She loft enough eatables to provide a good-sized family for a wook, and sho wouldn't allow her namo to bo used. Hut tho wholo TIME9 otlico foil in love with her for sho was as beauti? ful as sho was generous. Thon came olhers bearing gifts. An? other lady brougbt Hour, buckwheat, beans and potatoes. Brugh &.

"A big pot of soup, beef and potatoes is more tilling, moro nourishing, choaper and better than bacon and fljur. A dollar will go much further tbis way than tho other." The King's Daughters havo had sub? stantial reason for tho warm thanks which they havo c xtonded tbis opon handod and big-hearted Virginia gen? tleman for timely and generous aid. TlIE TIMES learns that tho mayor's relief fund is aln ady exhausted, and under advice of Dr O. F.

Agentloman said that a few days since a woman camo to his house who had borrowed a p?lr of shoos to come in, with a borrowed shawl to keep warm in. Hor husband had no coat, and was wearing an old basque of his wife's to keep off a little of tho cold. They had neither provisions, fuel, money nor work. Thu cold spell has suspended nearly all outside work and hundreds aro out of employment who depend on mild weather for a living. One man, a car? penter by trade, and earning 82.50 to SI per day, having no outside work, hunted for a job until ho got ono Sriving a wagon for 81 a day. This admirable spirit of self-help should ho an example for others in likeflx. The Times is confident that tho people will rise to the situation and rolievo all existing distress. AMONG THIS WORKERS. The I.tidles Tell of the I.nrgo Amount of S title ring In tlio City. The poor of Roanoko aro sufferlngjnot only for food, fuel and medicines, hut thero are cases where worthy peo? ple aro destitute of clothing. Only yesterday Borne of theso pooplo were taken caro of by tho la? dies of St. John's Church. Their con? dition was discovered only by accident, and when found theso unfortunates were almost nude. Thero is a dooth of charity in the benevolent organizations of the city. Though they give with anxious hands it is with the utmost ditllculty that those societies are ablo to learn of the distress. Tho worthy poor are cautious oven in their indigenco. A Timks reporter who visited last evening a number of ladies, who aro de? voting their time and means to tho amelioratiion of poverty in tho city, was surprised at tho unusual numbers of actual distress they cited. In ovory in? stance numberless now cases wero spoken of. There aro two benevolent societies in tho city composed entirely of ladies They aro the Ladies' Union benevolent Society of Roanoko and tho Circle of Charity of tho King's Daugh? ters. Of tho latter Mrs. Frank Huger is president; Mrs. Horace Patterson, vico prcsident; Mrs George R. Hendorson, treasurer, and Mrs VY. E. Mingoa, sec? retary. The former has for Its officers Mrs Lillie W. MoCoy, president; Mrs. Stuart, secrotary, and Mrs. Van Horn, treasurer. Tnoy aro doing wonderful work. Ono of tho earnest workers of last named society, Miss Josephino M. Woltz, said to tho reporior lastovening, while speaking of tho amountof povony in tho city: "Mayor Trout said to mo to day that tho sum appropriated for tDO poor was almost exhausted,'' and in reply to a query by the reporter, she said: "TberO aro a number af cisos of absolute desti? tution in the city, hut It seems as if they would not ask our aid. "Tho most necessary thing that wo need to further our object is the earnest assistan.o of the ladies of tho city. Wo want workers. Our meetings take place on the second Saturday of each mon'h, but if necessary a sptcial mooting could oe called in order to havo a thorough understanding as to tho disposal of tho funds now being collected by The Times Thero is great need of an im? mediate di- position of the donations. Wo are obliged in our organization to deal with various kinds of cases. Wo see, for instance, husbands who will not work, yot aro surround d by fami? lies who are in ab.olute want, but wo cannot withhold our charity from thoso two fold sufferers. "Thero Is unusual sufTorintr in the eastern portion of tho city, especially among tho colored washerwomen, as during the c >ld weather they have been unable to procure water with which to do their washing. It is a peculiar cir? cumstance that wo are never obliged to help widows, th-> calls being m.tdo mostly by mothers who are burdened with indolent husbands. The poor need clothes moro than anything else. Wo advanced SS to day for clothos to a fam? ily iu tho north western part of tho town, who wprt almost nude. U'There are somo und"serving poor who are tnken care of for the sake of their cnildron, yt thev still write beg? ging letters. For this reason uharity hbouM be organized.

They wore mot by Webb C. Hayos and Colonel Corbin and driven at once to Spiegel Grove. The crowd was motioned into silencn as the carriago parsed through tho crowded streets.

A doublo quartette, led by Prof. Alfred Arthur and David H. Kimberloy. of Cleveland, and Mrs. Dorr, of this city, rendered two hymns, of which tho ox-President bad always been extremely fond. These woro "When peace liko a river," and "God be with you till wo meet again." Tho beautiful notos of the hymns filled, the spacious house as though from somo seraphic choir, and woro broken only by tbe occasional sobs of the mourners, while men who bad faced an enemy on a hundred fields gave way to their pent up feolings.
