fice, office of Justice C. Frank Gallaher. and law offices of Capt. George Baylor. McDonald and Beck with, Judge D. B. Lucas and J. F. Engle?was saved. A remarkable feature of the fire was that Lawyer Fngle's fixtures were taken out and returned intact?not even his pipe being shaken from the top of a portable book-case. This can only be explained upon the theory that there was not an upper story in the building from which to throw the articles, instead of carefully carrying them out. The flagstaff sur mounting the tower of the Hotel Powha tan was struck, and some shingles ripped off. and slight damage done to the B. & O. telegraph offie and residence of Dr. W. F. Lippitt. In the country lightning struck the barn on the farm of Miss Mary Y. K. Beall, near Zoar. and destroyed the barn and contents, consisting of sev eral tons of hay, about 300 bushels of wheat, a lot of harness and a calf, which belonged to Mr. John F. Ware, tenant. Two head of cattle belonging to Mr. L. R. Huyett, two belonging to Mr. W. II. Baldwin, one belonging to Maj. R. V. Shirley, and one belonging to Mr. Jos. F. Painter, were killed. Mr. Rousa As Arbiter. [From Ibo WincticFtor Star-1 Mr. Charles B. Rouss has again dem onstrated his affection for Winchester in giving the town a princely sum of money for the erection of a municipal building.. To detail his many gifts to Winchester and to charitable objects, both of a pub lic and private character, would be reit eration, and to laud his philanthropy would be useless since all who know his name, and these are legion, know also his generous impulses. Mr. Rouss' fame as a merchant and millionaire is wide and great, but it is his character that always couples his name and thatof generosity and philanthropy in the minds of all. He has been lavish in his benefactions to Winchester and the reason he ascribes is that he loves the people here. It can be said here that the attention which the press accord his philanthropy has never in the slightest degree been suggested by him, but on the other hand he has often said that the newspapers gave him too much praise? that he did not deserve, and he has al ways modestly thanked the newspapers for their kindly expressions toward him. In his communication to the City Coun cil offering them thirty thousand dollars, the whole of the letter breathes of the spirit of peace, love and good will. In speaking of the suit between the town and county which is tearing asunder the hitherto close relations of the two sec tions, Mr. Rouss says, "These questions * * * only breed bad feeling among a set of people I love and who ought sure ly to love each other." And again he savs in speaking of his proposed plan of settlement, "but peace and friendship will be restored between all you good people, for the cause of discontent will then have been removed, and both par ties will be in far better condition tlirn they are now or it is possible for any de cree of court to put them." Such sentiments as these could only have been uttered by a man who really and sincerely loved the people of whom he was speaking. Here were two com munities engaged in an unnatural strug gle for the possession of a bit of land Enmity and. as Mr. Rouss says, bad feel ing, was rampant and this would have amounted to the most virulent hate by the decision of the court later on. Mr. Rouss eomes in as an arbiter and peace maker?not with any theory to advance in settling the difficulty?but with a plain, practical plan, backed"up by his own money, and asks that the two sections accept it. If love and affection did not prompt the gift what motive could have suggested it? Certainly not the so-called "free advertising." for if any man has ever suffered as the result of his charity that man has been Mr. Rouss. Wlien this latest gift of his gets known through out the country he will be the recipient of a fresh influx of letters begging for all sorts of objects and from all sorts of peo ple. If this is the "advertising" that some refer to. M r. Rouss would have long ago been taught the lesson that even charity has its drawbacks. But he has not consulted selfishness in the matter, and so in ascribing to him the qualities which are his by proven right, we are only paying some slight tribute to a man who stands preeminent for noble impulses and for philanthropy. The Lawson Hotts Chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy will meet in Rouss Ilall Thursday. Aug. io, at 10:30a. m. Mrs.C.N.Coleman, Sec'y Fortunately for the sufferers, most of the losses by lightning last week were covered by insurance with Messrs. Wash ington & Alexander, viz: Barn of Miss Mary Y. K.

The Third Annual Epworth League and Sunday School Convention convened in Mr. J. B. Watson's grove, near Mid dleway, July 27. The services were well attended and the crowd on Sunday the largest ever seen in the little town, de spite the threatening state of the weather in the early part of the day. Many min isters and laymen took part, and several addresses were made by Rev. W. F. Locke, of Washington City, Rev. I. G. Michscl, of Linden, Va., and Dr. Bond. Also by Rev. L. R. Milbourne, of Charles Town, Revs. Kibler and Hesser, of Shep hardstown and Brucetown, respectively; Rev. A. H. Green, of Middleway, and Messrs. Heidwohl and Swimley. The music was unusually good, and the reci tations were well rendered.and thorough ly enjoyed by all. The expressions of all present were favorable, and the pas tor, as well as members of the League, feel that much good was accomplished by the series of services. ? Mrs. Catharine Wiest died at her home in Gerardstown Sunday, June iSth, aged O3 years 11 months and 23 days. Her life was a benediction in the home and community, nurturing and Tdaring the children God gave her in the ways of the Lord. From early childhood she was a member of the church, uniting with the same at her parental home in Pennsyl vania. Moving to Gerardstown, this county, she united with the Lutheran church, of which she was a devoted mem ber. She is spoken of as a good woman ! and her children rise up and call her blessed. The funeral services were held in the Presbyterian church in Gerards town, Rev. C. S. Trump, of Martinsburg. officiating, assisted by Rev. Mr. White, of i the Presbyterian church. All of herchil | dren were present and a large assembly of 1 relativesand friends followed her remains ; to the grave.?Berkeley Democrat. [Deceased was the mother of Mr. C. M. i Wit st, merchant ?t Rippon, this county.] BMggg~??PP ? A r UIM I.ILIUi. Beware of Pood Samples. Quite recently in New York two deaths occurred from poisoning by the use of powders .sent to the victims by mail. In Leavenworth, Kans., the other day nearly every doctor in town was called to attend the children who had gathered up, eaten, and been made ill by samples of an article left at houses by canvassers for advertis ing purposes. Alum baking powders have always been favorite articles for this sampling business. Yet there is nothing more liable to lead to danger than the practice of using the various samples of baking powder left at the doors. They are pre sented by irresponsible parties, in appear ance are not distinguishable from arsenic, and indeed, in Indiana some time since one package was found, after it had caused the death of the housewife, to have been mixed with that poison. It is safer to refuse all samples of food or medicine offered at the door. Pure cream of tartar baking powders sell upon their merit"!, and are never peddled or sampled. Grand Tournament.

What Not to Soy. Do not say, "I can't eat." Take Hood's Sarsaparilla and say, "I am hungry all the time, and food never hurts me." Never say to your friends that you are as tired in the morning as at night. If they happen to be sharp they will tell you Hood's Sarsaparilla cures that tired feeling. Do not say, "My face is full of pim ples." You are quite likely to be told by someone, "There's no need of that, for Hood's Sarsaparilla cures pimples." It is improper and unnecessary to say. " My health is poor and my blood is bad." Hood's Sarsaparilla will give you good blood, and good health will follow as a natural consequence.

A Fairy-land Carnival for his Little Friends Without doubt John Robinson's tran sccndently grand and magnificent show is the children's paradise, whethertliey be the heirs to fortune or to years of grinding la bor. The very air seems laden with sooth ing perfumes, the music liath the charms of sweet strains in fairy-land, and the place itself is enchanted. If to those children who have had much it is all this, how much more it is to those who have nothing! Imng ination colors all with the joyous coloring that vanishes with childhood. To the little miss in neat dress and dainty hat, and to the little lad with patch on pants and well worn cap, it is equal to a magic realm of Arabian Knights wonders, pleasures and surprises. John Ilobinson bears much the same re lationship to bright, pushing, curious, irre pressible childhood that Santa Claus does to the world at large. The children look npon him with commingled wonder and affection as the veritable sovereign of fair-land, and he reciprocates their confidence and regord ? in right royal fashion. He says that "a happy child is the most likely to make an honest man," and carries out his theory by fairly overwhelming hi* little friends with innocent fun, wonder and delightful instruc tion. To please them in the pet hobby of his old age, and the energy and ingenuity he displayes in that direction is simply marvel ous. lie collects great companies of clowns caravans, cavalcades, and aviaries of birds, wild beasts,horses and ponies.for that special purpose. There is a most uproarious carni val of two and four legged grotesques; fools in motly fur and leathers; a hairy, dwarf elephant riding a bicycle; trick seals, zebras, dogs ponies, pigs, bears, fclieep, oxen, goats, roosters, pigeons, pelicans, monkeys, and other beasts and birds, besides all the amas ing performance-) in mid-air, in the circus rings and 011 the elevated Olympian stages; the real ltoman hypodrome; the stupendous, gorgeous and thrilling scenes in the sublime ly grand spectacular, biblical drama of King Solomon, his Temple and the Queen of Slieba, indisputably the grandest scenic pro duction of the age, with its beautiful cos tuming, magnificent trapping and appropri ate ballet. The combined entertainment constituting the most instructive and amus ing exhibition for both old and the young ever witnessed in the world. But are we notallchildren when Robinson comes? Will exhibit in Charles Town, Saturday, Aug. 19. Taylor?Moore. Miss Kliaabcth Ruth Taylor, daughter of Mm. Eleanor Taylor and the late Caleb 8. Taylor, were married Thursday afternoon at C o'clock to Mr. Gerard Davis Moore. ex County Clerk of Jcflereon county. The wedding took place at "Mount Pros pect," on the Hillen road, about two miles from Towson, Md., which has been the home of the Taylor family for 173 years.? The residence was tastefully decorated for the occasion with ferns and potted plants. ltev. William II. II. Powers, rector of Trinity Protestant Episcopal Church, Tow son, performed the ceremony. The bride entered the parlor with her brother, Mr. Robert Moore Taylor, who wore the suit of clothes which was worn by his father at his wedding more than a quarter of a century ago. The brlHfe was given away by her mother, and wore her mother's wedding gown, which was of white silk, trimmed with point lace and orange blossoms. It had also been worn by her sister, now Mrs. Hugh Price, at her ?narrlage on January 5 last. Miss Bessie Davis Baker, cousin of the groom, and daughter of Sheriff Eugene Ba ker, of this county, was maid of honor, and wore a gown of white organdy over green I taffeta, trimmed with white ribbons, and carried a boquet of ferns and carnations.? The bridesmaids were Miss Anne McEldow nev Taylor, sister of the bride, and Miss Mary Elizabeth Jenifer, cousin of the bride. They wore white organdy over white and carried white carnations. Br. II. R. Moore, of Washington, IX C., brother of the groom, was best man. The ushers were Messrs. Ashton Moore, brother of the groom, Thomas Rutherford Moore, L. fv. Winkle and Fontaine B. lloulf, of this city. John Moore, John Strother Moore, Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer and Wesley Gutch were ribbon boys. After the ceremony a reception was held ami later Mr. and Mrs. Moore left for a trip North. On their return they will take up their country residence some three miles north of this city, where the groom is flie owner of a fine country estate.
