It U Mid that ''shopping" is a hobby with
moat ladies. If so, it is an eleasable one,
even though the dear ladies do only go "to
look and not to buy." For when so many
beautiful articles dear to tb« feminine eye
are displayed, surely the l«iy may ba
pardoned who goes only to feast lier eyes.
To aee, with many ladies, ia to covet, and
this ia why Blum and Marks went to snch
trouble to prepare for their spring opening.
They arranged'their beautiful goods in a
display so tempting as to fill with longing
tbe hearts of the five thousand ladies who
attended. For three days past, their in
viting store at No. 1106 Main street, has
been a perfect exposition of all th»t is
beautiful in thV wearing apparel of ladies
and children, arranged with exquisite
taste. I'pon a siantmg background from
the conntera to the tops of the shelves,
were displayed children's suits, infants'
cloaks, ladies' "innermost garments," par
ss"l-, laces, cloaks and a thousand and one
tbines of the kind, while in the center of
the room was hung a bewildering network
of laces, collarettes, Spanish and torchon
laces, tidies, handkerchiefs, gloves, stock
ings and embroideries
The most attractive features were the
while suit*. Ingenuity and taste were ap
parently exhausted in designing and beau
tifying their costumes. This firm makes a
specialty of its ri-ady-ma le garments. Tl»*v
are made bv tLe tirm, which, by the way, is
firmly established in this city and enj jys
the confidence of all who ever had any
dealings with it. It guarantees
its garments, both as regards the
quality and workmanship, to be the best,
and defy competition. In this it is borne
out by those whu have patronized it in the
past and by the really elegant and stylish
goods always to be found in stock.
A beautiful line of infanta' cloaks was
shown. It embraced ail of tbe latest de
signs and most fashionable colors. Cbil
drens' suits, white and colors, were also
shown in quantity, while new cloaks, for
ladies,in blacks and color?, were strikingly
handsome. The fashionable shades this
season are terra cotta, crushed strawberry,
electric blue and ox-blood, and these were
shown to advantage in a full line of silk
and lisle thread, mousquetaire and Jersey
gloves. The attention of the ladies was
also directed to the line of ladies'neck
wear in black and cream Spanish, Irish
point and Torchon laoes ami tne very
beautiful assortment in line
mull, with erjuisite hand and needle
work collars; tbe Hamburg erabroid- i
eries and the fall line of ribbons, ties and
handkerchiefs—all stylish and new. The
ir.faut robes, cloaks, shawls, bonnets, in
fact every thing in the line of apparel that
a baby could want, foriu a department by
themselves. Many beautiful spring wraps
caused tbe ladies to go into raptures.
But it is useless to attempt to describe in
the limits of one article, the myriad of J
beauties which might have been seen at
the gorgeous opening. Yesterday afternoon
Messrs. Blum and Marks were compelled
to clear their counters mi order to sell to
the many customers who came early to
select the choicest of the ->tock.

In Ibf UHll of thf tirgiuU Fir* n«<J
The tracts of land owned by this com
pany, on wbicli are located large deposits
of kaolin and lire clay, are situated pboui
ten miles southeast of Htatinton, Va., Im
mediately on the line of the Hhenandoab
Valley railroad and contain About 110
acres. The kaolin can be easily gotten at
with little expense, either by stripping or
shafting. A ahaft has been auok on the
property to the extent of ft> feet, but the
bottom of the kaolin baa not be«n reached.
The kaolin is struck at depths varying
from to 3!, feet below the surface.
Practically the supply of clay from this
great bed, which is of a very tine quality1,
may be considered inexhaustible.
Eminent chemists who have examined
theae clays, pronounce them of a very su
perior quality, Professor A. H. Hanchett,
ex-State Geologist of Minnessota. who not
only analyzed the clay, but also made a
careful examination of the whole property,
has written of it as follows : "The remark
able featnres of this tract, in mr opinion,
are in ihe quantity, quality .uniformity and
accessibility of the Kaolin depoeita that it
contains. From the attendant natural and
commercial advantages, the locality could
hardly be made more desirable for manu
facturing purposes. No reason whatever
augments itself why the wares of Sevres. in
cluding Camara and Parian atatuary, may
not be produced from this at as cheap r*tes
and e^ual excellence with the imported
Jaa C. Christy, Ksq., of Philadelphia, who
baa given the study of clays found in this
country and in Kurope his undivided at
tention (or many years past, writes as
"I submit my views relative to the
Kaolin, of Augusta county, Virginia, of
which specimens have been anaiised by
Dr. F. A. Gnrth, of Philadelphia, and Dr.
John Torry. of New York. The specimens
analized by these distinguished chemists
were of the crnde clay ana pronounced by
them to be of a very superior quality, and
1 am inclined to believe that it will approxi
mate the finest clays of St. Priex La Perche.
I mention this great and celebrated bed of
kaolin, because scientific and practioal
gentlemen know that it ia the largest and
lineal deposit of clay, in its normal condi
tion, ever discovered. Doth, from an ex
amination of the clay itself and the analy
sis of it by our moat eminent chemists, I
am led to regard It as equal to kaoiia of
Saxony, Bavaria and Hungary, and fully
equal to tbat obtained in Koglsnd by the
artificial washing of the decomposed gran*
ite found in Cornwall."
Mr. John 8. Lipscomb, of 8tannton, Va.,
writes, as to the superior Quality of this
clay for the manufacture of fir* brick, as
During my connection with tha manage
ment of the Virginia Porcelain Works I
bad manufactured from the rough clay ra
moved in uncovering the better clay, a
kiln of fire brick, as an sx peri meat Soon
afterwards I wis called to the superintend
ency of the Btauntoa Gas Light Company,
and at once proceeded to build np tha
benches with tueee brick. I can truthful
ly represent that these bricks In tha arches
of the retort benches ware exposed to •
white heat daring my entire connection
with the company (over four years), and
when 1 left tha brick ware ia apparently as
good order as when first pat in.
West, Hsrdwick k Co., and also tha Pot
ter* Cooperative Co., both manufacturers
of iron atone china at Eaat Liverpool, O.,
have made tests of this cfay and testify as
to tbe superior quality of the stay for tha
manufacture of iron stane china, sasaalas
of which can be seen at tha nflUr of tha
Company, 1321 Main street
Mr. John Osaterling, Present of tha
Central Glass Company, having tatted the
