TheWhltecaps at Gate City.Mur?
der Sarn Wood In Cold Blood.
Reliable reports have reached this place
of a terrible murder committed by a band
of outlaws, or a clan of Whitccaps,at Gate
City, last Monday night.
It seems from the particulars, as we
have been able to gather them, that the
whitecaps were somewhat intozicated,aud
were out for the purpose of routing some
bad women, who lived on the outskirts of j
the corporate limits. But these women,
apprehending the coming of the white
caps, made their escape. After they had
searched several houses thoy came upon
the residence of Sam Wood and demand?
ed eutraace, but being refused, until be
could get a light, thejj1 shot him twite,
from the effects, of which he died at six
o'clock Tuesday morning
Such lawlessness should not be tolerat- i
ed, and we feel sure that justice will be
meted out to the parties when sufficient
evidence haa proved, them guilty. J
Weave informed that Sam Wood was a
peacable aud law-abiding citizen, and bud
the confidence and respect of the people:
Throe parties have been arrested, but
not as yet, as we know of, been convicted.

A Xew Story By John Fox, Jr.
The Century for May makes the follow?
ing, announcement:
"The June Casiiav, which, will be issu?
ed Friday, June 1st, will contain the First
Chapters of a stirring three-part story by
John Fox, Jr., entitled 'A Cumberland
Vendetta.' Readers of the Ckntlky will
remember Mr. Fox as the author of 4A
Mountain Europa,' which appeared seme
months ago. The scene of the present
story, like that of its predecessor, is laid
in the Ky. Mountains, and the plot centers
upon one of the deadly family feuds that
now aud then crop out in the wild moun?
tain regious of the Cumberland."
ThcCentury has also issued a large pos?
ter for the use of newsdealers, aud to
attract the eye of the public, and in it
give* the place of honor to Mr. Fox'h
story. Along with the reading matter
thereon ie a full pane figure of a moun?
taineer in rough garb, with gun in bund,
and in an attitude ofdefiunce, being as he
is one of the principal characters.
The story will run through June, July
and August, and is illustrated by ten or
fifteen drawings, nine of which are full
page. The Century has placed a high es?
timate upon it, and has spent some $3,000
or $3,500 in its production.

Two Houses Washed Awav at GIMey?
Great Damage Hone to Property.
Last Saturday evening, between 5 aud
? o'cleck, at Gillcr, a place about seven
milea above here on the L. k N. K. R., one
of the greatost storms prevailed tr.at has
occurred for many years. Between the
headwaters of Loouey Creek and Preach?
er's Creek, on the top ef the Isom Rock
Ridge, the water streamed forth in great
columns, piercing pits into the earth.
? Within a quarter of a mile of the main
columns of water the hail fell so rapidly
it attained a depth of about ten inches.
On top of the ridge, where the water apout
occurred, it seems to have rua down the
gorge with the fury of the tlood which
swept away the city of Johnstown several
years ago in Pennsylvania, forcing before
it all timber and rocks, and, in fact, ev?
erything that impeded its course to the
valley below.
Mr. Enoch Kilbourn and J. C. Lewis,
wko live on the side of the ridge, had the
misfortune of having their homes totally
destroyed. It carried away the barn and
crib of Mr. Kilbourn, forcing him and his
family out into the rain and hail, which
was still falling, leaviag him homoless
aud with but little property,
j Mr. Lewis was absent and his family
was alone. Mrs. Lewis was preparing sup?
per, when suddenly a large drift of logs
?truck the house with tremendous, force,
knocking the roof and top wall from off
its foundation. The stove falling eaught
Mrs. Lewis, while a forty-foot log lay
near her body, but freeing herself from
under the stove by tearing her dress, she,
met her little ' daughter coming through j
an opening in the wall made by the log.
The other two children escaped by pass?
ing out at the opening made by the fallen
chimney. No serious injury waa done to
the family, but great damage waa done to
their property.
in lcb county.
A geutleruan living near Jonesville tells
us that down on Waiden's Ridge a water
spout occurred, and three familici?, living
near the banks of the llolstou, which
flows along at the base of this ridge, were
swept away and drowned in the debria,
which came dowu upon them with the
power of an avalanche. These three fam?
ilies numbered thirteen. We did not
learn their names. Tke people of that
vicinity have been engaged in making
a thorough search for their dead bodies,
but as yet wo have heard of no new devel?
Beyond all question or doubt, the
storm which prevailed throughout this
section of the couutry last Saturday night
wrought more destruction to life and prop?
erty than any that can be remembered of
by our oldest cirixena.

?Ji7or Pott;
Tliia is, as all know, one of the eldttt
cities in the whole tidewater btlt of the
Uuited Stetee, tod its age lends to it a
sort of quaintn?? and eharui peculiar to
itself. The street! are wsrrow, as if the
first settlers wanted to he aide to talk to
each other "across the way," hut they are
laid out regularly, and only servo to show
to be tter ad ran tagee the lovely grounds
surrounding most of thf dwelling houses.
for it is in the yards of residences that
Petersburg's age is most keenly felt and:
plainly eeeu; for they are not the latter
day cramped squares, laid out in trim
little beds, but large lawna aurreunding
tho houses, and containing great flower
bordered walks and kindly shade-trees.
Nowhere else do the lilies of the valley
grow Jn such riotous profusion, or the
yellow wall-flower come so seen aud shed
such rich perfume Rose a are out in all
their beauty, and the fields are bright
with wild-flowers, for there are fields
around Petersburg, even yet, altougk the
city is reaching out and most of the land
around the city is laid off into lots. But
at odd turns one still sees an old field,!
covered with the thickest grass aad bright I
with buttercup?, for tbe buttercups are!
yellower and larger .here than in most!
places. It may be because the people let
them alone. Just a few miles ont from
the heart ef the town, connected with
town by a dummy line, which also takes
visitors to the grove and the colored!
asylum. Just beyond them lies the gran- j
ite quarries, where as excellent a grade of
granite as can be desired is found in great j
abundance. Quarrying the granite is a
new enterprise, comparatively, having!
been begun about fifteen years ago, but
the people have not been slew to seise the]
advantages offered by it, and a trip to
Granite Grove affords a pleasant glimpse
of the thrift of the people and the beauty I
of the country. On either side of the
dummy track large fields of wheat oats
niake a most effective contrast with the
deep red of the German-clever fields,while
big wagons, carrying loads of the cut
clover gave just activity needed to make!
the scene one of perfect pasloral beauty. I
So much has been said and sang tbout
"the templed hills;" why doesnt some one
writs of the flewer-stream plains where
civilization has not so many drawbacks,
and refinement isn't a plant of such slow
growth? If all of Virginia were moun?
tains, although wendroua rich in miner
sis, what would be the state of advance?
ment of the population? What would be
the leading occupation of the people?!
'Sanging, I s'pose. But all of the Old
Dominion is not mountains, and the little
portion of the lowlands of the state which
lies along the Petersburg dummy track ia
bearing its vegetation all unconscious of I
any rivalry. Although the margins ofI
the branches and uncleared spots, the
blackberry and huckleberry bushes were!
white with blooms giving promise, at
least, of abundance of such small fruit to
the favored easterness; aud in the grove
the ground was covered with wild flowers!
and ferns. Sagas and marsh lilies nod-!
ded to uach other while gentians looked]
up at the trees above them with eyes ef
heaven's own blue. It seemed so quiet,
so far from business life and worry that it
required an effort to realize that half an
hour would be long enough to bring us
back to the busy streets where tbe cars J
and wagons make conversation impossi?
ble and bore evidence to the trafic that
make the little cockade city come in!
third in Virginia's towus.

best medicone for Coughs and Colds we
