MONTGOMERY, W. Va.. May 2G.?
Charles Montague an.1 C. H. Montague
were arrested yesterday by Officer
Keeney at Boomer on the charge of
retailing liquors without a license, and
were brought here for trial before
Justice J. B. Chnmpe. where they
waived examination and gave bond for
their appearance before the criminal
court and also not to A'iolate the provisions
of chapter 32 relating to the
license matters. The fight, so theattorney
for the company said, was
really against the West Virginia Brewing
Company, which is attempting to
do a sort of saloon business in every
county in the State with only their
brewer's license. The Montagues say
they propose to continue selling and
the parties who swore out the warrants
say they propose to continue to
arrest them, so a situation may be
reached in Boomer that to say the
least is strenuous.
The Mail wants it distinctly understood
that we never claimed the
Charleston base ball team could not
be defeated. Some of the players are
too bowl egged to warrant that belief.

MONTGOMERY, \V. Va.. May 20.?
That sectional feeling, though dying
is not dead, as was 'demonstrated here
yesterday when a crippled Union soldier
approached a Montgomery citizen
who had served on the other side
in the late unpleasantness and hasn't
gotten over it yet. 1 he Union man
was horribly crippled, fie had been
wounded in the face, both legs were
shot off, and or*.e of his arms. In the
good hand he extended a small basket
for assistance. A number of Montgomery
people dropped small coins into
the basket and finally the old Con
federate came by ami alter listening
to his statement dropped rive dollars
into th.e basket. "Did you belong to
my old regiment? Were we comrades
in arms?" "Not by a whole lot," said
the Confederate. "Then why are you
so liberal to a poor Union soldier?"
"Because you are the first Yank that
I ever saw trimmed up just exactly
to my taste, and when I see one I'm
willing to pay for it."

Z'he Way the Piece of Paper Worried

Thomas A. Edison cnec told a friend
the story of his first p.cquaintahee with
any big sum of ruonr?vv It was vrfieii j
he was struggling w:.th his earlier inventions.
and he ha*: about as clear !
an idea of the value of a bank check
as the man in the moan, tie had final
ly sold his patent on the gold and stock
tTtrh'patnr* tn thc> Western Union Tele
graph company and bad called at its
office to close the deal. After a few |
preliminaries he was given a check for
.$40,000. lie eyed it curiously and up- j
reared to be puzzled what to do with
it. Observing his perplexity. General
L'efferts. then president of the Western
Union, told him that if he would go to
the Hank of America, in Wall street,
he could get the cash on his check.
"So I started," said Edison, "after
carefully folding up the check, and
wont toward Wail street. So uncertain
was I in regard to that way of
doing business that I thought while
on the way that if any man should
come tip to me and offer me two crisp
.$1,000 bills for that piece of paper I
would give him the check very quickly."
On Ills arrival at the Bank of America
he half tremblingly shoved his
check out to the cashier. The latter
scrutinized it closely, gave him a
piercing c;ln.ncc and said something
which Edison, being hard of hearing,
failed to understand. That was
enough. He was fully convinced that
his check was not worth $-10,000 and
again thought as he rushed out of the
bank that any man who would give
him $2.0CO for it could have it. He
hurried back to the otlice of the Western
Union and sni'tl he could not get
any money. A clerk was sent to the
bank with Liiin to identity mm.
This man." said the cierk. "Is Mr.
Thomas A. Eclison. to whose order the
check is drawn."
"Why. certainly. Mr. Edison." said
the cashier. "How would you like your
money?in what shape?"
"Oh, any way to suit the bank; it
doesn't make any difference to me. so
Ionic jus I jtet my money."
Edison was icivcn $40,000 in la rye
bills. After dividing the roll into two
wads of $20,000 each he staffed one
into each trousers pocket and made all
speed out of Wall street. The next
day he beirnn work on his fi/st Hew
