Roanoko bas a population of over22,

State in tho Union. Eight years ago it
had 000 people. Its growth at present
Is on a more solid basis and more rapid
fcha?n over before in its history.
Roanoko is located at tho junction of
the Shenandoah and Roanoko valleys.
Its altitudo is 907 feet and it is sur?
rounded by a rich agricultural and min?
Roanoko is distant just eight hours'
ride from Washington and Norfolk, nine !
from Baltimore, twelve from Fhiladcl- '
phi a, and foifrtocn from New York. It
Is situated at the junction of tho Sben- |

is now being built to this place from 1

trade of tho Carolinas to this section!
next fall. Tho Valley branch of tho
Baltimore and Ohio runs to Lexington,
forty miles distant, and a road filling
the connecting link will ho constructed j
to Roanoko in a short timo.
The growth of tho city dates from I
1S82, when the headquarters of the Nor- j
folk and Western were removed hero i
from Lynchburg, tho Shenandoah Val- ;
ley road was completed, and tho Roan- j
oko Machine Works, employing at pre?
sent 1,700 hands, was established. Since
then millions of dollars have llowed j
into tho city in tho establishment of
manufactures and other business e nter?
Coal and iron and tho rich agricultu?
ral lands of the section have contribu?
ted to the growth.
Roanoko bas sixty-fivo miles of streets
ftnd eight miles of street railway inside
the corporate limits. A dummy lino
extends to Vinton, a distauco of two
miles east, and to Salem, six miles
west. Throughout the city electricity,
in a short time, will take tho place of
horses as motive power.
Tho water works are sufiicient to fur?
nish a city of r.o,000 inhabitants. The
supply comes from a pure, cold spring
that gushes from the side of Mill Mouu- |
tain, and is without equal in any city
in tho country. It is undoubtedly a I

SUICIDE BROUGHT FAME.
A London Taper Tolls How Tom Thumb
Made III* lilt.
The beginning of Tom Thumb's ca?
reer of almost unexampled prospcrity
was not without vicissitudes, says tho
London Telegraph, in its Itanium obit?
uary. He made his first bow some five
and-forty years ago at tho Princess'
theater, in Oxford street, but the pa?
trons of a houso then dedicated to tho
performance of English and foreign
opera could see nothing worthy of ap?
plause in the clumsy antics of a diminu?
tive brat dressed up as a caricature of
the great Napoleon.
The '?general" was a complcto fiasco
on tho stage of tho Princess. The show
was transferred to tho Egyptian hall,
aud there, by what appeared to be a
stroke of ill luck, but which practically
turned out tobe an extremely fortunate
contingency for the dwarf, ho unwit?
tingly came in collision with the bravo
but hapless English paiutor llaydon.
The huge picturos of this ill-under?
stood artist were being exhibited in
one section of the hall, and attracting
only a few shillings, while the "gener?
al" in another part of the building was
drawing a hundred pounds a day. Short?
ly afterward llaydon, in a phroxysm of
insanity, engendered by sheer despair,
According to tho fitness of things,
this lamentable catastrophe should have
been the ruin of Humum aud his exhi?
bition. In the newspapers of the time
be was held up to execration as a "Yan?
kee showman" witli "yawning pock?
ets," and the diminutive urchin whoso
popularity had maddened the poor
painter was denounced as "a disgusting
dwarf." The takings at tho turnstiles,
nevertheless, increased daily, and Tom
Thumb only suspended his crowded se?
ances in Piccadilly to make a trium?
phant tour in the provinces, and an
equally remunerative Continental
How Dr. Variot V.lectroplates tho Hon?
Dr. Variot, one of the most distin?
guished physicians of the Paris hospi?
tals, makes a striking propostion for
the transformation of human bodies into
indestructible mummies by means of a
process of electroplating. l!y this means
the entire form is surrounded by an en?
velope of metal which preserves each
feature in tho semblance of life, says
the Scientific American.
The process is somewhat complicated
in practice although simple in princi?
ple. Tho. skin of the cadaver is first
painted or sprayed with a solution of
nitrate of silver, which turns the skin
an opaque black. The body is then
placed under a bell receiver in a partial
vacuum, into which vapor of white
phosphorus dissolved in blsulphatc of
carbon is allowed to enter. This re?
duces the nitrate of silver and leaves
the skin a grayish white, like a plaster
The next step is the application of
the metallic coating. The frame sup?
porting the body is immersed in a bath
of .sulphato of uppper, electrical con?
nection having been made with the top
of the skull, the bottoms of the feet, tho
hands and several other portions of tho
body and limbs.
Dr. Variot uses three small Chaudron
thermo-electric batteries to supply tho
necessary current, the passage of which
causes the uninterrupted deposition of
the metal. A continuous layer is soon
formed over the body, and the metallic
skin may be matte of any thickness de?
sired, but a coating of one-twenty-fifth
to one-fiftieth of an inch is sufficient to
resist blows and shocks and still pre?
serve the features in every delicate de?

officer led him into the central station.
"He was drunk an' disorderly, ser?
geant," said the oilicer. "I found him
sleeping behind a dry goods box in an
alley. When I pinched him he cussed
me awful, and raid he owned the alley.
So I lining him in."
"Is that true?" asked the sergeant.
"No, sir. It is a prevarication. A
long chain of < ircumstnnces has brought
me to my present condition. Now that
fate has tbrowod me here, I shall be
compelled to reveal the secret of my

Tho spire of St. Helen's church, in i
the Isle of Wight, which was built in ?
tho beginning of the last century and
shortly afterward struck by lightning, |
had, as was supposed, the large bell of
its chime cracked, as the tone was very
much inn filed. The. other day a church
