owned and conducted by the ftest Virginia i’uhlishins' Company, CHARLESTOWN, W. VA. Si PER YEAR. Entered at Post-Office as second-class. Thomas H. Mason, Business Manager. The citv council of Parkersburg, \\ \ a., has granted exclusive privi lege to the Natural Gas Company, of that city, to use the streets, alleys and public grounds of the city lor gas mines for ten years, natural gas to be used for heating purposes only. The company it composed of Sena tor < ainden, George W. Thompson, i \ H. Sattuck. Henry C. Jackson. J. N. ( amden, Jr., and others. -— Goal Tipples Completed.—The Orrell Coal Company, of Newburgh and Baltimore have completed their coal tipples at Parkersburg, W. V., and they are now in full operation. One tow of coal has been transferred from the Baltimore and Ohio to the boats, forty-five thousand bushels, and shipped to Ironton. .Ohio, to be used there in the shops. Not le9s t ban one million bushels will betrans- • terred at these tipples every year.1 and probably twice as much. Par- j kerslmrg is to be the Orrell Com pa-; nv's -hipping point to all points west and south. On Thursday, of last week, the 1 planing mill at Fetteruian, owned by i John T. McGraw and John W. Ma son, of Grafton, was entirely destroy-; ed by lire. The mill was valued at between $3,000 and #4,000, and was partly insured. Mr. Murphy, the j lessee, had no insurance on his stock and fixtures and his loss is a total one. -— ♦ — At the last scsion of the Legisla ture in this State a law was enacted providing for, and instructing the Governor to appoint, two mine in spectors for the State, which bo di vided into two districts, and con forming to the law Governor Wilson on Monday appointed Henry Cun ningham, of Mineral county, inspec tor for the first mining district, and H. J. Tucker, of Fayette county, for the second. --> 4 - ■ ■ There is some talk of extending the Virginia Midland K. R. from Strasburg to Mooretield, Hardy county. This road wishing to reach the coal region have surveyors en gaged discovering the most practi cable i ante. The Independent and Citizens Fire Companies, ot this place, will go to Martinsburg on the 4th of .In Tv. Mr. Arthur Shurtleff, Parker, Da kota. writes: “St. Jacobs Oil will cure one thing not advertised. It cured a wart on my finger which I had for years.” Price .’>0 cents. --—•—• The foundation has been begun, for the Episcopal colored chapel, on the lot recently purchased of Mr. Geo. II. Hagley. Their Business Booming. Probably no one thing has caused such a general revival of trade at Geo. T. Eight's drug store as their giving away to their customers of so many free trial bottles of Dr. King s New Discovery Tor Consumption. Their trade is simply enormous in this very valuable article from the fact that it always cures and never disappoints. Coughs, Colds, Asth ma. Rronehitis, Croup, and all throat and lung diseases quickly cured. You can test it before buying by getting a trial bottle free; large size $1. Every bottle warranted. - -r— < ask Sktti.ki*.—Mr. J. N. M isner, attorney for ('. ( . Gctzendanuor.has received through Messrs, haulkner .V Ingle, attorneys for the lMnenix Insurance Company, a dratt tor the face of the policy, in full settlement for losses sustained by the burning of his barn in November. 188o. The suit was originally brought in the 4 ircuit Court of this county, but was removed by the defendant to the 4 UVuit Court of the Cnited States, where it was pending at time of set tlement. Thus ends a tedious law suit to the credit and vindication of both plaintiff and defendant.— -Vor tinshvrtj Independent. ■ » w ■ At 1 p. m. yesterday our quiet city was greatly stirred up by the cry of fire. The Court House bell soon joined in,—and in less than a minute both lire companies with their respective engines, were rapid 1 y running out Samuel st..in direction of the smoke, followed and preceded hy hundreds ot heroic citizens, and small boys, who,were ready and wil ling to face any danger, in attempt ing to preserve life and property, lint all heroic ami gallant sentiments were soon dissipated by the absence of the fire and bv the heat ol the sun. The cause of alarm was the burning of a snu ill shed in the rear of Judge T. < ’. Creen’s garden. At Terre Haute, Champaign coun ty. Ohio, Mr. Charles F. Powell was postmaster, ami lie writes: "I have a fine lot of Polish Chickens. I gave them St. Jacob's Oil on a pill of bread for the croup. It cured them. The next morning I could not tell which of the chickens had been sick.” We defy competition in trade to cash customers. Wall it Horsey. Children Starving to Death, On account of their inability to di gest food, will find a most marvel ous food and remedy in Scott's Emulsion of Pure Cod Liver Oil with Hypophosphites. Very palat able and easily digested. Dr. S. W. Cohen, of Waco. Texas, says: “I have used your Emulsion in infan tile wasting with good results. It not only restores wasted tissues, but gives strength and increases the ap petite. I am glad to use such a re liable article.’’ Dr. Chas. C. Gar rett, Calvert, Texas, writes: “I have used your Emulsion for over a year, and have derived much benefit from it in the marasmus of children,being toleiated by the stomach when all other mendicants were rejected.” june4-lm. - - ■ — ■# - On Saturday last we made a fly ing visit to Berryville on business and whilst there had occasion to visit the Phcenix Carriage Factory of Mr. Geo. C. Thomas. This is the prize carriage factory of the Valley, and Mr. Thomas is one of the most genial gentlemen you meet with in a day’s travel. He at this time is working sixteen skilled mechanics and all busy; sends his first-class work all over the country. Has just finished two Wagonettes—one for Mr. C. F. Galloway, of Warren ton, Va., the other for Mr. Richard Osburn, of Winchester, Va., which are fine specimens. Quite a number of his vehicles are distributed thro’ this county, all ol’ which have given general satisfaction. His business motto, “first-class work for as reas onable a price as possible.” Astonishing Success. It is the duty of every person who has used Bosrhee's (Herman Syrup to let its wonderful qualities be kuown to their friends in curing Consumption, severe Coughs, Croup, Asthma, Pneumonia, and in fact all throat and lung diseases. No per son can use it without immediate relief. Three doses will relieve any case, and we consider it the duty of | ali druggists to recommend it to the | poor, dying consumptive, at least to I trv one bottle, as 80,000 dozen bot tles were sold last year, and no one case where it failed was reported. Such a medicine as the (Herman Syrup cannot be too widely knowu. Ask your druggist about it. Sam ple bottles to try, sold at 10 cents. Regular size. 75 cents. Sold by all druggists and dealers, in the I nited States and Canada. juneS-eow. Mr. W. W. Johnson and his as sistants have begun painting the Market House. The color is bright red,‘and will greatly improve the appearance of our public building. Mrs. Virginia Schley, wife of Col. Jno. E. Schley, died at her residence near Shepherdstown last Monday evening. Brace Up. You are feeling depressed, your appetite bad, you are bothered with headache, you Tire fidgety, nervous, and generally out of sorts, and want to brace up. Brace up, but not with stimulants, spring medicines or bit ters. which have for their basis very cheap, bad whisky, and which stim ulate yon for an hour, and then leave you in a worse condition than before. What you want is an alter ative that will purify your blood, start healthy action of Liver and Kidneys, restore your vitality, and give renewed health and strength. Such a medicine you will find in Electric Bitters, and only 50 cents a bottle, at Geo. T. Light’s drugstore. Some unknown rascal, who evi dently nurses a spite against Mr. Nimrod Trussell. of this place, cut off close to the boxes, seven pretty young shade trees, growing in front and on the side of Sir. Trussel’sres idence. This is a most cowardly manner by which to settle old scores and if the guilty he detected, he | should receive the full penalty of the law. 'flic Independent Fire Company had their pictuie taken in uniform with their engine and hose-reel on Saturday last. We are very anxious to see one of them, for we feel sure that such a group of handsome men will make a good picture. After the ordeal of having their pictures taken the company,commanded by Mayor Hough, gave a very creditable pa rade and drill. As the Harvest approaches the binder trade opens, and a farmer is besieged by half a dozen or more agents before he has time to alight from his horse; so we consider it commendable to inform our farmer readers u'ho sells tcMich machine in this place.

Lang, whose ser vices as a custom and artistic tailor our community were so fortunate in securing, informs us that on dune 1st, which completed his second month in our city, he had turned out |l,000 worth of suits. This speaks well for the work of our new tailor, and which we learn h;\s given gen oral satisfaction. We again call at tention to his advertisement, which appears in another column, ami to which he attributes a full share of success. You will always find him at his store.

The Philadelphia Record oC last Monday says: An eloping couple from West Vir ginia came to grief in this city on yesterday. They were Frank Mc Carty and Ella Vance of Wheeling. McCarty is 28 and Miss Vance 17. He was in the employ of the B. & O. at Wheeling, and he eloped with the girl to Ohio, where they were mar ried. Coming to this city he found employment on one of the street railroads. The published accounts of the elopement met the eyes of a Pittsburg woman who claimed to be McCarty’s wife. The father of Miss Vance came to this city and had McCarty arrested for bigamy. Circuit Court. The following cases have been dis posed of during the past two wrecks: Wm. McAbee vs. the B & 0. R. R.

The exercises as conduct ed and which consisted of dialogues and recitations, showed a.marked degree of intelligence amougthc chil dren and must have been highly grat ilying to their teacher. The power of memory in some of the scholars was put to a severe test, but was met with unflinching hearts by the bright eyed lads and lassies. Such marked advancement in the scholars reflects great credit on the teacher, trustees and commissioners of the Kabletown District. Rev. J. 0. Knott, once a teachcf in your county, now a minister of the gospel in Frederick, Md.. was present and addressed the scholars on the sub ! ject of “the duty they owed to them selves in being perseverant in their studies.’' The whole discourse tend ed to bend their young minds in the proper channel. Mr. Heflebower also made some humorous and ap propriate remarks, which shows that he is well qualified for school com missioner. Mr. E. Schaeffer,county superintendent, also entertained the 1 audience by a few well chosen re marks. Mr. Boyd of Fauquier Co., Va., gave the children some good ad vice on the subject of being temper ate in all things. There was a large attendance and everything passed off in a pleasant manner. Your correspondent met with social, honest greeting by your peo ple, and was royally entertained bv Mr. Jas. B. Clipp who, although a steanger to me, gave me a true Vir ginia welcome. Ed. Koontz Frederick, Md. The good people of Shepherds town and vicinity on Saturday last united in doing honor to the memory of the Confederate dead who sleep upon the pretty slopes of Elmwood Cemetery at that place. Promptly at 2 o’clock a procession was formed of the Shepherdstown band. South ern Soldiers’ Memorial Association, citizens, Ac., under the marshalship of Ca;>t. Lee IL Moler, and moved from town to the Cemetery adjacent. After music by the band, the Rev. I A. A. P. Neel offered a most appro priate and impressive prayer; the i Lutheran choir then sang a beauti ful ode, after which the lion. Wm. L. Wilson, in eloquent and compli mentary terms, introduced the Rev. Dr. A. C. Hopkins, the first speaker i of the occasion, who delivered one i of the ablest and most interesting addresses that we have ever heard ; on an occasion of this kind. The baud then played, after which Col. II. Kyd Douglas entertained the as semblage in a brief but eloquent ad I dress. Then followed the calling of i the roll of honor, singing by the ! choir, benediction and strewing of 1 flowers, after whieh the procession ; returned to town and was dismissed. —Spirit.

Harper's Ferry, June 14. Mr. Editor.—Our business boom continues anti so does the boom of the dt'namite. You would hardly know South Bolivar, so gieat a change lias been made already in the appearance of things there. Where there were hills three weeks ago there are now hollows, and vice versa. Ou Friday night a large stone came from a dynamite blast all the way up hill from the old Ri llle Factory to Storer College and struck the roof of that building, shattering several slates and no doubt rocking the students to sleep. Mr. Quigly, who is in charge j of the works, is said to be a fine en- | gineer, and parties who are supposed to be well versed in such matters say that his operations already show a superior knowledge of his profes sion. Mr. Saverv, and others con nected with the enterprise, visited j the place on Saturday, and if there be anything in appearances, it must be said, on the whole, that we have - at last secured the presence among us of parties who are both able and I willing to make Harper's Ferry j 1 what Nature intended it to be, a ; striving, bustling, business place. Your reply to your recalcitrant Fayette county subscriber and your exposition of Free Trade and Inter-, state Commerce, gave great satisfae ; tion to the people of Harper's Ferry and the neighboring county of Lou doun. You maj’ have heard of some difficulty existing between the stock holders "of the bridge across the Shenandoah at this place and cer tain owners of a ferry near the bridge. The controversy between those parties has been a great draw back to this community, and it is hoped that your powerful voice and ! pen will be enlisted in the cause of j free and uninterrupted intcreousc i between our people and those of Vir ginia ou whom we rely mostly for the supply of our market. A few days ago Master Briscoe, second son of Dr. Ranson, of this place, a lovely child and one of ex traordinary promise, fell headlong from the railroad tresfling on Shen- ! andoah street, a distance of many feet, but miraculously escaped with trifling injury. Briscoe is a great ; favorite with every one, and he is ; our especial pet. Wc arc happy in deed that he escaped so well, and 1 wc hope that he will live to realize the great things which he undoubt edly promises. His teacher, a man of forty years’ experience in his bu siness, says that he is the most in tellectual" child he has ever had in charge, and if the child be father to the man Briscoe, will certainly make his mark. To-day we saw a circular announ cing that in a few days a Republican newspaper would be started at this ; place. It is always well to have both sides of any question, and as the* other side has ever had a mo nopoly in the line of newspapers in this county, we know that you at least will welcome the stranger. Sheriff Hurst, it is said, had some j intimation of this ahead of anybody at the place, and it is believed that his late trip to Charleston was for ! the purpose of arranging with Gov. ' Wilson for calling out the militia at a moment’s notice to keep the peace between the new editor and those of j the opposite side in politics. \\ e are on the eve of many exciting elections, and wo think that Sherill Hurst has, in this matter, exhibited a most commendable foresight. Next vear we will elect to every office in the gi‘t of the people, from the head I of the Nation to the lowest rank ol township official, not to mention the Prohibition issue in our State, and it will be strange, indeed, if you edi tors do not make it lively for one an other, but, as the Irishman says, | "fair play and no favor, and may the Devil take anv one who would I spoil a fair fight.” Our worthy Sheriff himself, at heart, loves a lit ! tie shindy, and if you do not set the whole county by the ears and com mit actual murder or cause it to be committed, he will be slow about in terfering. Last week we promised to descant on Bill Anderson's famous quilt, but we deem the subject of too much im portance to put at the tail end of any communication, and we propose to devote a whole epistle to it one of these days. ^ • K.
