According to a recent dispatch a New Jersey man was stabbed in a vacant place. Presumably six inches above his shoulder. A iikaI'I.ink m a South Carolina paper reads “Tillman scratched some;” but does not explain whether lie was using a pitchfork or picking blackberries. When Representative Longworth married Alice Roosevelt he was considered a good amateur violinist. Since then he has also learned to play second fiddle. When the farmers speak of their “Full cribs” one does not know whether this is the result of a Re publican administration or anti race suicide doctrines. It is said that twenty states have endorsed Mr. Bryan but his sat isfaction may be somewhat allayed by the tact that most of them are counted by all political experts in the Republican column. • rl iik opening up of the coal min ing operations in Logan county means progress. The building of a railroad tbroUgh the county means civilization. Republicanism follows in the wake of progress and civiliza tion as certain as day follows the night; and the day is not far distant when old Logan will come to the front with a bound, and roll up a good Republican majority. Watch Logan county. — Logan Banner. England is indignant because the President of the I'nited States is interfering with the spelling of the English language. The idea of that country is that the language is merely loaned to this country and that we are violating the proprieties by trying to make it over. England | is not fully acquainted with Thco ’ dore Roosevelt, even if it has met r his daughter, and it has yet to learn that if be should decide that the ■ JVfagna Charta needed lo be changed ’ he would not hesitate to reconstruct the venerable document. Tilk citizen soldier of W. V'a. made a showing at Ml. Rretna w ith the Regulars of which every patriot ic West Virginian is justly proud. General <»rant said that hi- officers bad nothing but praise for the guardsmen and complimented them highly on two very important requisites of the soldier—endurance and discipline. The men conducted themselves in an exemplary manner and rtieir 'manliness won the ad miration and respect of the regulars. , The Mt. Gretna encampment war a great exptrience for the guard.-men, ' and will be of value if the State ever has need of them in real service.— Kx. Tiie broadening effect of tiavel is apparent in Mr. Bryan. It look* now as if he were so broad as to crowd his party out altogether. The entire Republican Congrei sional and State tickets were elect- j by increased majorities for an otT year at the recent election in Y'cr mont. It is not Andrew Carnegie w ho should be giver the laurels for spelling reform. One Artemus Ward had views on spelling long before Mr. Carnegie promulgated his. Judoe M. If.

Co. vh. the Hoard of Public Works at Pt. Pleasant in regard to the valuation of railtoad property in Mason, Jackson and Roane counties, which has attracted so much atten lion all over the State, Judge Par sons has rendered a decision sustain ing the action of the State otlicials at every point. Bno. T. B. Garner, editor of the Blueticld Leader, has the sympathies of the entire newspaper fraternity on account ot the sad death of his little six - year old daughter, Margaret, who was a general favorite with all who knew her. On Wednesday afternoon, the titb inst., the little girl was playing alone on the second story portico at the residence of her parents and in her childish innocence touched a live electric wire while standing on the tin rooting of the floor, thu completing the circuit, and causin almost instant death. No more dope fiends at the Hunt ington Hospital. Thus the edict has gone forth from Miss Ticrnam, head nurse at the hospital. Suicides and those whe have need of a stomach pumping have become so distressing ly frequent at the hospital that the nurses and those in attendance have all rebelled and say they will have no more ot the would be suicides. Hereafter those who wish to depart this life by the carbolic acid, mor phine on other direct routes can go to the county jail and be cared for by the jail physician. No more of the hospital stomach pumps will be used on that class who cannot with stand the vicissitudes of life. The police have been notified that uu fortunate women and foolish men i who wish to die ahead of time are | to be taken to the county jail and looked after and sometimes brought hack to life. — Advertiser. Tiik opinion that, Mr. Bryan has thrown the Democratic fat in the tiro in his recent Madison Garden speech is strong and wide spread. He has been traveling around the world over railroads owned by the Government and like other tourists has found second-ciasg accommodations in the main more comfortable an I satis factory than first class in the United States, lie has not said so to the public but this •* a part of the experience of this distinguished globe trotter and bis family. I doubtless Government owner ship is coming and Mr. Bryan is not its first harbinger but its advocacy by him has probably as effectively spoiled his chances for the Presidency as Ins insistence , on the warped and worn silver | plank in the Democratic platform j of 1'JOO ruined hi* chances in the ensuing campaign. Mr. Bryan in a wonderfully popular man. Blaine and Kooscvclt alone in recent politi cal history arc to be compared with him. but, with all his cleverness, In appears to lack a certain saving insight, foresight and hindsight. Before his speech the hope of the Democratic party was turned to him with eagerness painful in its anxious intensity. It was believed an<l hoped that seven years of re. flection combined with rare oppor-1 Utilities for investigation and travel * would have seasoned the intractable ' sophomorism of fiis mental make up, but evidently it did not. Was li Ordained. Tho New York World is hs w* II known at this time for its opposition to William J. Bryan as any other one thing. It neglects no opportunity to oppose him. His coming out in favor of government ownership of railroads of course atlords it just the kind of an opportunity it wants. In .an article in which it shows the direful results of the free silver fallacies of the Nebraska statesman, it says: “So Mr. Bryan’s present railroad rem edy is worse than the disease. Heralded by enthusiastic if* morrats as the fore ordained candidate of the jiarty in llHib, lie has plunged headlong into the deep sea of state socialism. It the party does not follow, it will not be for want of his urging. It is futile to say that national owner ship of trunk lines and State ownership of local lines is his personal confession of faith. As a designated candidate his personal beliefs assume the importance of party principles. So long as he is in the running it cannot be otherwise. He has overridden his party before. Being greeted in advance as the indispensable leader of the Democratic party, what likelihood is there that from now on he will suppress his individual views? It is too late if he would. lie has shouted his new-fangled creed from the house tops, and Republican campaign speakers will not let the country forget its mean ing. They have been quick to expose its fallacy in the Congressional cani|>nign in Maine. Bryan ism, altered and made over for the same old nses, again strengthens the Republican and weak ens the Democratic party. If in spite of his latter-day vagaries Mr. tBryan is nominated for a third time, the election in 19<>K will turn just as surely on his scheme of national ownership of the railroads as it did in IHWi on his free silver programme. He will again have played into the hands of trusts and the railroads which he is com bat ing. By insisting on dangerous rem edies he will causa t he disease to be tol era ted as the lesser evil. He will give the Republican party once mote the ex cuse for rallying voters under the old llanna standard of ‘Let well enough alone.’ He will offer the Repuhlicuti party another indefinite lease of power on its own terms.” It looks as though when Mr. Bryan was born, the Democratic party was ordained to destruction through him. If it nominates him, the people will as in the past, repudiate him and his doc trines; if it does not do so, his follow ers will defeat it as decisively as they (lid iu Mini. Such a state of disorgani zation is likely to result in either case, as it will be impossible for tin* party to ever recover from.—Parkersburg State Journal, Barnum & Bdileu GoidIpq. Preliminary arrangements have been perfected for the coining of t lie Barnum & Bailey circus to Charleston. Septem ber I * ; Guilipolis, Sept. IS; Hunting ton. Sept, lit; Ashland, Sept. 20. This great amusement institution is recog nized as the leader in ail things pertain ing to urenic entertainment, and its ad vent lias a significance that rarely at taches to any other show. It is coming this year, it is announced, under condi tions that should, more than ever, as sure it a eordial welcome from the public. The modern three-ring circus, with its accompaniment of menagerie, hippo drome and horse fair is so distinctly an American institution that its coming is almost universally regarded as an essen t ial annual event. The Barnum & Bailey management announced that this season's urenic dis play is not only superior to anything hitherto offered even by this great show, hut also that the number of new amt sensational features and the magnitude of the exhibition are such as to make it probable that the present season will mark tlie absolute limit to which circus endeavor may reach. In tlie Barnum & Bailey circus of to day there is an array of feature acts re quiring paraphernalia sufficient to al most completely utilize t lie capacity of one of the live trains of railroad ears. The structural steel used in ... i’wirls of Terror,” and tin* Dip of Deuth” is said to be equal to that used in the const ruction of a good sized modern office building. This year’s new sjiectaclo is entitled "Peace,” and the costumes and accou trements for the display weigh nearly a hundred tons ; tin- jxdes for the hifi tents I represent the production of several acres of Woodland ; the ro|x>s, cordage and canvas used in fin* city of tents re quire sixty horses to draw them; the W’ood used in the seats necessary to ac commodate the 15.(.00 spectators that can lx* comfortably seated under the immense hippodrome pavillion would furnish a big stork fora more than ordi narily extensive lumber yard.
