Last Friday John Crawford. Tuo-na? and
Abe Davis, of Cameron, W. Va., returnel
from a successful three weeks' hunt in tue
Mountains of Pocahontas cour.ty. They
report a very good time. They had a little
d'hi^ulty with some of the mossbacks of
thst vicnity who objected to have any city
folks hunt on "thar grounds," and" who
tried to tak« possession of a larsje buck
which Mr. Crawford had shot. It ts need
1? sss to say that John held on to the deer.
This made them mad and they undertook
to exterminate the Cameron crowd, but
were convinced in a very few minu'es that
they bad tackled the wrong citizens and
were glad to retire from the tield. The re
sult of the hunt was seven deer and tive
turkeys.

■ Dout the remarkable popularity of Mile.
Khea in Wheeling when the bell boy, po
litely but firmly, took a hand in the con
versation. observing it was none of his
j,at, but that the ladv in question was at
that mommt enjoying a ijuiet game of ten
cent ante, dollar limit, with the ladies of
her ccmpsoy. A thought llnsbcd aortas
our mii d that perhaps this was the uude
:in:«ble ton.i of sympathy that movedthe
um»s«-s and drew sou: to soul in aympsthet

at tl.e fifth floor and we lit out.
Tbe blue-blooded psragrapher of the
New York Herald in Thursday's issue, not
content with averting that the Appletons

prove that they went to England with the
Corquerer from Normandy, and that the
f« u. ale ancestor, Mabalia (which by
i he tye is a very unsatisfactory
way of commencing a" lineage,
because if she ever started, a family she
aculd probably change ner name) settled
in a forest full of apple-trees, h-nce she
was calltd Mahalia d'Appletone. This is
comforting: but if the said paragrapher
s opped to reflect be would remember that
auple in the Norman language is pornme,
as our irieml Jack i'omfrev claims thst his
paternal forefather was also with William,
who dubbed him Sir Pomtuefrey, because
he was inordinately fond of fried apples,

While excavating the ruins of Pompeii

has been dug up holding a bobtail flush in

'lbe young man who is fortunate enough
to have a predeltction tor tight fl'.ting
pai's and we 1 maile clothing is often the
subject of contempt and ridicule of a host
of his nferiors in every respect. The word
.1 nie is applied to him as the grand climax
of all that is effeminate and foolish by peo
ple who simply differ with his views as to
styles of clothing. Anyhow, this "Dude''
bw>iues3 is about played out. Let us give
it a rest and take up the Grievancs of
Giggling Girls. Th-re were three of them
in the orchestra circle of the Oper,i Hou->e,
at the K.ello« concert, who giggl.-d so im
moderately in the wrong place that they
ma.le themselves a nusance in their im
mediate vicinity. When we say they gig
gled in the wrong place, do not suppose,
fair reader, that we mean to say that they
should have gone somewhere else togig^le.
This was not our intent, bat in the delicate

ei'joyment, these three girls aw 0'iiet';iing

A botei ketp*r who, for the pa<t two
venrs. has sustained heavy losses from
pelt v thefts of provisions, linen, etc , be
ranie alarmed et tbe proportions his losses
were assuming, and put the matter in the
banus of a detective. » hose easle eye soon
fastened itself with suspicion upon no less
a »>ersou than the trusted housekeeper of
tl.e hostelry. He was laughed at by the
proprietor and staff, but insisted upon a
p. r opal seari h l>y a female assistant the
>anie evening. In spite of her protesta
tions and declarations of innocence, she
was conducted into a private room and
made to disencumber herself of her outer
garments, with the following effect:
She bad on an arrangement like an ordina

hoops were much heavier, Deing made of
half-inch rod iron, and provided with
hooks at intervals all around the interior,
resembling a circular butcher shop or maat

following remarkable list:

Two silver milk pitchers,

Two mayonaise of lobsters,

In our observation of j>ersons and things
a* they are, it seems to us at lewt remark 1
: ble that the American public should take
' sucli exception to the fact of Mrs. I.angtry
I receiving ■ fe^ polite attentions from Mr.
j Gebhart (or any ether man). It is not Iter
! fault, po><r ladv that she wasendowei with,
"Alas' This fatal Bewty" that brought

fail to see where Wheeling people see the
impropriety of the Lily and are blind to
I tne fact thst a very large number of mar

To the Editor of the Regi*ter.
I aui a constant reader of your entertain
ing paper, and have watched with dehght
your growing ccrrespondence on nutter
pertaining to those social questions which
puzzle the test of us, and at last have de
termined with fear and trembling to ask
for some advice in a matterconcerning my
self. which I am sure will be readily given.
My father was a wta'thy butcher in Elm
Grove, but alas' the competit.on of Chi
cago meat has driven him to comparative
obat uriiy a:.d J am in cooseuueucc com
peting to earn my livelhood by wrestling
with culinary utensels and chamber furni
ture. But I have d<»red in spite of my
lowly lotto fall madly, desperately in lave
with one who is, I fe'ar, as fsr above me,
as yon pa'e moon is to the top Il^or of the
McLure House, where I daily labor. He
is a reporter or poet or else writes tbe ad
vertisement for a daily p-p ricot y >urs,
alas). He is just too sweet for
anym'np — aud when I see him
pa?s by the windows with his darhns
beard parted iu ;he centre, 1 think he
looks like the great i'an God I read of^in
l.miy Louisa's Tovekno' in the Fireside
Week y or Younr Y.»te~, the V alter
Yelper. or the Y zoo Terror. 1 study these
delightful romances all my spare time. He
spreads his fe« t out when he walks and 1
am sure he must be awful proud.
Mr. Kditor, what hal I betterdo. I atu
afraid to write and ask him to meet me as
he mieht think me too forward, and to love
without knowing him would be a living
death. Kindly advise me in your next.
Yours anxiously, Lui.r B.
The course, of true love never did run
smooth, Lulu, and the only advice the
kind hearted Suxpay Kei;imer has for yoa,
is to cherish the tlame in secret and wa^t
and hope. You cannot tell your love, but
do not "let conc alment, liKe a w>rn i'

WHICH SHALL IT BE?
Sh:ll Our Bachelor# Marry Blondes

Cur Correspondents Come to the Front Ad
vccaling the Claims of Each
Respectively.
Last Sunday a correspondent of the Sox
DaV Kkuistar, who drsired to be married,
wiote to know whether he suould chose a
bor.de or brunette. The delicate question
waa referred to our readers aud drew out
tie following:
A €'ollcic<* Broil Blond*.
To the E<lit»r of the Register.
It is not often that I, a graduate of ML de
Cbantal, communicate with newspapers,
but on a question t f the uteres of two
styles of beauties—blondes and brunettes—
1 must add my testimony to the side of my
fair sisters. I am of the medium height
and weight, with fair blue eyes, and hair of
ripjling gold, such as Titian?, delighted
to psint. I'apa calls tre "Sunshine." I
found out while in college that fair-haired
«;irls learned faster and retained whit they
learned lor ger than the brunettes. I don'i
iiiefn from this that the dars girls are ail
nupid or forgetful; I just ment on it as a
>lght incident in favor of the blond-s.
Thtn I don't think that t,irls with dark
complexions are so careful in their toilet
js we cf tner mould. A speck of dirt is
pcinfnlly visible on us, while a brunette
c: u d carry it around without comment. I
could tell many iocts in this connection,
but I would not betray my f ex or mar your
bright paj»er, much less lower my own
dignity. 1 know very weil that the g-m
tlemen prefer a bright, cheerful blonde to
a sedate arid stately brunette, both for tem
porary and pernunent companionship.
My mamma, who is a b!onde of the fairest
type has told me that of her graduating
c:aes of twenty-four ttiris in a leading seiu
nary.there were twelve blondes and twelve
brunettes. Five of the girls were married
within a year, deluding ma. <>aly one
brunette, that she knows of, has been mar
ried. ana she was obi g d M put up with a
gentleman who was refused by a blonde. 1
write this more in pity than in self-glorifi
cation. Poor things."
Yours sententiously, Angela.

I'm a brunette and glad of it. We can
wear almost anything and it is becoming,
while a blonde has to spend all her time and
money in arranging colors that make her
look well. She has to wear pink and blue
and all those light colors, for if she don't
ste looks like a lily wrapped in mourning.
Then she has to buy brass or gold hairpins,
»Bd they can't be used for button and
<!«ve 'nocks because they're too expensive,
art! for the same rees. n you cun't let the
boys ste-il them. Kver yours,

Blondes Too Spirited.
To the Editor of the Register.
t is easy to answer the question a* to
■»;ich style of feminine beauty is mos'
•tuutiful. Blotd s, asjevery one knows, are
pale and ghostly in appearance, having
uild blue eyes, the hue of clothes which
mve cote through a "b'ueing tub" on
?h «!i y. The desirability of blondes
•e i .^ *< me to depend lar-ely upon their
i» i to ity. If they are "B it:sh blond»s"
t. y may be quite attractive. A blonde
ito.td iu white looks unreal, and suggest*
i u aterializert spirit. 1 think there are
more blonde old maids than old maids of
any other style of beauty.

My opinion on the complexion should
>e worth something, as 1 have lived in so
■ i» tv more years than I care to tell. Know
hen, while each class has its devotees
nnong the male sex, as a rule a blonde
tfritleman s«eari.ig by a brunette Udv
*rd vice versa, neither extreme is so much
tc.inirtd w» a type of beauty that softens
ih« darkness of the one and materializes
ibe lightness of tlie other. Such a com
bination outlasts the charms of cither of
the pronounced types, and will iv. a joy
forever. Indeed, it may be said that ut
forty a betwixt-and between has just en
tertd budding womauhood. Many inci
dents bearing witness to the truth of this
insertion may be saen upon the stagu at
ifce present dry. The brunettes of my

The answer to your correspandent's ques
tion touching types of feminine loveliness
is so obvious as to scarcely require an
answer. To one who admires an Indian or
a Malay for their peculiar complexion a
brunette, strange as it seems, may appear
beautiful. A true brunette hu a complex
ion which corresponds with that of an in
habitant >3f Southern Ita y. An inhabitant
of Southern Italy has a" complex: in two

The Davis Contempt Case Extended a Week
—Supreme Court Proceedings—Van
Walt's Bond—Writ of Habeas
Corpus Returned.
The only matter of any interest in the
Circoit Conrt, yesterday, was the contempt
case of Jailor Divis. The charge ag*init
him is that be wrote an interview, pub
lished in an evenirg paper, which preju
diced the c*se of Wo. Leeper, and in so
doing was in contempt of the Conrt. He
was represtnted by Capt Dovener, while
Prosecuting Attorney Jordan appeared for
the Court. The CapUrin made the point
that Jailor Davis was not the proper ptrty
to charge with the offence wiiicn should be
laid &t the doora of the paper itself. Hut
the Court looked at the tu.tter iu the lifhl
of coming from an officer of the court,
while tLe Captain insisted that the Ja tor
bad the rigtits of a citiz-n, as well, ami
could criticise in a public journal. "For."
said the Court, "a paper could naturally
say, 'Uuw are we in contempt for pursu
ing matter furnished us by an othcer of
the Court?"' The motion to quash the
rule, is overruled. The defense then asked
for a week in which to prepare au answer,
which was granted.

THE holiday trade having now
airly opened, and the all absorbing
'opic in the minds of our people
-ieing to know where to purchase
elegant Christmas presents, we
here answer the qdestion by can
mencing at the best first: Dillon
>s unquestionably the King of the
Holiday Trade. His store would
make a creditable display for New
York City; and he r.ot only has the
fir est line of Fine Diamonds,
Watches and Jewelry in the
city, but the largest Jewelry
establishment in West Virginia,
Eastern Ohio, or Western Penn
sylvania. Mr. Dillon having had
sixteen years' practical experi
ence in hand hp fine watches and
diamonds has a thorough knowl
edge of just what ie required for
the Holiday Season. He handles
nothing but the finest novelties j
known to the trade, and besides
cot trols the sole agency for the
following well-known watches,
and which no other jeweler in the
city can purchase, viz: The "Pot
ter" watch of Geneva, finest in |
the world; the "Lange" watch of!
Dresden: "Patek Phillippi 4 Co.,"
Geneva; "Vacheron L Coaataotin," j
Geneva: Rockford, Illinois, watch, j
Persons desiring to purchase
fir e goods will find it advantageous j
not enly to have Mr. Dillon's
advice in making their aalactions,
but to their interest to call and
compare goods and prices before
ourchasing. Hie trip East this j
Fall was mat?e with the sola object
of (electing the finest novelties
that could be purchased for the
holiday season of 1883, aid a visit
to bla atore will amply repay any
one who contemplates making val
uable purchases. His sp3Cialiy is
fine slrgh stoaes and matchad
pairs of Oiamonds.
