Sanner,the coal operator who so mys? teriously disappeared from an L. & N. R. R. train, between this place and Olinger, was found washed upon the bank of Pow? ell's river. The body had been aboro the dam, in the deep water, and was washed out by the recent floods. The body was found by Young Willis, who was workiag iu a saw-mill nea? by. His hair was al? most gone, and a deep gash across the forehead showed that he ev'dently bad pitched head foremost and struck his head against a rock, tn that case his death must have been instantaneous and without much pain. EVIDKNCK OF LNSOL.Vh MIND. Deceased had frequently given evidence of an unbalanced mind, and just previous to his unhappy demise was guarded at Middleuborough, for fear he would commit suicide. On the train with him was Mr. Joseph 0. Mayuor, who talked with him just a few minutes before he disappeared from th? train, aud who thought ho was very rational at the time. He leaves a wife and brother to mouru bis unhappy death. TTT?r-?? A new and fresh supply of T. W. Wood & fJon'B celebrated garden seed at J. W. Kelly's Drugstore. A Floral Occararlon. Jn the oecasion of decorating the Royal j Chapel in St. James' Palace, laet year, for the wedding-day of the Doke of Yerk, hcir-presumytive to the Crewn of Great Britain, ears Mr. Wallis, there was a pre? vious rehersal at the Royal Gardens at Frogmore. Every group, every window arrangement, every floral device, even to the wreathing of the pillows, was there tried and altered and improved upon with the greatest possible care. When a satr isfactory effect was at last obtained, the number and kind of plants required for every section were noted down on a plan to scale, and from this the total quanti? fies were arrived at. When four car I loads of fresh plants arrived next morn? ing at the Palace from the gardens, they were run off at once to their stations, and promptly put exactly in place. The seem? ing confusion of the palms anc crotona and ferns was really all order. The mar? guerites and era it caries, the acbineas and tjdeas, tho ericas, hydranghas and gloxi ncss, which looked so well on the grand staircase were all in definite positions, agreed upon hours before and marked on the plan, every fuchia, daisy, pelargo? nium,, bydraogea, canandium, and fern that stood iu the windows was on the spot marked for it, as were the mors oi> vious bamboos, and the pillar garlands of roses and ivy. Editor Post: The exceedingly fine wealhor we've had seems to be giving an impetus to busi? ness, and every branch of industry ap? pears io~be awakening with tbt new year. Bradftreet, Dun aud the New York Jour? nal of Commerce all tell of brighter times: and the many friends of Rig Stone Gap hail the tidings with rising hopes of better times here also. Don't let this "cold snap" dampen your hopes, or blight I the budding interests of the town. The Post, under itk new management, is lend? ing its aid to any and all projects for the advancement or benefit of the place. It has stopped harping on the string of what the Gap "is bound to be" with all its many advantages, &c, and begins its editorials with what "we hope to see as the result of the Big Stone Gap people." And among numerous other advantageous openings for the town, the Post mentions its special adaptation for an ideal sum? mer resort I most cordially agree, Mr. Editor, with you on Big Stone Gap as a summer resort. Let us bend oar ener? gies toward rushing tho place known as a summer resort, and manufacturers and business men generally would soon find out its merits for themselves. With tho view of making this a "summering town." I feel at re the lot owners here would find it a paying thing to build good dwellings ( n the vacant lots. Summer reuts would prove big interest on the investment and leave some money over to pay interest or. the unfenced and unimproved property in town, besides furnishing work to Lhe la? borers here, and tiie eby increasing the amountof "floating" currency, and help? ing to build a solid foundation por Big Stone Gap to grow on its me its, not on a boom. And let via all help. The plan suggested bo lore, of all giving a certain amount of work to the town has been fa? vorably rece'ved by many. So let us set to work at once 10 clear out me river banks before spring leaves ai d folage makes it. loo difficult. The one family who has always opposed this much need? ed measure of improvement should not longer interfere, thus marring the beauty and neat appearance of e placo. This clearing of the river bank? ii one of the first stops towards the advancement of the Gap as a summer resort, and it is also needed for health's sake. Whatever is done for tho ?p-building of the town, the poople must do, for if is quite evident by now that there is nothing to be hoped for at the hands of the "City Fathers," who. out of the large tax paid to the town by property holders, have done nothing to improve it. They seem to think the town will grow, as do the pigs in our streets, of its own volition, without adding one care to their heavily buidoned (?) minds, without any effort on their part, without any well-diverted business forethought, and without taking any time from their own business interests. Citizen?, can't something be done; Won't the Post call a meeting of the peopplc and obtain a permit from the Mayor to go to work at beautifying the streets and city environ? ments, giving the town an attractive ap? pearance, and thus take a step forward as a summer resort? Let the Post and the people give a long pull, a strong pull aud a pu.ll all together for the betterment of of our homes. Cms. ? Kock Me fco Sleep Moi-her." The poem "Rock Mo to.

Colored, Slav* HI* Wire' Paramour end Then Surrendered to the Authorities A deliberate murder was committed near Glade Spring at 6:30 o'clock yester? day morning, and if a correct account of the affair bai reached Bristol, lomebody ought to swing. It is a strong reminder of the Davis Sherman tragedy in title city a few weeks ago. All the parties are colorsd, and the circumstances are about the same. The woman in this case, however, was permit? ted to live. Clarksville is a luburb of Glade Spring, and is setlled by negroes. It waa there j that the murder referred to was commit-I ted. Ed Hughes was the victim, Bob Branch the murderer, and Hughe's inti? macy with Branche's wife the eause. It ssems that Branch bad expected this intimacy, and determined to discover whether there wore any grounds for his suspicion!. ?Accordingly, he left home Saturday evening, telling bis wife he would not re? turn. But shortly after six o'clock yes? terday morning he stealthily entered his home and found his wife and Hughes in bed tegcilier. They were asleep. Branch had a shotgun which he had borrowed from a neighbor. Raising tho weapon to his shoulder, and taking aim at Hughes' head, he fired. When the smoke cleared away Hughes was dead, his brains scattered over the bed-clethcs aud head? board. A gentleman who visitod the scene shortly aftorward save it was a sick? ening sight. Branch surrendered to the authorities, explaining tha4 he absented himself from home in order to "catch up with them." Public sentiment is against Branch, as his wife was a bad character.?Bristol News. A New Curo for Rheumutisiu. Josoph V.

The secret of the great success of the Cosmopolitan is not so hard to find, if one looks carefully over the number for Feb? ruary. A story by Valdes, the famous Spanish novelist, the first to appear in any American magazine, is begun in this number. Arthur Sherburn Hardy's sto? ry, "A Rejected Manuscript." is charm? ingly illustrated by L. Marold, who, we believe, makes his first appearance iu the magazine on this side of tho water. A profusely illustrated article on the de? signing and building ef a war-ship ap? peals to the interest taken by all fn the new navy, and a thrilling description of a naval combat under Iho significant title; "The Meloban and tho Pentherory" des? cribes, after the manner of the Battle of' Dorking, a possible sen-fight, the out-, come of nhiob is wa<chod by the entire naval world. "Gilding Fight" is an in? terest ing conl ribution to the nrobletn of aerial navigation by one who has studied, the flight of soaring birds in the East for twenty years. Blaine Goodale, who mar? ried a member of the Sioux nation, has some interesting information of Indian Wars and Warriors. T. C. Crawford, the Washington correspondent, gives the first half of a startling story, under the title of "The Disappearance Syndicate." The poetry iu this number by Sir Edwin Ar? nold, Graham R. Tomson and William Young, is unusually good. The Depart? ments, "In the World of Art and Letters" and the "Progress of Science" continues to have as contributors men famous in i both continents.

Regardless of the mud aud rain, the people began to assemble, and by the time the appointed hour of opening the exercises had arrived the house was full. Their attention was [soon turned to the string band, who "struck up" "Tho girl I left behindjme." After a short aalutotory address by J. R. Bailey, thjs much devoted teacher, the ex? ercises were opened by a most beautiful and pathetic song, entitled "Dring Sister Martha." Mhe beautiful and sympathetic way the three charming young Indies rendered it filled all with emotion, and fears could not ho restrained. "We then listened to several pieces rendered by the little pu? pils, whose ?yes sparkled as they perceiv? ed the reception given their pieces, as it was manifested by continued applause. Intermission was then given, aftor which exercises were resumed. A con? test for a prize, offered by the teacher, for the best essay and declamation was given. The contest was very close, but a decision was at last reached. Prizes were then awarded by ilia teacher, after which dismission wa3 given. The people then left for their homes. Mr. Baily left yesterday for Olinger, where he will take charge of that school. We wish him, as weil as the Big Stone Gap Post, success. Spectator.
