Mc Mr. Fred Nay, of Shinnston, one of the defenders of the Union was in town on business Tues day. Moore Bros., the genial Buck hannon merchants, have added the Telegram to their list of weekly visitors. Richard Johnson (col.) is now in the "shining" business, and is really an artist when it comes to polishing a shoe. Give him a trial. Cecil Leach, the messenger at the Western Union office, and I policeman Andrew Lyon are now j wearing "bristling" new uni- i forms. Mrs. Ellen Smith was baptized at the Baptist church on Sunday morning. The baptistry was very prettily decorated for the occasion. Rev. M. A. Davidson was at Fairmont and Morgantown re cently, looking for antiquities and relics for the World's Pair. Rev. Davidson was appointed by the World's Fair Commissioners to look after this work in this part of the State. It is probable that there will be some litigation over the final division of the John G. Coffman estate. Some of the heirs have. it is claimed, received financial assistance heretofore that will preclude them from sharing equally with the others. Mr. f- J. Fesler. of Overfield West Virginia, has two horses ?f excellent breeding, whose ser vices he offers to farmers in that vicinity. Amsterdam. Jr. and j Aberdeen are certainly excellent i individuals, and Mr. Fesler de serves a liberal patronage. John Core, who figures in dra matic circles as a comedian, is visiting his sister, Mrs. C. C. Kennedy. John is a brother of Dabney Core, of this city, and his star rose when he played '.Peck's Bad Boy" a few years ago. Our generous friend D. B. Hankey, of Quiet Dell, was in the city on Saturday and remem bered us pleasantly. Read his advertisement elsewhere if you are needing choice lumber. By a new device that attaches to our large cylinder press the Telegram is cut in two parts as the papers are printed at a speed of from 1,500 to 1,800 per hour. This improvement was originated by the editor and works most beautifully. Thos. McCreary. the enter prising editor of theBuckhannon Banner, paid us a fraternal call on Saturday. He has just re turned from Washington and other eastern cities, where he purchased a large quantity of new type. Keep your eye on the Banner. The Public School Mirror was a favorite from the beginning. The press of the State have paid it most graceful tributes and with such educators as Prof. Lawrence J. Corbly, of this city, and Prof. Wilkinson, of Grafton, as its editorial inspiration it cannot fail to grow in usefulness. Clarksburg needs a more com modious public school building. The old one is indeed a very poor excuse for a oity characterized by so much wealth and intelli gence. Our present school prop erty cost the city but a trifle. The grounds cost actually noth ing and we believe the improve ment of this institution will be sanctioned by the majority of our citizens. Miss Emma Post, of Romine's Mills, is the guest of Buckhan non friends.... Miss Anna Clark, who has been indisposed for sev eral days, is rapidly improving. ....Miss Mabel McCormick is visiting InWashington and Phila delphia. ... Dr. W. R.

An interesting feature the week's exercises at the Court House has been the query-box which Miss Varnum introduced. Don't fail to see East Lynne to night M. D.

Lockwooa is said to have consented to stop in Clarksburg about the 1st of May and deliver her famous lecture, "Is marriage a failure?" She will attract a large audience if she comes.

Va., on the 29th of March, 1893, of consumption. He was a brother of Clay Hedges, of Lumberport, in this county. He leaves a widow and two children. Clarksburg furnishes superb beaux for Parkersburg, but some of the most charming lady visitors coming to this city are from that town. Miss Delia Haymond, a most agreeable and popular young lady, of Clarksburg, is a guest of Miss Juliette Blackford. ?Smith's Index. Mr. Frank J. Welch, of the well known firm of Welch & Kearns, proprietors of the elegant Third street tonsorial parlor, was mar ried on Tuesday evening at 4:30 o'clock to Miss Kate M. Kearns, daughter of John Kearns, of this city. The ceremony took place at the Church of Immaculate Conception in the presence of a very large audience. When editors offer to gamble or bet on the circulation of a newspaper it is high time for the moral element of the reading public to call a halt. The man who does it not only exhibits the depravity of his ambitions, but brands himself as a journalistic leper and an incorrigible incu bus on the profession he dis honors. The Telegram invites you to its press room, and is willing to guarantee that more pounds of actual, pure, "snbscribed-for" Telegrams are m ailed at Clarks burg than is mailed of anv other publication in the county. Miss Varnum, of New York, has been entertaining large audi ences at the Court House every night this week. Her masterly effort on Monday night, subject "Who pays the freight," was a very grand discourse. All her lectures have been good and those who attend tonight and tomorrow night will not have cause to reeret their action. Absolutely free and no collection. Miss Varnum has few superiors among the women on the modern platform as an orator. wu i mm imis Art* Orar In Eut Lvnnc, to-night (Fnd?j) *t Muaic Ball. Geo.

Already a number of them are complain ing and just how long the con tract will remain intact the future only, will tell.?Democrat. We' hope Cfc?rksburg merch ants will show their firmness by sticking to the 7:30 p. m. closing agreement. What we do will have its influence elsewhere. It is now "his honor" M. S. Riley, it you please. Scott says he has stopped traveling and will now assume tbirrole of justice of the peace. Rev. Thompson of the Baptist Church, in his discourse on last Sunday morning, paid a most graceful compliment to the life and services of that good man. Rev. D. G. Boardman, of the Presbyterian church. As Sun day night was Rev. Boardman's farewell sermon, Mr. Thompson requested the Baptist congrega tion to join him in attending the Presbyterian services in the evening. The result was an over flowing bouse and most delight ful anfl impressive service. Rev. Boardman leaves behind him the unmistakable evidence that he was an earnest servant of Christ, and all denominations of tho city will join us in wishing him well wherever he may go. ? , m .
