The train came in contact with a string of cars not .sufficiently far enough on the side track to miss him. In this way he is supposed to have been thrown to the ground and under the train arid injured as described aboye. ile whs tak?-ii to the olllce of Drs. first and retired scoring a run. however, died at the side without GREAT ACTIVITY ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. The Southwest to Itecotnc tlie Scene of n Great TraRic?The Norfolk and Wowtcrn** New Purchase?The Itonn okc mill Southern. THE HAGERSTOWN LADS JUST[?^?^S ESCAPE A GOOSE EGG. Activity in railroad circles all over the country has recently been very great, and in Thk Times news of a number of movements of interest to the people in this section have been, given. The Southwest is without doubt to become the scene of a great railroad traffic,R8 indeed, it is already. Railroads are great developers; rail? roads made Roanoke, and railroads are making the New South. Without doubt the most important event was the purchase by the Nor? folk and Western of the Seioto Val? ley road. This purchase has been fully explained in these columns by President Kimball, and that Roanoke will be greatly benefited by the ex? tension to the West goes without say? ing. 'Tt is difficult," says a Wall street man, "to Ugureout just now how valu? able an acquisition the Scioto Valley and New England is for the Norfolk and Western. It in ;s road with heavy traffic at low rates, and all its earnings during the reconstruction period were turned into the property. As soon as the Ironton connection is made, there will be a very considerable amount of business exchanged between the two roads. The fixed charges arc $200,000 a year, being the interest on five mil? lions of 4 per cent, honds. The earn? ings of the road independently have been at the rate of t"?per mile, out of which are to be met fixed chargt of (1,527. It appears, therefore, that if the road can be operated at 117 pur cent, there will be a surplus, and a larger one in proportion to tin- ec?n oiny of operation that can be secured above that figure. By this purchase the Norfolk and Western give three millions of their own preferred stock for five millions of the Sciota Valh and New England common, and get a line from Ironton to Columbus. They are rapiuly building to Ironton. and in a very short time their lines wiil be connected, and a new route opened froui Columbus to the Atlantic coast. Colonel A. S. Buford, of Richmond, president of the Southwestern Vir? ginia railroad, was registered at the Carrollton Hotel. Baltimore, yester? day, says the Baltimore Sun. Col? onel Buford is now pushing his road, which is projected from a connection at Cumberland Gap with the Tennes? see Midland road, that is now in course of construction from Memphis to Cumberland Gap. The Southwest? ern Virginia road will stt*rt from Lex? ington, Va., at which point it will connect with the Baltimore and Ohio and the Richmond ami Alleghany roads. It is thought that this may he one of the Hues to complete the southwestern connectiomof tho Balti? more and Ohio, and fiat Colonel Bn ford's visit, may be in connection with such an alliance. During the week, certificates of incorporation have been issued at Charleston, W. Va., to three new enterprises, ail undertaken by the Norfolk and Western railroad. The lines are laterals, each are over 150 miles in length. The Logan and Fairview is to be built up Twelve Pole river, in Logan county. The Chaterawha and Guyandotte is to extend up the valley of the Guyan? dotte river, and the Waterfield and Big Sandy will extend sontward down Tug river to connect with the Cha: teroi roads. Tho incorporators of all these roads are F. J. Kimball, presi? dent of tho Norfolk and Western : Joseph I. Doran, president of the West Virginia and Ironton road; William C. Bullitt, of Philadelphia ; ex-Internal Revenue Commissioner Joseph S. Miller and W. W. Coe. It is not at this time known when work will be commenced on these roads, but there is ample capital behind them, and they will, when completed, be lucrrative branches of that great tree, of which the main line is the trunk. It is said that the Roanoke and Southern have at last decided where they will enter the city and locate their station and freight yards. This has been the talk of t he * real estate world of Roanoke for the past week, and there has been any number of lit? tle plumes in the market as a conse? quence. No one could locate tho place and rumors were as thick as leaves in Valambrosia. Some said it was to lo? cate at one place, others at another, and the prices of property about the places went up with a jump,and th< n when the place selected was announ? ced the prices on the property, ex? cept that in the vicinity of the pro? perty purchased by the Company, went down to their normal level. But this was not before a good deal of property had changed hands, and now some who had planed summer vacations won't take them, and others who hadn't will.

HagerTtown the surrounding luiis and trees. The same lemonade vender with the same dirty shirt was on hand, and created more annoyance than comfort to the occupants of the grand stand. The game was called promptly at 4:30o'clock, and the retiring of the sun behind tho clouds socn after caused a great deal of comfort. Reck was the first man to go to the bat for the Roanokes, and struck cur. Quarles came next and made a safe hit down through center held, end got to second on a passed ball. Tho next bat manipulator was Ford, who knocked ball to left li-Id and got thrown our at first, retiring the side. Abigail went to bat for Hagerstowns and died at first.

Earnshaw retired the side by knock? ing a foul, which Kirby captured. Brodie knocked a tty, which Schley caught. Sands knocked a foul to Hums, and Kirby died the same kind of death.

Smith knocked a fly to Kirby, and the first, last and on:y run made by the Hagerstowns was made In this inning. Beck knocked several fouls, and hen a two-base hit through left field. Quarles did the same thing, bring ing Beck home. Beck came mighty near doing the same thing, but the ball got to second just an instant be? fore he. did.
