Yesterday morning John Lane, who lives on South Eofl street, was awakoned l>v his wifeandtoldto hurry and get up. lie jumped from the bed and hurriedly put itia trousers on. As he was doing this a pocket knife, the blade of which protruded from the pocket, caught him du the right I02 and cut a fearful gash several inches long. He bled profusely, but no atrious results are feared. A Party at tbe Fork. Only a fair sized crowd attended tbe privato dance given at Wheeling Park last evening, but, despite tbe meagre attendance, it proved very enjoyable. The Opera House orchestra furnished the music. It was originally intended to be held at Mozart Park, but was chonzed at the last moment by Messrs. Morgan, Miller and Guy Scott, who were in charge, on account of the cool weather. Approaching Nuptial*. On the 6th of this taonth will occur the marriage of Sr. J. G. W'alden, a well known and popular young physician of this city, and Miss Ada Morrison, daughter of Mr. Alexander Morrison, of the firm of Morrison & Obew. This announcement does not exactly come in the nature of a surprise, but novertholeis tbe many friends of both the contracting parties will shower them with congratulations. The ceremony will be private and will occur at tbe residence Dt the bride's parents in the East End. OH Down the ttlver. There was a considerable showing of both oil and gas at the Home company's well when the drill passed, through the Oow Creek sand. Indicatiohs were similar to those manifested at the Thompson farm well in the same sand. Both are being pushed,on down to the Big Injun. It is the general impression that the development of the Cow Creek sand would pay, and this may bo done if nothing la found below. There is considerable rivalry between the drillers at the Roberts oil well and the one on tho Thompson farm. The advantage so far is with the. boys at the Koboris well, the? being down about 100 feet farther than tbe other follows. Nov Tlmo Card on the W. ? I,. E.

Opining of Uuijr Institute Monday, September 4. That popular and successful institution the Linsly Institute i> now In the eightieth year ot its existence, and with every auceeding year it growl more luaty aud usoful in its miaalon to editcato the youth ot the city of Wheeling and vicinity. As tho fall term opens on Monday next, September 4, a recital of someoltlieadvantagesitoffereoverotber ichoola of ita class inny not be amiss. The repntation ot tho school has becomo quite extended of late years owing to the fact that graduates of the Linsly are received on certificate at many of tho foremost universities and colleges of tho (country, and othora have been admitted on examination. It will be >oen from this that the school lias attained to a grade on which Wheeling and the State may well be congratulated. Briefly, its design is to prepare boys for college, and to fnrniah a complete academical course for those who do not propose to take a fnll courso of study, the curriculum, embracing the English branches, the classics, and modern IdniriiaaAl find thtt Inatmollon ill BBfih department being given by teachors of experience and graduate's'of college. There U nothing more important in connection with the training of the mind of the youth than that ilia- physical condrliou should progress with the growth of his mental powers, for without proper exercise the one will suflor for the advancement of the other, and here is where the cadet corps of the liinaly Institute offers superior advantages over other schools. This department is under the\p"?Bal direction of an officer of the Uhited Stotoa navy, and the advantages that accrue to the etudont are discipline, roapect for authority, and a polish of manner not otherwise attainable. This drill is compulsory with every student, save thoso who are physically disqualified. This branch of study cannot be too highly recommended nor its benefits, both moral and physical, overestimated. The gontleman in charge of this department, \wlio has boen detailed by the United States government, in Lieut. W. 0. P. Mnir, whose record at the naval department is of the highest character. He has been an instructor in the torpedo service and assistant profeasor at the naval accademy. ? In addition" to iho drill, there are gymnastic exercise* in the spacions armory, the most modern appliances for the development of physical culture being used, in charge of a competent instructor. This feature is one of tho most valuable adjuncts to the proper mental trainiug and education of the youtli of to-day, as the results attained in this school unquestionably show. These features nloue make the Linsly Institute pre-eminently the best school for boys in this section of the country, and one which tho citizens of Wheeling and vicinity point to naturally with feelings of pride. Being easy of accoss and having the railroad facilities, now possessed by Wheeling, this. school offers special advantages to residonts of neighboring towns.
