The oc currence was witnessed by a large crowd of colored people who were at the park on a picnic. The man is said to have been very drunk. The road makers in Washington county ought to wake up and macadamize the stretch of public road between Shepherdstown and Antietam Station, a distance of about two miles. There are good turnpikes from Baltimore clear through to Shepherdstown, save for this stretch of sand and clay, and from Shepherdstown there are good macadamized roads all the way down the Shenandoah Valley as far as Staunton. We hope that our neighbors will consider their own and the public good and build a decent road at that point.

Contracts were closed a few days ago i for the manufacture and delivery to the New York Herald and the Atlanta Journal of 2,500 porcelain enameled iron signs to be used in the permanent marking of the new highway at convenient points between New York and Atlanta. It is intended to erect 2,000 of these before the dedicatory reliability contest over the route the last week in October, so that at that time every mile of the journey will be so plainly bulletined that the tourist may follow it easily. As the distance between the two terminal cities by the national highway is a little more than one thousand miles, this will permit the placing of about an average of two of these signs to each mile. The route is through Shepherdstown. Miss Anna L. Ranson, a deaconess in i the Episcopal Church, arrived at the home of her father, Dr. B. B.

Destructive Barn Fire. The large new bank barn of Charles 0. Payne, at Burns's ford on the Opequon creek, in Berkeley county, was destroyed by fire last Saturday evening, causing a loss of from $3,500 to $4,000. The fire ' was first discovered about half-past 6 o'clock while the family was at supper. Smoke was seen coming from the hay- ' mow, and in a few moments the whole structure was ablaze, making it impossi- 1 bie to save it or its contents. The barn, which was built about a year ago at a ' cost of $2,000, and which was 45 x 60 feet 1 in size, was entirely destroyed, together 1 with 1,000 bushels of wheat, 25 tons of ' hay, farming implements, harness, etc. ' No live stock was destroyed.

The old Hunter dwelling-house or "Angel Hill," in the eastern section of the town, on High street, which is now being demolished to make room for the railroad improvements, is an ancient land-mark in Shepherdstown. We have been unable to learn when the house was originally built, but it was probably considerably over a hundred years ago. It was in its day a rather imposing structure, being built of brick with a good roughcast finish on the outside known as the dash-and-pebble style. Situated on a hill, and two stories high, it could be seen for a considerable distance. About seventy-five years ago the house belonged to Valentine Heilman, and when he died he left it to the Reformed Church for a parsonage. It was used for this purpose for many years, but was sold forty-odd years ago, the late Theodore Hunter becoming its owner and occupant. The Hunter family lived in it for many years, but all of the family have now died save J. E. Hunter, who lives in Pittsburg. He sold it a year or two ago to the N. & W. Railway Company. The company needing the site for its new station surroundings, gave the house to Charles B. McDonald, who will use the material in the erection of a new dwelling in the boom section and thus perpetuate the old landmark. The opening up of that section of the town and the improvements made by the railroad company are causing a revolution on "Angel Hill." This is one of the oldest parts of the town, and was intended originally to be the main street and chief residence section. But the town grew in the opposite direction, and Henderson's ArtHitinn Htrln't amnunt tr\ mnrh ac Ray's Addition many years later. Several of the very old buildings on Angel Hill have been demolished, among them [he extremely ancient log house known to the old-timers as the Chris Benner house. In connection with the railroad improvements, great changes are being made at the corner of High and Mill streets. The steep grade to the old railroad crossing at that point is being cut down and the material used to fill in the low places. Underground pipes have been laid to carry off the floods that occasionally tear down Mill street. An easy approach to the new station from High street will be constructed, and new concrete crossings have been made, rhe property owners of that neighborhood are also interested and are now joining in the improvements. John H. Showis making a fine new concrete pavement along his property on the south side of High street, and the railroad will continue it to the new station. Henry Magaha, on [he north side, will also put in a nice concrete sidewalk, and George Sanbower expects to move his stable and make simlar improvement along his property. Big Prices for Apples. The Register last week told of the sale Df a number of apple crops in the Kearneysville neighborhood, most of which were disposed of at prices ranging around ?2 a barrel net. These prices, it is said. ?re ahciiit as trnnd as some nf the Berke ey county growers have secured, when ill conditions are considered, though the atter are quoted as high as $3 a barrel. Several of the most extensive apple growers of the county have not yet sold. Dr. A. P. Thomson, who has a crop esimated at nearly 3,OCX) barrels, will store his yield in his new cold storage warehouse at Summit Point. Rouss Brothers, vith their father, Capt. Milton Roussf lave in their orchards about Kabletown, t is said, nearly 10,000 barrels. Their :rop has not yet been sold. E. G. Wilson has a thrifty orchard containing upwards of 2,OCX) barrels at Kabletown, vhich he has sold to Martinsburg buyers it $3 per barrel. It is estimated that the apple crop will >ring $150,000 to $200,000 to Frederick :ounty, Va., this fall. Some very large irchards were sold at Winchester last veek, one firm from New York buying fTO.OOO worth of fruit. Among the big growers w ho sold w ere James L. Robinson, 7,000 barrels, $3.50 and $4.00 a bar el; S. Lucien Lupton, 6,000 barrels, $3.60 ind $4 a barrel; Steck Bros., 4,000 barrels. $3.50 a barrel; E. V. Weems, 2,500 sarrels, $3 a barrel.

Operated Upon for Appendicitis. Geo. M. Beitzhoover, Jr., of Charles Town, son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. M. Beitzhoover, of Shepherdstown, has been eery ill the past week from an acute at:ack of appendicitis. Mr. Beitzhoover had seen feeling somewhat indisposed for some days, but thought that the trouble ivas from indigestion. Last Sunday evening he drove to the country to make a all, and while there was taken violently ill. Dr. Venning was hastily sent for, md took Mr. Beitzhoover back to Charles Town and placed him in the hospital there. An examination showed that he *as suffering from acute appendicitis and in operation was imperative. At 9 a'clock the operation was performed, and t seems to have been none too soon, as tiis condition was quite serious.
