OLDEN DAYS r? '. HoW the Heads of Families Secured Their Supplies. CATEREDFORTHEMSELVES Mr, Thomaa M. Hlltzhimer, Manager of the Commercial Cafe, Tolls ah In? ? tereatlng Siory of Changes In Methods. In ye olden times When to be a butcher meant first to stand tip and givo practi? ca I demount rat Ions ot your ability to carvo and chop, ana when hucksters wero practically non est because people .who'raised vegetables and fruits hired stalls and sold them' themselves"'? In this timo heads of families themselves went to market end were'up nnd away be? times not trusting as no?), tu servants end wagon hoys the nll-linporiutit task of convening to the .homo the supply of food for tho day. ', It Is a development, curious and In .. terestlng, which makes the markets of Richmond what thoy aio to-day and ?what they wero not fifty years ago. .Tho' change, Is a radical une brought about by various causes, chief among which, though the connection may not at once ? bo soen. aro', the abolition of slavery and the Introduction of the? modern telephone ?nd the delivery wagon, things In them ?eives very disimilar perhaps, but all . operating to. tho same end. ? Kadlcal an tho change Is, howeven' It Is not delect? ed by the ordinary run of mon who know absolutely nothing of the market condi? tions "befo do war." H Is only among tho old timers that tho alteration Is ap? parent. It Is only among, tbo oidor.fami? lies that the old-llmo customs uro to .any extent still kept up. ' BIG MEN- AVEN")'. . ?-.. . '' Of Chief?Justice Marshall It Is- told how upon oue occasion he mot in the market a young man who judged the great men by his clothes, took him to be a tramp and asked him if he did not want to become possessed of a shilling to bo made by taking a tnrkey home. The Chlef-Justlco readily accepted the pro? position nnd marched along with the young sport, swinging the turkey In bis ! :. hand. Later on the young fellow learn? ed to his profound astonishment and dis? may who it was that had trudged /along With his turkey.. The point In this ?lory Intereattig In the present connection Is that Chlef ?.'" Justice Marshall was In tho market, not ? for the. first time in Ills life but for once In'many times. It Is, said that he did the bettor portion of his own market? ing for so it waa with all In those days. l?ong after ..his time the practice was still .in "vogue and until after the war, along about 70, It still held good. AS H13 REMEMBERS IT. Mr. Thomaa M. Hlltzhimer. manager of the Commercial Hotel Cafe, Is the eon of a butcher, who was himself the ?on of a butcher, likewise tho son of a' butcher all of whom kept stalls .in the old First Market of niellinomi. Au a.boy, he used to hang around his father's stand and he recalls vividly what he saw. He speaks most interestingly of the time y and gives some curious'details of affairs from ISM to 1S63 wheri tho war began. '? - ."a that time, says Mr. Itltzhlmor, butch? ers had to get'license and to stand ex-. amlriallon before, thoy,- could, entsage .In - business. ? committee of fellow butchers .would get tho aspirant before them and he would have to kill a steer or some? thing of the sort and alleo It up to their satisfaction before ho could hang out his sign. Hucksters, except ohlcken hucksters, were a thing unknown. Veg? etables were raised In vegetable gardens all around Richmond. The owners of these *? g.-iCcns had stalla In the markets'ahd. sold their own stuff. The market of that . day was an uncommonly Interesting place. Fresh vegetables banked the stalls and made things bright nnd cool; fresh meats wero there In abundance; country carts stood around In great numbers. Every? thing was brisk and lively and business? like. COME EARLY IN THE DAT. By two or three o'clock in- the.morning, butchers were up and bestirring them eelvos g?ttlng their meat cut up and In ? proper shape for sale. Tho man who . ''didn't get himself around early was like? ly to suffer In his day's trade. Along to? wards; daylight patrons negati to come G?. Men prominent In the life of the city strolled In with a "nlggar" and a basket and doposlted them both somewhere while \ they'bought stuff and dismissed the poli? tical situation. Carriages drew up with ? men-and'women in them nnd sometimes children woro along taking an early morn? ing drive In connection with' the trip to. market. All this before, breakfast. The breakfast waa In fact bought then and there and eaten later. Up to S or '.! o'clock in the morning the market was a hum with business. Ser-. ' " vante were sent home with the stuff' bought or tho men carried It along in baskets themselves or took It In tho car ' riagefi. Many men stood around between,, purchases and talked about the things on their mind. ' By the time the day's work begins now It was all over then and the market bega ? to quiet down un? til the' next sunrise.? PURCHASES AND PEOPLE. The purchases made lUly' years ago wore of a different sort from those made now. Slavery was then an Institution, money was plentiful, so woro sorvunts and mapy negroes had to be fed, . Unlike the present conditions large quantities of different sorts of meat were bought for a day's dinner; shoats and sides and bo on smih as aro rarely seen now. Many peopln made a livelihood by raising pigs, for Bain whole. To-day suoli can hanTTy be sal<f;\o he the case, Several butchers had h?-r-nens around the city and caille ? driven ,lye a hundred or two hundred miles i. ??rovos wore slaughtered then and thoro. Anni of tbo more wealthy resi? dents iJ?sltated .not to'.visit one of these pens, i^tk out ten.or fifteen choice porkr? ere. end have them eent home where they would be salted down and smoked, Hams ?nd uaueago would bo made at home. Fina cattle raised in Southwest Vlrginlu, now largely shipped north nnd west came to Richmond then because It was bought ?nd paid for. When a fair was held the prize cattle were frequently bought by Richmond butchers and put on the mar? ket. They lost on it sometimes but they did it nevertheless. Mr. Hlltzhimer re? members a case in point. At a certain fair twin cattlo won the prize, Thoy were bought by Mr. Hlltzhlroer'a father, One was named John Minor Botts and tho other Henry Clay. . John Minor Botts weighed 1,730 pounds and Henry Clay 1,735 pounds. They cost tho butcher 1200 each. / Some of the men who were seen'dally ?t the markets by Mr. Hlltzhimer were James Thomas, Porcher Robinson, Wll^ Ham Robinson, John Enders, Luther'Lib by, Louis Webb, Mr. Dill, Ben. Rich? mond and many others, Soma of tlip butchers wore William Culltngworth, Joe Brown, (Jeorge and John Howard. John Aoree, John Brauer, Fr?d. Brauer, John Lindsay, "Valentin^ Heohler, Joseph Klrsh, William Lambert and others. There waa one woman butcher?Nancy Brltton?who devotod all her tlme"to selling shouts. THE CONDITIONS TO-DAY. The conditions in the markets to-day bear bul slight resemblance to those' recounted ebave. In this good year mar? keting before breakfast te a thing uri? MBOwn. U 1? pot until after th? moni- J In* meat that the d?y'e Work? begin?. Hucksters fill? the merket?, . FarmeTi nearby who.t?lee ?tuft and bring it to town Iti carte do not themselves own stalla any? longer, They ?ell their pro ducts wholesale to,the huckster?. ? ' Prominent men now give tittle heed t? the affair? of the market. Here and there may be eeen one or tw<??Mr, P, P? Winston for Inaiane* or Dr. ? J. ft. GaV? llck-wlio etili, with a basket on their? afin, may be eeen In tho market of, a morning'hitt;even they eat breakfast be* fore thoy strike out. it is true that miny tadles still visit the markets but even tills habit Is dying out. Telephones are being used more and more to tranetntt orders. Tho delivery wagon la to-day an Indlupcnsablo Institution. SlaVos aro no more. Tho eorVante which' Wore In ante-bellum days numbored by hundreds may now In most' casee be* counted upon the lingers of ono hand., Not so many mouths are to bo fed and butcher bills and general grocery bille have dwindled, Mr, Hlttshlmor was ask? ed for an average of a man's butcher'? bill for the month In his father's day. "About ?300," ho replied. Property Transfers. Richmond: R. K? Armour arid wife to George H.

V SUNKEN ORCHARD IN NORTHERN NECK Caused by an Earthquake. Some Say?Many Fear * Further Trouble. (Speelal te the Tlmfe--Dlspetcn,) HEATHSVtLLD, VA? March M.-The ?Inking of about a half en acre or more of land on The farm of Mr, Garrett Dun gan, situated at Lodge, Northumberland County, near tho shore of the Yocomlco River, whioh ocurred a few days ego and was reported in Tho Times-Dispatch, seems from all appearances to,havo been caused by a. smalt earthquake. Mr. Dun gan, who was sitting in his house, whioh is only about thirty.yards distant from the scene of tb;o supposed earthquake, heard ? terrifie roaring, rumbling noise, whioh, he said, resembled the roaring sound of distant cannon, but he knew It was too near for Anything of that kind. Ho rushed out of the house, whon lie saw the tops of the trees on this strip of land bending and twisting as if thoy would all snap oft. Going closer he saw what had happened. i ? The land sank about ten feet, leaving a perpendicular Wall where It divided from the remaining , level land. The trees and fence,-which were on the land are still standing as they were boforo the ground sank, but the earth wna cracked open in many places, some of the gaps being about two feet wldo and twenty feet deep before they filled. Most of them are olosod now. The sunken land extends about seventy-five yards on the shore and about forty yards back in the land. A large benk of blue clay, with huge pieces of rock and Iron oro" wore hurled up on the shore, and from this clay tho scent of gases can distinctly be smelled now. About twenty-five yards out in tha wator another bank of material about three-feet high was thrown up. Many claim that this was an earthquake, while others say It was quick sand that gave way and let. the land down. It has evpry appearance.of a small earthquake, with tlia exception that no warning was given, as It sunk suddenly and rapidly. Many think this la only a forewarning of a larger .earthquake. , Mr. Dungan is under? the Impression that this Is all of It, and Is not afraid of further trouble. He thinks, with some others, that it was quicksand that gave way and caused the sinking of the land, but cannot account for the gases and the upheaval of the clay, rock and iron ore. Whether this Is a forewarning of a larger earthquake or not remains for the future-to tell. At any rate It is the most wonderful natural event ever known In the North? ern Nock. ? . ? Attori Affairs.

Without any musical education, whatever, any piece of music ever composed can be played, not only correctly, but with . expression. NOT AN AUTOMATIC ATTACHMENT. The Pianola is not an automatic attachment for a piano. It is not, oven when in use, at ? taohed to the piano. It is not placod within. the piano to fill up the sounding-space and destroy tho instrument's tone. It is placed iu front of the piano, so. that its angers rest upon tho keys; but it is at all times separate and distinct from the piano itself. FREE PIANOLA CONCERTS DAILY, If A. M., 4 P. M.
