A number of our monlod men who havo been looking South for investments have discovered that Shenandoah is a much bet ter field for businoss enterprises and It would not bo surprising to hear of a con- tomp'atod movemont to furnish tho town with a shoo factory. Tho manufacture of shoes will pay, as they aro among tho most saleable of articles. Besides this labor is choap and thoro is plenty of it hero. Cheap fuel is also hero in unlimited quantity find it may bo depended upon that tho starting of ono shoo factory will lead to tho establishment of others, and all will mako money, , Sinco the collapso of so many of tho get-rich-quick companies thoro teems to bo a disposition on tho part of many qf our townnnon who havo mouoy to sparo to look for homo investments.

This will require inonoy and labor, but tho parties behind tho project will bo equal to all emergencies. Tho time is not far distant whon offers will bo made to take tho place off tho hands of tho present owners and givo them a good bonus. In fact totnpting offers to purchaso at a much bettor prico than was paid for tha placo by tho new concern havo been made, but thoy havo boen refusod. Major W. Gordon Jjillio Is pronounced by tho press and public to bo the greatest rifle shot In the country. His feats ol trick and fancy shooting are marvolous. Ono ol tho most remarkable feats is the breaking of a glass ball, held in tho hand of Miss May Lillio, whilo the former is sighting tho mark by means of a mirror. As a leader of cowboys ho has no superior. All tho acts presented aro the result of careful s.udy and ono novor tires wltnosiing tho various exhibitions. Miss May Lillie, tho champion female crack and rifle shot of the world, is an ox cellent lady and her performances are ox coedlngly wonderful. While seated on the back of a running mustang she breaks glass balls thrown into tho air by cowboys. Her style and grace adds materially in making her performance a success.

Shenandoah is a sporting town and any well-managed and legitimato sporting undertaking ought to succeed In it and pay a profit. A prominent gentleman said tho othor day, "I will havo to pay over forty dollars to clear mysolf of liability, butthat will not kill my appotilo for sport.
