Miss Nora Wootteu, the erratic young female, who attempted the life of Dr. H. A. Sims, has been acquitted on the ground of insanity. The case occupied the attention of the Hustings Court all day and the verdict of t he jury was not rendered till nearly six o clock. After much difficulty the following gentlemen were selected as juror.-: A. M. Nelson, J. E. Lewis, Henry Hohn, Howard Chipmau. .lames S. Simmons, George F. Dyer. W. C. Thomas, S. K. Law horn, Robert Hopcraft, James T. HTuton, Eugene Pord and .John S. Campbell. The prisoner was represented by Messrs. Phlegar, Berkeley and John? son, and Thomas N. Williams, esq., assisted Roy Smith in the prosecu? tion. The witnesses for the defense were Dr. Sims, Frank B. Caldwell, Rush U. Derr and Dr. W. 8. Gregory. Their testimony related to the im? mediate incidents of the attempted killing, the particolara of which are already known to the readers of the Tim Hs. ?r. Lewis G. Pedigo and H. W. Harrison were examined as medical experts and testified that they be? lieved the woman to be suffering from a peculiar mania, which r?u df red her course naturally eratic and at times violent. One of the strong symptoms of this mania is to imagine some association between herself and some prominent person. Sometimes a professional man. but most fre? quently a preacher was selected as the subject of her special attentions, and associated with her hallucinations. In most cases this imagination was car? ried out as if real at aggravated stages of thedisee.se. Dr. Pedigo testified at length of this disease and cited simi? lar eases. He also stated that he had known tin; prisoner some years and had predicted such an outcome of her Major L. D. Lorentz, of Washing? ton, is stopping at Marshall's Cafe and yesterday ate dinner in company with Judge McLane and a number of other gentlemen. The major wears a white moustache and a Prince Al? ii 'i t coat and thinks that his adopted home is destined to be the linest city in the world. He is interested in a new explosive and the factory may possibly be started here. # ?* # Major flutter was in town yes? terday and left in the early train this morning for his home in Lynchburg. The major is almost looked upon as a citizen of Roanoke. He has known th ? town from its infancy and laid it out. At this time the major is largely interested in a number of mining and real estate enterprises. It is such men as he that are making the name of Southwest Virginia synonymous with push, enterprise and vi^or. * * O We had the pleasure today of meet ing Mr. C. M. Teich, who is stopping a- Marshall's Cafe. He is a gentle man of rare attainments?one who is well versed and well read in all the important topics of the day. He hails from Bridgeport, Conn., and is a well built gentleman of about fifty, with iron gray beard and hair. He dresses in black, carries his overcoat on his left arm, is fond of a cigar, wears a plain black tie: and, in all, makes a neat appearance. He is correspond? ent for several of the northern papers.

Hotel Roanoke and it* chef. Hotel Roanoke is famous for its ex? cellent and elaborate banquets, and a Connecticut gentleman wiid is famil? iar with the best cuisine of the North, remarked the other day that he had never seen in Huston or New York su? perior in quality and general excel? lence to the banquet given the Mass? achusetts Press Association here oh the 15th instant. The man who di? rects the preparation of Hotel Roan oke's cuisine is F. A. Archambault. Mr.Archamb3i.ult is a young and rather stout Frenchmao. He is one of the linest chefs in the country, and, though not more than thirty, he has seen service in the Grand Hotel Paris desired to take the veil. She also stated that she wanted to marry one of two men and asked his advise as to which one to choose. He clearly saw signs of insanity at that time. The ease was interesting through? out, and the court room was crowded all day. every one straining their necks to jret ??< glimpse of the young woman. All the lawyers of the Roan? oke bar were there at different times during the day. Mr. Williams made a very short speech for the Commonwealth, and was followed by ( apfaiu ' W. W. Berkely for the defense. Captain Berkely starred off calmly and delib erately, taking a sin of water about every dozen words, but before he had been speaking five minutes he had become thoroughly aroused, and at times, his voice could be heard a I square away. It was only a few mo I ments before his standing collar had j wilted, and he unbuttoned his vest. I mopped the perspiration from bis I forehead with a linen handkerchief, las. his argument progressed. He I poured hot shot into Smith &; Wil? liams, on theother side, but they al? lowed a smile to play on their coun? tenances, stopping occasionally to take a note. Miss Wootten smiled frequently Williams , while the speech of Mr. Williams wa and London, and Delmonico's in New; being delivered. When he said that York.

Benjamin W. Brooks, of Dinwiddie countv, met with a severe accident yesterday morning in the Norfolk and Western yards. He was walking along the railroad track when he stepped on a stone, which turned under his foot and threw him down, breaking his right wrist and two of the mitacorpal bones in his left hand. He was taken to the office of Drs. Stone and Firey, whero he received the proper surgical attention. Mr. Brooks had been given a position by the Norfolk and Western Railroad Company,and but for his unfortunate accident would have started to work today. A Pleasant Surprise. Members of the congregation of the Lee Street Methodist church assem? bled at the residence of Mr. G. W. Sis ler Thursday evening and presented the pastor, Rev. W. T. Schooley, ?with a wagon load of delicacies and snbstantials which was given to him with the love and esteem of his con? gregation. The pa9tor returned thanks for the gift in a very approp-1 riate speech, and invited the visitors to spend their evening -with him, which they did, and a very enjoyable occasion it was. pied a chair just in the rear of the prisoner's, box, and was in a deep mourning attire. The jury was only out of the room ten minutes when the above verdict was brought in. The only thing Miss Wootten said when the result was brought in was "I had hoped to be discharged, I don't want to goto that horrid old asylum." She was remanded back to jail to bo sent to the asylum as soon as prac? ticable._ Against tbe Norfolk and Western. In the Giles county circuit court yesterday the jury gave Dailey C. Lindamood's aduiistrator a verdict for seven thousand five hundred dollars against the Norfolk and Western rail? road for the killing of Dailey C. Linda mood at Pearisburg station, in Feb? ruary last by a collision between two freight train. The law point decided in the case is that the conductor and engineer of one train of cars are not the fellow servants of the conductor and engi? neer of another train of the same company, but that they are vice-prin? cipals of the company. The point is a new one and has not yet been-settled by our Court of Ap? peals, except by analogy in other cases. The railroad company will ap - ply for an appeal. _ ; All who come to this city, either as visitors or as residents, are pleased with its location as well as with the e lergy and enterprise of its people. As soon as they have ascended one of the gently rising elevations of the e ty and viewed the handsome public and private buildings, many of them fresh froin-rhe builders hands, and all of t hem comparatively new, they are fi led with admiration for the city and its progressive people, and begin at once, if they are able, to make invest 11 ents with the ultimate intention of building themselves homes. In whatever direction they look they see eligible building lots and houses in different degrees of cons? truction. In the western part of the city the view, however is one of the most enchanting and that location for resiliences is most numerous and desirable. The land from (Trove street westward, with occassional un? dulations, rises gradually, till within a few hundred yards of Roanoke ri ver, where it slopes westwardly t? the beautiful valley border, the banks of that winding stream. .J ust where the last western assent commences, a handsome boulevard of ? mile in length begins, and from this to the north, and south runs numer? ous streets, intersecting others lead? ing east and west. These streets di? vide what was once the property of the We.-t End Land Company into blocks: which in turn have been laid off into lots, the most desirable to be found anywle're for the purposes of residences. ? The demand for these lots was such t 1 ?: r the eouipany soon disposed of all of them, and they are now owned mostly by single individuals. Me srs. James S. Simmons ?fc Co., are agents for a large number of these owners, and their numerous daily sales of Iota fully attest the great demand for them. The Roanoke Street Railway Com? pany have lately completed a line through the center of this property, and cars ruu hourly from the Union depot by this route to tbe western limits of tbe city. Here, removed from the bustle and turmoil of the business centers, tbe hard worked man can find the rest and quiet of a suburban home without any of its at? tendant advantages. The pure air from tbe surrounding mountains will sevlvify the blood which courses through his veins, and the panoramic views of all that is grand and beauti? ful! in nature or tastefui in art will sooth his mind when weared with the cares of constant daily toil. The elevation is such that every lot is thoroughly drained without beinsr abruptly steep or permeated with ledges of stone, so commonly the ease in mountainous districts. Many of the streets have been planted in trees which in time will give ? splendid shade and make the West End addi? tion not only one of the choicest parts of the city in natural advantages, but one of the loveliest portions also. The lover of nature can here gratify his tastes by adorning his ground or developing their productiveness in proportion to the area which he holds. Water, electric and gas lights, the telephone and the letter carrier sys? tem will be as completely within his reach as if he resided in the center of tho city, and a few yards from Iris door, ready for his call will be street cars to carry him to his place of busi? ness during working days or to church upon the Sabbath. All things considered, the West End property offers advantages to pur? chasers which cannot be surpassed, and, that these advantages are appre? ciated, the iiandsome houses already erected there, those m process of con? struction, or contemplated, abund? antly prove. A talk with the leading contractors of the city will satisfy the most skep? tical as to the splendid building pros? pects of the addition, and the records of the clerk of the corporation court ill show that many fine building sites there are owned by men of meaiis and culture, who have purchased sole? ly to buiid themselves homes of taste and comfort at an early date.
