W k stated last week (making the
statement from the bed. information

Hurr,of Konceverte, who recently made

his assets about 8800 or $1,000. Mi.
1'urr writes us this week saying that
I'is liabilities are $1,600 and that his
notes and accounts amount to $2,800.?
He says nothing about the value of his
stock and whether he intended this to
'?e included in the $'2,800 we do not
know. We take pleasure in making the
correction, and hope Mr. Hurr may be
able to discharge his liabilities in lull
and be able to continue his business.
1'itoM Fayette papers we learn that
since the preliminary investigation of

' alls, by Squire Irwin L. ltigg at
Heepwater, on the 13th. mention of
which was made in these columns last
week, public sentiment, which at first
was much against ltigg, has turned in
''is favor and the shooting of Morris is
(>l?en|y justified? one of the justices
who sat in the investigation voting to
discharge him. The evidence showed
that Morris and Mrs. ltigg had been
cr'minally intimate, that ltigg if
'bil not know, strongly suspected this
Hll(l bad warned Morris that he would
shoot him if he did not desist. Among
the witnesses in the case was Squire
"'Kg's little daughter whose testimony,
,,l(?ugh not published in the papers,
proved her mother's guilt and was so
touching and pathetic that strong men
wept as they heard the child tell the
Mory of her mother's shame.

criinmallv assaulted by two negroes.?
The t wo fiends entered her house, where
she lived alone. One of them was
! armed with an axe. They threatened
her life if she refused to submit to
j their desires. She pleaded with them
not to kill her. and fought them for [
souie time. They dragged her outside ,
of the house, and one of the negroes
forced her to yield to his purpose. It j
is supposed that they were frightened
away. Four negroes were arrested
Tuesday by Harrison Ash and were
lodged in the Montgomery lock-up,
where they will be kept until Mrs. Had
ford is able to visit Montgomery and
identify or exculpate them.

Koul I* In y Knaurcltil,
Mrs. Zona (ileaster) Shue died in the
Kichlands of this county, on the 23rd of
January, and her body was taken out
to Little Sewell and buried. .Since then
ruiuors in the community caused the
authorities to suspect that she may not
have died from natural causes, in
short her husband, E. S., commonly
known as " Trout". Shue, was suspected
of haying brought about her death bv
violence or in some way unknown to her
friends. An inquest was accordingly
ordered, and, on Monday last before
Justice Homer McClung and a jury of
inquest, assisted by Mr. Preston, the
State's Attorney for the county, Mrs.
Sh tie's body wiis exhumed and a post
mortem examination made, conducted
by Drs. Knapp, llupert and Houston
M celling, Shue being present and sum
moned us a witness. From one of the
Doctors we learn that the examination
clearly disclosed the fact that Mrs.
Shue '8 neck had been broken. We hear
too that Sh tie's conduct at the time of
his wife's death and when she lay a
corpse in his house was very suspicious.
The jury found in accordance with
the facts aboye stated, charged Shue
with the crime of murder and yester
day afternoon he was brought here by
.James C. Shawver, John N. McClung
and Estill McUlung and lodged 111 jail
to await the action of the grand jury.

Church early in life under the mlnistra
tions of Father McElhenney, whose

stowed in youth and nourished until
death, had sanctified all her natural
gifts.'' She loved the house of (iod.

with her lamp trimmed and burning,
she went forth to meet the Bridegroom.

We have had a heavy rainfall, which,
with the melting snow, has made big
waters. The river is breaking over its
banks in some places, and grave fears
are entertained that property along its
course will be damaged ere it subsides.
One of the saddest deaths that has
occurred in our town for some time
was that of little Herbert, son ol Dr.
and Mrs. .1. A. Larue, who died at his
home half past three o'clock on last
Saturday morning, the 'Jnth, in the 12th
year of his age. The evening before he
was unusually cheerful, and did not
complain in the least of feeling unwell.
The next morning he was lying in the
cold embrace of death. Although his
health had not been good for some time
his death was unexpected at the time
and its suddenness a great shock to the
whole community. Epilepsy, accom
panied by paralysis, was the cause of
his sudden demise. Herbert was a
bright, manly little fellow, and his po
liteness and general deportment at
home, at school ? everywhere? was ex
cellent and endeared him in the hearts
of all who knew him. From early in
fancy he was the cherished object of
parental affection, and the grief of his
parents and little sister, Nellie, was
very touching, and calculated to awaken
the tenderest sympathies of the heart.
All day long the house of mourning
was crowded with people looking for
the last time upon the dear little fellow
and trying to console the bereaved ones.
His remains were interred in the Oak
Grove cemetery on Sunday, the lilst
with impressive ceremonies. The be
reaved family have the heartfelt sym
pathy of the entire community. Let
them rejoice in the consolation that he
is " Safe in the arms of .lesus."

Editor Greenbrier bulejK'ndent :
The agitation of the subject of the
; re -assessment of the landH of the State
i reminds me that the present manner of
! lump assessment as practiced In this
j State is most unequal and unjust. The
law should require a separate assess
ment of the agricultural value, the
timber value and the mineral value,
added to tho improvements. This only
can give a fair valuation. I n the case
of towns the building site value should
he assessed separately from the other
values. Due consideration should be
given to the great prospective decline
in lands on account of the growth of
the single-tax idea, which 1 think has
had a much greater effect in the depre
ciation of real estate values than most
of us suppose. M. A. Dt'NLAi*.

MoitR llUL'TK THAN MAN. ? TIlO
llintou Republican tells of the arrest of
K. M. Gallagher, a brakeuian on the (J.
?&U. Railroad, on a warrant sued out by
his 15-year old son charging the father
with cruel and inhuman treatment. ?
For some trivial offence Gallagher
jumped on his boy Tuesday afternoon
and heat him with a water-hose, the
brass nozzle cutting gashes in his head
and face, and almost if not quite de
stroying the sight of one of his eyes.
After he had knocked the boy down on
the floor he stamped him with his feet
and the heel prints are still plainly per
ceptible on his face. The boy was a
horrible sight, cut and bleeding when
he escaped from his miserable wretch
of a father, and popular indignation
was aroused to such a pitch that it
might not have been safe for Gallagher
to have appeared on the streets unac
companied by tho otliccrs of the law. ?
The man seems to be equally mean and
cruel In his ireatment of his wifo, who
is said to be a refined and educated wo
man. The man who would treat a dog
as this man treated his own son de
serves to be beaten with a bastinado or
huiip up by the ears.
Editor Greenbrier Independent :
Say to the people of (ircenbrier for
me that there are a great many valua
ble seedling apples scattered through
out our State that are truly worthy of
perpetuation. I desire to collect and
test these apples at the Experiment
Station, and I, therefore, ask your co
operation. I desire a few cions from
each tree that you know to l>e a natural
seedling worthy of cultivation. Tie
the cions of the different sorts into
separate bundles and give each a num
ber. Then write a description of the
habit of the tree, the color, flavor and
season of ripening of the fruit. We
cannot pay for this service, but we will
gladly refund the postage. Further,
any cions sent will be considered as
private property, and no trees or nur
sery Btock will be grown from them
without permission from the person
furnishing theoriginal stock. Origina
tor need, therefore, feel no hesitation
in sending cions as they will never he
used to propagate stock that might
come in competition with that grown
by the originator or finder Thanking
you in advance for any service rendered.

In Skahcii ok an IIeih.? Mr. An
drew l'rice, of Pocahontas, W. Va., is
in the city. Mr. Price comes to Rich
mond on a combined trip of business
and pleasure. For pleasure he brings
his bride on a visit to the relatives and
many friends of his mother, who was
herself a Richmond lady, and the busi
ness he is making out of his trip is to
tind some blood relative of J. VV. Da
vis.
The little story and the mystery with
which it is spiced makes it interesting
to read, and still more if one happens
to have the blood of the lamented Da
vis flowing in his veins.
More than half a century ago a gen
tleman came to Richmond from the
section of the Stato which is called
now West Virgina, driving before him
Li herd of cattle for Richmond's mar
ket. While on this trip he saw a small
lad named Davis in the poorhouse of
the city, and was struck with the hand
Home face of the child, and, perhaps be
cause he had no children to cheer his
own home, he determined to adopt the
boy. He was taken home, as carefully
reared and trained ;is one could wish
his own child, and when a man he
proved a friend truly to be leaned upon
to the man who had helped him in his
need. II is old friend died, lie was his
heir, and in coming years he prospered.
When almost an old man he married a
lady who did not survive him, and no
child came to bless their wedded life.
Two years ago the man himself died,
and left no will, but an estate valued
at about $5,n0o.
Karly after his marriage Mr. Day is
made a will leaving the entire property
to his wife. Hut this last testament at
her death was burned, and no other
was made. So now the property goes
first to any one, however distant the re
lation may be, who can preve a blood
kinship to the deceased man. Should
110 successful claim arise the estate will
go to the heirs of the dead wife. ? Rich.
