They went hoiuc,and were so anxious to pet back t hoy asked for the game tobe called at the end of the sixth inning in ord^r that they might catch the 0:30 ti ?ain. The feature of the game on the part of the visitors, was the deluge of errors which they made. Another feature was the dandy work of Keefer and Quarles, and still an? other, was Doha's moustache.

John Ransey Becomes Insane from Circnmstanccs He Cannot Chance. The Bristol News says: "John Ran? sey was brought from the Blountville jail this morning on his way to his home in Scott county. Some time ago Buck Wood persuaded Ransey, who was an employe on the road in Scott county, to accompany him to Sulli? van county, Tennessee, to arrest a man. They proceeded to Sullivan county and went about the arrest in an illegal manner and were them? selves arrested for carrying pistols. Wood succeeded in giving bond, but Ransey was unable to do so, and was placed in jail. There he remained, and time and again he received let? ters from his wife begging him to come home and saying they were in such a destitute condition. These let? ters c'"f>r'JSb Remedy?

Tliis EstinmMe Vounjr ;En?Jj Clnlmcd l>y Dratli. Miss Anna Meade, daughter of Rev. W. H. Meade, rector of the Episcopal church, of tin's city, died yesterday evening at 4:20 o'clock at her home on Roanoke street, after a critical illness of several weeks. Miss Meade was well known as oneof the most popu? lar young ladies in church aud social circles in the city, and her sad and untimely death will he universally re? gretted. The funeral services will be conducted this morning at (5:20 o'clock sharp, and t he remains will be taken to Charleston, W. Va., her former I home, on the 10 o'clock Shenandoah Valley train for interment. Ther? will he a ve?try meeting at the church at 5 p. m., at which reso? lutions of respect to her memory, will be passed. The heartfelt sympathy of many sorrowing friends goes out to the family of the deceased in this, their terrible affliction. THE MARKET. Tho Prices Which Prevailed There Y?mer<lajr. The scene at the city market yes? terday was an unusually animated one, and everybody there seemed to be in a great hurry. A largo number of country wagons were in attendance, and everything that the season could afford, fremthir vicious cucumber down to the three year old hen, to be panned off on the susceptable man of the house for a spring fowl In the event of his being detailed to lay in Sunday supplies, was t?ere in great abundance. The pretty girl with her artistic market basket and hand full of small change, was thore also. She generally had an e} e to business, and seldom failed to rnako the huckster put in an extra po? tato, or an eitra something to satisfy herself that she was getting the worth ol her money. Asa gentleman re? marked there this morning : "If you contemplate tfoing on a hunt for a wife who has businesn capacities and independence, loat around the mar? ket, and spot one Take the girl who corners the dealer and always has the last word, and you have found the kind of woman you want for a wife.'1 The prices for vegetables are on the decline.

PuJjASKJ, Va., July 4.?There is no change for the better so far as the weather is concerned Yesterday the thermometer stood at 99 in the shade, find man and beast seemed to suffer a great deal. Today is still warmer by one degree, but as I am writing I can hear the distant thunder, and the clouds look as if before night we shall have a refreshing shower. 1 was irlad to se^'you whacked the Radford Enterprise forjpoking fuu at Roanoke, saliing her a"wny station."'

Hadford will be a good town some lay. aud I hope it is not far off, but neither the or Pnlaski will ever cope with Roanoke as to population ac? cording to my way of thinking. Let as all try .to be just as large as pos? sible and he sisters in deed and in truth. What say, Brother-of the Enterprise. xotes. Our churches on last Sunday were poorly attended, I suppose on account of the weather. Rev. George Stewart, of the Methodist church war too unwell to fill his pulpit, but Rev. Oglesby, presiding elder of the Grpen ville district, N. C, was on a visit to bis brother here, and was invited to preach. I will say, without fear of contradiction, that h? preached two of the best sermons that has been listened to here for years, and every r-ne that heard him earnestly desired to hear him again. A highly esteemed young lady, Miss Ohio Fleeman, died Sun? day morning, a few miles from town. She was one of Pulaski's most popular teachers, and was greatly beloved by all who knew her. Peace to her ashes. We have several cases of typhoid fever here, but I trust the physicians can conquer it. Our town is growing rapidly, and I think by Christmas we will have four thousand people here. The "Willing Workers," of the Presbyterian church, gave a lawn party in Mr. M. H. Calfee's yard la6t night. It was well attended and a nice little sum realized. And not only this, 1 feel sure that there was consid erable courting going on among the young folks, and one middle aged couple, who, I trust, got matters per? manently settled last night. I think they did from their looks. The Elfin troupe held forth in the opera-house last night, and will per? form again tonight and tomorrow night. Our people speak very highly of them as actors. A petition was handed me to sign yesterday, asking the council to remove the hog pens out of the corpo? ration. I told the gentleman I was a hog on that subject, as I have a fine pig at home and was opposed tomov ing,so we will have a hog and an anti hog party here. I am on the hog's side every time. Judge R.

How Offenders Were ''online*! in (bo 01? Days ol' Ronn okc?Tree Plaining;. It is getting almost too warm for suburban sauuterings now, and ti e average Roauoker keeps in doors on Sundayand contents himself with the Timks, a pitcher of lemonade and a big palm leaf fan. Truth to tell there is but little pleasure or profit to be derived from a Sunday school with the mercury nearing the hundred and not a leaf astir.

But it is the old story of the fox and sour grapes. *** Ina new city like Roanoke, real estate cranks abound, and thei. various schemes are soinetinn s amm iug. A Timks man ws speaking to an agent the other day, and in tin course of conversation, at least one good story was told. "We in^et with plenty of cranks it our business," said this broker "They all have some wild scheme wit) millions in it." One came into m; office today with a great scheme. H> assured me in seriousnets that hi would make my fortune. As I wa.1 not busy, I listened to him. Hisplai was to buy the space ;il>ove building: of moderate height. Of course,' saic this crank, 'we won't tell the property owners what we propose to do with this space, and they will think tboA have struck a snap and that we are fools when we offer them a few bun dred dollars for the Mr above theii buildings. When we have obtained this space, we can build as high as we please. Don't you see?' "I failed to see, and he left, mutter tering how many fool.' there are left." * Dropping in on a book seller dur? ing the week, a TiMBS man chanced to ask him what the average Roanokei read. His answer was brief and to the point.: "Nothing much," he said. "Why ?" "Well I'll tell you. They havn't flu time, and the newspaper is about as much as they can tackle And they only need that because it is necessary that every business m. a should know what is going on in the world. Aftei the newspaper, comes the novel ol a lighter character. They like Ouida, i*nd the writers of the French school Nothing heavy or laborious will suit them. They seem to t . ad for rest auc relaxation, nothing more. Uf course the ladies are excepted. T'nfey are, by far, our best customer.-:, and if it wen not for them it would not pay us to carry a stock of novels." * * * Speaking of literature reminds the writer that this section is a great field for the coming novelist. Uf course it has been more or less used by the iiotionist, but as yet it has never been touched Oy ttie httuil ot a groat master. John Esten Cooke, who lived a hun? dred miles from Roanoke, down on the Shenandoah road, has done more for it than any other author, though before the road was ever built "The Knights of the Horehoe" had been written. This volumo is the chronicle of a journey through the mountains of Southwest Virginia by a party ot cavaliers from the Tidewater section of the State. They explored all this region and camped for a while on the banks of the Roanoke near this city. Governor Dinwiddie, the royal ruler of the State, was one of the party and when they returned he hau a number o." niniaturo horseshoes made of gold and presented each of nis friends with one as a souvenir. They are pre? served by many of the P. F. V.'s to this day. * * * Mention was maae a moment ago of John Esten Cooke. Tins reminds the writer that he met Wiliner Welling? ton a couple of days ago. The young gentleman Is himself an author of ability and is now taking a horseback ride through the State. He knew Cooke personally and has a number of delightful reminiscenes to tell of him. The greatest of Virginia writers died last year. He war, passionately fond of tobacco, and when he passed away he had his favorite pipe in his mouth. This pipe is now in the pos ? session of Mr. Wellington, the sister of the novelist having ^resented it to him. * In the old days of Roanoke, when the town first began to feel the ellects of the new regime, rhe policemen had a hard time of it. There was no jail, but there was no scarcity of tough characters in the new city. The question was what to do with them. On pay nights, the little wooden building in which they were confined, would be as full as its in? mates, and then the prisoner* would have to be chained to a big log out in the yard. "One night" said an old policeman, yesterday, "we chainc 1 too many to this log," and they picked It up and walked off with it. We never saw it afterwards, but we did see our one? time-prisoners the nex': day. A ma? chinist had broken the links of the chains, by which they were held, and they laughed at us the next day. But now we have a jail that they won't carry off with them." The planting of trees dosn't seem to have a great many advocates in this town. It would oe well if the people would pay more attention to this. Nothing does so much towards beautifying a city as plenty of nice shade trees. Oheir bright fresh greenery sets off the houses to advantage, and then too shade iB a mighty good thing about this season of the year. On a number of streets it is noticed that the owners have set out shade tree". It is to be hoped that every one v ill follow their example sni ia the next ten years tie city w?l wear quite adit erent appear? ance from what it now does. Let us have plenty of treeB. *#* The basebaU season 13 now fairly commenced in Roanoke and the man? agement promises that in the near future we wiU see some good games. Though the team of this year is not so strong as it was last it is still known1 all over Virginia ae the crack team of the State. An 1 from appearances thus far it bids fair to hold the title. Some days ago THE TIMES received a letter from Ma.iager Moore, of the Alerts of Washington, making in? quiries about the Roanoke team. It seems that the answer was very satis? factory fur riie boys from the capital will play a series of games here next week with the hrme club. The Alerts are the crack am danr club of "Wash? ington.

Th.s week we will have the Alexandria I oys here for a series of four games. ? * * Captain "Canim" Maddox occupied a couple of chairs in Marshall's Cafe the other da/, as a reporter pushed through the dy greens and entered. He weighs po mds as usual, aud wears the same o! i moustache. "Say Jordan, hero he ccmes. Now lend me you:- gun.
