SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON.
Ckjlbi.xi To-mv. Jurruuaow Couutt, W. Va. TIESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 12,1800. Oro. W. Haines. - Editor and Proprietor. $1.50 in Advance; 43 if not "Paid ill Advauco. Morgan's Grove Fair was well attend ed last week, and people generally well pleased with the new location for it. at ?? Fountain Rock." The court-martial at Rennes, France, Saturday, by a vote of 5 to 2, declared Capt. Alfred Dreyfus guilty and sen tenced him to ten years' imprisonment. For the Virginia State Firemen's Con vention, Roanoke, Va., Sept 27-29, 1S9Q, the N. & W. R. R. will offer Sept. 26 to j 29 round-trip tickets at sjsS.^s ; limit of tickets Oct. 2, 1S99. " A barn, stable, &c., of Mr. John H. Show, at the edge of Sliephetdstown, were destroyed by fire about 11 o'clock Wednesday night. Loss about ?Soo. with no insurance. The first prize for prettiest baby at Morgan's Grove Fair was awarded to Courtney Beatrice White, aged 9 months, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. C. White, of Charles Town, who received the silver cup. And now, on account of the Dreyfus affair, a boycott of the Paris exposition is proposed. For ourself, we will not go to Paris, and our brethren of the West Vir ginia press, we are sure, will stand pearli er quite unanimous along the same line. Albert Stevens, aged about sixteen years, a grandson of Mrs. Richard Mor gan of Sheplierdstown, fell under a Nor folk and Western freight train at Shen andoah Junction Thursday morning, and bad all arm crushed nearly off and his head fearfully cut, death ensuing Thurs day night. We return thanks to Secretary E- G. Hollis for a complimentary ticket to the Shenandoah Valley Agricultural Fair, to be held at Winchester Sept. 19-22 The envelope enclosing same bears a gbod picture of the present popular President < f the Association, and the Fair's bene factor, Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss. The music loving public of Charles Town and vicinity are promised a rare treat in the entertainment to be given by Alfred A. Farland, the celebrated banjo virtuoso, in Washington Hall. Sept. 19. Tickets are now on sale at the drug store of Mr. Geo. T. Light, and those who wish to secure good seats should apply at once. The fickleness of the French people, and their readiness one moment to shout "hosanna" and the next to cry 4'crucify him," was well illustrated Saturday at the conclusion of the Dreyfus trial, when, on the one hand, the closing speech for the defence was loudly applauded, and a short while later the verdict of guilty was received with vociferous shouts of 44 vive la arinie." The Berkeley Springs News reproduces our article mentioning the name of Col. J. GdVland Hurst in connection with the Democratic nomination for State Sena tor from this district,* and says: "There would be no need of Jefferson doing it all. Mr. Hurst would poll more than the Democratic v??te in tl is c? unty. Many a man up here wouM take hi* cntl t fi for the man who Mood !?v u-?~*' Alarms of fire are very unwelcome at any time, but when fire bells are rung and the people of Charles Town aroused from their slumbers with this fearful alarm almost at the dead hour of night on account of a fire at Shepherds town, we think the climax has about been reached and the town authorities should take some action to prevent a like occur rence in the future. The trial and conviction of Dreyfus, a thorough travesty upon justice, wiil for ever remain a blot upon French history, but not greater than the trial and convic tion of the innocent Mrs. Surratt upon that of the United States. In the latter case every man connccted therewith came tQ either an ignoble or untimely death, and the indications so far point unerringly to a like sequel in the Dreyfus case? Henry suicided, Patv du Clam on the verge of Insanity, and Ester hazy a con fessed criminal and fugitive from his na tive land. We do not know that Col. Hurst has any purpose to contest with Mr. William Campbell, who was elected last fall but not seated by the Senate. Col. Hurst, as we understand it, is an aspirant for the State Auditorship?a position he is well suited to fill with credit to the State. Should he be placed upon the State ticket he would poll a big vote.?Free Press. Col. Hurst, as we understand it, has 110 purpose of contesting in particular with any one. The position of State Senator is open ior nomination and election, the same 3s it was when Mr. Shaffer was nominated and elected, but not seated; and the friends of Col. Hurst, not a small number by any means, think he is the man for the place, and will give him a hearty support, without any particular antagonism toward any one. Should he be called higher and placed upon the State ticket, he would not only "poll a big vote," but if elected would make a first class Auditor as well. 44 Horace Rochford." We have fram the pressof F. Tennyson Ncely, New York and London, with the compliments and kind regards of the au thor, our estimable friend aiid former countyman Mr. Charles Davies, of Wash ington City, a copy of the above entitled work. "Horace Roehford" is a very interesting story of circumstantial evi dence, entertainingly told. If in telling this story, says the preface, 44 the author had any purpose save that of recalling by gone days and friends and events," it was 44 to impress the lesson, and by ex periences drawn from life illustrate it, of how unwise it is, how unjust to form hasty opinions as to the guilt of others, to form any opinion at all, indeed,-011 the subject, until investigation has elicited facts 011 which to base it. briefly, of the wisdom of the old maxim: 'Audi Alterem Partem.*" Mr. Davies, before beginning his story, in characteristic courtly style says: 44 If this book contains anything that is wor thy. any thoughts that are noble, any experiences that it may be well to follow in life, th'_-ir inspiration has been her to whom it is dedicated?My Wifk." : ;?: 1 " Rouss Day at Winchester. Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss will be the guest of the Shenandoah Valley Agricul tural Society on Thursday, September 21st, during the Winchester Fair, and while his annual visit on Thursday, on "Rouss Day" of the Fair is the signal for the largest outpouring of people usu ally seen there in the year, yet the citizens of Wincnester, the Star says, "should make a special effort this time to honor Mr. Rouss. Not only has he shown his liberality in unmistakable terms to our people for many,' many years past, but the renewed evidences of his !:indly feel ing for us as shown in his princely offer of $30,000 made some weeks ago, should at least stir in us that degsge of appreciation which would result in some semi-official honor of a special nature being tendered to him. "Mr. Rouss. everyone will admit, de serves some special attention. + **** + *+ . 44 In regard to the citizens of Winchester showing Mr. Rouss some special honor, would it not be a good idea to decorate the business houses in his honor? It is quite true that he cannot see the decora. tions,but he is still susceptible to apprecia tion and it is little enough we can do to thus honor him." Susannah Phillips, colored, died sud denly at Middleway Saturday afternoon, aged about 50 years. Deceased was highly esteemed, and her funeral on Sunday was largely attended by both white and col ored. Col. Forrest W. Brown, of Charles Town, is spoken of as the Democratic nominee for Congress. Jefferson.ought to give the necessary increased vote to elect him. but if she does not Morgan and Jefferson will and don't you forget it. [Berkeley Springs News. The Mosby monument at Front Royal will be unveiled Sept. 23. Speeches will be made by Gov. J. Hoge Tyler, Lieut. Beattie, Maj. Adolphus Richards and William A. Jones, a representative in Congress from Virginia. All members of Mosby's command are requested to meet at Davis' Hall. Front Royal, the date of the reunion, as stated above I lie N. &? W. R'y has been much cen sured for the outrageously limited ac commodations afforded persons south of Shenandoah Junction who visited Mor gan's Grove Fair last Thursday, several hundred passengers being crammed and packed into the two ordinary cars of the regular Shenandoah Accommodation, with not a single additional car for the large extra travel sure to be had on the usual - big day " of the fair. Extra cars, with ample accommodations, were at tached for the return trip, but why such provision was not made for the run over in the morning seems hard to divine. 1 liree more persons charged with par ticipating in the robbery of Richard Mor gan, the aged bridgekeeper.at Shepherds town hist May, were lodged in jail here Sunday. Fletcher Brown, colored, was arrested in Pittsburg Saturday by Detec tive David Smart and brought'to Charles 'own Sunday morning. It is said ht made a full and complete confession, in which he related the details of the crime, and on the strength of his confession De tective Smart and Deputy Sheriff Porter field went to Shepherdstown Sunday afternoon and arrested Dairtel Shell and Edward Connell for the same crime. They were brought to Charles Town and jailed with Brown and Thomas Garrison and George Winebrenner, the latter two having been arrested last month.

Church pre sents just now an odd appearance, bein? .llled with scaffolding for repainting and decorating, which will be more elaborate than heretofore. Owing to the little u^e for the side galleries, they have been re moved, and this with the decoration ol the pillars will add greatly to the beauty of the chtirch, giving the benefit of the high ceiling to the sides as well as to the middle. There will be three or four tiers Of pews in the end gallery.which, extend ing clear across the church, will give al most as many desirable seats as were had with the side galleries, the front seats in those having been the only ones from which much could be seen. It is hoped to have the church ready for the conse cration of Bishop-elect Gravatt, early in November. t o Th6 K'n!l Y?"

Notwithstanding the excessively high ternperatuses the chil dren or teachers don't seem to know it is hot. They find it out. however, as they come home in the afternoon.

Web ster defines disease as "lack of ease, uneasiness, trouble, vexation, disquiet." It is a condition due to sonic derangement of the physical organism. A vast major ity of the "dis-ease" from which people suffer is due to impure blood. Disease of this kind is cured by Ilood's Sarsaparilla, which purifies, enriches and vitalizes the blood. Hood's Sarsaparilla cures scrof ula, salt rheum, pimples and all erup tions. It tones the stomach and creates a good appetite, and it gives vigor and vitality to the whole body. It reverses the condition of things, giving health, comfortand 44 ease "in place of "disease." Resolutions Adopted by the Vestry of Zion Church, Charles Town, W. Va.. August 8th, lS'JO. .Whereas, at a special session of the Council of the Diocese of West Virginia, convened in the city of Clarksburg, July 26th 1S99. for the purpose of electing a Bishop Coadjutor, the Rev. W. L.Gravatt, beloved Rector of this Parish, was elected to that high and holy office; we, the vestry of Zion church desire to place on record our endorsement of that action. He it therefore Resolved, That, in the opinion of the vestry, the Diocese is to be congratulated upon the choice made; and while deeply deploring the loss which will be sustained, by this Parish, we confidently believe that in the person of Rev. W. L. Gravatt the Diocese will secure a wise, prudent and faithful Bishop. His faithfulness and constancy in the discharge of duty, with unusual alertness in action ; his power to attract and hold the attention of his hear ers, and his prompt and ever ready sym pathy will all combine to give to the chief Pastor, the Bishop of the Diocese, an able, efficient helper, who will stand ready at all times to render him whatever service it may be in his power to perform. Be it further. Resolved.That the resolutions be spread upon the minutes of the vestry, and that t'nc Registrar be requested to send a copy to Rev. W. L.
