Wainwright, a colored physician of Charles Town, was found guilty last week in the United States Court at Martinsburg of selling liquor illegally, and Judge Dayton sentenced him to serve six months in jail and pay a fine of $200 and costs. From the testimony against him Wainwright seems to have been very bold in his blind tiger operations. We very heartily commend Mayor Martin's request that all householders shall observe next A\onday as clean-up day. Sweep the street in front of your premises, and the corporation authorities will have the dirt hauled away. Go after your yards, front and back, and put your premises in good order?beautify and adorn your homes and make the town attractive and beautilul. Druggist Robert Gibson had a real nice self-registering thermometer pi iced in front ot his store a few weeks ago, but some unregenerate son of perdition has stolen it.

The County Court has appointed the following commissioners for Shepherdstown district toconductthespecial election for Congressman to be held May 9th: Duffields, W. C. Daniels, W. B. Link, J C.

McGraw and his associates. Most of them are from the circuit court in Taylor county in favor of a bank in Grafton. The judgments heretofore recorded, added to more recent ones, make a total of about $300,000 against these parties. These judgments are recorded in this county in order to secure a lien on "Casilis," a farm of 220 acres, owned by Col. McGraw, half a mile south of Charles Town. Residents of Maryland who have been accustomed to deal in Shepherdstown. and w ho have had monthly rates for the use of the bridge across the Potomac river at this place, are considerably wrought up over the decision of the bridge company to withdraw these monthly rates All who have had this privilege have been notified that the arrangement will be terminated the 30th of April, and alter that time they will have to pay for every trip, just as casual travelers do. We reckon our Bridgeport friends w ill have to move over to Shepherdstown. A strenuous effort is being made this week to raise a sum of money by private subscription sufficient, with some aid from the town council, to construct a sew er from Duke street at the Beltzhoover corner, down Main street to Princess, then down Princess to High street, where it will connect with the main sewer already in use. The town officers are backing the project, private citizens are contributing liberally, and it looks to us as if the greatly desired object w ill be attained. Mayor U. S. Martin has agreed to give his time gratis in engineering and superintending the work. Wilmer B. Miller, of the drug firm of Owens <? Miller, has returned from Georgia, where he has just graduated from the Max Morris School of Pharmacy at Macon. He took the examination of the Georgia Slate Board of Pharmacy, which he passed very satisfactorily. Of more than a hundred applicants, fifty passed, and Mr. Miller was among the first ten. As Georgia and West Virginia have reciprocity in pharmaceutical examinations, he is now recognized as a fullfledged pharmacist, with all the rights belonging. He is on duty now at the old stand and will be pleased to see his old friends and new customers. Winter seems unable to give up. Snow began falling last Friday night and continued through Saturday and Saturday night, covering the ground in places to a depth of several inches. It melted rapidly. else it would have been a phenomenal fall The weather continued chilly until the middle of the week. The snows and the frequent rains have prevented the farmers from plowing and attending to other farm work, and operations in this line are considerably behindtime. The wheat is looking very well, and if we get some warm sunshine now the grass will pick up wonderfully. Trees and shrub bery are very backward for the season, and there is not much evidence yet of spring. Early gardeners are beginning to show restiveness, as there has been practically no planting yet. In another column may be found the announcement of J. Strider Moler as candidate for the Democratic nomination for sheritf of Jefferson county. He has formed a combination with Nelson T. Snyder, who withdraws as candidate for high sheriff and goes on Mr. Moler's ticket as deputy. D. W. Ramey, of Charles Town, is named as jailor. Mr. Moler is one of the best men in our county?capable in business, of unquestioned integrity, and thoroughly qualified to fill the office he seeks. Mr. Snyder is also one of our best citizens and has had considerable experience in public affairs as a member of our county court. Mr. Ramev is one ot Charles Town's most highly regarded business men, and has the confidence of the people. It is expected that a second deputy will be named by Mr. Moler in a few days. Now that spring has opened up, our town officials ought to look after our streets and crossings. Practically no work was done last year on the streets, except having them swept a tew times, and they need attention. Some of the crossings have become mudholes instead of good pavements, while others serve as dams for ponds on either side. A new crossing is needed between the Lutheran Church and the graded school. This is one of the most used crossings in town, and yet it is about the worst. According to the statement published last week, there is almost $1,400 in the town treasury. Our public improvements should not be neglected when we have plenty of money with which to keep them up. We hope that our city fathers will also have the streets oiled without unnecessary delay. The summer was almost half over last year before the oil was applied, giving us a deal of unnecessary dust and dirt..*) 9 PERSONAL NOTES. Among our callers on Friday last were Messrs. Thos. J. West, Thos. J. West, Jr., and Geo. W. Moore, of this county, who were here on political business.

Last Monday night a very successful parents' meeting was held at the Sheptierdstown Graded School. The teachers had taken great pains to send word to each lather and mother to be present, and about twenty-tive interested parents were 011 hand. Dr. Hopkins (jibson read a very interesting and helpful paper 011 "Mouth Hygiene." It was highly commended, and will appear in full in next week's issue of the Register. After the paper was read opportunity was given tor the audience to ask questions, and many intelligent and helpful questions were asked, which were satisfactorily answered by Dr. uibson. Alter this informal discussion, Prof. Miller gave a very helpful address, in which he emphasized the necessity of better health conditions and better co-operation between the home and school. He gave some very valuable suggestions for both teachers and parents. This address was followed by another half hour ot informal discussion of problems of interest to the school and the home. Dr. Harriet B. Jones, of Wheeling, was expected to address the meeting, and though her tram was late, all waited patiently until she arrived. Dr. Jones crow ded about as much practical instruction in the fifteen minutes given her as could well be done. She emphasized very strongly the need of medical inspection in all public schools. i? u;ae q littip late when the meetine adjourned, but every one felt that it was a Cruiitable and helpful hour. There will e another such meeting on Monday night, April 24th. New Town Sergeant. At a meeting of the town council on Tuesday night a committee w as appointed to make an arrangement for the employment of a town sergeant. It has been apparent for some time that there is practically no use for a policeman, and that money appropriated tor this purpose was spent unnecessarily. The committee after consideration decided to cut the pay of the town sergeant in half and employ some one to serve in this capacity as occasion demands, without requiring all of his time. Former sergeant Robert Shipley agreed to take the job under these conditions, and his duty will be to make arrests when necessary, collect licenses and wind the town clock, with a salary of $15 per month. He has been sworn in and is now the official sergeant. Mr. Shipley hasa reputation as a very efficient man, having served as town sergeant for a number of years, and we shall expect him to put a quietus on pilgrims returning from Sharpsburg, especially on Saturday nights. The Death Record. Mrs. Hester Lemen Hagan, widow o! Major Henry Hagan, died at her home in this place last Sunday evening about six o'clock, in the 90th year of her age. Hei death was the result of the infirmities due to her advanced years. Up to within s few months ago she enjoyed fairly good health, and retained her faculties to a degree remarkable in one so old. For the past month she had been steadily growing weaker, and for a week before hei death was practically unconscious. Mrs. Hagan, whose maiden name was Lemen, was born in Berkeley county, in the vicinity of Williamsport, and she was the last of a large family of children, most oi whom lived to be very old. Her husband was Major Henry Hagan, a gallant Confederate soldier, who died some twenty years ago. She lived in Shepherdstow n for many years, making her home recently with her great-nieces, Mrs. R. C Criswell and Misses Sue and Helen Lemen. Mrs. Hagan was a genuinely good woman, kind-hearled and unselfish, and her memory will be cherished by many who can never forget her motherly goodness and her life of helpfulness. Her funeral was held Tuesday afternoon in Trinity Episcopal Church, of which she was a member, the service being conducted by the rector. Rev. J. W. Ware. The body was laid to rest in Elmwood Cemetery. Robert B. Dickey died at his home in Harper's Ferry last Saturday night, after a long illness, aged 67 years. Mr. Dickey was for a number of years agent and yard master for the B. & O. Railroad at Sandy Hook, and was highly regarded. He is survived by a son, Raymond B. Dickey, and a daughter. I i? ?

Miller a former resident of Berkeley county, died last Sunday at his home in Scottdale, Pa., aged 59 years. John Dittmyer, a well-known resident of Bolivar, this county, died on Tuesday, aged 75 years. A Delightful Entertainment. The "Shakesperean Evening" in Shepherdstown last Friday night was, as had been anticipated, a very delightful performance. A large audience was present, including many prominent persons from Charles Town as well as a number from Alartinsburg and other places. No one was disappointed in the readings from Shakespeare and the scenes from his immortal plays by Mr. and Mrs. R. L). Shepherd, tor both were magnificent. Air. Shepherd is regarded as the greatest Shakesperean performer in America, while Mrs. Shepherd, always versatile and clever, is equally charming in any role she essays. The balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet was the most enjoyable thing on the programme. Nothing could have been sweeter than Airs. Shepherd's Juliet. In striking contrast with this beautiful scene was the tragic performance of Juliet in the potion speech ?a rendition of great dramatic power. Air. Shepherd's most eftective reading, we think, was his characterization of Shylock, from the "Alerchant of Venice," which was a splendid bit of work. Everybody enjoyed the clever scene from "The ,kn Ck.i,... " ...ilk Wrr- Ck^r. lf1Uil.lL; ui MIC ouitw , Willi mud. ^iic^iherd as Katherine. Mr. Shepherd as Petruchio and Mr. Charles C. Triplett as Baptists. A very enjoyable part of the performance was the musical feature. Mi?s Elizabeth Banks and Mr. William Baldwin Snyder each sang a group of songs, with Miss Rachel Snyder as accompanist, that were very beautifully rendered and which were greatly appreciated by the audience. Miss Nina Mitchell played exquisitely on the piano selections by Rubenstein and Liszt. Mrs. Phineas Rush, who was to have also sung, was prevented from taking her part because of illness. The event was a success in every respect, and a comfortable sum was added to the treasury of the hospital relief fund. It was a most'pleasant event socially, too, and the visitors enjoyed an informal lunch after the performance. The Shepherdstown Fire Department generously tendered the use of their hall tree ot charge, which was greatly appreciated by the ladies in charge of the entertainment. ??* Activity at the Quarries. Signs multiply that the stone quarry industry in this county has reached a new era ot prosperity, with the assurance that this condition will continue indefinitely. New quarries are being opened and the old ones being operated wi: . greater forces of men. The terms of the lease from the O. J Keller Lime Company to the Southern Limestone Company, a subsidiary of the Cambria Steel Company, of Johnstown, Pa., were made known this week, when the lease was tiled for record in the county clerk's office. The Keller company, by the lease, grants to the Southern company the uuarry rights on a farm of 156 acres, at Engle's, this county, getting a royalty ot two cents for each long ton of stone taken out. The Southern LimeStone Company is to pay an annual minimum royalty of $2,500 a year for a term of twenty-five years The Keller company reserves the right to farm all the land not occupied by the quarries. Alfred Slater, the manager of the Southern Limestone Company, informed the Advocate that he expected to employ about 300 men at the Keller nlant when rmeratinns get in full blast this summer. A similar lease was taken by George W. Johnston, of Newcastle, Pa., who is <aid to icpresent the United States Steel Corporation, on the farm of B. F. Moler at Miliville. AW. Johnston's company will pay a royalty of two cents on each ton of 2,240 pounds of stone, with a minimum of $400 per year. The company is under contract to begin operations not later than May 15th. The quarries at Bakerton are witnessing the greatest activity in their history. At present about 400 men are employed there, the largest number since operations started twenty-five years ago. Only a few days ago the company made a voluntary advance in the wages of the men. The wages of kiln firemen w ere increased from $1 50 to $1.60 a day. Other men about the kiln have had their wages advanced from $1.35 to $1.50 In the quarries, the rate tor truck loaders was advanced from 16 to 19 cents per truck. Touched by the new life that affects the stone industry, the Virginia ore bank on the river, near Bakerton, is to be revived. Work is being done preparatory to opening the ore mine and the shipment of ore to the furnaces at Everett, Pa., will be resumed.?Advocate. Some Facts About the "Salt Box." Eaitor Register?The old "Salt Box" was built and used as a carpenter shop by AW. Solomon Entler. When the Old School Presbyterians used it as a church the pastor was Rev. Joseph Atkinson, until they moved down street. Then Rev. Mr. Heaton was in charge until they Decame nnanciany emoarrassea anu nau to give up their property. Then for some time Rev. Mr. White used to come every two weeks and hold service on Sunday afternoon in the Reformed Church. Many of the congregation died and others moved away from town, so they were forced tc give up. The few remaining for a time held aloof until they realized there w as no hope, when a part went to the New School Presbyterians and others to the Episcopal Church. The "Salt Box" was used by Mr. Barstow for school, also by Mr. Price and by Miss Billmver. A man named Overmire taught singing school their two winters. Old Citizen. P.
