Deafness Cannot Be jCured
<
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness, 1
and that is by constitutional remedies. ]
Deafness is caused by an inllamed con- j
dition of the mucous lining of the Ku- .
stachian Tube. When this tube is intlamed
you have a rumbling sound or \
imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely
closed. Deafness is the result, and j
unless the inflammation can betaken out ,
and this tube restored to its normal condition.
hearing will be destroyed forev- 1
er : nine cases out of ten are caused by 1
Catarrh, which is nothing but an in- ]
tlauied condition of t he mucous surfaces. ,
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that car.not be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars, free. <

[his Week s Railroad News. i
Renewed interest has been mani- 1
'ested in this neighborhood within the
>ast few days in railroad matters. 1
Major J. A. Hunter was in town yeserday,
and later went to Harper's '
Kerry, where he has one or two opions
to close up for right-of-way of
he new B. & 0. cut-olF. He has in- j
tructions to conclude the right-of-way
business finally along this line without !
'urther delay.
On Monday the B. & 0. people i
caused papers to be served on Benja- i
uin Hartzell, notifying him that on
:he 19th of M$y application will be
Bade before the Circuit Court of Jef- ,
ferson county for the appointment of
commissioners to assess the damages (
for right-of-way through his property (
it Shepherdstown. Mr. Hartzell is,
we believe, the only land owner with
whom the railroad has made no arrangement
for right-of-way. The
road crosses his extensive truck garleDs
here, and if the switches and sidugs
that are supposed to be necessary
[o make connections between the B. ,
fc 0. and the Norfolk & Western are
constructed through his property,
which will likely be the case, he will
practically have his gardens destroyed. <
lie named a figure for his property
that the railroad refused to agree to,
ind commissioners will be appointed. 11
When this matter is adjusted there
Deed be no further obstacle in the
way of beginning work, so far as the
right-of-way is concerned. It is again
rumored that active work will soon
begin on the road, and the indications
seem to poiut that way.

Farm Fires.
Frank M. Stanley, his wife and
children, and Geo. W. Cross and his
family had a lively time of it last
Thursday night. Mr. Stanley is the
tenant on Mr. Cross's farm on Rocky
Marsh, west of town. Last Thursday
he was burning stumps and trash from
a piece of cleared ground, taking advantage
of the time when the wind
was blowing in an opposite direction
from the buildings. He went to bed .
in peace of mind, but happening to
awake a few hours afterward he found
a great fire burning in the clearing.
The wind had changed, and a wild gale
from the north had fanned fierce flames
into existence, while myriads of sparks
were blowing toward the barn and
other buildings. The sight appalled
Mr. Stanley for a time, but be called
the other members of the family and
roused the neighbors, and all hands
went to fighting the fire. The pump
was kept going, while others carried
earth and threw it upon the burning 1
embers. The fire was so extensive
that it kept a number of persons busy
ill night fighting it from the buildings,
which were saved by the most strenuous
efforts. Fortunately no serious
iamage was done, but those who were
interested had a very trying experence.
A large frame and stone bank barn
on the farm of Samuel D. Piper, about
i mile from Sharpsburg, was destroyed
oy fire last Thursday afternoon. A
:ow and two calves, a new self-binder,
several wagons, a lot of harness, hay
ind fodder and hogpen Were also
sumed. The farm was tenanted ny
[foustantious Cost. H*1 had insurance
imounting to $1,425 on the barn's conents.
The barn was insured in Fred- j
frick county. It is thought the fire
started from sparks from the dwelling
ihimney. The outbuildings were i
saved bv a bucket brigade hastily
'ortned by neighbors. Just as the ;
worses were led from tlie stable tlie
roof fell in. The total loss will be
ibout $3,000, with almost enough insurance
to cover it. Tins is the third
lme the barn on this farm has been
lestroyed. The fiist t me was during
die Civil War, when it was set on fire
jv cannon balls from the Union tiring
ine. The second time was in 1884.
Fach time it was burned to the ground.
iVesley Selbert Answers the Last Call.
J Wesley Seibert, the well-known
rolored barber, died at his home in
Shepherdetown last Sunday night.
The deceased was a much respected
nan, and had a wide circle of white
friends in this section who will regret
lis death. Wesley, who was about
)9 years old, belonged in his youth to
Mrs. Betsy Morgan. At the outbreak
)f the Civil War he went with Company
B, of this place, as cook, and all
:h rough the war he was with the Confederate
soldiers in the Second Virginia
Regiment, serving them fiithully
and standing by them through
ill their adversities. After the war
ae settled in Sbepberdstown, where he
jonducted a barber shop, having been
ocated in the Fntler building on Main
street for 3G years. For the past year
lis heart has been giving him serious
:rouble, and in February last he sold
ais business to Lester Wells and retired
from work, ile grew worse as
time passed, and peacefully passed
lway Sunday night. Wesley was an
honest, industrious man who possessed
ind was deserving of the respect of
the people. He stood by his friends
manfully, and his influence, was used
iu the right way in all matters pertaining
to the public welfare. He was
economical and prudent, and had accumulated
a snug fortune, his home
being among the neatest ami most
comfortable in the town. He was
married, but had no children. The
luneral service was held in the colored
Methodist church yesterday afternoon,
[t was one of the most remarkable
ieraonst rat ions ever seen in Shepherdstown?indeed,
we do not know that t
similar occurrence has ever been known
in this country. The Confederate Veterans
and the Sons of Confederate
Veterans, commanded by (apt. M. J.
Billmyer, marched in the funeral procession
and attended the service. The
most prominent business men of the
town and a number of ladies were
? 1 .'i - il.
among lne Willie persons hi iii^ .--irice?bankers,
lawyers, merchants and
business men generally j aying their
respect to tlie memory ol a man whose
skin was dark but whose life had been
faithful. The service was in charge of
bis pastor, Rev. J. K Carter, and Revs
Murray, of C'hailes Town, and Greenfield,
of this place. Three white ministers
of our town also assisted in the
?ervice, Rev. Charles Ghiselin, D. I> ,
of the Presbyterian Church, Rev. II
C. McPaniel. of the M. E. Church,and
Rev. J. C. Thrasher, of the M. E
Church South. The church was filled
with white and colored people, and
the service was a very impressive one

Bad Wreck on the Canal.
A thrilling and fatal disaster occurred
at Little Slackwater, at D?m
No. 5, about six miles above Willie maport,
last Friday morning, when the
Canal Towage Company's boat No. 6.
in charge of Captain Joseph Kime, of
Cumberland, was blown by a fierce
gale over the dam.
Captain Kime's 8-year-old daughter,
who was on the boat, was drowned,
and he was fatally injured. Clara,
another daughter of Captain Kime,
aged 10 years, had her left arm broken
and received other serious injuries.
Harry Newkirk, who lives at the
lock, went down with the boat. He
was seriously cut and bruised and had
several teeth knocked out.
Five persons and two mules were
on the boat, and the wonder is that all
were not killed. A terrible gale was
blowing. The boat was empty and
going toward Cumberland. Lock
Tender Daniel Sterling warned Captain
Kime of his danger, but he went
on. The boat passed tnrough the
guard lock and around the pier and
went out into the river. The mule
team had crossed the lock to the towpath
on the right side of the canal
above the lock, and as the boat was
going out into the river the wind
twisted the craft around. The tow
line snapped and the wind drove the
boat rapidly toward the dam, which
is 25 feet high. Captain Kime's wife
and two children, who were on deck,
rushed for safety into the cabin.
Captain Kime, who was steering, stuck
to his po-t. The boat was turned
brotdside about 150 yards from the
edge of the dam, over which it plunged
near the mi l lie ot the river. The |
boat struck on lt-s side in water and
rocks. Captain K;me was thrown 15
feet in the air and landed on his side
on the boat. Inside the cabin his
frantic wife and children were tossed
from side to side. The eldest child
was struck by tLe stove and wedged
against the bunk. The youngest
child was carried through the window
into the river and drowned Mrs
Kline was knocked against the side of
the cabin and rendered senseless.
Xewkirk was thrown into the water
among rocks. After the boat struck
it righted and was partly filled with
water. It was badly damaged.
The lock tenderand several companions
went in boats to tbe assistance of
those on the boat. Mrs. Kime and
one of the children were pulled out
of the cabin and rowed ashore. Tbe
child was bleeding and unconscious.
Captain Kime and Newkiik were
picked up and taken to the lock house.
A messenger on horseback was dispatched
to Williamsport for Dr. W. S.
Richardson, who hurried to the scene
and remained live hours with thein
Captain Kirne, who wan about 65
years ohl, died at Ashton Station, on
the Potomac Valley Railroad, Saturday
afternoon. Saturday morning
his condition seemed somewhat improved
and arrangements were made
to take him to Cumberland, where he
resided. He said be felt well enough
to undertake the trip. He was carried
in a wagon from the lock-house at
dam No 5 to Ashton Station to take
a train. He was accompanied by his
wife and little daughter, who had her
leg broken in the boat. Hemorrhages
9i t in soon after he arrived at the station.
He died almost immediately
afterward.
Mrs. Ivime ami her crippled daughter
went to Cumberland. The body
ot the youngest daughter, who was
swept out of the cabin of the boat and
drowned, has not been recovered.
TVia tiro a ilmvn the river
Saturday, and, after repair?, will be
placed in the canal again for service.

Wreck On the Norfolk k Western.
Passenger train No. 3 on. the Norfolk
& Western Railway, which passed
through Shepherdstown last Saturday
morning at 8.20, was wrecked a few
hours later as it was going into the
yards at Shenandoah at a pretty good
speed. Conductor J. B. Manyett was
in charge of the train, with M. A. Brag
nier brakeman. Engineman Horace
Long was on the locomotive and
Albert M. Williamson was firing.
While going into Shenandoah Engineer
Long saw that a switch leading to
a siding, on which was a string of
freight cars, was open. It was too
late to stop his train, but he reversed
the engine, threw on the air and then
jumped. He landed against a switchpost
and fell forward, receiving painful
bruises about his body and cuts on
his hands and face. The engine
plowed into a freight car, and just as
it upset Fireman Williamson jumped.
He landed on his head, which was
crushed like an eggshell, and if death
had not been instantaneous the scalding
steam that enveloped him would
soon have killed him. The engine
was completely wrecked, but none of
the cars m the train left the track.
The passengers were badly shaken up,
but none was hurt. Postal Clerk Joseph
V. Bell, of this county, was slightly
injured. Another engine was secured
at Shenandoah, and after a few
moments' delay the train was taken
on to Roanoke. Fireman Williamson s
body was sent to Bentonville, his former
home, for burial. His wife has a
little baby, only two weeks old, and
it is said that before he left hpme Saturday
morning she seemed to have a
