The Republican National Convention will be held in -Philadelphia, June 16. Mrs. Joseph Padgett died Tuesday night. December 5, at her home in Har per's Ferry.

Mr. John Lawrence died at the Coun ty Infirmary, of Paralysis, last week, aged 80 years. He was a member of the Stouewall Brigade, and Rev. Dr. A. C. Hopkins, liis former chaplain, officiated at his funeral Saturday. We acknowledge thecompliment of the announcement card of the marriage of Mr. Thomas Fitzgerald, Jr., son of Su perintendent Fitzgerald of the B. & O. R. R-, to Miss Annie Laurie, daughter of ex-Senator Unger of Morgan county, which occurred in Washington, D. C., Dec. 5. We tender congratulations. At home after Jan. 1st, at 13 West 84th St., New York. "Consistency ot the Normal Metes and Bounds ot Our Republic?A Jei/el from which the People Should Be Loath to Part," is a well written pamphlet from the pen of Mr. Charles A. Compton, in which the writer presents an array of strong arguments on the side of anti-ex pansion. It is well worth reading, and copies may be obtained at the office of Mr. Charles Rissler, in this place. Mr. Thos. J. West, the popular auc tioneer, who is also a thirfty Jefferson county farmer, had his cornhouse broken open a few nights ago?not by thieves, however, we are glad to say, but by reason of the pressure of his immense crop, which busted the buildingand endeavored to load itself fn the wagon under the ad jacent shed. It is a mooted question as to whether Mr. West?who is always found duly sober and " right side up "? was not on this occasion somewhat ?"corned." We call attention to advertisement of sale by B. D. Gibson, Trustee, of the rial estate and personal property of tl.e Charles Town Electric Light, Heat and Power Company, thesale being necessary to settle up the estate of Mr. H. S. Reiley, I who died last October, and who held a majority of the Company's stock. We have heard many suggestions that this is a good time for the Town to consider the question of buying the controling interest in the electric light plant, and ruji it-for the benefit of the Town. * Senator Scott has been given the chair manship of the select committee to inves tigate conditions of the Potomac river front at Washington, which was held by ? Senator Turpie in the last Congress, and is assigned to the committees on contin Rent expenses of the Senate, manufac tures, railroads, public buildings and grounds and raining. SenatorElkinsisat the head of the committee on geological survey, and is a member besides of the committees on civil service, commerce, inter-State commerce, rules, postoffices and printing. Mr. Geo. W. Packett has in hisposses- I sion a copy of the - Maryland Journal and Baltimore Advertiser," bearing date ugust so. 1773. it contains news from London of J une 13. and from New York of August 12. Among the advertisements is one by George Washington, offering for sale lands on the Ohio. Great Kana wha and New rivers. A reward of ten I pounds is offered for a runaway Irish servant man, and in the markets wheat IS quoted at six shillings and sixpence, corn at two shilling and ninepence, and superfine flour at twenty shillings. Capt. Samuel D. Engle. a well-known and highly esteemed citizen of Jefferson county, died at his home near Middleway Saturday night, aged 66 years. The de' ceased was a gallant Confederate soldier and servedwith distitiction throughout the war, first as lieutenant in Company A 12 th Virginia Cavalry, and later as cap tain of Company F in the same regiment. 1 uneral services were held in the M P Church at Middleway, by Rev h' a" Green, after which the remains were in terred in Edge Hill Cemetery at this place, with Masonic honors, by Trilumi nar Lodge of Middleway, Malta Lodge oining that body here. Mr. Charles Marlutt, night operator at Harpers Ferry, received notice that a supposed negro murderer had boarded a late westbound train Tuesday night in \v ashington. and when the traiu arrived, about one o'clock, went out and captured the man, brought him into his office, and held him under cover of his pistol with one hand whilst he telegraphed the eap .-??ejo Washington, It turned out that the prisoner was not the man wanted but this does not detiact irom the nerve dis played by Mr. Marlatt in making the arrest at the dead hour of night, single handed and alone, of a man whom he then believed to be a murderer and a desperate character. The annual meeting of the Jefferson County Anti-Saloon League will be held at the court-house in Charles Town Tues day. Jan. 2. I9oo. morning, afternoon and night. All churches and societies in the county are earnestly requested to be rep resented in the convention by sending two delegates for each society. Sunday .School or young people's sccietv.

Evervbody is cordially invited, especially the'citizens | of Charles Town. Commutes. I HI* Plan Wn? Simple. Frederick the Great once requested bis generals to submit to him plans of campaign for a supposititious case. Hans Joachim von Ziethen, the famous cav alry general, produced a queer diagram in black ink. It represented a big blot in the center, intersected by two black lines, -whose fonr terminals ended each in a smaller blot. The king was furi ous and upbraided his old comrade in arms bitterly for what he considered disrespect. In explanation Von Ziethen said: "Wby, your majesty, I am the large blot in the center?the enemy is any one of the four smaller blots^ He can march upon me from the right or left, from the front or rear. If he does, I simply advance upon any of the four lines and lick hizn where I find him." Frederick was satisfied. Thej- Oagkt to Unite. Here is a story of a Milwaukee couple who agreed to separate after IS years of married life: They continued to re side within a block of each other and to pass the time of day impersonally when they met. When the silver anni versary of the wedding came on, both celebrated it, although separately. Two church ceremonies were performed in the church where, they were wedded 26 years before, the husband's ceremony being at 8 o'clock in the morning and the wife's at 9. That evening each gave a reception at the residence ut the snuir hour, and the same friends called to pay their respects, successi. . ly <?bin>' from one house to the other.?jlihvm. kee Sentinel.

He is a gentleman of pluck and enterprise, and we are quite sure that visitors to Harrison burg will find at the Revere a cordial welcome and the best of treatment. Be Wau Too Familiar. W. G. Wills, the dramatist and painter, once attracted so much atten tion by his pastels?according to a story in the published memoirs?that he was requested by the secretary to attend at Osborne to do portraits of her majesty's grandchildren. Mr. Wills was a thor ough Bohemian, and the invitation filled him with dismay. In ignorance of the etiquette which construes a royal invitation in a command he thought to get out of it by writing a polite note, stating that a prior engagement would prevent his attending. The next day a telegram came from Osborne to ttae fol lowing effect! "The queen commands Mr. Wills to attend at Osborne imme diately. " The artist was far too loyal a subject to dispute her majesty's direct com mands. So he rnefnlly packed up his belongings and started for the royal palace. As might well be supposed, his life at Osbcrne was uncongenial. When he was doing a portrait of a royal baby on all fours and good hnmoredly said, "Look up, little onel" the lady in waiting reproved his familiarity and told him he must address the infant as princess or your royal highness. The pastel portraits which he made still hang at Osborne, and as royal pat ronage gave a great stimulns to sitters his reputation was made. ^rdova Candles room or nouu I NothfiiVwm? f ortintic succc Nothing el ho adds bo mnch 1 to the charm of the drawing I room or boudoir as the softl/ rsdt ? * * ' .m CORDOVA Candle*. 1 1 contribute more to the I ?ccess of the luncheon, I I tea or dinner.
