H., Friday morn ing a 12-year-old son of Johnson Jackson had his skull fractured in a runaway accident, a pieje of bone two by one-half inches be ing broken from his skull and left standing up on edge. He is still alive. The wife of J, M. Saunders, a saloon keeper of Elk City, Ka nawha county, started out on the warpath Sunday morning to kill her husband or get killed. She got a gun, loaded it, and started for the saloon. Arriving there, the bartender tried to pur suade her to go away, telling her that her husband was not there. She pressed in, however, and went to the inner doijr aod bat tered the door down, and opened fire on Saunders, who was in a private room. She was seized by the police and was taken away, but she swore she would kill him on sight as soon as she was re leased. She is in jail. Jealousy is the cause. Braxton Democrat says that a Mr. Hughes, of Harrison county, was in Sutton last week proving a horse that had been stolen at the weston fair. Mr. Hughes' horso had been ridden to the fair by himself or a neighbor and hitched up somewhere about the grounds. Some one traded the horse to a man by the name of Snider; Snider traded it to Gran ville Jones, Granvtlle to a man by the name of Wilson,and so on until it was traded to Morgan Johns. Mr. Hughes had been tracing his horse ever since the fair and only last week had the good luck to meet it in the road and recognize \t.?Olenville Ban ner (Oct. IS). Maj. H. W. Brazee, formerly editor of the TFe?? Virginia World, published at Hinton, and now Judge of the Criminal Court of Payette, has. if reports be true, I involved himself in a very se rious breach of law. The circum stances are as follows: Prom 1885 to 1889 the County Court of Pay ette county refused to license to sell liquor. Suddenly A. G. An son opened two saloons in defi ance of law, and was never prose cuted. Anson recently died, and among his private papers was found an agreement between him and W.H. Brazee, then the Prose cuting Attorney and now Judge of the Criminal Court, stating that in consideration of $350, the receipt of which is acknowled, tiie Prosecuting Attorney agreed to nolle all indictments found against Anson for selling liquor during 1889. Steps will be taken immediately to impeach and in dict Judge Brazee. It is rumored that he intends resigning.?Bon ccvertc hfcsxengcr. Mr. Herd's Vindication. One of the happiest men in ttiese days, .when thesilvermist is clear sng and the Senate is about to recognize the fact that it is or ought to be a business body, is Congressman Thomas Brackett Reed, of Maine. According to the Washington Post, Mr. Reed met his former foe, Senator Roger QunrleB Mills, who was so vigor ous in his denunciation of "the cjyirin the Speaker's chair," but who has come to the sensible conclusion that a legislative body should legislate. "I said to him,-' related the Maine statesman, "How arc you, my long-lost brothg er? How have you managed to conceal that strawberry-mark all these years? I always knew it was there, butl never saw it until you rolled up your sleeve the other day and showed it to the public." It is an apt illustration of the change in things. Some of our statesmen are very dogmatic indi viduals, but sometimes they col lide with public sentiment, and it knocks a lot of the dogmatism out of them. The filibustering in the Senate has shown to the pub lic the folly of allowing a minor ity to run a majority* Our people are a business people and they be lieve in common-sense. They will demand that the men whom they send to either branch of Congress shall represent this common sense as well as their various interests. 80, the reform which Mr. Reed had the nerve to begin is approach ing accomplishment and he has the right to be happy.?Baltimore American. Spain finds that she has a real war with the Moors on her hands. The latter attacked the garrison at Melilla, October 28, and drove the troops into the fort. The loss of life was large on both sides; the reckless Moors beir.g mowed down by cannon shot, The Span ish General Margalla, in command was killed. The vote for and against repeal in the United States Senate was divided as follows, politically: J For Repeal? | Republicans 20 Democrats 22 Against Repeal? Republicans ."..13 Democrat* 23 Populiata ...8 From this table it is easy to see that the Republicans deserve the' credit for the passage of the bill. President Cleveland was opposed by the majority of his own par ty and all of the Populists. It was a great victory for the people and a satisfactory answer to a great public demand, but like all great victories for the people it was fought and won by the Re publican parry, and it was done too, although the Republicans were in the minority. CATARRH IN TBE HEAD Is undoubtedly n disease of the blood, and as such only a reliable blood puri fier can effect a perfect and permanent cure. Hood's Sarsaparilla ia the best blood purlfl er, and it has cured many very severe cases of catarrh. Catarrh oftontimes leads to consumption. Take Hoods Sarsaparilla before it is too late. Hood's Pills do not purge, pain or gripe, but act promptly, easily and effl oiently. 25c, ConTincod the Court. It has not been so very long since the old English court rules passed out of observance, and when they were in vogue, nowhere were they observed more strictly than in South Carolina. A rule provided that, a lawyer when he spoke in court must wear a black gown|and coat, and that the sheriff must wear a cocked hat and sword. On one occasion a lawyer named Pettigrue arose to speak in a case on trial. "Mr. Pettigrue," said the judge, "you have on a light coat. You cannot speak sir." "Oh, your honor," Pettigrue replied, "may it please the court. I conform to the law." No, Mr. Pettigrue," declared the judge, "you have on a light coat. You cannot speak, sir." "But your honor," insisted the lawyer, "you misinterpret. Allow me to illustrate. The law says that the barrister must wear a black gown and coat, does it not?" . "Yes," replied the judge. "And does your honor hold that it means that both gown and coat must be black?" "Certainly, Mr. Pettigrue, cer tainlj sir, answered his honor. "And the law further says," con tinued Mr. Pettigrue, "that the sheriff must, wear a cocked hat and sword, does it not." "Yes. yes, Mr. Pettigrue," the court answered, somewhat impa tiently. And do you mean to say, your honor," questioned Pettigrue, that the sword must bo cocked as well as the hat?" u ?~er-h'm," mused his honor "You-er-may continue your speech Mr. Pettigrue." Dear Miss Mildred," wrote the young editor. "I find it im possible to tell you by word of mouth what I have been longing for months, iy. My palsied tongue refuses to do the bidding of my ,will when I am in your presence. I am under the neces sity, therefore, of writing to you to tell you how inexpressibly dear to me you have become and to ask you if you will consent to be my wife. In replying please be brief, omit the discussion of unimportant topics, and write only on one side of the 6heet." Wert TlrglnU The Pl?e? t?r !???* Men. Only a few years ago, says the B.&0. FiM, the recently elect ed Governor (MacOorkle) of West Virginia left Rockbridge county. Va.. for the sister State. With not a dollar in his pocket and only one suit of clothes to his name; .he started in with the practice of his profession, and to day Is the executive of one of the best States in the Union. We are so often asked by "young men, is there any chance for me in your country ?" Any one that is willing and competent to work can succeed in W est Virginia. Only last week we were going through West Virginia and met a gentleman whom we knew to have been successful in the tim ber sections of the State. He said "seven years ago I came here with a small amount of capi tal, came from pineries of Michi gan; went into the interior of the State, and am now ready to see my friends." It is reported that he has made nearly 1100.000 in West Virginia timber ; he has a fine home and is annually in creasing his fortune. Don't, reader, believe that all these op portunities have vanished. There is room for you all, and as the population of West Virginia in creases, and the new comers are generally successful.?Preston County Journnl. When a little Maine girl reach ed home last Sunday her father ask her liow she liked the minis ter and sermon. She thought a moment, and then replied, "Well, sometimes lie spoke real easy, just as if God was in the church and then hollered as if God was a hundred miles away."

Ex-Senator Ingalls had a re markable way of preparing his speeches, according to Frederick Haig, formerly his private secre tary. He first dictated a speech very rapidly. Then he dictated another and altogether new speech on the same subject, and taking the typewritten copies of both speeches, he would cut, paste, erase and interline until he had made one symmetrical and harmonious address out of the two. "Upon every other page or two," says Mr. Haig. "would be interlined one of those striking sentences which stood forth and commanded the atten tion of his audience. guaranteed cube.

Shoots of the vine bearing, say. two bunches of sound grapes each are placed in bottles or va ses filled with water containing charcoal in solution.
