Pitched Great Ball.
The last of the series of games La
tween the Roanokes and Bristols was
played yesterday, and it was so one
siiled that not much interest w?;s
taken in it. Tim Bristol hoys are sick.
Thirteen to nothing in six innings
is enough to make them sick. 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.
Wlgmore went to the bat for the
Roanokes, got base ou^ balls, stole
second, went to third ona wild pitch
and home on passed ball. I Brodie
fanned out. Ford got base on balls,
went to second on Sands' safe hit to
right field, and third and home on
passed balls, .Sands, meanwhile,
reached third, and scored on wild
pitch; Quarles got first and second
on passeil balls and stole third. Kirby
flew out to Sheen, and A. Brodie
struck out, retiring the side.
For the Bristols, Frizzell, Hammer
and Winston struck out in one. two,
three order. Roanokes, :j; Bristol 0.

but was thrown out at second.
1. Brodie got base ou balls, second
on Winston's fumble of Ford's
grounder, third on wild pitch, and
scored on wild throw of Quarles' safe
hit to left field. Meantime Ford
reached base on Winston's error, sec?
ond on wild pitch and thence home on
the same wild throw that caused Bro
die to score, Quarles reaching third.
Kirby knocked a grounder to Wins?
ton which was fumbled,enabling him
to reach first, bringing Quarles home
Kirby then stole second, hut was
thrown out. A. Brodie reached first
on Vance's error, but Keefer retired
the side by knocking up a foul which
Lmlaney captured.

Bristols, struck out with great rapid?
ity and regularity.

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.
Tho Prices Which Prevailed There
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

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

esteem for its editor?a young man of

uustake when he attempted to build
up his town by running down another,
?specially Roanoke, the wonder of the
world and the pride of the Southwest.
Hadford will be a good town some

neither the or Pnlaski will ever cope
with Roanoke as to population ac?

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

hog party here. I am on the hog's
side every time.

Kind remarks about the loose am

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:

this crank, 'we won't tell the property
owners what we propose to do with
this space, and they will think tboA

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

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
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.
