The date of his engagement is

season at the Grand and no amusement

The National Stock Company.
The National Stock Company, which
was organized in this city, will commence
a three nights' engagement at
the Grand Opepra House next Thurs- j
day evening. The company is a good j
one and includes Phil, S. Greiner and i
Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Watson, of this !
city. The first three nights of this
week the National is playing Graftori,
where they have made an excellent
impression, and have been doing
a good business. Fairmont theatregoers
should give them a cordial reminearance
"The Peacemaker."
There seems to be a great deal of
interest manifested by all classes of
theatre goers over the coming product
tion of Miss Mabel Morton Simmons'
play "The Peacemaker," which will
be presented at the Grand on next
Monday night. The piece was rehearsed
last night, and all of the Shod
points were brought out. There ate
a surprising amount of good things
about the presentation and it bids
i fair to be the best offering ever given
: here-by home talent.
! The play itself is above the ordinary.
! having fine comedy parts as well as
- capital strong situations and cli>
maxes. It is far better than the ordi1
nary vehicle that falls into the hands
" of the amateur. One of its novel
t features will he a may-pole dance to
; be participated in by eighteen young
c ladies, who go through the different
1 movements with the greatest ease.
5 The dance is woven in as a part of
the play, and it forms a fitting opening
for the second act.
Several of the parts are strong, and
3 offer elegant opportunity. The leads
i will be in the hands of Miss Simmons
r and the best of the local talent. No
J ppains will be spared to make the
3 piece am artistic success,
f Miss Simmons lias made arrangee
ments with Prof. Shaw, of the Grand
r. Orchestra, for special music throughe
out the evening. The selections of
e the orchestra for that occasion will
y be the best it has yet done, and the
r. incidental music will rival that of the
s large productions.

Senatorial Quotations. -j
(Washington Post.)
Senators seem to be much less estranged
in the use of poetry, when
eulogizing their dead colleagues, than
are members of the House. The
Hanna eulogies, as they appear in the
Congressional Record, c-oritain but few
touches of verse. Mr. Foraker did
not thus indulge, btit Mr. Scott prefaced
his remarks with:
To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die.
And Senator Blackburn brought his
beautiful panegyric of the Ohioan to
a close with this couplet:
When 'tis given us to choose the time,
if we choose aright,
'Tis best to die, our honor at its
" ~'7 Senator Elkins to

quote more poetry in his remarks
than all the other eulogists together,
as he dropped intoVerse at least six
times, one of his poetic selections

Senator Daniel, in referring to the
advanced age at which Senator Ilanna
entered public life, aptly quoted
the following well known .lines:
Chaucer, at Woodstock with the nightingales.
At sixty wrote the Canterbury tales:
concluding the quotation with:
These are indeed exceptions; but
they show
How far the gulf stream of youth
may flow
Into arctic regions of our lives.
Where little else hut life itself survives.
There was but one other poetical
quotation during the afternoon, and
that was the following lines which
r Senator Perkins pronounced as he began
his speech:
Friend after -friend departs;
Who has not lost a friend?
There is no union here of heajts
That finds not here an end.

John Marshall learned \to reason
when a boy on the farm. I His sublime
character and the constitutional
questions that came btjfore him
marked him as one of the ve^- great,
if not the greatest Virginian ?>f his
day. Many others might bi; referred

of the next century have sonicthing
to say about some of. the great
men of West Virginia?
John \V. Mason learned his first
lessons of honesty and industry in a.
blacksmith shop, and his great intellect,
his love of justice, his patriotic
devotion to the principles of
just government and the rank lib

A few years ago the people of
West Virginia were electrified by
the great leadership, the eloquence
and brilliancy of one of her own

" a single soldier, no matter who he

way of adherance to a great principle."
