Mr. Charles Dabney, a prominent citi
zen of this community, had the misfor
tune to lose under peculiar circum
stances Saturday two fine hogs.
"While he was about a mile from home,
on the way to the station to ship four
hogs, two of them died suddenly in tho
wagon. He released the remaining two
and drove them- home. The cause of death
is unknown. A similar case occurred at
another place near here the same day.
Visitors to the well-known Bullfield
homestead would hardly recognize «the
premises since it passed from the hands
of the Doswell family,
Mr. F. H. Nagel, late of Lincoln, Neb.,
purchased the estate last fall, and im
mediately set to work to modernize the
dwelling and its immediate surround
in £TS.
One change followed another, until the
buildings' outlines are perhaps its only
unchanged feature.
At a little distance the newly painted
building. With its deep green roof. con-,
trasting with a. cloudless sky beyond, is
strikingly sug-gestive of a verdant island
in the midst of a -placid sea.
Just a little to the west is located- an
elevated tank, which furnishes the water
that is convoyed warm and cold through
out the building. A gasoline engine sup
plies the power for lifting the water into
the tank.
A couple of well-appointed bath-rooms
will furnish comfort throughout the. year,
while the hot air system of heating has
robbed winter of its terrors.
From -the elegantly furnished sleeping
apartments above to the very basement
floor, the skilled hands of artisans have
wrought wondrous changes in making the
interior both comfortable and beautiful.
Gilt mouldings and costly paper adorn
the walls and ceilings, while handsome
carpets and 'mattings subdue the noise
of shifting feet.
Mrs. Thomas Doswell, its former hos
tess, during a recent visit, recalled for
the writer many lingering memories dear
to her heart;- and it was really pathetic
to hear her express the feeling of being
without a *"home" in her declining' years.
She felt certain that she had visited the
old homestead the last time.
Her new home in Chariottesville lacks
the endearing attachments that had their
origin and iniluc-nce during the best years
of her life at the old fireside.
The rearing of improved live-stock will
be the chief industry on the place,. but if

EL. PASO. TEX., March 31.— The usual
Sunday bull fight at Juarez, Mexico, was
accompanied by a somewhat unusual fea
ture, the goaded bull turning the
tables on the matador. Several- bulls
had been brought into the arena, ;
but the amusement they furnished]
was rather tame from a • Mexican
standpoint. There were many Amer
icans among the spectators who were j
somewhat disgusted with the brutal show,
as horse after horse was gored by the
tormented bulls, while the picadors and:
matadors escaped scathless. ...»
This was all changed, however, ..when j
Jarlingo, the premier matador, was pro
paring to thrust his Jong double-edged
sword into the heart of the fifth bull;,
which had faced him. It stood in the
centre of the arena bleeding from many
wounds.. Suddenly the animal made, a
quick lunge forward. ;So unexpected
was the attack that the fighter was un
able to make the customary, side-step. .He
was caught on the bull's horns in the mid
dle of the body and tossed about like a toy
balloon. Before he ; could be rescued Jar
lingo's clothing was literally stripped from
his body and his right leg and hip\ were;
severely lacerated- It is /.thought his- in
juries will prevent hinv ever appearing in
the arena again; as a? matador. ;* .;,
As the bull tossed the; man in- the/a ir,

" again toss it ; up, tlie Americans •;.• among ;

Effort for n. -Recess. .- ,' :
The Constitutional' Convention yesterday
decided by a close vote. and over the pro
test of the Republicans to take up the suf- :
frage matter in convention instead of in
Committee of the Whole. The vote on the
question of considering the subject in con
vention' or Committee of the Whole was
very close, but this is not regarded as
meaning that the clause adopted by the
Democratic conference will meet with
formidable opposition from Democrats on
the floor of the convention. It was merely
a difference of opinion as to whether the
,body should consider the matter in con
vention or in Committee of the Whole.
Mr. Blair, the leader of the minority,
proposed that the convention adjourn un
til April 3d and. then take the report up in
Committee of the Whole, but this was
voted down, jjg
After several resolutions had been.offer
ed and voted down, Mr. Glass moved. that
the convention take up the suffrage mat
ter, and the resolution carried by one vote.
All the rest of the day's session was con
sumed by Mr. Daniel in an explanation of
the provisions of the measure. He had
not concluded his analysis of the plan
when the convention adjourned until 10
A. M., to-day.
There were fifty-six members of the
convention present when President Goode
called the convention to order. Dr. Duna
way. offered prayer.
Mr] R. A. Ayers . off ered a resolution
providing that when the convention ad
journ on Wednesday it be to meet again
Wednesday, May 14th. He had no desire
to cut off debate on the suffrage report,
but it was necessary for a recess in order
to allow the Committee on Revision to
complete its work. The members are to
receive mileage, but no per diem during
recess. '
Mr. Robertson '.-. opposed the' resolution.
The members should remain here until the
Committee on Revision had completed its
report. If the members went home they
were liable to return here with new ideas
and new speeches.
Mr. Pedigo, of Henry, said only three
days were allowed for discussion. It
would take him three times as long to get
through with his speech in opposition.* He.
desired the people to know his opposition
to the scheme of abridging the,' rights of
the people and placing it in the hands of
an irresponsible oligarchy. People, were
tired of the convention, and he wished he
was not in it. Were the members of the
secret conference under whip and lash and
bound to support the agreement . of the
caucus? Would not some of the members
be free to chavge their; minds and cor
rect errors by argument?
Mr. Davis endorsed the views expressed by
Mr./Pedigo: itjwas.not fair to the minority
to cut off debate on the most important
question before the convention.
Mr. Barbour favored the recess, but op
posed fixing time now for the adjourn
Mr. Ayers said he had no disposition to
cut off debate, and if the opposition was
speaking at time set,. he would move to ex
tend the time. However, as there was op
ppsition, ji he i a,sked .leave to withdraw the
"resolution: /-•/ -•
Mr. Gordon, of Richmond, offered a
resolution, directing the secretary of the
convention to arrange for the return of
tne convention to the Capitol on and after
Thursday next. He explained that the
General Assembly will have gotten out of
the way by that time, and the facilities
were much better for the expedition .of
business. ..The resolution was adopted.
■ Mr:- .Wysor submitted a motion instruct
ing -the sergeant-at-arms to fumigate the
hall before the convention met there.
Senator Daniel, chairman of the Com
mittee on 'Suffrage, presented a resolution
regarding the question of suffrage. It
was not reported from the committee. It
was an independent resolution. He asked
that it be taken up in the convention.
Mr. Blair, of Wythe, moved that the
convention adjourn until April 3d, at
which time the' question of suffrage' should'
be taken up in Committee of the .Whole.
The majority had only completed'tlie're
port .and presented it to the convention
to-day, and it was unfair to expect that
tlie member of the minority sfiould be
ready to go into a cimsideration of the
question at once. Justice compelled him
to ask that the time required be granted.
Senator Daniel withdrew his request
asking for immediate consideration. \ He
had no desire to crowd the Republicans,
but believed that the question. had been
sufficiently discussed in the convention.
Mr. Turnbull moved to amend by dis
charging the Committee of the Whole
from the consideration of 'the suffrage
question. Lost— ayes, 29; noes, 30.
Mr. Blair's motion was then rejected
ayes, 17;- noes, -40.
Mr. Brown, of Bedford, moved that the
convention resolve itself into Committee
of the Whole for the consideration of the
suffrage question, whicn was supported by
Mr. Hamilton, of Petersburg;. Mr. Sum
mers; of Washington, who said, "the" siege
of Troy is on"; Mr. Blair, of "Wythe, who
said that Mr. Gillespie, of Tazewell, had
presented a suffrage plan. He desired to
hear Senator Daniel present the mapority
report and ■? would lead the minority in
opposition/ Mr./Gillespie would return to
the; city" this evening-
Mr. Brown's motion was defeated by a
vote of 31 to 23.'
Mr. Glass then presented the suffrage
resolution arid asked that it be given im
mediate; consideration. This was agreed
to— ayes, 31; noes, 29.
Senator Daniel was recognized to ex
plain the report. He went over the plan
adopted" by the conference, taking up the
various sections and giving an exposition
seriatim. He believed! it embodied the
best efforts arid views of a large majority
of the convention.
Major Daniel had not' concluded at 2
o'clock, . when the convention adjourned
until 10 o'clock to-day.

HOUSTON, TEX., March . 31.— An im
portant' decision has just been rendered
by the United : States Court of Appeals,
in the case of Dan Miller, a minor from
Texas, who enlisted in the army at San
Antonio, without the consent of his
parents. He deserted, was arrested, and
placed in jail, pending the decision:- of
ths court. , — • •■• ■
The court holds that the ■.enlistment
having made the prisoner "a soldier,: not
withstanding his minority, he is liable to
military law, just as the citizen who is
a minor is amenable to the civil law.'
The parents cannot prevent the law's en
forcement in either case.

NEW YORK. March 31.— Albert Patrick,
who was convicted ; on Wednesday, last
of the murder of " William Marsh Rice,
and Mrs. Addie M. Francis, with whom
Patrick boarded up to the time of his ar
rest, were married in the Tombs yester
day. The marriage was made by contract
in accordance with a law passed by the
legislature of this State in 1901, provid
ing for the legalization of contract /mar--,
riages entered into before' two;»witnesses.
The law directs that such contract must
be filed within six months, after its execu
tion in the office of the clerk of; the town
or city in which the marriage took place.
The legal witnesses to the. ceremony
were Patrick's father and his sister. Miss
Emma Patrick. Patrick's little daughter
was also present. Samuel B. Thomas, at
torney for Mrs. Francis, made the follow
ing statement to-day:
'"As counsel of Mrs. Francis, I advised
her that the contract marriage was abso
lutely valid and binding. Mrs. Francis
had been engaged to Mr. Patrick since
1898. It was their intention to be, married
on 'the day of Patrick's acquittal,' but as
the verdict was against him this plan
could not be ; carried out. They were
married properly and legally and as his
wife, Mrs. Addie Francis Patrick can visit
him when ho is confined in the "death
house, which ' would have been denied her
otherwise." • ''■''. '"" \'
When the contract ■'•w.as presented- to the
city clerk it was refused, the clerk-say
ing that the statement that the marriage
took place at "the corner of Centre and
Leonard streets, city of New York," was
not definite enough as to place. The clerk
suggested that something be produced to
show that tho contract was signed in the
Tombs or elsewhere, that the' contract
should give the street number of that

"Two unique: funeral -processions wero

mourners, and every man carried a rifle

of the Hatilelds— Thompson and son Epp—

of Saturday ' morning, the other victims
being John Rutherford and Harry Watts.
The Hatfields were buried on the moun
tain side. The other runeral was that of
John Rutherford. /.. . .. „ . > ; . " :
Both; were conducted at the same time,
and two/processions ."-were- in plain view
of each . other. The Hutherfords are
greatly wrought up over the killing of
their kinsman, and it is likely that a feud
which may eclipse, the celebrated Hat
field-McCoy feud, has just bqpun. Any
suspicious move on the part of the mourn
ers -in- either : procession would have
caused a reopening of the warfare.
